Drake

Loving Life Down Under ...

New Chick's Bikini

3/3/2015 7:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0303-drake-girl-perth-poolside-SPLASH-01Drake did a little importing for his Australian tour -- flying in a hot chick -- from NY to keep him company.  

The "If You're Reading This It's Too Late" rapper was chilling at his hotel pool in Perth, Australia, wearing a smoking babe in a bikini, named Bernice Burgos. We're told they met back in NYC ... and she's clearly hot enough to warrant a plane ticket half way around the world. 

By the way, rare shots of Drake shirtless. He ain't hardcore, but he's looking ... fit.

Fashion Police

Open Season On Kelly's Seat ...

And Kathy Wants Final OK

3/3/2015 11:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Fashion Police Kelly Osbourne Replacement

Kelly Osbourne's departure opened the floodgates ... Hollywood agents are scrambling to get their clients a shot at her "Fashion Police" seat -- but they'll have to get past Kathy Griffin first. 

Our sources at the network say it's been inundated by candidates -- pitched mostly by agents from CAA and WME. We're also told E! execs are squashing Kathy's desire to apply the stamp of approval. They say the final choice will be theirs.  

So far Naya Rivera, Christina Milian, NeNe Leakes, and Khloe Kardashian remain the front runners, but we're told it's still anybody's game.

Fashion fight!

Lou Ferrigno

Exercises His Right to Threaten Bro

... With a Lawsuit

3/3/2015 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lou Ferrigno Brother Exercise EquipmentLou Ferrigno is angry at his brother (and you won't like him when he's angry) but instead of turning green ... he's skipping right to threatening a lawsuit over his bro's exercise equipment business. 

Lou and his brother Andrew had a legal skirmish a few years back and eventually reached a settlement ... which Lou says limits Andrew to using the phrase "Andrew Ferrigno equipment." He also has to make it clear his biz has no affiliation with Lou's companies and websites.  

Lou claims Andrew has violated the order because he's using the word "exercise" in the name of his store ... and insists the disclaimer is nowhere to be found on Andrew's website or social media.  

Lou's lawyers sent a letter threatening to sue ... and Andrew tells us since then he's met all of his brother's demands. Well, except for removing the word "exercise" from his store's name. 

Andrew tells TMZ, "My brother has money, so why does he need to suck me dry? I am so bewildered by the fact that an actor of his stature would stoop so low as to sue his own brother twice."

Nick Cannon

Shaking Off Mimi

Three Asses at a Time

3/3/2015 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

You get a ride! YOU get a ride!! Everybody got a ride on Nick Cannon while he was partying in Jamaica ... and we got video of all the women who lined up to get a piece of him.  

Nick was at Susie's Cafe in Kingston last week when one woman backed it up on his crotch while he was dancing -- and that started the train rolling. Chick after chick after chick ... all getting up close with some Cannon crotch. 

You gotta see Nick in action ... pretty impressive.

All of this was for work ... sorta ... since Nick is in Jamrock scouting locations for a movie he's directing down there in April.

Ah ... who name Mariah, mon?

Steve Francis

VIOLENT CHAIN SNATCHING

At Houston Rap Show [Video]

3/3/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0303-stevie-launch-07NBA legend Steve Francis was the victim of a violent chain snatching at a rap show in Houston this weekend ... and TMZ Sports has footage of the brazen attack. 

The 38-year-old, 3-time NBA All-Star was onstage with the Sauce Twinz -- a Houston rap duo -- when someone crept up on the unsuspecting Francis and tried to rip his gold chain right off his neck. 

Problem is ... the chain didn't pop -- and Francis was dragged down to the floor where the culprit continued to yank on the necklace while the discombobulated NBA star tried to figure out what was going on. 

Sources tell us the guy ended up removing the chain from Francis and booked it. 

We're also told police were NOT called to the scene. 

As for the perp, no word on his ID -- or if he's connected to the Sauce Twinz. 

We reached out to Francis and the Twinz for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Bobby Brown
's family is grieving over the dire circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina ... and we've learned they're also shooting a reality show.

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ ... Bobby's 2 sisters, brother and their kids are shooting the show about their lives, and part of it will chronicle Bobbi Kristina fighting for her life.

Bobby's lawyer tells TMZ his client will NOT appear on the show.

Bobby's sisters have a history. Leolah is the one who went on the record blaming Ray J for Whitney Houston's death, claiming he fatally fueled her cocaine habit.

Tina is the one who did a sit-down interview and claimed she did crack with Whitney. Tina and Shayne are also the ones who fought at a hotel near the hospital. She hit her son Shayne with a bottle. It's unclear if that will be on the show.

It appears that they have not shot video in the hospital, but we're told they have regular debriefs at home on camera where they talk about the tragedy.

1st Pics As Apollo's Grandson

... In New Rocky Flick

3/3/2015 6:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael B Jordan New Rocky MovieApparently, patriotic trunks run in the family -- 'cause Michael B. Jordan was sporting Apollo Creed's famous shorts when he stepped in the ring to play A.C.'s grandson in the new "Rocky" flick ... and TMZ Sports has the 1st pics.    

Jordan was going toe-to-toe with real-life pro boxer Tony Bellew -- who plays a boxer named "Pretty Ricky" in the upcoming movie. 

The pics were taken on February 26th ... just a few days before hell broke loose on the set -- with Sylvester Stallone jumping in the ring to break up a REAL BRAWL that went down between Bellew and an actor playing one of his corner men.  

Reps for the studio tell us the fight never got physical -- multiple witnesses tell us otherwise.  

As for Apollo Creed himself ... he died in "Rocky IV." 

Sucks for Carl Weathers.

Kim Kardashian

Nabs Huge Pianist

To Achieve Musical Dream

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

0224_kim_kardashian_piano_tmz_compositeKim Kardashian hasn't tried to impress a pianist this much since ... well, ever ... because she's taking lessons from a classically trained musician -- and no, she's not only playing the black keys.

Kardashian family sources tell TMZ ... Kim recently reached out to classical pianist Oksana Kolesnikova after a recommendation from no less an authority than Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds.

We're told Kim's been laser focused on her lessons with Oksana -- who, by the way, might be the hottest piano teacher in L.A. ... not that it matters.

You might think Kanye West is her musical inspiration -- but we're told Kim's interest in piano goes back to watching her father play when she was a child. She also played violin in grade school, and plans to pick that up again ... since Kourtney just gave her one for Christmas. 

Kim could make her debut in May -- Oksana tells us she's invited her to perform at a recital where her students show off their skills. We're told Kim has a special song planned to surprise her family.

Kim Kardashian tickling ivories ... imagine that.

Kevin Hart & Ellen DeGeneres

Oscars' Past Meets Its Future ...

Possibly, We Hope

3/3/2015 6:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If there's one thing Kevin Hart knows ... it's how to build anticipation -- well, that and comedy -- and he fueled up the Oscars hosting hype train with his dinner date Monday night.

Kevin hit up Craig's with Ellen DeGeneres -- making us think he might be looking for tips on how to land the 2016 Oscars gig ... for which he's been rumored to be a candidate.

The buzz has been building since the second NPH wrapped up this year's debacle, and this video will certainly add to it.

Ellen didn't say much about the meeting, but all 5'4" of Kevin did play bodyguard for her as she walked to her car -- which is funny enough to see.

Larry King

I Want to Be the Next Host

of 'Fashion Police'

3/3/2015 5:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Khloe Kardashian and NeNe Leakes might be the favorites to fill the empty chair on "Fashion Police," but there is a new contender throwing his hat into the ring ... Larry King.

Yes, the octogenarian wants a shot at the gig and demonstrated his couture knowledge Monday night by critiquing the outfits of some younger people on his way into BOA.  

King doesn't seem to know things like the names of designers (he's baffled by Vans) or have any fashion sense of his own .... but he'd still make a helluva host!

DJ Khaled

All He Does Is Stiff

... Sued By Jeweler

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

0227-dj-khaled-tmz-01
DJ Khaled was slapped with a lawsuit by a NY jeweler who says the rapper ordered a ton of bling, but refused to pay for a thing -- and is now more than $100,000 in the red.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Khaled got 2 Rolex watches, a custom made diamond chain, a pair of diamond earrings, and a 4 carat diamond ring from Rafaello & Company in 2012.

R&C says it had a written agreement with Khaled that gave him 15 days to check out any jewelry the company sent him. The deal was ... if he liked the goods, he would pay -- and if not, send 'em back.

But in the lawsuit, R&C says Khaled did neither -- keeping the watches, chain, earrings and ring ... and never paid a dime for them when he was billed. 

We reached out to Khaled's rep, and so far no word back -- but as his biggest hit says ... "Got money on my mind, I can't never get enough."

Sues Dad for Unger Games

He Blew My Cash On His GF

3/3/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0302-billy-unger-tmz-01The star of Disney's "Lab Rats" ... Billy Unger got fleeced by his own dad/manager, who used the cash to impress a chick ... according to a lawsuit filed by Billy.

In the docs ... Billy says his popager William Unger mishandled nearly $400K of his earnings last year. He also says his dad was gouging him for a 33.3% commission ... when the industry standard is between 10% and 20%.

Billy says his dad even siphoned away $120K to whisk away his GF on lavish vacations, and bankroll her living expenses. And it gets worse -- in the suit, Billy says his dad "despicably" took out a $1 million life insurance policy on him and made himself the sole beneficiary. 

Billy's asking a judge to order his dad to repay the missing money, plus damages.

For his part ... William Unger claims his son's accusations are "false and frivolous" -- and he blames the lawsuit on a "manipulative negative force in [Billy's] life whose sole focus is to administer pain." He added, "I love Billy with all my heart" ... and he wants to rebuild their relationship.
