Kanye West Time to Play Mansion Expansion

12/11/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1209_kanye_west_home_cunstruction_tmz_x17Kanye West's recovery is giving him time to refocus on his true work of art -- the former mansion he and Kim are expanding into a mini-Versailles of the Valley. 

Sources close to Kanye tells us he's been working closely over the last week with contractors at the Hidden Hills, CA pad. The most recent project was expanding the master bedroom.

We're told 'Ye blew out an entire wall to add on a space that looks way bigger than the average NYC apartment -- and he's not done yet.

1210-kim-kanye-bdrm-addition-tmz-01We reported ... Kanye's currently making new music from a temporary studio in their Bel-Air home -- and we're told the new mega mansion is being prepped for installation of a fully equipped music lab.

As for the decor -- we know Yeezy's fond of Rick Owens' furniture, and you'll recall it was one of Rick's exhibits that drew him out in public this week. We're told there's a good chance 'Ye was window shopping for his huge new space.

Right now it's a just over 20,000 sq. ft and growing. It's unclear if the couple has a projected end date for construction.

Floyd Mayweather Vegas Nightclub Sues You KO'd Your Own Bday Party!

12/11/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1209-floyd-mayweather-tmz-02Floyd Mayweather was gonna make $35,000 for 90 minutes of work at a Vegas nightclub ... but blew it off because he didn't feel like leaving Europe ... this according to a new lawsuit. 

Mayweather's being sued by the SLS Hotel in Vegas -- which says they had a deal with Mayweather to host his 39th birthday party at their Foxtail Nightclub on February 20. 

All Floyd had to do was show up ... host the party and do the red carpet -- and bam, easy $35,000. 

The SLS says he even got half the money in advance. 

Problem is ... Floyd allegedly bailed at the last minute so he could "stay in Europe for his birthday."

Obviously, the club was pissed ... and demanded the advance back, which Floyd has allegedly refused to fork over.

The SLS is suing for the money back -- plus additional damages.

We reached out to Floyd for comment -- so far, no word back.

Apollo Nida 1st Pics of Fiancée From Prison Photo Shoot!

12/11/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1207-apollo-nida-married-in-jail-tmz-02Apollo Nida and his new chick celebrated their engagement by posing like a couple of kids at prom ... while he's doing hard time in a federal prison, and TMZ got the pics.

Nida slipped into his best prisoner khakis this past November during a visit from his gf-turned-fiancée -- and smiled for the camera in front of one of those backdrops you'd see at a photo studio. It's a service provided by the prison. Who knew?

As we reported, Apollo proposed to the mystery woman a few months ago. We're told 'RHOA' producers want to keep her name under wraps because she'll be part of the new season. She'll be on camera and he'll be on the phone, obviously.

1207-apollo-nida-married-in-jail-tmz-03One thing missing from the romantic shots -- an engagement ring.

Not to worry, we're told she went back for a visit last week, and this time she left with this non-sparkler, which appears to be a hair-tie/paper towel makeshift ring.

Imagine the insurance premium.



Jerry Heller Nephew Wants to Breathe New Life Into N.W.A. Suit

12/11/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1208_jerry_heller_soc_tmzJerry Heller's nephew wants a judge to let him create and run an estate for his late uncle ... purely for the purpose of taking down Ice Cube and Dr. Dre in court.

Lawyers for Terry Heller filed docs Tuesday asking he be named executor of Jerry's will -- all because he plans to pursue the defamation suit against everyone behind "Straight Outta Compton."

Sources close to Terry tell TMZ ... all of Jerry's assets were already put into a private trust before his death, and the only reason he's doing this is to change the name of the plaintiff from Jerry to Jerry's estate ... 'cause dead guys can't sue.

You'll recall ... Jerry sued Dre, Cube and other producers of 'Compton' for $110 mil last year, claiming the film falsely made him look like "the bad guy." A judge has tossed most of the case since then, but there's still 2 questionable scenes on the table.

Looks like Jerry's fight to defend his name will live on ... even after him.

Swedish House Mafia Nanny Sues DJ and Wife ... I Was Your Slave in Sweden!!

12/11/2016 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1206-steve-isabella-tmz-instagramOne of the guys from Swedish House Mafia tricked a nanny into moving to Sweden and treated her like "human chattel" before firing her ... if you buy the nanny's account in a lawsuit.

SHM founding member Steve Angello and his wife, Isabel Adrian, hired the nanny for $50k/year and convinced her to leave L.A. and relocate to Sweden with the family ... according to docs.

The nanny says she was promised her schedule and workload caring for the couple's 2 daughters would remain the same, but things were very different in the land of Ikea. In the suit, she describes putting in 24 hour days the first 3 weeks, and living in a single hotel room with the kids.

According to the suit ... the nanny spoke up for herself after a month, and was promptly fired for complaining. She's suing the couple for lying about job duties, failing to pay overtime and wrongful termination. 

We reached out to the couple, but haven't heard back.

Donald Trump Presidential Football Fan Attends Army-Navy Game

12/10/2016 12:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump just arrived at the annual Army-Navy Football Game ... and to say he did so to a thunderous applause would be an understatement. 

The President-Elect showed up midway through the first quarter -- he's got seats in a private booth with a protective glass shield -- and fans went nuts. It's unclear who Trump's pulling for, but the Army team prepped him a personal locker ... so maybe they've got a leg up. 

1210-trump-protected-seats-getty-01Either way ... Army's gonna need any and all support they can get, the team's dropped 14 straight to Navy.

Jared Leto Fire Trucks Race To Hollywood Hills Home

12/10/2016 9:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1209_jared-leto-house_tmz_wmOne of Jared Leto's L.A. homes was the scene of a panic Friday evening that had firefighters searching the grounds. 

LAFD says it got a call to the residence in Laurel Canyon because someone smelled smoke. We're told everyone inside the house had been evacuated by the time firefighters arrived and started going through the 50,000 sq. ft complex.

Good news for Jared -- who was home at the time, we're told -- firefighters found nothing burning.  

No fire. No damage. No messy insurance claims. Win-win-win.


Kristin Chenoweth My Boobs Behaved During 'Hairspray'

12/10/2016 9:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

NBC censors can chill ... Kristin Chenoweth is reassuring them, the FCC and prudish viewers about how free her hooters did or didn't get during "Hairspray Live" the other night.

The day after the show aired there were a bunch of reports Kristin might have had a wardrobe malfunction right before the final bows. Well, we got her at LAX and asked if her girls tried to jump ship from the low cut pink dress she was rocking.

She denies pulling a Janet Jackson ... in a very Kristin way, of course. But more importantly here -- Kristin's boobs have names!

Donald Trump Drop 'Apprentice' Talk ... I'm Spending 'Zero Time' On It

Breaking News

1210-donald-trump-tmz-01Donald Trump is trying to shut down all the buzz about him being an executive producer of "Celebrity Apprentice" while he's in the White House.

The Prez elect said, "I have NOTHING to do with The Apprentice except for fact that I conceived it with Mar B & have a big stake in it. Will devote ZERO TIME!" 

Trump's tweet echoed exactly what TMZ reported -- back in September he told Harvey Levin his involvement was purely financial.

Trump also singled out CNN for reporting he'd be working on the reality show, dismissing it as "FAKE NEWS!"

On a more amusing note, during a rally in Baton Rouge ... he questioned the honor Time Magazine gave him this week. Clearly, there's still a little campaign trail Trump left in the future President.
