Noah Cyrus $12k Bottle of Tears First a Joke ... Now a Scam

9/21/2018 7:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Noah Cyrus had a funny idea for a joke ... and someone has now turned it into a scam.

Noah and her team thought it would be funny to advertise a bottle of her tears for $12,000 a pop. The idea was that she was super sad when she broke up with Lil Xan so she put an ad on Pizzaslime hawking the fake bottle of tears. It was all in fun ... a promotion for her new album, "Good Cry."

Here's the problem. Someone smelled an opportunity to screw her fans out of cash, so they put the ad on GoFundMe, saying they want to buy a bottle ... when anyone with a brain has to know it's not real.

Well ... 8 brainless folks have already contributed a total of $1,240 in just 15 hours. Mind you ... when someone donates on GoFundMe ... the money is automatically deducted from their bank account.

Noah's team is now hip to the scam, and they tell TMZ they're contacting GoFundMe, asking that the post be 86'd. They also say they will reimburse the folks who donated and will throw in backstage passes to one of Noah's shows.

P.T. Barnum was clearly right.

Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin Lawyer Up for Prenup ... Before Tying the Knot

9/21/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin will take vows promising to love each other until death, but he's hedging his bets with a prenup ... TMZ has learned.

Sources with direct knowledge tell us, Bieber and Hailey have each lawyered up for the negotiation that is as important as it is awkward.  

There are reports Justin is not asking for a prenup because he and Hailey are both so religious they take the "til death do us part" vow literally -- that's just not true. Justin has been counseled it would be insane not to get a prenup, and he's on board. 

We're told the prenup is about to be negotiated and the couple will not get married until it's signed.

TMZ broke the story ... Justin and Hailey got a marriage license last week but did not tie the knot.

Reports of net worth are almost always wildly inaccurate, but the rough guess for the Biebs is around $250 million. Hailey is reportedly worth a couple of mil.

FYI ... the money they each bring into the marriage is their own and, unless they co-mingle their funds to the point no one can figure out who has what, it stays their separate property throughout the marriage.

Kevin Hart to Katt Williams You Had Your Shot ... You Blew it On Drugs!!!

9/21/2018 6:59 AM PDT
Breaking News

Kevin Hart is riding hard for Tiffany Haddish ... telling Katt Williams to stop attacking her just because he blew his shot at superstardom on drugs.

Kevin lashed out at Katt Friday morning on "The Breakfast Club," telling him, "You had the shot! You were set up to be the star. You didn't show up to work! You f**ked off promo shoots!" 

Tiffany was with Kevin when he went off. You'll recall, a week ago Katt blasted Tiffany for leapfrogging over dozens of other comedians who he feels were more deserving of Hollywood fame. But, Kevin says it's time for Katt to quit bitching and take responsibility.

He called him out directly, saying, "Have you ever used your platform to f**king bring the people that were under you up? You haven't! So, because you haven't, don't s**t on those that now are!!" 

As for why Kevin thinks Katt hasn't become a huge movie star -- "He chose drugs" and that scared off the studios.

Smell that? Fresh beef on the grill.

Howie Mandel No Jokes From Me ... P.C. is Destroying Comedy!!!

9/21/2018 7:59 AM PDT

Howie Mandel is pissed about the state of stand-up comedy ... and he's blaming political correctness for its demise.

We got the comedian and "America's Got Talent" judge leaving Craig's Thursday night in WeHo, and he launched into a tirade about why comedy sucks now ... for comedians. Howie harkened back to legends like Richard Pryor -- who were revered for pushing the envelope -- but said anyone who tries that today runs the risk of destroying their whole career.

It's gotten so bad, Howie says he's actually afraid to crack jokes in public.

As for what made him start thinking about this ... Howie doesn't name names. But, we're thinking it could be Norm Macdonald, who dropped a down syndrome reference while trying to dig himself out of his #MeToo comments.

Dana White Putin & Trump ... You're Invited to McGregor Fight!

9/21/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dana White says he's extended an invitation to both Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump to be his VIP guests when Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov clash in Vegas next month. 

Of course, Dana is tight with POTUS and even spoke at the Republican National Convention during Trump's campaign. 

And Putin ... well, Conor recently became friends with the Russian president. And, Khabib is a Russian citizen. 

But, Dana knows they probably won't come -- acknowledging that having a world leader at a fight would be a nightmare as far as security is concerned. Instead, White says Trump has assured him he'll watch the fight on Pay-Per-View. 

We also asked White if Conor's crew of hooligans will be allowed at the fight -- considering they participated in the bus attack at Barclays Center back in April. 

Despite the violence, White says the crew is NOT banned -- and UFC is already drawing up a security plan to make sure Team Conor and Team Khabib don't clash at the event. 

One last thing ... how'd Conor's whiskey actually taste? Dana gives us our first Proper No. Twelve review -- and yeah, it doesn't suck. 

Olivia Culpo Drop. Dead. Gorg. ... at Paris Fashion Week

9/21/2018 6:41 AM PDT

Olivia Culpo might as well have shut down Paris Fashion Week ... it ain't gonna get better than this little black dress.

The former Miss Universe slipped into the little black dress of all little black dresses Thursday in Paris during fashion week. Guessing she most likely brought traffic to a standstill when she crossed the street.

The dress itself is stunning ... over the shoulder ruffles, tight and short. Add the perfect clutch, heels and bracelets and you've got the most beautiful woman in the world. Literally.

Just when you thought Olivia draped in latex from head to toe couldn't get better.

Suge Knight Son Reacts to Plea Deal ... The System's Stacked Against Him

9/21/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight's son believes his old man's being treated unfairly, and the system's set up to keep him locked up for the rest of his life ... but he's holding out hope it doesn't go down like that.

Suge Jacob Knight tells TMZ ... despite his father striking a 28-year plea deal in his murder case Thursday, he's staying positive about the situation. He admits he's incredibly concerned about his dad's health, but says Suge's a fighter ... and he's always going to be alright.

Still, Suge Jr. seems pretty upset over the outcome of his dad's case ... and thinks it's time someone gives him a break.

We broke the story ... the 53-year-old former rap mogul pled no contest to voluntary manslaughter in the killing of Terry Carter. Suge will get 28 years in prison but he'll get credit for time served, and due to prison overcrowding, he could get out in just over 10 years. 

That's still a long time, considering Suge's health issues, but his son's trying to keep the faith.

Bruno Mars Keeping His Promise to Honor Cardi Nightly on 24K Magic Tour

9/21/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Bruno Mars is a man of his word when it comes Cardi B -- he's honoring her every night on his tour ... with a pretty epic drum solo.  

So far, he's played just over a handful of shows on the 24K Magic World Tour, which Cardi pulled out of last month. Even though she's not there, Cardi's huge hit, "Bodak Yellow," is featured every night when Bruno himself gets behind a drum kit. 

Earlier this week, he played in Philly and the crowd ate up the combo of Cardi's voice and track with Bruno's 90-second solo ... complete with a badass light show.

Remember, Cardi said she needed more time to adjust to motherhood. She also said doctors told her it wouldn't be a good idea to bring baby Kulture on the road ... so she bowed out.

Bruno sent a message to Cardi after her announcement, saying he completely understood putting family first and promised to play "Bodak Yellow" every night in her honor.

Now we know HOW he's working it into the show ... and it's a sweet salute.

'Little Women: Dallas' Star 8 Months Pregnant ... And It's a Boy!!!

9/21/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Emily Fernandez -- aka Right Cheek, half of the rap duo from "Little Women: Dallas" -- is having a baby boy ... and soon!!

Sources close to Emily tell TMZ ... she's 8 months along in her pregnancy, and she's extremely happy and excited. You may recall, Fernandez tragically lost her infant son, JJ, in August 2016 at the age of 3 months ... and had been trying to get pregnant again.

As for the baby daddy ... it's Lontel, Emily's boyfriend from Season 2, and JJ's father as well. The 2 broke up last year over issues with her trying to have another child, and we're told they've had an on-and-off relationship since. She's no longer dating Dallas rapper, Dreadz 448.

We're told Emily and Lontel aren't currently together, but he still plans to be involved in their second son's life.

Our sources say Fernandez used IVF to conceive and choose the gender, but it's unclear if her baby will be a little person or not. That's unknown until birth ... which is quickly approaching.

Rep. Ralph Norman Makes Groping Joke About Justice Ginsburg ... Gets Big Laughs

9/20/2018 5:21 PM PDT

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is now the butt of sexual harassment jokes ... at least for Rep. Ralph Norman, who dropped one Thursday and kinda killed with it.

The South Carolina Representative was speaking at a Kiwanis Club event in his home state and did his best Shecky Greene. He asked the audience of about 100 people if they'd heard the late-breaking news on Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings -- then said, "Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out that she was groped by Abraham Lincoln."

Make sure to tip your servers, ladies and gentlemen ... Ralph will be here all week!!

Seriously though, the joke actually got a lot of laughs from the partial crowd. Aside from clearly mocking Kavanaugh's accuser Christine Ford ... he also took an arguably cheap shot at RBG's 85 years. Norman should be so lucky.

For the record, he's only 20 years behind RBG. As for any critics of his brand of humor -- Norman says, "lighten up."

Jets RB Isaiah Crowell Hey Cleveland ... Tell Me How My A** Tastes!!!

9/20/2018 6:42 PM PDT

If you thought NY Jets running back Isaiah Crowell was going to take it easy on his former team on Thursday Night Football ... you thought very wrong.

Crowell just scored his second TD of the first half to the put the Jets up 14-0 over the Browns, and to celebrate ... he wiped his butt with the ball and threw it in the stands for the Cleveland fans.

That's right, it was touchdown No. 2.

Crowell spent his first 4 years in the NFL with the Browns -- enduring a 1-31 record the past 2 seasons -- before heading to the Jets this offseason.

Clearly ... he's happy to put his Browns behind him.

Yasiel Puig Burglarized for the 4th Time ... Video of Suspect Released

9/20/2018 5:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

9/20 5:07 PM PT -- The LAPD has now released a video of the crime going down ... showing one of the suspects smashing in the front door with several kicks. Cops are asking for help in identifying the men involved. 

7:07 PM PT -- LAPD has just released a photo of one of the suspects, captured by Puig's home security system. 

Cops also provided further details, saying the 3 men -- 2 of which are believed to be black males in their early to mid-20s with slim builds -- ransacked Puig's home then located a safe in the second-floor master bedroom. They allegedly dragged it down the stairs through the living room, but fled without it ... leaving it in the doorway.

LAPD claims the suspects caused about $10k in damages. They have no description so far of the third suspect, who was the driver.

The 3 suspects are believed to be the same burglars who hit Puig's house on August 30.

Yasiel Puig really needs to do something about his home security, 'cause he was burglarized yet again -- the 4TH TIME he's been hit ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops were called to Puig's San Fernando Valley home Tuesday night around 8 PM after one of the Dodger's assistants got a security alert on his phone, which showed 3 men leaving Puig's property.

Yasiel has a security camera set up that captures motion, and it automatically sends the video to a cell phone programmed to receive it. When Yasiel's associate saw the footage, he immediately called police ... but the bad guys had already fled. 

We're told the men broke in through the back door ... smashing it open. It's unclear at this point if anything was taken.

Yasiel wasn't seen celebrating with his team at Dodger Stadium Tuesday night after their walk-off win against the Rockies, but the game went late ... and he presumably left when he got called about the break-in. 

If you're keeping track ... Yasiel's been burglarized now a total of 4 times. He initially got hit last spring while he was away for spring training, then again during the World Series last year ... and a third time just last month. Our sources say cops aren't sure if the burglaries are connected, but it's clear someone is keeping track of Yasiel's work schedule, 'cause he's never been home.

Time to get a watchdog or something, Yas. That's our advice.
