The Rock Hooks Up 'Hip' Dad ... Enjoy Your Cadi!!!

3/19/2018 1:40 PM PDT

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson admits he's got daddy issues -- as in, getting his dad a brand new whip ... on doctor's orders.

His father, retired pro wrestler Rocky Johnson, posed next to a shiny brand new Cadillac Escalade ... which Dwayne purchased. As The Rock explained, "My pops just had his hip replaced and called me and said 'Hey Mr. D the surgeon really feels like I should have a bigger car since my hip rehab.' I cut my dad off and just started laughing because I knew what he was hustling for."

Dwayne says he told the senior WWE legend to pick out whatever car he wants ... and a few hours later, he sent this pic flossing next to his brand new ride. 

He admits his dad used to kick his ass around the gym, and says, "I hated it when I was a kid, but grateful for it as a man." Dwayne called the SUV a small thank-you for the ass kickings his father gave him in the gym when he was growing up. 

It's hip to be The Rock's Pop. 

Charles Manson Pastor Officiated Funeral With Clear Conscience

3/19/2018 12:54 PM PDT

The pastor who presided over Charles Manson's funeral had ZERO qualms about it because he was comforting a follower of Christ -- Manson's grandson, NOT the mass murderer.

Pastor Mark Pitcher of Porterville Church of the Nazarene tells TMZ ... ordinarily he'd have a massive conflict performing a funeral service for someone with Manson's homicidal past, but he made an exception because Manson's grandson, Jason Freeman, is a Christian who was in need of a pastor.

Pitcher tells us the funeral director approached him last week with what he called a "unique situation." He says he agreed to meet Jason and his wife, Audrey, the day before the service.

Pitcher says he told Jason he wouldn't touch certain aspects of Manson's life -- namely the Manson Family murders. He did read a few scriptures, at Jason's request, during the ceremony.

TMZ broke the story ... Manson had an open casket funeral over the weekend. He was immediately cremated when the service ended and his ashes spread along a nearby creek bed.

Charles Manson Open Casket Funeral Then Burnt to a Crisp

3/19/2018 10:31 AM PDT

Charles Manson had his final hurrah Saturday during a memorial service that ended in fire.

Manson's body was front and center at a service held in Porterville, CA. We're told the body was decomposing badly, and needed heavy makeup and gloves to cover the deterioration. He died 4 months ago but his body was put on ice until a judge decided who would take control of it.

Approximately 30 people showed up at the funeral home. His grandson, Jason Freeman -- the man who won control over the body -- spoke at the service, as did a Manson follower.

Manson's service didn't end with a burial. His body was cremated and his ashes were spread along a nearby creek bed in a forest. Apparently it was a windy day, because the ashes blew back on the guests.  

We're told the attendees included Manson's former fiancee, Afton Burton, and former Manson Family member Sandra Good.

As TMZ first reported ... Manson -- the mastermind behind one of the most heinous murder sprees in American history -- died of natural causes back in November 2017. He was 83.

Breaking News

Here's the latest edition of "Kevin Hart vs. Height" ... where the actor/comedian tries to slam dunk using a trampoline as his launchpad -- and it's a struggle. 

Kevin's attempted dunk sesh went down at one of the Sky Zones around L.A. over the weekend ... where it looks like the Hart fam was out celebrating the 13th birthday of his daughter, Heaven.

The NBA super-fan didn't want the kiddos to have all the fun, so Hart stepped up to the glow-in-the-dark Sky Slam ... and repeatedly got knocked on his ass while his wife, Eniko, yucked it up.

But, Kev didn't let the verticality shaming get him down ... and eventually got up for a 2-handed jam!!

Hart of a champion. 

Britney Spears K-Fed's Making a Shameless Money Grab

3/19/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Britney Spears' dad, Jamie, is super upset at Kevin Federline, who called him pleading for more child support when, in fact, all he wants is to jump on her gravy train.

Sources connected to Britney tell TMZ, last Friday K-Fed called Jamie and said he was in a financial bind and wanted to talk about raising his child support. TMZ broke the story K-Fed has been pulling in $20k a month for child support for years, but he now says it's not enough.

We're told Jamie was suspicious and asked Kevin where the $20k was going, but Kevin hedged.

Our sources say, last week, Jamie got a letter from Kevin's lawyer, asking him if they could sit down and talk. They did indeed have a talk, and we're told the lawyer explained now that 12-year-old Sean and 11-year-old Jayden have gotten older, Kevin needed more than $20k.

We're told Jamie pressed again, asking what the kids needed that they weren't getting. We're told Kevin's lawyer wouldn't answer, but said his client needed the means to take care of the 2 kids at Britney's level. Jamie fired back ... Britney's taking care of the kids the way she always did -- nothing's changed.

Our sources say the lawyer repeatedly talked about Britney's recent successes -- particularly her sold-out Vegas shows -- saying she was making a lot more money. We're told Jamie kept pushing back, saying Britney's success has nothing to do with the needs of the children, and his daughter wasn't responsible for taking care of Kevin and his other families.

Britney has paid Kevin a fortune in various forms of support over the years. When they divorced in 2007, she cut him a check for $1.3 million and he got spousal support for several years and continues to get child support.

We're told Kevin and his lawyer never named a figure and never gave a single example of the children's unmet needs. 

Ex-NFL Star Mark Gastineau He's Sick 'Cause of Karma Says Ex-Wife Lisa Gastineau

3/19/2018 6:24 AM PDT


That's why ex-Jets star Mark Gastineau's life is in shambles -- so says his ex-wife, Lisa Gastineau

We got the reality TV star leaving Craig's in L.A., and asked if she had heard Mark's recent radio interview ... where he painfully described how playing football has destroyed his mind and his body

Lisa wasn't feeling ANY sympathy for her former boo -- saying it all comes down to the K-word. Guessing she still hasn't forgotten about Mark allegedly cheating on her with Brigitte Nielsen back in the day.

FYI -- 61-year-old Mark has previously said he's been diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's ... and now he's in the process of suing the NFL.

Lisa, meanwhile, has been killin' it as a reality fashionista on shows like "Extra," "The View" and 'ET.'

Tommy Lee Battery Case Against Son Headed to D.A.'s Office

3/18/2018 12:50 AM PDT

Tommy Lee's reached the point of no return -- even if he changes his mind about wanting his son, Brandon Lee, prosecuted for battery ... the case is headed to the D.A.'s office.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. is on the verge of wrapping up its investigation into the incident where Brandon punched his dad during an argument. Tommy claims he got sucker-punched, but Brandon says it was self-defense.  

We're told Brandon's been cooperating throughout the investigation. Once the Sheriff kicks the case to the D.A.'s office, Brandon will find out what, if any, charges he's facing.

TMZ broke the story ... Tommy wants to go forward with a criminal complaint, and even got a restraining order against his son. Tommy's fiancee, Brittany Furlancalled 911 after the punch and said Brandon knocked Tommy unconscious.

Pamela Anderson claims Tommy's heavy boozing is to blame for the altercation ... but he says Brandon's just ungrateful.

Jay-Z and Beyonce Our Daughter's a Baller at the Art Auction!!!

3/18/2018 7:08 AM PDT

Blue Ivy is only 6, but she's already wheeling and dealing with the best of them.  

Beyonce and Jay-Z took their daughter to the Wearable Art Gala Saturday night in L.A. Grandma Tina Knowles Lawson and her hubby Richard organized the event, which raised dough for a new, non-profit art and performance complex.

A piece of art clearly caught Blue Ivy's eye because she held up her little sign and threw down a $19k bid.  It's unclear if Blue Ivy was the highest bidder, but she sure acted determined and that's gotta count for something.  

Truth be told ... it looks like Jay wasn't into the piece so much, because he tried to gently put his daughter's hand down. Even if she scored the piece, we're guessing Jay and Bey could afford it.

Blue Ivy and her mom wore matching, futuristic gold dresses to the event.  

Kim Kardashian Chicago West ... Unfiltered

3/17/2018 10:15 AM PDT

Kim Kardashian's finally introduced the world to Chicago West ... WITHOUT any added social media filters.

Kim and Kanye's baby is just a couple days older than 2 months, but this is the first time she's been seen in her natural state -- no mouse ears, dog nose, flower headdress or anything added for effect.

But don't worry about Kim abandoning filters altogether ... she posted a vid of Chicago later with plenty of them.

It's interesting -- Kim chose to use Instagram instead of Snapchat for this reveal. Remember, Kylie possibly cost the companies millions when she posted about not using Snapchat anymore ... but later made it up to them.

Kardashians Save Watts Empowerment Center ... It's For the Kids

3/17/2018 7:07 AM PDT

The Kardashians have a deep connection to L.A., and it manifested itself in a big way Friday when the fam rescued a 24-hour community center that was about to shut its doors because of a lack of funding.

Kris, Kim, Kourtney and Corey Gamble were on hand Friday as they received "The Key to Our Hearts" for saving the center. It was about to close its doors because of nationwide budget cuts ... Watts was being hit especially hard and needed private funding to survive.

We're told they donated over $100,000 dollars and built an entire new community center equipped with a basketball court, full kitchen, new TV's, and more than 20 new Apple laptops for the learning center. 

Kris wants badly to raise money to build a baseball diamond and grass field so the children will have something fun and meaningful to do. The Community Center has been a safe haven in an area where gangs are strong.

We're told Kris is setting her sights on building a new playground for the kids on a huge piece of property near the Center. 

Kudos to the Kardashians. 

Tommy Lee No More Fat Lip After Fight with Son

3/16/2018 6:26 PM PDT

Tommy Lee still might not be over getting punched by his son ... but at least it looks like his face is back to normal.

The retired rock star was spotted out in Woodland Hills Friday -- with his fiancee Brittany Furlan -- for the first time since he was allegedly attacked by his son, Brandon, and left unconscious and bleeding on his bedroom floor. Tommy had a smoke in his car while Brittany hopped out with some paperwork.

We broke the story ... Tommy's looking to move forward with his criminal complaint against Brandon for battery -- at least for now.

As we reported ... Brandon insists he was acting in self-defense, claiming his dad was drunk and lunged at him during a heated argument over comments Tommy made about his mom, Pamela Anderson.

Tommy denies his drinking had anything to do with it.

3/16/2018 7:45 AM PDT

Eric and Lara Trump looked sullen Thursday at a crêpe restaurant in Aspen ... just as Donald Trump Jr.'s wife filed for divorce.

Eric and Lara grabbed some grub at Crêperie du Village during an early night out.

As we reported, Eric's brother Donald couldn't make his marriage work, in large part because Vanessa hated politics and the public eye. We're told the last straw was when someone sent an envelope containing white powder to their home.

In sharp contrast, Lara loves politics and the spotlight ... she's a senior adviser in Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign.
