Ex-'Housewife' Carlton Gebbia Back on the Market ... Officially Divorced

9/20/2018 2:26 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' alum Carlton Gebbia is officially single -- her divorce from David Gebbia is now final ... TMZ has learned.

The judge signed off on the divorce settlement Thursday, according to docs obtained by TMZ. David filed in November 2017 -- citing irreconcilable differences -- but they'd separated nearly a year before that.

Carlton and David got married back in September 1997 and have 3 children -- 2 teenage daughters and a 6-year-old son.

The last 12 months have been rough -- not long after David filed to divorce Carlton, she was sued by her housekeeper who claimed Carlton drunkenly attacked her. Carlton has denied the attack.

9/20/2018 11:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The father of NBA star Richard Jefferson was killed in a drive-by shooting in Compton on Wednesday evening ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Law enforcement tells us ... 65-year-old Richard Jefferson Sr. was in front of a liquor store in a primarily residential area around 6:52 PM when a vehicle rolled up and someone inside opened fire. 

Jefferson Sr. was struck multiple times in the torso. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. 

Sources say Jefferson Sr. was with 2 other men at the time of the shooting. It's unclear if Jefferson Sr. was the target. 

We're told the L.A. Sheriff's Dept. is investigating. 

Jefferson was born in South Central. His mother and father split when he was very young and his mom took him to Phoenix, where she raised him with her new husband. 

Richard Jr. went on to have a solid NBA career -- winning an NBA title with the Cleveland Cavs in 2016. 

We reached out to Richard's camp for comment. So far, no word back. 

Kanye West Rips Drake & Nick Cannon ... Sex Talk About Kim is Off Limits!!!

9/20/2018 10:29 AM PDT
Breaking News

Kanye West is unloading on Drake and Nick Cannon for publicly talking, rapping or even suggesting anything about Kim Kardashian.

Kim's husband stood up for her with a series of videos where he shares a bunch of "things that were not sitting right with my spirit." The first of which being Nick talking about Kim's body in a recent VladTV interview. Nick and Kim dated back in their mid-20s, and Nick excitedly reminisced about her body, saying ... "That white girl got ass!!"

Kanye's demanding Nick show some respect for him in the future if someone asks him any questions about Kim.

As for Drake ... Kanye's in HIS feelings about "In My Feelings." Remember, there's a rumor the lyric about "Kiki" is a reference to Kim -- that's her family nickname, and everyone knows it from their show. Ye says Drake should've publicly stated the Kiki in his song is NOT Kim. 

As Kanye puts it ... he wouldn't rap about a girl named RiRi.

He's also got beef with an unreleased Drake and Future song that featured lyrics saying, "I got 20 motherf**king Kylie’s ... I got 20 damn Kendalls." In a nutshell, Kanye says ... "So, period is like don't speak on nobody from my family, nothing that can be even mentioned on my wife, period!"

Oh, and he didn't leave out Tyson Beckford either -- a clear reference to Kim's feud with the model

LeBron James Trump Calling Me Dumb? 'That's Like Saying I Can't Play Ball'

9/20/2018 10:59 AM PDT
Breaking News

LeBron James is lashing back at Donald Trump -- saying he didn't give a crap when POTUS called him dumb because, "I'm not."

"That's like somebody saying I can't play ball," LeBron told The Hollywood Reporter

"That doesn't bother me at all. What bothers me is that he has time to even do that. He has the most powerful job in the world. Like, you really got this much time that you can comment on me?"

LeBron is referencing a tweet Trump put out on August 3 in the wake of LJ's interview on CNN, when the NBA superstar said the President is using sports to divide America

Trump tweeted, "LeBron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn't easy to do. I like Mike!"

LeBron has been extremely critical of the President for a while -- calling him a "bum" after Trump uninvited the Golden State Warriors to the White House to celebrate their NBA title in 2017. 

Donald Trump Finally Behind Bars ... His WOF Star, Anyway

9/20/2018 10:54 AM PDT

Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got the prison bars treatment ... after a familiar prankster pulled off the hilarious stunt.

The president's WOF star was locked down after a street artist, who goes by the name Plastic Jesus, attached bars to the star. PJ laid down the bars much to everyone's amusement before a wandering Trump supporter took matters into his own hands Wednesday.

Plastic Jesus says he used instant-drying, industrial strength, double-sided sticky tape, which is why he says it took the Trump supporter HOURS to remove them, also to everyone's delight.

The prankster says it was done as a joke, adding Trump should pay the price if he's ever found guilty of a crime. Special counsel Robert Mueller, of course, is investigating whether Trump and Co. colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.

And, speaking of 2016 ... you'll recall Plastic Jesus is the one who erected a 6-inch wall around Trump's star to protest the border wall. It's a far cry from the destruction Trump's star received earlier this year ... becoming a lightning rod for street fights.

Elizabeth Smart Kidnapper Barzee Goes Wild 1st Night Out of Prison

9/20/2018 9:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

11:31 AM PT -- A spokesperson for the South Salt Lake City Police department tells us there was a mix-up in reporting the calls to the hotel Wednesday night. We're told there was a disturbance on the property involving an individual banging on doors through the hotel, but they do not believe it had to do with Wanda.

The hotel guest we spoke with who told us Barzee was shouting scripture and praising Joseph Smith into the early hours of the night stands by their story.

Elizabeth Smart's kidnapper who was just released spent her first night of freedom going off the rails ... so much so, cops were called ... TMZ has learned.

Wanda Barzee spent Wednesday night at a Salt Lake City hotel and, according to a guest staying in an adjacent room, Barzee went on a religious tirade. We're told she was wailing religious scripture at the top of her lungs.

The guest also says Barzee was loudly praising Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism. 

A law enforcement source tells us a call came in to dispatch from a guest at the hotel, but when officers tried to call the complainant back, no one responded. They did not send a unit to check it out.

We're told there was also a call to police for a media disturbance outside the hotel -- and officers did respond to that -- asking reporters to back away from the property.

Barzee was released from prison Wednesday after serving 15 years. 

Not long after Barzee's release, Elizabeth reacted on Instagram saying, "Without [a] doubt the past few weeks have been a rollercoaster of emotion ... May we all remain vigilant in watching over our families, friends, and community from anyone who would seek to hurt or take advantage."

Meghan Markle I Can Always Count on My Mom!!! Visits for Cookbook Launch

9/20/2018 9:36 AM PDT

Meghan Markle's mom came flying to her daughter's side for the Duchess of Sussex's first solo project this week, and the timing of her visit couldn't be more perfect.

Doria Ragland joined Meghan and Prince Harry Thursday at a London event to launch a new cookbook for a communal kitchen Meghan is supporting. She wrote the foreword for the book.

Recent reports say Meghan is feeling kinda lonely as a new member of the Royal Family -- so, a visit from Mom would probably help cure the blues. That's also why some outlets are speculating Doria might eventually move to London. 

Based on the way Meghan was looking at Doria before and during the event ... we're guessing she'd love to have mama bear close.

Interestingly, Princess Diana famously struggled with loneliness after marrying Prince Charles.

Sooo ... Doria to the rescue?

Machine Gun Kelly I Apologized to Em Long Ago But Now I'd Say 'F*** You!'

9/20/2018 7:29 AM PDT

Machine Gun Kelly says he apologized to Eminem's camp years ago for saying Em's daughter is hot, but now he's got no time for the "old man" -- oh, and he also insists he banged Halsey. Sorry, G-Eazy.

MGK went on "The Breakfast Club" Thursday and talked about calling Em's manager, Paul Rosenberg, in 2012 to say sorry for tweeting about Em's then-teenage daughter. He says he thought the issue was squashed, but adds there are still people at Interscope -- his and Em's distributor -- who pick sides ... even the ones assigned to promote his music. 

Fast forward to 2018 and we get "Kamikaze," "Rap Devil" and then "Killshot." MGK doubles down on his claim Eminem is old and irrelevant in hip-hop today. As for a possible sit-down between the two -- Kelly had only 2 words ... one of them starts with 'F.'

He also briefly addresses the fight he and his security got into in Atlanta with actor Gabriel "G-Rod" Rodriguez. Kelly refused to elaborate on why his fingers are bandaged.

Kelly eventually talks Halsey and says he "absolutely" hooked up with her after she split with G-Eazy earlier this year. She eventually got back together with G, but not before MGK fired off a diss track at her man ... and received one in return. 

Also for the record, MGK was swilling tequila during this interview.

Demi Lovato Wilmer Valderrama is Her Rock in Rehab

9/20/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Demi Lovato is still in rehab -- nearly 2 months after her overdose -- and one person has put his life on hold to be a constant presence -- Wilmer Valderrama

TMZ has learned Demi quietly transferred from a rehab center on the East Coast to another facility that is world-renowned for its addiction programs. She's been at that facility for more than a month, and Wilmer has flown there several times during visiting days to be with her.

Several people in a nearby town tell TMZ, they've seen Demi and Wilmer at a local Starbucks several times, and it appeared to people in the shop they were boyfriend/girlfriend.

We don't know if they're back together ... what we do know is that Wilmer put everything on hold when Demi almost died from an opioid OD on July 24 and was a constant presence at the hospital, where she spent nearly 2 weeks.

Demi and Wilmer were together for 6 years and split back in 2016.   

As for rehab, the facility offers intensive, long-term treatment for drugs and alcohol and is very much a group program. In fact, Demi was also seen several times at the Starbucks with other patients from the rehab facility.

Luke Walton I'm Down to Be in 'Space Jam 2'!! ... If Bron Wants Me

9/20/2018 8:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Tune Squad is gonna need a coach ... and who better than LeBron James' coach in real life -- Luke Walton -- to lead the Looney Tunes to victory in the "Space Jam" sequel?!

TMZ Sports asked the Lakers coach if he's down to star alongside LBJ in the highly-anticipated follow-up to the 1996 classic starring Michael Jordan ... and L.W. says he's IN!!!

... as long as LeBron wants him.

It seems like a perfect fit -- after all, the dude had a cameo on "The Young and the Restless" in 2006 ... and Luke's tight with Hollywood big shot Jeffrey Katzenberg (they were leaving Craig's together when we shot Luke last night).

So ... will Bron pick up the phone and call Luke? Who knows? But, one thing's for sure ... you can cross David Blatt off your list.

Sean Patrick Thomas Kylie's Doing it Wrong ... Put Breast Milk on That Cereal!!!

9/20/2018 9:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner passing on milk in her cereal makes total sense to Sean Patrick Thomas and Aonika Laurent, but they have a new, healthier, recommendation for her next bowl. 

We got the "Save the Last Dance" star and his wife Wednesday night leaving Craig's in WeHo, and asked if Kylie's no-milk rule -- until this week, she claims -- is unique, or just a thing among millennials. They say it's not uncommon ... their own kids aren't down with the moo juice either. 

SPT had a few explanations for the no-milk trend, but Aonika offered a great alternative -- straight from the boob! Before you shoot it down ... watch the video. Aonika might have a point.

As for kids who avoid milk in cereal to dodge dirty dishes -- these parents have a word of advice. Suck it up and wash a bowl! 

Kaepernick's Attorney Hints Raiders and Pats Interested ... 'Stay Tuned'

9/20/2018 6:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Colin Kaepernick and Tom Brady ... on the same team???

That seems to be the suggestion coming from Colin's attorney, Mark Geragos -- who's teasing to TMZ Sports that two NFL teams could be interested in signing the QB. 

"I would just say, 'Stay tuned' ... that next week there may be some news."

Our guy pushed to get more information -- and Geragos started dropping hints about the 2 teams. 

The first clue obviously points to the Oakland Raiders. 

"I'll say this ... if Al Davis was still alive."

The interesting part of that comment -- Al's son, Mark Davis, took over the Raiders when his father passed away ... and Mark recently told us he thought it was a good idea for Nike to sign Kaep. 

The other clue was a little more abstruse, but he suggests Patriots owner Robert Kraft could be interested in Colin. 

There's more to the clip ... Geragos also says Colin and his girlfriend, Nessa, are NOT boycotting the NFL. They're watching games (they're fans) and they're supporting players like Kenny Stills

Geragos also clears up some misinformation about Colin's deal with Nike -- confirming what TMZ Sports already told you ... he is FOR SURE getting his own shoe as part of his deal with the Swoosh.

Katt Williams I'm Heading to 'Build-A-Bitch' ... Looking for a New GF!!!

9/20/2018 7:51 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Katt Williams is giving "cruising the mall for chicks" a whole new meaning.

We got the comedian at the Westfield Mall Wednesday in Culver City -- our photog, Charlie, was also there and happened to bump into him. He had to convince Katt he was a legit TMZ employee.

Anyway, it all got pretty hilarious when Charlie asked what Katt was shopping for in the mall. It wasn't clothes, shoes or accessories. Think Build-A-Bear ... but for adults.

You just gotta see how it played out, especially when some young fans walked up to Katt for a photo. Don't worry, he keeps it clean for the kids.

Katt's ripping a page from Lil Wayne's playbook -- 'cause he ain't got no worries days after getting chased by an angry, gun-toting husband in the ATL.
