Beyonce & Jay Z

Check Out Our New $45 Million Palace

10/6/2015 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Jay Z and Beyonce got the last laugh after getting notice to leave the house they were renting ... because we've learned they got an even better house.

Our sources say Bey and Jay are now renting the $45 million Holmby Hills palace that was owned by ex-L.A. Dodgers owner Frank McCourt.

McCourt sold the house to a British billionaire last year for $45 million, but we're told the new owner was hardly in L.A. and it just sat vacant. So he recently decided to put it on the market for lease ... we're told for around $150k a month.

Our sources -- all of whom are people who were on hand this past weekend facilitating the move -- say Beyonce and Jay signed a 1-year lease. 

As for the house ... it's 20,000 square feet, complete with an indoor Olympic-sized pool complex and an outdoor pool with a waterfall and formal gardens. 

As we previously reported, Bey Z got the boot from their old rental in the same neighborhood after the owner decided to sell it.

We broke the story ... Jay Z and Beyonce are putting down stakes in L.A., largely because they think it's a good place to raise Blue Ivy.

NFL's Dorial Green-Beckham

Mug Shot

... Call Me 2 Chainz

10/6/2015 1:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006_Dorial-Green-Beckham_mug_sports_wm2Here it is ...the mug shot that ruined the NFL's arrest-free month in September -- courtesy of Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham

DGB was popped in Missouri last Wednesday for going 65 in a 55 ... and when the cop ran his info, it was discovered the 22-year-old had an outstanding warrant for a speeding violation in another county. 

He was hauled to a nearby station where Green-Beckham was booked and posed for a mug shot -- featuring 2 gold chains -- and was later released after paying his $92.48 debt. 

Note -- seems Dorial's high top fade gives him an additional 2 inches on the police measuring stick! 

Bill Cosby

Chloe Goins Sues ...

He's a 'Serial Rapist'

10/6/2015 1:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006_Chloe-Goins_bill_cosby_tmzBill Cosby was just sued by the woman who has triggered an active criminal investigation against the comedian. 

Chloe Goins -- who says she met Cosby at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 where she allegedly was given a date rape drug -- outlines in the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the claims 40 other women have made and then says, "The nature of these activities establishes a history of a serial rapist that has been conducting these horrendous activities against women for over the last 40 years."

She says she woke up naked in a room with Cosby who was at the end of the bed biting one of her toes. Goins claims Cosby quickly left the room when he noticed she was awake. 

The case is now under review by the LA District Attorney. 

Chloe is asking for more than $75,000 in damages. 


Ohio Gov. John Kasich

The Cavs Should Sign Allen Iverson!

10/6/2015 12:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The rumors have been swirling for months -- but now Ohio Gov. John Kasich tells TMZ Sports he hopes the Cleveland Cavaliers make it a reality ... and SIGN ALLEN IVERSON!!!! 

Iverson is 40 years old ... and hasn't been in the NBA since 2010 ... but for some reason, the A.I. to CLE rumors have found a life on Twitter, despite the fact they're completely unfounded. 

Still, Kasich says he's all for it -- "I'd love to have Iverson back in Cleveland ...  wow A.I.!!!"

Iverson retired in 2013 and his jersey was retired in Philadelphia last year -- but, Jordan came back once, right??


'16 & Pregnant' Whitney Purvis

Someone Gave My Dog Away

10/6/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-main-whitney-purvis-facebook-01"16 and Pregnant" star Whitney Purvis says her adorable Boston Terrier Chumpy ran away and was adopted by a new family before she even had a chance to look for him, so she's fighting the rescue shelter to get the pooch back.

Purvis says Chumpy was being watched by neighbors while she was on vacation when he ran away.

Animal control says they picked up a Boston Terrier Sept. 23 and kept him for the 3-day stray hold. No one claimed him, so the dog went to Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee and someone adopted him.

Whitney says BTRET refused to ante up the name of Chumpy's new fam. 

BTRET claims they did everything by the book, adding the dog wasn't tagged or microchipped.

Here's where the story doesn't add up ... animal control says it picked the dog up Sept. 23, the day before Whitney left for her trip ... so someone's lying.

We get all the fuss ... Chumpy's a cutie!


Glen 'Big Baby' Davis

Doc Rivers Could Beat Up Mark Cuban

10/6/2015 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If the biggest feud in the NBA ever comes to blows ... Doc Rivers would DESTROY Mark Cuban in a boxing match ... so says Glen "Big Baby" Davis

It's an interesting comment from Davis ... considering he's a free agent -- and the Clippers and the Mavericks both reportedly had interest in signing him over the summer.  

Check out the clip -- looks like Davis may be showing his cards about where he wants to land this season ... or he just really believes Doc is the superior fighter!


Makes it Rain in Dallas Strip Club

... Shake Ya Tailfeather!

10/6/2015 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nelly just proved he's still got money to burn by unloading a massive stack of cash on some Dallas strippers.

The rap star hit up VLive Dallas with a few friends Monday night and we're told the rain produced 31,000 singles.

The club can thank Drake for Nelly's donation -- we're told he showed up after hearing Drake rap about the joint.

So, we're guessing Drake will be sending over an invoice any day.


'Vanderpump Rules' Star

Sues Teeth Whitening Company

They're a Bunch of Jax Offs!

10/6/2015 9:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-jax-taylor-tmz-01"Vanderpump Rules" star Jax Taylor is looking to wipe the smile right off of a teeth whitening company's corporate face ... claiming his pearly whites have been jaxed. 

Taylor filed legal docs claiming he had a deal in 2009 with Lumibrite to pose for ads for its teeth whitening product. He says the deal ended a long time ago, but the company's kept using his mug.

This is Jax's second lawsuit in a month ...  he sued a shoe company in September for another endorsement deal gone wrong. 

We reached out to Lumibrite for comment ... so far, no word back.



Nick Gordon

The Brown Family is Screwing Me Over

I'm Not a Murderer

10/6/2015 9:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-nick-gordon-splash-01Nick Gordon says Bobbi Kristina's family is painting him as a murderer and scumbag to the point he will never get a fair trial if he's criminally prosecuted.

Gordon says in legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the Brown family has painted him a "murderer, a habitual batterer of women, a seducer of young white females, a thief and/or con man fueled by monetary gain, and a chemist capable of making a toxic cocktail."

Gordon is asking the judge to stop the $40 million wrongful death lawsuit the Browns filed against him until the criminal process runs its course.

The big thing for Gordon ... he says he has a right to remain silent, and the civil case would force him to answer questions that could be used against him if criminal charges are filed.


'Jerry Springer' Producer

Cops Say She Lied

Over Sister's Suicide

10/6/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0320-jill-blackstone-coleman-rayner-split-dateThe 'Jerry Springer' producer whose sister died in their garage is now in the hot seat with the LAPD, because TMZ has learned cops believe her story about the death doesn't make sense.

Jill Blackstone's sister Wendy died in March from a combination of carbon monoxide poisoning and Xanax. At the time it appeared Wendy, who was blind and partially deaf, committed suicide ... even leaving a note.  

Jill had said she had no idea Wendy wanted to kill herself. As for how a Weber grill and charcoal got into the garage, Jill told police the Weber grill was for warmth and the coals in the trash can were for roasting marshmallows.

But we've learned cops now paint a very different picture of what they say happened. Our law enforcement sources tell us when they first interviewed Jill she told cops she had no idea her sister wanted to kill herself. But cops say it's very clear Jill -- not Wendy -- wrote the "suicide" note.

Our sources say cops are "confident" Jill assisted her sister -- not out of vengeance but mercy for her condition. Even if Jill's motive was mercy-based, it would still be a crime, and we're told the case is now "on the front burner" for possible criminal prosecution.


Scott Disick's 18-Year-Old Chick

He's NOT My Boyfriend!!!

10/6/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005-scott-disick-lindsay-vrckovnik-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Scott Disick's 18-year-old travel companion says she's NOT sleeping with or dating him ... at least that's the story she's telling her friends.

Lindsay Vrckovnik insists she's never hooked up with Scott. She says she's been traveling with a group of models and met Scott in NYC, and hung out for a day. The girls wanted to move the party to Miami over the weekend, and according to what she's telling friends ... Scott happily followed.

Lindsay -- who's from Canada --  has a boyfriend there and the photos that surfaced have caused a problem between the two of them.

Whatever Lindsay claims ... she's having trouble convincing her BF for a few reasons. First, she and Scott didn't meet for the first time last week ... they hung out at least once before, in July, at a party in Malibu.

The second problem Lindsay has ... explaining the pics where she's all nuzzly with Disick. She says the pics are "misleading."

Kim Zolciak

Returning To 'DWTS' For Final Dance

10/6/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005-kim-zolciak-tmz-01Kim Zolciak hasn't danced her final dance on "Dancing with the Stars."

We're told the folks at 'DWTS' want Kim back for the season finale next month. The plan is to have her dance in several dances on the final show and all she needs is a green light from her doctor.

We're told Kim's on board, despite being kicked off the show after suffering a mini-stroke that unearthed a heart condition. She's not back to 100%, but she already made it out of the house Sunday to watch husband Kroy play in the Falcons game.

Zolciak was at the bottom of the barrel on the show before her medical emergency. At least one person's rooting for her.



'Empire' Star Jussie Smollett

I'm Not Bangin' Michael Sam

... Yes, I Watch 'Power'

10/6/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Empire" star Jussie Smollett is keeping it as real as his TV mama Cookie does ... saying he's NOT hookin' up with Michael Sam ... despite the fact they've been spending A LOT of time together recently.

Just last week, Sam posted 3 PICS with Smollett on social media ... leading some people to believe they were more than just friends. 

But when we saw Jamal Lyon working out in L.A. on Monday, dude wanted to set the record ... er, straight -- they're close, but ain't nobody humpin' around (shout-out to Bobby Brown). 

BONUS -- Smollett also responded to 50 Cent, who's been BLASTING "Empire" over social media ... but surprisingly, he didn't fire off a Lucious Lyon style retaliation. Instead, he's killing with kindness.
