Stormy Daniels About the Suspect Sketch ... I Might Be Banging That Dude!

4/18/2018 7:00 AM PDT
Breaking News

There's a good reason Stormy Daniels nailed the description of the man she says threatened her way back in 2011 ... 'cause he looks exactly like the guy sleeping next to her!

Look, we're not saying Stormy's husband, Brendon Miller, IS the guy who warned her to back off Trump -- we're just saying she might have gotten a little confused while talking to the sketch artist. 

Fact is, the suspect sketch IS a dead ringer for Brendon ... the porn actor who married Stormy in 2010, mind you. So, he was on the scene when the alleged threat went down in Las Vegas.

Naturally, Stormy's archenemy, Prez Trump ain't buying anything about the sketch. 

Anyway, looks like Tom Brady's got company if cops ever do a lineup. 

Method Man & Ghostface Killah Teach James Comey About C.R.E.A.M. Where's Our Damn Album?!!

4/18/2018 7:52 AM PDT

Wu-Tang Clan's next collab is gonna be really weird ... is what we'd say if this pic with ex-FBI Director James Comey was taken anywhere near a recording studio.

Thankfully, Ghostface Killah and Method Man were just backstage at the 'Late Show' Tuesday when they ran into Comey. Truth is, Meth and Ghostface have some pressing biz with Comey's old boss ... and might have hit him up for advice.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions currently has custody of Wu-Tang's album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" ... which the feds seized from Martin Shkreli.

We're guessing Comey told 'em he's not exactly tight with his old crew at the Justice Dept. 

Sorry, 'fellas .. I got canned.

'Spy Kids: Mission Critical' Star I Voice a Black Character But It's All Good, I'm Super Urban!

4/18/2018 7:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of the stars of Netflix's new animated 'Spy Kids' show says it's fine that he's a white dude voicing a black character ... in part because he's lived in motels and raps a lot.

We got Travis Turner Tuesday night at Craig's in WeHo and asked if he was worried about backlash from the African-American community over him playing a black character named PSI in "Spy Kids: Mission Critical," which officially debuts this Friday. 

HELL TO THE NO, DAWG ... is pretty much Travis' response here, as he explains how he grew up "urban" by living in motels -- plus he says he makes music with black artists, including Snoop, apparently ... and even sponsors black kids. So it's all good, according to him. 

Travis goes on to blame social media for so much division when it comes to race ... and then gives us a taste of his rapping and voice from the show. Brace yourselves.

'It' Kid Stars Sequel Pays More Than Double ... For Young Bill and Beverly!!!

4/18/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A couple of the young stars of last summer's blockbuster "It" have big paydays coming their way for 'Chapter Two' of the horror franchise ... according to their contracts.

The docs, obtained by TMZ, show that Jaeden Lieberher -- who plays young Bill -- banked $100,000 for the 2017 film ... plus a $35k box office bonus. Sophia Lillis -- who plays young Beverly -- hauled in $65,000 for her role.

But get this ... for the upcoming sequel, both young actors will earn more than double their pay -- $250k with a probable $70k bonus for Jaeden, and $150k for Sophia ... according to the docs.

This is huge, especially considering it's widely reported the second installment of "It" will feature future versions of the kids played by adult actors when it's released in 2019 ... so screen time for Jaeden and Sophia could be much less.

More pay for less work is always a good thing, though, right?

Dwayne Johnson Try My New Tequila And Mix It On The Rock(s)!!

4/18/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dwayne Johnson's finally got an answer to what The Rock is cooking ... tequila!!

Dwayne's company filed docs -- and obtained by TMZ -- to lock down the name "Mana" and slap it on tequila bottles. It pays to be in the tequila biz. Just ask these guys.

Dwayne's professed his love for the Mexican liquor in the past ... saying when it comes to booze on cheat days, his preferred spirit is tequila.

And speaking of spirit ... it's what "Mana" means in the Polynesian culture Dwayne grew up in. "Mana" is richly embedded in Dwayne's life, even in his tattoos. The gigantic bull tattoo on his arm, Dwayne says, epitomizes the term. He broke down its symbolism in an August 2017 post.

Dwayne included #TheMana in that post, but here's how he ended it -- #NowLetsBreakOutTheTequila.

Ditto!

Evolution of the bull. Blood, sweat & years. After 3 sessions and 22hrs of tattooing with world renowned @NikkoHurtado, the story's almost done.. Every detail is a reflection of my own personal history. From the cracks and heavy damage in the bone representing life's hard lessons I've learned over the years. Just like scars and wrinkles - I'm so grateful to have 'em because they're earned. To the horns, not pointing up or out to the side, but pointing straight ahead representing relentless energy and forward progress. The core and anchor of this image is in the eye. Look closely and you'll find the life, energy, power and you'll feel the MANA (spirit). The eye tells the story of a disruptive positive energy always ready to dent the universe. Depending on the light and angle, sometimes the energy's subtle and sometimes it's glaring. But it's always alive and ready to disrupt the universe and love and protect my family and all things I love with intense passion and gratitude. Cheers to living, learning, evolving and growing. And to the positive disrupters ready to dent the universe. #EvolutionOfTheBull #TheDisrupter #TheMana #NowLetsBreakOutTheTequila

Danielle Bregoli Backs Cardi and Shades Nicki For Billboard Awards

4/18/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Bregoli says she's already winning by being nominated by Billboard Music Awards as the Top Rap Female Artist with Cardi B and Nicki Minaj.

We got Danielle -- who goes by Bhad Bhabie in the music world -- on the heels of her being nominated for the prestigious award Tuesday along with arguably 2 of the biggest rappers in the game right now, and she was feeling pretty confident.

Danielle thinks she's the real winner at the end of the day -- the kid's just 15 years old, after all -- even though she concedes Cardi will probably walk away with the actual trophy. She explains why by taking multiple shots at Nicki ... and it ain't pretty, just petty.

Our photog also asked her about her fight with Woah Vicky and Lil Tay. As the big and bhad like to say ... no comment.  

Lamar Odom Getting Swole at Gold's Gym ... Comeback in the Works?

4/18/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

It looks like Lamar Odom could be gearing up for a return to the hardwood ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

No, Lamar ain't crushin' it on the court ... but it's pretty clear the ex-Lakers star was getting back in game shape at the Gold's Gym in Glendale, L.A. earlier this week.

In the video, Odom hits the weights like a boss -- pumping out sets on his bis, tris and shoulders under the close watch of an apparent personal trainer.

Yeah, we know it ain't exactly "Rocky" ... but it's a great sign considering we've only really seen Lamar partying since he left rehab.

Remember -- L.O. first expressed interest in joining the Cube's BIG3 league last summer ... and just a couple months ago, told us he wanted in THIS SEASON to honor his late friend, Rasual Butler.

Better keep droppin' sweat, bro -- Season 2 tips off in June!

Barbara Bush Dead at 92

4/17/2018 4:42 PM PDT
Breaking News

Barbara Bush -- former First Lady of the United States and wife of 41st President George H.W. Bush -- has died.

The former First Lady died at her home Tuesday surrounded by her family. She had suffered from congestive heart failure and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Barbara decided herself when it was time to go, telling her doctors Sunday she chose to decline medical treatment in favor of comfort care.

Both Barbara and George were hospitalized in Houston in early 2017 for various health issues, but she was spry and all smiles with her husband for the Super Bowl 51 coin toss a month later.

Barbara served as First Lady from 1989 to 1993, but also as Second Lady for the 8 years during the Reagan administration. She was known for working to make advancements in universal literacy, and founded the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy.

She's survived by her husband, 4 sons -- including George W. and Jeb Bush -- a daughter ... 17 grandchildren and 7 great grandkids. 

The White House released a statement shortly after the announcement of her passing, saying, "She will be long remembered for her strong devotion to country and family, both of which she served unfailingly well. The President and First Lady's thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Mrs. Bush."

Barbara was 92.

RIP

EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton says she loves Khloe Kardashian and wishes her the very best ... and has some words of wisdom for Tristan Thompson if he ever wants to get her back.

We got Paris and her sister Nicky in nearly matching dresses on Rodeo Dr. in Bev Hills Tuesday afternoon, and while Paris has some strong advice for Tristan on how to treat Khloe ... she holds back on the other way around.

Check it out -- Paris looks like she wants to speak up, but ultimately decides to just talk up her man instead ... while lending strong support to Khloe, too.

As you may know, Paris is engaged to actor Chris Zylka and clearly believes he's a better man than Tristan ... but they still have prenup ... just in case.

Accounting firm Weinberg & Co. claims it provided tax and accounting services for Dr. Laura from February 2009 through January 31, 2016.

According to the docs ... Dr. Laura racked up a bill for $71,013 over that time and has refused to make good.

Chester Cheetah Mrs. Cheetah Files for Divorce ... Hold the Cheese, Please

4/17/2018 4:09 PM PDT
Breaking News

It ain't easy being Mrs. Cheesy, apparently ... because the guy who voices Chester Cheetah is getting divorced.

Maral Leadbeater filed her divorce petition Tuesday in Los Angeles, officially calling it quits from Adam Leadbeater ... best known as the voice of the Cheetos mascot. The docs are pretty straightforward ... Maral cites irreconcilable differences, and says their date of separation was April 15. Tax day can be a bitch.

They were married for 2 and a half years and have no little cheetah cubs at home.

According to the docs, Maral is not asking for spousal support, and she doesn't want to pay either. One thing she does want is her maiden name back -- 'cause Derohanessian beats Leadbetter any day?

It's not spelled out, but she's gotta be demanding some way to get that damn orange dust off her belongings.
