Carrie Fisher Beloved Dog, Gary Caught in Emotional Tug of War

12/10/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Carrie Fisher's French bulldog, Gary, is one of the most popular pooches on the planet, but his public appearances have upset Carrie's family ... TMZ has learned.

As you'll recall ... when Fisher died, Gary went to her assistant, Corby McCoin. There have been numerous stories out that Carrie's daughter, Billie Lourd has the pooch, but it's not true. Corby has had the dog since Carrie died.

Now here's the conflict -- Corby wants to take Gary to various functions, including ComicCons, where people can interact with Gary and somehow feel closer to Carrie. We're told people over at Lucasfilm contacted the folks at ComicCon and asked them to block the appearance, which they did.

There was another event last April in Orlando which held a "Star Wars" celebration. We're told Mark Hamill wanted Gary to come out on stage with him. We're told the P.R. Dept. for "Star Wars" shut it down because Billie didn't want it ... and there have been other failed attempts as well.

Sources connected to Billie tell TMZ ... she and her dad, CAA head Bryan Lourd, fully understand how much Gary meant to Carrie, but when she died Gary was really nothing more than a dog, and they didn't want the animal to define the memory of Carrie ... they felt it cheapened it.

We're also told Bryan asked Corby to delete Gary's Instagram, which has more than 160,000 followers ... again, because he feels it cheapens Carrie's legacy.

We're even told Bryan offered Corby $250 a month in return for not parading Gary around, possibly for money, but Corby declined.

We broke the story ... 'Last Jedi' director Rian Johnson says the upcoming film will pay homage to Fisher's beloved dog, so no matter what -- he's still got some time left in the limelight.

Janet Jackson My Kid's Ridiculously Cute

12/10/2017 7:29 AM PST

Janet Jackson makes adorable kids.

Check out 11-month old Eissa Al Mana, chillin' on the beaches of Miami Beach.  The 51-year-old mama looks fantastic, and you can sorta tell she knows she's carrying something irresistible for the paparazzi.

The kid wore a shirt with the word "Equality" emblazoned on the front and the obligatory Nike hat to make him look baller. 

Janet's in Miami for the latest stop on her "Unbreakable" tour.

Janet has had a rough year, fighting husband Wissam Al Mana over custody.

12/9/2017 3:05 PM PST

Kendall Jenner got to play the cool aunt Friday night ... joining Kourtney Kardashian and her daughter at the ice rink for a festive good time.

Kendall, Kourtney and 5-year-old Penelope met up with Larsa Pippen and her kids for a fun-filled night ice skating at the Lakes at Thousand Oaks. Kourtney reserved it for a 3-hour party, and some of their other famous Calabasas neighbors were also there.

None of the other Kardashian sisters were there, but it sort of makes sense ... Kylie and Khloe are pregnant, and well -- Kim's always busy.

Larsa's been part of the Kardashian crew since moving to L.A. with Scottie back in September and calling off their divorce.

12/8/2017 11:51 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

A home owned by Chris Bosh was the target of a police drug trafficking raid -- with the NBA star's mother named as one of the suspects ... TMZ Sports has learned.

According to official documents obtained by TMZ Sports, the DeSoto Police Dept. raided the home Friday morning after obtaining search warrant in a drug trafficking investigation.

One of the suspects listed on the search warrant is Freida Bosh -- who allegedly lives in the home, which cops believe is owned by her son.

Officials believe crack cocaine and heroin were being trafficked through the home.

We're told no one has been arrested at this point -- but that could be coming soon.

As for Chris, one law enforcement source connected to the case told us, "We don't believe Chris has any connection short of owning the house."

Charles Manson Grandson Files Probate Docs Manson's Body Still On Ice

12/8/2017 10:13 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Charles Manson's grandson has filed legal docs to handle his notorious grandfather's estate and presumably take possession of his body.

Jason Freeman filed the docs asking the court to appoint the guy he's selected to decide how to deal with any assets Manson left behind and how to dispose of his body.

Freeman claims Manson died without a will, and that sets up a legal fight because Michael Channels claims he has a valid will that Manson wrote and appointed him executor. Channels says he developed a friendship with the murderer over the years.

As for Freeman, his dad was Charles Manson Jr., but he understandably changed his name to Charles White. White killed himself in 1993 with a gunshot to the head. 

In the meantime, Manson's body still lies in the custody of Kern County.

12/8/2017 6:04 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Laila Ali thinks it's GREAT Colin Kaepernick received the special award named after her father -- but she ain't exactly ready to call him the modern day Muhammad Ali

FYI, the winner of the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award is selected by representatives of Sports Illustrated and the Ali family to "honor a figure who embodies the ideals of sportsmanship, leadership and philanthropy and has used sports as a platform for changing the world."

"Isn't that wonderful?" Laila told TMZ Sports when asked about Colin ... "He has my 100% stamp of approval."

We then said, "People are calling him the modern day Muhammad Ali. Do you agree?"

She kinda gave us a look ... and said, "I think it's good he got the award though."

Some props better than no props -- right? 

Beyonce Holiday Shopping's On Target!!!

12/7/2017 3:24 PM PST

Beyonce let her hair down and threw on some shades, but it wasn't enough to disguise her during a Target shopping spree.

Tar-jay customers and Lady Bey had a close encounter Thursday in San Clemente, CA. Looks like she was cruising the toy aisles with her mom, Tina. Shhh!!! Don't tell Blue Ivy ... or Sir or Rumi.

We see a kiddo in one of the pics but it's hard to tell who it is. In any event, score one for Bey's pockets, and for Target shoppers.

Your move, Kmart and Walmart.

Cynthia Bailey on L.A. Fires Hope You're Safe, Chrissy Here's What I'd Grab If I Were You

12/7/2017 8:32 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cynthia Bailey and Chrissy Teigen are alike in a lot of ways -- 'cause they'd both be super moms in an emergency fire situation.

We got the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star at LAX and briefed her on the latest news about the L.A. fires and people evacuating -- like Chrissy, for example.

We asked Cynthia what she would take in a hot second, were she in that same crisis. Turns out her priorities line up pretty closely with her pal Chrissy -- with a few exceptions.

Cynthia has 2 items on her list Chrissy left behind. Not that there's anything wrong with Oreos. 

Post Malone Sorry Mom, But I Love My Tattoo!!!

12/7/2017 7:14 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Post Malone better start warming up his chops to spit Eminem's line, "I'm sorry Momma! I never meant to hurt you!" ... cause she's PISSED.

We got Malone outside The Moxy Hotel in NYC Wednesday and asked him about his new face tattoo that reads, "Stay Away." It's probably what Mom's saying right now cause Post tells us Mom is NOT a fan.

Check it out ... it's in the same location where his friend and the late rapper Lil Peep had his "Crybaby" tat, and it seems like another homage. But to that, he pleads ignorance.

No word on Mom's feelings about Malone's other Peep ink.

Kobe Bryant Disneyland B-Day for Baby Mamba ... Kobe-est Place on Earth!!

12/6/2017 10:55 AM PST

Kobe Bryant's youngest daughter, Bianka, just turned 1 -- so naturally, he took the whole fam out to his absolute favorite place to celebrate.

Nope, not the basketball court ... the Magic Kingdom -- so Baby Mamba could get the full Disneyland experience on her big day. (Props to Mrs. Bryant for going all-in with the Minnie Mouse ears).

Kobe was on daddy duty ... but #MambaMentality also locked onto the concessions so he could cop a Shaq-sized Churro.

If this feels familiar ... it's probably 'cause Bryant has hit up Mickey and pals a TON throughout the years -- including a trip in the spring where he turned up with Bianka.

O.J. Simpson I Still Got My Heisman Vote ... Hell Yeah I Used It!!!

12/5/2017 10:33 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Fun fact for you ... O.J. Simpson will have a say in this year's Heisman race, because he's still allowed to vote and, according to the Juice, he exercised that right.

Simpson was out in Las Vegas Monday night celebrating his daughter Arnelle's birthday when he broke down the race for the Trophy, which will be handed out Saturday night.

He seems to be up on all the leading candidates -- which is a little surprising, considering he's had a lot on his plate this fall. Y'know, getting out of prison and all.

O.J. was never forced to forfeit his Heisman winning status a la Reggie Bush. So, even though his '68 trophy was sold at auction to pay the Goldman family -- Simpson still gets a vote, by virtue of being a former winner.
