Paris Hilton

Glow Sticks & Diapers ...

Let's Rave, Kids!!

8/31/2015 4:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0831_paris_rave_launch2If Mother Teresa knew how to spin records, it would've looked like this -- Paris Hilton giving underprivileged kids what they really need ... a face full of foam and sick beats.

Paris packed Club Amnesia in Ibiza -- where she's doing her Summer residency -- with dozens of children who got to party their tiny little faces off. She teamed up with APNEEF (a local center for kids with disabilities) to throw the bash. We're told they raised $100k for the group.

If the foam cannon, strobe lights, and glow sticks weren't enough ... the mini-ravers also got soft drinks and games.

Don't worry, the kid session ended at 7 PM -- y'know ... before things get REALLY weird in Ibiza.

0831-chris-brown-tmz-02One of Chris Brown's fans is blaming the singer for the gunshot wound he suffered during a Bay Area concert back in January.

Paul Briley filed a lawsuit against Brown for the shooting that went down at San Jose's Capricorn Bash. In the suit, Briley says Brown failed to provide enough security.

TMZ broke the story ... 5 people were injured when the shots rang out around 1:30 AM.

Briley says he sustained permanent injuries. He points out that Brown had multiple violent incidents at concerts before the San Jose show ... and therefore, should have had more security.

WWE Shooting

Cop Guns Down

Dangerous, Obsessed Fan

Exclusive Details

0831-wwe-shooting-TWITTER-01A deputy opened fire on a man outside the WWE's training center in Orlando -- seriously injuring the guy ... who has a history of bizarre incidents at the WWE.

An Orange County Sheriff's deputy confronted Armando Montalvo at the WWE Performance Center on Monday afternoon. The situation reportedly turned violent, and that's when the deputy fired. 

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, the wrestling org. got a restraining order against Montalvo earlier this month after a string of violent run-ins at the facility. Earlier this summer, the WWE says Montalvo spread his feces and urine on the building. He even posted video of himself mixing the human waste and reduced fat milk in a bucket.

On multiple occasions ... he allegedly showed up in a wrestling outfit, banged on windows, and threatened to kick everyone's ass because they wouldn't hire him. One of the times he was swinging a large chain, and police had to subdue him at gunpoint.

Just 5 days ago, Montalvo posted a video of himself outside the building saying he was going to go ask for a job. He said, "What's the worst they can say?"

Montalvo had to have surgery after Monday's shooting.

Justin Bieber

Sobbing Was Real

Jitters Got Best of Me

8/31/2015 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber wasn't crying crocodile tears ... he really did get choked up and overcome with emotion when his VMA gig ended, and he's blaming his nerves for the sobfest.

Sources at the award show tell TMZ ... the Biebs was super nervous before his big "What Do You Mean?" performance ... because it's been five years since he last sang at the VMAs. 

Although Justin included a message about his "journey" -- with clear religious undertones -- we're told his break down was more about a sense of relief that he got through the comeback performance.

Justin recovered just fine from his butterflies though -- one video posted on Shots showed him onstage at Henry's singing his new hit again. No tears this time.

Kanye West

Hosting VMAs On The Table

8/31/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0831-kanye-vmas-TMZ-01Next year's VMAs could become a 10-hour ordeal, because we found out MTV is considering Kanye as its host.

VMA sources tell TMZ ... MTV was thrilled with Kanye's 12-minute diatribe, despite the fact he brutally trashed the network and awards shows in general. As it was put to us, Kanye hosting next year is "on the table." After all, who woulda thunk Miley? 

Here's how much MTV loved it ... we're told they only allotted him 2 minutes, but people in the control room were told to stand down, because it was crazy entertaining.   

We're told after Kanye left the stage, an MTV big wig followed him to his dressing room and gushed about the spectacle.

Kanye West

Over a Barrel ...

On Presidential Domain Name

8/31/2015 10:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0831-kanye-president-VMAs-GETTY-01Kanye West may have just made a young man a fortune by announcing his possible run for President.

Tramall Ferguson registered "KanyeForPresident.com" back in April on a whim ... thinking maybe one day Yeezy would make it in the oval office.

The 24-year-old recent graduate said he registered a few other domains, including "PeterGriffinForPresident.com." 

After Kanye's announcement at the MTV VMAs ... Tramal's phone is blowing up with huge offers to own the domain ... upwards of $80k.

0831-kanye-president-domain-SUB-INSTAGRAM-01Tramal says he's holding out ... waiting for Kanye to call.  He wouldn't say how much he'd charge, but he was clear ... Kanye's not getting it for free.

It'll take a lot more than a pair of those Yeezys.

No Jail Time ...

Banned From Bev Hills Hotel

EXCLUSIVE

0831-kim-richards-tmz-01

No more fab brunches for Kim Richards at the Beverly Hills Hotel -- but she also won't be dining in county jail ... after striking a plea deal for her drunken arrest.

Prosecutors offered the following deal in court this morning: 3 years probation, 52 AA classes, and 30 days community labor. Kim wasn't in court, but her attorney accepted the deal on one condition -- that she instead get community service.

Her attorney says Kim can't do labor tasks -- such as freeway cleanup duty -- due to a foot injury. Kim also has to stay away from the Bev Hills Hotel -- where she was busted back in April for an alleged drunken rampage. 

Prosecutors said Kim needs medical docs to back up her foot claim. If both sides can hammer out that part of the deal by Sept. 14 ... she'll avoid making another trip to jail.

Trick Daddy

Bankrupt!

Baby Mamas Are Expensive

8/31/2015 9:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0831-trick-daddy-getty-01Trick Daddy has filed for bankruptcy because, according to him ... he’s got next to ZERO money in the bank, and his baby mama bills keep piling up.

The Miami rapper filed for Chapter 11 saying he’s got about $430k in assets – which sounds decent, except he's also $645k in the red! Including: $34,837 child support to one mother, $22,282 to another,  $290k in back taxes, and $280k for his first mortgage.

Interestingly, Trick Daddy says he still makes about $14,500 a month -- most of it off music publishing and club gigs -- and doesn't live a baller lifestyle. Hell, TD says he only has $550 in clothes and jewelry!

So fiscally responsible. Outside of baby mamas and the IRS.

Miley Cyrus

Have My Joint!

Forget I Hosted VMAs

8/31/2015 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus shared her DNA with photographers backstage at the VMAs -- via the joint she passed around the room.

'Mary Jane' Cyrus kicked off her post-VMA meeting with the media by lighting up and passing it to reporters and photogs -- several of whom gladly indulged.

No doubt, the ganja gift was a great way to soften them up BEFORE they fired off questions about her hosting performance -- or Nicki Minaj.

Of course, that gift came doused in her saliva ... if you're into that.
