EXCLUSIVE

Some dude has started a GoFundMe account to pay for Charles Manson's funeral expenses ... and some people actually bit.

We don't know who the guy is, but he's raised $949.  He tells a sob story to get some measure of sympathy and shockingly, it seemed to have worked.

TMZ broke the story ... if no one claims the body within 10 days of Manson's death, his remains will be cremated and any expenses incurred in the cremation will be taken from Manson's assets.

Nigel Lythgoe 'Innocent Until Proven Guilty' Out the Window

11/23/2017 6:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nigel Lythgoe is troubled by misconduct allegations made by Ryan Seacrest's stylist ... especially because she allegedly wanted $15 million in return for her silence.

We got the brainchild behind "American Idol" Wednesday at the Grove, and asked about the stylist who says Seacrest crossed the line with her between 2007 and 2010 -- right at the time "A.I." was huge.  Nigel says the money demand is troubling.

TMZ broke the story ... the woman's lawyer asked for $15 million and threatened to send a press release -- which he had prepared -- to the media unless he got paid ... this according to multiple sources.  The lawyer denies he demanded $15 mil but does not deny making a money demand.

Nigel went on to grouse that the concept of "innocent until proven guilty" has been turned on its head.

Faith Evans Auctioning Tupac's Junk Pics and Biggie's Murder Car ... It's Just Vile

11/23/2017 7:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Faith Evans says it's a sign of the times that an auction house is trying to make money by selling a pic of Tupac's junk.

We got Biggie's widow Wednesday at LAX and she expressed dismay about Tupac's selfie that's hitting the auction block.  But as bad as that is ... she thinks auctioning off the door of the car in which Biggie was gunned down is even worse.

Faith thinks there's a bigger issue ... that people will do anything for publicity and a buck. 

Byron Scott to LaVar Ball Shut Up! Luke Walton Knows More Than You

11/23/2017 12:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Lakers head coach Byron Scott has two words for LaVar Ball -- SHUT UP!!!!

Ball recently laid into Lakers coach Luke Walton ... saying he's "soft" and doesn't know how to properly coach his son, Lonzo Ball

So, we hit up Byron to see how he would handle the situation if he was in Luke's shoes. Long story short, Byron says guys like LaVar need to shut their traps and let the coaches coach. 

"Shut up. Stay put. Stay on the sidelines. We got this."

BTW, Scott's hosting a live music event in Hollywood Friday night ... that LaVar Ball will probably not be attending.

Master P To LaVar Ball LaVar Should Thank Trump ... God Would Like It

11/23/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Master P says LaVar Ball is dead wrong for not thanking Donald Trump ​... Telling TMZ Sports he believes POTUS did help get the 3 UCLA players out of jail, and thanking him is the Christian thing to do.

Ball has refused to thank Trump despite the fact his son LiAngelo and the other UCLA players did, sparking a full-scale war of words between the Big Baller and #45.

We got P at LAX and asked him about the whole fiasco, and he couldn't have been any clearer, saying he believes in God and that means he believes in showing gratitude, even to Trump.

"I put God first, so I think that if somebody help you ... that you be appreciative, that's it."

For the record, we doubt LaVar will ever say "Thanks" to Trump, but we're pretty sure he's gonna have some words for P pretty soon.

EXCLUSIVE

David Cassidy might be gone, but his old mansion in Florida is very much in business.

Cassidy's former waterfront home in Fort Lauderdale is currently for rent, with prices ranging from $1,200 to almost $2,000 a night depending on the season. Right now, it's going for around $1,500/night  ... winter comfort ain't cheap, ya know?

Folks wanting to crash in Cassidy's old digs have to shell out for a minimum of 3 nights, but it might be worth it considering everything there.

The 6-bed, 6-bath estate is adjacent to a private lake with a dock. It also comes with a pool and spa, an outdoor barbecue, a volleyball court and complimentary paddle boards and kayaks for the adventurous types. There's a bunch of Cassidy memorabilia on display, too. Awards, personal posters, and videos of his concerts ... like a mini Cassidy museum.

The former teen idol sold the house in 2015 for $2 million after purchasing it in 2001. Even though he died this week ... c'mon, you can get happy about this.

EXCLUSIVE

One of Josh Gordon's ex-teammates says the troubled NFL star is on track for a HUGE comeback ... telling TMZ Sports he knows the Browns receiver is as focused as ever on football. 

We spoke with N.Y. Jets star Buster Skrine -- he played with Gordon on the Browns -- who says he's pulling for his old friend to put his past behind him and ball out on the field. 

"I asked him to come to New York (this summer), he was down in Florida training. He was like, 'Man, I'm focused. Blase, blase,' so I knew it was a complete turnaround for him," Skrine says. 

And get this -- Skrine was out donating 250 turkeys and 200 pounds of veggies for Thanksgiving with his foundation when we ran into him.

Good work, Buster.

Casper and J Lo called it quits in August 2016 after several years of dating, but clearly there was no need for pity tears.

Casper and Paige -- the creator of Fitin5 Challenge with 4 million Instagram followers -- just flew to Miami together for one of his events where she was his plus one. They boarded Dave Grutman’s boat where we're pretty sure they had all sorts of fun.

Here's Freddie Mitchell ... aka FredEx ... aka former UCLA All-American ... who's spelling out why Westwood is the move, and Gainesville isn't.

NFL's Fletcher Cox Sued You Ruined My Marriage When You Banged My Wife!

11/22/2017 2:54 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Imagine finding out Philadelphia Eagles superstar Fletcher Cox nailed your smokin' hot wife and wanted her to have his baby.

Pretty cool if you're a die-hard Eagles fan ... not cool if you're North Carolina resident Joshua Jeffords.

Josh claims he's got hardcore proof that the 6'4", 310 pound defensive tackle seduced and banged his wife behind his back while she was on a work trip to Pennsylvania back in April.

Jeffords claims Cox continued the relationship via text messages -- which Josh now has -- and he says it's smoking gun proof that Cox is liable for "alienation of affection" ... which you can sue for in N.C.

According to North Carolina state law, to win an A.O.A. case, one must prove 3 things ... 

1) You and and your spouse had a genuine love and affection

2) The love and affection was alienated and destroyed

3) Malicious acts of a 3rd party produced the alienation of affection. Malicious is presumed if there's proof of sexual intercourse. 

In his lawsuit, filed on Nov. 22, Jeffords claims Cox sent her a photo of his penis on Snapchat and followed up with text messages telling her he wanted to knock her up.

He provided copies of the alleged texts that read, "I want to get you pregnant" and "I'm dead ass serious." Another text says, "You ain't gone be no damn single mom."

Jeffords says his marriage has completely crumbled -- his wife has blocked him on Instagram -- and he blames Fletcher for everything.

He's suing Fletcher for more than $25,000. 

We've called Cox's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

UFC superstar Cris Cyborg’s got a secret weapon for her fight against Holly Holm -- boxing legend Mia St. John -- and TMZ Sports has footage of their intense sparring sesh. 

Cyborg and MSJ traded shots for four 2-minute rounds at the RVCA gym in L.A. ... and you can tell they were taking it seriously -- even though Cris and Mia agreed not to go full beast mode before they stepped into the ring.

St. John actually faced Holly in a 2005 pro boxing match ... and even though Mia lost, we're told she was sharing tips on how to beat Holm with Cyborg.

After the gloves came off, MSJ told us -- "If Cris lands one solid punch, it's over for Holly."

If you're wondering why these 2 got together ... Cyborg's hitting up Mia's charity event on mental health awareness next weekend. 

Pretty crazy to see these legends team up -- especially considering St. John recently called out Cris for a Playboy Mansion fight!
