Ivanka Trump Secret Service Nabs Accused Stalker Near Trump Tower

12/10/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-ivanka-trump-tmzIvanka Trump's alleged stalker was only a block away from her family's home base, Trump Tower, when Secret Service swooped in and apprehended him ... TMZ has learned.

Justin Massler -- who did 6 months for aggravated harassment of Donald Trump's daughter in 2012 -- fled a Nevada mental health facility late last month, according to police. Sources with direct knowledge of the case tell us Massler popped up in NYC a few days later, and his brother -- who lives in the city -- booked him a hotel room.

We're told the hotel happened to be just a block away from Trump Tower. Our sources say once Secret Service got wind Massler was in NYC, agents swooped in and arrested him at the hotel on Nov. 29. He was transferred to Bellevue Hospital, and is still there. He hasn't been booked yet. Massler is still on probation from his harassment sentence. 

Ivanka once got a restraining order against Justin, so the Secret Service would be well aware of the potential threat ... especially after he fled Nevada.

Massler's allegedly harassed other people as well. Casting director Lenora Claire has a restraining order against him, and she's going to be profiled on a "48 Hours" segment about stalking crimes.

Kardashian Sisters to Blac Chyna Marrying Rob Won't Get You A Pass To Profit Off Our Name

12/10/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-kardashians-blac-chyna-tmz-instagram-2Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are sticking to their guns when it comes to stopping Blac Chyna from the family name -- and neither marriage nor their mom will change that.

Sources close to the sisters tell us they will not withdraw their opposition to Chyna's application to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- despite Chyna's side saying there's no legal war brewing.

As we told you, BC sources say Kris Jenner reached out and promised to call off the lawyers. But our K sis sources say that's not how they feel about it. We're told it's nothing personal against BC, just biz -- they feel adding an extra woman to the roster will dilute the brand they've worked so hard to build. 

We're told they think it's odd Chyna didn't move for a trademark when she was with Tyga -- although that's kinda apples and oranges. $1 if you know his last name. 

On a personal level, we're told everyone in the fam is getting along well with Chyna since the birth of Dream. Still, business is business and our sources say the sisters' lawyers have made several attempts to negotiate ... but Chyna's team's gone radio silent.

'Harry Potter' Star Hogwarts Hunk Gettin' Hitched No Love Potion Needed!!

12/10/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1208_angela_jones_instagramMatthew Lewis had already transformed from nerdy Neville Longbottom to a Hollywood hottie, and now his life's about to change even more -- the 'Harry Potter' star is engaged.

Lewis popped the question to Angela Jones last month, and she said yes to being his real-life Hannah Abbott. We're told Angela's an event planner at Universal Studios in Orlando, which is where she met Matt ... at a Wizarding World event in January.

The engagement went down in Paris -- très romantique.

This will be Matt's first marriage, and Angela's second. BTW, she just got divorced in July.

Pretty impressive for an old Gryffindork.

DeAndre Jordan Emotional Custody War Over 1-Year-old Son

12/10/2016 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-deandre-jordan-tmz-01DeAndre Jordan was a very happy man on Friday after being awarded joint custody of his 1-year-old son ... the latest in a contentious custody war with his baby mama.

TMZ Sports has learned ... the Clippers superstar appeared in a Ventura County courtroom with his attorney, Laura Wasser, early Friday morning where he was battling to get overnight visits with his kid.

DJ's baby mama, who also appeared in court with her lawyer, Leon F. Bennett, is pushing for sole legal and physical custody -- and DJ is fighting back arguing that he wants to be an active parent and have a major role in his child's life.

We're told the judge ordered joint custody for now -- with overnights -- and told both parents they may NOT have drugs or alcohol 8 hours before their time with the kid and must remain sober while the child is in their care.

DJ was extremely emotional during the hearing and even broke down in tears at one point. We're told he's very happy with Friday's results.

The case is due back in court in March.

Apollo Nida Not So Fast, Phaedra ... Your Divorce Docs Are Wack!

12/10/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-apollo-phaedra-tmz-2Apollo Nida refuses to accept his divorce from Phaedra Parks is a done deal, and his reason -- spelling counts.

Apollo points out his ex's legal name is Phaedra Parks Nida, but in her divorce docs it's spelled "Nita" -- ditto for the spelling of his name in those docs.

He's now filed a motion to vacate her divorce, but not only due to the typos. In the motion, obtained by TMZ, Apollo says the 'RHOA' star took advantage of the fact he's in prison. He says there was a final hearing in July, but he was never notified of it ... and therefore, the divorce should be thrown out.

TMZ broke the story ... Phaedra's unsealed docs appear to back her claim she's been single since July, but if a judge buys Apollo's side of the story ... they could be back to square one.

Let's not forget ... Apollo filed his own divorce docs.

Matt Millen I'm Pumped for the Lions ... Matt Stafford's a Beast!

12/10/2016 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Matt Millen says all traces of his work in Detroit is "long gone" ... and he couldn't be more proud of how the Lions have bounced back into one of the best teams in the NFL.

Of course, Millen was the President and CEO of the Lions from 2001 to 2008 and posted a 31-84 record during his run with the team and took responsibility for the results.

Now that it's been 8 years since his ousting, Millen says there's ZERO hard feelings -- he's thrilled for the city of Detroit and incredibly impressed by QB Matt Stafford.

Since he was also a part of the infamous 2008 Lions team that went 0-16 (though he was let go in Week 4), we asked if he had advice for Browns fans on how to get through their toughest season ever.

Theo Epstein Steve Bartman Is Welcome at Wrigley But Leave That Guy Alone!!

12/10/2016 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

LEAVE STEVE BARTMAN ALONE ... so says Cubs GM Theo Epstein ... who says Cubs fans should back off Bartman for good -- unless he CHOOSES to come out of hiding.

Of course, Bartman is the guy who was blamed for blowing the Cubs playoff run in 2003 when he interfered with a foul ball. Fans demonized him and basically ran him out of town.

But now that the Cubbies are World Series Champs, what should become of Bartman?

We asked Theo, who says the guy is more than welcome back at Wrigley ... but the team isn't going to pressure him to come out and make an appearance.

Basically, the ball's in his court.

Rick Fox I Told You So ... League of Legends Is Bigger Than NHL

12/10/2016 12:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Rick Fox is serving up a big "I Told You So" to anyone who balked at his prediction League of Legends would outgrow the NHL ... and says their recent historic sell out of Staples Center is proof he was right.

We had talked to Fox a little while ago at LAX (guy flies more than Superman) and he'd told us he thinks eSports has a chance to pass the NHL as the nation's fourth sport.

Some balked at the idea ... but that was before the recent League of Legends championships sold out Staples center in an incredible 45 minutes ... something that doesn't really happen in the NHL.

When we got Fox -- who, of course, owns an eSports team -- at LAX ... it was time for the 3 time champion to win another ring ... at gloating.

Khloe and Lamar Legally Single Life Right Around the Corner

12/9/2016 3:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1209-khloe-kardashian-lamar-odom-instagram-tmz-01Khloe Kardashian's free to start planning a Christmas wedding to Tristan Thompson, now that she and Lamar Odom are finally single in the eyes of the law ... or they will be very shortly.  

According to their final divorce docs, stamped by the judge ... their split will be legal on December 17. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, the exes both waived spousal support. As for their assets ... Khloe and Lamar are splitting their production company, Khlomar, and a checking account right down the middle.

She's keeping her interest in DASH Boutique and he's keeping his NBA 401(k) plan. They'd already sold their marital home, and Khloe's keeping the Calabasas home where she currently lives.

This brings their glacial-paced divorce proceedings to a close. Khloe first filed divorce docs in December 2013, withdrew it after his near-fatal OD ... and then refiled in May 2016.

The end.

Eddie George Ezekiel Elliott Is The Rookie Of The Year ... AND THE MVP

12/9/2016 1:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Eddie George says the white-hot Dallas Cowboys will sweep both the MVP and Rookie of The Year Awards ... with one player ... telling TMZ Sports Ezekiel Elliott should WIN THEM BOTH.

The Cowboys have multiple guys up for both Trophies (Dak could slide into either one as well) but when we got George out in NYC he made it clear ... Zeke deserves em both.

It's been done before ... NFL great Earl Campbell pulled the feat off back in 1978 ... and Eddie thinks Zeke is having a beastly enough season to get on that guy's level.

BTW -- George, a Heisman trophy winner, also gives us a little insight on what it's gonna be like for the dude who takes the award home.

Courtney Love I Can Do Amy Winehouse Songs ... Sort Of

12/9/2016 12:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

If Courtney Love doing karaoke sounds like a party to you -- you're right ... especially when she opts to belt out Amy Winehouse's version of "Valerie."

Courtney was at the Bay Club Thursday night in Miami and grabbed a mic to take her best shot at the tune ... along with the assistance of several backup singers.

They might not sound on key, but it definitely sounds like a fun night. The group moved on to Ricky's South Beach afterward -- where actual bands provided the entertainment for live rock night.

Sorry, Court, but just for comparison's sake ... 

Sarah Jessica Parker Digs In Her Heels At D.C. Store Launch (Remind You of Anything?)

12/9/2016 12:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sarah Jessica Parker's shoe store opening in Washington D.C. could've doubled as a lost scene from "Sex and The City" cuz there were enough heels to rival Carrie Bradshaw's collection.

Sarah got to work on her hands and knees at Thursday's opening. Sure, it might've been a little more Al Bundy, since Carrie was always the one buying, but seems like SJP drove a hard bargain from the customers' reactions on the way out.

Good to see those 6 seasons of 'SATC' paying off.
