George Lopez on Hooters Incident I'm Trump's Kind of Guy Now!!!

10/21/2018 4:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

George Lopez and Donald Trump may finally see eye-to-eye on something after a scuffle GL was involved in last weekend at a Hooters ... according to George himself.

We got the comedian Sunday at LAX, where we asked about his run-in with an overzealous fan who claims George grabbed his neck in a video of the altercation obtained by TMZ. In our clip ... you can see what appears to be George getting handsy with the dude.

George stays tight-lipped on the whole thing -- not wanting to reveal who he thinks was at fault -- but, he does drop one interesting nugget on us ... Trump probably would've been down for the way George handled it -- ya know, 'cause of that whole body slamming thing.

In case you forgot ... Trump praised Congressman Greg Gianforte for putting a reporter on his back last year, saying anyone who could do a full body slam was "my kind of guy."

George certainly remembers the comment, and he seems to imply that his own run-in might've been more than just a neck grab. Oh ... he's also got some (hilarious) thoughts on the Dodgers returning to the World Series to face the Boston Red Sox. 

Ariana Grande Nothin' Heals a Breakup Like Retail Therapy

10/21/2018 3:33 PM PDT

Ariana Grande is doing what anyone might after a tough breakup -- TREAT YO SELF ... although, she's doing it bigger and better than most of us could really afford to.

AG was spotted on a shopping spree Sunday in SoHo, NYC with a couple of massive Chanel bags in each arm and a big puffy coat to keep her comfy as she rocked the hell out of those matching boots. She was glaring at the camera -- but her face seems to be forecasting one message ... "That's right, bitch. I'm doing me!" That's our take, anyway.

This is a much different vibe than we were getting from her now-ex, Pete Davidson, just a few days ago. He was looking mopey as hell post-split. And she, well, looks fabulous. 

Speaking of Pete ... he's said to have broken his silence on the split over the weekend during a comedy show in L.A., where he reportedly joked about needing a new roommate, covering up his Ariana-inspired tattoos and people hoping he doesn't "kill himself."

Probably too soon to be joking about that in the wake of Mac Miller's death, no? Don't answer that ... it's a definite yes. 

Ex-RNC Chair on Khashoggi Yeah, Sure, a 'Fist Fight' Broke Out ... Calls BS on Saudi Arabia

10/21/2018 3:50 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The former head of the RNC doesn't believe a word of Saudi Arabia's explanation of how journalist Jamal Khashoggi died, and he doesn't buy Trump's denial of financial ties there.

We got Michael Steele Saturday at the L.A. Convention Center during Politicon 2018 and asked what he made of Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor insisting that Khashoggi had gotten into a fist fight inside the country's consulate in Turkey ... which led to his death.

It's clear he thinks the Saudi Arabian goverment's full of it -- as he describes just how unlikely it is for such a scenario to play out ... especially in light of how brutal his murder has been described by Turkish officials. He's said to have been dismembered.

As for Trump very publicly declaring he has "no financial interests in Saudi Arabia" ... Mike's got a theory on that too. Funny how one word can change the meaning of something so drastically ... which the President is no stranger to at this point. #WordsMatter

'Brother Nature' Old Tweets Resurface Rampant Racism & More Revealed

10/21/2018 12:41 PM PDT

Viral sensation and self-proclaimed deer whisperer, "Brother Nature," started trending this weekend for all the wrong reasons -- old and incredibly vile tweets ... which invoked names like Jay-Z and Chris Brown

20-year-old Kelvin Peña quickly turned his Twitter account to private Sunday, after people started re-posting screenshots of his old tweets from 2011 and 2012 ... many of which were racist, sexist and anti-Semitic. It's unclear what might've sparked the deep Twitter dive.

Nonetheless, what was revealed was quite disturbing. One such tweet said "Jay Z look like a monkey." Another one said ... "when I grow up I wanna be like Chris Brown. So if my girlfriend tried to look through my phone while driving I can choke and punch her :D".

There's a lot more that are even more disgusting -- tweets that say things like ... "HEIL HITLER" ... "Wanna hear a joke? Women's rights" and "TL stopped loading .. too many coons on my TL that's why f***." FWIW ... dude claims to be Dominican and Puerto Rican.

Peña first garnered attention (and views) back in 2016 with a viral video called "Money and the deer squad" which featured a deer he named Canela. He went on to put out more videos of himself interacting with Canela and other animals he encountered in "the wild" ... and eventually dubbed himself Brother Nature. 

As we've seen lately with these viral types ... nothing stays buried for long. We reached out to Brother Nature's camp for comment ... so far, no word back. 

Amber Rose New BF Throws Surprise Bday Party Makes Her Cry Tears of Joy

10/21/2018 1:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Amber Rose was brought to tears after her new BF -- Def Jam Records exec Alexander 'AE' Edwards -- threw her a surprise birthday party ... and scored MAJOR points doing it.

The SlutWalk founder came home Saturday night to a house full of friends and family -- including her son, Sebastian -- who were all there to greet her for her 35th birthday party. As you can tell ... Amber had no idea any of it was coming, and later thanked her man in a speech.

She drops the "L" word a few times here, so it must be getting pretty serious with 'AE.' Amber even says she had to date a bunch of losers to get to him ... and feel complete. 

Sounds like AR and 'AE' might be the real deal after a couple misfires here and there over the past year (sorry, 21). We're told 'AE' dropped a few racks and partnered with party planning company, "Wife of the Party" and some of Amber's pals to make the Ciroc-sponsored/Chef E Dubble-catered shindig come together.

So ... you know he's made Amber a top priority. Congrats to the happy couple!

Ben Stein Mitch McConnell Attack ... It's So Nazi

10/21/2018 10:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ben Stein says the guy who attacked Mitch McConnell Friday night is like a brownshirt in the early days of the Nazi Party.

We got Ben Saturday at Politicon in L.A., and he was disgusted by the video TMZ posted, showing a restaurant patron verbally assaulting McConnell and his wife at a Louisville, Kentucky restaurant. The person who shot the video told us before the attack, the patron grabbed McConnell's doggie bag and threw it out the door.

Ben is consistent ... saying the verbal assault against Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats are just as bad as what happened to the Majority Leader.

Ben says we've reached a point where mob rule seems to be in vogue, and he thinks it's a frontal threat to democracy.

Winnie Harlow & Wiz Khalifa That 'For Real' PDA ... Newly Confirmed Couple

10/21/2018 11:44 AM PDT

Winnie Harlow and Wiz Khalifa have been projecting their relationship on us for months now with signs and gestures -- but none are more clear than this one ... they're dating.

The Canadian supermodel was spotted holding hands with the Pittsburgh MC Saturday night as they were leaving the Staples Center in L.A., following the Lakers' loss against the Rockets ... and a nasty brawl that'd broken out between the two teams.

BTW ... Wiz's ex-wife, Amber Rose, gave her blessing to the new pair last month, saying she thought Winnie was a "f****** sweetheart," but noting she wasn't sure if Winnie had met Amber and Wiz's kid, Sebastian, yet.

Also worth noting ... their fashion-statement-making outfits. Winnie wore a full-body Fendi outfit, while Wiz was out there rockin' purple and yellow (not 'Black and Yellow').

Looks like LA-Bron fever's getting him to him too this season.

Chris Christie Attack on Mitch McConnell Will Drive Politicians Underground

10/21/2018 7:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, is outraged at this weekend's verbal assault against Senator Mitch McConnell, saying attacks like this will make politicians hostages in their own homes.

We got the former Gov on Saturday at Politicon in L.A., and he was clearly upset by what went down Friday night at a Louisville, Kentucky restaurant, where a patron apparently slammed his fists down on the table where McConnell and his wife were sitting, grabbed his doggie bag, and threw the food out the door ... then started to berate the Majority Leader.

Christie says, if politicians isolate themselves from the public out of fear they'll be assaulted, then we all lose.

Check out how Christie invokes the name of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ... this in response to whether McConnell should have struck back.

And you gotta hear how Christie defends Donald Trump for applauding the congressman who body slammed a reporter.  

Clemson University Shocking Video of Floor Collapsing During Dance Party ... Dozens Injured

10/21/2018 7:06 AM PDT

Dozens of college students were injured when a floor collapsed Saturday night during a dance party ... and it was caught on video.

It's shocking to watch, as students plummet from the first floor into the basement of an apartment.  Some of the students tried to jump to safety as the floor gave way ... mostly to no avail. 

It appears as many as 30 people were injured and taken to the hospital for various injuries.  Police say none of the injuries were life threatening. 

Check out the aftermath video ... you hear students screaming in shock, not processing what had happened.

The incident occurred in a clubhouse at the apartment complex, a couple of miles from Clemson Univ.

One student said he felt something "weird" just before the collapse and suddenly the guy behind him just disappeared.

The incident occurred hours after Clemson won a football game against North Carolina. 

Lakers/Rockets Brawl Massive Brawl Erupts ... Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo Face Suspensions

10/21/2018 6:54 AM PDT

It was fight night at the Staples Center when players from the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets got into an intense fist fight ... marring the hometown debut of LeBron James.

It all went down Saturday night late in the 4th quarter. Lakers Center, Brandon Ingram, shoved Rockets Guard, James Harden, for which Ingram received a technical foul. Moments later, Houston PG, Chris Paul and Lakers PG Rajon Rondo began trading punches.

It is unclear why Ingram shoved Harden in the first place ... he was visibly upset and took out his frustrations on the ref after being called for the shove. The shoving continued between Rondo and Paul before Rondo threw a punch, igniting the fight.

Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram are sure to be socked with suspensions.

LeBron says he tried his best to calm things down and he didn't speak to his team after the game.

'Cat Daddy' Rapper Please Don't Bust Me ... That Chick's Gonna Have Sex with Me!!!

10/21/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of the guys behind the "Cat Daddy" dance craze got busted in L.A. -- but, the ONLY thing on his mind at the time of his arrest was getting some action from a chick he'd just met ... at 2 AM.

TMZ obtained this video of Jovan "Pee Wee" Clayton -- formerly a member of The Rej3ctz -- getting arrested early Thursday morning by bounty hunters. They told him they were hauling him in for an outstanding domestic battery warrant, but you gotta see the vid.

Pee Wee couldn't care less about the charge, he was laser-focused on Lima, the woman he met on Instagram but had finally just met in person ... right before the bounty hunters took him down.

When they told him they found 3 boxes of condoms in her truck, he fired back ... "I know!!! I was about to f**k the s**t outta her!" His tone changed drastically when they told him she also had a particular sex toy. Just watch.

Bad news for Pee Wee -- law enforcement sources tell us his dream girl, Lima, was actually the confidential informant who dropped the dime on him.

LAPD booked him for felony domestic abuse, and his bail was set at $100k. 

On a positive note -- Pee Wee's cellmates can all bone up on their "Cat Daddy."

Paula Abdul Goes Straight Down ... During 'Straight Up' Concert

10/21/2018 7:32 AM PDT

Paula Abdul took a tumble Saturday night during her show ... but she was a true trooper.

Paula went down during her concert at Hard Rock Live in Biloxi, Mississippi. Watch the video, as she saunters from the back of the stage to the front ... then just disappears into the crowd. It appears people in the audience helped her back on stage. 

Eyewitnesses say Paula got up and continued on with the show. It's unclear if she hurt herself, but she didn't show it. Fact is ... Paula has had various injuries over the year but has never really been sidelined. As they say ... "The show must go on."

It was the third show on the road for her "Straight Up Paula! 2018 Tour." 

Prince Harry & Meghan Our Kid Could Be President ... But There's a Catch

10/21/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have an interesting decision to make -- it has nothing to do with baby names, but it will decide whether their firstborn can be President ... of the good ole U.S. of A.

We did some digging and discovered Harry and Meghan will need to fill out special paperwork to make their royal baby a naturalized U.S. citizen. They have to sign it, not the kid -- meaning, he or she will have no choice in whether they can be an American. 

The baby doesn't get an automatic U.S. citizenship because Meghan -- who will still be an American citizen when she gives birth -- and her child won't be living in the States. Hence, the special form is a must.

Our palace sources confirm Meghan intends to become a British citizen, but it's unclear if she will renounce her U.S. citizenship ... which makes the decision over her kid's citizenship so fascinating.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have until the child's 18th birthday to fill out the paperwork. If they get through the red tape -- and let's face it, the Royals can handle red tape -- the kid will be eligible to run for U.S. Prez.    

Remember, Harry and Meghan's first child -- Victoria, Albert or whoever -- will be 7th in line for the British throne, while still satisfying the requirements to become POTUS. Kinda cool.
