Tila Tequila

Apologizes ... I'm Not Pro-Hitler

51 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

0830-tila-tequila-big-brother-TMZ-01Tila Tequila is doing a full mea culpa for sympathizing with Hitler during a 2013 rant which led to her to get 86'd the first day of "Celebrity Big Brother UK."

Tila says, "I am in no way, shape or form a racist nor antisemitic, and absolutely 100% not a Nazi supporter." Tila says she immediately realized her mistake and wants a second chance with Big Bro.

Tila claims she'd been suffering from severe depression and drug addiction that was so bad she attempted suicide.

TMZ broke the story...Tila was booted from "Celebrity Big Brother" after producers said they couldn't tolerate someone who supported Hitler.

WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose

Fan Attempts Sneak Attack

After Smackdown

8/30/2015 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dean Ambrose, one of the giants in the WWE, was almost attacked during a taping of Smackdown ... attacked by a guy some say was holding a sharp object which at least one fan says was a knife.

It happened right after the show in Providence.  You see the would-be attacker come right for Ambrose, but a quick-thinking security uses a wrestling move of his own, body slamming him to the ground.

It's unclear what happened to the guy or what if anything he was clutching.

 Dean was unharmed.

Kanye and Kim

We Want to Help Guy Who Needs Kidney

With Yeezys

8/30/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-kanye-kim-tmz-01

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are trying to do a good thing for the guy who desperately needs a kidney and is trying to score one by dangling a pair of rare Yeezy Boosts ... but there's a problem.

Matt Neal, a 26-year-old Michigan man has Berger's disease, which causes kidney failure. He's on a transplant waiting list but perilously far down. So he came up with the idea of trading his Yeezys for an organ.

Kanye and Kim heard his story and were moved ... they say if he ends up making the trade they'll give him a brand new pair of the impossible to get pricey kicks. 

Now the tough news. Federal law makes it illegal for anyone to offer money or merchandise in return for an organ. There's no wiggle room ... the law is clear. 

Short story ... Matt needs help. The good news ... Matt's Facebook solicitation has moved lots of people, some of whom say they'll donate a kidney for free, which is totally legal.

Mark Cuban

I REJECT Your 'Hoverboard'

And What's My Player Doing There?

8/30/2015 7:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0830-w-caption-mark-cuban-iohawk-TWITTER-01Mark Cuban isn't messing around ... he's on the warpath against anyone who dares sell a "hoverboard," and it could be one of his basketball players is about to learn a hard lesson on the subject of crossing his boss.

John Soibatian, Prez of IO Hawk, made the offer Saturday, to give Mark one of his very own.  The subtext is great ... Mark just partnered with the guy who owns the patent to the device and has said he's planning on suing everyone who markets a knockoff.

Soibatian apparently thought he could win Mark over by posing with JaVale McGee ... who just signed as center for the Dallas Mavericks -- THE TEAM MARK OWNS!

Mark's response makes it clear ... judgment day is coming.  And BTW, what's JaVale thinking?

Elle Fanning

Banking On Oscar

For New Movie Payday

8/30/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828_elle_fanning_oscar_cash_compositeElle Fanning's not exactly hauling in Jennifer Lawrence money yet -- she's only 17 -- but she's got a shot at earning that kinda scratch from her next job ... IF she turns in an award winning performance.

Luckily for Dakota Fanning's kid sis there's already some Oscar buzz for "About Ray" -- a movie she's only getting $65,000 to make -- base salary, anyway. That's the bad news. 

The good news is Elle's playing a teenage girl transitioning to a boy. In other words, it's exactly the kinda flick Oscar voters tend to eat up ... and that will put a ton of bonus money in her bank account.

According to her contract, Elle gets $100k if she's nominated for and wins a Golden Globe -- and another $167k for an Oscar nod and win!

There's also a $250k bonus if 'Ray' earns $45 million worldwide at the box office -- which would be really impressive for a small budget film. 

For your consideration ... a teenager looking to make a buck.

Lindsay Lohan

I Got the Motion in the Ocean

8/30/2015 7:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan can be bizarre on land and sea.

She was on a yacht in St. Tropez Saturday, when she busted a weird series of moves that she felt was good enough to post but then had second thoughts because she immediately took it down.

Lindsay's still hangin' on yachts ... she's doing something right.

Courtney Stodden

Happy 21st Birthday ...

Drunk Girl!!!

8/30/2015 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It seems Courtney Stodden's been around long enough that she'd be on the backside of 20 by now, but she actually just turned 21, and she clearly liquored it up Saturday during a big celebration.

Courtney was out with hubby Doug Hutchinson at Tortilla Republic in WeHo, and the scene was crazy and loud.   

An Uber was the source of friction and joy.

Young Dro

Stripper Says Rapper Stole My Car ...

And Got Me Busted

8/30/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-young-dro-TWITTER-01Young Dro has not only royally pissed off a stripper, she says he set her up and got her arrested for weed and an illegal gun.

According to a police report, Dro was in a city near Atlanta in February when he went to a stripper friend and asked to borrow her Cadillac. She agreed, with one condition ... that he pick her up after her shift at the Pink Pony.

Dro stood the stripper up, so she used her OnStar to track down the Caddy, which she found in a parking lot. Turns out cops were interested in the car as well, because they had just seen 2 men wildly driving it. So the stripper and cops showed up at the same time.

PROBLEM: Cops saw a big bag of weed in plain view in the backseat. That triggered a search, which produced a gun that turned out to be stolen.

To the stripper's shock, cops arrested her for the ganja and the gun.  

When the stripper got sprung, she filed a grand theft auto report against Dro, and cops arrested him.

An Uber would have been so much easier.
