Delta Pilot Hit Passenger to Release Choke Hold

4/30/2017 9:01 AM PDT

The Delta pilot who smacked a passenger and then walked away delivered the punch to get the woman to release a choke hold she had on the woman she was fighting ... at least that's what the airline concluded.

When you watch the video, it's confusing. It appears the pilot almost gratuitously delivers the punch out of frustration and then walks away. But a Delta official tells TMZ the video doesn't show everything, and based on interviews with the pilot, eyewitnesses and information from cops ... the pilot saw the woman in question choking out the other woman. And the pilot did what he could to release the dangerous grip.

As we reported ... the pilot was taken off duty after the incident but put back on the schedule after the airline concluded he did nothing wrong.

Neither of the women wanted to press charges against anyone. 

'Godfather' Cast & Crew The Family Reunites ... Don Corleone Insisted

4/30/2017 12:59 PM PDT

Robert De Niro made his team at Tribeca an offer they couldn't refuse ... him, Al Pacino and the rest of "The Godfather" cast and crew on one stage together again.

Bob, Al, Robert Duvall, James Caan, Diane KeatonTalia Shire and even Francis Ford Coppola himself reunited Saturday for the closing night of the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC. 

De Niro got the panel together after a back-to-back screening of Part 1 & 2 of the classic mobster movies. He runs the festival after all ... so it's not like anyone was gonna tell him no. It's also the 45th anniversary of Part 1. 

The old cast dished on stuff that went down behind the scenes of the movies -- like the cat that wandered onto Marlon Brando's lap ... or Al and Diane getting loaded after the wedding scene ... or everyone mooning each other at one point on set. Oh, and Paramount's reluctance to cast Al, of course. 

As lovely as it might have been to see these stars come together for 2 cinematic gems, the night proved long. Their whole event wrapped 9 hours later. 

Leave the double feature ... take the Q&A. 

Kim Kardashian Black Magic Woman

4/30/2017 10:25 AM PDT

Kim Kardashian had her spell on just about everyone who saw her in the 90210 Saturday night -- even in all black ... you couldn't miss her.

Kim was leaving a friend's party in Bev Hills where she was wearing a hugging body suit, jeans and knee-high boots ... with a coat that was almost half on. 

She just got home from a vacay in Mexico with Kourtney and some friends, where she was showing off a lot more of her body. Here, she's toned it down -- maybe even doing a different take on the flu look she pulled off so well just a couple weeks ago.

Whatever the outfit ... Kim definitely has the magic touch. Take it away, Carlos.

Chrissy Teigen Oh, Baby ... Luna

4/30/2017 11:45 AM PDT

Chrissy Teigen is one hot mama ... which her baby, Luna, reminds us of very well here.

Chrissy went shopping Saturday with her super-duper cute 1-year-old daughter in New York City. Naturally, Chrissy was showing plenty of cleavage in her model mom outfit. 

She's told us her boobs have good days and (allegedly) bad ones, too. Looks like this day was one of the good ones ... for us, at least.

We're sure John would agree. Kendrick in the back seems to as well.

Jamie Lynn Spears Maddie's 100% OK But Don't Ask About ATV

4/30/2017 10:29 AM PDT

Jamie Lynn Spears is happy to give an update on her daughter's health after an almost fatal incident on an ATV earlier this year -- but don't ask if she'll ride again.

We got Jamie leaving L.A. Sunday after joining Britney at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards Saturday night. She told us her 8-year-old daughter, Maddie, is 100% after having to be put on a ventilator in February from an ATV accident.

But watch how she reacts to being asked if Maddie will get back on one of the vehicles that nearly killed her ... not nearly as chatty. 

We broke the story ... Maddie's ATV flipped into a pond where she was trapped and submerged for several minutes. She was on a ventilator for at least a day. 

Apparently, some things are off limits for Jamie when it comes to her kid.

Chad Johnson Cops Gave Me a Lift But Dumped Me at a Gas Station!!!

Exclusive Details

Chad Johnson was lucky to run into a highway patrol officer who was kind enough to give him a lift when his car blew a tire ... but duty called, and Chad was unceremoniously kicked to the curb.

Chad tells TMZ Sports he was driving home from a football game in Miami when he blew a tire. The former Bengals star didn't have a spare, so the whip had to be towed.  An officer offered to take him home, and it actually looked pretty awesome for a while -- Chad in the back seat ... vibing out to Kanye.

But then ... a dispatcher sounded the alarm ... someone committed a 187 -- murder -- and the officer had to book it. So he dropped Chad off at a gas station.

He posted the video on Snapchat but didn't explain the circumstances. Mystery solved.

Celebrity Scramble Guess Who!

Hiding in this messy mug is a Hollywood it girl ... give it all you got as you hunt through the silly snap and attempt to figure out the wispy woman in the imperfect pic.

Kendrick Lamar Takes Over For The Weeknd ... On L.A. Riot's 25th Anniversary

4/30/2017 7:40 AM PDT

Kendrick Lamar crashed The Weeknd's L.A. concert ... on a night that marked a seminal moment in history for the City of Angels.

Abel brought out K-Dot Saturday night for his show at The Forum in L.A., and what we imagine was supposed to be a song or 2 turned out to be a mini set for the Compton rapper.

Kendrick did his and The Weeknd's collab song "Sidewalks", but then he jumped right into "HUMBLE." ... on the night of the 25th anniversary of the L.A. Riots no less. 

Abel clearly wasn't about to interrupt ... Kendrick was on a roll. 

Kylie Jenner Giving Travis Goosebumps ... For University Gig

Exclusive Details

Travis Scott might have been rocking a sweater ahead of his show Saturday night ... but that doesn't mean Kylie Jenner wasn't giving him goosebumps underneath.

Kylie was seen tagging along with Travis at his gig at Bentley University just outside of Boston, where she was clinging to her new man at the hip.

We're told the couple went to a Boston club called Bijou afterward, and were together a majority of the time except for when Travis was on stage performing.

He didn't mention her during the set ... but this picture's worth a thousand words. So is this one.

Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner It's Working Out

4/30/2017 9:05 AM PDT

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are working out as a couple ... literally.

Paps spotted the pair holding hands as they left a gym sesh together Saturday in the East Village in NYC. As you can see by their workout gear ... things are getting physical between them.

We already know Joe's super athletic -- he boxes and whatnot in his spare time. Looks like he's getting Sophie into that ultra fit life too.

Plus, she's already made it clear Joe's giving her that good good. So again ... get it, Sophie!

Stephen Belafonte Extortion Audio Woman Threatens, 'I'll Take You Down!'

4/30/2017 1:00 AM PDT

Stephen Belafonte gave the LAPD an audiotape in which you hear a woman -- whom he says is his baby mama -- try and extort him for a million bucks, and TMZ has obtained the audio.

Belafonte claims the woman on the phone is Nicole Contrereas. They were together for 6 years and have a 12-year-old daughter named Giselle. Contreras tells us she's not the woman on the tape.

You hear the woman in the call -- recorded March 20 -- tell Belafonte, "I'm gonna take you down" unless he pays her $500,000. She later ups the demand to $1 million.

She says Mel B's people asked her to tell her story, which says is "so ugly."

The woman, who sounds intoxicated, refers to Giselle and monthly payments Belafonte deposits in her account.

She rambles on, saying she will "bury" Belafonte.

The LAPD has the audio and is conducting an extortion investigation. 

Nicole tells us, "This audio is clearly not me. Stephen is falsifying stories because I have told the press the truth."

4/30/2017 12:50 AM PDT

Jesse Williams and his estranged wife are carrying on the recent tradition of civilized divorces, for the sake of their kids.

Sources close to Williams tell us ... he and Aryn Drake-Lee have been co-parenting their young son and daughter for months since officially separating. Jesse moved out of the family house several weeks ago but he's maintained regular contact with their children.

There was a lapse when Jesse recently completed a video game in Paris but that aside, he's been in L.A. filming "Grey's Anatomy." He sees his kids a few times every week. Most important ... we're told Aryn has been more than accommodating.

Sources close to Aryn tell us Jesse still has a lot of his belongings at their house ... and has come and gone as he pleases, so in a way he's moved but he hasn't.

As we reported ... Jesse is seeking joint custody of their 3-year-old and 1-year-old. Aryn has not filed a response to the divorce. 

The Chainsmokers Crash Chi-Town Senior Prom

4/30/2017 6:58 AM PDT

The Chainsmokers gave a class of seniors in Chicago a gigantic surprise when the boyz crashed their prom.

The DJ'ing duo played a surprise set Saturday night for Chi-Town's Huntley High School at  at the Hyatt Regency hotel, right after their concert across the street at the Allstate Arena.

Turns out the performance was pre-planned -- and free if you can believe it. Some kid from the school had contacted their management a couple weeks before to schedule the "impromptu" show.  Most of the kids at the prom had no idea they would show.

However it came to be ... they rocked the house.
