True Thompson Birth Certificate Confirms No Middle Name

4/19/2018 1:13 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's baby girl is officially registered in the system in Ohio ... and she's without a middle name.

The birth certificate -- obtained by TMZ -- mostly confirms what we already knew thanks to Khloe ... True weighed in at 6 lbs 13 oz and was 21 inches long. It also confirms True was born without a middle name, much like her cousins North, Saint, Stormi and Chicago.

We broke the story ... Tristan was there for True's birth despite the tumultuous time for the couple, and Kourtney, Kim, Kris and Khloe's BFF Malika were also by her side. This is Khloe and the Cavs star's first child together.

As we reported ... True is a family name -- it was the name of Kris' grandfather -- but it's interesting Khloe chose to use Thompson as the baby's last name in wake of his cheating scandal when she didn't have to ... and their relationship is in ruins.

Regardless ... welcome to the world, True!

Oprah Sued Accused of Stealing Idea for 'Greenleaf'

4/19/2018 12:48 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Oprah jacked the idea for a TV show about a powerful family and their megachurch and didn't even try to hide it ... according to a new suit.

A screenwriter named Shannan Lynette Wynn and a pastor she teamed up with to create a TV drama called "Justice & Glory" claim they met with Oprah's team at OWN in fall 2014 and pitched their idea ... and got great feedback.

According to the docs ... they were lured by OWN for more ideas and versions of their pitch, but eventually got cut off. Years later, they claim "Greenleaf" premiered and featured the exact same characters and storylines from their original pitch.

Interesting note -- Wynn and the pastor claim they pitched their idea to ABC previously as well, but were told there was no interest ... but they believe ABC was in cahoots with Oprah to rip them off.

Wynn and the pastor are asking for hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages. We reached out to Oprah's team ... no word back so far.

WWE Gets Restraining Order Against Poop-Smearing Fan

4/19/2018 11:44 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The WWE got an emergency restraining order against an obsessed fan who carried out a poop-smearing attack on a WWE training facility ... fearing he would strike again. 

TMZ Sports has obtained court docs showing Vince McMahon's company had a very real fear of Armando Alejandro Montalvo -- who's allegedly been harassing the company since 2015. 

According to the court docs, Montalvo smeared his own feces all over the walls at the WWE Training Center in Orlando back in July 2015. 

He continued his bizarre campaign against the company in the following days ... wearing makeshift wrestling costumes, banging on the doors and threatening staffers.

On at least one occasion, he was subdued by cops at gunpoint. 

In March 2018, Montalvo again surfaced at a WWE event venue in Florida and began harassing employees -- screaming, "My new wrestling nickname is Generation Flex because my d*ck and my balls is bigger than Generation Ex."

WWE says they learned Montalvo posted an Instagram message on April 4 cryptically threatening WWE wrestlers and staff -- and rushed to court to get an immediate restraining order against him because they fear he's a serious threat. 

WWE says Montalvo has also threatened to use his own semen in a biological attack. 

Court records show the restraining order was granted. 

Still, Montalvo continues to post videos on social media harassing WWE wrestlers.

'Night Court' Star Harry Anderson 911 Transcript Released ... Wife Says, 'He's Cold, Stiff'

4/19/2018 9:38 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Night Court" star Harry Anderson was dead well before paramedics arrived, according to his wife who called 911. 

TMZ obtained the transcript from the 911 call Elizabeth Morgan placed earlier this week to authorities in North Carolina after Harry apparently went into cardiac arrest in his sleep. She tells the operator ... "His hand -- he's cold. He's not ice cold, but he's definitely cold. His eyes are partially open, uh, but he's not looking at anything, he's not responding."

In the call, Elizabeth declines help for performing CPR, saying she believes it's too late. 

She also mentions Harry suffered a series of strokes at the end of January after battling the flu.

As we reported ... Anderson was found dead Monday when paramedics arrived, according to dispatch audio. Authorities said no foul play is suspected. His son, Dashiell, told us his father died from natural causes.

Harry was 65.

John Witherspoon Starbucks Wants to Act Liberal Now Training 'Don't Mean S***'

4/19/2018 11:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Witherspoon says Starbucks is serving up a hot cup of bulls*** with their new anti-biased training in the wake of two black men being arrested at one of their shops.

We got the actor Thursday at LAX and asked for his take on what happened at a 'Bucks in Philly last week -- namely, the two men being hauled off to jail for hanging out and waiting inside for a friend. John says it's terrible what happened ... but he's got solutions.

He says the African-American community should start opening up their own businesses -- including coffee shops -- for just about everything imaginable, minimizing the need for Starbucks. Although admittedly, he says he doesn't drink Joe himself.

He also tells us what he'd do if the arrest happened to him, and why Starbucks closing up shop for one day in May to train employees on racial bias is just lip-service.

Demi Lovato & Bella Thorne Girls Girls Girls Night Out At the Strip Club!!!

4/19/2018 11:09 AM PDT

Demi Lovato and Bella Thorne's policy for girls' night out is, apparently, the more the merrier ... especially if the more includes chicks on stripper poles.

Demi, Bella and a group of gal pals hit up Crazy Girls Strip Club Wednesday night in Hollywood. Not sure who their friends were, but the evening had all the markings of someone's bachelorette party ... or maybe just a wild birthday.

No dudes in their party ... although, we're sure they drew plenty of male attention inside the club. Afterward, they all piled into a limo to keep the party moving.

Ex-Disney chicks. Always a fun night. 

Prince's Death No Criminal Charges Investigators Can't Find Fentanyl Source

4/19/2018 9:16 AM PDT
Breaking News

Prince likely had NO idea he was even taking the fentanyl that ended up killing him, according to prosecutors who have found no one to criminally charge for his death.

Carver County Attorney Mark Metz said Prince had taken counterfeit Vicodin that was laced with fentanyl. He said they could not find sufficient evidence of who supplied the counterfeit pills, and as a result ... there will be no criminal charges in his death. 

As we reported, a toxicology report showed Prince had "exceedingly high" levels of the opioid in his system when he died -- even for a chronic pain patient.

Metz added it was likely Prince had also taken one of the counterfeit Vicodin when he overdosed on a private jet the week before he died. TMZ broke the story ... Prince made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois, where emergency responders gave him 2 shots of Narcan to save his life.

Metz said Prince had been prescribed Percocet by Dr. Michael Schulenberg days before he overdosed, but says it played no role in his death. TMZ obtained a photo of Prince pacing outside a Walgreens the day before he died, waiting for a prescription to be filled.

Schulenberg had prescribed the Percocet to Prince's bodyguard, Kirk Johnson, as a cover for Prince. The federal government went after Schulenberg for that violation, and he just reached a settlement ... agreeing to pay a $30k fine. 

Prince died at 57 at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota on April 21, 2016. 

The Obamas Summer's Almost Here So, Let's Build a Swimming Pool!!!

4/19/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Barack and Michelle Obama have decided 2 summers without a swimming pool were enough ... so with another summer around the corner, they are finally gonna build one.

Obama's post-presidential pad in Washington, D.C. -- the one they first rented back in 2016 and then plunked down $8.1 million to buy last year -- is undergoing construction for a new swimming pool.

According to building permits, obtained by TMZ, work includes construction for a brand spankin' new residential swimming pool ... an in-ground pool, of course. Barack was the 44th prez, after all. The pool will also feature a terrace of sorts.

Barack and Michelle got the permit application process going in January ... and there has been a series of reviews in the months that followed -- from plumbing and electrical to several mechanical corrections.

Nothing like a staycation after a SICK 2017 vacation.

Kanye West New Album's Out But Only for Charlamagne

4/19/2018 12:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West certainly looks happy about his new music, but so far ... Charlamagne Tha God's the only person we know of who's heard it.

We got Kanye leaving his office in Calabasas with "The Breakfast Club" host Wednesday night, and asked if the 2 listened to Ye's new -- and highly anticipated -- album.

Kanye doesn't say much ... but the smile on his face speaks volumes.

Our sources tell us Charlamagne got to listen to a good portion of the album -- not just "some s**t" -- and was with the rapper to do an interview about it.

As we reported ... Kanye hit the mountains of Wyoming last month to work on the album with numerous other artists -- including Drake -- but everything's been kept under wraps since the creative process began last year.

Looks like the big reveal is approaching, though.

Stormy Daniels Trump Can't Shake Me ... And I'm Still Shaking My Boobs!

4/19/2018 7:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stormy Daniels is flaunting her multitasking, and that's not a euphemism -- she was busy stripping in Detroit Tuesday night, while still keeping the pressure on President Trump.

The porn star did 3 shows at Truth Gentlemen’s Club in the D. These pics are from the early show at 8 PM ... which might explain the thin crowd. The club was expecting a capacity crowd of 800, but no dice.

Can't knock Stormy's hustle though -- she made the appearance smack in the heat of her battle with Donald Trump and his attorney, Michael Cohen. Days after going to court in NYC, and unveiling the infamous sketch of the guy who allegedly threatened her ... there she was shaking her real moneymaker.

If the Trump suit doesn't work out ... girl's gotta make a buck.

Lil Yachty The World Is Mine Now, Cam'ron ... Thanks to My $250k Chain!

4/19/2018 8:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If Lil Yachty's insane spinning globe chain looks familiar, that's because it used to dangle around rapper Cam'ron's neck before it got a major overhaul by a famous NYC jeweler. 

We got Yachty leaving Rafaello & Co. Jewelers in the Big Apple Wednesday night with his new "Yachty's World" chain turning around his neck and it's got a super cool backstory. It once belonged to Killa Cam -- back in the early 2000s -- and read "Killa Cam Harlem World," but Cam traded it in for other pieces.

Gabriel Jacobs from Rafaello & Co. tells us it was next in line to be melted until Yachty stepped up and decided to give it the update. The spinning globe is battery operated and covered in about 150 carats of diamonds. Total price ... $250k.

Yachty was definitely thrilled with the purchase and not too concerned with any haters when we got him moments after he picked it up.  

The World is yours @lilyachty #killa
