Drake Fans Scammed

I'm No Fake ...

But These Shows Are

36 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0304-drake-tmz-01Drake will be performing in 8 cities beginning in May ... sounds awesome, except we found out it's a scam. 

A promoter is advertising the tour ... but not with Drake's permission. The rapper is NOT performing at any of the venues this spring and is asking his fans to call the cops if they got duped into buying tickets.

The scam is no small potatoes ... we're told in Miami and Houston, ticket prices are upwards of $350 a pop and people are falling for it.  

We're told Drake and his team have no idea who the promoter is, but they're definitely on the hunt and out for blood.

LaGuardia Plane Skids

NY Giants Player On Flight

'I Shoulda Stayed Home'

8 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0305-larry-donnell-instagram-01NY Giants tight end Larry Donnell was aboard the Delta airlines flight that skidded off the runway at LaGuardia Airport moments ago ... and says he KNEW he shoulda stayed home this morning. 

Not one of the 149 passengers on board suffered any serious injuries when the plane was coming in for a landing and skidded off the runway. It eventually crashed into a snow bank and came to a stop. 

When Donnell got off the plane, he did what most people would do ... took a pic ... and posted the caption, "Look at this s**t! Knew I shoulda stayed my ass at home."

Chris Brown

My Baby is Royalty!!!

3/5/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0304-chris-brown-fun-art-getty-tmz-01Chris Brown's baby girl answers to Royalty!

We've learned Nia named the kid Royalty. What we don't know ... whether she consulted Chris before inking the birth certificate.

TMZ broke the story ... Chris and Nia got it on summer of 2013 and she gave birth 9 months ago. As we reported, Karrueche was blindsided ... she had no idea until minutes before TMZ posted the story Tuesday afternoon.

As for Chris' involvement ... we're told he calls Nia regularly and now says he wants to openly participate in raising the baby. Nia and Royalty live in Texas, and Chris says he'll gladly fly there regularly to parent her.

Karrueche Tran

I'm Single Again Baby!

3/5/2015 6:22 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Karrueche Tran wanted to make a statement Wednesday and the statement she made ... Chris Brown is in her rear view mirror and she's back on the market.

Chris' non-baby mama and a few of her friends who also haven't been knocked up by him hit up the clubs in Hollywood. Karrueche, Christina Milian and a few other chicks went to Hyde and then moved over to Warwick.  

Our photog had plenty of questions about Chris' 9-month-old baby girl -- something Karrueche didn't know about until our story broke Tuesday -- but all she did was giggle.

Gentlemen, the line forms to the left ...

'Empire' Writer

White Guys

Shouldn't Control the N-Word

3/5/2015 5:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

White TV writers have no business deciding if the N-word should be hurled around ... so says the guy who wrote Wednesday night's episode of "Empire."

David Rambo  was leaving The Man Cave Sports Bar in L.A. when our photog asked him about Terrence Howard's desire to sprinkle "Empire" scripts with that word ... and he wants it with an "er."

Rambo -- who is also a co-exec producer on the show -- is duly deferential ... because for him it's strictly racial. 

So we gotta ask ...

Kim Kardashian

Hits the Bottle ...

Of Hair Dye, HARD

3/5/2015 6:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0307-kim-kardashian-blonde-hair-splashKim Kardashian said hey baby, take a walk on the bright side -- debuting an ultra blonde hairdo in Paris.

Kim and Kanye West walked out of Le Royal Monceau Hotel, and -- it might just be the new 'do -- but she had a disturbingly distant look on her face ... maybe thinking if change is a good thing. 

And you thought Kim she was just into black. 

Pacquiao/Mayweather

A-List Can Score Free Seats ...

But It's COMP-licated

3/5/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0304_VOCO_will_smith_rihanna_leonardo_tmzIf Will SmithLeonardo DiCaprio or Rihanna want FREE seats to the Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather fight -- it'll be no problem at all -- as long as they're down to be a walking billboard.

Tickets are in such high demand, fight promoters aren't handing out comped front row seats to high profile stars like they usually do. Instead, they'll be forced to pay up to $100k or more ... just like normies.

But we've learned there's another option. If a celeb is willing to endorse companies by wearing logo-emblazoned gear at the fight -- that company will eat the ticket cost.

For instance, we're told VOCO Vodka & Coconut Water has already made such offers to Leo, RiRi, and Big Willie ... in exchange for front row seats.  

We know what you're thinking, but sorry ... you in a VOCO cap just ain't the same as Rihanna in one.

Enjoy the PPV.

Ex 'Teen Mom' Jenelle Evans

Fiancé Arrested

For Domestic Violence

3/5/2015 6:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0307-nathan-mug-shot

Well, at least it wasn't former "Teen Mom" Jenelle Evans in cuffs this time -- instead it was her fiancé who got arrested Wednesday in South Carolina for a domestic violence incident. 

Nathan Griffith is currently being held without bail in the same jail where Evans was booked last week after she was busted for driving without a license.

Cops were called to their home around 4:45 AM Wednesday, says WBTW, but no arrests were made. The station says cops were called back again at 4:15 PM ... and that's when Griffith was arrested.

According to the police report, the alleged fight was over their engagement ring -- Griffith wanted it back, and Evans told police he pinned her against a toilet and ripped it off her finger ... leaving a cut.   

Griffith told police it didn't go down that way, and says Evans cut her finger taking the ring off herself. Griffith also claimed Evans had been violent with him on several occasions in the past, but he never called police. 

The report also claims there was a reality TV crew there at the time, but they didn't see what happened.

Chris Noth

Mr. Big No Longer Pimpin'

Just Limpin'

31 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

0307-chris-north-cane-splashBad news ladies, Mr. Big from "Sex and the City" is now walking with a big cane.

Chris Noth's been pulling off the sexy distinguished gentleman thing for years -- but Wednesday he was spotted in NYC's East Village with a new prop.

We're guessing "The Good Wife" star's limp is just a temporary thing ... at least for the sake of lady boners, everywhere.

To Piss Off Lisa Rinna

3/5/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards Lisa Rinna FightKim Richards is great at creating drama on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" -- and even better at creating stories ... TMZ has learned.

If you missed it ... Richards accused fellow cast member Lisa Rinna of hiding a family secret involving her husband Harry Hamlin -- prompting Lisa to do the whole shout, threaten, and shatter a glass thing the 'Housewives' do so well.

Fans have been speculating wildly about what dirt Kim has on Hamlin -- but we've learned she made the whole thing up just to get under Rinna's skin.

Production sources tell us the issue will be brought up again on the reunion episode -- and Kim will admit she created the whole story.

Fake or not ... it made for great TV.

'Workaholics' Adam DeVine

Deadwood Pistol Goes Missing

After House Break-In

3/5/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Adam DeVine Home Break InAdam DeVine lost more than a vehicle during a break-in at his home last weekend ... there's also an antique gun missing ... according to our DeVine family sources. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, DeVine's L.A. home was broken into over the weekend and the crooks made off with his brand new truck. We're told there was no surveillance video and right now police have no leads. 

DeVine family sources say they are most upset about cops finding an empty gun case ... meaning one or more of DeVine's weapons was also jacked. We're told DeVine has an antique pistol in his collection that his parents bought for him in Deadwood, SD and he's pretty sentimental about it.

The "Workaholics" and "Modern Family" star is clearly pissed ... tweeting, "Luckily it's just stuff and no one was hurt but it just sucks that I work so hard to buy cool stuff and you just steal it because you have no ambition and are too stupid to earn enough money to buy nice things."

Nick Gordon

I'm Spilling Bobbi Kristina Secrets

... to Dr. Phil

3/4/2015 4:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Gordon Bobbi Kristina Dr PhilNick Gordon will finally tell his version of events that led to Bobbi Kristina face down in a bathtub near death, but he won't be telling cops ... he'll be yakking to Dr. Phil

We're told Phil will meet Nick in the next few days and they will set a time for the formal sit-down. We're told the good doctor will ask about his battles with Bobby Brown and family ... battles that have kept him from Bobbi Kristina's hospital bed.  

Here's the tricky part. Nick is the target of a criminal investigation that was launched when authorities noticed that Bobbi Kristina had visible injuries. As the saying goes ... whatever Nick says can be held against him, and it would be weird, to say the least, if Nick pled the 5th on Phil's show. 

And finally, warning to Dr. Phil ... Nick has proven flaky in the past, so cross your fingers and hope he shows.
