Justin Verlander and Dallas Keuchel -- along with relief pitcher Tyler Clippard hit up Delilah in West Hollywood on Sunday evening ... one of the hottest joints in town (Bieber was there last month). 

Don't worry ... nothing crazy happened. They all appeared sober and left before midnight. 

Justin said the guys were gonna try and win the World Series for the city of Houston. Keuchel said the guys feel pretty good about their chances. 

The Dodgers are gonna try and spoil the party when Game 1 begins on Tuesday.

Paris Jackson showed off some pretty impressive singing skills this weekend, and gotta say ... we hear shades of Michael Jackson.

MJ's little girl shared the mic with singer Austin Brown at Soho House in WeHo ... performing his song, "Smile." 

Judge for yourself ... we think she's really good.

Mark Cuban I'll Take On Trump as a Republican If I Run for Prez in 2020

10/22/2017 6:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Cuban will challenge Donald Trump in the primaries ... IF he decides to run for President in 2020.

Cuban was profiled on the Fox News Channel show "OBJECTified" Sunday night, and he declared which party he'd choose if he were to run ... he says it'd be Republican.

The Mavericks owner says he's still deciding whether he'll throw his hat in the ring, and that a lot depends on whether his wife is down with the run.

Cuban had supported Trump early on in the last race but soured on him -- Cuban felt he wasn't serious about understanding important issues. He became a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton in the general.

10/23/2017 6:56 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bill Murray's putting his foot down -- want an autograph? Cough up a donation, and $3 is NOT gonna cut it.

We got Bill out in D.C. on Sunday signing his John Hancock and noticed autograph seekers were also handing him cash. Turns out he was signing under one condition -- donate $20 towards hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and you've got a deal.

Check it out ... everyone's on board. Well, almost everyone. Some dude tried getting a discount, but Bill wasn't having it and he gave the guy a sick burn.

Pras 'No Need' For Janet At Super Bowl ... It's Too Risky

10/23/2017 7:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A hip-hop legend says don't look for Justin Timberlake to bring out Janet Jackson during his Super Bowl halftime show, telling TMZ Sports the reunion would be too risky for the NFL.

We got Pras -- one of the founding members of The Fugees -- out at Madeo in L.A. and asked if he thought Justin should do Janet a solid and bring her back to the big stage.

Janet's been banned ever since nipplegate back in '04, but let's face it, Justin was an accomplice and a lot of people think if JT's back in the fold, JJ should be too.

Not Pras, who told us there was "no need" to bring Janet back (ouch, bro) and went on to explain to us why he felt like the NFL might not be over Ms. Jackson being a little nasty.

Still though, do the right thing, Timberlake ...

'Veep' Star Diedrich Bader Oswald Acted Alone

10/23/2017 6:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Veep" star Diedrich Bader thinks the thousands of soon-to-be-released secret documents relating to the Kennedy assassination will not change the government's conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.

Diedrich -- who played Rex Kwan Do in "Napoleon Dynamite" -- was strolling in Larchmont Village Sunday when he took a minute to scoff at Trump's proclamation that he will not stand in the way of the documents being released this week. Intelligence officials have been lobbying for the Prez to withhold the release.

He says Oswald was an excellent shot and he's been to the School Book Depository Bldg. and says Oswald was more than capable of doing the deed. Fact is ... Oswald was considered a good shot but not a great shot, and getting 3 shots off in less than 6 seconds was a challenge.

The documents should be interesting ... there's clearly a reason the CIA and other government agencies wanted these documents under wraps. Kennedy was a foe of the CIA after it led him astray in the Bay of Pigs invasion, and there's a school of thought Oswald worked for the agency and it was behind the assassination.

We will see.

French President Macron's Dog Wee Wee!!!

10/23/2017 6:08 AM PDT

President Emmanuel Macron's dog got a leg up on his owner Sunday ... when he pissed on a fireplace during an official meeting ... and the Prez lost it!

Listen as you watch the video ... you hear the pee stream loud and clear and Macron busts up.

He was meeting with the junior minister for ecology, and other junior members of his government.

Nemo's a black lab that was the first Presidential pet to come from a rescue shelter. We're guessing he gets a pass.

What a relief.

Stevie Wonder Hey Dodgers, Call Me! I'll Do Anthem On Harmonica!!

10/23/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Dodgers keep winning -- first the NL pennant, and now Stevie Wonder tells TMZ Sports he's willing to pick up his harmonica and perform the national anthem at the World Series!!! 

Of course, there's some backstory here ... Wonder famously took a knee (and then a 2nd knee) during the height of the NFL national anthem demonstrations earlier this year. 

Which begs a few questions ... would the Dodgers be cool with Stevie? Would Stevie use the massive platform to demonstrate again? Who are they gonna get bigger than Stevie Wonder?! 

Stay tuned ... 

Meek Mill Airport Assault Case Dismissed

10/23/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill's gotta give it up to his legal team -- the rapper struck another sweet deal and his assault case has been thrown out.

TMZ broke the story ... Meek was charged with misdemeanor assault back in March after allegedly getting into an altercation with someone wanting a pic with the rapper at St. Louis International Airport. 

Fast forward 7 months ... Meek's high-powered attorney, Joe Tacopina, tells us Meek struck a deal with prosecutors to have the case dismissed if he performed community service ... which he did at the Veterans Association in Philly.

The news comes on the heels of Meek's reckless driving case -- where his arrest record will be wiped clean if he keeps his nose clean for 6 months.

Lay low, Meek.

'Little Women: Dallas' Poppin Bottles and Gettin' Rich In New Rap Music Videos

10/23/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Little Women: Dallas" stars Emily Fernandez and Bri Barlup are following in Cardi B's footsteps ... jumping from reality TV to rappers flaunting big stacks in their new music video.

We got an exclusive clip of Emily and Bri -- emcees Right Cheek and Left Cheek -- in their new "Get Rich" vid. It's the follow-up to their debut, "Poppin Bottles," which has racked up almost 10 million views in a couple months.

Remember, Bri is several months pregnant, but you can see it didn't slow her flow during production. We know what you're thinking, but we're told this isn't just a lame plotline for the show -- the ladies are dead serious about hip-hop.

They've even reached out to Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa to collab, but no word back. Yet.

Guess Who This Rockstar Turned Into!

Before this KISS fanatic was performing insane stunts for the camera, he was just another rockin' kid with an air guitar growing up in Florida. Can you guess who he is?

Justin Timberlake Got the Time? Yup, Super Bowl Halftime Show!

10/22/2017 5:19 PM PDT
Breaking News

Justin Timberlake is coming back to conquer the Super Bowl halftime show this year ... according to Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon

JT posted a vid Sunday that confirmed reports he was performing at Super Bowl LII, with his and Jimmy's mini skit playing on the phrase "have the time" ... which quickly morphed into "You're doing the halftime show at the Super Bowl??!!" 

As we reported ... the rest of 'NSYNC could possibly join Justin onstage during his performance, which seems even likelier now that he's definitely got the gig.

Can't say the same for Janet Jackson, though. She was recently mum on rumors about a possible reunion, ya know ... after 2004 and all.

We got this feeling ... there probably ain't gonna be a next time.

Kathy Griffin Hard Break with Lisa Bloom ... Over Trump Beheading Pic

10/22/2017 3:58 PM PDT

Kathy Griffin has apparently cut off her old attorney, Lisa Bloom ... and it all seems to be traced back to her Trump beheading photo and subsequent press conference.

Kathy tweeted (without much context) early Sunday morning, telling @LisaBloom to "pls stop calling me" and that if she wanted to talk ... she'd have to refund her the "tens of thousands of $$ I wasted on your services" for Kathy to even consider it.

Lisa responded Sunday afternoon claiming Kathy's attacks were unwarranted ... adding she even went way off script during their press conference back in June. You'll recall ... Kathy said President Trump and his family were bullying her, and attempting to ruin her career.

As you watch the video now ... you see Lisa staring at Kathy in disbelief as she speaks. Lisa says Kathy is her first client to not stick to prepared comments they both agreed to -- she also says she got death and rape threats as a result of partnering with Kathy.

Still ... Lisa says she wishes Kathy the best, and even thinks she meant no ill will with the photo. In other words ... see ya.
