6/24/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight's presence will be felt at his mother's funeral even though he's not allowed to attend ... 'cause he's paying for the whole thing.

Sources close to the ex-rap mogul tell TMZ ... Suge will fork over around $20k to cover the costs associated with burying his mother, Maxine Chatman. TMZ broke the story ... Maxine died last weekend after suffering a stroke. 

Maxine's plot -- at Rose Hills Memorial Park in Whittier, CA -- has already been covered. The funeral service will be held there early next month. As we first reported ... Suge's not allowed to attend the funeral because he's an inmate who falls under a category that makes him ineligible to attend funerals ... that category is murder defendant.

We're told Suge's devastated by that. What's more ... He can't even get photos of the service. Suge's not allowed to get any mail either. Maxine was 77. RIP.

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber's head of security unleashed a stream in EPIC proportions after he was arrested for DUI ... and TMZ's obtained the police body cam footage that'll BLOW. YOUR. MIND.

The footage starts with Bieber's bodyguard, Michael Arana, in the back of a squad car after he was busted back in November 2017. You can see and hear him tell the officer he needs to use the restroom. The cop replies, "How bad is it?" Michael says, "Real bad" ... and he was NOT kidding.

Check it out ... what happens next was life imitating art. Hence, this 'Revenge of the Nerds 2' clip, which is EXACTLY what crossed the cop's mind after Michael finally finished. INSANE.

We broke the story ... Michael was arrested in Miami after the car he was driving in smashed into a police car, badly injuring the cops, one of whom was so badly injured he was airlifted to a hospital.

Michael lucked out BIG TIME because he avoided felony charges

EXCLUSIVE

U.S. Olympic legend Greg Louganis -- the greatest diver of all time -- says even world-class athletes like him aren't immune from bullies ... telling TMZ Sports he was mocked as a kid for his last name. 

"Loose anus," Louganis says ... "That's what they used to call me."

Greg says he didn't really let the name-calling bother him because he was a kid at the time and chalked it up to kids being kids. 

Of course, Greg went on to become a world-famous 4-time gold medal winner, who many believe is the greatest EVER in his sport. 

"I mean kids do that," Greg said ... "I can't remember some of the other names from kids in my class. I think loose anus was probably the worst one."

Tomi Lahren The Left's Disgusting ... I Wouldn't Even Treat Kaepernick Like That!!!

6/23/2018 6:20 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tomi Lahren says civility is dead -- on the Left -- because she'd never treat someone the way Sarah Huckabee Sanders got treated at a Virginia restaurant ... not even Colin Kaepernick.

We got the FOX News contributor at LAX Saturday, and she slams the recent trend of conservatives being booted from restaurants due to their political allegiances. Tomi backs up her take with a hypothetical scenario of being seated next to the unsigned NFL QB and how she'd handle it.

She says, "Even though everyone knows I vehemently disagree with everything he says he stands for" ... she claims she'd walk up to Kaep, shake his hand, and the 2 would have a good convo.

Tomi says it's all about respect, and the "weak" left has none of it ... a stance she echoed earlier on Twitter.

Don't forget, Lahren received some impolite treatment at a Minneapolis bar last month ... so you can't say she doesn't have some experience on the subject. Bryan Cranston says he does, too.

Exclusive Details

5:00 PM PT -- We're told the Alex Theatre and area surrounding it has been cleared and no explosives or weapons were found. The 8 PM show will go on as planned.A summer concert with the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles -- featuring Emmy Award-winning actor Leslie Jordan -- was cut super short after a bomb threat ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... an evacuation was ordered at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA right after the show's opening number, because a bomb threat was called into the box office. Jordan -- known for playing Beverly Leslie on "Will & Grace" -- was on stage at the time and got escorted off immediately.

We're told cops have the entire block taped off and bomb-sniffing K9s have shown up to search for any weapons or explosives.

The 2 PM concert has been canceled due to the threat, but we're told if cops can clear the theater in time and ensure everyone's safety ... the 8 PM show will go on.

Bryan Cranston Maybe Trump's Team Tips Bad? JK ... Restaurant 86ings Aren't Cool

6/23/2018 2:52 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bryan Cranston's got a theory on why members of President Trump's administration keep getting driven out of restaurants ... but he's only kidding.

We got the "Breaking Bad" legend at LAX Saturday and told him about Sarah Huckabee Sanders getting kicked out of a restaurant on moral grounds, and after a quick dad joke ... he told us how he really feels.

Cranston says he hopes we can start coming together in this country to find middle ground, because as it stands now ... there's too much hate to get anything constructive done.

He tells us he doesn't believe anyone should be refused service or forced out of a food joint based on their political standing either ... then makes one more joke for the road.

Michael Rapaport Mile-High Hero ... Saves Airplane from Emergency Situation

6/23/2018 11:24 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

12:25 PM PT -- Sources close to American Airlines tell us ... airport authorities and FBI spoke to the passenger who tried to open the emergency door, and determined he really was confused ... so they let him go. We're told he continued on a flight from L.A. to Vietnam to visit his mother, who is ill.

Michael Rapaport sprung to action and stopped a guy who was trying to open the emergency door on an airplane mid-flight ... according to another passenger.

Fox Sports director Ted Kenney tweeted about the ordeal, saying he was on a flight to L.A. from Houston early Saturday morning when he heard a commotion several rows ahead, and saw the "Atypical" actor jump out of his seat and rush toward a guy yelling, "What the f*** are you doing?!"

Kenney says by the time he and a couple BIG3 players who were also on the flight ran up, Michael had the guy by the collar and pulled him away from the emergency door. He told the crew the guy was trying to open it.

The man's excuse -- allegedly -- was he thought it was the bathroom door.

Rapaport also took to Twitter to joke about the scary incident, giving a shout-out to ballers, Glen 'Big Baby' Davis and Baron Davis for helping diffuse the situation, as well.

The crew was returning from Houston from the opening night of the second season of the BIG3 league.

And Rapaport comes away from the trip with a couple new nicknames -- Air Marshal Mike ... and Michael RapaPort Authority.
