Beto O'Rourke Don't Throw Shade on Beyonce ... She's Houston's Best

11/18/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Beto O'Rourke doesn't buy the criticism of Beyonce -- that she waited too long to throw her support behind him in the Texas Senatorial election -- to the contrary, he says it's hard to find anything from Houston more impressive than her.

We got Beto on Capitol Hill, and he can't say enough about Bey ... can't say enough because he's interrupted by a slew of fans who went nuts when they saw him.

As for Beyonce, some of Beto's supporters think it was too little, too late throwing her support behind him on the day of the election

Gotta say ... he's about as genuine as they come -- unspotted by the ever-present phoniness of politics.

The video's fun to watch. 

Travis Scott Blasting Off Into Jewelry Biz ... With 'Astroworld' Bling

11/18/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Scott is shooting for the stars in search of new revenue streams ... because we've learned he's trying to lock up the rights to more space-themed merch. 

The rapper recently filed paperwork to clear the path for him to slap "Astroworld" all over a wide variety of jewelry and accessories. It's an obvious move to cash in on the title of his hit album and recently-announced music festival.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Travis has astronomic plans to produce "Astroworld" branded jewelry, clocks, watches, key chains, jewelry cases and even dog chains. C'mon ... your Astro would love that, right?  

It's the next giant leap after we reported his plans to trademark "S.P.A.C.E," "S.P.A.C.E 1991" and "S.P.A.C.E 2001" for use on clothing, cosmetics, fragrances and an online retail store. 

Seems Travis still has his heart set on cashing in on the final frontier. 

NYC's Mandarin Duck Fans Flocking To See Me In The Snow Park Rangers Have My Back

11/18/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

New York City authorities are stepping in to make sure Central Park's famous Mandarin duck survives the winter ... TMZ has learned. 

Meghan Lalor, Chief of Staff for NYC Parks, tells TMZ… the Urban Park Rangers are monitoring the colorful bird after the Big Apple was hit with its first snowstorm. 

People were worried the non-native species would hate the freezing temps, but Park Rangers assure us they're doing everything they can to keep tabs on his health ... and he actually seemed pretty delighted by snowfall. 

It's funny ... the duck sometimes leads Rangers on a wild goose chase, because it's difficult to track his every move and he often disappears for days at a time ... but the Rangers eventually find him. 

We're told the duck is likely a pet that was let loose in Central Park, and Rangers are prepared to make a rescue attempt if the bird ever appears injured, in need of care, or demonstrates a change in behavior. 

It's good to have friends in high places, even if you're a duck.

EXCLUSIVE

Logan Paul says he has unfinished business with KSI ... telling TMZ Sports he's still gunning for a rematch with the fellow YouTuber -- and he wants a KNOCKOUT.

We spoke with the social media superstar out in Beverly Hills over the weekend about his plans following the massively successful first fight earlier this year ... and he's fully expecting the rematch to happen.

That is ... "if KSI doesn't bitch out," Logan says.

Paul says he's already training for the rematch ... and wants it to go down in either L.A. at Staples Center or in NYC at Madison Square Garden.

Neither Logan or KSI could come away with the win in August ... but Paul guarantees that won't happen again.

"Next fight, absolutely gonna knock him out. He's not gonna make it past 2 rounds."

BONUS ... Logan also weighs in on one particular meme surrounding the month of November. Watch the clip ... you'll know what we're talking about.

We got Cory Wharton -- he's Cheyenne Floyd's baby daddy -- at LAX Friday and had to ask him about the potential celebrity boxing match between the 'Teen Mom' stars. TMZ broke the story ...

Marlon Wayans Trump's 'The Devil' Blames Prez For Deadly Wildfires

11/17/2018 1:03 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Wayans tells us Donald Trump should feel right at home at the scene of the destructive California wildfires ... because the comedian thinks the President is "the devil."

We got Marlon on Saturday at LAX ... and he tells our photog it's ironic Trump is visiting areas devastated by the Camp Fire because he feels POTUS is ultimately responsible for the deadliest fire in California history. 

Check out the clip ... Marlon paints a picture of how he imagines Trump, and it's really dark. 

Trump arrived in Northern California on Saturday and he's surveying fire recovery efforts and inspecting the damage.

When the wildfires started scorching California last week, Trump blamed the flames on poor forest management and threatened to cut federal funding.  

After seeing the damage first-hand Saturday, Trump told reporters it's "very sad to see."

Laura Avila In Hospice Care ... Family Putting Her Life 'In God's Hands'

11/17/2018 2:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Laura Avila, the Dallas realtor who ended up in a coma after a botched nose job procedure in Mexico, has been moved to hospice care ... TMZ has learned. 

Laura's attorney, Larry Friedman, tells TMZ ... Laura's family made the difficult decision Saturday to move her into hospice, and the family believes her life is now in God's hands. 

We're told the family decided hospice was Laura's best option after deep deliberations with her medical team. 

As we reported ... Laura slipped into a coma after surgeons in Ciudad Juarez botched her nose job by incorrectly administering anesthesia.

Laura was trying to save cash by getting the procedure done south of the border, and she was stuck in Mexico for 8 days before her family was able to transfer her back to Texas ... but not before she fell into a coma.

Lil Pump New Video Shows Moment Gas Attack Hits Rapper

11/17/2018 10:48 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

We've just obtained shocking new video of Lil Pump moments after tear gas was dispersed at his concert ... and it's clear the rapper felt the full brunt of the attack. 

You see a shirtless Pump rapping and hyping up the crowd as he stands on the edge of the stage, and that's when then the concert comes to a screeching halt as Lil Pump apparently starts smelling the gas. 

Lil Pump has a puzzled look on his face as he slowly realizes something's not right, he lowers the mic and starts retreating off stage. 

Backstage, Pump is nearly unconscious as he's getting treated by medics. Fortunately, he's able to recover and he climbs on top of his tour bus and finishes the show.

The crazy scene went down Friday night at Rock City in Nottingham, United Kingdom after someone tossed tear gas into the crowd.

The crowd may have gotten the worst of it because fans were sent scrambling as gas fills the auditorium. The building was evacuated and cops tell us at least two people were treated for minor injuries.

It's still unclear who launched the attack, but law enforcement sources tell us the incident was not terrorism.

Michael B. Jordan I Wanna Box Roy Jones Jr. 'Creed' Got Me Ready To Fight!!!

11/17/2018 11:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michael B. Jordan is itching to step into the ring with former heavyweight champ Roy Jones Jr. ... because his insane training regimen for  "Creed II" has Michael feeling unstoppable. 

We got MBJ out Friday night in Los Angeles ... and he tells our photog he's been working out hard for the upcoming movie, so he's ready to throw down with one of his favorite boxers. 

But, there's a catch ... Michael feels he can handle 49-year-old Roy, and the actor explains why fighting RJJ in his prime would be a completely different story. 

 

David Arquette Loses in Brutal, Bloody Wrestling Deathmatch

11/17/2018 6:51 AM PST

David Arquette was bloody, mangled and nearly tortured Friday night in a wrestling match ... and there was NOTHING FAKE about it.

David was in a 'deathmatch' -- that's the name and not really an understatement -- at a Game Changer Wrestling event that went down at The Hi Hat.

The actor-turned-wrestler was up against Nick FN Gage and it was just brutal. Gage broke a light tube over Arquette's head. You see David grab his neck as blood pours from the area. Shockingly, the fight continues.

Toward the end, it looks like David gives up, climbing out of the ring, but then the 47-year-old hops back in as he bleeds profusely. Gage stomps on him, but David fires back by smacking Gage with a chair. It didn't take long ... David gets pinned.

After the match, David told his fans he needed a few stitches and he was fine.

He ended by saying death matches weren't his thing ... and that's a good thing.

Bill Maher Trashes Stan Lee He Made Adults Stupid and Is Responsible for Trump

11/17/2018 7:26 AM PST

Bill Maher thinks Stan Lee is partly to blame for the dumbing down of America.

Bill wrote an essay on his blog, saying he has nothing against comic books, but they're for kids ... and when you grow up you should "move on to big-boy books without the pictures."

He mused that around 20 years ago, adults had a revelation ... "They didn't have to give up kid stuff. And so they pretended comic books were actually sophisticated literature."

He pulls back slightly and says, "I'm not saying we've necessarily gotten stupider." But, then he bores in ... "The problem is, we're using our smarts on stupid stuff."

And, then he goes in for the kill ... "I don't think it's a huge stretch to suggest that Donald Trump could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important."

Mike Judge, the creator of "Beavis and Butt-Head" and co-creator of "King of the Hill" and "Silicon Valley," had a very different view of Stan. 

Stan Lee died Monday at age 95
