'The Preachers' Host John Gray Flight Attendants Profiled My Wife Before Her Meltdown

7/29/2016 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Joel Osteen's associate pastor, John Gray, absolutely thinks the 2 flight attendants who went toe-to-toe with his wife would've handled things differently if she were white.

Rev. Gray -- a host on "The Preachers" -- and Aventer were on "TMZ Live" Friday trying to explain why she was singled out by the American Airlines crew when she attempted to switch seats with her nanny.

Check out the clip ... John stops just short of calling it straight up racism, but he clearly thinks Aventer was treated differently because of what she was wearing, and POSSIBLY because she's black.

We broke the story ... cops were called and Aventer was briefly removed from the flight. She was ultimately allowed back on, and the 2 flight attendants got booted.

0729_irina_shayk_bradley_cooper_tennisWe're not really sure why Irina Shayk even bothered with this bikini.

The supermodel was on vacay with Bradley Cooper -- they moved on to the Italian isle of Sardinia.

Looks like Irina was solo on the beach as her butt was devouring a micro bikini. Bradley? For some reason he was playing tennis.

Julia Roberts said it best ... big mistake, Bradley. Huge.

Lil Wayne Yo Birdman ... Check Out Diss Hat

7/29/2016 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0729-lil-wayne-cash-money-hat-fame-3Lil Wayne's wardrobe is now doing his trash-talking for him.

Weezy's favorite Birdman slam is emblazoned on a white hat he's rocking in L.A.

It's a strong hint that Mr. Carter and the Cash Money honcho have made ZERO progress on settlement talks in Wayne's $51 mil lawsuit.

He's making another statement too -- if his double-cup's filled with lean, as it usually is ... it's not a good look considering his recent seizures and all.

'Pokemon' Theme Singer Down for a 'Pokemon Go' Remix But Only If ...

7/29/2016 10:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The guy who's had kids and many adults singing along to "Pokemon" for years says there absolutely should be a new tune for "Pokemon Go" ... as long as he doesn't get screwed in the deal.

Jason Paige was outside the Rockwell in L.A. Thursday night when he freestyled a possible remixed song for the current craze. He says he's tried "Pokemon Go," and it sounds like he's hooked.

He says there's only one potential downside to the game's popularity, and it's closely tied to his wallet.

BTW ... Jason busted out the old theme song inside Rockwell. It's just like you remember it, but a little more adult contemporary.

Montel Williams Detained for Pot In Germany

7/29/2016 7:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0729-Montel-Williams-tmzMontel Williams just got a lesson in German law -- you can't fly with weed, unless you've got a serious medical condition ... which is how he avoided getting arrested.

Montel's rep tells us he was traveling through the Frankfurt airport with his wife early Friday, and got stopped by customs agents. They discovered marijuana in his carry-on which Montel uses to help treat his MS and detained him for questioning.

We're told Montel informed cops the pot was only medication and called his team back in the U.S. to send over proof of his prescription.

Williams' rep says once Montel presented the proof, the German authorities were cool with everything and let him go. He was held for less than an hour. 

Montel's rep, Jon Franks, tells us, "Unfortunately this is the reality faced by medical marijuana patients every day all over the world. Today, Montel reaffirms his commitment to fighting for sensible medical marijuana policies across the world and to fighting the stigma he and so many other seriously ill Americans face every day for simply following the advice of their doctor."

Prost!

Justin Bieber Sorry, GOP ... I'm Not for Sale

7/29/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728-justin-bieber-gop-convention-tmz-getty-01Justin Bieber got a $5 million offer to perform at a Republican event during the GOP Convention, but turned it down after his manager considered quitting and LeBron James urged him to reject it ... sources tell TMZ.

Sources connected with CAA -- the talent agency which reps Bieber and received the offer -- tell us a promoter contacted Justin's people with the offer, saying he would perform for 45 minutes at a venue near Quicken Loans Arena, where the RNC was held.

We're told the promoter assured Justin's people the event was "not political" and Justin would not be endorsing Trump or any GOP policies. 

According to the contract, the $5 million was bankrolled by GOP donors. The money was to be paid "up front" -- before Justin even arrived. The donors would also cover production expenses.

It represented the biggest single payday ever for Justin. Or, for that matter, just about any other singer, and he seriously considered doing it ... partly because he's Canadian and didn't have a dog in the fight and partly because of the money.

Manager Scooter Braun, a big Hillary Clinton supporter who even held a fundraiser for her at his L.A. home, had big problems with the offer ... as did CAA. Scooter and CAA felt, regardless of the representations, this was "100 percent political."

0728-scooter_braun_hillary_clinton_fundraiser_InstagramWe're told Scooter wasn't heavy-handed at first, and talked to Justin about putting Black Lives Matter banners up in the venue. We're told Braun was told he could not display BLM banners, but the donors would accept banners that read "All Lives Matter." The donors also made it clear ... Justin could say nothing disparaging about Trump or the GOP.
