EXCLUSIVE

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.

The Game Father Dies at 65

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.

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

1/17/2018 7:21 AM PST

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!

Glenn Frey Widow Sues Hospital You Killed My Husband

1/16/2018 2:35 PM PST

Glenn Frey was left sick and suffering during his dying days because of the poor treatment at a hospital ... according to a new suit filed by his widow.

Cindy Frey alleges the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and Steven Itzkowitz failed to properly render medical care to her husband -- the co-founder and guitarist for the Eagles -- the last couple months of his life ... until he died in January 2016.

Cindy claims the medical workers were negligent in treating Frey's ulcerative colitis, failed to properly assess respiratory issues, failed to treat infection, failed to consider side effects of medications and didn't properly advise him of the risks to his health and life.

According to the docs, first reported by the NY Post ... Frey was "rendered sick, sore, lame and disabled, suffered injuries, pain, mental anguish ... and was permanently injured and disabled until the time of his death."

Cindy's asking for damages for wrongful death.

Kim Kardashian Front and Center in Delivery Room For Birth of Daughter

1/16/2018 10:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian was in the hospital delivery room when her surrogate gave birth ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the birth tell us, Kim was at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. when the surrogate was in labor and, when the baby was born, she was the first person to have skin-to-skin contact with the baby. We're told it was the family's trusted Dr. Paul Crane, who delivered the baby.

We're told Kanye was in the delivery room, but behind a curtain. He came out after the baby was born and held his daughter for the first time.

Kris Jenner and Kim's sisters were also at the hospital, but they were not in the delivery room.

We're told the surrogate was able to have some contact with the baby after the delivery, but was almost immediately under the care of Kim and Kanye.

The baby was born without complications. She weighed in at 7 lbs 6 oz. Still no word on the baby's name.

TMZ was first to post the story after Kim announced on her app that the surrogate gave birth at 12:47 AM Monday.

Enrique & Anna Meet Our Twins!!! Answer Key Not Included

1/16/2018 10:07 AM PST

Enrique Iglesias is giving the world a first glance at one of the twins he and Anna Kournikova kept totally undercover during her pregnancy.

There's still some secrecy -- Enrique captioned the pic, "My Sunshine" ... so, it's unclear if the kid in the pic is Nicholas or Lucy. TMZ broke the story ... Anna and Enrique became first-time parents when she gave birth back in December. 

Judging by the baby's clothing ... we're gonna guess this is Nicholas. Hell, we've got a 50-50 shot!

10:55 AM PT -- Ok, now we're more confused. Anna just posted her own shot with one of the twins, and also captioned it, "My Sunshine."

Now, we're guessing Anna's holding the boy, Nicholas -- while Enrique's got the girl, Lucy. We're sure of it! Or, at least 50-50. 

President Donald Trump Chivalry is Dead as a Doornail

1/16/2018 7:11 AM PST

President Trump's apparently more worried about his hair than his image ... fully covering his noggin with an umbrella while his fam braves the elements.

45 boarded Air Force One Monday in West Palm Beach, Florida ... and trailing behind in the rain and heavy wind was 11-year-old son Barron, and First Lady Melania Trump. The Prez spent the weekend at Mar-a-Lago ... probably not taking etiquette lessons.

Awful but also not surprising ... considering Trump's notorious for doing this under the biggest spotlight. Remember when Trump left Melania for their meeting with 44 and Michelle?

Bad look, hombre.
