Mel B I'm So Extra ... terrestrial

3/22/2018 5:31 PM PDT

Mel B's all about putting a scare into the fashion world these days ... this time with a full-body outfit from some time in the distant future.

The Spice Girls singer was on her way to judge "America's Got Talent" in rainy Pasadena Thursday when she was spotted in an out-of-this-world hot pink and blue jumpsuit -- equipped with a hood. She's also rocking leather high heels ... from Rihanna's Fenty Puma line.

They don't really match ... but she doesn't seem to care.

You may recall ... Mel was out and about in another eye-popping getup Tuesday that was even more Scary Spice, but it might have been to promote her group's reunion tour later this year.

No clue what she's promoting this time, though.

'AGT' Sued For Wrongful Death Of Wheelchair-Bound Woman

3/7/2018 3:47 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"America's Got Talent" is being sued for the wrongful death of a woman who was injured as she tried to maneuver a motorized wheelchair over cables for the show's taping ... according to the suit.

Maureen Allen was working as a volunteer at the Pasadena Convention Center in March 2017, and 'AGT' was also on the premises preparing for a taping ... according to docs, obtained by TMZ. In the suit, Maureen's estate says a large power cord protector was blocking the only disabled access ramp to the auditorium.

The estate says Maureen tried to roll over the protector, but her front wheel got caught and her scooter flipped on its side ... violently throwing her to the ground. According to the suit she suffered severe injuries to her head, arms, and hip.

She had to be hospitalized, and suffered a stroke the next day. She also had to have hip surgery and remained in declining health for several months. After 8 surgeries she was put on life support in June ... and died shortly thereafter.

The estate blames her death on the initial fall, which it claims was caused by AGT's negligence. It's suing AGT's production company ... FremantleMedia, NBCUniversal and the city of Pasadena.

Mel B I Have a Spice Girls Reunion Secret That U Really, Really Want

2/6/2018 4:41 PM PST

Mel B is so damn good at the promotion game, she's giving Spice Girls fans some serious hope for a reunion tour by dropping a few well-chosen words.

Mel B was walking out of Fred Segal Tuesday in WeHo when we asked, point-blank, if the group's hitting the road again. Of course, she's fully aware of the rumblings that started when all 5 Spices posed for a photo last week in the U.K.

Watch Mel's sly reply when we attempted to grill her -- arguably she played it perfectly.

We also asked her about the tension at her "America's Got Talent" gig ... and Queen Latifah possibly replacing her. The woman of few words definitely had one for Queen. 

'America's Got Talent' Fed up with Mel B Eyeing Queen Latifah!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Mel B's become a major thorn in the side of "America's Got Talent" producers, who now want to kick her to the curb ... and Queen Latifah's their first option to replace her.

'AGT' production sources tell TMZ ... Mel's been butting heads with people on set and producers think she comes with too much "baggage" for the amount of money the Spice Girl's getting paid. We're told the situation worsened while Mel was enmeshed in her intense divorce from Stephen Belafonte.

You'll recall ... she's feuded on camera with Simon Cowell ... tossing a drink at him, but we're told there's been even more tension behind the scenes.

We're told producers wanna replace Mel with Queen Latifah by next season. One potential hurdle is the fact QL's under contract with the FOX series, "Star."

'AGT' judge auditions begin in 5 weeks -- so, time ain't exactly on their side.

EXCLUSIVE

Jeff Dunham's got high hopes for the kid ventriloquist who won season 12 of "America's Got Talent" ... because he knows her folks want what's best for her.

The famed ventriloquist and comedian tells TMZ ... 12-year-old Darci Lynne Farmer's fantastic with her puppets, but also has fantastic parents. Jeff thinks that's vital for a child star in showbiz, and with their guidance ... Darci could be the next Shari Lewis.

As for teaming up with Darci for a ventriloquism duet ... he's down with it, but says he'll have to clean up his act a little.

Dunham also took a moment to adjust his screen for some not-so-subtle reason ... check it out.

Simon Cowell When Life Gives You Lemons...

9/20/2017 6:50 AM PDT

Dream scenario for a bunch of kids pouring cups of lemonade ... Simon Cowell rolling up in his Bronco with a bunch of dough!

Simon and girlfriend Lauren Silverman stopped at the makeshift stand which the squad set up on a corner in Beverly Hills ... pretty genius.

Going rate for a cup is usually a quarter and it looks like Simon and Lauren handed over much more than that without taking any lemonade, so it was purely a donation.

Respect the hustle.

Breaking News

New Orleans Saints long snapper and star magician Jon Dorenbos is "resting comfortably" after open-heart surgery on Tuesday -- this according to Dorenbos' former NFL coach.

Dorenbos -- who crushed it on "America's Got Talent" -- was diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm during his physical for the Saints last week ... which prompted the emergency surgery.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson gave an update on his ex-player's condition, saying, "Everything went well yesterday with surgery and he's resting comfortably."

"Just wish him and his family well, our prayers are with him and hope for a speedy recovery."

The NFL vet shared a video of his friends and family before going under the knife, saying, "Thank you to my beautiful amazing wife, my family, my friends and videos like this. This brought out some tears. I feel the love and support."

Get well soon, Jon!

AGT's Jon Dorenbos Major Heart Issue Discovered ... During NFL Physical

9/8/2017 7:44 AM PDT
Breaking News

A trade to the New Orleans Saints may have saved Jon Dorenbos' life -- because the longsnapper just learned he has a very serious heart condition that was discovered during a team physical. 

Dorenbos -- who dominated as a magician on "America's Got Talent" -- was traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Saints back in August and had to undergo a medical exam as part of the deal. 

Saints coach Sean Payton just told the media ... doctors discovered the 2-time Pro Bowl player had an aortic aneurysm that will require immediate heart surgery. 

Payton says, "It's a pretty serious condition."

Dorenbos is 37 years old -- and the news could signal the end of his NFL career -- but who cares as long as he gets healthy.

'AGT' Winner Landau Murphy Jr. Off the Hook In Dom. Violence Case ... For Now

9/7/2017 1:59 PM PDT
Breaking News

"America's Got Talent" champ Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. won't face charges at this time for allegedly hitting his baby mama with a golf club ... TMZ has learned.

The domestic violence case against the season 6 winner of 'AGT' was dismissed without prejudice Wednesday ... meaning the case could still be reopened pending further investigation and discussions with the victim.

As we reported ... Landau was arrested in July for misdemeanor domestic battery and assault after an alleged brawl with his GF at the time, and was accused of striking her under her eye with a club.

Murphy says he is no longer in a relationship with the woman, but the 2 have a child to raise and "we both want our son to realize that his parents love him."

The 'AGT' winner also says he despises domestic violence, has campaigned against it and helped raise money for its victims ... and will continue to do so.

Mel B Storms Off 'AGT' After Simon Cowell's Insult

8/23/2017 6:02 AM PDT

Mel B hurled a cup of water at fellow 'AGT' judge Simon Cowell and then stormed off the set in the middle of a live show, after he made a reference to a very sensitive subject ... her marriage.

Simon was critiquing a contestant when he began using a simile, comparing his performance to Mel B's honeymoon ... lots of anticipation, but no delivery.

That was all she wrote ... Mel B smiled at first but apparently had to be coaxed back onstage a few minutes later.

She's been dealing with a disastrous breakup with estranged hubby Stephen Belafonte, so it hit too close to home.

Simon's still got it.

'America's Got Talent' Golden Buzzer Singers Could Bank $1 Mill off Records

8/18/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Angelica Hale and Angelina Green, the 10 and 13-year-old singers who earned the coveted Golden Buzzer on "America's Got Talent" this season, are both bound for the finals and if either gal wins, they could make $1 million just off records. 

We got a hold of the contracts that detail their exclusive recording, publishing and merchandise deals with Syco, the entertainment company owned by Sony and Simon Cowell.

Here's the breakdown ... the winner gets a $100k advance off the bat for their first album. Those advances jump to $100k-$200k for the second album, $100k-$225k for the third, $100k-$250k for the fourth and $100k-$275k if there's a fifth LP made. And that doesn't even include royalties.

They won't be spending it all in one place though ... 15 percent gets stored away in a trust till they turn 18.

Mel B Insists She's Single, But ...

8/16/2017 6:54 AM PDT

Mel B wanted to tell the world she's single ... but to paraphrase Bill Clinton, "single" doesn't always mean single.

Scary Spice -- in a jumpsuit probably better fitted for an 'X-Men' premiere -- gushed over an Air Force Academy group's performance on Tuesday's live "America's Got Talent" show at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

Check it out ... Mel dished her analysis before blurting out, "And yes ... I am so happy to be single right now."

A couple of things. She's still married to estranged husband Stephen Belafonte. And, as we reported ... Mel's dating a Beverly Hills cop and is head over heels for the guy. He's with her all the time.

It's the new single.

Mel B Life Imitates Art I'm Dating a Beverly Hills Cop!!!

8/14/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B is either smitten or paying homage to baby daddy Eddie Murphy, because she's dating the guy he played in one of his iconic movies ... a Beverly Hills cop.

Sources in the know tell us she's been seeing a guy on the Beverly Hills PD for a few months.  She's moved at lightening speed ... splitting with husband Stephen only months before she started dating the officer.

They met through mutual friends.  She started dating him immediately and it took only a matter of weeks before he was staying at her home 5 - 6 nights a week.  She's nuts about him.

This is a little eerie. Our sources say one of the reasons she likes him around so much is that he carries a gun, and she's scared of estranged hubby Stephen Belafonte.  TMZ broke the story, Mel B has a restraining order against Belafonte, and one of her concerns is that she says he has a gun he's not allowed to possess because of a prior crime.

They're keeping the relationship "low key" ... both for his sake and hers.  We're told his life is "complicated."  But that hasn't stopped him, however, for showing up to tapings of "America's Got Talent" -- in plain clothes.  He has also accompanied her to a number of social engagements.

Not everyone in Mel B's life thinks it's a swell idea she's dating the guy ... partly because of him and partly because she just got out of a bad relationship.

Still ... there's something symmetrical about Mel B going for a Beverly Hills Cop.
