Kimbo Slice's Son: 'My Father Touched a Lot of People'

6/9/2017 8:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kimbo Slice's son says his father would have loved the outpouring of love and support he got on the 1 year anniversary of his death ... with Baby Slice telling us, "I know he touched a lot of people."

The backyard fighting legend -- who went on to fight in UFC and Bellator -- passed away on June 6, 2016 due to heart issues. He was only 42.

"I guess it went by so fast for me," Kevin "Baby Slice" Ferguson tells TMZ Sports.

Clearly, Kimbo made an impression on Baby Slice -- he's an MMA fighter too and just racked up his first pro victory at Bellator 179 back in May.

Earth, Wind & Fire Blue Ivy a Shining Star? Not a Lock, But She Has a Headstart

6/9/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of Earth, Wind & Fire's OG members says Blue Ivy Carter is not a shoo-in for stardom, despite her lineage ... but it sure helps.

We got Ralph Johnson at LAX, and talked to him about Blue doing her thang to "September" during her ballet recital. He says she put on one hell of a show, but that doesn't mean it's time to start engraving her name on Grammys just yet.

As Ralph put it ... only time, and the public, will tell if she can follow in Mom and Dad's footsteps.

But let's keep it real -- if Blue Ivy wants stardom ... Bey and Jay will make sure she gets it.

Katherine Jackson Resurfaces at Mel's Diner ... Side of Freedom, Please?

6/8/2017 4:32 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Katherine Jackson resurfaced late Wednesday night at a famous West Hollywood diner, setting off alarms for some very worried family members.

Katherine was seen leaving Mel's Diner Wednesday night -- at 11 PM, no less -- with 1 bodyguard and 2 women.

Katherine hasn't been seen in public since March, when she returned from her extended stay in London.

Some members of the Jackson family are very concerned because they said the matriarch would NEVER end up close to midnight on the Sunset Strip at a diner. They note Katherine loved her life when she was living at her Calabasas home with a chef hired by the Michael Jackson estate.

They say she would have scoffed at diner food, and think she's been pressured and fooled by certain members of Jackson's family to bolt from the fold and help them squeeze money from the estate.

Our sources say Katherine is now living in a hotel near her Calabasas home, and they believe it's all the doing of certain family members who want to keep Katherine isolated ... especially from her grandchildren.

Whatever's going on ... it seems odd an 87-year-old woman would have a hankering for Mel's so late at night.

Draymond Green's Mom Heated Exchange with Cavs Fan ... Cops Involved

6/8/2017 8:49 AM PDT

9:33 AM PT -- Draymond's mom says she made peace with the Cavs fan.

"Everyone apologized so it's all good," she tweeted.

"If they would watch the game and enjoy it instead of worshipping it. They would be fine!"More mama drama at Game 3 ... this time, it was Draymond Green's mother who was in the middle of a hostile situation with a Cavs fan -- and security rushed in to break it up.

It all went down right after the game ended -- you can see Mary Babers in the Golden State Warriors jacket getting into it with the Cavs fan.

Unclear what was said to set the whole thing off ... but things got heated and there was some shoving. You can see Cleveland PD officers who were working the event got involved and broke it up. 

You never see Mary get physical. You do see fans holding her back. 

No arrests were made. We reached out to Draymond's camp for comment. So far, no word back.

6/8/2017 6:30 AM PDT

Kevin Durant's mother was FIRED UP after her son stuck the dagger in Cleveland Wednesday night -- and went crazy (in a good way) with Steph Curry's mom right after the game!

This video is GREAT -- Wanda Durant turns to Sonya Curry and screams, "They tried to give it to 'em but they wouldn't take it!"

It's awesome.

By the way, we spoke with Wanda earlier this week and she told us watching KD play now is just like when she watched him play as a kid ... same emotions.

Only now, he's killin' LeBron James

Oasis' Noel Gallagher Screw Liam & Manchester ... I'm on Vacanza!

Kendrick Lamar Car Company Has His Back 'Cheap' Car for Sister Was Smart!

6/6/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kendrick Lamar is finally getting support for his decision to NOT buy his sister a baller new car -- of course, his backer is the company that made the umm ... frugal whip.

Kendrick took heat on social media for buying his younger sister a brand new Toyota Camry as a graduation present. In true "no good deed goes unpunished" fashion ... haters accused the multi-millionaire of going cheap on his kin.

But Toyota thinks K-Dot will have the last laugh.

A rep told us Toyota sees the choice as more "smart and thoughtful" than cheap, since Camry has a good track record for longevity and reliability. Plus, they're made in the U.S. -- so props for buying American! Sorta.

All good points, but Floyd Mayweather's kid would say ... so is a Benz.

We kid. Props to Kendrick, and his sis, for practicing what he preaches.


Josh Duggar Police Hurt Me Too with Release Of Molestation Reports

6/5/2017 1:30 PM PDT

Josh Duggar now wants his own pound of flesh from the police and city officials 4 of his sisters are suing for releasing investigators' reports on his molestation case.

Duggar filed documents to join the lawsuit Jill, Jessa, Jinger and Joy filed last month. In his docs, Josh says cops assured him his 2006 interview discussing the molestation of his sisters would remain private. He says since he wasn't charged, the information wouldn't have gone public ... if the reports weren't released to In Touch magazine.

Duggar says once the story came out, it caused him mental anguish and humiliation. He played up the sympathy card in the docs, saying he was "victimized and forced to relieve the painful and difficult circumstances of a traumatic experience as a juvenile."

Just like his sisters ... Josh wants damages from Springdale, Arkansas police, city and county prosecutors and the In Touch publishers.

Liam did show up, and even performed with Coldplay -- despite having dissed Chris Martin in the past -- but his bro, Noel Gallagher, was noticeably absent. Hours after the concert, Liam went HAM on Noel, saying he should have gotten "on a f**king plane and play your tunes for the kids you sad f**k."

The attack on Noel makes it seem like an Oasis reunion show will NOT be in the offing. Liam tweeted as much to a fan.

Noel's yet to say a peep, but his baby mama took a shot at Liam, tweeting (then deleting) ... "Maybe he’s busy looking after his kids and the daughter you’ve never even met!"

There's only so much Ariana Grande can do.6/6/17 7:30 AM PT -- Chris Martin of Coldplay saw things differently, and tweeted a thank-you to Noel Gallagher for "being there in spirit and for lending us those incredible songs."
