Michael B. Jordan

DENIED

At Diddy BET After-Party

6/29/2015 6:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael B. Jordan, one of the biggest actors in Hollywood, learned Sunday night that the L.A. fire code carries more weight than star power.

Michael was turned away from Diddy's post-BET party at Boa because the place was at capacity.

Michael was cool about it, preparing to leave when one of Diddy's lieutenants sprinted out of the restaurant, telling him Diddy was going to personally get him in.

But the law's the law, and Jordan was turned away a second time. Diddy came to the front door to see if he could grease the wheels, to no avail.

In the end, Diddy surrendered, shook the owner's hand, and poor Michael was left alone on the Sunset Strip.

After Stage Demotion

EXCLUSIVE

0323-rich-homie-quan-tmz-2Rich Homie Quan is main stage or no stage at all ... and that's why you didn't see him at Sunday night's BET Awards.

RHQ was supposed to be on the telecast, but according to our sources ... he showed up to rehearsal Saturday and was told by producers he'd be the headlining act for the red carpet pre-show ... which did not go over well with him.  

We're told Quan was pissed, feeling totally disrespected.

Fans noticed his absence, with one tweeting, "I mean this a real nice put together BET Awards but um... 😐👀 where's Rich Homie Quan???"

2 Chainz vs. Flo Rida

My Chainz Bigger Than Yours

6/29/2015 7:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0526-2-chainz-flo-rida-splash2 Chainz and Flo Rida squared off at this weekend's BET Awards ... and one of them won by a neck.

Both showed up with giant jewel-encrusted chains ... it's debatable who's got the bigger and badder bling ... but both look like they could cover a kid's college tuition.

One thing's for sure ... sometimes one is enough ... even for 2 Chainz.

Diddy

Hits the Stage

...Then His Ass

6/29/2015 3:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You can't keep Diddy down ... even when he falls into a giant hole.

It happened Sunday night during an epic Bad Boys Records tribute at the BET Awards featuring Mase, Faith Evans, Lil' Kim, and 112  ... Diddy danced over what appeared to be an elevator lift opening. He fell smack on his ass ... hard.

But the football father took it like a champ -- popping right up and finishing to a standing ovation.

Now that's what you call strength and conditioning.

Diddy seemed in good shape when he hit up BOA after the show, but wasn't into our questions about his UCLA football fight.

Meek Mill

When I'm On Tour

I'm Meat Mill

6/29/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-meek-mill-security-hot-wings-02
Meek Mill demands enough food to kill a cow -- literally -- when he performs with Nicki Minaj.

We got hold of his backstage concert rider, and it's pure gluttony.

-- 100 mild or lemon pepper wings 
-- 5 lbs of seasoned turkey meat
-- potato chips, cookies, Doritos
-- 2 half gallons of Simply Raspberry Lemonade

BTW ... that's just lunch. Now here's the dinner menu:

-- Fresh baked, fried or grilled fish
-- Real jerk chicken
-- Oxtails, rice and peas
-- Mixed Grill, including ribs, steak, BBQ chicken and shrimp
-- Roast turkey
-- Salmon
-- Trout
-- Mahi-Mahi
-- Snapper
-- Orange Roughy
-- Chinese Stirfry
-- Spaghetti
-- Lasagna
-- Linguine
-- Veal
-- Collard greens, veggies, red beans, rice, yams, sweet potatoes, corn on the cob, etc.

It makes a Mill thirsty, so there's
-- 7 bottles Moet Chandon
-- 3 bottles Brignac Brut God Ace of Spade
-- 5 bottles  Ciroc
-- 2 bottles Patron Silver

Meek's also concerned about security, requiring 2 police or other security on standby to whisk him out of the venue if there's trouble.

What we didn't see ... several rolls of toilet paper. 

Tyga

It’s Settled ...

My Old Landlord Gets $80k

6/29/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-tyga-tmz-02Tyga ditching on a crap ton of rent payments -- nearly $100k -- is finally biting him in the ass, and if he doesn't pay up now ... it's REALLY gonna cost him.   

Tyga has a Monday deadline to fork over $80,000 to his ex-landlord in Calabasas. Both sides agreed on that amount to cover back rent payments. If you include interest ... he actually owed $124k, so the settlement is a sweet deal.

But obviously, paying on time isn't exactly Tyga's thing -- so during a hearing on Thursday ... the judge gave him a stern warning: Meet the deadline, or the landlord's gonna nail ya for the full $124,000.

Check city, bitch -- write one this weekend. Or else ...

Kanye West

Gets 'Taylor Swifted' at Concert

6/28/2015 8:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West just got a dose of his own VMA medicine when a known stage invader did his thing during a concert.

Kanye was performing in Glastonbury, England when Lee Nelson danced center stage.  Kanye kind of gave a 'WTF' gesture to his security, who promptly ramrodded the guy off stage.  As far as we know, Nelson was not arrested.

Nelson has crashed other big shows as well, including the 2014 "X Factor" live shows.

Nelson didn't let it go, tweeting, "I Kanye'd Kanye."

Nicki Minaj

Only the Best TP Wipes This Ass!

6/28/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-nicki-minaj-backstage-demands-fun-art-02The most pampered person on Nicki Minaj's tour is ... her ass, which has very specific needs when it comes to feeding it AND wiping it.

We got ahold of Nicki's concert rider, and the list of demands -- from her meats to her crapper -- is spectacular. 

First, the ins:
- 12 pieces of fried chicken
-  2 strip steaks (well done)
- 4 bottles of Nicki's MYX Fusion Muscato wine
- 4 mini-bottles Sutter Home chardonnay

Now, the outs. Barbie's bathroom must have:
- 4 rolls of "good quality" toilet paper (Quilted Northern or Charmin Ultra only)
- 1 box of baby wipes (gotta have backup)

Bottom line? Nicki ain't going Downtown Julie Brown when she's on the road. If you don't know ... Google it. Carefully.

EXCLUSIVE

0626_plies_mike_caskey_music_videoPlies and one of his friends took a white guy hostage ... at least that's what was reported to Florida cops, but it wasn't what it seemed.  

Cops were called to the St. Cloud home of Mike Busey (Gary's nephew, aka the white guy) after a passerby saw what he thought was a hostage situation. Someone called 911, saying 2 black males with assault rifles were holding a white male hostage.

Deputies rolled up with sirens blazing, then discovered the guns were unloaded and the only thing the guys were shooting was a music video.

The scene had Plies picking up guns from Haitian gangsters with assault rifles.

Check out  the video ...  the crew gets a stern talkin'-to by the cops.

Justin Bieber

I Play Second Banana to My Pastor!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber awesomely took second seat to the pastor of his new-age church ... and it's so fun.

The Biebs and Pastor Joel Houston were leaving Hyde nightclub in Hollywood Friday night when our photog tried jawboning with Justin.  But when J.B. wanted the pastor of Hillsong Church to get some face time, our photog obliged and the convo turned to surfing.

Houston -- who also fronts the band Hillsong United -- along with his co-pastor, Carl Lentz, are the spiritual advisers to lots of celebs. Lentz Baptized Biebs back in December.

Meek Mill Party

LAPD in Overdrive

For BET Awards Weekend

6/27/2015 8:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill's party was overrun Friday night by both clubgoers and cops, who were determined to keep the peace in Hollywood during the BET Awards weekend.

The rapper hosted a big party at Playhouse Hollywood, which was packed to capacity just after midnight. A slew of cops showed up -- on the ground and in the air -- to control the crowd and prevent a repeat of last year's violence during pre-show parties.

An eyewitness says YG was rejected after he refused a pat-down.

All was calm and it looks like only one or two people were busted for disorderly conduct.

One down, one to go.

Wyclef Jean

Fires Trump As a Friend ...

F**k Him for Mexico Rant

6/26/2015 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

Wyclef Jean ripped his old pal Donald Trump for attacking Mexican immigrants ... by dropping an f-bomb on him during a concert.

The ex-Fugees rapper was in Pomona, CA Thursday night when he went off on Trump ... referencing the Presidential nominee's comment that most Mexicans are rapists and drug dealers. Clef's attack was short, sweet, and very telling. 

He had appeared on "Celebrity Apprentice" ... doing a guest spot in the boardroom once, and also played a corporate gig for Trump.

But watch this vid -- there'll be one less holiday card for both men to send this year.
