Kris Jenner Alleged Stalker Ordered to Stay Away for 3 Years

5/24/2017 9:48 AM PDT
Breaking News

Kris Jenner won't have to worry about an obsessed ex-security guard for a while ... he's been ordered to keep his distance for 3 years.

The judge signed off Wednesday morning on a permanent restraining order against Joshua Jacobs ... who was arrested for felony stalking at Kris' house earlier this month. As we reported, it was the third time he'd been busted trying to get to the house.

Kris immediately got a temporary restraining order, but today's ruling extends that protection for herself and her family. Jacobs remains in custody.

Jenner was not in court, but her attorney, Shawn Holley, tells us, "The Jenner and Kardashian families take safety very seriously, and will vigorously pursue all remedies available to them, both in criminal and civil court, to ensure they are protected."

Justin Bieber No Hablo Español During 'Despacito' Live

5/24/2017 8:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber's seemingly masterful Spanish singing on the #1 hit "Despacito" did not translate in a live performance ... unless we missed the "blah blah blah" lesson in Español class. 

The Biebs got on the mic Tuesday night at 1 OAK in NYC, where he tried singing along to Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's hot record -- which features Justin singing the hook in Spanish.

It appears Justin forgot the more intricate elements of the chorus, and by intricate we mean everything but "despacito."

The takeaway here -- Spanish is hard when it's not written down for you in a studio. 

Chris Cornell 'High, F***ed Up' During Last Performance

5/24/2017 8:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Cornell was messed up during his Detroit concert ... hours before he committed suicide -- this according to a longtime confidant who was present and working the event.

Ted Keedick, who worked with Chris for the last decade as his house engineer and tour manager, tells TMZ, "Chris was out of character from note 1 of the show. I've never heard or seen him that way before, at least if we did not cancel a show."

Keedick says Chris seemed "high" and "f***ed up," but not depressed. In fact, Keedick says during sound check Chris was in good spirits. It's consistent with what Chris' widow says of her phone conversations with Chris before and after the show.

Vicky Cornell says Chris told her he had taken "an extra Ativan or two" and she was so alarmed she called hotel security to check on him. Chris' own security guy discovered the singer had hanged himself in his bathroom.

Keedick says Chris was off during the entire show, saying, "I'd never heard his voice that way before. He was having serious control problems."

Keedick was positioned in the middle of the audience with his mixing board, and at one point during the concert he was so concerned he phoned someone backstage and asked what was wrong with Chris.

As we reported, Chris had struggled with drug abuse for years, but his wife says he was clean when he died. Based on Keedick's account, it appears he fell off the wagon before his last concert.

Donald Trump was all grins Wednesday when he met Pope Francis at the Vatican, but the Pope seemed ... well, pensive.

Pope Francis encouraged the Prez to be a peacemaker and Trump promised to heed the message.

The meeting lasted 30 minutes and each had a translator.

The Pope gave Trump a sculptured olive tree, telling him it symbolized peace. The Pope followed up with this ... "It is my desire that you become an olive tree to construct peace."

For his part Trump gave Pope Francis a set of 5 first-edition books by Martin Luther King, Jr.

Barack Obama and Justin Bieber have something in common ... they can't walk down a street in Italy without getting mobbed.

Seems even in the land of pasta and wine they've heard of Barack's baby whispering skills and it appears he hasn't lost his magic touch.

It's not just an issue of fitness ... lots of celebs on the show are in super good shape, but athletes still seem to hold the edge.

What we don't know ... is it more mental than physical?

Elsa Hosk Blending In

5/24/2017 7:14 AM PDT

If Elsa Hosk thought she could blend in with her surroundings by matching the colors of a fancy French pool deck ... well, she was sadly mistaken.

The Victoria's Secret Angel was seen taking in the sights -- and providing some, too -- at the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc Hotel in Antibes, France Wednesday ... where her bikini and the deck she was on were almost one and the same.

Keyword ... almost.

Fortunately, she's way too hot to camouflage in the background here, especially when she steps away. Cool off with Elsa on the rocks.

Katy Perry, Lorde, Chainsmokers Show Will Go On After Manchester Bombing

5/24/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Katy Perry, Lorde, Lana Del Rey, Imagine Dragons, Shawn Mendes and The Chainsmokers are not bowing to the terrorists, because they're fully committed to performing in England this weekend ... with an asterisk.  

They're all performing at the BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend Saturday and Sunday, and all have pledged to take the stage as planned.

Here's the rub. 50,000 people are expected to attend, and the fan base is young ... similar to the crowd at Ariana Grande's ill-fated concert. Our sources say the various teams representing the artists are working with the venue to ramp up security in a huge way. We're told security was already at red alert level, but it pales by comparison to the new plan keeping the venue and the crowd safe.

The change is worldwide. Our sources say AEG and Live Nation have lunged into action after the Manchester bombing, and are in the process of creating a security plan the likes of which have never been implemented at concert venues.

Some artists have canceled over the next few days out of respect, but we've found no one who's backing out of future concert dates out of security concerns -- other than Ariana, who understandably has put her shows on hold because she's reeling from the attack.
