Beyonce and Jay Z We Can't Find a House in L.A. On Our Budget!!!

4/28/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce and Jay Z have learned the hard way it's hard to find a dream home when you're on a budget, even if the budget is $80 MILLION!!!

Bey and Jay have been looking at homes in L.A. for several years, but they've come up empty. Multiple real estate sources tell us, the couple has been pretty firm they don't want to pay more than $80 mil, but they have looked at homes above their price range.

They looked at a Bel Air home for $135 million about a month ago, but our sources say they are NOT buying that house.

There are a few homes they're currently eyeing, but so far they haven't written an offer.

So, you ask, how can you have an $80 million budget and not get your dream house? Well, if you want the best of the best in the City of Angels, you just have to go higher. Check out the gallery.

Trump Tower Security's Not Leaving Even When Melania and Barron Do!!

4/28/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Trump Tower will remain what resembles a police zone -- barricades and all -- even after June when Melania and Barron Trump pack up and move to the White House.

NYPD sources tell TMZ ... security detail will remain mostly unchanged. A spokesperson said the security detail would be "adequate," but would not elaborate.

Short story ... the building will still be crawling with cops and Secret Service, there will be barricades outside the building and police outside will be ready for protests that get out of hand.

Fact is ... Donald Trump hasn't returned to NYC since he was inaugurated, favoring Mar-a-Lago on weekends. Once Melania and Barron make their move, the top penthouse will remain largely vacant for the duration of Trump's tenure as prez.

But our sources say it's still the president's home and the Secret Service and NYPD are aware he's extremely controversial and the building has become the place to go in NYC for protests ... protests that can easily get out of hand.

Law enforcement is also concerned if they let up on security it will send a message that the building is an easy target.

As for cost ... it's steep. The price tag for protection is around $100k a day, and it triples when Trump comes to town. It won't be much different after the entire family packs up and leaves.

4/28/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom stands to make a boatload of dough ... now that he's cutting ties with his Florida crib.

The former NBA star bought the Pinecrest pad back in 2003 for $2.975 million for his stint with the Miami Heat ... but he's finally ready to say deuces to the crib and possibly make a sweet profit cause he's asking for $5.2 mil!!!

LO's been renting out the 8,557 square foot house for a few years now.

The 6 bedroom, 7.5 bathroom compound sits inside an exclusive gated community, and it has all the bells and whistles -- from a grand foyer entrance and media room to a pool, spa, tennis court and, of course, a basketball court.

Bosco Vega of Douglas Elliman is repping Lamar in the sale and says working with him has been an amazing experience.

Justin Bieber Tickled Pink, Grilled Too

4/28/2017 12:30 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

You're not seeing pink elephants ... that's just Justin Bieber's new grill.

Sources close to JB tell us he recently bought himself a new pink sapphire grill ... which ran him somewhere in the ballpark of $15k.

The mouthpiece comes courtesy of Gold Teeth God -- a jeweler based out of L.A. -- who we're told Justin flew out to Miami last week to do an impression of his chompers.

The grill is a combo of pink sapphire and rose gold, with 6 teeth covered on top and another 6 on the bottom. It comes with 6 carats of sapphire ... and took about 5 days to make.

We're told Justin has bought jewelry from GTG before, so going to him for the grill was a no-brainer. He seems to dig it, too.

All we can say ... love your grill, Biebs.

@justinbieber Rose gold 6x6 light pink sapphires ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

Jefferson Starship Ex-Guitarist Sues ... Is This Gonna Stop Them Now?

4/28/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The former lead guitarist of Jefferson Starship is furious at other members for jacking the name and tarnishing the rock band's legacy ... according to a new suit.

Craig Chaquico claims 2 of this former bandmates and several other musicians are using the Jefferson Starship name, without permission, to land gigs and sell merch. Chaquico says the founding JS members all agreed to retire the name in 1985 ... and move on simply as Starship.

But according to docs ... David Freiberg and Donny Baldwin have assumed the Jefferson Starship name with a ragtag group who have no connection to the OG rockers. 

Chaquico says he did give another founding member, Paul Kantner, the right to use the name for shows, and he did while touring with Freiberg and Baldwin. However, Paul died in 2016, and Craig says the right to use JS died with him.

Chaquico wants Freiberg and Baldwin cut off from the name immediately.

FYI, Jefferson Starship -- or whatever name they end up with -- has concerts next month in Minnesota and California. Who knew??

John Legend will talk politics anytime you want, but do NOT talk to him about getting into politics!

The singer, and frequent political activist, flew back into L.A. on Thursday, and we asked if he's ready to do more than dabble in the political world. Fact is, John's been one of the most vocal opponents of everything President Trump has done ... so we wondered if that was motivating him to run for office.

His answer is direct and to the point. In other words ... totally not like a politician.

EXCLUSIVE

John Paragon, the actor who played Jambi the Genie on "Pee-wee's Playhouse," is being accused by a neighbor of repeatedly screaming at her to "shut her f***ing dog up!!!" and he tells TMZ ... guilty as charged.

Elizabeth MacPherson has filed for a restraining order, claiming John has a thing against her and her dog, once screaming at her for 4 hours ... "Shut that f***ing dog up asshole." She also claims he said, "I'm going to kill that f***ing dog."

We spoke with John, who says the 200 pound, white dog barks "incessantly" and numerous neighbors have complained, to no avail. He admits he's screamed at her to "shut the f***ing dog up," and she responded by flipping him off. He says he's never nor would he threaten her physically.

John says he's filed police reports and he and various neighbors have complained to animal control and a hearing is set for June.

Elizabeth says she has video of John screaming while the dog "sits complacently in the backyard."

She also says the alleged harassment has been going on for years ... back in 2014, she says she was playing bean bags with some friends and John began screaming, "Stop throwing those f***ing bags. F*** you."

Barack Obama Finally Disses Trump ... Tweet Storms Ain't the Answer!

4/27/2017 3:17 PM PDT
Breaking News

Barack Obama took his first shot at his predecessor since inauguration day, lightly jabbing President Trump's speedy Twitter fingers ... and reportedly made a ton of money while doing it.

The diss came Thursday in NYC while the ex-prez was speaking to a crowd of A&E Network's advertisers. While presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin interviewed Obama, she asked how he handled frustrating moments in the White House.

Barack coolly replied, "For starters, by not having a Twitter account."

It was an expensive joke for A&E ... which according to the NY Post, paid Obama $400k for the speaking engagement. He's reportedly making that same amount to speak at an upcoming Health conference put on by Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald.

Michelle's no slouch herself ... she spoke Thursday at the AIA Conference on Architecture in Florida. Not to mention the huge advances both she and Barack got for their memoirs.

Make money money, make money money ...

'Bachelor' Chris Soules Lawyers Mum on Police Standoff

4/27/2017 2:06 PM PDT

Lawyers for Chris Soules have just laid out some of their case, saying their client "acted reasonably and did everything in his power to provide aid to Mr. Mosher," the tractor driver who died, but they didn't say why Chris left before cops arrived and refused to come out of his house.

Attorneys Alfredo Parrish, Brandon Brown and Gina Messamer issued the statement, which covers a lot of what we reported Thursday. The say Soules did not flee the scene ... rather, he was the one who called 911 and identified himself as one of the individuals in the accident. They go on to say Soules attempted to resuscitate the victim and stayed until EMTs arrived.

They do not address Chris leaving before police arrived. We're told cops wanted to perform a field sobriety test and went to his home, but law enforcement tells us he refused to come out so they had to get a search warrant, which took hours. We're told cops found open containers of alcohol in his vehicle.

Soules has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death -- a felony.

Kenya Moore Restraining Order Tossed Matt Jordan's Ducking Me

4/27/2017 1:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kenya Moore's ex-BF, Matt Jordan, no longer has to stay away from her because a judge tossed the restraining order when she couldn't find him to serve legal docs.

Kenya's temporary restraining order was dismissed Wednesday after she was a no-show at a hearing on the matter. Kenya's lawyer tells TMZ ... she only skipped court because she knew the judge would toss it once he heard Matt hadn't been served.

You'll recall ... Kenya said Matt was blowing up her phone 30 times a day and had also threatened her. The temporary restraining order required him to stay 200 yards away from Kenya. 

Her attorney says Kenya will refile for another protective order ... but she's gonna have to locate Matt eventually.
