The Game & Young Thug

Beef Squashed

A Capone Saves the Day

5/7/2015 2:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0507-jojo-young-thug-the-game-TMZ-01The Game and Young Thug put an end to their beef before anyone got shot ... and the truce was put together by a mutual friend ... with some major street cred.

Rapper JoJo Capone tells TMZ he brokered peace between Game and Thug late Wednesday ... after they'd traded some serious threats. Capone tells TMZ ... Game reached out to him after seeing a photo online of Capone and Thug together. He says Game didn't realize Capone was down with Thug ... and that opened the door to a summit. 

Capone says he got Game and Thug on the phone and explained ... they both needed to get back to making music, and not threats. Capone says he told them they needed to look at the big picture and call off the dogs before someone got hurt.

They got the message. Shortly after the call, Game confirmed the war is over.

Funny -- a guy named Capone is suddenly worthy of a peace prize.

Exclusive Details

0507-lael-collins-cowboys-GETTY-01Former LSU football star La'el Collins will get a $21,000 signing bonus ... after signing a free agent contract with the Dallas Cowboys ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We're told he's set to make $435k in his 1st year, $545k his second year and $656k in year 3. 

Our sources tell us ... when all is said and done, Collins will get the same dollar amount as the 7th pick of the 2nd round of the NFL Draft. 

Of course, La'el's draft stock plummeted after he was questioned by police in the shooting death of a pregnant woman. Before the incident, he was projected to be a 1st round draft pick.

For the record, Collins was never arrested and has not been named as a suspect.

Suspect Arrested

Exclusive Details

0506_adam_levin_flower_bomb_akm_gsiNice day for a white welcome -- Adam Levine just got blasted with powdered sugar on his way into Jimmy Kimmel's Hollywood studio.

The Maroon 5 frontman was actually taking time to greet fans when the sugar bomber attacked -- seemingly landing a head shot on Adam with some sweet sweet powder ... and leaving one side of his face completely white. He did NOT look happy. (Check out this new angle of the attack)

Unclear if the attacker was protesting on behalf of any particular group -- or just some idiot prankster -- but he was quickly detained by security until police arrived and arrested him for battery. Adam continued into the studio for his scheduled appearance.

No word on what he and the band will play, but our best guess -- "Sugar."

Exclusive Details

Threats are already flying between Young Thug and The Game -- but bullets could be next because Thug is REFUSING to change his upcoming plans to visit Game's turf.

The rappers have been blasting each other verbally since last night when Game got on the mic at a New Orleans club ... and warned Young Thug to squash his beef with Lil Wayne, or the Piru Bloods would get involved. He also dared Thug to come to L.A.

It got worse when Thug posted a video response -- complete with a friend brandishing an automatic weapon. 

Sources close to YT say he'll be in L.A. soon (they wouldn't be more specific) for some studio time, and he has no plans to change that after Game's threats. Ditto for a summer concert scheduled for the L.A. area. We're told Thug doesn't plan to do anything differently. In short, he ain't scurred.

We've reached out to Game -- no word back yet, but his threats are getting more detailed.

The Harlem Globetrotters added a new member to the squad -- he's 5'9" .... hails from Vatican City ... and can SPIN A BALL ON HIS FINGER .... welcome, Pope Francis!!!!

You HAVE to watch the video -- the guys try to help Mr. Pope pull off one of their signature tricks ... and he kinda sorta pulls it off! 

A rep for the team tells TMZ Sports, "This is only the 9th time in 90 years that we've had an honorary member. He knew who they were. He was laughing with the guys. He was very talkative."

In fact, the team actually invited their newest member to their Friday night game in Rome ... question is, will he suit up?

Answer from the rep: "I don't think so, he's pretty busy."

Lil B Money Stolen Hotem RoomRapper Lil B is furious $10,000 went missing from his hotel room -- and he's pointing the finger at the hotel staff ... after management gave him the boot for hotboxing the place.

Lil B tells TMZ he was staying at the Oakland Airport's Red Lion on Tuesday when the hotel kicked him out because guests were complaining about marijuana smoke coming out of his room.

The rapper claims hotel management told him security had entered his room while he was gone ... found a small bag of pot, and then asked him to leave.

When Lil B went back to his room to collect his things, he says he noticed $10,000 cash was missing. He went to the front desk to file a theft report, but claims the employee ignored him. He recorded that awkward encounter and posted it online. He also blasted the hotel staff on Twitter.

Since the hotel wasn't helping ... B says he went to Oakland PD to file a report. Cops tell us they are "still in the process of verifying if this incident occurred."

We reached out to the Red Lion Hotel for comment ... so far, no word back.

Mariah Carey

Nick Cannon Diss Song ...

NOT About Nick

Exclusive Details

You'd think Nick Cannon would be preparing for war against Mariah Carey after releasing her song, "Infinity," which seems to put him in her crosshairs, but she says it's not ... and he's buying it.

According to our sources, the song is about women in general and how some "lose themselves in their man." We're told Mariah says it is "not specifically about her relationship with Nick." 

As for the lyric that seems to say Nick doesn't have his own money, we're told Mariah was singing about men with no ambition to be successful ... doesn't seem to fit Nick.

Clearly there's no hate on Nick's side ... because he posted a photo pimping her new album.

Update_Graphic_Bar

1:40 PM PST -- Round's attorney William London tells TMZ that his client is only seeking full custody in the best interest of their daughter, it has nothing to do with money.

Update_Graphic_Bar_Grey_Gray

Rosie O'Donnell is fighting back against her estranged wife, and sources connected with Rosie say the wife is going for full custody of their daughter for one reason ... money.

Michelle Rounds is filing legal docs Tuesday, asking for full custody of their 2-year-old daughter Dakota. Michelle's lawyer told the New York Post full custody is necessary to protect the child's "general welfare."

But our Rosie sources are scoffing, saying that the couple has a prenup and this is nothing more than a money play, adding Rosie is a "devoted mother" and her parenting skills and dedication are well-documented.

The sources say Michelle is trying to hit Rosie where it hurts the most so she'll open her wallet.

One source says, "Michelle can't even raise a dog ... she's given multiple dogs away."

Jeremy Jackson

I Stabbed a Gangbanger with a Clown Tattoo

... In Self Defense

Exclusive Details

0427-jeremy-jackson-tmz-02Former "Baywatch" star Jeremy Jackson was arrested for stabbing a man, but he says it was self defense in the midst of a wild party. 

Jeremy was jailed Saturday, after cops nabbed him for allegedly burglarizing an Airbnb. Police say during the arrest they realized he fit the profile of a man who stabbed a guy the day before. 

Jeremy tells TMZ, he rented an Airbnb and threw a party with some women. During the shindig, he says a guy showed up, beat him up and robbed him to the tune of $2,300. 

This is where it gets bizarre. Jeremy says one of the women said she knew a guy who could help him get the money back, so Jeremy told her to get him over STAT. He says the guy showed up but then turned on him and tried robbing him as well.  

Jeremy says the guy pulled a gun, and in self defense he pulled a buck knife from his jeans and stabbed the guy in the stomach area and arms. The guy dropped the gun and ran. 

Jeremy identifies the guy as a Canoga Park gangbanger with a clown tattoo on his face.

As for the burglary ... Jeremy says he went back to the Airbnb the day after the stabbing to retrieve his Gucci sunglasses and some other items and had to break in to get them. That's when the cops were called.
