LARSA PIPPEN Snuggles with Marcus Jordan ... Looking Real Couple-ish!!!

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
TMZ.com

Larsa Pippen looks like she's super into the son of her ex-husband's famous teammate -- the 'Real Housewives' star and Marcus Jordan were all over each other at a music festival.

Larsa and Marcus were spotted together again Sunday ... this time at Rolling Loud in NYC, and video shows them dancing on each other, getting handsy and snuggling.

TMZ obtained this footage of Scottie Pippen's ex with Michael Jordan's son at Citi Field in Queens, and they certainly look like a couple now ... they're clearly more comfortable with one another since we first saw them hanging out in Miami.

Larsa and Marcus are face-to-face, slow dancing and grinding ... with Larsa nuzzling Marcus' neck and even appearing to kiss him.

At one point, Larsa grabs Marcus by the waist and she later turns around and leans back on him ... and Marcus leans in close and appears to whisper in her ear.

Folks who were there tell us Larsa and Marcus were dancing together all night, hugging and kissing and engaging in a bunch of PDA. We're told Larsa was kissing Marcus' neck, laying her head on his chest and trying to make it clear to all they were there together.

It's interesting to see Larsa and Marcus spending more time together ... as we first told you, they hung out in Miami earlier this month, but both of their camps quickly put to bed rumors of a relationship.

JUST A FRIEND

The new video doesn't lie though ... and it's gonna be hard to deny the sparks are flying.

Ya gotta wonder how Michael and Scottie feel about all this -- the 'Last Dance' documentary made it clear there's still some hard feelings between the Hall of Fame Chicago Bulls teammates.

Looks like the 'Jordan Rules' are still in effect ... just for Marcus now.

'Riverdale' Actor Ryan Grantham Afraid He'll Be Brutalized in Prison

The "Riverdale" actor convicted for murdering his mom could end up behind bars with the worst of the worst -- something he and his attorney find gravely concerning, considering he's a puny guy.

Ryan Grantham -- who was sentenced to life in prison in Canada -- is at risk of being brutalized, or worse, if he's forced to serve his time in a maximum security facility ... according to his lawyer, Chris Johnson.

Johnson tells TMZ that Grantham is small in stature and slight in build -- standing a mere 5'2" and weighing about 100 lbs. While the guy is 24, we're told he passes for a teenager ... and looks exactly like the frail characters he's played in movies and on TV.

Johnson is concerned his client could be "physically, psychologically and sexually intimidated" if he's locked up in a max security prison. Basically, he feels Grantham doesn't belong there, not just because of his physicality ... but because, in his mind, the setting for the punishment doesn't fit this specific crime under these particular circumstances.

Johnson tells us his age, size and mental state during this saga should be considered by prison officials -- suggesting even if the crime fits the bill for someone to be thrown in a maximum security prison ... anyone with eyes can see he simply wouldn't fare well.

We're even told the judge who presided over the murder case actually recognized the potential concerns if Grantham ended up in a max security prison, and even recommended a medium security facility.

Thing is, Johnson says the judge has no final say about where he's sent ... it's up to correctional authorities.

Johnson says Grantham has conveyed general apprehension about prison, but his lawyer is still looking out for him and asking the Deputy Commissioner of Prisons to put his client in a medium-security prison. In the interim, we're told Grantham is being held at a pretrial center, and will probably be there another week.

David Bowie Iconic Spacesuit Up for Grabs ... Part of $1.7M Auction!!!

An out-of-this-world fit David Bowie rocked in a classic music vid is going up for auction ... alongside other unique props and costumes that are sewn into the fabric of music history.

A massive music memorabilia auction is set to go down in a couple of months, held by Propstore Auction ... and one of the major Tom highlights, if you will, is Bowie's spacesuit from his 1980 video for "Ashes to Ashes."

The ultra-rare suit is estimated to make up to $92K during the auction, but that number looks awfully small compared to the $1.7 million the entire auction is expected to earn.

Also going up on the block ... a custom silver sparkle Gibson Les Paul Florentine guitar used by Oasis' Noel Gallagher -- a sleek instrument that could go for $578K.

In the perfect timing department, Propstore will offer a Rihanna-worn top from her 2016 "Work" music video. TMZ just broke the story ... RiRi will be headlining the Super Bowl Halftime show in February.

And, for the army of Spice Girls fans, there will be a pair of signed boots Mel B wore during a tour.

Propstore is kicking off the auction in November ... anyone interested in grabbing these goodies can place their bets online, in-person, or over the phone. Good luck!!!

Lamar Odom Showin' Support At Daughter's First Fashion Show ... I'm Your #1 Fan!!!

PROUD PAPA
Tom Feske

There's no doubt Lamar Odom is his daughter's biggest fan ... because he pulled up to her first-ever fashion show to support her in a big way.

Lamar was at 24-year-old Destiny's show at MainRo in Hollywood Saturday -- cheering her on from the audience.

We're told Destiny opened the event -- which was a BIG deal for the model, especially with it being her first time. Goes without saying, Lamar is extremely proud of his daughter.

The show was called "Couture Fighting Cancer 2nd Annual Fashion Show" ... a night that benefits cancer survivors.

Destiny made the move this month from NYC to Los Angeles to live with Lamar and pursue her modeling career. Destiny is the daughter he shares with his ex, Liza Morales.

BTW -- this comes on the heels of many speculating Lamar's been romantically involved with transgender model/actress Daniiellè Alexis ... something he's denied.

Congrats, Destiny!!!

'Concussion' Doc Bennet Omalu Slams Tua For Returning To Game ... 'Your Life Is Worth More Than $10 Billion!!!'

CHECK YOUR PRIORITIES
TMZSports.com

Tua Tagovailoa was foolish for returning to the Bills game on Sunday after slamming his head on the turf ... so says famed neuropathologist Bennet Omalu -- who tells TMZ Sports the Dolphins quarterback put his life at risk by making the comeback.

Dr. Omalu -- who's the real-life inspiration for the famous Will Smith "Concussion" movie -- says that under no circumstances should Tagovailoa have come back into the contest in Miami after he was initially knocked out of it.

Omalu says he suspects Tagovailoa suffered a concussion based on everything he saw on the game's broadcast ... and he said the 24-year-old should have protected himself and his future and stayed on the sideline the rest of the day.

"Your life should be worth more to you than any amount of money," Omalu said. "Your life is worth more than $10 billion, 'cause you can't replace your life. You have only one life."

But Omalu, who discovered CTE, isn't faulting the NFL or the Dolphins one bit for allowing Tagovailoa back under center.

"The duty falls on the players," he said. "The NFL did not point a gun on his head and say, 'You must go back to play.' He could have said, 'No.'"

For Tagovailoa's part, he insisted he did not suffer a head injury during the play ... but rather, he said he hurt his back.

"I got up, and that's kind of why I stumbled," the signal-caller told reporters after Miami secured the 21-19 win over Buffalo. "My back kind of locked up on me. But for the most part, I'm good. Passed whatever concussion protocol they had."

The NFL Players Association has launched an investigation into the handling of the incident.

Guess Who This Lil' Goofball Turned Into!

Before this comical kid was singing around the globe, stringin' up originals on his guitar and posting thirst traps left and right on social media, he was just your average teen playing soccer and hockey while growing up in Ontario, Canada.

This cute kid may have worn tighty-whities back in the day, but now he's always rockin' a pair of Calvins. He first popped up on the scene after posting a cover of Justin Bieber's "As Long As You Love Me" on Vine .... who knew that he would "Wonder" off to collaborate with the Biebs in 2020?!

Can you guess who he is?

NASA's DART Mission Spacecraft Smacks Into Asteroid ... In Planetary Defense Test

EARTH DEFENSE FORCE
NASA

Asteroids, you have a problem ... humans!!!

NASA just successfully tested a new way to defend Earth from potentially dangerous asteroids ... by crashing a spacecraft into a floating space rock.

The space agency carried out its $325 million DART mission Monday in the final frontier, with a space probe purposefully colliding with an asteroid to send it in a different direction.

The mission was broadcast live across the globe, there were cameras on the front of the probe as it crashed into the asteroid, and mission control went bonkers when the probe successfully made impact, redirecting the asteroid.

NASA's DART probe -- an acronym for Double Asteroid Redirection Test -- is being tested to see just how much a spacecraft can alter an asteroid's trajectory simply by crashing into the darn thing. Only humans could dream this up.

The test of the futuristic planetary defense technology was carried out on a harmless asteroid, Dimorphos, some 6.8 million miles from Earth.

Meanwhile, at mission control, Bill Nye was watching in real-time.

Asteroids have officially been warned ... don't mess with Earth!!!

Myles Garrett Single-Car Crash After Practice ... Video Shows Mangled Porsche

UPDATE

2:54 PM PT -- TMZ Sports has obtained video showing the aftermath of the crash -- and you can see Garrett's car was left a mangled mess after it came to a stop in a ditch on the side of the road.

BEAT UP PORSCHE

UPDATE

One witness who actually helped Garrett and his passenger get out of the car following the accident tell us Garrett complained of wrist pain. The witness says the football player also appeared to be bleeding from both his ankle and chest areas.

Cleveland Browns superstar defensive end Myles Garrett's Porsche flipped several times during a single-car wreck after practice on Monday ... but luckily, he escaped with only minor injuries.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol shared the news just minutes ago ... saying 26-year-old Garrett and a passenger were transported to a nearby hospital after getting into the accident.

Cops say alcohol or other drugs did not play a factor ... and both passengers were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

WKYC in Cleveland obtained pictures of the crash ... showing Garrett's Porsche in banged-up shape.

Judging by the wheels, the car appears to be a 911 Turbo S ... which starts around $215K. The 911 Turbo S has over 600 horsepower, does 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and has a top speed over 200 MPH.

It's unclear if weather contributed to the accident, but it was raining in Berea, Ohio on Monday ... which is where the Browns' practice facility is located.

Garrett and the Browns are coming off a big win over the rival Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday ... and he had 2 total tackles in the 29-17 matchup.

Garrett -- the #1 overall pick in the 2017 Draft out of Texas A&M -- is one of the best players in the NFL with 61.5 career sacks and 201 total tackles over 6 seasons.

We've reached out to law enforcement for more details.

The Browns travel to Atlanta to play the Falcons on Sunday ... although it's unclear if Garrett will be able to suit up.

Tom Daley Hubby Suffered Serious Head Injury ... Recovering In Greece

Olympic gold medalist diver Tom Daley's screenwriter husband, Dustin Lance Black, says he's on the mend from a serious head injury that had doctors telling him to "shut off his brain" in order to recover.

Dustin, famous for writing the 2008 movie "Milk," shared the health update Monday on social media, telling folks it's been a month since he "sustained a serious head injury that put me out of commission."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

DLB says he initially wasn't showing much improvement and "doctors ordered me to shut off my brain in hopes of it healing." He says Tom took him to the Greek islands this week to make him shut off his mind.

Dustin posted a ton of photos of him and Tom in Greece ... and he says the trip is a step in the right direction to what "has been a challenging, frightening time for a creative type who depends on what's in his skull to work, care and love."

While Dustin does not elaborate on how he suffered a brain injury ... he was reportedly punched in the head last month during an altercation with Teddy Edwardes at a London gay bar.

Dustin says his road to recovery will be "long" ... but he sounds optimistic about what's ahead.

Hunt Gone Wrong MT Woman Kills, Skins Husky Dog ... Thought It Was a Wolf?!?

A Montana woman is in hot water after she proudly displayed the carcass of a dog she killed, and then skinned ... thinking it was a baby wolf, and the public is irate.

Her name is Amber Rose (no relation to the famous one) and she announced her kill recently on Facebook, posting a series of very graphic photos where she showed off the dead pooch -- before and after it was reduced to a fur rug in the bed of her pickup truck.

She wrote, "So this morning I set out for a solo predator hunt for a fall black bear however I got the opportunity to take another predator wolf pup 2022 was a great feeling to text my man and say I just smoked a wolf pup. #firstwolf #onelesspredatorMT."

The horrifying kill went down somewhere in Montana's Flathead County, and the local Sheriff's Office, Animal Control and Fish and Game agencies all tell us they're aware of it ... and have launched investigations that are ongoing.

There's no word yet on what, if any, legal/criminal repercussions Rose might face ... but it's clear folks in the area are already up in arms and want her to pay. Several Facebook users say they've filed complaints demanding she be held accountable. The general consensus is how could she not know this was someone's Siberian husky, and NOT a wolf???

Rose is defending herself amid all the backlash ... insisting she was in the right here.

Rose took to FB to tell everyone she did, in fact, have a wolf tag -- licensing her to hunt the animal -- while also explaining ... yes, she made a mistake. Despite that admission, she says she'd do it all over again, because she claims the husky was acting wild, aggressive and charging her. From her POV, she had every right to protect herself -- wolf or not -- so she didn't break any laws.

Still, many who are doing comparisons between huskies and wolves note the latter tend to be much larger, and have a different look than your average husky.

At this point, it remains to be seen who, if anyone, owned the husky ... which appears to have been one of more than a dozen abandoned in a wooded area.

Elon vs. Twitter Deposition Delays Elon Wants Twitter CEO Punished

Elon Musk's legal team was all set to grill Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal Monday -- but it never happened, and now EM's team is considering filing action to hold Agrawal in contempt.

Sources with direct knowledge of the case tell TMZ ... Elon's attorneys flew out to the west coast Monday to conduct Agrawal's deposition in Twitter's lawsuit against Elon for backing out of his purchase of the company. Sources close to Elon say Parag unexpectedly no-showed, but folks at Twitter say that's BS.

Our Twitter sources say both sides agreed on Sunday that Monday's deposition would be rescheduled for personal reasons, and will, instead, happen later this week.

INVESTIGATING THE SECRETS
TMZ.com

Now, our Elon sources say his legal team might ask the judge to hold Parag in contempt for missing the depo ... which, if successful, could mean consequences even before the trial, which is set to begin Oct. 17.

Other reports suggested Elon was also supposed to sit for a depo Monday in Delaware, but Elon's attorney, Alex Spiro, tells TMZ, "It's a lie." He also insists the Parag's depo was still scheduled to go down Monday in San Francisco.

Remember, this is all about Twitter trying to force Elon to buy the company like he said he would ... only to then reverse course when he claimed Twitter wasn't being forthright about spambot data and security-related problems with the platform.

Elon says the lack of transparency gives him a right to back out of the deal, but Twitter wants to hold him to it. Despite rumblings of a settlement, it looks like this thing's going to trial.

Khloe Kardashian Not Dating Michele Morrone ... Just Posed For D&G Photo

Khloe Kardashian is not romantically involved with Italian heartthrob Michele Morrone ... despite her fans' reaction to a photo of them together at Milan Fashion Week.

A rep for the '365 Days' star tells TMZ Khloe and Michele met for the first time when they were both in attendance this weekend at Kim Kardashian's fashion show with Dolce & Gabbana.

The internet went crazy when Michele posted a photo of him and Khloe over the weekend on his Instagram story with tons of fan theories about a possible romance based on Michele ... but Michele's rep says D&G asked him and Khloe to take a picture together, and they obliged.

We're told Michele thought Khloe was very nice, but that's the extent of their relationship.

Bottom line ... Michele is very much living the single life over in Milan.

Lil Wayne got an early start to his 40th birthday celebration ... with a star-studded birthday party fit for the legendary rapper!!!

Sources close to Weezy tell TMZ Hip Hop ... the shindig went down at popular L.A. hot spot, The Nice Guy -- and several close friends and family members -- including all 4 of his children, flew in from New Orleans for the event.

Special guests ranged from YG and Yella Beezy to Mack Maine and Cortez Bryant on the hip hop side ... and Skip Bayless, Shannon Sharpe and Marcus Wiley repped for the sports culture.

NBA YoungBoy understandably couldn't be there on an account of his highly publicized house arrest, but sent a video message addressing Wayne as "his son" ... as they're both branches from the Louisiana rap family tree.

The biggest shocker of the night came courtesy of R&B legend Keith Sweat ... who surprised Wayne with a special performance of his classic track "Don't Stop Your Love."

Wayne's actual birthday is Tuesday, when he'll be getting the royal birthday treatment from the National Museum of African American Music in Nashville. We've learned they're unveiling a special exhibit in his honor.

Bills Vs. Dolphins Josh Allen Fan Kicked In Face ... In Wild Brawl Outside Stadium

A Josh Allen fan was roughed up badly outside of the Bills vs. Dolphins game on Sunday -- taking a foot straight to the face ... before he was kicked and punched repeatedly.

The incident all went down at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami at some point in the midst of Buffalo's 21-19 loss to the 'Fins.

It's unclear what started the melee -- but footage from the scene shows a couple Dolphins fans got into it with two Bills fans ... and the Buffalo tandem got the worst of it by far.

You can see in the footage, both Bills fans were thrown to the ground ... and while the man in the Allen jersey was trying to get up, he got kicked in the teeth. The other Buffalo fan was jumped on as well.

Another person in an Allen jersey attempted to break things up -- but as the Buffalo fan was down -- a man in a Tua Tagovailoa jersey punched him in the head. Another shirtless guy jumped in and kicked him multiple times as well.

No word on how the situation got resolved or if there were any serious injuries -- we've reached out to cops, but so far, we haven't heard back yet.

Shakira, Gerard Piqué Sittin' Separate At Son's Baseball Game

Shakira and Gerard Piqué are still practicing social distancing, at least when it comes to co-parenting -- they both showed up to their kid's baseball game, but sat pretty far away from each other.

The exes were out supporting their 9-year-old son, Milan, Saturday in Barcelona ... Gerard was with his mom on one side of the stands, while Shakira came with some of her pals and her mom, sitting on the other side.

The singer even spent some alone time in the dugout, too.

We're told they didn't look at each other the entire game ... it wasn't until their son was saying his goodbyes after the game that they got close.

The icy environment definitely gives "unresolved issues" vibes ... and Shakira's Off-White "keep back" jacket certainly backed that up. She broke her silence on their split last week -- telling Elle she kept quiet on purpose ever since rumors started swirling in June, partially to protect her kids.

Shakira admits she's "still going through it" ... adding it's been a tough experience not only for her, but for her children, too.
