Adrian Grenier Yo, Starbs ... Get Your S*** Together On the Straw Thing, That Is

4/19/2018 6:44 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Adrian Grenier is pissed at Starbucks, but it's not for the reason you might immediately think.

We got the "Entourage" star Wednesday night leaving the "Party with a Purpose" event at The Peppermint Club in WeHo, where we asked about his environmental initiative, #StopSucking, in which he's asking the mermaid coffee chain to drop their single-use plastic straws since they flood the ocean.

Considering Adrian recently pitched his effort at a Starbucks shareholders meeting, you know he means business with this straw thing. Oddly enough ... he failed to address the recent controversy over a couple black guys being arrested at a Starbucks in Philly.

Either way, check out his lobbying effort with our photog ... it's much less PC than any of his social media posts.

Orlando Brown Swaps Inmate Gear for a New Suit ... After Released from Jail

4/19/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Orlando Brown is back on the outside, and he's got himself nice new duds, too ... all 'cause he was bold enough to ask a random dude near the jail to give him the suit off his back.

TMZ has obtained video from just minutes after Orlando was released from L.A. County Jail Tuesday after a warrant hearing, when we're told he saw two dudes -- Kelvin Asiedu and Raptographer -- doing a photo shoot down the street ... and asked one of them for his outfit -- literally, the one the guy was wearing.

Sure enough, the guys recognized Orlando from his Disney days and happily obliged. Surprisingly, the suit fit ... albeit, it did take a little time to get the pants on.

As we reported ... Orlando was arrested by a bounty hunter in Vegas last week and extradited to L.A. based on outstanding warrants for his arrest. The entire ordeal was pretty dramatic, to say the least ... with Orlando being found in a closet in his underwear

He's got a full getup now, though -- and hey, it's from Zara of all places. You seeing this, Raven?!

Lil Xan I'm Not Boycotting Starbucks So One Grande Iced Latte, Please!!!

4/19/2018 6:39 AM PDT

Lil Xan and fellow rapper $teven Cannon are not on the boycott Starbucks train ... as they proudly showed Wednesday.

Lil Xan and Cannon hit up java central in WeHo and seemed to be making a statement. As you know, there is outrage -- especially in the African-American community -- after 2 black men were arrested for sitting inside a Philly Starbucks while waiting for a friend.

BTW ... the 2 men who were arrested went on TV Thursday and said the boycott won't do squat.  

John Travolta My Fave Director Experience Ever ... (Sorry, Quentin & Oliver)

4/19/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Travolta just had his best experience ever on a movie set -- after 40-plus years in the biz -- and he says it's all thanks to his amazing director, whose name will probably shock you.

We got John and his wife, Kelly Preston, at producer Oscar Generale's Bev Hills estate recently -- and he went off about one of the many films he's just completed, and the guy who was at the helm.

Remember, Travolta's been directed by Quentin Tarantino, Nora Ephron, Oliver Stone and John Woo. Still, he singled out rocker Fred Durst's directing skills!

Yep, that's Limp Bizkit Durst ... who's impressing the hell out of Travolta as a director. The duo worked together on the upcoming thriller "Moose."

JT plays an obsessed fan who destroys his favorite action star's life, and you gotta see him gush about Fred. It's impressive, considering the resumes of Travolta's previous directors.

Also impressive? He didn't make a single "Nookie" joke. He's better than us. 

Cardi B Wore $400k in Diamonds At Coachella

4/19/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B wasn't just glowing from her pregnancy during her Coachella performance Sunday ... she was also glowing thanks to a hefty, super expensive chain around her neck.

Celebrity jeweler Eliantte Avianne of Avianne & Co. tells us Cardi put the idea of doing a Lola Bunny Chain in his ear about two months ago, but waited until 5 days before her main stage Coachella debut to actually put in the order.

Avianne had to work overtime to get it done since the chain and pendant are littered with 110 carats of diamonds valued between $350k and $400k.

Cardi clearly liked it because she gave Avianne a shout-out on her social media from the festival wearing the expensive ice around her neck during Migos' set.

Serena Williams Bel-Air Home Price Drop ... Advantage Potential Buyer!!!

4/19/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Serena Williams is making an adjustment -- to her real estate game -- by slashing the price of her Bel-Air home ... to just a shade under $10 million.

The tennis star put the 6,101 sq ft, 6-bed, 7-bath mansion -- featuring a pool, gym, bar, salon and private hiking trails -- on the market for $12 mil back in October ... but apparently hasn't had any takers.

With a new price tag of $9,995,000, Serena's still set to make a nice profit on the sale -- she bought the place for just over $6 mil in 2006.

As we reported ... Serena plunked down $6.7 mil on a Beverly Hills pad right around the same time she listed her Bel-Air palace with Greg Piechota from KASE Real Estate.

So ... don't worry about her not having a place to stay in L.A.

'Alita: Battle Angel' Star No Threat to Ex ... Judge Tosses Restraining Order

4/19/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rosa Salazar -- who's starring in the upcoming James Cameron/Robert Rodriguez blockbuster "Alita: Battle Angel" -- has one less real-life battle to worry about ... TMZ has learned.

Court sources tell us ... Rosa squared off against her ex-boyfriend, Sam Setzer, and his lawyers Wednesday in front of a judge over claims he made last month that she harassed and threatened him after a breakup.

We're told the judge heard both sides and decided to dismiss the case and toss the restraining order Setzer had gotten against Rosa. The judge said there were no grounds for it.

Rosa's appeared in "American Horror Story" and the 'Maze Runner' films. She's playing the title character in 'Alita' -- with co-stars Jennifer Connelly, Michelle Rodriguez and Christoph Waltz -- which comes out later this year.

James Harrison Brady Retiring Wouldn't Shock Me ... BTW, Here Are My Plans!

4/19/2018 12:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

James Harrison just hung it up, but could Tom Brady be next??

With rumors swirling on Brady potentially not playing this season, we asked Deebo himself -- Tom's teammate last year -- and he told us it would NOT surprise him ... given the sacrifices TB, Gisele and the kids make so he can play ball.

“That’s up to Tom and what decisions he and his family make as far as what he wants to do, and if he does want to continue to play, what he’s willing to sacrifice and the family is willing to sacrifice,” Harrison told TMZ Sports.

James would know -- telling us that's why he decided to retire earlier this week.

Specifically, the Pro Bowl LB says he's interested in introducing his 2 sons to tackle football -- and possibly even coaching them! 

Deebo says it's a tough decision for any parent to make given everything that's out on CTE -- but explained why he wants his sons exposed to it before they hit their teens. 

"Everything in life has dangers ... I'm not gonna live in fear of things that could possibly happen."

4/18/2018 5:43 PM PDT
Breaking News

Gregg Popovich's wife, Erin, has died ... according to a statement released by the San Antonio Spurs.

Erin died Wednesday, but the cause of death is unknown at this time. The news comes as a shock to players and fans -- although it's being reported she'd been ill for an extended period ... Coach Popovich hadn't said anything publicly.

Erin and Gregg were married for 4 decades and have 2 kids and 2 grandchildren.

Spurs GM R.C. Buford says, "We mourn the loss of Erin ... She was a strong, wonderful, kind, intelligent woman who provided love, support and humor to all of us."

The Spurs are scheduled to take on the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of their playoff series Thursday night in San Antonio. Kevin Durant was told the sad news at practice and was at a loss for words.

Erin was 67.

RIP

Kourtney Kardashian My 39th Bday is All About My Kids

4/18/2018 4:21 PM PDT

Kourtney Kardashian's ringing in her 39th birthday at a fancy Malibu restaurant, but she coulda gone to Chuck E. Cheese ... because she celebrated with all of her kids.

Kourtney had Mason, Penelope and Reign in tow as she left Taverna Tony Wednesday afternoon. Looks like Kourt and the fam enjoyed cupcakes during lunch, complete with candles ... although far less than 39 of 'em. Penelope got to do the honors.

She also got some bday love from new mom, Khloe ... who posted some fave shots of their sisterly adventures -- with the caption, "I can't imagine life without you!"

As we reported ... Kourt and the rest of the sisters flew to Cleveland to support Khloe during, and right after, she gave birth to True -- smack in the middle of Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal

You'd totally understand if she forgot to give Kourt a birthday shout out -- but the sisters got each other's backs.

Calvin Harris Sued by Blind Man Over Mega-Expensive Home Rental Deal

4/18/2018 3:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4/20 6:56 AM PT -- A rep for Calvin tells us, "The claims filed against Calvin Harris are absurd and without merit. We are confident that the Court will dismiss the frivolous lawsuit."Calvin Harris is being sued by a blind man who claims the DJ screwed him over in a super-expensive home deal.

Harry Moscatel claims he leased Harris' home above the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood last year for $35,000 a month. He put down a $70,000 security deposit and moved in ... according to the docs.

Moscatel's attorney, Scott Doonan, tells us ... the house had problems from the beginning, including hot water and heating issues, faulty doors and a sound system that never worked right.

We're told Moscatel and his family bailed on the home, and he now claims the lease agreement was invalid ... in part because he's a 79-year-old blind man and protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act. The lawsuit does not explain why his disability would allow him out of the lease.

The house was once the love nest of Calvin and Taylor Swift when the 2 were an item.

Moscatel makes other technical arguments about the lease and is asking a judge to declare it null and void. He's also preparing to sue Harris to get a portion of his rent and his security deposit back.

BTW ... Moscatel made news last year after a hoverboard caught fire and burned his multi-million-dollar mansion down. Presumably, that's why he rented Calvin's pad.

We reached out to Calvin's people, so far no word back.
