Donald Trump Shame on Us For Removing Confederate Statues

8/17/2017 6:28 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump is fighting like General Robert E. Lee to preserve the symbols of the Confederacy ... and he's resorting to shame.

Trump just tweeted, "Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments."

He goes on ... "You can't change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson -- who's next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish!"

Trump does not elaborate on the lessons we can learn from the statues.

And, he says, "Also, the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!"

A number of cities are removing Confederate monuments in the wake of the Charlottesville violence.

'Hamilton' Star Maybe Washington, Jefferson Statues Should Come Down

8/16/2017 1:27 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Hamilton" star Leslie Odom Jr. actually thinks President Trump could have a point  -- but not in the way Trump thought -- because he thinks removing George Washington and Thomas Jefferson statues is worthy of discussion.

We got the actor -- who famously played Aaron Burr in the smash musical -- at LAX Wednesday and asked about Trump's argument that removing the statue of Robert E. Lee could open the door to 86'ing the famous presidents.

Washington and Jefferson owned slaves ... so, he says fair question.

Donald Trump Ex-Campaign Mgr. Sued He Threatened us with a Baseball Bat

8/16/2017 8:05 AM PDT

President Donald Trump's ex-campaign manager threatened his neighbors with a baseball bat and vaguely threatened to get the President involved ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Corey Lewandowski -- the same guy infamously charged with misdemeanor battery for manhandling a reporter at a Trump campaign event in 2016 -- allegedly threatened to use his political connections to bury his neighbors after a land dispute.

In docs, Glenn and Irene Schwartz also claim Lewandowski intimidated them by standing outside with a baseball bat. The beef stems over Lewandowski's claim -- in a $5 million lawsuit -- his neighbors blocked access to his pond-front lot in Windham, New Hampshire.

The neighbors countersued ... alleging the threats caused them emotional distress, and that Lewandowski illegally tapped into a private well on their property disrupting their electrical power. The Schwartzes are suing for unspecified damages.

'Big Brother' Sexual Hijinks Rampant 'You Punched My Vagina!'

8/11/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The "Big Brother" house is a cauldron of sexual shenanigans ... or so it seems judging from the 24-hour live feeds.

It's shocking ... a male cast member grabbing Jessica Graf's vagina, women butt poking men, men butt poking women, men butt poking men, and it's all on video.

TMZ broke the story ... Jessica appeared to start it, and it seemed it was to the dismay of other housemates. But now we see, it's become a thing in the house.

These latest clips show Matthew Clines, Paul Abrahamian, Ramses Soto and Elena Davies all partaking in a sneak butt poke or two. Paul gets 2 off, both on male cast members ... one of whom Elena also pokes. Jessica Graf even accuses Matt of punching her vagina ... and her roommates laugh.

It's interesting ... Matt called Jessica a sexual predator when she poked his ass, and Paul later complained to Kevin about Jessica's ongoing poke joke in the house.

We got Les Moonves out at Craig's last night and he said he hadn't seen the footage of Jessica, but he would watch it today.  

Stay tuned

Paige VanZant Stitches Up Bloody Foot ... Resumes Fight Training

8/10/2017 3:13 PM PDT

Paige VanZant won't let a massive bloody wound keep her from fighting -- she's already stitched up the gash on her foot and got back on her grind. 

The UFC superstar opened up a gnarly hole in her foot on Wednesday -- but one day later, she was back working out ... hitting a set of crunches with a fresh set of stitches.

VanZant is rumored to fight Jessica Eye at UFC 216 in October -- and at this point, it doesn't appear she's gonna let the injury keep her out of the Octagon.

Donald Trump First Communications Director Welcomes Love Child And His Wife is Down with It!

8/10/2017 4:13 AM PDT
Breaking News

The man Donald Trump picked to be his communications director who mysteriously resigned before the inauguration has just had 2 babies ... but only one of them with his wife.

Jason Miller, the guy who was Trump's official mouthpiece during last year's presidential run, has fathered a baby with Trump loyalist/attorney/talking head A.J. Delgado.

Numerous reports surfaced after Miller resigned that he and Delgado had been having an affair for months, and the stories made news when Miller, Delgado and others partied at a Vegas strip club the night before one of the presidential debates.

Delgado didn't really keep it much of a secret after Miller's resignation, calling him, "the 2016 version of John Edwards."

Now get this ... Miller confirmed the birth of the child to Page Six, saying, "My wife and I, along with our two daughters, are excited to welcome William into the world and into our family, and we appreciate the well wishes we've received from so many" -- i.e., he says his wife is down with it!

For her part, in the last 12 hours A.J. has gone on a Twitter tirade railing on Miller, saying, "I'm not sure what Jason means that he and his wife are excited to welcome Will. Really? News to me. Let me shut up before I say more..."

But that was after A.J. went in on Page Six, claiming, "At least 5 wrong facts in your article. Really bizarre. And you never attempted to contact me by phone today. That's a lie."

Not to mention, before the article even broke she, without naming Miller as the father, tweeted, "The father did not/has not sent the child even a $1, or a single gift/item. I have had to pay for/cover everything myself. Cheers."

Congratulations? 

Britney Spears Bum-Rushed Onstage 'He's Got a Gun?!'

8/10/2017 6:40 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

11:12 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the man who crashed Britney's set is 37-year-old Jess Webb. We're told he was acting disorderly during her performance from out in the crowd, and was asked to leave by security. That's when he jumped onstage and got tackled. He was arrested for trespassing -- no weapons were found on him. Dude looks like a charmer. 

Britney Spears got bum-rushed by a guy who is probably hurting this morning, because her dancers and bodyguards annihilated him.

It went down Wednesday night in Vegas at Britney's Piece of Me show at Planet Hollywood. As Britney sang "Till the World Ends" ...  a man crept onto the stage and made his move.

Security and the dancers lunged at the guy as Britney seemed oblivious to the danger. You hear her ask if everything is OK. Check it out ... Britney's knee buckled as she clutched a security guard and asked, "He's got a gun?"

The man was subdued and ejected, but not before either kicking or kneeing one of the guards.

Gov Terry McAuliffe to Trump Knock Off 'Fire and Fury' Talk

8/9/2017 10:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gov. Terry McAuliffe has a clear message for Donald Trump for the sake of world salvation -- "Knock it off."

We got the Virginia democrat at an event Wednesday in Pentagon City, and he's alarmed to say the least at the President's "fire and fury" rhetoric directed at North Korea.

It's interesting ... check out this video of President Harry Truman back in August 1945 -- the day we dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima -- when he used language almost identical in tone to Trump's.

'Big Brother' Houseguests Furious Over Unwanted Butt Poking

8/9/2017 9:23 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Several "Big Brother" competitors are claiming their butts are being violated by a fellow houseguest for weeks -- who's been captured on video jamming her fingers into various dumpers without consent.

The anal invader is Jessica Graf -- whose schtick is to approach unsuspecting houseguests from behind and surprise them with a deep oil check.

Graf has been recorded pulling the move on Paul and Matt -- who were upset about it and confronted Jessica. Problem is, she laughed it off as a joke.

Another female houseguest, Alex, claims Jessica pulled the same move on her -- poking her in the butt and the vagina.

During a live feed from the house, Alex got emotional when describing the incidents to houseguest Josh -- and said it affected her because a family member had been raped and killed.

Paul and Kevin have discussed Jessica's actions in the house -- and said if she was a man poking women, she would be in jail for sexual assault.

We reached out to CBS for comment. So far, no word back.

Amber Rose Sued for Defamation by Wiz Khalifa's Mom

8/8/2017 11:49 AM PDT

Amber Rose launched into a profanity-laced phone call accusing Wiz Khalifa's mother of being an unfit grandmother ... so says Wiz's mom in a lawsuit.

Katie Wimbush-Polk is reportedly suing Amber for defamation because she says Wiz's ex said she was responsible for her child's death. Khalifa's sibling, Dorien "Lala", died in February of complications from lymphoma.

In the suit -- as reported by the Washington Observer-Reporter -- Amber made the phone call to Katie after Katie allegedly reported Amber to California Child Welfare Services. Katie denies making the call, and nothing came of it when child services visited Amber on June 19.

Wiz's mom is suing for damages. We've reached out to Amber, so far no word back.

Lori Loughlin Defends Daughter ... Vlogging Didn't Cause Her Car Crash!

8/8/2017 8:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lori Loughlin vehemently denies her daughter was filming herself behind the wheel moments before she got into a car crash ... which was posted on YouTube, but has since been taken down.

The "Fuller House" star was at LAX when we asked about allegations her 17-year-old daughter, YouTube star Olivia Jade Giannulli, was vlogging while driving ... capturing the moment a truck rear-ended her, shoving her into another car.

Olivia reportedly posted the video Sunday to her nearly 1 million subscribers. Daily Mail posted 6 screen grabs showing her behind the wheel, and reported Olivia vowed to never vlog or text while driving right after the accident.

Mama Bear says the report is total BS, and insists her daughter never recorded while driving. It's impossible to compare her explanation though .. Olivia's video has been taken down from YouTube, for some reason.

Chris Brown I Still Got Eyes for Rihanna ... But Her Fans Ain't Havin' It

8/8/2017 6:47 AM PDT

Chris Brown came for Rihanna again ... now her fans are going after him.

RiRi's ridiculously hot photo Monday from the Crop Over Festival in Barbados was too much for even the guy convicted of beating her to resist. Brown left the googly eyes emoji as a comment on Rihanna's IG post, and the backlash started immediately.

A few choice words for him:
- ur ass better stay away from her don't even as much LOOK at her account SMH
- go away demon
- leave
- Can we all give a collective "BOII WTF U THINKIN" to Chris Brown's comment on Rihanna's insta????

The answer to the last one is definitely yes. While Brown's no longer on probation for beating his ex, we're guessing his lawyers would agree this is a bad look.

Charlamagne tha God Threatens Rolling Stone Over 'Transphobic Comments' Story

8/7/2017 12:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Charlamagne tha God is threatening to sue Rolling Stone if it doesn't apologize for accusing him of making transphobic comments.

The 'Breakfast Club' host fired off a legal letter to the magazine saying its July 31 article on Rollingstone.com, headlined ... "Janet Mock on Charlamagne tha God's Transphobic Comments," is defamatory as hell since he didn't make such comments.

Rolling Stone has since changed its headline to "Janet Mock Speaks Out Following Charlamagne tha God's Controversial Morning Show." But the DJ is still furious and he's demanding an apology, full retraction and money for damage to his reputation.

You'll recall Charlamagne had comedian Lil Duval on his show, and outrage ensued after Duval said if he ever discovered he'd unknowingly slept with a transgender woman, she would be "dying."

Charlamagne seemed to condemn the remark and reminded Duval it's a hate crime. But Charlamagne says RS took his words out of context to write a fictitious and negative story.

We've reached out to Rolling Stone, so far no word back.
