#TheDress

Blue/Black, White/Gold

Sales are Through the Roof!!!

2/27/2015 6:49 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0227-black-blue-dress-01
The company behind #TheDress has put the debate to bed -- it's blue and black -- and the hubbub has done wonders for its business ... thanks to the hashtag hysteria.  

#TheDress phenomenon began after a woman posted a photo of her mother's dress for her wedding ... asking people to ID the color. From there ... EXPLOSION ... with the likes of Justin Bieber (blue and black), Kim Kardashian (white and gold), and Taylor Swift (blue and black) all weighing in.

A rep for the company that makes the dress, Roman Originals, tells TMZ the dress is blue and black, but it also comes in pink and black, white and black and red and black. There isn't a white and gold option yet ... but Roman is looking to add it to the line because of all the commotion. 

As for business, Roman Originals says sales are up 347%

And here you thought a few escaped llamas would be the weirdest thing to happen on the Internet this week.

Kim Kardashian

Nothing Says 'Thank You'

Like My Ass in a Thong

2/26/2015 2:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0226_kim_kardashian_ass_instagramMajor props to Kim Kardashian's Instagram minions -- because without them ... you wouldn't be staring at her bare ass cheeks right now. 

Kim uploaded a shot of herself sporting a thong -- ass-side up, of course -- to her Instagram account to celebrate reaching 27 million followers. 

For what it's worth ... it appears to be a throwback pic, since Kim was in London Wednesday night (for the Brit Awards) -- we're doubting she packed swimwear.

There. Don't say she never did anything for you.

Terrence Howard

My Ex Is Hurling Death Threats

LAPD Investigates

2/18/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Terrence Howard Ex Wife Death Threats"Empire" star Terrence Howard doesn't just have a TV ex-wife threatening him, he has a real life one he says is targeting him for death ... and the LAPD is on the case.

TMZ has obtained a search warrant to determine if Michelle Ghent is behind a barrage of Instagram threats, including, "I'm watching you! I'm coming for ... LOL. You two won't live to see your children." The "you two" appears to refer to Terrence and his new wife.

0217_terrence-howard-instagram_splitAnother Instagram post warns his wife, "Your husband is cheating on you! Just thought you should know." The message was sent with a photo of Terrence and another woman.

And there's this ... there's a pic of a pill bottle that belonged to Terrence with the caption, "Oh dear, look what I found. Do hope you refilled. It's one of the things you can't leave home without."

The LAPD claims in the search warrant affidavit, there's reason to believe Michelle is behind the postings. One reason ... the Instagram accounts have no followers except for her. 

The LAPD got a judge to sign the warrant and they have gone on the hunt to find out if she's behind it.

Terrence says he's been getting nasty posts for a year ... and he filed a police report because he believes she's the culprit.

Michelle tells TMZ, she did not send the messages and claims the LAPD has talked to her and she's no longer a suspect. 

The LAPD says it's still an open investigation.

'Entourage' Creator

Rescued From Middle of Nowhere

By Big-Time Producer

2/17/2015 10:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Entourage Creator CarWhere the hell's Turtle when ya need him? "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin got stranded in the desert and had to use social media to find a knight in shining armor ... in the form of "Rambo" movie producer.

Ellin's Mercedes suffered a flat tire in the middle of the desert Sunday afternoon between Palm Springs and Los Angeles. With no spare tire, and AAA only willing to tow him seven miles, Ellin was SOL. 

So he posted a photo of the bum wheel on Instagram and in a twist of fate, Randall Emmett -- who has produced movies like "Lone Survivor," "2 Guns," and the last "Rambo" flick -- happened to see the post and happened to also be driving back from Palm Springs ... so he decided to scoop up Ellin and his fiancée in his sick Rolls-Royce.

Emmett tells TMZ, "We were all in shock that the timing worked out and we were mostly blown away by the power of social media. We couldn’t believe it."   

FYI -- Ellin's car is still in the desert, waiting to be towed. We smell a road trip for Turtle.

Kobe Bryant

Breaks Out the Chopper

... For Valentine's Day

2/16/2015 7:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0216-kobe-bryant-helicopter-instagramHis rotator is still jacked up, but his rotors are doing just fine -- which is why Kobe Bryant broke out the helicopter for a special Valentine's Day date with his wife Vanessa

The two took to the skies for a little romantic V-Day getaway over the weekend ... and made sure to take a few mid-flight selfies along the way.  

Sidenote -- Vanessa's earrings ... damn. 

Legend has it, Kobe has been using the 'copter for years to go from his home in Orange County to the Staples Center in L.A. so he can beat freeway traffic.  

But with his season over, it's good to see Kobe's still finding use for his favorite method of travel.

Abigail Ratchford

My 'Fifty Shades' Striptease

Got 86'd By Prince

2/13/2015 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

021215_abigail_ratchford_launch_v2The world is so cold and unfair, and Prince made it that way ... by forcing model Abigail Ratchford to remove her nearly naked Valentine's striptease from Instagram. 

Ratchford pulled out off all the stops for a "Fifty Shades of Grey" style Valentine's Day striptease -- which is awesome -- but unfortunately she set it to Prince's 1991 hit "Gett Off."

It's ridiculously hot, but nobody uses Prince but Prince. Sources close to Abigail tell us his label, NPG Records hunted her down and demanded the video come down immediately.

Prince notoriously scrubs unauthorized use of his music from the 'net ... and apparently there's no "smoking hot" exception. Still, 30,000 people LIKED the clip before its demise.

Abigail reposted the vid with a different song -- Janet Jackson's "Feedback" ... but it's just not the same.

Seriously, Prince ... we thought you, of all people, would appreciate a "Sexy M.F."

Kim Kardashian

Spontaneous Yeezys Plug

... Totally Set Up

2/11/2015 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian Yeezy PicClever girl Kim Kardashian would love us to believe she's no poser -- but the pic she posted of herself in front of Kanye West's new shoe display was the exact opposite of casual and impromptu.

What Kim's Instagram pic outside the Adidas store in SoHo Tuesday failed to show was her security guard shooing away fans ... so she could get the perfect "random" shot to shill her hubby's new line of Yeezy kicks. 

Not sure why she didn't use the pic with the woman and her Marshalls bag ... but we'll respect her decision ... as a true artist.

Gotta stand by your man's brand.

Chelsea Handler

My Boobs Bring Peace ...

To The Middle East

1/29/2015 12:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
0129-caption-chelsea-handler-camel-instagram
Chelsea Handler believes the God to whom you pray doesn't matter ... one thing's universal ... men of all faiths can appreciate a nice rack. 

Handler has two things that can bring Jews and Muslims together and they're both on her chest ... she posted the topless Instagram pic -- with Star of David pasties -- while vacationing Wednesday in Israel.

This isn't her girl's first rodeo -- she swapped the camel for a horse and out-chested Vladimir Putin -- and pants also seem optional.

She's right though, you don't need to be topless for peace ... but it doesn't hurt to try.
