Inaugural Bishop I'm Getting Hate... But I'm Doing it for Jesus

1/16/2017 4:51 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The pastor taking part in Donald Trump's swearing-in ceremony isn't fazed by the haters, because when it comes down to it, it's an order from the Man above.

Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Great Faith Ministries International in Detroit tells TMZ ... helping with readings and giving the benediction at Friday's ceremony isn't about Democrats or Republicans.

The Bishop's pretty clear -- he's answering a calling bigger than he can imagine.

It's not the first time the Bishop's heard rumblings -- he got the same treatment when he hosted Trump at the church back in September.

Justin Bieber Troll Arrested Allegedly Extorts Young Fans Into Sending Nude Photos

1/16/2017 3:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116-bryan-asrary-mug-wm-2

A man is in custody for allegedly trolling the Internet for Justin Bieber fans, targeting young girls and strong-arming them into sending him nude photos ... or else.

Bryan Asrary allegedly found a 9-year-old girl back in 2014 who was viewing Bieber's Instagram page. Asrary direct messaged the girl and said he knew Bieber and said he could arrange a text meeting.

Asrary then pretended to be Bieber, and demanded the girl send nude photos of herself and threatened to hurt her if she refused. The girl sent nude selfies and video.

Last year Asrary allegedly contacted the girl again ... this time threatening to publish and broadcast the photos she had sent him unless she sent more. She told her mom, and the cops got involved.

According to cops, they confronted Asrary and he confessed to extorting the girl and other victims around the country into sending him nude photos.

He's facing extortion, child porn and other charges.

'Dreamgirls' Jennifer Holliday Canceled Trump Inauguration Because of Death Threats

1/16/2017 2:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116_jennifer-holliday_tmz-2Jennifer Holliday pulled the plug on her inauguration performance because people threatened to kill her and her family ... TMZ has learned.

The "Dreamgirls" star agreed to sing at an inaugural event but did an about-face Saturday, saying she bailed because she was taking heat from the LGBT community.

But we've learned when her agent contacted the Inauguration Committee, he said the reason was death threats. We're told the LGBT concerns were not even mentioned.

A rep for Holliday told TMZ Monday ... both the death threats and the LGBT reaction were factors in her decision.

The rep tells us, "It was all of those things. She wasn’t scared to perform. She didn’t want to put her family at risk based on the death threats and she also didn’t want to offend the LGBT community which was especially upset that a past ally would perform on a program with President-Elect Donald Trump."

You may recall ... Trump's people said she was a lock late last week, but then her management team came out and said Trump's people jumped the gun ... that she was merely considering the offer. That doesn't square with the fact that Holliday herself said Friday she was fully on board.

We don't know if the people who made the threats identified themselves or any group with which they were affiliated.

A rep for the singer tells us her primary concern was the safety of her family.

Obamas On the Move

1/16/2017 1:07 PM PST

0116-obamas-moving-van-outside-house-TWITTER-02The president and his family are just like us ... schlepping boxes when you move from one house to another.

The Obamas are packin' up and moving boxes from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. to their new rental digs near Georgetown.

They've got some art (no, not like the portrait of George Washington) and other stuff.

They're headed to Palm Springs Friday, so by the time they get back 2 weeks after the inauguration, everything should be in place.

Kristin Cavallari Teeny Bikini Booze Cruise ... With Jay Cutler

1/16/2017 1:08 PM PST

0116_kristin_cavallari_jay_cutler_vacay_launch2It was booze, butts and boats for Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler on their Mexican vacation ... with the two stars partying their asses off on a yacht with a gang of friends.

The Cutlers were in Mexico to celebrate Kristin's 30th birthday ... but the highlight was a booze cruise on a boat called the "Blue Guru" with celeb hairstylist Scotty Cunha.

Guessing Cutler paid for the excursion since he reportedly made $16 mil this year.

Not bad for a guy who didn't make the playoffs.

Julian Edelman's quasi-girlfriend, Adriana Lima, attended her first Patriots playoffs game this weekend ... and fit right in with the ridiculously good lookin' group of W.A.G.s. 

First, the Edelman-Lima situation (or EdeLima) ... our sources tell us they're still dating but it's more casual than serious. 

As one source put, "When they can see each other, they do. But it's not very often."

Still, they're tight enough that she went to the Pats vs. Texans game at Foxborough this weekend ... joining other wives and girlfriends like Kristen Rorie (Tyler Gaffney's GF), Ciera Liguori (D.J. Foster's GF), Camille Kostek (Gronk's GF) and Siggi Bennett (Martellus Bennett's wife). 

And that doesn't even include Tom Brady's wife ... Gisele. 

It's good to be a Patriot.

Justin Bieber Selena's Using The Weeknd

1/16/2017 10:46 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116-justin-bieber-selena-gomez-TMZ-02Justin Bieber can spot an opportunist from a mile away ... at least now he can, and the opportunist is Selena Gomez.

Our Bieber sources tell us ... the singer says he's been there, and believes Selena's using The Weeknd for promotion. Bieber's intel -- and ours -- is that Selena and The Weeknd are working on music together.

We're told Justin feels this is all cookie-cutter stuff ... she did it with him, Nick JonasZedd and now with good ol' Abel. When Selena wants to push new music, it seems she dates stars with whom she wants to collab.

Long story short ... we're told Justin's rolling his eyes at the Selena/Weeknd love story. Can you tell

President Obama First Thing I'm Doing ... Hitting Up Palm Springs!!!

1/16/2017 11:17 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0113_barack_michelle_obama_palm_springs_composite-2bPresident Obama and Michelle Obama will be leaving frigid Washington D.C. for sunny Palm Springs ... TMZ has learned.

We're told when the First Family leaves the Capitol after the inauguration, they'll take a chopper (it will not be Marine One because he won't be the active president when he boards) to Andrews Air Force Base.

Our sources say at 2:45 PM they will leave Andrews on Special Air Mission 29,000, the plane that will take them to Palm Springs. It's the same plane that Obama used as president, but it won't be called Air Force One.

As for their return to D.C. where they'll be living, they won't have a government plane at their disposal. It's only one way.

FUN FACT: President Obama's first meal on Air Force One was a cheeseburger. Michelle likes the garden salad with chicken breast.

Future No Beef with Russell Wilson ... Just Tight With Falcons!

1/16/2017 11:02 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116_future_at_falcons_game_USA-Today-SportsFuture claims he didn't go to the Falcons-Seahawks game this weekend to spite Russell Wilson ... he's just a huge Falcons fan ... plain and simple.

Obviously, with the history between Future and Russ (and Ciara) -- it was verrrry interesting to see the rapper on the sidelines opposite the Seahawks QB at the NFL playoff game in ATL on Saturday. 

But a source close to Future says the rapper is adamant his appearance was not meant to be a shot at his ex's husband.

We're told he's tight with a bunch of Falcons players -- especially stud receiver Julio Jones -- so that's why he was invited to the game ... and he'll probably go this coming Sunday too.

Our sources say Future and Ciara are cordially co-parenting their kid these days ... and Future isn't trying to rock the boat.

... especially in the wake of Ciara dropping her defamation suit against him.

NBC Fires Back at Trump Supporter You Were Asking for a Beatdown

EXCLUSIVE

1102-trump-supporter-bill-clinton-rape-shirt-10

When you go to the "Today" show with a shirt suggesting Bill Clinton did what Donald Trump said he did ... you gotta be ready for someone to kick your ass ... so says NBC.

Mark Gallagher went to 30 Rock before the election and wore a t-shirt with Clinton's face and the word "rape."

He claims he was standing there minding his own business when NBC security -- whom he called a "goon squad" -- descended on him and beat the crap out of him. He has sued NBC for $53 mil.

NBC has now fired off its answer, saying when someone does something as incendiary as Gallagher did, they assume the risk someone will come after them. NBC does not get specific, but the network disputes Gallagher's version of the facts ... presumably what he did before the incident.

And this is the best. NBC says Gallagher had a duty to minimize his damages by getting quick medical help, which he did not do. The legal docs say he could have availed himself of the benefits of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act -- aka Obamacare.

Breaking News

Floyd Mayweather is spitting more venom at Dana White -- calling him a "small boss" who used to carry his bags back in the day.

Mayweather went off on the UFC honcho at the Barclays Center this weekend -- once again trashing Dana's $25 MILLION offer to fight Conor McGregor ... this time, he took a stroll down memory lane. 

"Dana White ... he was a player. He was a boss ... but he was a small boss."

"I can remember Dana White used to hang around me and Jeff Mayweather and carry my bags."

Mayweather says he used to be cool with White until ... "all the sudden he cut his head bald and he's such a tough guy. He's such a tough guy."

Just a few days ago, Dana told TMZ Sports why Floyd would be a fool to shoot down the offer.
