Britney Spears Trial Date Set for Stage Crasher ... Facing 2 Charges

12/12/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The guy who bum-rushed Britney Spears on her Las Vegas stage now has 2 charges hanging over his head, and he's one step closer to a trial ... TMZ has learned.

According to court docs, Jesse Webb's trial is scheduled to begin January 18. He's been charged with one count of battery and one count of disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.

As we reported, Webb was arrested in August after he jumped on stage, and briefly walked around before Brit's security guards and dancers took him down. Cops say Webb kicked one of the guards during the incident ... which would be the battery charge.

Webb's set to go to trial, but the reality is he's charged with misdemeanors, and the whole thing's on video -- so, all signs point to a plea deal.

We've reached out to his attorney ... so far, no word back.

Carrie Fisher's Dog Gary Doesn't Just Heel, He Heals ... Says New Owner

12/12/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Carrie Fisher's French bulldog, Gary, is more than a famous pooch looking to make a buck -- he's downright therapeutic for Carrie's throngs of fans ... and his new owner's seen it happen, firsthand.

We got Carrie's former assistant, Corby McCoinleaving Basix Cafe in West Hollywood ... with Gary, of course. We asked her about the standoff with Disney and Carrie's family -- primarily her daughter Billie Lourd and ex-husband Bryan Lourd.

We broke the story ... Billie and Bryan think Gary's public appearances cheapen Carrie's legacy, and want Corby to keep Gary out of the spotlight. 

Corby says she isn't in it for the money, but adds it's clear to her now ... Gary provides emotional support to fans who are missing Carrie.

Roy Moore's Wife We're Not Anti-Semites ... Some of Our Best Lawyers Are Jews

12/11/2017 7:04 PM PST
Breaking News

Roy Moore and his wife rolled out that old tried-and-true response to allegations they're anti-Semitic -- pointing out they employ Jews. 

Kayla Moore was speaking at an event for her husband Monday night in Alabama, on the eve of the special Senate election, when she made the cringeworthy comment.

Kayla said the "fake news" would have you believe they don't care for Jews, and she wanted to set the record straight once and for all. Not sure this shout-out to their legal team will get the job done, but here it is. 

Kayla added some of their closest friends are Jewish, too. Seriously. That's almost word-for-word how she said it. 

As the Moore's inner circle might say ... oy vey!

Charles Manson Death Certificate Released

12/11/2017 5:24 PM PST
Exclusive Document

Charles Manson died of acute cardiac arrest and complication of a battle with colon cancer.

TMZ just obtained Manson's death certificate -- released by Kern County -- and it lists cardiac arrest as the immediate cause of death. Respiratory failure and metastatic colon cancer are the underlying causes.

TMZ broke the story ... Manson died November 19 at a hospital in Bakersfield, CA. He'd been transferred there from Corcoran State Prison when his condition worsened.

The document is short on details about the mass murderer. His mother and father's names are listed as unknown. Ditto for his occupation, but we kinda know that already -- failed songwriter, turned weirdo murderous cult leader.

Rep. Steve Scalise Here's How I Roll ... I'm Getting Back On Baseball Field!!!

EXCLUSIVE

GOP House Whip Steve Scalise's competitive juices are rivaling those of Astros superstar Jose Altuve ... vowing to return as the Congressional second baseman after surviving a bullet.

We got the congressman at Reagan National Airport in D.C. and asked how his recovery's coming along. You'll recall Scalise and the Congressional Baseball Team came under attack in June after James T. Hodgkinson fired as many as 50 rounds with an automatic rifle.

Check it out ... Scalise -- who fought for his life after being struck in the hip -- has a new goal. We'll just say this: whoever took his spot in the lineup ... watch your back.

Keaton Jones GoFundMe Problems Account On Hold, $58k Left Hanging!!!

12/11/2017 2:22 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

There's a big hiccup in online fundraising efforts for Keaton Jones -- one GoFundMe page has been shut down altogether, and another's on hold with nearly $60,000 unspoken for.

GoFundMe tells us the page labeled "Stand Up for Keaton," which was opened 2 days ago, is no longer accepting donations. Since Keaton's anti-bullying message went viral over the weekend, the page has pulled in $58,249 in donations ... however the guy who started it is putting the charity on hold. GoFundMe says it needs to contact Keaton's mom, Kimberly Jones, to ensure she's the beneficiary ... since the guy who started the page doesn't know her. So far, the company's been unable to reach her.

There was a second GoFundMe page, purportedly started by Kimberly herself which solicited money for Keaton's Christmas gifts. Sources close to the situation tell us that was immediately shut down by GoFundMe due to fraud concerns -- namely, whether it was really started by Kimberly.

Further complicating the fundraising are social media postings from the real Kimberly Jones. As we reported ... photos of her with the Confederate flag and comments about whining "butt hurt Americans" have sparked an online backlash.

The guy behind the "Stand Up for Keaton" page even reacted, saying, "THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE MOM!!" He added he doesn't know the Jones family, but just wanted to help a kid who's been bullied.

Charles Barkley Rallying for Roy Moore Opponent ... To Fight 'White Separatism'

12/11/2017 3:07 PM PST
Breaking News

Charles Barkley is stepping up for Roy Moore's opponent for the open U.S. Senate seat -- this after blasting Moore for his close ties to Steve Bannon.

Barkley is appearing with Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones Monday evening in Birmingham ... the eve of the election. The NBA Hall of Famer, and Alabama native, will be at a Jones rally -- along with "Orange Is the New Black" star Uzo Aduba.

Charles made his feelings about Moore clear last month when he got heated about the support he gets from Bannon -- an alleged white separatist, in Barkley's opinion.

The Bannon factor alone is enough reason to NOT vote for Moore, never mind the allegations of sexual misconduct with minors ... according to CB.

It's interesting ... Barkley won't vote in Tuesday's special election -- he no longer lives in Alabama -- yet he's taking time to appear with Moore's opponent. He's admitted not knowing a lot about Jones, but clearly thinks he's gotta be better than Moore. 

Brittany Snow Sued Over Car Crash You Screwed My Neck!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Brittany Snow's allegedly heavy foot just got her sued.

Jose Erazo Gomez is suing the 'Pitch Perfect' star after he says he was rear-ended at a high rate of speed back in July 2016. In docs, obtained by TMZ, Gomez says the other driver's failure to stop caused him catastrophic injuries.

We're told Brittany was the one behind the wheel, but Jose is also suing her mom, Cindy. In docs, Gomez says he suffered shock and injury to his nervous system. We're told that includes a disc tear in his neck.

He's suing for unspecified damages. We've reached out to Brittany, so far no word back.

Chris Bosh's Mom: I'm No Drug Trafficker ... But Chris Is Evicting Me

12/11/2017 1:30 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Bosh's mom tells TMZ Sports allegations she's trafficking drugs out of the Texas home owned by her NBA star son are ridiculous and untrue ... but acknowledges there is a rift with Chris. 

We spoke with Freida Bosh and her son, Joel Bosh, about the police raid on the home where she lives in DeSoto, Texas ... in which cops claim they found evidence connecting Freida's house with a drug trafficking operation

Freida says she "built" the home with Chris roughly 12 years ago -- but since then, their relationship has deteriorated and he's been trying to evict her. Freida says the two haven't spoken in 5 years. 

To combat the eviction, Freida says she's had to hire lawyers -- and has been forced to rent out the home to various tenants to cover the pricey legal bills. 

Long story short ... Freida says the person who brought trouble to the home is a former short-term tenant -- and she had NOTHING to do with his alleged illegal activity. 

FYI, cops believe crack cocaine and heroin were being trafficked out of the home. No arrests have been made, but we're told that could happen soon.

Joel Bosh says he's been trying to help his mom work things out with Chris -- but his priority is helping her clear her name in the drug trafficking case because he believes she's 100% innocent. 

Despite the family drama, both Freida and Joel say they love Chris and hope they can reconcile soon.

Bill Clinton was on the move in D.C. Monday morning -- but for as fast as he was going ... he didn't hesitate to give a status update on Hillary.

We got 42 leaving Reagan National Airport, and asked how the missus was doing on her national book tour. He wasn't all that chatty ... but was happy to flash a nonverbal response.

His security detail kept our photog at a distance -- one of the perks of being a former Prez -- but Bubba definitely seemed to be in high spirits here.

Gigi Hadid That Wasn't Armpit Hair, Guys Blame It On Wardrobe!

12/11/2017 12:31 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Gigi Hadid wasn't trying to show off her unshaven pits during her LOVE Magazine photo shoot -- 'cause the fuzz folks saw was nothin' but loose fibers ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Gigi tell us her "armpit hair" -- which was prominently featured in day 11 of LOVE Magazine's Advent calendar video series -- was, in fact, residue left behind from the jacket she was wearing on set.

We're told the culprit was simply that navy cropped coat Gigi is seen wearing in the vid -- ya know, the one in which she's striking poses and kinda working up a sweat. Makes sense some of that could've gotten stuck to her. 

What doesn't make sense is that no one on set saw the hairy stuff during the shoot, or even while editing the video.

Bullied Student Keaton Jones' Mom Gets Backlash Over Confederate Flag

12/11/2017 10:47 AM PST

Photos and words posted by Tennessee student Keaton Jones' mother have many people questioning whether she deserves any of the sympathy generated by Keaton's viral video.

Kimberly Jones' Facebook page reportedly features several photos of herself and friends displaying the Confederate flag. There's also a post in August where she seems to be telling people to stop whining about slavery and racism. It's not clear exactly what she's referring to, but the post was written 2 weeks after the neo-nazi rally in Charlottesville.

One of the photos on her page shows Keaton and a few other kids. Keaton is holding the U.S. flag and another kid is holding the Confederate flag.

The video Kimberly posted of Keaton talking about getting bullied has won over a ton of celebs -- many of whom have invited him and his mom to Hollywood and sporting events.

You gotta wonder ... if Kimberly's posts -- especially the one where she shows zero sympathy for "butt hurt Americans" -- will make celebs and others reconsider their sympathy for her and Keaton.
