2/11/2016 8:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0210-kanye-west-tmz-yeezy-logo-02Kanye West is adamant ... anyone who figured out what T.L.O.P. stands for will get free tickets and more, but if they talk about it ... they're S.O.L.

'Ye promised a pair of Yeezys and tickets to his season 3 collection premiere for anyone who guessed the full album name. 33 people guessed correctly, and got an email from Kanye's creative director, which made it very clear ... spill the beans and you get nothing.

0210-sub-kanye-west-invite-4The email threatens, "keep this correspondence 100% confidential - any violation of this will void your contest win."

The show starts Thursday afternoon at Madison Square Garden where Kanye will release songs from "The Life of Pablo" and his new fashion collection. A few models posted shots from Wednesday's rehearsal, and ummm ... yeah. This is the hot ticket.

Shhh!!!

T.I. Real Americans Support Beyonce After Super Bowl 'Protest'

2/11/2016 6:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce's show of black power at the Super Bowl has T.I. fired up, and he thinks you should be too ... if you're a red-blooded American, that is.

We asked T.I. what he thought about the backlash against Bey -- some people saw her halftime show and song, "Formation," as an attack on police. He says those people, including Rudy Giuliani, totally missed the point.

As for planned protests of Beyonce, he says they will "lose in the end." And then he got real patriotic about the whole thing.

Check out the clip. Agree or disagree ... T.I. will make you think. 

 

Stevie J to Nick Cannon I Banged Mariah Twice

EXCLUSIVE

0210-nick-stevie-tmz-01

Nick Cannon got more than he bargained for when some "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars went on his show and one bragged about banging his estranged wife.

Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez were guests on "Wild 'N Out" Monday when the 2 ex-lovebirds squared off during the rap battle against Nick and his crew. It started out all fun and games, but got progressively nasty. At one point Stevie J said he banged Mariah Carey not once but twice.

Nick got pissed off, and then told Stevie J he should worry about Joseline because she was sleeping with Rick Ross.  

It got down and dirtier, to the point Nick threatened the old Hollywood adage, "You'll never work in this town again," because he has so many TV shows and connections.

Eyewitnesses tell us it looked like they were about to come to blows, so producers stepped in, separated them and calmed them down. The picture we got tells part of the story.

Kanye West Album So That's What T.L.O.P. Means

2/10/2016 5:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0201-kanye-west-tmzForget "Swish" and "Waves" ... Kanye West just revealed the new title of his album, and it appears to be a shout out to the biggest drug lord in history.

West tweeted the answer to the T.L.O.P. riddle -- he challenged fans to guess what the initials stood for -- and it's "The Life Of Pablo." He also released the final track list for the record which comes out on Thursday.

Pablo could refer to famed drug cartel leader Pablo Escobar, who 'Ye mentions in his new track with Kendrick Lamar ... "No More Parties in L.A."

Warning: This IS Kanye, so he could still change his mind before the release. 

Katharine McPhee Divorce Finalized ... 'Smash'ing Victory for Nick

2/10/2016 2:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021016-katharine-mcphee-divorce-tmz-03Katharine McPhee's divorce has been finalized and Nicholas Cokas won the battle of when they separated ... which means he's walking away with a lot more cash. 

Cokas is getting spousal support ... plus they're splitting a lot of the dough Katharine's made as a singer and actress. For instance, they're going 50-50 on income from her music rights on all songs made during their marriage ... which includes some still unreleased songs. 

They've also agreed to split all income from her now canceled NBC show, "Smash."

Nick and Katharine hugely disagreed on when they separated -- she claimed it was March 2013, while he said May 2014. The final divorce docs say it was 2014 ... which is why they're splitting the "Smash" cash.

As for her current CBS show, "Scorpion" -- they're only divvying up the money from the pilot episode. Her $700k contract with Columbia/Epic Records is also getting split down the middle.

On the all-important car front -- Kat gets her 2012 Mercedes Benz M Class SUV, and Nick gets the 2013 Jeep Wrangler.

Katharine and Nicholas got married in February 2008, and had an ugly break-up when he accused her of banging the director of "Smash."

Beyonce-Bashing News Anchor I'm Not Racist Or Afraid of the Crazed Beyhive

2/10/2016 2:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0210_Tomi-Lahren-and-Beyonce-TWITTER-GETTYBerating Beyonce for her black power halftime show is blowing up in a news anchor's face -- she's been called a "redneck ass bitch" and "racist cracker" -- but says she's not backing down.

Tomi Lahren's social media has been flooded with nasty comments since her brutal critique of Bey went viral. Lahren tells TMZ the "Black Lives Matter folks" and "militant Bey Hivers" completely missed her message -- that America should be coming together.

Lahren -- an online anchor for TheBlaze --  thinks viewers missed the real point, in her eyes ... that Beyonce used a violent civil rights group to provoke racial tensions.

She insists she's not racist and wants all her haters to know this -- "Don't you dare come at me with your hate and your call to violence and your threats on my life and tell me racism is a one-way street."

2/10/2016 11:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Madonna keeps trying to press forward from concert wardrobe malfunctions ... but they keep bringing her down.

Kanye West I'm Gonna Help Dads Feed Their Kids

2/10/2016 8:44 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West is raging and ranting -- when he's on Twitter -- but in the real world the guy's acting like he's on a campaign to win a Nobel Peace Prize.

Kind Kanye's latest beneficiaries were a group of patient fans waiting for him outside his NYC pad ... and even the paparazzi who hung out for him. 

Check out the vid -- at first he looks like he's gonna blow off everyone, not saying a word. And then he drops a very huge ... very valuable surprise for the fans. He wasn't done there. When he and Kim Kardashian return from dinner, you gotta see his chat with the photogs.

This is Yeezy ... the "It's a Wonderful Life" edition -- and almost enough to make people forget about that Bill Cosby thing.

Future Ciara's Lawsuit's a Joke She Made Money Off Bad Mouthing Me!

2/10/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209_future_ciara_tmzCiara's throwing $15 million rocks from inside a giant glass house ... which is why Future thinks she doesn't have a chance in hell of winning a dime off him. 

Sources close to Future tell TMZ, the rapper thinks it's absurd his baby mama filed the slander suit, since she's talked plenty of trash on him. We're told he believes Exhibit A is her 2015 platinum selling hit, "I Bet." 

With lyrics like ... "You know that it hurts your pride but you thought the grass was greener on the other side. I bet you start loving me as soon as I start loving someone else. Somebody better than you” -- the song is widely believed to be about Future allegedly cheating on Ciara.

Our source says he could've sued over that, but didn't want to be petty. As for whether he fires back with a lawsuit now -- we're told he's considering it, but hasn't seen Ciara's docs yet. His team claims the process server at LAX failed to deliver.

Bottom line: it's a safe bet this is gonna get much uglier.

Kanye West Get Off Cosby's Back ... He's NO Rapist!

Breaking News

0209-kanye-west-bill-cosby-TMZ-01Kanye West thinks Bill Cosby is getting railroaded ... if Kanye's Twitter feed can be trusted, that is.

Honestly, Kanye's been on one over the last few hours -- ranting about a bunch of things, but he just topped them all with ... "BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!"

It's unclear if 'Ye's been hacked, or if he's just getting stuff off his chest.

What is 100% clear is his album drops on Thursday -- which makes this the perfect time to get as much attention as possible.

We're sure Cosby is not complaining.
