Turbo from 'Breakin' Hey, Jimmy Kimmel ... My Pop & Lock STILL Cleans Up

11/25/2016 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jimmy Kimmel called out the  guy who played Turbo in the 'Breakin'' '80s flicks ... and now he's responding to prove he still has the break dance moves that made him famous.

Michael "Boogaloo Shrimp" Chambers saw the skit Kimmel did with Garth Brooks this week ... joking he'd paid Boogaloo $1,000 to teach a white friend how to pop and lock. We got Boogaloo out in L.A. and he was totally game to play along with the storyline.

Now, of course, Kimmel never really forked over that dough -- but he might want to reconsider once he sees this Turbo homage ... complete with the broom, baby!

It's about to get all 1984 up in here.

Laurie Hernandez CHA CHA CHING! I Made a Fortune On 'Dancing!'

11/25/2016 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1118-laurie-hernandez-tmz-gettyIt really pays to go the distance on "Dancing with the Stars" -- just ask U.S. Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez ... who just made a TON OF CASH on her way to winning the Mirrorball Trophy.

Since Laurie is only 16 ... producers had to get a judge to sign off on the terms of her contract in order for it to be enforceable. And those documents included the entire 'Dancing' pay structure.

Laurie got a cool $125k just for being on the show -- but she got more cash the further she made it.

Surviving to Week 3 and 4 got her $10k per week.

Week 5 paid $15k.

Weeks 6 and 7 paid $20k per week.

Weeks 8 and 9 ... $30k per week.

Weeks 10 and 11 ... $50k per week.

Grand total ... $360,000!!!

Not bad for 3 months of work!

11/23/2016 9:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123_leslie-jones_sterling-shepherd_getty_instagramLeslie Jones made a fashion statement at the Knicks game Tuesday night -- wearing a shirt with the word "A-hole" written across the front ... while sitting courtside for all of the TV cameras to see! 

As far as we know, there were no issues -- no one seemed to be bothered by the shirt ... including the TV crews who ran the risk of airing the uncensored word during the live broadcast. 

The 'SNL' star had a great time -- she kicked it with NY Giants star Sterling Shepard and got high fives from a bunch of the players. Plus, the Knicks won! 

So mad I didn't know I was sitting next to Bucky!! Dammit I had questions!! @imsebastianstan @acausi

CNN's Brooke Baldwin Breaks Down When Anti-Trump Pundit Drops N-Word

11/22/2016 12:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin was NOT having it when a guest on her show used the n-word while criticizing Donald Trump's appointees, and she abruptly pulled the plug on the interview.

Author Charles Kaiser was ripping Stephen Bannon when he claimed Trump's Chief Strategist uses the racial epithet. Watch the reaction from Brooke and Paris Dennard -- a Trump supporter who's black and shocked as hell at the turn in the conversation.

The buck stopped with Brooke ... real quick.

update_graphic_red_bar2:00 PM PT -- Kaiser is apologizing to anyone offended by his use of the n-word, but thinks it's worse that he accused Bannon of using it instead of Jeff Sessions, Trump's potential Attorney General candidate. On Facebook he claims several witnesses will back his allegation. 

Worth noting ... Kaiser wrote out the n-word in full in his FB post.

Green Day Anti-Trump Chant Was Shock to ABC

11/21/2016 7:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar10:20 AM PT -- The anti-Trump chant was not pre-planned or withheld during rehearsals, it was a last minute decision by the band ... according to AMA sources.update_grey_gray_barGreen Day kept its plans to blast President-elect Donald Trump under wraps, never giving ABC or American Music Awards producers any warning ... TMZ has learned.

Witnesses at AMA rehearsals tell us Green Day performed its new song, "Bang Bang" ... but never included the chant, "No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!” ... which they added during the live broadcast. The performance ended with a standing O. We're told ABC execs were completely off-guard.

It's unclear if Green Day knowingly kept the chant out of rehearsals, or if Billie Joe Armstrong made a last minute decision to include the political message.

We've got a call in to their reps.

The guy who plays Aaron Burr in "Hamilton" doubled down Monday, essentially saying the play is an important statement about our history and therefore the cast has a responsibility to speak out.

Actor Brandon Dixon was on "CBS This Morning" and said what we all knew ... Lin-Manuel Miranda was behind the lecture Friday night that had Donald Trump demanding an apology.

Trump shouldn't hold his breath.

More like Hairy Bradshaw ... right!?!?! 

The NFL legend was feelin' all Zoolanderish behind the scenes during the "FOX NFL Sunday" kickoff show ... and showed off his furry physique for an impromptu modeling sesh. 

The whole thing was captured on video by co-host Charissa Thompson -- who was clearly impressed by Terry's chest fuzz. 

Howie Long ... not so much.

Exclusive Details

1118-boy-meets-world-house-for-sale-launch_2The house from the '90s hit show "Boy Meets World" is now ready and waiting for one nostalgic fan to snatch it up.

To be clear, the show starring Ben Savage as Cory Matthews wasn't shot on location, but this Studio City, CA crib was used for the show's exterior shots. It's a 2 bedroom, 2 bath on a .27 acre lot ... with a sick 2 story guest house.

Veteran actor Joe Campanella -- from "The Guiding Light," "The Practice" and a ton of other shows -- is selling the property for $1.595 million, and Lisa and Scott Sorrentino of Rodeo Realty are his reps.

Kind of a steal if you're a fan or just a wise investor.

Popeye had his spinach ... Shannon Brown has crazy sex with his hot, famous R&B singer wife. 

Monica was a guest co-host on "The Real" this week when she started dishing about how sex was her secret weapon to get her NBA husband to perform on the court. 

"Right before my daughter was conceived ... his career high was in Phoenix and he was jumping really high and we were going all the time," Monica said.

"That was in the earlier stages of marriage."

30-year-old Brown -- who famously played for the Lakers -- is currently on a comeback mission trying to get back to the NBA -- so, hope Monica's ready! 

Lena Headey Ultimate Doctor's Note We Need You in Europe for 'Game of Thrones'

11/18/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

111716-launch-lena-headey-letterLena Headey has pulled out the big guns in her custody war -- passing a letter to the judge from the "Game of Thrones" Executive Producer demanding her presence on the set.

Lena and ex-hubby Peter Loughran are in a 'GoT' war over custody of 6-year-old Wylie. Lena is begging the judge to modify the current custody order and allow her to keep the boy in the UK, where she films the show. Peter is dead set against it, claiming it would deny him access to his son.

The current order allows Lena to take the boy to the UK only when she films, and Peter says she should be done shooting and wants Wylie back. So Lena has now brought in the ultimate doctor's note from EP Bernadette Caulfield, who says she must stay in the UK for "possible addition scenes and pick-ups" through February 2017.

It's interesting ... the letter does not say her services are definitely necessary but, as you know, winter is coming, so she has to be on call.

Lena wants to move to the UK permanently, because her family is there and she thinks the schools are better. She also says she's paying Peter $10k a month in child support and he hasn't even seen the child in the last 3 months.

The judge has yet to rule.

'Making a Murderer' Brendan Dassey Will NOT Be Released ... For Now

11/17/2016 10:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1115-brendan-dassey-neutral-netflix-01Brendan Dassey had one foot out of his cell but the door has been slammed shut again ... at least for now.

A federal appeals court just ruled ... Wisconsin prison officials should ignore the ruling of a lower court, ordering the release of Dassey who was profiled on "Making a Murderer."  

The appeals court ruled it would be wrong to release the 27-year-old until prosecutors have a chance to appeal the ruling that the conviction was unconstitutional because it was based on an involuntary confession.

Dassey has been behind bars since 2006 for the murder of Teresa Halbach. Dassey, who was 16 at the time he confessed, was convicted along with his uncle, Steven Avery.
