Nicki Minaj has a message for her ex ... if you didn't wanna be a superstar so damn bad, you'd still be sleeping in my bed.
Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ ... Nicki cut the relationship off -- after 14 years -- because he became uncontrollably jealous of her success ... success he wanted for himself.
We're told Nicki and Safaree had an arrangement -- she's the breadwinner and he's the backup singer/hype man/personal assistant. But we're told Safaree was getting sick of being in the background and had become increasingly hostile ... an emotion she reciprocated.
We hear the final straw was when Safaree didn't show up recently to one of Nicki's shows, leaving her scrambling for a hype man. She confronted him and he went crazy.
Breakup rumors spread this week when Safaree showed up in public with several of his Nicki tats covered up.
Looks like he's got a lot more work to do now.
Backs That Thang Up On Jamie Foxx
... What Should He Do?
10/21/2014 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mama Knowles jumped on stage during Jamie's performance at the Angel Ball in NYC Monday night -- and decided to back, back, back it on up ... right into Awkwardville.
And that's when Jamie starts sweating. His options:
- Totally go for it and give Beyonce's mom the ride dance of her life
- Politely back away because that's Jay Z's mother-in-law.
And, of course, he doesn't wanna hurt Tina's feelings either, so ... watch to see how Jamie handled it.
As for Tina -- just blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-a-alcohol.
My Butt is Back!
... And It Wants Taco Bell

Dammmmmmmmmmnn .... is pretty much all you can say about Kim Kardashian's ass-entuating outfit for a Sunday afternoon outing with Kanye West.
The couple hit up a theater in Calabasas for a movie date and on the way out Kim proudly displayed her trademark in cutoff jeans and a back-baring top -- then they hit up a Taco Bell drive-thru.
You can tell from the photo ... Kanye gives this rearview two thumbs up. Way up.
Not to be a buzzkill -- but rubbing your bare back on a movie theater seat? Risky business.
For Ebola Scare
... But Would You Still?

Two strippers won't be hitting up the champagne room for the next 21 days because they're in Ebola quarantine ... but once they get out, would you still let them rub their junk on your lap?
Texas flop jockeys Axl Goode and Taylor Cole say they sat 3-feet from Ebola patient, nurse Amber Vinson -- during a flight from Cleveland to Dallas on Monday -- so they called the CDC.
The buffed out strippers were on hold for 81 minutes before they finally got an official on the line. After that, they were placed on a 21 day voluntary quarantine.
So, sometime next month Goode and Cole will be back on their grind. But we gotta ask ...
My Baby Mama's Ripped
And Looks Damn Good in a Bikini
10/16/2014 12:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Lance Armstrong image makeover continues ... now with more bikini photos!!!
The disgraced cyclist was out in Miami Beach this week with his longtime GF Anna Hansen -- who also happens to the mother of 2 of his 5 children.
Anna looks damn good ... and in the pics, she's all over Lance -- suggesting that if a hot chick with a hardbody can forgive the guy, maybe we can all move on too.
Then again ... he did cost us 7 frickin' titles!!!
I See Your Mozart Boobs ...
And Raise You Two

Coco Austin has a message for the Internet's Mozart boob girl -- and it's that her chesticles are every bit as musical!
Ice-T and Coco were out in NYC and we asked her about viral sensation Sara X -- who famously bounced her breasts to a Mozart beat -- and Coco responded the best way she possibly could. Just watch.
Coco did tell us she thinks Sara's video could actually spark a huge modern day renaissance for Mozart. Can't hurt boobs either. Not that they need any help.
Victim of Hot

Nick Cannon was caught inside a giant avalanche in Las Vegas this weekend ... but there was no snow.
Cannon is clearly enjoying the single life ... and proved it by spinning a 2-hour set at Drai's Sunday night -- capped off by a bunch of hot chicks filling up every nook and cranny of his DJ booth.
Nick was seen chatting it up with various girls throughout the night when he wasn't behind the turntables ... and it seems like the name Mariah is starting to become an afterthought.
Especially since that giant tattoo is gone.
Classic Recording Sullied With Boobs
10/13/2014 1:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mozart just rolled over in his grave ... but don't worry, it was only because this video made him really excited.
Thanks to the awesomeness of the Internet some chick named Sara X took to YouTube to show off an amazing talent ... bouncing her boobs to the tune of a song with no hands.
This time, she chose the Mozart classic "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" -- and it's AWESOME!
Have you seriously not started watching this video yet?!
Shame on you.
Haitian Prime Minister
Yeah, My GF's a Supermodel
And I'm Damn Proud Of It
10/10/2014 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Petra Nemcova is one of the most beautiful women in the world ... which makes Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe one of the luckiest men, and the guy's got no problem admitting it.
The supermodel went public with their relationship a few months ago -- which has to give Lamothe a huge leg up in meetings with other heads of state, right? We got the PM in Washington, DC on Thursday, and asked him if that's the case.
LL's no fool ... he played it like a good boyfriend should.
One tip for the Prime Minister, who was leaving the World Bank when we shot him. Next time bring Petra! Nerdy bankers melt for supermodels ... like most of us.
... He Just Won't Admit It

We all agree “Real Husbands of Hollywood” star Boris Kodjoe is the most beautiful man on Earth -- because we have eyes -- but for some reason he can't get on board.
The only thing Boris will cop to is some crap about "beauty on the inside” ... blah, blah, blah ... we can't hear what he's saying over his freakin' perfection.
Golf Legend Gary Player
5,200 Sit-Ups Per Week
... At 78-Years-Old!!!
10/7/2014 6:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
He's 78-years-old ... but golf legend Gary Player tells TMZ Sports he still knocks out 5,200 sit-ups every single week!!!!!!!!
This is no joke.
The South African stallion was making his way through NYC Monday when he told us about his incredible fitness regimen ... a regimen that landed him on the cover of ESPN's Body Issue in 2013.
And it's clear from the video ... even as he's pushing 80, Player has no intention of slowing down anytime soon.
Soooo ... what's your excuse?

Dude's Got a Butt Crack Problem

Nick Jonas bared almost everything for Flaunt magazine. Or we should we say, “bears” all … because the photos revealed his SUPER hairy ass crack. Yeah, it can't be unseen.
But some people are not only cool with that -- they're downright excited the nearly nudes! Ok, it's really just one guy ... in our newsroom.
