Blac Chyna

Hey Kylie, Watch and Learn

3/30/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner may have had the last word in her watch-off with Blac Chyna, but Ms. Chyna is letting her arm do the talking.

You'll recall ... the 2 girls played the game, "Tyga loves me more" last week when Blac Chyna posted a pic of an expensive watch Tyga had given her back in the day, and then Kylie posted her watch -- almost identical to Blac Chyna's -- with the word, "Currently."

We got Blac Chyna cruising out of the Montage in Bev Hills Sunday night, and while she said nothing about the watch, she actually said a lot.

I Was Making Bank!

EXCLUSIVE

Red Band Society Actress SalaryAnorexia pays ... at least in Hollywood -- where "Red Band Society" star Ciara Bravo raked in more than $250k for her role on the FOX series ... TMZ has learned. 

Caira -- who starred as an anorexic patient in the teen medical dramedy -- was 17 when she took the gig ... so she had to file a minor's contract with the court system. 

According to the docs, Bravo raked in $20k-per-episode ... and the series ran 13 eps ... which according to our calculator app adds up to $260,000. 

Not bad for a show hardly anyone watched.

Vanilla Ice

He Can Now Buy the House

He Allegedly Looted ... Legally

3/30/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327_vanilla_ice_home_launchVanilla Ice can try to unscramble the proverbial egg by buying the house he allegedly burglarized, because it's on the market.

You'll recall ... Ice was arrested for felony grand theft after allegedly looting the joint and taking furniture, a pool heater, bicycles and other stuff. Ice told cops he thought the stuff was fair game because it was on the curb.  

The stuff was returned, and now the owner has put the Lantana, FL house on the market for $1.6 mil. 

Here's the rub. You can't rob a bank, return the money and just call it a day. Ice is expected to be formally charged with the crimes next month.

TMZ broke the story ...Mariah and Brett are in full-blown couple mode, sailing around the Bahamas on a mega-yacht owned by one of Brett's billionaire friends.

It's interesting ... these 2 have been friends for a number of years and worked together on Mariah's music videos as well.  But it's clearly turned into a lot more.

Nice to see her happy. 

Cuba Gooding Jr.

Visits Pacquiao Training Camp

... Dude Looks Fast!

3/29/2015 12:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Another celebrity guest at the Manny Pacquaio training camp ... this time Cuba Gooding Jr. spent some time with the challenger ... but says the whole thing is going down TEN YEARS too late!

CG2 was out in L.A. -- and even though he praised Manny ... saying the guy looks quick as ever ... you can tell Cuba's irritated that the fight of the century is happening a DECADE after it should have.

Check out the clip -- Cuba also thinks the guys might have a secret agreement to make sure the fight goes the distance ... because there could be KILLER consequences if the $200 million match ends in round 1.

French Montana

Cruisin' and Boozin'

In Miami Beach

3/29/2015 11:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0329-french-montana-drinking-and-boating-SPLASH-INF-02French Montana may have violated the laws of the Sea-Doo Saturday ... because it sure looks like he's drinking on the watercraft.

French was traversing the area around Diddy's house, drinking from a Ciroc vodka bottle and looking like a spokesmodel. The photog who shot the pics says the Sea-Doo is owned by Diddy, who BTW also owns Ciroc.

Of course it's possible he's doing something promotional for the vodka and it's actually water, but that would seem like the worst promotion ever -- drinking while boating.

He's steering with one hand as he takes swigs.

And check this out. Khloe just posted a photo on top of Diddy's roof, showing them partying with French -- vodka in hand -- with the caption, "The Ciroc made us do it!!#stepIntoTheCircle."

We've called French Montana's rep ... so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

She may be from Florida, but "Twilight" star Ashley Greene tells TMZ Sports she's pulling for the Badgers in the Final Four ... and she's got UPSET on her mind.

Greene explained why she's a fan of Wisconsin at LAX over the weekend -- and when we pointed out that Vegas odds show a UW upset over Kentucky is unlikely, she had the perfect response:

"Isn't that the fun in all of this when they do?"

FYI -- Kentucky is currently a 6 point favorite when they face off on April 4th. Stay tuned!

Mariah Carey, Brett Ratner

On the LOVE BOAT!!!

3/29/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0328-main-mariah-carey-tmz-wm-01Mariah Carey and Brett Ratner have pulled a Swift/Harris ... they are full-throttle together.

This pic was taken Saturday on a yacht in St. Barts. Sources -- let's just say close to the boat -- say they're all over each other. She's totally into him and he is nuts for her.

Ratner recently said he and Mariah were just really good friends, calling rumors of romance "ridiculous." Well now that's just ridiculous, because they're in full romance mode. We're told she's over Nick and moved on.

Ratner has directed a bunch of films, including "Rush Hour" and "X Men: The Last Stand." He also directed music videos, including Mariah's "Obsessed," and "Touch My Body." 

It's very age appropriate -- they're exactly one year apart. Her birthday was Saturday and his Friday. 

By the way ... the boat is owned by one of Brett's billionaire friends and it's REALLY nice.

Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa

We're Burying the Hatchet

For the Sake of Our Kid

EXCLUSIVE

Amber Rose Wiz Khalifa RelationshipAmber Rose and Wiz Khalifa have called a truce in their custody war ... and they've agreed to co-parent their son ... TMZ has learned. 

You'll recall Amber and Wiz were at each other's throats, each calling the other a horrible parent and unfit to care for their 2-year-old son Sebastian.

But a song changed Amber's tune. She heard Wiz's new song, "See You Again," which appears on the "Furious 7" soundtrack. We're told here's what got to her:

How could we not talk about family when family's all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

Our sources say Wiz asked Amber to listen to the song, and after she heard it she tearfully called him back and they agreed to work as parents to care for Sebastian.

Baby steps.

Tyler Perry Star's Divorce

Ditching My Scrub of a Husband

Is Costing Me a Fortune

3/29/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0323-tasha-smith-keith-douglas-tmz

Actress Tasha Smith will think twice about getting hitched again -- the now ex-husband she calls a glorified assistant just scored a fat settlement in their divorce.  

According to the court docs ... the "Why Did I Get Married?" star has been ordered to hand over nearly $7k/month in spousal support to Keith Douglas. That's on top of the $50k she already shelled out to him in December.

As we previously reported ... their rocky marriage took some crazy twists, including mutual restraining orders, and both saying they feared for their lives.

The settlement wasn't a total loss for Tasha ... Keith had to give back her Mercedes.  

Unfortunately her friends all drive Porsches, but she'll make amends.

I Found America's Next Top Model

EXCLUSIVE

Joe Haden must know a good smize when he sees it ... 'cause the NFL superstar is so sure he's found  "America's Next Top Model" he's leading a social media campaign to get that man on the show.

Haden, along with fellow pigskin pros Carlos Dunlap and Jason Pierre-Paul have taken to Instagram in support of a Miami model named  "Prince" who's trying to score a spot on ANTM's upcoming Season 22.

The three men -- who have over 450k IG followers between them -- each recently posted modeling shots of Prince to their pages along with messages encouraging casting directors to put him on.

We spoke to Prince -- who knows Haden and the other players from partying in Miami -- and he tells TMZ Sports their efforts have sparked some legit interest in him that might otherwise have been hard to come by.

"All those casting directors saw it and it opened the door to conversations with them."

Prince -- who made a mystery trip to L.A. this past weekend -- couldn't tell us whether or not he's made the show yet (sworn to secrecy) but says the NFL love definitely put him on the map.

"1,000% it's helped ... i got tons of new followers because of [the players] and in this business, it's all about exposure."

Better start perfecting that walk young man.

R. Kelly Sued

I Believe He Can Pay

For Backing Out Of Show

3/29/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327-r-kelly-tmz-01R. Kelly pissed off a concert promoter by pulling out of an upcoming show, and stiffing the guy on his hefty deposit ... this according to the promoter who just hit Kelly with a Texas-sized lawsuit.

Darryl Austin says he hand delivered a $100k deposit to Kelly's team in January for him to headline an April concert in Dallas. According to the docs ... when February rolled around R. Kelly's rep played dumb and claimed to know nothing about the show.

Austin says the real insult came when the self-proclaimed Pied Piper of R&B returned the deposit ... $30,000 SHORT!! 

Austin wants the court to either force Kelly to do the show ... or pay back the dough.

Fatburger To Mayweather

Don't Leave Us Champ!

(We Made A Skinny Burger For You!)

3/29/2015 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0326-floyd-mayweather-fatburger-MAIN-TMZ-01Floyd Mayweather can now eat guilt-free at his favorite guilty pleasure ... 'cause a Las Vegas Fatburger just concocted a brand new training-friendly organic burger ... just for the champ.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Floyd is so serious about beating Pacquiao on May 2 that he's adopted an all-organic diet during training ... courtesy of a $1,000-a-plate chef.

We spoke to the chef, who told us the real bummer of the new diet was saying goodbye to the 3 AM Fatburger visits that Floyd lives and dies for.  

Well, it turns out Fatburger isn't about to take losing the (big tipping) champ lying down ... wielding their culinary wizardry to create an all-organic beef experience that Mayweather can scarf while he trains.  

Darin Feinstein owns the Vegas Fatburger Floyd chomps at and he tells us he was so serious about the burger that he outsourced the creation of it to his other restaurant, the totally organic El Dorado Cantina

"The meat is from the Sunfed ranch, highest quality beef. The lettuce, tomato, onion, relish, even the special sauce is all organic." 

Feinstein says all it takes is one call from Floyd and the burger can be made at El Dorado and delivered to Fatburger so Money can pick it up and grub. 

Meantime, Pacquiao's eating chocolate ...
