Kylie Jenner Cereal Liar?!!?

9/19/2018 2:31 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner SAYS she hadn't tasted one of life's greatest delights -- cereal with milk -- until this week, but she's cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs because we found out ... she's been on the milk for years! Or at least once.

Kylie sang the praises of moo juice Tuesday, posting on Twitter, "last night I had cereal with milk for the first time, life changing."

But, we have some Trix up our sleeve because we went back in time on Kylie's Instagram account and, lo and behold, on April 25, 2013, Kylie was lyin' past-her-eyes.

She posted a pic of a delicious bowl of what looks like bran flakes with MILK!!! Bran makes you regular ... a regular fibber. BTW, we're guessing the "he" in her caption is her dad, who famously appeared on Wheaties boxes after getting a gold medal in the 1976 Olympics. 

Now ... there are some who may say it's not milk in the bowl ... it's yogurt. But, yogurt leaves a residue on interior sides of the bowl, and this bowl looks clean on the sides. 

Call us lactose intolerant ... we'll wear that badge! And in case you wanna weigh in yourself ... let us know what you think is in that bowl. 

Machine Gun Kelly 911 Call 'They Just Jumped This Man'

9/19/2018 12:47 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Machine Gun Kelly's crew viciously jumped an actor so fast a hotel employee who called 911 barely had time to describe them to the dispatcher after they took off.

TMZ has obtained the 911 call made by a Hampton Inn employee who reported a group of men beating someone to a pulp. As we first reported ... it was MGK's crew that jumped the actor named Gabriel "G-Rod" Rodriguez late Friday night in the ATL after he confronted MGK and called him a "p***y."

You can hear the dispatcher ask the employee to describe the alleged suspects but the employee says he simply can't because there's a whole group. You can hear at the beginning of the video the ruckus taking place in front of the hotel lobby. It soon dissipates and the employee requests an ambulance and asks G-Rod for his age.

TMZ broke the story ... G-Rod walked up to MGK at a bar and trashed him for bringing in family in his Eminem diss track. That led to an altercation and ultimately a vicious beatdown. 

G-Rod told us there's zero need for lawyers to seek retribution ... he just wants a shot at MGK in the Octagon to settle the score. 

LeBron James Lands 'Black Panther' Director ... For 'Space Jam' Sequel

9/19/2018 12:49 PM PDT
Breaking News

Looney Tunes Land will have the power of Wakanda in the newest 'Space Jam' sequel starring LeBron James ... 'cause the director behind "Black Panther" is officially joining the project!!

The follow-up to the 1996 classic -- slated to begin production 2019 -- has added Ryan Coogler to the movie as a producer ... and Terence Nance will be the director.

LeBron's got a lot of irons in the Hollywood fire, but this has been by far the most anticipated project since it was announced in 2016.

If Coogler's name doesn't ring a bell, you've probably seen one of his movies. He's directed other movies like "Creed" and "Fruitvale Station" ... both starring Michael B. Jordan.

Which begs the question ... could another MJ team up with Bugs Bunny and Bron in the sequel?? 

Suge Knight Murder Trial in Fatal Hit & Run Case FINALLY Set to Begin

9/19/2018 12:05 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight's murder trial for fatally running over a man with his truck nearly 4 years ago is finally going to begin ... which has got to be good news for the famous defendant who has been waiting in jail for years.

Jury selection will begin Monday. The jurors will be tasked with determining if Knight was trying to run over Terry Carter back in January 2015 or if he was trying to flee.

Video of the incident shows Suge's red truck pulling into Tam's Burgers in Compton -- where Dr. Dre was filming footage connected with the NWA biopic, "Straight Outta Compton" -- and he's almost immediately confronted by Cle "Bone" Sloan ... who did security for the film.

Suge guns it in reverse and clips Sloan, knocking him to the ground, then floors it forward ... running over Sloan again and mowing down Carter, killing him.

Suge claims he was not trying to run either man over but instead was trying to escape out of fear he would be killed. Suge's legal team has claimed Bone and Terry both had guns.

Since this all went down ... there have been countless developments in the case. Firstly, Suge was arrested and has been in jail awaiting trial ever since. He's been to the hospital for blood clots. His former attorneys were arrested for attempting to bribe witnesses.

On top of that, he was indicted for making death threats against director F. Gary Gray and pled not guilty in that case ... and recently his mother died.

But, the focus starting next week will be whether or not Suge intentionally killed Carter. If history is any indication, though ... the trial won't be quick.

Floyd Mayweather Planning Comeback Fight In Tokyo ... Before Pacquiao Rematch

9/19/2018 11:37 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather isn't jumping right back into the ring with Manny Pacquiao ... instead, he's taking a tune-up fight in Tokyo, with the big money Pacman rematch to follow ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Mayweather called out Manny last weekend, telling Pacquiao and the world he wanted to run back the 2015 superfight in December.

It looks like Floyd is adjusting course a bit ... 'cause sources close to TBE tell us he's actually eyeing 2 comeback fights ... starting with a massive boxing event in Tokyo. 

Couple of interesting points here ... we're told Floyd hasn't yet picked an opponent -- and he ain't just lookin' at boxers -- he's also checking out kickboxers and MMA fighters.

We're told Conor McGregor's name has not been mentioned.

Floyd knows a fight with Pacquiao would likely be more lucrative than a lesser-known opponent, but there's a long play in place ... give fans in Tokyo a big-time fight, and open up the Asian markets for a bevy of business interests -- including clothing and endorsements. 

There's no date set in stone just yet ... but word is New Year's Eve is the target, if he can secure a swaggy enough venue.

If all goes according to Floyd's plan, the Pacquiao fight would then follow sometime in 2019.

52-0??

Plies Arrested at Tampa Intl. for Gun Found in Carry-On Bag

9/19/2018 12:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Plies was arrested after a gun was found in his carry-on bag as he was trying to board a plane in Tampa ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us the rapper was getting a bag scanned Wednesday morning at Tampa International Airport before getting onto a Delta flight when TSA agents discovered a Glock 43 in one of his bags, as well as a fully-loaded magazine lying beside it.

We're told Plies had no permit for the gun, and was arrested by airport police for carrying a concealed weapon -- a felony. We're told he's currently in custody at Tampa International ... and will be transferred to Hillsborough County Jail.

Sources close to Plies tell TMZ he mistakenly grabbed the wrong bag before heading to the airport, and admits the gun is his. We're also told he is a registered gun owner. 

Katt Williams Gun Incident Caught on Video ... 'Katt Hauled Ass in the Store!!!'

9/19/2018 11:23 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There's video to back up Katt Williams story about the husband of a radio DJ charging at him with a gun and we just got it. 

It all went down Saturday night outside the Atlanta Comedy Theater, where Wanda Smith of V-103's 'Frank and Wanda' was hosting. The video starts with Katt fuming in the parking lot while rocking a Deion Sanders jersey and gold chains -- he even confronts the guy recording him.

You'll recall ... Katt said he got into it with Wanda's husband, Lamorris Sellers, who was pissed Katt roasted the hell out of Wanda on the radio. There was a ton of jawing back and forth until Lamorris and a friend gave chase. Katt initially said Lamorris pointed a gun in his face -- and in this video you can see a gun in Lamorris' hand as Katt bolted into a grocery store.

The view of their face-to-face confrontation is blocked in the video, so it's hard to tell if Lamorris really did point the gun. He told cops he only dropped it while chasing Katt, but never pulled the weapon on him. 

Wanda addressed the incident on her show Monday, but wouldn't confirm or deny her husband pulling a gun, citing legal reasons. She did claim, however, that Katt started dissing her right away at the comedy club ... which is what started the drama in the first place.

Ashton Kutcher Manny Down ... After Scooter Crash

9/19/2018 10:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ashton Kutcher accidentally nailed a young man riding a scooter, sending him flying through the air.

19-year-old Leo Marenghi tells TMZ ... he was scooting along Tuesday afternoon on the sidewalk and as he passed the Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood, Kutcher pulled out of the lot in his black Tesla. Margenghi, who works as a nanny, says the impact propelled him into the air and he landed in the street.

We're told Kutcher was concerned, got out of his car and asked Leo if he was alright. He said he was fine, save a few bruises. Leo's not in showbiz, but he couldn't resist asking for a selfie as a memento, and Ashton obliged. 

Leo, ever the nanny, was on his way to pick up his kids from school, and that's why he was carrying 2 additional scooters.  

We reached out to Ashton's rep ... so far, no word back.

Julie Chen on 'Big Brother' I'm 'Moonves' Forever And the Audience Loves It

9/19/2018 11:32 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Julie Chen's sign-off last week on 'Big Brother' wasn't a one-time stunt -- 'cause she did it again for Wednesday night's episode, and got major love. 

Sources at Tuesday night's taping tell TMZ ... Julie opened the show by saying ... "Good evening, I'm Julie Chen Moonves. Welcome to 'Big Brother.'" Her words were met with a thunderous show of support from the audience. 

Julie signed off with the Moonves surname during last week's episode -- and now it seems she is taking her husband's name full-time, on the heels of his hasty exit from CBS amid sexual misconduct allegations.

TMZ broke the story ... Julie wants to stay on as the host of 'Big Brother,' and CBS won't ask her to go. Assuming they renew the hit show for another season, she's likely to stay put.

"The Talk" is a different story. Julie announced her exit from that show Tuesday. We're told she left on her own accord ... and wasn't asked to leave.

Samantha Ronson Eminem's An Ugly, Misogynistic Pig ... Go Away 'F***ing Old Man'

9/19/2018 9:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Samantha Ronson probably wishes Eminem turned his metaphorical gun on himself and not at Machine Gun Kelly ... 'cause she's tearing the rapper to pieces for "Killshot" and thinks the diss track is absolute trash!!!

We got the DJ at LAX, and she wasted no time ripping Eminem a new one, saying his song is misogynistic, homophobic, lazy and something a 4-year-old would write. There was more, and you gotta see just how nuclear she went on Em. 

The DJ says Marshall is a "f***ing old man" who has no business dragging Rihanna's name through the mud ... and the 2 rappers should take their feud and ugly hairstyles to the groomers. 

What's got Sam so heated? Em opens "Killshot" with the line, "Rihanna just hit me on a text. Last night I left hickeys on her neck."

The line seems oddly out of place. You could ask, what the hell does RiRi have to do with MGK? Sam sees at as straight-up misogyny. 

Watch how heated Sam is -- we're not trying to start any new beef, but it sure sounds like she could drop a diss track of her own if you get her in a studio, stat!

Demi Lovato's Mom Wasn't Sure She'd Survive But Demi's Happy and Healthy Now

9/19/2018 9:05 AM PDT

Demi Lovato's mother says she was terrified for days her daughter was going to die, and she believes it was only the prayers of Demi's fans that saved her life.

Dianna De La Garza talked about the OD for the first time Tuesday during an interview with Newsmax TV -- and described the moment she rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital and saw Demi. Dianna stood by her bedside and said, "Demi, I'm here. I love you" and Demi responded, "I love you too."

She says it was absolutely touch-and-go for several days -- "We just didn't know for 2 days if she was going to make it." Demi's mom thanked the doctors, but added, "The reason she's alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day."

The good news is ... Dianna says Demi is doing very well in rehab and feeling happy and healthy. 

TMZ broke the story ... Demi suffered an OD in July after taking "aftermarket" pills that were supplied by Brandon Johnson. Although he's dodging charges in Demi's case, there's a warrant out for his arrest on a different drug case.
