Khloe Kardashian Date Night with French Montana At the Strip Joint

2/9/2016 7:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Khloe Kardashian could have a future at the L.A. County Fair as a professional juggler, because she hikes with a husband, sometimes dates a basketball player, and hangs with her ex-boyfriend ... all at the same time.

Khloe and ex-bf French Montana hit up Ace of Diamonds strip club Monday night in L.A. It's interesting ... Ace of Diamonds may have caused a rift in Khloe's relationship with James Harden after he partied there last month ... she seemed none too pleased he was there, posting on Instagram the same night, "Stay away from people who make you feel like you are hard to love."

We haven't seen Khloe and James together for a while, but they all seem to come back ... eventually.

DMX Not Breathing, No Pulse

2/9/2016 7:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209-dmx-tmz-01update_graphic_red_bar8:30 AM PT -- DMX denies taking any powder or drugs. He says all he remembers is having shortness of breath after suffering bronchitis for a couple of days.

A family member says X asked for his inhaler (for asthma) right before he fell unconscious. They were not able to get it to him in time. He's still in the hospital.update_grey_gray_barDMX was at death's door Monday night, not breathing, without a pulse and the signs point to an overdose.

It's a lot worse than the story DMX's people were putting out ... that he suffered an asthma attack.  

Yonkers cops responded to a call about an unconscious male at a Ramada Inn just after 6 PM. We're told when cops arrived DMX was on the ground in the parking lot next to a parked car. Cops quickly determined he was lifeless, not breathing with no pulse and immediately began CPR.

After a minute of CPR X's pulse came back.  

A witness on scene told cops DMX had ingested some sort of powder before lapsing into unconsciousness. Cops gave him Narcan, an antidote to narcotic ODs. DMX became "semi-conscious" and was taken to the hospital.

We're told DMX appears to be in stable condition and at this time, no criminal charges are expected.

Short story ... cops saved his life. 

Martin Shkreli & RZA Sued You Put My Art on Front Street ... Now Pay Me!

2/9/2016 7:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209-martin-rza-instagram-tmz-02A die hard Wu-Tang Clan fan's artwork ended up in the band's $2 million album, but he's not happy about it -- he's suing Martin Shkreli and RZA.

Jason Koza says he submitted 9 hand drawn portraits of Wu-Tang members to be posted on a blog called Wu Disciples, but was pleasantly surprised when the group's producer Cilvaringz contacted him in 2014 to say he was working on the "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" record.

Koza says he never heard another word from Cilvaringz or anyone affiliated with the Wu, and then in 2015 he found out the single copy, one-of-a-kind album was completed, and included a leather-bound book with copies of his portraits.

The final dagger came when Shkreli -- who dropped the $2 mil for 'Shaolin' -- allowed Vice to post 3 of his portraits ... Raekwon, ODB and Inspecta Deck .. in a January article. 

Koza feels like he's been royally screwed and wants Shkreli, RZA and Cilvaringz to pay up.

Ciara Sues Future Calling Me a Bad Mother Is Gonna Cost You $15 MILLION!

2/8/2016 10:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0208-ciara-future-TWITTER-TMZ-01Ciara and Future's war just got way more heated -- she's suing him for allegedly blasting her mothering skills and attacking her relationship with Russell Wilson ... all to publicize his music.

In the suit ... obtained by TMZ, Ciara calls out Future for a radio interview in which he discussed a now infamous photo of Wilson pushing Ciara and Future's son in his stroller. Future said, "She probably set him [Russell] up. You letting them catch that photo. Leave my son out of all the publicity stunts."

Ciara points out several other interviews, but she's also pissed about her baby daddy's Twitter rant in January when Future said, "This bitch got control problems ... I gotta go through lawyers to see baby future ... the f***ery for 15k a month."

In the suit, Ciara says she goes out of her way to make sure Future sees their son -- and says they've had at least 19 visitations (some spanning several days) since December 2014.

Just last week TMZ got video of Future and his son in L.A. while Ciara was on vacay with Wilson. We thought it was a sign they were settling their differences, but that's clearly not the case.

Ciara believes Future's comments were said with malice. She's suing for slander and libel, wants all his nasty tweets deleted, and wants him blocked from saying anything about private family matters regarding baby Future ... in the future.

Check out the video below ... a process server was scoping out Future's SUV at LAX as he arrived, and apparently served him with the lawsuit.  The process server was also carrying pics of Future so she could ID him.  Future never got out of the van and left the airport.

Multiple sources connected with the singer tell us, Madonna believes Guy has set no rules for 15-year-old Rocco and he's living dangerously ... not enrolled in school, hanging out in skate parks, smoking and essentially doing anything he wants. 

We're told the animosity runs deep between Madonna and Guy ... she feels strongly their son needs structure and he's unable and unwilling to provide it.

As we reported, Rocco continues to live with Guy in London and they have a court date next month in NYC to square off on custody.

Lamar Odom Miraculous Recovery He's Back!!!

2/9/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0208_LAMAR_ODOM_TMZLamar Odom is doing so well, if you didn't know he was at death's door in October, you would never know he suffered 12 strokes and was unable to walk or speak. 

As we reported, Lamar went hiking with Kim and Khloe over the weekend. The doctors never thought they would see the day. But even more surprising ... Lamar's cognitive functions have significantly returned ... he's able to process thoughts, speak them and carry on conversations.

Lamar had significant problems recognizing people -- even family members -- for several months after he was rushed to the hospital. But now his recall is back.  

We're told Lamar's not completely back. He's still "a bit slow," and has memory lapses and sometimes has problems speaking. But the issues are subtle.

As for the hike, we're told his goal is to be able to run again. He's not there, but he's determined and believes he still has a shot at playing basketball again.

We're told Lamar's trajectory is so miraculous, he has a shot at living independently in a matter of months.

EXCLUSIVE

1215-dmx-tmz-01DMX is currently recovering in the hospital after collapsing from what he believes was a nasty asthma attack ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to DMX tell us he was outside his room at the Ramada Yonkers in New York Monday evening when he started complaining of shortness of breath and pain in his chest.

We're told the rapper has a history of asthma -- so his entourage sprung to look for his inhaler -- but it was too late ... he had collapsed to the floor.

We're told an ambulance was called, and X was transported to a nearby hospital ... where he's currently receiving breathing treatments.

Blac Chyna & Amber Rose $5k Reasons We're Different

2/9/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0208-amber-rose-blac-chyna-flyer-host-event-01Blac Chyna and Amber Rose are headed to Toronto Takeover for the NBA All-Star Weekend to host a huge event -- though only one is returning with more dough than the other.  

Sources close to the event say the two friends were hired to co-host the party at the Stadium club this Friday night -- yet Amber is pulling in $30,000 while Blac gets smaller pockets with $25,000. The $5,000 difference is because Amber Rose is a bigger draw. 

Although Blac will probably not bring her man Rob Kardashian -- we're told the promoters didn't want to shell out the $75,000 to $100,000 they think he would've wanted. 

Tix for the event range from $50 to $3,500 -- but there's a $10,000 VIP baller rate not even sold to the general public. The VIP package is only open to athletes or celebs because they'll be the ones next to Blac and Amber. 

$55,000 to co-host one night? And by co-host, we mean stand there, look pretty and party. Sounds like a win-win for both Rose and Chyna.
