LeBron James Racists Don't Care About My Money 'N-Word' Graffiti Was Proof

2/15/2018 12:22 PM PST

LeBron James is letting the world know the disgusting, racist words spray painted on his home in 2017 were no fluke ... 'cause despite all his money and fame, he's still a target for racists.

We broke the story ... LeBron's old Brentwood home (he's since bought a new place in the neighborhood) was defaced back in 2017, with someone tagging the home with the n-word while the family was away.

LBJ took a ride with Kevin Durant & Cari Champion for Champion's show, "Rolling With The Champion," and talked about the incident, saying it was a reminder his status doesn't insulate him from racists.

"I'm a black man with a bunch of money, and having a crib in Brentwood and having the word n***** spray painted over my gate, that lets you know I ain't too far removed."

You can hear the sincerity in LeBron's voice, and he spoke at length about the fact that he still feels like bigoted scumbags don't care about what you have, just what color you are.

"They will always try to figure out a way to let you know you're still beneath them."

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle 'Royal Love Story' Stars Go to Work ... Nailed It?

2/14/2018 4:04 PM PST

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have touched down in Canada to start production on a new Lifetime movie about their love affair -- or at least the actors playing them have.

The actors playing the couple in "Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story" were spotted Wednesday in downtown Vancouver, where they're shooting the film -- and ya gotta compare 'em to the real deal.

Parisa Fitz-Henley seems to be getting a green light on social media for her resemblance to Meghan. Murray Fraser, on the other hand, might not be getting double takes for the right reason. Good looking guy and all, but he's no Prince of Wales.

The movie's about the story of how Harry and Meghan fell for each other ... way back in 2016. 'Memba that?

'American Horror Story' Video Shows Fans Out of Control ... Murder House Owners Say

2/14/2018 1:47 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The current owners of the Murder House from "American Horror Story" say these videos and photos of fans swarming around their home show exactly why they're suing the previous owner.

The videos are pretty insane -- some fans climbed into a dumpster as it was raised by a garbage truck ... just to get a peek over the fence! Another fan seemed to nap in the front yard, while another chilled right on the porch.

As we reported, Ernst Von Schwarz and Angela Oakenfold are suing the home's previous owner, claiming they were never told the house was on 'AHS,' and has become a "macabre tourist attraction." Even when fans aren't trespassing, they're lined up by the dozens outside the chain link fence. 

Schwarz and Oakenfold -- who paid $3.2 million for the mansion in 2014 -- were on "TMZ Live" Wednesday. They wanted to make it clear they don't hate 'AHS' fans, but some go too far, and make them feel unsafe at home.

Ahmad Rashad Murders O.J.'s Hollywood Comeback

2/14/2018 11:33 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

One of O.J. Simpson's former BFFs is giving his alleged big-screen return 2 thumbs down -- telling TMZ Sports there ain't a chance Juice gets loose in Hollywood again.

We got Ahmad Rashad at LAX on Tuesday ... and it was pretty clear from the jump that he didn't wanna talk O.J. (who, fun fact, was in his wedding party, along with Bill Cosby). 

But when we asked if O.J.'s rumored cameo in a Sacha Baron Cohen movie could be the start of an acting resurgence -- the Vikings legend straight-up laughed off the possibility.

Ahmad also told us there's no way in hell he'd watch Sacha's flick if O.J.'s in it (shocker).

FYI, Simpson's Hollywood credits include blockbusters like "Roots" and "The Naked Gun" trilogy.

LaVar Ball Butchers Nas Song ... On 'Lip Sync Battle'

2/14/2018 8:35 AM PST
Breaking News

Oh man ... this is painful. 

LaVar Ball took the mic on "Lip Sync Battle" and decided to do his biggest, ballerest version of the Nas classic, "Hate Me Now" ... and yeah, everyone hates him now.

Including his son, Lonzo Ball.

The Balls competed against each other on the show (airs Thursday) -- Lonzo did "Band and Boujee" by Migos, accompanied by a bunch of twerking girl dancers.

When LaVar got his shot, he tried really hard -- but it became very obvious he didn't really know the words and just sorta jumped around and mouthed a bunch of incorrect lyrics.

Afterward, Lonzo told his dad ... "If I was Nas I'd be mad he put on a performance like that on my song. I'd be mad."

Guessing this ain't gonna help the beef between 'Zo and the NY rap star.

Shaun White Sorry For Sexual Harassment Case Comments

2/14/2018 7:02 AM PST
Breaking News

Shaun White says he's "truly sorry" for referring to his sexual harassment case as "gossip" -- saying, "It was a poor choice of words to describe such a sensitive subject in the world today."

The snowboarding legend appeared on the "Today" show early Wednesday to address the comments he made during Tuesday night's post-Olympic media conference ... where he was asked about the graphic sexual harassment suit filed against him in 2016. 

TMZ Sports broke the story back in August 2016 ... White was sued by his female bandmember, Lena Zawaideh, who claimed White would text her penis pics, sex videos involving fecal matter and forced her to style her hair in a way that appeased him during her 7-year run with the group.

White denied the allegations -- but ultimately settled the case with Zawaideh in May 2017, the terms of which were not disclosed. 

But Tuesday night in South Korea -- right after White won gold in the men's halfpipe -- he was asked by an ABC reporter to address the allegations. White said he was there to talk about the Olympics, not "gossip."

A second reporter wanted to ask follow-up questions about the case, but was shut down by the moderator.

There didn't seem to be a lot of mainstream media interest in the case back in 2016 and 2017 -- interesting why not.

Donald Trump Attorney Michael Cohen I Personally Paid Stormy Daniels $130k

2/14/2018 6:03 AM PST

Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, says he paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130k out of his own pocket and was not reimbursed.

The disclosure comes weeks after reports surfaced that Trump hooked up with Daniels in 2006, a year after he married Melania ... something Trump's people deny. The payment was made in 2016, during the campaign.

Cohen says, "Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford [Stormy's real name], and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly."  

Cohen did not say if Trump was aware of the payment.

And Cohen says he told the Federal Election Commission the same thing after a complaint was lodged that campaign money was used as hush money.  

Logan Paul Video with a 'Real Albino Woman' Coming to a Vlog Near You

2/14/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Logan Paul's gone back to the drawing board after more hiccups in the vlogging world -- and now he thinks an albino person's gonna solve his problems ... TMZ has learned.

The troubled YouTube star held a last-minute casting call Tuesday in search of a "Real Albino Woman" to be featured in a music video he was set to shoot the exact same day. 

There's not a whole lot to go off of here, but we do know the project is a "comedy music video" and that he was looking to cast either a black or white albino woman between 21-40 years old. The gig apparently didn't pay too much either -- just $100 for half a day.

Here's the thing ... the project seems destined for more controversy from our POV, at least based on what we can see. Getting skin color involved in a "comedy" video from Logan, of all people, doesn't necessarily seem like a recipe for success.

With the backlash from his taser rat video recently -- not to mention his suicide forest disaster -- his YouTube money and projects have been stalled. Not sure if this will help.

Kate Upton Wave Goodbye ... I'm Going Down!!!

2/13/2018 3:11 PM PST

Kate Upton really coulda used a hand -- hers were busy covering her naked boobs when a powerful wave crashed her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photo shoot, which took place last October.

The gorgeous model was in Aruba ... posing topless, mind you, and standing on top of a massive rock. The photographer and crew were all set to get the perfect shot, but mother nature had other ideas.

The video shows the sheer panic on set once they saw the incoming wave -- a crew member raced to rescue Kate, with shoes in hand, but couldn't get a good grip and it was too late.

Model go boom, and sheer hysteria broke out. Ya gotta see the reaction -- it's Hindenburg-esque ... for the modeling world, anyway.

Olympic Luger Chris Mazdzer No Worries in S. Korea ... Just 'Don't Be Stupid' Like Lochte

2/13/2018 1:15 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

America's Olympic Luger Chris Mazdzer says he isn't having any issues in or out of the Olympic village in PyeongChang 'cause Ryan Lochte taught him exactly what NOT to do. 

Chris just made history as the first American man to medal in singles luge, and he told us things are going smoothly for U.S. Olympians in S. Korea. A much different story from the disaster Lochte created during the Rio games 2 years ago. 

You'll recall ... Lochte was at the center of an international scandal when he was charged with filing a false police report about being robbed at a gas station. He was eventually cleared, but not without a lot of hoopla and intrigue.

Chris made it clear to us ... he's still pissed about the swimmer's antics, but added it's pretty easy to avoid a repeat of any Lochte-like shame at the Winter Olympics. 

Tyrese Not Down with Surprises ... SHOVES Hug-Seeking Fan!!

2/13/2018 2:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Warning to Tyrese's fans -- his reflexes are top-notch, so jumping onstage to hug him when he's not looking is a bad idea.

This video shows the singer closing his recent Valentine's Love Jam set in Detroit, and as he wiped off his face with a towel, an overzealous female fan lunged at him.

Tyrese didn't see her until she was right up in his grill, so he unloaded a stiff-arm shove -- totally in self-defense -- until security could remove her. 

He seemed apologetic once he realized the situation -- but ya can't blame him for protecting himself. 

Miley Cyrus Cops Alerted to Obsessed Fan ... Made Creepy Posts, Pilgrimage to L.A.

2/13/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Miley Cyrus has an obsessed fan who traveled cross-country -- without invitation -- to see her in person, and left some bizarre Facebook posts that forced cops to take him into custody ... TMZ has learned.

The guy is from the Milwaukee area, and a couple of weeks ago he wrote several posts referencing taking a trip to see Miley. He claims he knows her address, how best to enter her home and says they'll "finally get together."

There's also a creepy thank you to Miley for "getting rid of Liam" ... and some rambling commentary about a "horrific act" he's going to pull off that will be on the news. The posts caught the attention of a concerned citizen, who alerted Milwaukee police.

According to law enforcement sources ... Milwaukee PD contacted LAPD and the L.A. Sheriff's Department to give them a heads up, and good thing they did.  We're told the guy actually did make his way to Los Angeles -- cops located him on Monday, interviewed him and took him in for psychological evaluation. They can hold him for up to 72 hours.

It's unclear if Miley was aware of the apparent danger. We've reached out to her legal team.  

James Franco Mere Allegations Won't Stop Me ... I'm Back on 'The Deuce'!

2/13/2018 6:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

James Franco had no comment on President Trump's tweet about "mere allegations" ruining people's lives without due process -- which is fine, 'cause HBO did all the talking.

We got James Monday touching down at LAX, where he was covered up and in a hurry to get to his car. We asked if he agreed with the Trump attack on the #MeToo movement.

He doesn't say much here -- but, frankly, he didn't really need to. Trump's sentiment is not totally accurate. Fact is ... Franco is set to return to his starring role on Season 2 of HBO's hit show, "The Deuce" ... despite allegations of sexual misconduct.

He's been laying relatively low ever since being snubbed by the Oscars ... aside from some casual surfing he's been making part of his regular routine.

After relanding his major role on a critically acclaimed show, James might as well have just said ... what ruined life?
