9/24/2017 1:00 PM PDT

Jennifer Lopez is opening her wallet A LOT wider than she did for Houston to help out her parents' homeland of Puerto Rico ... with a $1 million donation.

EXCLUSIVE

Mel B will not be prosecuted for intimidating a witness in her domestic violence case against Stephen Belaftone ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. County D.A. says it will not move forward because the text messages Mel sent to rapper Siya were "too vague" to be clearly interpreted as threats. The messages also don't show that Mel was even aware Siya was going to testify against her.

TMZ broke the story ... Siya had filed a police report, claiming Mel sent threatening texts warning her not to take the stand in Mel B's divorce and domestic violence case.

Siya was on Belafonte's witness list, and we're told she will testify Belafonte never abused his wife and that Mel B was calling the shots when they had 3-ways during their marriage.

Mark Wahlberg's gone into the abyss ... of landlocked Missouri, and he's loving it.

Marky Mark hit up the grand opening of the Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium in Springfield, MO ... the handiwork of Bass Pro Shops CEO Johnny Morris.

The museum features 35,000 live fish and mammals. That does not include Mark.

Porsche's 1st Superyacht Slick and Sick!!! High Performance Hits the High Seas

9/21/2017 7:22 AM PDT

Ever wonder what would happen if a Porsche 911 Turbo banged a yacht and made a baby? Well, here ya go ... the first Porsche superyacht!!!

It's called the Dynamiq GTT 115 and it's incredible inside and out. It's fast too ... sailing at over 21 knots. We got pics of the first one being dropped into the water in Viareggio, Italy, not too far from where it's making its international debut next week at the Monaco Yacht Show. 

Wondering the price? Then you probably can't afford it ... but anyway it's $16 million. Not cheap, but a lot less than Steve Jobs' dingy.

Only 7 of the 114-foot vessels have been made so we imagine the race is already on to get one.

Any takers ... Jay-Z & Beyonce? Neymar? Oprah?

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell Stop the Hammering Or I'll Do It For You ... Total Meltdown!!!

9/20/2017 2:47 PM PDT

Keep your damn hammers quiet when MSNBC anchor Lawrence O'Donnell is working or he'll have to ... go down to the "goddamned floor" himself and stop it!

O'Donnell hammered that point home when he absolutely melted down while shooting an MSNBC broadcast, reportedly on Aug. 29. The veteran reporter lost it on the floor crew, the control room ... and whoever had the audacity to hammer during his show. He said he was also getting extraneous noise in his earpiece. 

In his defense, the construction noise was blatant, and would reasonably be distracting O'Donnell as he tried to do his job. He added the whole situation was "f**king out of control."

Lawrence apologized about the incident Wednesday evening, tweeting ... "A better anchorman and a better person would've had a better reaction to technical difficulties. I'm sorry."

LO's flip out is good, but for our money -- Bill O'Reilly's still got the crown. 'Cause he did it LIVE!

Breaking News

Central Mexico is trembling after a devastating 7.1 earthquake that's leveled dozens of buildings to nothing but rubble.

The powerful quake struck Tuesday afternoon in the central Mexican state of Puebla, but it was felt nearly 100 miles away in Mexico City. There are reports of at least 104 deaths, and there's also extensive property damage -- some buildings exploded and others totally collapsed moments after the shaking. 

The quake comes on the anniversary of the tragic 8.0 earthquake that killed nearly 10,000 people in 1985. The country was still reeling from an 8.1 earlier this month that killed 61 people.

'The Mad Pooper' On the Run in Colorado ... Leaves Gross Trail

9/19/2017 10:54 AM PDT

Holy crap this is disgusting -- a jogger is defecating all over a Colorado neighborhood, and yeah ... residents have had it up to here with her s**t.

The prime suspect, we'll call her suspect #2, has allegedly been pooping all over Colorado Springs, but has taken a liking to one Cathy Budde's yard in particular. She says her kids caught the runner mid-squat and yelled ... "There's a lady taking a poop!"

Cathy says she confronted the woman, who said sorry before running away. But she tells KKTV, the runner with the runs came back several more times.  

Cathy spotted her each time, and thinks she's doing it on purpose -- she comes equipped with napkins. She snapped a shot of suspect #2 ... and now police are on the lookout.

Watch your step, Colorado Springs!

Hollywood was rocked by a relatively minor earthquake Monday night -- but it was still enough to get several celebs shaking in their boots ... hysterically.

Chrissy had a bladder emergency ... then hysterically reached out to hubby, John Legend. 

And Dad of the Year, Josh Gad, had his children's safety in mind ... for a while, anyway. 

Mother Nature ... bringing out the humanity in all of us. 

Ed Sheeran Yeah, I'm Not Playing St. Louis Either ... Cancels Show Amid Protests

9/16/2017 3:27 PM PDT
Breaking News

Ed Sheeran is following suit with U2 ... he just cancelled his show this weekend in St. Louis amid rising protests throughout the city.

The promotion company for Ed's tour put out a statement, saying his Sunday night concert at the Scottrade Center was nixed. They cited the same reason that U2 gave ... local law enforcement couldn't fully commit to providing a sufficient amount of police and other city services to protect concert goers. 

The company went on to say they plan on having Ed return to St. Louis at a later date in 2018, as his schedule allows. 

Ed's the 2nd major music act to cancel a show in St. Louis after violence has erupted from protests. The protests stem from the acquittal of a former police officer who was charged with first degree murder of a black motorist following a high speed chase in 2011. Cops and protesters have flooded the streets as a result. 

As with U2 ... Ed's fans will receive a refund for their tickets. 

Nick Cannon Joins St. Louis Protesters ... Wearing Kaepernick Jersey

9/16/2017 6:15 PM PDT

Nick Cannon is on the front lines of protests in St. Louis ... and he's doing it in a Colin Kaepernick jersey.

Nick was spotted taking to the streets Saturday with hundreds of others to protest the acquittal a white police officer who was charged with first degree murder of a black motorist, Anthony Lamar Smith, following a high speed chase in 2011. He was rockin' his usual headgear ... and a black Kaep jersey.

The comedian isn't one to shy away from these sorts of demonstrations ... he's been seen at many BLM events, and was even hittin' the streets last year in Cleveland. It's also no surprise he's sporting Kaep here ... the QB has become the poster child of social justice as of late.

As we reported ... Ed Sheeran and U2 had to cancel their weekend concerts in St. Louis due to safety concerns stemming from the protests. 

Clearly, those safety concerns don't concern Nick. 

Cincinnati Zoo Welcomes First Gorilla Since Harambe

9/15/2017 7:36 AM PDT

The Cincinnati Zoo opened its doors to another gorilla for the first time since Harambe was tragically killed.

The zoo welcomed Mshindi ... a 29-year-old silverback that previously called the Louisville Zoo its home. It's the first time Cincinnati's Gorilla World habitat welcomed a gorilla since Harambe was shot and killed in May 2016 after a 4-year-old boy fell into the gorilla's enclosure.

Zoo officials said they had no regrets taking down the gorilla that sparked a firestorm of controversy.

Mshindi will reportedly join two female gorillas -- 21-year-old Chewie and 22-year-old Mara. 

Donald Trump I Was Right About Charlottesville!!! 'Bad Dudes' On Both Sides

9/14/2017 3:12 PM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump is back to blaming "both sides" for the violence in Charlottesville ... and gloating that he was right to say it in the first place.

Trump was on Air Force One Thursday when he said he'd told South Carolina's Republican Senator Tim Scott -- the day before -- that there were "bad dudes" on the other side of white supremacist protests. 

The Prez doubled down, saying Antifa's actions since then prove he was right all along -- "I said you got some really bad people on the other side also, which is true."

Why he decided to bring up the subject again -- after backpedaling from the divisive remarks -- is anyone's guess.
