'90 Day Fiance' Star Larissa Hit With Domestic Violence Charge For Alleged Attack on Hubby

1/18/2019 3:46 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"90 Day Fiance" star Larissa Dos Santos Lima has been hit with a domestic violence charge after allegedly attacking her husband last week.

The charge is a misdemeanor and was filed Wednesday in Vegas. The criminal complaint -- obtained by TMZ -- states Larissa, "Did willfully and unlawfully use force or violence against or upon the person of her spouse."

TMZ broke the story ... Larissa was arrested last Friday after she allegedly punched her estranged husband, Colt Johnson, in the face. Colt suffered a bloody lip as a result of the attack. 

Johnson told cops Larissa became enraged -- accusing him of cheating -- after she discovered he had purchased porn. According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- Colt said Larissa had downed half a bottle of antidepressants and was suicidal. 

Larissa claimed Colt was the aggressor, scratching her in the face and on her torso ... but after their investigation, cops determined Larissa was the aggressor. 

 

Jeff Bezos Leaving on a Private Luxury Jet ... First Sighting Since Divorce

1/18/2019 3:24 PM PST

Jeff Bezos has been lying low since news of his divorce broke, but the richest man in the world still has places to be ... and he's still traveling in style.

The Amazon honcho was spotted out for the first time since announcing he's getting divorced from his wife of 25 years, MacKenzie. Jeff looked pretty chill as he boarded a luxury private aircraft in Seattle ... unzipped vest and all.

As we reported ... Jeff announced he and his wife were divorcing after a trial separation didn't work out, and Bezos' relationship with TV host Lauren Sanchez allegedly played a big role in the decision.

Jeff's $137 BILLION is on the line though, because we found out he and MacKenzie don't have a prenup. So, it seems they'll split the incredible fortune right down the middle.

Do the math, and $68.5 billion should still be enough to afford rides on private jets ... but maybe not ones that big.

Killer Mike Kaepernick Protests Aside Super Bowl a Big 'W' for Black People

1/18/2019 2:46 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Killer Mike insists all the controversy over black artists playing the Super Bowl Halftime Show masks the most important point -- which is huge financial opportunities for the black community.

We got the Run the Jewels rapper in NYC, where he's promoting his new Netflix series, "Trigger Warning." We asked Mike about the heat his pal Big Boi and Travis Scott have been taking for joining Maroon 5 ... instead of protesting the NFL in support of Colin Kaepernick.

Mike's heard about the push for the artists to take a knee during the show, and says more power to 'em if they do it. However, he's not coming down on them if they don't.

As an ATL guy himself, Mike says Super Bowl LIII's biggest impact won't be on the field, or on the halftime show stage -- it'll be in the bank accounts of thousands of people getting work because of the event.

He also clued us in on his plans for Super Bowl Sunday -- and they don't involve football. But, there will very likely be a bowl. 

Soulja Boy I'm Hot S**t RN ... Get Ready for My New Album!!!

1/18/2019 1:25 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Soulja Boy loves him some Soulja Boy, and why shouldn't he? He's wanted by multiple record labels, and he's the hottest rapper in the game after having the biggest 2018 comeback ... according to him.

The rapper tells TMZ his old record label, Interscope, desperately wants to sign him back, so he used it as leverage with his current label, eOne, to strike a deal for a new album ... which he says is coming soon. Soulja says it's 12 or 13 tracks ... and it's going to get the year kicked off right.

Soulja's also got a list a mile long to prove he's hip-hop's rising star once again -- including playing a venue he never landed back in the day -- and doubles down on his Tyga bashing.

There's more, though ... because the rapper's still got beef with Drake over allegedly stealing bars from his song in 2006. Oh, and he reminds us he paved the way for Justin Bieber on YouTube.

Breaking News

What's better than a hole-in-one in a round of golf??

A HOLE-IN-ONE IN A ROUND OF GOLF WITH BARACK OBAMA!!!

Larry Fitzgerald knows that first hand ...'cause the Cardinals superstar aced the par-3 13th hole at Seminole Golf Club in Florida on Friday in front of the former President.

Golf Channel's Tim Rosaforte reports Fitz and Obama played a foursome at the prestigious course with club prez Jimmy Dunne and Obama Foundation board member Glenn Hutchins.

The story goes like this ... Obama hit his tee shot first -- striking the green about 20 feet from the hole.

Larry hit his tee shot next ... and with an 8-iron from 162 yards out -- HE JARRED IT!!!

Per Rosaforte ... Larry was JACKED, screaming, "I’m playing with the President of the United States and I just made a hole in one! This is unbelievable!”

Larry is no stranger to success on the links ... dude's a reported 10 handicap and has hit the course with guys like Tiger Woods in the past.

But ... bad news for Larry -- the ace means drinks are on him!!!

Something tells us that's a bill he won't mind footing, though.

Ben Shapiro Here's How Pro-Lifers Would Deal with Baby Hitler

1/18/2019 11:06 AM PST

Conservative talk show host Ben Shapiro's got some interesting thoughts on baby Hitler.

Ben's at March for Life in D.C. Friday -- joining the annual rally of pro-life folks who oppose the practice and legality of abortion -- and he dropped his take on the age-old question -- If you could go back in time and kill Hitler as a baby, would you do it?

Shapiro says it's actually a no-brainer for anyone who's truly pro-life ... because the key word here is "baby."

Ya gotta check out Ben's explanation of the hypothetical situation but, if he had his way as a pro-life time traveler ... perhaps the name Hitler nowadays wouldn't be such a bad thing.

R. Kelly Dropped by Sony

1/18/2019 10:34 AM PST
Breaking News

R. Kelly's not in business with Sony Music for the first time in decades after the singer and the record company agreed to part ways ... TMZ has confirmed.

Sources close to Kelly tell us both sides agreed on a split this week. The end of their relationship comes amid the storm of controversy after the docuseries, "Surviving R. Kelly."

R. Kelly's been with Sony since the early days of his career, and has been under contract with its subsidiary label, RCA, since 2012.

As you know ... the singer's facing mounting allegations of sexual abuse and predatory behavior after the Lifetime doc's in-depth interviews with his alleged victims and their families.

Several artists -- like Celine Dion, Lady Gaga and Ciara -- have separated themselves from Kelly by pulling their collabs with him from streaming services ... while others have denounced him.

Sony was also feeling the pressure with protests outside its offices in L.A. and NYC.

Gladys Knight Praying SB Nat'l Anthem Unites America

1/18/2019 9:37 AM PST
Breaking News

Gladys Knight is adamant she does NOT have a problem with Colin Kaepernick and his protest -- but says she's hoping her national anthem performance at the Super Bowl can unite the country,. 

"I understand that Mr. Kaepernick is protesting two things and they are police violence and injustice," the 74-year-old said in a statement.

"It is unfortunate that our National Anthem has been dragged into this debate when the distinctive senses of the National Anthem and fighting for justice should each stand alone."

Of course, Knight is referencing Colin's decision to take a knee during the 'Star-Spangled Banner' during NFL games. Kap had said the demonstration is intended to put a spotlight on police violence against minorities. 

Knight continued in her statement ... 

"I am here today and on Sunday, Feb. 3 to give the Anthem back its voice, to stand for that historic choice of words, the way it unites us when we hear it and to free it from the same prejudices and struggles I have fought long and hard for all my life, from walking back hallways, from marching with our social leaders, from using my voice for good."

"I have been in the forefront of this battle longer than most of those voicing their opinions to win the right to sing our country’s Anthem on a stage as large as the Super Bowl LIII." 

"No matter who chooses to deflect with this narrative and continue to mix these two in the same message, it is not so and cannot be made so by anyone speaking it."

"I pray that this National Anthem will bring us all together in a way never before witnessed and we can move forward and untangle these truths which mean so much to all of us."

Kaepernick -- along with his girlfriend, close friends and celebrities -- have been critical of musicians who have agreed to perform at the Super Bowl. Rap star Common has even called for Travis Scott to pull out of the halftime show. 

As for Colin's thoughts on Gladys -- so far, he has not issued a comment.

Prince Philip Contacts Accident Victims ... Gets New SUV Delivery

1/18/2019 10:05 AM PST

10:05 AM PT -- Prince Phillip went to a hospital on Friday to get an additional check-up, on a doctor's advice ... according to the Palace. They described it as a "precautionary" visit, and say it confirmed he suffered no injuries whatsoever. Miraculous.

Also, we're told the Prince reached out to the 2 women who were injured in the other vehicle, and "well wishes" were exchanged.

So British.Queen Elizabeth's husband, Prince Philip, is STILL hell-bent on driving himself because he already has a brand new SUV ... less than 24 hours after flipping his last Land Rover.

The Duke of Edinburgh got his new ride delivered Friday to the Royal family's Sandringham Estate. Looks like he got the same model -- a Land Rover Freelander -- as the one he wrecked a day earlier, not far from Sandringham. 

Philip was behind the wheel Thursday when he collided with a Kia, flipping his Land Rover on its side.

The other car had a 9-month-old inside, but fortunately the baby was unharmed. The driver and her passenger suffered some cuts and a broken wrist.

The shocker, of course, is that 97-YEAR-OLD Philip somehow walked away uninjured. 

With the new delivery, it seems like Prince William's and Prince Harry's granddad isn't ready to give up his keys just yet. However, one of Philip's friends told People the Prince would stop driving, reluctantly, if he's advised to do so. 

Drive at your own risk, U.K. residents.

1/18/2019 10:11 AM PST

R. Lee Ermey, the former Marine who rose to fame by playing the sadistic Gunnery Sgt. Hartman in "Full Metal Jacket," was laid to rest Friday at Arlington National Cemetery. 

A former Marine drill instructor turned successful actor, Ermey, had his cremated remains buried with full military honors. There was a casket team, firing party and bugler, plus a folding and presentation of the American flag.

Ermey's military honor comes 9 months after his death last April from pneumonia. He was 74.

The actor enlisted in the Marine Corp when he was 17 years old, and he served in Okinawa and in Vietnam. 

Ermey gained worldwide fame following his role in Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" in 1987, delivering his famous line, "What is your major malfunction?!" Ermey said he used his experience as a drill instructor to bring his character to life.

Ermey appeared in dozens of films, though in his later years he said he had been blackballed from Hollywood because of his political views.

Chris Pratt My Fiancee's the Greatest ... Katherine Braves LAX!!!

1/18/2019 8:52 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger will be together forever -- it's an absolute lock, and we know this because she did something for him early Friday morning ... that almost NO one in L.A. does.

Ya probably wouldn't believe this if we didn't get it on video, but here it is -- Katherine behind the wheel at 7 AM, driving her fiance and dropping him off at LAX!! If you live in L.A., or even if you've flown here, you know the airport is an absolute nightmare.

Kat stayed in the car as we congratulated Chris on their engagement, and chatted about a possible best man for their wedding. You gotta see him, because the smile on Chris' face screams one thing: My girl will do ANYTHING for me.

We got even more proof they're rock solid on Thursday night ... as the couple did dinner with Katherine's mom and brother -- Maria Shriver and Chris Schwarzenegger -- and Pratt's son, Jack

The goodbye scene outside the Smoke House Restaurant in Burbank was straight out of a Hallmark card. Jack had big hugs for Katherine's bro and also for Nana Maria.

Super sweet ... but still pales in comparison to the scene at LAX.

Chris, you got a real one. And Katherine, thanks for making the rest of us schlubs look bad.
