Serena Williams Preggo Pic Posted By Accident

4/25/2017 6:56 PM PDT
Breaking News

Serena Williams just confirmed her pregnancy announcement was made by accident ... but was only off by about 5 or 6 days.

The tennis star admitted to the social media flub Tuesday at a TED Talks conference in Vancouver with Gayle King -- where she said she had meant to take the pic in private ... but somehow blasted it out the world.

Serena told Gayle ... "On social media, you press the wrong button and thirty minutes later I missed four calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird.’" 

Doesn't sound like she regrets the early announcement -- she said she was gonna publicly disclose it a few days later anyway. The news also came on the heels of her rising back to No. 1 in the women's tennis rankings ... which ain't bad for someone who hasn't played since January.

Unfortunately ... she also had to deal with haters like former tennis pro Ilie Nastase, who made a racist comment about her future baby. She shut him down like a champ, though.

Scott Baio Threatened by Erin Moran's Brother ... Takes Shot at 'Tiny' Junk

4/25/2017 5:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

Scott Baio can count on a can of whoopass if he ever runs into Erin Moran's brother, who wants payback for Scott's comments about Erin's substance abuse.

Tony Moran tore into Scott ... referring to a brief fling Erin and Scott had way back when they were young TV stars. His Tuesday Facebook post got nasty though when he said, "She told me that you were tiny." Then came the not so thinly veiled threat: "Get on your knees and pray you never run into me."

Tony's angry about Scott's radio interview where he took Erin to task for using drugs. At the time, Scott thought that's what killed her, but later learned it was cancer.

Scott told us he wouldn't have been so harsh if he'd known she was battling cancer -- but he stands firm on his view of addiction.

Battle lines are drawn.

United Airlines Would-Be World's Biggest Rabbit Dies Onboard Flight to U.S.

4/25/2017 5:52 PM PDT

United Airlines is catching more flak this week after a rabbit set to become the world's biggest bunny died on-board one of its flights.

The 3-foot bunny named Simon reportedly died Monday night on a United flight from Heathrow to O'Hare -- yes, really.

The breeder, Annette Edwards, says Simon was healthy before boarding ... but was found dead in the plane's cargo hold upon landing. It was reportedly on its way to a new celeb owner in the States.

The rabbits cost around $6,400 to raise, and Edwards sells them for $640 a pop. Simon, who was 10 months old, was expected to surpass his 4-foot, 4-inch dad  ... and snag the record for world's biggest.

United -- which is already dealing with a PR nightmare -- reportedly said it was saddened to hear this news and that it's trying to determine why Simon died.

Ted Cruz El Chapo Should Pay For the Wall Let's Make it a Law!

4/25/2017 5:14 PM PDT

Ted Cruz has the perfect solution on how to pay for Donald Trump's border wall ... pass a law to use El Chapo's billions and loot from other lords to underwrite construction.

The Texas senator introduced a new bill Tuesday called the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act -- aka the EL CHAPO Act ... which does just that.

The bill would allow the U.S. to use all cash forfeited by drug lords to pay for the wall and border security.

According to Ted ... the U.S. is already gunning for more than $14 billion in drug money and other profits that the Mexican drug lords collected, and Cruz says that will go a long way toward the estimated $20 plus billion in construction costs.

The government is on the verge of shutting down this week, in part because of funding for the border wall project. Looks like Ted's trying to get creative with a solution.

Pro Golfer Matt Goggin United Went All Dao On My Clubs!

4/25/2017 4:35 PM PDT
Breaking News

Matt Goggin wants justice for his broken golf clubs -- he's just afraid to demand it from United Airlines for fear of getting manhandled a la Dr. David Dao.

The Australian pro golfer's pissed off about 3 of his clubs getting snapped at the head. As he put it ... it's the first time in more than 20 years his gear got destroyed in flight.

Naturally, Goggin was looking to give someone an earful -- if only he had flown a different airline. He tweeted, "I was going to complain but I must admit I'm a little intimidated by @united."

He's obviously referring to the infamous video of Dao getting jacked up.

Lucky for Matt, TaylorMade Golf responded and promised to replace the clubs. As for United? Maybe they've just got bigger fish to fry.

'Silicon Valley' Star I'm Not Sarah, But Thanks for the Penis Pic, Dude!

4/25/2017 3:32 PM PDT

"Silicon Valley" star Amanda Crew got an eyeful of some guy's junk when she checked her text messages ... but her cool chick reaction made his day.

Amanda says the strange schlong came in the middle of a string of texts from a guy who thought he was texting someone named Sarah. He started, "Hey sexy girl. Can't wait to see you again."

Then came the pecker shot. Amanda let him down easily, and then posted the full exchange. She was nice enough to remove his phallus though.

The lesson: beware wrong numbers while sexting. Ya probably won't be as lucky as this guy.

Katherine Jackson Elder Abuse Case Against Trent Thrown Out

4/25/2017 3:16 PM PDT
Breaking News

Katherine Jackson just got shot down by a judge in her bid to get a restraining order against nephew Trent Jackson on grounds he abused her and stole from her.

The judge just booted the case after Katherine's lawyers essentially threw themselves at the mercy of the court, claiming their client was unprepared to go forward. The lawyers asked the judge if the case could be dismissed "without prejudice," meaning it could be refiled. The lawyers also said Katherine never realized this would turn into a full-blown trial. 

The judge said today was judgment day, and if she wasn't ready it's case closed forever.

What's interesting ... Katherine has been MIA from almost everyone -- she hasn't even seen her grandchildren since January and she's the one with legal guardianship.

Trent and other members of the family believe Katherine is being manipulated by some of Michael's brothers and sisters so they could gain some control over the MJ Estate.  

Katherine filed a declaration for the temporary restraining order in which she made shocking claims against Trent, but Trent and others think she had no idea what she was signing if she signed at all.

Scott Baio Backlash Over My Erin/Drugs Comments Fueled Purely by Trump Haters

4/25/2017 2:28 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Baio thinks much of the backlash he's gotten for his comments about Erin Moran's drug issues is driven by his ties to Donald Trump.

Scott told us liberals have been attacking him for linking his former co-star's death to a drug overdose during a radio interview -- but says his haters' political biases are seeping through.

The attacks don't appear to faze him though. Although it turns out Erin died from cancer -- and not substance abuse problems -- he says it doesn't change his strong feelings about the dangers of drugs.

Katt Williams Assault with a Deadly Weapon Case Dismissed

4/25/2017 2:26 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Katt Williams just got a big break -- the result of a plea deal -- his felony assault with a deadly weapon case has been dismissed.

Katt's lawyer, Shawn Holley, was in court Tuesday when the judge threw out the case involving an altercation at The Comedy Store in West Hollywood back in 2014, when Katt drew a gun on a guy after his set. The alleged victim was someone trying to film Katt for a documentary.

Turns out ... the dismissal is tied to a plea deal Katt struck last week, when he pled no contest to robbery in an unrelated case. You may recall ... around the same time as The Comedy Store incident, Katt was in Beverly Hills with Suge Knight when a photog tried taking pics of Suge's son.

Katt grabbed the camera from the photog, then almost immediately handed it over to one of Suge's bodyguards so he could remove the memory card.

The comedian pled no contest to the robbery and received 3 years probation and was ordered to attend 54 weeks of anger management.

So, cases closed.

Barack Obama $400k Fee for Wall Street Speech ... Hypocrisy?

4/25/2017 2:19 PM PDT
Breaking News

Barack Obama's getting in bed with Wall Street ... he's reportedly getting $400,000 to address a group of people he once referred to as "fat cats."

Obama's signed on to be the keynote speaker at a Wall Street health care conference run by Cantor Fitzgerald, and the news has the former president's critics chomping at the bit. He's made no secret of his disdain for some Wall Street bankers.

FOX Business says Obama's signed on the dotted line, but final details are still being ironed out before a formal announcement.

Pretty sweet gig though ... that's an entire year of POTUS salary in a single day. It's also double what Hillary Clinton previously commanded on the speech circuit.

Malia Obama Fan Who Popped Question Off The Hook in Arrest

4/25/2017 1:31 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Malia Obama's obsessed fan kept his distance from her, and that's saving his ass from being charged with a crime ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops were considering booking Jair Nilton Cardoso for stalking and harassment, but ultimately decided his failed attempts to get close to the former first daughter didn't rise to the level of a crime.

As we reported ... the 30-year-old man was detained after showing up to Malia's Weinstein Company office with a sign that read, "Will you marry me?". We're told cops say Cardoso never posed a verbal or physical threat because he never got any closer than standing outside the office.

We're told Cardoso was taken to a NYC hospital for psychiatric evaluation.

EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Bregoli says there is one obvious reason she's NOT the girl who's getting beat to a pulp in a viral video ... and it's all about the victim's butt.

It's not hard to understand the confusion -- Danielle and the punching bag in the video do look extremely similar. It's unclear where the video was shot, but fact is "Cash Me Outside" has been here in Los Angeles.

We got her at LAX, and she explained why that ain't her getting dragged in the vid. As she puts it, size matters when you're talking booty and bodyguards.

Meanwhile, Danielle's look-alike is gonna have a serious headache ...
