Cardi B Booted From Hotel Calls Staff 'Racist Motherf******'

10/22/2017 9:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

11:25 AM PT -- A rep for Albany PD tells TMZ ... the hotel's manager called cops around 1 AM to report a party on the 2nd floor, plus a smell of weed. We're told hotel staff had gone up and asked Cardi's team to leave, and when cops showed, they were packing their bags to exit. However, the PIO says no evidence pointed to the weed coming from anyone in Cardi's camp, but they left regardless. That's when Cardi was woken up and asked to join them, causing her outburst in the lobby. We're told no one was arrested, and that Albany PD denies allegations of racism.

10:12 AM PT -- Cardi just posted a video addressing the circumstances of her hotel exit in Albany, explaining she was booted for weed ... even though she denies partaking. She also accuses the city of Albany of being racist, saying she experienced that first hand. 

I’m not going for that

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

Cardi B was thrown out of a hotel early Sunday morning, and she went off accusing the staff of racism.

The rapper was staying at the Hilton Albany in Albany, New York, at at around 1 AM people started complaining about noise coming from her room. Cops tell us there was some sort of disturbance and when Cardi B was confronted by hotel security, it escalated and she was ordered to leave.

You hear her call someone on the staff a "racist motherf*****" and she storms out of the hotel with her entourage and an unidentified male.

Cardi B performed Saturday night at the Times Union Center.

It appears she briefly broke up with boyfriend Offset Saturday but then said she had overreacted.

Rough weekend.

Mickey Rourke Feels Sorry for Weinstein ... Not that 'Piece of S***' Cosby

10/22/2017 6:37 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mickey Rourke feels badly for Harvey Weinstein ... and it all has to do with Hollywood envy.

We got Mickey in WeHo Saturday leaving Catch, and he told our photog ... although what Weinstein did is "f***** up," he's done a lot of good, and when powerful people stumble the jealous ones pounce to kill.

Mickey then sets his sights on Bill Cosby and fires.  Turns out Mickey once dated a woman who Cosby allegedly committed some sexual misdeed.  He wasn't dating her during the Cosby incident, but if he had been he tells us what he would have done ... and it's not pretty.

Director James Toback Accused of Sexual Harassment By Over 30 Women

10/22/2017 10:35 AM PDT

Director James Toback -- famous for films like "Two Girls and a Guy" -- has been accused of sexual harassment by over 30 women ... this in the wake of Weinstein.

The Los Angeles Times posted the story Sunday, in which 38 women accuse Toback of decades-long sexual harassment ... much of it similar in nature to the accusations against Harvey Weinstein.

According to the report, Toback would bring young women into a private space on the pretense of audition talks or a promise of fame ... and then proceed to ask intimate questions. He'd then allegedly dry-hump them or masturbate in front of them.

As we've reported ... Weinstein's been accused of comparable behavior.

Toback has denied the allegations, saying he either never met any of the 30-plus women who've accused him ... or only had brief encounters with them. He also claimed to the Times he was medically incapable of such behavior, citing diabetes and a heart condition.

The director is best known for early films he did with Robert Downey Jr. such as 'Two Girls,' "The Pick-Up Artist," and "Black and White" ... as well as 2008's "Tyson," and 2014's "The Gambler." 

Cardi B Breaks Up Then Makes Up with Offset

10/22/2017 6:44 AM PDT

Cardi B  apparently had a big falling out with Offset -- she may have even broken up with him, but only for a minute.

She just took back what she posted Saturday when she was pretty clearly saying she broke up with the Migos rapper by referring to herself as "single."  

Now she says she "exaggerated a lil bit" and is now back on board.  

It's unclear what the beef was over, but just a few hours ago she posted, "don't get used."

Livin' on the extreme ... it makes you change your mind a lot.

Dr. Phil Accident Victim Lashes Out, Lawyers Up

10/22/2017 7:20 AM PDT

10:39 AM PT -- A rep for Dr. Phil tells TMZ ... the doc spoke with the man who was hit at the time of the accident and was assured he was fine. They add ... if LAPD has any more questions, Dr. Phil will gladly speak with them ... as he believes he was operating well within the law.The skateboarder Dr. Phil hit Friday is pulling out all the stops ... going after Phil and threatening a lawsuit.

TMZ broke the story ... Phil was coming out of a Universal City parking lot Friday when he impatiently attempted to pass a van, striking the 20 something skateboarder.  Cops say Phil stopped, the guy told him he was fine, they shook hands and the Doc left.

The skateboarder, Terrence Bembury, is now aggressively going after Phil.  He posted, "he never got out of the car, checked too see if I was injured, didn't even ask for my name."  Cops dispute that and say Bembury told them he told Phil he was fine, and only later said he wasn't.

Bembury also says, "cops told me he needed to stay until cops came."  Police tell us that's not true, because after the skateboarder said he was fine and there was no damage or injury, Phil was free to leave.  

Bembury posted a pic of a hospital room, saying, "Than Dr. Phil ... It felt amazing getting hit by your Mercedes ... Now I'm going on two days of missing work ... Smh.  I meet with my Lawyer Monday." 

And he goes on ... "This is a 100% winnable vase (sic) since Dr. PHIL ran a stop sign and was in the wrong lane of traffic."  He's right on one count ... cops reviewed surveillance video and say Phil was in the wrong.  Now Bembury needs to prove he was injured and out money.

Beyonce & Jay-Z Our New Pad's a Money Pit!!!

10/22/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce and Jay-Z aren't done dropping cash on their insane new L.A. estate ... the price tag is inching into the $100 million territory..

The Carters have taken out 2 permits in the past month for work on their recently purchased Bel-Air property -- one to install a backup generator and make a $30k alteration to the pad, and another to add a living area under the pools for around $750k.

Bey and Jay closed escrow on the mansion in August for $88 MILLION -- a dream come true for one new neighbor. But apparently $88 mil only gets you so much.

As we reported ... the couple also went bicoastal last month by gobbling up a baller house in the Hamptons for a cool $26 million.

Good to have choices.

Dr. Phil Hits Skateboarder with Car Ambulance Called

10/21/2017 6:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dr. Phil's car insurance might be going up soon, because he ran into a skateboarder in a crosswalk ... and all signs point to the TV host being at fault.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Dr. Phil was driving out of a parking lot near Universal Studios Friday morning when he impatiently attempted to pass a van, but when he went around it he struck a man in his early 20s in a crosswalk, riding on his skateboard.

We're told Phil got out of his Mercedes to check on the guy. Cops say the skateboarder recognized Dr. Phil and told him he was fine ... so they shook hands and Phil drove away.

A witness nearby reported the incident, and when cops showed up to check on the skateboarder ... he told them he was no longer fine -- he said his shoulder and leg were hurting.

Police called for an ambulance and paramedics checked him out and advised him to go to the hospital.

The young man declined a ride in an ambulance to a hospital ... telling them he'd get checked out on his own.

LAPD took a traffic injury report and cops reviewed surveillance footage to determine fault ... it doesn't look good for the Doc.

We reached out to Dr. Phil for comment ... so far, no word back.

'Sammy the Bull' Tatted and Hungry After Prison Stint ... Right Back to Old Habits

10/22/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Notorious Mafia hitman-turned-rat, "Sammy the Bull" Gravano, has a gnarly new look after 17 years up the river -- but he's got the same taste in Italian food.

Gravano resurfaced at Uncle Sal's restaurant in Scottsdale on October 9 -- a few weeks after his release from prison -- to pick up a takeout order. We're told he popped in with his son and stayed for about 15 minutes.

Despite his new sleeve of tattoos and shaved head, we're told patrons recognized the former mobster. Makes sense ... Sammy's fam used to own the restaurant. His wife kept running it for a few years after he was busted for running an ecstasy ring. 

If Uncle Sal's sounds familiar, it's the same spot where Harvey Weinstein had dinner the night before beginning rehab. 'The Bull' was there a couple days earlier.
