Lil Wayne

Sparks Music Deal with Pot Biz ...

'Cause It's 4/20 and Stuff

4/20/2015 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne Weed App

Lil Wayne may be the one stoner today who is actually productive -- he just dropped a new music vid on the holy day of pot, and in a brilliant biz move he did it with the help of a popular "weed finding" app.

Wayne teamed up with Weedmaps to release, "Hollyweezy," from his mixtape "Sorry for the Wait 2."

We're told Weezy is partnering up with the company -- which pinpoints nearby medical marijuana dispensaries -- because he is a longtime advocate for legalization and reform. Also couldn't hurt that the site will get a ton of traffic on 4/20 ... and therefore more eyes on his video.

Wayne appropriately dropped the vid at 2:20 PM. Just kidding, of course it debuted at 4:20 PM EST.

Now grab your bag of gummy bears and enjoy.

Big Sean & Ariana Grande Split

Sorry Biebs ...

Nothin' To Do With You

Exclusive Details

Big Sean Ariana Grande Break UpJustin Bieber is no homewrecker ... at least in this case ... because TMZ has learned that Big Sean and Ariana Grande's split has nothing to do with his mid-concert groping.

Sean and Ariana are history after 8-months of banging, and sources close to the couple say it had nothing to do with Sean's real/fake Twitter outburst after Biebs laid hands on his woman during her show a few weeks back.

We're told the breakup was mutual because they're both constantly touring and just think it's better this way -- but they're staying tight as friends. 

Now Biebs can REALLY make a move ... Kendall Jenner probably won't mind.

Bobby and Tina Brown are absolutely wrong ... Bobbi Kristina is not off life support and remains unresponsive ... this according to the Houston family.

Sources connected with the Houstons tell TMZ, they have no idea where Bobby Brown is getting his information that Bobbi Kristina was awake, nor do they know why Tina said she's awake and no longer on life support.  Gossip Cop first reported the conflicting positions between the Browns and the Houstons.

We're told the Houstons are clear ... "She's in the exact same condition she was in when she went into the facility." They say there is "minimal" reaction ... an occasional eye blink, but that's it.

The Houstons say Bobbi Kristina is still on a ventilator.

Rihanna

Hawaiian Ass Pic ...

Dem Buns Are Da One

4/20/2015 8:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna AssIt's funny that Rihanna is the one in Hawaii ... because we're the ones enjoying the view.

RiRi is island side for the marriage of long time assistant Jennifer Rosales -- going down Monday -- but instead of taking in epic shots of perfect sunsets, she spent a lot of time this weekend snapping selfies of her perfect parts ... and we ain't complaining.

Front,  back, side to side ... she definitely got all the angles ... but the trip isn't about her, right? It's about love and marriage and ... blah, blah, blah.

That pizza slice bathing suit is on point ... and if she's offering, we'll take a piece.

breaking news

0420-migos-mug-shots-FACEBOOK-02Migos' latest performance was in front of a judge Monday morning -- and while 2 members of the rap trio can now be sprung ... another will stay behind bars after their weekend drug bust.

Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset were in a Georgia courtroom for their bail hearing. The judge set Quavo and Takeoff's bond at $10,000 each ... although neither has posted the amount yet.

Offset is a convicted felon, and the judge denied his release due to his prior issues. 

TMZ broke the story ... cops yanked Migos off stage during their performance at Georgia Southern University Saturday night. All 3 were booked for felony drug possesion, felony possession of loaded guns, and misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Calls to the group's rep have not been returned.

Drake

Seems to Confirm Nicki/Meek Engagement

4/20/2015 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Drake all but confirmed Nicki Minaj is going to marry Meek Mill ... and he did it onstage with Nicki and a VERY big ring.

Drake was performing at Coachella when Nicki jumped onstage where he began heaping praise on her, then congratulated her. He wasn't specific about her achievement, but when the 2 hugged, the ring on her finger is unmistakable.

0416-nicki-ring-instagram-01Nicki posted a pic of the ring on her finger last week, but didn't really say anything about it. Meek posted, "I wish every night could feel like last night."

Easy to read between the lines.

Bobbi Kristina

Aunt Claims She's

Off Life Support

4/20/2015 6:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0225-bobbi-kristina-instagram-01Bobbi Kristina's aunt is clarifying Bobby Brown's comment that she has awakened from her coma. 

Brown's sister Tina posted on Facebook, "[Bobbi] woke up and is no longer on life support!!!!!:):)God is good!!thanks for your prayers,,still a process,but she is going to be ok:):):):)."

The post dovetails with Bobby's comment during a concert Saturday, in which is he said, "Bobbi is awake. She's watching me." 

If true it's a stunning turn, given that doctors told the family there was no real hope.

BK has been in a coma since January 31.

Mariah Carey

Eat Your Heart Out Nick

I'm Not Coming Back!

EXCLUSIVE

Mariah Carey is clearly influenced by a much younger singer, because she's saying she'll never ever ever get back together with Nick Cannon.

We know Mariah has seen our video of Nick, telling us he's not closing the door on the possibility of giving their marriage another try.

But sources connected with Mariah tell TMZ, she's out of that game. She likes Nick, but there's no chance of a romantic reconciliation. 

She's not in the market for anyone right now. Mariah has a residency in Vegas that's just weeks away. She's also into raising the twins. When she's not working she goes to Eleuthera, her private Island in the Bahamas.

It looks like she may have a case of post breakup hotness, right?

Harry Styles Is Next to Bolt

... In NEW Direction

4/20/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Harry Styles is about to go the way of Zayn Malik -- bolting from the ranks of One Direction ... at least according to acclaimed director and honorary 1Der Morgan Spurlock

Spurlock directed the docufilm "One Direction: This Is Us" -- which, outside of Simon Cowell, makes him the foremost expert on the band ... among grown men. Morgan told our photog the band will be fine as a foursome for now, but it's only a matter of time before Harry splits.

But even that won't kill the band. Check out Morgan's prediction for Niall, Louis and Liam. 

Think flattops -- on white guys. It just might work ...

Bobby Brown

Tells Crowd ...

Bobbi Kristina is Awake

4/19/2015 11:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bobby Brown stunned his audience during a concert Saturday night, when he told the crowd, "Bobbi is awake.  She's watching me."

It's unclear what Brown is really saying.  On the one had, if you take the first comment at face value it seems he's saying Bobbi Krisina is out of the coma she's been in since January 31st.

But when Bobby says, "She's watching me," it makes it sound like something other than consciousness.

Bobby made the comment at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas.

A$AP Rocky

Slapee Now Slap Happy?

Concert Assault Case Settled

4/19/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

ASAP Rocky Settles Slap LawsuitA$AP Rocky has one less "F**kin' Problem" ... because the woman he allegedly bitch slapped during one of his shows has dropped her lawsuit.

TMZ broke the story ... Lisa Wade claimed the rapper smacked her in the face at a Philly concert in 2013, and filed filed a civil suit against him.

According to the new court docs though, they've settled the suit, and a judge dismissed it with prejudice -- meaning Wade can't turn around and sue again.

This usually means some money's changed hands -- either to the plaintiff or her lawyers (they tend to like getting paid) -- but details of the settlement are being kept under wraps.

Now they can both pretend this never happened.

Suge Knight

Victim Says Rap Mogul

Threatened to Kill Him

4/18/2015 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight says he was scared for his life when he ran over 2 people, killing one, but according to the victim who lived, Suge was actually out for blood.

Cle Bone Sloan told police in an audio interview shortly after the fatal incident at Tam's parking lot in Compton, Suge told him point blank during the confrontation, "I'm gonna kill you."  Bone also says he saw Suge "reaching" for something, which he assumed was a gun.

TMZ first posted video of the incident, where you see Suge drive into the lot and Bone almost immediately attack him.  

Suge's lawyer is making a big deal out of the fact that Bone seemed to take responsibility for the death of Terry Carter.  But other portions of the audio seem to hurt Suge, to the extent Bone viewed him as lethal.
