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.

4/18/2018 11:31 AM PDT
Breaking News

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. 

Ray J And Princess Love Score VH1 Baby Special ... With a Speidi Assist!

4/18/2018 9:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ray J doesn't have a clue about how to change diapers, but the father-to-be is about to learn from two people who have firsthand experience ... Heidi and Spencer Pratt.

Sources tell us Ray J and Princess Love will be producing and starring in their own 2-hour VH1 special that leads up to their daughter's birth. Ray's manager, David Weintraub -- who's also a daddy -- will produce and appear in the special as well. 

As for Heidi and Spencer ... they seemed like a perfect fit since they have infant experience with their 6-month-old son, Gunner. Even Ray's pal, Too Short, will pitch in with parenting pointers.

They've already started shooting, and based on this clip -- about what kinda booze dads should drink -- it's gonna be interesting.

PL's not due until this summer, which is about when the special will air. The clock's officially ticking on Ray J to brush up on his diaper changing skills.

Legendary Wrestler Bruno Sammartino Dead At 82

4/18/2018 7:45 AM PDT
Breaking News

Hall of Fame wrestler Bruno Sammartino is dead.

Sammartino -- who was the longest reigning champion in WWE history (4,040 days) -- passed away at his home in Pittsburgh.

Bruno got his start with the WWWF ... the promotion started by Vince McMahon Sr. -- which eventually led to the WWF and WWE.

He was also a color commentator for WWF Superstars of wrestling and WWF All-Star wrestling, during the WWE's explosion of popularity in the 1980's.

Bruno wrestled as far back as the 50's and went head-to-head with the likes of Freddie Blassie, Buddy Rogers and George "The Animal" Steele. His matches were called by the legendary announcer Dick Lane ... who made "Whoa Nelly" a household phrase.

Later Sammartino served as a corner man for his son, David, during the first WrestleMania in Madison Square Garden in 1985.

The cause of death is unknown but Bruno struggled with health issues for a long time before he passed.

Bruno leaves behind his wife Carol, who he's been married to for nearly 60 years, and 3 kids.

Bruno was 82.

RIP.

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?
