It wasn't Leonardo DiCaprio's birthday this weekend ... but it sure felt like it ... he was seen going straight up "Wolf of Wall Street" on Rihanna at the Playboy Mansion.
It's a good thing for Leo ... designer Nikki Erwin had boyfriend/producer Chuck Pacheco -- "Alpha Dogs," "My Sister's Keeper" -- invite him to her star-stacked 30th B-Day at the Playboy Mansion Saturday ... and our spies tell TMZ, Cap and RiRi were gettin' super steamy and even swapping spit.
A friend of Leo's tells us the kissing didn't happen ... but 2 people who were there say it did. BTW ... not that there's anything wrong with it.
The two apparently seemed very comfortable getting hot and heavy around stars like Paris Hilton, Hilary Duff, Tom Hardy, Pamela Anderson, Naomi Campbell, and Tobey Maguire.
It's not clear if they left together but we're told they ended up at the same after-party -- along with 50 Cent -- and things got even hotter.
Make a wish.
I Never Banged Giada ...
The Story is BS
1/11/2015 10:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Matt Lauer says he and Giada De Laurentiis never banged ... and reports saying otherwise are flat-out false.
Lauer was heading out of the LAX Saturday when he put the rumors to rest ... telling a photog the reason they've been spotted together in the past was only due to their long-time friendship.
Matt -- who was cool as a cucumber, even in the rain -- was unequivocal about the bogus story. Giada has also said the story was made up.
The "Today" anchor feels bad about what Giada's going through .... her husband has filed for divorce.
Lauer did give us a scare ... it looked like he was getting on the Hertz Shuttle.
Did She Just Announce She's Pregnant?
1/11/2015 10:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Beyonce drew a line in the sand Sunday ... then covered it with a big mound that some are saying is a pregnancy announcement.
Queen Bey posted a pic on Instagram with her body covered in sand -- with a pronounced bump over the stomach ... and her followers took notice.
It's possible she's just screwing with people ... hard to tell.
So, we gotta ask ...
He's Hunky and He's Packing

It only took a matter of hours before the website that posted a GIF making it appear Calvin Klein artificially endowed Justin Bieber with muscles and genitalia folded like a cheap suit.
TMZ broke the story ... Justin's legal team fired off a threatening letter to BreatheHeavy.com, demanding a retraction after the site posted a GIF making it appear that Bieber was way scrawnier and "smaller" than the Calvin Klein photo would suggest.
BreatheHeavy just caved and you can literally feel the fear. The site says, "Bieber denies the photo is real, and I respect that and will believe him."
But the site didn't stop there, quoting Bieber's personal trainer ... who said, "I can definitely confirm that he is a well-endowed guy. I sound weird saying that, but yes.”
Breatheheavy has removed the GIF and not only apologized to the Biebs ... but also to the blood thirsty Beliebers.
Legal Team Threatens Suit Over GIF
I'm Jacked, Not Puny!
1/10/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber is angry a website made it look like Calvin Klein pumped up his muscles using Photoshop, and unless he gets an admission he's going to court.
Justin's team fired off a demand letter -- obtained by TMZ -- threatening breatheheavy.com with a defamation case for posting a GIF showing Justin transformed from mildly muscly to jacked.
The Biebs and company say the puny photo is fake ... clearly Photoshopped, and it's damaging his brand.
Bieber's team wants 2 things: remove the post and acknowledge the deception ... or else.
Stop Hatin' ...
The Pic's Legit And I Got Proof
1/9/2015 10:11 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Shut it ... rapper Lil Boosie has video proof for all the haters who say he Photoshopped the XMAS hangout sesh with his kids.
As TMZ previously reported ... Boosie took a lot of heat this week. He's adamantly denied doctoring pics of himself to make it look like he'd spent Christmas with his kids. This video makes it clear ... he was truth-telling.
Boosie's clearly laying in the same position and the kid -- Michael Jordan Hatch -- is striking the same pose ... and the rest of the kids? They're in the room showing dad love too.
What you got now, Internet?
I Was With My Kids on XMAS
Pic is NOT Photoshopped
1/9/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lil Boosie is outraged people think he abandoned his kids on XMAS day and then had the audacity to deceive people into thinking they were with him courtesy of Photoshop.
Boosie posted the pic last week featuring 4-year-old Michael Jordan ... and a lot of people thought it just didn't look real.
We're told it was taken by a professional photog ... which is why the lighting looks better than normal. But Boosie insists the kid was front and center with him at his New Orleans digs. He says 6 of his other bambinos were there as well.
Still, we gotta ask ...
Calm Down Internet ...
It's Just a Push-Up Bra
1/8/2015 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kylie Jenner is scoffing at reports she got a boob job ... she's saying her busty Instagram photo is just the work of a fancy bra.
Our Kardashians sources say Kylie bought a new Victoria's Secret bra -- called Bombshell -- which increases your bust by 2 cup sizes. It's the bra Taylor Swift wore at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
There are reports Bruce is upset over Kris allowing Kylie to get plastic surgery, but it's not true because she didn't go under the knife.
And, we're told Kris, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney thought the bra made Kylie look so good they ordered some for themselves.
Country Singer on ESPN
Jerry Jones & Chris Christie Are Gay Lovers
1/7/2015 3:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
GLAAD is probably gonna have a thing or two to say about this one ...
Because a big country music star just took a cheap shot at Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Gov. Chris Christie live on ESPN ... and let's put it this way, he suggested there were shenanigans in the owner's box.
Kinky Friedman -- a country singer/wannabe politician/author/avid cigar smoker -- just appeared on ESPN's "Outside the Lines" to talk to Bob Ley about the famous hug during last weekend's playoff game.
His response ... well, you just have to watch the clip. Unreal.
Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy
Off the Market and In the Market
1/5/2015 9:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy gave everyone a big fat clue about their relationship status ... by doing something a freshly broken up couple doesn't do ... grocery shopping.
It sure looked like they had broken up last month ... Matt seemed downright giddy about being single. But things took a dramatic turn Sunday at a Brentwood supermarket, when the 2 shopped together, loaded their groceries in the same car and drove off.
It could be a co-parenting thing -- they have a 3-year-old son together -- but a shopping trip sure seems super domestic.
There were reports Hudson was hanging with "Dancing with the Stars" star Derek Hough ... but lately it seems it's all about Kate and Matt. They were in Aspen together over the holidays with their son.
Either the holidays have rekindled that flame ... or they found a REALLY good deal on macaroni and cheese.
Kim & Kanye
New House Purchase Is
Master Plan to Keep Kanye at Home
12/30/2014 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West spend a lot of time apart, but TMZ has learned their recent home purchase could put an end to the long distance part of their relationship.
According to our sources, Kimye purchased the house next door to their Hidden Hills dream home so they can expand their property ... to nearly five acres.
We're told the plan is to build a giant park for kids, a basketball court and a full music studio for Kanye ... so he doesn't have to venture off to Paris or Mexico to record his albums.
Our sources say a full movie theater, game room and a spa for Kim are also in the works, as well as a detached guest house.
Now Rob will never be homeless.
Sacramento Kings Heiress
I'm Not Bangin' Tyga
... We're Just Friends
12/28/2014 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The daughter of Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé tells TMZ Sports ... yes she's tight with Tyga -- but there's absolutely ZERO boot-knockin' going down between them.
As we previously reported, Tyga has been spending a LOT of quality time with Anjali Ranadivé (aka Anjali World) ... who happens to be an aspiring singer. The two were seen getting off a private jet together earlier this month leading to speculation they were romantically involved.
But Anjali tells us, "We're just friends and working on music together."
We're told the two met through her manager ... and Anjali says they hit it off (in a platonic and professional way) -- and have been hitting the studio together ever since.
They've already recorded one song together which they performed at a recent Kings game (see video below.)
"I look up to him musically," Anjali says ... "and I can't wait to make even more music with Tyga in the future."
Chris Brown & Karrueche
They Just Can't Quit Each Other
12/24/2014 7:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran loved, hated, loved, hated ... and apparently the pendulum has
We got video of the feuding exes leaving Playhouse early Wednesday morning. The two of them walk out of the club together, but appear to leave separately.
Karrueche was hosting a holiday party and toy drive at the club and there were flyers with her mug promoting the vent, so it's not like Chris didn't know she was there.
It actually seemed like this was a split for good, after CB went on stage and screamed "F*** Karrueche!"
Will this be the final chapter? Not a chance.
