Shia LaBeouf Trump Protest Cam Back Up & Running New Mexico Cops Check In

2/20/2017 10:01 AM PST
Exclusive Details

0220-shia-labeouf-new-divide-us-camera-FACEBOOK-01Shia LaBeouf's back in the Donald Trump protest biz after turning on his webcam in Albuquerque ... where cops are NOT anticipating the kinda violence the display sparked in NYC.

APD tells us officers checked in with Shia on Sunday to let him know they would protect his First Amendment rights, but they wouldn't assign any special patrols for the display ... as NYPD did last month.

Shia and his partners, artists Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner, reopened their "He will not divide us" protest Saturday -- the cam is now perched on The Historic El Rey Theater. It's near a downtown police station, so cops say they'd be able to react quickly IF anything happens.

So far, doesn't seem like this will be the lightning rod it was when it shut down 10 days ago -- people are much more laid back, even while protesting, in New Mexico.

Exclusive Details

Openly gay boxer Yusaf Mack unleashed a barber shop beatdown -- attacking a man he claims has been harassing him online over his sexual orientation.

TMZ Sports confirmed paramedics were called to the L A Clippers shop in Philadelphia Saturday evening ... after Mack wailed on the man in front of customers and employees.

Witnesses tell us Mack attacked the dude while the victim's head was in a sink in the middle of a wash. 

Mack tells us he got sick and tired of the online harassment and decided to confront the guy face-to-face. Mack is unapologetic and says the guy got what he deserved.

We also reached out to the victim who didn't want to talk ... but has since issued several homophobic statements on his Facebook page, including:

"I rather have a video of some beating me up then a video of someone seeing me take a d*** up my a** any day."

The man says he will retaliate against Mack ... "Me and him gonna fight again."

Mack says he's not scared.

Police say the alleged victim had scratches and bruising on her face. Law enforcement sources tell us Trent was cooperative.

Richardson was taken into custody on a 3rd degree domestic violence charge. Bail was set at $1,000.

Lil Wayne & Birdman Toasting Cash Money in NOLA ... Separately, Of Course

2/17/2017 12:30 AM PST
Exclusive Details

0216-lil-wayne-birdman-tmz-02Lil Wayne and Birdman will both be in New Orleans, just minutes away from each other as they both toast Cash Money Records -- but there's almost ZERO chance they'll cross paths.

Weezy and Birdman will be in NOLA -- where it's also NBA All-Star Weekend -- to celebrate Cash Money's 20th anniversary. Lil Wayne will be at Masquerade Nightclub, while Birdman's hitting up several venues that are mere blocks away ... including the House of Blues.

Our Cash Money sources say they'll both be showing love for their label, but Wayne's done way too much trash-talking to share a stage with Birdman.

Wayne will hook up with the Hot Boys though -- performing with Mannie Fresh, Turk and Juvenile. We're told Mannie plans to pull double duty, and rendezvous with Birdman too at a different club.

Drama ... like any family reunion.

Donald Trump I'm No Wedding Crasher!! Check the Guest List

Exclusive Details

0213_trump_bride_groom_@kerrytownsendDonald Trump isn't Vince Vaughn ... or Owen Wilson ... he's a guy with a legit wedding invite who showed up to honor a bride and groom he knows very well.

Newlyweds Carl Henry Lindner IV and Vanessa Jane Falk tell TMZ ... Vanessa's parents have been members at Mar-a-Lago for years, and her dad personally invited President Trump to their wedding last weekend. Trump told him he'd do his best to make an appearance ... if he was in town.

The couple says they didn't expect the prez to show, but lo and behold he was in town with Japanese PM Shinzo Abe ... who came along for the party, but only after they'd dealt with the North Korea crisis. We're told the world leaders rolled up in the presidential limo while the wedding party was taking pics. Great timing.

Carl and Vanessa say the prez hung out for about 30 minutes and even made a speech. 

Lindner's family used to be majority owner of the Chiquita banana brand, and his dad is co-CEO of American Financial Group -- so yeah ... they've got Trump-esque pockets too.

Justin Bieber made nice with a bunch of cops this weekend by getting 'em hopped up on caffeine.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Biebs took his Lambo for a coffee run Saturday night in Mission Viejo, and happened to show up as a few Orange County Sheriff deputies were waiting too. We're told Justin volunteered to cover their orders.

When even a few more deputies came in -- and happened to be JB fans -- he kept the goodwill going with selfies. Clearly, that photo ban doesn't apply to everyone. Don't worry, the baristas made out too with a $10 tip, we're told.

They chatted for about 15 minutes before Justin bolted ... at posted speed limits, we're sure.

0213-lil-yachty-grammys-grill-INSTAGRAM-02Lil Yachty paid more to put a fresh grill in his mouth on Grammy night than most women spend on designer gowns for the event.

Icebox Diamonds & Watches tells us Yachty reached out last Tuesday and requested a grill to match his vibrant personality. That's exactly what he got. We're told each tooth is a different jewel -- white, blue and yellow diamonds, red rubies, and green emeralds.

It was $35,000 for the pair of grills ... and yes, that includes delivery. Icebox says a rep flew to L.A. on Sunday to hand off the rainbow-colored grill to Yachty just a few hours before the show.

He was nominated for Best Rap/Sung Performance but lost to Drake.

It wasn't a Grammy, but he still got some nice hardware out of the evening.

edgerrin-james-strip-club-photos-launchThere's a brand new boss in the Miami strip club scene ... ex-NFL star Edgerrin James

TMZ Sports has learned the 4-time Pro Bowler is launching "One" -- a brand new upscale booty club. Our sources say James is the sole owner. 

James has been running "soft openings" to prepare for the official launch -- and has had a bunch of his famous friends (including Clinton Portis and Luther Campbell) inside the joint to check it out. 

The strip club biz is super competitive in Miami -- but Edge is a god in the city and happens to be extremely well-connected. If anyone has a shot to break through, it's him.

0210-im-with-oakley-tshirt

Ex-NY Knicks player Chris Smith -- the younger brother of J.R. Smith -- has taken Charles Oakley's side in the NBA legend's war with the team ... releasing an "I'm With Oakley" shirt.

Chris is a co-owner of New Generation Management (along with Daniel Hazan) -- the same company that did the famous J.R. Smith tattoo shirt.

By the way, we also spoke with Fresh Brewed Tees -- the website selling the shirt -- and they told us Oakley is getting paid in the deal ... a flat rate. Unclear how much he's actually making.

Madonna Scored Adoption in Just 2 Weeks ... Normally Takes Months

2/9/2017 9:15 AM PST
Exclusive Details

0209-madonna-malawi-twins-adoption-INSTAGRAM-01Madonna's third time adopting was a charm because what usually takes 3 to 7 months was accomplished in just 2 weeks ... according to Malawi court officials.

Madonna first applied to adopt Esther and Stella on January 25, which is when the story first got out ... and when she flatly denied she was adopting. Court spokesperson Mlenga Mvula tells us Madge returned this past Tuesday to get the court's sign-off on the adoption. Just like that her brood grew to 6.

We're told this isn't a case of celeb favoritism, but more about Madonna already going through the process twice in Malawi. We're told the court took that into consideration, as well as her extensive charitable work in the country.

It's not a done deal -- a government appointed guardian will travel to the U.S. with Madonna and the girls to do a Home Study Report on how she cares for them. Mvula says that could take up to 12 months, but once it's complete ... the adoption will be fulfilled.

0209-madonna-twins-lola-stella-esther-july-2016-INSTAGRAM-01As for the twins -- we're told their mother died 5 days after giving birth, and their father put them in an orphanage because he had 5 other kids and couldn't afford the extra mouths to feed.

Although it was a quickie adoption, Madonna's known Stella and Esther for a while. She posted this pic of Lourdes with them at the orphanage last summer.

We're told the 4-year-old girls have no idea about Madonna's fame ... she's just Mom now.

Scottie & Larsa Pippen Divorce Stalled ... Trying To Work Things Out

2/8/2017 12:50 AM PST
Exclusive Details

0207-scottie-pippen-larsa-tmz-instagram-01Scottie and Larsa Pippen aren't in any rush to finalize their divorce -- in fact, they're trying to get back on the road to love ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Scottie and Larsa tell us the couple aren't calling it quits quite yet, and are currently focused on getting back to a good place in their marriage. 

We're told they've maintained contact ever since Scottie filed for divorce -- but just to handle business with their kids ... nothing more. Since then, they've gotten a lot friendlier.

The bottom line ... there's still work to be done to fully mend the relationship ... but both Larsa and Scottie would rather stay together, considering their long history.

The proof's also in the courts. Scottie and Larsa each missed deadlines last month for the divorce process, and by the looks of their last outing, this whole thing might get dropped.
