R. Kelly Fan Grabs Handful of Chestnuts During Christmas Concert

12/4/2016 1:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One R. Kelly fan definitely made Santa's naughty list when she got up close and personal with the singer's junk making it a very, very merry Christmas in the D ... Detroit, that is. 

Kelly kicked off his "12 Nights of Christmas" concert Friday night at the legendary Fox Theatre, but this is clearly not a holiday show for the kids. It's a much different take on "The Nutcracker."

Kelly's reaction to the grabby fan is priceless, considering he was kinda asking for it.

Kanye & Kim Christmas As Usual Around the House

12/2/2016 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1202-kanye-west-tree-x17-01Kanye West will be recovering in the yuletide spirit -- it's full steam ahead on Kardashian-sized holiday decorations at his house, days after leaving UCLA Medical Center.   

It took at least half a dozen workers to squeeze a giant Christmas tree -- looks to be at least 25 feet tall -- through the doors of Kim and Kanye's Bel-Air home.  

There was also a huge water delivery. As we previously reported, 'Ye's doc told cops the rapper's temporary psychosis was brought on by sleep deprivation and extreme dehydration ... although we've since learned Kanye's issues run much deeper than that.

12/2/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Wayne Brady was surprisingly MIA for opening night of his new play, but he's got an excuse we can all relate to -- he ate way too much on Thanksgiving. Seriously.

We asked Wayne why he missed his debut in "Merrily We Roll Along" Wednesday night, and he told us -- despite rumors of a more serious injury -- it was something way more embarrassing.

Brady assured us and all his fans there's no reason to worry, though ... he's already recovered and will be onstage at the Bram Goldsmith Theater in Bev Hills Friday night.

HoneyBaked Ham be damned.

Fogle, Guidice and Dassey Inmates Chow Down on Thanksgiving Grub

11/24/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1123-dassey-fogle-suge-tmz-getty-2Jared Fogle, Brendan Dassey and a bunch of other famous prisoners may have given up many of their inalienable rights, but not the right to get the bird on Turkey Day.

We surveyed the landscape, and here's what the joints are offering for Thanksgiving dinner:

Brendan Dassey (Wisconsin)
The "Making a Murderer" star gets roasted turkey with giblet gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, biscuits, pumpkin pie with crust on top, veggie salad and chocolate milk.

Suge Knight (Los Angeles)
Suge's meal is similar to Dassey's, but he gets a dinner roll instead of a biscuit and a pumpkin muffin instead of pie ... and milk without the chocolate.

Kevin Gates (Florida)
The rapper also gets a traditional meal, but add corn and a fruit turnover to the spread. Sorry, no milk. Gates' prison also serves a vegetarian option of rice, beans and fruit.

Joe Giudice & Apollo Nida (New Jersey)
The 'Real Housewives' hubbies will chow down on a traditional meal, cafeteria-style, that includes stuffing and dessert.

Jared Fogle (Colorado)
The ex-Subway spokesman now eats fresh at the Federal Correctional Institution in Englewood, and he gets turkey and ham or, alternatively, eggplant/baked tofu. Colorado seems to have the best menu ... it includes cornbread dressing, corn and sweet potato casserole.

Ernest Walker's story made national news -- he was dining at Chili's in Texas when the manager questioned his military service and took away his food. Walker recorded the incident on his phone. 

Chili's eventually apologized -- but now, we've learned Cuban heard about the story and wanted to personally honor the vet ... so the Mavs owner made the following offer: 

-- 2 season tickets to the Dallas Mavs games for the rest of the season

-- 10 bonus tickets to Wednesday night's game so Walker can bring 10 more vets! 

-- 10 bonus tickets to most Mavs home games to give out to other vets and people in need

-- Cuban agreed to donate money to Ernest's campaign to feed 1 million soldiers

We spoke to Walker who says he's pumped about the offer and expressed his gratitude to Cuban when they talked on the phone earlier Wednesday.
