'Black Panther' Actor Got a Grand a Day To Play Young Killmonger

3/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT

"Black Panther" is a smashing success and producers probably always knew it would be ... because they paid good money to a kid hardly even in the movie.

10-year-old Seth Carr -- who plays the child version of Michael B. Jordan's character Killmonger in the movie -- got paid $1,000 a day on set ... according to his contract obtained by TMZ.

It is unclear how many days young Seth worked on the film, but his guaranteed paycheck was at least $7,654 ... plus any future residuals.

Not bad at all for the few minutes of screen time.

Along with Young Killmonger, Carr is known for his roles on the shows "Bosch" and "Knight Squad" ... and also played Young Holt on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." 

Ray J & Princess Love Baby Registry Screams ... It's a Girl!!!

3/16/2018 12:50 AM PDT

Ray J and Princess Love are having a baby, and they've kept the sex of the kid under wraps -- but if you peep the registry they got for their shower ... it's pretty clear they're having a girl.

Ray and Princess' baby registry from Petit Tresor is littered with pink -- from onesies to cribs and literally everything in between -- so you can kinda only come to one logical conclusion. 

The gifts ain't cheap either. A baby basket made of cashmere runs about $2,800, while a travel crib costs about $300. A lot of outfits range between $25 and $200 ... and a damn rocking sheep (horses are out apparently) will set their guests back nearly $1,000!

Speaking of the actual baby shower ... sources tell us Ray J and Princess Love are hosting it this weekend in L.A. at a top-of-the-line hotel, and they're not skimping on expenses. We're told the whole thing ended up costing more than $250,000.

As we reported ... Ray J announced Princess was pregnant this past fall. The kid's due sometime this summer. 

Anything for baby ... girl.

McCartney & Witherspoon Their Spawn Come Together

3/14/2018 2:29 PM PDT

Reese Witherspoon and Paul McCartney now have a special connection through their own flesh and blood, and the big question -- is it a case of love me do ... or hello, goodbye?

Reese and Ryan Phillippe's daughter, 18-year-old Ava Phillippe, was out strolling the streets of London earlier this week with Paul's eldest grandson, Arthur Donald McCartney, who's also 18.

Ava seemed pretty smitten with the dude, and we can't blame her ... Arthur's kind of a stud with Beatles-esque charm flowing through his veins. Ava and Arthur also stopped off for a drink at a bar. Chill, they're legal to booze in the UK.

BTW ... Arthur's mom is Mary McCartney -- Paul and Linda's first child together.

Hard to tell if Ava and Arthur are just in the friend zone or starting a romance.

We'd say all they need is love, but we're guessing Arthur uses that line all the time: Y'know my granddad wrote that.

Breaking News

Nikolas Cruz could be put to death by the state of Florida, if he's found guilty for the slaying of the 17 victims in Parkland.

Prosecutors announced Tuesday they will be seeking the death penalty in the case. In new docs, they call the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School "especially heinous, atrocious or cruel" ... as well as "cold, calculated and premeditated." 

Also in the docs, obtained by TMZ, prosecutors say they want to pick the mental health expert to evaluate Cruz -- that's presuming the defense raises his mental health as a mitigating factor in the crime.

Florida uses lethal injection to execute prisoners.

3/12/2018 12:50 AM PDT

Khloe Kardashian's baby girl will be born with several silver spoons, dripping in Versace and other designer names ... TMZ has learned. 

As we showed you, Khloe and Kris Jenner went shopping last week in WeHo, and one of the high-end boutiques they hit up was Couture Kids. We did some digging and found out Khloe's registered there, and her wish list totals over $90,000 ... and counting!

So, what does that kinda dough get ya? How about a $10k crib, or a Versace baby blanket for $365 and, because ya gotta have it ... the $600 Versace changing bag! Fit for only the finest baby deuces.

Khloe and Tristan Thompson's little one will also be decked out in a Givenchy Kids leather jacket for a mere $1,450. And that's just a taste.

Our sources tell us most of the items in Khloe's registry are pink, but another source says they think Khloe came close to picking out one of everything in the store. 

Mike Tyson's Daughter Plays Tennis w/ Novak Djokovic ... Scores on Him, Too

3/11/2018 4:12 PM PDT

If you needed further proof that Mike Tyson's daughter is LEGIT when it comes to tennis ... look no further than this clip of her schooling one Novak Djokovic

Tyson's 9-year-old, Milan Tyson, was seen playing what appears to be a friendly match Saturday with the Serbian tennis pro at the Indian Wells Masters tournament in CA. 

Whether they were just volleying for fun, or actually taking it seriously ... Milan scored on Novak either way, at least a couple different times. Apparently, Novak approached Milan and asked her to hit with him ... which left the kid shocked and grateful on social media. 

Mike was also thankful to Novak, giving him props on Twitter saying ... "@DjokerNole you are the realest. Thanks for hitting with my daughter #milantyson. You are her tennis idol." 

Milan's proven herself as a budding tennis star ... this can only help her resume. 

Tori Spelling Reservations for 7

3/9/2018 6:14 PM PST

Tori Spelling and her husband put on a united front -- with 5 mini-me's in tow -- just days after he called cops to check on her.

Tori and hubby Dean McDermott brought the entire brood to break bread at Black Bear Diner Friday in Tarzana ... looking like a close-knit fam bam. It's a stark contrast to what's unfolded in the last 9 days.

TMZ broke the story ... Dean called cops Wednesday to check on Tori after she left home with one of their kids. It's unclear what had Dean so worried. Cops created a huge scene when they tracked down Tori at a doctor's office. They spoke to her and determined a crime hadn't been committed.

As we reported ... Dean called 911 last week to report she was having some sort of breakdown.

Our sources say they're not planning on changing much, just updating things a bit. The new host will be wearing the signature green striped polo shirt and khaki pants that previous hosts wore, but likely without pleats in the pants.

As for dream celebrity guests for the revival, we're told they wouldn't turn down Chrissy Teigen, John Legend and their daughter, Luna.

Mel B Ex-Husband Claims She's a Lying Drug Addict and Alcoholic

3/8/2018 4:31 PM PST

Mel B is a drug addict and alcoholic who has walked into doors and has been hospitalized for ODs, and she has covered up the bruises and other injuries from her addiction by claiming it was domestic violence ... so says her ex-husband, Stephen Belafonte.

Belafonte just filed legal docs in an effort to get visitation rights in connection with his stepdaughter, Angel, whose biological father is Eddie Murphy. Belafonte, who has been with Angel almost since her birth, claims Mel B is concocting lies about domestic violence to turn Angel against him.

He refers to a 2014 incident in London where Mel B claims he bashed her head into a door. Belafonte says, in fact, what happened was that Mel B ODd on drugs, was hospitalized and sustained bruises from the EKG machine and IV during her stay in the hospital, and falsely claimed it was the result of abuse.

He says she is so addicted to drugs and alcohol she walks into walls because she's drunk in the middle of the day. He says she is so wasted sometimes she will pull down her pants and try to urinate on the couch in front of the kids.

He also notes in his legal docs, obtained by TMZ, her claims that he forced her to have 3-ways is a lie.  He says he has videos where Mel B initiates and records the trysts and looks into the camera and says, "That's hot!" and "I like it."

Mel claimed in docs Stephen showed the kids ISIS beheadings. He says this is a blatant lie and he hasn't even searched for such videos.

Belafonte says he sent Mel B's therapist text messages, pleading with him to stop medicating her, warning him she could become another Michael Jackson.

Florida Shooting Survivor Family Goes To FBI Over Online Threats

3/8/2018 12:40 AM PST

The family of outspoken Florida shooting survivor, David Hogg, is turning to the FBI after receiving several death threats online, including a particularly disturbing one from an NRA supporter.

The 17-year-old Hogg has been one of Parkland's most vocal gun reform advocates. His mother, Rebecca Boldrick, tells us that they've decided to go to the FBI after someone wrote in a comment on one of Rebecca's Facebook photos, “You can change your settings, but you can never change your faces, your whole family is exposed because of your piece of s*** kid."

The person who posted the comment called out her son's upcoming birthday, saying it "will be an interesting event" before co-signing the NRA and the right to bear arms, which the Hoggs are taking as a death threat.

We've confirmed the FBI has been contacted. Hogg's father is also an ex-FBI agent. Rebecca says they've also put in calls to Facebook as well as the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, since the commentor's FB profile says he hails from Canada.

In a statement, Rebecca tells TMZ the family understands that, while some people don’t agree with their anti-gun message, that shouldn't give them the right to threaten or intimidate her family, particularly through social media. She says any threats they receive will have consequences.

Kris Jenner Hooks Khloe Up with High-End Baby Stuff

3/8/2018 12:30 AM PST

Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian took a mother-daughter shopping trip for baby gear -- and Grandma spared no expense loading up Khloe and Tristan's spawn with the good stuff.

We spotted all 3 -- mom, daughter and baby bump -- out in WeHo Wednesday hitting up various baby stores, and we're told Kris dropped at least $8k on goodies and furniture ... just in ONE place! 

Our sources say they hit Petit Tresor to scoop up 3 giant stuffed giraffes. We know, we know ... how much for the giraffes in the window? We're told Kris dropped $3,600 just for those. She also purchased a pink nursery glider chair, with matching ottoman, for $4,200 -- and threw in another $550 for a silver high chair.

That'd be plenty for anyone, but we're told their spree continued at several other boutiques ... so, God only knows what the total damage was.

As we reported ... the TMZ Celebrity Tour bus happened to drive by while the ladies were shopping, giving fans quite a sighting.
