Flames shot up from the roof of the hotel/casino, which created chaos on the Strip. The main artery was shut down as the Fire Dept. struggled to contain the blaze.   

People inside the hotel were evacuated, but no injuries ... at least none that were reported.

The fire became the biggest show in town, as tourists gawked at the scene.

The best buds hit up Encore Beach Club on Saturday and turnt up in the DJ booth with David Guetta while 8 hot bottle service servers sprayed the bubbly.

Britney Spears 'Bachelorette' Star is My Slave (Wait, What's Your Name?)

4/6/2017 7:04 AM PDT

Britney Spears might be taken but that's not stopping her from picking famous, freshly single bachelors out of the crowd at her Las Vegas show.

"Bachelor in Paradise" star Josh Murray, who also won Andi Dorfman's 'Bachelorette' season, got the "Slave 4 U" serenade from Brit at her Wednesday night concert. It's a part of the act ... Brit picks someone in the crowd, dresses 'em up in straps and makes 'em dance.  

Lance Bass has done it, but doesn't look like Brit knew she had a celeb onstage ... based on what she says to him at the end of the routine.

It's okay, Josh. Not everyone watches.

Channing Tatum Grills Vegas 'Magic Mike Live' Dancers

4/5/2017 10:33 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The "Magic Mike Live" cast doesn't need more meat on their bones, but got some anyway ... courtesy of Channing Tatum, who grilled for the guys on their day off.

The live stage version of the movie is in previews in Sin City, and the guys have been rehearsing nonstop. Channing's not in it, but has been there consulting, and decided to reward the cast with a family-style BBQ.

We're told the party was thrown at the $5 million Airbnb crib that Channing's been staying outside of Vegas for free. It's in the same ritzy hood as Wayne Newton’s famous estate.

Looks like the guys kept their shirts on for most of the party. Savin' it for the stage, we guess.

Jennifer Lopez Sued Over Custom Hoverboards

EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Lopez got some fancy new wheels -- custom hoverboards -- for her Vegas show, but forgot to keep her end of the bargain ... according to the company that made the gear.

Sidekick Group Corp says it shipped out 42 hoverboards for J Lo and her dancers to use in her "All I Have" show at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas. The company says it didn't charge cash, but their signed contract did require Jennifer to do a few things in return.

According to the lawsuit just filed ... Jenny was supposed to do promotional posts for Sidekick on Instagram or Twitter, once every 3 months. Sidekick says she only posted once, and later deleted it.

The company says it's out $54,390 for the boards, which it says were customized for the show. It's suing to get back that investment, plus a few more bucks.

Sidekick threatened to sue Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman a year ago, claiming he also reneged on a promotional deal. 

We've reached out to J Lo's camp, but haven't heard back yet.

Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis says he's already had talks with team officials about the dangers of Sin City and plans to work with players to keep them out of trouble in their new home. 

Moments after the Raiders got team owner approval to move from Oakland to Vegas, Mark spoke with reporters, including FOX 11's Liz Habib ... and was asked about Brandon Marshall's concerns with an NFL team in Vegas. 

The NY Giants WR previously told TMZ Sports the idea of young guys with lots of money in Vegas sounds like a bad idea. 

Davis says he's talked about it with other Raiders honchos and said, "There are things that we'll be doing" to help protect his guys. 

Davis was also asked if his legendary father, Al Davis, liked Las Vegas and why -- his answer is pretty funny.

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.

6:15 PM PT -- We're told Criss will perform his Mindfreak Live! show tonight at the Luxor Hotel in Vegas as scheduled. However, it is still unclear if he will do the straight jacket act. 

2:34 PM PT -- A rep for Criss tells TMZ  he did in fact lose consciousness Friday night during his straight jacket act and was taken to the hospital for evaluation, where he was released. He's undergoing additional testing Saturday to see if he can perform for tonight's show. 

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

Tyga 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

Sean 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

Chris 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.
