Machine Gun Kelly Broken Sternum Delays Concert Dates

4/28/2017 1:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Machine Gun Kelly is down for the count with broken bones in his chest ... an injury he suffered while shooting a movie last week.

MGK's rep tells TMZ ... he has a contusion and hairline fracture of the sternum (breastbone), and that's why he's had to reschedule the first 3 stops on his tour. Kelly announced the postponements Thursday night on social media, but kept quiet about the injury.

As we reported ... Kelly struggled through a show last weekend in Florida, even walking off stage at one point. Although he finished the show, it was obvious he was in a ton of pain.

Bad timing for the rapper ... his new album, "Bloom," comes out next month ... however, the rep says he's expected to make a full recovery, and Kelly will make up the tour dates.

BTW, the movie he was filming is called "Captive State." We're guessing he'll use a stunt man for any reshoots.

Most Interesting Man in the World Is a Rose All Day Kinda Guy

4/28/2017 1:03 PM PDT

Harsh reality here about Dos Equis' new Most Interesting Man in the World -- dude loves him some rosé!

The new guy, whose name is Augustin Legrand, was chilling Thursday at Sant Ambroeus in NYC's West Village. So, let's see ... he has a French name, and he's at a French restaurant ... so maybe the rosé makes sense.

Sure his beer bosses might not be thrilled with the image, but we're guessing his contract doesn't require him to drink Dos Equis 24/7.

As they say in Paris -- Reste soif, mes amis!


Migos Response to Theft Lawsuit We're In L.A., Bitch!!

4/28/2017 12:42 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Migos pulled the ol' "everyone in L.A. does it" excuse in its legal war with a stylist claiming the group ran off with $20k worth of wardrobe items.

The group says they shouldn't be punished with extra damages in the lawsuit brought by stylist Marcus Clark because stuff disappearing from music video shoots happens all the time in Hollywood.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Migos straight-up says, "This is Los Angeles. If an artist allegedly removing items from a music video, fashion shoot etc. constituted malicious or oppressive conduct, courts would be inundated with lawsuits."

Translation: Get over it. It ain't that bad.

For the record, Migos is not copping to jacking the wardrobe. They're just saying L.A.'s got a rep.

The stylist not only sued for the $20k worth of stuff taken from the set, he wants more than a million bucks in damages. Migos says the mil is absurd.

TMZ broke the story ... the stylist accused Migos of walking out with shirts and vintage shades after shooting Niykee Heaton's "Bad Intentions" video.

Ja Rule Apologizes for Fyre Disaster IT WASN'T A SCAM!!!

4/28/2017 11:57 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ja Rule's broken his silence hours after his Fyre Festival was called off following a disastrous start ... and he insists it was NOT a scam.

The rapper said Friday his main priority is "getting everyone [off] the island SAFE" and he'll elaborate on the calamity that unfolded just days before his first ever festival kicked off at the Bahamas this weekend.

Ja Rule also said, "I'm heartbroken ... it was NOT A SCAM as everyone is reporting. I don't know how everything went so left but I'm working to make it right by making sure everyone is refunded."

The rapper went on to say he apologizes but says, "this is NOT MY FAULT," but is taking responsibility.

A U.S. State Department official tells us they're monitoring the situation and "stand ready to provide appropriate consular services to any U.S. citizens in need."

As we reported ... Ja's festival looked more like a refugee camp and ticket holders who paid between $1k to $12k walked into living accommodations which looked like they had been used in previous disaster relief efforts, empty beer stands and "gourmet food" that turned out to be 2 pieces of bread and 2 pieces of cheese.

Aaron Rodgers Golf Date with 'Baywatch' Actress

4/28/2017 10:33 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Aaron Rodgers was spotted at an L.A. golf course Thursday with a very attractive blonde -- and we're told it's "Baywatch" actress Kelly Rohrbach.

Just a few weeks after reports surfaced he split with longtime girlfriend Olivia Munn -- the Green Bay Packers quarterback hit up the Westchester Golf Course. 

Witnesses tell us Rodgers and Rohrbach appeared to be holding hands and looked flirty -- until they noticed people watching them.

Both Rodgers and Rohrbach are avid golfers -- so maybe it was just a platonic trip to the links.

Then again, maybe not.

Ja Rule's Fyre Festival Bahamas Blames Organizers ... You Cost Us Millions!

4/28/2017 10:10 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

The crap storm of Ja Rule's now cancelled Fyre Festival hurts the Bahamas as much as it does concertgoers ... in fact, probably more because tourism is EVERYTHING on the island.

Sources at the Bahamas tourism board tell us ... they were ecstatic about Ja's first annual "luxury" music fest because it was going to be a huge moneymaker and great pub for the islands. 

We're told the Bahamas stands to lose out on millions with the festival being called off ... and tourism officials are devastated. The Ministry of Tourism released a statement saying it's "extremely disappointed" ... especially because it offered to help the fest organizers.

Our sources say event planners were in way over their heads ... grossly unprepared for an expected crowd of at least 6,000. However, they don't think the Fyre Festival was a scam, it was just too poorly organized to continue.

'Bachelor' Chris Soules Cops Get Search Warrant For Getaway Car & Blood Tests

4/28/2017 9:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Iowa cops have pulled out the legal guns to locate the vehicle that took 'Bachelor' Chris Soules from the scene of the fatal crash.

TMZ has obtained documents showing police have obtained a search warrant for the red Chevy. As we reported, after calling 911 and then checking the pulse of the tractor driver who later died, the Chevy came along, Chris jumped in and left before cops arrived.

Cops want the Chevy as evidence, although it's unclear why. Since the accident occurred Monday, any alcohol present in the vehicle would be irrelevant, since it would not prove what was inside at the time of the accident.

Cops are clearly interested in the results of the blood tests that were taken at the hospital hours after the accident. The search warrant allows police to obtain the results from the hospital.

As we reported, police want to know if Chris was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash. Problem is ... when cops found Chris at his house he refused to come out until they got a search warrant, so the blood test results would not reliably show Chris' blood alcohol level at the time of the crash.

Beyonce and Jay Z We Can't Find a House in L.A. On Our Budget!!!

4/28/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce and Jay Z have learned the hard way it's hard to find a dream home when you're on a budget, even if the budget is $80 MILLION!!!

Bey and Jay have been looking at homes in L.A. for several years, but they've come up empty. Multiple real estate sources tell us, the couple has been pretty firm they don't want to pay more than $80 mil, but they have looked at homes above their price range.

They looked at a Bel Air home for $135 million about a month ago, but our sources say they are NOT buying that house.

There are a few homes they're currently eyeing, but so far they haven't written an offer.

So, you ask, how can you have an $80 million budget and not get your dream house? Well, if you want the best of the best in the City of Angels, you just have to go higher. Check out the gallery.

Megyn Kelly Kicks Off New Show With Kardashian Fam

4/28/2017 8:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Megyn Kelly will debut her new show with a sit-down with the entire Kardashian family ... minus 2.

Sources involved in the interview tell TMZ ... the reason Megyn was on the set of 'KUWTK' Thursday was to tape a very long interview with Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall, and Kris ... everyone but Rob and CailtynRyan Seacrest, the producer and brainchild of the show, was also interviewed.

You don't see Kim in the pics, but we're told she was there.

Our sources say they were told the interview would consume Kelly's premiere Sunday night show in June on NBC.

The entire family rarely does interviews together ... nonetheless it's unclear whether Kelly walked away with a headline.

Kim discussed her Paris robbery this week on 'Ellen.'

As we reported, the NBC Prez went to Russia recently and the buzz is he was trying to score an interview with Putin. Contenders to interview the Russian Prez were Lester Holt, Matt Lauer and Megyn. If the Kardashians are the premiere show, it's safe to say Megyn's not sittin' with Putin.

J Lo THE Dress Wins Everything At Billboard Latin Awards

4/28/2017 7:22 AM PDT

Jennifer Lopez dominated the Billboard Latin Music Awards -- before singing a single note -- by showing up in a black dress that showed almost everything.

Easy to see why her wardrobe selection is all the buzz after Thursday night's ceremony in Miami -- and like a true diva, Jenny changed outfits during the show. The silver option was a WINNER too.

She ain't stupid. J Lo remembers (so do we) how famously the "less is more" formula worked for her 17 years ago.

Bottom line? It ain't broke ...

Ja Rule's Fyre Festival Promises of Luxury Delivers Refugee Camp Digs

4/28/2017 7:03 AM PDT

7:20 AM PT -- The party's officially over.

Festival organizers just announced ... "Due to circumstances beyond our control, we must postpone this experience. We are working tirelessly to ensure each guest leaves the island safely and ask for everyone’s patience and cooperation as we continue to provide ongoing updates via email and our official social media channels."

They added ... refund information will be coming.Ja Rule's Fyre Festival promised luxury but delivered what looks like a refugee camp. 

The festival -- the first annual -- kicked off Thursday in the Bahamas, but it's a disaster of epic proportions. Ticket holders paid between $1k and $12k, and what they got was unreal.

-- Living accommodations were used in previous disaster relief efforts

-- The beer stands were empty and the "gourmet food" turned out to be 2 pieces of bread and 2 pieces of cheese

-- The kitchen looks like what you would get when you're camping in the wilderness

-- Security lockers had no locks

Fyre's video pimping the festival showcased Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Emily Ratajkowski on a yacht as a way to lure fans to a luxurious paradise. Not exactly as advertised.

Blink 182 pulled out Thursday ... saying they're "not confident that we would have what we need to give you the quality of performances we always give fans."

Pretty clear Ja Rule didn't see this coming -- he posted a pic 2 days ago just before boarding a private jet headed for the festival.

Fyre released a statement, acknowledging "things got off to an unexpected start at day one."  

Nicely understated.

Oprah O My GOOdness!!! Kid Has nO Idea WhO I Am!

4/28/2017 8:14 AM PDT

Oprah was ready and willing to fork over $10 if a kid knew her name, but let's just say ... she still has the money.

O's company took part in Thursday's Take Your Kid to Work Day. One OWN employee's child came face-to-face with the TV legend, and she made a bet: say my name and you get the cash.

You gotta see it! The kid stands silent ... no clue who dad's boss is. Awkward? For Dad?

Soooo ... about that raise, Oprah.
