10/18/2017 8:47 AM PDT

Here's a pretty cool moment ... Kyrie Irving took a few moments to dap up LeBron James' kids after the Celtics lost to the Cavs on Tuesday -- and it was all caught on video. 

You know the backstory ... Kyrie left Cleveland during the off-season amid reports he just wasn't getting along with LeBron. Seemed like a pretty nasty split

But things seemed cool between the families after the game -- when Kyrie bumped into Bron's sons LeBron Jr. and Bryce and stopped to give 'em a handshake and bro hug.

So ... water under the bridge??? 

Rob Kardashian Fight with Blac Chyna Triggered by Coke, Booze

10/18/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna didn't get beaten up by Rob Kardashian as she claims ... SHE was the aggressor in a cocaine-fueled rage ... so say sources connected to the Kardashians.

TMZ broke the story ... Chyna is suing Rob, Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kim, Kylie and Kendall, claiming they conspired to torpedo her reality show and also caused her great pain over an alleged domestic violence incident in April. She says Rob knocked her to the ground and hit her in a rage.

Our Kardashian sources say the real story is this ... they claim the day before the incident, Chyna was using coke and drinking alcohol from morning till night. They say later that night Chyna and Rob went to a strip club and Chyna got a stripper to come home with them.

We're told Chyna partied with the stripper all night long, doing more coke and continuing her drinking binge while Rob watched Dream and King Cairo.  

Our sources say Rob confronted Chyna the next morning, kicking the stripper out, calling Chyna irresponsible. He claims she went ballistic, hitting him, throwing things at him and berating him. Rob insists he only defended himself and never struck her.

The sources say Rob actually had an appointment that day with the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services, which had an open case against Chyna. He says he protected her by not mentioning the incident.

Shawn Holley, the Kardashian lawyer, tells TMZ, "We have witness statements and other evidence which will demonstrate conclusively that it is Chyna -- not Rob -- who is the violent and aggressive abuser."

Our Kardashian source claims Chyna tried shaking the family down for millions before filing suit.

We reached out to Chyna's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, who said, "There's no excuse for domestic violence." She did not comment on the allegations against her client.

Post Malone How to Be a Rockstar ... Multiple Attempts Required

EXCLUSIVE

Post Malone quickly realized technique is everything if you wanna be a guitar-smashing rock star -- but he was still able to live up to his own song title. Eventually.

Post was doing a show Tuesday night in Fort Lauderdale, when he had Postmates deliver a sweet red guitar from a local Guitar Center. We're told it cost him about $1,000.

He originally asked for 100 guitars, with the idea of smashing 'em onstage while performing his new #1 hit with 21 Savage, "Rockstar." Fortunately, he stuck with just one ... 'cause it was a bitch to break.

For those about to rock, Post salutes you! Slowly.

Las Vegas Shooting Hotel Guard Opens Up About Finding Shooter

10/18/2017 7:41 AM PDT

Jesus Campos, the Mandalay Bay security guard who alerted police to the Las Vegas shooter, is speaking out for the first time about the violent encounter that left him with gunshot wounds.

Jesus opened up to Ellen DeGeneres ... detailing the harrowing moments leading up to him discovering Stephen Paddock on the 32nd floor, just as he was starting to open fire on the crowd of concertgoers below.

He thinks a loud slamming door during his routine check of the floor is what tipped off his location to Paddock, who then started shooting into the hallway -- and hit Campos in the leg.

Miraculously, Campos says he was still able to somehow get on his radio and tell his team shots had been fired. You can hear his full story on Wednesday's episode of 'Ellen.'

EXCLUSIVE

Stephanie Courtney, the woman who plays Flo in those Progressive commercials, doesn't make a penny off the Halloween costume she made famous ... but she's still a fan of you wearing it.

We got Stephanie in Beverly Hills Tuesday and asked what it's like seeing a bunch of Flos roaming the streets around Halloween.

You'd think she has it easy when it comes to figuring out a costume, but Steph has an excellent explanation for why you won't see her rocking the red wig on Oct. 31.

Breaking News

The Tragically Hip's frontman Gord Downie lost his battle with brain cancer Tuesday night. 

Gord was diagnosed with incurable glioblastoma after suffering a seizure in December of 2015. Instead of calling it quits, Gord and the rest of The Tragically Hip announced they'd be doing a final 15-date tour the following summer and played their final gig in Kingston, Ontario on Aug. 20, 2016.

The band produced 14 albums, at least half of which went to #1.

He continued to release solo albums until his death. His last album, the 23-song double album, "Introduce Yerself," will be released later this month. 

The Band said this ... "Gord knew this day was coming – his response was to spend this precious time as he always had – making music, making memories and expressing deep gratitude to his family and friends for a life well lived, often sealing it with a kiss… on the lips."

Gord was 53.

EXCLUSIVE

Didn't take long for O.J. Simpson to reach out to his old NFL pals -- he called Eric Dickerson THE NIGHT he was released from prison ... this according to the Hall of Famer himself. 

"He's good. He's really good," Dickerson told TMZ Sports ... "He's trying to get me to hang out with him." 

Dickerson and Simpson were pretty tight before O.J. got locked up and have remained friendly throughout the years. 

E.D. says O.J. has already invited him out to Vegas for a round of golf -- and while he's not ready to hit the links with Juice just yet ... sounds like it's just a matter of time. 

McKayla Maroney: I Was Drugged and Molested By Team USA Doctor

10/18/2017 6:15 AM PDT
Breaking News

McKayla Maroney says she was sexually assaulted by the team doctor for the U.S. women's gymnastics team and Olympic team -- and the abuse started when she was 13 years old. 

The former U.S. Olympic gymnast went public about the alleged abuse Wednesday morning -- saying Dr. Larry Nassar repeatedly molested her under the guise of administering "treatment."

The 21-year-old says, "Dr. Nassar told me that I was receiving 'medically necessary treatment that he had been performing on patients for over 30 years.'"

"It started when I was 13 years old, at one of my first National Team training camps, in Texas, and it didn't end until I left the sport."

"It seemed whenever and wherever this man could find the chance, I was 'treated.' It happened in London before my team and I won the gold medal, and it happened before I won my Silver."

Maroney says Nassar gave her a sleeping pill on a flight to Tokyo when she was 15 -- "and the next thing I know, I was all alone with him in his hotel room getting a 'treatment.' I thought I was going to die that night."

McKayla joins a long list of women accusing Nassar of sexual misconduct -- 125 women, including former gymnasts, have already filed suit against him for alleged incidents over the years. 

For his part, Nassar has claimed "procedures" in which he would treat women intra-vaginally were medically appropriate. 

John Legend Expel Harvey Weinstein from Hollywood

10/18/2017 6:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Legend all but says with great power comes great responsibility ... and that's why Harvey Weinstein's ass should be banished from Hollywood -- he simply can't be trusted.

We got the singer at LAX Tuesday and he had a strong take on Harvey resigning from The Weinstein Co. Board of Directors. John says if anyone in Harvey's position abuses their power, they need to hit the road -- and men need to listen when women speak out.

We also ask John about his vineyard and if it's safe from the ravaging fires -- but it's clear John thinks there are more pressing issues.

Harvey Weinstein Lawsuits Against Mogul Good Investment for Financing Companies

10/18/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein's accusers don't have to resort to GoFundMe to foot their legal bills if they end up suing, because companies are lining up to front the cash.

Who knew there were legal financing companies that invest in cases that are likely to produce a financial jackpot? It seems these companies think suing Harvey Weinstein and TWC will be a cakewalk. 

The CEO for Legal-Bay tells us they believe many of the women who might sue will get $50k minimum and as high as 7 figures. The company is on the hunt for actresses who aren't big names but may have had their careers blocked by Weinstein. 

Another financing company, Legalist, is offering $100k for litigation costs. A company rep tells us they're not chasing clients, but rather advertising their services on social media. They also think the most likely clients are staffers at TWC and not actresses who often have enough money to sue.

A Legalist rep says the company has settled other sexual assault cases ... some for millions.

Master P To Colin Kaepernick Screw The NFL ... Let's Start Our Own League!!!

10/18/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Master P has a message for Colin Kaepernick ... WHO NEEDS THE NFL ... telling TMZ Sports if the league won't let Kaep ball, he's down to help Colin start up his own shop, and take down the shield.

P knows about sports startups, his Global Mixed Gender Basketball league is off to an incredible start, attracting big name talent like the Gonzalez Twins, Glen "Big Baby" Davis, and Metta World Peace.

When we got him out in L.A. we had to ask P what he thought about Kaep's situation, and P had a very simple answer, if you can't join 'em, beat 'em.

"I'll help him start his own league. I think he should, I mean he's a great football player. I think the NFL should have some competition."

P's point is that the only way Colin can ensure his right to demonstrate any way he wants is to have some ownership, and that's exactly what he wants to do with his upstart league.

Someone get "He Hate Me" on the phone.
