'The Dark Tower' Young Star Will Make Big Bucks IF He's in Sequels

1/22/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Taylor -- the young actor who plays Jake in "The Dark Tower" -- got a nice payday for his work in the film, but the big bucks are (hopefully) yet to come ... TMZ has learned.

According to the 16-year-old's contract ... Tom banked $125k for his role in the movie alongside Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey -- which is nice -- but will make double if he makes it into a sequel ... and $500k if there's a third installment. He'll also haul in $30k per episode if he lands the Jake role in a TV adaptation of Stephen King's story.

Here's the problem -- the movie massively disappointed critics after its summer release and reportedly barely broke even at the box office, taking in $111 million worldwide.

Since then, talk of a sequel's been muted, and even King has expressed concern about a TV project ... saying it would probably need to be a complete reboot.

Guess that's just show business, kid.

Exclusive Details

Kodak Black got busted after cops saw his infant child surrounded by drugs and a handgun during an Instagram Live broadcast.

As we reported, the rapper got arrested Thursday in Florida and was booked for 7 charges ... including drug possession, child neglect and grand theft of a firearm. According to police docs, obtained by TMZ, officers responded to Kodak's home after someone observed the IG vid of multiple men in a bathroom rolling joints and playing with a handgun.

Police say the final straw came when Kodak's kid was brought into the bathroom, and was just inches away from a lit joint, and the weapon. Police say Kodak did nothing to get the child away from the danger.

The IG Live broadcast was still rolling when police came into the house.

According to docs, police found weed out in plain view, and got a search warrant. They ended up finding 94.9 grams of marijuana in his bedroom closet.

They say his safe contained cash and a loaded Glock with 9 rounds, and there was a Beretta handgun in his office. The Beretta was reported stolen in December, hence the grand theft charge.

Sources tell us Kris recently purchased 3 Silver Cross Balmoral Prams -- 2 black, 1 white -- at the Couture Kids baby store on Robertson Blvd. in WeHo, which cost $2,699 each. That's $8,097, if you're counting.

We're also told she was gifted 2 Silver Cross wave strollers, which normally cost $1,299 each. Sources say they were shipped out to Kris Thursday ... she put in her orders and requests at least 3 weeks ago.

Kris Jenner Drops Over $10k on Baby Gear ... For Kim & Kanye's New Girl

1/18/2018 9:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kris Jenner doesn't scrimp on her grandkids, especially not for the newest Kardashian girl -- for whom she just dropped over $10,000 ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us Kris hit up baby boutique Petit Tresor in WeHo late last month and spent at least $10k on some pricey baby merch for Kim and Kanye's latest bundle of joy.  

We're told Kris knew the baby would be due in January, so she wanted to get her order in early since a lot of this stuff is custom-made and would take a while to get delivered.

As for the order itself ... sources say Grandma Jenner bought a roughly $3,000 silver cross pram for kids -- which, we're told, was intended for North to push her new little sister around in. She also picked up a handcrafted Anaiza wooden crib for at least $6,000.

Last, but not least ... sources say Kris snapped up a bunch of custom baby outfits with rose applique for ALL of her grandkids at a couple hundred bucks each.

Like we said ... never scrimps.

LaVar Ball Files Trademark Docs ... 'Junior Basketball Association'

1/18/2018 9:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

LaVar Ball was dead serious about starting his own semi-pro basketball league -- and now he's got the ball rolling when it comes to locking down the trademarks. 

TMZ Sports has obtained documents showing LaVar (doing business as the Big Baller Brand) has filed applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to get the rights for the "JBA" aka the "Junior Basketball Association."

BBB is looking to use the league name and a logo (a silhouette of Lonzo Ball dunking) for athletic apparel, uniforms, hats, footwear, etc. 

LaVar has previously said he wants to create the league for high school basketball players who don't want to play for free in college ... but can't get to the NBA yet. 

He's stated he wants to pay players between $3,000 and $10,000 per month. He's looking to recruit 80 players to fill 10 teams. 

LaVar is gunning to launch the JBA in the Summer of 2018. 

FYI, Ball doesn't outright own the trademark ... yet. It could take months before the USPTO approves his application. 

Demetrious Johnson Thanks, Anderson ... But I'm NOT the G.O.A.T.

1/18/2018 5:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

UFC pound-for-pound king Demetrious Johnson says it's "an honor" Anderson Silva called him the greatest fighter of all time -- but tells TMZ Sports he does NOT think he's G.O.A.T. status.

That said, when the guys on "TMZ Sports" (airs weeknights on FS1) really pressed the flyweight champ for an answer -- he did admit he's getting close.

"I don't believe that," Demetrious told us ... before adding, "I do believe that I have, out of all the champions and all the opposition I've fought ... it's getting there."

FYI -- Mighty Mouse recently broke Anderson's UFC title defense record with his 11th straight ... but dude might be too humble to ever say he's the best.

His 4-year-old son will, though -- and it's cute as hell.

John Stamos ain't got daddy issues ... never mind he's gonna be a first-time papa.

We got the "Full House" star at LAX with his pregnant fiancée, Caitlin McHugh, in tow and wondered what it'll be like to a first-time father at 54. Our photog might've touched a nerve there, so he pivoted and then asked ... if his TV dad skills will translate in real life.

John cracked a joke, but the future DILF revealed he's actually really great around babies.

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.
