Miley Cyrus

My Nipples

Gotta Be Free

12/28/2014 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1228-miley-cyrus-topless-INSTAGRAM-01Miley Cyrus did not suffer a nip slip ... instead she offered a nip TIP to the world -- as in, GET YER YA YAS OUT -- and it instantly took over the Internet. 

Miley showed out for the "Free the Nipple" campaign by posting a topless Instagram with a caption taunting people to report her whappers-gone-wild. Surprisingly, it stayed up much longer than celeb nudes usually do. We're guessing Instagram takes holidays off too.  

Miley also posted a series of mocked up -- and disturbing -- images of topless Hannah Montana to push the message ... which has also been touted by Chelsea Handler, Rumor and Scout Willis, and Cara Delevingne.

Miley's social media game is on point.

EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift Birthday PartyNot everybody was hatin' on Taylor Swift's celeb-crammed 25TH b-day bash in NYC -- a toy company just made a crap ton of money off it thanks to Justin Timberlake.

Turns out the takeaway from Taylor's now famous IG shot -- with Beyonce, Jay Z, Sam Smith, Haim, and JT -- was the poop emoji mask on Justin.

The people who make JT's turd face say they've seen a huge spike in sales since Taylor posted the shot. A rep for BigMouth Inc. tells TMZ they've seen a 315% increase and are almost sold out.

So, yeah ... #2 is now #1 on the charts.

Dan Bilzerian Sued

Roof-Tossed Porn Star ...

He Should've Known I Can't Fly

12/16/2014 6:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dan Bilzerian Throws Porn Star Off Roof It's officially open season on Instagram playboy Dan Bilzerian -- he's been hit with his 2nd lawsuit in a week ... this time from the porn star he tossed off a roof and into a pool.

Janice Griffith just filed the suit against Bilzerian and Hustler magazine for the stunt she says left her with a broken foot. In her suit, Janice says Huster hired her to do a photoshoot at Dan's home back in April ... which would show off his "extravagant lifestyle."

She says the porn star-pool toss was suggested by Bilzerian and Hustler -- and she was assured it would be safe. She says they should've known she didn't have the skills to pull off the stunt ... based on her "experiences and qualifications." Translation: porn stars can't fly, dummy.

According to the suit, after the stunt went awry ... she was offered booze to ease her pain. She doesn't say if she accepted.

Afterward, Janice says she reached out to Bilzerian and his attorney -- and got back a letter from them she calls "unprofessional." Gotta say ... It was a pretty epic retort.

Bilzerian got sued last week by a chick he kicked in LIV Nightclub in Miami.

Janice is suing for unspecified damages and lost wages. Apparently the broken-foot-fetish market isn't booming.

doesn't like to share the spotlight with anyone, even her own daughter. 

KK posted a selfie Sunday night that rather conspicuously cuts off the face of North West ... and the move did not go unnoticed.

Comments on the photo from some of Kim's 23 million followers included:

-- "Seriously you can't even let your own child in a picture with you #selfishness"
-- "Lmao if she loved her child she wouldnt have cropped out the pic"
-- "Narcissism at it's finest"
-- "crop game strongggg, poor North your mom would rather showoff a brick wall than you.....SHAME!!!"

In all fairness, that is a lovely wall.

EXCLUSIVE

Vicki Gunvalson Topless
"Real Housewives of Orange County" star Vicki Gunvalson's topless Instagram photo was inadvertent ... so she claims.

Vicki posted a photo Thursday AM, thanking Bravo TV for her Christmas Present  -- a nice set of headphones.  


In the Dept. of Obvious ... even a casual look at the pic reveals Vicki was naked when she pressed the red button. She, however, says she never saw her boobs before posting the photo.

Vicki tells us she was distracted, getting ready for work.

The question ... are you buying what she's selling?

For Face Kick

EXCLUSIVE

Dan Bilzerian Kicked Woman
Dan Bilzerian is about to get a kick in the face himself ... because cops are investigating him for criminal battery ... TMZ has learned.

Model Vanessa Castano filed a police report after Bilzerian kicked her in the face Saturday night at LIV nightclub in Miami Beach. 

If you haven't seen it already ... check it out. Bilzerian claims he kicked her because he was trying to help another woman on stage and Castano was blocking him ... not a great story for him.  

When cops arrived at the club Bilzerian had already left, and Castano declined to file a report. But she had a change of heart and filled out the paperwork Sunday night.

Castano claims she suffered a laceration on her right eye and an abrasion on her lower back.

Chris Brown

Apologizes to Karrueche

'I Love Hard' and Hate Hard

breaking news

12085_chris_brown_apalogy_instagram
Chris Brown is remorseful over his Karrueche attack and -- without specifically saying it -- seems to be explaining his anger issues that go way back to Rihanna.

CB put his on-again/off-again GF Karrueche Tran on blast over the weekend ... insinuating she cheated with Drake and saying,"F*** that b****!"

120814_chris_brown_launch
In his apology, Brown accurately states that "being young and dumb is one of my strong suits" and that he is simply guilty of loving too hard. But then he offers the flip side ... that he reacts "impulsively when I'm hurt at times."

He went on to say that everyone knows he really loves Karrueche and he doesn't care how he comes across to the public ... "because I'm still gonna be the best at what I do. I just want baby girl to know I apologize."

Fool me once ...

Rihanna Veterans Day Pic
Rihanna
's patriotic gesture to U.S. troops has backfired over the picture she used to make her point ... and now the company that owns the pic has a novel way she can make good.

Coronet Diamonds created the image and posted it on its website November 11 -- Veteran's Day. Apparently the famous Barbadian liked it so much ... she posted it on her Instagram, and Twitter, but she kind of deceived her followers by Photoshopping herself into the image and then removing the jewelry company's hashtag.

So we found out Coronet has sent Rihanna a cease and desist letter. They'll settle for an apology on Rihanna's social media platforms ... an apology that makes it clear Coronet created the image.

Now let's talk about what Coronet really wants. It wants some free advertising ... which they will get in a big way with Rihanna's 142 MILLION followers.

Coronet is smart. The end.

Giant Douchemobile Attracts Chicks ...

But Also Cops

12/4/2014 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dan Bilzerian Pulled OverThe Most Interesting Man on Instagram got nailed by cops who found Dan Bilzerian's tricked out 6x6 off-road truck a little too interesting to be street legal.

Bilzerian got pulled over by a LA. County Sheriff's deputy the other day ... on his way to catch a private jet to Miami for Art Basel. The ticket? DWD -- driving while douchey. 

Okay, that's not entirely accurate -- he was actually nailed for having off-road lighting on his massive customized Mercedes G Wagon ... which is a no-no when driving ON roads. 

We're told it's a $300 fix-it ticket -- and we're pretty sure Dan will pay that everyday. As long as the SUV (a BRABUS B63S 6x6 700) keeps helping him pull chicks like it did in Hollywood the other night.

Charles Barkley

I'll Never Do Social Media

'I Don't Wanna Talk to Those Idiots'

12/3/2014 6:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

120214_charles_barkley_launchThere's a reason you've never seen an official Charles Barkley twitter handle ... or Instagram ... or Vine ... because Sir Charles tells us, "I don't want to talk to those idiots."

Barkley says he is 100% AGAINST joining any social media platform ... explaining, "I don't feel the need to talk to every idiot in America."

The "Inside the NBA" star was in NYC when he made the proclamation ... after we asked about criticism he'd been taking for his recent comments on Ferguson ... when he said the people who were looting are "not real black people, those are scumbags."

"I cant worry what everybody think about me," Barkley says ... "Everybody has their own opinion."

Paris Hilton

Death Threats

By Anti-Semitic Crazy Man

12/2/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1201-paris-hilton-rick-hilton-tmz-01
A crazy anti-Semitic man -- who believes Paris Hilton is Jewish -- has threatened to kill her, and we've learned the LAPD is after him.

Cops just got a search warrant  allowing them to track down the Instagram and Facebook account of someone who is making overt threats against Paris and her dad, Rick Hilton.

In one post, the man writes to Rick, "one month and she's dead, she's never coming home." 

The man says in another post, "Invite [Paris] to the match so we can gang raper her ass hahahahahaha." And then he threatens, "I'll beat u and that bitch to unconscious."

The guy clearly thinks the Hiltons are Jewish -- which they are not. He wrote, "KILL JEWS FOR FUN," and "I know ur Jew family gives nothing" ... an obtuse accusation that the Hiltons are cheap.

Our law enforcement sources say cops think they know who's making the threats, but they need the Facebook and Instagram verification before they can make an arrest.
