Tyga

"Where All the Little/Loyal Girls At?"

9/5/2015 7:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tyga dodged a bullet, some say, now that Kylie Jenner is 18 ... but he may have resurrected the criticism that dogged him for a year by asking the crowd Friday night, "Where all the little girls at?"

Tyga performed at  First Slice Media Party .. the world's largest pizza festival hosted by DJ Steve Aoki and gave the shout-out right before performing "Loyal" at the Bev Hills mansion.

To some, it sounds like the rapper says "little" and others hear "loyal." Either way ... we're not too sure.

Ironic if it pissed off Kylie, right?

Britney Spears

Tight with Ex-Fiance's BFF

EXCLUSIVE

0905-britney-hudson-splash-02Britney Spears had an interesting liaison Friday night ... playing grabsees with ex-fiance Jason Trawick's best buddy.

Britney was at XS nightclub in Vegas when she and Cade Hudson got cozy in the DJ booth and on the dance floor.  She bear-hugged him and generally looked pretty intimate.

The "bro code" clearly has a statute of limitations ... or at least it should.

Lil Durk

Tour Bus Hit By Gunfire

Man Dies Before Concert

breaking news

0905-lil-durk-instagram-01Rapper Lil Durk's tour bus was hit by gunfire in Philly as shots rang out before his concert, and one man is dead.

It happened Friday night outside the Theater of Living Arts.  A man in his 20's was fatally wounded and died at the hospital.  An argument erupted before the shots rang out, but it's unclear what the beef was about.

It's also unclear why the tour bus was either targeted or accidentally hit.

The suspect fled in a limo but cops eventually got him.  Three men were taken into custody and a handgun was recovered. 

Justin Bieber, Travis Scott

Call to Action

Let's Get Drunk!!!

9/5/2015 6:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber and Travis Scott became strange bedfellows at Travis' album release party, rapping about the virtues of getting wasted.

Justin joined Travis for his new album, Rodeo, at Up&Down nightclub in NYC.  The reason it's weird ... Justin has really cleaned up his act in the last year ... radically cutting back from excessive drinking and other activities.

Nonetheless, there was Justin and Travis singing "Maria" ... chanting the anthem, "Call your friends.  Let's Get Drunk!"

Scientology's David Miscavige

Target of Death Threats

9/5/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0904-david-miscavige-getty-01Someone is out to kill Scientology honcho David Miscavige ... or so the guy vows, and it's triggered a big police investigation.

A man repeatedly called the main number for Scientology in Hollywood in July, making very direct threats:

    "Tell David that we are going to kill him."

    "We are going to assassinate Mr. Miscavige and every single one of you."

    "You tell your leader, who is an a**hole and a motherf*****, he is going to be shot pretty soon."

We're told the operator kept the man on the phone during the last call for 2 hours and 55 minutes and got identifying information, including his Skype address.  

Scientology forwarded the info to LAPD's Major Crimes Unit, which launched an investigation and executed a search warrant last month. The person the LAPD closed in on is a Jewish businessman.

It's unclear if any arrests have been made.

Rachel Uchitel

Major Brain Surgery Scheduled

9/5/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0904-rachel-uchitel-tmz-01

Rachel Uchitel will undergo surgery so major, her entire brain will be lifted off the cavity.

We're told Rachel has been suffering from back pain for years, but all treatment failed. She recently went to a surgeon who told her she had a condition called Chiari, a birth defect that causes brain tissue to settle into the spinal canal.

Tiger Woods' former GF will go in for surgery in 2 weeks, where doctors will cut a hole in the back of her head and lift the brain off the spinal canal.

Rachel's terrified but doctors say they're fairly confident ... 50% become symptom-free, 10-30% improve significantly and the rest don't.

So so Vegas odds, but doctors say she'll be ok.

0905-rowan-atkinson-getty-02Mr. Bean can still drive a funny little green car with a broom stick just as well as anyone else and he proved it yesterday in the UK.

Rowan Atkinson, the man behind the character was there to celebrate Bean's 25th anniversary. And if you're wondering ... yes, Teddy made an appearance too.

The celebration came with a cake and all outside Buckingham Palace and this time -- Bean didn't injure the queen.

Rapper Travis Scott

Lunges at Fan ...

I'm NOT A$AP Rocky!!!

9/5/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Travis Scott lost it Thursday night when several fans mistook him for A$AP Rocky.

True enough they have similar hairstyles, but it's clearly a sore spot for the rapper, who was going into Up & Down nightclub in NYC for his album release party.

It was a big deal for Travis ... Bieber and Kendall Jenner were inside to cheer him on, but he had to shake off a case of the angries before entering.

As for Shakespeare's question, "What's in a name?"  Now we can answer ... everything.

The Beatles

Contract that Bound them Together

Up for Auction

9/5/2015 6:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0905-beatles-contract-launch-01The world would never have enjoyed and been influenced by The Beatles if they didn't sign this contract ... at least that's what an auction house wants you to believe.

It's actually pretty awesome ... a 1962 agreement between John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Star and their manager Brian Epstein.  

The contract give the legendary Epstein wide-ranging power ... authority to choose clothes, make-up and presentation of the group.  It also gives the group power to boot a member if 2 or more want them out.

Right up there with the Magna Carta?  No?
