Serena Williams Shuts Down Megxit Question ... 'Good Try'

Breaking News
NOT TOUCHING THAT
Australian Open TV

Pro tip for all future Serena Williams interviewers ... whatever you do, do NOT ask about her friend Meghan Markle ... 'cause you WILL get shut down.

The tennis superstar faced the media after her Australian Open match on Monday ... and the first question wasn't about her win over Anastasia Potapova, it was about Megxit.

“Your good friend, Meghan Markle, who attended your last 2 slams, and Harry, have taken a move, a stance that many people think is extraordinary and historic," the reporter said.

"What are your feelings about that? Have you spoken to her?”

Backgrid

Kelly Rowland's going full Beyonce ... with her new wardrobe.

The Destiny's Child singer showed some serious love to her BFF Thursday by going out in Brentwood covered head to toe in Bey's new Adidas x Ivy Park activewear collection.

You gotta imagine Bey hooked KR up with the collection for free ... she's been delivering HUGE care packages all week to all her celeb friends -- like Missy Elliott, Reese Witherspoon, Cardi B, Zendaya, Ellen DeGeneres, Janelle Monáe, Hailey Bieber and others -- filled to the brim with pants, socks, shoes, hoodies, jackets and workout gear.

It's practically an entire walk-in closet worth of stuff!

Browns' Jarvis Landry Calls BS On Odell Wanting Out of CLE ... 'Not Trying to Leave'

Breaking News
NOT WHAT HE WANTS
Cleveland Browns

Jarvis Landry says his best friend Odell Beckham is NOT trying to bolt from the Browns, despite reports to the contrary ... telling reporters, "He's not trying to leave."

There are multiple reports claiming Odell told opposing players and coaches to "come get me" out of Cleveland ... essentially letting people know he's unhappy with the Browns and wants to get out.

Of course, Beckham didn't choose to play for Cleveland in the first place -- he was traded there by the Giants earlier this year.

Additionally, Beckham expressed frustrations with the Browns training staff -- suggesting they did not properly handle the sports hernia injury he suffered in training camp.

But, Landy -- who's been super tight with Beckham since high school -- came out strong to reporters today, saying the superstar WR is not trying to jump ship.

"He doesn't want to leave and he's not trying to leave," Landry said moments ago.

"It's not even about trying to go somewhere else," Landry added ... noting that Beckham's been a solid teammate and consummate pro during his run in Cleveland.

For his part, Odell has tweeted about the reports saying, "I NEVER said I was not happy in Cleveland, just like everyone else I’m hopeful for better results. Period. Next story plzz."

So ... still think Odell suits up in a Browns uni next season?

LeBron James Love For Kyler At Lakers Game ... Nothing For Bellinger?!?

Breaking News
MAD RESPECT
NBA

Here's LeBron James going out of his way to show love to NFL star Kyler Murray at the Lakers game on Tuesday ... it's a cool moment.

But, there's another issue with this clip ... did LeBron ignore L.A. Dodgers star Cody Bellinger, who was sitting right next to the QB?!

SAY IT AIN'T SO BRON!!!

Getty

Here's the deal ... King James went over to the expensive seats at Talking Stick Resort Arena with about 25 seconds left in the 4th quarter to dap up Murray, the #1 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

FYI, Murray and LeBron have been friends for a while -- in fact, Kyler has a deal with Bron's Uninterrupted media company ... and rocked the logo inside of his suit jacket on Draft night.

uninterrupted

But, during the broadcast, we DIDN'T see LeBron show love to Cody ... who was sitting right next to Kyler!!!

Look, doesn't mean Bron didn't chop it up with Cody before or after the game (or maybe LBJ just didn't recognize Cody in a backward hat).

Bron definitely SHOULD know Bellinger ... he shouted out the MLB star for wearing his Lakers jersey for a Taco Tuesday-themed Halloween costume this year!

But hey, at least Cody's killin' it off the diamond ... he and his smokin' GF, Sabrina, seem to be happily in love.

Congrats on that!!

GREAT FIGHTER, BETTER FRIEND
TMZSports.com

Colby Covington's support for President Trump has turned into an all-out bromance with POTUS' son ... 'cause Donald Trump Jr. says he considers the UFC star a good friend!!

Of course, the Trump family has been frequenting UFC events lately -- Trump Jr. and Eric were Covington's personal guests to his fight against Robbie Lawler in Aug. ... and they both attended UFC 244 last weekend with #45 himself.

As for Colby, he's been invited to 1600 Penn ... and even snapped a pic with Trump in the Oval Office.

So, when we saw DTJ out in NYC on Tuesday, we had to ask about the UFC megafight -- and if he'd ever consider walking a fighter out to the Octagon.

"I'd go out with Colby," Trump Jr. told us ... "He's become a good friend. There's a lot of great fighters out there but Colby's become a friend."

He might get his wish soon ... Colby is set to fight Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight championship at UFC 245 on Dec. 14 at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas.

In fact, Colby put Don Jr.'s new book "Triggered" front and center at the official UFC 245 press conference last week to announce the fight. He also rocked his signature red MAGA hat.

Felicity Huffman isn't above making new friends in prison ... she's yukking it up with her fellow inmates in the yard!!!

The "Desperate Housewives" star was spotted Wednesday at FCI Dublin in Northern California, where's she's currently serving her nearly 2-week sentence, and it's pretty interesting to see Felicity fraternizing with another convict.

SplashNews.com

As you can see, Felicity's strolling the prison yard with another inmate, chatting as they walk around in dark green jumpsuits and jackets. She's definitely not walling herself off from the rest of the prison population, even though she's rich and famous, and there for only a matter of days.

Ya gotta wonder if they're just talking TV, movies or those pesky SAT tests. Oh, to be a fly on the prison wall.

As we first told you ... husband William H. Macy and daughter Sophia paid Felicty a visit over the weekend ... but now it looks like she's got some friends on the inside.

Sources close to the beloved talk show host tell TMZ ... Wendy wants to keep the party going no matter what her haters think about her because the single life is just too good right now ... which is why she's flying south to Florida to let the good times roll.

Here's what we're told Wendy has in store for her girls while they're in Miami ... a nonstop celebration packed with yacht parties and club hopping.

Our sources say it's the second time Wendy's heading down to FL since divorcing Kevin Hunter ... but this trip is all about TURNING UP!!!

NO SHAME
TMZ.com

Wendy's been a party animal of late ... living it up with Rick Ross and Meek Mill at a New York City club, plus a Cali vacation that ended with her bringing a young hunk home for fancy dinners and shopping sprees.

If it sounds like a new Wendy at age 55 ... that's because it is. We're told she feels like she did back in the day when she was single, only this time she has the means to have a better time. You get the picture, right?

Wendy's full empty-nesting -- she's kicked Kevin aside and sent their kid off to college, so it's  time to spread her wings. We're told don't be surprised if she keeps the party going until next month when her show returns.

In other words, Wendy's ending her summer with a bang!!!

Cameron Boyce's BFF China Anne McClain Gets Emotional ... 'No Idea' He Had Epilepsy

Exclusive
STILL DEVASTATED
TMZ.com

"Descendants 3" star China Anne McClain grew up with her costar and BFF Cameron Boyce, and says his death hit her like a ton of bricks, because almost no one knew he was suffering from epilepsy.

China was on "TMZ Live" Friday to talk about Cameron and Friday's Disney Channel debut of his final movie, 'D3.' She says the premiere comes with mixed emotions on the heels of her dear friend passing. It was obvious she's still processing the loss.

She says only Cameron's family knew about his condition, and despite the fact she knew him for 10 years -- and starred in 4 movies with him -- she had "no idea."

She broke down as she explained how the simplest things remind her of Cam and sometimes send her on a roller coaster of emotions. China says she's even caught herself picking up the phone to text Cameron.

She says she still hasn't seen "Descendants 3," and confesses she's not sure she'll be able to make it through the whole thing when she finally does watch.

As we reported ... Disney canceled a red carpet event in Cameron's honor after he died last month in his sleep. The studio also made a donation to the Thirst Project ... a nonprofit close to Cameron.

China reminded us his family's launched the Cameron Boyce Foundation.

Ted Cruz It's Easy to Work with AOC ... When We Agree, That is!!!

EXCLUSIVE
STRONGER TOGETHER
TMZ.com

Ted Cruz says his unlikely alliance with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is simply a matter of agreeing on good policy, and if that's what it takes to spark some bipartisan cooperation ... he's all for it.

We got the Texas Senator Thursday at Reagan National Airport, and he opened up about his new BFF. Okay, that's a stretch, but he and AOC are working together to ban former members of Congress from becoming lobbyists, and to make birth control available over the counter. Cruz says their teams have already hooked up to get the ball rolling.

Conservative Ted says he's got no issues working with the NY's liberal rookie Congresswoman and adds, he'll reach across the aisle for anyone -- it's all about the policy, baby.

Then Ted got a little weird ... about his beard.

We asked him if his facial hair is responsible for his apparent softer side lately, and he reveals his fellow senator, Dianne Feinstein, hates it. Doesn't seem like he's willing to work with a Democrat on a compromise in this case though ... and he has a plan to make it even worse for her.

We'd truly have to see it to believe it.

Kylie Jenner My Pad's Officially Jordyn Woods-Less

EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner and her ex-bestie have a little more closure in their relationship ... because Jordyn Woods' belongings are no longer in her guest house.

Sources close to Kylie tell TMZ ... Jordyn came by and picked up her stuff about a week and a half ago, months after her hookup with Khloe's baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, got her ex-communicated from the Kardashian family.

We're told the reason it took so long is that Kylie was super chill about the situation ... but somebody else in the family wasn't. Our sources say that the person -- we're not allowed to say who -- recently noticed Jordyn's stuff was still there and thought it was ridiculous and disrespectful ... like she was using Kylie's pad for storage.

Kylie decided to get Jordyn to get her stuff out quickly after that ... to keep the peace in her fam.

We're told Kylie wasn't home when Jordyn came over, but the housekeeper let her in and there were no issues. As we've told you, the 2 have remained amicable throughout the ordeal even though they're not as close as they used to be. Our sources say they still text each other on occasion, as well.

ALWAYS A SILVER LINING

Jordyn and her mom -- especially her mom -- have even come out and praised Kylie and others in the fam and said they have love for everyone.

Russell Wilson To Seahawks Linemen ... You Each Get $12k In Amazon!

Forget watches, luggage and fancy booze ... Russell Wilson just thanked his Seahawks offensive line with the most Prime gift ever -- $12,000 in Amazon stock each!!

Remember, Wilson just signed a 4-year, $140 MILLION contract -- making the QB the highest paid player in the NFL.

So, to thank the guys who protect his ass, Russell busted out the credit card and spent a grand total of $156,000 on his 13 offensive linemen, TMZ Sports has learned.

Each player got a letter with the stock gift explaining why #3 hooked them up.

"Every Sunday we go to battle together," Wilson wrote ... "You sacrifice your physical and mental well-being to protect me, which in turn allows me to provide and care for my family."

"This does not go unnoticed and it is never forgotten."

Russell says he wants to help his teammates prepare for life after football and believes stock in Amazon will help these players achieve their dreams.

"When I sat down to think of ways to honor your dedication a dozen different ideas came to mind. Some were flashy, some were cool, but I wanted to give you something that had a lasting impact. Something that would affect the lives of you, your family, and your children."

"You have invested in my life ... this is my investment into yours."

The Seahawks play their 1st regular season game on Sept. 8 -- we'll see if his investment pays off!

Childish Gambino Fires Off Brand New Show How You Like Me Now, Coachella?!?

AN EXPLOSIVE PERFORMANCE
TMZ.com

Childish Gambino's performance for weekend 2 at Coachella was lit ... literally.

The rapper headlined day 1 Friday night at Coachella and it was fiery set ... literally and figuratively. For starters, last night's performance was completely different from last week's show. He also seemed to be in a friendlier mood this time around. He told the audience last week to put their phones away, but this time around he was in the crowd taking selfies and told the crowd they were dope.

Check out the vid ... Gambino closed his set with a display of fireworks and with his hit "Redbone."

Childish also got surprised backstage after he performed "This is America." When that set was over, he ran into Chance the Rapper and they bro'd out. Chance never took the stage nor performed. But, clearly, that didn't matter to Childish, who was stoked to see him.

Jordyn Woods I'll 'Always' Have Love for Kylie

EXCLUSIVE
LOVE ALL AROUND
TMZ.com

Jordyn Woods is hesitant to come right out and say it, but the message is very clear ... she's still got love for Kylie Jenner.

Jordyn and her mom, Elizabeth, were at LAX Thursday when we asked Jordyn if the support she's received from Jada Pinkett Smith and family helped her through her ordeal with the Kardashian-Jenner fam ... she tells us it's bigger than that. Much bigger.

It gets real interesting, though, when our guy asks if she hopes to rekindle her friendship with Kylie -- she gives a rather broad answer ... before Mom comes to the rescue.

Check it out for yourself ... Jordyn eventually says she'll "always" love her former BFF, but it takes some coaxing. Her mother's much more direct.

Regardless, Jordyn's fallout with Kylie has only made her more popular. Girl's signing autographs and posing for pics everywhere she goes ... even when it's not a celebrity hot spot.
