George Clooney I'm Suing Over 'Illegal' Pics of My Twins

7/28/2017 8:03 AM PDT
Breaking News

George and Amal Clooney are ready to defend their infant twins in court ... as they vow to sue a French magazine that published pics of them.

The mag, "Voici," published shots on Friday of the Clooneys cradling Alexander and Ella. They appeared to be in a backyard, and George says that's exactly what happened ... and he's pissed.

In a statement he says, "Over the last week photographers from Voici magazine scaled our fence, climbed our tree and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home. Make no mistake the photographers, the agency and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law."

Assuming it went down as George said ... he's got a strong case. Under French law, public figures -- like George -- can only be photographed while going about their public lives ... and only for journalistic purposes.

Even in Italy -- where George and Amal were in the photos -- photogs cannot peep into a private residence or take photos of people or objects hidden from normal visibility.

George says, "The safety of our children demands" he go forward with a lawsuit.

The magazine responded saying the pictures published "are a response to a public demand" and that the pictures "do not put in danger Mr. Clooney, his wife or their kids."

I want to let my community and the fans worldwide know that we feel your love. We feel your loss as well. My babies are so young to have lost their daddy."

Chester, who has 3 kids with Talinda, hanged himself in the family's new Rancho Palos Verdes Estates home.

Talinda says she lost her soulmate and her kids lost their hero. Talinda also asks that fans help keep his memory alive as he's now "pain free singing his songs in all of our hearts."

She also asks fans to turn to one another when they're in pain, and adds, "Chester would've
wanted us to do so."

Breaking News

R. Kelly is finally showing his face -- sort of -- to deny rumors he's running a 'sex cult' in his homes, and he's clearly concerned about his bottom line.

Kelly recorded a video message, telling fans, "Despite all of the crap y'all hearing I will be coming to the East Coast to do my show." He has 3 straight nights of concerts, starting Friday night in Virginia Beach.

It's the first time Kelly's been seen since the family of Joycelyn Savage, one of his girlfriends, came forward to claim the singer was holding their daughter and other women against their will. As we first reported Joycelyn denied, on camera, she's Kelly's captive.

Two things about Kelly's new video: it sounds like he's trying to ensure the allegations don't hurt ticket sales.

And also ... he desperately needs a better camera. And lighting.

EXCLUSIVE

Drake's thirsty burglar amped things up with her latest attempt to enter his Hidden Hills mansion ... going off on cops and getting her ass pepper sprayed.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the 24-year-old woman -- who previously got busted sipping Sprite in Drizzy's mansion -- returned Thursday morning, and told security she was on the list. The attempted Jedi mind trick didn't work, and when a guard told her to beat it ... she refused.

Things went south quick when cops arrived -- we're told she spit at 3 deputies. When she tried to reload her saliva ... cops blasted her with pepper spray, and arrested her for trespassing and assault on a police officer.

Drake wasn't home at the time ... same as her April arrest in his bedroom. As we reported, Drake's peeps contacted the L.A. County D.A. to get them to cut her a break. 

No good deed ... 

Prince Harry Just Call Me Coach

7/28/2017 7:45 AM PDT

Prince Harry turned into a suburban dad struggling to get a bunch of hyper kids to listen to him -- but at least it was just for a day ... and for charity.

Harry was coaching a handball match for toddlers at an East London charity event. Most of the kids didn't seem to pay much attention to the Prince -- in other words ... he's ready to coach youth soccer in America.

The charity's called Fit and Fed and is similar to Michelle Obama's Let's Move program, promoting nutrition and an active lifestyle for kids.

Harry was pretty patient with these tots though -- maybe a career change?

Nah, he's a freakin' Prince!!

Floyd Mayweather's Ex Blasts McGregor Dom. Violence Is Not a Joke

7/28/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE


Floyd Mayweather's ex-GF is FURIOUS at Conor McGregor over a "trolling" stunt that mocked her domestic violence incident with Floyd ... saying he's shamelessly profiting from her pain.

The woman is Josie Harris -- who Floyd was convicted of attacking during a 2010 domestic violence incident at the boxer's Vegas home in front of their 3 kids. Mayweather spent 2 months behind bars for the attack.

McGregor "trolled" Floyd over the incident last week by wearing an NBA jersey of C.J. Watson -- the man Floyd accused Josie of secretly texting in 2010, which led to the violent altercation.

Josie wasn't laughing when she saw Conor's stunt -- and claims CM's doing nothing more than exploiting her trauma to promote his superfight with Floyd next month.

"[The stunt] demonstrates not only an insensitivity toward the emotional wellbeing and privacy of the victim of Mayweather’s dom. violence, but also a general disregard for the physical and emotional trauma and long-lasting psychological impacts suffered by victims of dom. abuse," Josie's attorney, Dan Friedlander, tells TMZ Sports

"On behalf of Josie Harris, her and Mayweather’s three children, and all victims of domestic violence, we ask that Conor McGregor refrain from capitalizing off of the trauma suffered by her and other victims of domestic abuse."

Ex-'RHONJ' Star Lauren Manzo's Salon Avoids Full Blown Fire By A Hair

7/28/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The hair salon co-owned by Caroline Manzo's daughter narrowly escaped going up in flames when an electrical fire broke out in the basement ... TMZ has learned.

Lauren Manzo's Westchester, NY branch of Full Blown -- co-owned with her pal, Lia Cagliostro -- filled with heavy black smoke last weekend while customers were mid-styling. Lia tells us the only warning they had was flickering lights. She thought it was just a blown fuse, but then everything went dark in the smoke cloud.

Firefighters battled for hours, and everyone got out safely. The salon itself wasn't as lucky -- even though firefighters beat back flames, there was severe water damage from fire hoses. Lia says they had to trash all their hairdryers, brushes and clips ... which reeked of smoke. 

The building still doesn't have power, and will need rewiring, but they're planning to reopen next week.

In the meantime, their NJ branch, formerly seen on 'RHONJ,' is still fully blowing ... hair.

Amy Schumer's gladly hanging on to her past, and to a couple old co-workers from back in her days waiting tables at Michael Jordan's famous restaurant.

Amy went back to Jordan's The Steak House Thursday in NYC ... where she used to be a server back in '04. These days Amy's hauling in a little more than she did then -- $37.5 mil in 2017, according to Forbes.

But she was still down to reminisce with Milton and Edgar -- who she worked with back then. Amy also posed with Eddie, who's now a service manager.

We're told Amy called in advance to order and pay for her meal -- filet mignon with a side of creamed spinach. Eddie hooked up Amy in MJ's private dining room.

And yeah, Amy paid it forward ... leaving an $80 cash tip on her $67 lunch tab.

Torrei Hart Check Yourself, Amber Rose ... Philly Folks Ain't Ugly

7/27/2017 6:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Torrei Hart has some advice for Amber Rose -- who daringly declared people from South Philly aren't "traditionally attractive" -- but Torrei also has plenty of shots to take.

Torrei, a Philadelphia native herself, ripped Amber for setting a bad example for young women who look up to her. Amber caught heat for her "Drink Champs" interview with N.O.R.E. ... because she said it was a blessing and a curse to grow up beautiful while surrounded by ugly people.

Torrei doesn't hold back her criticism, which included accusing Amber of using plastic surgery to attain her beauty. Still, she tried to offer a positive note or 2 about Amber. Tried.

Amber has since tried to walk back her comments, claiming her words were taken out of context ... and she finds beauty in everyone.

Not sure Torrei's buying what Amber's selling.
