Taylor Swift Warned By Cops Beware of Gun-Seeking 'Boyfriend'

1/14/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift could have another obsessed fan on her hands -- because a 58-year-old man is claiming he's her boyfriend and needs a gun to protect her ... this according to cops.

Law enforcement sources in New Hampshire tell TMZ ... a guy was at the station for voluntary questioning on an unrelated case when he bragged he was the singer's BF. What's more ... cops say he went as far as showing them texts with a "Taylor Swift" as the recipient.

We're told cops got suspicious when he started asking how many states he can drive through with a concealed carry weapons permit. He also told them he wanted a gun to protect Taylor in Africa. It's unclear why he thinks Taylor will be in Africa.

As for why cops didn't detain him right then and there ... they say someone simply saying they want a gun to protect someone is not a crime.

That said ... cops tell us they're trying to contact Taylor's team to warn her.

Taylor's no stranger to obsessed fans. Another random dude showed up to her Rhode Island steps, back in July, trying to marry her. We've reached out to Taylor's team, so far no word back.

Steve-O I'm Rooting for Bam ... But Rehab's Just a Start!!!

1/14/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Steve-O's glad his old friend Bam Margera has checked into rehab, but as an expert on the topic ... he knows Bam's got a long way to go in beating his addiction.

We got a studious-looking Steve-O out grocery shopping in L.A.'s Franklin Village this week and asked him about his former "Jackass" co-star's recent struggles with alcoholism ... and he offered some rather blunt and earnest advice.

The gist -- Bam's got to surrender ... and stick to the steps of sobriety.

Steve-O says he hasn't spoken with Bam in a few months -- so definitely not since his DUI arrest -- but it's clear he's concerned and wishing him the best.

As we reported ... Bam agreed to go to a California rehab facility Friday, and we're told he's committed to getting control of his life for his family.

Steve-O's been sober for nearly a decade after getting clean in 2008 ... so listen up, Bam.

Lil Pump Lights Up His Crew $350k in Chains

1/14/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump's spreading his newfound wealth around ... hooking up members of his team with some fresh bling for the new year.

The 17-year-old rapper ordered 8 iced-out chains that say "Tha Lights Global" -- the name of his label -- with pendants in all different sizes ... from 10 to 30 carats. We're told they cost $350,000 overall.

Pump hit up Elliot Avianne of Avianne & Co Jewelers in NYC 2 months ago to have the chains made, but he tells us the "Gucci Gang" rapper still hasn't come to pick them up. It's also unclear who gets what piece.

As we reported last month ... Lil Pump's contract with Warner Bros. had him on a path to millionaire status soon, but he's reportedly had that contract voided and now is entertaining other offers.

Here's what happened ... a Canadian youth hoops team was leaving the Pistons vs. Rockets game this past weekend when they spotted the rocker inside his Made in Detroit restaurant.

The American Bad Ass noticed the team gawking through the window, so he invited the whole group in and ordered 15 hot cocoas on the house!!

The team's coach thanked the Detroit native for the gesture ... who then told him to pay it forward.

Hawaii's Missile Alert Human Error During Test Run Caused False Alarm

1/13/2018 3:29 PM PST
Breaking News

The morning panic caused in Hawaii when an emergency alert about an incoming ballistic missile was sent to residents' cellphones was the result of a wrong button being pushed ... according to the administrator of the state's emergency management team.

Vern Miyagi just revealed the chain of events that led to the false alarm at 8:07 AM in Hawaii, telling people to seek immediate shelter and "This is not a drill."

Miyagi says there was an employee shift change on his team, and during this time a series of tests were run on the emergency alert system ... but a button was accidentally pressed that triggered the real deal.

He says they were notified of the mistake shortly after and cancelled further messages from going out, but it took several minutes for a message to be sent notifying residents of the error. Miyagi apologized for the confusion and vowed to take steps to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Earlier Saturday, Hawaii Governor David Ige confirmed their was never an actual missile threat and the false alarm was not the work of hackers or a foreign government. He also apologized.

As we reported ... the emergency warning was dispatched to phones Saturday morning, causing mass chaos and fear during these tense times with North Korea.

Comedian Michael Blackson Heightens Beef with Kevin Hart With More Short Jokes

1/13/2018 12:57 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Blackson's taking his feud with Kevin Hart to another level ... by doubling down on jokes about Kevin's height and how he cheated on his pregnant wife.

The comedian skewered Hart during a portion of his stand-up set at The Wilbur Theatre in Boston Friday night, calling him a "midget with a regular ni**a's head" and a "punk bitch" ... among other insults.

Blackson also rips Kevin for essentially snitching on himself during his whole sex tape/extortion scandal.

Here's the backstory -- Blackson and Hart used to be friends, but Kevin took issue with Michael using his cheating fiasco as fodder for his comedy ... so he called him out during a 'Breakfast Club' interview by referring to Mike as "the Instagram model that just shows her ass and is looking for love."

Blackson took issue with that and vowed to keep blasting Hart, saying ... "when I'm done with you u will commit suicide by jumping off the curb you short f*ck."

Damn. It's on.

Breaking News

Mark Wahlberg's giving away the $1.5 million he made for his reshoots on "All the Money in the World" ... after the outcry that he made more than Michelle Williams.

Mark's making a donation to Time's Up, and his agency WME -- which also represents Williams -- is donating $500,000 as well. Wahlberg says, "I 100 percent support the fight for fair pay and I'm donating the $1.5 million to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams' name."

As we reported ... when producers asked Williams to do reshoots for the movie she quickly agreed, but Wahlberg demanded to be paid and his rep said, "He doesn't work for free." However, sources familiar with the actors' contracts told us Michelle's required her to do reshoots as part of her salary ... and Mark's didn't.  

Regardless, Wahlberg and his agency are now donating the $2 mil.
