Snapchat We Need Domestic Violence Help After Rihanna Ad Backlash

3/16/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Snapchat is doing crisis management after getting called out by Rihanna for allowing an ad to run on the social media platform that poked fun of her domestic violence incident at the hands of Chris Brown.

A rep from the National Network to End Domestic Violence tells TMZ they were contacted by Snapchat Thursday asking if the social app could bring an NNEDV member onto its board.

The NNEDV rep we spoke to said their role will be to educate the Snapchat staff on domestic abuse and what's appropriate to post, so they don't make similar mistakes again. 

Rihanna blasted the ailing social media platform for running an ad for a game app called "Would You Rather?" that disturbingly asked: Would you rather "Slap Rihanna" or "Punch Chris Brown?"

People were quick to call Snapchat tone deaf, and Snapchat rapidly made a mea culpa, calling the ad  "disgusting" and admitting they made a "terrible mistake" by not putting the kibosh on it during the reviewing process.

Kanye West Clothing Company Sued You Ripped Off Our Camo Gear

3/15/2018 12:48 PM PDT

Kanye West's clothing company is being sued for allegedly ripping off camouflage patterns from a competing company.

Yeezy Apparel and Unknwn are being sued by Jordan Outdoor Enterprises over camo hoodies, camo thigh-high boots, cargo pants, hooded bomber jackets, shirts, boots and other stuff.

The lawsuit claims Jordan has distinctive markings on its Realtree line and Kanye's companies ripped them off. 

Kanye's companies have used Kim Kardashian to model some of the gear.

According to the lawsuit, a rep from Yeezy contacted Jordan to discuss using the camo patterns, but when the folks at Jordan said Kanye's company needed to license the items, they went radio silent and then without authorization they went ahead and copied the patterns.

Jordan is asking a judge not only for damage, but to stop Kanye's company in their tracks from continuing to sell the items in question and to turn over and destroy the items that already exist. 

Corey Feldman Stiffing an Angel ... According to Complaint

3/15/2018 12:42 PM PDT

2:26 PM -- A rep for Feldman tells TMZ ... Margot was fired due to "highly unprofessional behavior," which included violating her contract. The rep goes on to say Margot made false accusations against Corey, and he looks forward to seeing her in court.Corey Feldman's holding out on one of his Angels, and she's so pissed about it ... she's ratting him out to the state of California.

According to docs, Margot Lane filed with the State Labor Commission ... Corey's company failed to pay her for angel services rendered. Margot says she's owed $1,470 in salary for the period of Aug. 3 to Aug. 12, 2017. Doesn't sound like all that much, however ... there's more.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, the state says Margot's owed an additional $6,860 in penalties for the unpaid wages. Grand total is $8,330.

Margot served as Corey's musical director and also played guitar and piano in his backing band -- the Angels.

We're told she left the group at the end of August. Guessing getting stiffed didn't help the sitch.

Drake Fortnite Sesh w/ Ninja Was No Fake Love, Just God's Plan

3/15/2018 10:08 AM PDT

Drake broke the Internet this week by hopping on a computer game with its most popular player -- but the virtual appearance wasn't a planned plug ... Papi's just a big fan.

Sources over at Fortnite -- the battle-royale type combat game that's super popular on the streaming platform, Twitch -- tell TMZ that Drizzy's Wednesday night sesh with Ninja was not a sponsored event or a pre-planned gimmick ... on the contrary, it happened organically.

We're told Drake personally reached out to Ninja last week on Instagram to set up a mutual time to nerd out and blow stuff up on Fortnite. Apparently, he's a big fan of the game ... following its accounts on social media and even having his own profile -- TheBoyDuddus.

Our sources say Drake and Ninja did not signal they'd be online together Wednesday, and that the pairing came as a complete surprise. But, the love didn't go unnoticed (or unappreciated) ... we're told Fortnite's sending Drake a bunch of swag as a thank-you.

Fortnite's also in the process of setting a celebrity NBA-style "Party Royale" gaming event in mid-June with around 50 celebs and 50 pro gamers. We imagine Drake will get an invite -- Travis Scott and Steelers player Juju Smith, too ... who also played with D&N last night.

As for how Drake did ... word around the water cooler is that folks were making fun of him for being low-key trash. No biggie ... he's rich ... and weirdly well-rounded.

Cardi B Baby Due This Summer ... Still Doing Coachella!!!

3/15/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Cardi B's set to pop out her baby this summer but, unlike Beyonce, she's not letting pregnancy stop her from performing at Coachella.

Sources close to Cardi B tell TMZ ... the rapper's due the first week of July and will be close to 7 months pregnant with Offset's kiddo when she takes the stage next month at Coachella.

It's unclear if she'll dress to cover up what will most likely be a noticeable baby bump by the time she takes the stage. Notice, she was more modest last week at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

TMZ broke the story ... Cardi's people told nightclub staffers she's pregnant during Super Bowl weekend. She denied it, and so did her baby daddy ... but we're told the baby train's full steam ahead.

Our sources say Cardi plans to remain in work mode until she pops. For example, we're told she's spent the last 2 weeks buried in the studio to complete her debut album. She also fully intends to go on tour with Bruno Mars in September ... a whopping 2 months after giving birth to her first child.

She's got a lot on the line -- about $100k per night of the tour, and the same goes for her Coachella dates.

That's a lotta diapers.

Don McLean My GF Is Sweeter Than American Pie

3/15/2018 9:11 AM PDT

Don McLean's playing a young man's game, and dominating so hard ... he's already got a trophy. 

The legendary "American Pie" singer was leaving a hotel Wednesday in London with his much younger, and total smoke show of a Playboy model girlfriend ... Paris Dylan.

We'll do the math -- she's 24, he's 72, which adds up to ... get it, Donnie! 

He was dressed age-appropriately for an oldie, but goodie folk singer. Paris also appropriately rocked a curve-hugging dress. Even though she's posted pics with a shiny rock on her finger, Don's people have told us their thing is strictly professional.

Don didn't write the book of love ... but those legs gotta put his faith in God above ...

Clyde Drexler Named BIG3 Commish After Roger Mason Firing

3/15/2018 7:44 AM PDT
Breaking News

Clyde "The Glide" Drexler is the NEW man in charge of Ice Cube's BIG3 basketball league -- replacing Roger Mason Jr. ... who got the ax earlier this week. 

As we previously reported, Mason and BIG3 are in the middle of a legal war -- so BIG3 removed him from the top spot and had Ice Cube fill in while they searched for a new Commish. 

But, the search is over ... BIG3 tells TMZ Sports the 10-time NBA All-Star has signed a 3-year deal to be the new Commish. 

"As Commissioner he will help lead the BIG3’s basketball operations as well as executing the league’s long-term strategy on all fronts," the league said in a statement. 

55-year-old Drexler was the coach of Team Power during the 2017 season -- so he's familiar with how the league runs. 

"Clyde is a consummate professional, revered businessman, and indisputably one of the greatest players to ever play the game of basketball," said league Co-Founders and Co-CEOs Jeff Kwatinetz and Ice Cube.

"We were thrilled to have his early support as a coach for our inaugural season, and couldn’t be more pleased to welcome him to the executive team as BIG3 Commissioner.”

Rick Ross Body on the Mend And So Is My Family

3/15/2018 7:06 AM PDT

Rick Ross is looking thinner, but also much stronger after his intensive care health crisis -- and he's even taking time to deal with family matters.

Rick was out with his mom, Tommie Roberts, earlier this week in Fort Lauderdale. The Boss was feeling good enough to floss for photogs as he left an attorney's office. We're told he's in the process of hammering out a child support agreement with his baby mama, Tia Kemp.

Tia and Rick have been going HAM on each other on social media in recent months ... with her accusing him of neglecting their son and calling his family ugly. For his part, Rick's claimed Tia's just salty over the fact he banged her sister first.

If Rick's ready to take on that battle, he's gotta be close to being fully recovered from that hospital stay. Silver lining?

Lil Dicky I'm Living Like Chris Brown!!! Driving Ferraris, Dropping N-Word (Sorta)

3/15/2018 7:55 AM PDT

Lil Dicky's junk is seriously enhanced, and he's dropping the n-word like crazy in his greatest fantasy, anyway -- which is, apparently, to be Chris Brown.

Okay, we're not MTV (back when they played music vids), but Dicky's latest vid -- for his song, "Freaky Friday" -- is just too awesome to not discuss. Simple premise ... he switches bodies with Breezy, and hilarity ensues.

Highlights include Dicky instantly being able to dance, instantly having a daughter, driving Ferraris, getting chicks and saying the n-word almost nonstop. Oh yeah, his d**k is really big, too.

We gotta give Chris props, too, for taking a few good-humored shots at his lifestyle in the video. 

Watch for cameos from Ed Sheeran, DJ Khaled and Kendall Jenner's vagina. Seriously ...

Justin Bieber No Bull ... Lambos Can't Go Uphill At Least Not Backwards

3/15/2018 7:49 AM PDT

Justin Bieber was revving and roaring his new Lamborghini in town -- but not cruising through streets like you might expect ... he was just trying to get out of a driveway.

Biebs was leaving a church service in Bev Hills Wednesday night, and on his way out ... he seemed to have the hardest time reversing his whip out of a steep entrance/exit.

It's pretty damn funny, especially considering this thing's got something like 730 HP ... and is supposed to be the luxury ride of bull-like caliber. You'd never guess all that, though, by how long it took JB to get up the hill here. And yet ... he eventually got it done.

Side note ... what color do you think this Lambo is? We thought white ... but then had to take a second look.

The Who's Roger Daltrey 'Very, Very Deaf' from Rock 'n' Roll ... Get 'F****** Earplugs'!

3/15/2018 7:09 AM PDT

The Who's frontman, Roger Daltrey, has apparently gone deaf from rock 'n' roll, and he's got some advice for the youngins following in his footsteps ... invest in earplugs.

Roger was performing solo in Vegas when he made the shocking confession -- that he was "very, very deaf" from loud music played at either his own band's shows or other gigs he's attended over the years. Either way, he says he uses in-ear monitors and is lip reading now.

He tells the young rock 'n' rollers in the crowd to "take your f****** earplugs with you to the gigs" -- something he says he wishes he would've known in his own youth. Nonetheless, Roger is determined to continue performing despite his ailment.

He might be able to see for miles behind blue eyes ... but it sounds like he can't hear a damn thing with busted eardrums.

Danielle Bregoli I'm Out This Bitch!!! No Longer on Probation

3/15/2018 12:20 AM PDT

Danielle Bregoli hired some high-powered attorneys and damn sure got her money's worth ... because she just got off probation early.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... the Department of Juvenile Justice in Palm Beach County, FL has terminated Danielle's 5-year probation. As we reported, Danielle -- aka Bhad Bhabie -- was sentenced back in August after pleading guilty to multiple charges, including grand theft and filing a false police report.

About 5 months later, Danielle -- aka "Cash me Outside" hired Tiger Woods' attorneyDoug Duncan, to co-counsel with Scott Richardson, and they worked out what was already a sweet deal for her. The shortened probation is a nice cherry on top.

We're told the court took into consideration that Danielle's kept her nose clean, and completed 100 hours of community service -- working with the group #HashtagLunchbag, and Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.  

So, case closed and time to hit the road!

Meek Mill Strong Chance He's Getting Sprung ... According to D.A.

3/14/2018 3:10 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Meek Mill won't get a fight from the District Attorney's Office on his motion to be released on bail ... TMZ has learned.

The D.A. filed docs Wednesday saying there's a "strong showing of likelihood" that Meek's conviction will be reversed due to a police corruption scandal in Philly. Prosecutors point out hundreds of previous convictions have already been overturned, and they think Meek will follow suit, shortly.

As a result, prosecutors see no reason for Meek to be held without bail. As we reported, Meek's attorneys have filed several motions, including one for him to be released while the court decides whether to uphold the 2 to 4 year sentence he got from Judge Genece Brinkley.

Meek's mother, Kathy Williams, tells TMZ ... "I would like to thank the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office for carefully evaluating my son’s matter and not opposing the request for bail. The fact that Robert’s entire conviction could be overturned is a blessing and I pray that God gives Judge Brinkley the wisdom to make the right decision and allow my son to return home to his family. I truly believe justice will prevail.”
