Donald Trump Meeting Set with Kasich The Question, Who Blinked?

2/21/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0220-donald-trump-john-kasich-tmzDonald Trump will sit down with John Kasich in the Oval Office Friday, but there's a dispute over who requested the meeting.

Kasich has been MIA in Trump's life since the Republican National Convention in July and refused to support him. Kasich's people say he ended up writing in John McCain for president.

Our Trump sources say it was Kasich who requested Friday's meeting, but our Kasich sources dispute that and say Trump wanted the sit-down.

Our Kasich sources also say the governor is in the dark on the purpose of the meeting ... Trump isn't saying. Trump's people say, "There's no agenda. It's just to catch up."

TV Actors Sinkhole Victims We Fought for Our Lives

2/21/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Two actors drove smack into the L.A. sinkhole that made national news Friday, and they escaped from their car that got swallowed up in the raging storm.

"30 Rock" star Bobb'e J. Thompson and "Lincoln Heights" star Zachary Williams were in 1 of the 2 vehicles swallowed up by a 20-foot sinkhole that ended up closing Laurel Canyon, which connects Hollywood with the San Fernando Valley.

Zachary -- who was behind the wheel of his mom's Honda Odyssey -- says the earth literally moved under their feet, as the back tire hit the growing hole in the road ... disabling it. They scrambled to safety as they watched the Honda disappear into hole filled with rainwater.

They jumped into Good Samaritan mode as they saw a woman in another car who was trapped as it plunged into the sinkhole. They summoned cops, who then were able to save her.

'The Bachelor' Nick and Raven get Down and Dirty

2/20/2017 6:20 PM PST

It's time on "The Bachelor" for Nick Viall to head to the hometowns of the final 4 girls -- the first stop was Raven's crib down south ... and it didn't take long to get real sloppy.

The couple raced through a swamp on ATVs and got stuck ... the perfect excuse for Nick to lose his filthy shirt and make out with her.

Sometimes you gotta go muddin' to find true lovin'.

Foo Fighters & NOFX Supergroup We Need Nut Huggers To Keep Punk Alive!

2/21/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Punk rockers Me First and the Gimme Gimmes' top priority when they hit the road is testicle care -- making sure their nuts are comfy.

TMZ got a copy of the greenroom demands for the super group -- made up of NOFX's Fat Mike and Foo Fighters' Chris Shiflett -- and a 5 pack of Hanes nut huggers are apparently crucial to their success ... as is Nicorette gum, mint flavor only.

They're playing the Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival in May, so organizers have some time to hit a local Target for undies. The rest of their demands are mostly booze-related: 

- 1 bottle of Midori
- 6 pack Wild Irish rose red wine
- 2 bottles Jameson
- 1 bottle Grey Goose 

They also want 2 whole chickens and rash cream -- not for use with the chicken. We're guessing, but ya never know.

Lonzo Ball Blocked By Cybersquatter ... Let's Make a Deal!

2/21/2017 12:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0220-lonzo-ball-tmz-getty-01Pop Quiz -- Guess who owns the rights to LonzoBall.com???

Answer -- It ain't Lonzo Ball

Turns out, the site was snatched up by a huge basketball fan named Jeremy back in 2013 ... in the hopes the kid would blow up one day. 

Now, Jeremy's prediction has come true -- and it puts him in a very precarious position. 

Obviously, Ball -- who some say could be the #1 overall pick in the NBA Draft -- would want that domain to launch his official website.

President Trump Southern White House Sends Flight Schools into Panic

2/20/2017 3:42 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0220-trump-mar-a-lago-no-fly-zone-air-traffic-school-fun-art-GETTY-01Flight schools in the Palm Beach area are taking a big hit because of President Trump's Southern White House ... and at least one school is concerned about terrorism.

Multiple flight school staffers tell TMZ ... the FAA's airspace lockdown is killing business. Whenever Trump's at Mar-a-Lago, flight schools operating within a 10-mile radius of it are shut down.

One school owner tells us he loses around $7,000 a day when Trump is in town, and he's down $56k since the inauguration. Another flight school owner says the buzz in town is that Trump will be there for most weekends through May, so they're bracing for the worst.

Another school owner has an even deeper concern. He won't take his students anywhere in the vicinity of Mar-a-Lago, even though he's allowed to do it when Trump's not in town. He says he doesn't unwittingly want to help someone who is out to harm the President. You'll recall some of the 9/11 terrorists attended flight schools.

Cassidy seemed intoxicated at the concert outside L.A., falling off the stage, forgetting words and unsteady on his feet.

The singer now says he was diagnosed with early-stage dementia ... first reported by People. Sources close to David tell us he has said he was not drinking before the concert.

Cassidy's mom and grandfather struggled with the disease and he says he went to a clinic and was recently diagnosed.

Aaron Carter Attacker He IS Racist ... Needs to Say Sorry to My Whole Town

2/20/2017 12:55 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The guy who ambushed Aaron Carter because he felt the singer made a racial slur against his bandmate is doubling down ... and demanding an apology.

Haze Carbajal tells us ... he's certain Carter's "Bye Felipe" was a racist comment because he and his fellow ILL State band members were the only Hispanics at the show. He says he was offended ... and had no choice but to retaliate.

Despite allegedly sending Aaron to the ER, Haze wants the singer to apologize for disrespecting his people. He also threw some major shade at Aaron's "fame."

Carter maintains he didn't say anything racist.

Angelina Jolie ain't whipping up any boring meatloaf for her brood ... instead she fries up a nice fat, juicy tarantula!

Angie did a big interview with the BBC to talk about her divorce, politics and raising her 6 kids. It was shot in Cambodia, and she decided to teach the reporter about local cuisine ... including crickets, scorpions and spiders.

She admits it's an acquired taste, but she's clearly way into it now. 

It's either disgusting or awesome ... or awesomely disgusting.

Shia LaBeouf Trump Protest Cam Back Up & Running New Mexico Cops Check In

2/20/2017 10:01 AM PST
Exclusive Details

0220-shia-labeouf-new-divide-us-camera-FACEBOOK-01Shia LaBeouf's back in the Donald Trump protest biz after turning on his webcam in Albuquerque ... where cops are NOT anticipating the kinda violence the display sparked in NYC.

APD tells us officers checked in with Shia on Sunday to let him know they would protect his First Amendment rights, but they wouldn't assign any special patrols for the display ... as NYPD did last month.

Shia and his partners, artists Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner, reopened their "He will not divide us" protest Saturday -- the cam is now perched on The Historic El Rey Theater. It's near a downtown police station, so cops say they'd be able to react quickly IF anything happens.

So far, doesn't seem like this will be the lightning rod it was when it shut down 10 days ago -- people are much more laid back, even while protesting, in New Mexico.
