Prince Ex-Wife Slams Sinead's Claims ... He's Not a Woman Beater!!!

4/25/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Prince's ex-wife doesn't buy Sinead O'Connor's claims he was violent toward women and abused hard drugs ... because she never saw a shred of evidence to support that.

Mayte Garcia -- who was married to Prince from 1996 to 2000 -- tells TMZ he was never violent with her and she never witnessed him being violent with anyone ... man or woman. She also says he didn't do hard drugs while they were together, and she only saw him drunk once.

Garcia's very skeptical of Sinead's self-proclaimed close relationship with Prince ... telling us she seriously doubts she could have known more than she did.

Mayte has a problem with the timing of Sinead's allegations, too ... because Prince wasn't alive to defend himself.

Garcia admits she found the reports of Prince's deadly pill stash shocking and heartbreaking, because she knew him for years and didn't see anything like that.

But as for O'Connor's most outrageous claim -- that Prince was into devil worship -- Garcia simply calls BS. She says he was spiritual and religious, but any claims of him doing something sinister are "ridiculously wrong" ... adding, "I strongly deny that in his honor."

Lakers' Julius Randle I Care About My L.A. Future ... Not LeBron's!

4/20/2018 3:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Julius Randle says you can jam it with all the questions about LeBron James on the Lakers ... because there's one Lakers future he's much more interested in ... HIS OWN.

Randle is coming off a career season with the Purple & Gold, but being that he's a restricted free agent, there's no guarantee he'll be back in tinsel town next year.

Might be why, when we got JR out in Beverly Hills and tried to ask about the chances LeBron James or Kawhi Leonard might join the squad next year, Randle couldn't make himself give a damn.

"I got to figure out my situation first."

Makes sense, kinda pointless to recruit LeBron if you're gonna be on Utah, Brooklyn, or Portland ... all places rumored to be landing spots for Randle.

Real question is, what does Julius already know that we don't?

Johnny Manziel Still Angling for Patriots QB Job

Breaking News

Johnny Manziel has made it clear he wants to play for the New England Patriots -- and on Wednesday night, he sent the team a reminder ... via his sweatshirt. 

Remember ... Manziel previously told TMZ Sports he'd love to play for Bill Belichick, "I'll go to New England in a heartbeat."

Then, the Patriots reportedly met with 25-year-old Manziel at the Texas A&M Pro Day at end of March.

Next came the Spring League where Johnny put on a solid performance which left some NFL execs raving about his potential.

Fast-forward to Wednesday night ... when Johnny rocked the Patriots hoodie while his wife, Bre Tiesi, snapchatted away.

Now, with rumblings Tom Brady might retire (yeah right) the Patriots could be in the market for a QB ... and Manziel wants to make sure he's top of mind.

That ... or maybe he just likes the sweatshirt.

Kanye West New Album's Out But Only for Charlamagne

4/19/2018 12:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West certainly looks happy about his new music, but so far ... Charlamagne Tha God's the only person we know of who's heard it.

We got Kanye leaving his office in Calabasas with "The Breakfast Club" host Wednesday night, and asked if the 2 listened to Ye's new -- and highly anticipated -- album.

Kanye doesn't say much ... but the smile on his face speaks volumes.

Our sources tell us Charlamagne got to listen to a good portion of the album -- not just "some s**t" -- and was with the rapper to do an interview about it.

As we reported ... Kanye hit the mountains of Wyoming last month to work on the album with numerous other artists -- including Drake -- but everything's been kept under wraps since the creative process began last year.

Looks like the big reveal is approaching, though.

The Weeknd Totally Single ... Despite Coachella Rumors

4/18/2018 11:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Weeknd was seen partying with a ton of hot chicks at Coachella ... but he isn't locked down by a single one.

Abel -- who headlined the festival on Friday -- was spotted with Chantel Jeffries, hanging out with Kendall Jenner and even being friendly with his ex, Bella Hadid. However, sources close to the singer tell us he's simply enjoying the single life ... and isn't serious with anyone.

Our sources say Bella was in the crowd for Friday's show and the two exchanged hellos, but any reports saying they swapped spit are totally untrue.

A post shared by Kevin Wong (@iamkevinwong) on

We're told after his performance Friday, Abel spent most of the weekend partying with his friends, family and the XO Crew.

Coachella Weekend 2 starts this Friday with another massive headlining performance from the singer, and you gotta imagine Abel will pull 'em again.

Leo DiCaprio at Coachella Hits Up Old Flame RiRi's Party ... With Rumored New GF!

4/15/2018 2:28 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Coachella is reviving an almost forgotten talent of Leonardo DiCaprio -- being able to mix former and potential current lovers alike in the same backyard ... just ask Rihanna.

Leo was seen hanging out under a cabana at RiRi's FentyxPuma Coachella party Saturday with 20-year-old Argentinian model Camila Morrone clinging to his neck in an affectionate manner. Leo and Camila have been rumored to be an item since at least December.

Rihanna was there, too, obviously ... making quite the entrance in her smokin' hot pink bodysuit. All we can say ... good Lordy ... we see you, girl!

Here's why their mutual company matters -- in case you don't remember, Leo and RiRi used to be a thing, if only for a short time. As we reported ... they were banging back in 2015 after getting hot and heavy at a Playboy Mansion party that January.

Eyewitnesses tell us Rihanna and Leo did, in fact, talk at her shindig -- but it was brief, and appeared to be mere pleasantries. Luckily for Leo, he's handled a very similar situation with his old flame before ... being under the same roof with her and then-GF Nina Agdal.

Apparently, the concept of awkward doesn't exist in Leo's world.

President Trump Comey's a Liar, Slime Ball For 'Golden Showers' Passage in Book

4/13/2018 7:26 AM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump is, predictably, pissed about former FBI Director James Comey spilling the tea on an alleged "golden showers" convo they had.

Trump ripped into Comey Friday morning, calling him an "untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI." The Prez also said it was his "great honor" to fire Comey.

POTUS is on the attack because passages from Comey's new book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership," just came out ... and one includes Comey's claim Trump asked him to disprove the so-called Christopher Steele dossier. Specifically the part of it that claims Trump watched hookers urinate on a mattress.

Trump is now accusing Comey of lying to Congress under oath, as well as blasting him for botching the "Crooked Hillary Clinton case."

SZA Coachella Collab with Cardi B ... Yeah, That'd be Gnarly!!!

4/13/2018 6:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

SZA's stoked to take the stage with Cardi B at Coachella ... IF that's the plan, but she's not even trying to hide her excitement over the possibility.

The red-hot singer was leaving Nas' restaurant, Sweet Chick, Thursday in L.A. when she told us it would be an honor to perform with Cardi at the festival, but she can't give away secrets.

It would totally make sense ... SZA's featured on Cardi's new album, "Invasion of Privacy," on the track "I Do" -- and they're both already on the Coachella lineup. Somebody's gotta make it happen!

We also asked her about Cardi's brewing beef with Nicki Minaj over their "Motorsport" collab.

If ya missed it ... Cardi insinuated Nicki tried to one-up her, and Nicki claims Cardi and Migos bullied her into making changes to her verses.

SZA's take? Don't believe the hype.

James Comey Trump Came to Me To Talk Golden Showers

4/12/2018 4:26 PM PDT
Breaking News

When it rains it pours ... Donald Trump worried there was a small chance his wife, Melania, might believe Russian hookers peed on a hotel bed where Trump was staying ... this according to former FBI director James Comey.

The hook to Comey's new book -- "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership" -- is that Trump was extremely upset over the so called Christopher Steele dossier, in which he claimed Trump watched prostitutes urinate on a hotel mattress "as a way of soiling the bed."

Trump called BS on the dossier, but privately met with Comey during a dinner a week after he was sworn in as President, and started ranting it was untrue. In the book, Comey says Trump wanted him to shoot down the story, because it was bothering him that there was "even a one percent chance ... Melania thought it was true."

Comey muses in the book why Melania might ever entertain the idea her husband was into golden showers. The former FBI chief added there was "zero chance" his own wife would believe such a claim.

Saquon Barkley Rocks NY Giants Gear ... To Barber Shop

4/12/2018 3:57 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Saquon Barkley was rockin' a NY Giants sweatshirt to a Pennsylvania barber shop and TMZ Sports has the photos.

Of course, there's a lot of buzz that the former Penn State running back is being targeted by the Giants -- who have the #2 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

Is it a good sign for NY Giants fans? Sure ... but don't go celebrating just yet.

Sources close to Barkley tell us the sweatshirt was a gift given to him from the Giants when he met with the team -- and it just happened to be laying around when he needed a shirt to go get a haircut.

FYI -- we're told players are often given team swag during pre-draft visits.

In other words ... Barkley's position is that he'd still be happy to be drafted by any team.

But S.B. is widely considered the best RB in the draft -- and ya gotta think Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. are gonna be stoked when they see these pics.

Trump Tower Doorman Claims Prez has Love Child ... I Was Told to Be Nice to the Mom

4/12/2018 1:49 PM PDT

Donald Trump has a sixth child nobody knows about -- a kid he had with his former housekeeper ... according to a stunning revelation by a doorman who used to work at Trump Tower.

Dino Sajudin has just doubled down on his claim, saying ... "I can confirm that while working at Trump World Tower I was instructed not to criticize President Trump's former housekeeper due to a prior relationship she had with President Trump which produced a child."

Sajudin also admits he had a confidential agreement with The National Enquirer about the story of Trump fathering a child out of wedlock in the late '80s.

Earlier Thursday, a report came out saying the Enquirer paid $30,000 for Sajudin's story in order to bury it ... which is similar to allegations made by Karen McDougal regarding her story of having an affair with Trump. The outlet says after investigating it determined Sajudin's claim was false. 

The Trump Organization also denied his claims.

If the story turns out to be true, it would mean the Prez has a child around 30 years of age ... which would put him or her older than Tiffany but younger than Eric.

Stan Lee Denies Elder Abuse ... Leave Me and My Friends Alone!!!

4/12/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stan Lee is mad as hell over reports he's being abused and taken advantage of, because he says they're completely untrue ... and he's going to do whatever it takes to set the record straight.

The legendary Marvel creator tells TMZ ... material recently published about him and his friends -- specifically Keya Morgan -- is nothing but slander. Lee says the claims are "hateful and harmful" and he can't even believe some of the accusations.

Stan's adamant he's not being mistreated, and suggests someone might have a personal vendetta. In any event, he's ready to take legal action against any media outlets wrongly trashing him.

As we've reported ... Lee's endured several rough months. He's been dealing with a bizarre blood heist, millions of dollars disappearing, pneumonia, and the death of his wife.

The man's fed up. 'Nuff said. 

Cardi B Does This Bodak Yellow Cover Up My Bodak Preggo?

3/29/2018 8:03 AM PDT

Cardi B's wardrobe crew is working overtime, and will continue to be until she announces what we already know ... that she's hiding a baby bump under increasingly baggy clothing.

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper got dressed to the nines Wednesday to film her new music video in which she pays homage to salsa queen Celia Cruz. The track features J Balvin and Bad Bunny, who were also at the shoot.

The spotlight clearly belonged to Cardi ... or, more specifically, her midsection. She's spending a lot of time on set, and going to great lengths to hide her belly. She did the same earlier this month at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

TMZ broke the story ... Cardi's people told nightclub staffers she's pregnant during Super Bowl weekend, and she's slated to perform at Coachella -- while pregnant -- before poppin' out the baby this summer.
