Roman Reigns Leukemia is Back Gives Up Belt to Focus on Treatment

10/22/2018 5:30 PM PDT
Breaking News

WWE's Roman Reigns says his leukemia has returned in a health battle that's he's been fighting for more than 10 years. 

Reigns made the solemn announcement on 'Monday Night Raw,' saying his leukemia was back, and that he wouldn't be able to carry out his duties as a wrestler ... and, as such, will have to relinquish the Universal Championship.

Reigns said he'd be heading home to focus on his health and treatment ... adding "I will beat this, I will be back, and you will see me very, very soon." The crowd was noticeably distraught and shocked over the news, but gave him a huge round of applause when he thanked them for their support over the years.

Reigns was diagnosed with leukemia at age 22. He's 33 now.

The Weeknd Look Out Below Narrowly Avoids Getting Hit By Stage Equipment

10/22/2018 4:52 PM PDT

The Weeknd avoided near disaster when an unsecured object fell from the top of a stage and landed just feet away from the singer. 

Abel posted a clip from his performance in Mexico City Sunday night that shows a piece of equipment come loose and drop to the ground. Unclear if the singer saw the object fall, but if he did, he didn't flinch and continued to sing "Party Monster" like nothing happened.

A cause for the mishap is not yet known -- but weather conditions were anything but ideal -- it was very windy and poured rain most of the show.  

Abel is set to perform in Mexico City again Monday night and lucky for him, and the crowd, the forecast calls for clear skies ... and hopefully no falling stage equipment either. 

Bob Barker Rushed to Hospital ... Serious Back Pain

10/22/2018 3:44 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bob Barker is hospitalized in L.A. after paramedics responded to his Hollywood Hills home ... TMZ has learned.

L.A. Fire Department got to the 'Price is Right' legend's home Monday around 1 PM, and immediately transported him to Cedars-Sinai hospital. He was sitting up on a stretcher, and seemed responsive, as they wheeled him into the emergency room.

His manager tells us, Bob woke up Monday morning with a major flare in back pain. His family decided to call in the professionals to transport him to the hospital ... rather than risk it themselves.

94-year-old Bob suffered a nasty fall last year that required medical care ... and we're told he'd just gone to the hospital last week for a follow-up visit related to that fall.

Blac Chyna Wasted Appeal to Voters It's the Midterm, Bitches!!!

10/22/2018 3:01 PM PDT

Blac Chyna is ripping a page out of Taylor Swift's electoral playbook -- except Chyna's version sounds a bit more drunken ... and hysterical, TBH.

BC was leaving Mastro's in Bev Hills and, right off the bat, it was clear she had more than water at dinner. She did have a designated driver, who failed miserably at stopping Chyna from ranting about the importance of registering to vote and lots of other stuff.

Yup ... BC was dead serious about the midterm elections, but her execution was lacking. She could barely keep her balance before imploring everyone to look up their state's deadlines for voter registration.

She almost slurred her way through a breast cancer awareness statement.

Imagine how much more effective Taylor's message could have been if she had a couple margaritas beforehand!

Fittingly, her bizarre news conference came to a crashing halt when she got into an altercation with one of the photogs recording her.

Politics ... it ain't for everyone.

'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' Spice Goes All White Face

10/22/2018 2:04 PM PDT
Breaking News

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Spice has a lot of people talking the day she's pushing out new music -- but they're not talking about her singing -- it's her white face.

Spice posted a pretty shocking image of herself with super light skin Monday along with a message about her new mixtape. 

A rep for Spice tells us there's a track on the mixtape called "Black Hypocrisy" -- thus the look. 

Spice also deleted all her other posts ... which puts the spotlight on the new pic.

Fans were clearly not digging it, saying, "Wow I can't believe this, Spice! What the F**K have you done?" Another wrote, "Girl you look crazy af."

Candis Cayne Trump Wants to Totally Erase Us

10/22/2018 2:15 PM PDT

Actress Candis Cayne is outraged at President Trump's reported plan to enforce strict new guidelines about transgender people -- because she says his real goal is silencing the community.

Candis -- who is transgender and was featured on her pal Caitlyn Jenner's reality show -- went on "The Morning Beat" with Jai and Mikalah Monday on Out Now Radio ... and ripped Trump. She thinks it's obvious he wants to shut down any national conversation about trans people, and adds ... the policy change could have bigger implications for our democracy.

If you missed it, the Trump administration is considering a plan that would identify everyone by their genitalia ... at birth, according to a NY Times report. The trans community is pissed, as you'd expect.

Although Caitlyn had been a vocal Trump supporter, she's flipped lately -- at least on some issues -- and on Monday afternoon, she made it clear she's lockstep with Candis on Trump's reported new policy.

Remember, Caitlyn's gf, Sophia Hutchins, recently revealed Caitlyn did NOT, in fact, vote for Trump ... despite publicly stating she did.

T.I.'s Melania Video Look-alike Reports New Death Threat ... Talk of Assassins-for-Hire

10/22/2018 11:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

T.I.'s Melania Trump look-alike is dealing with a brand new death threat ... one so frightening, it's pushed her over the edge and now police are involved.

Melanie Marden went to the West Hollywood Sheriff's Station Sunday night to report an especially ominous and lengthy death threat via text to her personal cell phone. We're told the text mentioned the hiring of an assassin to kill her.

Melanie met with the cops and filed a report.

We're told the sender of the messages to Melanie told her they'd put a tracking device on her car and bugged her apartment. Part of the message read, "I am pleased to inform you that we have been paid to assassinate you by someone very close to you." 

As we reported ... Melanie says she'd been receiving death threats almost daily since T.I. dropped his music video with Melanie playing the stripping First Lady. It sparked a ton of backlash, but Melanie insisted she had no regrets about taking the role.

As for why the latest threat rocked her so badly, we're told all the other previous ones were posted on social media. We're told Melanie was especially freaked out because the text means someone has her phone number ... and possibly even more personal info.

During a break, Jessie got in on a little splash action. Check out the gallery -- plenty of green to cure your Monday blues.

Sarah Silverman Louis C.K. Pulled Masturbating Move on Me ... I Gave Him Consent

10/22/2018 10:03 AM PDT
Breaking News

Louis C.K. whipped out his junk in front of Sarah Silverman, and masturbated in front of her -- but she was totally cool with it ... most of the time.

Yeah, we just said that. Sarah made the pretty startling reveal Monday on the 'Howard Stern Show' ... telling Howard about her early days in comedy with Louis. She says he asked if he could masturbate, and she told him, "F**k yeah, I want to see that!"

Sarah said there were times she told him no, and he would comply. She added they'd also go streaking together while "letting our freak flags fly."

She made a very important distinction, though, between herself and the women who accused him of sexual misconduct. Sarah says she and Louis were peers, on the same level as they were getting their starts -- unlike his accusers, over whom he had power in the biz.

We got Louis a couple weeks ago in NYC, and he's definitely in better spirits these days.

Sarah says she's fine with him making a comeback, as long as he addresses the allegations onstage ... and maybe she's made that point to him. He had a gig outside Boston over the weekend, and made a quick reference to having had a bad year.

Jerry Jones Hails African American Museum Trip ... No Publicity Stunt

10/22/2018 11:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Jones says Monday's team trip to the National Museum of African American History and Culture was not a P.R. stunt to ingratiate him with black fans ... it was the players who pushed for the visit. 

TMZ Sports spoke with the Dallas Cowboys owner outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. -- where JJ was flanked by a team of armed guards -- and asked about the criticism he's been receiving online. 

Here's the breakdown ... after the team announced the trip, there was an immediate backlash from people who called it a "PR gesture. Nothing more" to help Jerry -- who's been one of Colin Kaepernick's most vocal critics

So, kudos to our camera guy who asked Jerry directly if it was a publicity stunt -- and this is how Jones responded. 

"Well, I don’t think that the case. This is a player effort and our players wanted to do this. It’s their great idea and we sure wanted to do it and be a part of it."

Jones also raved about how much he loves D.C. -- saying the city "Makes ya proud to be a part of America."

He added, "Just to be here it’s always fabulous to get to come up here. To play Washington and get to just be reminded of what a great nation this is."

We also asked if the team was still considering bringing back Dez Bryant

Jerry shot that down -- and defended his current WRs. 

We also spoke with head coach Jason Garrett about how he plans to get the team back in the W column and why the trip to the African American Museum was important to him.

Kylie Jenner Sued You Stole 'Born to Sparkle'

10/22/2018 8:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner is being sued for straight-up jacking another cosmetic line.

A company named Sheree Cosmetics is suing Kylie and her company, Kylie Cosmetics, for allegedly stealing its "Born to Sparkle" makeup line. In docs, obtained by TMZ, Sheree claims it has its own "Born to Sparkle" collection but Kylie started making her own "Born to Sparkle" eyeshadow with similar colors and packaging.

Kylie's birthday collection features lip gloss, lipstick, lip liner and glitter eyes, and it launched on August 6. The "Born to Sparkle" eyeshadow was part of that line. Sheree Cosmetics says it filed for a trademark on August 30, 2018 ... so this might be a tough one to prove.

Sheree is suing for unspecified damages. We've reached out to Kylie, so far no word back.

Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson Engagement Was Hollow ... No Wedding Planned

10/22/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson both seemed to know marriage wasn't in the cards, even after they got engaged, because they never lifted a finger to seal the deal.

They got engaged in June, and our sources say an entire summer passed without locking down a venue, buying a wedding dress, or even picking a date. We are told Ariana talked about a wedding with her mom, but that's all it was ... talk. 

The months of inaction predate the death of Ariana's ex, Mac Miller, last month. As we reported, Mac's death was the beginning of the end of Ariana and Pete's relationship, because she was emotionally paralyzed.  

The only real signs of happily ever after were a $100,000 engagement ring -- which she's already given back -- and a pet pig which she's kept.
