It's that time of year again .... where Magic Johnson and Sam Jackson make you wish you'd have worked on your jump shot more, or spent more time with those weird kids in drama class. The $3 million dollar Italy vacation is back. We ran into Cookie Johnson -- Magic's wife -- in Beverly Hills and asked her if the family had summer vacation plans ... "I think we're gonna head to Europe for a little bit." She ain't talking about no timeshare ... she's talking about a jaunt up the Amalfi Coast that's become a yearly ritual for the Johnson & Jackson families ... all aboard a $700k-a-week superyacht. When we say superyacht, we mean it too -- this thing has a movie theater, gym, dining room, hot tub, helicopter pad, and an elevator!!!! Hope you enjoy your summer trip to Disneyland, normies!! (TMZ)
Kim Kardashian wants to prove death row inmate's innocence. Kim Kardashian is on another case. The reality-TV queen tweeted about the plight of San Quentin Prison death-row inmate Kevin Cooper asking California Gov. Edmund "Jerry" Brown to retest DNA evidence in his case. "Governor Brown, can you please test the DNA of Kevin Cooper?" Kardashian, 37, tweeted twice on Saturday, along with New York Times articles about the case. Cooper, 59, was convicted of the murders of Douglas and Peggy Ryen, their 10-year-old daughter Jessica and her friend, 10-year-old Chris Hughes, in Chino Hills, Calif., 1985. Since his conviction, Cooper has maintained his innocence and has exhausted all appeals for his conviction, according to the San Diego Tribune. Some of Cooper's advocates argue that the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department tampered with DNA evidence to frame Cooper and that this evidence found on a t-shirt Cooper says he never wore -- should be retested. In an op-ed on Sunday, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote that the sole survivor of the murders, 8-year-old Joshua Ryen, told investigators the killers had been three or four white men but that cops preferred to focus on Cooper instead. Last month, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-San Francisco) also called on the governor to allow the DNA to be retested. Gov. Brown hasn't announced his decision yet. His spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Kardashian recently advocated for Alice Marie Johnson, a Tennessee grandmother serving a life-sentence for a nonviolent drug offense, who was freed by President Trump this month. (PageSix)
Prince Harry wanted his future father-in-law to give Donald Trump a chance ... so claims Meghan Markle's father. Thomas Markle gave a wide-ranging interview on "Good Morning Britain" and revealed Harry once tried talking him off the ledge over the Prez. Thomas said he had been in a bad mood about something Trump had just done when he got on the horn with Harry. Thomas said, "I always have a bad attitude about Donald Trump and that's never gonna change. I have to apologize to the rest of the world for my president. All Harry actually said -- because Trump was new -- 'Give him a chance.' I think Harry's probably changed his mind by now. I certainly hope he has." That's a stunning revelation given members of the Royal family are supposed to remain apolitical ... and especially interesting since Harry's boys with President Obama. Thomas also said Brexit was loosely discussed ... Thomas says Harry told him he was "open to" the experiment of Britain leaving the European Union. But lighter topics were also discussed ... Thomas dished on talking to Harry for the first time, and he also shared how Harry asked for his daughter's hand. (TMZ)
