Breaking News

Anthony Bourdain had no narcotics in his system when he died ... this according to French investigators.

As we reported ... the beloved chef died by suicide earlier this month after he was found hanging in a hotel bathroom in France. It was initially unclear if he had ingested any narcotics before his suicide, but The New York Times says a French official has ruled that out.

The report says the only thing found in his body was a trace of a non-narcotic medicine in a therapeutic dose. Anthony was in a small village in France, filming his show, 'Parts Unknown,' when he was found dead. He was 61.

6/22/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

XXXTentacion's legion of fans might be shocked by the baby news his mom dropped, but it wouldn't have been a surprise to him -- he knew weeks ago.

Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ ... X's girlfriend -- whom he'd been dating for months -- is the mystery baby mama. We're told the ultrasound photo shared by X's mother, Cleopatra Bernard, is definitely the girlfriend's. 

As we reported ... Cleopatra posted the sonogram with the caption, "He left us a final gift."

Based on the womb snapshot, taken April 23, X's gf was just over 8 weeks along back then -- so, she's about 4 months pregnant now. That also means the due date is somewhere around mid-November.

We're told the gf is definitely not his ex, Geneva -- and the only reason X hadn't revealed the news is because he wanted her to have a stress-free pregnancy.

Breaking News

FOX News analyst Dr. Charles Krauthammer has died after a battle with terminal cancer.

Krauthammer had a cancerous tumor removed from his abdomen about 10 months ago. Doctors thought the surgery had been successful, but then he was told the cancer returned and he only had a few weeks to live. He revealed the diagnosis in an open letter earlier this month in the Washington Post, where he was a contributor.

Charles -- who was paralyzed in a diving accident while in medical school -- won the Pulitzer for Commentary for his Washington Post columns in 1987. His book, "Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics,” was also a New York Times best seller. In recent years, he'd appeared on FOX News’ “Special Report with Bret Baier” as a panelist. 

FOX News CEO Suzanne Scott said in a statement, “Charles was a guiding voice throughout his time with FOX News and we were incredibly fortunate to showcase his extraordinary talent on our programs. He was an inspiration to all of us and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his beloved wife Robyn and his son Daniel."

The network says it will air a special in his honor on Friday night.

Despite the grim prognosis from doctors, Charles still wrote in his letter, "It was a wonderful life."

He was 68.

XXXTentacion may have had a child on the way at the time of his murder ... at least that's what his mom is hinting.

X's mother, Cleopatra Bernard, just posted a photo of an ultrasound with the caption, "He left us a final gift." While it's hard to imagine the photo would mean anything other than the rapper had a child on the way, Cleo doesn't provide any further detail.

TMZ broke the story, X was murdered in South Florida Monday after two armed men approached his car, shooting him in broad daylight.

Cops arrested one man in connection to the killing Wednesday night, and we've learned as many as 2 more suspects could still be arrested.

XXXTentacion's Murder Detectives Key on Rapper Soldier Kidd's Gun Pic

6/21/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

5:30 AM PT -- Police have arrested Dedrick D. Williams for the murder of XXXTentacion. Broward County Sheriff's Dept. took Williams into custody Wednesday evening.

Investigators working on XXXTentacion's murder seem to be homing in on a Florida rapper who posted a pic of himself packing heat Monday, not far from the crime scene.

Soldier Kidd's been widely accused online of having possible involvement in XXX's shooting death -- mostly due to a photo of himself at Hook Fish & Chicken restaurant, which is 7 minutes from where X was killed.

In the pic, you clearly see a handgun in Kidd's lap, right next to his food. It was posted within an hour of X's shooting.

We're told detectives went to Hook Fish & Chicken late Monday to collect surveillance footage -- specifically of the time Soldier Kidd was there.

There's more -- according to the dispatch audio from the shooting, one of the 2 armed men was wearing a red mask. Kidd shared a photo of himself and a friend with a red mask in the front seat of his car.

The "Triple X" isn't necessarily a reference to XXXTentacion ... since Kidd recorded a mixtape with that title.

We're told cops have also collected security footage from the motorcycle shop where the shooting went down. Police haven't named any suspects, and Soldier Kidd has denied any involvement.

As we reported ... XXXTentacion was shot in the neck during an alleged robbery, and died instantly, according to a witness on the scene.
