T.I. Not Sweating Gated Community Arrest ... It'll Work Itself Out

5/19/2018 6:10 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

T.I.'s letting things play out regarding his arrest last week after an incident with the security guard in his gated community ... but doesn't seem too concerned.

We got Tip at Reagan National Airport in D.C. Saturday and asked if he felt like the guard or cops had it out for him ... but he's not willing to say that. He tells us he hasn't received an apology from his homeowner's association ... but he's not tripping either.

The rapper does reiterate some points he made to the arresting officer while he was in jail, though ... telling us he's a taxpaying citizen and resident in the community where he got cuffed -- so the security guard wasn't doing his job.

We broke the story ... the guard called 911 and said he was threatened by T.I., who could be heard getting heated in the background. T.I. tells us the guard cursed at his wife and wouldn't let him in without justification ... and also claims he was asleep on the job.

To top it all off ... the 2 hopped in Prince Charles' silver blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero -- which also gives off some strong Bond vibes -- and Harry drove them to the party.

As we reported ... Meghan and Harry got hitched Saturday morning in a wedding that was dramatic and kind of an awesome break from Royal tradition.

Congrats again!

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle They Got Hitched and it was Awesome!!!

5/19/2018 12:30 AM PDT

The big day has finally come for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ... Meghan is now a Duchess and the wedding was a dramatic and kinda awesome break from Royal tradition.

Meghan and Harry chose the song "Stand By Me," as an anthem to their nuptials. A Black American Bishop stole the show and she walked half way down the aisle herself as a show of independence.

Meghan is now the Duchess of Sussex ... Harry is the Duke. 

Lots of celebs were on hand, including Oprah, George and Amal Clooney as well as David and Victoria Beckham.

Meghan's dad, Thomas Markle, tells TMZ, "My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy.  I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness." Thomas is in California, recovering from heart surgery. He says watching the ceremony was "emotional and joyful."

Meghan's mom was a big hit ... clearly moved by the ceremony as she sat front and center.

Meghan wore a Givenchy wedding gown, designed by Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director of the French company. 

It looks like Meghan's not going back to "Suits."

Donald Trump It's Great to Have Melanie Back Home ... I Mean Melania

Breaking News

President Trump gave the First Lady a warm welcome back to the White House ... by misspelling her name.

Trump tweeted out the good news Saturday -- Melania's back home after spending several days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center recovering from a kidney procedure -- but called her Melanie in the process.

The Prez was quick to fix the typo after several of his 52 million Twitter followers called him out for the error, but the damage was already done.

Trump's known for typos, grammatical mistakes and an occasional covfefe in his tweets ... but he always gets the names of family and friends right.

Guess there's a first time for everything.

Welcome home, Melania ... we're glad you're back home and feeling better.

Meghan's father tells us he texted her today, telling her he loves her. He says he watched the ceremony on TV from his bed, where he's recuperating from heart surgery.

And get this ... he says, "Now I pray that Harry and Meghan can go on a nice honeymoon and rest and relax, and all of my relatives will just shut up about everything."

Trippie Redd Talks Trump, Tay and Tekashi ... Before Clash with Security

5/19/2018 3:44 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rapper Trippie Redd makes it clear who he f***s with and who he doesn't, but one thing we don't know yet ... why a bouncer was so pissed at his crew.

We got the 18-year-old rapper leaving Delilah in Weho Friday with his entourage, and he's got takes on meeting with President Trump, foul-mouthed 9-year-old rapper Lil Tay, and Tekashi69 ... and that last take's sure to heat up their beef.

But the real fireworks came as Trippie's ride was trying to drive away, but a bouncer from Delilah got in the street and blocked them from leaving. The rapper got around him pretty quick ... but things got heated with the car the rest of his crew was in.

We're told the bouncer was trying to stop them because there was a fight in the restaurant earlier ... and Trippie's guys were allegedly connected.

Clearly, they didn't want to stick around and talk about it.

Meghan and Harry's Wedding American Bishop Steals Show

5/19/2018 4:58 AM PDT

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle were front and center -- obviously -- at their wedding, but the surprise star turned out to be an American Bishop who gave a stirring sermon about love.

The Bishop's presence is significant for a bunch of reasons ... notably, an American took to the pulpit at a Royal Wedding. Bishop Curry is the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the U.S. and 16 other countries. Also, not lost is the fact he's African American, as is Meghan. It's especially poignant given what happened several months ago, when Princess Michael of Kent wore a racist Blackamoor brooch when she met Meghan.

Bishop Curry gave a rousing speech about love ... which had Meghan and Harry smiling.

It's interesting ... Ellie Goulding performed the same song at William and Kate's wedding.

The reception is a luncheon at Windsor Castle, hosted by the Queen. We're told all 600 guests are in attendance.

There will be a second reception hosted by Harry's dad Prince Charles at Frogmore House where the guest list will be whittled down to 200. That bash starts at 7 PM London time and could go into the wee hours of Sunday morning.
