Zayn Malik

He Speaks!!! He Thanks 1D

And He's Asian!

7 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

Zayn Malik broke his silence Friday night -- come to think about it we haven't heard him speak before -- and he heaped praise on his former band, One Direction.

Zayn accepted a trophy at the Asian Awards in London.  The award was for Outstanding Achievement in Music.  Interesting, because it's the only awrard Zayn can accept independent of the band.  He's getting it because of his Pakistani heritage.

It sounds like there's no beef with the boys.

Zayn's speech seems heartfelt ... it's actually kinda sweet.

Hookers for Hillary

From Whore House

To the White House!!!

4/18/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Hillary Clinton just got an endorsement from a group that hundreds of thousands of men have endorsed ... hookers.

Hookers for Hillary is all fired up, and shouting her praises from Nevada's famed Bunny Ranch.  

You gotta hear Ava Adora's ringing endorsement. She's amazingly articulate and insightful. Short story, she knows why America is in danger of becoming a plutocracy, and you probably don't. 

On the other side of the spectrum, take a look at Air Force Amy. She, well, has big boobs.

Selena Gomez

I'm Making Hits, Not Hit-Boy

In Mexico

EXCLUSIVE

0417-SUB-selena-gomez-mexico-INSTAGRAM-01

Selena Gomez's trip south of the border is strictly professional, meaning she's not banging Hit-Boy.

Selena caused quite the stir in that ugly bikini earlier this week, but less prominent was the famed producer who was by her side. Stories started surfacing that they were dating.

Our Selena sources say not true. They're recording an album at the home of Joe Francis, Casa Aramara, in Punta Mita.

Turns out Kanye and Kim went to Joe's house last year and he build a sick recording studio on the compound. Hit-Boy -- who's produced hits for Kanye, Jay Z, Chris Brown, Snoop, Bieber and many others -- heard the studio was gold and that's why he chose it for Selena.

There are extra perks ... an awesome beach, and even a sea lion that swims in Joe's pool.

BTW -- black bathing suit MUCH hotter.

Busted for Coke & Ecstasy

breaking news

0417-jarret-stoll-GETTY-01L.A. Kings superstar Jarret Stoll -- boyfriend of Erin Andrews -- was arrested in Vegas on suspicion on drug possession ... for allegedly bringing cocaine and ecstasy to a Vegas pool party.

According to local reports, 32-year-old Stoll was busted Friday at the Wet Republic pool party at the MGM Grand.

Stoll was reportedly taken into custody by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. Unclear if Andrews was with him at the time.

Stoll was taken to Clark County Detention Center -- where he was booked. Bail was set at $5,000.

Stoll was clearly in Vegas to unwind after the Kings were eliminated from contention from the NHL playoffs. 

The Kings have issued a statement saying, "We are aware of police reports out of Clark County, Nevada regarding Jarret Stoll."

"Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation. While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time."

Jay Z, Roc Nation

I'm Now the Master of My Own Destiny

EXCLUSIVE

Jay Z Copyright Lawsuit DismissedJay Z is once again the proud owner of some historic music.

Jay has been in an epic battle with a guy who was holding the masters to The Life and Times of S. Carter and The Dynasty albums hostage. There were 41 tracks, 31 with Jay and 10 with Beanie Sigel.

Chauncey Mahan, a sound engineer on the albums, claimed ownership and stashed boxes of tracks in a San Fernando Valley storage facility.  

Cops eventually seized the masters, but Mahan didn't back down. He sued Jay and Roc Nation in July, trying to get a piece of the action.

A judge just shut him down, ruling he waited way too long to sue.

So Jay Z owns his stuff outright.

BTW ... 'Life and Times' went triple platinum and contains songs like "Big Pimpin' and "Jigga my N****."

In Even More Secret Divorce

EXCLUSIVE

Zachary Levi Missy Peregrym DivorceLess than a year after "Chuck" star Zachary Levi and Missy Peregrym shocked their fans by getting secretly married in Hawaii last June ... the couple is now headed for divorce.

Missy was the one who filed in L.A. last week, and the docs make it sound like this is gonna be pretty amicable. According to Missy, neither of them wants spousal support, and there's no community property ... so, no reason to squabble over it.

Missy, who's on "Rookie Blue," lists their date of separation as December 3 ... which means things got rocky before they even hit the six month mark.

In a recent interview, Zachary spoke openly about how challenging marriage can be.

Little did we know.

Suge Knight's Big Break

Victim Blames Himself for Death

4/17/2015 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight has got a powerful weapon ... not a gun, and not a car. It's the guy he ran over who lived and told cops he was responsible for the other victim's death. 

Cle Bone Sloan told LAPD officers the same day he was mowed down by Suge's truck, "I was in a rage. I f***ed up. I get that 'cause a guy is dead behind this s**t."

TMZ first posted the video of the accident, and you see Bone attack Suge almost the second he enters the Tam's parking lot in Compton.  

Suge claims it was all a set up and Bone as well as others were trying to do him in, and he gunned it to save his life. Suge ran over bone, critically injuring him. Another victim, Terry Carter, died.

The court released photos of Suge's face, which appear to show the injuries he suffered when Bone attacked him. There's also a mug shot of Suge. 

Suge's attorneys are going to use the audio to make the argument ... how can a jury convict Suge if someone else confessed?
