4/24/2018 7:00 AM PDT

Gigi Hadid was the clear standout for her 23rd birthday party this week -- but her sis and smoking hot model friends came in at a very close 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th ... you get it.

Gigi led the charge Monday night heading into an undisclosed venue in Brooklyn, where she was accompanied by her younger sister, Bella, followed by a LONG line of beauties ... including the likes of Olivia Culpo, Cara Delevingne, Amber Heard, Hailey Baldwin, Lily Aldridge, Joan Smalls, Martha Hunt and Nicola Peltz. Her parents tagged along, too.

The elder Hadid sister is coming off a fresh breakup with on-again-off-again boyfriend Zayn Malik. Nothing heals a broken heart like getting together with your girls for a golden b-day throwdown, where you turn 23 on the 23rd ... we feel better already!

Gina Rodriguez Dog Mom Of 2, Again ... Drops $2.5k On Pooch

4/24/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gina Rodriguez just added another pooch to her dog family ... an adorable 9-week-old Havanese that cost $2.5k.

The "Jane the Virgin" actress pulled the trigger Sunday at Citipups Chelsea in New York City. We're told she came in several times last week to spend time with the dog, and then finally brought her other pooch, Casper, in over the weekend to make sure the two got along, which was a success.

Gina had another dog, Ted, that passed away about 2 years ago, so looks like she's trying to get Casper another pal while she pulls long hours on the "Jane the Virgin" set. 

The Havanese pup was neutered Monday, so Gina will be able to take him home this week once the pupper has recovered.

Prince Family Sues Hospital That Treated First Opioid Overdose

4/23/2018 5:03 PM PDT

Prince's family is taking action after it was announced no one would be criminally charged in the singer's death by suing the hospital that treated his overdose a week before he died.

Prince's family -- repped in the lawsuit by trustee Michael A. Zimmer -- just filed to sue Trinity Medical Center out of Illinois for allegedly failing to properly diagnose and treat Prince's opioid addiction before he suffered another, and ultimately fatal, overdose a week later.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, the family claims that Trinity's action -- or lack thereof -- was a direct and proximate cause of Prince's death. They're also suing one of Trinity's doctors, Dr. Nicole Mancha, as well as an unidentified pharmacist and Walgreens employee whom they claim were involved in providing care to him in his final days. They're suing Walgreens, too, btw.

We broke the story ... Prince made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois, where emergency responders gave him 2 shots of Narcan to save his life. He was taken to a nearby hospital at the time, which apparently turned out to be Trinity.

In regards to Walgreens, Prince's family claims the drug store chain was dispensing narcotic prescription medications to Prince for an invalid medical purpose and failed to make sure he was using the drug properly. 

Not named in the lawsuit ... Dr. Michael Schulenberg, who investigators say prescribed Prince Percocet through his bodyguard, Kirk Johnson, serving as a proxy. Schulenberg settled with the feds over that violation for a $30,000 fine. Video of Prince at Dr. Schulenberg's office was released last week, as was an entire trove of evidence acquired in his death investigation.

R. Kelly's Daughter I Feel Terrible About Sex Scandals But, He's Dad & We're Family

4/23/2018 11:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly's daughter is reluctantly sticking by her old man amid mounting sex abuse allegations that are reaching a breaking point ... 'cause she says that's what family does.

We got Joann Kelly -- who goes by her artist name, Buku -- in Atlanta Monday, where we asked about the ever-growing scandal surrounding her father, who's been accused of grooming young women to be "sex pets" while allegedly holding them against their will.

Joann tells us she doesn't want to speak too much on the matter, but you can tell the issue hits close to home. She does admit, though, to feeling "terrible" about the whole thing.

Seeing how Kelly's inner circle is reportedly falling apart -- his publicist, lawyer and assistant all quit last week, according to the BBC -- we ask if Joann's still close with her pops. Check out her response ... it's definitely not a ringing endorsement for Dad of the Year.

Kate Middleton & Prince William It's a BOY!!! Makes First Public Appearance

4/23/2018 5:17 AM PDT
Breaking News

9:57 AM PT -- Kate and the new bouncing royal have made their first public appearance together!

Will was also there by her side for the big reveal on the steps of the hospital. Both mom and baby have been reported to be in perfect health.

Kate Middleton has just given birth to her third child ... and it's a BOY!!!

The Duchess of Cambridge popped Monday at St. Mary's Hospital in London. The new royal was announced to weigh in at 8 lbs. 7 oz. by Kensington Palace. Prince William was at Kate's side for the birth.

As is tradition, the Town Crier announced the birth from the steps of the Lindo Wing of the hospital. The customary announcement -- complete with bell ringing and feathered cap -- was also made for Kate's other two births.

Kate and Prince William announced last September baby No. 3 was on the way but the announcement came only after the cat had been outta the bag. The royal family was seemingly forced to announce she was pregnant after canceling a public appearance due to extreme morning sickness.

She also suffered from morning sickness before giving birth to Prince George in 2013 and Princess Charlotte in 2015. Btw ... baby No. 3 will be fifth in line to the throne -- after Prince Charles, Prince William and his 2 siblings.

Congrats!!

Kate Middleton & Prince William Bets Are On Arthur For Royal Baby Name

4/23/2018 8:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kate Middleton and Prince William haven't announced the name for their newborn son yet, but there's already a bunch of people betting it'll be Arthur.

We reached out to Ladbrokes, a major UK betting company, who's been taking bets on the new royal baby name and Arthur is the clear frontrunner.

If you're wondering why Arthur ... royals are traditionally named after relatives and Arthur is commonly used in the royal family. Both Prince Charles and Prince William have Arthur as a middle name, but it hasn't been used as a first name in a while.

Check out the top contenders:

-- Arthur 6/4
-- James 5/1
-- Albert 6/1
-- Philip 6/1
-- Thomas 10/1
-- Alexander 12/1
-- Henry 12/1

Funnily enough, it’s not looking good for daddy’s namesake. William bottoms the list at 25/1.

There are some familiar names on the potential godparent list as well ... the top contender is Tiggy Legge-Bourke, Prince William's old nanny ... and Prince Harry comes in at 10/1 -- tied with Pippa Middleton, Kate’s sister. Meghan Markle is further down at 14/1. Some celebs with not such good odds? Elton John at 50/1, David Beckham at 100/1 and Donald Trump at 1000/1.

Kate and Prince William's son was born Monday morning at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. It's their third kid, second son and fifth in line to the throne.

Traci Braxton Toni is in My Rearview ... Surprise, I'm Going Solo!!!

4/23/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Traci Braxton is taking a career setback and turning it into a comeback -- after getting thrown off her sister Toni's upcoming tour ... she's opting to hit the road on her own.

Traci says she's getting a second chance thanks to a TV network that's offered to back her tour in June. She was supposed to open for Toni and Tamar on a few dates this summer, but got 86'ed due to the family drama surrounding Tamar's divorce. Tamar also got the boot eventually.

Traci says her tour's not just a surprise for her fans ... she didn't tell her sisters! Until now.

Despite all the family drama, almost all of the sisters sang on Traci's new single, "Broken Things." Tamar was the sole holdout, but Traci insists there's no hard feelings, and they're actually talking about doing a duet soon.

Sisters. Can't live with 'em, can't tour with 'em ... but it's all good.

Avicii Brother in Oman As Family Seeks Answers

4/21/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

11:25 AM PT -- Oman police say Avicii's body will be flown home to Sweden this week. Still no word on the cause of his death.

One of Avicii's family members is on the ground in Oman leading the charge to find out what killed the world famous DJ ... TMZ has learned.

Sources in Oman tell us Avicii's older brother, David Bergling, checked into an upscale hotel in the capital city of Muscat on Friday evening ... hours after Avicii was found dead. We're told the hotel where he's staying is about 15 minutes away from Muscat Hills -- the resort where Avicii had been vacationing.

As we showed you, the EDM superstar posed for several photos with fans at the resort, and witnesses say he appeared to be in good spirits during his time there.

According to reports in Avicii's native Sweden, he had checked out of Muscat Hills sometime last week. One of the things David is likely looking into is exactly where his brother and a small group of friends went in the days leading up to his death. 

Avicii comes from a very famous family in Sweden. His mother, Anki Liden, and another brother are both actors. David is a hotelier in Sweden.

Mel B Daughter's Therapy Was My Idea!! Belafonte's Full of Crap

4/20/2018 3:39 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B says Stephen Belafonte is trying to pull a fast one by making it look like he decided to get their daughter into therapy, and she adds his brainwashing allegations are desperate.

According to new legal docs ... Mel B says she reached out to Stephen in late 2017 to get counseling for their 6-year-old daughter, Madison. Instead of agreeing and helping out, Mel claims Stephen waited a few months to file docs in which he accuses her of brainwashing Madison.

In her docs, Mel says therapy for their daughter was her idea all along -- so, she's not opposed to it. In fact, she even has suggestions for possible doctors for Madison to see.

As for Belafonte's brainwashing allegations -- Mel B says they're all nonsense ... and he has absolutely no evidence to support his claims Madison is acting differently toward him. 

Mel adds, they already have a custody plan in place and they should stick to it, because she's done nothing to alienate their daughter from him.

True Thompson Birth Certificate Confirms No Middle Name

4/19/2018 1:13 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's baby girl is officially registered in the system in Ohio ... and she's without a middle name.

The birth certificate -- obtained by TMZ -- mostly confirms what we already knew thanks to Khloe ... True weighed in at 6 lbs 13 oz and was 21 inches long. It also confirms True was born without a middle name, much like her cousins North, Saint, Stormi and Chicago.

We broke the story ... Tristan was there for True's birth despite the tumultuous time for the couple, and Kourtney, Kim, Kris and Khloe's BFF Malika were also by her side. This is Khloe and the Cavs star's first child together.

As we reported ... True is a family name -- it was the name of Kris' grandfather -- but it's interesting Khloe chose to use Thompson as the baby's last name in wake of his cheating scandal when she didn't have to ... and their relationship is in ruins.

Regardless ... welcome to the world, True!

James Harrison Brady Retiring Wouldn't Shock Me ... BTW, Here Are My Plans!

4/19/2018 12:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

James Harrison just hung it up, but could Tom Brady be next??

With rumors swirling on Brady potentially not playing this season, we asked Deebo himself -- Tom's teammate last year -- and he told us it would NOT surprise him ... given the sacrifices TB, Gisele and the kids make so he can play ball.

“That’s up to Tom and what decisions he and his family make as far as what he wants to do, and if he does want to continue to play, what he’s willing to sacrifice and the family is willing to sacrifice,” Harrison told TMZ Sports.

James would know -- telling us that's why he decided to retire earlier this week.

Specifically, the Pro Bowl LB says he's interested in introducing his 2 sons to tackle football -- and possibly even coaching them! 

Deebo says it's a tough decision for any parent to make given everything that's out on CTE -- but explained why he wants his sons exposed to it before they hit their teens. 

"Everything in life has dangers ... I'm not gonna live in fear of things that could possibly happen."
