Bill Cosby Leaves Court ... Sentencing Delayed to Tuesday

9/24/2018 12:56 PM PDT
Breaking News

12:35 PM PT -- Cosby's sentencing WILL be pushed back to Tuesday. Before the judge announced the delay, prosecutors requested Cosby get 5 to 10 years in prison -- while the defense asked for house arrest.

Prosecutors are strongly opposed to 81-year-old Cosby being placed under house arrest. They pointed out the fact Cosby's wife threw a birthday party for him back in July, complete with a live 5-piece jazz band that started jamming at 7 AM ... according to neighbors. 

Point being ... where's the punishment in that? 

A defense witness is expected to testify on Tuesday ahead of the judge's decision on his sentencing.

9:50 AM PT -- There's a big debate in court over Cosby being deemed a "violent sexual predator." His attorneys are challenging that label and want a doctor to testify on his behalf, but that might mean delaying sentencing until tomorrow.

The judge isn't happy about it, reportedly, but has yet to rule.

Bill Cosby has just arrived at the Norristown courthouse where he will be sentenced in his sexual assault case ... and he was greeted by angry screams.

Cosby got out of his car as a protester yelled, "We believe the women!" and "Me too!" Still, Cosby was smiling as he walked into the courthouse, and even gave a small wave while one person shouted encouragement to the disgraced comedian. His wife of over 50 years, Camille, was noticeably absent.

Cosby was released on $1 million bail and ordered to remain in his home until sentencing. The 81-year-old is facing a maximum of 10 years in prison for each charge, but could receive nothing more than probation.

As we reported ... Bill was found guilty on all 3 counts of aggravated indecent assault. The jury -- of 7 men and 5 women -- deliberated for a full day before convicting Cosby of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in 2004 at his home.

The trial lasted 13 days and it included arguments and testimony from Constand and 5 other women who claim they were also drugged and sexually assaulted by Cosby, whose June 2017 trial ended in a mistrial because the jury at the time had 2 not guilty holdouts.

TMZ broke the story ... Cosby, who is blind, could get special treatment in prison because of his special needs. He could also get aid from one or more of the Dept. of Corrections' 500 trained peer support specialists, who serve as guides during the tough acclimation to prison life.

But, not everyone wants to see him easily acclimate in prison.

Kanye West & Nick Cannon Beef Squashed ... Over Kim K Sex Talk

9/24/2018 11:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West and Nick Cannon have come to a mutual understanding after going at each other on social media over Kim Kardashian West -- and the consensus is this ... R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Sources tell us that Kanye and Nick squashed their beef this weekend after Nick responded to Ye on Instagram, basically telling him to not try and censor what he can or can't say in interviews. We're told they swapped numbers in their IG DMs ... and eventually, both of them got on the horn to hash things out in a fairly long convo.

They addressed why each of them felt disrespected -- clearly, Kanye was upset by what Nick had said to VladTV regarding Kim's body ... and Nick was pissed that Kanye was coming at him for being candid and truthful.

Long story short, we're told they both agreed to be mindful of one another going forward, and to continue their friendship.

There might even be a potential appearance that comes out of all this too. Sources say Nick and Kanye discussed Ye coming back onto 'Wild 'N Out.'

He's been on several times before, and we're told Ye said he'd try to make something happen soon. 

LeBron James I Didn't Join Lakers To Be Closer to Hollywood

9/24/2018 12:25 PM PDT
Breaking News

LeBron James says his move to join the Lakers was strictly a basketball decision -- and had NOTHING to do with his budding Hollywood career. 

... so, you believe him? 

King James just spoke with reporters at Lakers Media Day where he was decked out in his full #23 Purple and Gold uniform. 

During the Q&A session with reporters, he was asked if he ultimately picked the Lakers over other (better) teams so he could be closer to Warner Bros Studio ... where he has a major development deal. 

Remember, LeBron has movies coming out -- "Space Jam 2" and a new "House Party" flick -- and is working on other TV shows and a "Shut Up and Dribble" documentary narrated by Jemele Hill.

But, Bron says he's a ballplayer first -- and joined the Lakers because he felt it was the right fit for him on the court ... even though they sucked last season. 

Bron was also asked if he'll be able to juggle all of his off-the-court projects and still be successful with the Lakers ... and the answer was 100% confidence. 

Childish Gambino Spotted in Wheelchair ... Prior to Dallas Concert Injury

Exclusive Details

9:59 AM PT -- Glover also performed Friday in Vegas at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. We're told he arrived to his set in a wheelchair and leg brace, removing it before he got onstage. It appears Sunday night's incident was a result of aggravating the preexisting injury. It seems to support what several eyewitnesses told us, which is that he appears to have broken his foot.

6:50 AM PT -- We're told an official at the American Airlines Center said after the show Childish Gambino broke his foot.

Childish Gambino was injured Sunday night in Dallas during a concert.

He was onstage at the American Airlines Center and 30 minutes before the concert was set to end he suddenly walked off stage and didn't return.

It's unclear what happened. One concertgoer tells us Childish Gambino -- aka Donald Glover --  was attempting to do the splits and hurt himself. Several others say he misstepped during a dance move.

He left the stage without performing his songs, "Redbone" and "3005." 

It was part of his This is America Tour. He repeated his promise last night ... that this would be his last concert tour ever.

People in the crowd seemed confused when Childish Gambino left the stage. They began doing the wave, hoping for an encore. The announcer then told the crowd the concert was over.

We do not know the severity of the injury.

Asia Argento Anger's All That Kept Me Alive After Bourdain's Suicide

9/24/2018 9:06 AM PDT

Asia Argento is breaking her silence on Anthony Bourdain's suicide … saying his death left a hole that can’t be filled, and anger was the only thing that kept her from taking her own life.

Tears streamed down Asia's face as she revealed her initial reaction to her boyfriend's death was anger. Anger because she felt he was "abandoning me, my kids."

Asia also told DailyMailTV -- in her first interview since Bourdain’s death -- her anger has now been replaced by an emotional hole that cannot be filled by anything. 

Interestingly, Asia's initial interview -- which airs Monday and Tuesday -- comes just as CNN begins running the final 5 episodes of Anthony's hit show, 'Parts Unknown.' 

What she says is also interesting because she had posted a cryptic message in the hours before Bourdain was found dead in a French hotel room. She was wearing a shirt that said, “F**K EVERYONE” and included the caption ... "You know who you are."

Asia's IG post led to speculation she got into an argument with Bourdain right before his suicide ... and there are rumors something happened that cut him to the core.

What we didn't know then is that Anthony paid $380,000 to Asia’s sexual assault accuser, Jimmy Bennett. One theory is that payment exacerbated an argument with Asia.

Breaking News

Amber Guyger -- the Dallas police officer arrested for manslaughter after shooting and killing her neighbor in his apartment -- has been fired.

Guyger fatally shot Botham Jean earlier this month in his residence. In addition to being charged with manslaughter, the shooting triggered an internal affairs investigation. Dallas PD says they determined Guyger engaged in "adverse conduct" -- and she was officially fired Monday morning.

After her arrest, she told investigators she had come home at the end of her shift on September 6, and entered what she believed was her apartment. Guyger claims she walked inside, saw someone she thought was a burglar, drew her gun and opened fire.

Guyger was on the force since 2013. She can still appeal her firing.

Nikki Bella I Don't Talk To John Cena Anymore ... 'I'm Doing Me'

9/24/2018 9:15 AM PDT
Breaking News

How done are John Cena and Nikki Bella??

"We don't [talk anymore]," Nikki says.

Yeah, that's done.

"He's doing him and I'm doing me," Nikki told ET at the iHeart Music Festival over the weekend. 

Remember, John proposed to Nikki at WrestleMania 33 back in 2017 after years of dating -- but Nikki called it off in April. Cena tried like hell to get her back -- even making public pleas on national television -- but he couldn't pull off the comeback. 

Now ... Nikki says she's 100% single -- but isn't ready for another man yet.

"I am single, but I'm not ready for mingling yet," Nikki said. "You know? I don't know."

Nikki says she's focusing on finding personal happiness before she jumps back in the dating pool ... and her sister is all for it.

"You gotta find yourself first," Brie Bella said. 

One of the sticking points with Cena is the fact Nikki wanted kids -- and he didn't

After she dumped him, John changed his tune and said he'd be open to it now ... but Nikki wasn't buyin' it.

Chicks. DUI. Chicks. Injuries. Chicks. Donald Trump. Chicks. Chicks. Chicks.

Kim Kardashian OMG, Tyga! So Great to See You!!! What Nasty Breakup?

9/24/2018 6:59 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner's fam has zero beef with her ex-bf, Tyga ... or so it seems after he had a pretty touchy-feely reunion with Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner.

The chance encounter went down Sunday night at Beyoncé and Jay-Z's concert at the Rose Bowl. Kim looked surprised, but happy to see Tyga. Ditto for Kylie's mom.

The happy moment is a little surprising because it's not like Kylie and Tyga had a smooth split. After several breakups and makeups, they parted ways for the final time about 18 months ago. A couple months later she got with Travis Scott and got pregnant ... while Tyga banged Kylie look-alikes.

We don't know if Kylie'd be smiling this much if she were there, but her mom and sis definitely chose peace and love or piss and vinegar -- at least to his face.

Beyoncé really does have magical powers.

"Best thing he did all year!" one player yells after Shohei wraps up.

The impromptu concert appears to be part of a season-ending hazing for L.A. rookies -- and yeah, dudes that throw 100 MPH AND hit bombs still gotta participate.

By the way ... Shohei's expected to be sidelined from pitching until 2020 because of an elbow injury -- soooo, more time for singing lessons???

Meantime, here's the full Japanese version of the song. Enjoy!

Exclusive Details

9:20 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ one of the pyrotechnics fell over when the firework unit malfunctioned, causing a spark to shoot out.

Two people in the crowd suffered minor injuries -- one person hit in the stomach and the other in the eye. They were both treated on scene.

ODESZA's set at Life is Beautiful Music Festival came to a terrifying end when a rogue firework shot off straight into the crowd.

The group was finishing its set Sunday night at the Las Vegas event with a massive firework display when something clearly went wrong, and one of the explosions went off in the crowd. It's unclear how many people were injured from the blast.

One member of the audience wrote of the mishap, "Literally saw someone get hit by an explosive firework RIGHT next to us during the ODESZA set and it was SOO traumatic. Wtf."

ODESZA was among one of the last acts of the weekend for the annual music festival. Other performers included The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Arcade Fire and Florence + The Machine.

We've reached out to a rep for ODESZA ... so far, no word back.
