11/10/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Who would've guessed Katt Williams would turn out to be the world's greatest boyfriend ... in addition to showering his gf, Hazel-E, with extravagant gifts, Katt's also cool with other men rubbing their junk all over his gal.

Hazel-E hit the popular Sin City striptease Thunder From Down Under over the weekend and from the looks of the video, really weathered the storm.

Katt was nowhere in sight because he's filming ... miles away in Atlanta. He's obviously down for the double play considering there's a lot Hazel could lose

Lakers' Lou Williams Victim In Vegas Battery ... Cops Say

11/8/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

L.A. Lakers player Lou Williams was NOT the aggressor in a Vegas fight that landed him in handcuffs, he was the VICTIM ... this according to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Williams was placed in handcuffs and slammed up against a police car in front of a Vegas casino in September -- while trying to tell cops he did nothing wrong. 

Now, the LVMPD tells us ... cops had responded to a call about a fight at that location -- and when they arrived, the situation was heated, and they detained Williams while they investigated. 

A short time later, cops say they learned Williams was in fact a victim -- so they let him go. Williams told police he did NOT want to press charges. 

A rep for Williams had no comment. 

Lakers' Lou Williams Cuffed In Vegas 'I Did Nothing Wrong'

11/6/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports has obtained footage of Lakers guard Lou Williams handcuffed by police and slammed up against a cop car in front of a casino in Vegas ... but the NBA player insists he did NOTHING wrong. 

We've learned ... Williams was detained in front of The Cromwell hotel and casino on the Vegas strip in the early hours of September 13th ... after the Mayweather vs. Berto fight. 

Witnesses at the scene tell us, Williams was involved in an altercation with "a large man" -- and cops rushed in to break it up. We're told Williams adamantly denies being involved in a fight. 

Williams was handcuffed and slammed up against a police car -- but the Las Vegas Metro Police Department tell us they have NO RECORD showing Williams was formally arrested that night. 

We spoke with Lou's agent Wallace Prather III who tells us, "Apparently there was an issue that [Lou] wasn't involved in, which is why they didn't arrest him."

"If Lou was fighting in public in Las Vegas they would have arrested his ass ... he wasn't fighting anyone."

Eventually, cops released the cuffs and Williams was sent on his way. 

We reached out to the LVMPD for an explanation -- but we haven't gotten one yet. 

Siegfried and Roy Here, Kitty Kitty ...

10/23/2015 1:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1023-siegfried-roy-pcn-01Siegfried and Roy shook off any of the jitters you might expect them to have -- and snuggled up to a new arrival at The Mirage ... a baby tiger.

The magic duo bottle fed the little big cat in Vegas on Thursday ... as they returned to the resort where they famously performed for years, and where Roy was nearly killed during a tiger attack.

Clearly, no hard feelings. Plus, it's impossible to resist adorable baby tigers.

We do NOT smell comeback, but still a cool moment.

Lamar Odom Business Booming at Love Ranch

10/19/2015 3:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-love-ranch-getty-03Lamar Odom's near-death experience has intrigued so many people, the Love Ranch brothel now has a month-long waiting list.

Ranch owner Dennis Hof tells TMZ, since his staff placed the 911 call last Tuesday, business has tripled. The average number of customers pre-Lamar averaged around 20 Johns a day.

Hof says in the last week, the brothel has attracted an average of 75 men a day.  

Hof says the real cache is the room Lamar had booked. There's now a 1 month waiting list for the suite, and 16 want the room for at least one overnight stay. 

And get this ... if anyone pays more than $500 while they're at the Ranch, whenever possible Hof will show them the room.


Britney Spears Help, I'm About to Flash Everyone!

10/19/2015 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears has the hardest working dancers/pit crew on the Vegas strip ... and you've gotta see how they rallied to keep her ass from falling out onstage.

Brit was performing Saturday night at Planet Hollywood when something came unhooked, or ripped, in the back of her damn near see-through bodysuit. She realized it right away, and signaled backstage for help -- but the best part is, she never stopped performing!

Her team was pretty amazing ... stitching her up while she continued dancing and singing.

Well, dancing anyway.


Ty Lawson Accused of Vegas Hotel Attack ...NBA Star Says BS

10/14/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1013_ty-lawson_TMZThe eye in the sky don't lie ... and it seems to have exonerated NBA star Ty Lawson -- who was accused of punching a security guard at the Wynn hotel in Vegas ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Here's what we know ... Lawson was named in a police report filed by 25-year-old Kyle Gardener -- who says Wynn management ordered him to stop Lawson from entering the casino on one of those motorized scooter board thingies on August 30th.  

But in the report, Gardener says the Houston Rockets star blew him off, continued to scooter into the casino -- all while Ty's entourage shouted various threats his way.

Moments later, Gardener claims Lawson pulled a fistful of cash out of his pocket -- and said, "I make money you broke bitch, I'll kill you and your family. I got people believe me." 

Gardener says Lawson then struck him in the right side of his forehead and left the building. 

Gardener says he informed Wynn management and the LVMPD -- and says he's on medication as a result of injuries sustained from the incident. 

But get this ... a rep for the LVMPD says cops pulled surveillance footage from the casino and say the video does NOT show Lawson ever striking the guard -- so the case was closed.  

Ty's rep, Happy Walters, reinforced the point -- saying straight up, "Ty didn't hit anyone."

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.

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.
