Beyonce, JAY-Z Still Dealing with Twins' Premature Birth

6/26/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce gave birth 2 weeks ago Monday, but she and Jay-Z are still dealing with premature birth issues ... sources connected to the family tell TMZ.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, as of 4 days ago the infants were still in the hospital. As we reported, they are "under the lights" ... which typically means they have jaundice, the result of elevated bilirubin issues. The lights lower bilirubin in the blood to eliminate the jaundice.

We're told none of the medical problems should pose serious long-term issues ... nonetheless, we're told doctors did not want the babies released until they were stabilized.

As we reported ... Beyonce had a boy and a girl.

The release date is unclear.

Barack Obama Rough Waters Ahead

6/26/2017 6:37 AM PDT

President Obama was NOT the captain of this ship ... and he's totally cool with it.

The former Prez and Michelle took Malia and Sasha along for their latest vacation in Bali ... where they did some white water rafting. Based on Sasha's smile we're guessing these were class II rapids at best.

The Obamas also toured a rice terrace as they kicked off a 10-day trip that will end in Jakarta. Barack is making a speech there to the Indonesian Congress. Barack spent part of his childhood living in the country, so it's a bit of a homecoming.

He's going back in style -- reportedly staying at the Four Seasons in Bali where rooms can run several thousand per night.

Their $60 mil book advances should cover it.

LaVar Ball's Dad LaVar Woulda Destroyed Jordan ... I'm 100% Sure

6/26/2017 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LaVar Ball isn't the only one in the world who thinks he could've beaten Michael Jordan 1-on-1 ... his father agrees ... telling TMZ Sports he's CERTAIN his Big Baller son would've dominated His Airness.

Of course, LaVar's the guy who started this fire (and many others) claiming in his athletic heyday, he'd have beaten Jordan, a statement that sent the sports world into an "Is he crazy?" frenzy.

We ran into one guy who DOESN'T think he's crazy at LAX -- LaVar's dad -- who only had one answer when we asked and he told us he agreed with his son's big brag.

"Yes. When he was younger and he was 6'6'', 270, I would've put him against anybody."

Turns out, the trash talking apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Grandpa Ball LaVar Learned Everything From Me!

6/23/2017 1:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here he is ... the man who REALLY created the Big Baller empire -- Grandpa Ball -- and he's spilling some family secrets to TMZ Sports

LaVar's dad was at LAX after returning from the NBA Draft -- and says LaVar treated the entire Ball family to one of the best meals of their lives after Lonzo Ball got picked #2 by the Lakers. 

"I had the best of everything!" 

Grandpa says he couldn't be more proud of his son and grandson -- but revealed some interesting differences about his parenting style. 

He also revealed his nickname for his son -- and why he doesn't call him "LaVar" like everyone else. 

It's great video ... and he even dishes out some words of wisdom for Lonzo when it comes to money. 

Lonzo Ball Goes Full Kardashian ... After NBA Draft

EXCLUSIVE

Look out, Kim and Kris ... Lonzo and LaVar Ball have officially begun their march on Hollywood. 

Moments after Lonzo got drafted by the Lakers, the cameras were rolling on the Big Baller Brand family -- who were flanked by cops, security and a swagged-out BBB entourage as they got the VIP treatment on the way out of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

A professional camera crew was recording the whole thing -- unclear if it was ESPN or a BBB documentary/reality show ... which we already confirmed was in the works.

One thing's for sure ... LaVar was LOVING the attention Thursday night and it's not going away anytime soon.

Steph Curry I'm the Champ of Beach Brews ... Who Needs a Fresh One?

6/22/2017 1:13 PM PDT

Steph Curry's dishing beers and stogies in the off-season, the same way he dished the rock in the NBA Finals ... but now it's his family scoring instead of Kevin Durant.

The Curry fam -- Steph, Ayesha, their kids, his parents and more -- are all celebrating his 2nd NBA title over in Hawaii with what looks like the most awesome beach picnic.

The Golden State Warriors superstar's drinking beers, smoking cigars and showing off his ripped bod.

Steph parties responsibly though -- plenty of SPF for everyone!

Drew Barrymore My Fam's Down with the Zombie Life

6/22/2017 10:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drew Barrymore looked very much the opposite of undead in L.A. with her estranged hubby, Will Kopelman, and one of their daughters -- but they'd still have her back if she opted for the zombie lifestyle.

Drew's got a new show on Netflix called "Santa Clarita Diet" about a mother who turns into a zombie and is forced to eat people. We're guessing Will digs the show based on his response to our zombie hypothetical.

The bigger point here ... this looks like another case of Hollywood exes getting along. Nice trend.

Drew also talked to us about her perfect cameo in the SZA video for the song, "Drew Barrymore." Great casting on someone's part.

Philando Castile Fiancee's Daughter in Tears Don't Get Shooted, Mom!

6/21/2017 9:08 AM PDT

Moments after Philando Castile was shot dead by Officer Jeronimo Yanez ... his fiancee and her daughter were in the back of a police car, and the just-released video of them is absolutely heartbreaking.

You'll recall, Diamond Reynolds broadcast the aftermath of the July 2016 police shooting on Facebook Live. Her then 4-year-old daughter was sitting in the back seat of the car during the shooting, and afterward police put them both in custody.

In this video authorities just released ... Reynolds is still screaming in anger in the back of the police cruiser -- and the little girl cries, "Mom, please don't scream 'cause I don't want you to get shooted!"

She sobbed and continued begging her mother to calm down.

The video was just released because Yanez's trial ended last week. He was found not guilty of manslaughter.

Kim and Kanye Hire Surrogate for 3rd Kid

6/21/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have made a deal with a surrogate to have another child ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported, Kim has a condition -- placenta accreta -- which makes another pregnancy life-threatening. So Kim and Kanye have found a surrogate through an agency and agreed to pay the following:

-- $45,000 in 10, $4,500 monthly installments

-- If there are multiples, the surrogate gets $5k for each additional kid

-- If the surrogate loses reproductive organs, she gets $4,000

Kim and Kanye are also required to deposit $68,850 with the agency.

The surrogate is required to refrain from smoking, drinking and drugs during the pregnancy. She also agrees to restrict sexual activities in the weeks leading up to the pregnancy, including foregoing sexual intercourse for 3 weeks following embryo implantation.

The surrogate cannot go in hot tubs or saunas, cannot handle or change cat litter, apply hair dye, drink more than one caffeinated beverage per day or eat raw fish.

The agreement provides that Kim and Kanye "assume the legal and parental responsibilities for any child ... that may possess any congenital or other abnormalities or defects."

Blac Chyna & Rob K. Back with a Bang

6/20/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are back on again ... or at the very least getting it on again.

Rob showed up at Chyna's doorstep last week and hasn't left.  

We showed you how they spent Father's Day ... at Disneyland with 7-month-old Dream. As we said, it didn't make a whole lot of sense for them to take an infant to a theme park she can't appreciate, so it seems liked it was more for them than the kid.

Now we've found out Rob's been there every day and every night ... going on a week. They've been socializing with friends and family with BBQ's and a pool party, and they've taken hikes together.

Chyna dropped a ton of cash on gifts for Father's Day, including a Louis Vuitton bag, a customized Dodgers hat, sneakers and white and blue roses emblazoned with an "R."

We're told this has nothing to do with a TV show or business ... they're back into each other, at least for now.

One last thing ... we're told Jacob's father was not home at the time of the shooting, and was stopped less than a mile from the home on his way back from work when cops broke the news.
