Quincy Jones My Bad for Spilling the Beans, Guys ... My Fam Had to Intervene!

2/22/2018 9:46 AM PST
Breaking News

Quincy Jones has apologized for his recent "wordvomit" interviews -- his word -- in which he revealed A LOT of dirt on Hollywood elites ... but he isn't taking any of it back. 

The legendary music producer said Thursday his six daughters pulled him aside for a surprise "family intervention" due to some "silly things" he's said lately.

He goes on to say he'd recently stopped drinking (3 years ago) and makes a point that certain details he's spilled on don't paint the full picture of his intentions or experiences over his "long & crazy life." That said ... he doesn't correct the record on anything.

Quincy does, however, apologize to anyone he's bad-mouthed -- like Michael Jackson, for example -- adding that it's inexcusable to do so. He also hopes messages he relayed about racism, inequality, poverty, etc. aren't clouded by his outrageous remarks.

Quincy's caused quite a stir by saying lots of things -- some of which appeared to be true -- like Richard Pryor banging Marlon Brando, MJ hijacking "Billie Jean," Marilyn Monroe having "a chest that looked like pears" ... and allegedly "dating" Ivanka Trump.

For all that stuff ... he's sorry. But again ... not retracting anything.

Florida Shooting Survivor David Hogg Yearbook Proves Conspiracy Theory is Bunk

2/21/2018 12:49 PM PST

David Hogg, the Florida high school shooting survivor, is at the center of a spreading conspiracy theory ... that he and other survivors are not really students, but now that's being squarely debunked.

The theory goes Hogg already graduated from a California high school, and just went to Parkland, FL to act as a shooting survivor, and push for gun control. Someone figured out one simple way to address the issue -- the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High yearbook!

Take a look, the video of the school's 2017 yearbook shows David's photo among the school's underclassmen. Since it's not a senior portrait, he clearly didn't graduate last year, and clearly was enrolled at the school.

We've learned Hogg did attend a Southern Cali school years ago, but moved to Florida with his family sometime before the 2015 school year. Hogg's Twitter history also shows tweets as far back as 2015 marking himself at the Florida school.

Case closed.

Michael B. Jordan Gets Physical, Flirty with Lupita ... 'BP' Set Romance?

2/20/2018 6:42 AM PST

Lupita Nyong'o has Michael B. Jordan wrapped around her finger ... for at least a few more days, but that's what he gets for betting.

The "Black Panther" co-stars have been getting pretty flirty in recent weeks, and it continued when she popped into his dressing room Monday at "The View." After grabbing/caressing Michael's face ... Lupita demanded he drop down and pump out ... one push-up.

Apparently they made some bet, which he lost, and now MBJ has to do on-call, on-demand push-ups.

The dressing room antics only fueled dating rumors. They were spotted getting a little handsy at several events and promotional appearances last week ... including NY Fashion Week.

While their fans are all about it, and would LOVE to see them really be a thing ... our sources say the flirting is more about promoting the movie.

With $235 mil at the box office, we'd say ... mission accomplished!

Tito Ortiz 'A Lot of Interest' in Chuck Liddell ... Only Fight I'd Take!

2/20/2018 12:55 AM PST

Tito Ortiz is doubling down on his Chuck Liddell call-out ... telling TMZ Sports straight-up that he's down for a 3rd fight with the Iceman!

"I don't need to fight, but if Chuck needs to ... I'll be a good friend like he was once and give him a payday," Ortiz said ... adding that ONLY Chuck could pull him outta retirement.

The bad news -- Tito says he proposed Ortiz vs. Liddell 3 to a UFC matchmaker on New Year's ... and got shot down HARD 'cause they're worried about Chuck's health.

"He kinda looked at me and laughed and said, 'Chuck couldn't fight again! He's been knocked out unconscious 5 times! I guarantee you the doctor won't give him a license."

But that ain't stoppin' Chuck -- who tells us he's still training his ass off.

Michael Rapaport Really Fired from Real Job ... Says Barstool Prez

2/19/2018 11:48 AM PST
Exclusive Details

It seemed like a joke, but Barstool Sports president Dave Portnoy tells TMZ Sports the organization REALLY did fire Michael Rapaport this weekend after he insulted the company's fans.

It all started when Rap posted a tweet saying "Stoolies" are losers in life. Portnoy says he and the rest of the staff took offense ... "That was the ultimate deal-breaker."

Portnoy says Rapaport was under contract with Barstool -- as part of the deal, he would create original content like viral videos and Barstool would "rep" Michael's popular podcast, "I Am Rapaport."

It seemed the two sides had a great business relationship -- but Portnoy says it turned into an "utter and complete train wreck."

Portnoy tried to fire Rapaport over text message -- but accidentally sent it to NFL insider Ian Rapaport instead. Eventually, Michael got the message. 

"To me, it was very personal. It was very real," Portnoy says. 

"I don't have necessarily any hard feelings for him. It's just, if you're going to insult our entire fanbase and people who like Barstool, it doesn't make much sense necessarily for these same people to be paying your bills and supporting your podcast ... it just makes no sense."

Brandi to Omarosa So, You Ever Have Sex with Trump?!!?

2/17/2018 7:17 AM PST

Holy crap, this one's juicy ...

Brandi Glanville asked Omarosa straight out ... did she ever sleep with Donald Trump!

Omarosa answers, but that's by no means the end of it. She says someone in The White House is sleeping around with everybody. Just a note ... the contestants need to get a lot better asking follow-up questions.

But wait, there's more. Brandi claims some of the women on "The Apprentice" got down with the boss. As for whether Omarosa did, well, she says she didn't have to. Her reason makes her so unlikable ... and so watchable. 

Stormy Daniels Brings Her Dirty Laundry ... To Strip Club!!!

2/17/2018 7:48 AM PST

Porn star Stormy Daniels has been reveling in all the dirty laundry involving her and Donald Trump, so it makes sense she brought a laundry basket to the strip club Friday night for a meet-and-greet.

Stormy showed up at Thee Dollhouse in Tampa, Florida to pose, sign autographs and sell merch ... after performing of course.

She signed copies of "In Touch" mag, which had her face plastered on the cover along with Donald Trump, with whom she allegedly had a tryst back in the day. 

The gig is the first of 4 appearances at the club and is part of her "Make America Horny Again" tour. She's previously appeared in South Carolina, Las Vegas and may be coming to a city near you.

Offset My Chick's Not Pregnant!!!

2/16/2018 4:17 PM PST

One of Cardi B's reps has been telling people she's 3 to 4 months pregnant, but if she is, it's news to her fiance.

We got Offset Friday afternoon heading into Peter Marco Jewelers on Rodeo Drive, and he was clear as a bell ... Cardi, he says, is not with child.

The 26-year-old Migos member already has 3 bambinos -- 2, 2 and 8 -- and he says no one's joining the brood anytime soon. 

Offset and Cardi are both in L.A. for NBA All-Star Weekend, where they're set to perform together.

Cardi B I'm Not Talking Pregnancy ... Not Yet, Anyway

2/16/2018 9:18 AM PST

Cardi B's not ready to say if she's pregnant, but she's also not gonna say she isn't. 

We got the rapper leaving her hotel in NYC Friday morning -- presumably to catch her flight to L.A. for NBA All-Star Weekend -- but she waved off any talk about babies on board.

But here's something ... Cardi also posted a vid of herself dancing in a bra and sweats Friday -- apparently, the same sweats we saw her in -- and she certainly doesn't look 3 to 4 months pregnant like one of her people told a staffer at a Super Bowl party.

Cardi does tell us one thing, though -- she's excited for All-Star Weekend ... and doesn't seem concerned at all about any issues with the Crips.

Cardi B Shimmers in Unresolved Pregnancy Mystery

2/16/2018 6:51 AM PST

Cardi B hit up Madison Square Garden Thursday in a shimmering, sequined getup, and it doesn't resolve the question ... is she really pregnant?

Cardi showed up for the Romeo Santos concert at MSG, struttiing in with attitude. From this angle, it's hard to see if she's showing, but an argument can be made both ways.

TMZ broke the story ... one of Cardi's people told a staffer at a Super Bowl party she was drinking Fiji Water because she was 3 to 4 months pregnant.

Maybe more immediately pressing ... Cardi's expected to fly to L.A. Friday for All-Star Weekend, and there are security concerns after she dissed the Crips in a recent post. 


Spice Girls Contracts Signed for Reunion Tour

2/15/2018 1:00 AM PST

The Spice Girls have signed contracts for their reunion tour ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the group tell us, Mel B signed on the dotted line last Friday and we're told the other members signed as well.

TMZ broke the story ... the girls have agreed to reunite for a series of concerts in the UK and the U.S.  After our story posted, Victoria Beckham told Vogue there would be no reunion tour, but we know Mel B has signed the deal, as have others, and it spells out the specifics, including the number and location of concerts and compensation.

We're told there will be a limited number of concerts in the 2 countries and the group is gearing up to make a ton of cash on merchandise too. 

James Caan Jokes About Shaun White Who Didn't He Sexually Harass? (Except Me)

2/15/2018 6:07 AM PST

James Caan doesn't seem too shocked about the Shaun White sexual harassment case -- telling TMZ Sports, "Everybody had sexual harassment. How the f*ck do you think we repopulated?!" 

Caan was riffing on the topic outside Craig's in West Hollywood -- where he took a second to make one thing perfectly clear ... "I mean, I never did anything wrong!" 

Caan's clearly joking about the situation -- but we guarantee Shaun's accuser ain't laughing ... just last night, she issued a statement slamming the snowboarder for minimizing her allegations by referring to it as "gossip."

Dr. J Markelle Fultz Will Be Fine ... Here's Why

2/14/2018 2:10 PM PST

Great news, 76ers fans -- Dr. J's got faith Markelle Fultz is gonna fix his broke ass jump shot ... and he's telling TMZ Sports exactly why.

We got Julius touching down at LAX for All-Star week ... and the doctor gave his official diagnosis on why it looks like the #1 overall pick's been talent-zapped by The Monstars.

"Clearly it's some sort of physical thing that's causing him the problems that he's having, more than mental," Erving explained.

Essentially, Dr. J's saying Markelle's shoulder injury is to blame ... and the kid can get back to ballin' out with proper R&R.

FYI, there have been reports claiming Fultz's personal trainer is to blame for screwing with his jumper ... but no one really knows.

We still like the Monstars theory.
