George H.W. Bush Celebs Pay Respects ... At Texas Funeral

12/6/2018 9:37 AM PST

You can clearly tell just how much George H.W. Bush was liked and respected simply by the incredible number of celebs who turned out for the late President's funeral in the Lone Star State.  

Reba McEntire sang "The Lord's Prayer" and The Oak Ridge Boys gave a powerful rendition of "Amazing Grace" during the funeral services Thursday at St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston.

Everything's bigger in Texas, including Houston sports stars -- past and present -- who turned out to say goodbye to 41 ...  former Rockets centers Yao Ming and Dikembe Mutombo towered over the crowd, while Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt brought the muscle with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Naturally, Chuck Norris was there, and legendary Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda made the trek from Los Angeles. 

Our 41st president, who died last Friday in Houston, will be buried at his Presidential Library at Texas A&M in nearby College Station.

12/6/2018 8:46 AM PST

Amal Clooney's got her hands full ... with her bundled-up twins, their teddy bears and even a go bag for her little girl.

George's wife was flying solo Thursday morn with the couple's 1-and-a-half-year-old twins, Alexander and Ella, as the trio left the Four Seasons and headed out into the chilly streets of New York City.

It is a pretty rare sighting of their kids, and we gotta say ... even toddler Clooneys look stylish wherever they go.

As we reported ... George and Amal got dressed to the nines Wednesday night to attend the United Nations Gala in New York with his parents. Amal, who is a human rights lawyer, was one of the speakers.

But for now ... it's back to mommy daycare.

Meek Mill Prison Reform Talk Not Worth It If ...

12/6/2018 9:05 AM PST

Meek Mill says there's a limit to how much he'll do when it comes to prison reform, because he's not trying to piss off people and get locked up again. 

The rapper joined "The Breakfast Club" Thursday morning when the conversation turned to prison reform. Charlamagne Tha God tells Meek that when he talks about prison reform, that's essentially messing with "the white man's" money 'cause private prisons are thriving businesses.

That's when Meek straight-up says all he needs is a warning and he'll quit talking about it. To be fair ... Meek still wants to help, but he's making it clear NOTHING comes ahead of his family and, of course, freedom.

Meek's been on a mission to change the criminal justice system since his release from prison in April. He's so committed, he planned to visit President Trump for a White House meeting ... before canceling at Jay-Z's request.

Nevertheless ... Meek's given back plenty to his community since his release, but everyone's got a limit.

Tristan Thompson Fined $15k for Flippin' the Bird At Cavaliers-Nets Game

12/6/2018 8:35 AM PST
Breaking News

Tristan Thompson's one-finger salute just cost him a chunk of change ... 'cause the Cavs star's been slapped with a $15k fine for flipping off hecklers at the Nets game on Monday.

TMZ Sports posted the video ... T.T. snapped at the end of the Cavs-Nets game at Barclays Center ... flipping off some courtside fans after Cleveland sealed the W.

The league announced Thompson's punishment on Thursday ... and it's a bargain compared to the $25k fines handed to Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley for their recent fan incidents.

It's the only recent blemish in Thompson's hot streak ... as the dude is averaging a double-double so far this season and has been helping the Cavs keep from being a complete embarrassment.

Let's keep it a buck -- T.T. is in the middle of an $82 million contract, so he's not even blinking.

Cardi B All My Single Ladies ... This is How You Handle a Breakup!!

12/6/2018 7:21 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B's not crying a river -- publicly, anyway --- after breaking up with Offset ... she's too damn busy getting that money.

We got the rapper at E11EVEN nightclub Wednesday night in Miami where she showed off some very colorful locks (very Tekashi-esque of her) and a super tight, see-through dress. Cardi grabbed the mic and did her thing ... showing no signs of a heartbreak. Sorry, Offset.

Life in the single lane seems to suit her well ... she's taking selfies, yukking it up and making it rain out there. Bad Bunny and Teyana Taylor also showed her some love at her table.

You can also see Cardi rapping to her track, "Money" ... and even when "Drip" featuring Migos started blaring through the speakers, things did NOT seem to get awkward. She kept her cool.

Keeping it cool seems to be her thing. As we reported ... Cardi cut Offset loose on Tuesday and said the two remain good friends and business partners. But, as we first reported ... the fact Offset tried orchestrating a threesome with a Cardi wannabe hit too close to home.

Home might be where the heart is ... but Miami's definitely where the money is.

And, that's where Cardi be.

Lance Armstrong Shades Alex Rodriguez I'm a Better Person Than You!

12/6/2018 6:37 AM PST
Breaking News

Lance Armstrong is still pissed that fellow admitted cheater Alex Rodriguez has essentially been forgiven by society while he's still considered a villain -- since Lance says he's done WAY more to help people.

"A-Rod didn't raise half a BILLION dollars and try to save people's lives," Armstrong said on the "Today" show ... obviously referring to the work he did with the Livestrong foundation. 

Armstrong then threw even more shade at the baseball player ... sarcastically saying, "Look, it's great when somebody hits home runs and maybe does an event here and there for the Boys & Girls Club."

Armstrong has previously griped about A-Rod ... telling "Freakonomics Radio" back in July, "The one key thing is that Alex Rodriguez was allowed to come back and play. And, Alex Rodriguez was part of a team sport. And thirdly, Alex Rodriguez never stood for anything else other than baseball."

"So, I was never allowed to come back to my sport at any level, and most people viewed it as an individual sport. And, I stood for much more than just cycling."

Offset & Cardi B Alleged Side Chick Was in Nicki Minaj Music Video

12/6/2018 8:12 AM PST

Cardi B's breakup with Offset over alleged infidelity just got a little more dramatic -- 'cause the girl he's accused of creepin' with was in a Nicki Minaj video.

Turns out, Summer Bunni -- who Offset allegedly solicited for a threeway with another female rapper -- starred in Tekashi69 and Nicki's "FEFE" music vid. SB posted a clip of herself in the production shooting whipped cream in her mouth.

That's what they call a star turn in show biz.

As we reported ... Summer says she feels terrible about possibly being the reason Cardi and Offset split, and tearfully told us she never meant to be a homewrecker. 

It's unclear if Summer was trying to stick it to Cardi by working with her nemesis. The "FEFE" vid came out in July -- meanwhile, Nicki and Cardi's bad blood boiled over in September. So, this could all be coincidence, but drama-filled coincidence, for sure.

Remember, Nicki also hired 2 strippers Cardi allegedly attacked earlier this year to star in her newest music vid.

Scott Eastwood Close Encounters of the Orca Kind ... Maybe Too Close?

12/6/2018 7:03 AM PST

Scott Eastwood had a very up close and personal run-in with a couple killer whales while paddle boarding down in Mexico -- and while it's incredible to see ... it's also kinda scary.

Clint Eastwood's son posted a video of himself out in the waters of Baja California Sur, where he says he and a pal stopped for lunch before paddling out to sea after hearing some orcas in the water.

Scott says they thought the wild beasts had disappeared by the time they got out there -- but, apparently, some whale noises and splashing around made 2 orcas circle back ... and, boy, did they get close. Check out the clip -- Scott and co. could've touched 'em if they wanted.

It's a majestic scene for sure, but ya gotta wonder how risky the dip with the whales really was. While orcas aren't known to attack humans ... it's always a possibility they could.

Worth it? Scott sure seems to think so.

Thousand Oaks Shooting Country Night Returns to Bar One Month After Massacre

12/6/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Thousand Oaks bar where 12 people were killed in a shooting rampage nearly a month ago is making a valiant effort to return to normalcy. First order of business -- hosting country night again.

The Borderline Bar & Grill's management is bringing their popular Country Line Dancing Night to a new venue, because they're not yet ready to open their doors. The event will be held at The Canyon Club in Agoura Hills -- just a 9 minute drive away from Borderline.

The owners say The Canyon Club "graciously allowed us to set up shop and take over Thursday." The first country night is slated for December 20 with doors opening at 6 PM, dance lessons at 6:30 PM ... then line dancing, drinks and food until closing.

As we first reported ... Borderline plans to open again, but the owners don't have a timetable yet.

It's been closed since an ex-Marine stormed the bar last month and opened fire on tons of college students attending Country Night. Tamera Mowry's niece and a Ventura County Sheriff's sergeant were among the victims.

Responding cops eventually found the gunman dead by apparent suicide.

'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee Oops, I'm Going Back to Jail!!! One Month & Counting

12/6/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Just when Tommie Lee thought she was about to be released from custody, she was hauled right back into the pokey ... TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Tommie was set to be released from Georgia's Cobb County Jail with an ankle monitor on Nov. 7, but the "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star got rearrested the same day for violating probation in her DUI case.

The violation was the result of getting arrested TWICE within 24 hours for allegedly stalking her daughter and slamming the child into a school locker back in October.

If you're wondering why you haven't seen Tommie out on the scene ... we're told she's been cooling her heels in jail in Fulton County -- where she got the DUI -- for 28 days now.

We're told she'll get a 2nd shot at release later this month.

Reuben Foster 49ers Tried to Discredit Me During Dom. Violence Incident

12/6/2018 6:10 AM PST
Breaking News

The woman who claims she was attacked by NFL star Reuben Foster says reps from the 49ers tried to undermine her credibility with police during the investigation ... telling cops she had lied about domestic violence in the past. 

Elissa Ennis appeared on "Good Morning America" Thursday where she accused Foster of roughing her up on 3 separate occasions ... including the Nov. 24 incident at a team hotel in Tampa, Florida. 

As we previously reported, Ennis called 911 and told the operator Foster had slapped her and roughed her up during a dispute. He's since been charged with 1 count of misdemeanor domestic violence. She revealed the injury photos during the interview with 'GMA.'

Ennis told 'GMA' they had been arguing because she threatened to tell his new girlfriend that he paid for her flight out to Florida to see him. 

"Even when I called the police, the 49ers came up there," Ennis said ... "I have pictures of the 49ers coming up there trying to talk to the police telling them I'm the same ex-girlfriend that set up there and lied."

The 49ers have not commented on Ennis' claims. 

She's referring to the previous domestic violence allegations she made against Foster back in February -- when she told officials Foster beat the daylights out of her in their California home ... but later recanted her story and told a judge she made the whole thing up. 

Now, Ennis admits she lied in court to protect Foster -- saying, "I did what I had to do for the person I love. I thought that he would change, anybody in my position would do the same thing."

Foster was cut by the 49ers -- but later picked up by the Washington Redskins and Ennis claims she was "shocked" another NFL team would take a chance on such a bad guy. 

Ennis says she's now getting help and realizes her relationship with Foster was destructive and "not love."

Ice Cube Hopes Lamar Odom Joins BIG3 ... 'He's Still Gotta Try Out'

12/6/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ice Cube is jacked up for Lamar Odom's dreams of a pro basketball comeback ... but he says there is a catch if the ex-Laker wants to make it in the BIG3 ...

"He's still gotta try out like everybody else."

Yup ... Ice Cube ain't doing the 2-time NBA champ any favors -- telling TMZ Sports, L.O.'s gotta work out just like the rest of the ballers who want in on his 3-on-3 league.

But ... Cube tells us video he saw recently of Odom on the court and in the gym was promising -- and he's hopeful Lamar can make a squad.

That said, Cube notes that Odom was training in a gym without elite players trying to shut him down -- and the game is A LOT different when there's a defense on the court. 

Cube's advice on the next steps Odom needs to take to make it? "Get healthy, get in shape and get to the combine!"

Seems Lamar's already on it ...
