Pharrell Williams My Disneyland Mask is Goofy

8/16/2017 7:00 AM PDT

Even with a mask ... Pharrell Williams ain't hard to pick out of a crowd at Disneyland. 

Pharrell tried going incognito Monday by pulling a Michael Jackson at the theme park. If you recall, the King of Pop always wore one in public with limited success.

P's is definitely fashion forward if not useful. His cover was compromised by the security guards who flanked him as he strolled the park.

The 'Voice' coach hit up the rides with his wife, Helen Lasichanh, their kid, Rocket, and some friends. He removed the mask on the Radiator Springs Racers ride at Disney California Adventure.

They don't call it the Happiest Place on Earth for nothin'.

Tina Knowles Beyonce Would Be the Perfect Rockets Owner!

8/16/2017 6:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce's mom tells TMZ Sports it would be "really great" if her daughter became the next owner of the Houston Rockets -- saying she's got the Houston connection that fans would love! 

After current Rockets owner Leslie Alexander announced he was selling the team last month, Beyonce's name showed up in reports as a very interested buyer. 

So, when we saw Tina Knowles leaving Mastro's Steakhouse in Bev Hills on Tuesday, we had to ask ... what's up?!

Tina wasn't spilling the tea on B's business plans -- but did explain why she thinks the Rockets would be the perfect fit for her daughter. 

But if it happens, will mom attend every game? Don't plan on it ... 

'RHOA' Star Peter Thomas Spin-Off Show in the Works with Bravo

8/16/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Peter Thomas -- the guy who brought a knife to a ... well ... fight -- could be getting his own spin-off show after splitting from Cynthia Bailey on 'RHOA.'

Production sources tell us Peter and Bravo started filming a pilot focusing on his club in Charlotte, NC, Club One -- think "Vanderpump Rules."

We're told the show will cover Peter's life owning and managing the club in the aftermath of his breakup with Cynthia last year on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta.' We're told it's highly unlikely Cynthia will come on as a guest.

You'll recall ... Peter pulled a box cutter on Kenya Moore's ex, Matt Jordan, in March during a brawl the 2 had in the middle of a radio interview. At the time, he claimed self-defense.

We're told the network is happy with what it's seeing and it's looking like the show will make air.

Hey ... why wouldn't it? The drama's so thick, you could cut it with a ... forget it.

Floyd Mayweather No Sex Before McGregor Fight

8/16/2017 5:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather says he's putting business before pleasure -- and won't have sex before he fights Conor McGregor.

It's an old superstition that's been around the boxing game for years. You remember Mick from the 'Rocky' movies famously said, "Women weaken legs."

Floyd seems to agree. Conor McGregor has a different strategy.

"That is most certainly a superstition that I do not abide by," Conor told Conan O'Brien back in 2015 ... "I definitely have as much sex as possible."

So, to bang or not to bang? That is the question ...

Lexy Panterra I Didn't Betray Bella Thorne By Hooking Up with Gregg

8/16/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Twerk Queen Lexy Panterra didn't break girl code by hooking up with Bella Thorne's ex, Gregg Sulkin, because the two gals are just "Hollywood kiss kiss" friends.

We broke the story ... Gregg and Lexy have started dating and were spotted out together for the first time in public doing a little shopping on Monday.

Bella and Lexy co-starred in the Tyler Perry flick, "Boo! A Madea Halloween," only a year ago ... when Bella was still dating Gregg.

But Lexy's peeps tell us Lexy and Bella never had a meaningful friendship. They haven't even talked over the summer. One source called them "Hollywood friends."

There's also this ... Bella's moved on and is on and off with Scott DisickBlackbear and other guys so Gregg's in her rearview.


DMX I Need Out of House Arrest To Feed My Kids!!!

8/16/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DMX is losing his mind under house confinement -- because he's already asking a judge to let him out so he can support his fam.

X's lawyer, Murray Richman, fired off a letter to a NY federal judge Monday asking that his client be allowed to travel to Atlanta, Vegas, Philly, and L.A. for some August/Sept. gigs ... the most immediate being Thursday in ATL.

The judge shot down the ATL request because it came in too late. The judge made it clear ... all requests to leave the house must be submitted at least a week in advance.

As for the other requests ... X's probation officers want the judge to turn thumbs-down, because they think it'll interfere with his drug program. Murray tells TMZ ... he's negotiating to get X out for some of the upcoming dates, saying the guy's got 15 kids to feed and needs to make a living.

You'll recall ... X violated bail conditions in his tax evasion case by skipping town without a heads-up to the court ... and later failing drug tests. That's why he's now on house arrest

It seems when it comes to X, home is NOT where the heart is.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Cast Turns on Corinne, Defends DeMario ... Post-Hookup

8/15/2017 6:48 PM PDT

The remaining cast of "Bachelor in Paradise" made it clear whose side they're on after the hookup between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson that shut down production ... and it ain't really hers. 

Chris Harrison had a sit-down with the rest of the cast members on part 2 of the "BiP" premiere Tuesday night, and after a lot of beating around the bush, Taylor Nolan finally spat it out ... everyone there is responsible for themselves and how much they drink. 

Most of 'em seemed to piggy-back on the sentiment, which was clearly aimed at Corinne -- who, as we reported, blacked out in a hookup with DeMario and felt she lost the ability to consent. She later went on to call herself a victim in the ordeal. 

The cast also made it clear that the backlash DeMario caught during the controversy was in part due to him being a black man ... and Corinne being a white woman. 

While some cast members did defend Corinne for the slut shaming she experienced, the bigger takeaway here from these folks is ... poor DeMario. 

Charlottesville Car Attack Driver and Rally Organizers Sued By Victims for $3 Mil

8/15/2017 3:12 PM PDT

James Alex Fields Jr.'s victims are striking back with a huge lawsuit ... and they're going after more white nationalists they believe were responsible for the Charlottesville carnage.

Tadrint and Micah Washington have filed suit against Fields, as well as many organizers of the alt-right rally in Charlottesville Saturday -- including David Duke, Richard Spencer and Jason Kessler. According to the docs ... the Washingtons were in the car into which Fields slammed, causing a violent chain reaction that resulted in the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer, injuring 19 others.

Tadrint and Micah claim they were not counterprotesters or involved in any events related to the rally, but were simply trying to drive home and were waiting for pedestrians when Fields plowed into them. According to the docs ... they were left with serious injuries and a vehicle covered in blood.

The suit also names several other white nationalist organizations that were present Saturday. The 2 are suing for $3 million for assault and battery, civil conspiracy and negligence. 

Fields has been charged with second-degree murder and malicious wounding for the attack.

We reached out to rally organizers named in the suit ... no word back so far.

LeBron James: Trump Made Hate Fashionable Again

8/15/2017 2:40 PM PDT
Breaking News

Two NBA superstars are going off on Donald Trump -- LeBron James and Steve Nash -- trashing POTUS over the comments he made about anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville

"Hate has always existed in America. Yes we know that but Donald Trump just made it fashionable again," Bron posted ... "Statues has nothing to do with us now!"

James is responding to Trump's news conference Tuesday in which he said alt-left protesters were also to blame for the violence in Virginia. He made a specific reference to protesters removing a statue of Robert E. Lee.

"This week, it is Robert E Lee," Trump said ... "I noticed that Stonewall Jackson's coming down. I wonder is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after?"

Trump then mentioned that he owned a winery in Charlottesville ... and that set off Steve Nash. 

"To defend white supremacists and then slang his sh*tty ass grape juice pretty much sums the man up."

LeBron has been ripping Trump for months -- and just this weekend wore a red hat to spoof Trump's "Make America Great Again" fashion line.

'Making The Band' Dylan Dili I Spit Hot Fire With Dave Chappelle, But It Wasn't Easy

8/15/2017 3:52 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The real Dylan Dili from Diddy's "Making The Band" finally getting the chance to meet his impersonator, Dave Chappelle, was no accident and it wasn't easy to orchestrate either.

Chappelle's sketch mocking Diddy's reality show and Dylan is now considered legendary, and it's pretty surprising the two hadn't met until the real Dylan literally had to make a charge for it at an event he knew Chappelle was going to be appearing at last Friday in Brooklyn.

When we got Dylan Tuesday he was still buzzing from the encounter. He's got a debut coming out, but seemed pretty gung-ho on a "Making The Band" reunion.

Donald Trump Back to Blaming Both Sides For Charlottesville Violence

Breaking News

Donald Trump taketh back what he giveth ... he's back to saying there was violence in Charlottesville Saturday on both sides -- left and right.

The President faced reporters at Trump Tower in NYC Tuesday and blamed the "alt-left" as much as the alt-right for the violent showdown.

When he was confronted by a reporter, he hurled an insult and moved on.

Trump scored with one fan ...former KKK leader David Duke just tweeted, "Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville and condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa."

John Heard -- who played the dad in "Home Alone" -- died in a California hotel room after suffering a heart attack brought on by heart disease, officials tell TMZ.

The 71-year-old was found in a hotel in Palo Alto, CA on July 21.

The Santa Clara County Medical Exmainer's Office conducted an autopsy and found Heard died of a "sudden cardiac death due to atheroscerotic and hypertensive heart disease."

Heard had undergone minor back surgery 2 days before his death at Stanford Medical Center (a short distance away) and was staying in that hotel while he recovered.

But officials say Heard's "recent back surgery did NOT play a role in his death."

As for toxicology, the results have not been made public.
