Exclusive
THE EMOTIONAL EVENT
Borderline Bar

The Thousand Oaks bar where 12 people were killed in a shooting rampage hosted its first public gathering at the site of the tragedy, with hundreds of people showing up Sunday night for a ceremonial tree lighting ... a tribute to the victims.

The Borderline Bar & Grill parking lot was buzzing with activity for the first time since the November mass shooting ... with the community coming together to listen to country music, line dance and remember those they lost by illuminating an oak tree that served as a symbol of healing in the shooting's aftermath.

Borderline Bar owner Brian Hynes says the oak tree -- located on the edge of the bar parking lot -- will be remain lit every night to represent the 12 people who were killed. People gathered at the tree in the days after the shooting, sharing hugs, shedding tears and lending each other support.

Following the ceremonial tree lighting, the crowd stuck around and everyone sang Garth Brooks' country classic, "Friends in Low Places."

You may recall ... the massacre occurred last November during the bar's popular College Country Night, when a retired Marine stormed the venue and killed 12 people before police shot and killed him.

Borderline Bar & Grill remains shut down.

Young Dro Pudding Popped Arrested for Attacking GF w/ Banana Dessert

Exclusive

Well, this is a first ... a rapper was arrested in Georgia for weaponizing banana pudding.

Seriously.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Young Dro was arrested on July 5 for allegedly throwing a plate of banana pudding at his girlfriend during an argument at their Atlanta-area home.

We're told the two had been arguing over money -- but things got heated and the food started flying ... with both sides launching whatever delicious items they could find at each other.

Cops were called to the scene -- and despite the fact his GF made it clear she didn't want to press charges, they arrested Dro anyway.

He's now facing 2 counts of misdemeanor battery/family violence.

He's still in jail too -- according to law enforcement sources -- because he's also being held on a child support contempt order. The legal docs say he owes almost $41k in back child support, and needs to pay $10k to be released from custody.

Our Young Dro sources say the child support case involves another baby mama -- not his current GF who he had the pudding spat with -- and the rapper claims he's all paid up ... so it's a clerical error.

Young Dro's best known for his 2006 track "Shoulder Lean" featuring T.I. ... and had another hit single in 2013 called "FDB."

Jadakiss When it Comes to My Pizza ... Only Crust is a Must

Exclusive
CRUST ME
TMZ.com

Jadakiss says there's logic behind his pizza crust ordering practices ... when there's cheese on the pie, they have to give him plenty of dairy-air.

The "Why" rapper raised eyebrows this week when a Brooklyn pizza shop posted an image on social media showing his custom order ... a cheese pizza with the center cut out, leaving behind nothing but a ring of crust.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Jadakiss tells us the crust has been his favorite part of pizza since he was a kid ... and now that he's 44, he cuts right to the chase and skips everything except the crust because he's on a health kick, and dairy is not part of his diet.

Jadakiss says that's been his drill for years -- cheese pizza, hold the cheese.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Kiss says the viral image is actually from a year ago, and his good friend, the owner of Cuts and Slices pizza shop in Brooklyn, re-posted it after another pizza parlor announced it was now offering a pie made only of crust.

Jadakiss' odd order sent the Internet into a tizzy ... but he's not dishing back the hate he's received. He says pizza lovers should order their pies however they want, and he's got nothing against peeps who pile on cheese. It just ain't for him.

Anyone else hungry?

Kobayashi has some Grade A beef with Joey Chestnut ... the former wiener-eating champ says JC is a huge cheater -- and is questioning if the guy is REALLY pounding 70-plus hot dogs!!!

We got Kobayashi out in NYC and he didn't hold back when we asked about Chestnut ... saying (through a translator) he thinks Joey's a food-chomping cheat.

"I've personally, definitely witnessed some cheating, yes," Kobayashi says. "One example, we were eating for a pizza P'Zone competition years ago and he was throwing the hardest part to eat -- the crust -- into the box the whole time."

In fact, Kobayashi thinks Joey is such a swindler, he's questioning Chestnut's most famous record -- 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes!!!

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello Smooching in San Fran ... Clear as Day

Exclusive
TMZ

12:26 PM PT -- Here it is -- a clear shot of Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello locking lips in public ... with what appears to be some gnarly morning-after hair to boot. Heyooo!! TMZ got a hold of these photos of Shawn and Camila enjoying coffee this Saturday AM at another cafe in SF -- a different joint than where they initially smooched Friday, we're told. You can see them laughing it up in between pecks and sips of their morning Joe. Shawn looks like he just rolled out of bed ... Camila too, for that matter. If yesterday's clip didn't make things official, this almost certainly does. They're together.

TMZ

Shawn Mendes certainly insinuated he was not dating Camila Cabello, but who's you gonna believe ... him or your lyin' eyes???

Check out this vid of Shawn and Camila making out at Dottie's True Blue Cafe Friday in San Francisco.

It did seem all too coincidental that Shawn and Camila were all over each other at the exact time they released their song, "Senorita," but they seem to be all over the place -- L.A., SFO, etc, and they're all over each other!!!

Shawn's in San Fran because he's got a concert at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum tonight and tomorrow. He's currently touring the U.S.

We're guessing he's comping Camila.

BTW ... Shawn is 20 and Camila is 22.  

Daniel Sturridge Takes Dog to Lunch After Burglary ... Alleged Hero Pissed

Breaking News
SplashNews.com

Soccer star Daniel Sturridge is returning to normalcy after he was reunited with his beloved dog, Lucci, following a burglary at his L.A. home ... taking his pet out for a fancy lunch date. 

But, there's a big problem behind the scenes ... because the man who claims he FOUND the dog after the incident is saying Sturridge never made good on paying reward money. 

As we previously reported, the former Liverpool striker said money was no object -- he'd pay ANY amount if someone could help him find his Pomeranian following the burglary at the L.A. home where he's been staying. 

A rapper named Killa Fame posted photos of the dog on social media after claiming his nephew spotted the dog while going to the store around 9 PM on Tuesday. 

Sturridge was eventually put in touch with Killa Fame -- and he drove up and got the dog back

The problem now ... Killa Fame claims he was expecting Sturridge to cut a $30k check for the safe return of the dog, but it never happened. 

"Honestly I’m just disappointed @DanielSturridge offer of [$30,000] is a life changing amount of money," Killa Fame tweeted ... "especially when your without a home to live in with your family."

Fame is also pissed some people are accusing him of stealing the dog -- and he made a video to clap back. 

As we previously reported, the LAPD is investigating the burglary -- but so far they have not made any arrests, only noting that Sturridge did not think the person who returned the dog had a role in stealing him in the first place.  

'Stranger Things' Starcourt Mall Out of Business IRL ... Stay Away, Fans!!!

Exclusive
Netflix

The Starcourt Mall from "Stranger Things" is indeed a real place and might look like a fun spot to visit ... but fans who try will be very disappointed.

Yes, the main setting for much of season 3 of the hit Netflix series is Starcourt, which was shot at a real location -- the Gwinnett Place Mall in Duluth, Georgia -- from May to November in 2018.

The fun's all over now, though ... a publicist for the show tells TMZ the Starcourt scenes were all shot within one wing of the mall, and the set is currently being torn down. We're told security is on the scene turning people away if they try to get to the area where 'Stranger' was shot.

The mall was mostly vacant before production started, and the show was able to rent out an entire wing, including the food court, that wasn't being used.

That wing of Gwinnett Place was transformed into a late '80s-looking mall, complete with 40 stores like Sam Goody, Waldenbooks and the Scoops Ahoy ice cream parlor where Steve works.

Now that production's wrapped, we're told there is no plan to return to the location ... so it's business as usual inside the sleepy mall.

Sorry, die-hard fans ... you can still visit the mall, it just won't have that 'Stranger' feel. Almost as devastating as that season finale, right?

Bill Cosby Cut Carbs and Sugar in Prison ... Barters for Healthy Stuff

Exclusive
TMZ Composite

Bill Cosby's days of eating Jell-O and Pudding Pops are over -- and not just because he's behind bars ... he's simply sworn off sweets and carb-loaded foods.

The disgraced TV dad's spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt, tells TMZ ... since the day he was sentenced for sexual assault, Cosby has sworn off unhealthy foods. We're told he hasn't touched bread, desserts or any of the prison menu items filled with starch and sugar.

He's also given up coffee.

Wyatt says Cosby's health kick means he mostly noshes on fruits and vegetables, and he trades his bread, coffee and junk food to other inmates for their healthy grub ... especially broccoli, apples and bananas.

As for what inspired Cosby's diet ... we're told he didn't want to become an overweight prisoner who ends up suffering from diabetes like many others. So, even in his 80s, he felt he's not too old to eat right.

On top of that, Bill's got an exercise regiment in place that includes riding a stationary bike and doing crunches.

Wyatt says Cosby's lost a considerable amount of weight since he got locked up -- he down from 220 lbs. to 187 lbs.

And, he's still got at least a couple years left on his sentence ... possibly many more.

Kodak, Suge, Situation, Cohen July 4 Prison Meals ... All-American Fare

Exclusive
TMZ/Getty Composite

Celebrity prisoners spending their July 4th holiday behind bars will chow down on an Independence Day spread like the rest of us ... filling their bellies with fatty foods. 

TMZ's obtained prison menus from across the nation, and locked-up celebs Kodak Black, Suge Knight, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Michael Cohen are being treated to some pretty standard All-American fare ... mostly burgers and hot dogs. 

Here'a a breakdown of their Fourth food options:

The Situation and Michael Cohen at New York's FCI Otisville: 

-- Hamburgers, french fries, baked potatoes, sliced onions, pickles and fruit

Sitch is 6 months into his 8-month sentence for tax evasion, so this could be his last holiday meal behind bars. Not so for Cohen. President Trump's former personal attorney is just 2 months into his 3-year sentence for tax fraud and campaign finance violations.

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

-- Hot dogs, cheeseburgers, crinkle-cut fries, cucumber onion salad, watermelon and chocolate milk

Suge is serving a 28-year sentence after striking a plea deal last year in his murder case. Remember, he's been on the inside since 2015 ... so he knows the game by now. No fireworks.

Kodak Black at FDC Miami:

-- BBQ roast beef, sliced beef sausage, hamburger buns, baked beans, mac and cheese, potato salad, sliced onions, sliced pickles and cheesecake 

The feds are keeping Kodak locked up until he goes on trial in September for lying on federal gun applications. 

Joey Chestnut Peter King's 'Narrow-minded' For Dissing Hot Dog Contest

Exclusive
A NARROW MINDED VIEW
TMZSports.com

Hot dog eating god Joey Chestnut has a brand new BEEF -- this time, he's biting back at legendary sports reporter Peter King who's crapping all over food eating competitions. 

FYI, King has a real problem with ESPN releasing a new "30 for 30" special this week on the rivalry between Chestnut and his wiener-gobbling rival, Takeru Kobayashi

"A shame that as at least a fifth of children in America go to bed hungry nightly [ESPN is] highlighting gluttony, treating someone who overeats excessively as a 'competitive athlete,'" King wrote ... "Truly disgusting."

So, when we spotted Chestnut in NYC -- getting ready to defend his mustard yellow belt at the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4 on Coney Island, we had to ask for his thoughts. 

"I think Peter King ... he's kind of narrow-minded," Chestnut said ... "He's picking low hanging fruit."

"It's easy to criticize something ... he could easily criticize NASCAR for greenhouse gas emissions."

Chestnut says at the end of the day, the amount of food consumed at the competition is "very small" -- and notes that Major League Eating is very involved in donating to food banks around the country.

There's more ... Chestnut also said he wants to end his rivalry with Kobayashi once and for all -- telling TMZ Sports he'd love to sit down with Takeru and hash things out once and for all.

However, this won't be just your average pizza party ... Steve says he'll invite the masses in an attempt to break some world records.

Exclusive
SODA MODE

We know how Travis Scott is gonna be getting his goosebumps now -- aside from Kylie Jenner --  it's a baller vending machine built to satisfy all his cravings! Well, most of 'em.

The Astroworld commemorative machine will be installed in Travis' office, and besides kicking out some very cool snacks, it also projects a 3D spinning hologram image of Trav's "Astroworld" album cover. 

It was designed by Houston-based beverage company Exotic Pop, and owner Charleston Wilson says they were happy to deliver when the rapper reached out for a customized vending machine.

And, if Travis or his crew doesn't see something they like, they can use the display to place a custom order, and have it delivered.

BTW ... Exotic Pop built Lil Pump his very own soda vending machine earlier this year ... which came complete with freakin' Apple TV!
