Stephen Belafonte Mel B Threw Out My Baby Pics ... Left Me Her Old Clothes

10/23/2017 10:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B coldly boxed up and tossed out her estranged husband's stuff ... according to Stephen Belafonte, who's not taking it well.

Stephen says Mel packed up 10 boxes of his belongings, which he picked up on Oct. 4 -- but he was shocked at what was NOT in the boxes. He says he was expecting to see his personal baby pics, clothes, shoes and paperwork.

Instead, he says all he got were Mel's old clothes, some crappy used towels and his step daughter Angel's clothes. Stephen thinks Mel trashed his stuff in retaliation. He's filed docs asking the judge to let him go on a search and recover mission.

Remember, Mel has a restraining order against Stephen -- but he's requesting a 2-3 hour reprieve, so he can go into the house and get his stuff.

DJ Khaled to Asahd Here's a $100k Watch, Son!!! Good Luck Wearing It

10/23/2017 9:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DJ Khaled is hooking up his famous son, Asahd, with 2 things for his 1st birthday -- a sick diamond-studded watch, and a ton of patience ... 'cause he can't even wear the watch yet.

Khaled's wife, Nicole Tuck, commissioned Haute Living -- which also threw the birthday bash -- to make a VERY nice watch for Asahd. The piece is laced with more than 600 diamonds which weigh in at 11.65 carats ... all for just over $100k.

We're told the watch is a Franck Muller model in rose gold, with Asahd's name and birth date engraved on the back. It's also adult sized, and seeing as how Asahd just turned 1 ... he probably won't be ballin' out anytime soon. Good to know it's waiting on deck though.

You da best, Mom & Dad!

Janet Jackson NOT Banned from Super Bowl Halftime ... NFL Says

10/23/2017 9:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Well, this is interesting ... 

If Justin Timberlake wants Janet Jackson in his halftime show, he can have Janet Jackson ... because there is NO official ban barring her from performing at Super Bowl 52, TMZ Sports has learned. 

After the nipplegate incident in 2004, Janet was seemingly blackballed by the NFL -- she hasn't worked with the league since.

Now, with JT getting the SB52 halftime show, it's clearly water under the bridge when it comes to his relationship with the NFL. But what about Janet?

We reached out to the league and we're told straight-up, "There’s no ban."

So, does this mean Timberlake will bring Janet on as a special guest?

An NFL spokesperson tells us, "We are not going to comment on any speculation regarding potential guests. There may be no guests. Along with Pepsi, we’re excited to have Justin Timberlake."

That's not exactly a "no" ... 

Fingers crossed!

EXCLUSIVE

Mark Cuban will challenge Donald Trump in the primaries ... IF he decides to run for President in 2020.

Cuban was profiled on the Fox News Channel show "OBJECTified" Sunday night, and he declared which party he'd choose if he were to run ... he says it'd be Republican.

The Mavericks owner says he's still deciding whether he'll throw his hat in the ring, and that a lot depends on whether his wife is down with the run.

Cuban had supported Trump early on in the last race but soured on him -- Cuban felt he wasn't serious about understanding important issues. He became a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton in the general.

EXCLUSIVE

Bill Murray's putting his foot down -- want an autograph? Cough up a donation, and $3 is NOT gonna cut it.

Pras 'No Need' For Janet At Super Bowl ... It's Too Risky

10/23/2017 7:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A hip-hop legend says don't look for Justin Timberlake to bring out Janet Jackson during his Super Bowl halftime show, telling TMZ Sports the reunion would be too risky for the NFL.

We got Pras -- one of the founding members of The Fugees -- out at Madeo in L.A. and asked if he thought Justin should do Janet a solid and bring her back to the big stage.

Janet's been banned ever since nipplegate back in '04, but let's face it, Justin was an accomplice and a lot of people think if JT's back in the fold, JJ should be too.

Not Pras, who told us there was "no need" to bring Janet back (ouch, bro) and went on to explain to us why he felt like the NFL might not be over Ms. Jackson being a little nasty.

Still though, do the right thing, Timberlake ...

'Veep' Star Diedrich Bader Oswald Acted Alone

10/23/2017 6:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Veep" star Diedrich Bader thinks the thousands of soon-to-be-released secret documents relating to the Kennedy assassination will not change the government's conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.

Diedrich -- who played Rex Kwan Do in "Napoleon Dynamite" -- was strolling in Larchmont Village Sunday when he took a minute to scoff at Trump's proclamation that he will not stand in the way of the documents being released this week. Intelligence officials have been lobbying for the Prez to withhold the release.

He says Oswald was an excellent shot and he's been to the School Book Depository Bldg. and says Oswald was more than capable of doing the deed. Fact is ... Oswald was considered a good shot but not a great shot, and getting 3 shots off in less than 6 seconds was a challenge.

The documents should be interesting ... there's clearly a reason the CIA and other government agencies wanted these documents under wraps. Kennedy was a foe of the CIA after it led him astray in the Bay of Pigs invasion, and there's a school of thought Oswald worked for the agency and it was behind the assassination.

We will see.

EXCLUSIVE

The Dodgers keep winning -- first the NL pennant, and now Stevie Wonder tells TMZ Sports he's willing to pick up his harmonica and perform the national anthem at the World Series!!! 

Of course, there's some backstory here ... Wonder famously took a knee (and then a 2nd knee) during the height of the NFL national anthem demonstrations earlier this year. 

Which begs a few questions ... would the Dodgers be cool with Stevie? Would Stevie use the massive platform to demonstrate again? Who are they gonna get bigger than Stevie Wonder?! 

Stay tuned ...

EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill's gotta give it up to his legal team -- the rapper struck another sweet deal and his assault case has been thrown out.

TMZ broke the story ... Meek was charged with misdemeanor assault back in March after allegedly getting into an altercation with someone wanting a pic with the rapper at St. Louis International Airport. 

Fast forward 7 months ... Meek's high-powered attorney, Joe Tacopina, tells us Meek struck a deal with prosecutors to have the case dismissed if he performed community service ... which he did at the Veterans Association in Philly.

The news comes on the heels of Meek's reckless driving case -- where his arrest record will be wiped clean if he keeps his nose clean for 6 months.

Lay low, Meek.
