Mariah Carey I'm Making French's Hook 'Unforgettable'

8/23/2017 5:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

French Montana's hit, "Unforgettable," is about to be just that -- or even more so -- now that Mariah Carey is adding her vocals to a remix.

TMZ got this clip of the new version, which drops Thursday morning, and Mimi's taking over the hook. She drops the lines, "It's not good enough for me since I been with you. It's not gonna work for you. Nobody can equal me ... I know."

Almost like it was written for her in the first place ... right?

Swae Lee did it on the original, and he's still on it too ... just mixed with Mariah's smooth vocals.

Rihanna Snaps Up New Crib In Same Hood Kendall Left

8/23/2017 3:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kendall Jenner's WeHo hood is Rihanna's future hang ... 'cause she just closed on a mansion right near the house KJ fled. 

Sources close to the deal tell TMZ ... Rihanna recently purchased the crib above the Sunset Strip for a cool $6.8 million. It's got 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and just over 7,000 square feet of space. There's also a movie theater inside, a fully equipped gym, a fireplace, a billiard room and a guest house ... plus a pool and a huge yard.

It's also gated ... which could come in handy around those parts. As we reported, Kendall recently unloaded her WeHo home after about a year of grief -- which included a stalker encounter and a high dollar theft.

No sign of concern from Rihanna just yet, though. Just a moving truck.

Skip Bayless 'Jon Jones Is Finished'

8/23/2017 3:53 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jon Jones is DONE as a competitive fighter. Finished ... this according to Skip Bayless, who says it absolutely breaks his heart.

The FS1 star says he's gotten to know Jones through appearances on "Undisputed" -- and tells TMZ Sports news of JJ's positive steroids test crushed him.

"How can that guy be either so stupid, or so flawed, and ultimately so shockingly insecure, that you have to resort to steroids or whatever the PED was -- or any kind of drug?"

"He's just like a flawed human, but he's got so much potential. He's such a likable, nice guy."

In his parting message to Jones, Skip offered some tough love.

"Jon: I have tried for years to love you, and you just wouldn't let me love you. And in the end, I can't have any sympathy for you because you could've been the greatest."

Skip also looked back at JJ's appearance on "Undisputed" before his fight at UFC 214 ... and told us the way Jones acted seems pretty fishy now.

Akon 'Blacks for Trump' Guy's a Sellout ... Just Like the GOP

8/23/2017 2:20 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Akon thinks the guy holding the "Blacks for Trump" sign at his Phoenix rally has sold himself -- and the black community -- out for a quick buck ... not unlike the rest of the GOP.

We got the singer at LAX, and he gave us his 2 cents on Maurice Symonette ... the lone black dude behind Trump on Tuesday ... and he thinks it's a case of sell-your-soul ... a game he also believes is being played by other Republicans to protect Trump.

It doesn't sound like Akon knows about Symonette's past -- or his current political philosophies -- and it's interesting that he tries painting him as someone who only supports Trump for an alleged payoff. 

Still, he makes a good point about what the country is looking like these days -- a state of affairs he usually sees outside our borders.

Gavin Rossdale Cops Crash House Party ... at 10 PM!!!

8/23/2017 12:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gavin Rossdale needs to find new neighbors or a new place to party because the ones he has now aren't cool with his rock 'n' roll-ISH lifestyle.

Gavin pulled the plug on his house party in the San Fernando Valley after LAPD showed up for a noise complaint. Mind you, this was no 2 AM rager -- instead, we're told the call to cops came in around 10:15 PM.

When cops showed up, we're told they spoke to Gavin, and he was totally cooperative -- dropping the typical busted teenager line ... I was just breaking it up, anyway.

Gavin, who's dating model and actress Sophia Thomalla these days, has been hard at work in the studio lately, so maybe he was just feeling a groove.

Judge to DMX I'll Let You Off House Arrest If You Get Into a Drug Program

8/23/2017 10:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DMX is off house arrest with one big catch -- he's gotta check into a treatment program to get clean ... TMZ has learned. 

A judge signed off this week on X entering an inpatient treatment program for substance abuse -- and as part of the deal, he'll be able to leave his house without wearing an ankle monitor.

According to the court docs, obtained by TMZ, all other bail conditions are in place for X while he's out on bond for his federal tax evasion case. He'll still have to get permission to travel out of New York state, but can travel to the facility without issue. It's unclear where the treatment program is located.

X's attorney, Murray Richman, tells us X entered rehab because his drug usage had become impossible to manage. 

As we first reported ... he's already requested approval to travel for some shows, but we don't know if his treatment will affect those concert dates.

Dallas McCarver 911 'There's Something In His Throat'

8/23/2017 8:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained the Dallas McCarver 911 call -- made by a friend who found the 26-year-old bodybuilder passed out in his apartment ... after apparently choking on food. 

The friend tried like hell to help McCarver -- performing CPR and other lifesaving maneuvers -- but he wasn't able to bring him back. 

The friend says McCarver had been taking Insulin -- and suggested he may have collapsed because of a medical condition related to the medicine, which usually treats diabetes. 

McCarver had collapsed onstage at a bodybuilding event back in March. It seems the friend believes McCarver may have experienced a similar situation while eating, which led to the fatal choking episode. 

McCarver was transported to a nearby hospital and was pronounced dead early Tuesday morning.

John Legend You Can't Teach an Old President New Tricks

8/23/2017 6:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Legend says the ship has sailed for him when it comes to Donald Trump because, well, you know what they say about leopards.

John arrived at LAX Tuesday night and our photog wanted to know if Trump's statements about bigotry and racism have earned him a second chance. John could not be clearer -- how he says it is as significant as his words.

John clearly thinks ideology combined with age make it impossible for a man like Donald Trump to see the light.

Bob Harper I Got A Second Chance ... I'm Doin' It Veggie Style!!!

8/23/2017 7:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

PETA has a friend in Bob Harper, who says he's cut meat completely out of his diet after almost dropping dead from a massive heart attack back in February.

We got the 'Biggest Loser' trainer and host in Bev Hills Tuesday and he looked healthy as a horse. 

While his heart attack was triggered in part by genetics, Bob says he's made a bunch of lifestyle changes after getting a second chance at life, which is crazy to think since he was already such a health nut.

'Cash Me Outside' Girl Drops Rap Single Calls Out 'These Heaux'

8/23/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

14-year-old "Cash Me Outside" girl Danielle Bregoli is a rapper now -- and she's calling out broke bitches, fake bitches and jealous bitches. 

Basically, she hates all the bitches. 

TMZ obtained a snippet of her upcoming single, "These Heaux" (pronounced "Hoes") -- which contains the following lyrics: 

"These hoes be lackin', see me in back and ... they talk all this sh*t but don't say it in person." 

"Water, water drippin', come take a peek ... you in a trailer ho, bitch you can't compete."

She also brags about sippin' lean, riding in a Maybach and being able to keep a man.

By the way, she's dead serious about her rap career and even picked a rap name -- "Bhad Bhabie."

It's pronounced baby ... no offense to Barbie and her crew. 

Michelle Rodriguez In a Self-Imposed News Blackout ... And Lovin' It!!!

8/23/2017 6:57 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michelle Rodriguez hasn't read or seen the news in 2 months, and she couldn't be more stoked.

We got Michelle Tuesday in Bev Hills and she told us she can't handle all the depressing stories about politics, racism, terrorism, and on and on, so she just tuned it all out.

You might call it burying your head in the sand, but on the other hand ... just look at her body language and her facial features. Michelle looks calm and happy, so, as a famous politician might say ... who's winning now?

Mayweather vs. McGregor Hollywood Gettin' Lots of Free Tix ... But Don't Bug Floyd for Any

8/23/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor's fight was already gonna be a who's who of Hollywood -- the question now ... who's in good enough with a top agent to go for free?

Sources close to the boxing match this Saturday tell TMZ Sports ... talent agency WME's head, Ari Emanuel, as well as one of his company's core financiers, Silver Lake, has snatched up 250 tickets to the Vegas event ... and he's doling 'em out to Tinseltown's finest.  

We're told most tickets cost $10k -- for a price tag of around $2 MILLION, and most are going to WME clients. 

Here's the thing ... Ari's got a helluva lot of famous clients -- everyone from Charlize Theron to Oprah to Steven Spielberg and almost every big name in between. We don't know which clients got the tix, but there are a lot of happy ones.

Remember, WME bought UFC last year, and Silver Lake helped back the $4 billion deal. Guess it helps to have friends in high places when worlds collide. 

As for Floyd, we're told he's pissed off that celebs and others are hounding him for freebies this week while he's preparing for the fight, and he's gone radio silent on everyone. He's already doled out the tickets he's been given, and he's not going into his pockets for celebs in search of a free fight.
