Donald Trump Jets & Choppers in Limbo

1/17/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116_trump_airplane_helicopters_getty-flickrDonald Trump has a problem on his hands ... what to do with 2 private jets and 3 helicopters.

Our Trump sources say the fate of Trump's 757, Citation X and 3 choppers are in limbo. He can't sell them because if he does it will look like he's profiting off the presidency. Likewise, he can't charter them out because it will open the door to criticism that he's getting a POTUS premium.

Trump, we're told, will not let the kids use the planes ... they fly commercial and if they choose private it's on their own dime.

And putting the aircrafts in storage poses other problems. They need to be maintained, which is a complicated and expensive process ... requiring pilots and mechanics.

POTUS problems.

Donald Trump LAPD Fears Unrest, Even Riots During Inauguration Protests

1/17/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116-inauguration-hollywoodThe LAPD will be massively out in force Friday, bracing for what they believe could be large, unruly crowds protesting the beginning of the Trump presidency.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, LAPD cops will have riot gear at the ready as they try to control the various demonstrations they are expecting.

As for how much police will tolerate ... not a lot. We're told if demonstrators try to block traffic, freeways or vandalize anything ... they'll be arrested.

And, we're told, there will be special focus on social media, which could set the direction of the protests.

There are certain locations that will get special police attention ... the Federal Building in Westwood, Hollywood and Highland and freeways.

Our sources say cops are mindful of the constitutional right of demonstrators to protest ... they just can't cross the line.

Melania Trump I'm Leaving After the Inauguration Barron's Got School!

1/17/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116-melania-barron-trump-tmz-getty-2Melania Trump will enjoy the White House for a grand total of 2 days before returning to New York City, because she has mom work to do.

Sources connected with the soon-to-be First Lady tell us, Melania wants life for her son to be as normal as possible, and that includes keeping him in school and in his daily routine.

We're told she will go back and forth from NYC to D.C. until June, when she and Barron will move full-time into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Barron will start school there in September.

As one source put it, "She takes the mom thing seriously."

Paris Jackson I Wanna Make My Dad Proud!!!

1/17/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Jackson is a grown woman, and pretty damn impressive!

We got Michael Jackson's daughter leaving LAX Monday, where she obliquely talked about her move to conquer modeling and Hollywood.

It's pretty remarkable for someone who was once shrouded in masks, hats and anything else that could hide her from public view.

As for whether Michael would be proud ... she's banking on it.

Donald Trump I Already Took My Oath for Prez ... Did It Before I Even Won!

1/17/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116-donald-trump-happy-tmzDonald Trump will be repeating himself when he takes his presidential oath this week, because he already did it ... long ago.

Trump slapped his autograph on a faux Presidential Oath of Office doc -- with the full text -- back in November of 2015 during a rally in Worcester, MA. We're told a supporter wrote it up and had him sign.

He was all smiles when he signed it ... seeming pretty confident it would all come to pass.

The gag document is now hitting the auction block with the help of Moments in Time.

Starting bid is $3,500, but the auction house is banking on 6 times that amount.

'Hollyweed' Sign Prankster Makes $68k Off Merch In 24 Hours

1/17/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116-weed-shirts-jesushandsworkThe guy who put the 420 twist on the Hollywood sign is now seeing a different kind of green by charging an arm and a leg for merch inspired by his prank.

As we previously reported, Zach Fernandez, who goes by the tag "Jesushands," turned himself into LAPD last week for making the iconic Hollywood sign read "Hollyweed." Sunday night he launched an online shop and within the first 24 hours it's already made about $68k!!!

There are only 5 items, but they don't come cheap. Average cost for a "Hollyweed" sweatshirt is about $150, while a t-shirt costs $100. Zach's also selling 100 signed and numbered photos of his handiwork ... at $1k a pop.

Zach's rep tells us he's also receiving 4-figure offers to speak at art events.

As for what he'll do with the money, we're guessing some of it will help with legal fees.

'Bachelor' Contestant Corinne Whipped Cream on the Boobs Trick ... Total Fail!!!

"The Bachelor" star/villain Corinne Olympios was at it again Monday, wearing a flasher-style trench coat while trying to seduce Nick Viall with whipped cream on her cleavage ... it didn't work at all.

Nick gets all, "I-gotta-respect-the-other-girls" on her ... totally humiliating. She was so pissed she skipped the whole rose thing.

Corinne may have a "platinum vagine" ... but still, she might wanna play a little less aggressively.

Inaugural Bishop I'm Getting Hate... But I'm Doing it for Jesus

1/16/2017 4:51 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The pastor taking part in Donald Trump's swearing-in ceremony isn't fazed by the haters, because when it comes down to it, it's an order from the Man above.

Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Great Faith Ministries International in Detroit tells TMZ ... helping with readings and giving the benediction at Friday's ceremony isn't about Democrats or Republicans.

The Bishop's pretty clear -- he's answering a calling bigger than he can imagine.

It's not the first time the Bishop's heard rumblings -- he got the same treatment when he hosted Trump at the church back in September.

Justin Bieber Troll Arrested Allegedly Extorts Young Fans Into Sending Nude Photos

1/16/2017 3:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116-bryan-asrary-mug-wm-2

A man is in custody for allegedly trolling the Internet for Justin Bieber fans, targeting young girls and strong-arming them into sending him nude photos ... or else.

Bryan Asrary allegedly found a 9-year-old girl back in 2014 who was viewing Bieber's Instagram page. Asrary direct messaged the girl and said he knew Bieber and said he could arrange a text meeting.

Asrary then pretended to be Bieber, and demanded the girl send nude photos of herself and threatened to hurt her if she refused. The girl sent nude selfies and video.

Last year Asrary allegedly contacted the girl again ... this time threatening to publish and broadcast the photos she had sent him unless she sent more. She told her mom, and the cops got involved.

According to cops, they confronted Asrary and he confessed to extorting the girl and other victims around the country into sending him nude photos.

He's facing extortion, child porn and other charges.

'Dreamgirls' Jennifer Holliday Canceled Trump Inauguration Because of Death Threats

1/16/2017 2:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0116_jennifer-holliday_tmz-2Jennifer Holliday pulled the plug on her inauguration performance because people threatened to kill her and her family ... TMZ has learned.

The "Dreamgirls" star agreed to sing at an inaugural event but did an about-face Saturday, saying she bailed because she was taking heat from the LGBT community.

But we've learned when her agent contacted the Inauguration Committee, he said the reason was death threats. We're told the LGBT concerns were not even mentioned.

A rep for Holliday told TMZ Monday ... both the death threats and the LGBT reaction were factors in her decision.

The rep tells us, "It was all of those things. She wasn’t scared to perform. She didn’t want to put her family at risk based on the death threats and she also didn’t want to offend the LGBT community which was especially upset that a past ally would perform on a program with President-Elect Donald Trump."

You may recall ... Trump's people said she was a lock late last week, but then her management team came out and said Trump's people jumped the gun ... that she was merely considering the offer. That doesn't square with the fact that Holliday herself said Friday she was fully on board.

We don't know if the people who made the threats identified themselves or any group with which they were affiliated.

A rep for the singer tells us her primary concern was the safety of her family.

Obamas On the Move

1/16/2017 1:07 PM PST

0116-obamas-moving-van-outside-house-TWITTER-02The president and his family are just like us ... schlepping boxes when you move from one house to another.

The Obamas are packin' up and moving boxes from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. to their new rental digs near Georgetown.

They've got some art (no, not like the portrait of George Washington) and other stuff.

They're headed to Palm Springs Friday, so by the time they get back 2 weeks after the inauguration, everything should be in place.
