Charlottesville Victim's Mom Speaks At Memorial ... Neo-Nazis Won't Shut Her Up

8/16/2017 10:20 AM PDT
Breaking News

Heather Heyer's mother says the white supremacists and hate groups responsible for her daughter's death didn't shut her up ... they made her message that much louder. 

Susan Bro gave a powerful speech Wednesday at her daughter's memorial service in Charlottesville's Paramount Theater, and served up a rallying cry for what her daughter died for ... standing up against hate.

Susan told a packed room ... "They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well guess what? You just magnified her." She added ... if people continue Heather's legacy of fighting racism and hate, it'd make her daughter's death worthwhile. 

Susan ended with a powerful message ... "I'd rather have my child. But, by golly, if I gotta give her up, we're gonna make it count." 

20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr. -- an alleged neo-Nazi sympathizer -- has been charged with murder in connection to the crime.

Susan did not address Donald Trump's controversial remarks regarding blame in Charlottesville on "both sides" ... but the Prez did mention Heather today. 

Britney Spears I Need a New Will To Protect My Kids

8/16/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Britney Spears is going back to the drawing board and redrafting her will ... all for the benefit of her 2 boys.

Britney's longtime conservators have filed legal docs asking for permission to change her will, which was drafted before she gave birth to Sean, now 11, and Jayden, now 10.

We've learned the current will simply provides ... when Britney dies her kids inherit her entire estate. Problem is ... they would get her entire fortune -- estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars -- when they turn 18. It's not wise to open the vault all at once to 18-year-olds.

Our sources say the new estate plan creates a trust for the kids, who will inherit her entire estate. But they will not have access to the entire fortune until they turn 35. The trust gives them limited access at 18, more access to the money at 25, but they won't get it all until they're eligible to run for President.

The trust also slashes the amount of inheritance tax the estate will have to pay.

The judge has to approve the change, but there shouldn't be any problem.

Pharrell Williams My Disneyland Mask is Goofy

8/16/2017 7:00 AM PDT

Even with a mask ... Pharrell Williams ain't hard to pick out of a crowd at Disneyland. 

Pharrell tried going incognito Monday by pulling a Michael Jackson at the theme park. If you recall, the King of Pop always wore one in public with limited success.

P's is definitely fashion forward if not useful. His cover was compromised by the security guards who flanked him as he strolled the park.

The 'Voice' coach hit up the rides with his wife, Helen Lasichanh, their kid, Rocket, and some friends. He removed the mask on the Radiator Springs Racers ride at Disney California Adventure.

They don't call it the Happiest Place on Earth for nothin'.

'Bachelor' Winner Vienna Girardi Miscarried Twins

8/13/2017 4:52 PM PDT

"Bachelor" winner Vienna Girardi announced tragic news this weekend about the miscarriage of her twin daughters.

Vienna -- who won Jake Pavelka's season of "The Bachelor" in 2010 -- took to Facebook Sunday to reveal she suffered a miscarriage earlier this month while pregnant with her twins, who were only 18 weeks along in her pregnancy.

In the post, Vienna details what happened by saying one of her twins showed signs for Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome -- when one twin takes more nutrients than the other while developing.

She went on to say ... "They said that it did look like it had improved over the last week though. Unfortunately, that was not the case and that evening my water broke due to the amniotic sacs rupturing. I spent the next 2 days in the hospital trying everything to save them." 

She lost her twins on August 5, and had to have emergency surgery herself ... leaving her in the ICU for 4 days. She said if she hadn't gone into labor early, she'd be risking her own life due to possible infection in her uterus. 

RIP

Aaron Carter Bro's Not Reached Out ... Since I Came Out

8/12/2017 1:43 PM PDT

Aaron Carter says he's received amazing support since coming out as bisexual ... but apparently not yet from his brother.

The singer clammed up at the D.C. airport Saturday morning when he got asked if his bro, Nick Carter, had contacted him since his announcement ... and seemed to get emotional for a second before saying he and Nick are "wonderful."

It was more lighthearted after that, as Aaron considered some hot male celebs he'd like to date ... and picked a fellow singer he says he's been a huge fan of for a long time.

Chris Massey Makes Peace with Shar Jackson Drops Restraining Order

8/12/2017 12:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Shar Jackson is no longer blocked from her granddaughter -- Chris Massey just dropped his restraining order.

Chris tells us ... he decided to dismiss the case because he understands the importance of family and grandparents. For her part Shar's happy, of course, especially because she feels he was dragging her good name through the mud.  

We broke the story ... the "Zoey 101" star accused Shar -- his baby mama's mama -- of hitting his 2-year-old daughter, Mariah, and leaving her with a 4-inch "razor cut" on her forehead.  A judge ordered her to stay 50 yards away from the child temporarily, but that's no more. According to the court clerk ... a judge granted Chris' request for dismissal.

What's unclear ... if Massey really believed Shar was abusive to his kid -- something she adamantly denies -- why'd he drop it?.

8/10/2017 6:47 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner's smokin' hot body is now 20 years in the making -- and she decided to show off the goods a day before the big 2-0 ... to all of our delight.

Kylie posted these shots of herself Wednesday -- the day before her 20th birthday -- proving she's all woman as she exits her teens. With curves like these ... her 20s are looking good.

Later in the day she celebrated her bday with her mom, most of her sisters (sans Kourtney), her friends and, of course, her man, Travis Scott.

They held a private shindig at the Hills Penthouse in West Hollywood ... where there was a chocolate fountain, a curvy ice sculpture (in honor of Kylie, obviously) and a cake with her face on it.

Kylie had every reason to celebrate and then some. As we reported, her mom says her lip line, Kylie Cosmetics, is now a $400 million company ... and on track to be a billion dollar company by 2022.

Congrats, kid! Ahem, we mean lady ... woman ... your grace.

Shar Jackson to Chris Massey 'Furious & Disgusted' Over Child Abuse Claims

8/9/2017 2:25 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

3:47 PM PT -- A rep for Chris tells TMZ ... Shar has every right to respond however she'd like, but Chris and his family are choosing to settle this in court and not in the media or on TV. Shar Jackson is apoplectic that Chris Massey accused her of abusing his 2-year-old daughter (Shar's granddaughter) ... saying her very public history as a parent is more than proof she'd never hurt a child.

Shar bristled at Chris' claims she hit his daughter, Mariah, last month and left a razor blade cut on her forehead. Shar -- who also had 2 kids by Kevin Federline -- says the claims are boldfaced lies and she's now got her own plan of attack ... against Chris.

As for the alleged razor blade injury to Mariah, Shar says the girl accidentally cut herself during a Facetime between her mom (Shar's daughter) and Chris back in May. Shar says she wasn't even there.

We've reached out to Chris  ... so far, no word back.

Carrie Fisher's Daughter Billie Lourd Will Inherit Nearly $7 Mil

8/9/2017 11:43 AM PDT
Breaking News

Carrie Fisher -- who starred in the globally iconic 'Star Wars' franchise as Princess Leia -- left an estate worth nearly $7 million to her daughter, Billie Lourd.

In new docs filed by the executor of Carrie's estate, Billie stands to inherit $6.8 million in personal property left by Carrie. TMZ broke the story, Carrie died after suffering a massive heart attack aboard a flight from London to LAX.

It's interesting ... although $6.8 million is nothing to sneeze at, considering the most recent 'Star Wars' installment featuring Carrie grossed more than $2 BILLION, you'd think her estate might be more flush with cash.

It's possible there could be additional money in trusts not reflected in this probate case ... which Billie could also collect.

Amber Rose Lawyering Up for Restraining Order Against Wiz Khalifa's Mom

8/9/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Amber Rose wants Wiz Khalifa's mom to back the hell off ... so she's lawyering up to get a restraining order against her ex-mother-in-law.

Sources close to Amber tell TMZ ... Amber's furious that Katie Wimbush-Polk's hatred for her has spilled into the courtroom. Katie has sued Amber for defamation, claiming Amber's allegation Katie's an unfit grandmother is a big fat lie.

We're told Amber believes it's just a revenge lawsuit because Katie can't let go of the fact Amber left her son 3 years ago, and Katie has tried to make Amber's life a living hell ever since the split.

Katie's also taken shots at Amber on social media, ripping her to shreds every chance she gets ... like in 2015 when Katie jumped into the Kardashian-Amber beef and defended the Klan.

Amber wants a restraining order to keep her and Wiz's 4-year-old son, Sebastian, far away from Katie ... fearing that exposing Sebastian to Katie's hatred for Amber will hurt the kid.

We've reached out to Katie, so far no word back.

R. Kelly Joycelyn's Family Pleads ... Let Her Come Home for Meeting

8/8/2017 12:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4:00 PM PT -- Joycelyn's attorney says Tuesday's news conference is part of the Savages' "continued extreme, unnecessary actions, which constitute harassment and are defamatory.

He adds the family's allegations are not based in fact and are simply an attempt to capitalize on their daughter for personal gain.

R. Kelly's been no help putting one of the young women living with him in contact with her parents, so now they want an in-person meeting to make sure she's okay.

Joycelyn Savage's parents held a press conference Tuesday morning near Atlanta with their lawyers to announce a plan to get in touch with their daughter. The Savages are requesting R. Kelly allow Joycelyn to come home to speak to them face-to-face on August 25 ... when he's in town for a concert.

As we reported ... the Savage family's hired a legal team to "seek the safe return" of Joycelyn because they're concerned for her health and safety. Joycelyn, however, has asked her parents to leave her alone and claims her dad knows where she's at.

The Savage family says her video's not enough to assure them she's fine, though, and because efforts to communicate with R. Kelly's team have been fruitless so far ... they're taking the next step.

Amber Rose Sued for Defamation by Wiz Khalifa's Mom

8/8/2017 11:49 AM PDT

Amber Rose launched into a profanity-laced phone call accusing Wiz Khalifa's mother of being an unfit grandmother ... so says Wiz's mom in a lawsuit.

Katie Wimbush-Polk is reportedly suing Amber for defamation because she says Wiz's ex said she was responsible for her child's death. Khalifa's sibling, Dorien "Lala", died in February of complications from lymphoma.

In the suit -- as reported by the Washington Observer-Reporter -- Amber made the phone call to Katie after Katie allegedly reported Amber to California Child Welfare Services. Katie denies making the call, and nothing came of it when child services visited Amber on June 19.

Wiz's mom is suing for damages. We've reached out to Amber, so far no word back.

Chris Pratt, Anna Faris Split Triggered by Family, More Kids and Hollywood

8/8/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are going their separate ways not because of some third party in their marriage, not because one of them did something unforgivable ... they split because they each have very different views of what a family should be.

Our sources say Anna wants a family that is pretty much together most of the time. She wants a base ... which for her has been Los Angeles. We're told she wants more kids. The upshot ... Anna wants a traditional family.

Chris, on the other hand, has had some life-changing experiences that has required him to adjust the balance between family and career. When he married Anna back in 2009, she was much bigger than him. He's now at the top of the Hollywood food chain, and with that comes opportunities that take him all over the world, shooting movies that take him away from home for months at a time.

Our sources say he doesn't want more kids ... at least not in the foreseeable future, because he can't juggle a growing family with his career. And he can't be corralled in one place -- even L.A. -- because that's not the way the movie industry works.

That said, we're told they have an unbreakable bond in son Jack. They are devoted parents, both separately and together and they are determined to keep it that way.

Our sources say there are other personal reasons for the split, but the way they see family in the long-term was a big factor in their decision.

Finally, our sources say both Chris and Anna are incredibly sad over the end of their relationship. Although she says they've separated, we're told they have already set the wheels in motion for divorce, which we're told will be as amicable as it gets.
