8/16/2016 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0816-justin-bieber-TMZ-02Justin Bieber pulled a savage move and proved he doesn't make idle threats -- he's wiped himself off Instagram.

Justin removed every post before eliminating the page all together. The move comes just days after he threatened to make his profile private if Beliebers continued dogging his new pal, Sofia Richie. The hatin' must've persisted.

0816-katy-perry-yellow-high-heels-SPLASH-01Katy Perry's new shoes should give a good idea of her new shoe line's direction -- she was in Vegas Monday to announce her 2017 collection, and sported cigar stilettos.

Or, they're a message for her haters ... eat my ash!


The Kardashians The Game's Only 1 for 3 With Us

8/16/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0815-the-game-kardashians-tmz-instagramThe Kardashians say The Game's lying when he boasted he slept with 3 of them on his track, "Sauce" ... he's wrong about at least 2.

Sources close to the Kardashians tell us you can count out Kylie, Kendall, Khloe, Kourtney and Kris ... none of them had sex with Game.

The sources acknowledge Kim dated Game back in the day ... so that one's on the table for discussion, but that's it.

Khloe and Game have been pals for years, but the Kardashian sources are adamant ... strictly platonic.

That said, there's an interesting nugget. Game reached out to Kanye to get his blessing for the song, and Kanye said he didn't have a dog in the fight. Interesting ... Game didn't call Kim.

But ... we know Game sticks by his story. He nailed 3 of them.


Tanya Tucker Super Bowl Overdue to Go Country, Again

8/16/2016 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Yeah, Adele would've been great but since she's out, it's high time the Super Bowl halftime show go full country -- according to country music legend Tanya Tucker.  

Tucker performed at the SB in 1994 along with Travis Tritt, Clint Black and The Judds -- but other than Shania Twain in 2003, it's been all pop and ancient classic rock artists. We got TT in NYC and she broke it down real quick -- there's one artist who'd be perfect for such a big stage. And no, she's not ruling out a duet either. 

BTW, if you forgot that '94 halftime, it's probably 'cause the game was a joke ... Cowboys beat the Bills for the 2nd straight year.

Don't blame country ...

Tyga 'Sold His Soul to the Devil!!' (Not a Kylie Reference ... We Think)

8/16/2016 6:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tyga's stuck in a really bad contract ... with the devil ... according to 2 women who fought through his security guards in Hollywood to give him a loud and bizarre warning.

The scene went down outside Argyle nightclub -- Tyga was pimpin' in his red Ferrari without a care in the world -- when the women bum-rushed him and started going off about his dealings with the devil. Watch ... Tyga and his entourage are perplexed, and then the ranting chicks claim it has something to do with his son, King.

It's strange, for sure ... and the Tyga fans/haters had some words for Kylie Jenner and Blac Chyna too.

One big hint: They make it sound like it's got something to do with money and an ex.

Not shocking for Tyga, lately ... who was also mum about his alleged $200k tab with a jeweler.

Tyga Famous Jeweler Declares War ... Where's My $200k??

8/16/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0815-tyga-tmzTyga may have opened the floodgates when he paid a fat settlement to an old landlord -- 'cause a celebrity jeweler was paying attention ... and hired the SAME LAWYERS to collect on his $200k debt. 

The man with the vendetta is Jason of Beverly Hills -- who claims he got screwed out of some serious cash when Tyga stiffed him in a 2013 jewelry deal for a sick watch and chain.

0815-tyga-jewelry-jason-of-beverly-hills-sub-asset-4bJason went to court and got a $200,000 judgment against Tyga -- but he hasn't seen a single cent and was getting sick and tired of chasing his cash.

That is ... until he saw Tyga coughed up a huge settlement last week to an old landlord who was ALSO going after the rapper for an old debt. 

So, Jason says he called the landlord's attorneys -- Danny Abir and Boris Treyzon from Abir, Cohen, Treyzon, and Salo -- and hired the guys to do the same thing for him. 

We're told the team plans to use the exact same playbook -- aggressively going after Tyga and his assets and turning up the heat to collect ASAP.

If it ain't broke ... 

Faith Evans Promoter Says She Went Gangsta on Him

8/15/2016 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0815-Faith-Evans-tmzFaith Evans resorted to half-baked "gangsta-movie" quotes to explain why she bailed on a concert to instead play the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour ... so says a promoter who's asked a judge to block her from performing in Atlanta.

Promoter Jeremy Hill filed docs hoping a judge puts the kibosh on Faith's plans to perform with Bad Boy Sept. 8 in Atlanta. Jeremy already sued Faith for backing out of his Sept. 10 concert at Wolf Creek Amphitheater.

As for why Faith bailed ... Hill says Faith used a "gangsta-movie" quote to explain -- "It's not personal, it's only business."

Not sure how that's gangsta ... Hill says Live Nation forced Faith to cancel the Sept. 10 concert to receive a purported $800k for performing with the Bad Boy tour. Hill goes on to say Faith's agent texted him, "I can't give up 25 dates for 1. I tried to work it out, she was going to do both shows but it's impossible."

He says Faith's offered to refund the deposit, but he's still pissed.

LeAnn Rimes Gays Also Love Boobies!!

8/15/2016 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeAnn Rimes set us straight -- the gays get down with boobies too!

We caught up with the country star Monday at LAX where our photog lightly grilled her about the low cut top she wore a couple weeks back for her performance at a gay nightclub in London.

She makes a point -- boys will be boys.


The Game Hate It or Love It ... 'I F***** Three Kardashians'

8/15/2016 6:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Game went raw over the weekend.

The rapper dropped a new track, "Sauce," Saturday on SoundCloud and straight up raps he banged 3 Kardashians.

Game doesn't say which ... but we're guessing the 3 oldest.

Have a quick listen ... somewhere Usher's scratching his head too. 

Mariah Carey Boobs Don't Fly with Airports

8/15/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0809-mariah-carey-getty-tmz-01Two airports in Cali want Mariah Carey's boobs up out of their faces -- they're banning the billboards she commissioned because they're way too sexy.

Mimi's returning to Vegas later this month, and to promote the show we're told she shelled out thousands for an inviting photo shoot that were going up on billboards near Burbank and Orange County airports -- huge takeoff spots for the Vegas-bound L.A. crowd. 

Problem is ... the airports have big issues with Mariah's boobs, barely covered by a gold sheet. We're told even Caesars, where Mariah will be performing, wants a censored version of the billboard.

Mariah, we're told, is pressing for the original in all its glory. 

We're with her.


Chris Brown Destroys Baby Mama in Custody Court

8/14/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0812-chris-brown-nia-guzman-Instagra-Facebook-01Chris Brown annihilated his baby mama in custody court ... she lost so bad the judge ordered her to pay Chris back for the attorney fees he fronted her.

Sources connected to Chris tell us, Nia Guzman struck out on every single request regarding custody of 2-year-old Royalty. Nia wanted full custody -- DENIED. She wanted Chris to have monitored visitation -- DENIED. She wanted to deny Chris' mom the right to see the kid -- DENIED. She wanted Chris to submit to drug tests -- DENIED.

The judge maintained the status quo -- joint custody. Chris continues to get Royalty 12 days a month.

When Nia filed her legal docs asking for a change in custody the judge ordered Chris to pay her $20k so she could afford a lawyer. But she lost so hard, the judge said Nia wasn't entitled to the money and gave Chris a credit.

There was supposed to be a separate hearing on child support. Nia is currently getting $2,500 a month from Chris but she wanted nearly $16k. Nia has now dismissed her support petition.

Legal home run, Chris.
