Harvey Weinstein Prosecutors Eyeing Obscure Law in Investigation

5/25/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein is now in the crosshairs of prosecutors who are looking to possibly prosecute him under a law that some legal experts say is a giant stretch.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York is looking to see if Weinstein violated the Mann Act. It now prohibits people from taking others across state lines with the intent of engaging in illegal sexual acts. The law was initially designed to prevent adults from transporting minors across state lines for sex.

The law requires the suspect to have formed the intent to commit the act before taking the victim across state lines.

Our sources say prosecutors are looking at at least one actress whom Weinstein flew from one state to another. The stretch is that they will have to prove he asked the actress to travel, knowing that he was going to rape her when she arrived at the destination.

The difficulty in such a case ... Weinstein may have wanted to have sex, but didn't assume from the get-go he would have to rape the woman.

Weinstein has maintained the sexual encounters he has had were all consensual. 

Blac Chyna House Manager Wouldn't Want Family to Sue

5/25/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna firmly believes her late house manager's family is going against her wishes by threatening to sue BC.

Sources close to Blac Chyna tell TMZ ... Patty would have never wanted the family to take out their anger on Chyna because Chyna was more than just Patty's employer. We're told Chyna was like family to Patty ... even helping her pay the rent and giving her money for her kids.

BC's still reeling from losing Patty, who died last week after she was taken off life support following a stroke. As we reported ... Patty, who also helped with BC's clothing line, suffered a stroke in July 2017 but continued to work afterward. She fell into a coma in December due to bleeding on her brain.

Patty's family has reportedly threatened to sue Chyna for not providing her with worker's compensation. We checked and Patty's family has yet to file the suit.

Our BC sources refute claims she was unsympathetic about Patty's dire situation. Those sources say Chyna was very much invested ... sending flowers to the hospital and visiting her. What's more ... BC's 2 baby daddies -- Tyga and Rob Kardashian -- kicked in $15k when the family set up a GoFundMe page.

Bishop Michael Curry Love is the Way, Prez Trump!! God Hears Us, Do You?

5/24/2018 10:37 PM PDT
Breaking News

The Holy Spirit came a knocking for President Trump Thursday night ... in the form of royal wedding preacher Bishop Michael Curry.

The standout star of Prince Harry and Meghan's big day was part of a candlelight vigil in the Capitol that included prayer and song outside the White House. The Bishop told us their goal was spreading a message of "love of God and love of neighbor."

We asked him the $64 million question -- was POTUS paying attention? Bishop Curry assured us a high power was definitely listening to their prayers.

The Bishop's become a bit of an international rockstar since the royal wedding, and he's clearly striking while the iron's hot ... taking his message straight to the leader of the free world. Still, he made it clear the vigil was NOT about politics.

Sue, he had 600 wedding guests and a TV audience of millions believing "love is the way" -- but if he can make DC politicians buy it, we might have a new leader in the clubhouse for a Nobel Peace Prize.

LiAngelo Ball Says NBA Teams Are Interested ... After Private Combine

5/25/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LiAngelo Ball believes his NBA hopes and dreams are alive and well ... telling TMZ Sports there are definitely NBA teams interested in retaining his services.

'Gelo just killed a private combine at the IMG academy down in Florida ... turning in a 37-inch vertical leap, and draining 3's with ease.

Question is, was it enough to make NBA teams think about taking a flier on the middle Ball brother?

We asked LiAngelo if the workouts had drawn any interest from NBA teams when we saw him out at LAX with LaVar, and his answer was simple.

"Yeah, of course."

There were reports that both the Lakers and the Warriors have agreed to workouts with 'Gelo ... but the Warriors refuted those claims soon after they were made public.

That's cool by LaVar, because he told our guy he'd rather 'Gelo play for a California team a little further south.

"I'd prefer him go to the Lakers, like I said. I prefer him to play with his brother. That's the best duo. And him and 'Melo would be the best trio."

Marc Summers TV Sitcom Revivals Helped Bring Back 'Double Dare'

5/25/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Fans of "Double Dare" have TV shows like "Roseanne" and "Will & Grace" to thank for its comeback ... according to former host Marc Summers.

The "Double Dare" reboot returns this June with Marc as an executive producer. When we got him at LAX Wednesday he told us he'd been hounding Nickelodeon to bring back the game show for years, but they finally moved forward when they saw how other reboots were successful

As for not hosting -- the new host is Liza Koshy -- Marc says it's got nothing to do with his OCD since getting down and dirty in the slime was never an issue for him ... which is kinda insane once you hear what they put in the stuff. 

Ex-WFF Mr. Universe Pec Flex Contest with TMZ Photog!! (Guess Who Wins)

5/25/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Calum Von Moger took the WFF Mr. Universe title in 2015, and doesn't look like he's skipped chest day once since taking the crown -- but he was still put to the test by TMZ.

We got Calum Wednesday in Calabasas, where he was shirtless and on crutches. He explained both. We also asked if he can do that pec dance thing -- ya know, flexing to make 'em bounce. Of course Calum can, but the real shocker ... so can our camera guy.

So the stage was set -- in a mall parking lot -- for a good ol' fashioned pec-off!

BTW, Calum's story behind the crutches is pretty freaky. He also shouts out bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger, whom he recently played in "Bigger" ... a movie about Ben and Joe Weider.

Aaron Schlossberg Possible Poison Delivery to Office ... Cops Investigate

Breaking News

Aaron Schlossberg, the attorney whose threats against Spanish-speaking restaurant employees went viral ... was the target of a suspicious white powder delivered to his office.

FDNY was called to his Madison Avenue law firm office where a spokesperson described the scene as a "hazardous materials" situation. The obvious fear is anthrax. At least one person was checked out on the scene, but no one's been transported for medical care ... according to Newsweek.

Schlossberg was reportedly not at the office when the envelope arrived. NYPD has taken over investigating the powder.

Peaceful protesters flocked to his apartment building last week, and blared Spanish language music while serving tacos and tequila shots.

Schlossberg eventually apologized, claiming he's not racist and loves immigrants.

Ben Affleck & Lindsay Shookus Love-In at His New $19 Mil Crib!!!

5/24/2018 2:43 PM PDT

Ben Affleck is finally moving into his new mansion, and it looks like his girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus, will be spending a lot of time there, too.

Ben was spotted rolling up to his $19.25 million Pacific Palisades home Thursday with a moving truck following close behind. Lindsay and Ben took some time to admire the real estate he scooped up last month ... before starting the unpacking nightmare.

Ha! Kidding. They've got people for that.

As we've reported, Ben started house hunting last year, usually with Lindsay tagging along.

We hear she won't be moving in with him just yet, but she is on summer hiatus from her 'SNL' producing gig -- so, it's a safe bet she'll be very familiar with this new home.

This will be Ben's first time as a solo homeowner since the divorce from Jennifer Garner -- and it's a BIG step up from the ole guest house.

Be it ever so humble, there's no place like a bitchin' $19 million home!
