Boosie Bro Off the Hook For Alleged Bank Siphoning

10/16/2017 9:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Boosie's brother is dodging serious potential jail time for allegedly stealing more than $300k from his famous sibling, but the big question ... WHY??

The D.A. in charge of Taquari Hatch's case has refused to file charges against him -- despite cops busting him for allegedly siphoning $361,000 from Boosie's account.

We broke the story ... Taquari was booked for identity theft and fraud charges after cops claimed he posed as Boosie to authorize multiple wire transfers. Taquari had always maintained he was innocent ... and it now seems the D.A. agrees -- or at least feels the evidence wasn't strong enough.

We've reached out to the D.A.'s office for clarification on why Taquari is walking away scot-free ... so far, no word back.

Boxing Star Cecilia Braekhus Kissed By Opponent ... During Face-Off

10/16/2017 10:03 AM PDT
Breaking News

Yeah -- that's a pretty effective way of promoting a fight.

Earlier today in Norway, undefeated boxing star Cecilia Braekhus was facing off with Sweden's Mikaela Lauren for their upcoming fight ... when Mikaela decided to show Cecilia some love (literally).

Hard to say if it was mind games or if Mikaela just thinks Cecilia's hot ... either way, that was a serious lip-lock.

Cecilia shoved her face in shock, but took the kiss like a champ -- laughing off the gesture and even thanking her future opponent for giving her some sugar.

T.I. to Nelly 'Put That Bulls*** Behind You!!!'

10/16/2017 8:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nelly is a king who should focus on being great again -- that's his pal, T.I.'s advice on the heels of Nelly's rape accuser refusing to testify.

Nelly performed in South Florida this weekend ... his first gig since getting arrested in Washington for rape. The after-party went down at Rockwell Nightclub, at around 3 AM Sunday he got onstage with T.I. ... who made it clear where he stands on the allegation against Nelly.

Earlier, Nelly performed at The Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach. The performance came just one day after his rape accuser said she was refusing to testify against him, and wants the matter dropped.

This look on Nelly's face during the show seems to say it all -- I'm moving on!

Harvey Weinstein to Howard Stern Producers Don't Get Sex with Stars Like the Good Ole Days

10/16/2017 7:07 AM PDT

Howard Stern asked Harvey Weinstein a question about having sex with Hollywood actresses that was eerily dead-on ... and Weinstein lied right to his face.

Howard pulled up the 2014 interview Monday morning on his show. In the clip Howard asks Weinstein if he ever got to experience "the mogul aspect" -- meaning having actresses throw themselves at him for a shot at Oscar-winning roles.

Weinstein denied having any such opportunity ... then Howard rephrased, "You can't walk into the room, pull your pants off and say 'Okay, honey let's talk business.'"

It's pretty much exactly the scene dozens of Weinstein's accusers have described. Makes ya think Howard had heard what was Hollywood's worst-kept secret. From Seth MacFarlane's 2013 Oscar nominations joke to Courtney Love ... the allegations were hardly under wraps at that point.

Weinstein claimed he didn't do it, but said others in showbiz were still scoring sexual favors.

Mark Salling Cut His Wrists Before Plea Bargain

10/16/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Salling hurt himself in a suicide attempt a month and a half before striking a plea deal in his child porn case ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the "Glee" star was in the bedroom of his L.A. area home on August 22 when he cut both of his wrists. We're told Mark "freaked out" and screamed for his roommate, who discovered him bleeding and called 911.

Paramedics rushed to the home where they treated Mark, put him in an ambulance and took him to the hospital.

We're told Mark was taken for psychiatric evaluation, and days later, was taken to a rehab facility for psychological issues.

Mark's arms are scarred, which is apparently why he's been wearing long sleeves in the Los Angeles heat.

As we reported, Salling copped a plea in his child porn case earlier this month ... a case that was filed after cops found more than 50,000 images of child porn and child erotica on his personal computer.

The prosecution recommended 4 to 7 years in prison under the plea deal. The judge has yet to impose a sentence.

Mark's lawyer denies the story but will not say which details are incorrect, adding, "Mark is physically fine and Mark is spending his time atoning and working on himself."

Liam Payne No Time For News ... I'm A Dad On Diaper Duty!

10/16/2017 6:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Liam Payne isn't up on current events because he's been too busy changing diapers and ain't ashamed to admit it.

We got the One Direction-er leaving Catch Sunday night. He and 'X Factor (UK)' judge Cheryl Cole welcomed their first kid, Bear, in March.

Liam didn't have much to say when it came to the recent Harvey Weinstein headlines and the tasteless joke his pal and late night host, James Corden, made at a recent LA charity gig about him. For those who missed it, Corden joked that watching Weinstein in hot water all week had been weird, and then threw the punchline "Ask any of the women who watched him take a bath, it's weird." Corden's since apologized.

Liam steered clear of the controversies but gave his 2 cents on being a proper dad. Sounds like he's got his hands full.

10/16/2017 6:39 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mark Cuban just got a ringing endorsement for President from old pal Daymond John ... who couldn't stop singing the guy praises.

We got Daymond outside Craig's Sunday night where the baller "Shark Tank" star ran down a list of reasons why he's hopping on the "Cuban for President" train. Remember ... Mark's seriously flirting with the idea, and if Trump can win, anything's possible.

Check it out ... Daymond says Mark's innate ability to relate and care about people makes him the perfect candidate. It's so eloquently said he's now got us thinking ... Daymond for Veep?!

'Black-ish' Star Deon Cole 'To Kill a Mockingbird' Ban Sorry Ass Attempt to Wipe Our History

10/16/2017 7:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Black-ish" star Deon Cole is FUMING after learning "To Kill a Mockingbird" was banned in the South and makes no bones about it -- it's a blatant attack on African-American history.

We got Deon at LAX where we told him about about the ban that went down in Biloxi, Mississippi where the school board there removed the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic from its reading list because the language -- littered with N-words as it was set in the 1930s -- made people uncomfortable.

But Deon's calling BS ... saying banning the book is a clear attempt to cleanse American history.

Gerard Butler No Calm Before 'Geostorm' Hospitalized After Chopper Crash

10/16/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gerard Butler was hospitalized after he says he got run off the road and took a bad spill on his bike.

Sources close to Butler tell TMZ ... he was riding his motorcycle in L.A. when he got cut off by a car, causing him to crash. Someone called 911, paramedics came and took Gerard to a nearby hospital where he was treated for his injuries. Lucky for him ... no broken bones ... just cuts and bruises.

Lucky for Gerard he's not laid up. His climate change disaster flick, "Geostorm," comes out next week, and he's able to promote it like usual, despite being a little banged up.

Jason Derulo Burglary Employee Slept While Safe Smashed And $680k Got Jacked

10/16/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jason Derulo's home burglary is looking less like a random crime and more like the perps had some help ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the suspected burglars pried a door open to get into Derulo's pad last month, and made a beeline for his safe. We're told they beat the crap out of it, got it open and escaped -- all while one of JD's employees slept in the house.

Cops say about $600k in jewelry and about $80k in cash were taken. Now, to be fair, we're told Rip Van Winkle -- aka the employee -- was dozing pretty far away from the smashed safe. Jason's got a big crib.

Still, we're told cops suspect an inside job.

Breaking News

4:56 PM PT -- Colin's lawyer, Mark Geragos, released a statement saying ... "We can confirm that this morning we filed a grievance under the CBA on behalf of Colin Kaepernick. This was done only after pursuing ever possible avenue with all NFL teams and their executives." The statement goes on to say Colin shouldn't be punished for his peaceful protest, and that he just wants to get back to playing.

Kaepernick has also hired celeb attorney Mark Geragos for representation as opposed to going through the NFL Players Association.

As we reported ... Kaep's protest has ignited a national debate about kneeling for the flag. 

Taylor Swift On a London Bridge ... That's Filming Now

10/15/2017 3:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift is back in action ... doing a music video in the UK.

Taylor was spotted filming a new video in London Saturday night, where she shot around a few different sets "Green Eggs and Ham" style ... on a double-decker bus, in a cab and on a bike atop the Millennium Bridge.

She's rumored to have been spending time in London recently -- even reportedly hosting a secret listening session for fans there to hear her new album, "Reputation," over the weekend.

Looks like the city's grown on her enough to wanna shoot there ... but not enough to be fully out in the open. You see her trying to avoid cameras with her crew ... and on the move. 

Until the next T-Swift sighting ...
