Priyanka Chopra & Sophie Turner Sisters-in-Law's Night Out ... Without Jonas Bros.

1/23/2019 7:07 AM PST

Priyanka Chopra and Sophie Turner were just a couple of future sisters-in-law about town this week ... and apparently, Tuesdays are just for the girls. 

PC and ST hit up Craig's in WeHo together, where they were swarmed by paps, all of whom were eager to snap a shot and fire off a question.

Gotta say, we haven't seen a reaction like this to a celeb pairing out in Hollywood in quite a while. It just goes to show how much star power these two have racked up since their engagements and wedding(s) thus far to Nick and Joe Jonas over the past year or so.

Speaking of nuptials ... Joe and Sophie are reportedly set to wed sometime this year, as 'Save the Date' boxes have already been sent out to potential guests. Nick and Priyanka already got that part done -- they did it to death, in fact, with 3 ceremonies.

If Sophie and Priyanka's family power outing is any indication of what's to come ... we say bring on another one sooner rather than later. 

Cardi B No Place Like Home ... Wants Back with Offset

1/22/2019 7:31 AM PST

Cardi B wants to return to the way things were ... before her split with Offset.

The rapper shared a screenshot Tuesday morning of a FaceTime chat with her husband -- who she split with in December -- and their daughter, Kulture. She captioned it ... "I wanna go home."

As you know, Offset's been very public about his desire to reconcile with Cardi, but she hasn't been as forthcoming ... other than announcing how much she misses his penis. It seems she's longing for some family time with him now, though.

Of course, the couple have been together since their split -- including a jet ski-riding vacation in Puerto Rico -- and we broke the story ... they were working on fixing their marriage in 2019, with Offset vowing to change his ways and be faithful and honest with her.

Still, Cardi hadn't given any clear indicators she was fully on board with the plan ... until now.

Kendall Jenner Sits with Ben Simmons' Mom ... at 76ers Game

1/22/2019 6:31 AM PST
Breaking News

Seems Ben Simmons is getting more serious about Kendall Jenner -- because he sat his girlfriend with his MOTHER at the 76ers game on Monday! 

Check out Kendall rubbing elbows with Julie Simmons at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia -- where Ben and the 76ers beat up on the Houston Rockets in a 121 to 93 victory. 

Ben's stat line wasn't spectacular -- only 9 points, 6 assists and 6 rebounds. And, he only hit 3 of 12 shots, which is bad for him (he usually shoots well over 50%). 

But, who cares about individual stats when your team wins, right? 

Plus, the most important question ... did Kendall and Mom get along?! Pretty well actually. The two were seen smiling and chatting. Good times. 

It's not the first time they've kicked it together -- Kendall and Julie hung out at a game back in November 2018 and got along great then too. 

Ben and Kendall have been dating on and off since May 2018. The next big question ... when does Julie get to come to L.A. to meet the rest of the Kardashians??

Stay tuned! 

Dog the Bounty Hunter Chemotherapy Won't Stop Beth From Filming New Show

1/22/2019 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife, Beth Chapman, aren't letting her cancer diagnosis keep them from making a living, or from being in front of the camera ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the couple tell us Dog and Beth are committed to a recently inked deal with the TV network WGN America for a new reality series called "Dog's Most Wanted" -- where they'll track down some of the country's most dangerous fugitives. 

And, by committed ... we mean they're moving forward with filming, even as Beth continues to receive chemotherapy for her throat cancer. In fact, we're told Beth will be front and center for the show ... and that her chemo will likely be a storyline.

Our sources say, if they do choose to focus on Beth's cancer, it will capture her diagnosis and chronicle her journey. Production starts within a month.

TMZ broke the stories ... Beth started undergoing chemo in early January after doctors discovered her cancer had returned during emergency throat surgery in November.

She, Dog and the rest of their family have been laying low in Colorado when she's not in L.A. for treatment.

Dog the Bounty Hunter Wife Beth Has Started Treatment ... For Throat Cancer

1/21/2019 10:18 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dog the Bounty Hunter's wife, Beth Chapman, has started treatment to help eradicate throat cancer recently rediscovered by doctors ... and so far, so good, TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Beth tell us she's going through chemotherapy, which we're told started a couple weeks ago. Our sources say she and Dog have been traveling to L.A. to receive the treatments, and that she's been spending the majority of her time at their family home in Colorado in the meantime.

We're told the level of cancer remains the same -- very serious. The good news ... our sources say while the chemo has been tough, Beth is responding well and is in good spirits. 

TMZ broke the story ... doctors found Beth's cancer had returned during an emergency surgery two months ago to clear a blockage in her throat that made it difficult for her to breathe. She beat the same cancer in 2017, but sadly it's back.

We got Dog out in Los Angeles shortly after the emergency surgery who let everyone know just how serious Beth's condition was ... and he thanked fans for their support. 

Her family had planned to stay in Colorado as they considered their next steps. 

R. Kelly Ex-Wife Says He was Abusive ... Women's Stories Ring True

1/21/2019 6:42 AM PST

R. Kelly's ex-wife says the stories on "Surviving R. Kelly" rang true to her because of what she says she went through with the singer -- including alleged abuse in all forms. 

Andrea Kelly went on "Good Morning Britain" after appearing on Lifetime's docuseries, and she told hosts Piers Morgan and Susana Reid that R. Kelly abused her verbally, emotionally, physically, sexually ... and, as of late she claims, financially as well by cutting off child support.

Morgan asks her point blank if she believes the women and believes he's a serial abuser -- to which Andrea says she believes R. Kelly is an abuser ... but refuses to either confirm or deny the women's claims as she didn't experience them herself. 

The 'GMB' hosts also ask R. Kelly's daughter, Joann, how she feels about her dad ... and she says she's torn because there's still love there on her end. 

Definitely a more toned down take than when she called him a "monster" on social media, but it's clear the family is going through a hard time in the midst of the scandal.

Blac Chyna Cops Called to Home ... After Claim She Was Drunk & Neglecting Dream

1/20/2019 9:05 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna had the LAPD at her home after a call came in alleging Chyna was intoxicated and neglecting her child.

Law enforcement sources tell us an anonymous person called in Sunday night and stated Chyna was drunk at her home. The caller claimed Chyna was in such bad shape, she couldn't properly care for her daughter, Dream Kardashian

Cops went to Chyna's house and determined everything was fine, nobody was drunk, and Dream was being properly cared for. There was also a nanny at the home.

Sources close to the situation tell us earlier in the night, Chyna got in a fight with a member of her glam team and the incident may have triggered the call to cops.

As we reported -- Chyna allegedly threw a drink at 'Love & Hip Hop' star Alexis Skyy last week -- in response to Skyy hanging out with Rob Kardashian. Rob posted a video of Skyy at his home just a couple days later.

We reached out to a rep for Chyna ... so far, no word back.  

Oldest Living Man Dead at 113

1/20/2019 7:31 AM PST

The oldest living man died peacefully Sunday morning in his home ... at 113 years old.

Masazo Nonaka was born in 1905. To put this in context, it's when Albert Einstein unveiled to the world his theory of relativity.

Speaking of relativity ... Nonaka was relatively independent. He used a wheelchair to get around and enjoyed reading newspapers and venturing out to a nearby spring bath once a week. He also loved eating sweets at the end of a meal.

His granddaughter said, "We feel shocked at the loss of this big figure. He was, as usual yesterday and passed away without causing our family any fuss at all."

Nonaka doesn't hold the Guinness World Record of all time ... the oldest living man was also from Japan and died in 2013 at 116 years old.

The oldest living woman was from France and died in 1997 at 122. 

RIP

Alabama's Quinnen Williams My First NFL Paycheck?? Here's What I'll Buy

1/20/2019 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Quinnen Williams is about to make his grandma VERY happy ... 'cause the Alabama superstar says with his first NFL paycheck -- a gift for grams is on the way!!!

"I think I'm going to buy my grandma a car," the DT tells TMZ Sports.

Quinnen's projected to be the No. 2 overall pick in April's NFL Draft ... which means Grandma's getting a DOPE new whip -- 'cause his first contract is expected to be around $31 MILLION.

But ... Quinnen says a car might not be the only gift he gets for her when that signing bonus starts rolling in -- he says he's thinking of swaggin' her out with some ice too!!

"She don't really wear jewelry, so I'll buy her jewelry."

Seems Grandma Williams should be proud ... Quinnen says he's normally a tightwad with his cash -- but looks like G-ma is just that special.

We also asked Williams about his ex-teammate, Jalen Hurts, transferring from the Tide ... and Q tells us why he wishes the QB the best.

Quinnen also says Tide fans need to lay off Drake for his alleged National Championship curse -- saying it's actually one of his dreams to meet the rapper in person!!

Solange Bey's Sis Ready to Film in Houston ... Another Director Credit?

1/19/2019 5:22 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Solange Knowles looks like she's getting just as comfortable behind a camera as she already is behind a microphone -- 'cause she was all set to film something in her hometown.

Beyonce's younger sister popped up in Houston Saturday with a whole film crew behind her ... and a camera in hand. Eyewitnesses tell us she made an appearance at the SHAPE Community Center off of Almeda Rd. and Alabama St., where we're told she was chatting up folks inside and discussing different shots she wanted to get. 

One eyewitness told us it appeared she was at the helm of either a movie or documentary of some sort ... and was trying to keep it low key.

Solange hasn't announced any new film projects as of late, and nothing official seems to be in production under her IMDb page either. That doesn't mean something isn't in the works though. And besides, she's already got a couple visual projects under her belt.

She put out a behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of her 2016 album, "A Seat at the Table," and also directed SZA's 2017 music video for "The Weekend."

While she hasn't put out much new music since her Grammy-winning record, she has been busy heading up art pieces in L.A. ... and teasing us with a follow-up album that has yet to be released.

We'll be on the lookout for a new Solange movie in the meantime ... if this is any indication. 

Russell Wilson Seems to Respond to Future's Diss ... Here's 'All That Matters'

1/19/2019 4:29 PM PST

Russell Wilson appears to be responding to Future calling him a whipped man by taking the high road ... or issuing a low blow, depending on how you look at it.

The Seahawks quarterback posted a photo Saturday that might very well be in direct response to an interview Future did on Friday, where he said Russ was "not being a man" by allowing Ciara to trash talk her ex-hubby on social media and in public. 

There's a couple different ways to interpret Russ's post -- but regardless, it'd be pretty hard not to call it a clap back. The pic shows Future Jr. --who's Future's biological son -- nuzzling noses with his half-sister, Sienna -- who's Ciara and Russell's biological daughter.

Russ captioned the post, "All that matters. #Love."

All that matters. #Love

A post shared by Russell Wilson (@dangerusswilson) on

While you could argue this is an integrity move on RW's part, you could also say he's strategically using Future's own flesh and blood against his pops in a petty feud ... which is eyebrow-raising at best. Both arguments would be valid on the face of this. 

As you know ... Ciara and Future are in the middle of an ongoing custody battle, for which Ciara now wants a mediator to intervene so a travel schedule can get hashed out for Future Jr. She's claimed in court docs that Future has allegedly broken scheduled visits and hands off the kid to family members instead of spending personal time with him. 

For the record, Ciara hasn't said any of this over social media ... she did it in public docs.

Chris Pratt My Fiancee's the Greatest ... Katherine Braves LAX!!!

1/18/2019 8:52 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger will be together forever -- it's an absolute lock, and we know this because she did something for him early Friday morning ... that almost NO one in L.A. does.

Ya probably wouldn't believe this if we didn't get it on video, but here it is -- Katherine behind the wheel at 7 AM, driving her fiance and dropping him off at LAX!! If you live in L.A., or even if you've flown here, you know the airport is an absolute nightmare.

Kat stayed in the car as we congratulated Chris on their engagement, and chatted about a possible best man for their wedding. You gotta see him, because the smile on Chris' face screams one thing: My girl will do ANYTHING for me.

We got even more proof they're rock solid on Thursday night ... as the couple did dinner with Katherine's mom and brother -- Maria Shriver and Chris Schwarzenegger -- and Pratt's son, Jack

The goodbye scene outside the Smoke House Restaurant in Burbank was straight out of a Hallmark card. Jack had big hugs for Katherine's bro and also for Nana Maria.

Super sweet ... but still pales in comparison to the scene at LAX.

Chris, you got a real one. And Katherine, thanks for making the rest of us schlubs look bad.

Morgan Freeman Granddaughter's Killer Gets 20 Years

1/17/2019 1:42 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The man convicted of killing Morgan Freeman's step-granddaughter is going away for 20 years ... TMZ has learned.

E'Dena Hines' killer, Lamar Davenport, was sentenced Thursday in NYC ... according to Manhattan D.A. Cyrus R. Vance, Jr.

Davenport was convicted of manslaughter last May. As we reported, he killed Hines -- who was his girlfriend at the time -- in August 2015 outside of their NYC apartment. Witnesses said he repeatedly stabbed her as he screamed about religion.

Davenport was acquitted of second-degree murder after his lawyer argued he was messed up on PCP when he attacked E'Dena. However, a judge subsequently found him guilty of first-degree manslaughter.

After he's released from prison, Davenport will be placed under post-release supervision for 5 years.

E'Dena was 33.
