Bruce Springsteen Born to Tan ... On Geffen's Super-Yacht

8/23/2017 12:38 PM PDT

Bruce Springsteen is The Boss wherever he goes ... and that especially applies when he's soaking up some sun aboard the most popular yacht in celebdom.

Bruce was seen lounging Wednesday on David Geffen's yacht off the coast of Ibiza -- with his wife, Patti Scialfa, hanging out nearby in a robe. Calvin Klein was also there with his model bf, Kevin Baker.

Bruce started out in white swim trunks, but then swapped 'em for a darker pair ... which he eventually yanked up to catch some rays on his thighs.

Whoah ohhh ... he's on fire.

'Blacks for Trump' Guy Ex-Cult Member ... Once Charged for Conspiring in Murders

8/23/2017 11:37 AM PDT

The guy with the "Blacks for Trump 2020" sign at the President's Phoenix rally is an ex-cult member ... who was once charged with conspiring in 2 murders.

Michael Symonette was once a member of the Yahweh ben Yahweh cult, led by preacher, Hulon Mitchell Jr. -- who was federally charged in 1990 with conspiracy in multiple killings, one of which included a beheading in the Everglades. 

Symonette himself -- as well as at least 10 other cult members -- was charged in the '90s for allegedly conspiring to commit 2 murders ... this after his brother told jurors Michael helped beat one man and jammed a stick into another guy's eye. 

He was later found not guilty.

As we told you ... Symonette runs a website that's pretty out there -- accusing "ISIS & HILLARY RACE WAR PLOT TO KILL ALL BLACK & WHITE WOMEN OF AMERICA" ... among other racially charged allegations. 

Apparently, Blacksfortrump2020.com was just the tip of the iceberg for this dude. Good placement, team Trump.

Gavin Rossdale Cops Crash House Party ... at 10 PM!!!

8/23/2017 12:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gavin Rossdale needs to find new neighbors or a new place to party because the ones he has now aren't cool with his rock 'n' roll-ISH lifestyle.

Gavin pulled the plug on his house party in the San Fernando Valley after LAPD showed up for a noise complaint. Mind you, this was no 2 AM rager -- instead, we're told the call to cops came in around 10:15 PM.

When cops showed up, we're told they spoke to Gavin, and he was totally cooperative -- dropping the typical busted teenager line ... I was just breaking it up, anyway.

Gavin, who's dating model and actress Sophia Thomalla these days, has been hard at work in the studio lately, so maybe he was just feeling a groove.

Studio bound

Taylor Swift Staking 'Reputation' On New Album

8/23/2017 10:26 AM PDT

Taylor Swift's taking the bad rap she's been getting, and pouring it into her "Reputation" ... the title of her new album.

Taylor just announced she's dropping her sixth album on November 10. She's been largely MIA for the past year since her fling with Tom Hiddleston went south, and her feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

The "Reputation" cover art is riddled with Taylor's name in print headlines -- a strong hint she's gonna address all the drama in her songs. She's been posting videos of a slithering snake all week ... leading people to think it has something to do with her first single, which drops Thursday.

If you recall, after Kim called Taylor out on her Kanye lie several people flooded Taylor's social media with snake emoji comments.

Based on the album cover ... looks like Taylor's doing what she does best -- making lemonade outta lemons. Even though that's Bey's thing now.

Judge to DMX I'll Let You Off House Arrest If You Get Into a Drug Program

8/23/2017 10:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DMX is off house arrest with one big catch -- he's gotta check into a treatment program to get clean ... TMZ has learned. 

A judge signed off this week on X entering an inpatient treatment program for substance abuse -- and as part of the deal, he'll be able to leave his house without wearing an ankle monitor.

According to the court docs, obtained by TMZ, all other bail conditions are in place for X while he's out on bond for his federal tax evasion case. He'll still have to get permission to travel out of New York state, but can travel to the facility without issue. It's unclear where the treatment program is located.

X's attorney, Murray Richman, tells us X entered rehab because his drug usage had become impossible to manage. 

As we first reported ... he's already requested approval to travel for some shows, but we don't know if his treatment will affect those concert dates.

Dallas McCarver 911 'There's Something In His Throat'

8/23/2017 8:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained the Dallas McCarver 911 call -- made by a friend who found the 26-year-old bodybuilder passed out in his apartment ... after apparently choking on food. 

The friend tried like hell to help McCarver -- performing CPR and other lifesaving maneuvers -- but he wasn't able to bring him back. 

The friend says McCarver had been taking Insulin -- and suggested he may have collapsed because of a medical condition related to the medicine, which usually treats diabetes. 

McCarver had collapsed onstage at a bodybuilding event back in March. It seems the friend believes McCarver may have experienced a similar situation while eating, which led to the fatal choking episode. 

McCarver was transported to a nearby hospital and was pronounced dead early Tuesday morning. 

R.I.P. 

Anti-Trump Protester Awww Nuts!!! Shot with Rubber Bullet

8/23/2017 6:45 AM PDT

Protesting Donald Trump comes at a price sometimes ... just ask the guy whose family jewels got blasted during a clash with Phoenix cops.

First off, we should say it was reportedly a rubber bullet that smashed the guy square in his crotch -- but hey, that's still a bullet. The guy was part of a group protesting outside the President's Tuesday night rally, and while he was armed with a mask to ward off tear gas ... he clearly forgot a cup.

Thomas Jefferson said a little rebellion now and then is a good thing. Of course, he never took a shot to the nuts. Far as we know.

Usain & D-Wade GO FULL DMX ... In Greek Nightclub

8/23/2017 7:45 AM PDT
Breaking News

They stopped. They dropped. They shut 'em down AND opened up shop. 

Usain Bolt and Dwyane Wade went all the way back to '98 at a nightclub in Greece Tuesday night -- grabbing the mic and busting out DMX's legendary "Ruff Ryders' Anthem" ... and it was AWESOME! 

D-Wade's in Mykonos for an anniversary trip -- no word on why Bolt's there -- but they met up behind the DJ booth in a Mykonos nightclub and partied like they were old friends. 

We're sure DMX woulda loved to have been there too ... if he wasn't on house arrest

President Trump Rally 'Blacks for Trump 2020' Sign Holder Claims Hillary, ISIS Out to Kill Black and White Women

8/22/2017 8:51 PM PDT

It was an absolutely bizarre scene ... the guy Donald Trump's people strategically placed behind the President at Tuesday's Arizona rally with a sign that read "Blacks for Trump 2020" is the president of the group, and he believes "ISIS & HILLARY RACE WAR PLOT TO KILL ALL BLACK & WHITE WOMEN OF AMERICA."

The guy's name is Maurice Symonette and he was having a good 'ol time Tuesday night at the rally. His website is one gigantic rant, with such statements as, "Make Cherokees & the Indians Pay Taxes."

The guy is on a mission against the Cherokees ...  "The real KKK slave masters revealed ... they are Cherokee Indians."

The website is wacko ... Blacksfortrump2020.com ... read at your own peril.

John Legend You Can't Teach an Old President New Tricks

8/23/2017 6:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Legend says the ship has sailed for him when it comes to Donald Trump because, well, you know what they say about leopards.

John arrived at LAX Tuesday night and our photog wanted to know if Trump's statements about bigotry and racism have earned him a second chance. John could not be clearer -- how he says it is as significant as his words.

John clearly thinks ideology combined with age make it impossible for a man like Donald Trump to see the light.

David Beckham I'm with Ya, Son! Takes Brooklyn to College

8/23/2017 7:12 AM PDT

David Beckham's still that dad snapping pics of his kid's first day of school as he sends his eldest, Brooklyn, off to college.

Brooklyn won't be far from his namesake borough -- he's studying photography at NYC's prestigious Parsons School of Design. The kid already released his first book of photography, "What I See" ... just this month.

Based on how closely Becks is following, and documenting Brooklyn's every step -- we'd say someone's suffering a little separation anxiety.

They grow up so fast.

Exciting times and hard work coming for this little man ... Proud of you bust ❤️ @brooklynbeckham @victoriabeckham

Bob Harper I Got A Second Chance ... I'm Doin' It Veggie Style!!!

8/23/2017 7:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

PETA has a friend in Bob Harper, who says he's cut meat completely out of his diet after almost dropping dead from a massive heart attack back in February.

We got the 'Biggest Loser' trainer and host in Bev Hills Tuesday and he looked healthy as a horse. 

While his heart attack was triggered in part by genetics, Bob says he's made a bunch of lifestyle changes after getting a second chance at life, which is crazy to think since he was already such a health nut.
