T.I. & Tiny Divorce Dead in the Water ... For Now

3/1/2017 10:56 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0301_ti_tiny_tmz-2T.I. and Tiny are creeping closer to reconciliation -- or at least NO divorce status -- because she forgot to do one very important thing when divorcing someone.

A hearing in the divorce was scheduled Wednesday morning in Georgia, but TMZ has learned the matter was taken off calendar when the court discovered T.I. had never been served with divorce papers. Remember ... Tiny filed way back on Dec. 7.

It's not like she had trouble locating T.I. -- we know they've been together several times in recent months -- including the holiday season. He even admitted they did Valentine's Day together.

At this point, if Tiny wants to move forward, she'll have to file proof T.I. was served.

The lack of progress in court confirms what we've heard from sources close to the couple -- they're just nowhere near getting divorced, and that's the way Tiny wants it.

Donald Trump Killer Mike & El-P Want the Prez ... 'He Might Learn Something'

EXCLUSIVE

Rappers Killer Mike and El-P aren't stopping with Obama when it comes to handing out free tickets to their show ... they're extending an invite to President Trump too.

We got the Run The Jewels rappers leaving "The Daily Show" in NYC Tuesday night where they told us they'd be down for Trump to take in a show.

Kellyanne Conway might make it on the list too. When we asked Mike and El-P about her infamous couchgate photo, they seemed more interested with what was going on in the background.

The Game I Got Roses for Nicki ... Out of Love or Her Rap Grave?

3/1/2017 7:11 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Game better not catch anyone speaking ill of Nicki Minaj -- he jumped to her defense, but he might also be acknowledging she got crushed by Remy Ma.

We got Game Tuesday night leaving 1 OAK on the Sunset Strip, and he came out so strong in support of Nicki ... our camera guy might have wet himself. But when we brought up Remy's devastating diss track ... Game's tone changed. We think.

Hard to tell, but he might have just handed over flowers for Nicki's metaphoric tombstone. Or he's just trying to get some. Both would be appropriate.

Univision Lawsuit Brought to You By the Letter 'S' ... As in, You Stole My Song!!

3/1/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0228_Sesame-Amigos_univision-2Univision used Elmo, Cookie Monster and his pals to pull off a musical heist -- so claims a famous Puerto Rican singer who's suing the network.

Joel Bosh is best known as Taino -- who had the 90s hit, 'Yo Soy Boricua' -- and says Univision jacked that song to promote "Sesame Amigos" ... the Spanish version of "Sesame Street." He says the commercial ran in Puerto Rico.

In docs obtained by TMZ, Taino says he's very picky about letting anyone use his musical calling card. He gave boxer Felix "Tito" Trinidad and  the Puerto Rican Day Parade in NYC the green light. Same for a Church's Chicken commercial, but that's about it.

To be clear, 'Sesame' producers are not named in the suit -- Taino just wants Univision to pay up.

Vegas 'Cannabis Cup' Don't Pass the Dutchie! That Means You Too, Luda

2/28/2017 4:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0228-hightimes-no-weed-tmz-getty-02President Trump's promise to get tough on marijuana is harshing the mellow at a famous cannabis festival in Las Vegas, which is suddenly abiding by federal laws -- meaning NO GETTING HIGH.

Organizers for this year's HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup -- which kicks off in March -- tell us weed is NOT allowed at the event this year, and that goes for headliners Ludacris, Chief Keef and Cypress Hill's B-Real too.

Even though recreational weed is legal in Nevada, we're told the feds informed the Moapa Paiute Tribe -- who own the land where the event is going down -- that federal law prohibits transport, possession, use or distribution of marijuana.

The threat seems clear: We'll be watching. Plus, White House press secretary Sean Spicer recently said point-blank they'd be cracking down on weed.

HIGH TIMES reps say they're still expecting a great event, but want to comply to help the cannabis industry "continue to gain legitimacy and social acceptance."

Talk about a buzzkill.

Kodak Black 'There He Go' ... Back to Jail

2/28/2017 3:42 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0228-kodak-black-mug-shot-01Kodak Black is back behind bars for violating the terms of his house arrest and probation ... 3 months after he'd been released from lockup.

Kodak was booked into Broward County Jail Tuesday after a court hearing, where the judge found he violated a number of conditions of his probation.

Law enforcement sources tell us Kodak failed to complete an anger management program, and left his house without permission at least 2 times. We're told at least 1 of those trips was to a strip club.

Kodak walked out of jail back in December. He'd been serving time for drug and sexual conduct charges. The first single he dropped when he got out was, "There He Go." Should be quite the sing-along in jail tonight.

Joe Mixon Turns Up With Russ Westbrook and Migos Night Before NFL Combine

2/28/2017 2:55 PM PST

While tons of NFL prospects were resting up for Day 1 of the NFL combine in Indianapolis ... Joe Mixon spent his Monday night onstage at the Migos concert -- since he wasn't invited to the workout anyway. 

Mixon -- along with NBA star Russell Westbrook -- rocked out on the stage with the rappers during their show in Oklahoma City (don't worry, Russell didn't have a game Monday night either).

Despite the combine snub stemming from his violent incident with a female student, Mixon is still training like crazy and plans to show off his skills to NFL scouts at his pro day on March 8.  

As for the combine, Tuesday was the basic introduction stuff ... registration, medical exams, orientation and interviews. 

Justin Bieber It's All Downhill From Here ... With Model Gal Pal

2/28/2017 7:52 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0228-justin-bieber-hike-mystery-girl-launchJustin Bieber is in a race to the bottom ... but at least now he's got some attractive company.

Bieber took a 1-on-1 hike with his model friend, Ashley Moore, who seemed down to get physical with him in a friendly competition running on a canyon trail. 

If there's one thing we know about Bieber ... he tends to open up in the wilderness. Bodes well for Ashley. Plus they've hung out before -- couple years ago at a Clippers game -- so, seems like they've got a connection.

Nicki got strapped up in red from head to toe for Future's music vid shoot in Miami Beach. She still hasn't clapped back at Remy's "ShETHER" diss track.

This will have to do as a response. For now.

U2 Sued You Jacked 'The Fly' That's Gonna Cost Ya $5M!!

2/28/2017 7:38 AM PST
Breaking News

0228-u2-performing-GETTY-01U2's "The Fly" is a total rip-off from a British songwriter ... according to the songwriter who's finally getting around to suing them for the 1991 hit.

Paul Rose -- a writer and guitarist with 12 solo albums of his own -- says Bono, Edge and the boys straight-up jacked the music for "The Fly" from his 1989 song "Nae Slappin."

In the docs, Rose says he recorded a demo and gave it to Island Records, which circulated it and repeatedly listened to in its offices. That same year, Island Records signed U2.

Rose thinks it's no coincidence "The Fly" -- the lead single from U2's "Achtung Baby" album -- features a guitar hook and solo nearly identical to the one in "Nae Slappin."

It's unclear why Rose waited 25 years to sue, but he wants $5 million in damages. The Dirty first reported it. Does he have a case? Take a listen ...

Nicki Minaj's Ex Safaree She's On Her Own With Remy Should Just Take the L

2/28/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj's ex says Nicki took a major hit from Remy Ma ... and she shouldn't count on him to help her recover.

We got Nicki's ex-fiance and producer Safaree Samuels leaving the gym in L.A. ... he says Remy's lyrics are some of the most disrespectful he's ever heard -- possibly a one-punch rap battle knockout.

Safaree's not one for helping out his ex either, but not because it's personal with Nicki ... he's just not into female beef.
