Kanye and Saint West Board Private Jet in Wyoming, Possible Family Vacay

We know the plane’s taken off, but no word on where it’s heading. which left her in tears. this is some long overdue face time between Kanye and his family. jetting off somewhere with at least one member of his brood — and possibly the whole fam — for a last-minute trip. Seems unlikely Kim would put 4-year-old Saint on a PJ by himself to visit Dad. So, if this is a full family getaway it’s the most positive sign we’ve seen in several weeks. Wherever the jet’s going … so it’s quite possible she and the other kids were already on board when these pics were taken. She went out there to see him last week and had a very emotional conversation in the car … Since then, hard to say where things stand. No sign of Kim Kardashian or any of the other kids, but we know the jet took off from L.A. Other than Kim’s visit last week, he’s been without them while at the ranch working on his new album and his Presidential campaign. Ye was at a landing strip Sunday in Cody, WY — where he and Saint were both seen getting inside the same private jet, with what appears to be security in tow. 8/2/2020 12:26 PM PT

Tekashi 6ix9ine Releases New Video Upon Release, No Major Legal Issues

It’s no surprise … Also, dude didn’t need a permit for the way he was filming … Most people thought he’d go into witness protection, but he’s shunned that, and the music video is evidence … it doesn’t sound like any criminal charges would stick to him from this. Anyway, here’s the first of what we’re sure will be many new videos and songs to come now that the boy is out and about. The cars are crazy — 2 colorful Lambos, an orange McLaren, a yellow Dodge Charger and a Benz. which was basically guerrilla-style. otherwise, cops would have shut it down. alongside some super wild rides. There’s a part where they’re on the bridge on top of the cars, seemingly driving recklessly … which has caught the attention of NYPD. Be easy out there, 6ix9ine. It’s not a bad song either … 8/2/2020 1:16 PM PT

1:14 PM PT — Welp, that was fast. So, no harm no foul, really, legally speaking. he’s not hiding from anyone. a few security guards were patrolling the area, along with a massive entourage. It’s pretty clear they had permits to shoot the video … Tekashi 6ix9ine is fully free, having just completed house arrest, and he’s already out shooting a music video. Originally published — 7:27 AM PT Now, if you watch it … Law enforcement sources tell us they’re alarmed at the behavior and could potentially summons him for violating basic traffic laws, but we’re also told … We got this vid of Tekashi out in Brooklyn Sunday, bright and early (7:30 AM) …. Security was blocking several streets, stopping drivers from coming through. as for the production value, we’ll let you judge. you’ll see that the dude and his posse are on the move and kinda all over the city — or at least all around that borough. The video Tekashi was filming JUST THIS MORNING is already up out in the ether — as in, it’s up on YouTube mere hours after shooting it. The song’s called “PUNANI” and it features T69 and a bunch of his on-set buddies cruising around Brooklyn in a crap ton of Lambos and SUVs — flashing cash, showing off hot girls, the usual really. Tekashi, who was released from house arrest Saturday, is on 5 years supervised probation.

1:35 PM PT — Yoenis Cespedes is alive and well … Originally published — 11:06 AM PT like YS overslept his alarm — but obviously, there are much more serious concerns at this point. 34-year-old Cespedes is a 2x All-Star and one of the most important players on the Mets. Weird … The Mets issued a statement saying … Cespedes made the road trip to Atlanta and played Saturday. The whole situation is bizarre … In other words, they’re concerned he may have gone missing. but glad he’s okay. But, sometime between the end of Saturday’s game and Sunday morning, he decided to pull the plug on the 2020 season — and didn’t inform any of his bosses?? The Mets are currently playing the Braves in Atlanta. “As of game time, Yoenis Céspedes has not reported to the ballpark today. He did not reach out to management for an explanation and any attempts to reach Cespedes have been unsuccessful" pic.twitter.com/RHL4tXnUkE— SNY (@SNYtv) August 2, 2020
@SNYtv

Everyone’s hoping there’s a simple explanation for the situation … Cespedes WAS in attendance for Saturday’s game … The NY Mets are concerned about their star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes — saying he didn’t show up to the ballpark for Sunday’s game — and hasn’t checked in with team officials. but never made it back to the field on Sunday. He did not reach out to management with any explanation for his absence. Problem is, Cespedes didn’t inform the Mets organization of his plans, according to NYM GM Brodie Van Wagenen. Unclear what changed Cespedes’ perspective since Saturday — when he played in the Mets-Braves game. but has decided to opt out of the 2020 season.

And then, he hurled some disgusting obscenities, and as he tried to make his way inside a female staffer blocked him, and then, with all his might, unloaded a punch to her face. The crowd clearly had enough, tackling the guy and taking him to the ground. He’s still in custody. America, 2020.

Kanye West’s presidential campaign just got serious, because he’s gunning to get on the Ohio ballot, and that state could be a determining factor in who occupies the White House. Ye needs 5,000 signatures in Ohio by Wednesday to qualify. Ohio, West Virginia and Arkansas.

Wilford Brimley, Face of Quaker Oats & Diabetes Campaigns, Dead at 85

Wilford Brimley — an iconic actor who was the face of Quaker Oats for years, as well as a spokesperson for diabetes education — has died … Folks might remember Wilford more for commercials though over the years — specifically, his campaigns with Quaker Oats through the ’80s and ’90s, and maybe even more memorable … The American Diabetes Association honored him for his lifetime of advocacy in 2008. In the ’80s, he started breaking out into more traditional films, appearing in flicks like “High Road to China,” “10 to Midnight,” “Tough Enough,” “Jackals,” “End of the Line,” and a bunch of other B-movies where he’d often play an authority figure or a grandfatherly figure with his deep, comforting Southern accent. a rep tells TMZ. We’re told Brimley passed away Saturday morning at his home in Utah. Wilford was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus in 1979, and managed the disease ever since then — obviously, he was very open about it. He’s perhaps most known for roles in cult classic films like “Cocoon,” “The Natural,” “The Thing,” “Hard Target,” and countless other memorable on-screen appearances, big and small. He went on to star in countless other movies and shows, notably on “Our House,” in which he starred in over 40 episodes, as well one-off appearances in hit series like “Walker, Texas Ranger,” “Seinfeld,” and so many others. Sources with direct knowledge of Wilford’s health tell us he was in an ICU wing of a hospital on dialysis, and very sick for days. A rep for Wilford tells TMZ, one of his favorite quotes was from a sign at a blacksmith’s shop. Brimley started out as mostly a TV actor, landing one-time roles on TV series like “How the West Was Won,” ‘Kung Fu,’ “The Oregon Trail,” and then eventually … It read, “There is nothing made, sold, or done that can’t be made, sold, or done cheaper. Wilford was 85. a recurring part on “The Waltons.” He went on to star in a bunch of TV movies, such as “The Wild Wild West Revisited,” “Amber Waves,” “Roughnecks,” “Rodeo Girl,” ‘The Big Black Pill,’ and so on. One of the best character actors without a doubt. his classic diabetes ads for Liberty Medical — which was often spoofed, but also beloved. If price is your only concern, please do business with my competitor.”

He’s survived by his wife, Beverly, and his three children. Wilford had a lengthy career on camera, dating back to the 1970s with over 70 acting credits. RIP

Congressman Jim Clyburn Compares Trump to Hitler

REPEATING HISTORY? Clyburn told CNN, “I feel very strongly that Trump is Mussolini, Putin and Hitler… I don’t think he plans to leave the White House. Donald Trump is fashioning his presidency after the likes of Adolf Hitler, and if Americans aren’t careful, history can repeat itself. The Congressman noted that Trump said earlier this year he was the nation’s chief law enforcement officer — that’s not the case, but it’s evidence of a dictator trying to consolidate power. He doesn’t plan to have fair and unfettered elections. The veteran Democratic Congressman from South Carolina warned Americans that Trump’s latest play — suggesting the November election should be postponed because of phantom voter fraud — is further evidence Trump has no intention of leaving The White House, even if he loses. Trump has praised various dictators during his term … there have been many warning signs Trump fashions himself as a dictator. even musing that the U.S. might take a page out of the playbook in China and install its president for life. I believe that he plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to hold onto the office”

ON A PATH TO GLORY

TMZSports.com

Mike Tyson says he WILL be trying to knock out Roy Jones Jr. He became the heavyweight champ at 45 and finally retired for good in ’97 at age 48. When we asked specifically if he’ll be looking for a knockout, Tyson told us, “If the opportunity comes, I’m always looking for it.”

Tyson is 54 and hasn’t fought since a 2005 loss to Kevin McBride … on Saturday, it didn’t seem like he got that memo. So, who ya gonna believe?!!? Here’s what CSAC executive director Andy Foster told Yahoo Sports — “This isn’t a situation where they’re going out there to try to take each other’s heads off. when they step in the ring in Sept. “If he don’t get it quick, his ass belongs to me!” Tyson says both he and Jones know exactly what they’re getting themselves into — “We’re both professionals. As for Roy, he told us he’s expecting Tyson to be headhunting from the opening bell — but insists he’s got a HUGE conditioning advantage over Mike. … claiming his mentality is still “search and destroy.”

The issue is, the head of the California State Athletic Commission recently told the media the guys will be going EASY on each other and WON’T be headhunting. We know how to handle ourselves and whatever happens, happens.”

He adds, “The fighting game is what I’m about and hurting people is what I’m about.”

We’ve seen the training videos — Tyson still looks like he could do some serious damage. and that concerns boxing legend George Foreman who recently told TMZ Sports he’s worried someone might get seriously hurt.
