5/1/2018 1:59 PM PDT
Breaking News

Daz Dillinger's call for the Crips to beat down Kanye West got him stopped by cops Tuesday in Los Angeles ... but he says he's not backing down.

Tha Dogg Pound rapper was walking past a slew of police cruisers, and said officers wanted to ask him about "this Kanye West s**t." Daz says, luckily he didn't have anything on him, but he seems to think this is just the start of the hassling he's gonna get from law enforcement.

In the video, he wonders out loud if Kris Jenner called the cops on him.

As we reported, Daz issued a green light Monday for all Crips to "f**k up Kanye" on sight.

Kanye told us during his Tuesday appearance on "TMZ Live" ... he's not worried about the threat.

Kanye West The 'Taylor Swift Moment' Helped Trigger My Breakdown

5/1/2018 9:37 AM PDT
Breaking News

Kanye West says Taylor Swift was one of the factors that caused his nervous breakdown in 2016 -- namely, the aftermath of interrupting her at the VMAs and how it affected his radio play.

Ye released his interview with Charlamagne tha God Tuesday -- and in the first few minutes he explains what led to him being hospitalized in late November 2016. He says ever since he and Kim posted video seemingly showing Taylor knew about his infamous "Famous" lyric ahead of time ... his relationship with radio has never been the same.

He admits he wanted major radio play as one of the most popular artists in the world, and says the fact he simply wasn't getting it after he released 'Life of Pablo' screwed with his head.

Kanye also notes that the departure of L.A. Reid from Universal Music might've affected his radio dynamic ... but says it was just one of many stressors in his life at that point.

Speaking of Kanye's music beefs, he also addresses Jay-Z's $20 million "favor" to him ... saying what we already reported ... it wasn't a handout, it was money from Live Nation.

Breaking News

Tom Brady says Bill Belichick is the "best coach in the history of the NFL" -- and confirmed he will be BACK playing for the New England Patriots in 2018. 

Brady addressed the alleged rift between himself and Belichick at the Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills during a Q&A with Jim Gray.

"He's very respectful to me," Brady said ..."We've had a great relationship. A very respectful relationship for a long time and I feel like he's the best coach in the history of the NFL."

Brady admitted Belichick's "not the easiest coach to play for" ... but added, "he's the best for me."

"He's an incredible coach. He's been an incredible mentor for me. He's taught me so much football ... I wouldn't be sitting here without his coaching."

Daz Dillinger I Want the Crips to 'F*** Up' Kanye!!!

4/30/2018 10:33 AM PDT
Breaking News

Kanye West is now a marked man -- Tha Dogg Pound rapper Daz Dillinger put the call out for the Crips to beat Kanye's ass.

Daz's video putting gang members on alert for Kanye is the most severe and violent reaction yet to Ye saying he loves President Trump and calling him his "brother." Daz says Kanye is essentially saying, "I'm with you mastah Trump. Burn all these n***ers."

He goes on to make a comparison to "Django Unchained" -- before flat out saying any Crips out there need to "f*** Kanye up."

Nothing funny about the call for violence, but Daz did make a Calabasas geography screwup that's pretty laughable. 

'RHOA' Star Marlo Hampton Kenya's Lying About Me Being A Call Girl

4/29/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Marlo Hampton says Kenya Moore is spreading lies and rumors by insinuating she's a call girl and prostitute when the real sham is Kenya's own marriage.

We spoke to Marlo after this week's 'RHOA' reunion show where the two went at it. For those who missed it ... Kenya accused Marlo of being a "trick" and taking $20k from a man named John to blackmail NeNe Leakes.

Marlo says Kenya's attack totally blindsided her because she wasn't prepared to defend herself against Kenya's BS, but it sure seemed like Marlo was prepared when she spoke to us ... she even challenges Kenya to take a pregnancy test.

As for Marlo's relationship status, she says Kenya and the other cast members know she was in a serious 5-year relationship, but the real relationship that is over for Marlo is the one with Kenya.

Matt Lauer vs. Ann Curry War Reignited

4/27/2018 6:52 AM PDT

The bad blood between Matt Lauer and Ann Curry is boiling again ... after Curry accused Lauer of physically harassing an NBC female staffer.

Curry claimed she told NBC execs back in 2012 Lauer was actually physically aggressive toward women and claims the honchos did nothing. Lauer just fired back, acknowledging he had crossed the line while anchoring "Today" but adding, "I want to make it perfectly clear that any allegations or reports of coercive, aggressive or abusive actions on my part, at any time, are absolutely false."

Lauer made his comments to The Washington Post, the same day Curry told the post about her allegations.

The animosity between Curry and Lauer goes back years. As TMZ previously reported, Lauer thought Curry was a lightweight and was bringing down the show when she was his co-anchor. Curry believed Lauer was responsible for her getting fired from the gig, and even shunned him her last day on the show.

Kyle Richards Kim Zolciak, Come To 'RHOBH'! ... You're Not Racist

4/26/2018 6:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards says that if Kim Zolciak ever found herself in the 90210 she'd be welcomed with open arms by the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast now that she's left the Atlanta franchise. 

We got Kyle leaving Craig's in West Hollywood where she came to Kim's defense saying she didn't think Zolciak was being racist when she threw her now-infamous "roach nest" insult at NeNe Leakes, and then later blamed racism on social media during the reunion show.

Kyle says the reunion show was brutal for Kim and hard to watch and, although Kyle's not taking sides, it's evident she believes Kim's being genuine when she says she's open to all people, which Kim attempted to clear up in a lengthy apology on social media.  

During the last RHOA Reunion episode, I made a comment that confused and offended people. I sincerely apologize. Edited out of context, I understand why my remark angered people. Racism is a sad reality in the United States. It has been prevalent throughout our country's history. Let me be very clear, I do NOT support, tolerate or put up with any form of racism, hate or other discrimination. My love for ALL people runs deep - I am open to all and always have been. I was heartbroken when I watched the last few minutes of the episode and saw how my words were taken out of context. My comment that seemingly “racism didn’t exist 10 years ago” was made as part of a larger, emotional 45-minute conversation about how, sadly, social media has become a hub for hate. Immediately following my confusing comment, I also said that "it's not as real as it is now" referring to the power of social media. But those remarks didn’t make the show. I believe that social media has made a centuries-old issue more real. Before social media, the public simply observed the news. Now, the public actively participates and has an opportunity to take action – in real time. But this is a double edged sword. Now, when false accusations are made, they are amplified by online platforms regardless of their merit. This wasn’t the case 10 years ago when I started on RHOA. I truly pray that the people wishing horrible things on others, and on me, channel that energy into something positive. Our world would be a much better place if you do. I am committed to making this world a better place to live. I will continue to learn from, and be open to, ALL people.

Tekashi69 Manager Under Investigation For Shootings Before & During Broner Fight

4/25/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69's manager is under criminal investigation for two shootings that went down the day of Adrien Broner's fight ... and the moments leading up to the incident were caught on tape.

Law enforcement sources tell us 6ix9ine's manager, Tr3yway, is a person of interest in two separate gun-related incidents over the weekend -- one that occurred during the Broner fight, and another that went down just hours earlier on the streets of Brooklyn.

We're told police believe Tr3yway might be the person who fired a shot inside the Barclays Center after a fight broke out with Casanova's crew, based on surveillance video. They also think he might've been the guy who fired two shots 4 hours beforehand, when he was allegedly captured on video shooting at a car following Tekashi's SUV.

Cops tell us the suspect in the footage from both incidents resembles Tr3yway -- who'd been hanging out with 6ix9ine and Foodgod, Jonathan Cheban, over the weekend ... who was filming his new show.

In the footage from outside the arena, obtained by TMZ, you see what eyewitnesses tell us is Tekashi's SUV presumably heading to Barclays. It stops suddenly, and a guy we're told is Tr3yway hops out and runs in the opposite direction ... at which point he allegedly fired. 

Sources say Tekashi got out in the vid, as well, but you can't make out his face -- or hair -- 'cause he's got a hoodie on. Criminal charges have yet to be brought against Tr3yway. Still ... considering Tekashi's crew has been linked to a THIRD shooting this week ... they might wanna lay low. 

We've reached out to Tekashi's camp multiple times for comment ... so far, no word back. 

DJ Khaled and Kevin Hart Go to War Over Heat vs. 76ers!!!

4/24/2018 6:24 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Most polite war ever!!! 

Here's DJ Khaled telling TMZ Sports why the Miami Heat will come back and beat the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA playoffs. 

And here's Kevin Hart explaining why Khaled's OUT OF HIS DAMN MIND!!!

The Heat are currently down 3-1 to the 76ers -- and Philly can close it out Tuesday night in the City of Brotherly Love. 

But Khaled -- who's a diehard Heat fan -- ain't giving up hope. In fact, he says Miami has that championship pedigree you can't ever count out. 

Enter Kevin Hart (or exit Kevin Hart) who says he's getting on a plane and heading to Philly ... and shocker, he's repping hard for his squad. 

We'll see who emerges victorious Tuesday night ... 

Rich The Kid Lil Uzi Vert Is a 'Dead Friend'

4/24/2018 7:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid made it pretty clear there's no hope for reconciliation when it comes to his beef with Lil Uzi Vert and all you have to do is listen to the lyrics of his new diss song, "Dead Friends."

We got Rich the Kid out in NYC Monday and asked him about the beef. RTK dodged our question about the feud in favor of rapping the lyrics from his new track and that's telling, especially if you've seen the video.

If you haven't ... RTK puts out a hit, murders and buries what everyone believes is a Lil Uzi look-alike six feet under.

If there was any doubt the guy in the video was supposed to be Lil Uzi, RTK seems to clear that one up. 

Tekashi69's Crew Tied To Another Shooting 2 Men Hit With Bullets

4/23/2018 6:57 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Another one of Tekashi69's crew members are under police investigation for a shooting in which two men were hit -- both with ties to 69's rival, Casanova.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Casanova was filming a music video in NYC's Bedford-Stuyvesant Thursday when at least ten shots were fired at the crew. We're told two men were hit with bullets, but are expected to make full recoveries.

Tekashi and Casanova have a long-standing rivalry. On Saturday night, both crews were in attendance for the Adrien Broner fight at Barclays Center and had a scuffle in an arena hallway. Cops say one shot was fired during the scuffle, and they believe the shooter was an unidentified member of Tekashi's crew. 

Police believe the Broner incident was a continuation of Thursday's violence. They have not yet named any suspects, but the case is under active investigation. 

Tekashi69 Crew Member Allegedly Fired Gun During Adrien Broner Fight

4/22/2018 12:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Someone in Tekashi69's crew allegedly fired a gun inside the Barclays Center this weekend, but it had nothing to do with Adrien Broner ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops believe an unidentified member of Tekashi's entourage fired a shot inside Barclays Saturday night during an altercation with a rival rap crew headed by Brooklyn-based MC Casanova, who Tekashi's been beefing with online.

We're told police understand the situation as follows ... Tekashi and his guys were heading down a hallway in Barclays to hit up a VIP area in the arena, when they bumped into Casanova and co. along the way. The two crews started pushing and shoving ... and someone in Tekashi's group allegedly discharged one round from a firearm.

Sources tell us a .32 caliber shell casing was recovered afterward, but it was not processed after it was touched by arena staff. We're told no one was hit by the shot, and both crews dispersed ... with Casanova and his pals fleeing the grounds entirely. 

Tekashi and his crew stuck around, though, and they were all interviewed by investigators. Our police sources tell us no one in the group was found to have a weapon on them, however, and nobody was arrested. We're told cops think the man who fired fled the scene.

The silver lining -- if there is any -- is that this apparently had nothing to do with the ongoing beef between Tekashi and Broner, who were talking s*** to each other on social media in the week leading up to the fight. 

Adrien did take a verbal shot at Tekashi after his match against Jessie Vargas was declared a draw ... but it sounds like Tekashi was preoccupied trying to avoid a real shot just outside.

Cops are investigating the matter for further information.

Adrien Broner Won't Accept Draw Against Vargas ... Slams Tekashi69, Too

4/22/2018 10:33 AM PDT

Adrien Broner wouldn't let the judges in his boxing match against Jessie Vargas declare a draw without giving them a piece of his mind ... and not without bashing Tekashi69 either.

Adrien's fight against Vargars Saturday night was announced as a tie after 12 rounds of going at it -- which Adrien seemed disappointed with at first ... and then downright defiant.

The former world champ tried grabbing from announcer Jim Gray to give his two cents on the decision -- Gray wasn't having any of that, though. Adrien did speak his peace, though ... telling Vargas that he clearly beat his ass ... and that his 6ix9ine-looking face proved it.

As we've reported ... Broner and Tekashi have been trading barbs in the week leading up to his fight against Vargas. Broner even threw down a $300k check to counter Tekashi's hypothetical bet that he'd lose this weekend. 

Considering how things turned out  in the end ... we're guessing he's glad he didn't actually go all in on himself.
