Meghan Markle‘s celebrating the upcoming birth of her first child with Prince Harry … and she’s doing it on U.S. soil, baby!! Take that, UK.
We just got a shot of Meghan outside The Mark Hotel Tuesday afternoon in NYC. She held her baby shower there and, as you’d expect, she was flanked by tons of security as she got into a waiting SUV.
As you can see … Meghan’s doing the expectant mommy thing, cradling her baby bump with every step. The Duchess of Sussex is about 7 months pregnant, and she and Harry have been hinting the baby is due in April.
Meghan’s flying solo, sans Harry, for this trip. The baby shower could be the last time she sees her friends — at least stateside — before she gives birth.
Chris Brown is stepping out in public for the first time since being arrested for allegedly raping a woman in a Paris hotel — something he called total BS –.but today he’s spreading a message of love.
Brown was leaving the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Paris Wednesday — the same place where the alleged rape went down — and he had just a few simple words to share, “I love everybody.”
As we reported … Chris was arrested Monday night by French police on possible rape and narcotics charges. The alleged victim told Closer Magazine Brown brutally and violently assaulted her for 25-30 minutes in a dressing room after a night of partying.
Although prosecutors initially told us Chris would have to answer in court and possibly surrender his passport, he was released the same day of the arrest with no conditions. He still has his passport and is free to return to the U.S.
Sources familiar with the Parisian legal system tell us there are signs the case fell apart.
Brown’s attorney, Raphael Chiche, vowed Tuesday — Chris would file a defamation case against the woman.
Ex-Minnesota Vikings receiver Cayleb Jones just cut a deal in court in his domestic violence case — but he’s still facing serious jail time … TMZ Sports has learned.
The 25-year-old was facing 3 pretty serious charges — including felony theft by temporary control — after he allegedly beat the crap out of his girlfriend at a Minnesota hotel back in August.
Officials say the 6’3″, 209 pound WR roughed up his GF and when she tried to escape in an elevator to call 911 … Jones intercepted her, stole her phone and fled before cops arrived.
Cayleb was in court Tuesday to face the charges … but we’re told he cut a deal — and instead, only pled guilty to interference with an emergency call — a gross misdemeanor.
In exchange, we’re told his two other charges will be dismissed.
Cayleb — who’s already served 5 days of jail time — still faces up to a year in jail and a $ 3,000 fine when he returns to court for his sentencing hearing in April. It’s unlikely he’ll be ordered to serve more jail time unless the judge really wants to throw the book at him.
It’s been a rough year for the WR — as we previously reported, Cayleb tried to restrain his brother, Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones, after he allegedly tried to jump from a 30th story window in an L.A. building last spring.
Cayleb — who’s yet to play in an NFL game — was cut by the Vikings in September … and remains a free agent.
Megyn Kelly is keeping herself busy during her work furlough … because she just reported for jury duty in New York, the first time in years she’s had time to perform her civic duty.
The former NBC and Fox News host showed up Thursday morning at Manhattan Supreme Court, and she was ready for a long day … Megyn was packing a couple newspapers, two crossword books, and an iPad with “Crazy Rich Asians” on deck.
We’re guessing she’s been hitting the gym in her downtime, too … sounds like one heavy purse!
As you know … Megyn hasn’t been on the air since October, when she was ousted from NBC for her blackface remarks.
About to begin jury duty this morning. Slightly concerned about the effectiveness of the “I’m far too busy” excuse this time.
Justin and Hailey Bieber are tying the knot again — but this time, they’re doing it in the sunshine and inviting a bunch of their friends and family, including another very famous couple … TMZ has learned.
Sources familiar with the planning tell us J.B. and H.B.’s wedding is taking place during the weekend of March 1 — which also happens to be Justin’s 25th birthday. This ain’t no coincidence — we’re told Justin wanted to be a “married” man by his next bday.
Our sources say the 2nd round of nuptials are taking place somewhere in L.A. While the Biebers’ families are primarily located in the East Coast and Canada — where they initially wanted to have the wedding — they ultimately changed their minds because the weather sucks.
So wedding #2 has moved out West, and it will be a religious affair since #1 was not performed in the eyes of God.
“Love & Hip Hop Miami” star Amara La Negra tried to compose herself before addressing allegations against R. Kelly … and then she ferociously unleashed.
The up-and-coming musical artist was leaving iHeartRadio in Atlanta Friday when we asked about the drumbeat to prosecute Kelly in the wake of Lifetime’s docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly.”
Amara scoffs, saying there was plenty of proof to lock Kelly up years ago … when he was accused of making a sex tape with an underage girl. Kelly was acquitted of the child pornography charges in 2008, but clearly … Amara thinks there was more than enough smoke.
The ‘L&HH’ star is incredulous that Kelly would dare go out partying at the club for his birthday. She also slammed the folks who were there supporting him.
Daz Dillinger has been indicted on 2 felony drug charges for the marijuana bust that went down at his Georgia home … TMZ has learned.
We’re told Tha Dogg Pound rapper was indicted back in December for possessing over an ounce of weed and also liquid THC. Both charges are felonies, and Daz is now facing as much as 25 years, if he’s convicted.
Daz was originally facing 13 felony drug charges after cops say they found 117 grams of ganja, including in several cigarillo packets and a green mason jar, and a bunch of THC oil during the September bust at his home in Powder Springs — about 20 miles outside Atlanta.
We’re told prosecutors decided to pursue just the 2 charges, instead of 13.
LeBron James just settled the GOAT debate, at least the way he sees it … claiming the crown for himself thanks to the Cavaliers win against the Golden State Warriors for the 2016 NBA Championship.
James was chatting with a couple buddies on “More Than An Athlete” Sunday when the GS series came up. Without hesitation, LeBron says he knew winning that series made him the greatest player of all time.
