Meek Mill Tried to Block Drake From Philly Turnup

8/23/2016 11:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-drake-meek-mill-TMZ-02Meek Mill tried to set up a full blockade of Drake in Philadelphia, but the plan blew up in his face ... TMZ has learned.

Sources in both rappers' camps tell us Meek had Sunday night marked down on his calendar -- knowing full well Drake was scheduled to be behind enemy lines ... performing in Meek's hometown. We're told Meek's crew put out calls to several nightclubs asking them to turn down Drake if he wanted to throw an after-party.

Meek's camp also put out calls to several hundred of their homies in town, and asked them to make a show of force at the Wells Fargo Center. Things really got heated when their crews contacted each other directly -- Meek's team warning Drake's that there better not be any disrespect when they got to Philly.  

We're told the warning only pissed off Drake ... and reignited the beef. This is exactly why he called Meek a "p****" on Saturday night ... and then ripped into him even harder in Philly.

For what it's worth -- Drake did NOT party in town after the concert. It's unclear if that's because Meek's blockade was successful, or if Drizzy just chose to get the hell outta Dodge ... with all his bodyguards nearby.

EXCLUSIVE

0803_mara_bday_launch2.JPGModel Mara Teigen's new mystery boyfriend footed the $50,000 bill for her 22nd birthday, and the luxurious event had everything you'd want at an all-chick celebration ... except pillows.

Mara's party went down Sunday at the Beverly Hills Hotel in the Presidential Bungalow suite, which goes for about $27k a night. Dude also threw in a 6 ft tall orchid arrangement for $3,500 and a $2,500 cake. Not to mention the $12,000 diamond Cartier bracelet she got as a gift.

We're told she's been with the BF for about 8 months, but wants to keep his identity under wraps. And if he's gonna keep dropping this kinda coin, we say ... no need to rock the boat.

As for the guest list ... Justin Bieber's recent fling, Sahara Ray, "DASH Dolls" star Durrani and Carl's Jr. model Emily Sears were all there in white swimwear.

Still ... no pillow fight. Bummer.

Nipsey Hussle My Chain Is Dope ... Seriously, Light It Up

8/23/2016 10:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-Nipsey-Hussle-tmzNipsey Hussle never has to worry about running outta chronic as long as he's wearing his new 100 percent smokable gold chain.

Nipsey's new piece is every stoner's dream ... 100 grams of weed rolled into joints with gold papers, and then linked together. The giant pendant is toke-ready too!

The handiwork was done by professional joint roller Tony Greenhand -- yes, that's a job, and you gotta love his name. We're told the papers alone cost $300, and the pendant is loaded with $3,000 worth of pot ... retail price, of course.

Nispey got it gratis though. It's just a matter of time before that chain's reduced to a choker, and then a bracelet ... a ring ... paper clip ...

Tyler Perry's color-blind ... and he's firing back at all the haters giving him crap over his new TV series.

We caught up with him Monday night at Craig's in WeHo and our photog asked him about all the criticism he's getting for his eight-part series, "Too Close to Home," on TLC.

Yes, it's a mostly a white cast ... but the genius behind the 'Madea' movies thinks people need to see it differently.

Ariana Grande Lip-Lock with Another Rapper

8/23/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822_ariana_grande_mac_miller_kissing_tmz_wm Ariana Grande and Mac Miller are going very public with their relationship -- sucking down sushi and each other's faces, and we got the pics.

The couple hit up Katsu-Ya in the Valley Sunday night and couldn't keep their hands off of each other -- kissing and giggling through the meal. Witnesses tell us at one point Ariana was even lying on his lap. 

Sources close to them tell us they are dating, even though Mac's downplayed their relationship in interviews ... referring to Ariana as just a "homey." 

They've got some history. Before Ariana hooked up with Big Sean ... Mac was on the scene as her boyfriend in her "The Way" music video.

Way to go, homey.

  

Tyga Groundhog Day! Nailed for $186k Landlord Tab

8/23/2016 8:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822_Tyga_tmz-2Tyga better bust out his bad renter playbook to deal with another landlord who won a judgment against him for trashing a rented space.

Tyga owes $186,275.89 to F&S Investment Properties after he allegedly abandoned ship and left the space in ruins ... according to docs. The "Rack City" rapper rented the space for his company, Egypt Last Kings Clothing, and is accused of pouring ink down the drain and a bunch of other tenant no-nos.

Here's the deal ... if Tyga doesn't pay he knows what could happen next -- F&S lawyers will grill him in court about his finances. You'll recall a Malibu landlord tried to do the same, but when Tyga was a no-show for a hearing ... a warrant went out for his arrest. He eventually paid up to settle the case.

No doubt, F&S is gunning for the same result. Rinse and repeat.

Wes Scantlin Gives Bomb Squad Major Headache

8/23/2016 9:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-wes-scantlin-TMZ-01Wes Scantlin scared the crap out of his neighbors by pulling a Wile E. Coyote plot that made his car look like a bomb ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Puddle of Mudd singer took matters into his own hands after his car was broken into multiple times. We're told the scheme -- involving 2 vehicles -- was pretty basic: a radio under one car with wires leading into the motor, and the second car had wires from a door to the gas tank.

Rather than scare off crooks, it terrified neighbors who called cops. The bomb squad came out and evacuated 4 surrounding buildings in the WeHo neighborhood.

As you can imagine, cops laid into Wes for the stupid idea, which drained valuable police resources.

He wasn't charged with a crime, for once. He needs to go buy The Club.

There's no trouble in paradise for Tamar Braxton and her husband, Vince Herbert ... at least that's how they're making it seem.

We got the couple Monday night at LAX, walking hand in hand, and asked if all is well in their marriage -- after an alleged incident Sunday afternoon in Atlanta. According to police docs, officers responded to the Ritz-Carlton for a couple having a heated argument.

Vince had reportedly bolted from the hotel when cops arrived ... and ultimately officers determined it was just a shouting match and there was no crime committed. 

So, check out the video -- they've either patched things up, or the Oscar goes to ...
