Jaden Smith Sending More Clean Water to Flint

5/23/2018 5:12 PM PDT
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.

Jada Pinkett Smith I'm Losing My Hair ... And I'm Okay With It

5/21/2018 3:55 PM PDT

Jada Pinkett Smith is coming to terms with a big part of her identity that's fading away -- her hair.

Jada made the revelation Monday, saying alopecia was causing significant hair loss. She says her balding is the reason she's been wearing so many turbans in public lately.

The moment she realized her hair was going sounds pretty frightening. On her Facebook show, "Red Table Talk" ... Jada said she was in the shower one day, and noticed handfuls of hair coming out. She said she was "literally shaking with fear." Now, she says she keeps her hair short, and plans to keep it that way. 

Jada says doctors and specialists have not been able to diagnose what's causing the hair loss, but she adds ... her friends think it's stress.

On a positive note, she explains that out of all the things that "higher power" takes away from people in life, she's happy to offer up her hair.

Well said, Jada. Perspective is everything.

Breaking News

President Barack and Michelle Obama could be walking the red carpet at the next Oscars and Golden Globes ... and not as guests, but nominees.

Netflix confirmed Monday in a tweet they're partnering up with the Obamas on a multi-year agreement where Barack and Michelle will produce films and series for the company. The announcement says the deal could potentially also include "scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features." Basically, anything is game.

Rumors began to swirl in March that 44 and the former First Lady were in talks with Netflix, but the terms of the deal were still unclear.

The Obamas have always been champions of the film industry and at once had close ties with Harvey Weinstein before all his sexual assault allegations surfaced. Their daughter, Malia, even had an internship at the Weinstein Company.

Jet Li Looks Shockingly Frail at 55 ... Battling Thyroid Disorder

5/21/2018 10:03 AM PDT

This is what Jet Li looked like just 12 years ago, at the peak of his action movie career ... but now he looks much older than his 55 years ... as he deals with medical issues.

The pic was posted by a fan who posed with the action star during a recent visit to Tibet. It shows Jet looking frail and nearly bald. He revealed back in 2013 he suffers from hyperthyroidism and a heart condition.

At the time, he said he could continue making action films or spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair. But, more to the point ... Jet has also suffered serious leg and spine injuries over the course of his career, admitting he can't stand for a long period of time without hunching.

Just 4 years ago Li was starring alongside some of the biggest action stars in the world in "The Expendables 3" ... looking nowhere near what he looks like now.

Get well, Jet.

EXCLUSIVE

Sylvester Stallone's wife is weighing in on the whole Sly vs. Hulk Hogan debate -- saying she's confident if the two ever fought, it would be "Rocky III" all over again! 

Remember, Hulk recently told us he's picking HIMSELF if the two men ever locked horns -- despite the fact Stallone's still a physical freak at 71 years old. 

So, when we saw Jennifer Flavin at LAX ... we had to get her take -- and shocker, she's picking Sly. 

"Sly's got heart," Flavin told us ... "I'm always gonna be on Team Sly."

For the record, Hulk's got the size advantage ... 6'7" and 300 lbs. 

Stallone's only reportedly 5'10" and 195-ish pounds. 

Didn't matter in "Rocky III" though ... when Balboa choked out a raging Thunderlips like a little bitch. 

Good times ...
