Roy Moore Loses Alabama Senate Election Against Doug Jones

12/12/2017 7:36 PM PST
Breaking News

The contentious and highly publicized race for Alabama's vacant Senate seat is finally over ... and the victor is Doug Jones.

Roy Moore lost the special election for the seat left open by Jeff Sessions Tuesday night, to his Democratic opponent Jones, by a slim margin ... amidst the mounting allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls when he was in his 30s.

Moore and his campaign chairman appeared on stage shortly after Jones' acceptance speech to announce they'd continue to watch votes come in, hoping the margin of victory is less than .5% for Jones to trigger an automatic recount ... but that seems very unlikely.

As we reported ... Moore rode in horseback to cast his ballot Tuesday -- and the showmanship apparently didn't pay off. It's unclear if his spokesman's TV appearances had any effect.

President Trump weighed in on Moore's loss by seemingly taking the high road.

Julie Chen Heartbroken Over Keaton Video But Mom Makes it 'Murky'

12/12/2017 7:41 AM PST

Julie Chen's a solid multitasker -- she pulled no punches for Kimberly Jones while showing major compassion for Keaton getting bullied.

We got the "Big Brother" and 'Talk' host leaving Craig's in WeHo Monday night, and asked her if photos of Keaton's mom with Confederate flags makes her uneasy about the flood of support for Keaton -- some of it financial.

Julie's clearly not a fan of those Kimberly pics, but she's found a way to separate that from Keaton's battles with bullies.

Roy Moore's Wife We're Not Anti-Semites ... Some of Our Best Lawyers Are Jews

12/11/2017 7:04 PM PST
Breaking News

Roy Moore and his wife rolled out that old tried-and-true response to allegations they're anti-Semitic -- pointing out they employ Jews. 

Kayla Moore was speaking at an event for her husband Monday night in Alabama, on the eve of the special Senate election, when she made the cringeworthy comment.

Kayla said the "fake news" would have you believe they don't care for Jews, and she wanted to set the record straight once and for all. Not sure this shout-out to their legal team will get the job done, but here it is. 

Kayla added some of their closest friends are Jewish, too. Seriously. That's almost word-for-word how she said it. 

As the Moore's inner circle might say ... oy vey!

Gigi Hadid That Wasn't Armpit Hair, Guys Blame It On Wardrobe!

12/11/2017 12:31 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Gigi Hadid wasn't trying to show off her unshaven pits during her LOVE Magazine photo shoot -- 'cause the fuzz folks saw was nothin' but loose fibers ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Gigi tell us her "armpit hair" -- which was prominently featured in day 11 of LOVE Magazine's Advent calendar video series -- was, in fact, residue left behind from the jacket she was wearing on set.

We're told the culprit was simply that navy cropped coat Gigi is seen wearing in the vid -- ya know, the one in which she's striking poses and kinda working up a sweat. Makes sense some of that could've gotten stuck to her. 

What doesn't make sense is that no one on set saw the hairy stuff during the shoot, or even while editing the video.

Bullied Student Keaton Jones' Mom Gets Backlash Over Confederate Flag

12/11/2017 10:47 AM PST

Photos and words posted by Tennessee student Keaton Jones' mother have many people questioning whether she deserves any of the sympathy generated by Keaton's viral video.

Kimberly Jones' Facebook page reportedly features several photos of herself and friends displaying the Confederate flag. There's also a post in August where she seems to be telling people to stop whining about slavery and racism. It's not clear exactly what she's referring to, but the post was written 2 weeks after the neo-nazi rally in Charlottesville.

One of the photos on her page shows Keaton and a few other kids. Keaton is holding the U.S. flag and another kid is holding the Confederate flag.

The video Kimberly posted of Keaton talking about getting bullied has won over a ton of celebs -- many of whom have invited him and his mom to Hollywood and sporting events.

You gotta wonder ... if Kimberly's posts -- especially the one where she shows zero sympathy for "butt hurt Americans" -- will make celebs and others reconsider their sympathy for her and Keaton.

Chris Brown My Baby Girl's Monkeyin' Around!

12/8/2017 8:54 AM PST

Chris Brown could've done a puppy or kitten, but instead he went exotic for Royalty's early Christmas gift, and hooked her up with ... a brand new monkey!!!

Chris' daughter got cozy with her gift, cradling what looks like a baby capuchin monkey. Dad joked with Royalty that her new "baby" would get bigger than her -- which seems like maybe a good reason NOT to give her a monkey.

But for now, it is super cute ... especially when it's this tiny and in diapers.

Royalty seems stoked, but a lot of fans let Chris have it on social media -- pointing out the exotic pet is better off in the wild, instead of his home.

Simon Cowell's Neighbor Goes Crazy on Mogul for Blocking House Threats Caught on Video

12/7/2017 10:16 AM PST

Simon Cowell's London neighbor went ballistic outside Simon's home Tuesday night, threatening to smash cars with a golf club.

The neighbor was apparently pissed off at Simon for parking in front of his house.

The neighbor came out of his home wielding a golf club as he hurled insults in the direction of Simon's mansion, saying, "He's a twat. I hate him."

The guy seems to carry a grudge over Simon's fame, apparently believing Simon can get away with things non-famous people can't.

Cops were called to diffuse the situation.

Cowell was home and actually appears on the video, joking that he's having "just a bit" of trouble with his neighbor. 

Conor McGregor Shows Rita Ora Love at the Club ... After 'Date Night'

12/7/2017 9:01 AM PST
Breaking News

Conor McGregor fueled Rita Ora dating rumors on Wednesday night ... shouting her out at the club while patting his heart BEFORE showing love to his baby mama, Dee Devlin.

C'mon bro ... 

Remember, it was just a few days ago Conor was hanging out with Ora at the British Fashion Awards. She posted pics of the 2 of them together with the caption, "Date night." 

Fast-forward to Wednesday night at Cirque le Soir in London ... where The Notorious was out with his bros, letting loose on the dance floor to The Notorious B.I.G.

Conor hopped on the mic and said, "What's up, Rita Ora!" ... and then put his hand over his heart.

Moments later, he shouted out Dee ... but no heart gesture that time. 

MC GREGOR !!!!! @cirquelesoir @thenotoriousmma #cirquelesoir Only for the champions 🥊🤺🤺

A post shared by Francois D.L.N 🇬🇧🇫🇷🇲🇺 (@cirquelesoir_francois) on

McGregor's probably just trolling (since that's what he does) -- but he and Rita did look awful cozy Monday night ...

Meghan Markle In the Dark Over Selfies

12/7/2017 7:37 AM PST

Meghan Markle said last Friday, "We're not allowed to do selfies" ... saying it's a Royal thing, but we did some checking and looks like she needs to update her Royal etiquette pamphlet.

Turns out her fiance, Prince Harry, is in the selfie game, so we're not sure why Meghan is so camera shy.

Harry's not alone ... Kate Middleton also got in the act, and even the Queen mugged for a shot, but it looks like she's kind of in the dark ... it's a technology thing.

As we reported, Harry is going to teach Meghan the Royal ropes, but scratch the selfie thing from the list of no-nos.

Kim Kardashian's Perfume Line Australians Say Somethin' Stinks

12/6/2017 7:34 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian's Crystal Gardenia perfume line has been a worldwide smash ... problem is, customers in Australia, New Zealand and other countries have plunked down the cash but still don't smell nice.

TMZ has learned the perfume is considered a "flammable/hazardous material" because of its alcohol content and can't be shipped by FedEx and other carriers. Overseas customers have been complaining because there was no warning on Kim's website that there were blackout zones.

Sources connected to Kim tell us she and her people were first told there wouldn't be an issue in shipping the goods overseas. Now that they know, they're in the process of contacting customers one by one who are still empty-handed, promising a full refund. 

At the time of this post Kim's website was not updated with the blackout zones, but we're told that will happen STAT. 

UFC's Sabah Homasi Referee Herb Dean 'F***ed Up' ... He Should Be Punished!!

12/5/2017 2:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Herb Dean's one of the more respected refs in MMA -- but UFC fighter Sabah Homasi says he F'd up BAD during his UFC 218 scrap ... and there should be hell to pay for his actions. 

"He knows he f***ed up," Sabah told TMZ Sports, "His facial expression was like, 'Oh, sh*t.'"

FYI, Homasi and Abdul Razak Alhassan were trading BOMBS in round 1 ... and Herb jumped in when he thought Sabah was out of it.

In reality, he wasn't even hurt ... and The Punisher ain't gonna let Dean off the hook, especially since he potentially screwed him outta some serious cash ... and also blew another call later that night.

"It's just mess-up after mess-up and it shouldn't be like that."

Sabah's gonna have a shot at redemption ... Dana White's already booked the guys for a rematch at UFC 219.

Isaiah Washington on Terry Crews Hollywood's Picking Sides It's a Damn Shame!!!

12/5/2017 7:29 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Isaiah Washington knows what it's like to be shunned by Hollywood ... and that's why he's going to bat for Terry Crews.

We got Isaiah out at LAX Monday and asked him about the backlash his friend, Terry, has gotten after claiming he was sexually assaulted by a powerful Hollywood agent. Russell Simmons even tried silencing him.

Isaiah knows firsthand what it's like to get blackballed -- he went from being a star on the hit TV show "Grey's Anatomy" before he was fired in 2007 for using a homophobic slur in an argument on set with Patrick Dempsey. It subsequently led Isaiah on a years-long drought without a major role on TV.

Isaiah's adamant ... Hollywood's also turning its back on Terry and it's horrible.

Caron Butler LiAngelo Would Be Huge Overseas ... But He Should've Stayed At UCLA

12/5/2017 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Could LiAngelo Ball make an epic return to China?? Caron Butler thinks it would be a huge success for the ex-UCLA player ... but tells TMZ Sports the middle Ball kid's best move was to stay in school.

We broke the story ... LaVar Ball pulled Gelo from the Bruins basketball squad after growing frustrated with his son's indefinite suspension for shoplifting in China.

Butler disagrees with the move, saying academics should come first for Gelo ... but admits there's still opportunities for him to develop into a massive hit on the court.

Tuff Juice thinks LaVar deserves credit for turning Lonzo into the no. 2 overall pick in last year's draft ... and doesn't count out his magic working again.
