Stevie J & Faith Evans Notorious B.I.G. Would Say No Biggie About Us Getting Married

11/20/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

If Notorious B.I.G. were alive today, Stevie J says he wouldn't be sweating what Biggie might think about Stevie marrying Faith Evans.

Stevie and Faith sat down with Raquel Harper for her new show, "Raq Rants" on BET, and she straight-up asked Stevie if Biggie would be cool with their marriage. Remember, B.I.G. and Faith got married in August 1994. They had one kid, Christopher Jordan Wallace Jr.

Back in the day, Stevie -- who married Faith earlier this summer -- was not only one of Biggie's producers but also a friend. How close? Stevie is godfather to Biggie and Faith's son. The fact he's now C.J.'s stepfather, too, isn't awkward at all ... according to Faith and Stevie.

Stevie says plenty of time has passed -- and Raquel even raised the fact Faith also had a decade-plus long marriage in between Biggie and Stevie. Watch, that got Stevie riled up.

"Raq Rants" airs Tuesday on BET at 11 PM. On the West Coast, if you have Dish or Direct TV, it's on at 8 PM. 

Cardi B Just Bought My Momma a House ... It Cost More than $600k!!!

11/19/2018 5:51 PM PST

Cardi B just bought her mom a house in New York, and the announcement came with a pretty revealing financial nugget about just how far CB has come in a year.

The "Be Careful" rapper posted a video on Instagram Monday showing herself doing a walk-through of a beautiful home Cardi says she purchased for her mother. It's a two-story house, with a built-in gym and a pretty sweet basement ... fireplace included. 

Cardi says she was thirsty to buy her mom a crib last year, but could only afford a $600k house ... which she says would've looked like "s***" for New York standards. So, she saved up, worked hard and eventually was able to afford the dream home she wanted for her mama bear. 

No word from Cardi on how much she dropped for the pad, but we're guessing it's well into the millions based on what we're seeing here. Congrats!

Tom Brady I Probably Won't Do 'SNL' Again ... Here's Why

11/19/2018 2:57 PM PST
Breaking News

Tom Brady ain't going to be reprising his role as the terrible throwing dude at a carnival anytime soon -- the Pats QB says his career as a "Saturday Night Live" host is likely over. 

And why? He's too damn busy

"I'm basically on a reality TV show every Sunday afternoon for 3 hours so I feel like I'm on TV enough in the Fall and Winter."

The GOAT appeared on WEEI's "Mut & Callahan" on Monday and was asked about life outside of football -- particularly if he'd ever return to 30 Rock like he did back in 2005 when he famously played "Alan" ... a guy with an arm like Nathan Peterman

TB12 says he loves the show ... but it's too big of a commitment and he'd rather be hanging out with Gisele and the kids. 

"It's hard for my family to give that up," Brady says.

"It's hard to say, 'All right guys, well, I'm going to go off and do another week of something that I've really done before.'"

ICYMI ... the carnival sketch was Brady's best work -- but he also donned a sultan outfit and played the manager of "Falafel City" ... and had a sketch where he joked about his rivalry with Peyton Manning and other QBs.

Good times.

Kim Porter Diddy Planning Elaborate Funeral ... Casket in Horse-Drawn Carriage

11/19/2018 2:08 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Porter will be laid to rest in the same place she was raised ... and Diddy is making sure the ceremony is befitting the woman he says was more than a soulmate. 

Sources close to Diddy tell us Kim's funeral will be held Saturday in Columbus, Georgia. Porter grew up in Columbus, and graduated from Columbus High in 1988. It's also the same place her mom, Sarah, was buried in 2014.

Our sources say Friday night, Kim's friends and family will gather in town for a dinner. The funeral will be held the following day and the family is currently planning some event for Sunday.

As for the funeral ... we're told Diddy wants an extravagant ceremony. Our sources say he's talking about Kim's casket will travel by carriage, pulled by horses. 

Celebrity Pastor T.D. Jakes will conduct the service.

Diddy held a memorial for Kim Sunday night at his home in Bel Air, where nearly 100 people attended and shared memories of Porter -- celebs like French Montana and Mary J. Blige and Pharrell.

Earlier Sunday, Diddy broke his silence on her death, saying, "For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby."

Diddy continued ... "I miss you so much. Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship. We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER SHIT!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love."

TMZ broke the story ... Porter was found dead in her L.A. home Thursday. Sources close told us she recently fell ill with the flu and complained she wasn't feeling well Wednesday night before she went to bed. Family members tried waking her Thursday, to no avail. She was pronounced dead at her home.

It's unclear if the flu was an underlying cause of death. Kim had traveled to Africa shortly before her death and authorities are looking into the possibility she contracted something there.

The cause of death should be known in 4 to 6 weeks after toxicology results are in.  

Kim was 47.

Stan Lee Bill Maher is 'Disgusting' ... Ripped by Stan's Co. for Trump Remark

11/19/2018 2:28 PM PST

Bill Maher just got a famous "Spider-Man" quote dropped on his head after he attacked Spidey's creator, Stan Lee ... accusing him of making Americans so dumb they elected Donald Trump

Stan Lee's company, POW! Entertainment, responded to Maher's blog about the late, great Marvel honcho ... saying Bill's opinion "that Stan merely inspired people to 'watch a movie' is in our opinion frankly disgusting."

Stan's team added, "Countless people can attest to how Stan inspired them to read, taught them that the world is not made up of absolutes, that heroes can have flaws and even villains can show humanity within their souls."

And, their coup de grace ... "We will rely on another of Stan’s lessons to remind you that you have a powerful platform, so please remember: 'With great power there must also come -- great responsibility!'"

As we told you, Bill claimed Stan's loyal fans "pretended comic books were actually sophisticated literature" ... and said Trump "could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important."

11/19/2018 12:26 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Think Charlotte Flair was excited after beating up Ronda Rousey at "Survivor Series"?!!

Check out this footage of the WWE superstar going crazy in the car with her dad, Ric Flair, in the moments after the match at Staples Center in L.A. 

You can hear the "WOOOs" from excited fans as they took off to continue the celebration. 

Yeah, Charlotte was technically disqualified and lost the match -- but she beat the dog snot out of Rousey, and even smashed her with a kendo stick in the center of the ring. At one point, she threw Ronda into a steel chair ... and even stomped her out. Good times! 

Check out Ronda's face -- looks like she took some real damage ... but the former UFC champ ain't sitting around licking her wounds. 

Ronda has vowed to be at "Raw" on Monday night -- saying, "No one can stop me." Should be fun. 

Charlotte wasn't even originally scheduled to face Ronda at the event -- and only stepped in after "Smackdown" women's champ Becky Lynch suffered a broken face last week.

Diddy hosted a private memorial to honor Kim Porter -- the mother of 3 of his children -- and the event was filled with friends, family and stories about Kim's life.

More than a hundred people came to Diddy's Bel-Air home Sunday to remember Kim. The house was filled with photos of Porter and the family. A candlelit walkway lined the entrance as guests arrived.

French Montana, Mary J. Blige and Pharrell were among the guests. 

There were heaters in the back for comfort ... it's getting cooler in SoCal.

TMZ broke the story ... Kim was found dead in her Toluca Lake home on Thursday. The 47-year-old mother of 4 had recently fallen ill with the flu, and complained she wasn't feeling well before going to bed Wednesday night.

Kanye & North West Daddy & Me Date Comes w/ Views ... & Brand New Yeezy Shoes!!

11/19/2018 7:46 AM PST

Kanye West's daughter, North, had the best seat in the house for their daddy-and-me date ... on top of Ye's shoulders. Good thing he brought comfy shoes.

North and her pops hit up the California Science Center in L.A. Sunday. Lots of cool things to see there -- like the Space Shuttle Endeavour -- and it's an outing that requires lots of walking. So, it's interesting Kanye chose this day to bust out his yet-to-be-released YEEZY Boost 700 VX.

Kinda hard to miss Ye make an entrance ... especially when he's wearing these fluorescent green Yeezy samples down low, and his adorable daughter on his shoulders.

He could use a fun day of daddy duty.

As we reported, the Woolsey fire crept right up to Kim and Kanye's property, and only a team of private firefighters saved them from catastrophe. Ye was also at the Bev Hills mansion when gunfire erupted on the set of his music video with Tekashi69.

Kanye's visit to the Science Center came just a couple days after he donated $150k to the family of a Chicago security guard killed by cops moments after he subdued a gunman.

Diddy Breaks Silence on Kim Porter ... Quincy Does As Well

11/19/2018 6:01 AM PST
Exclusive Video

11/19 -- Diddy continued his tribute to Kim with a slideshow of the 2 of them and their kids, writing, "I'll raise our family just like you taught me to. Love you forever!!!"

2:12 PM PT -- Kim's son, Quincy, just posted a message about his late mother, saying ... "I am broken...& the only thing that makes sense right now is that you were way too good for this silly world we live in. I love you so much MOMMY. Please give Mee-Maw the biggest hug and kiss for me."

Quincy is Kim's son from her relationship with Al B. Sure. Diddy took him in as his own at a young age. He's the first child of Kim's to address her death.

Diddy just addressed the tragic death of Kim Porter for the first time with a touching video and message about the mother of his children ... this almost immediately after he took an incredibly solemn-looking walk in public.

The Bad Boy honcho posted the tribute Sunday on Instagram, which shows him and Kim doing a maternity photo shoot with Essence magazine in December 2006 ... as he cradles a then-pregnant Kim, and they share kisses between shots. 

He captioned the video with a somber message that read ... "For the last three days I’ve been trying to wake up out of this nightmare. But I haven’t. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you baby."

Diddy continued ... "I miss you so much. Today I’m going to pay tribute to you, I’m going to try and find the words to explain our unexplainable relationship. We were more than best friends, we were more than soulmates. WE WERE SOME OTHER SHIT!! And I miss you so much. Super Black Love."

His tribute came after paps caught him taking a stroll through Westwood Village, where he was wearing his heartbreak on his face. Sad is an understatement ... Diddy looks absolutely devastated here.

We broke the story ... Kim was found dead at her home Thursday from complications stemming from either pneumonia or the flu. She birthed 3 of Diddy's children -- D'Lila, Jessie James and Christian. She was pregnant with D'Lila and Jessie during this shoot.

Kevin Hart & Torrei Hart Hendrix's Fortnite-Themed Party ... For 11th Birthday

11/18/2018 2:30 PM PST
Exclusive Details

The Harts pulled out all the stops for their son's 11th birthday -- 'cause Kevin and his ex-wife, Torrei, threw the kid a SICK party that was worthy of pretty much all the Fortnite dances.

Hendrix Hart was treated to a full-blown Fortnite party Saturday to celebrate the big 1-1, which his folks aptly called "Hartnite Birthday Royale." They might as well have been in the digital fray themselves because Kevin's studio near L.A. got fully decked out to reflect the game.

We're told Torrei was behind a majority of the planning for the shindig, and that she used bDASHd Events to bring the place to life ... or "heals," if that's more your speed. Torrei's brand manager, KD McNair, tells us Kevin was super impressed with the set-up ... and the whole fam had a great time together -- including their daughter, Heaven, and his current wife, Eniko.

Kevin and Torrei are no strangers to epic birthday parties for their kids. They did a video game blowout a couple years back for Hendrix, and a  "Black Panther"-themed bash last year for Heaven.

Repeat after us, kids ... THANK YOU, MOM AND DAD.

Travis Scott Shout-Out to My 'Wife' Kylie ... Day Before Mayor Declares 'Astroworld Day'

11/18/2018 2:42 PM PST

2:33 PM PT -- The Mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, just declared November 18 as "Astroworld Day" in an official proclamation to honor Travis and what he contributes to the city's arts, community, and in celebration of his latest album. 

Mayor Turner held a ceremony Sunday at City Hall to make the announcement, and Trav himself took to the podium to reminisce on the real Astroworld, and to thank his hometown while encouraging it to embrace the arts as a foundational pillar for the youth. 

Needless to say, Astroworld Fest was a success.

Travis Scott is at the top of his game, kinda like Justin Bieber. Is he also secretly married, like Justin Bieber?

Travis gave a shout out to Kylie Jenner in Houston Saturday night during his Astroworld Fest concert, and he referred to her as "my beautiful wife." That doesn't necessarily mean they're hitched, but then again it doesn't mean they're not.

Kylie and 9-month-old Stormi joined thousands at the Astroworld Amusement Park for Travis' set.  

Check out the crowd ... far as the eye can see.

Kylie also posted pictures of Travis and Stormi on Instagram Saturday night with the caption, "only the people around you really know how hard you work. i love to watch you make all your dreams come true."

He commented back, "I love u wifey."

Casey Anthony feels a connection to, of all people, United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ... seriously.

Anthony picked up a few things at a Dollar Tree Saturday in West Palm Beach, Florida. Check out her T -- a pic of RGB with the words, "Fight for the things you care about." She's been living in South Florida for years. Her life seems lowkey and pretty normal. 

It's been just over 7 years since Anthony was acquitted in the death of her daughter, Caylee.

Chris Cornell Son Stars in Emotional Tribute Video

11/18/2018 7:33 AM PST

Chris Cornell's son stepped into his late father's shoes in the emotional new music video for "When Bad Does Good," the posthumous title track off the newly released box set that spans Chris's entire career.

Christopher Cornell, Chris's son, plays a paperboy on his route in Seattle, a job his father once held. Along his route, he passes different locations associated with his father's career including the iconic Sub Pop Records, Soundgarden's early record label. Famous lyrics from Chris are also on display throughout the city. 

Christopher Cornell says, “For me this video represents my dad and all the art he created throughout his life and what his music meant then and what it means now, not just to me and my family but the city of Seattle and all of his fans.”

Vicky Cornell is currently suing Chris's doctor for malpractice, claiming he supplied Chris with the drugs that lead to his suicide back in May while knowing that Chris was an addiction-prone individual.
