The Big Baller Dad issued a warning to the Wiz -- who are set to play Lonzo's Lakers on Wednesday -- after L.A. dropped to 1-2 on Sunday ...

"They better beware, 'cause Lonzo ain't losin' again. Not in the same week!"

The Polish Hammer wasn't havin' none of that -- letting LaVar know Wall's comin' for 'Zo just like Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley did in the Lake Show's season opener.

Stephen Belafonte Mel B Threw Out My Baby Pics ... Left Me Her Old Clothes

10/23/2017 10:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B coldly boxed up and tossed out her estranged husband's stuff ... according to Stephen Belafonte, who's not taking it well.

Stephen says Mel packed up 10 boxes of his belongings, which he picked up on Oct. 4 -- but he was shocked at what was NOT in the boxes. He says he was expecting to see his personal baby pics, clothes, shoes and paperwork.

Instead, he says all he got were Mel's old clothes, some crappy used towels and his step daughter Angel's clothes. Stephen thinks Mel trashed his stuff in retaliation. He's filed docs asking the judge to let him go on a search and recover mission.

Remember, Mel has a restraining order against Stephen -- but he's requesting a 2-3 hour reprieve, so he can go into the house and get his stuff.

Matt Damon & George Clooney Weinstein Was an A**hole! But We Never Witnessed Him Preying on Women

10/23/2017 7:32 AM PDT

Harvey Weinstein was proudly a bully and a womanizer -- but kept his sexual preying on women secret from his inner circle ... according to Matt Damon and George Clooney.

Matt spoke out about the Weinstein scandal Monday on 'GMA,' and said he'd never seen Harvey assault anyone, but was aware of the Gwyneth Paltrow incident. Still, he says he only saw Weinstein treat Gwyneth "incredibly respectfully."

George said it was beyond infuriating that Weinstein was silencing women, but thinks the scandal will finally shut down the infamous casting couch ... IF Hollywood reacts the right way.

Weinstein ended a one-week rehab treatment program. As for second chances -- Clooney and Damon don't sound too open to the idea.

EXCLUSIVE

Bill Murray's putting his foot down -- want an autograph? Cough up a donation, and $3 is NOT gonna cut it.

We got Bill out in D.C. on Sunday signing his John Hancock and noticed autograph seekers were also handing him cash. Turns out he was signing under one condition -- donate $20 towards hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and you've got a deal.

Check it out ... everyone's on board. Well, almost everyone. Some dude tried getting a discount, but Bill wasn't having it and he gave the guy a sick burn.

French President Macron's Dog Wee Wee!!!

10/23/2017 6:08 AM PDT

President Emmanuel Macron's dog got a leg up on his owner Sunday ... when he pissed on a fireplace during an official meeting ... and the Prez lost it!

Listen as you watch the video ... you hear the pee stream loud and clear and Macron busts up.

He was meeting with the junior minister for ecology, and other junior members of his government.

Nemo's a black lab that was the first Presidential pet to come from a rescue shelter. We're guessing he gets a pass.

What a relief.

Kathy Griffin Hard Break with Lisa Bloom ... Over Trump Beheading Pic

10/22/2017 3:58 PM PDT

Kathy Griffin has apparently cut off her old attorney, Lisa Bloom ... and it all seems to be traced back to her Trump beheading photo and subsequent press conference.

Kathy tweeted (without much context) early Sunday morning, telling @LisaBloom to "pls stop calling me" and that if she wanted to talk ... she'd have to refund her the "tens of thousands of $$ I wasted on your services" for Kathy to even consider it.

Lisa responded Sunday afternoon claiming Kathy's attacks were unwarranted ... adding she even went way off script during their press conference back in June. You'll recall ... Kathy said President Trump and his family were bullying her, and attempting to ruin her career.

As you watch the video now ... you see Lisa staring at Kathy in disbelief as she speaks. Lisa says Kathy is her first client to not stick to prepared comments they both agreed to -- she also says she got death and rape threats as a result of partnering with Kathy.

Still ... Lisa says she wishes Kathy the best, and even thinks she meant no ill will with the photo. In other words ... see ya.

Harry Styles Fan Grabs His Crotch Onstage ... He Plays It Off

10/22/2017 2:15 PM PDT

Harry Styles is a true professional ... considering he acted like nothing happened when an overzealous fan reached up and grabbed his crotch while he was performing in L.A.

Harry was doing a show Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl, when -- in the middle of one of his songs -- someone reached up from the front row and copped a feel of his goods ... which he quickly batted away and ignored as he went back upstage.

Harry hasn't addressed the groping yet, but you can clearly see he wasn't down with it ... and many have even come out to call it sexual assault ... in a time when the subject is at the forefront in Hollywood.

Sign of the times?

Sean Penn Tries Blocking Netflix Documentary Suggesting He Ratted Out El Chapo

10/19/2017 11:19 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sean Penn is using a full-court press to either block or re-edit a Netflix documentary that suggests Penn ratted out El Chapo by alerting the United States Dept. of Justice of his whereabouts.

Multiple sources involved in the documentary -- due out Friday -- tell TMZ, some of the people interviewed suggest that Penn alerted the DOJ that he was traveling down to a secret location in Mexico to interview the drug kingpin for a Rolling Stone article.

TMZ has obtained an email from David Broome, the Executive Producer of "The Day I Met El Chapo: The Kate del Castillo Story," in which he worries ... "My concern is that we are taking an immense amount of pressure from all directions related to Sean Penn and currently Netflix has done a great job of hanging tough -- but their nerves are on edge."

Broome goes on ... "I'm worried that there's a chance Netflix hits the brakes for a while."

Penn, del Castillo and 2 others met Chapo on Oct. 2, 2015. Twelve hours after the meeting, Mexican authorities raided the site but Chapo had already left. He was captured 3 months later.

We've learned several lawyers working for Penn repeatedly contacted Netflix to, at the very least, eliminate any references to their client allegedly contacting DOJ prior to meeting Chapo.

Our sources say Penn's concern is that if Chapo's associates in the world of drugs believe he set Chapo up for capture, there'd be a target on the heads of Penn, his family and his associates.

Penn's spokesperson, Mark Fabiani, tells TMZ, "It is reprehensible that, in their ongoing, relentless efforts to gain additional attention and publicity, Ms. del Castillo and her team (who have zero firsthand knowledge) have sought to create this profoundly false, foolish, and reckless narrative."

The rep goes on, "The notion that Mr. Penn or anyone on his behalf alerted DOJ to the trip is a complete fabrication and bald-faced lie. It never happened, nor would there have been any reason for it to have happened."

O'Shea Jackson Hayward Bit By 'Celtic Luck' ... Shoulda Chose Lakers

10/19/2017 7:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

O'Shea Jackson Jr. says there's one way Gordon Hayward could've avoided that gruesome bone-snapping leg injury this week -- "Should've been a Laker."

"I feel bad for Gordon Hayward," the "Straight Outta Compton" star told us on the way out of Delilah in West Hollywood ... "but that's that Celtic luck!"

Ouch.  

Don't worry, there's more -- Cube's son also pledges allegiance to the Ball family, hollers at some chicks and says the best player in the NBA is still Kobe Bryant. It's pretty funny. 

And don't miss the parting shot at Danny Ainge.

Courtney Love I'll Take a Pass On Weinstein 'I Told You So' Jokes

10/19/2017 6:57 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Courtney Love is taking the high road when it comes to gloating about Harvey Weinstein -- and best of all for her ... she's doing it with a couple of hot young dudes.

We got Courtney Wednesday night arriving at Delilah in WeHo with 2 "sexy men" -- her words -- and, as expected, she got a bunch of softball Weinstein questions. Seeing as how she fired a warning shot about Harvey way back in 2005 ... this could've been her chance to drop several I-told-you-so's on Hollywood.

You'll recall, Courtney says CAA banned her after calling out Weinstein -- and maybe that explains her response to all the questions about him.

Or maybe she's just busy enjoying her company. 

Post Malone How to Be a Rockstar ... Multiple Attempts Required

EXCLUSIVE

Post Malone quickly realized technique is everything if you wanna be a guitar-smashing rock star -- but he was still able to live up to his own song title. Eventually.

Post was doing a show Tuesday night in Fort Lauderdale, when he had Postmates deliver a sweet red guitar from a local Guitar Center. We're told it cost him about $1,000.

He originally asked for 100 guitars, with the idea of smashing 'em onstage while performing his new #1 hit with 21 Savage, "Rockstar." Fortunately, he stuck with just one ... 'cause it was a bitch to break.

For those about to rock, Post salutes you! Slowly.

Hailey Baldwin Leather Weather? ... Hell YEAH!

Hailey Baldwin is hell-bent on leather ... even in hellish-like weather.

The model was seen rocking an almost fully leather ensemble Tuesday in Bev Hills, where temps are supposed to reach the upper 80s.

That's not a problem for Hailey, apparently -- she was decked out in leather Bermuda shorts and a leather jacket ... plus heels, of course. We're told the look is from WHYTE STUDIO SS18.

On a positive note, she did manage to show some skin even under all the cow ... always a good thing, if you ask us.

Looking fine at 86 degrees ... no sweat.

Sean Avery got a sweet deal in his drug possession and criminal mischief case ... and if he keeps his nose clean ... it'll be off his record.

Avery -- who was facing jail time -- caught a break ... accepting a deal that will see the charges dismissed if he can go 45 days without getting in trouble, according to Southhampton PD.

He ain't totally in the clear ... Avery does have to pay $746.25 in damages.
