Johnny Depp Makes Trump Assassination Joke

6/22/2017 5:47 PM PDT
Breaking News

Johnny Depp apparently didn't learn a damn thing from Kathy Griffin ... he just went and made a joke about killing President Trump.

Depp was speaking to a crowd at the Glastonbury Festival Thursday when he starting talking Trump, saying ... "I think he needs help." Then he asked the crowd ... "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?"

The crowd's reaction -- mostly cheers, but Depp still attempted to backpedal a little bit from his clear reference to John Wilkes Booth killing Abraham Lincoln in 1865.

We're guessing Depp can expect a call from the Secret Service ... stat. His comments would be controversial at any time, but especially now ... just weeks after Griffin went through the wringer.

Mel B I'm Not Paying My Ex $4k/Month to Eat! Tells Him to Get a Job

6/22/2017 5:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B's drawing a line when it comes to footing the bill for her estranged husband's food, clothing and cell phone habits ... calling his "wish list" a pipe dream.

Mel filed docs shooting holes in Stephen Belafonte's request for emergency spousal support. For instance, she says the $4,300 for food and groceries he wants comes to $140 per day, or as she puts it ... a week's worth of food for a typical family of four.

She's also not down with his $2k monthly clothing allowance ... since she says he took his full wardrobe when he moved out of their house. Ditto for his $11k per month on housing -- she points out, he's just staying with friends.

Belafonte also needs a new cell phone plan, according to Mel. In the docs she scoffs at his asking for $750 each month ... calling it an "exorbitant" cost for ONE phone. She's got a point.

As for him crying poverty -- Mel says if he's working full-time at Serafina, and not making a dime, he "should get a job at a different restaurant." Mind you, Stephen and Mel are co-owners of that joint.

Meanwhile, Mel was in court Thursday to deal with her restraining order against ex-nanny, Lorraine Giles. The judge threw out the order because Giles was never personally served.

Bill Cosby Lawyers Approve Sex Assault Chats Despite Looming Retrial

6/22/2017 4:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bill Cosby's moving forward with plans to host town hall meetings where he'll discuss sex assault cases and how to avoid them -- and surprisingly ... his lawyers are totally cool with it.

Cosby's high profile spokespeople, Andrew Wyatt & Ebonee Benson, told us they've been flooded with requests for Cosby to, essentially, coach up young people on not getting caught in the same situations he did. 

It seems like an odd move, considering almost anything he says during these meetings could be used against him when his retrial in the Andrea Constand case begins.

Still, Wyatt and and Benson say Cosby's legal team has signed off on him doing this -- but admitted attorneys will prep him, and also be watching closely to make sure there he doesn't make a costly misstep.

Julia Roberts' dog once was lost, but now is found and back in her yard ... thanks to her neighbor and a mobile app that connects everyone in her hood.

Someone in Julia's Malibu community found her chocolate lab, Major, earlier this month at Little Dume Beach near Point Dume in Malibu ... and then posted the news using Nextdoor -- an online social network specifically for neighbors.

The post read "Found Chocolate Lab," which was listed in the Lost & Found section of Nextdoor's Point Dume page. Sure enough ... Julia's husband, Daniel Moder, responded and got the contact info of the person who found Major. 

A neighbor tells us the pup was safely returned. Happy ending for everyone. Woof!

6/22/2017 10:43 AM PDT

Bill Cosby wants to spread the word to young people about sexual assault  ... and how to avoid being accused of it.

Cosby's spokespeople, Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson, told "Good Day Alabama" Wednesday the comedian is planning a series of town halls this summer to educate young people about sexual assault.

More specifically, they say he's planning on teaching 'em how to look out for warning signs from potential victims and handle accusations that could follow.

Wyatt says Cosby's gonna start his new tour of sorts in July, explaining that young people -- especially athletes -- need to "know what they're facing when they're hanging out and partying, when they're doing certain things that they shouldn't be doing."

Cosby narrowly skirted conviction in his sexual assault trial after the jury deadlocked 10 - 2.

Gregg Sulkin Single Life Fits Me Like A Glove

6/22/2017 11:06 AM PDT

Some people eat tubs of ice cream after a break-up but Gregg Sulkin's therapy seems to be planks and pull-ups, which he did Thursday morning at an L.A. park ... with impressive results.

To be fair, the "Teen Wolf" star and Bella Thorne split last summer. It looked like they were back on after her botched trip to Cannes with Scott Disick, but it appears she went crawling back to the Lord

As for Gregg, he should have zero problems finding a new chick with those abs, arms, pecs, smile ... you get the picture.

Michael Kors' friendly fashion chat was busted up by a pack of angry protesters who rushed the stage, surrounded the designer, then chanted wild animal noises at him.

Kors had just started a chat with Alina Cho at The Met Wednesday night in NYC when a group of anti-fur activists crashed the stage and yelled ... "Michael Kors is responsible for the deaths of countless innocent animals!" It only got more rowdy from there.

The designer screamed, "Get away from me!" ... and the group -- New York Animal Defenders -- was eventually escorted out.

This is the same group that crashed Kelly Rowland's book signing in April.

Drew Barrymore My Fam's Down with the Zombie Life

6/22/2017 10:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drew Barrymore looked very much the opposite of undead in L.A. with her estranged hubby, Will Kopelman, and one of their daughters -- but they'd still have her back if she opted for the zombie lifestyle.

Drew's got a new show on Netflix called "Santa Clarita Diet" about a mother who turns into a zombie and is forced to eat people. We're guessing Will digs the show based on his response to our zombie hypothetical.

The bigger point here ... this looks like another case of Hollywood exes getting along. Nice trend.

Drew also talked to us about her perfect cameo in the SZA video for the song, "Drew Barrymore." Great casting on someone's part.

John Oliver Sued Coal Mogul Keeps Promise I Warned You Not to Call Me 'Dr. Evil!'

6/22/2017 9:37 AM PDT

11:37 AM -- HBO tells TMZ, "We have confidence in the staff of Last Week Tonight and do not believe anything in the show this week violated Mr. Murray's or Murray Energy's rights."

John Oliver knew what was coming, and now he's got it -- a big fat lawsuit from the head of Murray Energy who apparently doesn't enjoy being called a "geriatric Dr. Evil" ... at least based on the docs.

For nearly a half hour on his show, "Last Week Tonight," Oliver went HAM on Robert E. Murray and his coal mining corporation, which is the nation's largest. The comedian tore into the coal industry in general, and mocked Murray specifically.

In the suit, Murray says the show was a "meticulously planned attempt to assassinate" Murray's character. He also says Oliver deliberately left out facts about an accident that killed 9 miners. Murray's insisted an earthquake caused it, not mining ... and claims Oliver ignored reports that backed his quake theory.

One part of the show focused on minuscule bonus checks some miners sent back to Murray, including one with the words "Eat s**t, Bob" written on it. According to the suit, the company's website was hacked, after Oliver's show aired, and flooded with "Eat s**t, Bob" messages.

Oliver acknowledged Murray's company warned it might sue. Oliver defiantly said, "I know you're probably going to sue me over this. But you know what? I stand by everything I said."

HBO and Time Warner are also named as defendants.
