Breaking News

Michelle Wie's callin' it a season ... 'cause her hand is COMPLETELY JACKED.

The superstar golfer announced she had surgery Thursday to fix a right hand that not only had a small avulsion fracture in it ... but also had bone spurring AND nerve entrapment.

The good news ... Wie says the surgery should fix the pain she's been dealing with FOR MONTHS.

"It’s been disheartening dealing with pain in my hand all year but hopefully I am finally on the path to being and STAYING pain free!" Wie said.

Michelle tried to stick out the season ... saying she even got 3 cortisone injections -- but it just became too much.

Wie says her season's now over ... but rehab and a big 2019 are comin'.

"I cannot wait to start my rehab so that I can come back stronger and healthier than ever."

She also quoted an inspirational lyric from a John Mayer song. It's from this song. Enjoy ... 

Oscar De La Hoya Claps Back at Mayweather 'We Don't Hit Women'

10/18/2018 1:44 PM PDT
Breaking News

The feud between Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather is getting extremely personal -- and nasty -- with Oscar now calling out Floyd's domestic violence conviction to humiliate him. 

Floyd went after Oscar earlier Thursday -- posting an old photo of De La Hoya wearing fishnet stockings and heels -- and saying, "I fought her and her name is Oscar 'Golden Girl' Dela Hoya."

Floyd then implored his fans on social media to "leave the most disrespectful caption you can think of" about Oscar.

Now, Oscar is firing back ... saying, "Hey, [Canelo Alvarez] someone is salty about your record breaking contract with @dazn_usa. Good thing we will never resort to hitting women."

He added some hashtags -- "#DomesticAbuser #DomesticViolence #Salty #antidomesticviolence #FloydMayweather #SaltyFloyd #FloydSaltyMayweather #whyyoumad."

Of course, Floyd was convicted of domestic violence in 2011 stemming from an incident where he attacked the mother of his children. He cut a plea deal and served jail time. 

Unclear what Floyd's endgame is in regards to the feud with Oscar and Canelo -- since it seems he's already 86'd the idea of a rematch with Canelo

Maybe these guys just don't like each other. 

Cardi B 'Let Me Live!!!' Rants About Baby Pics, Social Media & TMZ

10/17/2018 1:37 PM PDT
Breaking News

Cardi B is getting a ton of stuff off her chest ... railing on social media, baby pics and a TMZ post about her new music. 

Cardi was hot as fish grease when she hopped on IG live -- taking issue with our story about whether she's going to diss Nicki Minaj on some new music she's recording.

She's also pissed about the photos of her and baby Kulture on a Miami hotel balcony. And, she's pissed because she claims that photogs were stalking her. For the record, we weren't involved in taking those pictures -- but they did come to us, and we did post them. 

While unloading -- for nearly an hour from the backseat of her ride -- she said celebrities didn't sign up for this, but insisted she could handle it ... 'cause she's a "tough bitch."

She also ripped into fan blogs, some she's had to block, and compared the music industry to the strip club biz. She said stripping is exactly like being a rapper in many ways, but also made it clear ... "I don't want to go back to the strip club!"

And, then there was the sex talk ... LOTS and LOTS of sex talk. Cardi shared in graphic detail why she knows Offset's never leaving her. In a nutshell, "Cardi B got that fat bitch p***y." And, that's the tamest thing she said about her sexual skills.

As for why she had to share all this -- "I'm a Libra so I overthink everything."

Taylor Swift Vote Early!!! It's Written All Over My Toes

10/17/2018 7:53 AM PDT

Taylor Swift is back on election day soapbox, and this time she's got a new message -- start voting now ... if you can.

Taylor urged her fans Wednesday morning to follow in her footsteps and learn more about the early voting process. She says, "Something I wish I knew about when I was 18 and voting for the first time: EARLY VOTING. It makes it so quick and easy to go and cast your vote before November 6."

Ten years later, T-Swift's got it all figured out. She points out early voting opens today in Tennessee, her home state. And just to prove she's a serious patriot, Taylor included a pic of her red, white, and blue toenails. 'Merica!!!

Taylor had an enormous impact on the election a couple weeks ago when she -- for the first time -- shared her political views. She revealed who she was supporting for Congress in Tennessee, and encouraged everyone, regardless of party affiliation, to vote.

Voter registration increased nationally by hundreds of thousands immediately after that.

Teresa Giudice Breaks Silence on Joe's Deportation With Lady Liberty Crying

10/14/2018 7:07 PM PDT

Teresa Giudice seems to have broken her silence in the wake of her husband being ordered to be deported after prison ... and it looks like she (and Lady Liberty) are heartbroken. 

The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star shared a photo on Instagram Sunday depicting the Statue of Liberty holding its face and apparently crying. She captioned the pic with a ton of praying hand emojis -- so it's pretty clear she's referencing Joe

🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

A post shared by Teresa Giudice ® (@teresagiudice) on

This is the first post she's added to her IG since a judge ordered that Joe be deported back to Italy once he's finished with his stint behind bars. He's more than halfway done serving his 41-month prison sentence for conspiracy to commit wire and bankruptcy fraud.

As we reported ... Teresa has no plans as of now to relocate her family to Italy once Joe is deported, fearing the culture shock of an international move would do more harm than good to their 4 kids.

While some of Teresa's 'RHONJ' costars feel like she might be shedding crocodile tears over Joe's inevitable fate ... her own words (or pictures, more like) speak for themselves here.

Lil Xan Disturbing Video Shows Gun Threat ... That Canceled Concert

10/12/2018 11:37 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The person who threatened to shoot Lil Xan at his St. Louis concert -- forcing its cancellation -- made his intentions well known in a disturbing video he posted on social media.

The guy who made the threat is a so-called artist/producer in St. Louis who earlier this week posted a clip spraying bullets into a lake and calling out Xan. He captioned the video, "Lil Xan said he wants a fade with me. I'M COMING TO YO OWN SHOW TO SMACK TF OUT OF YOU TOMORROW OCT 10 AT @thepageantstl."

On the day of the concert, the same guy posted a picture while holding what looks like 3 AK-47s with the caption, "hi Lil Xan see ya later at your show." TMZ broke the story ... The Pageant (where the concert was to be held) and promoters canceled the show after the images surfaced. It appears Xan has beef with the guy in the video over money owed. 

We reached out to the St. Louis PD who tells us they're not investigating the threats because no one from the venue has made a report about the incident.

A rep for Lil Xan tells TMZ, "It is our top priority, including the promoters and venue to ensure safety at every show. This was an old situation that has been taken care of internally. There is no reason to fear safety at any of Lil Xan's shows moving forward."

Cardi B is a woman who knows EXACTLY what she wants ... and if she gets it, her new Lamborghini ain't the only thing she's gonna be riding for her birthday.

The "I Like It" rapper posted this hilarious video Thursday on Instagram to celebrate her 26th birthday. Cardi thanked fans for the good wishes, which she was in need after saying she ate some bad fish that, in her words, left her swollen and looking like Mrs. Puff from Spongebob SquarePants. #LMFAO

Enter Offset.

Selena Gomez 'Emotional Breakdown' in Hospital Now Receiving Mental Health Treatment

10/10/2018 5:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Selena Gomez was hospitalized twice in the last 2 weeks ... and the second time she suffered what sources called an emotional breakdown ... she's now at a mental health facility for treatment.

Multiple sources tell TMZ, the 26-year-old singer was at her Studio City, CA home the last week of September when the first emergency hit. We're told she was despondent and emotional over an alarmingly low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant. Our sources say a family member drove her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. 

We're told Selena was released days later but had to be re-admitted late last week because her low blood cell count persisted, and it threw Selena into a downward emotional spiral.   

Soon after she was admitted she insisted on leaving, but doctors said she couldn't. We're told Selena had "a meltdown" and "freaked out." Selena tried ripping the IV's out of her arm. Several sources called the episode "an emotional breakdown."

We're told Selena is currently at an East Coast psychiatric facility and is receiving dialectical behavior therapy -- DBT. The therapy treats various mental health disorders. Selena has received DBT in the past. 

There have been multiple signs of trouble. There has been a virtual blackout of information regarding Selena for several weeks. 

Selena posted on September 23 she was taking a break from social media ... noting, "Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody's feelings. Obvi."

Before leaving social media, Selena did an Instagram Live answering questions from fans and said depression had consumed her life for 5 years. 

Selena's last public appearance was on September 22 at Jennifer Lopez's Vegas show. There was also a pic floating around of Selena in Newport Beach, CA with a couple fans that was allegedly taken Sept. 27 ... but we're told that pic was actually from March.  

Selena was a target of hateful comments on social media after her ex, Justin Bieber, got engaged to Hailey Baldwin.

Selena did a stint in rehab back in 2014. Last year she underwent a major surgery when she received the kidney transplant.

'Ray Donovan' Actor Pooch Hall Dangerously Recorded His Kids WHILE He Was Driving

10/7/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Ray Donovan" actor Marion "Pooch" Hall put his kids in danger with some questionable behavior behind the wheel ... months before his shocking DUI arrest.

We did some digging and found a video Hall recorded and posted May 11 on Instagram. It shows him joking around with his boys in the backseat and recording them ... but he's doing it WHILE he's driving. The footage is even more unsettling on the heels of Hall's DUI.

TMZ broke the story ... Hall was busted Wednesday night in Burbank, CA when he had his 2-year-old son on his lap, and at the wheel, when he hit 2 parked cars. Cops say Hall's BAC was .25 ... more than 3 times the limit. Witnesses were horrified to see Pooch's child crying in the front seat while the child's car seat was laying uninstalled in the back seat.

In the IG video, you can see one of his kids standing in the back seat clearly not wearing a seat belt. His toddler son is at least in a car seat this time. Hall's older daughter is in the passenger seat. It only looks like she's in the driver's seat because the phone's selfie mode flips the image.

As we first reported ... DCFS opened an investigation after the DUI arrest.

Kanye West Disappears ... From Social Media

10/6/2018 2:51 PM PDT
Breaking News

Kanye West has done it before and now he's done it again ... he's deleted his Twitter and Instagram.

Ye went dark around 1:45 PM PT Saturday without warning or any announcement as to why. However, his social media disappearance comes after a controversial week in which he tweeted that the 13th amendment should be abolished ... which he later clarified, saying he meant it should be amended.

He's also received a ton of backlash for voicing his support of Donald Trump and wearing his red #MAGA hat ... after last week's "Saturday Night Live."

Not saying his knack for landing in hot water because of his social media activity is why his accounts are now down ... but it's a possibility.

There's is another possible explanation, though -- Kanye told us he's traveling to Africa soon to record music and complete his latest album. So, maybe he's on his way and just doesn't want any added distractions.

But, who knows.

Kanye deleted his social media in May 2017 and stayed off for almost a full year until April, but since then he's been pretty active ... especially in spurts.

We'll keep an eye out for a return.

Kim Kardashian Lust Triangle ... From Chanel

10/5/2018 11:48 AM PDT

Kim Kardashian's nearly gone bust ... but she's hanging by a thread.

Kim posted this picture and captioned it "Chanel vintage, lets please be specific." Not really sure what that means, but who the hell cares. The pic no doubt accentuates Kim's assets ... front and center. Talk about wearing the hell outta a sKIMpy bikini. #SorryNotSorry

It's no nip slip but still a win-win ... you head into the weekend with another trademark Kim K reveal.

Best Chanel ad ever?

Cardi B Check Out My New Lambo!!! Offset's the Best Hubby

10/5/2018 9:31 AM PDT

Cardi B's night went from 0 to 100 when she discovered Offset surprised her with a brand new Lamborghini ... and the story behind it is worth more to them than the luxury ride's price tag. 

Cardi can't stop gushing over her husband's romantic and sneaky gesture ... revealing the great lengths Offset went to in order to pull off the surprise. You just gotta watch the video to hear her explain it ... as only she can.   

Long (love) story short -- Offset duped Cardi into thinking he was having a health emergency, and then played it off for a few hours before coming clean with the brand new whip. 

The Lambo Urus, which has a starting cost of $200,000, looks like the perfect family car for CB, Offset and Kulture

Now, if only Cardi could drive ... 

Kelly Rowland Looks, Sings Just Like Gladys Knight ... And It's SPECTACULAR!!!

10/5/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gladys Knight was right ... Kelly Rowland IS the perfect person to play the legendary singer, and TMZ got the video and photos to prove it.

We've obtained the first images of Kelly playing Gladys in the new BET series, "American Soul" ... which chronicles the rise of "Soul Train" creator and iconic host, Don Cornelius. If you didn't know ... Gladys was one of the first singers booked on the hit show.

As you can see from this scene filmed last week in Atlanta ... the resemblance is uncanny -- Kelly's in 2 outfits for the scene she shot with Sinqua Walls, who's playing Don. The video's great too ... Kelly's on the piano with all eyes fixed on her as she delivers a soulful and breathtaking rendition of "Midnight Train to Georgia."

We caught her out Thursday night and she was all smiles when we brought up the iconic role. Talking about how she studied up for the part, she told us about what it's like to step into such big shoes -- but it sounds like she's not letting the nerves get to her.

It's no wonder Gladys gave her seal of approval back in 2016 when she said on Instagram, "It's no secret that I love my @kellyrowland So many people have said that Kelly would be the perfect person to star in my biopic. What do you think, #Knights?! #stunning #kellyrowland."

Best thing to ever happen to Gladys? It's up there.
