Rapper Belly Wailed On by Coachella Guards ... Crazy Vid During The Weeknd's Set!!

4/21/2018 11:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Belly was the recipient of several flying fists from security guards during The Weeknd's performance at Coachella ... even though the rapper performed at the fest earlier in the night.

Belly -- who actually has a hit song with The Weeknd -- was in a line of people walking from the sound booth to the VIP area near the main stage while The Weeknd was singing "The Hills" ... according to witnesses.

For whatever reason, about 10 men who appear to be Coachella security staff start PUMMELING Belly ... and don't let up for several seconds. The video's wild.

Belly isn't letting it get him down, though. He just tweeted, "No negative bulls**t can steal my joy" and added earlier ... "I'm great y'all. I love you." He also got a shot in at the guards who went after him, saying ... "20 of you p***ies couldn't take me off my feet."

We're told police were not involved in the incident -- by the time they showed up everyone had dispersed and no report was taken.

We reached out to Belly and Coachella organizers about the fracas ... so far no word back.

4/21/2018 1:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom's new lease on life since coming out of a coma has made him want to improve other people's lives too ... enter his cannabis company.

We got the former NBA Champion at Five Star Juice in Torrance, CA Friday and talked to him about the release of his brand of marijuana products, called Rich Soil, which he believes can help people with their ailments ... like it's helped him.

Odom says his goal to get people "healthy high," saying ... "I want to get people better, bro. If I can get 'em high, I can get 'em better."

He tells us he's been working on the cannabis idea for a year, and doesn't give a damn about haters who think he shouldn't be in this business ... because he believes he's living proof the stuff works.

Lamar also touches on making a basketball comeback, which he told us about a couple days ago too.

Unclear how snacking on Starburst fits into his plan.

EXCLUSIVE

11:25 AM PT -- Oman police say Avicii's body will be flown home to Sweden this week. Still no word on the cause of his death.

One of Avicii's family members is on the ground in Oman leading the charge to find out what killed the world famous DJ ... TMZ has learned.

Sources in Oman tell us Avicii's older brother, David Bergling, checked into an upscale hotel in the capital city of Muscat on Friday evening ... hours after Avicii was found dead. We're told the hotel where he's staying is about 15 minutes away from Muscat Hills -- the resort where Avicii had been vacationing.

As we showed you, the EDM superstar posed for several photos with fans at the resort, and witnesses say he appeared to be in good spirits during his time there.

According to reports in Avicii's native Sweden, he had checked out of Muscat Hills sometime last week. One of the things David is likely looking into is exactly where his brother and a small group of friends went in the days leading up to his death. 

Avicii comes from a very famous family in Sweden. His mother, Anki Liden, and another brother are both actors. David is a hotelier in Sweden.

EXCLUSIVE

Former Destiny's Child singer Farrah Franklin didn't join Beyonce on stage at Coachella, but she's making it clear -- she's fully on board for the next reunion ... if the queen will have her.

Farrah was a member of DC for about 6 months in 2000 -- she was on the "Say My Name" remix -- and she watched Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams onstage last weekend. Zero bitterness, though ... she says she was thrilled like everyone else.

She says she wasn't invited to be part of the Coachella gig -- and didn't really expect to be -- but she sounds keen on Bey organizing a more complete reunion in the future.

For now, Farrah's happy doing modeling, acting and her own music ... which includes a trap collab with Maino. All that being said, she'd squeeze in some time for her ex-group mates if the phone rings.

Jermell Charlo Vows to Sue Gym Over Alleged Racial Incident

4/21/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Boxing champ Jermell Charlo is convinced he was banned from working out at a fancy NYC gym because he's black -- and now he's threatening to sue the hell out of them. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Charlo who's still VERY pissed over what went down at Life Time Athletic Fitness in Manhattan on Thursday night ... when he and his crew were told they would NOT be allowed inside. 

Charlo says they showed up to work out with his brother, boxing star Jermall Charlo -- who was already inside the building -- but the gym staff refused to let the crew purchase a day pass. 

Charlo claims his crew was falsely accused of smelling like weed. He believes the real reason they were turned away is because he's "a black man."

Cops were called to the gym but no arrests were made. 

Jermell says he doesn't want an apology -- he wants revenge in court -- because he wants the whole world to see what happened to him. 

As for the gym, a rep denies Charlo was racially profiled but apologized for the "misunderstanding concerning our guest policy."

4/21/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 just keeps throwing his money around and this time he's doing it on several pieces of bling that put a $22,500 hole in his pocket.

The NYC rapper linked with Houston-based jeweler JimmyBoi for a pair of rings and two new grills. One ring is of a spinning 69, while the other is a spinning rainbow made out of colorful enamel. There's about 15 carats of diamonds on both atop 14k gold. Grand total ... $17,500.

We're told the grills are made out of white gold and colorful enamel and cost about $5k.

As for that dent in 6ix9ine's bank account, hardly as bad as the one he might have after Saturday's Broner vs. Vargas fight. This is more like chump change.

EXCLUSIVE

UFC fighter Brad Tavares is doubling down on his weekend call-out of Michael Bisping ... telling TMZ Sports the ex-champ is ducking him 'cause he's terrified of getting THRASHED.

"I think he’s scared ... scared to get his ass beat," Tavares said. "What else could it be?"

FYI, the Hawaiian went looking for Bisping backstage after he merked Krzysztof Jotko at UFC on FOX 29 ... to call out the UFC legend for his retirement fight. 

Bisping LOL'd at Tavares' challenge -- telling the top-10 middleweight to "get the f**k out!"

But, Brad ain't giving up -- saying there's no better option for him unless he's gunnin' for Conor McGregor (yeah ... ain't gon' happen). 

That said, Tavares is also down to scrap with another up-and-coming star ... and says he'll "expose him" if he gets the chance!

Mel B, Stephen Belafonte We're Slashing Prices ... Buy Our House, Please!!!

4/21/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There IS one thing Mel B and Stephen Belafonte agree on -- their Hollywood Hills home has gotta go, and the exes are knocking another half mil off the asking price to get it done.

TMZ has learned the house -- a 4-story, 4,631 sq. ft. contemporary beauty with 4 beds and 6 baths -- was taken off the market at the beginning of the year ... but was relisted for sale Thursday at $7,495,000.

Mel and Stephen originally put the pad on the market for $8.995 million just over a year ago, in the heat of their bitter divorce proceedings. A few weeks later they dropped it by a mil, but couldn't find a buyer. 

We broke the story ... Belafonte claimed in December Mel B was making it extremely difficult for him to sell the house because she wouldn't let him inside to make repairs and stage it for a sale.

Now they're giving it another shot with the new $500k discount.

FYI ... celeb realtors Josh and Matt Altman of The Altman Brothers at Douglas Elliman are the listing agents, along with Ann Dashiell.

EXCLUSIVE

10:20 PM PT -- Roberta's rep tells us ... the singer's still in the hospital, and doctors are still running tests to determine why she fell ill during the Apollo show. The rep adds, Roberta had a stroke in 2016, and doctors want to make sure this episode is not related to the stroke.

As for her symptoms ... we're told she felt extremely dizzy as she was supposed to walk out onstage to receive an award. Due to Roberta's age and the previous stroke ... paramedics were called immediately. "Killing Me Softly" singer Roberta Flack's performance at the Apollo Theater was cut short Friday night as she was taken by ambulance to a hospital ... TMZ has learned.

Roberta was performing a charity concert for the Jazz Foundation of America when she fell ill. FDNY tells us the ambulance arrived around 8:50 PM EST, and she was taken to a hospital in Harlem.

We're told the 81-year-old singer Roberta was able to leave the stage under her own power ... before someone called for the ambulance. FDNY says they were responding to a call for a "sick person."

We've got a call in to her rep for an update on her condition. 

Roberta had enormous hits in the '70s and '80s ... including "Killing Me Softly," "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and "Set the Night to Music."

EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor's lucky UFC star Kevin Lee wasn't in the bus he attacked -- 'cause if he was, K-Lee says he would've gone full Dark Knight on his ass!!

"It would have been totally different -- totally different story," Lee told TMZ Sports. "I would have jumped out like Batman when he threw the dolly through."

Kevin doesn't give a damn Conor was flanked by a full goon squad -- saying all of McGregor's wannabe gangsters would've tasted his hands.  

But, "The Motown Phenom" doesn't want Conor to leave the UFC ... 'cause he wants that "easy money" fight inside the Octagon!

Taylor Swift Man Breaks into Home ... Showers and Sleeps in Her Bed!

4/20/2018 3:15 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift had a real life version of Goldilocks play out in one of her homes, as an intruder got way too comfortable after breaking into the place.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Roger Alvarado allegedly climbed up a ladder, smashed a window with his hand and got into the NYC brownstone early Friday. Once he got in, he took a shower and fell asleep in a bed.

This would be the part where Taylor walks in on him, if this really were Goldilocks ... luckily, she wasn't there. However, a witness spotted Alvarado breaking in and called cops. He was arrested inside the home and charged with stalking, burglary and criminal mischief.  

Taylor just owns the property -- she bought it a few months ago, but we're told she's never lived there.

She's been the target of several scary run-ins lately. Most recently, a man was arrested trying to scale the wall of her Bev Hills mansion, and another showed up at that same mansion with a mask and rubber gloves. Both were arrested.  

Lakers' Julius Randle I Care About My L.A. Future ... Not LeBron's!

4/20/2018 3:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Julius Randle says you can jam it with all the questions about LeBron James on the Lakers ... because there's one Lakers future he's much more interested in ... HIS OWN.

Randle is coming off a career season with the Purple & Gold, but being that he's a restricted free agent, there's no guarantee he'll be back in tinsel town next year.

Might be why, when we got JR out in Beverly Hills and tried to ask about the chances LeBron James or Kawhi Leonard might join the squad next year, Randle couldn't make himself give a damn.

"I got to figure out my situation first."

Makes sense, kinda pointless to recruit LeBron if you're gonna be on Utah, Brooklyn, or Portland ... all places rumored to be landing spots for Randle.

Real question is, what does Julius already know that we don't?
