Hillary Clinton jumped off the political sidelines and fired a shot at Republicans over the new healthcare bill ... saying, in not so many words, it's gonna kill Americans.

The former candidate said the GOP will be "the death party" if they pass the proposed healthcare measure. In her tweet, she referenced an article citing Harvard researchers. Their study says the Senate bill could result in "18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026."

EXCLUSIVE

He's worn dresses ... maybe that's why Dennis Rodman felt so comfortable using the women's restroom at Long Beach airport Wednesday night.

A female witness tells us she noticed Dennis in the airport around 9 PM -- but couldn't believe it when she saw The Worm walk straight into the women's restroom while blasting Staind's "It's Been Awhile" on his mini-speaker.

We're told he was inside for about a minute -- and acted normal while a bunch of confused women looked on ... some doing double takes.

Ultimately, he left without issue and went on his merry way ... continuing to play that Staind song.

Dr. Luke Settles With Kesha's Mom Drops Defamation Suit

6/23/2017 1:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

Dr. Luke's nearly 3 year saga in a defamation lawsuit against Kesha's mom is finally over -- the suit's been dropped and they've reached a settlement.

TMZ broke the story ... the music producer claimed in a 2014 lawsuit that Pebe Sebert orchestrated a smear campaign of sexual lies against him. He also claimed Pebe wanted Kesha to break her contract with him, and when she couldn't, Pebe got Kesha to spread lies that he raped her.

But the parties have now agreed to dismiss the case with prejudice -- meaning it can't be refiled. Translation: They settled it, and one thing Luke got was a statement from Pebe regarding his sexual assault case with Kesha.

According to the statement ... "Pebe admits she has no firsthand knowledge of the events occurring on the night of the alleged rape. Pebe was not present that night. At that time, Pebe was in Nashville, and Kesha was in Los Angeles. The dispute between Kesha and Dr. Luke about the events of that night is the subject of the New York case, and will be decided in that case."

As we reported ... Pebe countersued Dr. Luke claiming he tormented and abused her by allegedly date raping her daughter. That case was dropped in April 2016.

Johnny Depp I'm Sorry, Mr. President ... I Made A Bad Joke

6/23/2017 11:43 AM PDT
Breaking News

Johnny Depp is apologizing for his joke about assassinating President Trump, saying he didn't mean any harm by it.

Johnny released a statement admitting the "bad joke" he told Thursday to the Glastonbury Festival crowd was in poor taste.

“It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice," his apology read. "I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.”

Depp had joked, "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?"

The White House condemned Depp for the joke and called on Hollywood to speak out against this type of violent rhetoric.

Johnny Depp Once Booted from White House Reception For Showing 'Disrespect'

6/23/2017 11:17 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Johnny Depp's disdain for the White House runs deep ... so deep he was once corralled by Secret Service agents who refused to let him shake the President's hand.

Depp, who's taking heat for his Trump assassination crack, was at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. back in January 1988 -- yeah, we know it's the '80s -- where President and Nancy Reagan held a ceremony for the fight against AIDS.

Johnny -- who was the star of "21 Jump Street," started clowning almost from the get-go. During a private tour, he picked his nose at the podium in the Press Room and flipped off the camera outside the gate.

We're told he was in the Rose Garden when he lit up a cigarette, much to the dismay of the Secret Service.

Later, during the event, Johnny was in the Blue Room when he once again lit a ciggy ... enraging the agent.

When it came time for the receiving line to meet the Prez and First Lady, the agents told Johnny he could not participate because he had shown disrespect.

Check out the PSA.

Brandy Serenaded by Common ... After Health Scare

6/23/2017 10:10 AM PDT

Brandy Norwood is doing just fine after her airplane medical emergency ... but Common treated her extra special at his concert Thursday night anyway.

The rapper brought Brandy onstage at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento and put her front and center. As he performed his 2002 track, "Come Close," she smiled and waved her arms ... then got serenaded with the final verse.

We broke the story ... Brandy fell into unconsciousness earlier this month on a Delta flight at LAX just before takeoff, and was rushed to the hospital. She said the collapse was the result of exhaustion, although at least one witness on the plane says she had taken a pill just before the medical emergency.

'All Eyez On Me' Sued by Kevin Powell ... That Script Stole My Interviews!

6/23/2017 9:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The filmmakers behind "All Eyez On Me" kept too close an eye on interviews Tupac did with a famous journalist, and then used his work -- without permission -- to write their script ... according to a lawsuit.

Kevin Powell wrote a series of articles for Vibe in the mid '90s focusing on Tupac's 2 major influences -- the civil rights movement (his mother, Afeni Shakur, was a Black Panther) ... and the gangsta rap movement.

According to the suit, 'Eyez' executive producer L.T. Hutton did an interview just this month, saying he looked at "all of the interviews" of Tupac to make the movie.

Powell -- who you'd also recognize from season 1 of "Real World" -- says after seeing the movie he saw many similarities to his articles. For instance, the movie has a character named Nigel ... as does Powell's article. But he says his Nigel was fictional, based on a real guy named "Haitian Jack." The fact Nigel appears in the movie, proves filmmakers lifted Powell's work ... according to the suit.

He says the movie also features a journalist, played by Hill Harper, talking to Pac in prison ... just as he did.

Sources connected to Powell tell us the parallel isn't lost on the public, because he's been asked multiple times if Hill's character is based on him.

We're told Powell's currently working on a Tupac biography, but before that comes out he's shooting for the moon with this lawsuit. He's asking a judge to immediately block the film from playing in theaters ... and award him a slice of the profits it's already earned.

Bill Cosby Andrea Constand Dressed Like She Was Asking for It

6/23/2017 6:43 AM PDT

A juror in the Bill Cosby trial says Andrea Constand's choice of clothes was highly relevant in deciding whether she was the victim of sexual assault.

The male juror -- who spoke with Philadelphia Inquirer -- said Constand should have been "dressed properly" when she went to Cosby's home. Constand apparently was wearing a top with the midriff exposed.

The juror felt Constand was interested in a romantic relationship, in part because she brought a gift -- incense. The juror felt she should have "left the incense in the store" if this was just a friendship.

The juror went on to say the votes in jury deliberation were evenly split and there was no skew based on sex, age or color.

He felt Constand seemed rehearsed -- pushed by her mom -- whereas Cosby seemed honest in his deposition by admitting things that were unflattering.

The juror -- who wouldn't say how he voted -- feels a retrial is a waste of time.

It's just a matter of time ... but y'know the Prez is loading up some "Pirates of the Caribbean" cracks.

Donald Trump Says Obama May Have Planted Secret Recorders In Oval Office

6/23/2017 6:46 AM PDT

Donald Trump has created an outlandish justification for suggesting 42 days ago that his conversation with then FBI Director James Comey may have been recorded ... and he's pointing the finger at Obama.

Trump said on "Fox & Friends" Friday the reason he made his now-famous oblique reference to recording Comey was that the Obama administration was so deep into surveillance it was possible his predecessor wired the Oval Office.

The suggestion ... the wiring was so surreptitious, no one noticed it when Trump moved in.

Melania was by her husband's side and made it clear ... she's all in now and doesn't miss The Big Apple.
