Dave Chappelle

Crowd Demands Refunds

For Slurry, Half Baked Show

4/25/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Dave Chappelle proved even comedic geniuses have off nights ... because hundreds of angry fans are demanding refunds after a Detroit performance many are calling a drunken catastrophe.

According to multiple people in the crowd during Thursday night's 9:30 show at the Fillmore ... a seemingly wasted Chappelle took the stage an hour late (mostly due to the crowd still being seated), and told very few jokes. Instead, he sat quietly smoking, rambling, and slurring his speech.

In this video you can hear someone in the crowd yell, "Let's hear some of the act!" Dave responds, "Well sir, it's a little late for that. Right now I've gotta get off the stage because it's 2:00 in the morning."

The crowd quickly reminds him it was only 1 AM.

Now fans are ripping Dave on Facebook, calling the show ... "A waste of time and money" ... "more like a press conference" ... and "HORRIBLE." Fans dropped anywhere from $50 to about $240 for tickets, and although many are demanding refunds ... a Fillmore spokesperson tells us they're not responsible for artists' content.

In other words ... tough luck, crowd.

As for Dave ... a rep tells us, "Out of the 50 shows on the tour, Thursday was definitely not his best set On the flip side, the incident inspired some additional sharp-witted material and (Friday) he came back with a vengeance."

Chris Brown

Battle Over Royalty's Birth Certificate

EXCLUSIVE

0424-chris-brown-king-ba-vs-battle-royalty-INSTAGRAM-TMZ-01

Chris Brown is real upset he's not getting credit where it matters ... on his daughter's birth certificate.

Sources connected to Brown tell us, he found out recently the "father" on baby Royalty's birth certificate is listed as Brazil Riesling, aka King Ba.  

TMZ broke the story, 8 months after Royalty was born, DNA tests revealed Chris was the papa.

He's trying to establish a relationship with his daughter -- even trying to get baby mama Nia Guzman to move to L.A. -- but his efforts have been thwarted by Ba, who still considers himself the dad. Ba, who is still with Nia, has been taunting Chris with pics of himself and the baby.

Chris now has his lawyer in the act, negotiating with Nia and Ba to change the birth certificate to list him as the biological father.  If push comes to shove, it will end up before a judge.

Bruce Jenner riveted the nation this week, while Ariana and Big Sean hurled accusations at each other. So we gotta ask ... 

Bruce Jenner

Kim Had a Breakthrough

Thanks to Kanye

4/24/2015 7:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


ABC Breaking US News | US News Videos

Bruce Jenner says the most supportive family member by far in his transition journey has been Kim Kardashian ... and it's all thanks to Kanye West.

It's really an incredible story ... how Kanye sat Kim down and explained how being true to yourself is everything in life.

Diane Sawyer's special is just amazing.  Bruce's words are moving, thought-changing and it has to be the biggest moment ever for a lot of people who are really struggling.

Bruce Jenner

I've Always Had the Soul of a Woman

ABC Breaking US News | US News Videos

It's some of the most compelling TV in memory ... Bruce Jenner tells Diane Sawyer about the torment of living his life as an Olympic hero while living what he says is a lie.

Jenner scoffs at the notion this is a Kardashian stunt ... making it clear the notion of changing gender for publicity is absurd.

Jenner says, as we reported, this is the last time he will be known as Bruce Jenner, although he is not revealing his new name.

It is emotional, eye-opening and, frankly, amazing. You gotta see it.

Chickadee to Mama June

I'm Pregnant!

And This Time I Call the Shots

4/25/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Anna Chickadee Cardwell Pregnant AgainAnna Chickadee Cardwell is pregnant ... but this time around grandma won't be in charge.

Chickadee tells TMZ, she and husband Michael are 6 weeks pregnant. If Mama June reads this it will be the first time she'll learn she's going to be a grandma 2 times over.

June was calling the shots after Anna's first baby, Kaitlyn, was born, but this time June will be allowed to visit when Anna's around, but that's it. 

Anna says she doesn't trust her mom's judgment anymore, because when she was younger, June would leave her with various people for long periods of time. One of them was child molester Mark McDaniel

Anna says the only men who she'll trust with the new baby will be her husband and Uncle Poodle.

But Anna knows the value of a buck ... she says that there's one thing Mama June will come in handy for ... diaper coupons. 

The woman loves a good bargain.

Drag Dad Is Really a Deadbeat Dad

... Baby Mama Claims

4/25/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0424-tyra-sanchez-YOUTUBE-01"Rupaul's Drag Race" champ Tyra Sanchez loved talking on the show about being a good dad, and he's even producing a documentary about it -- but his baby mama claims his actions prove otherwise.

Sanchez's baby mama Cynthia recently hit him with child support papers for his 9-year-old son, Jeremiah. According to the docs, he has to turn over his financial records, so the court can figure out how much support he needs to pay.

According to our sources, Sanchez is currently paying zero support and has no custody of Jeremiah. We're told he only sees his son roughly once a month.

In 2012, Sanchez started shooting "Drag Dad" ... a documentary about his relationship with his son, but it's unclear if he's completed the project.

We reached out to Tyra, but ... no comment.

0424-bruce-jenner-interview-04While the rest of Hollywood was praising Bruce Jenner as a "hero" and "brave" for talking openly about his sexual identity, Kim Kardashian's ex-husband Kris Humphries took what appears to be a direct shot at Bruce and the family.

Right in the middle of the west coast airing of Bruce's interview with Diane Sawyer ... as Bruce was discussing how his decision to go public has impacted his family ... Kris went to Twitter and wrote:

"Man, I'm glad I got out when I did. #Gottadoyou."

Diddy

$250,000 Bet with Mark Wahlberg

Over Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

4/24/2015 5:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wanna see a couple of rich guys demonstrate their richness in ridiculous fashion? 

Well, here's Diddy and Mark Wahlberg making a $250,000 bet on the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight ... like it ain't no thing. 

Diddy's got Floyd. Mark's got PacMan.

The best part of the video is how casually these guys throw around their dough. In fact, the bet started at $100,000 ... but Mark wanted to know, "Why so little?"

For the record, the man who's wagering the MOST on the fight isn't even in the video ... it's 50 Cent -- who says he'll be plunking down $1.6 MILLION on Floyd.

Dan Bilzerian

Defaces NASCAR Vehicle

EXCLUSIVE

0424-dan-bilzerian-nascar-TMZ-01Dan Bilzerian is new face of NASCAR ... well, at least for one race ... 'cause the billionaire playboy's grill will be on the front hood of a car competing in Saturday's Sprint Cup Race ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

So, how the hell did he make that happen? Dan's a huge poker player --and he recently beat the snot out of BK Racing owner Ron Devine.

But instead of forcing Ron to pay up in cash, Dan wanted to go all Ricky Bobby ... so he made a deal to get his mug plastered on one of Ron's NASCAR whips, which will be competing at Richmond International Speedway.  

The final product is hilarious ... with Dan's giant bearded face right on the front of Matt DiBenedetto's #83 car. He also added a sticker of Dan's pet goat Zeus to the rear for good measure. 

Baaaaaaad ass.

EXCLUSIVE

0424-kris-jenner-kendal-house-sued-TMZ-THEAGENCYRECOM-01

Kris Jenner allegedly swindled a homeowner who thought he was renting his home to her for a small, demure dinner party, when it was really a wild bash with loud music, a stripper and a hundred hormonal teens. 

Gabriel Fedida claims in a new lawsuit Kris and her realtor made a deal to rent the Hollywood Hills house for $10k for a 15 person dinner party. Fedida says to his horror Kris used his home as the backdrop to celebrate Kendall's 19th birthday, with 100 of her closest friends.

Fedida says there was ear-shattering music, general rowdiness and strippers!  

When the dust settled, Fedida says there was $101,450 in damage. He says the house is now out of commission, so with lost rent he wants $150k. 

We reached out to the Kardashian camp ...  so far no word back.
