Rosie O'Donnell Reunites with Daughter

6/21/2016 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0621_rosie_odonnell_daughter_chelsea_launch_arrow_3Rosie O'Donnell and daughter Chelsea have buried the hatchet ... or so it seems after they were pictured together smiling -- for the first time in over a year.

Rosie and her daughters, Chelsea and Vivienne, were spotted Monday aboard the SS Hornblower cruise ship for a cancer benefit in NYC ... and as you can see, Rosie and Chelsea appear in MUCH better spirits after spending much of last year on the outs.

As TMZ reported ... Rosie called the cops claiming Chelsea was off her meds and had run away with a dude who'd been convicted on drug charges -- before taking off again to be with her birth mother. Shortly after that, Chelsea went to the media, saying she "did not love Rosie." 

Time heals?

1:45 PM PT -- A rep for Gladys tells TMZ the singer "lent her name to her son's restaurants in the Atlanta area, similar to a celebrity endorsement. Ms. Knight was not involved in any way with the operation of the restaurants and she is sure that her son and his business partners will rectify the situation."

Gladys Knight's Chicken and Waffle restaurants just got shut down by Georgia authorities.

We're told agents with the Georgia Dept of Revenue raided all 3 of Knight's chicken joints Tuesday morning ... clearing out customers and ordering employees to leave.

Agents removed computers, files, and the contents from safes.

Gladys' son -- who runs the business -- is reportedly at the center of the investigation. It appears authorities believe $1 million may have been inappropriately diverted.

We reached out to Gladys ... so far no word back.

Story developing ...

Selma Blair The Calm Before the Flight

6/21/2016 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0621_selma_blair_beach_before_the_flight_launch_3Selma Blair was the picture of serenity over the weekend ... just a day or so before she ended up being carried off a jet on a stretcher.

TMZ broke the story ... Selma went off the rails on a Delta flight from Cancun to L.A. Monday, screaming incoherently. The pilot radioed ahead that she had mixed alcohol and meds. When the plane landed she was taken to a nearby hospital.

There was no hint of trouble in Mexico where she stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera ... at least judging from the pics. Selma, ex-BF and baby daddy Jason Bleick and 4-year-old Arthur were all smiles.

Mariah Carey Baffled By Cannon Beef He's Always Had Access to the Twins

EXCLUSIVE

0617_Nick-and-Mariah_DECEMBER_MAIN_instagramMariah Carey doesn't know what the hell Nick Cannon is ranting about in his angry rap about child custody and divorce ... sources connected to the singer tell TMZ.

Nick released the song Thursday, in which he says, "And now I can't see my kids 'cause the government sucks," and "It's f***** up that the time you spend with your own kids is called visitation."

Our sources insist Mariah and Nick have gotten along extremely well, especially in the child custody department. They say Mariah has never denied Nick access to the twins and Nick has always been able to see them when he wanted.

0617_Nick-and-Mariah_nov-feb_SUB_instagramAs for why Nick has not signed the divorce papers for nearly 2 years, our Mariah sources believe that Nick is being manipulated by his lawyers, because the sources say there's no beef between Mimi and Nick.

Nick raps, "It's been 2 years and I'm the one that's been waiting." It appears he's talking about getting divorced, but we're told Mariah and her lawyer have been pressing Nick to sign the docs for months and months, but he's been stalling.

At the end of his rap, Nick says, "Man, f*** it. Let's sign the papers."

Breaking News

0617_Zonnique-Pullins_mug_clayton_countyT.I.'s stepdaughter was busted for trying to get a gun through TSA at Hartfields-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.

Zonnique Pullins was arrested early Thursday morning after a TSA agent spotted the semiautomatic pistol in her purse ... with the help of an X-ray machine.

We're told Pullins stated she had a weapons permit but didn't have the paperwork to prove it. It didn't really matter ... you can't carry a gun onto a plane. 

Cops cuffed Zonnique and booked her for carrying a concealed weapon in an unauthorized area.

She got out Friday AM.

Pullins is the daughter of T.I.'s wife, Tiny, and member of the girl group O.M.G. 

Disney Attack Look ... Could've Been Any of Our Children

6/17/2016 11:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0617-janice-croze-grand-floridian-lagoon-02Disney has more problems over the alligator attack. It's no longer a case of one child stepping into dangerous territory ... several Disney lagoons have been populated with kids for years.

Janice Croze posted a 2012 photo of her little girl, Olivia, in ankle-deep water in the lagoon at Disney's Beach Club Resort, a short drive from where Lane Graves was attacked by an alligator earlier this week. Check out all the kids in the background.

It's highly improbable Disney didn't know kids would stand in the water -- they're not violating the "no swimming" sign ... they're just wading.

To be clear ... Janice isn't blaming Disney, but thinks it should update its signs and aggressively monitor and remove dangerous wildlife that wanders into the lagoon.

On top of that ... the resort's own advertisement shows models doing the same thing.

Future I Got My Kid ... I Don't Need to Sue Ciara Anymore

6/17/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0616-future-ciara-TMZ_02Future just dropped his lawsuit against baby mama Ciara ... because he's getting more time with his son.

As TMZ reported -- Ciara sued Future for $15 million back in February for calling her a bad mom. Future countersued but he's just had a change of heart, asking the judge to dismiss his case against her.

Sources close to the rapper tell us he wants to calm the waters after scoring joint custody of baby Future. We're told Future is worried if he goes after Ciara in court she'll continue her efforts to restrict his custodial rights, and his son is more important than a court judgment.

Ciara is not like-minded.  Her lawsuit is still full steam ahead.

Disney We Might Need Alligator Signs

6/16/2016 12:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0616-orlando-resort-lagoon-disney-alligators-GETTY-01Disney is acknowledging it may need signs around its properties warning of a hidden danger ... alligators.

A VP for the mouse says, while the beaches remain closed, Disney is reviewing its protocols, including "the number, placement and wording of our signage and warnings."

As we previously reported, Disney resorts in the area have "no swimming" signs posted, but no warnings of alligators ... despite the fact that numerous alligators have populated its lagoons.

It's almost certain the family of the boy who died will sue Disney, but a change in signage would not be admissible to show negligence on the part of the Resort. Courts don't want to discourage companies from improving safety.

The Kardashians We're a Main Attraction at Disneyland

6/16/2016 7:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0616_kardashians_kanye_west_noth_birsthday_disney_launch_2Kim and Kanye gave Mickey and Minnie Mouse a break when they rolled through Disneyland Wednesday ... because all cameras were trained on them.

It was North's 3rd birthday and going to Disneyland to celebrate is kinda a thing

Scott and Kourtney were there too with Penelope and Mason, so it was quite the attraction for everyone who thought they'd be bored waiting an hour to get on Space Mountain.

We doubt Kim and co. had to wait for any rides.

Alligator Attack But for the Grace of God ... Another Child at Risk

6/16/2016 6:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0616-boy-lagoon-alligator-florida-disney-FACEBOOK-01A little boy was wading in the lagoon at the Disney's Grand Floridian Resort -- in the exact place where an alligator put a 2-year-old in a death grip -- just 30 minutes before the attack.

Jennifer Vendetti and her son, Channing, went to the lagoon around the same time Lane Graves arrived. It appears Jennifer was okay with her son wading in the lagoon, despite the sign that warned people not to swim. Fact is ... he wasn't swimming -- he was wading.

As TMZ first reported, there were no signs warning of alligators, despite the fact that alligators populated the lagoon, and other resorts specifically warned guests of the reptiles.

Other former guests are now posting pics on social media ... showing their unsuspecting children wading in the Disney lagoon.

Oprah almost got tongue-tied when our photog asked her who runs the White House ... not as in the government, but the house in which the First Family lives.

Oprah's dramatic pause -- and answer -- are epic.

Disney Attack Child Presumed Dead ... Alligators Persistent Problem in Lagoon

6/15/2016 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cops have laid to rest any hope of rescuing the 2-year-old boy dragged into a Disney lagoon by an alligator, and they just revealed gators in the area have been a big problem for a long time.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings just said the boy is presumed dead. But a Fish and Wildlife official raised troubling questions about a hidden danger at Disney resorts ... gators populating its lagoons.

As we reported, the resort in question did not warn guests about alligators, but now officials say they routinely kill the gators they find in the waters, and that it's hard keeping them away.

Divers are now using sonar to find the child's body.

Disney has closed all beaches around the resort out of precaution.
