'Frasier' Star John Mahoney Cause of Death Brain Disease, Lung Cancer

2/7/2018 12:01 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

John Mahoney's death was caused by multiple health complications, which included brain disease and lung cancer.

Our sources say the "Frasier" star's official causes of death include brain disease, lung cancer and seizures. We're told Mahoney also suffered from kidney disease and diabetes.

We broke the story ... Mahoney died Sunday in Chicago while in hospice care.

Our sources say Mahoney was cremated.

Mahoney played Kelsey Grammer's cranky father, Martin Crane, for 11 seasons on the hit sitcom. Shortly after John's death, Grammer posted, "He was my father. I loved him."

He most recently had a recurring role starring on the TV show "Hot in Cleveland," which ended in 2014. He's also had appearances on movies like 'American President,' "Say Anything..." and "Eight Men Out" over the course of more than 30 years in the industry.

Tom Sizemore Ex-Neighbor Claims He's Tracking and Harassing Me

2/7/2018 11:59 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

10:27 AM PT -- Tom tells TMZ the restraining order is completely baseless and is only an attempt to keep him from retrieving person property he still has at the house. Sizemore claims his landlord is selling his personal belongings. He continues, "I have a lot of projects I am working on and I will not let this false accusation hinder. Tom Sizemore's ex-neighbor says the actor pushed her to use drugs, and has it out for her ... according to new docs.

The neighbor, Lauren Abouyan, requested a restraining order Tuesday in L.A. County Court ... and in the docs she says Sizemore has tried to coax her into using drugs with him. She says although Tom's moved out of the neighborhood ... he still comes around to "harass" her.

Lauren claims he last showed up on Monday, and claims he continually follows her around and tries to be around her.

The judge granted her the restraining order, and Sizemore must now stay 100 yards away from her and cannot contact her.

2/7/2018 11:37 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Spice Girls have a major advantage leading up to their forthcoming reunion tour -- they can still hawk A LOT of gear bearing their name ... some of it old, but still new.

We did some digging, and it turns out the Spice Girls have a live trademark and exclusive rights to use their band name on a bunch of tour merch.

We broke the story ... the Spice Girls are planning to kick off a reunion tour by late summer that'll span across the UK and then the U.S. All 5 girls are involved.

Some stuff they can peddle includes your run-of-the-mill tour must-haves -- T-shirts, jackets, belts, books, binders and lots of other items like that. But get this ... the trademark is so old, they can also sell things like "cassette recorders," "compact disc players," and "video game joysticks."

They filed for this specific trademark back in 1997, and recently filed to renew it through 2023. Still ... they may want to add some of the latest technology.

These kids are WAY past the analog years ... and they have no problem telling you what they want ... what they really, REALLY want.

Logan Paul Fires Taser on Dead Rat

2/7/2018 9:30 AM PST

Logan Paul is dealing in death again -- this time it's a video of himself and a dead rat ... and a taser.

In the video, posted earlier this week on his YouTube channel, Paul and a couple of friends are getting rid of a dead rat they found on an outside deck -- and he decided it would be cool to shoot the carcass with a taser.

He later zaps the rat again after they toss it in a garbage bin.

Paul's still dealing with immense backlash for posting that video of a suicide victim in Japan -- and just last week he claimed to have remorse for that stunt.

So, does this new video jibe with that?

Quincy Jones Ivanka Trump Is a 'Fine Motherf*****!' I Used to Date Her, Y'know

2/7/2018 8:39 AM PST

Quincy Jones has made some bold dating claims lately, but this one takes the cake ... he says he used to date Ivanka Trump, who he remembers as being pretty damn hot.

The music legend says he and President Trump's daughter hooked up -- meaning, dated -- about 12 years ago after Tommy Hilfiger told him Ivanka wanted to have dinner with him.

He tells Vulture he jumped at the opportunity, telling Tommy ... "'No problem. She's a fine motherf*****.' She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though."

Q said he used to hang with Ivanka's dad too, but his memories were not nearly as fond -- "He's a crazy motherf***er. Limited mentally -- a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can't stand him."

84-year-old Quincy also recently claimed he turned down a date with Marilyn Monroe back in the day, 'cause she "had a chest that looked like pears."

Jared Fogle Judge Should Be Removed She Has Teenage Daughters

2/7/2018 6:28 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jared Fogle wants the judge in his child porn case recused, because he thinks she's prejudiced against him since she has teenage daughters.

Fogle filed legal docs seeking to have Judge Tanya Walton Pratt booted because the case partially involves a teenage prostitute and teenage girls being illegally photographed.

He's been trying to get his 15-year sentence set aside on grounds the judge wrongly allowed prosecutors to charge him with conspiracy. Fogle was also shut down by the same judge when he asked for early release last month.

Fogle, who had over 47,000 sexual images on his computer of young girls and also had sex with 2 underage girls, seems to be saying the judge harbors animus because of her daughters.

No ruling yet.  

Prez Trump This Blows!!! Hair Takes Loss in Wind

2/7/2018 6:40 AM PST

Mother Nature - 1
President Trump's hair - 0

A video of the Prez boarding Air Force One is, pardon the phrase, blowing up on the Internet and it's exposed a bizarre UFO situation.

Watch and try to explain what the hell is flying on top of Trump's head. There's always been a buzz about combovers in the front of his 'do -- but this video, shot earlier this month, proves there's more action 'round back.

Trump has long insisted he does NOT wear a wig, or any hairpiece, but the stiff breeze seemed to temporarily remove ALL the hair from the back of his head. 

And the wind cries ... WTF??!!
