How Pete Davidson Has Honored His Father, Who Died in the 9/11 Terrorist Attack. Pete Davidson's father, a New York City firefighter, died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks when the Saturday Night Live star was just 7 years old. On the anniversary of his dad Scott's death, Davidson often posts on social media to honor him. Since his Twitter and Instagram purge earlier this year, Davidson, 24, hasn't said anything publicly about losing his father 17 years ago. But for the 15-year mark, he shared two photos with his dad. In the first, his dad sips Heineken beer, and Davidson captioned it: "Can't believe tomorrow is going to be 15 years. Missing the legend!!! Thank u all for ur kind words and support as always #werememberthem." In 2015, the actor shared a series of tweets remembering his father -- a mix of jokes, well wishes for today's firefighters and thank you's to people who showed their support, including Mae Whitman and costars Aidy Bryant and Vanessa Bayer. He wrote, "I really appreciate it. I'm a very lucky guy." He also ended the day on a serious note, tweeting, "All jokes aside. There's not a day that goes by where I dont think of u. Ur my hero. Cant wait to see u again someday." More recently, Davidson has involved his fiancee Ariana Grande in keeping his father's memory alive. In July, just a few weeks after the couple announced their engagement, the singer, 25, was seen with a small tattoo of the numbers 8418, Scott's badge number. Davidson also has the numbers inked on his left arm. And later that month, the "Sweetener" singer was seen wearing a gold necklace with a pendant of his late father's FDNY badge. When followers criticized Davidson on social media for giving it to her, he commented back, "For ur information that's not just some girl, that's my fiance. She's the greatest person I know. I gave it to her because she has my heart and that is the most precious thing I own. My dad would be so happy and love her so much." (People)

Drew Barrymore was spotted with ex Justin Long at the Lowell Hotel on the Upper East Side Monday -- and a spy told us they seemed romantic. "He came in [alone]. They left together," said a spy. "It was like they were together and trying to look like they weren't." The pair dated off-and-on for nearly two years before she married Will Kopelman, whom she divorced in 2016. A Barrymore source told us they've been friends since they split. A rep for Barrymore did not respond. (Page Six)

It's distantly possible that Angelina Jolie is keen for us to see her with her kids as her divorce plays out in the press. The actress hit up a notoriously paparazzi-infested stretch of Sunset Boulevard with her brood -- not once, but twice, over the past few days. Sources tell us that Jolie dropped by Fred Segal -- once considered the place for aspiring celebs to get "unexpectedly" snapped -- on Sunday with teens Maddox and Zahara to peruse their goods. Then the clan went back again on Monday to buy some pieces. We're told they checked out the pop-up Fred Segal Loves Browns. Jolie and soon-to-be-ex-husband, Brad Pitt, seem to increasingly be using the media as a weapon in their divorce. First Jolie filed publicly available court papers claiming Pitt is a deadbeat dad -- a move later blasted as a publicity stunt by pals of Pitt. Then the "Seven" star hit back, filing his own papers claiming that he'd loaned her millions of dollars to buy a house. (Page Six)

The Kar-Jenner girls are looking pretty in pink! On Tuesday night, Kylie Jenner shared an adorable snapshot on Instagram of her daughter, Stormi getting cozy with Kim Kardashian and Kayne West's youngest, Chicago. The cousins, who are just 17 days apart, were decked out in matching long-sleeved pink PJ tops and matching pink bottoms. Fittingly captioning the image "slumber party ??," Kylie captured the precious moment as the girls lay on a fuzzy pink blanket. In the snap, Stormi, 7 months, is clinging to a pink and aqua ball and Chicago, 8 months, is clutching what appears to be a tube of diaper rash cream. Since welcoming Stormi in February with rapper Travis Scott, Kylie, 21, has made sure that her daughter spends a lot of time with the baby's many cousins, including Chicago. "They hang out all the time," Kylie revealed in a sit-down about motherhood for the Evening Standard. "It's crazy how fast they grow, because Chi is just, like, two weeks older, but you can tell she's a little bit more advanced. And then, right when Stormi hits two weeks, she's doing the same things Chi was doing, and they're like... it's just crazy to see them grow up together." Kylie's not the only sister to encourage cousin bonding. On Saturday, Kim, 37, shared a photo of Chicago enjoying time with cousin True. Kim captioned the shot, in which Chicago is seen placing her hand on her smiling cousin, "I got this True." (People)

"Astroworld" was just the start ... Travis Scott's now looking to take his brand to another world, like a true space cadet. The rapper recently filed paperwork to acquire the rights to "S.P.A.C.E" ... and it looks like he wants to plaster that term all over a wide variety of merchandise. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Travis has earthly plans to produce "S.P.A.C.E" branded clothing, jewelry, cosmetics, fragrances, non-alcoholic beverages and an online retail store to sell it all. Scott also filed docs to lock down "S.P.A.C.E 1991" and "S.P.A.C.E 2001." What's not clear in the docs is what the hell it stands for, if anything. It's possible he's just a Stanley Kubrickfan. Either way, keep an eye out for the new brand from Travis, as he boldly goes where no man has gone before ... with consumer goods. (TMZ)

The pictures are from an upcoming book by photographer Russell James that features nude and provocative images of several Victoria's Secret "Angels." Nude pictures of Kendall Jenner leaked in the late hours on Tuesday, and by Wednesday morning, she had been subjected to a litany of reactions, including extensive body shaming. The photos were taken by photographer Russell James and intended for release in his upcoming book, "Angels." According to TMZ, they were released without his permission. But, as one would expect, the pictures wasted no time circulating across and throughout social media. The response, though, has been more mixed than one might expect for professional photos of a young model, with many expressing shock and even dismay over the pictures on Twitter. Jenner has also been subjected to extensive body shaming for the shoot, with users calling out the model for her slight frame and lack of signature Kardashian-family curves. Still others, like Brandi Glanville, came to the junior "Kardashian's" defense, calling out those who would shame her with the same breath they attack the elder Kardashians for alleged surgeries to accentuate their curves. The hypocrisy of people never ceases to amaze and their capacity to tear others down seems limitless. (Too Fab)

Ginger Zee is one hard-working mama! The Good Morning America meteorologist took time out of her busy schedule to sit down with Us Weekly and take a ride around New York City in the first of our video series "Carpool Confessions, in which celebrity moms and dads get real about parenting. Watch the video to hear how the TV personality, 37, manages to balance her busy life! Zee, who shares sons Adrian, 2, and Miles, 7 months with her husband Ben Aaron, admitted that mom guilt is "inevitable." Whether she's waking up in the middle of the night to head to her early-morning shift at GMA, or traveling without her toddler and newborn, leaving isn't easy. To new parents who have to go back to work, she advised: "Give yourself grace. I think that mom guilt starts from the second the baby is born, so that's going to happen. It's OK to feel that and let it wash over you, because it's going to come anyway." While she may appear to have her life together, she said that it's not always that way! "I was speaking at a conference. I had on my cool travel outfit. I was just giving [Miles] one more bottle before I left for the airport. This kid not just spit up, threw up everything he had eaten for the day," she laughed. "Covered my cool travel outfit. It splattered all over the walls, all over the rug. I'm on my hands on and knees [cleaning]. This is glamorous." Watch Zee daily on Good Morning America on ABC. (US Weekly)

Awwww, the widdle U.S. Open judge has hurt feewings?? SUCK IT UP, PAL, YOU DON'T DOCK SERENA WILLIAMS A FULL GAME PENALTY!! At least, that's how Common feels about the drama involving his ex-girlfriend -- telling TMZ Sports the judge shouldn't be so damn sensitive when a passionate player blows up on him. Remember, Carlos Ramos was so offended when Serena called him a "thief" during a heated moment in the U.S. Open final, he punished her by penalizing her 1 full game. "You gotta rise above it as a referee," Common said ... "She was having a time at that moment, she should be allowed that space. She's a passionate athlete." Common also explained, "I think the referee should have gave her some leeway. You could see she was having an emotional time and because she is that great and what she means to the sport, you don't want to see the match end because or things get swayed one way because of a referee." "You should let the athletes play it out." Common also believes that Serena is a mature adult -- and will ultimately hold herself accountable for whatever she believes she did wrong ... IF she thinks she did anything wrong. (TMZ)

Everyone's seen the video of President George W. Bush taking the mound at Yankees Stadium on October 30 -- in the wake of 9/11 -- but the man who caught the pitch is telling us what went down behind the scenes. TMZ Sports spoke with Todd Greene -- the backup catcher for the Yanks that year -- who not only praised Bush for throwing a strike with the world watching ... but doing it while wearing a bulletproof vest. The Yankees were taking on the Diamondbacks in Game 3 of the World Series -- the first World Series game back at Yankees Stadium ... and the scene was about as emotional as it could get. Greene says the secret service had placed bulletproof glass in George Steinbrenner's private owner's box where Bush was watching the game ... and that was just the tip of the iceberg when it came to security. Greene says the players were essentially on lockdown once POTUS arrived at the stadium. By the way, the Yankees won the game 2-1. If you'd like to donate to the 9/11 Memorial Fund, click here. (TMZ)

Insider says accused CBS producer Jeff Fager isn't hiding. After Page Six reported that CBS bigwig Jeff Fager wasn't at work the day after he was accused of sexual misconduct by a former intern, a source close to the "60 Minutes" producer insists that the absence was due to a long-planned vacation. "He's not hiding," said an insider. On Sunday, the New Yorker reported that a former CBS intern, Sarah Johansen, had accused Fager of touching her butt during a work party in the 2000s. Fager's boss, Les Moonves -- who was also accused of sexual misconduct in the New Yorker article -- resigned after it was published. But the insider told us that Fager is not making any plans about his future until an investigation into his and Moonves' behavior concludes. Fager declined to comment to the New Yorker about the allegations, while Moonves told the magazine that he'd had romantic relationships with some of the accusers many years ago but denied any non-consensual activity.

Norm Macdonald is no friend of the #MeToo movement ... and the comedian is tired of seeing showbiz types like Roseanne Barr and Louis C.K. having their careers ruined by scandals. Norm says he's happy the #MeToo movement has "slowed down" ... and he has a hard time believing every victim who comes forward with allegations, according to an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. The former "Saturday Night Live" star also says it's a shame Roseanne and Louis had their careers derailed by backlash to their words and actions ... believing everyone deserves forgiveness if they admit their wrongs and show remorse. Norm even set up a conversation between Roseanne and Louis after they both had gigs canceled -- Barr had her show axed by ABC in the wake of racist comments and C.K. was dropped by Netflix and FX following sexual misconduct. Norm says Roseanne and Louis lost everything in a day, but the victims didn't suffer the same way. It's some pretty inflammatory stuff from Norm, but we're guessing he won't be fazed by any negative feedback. (TMZ)

Forget an iced latte, Stefon Diggs just got an iced out Starbucks chain -- and it's all because the dude is OBSESSED with the coffee house ... TMZ Sports has learned. In case you didn't know ... the Minnesota Vikings star WR is a self-proclaimed Starbucks addict (he even wore Starbucks-themed cleats against Seattle last season). But, Diggs decided to take it one step further ... hitting up Al the Jeweler from Labelle Jewelry in Totowa, NJ to create a diamond-studded tribute to the java joint. Al tells TMZ Sports the piece -- which features more than 1,000 emeralds and VS diamonds -- took over a month to complete. We're told Diggs loved the finished product more than an espresso macchiato (and who doesn't love those?). Al -- who works with huge stars like Jarvis Landry and Terrance Williams (to name a few) -- was tight-lipped on how much Diggs spent on the chain ... but our sources estimate it to be around $15k. Oh, and we're also told one of the reasons Stefon got the piece was because, like Starbucks, he's "open all day." #TreatYoSelf. (TMZ)

Rev. Jesse Jackson has a message for all the Colin Kaepernick haters -- Tim Tebow took a knee too ... and nobody had a problem with that! We got Jesse leaving Reagan International Airport this week when he used the ex-Heisman Trophy winner to explain what he believes is the hypocrisy surrounding the outrage directed at Kaepernick. "It's interesting that when Tim Tebow took a knee, it was accepted," Jesse tells TMZ Sports. "Kaepernick takes a knee and he's rejected. Both of them took a knee in protest of what they believed in. One was religion. One was for justice. Okay." Remember ... Tim used to take knees prior to every game -- albeit not DURING the national anthem -- and it was so widely praised, a social media meme came of it. Clearly -- Jesse thinks Kaep deserves the same treatment. (TMZ)
