Mel Gibson My 'Passion' Project's No Secret ... But, I'm Not Talkin'

1/31/2018 4:35 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Mel Gibson's not dishing out any details about the reported upcoming sequel to "The Passion of the Christ" ... even if everyone else can't shut up about it.

We got the 'Passion' director leaving E. Baldi restaurant Wednesday and asked if the big news is true -- will there be a 'Resurrection' to his 2004 blockbuster? He certainly doesn't deny it.

Gibson playfully suggests it's an industry secret, but with Jim Caviezel -- aka the dude who plays Jesus -- declaring Mel's sequel is going to be "the biggest film in history" ... it's fair to say the secret's out and the buzz has risen.

For the record, Gibson has talked publicly about a 'Passion' sequel ... telling Stephen Colbert in 2016 the project was about 3 years away. It's just way more real now.

Shemar Moore My Hot Grammy Date Proves I'm Not Gay!

1/30/2018 8:07 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Shemar Moore's heard the rumors he's gay because he's frequently dateless for big events -- but says "Quantico" star Anabelle Acosta should take care of that.

We got Shemar with Anabelle Monday at LAX, on their way back from the Grammys. While they happily posed at the award show, Anabelle was a little camera shy with us. Shemar was dying to tell us about how he hooked up with her.

The "S.W.A.T." star handed out some major props to the people who helped him get in touch with Anabelle. So, did they make a love connection? Check out the video -- for what Shemar says and what they did together.

Will Smith Fresh Prince Toys 'R Coming! Fresh 'Toons Next?

1/30/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Will Smith's fueling rumors of a 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' reboot -- in the cartoon world --  at the very same time some 'Fresh Prince' toys are in the works. Coincidence?

Yeah, it could be ... but here's the deal. Will posted a couple different photos Monday shouting out cartoonist and comic artist Howard Russell's animated interpretation of the beloved '90s sitcom.

Will says he never imagined the 'Fresh Prince' as an animated project. Wonder if the same goes for toys -- because we've learned the company that owns the rights to 'Fresh Prince' just applied to trademark a bunch of new merch.

The gear includes toys, action figures and kids' games, according to docs obtained by TMZ.

Like we said, the timing of Will's post and the trademark application could be coincidence. Either way, looks like fans will be getting a new dose of 'Fresh Prince' ... at least in toy stores.

Liam Hemsworth With This Ring I Thee Something

1/27/2018 7:39 AM PST


Liam Hemsworth sure looks like he's wearing a wedding ring.

Liam was tooling around Malibu Friday wearing a gold band that screams "married," but both he and fiancee Miley Cyrus have done this before.  

They got engaged -- the second time around -- in 2016 and there were multiple reports the 2 got hitched since, but various people in their lives have called BS on the stories.

Miley has said no wedding plans so far, so take it for what it's worth ... but it sure looks like a wedding ring.

Oprah No Prez DNA Remark Doesn't Mean She Won't Run

1/25/2018 1:28 PM PST

There's a lot of buzz Oprah Winfrey will definitely NOT run for President in 2020, based on a recent interview she did ... but there's one crucial fact everyone's leaving out.

Oprah told InStyle she doesn't "have the DNA" to run for the White House -- which seemed to shut the door on the speculation that started after her Golden Globes speech. Problem is ... that "DNA" comment was made 3 weeks BEFORE the Globes.

That's spelled out in the "In Style" article, but almost no one's talking about that part of the story. You see the difference -- Oprah clearly could have changed her mind after the response to her Globes speech.

There's also the fact Stedman Graham said she'd "absolutely do it" if the people wanted her to run. We're guessing Stedman wouldn't have said that without some direct knowledge.

Sen. Marco Rubio told us Oprah might not be cut out for politics, but again ... he didn't know it was an old remark.

So, yeah ... we're saying there's still a chance.

Jesse Williams Alleged GF 'Mama C' Revealed ... She's Just a Friend

1/25/2018 12:54 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Jesse Williams didn't violate a custody order by letting his kids hang out with a woman his kids call "Mama C" ... because she's not his girlfriend, according to sources close to Jesse.

We broke the story ... Williams' ex, Aryn Drake-Lee, claims he violated their custody agreement by introducing their 2 kids to his new gf ... Ciarra Pardo ... well, at least Aryn thinks she's a gf.

According to our sources ... Jesse and Ciarra, a visual artist, have known each other for a very long time, but are not a couple and don't ever hook up. In fact, we're told Ciarra's been a pal since the kids were born, and Aryn knows her.

The two were recently on a trip together, joined by other friends, to Brazil.

As we reported, Aryn says the kids call Pardo "Mama C" and claims Jesse's been taking them to her place since October. Our sources say the kids have always called Ciarra "Mama C" and also "Auntie C."

Ronda Rousey No Royal Rumble For Me ... No Deal Yet!

1/25/2018 6:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ronda Rousey is slamming the door on rumors she'll make her official WWE debut at the Royal Rumble on Jan 28 -- telling TMZ Sports it'll be physically impossible ... 'cause she'll be out of the country!

"I'm actually leaving to Colombia right now to finish shooting 'Mile 22' and won't be back until mid February," Rousey says. 

"Mile 22" is an action flick starring Mark Wahlberg and John Malkovich

But the bigger issue ... Ronda says there is no official contract in place between her and WWE, despite a recent dinner meeting with high-ranking WWE exec Triple H

Don't rule it out though ... Rousey seemed flattered by some recent smack talk from WWE Raw womens' champ Alexa Bliss

So, what's Ronda's long-term career plans? She talked about that, too!

Kim Kardashian Don't be Fooled ... Baby Name's not Louis Vuitton-Themed

1/18/2018 1:35 PM PST
Exclusive Details

The name of Kim and Kanye's third child remains a mystery but, despite juicy Internet speculation, it has NOTHING to do with Louis Vuitton.

We're told Kim's Instagram post of the iconic Louis Vuitton print Wednesday that whipped fans into a frenzy was meant to honor Kim Jones, not drop a baby name hint.

We're told Jones -- LV's menswear designer since 2011 -- showed his latest collection on the runway Wednesday night, so Kim K's post was simply a shout-out. Jones also once designed a shoe with Kanye.

Adding fuel to this Louis Vuitton baby name theory is the fact Kim also shared a shot of her trash bins plastered with the LV logo a few days before their baby girl was born, but again ... we're told it's just a coincidence.

As for any true leads on the baby name ... Kanye's no help either.

Kathie Lee Gifford Kris Jenner Won't Co-Host 'Today' ... Tomorrow, Or the Next Day

1/18/2018 6:47 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kathie Lee Gifford is shutting down rumors Kris Jenner will replace Hoda Kotb as her co-host on 'Today' ... even though she says she'd make a great one.

We got Kathie Wednesday leaving Michael's New York and asked if a Hollywood rumor going around that Kris was interested and "campaigning hard" for the co-host gig was true -- after Hoda permanently replaced Matt Lauer from 7 to 9 AM.

Kathie assures us Hoda's sticking around in the 4th hour -- apparently, she's under a long-term contract. 

What's interesting ... Kathie kinda seems to leave the door open for a hypothetical Jenner run -- keyword, hypothetical.

Ted Cruz The Internet's a Strange Place

1/18/2018 6:17 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Senator Ted Cruz doesn't have problems with the truthfulness of Donald Trump's physical results, but he has a big problem with people who are throwing his personal stats around.

Cruz was on Capitol Hill Wednesday when our photog asked whether he believed Trump was really 6'3". Cruz had no issues with that, but when the photog asked about his own height -- reportedly 5'10" -- he went off on a strange place he calls the Internet.

Bottom line ... Ted's clearly a believer that size matters.

Kim and Kanye We're Not Selling Baby Pics ... It's Just Immoral

1/17/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been offered multi-million dollar deals to provide first photos of their new baby ... and they have REJECTED all of them.

Sources familiar with the offers tell TMZ, various websites and magazines started making offers months ago. All of the offers were north of a million dollars and several outlets offered between $2 and $5 million.

The offers were never entertained ... they were immediately rejected. We're told Kim and Kanye would never consider taking money for the first photos of the baby ... doing so would violate their morals.

But there's more ... Kim and Kanye place the security and safety of their family above all else. They realize the media will eventually get pictures of the baby but they want to do it on their own timetable ... when they're comfortable the safety of the baby is secured. 

As for what they've done in the past ... Kim and Kanye posted the first pic of North 2 months after she was born. As for Saint, they also waited a little more than 2 months.

So check Kim's Instagram in March.

1/14/2018 3:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick seem to be rounding out the first lap of their rumored romance -- 'cause now they're dining together out in the open ... as seen here.

The Packers QB and NASCAR driver were spotted grabbing a bite Saturday night at The Mission Mexican restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona, accompanied by a small group of people. 

Eyewitnesses tell TMZ Aaron and Danica sat next to each other, but didn't show off any kind of PDA while there. We're also told other patrons recognized them, but left them alone.

Rumors have been swirling about the reported couple, who apparently got together shortly after the holidays. Word around town is ... things are moving fast with Aaron after Danica split from her BF of 5 years, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., late last year. 

Looks like they have plenty of time on their hands to cozy up -- Aaron's season is over after the Packers didn't make the playoffs, and Danica's set to retire soon. Kismet!

1/12/2018 3:32 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner is NOT at the hospital right now pushing out her first child, despite increased online speculation swirling that she's in labor ... TMZ has learned.

Multiple sources close to Kylie and Travis Scott tell us ... Kylie isn't due this month, and she hasn't gone into premature labor. Rumors began heating up Friday that Kylie had checked into Cedars-Sinai in L.A. -- where all the other Kardashian sisters gave birth -- but we're told it's definitely not true.

Adding fuel to the fire, fans began sharing a photo from Travis with the caption, "Make it home to ya one way or another" ... suggesting he was heading to be by Kylie's side for the birth.

Turns out ... that post was from December -- not today.

So ... everybody just calm down ... for now.
