Sasha Vujacic

I'm Over Maria Sharapova

... Forever

8/30/2015 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

NBA sharpshooter Sasha Vujacic is pulling a Taylor Swift ... saying that him and his tennis superstar ex-fiancee Maria Sharapova are never, ever, ever getting back together.

Vujacic -- who just recently signed with the NY Knicks -- was at LAX when we tossed some questions at the former Laker ... most notably, if he ever thinks he'll get back on serve with Sharapova. 

The two used to be quite the sports couple -- dating for years until they called off the engagement in 2012 ... but with Drake rekindling his romance with Maria's chief rival Serena, we had to know if reconciliation was on Sasha's brain.

The short answer? Hell no ... Vujacic bristles at the very mention of Sharapova, maybe because there is another lady in the clip who he may or may not be connected to.

Life is just like tennis ... love loses.

The Weeknd

Viral Music Video Shoot ...

NOT Busted by Cops

8/28/2015 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

That viral vid of LAPD officers brutally shutting down The Weeknd's music video shoot Thursday night in downtown LA is nothing more than a wicked game ... of promotion.

The LAPD tells TMZ ... the video going around on social media is 100% staged.

The clip shows several cops ripping through The Weeknd's set with nightsticks, demanding permits, and shutting down all video recording.

We also know the guy who posted the clip is actually Weeknd's creative director -- and since his new album drops today ... it's a little too perfect.

The beauty behind the madness here -- pure guerrilla marketing. 

Justin Bieber

Works His Instrument ...

Bags Playboy Chick

Exclusive Details

Justin Bieber showed off his fancy finger work in the middle of a bar to serenade super hot Playboy model, Xenia Deli

Justin and Xenia weren't afraid of showing some PDA Friday night, snuggling on a piano bench as he played for her in front of the crowd at an L.A. bar ... and then hit the clubs afterward.

Xenia is in Bieber's upcoming music video for his new single -- "What Do You Mean?" and we're told he's really into her ... introducing her to all his friends and even posting a pic of them playing footsie.

The Biebs is really stepping up his game -- not only is Xenia four years older than him, she also has SI Swimsuit and Victoria's Secret experience ... in addition to Playboy.

Serena Williams

Warned by Friends ...

Don't Let Drake Play You Again!

8/25/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824-drake-serena-williams-TMZ-01Drake is getting a second bite of the apple that is Serena Williams -- but now that they're back on and popping, Serena's guard is up for one reason ... best summed up in one word: THOTs.

Sources close to Serena tell us she's been into Drizzy ever since they first hooked up in 2011, but that ended badly because he had his eyes on a few other chicks at the same time. Let's face it, Drake's game with strippers and Instagram models is legendary.

We're told Serena's willing to give him another chance because they have a "good vibe" -- which was on full display in the pics TMZ posted of their dinner in Cincinnati. Still, friends are warning her to be careful she doesn't get hurt again.

Our Drake sources say it's different this time -- he treats her with more respect than his other dates because Serena's a superstar in her own right. Translation: He doesn't have to worry about her using him for fame.  

We're told she digs him showing up at her matches, and holds her family section tix for him. They're trying to take it slowly, but it's obvious from pics and videos ... they're crushing hard. Again.

Kris Jenner

I Put Weatherman On Blast ...

But I Didn't Get Him Fired

8/20/2015 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0820-kris-jenner-garth-kemp-tmz-apKris Jenner has a lot of pull in Los Angeles ... but just because she unleashed her wrath on a longtime LA weatherman over social media, doesn't mean she got him fired despite all the rumors.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Kris had nothing to do with Garth Kemp's departure from his 17-year-long position as the KABC weatherman ... he actually left to pursue his dreams of being a voice over actor.

Rumors were flying around like crazy that Garth was forced out by head honchos at his ABC affiliated station because of Kris.

Back in June KJ put him on blast to millions of her Instagram followers ... calling him a bully after he talked smack about Kim and Kanye not having talent. We're told Kris only fired back on IG ... she never called the station and didn't want him to get fired.

Mama bird defending her family is one thing, but forcing a guy to get fired is something completely different.

Matt Barnes Isn't Lying ...

He Knows Rihanna

breaking news

0818-davis-rihanna-barnes-tmz-01Rihanna needs to check herself -- and her smartphone -- 'cause she damn well has Matt Barnes' digits ... at least according to Matt's old teammate.

Glen "Big Baby" Davis jumped to Matt's defense today in the dispute over just how much of an item RiRi and MB are, or were ... before Matt told us they were "just past the crush stage."

Davis was on ESPN's "His & Hers" and told Jemele Hill and Michael Smith .... "He REALLY knows her." Now, did he mean that in the biblical sense? Check out the clip.

Wiz Khalifa and Rita Ora

Teen Choice Awards Not a One-Off

8/18/2015 5:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wiz Khalifa and Rita Ora are pretty clearly together ... not for certain, but pretty clearly.

In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, they showed up together at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood for dinner. They didn't mind the cameras and walked in together and out together.

The pair got all snuggly Sunday, backstage at the Teen Choice Awards.

Amber Rose and Rob anyone?

Matt Barnes

Hookin' Up with Rihanna

A Real Possibility

8/16/2015 11:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar2:55 PM PT -- Rihanna, clearly a TMZ Sports fan, just shot Matt down via Instagram.

0816-rihanna-beef-tmz-sports-instagram-4update_grey_gray_barMatt Barnes is confounding ... he says the stories about him going on dates with Rihanna are all gossip, but then he says things could be going down the relationship road.

We got Matt out at the UCLA Softball Stadium Saturday when he said he and RiRi are just friends, but it could lead to something.  Interesting, because it sure seems like she's dating Lewis Hamilton.  

He went as far as saying it doesn't matter that he plays for Memphis, because she has a jet.

Our sources say Matt and Rihanna were out on 2 dates fairly recently.

Rihanna ... she has many choices.

Rihanna, Lewis Hamilton

Together Again

8/15/2015 7:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0815-rihanna-hamilton-splash-01It's getting clearer by the day ... Lewis Hamilton is one lucky dude, because all signs point to a relationship with Rihanna.

The race car driver and Riri were partying at Griffin nightclub Friday, in NYC's Meatpacking District.

It seems it's all on the QT, because they arrived separately. But they've been at the same place in enough towns and countries lately to fuel rumors.

They were both at 1OAK in NYC Tuesday, and partying in Barbados last week.

But the theory has holes ... after leaving Griffin, Rihanna and Akon's brother Boo went to breakfast together.

Kendall & Kylie Jenner

Trap Queens for

Ex-Duke Superstars

8/13/2015 3:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0813_kylie_and_kendall_jenner_getty-2Former Duke stars and NBA first rounders Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones are teaming up again -- this time to holla at Kendall and Kylie Jenner ... Fetty Wap style. 

Tyus and Jahlil -- like many NBA players, we suspect -- were hot on the sisters' tails Thursday ... using Twitter to reach out. 

Our pals at BSO pointed out the ballers' tweets -- using "Trap Queen" lyrics.

0813_tyus_tweet_twitter

0813_jahil_tweet_twitterNot horribly creative on the ex-Dukies' parts, but we'll give 'em partial credit for effort, and for waiting until after Kylie's 18th birthday. So far, doesn't look like either Jenner sis has followed Tyus and Jahlil.

They shoulda gone with ... "Seen yo pretty ass soon as you came in that door." 

Lamar Odom

Khloe Knows I Did Not Attack Her!!

But She's Hanging Me Out to Dry

8/13/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom says he absolutely did NOT ambush Khloe Kardashian -- and he's heartbroken because he says Khloe knows what really happened, but ... for some reason ... won't go public to clear his name. 

Lamar wanted to vent to TMZ about the story we broke -- that, according to witnesses, he shocked Khloe outside a SoulCycle ... jumping out of a car and demanding to talk to her. Khloe eventually ran away after a witness threatened to call cops.  

But an enraged Lamar went off ... denying he stalked her, touched her or ambushed her -- and in a powerful rant says the meeting was actually prearranged with Khloe. He's hurt that she's not standing up for him. Even further, he threatens to spill secrets -- whose, he doesn't say -- if something like this happens again. 

In the video, Odom goes between anger and sadness -- especially when opening up about how his life has spiraled out of control. He also rips TMZ for what he calls racist reporting about celebrity beefs.

He Didn't Buy Nanny a Lexus

He's Radio Silent with Her

EXCLUSIVE

0812_ben_affleck-Christine-Ouzounian_getty_splash

Ben Affleck is not funding the new, lavish lifestyle of his former nanny ... this according to people very close to the situation.

Former nanny, Christine Ouzounian, proudly posted a pic of her new convertible Lexus, leading people to believe Ben was underwriting her.

Our sources say absolutely not.

0812-couzounian-lexus-instagram-3As for Ben flying Christine back from the Bahamas and to Vegas with Tom Brady, we're told a group of people were on the plane, and various people were trying on Brady's Super Bowl rings, including Christine.

There are several reports Ben has put Christine up in a high end L.A. hotel, but our sources say that's absolutely not true.

The sources do not take issue with reports that Ben had some sort of friendship with Christine, but they insist he currently has absolutely no contact with her.

Rihanna

Lewis Hamilton Is Driving Me Wild

... All Night Long

8/12/2015 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pretty clear evidence Rihanna and Lewis Hamilton are a thing now -- they popped up at the same NYC club together ... fresh off their Barbados bump and grind session.

RiRi and the Formula 1 driver left 1OAK in NYC separately Tuesday night, but within minutes of each other -- at 4:30 in the morning! But when the 2 international superstars got outside ... someone else stole the spotlight.

Check out Rihanna’s run-in with the flower lady ... some serious booty shaking went down.
