Sean Kingston Beaten By Migos Shot Fired

2/21/2017 8:29 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-migos-sean-kingston-01Sean Kingston was beaten up badly Tuesday and people on scene say Migos was the culprit ... but the story is bizarre and the group is not wanted by cops, at least not yet.

Law enforcement sources tell us it went down late afternoon at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Vegas. We're told Kingston and the guys from Migos got into it over an argument involving Soulja Boy and the 3 members of Migos beat Sean badly, allegedly kicking him and stomping on his head.

Law enforcement tells us someone from Sean's camp pulled out a gun and fired once, but didn't hit anyone. That person was detained by security and turned over to the Vegas PD.

By the time cops arrived both Sean and Migos had left. A short time later Sean was pulled over for a traffic stop and became "semi-cooperative," though he did not name names.

We're told police want to speak with Migos, but they are quick to add members of the group are not "wanted" by cops.

Alonzo Bodden, Ron White We Wouldn't Touch Correspondents' Dinner With a 10-Foot Pole

2/22/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Alonzo Bodden would NOT emcee the White House Correspondents' Dinner because he thinks it's a comedian's death sentence.

The 3rd season winner of "Last Comic Standing" admits the exposure would be great, but he would lose his African-American and Hispanic audience.

It's interesting ... he thinks the administration just can't take a joke, and that would suck the funny out of the room.

Ron White also says he'd pass on emceeing the dinner, but for a different reason ... he thinks roasting Trump is just sophomoric comedy for 3rd graders. He also has Aretha issues ... as in R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the office of president.

Mike Epps Alleged Victim Has Gnarly Black Eye

2/22/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-mike-epps-victim-eye-injury-photos-launch-3The guy accusing Mike Epps of attacking him in a New Orleans casino says these pics prove the comedian went HAM on his face.

TMZ obtained the shots of Algernon Pitre ... he claims he suffered the black eye, laceration and general swelling at the hands of Epps around 4 AM Saturday in Harrah's.

Pitre tells us he also has neck pain, and got a CT scan and X-rays. He's already lawyered up, but says he'll wait to see how the criminal case plays out before considering a lawsuit. 

As we reported, Epps was arrested for battery and no-showed for his arraignment. His reps had no comment, but on Tuesday he signed autographs and repeated, "I love my fans" like it's his mantra. Too little too late?

Natty Light Sued You Can't Use My Face to Hawk Booze ... Says Beer Swilling Chick

2/22/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-main-kayla-kraft-tmz-facebook-02She doesn't always drink Natty Light, but when she does ... a North Carolina chick doesn't want her face slapped on beer ads, damn it!

Kayla Kraft is suing Anheuser-Busch -- makers of the not-so-primo pilsner -- over a photo she posted of herself sipping on a 12-ouncer. She says the pic began appearing in Natural Light's "Every Natty Has A Story" campaign -- first, on coasters distributed to Carolina bars, and then on posters in bars, restaurants and stores.

Kayla says she put the pic on FB for anyone to see, but never gave consent to become Natty Light's poster child. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she owns the copyright on the pic -- and has even registered it with the U.S. Copyright Office.

Might seem like an odd move for a candid drinking pic, but she's going after the beer giant for a slice of its profits from the campaign.

Harrison Ford Video of Taxiway Landing

2/21/2017 5:44 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Harrison Ford's taxiway landing last Monday was caught on video, and it promises to be the centerpiece of the FAA investigation.

The video was captured by cameras trained on the runways at John Wayne Airport in Orange County. It shows Ford's approach which came dangerously close to an American Airlines 737, which was on the taxiway when the actor's plane passed overhead.

A man in the terminal who took a picture of the landing told us Ford had misjudged the runway and banked sharply before landing on the taxiway, but  that is not reflected in this video.

So, you're saying there's a chance!!! 

Josh McDermitt Walking Deadpan ... On 'Stranger Things' Run-In

2/21/2017 4:43 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Josh McDermitt can neither confirm nor deny whether he'll be in season 2 of "Stranger Things" ... but does have a funny way of explaining his run-in with the kid stars.

We got the 'Walking Dead' actor Tuesday at LAX, where our camera guy grilled McDermitt about a pic he posted Monday with 3 of the boys from the Netflix show ... with hashtags like #CrossoverEpisode fueling rumors he'll star in the upcoming season.

Like Josh says ... he can't talk about that. But he's happy to deadpan his way through their meetup in Portland.

President Trump Must Remember Black People's Sacrifices ... Says Wyclef Jean

2/21/2017 2:52 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump needs a refresher on the everyday tragedies African-Americans faced for years ... according to Wyclef Jean.

We asked 'Clef about Trump's Tuesday visit to the National Museum of African American History -- with Dr. Ben Carson -- and he told us what he HOPES the prez learned ... including tolerance for opposing viewpoints.

It's interesting ... Wyclef quoted Dave Chappelle's plea to give Trump a chance -- yet it definitely sounds like his patience for POTUS is wearing thin.

He was also ordered to pay the Hollywood Historic Trust and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce a total of $4,400 ... presumably the cost of repairing the damage and replacing portions of the star.

Otis must also do 20 days of Caltrans work ... possibly picking up trash by the freeway.

He did the deed October 26, 2016, to protest then-candidate Donald Trump.

Kesha Her Team Hammered Her On Weight Dr. Luke Provided Emotional Support

2/21/2017 1:54 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-dr-luke-kesha-TMZ-youtube-01Kesha's own team was obsessed with the singer's weight, while Dr. Luke -- the man she's suing for allegedly saying she looked like a "f***ing refrigerator" -- was emotionally supportive ... this according to new legal docs filed by Luke.

Dr. Luke's lawyers submitted emails from Kesha's managers and personal assistant, including one from one of her managers to another, saying, "She really sounds like someone who is doing drugs soo erratic. a couple of hours ago all is going well now she wants to dump the whole lot. this doesn't feel right even with Kesha standards." The reply ... "She is nuts!!!"

There were also references to keeping junk food away from Kesha, with a manager writing, "I definitely think there can't be junk food there for sure."  

Luke emailed Kesha back in 2010, "I know you said you looked like a lesbo but I disagree -- you looked radiant and beautiful. You're doing exactly what you're meant to be doing right now. You're actualizing your dreams. I'm proud of you and love you very much. xo L"

Kesha claims in her suit Luke sexually assaulted her and psychologically abused her.

Chris Brown Denies 'Bulls***' with Soulja Boy ... Karrueche Too?

2/21/2017 12:58 PM PST
Breaking News

Chris Brown is strongly denying something, but it's unclear if he's talking about his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran claiming he's making death threats, or about Soulja Boy -- either way, Chris looks rough around the edges.

Brown told his fans, "Make sure y'all don't be listening to all this bulls***." He never says Karrueche's name, but he could be referring to the story TMZ broke -- Karrueche getting a restraining order against him.

He also explains why he pulled out of the Soulja Boy boxing match -- blaming it on "homies" getting in the way -- and seems to challenge Soulja's crew to come get him.

What's clear is Chris has massive dark circles around his eyes, and seems to be in desperate need of some sleep.
