4/14/2017 12:30 AM PDT

Kanye West hasn't hit the stage since November -- and despite heavy speculation -- that's not gonna change at Coachella ... TMZ has learned.

Rumors have been swirling 'Ye would make his big comeback this weekend in the desert. He's featured on "THat Part" by ScHoolboy Q -- a performer this year -- and has worked with Travis Scott (who will arguably play the biggest show of his career at Coachella).

Fans thought Scott's appearance was a big clue Kanye would resurface.

Multiple festival sources are clear ... Kanye will not perform at Coachella ... period.

Kanye's no stranger to the music festival ... he jumped onstage with A$AP Rocky last year and famously headlined in 2011.

No one's saying when Kanye will resurface.

Will Smith's Killer Sues NFL Star's Widow ... You Ruined My Life

Breaking News

The man convicted of shooting and killing ex-NFL star Will Smith is now suing Smith's widow in civil court -- claiming it was Will who triggered the violence that fateful night and ruined his life. 

Cardell Hayes is suing Racquel Smith, the estate of Will Smith and others over the events from April 9, 2016 ... when Hayes shot Smith in New Orleans following a road rage incident.

In the suit, Hayes says Smith was very drunk when he began dangerously taunting him on the road that night ... culminating in Hayes slamming his car into Smith's vehicle.

Hayes says Smith threw a drink in his face and punched him while one of Smith's associates tried to club him with a weapon.

Hayes says Smith went back to his car, grabbed a gun and shot at him multiple times. 

Cops say they found a loaded gun in Smith's car that night -- but prosecutors had said there's no evidence he ever fired it during the altercation. 

Hayes was eventually convicted of manslaughter and could face up to 40 years in prison. Sentencing is set for later this month.

Meantime, Hayes is suing the Smiths in civil court for the assault, severe emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life and more.

Yeah, Hayes killed Smith ... but that doesn't mean Smith [really Smith's estate] can't also be found liable for his actions that night.

4/13/2017 10:23 AM PDT

Blake Shelton has reached a settlement with In Touch in his lawsuit over its cover story which labeled him a drunk who was going to rehab.

According to docs filed Thursday, Blake and the magazine are asking the court to dismiss the defamation lawsuit he filed in 2015. The mag ran a cover story in September 2015 declaring the country star had hit "rock bottom" and was drinking vodka before noon.

Sources tell TMZ ... In Touch shelled out an undisclosed amount of money to make the suit go away.

Rudy Gay I'm Way Ahead of Schedule ... In Achilles Recovery

4/13/2017 6:26 AM PDT

Great news for Sacramento Kings star Rudy Gay -- his recovery from a torn Achilles injury is going GREAT ... with Gay telling us he's 1 MONTH ahead of schedule!

As we previously reported, Rudy ruptured his tendon in a game against the Pacers on January 18 and underwent surgery a few days later. 

Obviously, the Kings' season is over and Gay won't be in the NBA playoffs -- HOWEVER, he could choose to become a free agent on July 1st and sign a fat new longterm contract with another team. 

So, when Gay says he's feeling great and should start running soon -- he's really probably talking to other teams ... letting everyone know he'll be healthy and worth every penny!!!

Gay is one of the best scorers in the league when healthy (19 points a game) ... hope the Lakers are paying attention!

Boosie Badazz Cops Deny Stealing Bling ... You Never Picked it Up!!

4/12/2017 12:12 PM PDT

Boosie Badazz' $1 million jewelry stash was never jacked by cops -- it was just impounded and nobody bothered coming by to pick it up ... according to a Biloxi city officials.

Public Affairs Manager Vincent Creel tells TMZ ... cops found a suitcase full of gold jewelry and a stolen gun in the van they pulled over in connection with the scuffle between mall security and Boosie's crew on Sunday. We're told cops gave instructions on how to get all the property back ... but nobody followed them.

Boosie's crew says they were pepper sprayed by security and arrested by police after the mall incident, and the rapper was beyond pissed, claiming police stole his ice. Creel says that's untrue ... in fact, someone has claimed the van and jewelry.

Biloxi officials tell us they take offense to those challenging their "professionalism and integrity."

Also ... we're told the stolen gun has yet to be claimed.

Boosie's got another take on the whole situation, though ... claiming the jewelry only happened to show up once he and his lawyers put heat on the police.

I told you 🙏these mfs r thieves,racist etc. all of sudden it's found smh I'll see y'all n court #nomobiloxi

4/9/2017 10:13 AM PDT

Karrueche Tran is taking some much needed alone time away from her Chris Brown drama ... and she's doing it with Quavo from Migos.

Quavo was performing with his crew and a bunch of other rappers Saturday night at Gulf Coast Spring Fest in Biloxi, Mississippi, where we're told Karrueche watched from backstage.

After the show, Quavo and co. left the stage to make their way toward the exit with Karrueche in tow. Eyewitnesses tell us Quavo gave her a hug before they rode off together in the same whip ... by themselves. 

Looks like Karrueche's CB courtroom battle has her feeling a little bad and boujee.

4/8/2017 7:27 AM PDT

Sylvester Stallone made a huge point Friday night, shooting down rumors he's out of the "Expendables" game.

We got Sly coming out of Craig's and asked if he's open to doing "Expendables 4" and he jumped on the question, sounding like he's down with it.

We got some other actors from the "Expendables" franchise earlier this week -- including Wesley Snipes and Dolph Lundgren, both of whom said they wouldn't do 4 without Sly.

Sounds like it's gonna happen.

Steve Perry To Reunite With Journey At Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Induction

4/7/2017 7:01 AM PDT

Steve Perry hasn't performed with Journey since 1991 but he'll be greeted with open arms Friday night as the band is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Members of Journey have confirmed Perry will indeed be onstage at the induction ceremony in Brooklyn, but were mum on whether he'd sing with the group. 

Perry ditched the band in 1987 on the coattails of a double platinum album ... they were arguably at their peak. He reunited shortly with the band in 1991 for the all-star tribute to legendary music promoter Bill Graham and performed just a few songs.

Since then, Perry's had his own solo career while remaining living members have continued to tour under the name Journey.

Members of Journey have said they're open to Perry performing a song or 2 with the band, but seems it's in Perry's corner.

Lena Dunham is not pregnant, certainly by recent appearances, despite her character on "Girls" showing her super preggo.

We got this pic of Lena walking an L.A. street Thursday, and if anything she looks like she dropped a lot of weight.

She said recently she doesn't feel like she can win ... she's shamed when she loses weight and shamed when she doesn't.
