Donald Trump Presses Cavs Owner On LeBron James ... At White House

6/28/2017 12:19 PM PDT
Breaking News

Even President Donald Trump wants to know what's going on with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers ... so, he went right to the owner and asked him. 

Dan Gilbert happened to be at the White House Wednesday -- along with the Chicago Cubs (who are in town to play the Nationals) and Trump brought them all together for a high level introduction.

While introducing Gilbert to guys like Joe Maddon, Kris Bryant, Jon Lester and others ... he turned to Gilbert and asked how he's doing with LeBron James

It appeared Gilbert responded, "Good, yeah."

Interesting situation for two reasons -- First, Bron isn't a Trump fan. Second, there's talk LeBron could leave Cleveland after next season.

Gilbert didn't drop any bombshells ... it was just interesting watching him handle that situation.

Still, Trump enjoyed himself -- and then went on to talk about health care.

Bill Cosby Calls Sexual Assault Town Hall Meetings 'Propaganda'

6/27/2017 1:38 PM PDT

Bill Cosby just lashed out in the most bizarre way, saying reports that he's conducting town hall meetings on sexual assault are just "propaganda" ... despite the fact his P.R. people announced the meetings.

Cosby just said, "The current propaganda that I am going to conduct a sexual assault tour is false any further information about public plans will be given at the appropriate time."

Here's the problem ... Cosby's spokespeople, Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson came on "TMZ Live" Thursday and said the town halls would absolutely take place. We even questioned them about statements Cosby might make that could be used against him in his sexual assault retrial, and they said Cosby's lawyers didn't have a problem with it -- that they would coach him on what to say and not say.

Wyatt and Benson made similar comments the day before on "Good Day Alabama."

Khloe Kardashian Not Pregnant Despite 'Dad + Mom' Post with Tristan

6/26/2017 11:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are calling themselves "Dad + Mom" -- but DON'T FREAK OUT ... they're not preggo!!!

The reality star posted some pics from her surprise 33rd bday party from over the weekend -- including an image of her and TT kissing with the caption, "Dad + Mom."

Khloe has recently talked about having kids with Tristan on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" -- saying, "He wants to have about five or six kids with me and that’s lovely. We could start at one and we could grow from there."

We reached out to sources connected to the couple to find out what's going down in KK's uterus -- but everyone says "Dad + Mom" are just lovey dovey nicknames ... nothing more.

Donald Trump Says Obama May Have Planted Secret Recorders In Oval Office

6/23/2017 6:46 AM PDT

Donald Trump has created an outlandish justification for suggesting 42 days ago that his conversation with then FBI Director James Comey may have been recorded ... and he's pointing the finger at Obama.

Trump said on "Fox & Friends" Friday the reason he made his now-famous oblique reference to recording Comey was that the Obama administration was so deep into surveillance it was possible his predecessor wired the Oval Office.

The suggestion ... the wiring was so surreptitious, no one noticed it when Trump moved in.

Melania was by her husband's side and made it clear ... she's all in now and doesn't miss The Big Apple.

Scott Disick & Bella Thorne Together Again Partying & Drinking HARD

6/23/2017 6:36 AM PDT

Scott Disick and Bella Thorne are a glutton for punishment ... back together, partying and drinking hard ... and ain't hiding a thing.

The Lord and 19-year-old actress were raging well into the wee hours Friday after hitting up 1 OAK for Lana Del Rey's birthday party. They kept it going at an after-party in Bev Hills ... arriving at the crib just after 2 AM and leaving together along with another lady friend at 4 AM.

Scott, famously an alcoholic, had no problem chugging a Corona. His heavy drinking has friends worried sick. You'll recall he went to rehab in 2015 but doesn't appear to be slowing down.

As for Bella ... so much for feeling used.

DeMario Jackson I Didn't Know Corinne Had a BF

6/19/2017 12:01 PM PDT

DeMario Jackson says he wouldn't have hooked up with Corinne Olympios if he knew she had a BF ... this from the guy who got kicked off "The Bachelorette" for having a GF.

DeMario was out Sunday in L.A. when a pap asked if he would have done what he did in the pool with Corinne if he'd known? DeMario says absolutely not.

It's interesting though -- DeMario was booted from Rachel Lindsay's 'Bachelorette' season and got made into a villain after he was caught lying about his then-girlfriend ... who isn't a big fan of his to this day.

DeMario's aware of the irony here ... or at least he seems to be.

President Obama Spills the Tea ... Jay & Bey Poppin' Twin Girls?!

6/16/2017 7:38 AM PDT

President Barack Obama is great at many things, but keeping Jay Z and Beyonce's baby secrets might not be one of 'em.

Obama recorded a message congratulating his pal, Jay, for making it into the Songwriters Hall of Fame -- but during the message he broke major baby news -- possibly -- by saying Jay was about to top him in the daughter department.

As 44 put it ... "He's gonna have me beat once those 2 twins show up."

There's a lot of ways to interpret that, but we're pretty sure the Beyhive's running with ... Blue Ivy's getting baby sisters!

Also, did Obama just put to rest all the rumors Bey's already had the twins?

Again. Possibly.

DeMario Jackson's Ex He's 'Sh***y' But Would Not Take Advantage Of a Drunk Corinne

6/16/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DeMario Jackson's ex-gf -- the woman who exposed him as a villain on national TV -- is actually coming to his defense in the Corinne Olympios scandal ... but she has a strange way of doing it.

Lexi Thexton claims DeMario is nothing more than a "30-year-old man child" who parties way too much -- but also says there's no way the "Bachelor in Paradise" star would knowingly take advantage of a drunk woman ... as Corinne insinuated when she declared she's a victim.

For Lexi to say anything supportive about her ex is a big deal. Mind you, she also called him a "sh***y guy" who's completely self-absorbed ... among a list of other insults. She did offer a theory about what really happened with Corinne -- and strongly believes it's more about 2 people getting too drunk.

For non-'Bachelorette' viewers ... Lexi made a surprise appearance on the show, calling out DeMario for trying to woo Rachel Lindsay while still dating her. He got booted off the show that very same episode.

Scott Disick Time to Smell the Roses, Bella ... Kourtney Is Too!

6/15/2017 12:40 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Scott Disick is mending burned bridges one flower bouquet at a time, starting with Bella Thorne.

Bella shared a pic of a gorgeous pink rose and peonies bouquet Tuesday night, and our sources say Scott's the mystery guy who ordered 'em.

Amazingly, we're told they're talking again after that Cannes vacation nightmare -- and Scott even invited her to his place once he got back from his international bender. Yes, she accepted.

As for her ex, Gregg Sulkin, with whom she's been spotted recently ... we're told it's not serious

One note of caution for Bella, or just a huge coincidence -- Kourtney Kardashian posted a pic of flowers she got ... a few hours before Bella got hers, and it's an oddly similar bouquet.

Just sayin' ... 

Mark Wahlberg Celtics Should Trade #1 Pick ... Bring On Jimmy Butler!

6/14/2017 11:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Don't pack for Beantown just yet, Markelle Fultz ... if Mark Wahlberg has his way you'll NEVER be a Celtic, cause he tells TMZ Sports the C's should swap the #1 pick for his boy, Jimmy Butler.

Or another big star ...

We got Wahlberg out in NYC and asked him about the Celtics' envious dilemma, whether to use the #1 pick in this year's draft on a college stud (probably Fultz) or trade for an elite NBA player.

Mark -- a huge Celtics fan -- made his position clear, he wants to slang the pick, and wouldn't mind getting his good friend -- and Bulls star -- Jimmy Butler back in return.

Your move, Danny Ainge ... second place for next five years could be yours.

Game LeBron's Legacy Is Tarnished He Ain't MJ, He Ain't Kobe

6/13/2017 6:39 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LeBron James' hoops legacy is like your grandmother's old silver ... TARNISHED ... that's according to The Game who said this latest Finals loss puts MJ and Kobe ahead of LBJ FOREVER.

We got Chuck Taylor out at The Parlor in L.A. right after the final buzzer and asked the hip-hop superstar what another loss on the big stage means for LeBron.

FYI -- James is now 3-5 all-time in the NBA Finals ... not exactly dominant, but not too shabby either. 

Game DOESN'T hold back (when does he?) saying LeBron isn't on the level of The Mamba & his Airness, 'cause he's just done too much losing.

Careful next time you're in Cleveland, Jayceon (yeah right, he'll be fine).

Scarlett Johansson Her Weekend Update? Date Night with Colin Jost

6/13/2017 7:11 AM PDT

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost are NOT a one-off -- she and the 'SNL'er had another night out on the town.

They reportedly hit Manhattan's Upper East Side Saturday night for dinner and drinks at East Pole. They were seen holding hands through the meal ... according to the NY Post.

Colin and Scarlett were first seen together last month after she made a guest appearance on 'SNL's' season finale. They were reportedly hanging all over each other and making out at the cast after-party that night.

By all accounts the dinner was much more chill, but had the look of a more serious date.

Scarlett's in the middle of divorcing Romain Dauriac

Props to Colin -- no better time to put a rebound on your stat line.

'Bachelorette' Star Peter Kraus H.S. Yearbook Shows 'Bachelor' Fame Was Always His Goal

6/13/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of Rachel Lindsay's guys on "The Bachelorette" was determined, or even desperate, to be on the show ever since he was in high school.

Fan fave Peter Kraus listed his future plans in his 2005 high school yearbook. The senior at Edgewood High in Madison, WI wrote ... "Go to art school, become famous in one way or another, be on The Bachelor, live happily." 

Welp ... he can knock being on the show off his bucket list, which arguably means ... he's accomplished the "famous" part too.

There's fan speculation Peter's the guy Rachel picks, and actually gets engaged to at the end of the season. She does seem really into him.

Makes ya wonder if she knows about Peter's high school ambitions.
