My Look Really Socks!

0411_2_chainz_infThough it may not have been brass knuckles, 2 Chainz was once again caught wearing a deadly fashion accessory ... socks with sandals.

While leaving a NYC hotel on Wednesday, the 35-year-old "I'm Different" rapper -- real name Tauheed Epps -- kept it old school by rockin' geriatric grand daddy foot gear in public.

This time Chainz is wanted by the fashion police.

0411_chris_brown_porsche_SplashRihanna has once again taken back Chris Brown ... at least for now ... 'cause the two were rollin' around L.A. together in the same expensive car yesterday.

As we previously reported, the two have been breaking up and getting back together more often than Van Halen ... but yesterday, it seems they were "back on" for the day.

In fact, Rihanna even tweeted a pic of the twosome together looking as coupley as ever.

Think they'll make it through the week?

Chris Brown's Bodyguard

With 'F***ing' Rihanna Note

Drake started the blowout NYC nightclub brawl last summer with Chris Brown ... by sending Brown a handwritten note that read "I'm f***ing the love of your life" -- this according to Chris Brown's bodyguard.

According to the lawsuit, obtained by the NY Daily News, Patrick Strickland -- whose head was badly bloodied during the flying bottle attacks -- is suing Drake and W.i.P. nightclub, where the brawl took place last June.

Strickland says Drake's note -- a clear reference to Rihanna -- started a verbal altercation, which then led to the all-out melee in which several people were badly injured ... including Strickland and several other clubgoers.

According to Strickland, the club is also responsible for over-serving Dreezy -- and seating him way too close to Chris ... in light of their public beef over RiRi.

He's suing for unspecified damages.

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan mixed vodka with rehab -- with a splash of tears -- on David Letterman's show last night.

The most famous defendant since O.J. Simpson says she's taking her impending rehab seriously ... but then -- on camera -- she reached for a coffee cup filled with a mysterious liquid.

Best mug shot ever!

By the way, Linds kept the party going after Letterman -- she hit up 1 Oak Nightclub, and was seen leaving early this morning.

At least she's not driving.

Bogus sex tape peddler Farrah Abraham just can't hide it anymore ... her breasts that is.

Abraham went frolicking on an L.A. beach earlier today in a barely-there bikini, where she celebrated the imminent release of her totally-staged "sex tape" with porn star James Deen.

TMZ broke the story ... Deen blew the lid off Farrah's sex tape plot yesterday ... telling us he was approached by a porn company to stage the sex tape over the weekend ... and that Farrah was behind the whole thing.

And we're not complaining ... at all.

Katherine Heigl

I'm Way Hotter

Than Any of My Movies!

4/9/2013 11:00 AM PDT BY Johnny Lopez
0409_katherine_heigl_SplashKatherine Heigl took time out from making horrible romantic comedies and showed off two gorgeous reasons why she should still be cast in more films.

The 34-year-old former television actress poured herself into a golden yellow bikini top to tan her blockbuster lady curves in Cabo on Monday.

As long as it doesn't mean any sequels to "27 Dresses," "The Ugly Truth," "Killers," "Life As We Know It," "New Year's Eve," or "One for the Money," we'd all love to see more of Kat.

Puts Up Her Daisy Dukes!

0409_mischa_barton_flynetRockin' a 1993 "Melrose Place" choker and a pair of tattered jean shorts, sometime actress Mischa Barton went for a leisurely stroll in Los Angeles on Monday.

It's been ten years since "The O.C." premiered and the fresh-faced 27-year-old "A Resurrection" star has proven her career still has legs.

Contrary to popular belief, Marissa Cooper is alive and well.

Lindsay Lohan

FISH CRAVING

Chooses Sushi Over Deposition

4/9/2013 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
0409_lindsay_lohan_SplashIt's finally clear why Lindsay Lohan blew off her deposition in L.A. yesterday ... she REALLY wanted sushi.

Lohan was spotted in New York last night ... walking into Lure Fishbar on Mercer Street ... famous for its fresh, raw fish selection.

We broke the story ... hours before her fish dinner, LiLo no-showed for the scheduled depo on the other side of the country ... in a lawsuit filed by a paparazzo who claims Lindsay's assistant hit him with her car and put him in the hospital.

Lindsay's attorney had told the pap's lawyers that she couldn't get in touch with Lohan -- but it's probably because she wasn't looking in the right fish joint.

Life Goes On

After Home Inferno

HOORAY! Ashley Greene's life hasn't completely fallen apart after her apartment was incinerated.

The actress was spotted eating lunch in West Hollywood Monday ... not far from where her condo went up in flames last month ... and she didn't look like a complete emotional wreck.

Ironically, the restaurant where she ate is called "Toast." Even Ashley has to see the humor in that.

Russell Brand

SWATTED

EXCLUSIVE
0408_russell_brand_house_article
The swatting epidemic continues ... this time, the victim is Russell Brand, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops raced to Brand's L.A. home after receiving a call from someone reporting two men with guns approaching the home.

We're told the caller told police one of the men was black, one white -- and they were each sporting body armor.

When cops arrived to the scene, no one was there -- Russell had left the home 30 minutes prior to the call.

After a thorough inspection of the property, cops eventually determined the whole thing was a prank -- another "swatting" incident ... just like Bieber, Ashton Kutcher, Diddy, the Kardashians, etc.

Mary J. Blige

Broke Bikini Babe!

0408_mary_j_blige_INFMary J. Blige isn't letting a little thing like financial ruin stop her from vacationing in the Caribbean.

Rockin' a sexy green bikini, the 42-year-old cash-strapped R&B diva tried to get her mind off the $900K tax lien she got hit with in February ... and defaulting on a $2 million bank loan last year ... and the $250K bank loan her charity was sued for ... by somehow finding the means to jet down to Puerto not-so Rico this weekend. 

All that drama has Mary feeling the heat.

update_bar
2:35 PM PT -- A rep for Mary tells us the singer, "was performing at an event, she was NOT vacationing."

Farrah Abraham

Hand In Hand

w/ Giant Male Porn Star

4/8/2013 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
0408_farrah_abraham_james_deen_sex_tape_launch_v2Farrah Abraham was gettin' super hands on with one of the biggest male porn stars in the biz yesterday ... James Deen ... fueling rumors that he's the co-star in the "Teen Mom" star's sex tape.

Farrah and James --  who, along with having genitals that resemble an elephant trunk, once starred in a mainstream movie with Lindsay Lohan -- were photographed walking into the offices of Vivid Entertainment yesterday.

The two were holding hands ... but it's unclear if they're dating ... or just simply friends with professional benefits.

Farrah previously told TMZ she's AGAINST the release of the tape and is considering legal action to stop the footage from going public.

Sure she is.

Baby Got Back ... & Front!

Miami Heat star Chris Bosh may have had over $300K in watches and rings jacked from his home, but he's still got the family jewels ... his wife's bootyful bikini body.

Looking like a long lost Kardashian, Adrienne Bosh barely contained herself in a red two-piece as she showed off her buxom precious gems on the beach with her son in Puerto Rico this weekend.

She's making those crooks look like a giant ass.

As for the burglary, cops believe it was an inside job that was executed while Chris and Adrienne were out at a Miami nightclub ... but so far, no arrests have been made.
