Chandler Parsons Slam Dunks On A $11 Million Bel-Air Pad

8/21/2017 12:58 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Memphis Grizzlies small forward Chandler Parsons' new Bel-Air crib has a pool, 6 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and an outdoor fire pit but it doesn't look like he'll be getting any practice shots in at home.

Parsons, who's been linked to Hailey Baldwin and Bella Thorne, just dropped $11 million on a beautiful, open air Bel-Air home. He kinda made off with a deal on the place ... the original asking price was $13.3 million.

While it doesn't have a hoop ... he'll still get a workout in just walking around the place ... it's 9,100 square feet! It also has a full service bar which will require a different kind of stamina.

Farrah Aldjufrie and Melissa Platt from The Agency worked with Chandler on the purchase.

Solar Eclipse Totally Shades Hollywood Stars

8/21/2017 10:22 AM PDT

The first total solar eclipse in 38 years made its way across the U.S. Monday afternoon, and while the moon and the sun got their thing on, the stars - i.e. celebs - came out in droves to catch a peek.

Lady Gaga, Lance Bass, Jack Black, Bill Nye, Ryan Seacrest, Sarah Jessica Parker and many more got shaded in eclipse glasses. Amy Schumer and Sarah Hyland opted for the ol' DIY box projector. Even the Prez and his family got in on the fun.

The phenomenon could be seen across North America, from Oregon to South Carolina between 10 AM and 3 PM.

Eclipses happen about once every 18 months ... when the moon is expected to pass between the sun and the Earth. The next solar eclipse over the U.S. will be in 2024, and after that 2045.

Michael Lohan's Wife Threatened to Kill Cops ... Before Psych Hold

8/21/2017 10:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Lohan's estranged wife threatened to kill cops when she called 911 this weekend ... and later claimed domestic violence against Michael before being placed on a psychiatric hold.

Kate Major told a dispatcher last Friday in Boca Raton, Florida that she would "kill us all" if Boca PD did not find her kids after Michael left their house with them ... this after he claims he came home to find her drunk and belligerent.

According to a police report, obtained by TMZ, Kate was "hysterically crying and appeared to be intoxicated" when an officer arrived following her death threat on the phone. She told the cop Michael had accused her of cheating when he got home that night, and then pulled her hair and grabbed her throat before taking off with their 2 boys.

The cop, however, says he didn't see any signs of injuries, and noted she wasn't able to show him a video she claims she had that allegedly captured the whole incident. Michael did have video of what went down, and cops determined Kate needed to be placed on a psych hold.

Kate made "a number of racial comments about Officer Graham's race [the responding officer]" ... this according to the police report, which also said when she was in the patrol car she "kicked the slider and door repeatedly" and was spitting on the slider.

The responding officer said that "without proper care or treatment Kate was a potential danger to others."

We broke the story ... Kate was taken into custody under the Baker Act and was transported to a hospital.

Torrei Hart Numbers Don't Lie Kevin Was Cheating on Me

8/21/2017 9:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Torrei Hart can't believe Eniko Hart, Kevin's current wife, has forced her hand to publicly confirm Kevin cheated on her.

We got the ex-wife and mother of Kevin's 2 kids Sunday outside the Laugh Factory in WeHo, and she's genuinely perplexed that Eniko went after her on social media, saying she's playing the victim. Eniko also dropped a bombshell, saying she's been with Kevin for 8 years, yet he separated from Torrei 6 years ago.

Torrei is fierce but careful not to attack Kevin. It's clearly something she's dealt with privately in the past.

President Trump Making the Secret Service go Broke!!! (Update: Wait, Not Really)

8/21/2017 8:32 AM PDT

8:45 AM PT -- Wait, seems Alles is backtracking ... or clarifying (depending on how ya look at it). 

"The Secret Service has the funding it needs to meet all current mission requirements for the remainder of the fiscal year and compensate employees for overtime within statutory pay caps," Alles said in a new statement. 

"The Secret Service estimates that roughly 1,100 employees will work overtime hours in excess of statutory pay caps during calendar year 2017.

"Our agency experienced a similar situation in calendar year 2016 that resulted in legislation that allowed Secret Service employees to exceed statutory caps on pay."

"To remedy this ongoing and serious problem, the agency has worked closely with the Dept. of Homeland Security, the Administration, and the Congress over the past several months to find a legislative solution."

"As we work to ensure that employees are compensated for the hours they work, the Secret Service continues its rigorous hiring of special agents, Uniformed Division officers, and critical support staff to meet future mission requirements."

"The issue is not one that can be attributed to the current Administration's protection requirements, but rather has been an ongoing issue for nearly a decade due to an overall increase in operational tempo."

President Trump's breaking the Secret Service's bank because he's too damn expensive to protect, this according to the guy who RUNS the agency.

Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles told USA Today the agency can no longer pay hundreds of agents tasked with protecting POTUS and his family because they've already hit federally mandated caps for salary and overtime. 

Alles says the budget for agents is supposed to last the entire year -- but more than 1,000 agents have already hit their ceiling. 

He chalks up the surge in hours to Trump's large family and travel schedule. 

Alles says the Secret Service must protect 42 people under Trump -- 11 more than the 31 who got protection under Obama

"The president has a large family and our responsibility is required in law," Alles says ... "I can't change that. I have no flexibility."

Alles says the workload has also increased with Trump traveling to his properties in FL, NJ and VA almost every weekend.

The Prez has reportedly made so many visits to his golf properties the Secret Service has spent $60k in golf cart rentals alone. It costs at least $3 mil each time Trump visits Mar-a-Lago.

Alles says the situation is so dire, some agents have started to leave -- and he's lobbying to Congress to raise the combined salary and overtime from $160k to $187k. 

We reached out to the White House for comment. So far, no word back.

'Wonder Woman' Star Solar Eclipse is No Bad Juju!!!

8/21/2017 9:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Wonder Woman" star Eugene Brave Rock says don't fear the natural ... a total solar eclipse is a time for celebration!

Eugene -- who hails from the Blackfoot Indian Tribe and starred as The Chief in the epic DC Comics flick -- says the first total solar eclipse in 38 years is reason to throw a massive party to welcome the mating of the sun and the moon.

Check it out ... Eugene's not speaking for the rest of the nearly 600 Native American tribes, some of which will head indoors for a "time out" -- as in no talking and no eating or drinking.

Eugene sees it differently.

Mayweather to Bieber You're Dead to Me!!!

8/21/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber is not only off Floyd Mayweather's Money Team, he's now one of Floyd's mortal enemies ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to both Justin and Floyd tell us, the folks at the Hillsong Church have been counseling Justin for months on taking a hard look at his friends and pulling back from those who are bad influences.  

We're told church pastors did not single out Floyd as a bad influence, but Justin decided on his own he needed some distance. Our sources say Justin didn't want a clean break from Floyd, he just wanted to "reset boundaries" ... walling himself off from things like Floyd's obsession with strip clubs.

Justin unfollowed Floyd on Instagram as part of the resetting of boundaries, and our sources say Floyd went "insane, nuclear." He lashed out at Justin, called him a "traitor" because Floyd had stuck with Justin during his meltdown when everyone was attacking Bieber.

Sources connected with Floyd say the boxer continues to be incensed at Justin ... screaming incensed.

Now it makes sense why Justin curiously told our photog last week he didn't think Floyd would knock Conor McGregor out at next Saturday's fight.

We're told Justin will likely be a no-show at the fight.

Jay-Z Finally Talks Elevator Incident with Solange ... Sort of

8/20/2017 8:42 PM PDT

Jay-Z has finally broken his silence over the infamous elevator video in which Solange Knowles attacked him as Beyonce looked on.

Jay was on the podcast "Rap Radar" when he addressed the 2014 incident at the Standard Hotel in NYC, but without discussing the trigger for Solange's tirade.

Jay said obtusely, "I fought my brothers and argued with my brothers my whole life. It just so happens, who we are, these things go into a different space, but it ain't nothing."

He went on ... "We had one disagreement ever. Before and after we've been cool. She's like my sister. I will protect her. That's my sister, not my sister-in-law, my sister."

It seems Solange was angry over Jay's alleged infidelity when she went off in the elevator, which he underscores in his new song, "Kill Jay Z" ... "You egged Solange on/Knowin' all along, all you had to say you was wrong/you almost went Eric Benet/Let the baddest girl in the world get away."

Future Unfazed as Wicked Brawl Unfolds in Middle of Concert

8/21/2017 6:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Future got bum-rushed onstage and that poor bastard who did it paid a hefty price -- security tossed him back into the crowd and a melee erupted.

The incident went down Friday night at Future's concert at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex in Alabama. The rapper was in the middle of performing "Wicked" when the overly eager fan made his way onstage.

We're told security managed to get the fan off stage and, once back on the floor, the fan started fighting security. That's when security tossed him back onto the crowd, who took matters into their own hands and laid a beatdown.

Arena security and off-duty cops brought control in a matter of minutes ... all while Future performed throughout the fight. We're told EMTs treated several people and cops took statements but it's unclear if any arrests were made.

Bum-rushing the stage ... it never ends well.

George & Amal Clooney Parents' Night Out in Italy

8/21/2017 7:02 AM PDT

George and Amal Clooney took a break from baby duty Sunday night and decided to go to a restaurant that rivals their fame.

George and Amal hit up Harry's Bar at the Piazza Risorgimento in Lake Como. She looks amazing ... remember, she dropped the twins 2 months ago.

Kinda funny ... Amal got all spiffy in a glowing green dress, but George didn't follow suit, or anything even close.

Can't blame George for dressing down ... guy's gotta be losing sleep these days, or he just doesn't care 'cause he's worth half a billion.

Lonzo Ball Thank You, Jay-Z! ... Your ZO2s Are Coming!

8/21/2017 6:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lonzo Ball says he's incredibly thankful to Jay-Z for ordering 3 pairs of his ZO2 kicks -- but reminds the mogul the shoes ain't coming for another 3 months!

We got Lonzo out in Bev Hills over the weekend -- after dropping some cash at Louis Vuitton -- and asked about Jay publicly and privately throwing his support behind the Big Baller Brand.

"I'm just thankful man," the Lakers rookie said ... "Appreciate it."

Lonzo says he hasn't met with Jay and doesn't know too much about the business side of the shoe line -- "I just play basketball man. I don't handle that."

As for Jay's one complaint ... that he hasn't received any of the shoes yet -- Lonzo reminded Hov that they aren't scheduled to ship until November. 

As we previously reported, Jay appeared on "Rap Radar" podcast on Tidal last week and told Elliott Wilson and B.Dot that he's backing the BBB brand because it's important for him to help black owned businesses. 

Dave Chappelle New York Governor Says Dude, You're An Inspiration!!!

8/21/2017 6:45 AM PDT

Dave Chappelle got a big honor bestowed on him over the weekend ... by the New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Nika Milbrun, Cuomo's Assistant Director of Constituencies for African-American and Women's Affairs, did the honors in NYC, telling Chappelle he's been a role model and an inspiration. She mentions how charitable Dave has been, notably giving $50k to Flint and set to host a charity event with Rihanna in Sept.

Milbrun said Dave has been a big influence in helping African-American entertainers, and the award syncs up with Dave's August residency at Radio City Music Hall where he fills the stage with African-American entertainers. 

She also joked that there were times Chappelle pushed the line, but all was good.

For his part, Dave was humbled by the honor and talked about his connection to the Big Apple.
