RiRi just posted an extreme close-up shot of her nearly bare derriere in shorts that are so tiny, her THONG is hanging out of 'em.
Rihanna added a caption saying the pic was from the set of her new music video ... but we think it's pretty obvious the photo was for an audience of 1 -- Chris ... who was recently spotted out with his other sometimes-GF Karrueche Tran (who definitely doesn't have an ass like Ri).
Think he's regretting the breakup yet?
The only thing Denver Nuggets star JaVale McGee likes more than a goofy outfit ... IS A GREAT RIDDLE ... and last night, he challenged TMZ to a quality brainteaser right on the street!
Here's the deal ... McGee was leaving Crustacean in L.A. last night when one of our photogs hit up the 7-footer with a bunch of random, weird questions ... like, "How much would your $44 million contract weigh in gold bars?"
McGee didn't like the fact he didn't know the answer ... so he totally turned the tables -- and asked a riddle of his own!
The whole exchange is pretty funny ... our photog's a goofball, JaVale's a goofball -- turned out to be a pretty hilarious encounter.
Lil Scrappy believes he's addicted to weed ... and after failing a court-ordered drug test, the rapper will enter a rehab facility for treatment, TMZ has learned.
Scrappy appeared in a Georgia courtroom moments ago, where officials revealed a urine test Scrappy took last week came back positive for marijuana.
TMZ spoke with Scrappy's lawyer, Mawuli Mel Davis, who tells us ... the rapper will check into a rehab facility before the next court hearing in June.
Davis also tells us ... Scrappy acknowledges he's addicted to smoking marijuana.
We broke the story ... Scrappy was recently jailed for violating his probation back in March after a dispute over a different pee test. According to court officials, Scrappy tried to turn in a urine sample that was cold to the touch and may have been tampered with ... and when asked to submit another cup, he refused.
Story developing ...
Wyle was leaving Madeo last night with his girlfriend Sara Wells when we started talking baseball ... since the former "ER" star is known for being an avid baseball card collector.
But when it came to the crown jewel of Wyle's collection -- it wasn't a card ... but it has something to do with the 1952 Brooklyn Dodgers, one of the most important squads in the history of baseball.
And why, you ask? Just take a look at the roster -- Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, Gil Hodges, Duke Snider and Joe Black, the first African American to win a World Series game.
Pretty sweet, Wyle.
First Tupac ... then Eazy-E ... now there's talk Steve Jobs could be the very next HOLOGRAM to appear at a major public event -- and Apple CEO Tim Cook ain't exactly putting the rumors to bed.
Cook was in D.C. yesterday ... where the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations grilled him like a cheeseburger over allegations Apple's ducking billions of dollars in taxes.
FYI -- Cook told the politicians, "We pay all the taxes we owe — every single dollar."
But AFTER the hearing, we asked Tim the question that really matters -- ARE WE GETTING A VIRTUAL STEVE JOBS AT THE NEXT BIG APPLE EVENT??
Here's the good news ... Justin Bieber wants to invite you to one of his house parties. The bad news ... if you talk about it, he's gonna sue your ass for $5 million.
TMZ has obtained a copy of a document EVERYONE must sign before entering Casa De Bieb in Calabasas, CA. The doc -- a Liability Waiver and Release -- warns that anyone who blabs about any of the goings on inside the mansion will get nailed, and that includes the "physical health, or the philosophical, spiritual or other views or characteristics" of Bieber or the guests.
The document makes it clear ... anyone who violates the terms of the waiver will automatically be on the hook for $5 million in damages.
But wait ... there's more. If you dare tweet about the party -- $5 mil. If you blog -- $5 mil. If you Instagram -- $5 mil.
And God knows what goes on inside, but the form warns there might be activities which are "potentially hazardous and you should not participate unless you are medically able and properly trained."
And there's more ... The risks include "minor injuries to catastrophic injuries, including death."
Truth be told ... other big celebs also make people sign these waivers, but it's pretty hilarious.
And now, definitive proof Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are definitely maybe BACK TOGETHER -- Arnold totally grabbed Maria's butt last weekend ... and TMZ has video.
As we reported, Arnold and Maria were attending their daughter Christina's graduation at Georgetown ... and while people were milling around everywhere, Arnold casually cupped Maria's backside. It's subtle, but it happened.
FYI, Arnold has been obsessed with Maria's caboose since he met her in the '70s -- in fact, Arnold recently told a story on "60 Minutes" about how he told Maria's mother her daughter had a "great ass."
This video seems to suggest the latter ... but we still gotta ask ...
It's the kinda house 99.999% of the world will never see ... let alone OWN -- but TMZ has learned, Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi just purchased this $26.5 million mansion in Santa Barbara.
The deal went through last week, and words can't do justice to how insane this house is -- it's 10,522 square feet ... located in Montecito, which has some of the most beautiful vistas in Cali. It's got 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms ... and it sits on 13 ACRES.
Oh yeah, it's also got NINE fireplaces ... and even the pool's got an ocean view.
And if that weren't crazy enough, it's just the latest house Ellen has added to her arsenal -- she also owns several other properties in the Los Angeles area, including homes in Beverly Hills and Hidden Valley.
Annnnnnd now we feel poor. Thanks, Ellen.
Just how over the top were Kim Kardashian's music-box baby shower invitations? Really, really, really over the top -- and TMZ has the first photo proof.
The invite to Kim K's June 2nd bash -- sent to a guest close to Kanye West -- arrived as a fully functional music box, complete with a spinning ballerina ... dancing to a lullaby version of Kanye's "Hey Mama."
Not only is the invite playing the baby daddy's tune, but the ballerina bears a striking resemblance to Kim herself -- just in case anyone forgets who this party is REALLY celebrating.
According to the invites, Kris Jenner, Shelli Azoff (wife of uber-manager Irving Azoff), Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are hosting the party. Recommended attire ... garden chic. We think that's rich people speak for casual.
Now here's the "Hey Mama" lullaby -- listen and pretend like you were invited.
"Arrested Development" star Justin Wade -- who plays Steve Holt on the show (STEVE HOLT!!!) -- couldn't be more excited for the big premiere on Netflix this weekend ... telling TMZ, he's planning to throw a massive rager to commemorate the big day.
Wade tells us, the festivities will kick off Sunday afternoon at his L.A. apartment -- and he's already invited more than 25 friends to come over and get crazy.
The episodes are going live at midnight on Saturday (12:01am PST Sunday) -- after AD's 7-year hiatus -- but Wade says he and his friends plan to warm things up by re-watching some old favorites ... i.e. the episodes Wade stars in.
Oh yeah, Wade says he's also invited former AD castmate Justin Lee, who played Annyong.
Sounds like fun. Thanks Steve Holt!
Chris Brown has yet another legal problem to deal with, after crashing his car in Los Angeles near Toluca Lake.
The accident happened an hour or so ago ... The photog tells us Chris was driving his Range Rover with his GF du jour Karrueche Tran, when he rear-ended a Mercedes.
Chris parked in front of the Mercedes and then exchanged info with the Mercedes chick. The photog says damage to her car was "medium" ... as opposed to rare.
Unlike the whole Rihanna thing, cops didn't come for this smashup.
We broke the story ... Heavy's brother Floyd has filed court docs seeking control of Heavy's estate -- via an old will that earmarks nothing for D's 13-year-old daughter, parents or other siblings.
But Heavy's mom Eulahlee Myers tells TMZ ... the entire family SUPPORTS Floyd ... because they believe he will protect Heavy's fortune for his daughter -- until she's an adult.
"Heavy’s Estate needs to be managed," Myers tells us ... adding, "It cannot be self-managed or self-administered and it has to be Court approved. Open bills, unfinished business, taxes and day-to-day decisions including future plans for his daughter all need to be done. This management needs someone who is capable, smart, honest and close to this family."
"The family all wanted Floyd as that person to represent Dwight’s estate."
Myers explains, "All of Heavy’s assets are going to his 13-year-old Daughter Xea -- including his Social Security, Pension, and future Royalties. All of Heavy’s personal belongings are in storage for his Daughter until she gets a bit older."
She adds, "The Myers family is a close-knit family and always will be. Just the way Heavy liked it."
