Roseanne on Valerie Jarrett 'I Thought the Bitch was White!!!'

7/20/2018 3:40 AM PDT

Roseanne Barr let out a primal scream with one of her many explanations for the racist tweet targeted at Valerie Jarrett ... "I THOUGHT THE BITCH WAS WHITE!!!!!"

Roseanne was being interviewed about her comment, comparing former Obama White House staffer Valerie Jarrett to an ape. ABC quickly fired her, cancelled her show and then re-rebooted it as "The Connors."

The interviewer, Roseanne's 40-year-old-son Jake, is asking her about a prior video in which it sounds like Roseanne had worn multiple outfits. Roseanne listened to Jake as she manically puffed away on a cig, clearly agitated.

That's when she lets out the primal scream ... twice.

Up to now, she's tried apologizing to both Jarrett -- who is African-American -- and America for her comment, saying it was a stupid comment made while on Ambien and accepting the blame.

Roseanne posted the video on her YouTube page.

MLB's Josh Hader Sorry For N-Word, Anti-Gay Tweets ... 'I Was Immature'

7/18/2018 6:59 AM PDT
Breaking News

MLB All-Star pitcher Josh Hader has apologized for all of the insanely offensive tweets on his timeline -- including multiple attacks on gay people and use of the n-word -- explaining, "I was immature."

Back in 2011 and 2012, the Milwaukee Brewers star posted all sorts of hate speech -- throwing around the n-word multiple times and stating, "I hate gay people."

It all came to light Tuesday night while 24-year-old Hader was pitching in the All-Star game -- and, right after the game ended, reporters swarmed him to get some answers. 

"I was 17 years old and, as a child, I was immature and I obviously said some things that were inexcusable," Hader said. 

"That doesn't reflect on who I am as a person today, and that's just what it is."

The 24-year-old was backed by his teammates ... despite the racist commentary.

"We'll move on from it," said Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain -- who is African American.

"I know Hader. He's a great guy, a great teammate. So, I'm fine. Everybody will be OK. We'll move on from this for sure."

There has been some speculation Hader could be suspended for the tweets -- something the pitcher says he'll accept fully.

"I'm ready for any consequences that happen for what happened seven years ago."

Elon Musk to Thailand Rescuer So Sorry for Calling You a Pedo

7/18/2018 7:39 AM PDT

Elon Musk has fallen on the sword after lashing out in anger ... calling one of the Thailand rescuers a pedo.

Musk says he made the comment in anger, after British diver Vern Unsworth said Musk was guilty of a "PR stunt" by bringing a mini-submarine to Thailand to rescue the soccer players and their coach. Unsworth said the sub would have been useless in the rescue effort.

That's when Musk went on Twitter and called him a "pedo."

Musk now says, "My words were spoken in anger after Mr. Unsworth said several untruths ... Nonetheless, his actions against me do not justify my actions against him, and for that I apologize to Mr. Unsworth and to the companies I represent as a leader. The fault is mine and mine alone."

Although Musk deleted the "pedo" tweet, Tesla stock fell 3% Monday, although it more than recovered Tuesday.  

Unsworth had threatened legal action. He hasn't responded to Musk's apology.

 

Samantha Markle It's Meghan's Fault If Our Dad Dies!!!

7/18/2018 7:44 AM PDT

If Meghan Markle continues giving her father the cold shoulder, it might kill him ... or so Meghan's sister seemed to insinuate in an angry tirade.

Samantha Markle went off Tuesday evening, ripping into Meghan for allegedly shutting Thomas Markle out of her life. She said, "If our father dies I'm holding you responsible, Meg!" She also chastised Meghan for "paying tribute" to others while dissing her own blood. Meghan and Prince Harry attended a Nelson Mandela tribute yesterday.

As we reported, Thomas is vowing to continue speaking out to the media, at least until he has contact with Meghan. He told us no one is responding to the phone numbers he was given to reach her.

Samantha defended Thomas, saying ... "My father is not an embarrassment for loving his daughter. The royals are an embarrassment for being so cold."

There's plenty of bad blood between the half-sisters -- this isn't the first time Samantha's lashed out at Meghan.

As far as we know, Thomas is not in any immediate health crisis -- however, he did have that heart procedure that kept him from attending the wedding. 

Arnold Schwarzenegger Trump's a Putin Fanboy ... He Sold Out Our Country!!!

7/16/2018 4:49 PM PDT
Breaking News

Arnold Schwarzenegger is slamming President Trump for sucking up to Vladimir Putin and selling out the U.S. intelligence community in front of the whole world.

Arnold called 45's joint news conference with the Russian Prez an embarrassment because he "stood there like a little wet noodle ... like a little fanboy."

POTUS is facing heavy criticism for publicly blaming "both" sides -- Russia AND the U.S. -- for election interference, and saying Mueller's probe is driving a wedge between the countries. 

Arnold goes HAM on the Prez, and implores him to grow a more Reagan-esque backbone.

G-Eazy Dodges Questions About Halsey Breakup

7/16/2018 7:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

G-Eazy is taking the silent route when it comes to his failed relationship with singer Halsey.

We got Gerald at LAX Sunday where he looked like he was in a chipper mood until our camera guy started asking about his ex.

The two broke up abruptly a couple of weeks ago after dating for almost a year. Halsey recently hinted he cheated on her over Twitter.

G-Eazy was reportedly spotted leaving Warwick in L.A. Saturday night with Demi Lovato -- but we've learned the two were not together.

Looks like he's not a kiss and tell guy.

Big Gipp Future's Right To Want Due Credit Young Rappers, Give It Up

7/11/2018 11:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Future wants some respect put on his name for giving young rappers a style to run with and a way to make a living, and he's got a point ... so says a fellow Atlanta rap legend.

We got Big Gipp -- who's part of Goodie Mob, Dungeon Family and other OG rap groups out of ATL -- and he says Future's recent Twitter rant calling on up-and-coming MCs to thank him for pioneering their styles and ad libs is more than just warranted ... it's overdue.

Gipp does mention a few rap acts by name -- calling out Migos and Lil Baby -- but it's unclear who exactly Future was referring to during his extended gripe.

One thing's for sure though ... Gipp thinks Future is right up there with Gucci Mane (often credited with creating trap music) and should be given the same type of reverence.

Arsenio Hall Forgiving Roseanne ... It's Your Own Call

7/7/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Arsenio Hall says that if there were a comedy college, he and Roseanne Barr would've graduated from the same class, but he's sure got a funny way of dealing with her recent racist tweet.

We got Arsenio at the Laugh Factory in WeHo Thursday before his stand-up act at the Wear Your Voice Magazine fundraiser and asked him whether or not it was time to give Roseanne another shot.

The two have known each other for years ... they both had their own TV shows in the late '80s/early '90s and, by the sound of it, they've also spoken since the fallout from her racist tweet.

That said ... Arsenio thinks people need to decide for themselves on whether to forgive Barr or not and, considering he's clearly ready to joke about the incident, we're guessing Arsenio already has.

UFC star Max Holloway has broken his silence after the medical emergency that forced him to back out of his big fight at UFC 226 this weekend ... and he's vowing to return to the Octagon. 

Holloway was hospitalized this week after presenting concussion-like symptoms in the days before he was set to fight Brian Ortega in Vegas. Unclear what caused Max's condition. 

But now, Max is speaking out on Twitter ... saying simply, "It was what it was."

Holloway also had a message for fans -- saying he definitely plans to fight again as soon as possible. 

"I know this rollercoaster can be frustrating because my team is also on it with you. All I can say is I’m truly sorry and I hope you guys stay buckled in because it is far from being over."

Holloway also shouted out the UFC fighters who offered to fight Ortega in his place

"Respect to Ortega and his team. Thank you @danawhite and the @UFC staff for making my health priority. Also thank you to [Jeremy Stephens] and [Frankie Edgar] for being about that champ life and stepping up. I see you."

Holloway continued ... "Don’t let the bad surprises distract you from the good surprises in this great sport. The best is still blessed #blessyourself."

Paris Jackson Gets Restraining Order ... Against Alleged Stalker

7/3/2018 3:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Jackson went running to a judge for court-ordered protection against a guy she claims has been stalking her.

In court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Michael Jackson's only daughter says a man named Nicholas Lewis Stevens showed up at a recording studio she was working at in June. Paris had a brief interaction with Lewis, who allegedly told her he'd stopped by the studio on multiple occasions ... once waiting for 15 hours for her.

According to the docs, Paris' friend also confronted Lewis, asking why he was there, to which he replied, "What the f*** does it look like I'm doing here? I'm stalking your bitch." The cops were called and they detained Lewis after he allegedly told Paris, "By midnight it will all be over ... the way it ends is with her or with a shotgun."

The docs say Lewis tweeted at Paris too, saying they were soulmates. 

A judge sided with Paris and granted her a temporary restraining order. Lewis was ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from her and cut any type of communication until a hearing later this month. 

Amber Heard Warns Nannies, Housekeepers & Gardeners Watch Out for ICE Checkpoint!!!

7/3/2018 7:00 AM PDT

9:05 AM PT -- We did some digging and learned there are no ICE checkpoints being conducted. So, what's Amber talking about? Your guess is as good as ours.

Amber Heard's coming under fire for her racially-charged tweet ... warning housekeepers, nannies and gardeners about an ICE checkpoint.

The actress took to Twitter just after midnight on Tuesday and said, "Just heard there's an ICE checkpoint in [H]ollywood, a few blocks from where I live. Everyone better give their housekeepers, nannies and landscapers a ride home tonight."

The outrage was immediate. One person responded, "I can see where you were going but somewhere along the way you took a wrong turn. Delete this sis." Another person wrote back, "I would expect you to have a little more sense than this, but... you did date Johnny Depp."

Amber fired off a second tweet 10 minutes later in an attempt to clarify and shed light on the turbulent political climate. She wrote, "Checkpoints on your home streets.... Is this the 'great' America we’re aiming for? Raids, fences and police-state like checkpoints don’t feel like the ‘land of the free’ our immigrant ancestors built."

Heard tweeted again Tuesday morning, saying, "With this human rights crisis being so politicized, it is hard to make a simple statement w/out it being used to distract from the real issues. Its hard for everyone to not be negatively affected by this subject n some way."

For what it's worth, some did come to Amber's defense. One person replied, "I think the tweet is meant to be sarcastic...sorta calling out the elites who do hire these ppl in these profession. I could be wrong here...but that's how I read it upon first glance."

Farrah Abraham to Drita D'Avanzo Slap Me When You See Me? Good Luck w/ That!!

7/3/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham's seen the last of Drita D'Avanzo's face ... Farrah doesn't run in pathetic circles and that's why Drita's slap to the face will NEVER come to fruition.

Farrah tells TMZ ... the ex-'Teen Mom' OG star has zero plans to ever be near the likes of the former "Mob Wives" star, and the reason's simple ... Farrah doesn't ever want to associate with someone like her. As Farrah put it, "I don't see pathetic people."

As we reported ... the reality stars are beefing after Farrah called out Drita on Instagram. Farrah tells us Drita's "lack of professionalism started it" when Drita bailed after dinner for the event they were supposed to co-host in Atlantic City. Drita reportedly said she was there and no one paid attention to Farrah.

Farrah scoffs at the notion she's an unknown. She says, "I'm sure she's not invited to the ESPYs."

As for reports her lawyers are gunning for a restraining order ... Farrah tells us the only thing her lawyers have fired off is a cease and desist to get Drita to stop making threats against her.

7/3 6:27 AM PT -- Drita tells TMZ ... "She already backed down by getting a lawyer involved with the restraining order bulls**t. Tell that pig I'm going to call her people and book an appearance for her at my house! I'll pay her the 2 hrs even though her appearance will last about a minute."

Bella Hadid No, I Didn't Bang Drake ... Not Me on 'Scorpion'

6/29/2018 2:48 PM PDT

Bella Hadid isn't the chick Drake raps about hooking up with on his new album ... the two are close friends, and that's it.

Drizzy fans jumped all over the track "Finesse" Friday, trying to figure out the identity of the woman he's rapping about in the following verses:

"Should I do New York? I can't decide. Fashion week is more your thing than mine."

"You and your sister. Too hot to handle."

Bella quickly became suspect #1 ... and the Internet took off with that as fact. However, Bella's speaking up and saying flat-out the chick ain't her.

Hadid just replied to some trolls, saying, "Not me!!! that's disrespectful. WHY CANT PPL BE FRIENDS W/o all the insinuation."

One suspect ruled out ... and a ton more to go.
