EXCLUSIVE

Celebrity Weed Dealer
Celebrity weed mogul Milk Tyson has a new way of getting high ... charity.

Tyson owned a weed delivery company that catered to big, big Hollywood celebs. He got really famous after tattooing the face of one of his close party friends -- Justin Bieber -- on his arm.

There was a turning point in Milk's life when he and Justin sold some of the Biebs' spray paint cans and auctioned them off to benefit typhoon victims in the Philippines.

We found out Milk is hooked ... on charity. He sold his weed company and launched an 11-city hospital tour where he recruits celebs who record videos for children fighting serious illnesses.

Zendaya, Travis Barker and a bunch of other celebs have joined forces with Milk and the tour is already viewed as a big success.

Tyson's foundation, FAM -- Fighting All Monsters While Finding All Meaning -- expects to raise millions of bucks with the help of his celeb friends.

Now that's some really good s**t.

Chris Evans & Chris Pratt

Superheroes Make Super Bowl Bet

1/21/2015 12:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


0121-chris-evans-chris-pratt-twitter-seahawks-MAIN-01Super Bowl XLIX isn't just the Seahawks vs. the Patriots ... it's Captain America vs Star-Lord ... because Chris Evans and Chris Pratt just laid down an EPIC bet on the big game in Arizona.

It all started Monday, the day after Evans' Patriots clinched a spot in the Super Bowl by deflating the Colts 45-7. He took to twitter to remind his fellow Marvel Super Hero that for the next two weeks they ain't buds.

"Well, well, well @prattprattpratt, looks like our teams are going into battle. For the next 2 weeks, you are not my friend, you are my enemy."

That's when Pratt -- a huge Seahawks fan -- laid down the gauntlet, proposing a bet whereby if the the Seahawks win, Evans has to fly to Seattle and visit a local children's hospital in full Captain America regalia, waving the 12th Man flag.

Well, Captain America never backs down from a fight ... and fired back, saying that if the Patriots win Star-Lord has to show up at his non-profit housing venture "Christopher's Haven," in a Tom Brady jersey.

C'mon ... this is pretty awesome.

Jimmy Kimmel

Fatherhood Blows Sometimes

... Deal With It, Baby

1/19/2015 1:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jimmy Kimmel Blowing NoseJimmy Kimmel is very close to his six-month-old daughter Jane -- so close that he sees nothing wrong with using her burp cloth as his snot rag.

Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney were out for a late breakfast at Republique in Los Angeles when the late night host blew his nose in the first available rag he could find. 

We're guessing every parent can relate to his plight -- but every parent also knows what's been in those rags.

You're a brave man, Jimmy.

'Annie' Star Quvenzhane Wallis

Huge Cut In Her Allowance

For Next Flick

EXCLUSIVE

0119_Quvenzhane-Wallis_TMZ
Time for a smaller piggy bank ... Quvenzhane Wallis -- the new "Annie" and 11-year-old former Best Actress nominee -- is taking a huge pay cut for her next film.

According to docs ... the young star has gone from raking in $750K for "Annie" to pulling in a measly $40K base salary for her role in the upcoming "Fathers and Daughters" starring Russell Crowe and Aaron Paul.

But wait, there are bonuses ... if F&D hauls in $35M at the box office she'll score $25K and receive another $25K for every $5M jump after that, with a max bonus of $200K.

While it's a far cry from Daddy Warbucks bucks, remember she still has the potential to score another $750K bonus if "Annie" does well -- it's grossed $100M worldwide so far.   

No hard knock life here ... just a hard name to pronounce.

EXCLUSIVE

1126-devon-still-and-family-FACEBOOK-01Devon Still's ex is waving the white flag in their fight over child support -- telling TMZ Sports the two sides have reached a financial agreement that's in the best interest for their daughter Leah. 

The Cincinnati Bengals player -- whose 4-year-old daughter is ferociously battling cancer -- had been at odds with Leah's mother ... who claimed Devon wasn't living up to his end of a "voluntary" child support arrangement they struck over the summer. 

Leah's mother, Channing Smythe, claimed she needed the cash for living expenses ... saying she couldn't work because caring for Leah is a full-time job in itself. 

But now, Channing says the two sides were able to work out their money issues -- telling us, "He is helping me out financially" ... noting that Devon is still playing a huge role in parenting Leah. 

"I am very happy that we are working together for Leah."

As for Leah, Devon says she's been unable to shake the cancer -- but says, "We are going to keep faith and keep fighting no matter what. #LeahStrong #BeatCancer."

Nick Cannon
beat Mariah Carey to the courthouse ... we've learned he has quietly filed for divorce.

The timing is interesting. We found out Nick filed papers December 12. The date is relevant because on December 2, Mariah showed up 3 hours late to tape a segment for the NBC tree-lighting special.  

At the time we posted a story ... Mariah was on the phone with her lawyers going over the terms of her property settlement. That syncs up with Nick filing papers a week later, after they hashed out a deal.

Short story ... Mariah has completely detached Nick from her new, very lucrative deal in Vegas.

Usher's Ex-Wife Tameka

Congrats!

My Kids Can Be In Your Wedding

EXCLUSIVE

Usher Wedding
Usher
's ex-wife Tameka Foster has a short memory ... she's so happy for Usher and Grace Miguel she'd not only love for her kids to be at his wedding ... they can be in it.

"Nasty" is a gross understatement in characterizing the war between Usher and Tameka over their two boys. Yet now we're told she's more than fine if their kids see him swap vows with the woman she claims hooked up with him while their youngest was only 3-months. 

Usher popped the question earlier this week to his manager/girlfriend and Tameka wishes them nothing but the best. 

Tameka must be over getting booted by Usher from his $3M Georgia mansion in 2012 ... and forgot claiming he cheated on her with one of her bridesmaids from their wedding.

Even if they're just empty words ... sounds like she's taking little groomsmen steps in the right direction.

She shouldn't hold her breath for an invite.

Former NFL star Matt Light -- a 3-time Pro Bowler -- just finished up a charity event with special needs children in which he took them out hunting for deer ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Light is an avid hunter who strongly believes in the positive value of outdoor activities such as hunting, clay shooting and camping. 

In this case, Matt and his friend Noah (who he met through The Light Foundation) got themselves a buck out in Alabama. 

"All of the lessons I've learned in the outdoors have really proven well for me," Matt says ... "And I want to pass them along to kids like Noah."

Light says he believes the kids learn everything from teamwork to trust and respect on the hunting trips. 

"He's able to be a kid. He's around other kids like him that he can relate to and share stories with. It's all about those campfire moments."

I Don't Smoke Weed

... I'm Focused On Football

011515_snoop_and_son_launchHis father is one of the most famous pot-smokers on the planet ... but Snoop Dogg's football star son says he doesn't touch the sticky icky ... because his body is a smoke-free temple. 

Cordell Broadus -- one of the top high school wide receivers in the country -- appeared on ESPN's new documentary series "Snoop & Son: A Dad's Dream" ... and addressed the green elephant in the room. 

"I don't mess with that at all," Cordell said ... "If you're an athlete, you shouldn't cheat your body."

As for Snoop, the Doggfather says he goes out of his way to keep his weed habit away from Cordell ... saying, "I don't want him no where near it."

Cordell has yet to announce where he's heading to college next year -- but you gotta imagine this topic was on the mind of every major coach recruiting him.

EXCLUSIVE

0113-jj-watt-tmzsportsJ.J. Watt's most badass 7-year-old fan just got hooked up with some serious swag ... including the cleats Watt wore during one of his most dominant games this season.

Anthony Tarantelli made headlines last month when he sent HIS autographed jersey to Watt ... and bragged about being the "most feared" pass rusher in his youth football league.

Watt vowed to return the favor and came through with an awesome package, including ... a jersey, a hat, and a letter from the MVP candidate. Anthony's dad tells TMZ Sports, "He told him to stay confident in himself, and keep working hard."

But the coolest gift was the cleats J.J. wore when he sacked the Jaguars QB 3 times in one game. Watt wrote "3 sacks" on the side ... and Anthony says they still had mud on them.

Anthony's father says, "For J.J. to actually follow through and hook the kid up with the gear ... it was a pretty sweet move."
