Guess Who This Cool Kid Turned Into!

Corey J Shocking Vid of Kid Rapper's Arrest ... Busted For Selling CDs

10/18/2018 10:39 AM PDT

This video of 12-year-old rapper Corey J -- who's appeared on 'Ellen' -- getting manhandled and arrested in a Georgia mall is triggering controversy, and an internal police investigation. 

The clip shows Corey with his arm locked in the officer's grip as they argue about why he's getting hauled off to jail -- for allegedly selling CDs -- and that's when Corey's aunt jumped in and a scuffle broke out. 

During the Oct. 6 incident in Cumberland, GA ... the cop looked surprised when Corey said he's only 12, but it didn't stop the officer threatening to arrest him. 

Corey and his aunt both got arrested and charged with felony obstruction.

Corey claims the officer was treating him like a rag doll, and posted a pic of what appears to be his bruised arm. 

You might recognize Corey J from last year's appearance on 'Ellen' ... when he talked about his budding rap career.

Cops say they'd previously warned Corey twice about selling his CDs in the mall, but he says he was just there to meet up with other artists when mall security alerted police. 

Cobb County police chief Mike Register says he's aware of complaints and his department is launching an internal probe.

'Family Matters' Star Darius McCrary Denies Child Abuse ... My Ex 'Concocted' Story

10/16/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Family Matters" star Darius McCrary says it's absurd to think he dislocated his 2-year-old daughter's arm -- as his estranged wife claims -- and suggests his daughter was coached into faking the injury. 

We spoke to Darius after his estranged wife, Tammy Brawner, filed docs claiming he dislocated little Zoey's arm in March 2018 while attempting to take her to the bathroom. Zoey was reportedly diagnosed with Nursemaid’s Elbow ... a common childhood injury where the child's elbow partially dislocates.

She believes Darius is to blame, but he told us all that happened when he picked up Zoey at the time and she said, "Ow." He acknowledges Tammy took Zoey to a hospital, but says he saw evidence she was fine ... and revealed his conspiracy theory about his ex.

DJ Khaled Son's 2nd Bday Party's a Home Run ... Carnival at Marlins Park!!!

10/13/2018 3:21 PM PDT

DJ Khaled could have just reserved a section at Chuck E. Cheese's for his son's 2nd birthday party, but you know he's gotta be the best ... so he threw a bash at Major League Baseball field instead.

Khaled's son, Asahd, will turn 2 next week ... but dad got the celebrating started early by hosting a carnival in his honor Saturday at Marlins Park in Miami. The stadium was available because ... the Marlins clearly aren't playing October baseball these days.

Among the attractions at the party are a carousel, a chair swing ride ... and a frickin' Ferris wheel. Asahd was gifted his own set of baller wheels, too ... a red mini LaFerrari from CYBEX and TOT Living by Haute Living.

The bday bash also served as the launch for Khaled's We the Best Foundation to help kids worldwide, and thousands were donated to his organization at the event ... including $100k from Derek Jeter and the Marlins!

Pretty impressive for Khaled to one-up Asahd's first birthday party ... where Diddy performed at LIV nightclub.

Can't wait to see what he's got in store for when the kid turns 3.

EXCLUSIVE

Britney Spears is about to drive her die-hard fans 'Crazy' with a super rare piece of memorabilia from when she was just 7 years old ... but already handing out autographs.

The folks over at Heritage Auctions are auctioning off a 1989 yearbook from Parklane Academy in McComb, Mississippi which features Brit's Jane Hancock. Important to note, she was only a first grader ... so don't expect some fancy cursive signature.

It's straight up block letters, but still ... it's Britney, bitch.

The yearbook is more than 60 pages and includes two pictures of the pop star-to-be.

The autograph, such as it is, is believed to be the earliest ever from Brit. Of course, just 4 years later she started her climb to stardom on the 'Mickey Mouse Club.' 

Britney fans can flock to Heritage Auction's site and make their bids beginning Oct. 18. The site expects to snag upwards of $10k for the yearbook.

Rescued Thai Soccer Team Bring On Hollywood!

10/10/2018 1:41 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Thai boys soccer team rescued from flooded caves back in July were stoked when they landed in Los Angeles today ... and it's all because they're about to go Hollywood!!!

TMZ Sports cameras were rolling as the 12 boys -- along with their coaches and other chaperones -- walked through the airport to their waiting bus ... smiling and throwing up the peace sign. 

The team -- aka the Wild Boars -- were decked out in their spiffy Adidas uniforms and carrying their equipment in cool new travel bags. They just played a friendly game in Argentina against another youth squad as part of the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics opening ceremony. 

But now, it's time for some R&R in L.A. -- the team is scheduled to hit up Universal Studios in the coming days where they'll get to experience everything from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to King Kong 360 3-D. 

Of course, it's nothing like surviving over 2 weeks in a crazy network of caves -- but they'll probably dig it. 

So, why the global trip? 

The head of the Thai Olympic Delegation explained it this way -- "During the rescue operation so many people from around the world came to Thailand and collaborated to rescue them. They feel that they owe a debt to everyone."

Enjoy the trip!

Chris Martin & Dakota Johnson Throw Gender Reveal Party ... But, Rep Says Not Their Baby

10/8/2018 12:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

12:50 PM PT -- Dakota's rep tells us she is NOT pregnant, and they were just throwing a birthday party. The rep did not say what the deal was with the pink and blue balloons.

Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson are having a baby, and the timing of their gender reveal party is pretty interesting ... considering what Chris' ex just celebrated.

Chris and Dakota, who've been dating for about a year, had a party at his place on Sunday, and photos and video from the event make it clear what they were celebrating.

Blue and pink balloons were tied down in arches ... as their celeb friends arrived. Dakota's folks -- Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson -- walked in, along with Sean Penn and Julia Roberts.

Looks like Don was last to arrive ... because about 10 minutes after he got there, the string of blue balloons were released into the sky. So, all signs point to them having a boy, unless someone screwed up the release.

Chris' big baby news came one week after Gwyneth Paltrow tied the knot with her new guy, Brad Falchuk. Chris didn't attend their wedding ... he was performing at the Global Citizen Festival in NYC, and Dakota was there with him.

Interesting, when Dakota walked onstage she was wearing a very baggy outfit and overcoat. Little did we know, she had a baby on board.

Kanye West & Chance the Rapper Daddy Day Care 2 Starring Saint and Kensli at the Sugar Factory!!!

10/7/2018 12:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West and Chance the Rapper are dads about town in Chicago right now -- ready to turn up on a moment's notice ... with their two toddlers nearby to make it even sweeter.

Ye was back in Chicago this weekend, and on Saturday, he took his son, Saint, back to the famous Sugar Factory where he was also joined by Chance and his own daughter, Kensli. Looks like the party was well underway by the time Chano showed ... can ya tell?

In this clip, obtained by TMZ, you see Kanye dancing in his private booth with a decently sized audience around him, clapping to some music. Kanye stands up on the cushion, and then suddenly Chance emerges from the crowd with Kensli in his arms. 

Seems Kanye really wanted his Chitown pal to join him onstage on-table ... before quickly realizing he might've been a little too close to the sparklers, and possibly off balance.

Chance eventually indulged Ye and got on up there with Kensli in his arms -- Ye did the same with Saint. Yeah, these two are giving Eddie Murphy and Jeff Garlin a run for their money.

'Ray Donovan' Actor Pooch Hall Dangerously Recorded His Kids WHILE He Was Driving

10/7/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Ray Donovan" actor Marion "Pooch" Hall put his kids in danger with some questionable behavior behind the wheel ... months before his shocking DUI arrest.

We did some digging and found a video Hall recorded and posted May 11 on Instagram. It shows him joking around with his boys in the backseat and recording them ... but he's doing it WHILE he's driving. The footage is even more unsettling on the heels of Hall's DUI.

TMZ broke the story ... Hall was busted Wednesday night in Burbank, CA when he had his 2-year-old son on his lap, and at the wheel, when he hit 2 parked cars. Cops say Hall's BAC was .25 ... more than 3 times the limit. Witnesses were horrified to see Pooch's child crying in the front seat while the child's car seat was laying uninstalled in the back seat.

In the IG video, you can see one of his kids standing in the back seat clearly not wearing a seat belt. His toddler son is at least in a car seat this time. Hall's older daughter is in the passenger seat. It only looks like she's in the driver's seat because the phone's selfie mode flips the image.

As we first reported ... DCFS opened an investigation after the DUI arrest.
