Tiffany Haddish I'm Down with a 'Blues Bros' Reboot ... If the Money's Right!!!

5/26/2018 7:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tiffany Haddish is down with doing a 'Blue Brothers' reboot with Cardi B ... if the money is right.

We got Tiff Friday at LAX and followed up on our convo last month with Dan Aykroyd, who told us about a script -- "Soul Sisters" -- that is sitting on numerous desks in Hollywood, just waiting for a studio to bite.

So now we followed up with Tiffany, who says she knows 'The Blues Bros' line and verse, and would sign a deal but she wants some serious $$$.   

As for Cardi B as her co-star, Tiffany wisely concluded the time isn't exactly right for that, but when Cardi delivers her baby it's game on.

Dan should make our photog Dante an EP.  

Harvey Weinstein Prosecutors Eyeing Obscure Law in Investigation

5/25/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein is now in the crosshairs of federal prosecutors who are looking to possibly prosecute him under a law that some legal experts say is a giant stretch.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York is looking to see if Weinstein violated the Mann Act. It now prohibits people from taking others across state lines with the intent of engaging in illegal sexual acts. The law was initially designed to prevent adults from transporting minors across state lines for sex.

The law requires the suspect to have formed the intent to commit the act before taking the victim across state lines.

Our sources say prosecutors are looking at at least one actress whom Weinstein flew from one state to another. The stretch is that they will have to prove he asked the actress to travel, knowing that he was going to rape her when she arrived at the destination.

The difficulty in such a case ... Weinstein may have wanted to have sex, but didn't assume from the get-go he would have to rape the woman.

As we reported, Weinstein will turn himself in today on state sexual assault charges.

Weinstein has maintained the sexual encounters he has had were all consensual. 

Donald Glover This is Lando's America

5/24/2018 6:11 PM PDT

Donald Glover's keeping it Gucci leading up to the release of "Solo: A Star Wars Story" ... perfectly in tune with his character in the movie.

The new Lando Calrissian was spotted looking cool on a hot NYC day while walking with his girlfriend/baby mama, Michelle, back to their hotel Thursday ... all he's missing is a stylish cape.

The highly anticipated 'Solo' film features Glover as young Lando and Alden Ehrenreich as young Han ... and opens tonight worldwide.

Donald doesn't seem like he's sweating it.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Let's Go Ride a Bike ... My Heart's Fine!!!

5/24/2018 4:36 PM PDT

Arnold Schwarzenegger's back, as promised, and looking happy and heart-healthy enough to go for a bike ride.

The 70-year-old actor hit a Santa Monica bike path Thursday and was seen pedaling around with a friend ... less than 2 months after having emergency open-heart surgery.

We broke the story ... Arnold had to have the emergency operation after a scheduled valve replacement repair went awry.

Fortunately, his medical team was prepared and everything turned out fine ... and he looks perfectly stable on a bicycle. 

Ben Affleck & Lindsay Shookus Love-In at His New $19 Mil Crib!!!

5/24/2018 2:43 PM PDT

Ben Affleck is finally moving into his new mansion, and it looks like his girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus, will be spending a lot of time there, too.

Ben was spotted rolling up to his $19.25 million Pacific Palisades home Thursday with a moving truck following close behind. Lindsay and Ben took some time to admire the real estate he scooped up last month ... before starting the unpacking nightmare.

Ha! Kidding. They've got people for that.

As we've reported, Ben started house hunting last year, usually with Lindsay tagging along.

We hear she won't be moving in with him just yet, but she is on summer hiatus from her 'SNL' producing gig -- so, it's a safe bet she'll be very familiar with this new home.

This will be Ben's first time as a solo homeowner since the divorce from Jennifer Garner -- and it's a BIG step up from the ole guest house.

Be it ever so humble, there's no place like a bitchin' $19 million home!

We're told arrangements are being made for the surrender, which is expected Friday.

Morgan Freeman SAG Considering Yanking Life Achievement Award

5/24/2018 12:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

5:00 PM PT -- The corporate fallout for Freeman has begun ... Visa announced it's suspending its marketing in which the actor is featured. TransLink -- a Vancouver-based transit system that features a Freeman voiceover in an ad -- made a similar announcement, as well.

Morgan Freeman's huge honor from his peers from the Screen Actors Guild is now on the line ... in the wake of sexual harassment allegations ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for SAG tells us, "These are compelling and devastating allegations which are absolutely contrary to all the steps that we are taking to ensure a safe work environment for the professionals in this industry."

Freeman was awarded SAG's Life Achievement Award back in January but now says it's reviewing what "corrective actions" might be appropriate.

SAG acknowledges Freeman has the right to due process, but says it's "our starting point to believe the courageous voices who come forward to report incidents of harassment."

As we reported ... 8 women told CNN they were the victims of harassment or sexual misconduct by Freeman on several movie sets, and at media events connected to his movies.

Freeman has denied "intentionally" offending or making anyone feel uncomfortable.

Morgan Freeman Accused of Sexual Harassment ... Denies 'Intentionally' Offending

5/24/2018 8:36 AM PDT
Breaking News

9:45 AM PT -- Freeman tells TMZ ... “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy. I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent.”Morgan Freeman is being accused of sexual harassment or misconduct by 8 women over several years on the sets of his movies ... or during media events related to his projects.

One of the allegations comes from a production assistant who worked on Freeman's movie in 2015, "Going In Style." She told CNN Morgan repeatedly tried to lift up her skirt to see if she was wearing underwear, and commented on her figure. She says costar Alan Arkin saw it happening and told Freeman to stop.

Another woman who worked on "Now You See Me" claims Freeman also made comments about her body as well as another female staffer's. She says women on set knew to cover up whenever he was around.

CNN reporter Chloe Melas said she too was subject to Freeman's misconduct ... when she was 6 months pregnant and interviewing him during a media junket. Melas claims Freeman told her she looked ripe, and repeatedly insinuated he wished he'd been there when she got pregnant.

In all, CNN says it spoke to 16 people -- 8 who claim they were victims, and 8 who witnessed Freeman's misconduct.

EXCLUSIVE

Jaden Smith's mission to send clean water to Flint, Michigan schools is still full steam ahead.

We got Jaden in Calabasas on Wednesday, and got an update on the Flint water crisis. ICYMI ... Jaden and his famous dad's eco-friendly water company, JUST, announced back in March it would donate clean H2O until the lead levels are safe.

JUST has already donated well over 9,000 bottles so far, but Jaden told us they're work is far from done.

On a totally different, but pretty awesome note -- shortly after we ran into Jaden, Will Smith dropped a little preview of new music he's recording. He says he's "just warmin up." Welcome back, Big Willie! 

Michael Jackson Estate Disney has Unmitigated Gall Airing 'Last Days' TV Special

5/23/2018 2:35 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

The folks managing Michael Jackson's estate are outraged that ABC would dare do a documentary called "The Last Days of Michael Jackson" and trash the singer and exploit his legacy.

A rep for the estate tells TMZ ... it's especially galling that Disney -- which owns ABC, and sometimes viciously protects its image -- would sully the image of Michael. The rep called Disney's conduct "disgraceful."

The rep went on to say this -- "What if we did a documentary on the relationship between Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck and some of the rumors they were drug abusers? How would Disney like that?"

We're told Disney has not paid a cent for photos or music for the upcoming TV special, and the MJ estate will be watching like a hawk to see if any of those assets appear in the show.  But, our sources say, the Estate's issue is not money ... it's that they think the show is irresponsible and dishonors Michael. 

Bella Thorne Leather Does Her Body Good

5/23/2018 3:21 PM PDT

Keep ya pants on ... not that Bella Thorne's following those orders, but we doubt anyone's complaining about her fashion choices.

Bella was out in NYC on Wednesday draped in a super tight black leather outfit. BTW, it's a relatively sweltering 80 degrees in the Big Apple ... which might explain why her pants are undone. The only thing missing to complete this outfit? Ehh ... nothing, really.

The sexy biker babe look has us wondering -- who wore it better? Hailey Baldwin in Bev Hills or Brooke Burke at Coachella?

TBH, we're they're all winners here.

Lil Rel Howery Kyrie's My Dude ... So I'm Happy Celtics Lost

5/23/2018 8:07 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Get Out" star Lil Rel Howery is a Boston Celtics fan ... but he says there's a silver lining to the team losing a couple games, and he's telling TMZ Sports his glass-half-empty theory.

If you're asking why Lil Rel is a Celtics fan in the first place, he says it's because he developed a kinship with Kyrie Irving while the two men were shooting Irving's upcoming "Uncle Drew" movie.

Rel says it's that friendship that makes it kinda okay ... hell, he almost even likes it ... that the C's seem to be struggling to beat LeBron with no go-to NBA superstar.

"I've been watching all these stories about how the team is better without Kyrie and all this dumb sh*t and I was like, ah, no, this is superstar time."

"So, I'm just saying like, Kyrie, that's his team, man. So, don't ever question that sh*t again. It's his f*cking team. He's a superstar. They need to win with him."

Translation -- Boston's struggles reinforce just how important Kyrie is to that team ... which, in a weird way, makes Rel happy. 

Ex-Prez Vicente Fox Forget Netflix Money Grab, Obama ... The World Needs You!!!

5/23/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Barack and Michelle Obama are making a huge mistake with their Netflix deal ... according to Vicente Fox, who says they should focus on helping people, instead of making money.

We got the ex-Mexican Prez Tuesday in D.C. and asked him about the Obamas locking up a production deal to make films, series and documentaries for Netflix. He's not on board.

In fact, he fully challenged the former first couple.

Fox says their jump into entertainment comes at the worst time, because their leadership's desperately needed in other arenas.

Vicente's no fan of President Trump, and doesn't call him by name, but watch -- he urges Obama to help the Democrats win in November.

Translation: take down Trump's Republicans now ... make your showbiz bucks later.
