Penn Jillette

Hey Bacon Worshipers ...

Wanna Buy My Vegas Crib?

10/3/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002-church-of-bacon-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-01Penn Jillette might just have the perfect buyers for his Las Vegas mansion and the new residents are all high ... in cholesterol.

The United Church of Bacon, a group of more than 12,000 religious skeptics and atheists has its collective eyes set on the 7,500 square foot pad. We're told they'll use the place for community meetings, weddings and for plain old, "having fun."

As for the home, which Jillette nicknamed "The Slammer," it sits on 8.5 acres and features a lap pool, catwalks connecting different wings of the house and even a fire pole from one level to the floor. 

The church's central tenet is that bacon is real ... it's proven to exist. The church's money better be real too ... the home is listed at more than $2 million.

Chris Brown

Watch Out Britney, J-Lo and Mariah ...

I've Got My Own Vegas Deal Now

9/27/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



A person close to Chris tells us ... the deal includes 10 shows and could earn him even more money than $50K per performance.


Chris Brown is on the verge of creating his own Vegas residency dynasty ... he just signed on with a big time nightclub.

Sources close to Chris tell TMZ, the singer inked a trial run type deal with Drai's to perform at least 6 shows at $50k per pop. We're told the club has been so impressed with the large crowds and great shows Chris has put on in the past, they've decided to test out a long term deal.

But that's not all ... our sources say Trey Songz is part of the deal and will be rotating with Chris. We're told the total talent fee investment is around $500k.

It's still a far cry from the cash J-Lo, Britney Spears and Mariah rake in, but hey -- you gotta start somewhere. 

Let's just hope this time at Drai's, Chris doesn't lose his footing.

Nick Jonas

Raging with a Bachelorette!!

In a Vegas Elevator, Baby

9/24/2015 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nick Jonas hosted a dance party complete with wild chicks, celeb cameos ... and a giant inflatable penis -- and even though it doesn't sound like it ... it was just another day at the office.

Nick was staying at the MGM Grand for the iHeart Radio Music Festival when he got the idea to surprise hotel guests with the elevator rager -- as a clever way to promote his song, "Levels."  

We're told the MGM Grand gave Nick access to 2 lifts he rigged with hidden cameras so he could film the whole thing.

Labelmates Tove Lo, Pete Wentz, The Vamps and Shawn Mendes helped get the party started before the crew picked up a bachelorette party, and a Vegas tourist who had no problem taking off his shirt.

We gotta hand it to Nick, he's got a knack for hijacking things.


David Guetta

Gang Stabbings at Big Vegas Show

9/20/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0918-xs-nightclub-vegas-GETTY-01.JPGupdate_graphic_red_barAccording to police docs, the stabbing went down at 7 AM on Labor Day ... which means it happened during the tail end of David Guetta's show. Skrillex and Diplo did not perform at XS until later that evening.update_grey_gray_barA violent fight was swept under the rug in Vegas over Labor Day, when 4 people were seriously stabbed night during a DJ's show at XS Nightclub.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, a huge fight involving around 20 people broke out in the middle of the show, leaving 4 with stab wounds. Our sources say it has all the markings of a gang fight. 

We're told the injuries were serious including a punctured lung and spleen but everyone survived -- one victim admitted to gang ties and didn't want to go forward with any charges.

However, law enforcement tells us they have arrested someone on 3 counts of attempted murder. That said, cops are having problems developing the case, because almost everyone they've tried to interview developed a case of amnesia. 

Steve Wynn's Las Vegas Hotel

35 Ferraris Get the Boot

9/17/2015 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0917-main-the-wynn-ferrari-getty-01The world famous Penske Wynn Ferrari showroom at The Wynn in Las Vegas needs shelter, because they're getting evicted.

Our Wynn sources say the hotel mogul has been frustrated that he's not making the best use of the 10,000 square foot space inhabited by the high-end dealership. In other words, Wynn can make a killing renting to someone else.

So the dealership has till the end of the year to skedaddle.


The Wynn's Ferrari showroom was the only dealership in Nevada. Guests had to pay $10 to browse ... Ferrari owners oogled for free. 

But Ferrari fan fear not ... Penske Ferrari already has a new home lined up at Towbin Motorcars in Vegas.

Justin Bieber

Standoff After Mayweather Fight

Don't Make Me Cuff You!!

9/14/2015 2:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber had to square off with a ringside security guard just so he could get to his pal Floyd Mayweather Jr. to celebrate his victory.

The video is kinda bizarre ... since everyone knows Justin and Floyd are as tight as can be -- but one security guard apparently missed Bieber walking ... INTO THE RING with the champ.

Witnesses tell us Justin was actually in the ring until police politely asked him to step out during post-fight ceremonies. The video begins as Bieber tries to get back in, only to have the guard stand his ground and bark ..."You wanna be escorted out in handcuffs, young man?"

Credit to Justin for NOT playing the "Don't you know who I am" card, even though he'd be justified in this case.

Britney Spears

J Lo Gets Her Crumbs

In New Vegas Deal

9/10/2015 11:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0910-spears-lopez-getty-01Britney Spears is now the reigning queen of Vegas, and she's already flexed her royal muscles in J Lo's face.

Britney just signed a 2-year extension on her Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood. J Lo will also be performing at the same venue beginning in January. Sources familiar with Britney's new deal tell us, the venue gave Britney first pick at concert dates and Lopez got to choose from what was left. 

As for the new deal ... it's sweet. We're told Britney will make an additional $5 million for the extension. She is currently under a $30 million/2 year deal, but the new one will pay her $35 mil.

0910-sub-britney-spears-getty-01She'll also be doing fewer performances so she's making more per show. 

Our sources says the new deal, with merchandising, could top Celine Dion.

Britney Spears

I'm Not Elvis ... Yet!

2 More Yrs. in Vegas, Y'all

breaking news

Britney Spears and Sin City aren't breaking up just yet ... she's decided to extend her residency at The Axis in Planet Hollywood for another two years.

Brit made the announcement Wednesday night during her "Britney: Piece of Me" show.

As TMZ first reported, Brit's initial deal called for her to make $30 million over two years, but the show performed so well ... she quickly negotiated herself a pay bump.

The extension will give her 4 years on the Strip -- shy of Elvis Presley's 7-year run, but still impressive by today's standards.

Fun fact: Elvis got a staggering $500,000 just for his initial 4 weeks in Vegas ... in 1969!

Jesse Jane

I Was Roofied

Not Wasted In Vegas

9/9/2015 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Porn star Jesse Jane says what looked like a case of her getting wasted Tuesday in Las Vegas was really the result of her getting roofied.

A rep for Jesse says she slammed 2 shots at a bar inside a Vegas hotel … problem is she got them from a stranger. Soon after, Jesse and her friends left the bar and she passed out cold on the Vegas Strip, which was when the video was shot.

Friends managed to get her back to her hotel room where she recovered. Jesse believes she was drugged because she woke up not remembering much, feeling weak and vomiting.

We're told she's OK, but resting up.

Porn Star Jesse Jane


... On the Vegas Strip!

9/8/2015 2:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is not the way you typically see porn legend Jesse Jane on her back -- she got so blasted in Las Vegas, she fell unconscious on a sidewalk in the middle of the day. 

According to witnesses, 35-year-old Jesse was with a small group of friends on Tuesday when she went down across the street from Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino ... shortly after 1 PM. 

You can tell from the video, Jesse is completely unresponsive. In other words ... her fun day in Vegas just took a turn for the worse. MUCH worse. We're told her friends eventually stopped trying to wake her up, and just carried her away.

We've got a call in to her rep to see if she's okay.
