Beyonce Love Fest for Jay Z ... 'Becky Beef' Squashed??

4/28/2016 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Beyonce's Miami concert must have felt like a roller coaster ride for Jay Z -- one second she was trashing him, and the next she was gushing over him.

Bey closed her Formation world tour kick off with "Halo" and a dedication to her "beautiful husband."

Of course, earlier in the show she performed her new tracks from "Lemonade" ... which included that damned lyric about Becky and her good hair.

Jay was reportedly sitting front and center for the show -- no doubt laughing at the angry Beyhive, counting his their money in his head ... and checking out her ass.

Lindsey Vonn 2nd Date with 'Vikings' Star ... Finally More than Friends?

4/28/2016 6:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0428-lindsey-vonn-alexander-ludwig-GETTY-01Seems Alexander Ludwig is ferociously battling his way out of the friend zone -- 'cause the "Vikings" star was out with Lindsey Vonn AGAIN ... despite the fact she claimed they were "just friends." 

Vonn and Ludwig got some people talkin' earlier this month when they hit up a fancy West Hollywood restaurant together. But days later, Vonn insisted there was nothing romantic about the date. 

Fast forward to Wednesday night ... when the 'Hunger Games' star showed up to the Clippers game at Staples Center -- WITH VONN!! 

0428-lindsey-vonn-alexander-ludwig-GETTY-02So ... did 23-year-old Ludwig finally convince the 31-year-old stunner to give him a shot???

Vonn did sorta leave the door open when she was talking about Ludwig a few weeks ago. 

Good luck ...

Nick Young Odds On Me Marrying Iggy ...

4/27/2016 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nick Young is a betting man who dished out some odds on whether he'll get Iggy Azalea to the altar ... after everything they've been through lately.

The Lakers star was in West Hollywood on Tuesday when a photog straight up asked him the chances of his pending marriage compared to his team's shot at an NBA Championship.

He actually answered! Check out the video, 'cause he also dropped a strong hint about how his other relationship's going. Y'know ... with D'Angelo Russell.

Jay Z I'm Puff Daddy Through All the Becky Buzz

4/27/2016 7:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0427-jay-z-akm-01Jay Z ain't the least bit worried about "Becky" or any alleged affairs ... as long as he can light up a Cuban.

Jay was chilling in Miami, smoking a cigar with a friend on the eve of Beyonce's Formation World Tour kicking off down there.

It's the first time we've seen him since Bey dropped "Lemonade," and while the Beyhive wonders if he cheated -- Jigga looks every bit like a guy who's relaxed and comfortable knowing his wife's bringing in HUGE money. Even if she's airing their dirty laundry to do it.

He'll smoke to that!

Mya on 'Lemonade' I'm Not Becky ... and I NEVER Have Been!

4/26/2016 12:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mya's dodging the Beyhive by declaring she's never been a side chick to Jay Z -- but she's not exactly giving him a vote of confidence on the cheating rumors.

Our photog asked the singer if Beyonce's fans ever came after her the way they've been jumping on Rachel Roy. You'll recall Mya and Jay Z collaborated on "Best of Me (Part 2)" ... and there were rumors back then.

So check out Mya's denial, and especially listen for her closing comment about Jay ... and men in general.

Beyonce's Mom Ashes to Ashes ... Dust to Side Chicks

4/26/2016 7:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0426-tina-lawson-instagram-01Beyonce's mom Tina Lawson is backing up what most people are thinking about her daughter's marriage after listening to "Lemonade." 

The Beyhive thinks the album is all about Beyonce getting over Jay Z's rumored infidelity -- although Bey never outright says that. Now, Tina's toasted the record, saying ... "No matter what you've gone thru in life you can always come out on the other side." 

Put two and two together and it sure sounds like Tina's confirming Beyonce went through something heavy, perhaps a cheating scandal. 

Then again ... mama could just be helping push records. It is the family biz, after all.

Dana White Conor McGregor Is Wrong ... Fight Is Still Off!!!

4/25/2016 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42516-mcgregor-dana-whiteConor McGregor has NOT been added back to the UFC fight card ... this according to UFC honcho Dana White

TMZ Sports spoke to White this morning ... who tells us, "It's not true. We haven't talked to Conor or his manager since the press conference. I don't know why he would tweet that."

He adds, "All the media keeps asking me that. I feel like the scene in 'Step Brothers' when they ask if they can build the bunk beds. I don't know how many more times I can say the fight is off or how many more press conferences I can have saying the fight is off for people to believe it's off."

TRANSLATION -- THE FIGHT IS OFF!!!!

McGregor caused a firestorm Monday morning by tweeting, "Happy to announce that I am BACK on UFC 200! Shout out to @danawhite and @lorenzofertitta on getting this one done for the fans. #Respect"

Conor McGregor I'm Back On at UFC 200 ... UFC Hasn't Confirmed

4/25/2016 5:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0425-conor-mcgregor-tmz-01Conor McGregor says he's BACK on the UFC 200 fight card ... claiming he worked out a deal with UFC honchos Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta ... though UFC has not yet confirmed. 

If true, it would be a shocking development considering White had been so adamant about Conor being OFF the card ... since he refused to show up to Vegas this past weekend for promotional obligations. 

In fact, White told the media the decision to move on from Conor was final. 

Still, McGregor tweeted in the middle of the night ... "Happy to announce that I am BACK on UFC 200! Shout out to @danawhite and @lorenzofertitta on getting this one done for the fans. #Respect"

So far, no word from the UFC -- or White or Fertitta. 

Stay tuned ...

Kelly Ripa Crew Furious Her Boycott Could Cost Us Our Jobs

4/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0421_kelly_ripa_abc

Kelly Ripa is alienating lots of people on 'Live,' because they believe she's jeopardizing their jobs by refusing to work.

Production sources tell us, some members of the crew believe ABC execs are weighing the benefits of either killing the show or moving it to a later hour so they can add a third hour of 'GMA.'

These crew members are grousing, the longer Kelly stays out, the more damage it will do to 'Live' and the greater the chance that they'll be replaced by 'GMA.' If 'Live' goes away, so do they.

That said, we're told the crew generally likes Kelly, but many of them think what they call "her tantrum" is hurting the show.

As we reported, ABC is indeed mulling over the prospect of adding a 3rd 'GMA' hour.

Prince Treated for Drug Overdose Days Before Death

4/21/2016 4:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42116-prince-getty-04Prince was treated for a drug overdose 6 days before his death ... multiple sources tell TMZ.

We broke the story ... Prince's private jet made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois last Friday, hours after he performed in Atlanta. At the time his reps said he was battling the flu ... something we questioned because his plane was only 48 minutes from home before the unscheduled landing.

Multiple sources in Moline tell us, Prince was rushed to a hospital and doctors gave him a "save shot" ... typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.

Our sources further say doctors advised Prince to stay in the hospital for 24 hours. His people demanded a private room, and when they were told that wasn't possible ... Prince and co. decided to bail. The singer was released 3 hours after arriving and flew home. 

We're told when Prince left he "was not doing well."

We know authorities in Minnesota are trying to get the hospital records from Moline to help determine cause of death.

We have made more than a dozen attempts to reach Prince's reps for comment, but they went radio silent.

Iggy Azalea I Told Nick Vegas Was Bad Idea ...

4/22/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Iggy Azalea says she tried to warn Nick Young that his boys trip to Vegas last weekend would "look bad" in the wake of the whole cheating scandal ... but he went anyway -- and she's cool with it. 

The rapper says her fiance actually had a pretty good reason for the trip -- and it wasn't to party and go crazy ... it was more business than pleasure. 

We asked if the fact she went out sans engagement ring over the weekend was a message to the NBA star -- but she shot that down hard ... saying she doesn't think women have to rock the rock 24/7. 

"It's nothing personal ... it doesn't go with the outfit."

Long story short ... seems Nick's out of the doghouse and the engagement is still on.

Kelly Ripa She Won't/Can't Leave 'Live' It's a Money Thing

4/21/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0420-kelly-ripa-money-show-live-fun-art-02

Kelly Ripa may be saber-rattling -- boycotting the show and even threatening to leave -- but sources connected with the production don't believe she's going anywhere, because of her paycheck and her spending habits.

As we reported, Kelly has been beside herself with anger after getting blindsided by ABC's announcement that Michael Strahan is leaving 'Live' for 'GMA.' If she's not back in the chair Thursday, she won't be back until Tuesday at the earliest.  

Our sources say ABC brass isn't worried that Ripa will bail on the show. We're told she makes just shy of $15 million a year, and her lifestyle eats up most of it. Kelly and hubby Mark bought a big townhouse on the Upper East Side of NYC a year ago, and they have a mansion in The Hamptons.

As one source put it, "She makes a lot of money, but she spends a lot of money, and so does he."

Kelly Ripa Everybody and Their Brother Wants Strahan's Job

4/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

042016-kelly-ripa-co-hosts-03

Kelly Ripa has suitors lining up, because we've learned just about every agent in Hollywood and New York has gotten calls from male clients saying they'd be a perfect replacement for Michael Strahan

We're told some of the names are hilariously ill-suited for the job ... lots of local news anchors/reporters and sports types. The agents are dutifully following up ... our ABC sources say network brass was flooded with calls Wednesday pitching their clients.

We're told there has been "absolutely no movement" to find Strahan's replacement, largely because everyone on the staff of 'Live' was kept in the dark until Tuesday's announcement. We're told there are no front-runners and the tryouts could lead execs to someone who hasn't been tested before.

Our sources say ABC will give Kelly sign-off rights on her co-host.
