Lionel Richie Sofia Dating Scott is 'Just a Phase' ... Right???

2/17/2018 6:28 PM PST

Lionel Richie doesn't sound like a dad who's ready to spring for a wedding for his daughter just yet ... at least not with her current BF

The legendary singer opened up about his 19-year-old daughter Sofia's relationship with 34-year-old Scott Disick, telling The Daily Telegraph she's at an age where she thinks she knows everything ... but he's not so sure.

Lionel says of the couple, "Is it going to be for life? I don’t know. But for right now it’s just a phase and I’m going to stand real still in the corner, get me a good drink and not make too much noise.”

Richie likens the situation to when he was Sofia's age, rocking an Afro and telling his father he was in love. He says his dad ignored it and let him figure it out, and adds ... "My daughter is getting me back for my Afro days!"

When we last checked in on Sofia and Scott, she was dancing for him in a skimpy Santa suit ... to Lionel's music.

So we can understand Dad's wishful thinking.

Blac Chyna Pimpin' Baby Strollers!!!

2/17/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna's now wheeling and dealing in the baby stroller biz ... because this MILF sees green, baby!

Sources connected to the new project tell TMZ ... BC just signed up to pimp the new baby stroller brand Momiie ... set to launch in the U.S. in April. We're told she'll be brand ambassador and her bottom line will be determined by how hard she sells. She has 14 million followers, so you can see how Momiie's intrigued.

Here's the deal -- Momiie gave BC a social media posting plan by which she must abide. She'll get paid a slice of the profits. In case you're wondering ... Momiie paid her zero up front, so she's gotta hustle.

If all goes well, Momiie will help BC launch her own stroller line with their brand sometime late this summer. We're told Chyna will be hands-on with the designs. Good luck!!

LaVar Ball LeBron Will Sign w/ Lakers Lonzo Will Make Him Better!

2/17/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The house-cleaning in Cleveland was all for nothing -- because LeBron James is leaving the Cavs to sign with the Lakers in the off-season ... at least, that's what LaVar Ball believes. 

The Big Baller was at his pop-up shop in L.A. when we asked about the possibility of Bron coming out West to play with Lonzo when he becomes a free agent at the end of the season. 

LaVar is not only convinced it's going to happen -- he tells TMZ Sports, "Lonzo is gonna make HIM a better player!" 

He also loves the idea of having "two stars" on the same team -- and already has a nickname for the duo. 

The Lakers will reportedly take a run at LeBron in the off-season -- they have the money to sign two max-contract players -- and with LeBron having homes and businesses in L.A., there's definitely a chance it could happen. 

Jaden Smith I Go Shirtless for Nature, Man!!!

2/16/2018 3:14 PM PST

Jaden Smith doesn't just give back to his community -- he goes topless to give back, and makes it look good ... as his pops once put it.

We're guessing Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are pretty proud of Jaden and his sister, Willow, after they put time and labor into planting trees at Laurel Canyon Park in L.A. Friday afternoon. The famous sibs were with a group of friends helping to spruce up the 'hood.

Of course, Jaden appeared to be the only one doing it shirtless. It was also apparent that no one was complaining about his abs being on display. 

We last saw the Smith kids hanging out together while they were vacationing in Hawaii. No blood, sweat and tears that time around ... just doing their best to catch rad waves.

LaVar Ball I'm Not Afraid of Lakers ... Or Magic Johnson

2/16/2018 6:17 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

LaVar Ball is back in the U.S. -- and he's digging in his heels on his threats to the Lakers ... sign my other sons or I'm taking Lonzo Ball somewhere else. 

"Man, who don't want they sons to play all on the same team?" Ball told us in front of his reality TV show crew at LAX ... "Name one father who don't want they sons to play on the same team?"

We asked if Lonzo would REALLY leave if LaVar doesn't get his way -- he looked at the camera and said, "I'll let y'all figure that out."

When it came to Magic Johnson, LaVar tried to deflect -- but ultimately told us he's not afraid of the Lakers' President of Basketball Operations. 

The comments come in the wake of reports Magic was upset with LaVar over Ball's criticism of Lakers' head coach Luke Walton

In the end, Ball says he still believes Lonzo will be the NBA's Rookie of the Year and even gave us a mid-season grade for his son. 

Shocker -- it's an "A."

Wladimir Klitschko Crushes Barbados Beach ... on Daddy-Daughter Date

2/15/2018 11:30 AM PST

Wladimir Klitschko showed off his softer side on a Valentine's Day beach date with Hayden Panettiere in Barbados ... going full Dad-mode so Mom could catch some rays.

The former heavyweight champ spent the day pallin' around with his 3-year-old daughter, Kaya, at Sandy Lane Resort's private beach -- gently, of course.

But, don't get it twisted -- Wlad's still putting dad bods to shame at age 41. The recently retired boxer looked like Michael frickin' Phelps when he hit the water for some snorkeling.

Meanwhile, the "Nashville" star got to lounge on the shore and catch up on some reading ... but never broke out the bikini (sorry, guys).

Of course, the happy couple had to sneak in a makeout sesh to celebrate the holiday.

Get it, Wlad!!

NFL's Marqise Lee Legal War With Cemetery Over Brother's Body

2/15/2018 11:02 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jaguars player Marqise Lee is in a legal battle with an L.A. cemetery that's refusing to allow the WR to dig up and move his brother's body ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Here's the deal ... Lee's brother Terreal Reid was shot and killed in 2006. He was buried in a "multiple plot" grave with 5 other bodies at Angeles Abbey Memorial Park in Compton.

Lee -- a 2nd round pick of the Jags in 2014 who caught 56 balls for 702 yards last season -- has petitioned L.A. Superior Court for the right to "disinter the remains of his brother" and move him to a single plot grave.

According to the docs, Lee says the cemetery has refused to exhume and relocate the body without a court order. 

As for why Terreal was ever buried in a grave with other people ... Lee says his family only chose the grave site back in '06 'cause of the high cost of a single plot.

We spoke to Oscar Olivos, the owner of Angeles Abbey cemetery, who told us before burying a body, families sign contracts that prevent disinterment.

"We do not allow removal after burial because it will disturb the other members."

Lonzo Ball Drops Emotional Tribute Rap Song ... About LaVar

2/15/2018 9:34 AM PST
Breaking News

Tupac had "Dear Mama." Kanye had "Hey Mama."

Lonzo Ball has "LaVar."

The Lakers rookie (and part-time rapper) just dropped his new mixtape, "Born 2 Ball" -- and it ends with a brand new heartfelt song called, "LaVar" ... a lyrical tribute to his father. 

During the 3 minutes and 15 second track, Lonzo calls out the haters and professes his love for his dad. 

Lonzo says his dad is one of the hardest working people he knows who's always had his back since day 1. He also shouts out the Big Baller Brand and mentions that LaVar has been busting his ass to make the brand blow up. 

He also says he doesn't get why so many people hate on BBB. 

Ball also shouts out his brothers -- saying they're all three "killers" on the court. 

To be honest, the track is pretty touching. 

There's more on the mixtape -- including a line where Lonzo calls out Nike saying, "Man, Nike couldn't pay us. Man, they really tried to play us."

Kris Jenner A Wasted Valentine's Day

2/15/2018 7:36 AM PST

Kris Jenner skipped the chocolates and went straight to the champagne, and lots of it, based on video of her Valentine's night party with Khloe Kardashian, Tristan Thompson and, of course, Corey Gamble.

Kris and her kin celebrated at her house Wednesday night with a karaoke party that got funnier by the moment, or the glass. She tried her best to bust out Britney Spears and Sir Mix-a-Lot hits, but the booze was too much.

Mama Jenner was still plenty entertaining though -- Tristan laughed his ass off and Khloe recorded every moment.

The question: Good night for Corey or nightmare?

LaVar Ball Butchers Nas Song ... On 'Lip Sync Battle'

2/14/2018 8:35 AM PST
Breaking News

Oh man ... this is painful. 

LaVar Ball took the mic on "Lip Sync Battle" and decided to do his biggest, ballerest version of the Nas classic, "Hate Me Now" ... and yeah, everyone hates him now.

Including his son, Lonzo Ball.

The Balls competed against each other on the show (airs Thursday) -- Lonzo did "Band and Boujee" by Migos, accompanied by a bunch of twerking girl dancers.

When LaVar got his shot, he tried really hard -- but it became very obvious he didn't really know the words and just sorta jumped around and mouthed a bunch of incorrect lyrics.

Afterward, Lonzo told his dad ... "If I was Nas I'd be mad he put on a performance like that on my song. I'd be mad."

Guessing this ain't gonna help the beef between 'Zo and the NY rap star.

Jake Paul on Logan Paul I Really Don't Blame YouTube My Brother's Gotta Learn

2/14/2018 6:52 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jake Paul isn't making excuses for his big brother, Logan Paul ... telling us YouTube's got every right to drop the hammer, and says his brand hasn't gone unscathed by Logan's antics.

We got Jake Monday at LAX and asked if he thought Logan was getting a fair shake from the platform, which suspended ads on Logan's channel and shelved upcoming projects.

Jake says he gets where YouTube is coming from with its reaction to Logan's latest controversial video -- in which he uses a taser on dead rats. According to him, the company's just protecting its bottom line. He added, his own brand is taking a hit.

As for possibly helping Logan? Doesn't sound like Jake's jumping to do anything ... on camera, anyway.

2/14 -- The suspect has been identified as David Lee White, Jr. of Greensboro. He's currently being held on no bond.

Fantasia Barrino's dealing with another family tragedy -- the death of her oldest nephew, Tyquan ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources ... the singer's 18-year-old nephew died of multiple gunshot wounds Tuesday morning following an argument at a Greensboro, North Carolina residential complex that spilled out into the street.

Paramedics attempted life-saving measures on Ty, and he was transported to Moses Cone Hospital ... but died shortly after. Cops have arrested a 21-year-old suspect, who's been charged with first degree murder.

Barrino posted the sad news on her Instagram Tuesday, saying ... "Auntie is So Sorry Baby. RIP to my Oldest Nephew Please Pray for his Mother and my Brother & his Stepdad." Tyquan, who went by T.W., was the son of Fantasia's musician brother, Ricco.

Ricco tells TMZ ... he's completely devastated, because he didn't get to see T.W. in the morning Tuesday like he usually does, and now he's gone.

It's been a rough stretch for Fantasia's family ... her brother Xavier has been in the hospital for months recovering from a critical motorcycle injury, as well.
