Breaking News

Gregg Popovich's wife, Erin, has died ... according to a statement released by the San Antonio Spurs.

Erin died Wednesday, but the cause of death is unknown at this time. The news comes as a shock to players and fans -- although it's being reported she'd been ill for an extended period ... Coach Popovich hadn't said anything publicly.

Erin and Gregg were married for 4 decades and have 2 kids and 2 grandchildren.

Spurs GM R.C. Buford says, "We mourn the loss of Erin ... She was a strong, wonderful, kind, intelligent woman who provided love, support and humor to all of us."

The Spurs are scheduled to take on the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of their playoff series Thursday night in San Antonio. Kevin Durant was told the sad news at practice and was at a loss for words.

Erin was 67.

RIP

Kourtney Kardashian My 39th Bday is All About My Kids

4/18/2018 4:21 PM PDT

Kourtney Kardashian's ringing in her 39th birthday at a fancy Malibu restaurant, but she coulda gone to Chuck E. Cheese ... because she celebrated with all of her kids.

Kourtney had Mason, Penelope and Reign in tow as she left Taverna Tony Wednesday afternoon. Looks like Kourt and the fam enjoyed cupcakes during lunch, complete with candles ... although far less than 39 of 'em. Penelope got to do the honors.

She also got some bday love from new mom, Khloe ... who posted some fave shots of their sisterly adventures -- with the caption, "I can't imagine life without you!"

As we reported ... Kourt and the rest of the sisters flew to Cleveland to support Khloe during, and right after, she gave birth to True -- smack in the middle of Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal

You'd totally understand if she forgot to give Kourt a birthday shout out -- but the sisters got each other's backs.

Calvin Harris Sued by Blind Man Over Mega-Expensive Home Rental Deal

4/18/2018 3:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4/20 6:56 AM PT -- A rep for Calvin tells us, "The claims filed against Calvin Harris are absurd and without merit. We are confident that the Court will dismiss the frivolous lawsuit."Calvin Harris is being sued by a blind man who claims the DJ screwed him over in a super-expensive home deal.

Harry Moscatel claims he leased Harris' home above the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood last year for $35,000 a month. He put down a $70,000 security deposit and moved in ... according to the docs.

Moscatel's attorney, Scott Doonan, tells us ... the house had problems from the beginning, including hot water and heating issues, faulty doors and a sound system that never worked right.

We're told Moscatel and his family bailed on the home, and he now claims the lease agreement was invalid ... in part because he's a 79-year-old blind man and protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act. The lawsuit does not explain why his disability would allow him out of the lease.

The house was once the love nest of Calvin and Taylor Swift when the 2 were an item.

Moscatel makes other technical arguments about the lease and is asking a judge to declare it null and void. He's also preparing to sue Harris to get a portion of his rent and his security deposit back.

BTW ... Moscatel made news last year after a hoverboard caught fire and burned his multi-million-dollar mansion down. Presumably, that's why he rented Calvin's pad.

We reached out to Calvin's people, so far no word back.

Karen McDougal Settles National Enquirer Suit ... Free to Cash in on Trump!!!

4/18/2018 3:05 PM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-Playmate Karen McDougal is clear to spill the beans about her alleged affair with Donald Trump ... and, perhaps most importantly to her, make a ton o' money off it.

McDougal had sued the National Enquirer's parent company, American Media, over a non-disclosure agreement she signed with them in 2016. She got $150k and some promotional perks, and the Enquirer got her exclusive story about the 2006 affair with Trump. She sued to get out of the deal.

Well, they reached a settlement ... according to the New York Times, and is now allowed to talk all she wants about her Trump relationship. You'll recall, McDougal sat down with Anderson Cooper last month for a CNN special.

So, why does the settlement matter? It's pretty clear based on the terms, which include American Media getting $75k of any future profits Karen makes off selling the Trump story.

Start the countdown to Karen's tell-all book hitting stores -- but ya gotta wonder what's left for her to reveal. The NYT says she also gets to keep her $150k fee.

Florida Shooting Students Burning the Midnight Oil ... For Gun Control & School!!

4/18/2018 1:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Two familiar faces from March For Our Lives and the #NeverAgain movement need to start #NeverSleepingAgain 'cause juggling gun control rallies with high school ain't easy.

We got Marjory Stoneman Douglas High juniors Cameron Kasky and Jaclyn Corin Wednesday at LAX ... and it was clear life hasn't slowed down for them, nearly a month after the march in D.C.

For starters ... they're in L.A. to participate in the ABC special "WE Day California" ... a summit for student leaders that'll also feature renowned speakers and celebs. While seniors like David Hogg are nearly done with school ... Jaclyn and Cam are still knee-deep in their books. 

They both admitted it's creating a challenge for them, and other Parkland kids -- how to balance school work, while remaining active in their now national movement.

In part, they say it requires some very understanding teachers, but the rest of it's on them -- and one of 'em seems to be handling it better than the other.

Mobb Deep Sued Ex-Mgr Says He's the Shook One ... Group Owes Me $500k!!!

4/18/2018 2:22 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mobb Deep's huge success in the rap game came at the expense of the group's managers ... according to a massive lawsuit.

Buck 50 Productions says they managed the careers of Prodigy and Havoc from 2010 until Prodigy's death last summer -- and over that period the rappers racked up a serious tab. In the suit, Buck 50 says their team booked touring, recording and endorsement deals. They also paid advances to Mobb Deep ... for which Buck 50 was never reimbursed, they say.

Total cost for services rendered, according to the suit -- at least $500,000.

TMZ broke the story ... Prodigy died in June 2017, when he choked on an egg while hospitalized for sickle cell anemia.

The Weeknd Totally Single ... Despite Coachella Rumors

4/18/2018 11:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Weeknd was seen partying with a ton of hot chicks at Coachella ... but he isn't locked down by a single one.

Abel -- who headlined the festival on Friday -- was spotted with Chantel Jeffries, hanging out with Kendall Jenner and even being friendly with his ex, Bella Hadid. However, sources close to the singer tell us he's simply enjoying the single life ... and isn't serious with anyone.

Our sources say Bella was in the crowd for Friday's show and the two exchanged hellos, but any reports saying they swapped spit are totally untrue.

A post shared by Kevin Wong (@iamkevinwong) on

We're told after his performance Friday, Abel spent most of the weekend partying with his friends, family and the XO Crew.

Coachella Weekend 2 starts this Friday with another massive headlining performance from the singer, and you gotta imagine Abel will pull 'em again.

Stormy Daniels 1,500 Tips Pour in for Suspect Sketch

4/18/2018 11:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stormy Daniels' team has been flooded with tips on who her threatening mystery man might be less than 24 hours after she revealed the sketch, but she can't say she's that much closer to finding him.

Stormy's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tells TMZ her legal team has received well over 1,500 tips on potential leads for ID'ing Stormy's alleged perpetrator. However, he says they've only deemed a couple hundred or so credible enough to pursue.

Avenatti wouldn't elaborate on what differentiated credible versus non-credible tips -- but we can take a guess. TONS of people took to Twitter Tuesday after Stormy revealed the sketch on "The View" to compare it to a bunch of celebs ... most notably, Tom Brady. Some even think it looks like Stormy's husband.

As for the legit leads ... Avenatti says Stormy's team has dedicated 40-60 man hours so far running them down. He says they have people on the ground in Vegas, CA and NY.

For the record ... law enforcement sources in Vegas tell us authorities there have not received any calls about the potential identity of Stormy's mystery man, and they're not investigating the matter.

Elsa Hosk On Your Mark, Get Set ... GO LEGS!

4/18/2018 11:40 AM PDT

Swedish model Elsa Hosk gets an A+ for imagination because she just put a new spin on the classic checkered flag.

Instead of waving the ol' finish line flag, the Victoria's Secret model waved her legs while wearing a checkered two-piece during a photo shoot Wednesday in Los Angeles.

For anyone wondering ... that gorgeous red vintage Ferrari she's on top of looks like it's a 308 GTS, and it's older than she is. We know what you're thinking ... nice body, but Elsa's got the car beat in that department.  

Khloe Kardashian Extremely Conflicted On Baby's Last Name

4/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian was horribly conflicted on what last name to give her baby girl in the wake of Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal  ... before finally deciding to go with Thompson.

Our Kardashians sources tell us ... Khloe chose the name True about a month ago, and up until the cheating scandal broke -- it was a lock that True's last name would be her father's.

We're told that quickly faded after video from October surfaced -- days before Khloe went into labor -- of Tristan cheating on her ... and she was beyond conflicted on whether to go with Kardashian or Thompson when it was time to fill out True's birth certificate.

Our Kardashian sources say it took Khloe a couple days after True was born before she finally decided the right thing to do was give the baby Tristan's surname.

It's interesting ... someone close to Khloe placed an order for blankets and other baby stuff at Petit Tresor in Bev Hills. We're told the order was placed right when the scandal broke and the store was told not to embroider the initials until Khloe made her decision. The call was finally made Monday to use the initials TT.

What's better than Patriots offseason workouts?

If you're Rob Gronkowski, the answer is a pool day with your smokin' hot model girlfriend!!

FYI, things have been heating up between the Patriots star and his lady friend, Camille Kostek -- an ex-Patriots cheerleader who SLAYED the Sports Illustrated swimsuit mag earlier this year.

On Tuesday, Gronk and his GF hit up Camille's grammy's house somewhere that's not Boston ... and the Pro Bowl tight end went full Optimus Prime, transforming into her HUMAN WATER SKI!

Yeah ... Camille likey.

The hot-bod couple also got in some canoodling with a cute-as-hell puppy belonging to Gronk's little bro, Glenn -- and we're starting to get the feeling this is a lot more than a spring fling. 

Not like Bill Belichick cares.
