Joey Lawrence Bankruptcy Ain't Crampin' My Style

4/24/2018 7:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joey Lawrence officially settled his bankruptcy case, but it's not hurting his game in Hollywood ... at all.

Joey, who got the bankruptcy judge's sign off 2 weeks ago, hit up Craig's restaurant in WeHo Monday night ... an expensive proposition for sure. He left in a brand new Dodge Challenger Hellcat, which retails for around $60k minimum.

It's interesting, considering Joey had a 2014 Bentley, a 2016 BMW i8 and a 2015 Ford Flex repoed.

According to the bankruptcy docs, Joey claimed he had $8k to his name in the bank and $60 in cash.

Impressive Hollywood rebound.

NFL's Cameron Jordan On Kaepernick: 'There's Less Talented QBs Playing'

4/23/2018 2:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

When it comes to Colin Kaepernick, New Orleans Saints star Cameron Jordan says one thing's for sure -- "There's quarterbacks less talented playing [in the NFL]."

Jordan knows a little something on the topic ... he's made the Pro Bowl 3 times making life a living hell for QBs.

So, when we saw him out in Bev Hills (nice Manchester United jersey, BTW) we had to ask about Kaep's current employment status.

It's pretty clear Jordan supports Colin and thinks he belongs in the league.

Meantime, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll recently said the team is still considering signing Kaep -- despite 86ing a workout earlier this month because Colin wouldn't commit to ending his kneeling demonstration.

We'll see ...

Kellyanne Conway Says Melania Is 'Superior' First Lady ... to Michelle Obama

4/23/2018 6:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kellyanne Conway says Melania Trump is a "superior" First Lady to Michelle Obama ... and the country is lucky to have her. 

Yep, that's the word she used. 

We spotted the White House counselor in D.C. and asked about reports that Melania has gotten the cold shoulder from U.S. magazines while Obama appeared on at least a dozen during Barack's 8 years in office. 

"Melania Trump is such a superior and excellent First Lady," Kellyanne told TMZ ... "This country is so lucky to have her."

Conway proceeded to rave about Melania's achievements ... calling her a wonderful role model for women and girls.

"I don't think she needs to be on the cover of a magazine for everyone to see how wonderful her work is." 

Lil Wayne My People Will Shoot Anyone Who Throws Stuff Onstage

4/23/2018 7:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne gave concertgoers an ominous warning ... if you throw stuff onstage you're gonna get shot.

Wayne was performing Saturday night at the Cannabis Cup at NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, and he repeated the mantra we've heard him threaten before when people throw things onstage.

Listen to the clip ... he says, "I got New Orleans people with me and all they know how to throw back is shoot. They'll just shoot."

Apparently the venue had no problem with the threat, because the concert continued without incident.

Tiffany Haddish Rails on TMZ You Left Me Holding the Bag!!!

4/22/2018 11:09 AM PDT

Tiffany Haddish has beef with TMZ.

Our photog spotted Tiffany and her friends Sunday at LAX and apparently watched as she loaded up a slew of bags into an SUV.  Once the bags were in the back, we started asking questions.

Tiffany wasn't playing ball, and she's now furious at the lack of chivalry.  

Truth is ... our camera guy was just doing his job -- which doesn't include loading luggage --  but there's always room to lend a helping hand.

Sorry Tiff ... but just one more thing -- where was the Skycap?

Jermell Charlo Vows to Sue Gym Over Alleged Racial Incident

4/21/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Boxing champ Jermell Charlo is convinced he was banned from working out at a fancy NYC gym because he's black -- and now he's threatening to sue the hell out of them. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Charlo who's still VERY pissed over what went down at Life Time Athletic Fitness in Manhattan on Thursday night ... when he and his crew were told they would NOT be allowed inside. 

Charlo says they showed up to work out with his brother, boxing star Jermall Charlo -- who was already inside the building -- but the gym staff refused to let the crew purchase a day pass. 

Charlo claims his crew was falsely accused of smelling like weed. He believes the real reason they were turned away is because he's "a black man."

Cops were called to the gym but no arrests were made. 

Jermell says he doesn't want an apology -- he wants revenge in court -- because he wants the whole world to see what happened to him. 

As for the gym, a rep denies Charlo was racially profiled but apologized for the "misunderstanding concerning our guest policy."

NY Gym Apologizes to Jermell Charlo Insists They're Not Racist

4/20/2018 2:30 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Jermell Charlo has gotten an apology from the upscale NY gym he was kicked out of on Thursday night -- but the gym insists he was NOT racially profiled. 

As we previously reported, Charlo -- a world champion boxer -- was turned away from Life Time Athletic in Manhattan. He claims front desk told him that his crew smelled like weed and they wouldn't be allowed inside. Charlo denied the weed allegations and said it all came down to race. 

Now, a rep for Life Time tells TMZ Sports, "Upon our immediate review of the matter, this is not an issue of discrimination, as has been alleged."

"In fact, on both April 18 and 19, Life Time extended guest access to Mr. Jermall Charlo and Mr. Jermell Charlo, along with their group. As this matter escalated, staff felt unsafe given an ensuing verbal altercation."

"To be clear, we apologize for what appears to be a misunderstanding concerning our guest policy. Ultimately, we always welcome all individuals and the opportunity to serve them in a safe and respectful manner."

For his part, Jermell is not buying Life Time's explanation and told us,"I'm a black man and they didn't let me in."

Safaree Samuels Run (from) the Jewels ... Post-Armed Robbery

4/19/2018 7:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Safaree Samuels is steering clear of any bling that could possibly get him caught up at gunpoint again -- he'll just stick to some window shopping for now.

We got the 'Love & Hip Hop' star Wednesday leaving the Avianne & Co. jewelry shop in NYC, and asked if he'd picked up any ice. He makes it clear -- his chain game is on hold for now.

Can't blame him ... he was recently robbed at gunpoint in New Jersey, during which the alleged perpetrators jacked upwards of $180k in cash and jewelry. Turns out, the rapper knows one of the dudes arrested for the crime ... from back when he was dating Nicki Minaj.

All things considered ... Safaree might be better served laying low on swag. However, he is still rockin' fur coats -- the one thing the robbers left untouched. He tells us why that might be. 

Stormy Daniels About the Suspect Sketch ... I Might Be Banging That Dude!

4/18/2018 7:00 AM PDT
Breaking News

There's a good reason Stormy Daniels nailed the description of the man she says threatened her way back in 2011 ... 'cause he looks exactly like the guy sleeping next to her!

Look, we're not saying Stormy's husband, Brendon Miller, IS the guy who warned her to back off Trump -- we're just saying she might have gotten a little confused while talking to the sketch artist. 

Fact is, the suspect sketch IS a dead ringer for Brendon ... the porn actor who married Stormy in 2010, mind you. So, he was on the scene when the alleged threat went down in Las Vegas.

Naturally, Stormy's archenemy, Prez Trump ain't buying anything about the sketch. 

Anyway, looks like Tom Brady's got company if cops ever do a lineup. 

'Spy Kids: Mission Critical' Star I Voice a Black Character But It's All Good, I'm Super Urban!

4/18/2018 7:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of the stars of Netflix's new animated 'Spy Kids' show says it's fine that he's a white dude voicing a black character ... in part because he's lived in motels and raps a lot.

We got Travis Turner Tuesday night at Craig's in WeHo and asked if he was worried about backlash from the African-American community over him playing a black character named PSI in "Spy Kids: Mission Critical," which officially debuts this Friday. 

HELL TO THE NO, DAWG ... is pretty much Travis' response here, as he explains how he grew up "urban" by living in motels -- plus he says he makes music with black artists, including Snoop, apparently ... and even sponsors black kids. So it's all good, according to him. 

Travis goes on to blame social media for so much division when it comes to race ... and then gives us a taste of his rapping and voice from the show. Brace yourselves.

Jared Leto Draws Massive Crowd in Paris Mad Louvres for 30STM

4/17/2018 6:53 AM PDT

Jared Leto is now officially a living, breathing snowball effect -- and don't try questioning it ... just watch how fast he can drum up an army of fans by simply walking.

The Oscar winner and frontman for Thirty Seconds to Mars was minding his own business Monday, heading to the Louvre in Paris with bandmate Tomo Milicevic. A few folks recognized them at first and followed along ... then some more ... and even more.

The spontaneous groupie love didn't go unnoticed. Jared stopped mid-route and put on a little show for everyone -- and they seemed pretty ready to jam. Eventually, Jared and his new posse got to their destination ... but were turned away at the last minute.

Rollin' too deep, Jared. Way. Too. Deep.

Stormy Daniels Cohen's Nothing But 'Trump's Fixer' ... And He's Radioactive

4/16/2018 2:46 PM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, walked away from court Monday with a slight W -- but he couldn't escape Stormy Daniels and her team's wrath afterward.

Stormy and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, blasted Cohen after the New York court hearing over the docs the FBI seized from Cohen's office. Stormy said Cohen has acted like he's "above the law," and Avenatti called him "radioactive."

Avenatti says anyone who interacted with Cohen over the last 20 to 30 years should be worried their secrets might be revealed ... referring to Monday's revelation Sean Hannity was Cohen's secret 3rd client.

As for what happened in court, a judge effectively delayed the feds' case against Cohen, saying they had to provide him copies of everything seized in their raid ... in order to sort out what may be privileged or not.

Casey Anthony Solo Drinkin' at Irish Pub ... Chats Up Local Barflies!

4/16/2018 11:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If you've never heard the one about Casey Anthony walking into a bar by herself, buckle up ... 'cause it's a real knee-slapper.

Casey was drinking for one on Sunday at O'Shea's Irish Pub in West Palm Beach, FL right around happy hour time ... and oh, what a happy time she was having with the regulars.

In video obtained by TMZ, you see Casey trying to have a convo with a few dudes there -- we say trying, 'cause it mostly sounded like drunken gibberish ... with an Irish twist. Either way, it's clear Casey enjoyed herself for the hour or so she was there, even solo.

Unclear exactly what she was drinking, but it looks like a light brew to us -- maybe a Stella. 

As we've reported, Casey's been living the good life in the years since she was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony, back in 2011 ... mulling over having more kids, babysitting, and hitting up happy hour in the Sunshine State.

Just another day in the life of World's Best Mom.
