Ray J to Kanye West You're a Shameless Hypocrite

8/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829-ray-j-kanye-west-TMZ-01Kanye West is a hypocrite for embracing his wife's sex tape now that it suits his purposes, after blasting Ray J for daring to write a song about the famous video ... at least that's what Ray has been telling his crew.

We're told Ray is livid that Kanye rhapsodized about the sex tape during the VMAs ... even giving him a shout-out. You'll recall after Ray J dropped "I Hit it First," Kanye called him "Brandy's little sister" and threw in "lame" for bad measure.

Ray J can't do anything about his cameo in the "Famous" video, but he's not happy about it ... and it has nothing to do with shame over the sex tape. He just feels Kanye is two-faced for turning his nose up at the tape but then embracing it to make a buck.

We're told Ray is also pissed that Kim trashed him after he released "I Hit it First," but then grinned ear to ear at the VMAs when Kanye referred to the sexual tryst that made her untold millions of bucks.

Paris Jackson Reconnects with Mom After Breast Cancer Diagnosis

8/30/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829_debbie-rowe-paris_jackson_gettyDebbie Rowe just found out she must undergo chemo and radiation to fight her breast cancer that was recently diagnosed -- but if there is a silver lining, it's that the illness has brought Paris Jackson back into her life.

We've learned Paris -- who went radio silent on Debbie 2 years ago -- has been spending time with her mom since we broke the story last month she's fighting breast cancer. Paris has been visiting Debbie at her ranch and Debbie has gone to Paris' home, where the 2 have reestablished their bond. They're also texting ... a lot.  

Debbie and Paris became very close after Paris' dad, Michael Jackson, died back in 2009. But a couple years ago Paris cut all ties ... wouldn't even return Debbie's calls.

We're told Debbie starts her chemo next month, and Paris is at the center of her support system.

Miley Cyrus Moonman Trophy for Sale! Homeless Date Needs Cash

8/30/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829_Jesse-Helt-and-Miley-at-the-2014-VMA_gettyThe homeless guy Miley Cyrus took to the VMAs is finally cashing in on his big night with the singer ... by hawking her Moonman.

Jesse Helt is auctioning the trophy on eBay-- the bidding starts at $10k, but there's a "Buy It Now" option for $15k. Helt got his 15 minutes back in 2014 when he accepted Cyrus' Video of the Year award with a tearjerker speech about homelessness.

People connected to Jesse tell us he's been on a hot streak -- he recently got a studio apartment in L.A. and he's expecting a baby in a few months. We're told he's selling the VMA to prep for il bambino. 

If $10k sounds steep -- keep in mind Coolio's trophy for "Gangsta's Paradise" once sold for $6k, and someone paid $72k for the "We Are the World" statuette!

Fun fact: Miley's Moonman is engraved with her name and Jesse's.

Zendaya Coleman Mom Pulls Plug ... Files for Divorce

8/30/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829-zendaya-parents-divorce-tear-cut-GETTY-INSTAGRAM-02Zendaya Coleman's parents are splitting up after 8 years of marriage, and while it appears to be amicable ... Zendaya could be smack in the middle of settlement negotiations.

Claire Stoermer filed divorce docs against Kazembe Ajamu Coleman late last week, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple married in 2008 -- when Zendaya was 12.

Zendaya is their only child together, and because she's 19 ... child support won't be an issue.

Here's what could be an issue -- Kazembe is her manager, and since that management contract was made during the marriage ... any money earned from that deal would be community property.

According to the docs, Claire's not looking for spousal support, nor does she want the court to award him any ... so, it's likely they've worked out a settlement.

0829_Zendaya_PARENTS_getty-3Mom or Dad is usually with Zendaya when we see her out -- even when she's out on a date ... like earlier this year with Odell Beckham Jr.

EXCLUSIVE

0829-sean-kingston-INSTAGRAM-01Sean Kingston has no problem picking out tons of high-end jewelry, but paying for it is another story ... according to the high-end jeweler who says they got screwed.

NYC jeweler Aqua Master just sued Kingston over 9 pieces of jewelry he scooped up last month -- valued at more than $300,000. The jeweler says Sean promised his biz manager would wire money to pay his tab.

According to the suit, Aqua got 2 checks instead of a wire transfer ... and they bounced. Meanwhile, Sean was enjoying 2 diamond necklaces, a few gold chains, a ring, a bracelet and 2 watches. A rep for Aqua tells us Sean even flaunted the goods on IG. 

0829_sean_kingston_jewelery_sub_instagramThe company is suing Kingston and his company, coincidentally named ... Time Is Money Entertainment.

This is old hat for Kingston, who was sued by a Florida jeweler in March, and also ordered to pay another NYC jeweler for an unpaid bill.

Sean's rep hasn't gotten back to us -- but on Raq Rants he explained why so many jewelers have beef with him.

0829-colin-kaepernick-donald-trump-TMZ-01Donald Trump is channeling his inner-Richard Nixon when it comes to Colin Kaepernick -- when it comes to America, LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT! 

Trump called in KIRO in Seattle and was asked how he felt about the 49ers QB's National Anthem protest -- and in classic Trump fashion, he didn't hold back. 

"I think it’s personally not a good thing," Trump said ... "I think it’s a terrible thing."

"Maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try. It won’t happen."

Ice Cube Team Trump Pulled a Fast One ... But I'm NOT Suing

EXCLUSIVE

Ice Cube is pissed off about the video clip making it seem like he's backing Donald Trump for President, but what's more shocking is ... he's letting the Donald off the hook. 

Check out this video of Cube at LAX -- he's definitely not happy his old Bloomberg Politics interview resurfaced Saturday on a pro-Trump Twitter account. He shoots down the out-of-context clip as a lame attempt to jack his endorsement.

Cube made it 100% clear with a tweet, but he also told our photog his fans wouldn't be fooled ... for one HUGE and obvious reason.

Gladys Knight I'm Not Chicken to Sue My Son

8/29/2016 1:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829-gladys-knight-restaurant-chicken-and-waffles-TMZ-YELP-01Gladys Knight might've just proved blood isn't always thicker than water -- she just sued her son to stop using mama's name and face in the restaurant biz.

Gladys wants the person now running the restaurants previously managed by her son, Shanga Hankerson, to 86 her from signs and promotions for the chicken and waffle joints.

Gladys says she gave the green light to use her name and image for the restaurants back in '99, but put the kibosh on the deal a few months ago after the eateries were raided by the Georgia Department of Revenue. Her son was arrested for allegedly pocketing a million bucks.

And one more thing ... in addition to money and an injunction, Gladys wants all her memorabilia adorning the restaurants returned to her.

Gene Wilder Dead at 83

Breaking News

0829-gene-wilder-GETTY-01Gene Wilder -- star of classics like "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," "Blazing Saddles," "Young Frankenstein" and more -- has died. 

The actor passed away Monday from complications from Alzeimer's disease, according to his agent. The rep says Wilder kept his condition secret because he didn't want to force children -- who still called out "there's Willy Wonka" -- to ask questions about the illness.

Wilder was 83. 

Wilder was married to Gilda Radner from 1984 until she passed away in 1989. He married again in 1991 to Karen Boyer. 

Wilder is survived by a daughter, Katharine -- whom he adopted in 1967 when he married her mother, Mary Joan Schutz.

Gene teamed up with Richard Pryor to make several classic comedies in the '70s and '80s, including "Stir Crazy" -- but his turn as the Jim, Waco Kid is legendary ...
