Lady Gaga

I Have an Inflated View of Myself

11/25/2014 9:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lady Gaga Inflatable DressLady Gaga blew up in Paris Monday night.

Gaga finished up the last show of her world tour, then headed out to VIP in the City of Light, and on her way in she pulled the ripcord on whatever that is she's wearing ... and it blossomed into something James Bond's Octopussy would be proud to wear.

So how many people got poked in the eye?

Soccer Star James Rodriguez

Declares Underwear War

On Cristiano Ronaldo

11/25/2014 7:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

_1125_james_rodriquez_underwear_launchFirst Beckham, then Ronaldo ... now ANOTHER soccer star is getting into the men's underwear game - James Rodriguez.

The Colombian superstar who plays for Real Madrid stripped down to his man panties to model his new line of undies, J10 ... made by a Colombian underwear company Bronzini. 

Seems to be a total ripoff of Cristiano Ronaldo's undie-brand CR7 ... which started as an underwear line and was so successful, it's already expanded into socks and shirts. 

BTW, James and Ronaldo both play for the same team -- so, it's kinda like the Oklahoma City Thunder situation ... where teammates Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook also have competing underwear lines. 

Underwear war is hell.

Carmen Electra

My Stylist Went on $100K Shopping Spree ...

For HERSELF!

EXCLUSIVE

Carmen Electra Stylist
Carmen Electra says her ex-stylist had plenty of style -- but zero class -- after the woman used Electra's credit cards to buy herself more than $100K worth of new clothes and accessories.

Electra says she hired Shayoon Aboo as her personal stylist in April 2013 ... giving her credit cards to shop for clothes, shoes and bags to fit Electra's image. But according to a lawsuit Carmen just filed ... Aboo secretly kept some items which should have been returned after Carmen rejected them.

In the suit, Carmen also says Aboo used the credit cards to buy clothing for herself, and had the audacity to flaunt her purchases on Instagram.

Electra claims she discovered the rip-off when she saw discrepancies in her credit card statements ... and demanded Aboo return, or pay for the clothing.  

Electra's attorney, Neama Rahmani tells TMZ Aboo tried to take advantage of a friendship ... and now Carmen is looking for justice. And some pricey outfits. 

We've reached out to Aboo, but no word back yet.

Miley Cyrus

It's My Party ...

I Can Dress Crazy If I Want To!

11/23/2014 7:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112314_miley_cyrus_launchLooks like Miley Cyrus' attempt to mature her fashion style and possibly even morph into a Kennedy was short lived ... because Saturday night in Hollywood she returned to her OG.

Miley hit up Penthouse for her 22nd birthday celebration with her new man squeeze Patrick Schwarzenegger in tow.

You may recall ... Miley went pretty conservative this week, especially when they went on a romantic date -- it seemed MC might be switching up her style for Patrick.

Girls just wanna have fun.

The Dr. Frankenstein behind the bling is Ofer -- Ceo of NuO jewelry in L.A. He tells us DeSean wanted a Cuban link chain ... which is back in style these days thanks to stars like Jay Z and Usher

He ordered one in pure gold, but when he got it back ... DJ decided it wasn't quite swaggy enough so he put in another work order with Ofer that involved more ice than the North Pole.

Ofer tells us Desean's customizations pushed the value of the chain to $75,000. Easily one of his most expensive pieces ever. 

Treat. Yo. Self. 

* -- salaries according to various job websites. If you make more, sorry. If you make less, sorry.

Doors open on Black Friday -- and David says Joe will definitely be on hand to celebrate ... even though the Browns have a game in Atlanta that weekend.

"They don't fly out until Saturday, so Joe will definitely be there. There will be a bunch of athletes there."

No word if Haden will be selling anything from his personal collection -- which is stocked with some of the most sought-after sneakers ever made ... including Air Yeezys, South Beach LeBrons, Corks, and some ultra-rare Air Jordan VIIs.

Dez Bryant

Poppin' Bottles, Flossin' Jewelry

At Roc Nation Bash

11/17/2014 7:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1117_Dez_Bryant_40_40_Club_launchDallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was officially welcomed to the Roc Nation Sports family this weekend with a huge party at Jay Z's NYC nightclub ... complete with champagne, hot chicks and expensive jewelry. 

It all went down at Jay's 40/40 Club ... where Dez sipped on expensive Ace of Spades champagne and D'USSE Cognac. 

Also, check out Dez's brand new chain -- the Roc Nation Sports logo -- we're guessing a gift from his new agency. 

Of course, Dez fired his old agent and signed with Jay's group earlier this month -- and clearly, he's fired up about it.

Dez becomes a free agent after this season -- which means it's time to see if Jay can get him a 9-figure contract to match that necklace.

Jay Z

Front and Center At

Solange's Wedding White Party

11/16/2014 12:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


1116-SUB-jay-z-solange-wedding-white-INF-01
Jay Z showed up to Solange's wedding Sunday in New Orleans breaking a cardinal rule ... but in this case there's an exception.

Hova and Beyonce arrived hours before the nuptials and Jay dressed to the nines in a fancy white tux. 

Wearing white to someone else's wedding is normally frowned upon ... the whole upstaging the bride thing. But when you look at the photos it appears the ceremony has an all-white theme.

Or maybe he's just trying to get revenge for the elevator fight.

Nike to NFL Stars:

STOP CUSTOMIZING CLEATS

Or We'll Kill Your Endorsement Deal

11/13/2014 8:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1113-nike-football-contract-doc-launch
Several NFL stars have received letters from Nike -- warning the players to stop customizing their cleats ... or else Nike will KILL their endorsement deals ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Cleat customization is all the rage in the NFL right now -- with big stars like Marshawn Lynch, DeSean Jackson, Terrell Suggs, Reggie Bush and more taking their shoes to famous artists to swag out before games. 

But after Nike got word of the customizing fad, they sent out letters to players reminding them that the point of the deal is make sure the Nike Swoosh is visible on TV during games ... and customization could get in the way. 

1113-nike-nc-shoes-nike-01The letter reads, "Your Nike Football Contract requires that you wear 'Nike' products that have been designated by Nike Sports Marketing for such use."

"Nike views third-party customization (or post-embellishment) of Nike footwear to be a violation of the contract, triggering Nike's right to immediately terminate the contract."

The company continues ... "Nike Football values its endorsement relationship with you and presumes you were unfamiliar with these previsions in your Nike Football Contract." 

"However, please know that Nike expects that you will observe the requirements of our contracts."

We reached out to Nike for comment -- so far, no word back.  

Ariel Winter

Teenage Millionaire

Who Spends Like a Teenager

11/11/2014 11:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ariel Winter MoneyAriel Winter pulls in way more money than your average 16-year-old girl, but she eats just like a normal teenager. 

Winter's guardianship requires her sister to file a list of Ariel's expenses.

In the docs, we get a glimpse into Winter's 2013 eating habits ... which are shockingly typical.

-- 8 trips to In-N-Out 
-- 6 trips to Subway
-- 17 trips to Starbucks and Coffee Bean
-- 12 orders from GrubHub (food deliver website)

But then, as a reminder that she's actually not that average, Ariel lists her shopping sprees, which include:

-- $8,938 at Chanel
-- $1,253 in one visit to Victoria's Secret
-- $1,570 at Christian Louboutin

It's not like she can't afford it -- the docs say Winter made about $1.5 million in the last 18 months. 

Greatest allowance ever.

Adrian Peterson

FIRED by Nike

11/6/2014 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

1106-adrian-peterson-nike-tmz-01Nike will no longer pay Adrian Peterson to "just do it" -- the company has fired him on the heels of the plea deal in his child abuse case. 

Nike had suspended its contract with Peterson in September, right after he was arrested for hitting his son with a switch -- but today the company fully cut ties with the Vikings running back.

Nike has not said why it finally decided to 86 him altogether -- but it comes just 2 days after he entered a no contest plea to one count of misdemeanor reckless assault. So, it certainly seems tied to the conviction. 

Still no word on when Peterson will be removed from the NFL's exempt list and allowed to suit up again.
