Justin Bieber Filled With Holy (Fighting) Spirit ... Shadow Boxing After Church

12/8/2017 8:53 AM PST

Here's the thing, Justin Bieber could probably kick your ass.

We know it's tough to come to terms with, but if you don't believe us just check out this video of the Biebs throwing punches after church.

You know he looks fast. Admit it.

Before you act too shocked, remember Justin used to train quite a bit with his (ex?) friend Floyd Mayweather, who once told TMZ Sports that if JB wanted to, he could seriously be a boxing star.

Bieber put on his little display earlier this week after a Hillsong Church service ... and his quick hands look up-to-date to us.

Watch how you talk to Selena.

Archdiocese of L.A. Holy Crap, Lil Pump Filmed 'Gucci Gang' At Our School?!?!

12/8/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump got a Catholic elementary school in serious trouble with the Archdiocese of L.A. because it wrongfully allowed the rapper to film himself smoke weed, drink lean and hold bags full of kush for his "Gucci Gang" music video.

Blessed Sacrament School is where the insanely popular video -- amassing 244 million views on YouTube -- was filmed, but there was a huge problem ... the school never told its bosses at the Archdiocese about the video or what would be in it.

A spokesperson for the Archdiocese of L.A. tells TMZ ... the school failed to follow filming policy and procedures, which are extremely strict at all of its schools and parishes.

The Archdiocese had zero clue Lil Pump would be rolling up to the school's parking lot in a Lamborghini with a blunt in one hand and double-cupping in the other.

It gets worse ... he slaps a teacher with a bag of pot in the school's hallway and he serves his video classmates sizzurp. The Archdiocese says it's looking into the matter. We reached out to the school for comment, but so far no word back.

We've seen this before -- Fetty Wap filmed similar scenes at a Paterson, NJ high school ... resulting in the principal getting suspended.  

Adult Swim's 'Black Jesus' Holy Tossed Lawsuits!!! No One Owns Black JC Idea

12/7/2017 4:51 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Adult Swim's prayers have been answered ... the "Black Jesus" lawsuit is no more. Amen. 

A judge dismissed the suit a writer named Saint Solomon filed against AS. He claimed their show ripped off his short story, "Thank You, Jesus" -- which also features an African-American Messiah.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the judge spells it out pretty clearly -- the tales of 2 Christs aren't similar at all ... other than the lead characters being black.

Yes, both works had the idea of making Jesus black, but as the judge said, "Ideas are not protected by copyright." 

As we reported ... Solomon wanted $75 million from Adult Swim. No dice.

Can the network get a hallelujah? 

Courtney Stodden Glad Jerusalem is Israel's Capital Ya Know, 'Cause of Christ

12/7/2017 7:22 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Courtney Stodden, of all people, has a hot take on President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and it's tied directly to her deep roots ... in Christianity.

We got Courtney leaving church Avalon in Hollywood Wednesday night, and she's down with Trump's historic decision in the Middle East. Her reasoning is a little vague, but it's definitely got something to do with Jesus.

Of course, the territorial beef is between Jews and Muslims, but dare we say it ... we think we understand Courtney's point: Jerusalem's a big deal for Christians too.

Either way, she's on board and offers the Prez a reluctant high-five.

Katy Perry, Archdiocese Win $15 mil Verdict Over L.A. Convent

12/4/2017 3:31 PM PST
Breaking News

Katy Perry and the Archdiocese of L.A. just won $15 million.

Katy had a deal to buy a convent from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. It's unclear, but it looks like Katy want to use the convent as a home. Thing is, a restaurant owner named Dana Hollister claimed she had already bought the convent from 2 nuns.

The Archdiocese went to the nuns and said they had no right to sell the property. That launched a 2-year battle over who had the right to sell the property.

The jury determined Katy and the Archdiocese had the valid deal and were damaged because it never went through. Katy got $5 million from Hollister and the Archdiocese got $10 million which represented the profit it would have made off Katy.

Bieber & Selena The Blonde Leading the Blonde

11/30/2017 7:35 AM PST

Justin Bieber and his newly blonde girlfriend, Selena Gomez, seemed to be sticking to their follicle roots by going on a quick date after church.

The Biebs and Selena hit up the Montage hotel in Bev Hills Wednesday after attending the Hillsong Church, where services are held inside the hotel.

Selena scurried inside when she saw photogs and Bieber followed shortly thereafter.

The pair have become the faces of Hillsong, although other celebs also attend, including Kourtney Kardashian, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Hailey Baldwin.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle It's Gonna Be a May Wedding

11/28/2017 7:54 AM PST

Meghan Markle's gonna be a May bride ... she and Prince Harry announced the month and location of their wedding -- and Harry's got history there. 

Kensington Palace says the royal couple will walk down the aisle in May 2018 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. They didn't say the date yet. 

Looks like they opted for May because April is Kate Middleton's due date for her and Prince William's third child. As for the Chapel ... that's where Harry was christened way back in 1984. 

Best part of the announcement ... "The Royal Family will pay for the wedding."

Big relief for the Markles.

Sergey Kovalev I'm a Changed Man ... 'God Saved My Life'

11/24/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sergey Kovalev says God saved him from a potentially deadly accident -- and now, he's vowing to show fans the "real Krusher" in his return fight this weekend.

"I said very big thanks to the God for save my life," Sergey told TMZ Sports. "I still healthy, and now he gave me opportunity again."

FYI, the boxing star recently revealed he got into a crazy car accident in Russia after his back-to-back losses to Andre Ward -- skidding into a dense forest off a 2-lane highway ... but miraculously avoiding direct impact with any trees. 

Kovalev told us that close call led him to a monastery in Greece -- where he got clean in the body and mind, and got over his gut-wrenching defeats at the hands of Ward.

So -- expect a new-and-improved Krusher when he faces Vyacheslav Shabranskyy on Saturday.

Donald Trump LaVar Tweets Prove He's Sick ... Says Deepak Chopra

11/20/2017 7:52 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump's Twitter hate against LaVar Ball and others is proof that he's sick and unfit to be president -- so says alternative medicine guru Deepak Chopra.

"I feel he’s in a lot of pain and suffering. He probably never got validation from his parents ... so he needs to be validated every day, every hour, every minute," Deepak told TMZ Sports.

With that said, Chopra says there's only 1 logical thing for Trump to do.

"Relinquish the presidency ... for his health, and the health of his family, and health of the country, and the health of the world."

Deepak added that he feels sorry for POTUS -- and is willing to help him with a week of private meditation on the house!!

Sounds better than fighting Big Ballers on social media ...

Justin Bieber God's Rules of the Road Count to 18 and Then Flip a B****

11/16/2017 6:48 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber must've felt holier than thou hugging it out with his pastor for 18 seconds ... but it didn't last, 'cause he became a sinful L.A. driver soon after.

We got Bieber leaving a church service at the Saban Theatre in Bev Hills Wednesday, where he gave one of his pastors, Judah Smith, a big bro hug on the way out. And by big, we actually mean long as hell ... like 18 seconds long ... ALLIGATOR seconds at that.

Seems like Justin got a lot out of the embrace, but whatever Godliness he felt quickly faded as he drove off ... 'cause the Biebs did a super illegal U-turn getting outta there.

Remember, Justin: WWJD? Walk ... probably.

Pope Francis This Lambo Is Blessed to Move!!!

11/15/2017 7:46 AM PST


Pope Francis is officially the most overqualified used car salesman -- but God, does he have a sweetheart of a deal for you on a Lamborghini!!

The Pope was gifted a special edition Lambo Huracan, which he's putting up for auction through Sotheby's -- but not before bestowing a papal blessing on the exotic whip.

The $200k ride seems fairly blessed already -- zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds on 600 horses -- but the Pope's word has to get ya out of a few tickets, no? Plus, auction proceeds go to charity.

So, what's a Pontiff gotta do to get you in this thing today???

William H. Macy Wahlberg Should be Proud of Porn Role ... In 'Boogie Nights'

11/3/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Wahlberg doesn't need God's forgiveness for playing a porn star in "Boogie Nights" because there's nothing wrong with porn ... so says William H. Macy.

Wahlberg, a devout Catholic, said in a Chicago Tribune interview this week that his Dirk Diggler role was up there on his list of poor career choices. It's a pretty far out statement considering the role turned Wahlberg from rapper to Hollywood A-lister.

Macy played Wahlberg's co-star Little Bill in the '97 film and when we got him at LAX Thursday he praised Wahlberg's work in the film ... as did a random dude in the airport security line.

Macy stopped short of calling "Boogie Nights" his favorite flick, but sounds like he thinks Walhberg nailed the role.
