Felicity Huffman & William H. Macy 'When They See Us' ... We'll be at Sofia Grace's Graduation

6/11/2019 7:03 AM PDT

Felicity Huffman's fresh off playing a villain on Netflix -- and in federal court -- but in real life, she and William H. Macy are celebrating getting their kid into a cap and gown.

The couple attended daughter Sofia Grace's high school graduation ceremony Monday, as the L.A. High School of the Arts Class of 2019 was honored. The proud parents showed up dressed for the occasion ... for which they've been preparing for a couple weeks.

We've seen Sofia's mom and dad buying graduation balloons and flower arrangements, and now the big day was finally here. It couldn't have come at a better time for Felicity ... who's been going through it professionally and personally.

She officially entered her guilty plea last month in the college admissions scandal, and is now looking at the possibility of up to 4 months in prison when she's sentenced in September.

And, then there's all the buzz around Felicity's role as Linda Fairstein in the Netflix limited series, "When They See Us." 

The series paints the former Manhattan prosecutor as the mastermind behind the false convictions of the Central Park 5 -- and Fairstein's been publicly lambasted since the series debuted.

Felicity plays her pretty brilliantly, but PR-wise -- on the heels of her federal case -- a Disney fairy godmother role might have been better. Timing. 

Like we said, at least she's got something to celebrate now.

Wendy Williams Hanging Out With New Guy in L.A. ... Taking Him To NYC

6/10/2019 12:44 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wendy Williams met a young hotshot in Los Angeles ... and now she's taking him with her back to New York. 

Sources close to Wendy tell TMZ ... the beloved talk show host met her new hunk Saturday when she was kicking it with Blac Chyna during her Cali vacation, and while she's not ready to jump into a relationship just yet, she likes him enough to keep him around.  

Turns out, Wendy's mystery man is the same guy who was riding with her Sunday night, when a photog caught up with them at Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles. He's in his late 20s, and doesn't have any kids.

As you know ... Wendy's dealing with a lot of family drama, she's in the middle of divorcing husband Kevin Hunter and her son recently got arrested for punching his dad. We're told Wendy's feeling vulnerable right now, and being with someone new is making her feel better about herself. 

Wendy's already showing him off on social media, posting a pic of them holding hands with some interesting hashtags ... #oldenoughtobeyourmother, #verysexyman and #mynewlife. 

Britney Spears Jet Skiing Off into the Sunset ... Or So It Seems

6/9/2019 1:44 PM PDT

Britney Spears seems to be getting back to her normal life one couple's activity at a time -- this time she's jet skiing in Florida ... but not without some advanced planning on the part of her father/conservator.

The singer was down in Miami this weekend alongside her boyfriend, Sam Asghari, as the two of them mounted some WaveRunners and hit the water with a splash. She was riding solo, and seemed to be enjoying herself as she caught some speed.

Britney's been going out a lot more lately with Sam -- whether it's hitting the town on a date near Thousand Oaks or going for a bike ride with the dude ... she's very visible.

What's even more intriguing about her cross-country trip here is that her father and primary conservator, Jamie Spears, filed court docs last month seeking to extend the conservatorship to include 3 other states outside of Cali ... and Florida's one of them.

At the time, we were told Jamie knew the Sunshine State is one of the places Brit likes visiting, so he preemptively sought to get a handle on things amid all the #FreeBritney drama from last month ... which appears to have simmered down since her court appearance.

We don't know if Jamie's request to make the conservatorship valid in those 3 states was ultimately granted or not, but if it was ... you can bet he's maintaining a watchful eye.

Treach & Pepa Daughter Egypt Gets Engaged!!! Cameras Rolling, Of Course

6/8/2019 12:46 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Growing Up Hip Hop" just hit a big milestone -- Treach and Pepa's daughter is officially tying the knot with her BF ... despite some of her friends and family's on-screen objections. 

The rap couple's only kid, Egypt, was performing early Saturday morning at WeHo's Whiskey a Go Go alongside her reality TV beau, Sammattick -- a fellow MC himself. In footage obtained by TMZ, you can see Sam pop the question in front of a packed house.

Spoiler alert ... she said yes!!! Another spoiler alert ... we're told cameras were rolling during the onstage engagement, so this is definitely gonna be featured in the upcoming 5th season of the show.

Here's why the proposal is kind of a big deal in the 'GUHH' world -- Egypt and Sam almost had themselves a shotgun Vegas wedding last year, which Egypt's entire inner circle rushed to halt at the very last minute ... and seemed very much so against.

Pepa doesn't seem to like the dude all that much either, suggesting there are red flags about him that Egypt isn't necessarily seeing herself. Talk about sticking it to your mom, right?

There was also a potential love triangle problem that got teased in the season 4 finale a few months ago, with rapper Lil Twist showing some interest in Egypt ... right in front of Sam, no less.

Looks like Twist's s*** out of luck for the long game -- 'cause Egypt's truly locked up now ... or so it seems. Oh, and congrats to the happy couple!!!

Rihanna Boatload O' Dough ... as the Rich Get Richer!!!

6/7/2019 11:24 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rihanna's latest crowning achievement calls for a yacht of fun ... off southern Italy's Amalfi Coast with her super-rich BF and a bunch of friends in tow.

RiRi, billionaire BF Hassan Jameel and several others hit up Positano, Italy and needed to cram into a small boat before pouring into a yacht for a little relaxation afloat the crystal blue waters.

The vacay comes on the heels of Forbes earlier this week naming Rihanna the wealthiest female musician in the world ... with an estimated fortune of about 600 MILLION BUCKS. Madonna was a close second at $570 mil and Celine Dion ($450M) and Beyonce ($400M) trailed behind.

Nevertheless ... pretty sure Rihanna's smile was all Hassan's doing. They've been going strong since 2017. His family, btw, is worth an estimated $2.2 billion as of 2017. 

But, make no mistake ... Rihanna's the reason we can call them a true power couple.

Wendy Williams Divorce Be Damned ... I'm Still Rocking Huge Diamonds!!!

6/7/2019 6:57 AM PDT

12:44 PM PT -- Turns out the thing Wendy ISN'T giving up during her divorce is her taste for glam. We've learned that ring on that notorious finger is not her original wedding ring, but some very serious flower bling nonetheless.

Wendy Williams isn't letting an ugly breakup and divorce get in the way of a beautiful, massive diamond ring ... and she's making sure everyone knows it.

Wendy's out on the left coast and Thursday night we got her outside Craig's, where she was having a business dinner. Photogs quickly noticed her gajillion-carat wedding ring -- hard not to, it's blinding -- and asked her about it, point-blank.

Watch the vid ... she doesn't speak much, but she says a lot by blatantly flaunting the ring to cameras.

As you know Wendy filed to divorce Kevin Hunter back in April, shortly after he and his alleged mistress had a baby. It's been a nasty split ... with Kevin getting booted from his job as executive producer on her talk show -- and more recently getting into a fight with their son, Kevin Jr.

Despite all of that, Wendy's continued rocking the rock, on and off TV. Don't read anything into it, though -- our Wendy sources say there's absolutely no reconciliation going down.

Husbands come and go, but y'know what they say about a girl's BFF.

Irina Shayk Suited to Fly Solo

6/7/2019 7:56 AM PDT

Irina Shayk is getting the hell outta dodge, and no time like the present ... with all the buzz that she and Bradley Cooper are dunzo.

The supermodel was seen Thursday leaving the L.A. home she shares with Bradley, suitcase in hand, on her way to LAX. It wasn't "I'm moving out" luggage ... just one bag -- and she was pretty smiley for cameras.

So, if they really are breaking up after 4 years together ... Irina's doing a good job of at least looking unfazed by it.

Irina and Bradley started dating in 2015 and they had a baby girl, Lea De Seine, 2 years later.

It's unclear if Irina was intentionally going for a "Ghostbusters" look with her travel ensemble, but -- apologies to Bill Murray -- no one's ever done it better.

Who's she gonna call? That's what Bradley wants to know.

Jenelle Evans' 911 Call David Opened Letter Full of Suspicious Powder

6/6/2019 11:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jenelle Evans and David Eason were in the car when David opened their mail and discovered a disturbing letter ... adding major insult to injury for the couple.

According to the 911 call -- made by Jenelle -- her husband opened a letter addressed to her in her car when a powder came pouring out of it ... causing him to throw the rest of the mail outside on the ground.

Jenelle tells the operator the return address made it seem like it was from Brunswick County Clerk ... making it look like important mail. She says David -- obviously -- was freaked out by it.

As we reported ... Jenelle and David received the suspicious package on May 15, just moments after the couple lost custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Ensley

Now we know Jenelle's the one who phoned 911 to report the substance when they got back from the hearing, and cops responded shortly after to file a report. It's still unclear if the powder was a real threat or a hoax.

Beyonce Epic Side-Eye To Wife of Warriors Owner!!!

6/6/2019 2:00 PM PDT
Breaking News

2:00 PM PT -- Curran says she has received death threats over the interaction ... further explaining that she was just trying to get Hov's drink order and leaned closer because she couldn't hear what he said. For what it's worth, he ordered a vodka soda.

Who dareth upset Beyonce?!!?!?!

Check this out ... Beyonce and Jay-Z were sitting courtside at Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday ... when a woman leaned over Her Beyness to talk to Jay. 

Suddenly, Bey went from smiling and happy ... to SIDE-EYE -- and it was all captured on video. 

So, who is the woman? Her name is Nicole Curran -- and she's not just some random fan -- she's married to Warriors owner Joe Lacob!!!!!

After the clip went viral, Nicole was CRUSHED on social media by the Beyhive -- so she posted a pic essentially telling everyone to chill out. 

"We should all help and support each other," Nicole said. 

Oh, and she also disabled the comments on the post because the Beyhive can be RUTHLESS!!!!

Meanwhile, Twitter is going crazy over the incident ... 

@KaraRBrown -- "I would leave the earth if Beyonce looked this ready to smack me"

@Cyn_Santana -- "How you hover over Beyoncé like that is she crazy???"

@NiaNRiley -- "Who’s the bitch annoying Beyoncé?!"

@KingJosiah54 -- "Beyonce: 'This Becky with the good hair bout to get her wig split'"

@Quotemeorelse -- "I swear Beyonce looked like she was bout to snatch a bitch up during #game3."

And, to top it all off, the Warriors got WHOOPED by the Toronto Raptors ... so bad night for Golden State.

Offset Ignores Autograph Hound's Lawsuit ... Takes the 'L' by Default

6/5/2019 7:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Offset is gonna lose some cash because he apparently lost track of one lingering legal issue -- the beatdown his security put on an autograph seeker after last year's Met Gala.

TMZ got the wild video of the May 2018 incident ... the 'grapher was trying to get Cardi B's John Hancock after the gala ... only to get his ass kicked by a bunch of guys he believed to be Cardi and Offset's hired muscle. 

The overzealous fan, Giovanni Arnold, filed a lawsuit and had asked a judge to grant him a default judgment back in April of this year. He said Offset hadn't said a peep in response to the lawsuit ... and the judge granted his wish this week.

It's unclear how much Offset is on the hook for now, or if he plans to challenge the default judgment in court. Considering Cardi's been taking care of business on her end -- she was sued for this as well, and has been responding -- we imagine Offset will fight it. 

When the ass whooping went down last year ... Cardi's camp said the guy was being super aggressive in trying to obtain the autograph. In one video clip ... you can hear Giovanni egg on CB and Offset's entourage.

Giovanni was loaded onto a stretcher and transported to a hospital. Neither Offset nor Cardi actually put hands on him, FWIW.

Buffalo Bills Rookie Accused of Domestic Violence ... Arrested at Nightclub

5/30/2019 1:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Buffalo Bills rookie LB Tyrel Dodson was pulled out of a nightclub and arrested Sunday after his GF told cops he roughed her up during a violent altercation hours earlier ... TMZ Sports has learned.

For the record, Dodson (an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M) DENIES the allegations -- and insinuated to police that HE was the real victim by showing cops a red mark on his face. 

Here's the deal according to police docs ... 20-year-old Dodson and his GF got into an argument on May 25 in Scottsdale, AZ after he allegedly vomited on the carpet inside her bedroom after drinking too much. 

Tyrel's GF alleges the 6' 2", 240-lb football player got physical with her when she confronted him about the vomit ... allegedly grabbing her "forcefully" and "shoving her against the wall."

Tyrel's GF says she slapped him in the face ... and says Dodson responded by slapping her back. 

She says she fled from the scene ... but when she returned, Tyrel was still there -- so she locked herself inside her bathroom and told him to leave the premises. 

That's when she says Tyrel busted through the door ... causing the door to smack her in the head, leaving her with a small welt. 

She says the argument then spilled out into the kitchen, where things escalated further ... with Dodson shoving her to the ground after a scuffle over her cell phone.

Dodson's GF eventually left the apartment ... but when she returned -- she says Tyrel had taken her keys, $500 from her purse and an additional $8,000 to $15,000 in cash from a safe under her bed.

When cops reached Tyrel by phone ... he denied ever getting physical with his GF -- stating the argument "was verbal only" -- and added he only took about $1,000 from her because it was "money they both shared."

Cops didn't appear to believe him -- 'cause they say they found probable cause to arrest him on several charges including domestic violence -- and when they found out later in the evening he was at Mint Nightclub, they went in to get him.

After Dodson was removed from the club, he again denied attacking his GF and showed cops a red mark on his face ... though he never outright accused her of assault. 

Tyrel was booked on three charges -- 1 domestic violence count, 1 charge of disorderly conduct and one charge of damage to property -- all misdemeanors.

Tyrel -- who played in 33 games for the Aggies in his three years at College Station -- was signed by the Bills as an undrafted free agent just a few weeks ago.

We reached out to the Bills and a team spokesperson tells us, "We are aware of the incident involving Tyrel Dodson last weekend. We have been looking further into the matter and will continue to gather information as the legal process continues."

Dodson is due in court later next month to face the charges.

Demian Bichir's Wife Stefanie Sherk Died by Suicide ... Battled Depression, Insomnia

5/30/2019 7:29 AM PDT

The wife of Oscar-nominated actor Demian Bichir was sleeping only 2 hours a night and detoxing off anxiety meds before she took her own life ... according to her autopsy report. 

Model Stefanie Sherk was discovered by her husband April 12 at the bottom of their pool in Sherman Oaks, CA with weights strapped to her back and ankles, and despite efforts to resuscitate her ... she never regained consciousness and died at the hospital 8 days later.

According to L.A. County Coroner ... Sherk was 2 days into detoxing from Xanax at the time of her death but was also suffering crippling insomnia due to her sleep aid, Lunesta, which had lost its efficacy.

The Coroner says she also had a history of depression and experienced "recent suicidal ideations." 

Sherk's depression got worse at the end of 2018 following the deaths of her grandmother and her dog. She reportedly called a friend just 9 days before her suicide and described how she wanted to kill herself ... but the friend talked her out of it and notified the family.

The Coroner's report ultimately revealed Sherk's cause of death was "the result of the effect of lack of oxygen, mainly on the brain, produced by a purposeful drowning episode."

Days after Sherk's death, Bichir wrote ... "It is with inconceivable pain that I announce that on April 20, 2019, our dearest Stefanie Sherk, my beloved and loving wife, passed away peacefully. It has been the saddest and toughest time of our lives and we don’t know how much time it will take for us to overcome this pain. Stefanie’s beautiful, angelical and talented presence will be immensely missed.”

Stefanie was 43.

NFL's Nick Foles Wife Suffers Miscarriage ... 'Traumatic Loss'

Breaking News

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Nick Foles is revealing why he's been MIA at team workouts this week -- saying his wife suffered a miscarriage in her 15th week of pregnancy and the family is devastated. 

Nick's wife, Tori (who was pregnant with their 2nd child), penned an emotional statement on social media explaining how she felt sick on Sunday morning after fighting some sort of "virus" ... but things escalated quickly. 

"I went into sudden labor and knew something was wrong," Tori says ... "Not long after we learned we had miscarried our baby boy."

"To fully labor and deliver and even see our baby boy was a pretty devastating process."

Tori says he later found out she had contracted an infection of pneumonia in her blood. 

On Wednesday, Tori said she's back home after being released from the hospital and she's continuing to recover "physically from the infection with antibiotics (already much better) as well as emotionally from this traumatic loss."

She added, "The emotions go back and forth from immense and overwhelming sadness, confusion and anger to a firm belief that God has this fully in his hands and will use this for good. We cannot always understand or explain, but we know that is true."

Nick also issued a statement saying, "Tori has written a beautiful heartfelt post explaining what we have gone through this last week. We are grateful for all the love, support and prayers."
