Mark Cuban I'll Take On Trump as a Republican If I Run for Prez in 2020

10/22/2017 6:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Cuban will challenge Donald Trump in the primaries ... IF he decides to run for President in 2020.

Cuban was profiled on the Fox News Channel show "OBJECTified" Sunday night, and he declared which party he'd choose if he were to run ... he says it'd be Republican.

The Mavericks owner says he's still deciding whether he'll throw his hat in the ring, and that a lot depends on whether his wife is down with the run.

Cuban had supported Trump early on in the last race but soured on him -- Cuban felt he wasn't serious about understanding important issues. He became a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton in the general.

"OBJECTified" re-airs Sunday night at 11 PM ET, 8 PM PT.

Justin Timberlake Got the Time? Yup, Super Bowl Halftime Show!

Breaking News

Justin Timberlake is coming back to conquer the Super Bowl halftime show this year ... according to Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon

JT posted a vid Sunday that confirmed reports he was performing at Super Bowl LII, with his and Jimmy's mini skit playing on the phrase "have the time" ... which quickly morphed into "You're doing the halftime show at the Super Bowl??!!" 

As we reported ... the rest of 'NSYNC could possibly join Justin onstage during his performance, which seems even likelier now that he's definitely got the gig.

Can't say the same for Janet Jackson, though. She was recently mum on rumors about a possible reunion, ya know ... after 2004 and all.

We got this feeling ... there probably ain't gonna be a next time.

Kathy Griffin Hard Break with Lisa Bloom ... Over Trump Beheading Pic

10/22/2017 3:58 PM PDT

Kathy Griffin has apparently cut off her old attorney Lisa Bloom ... and it all seems to be traced back to her Trump beheading photo and subsequent press conference.

Kathy tweeted (without much context) early Sunday morning, telling @LisaBloom to "pls stop calling me" and that if she wanted to talk ... she'd have to refund her the "tens of thousands of $$ I wasted on your services" for Kathy to even consider it. 

Lisa responded Sunday afternoon claiming Kathy's attacks were unwarranted ... adding she even went way off script during their press conference back in June. You'll recall ... Kathy said President Trump and his family were bullying her, and attempting to ruin her career

As you watch the video now ... you see Lisa staring at Kathy in disbelief as she speaks. Lisa says Kathy is her first client to not stick to prepared comments they both agreed to -- she also says she got death and rape threats as a result of partnering with Kathy.

Still ... Lisa says she wishes Kathy the best, and even thinks she meant no ill will with the photo. In other words ... see ya.

Ewan McGregor reportedly split from his wife, Eve Mavrakis, as early as 5 months ago ... which became clear after he was seen sucking face with his TV co-star.

Ewan and Eve quietly separated back in May of this year, according to People ... but the news wouldn't have came out if it wasn't for pics taken of him kissing his "Fargo" co-star, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, at a London cafe over the weekend. 

Ewan and Mary Elizabeth play love interests on the show ... looks like they took the romance off-camera too.

As for the now-exes, they've been married since 1995 ... and have 4 daughters together. We reached out to Ewan for further comment ... so far, no word back. 

Harry Styles Fan Grabs His Crotch Onstage ... He Plays It Off

10/22/2017 2:15 PM PDT

Harry Styles is a true professional ... considering he acted like nothing happened when an overzealous fan reached up and grabbed his crotch while he was performing in L.A.

Harry was doing a show Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl, when -- in the middle of one of his songs -- someone reached up from the front row and copped a feel of his goods ... which he quickly batted away and ignored as he went back upstage.

Harry hasn't addressed the groping yet, but you can clearly see he wasn't down with it ... and many have even come out to call it sexual assault ... in a time when the subject is at the forefront in Hollywood.

Sign of the times?

11:25 AM PT -- A rep for Albany PD tells TMZ ... the hotel's manager called cops around 1 AM to report a party on the 2nd floor, plus a smell of weed. We're told hotel staff had gone up and asked Cardi's team to leave, and when cops showed, they were packing their bags to exit. However, the PIO says no evidence pointed to the weed coming from anyone in Cardi's camp, but they left regardless. That's when Cardi was woken up and asked to join them, causing her outburst in the lobby. We're told no one was arrested, and that Albany PD denies allegations of racism.

The rapper was staying at the Hilton Albany in Albany, New York, at at around 1 AM people started complaining about noise coming from her room. Cops tell us there was some sort of disturbance and when Cardi B was confronted by hotel security, it escalated and she was ordered to leave.

You hear her call someone on the staff a "racist motherf*****" and she storms out of the hotel with her entourage and an unidentified male.

Cardi B performed Saturday night at the Times Union Center.

It appears she briefly broke up with boyfriend Offset Saturday but then said she had overreacted.

Rough weekend.

10/22/2017 6:37 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mickey Rourke feels badly for Harvey Weinstein ... and it all has to do with Hollywood envy.

Director James Toback Accused of Sexual Harassment By More Than 30 Women

10/22/2017 10:35 AM PDT

Director James Toback -- famous for films like "Two Girls and a Guy" -- has been accused of sexual harassment by over 30 women ... this in the wake of Weinstein.

The Los Angeles Times posted the story Sunday, in which 38 women accuse Toback of decades-long sexual harassment ... much of it similar in nature to the accusations against Harvey Weinstein.

According to the report, Toback would bring young women into a private space on the pretense of audition talks or a promise of fame ... and then proceed to ask intimate questions. He'd then allegedly dry-hump them or masturbate in front of them.

As we've reported ... Weinstein's been accused of comparable behavior.

Toback has denied the allegations, saying he either never met any of the 30-plus women who've accused him ... or only had brief encounters with them. He also claimed to the Times he was medically incapable of such behavior, citing diabetes and a heart condition.

The director is best known for early films he did with Robert Downey Jr. such as 'Two Girls,' "The Pick-Up Artist," and "Black and White" ... as well as 2008's "Tyson," and 2014's "The Gambler." 

Cardi B Breaks Up Then Makes Up with Offset

10/22/2017 6:44 AM PDT

Cardi B  apparently had a big falling out with Offset -- she may have even broken up with him, but only for a minute.

She just took back what she posted Saturday when she was pretty clearly saying she broke up with the Migos rapper by referring to herself as "single."  

Now she says she "exaggerated a lil bit" and is now back on board.  

It's unclear what the beef was over, but just a few hours ago she posted, "don't get used."

Livin' on the extreme ... it makes you change your mind a lot.

Dr. Phil Accident Victim Lashes Out, Lawyers Up

10/22/2017 7:20 AM PDT

10:39 AM PT -- A rep for Dr. Phil tells TMZ ... the doc spoke with the man who was hit at the time of the accident and was assured he was fine. They add ... if LAPD has any more questions, Dr. Phil will gladly speak with them ... as he believes he was operating well within the law.The skateboarder Dr. Phil hit Friday is pulling out all the stops ... going after Phil and threatening a lawsuit.

TMZ broke the story ... Phil was coming out of a Universal City parking lot Friday when he impatiently attempted to pass a van, striking the 20 something skateboarder.  Cops say Phil stopped, the guy told him he was fine, they shook hands and the Doc left.

The skateboarder, Terrence Bembury, is now aggressively going after Phil.  He posted, "he never got out of the car, checked too see if I was injured, didn't even ask for my name."  Cops dispute that and say Bembury told them he told Phil he was fine, and only later said he wasn't.

Bembury also says, "cops told me he needed to stay until cops came."  Police tell us that's not true, because after the skateboarder said he was fine and there was no damage or injury, Phil was free to leave.  

Bembury posted a pic of a hospital room, saying, "Than Dr. Phil ... It felt amazing getting hit by your Mercedes ... Now I'm going on two days of missing work ... Smh.  I meet with my Lawyer Monday." 

And he goes on ... "This is a 100% winnable vase (sic) since Dr. PHIL ran a stop sign and was in the wrong lane of traffic."  He's right on one count ... cops reviewed surveillance video and say Phil was in the wrong.  Now Bembury needs to prove he was injured and out money.
