EXCLUSIVE

The Game has a message for LeBron James ... GET ON THE LONZO BALL BANDWAGON!!!

Seriously, Game tells TMZ Sports the Lakers rookie will bring a 'chip to L.A. in ONE SEASON -- and advises LeBron James to come to join the Purple and Gold squad so he can be a part of the magic.

LaVar Ball (and Grandpa Ball) is LOVIN' this clip. 

Beyonce, JAY-Z Still Dealing with Twins' Premature Birth

6/26/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce gave birth 2 weeks ago Monday, but she and Jay-Z are still dealing with premature birth issues ... sources connected to the family tell TMZ.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, as of 4 days ago the infants were still in the hospital. As we reported, they are "under the lights" ... which typically means they have jaundice, the result of elevated bilirubin issues. The lights lower bilirubin in the blood to eliminate the jaundice.

We're told none of the medical problems should pose serious long-term issues ... nonetheless, we're told doctors did not want the babies released until they were stabilized.

As we reported ... Beyonce had a boy and a girl.

The release date is unclear.

Kanye West Bros Down at Khloe's Birthday Bash

6/26/2017 6:44 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West was super pumped after the BET Awards Sunday, holding court outside a WeHo club.

Kanye joined the Kardashian klan to celebrate Khloe's 33rd birthday at the Blind Dragon. Tristan Thompson and Khloe arrived together to the club.

Before joining the group inside, Kanye chatted up one of his friends on the phone, and then met up with some guys on the street.

He was oblivious to the the paparazzi ... if anything, they were clowning the photogs.

A good night was had by all.

MLB's Brian Wilson: The Beard Is Dead ... Probably

6/26/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

R.I.P. Brian Wilson's luscious, strong, beautiful beard ... 'cause the MLB pitcher says his face-warmer is officially gone forever.

Probably. 

The ex-SF Giants/Dodgers fireballer was lookin' all jacked in L.A. this week -- sippin' on a blender full of  a healthy-lookin' drink -- when we noticed his face was much more bare than we were used to. 

FYI, Wilson's reportedly attempting an MLB comeback as a knuckleballer. 

And by the look of his stubble, the beard is also trying to make a comeback. 

Fingers crossed for both.

Bill Cosby Prison or Not ... I've Got Fat Albert Money to Make!!!

6/26/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bill Cosby could still find himself locked up for the rest of his life ... but that's not going to stop him from making bank on the show that helped his rise to fame.

The comedian and creator of "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids" filed paperwork in May -- about a month before his sexual assault trial began -- to renew the rights to the title of his animated series ... and the terms "Fat Albert" and "Hey hey hey" specifically.

Cosby wants to churn out t-shirts and DVDs featuring the cartoon ... whether he's a free man or not. Prosecutors vowed to retry him.

This also might explain why Cosby -- to the dismay of many -- shouted Fat Albert's catchphrase as he was leaving the courthouse during his trial. It was just marketing.

DeMario Jackson Wants to Hash it Out with Corinne ... But the Ball's in Her Court

6/26/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DeMario Jackson is looking for answers, and thinks a 1-on-1 with Corinne Olympios could help him finally get some peace of mind ... but she's gotta make the first move.

Sources close to the "Bachelor in Paradise" outcast tell TMZ ... he wants to chat with Corinne about her sexual assault claim. DeMario's telling friends he doesn't hold a grudge -- after being cleared by Warner Bros. -- especially since he's bound to see Corinne again with other 'Bachelor' alums.

We're told DeMario was "blindsided and confused" when he heard she claimed to be a victim, because when they got sent home producers told him it was because a third party had a problem with their pool sexcapade -- not Corinne.

DeMario assumed he and Corinne would move on and be friends since they got along so well the first day filming -- laughing, chatting and hooking up -- so he doesn't understand what changed.

There's a catch -- we're also told DeMario's not going to reach out to Corinne. He feels the ball's in her court since she played the victim card ... but he'll drop everything to meet with her if she calls.

As we reported ... DeMario says he's done with 'BiP' and Corinne is unlikely to return, so their reunion will most likely have to be off camera.

LaVar Ball's Dad LaVar Woulda Destroyed Jordan ... I'm 100% Sure

6/26/2017 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LaVar Ball isn't the only one in the world who thinks he could've beaten Michael Jordan 1-on-1 ... his father agrees ... telling TMZ Sports he's CERTAIN his Big Baller son would've dominated His Airness.

Of course, LaVar's the guy who started this fire (and many others) claiming in his athletic heyday, he'd have beaten Jordan, a statement that sent the sports world into an "Is he crazy?" frenzy.

We ran into one guy who DOESN'T think he's crazy at LAX -- LaVar's dad -- who only had one answer when we asked and he told us he agreed with his son's big brag.

"Yes. When he was younger and he was 6'6'', 270, I would've put him against anybody."

Turns out, the trash talking apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Wynn Hotel Sues DC Club ... Your X is Marking Our Spot!

6/26/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Wynn Hotel's pissed its X is being whored around Washington, DC -- totally disrespecting their 21-year relationship together ... according to the hotel's new lawsuit.

The Wynn -- which owns XS Nightclub at Encore -- is suing XS Nightclub DC for using a similar logo. According to docs, the Wynn says it's had the XS rights since at least 1996 to market its restaurants, bars and nightclubs ... in this case a club at Encore.

The Wynn says the DC club is misleading customers into falsely believing its club is connected to the Vegas resort -- and, despite a warning back in May, it's still using the logo.

By the way, for its grand opening, the DC joint used the exact logo from the Vegas XS.

X's ... can't live with 'em, can't trust 'em not to hook up cross-country.

'L&HH' Star Tammy Rivera More Pub for Safaree, But He Shoulda Swung at Meek's Goons!

6/25/2017 6:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Safaree Samuels shoulda stood his ground against Meek Mill's good squad when they tried jumping him ... according to a fellow "Love & Hip Hop" costar. 

We got Tammy Rivera -- Waka Flaka's lady from 'L&HH: Atlanta' -- as she was heading to the Microsoft Theater in L.A. for the BET Awards ... and she opened up about Safaree getting jumping this weekend

She says the fight will probably work out in Safaree's favor -- as they say, there's no such thing as bad publicity.

As far as how he handled the hands ... welp, Tammy's got some thoughts on that too.

A$AP Rocky Involved in Huge Scuffle At BET Awards Party

6/25/2017 2:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

3:40 PM PT -- Sources at 1 OAK tell TMZ that A$AP Rocky was not targeted in Sunday morning's scuffle ... he simply got sucked in as a result of proximity. We're told a fight erupted at a table near the main stage, and as A$AP was exiting ... the commotion spilled over into his area. We're also told no arrests were made, and no injuries were reported.A$AP Rocky is the latest celeb to deal with a would-be assault that ended in chaos over BET Awards weekend. 

Rocky was attacked early Sunday morning while doing a gig at 1 OAK in L.A., where Kendrick Lamar also headlined and got treated to a birthday shout out. 

Eyewitnesses tell TMZ that A$AP was jumped on by one man after the birthday song, which resulted in a massive scuffle near the main stage ... one that A$AP himself got mixed up in with security trying to break things up.

Law enforcement sources tell us they responded to an incident at 1 OAK around 1:57 AM from a club-goer who said security had struck him. By the time cops showed, the guy was gone ... and security said it was only a verbal exchange. 

As we reported ... this is the 2nd altercation this weekend. Safaree had the misfortune of being jumped, allegedly at the hands of Meek Mill's crew

We've reached out to 1 OAK and Rocky's reps for further comment ... so far, no word back.

Post Malone Stone Cold Inspired a Song And Maybe Even My Wrestling Career

6/25/2017 1:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Post Malone is giving props to Stone Cold Steve Austin for being the inspiration to one of his songs ... and perhaps a shot at getting in the ring himself.

We got Post Sunday outside of the JW Marriott in L.A. and asked if he'd be down to do with Steve what he's doing with A.I. and his song "White Iverson. Sounds like he's all in ... Steve's just gotta make a call.

Then Post starts talking wrestling, and says he'd be down to throw down some suplexes on the mat if the opportunity presented itself. Again ... WWE just needs to pick up the phone.

Wait'll you hear who his coach for that would be ... hint, it ain't Stone Cold. 

Meek Mill Safaree Who? 'I Don't Even Fight'

6/25/2017 10:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill's happy to play the "who" game when it comes to questions about Safaree Samuels ... and he probably ain't squaring up with him anytime soon either.

Paps got Meek Saturday night leaving the District in Bev Hills -- rolling SUPER deep with bodyguards -- where he ducked and dodged questions about Safaree claiming Meek ordered his crew to jump him on Friday.

It's like a Dr. Seuss book here at first, but then Meek gets into Safaree's request for a 1-on-1 fight straight up. As he puts it, he's a "Don" ... and Dons don't fight. Okay, bud. 

'All Eyez On Me' Singleton's Early Script With Tupac Prison Rape Scene

6/25/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"All Eyez On Me" filmmakers and famed director John Singleton are beefing over the version of the movie Singleton wanted to make -- and now we have the script at the center of the feud.  

TMZ obtained several pages from a 2014 draft written by Singleton, and it includes a scene where prison guards lock Tupac in the library, and turn the other way while other inmates assault him. When you read it ... there's a clear insinuation Tupac gets raped.

'Eyez' producer L.T. Hutton referred to this scene while he was on "The Breakfast Club," but fans were hesitant to believe it. For his part, Singleton has trashed 'Eyez,' and refused to see it because he "knows they f**ked it up."

The script, labeled "REVISION EIGHT," also has a scene where Tupac watches his mother, Afeni, having "adult fun" with a man and another woman.

We contacted the film's producers, Morgan Creek, to authenticate the script. Marketing EVP Greg Mielcarz told us it's "one of several versions penned by Mr Singleton while he was working with Morgan Creek.”

Sources connected to Singleton tell us the script was an early draft, but everything he wrote was approved by Tupac's mother. Singleton's said in the past he felt Morgan Creek disrespected Afeni, and that's why he dropped out of the project.
