John Legend Hoppy Easter ... Goes Full Bunny Mode!!!

4/21/2019 3:26 PM PDT

Kanye West isn't the only guy putting on an Easter Sunday show ... and John Legend's giving him a run for his money.

Chrissy Teigen just shared some very amusing videos of her husband getting in an Easter Bunny costume ... then hopping and running around in the yard.

John's presumably doing it to surprise their children, Luna and Miles, but Chrissy's clearly enjoying the bunny shenanigans too.

Several other celebs are in the Easter spirit Sunday, too. Gabrielle Union posted a vid of Dwyane Wade dancing with their girl, Kaavia James, for a special daddy-daughter Easter dance.

Other stars to bust out the pastel clothes and pose for family Easter pics include Jessica Simpson, JWoww, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, Fergie, Jessie James Decker and more.

As we reported ... the other major Easter performance went down in the California desert, as Kanye held a Sunday Service featuring a choir, orchestra and several guest stars.

Didn't see anyone in a bunny costume, though.

Kanye West Sunday Service from Coachella ... Spiritual, Emotional & Quite a Show!!!

4/21/2019 12:08 PM PDT

11:50 AM PT -- Kanye's Service has wrapped up ... after an upbeat and emotional couple hours with a lot of help from his friends.

The final hour featured DMX giving a prayer, Chance the Rapper performing "Ultralight Beam" and a huge rendition of "Jesus Walks." At one point it looked like several members of the choir, including Kanye, were moved to tears.

Kylie and Travis were apparently feeling it too ... and were moved to a little PDA. Happy Easter, everybody!

11:05 AM PT -- Though the Service kicked off at 9 AM, Kanye wasn't revealed on Coachella's fisheye lens stream 'til about 9:50, and he didn't get on the mic for another hour after that ... when he performed "All Falls Down." He followed it up by premiering his new song, "Water," with Ty Dolla $ign

He's also rocking purple hair. 

Not that Ye hasn't been busy the whole time -- he's been dancing, playing piano and directing the choir ... while tens of thousands of festival attendees gather around. The show is still going too.

Other highlights so far include the choir and band performing "Beautiful Morning," "Power," "Blood on the Leaves" and Stevie Wonder's "As." Teyana Taylor and Chance the Rapper also performed, and celebs spotted in the crowd include Kim, KhloeKendallKylie and Travis Scott, and La La Anthony.Kanye West is ready to preach his version of the gospel for all the folks at Coachella ... and TMZ will be streaming live when it begins at around 9 AM PT.

Ye will host his Sunday Service, which has become a thing in L.A., attracting lots of celebs. It's more music than preaching, which may be a reason why some not-so-religious people have become believers. Kim Kardashian West was getting the family ready to attend bright and early.

A brand new stage was set up in the campground for Ye, and everyone with a wristband is welcome. Event producers are expecting upwards of 100,000 people. Take that, Joel Osteen.

The Sunday Service will feature a massive choir, orchestra and, we're told, other surprises. In weeks past he's performed both gospel songs as well as some of his hit songs.

During a recent service ... Kanye paid homage to Nipsey Hussle by playing audio of Nipsey delivering inspirational thoughts. It was one hell of a show.

Magic Johnson It's Like I Never Left the Lakers ... I Love This Team, and LeBron!!!

4/21/2019 12:41 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Magic Johnson has no regrets over how he resigned from the Los Angeles Lakers because he says he's still doing what he's always done ... trying to help them win.

The Lakers icon and former team president was out in Beverly Hills Saturday afternoon when we asked if he would have done anything differently now that he's had time to mull it over ... he says no way.

As you'll recall ... Magic took some heat for blindsiding everyone with his announcement -- including owner Jeanie Buss -- citing the fact he wasn't having fun running the team as his reason.

Seems like he's in good spirits now, and he tells TMZ Sports it's because he's still heavily involved with the Lakers ... basically like he's still got the job. He even says he still talks to Buss daily about team business.

Magic also says his Lakers love is unquestioned and will never waiver ... and the same goes for LeBron James. Check it out -- Magic still has a master plan for getting L.A. back to championship form with James, too.

So ... is there a way to rescind a resignation?

Robert Mueller Spotted Leaving Easter Service ... No Eggs Revealed About Report

4/21/2019 10:44 AM PDT

Robert Mueller seems like he's said all he's going to say about his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election for now ... if you want more, there's 448 pages in his report to dig through.

We got the Special Counsel leaving St. John's Episcopal Church Sunday morning in D.C. -- right across the street from the White House -- after attending an Easter service with his wife.

Bob was tight-lipped as he got in his car to leave ... not even telling us if he's planning to take a vacation now that the Mueller Report's been released.

Another reporter was on the scene too ... but didn't appear to have any luck either.

As you know, reaction to the report has been a mixed bag -- many believe President Trump should be impeached over details in the report, while the Prez declared total victory ... using "Game of Thrones" as inspiration.

Regardless, people aren't going to forget about Mueller anytime soon ... though he looks like he wishes they would.

Soulja, Fogle, Cosby & Suge Easter Dinner Prison Meals ... No Chocolate Bunny Zone!!!

4/21/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Soulja Boy and Bill Cosby are spending their first Easter Sunday behind bars, and they're about to find out what Suge Knight and Jared Fogle already know -- holiday dinners ain't all that special behind bars. 

TMZ's obtained prison menus from across the country, and locked-up celebs are chowing down on some seriously depressing Easter feasts ... if you can call it that. Here's a breakdown of their options. 

Soulja Boy at Los Angeles County Jail: 

- Spaghetti, salad, bread and juice 

Soulja's got terrible timing, he's in custody until April 30 after last week's arrest for a probation violation.

Cosby at Pennsylvania's SCI Phoenix: 

- Baked chicken, bread dressing, carrots, gravy, bread and margarine, fresh apple 

Cosby's serving 3 to 10 years for sexual assault. 

Suge at San Diego's Richard J Donovan Correctional Facility: 

- Hamburger, baked potato wedges, steamed corn, coleslaw, ice cream 

Suge struck a plea deal in his murder case back in September and is serving a 28-year sentence. Remember, he's been behind bars since 2015 ... so, he knows the deal by now. No Easter baskets.

Jared at Colorado's FCI Englewood:

- Beef or soy tacos, Mexican or steamed rice, black beans, corn, shredded cheese and salsa

Let's be real -- anything's too good for the child pornographer who's doing at least 15 years.

Just a suggestion from the peanut gallery for next Easter -- we'd force 'em all to eat Peeps.

Kodak Black Border Bust Could Trigger Bond Revocation ... In Sexual Misconduct Case

4/21/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kodak Black's bust at the Canada-U.S. border could have HUGE ramifications ... in South Carolina.

Sources in the Florence County Solicitor’s Office tell TMZ ... prosecutors in the Palmetto State have the rapper's drugs and gun bust on their radar and are currently reviewing the case to determine if he violated bond conditions in his sexual misconduct case.

We're told if it's determined Kodak violated the terms, prosecutors would hold a hearing where they'll ask a judge to revoke his bond. Last we checked, prosecutors have yet to do that.

As we reported ... Kodak was indicted in April 2017 after he was accused of sexually assaulting a teenager at a hotel in South Carolina. He's been out on $100k bond ever since.

Fast forward to earlier this week ... cops found a Glock 9mm pistol and weed in the Cadillac Escalade the rapper was driving after he tried crossing back on U.S. soil at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge.

As we told you ... Kodak blamed his damn GPS for making him drive into Canada. He posted a $20k cash bond and hid behind a wad of cash as he left jail.

We reached out to Kodak Black’s attorney, Beattie Ashmore, to ask about possible bond revocation following the latest bust ... but he had no comment.

Idris Elba DJ's at Coachella Week 2 This Is How It's Done!!!

4/21/2019 7:10 AM PDT

Idris Elba has settled into his new role as a DJ, looking relaxed and confident as he played to a packed house Saturday night at Coachella, Week 2.

The crowd crammed into the Yuma tent as they watched Idris prepare to start his set. It's fun to watch him fire up, talking to the crowd and futzing with his equipment.

Everyone loved it ... it's turned out to be a highlight of the festival, which has come under fire for going way too pop this year.  

Kanye will probably steal the show a little later Sunday morning with his Sunday Service ... TMZ will live stream the Easter festivities beginning at 8:30 AM PT. 

Donald Sterling Weighs In On Clippers ... And Magic Johnson

4/21/2019 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

It's been 5 years since the NBA forced Donald Sterling to sell the L.A. Clippers -- but the billionaire tells TMZ Sports he's STILL a fan of his former team and rooting for them in the playoffs.

Remember, Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life on April 29, 2014 over racist comments recorded by V. Stiviano and published on TMZ.  

The league forced Sterling to sell the team -- which he did a few months later for the whopping price of $2 BILLION. 

Sterling has since moved on with his life -- but when we spotted him in Beverly Hills, we had to know if he's still following the Clippers, and rooting for them in the playoffs. 

 "Of course," the 84-year-old billionaire told us on his way out of Nate'n Al ... "And, I wish them the best!" 

We also asked Sterling how he felt about Magic Johnson stepping down as the President of the Lakers -- and that's when Sterling looked up and gave a devious smirk. 

It's Sterling's previous comments about Magic that led to his own demise -- when he told V. Stiviano he didn't want her bringing black people to Clippers games, including Magic Johnson. 

Weeks after we published the recordings, Sterling went on CNN to attack Magic again -- calling him an unfit role model for children because "he's got AIDS."

Johnson fired back at the time -- saying Sterling was an ignorant old man who's still living in the stone ages.

We reached out to the Clippers to see how the felt about Sterling's support -- but we haven't heard back. 

DJ Quik to Fox News Don't Fire Laura Ingraham for Nipsey Diss ... Feed Her the Bird Instead!!!

4/21/2019 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DJ Quik is proposing an interesting punishment for Fox News' Laura Ingraham after she mocked Nipsey Hussle on-air -- and surprisingly, it doesn't include her losing her job.

We got the Compton MC at Mastro's in Bev Hills and asked what he made of the conservative host laughing at Nipsey's expense on the heels of his memorial at Staples Center. As you probably know ... she lampooned him for partaking in YG's song, "FDT (F*** Donald Trump), which she incorrectly called Nipsey's track.

Lots of people are pissed about Laura's clear insensitivity -- especially considering the man had just been murdered -- while some big names in hip-hop, including T.I. and The Game, are calling for her job.  

Quik isn't going that far, and his reasoning is he considers Laura to be "privileged and ignorant," and while he doesn't say it outright, it sounds like he believes this is par for the course with her -- remember that whole LeBron James debacle.

It's interesting ... he compares Laura's commentary to Megyn Kelly's blackface scandal, which did cost her her gig at NBC.

Unlike Megyn, Quik says Laura's punishment should be feathered and fed cold.

Justin Bieber better learn to love whiskey and potatoes ... 'cause he's Irish!!!

The Biebs ecstatically revealed Saturday he's around 60% Irish ... prompting him to give Ireland a shout-out on his Instagram story. This was in response to his pops, Jeremy, posting on IG showing him holding a bottle of Conor McGregor's Proper Twelve Irish whiskey.
