EXCLUSIVE

0705-mariah-carey-james-packer

Mariah Carey finally got billionaire James Packer on her turf -- Las Vegas -- just in time for the couple's first 4th of July together.

They shut down the rooftop deck of the swanky Mirage Villas for a Saturday evening celebration. We're told James dropped THOUSANDS to rent out the whole joint for Mariah, her managers, and Brett Ratner. This is the first time they've been together back in the States since Packer started courting Mimi during their Mediterranean tour aboard his mega yacht.

On the flip side ... Nick Cannon shared a meme addressing his single status captioned "I'm dating me."

To each his own ...

Bryan Cranston didn't just show up to the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas this weekend ... he brought Walter White along for the ride.

Cranston crashed the EDM festival and introduced the band Above & Beyond ... who just happened to have a song called "Walter White."

The "Breaking Bad" star growled out a few lines before ferociously dancing onstage with the group ... which he mildly regretted the next day. He wrote, "Leaving EDC—Vegas right now. Pulled an all-nighter. Old, my ass...Old, my head. Old, my feet...Happy Father's Day!" 

Hail Heisenberg!

0619-lamar-odom-big-INSTAGRAM-01Lamar Odom is turning to some famous boxers for support in the wake of the death of his close friend Jamie Sangouthai ... hanging with Adrian Broner and Zab Judah at an event in Vegas.

But Odom is now back in Vegas ... and today, he was supporting Broner as the boxer weighed in for his big fight against Shawn Porter tomorrow night. 

We're told Lamar has been friends with Zab for years (they're both from NY) and made plans to hang out this week while supporting Broner. 

Odom appeared to be in a good mood at the event, smiling and talking to people. 

Vegas seems like a tough place to stay on the straight and narrow ... but we're told his friends are doing their best to look out for him.

EXCLUSIVE

Channing Tatum gets paid millions to get down and dirty, but Thursday night in Vegas, he did it off a dare.

An ultra-hyper Caesars Palace MC goaded the "Magic Mike" star into bumping and grinding at the racy variety show, "Absinthe." After taking crap over some of his film flops, C.T. jumped up and busted a move.

Channing’s a big fan of the show, which combines cabaret and acrobatics.

'Saved by the Bell' Star

Surprise, I Got Hitched ...

Las Vegas-Style!

EXCLUSIVE

0611-lark-husband-tmz-01This is gonna break Screech's heart -- but Lark Voorhies snuck off to Las Vegas and tied the knot with a guy she hasn't known all that long. 

TMZ has learned the "Saved by the Bell" actress married Jimmy Green, a music engineer she met on Facebook about a year ago. Green says he and Lisa Turtle have already had 2 weddings, and they're not done yet.

He says they had a commitment ceremony on April 1, and then a Vegas chapel ceremony (complete with marriage license) on April 30. They're also planning a big wedding next year with friends and family. 

Green says they've never lived together, but finding a new pad is job 1 -- after consummation, we're guessing. Mazel tov!

Karrueche

Screw Chris Brown

I Can Post Pics of Whoever I Want

5/31/2015 7:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Karrueche Tran got hot as fish grease Saturday night when we asked if she was allowed to still mug with men.

Karrueche was leaving 1OAK in West Hollywood when she bristled at the notion that Chris Brown scared her away from posting pics of herself with other guys.  You'll recall, Brown threatened Tyson Beckford a week ago after she posted a pic of the 2 of them in Vegas.  Chris later apologized.

Get this ... last night Chris and Tyson showed up at the same place -- the iHeartRadio Summer Pool Party in Vegas.  Unclear if they interacted, but no one left bloodied.

Speaking of blood, we joked with Karrueche about the fake blood on her lip ... it's all for a movie.

Khloe Kardashain was a real trap queen ... and at least one guy was more than happy to fall into the trap when she put her best assets backward in Las Vegas.

The most recent KK sis to go platinum was at 1 OAK nightclub when a guy -- who seems to be a friend with major benefits -- danced up and invited Khloe to get closer.

Let's just say Khloe, and her ass, are loving the single life. 

Watch the clip to see her smiling from ear to ear. Kidding ... watch it for dat ass. 

Chris Weidman, Floyd Mayweather

Two Champs

Hangin' in Vegas

5/25/2015 7:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0525-chris-weismann-floyd-01

UFC champ Chris Weidman mixed fun with mixed martial arts this weekend, mugging with Floyd Mayweather at a Vegas pool after his title victory.

Chris didn't look the worse for wear after his 1st round submission against Victor Belfort at UFC 187. The sunglasses are pretty big and could be hiding a bruise or 2, but Weidman took care of business pretty quickly so probably not.

The 2 champs chilled at the pool at The Palms, where Weidman was hosting a post-fight event.

Both fighters share something pretty impressive .... they're both undefeated.

Chris Brown

I'm Going Back to Vegas

But There are Strings Attached

5/24/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-chris-brown-palms-las-vegas-TMZ-GETTY-01Chris Brown will be allowed back in the Vegas hotel where he brawled during a basketball game ... but there are serious strings attached.

Brown wants to spend part of the Memorial Day weekend at The Palms, but the hotel has reservations.

You'll recall during the Mayweather/Pacquaio fight weekend Chris had a ridiculous suite at The Palms, which had its own basketball court and at around 3 AM he allegedly attacked an opponent. Police investigated but no charges were filed.

The Palms management is agreeable to allowing Chris back, but now there are rules.  For starters, he is not allowed to throw parties in the suite without pre-approval from hotel honchos.  The rule doesn't apply if he has fewer than 15 guests.

But there's more. No outside food or alcohol, which sounds more than a money-maker for the hotel than a real rule.

Chris will be tested, because Karrueche is booked at the same hotel Saturday night, and this will be the first time they've seen each other since their breakup.

Vegas, Karrueche, basketball, and a bunch of rules … what could possibly go wrong?

Wiz Khalifa just wanted to get turnt up in Vegas for this Memorial Day weekend but there's a big wrinkle ... baby mama Amber Rose.

We’re told Wiz just found out his estranged wife has booked a suite at the Palms Casino Resort, the same place he's staying. He's contacted the hotel and insisted that he's not on her floor. Wiz has made it clear ... he does not want Amber in his line of sight during the long weekend.

It's gonna be complicated, because Amber's hosting a pool party the same day Wiz debuts at club Rain as DJ Daddy Kat.  

Here's what's apparent ... bad blood in Vegas won't stay in Vegas.
