Tupac & Biggie OG Outfits Resurrected For 'All Eyez on Me'

5/22/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The actors playing Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. in "All Eyez on Me" should look pretty damn authentic 'cause they're wearing actual outfits the legendary rappers wore in real life.  

Sources close to production tell us ... April Walker -- who designed for Pac and Biggie in the '90s -- brought back some of her original wardrobe designs for filming the biopic.

We're told April had to remake 2 costumes for the biopic using patterns she saved from back in the day. One of them is the yellow Walker Wear vest Tupac rocked in "Above the Rim" -- and the other is a tracksuit she custom made for Big.

Besides coming in handy for the movie ... we're told April also wants to use her old designs for a museum exhibit featuring the resurrected hip-hop wear.

Cher Lets Trump Off The Hook At Billboard Awards

5/21/2017 8:15 PM PDT

Cher took home the "Icon" award at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards -- and to the surprise of viewers and show execs -- she didn't mention President Trump.

TMZ broke the story, award show producers went into Sunday holding their breath for what the singer -- who's been extremely critical of Trump -- may say during her acceptance speech. Lucky for ABC ... Cher held back on any vulgarity or any Trump remarks at all. 

The 71-year-old took the stage to perform "Believe" and "If I Could Turn Back Time" before  accepting the award from Gwen Stefani. Her speech was short and simple ... thanking friends, family and those who helped her in the industry.

Chaz Bono was also there to see mom accept the award.

  

Shaq Shoots His Shot With Ellen Barkin ... I Love You, Marry Me!

5/22/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Shaq shot over 19,000 shots during his NBA career, but none so smooth as this ... 'cause the big fella just totally got his Steph Curry on with "Animal Kingdom" star Ellen Barkin, and it's pretty awesome.

O'Neal was out in NYC when he began to gush and swoon over Barkin to our camera guy -- completely unprompted we might add -- while talking about how much he loves her show, "Animal Kingdom."

We actually tried to get Shaq back on track and ask him TV questions, but the dude was too lovestruck to talk about anything but the 63-year-old Barkin.

Here's the thing ... Shaq seems serious, and actually said he's ready to marry Ellen (okay, so that's a joke) and has loved her since he first saw her in "Ocean's Eleven."

Bad form, Shaq ... she was actually in "Ocean's Thirteen" (not even married yet and you're already forgetting your anniversary). 

James Cameron Sued 'Titanic' is a Rip-off ... I'm the Real Jack Dawson!!

5/22/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

James Cameron stole the life story of a Florida man who worked in the yacht industry and used it for the lead character of "Titanic" ... according to his lawsuit.

Stephen Cummings claims he's the inspiration for Jack Dawson -- played by Leo DiCaprio. According to the docs, Cameron learned about Cummings through word of mouth about events that took place in Brevard County in 1988 and '89.

If this seems unlikely ... wait. The ex-"yacht master" also says the depiction of the Titanic sinking was NOT based on history, but instead on stories he told friends about 2 of his relatives who were aboard the real doomed ship. You probably guessed -- the wife survived, the husband did not.

Of course, 1,517 souls were lost that fateful 1912 night ... so we'd imagine there are more than a few such stories.

In any event, Cummings wants $300 million ... plus 1 percent of royalties.

Janet Jackson's Ex-Husband Crashes Head-On, Leaves the Scene

5/22/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Janet Jackson's ex-husband #1 slammed his car into an oncoming vehicle and managed to make matters worse when he bolted from the scene ... and TMZ has the footage.

The incident went down April 24 on an L.A. street and the victim's dash cam was rolling -- capturing James DeBarge driving a Mercedes station wagon, trying to cut across traffic when he collided with her Chevy Volt.

The woman hired attorney Michael Parker, who says she's hit a dead end trying to get James to pay for the $6k in damages. No one's been able to locate him.

Mike says they did a little digging and it appeared James had no insurance ... so she'll probably have to tap into her uninsured motorist.

We tried reaching out to James, but we had no luck either.

Drake Crazy Billboard Performance In Middle of Bellagio Fountain

5/21/2017 7:45 PM PDT

Drake just brought his award show performance game to a new level ... taking the stage in the middle of Bellagio's famous fountains in a flurry of fire, fireworks and water cannons at The Billboard Music Awards.

Drizzy -- who is nominated for 22 awards at this year's show -- performed "Gyalchester" during Sunday's show. 

The rapper isn't the first to hit the fountain during the BBMAs ... back in 2001 Britney Spears performed "I'm A Slave 4 U" from the famous landmark.

By the way ... Drake's already taken home 10 awards with plenty of show left.

Scott Disick Home Burglarized

5/21/2017 2:49 PM PDT
Breaking News

5:00 PM PT -- Law enforcement tells TMZ it's apparent items were taken from Disick's home, but they're not sure what was stolen because they have not yet spoken with Disick. Our sources say it appears the house was at least partially ransacked. And now we know why cops raced to the scene ... there was a silent burglar alarm that was activated. As of now there are no leads.  

3:08 PM PT -- Neighbors around Scott's home tell TMZ they did not hear an alarm go off during the burglary. We're told there was police activity there up until at least 3 AM. One neighbor tells us there was more car activity than usual at the house Saturday morning, but it was quiet from at least 11 PM until cops showed up. 

Scott Disick is the latest celeb to get hit by burglars ... this time someone broke into his home in the wee hours of Sunday morning. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ burglars broke through a rear door of Scott's Hidden Hills home, and deputies responded around 1 AM.

Nobody was home at the time of the burglary. As we reported ... Scott was celebrating his 34th birthday in Vegas.

It doesn't seem coincidental that Scott was at a well-publicized gig in Vegas, hundreds of miles from his Hidden Hills home. Various people were posting pics and videos of Scott inside 1 Oak where he was celebrating his birthday. An hour later, his house was hit.

You'll recall, Scott's house was broken into last year - almost to the day - while he was in Cannes. 

It's unclear what was taken this time, or whether his burglar alarm was on. 

This is the latest in a string of celebrity burglaries. Among the victims -- A$AP Rocky, Emmy RossumKendall Jenner, Jaime PresslyTrevor Ariza and many, many more.

5/21/2017 7:21 PM PDT

Celine Dion just brought the house down at The Billboard Music Awards -- singing "My Heart Will Go On" -- a performance that ended with a standing O and host Vanessa Hudgens in tears.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the release of Titanic, Dion took center stage at T-Mobile Arena in Vegas to belt out the classic ... and of course, it was perfect.

The performance marked one of Dion's first at an award show since the death of husband Rene Angelil last year.

Celine was emotional when the song wrapped ... but it was Hudgens who was left in tears to open the next segment.

Exclusive Details

Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian are worlds apart both in proximity and relationship status ... he's slapping ass in Vegas, and she's cuddling her boo at Cannes.

Scott hit up a party bus Saturday night after celebrating his 34th birthday at 1 Oak earlier, and believe it or not ... there was a stripper aboard -- or at least someone acting like one. 

The Lord gets in a few good smacks on the chick's ass -- and, boy, are they loud. The music can't even drown 'em out. 

All the while about 6,000 miles away ... Kourtney was cozying up to her new man, Younes Bendjima, at the Cannes Film Festival in France. She flew out there a few days ago and joined him since he's from the area. As we reported ... she's officially done with Scott, and wants him to man up and move on.

Looks like he's moving all right. 

Justin Trudeau Prom PM ... Photobomb Master

5/21/2017 1:18 PM PDT

Canada's Prime Minister does 2 things exceptionally well that sometimes coincide ... jogging and photobombing.

Justin Trudeau went on a run Saturday along Stanley Park Seawall in Vancouver, where he zipped by a group of kids taking pics for their prom. Naturally, it made for an epic photobomb ... him in full stride and smiling. 

The high schoolers quickly noticed their leader, and since he's a nice guy ... he took an official shot with the youngsters.

Oh, Trudeau. 

Mike Pence Notre Dame Grads Storm Out in Protest

5/21/2017 11:26 AM PDT
Breaking News

11:35 AM PT -- A Notre Dame school official tells TMZ the university was aware of the walk-out, and even helped them out a bit for minimal distractions. Students asked ND heads a few days before graduation which exit they should take to cause the least amount of attention. ND didn't fight the protest. We're also told about 99% of the class stayed and received Pence warmly, which they consider a success.Mike Pence learned the true meaning of the phrase "Fighting Irish" when a couple dozen grads removed themselves from the ceremony during the Veep's commencement speech.

Pence was asked by Notre Dame to deliver the speech Sunday at its graduation, but the moment he stepped up to the lectern ... at least 20 students got up headed toward the back.

It was a planned protest against the Trump administration ... point made.

It's kind of a big deal. ND is a Catholic school ... and Pence is famously Christian. Also, the university is in Indiana ... where he served as governor before being tapped as Trump's VP.

Pence carried on like nothing happened. He fired up the audience and even got some cheers.

'Bachelor' Ben Higgins Concert-Going with Ashley Iaconetti ... After Split from Lauren

5/21/2017 9:17 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ben Higgins is back on the market, and he's already going out with another "Bachelor" hottie ... but it's not what you think.

Ben went to a Bryan Adams concert Saturday night at the Greek Theater in L.A. with none other than "Bachelor" alum Ashley Iaconetti. She was on Chris Soules' season right before Ben's ... famous for her celibacy. 

Eyewitnesses tell us Ben and Ashley were definitely there together, and seemed pretty friendly ... sans PDA, though. We're told they were chatting it up, just not exclusively.

Sources close to Ben cleared up the confusion easily ... they're just friends. The 2 "Bachelor" stars are launching a radio podcast together this week, "Almost Famous," and went to the concert with other folks from iHeart Radio. They've also been promoting their new gig ... so it makes sense they'd be hanging out.

As we reported ... Ben and his ex-fiance, Lauren Bushnell, officially called it quits last week. 

As for Ben and Ashley ... it's strictly business.

Michelle Obama Belleza Rosa

5/21/2017 8:32 AM PDT

While Barack was hitting the links in Tuscany, Michelle Obama was hitting the sights about 67 miles away ... and looking good in pink doing it.

The former First Lady was strolling around in Montalcino, Italy this weekend -- and she appeared to be the talk of the small town. You can't blame the locals ... she kinda stood out with the pink and white. Plus ... it's Michelle Freakin' Obama. She'll always turn heads.

Michelle snagged a second for herself during a food break, but then it was right back into the international spotlight. Togliti di mezzo!
