David Hogg & Cameron Kasky Prom Pose Pic was Just for Fun ... We're Not Dating

4/24/2018 9:28 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Parkland student leaders David Hogg and Cameron Kasky have nothing but love for one another, but they're not actually going to prom together ... TMZ has learned.

Cameron's tweet Monday of this photo with the caption "Prom 2018" led many to believe the 2 were announcing their prom plans ... but their parents tell us it's not true.

David's mom, Rebecca Boldrick, tells us David has another date for the prom, and the photo with Cameron was taken during a video shoot Monday for U2's RED campaign the high schoolers were working on.

Cameron's dad, Jeff Kasky, tells us ... "Cameron and David love each other very much, as do the 20 or so other kids that are part of their group, but not in a romantic type of way."

We're told Marjory Stoneman Douglas High just has a senior prom -- and Cameron's only a junior -- so while he could go if he gets invited by a senior like David ... they're just friends.

'Night Court' Star Harry Anderson Died of a Stroke Influenza & Heart Disease as Contributing Causes

4/24/2018 8:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Night Court" star Harry Anderson died of a stroke he apparently suffered in the night, which might've been triggered by the flu and a specific type of heart disease. 

TMZ has obtained Anderson's death certificate, which lists the actor's primary cause of death as cardioembolic cerebrovascular accident, which is a stroke that's caused by the heart pumping unwanted materials into the brain's circulation. 

The contributing causes are listed as influenza -- the flu -- and a heart disease that affects the tissue of the organ by either enlarging it or disrupting its natural motor function.

As we reported ... Anderson was found dead on arrival last week after his wife called 911. She told the operator that his body was cold, and that CPR wouldn't help. She also mentioned he'd suffered a series of strokes earlier this year.

He was 65. 

Gronk Praised By World-Famous DJ For Avicii Tribute

4/24/2018 8:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Gronkowski celebrated Avicii's life EXACTLY the way the DJ would've wanted ... so says another world-famous DJ, who tells TMZ Sports Gronk put a little happy into a terribly sad situation.

We got Gianluca Vacchi (yes, he's Italian) -- the dude GQ once called "The Coolest Man On Instagram" -- and asked him what he thought of Gronk turning up to Avicii's song in Austin this weekend.

You can tell Vacchi (who's remixed Avicii's music in the past) was moved by the tribute, telling our camera guy having fun is the whole point of EDM, and the perfect way to honor the late DJ.

Sad story, but you know what's not sad? Vacchi's Instagram. Dude has over 11 million followers and we gotta say his lifestyle makes Gronk look like Peyton Manning.

RIP Avicii.

Waffle House Offers to Pay Funeral Expenses Of Shooting Victims

4/24/2018 7:22 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Waffle House has offered to pay for the funerals of the 4 people killed in its restaurant in Tennessee over the weekend ... and will help to cover the medical expenses of those injured.

A rep for the company tells us they've reached out to the families of the victims of the attack to help in any way they can. We're told the restaurant chain has offered to pay for all funeral and medical costs associated with the attack.

Four people were killed and another 4 injured when 29-year-old Travis Reinking entered the restaurant with an AR-15 and opened fire.

WH's director of PR, Pat Warner, says the company's CEO and Senior Management team has personally visited with victims and their families to offer condolences and assistance during the difficult time.

We're told company honchos have developed a personal relationship with James Shaw Jr. -- the man responsible for disarming the gunman -- and have offered assistance to him as well.

Reinking was arrested in a wooded area Monday after more than a day on the run. His motives for carrying out the shooting are still unknown.

Kourtney Kardashian Bombarded For Selfies ... on Capitol Hill!

4/24/2018 8:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kourtney Kardashian was just like any ol' senator or congresswoman walking through the hallways of the Capitol Tuesday in a suit and on a mission to change the law ... until she was bombarded for selfies.

The eldest Kardashian didn't say much on her way to talk about regulating cosmetics and other personal care products, but couldn't resist the opportunity to get one pic in with a fan.

The 39-year-old is there lobbying for environmentally-friendly cosmetic products.

Gotta say Kourtney looks like she's holding her ground, so perhaps there's a future there in politics for her. Wouldn't be the first time a reality star made it far in politics.

Joey Lawrence Bankruptcy Ain't Crampin' My Style

4/24/2018 7:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joey Lawrence officially settled his bankruptcy case, but it's not hurting his game in Hollywood ... at all.

Joey, who got the bankruptcy judge's sign off 2 weeks ago, hit up Craig's restaurant in WeHo Monday night ... an expensive proposition for sure. He left in a brand new Dodge Challenger Hellcat, which retails for around $60k minimum.

It's interesting, considering Joey had a 2014 Bentley, a 2016 BMW i8 and a 2015 Ford Flex repoed.

According to the bankruptcy docs, Joey claimed he had $8k to his name in the bank and $60 in cash.

Impressive Hollywood rebound.

Rick Ross to TMZ Photog I'm Gonna Clean You Up 'Hervis' Levin, Too, Actually!

4/24/2018 7:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rick Ross does not want to be approached by scrubs in the streets, which is a lesson our camera guy -- and Harvey Levin -- might need to learn the hard way.

We got Rozay Monday leaving The London hotel in NYC, where our photog asked about how he felt about Meek Mill still being locked up despite a rallying cry from the public. Ross tells us it's BS, and that his label mate still has his support ... but then changed the subject.

The Boss calls out our guy for not having a clean shave -- but the good news is that he generously offers to hook him up with his own line of 'RICH' hair care products.

Even better news ... Rick extends his offer to our boss, 'Hervis,' whom the rap mogul says has been looking stressed as of late. You don't gotta tell us, Renzel. Also ... do it!!!!

Tracy Morgan Gets His 'Headsprung' As 'Last O.G.' is Renewed

4/24/2018 7:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tracy Morgan sticks to his O.G. status on and off camera, especially when he hears his hit new show just got picked up for a new season ... queue LL Cool J slaps.

We got Tracy Monday arriving to the 'Daily Show' set in NYC, where he was scheduled to appear as one of Trevor Noah's guests. He also happened to show up hours after the news broke that his TBS comedy, "The Last O.G.," had gotten picked up for a second season. 

Call us crazy, but it sounds like Tracy knew his character, Tray, was coming back -- 'cause he was blasting LL's 2004 single, "Headsprung," out of his Rolls-Royce, which is nothing short of a party anthem. He also had on the biggest damn chain in the world.

Granted ... 2004 ain't all that old when you're talking 'O.G.' -- especially for an LL track -- but we'll cut the dude a break. Good news is good news, right?

DJ Khaled and Kevin Hart Go to War Over Heat vs. 76ers!!!

4/24/2018 6:24 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Most polite war ever!!! 

Here's DJ Khaled telling TMZ Sports why the Miami Heat will come back and beat the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA playoffs. 

And here's Kevin Hart explaining why Khaled's OUT OF HIS DAMN MIND!!!

The Heat are currently down 3-1 to the 76ers -- and Philly can close it out Tuesday night in the City of Brotherly Love. 

But Khaled -- who's a diehard Heat fan -- ain't giving up hope. In fact, he says Miami has that championship pedigree you can't ever count out. 

Enter Kevin Hart (or exit Kevin Hart) who says he's getting on a plane and heading to Philly ... and shocker, he's repping hard for his squad. 

We'll see who emerges victorious Tuesday night ... 

Kourtney Kardashian Meeting With Congress To Talk Cosmetics

4/24/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kourtney Kardashian is about to dip her toes into D.C. politics ... and it's all in the name of cosmetics.

Our Kardashian sources say Kourtney will come face-to-face with several members of Congress Tuesday in hopes of helping to reform the laws that regulate cosmetics and other personal care products. We're told Kourt's teamed up with the Environmental Working Group for the trip. 

Kourtney touched down in D.C. Monday, where she was joined by the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" camera crew to capture the meetings. Our sources say the 'KUWTK' staff booked a block of hotel rooms and a conference room, as well, but it's unclear if other family members will join. 

Kourtney's been a huge promoter of environmentally safe products in the past -- and she recently teamed up with Kylie for a cosmetics collaboration -- so it seems like Kourt wants to make sure she's putting out a healthy product for users and the planet.

Rich The Kid Lil Uzi Vert Is a 'Dead Friend'

4/24/2018 7:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid made it pretty clear there's no hope for reconciliation when it comes to his beef with Lil Uzi Vert and all you have to do is listen to the lyrics of his new diss song, "Dead Friends."

We got Rich the Kid out in NYC Monday and asked him about the beef. RTK dodged our question about the feud in favor of rapping the lyrics from his new track and that's telling, especially if you've seen the video.

If you haven't ... RTK puts out a hit, murders and buries what everyone believes is a Lil Uzi look-alike six feet under.

If there was any doubt the guy in the video was supposed to be Lil Uzi, RTK seems to clear that one up. 

Cardi B Did Jay Ask to Touch Your Belly?

4/24/2018 6:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

While it's unclear if Jay-Z asked to touch Cardi B's baby bump at Coachella this past weekend, it's also likely she doesn't mind -- 'cause she didn't seem to object then ... or now.

We got Cardi and her fiance, Offset, Monday leaving Mastro's in Bev Hills, where our photog asked when her baby was due -- but, more importantly, whether she signed off on Jay reaching down to quickly cup her belly in the front row of Beyonce's concert Saturday.

Cardi stays mum on that detail. But what is clear here is that she's fully baring her pregnant body in public now, and looking fantastic while doing it. 

Our guy also tried asking Offset about Kanye West allegedly telling HOT 97 radio host Ebro that he loves Donald Trump. He had an interesting response ... more flossing than talking.

Sean Spicer Reuniting With A Trump ... In Wax

4/24/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sean Spicer is back to repping a Trump, but this time it's the First Lady, Melania, as a wax figure at Madame Tussauds in New York City. 

Spicer is launching the "Give Melania a Voice" experience at the wax museum this Wednesday. It's Madame Tussauds' first wax figure of the First Lady and it'll be interactive, which might explain why Spicer is doing the honor. 

Visitors will be able to tweet on Melania's behalf from a tweeting station nearby, which will then go live to a FLOMT (First Lady of Madame Tussauds) account. 

Spicer will also participate in a Q&A at the unveiling about his time in the White House, but is keeping it short, just like an ol' White House press conference. The whole event is expected to last 15 minutes.
