Chris Brown

I Want Karrueche Back

But She's Playin' Hard to Get

4/4/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0403_chris_brown_karrueche-tran_tmzChris Brown has put on a full court press to win back ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, but his efforts have been met with resounding rejection. 

We're told he's blowing up her phone and her friend's phones, but she's radio silent with him. He's been so frustrated he's turned to social media, complimenting her for all to see. He likes photos she posts and when Karrueche posted the pic below he wrote, "Keep killing it kiddo."

But nothing's worked and he's depressed. But hope springs eternal, and Chris is telling his friends he's not going to date anyone else and is confident Karrueche will come back to him.

Chris Brown Wants Karrueche Tran Back Here's the conundrum ... Chris' pride and joy -- his new baby -- is also his Achilles Heel with Karrueche. It's what happens when you knock up the chick you're not dating.

Instagram Phenom 'The Fat Jewish'

That Gut Gets It ...

The Stamp Of Approval

4/4/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Fat Jewish Janet Jackson

One of Instagram's biggest sensations can thank his fat stomach for an upcoming photo spread in Inked Magazine. 

Josh "The Fat Jewish" Ostrovsky is a certified social media icon that has almost as many followers as President Obama -- 3.7 mil and counting -- which is probably why the mag asked him to make that body work for them.

FJ recreated famous magazine covers for the shoot and while he's no Janet Jackson, for some reason we keep getting sucked in ... to that huge belly button.

We've heard FJ tells the mag he's the new face of male modeling and he'll have 6 pics/chances to show us why.

Dig in.

Shaquille O'Neal

Ripped by Judge For Insta-Shaming

But Lawsuit Gets Tossed Anyway

4/3/2015 8:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0403-shaq-jahmal-tmz-instagram-01Shaquille O'Neal was way out of line when he took an Instagram potshot at an innocent guy's face -- but he's still gonna get away without paying the guy a cent ... according to a Michigan judge. 

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ Sports ... the lawsuit filed last summer by Jahmel Binion just got dismissed because of a jurisdictional technicality. 

We broke the story ... Binion sued Shaq and rapper Waka Flocka Flame for defamation after they posted his pic with captions making fun of his face. Binion has a disorder that causes facial deformities and limited hair growth. 

Based on the docs, it's clear the judge thinks Shaq was a jerk for doing this. He calls Shaq's comments, "highly offensive." The problem for Binion is he filed the suit in Michigan federal court and since Shaq has no residence or business dealings in Michigan ... he can't be dragged to court there.

There is a silver lining for Binion. Waka never responded to the lawsuit -- so, according to the docs ... he might lose by default. 

French Montana

I Was Just Sippin' Ciroc

On Diddy's Sea-Doo

3/30/2015 3:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0330-french-montana-sea-doo-drinking-ciroc-INF-01

French Montana was not under the influence of alcohol when he was photographed drinking Ciroc from the bottle while cruising on one of Diddy's Sea-Doos ... so claim people close to the rapper.

As we previously reported ... French was in Miami Beach Saturday, catching some rays and drinking vodka. It's not illegal in Florida to drink while boating, but it IS illegal to drink to the point that the driver is impaired.

0329-french-montana-khloe-kardashian-ciroc-sub-instagram-4

Although our French sources insist he "was not f***** up," Khloe posted a pic around the same time showing her crew -- including French -- on Diddy's roof with the caption, "The Ciroc made us do it!! #StepIntoTheCircle."

NFL's Joe Haden

The New Tyra Banks?!

I Found America's Next Top Model

3/29/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0320-joe-hayden-carlos-dunlap-jason-pierre-paul-model-friend-01

Joe Haden must know a good smize when he sees it ... 'cause the NFL superstar is so sure he's found  "America's Next Top Model" he's leading a social media campaign to get that man on the show.

Haden, along with fellow pigskin pros Carlos Dunlap and Jason Pierre-Paul have taken to Instagram in support of a Miami model named  "Prince" who's trying to score a spot on ANTM's upcoming Season 22.

The three men -- who have over 450k IG followers between them -- each recently posted modeling shots of Prince to their pages along with messages encouraging casting directors to put him on.

We spoke to Prince -- who knows Haden and the other players from partying in Miami -- and he tells TMZ Sports their efforts have sparked some legit interest in him that might otherwise have been hard to come by.

"All those casting directors saw it and it opened the door to conversations with them."

Prince -- who made a mystery trip to L.A. this past weekend -- couldn't tell us whether or not he's made the show yet (sworn to secrecy) but says the NFL love definitely put him on the map.

"1,000% it's helped ... i got tons of new followers because of [the players] and in this business, it's all about exposure."

Better start perfecting that walk young man.

Amber Rose

You Can Touch My Ass ...

With An Airbrush

3/26/2015 8:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0326_amber_rose_butt_splash_instagramAmber Rose has an ass that just won't quit ... getting Photoshopped -- and here's a little before and ass-ter to prove it.

Amber posted a bunch of Instagram shots from her day at the beach in Hawaii -- and everything was so smooth. But then we got some paparazzi shots of her ass -- it's hard to miss -- and these pics are straight outta dimpleville. 

Truth is Amber's in good company -- even Beyonce's been busted multiple times altering pics.

And say what you want about it, but that booty trapped Kanye West AND Wiz Khalifa.

Respect.

Miley Cyrus

Gets Yanked by the Dentist

After Tooth Shaming

3/25/2015 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus Teeth Miley Cyrus has unlocked the secret to free dental advice -- post your X-ray online and let dental experts weigh in, but be warned ... it might not be all good news.

Miley posted the shot on Instagram and it didn't take long for the reviews to pour in, and several blasted her mouth work. We spoke to one reviewer, a dental assistant named Ashley, who gave us this dental Yelp:

-- Miley has veneers on all her upper teeth and had a root canal at some point
-- She might want to get another set of X-rays ... she could have a few cavities
-- Her wisdom teeth need to come out soon (the top ones are impacted and could be a big problem for her other molars if not dealt with soon) 

Miley might have taken that advice ... she posted a pic Wednesday of a few teeth she got pulled.

Fun Fact(ish): A recent study said the Tooth Fairy pays West coast kids $4.68/tooth, on average. Don't it spend all in one place, Miley.

Kylie Jenner

Watch Me Throw Shade

at Blac Chyna

3/25/2015 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0325_kylie_jenner_black_chayna_watches_insagtram_2Kylie Jenner might only be 17, but her trash talking game is fully grown ... after she not-so-subtly taunted her mortal enemy Blac Chyna.

It started Tuesday night when Blac Chyna posted a photo showing off her sick Audemars Piguet watch. It's pretty clear Tyga gave her the watch back in the day (2013) when they flaunted their matching bling.  

A few hours after Blac Chyna posted her timepiece, Kylie posted a pic of her wearing the exact same watch, with the caption "Currently."  

0325_kylie_watch_insagramKylie first posted a photo of the watch back in December.  

Tyga's got to get more creative with his girlfriends. Then again, cat fights are pretty awesome.

Justin Bieber

Please Have Mercy on this Puppy!

3/23/2015 6:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0323-justin-bieber-puppy-splash

Justin Bieber has a new dog ... which has got to be worrisome for the pooch. 

Bieber took the puppy for a fancy dinner at Mastro's Sunday night in Bev Hills. It's unclear why the restaurant let the terrier in.

Bieber Instagrammed the photo Sunday night ... showing the snuggly lil pup wrapped in Bieber's tatted arm. Her name is Esther ... reason unknown. 

0323-justin-bieber-instagram-01

This is where history is both useful and alarming. You'll recall Biebs famously gave away his pet hamster to a fan a few years back (it died a few months later) and abandoned a pet monkey at a German animal shelter.

Good luck, Esther.
