My Family’s Slv

Alex Tizon passed away in March. He was a Pulitzer
Prize–winning journalist and the author of Big Little
Man: In Search of My Asian Self. For more about Alex,
please see this
editor’s note

The ashes filled a black plastic
box about the size of a toaster. It weighed three and a half
pounds. I put it in a canvas tote bag and packed it in my
suitcase this past July for the transpacific flight to Manila.
From there I would travel by car to a rural village. When I
arrived, I would hand over all that was left of the woman who
had spent 56 years as a slave in my family’s household.

Johnny Depp Makes
Trump Assassination Joke

6/22/2017 5:47 PM PDT

Breaking News

Johnny Depp apparently didn’t
learn a damn thing from Kathy Griffin … he
just went and made a joke about
killing President Trump.

Depp was speaking to a crowd at the Glastonbury Festival
Thursday when he starting talking Trump, saying … “I think
he needs help.” Then he asked the crowd … “When was the
last time an actor assassinated a president?”

The crowd’s reaction — mostly cheers, but Depp still
attempted to backpedal a little bit from his clear reference
to John Wilkes
 killing Abraham
in 1865.

We’re guessing Depp can expect a call from the Secret Service
… stat. His comments would be controversial at any time,
but especially now … just weeks after Griffin went through the

Nate Diaz‘s former
agents claim they busted their ass to negotiate a sick
multi-million dollar deal for him to fight Conor
at UFC 202 only to get
fired a month before the fight … and now they’re

The Ballengee Group filed a lawsuit in
District Court in Dallas claiming they had worked with Nate
since 2014 and hammered out deals on several big fights
including Rafael Dos Anjos, Michael
and the first McGregor fight at UFC

But Ballengee claims things got icy between the two sides in
July 2016 — right after sealing the deal for Nate to fight
Conor at UFC 202 in August. 

Ballengee claims Nate “unexpectedly” fired them — and never
paid them their cut for the UFC 202 fight, which was
reportedly the biggest UFC pay-per-view ever at the

According to the suit, filed by attorney Jason
, Ballengee is demanding more than $1
MILLION in damages. 

We reached out to Nate for comment. So far, no word

MLB’s Addison Russell Wife Filing For Divorce
Won’t Talk To MLB Investigators

6/21/2017 11:00 AM PDT

Breaking News

Cubs star Addison Russell‘s wife is
filing for divorce … just 2 weeks after the MLB opened a
domestic violence investigation against the All-Star

Melisa Russell had addressed the split on
Instagram earlier this month … hinting infidelity was the
problem. Melisa’s friend later commented on the post,
claiming Russell had “mentally and physically” abused his
wife. The league took notice and launched an investigation.

Melisa’s lawyers released a statement saying she
will not speak with investigators about the claims … and
hopes to find a resolution in the best interest of their
1-year-old son.

Russell adamantly denies the accusations, calling them “false
and hurtful” … and has not been officially punished by the
Cubs or MLB.

Ex-Dodger Says Cody Bellinger Could Win MVP as Rookie

Cody Bellinger Could
Win MVP As a Rookie
… Says
Ex-World Series Champ

6/21/2017 11:26 AM PDT


Forget Rookie of the Year — Cody Bellinger already has MVP chops … so says
L.A. Dodgers analyst/former
Dodger Jerry Hairston.

“He is a legit MVP candidate,” Hairston told TMZ
 before Tuesday night’s game at Dodger
Stadium … a 12-0 L.A. blowout that saw Bellinger slug home
run #22 (his 10th in 10 games!).

Hairston knows what he’s talking about — he played in the
bigs from ’98 to ’13 and won a World Series with the Yankees
in 2009.

As for Bellinger … he’s on the most torrid HR pace for a
rookie EVER … pretty insane considering the kid started the
season in the minors.

Hairston — a third-gen MLBer — told us he’s “never seen a
start to a career like this.”

Even Cody’s dad, a three-time World Series champ, can’t
believe what he’s seeing.

Gillian Anderson‘s got another
partner opening her files these days … and sorry, Mulder,
these ‘X-Files‘ are strictly boyfriend

Scully and her bf, Peter Morgan, got steamy
sitting poolside in Portofino. She showed off her hard bod in
a blue bikini … which Peter seemed to be fully enjoying.
Smart and lucky man.

48-year-old Gillian’s moved on from her ‘X-Files’ days, and
now stars on the Starz series “American Gods.”

They might wanna rework that title … “American Goddess”
feels a little more appropriate.

Ice Cube isn’t even a tiny bit
upset his BIG3 player/coach Chauncey Billups is leaving
the BIG3 for a front office job with the Cleveland Cavs …
telling TMZ Sports the league is SUPPOSED to
be a pipeline back to the NBA. 

Cube is in NYC where he’s gearing up for opening day — THIS
WEEKEND — and we asked which BIG3 team is the favorite to
win it all. 

That’s when Cube brought up Chauncey … and maybe broke some

“It was the Killer 3’s (led by Chauncey and Stephen
) for a minute but since Chauncey took that
job, it might change.”

It’s been reported that Chauncey’s in talks with the Cavs —
but nothing has been confirmed publicly … at least not

Cube also talked Allen Iverson — telling
TMZ Sports the NBA legend has been working out like crazy and
he’s “ready to go.”
