Lynne Spears Shops At Dollar General ... After Claims She Sells Britney's Belongings

Lynne Spears appears to be doing her shopping on a budget ... buying from Dollar General after claims she's been selling Britney's belongings to stay afloat financially.

Lynne was spotted wheeling a shopping cart filled with items out of the discount store in Britney's hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana earlier this week.

There's a lot being made about Lynne's finances these days, though she's strongly denied claims she's been hawking Britney's clothes, hats and shoes in a Kentwood consignment shop.

It's interesting to see Lynne doing some shopping at Dollar General, but it's worth noting she's also got a designer purse in the store's bright yellow shopping cart ... and eventually unloads her goods into a white Mercedes.


Earlier this month, the Daily Mail published an article with a family source claiming Lynne has spent the last 5 years selling Britney's clothes and accessories from tour performances, her personal wardrobe and appearances on TV and award shows.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Lynne vehemently denied the report on social media ... posting a picture with some of Britney's clothes and the caption, "I would never sell my daughter's things. Get your facts straight @dailymail."

As we reported ... in her new memoir, Britney accuses Lynne of trashing her collection of antique dolls and personal journals, with Lynne denying the allegations.

Lynne's got receipts for Britney's claims too ... again defending herself on social media and telling Britney she would never do what she's being accused of here.

NFL Star Von Miller Arrest Warrant Issued For Assaulting Pregnant Woman

TMZ Sports has learned an arrest warrant has been issued for NFL superstar Von Miller ... after he allegedly assaulted a pregnant woman.

According to a spokesperson for the Dallas Police Department ... the warrant stems from an incident involving Miller and a woman on Nov. 29 at around 11 AM.

Cops say they responded to a Dallas-area residence over "a major disturbance call" ... and officers were told there was "a verbal argument" between Miller and a woman that turned physical.

Cops say Miller left the scene before officers arrived -- and the woman "was treated for minor injuries," but was not taken to the hospital.

As of early Thursday morning, the 34-year-old Buffalo Bills pass rusher had not been jailed.

Miller's team released a statement on the matter, saying, "This morning, we were made aware of an incident involving Von Miller. We are in the process of gathering more information and will have no further comment at this point."

The NFL, meanwhile, said in a statement of its own, "We are aware of the matter and have been in contact with the club. We have no further comment at this time."

Miller, who's from DeSoto, Texas, is currently on a bye week. He last played for Buffalo on Sunday in Philadelphia, logging 21 snaps in an overtime loss to the Eagles.

Miller initially began his career in 2011 with the Broncos and put together a Hall of Fame resume for the Denver franchise -- but he was traded to the Rams during the 2021 season.

After helping L.A. win a Super Bowl that season, he moved on to Buffalo in 2022 ... and while his Bills career got off to a solid start, he's largely been ineffective since tearing his ACL on Thanksgiving last season.

In his career, Miller -- the Super Bowl 50 MVP -- has totaled 123.5 sacks in 169 games.

Harry and Meghan Piers Morgan Blows their Cover ... The 'Racist Royals' are King Charles and Kate


Piers Morgan spilled the Royal tea in a big way Wednesday night, ID'ing the senior royals who Meghan Markle and Prince Harry claimed made racist comments about the skin color of their unborn son, Archie.

As you know, a new book -- "Endgame" -- written by Omid Scobie, had a Dutch version which named the culprits. That version has been yanked from the shelves and online sales, but it got out. Everyone was afraid to mention names .... and then Piers came along.

On Piers' TalkTV/Fox Nation show "Piers Morgan Uncensored" Wednesday night, he said, "The royals who were named in this book are King Charles and Catherine, Princess of Wales."

Now Scobie says he never submitted a version of his book where specific names were mentioned. It doesn't answer a key question ... how does a book get translated into Dutch and names suddenly appear that were never in the English version?

Piers said he has his doubts ... "I don't believe any racist comments were ever made by any of the royal family, and until there is actual evidence of those comments being made, I will never believe it."


Harry and Meghan were coy with Oprah about which royal/royals worried that Archie's skin might be too dark, but lots of people began guessing the culprits were King Charles and Prince William.

It's interesting ... Charles has a fractured relationship with his son, which is better than the now non-existent relationship Harry has with William.

Buckingham Palace is pissed over the ongoing accusations, reportedly "considering all options."

Stay tuned ...

BEYONCÉ I'm Trying to Be White? Here's More of Me Platinum Blonde!!!

Beyoncé is responding to haters who think she's intentionally lightening her skin ... by keeping the spotlight on her blonde ambition for a night out with Jay-Z, Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill.

Bey's platinum locks were front and center as she and Jay left London's Oswald's Private Club -- but, her complexion was certainly darker than it was in the shots of her at last weekend's "Renaissance" movie premiere.

The famous foursome's power dinner came the night before the London premiere of "Renaissance," so we're guessing Tom and Henry are showing their support ... but ya gotta wonder who paid? The Carters ARE the billionaire couple.

Beyonce was definitely feeling her fit ... because she posted a fresh set of images, and the Beyhive rallied behind them, suggesting she shared the images, particularly the ones zoomed in on her face, as a direct response to all the online comments about her skin tone.

One fan commented on the new pics with ... "One thing about it my girl she never responds to the haters directly but it's ALWAYS going to be a way she clears without saying a WORD! #BrownSkinGirl."

B was criticized for her movie premiere appearance ... with many taking offense to her lightened locks and skin tone, and some even accusing her of bleaching her skin.

The backlash was so consuming that B's mother Tina Knowles, jumped to her defense ... denouncing the accusations as stupid, ignorant, self-hating, and racist.

Hall & Oates Oates 'Deeply Hurt' By Hall's Allegations ... I'm Not a Backstabber!!!

John Oates says he's gutted by his estranged musical partner's allegations ... that he tried to secretly sell his half of a Hall & Oates enterprise.

John filed a declaration in a Tennessee court, saying he's "deeply hurt" that Daryl Hall took a private dispute they were having and made it embarrassingly public.

As we reported, Hall has gone to court over what he claims was a move by Oates to sell off his share of "Whole Oats Enterprises," the company they formed to control some of the group's assets.

Hall claims Oates ambushed him by finding a buyer whom Hall does not want. Hall got a temporary restraining order, halting the sale until a judge could determine whether Oates had the right to make the deal.

In his declaration, Oates says, "Daryl has consistently and publicly been adamant about being perceived as an individual rather than as part of a duo or group."

Club Random with Bill Maher

It was clear last year when Hall appeared on Bill Maher's "Club Random" podcast, there was no love lost between the two.

Oates says he can't talk about the specifics, but acknowledges "Daryl and I have not seen eye to eye." Thing is ... he wants those peepers to be private eyes.

Oates insists he's trying to maintain the integrity of Hall & Oates, but he's having trouble because Hall will not work with him.

Stay tuned ...

Ari Lennox Smacked by Water Bottle ... Ready to Deck Fan!!!


Ari Lennox don't play ... that much is crystal clear, because she stopped her show and threatened to knock out a fan in L.A. after she got belted with a water bottle while performing!!!

The D.C.-born singer, who's been signed to J. Cole's Dreamville Records since 2015, was onstage opening up for Rod Wave’s "Nostalgia" tour when the water bottle whizzed in her direction and struck her in the arm.

An enraged Ari immediately addressed the Kia Forum crowd in hopes of seeking out the bottle-throwing bozo and told them don’t be fooled by the glitz and glamour … she’s a “real ass bitch” and she’ll “f*** them up!!!”

Ari appeared to have scoped the fan out and was MORE than willing to rearrange their face ... but her bodyguard wisely escorted her from the stage before the violence could erupt.


No word if the fan got removed from the venue but troublemakers have been out of pocket all year -- just ask Drake. He actually caught the book thrown at him during his "It's All a Blur" tour, but other artists such as Bebe Rexha haven't been as lucky.

The fan is probably lucky security held Ari back ... she was going to do much more damage than a water bottle!!!

Kanye West & Bianca Censori Show Up At Dubai Fashion Party ... Check Out Our Stuffed Animal


Kanye West and his wife, Bianca Censori, showed up at a recent event in Dubai ... but it was the couple's furry companion that stole the spotlight.

KW and BC breezed into a pop-up store to honor Jordanian-Romanian fashion designer Amina Muaddi --- and Bianca was carrying another noteworthy guest: her large, cuddly stuffed animal.

Bianca wore an oversized Russian-style shapka on her head while decked out in a tight-fitting mini dress. Kanye was dressed in an understated all-black ensemble topped off by a matching hood.

The two were in great spirits as they shook hands and talked with other people at the Tuesday night soiree. Check out this video showing Kanye working the room with Bianca, who is clutching her plush toy to her chest.

The duo appear to be going stronger than ever after reports surfaced last week that they were no longer together. Rumors circulated that Bianca's friends and family convinced her Kanye had brainwashed her into becoming a wife robot.

But Bianca seems happy with her current sitch with Kanye. They're definitely diggin' one another.

Kelly Clarkson Ex-Husband Overcharged Her in Booking Gigs ... Ordered to Return Millions

Kelly Clarkson continues her winning streak in her divorce from Brandon Blackstock ... this round a labor commissioner ruled Brandon had overcharged her by millions when he represented Kelly as her manager.

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, a California labor commissioner ruled Brandon crossed the line as a manager when he booked gigs and inked deals for Kelly on "The Voice," Norwegian Cruise Line, Wayfair, and as host of the Billboard Music Awards. Aside from a few exceptions, only agents -- not managers -- can lawfully secure roles for talent.

Apparently, Brandon collects fees for booking the gigs, and the labor commissioner ordered Brandon to fork over those commissions to his former wife ... totaling $2,641,374.

BTW ... fun fact -- Brandon scored $1.98 million for commissions from her role on "The Voice." By contrast, he only got $93.30 in commission for Kelly hosting the Billboard Music Awards.

Brandon says he'll appeal the ruling. One bright spot for him ... Kelly also wanted the money Brandon got for scoring her the gig on her talk show, "The Kelly Clarkson Show." The labor commissioner begged to differ, so Brandon keeps whatever he got on that one.

Kelly filed for divorce back in 2020 after 7 years of marriage. The divorce was final in March 2022. She got the hotly-contested Montana ranch in the settlement.

Kelly had to pay Brandon $1.3 million and is on the hook for $45k a month in child support for their 2 kids, ages 9 and 7. Brandon also gets $115,000 a month in spousal support, but that ends in January 2024.

Kelly, repped by her attorney Ed McPherson, got the family pets, multiple cars including a Ford Bronco, a Ford F-250, and a Porsche Cayenne, as well as a flight simulator.

Kristin Cavallari Tyler Cameron Is My Hottest Hookup Ever !!!

Let’s Be Honest with Kristin Cavallari

Kristin Cavallari has revealed her hottest hookup ever -- Tyler Cameron -- and she still seems incredibly smitten!

The former "Hills" star talked all about it on her Tuesday podcast of "Let's Be Honest," saying, "Tyler Cameron and believe it or not, you guys -- I know this is really freaking hard to believe -- he's hotter in person."

Kristin added, "It’s insane. It’s insane. So yeah, TC for you baby." Wow, should we start ringing the wedding bells?

Not so fast. Kristin also implied she had almost no chemistry with the ex-"Bachelorette" star, claiming she only connected with Tyler because of his stunning looks.

What's more, Kristin was seen locking lips with Tyler at a 2022 photo shoot for her Uncommon James jewelry line in Joshua Tree, California. Rumors started spreading that they were a couple, but Kristin quickly put out the fire.

In April 2022, Kristin went on "The Bellas Podcast" hosted by former WWE stars Nikki and Brie Bella, explaining that she hired Tyler for the shoot to get press.


She said, "Everyone's like, ‘Tell me everything.’ I’m like, ‘I think he’s great but … we are not dating.'" But, Kristin admitted Tyler was a good kisser.

Later the same year, the pair were spotted hanging out together at a New Year's Eve soiree. As you know, Kristin filed for divorce from Jay Cutler in 2020 and has been playing the field ever since. Tyler has dated Gigi Hadid and Paige Lorenze.

As if Tyler needs more cred, but here it is!

Taylor Swift said her goodbyes to boyfriend Travis Kelce in Kansas City Wednesday and flew over to London for the premiere of Beyoncé's new concert flick.

TS boarded a private jet at Kansas City Airport last night after spending some quality time with Travis and her new BFF Brittany Mahomes.

The pop star took off from the tarmac, traveling across the pond to Great Britain for tonight's screening of "Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé."

Taylor's returning the favor to Beyoncé for showing up to her "Eras" tour film premiere in L.A. last month.


Taylor is expected to touch down at London's Stansted Airport Thursday morning ... just hours before the star-studded event.

Meanwhile, Taylor's relationship with Travis is still flying high. The Grammy-winning singer and the Chiefs tight end spent a few days together at Travis' lavish KC home after Taylor wrapped up her concerts in Brazil.

They only went out to drive over to visit Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and his wife, Brittany, at their house nearby. As you know, Brittany and Taylor have become very close, cheering on the Chiefs from their VIP suite.

We covered it all on the latest episode of The TMZ Podcast, available on all podcast platforms.

Shane MacGowan The Pogues Singer Dead at 65

Shane MacGowan, founder and frontman for The Pogues, is dead ... according to his wife, Victoria Mary Clarke.

Victoria announced Shane's death early Thursday morning. Although she hasn't mentioned a cause of death, Shane had reportedly been recently diagnosed with encephalitis and discharged from a Dublin hospital.

Shane formed The Pogues in 1982, amid London's punk scene, with fellow members Peter "Spider" Stacy, Jem Finer and James Fearnley. The original band name was Pogue Mahone, a Celtic phrase that translates to "kiss my arse" -- as the name portends, they played Celtic folk music, but with a punk attitude.

The band first gained popularity opening for The Clash in 1984, and eventually worked with Elvis Costello ... who produced some of their early records. The Pogues' biggest mainstream success came with their hit, "Fairytale of New York" in 1987.

The Christmas-themed track has become a holiday staple -- especially in the UK -- so, there's something poetic about Shane passing at this time of year.

He was actually kicked out of the band in 1991, following a legendarily chaotic live performance at a festival in Japan -- and, after recording one more album, The Pogues broke up.

Shane eventually got the band back together for a successful reunion tour in 2001.

Victoria said of Shane, "I am blessed beyond words to have met him and to have loved him and to have been so endlessly and unconditionally loved by him.”

Shane was 65.


Jeremy Allen White Smoke Break w/ Rosalía in L.A. ... Still Going Strong, Eh???

Jeremy Allen White and Rosalía aren't putting dating rumors to rest -- in fact, they're adding fuel to the fire and lighting a match ... to spark up cigs, and more rumors, no doubt.

TMZ got these photos of "The Bear" actor and the Spanish singer hanging out Wednesday in WeHo ... where they were chopping it up in a parking lot, and enjoying a smoke break in each other's company.

It's kinda funny ... you could argue this scene here is life imitating art a bit -- namely, on Jeremy's end. His character from the TV show is constantly stepping out to inhale a cigarette amid the restaurant chaos ... and while this moment isn't nearly as dramatic, it does feel familiar.

Anyway, JAW and Rosalía ended up talking a bit more -- sans cancer sticks -- and ultimately departed with a nice big hug ... but no kiss, something we know Jeremy ain't shy to do when he's into a new boo.

Still, it's interesting to see them continue to hang amid last month's public farmer's market outing -- where Jeremy was walking around with a huge bouquet of flowers ... which may or may not have been for his new would-be significant other.

Folks thought there was something going on between them then ... and they're sure to keep on believing that after this latest rendezvous.

What adds an extra layer of intrigue here is the fact that Jeremy is still navigating a divorce from his wife, Addison Timlin ... with whom he shares 2 children.

The exes seem to be on good terms, 'cause they're constantly stepping out as a family ... so it would appear they're going about their uncoupling amicably.

Anyway, Jeremy certainly isn't scared to put his personal life on the front street, and with his growing success in the biz, he's only going to get more and more attention the bigger he gets.

The dude's IDGAF vibes are pretty palpable ... he's as down-to-earth as they come.

Ryan Shazier's Wife Accuses Former NFL Star Of Cheating ... Exposes Alleged Texts With Woman


4:46 PM PT -- Ryan Shazier tells TMZ ... "Michelle and I have been living apart and are currently separated. As we work through what comes next for our family, I ask for privacy and prayers."

Ryan Shazier is a "liar and a cheater" ... this according to his wife, who just put the former NFL linebacker on blast by sharing raunchy text messages she claims he sent to another woman.

Michelle Shazier -- who has been with Ryan well before his career-ending spinal cord injury in 2017 -- unleashed on her husband in a since-deleted Instagram post on Wednesday ... saying, "A person that loves his family … this is what they do to their family … the WIFE.. that has been there for him since day 1!"

Michelle -- a former college basketball player who has raised two boys with the Pro Bowler -- posted multiple text exchanges allegedly between Ryan and a woman named Marie ... and while they initially start off as casual flirting, things eventually got more intense.

In fact, in one screenshot, a text exchange shows the person Michelle claims is Ryan sending links to books titled "The Ultimate Guide To Anal Sex For Women" and "Blow By Blow: A Step-by-Step Guide On How To Give Blow Jobs So Explosive That He Will Be Willing To Do Anything For You."

"Infidelity at its finest!" Michelle continued in her post. "I can’t sit here and keep hiding anymore . You can have it. I deserve better. 🤍 This is Ryan… he’s a liar and a cheater!"

Ryan and Michelle got married back in May 2019. He has yet to address the allegations.

Farrah Abraham says her relationship with a new boyfriend she met via OnlyFans is legit and not an escort situation ... telling us there's nothing seedy going on and folks need to back off.

The former "Teen Mom" star tells TMZ ... she's serious about dating her new man and seeing where their relationship goes by keeping him out of the limelight, and he's not paying her for her companionship, as some folks online are claiming.

Farrah says her social media is being flooded with negative, hateful comments since posting a collage of photos and videos with her new BF from a Thanksgiving trip to Turks and Caicos.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Some folks are taking issue with Farrah leaving her teenage daughter behind to go on an overseas trip with a mystery man over the holidays ... threatening to call CPS on her.

But, Farrah says her daughter would never go on a couples birthday trip with her, and the kid always has a caretaker when she's out of town. In other words, no reason to call CPS. Farrah says her daughters safety is high priority and she abides by all laws as a responsible parent.


TMZ broke the story ... Farrah made her new BF sign an NDA after meeting him on OF and then matching on a dating app, as she tries to take extra steps to make sure he isn't using her for fame for online clout.

Farrah says her new boo had no issue signing the NDA ... and she clears the air on the nature of her relationship and claps back at her critics.

Dr. Drew On Israel-Hamas War Child Hostages Scarred for Life ... Conflict Hardest on Developing Brains


Dr. Drew Pinsky says children swept up in the war between Israel and Hamas are going to be dealing with the fallout for the rest of their lives, because it could very well rewire their brains.

The famous doc joined us for Thursday's "TMZ Live" to discuss the youngest hostages Hamas released this week to Israel. Although they seem okay, outwardly, Dr. Drew says, there's potential for tremendous internal damage involving the development of their brains.

As the trauma builds, Dr. Drew says most kids will start to shut down and dissociate ... and many will have their brains shattered and rewired, creating lasting psychological harm.

And, he adds this painful prognosis doesn't only apply to the hostages ... Drew says the ongoing conflict can have the same impact on children living in Gaza, surrounded by death and destruction.

Add in the fact some of these kids are coming off another traumatic experience during COVID shutdowns, and Dr. Drew explains why it's a toxic mix for youth.

He also warns the media attention the released hostages are getting can be problematic. While there's a natural desire to celebrate the young survivors ... he told us how having cameras and mics in their faces could make recovery more difficult for them.

Antonio Gates I Belong In HOF ... And Julius Peppers Does Too!!!


Antonio Gates says he feels like he belongs in the Hall of Fame ... and he tells TMZ Sports if and when he gets in, Julius Peppers should be there right alongside him!!

The two NFL legends were officially named semifinalists for the highest honor in professional football earlier this week ... and when we saw Gates out in LA on Tuesday, we had to get his thoughts on it all.

The former Chargers tight end said he was stoked for the recognition, calling it a "dream come true" -- before adding that he was pretty sure when the final cutdown comes, he'll make it.

"I feel like, mentally," he said, "I belong in there."

As for the rest of the 24 semifinalists, Gates said he could make a case for just about every player on the list ... though he specifically said Peppers definitely deserves the nod.

Some other names who will be considered for the class of 2024 include legends like Dwight Freeney, Andre Johnson and Devin Hester -- three guys Gates said should get long looks for the Hall's final cut next year too.

The list of 25 will be pared down to 15 finalists soon ... before the Class of 2024 is officially revealed at "NFL Honors" in February.

Good luck to everyone who made it this far!!
