EXCLUSIVE

011315_kenny_smith_launchPayback's a bitch ... so says Kenny "The Jet" Smith who says he's constantly looking over his shoulder -- waiting for Shaq to try to get his revenge for that infamous Christmas tree shoving. 

You remember the incident ... Smith tossed Shaq into a tree on the set of "Inside the NBA" ... leaving the Big Fella flat on his ass covered in broken branches. 

"I thought it would be funny ... but I didn't know it was gonna be THAT funny," Smith said. 

As for Shaq's revenge, Kenny says he knows it's coming -- it's just a matter of time. 

Nick Cannon

I Made Mariah Hit the High Notes

1/12/2015 8:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

011215_nick_cannon_launch
Now we know what Nick Cannon was saying about in his new song referencing Mariah Carey ... He's actually talking about a text ... and not what it sounded like.

It sounded like he said "I got a check," referring to his soon-to-be ex-wife.  But someone involved in the production tells us he says "text" and not "check."

Nick does brag he gets an A in the bedroom ... rapping he makes Mariah hit the high notes.

Nick, producer Mally Mall and rapper's French Montana and Too Short were at a Hollywood strip club Sunday shooting the video for the song, and we got Nick's verse on cam. So it's a little hard to make out, but here's what we think he says:

I'm a freak
It goes like this
Yo the freaks come out at night
I'm like Houdini with the magic stick when you turn out the lights
With this Girl names Keisha, Aphrodite
Ass so phat half black and white
Hit high notes n**** ask my wife
Whoops I mean ex, I got a text
Let's sex
I need a freak
Everyday on me
We all clean, we all clean  

He's movin' on.

Boxer Adrien Broner

Apologizes to Jay Z & Rihanna

'I Can Admit When I'm Wrong'

EXCLUSIVE

011115_adrian_broner_launch
Boxing superstar Adrien Broner says he deeply regrets dissing Jay Z and Rihanna -- and has just issued an apology asking for their forgiveness.

As we previously reported, Broner BLASTED Jay earlier this week -- claiming he was incredibly insulted by the 5-year, $40 million offer he recently received from Roc Nation Sports.

In fact, he appeared on "TMZ Hollywood Sports" and reaffirmed his directive that Jay could "s***" his "d" ... and also said that Rihanna was only good for "p****." 

010915_adrian_broner_launch_v2But now, Broner says he spoke with someone he refers to as "The Big Homie" -- who explained why he was wrong to go after Jay and RiRi ... and now he wants to make things right.

"I'm a man at the end of the day," Broner says ... "I'm wrong and i can admit when I'm wrong."

As for his explanation, Broner says ... "You never invite another man to another man's private part. That's just ridiculous."

Broner says if Jay wants to talk, he's open to having a conversation.

We're guessing Broner probably shouldn't wait by the phone ...

Snoop Dogg

Called Out for Instagram Pic

Guy Says He's Being Gay Bashed

EXCLUSIVE

Snoop Dogg Instagram Lawsuit
Snoop Dogg 
has put a big fat target on a guy who's now being gay bashed, and the guy is now preparing a lawsuit against Mr. D.

Cortez Booze tells TMZ ... 5 days ago the rapper posted a pic of him on Instagram with the caption, “Whose auntcle is this?” The pic triggered a torrent of hate ... people calling him f*****, shemale, confused, ugly, punk and a host of other slurs. 

0106_snoop-dogg_auntcle_instagram_2
Cortez went to the folks at Instagram and reported the pic as inappropriate, but it's still up.

So now he's pulling out the gunz ... the legal variety. Cortez has hired a lawyer and plans to duke it out with the Dogg in court.

Snoop should definitely follow Shaquille O'Neal ... who was sued for something similar in July. Shaq posted a pic of a guy who has a rare genetic disorder which unleashed the hounds on social media. That suit is pending.

No word back from Snoop's people.

Charlie Sheen isn't done with Kim Kardashian, telling TMZ, "Zero gratitude, zero awareness, zero talent, a pox on the face of entertainment she is!" 

Charlie tells us he actually didn't mean to send the vicious tweet this morning, saying he wrote it a month ago and it accidentally posted Tuesday morning. Nevertheless, he says he stands by it.  

Charlie ranted that Kim turned a cold shoulder to a 6-year-old girl who wanted her autograph. Charlie wrote, "Go f yourself," saying Kim's ass was "gross" and "giggly."

Although he deleted the post, he says he stands by his comments. Charlie tells us it's a true story which he heard from C. Thomas Howell. Charlie says Howell told him the girl waited for Kim at a lunch place and politely asked her for her John Hancock when they were alone in the parking lot. He says Kim told her assistant, "Oh God, can you handle this."   

Charlie says, "The assistant and dooshy got in her car and pulled out and sped past the poor little 6-year-old without even a glance to the child."

A close friend of Kim's tells TMZ the reality star told her there's no truth to the story and that Kim said "I never say no to autographs, especially kids."

Charlie Sheen went on a wild rant against Kim Kardashian in the wee hours Tuesday morning, telling her to go "f yourself" for allegedly crushing a little girl's dream. 

Charlie says a friend told him about a 6-year-old girl who worshiped Kim and asked her for her autograph. Charlie says Kim turned the kid down flat, adding, "She cries about it every night before she goes to sleep."  

And that's when he goes off: "you are lucky that ANYONE cares about your gross and giggly [sic] bag of funk you dare call an ass."

He dares her to compare resumes with him, and then says, "your public loves u. give something back or go f yourself."

His parting shot, "My apologies to your hubby, great guy I'm sure, I hope his vision returns one day."

He signs it "c."  Not even a "sincerely."

Sheen deleted the post a short while later.

11:30 AM PT -- Charlie has now apologized.

'The Voice' Contestant

Reportedly Records 'Love Letter' to Kim Jong-un

But She Calls BS

1/3/2015 7:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0105-judith-hill-the-interview-tmz-01
Judith Hill -- who's signed to Sony's music label and was a contestant on "The Voice" -- reportedly recorded a new track giving praise to Kim Jong-un while roasting James Franco ... but her people say the story is bogus.

According to Page Six ... Hill originally wrote an ode to James Franco and reportedly submitted it to "The Interview" producers for the soundtrack. But when it didn't make the cut -- and the hacking scandal went down -- she changed the lyrics and the title to "A Love Letter to Kim Jong-un."

Hill was reportedly attempting to mediate peace between North Korea and the U.S. by making K.J.U. the object of her affection in the song. Some choice lyrics:

- "You got me transcending heaven, so don't be confused ... James Franco ain't got nothing on you."

- "I could wait here 127 hours ... it's true ... there's only Oscar and baby it goes to you." 

Hill was reportedly signed to Sony last year ... and is best known for performing with Michael Jackson in the movie "This Is It." She placed in the top 8 on "The Voice."

A rep for Hill tells us they did NOT submit the track to "The Interview" producers ... it was requested of them by a Sony A&R rep. She also says the song is not putting James Franco down.

The rep also claims she was not attempting to mediate peace ... and never changed the lyrics or title. The rep says it was simply a parody version of her song.

Birdman

Time to Clean Out Your Cage ...

Condo Calls Him a Deadbeat

EXCLUSIVE

1231-birdman-the-ivy-01

Birdman's nest is getting shaken one more time -- but not by Lil Wayne -- his Miami condo association wants him out -- and now they're going to court to make it happen.

Ivy Condo Association says between him bouncing checks and racking up over $12.5K in unpaid fees they've had enough -- they filed a lien in November, and asked the court to foreclose on the rap mogul right before Christmas. Yo, bah humbug! 

Financial woes are stacking up for the Cash Money honcho -- a reported $1.9 million federal tax lien, a $1 mil lien from a construction company ... plus, he took out a $5M loan against his mega-mansion in April, just to pimp it out.  

Suddenly, his Weezy war doesn't seem so big. Then again ... maybe he needs Wayne more than ever.

EXCLUSIVE

Christina Aguilera Disneyland Fight
Christina Aguilera is not in the Christmas spirit ... she spent her birthday in "The Happiest Place On Earth" ... in a heated argument with Mickey Mouse ... TMZ has learned.

Our theme park source tells us while ringing in her 34th b-day at Disney California Adventure, Christina and her crew tried to get a pic with Mickey, but he was going on a break ... so Christina was told she had to wait. Cue meltdown!

Aguilera lost it, and called Mickey an "a**hole." We're told she even dropped the dreaded, "Do you know who I am?"

Xtina's crew started hurling threats, we're told ... and Mickey had to be ushered to a safe zone -- out of public view. Security was called, but by the time they arrived ... the former Mouseketeer had already split. 

Aguilera's rep had no comment.

EXCLUSIVE

122914_suge_knight_launchSuge Knight has a belated Christmas gift for anyone who he thinks wronged him in 2014 ... and it sounds a lot worse than a lump of coal.

We fired off a simple question to Suge, Sunday night at Mastro's -- "Got any New Year's resolutions?" -- but his reply sounded like he was checking off a revenge list. 

The former head of Death Row Records also said he supports Lil Wayne in his battle with Cash Money ... then seemed to make an unprompted, and puzzling, threat toward Drake
 
Suge's 2015 sounds a lot like his 2014 ... and '13 ... and '12 ... and ...

Wanna see DeAndre Jordan call out Glen "Big Baby" Davis for making him spend $1.99 to buy a copy of his 2012 rap single?

Good ... 'cause this is pretty hilarious. 

Jordan was leaving Warwick nightclub in L.A. this weekend -- when he actually called "BS" on his  L.A. Clippers teammate for making him spend nearly TWO DOLLARS to own a copy of "Big Baby Turn It Up."

"It's a recession out here and I have to pay $1.99 for a song??" 

Ya gotta check out the clip ... DeAndre also gives props to another Clippers teammate, Spencer Hawes, over his amazingly ugly Xmas day suit. 

As for Big Baby, he has yet to drop another single ... but recently told TMZ Sports he's got a follow-up song on the way soon. So ... stay tuned???
