Kim Kardashian OMG, Tyga! So Great to See You!!! What Nasty Breakup?

9/24/2018 6:59 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner's fam has zero beef with her ex-bf, Tyga ... or so it seems after he had a pretty touchy-feely reunion with Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner.

The chance encounter went down Sunday night at Beyoncé and Jay-Z's concert at the Rose Bowl. Kim looked surprised, but happy to see Tyga. Ditto for Kylie's mom.

The happy moment is a little surprising because it's not like Kylie and Tyga had a smooth split. After several breakups and makeups, they parted ways for the final time about 18 months ago. A couple months later she got with Travis Scott and got pregnant ... while Tyga banged Kylie look-alikes.

We don't know if Kylie'd be smiling this much if she were there, but her mom and sis definitely chose peace and love or piss and vinegar -- at least to his face.

Beyoncé really does have magical powers.

Kanye West & Saint Throw 1st Pitch For Chi-Town Showdown

9/23/2018 1:25 PM PDT

Kanye West made the most of his Chicago homecoming week by capping it off with a visit to the mound with his son, Saint, and two tosses to kick off a crosstown classic rubber match.

Ye and Saint were assigned to throw out the first pitch(es) Sunday for game 3 of the Chicago Cubs and White Sox series at Guaranteed Rate Field. Saint pitched first (getting as far as he could) ... and his pops followed up with a throw that made it to home plate.

Just the day before, Kanye took Saint out for a boys night out at The Sugar Factory, where they appeared to be getting their nosh on. Looks like Yeezy didn't want to miss out on a mirror shot with his boy.

Kanye's been in Chicago since at least Monday, and his latest excursions come on the heels of his announcement that he's moving back to his hometown and "never leaving again." We're told he plans to move his Yeezy offices from Calabasas to Chi-Town ... but still maintain his properties in L.A.

No doubt about it ... Kanye thinks about Chicago a little more than now and then these days. 

Arizona Congressman 6 Siblings Endorse Opponent ... 'You Can't Pick Your Family'

9/22/2018 2:36 PM PDT

Every family has their political differences ... but this is on another level.

Rep. Paul Gosar is Arizona's Republican Congressman for the state's Fourth District, but he's up for reelection in November and he's got a bit of an issue -- 6 of his siblings are actively campaigning for his opponent.

In what's sure to be one of the most shocking political ads of the year, 3 of Paul's brothers and 3 of his sisters slam him and voice their support for Democratic nominee, Dr. David Brill.

Rep. Gosar responded Saturday, saying his siblings are just President Trump haters and disgruntled leftists who put politics before family, adding ... "Stalin would be proud."

He also points out that none of the 6 siblings in the ad (he actually has 3 more who don't appear in it) live in Arizona. He added ... "You can't pick your family ... To the six angry Democrat Gosars -- see you at Mom and Dad's house!"

As for why they're speaking out against their brother, Jennifer, Grace, David, Joan, Tim and Gaston Gosar have reportedly stated it's to defend their family's name and honor. Grace has said about Paul, "it would be difficult to see my brother as anything but a racist."

Their mom, Bernadette, sides with the Congressman though, telling the NY Times ... "I share the same philosophy and policies that Paul does. He’s done a hell of a job for Arizona, and they love him.”

Gosar has a history of controversies, including promoting a conspiracy theory that the white supremacists' rally in Charlottesville last year was a plot by the left.

Good luck to this family at Thanksgiving.

Cardi B's Sister Struts What Her Mama Gave Her ... at Milan Fashion Show

9/21/2018 4:11 PM PDT

Cardi B's gonna have to share the spotlight ... but she probably won't mind, 'cause it's with her sister.

Hennessy Carolina just hit the runway at a SUPER big fashion show -- the Philipp Plein Show at Milan Fashion Week. If you're out of the fashion loop ... Philipp Plein's a famous German designer who also has a stake in popular clothing brand Billionaire Couture.

Hennessy -- who has appeared on "Love & Hip Hop" with Cardi -- has done some shows here and there, but this is the first time she's gotten a chance to walk the runway in a massively important show.

Also at the show were Tekashi69 and Chris Brown. They were there to perform. But, no doubt the show belonged to Hennessy. Congrats!! 

Bruno Mars Keeping His Promise to Honor Cardi Nightly on 24K Magic Tour

9/21/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Bruno Mars is a man of his word when it comes Cardi B -- he's honoring her every night on his tour ... with a pretty epic drum solo.  

So far, he's played just over a handful of shows on the 24K Magic World Tour, which Cardi pulled out of last month. Even though she's not there, Cardi's huge hit, "Bodak Yellow," is featured every night when Bruno himself gets behind a drum kit. 

Earlier this week, he played in Philly and the crowd ate up the combo of Cardi's voice and track with Bruno's 90-second solo ... complete with a badass light show.

Remember, Cardi said she needed more time to adjust to motherhood. She also said doctors told her it wouldn't be a good idea to bring baby Kulture on the road ... so she bowed out.

Bruno sent a message to Cardi after her announcement, saying he completely understood putting family first and promised to play "Bodak Yellow" every night in her honor.

Now we know HOW he's working it into the show ... and it's a sweet salute.

'Little Women: Dallas' Star 8 Months Pregnant ... And It's a Boy!!!

9/21/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Emily Fernandez -- aka Right Cheek, half of the rap duo from "Little Women: Dallas" -- is having a baby boy ... and soon!!

Sources close to Emily tell TMZ ... she's 8 months along in her pregnancy, and she's extremely happy and excited. You may recall, Fernandez tragically lost her infant son, JJ, in August 2016 at the age of 3 months ... and had been trying to get pregnant again.

As for the baby daddy ... it's Lontel, Emily's boyfriend from Season 2, and JJ's father as well. The 2 broke up last year over issues with her trying to have another child, and we're told they've had an on-and-off relationship since. She's no longer dating Dallas rapper, Dreadz 448.

We're told Emily and Lontel aren't currently together, but he still plans to be involved in their second son's life.

Our sources say Fernandez used IVF to conceive and choose the gender, but it's unclear if her baby will be a little person or not. That's unknown until birth ... which is quickly approaching.

NBA's Richard Jefferson Dad Killed In Drive-By Shooting

9/20/2018 11:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The father of NBA star Richard Jefferson was killed in a drive-by shooting in Compton on Wednesday evening ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Law enforcement tells us ... 65-year-old Richard Jefferson Sr. was in front of a liquor store in a primarily residential area around 6:52 PM when a vehicle rolled up and someone inside opened fire. 

Jefferson Sr. was struck multiple times in the torso. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

Sources say Jefferson Sr. was with 2 other men at the time of the shooting. It's unclear if Jefferson Sr. was the target. 

We're told the L.A. Sheriff's Dept. is investigating. 

Jefferson was born in South Central. His mother and father split when he was very young and his mom took him to Phoenix, where she raised him with her new husband. 

Richard Jr. went on to have a solid NBA career -- winning an NBA title with the Cleveland Cavs in 2016. 

We reached out to Richard's camp for comment. So far, no word back. 

Meghan Markle I Can Always Count on My Mom!!! Visits for Cookbook Launch

9/20/2018 9:36 AM PDT

Meghan Markle's mom came flying to her daughter's side for the Duchess of Sussex's first solo project this week, and the timing of her visit couldn't be more perfect.

Doria Ragland joined Meghan and Prince Harry Thursday at a London event to launch a new cookbook for a communal kitchen Meghan is supporting. She wrote the foreword for the book.

Recent reports say Meghan is feeling kinda lonely as a new member of the Royal Family -- so, a visit from Mom would probably help cure the blues. That's also why some outlets are speculating Doria might eventually move to London. 

Based on the way Meghan was looking at Doria before and during the event ... we're guessing she'd love to have mama bear close.

Interestingly, Princess Diana famously struggled with loneliness after marrying Prince Charles.

Sooo ... Doria to the rescue?

Allman Bros' Dickey Betts In Critical Condition After Accident ... Will Undergo Brain Surgery

9/19/2018 6:07 PM PDT

Dickey Betts -- one of the founding members of The Allman Brothers Band -- has been hospitalized after suffering a head injury at his home in Sarasota, Florida.

Betts was playing with the family dog in his backyard Monday when he slipped and cracked his head in a "freak accident," causing bleeding from the brain ... according to a statement shared on his band's website and social media.

Dickey's reportedly been sedated and is listed in critical but stable condition, and is scheduled for brain surgery Friday to relieve swelling.

Betts' wife, Donna, and his children are by his side, and Donna says ... "Dickey is a notorious fighter and he is displaying that now!”

The legendary musician is best known as a singer and lead guitarist for The Allman Bros., and he's also the songwriter of 2 of their biggest hits -- "Jessica" and "Ramblin' Man."

He was currently touring with his Dickey Betts Band, but had to cancel shows last month due to a mild stroke. According to his manager, he was recovering well and was excited to get back on stage for scheduled gigs in November.

Due to his accident, those shows have now been canceled as well.

Get well, Dickey!

Demi Lovato's Mom Wasn't Sure She'd Survive But Demi's Happy and Healthy Now

9/19/2018 9:05 AM PDT

Demi Lovato's mother says she was terrified for days her daughter was going to die, and she believes it was only the prayers of Demi's fans that saved her life.

Dianna De La Garza talked about the OD for the first time Tuesday during an interview with Newsmax TV -- and described the moment she rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital and saw Demi. Dianna stood by her bedside and said, "Demi, I'm here. I love you" and Demi responded, "I love you too."

She says it was absolutely touch-and-go for several days -- "We just didn't know for 2 days if she was going to make it." Demi's mom thanked the doctors, but added, "The reason she's alive today is because of the millions of prayers that went up that day."

The good news is ... Dianna says Demi is doing very well in rehab and feeling happy and healthy. 

TMZ broke the story ... Demi suffered an OD in July after taking "aftermarket" pills that were supplied by Brandon Johnson. Although he's dodging charges in Demi's case, there's a warrant out for his arrest on a different drug case.

Julie Chen Staying On as 'Big Brother' Host

9/19/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Julie Chen will remain the host of 'Big Brother' because CBS won't ask her to go and she wants to stay ... TMZ has learned.

CBS insiders tell TMZ the network does not want to punish Julie for her husband Les Moonves' alleged misdeeds, so she will finish the current season and the plan is for her to return, with one big IF. The IF is bringing the show back for another season. The ratings are still good and the all-important demos are strong, so renewal is all but certain.

As for whether Julie wants back ... the answer is YES. Sources connected to Julie tell TMZ, she will absolutely finish the season and wants to return for future seasons.

Julie announced Tuesday she was leaving "The Talk." Our sources say it was all her decision -- CBS put NO pressure on her to leave.

It makes sense Julie opted for 'BB' over "The Talk" for 2 reasons. First, the 'BB' shooting schedule is less demanding than "The Talk" so it gives her more time to spend with her husband and son -- something she says is a priority.

Perhaps more significant ... "The Talk" is a topical show, and sexual harassment is a staple, which would make for uncomfortable conversation. "Big Brother" is more scripted and doesn't get as personal.

Short story ... she's coming back to "Big Bro."

Breaking News

There's a good chance Odell Beckham's dad came home to a Shaq-sized sock on his door in college ... 'cause the Giants superstar says the two were roommates at LSU!!

OBJ revealed the wild fact to Kevin Hart while taking an ice bath on K.H.'s "Cold As Balls" YouTube show ... admitting the room no doubt smelled "terrible."

It's a crazy story ... but did you also know Odell's dad also played football at LSU while Shaq was ballin' on the hardwood??

It's true ... dude scored seven touchdowns in three seasons!!

By the way, Odell's mom ran track at LSU as well.

It all makes sense now why OBJ's pretty good at football, huh? 

Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin Not Married ... Despite Uncle Alec's Emmy Night Comment

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are not married, according to multiple sources directly connected to both, despite what Hailey's uncle, Alec Baldwin, said.

Alec told "Access Hollywood" Monday night, "They just went off and got married. They went ahead and did it without listening to anyone."

Our Justin and Hailey sources say it's just not so ... they have not tied the knot.

As we reported, Justin and Hailey got a marriage license last week at a New York City courthouse, but did not seal the deal.

After reports incorrectly stated the couple tied the knot, Hailey tweeted, "I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I'm not married yet!"

As we reported, they now have 60 days to use the license and take their vows, but as of this post they have not done so.
