Cardi B's gonna have to share the spotlight ... but she probably won't mind, 'cause it's with her sister.

Asia Argento Watch Your Mouth, Jimmy ... Or Else

9/21/2018 2:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Asia Argento's attorney fired off a stern warning to Jimmy Bennett -- be very careful with what you say about me ... or you're gonna regret it.

Asia's attorney, Mark Heller, fired off a letter to Jimmy's lawyer Thursday -- obtained by TMZ -- regarding the reported upcoming interview he's got scheduled on an Italian television station to address their sexual encounter on May 9, 2013.

According to the letter ... Bennett's words will be carefully monitored for any "slanderous, defamatory or untruthful statements" concerning Argento, and if they believe there are any -- they'll be taking legal action.

Jimmy's interview is scheduled for sometime this weekend. As you know, Asia is originally from Italy and has a home there.

As we've reported ... both Argento and Bennett have made sexual assault allegations against each other. The two had sex in a Marina del Rey, CA hotel room when he was just 17. She says he was a horny kid who pounced on her and took away her free will. He says this was planned seduction with a minor.

The photo of Argento and Bennett in bed after they had sex, along with the text messages, seem to support Bennett's version.

Argento trashed Bennett, calling him a failed actor and drug abuser. 

TMZ broke the story ... Bennett has decided to pursue the matter with the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept., which has not opened a criminal investigation. 

'AGT' Finalist Arrested for Domestic Violence ... Video in Cuffs

9/21/2018 2:38 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2:35 PM PT -- We've obtained video of Ketterer in custody outside of the hotel he was arrested at talking with an officer. 

Michael Ketterer -- who finished in 5th place on this season's "America's Got Talent" -- has been arrested for felony domestic violence.

Ketterer was taken into custody Thursday afternoon by the LAPD in Hollywood. Law enforcement sources tell us ... he got into a fight with his wife, and when cops showed up they noticed she had a visible red mark.

We're told he was cuffed and booked for a felony because of the injury. Ketterer was released after posting $50k bail.

Michael tells us ... the arrest was a big "misunderstanding." He admits he and his wife got into an argument in their hotel room and cops were called, but she told them she didn't want to press charges. Ketterer says they arrested him anyway, telling him the law's the law.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the case will be downgraded to a misdemeanor because the injury was so minor. We're told the case will be referred to the L.A. City Attorney. 

The 5th place finisher on season 13 of 'AGT' made headlines when Simon Cowell hit the Golden Buzzer during his audition, which advanced him right to the live shows. He later moved Cowell to tears during his quarterfinals performance ... after revealing his wife and daughter almost died during childbirth.

Tyron Woodley I'm Next In Line for Conor ... If He Beats Khabib

9/21/2018 2:32 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor vs. Tyron Woodley??

Tyron thinks it's just a matter of time ... and the time is right after Conor beats Khabib at UFC 229. 

"If Conor wins, the only fight that makes sense for him is to fight me," Tyron said on 'The Hollywood Beatdown' ... "[he'll] try to get a 3rd belt."

Of course, Conor has already held the UFC featherweight and UFC lightweight titles ... but Tyron Woodley is currently the champ in the welterweight division. 

So, if McGregor wants to make history as the Champ Champ Champ ... he's gotta go through Tyron. 

It's not a crazy idea ... Conor fought at welterweight in BOTH scraps with Nate Diaz

Tyron also says he and Conor have some unfinished beef stemming from a backstage altercation at UFC 205 back in 2016. 

There's A LOT more this week ... Tyron tells us about his conversations with Jon Jones and why he does NOT think he'd be able to win a fight against the UFC legend. 

Plus, Tyron demonstrates how to apply the Darce chokehold ... on Evan!

Breaking News

Michael Jordan played a little help defense Friday ... packing boxes full of food for Hurricane Florence victims.

The Hornets owner was front and center on the assembly line -- boxing up cereal and other goods for people affected by the storm that barreled into the East Coast last week.

Lil Wayne Don't Blame Me 'Cause 'Carter V' Hasn't Dropped!!!

9/21/2018 11:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne's highly anticipated 'Carter V' album is nowhere to be found on the day TONS of listeners expected to hear it ... and salivating fans have no one to blame but themselves.

A source close to Weezy's camp tells TMZ ... the hype surrounding September 21 as the release date for 'Carter V' was all generated by pure speculation that somehow morphed into conspiracies. Fact is ... all Young Money did was tease the cover and NEVER once mentioned an album release date.

The hype started after Floyd Mayweather posted the album cover on Instagram earlier this month and captioned it "[Goat emoji] #21." That led everyone to believe the album was dropping at midnight on September 21. But when midnight came and went ... fans were left scratching their heads, especially after Floyd deleted the post. James Harden followed suit with "#13" and also deleted it.

Making matters even more confusing -- Michael Vick and Kobe Bryant on Friday posted the same album cover on IG but captioned it "#7" and "#8," respectively. In retrospect, they were just posting the cover along with their jersey numbers. Wayne's daughter, Reginae, also posted the album cover on IG but her caption simply had "#C5."

Point is ... Wayne said zilch about Sept. 21. The wait continues ... 

John Salley Nick Cannon Broke The Rules ... Kanye Was Right

9/21/2018 12:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Salley has a clear side in the Kanye West vs. Nick Cannon feud ... telling TMZ Sports West was 100% within his rights to send shots at Cannon for talking about Kim Kardashian West

Ye fired off on Nick Thursday ... saying NC has no right mentioning Kim's name in interviews, and talking about her body ... even though Nick and Kim dated back in the day.

Cannon fired back, saying he's NEVER disrespected Kim but has answered questions about her honestly, and will continue to do so.

We got Salley leaving Catch in L.A. and asked him which side of the fence he falls on ... and he said it all goes back to a rule he learned during his NBA playing career.

"Everything was open except wives and fiancees."

Salley goes on to say Kanye is "kinda right" to be pissed at Nick Cannon, and that he thinks West's warning shot is enough that no one will talk about Kim Kardashian in a sexually objectifying way again.

Okay, John.

Joaquin Phoenix Why So Serious? There's a New Joker in Town!!!

9/21/2018 10:52 AM PDT

Joaquin Phoenix is gonna make you remember -- if you'd even forgot -- why clowns are so damn creepy ... by revealing the new big screen Joker.

Filming for "Joker" just got started this month and Warner Bros. just pulled back the curtain on Joaquin in full makeup. The studio dropped this time-lapse video of him getting into character.   

This flick is an origin film about Batman's archenemy ... so we'll get a new, closer look at how Arthur Fleck became Gotham's clown prince of crime.

So far, Joaquin's announced costars include Robert De Niro, Zazie BeetzMarc Maron and Bryan Callen. Martin Scorsese is producing and Todd Phillips, of "The Hangover" fame, is directing.

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

9/21/2018 10:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

9:00 AM PT -- Important note for super-gullible people ... on pizzaslime.com you can actually purchase the $12k bottle, but Noah's team says you will NOT get an actual bottle and the money charged to your account WILL be refunded.

As they told us ... they NEVER thought anyone would actually click on such an absurd gag offer. 

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.

Kylie Jenner Handsy with BFF ... She's Turning 21 Too!!!

9/21/2018 9:09 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner brought the glamour and her BFF Jordyn Woods brought the glitz -- and together, the dynamic duo painted the town.

The ladies were all dolled up to get a head start on Jordyn's birthday celebration. She turns 21 Sunday but kicked things off Thursday with dinner at Petite in L.A. ... before heading off to Poppy. 

Kylie turned 21 over a month ago and clearly couldn't contain herself at the thought of her BFF coming THIS close to legal drinking age. They capped off their dinner with a small chocolate cake and giant sparkling candle. Nope, no cereal ... with or without milk.

Bottle service was flowin' later that night -- at least for Kylie, who held up a giant poster with Jordyn's face on it. 

They're obviously tight. Remember, Jordyn was front and center in Kylie's birth announcement and they're nearly inseparable -- except for that one time Jordyn flaunted the goods down in Mexico.

Happy turn-up!! 

Bryan Callen Bruce Wayne Has A Little Wang

9/21/2018 10:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bryan Callen thinks Batman should keep on his Batsuit ... 'cause we now know there's nothing all that special about Bruce Wayne's birthday suit.

We got Bryan at LAX and showed him DC's new adult comic with images of Batman's manhood ... and the comedian tells us the Batcave is, umm ... lacking. 

His point is, size does matter -- for superheroes -- and Bruce Wayne just ain't getting it done.

Bryan, who has a role in the upcoming "Joker" movie, explains why he thought Batman would be more gifted and tells us which comic book heroes are packing ... most likely. 

The Dark Knight's penis shows up 4 times in "Batman: Damned," and the uncensored version is only available in print editions of the adults-only comic. In the online version, DC has darkened the image, but you can check out the original here

Don't be shy, Bryan says there's nothing to fear.
