Cubs' Jake Arrieta Lose the NLCS? Lose the Beard!

10/23/2017 6:54 AM PDT

Can't have a playoff beard when you're not in the playoffs. 

After the L.A. Dodgers beat up on the Chicago Cubs in the NLCS, pitcher Jake Arrieta decided to axe his October face warmer ... and dammit, he's beautiful. 

Jake's wife Brittany had to show off Arrieta's clean-cut look on social media -- saying, "Well hello there #MyOffseasonBoyfriend."

Can't really give Arrieta too much grief -- he was lights out in the NLCS -- leading the Cubs to their only win during that series. 

Meanwhile, Justin Turner still has his playoff beard. Just sayin' ...

Breaking News

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant let his Instagram fingers go wild Sunday night -- dissing' his teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster while complaining about the team. 

FYI, the Steelers WON on Sunday -- beating the Bengals 29-14 ... but Bryant only caught 1 pass for 3 yards and is clearly pissed he's not getting the ball more. He reportedly requested a trade last week. 

When someone on Instagram told him his WR teammate "[JuJu Smith-Schuster is] better" -- Bryant fired back, "Juju is no where near better than me fool all they need to do is give me what I want and y’all can have juju and who ever else."

JuJu caught 2 passes for 39 yards and a TD in Sunday's victory. 

Moments later, the damage control had already begun ... 

"@juju is the future and got great talent and is going to be one of the best to play the game I want him to get his I just want mines period point blank."

Bryant -- who missed the entire 2016 season due to drug violations -- added, "Ain’t nobody did nothing to get me back I worked my ass off to get myself back with no help and little support period in due time the process will show."

LFO Singer Doctors Successfully Remove Football-Sized Tumor

Exclusive Details

LFO singer Devin Lima has a huge weight lifted off his entire body today, after doctors removed a massive tumor as well as 2 organs -- and his prognosis is good. 

Lima's surgery Thursday was considered a huge success since doctors also thought he might lose his spleen and part of his colon. Lima found out 3 weeks ago the tumor was wrapped around his adrenal gland and pushing against all his organs, even his heart. We're told doctors had to remove a kidney and his adrenal gland during surgery.

They're testing the tumor to make sure it's not cancerous, and should have a pathology report back early next week. We're told Devin will remain at the hospital until then.

Devin was in good spirits post-op, even cracking jokes about the football in his gut with bandmate Brad Fischetti ...

50 Cent Sued You Jacked My Pics To P.I.M.P. Your Crap!!!

EXCLUSIVE

50 Cent jacked a couple photos and plastered them on his social media to pimp himself and one of his products ... so says a photographer in a new suit.

Christopher Pasatieri -- who says he's a professional photographer -- says he photographed 50 Cent and some of his shots ended up on the rapper's Instagram page, each generating over 42,000 likes.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Pasatieri submitted a screen shot of the IG posts that shows Fiddy pimping his SMS Audio headphones and TV show, "Power." Pasatieri says the rapper never licensed the photos or asked for permission to post them on IG.

Pasatieri doesn't say when he shot 50 but it appears it's from a concert in June 2014 at Citi Field where he performed with G-Unit, which is also being sued.

Pasatieri is suing for damages.

We've reached out to 50 Cent, so far no word back.

Pamela Anderson Tearful Goodbye to Hef ... You Gave Me Life!

9/28/2017 7:30 AM PDT

Hugh Hefner held up a piece of paper with Pamela Anderson's name on it, and a heart drawn around it, the last time she saw him ... which Pam revealed during a sobbing farewell to the Playboy founder.

Pam, arguably the most famous Playmate, was crying with her eye makeup running when she posted the message for Hef, saying ... "I am me because of you / You taught me everything important about freedom and respect. Outside of my family / You were the most important person in my life / You gave me my life..."

Pam's October 1989 Playboy cover launched her career, and she became Playmate of the Month in February 1990 -- and she's remained extremely close to Hef ever since.

She says he was in such failing health the last time she visited that Hef didn't want her to see him. As we reported, Hef's condition had seriously deteriorated before his death Wednesday.

Pam thanked the Playboy legend for making the world "a better place. A freeer and sexier place."

Kylie Jenner What Baby Bump???? Downplays Preggo News w/ Body Pics

9/24/2017 1:59 PM PDT

Kylie Jenner appears to wanna throw people off the scent that she's pregnant ... because she just shared some pics that show a barely-there baby bump.

Kylie posted new photos of herself on Instagram Sunday -- the first she's put up since TMZ broke the story that she's preggo with Travis Scott's kid, who he's telling friends is a girl. You can tell she's trying to show off her figure (her belly, specifically) which in these pics looks as good as it always has.

Here's the thing ... we know for a fact she is expecting, regardless of what these photos seem to show or not. In the top photo, she's wearing loose clothes from what looks like her outfit on Friday, so it's hard to get a real good look at the bump here. 

But check out her look from Saturday night in Vegas -- she seems a bit more filled out, and is still rockin' loose mom attire ... similar to the day before. 

Kylie also posted a pic on Sunday of her with her girlfriends in bath robes, where she looks very thin. Hard to tell when this photo was taken, though ... and angles make a huge difference. 

Ex-Lakers Player BURNED By Twerk Queen I Ain't Bangin' You for a Plane Ticket!

9/24/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Lakers player Jordan Hill is getting called out by one of the most famous booty models on the 'Gram -- with Ghetto Barbie claiming Hill tried to fly her out to smash, but she burned him good instead. 

Here's the deal ... Ghetto Barbie and 'Love and Hip Hop' star Jhonni Blaze appeared on "Raq Rants" where they talked about some of their NBA crushes. 

Blaze shouted out Hill as her crush -- and that's when Ghetto Barbie revealed that he once slid into her DMs and bought her a ticket to fly.

Why, you ask? 

Barbie says she wanted to teach Hill a lesson -- don't think a free airplane ticket means you automatically get the booty. 

Lesson learned. 

Y'all gone turn me back into the old me 👊🏿 check out "old me " by @fbb_moody it's lit !!!!

Jared Leto Ripped For Rock 'n' Roll

9/22/2017 7:31 AM PDT

Jared Leto lost 35 lbs. for "Dallas Buyers Club" and morphed into the gangly Joker for "Suicide Squad," but when he's just playing Jared the rocker in his band, 30 Seconds To Mars ... he's ripped!!!

Jared shared this pic of his hot bod on Instagram and asked folks to caption it. He also added the hashtag #walkonwater. It's the name of 30 Seconds' new single ... so, pretty genius marketing.

He's missing a few packs to a 6, but we'll let it slide on behalf of those bulging pectorals and the whole putting-the-rock-in-rock-star thing.

F**kJerry Sued You Screwed My Kid Outta Instagram Riches, Bitches!

9/20/2017 3:48 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The wildly popular Instagram account F**kJerry pulled some shenanigans on a 16-year-old kid -- jacking his Instagram handle, and costing him tons of dough ... according to a lawsuit.

The kid's father, Tom Chau, filed the suit ... claiming the company F**kJerry and its CEO struck a deal to post promotional content on his son's account. The kid's no IG slouch himself -- his account @3.141592 (yeah, that's pi to you math nerds) has 2.6 million followers.

Mr. Chau says the problem is F**kJerry didn't get his approval to deal with his minor son, and as the deal stands ... it should have ended in May 2017. Instead, Chau says the F**kJerry people seized control of his kid's account -- memes and all -- and changed his password.

He's suing to get back control of the account, and for the revenue his kid has lost while under F**kJerry's thumb.

9/17/2017 12:25 AM PDT

Seasons change, but Johnny Manziel's future wife, Bre Tiesi, doesn't change (out of her bikini) ... 'cause she's still killin' the 'gram with super hot, nearly-naked photos, even though it's nearly Fall.

We were just casually browsing Bre's social media when we noticed she's gone on a bikini barrage the last couple weeks, and we thought the fair thing to do was to bring it to you guys.

No Johnny in these shots -- he's busy getting ready for a football comeback (looks like the NFL could use him, actually) -- but who cares about football right now? Enjoy the photos.
