Michelle Obama Lunch in Venice Suits Me Well!!!

6/19/2018 3:45 PM PDT

Michelle Obama might be from the Midwest and live on the East Coast, but no one needs to school her on nailing the business cas' look in L.A.

The former First Lady joined some of her colleagues for lunch at the ritzy Gjelina restaurant in Venice ... easily pulling off the beachy business meeting look thanks to those shades, sandals and soft colors. It was also easy to figure out a big shot was in town ... with her Secret Service motorcade tipping off the locals.

Safe to say that among the topics likely discussed at lunch was the heartbreaking situation that's fueled recent rhetoric when it comes to immigration. As we reported ... Michelle joined Laura Bush and condemned the inhumane practice of keeping children in cages after being separated from their families crossing the border. 

Terrell Owens Raves About HOF Nod ... At Kids' Event

6/19/2018 12:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

For a guy who's blowing off his Hall of Fame induction ceremony, Terrell Owens sure spoke glowingly about the honor at the Boys & Girls Club ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

T.O. -- along with actor Sheldon Bailey -- hit up a B&G Club in L.A. last week and gave the kids a motivational speech about life. It was awesome. Props to all involved. 

But, when it came to talking about his football career, Owens spoke about how much it meant to him to be part of the next class enshrined at the Pro Football HOF in Canton.  

"[The] best thing that you could ever, ever have, and that's the Hall of Fame," Owens explained.

"I'm very fortunate to be a part of 300-something-odd guys of probably 25,000 guys that have played in the National Football League."

Interesting considering Owens recently announced he would NOT attend his induction ceremony in August -- a move that some say is a shot at the Hall and the NFL. 

Owens didn't address the alleged beef -- but made sure to tell the kids to work hard and focus ... and, one day, they can achieve their dreams too! 

Rob Kardashian Blac Chyna's Trying To Sabotage Me I Pay Child Support!!!

6/19/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian pays Blac Chyna child support, and she flat-out lied on social media just to ruin his Father's Day ... according to sources close to Rob.

For those who missed it ... Chyna dissed both her baby daddys on her Instagram Story Sunday in a message that read: "wow Tyga and Rob ... no child support BOSS BITCH ALL 201[8]."

We're told Rob thinks it was just Chyna trying to ruin his Father's Day and egg him on to go after her ... something he's prohibited from doing, according to their custody agreement -- they made an agreement to keep all the negative stuff off social media.

For the most part, there hasn't been a lot of drama between the two recently. We're told Rob pays child support, but wants it drastically lowered because he's not making any money and the $20k a month no longer has a correlation to his ability to pay.

As for their daughter, Dream, we're told Rob never skips a visit. 

Joel McHale My Kids Can Skip College If They Play Fortnite Like Ninja

6/18/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Good news for Joel McHale's kids: you can quit school to play video games!!

Bad news for the McHale children: you just have to be as good at Fortnite as Ninja!!

McHale competed at the Fortnite Pro-Am Tournament earlier this week ... and, since his two kids were with him, we had to ask -- would he let them skip college for the game??

"If they're like Ninja or Myth then, yeah, don't go to college," he told us.

McHale's a funny guy ... but he ain't joking. After all, there's $100 MILLION in Fortnite money up for grabs this season and the way pro gaming is going, the pots are only gonna get bigger!

There is a catch for the McHale boys, though ... Joel says the kids can't just turn on the game "whenever they want" to practice.

Sure sounds like a rigged system to us, Joel.

Wendi McLendon-Covey Shame On Sessions! Concentration Camps Not Different From Border Kids

6/17/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"The Goldbergs" star Wendi McLendon-Covey says there's not much difference between children held at the border and those in concentration camps ... and she's scolding politicians for thinking otherwise. 

We got Wendi at LAX Friday morning, where she shamed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for using the Bible as an excuse for separating kids from their parents who were just gunning for a better life in the U.S.

There have been photos circulating of children allegedly locked up behind fences and in cages, and Wendi says it's like God has indeed left the building.

As for that difference ... Wendi really paints a scary picture. 

Jeremy Meeks Paying His Ex 6 Figures ... Gets Custody, Moving Son to U.K.

6/16/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jeremy Meeks is gonna have his own modern family after striking a deal with his ex-wife that gives him primary custody of their 9-year-old son, and gives her a hefty sum of money ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources tell us the "hot felon" -- turned "still-hot ex-felon" -- and Melissa Meeks reached the agreement shortly after their divorce was finalized earlier this month. Under the terms, we're told, Jeremy gets primary physical custody of Jeremy Jr. and Melissa will get a check ... somewhere in the 6-figure range. 

As we reported, Jeremy and Melissa's original divorce deal had her getting primary physical custody with a 70/30 split in time with each parent. They've flipped that under the new deal and, starting this summer, Jr. will be living in the U.K. with Dad and his gf, Chloe Green.

We're told Jeremy and Chloe have already enrolled Jr. in a private school he'll begin attending in the fall.

The new arrangement allows Jeremy to merge both of his families. Remember, he and Chloe -- the Topshop heiress -- just had a baby of their own.

Now, little Jayden Meeks-Green will grow up with his big bro. 

Congressman Steve King Immigrant Kids Got it Made Detention Centers Like Playgrounds!!!

6/15/2018 2:28 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rep. Steve King doesn't understand the fuss over immigrant children being placed in detention centers -- after separation from their parents -- because he says they're getting great care and having more fun than most American kids.

The Iowa Congressman was in D.C. Friday when he addressed the outcry ... telling us he's visited one of the centers, and found it totally hospitable. He raved about the kids getting exercise, meals, and a warm place to sleep -- not to mention medical treatment that surpasses what they get in their native countries.

Of course, what they they don't have are their parents.

King, a Republican, insinuates the Democrats are spinning this into a controversy, and adds ... the centers were open during Obama's administration and no one complained then.

One side note, relevant to the immigration issue ... King came under fire this week for retweeting British Neo-Nazi Mark Collett's take on immigration. He has not deleted it.

North West Fishy 5th Birthday ... With Mom & Dad

6/15/2018 11:21 AM PDT

Kanye and Kim Kardashian West celebrated North's birthday Friday ... and, while she came back from birthday present shopping with something pink, it wasn't a tutu or a stuffed animal.

Kanye and fam are in the Big Apple for Nas' album release party, but Friday morning the rapper was back on daddy duty with North -- who's celebrating her 5th birthday -- and one of her pals.

North dropped her usual "no pictures, please" line on their way back into their hotel in Midtown, but Kanye scored some major points on the gift ... a cool pink fighting fish. 

The group later emerged from the hotel -- swapping the fish for her mom, Kim -- so looks like North's got a jam-packed itinerary on her big day.

6/15/2018 7:35 AM PDT

"Aquaman" star Jason Momoa might be a fish out of water, but the guy's still chilled -- and hot AF -- doing a romantic picnic date with his wife, Lisa Bonet.

Momoa got to kick it with the missus Thursday in L.A. ... a nice break from all the work he's been doing lately in and around the water. Most recently he was in Hawaii doing reshoots for his superhero blockbuster, and showing off his "Aquaman" skills

The couple got married last year after 12 years together. They have 2 kids together -- 10-year-old Lola and 9-year-old Nakoa-Wolf -- but the picnic was all about some QT. Adults only.  

As they say, distance makes the heart grow fonder ... and they're looking really fond of each other.

Here's Conor McGregor in the middle of a serious PR offensive ... because, hours after trying to show a judge he's not a violent monster, he took his adorable family out for a cute bike ride in the park!

Conor -- along with his girlfriend, Dee Devlin, and their adorable son, Conor Jr. -- peddled out into Central Park on Thursday afternoon ... flanked by Conor's security team and entourage.

After the hearing, Conor told the media he regrets his actions and he's taking the case seriously. 

Conor's facing up to 7 years in prison for the attack -- but, c'mon, you think a judge is gonna look at pics like these and really throw this doting bike-riding family man behind bars??

McGregor is one of the most calculating people on the planet. He knows exactly what he's doing.

Brad Pitt Still Ridin' Solo After Getting More Time With The Kids

6/13/2018 9:08 AM PDT

Brad Pitt seemingly enjoys some me, myself and I time ... because he was seen cruising all by his lonesome just a day after news broke he'd been granted more time with his kids.

Pitt was spotted in London Wednesday riding his bike near a hotel where his estranged wife, Angelina Jolie, is holed up with their six kids. Pitt was dressed casually ... sporting some headphones, a hat and shades.

Reports Tuesday claimed a judge recently ruled Brad have more communication and time with his kids. The stories claimed Jolie is not allowed to monitor phone exchanges between Brad and their children ... and the judge believed any alleged restriction by Jolie could prove to be harmful to the kids.

A plan for visitation between Brad and the youngins was also hammered out for while he's in London.

Lil Tay Coming Back as New, Phony Character ... Says Family Consultant

6/13/2018 8:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Tay going off the radar after being exposed as an exploited child star is only temporary -- 'cause she's got another persona cooking in the kitchen ... so says a family friend.

We got Alex Gelbard -- who used to help manage Tay when she was hot stuff -- out in L.A. Tuesday, and he tells us Tay will be back with something "unique" and different from what fans came to know from the 9-year-old flex rapper.

In case you missed the Tay saga, she and her fam were put on blast after her 'GMA' appearance last month when tons of videos leaked of her being coached, and given what appeared to be hookah to smoke. She's deleted all social media since.

Not only that ... but Tay was found to be a full-on fraud after it was revealed her mom was using her boss's fancy car and her real estate listings to pump up her daughter's profile.

Gelbard's not working with Tay anymore, but he seems optimistic the kid can bounce back. Hanging with Rick Rubin's a great start.

Angelina Jolie Judge Says Let Brad In with the Kids ... Or Lose Physical Custody

6/12/2018 1:07 PM PDT
Breaking News

6/13 -- A spokesperson for Angelina tells us, "This misleading leak is not in the best interests of the children. From the start, Angelina has been focused only on their health and needs, which is why it was so important that this last court hearing be conducted privately."

The statement continues, "It’s deplorable that someone, for their own selfish reasons, leaked selective portions of the confidential and sealed court record to create an inaccurate and unfair picture of what is really happening."Angelina Jolie is dangerously close to losing primary physical custody of her and Brad Pitt's six children if she doesn't switch up the how she lets the kids interact with dad.

According to a new report, the judge in the couple's divorce case believes it's "harmful" to the children if Angelina continues to restrict access to Brad. 

The judge has even laid down a strict new cell phone policy -- Brad will now be able to call and text each child at will -- without Angelina monitoring the convos.

The report details a new custody schedule for the summer too. Brad will see his kids in London for 10 days in early to mid-June, where he can hang with 1 or 2 of 'em at a time for four hours a day. In late June, he'll get 10 hours a day ... and from early to mid-July he'll get the kids for 4 consecutive days. In late July, they'll be with him in L.A. for about a week. 

A child psychologist has to be present while Brad visits the kids in London -- where Angelina is renting a house right now -- and has to make arrangements to have them see their doctors while in CA. When they're across the pond with dad, Jolie can only call once a day.

As for 16-year-old Maddox, he'll get to decide on his own how much time he wants to spend with dad.
