Rae Sremmurd Bum-Rushed Onstage ... Fan Tackled Hard!!!

7/16/2018 7:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rae Sremmurd didn't see it coming -- getting bum-rushed onstage by a dude who also never saw the HARD TACKLE that came after his very poor decision.

The incident went down Saturday night at the Ottawa Bluesfest music festival in Canada as the group was in the middle of performing its hit song, "Guatemala." You can see a line of security in front of the stage, but somehow this guy managed to elude them all and make his way onstage.

Almost right away you know it's a bad idea. The crasher at first tries getting a selfie ... but his ass gets rejected, and then comes the blindside tackle. The guy's subdued and the concert seems to go on without a hitch.

When will crashers learn ... it never ends well. Never.

Barack Obama We Are Family at Kenya Event ... Supports Sister's Charity

7/16/2018 7:01 AM PDT

Former Prez Barack Obama got in some QT with his Kenyan fam, and showed some love for a new sports training center at the same time.

Obama's half-sister Dr. Auma Obama's charitable organization built the center, and Barack showed up Sunday for the grand opening. This was his first visit to Kenya -- his father's native land -- since leaving the White House. He was last there in 2015.

Barack and the good Doc greeted children at the center, and he also met with Kenya's Prez.

The Obamas are all over the globe. He and Michelle can compare notes this week: who did the weekend better?

G-Eazy Dodges Questions About Halsey Breakup

7/16/2018 7:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

G-Eazy is taking the silent route when it comes to his failed relationship with singer Halsey.

We got Gerald at LAX Sunday where he looked like he was in a chipper mood until our camera guy started asking about his ex.

The two broke up abruptly a couple of weeks ago after dating for almost a year. Halsey recently hinted he cheated on her over Twitter.

G-Eazy was reportedly spotted leaving Warwick in L.A. Saturday night with Demi Lovato -- but we've learned the two were not together.

Looks like he's not a kiss and tell guy.

Paris Hilton Just Like Kylie ... I'm Self-Made!!!

7/16/2018 6:32 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton -- whose great-grandfather started the globally-recognized Hilton hotels -- says she's also self-made.

We got Paris arriving at LAX over the weekend and wanted to get her take on Kylie Jenner after Forbes said she's set to become America's youngest self-made BILLIONAIRE. Paris paid the young entrepreneur her respects.

But our guy wanted to know -- is Paris also self-made? Sure, her name carries a ton of weight in the business world, but Paris also parlayed that into licensing her name to perfumes and a fashion line. Not to mention getting paid for appearances.

Robert Griffin III Wife Training For 2020 Olympics ... She's Faster Than Me!

7/16/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Robert Griffin III says his wife wears the (track) pants in their relationship ... 'cause Grete Šadeiko is not only making a run at the 2020 Olympics -- she blows him away in races!!

We got the adorable couple -- and their cute 1-year-old baby, Gloria -- out in Bev Hills when RGIII made the revelation to TMZ Sports.

"Track is her realm," he says. "She owns the track."

Big-time praise for sure ... considering the NFL star once ran a 4.38 40-yard dash and did do some track events at Baylor.

But Grete's legit on the turf ... she crushed the heptathlon at Florida State -- once running 13.92 in the 100-meter hurdles -- and is making a serious run to compete for Estonia in the 2020 Games.

As for the real takeaway from all this ... watch out for baby Gloria in about 17 years!!

CBS Fires Off Warning to 'Survivor' Star!! But, a Really Nice Warning

7/16/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

CBS didn't unleash the big legal guns after 'Survivor' star Jonny Fairplay allegedly jacked its show's logo ... but the network does wanna have a chat with the former show villain.

TMZ's obtained a legal letter CBS fired off to Jonny warning him about using the "Survivor" logo for his podcast, formerly known as "Survival of the Fairest" ... which has since been renamed 'Survivor NSFW.'

CBS says it owns the logo, but what's interesting is the friendly language with which it approaches Jonny about using its logo.

Most warning shots are more threatening ... some examples here, here and here. But, not with Jonny.

In fact, CBS goes out of its way to play nice ... even saying they "appreciate interest in the Series, including a podcast about the Series."

But it's not all sweet talk. According to the letter, the studio has also noticed the season 7 third place finisher is selling apparel with the show's logo. CBS is worried Jonny's logo will cause fans to think the network endorses the podcast.

CBS ends the letter with, "We would like to set up a time to discuss the above with you. Please give me a call or send me an email with your availability."

As for Jonny, he tells TMZ in part ... "The fact that they are threatened and looking to punish those who are adding value to their content shows how behind the times CBS is. Targeting ME, and ME only considering my legacy, value, and positive life change is frankly illogical."

Aaron Sorkin Babe Ruth Asterisk? 'Only Faced White Pitchers'

7/16/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here's some real talk featuring Hollywood super heavyweight Aaron Sorkin ... a die-hard Yankee fan who's doing the unthinkable ... questioning the legitimacy of the career of BABE RUTH.

Yeah, he did it.

We got Sorkin out at Craig's and asked him if the current Yankees home run hitting tear should come with an asterisk ... because the new Yankee stadium has short fences in places.

That's when it happened.

"If there's no asterisk next to Babe Ruth for only facing white pitchers, then there can't be any asterisk on the Yankees."

It's a point that's been raised before, basically stating that segregation meant that Babe Ruth never faced the VERY best competition, because some of that competition was black.

Hope Sorkin's meal was as hot as that take.

Guess Who This Sassy Girl Turned Into!

George Clooney Limping, But Walking Unaided Days After Scooter Crash

7/15/2018 3:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

George Clooney's one tough SOB -- he's continuing to walk on his own just days after being released from the hospital due to a nasty crash ... although he's clearly hurting.

GC slowly made his way off his private jet Sunday after it touched down in Rome, where he's reportedly set to resume filming for his new Hulu series "Catch-22." He's got a hell of a limp going, but the actor's fighting through the pain to get to where he's gotta be.

We broke the story ... George was doing 60 mph at the moment of impact last week, when his scooter struck a sedan in Sardinia. He was thrown 20 feet into the air, but was back on his feet just a couple days later. 

Surveillance footage of the accident shows that the wreck was as bad as it sounds, leaving the actor writhing on the ground in the middle of traffic.

Here's to a speedy recovery, Georgie boy. Get well soon. 

Hulk Hogan Back in WWE's HOF 3 Years After N-Word Controversy

7/15/2018 1:56 PM PDT
Breaking News

Hulk Hogan is back in the WWE's good graces three years after he was caught on tape using the n-word ... reclaiming his place in the wrestling organization's Hall of Fame.

WWE issued a statement Sunday, saying that after a 3-year suspension ... Hulk was being reinstated in their HOF. They go on to say that this second chance follows multiple apologies and volunteer work from Hulk ... this in the wake of his angry rant using the n-word, which was caught on his sex tape and leaked in 2015.

We broke the story ... Hulk has been in talks with WWE honchos to be brought back into the fold, though the wrestling legend wanted it done the right way. 

Like the league notes, Hulk has, in fact, apologized many times over insisting the vile language does not reflect who he is as a person. He even referenced the scandal while being inducted into the Boys & Girls Club Hall of Fame earlier this year. 

WWE mentioned the recent induction in their press release, saying he is helping young people learn from his mistake. 

Welcome home, Hogan. 

Michelle & Sasha Obama La Première Famille Crash Bey and Jay's Paris Concert

7/15/2018 1:27 PM PDT

Beyonce and Jay-Z's close relationship with the Obamas is still going strong, now in full flex across the pond ... with Michelle and Sasha crashing the couple's concert in France.

The former First Lady and kid were spotted in the stands Sunday at the Stade de France stadium, where Bey and Jay are performing as part of their "On the Run II" tour. 

Michelle even went beyond the front row barricades, standing alongside Beyonce's mom, Tina Knowles ... and getting her groove on as Jay rapped onstage. As mothers to very important people ... they looked like quite the duo shoulder-to-shoulder.

No sign of Barack or Malia here, but the Obama family was definitely well represented. It's no surprise they're there either -- Michelle and her 2 daughters did the same back in 2014, when B&J were performing in Chicago. 

Seems like they like to catch 'em when they can. Who wouldn't? 

Conor McGregor Catches World Cup Final With Vladimir Putin

7/15/2018 12:32 PM PDT

Conor McGregor got to sit in on the World Cup final in person this weekend, showing up as a guest of none other than Vladimir Putin.

The UFC star posted a photo of himself Sunday alongside Russia's president, posing like a tough guy with someone he calls "one of the greatest leaders of our time." 

Conor's caption read ... "Today I was invited to the World Cup final as a guest of Russian President Vladimir Putin. This man is one of the greatest leaders of our time and I was honored to attend such a landmark event alongside him. Today was an honor for me Mr. Putin. Thank you and congratulations on an amazing World Cup."

He ended with "Go Russia" ... written in Russian. Hopefully they're both aware Russia got knocked out in the quarter finals, but that's beside the point. What's important (and weird) is that Conor is super chummy with Putin ... who's known as kind of a bad dude, depending on who you talk to. 

All we can say ... it's an interesting way to ring in the big baby news from this weekend. Word to your Mother, Russia ...we guess. 

Taylor Swift What Goes Up Must Come Down ... And Then Go Across, Right?

7/15/2018 11:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift opened up to her fans during a concert this weekend, but not in her lyrics ... more like her stream of consciousness during a brief stage malfunction.

The "Delicate" singer was doing a show Saturday night at Philly's Lincoln Financial Field, when she experienced some technical difficulties with her suspended basket mid-air.

And forget trying to cover it up ... Taylor let the audience know things were getting screwed up in real time. Even as the stage crew tried figuring out what was wrong, she filled folks in every step of the way. Talk about a no-filter heart-to-heart with your base. 

Tay eventually got into another cage, which took her across the stadium as originally planned -- but not before killing time with a little a cappella crooning. The crowd ate it up, obviously.

Lesson learned ... Taylor Swift is as honest as they come. Even in the worst of times.
