YG & Nipsey Hussle Cops Shut Down 'F*** Trump' Video Shoot

4/4/2016 8:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0404-nipsey-hussle-INSTAGRAM-01YG and Nipsey Hussle had to assume the position during their music video shoot in L.A. ... as cops swarmed to disperse the crowd shouting, "F**k Donald Trump!"

The music video was for their song, "F**k Donald Trump" -- so that explains the chants -- but LAPD clearly thought things were getting out of control. Witnesses tell us about 100 people fell in behind the rappers while they shot the video Sunday in South L.A. 

Cops responded in riot gear ... and quickly shut down the shoot. Law enforcement sources tell us the officers were responding to a call for cars cruising the streets and the crowd that had gathered to watch. We're told LAPD had no idea it was a music video shoot.

There was at least one car out of control on set. Check out this Corvette doing donuts and taking OUT a bystander! Amazingly, the guy walked away seemingly without injury. 

Sources on set tell us Nipsey and YG got plenty of footage before cops moved in, so ... the music video's not in jeopardy.

040116-horse-coachella-gettyCoachella fans opting out of fancy hotels, condos or mansions ... can park their asses and their horses at a huge 3 day camping party.

Vestal Village is an invite-only camping party that coincides with the Coachella festival. VV is going down at a secret location in the desert outside Palm Springs -- but we've uncovered a few clues about the scene that's been planned.

For one, we're told there will be stalls to accommodate horses and horseback rides -- however, BYOH. There will also be an Olympic sized pool and a lake. Eagles of Death Metal are headlining the event, which is sponsored by Vestal Watch, Gevitta and Estrella Damm.

We're told they're expecting about 6,000 people to attend the massive Coachella after parties.

That's a lot of dung.

0331-kim-k-amber-rose-TMZ-01Amber Rose took a big ole chunk of Kim Kardashian's ass and planted it squarely on her new emoji app ... at least that's what friends are telling her. 

Sources close to Amber tell TMZ she and Kim have a ton of mutual friends ... and Amber's phone has been blowing up all morning about the release of her new MuvaMoji app. We're told everyone can see a ton of similarities, if not exact copies, between several of the images. 

Compare the emojis side by side, and it's kinda obvious ... facial expressions, a peach, booty, boob and strippers on poles.

Bottom line? Both are killing it in the app store, so maybe there IS room for 2 big asses.

033016-dangelo-nick-young-tmz-gettyD'Angelo Russell has apologized to Nick Young in a face-to-face meeting earlier Wednesday -- and Nick accepted ... but things are still icy between the two.  

As previously reported, Lakers honchos organized a sit-down between the players to hash things out over a video that Russell secretly shot of Young apparently admitting to cheating on his fiancee Iggy Azalea

Sources close to Young tell us he accepted Russell's apology and the beef is squashed for now ... but as our source put it, "Everything is cool but it ain't gonna be the same."

As for Iggy ... she went horseback riding today to clear her head. We're told she's reevaluating her relationship with Nick and is considering calling off the engagement

Nick Carter Community Service for Bar Fight And He Can Still Drink

Exclusive Details

0330-nick-carter-tmz-01Nick Carter's battery charge for brawling with a bouncer in the Florida Keys could be wiped from his record if he keeps his nose clean.

Prosecutors say they'll drop the battery charge if Nick completes 25 hours of community service in the next 6 months.

Here's what's interesting ... Nick seemed pretty wasted at the time of his arrest, outside a popular bar -- but prosecutors aren't banning him from drinking during the 6 month period. However, they do say he should not use booze "to excess."

Nick's still facing a civil lawsuit from the bouncer he fought.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Mo' Money, No Problems ... Drop Stacks On New Ride

Exclusive Details

0329-kanye-kim-west-new-car-akmgsi-01Kim Kardashian and Kanye West added some shiny new wheels to their fleet, but their luxury ride is missing one important option.

Kimye splurged on a white Maybach, which they drove Monday to an appearance on Khloe Kardashian's TV show. Here's the thing ... Maybachs are typically chauffeur driven ... but there was Kanye behind the wheel as they pulled away yesterday.

Base price for this uber fancy Benz is typically $200k. Kanye's has all the bells and whistles, so we're guessing theirs was double that after getting the works from the popular customizers at Platinum Motorsport.

And in case you're wondering, no financing on this whip. They busted a Randy Moss -- straight cash, homie.


A Tribe Called Quest Gets Crucial Stamp of Approval For NYC Street Cred

Exclusive Details

0329-tribe-called-quest-getty-02Phife Dawg is one key step closer to getting a permanent tribute in his hometown -- renaming the street he rapped about all the time ... A Tribe Called Quest Boulevard. 

After Phife died last week, a petition was started to encourage city council members to co-name Linden Blvd (represent, represent) in Queens. It's already approaching its goal of 5,000 signatures. 

Sources involved in the campaign tell us they crossed another hurdle -- getting Phife's family to sign off on the plan. We're told NYC requires such approval before putting a celeb name on a street sign. Also, Councilman Daneek Miller says he's fully behind the plan because "A Tribe Called Quest is fundamentally important to the history of Queens." 

There are also proposals on the table to co-name streets in honor of The Notorious B.I.G., Big Pun and Wu-Tang Clan.


Katt Williams Arrest Warrants Issued For Fight with Kid

Exclusive Details

032816-katt-williams-luke-walsh-tmz-dailymailupdate_graphic_red_bar2:50 PM PT -- We've confirmed Luke Wash is in custody. He was booked Monday afternoon and held on a $1,300 bond.update_grey_gray_barKatt Williams and the 17-year-old kid he fought are both wanted by cops now ... TMZ has learned.

Police in Gainesville, GA tell us Katt and the kid, Luke Wash, have been charged with disorderly conduct. We're told a Hall County judge issued arrest warrants after the charges were filed.

Cops say the fight, which included foul language being used in front of minors -- is a violation of his conditional bond from his arrest for allegedly assaulting one of his bodyguards. Police have contacted Katt's lawyer to discuss him turning himself in, but if he doesn't, we're told cops are ready to go find him.

We're told Wash was charged because in Georgia, 17-year-old offenders are considered adults.

Gov. Chris Christie Buy My Gym Shorts ... 5XL Gear for Sale!!

3/25/2016 8:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0325-chris-christie-ebay-01Gov. Chris Christie's autographed workout shorts -- big enough for two, really -- are HUGE ... on eBay.

The seller of the 5XL gym shorts is hawking them as the real deal, straight outta the closet of Jersey's big man. They include a Presidential Physical Fitness Award badge, and Christie's rather ironic signature and note ... "Stay in shape."

Now, Christie's office has yet to confirm the shorts, size 60 waist, are legit and the seller tells TMZ ... she only came into 'em second hand. She says her dad bought 'em for $10 at a garage sale -- where that seller claimed to have won them in a Christie fundraiser raffle.

We did our own comparison of the signatures, and uh ... not exactly a match. At all.

0325-sub-chris-christie-signature-ebay-wikki-01The BIG question, of course ... are they used? The seller makes no promises, but we know this -- ya won't find a single ice cream stain on them.

The Guv's real good with a cone.

Spring Break Viral Video Football Show-off Wanted by Cops ... Blows Whistle On Himself

Exclusive Details

A spring break bro with a cannon for an arm is facing up to 6 months in jail after nailing a cop car with his football -- a dumbass move that went viral.

Gulf Shores PD in Alabama has issued an arrest warrant for Kameron Lane Heady after officers, like thousands of other people, saw the clip of Heady winding up and targeting one of their units patrolling the beach last week.

Cops down in Gulf Shores responded to the video with their own, saying -- "Great arm, Bad decision" and informed Heady they were looking to put him in cuffs. Sounds funny, but cops tell us they're serious as a judge in a wet t-shirt contest. 

Cops tell us Kam hasn't turned himself in yet. Max punishment if he's convicted of misdemeanor harassment would be a $500 fine and 6 months in jail. It's unlikely he'd get locked up, but that $500 would buy a lot o' kegs.   


Katt Williams I Punched That Kid 'Cause He Threatened Me

3/24/2016 7:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Katt Williams attacked a kid during an Atlanta soccer match because the kid had gotten all up in his business, and aggressively ... so allege sources connected with the comedian, and new video seems to at least partially support his claim. 

Katt punched the boy in Gainesville, outside ATL, and it was caught on video. The boy then pounced on Katt, putting him in a rear naked choke hold.

The first video that surfaced shows the punch but almost nothing before. The new video shows the kid and his buddies following Katt, who sits passively against a wall. The kid seems to challenge Katt, accusing him of talking crap.

It seems Katt is trying to diffuse the situation, but the kid orders him to stand. When Katt gets up, the kid approaches him and gets inches from his face. That's when Katt strikes.

As we reported, cops are investigating the incident. 

What's more ... the video that surfaced Wednesday (top) shows Katt punching the kid and then the young man puts Katt in a rear naked choke hold. But check out the video below. Sources connected to Katt tell TMZ they believe it clearly shows the video released Wednesday was altered and the kid actually put Katt in a headlock BEFORE the punch.  

When you watch the video above, look closely at Katt's hair, which gets messed up when the kid has him on the ground. Katt's hair is also messed up when he punches the kid.

The kid insists Katt punched him first. It's possible, of course, there was a prior punch not captured on video.

Sarah Palin TV Judge in Court of Common Sense

Exclusive Details


Sarah Palin ... the next Judge Judy. That's exactly the plan hatched by the guy who put Judy on TV.

 Palin will be shooting a pilot for a TV courtroom show featuring her as the lady in black. It's being produced by Larry Lyttle, who had an idea 20 years ago that the family court judge from NYC might be good TV.

Lyttle tells TMZ he'll shoot a pilot with Palin in the next few months and then try to sell the show in syndication for launch in Sept., 2017.   

Small issue ... Palin's not a judge. Lyttle says not necessary, because she'll preside over "the courtroom of common sense," adding, "She's appointed judges and is well equipped as a former governor to preside over cases." 

Lyttle has a good track record for sure ... in addition to Judge Judy, he produced the Judge Joe Brown courtroom show, which lasted for years.

Chicago Blackhawks Prospect Charged In Revenge Porn Case

Exclusive Details

0321-garret-ross-GETTY-01A hockey player drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks is being prosecuted over revenge porn -- after officials say he shared a sex photo of a woman he should have known was not meant for other eyes.

The man at the center of the case is 23-year-old Garret Ross -- who was drafted by the Hawks in 2012 and currently plays for their minor league affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs. 

According to official records obtained by TMZ Sports, Ross has been charged with one felony count of "non-consensual dissemination of private sexual images" ... more commonly known as revenge porn. 

Officials say back in August, the player shared a photo of a woman "engaged in a sexual act, which was obtained under circumstances which Ross should have known the image was to remain private."

Officials say Ross also should have known the woman "had not consented to the dissemination."

It's a big deal, especially in Illinois ... one of 28 states with harsh anti-revenge porn laws. If convicted, he faces up to 3 years in prison. 

Meantime, the judge in the case agreed to modify his bond -- allowing him to travel out of the state for work ... a must for a pro athlete. 

He's due back in court next week.
