Donald Trump

Booted from Republican Event

Over Megyn Kelly Comment

8/8/2015 7:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0808-trump-kelly-tmz-getty-01Donald Trump is now persona non grata at a big Republican event tonight, for his comments about Megyn Kelly.

Erick Erickson, who organized the RedState Gathering, says, "I just don't want someone on stage who gets a hostile question from a lady and his first inclination is to imply it was hormonal."

The day after the big debate Trump gave his take on Megyn Kelly's questioning ... "There was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her whatever."

Trump's campaign is unapologetic, firing back, "This is just another example of weakness through being politically correct.  For all of the people who were looking forward to Mr. Trump coming, we will miss you.  Blame Erick Erickson, your weak and pathetic leader.

Aldon Smith

On-Field Fight with Kaepernick

8/7/2015 12:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0807-colin-kaepernick-aldon-smith-getty-01Aldon Smith got into a scrap with 49ers star Colin Kaepernick earlier this week ... which may have been fueled by ongoing rumors about Smith's ex-girlfriend and the QB.

Multiple Niner locker room sources tell TMZ Sports ... Aldon and Colin had an altercation on the field during a practice on Tuesday, and "players had to pull them apart." It's interesting because there's been a lot of Internet buzz Smith's ex-gf is now with Kaep.

Smith and Hot 97 host Nessa broke up in recent months, and even though she and Kaep have not been photographed together ... rumors they're together have persisted. Our sources say it wasn't clear if Smith and Kaep exchanged any words before the fight broke out ... or if Nessa's name ever came up.

It's a moot issue for the team ... now that the Niners have cut Smith on the heels of  his arrest early Friday morning for DUI, hit and run, and vandalism

Draya Michele

I Killed Orlando's Yeezys ...

But We Still Reunited

8/6/2015 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's a full blown miracle Draya Michele and Orlando Scandrick are back together after their nasty public break-up ... because Draya admits she got "crazy" and destroyed something he loves.

Draya went on the "Big Boy's Neighborhood" radio show to talk about what the hell is going on between her and Orlando now -- and copped to this recent bit of insanity:

"He’s a shoe guy, I put the shoes in the pool. I put the Yeezys in the pool. I’m not gonna sugar coat it, I’m a little crazy. I’m gonna talk about your mama, it’s an argument!"

Damn. Just. Damn.

Check out the clip ... 'cause she also explained how the Cowboys star managed to get over that mess. Props to BSO for calling out the latest drama in the Orlando-Draya soap opera.

Brandon Jennings

I Feel Sorry for Meek ...

His Career is 'Finito'

8/5/2015 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Brandon Jennings is throwing the last shovel of dirt on Meek Mill's rap grave, and insists Meek's got no one to blame but himself. 

The Pistons star was leaving 1 OAK on the Sunset Strip and didn't hesitate when we brought up the Drake-Meek mess, saying ... "His career just got started, now it's done."

Of course, Brandon -- who just came back from OVO Fest -- got in the middle of the feud last week when he posted a pic of himself writing Meek a check for $150 to stop rapping.

Check it out ... BJ goes in even harder, but says there's still a slim chance MM can bounce back. 

Real slim.

Giuliana Rancic

Trash Kelly Osbourne?

Why, I Never!

8/5/2015 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Giuliana Rancic had a chance to "Kelly Osbourne" Kelly Osbourne, but didn't go there. 

It's kinda funny ... Giuliana showed up Tuesday night to Craig's in West Hollywood ... where she had to know the throng of paparazzi would ask about her former co-star's gaffe on "The View" earlier in the day.

Giuliana didn't take the bait ... though you have to imagine she wanted to considering Kelly trashed her earlier this year during the whole Zendaya debacle

Blake Griffin

I Still Roll with Meek Mill!!

... I Think

8/5/2015 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Blake Griffin just might be the last superstar standing in Meek Mill's corner -- that's how it sounded when we got this video of Blake ... at least when the convo started. 

TMZ Sports caught up with BG in Brentwood, and we had to bring up the Drake-Meek beef since Blake and MM have some history. Meek name-dropped Blake in his 2012 hit "Burn" ... and shortly after that Blake called the Philly spitter one of his favorite rappers.

So, now that all the cool kids (Kanye West, Odell Beckham Jr., Kevin Durant, Will Smith, etc, etc ...) are backing Drake -- where's Blake's loyalty? 

Watch the clip. Blake's still all about Meek, we think. Maybe he's just being less vocal about it.

Then again ... Drake does throw some killer parties at his crib.

DeMarcus Cousins

NBA Peace Summit

Coach Was A Snake, But Now We're Cool

8/4/2015 4:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0804-demarcus-cousin-INSTAGRAM-01DeMarcus Cousins and Kings coach George Karl HATE each other on a Drake-Meek Mill level ... well, at least they did until today ... when both men posed looking like longtime homies.

The beef ran deep. Earlier in the summer ... after word leaked Karl wanted to trade his star center ... Boogie (very creatively), using 3 emojis, called his coach a snake in the grass on Twitter.

So, game over. Relationship over, right? Nope. Shout out to our friends at BSO for finding this gem -- the 2 thought-to-be mortal enemies ... smiling with arms wrapped around each other for an Instagram pic.

That sound you hear is a DEEP sigh of relief from Kings fans and front office staffers.

Kanye & Will Smith

Drake Is Sooo Funny!!

8/4/2015 7:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Drake didn't only kill Meek Mill onstage at OVO Fest  ... he burned him backstage too -- sharing a HUGE laugh with Kanye West and Will Smith.

Rumor is ... the superstars went all LMFAO over a meme Drake used to mock his rival. Check out the video ... it's hard to make out what's on Will's iPhone screen, but THEY think it's hysterical.

What is 100% clear -- Will looks really tight with Toronto's favorite son! Damn, Meek.

So much for, "In West Philadelphia born and raised ..."

Drake's Championship Ring

Chill, Meek ...

This One's NOT for You!

8/4/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0803_drake_meek_mill_tmzFinally some good news for Meek Mill ... Drake isn't trolling him with that new NFL-style championship ring he's rocking ... or at least that wasn't the original plan.

The men behind Drake's new swag are Dave Bling and his partner, Will DaBoss, ​with DWS Jewelry & Co., who have designed a number of custom pieces for Drake. Dave tells TMZ Sports the ring is packed with 5.5 karats of diamonds. It's also emblazoned with Drake's OVO Sound logo -- and definitely seems like the perfect way to celebrate his near flawless dismantling of his rival rapper.

0804-ovo-sound-ring-tmz-sportsBut Dave says it just isn't so ... because Drizzy ordered the ring LONG before the Meek beef started cooking. Dave adds, Drake just wanted "something different" and "sports-like" to toast his label's success.

He insists it's pure coincidence the ring was finished "right in the heat of this battle with Meek Mill."

The duo has also made jewelry for Meek, and Dave thinks the rapper will recover from this PR nightmare ... "But he messed with the 6-God and got handled."

Drake

Mocking Meek Is ...

All the Fashion

8/3/2015 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0803_drake_meek_shirt_instagramDrake was sporting a FREE MEEK MILL t-shirt in Toronto, reportedly just hours before getting on stage for his OVO Fest -- and the Internet is losing its collective mind. 

Photos and vids of Drizzy taking the fashion shot during what looks like a rehearsal .... have everyone wondering if he'll take the next step -- wear it on stage when he headlines tonight.

Drake wore the same shirt last summer to show love to Meek, who was locked up at the time.

You could argue ... Meek's worse off today

Bobbi Kristina

Death Photo Sold

8/3/2015 10:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803-bobbi-kristina-instagramA photo of Bobbi Kristina's body, lying in her casket, has been sold to a media outlet ... and TMZ has learned the bidding soared into the six figures. 

According to our sources, someone snapped a pic of BK during the viewing, which took place the day before the funeral. We're told the winning offer topped the $100,000 mark. 

Our sources say members of the Brown and Houston families are blaming each other for the pic, which was snapped despite all the precautionary measures.

As TMZ first reported, the Browns were worried the Houstons might pull this stunt, since it happened at Whitney Houston's funeral in 2012.

Bobbi Kristina Funeral

Brown Cousin Says,

Leolah Brown is Crazy

8/2/2015 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's not only friction between the Brown and Houston families in the wake of Bobbi Kristina's death ... now there's intra-family fighting, with Bobbi's cousin calling Bobbi's aunt "crazy."

Meeta Brown, Bobbi's cousin who attended the funeral, made a beeline for cameras after the service and ragged on Leolah Brown, who was removed after screaming that Pat Houston would be haunted by the ghost of Whitney.

Meeta, who refers to herself as Bobbi Kristina's sister but is actually her cousin, insists the 2 families are getting along fine ... which is not what we're hearing at all.

Meeta, who was on the reality show, "The Houstons: On Our Own," was frequently at Bobbi Kristina's bedside during the last 6 months.

Leolah Brown

Booted from Bobbi Kristina's Funeral

8/1/2015 9:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bobbi Kristina's funeral was interrupted Saturday morning by an outburst from Leolah Brown, Bobbi's aunt, who was swiftly removed from the church with the help of Tyler Perry.

An eyewitness tells TMZ, Pat Houston was getting ready to speak when Leolah began screaming, "Pat you know you are wrong for this!"

We're told security descended on Leolah and escorted her out. Tyler Perry followed to help diffuse the situation.

Leolah spoke with photogs outside of the service and made one thing clear ... she says Pat Houston will be haunted by the ghost of Whitney.

We're told Nick Gordon was not at the service. 

As we reported, the Browns and Houstons are feuding again. Several members of Brown's family are upset that Pat Houston has solicited funds instead of flowers for her charity.
