EXCLUSIVE

Jose Fernandez was divorced at one point in his life, but it's unclear to whom he was married ... according to his death certificate.

TMZ Sports obtained the document and his marital status is crystal clear -- DIVORCED. It's interesting ... we know Jose had a pregnant girlfriend when he died last September in a tragic boating accident. The fact he'd been married before didn't come out previously.

The death certificate also confirms the Marlins pitcher's body was found in the ocean at 3:15 AM. He was cremated in Fort Lauderdale.

Jose was 24.

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown was partying Thursday night with a Karrueche look-alike, but he was in no mood to talk about the real Karrueche's claim he brutalized her and threatened to kill her.

Chris was leaving 1 OAK when our photog asked about Karrueche's restraining order, in which she claims he has punched her, pushed her down the stairs and threatened to shoot her. She also claimed he's been warning people if he couldn't have her, no one could.

Milo Yiannopoulos Sorry, Haters ... I Have a Plan to Stay in the U.S.

2/24/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0223_milo-yiannopoulos_gettyWhen Milo Yiannopoulos quit Breitbart News the clock started ticking on his employment visa, but sadly, for his millions of haters ... he's already figured out a way to stay in America.

Milo is here under an O-1 visa for "aliens of extraordinary ability" -- his being journalism, we're guessing -- but without a U.S. employer to sponsor him, he'd be deported in 60 days. Sources in Milo's camp tell us he's not sweating deportation, because he's lined up a new sponsor.

We're told the people behind a secret new media venture Milo will be working with have agreed in principle to file the necessary paperwork. It's not a done deal yet, but as usual ... Milo's cocky confident he'll close the deal.

On the heels of taking multiple L's -- resigning from his senior editor gig at Breitbart, losing a book deal and a national speaking role -- Milo's trying to bounce back by releasing his book through a new publisher.

Long story short -- we're most likely stuck with him, America.

Neil deGrasse Tyson New Planets Could Have Life But ... If Not, Blame the Dwarf!

2/24/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Neil deGrasse Tyson says there's a chance the newly discovered cluster of Earth-sized planets could harbor life, but there's something big (yet small) they haven't told you about.

Dr. Tyson told us the science community is ecstatic over NASA's discovery. Truth is, even non-scientists are geeking out. Sooo ... here's the bad news.

The 'Cosmos' host has issues with the sun. Not ours, but the red dwarf star next to the newfound planets ... because it's creating a seriously hostile environment. Neil's explanation is awesome!

Better news? He's got a great idea about naming the cluster, as long as Disney doesn't get in the way.

Usain Bolt got a sweet welcome to Carnival in Trinidad & Tobago -- a human sacrifice ... on the dance floor!

The world's fastest man jumped onstage at a concert called TRIBE Ignite, and yelled ... "I love this country so much!" Trini obviously loves him back because the MC quickly offered him "something special" ... with much junk in her trunk.

It was immediately clear this ain't Usain's first rodeo!  

No sign of his longtime gf during this awesome display, but we hear she is on the island too.

One way or another ... there will be daggering!

Neil deGrasse Tyson Blasts Kyrie Irving Stop With the Flat Earth Stupidity!!

2/24/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Neil deGrasse Tyson has a message for Kyrie Irving ... KEEP YOUR DUMB FLAT EARTH BS OUTTA SCIENCE ... saying the world would be a better place if Irving sticks to the court.

Irving caused a stir earlier this week when he appeared on a podcast and said -- completely seriously -- that the earth is flat. That's right kids, your favorite point guard is a flat earther.

We talked to Tyson, one of the smartest men on earth, and he told us he has zero problem with Irving's outrageous claim, as long as Kyrie never does anything remotely having to do with scientific thought.

Bonus shade? Tyson gives us a suggestion of what should happen to every single flat earther left on the surface of this round planet ... and it's pretty hilarious.

'RHOC' Star Vicki Gunvalson I Caught New Hire Stealing Big $$$ ... Cops Investigating

EXCLUSIVE

0209-vicki-gunvalson-tmz-01Vicki Gunvalson says she caught an employee red-handed stealing thousands of dollars from her business and reported him to the police.

Sources close to the 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star tell us she recently noticed huge discrepancies in the books of her insurance brokerage -- a few thousand dollars at least. We're told she did some digging, and it led to a guy who was hired just 2 months ago.

Our sources say Vicki believes the employee embezzled sales commissions to his personal account and poached clients from Vicki's son, Mike, who's a VP at the brokerage.

We're told Vicki canned the guy, and filed a police report 2 weeks ago. Law enforcement sources tell us they've opened an investigation.

'Moonlight' Kid Hey, Will Smith ... Holla at Ya Boy!

2/23/2017 4:33 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Moonlight" star Jaden Piner has 2 huge goals for his first Oscar night -- getting next to one of those golden statues AND meeting with Will Smith. He's only prepared for one of those.

Jaden plays the kid version of one of the main characters, and just flew in for the award show. The 13-year-old told us he's ready for his close-up if his movie takes Best Picture, but he seems way more intimidated to meet big Willie.

By the way, kid's got the Hollywood spiel down pat already ... based on his Oscar prediction. He also knows all the right answers when dad's within earshot. His response when our photog asked about dating 7th grade girls is classic!

We predict big things for Jaden.

Her father -- who also appeared on the show -- said he's met (and likes) Chandler but expressed concern about his daughter dating an NBA player. 

Well, dad ... don't worry.

Sources close to the NBA star tell us they've definitely hung out -- but they ain't exactly boyfriend/girlfriend. 

"Savannah and Chandler are just close friends," one extremely connected source tells us.

"He thinks both she and her dad are awesome and values his relationship with both of them. However, his focus remains on finishing the NBA season strong and gearing up for a deep run in the playoffs."

WNBA Legend Chamique Holdsclaw Calls Out Jameis Winston ... Women Have A Voice, A LOUD One

2/23/2017 3:34 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

One of the greatest female basketball players ever is calling out Jameis Winston ... saying the time of women being silent, submissive and meek is OVER ... and he'd better get used to it.

TMZ Sports spoke with Chamique Holdsclaw, a former 2-time NCAA player of the year and 6-time WNBA All-Star who says Jameis was WAY OFF when he told elementary school kids that women are "supposed to be silent, polite and gentle."

"Young girls to be silent? That's not the way that I was raised," Holdsclaw told us.

"When I'm out there ministering to young girls, I'm telling them you gotta be your authentic self ... you can't be stuck in a box. You can't heed to traditional stereotypes of what a woman should be."

She didn't stop there ...

"We have to teach these men and boys not to tear us down either and not limit us with their expectations or perceptions of us."

Best part of the vid? When we asked how a group of WNBA players woulda reacted to Jameis telling THEM that ... here's a hint, he probably would've needed an Uber.

EXCLUSIVE

When George Clooney's children are born, he can count on his pal, Don Cheadle, to babysit ... he just might not get back the kids!

Don was getting out of town Thursday at LAX and we asked if he'd give George any parenting tips -- or maybe offer his own full grown daughters to help out once Amal has the twins.

Don scoffed at both ideas, and instead told us he'd be willing to take the kids off George's hands permanently. He was kidding ... we're pretty sure.

Porsha Williams Kandi Took a Low Blow at Me! I'm No Bigot, But I'll Re-Apologize

2/23/2017 1:25 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0223-porsha-williams-kandi-burruss-TMZ-01Porsha Williams thinks Kandi Burruss is taking shots at her just to fire up the LGBTQ community over some ancient video, for which Porsha's already apologized.

Porsha tells TMZ she's extremely disheartened Kandi would stoop low and bring the word "hate" into the mix while referencing her church sermon from 10 years ago. She claims it was taken out of context, and stands by her former apology for the video.

Kandi told one of our photogs she thinks Porsha doesn't love herself, because she attacked the gay community in the sermon even though she's had lesbian experiences ... which came out on 'RHOA.' 

Porsha says Kandi should stop trying to make trouble ... especially because she already did a mea culpa, saying ... "I believe we are all God's children ... although some people judge others by race, gender, status, religion, or sexual orientation, we should ALL have the right to serve God."

She says she stands by those words today, no matter what Kandi thinks.
