Muhammad Ali's Son Stopped Again At Airport Claims Religious Profiling

3/11/2017 7:11 AM PST
Breaking News

Muhammad Ali's son was stopped and questioned again at another airport ... and his lawyer says  the TSA is lying by trying to minimize the incident.

Muhammad Ali, Jr. was at Reagan National Airport Friday when he tried checking in for a flight at an airline counter.  Ali's lawyer says a computer check flagged Ali and someone who needed to ante up more info about him.  The lawyer says the agent wouldn't accept Ali's Illinois ID, and then put the boxer's son on the phone with Homeland Security.

The lawyer says the call lasted 20 minutes.  Once Ali handed over his passport to confirm his identity, the lawyer says Homeland security cleared him.

TSA says the delay was not 20 minutes -- only 11, adding Ali was never "detained."

Ali was held a month ago for several hours by immigration at a Florida airport ... he and his lawyer say it's clear it's because Ali is a Muslim.

Breaking News

NFL star DeAndre Hopkins says his mom was blinded and physically scarred for life in a brutal domestic violence incident ... and he's sharing his story with high school kids.

Hopkins was the guest speaker at Wisdom High School in Houston, TX, where he recalled the terrible day when he was 12 years old and his mother was the victim of an acid attack. The assault left her blind in both eyes and caused serious damage to one side of her face. 

The Houston Texans WR says his mother has never seen him play a pro football game as a result of the attack. 

DeAndre's point was to show the students what can happen when an abusive relationship spirals out of control. He advised the kids how to identify warning signs and how to help if someone they know is in danger. 

Hopkins is an advocate for AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse) which has operated in Houston for almost 40 years.

Lakers' Jesse Buss On Sibling Drama: 'We're Still Family'

3/6/2017 4:32 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

It's the question everyone wants to know -- with the nasty family power struggle going on with the Lakers ... what's Thanksgiving gonna be like at the Buss house????

That's exactly what we asked the youngest member of the Buss siblings, Jesse Buss -- who co-owns the team along with his 5 older siblings. 

The good news ... despite Jim and Johnny going after Jeanie in court, Jesse says there's still love -- "We're still family at the end of the day."

As for Jeanie's decision to bring Magic Johnson on board, Jesse -- who's also the Lakers’ Asst. General Manager & Director of Scouting -- says he's  pumped. 

"I'm super excited to get to work with a legend like him."

Jeanie Buss Blasts Bro Jim Sucked as Lakers Exec

3/6/2017 10:00 AM PST
Breaking News

Lakers honcho Jeanie Buss came out swinging against her brothers in new court docs -- claiming Jim Buss was a failure in his role with the team and Magic Johnson must undo the "damage" he caused.

Jeanie is clearly furious with her brothers, Jim and Johnny, for trying to oust her as controlling owner of the Lakers -- a role she claims her father, Dr. Jerry Buss, intended her to have for the rest of her life. 

The docs spell out a legal argument for why her brothers have no case to block her from continuing her job -- but then she takes the gloves off when talking about Jim, who she recently 86'd from his job as Lakers Exec. V.P. of Basketball Operations.

"It must be pointed out that Jim has already proven to be completely unfit even in an executive vice president role," Jeanie says. 

She goes on to say if Jim and Johnny are left in charge, they might fire Magic Johnson -- "who has been hired to turn around the damage done by Jim Buss."

Jeanie says she gave Jim "ample time" to prove himself as EVP but he blew it, and now she thinks he's trying to oust her as retaliation for his reassignment to a lesser role with the team. 

Jeanie also says she is dedicated to fixing the Lakers -- which she describes as "the most storied basketball franchise in history."

Jerry Lee Lewis Sues Daughter for Abuse You Drugged Me Up and Holed Me Up!!

3/5/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Lee Lewis is going after his own daughter ... claiming she abused him for years by giving him drug cocktails and isolating him in a moldy house.

The rock 'n' roll legend says in new legal docs ... his daughter, Phoebe, took advantage of him while she managed his career from 2000 to 2012, and schemed to spend his fortune with her husband, Ezekiel Loftin. He says she gave him a "heavy cocktail of psychotropic drugs" to keep him under her control.

According to the docs ... Phoebe forced her father to go on grueling tours despite his poor health. Lewis says when he wasn't on the road, she kept him cooped up at home in moldy conditions so bad ... he had to wear an oxygen mask.

Lewis sued Phoebe's husband earlier this week for allegedly spending at least $5 million of his money on luxury cars, real estate and plastic surgery, but is now adding his daughter to the suit.

He's suing to get his money back, and to block the couple from using his name or likeness. We reached out to Phoebe ... so far no word back.

Katherine Jackson Proposal For Grandson To Settle Family War

3/3/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Katherine Jackson's fate and fortune may lie in the hands of one of her grandsons ... TMZ has learned.

Trent Jackson, Michael's cousin, and his attorney Ron Rale want TJ Jackson, Michael's nephew, to sit down with Katherine alone and decide who's the victim and who's the villain in what has become a family war.

TMZ broke the story ... Katherine has filed a legal doc claiming Trent has committed elder abuse against her and fleeced her to boot. But, we've now learned Trent and his lawyer have a plan to put the dispute to bed and, at the same time, cast suspicion on the motive of other Jackson relatives.

Rale's proposing that TJ --  the one person whose family loyalty has never been challenged -- sit down with Katherine to discuss the situation at hand. If at the end of the sit-down TJ believes Trent has done harm to Michael's mom, he'll leave for good and if Katherine wants him to stay, he will. 

Trent, we're told, believes TJ's one-on-one with Katherine will not only absolve him of any wrongdoing, in the process he will cast doubt on the motives of other family members ... family members he believes are trying to get him out of the way so they have a clear path to the matriarch's bank account.

Trent and Rale are suspicious of other family members ... especially after a 2012 incident in which Trent and Michael's kids reported Katherine missing, only to learn some of her kids had taken her to Arizona. They essentially called it a kidnapping, saying some family members were trying to brainwash her into challenging Michael's Estate in a money grab.

Michael cut his siblings and his dad out of his will. The Estate pays Katherine a monthly stipend and when she dies the balance of Michael's fortune is divided between his 3 kids and various charities.
