Paris Hilton

FAKED Horror in 'Plane Crash' Stunt ...

In on the Prank

7/2/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton is a better actress than we thought ... we've learned she was totally in on the "near plane crash" stunt.

TMZ has obtained a document prepared by the Egyptian production company behind the prank. Turns out Paris wasn't their first choice. The company sent the offer to the reps of other American celebs back in March, offering them big money to participate in the prank.  

The document states, "We will act as if something is going wrong and ask all passengers to jump off the plane!!! Of course everyone will panic, we'll be having skydivers in disguise with us on board."

The doc goes on, "We will monitor the funny reactions from our celebrity guest when they fear jumping off the plane."

And the document even mentions the stunt has the blessing of Dubai authorities ... "Dubai official authorities are monitoring this show and providing us with security. If you want to make sure, you can contact the office of crown prince of Dubai, his majesty Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He himself will be supervising the progress of the project."

Sources say the production company offered a huge amount of money to a willing celeb ... in the million dollar range. 

We got Paris out Wednesday in Bev Hills, and listen closely ... she talks about the pilot "taking it too far." The question ... what, if anything, was she expecting?

Ryan Seacrest

Junk-Grabbing ...

Wine-Guzzling Fun!

53 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

0702-ryan-seacrest-chris-boat-fameflynetThisssss ... is Ryan Seacrest acting like a raging frat boy on Spring Break -- with his buddy, Thor!

It's a side of Seacrest we never get to see -- but while partying with Chris Hemsworth on a yacht off the coast of Italy, he let loose ... swigging wine from a bottle and grabbing his crotch with reckless abandon.

Funniest part of Ryan's version of going HAM -- the bottle he's chugging from looks a lot like rosé. Yeah, it's probably a $1,000 bottle, but still ... rosé?

Baby steps.

Chrissy Teigen

A Nipple Is a Nipple

Is a Nipple ...

7/2/2015 8:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chrissy Teigen thinks nipples are like the Mona Lisa ... completely overrated. 

Teigen ran into our photog in Bev Hills Wednesday, telling us why she "f**ked" with Instagram this week with her bare boobie photo assault.

Clearly, C.T. doesn't think lady nips are a big deal ... and vows even MORE social media toplessness in the very near future. 

In other words, she's gonna milk this controversy for all it's worth.

Kevin Hart & The Rock

Smoke on Movie Set Sparks 'Beef'

With Mass. Fire Chief

7/2/2015 7:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Kevin Hart and The Rock engaged in some on-set hijinks when shooting for their new movie was interrupted by a minor fire emergency -- which accidentally led to K-Hart kinda pissing off a fire chief.

The Somerville Fire Department tells TMZ they responded to the call early Thursday morning. It wasn't much -- just a light fixture with smoke coming out of it, which took less than 15 mins to put down.

Kevin posted a funny vid with The Rock as they waited for firefighters to do their thing, but in his caption he mistakenly thanked the city of Boston instead of Somerville. The Somerville Fire Chief did NOT think that was a wickid pissa -- he quickly corrected Kev's mistake when we spoke to him. 

The chief did not add, "Say hi to your mother for me" -- but we know he was thinking it.

0702-donald-trump-miss-usa-01Donald Trump has found someone who likes him ... Reelz will air the Miss USA Pageant

After being dumped by Univision and NBC, Reelz swooped in and will broadcast the pageant on July 12.

In addition to losing its network, the pageant has seen its host, judges and musical guest bow out.

Trump is suing Univision for $500 million for allegedly bailing on their contract.

Cody Simpson

About Selena Gomez ...

Sometimes a Lick Is Just a Lick

7/2/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Cody Simpson is no "f**k boy" for Selena Gomez -- that’s his side of the story, anyway.

Our photog caught the Australian pop star and a buddy early Wednesday morn on the Sunset Strip, and asked about Selena's IG of them all enjoying cones and cream together.

Check it out ... Cody tried to shut down any rebound rumors by claiming he and his friend are "no f**k boys." Google it if you don't know it, but basically ... he ain't trying to bang her. Or so he says.  

His ex, Gigi Hadid, and Joe Jonas also came up ... and we're now 100% positive a Simpson-Jonas collabo will not be happening any time soon. Mostly though, this 2 AM-ish video is proof Cody and co. had a strong night at the bars!

Ahh, the single life.

NeNe Leakes

I'm Not Doing Season 8 'Housewives'

Not Even a Little Bit

7/2/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

NeNe Leakes made it clear to our photog ... 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' is on its own next season, because she will not appear at all ... not even occasionally.

Producers floated the possibility of a reduced role for NeNe in Season 8, but she shot that down in a big way Wednesday at LAX.

The buzz is that the show is in trouble without her. NeNe seems to agree.

And this is interesting ... she said her decision to leave the show never had anything to do with money.  

As we reported, she's signed on to do an ABC game show, "To Tell the Truth."

0630-mackenzie-mckee-vivid-TMZ-01Mackenzie McKee has gone to Vivid Entertainment about a sex tape, telling them if they dare release it she will nail their ass harder than Farrah Abraham's ever was. 

TMZ obtained a letter Mackenzie's lawyer fired off to the porn giant, acknowledging there's a tape but warning it will remain private, or else.

It's unclear how Vivid got hold of the tape, but here's what IS clear ... the only way Vivid can release the video is if she signs off, and her lawyer has given Vivid 10 days to declare its intentions.

As for her sex tape partner, it's unclear who it is, but she's been a married woman for 2 years.

Chris Brown

Files Paternity Docs

I've Had It With My Baby Mama!

7/1/2015 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0307-brown-nia-tmz-instagram-01Chris Brown has had it with baby mama Nia Guzman's child support and custody demands, so he's asking a judge to lay down the law once and for all.

Chris and Nia have been at war over 1-year-old Royalty. She's demanding $15k a month in child support, way more than Chris says is fair. 

We've learned Chris just filed legal docs in Houston to establish paternity. That will give him the right to fight Nia over support and custody.  

Chis has been paying Nia what he believes is a fair amount -- she claims he's been paying $2,500 a month. He wants a judge to set the figure, which he's confident will be closer to his number than hers.

Chris also wants a judge to establish clear custody guidelines. He says Nia has been denying him the right to see his daughter, so he wants a judge to set her straight.

EXCLUSIVE

0701_miley_cyrus_make_out_launch2Miley Cyrus has bagged herself a Victoria's Secret model ... and during a break from filming a new music video Tuesday night in Los Angeles ... they locked up in a heavy make-out session.

The girl's Stella Maxwell, and she and Miley have been hanging out quite a bit lately. Miley posted a photo with Stella a few weeks back and captioned it,emoji_miley

The photo and video were shot Tuesday night in a parking lot in Hollywood. They both saw the cameras and clearly kissed to make a point, and it did not seem like a typical Miley gag.

We had to blur the video because Miley's hand goes south with Stella's help.

Miley has said recently she's bisexual.
