Drake has pulled himself out of tomorrow's big Grammy Nominations Concert in L.A., TMZ has learned ... and it's all because the guy claims he's got a last minute "scheduling conflict."
The show had been promoting the rapper as one of their big acts since October ... but a rep for Drake tells TMZ something came up, and now he won't be able to attend.
"Unfortunately, due to scheduling complications, Drake will no longer be performing ... [he's] currently in the middle of his nationwide 'Would You Like A Tour?' and sincerely apologizes to his fans that he can’t be there."
According Drake's website, he's not scheduled to perform anywhere on Dec. 6th ... though he does have a show the following day in Missouri.
So, why the sudden conflict? We asked the rep ... but didn't get an explanation.
Don't fear, Grammy fans ... Lorde, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have all been added to the lineup within the last 24 hours.

12/5/2013 1:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Former South African President Nelson Mandela -- famous for his fight to end the racist policy of apartheid -- died today at the age of 95.
Mandela's health had been in steep decline over the past few months -- he was hospitalized on June 8 for kidney and liver problems and had been on life support. Doctors also said he had a recurring lung infection.
The President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, had said Mandela was "well looked after" and "comfortable" during his final days.
Mandela became an international figure during his 27 years in prison for conspiring to overthrow South Africa's government. He was released in 1990, and won the Nobel Peace Prize in '93.
In 1994 Mandela helped orchestrate South Africa's first multi-racial election -- and became the country's first Black president.
Over the years, Mandela's been portrayed by several major actors including Sidney Poitier, Morgan Freeman, Dennis Haysbert, Danny Glover and Idris Elba.
He also made a cameo as a teacher in Spike Lee's 1992 flick "Malcolm X."

Jameis Winston's Friends
We Watched Her Perform Oral On Him
She Was 'More Than Willing'
12/5/2013 12:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
One of the men who was with Jameis Winston on the night of the alleged rape told police he WITNESSED the accuser perform oral sex on the Florida State QB ... and she seemed "more than willing."
TMZ Sports obtained documents which show that Jameis' pal Chris Casher told police he went to Potbelly's bar with JW and another friend, Ron Darby, on the night of the alleged rape.
Casher says the accuser, a blonde woman, was not drunk when she left the bar with Jameis and when they got to his apartment, they went into JW's bedroom together.
Chris says, "Since the door was partially open, I looked through the opening and we could see her giving Jameis oral sex. They had only been in the room a few minutes before I witnessed her giving him oral sex."
"Jameis was facing the door with his hands on his hips while she was in front of him on her knees. I witnessed them both take each other's clothes off and lay on the bed."
"Jameis and the blonde female began having intercourse."
Chris says .. "as a joke" he busted into the room to embarrass Jameis ... but the woman shooed him out of the room, closed the door and turned off the lights for more privacy.
Chris says he and his other buddy Ron could hear the two having sex.
The woman eventually claimed Jameis raped her. The State Attorney eventually decided the claim could not be proved.
Paul Walker Death
Image in Burning Porsche Video is NOT Paul
12/5/2013 11:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Paul Walker did NOT make a final desperate attempt to escape the burning wreckage -- and the image seen in video shot right after the crash is definitely NOT Paul ... TMZ has learned.
There had been rampant speculation and buzz on the Internet that a shadowy figure seen around 23 seconds into the video of the burning Porsche Carrera GT ... was Walker trying to get out of the vehicle, but sources connected to the investigation now say it just isn't so ... for several reasons.
First, the sources tell us that, based on photographs of the wreckage ... Paul's body was pinned in an area of the car that makes it clear he couldn't have been flailing outside the vehicle.
Also ...we're told that based on the injuries he suffered, Paul died within a nanosecond of impact, and therefore it's impossible for the image in the video to be him.
It's not clear how long after impact the video starts, but clearly more than a nanosecond.
As for what the image really is -- we're told law enforcement has watched the video, and based on evidence from the crash site ... it appears to be a part of the car's roof burning.

The Australian Federal Police tell us ... a 19-year-old man was detained back on Nov. 24 ... but was released after getting a stern warning for using "inappropriate language." He reportedly swore at the officers.
Sources connected with the incident tell us Justin was the one with the potty mouth.
The AFP says a security check turned up an unknown amount of pot on a 23-year-old man in Justin's entourage. The suspect was released, but got a ticket for allegedly importing drugs.
Sources close to Justin tell us the suspect had a disposable vaporizer -- basically an electronic device to smoke marijuana -- which had residue in it.
We're told an attorney for the suspect appeared in court today, and paid the fine.
It's been one helluva tour -- as we first told you ... one of JB's bodyguards was arrested last month in Hawaii after allegedly attacking a photographer on the beach -- and was also caught on video attacking a photog in Sydney.
Maybe Bieber is more rock 'n' roll than we thought.

... Cops Say
12/5/2013 9:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The woman who claims she was raped by Florida State QB Jameis Winston says they were boozing at a local bar before the incident ... and she had 5 or 6 shots, this according to police documents.
According to a search warrant affidavit, the woman told cops she "began to feel the effects of the drinks" and was then whisked to a nearby apartment, where she was raped.
According to the affidavit, “[the accuser] then remembers entering an apartment on the ground floor. She remembers the male taking off her clothes then engaging in penile/vaginal sex with her as she told him to stop and tried to fight him off.”
Cops said in the affidavit ... at some point during the incident, another black male with dreadlocks came into the room and told the man to stop ... at which point he took the accuser into a nearby bathroom where he "completed the act."
Cops say the woman contacted police within an hour of the alleged rape -- but claim the accuser was so drunk at the time, she was "unable to tell a detective where the incident occurred."
She had only "hazy recollections of details after that," the cops said.
It wasn't until roughly 5 weeks after the incident that the woman first identified Winston as her attacker.

12/5/2013 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources say Lindsay's been living in the $16,000 a month pad while shooting her docu-series for Oprah Winfrey's cable network -- so the apartment doubles as a set for the show.
We're told ... Lindsay's locked into a 2-year lease on the place ... so she might as well get comfortable.

According to the Lovejoy Police Department, 32-year-old Amy Seiber was busted during her shift on November 1 ... after a customer called 911, complaining she had found a half-smoked blunt in her cheeseburger.

A rep for Wendy's tells TMZ, "Obviously the employee broke the rules and did not follow proper food handling steps ... We are deeply sorry that this incident occurred.” The rep says the franchisee is working out a favorable solution with the customer, including paying her medical bills.
