Keaton Jones' Mom Those Confederate Pics ... Supposed to Be 'Ironic and Funny'

12/12/2017 6:46 AM PST
Breaking News

Keaton Jones' mother is defending her social media posts with the Confederate flag and insisting she and her family are not racists.

Kimberly Jones told 'GMA' the photos were intended to be "extreme" and "ironic and funny."

Kimberly said she would take it back if she could. She's made her social media pages private since the backlash started.

As TMZ first reported, Kimberly's posts also hindered online fundraising efforts. One GoFundMe account, which raised $58k for Keaton's case, is now on hold. The person who started the page stresses he has nothing to do with Kimberly ... and only wants to help Keaton.

12/12/2017 7:07 AM PST

Dwayne Johnson is celebrating a huge debut, and it ain't on a movie screen ... it's in his longtime girlfriend's womb.

The Rock and Lauren Hashian proudly showed off her baby bump in Hollywood Monday night at the 'Jumanji' premiere event. The photo op came just a few hours after they announced they're expecting their 2nd child together. The couple's first -- 2-year-old Jasmine Lia -- helped reveal they're having a girl. Again.

Dwayne also has an older daughter from his previous relationship.

Three girls. As the proud daddy put it ... #tequilatime.

Chris Brown Chill Out ... Monkey Is Mine, Not Royalty's!!!

12/12/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown knows better than to give Royalty a pet monkey ... which is why he didn't.

Sources close to CB tell TMZ ... the baby capuchin monkey everyone saw his 3-year-old daughter cradling actually belongs to Chris. We're told he bought the exotic pet about 2 months ago ... and her name's Fiji.

As we reported ... Chris got skewered online for appearing to have bought Royalty the monkey ... with scores of fans saying the monkey posed a danger to Royalty, and belongs in the wild.

We're told Fiji's permanent address will be CB's crib, and that's the only place Royalty will get to see her. The monkey's not allowed to go to her mom, Nia Guzman's house. While that might ease safety concern's for Royalty, Fiji still won't be in the wild.

Our sources say Chris really wanted her because his idol Michael Jackson had Bubbles, the chimp. It was pretty obvious he was heading down this path when Chris flipped over one of Mally Mall's pet primates.

Keaton Jones GoFundMe Problems Account On Hold, $58k Left Hanging!!!

12/11/2017 2:22 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

There's a big hiccup in online fundraising efforts for Keaton Jones -- one GoFundMe page has been shut down altogether, and another's on hold with nearly $60,000 unspoken for.

GoFundMe tells us the page labeled "Stand Up for Keaton," which was opened 2 days ago, is no longer accepting donations. Since Keaton's anti-bullying message went viral over the weekend, the page has pulled in $58,249 in donations ... however the guy who started it is putting the charity on hold. GoFundMe says it needs to contact Keaton's mom, Kimberly Jones, to ensure she's the beneficiary ... since the guy who started the page doesn't know her. So far, the company's been unable to reach her.

There was a second GoFundMe page, purportedly started by Kimberly herself which solicited money for Keaton's Christmas gifts. Sources close to the situation tell us that was immediately shut down by GoFundMe due to fraud concerns -- namely, whether it was really started by Kimberly.

Further complicating the fundraising are social media postings from the real Kimberly Jones. As we reported ... photos of her with the Confederate flag and comments about whining "butt hurt Americans" have sparked an online backlash.

The guy behind the "Stand Up for Keaton" page even reacted, saying, "THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE MOM!!" He added he doesn't know the Jones family, but just wanted to help a kid who's been bullied.

Anna Faris Leader of the Pack But Jack's Got A Better View

12/11/2017 8:48 AM PST

Anna Faris' posse is back to a party of 3.

Anna was out Sunday in L.A. taking a stroll with her boyfriend, Michael Barrett, and her son, Jack

Jack looks pretty chill up on Barrett's shoulders and it shouldn't come as a surprise since Anna and Michael have been spending plenty of time together. The two were spotted just a couple weeks ago when they went house hunting together.

As for things with estranged hubby Chris Pratt, the two filed for divorce simultaneously Dec. 1 ... and they're asking for joint custody of Jack.

'Life In Pieces' Toddler Star Could Buy a Benz!

12/11/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

 "Life in Pieces" actress Ana Sophia Heger's stashing $70k in the bank and co-starring with James Brolin and Colin Hanks ... while most kids her age are just trying to color within the lines. 

We got ahold of 4-year-old Ana's contract for the hit series -- filed in court because she's a minor -- and it's clear she's already a seasoned pro. She was guaranteed $10k an episode for 2 guest appearances playing Lark.

Kid must've killed it 'cause now she has 5 more episodes to her credit ... at that same rate. That's a whole lotta animal crackers!

Sophia also gets her own trailer complete with TV, DVD player, sofa, bathroom, microwave and more. Beats building a fort with pillows and blankets.

'Ant-Man' Actress Doubles Down!! Sequel Money So Sweet

12/9/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Ant-Man" actress Abby Ryder Fortson's paycheck ain't shrinking like her superhero dad in the movie, because she's bringing home twice the dough for the sequel ... TMZ has learned. 

We got a hold of her minor's contract for the 'Ant-Man' franchise and Abby -- who's only 9, mind you --  was guaranteed $140k if she gets a role in an "Ant-Man" sequel. That's more than twice the $67.5k she got for the first film.

"Ant-Man and the Wasp" hits theaters next July 2018. Might be too soon for buzz, but IF Abby makes it into a third flick, she'll haul in $215k.

In this case, the small guys are winning big.

Beyonce Holiday Shopping's On Target!!!

12/7/2017 3:24 PM PST

Beyonce let her hair down and threw on some shades, but it wasn't enough to disguise her during a Target shopping spree.

Tar-jay customers and Lady Bey had a close encounter Thursday in San Clemente, CA. Looks like she was cruising the toy aisles with her mom, Tina. Shhh!!! Don't tell Blue Ivy ... or Sir or Rumi.

We see a kiddo in one of the pics but it's hard to tell who it is. In any event, score one for Bey's pockets, and for Target shoppers.

Your move, Kmart and Walmart.

Cynthia Bailey on L.A. Fires Hope You're Safe, Chrissy Here's What I'd Grab If I Were You

12/7/2017 8:32 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cynthia Bailey and Chrissy Teigen are alike in a lot of ways -- 'cause they'd both be super moms in an emergency fire situation.

We got the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star at LAX and briefed her on the latest news about the L.A. fires and people evacuating -- like Chrissy, for example.

We asked Cynthia what she would take in a hot second, were she in that same crisis. Turns out her priorities line up pretty closely with her pal Chrissy -- with a few exceptions.

Cynthia has 2 items on her list Chrissy left behind. Not that there's anything wrong with Oreos. 

Steven Tyler Opens Janie's House for Battered, Broken Girls

12/7/2017 7:29 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Steven Tyler wants to pay it forward, and he did so in a big way Wednesday when he opened Janie's House for abused and troubled girls.

Steven was on hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony just outside of Atlanta and his heart was busting with pride.  

It's a pretty incredible place ... the facility can house and provide therapy to 30 battered and sexually abused girls. It's the first of its kind launched through Steven's Janie's Fund.

Steven has had an incredible career in music, but he makes it clear to our photog ... Janie's House is his crowning accomplishment.

Matt Lauer Nothing But Time To Be a Hands-On Dad

12/4/2017 10:53 AM PST

Matt Lauer's punching in for his new gig ... picking up kids for his elementary school carpool.

Lauer was driving his 11-year-old son, Thijs, to school Monday morning, and also scooped up one of his kid's friends too. Coming off a $25 million/year gig at NBC ... we're guessing the disgraced news anchor is immediately in the running for world's richest school bus driver.

Interestingly, Lauer is still rocking his wedding ring ... as he was last week too.

His wife, Annette Roque, reportedly left town in the days after his firing.
