Jackie Kennedy Death Suit All the Rage with Fashion Models

2/22/2018 7:37 AM PST

Jackie Kennedy was a fashion icon for the 3 years she reigned as First Lady, but Jackie imitators in the fashion world have chosen one specific outfit that has JFK's blood all over it.

Check out these models at the Moschino Women's Fall/Winter 2018/2019 Collection Fashion Show in Milan, Italy.   

They're wearing knockoffs of the Chanel dress and pillbox hat Jackie wore in Dallas on November 22, 1963 -- the day her husband had his head blown off by an assassin.

The models may not even have had a clue as they walked the runway ... and, speaking of runways, Jackie wore the blood-stained dress as she accompanied her husband's body to a mortuary after Air Force One landed that night in Washington D.C.  

Jackie later said she wore the dress to show people the horror of the assassination.

Tekashi69 Airport Brawl Triggered by Rapper Disrespecting Women

2/22/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 would have avoided a violent beatdown Wednesday at LAX if his crew hadn't mouthed off to some female friends of two other rappers.  

TMZ broke the story, Tekashi -- also known as 6ix9ine -- and his posse literally stopped traffic as the fight spilled out into the street at the busy airport.

One of the guys who attacked 6ix9ine -- Acie High (in the red jersey) -- tells us 6ix9ine has a long history of verbal abuse toward women and Acie is very clear ... he hated the guy for it.

Acie -- who's in a rap group out of Texas called Aqualeo -- says he and his partner, Priceless, were dropping some girls off at LAX when Tekashi's crew started hitting on the chicks. Acie says he and Priceless told the guys to stop, they wouldn't, so things exploded.

Acie says he always thought there would be a time when he would do a little street justice, and seems more than happy 6ix9ine and his crew pushed his buttons at the airport.

Ed Sheeran & Fiancee You Likin' The Shape of Our Engagement Rings?

2/22/2018 7:28 AM PST

Ed Sheeran is bucking tradition when it comes to who wears an engagement ring -- but it's clear who's got on the nicer bling between him and his fiancee. 

Ed and his bride-to-be, Cherry Seaborn, were spotted leaving a restaurant Wednesday night in London with both of 'em rocking hardware on their ring fingers. Ed got folks all freaked out by making everyone think he'd already gotten hitched ... but he hasn't.

He addressed his silver wedding band at the 2018 BRIT Awards this week, saying his gal had made it for him and thought men should wear engagement rings, too ... adding "It's the same commitment either way."

It might be the same commitment, but it definitely ain't the same price. Ed's ring is homemade -- meanwhile, Cherry's giant diamond ring definitely looks top-shelf commercial.

Some things will probably never change ... eh, Ed. 

Chris Rock Won't Engage His Haters ... On White Kids Getting Shot Joke

2/22/2018 6:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Rock offered our camera guy a peace sign, but made it pretty clear -- and fast -- he was in no mood to laugh or talk.

We got the comedian at LAX Wednesday and first asked him about picking up the tab at Mastro's Steakhouse after dining with comedy legends Eddie MurphyDave ChappelleKevin Hart and Chris Tucker.

Rock wasn't having it ... just like he wasn't having it when our guy wanted to know if one of his jokes in his new Netflix special was untimely and insensitive. If you haven't heard ... Rock had joked, "I want to live in a world with real equality. I want to live in a world where an equal amount of white kids are shot every month. I want to see white mothers on TV crying."

Trump, Putin, Kim Jong-un Human Rights Ads Banned from D.C.

2/22/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Three super provocative ads featuring President Trump, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un won't see the light of day -- at least not in our nation's capital ... TMZ has learned.

Amnesty International USA wanted to place the ads in metro stations in the D.C. area. The org tried making the deal on February 12, but it got nixed 4 days later. 

The point of the ad campaign ... "a message of protecting human rights around the world" that coincided with its annual conference in nearby Bethesda, MD.

We had heard the objection to the ads was the unflattering pic of Trump, but upon further digging we were told the ads violate a D.C. ordinance prohibiting political ads on public transit, which is interpreted to include metro stations. 

The law specifically prohibits advertisements intended to influence public policy.

Margaret Huang, the Exec Director of Amnesty International USA, is fiercely opposed to banning the ads, telling us the ads are all about upholding human rights, which is neither a partisan nor political. 

She says the law is all the more misguided because it makes advocacy ads difficult to post in the most important place ... where policies are made.

Under the category, 'If At First You Don't Succeed' ... the org plans to run ads in other major cities ...

T.I. Yes, We Need Real Gun Control ... But, At What Cost?

2/22/2018 6:38 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

T.I. says it's time for the U.S.A. to reexamine its gun laws in the wake of the Florida shooting ... but he doesn't wanna lose his right to bear arms.

We got Tip Wednesday leaving The Palm in Bev Hills, where he weighed in on the gun control debate raging in the country right now. Somewhat surprisingly, he says he's for reform.

The rapper tells us it absolutely should be more difficult for unstable people to get their hands on a firearm, and that "not being a felon isn't enough" anymore. At the same time ... he fears messing with the 2nd Amendment could lead to "enslavement" by Uncle Sam.

You gotta hear his take here, which is interesting considering T.I. himself did prison time on federal gun charges. Also, check out how he feels about banning automatics.

Director Alejandro Inarritu Allow Passage for the 'Aleppo' Crew ... It's the Oscars, Man!

2/22/2018 7:08 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Alejandro Inarritu is going to bat for the creative team behind the Oscar nominated documentary about Syria ... posing one simple question for the feds.

We got the Academy Award-winning director Wednesday at LAX and asked if he'd heard about a hiccup the filmmakers of "Last Men in Aleppo" are having under Trump's travel ban.

We broke the story ... the directors and cinematographers of the film are trying to attend the Oscars after being nominated this year, but can't come because their country is on Trump's banned list. They're currently attempting to use party invites to gain passage.

Alejandro thinks it's absurd they're not being allowed in the country, especially since their reasons are more than legit. His point ... a ban is only warranted for criminals. 

Chevy Chase I Got Swift Kick to the Shoulder In Road Rage Incident!!!

2/22/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chevy Chase tracked down a truck he says cut him off, but when he tried to confront the driver he ended up getting booted to the ground ... according to a police report.

Chevy claims he was traveling over NY's Tappan Zee Bridge on February 9 when a black pickup cut him off. He told cops he thought the truck hit his car, so he flashed his high beams and followed it until the driver pulled over.

According to police docs ... Chevy realized there was no damage to either vehicle, but approached the driver to "speak to him about his reckless driving." He claims there were 3 other people in the truck, and one of 'em flipped him off. Apparently not "Fletch" or "Caddyshack" fans.

Chevy says he fired back, "If I were a lot younger I'd bust your nose" ... then one of 'em got out and kicked him in the shoulder so hard he went to the ground.

According to docs, the pickup driver claims Chevy tried to throw a punch first, and the alleged kicker was just blocking Chevy's fist ... with his foot.

Cops cited ol' quick foot for 2nd degree harassment with physical contact.

There was a 3rd party witness who, according to cops, pulled over because he didn't want to see an old man "get his ass stomped."

Prince's Heirs Worried They'll Get Zilch Estate's Burning Cash Like Crazy!!!

2/22/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Prince's estate is spending a ton of cash -- at times more than $600k PER MONTH -- and dropping that kinda loot has the singer's heirs worried they'll be left with nothing when it's their turn to collect.

Sources close to Prince's heirs tell TMZ ... they're dumbfounded at how much money it costs to manage the late singer's estate. We're told at the current burn rate, heirs feel there's gonna be close to nothing when it's time to distribute the inheritance.

According to docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Comerica's monthly fee to manage the estate is $125k per month. Comerica also hired the law firm Fredrikson & Byron P.A. to rep the estate in court (i.e. Prince's label suing Roc Nation), supervise and coordinate with accountants and advise on tax-related issues. Last November alone, the law firm billed more than $440k in fees and expenses.

The spending keeps going ... F&B then hired other attorneys to deal with trademarks, oversea litigation and services on deal proposals, among other things.

Comerica, for its part, has painstakingly broken down in more than 600 pages of invoices exactly where the money's going and why it costs so much to manage the estate, which is reportedly worth around $250 mil.

Steve Wilkos Charged with DUI in Car Crash ... Admits He lied to TMZ

2/21/2018 4:48 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

6:15 PM PT -- Cops say as part of the investigation into Wilkos' accident, a search warrant for his medical records was secured and it discovered his BAC was .29% and way over the legal limit the afternoon he crashed his car.

A warrant was issued for Steve's arrest, but he turned himself in Wednesday evening in Connecticut. He's been charged with operating under the influence and failure to drive right. He was released after posting $1,500 bond.

Steve Wilkos just confessed to TMZ, he lied when he told us the horrific car crash in which he was involved last month was the result of him being distracted as he reached for his glasses ... he was actually under the influence of alcohol.

We've learned the talk show host was charged Wednesday with DUI in the single-car crash in Darien, Conn.  

We broke the story, Wilkos struck several poles and a tree before the vehicle rolled over. He went to a hospital for minor injuries and his show was put on ice for a few days while he recovered.

Wilkos tells TMZ, "Over the course of my life, I have been struggling with bouts of depression and on the day of my accident, I had a complete lapse in judgment which resulted in me drinking and getting behind the wheel of my car."

He went on ... "This experience reinforces my commitment to get the professional help that I need and I have recently completed an intensive medically supervised program" ... translation, rehab.

Dana White Yes, I'm Stripping Conor's Belt ... No Deal with Floyd Yet

2/22/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

It's official ... Dana White tells TMZ Sports he's definitely stripping Conor McGregor's lightweight title, so Khabib and Tony Ferguson can fight for the "real" belt.

So, what does that mean for a possible Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor rematch? 

Don't worry ... we talked about that, too. 

"The only way a rematch makes sense in that fight is in the UFC," White says. He also confirms the two sides are talking. 

White says he doesn't think Floyd needs the money -- but if he's serious about an MMA fight against one of the baddest combat sports athletes on the planet ... "he absolutely should be worried about his skills."

White insists there is NO deal done right now -- but says, "Anything is possible."

As for Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson ... Dana says Conor understands that he must strip the belt so the two guys can fight for the title. 

He hopes Conor returns to the octagon in August or Sept. to fight the winner of that match. 

Then again, with the kind of money Conor made in his last fight ... Dana says, "Conor might never come back."
