Miranda Kerr Forks Over $8.1M in Jewels Tied to Malaysia Money Laundering Probe

6/27/2017 6:37 AM PDT

Miranda Kerr just forked over millions of dollars worth of jewelry to the U.S. government because someone may have bought them for her with stolen overseas money.

Miranda surrendered $8.1 million in jewels to the U.S. Justice Department Friday from her safe-deposit box in L.A. The jewels were given to her by a Malaysian financier ... allegedly with ill-gotten money.

International lawsuits have been filed alleging the cash was illegally taken from a Malaysian sovereign-wealth fund, and that some of the money was used to buy gifts for various celebs ... including Miranda and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Leo just handed over some of his prized possessions -- including an Oscar won by Marlon Brando that was gifted to him. He surrendered the goods a couple weeks ago, the result of the same probe.

Neither celeb was named as a defendant in the lawsuits.

Rick Ross B.P.F. (Blowing Pounds Fast!)

6/27/2017 6:56 AM PDT

Rick Ross is almost unrecognizable ... save for his trademark beard and tats.

Da Boss was looking like a man in charge Monday at LAX as he flaunted a seriously slimmer physique. He was flanked by his entourage as he headed to security.

The rapper, who has reportedly lost around 100 pounds, credits CrossFit for his transformation. And in true Rozay fashion ... he dubbed the popular regimen as RossFit.

Props for not only sticking to it ... but for taking the healthy route.

Taylor Swift Bizarre Congrats to Russell Westbrook ... Who She's Never Met

6/27/2017 6:30 AM PDT
Breaking News

This is weird and fun ...

Taylor Swift just made a congratulations video for newly crowned NBA MVP Russell Westbrook joking with the guy like they've been buddies for years -- even though they've never met.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star got the award Monday night -- and hours later, Taylor released the video saying, "Russell, it’s Taylor. Remember? I was the one who taught you how to play basketball?"

She jokes that she taught him everything he knows about basketball ... he gave her the idea for "Shake It Off" ... and that they go back 20 years.

She then admits they've actually never hung out together once. 

Kinda funny. Kinda weird. Kinda sweet.

What's interesting ... Taylor really hasn't done any public interviews or appearances since February -- so this is sorta like her reintroduction to the spotlight. Who'da thunk she woulda used the NBA as a way in?

Who cares ... welcome back!

Michelle, Sasha, Malia So Right ... Sarong

6/27/2017 6:12 AM PDT

The Obama women were out in full force Monday in Bali ... sarong-in' it up.

The ladies, along with Barack, took a tour of the Tirta Empul Temple during their latest stop on what seems to be a global vacay. Previous stops include various cities in Italy, Virgin Islands, Tahiti, Scotland, and Palm Springs ... if that counts. 

Life doesn't get much better. Barack and Michelle are scoring $60 mil for their memoirs, his popularity has soared since leaving office, and the fam is tight.

Meek Mill Warned Safaree Stay Away from BET Awards

6/27/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill fired a warning shot but Safaree Samuels didn't care ... and that's why he got his ass kicked.

We're told Meek's crew delivered the message days before the BET Awards weekend kicked off in L.A. The message was simple -- stay yo ass away or else. Our Safaree sources tell us he didn't flinch when he heard the threat and wasn't gonna be a punk and hide out.

TMZ broke the story ... Meek's crew jumped and attacked Safaree Friday. Nicki Minaj's 2 exes had shown up almost around the same time to DJ Khaled's pre-BET party at Penthouse in WeHo when it went down.

We're told the beef at this point is way beyond Nicki ... it's gotten personal following the exchange of verbal jabs for more than a year. Meek has denied he was involved in the latest showdown.

But a boiling point's clearly been reached -- cause Safaree's now challenged Meek to a fight.

Stay tuned ... 

LaVar Ball The Shirt Comes Way Off At WWE Raw!!!

6/26/2017 6:55 PM PDT

LaVar Ball got really into his appearance at WWE Raw ... seeing how he took off his shirt and flexed for all of America Monday night.

LaVar was facing off against The Miz in the ring, and as soon as the wrestler mentioned he was the Michael Jordan of WWE ... LaVar was up and shouting. Nothing like a little MJ talk to get the Mr. Ball rolling.

At first, he tries to get his son, LaMelo, to handle the situation -- but Miz gets right in his face for some classic trash talk. Then Miz loses his shirt ... and LaVar does the same. 

It's sure to go down in WWE history ... just check out those pecs. 

Oscar De La Hoya Extends Olive Branch ... In War With Dana White

6/27/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Make no mistake about it, Oscar De La Hoya is still pissed Dana White scheduled his superfight 3 weeks before Canelo vs. GGG ... but he's just taken the first step in repairing their friendship.

Long story short ... De La Hoya says White broke a very serious unwritten rule between fight promoters -- a rule everyone from Don King to Bob Arum hold sacred. 

But despite their feud over the McGregor vs. Mayweather fight -- De La Hoya tells TMZ Sports he still "loves" Dana and even made a pretty solid peace offering. 

No word if Dana will accept ... he's still pretty pissed too. 

'Power Rangers' Star They Made My Power Axe Real ... Lemme Get One!

6/27/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The original Black Ranger from "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" can't believe someone made his TV weapon into a real-life killing instrument ... and now he wants his own.

We got Walter Jones Monday at LAX, where our photog asked what he thought about the show "Man at Arms" ... recreating his character's Power Axe (which doubled for a gun on TV). 

Walter's all about it, but not completely surprised it got done. It is 2017, after all -- the tech these days is pretty wild. As he puts it ... making an axe-blaster is high on the doable list.

We also ask what his weapon of choice would be in a real battle ... let's just say Walt's old school.

'Bachelorette' Rachel Lindsay 187-Foot Noisy Make Out Sesh ... All While Rappelling

6/26/2017 6:23 PM PDT

Rachel Lindsay is putting herself out there for love on "The Bachelorette" -- literally, she's hanging 187 feet in the air for it ... where make out sessions are NOT off limits.

Rachel went rappelling off a super high structure in Oslo, Norway with suave contestant Bryan Abasolo during Monday night's episode -- and on the way down, they took a break to suck a little face ... very, very loudly.

Bryan's built a rep this season as one to smack his lips while kissing Rachel ... but as you can see, she's pretty into it. And into him, for that matter.

Leslie Jones Screw the Ritz! 'They Don't Like Black People'

6/26/2017 5:46 PM PDT

Leslie Jones ain't putting on the Ritz -- she's pissed about the service she got at L.A.'s Ritz-Carlton, and fired back at the hotel the same way Kanye West did George Dubya.

Fresh off hosting the BET Awards in downtown L.A. -- right next to the Ritz -- Leslie implored her 693,000 followers to NOT stay there, claiming "THEY DONT LIKE BLACK PEOPLE!!"

Unclear what exactly happened to set her off, but the Ritz responded to Leslie's tweet with ... "@Lesdoggg We're sorry to hear this. We pride ourselves on providing excellent service to all. Please DM us & we'll look into this right away."

We've reached out to her rep, but haven't heard back.
