Justin Bieber Sweet Vacay with His 'Proud' Mama

1/18/2018 11:15 AM PST

Justin Bieber's not only reconciled with his mother ... he's carved out some quality time with her in the tropical paradise of the Maldives.

The Biebs and his mom, Pattie Mallette, are vacationing together, which is a big deal. They've been estranged for years, and only recently started reuniting. Based on Pattie's own words ... it's going very well.

She posted this pic and gushed ... "I'm so proud of the amazing young man you are, and the young man you are becoming. None of us are perfect and never will be, (so we will always need patience and grace for each other), but your genuine growing relationship with Jesus is evident in the choices you are making daily and the good 'fruit' you bear. I admire your character and integrity."

Since canceling his Purpose Tour, in part to focus on his religion, Justin's reconciled with Selena Gomez ... and now his mom.

There's a definite pattern.

Ex-NBA Player Sebastian Telfair Hit with Restraining Order ... Car-Smashing Rampage

1/18/2018 9:37 AM PST
Breaking News

Sebastian Telfair -- former NBA point guard -- has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from his estranged wife and kids after she claims he went on a violent window-smashing rampage at their home. 

Samantha Telfair filed court docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, claiming Sebastian showed up to her home in Irvine, CA on Jan. 12 and went nuclear on the doorbell when he realized she wasn't home. 

32-year-old Telfair began cussing like crazy and kicking the door -- even when the couple's two young kids came out of the house and begged him to stop. 

When Samantha finally got home, Sebastian approached her aggressively -- but she was able to get into the house. Instead, Samantha claims, Sebastian bashed in the front windshield of her car. 

Cops were called and an emergency restraining order was issued against Sebastian. 

Samantha says she's worried about Sebastian's overall mental health --  saying he's threatened to kill himself and has "become increasingly hostile, unstable and violent."

She also gave police a photo of the guns officials confiscated from Sebastian during an arrest in NY back in June. 

A judge granted a temporary restraining order against Telfair. There's a hearing in the matter set for next month. 

Kris Jenner Drops Over $10k on Baby Gear ... For Kim & Kanye's New Girl

1/18/2018 9:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kris Jenner doesn't scrimp on her grandkids, especially not for the newest Kardashian girl -- for whom she just dropped over $10,000 ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us Kris hit up baby boutique Petit Tresor in WeHo late last month and spent at least $10k on some pricey baby merch for Kim and Kanye's latest bundle of joy.  

We're told Kris knew the baby would be due in January, so she wanted to get her order in early since a lot of this stuff is custom-made and would take a while to get delivered.

As for the order itself ... sources say Grandma Jenner bought a roughly $3,000 silver cross pram for kids -- which, we're told, was intended for North to push her new little sister around in. She also picked up a handcrafted Anaiza wooden crib for at least $6,000.

Last, but not least ... sources say Kris snapped up a bunch of custom baby outfits with rose applique for ALL of her grandkids at a couple hundred bucks each.

Like we said ... never scrimps.

1/18/2018 6:50 AM PST

John Stamos ain't got daddy issues ... never mind he's gonna be a first-time papa.

We got the "Full House" star at LAX with his pregnant fiancée, Caitlin McHugh, in tow and wondered what it'll be like to a first-time father at 54. Our photog might've touched a nerve there, so he pivoted and then asked ... if his TV dad skills will translate in real life.

John cracked a joke, but the future DILF revealed he's actually really great around babies.

Have mercy!!!

Taylor Swift's alleged stalker is facing new charges after prosecutors say they uncovered a new batch of creepy emails he sent, threatening to kill her entire family ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Frank Andrew Hoover sent the new emails to Taylor's father, Scott, between May 2015 and Oct. 2016. According to the 122-page indictment one terrifying email read, "Decided that we are going to end all the Swifts on one day because I can’t stand that virus shit your daughter spread." 

Others included ..."The evil family of devils: Scott, Austin, Taylor, Andrew. Sincerely, the end real son of god" -- and, "This article is not a joke and is why god is going to burn them into the desert for me." 

Another simply said, "Go to hell, Swift."

Hoover also allegedly told Scott, "Enjoy the brain aneurysms and death."

As we reported ... Hoover was arrested for violating a restraining order by allegedly tailing Taylor while she was in Texas back in 2016. 

The new charges are for stalking and repeatedly violating a restraining order.

EXCLUSIVE

The Game's father, George Taylor, died unexpectedly in his sleep Wednesday morning ... TMZ has learned. 

We're told a family member found him unresponsive in his home in Apple Valley, CA ... and alerted a neighbor who called 911. The Fire Dept. arrived at 8:30 AM this morning. He was unresponsive, and transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. 

We're told, at this point, It doesn't appear there's any foul play. The coroner's office has George's body now, and is investigating. 

Game rapped about his dad in the song, "Bloody Moon," off one of his albums. The lyrics on the track go, "My father left me when I was seven, at a home / Left me but took his chrome, I looked up and blood was gone / Man, fuck it, guess in the world I'm all alone."

They've had an off/on relationship since Game's been an adult. It's unclear what the status of their relationship was recently.

George was 65.

Kanye West just entertained a name suggestion for his new daughter ... and it hits very close to home.

Ye was at his office in Calabasas Wednesday, still beaming with excitement from his and Kim Kardashian's new addition. Yeezy joked he and Kim still hadn't decided on a name for baby #3 ... but when a photog shouted "Donda," Kanye seemed to dig the suggestion, saying, "that's fire."

Darren Criss I'm Playing Versace's Killer as a Person ... Not a Murderer

1/17/2018 10:08 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Darren Criss gave us a peek into the serial killer he's playing in tonight's premiere of 'Gianni Versace: American Crime Story' ... and it sounds like he gave his murderous character some humanity.

Darren was leaving the AOL building in New York City Tuesday, when our photog asked about his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan, who murdered 5 people including Versace before committing suicide.

The actor gave us a hint as to how he's playing him, which probably will not sit well with the members of the Versace family, who have vowed to boycott the series. The family has called the show a "work of fiction."

Fact is ... there's a huge buzz over Ryan Murphy's latest series, which premieres Wednesday on FX.

Lane Kiffin Hires Charlie Weis' 24-Year-Old Son ... As Offensive Coordinator

1/17/2018 7:36 AM PST
Breaking News

Lane Kiffin's new offensive coordinator at Florida Atlantic isn't old enough to have a mid-life crisis.

He's 24 years old ... and he's Charlie Weis' son.

Charlie Weis Jr. is expected to follow in his dad's footsteps and become a big time football coach. He's already got a bunch of experience -- he was an offensive analyst at Alabama from 2015-16 and was a volunteer intern for the Patriots in 2014.

His dad got a massive $12 million contract with Notre Dame in 2004 after winning 4 Super Bowls as part of the Pats coaching staff. After his stint with the Golden Domers, Weis Sr. bounced around with the Kansas City Chiefs and U. of Kansas.

It's no surprise Kiffin's adding a millennial to his staff ... after all, we're talking about the guy who offered a scholarship to a 7th grader.

N.J. Gov Phil Murphy Sworn In Post-Christie Don't Look Down

1/17/2018 7:56 AM PST

Phil Murphy is officially New Jersey's next governor post-Chris Christie -- but, while he was taking his oath ... the guy's oldest kid was busy honoring "Malcolm in the Middle."

Phil's eldest son, Josh Murphy, flashed the OK sign below his waist for the tail end of his father's swearing-in Tuesday -- which means he was playing the infamous Circle Game.

In case you aren't familiar, the game was made famous by the hit 2000s show in which the characters prank each other by making someone look down at a circle formed below the belt ... which then gives 'em the right to punch the poor sap.

Unclear why Josh did it (a bit too old, no?) ... but, technically, he probably owes most of New Jersey a hard sock to the arm. Us included, actually.

Kim Kardashian See This Bod? Cranked Out 3 Babies

Kim Kardashian's body is snapping back in record time! Ditto for her sense of humor. 

Hours after announcing she and Kanye West had a new baby girl -- via surrogate -- Kim posted this ridiculously hot shot of herself with "#momofthree." 

Based on her tongue-in-cheek post, we'd say the new mom is in a great mood.

Still no announcement on a name of the new addition to the fam -- but they had a sweet celebration Tuesday, courtesy of a cake delivery from Grandma Kris.

Hope the cake doesn't ruin Kim's bounce back diet!
