Beyonce Praise Be ... I Own a Church Now!!!

5/20/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Holy lord ... Beyonce now has her very own church!

Queen Bey's the new owner of a stone structured, 7,500 sq. ft house of God in The Big Easy. The New Orleans church -- which is more than 100 years old -- was listed at $850,000 ... but it's unclear if she got a divine discount.

We're told Beyonce's church was built in the early 1900s, but has been out of commission as a place of worship for some time due to its church members passing away.

Looks like it could be revival time though ... and Beyonce shouldn't have any issues finding folks willing to get in formation and join her congregation. Her sister, Solange, lives nearby, too.

Speaking of ... a San Francisco church held the first ever "Beyonce Mass" a few weeks ago and had more than 900 people show up for it.

Imagine what the turnout would be at the actual Church of Bey.

Johnny Manziel Mellow Yellow ... Looks Good on Him

5/20/2018 11:56 AM PDT

Johnny Manziel is back on the gridiron for the first time in a long time -- here's hoping he can rein it in, eh? 

Manziel was spotted debuting his new CFL jersey Sunday for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Ron Joyce Stadium, where he was meeting the team and tossing the ball around.

As we reported ... Manziel announced last week that he'd signed with the Canadian football team nearly 2 years after he was released from the Cleveland Browns, following a long list of off-the-field issues. He agreed to a 2-season deal. 

The Tiger-Cats got a game coming up in a couple weeks here against the Toronto Argonauts. Looks like the QB's getting his practice in early and often.

Nikki Bella & John Cena Back Together ... At Least for a Day

5/19/2018 1:29 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Cena made the trek down to San Diego to try to win Nikki Bella back, but as we reported ... it may take more than just AAdvantage Miles.

Nikki and John were spotted together in the Mission Hills neighborhood of San Diego Saturday, strolling down the street after getting their fix of java.

John has been on a unrelenting campaign to win Nikki back ... after she broke up with him because he would not budge on the issue of having children.

Nikki told us a few days ago she now believes John has had a change of heart and would like for her to have his kids, but she says all the drama has made her question the relationship. She told us she loves John and would like things to work out, but she needs time to think.

It's overcast in Southern California, so we don't know if John commissioned a skywriting plane.

Shaq I Could've Beaten De La Hoya's Ass ... 'I Held Back'

5/20/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Golden Boy ain't gonna like this ...

Shaq says he gave Oscar De La Hoya a pass when the two men fought back in 2009 ... telling TMZ Sports he "held back" on ODLH because he didn't REALLY want to beat up his friend. 

Oscar & Diesel squared off for his old TV show, "Shaq Vs." where the big fella would go up against other pro athletes in their different sports ... with awesome results. 

De La Hoya won via decision ... but when we got O'Neal out in NYC he told our guy he basically took a dive.

"I held back 'cause he was my friend."

Not everybody got the homie treatment though ... Shaq told us he had another fight, this time with boxing great Sugar Shane Mosley where he "turned it up a little."

We found the video -- and yeah, Shaq hit Mosley with some REAL power shots and bullied him around the ring like a rag doll. 

Mosley ended up winning that fight in a 5-round decision (and hit Shaq with some power shots of his own) ... but it's clear Shaq was trying to send a message that he's no joke when it comes to fighting.

Taylor Swift brought her long-time bud Selena Gomez up on stage Saturday night at her Rose Bowl concert.

Selena and Taylor sang "Hands to Myself" -- Selena's song -- in the middle of the "Reputation" concert in Pasadena.

The stadium packed for a second time. Taylor also performed there Friday night.

Selena told the crowd, about Taylor ... "The reason why she has been one of my best friends is because this person has never, ever judge a single decision I've made."

Agree to agree. 

Kylie Jenner Fancy Schmancy Lunch in Malibu

5/20/2018 6:42 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner took a time out from making money for a Saturday afternoon out with her pals.

Kylie and company hit up Nobu in Malibu. She sat shotgun in a super sweet Lamborghini as they headed back to her home in Hidden Hills.

She probably picked up the tab ... Kylie made a fortune Friday when thousands of people lined up in San Francisco to hit up her pop-up shop ... touted as featuring "custom San Francisco merchandise."

No sign of Stormi or Travis Scott

Justin Timberlake made a surprise appearance at David Grutman’s Story Nightclub in Miami Saturday night.

The party was hosted by Puff Daddy and Justin was watching in the wings, when he got a mic and sang "Holy Grail."

Justin was in Miami for his "Man of the Woods" tour, where he performed earlier in the night at the American Airlines Arena. The tour is doing super well.

Justin's next stop ... Houston, Texas on Wednesday.

'Insecure' Star Amanda Seales It's True ... Tipping Has Racist Roots

5/20/2018 6:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Seales told our photog why she re-tweeted a post explaining that tipping has racist roots.

We got the "Insecure" star Saturday night at Hollywood Improv, where she took us back to the days of reconstruction, where tipping became a substitute for paying black people for their work.

There's a trend to do away with tipping and pay service providers such as waiters a decent salary, but the prevailing practice is still paying close to minimum wage and with tips on the back end.

Viral 'Hot Cop' Warns Survivor Cast Members Social Media Will Kill You!!!

5/20/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The "hot cop" who scored a spot on the new season of 'Survivor' is schooling the other contestants on what he's learned from his 15 minutes of fame by warning them to delete "anything that can bite you in the ass over social media."

TMZ has obtained an email Daniel Rengering fired off in a chain with 12 other 'Survivor' contestants where he admits to creeping on their socials and warning them to "fine-tooth comb" anything that could publicly crucify them online.

Daniel warns the "Internet is a cruel, heartless bitch" where "trolls are going to work twice that hard to tear you down, spread nasty gossip and ruin your reputation."

Daniel's seen it happen firsthand after one of the cops in the photo that made him famous was accused of posting several anti-Semitic remarks to his Facebook in 2011, so it appears Daniel's intentions aren't to gloat, but rather to warn the others.

He also adds, "If a small-town country boy like me can host on the GRAMMYs, Oscars and SAG Awards Red Carpets, from a single viral photo, you guys can turn this opportunity into so much more."

Lil Tay Cops Attitude Over 'Million Dollar Headphone Deal'

EXCLUSIVE

Lil Tay shaded our photog for daring to asking about her rumored million-dollar deal with Tunes Audio Headphones.

We got the 9-year-old hitting up Nice Guy Saturday in WeHo, where we dared to ask about her supposed score. By the way, we're not vouching for the deal ... at all.

Nonetheless ... she fired back at us for asking the self-proclaimed "World's Youngest Flexer" about the deal.

Her mom was recently fired from her job at a Vancouver real estate company for her involvement in Tay's career.

SNL Royal Wedding Reception ... We're Just as Screwed Up as You!!!

5/20/2018 6:36 AM PDT

SNL parodied the Royal wedding reception of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and the funny is also relatable ... everyone has screwed up family members.

Mikey Day played Prince Harry and walked through the party introducing friends and relatives from both sides ... from a royal with pedophile tendencies to a "Deal or No Deal" briefcase model.

Shout out to Alex Moffat for his Prince William impersonation, and Tina Fey for Auntie Creepy.

Of course a portion of the reception is devoted to Meghan's warring fam ... truth is, in this case reality is way more interesting than parody.

One hilarious line ... when one of the partygoers asks the Queen if she's pissed off over "The Crown," because the show makes her look like a bitch!

Afroman Settles Lawsuit With Punching Victim

5/20/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Afroman won't have to go back to court for punching a woman onstage, because he's settled the lawsuit with the victim ... TMZ has learned.

The trial was set to begin Tuesday, but sources close to the case confirm that it's been taken off the calendar ... code for settlement.

Haley Byrd sued both Afroman and Kress Live, the company that owns the venue where Afroman had been performing in 2015 when Haley crashed the stage and got decked by the rapper. She suffered a concussion from the blow.

Afroman already pled guilty to assault, avoiding jail time and getting off with only anger management classes and drug testing. He had blamed the incident on the venue and its lack of security.

No word on the terms of the settlement.
