Fla. family finds $1M of sunken Spanish treasure!

For a few weeks, the Schmitt family and 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels LLC had a million-dollar secret on their hands. Last month, they recovered $1 million worth of sunken Spanish coins and jewels off the Florida coast.

"The treasure was actually found a month ago," said Brent Brisben of 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels LLC. Keeping the news under wraps was "particularly hard for the family that found it. They've been beside themselves."

Recovered:

• 51 gold coins

• 40 feet of ornate gold chain

• A single coin called a Royal made for the king of Spain, Phillip V, a news release states. Only a few are known to exist, and the coin — nicknamed "Tricentennial Royal" — is dated 1715. Brisben said the extremely rare silver-dollar-sized coin is worth "probably around half a million dollars itself."

Did Taylor Swift diss Katy Perry?

Taylor Swift may have planned an onstage "shark attack" against Katy Perry.

The 25-year-old songstress belted out her hit track "Bad Blood" during her "1989" stop in Foxborough, Mass., over the weekend and somehow a shark dancer popped up behind a screen.

Swift quickly laughed off the cameo appearance and continued singing the song, which is rumored to be written about her dissolved friendship with Perry.

Rob Schneider Burglarized $175K Willie Mays Baseball Card Stolen!

Rob Schneider's home was burglarized Friday night and uber-expensive jewelry was taken, but nothing as expensive as an ultra-rare baseball card.

The "Deuce Bigalow" star was at the Comedy Film Festival in Montreal, and his wife and kid were out to dinner in L.A. when the thieves broke into their Encino home. They made off with his wife's diamond engagement ring, a Cartier watch and other expensive items.

But the biggest ticket item ... a mint condition 1951 Bowman Willie Mays rookie card ... valued at $175,000.

Rob famously collects old baseball cards, especially from the '50s and '60s. The thieves also made off with a 1953 Willie Mays Topps and a 1971 as well. The Willie Mays cards were separate from Rob's main card collection, which the thieves didn't find.

One source familiar with the investigation tells TMZ ... the Willie Mays card is so rare, it will be difficult or impossible to fence it.

Boy Scouts lift ban on gay leaders.

The Boy Scouts of America on Monday ended its ban on openly gay adult leaders.

But the new policy allows church-sponsored units to choose local unit leaders who share their precepts, even if that means restricting such positions to heterosexual men.

Despite this compromise, the Mormon Church said it might leave the organization anyway. Its stance surprised many and raised questions about whether other conservative sponsors, including the Roman Catholic Church, might follow suit.

Two Florida Teens go missing, boat found empty.

In the warm waters off the Florida coast this time of year, the Coast Guard says, someone can survive four, maybe five days.

Florida teens Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos have been missing since Friday -- four days and counting.

"People can survive in the water," said Capt. Mark Fedor, chief of response for the Coast Guard 7th District. "It's relatively warm, but, again, it's a dangerous environment, and there's only so long you could stay in the water."

The day-and-night search is focused 60 to 70 miles (97 to 113 kilometers) off Jacksonville, north of where the boys' capsized boat was found Sunday. Fedor said search conditions were good, but the situation is dire.

The Coast Guard says five cutters, a Navy ship and multiple planes are involved in the search.

LeBron's Exposed Penis Triggered FCC Complaints!

Remember when LeBron James accidentally flashed his dong on live TV during the NBA Finals? Well, it ruined one viewer's Laser Tag date ... this according to the FCC.

TMZ Sports obtained the complaints that were sent to the Federal Communications Commission back in June after cameras got too close to LeBron's crotch while he was adjusting himself during Game 4.

In total, 5 people bitched about the impromptu peep show to the FCC -- which released the documents to TMZ Sports, though the names of the complainers were redacted. Here are the highlights:

-- "LeBron James showed his d*ck on national television and completely ruined my tinder date. It made us late for laser tag because I had to rewind it a few times to make sure thats exactly what we saw so we missed our bus. He clearly did it on purpose and hes not as good as Michael Jordan."

-- "I am shocked and appalled! I don't want my kids looking at male genitalia on broadcast television. I am ok with seeing female mammary glands, labia, vagina, etc, over broadcast but no more penis, please!"

-- "The camera had a close up of [LeBron's] tallywacker. This is the type of stuff I would expect from Game of Thrones, but not from the American Broadcasting Channel. At least I now know that I am bigger than the purportedly 'biggest' star in the NBA."

When asked if the FCC ever launched an investigation into the penis, the org. told us they couldn't comment on the matter.
