Darren Criss I'm Playing Versace's Killer as a Person ... Not a Murderer

1/17/2018 10:08 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Darren Criss gave us a peek into the serial killer he's playing in tonight's premiere of 'Gianni Versace: American Crime Story' ... and it sounds like he gave his murderous character some humanity.

Darren was leaving the AOL building in New York City Tuesday, when our photog asked about his portrayal of Andrew Cunanan, who murdered 5 people including Versace before committing suicide.

The actor gave us a hint as to how he's playing him, which probably will not sit well with the members of the Versace family, who have vowed to boycott the series. The family has called the show a "work of fiction."

Fact is ... there's a huge buzz over Ryan Murphy's latest series, which premieres Wednesday on FX.

Danielle Bregoli Disses 'Old Hoe' Iggy Azalea ... In 'Hi Bich' Remix

1/16/2018 1:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Bregoli is saying "Hi Bich" to Iggy Azalea -- calling her an "old hoe" that's "washed."

The "Cash Me Outside" girl slams Iggy in a remix of her hit song, now featuring YBN Nahmir, Rich the Kid and Asian Doll -- a snippet of which has been obtained by TMZ.

In one of Danielle's verses, she goes in on Iggy by saying ... "Bitch don't compare me to Iggy // That old hoe is washed, And I'm lit // Wouldn't pay her to wash up my whip." 

It sounds like Bhad Bhabie -- Danielle's rap persona -- has been likened to the Aussie MC ... and BB doesn't like it. The only similarity, really, is that they're both white female rappers.

Your move, Iggy.

While we had her, Danielle also weighed in on how to properly blow your dough when you're a young celeb. Cash some wisdom ... outside.

Comedian Michael Blackson Heightens Beef with Kevin Hart With More Short Jokes

1/13/2018 12:57 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Blackson's taking his feud with Kevin Hart to another level ... by doubling down on jokes about Kevin's height and how he cheated on his pregnant wife.

The comedian skewered Hart during a portion of his stand-up set at The Wilbur Theatre in Boston Friday night, calling him a "midget with a regular ni**a's head" and a "punk bitch" ... among other insults.

Blackson also rips Kevin for essentially snitching on himself during his whole sex tape/extortion scandal.

Here's the backstory -- Blackson and Hart used to be friends, but Kevin took issue with Michael using his cheating fiasco as fodder for his comedy ... so he called him out during a 'Breakfast Club' interview by referring to Mike as "the Instagram model that just shows her ass and is looking for love."

Blackson took issue with that and vowed to keep blasting Hart, saying ... "when I'm done with you u will commit suicide by jumping off the curb you short f*ck."

Damn. It's on. 

Kim and Kanye Of Course We'll Be at Paris' Wedding!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had a casual night out Friday at the hottest restaurant in L.A.

K & K hit up Craig's in West Hollywood and they were characteristically un-chatty, EXCEPT on the way out.

Our photog asked Kim if she and Kanye would go to Paris Hilton's wedding. You'll recall, we got video of Paris a week ago saying it was a no-brainer -- she was inviting Kim to her wedding. They've had an up-and-down relationship over the years, but things have smoothed out.

As for Kim, you have to listen closely, but she says she and her hubby are absolutely down with attending the nuptials.

EXCLUSIVE

7:00 PM PT -- DJ Suede's clapped back online, saying without the song he made Danielle wouldn't even be doing music. He says ... "My team/lawyer already read y'all the contract several times for months and we have EVERYTHING on paper! HOW BOUT DAT," and added ... "Smh lol 15 minutes went by pretty fast huh."Danielle Bregoli's mom is going after DJ Suede in court for allegedly screwing Danielle on a deal ... all because Danielle turned him down to be her DJ.

Bhad Bhabie's mom just filed docs claiming Suede and his manager took advantage of her after she agreed to let him use her famous catchphrase, "Cash Me Outside," and her voice for one of his remixes.

According to the docs ... she was supposed to get half of the profits from the song as part of the deal. But she says Suede turned sour after she turned down his offer to be her tour DJ ... and claims he went on a warpath to defraud her after.

According to the suit ... the track's earned at least $250k in profits ... and she's suing Suede to get her cut.

Michael Rapaport 'Dick-Stain Donald Trump' ... Is a Terrorist

1/12/2018 6:44 AM PST

Michael Rapaport is not a fan of Donald Trump, we think, because he calls the Prez "Dick-stain Donald Trump," calls him a terrorist and says we need to make a citizen's arrest ... STAT.

Rapaport's trigger was Trump's comment Thursday, calling Haiti and African countries "shithole countries."

His ire is not limited to the President .... he skewers Donald Jr. and then goes after Melania, saying she's literally in bed with the devil.

You can feel the anger seep from Rapaport's body.

Seal Don't Twist My Words, I Wasn't Attacking Oprah!!! But, Stacey Dash ...

1/12/2018 6:54 AM PST

Seal is making the most epic stance ... against people who think he blasted Oprah, against people who call him an "Uncle Tom" ... and against Stacey Dash. Naturally.

The singer is firing back after getting backlash for an Instagram repost he put up Thursday ... seemingly calling out Oprah for knowing about Harvey Weinstein and keeping silent about it.

We say seemingly, because Seal now says everyone -- including Stacey and FOX News -- got it twisted, and he actually has great respect for Oprah. You just have to watch the video to get his explanation.

Beyond Oprah ... he also has some seriously harsh words for anyone questioning his "blackness" -- and this part of the rebuttal includes him breaking into song. It's tremendous.

We're still not sure he'd vote for Oprah, but we KNOW he ain't voting for Stacey!

Bella Thorne's BF Defends Mudslide Tweet ... Back Off, Rob Lowe!

1/12/2018 7:29 AM PST

Bella Thorne's bf is leaping to defend what might seem indefensible, and demanding Rob Lowe back off his girl ... despite her totally tone deaf comment about the deadly Montecito mudslides.

Bella's dating rapper Mod Sun, the guy she was trying to get to when she ignorantly tweeted about being inconvenienced by the mudslides blocking the 101 freeway. Rob subsequently called her out because she clearly knew nothing about the 17 people who'd been killed in the disaster.

Mod thinks Rob is guilty of shaming Bella, and went after the actor.

BTW ... looks like Bella eventually got to Mod's show. Whew!

EXCLUSIVE

UFC fighter Jeremy Stephens just hit Conor McGregor with the trash-talkin' KO of the century -- saying he's ready to turn up the heat with the Irishman's "hot" mom!!

You remember how the beef began -- after Jeremy called out Conor at a news conference for UFC 205, Conor whipped around and famously said, "Who da fook is dat guy?!" 

About a year later, Stephens shot back ... with a little help from Mama McGregor.

And now, Jeremy's taking it all the way.

"Maybe his dad can pick us up with the cab he used to drive and then take me and his mom out on a date," he told the guys on TMZ Sports (full interview airs tonight on FS1).

FYI, Stephens is in action -- the fighting kind -- this weekend at UFC Fight Night 124 ... and, of course, he says Conor's mom is invited! 

'Love & Hip Hop: Miami' Star Gets Death Threats ... After Heated Clash with Amara La Negra

1/11/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop: Miami" star Young Hollywood says his life is in danger ... all because he's been labeled a racist following a heated confrontation with co-star Amara La Negra.

A little backstory ... YH told Amara in the series premiere last week she needed to be "more Beyonce and less Macy Gray." He also called her psychotic after Amara took offense to YH suggesting she switch up her look ... most notably her Afro.

Amara ultimately stormed off after he referred to her as "Nutella Queen" ... and Young Hollywood's been torched online and threatened ever since.

YH -- who btw has worked with 2 Chainz and reggaeton superstars Nicky Jam and Cosculluela -- says he's wrongfully being crucified and the industry's sad standards are really to blame.

Johnny Weir I Don't Forgive Tonya Harding ... 'Did a Horrible Thing'

1/9/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Hollywood can forgive Tonya Harding if they want ... but Johnny Weir says that's NEVER gonna happen with him and the rest of the figure skating community.

We spoke with Weir the day after Harding got a shout-out at the Golden Globes ... and he told us why the inspiration for "I, Tonya" doesn't deserve a pass.

"She did a horrible, horrible thing," Johnny told TMZ Sports. "She's a pariah in our sport and she shouldn't be forgiven for basically, possibly having the opportunity of ruining somebody's life."

Of course, Weir's referring to the 1994 scandal where Harding's ex-husband hired a goon to attack rival Nancy Kerrigan before the Olympics.

Harding was subsequently blacklisted from ice skating -- and Weir says it should stay that way.

On a lighter note, Johnny told us Team USA looks great this year -- and name-dropped the one American skater we all gotta watch at the Games!

Kathy Griffin Trump Beheading Has NO Place in Neighbor War

1/8/2018 2:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kathy Griffin's drawing a line in her court battle with her neighbor ... and it has to do with the infamous Trump beheading image.

Kathy filed docs in the ongoing war with Jeffrey Mezger, asking the court to block him from dragging her comedy act into their court case. According to the docs, Mezger wants Kathy's act -- including the photo of her holding the "bloodied" Trump head -- to be used as exhibits.

Kathy says it's a blatant attempt to turn the case into a trial about her personality ... rather than focusing on the threats Mezger allegedly hurled at Kathy and her boyfriend.

In addition, Kathy says her home security cameras -- which Mezger complains invade his privacy -- are not hidden, and incapable of capturing any of Mezger's private conversations ... as he claimed. The judge ruled that Kathy can't use her security footage. 

The judge still has to rule on the other motion.
