EXCLUSIVE

Dennis Rodman put in WORK on the streets of Vegas Monday night ... teaming up with a bucket drummer outside Planet Hollywood ... and the people loved it!

We're told it all went down around 10 PM ... when Rodman was walking around the strip and saw the dude murdering the bucket drums.

Rodman grabbed the mic and busted out James Brown's "Get On Up" ... and it wasn't bad.

Shout-out to the guy in the background trying to put down one of those giant slushy drinks from Fat Tuesday. Enjoy the hangover, pal.

Criss Angel My Kid & My Mom Saw Me Pass Out

3/13/2017 3:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Criss Angel wasn't pulling a publicity stunt when he passed out during his straight jacket act and says the proof is in the audience.

Criss told us his 82-year-old mom and his 3-year-old son were front and center at Friday night's Mindfreak Live! show in Vegas when his trick went horribly wrong. He insists he'd never do anything to scare them, especially his son who's battling leukemia.

As for what caused him to pass out ... Criss has his theory.

Criss Angel was rushed to a Vegas ER Friday after passing out during a straight jacket act.

The famous illusionist was performing for his Mindfreak Live! gig Friday night at the Luxor Hotel, where eyewitnesses say the show was canceled 10 minutes into the opening act ... after Criss dangled upside down in a straight jacket and attempted to escape.

After spinning in vain for about 2 minutes, he was quickly lowered down and the curtain closed onstage. We're told he appeared unconscious as guests were ushered out. 

Criss was taken to Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center's emergency room about 4 miles away, and we're told he was discharged the same night. A source tells us he "walked out of here" sometime before 10 PM. 

We've reached out to reps at Luxor for more details on what went wrong during Criss's act ... so far, no word back. 

Tyga Loses Court Battle for Overclubbing in Vegas

3/7/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0306-tyga-tmz-02Tyga was just ordered to pay the steepest cover charge EVER for club-hopping in Vegas ... all because he flaked on a lawsuit.

Tyga got hit for nearly $65,000 in a case where a promoter sued him for allegedly breaking a performance contract. It wasn't hard for the promoter to win ... Tyga never showed up in court.

We broke the story ... Z Entertainment claimed Tyga had signed on with them in 2015 to perform at a show in Vegas, also promising not to perform at competing clubs around the same time frame.

Lo and behold they say Tyga did just that ... not to mention screwing them by being a no-show the year before at another gig.

Seems Tyga has even bigger legal fish to fry in 2017.

Sean Kingston Cuffed By Cops After Migos Fight

2/22/2017 6:13 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sean Kingston was cuffed by Vegas cops shortly after he was allegedly beaten up bad by Migos.

As we reported, Sean got into verbal altercation with Migos at the Sands Expo and Convention Center Tuesday afternoon and the group allegedly pummeled him to the ground. We're told someone in Sean's camp fired a shot in the air but no one was hit.

Sean bolted from the scene, as did Migos. The video (above) shows cops questioning Sean and a passenger after cops stopped his car. We're told he was questioned but not arrested.

Earlier in the day, it was all kumbaya between Sean and Migos at the Venetian.

Sean Kingston Beaten By Migos Shot Fired

2/21/2017 8:29 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-migos-sean-kingston-3CSean Kingston was beaten up badly Tuesday and people on scene say Migos was the culprit ... but the story is bizarre and the group is not wanted by cops, at least not yet.

Law enforcement sources tell us it went down late afternoon at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Vegas. We're told Kingston and the guys from Migos got into it over an argument involving Soulja Boy and the 3 members of Migos beat Sean badly, allegedly kicking him and stomping on his head.

Law enforcement tells us someone from Sean's camp pulled out a gun and fired once, but didn't hit anyone. That person was detained by security and turned over to the Vegas PD.

By the time cops arrived both Sean and Migos had left. A short time later Sean was pulled over for a traffic stop and became "semi-cooperative," though he did not name names.

We're told police want to speak with Migos, but they are quick to add members of the group are not "wanted" by cops.

Chris Brown I'm Going Back to Vegas, Baby! Buries Hatchet with Drai's

2/16/2017 2:05 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0216-chris-brown-tmz-2Chris Brown has his Las Vegas residency back at Drai's after the famous club banned him last year ... TMZ has learned.

A source connected to Drai's tells us Chris had a heart-to-heart recently with the management team and squashed their beef. We're told a mutual friend set up the meeting -- both sides wanted to move forward because there's a lot of money at stake.

Chris has been a huge draw at Drai's since starting a residency there in 2015.

We broke the story ... the relationship fell apart when Chris blasted Drai's last summer, accusing staffers of being racist, and it cost him the gig there.

A Drai's rep tells us, "We both value the relationship and look forward to having Chris back in front of his fans again." His first show is set for March 18 ... smack in the middle of March Madness and St. Patty's Day weekend. 

Like we said ... a LOT of money.

EXCLUSIVE

Charles Barkley is proving to LeBron James he's got NO money problems in Vegas anymore -- ballin' out with more than $100k in chips at a blackjack table in Vegas this weekend ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Barkley was in a high stakes room at Mandalay Bay with a giant stack in front of him. A casino employee tells us the "chocolate" chips are $5k (near drink) and the yellow $1k.

It appears he has roughly $129,000 in chips ... not bad.

0206-charles-barkley-casino-chips-sub-TMZSPORTS-01

We're told Barkley was playing $30,000 hands -- but it's unclear if he left up or down.

It's interesting timing considering just last week LeBron called out Barkley for having "unpaid debts in Vegas" stemming from his legendary gambling habit.

Barkley responded in a radio interview ... saying, "I did pay my debt."

Bottom line -- Sir Chuck has a ton of money ... and still loves to push his luck.

Raiders Players Pumped for Nevada Tax Cuts ... Says Malcolm Smith

1/21/2017 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

How do the Oakland Raiders players feel about the possible (likely) move to Vegas?

They're stoked about the FORTUNE they'll save on state income tax!!

We spoke with Raiders linebacker Malcom Smith (the MVP of Super Bowl XLVIII) who says a bunch of players are already talking about financial implications of a move to Nevada. 

FYI, California has the highest state income tax ... Nevada has the lowest! 

Plus, as Smith points out ... cost of living is WAYYYY cheaper in Vegas than in the Bay Area. 

As for concerns about Vegas temptations, Smith says it ain't a problem for the home team ... it's the visitors who should be worried. 

Tim Brown 'Concerned' About Vegas Temptations ... for Raiders Players

1/19/2017 3:40 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Raiders legend Tim Brown says he's pumped for the team to move to Las Vegas ... but admits he's concerned about some of the players getting too caught up in the Sin City lifestyle.

The Hall of Famer joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs Thursday night on FS1) and said he voiced his concerns to Raiders management ... but ultimately realized there's temptation in EVERY city.

"When we were in L.A., we found ways to get into trouble, right? And when you're in Oakland, you find ways to get in trouble. So I think [the Raiders] whole thing is, 'Hey, look, if guys are looking for trouble, no matter what city they're in, they're gonna find the trouble.'"

Tim says the situation might require hiring people to "babysit" some of the players but "hopefully this team will be mature enough to handle the situation."

By the way, that IS Pierre Garcon in the shot -- he's co-hosting the show tonight and he's awesome!

Tyson Beckford Coming to the Stage ... I'm Full Time at Chippendales!

1/19/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0118-tyson-beckford-tmz-01Tyson Beckford will be bumping and grinding more than usual on the Vegas Strip because he's coming back for more than 3 months at Chippendales ... TMZ has learned.

We're told ticket sales broke records when Tyson did a 3 week guest appearance 2 years ago, so he struck a deal to return ... but things will be a little different.

He'll be in more numbers and several dances will be custom choreographed for him, as opposed to last time when he was just joining the ensemble on stripteases.

Tyson's residency starts March 30, but word is he'll stay on until the end of summer, possibly longer.

Hehe ... longer.
