French Montana Don't Blame Paris Attacks on Muslims

11/15/2015 7:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

French Montana says the Paris attacks were committed by crazy people who may have happened to be Muslim, but the religion is not to blame.

We got French -- who is Muslim -- leaving Playhouse in Hollywood Saturday night and when we asked him about the attacks, he offered a Muslim greeting, As-salamu alaykum, which translates to "Peace be upon you."

French, who seems a little buzzed, clearly thinks it's unfair to paint with a broad brush.

Ace of Diamonds Strip Club Getting Its Own Reality Show

11/15/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


The Ace of Diamonds LA is about to make stars out the Candy's, Cinnamon's and Passion's of the world, because the notorious strip club is getting its own reality series. 

We're told the program is in the early stages of production and the plan is to show life both on and off the pole for some of America's top strippers. 

If that doesn't sound like ratings gold ... the show will incorporate some of the big name rappers who are regulars at AOD. It will feature the epic Monday night parties where the strip club flies in top strippers from around the country.

Craig Wayans, LJ Smith and Howard Alonzo are executive producing and we're told they're still picking out the cast -- mostly dancers -- so they'll probably take their sweet time.

As of now, no word on what network is interested.

NYC Designer to Puma You Jacked My Logo ... Now Pay Up!

11/15/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1113-les-nyc-puma-LES-CLOTHING-3Athletic clothing giant Puma -- home of Usain Bolt -- is trying to pull a fast one by capitalizing on New York City's hipster movement, but it's using a trademarked logo to do it ... according to a new lawsuit.

Puma recently started putting "LES NYC" -- shorthand for NYC's hipster mecca Lower East Side -- on some of its kicks, according to docs filed by Robert Lopez ... the honcho at LES Clothing Co. 

In his suit, Lopez says his company's been using the initials on hats, shoes, hoodies, and more since 1999. Lopez says he has a trademark, and Puma's gear is confusing fans of his brand. Busta Rhymes and DJ Khaled are among the NY celebs who rock Lopez's line. 

He wants Puma to stop using the logo in the future, destroy any remaining inventory with it, and fork over any profits already made from it.

Laura Govan No Shame In Larsa Pippen's MILF-Butt ... Scottie Loves It

11/15/2015 12:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Laura Govan is taking a stand for the MILFs of America ... saying that people hating on Scottie Pippen's wife Larsa need to fall back ... and embrace the wonder of well-aged butt cakes.

Govan was out in Calabasas when we asked about the daisy dukes that shook up Beverly Hills this week ... the super skimpy jean shorts that Larsa was wearing while out shopping with Kim K ... and her kid.

Laura knows all about MILFtroversy ... she recently got in a little hot water on Instagram over a sexy picture of her cooking in the kitchen ... with her son as the sous chef.

You gotta see Laura hit back at the haters ... with her logic being, as long as Scottie likes what he sees ... Larsa should be all systems go to show the world.

We agree ... don't stop, Larsa.

'Botched' Doc I'll Make You Rich If You Find the Chick Who Screwed Me

11/14/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1113-terry-dubrow-TMZ-01"Botched" star Dr. Terry Dubrow has put out an APB for a woman he says ripped him off ... and if you help him, he'll make you rich.

Dubrow claims he was suckered into loaning a lifestyle management company $1.75 million. He says Jennifer Bell, the owner of the company, promised a hefty return on the loan ... a quarter of a million bucks ... but he only got back $125k so he sued her.

Jennifer went MIA and Dubrow won the case. When she didn't pay the $2 million judgment, he got an order forcing her to come to court and disclose where she kept her money so he could seize it.

Of course, Jennifer never showed and a judge issued a warrant for her arrest. Dubrow decided to incentivize people to help find her so he's offering $25k for anyone with info leading to her capture.

BTW ... Dubrow says his accountant convinced him to make the loan. This dude must be rolling in cash.

11/14/2015 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wanna piss off a Beatle??? Just bring up the NFL ... so says Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh who tells us, Ringo Starr LOVES football ... and won't stop busting his balls about it. 

It turns out, Walsh and the most beloved member of the Beatles (lol) are actually family ... with Joe having married into Ringo's clan back in 2008.

So when we saw Joe leaving Craig's we had to ask him ... what do two brothers-in-law, who happen to be music legends, argue about at the family powwows?

That's when Joe dropped the bombshell ... telling our guy that Ringo ... one of the most famous Brits OF ALL TIME ... loves AMERICAN football, and continuously gives Joe grief about whatever squad he likes.

Score one for 'Murica.

Victoria's Secret Model Ronda Rousey Doesn't Have To Worry About Hits To The Face, But I Do!

11/14/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Being a badass fighter is part of Ronda Rousey's image, so a few hits to the face wouldn't ruin her burgeoning acting career ... so says the Victoria's Secret model who actually throws down in the ring too!

TMZ Sports caught up with Gracie Carvalho at the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York City ... where our photog asked her if Rousey -- who is fighting Saturday night in UFC 193 -- needs to be extra cautious about face shots, since Rousey has an acting career that's just getting started.

Carvalho -- who walked in the "Victoria's Secret Fashion Show" this week and fashions herself a Muay Thai fighter -- said Ronda can handle the punishment, but she can't.

As for the big fight with Holly Holm, Carvalho is picking Ronda ... shocker!

Make sure to check out UFC 193 -- Rousey Vs. Holm -- LIVE on PPV Saturday November 14th.

Deadmau5 vs. Aaron Carter Epic Video Game Battle For Remix Rights

11/14/2015 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1113_aaron_carter_deadmau5_counterstrike-tmzAaron Carter is accepting Deadmau5's challenge to a video game battle royale in an attempt to clear his name for jacking the DJ's beat.

Aaron got called out by fans Thursday for posting a remix of Deadmau5's "The Veldt" and not crediting the man in the mau5head. When Deadmau5 caught wind he joked they'd settle it like "real men" ... 1 on 1 ... in a game of "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive."

Aaron's rep confirms he's accepted the challenge and Joel's even paying for his plane ticket to Canada to make it happen. The tentative match is set for Nov. 23rd or 24th, and they plan on livestreaming the whole thing. 

There's a lot at stake: winner gets remix rights, loser has to clean winner's house, and since Joel is flying Aaron out, it's obvious he's banking on winning.

Gilbert Arenas Sues Ex-Manager for $40 MILLION!

11/13/2015 6:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1113-gilbert-arenas-TMZ-02The man Gilbert Arenas paid to watch over his NBA fortune, ended up helping the former NBA superstar's assistant rob him blind ... according to a massive lawsuit Gilbert just filed. 

Gilbert is gunning for Lester Knispel and Boulevard Management ... the company he says he hired in 2006 to control his cash flow, of which he had plenty. You'll recall, Arenas signed a $111 million contract with the Washington Wizards in 2008.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ Sports ... Gilbert says Boulevard approved millions of dollars worth of wire transfers made by his former assistant John White. Arenas says the transfers -- made between 2007 and 2013 -- moved "large and irregular" amounts of cash from one account to another ... which White controlled.

White was convicted in September for fraud related to those wire transfers -- but in his suit, Arenas says Boulevard should shoulder some blame too, since he was paying them to monitor his money. 

Arenas also says Boulevard grossly overcharged him -- $2.25 million -- for services rendered.   

Boulevard's a big deal in Hollywood ... it's also repped Shaq, the Kardashians, Rod Stewart, the Eagles, Barbra Streisand and Russell Brand.

Gilbert's not impressed. He wants at least $40 million in damages. We've reached out to Boulevard Management, but no word back yet.

Nicki Minaj Got $236k for 34 Minute Club Appearance ... Lawsuit Claims

11/13/2015 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1113-nicki-minaj-gettyShe was late .... for a very important date -- so claims a Vegas nightclub which is suing for a refund on the $236,000 it paid Nicki Minaj after she allegedly botched a club appearance after the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight. 

According to the lawsuit, Nicki was booked to appear at Chateau Nightclub in the Paris hotel at 12:00 AM sharp after the May 2nd fight ... stay for an hour ... and perform 2 songs. 

Problem is ... people behind the event claim Minaj didn't show up until 1:19 AM and only stayed for 34 minutes. They're pissed -- because they allegedly pre-paid Nicki's people.

The party people say the clubgoers were equally pissed -- and it affected their ability to sell VIP tables at the club that night, which were expected to fetch in excess of $25,000 each.

Nicki isn't named a defendant in the lawsuit -- but her booking company is, Pink Personality, LLC.

We reached out to Nicki's camp for comment --  so far, no word back. 

Selena Gomez Selling Calabasas Mansion After Numerous 911 Calls

11/13/2015 2:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1113-selena-gomez-house-mls-tmz-01Selena Gomez is selling her Calabasas mansion after owning it for just 1 1/2 years ... a mansion that had its share of drama.

Gomez purchased the 7,700 square foot estate for $3.7 million ... and just days after moving, a stalker showed up. He showed up again a few days later and was arrested. After that, Selena called 911 on 3 separate occasions, fearing an intruder.

It's the second home Selena bought that was targeted by stalkers. It's surprising her current home is not tucked away in a gated community. It's a safe bet her next purchase will be in a more secure location.

It does make sense to sell now ... Selena will be on tour for most of 2016.

She's listed the house for $4.5 million.


50 Cent It Ain't Cheap To Get This Jacked

11/13/2015 1:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1113-50-cent-underwear-01Now we know how 50 Cent keeps his body so swoll -- he drops a fortune to keep a trainer by his side nearly 24/7.

In fact, according to docs filed in his bankruptcy case obtained by TMZ ... the rapper pays more than $3k a month in workout expenses. A big chunk of that -- $2,800 to be exact, goes to his trainer, Jay Cardiello.

Jay has talked about working with 50 before, saying he pretty much eats, sleeps and breathes with 50 ... since they train together 3 times everyday.

And get this, despite the fact 50 hasn't had a #1 hit on Billboard's Hot 100 since 2003 ... he still makes $36k per month in royalties.
