Chris Brown

I'm Done Playing 'Hood' Clubs

1/13/2015 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0113-chris-brown-tmz-03Chris brown is finished taking chances ... he's ordered his manager to immediately cancel upcoming shows at any nightclub he thinks is "too hood" after the recent shooting in San Jose. 

A source close to Chris tells TMZ the singer called an emergency meeting instructing his crew to pull him out of all future bookings at venues with a history of violence or security issues. 

As TMZ previously reported ... five people were wounded when someone fired multiple shots at his show Sunday morning.

We're told Brown doesn't want to be associated with shootings -- and is making the change to protect his image, his ass, and his fans. Not necessarily in that order.

To that point ... Chris performed in a San Diego club the night after the shooting, and declared on Instagram, "No more n***a parties! Only this type s**t!"

... For Terminally Ill Fan

Eminem
isn't always the angry rapper who rips people on tracks ... sometimes he's the sweetheart who visits the home of a terminally ill fan ... and doesn't tell a soul about it. 

The fan in question is 17-year-old Gage Garmo ... who has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, and has been told he only has one week to live. Just three days ago, Gage's friends and family started up the hashtag #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem ... in an effort to ... well, it's obvious.

And it worked. We're told Em arranged for a home visit at Gage's place in Michigan ... which is only about 20 minutes from where Em lives.   

We're told Em was adamant he did not want the visit to become a media spectacle -- and quietly arrived to Gage's home around 5PM Sunday.

The two spent around an hour together -- talking and hanging out. We're told the whole thing meant a lot to Gage, who was in good spirits during the visit and after. 

The Real Slim Shady ... is just a big softy.

Leonardo DiCaprio & Rihanna

Gettin' Hot At Playboy Mansion

It wasn't Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday this weekend ... but it sure felt like it ... he was seen going straight up "Wolf of Wall Street" on Rihanna at the Playboy Mansion.

It's a good thing for Leo ... designer Nikki Erwin had boyfriend/producer Chuck Pacheco -- "Alpha Dogs," "My Sister's Keeper" -- invite him to her star-stacked 30th B-Day at the Playboy Mansion Saturday ... and our spies tell TMZ, Cap and RiRi were gettin' super steamy and even swapping spit.

A friend of Leo's tells us the kissing didn't happen ... but 2 people who were there say it did. BTW ... not that there's anything wrong with it. 

The two apparently seemed very comfortable getting hot and heavy around stars like Paris Hilton, Hilary Duff, Tom Hardy, Pamela Anderson, Naomi Campbell, and Tobey Maguire.

It's not clear if they left together but we're told they ended up at the same after-party -- along with 50 Cent -- and things got even hotter.

Make a wish.

Miley Cyrus

Burglary Victim ... AGAIN

0108_miley_cyrus_house_PCN_getty
Miley Cyrus has been burglarized for the THIRD time ... and this time the thief made off with a bundle.

We're told the singer's Toluca Lake home was hit December 16 and the thief made off with a large amount of both her and her brother's personal property. One law enforcement source says the thief got Miley's bank card.

We're told the thief broke into the home. We don't know how.

But cops think they got their man. Rusty Edward Sellner was charged with felony first-degree residential burglary, receiving stolen property and grand theft. He pled not guilty Wednesday.

This is the third time Miley has been hit in a little more than a year. Last June two thieves broke into Miley's home and got her Maserati, jewelry and other items. They were both arrested and convicted.

And in November 2013, someone broke into her home and stole $100K worth of jewelry and high-end purses.

City Of Inglewood

NFL Team Could Ram Housing Prices

... Through the Roof!

Exclusive Details

0108-rams-inglewood-getty-01Residents in Inglewood, CA are prepping for a REAL ESTATE BOOM if the owner of the L.A. Rams gets approval to build a new 80,000 seat stadium ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We know at least two homeowners association groups are holding meetings with residents this week with one clear message -- don't sell your homes!!! 

As one resident tells us ... "They told us that with the Rams coming over to Hollywood Park, our property values will definitely go up." 

Of course, the Rams-to-L.A. move is not a done deal yet (it will still need voter approval) ... but owner Stan Kroenke has announced plans to build a new stadium in Inglewood -- and he seems dead set on moving the team over ASAP. 

The Mayor of Inglewood is fired up about the potential move as well ... earlier this week he told residents a new stadium could revolutionize the city, which has struggled with a less-than-stellar reputation over the years. 

"The proposal [to build the stadium] if approved is another step along the way to potentially moving Inglewood from a City on the rise to a top tier metropolis," Mayor James T. Butts said. 

This could be the perfect storm for Inglewood ... in addition to the NFL possibility, Google is moving in to a massive 12 acre compound just a few miles away which will further fuel prices in the Inglewood housing market.

Mack 10's so happy right now ... 

Drake Bell

I'll Never Shred Again ...

And Here's Why

Exclusive Details

Drake Bell Wrist Injury
Drake Bell
's run-in with the bottom of a swimming pool is why his music career is now in jeopardy.

We now know why Drake came out this week and said doctors have given him the bad news ... he'll never play guitar again.

Drake was at his brother's house for a birthday party in November, horsing around in the pool when he dove in, not realizing the bottom was closer than he thought. Drake's wrist slammed into the concrete, shattering it.

Doctors performed surgery and rejiggered his wrist with plates and screws, and then put it in a cast. 

The cast was removed last week and after eyeballing the results Drake's doctors told him he will never be able to play guitar again. Shredding is way too taxing for his limited mobility.

So Drake can still sing, but his act has always included a guitar, so now he's gotta hire someone and it may not be the same.

But Drake is still banking on a medical miracle, with the help of intensive physical therapy.

0106-ludacris-and-wife-instagram-tmz-01Ludacris likes his proposals like he likes his movies ... FAST AND FURIOUS ... because we're told he got married over the holidays after proposing the very same day

According to our sources, Luda popped the question to long time GF Eudoxie during the day ... then took her out to dinner at a Georgia restaurant. When they returned home, a wedding dress was draped over a piece of furniture.  

This was all a surprise to Eudoxie, but she was game so they got married on the spot. A few friends and family members were there to celebrate.

BTW ... Luda's mom picked out the dress, and Eudoxie had no objections.

They blew out of town a day or so later for their honeymoon in Costa Rica.

Congrats!

Farrah Abraham

Pays Dearly for Lip Service

1/6/2015 12:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0106_Farrah-Abraham_LIPS_TWITTER_2No, a backdoor didn't smack Farrah Abraham in the face ... she got what could well be the worst lip injections in the annals of medical history.

Farrah may look monsterish, but that didn't stop her from posting the pics online herself with the caption, "Girlfriends don't say I didn't warn ya ! #BOTCHED California #ER #fixit"

We're told Farrah was getting a new procedure, where the doctor puts an implant in the patients lip ... which in theory is cost effective because you don't have to maintain the work with fillers.  

Farrah says she researched the doctor and the procedure and decided it was a safe bet. She was wrong.  She says the doctors injected her with an anesthetic before the procedure ... and believes she had a MAJOR allergic reaction.

Farrah is no stranger to artificially enhancing body parts, but this takes the cake.

The "Backdoor Teen Mom" star tried to put a good face on it, comparing herself to Leela from "Futurama."

0717_stuart_sensei_training_swipesStuart Scott was so passionate about continuing his MMA training during his fight with cancer, he REFUSED to quit ... even after doctors implanted a chemotherapy port into his chest.

"He was such an impressive person," says Sensei Darin Reisler ... who trained Scott in Connecticut.

Scott had said MMA training helped to get his energy up after grueling chemo sessions -- but Sensei Darin says Stuart wasn't just training to help himself. 

"He really looked out for the needs of others. He was the first person to volunteer to work with a new student, and he always had a smile on his face."

Brock is expected to be selected in April's NFL Draft ... at least according to Octogon sports ... a huge sports agency that reps some of the biggest stars in the world including Michael Phelps and Steph Curry

So, when Octogon approached him to sign a contract with the agency ... Hekking -- who became nationally recognized for his sweet mullet -- wanted to make the event special and personal. 

Which brings us to the In-N-Out burger joint in Vacaville, CA ... Brock's hometown. 

"I went every day after high school. It's where I dreamed of becoming a ball player ... so I thought it would be best to [sign my contract] there."

Here's the question ... what do you order to go with one of the most important documents of your life? 

"Two double-doubles, fries, and a drink."
