Iggy Azalea Becky Now Ruined as Baby Name

4/28/2016 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Iggy Azalea thinks the furor over Beyonce's "Becky" reference in her album "Lemonade" has put it toward the bottom of the heap as a baby name.

Iggy was talkative at JFK Wednesday and wanted to make it clear ... she has no beef with Beyonce over Becky-gate.

On the subject of Nick Young ... good question by our photog about which comes first ... a Lakers championship or marriage.

Prince Mad Scramble to Cash In On Famous Image

4/28/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0427-sub-prince-rip-shirts-tmz-ebay-01A free-for-all has erupted over the right to sell merchandise with Prince's mug.  

We did some checking, and turns out there's no particular law in Minnesota that protects a person's image after he or she dies. Translation ... when Prince passed away last week, there's nothing in the law specifically prohibiting any Tom, Dick, or Harry from plastering Prince's face on t-shirts, socks, posters, key chains and all things cheesy.

It's way different from places like California and Tennessee, where courts and legislatures have given the estates of dead celebs the right to go after people who try and make a quick buck off famous images. 

Fact is ... Minnesota hasn't been home to that many deceased international celebs, so it looks like the courts have never had to deal with protection of images after death.  

As a result, there are a bunch of fly-by-night companies that are hawking R.I.P. Prince gear.

We're told Prince's siblings are aware people are profiting off Prince's image, and they're considering filing a test case. It's unclear how the Minnesota courts will rule, but for now it's the Wild Wild West in the Midwest.

Prince Carried off Jet by Bodyguard After Emergency Landing

4/27/2016 2:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0427_prince_gettyPrince was in such bad shape when his jet made an emergency landing 6 days before his death, he had to be carried off the plane by his bodyguard ... TMZ has learned.

We've obtained an incident report from the Moline Fire Dept. which responded to the pilot's call for medical assistance. Although Prince's people claimed he was suffering from the flu, our sources say it was actually a life-threatening Percocet overdose.

According to the report, Prince's bodyguard carried the singer off the plane to emergency responders who had already arrived.  

Prince was put in an ambulance which then raced to the hospital, accompanied by a firetruck.

As we reported, Prince was in such bad shape when he landed, paramedics gave him a "save drug" at the airport.

Kesha's taking the judge's advice and getting back to recording music after losing her fight to get free from Sony.

She and Zedd are releasing the single "True Colors" on Friday. It's the song they did when Kesha surprised everyone at Coachella a couple weeks ago.

Officially, it's a Zedd track featuring Kesha. He's signed to Interscope, and sources connected with the deal tell us Sony and Dr. Luke's company, Kemosabe Records, signed off on Kesha doing the project. 

This will be the first new recording from Kesha since the judge shut down her attempt to get out of her Sony deal.

Prince Judge Confirms No Will ... Brother Surfaces

4/27/2016 11:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42616-prince-getty-03It's now official ... a judge has determined Prince died without a will and the bank the singer trusted has officially been appointed to manage his assets. 

TMZ has obtained legal docs from a hearing that was held Wednesday morning in Minnesota. We broke the story, Prince's sister, Tyka, filed papers to start probate proceedings, stating as far as she knew her brother did not write a will.

The judge agrees, and has ruled Prince's assets will be distributed to his heirs ... in this case, his brothers and sisters.

The judge also appointed Bremer Trust to serve as the administrator of Prince's estate, which we're told is worth somewhere south of $150 million. Tyka says Prince trusted the bank and did business there for years. The judge is only making the trust the administrator for up to 6 months, until a personal representative can be appointed. That could end up being a sticky situation if his relatives all vie for the position.

BTW, Prince's half brother, Omarr Baker, appeared at the hearing.

EXCLUSIVE

42616-game-instagramThe Game's penis is giving back ... and not just to millions of his thirsty fans on social media.

After Ethika sales soared from Game's big revealing Instagram posts ... the underwear line and rapper got to work on a new line of briefs, specifically for a deal with the rapper.

We got the first pics of the collection (junk-free, sorry) which will benefit Game's charity, The Robin Hood Project. We're told for every pair of the drawers sold, one will be donated to a homeless shelter.

The collab was pretty inevitable since sales spiked 500% after Game's selfie went viral.

Game's also promising a surprise for all paying customers. Here comes more junk.

Jay Z I'm Puff Daddy Through All the Becky Buzz

4/27/2016 7:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0427-jay-z-akm-01Jay Z ain't the least bit worried about "Becky" or any alleged affairs ... as long as he can light up a Cuban.

Jay was chilling in Miami, smoking a cigar with a friend on the eve of Beyonce's Formation World Tour kicking off down there.

It's the first time we've seen him since Bey dropped "Lemonade," and while the Beyhive wonders if he cheated -- Jigga looks every bit like a guy who's relaxed and comfortable knowing his wife's bringing in HUGE money. Even if she's airing their dirty laundry to do it.

He'll smoke to that!

Johnny Manziel Hits Bieber Concert In Cleveland ... Hours After Grand Jury Indictment

4/27/2016 6:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0427-bieber-johnny-maz-twitter-01Johnny Manziel wouldn't let a domestic violence charge keep him from partying with Justin Bieber Tuesday night ... with the QB catching a flight to Cleveland to see the singer in concert.

Manziel hit up Bieber's "Purpose" world tour at the Quicken Loans Arena last night -- hanging out with Cleveland Browns superstar cornerback Joe Haden

0427-johnny-maz-twitter-01At some point during the night, Manziel got face-to-face with his old pal Bieber -- and posed for a pic together. 

The whole thing is bizarre considering a jury had just officially indicted Manziel for assault earlier in the day ... stemming from an alleged violent incident with his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley. 

Manziel has denied any wrongdoing -- and clearly, he's not concerned at all. 

Prince No Will to Make a Will Finances in Chaos

4/27/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42616-prince-getty-04Prince was a disaster when it came to finances and his business affairs, and many of the people who worked with him say ignoring their advice to make a will is just a small piece of a chaotic puzzle. 

We're told in the 5 years leading up to Prince's death, it was virtually impossible to get his signature on any legal document. Sources who worked with Prince tell us, he felt "screwed over" by people who had him sign deals in his younger years, and that made him "paranoid" to sign anything.   

Prince was so distrusting ... he jumped from lawyer to lawyer almost every year, and sometimes more often. One professional who worked with the singer tells us, Prince called him out of the blue one day and said he wanted to hire him. The professional asked Prince for his business files, and the answer was, "I don't know, they're out there somewhere." The professional never got the files. 

We're told although Prince hired and fired a slew of professionals, his most trusted advisers were "beautiful, 20-something women, all models with no experience in anything." It caused chaos in his life ... especially in the financial department. 

We broke the story, Prince's sister, Tyka, filed legal docs Tuesday stating there was no evidence of a will.

Matt McGorry White Women Can't Complain Black Women Can

4/27/2016 6:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Orange Is the New Black" star Matt McGorry gives Beyonce a pass for her slang term describing white women, because he doesn't think there's such a thing as reverse racism.

Matt, who also stars in "How to Get Away with Murder," was leaving 'The Nightly Show' Tuesday in NYC when our photog asked if he had problems with Bey referring to white chicks as "Beckys."

Iggy went off on Beyonce, saying stereotypes are demeaning in either direction. Matt begs to differ. 

Master P Cut Me a Break, Judge ... My Ex Wants to Be a Stripper

4/27/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0419-master-p-tmz-01Master P's got his own set of 99 problems and wants the judge to know about ALL of them -- including his sick attorney, his freeloading ex and her plans to start stripping. 

P's divorce war with Sonya Miller is still dragging on, and he recently filed a laundry list of excuses for missing a recent hearing. In the docs, Master P includes an email from his attorney's office informing him his lawyer was laid up in a hospital with an unspecified "medical emergency."  

He's also dealing with his wife's landlord, who says Sonya jacked some furniture when she bolted out of the house. Master P's stuck in the middle because he's footing the bill, but he agrees with the landlord that Sonya's "actions are irresponsible, disrespectful and unacceptable." 

And then there's Sonya's potential new job. In the handwritten docs Master P says, "My ex needs help, she told the kids she want to be a stripper."

It's unclear if the judge bought any of this, but it's more entertaining than the dog eating his homework.

Britney Spears Appeals Court Says ... She Was a Drug Abuser

4/26/2016 2:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0426-britney-spears-sam-lufti-GETTY-01Britney Spears not only had mental issues that landed her in a psych ward ... she was a drug abuser ... so says the California Court of Appeals.

It's pretty shocking, but new legal docs filed by Britney's own team include a 2015 decision by the appeals court which lays out Britney's struggles back in 2007 - 2008 in graphic detail.

The trigger for the new docs is an impending deposition in a case that squares Britney against her former friend and manager Sam Lutfi. Lutfi's team is about to take Britney's deposition, and her people filed a motion to keep him out of the room. The docs Britney's people filed included the 2015 decision.

The Court of Appeals chronicled the drama between Britney and Sam. The judges say when Britney and Sam met in 2007 her life was in turmoil. She was involved in a divorce, a custody battle and estranged from her parents. The judges add, "In addition, she was struggling with drug abuse."

The judges say Sam advised Britney about "the importance of getting clean." Britney's family claims Sam was actually the one who fueled her with drugs.

According to the judges, Britney asked Sam to manage her, and he accepted with 2 conditions -- she'd let him assemble a team, and she'd stop abusing drugs. He also insisted on the right to use drug sniffing dogs to make sure she stayed clean. 

The judges say despite Britney's promises, she continued to abuse drugs. It got so dire at one point Britney ended up sleeping in a parking lot. That also happens to be the day she lost custody of her 2 kids.

The good news ... after Britney's dad, Jamie, won a conservatorship, she stabilized and has become extremely productive in her career and she's become an attentive, caring parent.
