Solange Knowles Celebrates Big 3-0 Bey and Jay Join the Party

6/28/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0627_solange_knowles_birthday_party_rental_launch_2Solange Knowles rang in the dirty thirties in a tiny town barely big enough for Beyonce and Jay Z.

Solange, along with 12 friends and family members, spent the weekend in itty-bitty San Patricio, New Mexico on a 2,200 acre ranch ... all for a very reasonable $2k.

Beyonce and Jay Z flew in for the night. The low-key shindig featured a pool party and New Orleans-style catering ... and, of course, Domino's pizza.

And to burn off the calories ... strutting around the White Sands National Monument.

There was also a mini concert ... Solange serenaded guests on a Steinway in the ranch art gallery.

Minor League Baseball GM On Stadium Gun Night: 'You Can't Please Everyone'

6/24/2016 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0624_Battle-Creek-Bombers_facebookThe GM of the Battle Creek Bombers minor league baseball team says a promotion that encourages fans to bring their guns to Friday night's game ... is just not that big of a deal. 

The event is called "2nd Amendment Education Night" -- and fans are allowed to bring weapons into the ballpark ... as long as they don't drink alcohol. 

We spoke with General Manager Tony Iovieno who says he knows there's controversy surrounding the event -- but says the team is definitely NOT calling it off. 

"There are always going to be folks who don’t agree with what we do. We just had LGBT Pride Night the other night and some people didn’t like that either. You can’t please everyone."

Iovieno says there are "misconceptions" about the event  -- "This was meant to promote firearm safety. Western Michigan is different from big cities. Carrying a gun is much more the norm here. It’s a different culture. Michigan is an open carry state."

Iovieno says the team is working with local law enforcement and they're bringing in extra security to ensure everyone's safety. 

We also spoke with Battle Creek Mayor Dave Walters who says ... "We are doing everything we can to make sure tonight goes off without a hitch. I feel comfortable that everyone will be safe. You can never use the 'G' word … guarantee. But I feel comfortable."

By the way ... tonight also happens to be Boy Scouts Night and Fireworks Night at the ballpark.

Olsen put his custom '69 Chevy Camaro convertible up for auction -- with the entirety of the winning bid going to his HEARTest Yard charity ... which provides medical services to families of babies with heart problems.  

0624-greg-olsen-car-update-02Well, NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick -- owner of Hendrick Motorsports -- saw the whip and HAD to have it ... throwing down $100k to win the auction. 

FYI, Hendrick is a HUGE car collector -- and loves Camaros -- so it was a perfect fit. 

Even better news ... the auction house, Barrett-Jackson -- didn't take one cent of commission, ensuring every penny will go to the charity. 

Pretty cool.

0623-kelly-mcgillis-top-gun-GETTY-01"Top Gun" star Kelly McGillissays she was the victim of a scary home break-in and her intruder got physical.

McGillis tells TMZ she walked into her North Carolina home Friday night to find a woman standing in her kitchen with a young girl. Kelly says when she asked who the lady was ... she said Kelly had been stalking her on Twitter.

Kelly's baffled ... she says she's never met the intruder nor had any interaction with her. 

The actress says she tried to escape, but the woman attacked ... knocking Kelly to the ground, scratching her and pulling her hair. During the struggle, she managed to set off her car alarm which scared the intruder just long enough for Kelly to break away.

She says she screamed for help from her front yard, but no one -- including a neighbor she says was home -- came to her rescue. Instead, she had to drive down the road to someone else's house to call 911.

Police arrived and busted Laurence Marie Dorn for burglary, larceny, stalking, assault and battery, and interfering with emergency communication.

She's still in jail on a $60k bond. 

Dez Bryant Sued Allegedly Trashed Texas Mansion ... 'Trash, Feces, Odors'

6/22/2016 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0622-dez-bryant-tmz-02Dez Bryant has been sued for allegedly causing more than $60,000 in damage to a Texas home owned by a state senator ... a man who claims Bryant left the home littered in "trash and feces."

The man behind the lawsuit is Royce West -- a member of the Texas senate -- who says he rented out his 6,400 square foot 6 bed, 7.5 bath mansion to the Dallas Cowboys WR from 2013 to 2016. 

In the suit, West says Bryant was paying $4,720 per month ... and agreed to leave the home in good condition. 

0622_dez_bryant_house_launchBut West says ... when Bryant left the home in January, the place was a disaster ... "a state of serious disrepair."

In fact, West says the place was covered in "animal feces, trash, missing blinds and shutters, with cracked windows and blackened carpeting."

He says there were also "distinct and pervasive odors throughout" the home.

West says he was forced to undergo a MASSIVE cleanup to restore the home including: 

-- removing trash and furniture

-- repainting the entire residence 

-- cleaning, removing and replacing flooring and carpeting 

-- replacing the lighting and ceiling fans 

-- replacing windows and screens

-- replacing the home security system 

In the end, the repairs cost $61,546.77. 

BTW, this is the home where Dez famously lived with his pet monkey last year. Unclear if that explains the animal feces. 

West says he approached Bryant and his team and demanded the money for the repairs -- but Bryant threw up the X ... and never forked over the dough. 

West says he's been unable to rent the place out due to the damage and repair work -- and wants a TON of cash from Bryant ... somewhere between $100k and $200k. 

We reached out to Bryant's reps -- so far, no word back.

Disney Attack Hilton Apologizes for Biting Email

Exclusive Details

0617-hilton-hotel-orlando-03Hilton Grand Vacations Club is apologizing for sending an email urging members to "take a bite out of Orlando" just hours after 2-year-old Lane Graves' body was retrieved from Disney's Seven Seas Lagoon.

Hilton reps tell us the email was written and scheduled for distribution far in advance of Tuesday's horrific alligator attack. They became aware of the poor choice in words when people began blasting them on social media. 

According to HGVC, "a bite" was in reference to the new Mako hypercoaster at the nearby SeaWorld whose mascot happens to be a shark.

Hilton says from now on it will review pre-scheduled content more carefully.

Anthony Kiedis stumbled into the opportunity to play a real life hero -- for a panicked mom and her unconscious child -- and the rock star knocked it out of the park.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman says it went down while he was shooting that "Carpool Karaoke" with James Corden that everyone's talking about this week.

Anthony described the insane scene when they stopped for a break and suddenly a woman holding a baby ran out of her house screaming, "My baby can't breathe!" 

Check out the clip ... AK makes it sound like it was no big deal, but ... IT'S A BIG DEAL!

Witnesses tell us the mom was beyond grateful, and seemingly had NO IDEA a famous singer saved her child's life. Not that it matters.

By the way, Anthony's CPR skills? Honed as a surfer and as a dad.  

Lil Wayne It Wasn't Sizzurp ... I Just Didn't Take My Meds

6/16/2016 10:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0613-lil-wayne-tmzLil Wayne says his latest round of seizures were not triggered by sizzurp ... he says it all emanates from a chronic condition -- epilepsy, and the medications he takes to control it.

The rapper's private jet was forced to make 2 emergency landings earlier this week because he hadn't been taking his meds and had several epileptic attacks on the plane.

As for why he wasn't taking his Rx ... Wayne's rep tells us he went to a pharmacy in Milwaukee where he was performing but they didn't have the medicine in stock. He thought he could do without it for a few days, but he was wrong.

TMZ broke the story ... people who were at the club tell us Wayne was drinking "massive amounts" of sizzurp before the seizures started.

As we previously reported, Lil Wayne returned to the stage just 2 days after he was released from the hospital.

Trey Songz got tired of watching Drake have all the fun, and put together a rival poolside turn up.

The singer spent $25k to rent a MASSIVE 23,000 square foot home Sunday in McLean, Virginia -- just outside DC -- and the guest list was 700 deep, including Kevin Durant and a bunch of Washington Redskins players.

Check out this video from inside the event -- Trey was nice enough to introduce a chick to the pool. He teamed up with DC promoter Bobby Patterson to pull it off and dropped another $50k just for the open bar. Food? A mere $8k.

Despite hiring 30 security guards, chick fights still broke out. See? Just like Drake's pool party.

0613-draymond-green-oakland-as-golden-state-warriors-TMZ-01Draymond Green was asked to throw out the first pitch at Monday's Oakland A's game -- but respectfully declined ... this according to a rep for the A's. 

With the Golden State Warriors star serving a 1 game suspension -- and unable to be in the arena for Game 5 of the NBA Finals -- Green said he would be attending the A's game, located right next to Oracle Arena. 

TMZ Sports spoke with A's Director of Corporate Communications, Catherine Aker, who confirmed Green will be in the stadium ... but doesn't want to make a spectacle. 

"We extended an invitation to Draymond to throw out the first pitch and he declined. He would prefer to keep a low profile while at our game."

Green will reportedly be allowed inside the arena to celebrate with his team if they win -- and it just so happens there is a tunnel which connects the Oakland Coliseum to Oracle Arena.
