Kevin Federline

I'm Makin' Bank Now

As a DJ!!!

3/1/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Federline DJ

Kevin Federline has gone from living in a $10 million house to DJing in the OC for a grand.

KFed will be spinning at Heat Nightclub March 7th. He's not making Britney money -- $475K a show in Vegas -- but he's getting a thousand bucks and that's a start. 

The good news ... he's still getting child support, although the $20K a month went down significantly after Britney stabilized and took more custody back. 

Here's the thing. Kevin is a happy guy who knows music and has even had a hit -- yes, "Popo Zao" counts. And we hear the club is pretty awesome and the crowd will go crazy if he plays it.

Kevin Federline. He comes tight with every rhyme. And he built a kingdom down the street from Pepperdine.

breaking news

022815_ti_shooting_launchGunshots rang out during a college event headlined by T.I. and Jeezy -- and the crowd scattered in chaos.

The rappers were playing at a day party in Charlotte when someone in the crowd fired what sounded like 2 shots. Police tell us two people suffered non-life threatening injuries ... and both were hospitalized.

Cops say no one's been arrested. They do not have a suspect yet.

Although a T.I. song was playing when the shots were fired ... we're told it was just a track -- T.I. had already performed and was not on stage. Jeezy and Yo Gotti -- who had also performed -- were in the V.I.P. section at the time of the shooting.

We've spoken to T.I.'s manager ... and he says T.I. wasn't hurt. We're also told Jeezy and Yo Gotti were uninjured.

The show was an event to celebrate the C.I.A.A. basketball tournament.

EXCLUSIVE

0228-lil-boosie-tmz-01Lil Boosie was hospitalized Friday in North Carolina after falling victim to the same thing that continues to plague entertainers on the road ... dehydration. 

Boosie tells TMZ ... he started feeling frail and weak while on his way to a show in Charlotte -- and it got bad enough that he decided to go to a hospital to get checked out. He says doctors told him he was extremely dehydrated ... and hooked him up with intravenous fluids.

His Charlotte gig had to be canceled, but on Saturday morning docs released him and he's currently trying to rush to a concert he has scheduled for tonight in Georgia.

Boosie tells us he's feeling better and ready to continue touring ... with lots of water.

EXCLUSIVE

0228-SUB-lil-wayne-twitter-01A fleet of cops cars raced to Lil Wayne's Miami Beach home early Saturday morning ... after police got a call reporting someone lurking in the neighborhood ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement officials tell us Miami Beach PD rushed to Weezy's after the call -- around 3 AM -- saying there was a suspicious looking man on the rapper's block.

We're told Weezy wasn't home at the time, but cops searched his yard for the suspect ... and came up with nothing. No one ticketed, no one arrested. The commotion did alarm a few neighbors though.

We've reached out to Wayne's camp, but no word back yet.

With A Sweet '65

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber New Car

Justin Bieber is getting his 21st b-day started by partying with a 50-year-old ... his buddies surprised him with a sick '65 Lincoln Continental.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Biebs was rollin' up and down the Sunset Strip Thursday night in style after his boys John and Sammy Shahidi surprised him at the studio with the completely restored classic. 

We're told the Shahidi's spent several months working on the whip -- valued around $20K -- and looks just like the car in "Entourage" ... one of Bieb's favorite shows.

The gift bar's been set pretty high ... but you still have time before March 1st to take back that desktop calendar.

We reached out to the owners of "Shots" for comment -- so far no word back.

Wiz Khalifa

Gotcha Amber!

I Just Threw a BD Party for Our Kid

2/27/2015 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa Birthday PartyWiz Khalifa believes in the motto, "If you don't succeed ..." because he threw a belated birthday party for Sebastian and this time the kid showed. 

Wiz threw the bash at his home in Silver Lake Thursday. It was almost a carbon copy of the party he tried hosting last weekend, when Amber and 2-year-old Sebastian were no-shows.  

Amber was not present this time around, which apparently was just fine with Wiz. He used his custody time to bring friends and family together to celebrate the BD. 

Here's the good news ... Amber's name wasn't even mentioned, which is at least one small step in lowering the volume in what has become a super-bitter custody war.

The party was pirate-themed, so it's too bad Amber didn't show. Imagine her walking the plank.

Zendaya

I'm So Over Dreadlocks

And the Whole Giuliana Thing

2/27/2015 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE


Zendaya Coleman is locks free, but not 'cause she felt bullied by Giuliana Rancic ... it's because they're too damn tight.

The Disney star was in Hollywood Thursday night, walking arm in arm with her dad (who has locks), when a photog asked if she's still pissed at Giuliana for jumping to conclusions about her follicle choices on the Oscars red carpet.

It's clear Zendaya has buried the hatchet and she're ready to move on -- but also ... pretty interesting to see she's already ditched the very hairstyle that created all the fuss.

Manny Pacquiao

Unretires from Singing

Records New Song for Mayweather Fight

2/27/2015 8:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

022715_manny_pacquiao_launchJust one month after he swore off singing forever, Manny Pacquiao has pulled a Jay Z -- UNRETIRING from music ... to record a brand new song the Floyd Mayweather fight!

Manny hit the studio recently (according GMA News in the Philippines) and laid down the tracks for "Lalaban Ako Para sa Pilipino" ... which we're told translates to "I Fight for Filipinos."

Our Filipino translators tell us Manny recorded to song specifically for his entrance music for the May 2nd superfight in Vegas. 

It's an interesting move ... since Manny appeared on "TMZ Hollywood Sports" last month and told us he stopped singing forever because, "I love music ... but I don't think music loves me."

Kanye West

Don't Mention Taylor, Beck to Jurors

They'll Hate Me!!!

2/27/2015 6:42 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0227-kanye-taylor-beck-getty-02

Kanye West wants to block Taylor Swift and Beck again ... but this time the stage is a courtroom.

Kanye's lawyer wants a judge to prohibit a photog, who's suing the rapper for assault, from making any reference to the two infamous interruptions at music awards shows. 

Photog Daniel Ramos claims Kanye beat him bad at LAX and he's suing for what he claims are substantial injuries. Kanye's lawyers say the only reason to dredge up the 2009 MTV Music Awards -- where Kanye jacked Taylor Swift's acceptance speech -- and this year's Grammys -- where he jumped on stage after Beck won -- is to poison the jury by making Kanye seem like a bad guy. 

In the legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Kanye's lawyer says the incidents aren't relevant, but what's really interesting is the admission that Kanye ended up looking bad. The lawyer says the videos would "cause jurors to form a negative opinion of West."  

Ramos' lawyer, Gloria Allred, tells TMZ, "It is laughable that Kanye West appears to be so ashamed of his conduct that he doesn't want the jury to know what he did," adding, "Millions watched his conduct. Why does he want to hide it from a jury?"

BTW ... Kanye already pled no contest to criminal battery. He's on probation, which includes anger management courses.

EXCLUSIVE

022715_latoya_jackson_launchLa Toya Jackson was out to dinner with the man we thought was her fiancé, but it turns out ... they called off their engagement and didn't tell anyone.  

They seemed serious as they left Mastro's Thursday night.

La Toya chimed in from the passenger seat that Jeffre Phillips was a truth-teller. When our photog scoffed, Jeffre reiterated.

The couple got engaged last June.  

Courtney Love

Fake Nirvana Song Is So Bad It's A Crime ...

2/27/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Courtney Love Nirvana New SongCourtney Love hates Nirvana's latest release because it's not theirs ... there's no way it's Kurt Cobain singing -- and she's siccing her lawyers on whoever's responsible for the fake song. 

Sources tell TMZ ... Love caught wind of the tune -- which was uploaded to YouTube last week -- and with the help of a real Nirvana member ... confirmed it was fake. Courtney is part owner of Cobain's music rights, and got YouTube to take down the song.

The people behind the fake jam claimed to have hacked Love's computer to uncover a rare track ... which Cobain never planned to release. We're told that whole story is also fake -- Courtney never had the song ... nor was she ever hacked.

Still, her lawyer Richard Dongell tells us Love is pissed off enough about the phony recording that she's working with law enforcement to track down the impostor.

'American Idol' Josh Gracin

Nothing to Lose in Divorce ...

But Half His Music

2/27/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0226_josh_gracin_wife_divorce_getty

It's a good thing "American Idol" Season 2 finalist Josh Gracin is a country singer -- he just got a ton of inspiration by losing half his music rights in his divorce ... which was just finalized.

According to divorce docs ... the exes divvied up their assets, and Ann Gracin is walking with a 50% stake in 24 songs Josh recorded during their 17-year marriage.

Josh will also shell out $1590/month in alimony, and $1436/month for child support. They have four kids -- and will share custody, but there's a complication. Each has a restraining order against the other, requiring them to stay at least 25 feet away.  

Interestingly, Ann was ordered to return Josh's Glock. As we reported ... Josh was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold after posting an apparent suicide threat on Facebook last August. Ann filed divorce papers the next month.

Josh's next album should be interesting.
