John Cena WWE Could Have a Transgender Wrestler ... with the Right Story

3/22/2018 6:59 AM PDT

John Cena says the WWE doesn't discriminate if you got chops in the ring and on the mic ... so if the right transgender wrestler were to come through, he'd be all for it.

We got on the topic by asking Cena about intergender matches -- which have become more of a thing lately with the Mixed Match Challenge ... and Ronda Rousey tossin' Triple H through a damn table!!

Since the 16-time world champ was down with it, we asked if a transgender competitor could be next -- and John didn't bat an eye.

"I'm a storyteller, my friend -- and that's what we do in WWE," Cena told TMZ Sports leaving Mastro's in L.A. "It's not segregated to sex, race, creed, religion, any of that -- so as long as the story's good, it belongs in WWE."

FYI, JC's still the #1 guy in WWE right now ... so this is a big deal.

Model Danielle Knudson A (Tan) Line in the Sand? Yeah, No ...

3/22/2018 7:24 AM PDT

Danielle Knudson did an oceanside photo shoot for H&M -- but we're not sure what the hell she's advertising ... besides her half-naked body all covered in sand.

The Canadian model hit up a beach in Tulum, Mexico Wednesday for a shoot with the beleaguered Swedish retail company, where she started off in a 2-piece bikini, and ended up topless ... layered with sand ... and on top of some very lucky dude. 

We imagine they were showing off some of H&M's swim line -- but it's anyone's guess with how much skin is showing here. At least it ain't "monkey in the jungle" Winter wear again. 

Fun fact: it's officially Spring ... which means we're coming up on bikini season! Not-so-fun fact: Danielle is taken ... damn.

Bozo No No OG Clown Dead at 89

Breaking News

Send in THE clown ... to God.

Frank Avruch, TV's original Bozo the Clown, died Tuesday in Boston after a long battle with heart disease ... according to his family. He was 89.

The Boston legend created Bozo back in 1959, and played the lovable clown until 1970. Although Frank wore a lot of hats -- as a local host on radio and WCVB-TV -- he'll most be remembered for wearing that red-orange wig, oversized red shoes and pajamas with the frilly collar.

Avruch is an inductee of the National Television Academy's Gold Circle. Bozo's survived by his wife Betty, 2 sons, grandchildren, and, of course, his cousin Homey. 

After Frank had the role some other clown, Larry Harmon, slipped into Bozo's famous getup. Harmon died in 2008.

Have a great time under the Big Top, St. Peter.

In this third (and hopefully) final installment of "Justin Bieber struggles backing out his Lamborghini," we find out how many people it takes to pull off a 5-point turn.

Justin was worshiping Wednesday night at Saban Theatre in Bev Hills ... where once again he decided driving his Lambo was the way to go. Ciara and Russell Wilson also showed up, and Justin parked his whip behind theirs.

As service ended, Justin's struggles were about to begin. You see Justin trying to map out how to back out of a driveway that's truly been a thorn in his side.

Check it out ... paps cheer on the Biebs, who clearly needs it. At least his Lambo didn't take another beating

Lil Xan Brings 'Shameless' Doppelganger Out Onstage

3/22/2018 7:11 AM PDT

Rapper Lil Xan made the crowd at his L.A. show see double, and prescription drugs had noting to do with it ... it was all about his celebrity look-alike, Ethan Cutkosky

Seriously, the "Shameless" star is a dead ringer for the Cali rapper ... and on Wednesday night they shared the stage. If not for the face tattoos, the crowd would've really been confused.

Xan surprised his fans by bringing Ethan out while he performed his new cut, "The Man" ... which is off his upcoming album, "Total Xanarchy."

We got the rapper recently in N.Y., and he told us he and the actor are real life homies. Xan said he has plans to work with Ethan in the near future, and based on how the crowd reacted to their onstage debut together ... these guys should make it happen soon.

Just sayin' ...


The Weeknd Caught Shooting New Music Vid ... In Prep for Coachella

3/22/2018 12:50 AM PDT

The Weeknd whipped a small California town into a frenzy when he shut down streets to shoot a music vid, which turns out ... should be out right before Coachella.

Production sources tell TMZ ... the singer took over tiny Taft, California -- about 120 miles northwest of L.A. -- last week to film the vid for his new single. It looks like it will feature Abel riding on some sort of hoverboard ... which is pretty badass. 

We're guessing the new track will be released next month before The Weeknd takes the stage at Coachella, where he's headlining the Friday night shows. 

The new song will be his first solo joint since he released his "Starboy" album in 2016.

And when he sings it ... the Taft folk can tell their story. 

Robert Trump My Brother's a Godsend for Women, Minorities

3/22/2018 6:24 AM PDT

Donald Trump's brother, Robert, thinks the President is answering the dreams of women and minorities.

We got Robert Trump at LAX early Thursday and our photog posed the question .... why does DJT attack women and minorities? He takes issue but doesn't get specific.

And then there's Stormy Daniels. Robert Trump calls it "nonsense" and says the President is focusing on important work and has no time for silly things. Apparently Robert didn't see that his brother challenged Joe Biden to a fight.

Self-Driving Uber Crash Dash Cam Video Released ... 'Disturbing, Heartbreaking'

3/22/2018 6:30 AM PDT

Video of a self-driving Uber hitting and killing a pedestrian was released this week -- and the footage is shocking.

Arizona authorities released dash cam video of the accident Wednesday night, which shows the moment a self-driving Uber SUV slams into a woman crossing the street with her bike -- with a would-be driver clearly distracted at the wheel.

The "driver" was Rafaela Vasquez, and you can see she's got her head down from the interior angle as the car eventually strikes the victim ... 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg. The exterior shot does not show the moment of impact.

Herzberg died from her injuries, and Uber suspended further testing of their self-driving vehicles, while also releasing a statement saying the accident was "disturbing and heartbreaking to watch." They say they're cooperating with authorities in an investigation.

Bobby V Suspect in Georgia Rape Case

3/22/2018 12:40 AM PDT

Bobby V is listed as the suspect in a rape that allegedly happened last weekend, according to cops now investigating ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the R&B singer was named by a woman who filed a police report in Cobb County, GA early Monday, March 19. We're told the alleged rape occurred Sunday. It's unclear where or what the circumstances were. We do know Bobby lives in the area.

Cops say they have an open investigation into the case, so they're keeping details under wraps for now.

Bobby's rep tells us they are pursuing legal action "against what appears to be a weak yet calculated attempt to obtain financial gain through ulterior motives in the matter." The rep did not say the alleged victim requested money directly from Bobby, but called her version of events an apparent false report.

The rep added, "Bobby takes any allegation against women very seriously. However, false allegations damage true victims of sexual abuse." 

You'll recall ... Bobby claimed he was the victim of an extortion plot last year, when a video surfaced online of him allegedly skipping out on a prostitute without paying.

Austin Bomber Mark Conditt Recorded 25-Min 'Confession' Before Killing Self

3/21/2018 6:32 PM PDT

Austin bomber Mark Conditt recorded a 25-minute video on his phone confessing to the crimes before he was killed by his own explosive device ... according to cops.

Austin PD Chief Brian Manley says they've recovered a recording from Conditt that he would classify as a confession. On the video, Manley says the suspected bomber describes the 6 bombs in very specific detail. 

The recording is described as an "outcry of a very challenged young man talking about challenges in his personal life," but Manley says it doesn't mention anything about terrorism or anything about hate.

We broke the story ... Conditt had made hateful comments about homosexuality on several blogs in the past, and also railed on abortion.

Police say Conditt is responsible for the string of bombings that left 2 dead.

Tarek El Moussa Sues Realtor You Swindled Me Outta $35k!!!

3/22/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Tarek El Moussa got swindled out of $35k by a crooked realtor who later got his ass arrested for doing the exact same thing to others ... so claims Tarek, who's suing the realtor to get his jack back.

The "Flip or Flop" star is going after Mario Gonzalez and MCR Realty ... claiming, in docs obtained by TMZ, he struck a deal in April 2014 to buy a house in Cypress, CA. Tarek, however, says he grew suspicious after Gonzalez told him to wire a $35k deposit, but reluctantly agreed to wire the cash.

Things went south from there. Tarek says Gonzalez went radio silent for months, so he went to cops. Tarek says he later learned Gonzalez had been arrested. We checked ... and Gonzalez was arrested by the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. in December 2016 for grand theft.

Gonzalez also had his real estate license revoked. Tarek's suing for his $35k plus damages.

Mick Foley 100% Supporting Kane For Mayor Even Though He's a Republican

3/22/2018 12:20 AM PDT

Mick Foley says he so believes in his old WWE partner Kane's Mayoral run, that he's willing to stump for the guy personally, even though they're from two different parties.

Kane (real name Glenn Jacobs) is running for mayor in Knox County, Tennessee ... and he's getting a big help from his old running buddy, Mick -- who told TMZ Sports why Jacobs is the man for the job.

"One of the wisest, best read, most well-read, compassionate people I've ever met."

Foley says he feels like public service is Glenn's true calling ... which is why Mick is campaigning for Kane at an event in Tennessee -- despite him being a democrat, and the Big Red Machine being a republican.

"He's a republican, and I'm not, and that doesn't really matter. He's an honorable man and a great person, and he wouldn't be doing this if he didn't think he could do a great job for the people of Knox County."

We also talked to the WWE HOF'er about the wrestling bombshell of the week -- Daniel Bryan's return to the squared circle.
