Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Canada Bound for Royal Honeymoon Pretty Lovely Spot, Eh?

5/28/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are heading to a spot with a royal reputation for their honeymoon, and it's not too far from her homeland, just up north of the border ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are going to Alberta, Canada's Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge for their post-wedding getaway, and will be staying at the 6,000 sq. ft. Outlook Cabin ... aka "The Royal Retreat."

Our sources say the resort ordered some gear and goodies it doesn't normally keep on hand for Meghan and Harry. It's unclear exactly when they'll be arriving, but we're told both British and Canadian security will be involved when they do.

So, why this place? Well, it's considered a Canadian Paradise -- tucked away in the middle of Jasper National Park -- and has a rich history of royal guests ... from both England and Hollywood.

King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother stayed there in 1939, and the current Queen and Prince Philip hit it up in June 2005. Celebs like Anthony Hopkins, John Travolta and Bill Gates vacation there ... and it's where the 1954 Marilyn Monroe/Robert Mitchum film "River of No Return" was shot.

Enjoy your stay, you crazy Royal newlyweds!

'The Amazing Race' Teammates Josh & Paul Were 'Big Brother' Enemies

5/28/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The latest duo to join the new season of "The Amazing Race" once viciously competed against each other on "Big Brother," and now they'll be battling for $1 million.

TMZ has learned ... Josh Martinez and Paul Abrahamian are teaming up for the "Big Brother" mash-up season of 'Race.' They were on season 19 of 'BB,' which Josh ended up winning the $500k grand prize ... and Paul came in second.

Despite the fact Paul bitch slapped Josh while they were in the 'BB' house -- we're told they actually became good friends afterward. We'll see if that holds up though, while they race around the world.  

Paul and Josh join other former houseguests Rachel Reilly and Caleb Reynolds, as well as James Huling and Corey Brooks. The 'Race' starts at the end of the month in New Guinea.

Booker T Hulk Hogan Belongs Back In WWE

5/28/2018 12:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

WWE legend Booker T says Hulk Hogan deserves a 2nd chance in the WWE after his n-word scandal ... and tells TMZ Sports he'd welcome Hogan back with open arms. 

Booker T and Hulk have been friends for decades -- and the 53-year-old essentially says Hulk's legacy shouldn't be defined by that racist outburst caught on tape.

"Everbody deserves a second chance," Booker T says ... "It's what life is all about."

As Booker would tell Hogan to his face -- "Man, I would say, 'Welcome back.'"

TMZ Sports previously reported ... Hulk and the WWE are in talks for his return. In fact, the WWE has been taking the temperature of fans to see how he'd be received.

Now, an endorsement from one of the most famous black wrestlers out there will probably cut in Hulk's favor.

Lady Gaga 'Bad Romance' Star Busted in Pantyhose Raid

5/28/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lady Gaga's gold-chinned male muse in her "Bad Romance" video allegedly tried to jack a bunch of women's underthings, but got caught ... TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell us Slovenian actor Yuri Bradac was arrested for shoplifting earlier this month in the San Fernando Valley after mall employees told cops they caught him trying to walk out with pantyhose and other underwear items.

We're told he was detained by Macy's personnel, who told cops they saw Bradac try to steal 3 items worth $29.50 each -- and when they nabbed him they also found stolen perfume from Victoria's Secret. 

Bradac tells us he'd merely stepped outside with the lingerie to look for his wife. He says if he were going to steal, he wouldn't have the items in his hand ... out in the open. He claims it's all a misunderstanding.

BTW ... Yuri was arrested for DUI twice in a month just a couple years back. He's come a long way since 2009.

Jay Leno Forever Young ... With an Oldie (But Goodie) Classic Car

5/27/2018 2:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jay Leno might be 68 years old, but he's driving like he's 25 in spirit ... and maybe about 90 or so on the road. 

The former 'Tonight Show' host was spotted revving up on the I-5 freeway in Burbank, CA Sunday in what appears to be a 1930s-inspired whip. We're not car experts, so don't quote us ... but it kinda looks like a classic '70s era Clénet -- maybe even a 1950 Bentley.

Eyewitnesses tell us Jay was driving about 55 mph in the right-most lane, flashing the peace sign at cars passing him ... and letting the wind have its way with his hair. We're told the car even backfired while he was cruising ... yeah, you know it's an oldie!

There were no other cars or cameras tailing him, so this doesn't seem to have been filmed for his series "Jay Leno's Garage," where he talks shop and tests rides like this all the time.

Oh, and don't worry ... he didn't have any major car trouble here -- unlike last time, when he had to change a tire -- as far as we know. Ah, they don't make 'em like they used to.

Bush Sr.'s spokesperson said Sunday the former president had been hospitalized at South Maine Health Care in Biddeford after experiencing low blood pressure and fatigue. The rep said he'd likely remain there for a few days for observation ... adding 41 was awake, alert and not in any discomfort.

Get well soon, sir.

Kim Kardashian to Rhymefest How Dare You Attack Kanye ... You Loser!!!

5/27/2018 7:01 AM PDT

10:45 AM PT -- A rep for Donda's House Inc. says it will no long use Kanye's mother's name for the non-profit, citing Kim K's attack of its director, Rhymefest. The statement encourages Kim and Kanye to "pick up the baton of service." No word yet on what the org will be called going forward.

Kim Kardashian jumped to Kanye West's defense Saturday, blasting Rhymefest for claiming he abandoned the Chicago charity named after his beloved mother, Donda.

Rhymefest -- a former and frequent musical collaborator of Ye's -- accused him of not funding the org which helps Chicago's youth, and abandoning the cause. Kim was outraged, saying, "You have the audacity to use Kanye's mom's name to try to shed a negative light on Kanye."

She wasn't done ... "You're over levergenging Kanye's name & asked Kanye to donate to u so stop w your fake community politics and lies. Truth is you haven't been able to sustain the foundation."

She says the real reason Rhymefest went on the attack was sour grapes ... "You were trying to get Kanye to listen to your sub par beats." She says the Rhymefest is just pissed because Kanye wouldn't put him on one of his new albums ... "You thought you were really worthy to be on this album" ... she ended with laughing emojis.

Kim says the fam plans to take the foundation away from Rhymefest, adding, "You better believe I will make it my mission to take Donda's House from you and let my children run it the way it should be run!" 

Rhymefest responded to Kim's tweets with a written statement, in which he accused her and Kanye of a "lack of interest or support" in Donda's House's efforts. He also says Kanye recently reached out to him for help on his new album ... not the other way around.

Exclusive Details

Willie Nelson bailed on his show Saturday night in Charlotte, North Carolina ... apparently due to illness.

The 85-year-old country legend was set to perform at the Outlaw Music Festival and even readied his guitar with his red, white and blue strap ... but quickly unstrapped himself, hurled his hat into the crowd and walked off stage.

He seemed pissed, but Live Nation Carolina said Willie was under the weather and just couldn't put on a performance. Live Nation asked fans to hold on to their tickets for a new concert date. It's unclear if they've offered refunds.

Some of the concertgoers said he had walked off stage earlier in the evening but walked right back off. They say they waited an hour the second time around before someone said the concert was off.

A rep for Willie tells TMZ Willie had a stomach bug but he's now well enough that he'll perform Sunday night in Washington D.C. He also promises to do a make good for his North Carolina fans.
