Hulk Hogan

I Still Love WWE

... And I Wanna Be Trump's Running Mate

8/29/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Two interesting comments from Hulk Hogan -- he's NOT mad with the WWE for cutting ties with him over the N-word ... and says he wants to make America great again, by running with Donald Trump!!!!

First, the WWE thing ... it's been more than a month since Vince McMahon wiped all traces of Hogan from the website after reports surfaced that he used the N-word in a racial rant years ago. 

Even after several black wrestlers and celebs vouched for Hulk -- saying he's not a racist at heart -- Vince has refused to bring him back into the WWE universe. 

So, how does Hogan feel about being blackballed? Check out the clip ... he views the situation more as a temporary "family" conflict and joked that the only "hard feelings" he's going to have is "when I get [Vince McMahon] in the ring again." 

As for the Trump comments ... Hulk says he thinks the country is finally ready for Vice President Hogan, brother. 

Are you?

Judge Joe Brown

I'm a TV Kingpin Again ...

In Jail, Anyway

8/29/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-joe-brown-jail-food-fun-art-GETTY-TMZ-COMPOSITE-01Judge Joe Brown's jail sentence is less punishment and more super awesome vacation -- total privacy, fancy amenities, and he even gets full control of the television.  

Law enforcement in Shelby County, TN tell us Judge Joe will be kept away from the general population in a protective custody pod for his own safety. The kicker is he's the only inmate in protective custody -- so as king of the castle he can watch all the Judge Judy he wants!

His meals aren't exactly 5-star, but by jail standards it's pretty fine dining:

Breakfast -- Dry cereal, scrambled eggs, cajun potatoes, coffee cake, coffee

Lunch -- PB&J sandwich, cookies, fruit drink 

Dinner -- crispy chicken patty w/ gravy, parsley noodles, carrots, garden salad, fresh baked roll,     pudding, and sweet tea 

As we previously reported, Judge Joe's serving 5 days for contempt ... but he won't have any 'Oz' issues -- solo showers only in protective custody.

T-Pain

Wrecks Aston Martin

... Blame It On The O-O-O-Other Driver

8/29/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826_sidebar_t-pain-car-crash-photos-launchT-Pain needs a major auto-tune-up after smashing his exotic ride in a multi-car wreck ... TMZ has learned. 

The crash happened last week in L.A. -- we're told a purple sedan was turning left at an intersection, and T-Pain ... driving in the opposite direction in his fancy Aston Martin ... went through the intersection and plowed into the sedan.

The impact was so hard it knocked a tire off the sedan and flung it back into a 3rd car at the light.

As for fault ... one witness claims T-Pain jumped the light and went into the intersection early -- but Pain's camp claims the sedan turned after the light turned red. 

We're told there were no serious injuries, and even though cops showed up ... nobody was cited.

French Montana

Summer Party Pad Up For Grabs

... For $5.3 Million

8/29/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828_french_montana_house_sale_launch2French Montana paid $40k to rent out a secluded LA home for the month of July, but now the owner only wants to sell so it will set you back $5.3 mil. 

The modern 6-bedroom mansion sits in the gated Los Feliz community of Laughlin Park -- where Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman have lived. The place looks like it's straight out of "Miami Vice" (the remake) ... with an ultramodern, all white, open air architecture.

There's a pool, a spa, and a home theater ... but the real selling point is the insane jetliner view of the city. 

It's also photo shoot ready ... just ask Frenchie.

'Married To Medicine' Jill Connors

Loses Kids, Car, Cash & House

After Attacking Hubby

8/28/2015 3:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-jill-john-connors-facebook-01Jill Connors is a woman completely on her own after attacking her husband earlier this month -- and in a weird twist, she hopes to get things back on track by filing for divorce. 

TMZ broke the story ... the "Married to Medicine" star went berserk on hubby Dr. John Connors after he accused her of cheating. John won a restraining order shortly after her arrest and he got everything -- the house, her car and custody of their 3 kids ... at least temporarily.

But Jill is fighting back ... we got a copy of the divorce papers she filed last week, asking for primary custody of the kids as well as spousal support.  And she wants their Atlanta home. 

She also says John withdrew $250k from their joint account -- leaving her penniless.

Over Hitler Rant

8/28/2015 12:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828_TILA_TEQUILA_big_brother_tmzTila Tequila just got the ax from the "Celebrity Big Brother" house after producers discovered she sympathized with Hitler back in 2013.

We're told the show just kicked off across the pond in the UK and after the subject of Hitler came up while she was in the house, producers raised the red flag. According to her manager, they made the decision to remove her from the show immediately. 

Back in 2013, the reality star took to her blog and Facebook page to post a racy photo of herself in Nazi gear standing outside of Auschwitz.

Not only was she thrown out ... we're told Tila won't be receiving her gigantic $175,000 payout from the show.

Karrueche

Chris Brown's a Hypocrite

So Stop the Threats!

8/28/2015 12:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-SUB-karrueche-bathing-suit-INSTAGRAM-02Karrueche is done with Chris Brown's possessiveness and his henchman's violent threats ... and she's firing back.

Chris' ex is responding to a threat made by a member of Chris' posse ... a threat directed at Marques Houston, who gave thumbs up to the pic she posted of her amazing body.

The threat was in the form of a photo of 2 guns, with the caption, "Ni**as sho no how to disrespect, I don't care if they not still together."

Karrueche thinks it's time for Chris, and any of his friends, to get over it -- "I'm bored and tried of this situation. I don't get it because I'm single."

She adds, "I thought we have all matured and moved on. Especially since Chris has been seen with multiple women since the breakup. I don't want anything to do with any type of violence or negativity."

Karrueche tells us she and Marques are just friends, nothing more. The two of them just finished filming a movie together.

Chris has been radio silent since the threat was posted.

Robin Williams

Wife & Kids Still Fighting

Over High-Priced Bike Collection

8/28/2015 12:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0828-robin-williams-bike-GETTY-01Robin Williams' widow and his three kids are still warring over his possessions, including his super-expensive collection of bicycles.

The attorney for Susan Williams, Robin's widow, was in court Friday morning ... asking a San Francisco judge to settle the remaining property disputes with Robin's 3 children ... Zak, Zelda and Cody.

Robin was an avid cyclist and owned dozens of bikes when he died. It's been reported he spent more than a million bucks on the sport. Some of his cycles were extremely rare and worth tens of thousands of dollars.

The attorney for the children says Robin's will is clear about who should get what ... and doesn't think the court needs to intervene.

Both sides will meet next week in a last ditch effort to settle the matter without the judge.

Karrueche Tran

Death Threats Over Sexy Shot

8/28/2015 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0828-karruehce-tran-instagram-01A photo of Karreuche Tran has R&B singer Marques Houston looking over his shoulder after a comment he posted triggered death threats from a member of Chris Brown's crew.

Houston ogled Tran's pic, then paid her the highest compliment: 

0828-subasset-karrueche-comment-instagram

Houston's accolade set off one of Breezy's crew members, who responded by posting a pic of semi-automatics and a jarring warning. 

0828-subasset-karrueche-guns-instagram-01The warning cannot be taken lightly, because the crew member is a known gang member.  

You may recall, back in May, Tyson Beckford posted a pic of himself with Karrueche and Chris responded by tweeting, "U wanna keep walking them runways. I need ta legs for that."

The Weeknd

Viral Music Video Shoot ...

NOT Busted by Cops

8/28/2015 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

That viral vid of LAPD officers brutally shutting down The Weeknd's music video shoot Thursday night in downtown LA is nothing more than a wicked game ... of promotion.

The LAPD tells TMZ ... the video going around on social media is 100% staged.

The clip shows several cops ripping through The Weeknd's set with nightsticks, demanding permits, and shutting down all video recording.

We also know the guy who posted the clip is actually Weeknd's creative director -- and since his new album drops today ... it's a little too perfect.

The beauty behind the madness here -- pure guerrilla marketing.

My Baby Mama's BF Is

A Wanted Man!!

8/28/2015 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0828-king-ba-instagram-01Chris Brown is blasting his baby mama for being a hypocrite -- while she claims it's not safe for Royalty to be around Chris ... her BF, and Royalty's wannabe stepdad, is wanted for forgery.

Chris started ripping Nia Guzman after a Houston TV station reported cops are searching for King Ba. He's accused of forging more than $5,000 worth of U.S. Treasury checks, and police released bank surveillance footage of him.

Chris immediately responded to the news ... saying on Instagram, "Funny how I work a legit job and love my daughter to the fullest and I'm in her life. Well, if it ain't the pot calling the kettle black."

Nia tried to distance herself from King Ba ... telling Chris that she's single and has moved away from Houston.

TMZ broke the story ... Nia wants to limit Chris to supervised visits with Royalty because she thinks he's irresponsible. But now Chris feels like he's got high ground in this battle. As he told Nia, "#goddontlikeugly"
