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

Death Photo Sold

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.

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

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.

Invitation Infuriates Brown Family Member

Bobbi Kristina will be laid to rest Saturday and her funeral already has the Browns and the Houstons fighting ... over money. 

TMZ's obtained the invite ... the guest list is tight and even if you're on the list you have to present a government-issued ID at the door.   

Now the conflict -- the invitation suggests, in lieu of flowers, donations should be sent to The Marion P. Foundation, a charity run by Bobbi Kristina's aunt Pat Houston, benefiting troubled teens. 

Leolah Brown, BK's other aunt, claims Pat's just lining her personal bank account and she's asking people not to send “ONE RED CENT!” to the charity. Leolah says Pat's "not the sweet quiet person that she's tried so hard to make people believe she was... ." And what's more -- she alleges the late Whitney Houston would agree.

Meek Mill

I Wasn't Lyin'

Drake Really Did Get Peed On!

7/31/2015 8:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0731-animation-drake-pee-getty-01

update_graphic_red_bar1:30 PM PST -- Sources close to both T.I. and Drake say the culprit was a heavily intoxicated friend of T.I.'s who peed himself. The pee unintentionally got on Drake's shoe and that's when he got pissed.

update_grey_gray_barMeek Mill's random line at the end of his Drake diss song -- that Drake once got PEED ON -- is true.

The lyric in question came at the very end of "Wanna Know," where Meek said, "You let Tip homie piss on you in a movie theater n****, we ain’t forget."

Our sources say, it all went down in 2010, during a private screening of "Takers" on the Sony lot ... a movie in which Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Chris Brown and T.I. all starred in.

Drake attended the screening and, 30 minutes in, jumped up screaming and ran out of the theater.

We're told a dispute erupted over who was sitting where ... apparently Drake and one of T.I.'s childhood friends got into it. The friend got pissed, and pissed on Drake.

We're told Drake ran out of the theater, screaming "motherf*****."

And sources told us the obvious ... intoxicants were involved.

Meek Mill

Drake Diss Song TRASHED

More than a Little Meek

7/31/2015 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Meek Mill is getting annihilated on social media for what most people think is a tepid, lame and wack response to Drake.

Drake's diss track was epic, basically calling Meek Nicki Minaj's bitch. Meek was universally trashed for his impotent response.

0731-meek-mill-drake-diss-soundcloud-dreamchasers-01Meek had a few good lines in "Wanna Know" ... like, "N****s writing for you cause you know you never did s***" ... but even the biggest Meek fan would have to admit, Drake is winning this war.

Things are so bad for Meek, he's been trolled by a fast food chain. Whataburger, popular in the southern part of the country, tweeted, "Meek Mill take it from us- if you gonna serve beef serve it high quality."

0731-subasset-whataburger-twitterEven Toronto Councillor Norm Kelly got in on the action, writing, "This is the reason people hire ghostwriters. #WeDidntWannaKnow."

Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings piled on as well ... saying he'd pay money if Meek would stop.

Drake posted a response to the song as well ... just a photo of him laughing hysterically. 

Checkmate.

NBA Star to Meek Mill

I'll Write You a Check

... But Please, Stop.

breaking news

0730-brandon-jennings-instagramDetroit Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings thinks Meek Mill's comeback diss track to Drake was so bad ... he wants to pay the guy $150 to just stop. 

Mill finally dropped, "Wanna Know" last night ... which was universally panned by everyone from rappers to politicians ... even a burger joint took a shot at Meek.  

And Jennings was critical as well ... check out the screen grab our friends at BSO captured moments after Mill dropped the track -- it's pretty harsh.  

By the way, there's backstory -- last week, Meek dissed Jennings for taking Drake's side in the rap feud. 

Wonder how he's gonna feel about this.   

Nick Gordon

Begs Bobby Brown

Let Me Mourn at Bobbi Kristina's Funeral

EXCLUSIVE

0730_nick_bobbi_kristina_bobbi_brown_tmz_getty
Nick Gordon
desperately wants to attend Bobbi Kristina's funeral Saturday ... so he sent Bobby Brown an email begging him for his blessing.

According to the email, which we've seen, Nick says, "I loved Krissi with all my heart and I am destroyed that she is gone and I need to say goodbye."

Nick realizes he's on the outs with the family as cops continue their homicide investigation with him in their crosshairs.   

Nick, who included Pat Houston in his email because she's arranging the funeral, goes on, "I'm begging you both to please put your differences aside and allow me this chance."

And there's a dash of guilt laced in the email ... "Krissi loved me very much and she would want me there."

Nick was persona non grata the entire time Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized, with most members of both families blaming Gordon for BK's death

The irony shouldn't be lost on Bobby Brown ... he was blamed by Whitney Houston's family for her death and even left her funeral early after a disagreement over seating.

Joe Carter

I'm Honored to Be In Drake Beef

... My Kid Thinks I'm Cool!

7/29/2015 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0729-carter-drake-getty-tmz-01MLB legend Joe Carter says he's "honored" to have been injected into the Drake vs. Meek Mill feud -- saying it's AWESOME that Drake used his image to go after Meek because "My kids feel I'm legit now."

Backstory -- Drake used an ICONIC image of Carter's Game 6 walk off homerun that lifted the Toronto Blue Jays over the Philadelphia Phillies back in 1993 as the cover art to his new diss track against Meek. 

0729-sub-swipe-drake-soundcloud-01FYI, Drake is from Toronto, Meek is from Philly -- so, you can see why Drake decided to use the pic to reinforce his anti-Meek message.  

As for Joe -- he LOVES IT -- telling TMZ Sports, "My Twitter's been blowing up! It put my name back in the mix!"

He adds, "I had no idea [Drake was going to use that photo] ... I'm honored that he used it."

Carter tells us he knows Drake and has seen him around Toronto several times over the years -- and says Drake is a great ambassador for the city, which Joe considers his 2nd home.

But the best part for Joe -- "My 25-year-old son thinks I'm cool now."
