Texas School Shooting Suspect Was Dancing at Church ... Days Before Massacre

5/20/2018 11:26 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The student arrested for gunning down 10 people at his high school appeared to be nothing more than a church-going dancer mere days before the shooting.

TMZ has obtained video of 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis participating in a choreographed dance for his Greek Orthodox church the weekend before he allegedly shot and killed 8 of his peers and 2 teachers.

Sources connected to the event tell us the dance was part of a larger Greek festival in a town about 30 minutes away from Santa Fe, TX where he went to school. The performance was rehearsed well before showtime -- Pagourtzis was involved from the start.

Another harrowing detail ... we're told those who knew or knew of Pagourtzis never saw any signs that would indicate he would go absolutely mad.

Pagourtzis has been charged with multiple counts of capital murder and aggravated assault on a public servant after allegedly opening fire Friday at Santa Fe High School -- killing 10 and injuring many others. Cops say he used a shotgun and a revolver as weapons.

He has not entered a plea. 

Beyonce Praise Be ... I Own a Church Now!!!

5/20/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Holy lord ... Beyonce now has her very own church!

Queen Bey's the new owner of a stone structured, 7,500 sq. ft house of God in The Big Easy. The New Orleans church -- which is more than 100 years old -- was listed at $850,000 ... but it's unclear if she got a divine discount.

We're told Beyonce's church was built in the early 1900s, but has been out of commission as a place of worship for some time due to its church members passing away.

Looks like it could be revival time though ... and Beyonce shouldn't have any issues finding folks willing to get in formation and join her congregation. Her sister, Solange, lives nearby, too.

Speaking of ... a San Francisco church held the first ever "Beyonce Mass" a few weeks ago and had more than 900 people show up for it.

Imagine what the turnout would be at the actual Church of Bey.

Nikki Bella & John Cena Back Together ... At Least for a Day

5/19/2018 1:29 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Cena made the trek down to San Diego to try to win Nikki Bella back, but as we reported ... it may take more than just AAdvantage Miles.

Nikki and John were spotted together in the Mission Hills neighborhood of San Diego Saturday, strolling down the street after getting their fix of java.

John has been on a unrelenting campaign to win Nikki back ... after she broke up with him because he would not budge on the issue of having children.

Nikki told us a few days ago she now believes John has had a change of heart and would like for her to have his kids, but she says all the drama has made her question the relationship. She told us she loves John and would like things to work out, but she needs time to think.

It's overcast in Southern California, so we don't know if John commissioned a skywriting plane.

Shaq I Could've Beaten De La Hoya's Ass ... 'I Held Back'

5/20/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Golden Boy ain't gonna like this ...

Shaq says he gave Oscar De La Hoya a pass when the two men fought back in 2009 ... telling TMZ Sports he "held back" on ODLH because he didn't REALLY want to beat up his friend. 

Oscar & Diesel squared off for his old TV show, "Shaq Vs." where the big fella would go up against other pro athletes in their different sports ... with awesome results. 

De La Hoya won via decision ... but when we got O'Neal out in NYC he told our guy he basically took a dive.

"I held back 'cause he was my friend."

Not everybody got the homie treatment though ... Shaq told us he had another fight, this time with boxing great Sugar Shane Mosley where he "turned it up a little."

We found the video -- and yeah, Shaq hit Mosley with some REAL power shots and bullied him around the ring like a rag doll. 

Mosley ended up winning that fight in a 5-round decision (and hit Shaq with some power shots of his own) ... but it's clear Shaq was trying to send a message that he's no joke when it comes to fighting. 

Viral 'Hot Cop' Warns Survivor Cast Members Social Media Will Kill You!!!

5/20/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The "hot cop" who scored a spot on the new season of 'Survivor' is schooling the other contestants on what he's learned from his 15 minutes of fame by warning them to delete "anything that can bite you in the ass over social media."

TMZ has obtained an email Daniel Rengering fired off in a chain with 12 other 'Survivor' contestants where he admits to creeping on their socials and warning them to "fine-tooth comb" anything that could publicly crucify them online.

Daniel warns the "Internet is a cruel, heartless bitch" where "trolls are going to work twice that hard to tear you down, spread nasty gossip and ruin your reputation."

Daniel's seen it happen firsthand after one of the cops in the photo that made him famous was accused of posting several anti-Semitic remarks to his Facebook in 2011, so it appears Daniel's intentions aren't to gloat, but rather to warn the others.

He also adds, "If a small-town country boy like me can host on the GRAMMYs, Oscars and SAG Awards Red Carpets, from a single viral photo, you guys can turn this opportunity into so much more."

EXCLUSIVE

Saquon Barkley has a problem that only Tiger Woods can fix -- he sucks at golf. 

Well, maybe "sucks" is a strong word ... but the NY Giants stud rookie running back knows he needs a lot of help on the links and thinks Tiger is just the man for the job. 

You've probably seen the pics of Barkley on the course ... dude looks like a monster with a club -- and he's revealing his new nickname, "Thigh-ger Woods."

"I need some lessons," Barkley joked to TMZ Sports ... "I need more than some lessons!" 

There's more ... Barkley -- who just became a first-time dad -- also talked about being a parent. 

But between changing diapers and training with the Giants ... good luck finding time to golf!!!

Afroman Settles Lawsuit With Punching Victim

5/20/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Afroman won't have to go back to court for punching a woman onstage, because he's settled the lawsuit with the victim ... TMZ has learned.

The trial was set to begin Tuesday, but sources close to the case confirm that it's been taken off the calendar ... code for settlement.

Haley Byrd sued both Afroman and Kress Live, the company that owns the venue where Afroman had been performing in 2015 when Haley crashed the stage and got decked by the rapper. She suffered a concussion from the blow.

Afroman already pled guilty to assault, avoiding jail time and getting off with only anger management classes and drug testing. He had blamed the incident on the venue and its lack of security.

No word on the terms of the settlement.

5/20/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sylvester Stallone's wife is weighing in on the whole Sly vs. Hulk Hogan debate -- saying she's confident if the two ever fought, it would be "Rocky III" all over again! 

Remember, Hulk recently told us he's picking HIMSELF if the two men ever locked horns -- despite the fact Stallone's still a physical freak at 71 years old. 

So, when we saw Jennifer Flavin at LAX ... we had to get her take -- and shocker, she's picking Sly. 

"Sly's got heart," Flavin told us ... "I'm always gonna be on Team Sly."

For the record, Hulk's got the size advantage ... 6'7" and 300 lbs. 

Stallone's only reportedly 5'10" and 195-ish pounds. 

Didn't matter in "Rocky III" though ... when Balboa choked out a raging Thunderlips like a little bitch. 

Good times ...

Caitlyn Jenner Alleged 21-Year-Old GF 'Home Sweet Home' In Cait's Crib

5/19/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Caitlyn Jenner and her rumored 21-year-old girlfriend appear to have shacked up together ... and the proof is all in Jenner's bed!

Caitlyn and Sophia Hutchins -- who is also transgender -- have reportedly been an item for several months. However, earlier this week Sophia dropped a massive hint as to just how serious things between the two might actually be.

Hutchins posted a photo of herself lying on a bed with the caption, "Home. Sweet. Home." Look closely ... the bed's headboard is the exact same one Caitlyn's posted many times in the past from her Malibu home.

Sources close to the two tell us 68-year-old Jenner and Hutchins are not romantic -- just close friends -- and rumors they're about to tie the knot are total BS ... but Hutchins' pic and caption seemingly seals the deal on the fact they're at least roommates ... at least. 

Teairra Mari's Ex I Didn't Leak Sex Tape ... A Chick Did!!!

5/19/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Teairra Mari's ex-boyfriend, Akbar Abdul-Ahad, says she's pointing her finger at the wrong guy when it comes to who leaked her sex tape ... because it's not a guy at all ... it's a woman.

Akbar is being accused of hacking into Teairra's Instagram account and posting the XXX video, from which 50 Cent then grabbed a screenshot and shared with his 18 million followers. Teairra's lawyered up and is suing, claiming it's revenge porn.

But, when we spoke with Akbar he claimed he knows the culprit, a female, but wasn't naming names. He says Teairra's putting on an act because that's what she does by trade, plus he claims they were hanging out as early as last week, days before her lawsuit was filed.

Akbar says he plans to countersue for defamation of character since he was savagely attacked at a press conference.

As if the Vegas Golden Knights needed more motivation to win the Stanley Cup, now a famous Nevada brothel is sweetening the deal ... offering a massive sex victory party if they can seal the deal. 

A rep for Sheri's Ranch tells TMZ Sports ... they've noticed an uptick in business during the team's insane run -- and the girls have decided they want to show their appreciation. 

Dena -- the madam of the bordello -- says, "If the Golden Knights win, we all win. Offering the team a victory celebration at our adult resort is the least we can do."

"The victory party will involve the full complement of over two dozen gorgeous women and the entire sex menu will be available to any and all players wishing to partake of the brothel’s highly coveted erotic services -- compliments of the house."

Allissa -- one of the prostitutes -- added, "If the Knights go all the way, I’ll go all the way."

Sooo ... go Golden Knights?
