Ariana Grande

Big Sean's 'Billion Dollar P***y' Lyric

The Final Straw

4/24/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande Big Sean Broke Up Ariana Grande has a big problem with boyfriends screaming from the mountaintops that she has a priceless p***y ... which is why she says she called it quits with Big Sean.

Sources connected with Ariana tell us ... the last straw was when Sean dropped his track, "Stay Down," in which he raps:

I ain't even gonna lie, I got a million dollar chick
With a billion dollar p****y
Every time I c*m, I swear to God I feel like I be rich

We're told Ariana felt humiliated because Sean was treating her like a piece of meat. Ariana's grandmother came to her and asked about the lyrics, which was especially embarrassing.

But there was plenty of tension leading up to the song. Sean claims she made him pay for all sorts of extravagances. But our Ariana sources say SHE is the one who foot most of the bills, including vacations and private flights.

As we reported, Sean complained that Ariana didn't show up for his big House of Blues performance in February because she selfishly cared more about her Grammy's performance the following day.  

But our Ariana sources say it was Sean who was self-absorbed. Ariana's Grammy performance was live and during the day on Saturday when she rehearsed her voice was strained and her vocal coach ordered her not to even speak for the rest of the day, and Sean got pissed.

As for Sean saying Ariana set up the Bieber stage grab to humiliate her, Ariana says it's total B.S. ... they were already broken up and she did NOT ask Bieber to engage in a stunt.  And she says Sean never even brought it up.

Joe Manganiello

Dumps Ballin' Bachelor Pad

Moving in with Sofia?

4/24/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Joe Manganiello HomeSofia Vergara's fiance, Joe Manganiello, may be ready to have his chick, her infamous eggs and himself all under one roof ... because he's unloading his awesome Sunset Strip pad.

Our real estate sources say Joe moved out to sell his swank 2,500 sq. ft. 4bed/3bath digs. Asking price ... a cool $2 mil, but the big question is whether he's bailing on his oasis -- hot tub and pool included -- to say hola to a place with his woman.

He snagged it for $1.8 MIL back in 2013 ... so it's not like he's gonna make a ton o' cash off the sale. Plus, no one would be shocked if he was in a rush to get in more Sofia time.

But she better have a hot tub.

4/23/2015 3:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has learned ... McGee snatched up Anthony's 6,262 square foot party palace in Encino, CA -- a super private, Spanish-style estate -- for $2.25 million. 

The place is perfect for summer bashes -- with a cool bar set up in the backyard, next to a huge pool ... with a cabana, fire pit and it's own private guest suite. 

In total -- 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, with a wine room, state of the art theater ... and super high ceiling ... perfect for its new 7-foot owner.

As for McGee, he's unemployed at the moment -- but the 27-year-old has made more than $30 MILLION during his NBA career.

Big Sean

Ariana Used Bieber

As a Weapon to Hurt Me

4/23/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0422-big-sean-ariana-grande-TMZ-01Ariana Grande lashed out at Big Sean almost immediately after their breakup by staging Justin Bieber's come-from-behind stage embrace ... so claim sources close to the couple.

Sources closely connected with them tell TMZ ... Sean claims it was him who broke off the relationship because she was "immature."

Sources say the downfall of their relationship started in February, when he made the most important appearance of his career at the House of Blues in West Hollywood. Everyone showed -- Kanye, Bieber, JLo, Chris Brown, Jay Z, A$AP Rocky, Tyga, Kylie and Kendall -- everyone EXCEPT ARIANA. We're told she needed to get ready for the Grammy's the next day, which he found extremely selfish.

0422-big-sean-pre-grammy-celebrities-INSTAGRAM-02Sean also traveled to see her "10 times more" than she went to see him. He claimed once she demanded that he blow tens of thousands of dollars to take a private jet to see her. Sean, who grew up poor, felt she was a spendthrift ... a sign of immaturity.

But the crowning blow was just after the breakup. They were still talking and the door was slightly open for a reconciliation, when Bieber jumped onstage in L.A. and grabbed Ariana from behind. Even though Ariana pushed Biebs away, Sean believes it was all calculated -- NOT by Bieber but Ariana -- to hurt him.

Odin Lloyd's Mom

Re-Files Wrongful Death Suit

Against Hernandez AND Patriots

4/22/2015 7:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0415-aaron-hernandez-court-02

Odin Lloyd's mother is moving forward with a wrongful death lawsuit against Aaron Hernandez AND the New England Patriots ... hoping to collect on the MILLIONS she claims the team was supposed to pay the former tight end. 

Ursula Ward has re-filed docs in state court in Massachusetts that she originally filed back in 2013 ... claiming Hernandez should be held financially liable for the wrongful death of her son.  

Of course, Hernandez was convicted of Lloyd's murder -- so, Ward has a pretty solid case against Aaron. 

But in the suit, Ward also names the New England Patriots as "reach and apply defendants" -- meaning that if she wins ... she wants to be able to collect her judgment from the Pats. 

Now, this is important because Ward claims that Hernandez has a right to collect $3.25 million of a signing bonus that she claims was due back in March 2014. 

Ward does not specify how much she's demanding from Hernandez. 

Aaron Hernandez

Victim's Mom Mulling Lawsuit

... Over Son's Murder

4/22/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0421-ursula-lloyd-GETTY-01Odin Lloyd's mother tells TMZ Sports ... she's still deciding whether or not she will file a wrongful death lawsuit against Aaron Hernandez ... a lawsuit that could potentially be worth MILLIONS of dollars.

With Hernandez having been convicted of murdering the former semi-pro football player, the odds are extremely good that Lloyd's family would win a civil case against him. 

And since Hernandez was an NFL star who made MILLIONS during his brief career ... there's real money on the line. 

But when we spoke with Ursula Ward this week, she told us she had not made up her mind about whether she will go through with the lawsuit. 

Ward wouldn't explain why she's on the fence -- but sometimes, grieving families would rather move on with their lives instead of reliving the nightmare in another high profile case ... no matter how much money is at stake. 

Nick Loeb

Sofia Should Not Deny Life

To Our 2 Daughters

4/21/2015 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421-nick-loeb-sofia-vergara

Nick Loeb says there are 2 unborn girls he wants to father ... and he's not asking the mother, Sofia Vergara, for anything other than cooperation in allowing them to be born. 

Loeb's lawyer says, "Nick is not seeking to impose any parental obligations on the egg donor, financial or otherwise, and believes that the sanctity of life, his interest in achieving parenthood, and his desire to bring his daughters to term outweighs any interest the egg donor may have in destroying the embryos."

As TMZ reported, Nick is suing Sofia, claiming she wants to destroy the embryos now that she's moved on. Sofia says she will not destroy the embryos, but as we reported she refuses to allow them to come to term. We're told Sofia does not want to stir up a hornet's nest with her right-to-life fan base.

Nick's lawyer goes on ... "I created these two female embryos with the purpose of taking them to term and not destruction, because I have always dreamed of being a father."

He says he wants no money from Sofia ... Nick is loaded. He adds he's willing to give her an opportunity to be involved in the children's lives.

And the lawyer ends with this ... "Where a man does want to become a father, and wants to impose no obligations on the other party, he should have that corresponding right."  

Big Sean & Ariana Grande Split

Sorry Biebs ...

Nothin' To Do With You

4/20/2015 1:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Big Sean Ariana Grande Break UpJustin Bieber is no homewrecker ... at least in this case ... because TMZ has learned that Big Sean and Ariana Grande's split has nothing to do with his mid-concert groping.

Sean and Ariana are history after 8-months of banging, and sources close to the couple say it had nothing to do with Sean's real/fake Twitter outburst after Biebs laid hands on his woman during her show a few weeks back.

We're told the breakup was mutual because they're both constantly touring and just think it's better this way -- but they're staying tight as friends. 

Now Biebs can REALLY make a move ... Kendall Jenner probably won't mind.

Sofia Vergara

I'm Not Having Nick's Baby

But I'm Not Destroying the Embryo

4/18/2015 7:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0418-sofia-vegara-nick-loeb-tmz-01Sofia Vergara had to make a tricky decision ... there's a fertilized egg sitting around that could produce a baby she doesn't want, but she doesn't want to anger  the "right to life" people by destroying it.

As TMZ reported, Sofia and then fiance Nick Loeb planned on having a baby together, which resulted in a fertilized egg being stored at a Beverly Hills reproductive facility.  Nick has filed a lawsuit, saying Sophia wants to destroy the embryo, but he wants the kid.

Sofia's lawyer told People, "Vergara has never suggested that she wished to have the embryos destroyed," adding, "She has always maintained that they be kept frozen."

It seems strange on the surface.  If she doesn't want the baby, why not destroy the embryo?

Sources close to Sofia tell TMZ, there is no way this baby will be born.  Sofia wants nothing to do with Nick and is about to marry Joe Manganiello.  The problem ... she doesn't want to piss off a lot of her fan base, which believes life is created at conception.

So we're told Sofia's solution is right in the contract, which says both parties have to agree to have the baby, and both sides have to agree to destroy the embryo.  She will agree to neither, which means the baby will not be born.

Selena Gomez

I'm Making Hits, Not Hit-Boy

In Mexico

4/18/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0417-SUB-selena-gomez-mexico-INSTAGRAM-01

Selena Gomez's trip south of the border is strictly professional, meaning she's not banging Hit-Boy.

Selena caused quite the stir in that ugly bikini earlier this week, but less prominent was the famed producer who was by her side. Stories started surfacing that they were dating.

Our Selena sources say not true. They're recording an album at the home of Joe Francis, Casa Aramara, in Punta Mita.

Turns out Kanye and Kim went to Joe's house last year and he build a sick recording studio on the compound. Hit-Boy -- who's produced hits for Kanye, Jay Z, Chris Brown, Snoop, Bieber and many others -- heard the studio was gold and that's why he chose it for Selena.

There are extra perks ... an awesome beach, and even a sea lion that swims in Joe's pool.

BTW -- black bathing suit MUCH hotter.

Selena Gomez

Swimsuit Upgrade

It's All About the Fit!

4/17/2015 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0417-selena-gomez-splashSelena Gomez ditched her ill-fitting pink bikini for a smoking hot black number as she partied again Thursday in the water while on vacation in Mexico.

Gomez took some flak for the previous day's photos -- haters said she looked like she put on a few pounds -- but swimsuit experts (in our newsroom) say this black one just fits her new body type WAY better than the pink one. 

Selena responded to the criticism on Instagram -- borrowing a page from the Cindy Crawford "post a hot pic after a bad one comes out" playbook -- saying she's happy with her body.

Based on the pics she's posting ... she's also very happy chillin' at Casa Aramara -- Joe Francis' estate outside Puerto Vallarta.

Aaron Hernandez

On Suicide Watch

... After Murder Conviction

4/16/2015 3:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0415-aaron-hernandez-court-03

Aaron Hernandez has been placed on suicide watch at the prison where he is temporarily being held ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

After Hernandez was convicted of murdering Odin Lloyd, he was transported to MCI Cedar Junction in Massachusetts ... where he will stay until he is transferred to his permanent prison. 

We're told he has been isolated from the general inmate population -- not only for his own protection (since he's a high profile inmate), but so officials can evaluate him ... and determine where he will stay at the prison. 

As far as the suicide watch goes, we're told it's not that uncommon for someone who just got sentenced to life behind bars. Unclear how long Aaron will stay on suicide watch.

Selena Gomez

Body Banging, Bikini Clinging

... Pinky Swear

4/16/2015 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0415-selena-gomez-akmgsiSelena Gomez didn't pull any strings in Puerto Vallarta ... dammit. 

Biebs' former squeeze was showing off the goods during her Mexican vacay ... sporting a double-stringed bikini bottom thingy (we know fashion).

There's not a ton of material to her ensemble, but what there is -- is definitely working overtime to cover the 22-year-old's assets. Things are getting thick down in Mexico.

It's high-season for tourism.
