Comedian Steve Brown Viciously Attacked During Set

1/22/2018 5:45 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Comic Steve Brown probably wishes he just got heckled Sunday night at a comedy club, because a disgruntled "fan" seemed gunning to kill him.

Steve was doing a set at the Comedy House in Columbia, South Carolina when a guy in the audience jumped onstage and just went insane, first trying to viciously strike Steve with the mic stand and then a stool.

Steve ducked out of the way and, a good 30 seconds into the attack, a few people at the club had the presence of mind to subdue the guy, who was taken outside but then came back.

The Richland County Sheriff's Dept. responded to the club, and has opened an investigation. So far, no arrests.

Steve escaped unharmed, but he's blasting the club for lack of security.

Joel McHale Aziz Ansari's Date Sounds Consensual to Me

1/22/2018 6:14 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Joel McHale is a staunch supporter of the #MeToo movement, but has big issues with allegations like the one leveled against Aziz Ansari.

We got Joel Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival when our photog asked about Aziz, who was a no-show Sunday night at the SAG Awards.

He's on the Ashleigh Banfield train ... saying it sounds like a bad date rather than sexual assault.

Joel seems to be saying a good number of the allegations against various Hollywood types are true, but not all, and he warns people not to jump to conclusions.

Khloe Kardashian Don't Forget Me ... 'KOKO Kollection' Makeup Coming

1/22/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian wants get in on what appears to be the new family business -- aka makeup ... TMZ has learned.

Khloe has applied to trademark a couple different names for a cosmetic line she presumably plans to sell soon -- one is "KOKO Kollection by Khloe Kardashian" and the other is simply "KOKO Kollection."

The specific products she plans to hawk aren't clear just yet, but her application covers a broad range of makeup merch. 

As you'll recall ... Kourtney also recently applied to lock down her own line of cosmetics, which she wants to call "Kourt." Of course, Kim and Kylie are already booming in the biz ... looks like the sisters decided to band together on this endeavor, too.

Like they say -- the family that applies foundation together ... has a makeup empire together.

Tank Nothing Wrong with Offset Using Term 'Queer'

1/22/2018 6:48 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tank is solidly behind Migos rapper Offset for using the term "Queer" on a track, saying the word is not always a slur against gay people.

We got Tank Sunday at LAX, and he bristled at the criticism over the track "Boss Life," which features Offset, saying the word is sometimes used in the rap game for people who aren't cool.

Fact is ... if you survey people on the word it's safe to say most would tell you it's a pejorative term against gay people.

That's certainly the way Kanye West felt 13 years ago when he appeared on MTV.

Drake Mega-Expensive Home Renovation ... YOLO!

1/22/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Drake is giving his YOLO Estate a face-lift, and the scope of the project is massive. 

The Toronto rapper has been remodeling his Hidden Hills mansion since March 2017, according to building permits obtained by TMZ. As for the work he's putting into the place, here are some highlights:

-- Remodel of the 1,695 sq ft master bedroom, plus adding 98 more ft.

-- Addition to the maid's room and the deck that sits above it

-- New roofs on all structures, new stucco siding

-- 68 new windows(!!)

Some other notables include putting in all new doors, remodeling the kitchen and master bath, and adding a spa. The permits value the total job at $342,752 ... but Drake's likely to pay much more than that when it's all said and done.

Drake bought the home in 2012, and it's been broken into multiple times. Hopefully these doors come with better locks.

SAG Awards 2018 1st Ever Host, Lots O' Color & Franco ... Go Behind the Scenes

1/21/2018 7:04 PM PST

The 24th annual SAG Awards was a mixed bag -- with the Time's Up movement as a backdrop ... there were some things (and people) we didn't expect to see. 

For starters ... Kristen Bell served as the award show's first-ever host -- and she kicked off an all-female ensemble of presenters for the night ... most of whom spoke out in support of Time's Up.

James Franco was also in attendance, despite recently being accused of sexual misconduct. Aziz Ansari, on the other hand, skipped the show amid his own allegations.

Morgan Freeman called out a would-be talker during his Lifetime Achievement award speech ... and women appeared to abandon the wardrobe blackout they adopted at the Globes.

Like we said ... tons of surprises. Go behind the scenes to check out the rest.

The Notorious B.I.G. Looking Down On His Murder Scene

1/22/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The marketing team behind "Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G" found a brilliant spot to promote the series ... right above Biggie's actual murder scene.

B.I.G. was gunned down March 9, 1997 as he left L.A.'s Petersen Automotive Museum -- on the corner of South Fairfax & Wilshire. Now, a huge billboard right above that intersection shows his face with the tagline "20 Years. Still Unsolved."  

The true crime scripted series also covers Tupac's murder, which happened 6 months before Biggie's. There is no billboard up at the Vegas intersection where 'Pac was killed. Not yet, anyway.

The show premieres February 27.

Morgan Freeman at SAG Awards Calls Out Front Row Chatterbox In Lifetime Achievement Speech

1/21/2018 6:42 PM PST

Morgan Freeman awkwardly called someone out during his Lifetime Achievement award speech at the SAG Awards Sunday ... but the person's identity remains a mystery. 

Freeman was just about to launch into his acceptance speech when he stopped and zeroed in on someone in the front row, who appeared to be talking and distracting him.

The legendary actor didn't let it go -- if anything, he dragged it out by saying ... "Hey ... I'm talking to you. Yeah, hey." He finally finished with ... "Okay, well you just stand out to me. That's all" before continuing with the rest of his speech.

We're digging to identify the culprit, but lesson learned to whomever that was ... don't interrupt Morgan Freeman!!

'The Dark Tower' Young Star Will Make Big Bucks IF He's in Sequels

1/22/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Taylor -- the young actor who plays Jake in "The Dark Tower" -- got a nice payday for his work in the film, but the big bucks are (hopefully) yet to come ... TMZ has learned.

According to the 16-year-old's contract ... Tom banked $125k for his role in the movie alongside Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey -- which is nice -- but will make double if he makes it into a sequel ... and $500k if there's a third installment. He'll also haul in $30k per episode if he lands the Jake role in a TV adaptation of Stephen King's story.

Here's the problem -- the movie massively disappointed critics after its summer release and reportedly barely broke even at the box office, taking in $111 million worldwide.

Since then, talk of a sequel's been muted, and even King has expressed concern about a TV project ... saying it would probably need to be a complete reboot.

Guess that's just show business, kid.

Yung Berg Wanted Man Again!! ... For Missing Court Date

1/22/2018 12:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Yung Berg apparently loves to learn the hard way -- not showing up to court is asking for trouble.

The 'Love & Hip Hop' star is a wanted man in Miami after missing ANOTHER court date following a weed bust. TMZ broke the story ... cops were called following an altercation in his hotel room back in October and they found 2 blunts on him. Normally, not a big deal but Berg had a 9-year-old warrant, so they arrested his ass.

He was later released, but was supposed to appear in court for his arraignment in the weed case on January 11 but -- you know how Berg's favorite game goes -- he never showed.

It's called Google Calendar, Berg.

Aziz Ansari Bails on SAG Awards 2018 ... Despite Best Actor Nom

1/21/2018 5:36 PM PST

Aziz Ansari bailed on the Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday amid an allegation of sexual misconduct ... this despite the fact he was nominated and the tide of public opinion seemed to be swinging his way.

Aziz was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series along with Larry David, Anthony Anderson, Sean Hayes, Marc Maron and William H. Macy. Aziz was not in the crowd as the camera panned to the nominees. Macy won the award.

As we reported ... Aziz was accused of sexual assault by an anonymous woman who said he pressured her into sex acts during a date last year.

His case has been interesting -- lots of women have come out against his accuser and the publication that first reported the accusation, including HLN's host Ashleigh Banfield.

Looks like the situation was just too much for Aziz. The same can't be said for James Franco -- who's also been accused of sexual misconduct ... he's there tonight.

Alison Brie Defends Bro-in-Law James Franco ... At SAG Awards 2018

1/21/2018 4:35 PM PST

James Franco has his sister-in-law squarely in his corner at the SAG Awards ... 'cause she just defended him amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Alison Brie -- who's married to James' younger brother, Dave Franco -- was talking to Giuliana Rancic Sunday at the Shrine Auditorium when she was asked about Time's Up and the accusations against her brother-in-law. 

She had a diplomatic response at first, saying the Francos supported anyone who felt victimized coming forward and speaking -- but then made it clear ... she supports her family, adding that not all of the info being reported about James was accurate. 

As we reported ... Franco stands accused of sexual misconduct by at least 5 women. He's denied the allegations against him, and has since avoided most public events.
