Erykah Badu I Know Rappers, and ... You're No Rapper, Iggy Azalea!

11/30/2015 6:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Just when Iggy Azalea thought it was safe to leave home ... Erykah Badu hit her with a ton of shade while hosting the Soul Train Awards.

Erykah opened the show by taking a slight shot at herself -- pointing out that hip-hop fans give her crap for making rappers "change gods and wear crochet hats" (see Andre 3000) ... but it was all a setup for this shot at Iggy.

Check it out ... the crowd loved it, but it'll be a while before Iggy sees the sun again. Just so much shade.


Jimmy Jam Adele Has Numbers But Janet's Still Got Her On ...

39 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

Adele is crushing Janet Jackson's comeback album -- and everyone else's for that matter -- on the charts, but Janet's longtime collaborator says don't hand Adele the crown just yet. 

We got legendary producer Jimmy Jam outside Staples Center, and to be clear ... dude has a ton of respect for Adele and the record-breaking success of "25" -- but he didn't back down when it came to defending Janet's "Unbreakable" album.

Jimmy's bottom line -- it's not ONLY about how many records you sell right now, and there's still one category where Adele can't touch JJ! 

Does he have a point? Check it out. 


Joe Jonas Hitting Delete ... On Gigi & Zayn

27 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

1130-joe-jonas-gigi-zayn-getty-tmzJoe Jonas just did the bro version of drowning your sorrows over an ex in a tub of ice cream -- he gave Gigi Hadid and her new man Zayn Malik the dreaded social media cold shoulder. 

Guess Joe's seen enough, since he tapped the unfollow button on Gigi's IG over the holiday weekend -- right after Gigi and Zayn made their new romance pretty darn official.

The IG diss went further ... fans noticed Joe also deleted a photo of himself with Zayn and Kanye West he'd posted in June. The caption simply had read #squad.

1130-subasset-joe-jonas-twitterUnsquading ... it's a thing now.

Tyga No Deal On New Kylie-Adjacent Crib

11/30/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123_tyga_house_photos_launchTyga's dropping all kinds of excuses for not closing the deal on a pricey Calabasas home close to Kylie Jenner, but there are some strong signs why the sale keeps stalling out.

Sources tell us Tyga's been in escrow 3 times on the $10 million, 8 bedroom pad located in the same neighborhood where Kris Jenner, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian live.

We're told each time it gets close to closing, Tyga's got excuses -- such as being on the road or not getting paid -- for coming up short on cash.  

As we've reported, Tyga's got all sorts of money problems ... so he might be aiming high with a $10 million home.

Tony Dovolani Scientologists Followed Me ... Because of Leah Remini

11/30/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tony Dovolani says the Church of Scientology was hot on his tail during his stint with Leah Remini on "Dancing with the Stars" ... looking for any dirt they could find to discredit her ... even by association. 

Dovolani was at LAX, toting around Leah's book, 'Troublemaker,' -- when our photog asked if the Church harassed him. Tony unloaded. 

He's not afraid at all ... as he says, you tend to cherish your freedom when you come from Kosovo.

50 Cent His Lawyers Are Living High Life ... Sex Tape Victim Gripes

11/30/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-50cent-tmz50 Cent owes Lastonia Leviston millions for releasing her sex tape, so it makes sense she's upset his bankruptcy lawyers are living in the lap of luxury, and racking up huge expenses in the process.

Leviston, who won a $7 million judgement from Fiddy, filed docs calling out the rapper's legal team for dropping $57,241.76 on hotels alone while working on his bankruptcy case. Their legal research tab comes to $14,800.66, and a court reporter ran 'em $26,890. 

In the docs, Leviston calls these expenses unreasonable ... especially since 50 Cent filed for Chapter 11 in July. As part of his bankruptcy case, 50 has to regularly file his expenses with the court, and Leviston's not happy with the numbers.

She doesn't spell it out in her docs, but it seems Leviston's concerned 50 Cent won't have enough cash left to pay her if the lawyers are bleeding him dry. 

She wants a judge to reject the lavish reimbursements, and her message is pretty clear -- I'm watching where your money goes, Fiddy!

Kim Fields 'RHOA' Can Wait ... I Got Math Homework

11/30/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-kim-fields-rhoa-GETTY-01Kim Fields isn't making her new 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' gig a priority, according to co-workers who find her impossible to work with ... due to an inflated ego. 

Sources on set tell us some of Kim's co-stars are livid she's been showing up late and leaving early for shoots. In one case, we're told she left Kandi Burruss' baby shower early -- during taping -- so she could help her kids do math homework.  

Also, when they were filming in Jamaica, Kim showed up with her kids even though producers told the cast absolutely NO KIDS.

We're told Kim acts like she's better than everyone else, and still in her '80s heyday of 'Facts of Life.' Sources close to Kim say that's way off base, and she's a "consummate pro" who works with producers to ensure she meets her responsibilities to work and family. They also point out she shows up for every shoot on time and in good spirits. 

But with other cast members feeling like Kim disrespects 'RHOA' rules and schedules ... we'd say there's a juicy chick fight brewing.

This will be Kobe Bryant's final season in the NBA ... he just made it official by penning a love letter to basketball.

Kobe says the 2015-16 season will be his last in the Lakers purple and gold -- and any other uniform. In the letter, posted on The Players' Tribune, Kobe writes ... "Dear Basketball, From the moment I started rolling my dad's tube sock and shooting imaginary game-winning shots ... I fell in love with you."

He also said, "This season is all I have left to give. My heart can take the pounding, my mind can handle the grind, but my body knows it's time to say goodbye. And that's OK. I'm ready to let you go."

The letter's pretty extraordinary, and kind of emotional.

37-year-old Kobe closed with -- "I'll always be that kid with the rolled up socks. Garbage can in the corner, :05 on the clock, ball in my hands. 5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1. Love you always, Kobe."

11/29/2015 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

1128-sinead-oconnor-gettyupdate_graphic_red_bar10:55 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources confirm Sinead has been found "safe and sound" somewhere in Dublin, and she's getting medical attention.update_grey_gray_barSinead O'Connor has taken an overdose of pills in response to a "horrific set of betrayals" ... at least according to an emotional message she posted blasting her family and blaming them for her suicide.

The note, posted Sunday morning, alleges "appalling cruelty" on the part of her husband, her children and even her son's girlfriend -- and she says it all started when she had a hysterectomy in August. Sinead claims they've been keeping her babies from her, and she just couldn't take it anymore.

The 48-year-old singer wrote, "I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home. I'm at a hotel, somewhere in Ireland, under another name."

She adds she's been, "Howling crying for weeks. And been told by them all to go f*** myself. I'm invisible. I don't matter a shred to anyone."

1128-subasset-sinead-oconnorSinead has four children, ranging in age from 9 to 28. She's currently married to Barry Herridge -- the therapist she married in Las Vegas after meeting on the Internet.

It's unclear if family or friends have begun searching for Sinead. We've reached out to her reps, but no word back yet.


Kendall Jenner Take that Lady Godiva!!!

1128-kendall-jenner-instagramKendall Jenner just attempted to up the Kardashian's game by posting a nude shot -- but turns out she's guilty of social media horseplay.

Kendall put up the equestrian themed pic with no caption, and more importantly ... no credit ... because that ain't her on the horse! Of course.

It's a French model named Elisa Meliani (@elisajazz on iG) ... who originally posted herself and her fav stead last year. Elisa isn't pissed about Kendall jacking her photo though.
