Remember, the James Gang children are not in Orlando to watch their papa in the NBA Finals ... with LeBron saying they're "too adventurous" to be in the bubble.
King James did the best he could for his son's big day ... sending his love in an emotional IG post.
"Happy 16 kid!!!!!" LeBron said Tuesday, "1 of a kind and I’ve loved every second of your existence so far in your young promising life!"
The superstar continued ... "You’re SPECIAL kid(always know that)! Continue to grow and continue to lead your generation to heights maybe you didn’t even think was possible because you guys are simply that SPECIAL!!"
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Bronny's already become a star in his own right over the years ... he's one of the most popular high school basketball players in the nation -- and he's teamed up with the super famous FaZe Clan.
"Thank you for allowing me to be your inspiration, leader, listener, mediator, as well as many more things but most importantly simply being YOUR DAD!"
"Love you kid until the wheels fall off and when they do we push the car to our destination side by side! Enjoy your day, your existence, your LIFE!! Live.Laugh.Learn.Love! 🙏🏾❤️🤴🏾👑 bronny #YoungSimba🦁"
Speaking of cars ... Bronny is of driving age now. Maybe buy back that epic 2003 H2 Hummer??
You've heard of the "Girl Dad" ... and now Katherine Webb is proud to be a "Boy Mom" ... with the NFL QB's wife announcing they're expecting their THIRD baby boy!!
Remember, Kobe Bryant famously boasted about having all daughters ... using the now-popular term to show pride in raising all girls in his household.
Webb is now going to be outnumbered 4-1 in her home ... with the married couple revealing their third boy is on the way in a gender reveal Monday.
"And God said...BAM! YOU’RE A BOY MOM 👦🏻👦🏻👶🏻," the former beauty queen said on Instagram. "PSA- prayers needed for my sanity 😄"
The Houston Texans backup and Miss Alabama USA 2012 welcomed their first son, Tripp, in May 2016 ... and Cash followed later in 2018.
BTW -- doesn't it feel like just yesterday the world was introduced to Webb via Brent Musburger at the 2013 national title game?!
As for A.J., he's clearly THRILLED by the news ... pumping his fists and yelling, "YEAHH, thank you!!!"
Don't be surprised if a couple of these boys end up following their dad and lining up under center someday.
Congrats on the baby!!!
Melania Trump fumed during a secretly-recorded conversation, railing on the criticism President Trump received over separating mothers from their children at the border and expressing extreme frustration about the way the "liberal media" treats her and her husband.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Melania's former aide and former best friend, Linda Tripped her, recording their conversation without the First Lady's knowledge. Melania was venting about the attacks she fielded over separating mothers and kids at the border, saying, "Give me a f***ing break!" She went on, "Where they were saying anything when Obama did that?"
The First Lady talked about her trip to the border and how she was thwarted in reuniting a child with the mother ... "I was trying to get the kid reunited with the mom. I didn't have a chance -- needs to go through the process and through the law." She says the press would not cover her efforts, saying, "They would not do the story because they, they, they are against us, because they're the liberal media." And, then she said ... "Yeah, if I [go] to Fox, they will do the story. I don't want to go to Fox."
And, then there's Saint Nick. In the recording, first played on CNN, Melania says, "Where I am, I put, I'm working like my ass off at Christmas stuff that you know, who gives a f*** about Christmas stuff and decoration. But, I need to do it, right?"
Does everybody secretly tape everybody in the world of Trump?
Get a load of this ridiculous lawsuit -- Tamron Hall's being sued for a whopping $16 million after telling a mom during a nationally-televised episode she wouldn't want her own kid to hug the mom's unvaccinated son.
Jeanine DiAngelo just sued Tamron individually and on behalf of her son, claiming they were embarrassed after Tamron compared her son to a "leper" during an episode about vaccinations that aired on ABC back in September 2019 ... this according to docs obtained by TMZ.
In docs, DiAngelo claims Tamron said she would NOT let her son anywhere near DiAngelo's son much less hug him because he's not vaccinated. DiAngelo says Tamron violated NY law by discriminating against her and their religious beliefs.
What's more ... she claims Tamron wasn't prepared for the segment ... arguing Tamron's lack of education on the topic caused her and her son to suffer colossal emotional distress.
Thing is ... the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said, should parents choose NOT to vaccine their kids, they should be prepared for the risks and responsibilities that come with that. One of those risks ... parents with kids that ARE vaccinated are probably told to stay clear of kids who aren't.
DiAngelo's suing Hall, Disney and the production company for $16 million in damages. For what it's worth ... Tamron did hug DiAngelo's son.
We reached out to Tamron for comment ... so far, no word back.
Brad Williams says he wouldn't trade his life and take a drug that could make him taller, but he understands why others would, and adds ... he and his wife are considering it for their daughter.
We got the comedian at a Starbucks in L.A. Wednesday and got his take on the controversial new drug, Vosoritide, which has been shown to restore nearly average bone growth rates of children with achondroplasia ... the most common form of dwarfism, which Brad has.
Brad lays out the potentially significant impact of the drug and how it can improve the lives of kids with dwarfism, but on the flip side ... he's well aware giving it to a child creates an ethical conundrum.
He even gives us a personal example demonstrating how difficult this decision might be for little people ... and that sets up his larger point. Brad says no matter what a person thinks about the drug ... it should be left up to those actually affected by dwarfism to make the call.
As for Brad's 9-month-old little girl ... he shared a video a while back showing off one of her special attributes due to her dwarfism.
No debate about this -- she's adorable.
"Tarzan" star Ron Ely is blaming the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department for his wife and son's deaths ... claiming deputies didn't attempt to save their lives and neglected his wife after she was stabbed and he was shot.
The Ely family deaths occurred in a bizarre and violent manner on October 15, 2019 -- Ron's son, Cameron, stabbed Ron's wife, Valerie, in the family's home. Deputies responded, but in a new lawsuit, Ron claims deputies on scene did not call for medical personnel to help Valerie.
In docs, obtained by TMZ, Ron claims he requested emergency services after Valerie suffered stab wounds to her chest and lung. He claims several deputies showed up to the scene around 8:15 PM, but failed to check if Valerie was still alive.
Ron also claims deputies obstructed fire department medical personnel from entering the home to provide treatment. In all, he claims Valerie went without treatment for 30 minutes ... and was pronounced dead at 8:42 PM.
As for Cameron's death ... Ron claims his son was unarmed on their property later that night when deputies found him. According to the suit, Cameron was unarmed and had his hands up when the cops opened fire, hitting Cameron 22 times. Ron claims Cameron also went without medical assistance for at least 13 minutes, and was left to die in the driveway.
As we reported ... cops had said Cameron posed a threat when they found him, and as a result, 4 deputies opened fire. Ron insists Cameron didn't pose any threat.
He's suing the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department and the city of Santa Barbara for wrongful death and unspecified damages.
The top high school basketball rankings for the class of 2023 just dropped ... and there are a couple VERY familiar names on the list -- Dajuan Wagner Jr. and Bronny James!!!
It's no secret -- LeBron James' 15-year-old son has been gaining massive hype since arriving on the scene ... and the skills he showed off during his freshman year at Sierra Canyon in CA has him at #30 on 247 Sports' list.
Dajuan Wagner's son is the one sitting at the #1 spot ... with 6'3" guard D.J. balling out at Camden HS in Jersey and averaging 18.5 points per game last season.
BTW -- hoops runs DEEP in the Wagner blood -- Dajuan famously scored 100 points in a HS game, was a star at Memphis and went on to be the #6 overall pick in the 2002 NBA Draft ... and Dajuan's father, Milt, played several seasons in the Association as well.
While nothing's official, there's already big talk of D.J. playing for his dad's old coach, John Calipari, at Kentucky in a few years.
Coming in at #2 is Internet phenom Mikey Williams out of Lake Norman in NC, whose highlights have gotten millions of views on YouTube.
Williams averaged just below 30 points, 6.7 rebounds and almost 5 assists per game last season.
The future of hoops is lookin' bright!!!

NFL lineman D.J. Fluker claims his ex-girlfriend kidnapped their daughter earlier this month -- and he's concerned things could get worse.
Here's the deal ... Fluker claims his ex, Kimberly Davis, was supposed to have a supervised visit with their daughter and Fluker's sister on Sept. 19, while the Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman was away in Houston to play the Texans.
But, Davis allegedly kicked Fluker's sister out of the apartment and refused to return the child back to D.J. Fluker reportedly told Davis she did NOT have permission to keep their daughter overnight but Davis still wouldn't hand over the kid.
So, 29-year-old Fluker called police -- but Davis still refused to return the child.
Finally, cops arrested Davis on Sept. 22 and now she's facing a charge of kidnapping a child younger than 16 years old.
If convicted, Davis faces up to 30 days in jail and a $250 fine. She's since been released from custody.
Fluker told cops he's in "fear for the safety of our daughter" and added, "I don’t feel safe during this time," according to The Baltimore Sun.
Davis was arrested back in July after allegedly punching Fluker in the nose during a dispute. She was charged with 2nd-degree assault for that incident.
Fluker -- 6'5", 340 pounds -- was the 11th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft after dominating at Alabama. He's played for the Chargers, Giants, Seahawks and Ravens.
The father who shielded his kids in a shootout might be out of a job, but he's not out of money or help -- he's up hundreds of thousands in donations, plus a lifeline for his children.
A GoFundMe for Anthony Jefferson was started shortly after news spread about his heroic deed last week -- jumping on top of his three kids at a car dealership when bullets started flying -- and the account has already swelled to a whopping $273,891 ... and counting.
The largest donation came in from an anonymous person, who dropped $25k. Lots of other donations have been coming in anonymously as well, in increments of $2k, $1k and then into the hundreds. In all, there's been roughly 8,000 people who've contributed.
That'll certainly help Anthony -- whose wife recently told us he'd been canned from two gigs of his in painting and construction ... all because he was injured from the shooting and was going to be out of commission for a while. As crappy as that is, people are clearly lending a hand to hold him and his family over for the time being.
There's more assistance on the horizon though, if Anthony and co. want it. Dr. Raha Didevar of Big HeArts Interventions tells TMZ ... she'd be willing to offer Anthony's three young children therapy via Zoom pro bono once a week ... for a year or more if they need it.
Dr. Didevar tells us she'd work to earn the kids' trust, and once that was established ... she'd set up a plan for their therapy sessions. All the family has to do is get in touch.
Chrissy Teigen's in the hospital due to heavy bleeding during the pregnancy of her third child, and though she says it's scary right now ... she also says her baby boy's still doing well.
It sounds really bad ... Chrissy says her placenta's been bleeding for about a month, but it got much worse over the weekend. She had a pretty vivid description, saying ... "Like if you were to turn a faucet onto low and leave it there."
The supermodel, chef and TV host is still keeping fans informed by posting lots of video from her L.A. hospital bed. The good news -- Chrissy says the doctors are taking great care of her, she feels really good and her baby is "so healthy, growing stronger than Luna or Miles" ... her 4-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son with John Legend.
She adds that her baby is "just the strongest little dude," but he just so happens to be "in the sh***iest house" -- Chrissy's description of her weakened placenta.
Chrissy says she's taking her meds and remaining on bed rest like she's supposed to, and they have to just relax and try to get through the "danger zone" of the next few weeks ... then things will be looking much better.
BTW -- John was at her side in the hospital room, and whipped some sandwiches at one point before getting some Zzz's in a chair.
Joe Montana is a badass ... first grabbing the alleged kidnapper who snatched his grandchild right inside his home, then grabbing some grub at a fancy restaurant.
Joe hit up Nobu in Malibu Saturday night, just hours after he and his wife, Jennifer, had an enormous scare. TMZ Sports broke the story ... and a 39-year-old woman got inside the Malibu home where Joe and Jennifer were staying, spotted their 9-month-old grandchild and scooped the infant up. She went to another part of the house, where Joe and Jennifer confronted her and got the baby back.
Someone inside the home flagged down cops, who happened to be on the same block, and the woman was caught and arrested for burglary and kidnapping.
The famed, former QB said it was scary, but there was a happy ending, life goes on, and the sushi's great at Nobu, so there you go -- all in a day's work.
The family of Coliesa McMillian -- who appeared on Season 8 of "My 600-lb. Life" -- was thankfully allowed to see her in the hospital before she died ... something they feared would not be possible due to COVID restrictions.
Coliesa passed away Tuesday at a hospital in Louisiana, but her mother, Sadie Courville, tells TMZ she'd been at the Baton Rouge facility for quite a while ... and they hadn't been able to visit her due to pandemic rules.
She says the hospital made an exception when it was clear Coliesa was on her deathbed, allowing her and Coliesa's 2 teenage daughters in to say their final goodbyes.
Sadie says she patted Coliesa's arm while her girls cried and held her hand.
According to Coliesa's mom ... the family doesn't know the exact cause of death, but she says her health went downhill after she underwent weight loss surgery and sadly, she never recovered.
A rep for the East Baton Rouge Coroner's Office tells us ... a review of Coliesa's medical records shows she died of natural causes due to complications from that surgery months ago.
Coliesa was 41.
1:39 PM PT -- Joe Montana just tweeted out an update about the scary situation that unfolded at his home.
He writes, "Thank you to everyone who has reached out. Scary situation, but thankful that everybody is doing well. We appreciate respect for our privacy at this time."
12:56 PM PT -- LASD has shed a bit more light on how exactly Joe Montana's grandkid was almost snatched in plain sight -- they say the intruder made her way into his home and actually removed the infant (who was asleep) from a playpen, holding them in her arms.
At that point, the Sheriff's Department says Joe and his wife, Jennifer, confronted the woman, attempting to deescalate the situation, asking the lady to give them back the child. Eventually, LASD says a scuffle ensued and Jennifer was able to safely pry the baby from the woman's arms. She fled, but was picked up by cops soon after and taken into custody.
LASD says all parties were unharmed in the incident, including the 9-month-old child. The suspect as been identified as Sodsai Dalzell.
Joe Montana and his wife had the scare of their life Saturday, when an intruder came inside the house and snatched one of their grandchildren right out of a woman's arms.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports ... at 5 PM Saturday a 39-year-old woman entered the home where Joe and Jennifer Montana were staying -- she got in through an unlocked door. The intruder saw a woman holding a baby -- it's unclear who was holding the infant.
Our law enforcement sources say the intruder walked away with Montana's grandchild to another part of the house where she was confronted by Joe and Jennifer. They wrestled the baby away from the woman. The intruder then ran out of the house.
Turns out L.A. County Sheriff's deputies were on the same block on an unrelated matter. Someone inside the home flagged the deputies down, told them what happened and they found the intruder a few blocks away.
The woman was booked on kidnapping and burglary charges.

We got Princess Love Thursday in WeHo, walking into Catch ... and wanted to get her take on what her estranged hubby said on "The Real" earlier this week. ICYMI ... Ray J told the panel he spent all weekend with his kids and Princess Love and realized they still have "a really, really good thing." When the panel asked if he'd now be down for counseling ... Ray J said he would be up for it and whatever it takes to keep both parents together.
Well, it's all news to Princess Love, who made it crystal clear -- Ray J's last-ditch effort falls way short. And, she seems to be okay with moving on ... acknowledging she's happy and hopes the same for Ray J. Ouch.
As we reported ... Ray J filed for divorce earlier this month citing irreconcilable differences. Remember, Princess Love initially filed for divorce back in May. They reconciled over the summer but clearly, it didn't last. They tied the knot in 2016 and have 2 kids together.
