Sacramento Kings Heiress

I'm Not Bangin' Tyga

... We're Just Friends

12/28/2014 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1223-anjali-tyga-twitter-01The daughter of Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé tells TMZ Sports ... yes she's tight with Tyga -- but there's absolutely ZERO boot-knockin' going down between them. 

As we previously reported, Tyga has been spending a LOT of quality time with Anjali Ranadivé (aka Anjali World) ... who happens to be an aspiring singer. The two were seen getting off a private jet together earlier this month leading to speculation they were romantically involved.

But Anjali tells us, "We're just friends and working on music together."

We're told the two met through her manager ... and Anjali says they hit it off (in a platonic and professional way) -- and have been hitting the studio together ever since.

They've already recorded one song together which they performed at a recent Kings game (see video below.)

"I look up to him musically," Anjali says ... "and I can't wait to make even more music with Tyga in the future."

Justin Bieber

Look What Santa Gave Me!

It doesn't matter if you're naughty or nice when you're worth an estimated $200,000,000 ... because Justin Bieber appears to have gifted himself a private jet for XMAS ... although it may not be exactly what it seems.

Justin posted the photos on Shots ... then captioned the pic, "New jet for Christmas, and she's beautiful."

Now let's deconstruct. A G6 goes for around $60M, give or take a few million. This one seems particularly tricked out, with at least 8 white leather seats, a large couch and a lounge.

Lots of celebs who do this purchase a part ownership ... like a time share. Justin could theoretically afford it, but it's a huge nut and $200M only goes so far, right?  

Either way ... undeniably awesome.

Kesha

Dr. Luke Says She Lied

To Save her Ass Over Sandy Hook

12/26/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dr Luke Kesha Sandy Hook Shooting
update_graphic_red_bar
4:20 PM PST -- Kesha's lawyer Mark Geragos tells us ... "All these claims show is a predator attempting to deflect attention from the real facts -- that Kesha was mentally and sexually abused by Luke for years."

He adds, "All of Luke's recent filings bare no consequence in this case and are a sad attempt to paint Kesha -- his victim -- in a negative way."
update-grey-gray-bar
Dr. Luke
is keeping the heat on Kesha, saying he has more proof she's a liar ... and this time it involves the tragedy at Sandy Hook. 

Luke filed legal docs -- trying to discredit her claim that he drugged and raped her when she was 18. He says she flat-out lied when she told the public he forced her to sing "Die Young" to distance herself from the massacre. Luke says she also lied by saying he wrote the song.  

Luke claims Kesha "proudly, and truthfully" took credit for the lyrics before the Sandy Hook shootings.

He also put in the legal docs a story that has circulated ... that Kesha insinuated her dad was Mick Jagger. He says she knows that's a lie but it never stopped her.

And Luke isn't limiting his attack to lying ... he says she's a horrible person who once locked her mom out of a Vegas hotel room with no shoes and no money. Luke says, "Pebe was forced to wander the hotel's casino floor, begging for assistance."

Karrueche and Chris Brown

He Loves Me Not,

He Loves Me!

Chris Brown
has gone from venomously putting Karrueche Tran on blast ... to giving her what looks like a small diamond mine.

Karrueche coyly posted the pic of her latest acquisitions ... courtesy of CB. 

She's not saying if either is an engagement ring, but it's doubtful given that it's on the wrong hand.

It's certainly a major about face ... we spotted them the other night leaving Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood, the first time they've been publicly seen since their nuclear breakup.

Looks like he also gave her a pooch.

This one does answer to "bitch."

Mally Mall

Nick Cannon Praises

Trashes Mariah in New Album

12/25/2014 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

122514_mally_mall_launch_v4
Mally Mall dropped one on us at LAX Wednesday ... saying he's doing an album with Nick Cannon next year and there are references to Mariah Carey ... some of which are NOT flattering. 

The mega hip-hop producer first made it sound like Nick played nice in describing his relationship, but then he half took it back and said Nick's comments will be "controversial." 

From all we've heard, Nick's trying to put a good face on his current relationship with Mariah, making it appear they're getting along much better as friends than as husband and wife.

Looks like that status could change.

Lil Wayne

Warns Birdman ...

My Next Rant's Gonna Be in Court!

12/25/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Birdman Lil Wayne Feud
Lil Wayne
 is ready to take his feud with Birdman to the next level ... threatening to drag him and Cash Money into court if they don't drop his album NOW. 

Sources very close to the feud tell TMZ ... Wayne has issued a simple ultimatum, in writing, no less -- release "Tha Carter V" pronto ... or he will sue to leave Cash Money altogether. 

We're told Wayne is standing firm in his belief the album is ready to go -- but Birdman still says there's a lot of behind-the-scenes work left to be done. 

Wayne and Birdman still aren't speaking to each other. We're told Wayne is only focused on the album. When and if that gets done, he'll worry about fixing the friendship ... if that's even possible now.

1223-jeezy-gifts-david-ka-01Young Jeezy just made Sony's Amy Pascal smile just a little ... he bought out an entire movie theater for a showing of "Annie."

Jeezy went all St. Nick in ATL Tuesday ... dropping $10,000 on toys for his charity, Street Dreams Foundation. The screening set him back another $2,500, which includes popcorn, sodas and candy.

But wait, there's more. Jeezy took 100 kids to lunch at Gio's Italian restaurant.

Jeezy-Claus has made this an annual event 7 times in a row.

Ciara

My Future's Been Wiped Clean

12/23/2014 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1223-ciara-tattoo-removal-wenn
Ciara is finally so done with her on/off BF and baby daddy Future ... she's removing all signs of his existence ... including the tattoo on her hand.

Recent photos show Ciara's having the letter N (his first name is Nayvadius) lasered away. According to our sources ... Future isn't upset about it, and understands it's part of moving on.

Besides, we're told Future's already bolted out of Ciara's home in L.A. ... and has himself a huge new pad in Atlanta, with a new Bentley to go with it. 

Worth noting -- Future has a similar 'C' tattoo, and so far anyway ... he's keeping it.

The couple split in August when she accused him of cheating. They tried again in September, but ... no dice.

Jordin Sparks

Flips the Bird

to Seahawks Fan

12/23/2014 12:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1223-jordin-sparks-main-sports

It was the battle of the birds ... Cardinals vs. Seahawks ... and Jordin Sparks let hers fly right in the direction of a Seattle fan this weekend -- and TMZ Sports has the pic. 

Sparks -- a die-hard AZ Cards fan -- was singing the National Anthem at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale this weekend ... when a fan in a Seahawks beanie got her attention.  

We're guessing there was some smack talk between the two sides ... and it culminated in a pretty solid one-finger salute from the former "American Idol" champ. 

In the end, the Seahawks fan got the last laugh ... Richard Sherman and company shellacked the Cards 35 to 6.

Say Anything Lead Singer

Pukes On Stage

On Unluckiest Security Guard Ever

12/23/2014 9:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

122314_say_anything_puke_launch_v2
The Lead singer of Say Anything hurled on stage Monday night ... soaking a security guard in vomit.

Lead singer Max Bemis was towards the end of the set at the House of Blues in West Hollywood when he projectile vomited without warning. It's unclear why ... but there was alcohol on stage so it ain't that hard to read between the lines.

Bemis didn't miss a beat, and continued singing "I Want to Know Your Plans." As for the security guard ... well it definitely ruined his night.

Sometimes being close to the stage is overrated.

EXCLUSIVE

If Christmas is a battlefield ... Nick Young is France -- 'cause he just surrendered in the war for the best Xmas gift after his GF Iggy Azalea hooked him up with a sick classic car.  

The Lakers star was rollin' around L.A. in his brand new '62 Chevy Impala -- which Iggy delivered to him outside the Lakers facility Monday -- when we asked if it was even possible to top Iggy's gift.

The short answer ... no ... and Nick knows it -- admitting that she "won" the holiday gift exchange this year.  

Swaggy also had some things to say about Kobe Bryant. Check out the clip ...

Kesha

Dear, Dr. Luke ...

You're the Foxxyest Producer

12/23/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1222-kesha-dr-luke-tmz-getty-01Kesha gave her producer, Dr. Luke an over-the-top lovey dovey birthday card that makes it seem like their relationship is anything but abusive ... according to new docs filed by Luke.

The card reads, "You just keep getting hotter every year" -- and includes a handwritten note from Kesha which starts with the words ... "To the FOXXY-est producer EVER!"

Her note continues ... "Thank you 4 helping me make my WILDEST dreams come true!" She closes with a gushing, "I LOVE YOU!"

Luke submitted the card as an exhibit in his defamation lawsuit against Kesha -- who, of course, is suing him for sexual assault. Luke's attorney claims the card is from 2009 -- several years after Kesha alleges Luke started abusing her.   

1223-kesha-birthday-card-dr-luke

Also in the docs -- warm, fuzzy emails Luke says he got from Kesha's mother. One reads, "I hope you know, as much as you have been there for Kesha and me, that we will always be there for you, as family, and friends, if you need anything."

So much for friendship -- Kesha's mom sued Luke earlier this month for giving her PTSD.
