LeBron James

Chasin' Waterfalls

... On Family Vacay

7/23/2015 3:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James is not sticking to the rivers and lakes that he's used to -- instead he took the whole damn fam on vacation to Hawaii, and had a run-in with a waterfall that had him grinning from ear-to-ear. 

The whole James gang ... including mama Gloria and her rapper fiance' Lambo ...  are over in Kona, Hawaii, and so far the highlight of the trip is this tropical dip.

LBJ's got a lot to celebrate -- a bonafide Hollywood hit with "Trainwreck," and a lucrative new development deal with Warner Bros.

It's always good to the be king (except sometimes in the NBA Finals).

Let the Foam Begin!

EXCLUSIVE

0722_foam_party_primary_gall_launchParis Hilton made a triumphant -- and soaking wet -- return to her summer home ... reminding us why they keep paying through the nose to bring her back to Ibiza. 

Hilton was the main attraction Saturday night at Amnesia's Foam & Diamonds party, where she'll be DJing every Saturday night for the next few months. We're told the club owner said last weekend's opening party was the biggest money maker, so far this summer.

Paris' millionaire BF, Thomas Gross was there, and bought out the entire VIP balcony for himself and friends. Not to be outdone, we're told someone from Dubai came in and dropped $100k on endless bottles of Cristal. 

The party went on til 7:30 AM and was capped off when Paris doused the crowd with foam from above. But the most fun part for Paris had to be the paycheck. We hear she's getting $300k per gig!

Saturday nights are way more than alright for P.

Here's (in order) Gabrielle UnionDwyane Wade, Chris Paul and LeBron James cruising around the Bahamas ... with a giant inflatable banana between their legs. Fun!

The real question is ... who's recruiting who?

Teamin' Up

To Party On $29 Million Yacht

7/3/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0702-jus-j-yacht-twitter-01LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have reunited ... all aboard an insane $29 MILLION yacht in the Bahamas ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

James and his wife, Savannah -- along with Wade and Gabrielle Union -- have been staying on a yacht called the Just J's ... a top of the line ship built in 2011 ... and owned by billionaire businessman Jay Schottenstein. 

Jay is big in the Ohio community ... so is LeBron (duh) -- so we're guessing that's how they know each other. 

The boat is MASSIVE -- 150 feet long ... with 5 cabins, a sick bar, fancy dining room and a hot tub. 

Sources tell us ... the ballers have been hanging out on land too -- recently gambling at the Atlantis casino. We're told the gang ran into Mike Tyson, who was celebrating his birthday, and they partied together. 

Pretty cool, right?

Here's What You Missed At

the Kimye Wedding

0629-kris-jenner-corey-gamble-splash-02Kris Jenner took her man Corey Gamble to the Palace of Versailles in France over the weekend ... and no doubt regaled him with tales of the Kim Kardashian/Kanye West wedding.

Kris has the most epic Versailles photos ever, but she and Corey still snapped a few selfies as they walked among the common folk.

The question ... did she mention Louis XIV?

Katie Couric

Brings the Girls Out In Barbados

Katie Couric Hot BodyThis just in from Katie Couric ... America's sweetheart has cleavage and she ain't afraid to show it off ... even at 58.

The former TV host/anchor was looking good in a low-cut one piece down in Barbados. She hit the beach with new hubby John Molner -- and even got a little frisky in the water. 

There's some buzz Katie might be up for Brian Wiliams' job at NBC -- but it looks like she has better things to do for now.

Pisses Off Mosque Leaders

Selena Gomez Mosqueupdate_graphic_red_barSelena deleted the photo Thursday afternoon.update_grey_gray_barSelena Gomez stripped down and showed way too much skin on her ankles while visiting a mosque in Abu Dhabi -- and now she's getting blasted for her "disrespectful" poses.

Gomez and co. -- Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Cody Simpson, and Shay Mitchell -- posted a few photos this week taken inside the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque ... which is now getting flooded with complaints. 

1231-sub-selena-gomez-mosquesquad-instagram-01
Folks at the mosque tell us the main issues their members have with the pics are: 

1) Selena's exposed leg, and her sexy pose ... both are no-nos. It's a respect thing.
2) Mosque rules prohibit laughing and smiling ... again, it's about respect.

Selena did one-up Rihanna, in a sense. RiRi visited the same mosque last year, but when she posted pics ... she was immediately asked to leave. Mosque leaders went easier on Selena. 

Maybe they're just not that into her.

British BFFs Gordon Ramsay and David Beckham eschewed the usual celebrity vacation spots for something uniquely American ... a hike in the Grand Canyon.

A lucky hiker shot video last week of Ramsay, Becks and wifey Victoria Beckham making their way downward on the Bright Angel Trail.

As for how the video came to be, the guy who shot it tells TMZ he didn't notice any of the celebs until he reviewed the footage later. Happy accident!!!

The Ramsays and Beckhams are no strangers to vacationing together, having celebrated the New Year allegedly somewhere in Asia.

DITCHING Hot GF to

Bro Out on Tropical Island

Michael Phelps
told Bob Costas he wanted to travel the world after retiring from swimming ... and now TMZ has learned that Stop #1 is gonna be AWESOME ... a boys trip to one of the most expensive tropical islands in the world!!

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Phelps is planning to visit the Maldives with several close male friends in the near future -- a notoriously expensive island destination for the rich and famous ... so obviously, it's amazing.

But here's the rub -- we're told one person was NOT invited ... Michael's hot GF Megan Rossee.

According to sources, Michael wanted to do a boys' trip after his record-setting Olympic Games in London -- so he's going without the ol' ball and chain.

(FYI -- the Maldives is an archipelago located in the Indian Ocean, and is Asia's SMALLEST country. Sitting at just 4'11" above sea level, it's also the world's LOWEST country. The more you know.)

But Phelps hasn't completely forgotten about his one and only -- we're told Michael promised to make it up to Megan by taking her on a separate trip ... just the two of 'em ... anywhere in the world.

Not a bad consolation prize.

Chloë Sevigny

You're a 19th Century

Dead Man

10/31/2010 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chloë Sevigny is so obsessed with a brutal century-old murder in New England -- she slept in the house where the killer hacked up the bodies ... and as the legend goes, the place is haunted.

1029_chloe_launch_photo

You're looking at pics from the Lizzie Borden House in Fall River, Massachusetts -- named after a woman who allegedly murdered her elderly parents in cold blood, using nothing but a hatchet.

Who'da thunk ... the famous house is now a bed and breakfast -- and Chloë was one of its most recent guests ... doing a dead-on corpse impression, and even spending the night in Lizzie Borden's old bed.

For the record, Lizzie was accused of the murders but never convicted -- the creepy part ... no one else was ever arrested or tried.
