Michael Strahan Blindsided by Ripa Taking Divorce Cheap Shot

4/29/2016 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

The gloves are off ... and Michael Strahan got that message loud and clear when Kelly Ripa dropped an unscripted jab at him over divorce, TMZ has learned. 

Sources connected to production tell us Ripa's intro to a segment about divorced couples was a total shock to Strahan. If you missed it -- Kelly innocently turned to her co-host and said, "So, you've gotten divorced ..."

We're told the look of shock on his face was 100% authentic.

Of course, both Kelly and Michael knew they were doing the segment, but we're told he had NO IDEA she was going to raise his divorce as part of it. If it looks like a cheap shot, that's exactly how Michael and others on set took it ... according to our sources.

Strahan played it off on the air this time, but these last 2 weeks -- before he jumps to 'GMA' full-time -- are gonna get interesting.

Jenna Jameson Accused of Riding Ex BF's New Chick

4/29/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-amber-miller-jenna-jameson-instagram-tmz-4Porn legend Jenna Jameson is a serious 'Mean Girl' ... according to Tito Ortiz's current gf, who says Jenna's cyberbullying her so hard she needs a restraining order.

Ex-UFC octagon girl Amber Miller says Jenna stirred up her social media minions to attack her during a "self-proclaimed roast" of Amber. In docs, Amber says Jenna told her thousands of followers to "go after" Amber and they responded.

Amber says she's been flooded with death wishes and taunts from team Jenna, and claims Jenna threatened to throw acid on her face -- which is why she filed a request for a restraining order.

Amber says the harassment's been going on ever since she started dating ex-UFC star Tito ... who, of course, has 2 kids with Jenna.

Jenna now has to stay 100 yards away from Amber -- and stop all forms of harassment.

Lil Wayne No 'Respek' ... Chillin' with Birdman Foes!

4/28/2016 9:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

428-lil-wayne-instagramLil Wayne put ZERO 'Respek' on Birdman's name by hanging out with Rick Ross and Trick Daddy -- 2 of the guys who prompted Birdman's infamous rant.

Weezy and co. posed together in Miami right before Beyonce took the stage to kick off her tour. We don't know if the middle finger was intended for Cash Money's honcho, but he's gotta be taking it that way after his 'Breakfast Club' blowup over a lack of respek.

Remember, Charlamagne Tha God reminded Birdman that Ricky Rozay and Trick Daddy were also dissing him ... before he stormed out of the studio.

Wayne and Birdman seemed to be patching things up personally -- although they're still at war, legally -- but this pic won't help.  

UFC's Paige VanZant Tyson Fury Deserves an Ass Whoopin' ... Over Sexist Rant

4/28/2016 7:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Paige VanZant has a major problem with heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury -- telling TMZ Sports his sexist comments about women are completely disrespectful ... and he needs to get his ass kicked. 

Fury's been catching hell ever since a December interview in which he said, "A woman’s best place is in the kitchen and on her back."

Wladimir Klitschko blasted the former heavyweight champ -- saying he was a disgrace to the sport of boxing. 

Now, VanZant is following suit ... with the UFC fighter saying all she can do is continue to break female stereotypes to silence morons like Fury. Paige also says she's down to beat some sense into him as well.

Check out the clip.

Dana White The Hatred Is Real Jones, Cormier Beef Is No P.R. Stunt

4/27/2016 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

There's nothing fake about the hostility between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier -- so says UFC honcho Dana White ... who says the hatred these guys have for each other was definitely NOT concocted for publicity. 

Dana -- skyping in from his PRIVATE JET -- joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 ... and was asked straight up if the feud between the fighters was cooked up by the UFC to help sell tickets. 

But Dana shut that down fast -- explaining, "They obviously respect each other as fighters but as human beings they completely dislike each other."

You gotta watch the entire interview Wednesday on FS1 -- we also asked if he felt Cormier crossed the line when he called Jones a "drug addict."

Oh, and he also told us about the sick in-flight meal on his private jet.

Daniel Cormier Jon Jones Is a Drug Addict

4/27/2016 11:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Daniel Cormier took things personal with Jon Jones Wednesday morning -- calling him a drug addict to his face ... and threatening to "beat that ass" at UFC 200. 

Cormier was responding to Jones -- who had asked Daniel what he'll say to his kids if they ever ask, "Daddy, did you ever beat Jon 'Bones' Jones?"

Cormier essentially said he didn't HAVE to beat Jones to get his championship belt because Jones eliminated himself by testing positive for cocaine. 

FYI -- Jones has said he's NOT an addict ... but admits he made a "really dumb decision" before the drug test for UFC 182 last year.  

The back-and-forth between these guys is nasty ... and multiple people in the UFC tell us the hatred is 100% legit.

So, how did Jones feel about the whole thing? He asked the crowd ... "You guys ready to see D.C. get his ass whooped again?"

Wladimir Klitschko Tyson Fury Is Raging Sexist Homophobe ... 'F*** YOU'

4/27/2016 8:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Wladimir Klitschko just told boxing superstar Tyson Fury to go F HIMSELF -- trashing Fury over recent homophobic and sexist comments ... and saying he disrespected Elton John.

Klitschko was doing a media event in England to promote his rematch with Fury -- he blasted the boxer ... saying the sport needs a champion it can respect, not a bigot like Fury.

"What comes out of Fury's mouth ... disrespectful," Klitschko said ... before summing up the comments Fury spewed out of his mouth in 2015. 

"That all homosexual men and women and pedophiles belong in the same place, jail ... that women belong in the kitchen and on their back."

"So, that's basically where [Fury] sees Elton John and The Queen."

Then Klitschko delivered this message -- "To people that say and think the same way out there ... and to you, Fury ... I want to say, 'F*** OFF!'"

For his part, Fury insists he's not a homophobe or sexist. But Klitschko just ain't buyin' it. 

Michael Strahan Leaving 'Live' for Good in Two Weeks

42616-michael-strahan-kelly-ripa-03

Michael Strahan's getting the hell outta dodge months earlier than anticipated -- instead of staying at 'Live' through the summer, he'll be gone in just over 2 weeks. 

Sources connected to the show tell us Michael's last day will be Friday, May 13. We're told an internal memo went around to the show staff Tuesday morning ... just as Kelly Ripa finally returned to the show.

The memo reads: "After meeting with the producers of both 'Live' and "Good Morning America," and after speaking with Kelly and Michael, we have decided on a plan that best advantages both shows for the future."

"To that end, Michael's last day on 'Live' will be Friday, May 13, which not only gives the show the chance to have an appropriate send off for him during the May sweeps, but to also immediately give Kelly and the producers an opportunity to begin the on-air search for a new co-host."

When Strahan's move to 'GMA' was announced, Disney said he'd be at 'Live' through August -- but that was before Ripa staged her protest

The memo also said, "This plan also allows 'GMA' to start integrating Michael into the show more often this summer before his full-time start in September."

Dana White Nate Diaz Ain't Mad Working On UFC 200 Replacement

4/26/2016 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dana White tells TMZ Sports he's still working to get Nate Diaz to fight at UFC 200 in July -- and says Diaz can essentially fight anyone he wants ... with one giant Irish exception. 

"Obviously, I would like to keep Nate [in 200]," White told us outside of Mastro's in Bev Hills Monday night ... "Nate stands to make a lot of money in 200, I'd like to keep him in 200, but that's up to him."

Dana says Nate's not even mad that the whole Conor McGregor super fight fell apart -- insisting Diaz is "actually pretty cool about it."

"This is a fight that Conor was really obsessed with and Conor wanted this fight and Nate was like ... whatever." 

So, what's the plan? Dana says the ball is in Diaz's court. 

BONUS -- we also asked Dana which 3 UFC fighters he'd like on his side in a bar fight. His #1 choice is very interesting. 

Michael Strahan He Was Sick of the Sniping He Wanted to Bail on 'Live'

4/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42516-michael-strahan-kelly-ripa-06Jumping ship from 'Live' was an easy call for Michael Strahan ... he wanted to work where his co-host wasn't tormenting him.

Sources connected with the production tell us, Michael had his fill of Kelly Ripa long before the 'GMA' opportunity surfaced. Sources say Kelly couldn't stand the fact that he stole some of her shine. Strahan became an instant star and got lots of attention, and we're told she hated it.

One source says it got to a point where she was "bullying" him, although on camera you couldn't tell. But another source says the notion Kelly was bullying Michael is "a joke."  

The 'GMA' job gives Strahan more money, a group of co-hosts he likes and who like him, and the right to continue his sports stuff. He also wants to grow beyond interviewing celebrities.

As we reported, after Strahan broke the news to Kelly he texted her Tuesday, trying to create an atmosphere where they could co-exist for the duration of his time on 'Live.' We're told she did not respond until Saturday, and it was "short and superficial."

From Kelly's perspective, we know he was at war with Executive Producer Michael Gelman for the first year and made things very uncomfortable for everyone. These sources also say a lot of the conflict surfaced because Michael was not "present enough" on 'Live' because of his part-time 'GMA' duties.

Beyonce Anti-Bey Anchor Blocks Bey's World Tour Video

EXCLUSIVE

Tomi Lahren, the web anchor who went viral for bashing Beyonce's Super Bowl performance, won't bow down to Queen Bey ... she's refusing to license her clip for Bey's Formation world tour.

Beyonce's camp sent a letter to Tomi and TheBlaze, the network that produces Tomi's show, asking for the rights to use the first 30 seconds of her rant.

The letter was sent late last month, stating they'd probably only use Tomi's audio but video was a possibility as well. Tomi's answer was short and sweet -- no.

Tomi received death threats over her blistering comments about Bey's black power halftime show. For those who missed it ... she's argued Bey ripped off the historical band-aid on America's civil rights movement by promoting the Black Panthers, which Tomi called a terrorist group.

Someone needs to give Tomi a lesson about PR ... it's almost always good.

Kelly Ripa Back Tuesday After Tough Talk With Disney

EXCLUSIVE

0422_kelly_ripa_abc

Kelly Ripa will be back Tuesday on 'Live' ... TMZ has learned ... this after her people jawboned it with Disney over the fate of her show and the tenure of her co-host.

Our ABC sources say Kelly's people made it clear she would come back if they could get assurance the show wasn't getting the ax. As we reported, ABC honchos are noodling whether to add a third hour of 'GMA,' which would displace 'Live.'

From what we can gather, the brass gave Kelly enough assurance to end her boycott. Based on what we know, even Disney doesn't know if they'll expand 'GMA.' A lot depends on morning show ratings and the performance of 'Live' over the next year.

Even if 'GMA' moves to 9 ... ABC could save 'Live' by moving it to 10 or 11 AM.

Our ABC sources say Kelly made it clear she'd be a happy camper if Michael Strahan leaves before his scheduled September departure. Our sources say both Kelly and Michael are extremely uncomfortable about sitting together under the circumstances, and they'd both like to stop the bleeding STAT.

As we reported, the 2 have not gotten along for 2 years ... various sources say they don't like each other.

We're told Kelly has a little more than a year left on her contract. Makes for good TV.
