Jay Z & Chris Paul Dad It Up At L.A. SoulCycle Class

5/25/2017 8:04 AM PDT

Here's a picture proving it's not always boats & hoes when a huge rapper and a huge NBA star hang in the off-season ... Jay Z & Chris Paul at SoulCycle like two cardio loving dads.

Hov & CP3 hit the class Wednesday, which was taught by celebrity fancy schmancy SoulCycle instructor Angela Davis, a former member of the U.S. Track and Field team.

SC is pretty competitive (we mean SoulCycle, not Shawn Carter, but he is too) but no word yet on who did better in the class.

But it was Chris Paul.

CNN's Don Lemon Loses It On Guest ... How Can You NOT Blame Trump??!!

5/25/2017 7:02 AM PDT

Don Lemon firmly believes President Trump is the reason Greg Gianforte body slammed a reporter -- and he flipped out on the air when someone dared to disagree with him.

Lemon had a panel on his show Wednesday night, and immediately stated HIS take on the Montana politician ... and clearly expected/wanted political commentator Paris Dennard to agree.

When Paris stood his ground ... Lemon went into such an attack mode, it's downright ironic.

At least this was just a verbal body slam.

UFC Champ Michael Bisping Screw Political Correctness Raid Terror Cells

5/25/2017 6:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

UFC Middleweight champ Michael Bisping is outraged at the British government for putting "political correctness" in front of the war against terror.

We got the Manchester native in L.A. Wednesday where he poured his heart out over the attack, saying he cried when he heard children were targeted.

Then Michael flew into a controlled rage, claiming the British government knows where the terrorists are hiding but they aren't raiding their homes because it would appear politically insensitive.

Screw that, he says.

Montana Politician Greg Gianforte Body Slams Reporter

5/24/2017 5:22 PM PDT

9:50 PM PT -- Greg Gianforte has been cited for misdemeanor assault by local authorities. Cops found that the nature of Jacobs' injuries did not meet the statutory elements of felony assault. Gianforte has between now and June 7 to appear in Gallatin County court.

6:20 PM PT -- Jacobs called cops after Gianforte's alleged attack to report an assault, and is reportedly getting X-rays on his elbow at a local hospital.

Gianforte's camp just released a statement ... they claim Jacobs entered the office without permission and began aggressively asking questions, and when Greg tried to grab the phone pushed in his face, Jacobs "grabbed Greg's wrist, and spun away from Greg, pushing them both to the ground."A Montana politician running for congressional office body slammed a reporter ... and the sounds of the scuffle were caught on audio tape.

Greg Gianforte -- who's gunning for a House seat in Congress in a special 2017 election -- slammed Guardian reporter, Ben Jacobs, Wednesday in Bozeman, Montana during an event ... around local TV crews, at that. He then yelled to "Get the hell out of here!"

Jacobs tweeted about the incident, saying Gianforte "broke my glasses." 

The reporter's question about the GOP healthcare bill seemed to spark the attack, but it's unclear if Gianforte faced any repercussions. Jacobs was quick to get the audio to the Guardian, which posted it soon after.

Jacobs also shared a photo of his broken glasses ... as he was being taken away in an ambulance.

Celine, J Lo, Mariah & BSB ISIS Won't Scare Us Away from Vegas

5/25/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Celine Dion, Jennifer LopezMariah Carey and the Backstreet Boys are standing firm ... they will all take the stage in Las Vegas despite an ISIS threat to hit the Strip.

We contacted various people connected to all 4 acts, and are told they have not wavered in the wake of an ISIS recruitment video soliciting lone wolf attacks on the Las Vegas Strip.

Security will be ramped up in a big way -- both because of the Ariana Grande concert bombing and the new video -- but the shows will proceed. Celine and J Lo took the stage Wednesday night and will perform again this weekend. The Backstreet Boys are set to perform next month and Mariah shortly thereafter.

That said, if people have purchased tickets but now want refunds because they're afraid to attend, our sources at The Colosseum at Caesars -- that's where Celine and Mariah perform -- tell us people will "likely" get a refund.

As for Lopez and BSB ... Planet Hollywood wouldn't give us a clear answer on the subject of refunds.

5/25/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scarlett Johansson saved the day for a couple of Katy Perry's drag queen performers during the finale of "Saturday Night Live" ... by getting them into the after-party.

A group of Katy's drag queens -- who performed with her for 'SNL's' final episode this season -- tried attending the official after-party at Rockefeller Center in NYC ... but were denied because they weren't on the list.

The band of 15 knew Katy could only have a few guests, so they understood.

As they walked away, 2 drag queens ran into Scarlett and 'SNL' cast member, Colin Jost -- whom she's reportedly seeing. Scarlett was on a mission, telling the group, "That's ridiculous! Everyone knows that drag queens should always get into a party -- come with us!"

And just like that ... the drag queens got in. Swish Swish.

We spoke to Magana who says she's "most definitely" suing Cyborg for her medical bills and has been cooperating with authorities ... who she claims are pursuing felony assault charges.

(As of now, Cyborg has only been cited for misdemeanor battery.)

Angela also calls B.S. on people who say she had it coming after taunting Cyborg online ... saying Justino needs to have thicker skin.

Magana also sent a message to Cyborg.

"You f***ed up, big time. You can't do what you did. I'm gonna get you as hard as I can get you." 

'Clerks' Star Lisa Spoonauer Battled Illnesses for Years ... Death Still Shocked Family

5/25/2017 12:30 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

'Clerks' star Lisa Spoonauer had been sick for years prior to her death last week ... still her family says her death was far from expected.

Sources close to Lisa's immediate family tell TMZ ... she'd been battling several chronic illnesses for 10 years prior to her death Saturday. The illnesses were not disclosed, but were described as degenerative.

We're told Lisa's family was aware of her ailments, but never suspected her condition was bad enough to kill her. Although she'd been in and out of hospitals for years, she died at home.

The coroner says Lisa died of natural causes, which her doctor signed off on -- a sure sign one of her many illnesses triggered the death.

"Clerks" writer and director, Kevin Smith, shared memories of casting her in the movie that changed his life. Lisa was 44.

Devastated to report that #LisaSpoonauer, who played Caitlin in #clerks, has passed away. In 1992, I went looking for Lisa without knowing either who she was or the integral role she'd play in my life. I'd held a night of open auditions at the #firstavenueplayhouse (where we found @briancohalloran and @marilynghigliotti) but the perfect Caitlin Bree never walked through the door. So I popped into an acting class at Brookdale Community College and watched the students from the back. Lisa was easily the most natural and authentic voice in the room. She didn't sound like she was acting at all; she delivered scripted dialogue as if she was inventing her conversation in the moment, like people do in real life. Captivated, I approached Lisa cold in the parking lot after the class and said "This is gonna sound creepy but... Do you wanna be in a movie?" Fearlessly, she replied "Not if it's porn." I told her a bit about Clerks and gave her a copy of the script and my phone number. She called me a few days later and said "Well it's not porn, but everybody talks like it is. It's funny. I'll do it." A complete stranger at first, Lisa quickly became one of the most important people I'd ever meet when she joined Brian, #JeffAnderson, Marilyn, @jaymewes, @samosier, @davidkleinasc and me as one of the chief architects of my first film. We rehearsed for a month straight in the store after hours, where Lisa perfected Caitlin (and fell in love with Jeff). The first night of the shoot, Lisa had to maneuver her way through a seven minute scene with Brian in the video store, when Caitlin finally shows up in the movie. Lisa and Brian CRUSHED it in one long take that still remains one of my favorite scenes I've ever shot - not because it shows off any directorial flare (it doesn't) but because it exemplified how great the performers were since we never had to cut away from their 2-shot. But as strong an actress as she was, Lisa was an even more excellent Mother to her daughter Mia. Whenever we'd Facebook later in life, she'd gush about her baby girl proudly. My heart goes out to Tom, Mia and Lisa's family. Thank you for dreaming my dream with me. You changed my life, Lisa.
