Chandler Parsons My Playboy Days Are Over, Ladies 'But I Had a Hell of a Run'

4/22/2018 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bad news, groupies -- Chandler Parsons says he's officially "a one-woman man" ... ending a truly epic run for the NBA's #1 stud.

But Chandler ain't gonna deny he was killin' the game earlier in his career, telling TMZ Sports, "I had a hell of a run."

We got Parsons up in the Bev Hills ... and asked him what it felt like to be the league's hottest bro -- having shacked up with celebs like Bella Thorne, Arianny Celeste, Toni Garrn and (maybe) Hailey Baldwin.

You could tell Chandler was down with it, but the Grizzlies star was quick to tell us he's only got love for smokin' hot model GF, Cassie Amato, these days.

Yeah, we know it's easy for any hooper to end up like Tristan Thompson ... but these pics make us wanna believe.

Stay strong, Chan-Dog.

Travis Barker Breastfeeding Area at My Music Fest ... So Punk Rock!

4/22/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Barker doesn't think there should be an age limit for rocking out, so he's throwing what could possibly be the most kid-friendly music festival ever, complete with a breastfeeding area for new moms.

Barker's Back to the Beach Fest is going down next weekend in Huntington State Beach in Southern California. Headliners include 311, Sublime With Rome, as well as the original Fishbone lineup, Barker playing with Goldfinger and loads more.

Kids under 10 get in free, which isn't unusual for music festivals, but BTTB doesn't want to exclude anyone, so they're setting up a special quiet zone for nursing moms.

That's not all ... there will also be a Lil Punk Zone where kids can rock out safely. We're told Barker got the inspiration from taking his own kids on the road everywhere and wanted other families to see what it's like to rock out with their little ones. All those diapers should also keep the porta potty lines down, too.

Justin Bieber Sucks At Soccer ... Says Ex-Team USA Coach

4/22/2018 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Everyone who thinks Justin Bieber's soccer skills are legit have been living a damn lie ... because former USA coach Bruce Arena says the Biebs just ain't got it. 

We got Arena out at LAX and wanted to know what an expert (even though we missed the World Cup, he's an expert) thought about Bieber's prowess on the pitch.

Our guy showed Arena some video -- then asked if he thought Biebs was any good at soccer. Unfortunately for Justin, the old coach kept it 100%, A-1, 24 carat real.

"I don't think that. I think he's better off doing what he's doing."

Don't be mad at us Justin ... we tried to remind Bruce that you're friends with Neymar and asked if you could maybe make the MLS if Neymar helped -- but Arena had a simple answer to that too.

"No."

It's not too late to say you're sorry Bruce ... TO ALL AMERICANS FOR MISSING THE FREAKIN' WORLD CUP!

'The Four' Star Zhavia I Lost The Show ... But, I'll Still Make Millions!!

4/22/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Zhavia Ward is going to be the next big thing -- at least that's what her new record company is banking -- cuz they just signed her to a potentially multi-million dollar deal.

The 17-year-old fan favorite of 'The Four' didn't win FOX's singing competition, but it's all good ... Sony's Columbia Records scooped her up instead.

According to her contract -- obtained by TMZ -- Zhavia gets a $700k advance on her first album ... along with 18% royalties. If the record's a hit as expected, she'll get another $750k for album #2 ... and haul in up to $1.875 mil with royalties.

Zhavia's 3rd and 4th albums guarantee her another $100k raise each ... with the potential to make well over $2 million per album with royalties.

Not too shabby for a teenager who didn't win -- or even finish as the runner-up -- on 'The Four.'

Smush Parker Hey, Lamar Odom ... Let's Ball Out In Europe Together!!

4/22/2018 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom isn't gonna have to make his hoops comeback alone ... 'cause his old teammate Smush Parker wants to reunite and dominate together -- in EUROPE!!

TMZ Sports spoke with Smush about Lamar wanting to play pro ball overseas ... and since Parker has 10 years of experience playing international ball, he says he'd love to work with L.O. to show what it takes.

FYI -- Smush told us last year he wanted to team up with Kobe Bryant and L.O. in Ice Cube's BIG3 league ... but since that ship has now sailed, it's clear he's still holding out hope of ballin' with Lamar once again.

We also spoke with the Queens baller about his new "Smush Parker Elite" training program ... and he explains how Lamar could benefit from using it.

Nev Schulman I'm Going Hollywood ... Thanks To Tyler Perry

4/22/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nev Schulman's life is already becoming a movie thanks to Tyler Perry, who's putting Nev and his entire 'Catfish' crew in his next flick alongside Tiffany Haddish.

We got Nev at LAX on his way back from filming in Atlanta, where he told us he didn't have to work too hard with the way Perry wrote him and his crew into the script.

It's pretty cool ... Haddish plays a woman who calls the 'Catfish' guys up because she thinks her sister is getting duped, so it's like an episode of Nev's show playing out in the flick.

And while the film sounds hilarious, Nev says what went on with Haddish when the cameras weren't rolling was even better since they all got into bed together. So Hollywood.

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.

Lamar Odom I'm Here to Help People ... With My Weed

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.

Avicii Brother in Oman As Family Seeks Answers

4/21/2018 1:00 AM PDT
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

Ex-NBA star Glen "Big Baby" Davis has been officially named a suspect in an assault with a deadly weapon case that left a man seriously injured ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Sources say the victim was hospitalized with multiple broken bones and a broken tooth and he was on a ventilator for a day.  

Davis was previously a "person of interest" in the attack but now we're told investigators have spoken with several witnesses who identified Davis as the aggressor. 

We're told cops will present the case to the District Attorney in the hopes of getting felony charges filed against Davis. 

We've reached out to Davis multiple times for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Ex-Destiny's Child Singer Bey, I'm Down for a Reunion, Too ... Call Me?

4/21/2018 12:50 AM PDT
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.
