Khloe Kardashian Huge Rock on My Hand is Bright Spot Of Boring Date with Tristan

6/25/2018 9:45 AM PDT

Khloe Kardashian's flashing a massive rock on her left ring finger which might have ya thinking she's engaged to Tristan Thompson ... but don't go buying a gift yet.

Khloe and Tristan had dinner Sunday night at BOA Steakhouse on the Sunset Strip ... and from the look of things, it wasn't the most exciting date night. Khloe seemed to be giving Tristan serious side-eye while he looks at something other than her -- maybe his phone or the menu.

But the bling on her hand was a definite bright spot. Khloe's dressed up that finger before, so we're not jumping the gun on engagement news.

Yes, their relationship's been a roller coaster since the whole cheating and embarrassing her thing -- and yes ... they've put it behind them. Still, a marriage proposal right now would be pretty shocking.

9:09 AM PT -- Sources close to Harrison tell us he passed after losing his battle with Parkinson's Disease.

Richard Harrison -- famously known as "Old Man" on "Pawn Stars" -- has died, according to his son, Rick Harrison

''The Old Man' Harrison passed away this morning surrounded by those he loved," Rick said Monday morning ... "He will be tremendously missed by our family, the team at Gold & Silver Pawn and his many fans the world over." 

"He was my hero and I was fortunate to get a very cool ‘Old Man’ as my dad."

The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear. However, Harrison's appearances on the show over the last couple years were slim to none.

'Old Man' moved to Vegas back in the early '80s and opened the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop with his son, Rick. 

When the producers found the family and turned their daily lives into a show, it became an instant success. It's been on the air since July 2009 with 'Old Man' as one of the fan favorites. 

A rep for History Channel tells TMZ, "We are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend Richard ‘The Old Man’ Harrison, a beloved member of the HISTORY and ‘Pawn Stars’ family.  He will be greatly missed for his wisdom and candor."  

Harrison is a Navy veteran and often talked about his military career on the show.

The buff hottie Kendall Jenner encountered at the grocery store -- wearing a shirt suggesting her family should be killed -- has been ID'd ... and his contempt for the Kardashians is real.

TMZ has learned the guy with the jacked arms is Jason Christopher, and he tells us he had the shirt custom made a few years ago ... because he's not down with the Kardashian crew's affinity for wearing fur.

As we reported ... Kendall was out to grab some milk at the market Wednesday when she saw Jason and his "Kill the Kardashians" shirt and shared a video of him on her IG, which quickly went viral.

Interesting note -- this isn't the first time he's made headlines. In January 2016, he was reunited with his stolen dog, Bronson, a Chihuahua who was famous for appearing in a 2014 Scrubbing Bubbles commercial.

According to the police report, when the officer pulled over Paul, he smelled weed and Paul confessed to having a couple bags on him. The weed weighed in at 27.6 grams, but in Florida anything over 20 grams is considered a felony. 

Paul also had a suspended licence and expired vehicle tags.

Farrah's been a major supporter of the Jessica Rich Collection of women's wear. The company's namesake owner tells TMZ ... the brand will continue to back Abraham despite her barking "Go f*** yourself" to police officers during the arrest early Wednesday morning.

Still, it sounds like Jessica -- who's also worked with Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian -- is putting Farrah on a short leash. She told us, "moving forward I highly suggest any celebrity in any light regardless of any situation should always try to conduct themselves in the best possible light."

TMZ broke the story ... Farrah was arrested early Wednesday morning for allegedly striking a hotel security guard after she was asked to leave The Beverly Hills Hotel. 

The ex-"Teen Mom" and porn star repeatedly laid into cops before she was hauled away.

Although Jessica's giving her a pass this time around -- Farrah might wanna consider walking the straight and narrow ... or risk losing some cash.

Kim Kardashian and the rest of the fam might have added a few million bucks to Spanx's revenue, and its billionaire founder, Sara Blakely, couldn't be more grateful.

We got Sara at LAX and our guy wanted to know just how much value the Kardashians have pumped into the brand. The sisters are NOT shy about letting it be known they rock Spanx every chance they get. Kim even blogged about doubling up on the footless tights.

Sara's totally aware of the Kardashians' shout-outs, and we ask her if the "all publicity is good publicity" theory applies ... even when haters shame celebs for wearing Spanx. You might be surprised with her answer.

Also ... Sara puts to rest the debate about whether it's kosher for men to ask if women are wearing Spanx.
