Rick Ross I'm Gonna Be Bigger Than Hanukkah

23 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

Rick Ross just pulled a John Lennon ... pumping up his new album by likening it to the Festival of Lights. Shalom? 

Ross' "Black Market" drops this Friday, just two days before Hanukkah starts -- a fact he was clearly aware of when we got him in NYC, and asked if he had any predictions for the album's success.

His answer won't get him invited to any menorah lightings next week, but his delivery is pretty funny.

Move over 1966 Lennon ... you've got company now.

1201-david-yolanda-foster-tmz-getty-01'Real Housewives' star Yolanda Foster and mega music producer David Foster are calling it quits after 4 years of marriage.

The couple's been together for a total of 9 years, and say, "During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues."

The joint statement to is a clear reference to Yolanda's battle with Lyme disease over the last 3 years. Bella and Gigi Hadid's mom and stepdad tied the knot back on 11/11/11. This was her 2nd marriage, and David's 4th.

People first reported the break-up.

It's unclear if either's actually filed divorce papers. They never used the D word in their statement, but added ... "We are grateful for the years we've spent together and believe wholeheartedly that we did our best."



Leo DiCaprio NOT Raped By Bear ... FOX Confirms

1201-leo-dicaprio-bear-rape-scene-not-in-movie-GETTY-TMZ-02Leonardo DiCaprio is NOT raped by a bear in a scene from his latest movie -- that's the bizarre statement FOX Studios just released. 

FOX felt compelled to shut down widespread Internet rumors about a controversial scene in "The Revenant" where Leo is attacked by a bear. For some reason (we haven't seen the movie) someone thought the bear raped the star ... twice.

A spokesperson for FOX told EW, "The bear in the film is a female who attacks [Leo] because she feels he might be threatening her cubs ... there is clearly no rape scene with a bear."

Case closed. No bear rape. It's still unclear why anyone saw the attack as sexual in its nature.

Yes, Leo wants an Oscar, but we're guessing he doesn't want it THAT badly.

1201-mark-zukerberg-baby-facebook-01Most dads hand out cigars ... Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg celebrated the birth of his daughter Max on Tuesday by handing out a freakin' fortune to charity. 

Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla, announced the birth on his FB page with a heartfelt letter to their newborn. In it, they say she gives hope for the future, a future they hope includes "advancing human potential and promoting equality." 

To do his part, Mark and Priscilla pledged to give away 99% of their FB stock -- worth $45 billion right now -- over the course of their lives. He doesn't specify who will get the dough, but says it'll go to people who improve "this world for the next generation."

It's no empty promise either ... Zuck informed the Securities and Exchange Commission that he'll be unloading the stock, so it's legit.

Marvin Gaye's Son My Baby Mama Wants Some of My 'Blurred Lines' Money!

12/1/2015 1:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Marvin Gaye III's cut of that $7.4 million judgment from the "Blurred Lines" case might be a little light ... thanks to his baby mama.

According to court docs, Gaye III owes Deanna Holly $62,564.44 in back child support ... and L.A. county stepped in to file a lien against that "Blurred Lines" judgment. The move ensures that when Marvin's checks start coming in, he'll have to fork over the owed dough to Holly. 

Back in March, a jury ruled the mega hit "Blurred Lines" infringed on the copyright of Marvin Gaye's classic "Got to Give It Up."

The $7.4 mil will be split among several Gaye kids and others, but now we know where some of Marvin's cash is going.

Master P Defends Himself in Court ... Showdown with Wife

12/1/2015 11:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1201-master-p-sonya-miller-tmz-instagram-01Master P was a true No Limit soldier Tuesday morning in an L.A. courtroom, where he marched in without an attorney to face off with his estranged wife over a restraining order.

TMZ broke the story ... Sonya Miller accused Master P of being verbally and physically abusive. In court, she went even further ... getting on the stand and telling the judge she'd heard that Master P was going to put a hit out on her.

The hearing got off to a rocky start when Master P strolled into court sans attorney, but with several of his kids ... 90 minutes late! The judge told him the children needed to wait outside, and then scolded P for his tardiness.

Master P said he didn't even know the hearing was going down, until TMZ called him about the restraining order. Things got more heated when Sonya interrupted a convo between P and the judge ... and Sonya was an emotional wreck while testifying. 

They're on a break now, but they'll be back in court this afternoon.

'Married To Medicine' Star Accused of Trying to Mow Down Neighbor

12/1/2015 10:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1201-heavenly-kimes-getty-01Dr. Heavenly Kimes -- a dentist on Bravo's "Married to Medicine" -- tried to drill one of her neighbors ...with her Bentley, but Kimes says the guy attacked her ride with a hammer.

The altercation went down last week in Conyers, GA where Dr. Kimes and Grady Jarrett both live. According to Jarrett ... he was stopping traffic in front of his house while a bulldozer unloaded in his driveway, but when he put his hand up Kimes just kept going and "tried to run him over."

He admits hitting her window in anger as she passed him, but says the good doc came back for more ... attempting to hit him multiple times. 

Dr. Kimes told cops it went down differently -- that she never saw Jarrett in the street, and was shocked when he hit her window and cussed at her. She says Jarrett also came at her with a hammer and hit the car.

Cops responded, but didn't see any damage to her Bentley ... and couldn't find any unbiased witnesses to back up Jarrett's version -- so, no arrests were made.

12/1/2015 9:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

5 Seconds of Summer broke some big news to us about the band's future -- and no, we're not only talking about Calum Hood's rumored departure ... we're talking The Wiggles!!

The guys were getting mobbed by fans at LAX on Monday when our photog, Charlie -- who's Australian like 5SOS -- popped a question about the true kings of the Down Under music scene.

Yes, The Wiggles do kids music, but they've been at it for nearly 25 years! So the guys sounded like they'd consider a collabo -- but they said it in a very 5SOS way. Check it out.

Oh, and don't worry ... bassist Calum Hood also addressed whether that cryptic tweet means he's thinking about pulling a Zayn Malik.

But seriously, a "Hot Potato" duet would be awesome, right?

Kylie Jenner Now Serving in ... Assless Chaps!!

12/1/2015 7:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news


Kylie Jenner is taking full advantage of the whole "I'm 18 now" thing by flaunting her whole ass ... professionally, of course.

Kylie did a racy latex-laden spread for Interview Magazine's December-January issue.

Things we've immediately gleaned from the article -- she could be one helluva waitress, or a dominatrix ... and she LOVES ice cream. Okay, we just looked at the pics.

There's a debate in our office over whether she's wearing chaps or leggings, but we ultimately realized ... it doesn't freakin' matter! 


It might not break the Internet ... but Kim Kardashian's gotta be proud of her little sis, nonetheless.

They grow up so fast.
