P!nk's Husband Carey Hart Warns Wildfire Looters ... Will Be Shot On Site

11/13/2018 5:00 PM PST
Breaking News

P!nk's husband has a message for the spineless thugs ransacking homes left vacant in the evacuation zones of the raging SoCal wildfires ... try looting our neighborhood, and you'll be shot on site! 

Carey Hart, the former pro motorcycle racer, issued the ominous warning Tuesday on IG, cautioning looters to think twice if they're coming into Malibu. The caption was paired with an undated photo of masked gunmen behind a sign that says, "Looters will be shot on site."

Looting in the evacuation zones is a major issue in the wake of the Woolsey Fire ... thieves know most homeowners have evacuated, and power outages have turned off security systems on many properties, creating prime conditions for looters. 

P!nk and Carey were forced to flee their beachside property in Malibu ... though their home reportedly escaped the flames. 

More than 300 law enforcement officers have been dispatched to guard the evacuation zones in L.A. and Ventura County ... but Carey is apparently taking matters into his own hands, and encouraging his neighbors to do the same.

EXCLUSIVE

Cops busted the man they believe pistol-whipped Tekashi69 and kidnapped him ... TMZ has learned.

Federal agents arrested Anthony Jamel Ellison a week ago on a federal warrant. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, a grand jury indicted Ellison on 1 count of conspiracy to obstruct commerce by robbery, 1 count of obstructing commerce by robbery ... and 1 count of carrying a firearm to commit a crime.

Ellison was hauled into jail on Nov. 6, and remains in a federal prison in Manhattan, awaiting trial. He pled not guilty to all charges.

TMZ broke the story ... back in July, 6ix9ine was dragged out of an SUV, pistol-whipped and taken to his home, where multiple suspects jacked $750k in jewelry and more than $15k in cash.

They allegedly drove off with Tekashi, who eventually managed to escape from the vehicle and hitchhiked to a hospital.

Sources connected to the situation say Ellison had been part of Tekashi's management crew before 6ix9ine's career skyrocketed. According to law enforcement sources, Ellison is a known affiliate of the 9 Trey Bloods gang.

Stan Lee and his daughter, J.C. Lee, were working on a brand new superhero before he died, and she's vowing to push forward with the project.

J.C. was on Tuesday's "TMZ Live" to talk about her father's legacy, and revealed they have a new hero named Dirt Man in the works. J.C. created the character, but she says Stan worked with her on developing him ... right up until his last weekend. 

As for what Dirt Man's powers are, or his origin story -- J.C. would only say "it's very interesting." However, she did tell us whether you'll see him in comics or on the big screen. 

She got choked up discussing Stan's love for the fans ... something she says started many, many decades ago. J.C. has a specific plan that will keep her dad's legacy going. 

As we first reported, Stan died Monday after he was rushed to a hospital from his Hollywood Hills home.

Matt Barnes stays winning ... 'cause he mopped the floor with his twin boys at the bowling alley!!

The match was pretty epic ... the two 10-year-olds were neck and neck with their ex-NBA dad -- only a few pins apart heading into the 10th and final frame.

But, that's when Matt turned the chill all the way off ... and buried two straight strikes for the W.

The best part?? Barnes trash-talked through it all ... especially when his boys asked if he was gonna get the turkey to finish off the victory.

"Call it Thanksgiving, you better f*cking believe it!!!"

Losers had to do push-ups ... and yeah, Matt made sure to keep the chirping going through those too!

Don't worry too much for the boys ... Matt scored a big win in court last week against his ex-wife, Gloria Govan, that'll give them plenty of time with Barnes to get revenge.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Cozyin' Up ... In Royal Family Photo

11/13/2018 2:10 PM PST

The Royals just released a family portrait for Prince Charles' 70th birthday, and HEY NOW, WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT STEAMY COUPLE GETTING COZY IN THE BACK!!!

Check out Prince Harry with his left hand firmly on Meghan Markle's waist ... that's a super intimate pose as far as Royal Family portraits go.  

Our palace sources tell us the photos were snapped this summer at Kensington Palace ... which would have been right around the time Harry and Meghan learned she was pregnant, and Harry and Meghan's facial expressions make it look like they've been getting it on.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking pretty risque compared to the rest of the Royals ... Prince William isn't anywhere close to Kate Middleton's hip as she holds newborn Prince Louis.

In the front row, Prince Charles bounces Prince George on his lap as he sits next to Camilla and Princess Charlotte.

Harry kept his hands-on approach in the fun pic, with Meghan leaning in and laughing.

It's interesting ... the photos were leaked on Twitter earlier Tuesday, defying an embargo ordered by the Royal Family, but the images were quickly taken down. 

Chief Keef Strikes Plea Deal ... In DUI Bust

11/13/2018 2:25 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chief Keef just caught a huge break in his DUI case ... getting a pretty sweet plea deal that will keep the rapper out of jail. 

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Chief got his felony DUI charge reduced by pleading no contest to a reckless driving charge. 

Chief got off with 6 months probation and was ordered to perform 50 hours of community service. 

We broke the story ... Chief Keef was busted for DUI last year in Miami, after cops pulled him over in his green Lamborghini.

Cops say Chief had a ton of drugs in his system when he was arrested, and the list is pretty wild ... Keef tested positive for Morphine, Codeine, Promethazine, THC, Hydrocodone, Norcodeine, Dihydrocodeine and Hydromorphone. That's 8 different drugs! 

The heavy drug use is interesting ... as part of his probation, Chief Keef is barred from using intoxicants in excess. Sounds like it could be a long 6 months for Chief. 

Ex-'Bachelor' Chris Soules Strikes Plea Deal In Fatal Car Crash Case

11/13/2018 1:07 PM PST
Breaking News

Former 'Bachelor' Chris Soules just copped an incredibly sweet plea in his fatal car crash, and it means he's no longer facing a felony ... but he could still end up doing time.

Soules entered a guilty plea Tuesday in Iowa's Buchanan County to one count of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident ... an aggravated misdemeanor.

He had initially pled not guilty to a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, and unsuccessfully tried to get the charge dismissed.

According to prosecutors, Soules rear-ended a John Deere tractor and sent it and its driver flying into a ditch. He stuck around until EMTs arrived, but left before cops got there. He insisted he did everything he could to help the other driver, who eventually died.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Soules attorney testified his client suffered a concussion during the accident, but still called 911 and administered CPR before paramedics got there. 

He was later arrested at his house, but allegedly refused to come out at first. Cops say they found alcoholic beverages in his car that were either empty or partially consumed. Prosecutors argued Chris failed to provide a proper explanation for the booze.

In docs, Soules' lawyer says all on-scene witnesses agreed there was no indication Soules had been drinking.

He'll be sentenced in January and, because he pled guilty to aggravated misdemeanor, he could get up to 2 years in jail.

Iggy Azalea Sued By Injured Skateboarder ... French Montana Connection

11/13/2018 2:17 PM PST

Iggy Azalea just got a not-so-fabulous parting gift from dating French Montana ... a lawsuit.

A skateboarder named Jeffrey Linett claims in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, he was tooling around in WeHo back in November 2016 when a car owned by Iggy and driven by French's little brother, Ayoub Kharbouch, slammed into him.

Since Iggy was the registered owner of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler, she's on the hook if the driver did something stupid.

Linett claims Ayoub didn't see him crossing because he was Snapchatting while driving ... classic negligence.

Linett, who is also suing Ayoub, claims he suffered "severe personal injuries" and emotional distress. 

Stan Lee Shared Last Words with Protégé ... 2 Days Before Death

Exclusive Details

Stan Lee was smiling and cheerful during what would be his final sit-down with the man he trusted to run Marvel Comics.

This is the last known pic of Stan, taken on Saturday, as Stan smiled next to his protege, comic book writer Roy Thomas. Just 2 days before Stan died, we're told he was in good spirits during the visit.

Roy's manager, John Cimino, tells us Roy and Stan talked for about 30 minutes and, surprise ... they discussed comics and superheroes. John tells us Stan's last words before he and Roy left were ... "God bless. Take care of my boy, Roy."

Roy released a statement about his last moments with Stan, noting the Marvel legend "lacked much of the old Stan Lee energy" most people had come to know him by. He also says Stan seemed enthusiastic about future Marvel movie cameos if he could do them without being too much of a burden. Roy called Stan "one of the most important mythmakers of the 20th century."

When Stan stepped back from his Marvel Comics duties, he handed the reins to Roy ... who took over head writing duties for "Spider-Man" and eventually became Stan's first successor as editor-in-chief at Marvel ... in 1972.

Chick-fil-A Packaging Was NOT Made to Fit Straws ... But It's Still Perfect

11/13/2018 12:39 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chick-fil-A customers found a convenient loophole in the company's packaging to turn a cup and straw into a portable table for nuggets ... but it ain't what CfA had in mind when it designed its boxes.

Fans of the fast food joint rejoiced this weekend when a viral meme pointed out you could fit a straw through a hole in the box used for nuggets and rest the delicious pieces on the cup's lid. 

While the life hack is extremely convenient, we've learned it is NOT the original purpose of that hole. In fact, we're told there are 3 tabs on the back of the boxes and they're pushed in by employees to designate whether the box contains nuggets, strips or "other." 

Still, we gotta give the "inventor" credit ... it is a boss use of a carton -- especially if you're someone who's down with the Chick.

Next up ... which came first, chicken or the egg? 

Le'Veon Bell Doesn't Report, Out For Season ... Forfeits $14.5 Million

11/13/2018 1:00 PM PST
Breaking News

Le'Veon Bell ain't playing for the Steelers this year ... and maybe never again -- 'cause the All-Pro RB just missed the deadline to report to the team.

Bell -- who's been holding out since the offseason in search of a new mega-deal with Pittsburgh -- had until 1 PM PT to sign his franchise tag.

But ... the deadline came and went with no Bell to be found.

As we previously reported ... Bell's been tearin' it up on jet skis and in nightclubs during his time away from the squad -- but most, including the team's owner, expected him to be back with the team today.

Bell, though, decided against it ... and will now forfeit ALL of the $14.5 MILLION the Steelers were set to pay him this season.

It's not like Pitt's exactly crying over the move ... James Conner's been killin' it in Bell's stead -- and teammates have ripped the RB for his holdout throughout the past few months.

In fact, even coach Mike Tomlin threw some shade Bell's way Tuesday ... saying if this so happens to be the last time he ever coaches Bell, "So be it."

Jim Acosta & CNN We're Suing Trump Over Yanked WH Press Pass

11/13/2018 9:11 AM PST
Breaking News

President Trump can't take his CNN grudge out on Jim Acosta by yanking his White House press pass ... at least that's what CNN is asserting in a new lawsuit.

CNN and Acosta are taking the extraordinary step to sue POTUS over last week's fiery showdown during a news conference. According to the suit, CNN believes Trump violated its First Amendment right by revoking Acosta's "hard pass" ... thereby hampering his ability to cover the White House.

In the suit, they say Trump and Sarah Sanders are hiding behind the flimsy argument Acosta accosted an intern who was trying to grab his microphone. They point out the video Sanders posted was apparently doctored, and say even Trump later described the incident as not "overly horrible."

CNN says the "sole justification" for the Administration pulling Acosta's pass is "their dislike for [CNN and Acosta]'s coverage" of Trump.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Trump also violated CNN's 5th Amendment due process rights because Acosta wasn't informed ahead of time his credential was revoked.

In fact, Jim posted video of the Secret Service agent confiscating his press pass. The lawsuit -- filed against Trump, Sanders and Chief of Staff Gen. -- seeks to get Acosta's pass returned, stat. 

They're likely facing an uphill battle, though.

Famed attorney Alan Dershowitz told us the physical confrontation between Acosta and the intern will muddy the waters and make it tough for CNN to make its case.
