Sean Kingston Denies Jumping ... Migos Didn't Touch This Face!

2/22/2017 10:02 AM PST
Breaking News

Nothing about Sean Kingston's face says he got his ass whooped by Migos ... according to Sean.

Kingston just posted some video -- apparently at his hotel in Vegas -- showing off his mug and bragging, "You can't keep a good man down."

He never mentions Migos, but insists his face looks "smooth as motherf***ing ice."

Of course, the only thing this video really proves is Migos and co. don't hit that hard ... or Sean only bruises on the inside.

As we reported ... Kingston was cuffed by cops shortly after the fight and after one of Sean's friends allegedly fired a shot to break up the melee.

EXCLUSIVE

Sean Kingston was cuffed by Vegas cops shortly after he was allegedly beaten up bad by Migos.

As we reported, Sean got into verbal altercation with Migos at the Sands Expo and Convention Center Tuesday afternoon and the group allegedly pummeled him to the ground. We're told someone in Sean's camp fired a shot in the air but no one was hit.

Sean bolted from the scene, as did Migos. The video (above) shows cops questioning Sean and a passenger after cops stopped his car. We're told he was questioned but not arrested.

Earlier in the day, it was all kumbaya between Sean and Migos at the Venetian.

EXCLUSIVE

21 Savage appeals to all demographics ... and that includes a bunch of 8-year-old kids. Parental discretion be damned!

The rapper and his crew were leaving Avianne & Co. in NYC Tuesday night when he got swarmed by a horde of kids that anointed him THE BEST RAPPER IN THE WORLD.

Can't really picture them rapping along to "10 bad bitches in a mansion ... I got model bitches wanna lick me like some candy. And them drugs come in handy." Then again ... kids these days.

Savage also talks about his upcoming tour and lays out his backstage demands. Don't skimp on his shrimp alfredo, bro!

T-Pain Niece's Suspected Killer Found Dead

Breaking News

0222-t-pain-tmz-01The guy suspected of killing T-Pain's 23-year-old niece last year has been found dead in a wooded area close to the original crime scene, and cops suspect suicide.

The body of 25-year-old Tavon Jackson was found in Tallahassee Tuesday night. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ an officer found his body while searching the area in an unrelated case. We're told all preliminary signs in the investigation point to Tavon killing himself.

You'll recall ... T-Pain had reached out to the public for help last summer after his niece, Javona Glover, was stabbed to death while working at a Walgreens. Law enforcement had been looking for Jackson, reportedly Javona's ex-bf, ever since.

Sean Kingston Beaten By Migos Shot Fired

2/21/2017 8:29 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-migos-sean-kingston-3CSean Kingston was beaten up badly Tuesday and people on scene say Migos was the culprit ... but the story is bizarre and the group is not wanted by cops, at least not yet.

Law enforcement sources tell us it went down late afternoon at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Vegas. We're told Kingston and the guys from Migos got into it over an argument involving Soulja Boy and the 3 members of Migos beat Sean badly, allegedly kicking him and stomping on his head.

Law enforcement tells us someone from Sean's camp pulled out a gun and fired once, but didn't hit anyone. That person was detained by security and turned over to the Vegas PD.

By the time cops arrived both Sean and Migos had left. A short time later Sean was pulled over for a traffic stop and became "semi-cooperative," though he did not name names.

We're told police want to speak with Migos, but they are quick to add members of the group are not "wanted" by cops.

President Trump Must Remember Black People's Sacrifices ... Says Wyclef Jean

2/21/2017 2:52 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump needs a refresher on the everyday tragedies African-Americans faced for years ... according to Wyclef Jean.

We asked 'Clef about Trump's Tuesday visit to the National Museum of African American History -- with Dr. Ben Carson -- and he told us what he HOPES the prez learned ... including tolerance for opposing viewpoints.

It's interesting ... Wyclef quoted Dave Chappelle's plea to give Trump a chance -- yet it definitely sounds like his patience for POTUS is wearing thin.

Kesha Her Team Hammered Her On Weight Dr. Luke Provided Emotional Support

2/21/2017 1:54 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-dr-luke-kesha-TMZ-youtube-01Kesha's own team was obsessed with the singer's weight, while Dr. Luke -- the man she's suing for allegedly saying she looked like a "f***ing refrigerator" -- was emotionally supportive ... this according to new legal docs filed by Luke.

Dr. Luke's lawyers submitted emails from Kesha's managers and personal assistant, including one from one of her managers to another, saying, "She really sounds like someone who is doing drugs soo erratic. a couple of hours ago all is going well now she wants to dump the whole lot. this doesn't feel right even with Kesha standards." The reply ... "She is nuts!!!"

There were also references to keeping junk food away from Kesha, with a manager writing, "I definitely think there can't be junk food there for sure."  

Luke emailed Kesha back in 2010, "I know you said you looked like a lesbo but I disagree -- you looked radiant and beautiful. You're doing exactly what you're meant to be doing right now. You're actualizing your dreams. I'm proud of you and love you very much. xo L"

Kesha claims in her suit Luke sexually assaulted her and psychologically abused her.

Chris Brown Denies 'Bulls***' with Soulja Boy ... Karrueche Too?

2/21/2017 12:58 PM PST
Breaking News

Chris Brown is strongly denying something, but it's unclear if he's talking about his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran claiming he's making death threats, or about Soulja Boy -- either way, Chris looks rough around the edges.

Brown told his fans, "Make sure y'all don't be listening to all this bulls***." He never says Karrueche's name, but he could be referring to the story TMZ broke -- Karrueche getting a restraining order against him.

He also explains why he pulled out of the Soulja Boy boxing match -- blaming it on "homies" getting in the way -- and seems to challenge Soulja's crew to come get him.

What's clear is Chris has massive dark circles around his eyes, and seems to be in desperate need of some sleep.

Sisqo Impostor Crossed the Line Now He's Gonna Pay!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Sisqó's PISSED at the impostor who got all sorts of perks at New York Fashion Week when people thought he was legit ... and now the real singer's threatening to take legal action against the wannabe.

The former Dru Hill frontman tells TMZ ... he tried laughing off the episode after learning about it but Sisqó's tone changed when the guy tried cutting deals as Sisqó.

You'll recall the fake Sisqó -- reportedly Gavin Barnes -- was decked out in Sisqó's trademark outfit ... a Versace suit, blond hair and stunner shades scored front row seats to huge Fashion Week events, including Kanye West's show.

But check out what has Sisqó fuming. It just got real.

Alex Trebek Drops Bars on 'Jeopardy!' I'll Take 'Let's Rap' For $200

2/21/2017 8:51 AM PST

It's debatable, but Alex Trebek might've just announced the best "Jeopardy!" category of his career ... at the expense of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and Kanye West.

The category was "Let's Rap, Kids" and Trebek had to repeat lyrics from the rappers' hits. It's hilarious ... especially when he had to drop Desiigner's banger, "Panda."

Alex even gets in a Kanye jab too. New rap beef brewing? Trebek's diss track would kill.

Cate Blanchett Don't Tell Her What to Lip-Sync ... At a Drag Show

Cate Blanchett isn't just a great actress ... she can lip-sync the hell out of a song while sharing the stage with drag queens too.

Cate made an appearance Monday night at Stonewall in NYC -- where she's filming for "Ocean's Eight" -- and performed during a drag show to benefit a charity for the Sandy Hook massacre.

The Oscar winner ended up doing Dusty Springfield's version of "You Don't Own Me." Nailed it too, obviously.

Foo Fighters & NOFX Supergroup We Need Nut Huggers To Keep Punk Alive!

2/21/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Punk rockers Me First and the Gimme Gimmes' top priority when they hit the road is testicle care -- making sure their nuts are comfy.

TMZ got a copy of the greenroom demands for the super group -- made up of NOFX's Fat Mike and Foo Fighters' Chris Shiflett -- and a 5 pack of Hanes nut huggers are apparently crucial to their success ... as is Nicorette gum, mint flavor only.

They're playing the Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival in May, so organizers have some time to hit a local Target for undies. The rest of their demands are mostly booze-related: 

- 1 bottle of Midori
- 6 pack Wild Irish rose red wine
- 2 bottles Jameson
- 1 bottle Grey Goose 

They also want 2 whole chickens and rash cream -- not for use with the chicken. We're guessing, but ya never know.
