XXXTentacion Finishing Dream Home ... Just Before Murder

6/19/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

XXXTentacion was putting the finishing touches on his dream home when he was shot and killed Monday ... something that was supposed to be a crowning moment of achievement. 

XXX plunked down $1.4 million in November on the Parkland, Florida mansion located 15 minutes from the shooting. The nearly 6,000 square foot home has 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and a pool on more than an acre of land. 

Neighbors tell us construction crews had been working to complete the project, installing a security fence on the perimeter. XXX moved in recently and neighbors say he was quiet, but friendly.  

TMZ broke the story, XXX was gunned down Monday in what the Broward County Sheriff's Office says appears to be an attempted robbery as he left a local motorcycle store.

So far, no arrests.

Nas Everything IS Love with Jay & Bey ... Despite New Album Timing

6/19/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jay-Z and Beyonce dropping their surprise album the day after Nas released his, has many fans thinking the legendary Jay-Nas beef is back, but this won't be a throwback to 2001 ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Nas tell us the Queensbridge rapper isn't fuming about "Everything Is Love" being released on Saturday, and doesn't think the Carters will steal any thunder from his new album, "Nasir." We're told Nas fully appreciates the fact Jay and Bey are hip-hop royalty at this point, and actually really likes their new record.

If you don't know, and you should, Nas and Jay had a huge feud going in the late '90s and early 2000s. They went at each other in songs and interviews for years before burying the whole thing in 2005.

They've been friends ever since, and we're told Nas is more interested in "black excellence" these days ... rather than drama.

Sorry, Internet. See Tekashi69 or Bhad Bhabie if you're looking for smoke this week.

Rob Kardashian Blac Chyna's Trying To Sabotage Me I Pay Child Support!!!

6/19/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian pays Blac Chyna child support, and she flat-out lied on social media just to ruin his Father's Day ... according to sources close to Rob.

For those who missed it ... Chyna dissed both her baby daddys on her Instagram Story Sunday in a message that read: "wow Tyga and Rob ... no child support BOSS BITCH ALL 201[8]."

We're told Rob thinks it was just Chyna trying to ruin his Father's Day and egg him on to go after her ... something he's prohibited from doing, according to their custody agreement -- they made an agreement to keep all the negative stuff off social media.

For the most part, there hasn't been a lot of drama between the two recently. We're told Rob pays child support, but wants it drastically lowered because he's not making any money and the $20k a month no longer has a correlation to his ability to pay.

As for their daughter, Dream, we're told Rob never skips a visit. 

Stormy Daniels Thanks for the PR, Trump ... I'm Pushing High-Priced Panties!!!

6/19/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stormy Daniels is famous for taking off her underwear -- on camera and with Donald Trump, allegedly -- but now she's using her Trump-fueled fame to get women INTO lingerie ... for a price.

Stormy's launching her own line of intimates with designer Helen Hoey. They'll be sold at PULCHRA in Beverly Hills, which should already give you a hint they'll be high-end. We're told pieces in the collection will cost over $100 a pop. 

The line is being described as "edgy and sophisticated with vintage aesthetics." Not sure what all that means, but seems like a lot of words for items that won't be on for very long. 

Stormy will slip into the goods, first -- she's set to model in the lingerie campaign.

We spoke to Connor and it's crystal clear the fitness coach from Florida was never a fan of Lincoln (they had a spat early in the season) and especially now that Lincoln's dark past has surfaced.

As we reported ... Lincoln was charged with indecent assault and battery a week before the premiere, after allegedly groping a woman's breasts and grinding up on her aboard a ship.

Connor says hearing about Lincoln's dirty laundry rubbed him the wrong way. Check it out ... Connor says Lincoln's gonna get his ass handed to him if he decides to show up to the 'Tell All' episode, which hasn't filmed yet.

Chris Pratt Looks Smitten With Katherine Schwarzenegger!!

6/18/2018 2:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Pratt is apparently a hopeless romantic, who really knows how to make a girl laugh -- just ask Katherine Schwarzenegger!!

Chris was spotted on a picnic date Sunday with Arnold and Maria's 28-year-old daughter. The duo's outing went down up in Santa Barbara, and Chris was a total gentleman -- picking up Katherine at her place and driving her up the coast.

We've seen Chris get flirty before, but this is the first time we've seen him on a full-fledged date since he filed for divorce from Anna Faris back in December.

While Katherine clearly has a Hollywood pedigree, she's not IN the biz. She's an interior designer and lifestyle blogger.

Whatever their conversation was during the date ... they both look impressed and happy.

2:40 PM PT -- Broward Co. Sheriff's Dept. says XXXTentacion has been pronounced dead.

According to the dispatch call the suspects were described as 2 black males wearing hoodies, and the shooter was wearing a red mask.

The car has been confirmed as a black Dodge Journey, with dark tint and black wheels.

1:48 PM PT -- According to dispatch audio -- the incident was a possible drive-by -- dispatchers named a black Dodge Journey as the possible getaway.

1:35 PM PT -- The Broward Co. Fire Dept. tells us XXX has been rushed to a hospital. Witnesses say they heard multiple shots fired. His condition is unknown at this point.

XXXTentacion was shot Monday -- TMZ has learned -- and an eyewitness tells us he appeared lifeless with no pulse.

The 20-year-old rapper was shopping for motorcycles in South Florida and, as he was leaving the motorcycle dealer, a gunman ran up to his vehicle and shot him.

XXX was in his share of feuds ... but, as far as we know, there were no ominous fights between him and anyone else.

He's had serious legal trouble ... he's awaiting trial for domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend. He's facing more than a dozen felony charges. Prosecutors accused him of witness tampering.  

XXX was on house arrest, but the judge recently let him out so he could tour.

XXX was well respected by other artists for his musical talent. Shortly after news of his death, Kanye West reacted.

He'd had real success in his brief career -- his last album debuted at #1.

Last year he got jumped by a bunch of guys in L.A., and initially thought Migos was responsible. He later apologized to them, but he told us the incident did not shake him enough to increase his security detail.

EXCLUSIVE

Gabriel Rosado -- the real life pro boxer who fought Michael B. Jordan in "Creed" -- says he's ready to return the ring ... and he's got his sights set on Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. 

32-year-old Rosado is a middleweight fighter who's squared up against the likes of Gennady Golovkin, Jermell Charlo and Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin

Rosado hasn't fought since Oct. 2017 -- but tells TMZ Sports he's "in talks" to make his comeback against Chavez Jr., the former WBC middleweight champ. 

"We might be out here in the Staples Center," Rosado says. 

Perfect location ... dude loves Hollywood

By the way, Rosado lost when he fought GGG, but the dude was a warrior ... fighting into the 7th round in one of the bloodiest fights of Golovkin's career. 

Rosado's corner wanted to stop the fight, but Gabriel wouldn't let 'em. Gotta admit, dude's got heart.

EXCLUSIVE

UFC champ T.J. Dillashaw agrees with Dana White ... CM Punk showed a lot of balls by getting into the Octagon -- but admits his performance was trash. 

T.J. joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs weeknights on FS1) -- where he talked about his upcoming rematch with Cody Garbrandt at UFC 227 in August. 

Even though the two have had bad blood in the past, T.J. says he respects Cody and anyone else who gets in the Octagon to compete ... including CM Punk. 

"Yeah, sure, he did not look good at all -- but he still went out there and did it ... respect."

There's a lot more with T.J. in the full interview which airs Monday night on "TMZ Sports."

Suge Knight Can't Leave Jail for Mom's Funeral

6/18/2018 11:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight's chances of getting out of jail to attend his mother's funeral have dwindled down to about zero ... because rules are rules.

We spoke to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department who tells us Suge can't get his hands on a "get out of jail free" card to attend events ... even if that event happens to be his own mother's funeral. As we reported, Maxine Chatman died Sunday. 

The reason's simple ... Suge's an inmate who falls under a category that makes him ineligible to attend funerals -- he's a homicide suspect. Suge's in jail awaiting trial for murder.

That being said, Suge could file a petition with the court, but we're told the likelihood of a court going against the Sheriff's Department is slim.

EXCLUSIVE

Drake just made a giant leap in the Son of the Year award standings ... plunking down some serious money to get his dad, Dennis Graham, a baller-ass gift on Father's Day.

Our sources say Dennis was home Sunday and got a call saying there was a gift outside for him. Thinking it was just some package delivery, Dennis strolled outside and, lo and behold ... someone pulled up in this SICK baby blue Bentley.

The guy delivering the whip told Dennis it was a Father's Day gift from Drake. In obvious shock, Dennis called Drake right away and couldn't be more thankful for the new wheels.

The Bentley's estimated value is about $150k ... so, yeah, baller gift!!

Trae Young Allen Iverson Reached Out ... to Give Me NBA Advice

6/18/2018 11:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Trae Young is on his way to the NBA Draft ... but before he got on the plane, he talked to TMZ Sports about everything from fashion to advice he's received from some of his NBA idols. 

One guy who's reached out is Allen Iverson, Young says ... "I'm a fan of his!"  

Young is projected to be a Top 10 pick -- but says don't sleep on the rest of the draft class ... "It's overlooked for sure. Some really good people."

The former Oklahoma star was also stoked to show off his new kicks -- OFF-WHITE Low 3.0s ... designed by fashion legend Virgil Abloh. The shoes cost around $600 a pair. 

Young says he's been out in L.A. training -- but didn't work out for the Lakers while in town. So, pretty safe bet he won't end up in the Purple & Gold. 

They've got the 25th pick anyway ... so there's no chance Young will be around that late. 

Good luck!
