The Game Father Dies at 65

1/17/2018 1:12 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Game's father, George Taylor, died unexpectedly in his sleep Wednesday morning ... TMZ has learned. 

We're told a family member found him unresponsive in his home in Apple Valley, CA ... and alerted a neighbor who called 911. The Fire Dept. arrived at 8:30 AM this morning. He was unresponsive, and transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. 

We're told, at this point, It doesn't appear there's any foul play. The coroner's office has George's body now, and is investigating. 

Game rapped about his dad in the song, "Bloody Moon," off one of his albums. The lyrics on the track go, "My father left me when I was seven, at a home / Left me but took his chrome, I looked up and blood was gone / Man, fuck it, guess in the world I'm all alone."

They've had an off/on relationship since Game's been an adult. It's unclear what the status of their relationship was recently.

George was 65.

Dani Mathers Picked Up Her Slack ... Avoids Jail Time

1/17/2018 12:31 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers took a judge's warning seriously and kicked her required graffiti removal into high gear, so she won't have to spend time in a jail cell ... TMZ has learned.

Mathers' legal team was in court Wednesday and provided proof that Dani completed the 240 hours of community service she was ordered to do as part of her body shaming conviction.

We broke the story -- Dani appeared in front of a judge in November having only done 56 of the 240 required hours and was told she better step it up ... or else.

Looks like she heeded the warning.

Mathers is still on probation until May 2020.

Kanye West Takes Baby Name Suggestions ... Donda? That's 'Fire'

1/17/2018 12:07 PM PST

Kanye West just entertained a name suggestion for his new daughter ... and it hits very close to home.

Ye was at his office in Calabasas Wednesday, still beaming with excitement from his and Kim Kardashian's new addition. Yeezy joked he and Kim still hadn't decided on a name for baby #3 ... but when a photog shouted "Donda," Kanye seemed to dig the suggestion, saying, "that's fire."

TMZ broke the story -- Kim and Kanye were both in the room when their 7lbs 6oz baby girl arrived Monday -- but everyone's still waiting on the name.

Brian Urlacher's Baby Mama Sues for $125 Mil You Painted Me as a Murderer!

1/17/2018 11:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The mother of Brian Urlacher's 12-year-old son claims the ex-NFL star has conspired with attorneys and a news reporter to paint her as a murderer ... and now she's suing for $125 MILLION. 

The woman behind the suit is Tyna Karageorge -- who had a child with Urlacher in 2005. She later married Ryan Karageorge, who died from a gunshot wound to the head in Dec. 2016. 

Tyna had told police she and Ryan had been arguing on the night of the fatal shooting -- and at one point, he reached for a pistol in her purse and shot himself. 

In her suit, Tyna claims Urlacher -- along with his lawyers and a reporter for the Chicago Tribune -- concocted a diabolical plot to convince officials and the public that the shooting was NOT a suicide, but rather Tyna murdered Ryan. 

Tyna claims Urlacher called the shots in the plot hoping to ultimately get custody of their son. 

According to court documents filed in Illinois, Tyna wants $25 mil in compensatory damages and another $100 mil in punitive damages. 

We've made multiple attempts to reach Urlacher for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Bruce Willis Want My Central Park Crib? Cough Up $17.75m!!!

1/17/2018 12:16 PM PST

Bruce Willis is scaling back ... and no better way to do that than to unload a crib that practically features Central Park as the front yard.

Bruce has just listed his NYC duplex for a cool $17.75 million. He bought it for $16.995 million back in 2015 but Bruce and his wife, Emma Heming, are reportedly not spending as much time in the crib to justify keeping it ... so time to unload.

The lucky buyer gets an apartment that's around 6,000 square feet and once used to be 2 separate apartments. The 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom pad features 150 feet of Central Park frontage and a master suite with a luxurious bathroom with Central Park views.

Fit for a star ... check that, an action star.

1/17/2018 11:18 AM PST
Breaking News

Kevin Spacey's under a new Scotland Yard investigation -- a third man filed a complaint alleging the actor sexually assaulted him.

Scotland Yard says the alleged victim went to police on December 13 claiming Spacey sexually assaulted him in 2005 in Westminster. We're told Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are now investigating.

Cops in London are already investigating 2 similar complaints lodged against Spacey, who was artistic director at The Old Vic theater from 2004 to 2015. The theatre has received over 20 complaints against Spacey, and strongly urged people who came forward to contact police.

Spacey hasn't been criminally charged in any of the investigations launched since Anthony Rapp claimed Spacey sexually assaulted him.

The Killers Somebody Told Me ... There's a Fight in the First Row

1/17/2018 11:12 AM PST

Killers frontman Brandon Flowers stopped the band's concert Tuesday night after a fight broke out in the front row, but what's even more amazing is how the band jumped right back into the song.

Flowers and co. were about 3 songs in at the United Center in Chicago when he put the brakes on the set because 2 guys were going at it in the front row. The band was performing "Somebody Told Me" when Flowers told them to stop ... so kinda perfect timing, if you think about it. 

We'll say this, fighting at a concert's never cool -- but The Killers made the most of it. You gotta see their restart into the 2nd verse. FIIIIRE!!!!

Darren Criss I'm Playing Versace's Killer as a Person ... Not a Murderer

1/17/2018 10:08 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Darren Criss gave us a peek into the serial killer he's playing in tonight's premiere of 'Gianni Versace: American Crime Story' ... and it sounds like he gave his murderous character some humanity.

Darren was leaving the AOL building in New York City Tuesday, when our photog asked about his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan, who murdered 5 people including Versace before committing suicide.

The actor gave us a hint as to how he's playing him, which probably will not sit well with the members of the Versace family, who have vowed to boycott the series. The family has called the show a "work of fiction."

Fact is ... there's a huge buzz over Ryan Murphy's latest series, which premieres Wednesday on FX.

Kylie Jenner Photo of 'CVS Kylie' Ain't Kylie

1/17/2018 8:12 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner definitely looked pregnant as she roamed the aisles at CVS ... is what we would say if it was really Kylie Jenner -- but it's not.

Our Jenner-connected sources concede there's a vague similarity, but the woman in the baggy green hoodie, sunglasses, Kylie-style hair and plump lips simply isn't her.

There have been a slew of stories in the last day ballyhooing the first photo of pregnant Kylie in the famous Rx store, but she remains in hiding.

We're told Kylie almost never leaves her house as she grows during her pregnancy. She's due in March and no one has gotten a shot of her since she began showing.

We haven't seen a full body shot of Kylie in months.

Kim and Kanye We're Not Selling Baby Pics ... It's Just Immoral

1/17/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been offered multi-million dollar deals to provide first photos of their new baby ... and they have REJECTED all of them.

Sources familiar with the offers tell TMZ, various websites and magazines started making offers months ago. All of the offers were north of a million dollars and several outlets offered between $2 and $5 million.

The offers were never entertained ... they were immediately rejected. We're told Kim and Kanye would never consider taking money for the first photos of the baby ... doing so would violate their morals.

But there's more ... Kim and Kanye place the security and safety of their family above all else. They realize the media will eventually get pictures of the baby but they want to do it on their own timetable ... when they're comfortable the safety of the baby is secured. 

As for what they've done in the past ... Kim and Kanye posted the first pic of North 2 months after she was born. As for Saint, they also waited a little more than 2 months.

So check Kim's Instagram in March.
