Danielle Bregoli Breaks Down Over XXXTentacion's Murder ...

6/20/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Bregoli is still taking the news of XXXTentacion's murder hard, and pleading for the violence to end.

We got Bregoli in downtown L.A. where she shed tears over XXX's murder, which Bregoli says needs to be a wake-up call for others like Tekashi69 and Trippie Red who act all big and tough.

Bregoli and XXXTentacion were good friends apparently ... something people didn't really know 'til Danielle shared a video Monday of a phone call she recorded with the late rapper. In the call, XXX apologized about something, although Danielle didn't elaborate on it.

We also asked Danielle about changing her own bad girl image in the wake of XXXTentacion's death, but she couldn't muster up an answer ... because she was too choked up.

Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson Living Large Together in NYC

6/20/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have been moving fast since they hooked up, and now it's onward and upward in the form of a super deluxe apartment in the sky.

The newly engaged couple just moved into a $16 MILLION apartment in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood ... it's a new luxury complex designed by famed architect Zaha Hadid.

Their unit is more than 4,000 sq. ft. with 5 beds and 4.5 baths, and features amazing views of the city and the Empire State Building. The complex has a fitness center, a 75-foot sky lit pool, a private IMAX theater ... and Sting as their neighbor. 

It's unclear if Pete and Ariana dropped a ton of cash to buy the place or if they're just renting, but all signs point to a move over the weekend when she shared a SpongeBob meme with the caption, "Us in our new apartment with no furniture 1 speaker and red vines."

As we reported ... they were arm-in-arm Monday in NYC while out furniture shopping for their new digs, as she flaunted a huge rock on her finger.

Travis Barker Back in Hospital Clots, Infections Get Worse

6/20/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Barker's good news has turned bad -- shortly after getting out of the hospital where he was getting treatment for blood clots, he had to be readmitted ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the Blink-182 drummer was released from the L.A.-area hospital on Monday evening, but had to be readmitted Tuesday morning. Travis went in late last week when doctors discovered he had blood clots in both arms.

We're told the situation's more complicated now. He's also battling a staph infection and something called cellulitis -- an infection of the skin -- in addition to the clots. Doctors are monitoring to see how he responds to blood thinners, and to make sure the clots don't travel to his heart or lungs.

As bad as it sounds, our sources say Travis is keeping a positive attitude, and looking forward to getting back onstage.

Blink had to cancel upcoming shows for their Las Vegas residency at the Palms, but we're told they're planning to make up the dates this fall.

EXCLUSIVE

James Shaw Jr.'s still stoked Chadwick Boseman shouted him out at the MTV Movie & TV Awards ... but his sights are set on a more prestigious prize as he continues his quest to make the world a better place.

The Waffle House hero tells TMZ ... he's hoping to get an invite to the White House to receive a Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the U.S. Shaw's certainly earned it for courageously disarming the Tennessee Waffle House gunman and saving several lives.

It's not all about him, though -- James says he'd like the award so people will get off President Trump's case about it ... and everyone can move forward.

Shaw also touches on his foundation to improve mental health awareness, the tragic death of XXXTentacion ... and his plan to take over the rapper's mission to reach 5 million kids and positively impact their lives.

As we reported, the star of "Black Panther" won the Movie award for Best Hero Monday, but turned the spotlight on the real-life hero ... and gave Shaw his golden popcorn award.

EXCLUSIVE

The heavyweight fight everyone wants to see -- Deontay Wilder vs. Anthony Joshua -- could happen in the next 6 months ... says the man in charge of broadcasting the event.

TMZ Sports spoke to Stephen Espinoza -- Showtime's president of sports and event programming -- who tell us the "ball is rolling" on making the fight happen in 2018.

"Things are moving. Discussions are happening," Espinoza tells us.

Wilder and Joshua have been calling each other out publicly for the last year -- with Wilder recently saying he'd even fly to England to fight Joshua on his home turf.

Both guys seem down to fight -- it's just a matter of locking up a deal.

Fingers crossed he's right!

Breaking News

Corey Lewandowski had a brash -- and incredibly callous -- response to a story about a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome being taken from her mother at the border ... and it set off a fiery live TV exchange. 

Trump's former campaign manager was a guest on Fox News Tuesday afternoon along with Zac Petkanas, a former senior DNC adviser. The 2 got into a heated argument after Lewandowski dropped a "Womp, womp" about the disabled immigrant child being separated from her mom and sent to a detention facility.

Petkanas was beyond incensed, screaming, "How dare you, sir?!" repeatedly ... while Lewandowski tried to shout him down.

The country's immigration policy has been the hot-button topic of the month, and clearly ... this isn't going to cool it off.

Michelle Obama Lunch in Venice Suits Me Well!!!

6/19/2018 3:45 PM PDT

Michelle Obama might be from the Midwest and live on the East Coast, but no one needs to school her on nailing the business cas' look in L.A.

The former First Lady joined some of her colleagues for lunch at the ritzy Gjelina restaurant in Venice ... easily pulling off the beachy business meeting look thanks to those shades, sandals and soft colors. It was also easy to figure out a big shot was in town ... with her Secret Service motorcade tipping off the locals.

Safe to say that among the topics likely discussed at lunch was the heartbreaking situation that's fueled recent rhetoric when it comes to immigration. As we reported ... Michelle joined Laura Bush and condemned the inhumane practice of keeping children in cages after being separated from their families crossing the border.
