LeAnn Rimes' Stepsons Ivanka's an 'Idiot' Not Presidential Material

1/4/2018 7:57 AM PST

LeAnn Rimes took the fifth when our photog asked about Ivanka Trump's alleged aspirations to become the first female president ... while her stepsons unleashed their own brand of fire and fury.

We got LeAnn, hubby Eddie Cibrian and his 2 kids leaving Staples Center Wednesday night when our guy asked her about a passage in Michael Wolff's new book, 'Fire and Fury,' in which he claims Ivanka flirted with the idea of running for the office currently held by her dad.

LeAnn is mum but her stepsons make their disdain crystal clear.

The White House says the book is garbage -- packed with lies -- and they're trying to get it yanked.

'Little Women: LA' Star Briana Files for Divorce Claims Abuse, Death Threats and Much Worse

1/4/2018 12:50 AM PST

"Little Women: LA" star Briana Renee is divorcing her husband and dropping some heinous accusations against him, including abuse, death threats and bestiality ... TMZ has learned.

Briana filed to divorce Matt Grundhoffer, her husband of more than 2 1/2 years, citing irreconcilable differences. As we first reported, Briana and Matt separated in November. She wants child and spousal support, according to the docs.

She also filed for a restraining order last month and in the docs, obtained by TMZ, Briana says Grundhoffer verbally abused her at least twice in November -- calling her a "c**t" and a "worthless bitch" ... and threatened to take their 1-year-old son, Maverick.

Briana claims Matt is frequently drunk, and threatens violence when he is. For instance, in April 2017 he threatened to "kill everyone in the house" and in June, he implied he was going to kill himself ... according to docs.

Most disturbing are the messages between Grundhoffer and another woman, which Briana claims she found. In the docs, she says they were "sexually explicit and disturbing" ... and allegedly "involved bestiality and proposals of sex acts with minor children, including the proposal of sex acts with Matthew's minor child, age 12, from a previous relationship."

The judge granted the restraining order -- Matt has to stay 100 yards away from Briana and their son. Briana's also been awarded full custody for now. We reached out to Matt ... so far, no word back.

'Teen Mom' Star Mackenzie McKee Mother's Brain Cancer Is Stage 4

Exclusive Details

"Teen Mom 3" star Mackenzie McKee is asking for prayers for her mom after discovering her illness is much worse than they thought -- she's been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer ... TMZ has learned.

A family source tells us Mackenzie's mother, Angie Douthit, had exploratory surgery Wednesday that revealed 5 large lesions covering her brain -- they initially thought it was only 3 -- plus masses in her lungs and several blood clots throughout her body.

Mackenzie said Tuesday the family thought Angie was dealing with bronchitis. After getting the cancer diagnosis she asked for prayers and added, "I’m devastated, I’m angry, I'm shook, I can’t breathe. You are everything. Please pray."

We're told the next step will be radiation treatments, once doctors have the full picture of Angie's cancer.

The news is especially shocking based on how fit and healthy Mackenzie's mom was -- they'd just competed in a diabetes awareness run in November and Angie whooped her.

McKee also called her mom "the healthiest person I know" and said she works out daily, doesn't smoke or drink, and the disease doesn't run in the family.

Prayers up.

LaVar Ball Big Baller Welcome in Lithuania ... MOBBED by Photogs!

Breaking News

LaVar Ball has touched down in Lithuania -- and he's getting mobbed like he's the damn POTUS!!

A hoard of photogs and reporters waited for hours in the Vilnius airport ... and went NUTS for LaVar as he made his grand entrance.

LaMelo and LiAngelo came out after their pops ... and had to fight through a crowd to make their getaway.

There was a celeb sighting too ... kinda. Famous local singer Jurgis Didziulis was also at the airport, jammin' out with his "Welcome to Lithuania" song.

It's gonna be a fun month.

Meghan Markle She Can Still Have a Side Hustle

1/3/2018 9:44 AM PST

Meghan Markle has nothing standing in her way if she ever wants to start a beauty line once she joins the royal family.

Reports surfaced Tuesday that Markle was partnering up with Victoria Beckham on a bio-botox line, but we're told they're completely untrue. 

Palace sources tell us Meghan's future royal status won't prevent her from diving into her own business once she's married to Prince Harry. There are no U.K. laws that prohibit a member of the royal family from having a side hustle. All she has to do is follow the same rules as the normies, and she's good to go.

And, we're told, Royal protocol does not prohibit business ventures by someone in Markle's position. The Countess of Wessex, who married Prince Edward, ran a PR company after becoming a royal fam member. 

Meghan had run her own lifestyle blog, The Tig, but shut it down after 3 years.

Kim Kardashian Our Home Is Now Jewelry Free!!! New Mansion, New Policy

1/3/2018 1:00 AM PST

Kim and Kanye's new mansion -- the one they spent years renovating and finally moved into a few weeks ago -- has its first house rule ... NO JEWELRY ALLOWED!!!

Our Kardashian sources tell us Kim decided to put the policy in place at the Hidden Hills home because she doesn't want it to be a target for thieves. In essence, she's throwing up her version of the bat signal ... NOTHING TO STEAL HERE!

We're told the very few pieces that Kim does still own are being stored elsewhere -- under constant supervision -- with very elaborate security measures to get to it. And despite the lack of jewelry at their new place ... we're told armed security's still on guard 24/7.

The move makes it clear ... the trauma of the Paris robbery is still on Kim and Kanye's minds. Especially with a new baby due this month.

Our sources say if and when Kim does decide to wear jewelry of her own again, it'll be replicas or fakes.. However, we're told if Kim decides to borrow real pieces for an event, it will NOT be allowed in the home ... a stylist will meet with her right before said event and take it back right after.

As we've reported ... there have also been a string of celebrity burglaries over the past year, with 'Real Housewives' Kyle Richards being the most recent victim.

Lesson learned for Kim.

Craig Sager's Daughter Blasts Stepmom 'She Poisoned Our Dad Against Us'

1/3/2018 9:05 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Craig Sager's oldest children are blasting their father's 2nd wife -- claiming she's a shameless gold digger who drove a wedge between the family and ultimately had them cut out of the legendary NBA reporter's will. 

"She's greedy," Kacy Sager wrote ... "She didn't even let us say goodbye to him because she wanted to spend his last day of consciousness alone with him. My brother saved his life & she still tried to poison our father against us."

The rift went public on Tuesday -- when Craig Sager Jr. said he was being pestered by sheriffs and court officials over "a will that myself and my sisters are not only 100% excluded from but do not even have any interest in contesting in the first place."

FYI, Craig Sr. passed away in 2016 after a long battle with cancer. Craig had 3 children from his 1st marriage (Craig Jr., Kacy and Krista) and 2 kids with his 2nd wife Stacy, whom he married in 2001.

But Craig Jr.'s older sister, Kacy, revealed a deeper issue with Stacy. 

"[Craig Sager] left his family for a chick in her 20s, & she spent their whole marriage spending everything he made & driving a wedge between us. And is continuing after his death."

"The issue isn't the will. We never cared about the money. It's that she's trying to keep us away from everything, including the Sager Strong Foundation & the kids, and is making lawyers and sheriffs do her dirty work instead of picking up a phone."

"She has the kids in $30k-a-year private school and made him sell everything to build her a 10-bedroom house and two condos in Orlando."

TMZ Sports obtained a copy of Craig's will -- which lists all 5 of his kids, but only bequeaths his estate to Stacy. The estate includes all money, real estate and hotel and airline miles. 

As for the sheriffs ... it looks like Craig Jr. was served with the will, so he could have an opportunity to object if he wishes. But it's clear, he does not want to go down that road. 

9:40 AM PT -- Craig Jr. tells TMZ Sports ... "I love my dad. I love my family. I am not mad. I am not in a bad place. I am quite fine, loving work and finally taking a breather."

"But I want for myself and my family to move on peacefully and without paranoia over the Sword of Damocles this divorce has dangled over our heads for more than half my life. Enough."

"I shouldn't have Sherrifs knocking on my doors when I'm not in his will or fighting the fact that I'm not. I want to be able to relax without worrying about a Sheriff knocking on my door. That's it."

Paul Sorvino Weinstein Blacklisted My Girl 'I Will Kill That Motherf*****'

1/3/2018 6:30 AM PST

Paul Sorvino seems to prefer street justice to the whole judicial thing ... because he wants revenge against Harvey Weinstein in the worst way.

Sorvino was leaving Bristol Farms in WeHo Tuesday night when we asked about his daughter Mira's claims that she was blackballed by Harvey Weinstein after she rejected his sexual advances and unwanted physical contact.

Paul doesn't mince words, saying a jail cell will be the place Weinstein inevitably calls home, but Paul says there's a silver lining for Harvey ... that Paul won't be able to come after him.

Tamar Braxton Back with Hubby? NOPE!

1/2/2018 5:24 PM PST
Breaking News

Tamar Braxton's making it perfectly clear -- she's NOT back together with her estranged husband ... but says they do agree it's time to protect their son from their public spats.

We broke the story ... Tamar and Vincent Herbert traveled together Tuesday morning. She declared they're still a family, but he made it seem like there was a reconciliation coming when he said, "God is good."

Tamar put the kibosh on that, saying ... "NOPE! Sorry! Not together but since the craziness the other day, we DID agree to create a better environment for son!!"

The "craziness" would be Vincent's Christmas Day arrest, which she says was triggered by booze and jealousy.

Braxton also says this is the last time she and Vincent are going to speak publicly about their split.

Tamar Braxton & Vincent Herbert We're Still Family Fly Together After His Christmas Arrest

1/2/2018 11:19 AM PST

Tamar Braxton and Vincent Herbert traveled TOGETHER Tuesday morning, and declared they're still a family ... even though she had him arrested on Christmas day.

We got 'em at LAX where it looked like there's no animosity. It would be a true holiday miracle if these 2 are really working things out. Remember, Tamar filed for divorce in October -- and says their Christmas dinner got heated due to booze and jealousy. Vince was arrested, and she went on to accuse him of getting an unnamed "whore" pregnant.

Sources close to Vince tell TMZ there is no baby on the way.

So, are they working it out? Depends on who you ask. Tamar's the one who says they're family. But Vince took it one step further saying, "God is good."

Hard to argue with that if these 2 are truly laying down their metaphorical guns, and reconciling.

Breaking News

It's go time ... 16-year-old LaMelo Ball has announced he's leaving for Lithuania today to begin his new career as a pro basketball player! 

Guessing his 19-year-old brother, LiAngelo, will join him on the flight -- they're both expected to make their debut for Prienu Vytautas on January 9. 

Unclear if their father LaVar Ball will join them on the flight -- or stay in the U.S. to run the Big Baller Brand. 

What we do know ... Prienu Vytautas is excited for the Balls -- with head coach Virginijus Seskus telling ESPN he expects the guys to "play a lot" once they touch down.

Kim & Kanye's Son Saint West Hospitalized with Pneumonia

1/2/2018 1:00 AM PST

8:30 AM PT -- Kim just thanked the doctors and nurses who helped Saint, saying, "I just want to thanks every nurse & doctor out there who works so hard around the clock. We are so grateful for you all!"

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's son, Saint West, was hospitalized last week with a bad case of pneumonia ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the 2-year-old was brought to an L.A. area hospital Thursday with pneumonia, and that his parents were with him while he remained hospitalized, sharing overnight duties.

We're told Saint was released on Saturday, so he was checked in for just a couple days. He's at home now, and sources say he's doing well. 

Kim shared a family photo from Christmas just a few days before Saint was admitted.

Happy Holidays

Kim and Kanye also shared a New Year's Eve kiss on Sunday. The hospitalization went down right after her mid-week meet-up with J Lo and A-Rod -- where Kim and co. enjoyed a taco Wednesday party.

Good thing Saint's on the mend ... his new baby sis is supposed to be coming home sometime this month. She'll probably need her big bro to show her the ropes, sniffle free.
