LaMelo & LiAngelo Ball Crush 3rd Lithuania Game Drop 60!!

1/15/2018 11:21 AM PST
LIVE STREAM

The Ball boys are back in a BIG way ... bustin' out for 60 POINTS combined in a blowout win for BC Vytautas in Lithuania.

LaMelo showed out from the jump -- getting up for a dunk and beating the first-half buzzer -- but the dopest play of the game had to be when he found big bro, LiAngelo, for a fastbreak oop in the 3rd.

Full disclosure -- Melo also missed an alley-oop to himself ... but who cares when you're a Big Baller?

Melo ended up with 31 -- 2 more points than Gelo -- and their squad's now 2-0 in their team's "Big Baller Brand Challenge" series exhibitions.

Not bad after being held scoreless in their 2nd pro game -- their first against legit pro competition.

Martin Luther King III Oh, Trust ... My Dad Would be Pissed About 'Shithole' Comment

1/15/2018 11:19 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Martin Luther King Jr.'s son says his father would be "incensed" by President Trump's "shithole" comment ... but MLK III still sees a silver lining.

We got the civil rights leader's oldest son Monday at the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in Washington, D.C., and he weighed in on 45's disparaging remark ... and his father's likely reaction to it.

Perhaps surprisingly, MLK III thinks there can be a positive outcome from Trump's racist sentiment.

Good day to ponder whether his father would be as gracious to the President.

Mark, Donnie Wahlberg We Want to Get Sauced!!!

1/13/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Wahlberg and his brothers are trying to guard their very successful family burger biz by getting legal protection for their secret sauce. 

Wahlburgers restaurant has filed legal docs to corner the market on Wahl Sauce. For those who've taken a bite of a Wahlburger, the sauce is what separates it from other burgers ... kind of like a Big Mac. 

The chain not only wants to protect what's on the bun, it wants to market the sauce in bottles.

Wahlburgers is already in 14 states and Canada. Unclear if the sauce will only be sold inside their restaurants or your local market. Oh, oh, ohhhh ... the right sauce. (Sorry Donnie, couldn't resist!)

Ryan Lochte's officially touched the wall ... of matrimony -- he and Kayla Rae Reid just got hitched.

According to the marriage license, obtained by TMZ, Ryan and Kayla had a courthouse wedding Tuesday in Gainesville, Florida. Ryan's dad, Steven, was a witness to the ceremony.

We broke the story ... the 6-time Gold medalist picked up his marriage paperwork last week and we were told "marriage is imminent." Turns out, it was very imminent.

The couple got engaged in October 2016 on top of a mountain and had their first child together -- their son, Caiden -- in June.

Khloe Kardashian Watch How It's Done, Sisters ... 'Flash' Dances in Mall!!!

1/12/2018 10:14 AM PST

Kim Kardashian was taken by surprise by a flash mob Thursday, but what's even more head-turning is her very pregnant sister, Khloe, jumping in on the routine ... IN HEELS!

Kim, Kourtney and Khloe hit up the Topanga Mall in the San Fernando Valley. Cameras were with them, so they were likely shooting for 'KUWTK.'

We're told Kourtney and Khloe organized the dancers as a surprise for Kim. And while Kourtney looks smokin' hot nailing all the moves, it's hard to ignore Khloe joining in the action. 

She's over 6 months along with Tristan Thompson's baby, but still getting down. 

Impressive, mama!

Harvey Weinstein Ex-Wife Claims He's Crying Poverty ... Can't Pay Child Support

1/12/2018 9:33 AM PST

Harvey Weinstein's low on cash flow, so he's telling his ex-wife he can't afford to pay child support for a year ... maybe more ... according to her, anyway.

Eve Chilton made the claim in docs submitted when she tried to get a one-time advance payment to cover $5 million in child support Weinstein still owes for their 3 daughters. The judge denied that request, citing Weinstein's track record of not missing any previous payments.

As we reported ... Chilton, who divorced Weinstein in 2004, was worried their daughters wouldn't get the money because Weinstein was using it to fight numerous lawsuits.

The timing's interesting here -- Weinstein just reached a divorce settlement this week with his most recent ex-wife, Georgina Chapman ... reportedly in the $15 to $20 million range.

He'll still have to make regular child support payments, as scheduled, to Chilton.

Rick Fox Time To Listen To Lonzo Ball And Tune Out LaVar

1/12/2018 7:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Rick Fox says people are listening to the wrong Ball ... telling TMZ Sports it's time to ignore what LaVar is talking about, and let Lonzo be the mouthpiece of the BBB empire.

When we got the Laker great at LAX and asked him about LaVar, he seemed really fatigued with the Big Baller ... and lobbied us for a change.

"LaVar says a lot of stuff. What does his son say? I want to hear from his son."

Fox goes on to say he thinks there's a lot Lonzo has to say, seeming to reject the notion that the Lakers rookie is content to let his dad have all the press.

Maybe Fox is right ... but as long as LaVar is front page news and Lonzo keeps it quiet, this is the way it is.

If you don't like it, maybe you ain't a Big Baller.

Chris Brown Monkey Business Could Get Him Prosecuted

1/12/2018 1:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown got himself a pet monkey -- but never got a permit to keep her -- so now he's sans monkey and could face criminal charges ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported ... CB took heat last month after posting a pic of his 3-year-old daughter Royalty holding the baby capuchin monkey named Fiji, because people thought it was a danger to her and belongs in the wild. Chris told everyone to chill.

According to law enforcement ... several folks notified the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, who opened an investigation.

Turns out Chris never got a permit for the exotic pet, so authorities got a search warrant but before Chris' house got raided, he voluntarily agreed to surrender the animal.

According to our sources ... CB could be charged with having a restricted species without a permit, a misdemeanor, that carries a maximum of 6 months in jail. The case has been turned over to the L.A. City Attorney.

Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ, "As I leave my office in Downtown L.A. and walk past people sleeping on the street on my way to defend people charged by the City Attorney with selling medical marijuana ... now spending taxpayer money on investigating monkey business, this completes the circle on his absurdity."

As for Fiji ... she's fine.

Paul Wall United Screwed My Friend's Pension ... When They Fired Him

1/11/2018 9:36 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Paul Wall can't fathom how United Airlines fired one of his closest friends after 16 years of service ... and in the process put the guy's financial future at risk.

If you haven't heard ... the rapper on Tuesday fired off a couple of tweets claiming United fired a close family friend -- and a combat disabled veteran at that -- for allowing Paul to fly for free using his corporate friends and family privilege. Paul says the friend's been with United for 16 years and was close to retirement.

The rapper tells us he's done it plenty of times, but thinks the airline started digging into his flight history after he dissed them on Twitter. He feels horrible how things went down for his friend.

United tells TMZ, "We restrict this benefit to leisure travel. Mr. Wall used these travel benefits for business purposes, which our policy does not permit." Paul maintains he did nothing wrong.
