Joey Lawrence Bankruptcy Ain't Crampin' My Style

4/24/2018 7:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joey Lawrence officially settled his bankruptcy case, but it's not hurting his game in Hollywood ... at all.

Joey, who got the bankruptcy judge's sign off 2 weeks ago, hit up Craig's restaurant in WeHo Monday night ... an expensive proposition for sure. He left in a brand new Dodge Challenger Hellcat, which retails for around $60k minimum.

It's interesting, considering Joey had a 2014 Bentley, a 2016 BMW i8 and a 2015 Ford Flex repoed.

According to the bankruptcy docs, Joey claimed he had $8k to his name in the bank and $60 in cash.

Impressive Hollywood rebound.

Rick Ross to TMZ Photog I'm Gonna Clean You Up 'Hervis' Levin, Too, Actually!

4/24/2018 7:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rick Ross does not want to be approached by scrubs in the streets, which is a lesson our camera guy -- and Harvey Levin -- might need to learn the hard way.

We got Rozay Monday leaving The London hotel in NYC, where our photog asked about how he felt about Meek Mill still being locked up despite a rallying cry from the public. Ross tells us it's BS, and that his label mate still has his support ... but then changed the subject.

The Boss calls out our guy for not having a clean shave -- but the good news is that he generously offers to hook him up with his own line of 'RICH' hair care products.

Even better news ... Rick extends his offer to our boss, 'Hervis,' whom the rap mogul says has been looking stressed as of late. You don't gotta tell us, Renzel. Also ... do it!!!!

Tracy Morgan Gets His 'Headsprung' As 'Last O.G.' is Renewed

4/24/2018 7:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tracy Morgan sticks to his O.G. status on and off camera, especially when he hears his hit new show just got picked up for a new season ... queue LL Cool J slaps.

We got Tracy Monday arriving to the 'Daily Show' set in NYC, where he was scheduled to appear as one of Trevor Noah's guests. He also happened to show up hours after the news broke that his TBS comedy, "The Last O.G.," had gotten picked up for a second season. 

Call us crazy, but it sounds like Tracy knew his character, Tray, was coming back -- 'cause he was blasting LL's 2004 single, "Headsprung," out of his Rolls-Royce, which is nothing short of a party anthem. He also had on the biggest damn chain in the world.

Granted ... 2004 ain't all that old when you're talking 'O.G.' -- especially for an LL track -- but we'll cut the dude a break. Good news is good news, right?

Breaking News

Mitt Romney ... talking crap?!

Yep -- it all went down at the Jazz game Monday night where a man running for senator in Utah sat on the court to watch his team take on the OKC Thunder in Game 4 of their playoff series. 

When Russell Westbrook racked up his 4th foul in the first half ... Romney (wearing his own customized Jazz jersey) started talking smack ... heckling Russ from a really close distance!

Good news for Mitt ... the Jazz were able to close it out and eventually won the game 113-96 ... taking a 3-1 lead in the series.

Game 5 is Wednesday in Oklahoma City ... wonder if Mitt will fuel up the jet and keep the rivalry going?

So far, no word from Westbrook ... but ya gotta think he'll have something to say eventually.

Gigi Hadid's 23rd Birthday Party ... Struts Out a Gold Mine of Models

4/24/2018 7:00 AM PDT

Gigi Hadid was the clear standout for her 23rd birthday party this week -- but her sis and smoking hot model friends came in at a very close 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th ... you get it.

Gigi led the charge Monday night heading into an undisclosed venue in Brooklyn, where she was accompanied by her younger sister, Bella, followed by a LONG line of beauties ... including the likes of Olivia Culpo, Cara Delevingne, Amber Heard, Hailey Baldwin, Lily Aldridge, Joan Smalls, Martha Hunt and Nicola Peltz. Her parents tagged along, too.

The elder Hadid sister is coming off a fresh breakup with on-again-off-again boyfriend Zayn Malik. Nothing heals a broken heart like getting together with your girls for a golden b-day throwdown, where you turn 23 on the 23rd ... we feel better already!

Kourtney Kardashian Meeting With Congress To Talk Cosmetics

4/24/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kourtney Kardashian is about to dip her toes into D.C. politics ... and it's all in the name of cosmetics.

Our Kardashian sources say Kourtney will come face-to-face with several members of Congress Tuesday in hopes of helping to reform the laws that regulate cosmetics and other personal care products. We're told Kourt's teamed up with the Environmental Working Group for the trip. 

Kourtney touched down in D.C. Monday, where she was joined by the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" camera crew to capture the meetings. Our sources say the 'KUWTK' staff booked a block of hotel rooms and a conference room, as well, but it's unclear if other family members will join. 

Kourtney's been a huge promoter of environmentally safe products in the past -- and she recently teamed up with Kylie for a cosmetics collaboration -- so it seems like Kourt wants to make sure she's putting out a healthy product for users and the planet.

Vin Diesel Rocks Groot Roots At 'Avengers: Infinity War' Premiere

4/24/2018 6:15 AM PDT

He really is Groot

Vin Diesel -- the voice of the resurrected plant hero -- really got into the shrubby spirit Monday at the "Avengers: Infinity War" premiere in Hollywood ... wearing part of Groot on his suit! 

The premiere was insane -- and even had a special cameo from Stan Lee ... who's been battling health and legal issues. He got a hero's welcome. 

Other stars include ... Chadwick Boseman, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Gwyneth Paltrow and Star-Lord himself, Chris Pratt

The one star who didn't make the premiere -- Chris Evans. Guessing it has to do with the fact he's starring in a play on Broadway at the moment. 

As for the reviews ... so far, pretty solid. Kevin Smith LOVED it. 

"I am overwhelmed. The movie is epic beyond compare."

You excited yet?!

Rich The Kid Lil Uzi Vert Is a 'Dead Friend'

4/24/2018 7:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid made it pretty clear there's no hope for reconciliation when it comes to his beef with Lil Uzi Vert and all you have to do is listen to the lyrics of his new diss song, "Dead Friends."

We got Rich the Kid out in NYC Monday and asked him about the beef. RTK dodged our question about the feud in favor of rapping the lyrics from his new track and that's telling, especially if you've seen the video.

If you haven't ... RTK puts out a hit, murders and buries what everyone believes is a Lil Uzi look-alike six feet under.

If there was any doubt the guy in the video was supposed to be Lil Uzi, RTK seems to clear that one up. 

Cardi B Did Jay Ask to Touch Your Belly?

4/24/2018 6:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

While it's unclear if Jay-Z asked to touch Cardi B's baby bump at Coachella this past weekend, it's also likely she doesn't mind -- 'cause she didn't seem to object then ... or now.

We got Cardi and her fiance, Offset, Monday leaving Mastro's in Bev Hills, where our photog asked when her baby was due -- but, more importantly, whether she signed off on Jay reaching down to quickly cup her belly in the front row of Beyonce's concert Saturday.

Cardi stays mum on that detail. But what is clear here is that she's fully baring her pregnant body in public now, and looking fantastic while doing it. 

Our guy also tried asking Offset about Kanye West allegedly telling HOT 97 radio host Ebro that he loves Donald Trump. He had an interesting response ... more flossing than talking.

Bill Cosby's Wife Camille First Appearance For Last Day of Sexual Assault Retrial

4/24/2018 6:26 AM PDT

Bill Cosby arrived for one of the most important days of his sexual assault retrial -- closing arguments -- and his wife made her first appearance in a show of support.

Camille Cosby clutched the arm of her husband, who seemed frail during the 2 weeks of testimony.  She did not attend the trial during the 11 days of testimony.

Just like the first trial, Cosby did not testify. His accuser, Andrea Constand, took the stand as she did the first time and was accused by Cosby's lawyers of being a money-grubbing liar. Five women took the stand as witnesses to support Constand, saying they were all drugged and sexually assaulted by the comedian.

The case could go to the jury as early as Tuesday afternoon.

Sean Spicer Reuniting With A Trump ... In Wax

4/24/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sean Spicer is back to repping a Trump, but this time it's the First Lady, Melania, as a wax figure at Madame Tussauds in New York City. 

Spicer is launching the "Give Melania a Voice" experience at the wax museum this Wednesday. It's Madame Tussauds' first wax figure of the First Lady and it'll be interactive, which might explain why Spicer is doing the honor. 

Visitors will be able to tweet on Melania's behalf from a tweeting station nearby, which will then go live to a FLOMT (First Lady of Madame Tussauds) account. 

Spicer will also participate in a Q&A at the unveiling about his time in the White House, but is keeping it short, just like an ol' White House press conference. The whole event is expected to last 15 minutes.

Marvin Gaye's Son Sorry, Quincy ... My Dad Didn't Get It On With Brando

4/24/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Marvin Gaye's son says his dad was a ladies' man who would've laughed off Quincy Jones' supposed revelation he got into bed with Marlon Brando.

We spoke with Marvin Gaye III who told us he was really upset Quincy had decided to keep himself relevant by spreading rumors about his father's sexual exploits, which Gaye's son says are 100% false.

Gaye III thinks Jones' bad memory got the better of him when he said in an interview, "Brando would "f*** anything. Anything! He'd f*** a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye." 

Quincy apologized later for his "wordvomit." It's interesting though ... Pryor's widow embraced Quincy's claims.

Gaye's son says his dad didn't have anything against the gay community ... it just wasn't his thing.

Gina Rodriguez Dog Mom Of 2, Again ... Drops $2.5k On Pooch

4/24/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gina Rodriguez just added another pooch to her dog family ... an adorable 9-week-old Havanese that cost $2.5k.

The "Jane the Virgin" actress pulled the trigger Sunday at Citipups Chelsea in New York City. We're told she came in several times last week to spend time with the dog, and then finally brought her other pooch, Casper, in over the weekend to make sure the two got along, which was a success.

Gina had another dog, Ted, that passed away about 2 years ago, so looks like she's trying to get Casper another pal while she pulls long hours on the "Jane the Virgin" set. 

The Havanese pup was neutered Monday, so Gina will be able to take him home this week once the pupper has recovered.
