David Lee Roth

Who Gave Me This Bloody Nose?

Oh Right, It Was Me!

3/31/2015 7:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Lee Roth has no one to blame but himself for that bloody gash he had on his nose during "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" ... because he whacked himself during his signature mic stand trick.

Roth and the rest of Van Halen reunited for an epic performance on "Kimmel" Monday night, but the sanitized version that aired didn't tell the whole story. 

During the initial performance of "Panama" ... Roth hit himself in the face with his mic stand while twirling it, leaving a cut across the bridge of his nose.

0331-subasset-van-halen-gettyHe kept going, eventually walking offstage to grab a towel. He then patched it up with a band-aid and did the song again. That's the version that aired. 

The show must go on.

The Game

He Threatened to Shoot Me

Hoops KO Was Self Defense [VIDEO]

EXCLUSIVE

0330-the-game-punch-TMZ-02

TMZ obtained video of The Game unloading a punch on an opposing player during a pick-up basketball game -- but we're told the guy threatened to unload a gun in Game's ass before the fight.

Sources connected to Game tell us the rapper says the punchee started things by throwing an elbow at Game ... who responded by elbowing him right back. Then it got really heated -- Game claims the guy said don't make me go to my gym bag because ... "I got that thing."

The clear hint was the guy had a gun.

What happened next was a case of punch or be punched -- we're told Game is saying the guy raised his fist first, and that's when Game threw his Tyson-tatted right hand

The video doesn't appear to back up Game's claim about the guy being first to make a fist.

Game denies making any death threats as the victim claimed to cops. Police are still investigating.

Taylor Swift

Go Take a Hike

Then Dine on Asian Delight

3/31/2015 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor Swift hit up Katsuya in Hollywood Monday night without her Calvin ... but she brought along one of her good friends.

Swift and Fifth Harmony singer Camila Cabello chowed down together and left without saying much, but she looks great.

Before dinner ... Taylor went for a hike in L.A., getting some musical inspiration along the way. We doubt her playlist was about Calvin Harris ... too early for that.

French Montana

I Was Just Sippin' Ciroc

On Diddy's Sea-Doo

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.

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."

Kevin Gates

Not One, But TWO

Fights with Girls!

3/30/2015 2:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE


It's bad enough rapper Kevin Gates got into it with a couple of girls during his show Sunday night in Michigan -- he then fought with a different girl during the same show!

Gates -- probably as well known for having sex with his cousin as he is for his music -- was performing at Z Club in Flint ... when a few girls in the front kept grabbing him.

In the video, you can see Gates shake off the girls a few times before finally having enough … and going after them. Gates' security pulled him back from the crowd and the show continued.

But a short time later, he mixed it up with another girl on the side of the stage -- this time throwing elbows in the fan's direction. It's unclear if he ever connected.

Despite the ruckus, we're told no cops were called -- and as you can see in the video ... the crowd was into the show.

Justin Bieber

Not My Tempo ...

Treats Sushi House To Drum Seshi

3/30/2015 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber loves fish sticks ... to keep the beat ... Sunday night JB and his crew knocked out some off the cuff table jams at a Miami sushi spot using nothing but chop sticks and table tops.

Our sushi sources tell TMZ ... Biebs and about 22 of his closest buddies chased their sashimi down with percussion instead of saki (though it sounds like they had that too) and treated the whole joint at Tokyo Blue to a freestyle jam sesh.

Give it a listen ... JB drops the rhymes while the rest assisted with anything they could grab.

It's pretty cool -- like a tabletop "Stomp" -- but after 2 songs we're told Biebs felt bad, apologized to the other patrons, and posed for pics. We're told he even dropped a $500 tip on the $1,000 tab.

Still ... this won't make his next album.

0330_brett_ratnet_kissing_photos_launch_2Hmmmm ... 

Don't know what to say about this. Brett Ratner making out with a chick on the same yacht where he was nuzzling Mariah Carey.

People on the boat said Brett and Mariah were in full-on couple mode, and we're told both of them loved our posts over the weekend.

But check this out ... Brett on the same yacht Sunday night in the Caribbean, sucking face with another chick.

Like we said ... hmmmm.

EXCLUSIVE

0330-the-game-tmz-01Well, that didn't take long -- one week after The Game got Mike Tyson tatted on his hand ... he allegedly decked someone so hard during a basketball game ... police were called to the scene.  

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Game was playing in a Pro-Am game Sunday at Hollywood High School when he got into a heated argument with another player. We're told the player says Game threatened to kill him, punched him in the face and took off. 

Officers responded and the alleged victim filed a report. Police are investigating the incident as a battery. 

We've reached out to Game ... no word back. Ditto for Tyson.

Snoop Dogg

Nuthin' But a TMZ Cameraman

... And He's Awesome!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Snoop has a doppelganger of sorts ... our photog Joe, who dare we say sounds exactly like Mr. Dogg.

Snoop was leaving Jimmy Kimmel's show when Joe fulfilled his lifelong dream ... to sing "Nuthin' But A G Thang" in front of the rap legend.

We knew Joe was good, but not this good ... and Snoop was duly impressed.

Blac Chyna

Hey Kylie, Watch and Learn

3/30/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner may have had the last word in her watch-off with Blac Chyna, but Ms. Chyna is letting her arm do the talking.

You'll recall ... the 2 girls played the game, "Tyga loves me more" last week when Blac Chyna posted a pic of an expensive watch Tyga had given her back in the day, and then Kylie posted her watch -- almost identical to Blac Chyna's -- with the word, "Currently."

We got Blac Chyna cruising out of the Montage in Bev Hills Sunday night, and while she said nothing about the watch, she actually said a lot.

Britney Spears

Gimme More ...

Britney Spears Soccer MomBritney Spears was in full-on soccer mom mode this weekend in Woodland Hills as she sat around on a picnic blanket and ate orange slices while she watched her son Jayden play.

She's gone from jailbait to MILF in the blink of an eye.

Vanilla Ice

He Can Now Buy the House

He Allegedly Looted ... Legally

3/30/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327_vanilla_ice_home_launchVanilla Ice can try to unscramble the proverbial egg by buying the house he allegedly burglarized, because it's on the market.

You'll recall ... Ice was arrested for felony grand theft after allegedly looting the joint and taking furniture, a pool heater, bicycles and other stuff. Ice told cops he thought the stuff was fair game because it was on the curb.  

The stuff was returned, and now the owner has put the Lantana, FL house on the market for $1.6 mil. 

Here's the rub. You can't rob a bank, return the money and just call it a day. Ice is expected to be formally charged with the crimes next month.
