James Franco

Rolls Out Beefy New Protection

... Just in Case

12/17/2014 9:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

James Franco BodyguardWith the Sony hackers now threatening violence -- James Franco is applying the old theory go big or go home ... when it comes to the security guard tailing him around NYC. 

Franco was leaving a restaurant in Manhattan Tuesday night with his new muscle in tow. He was in town to promote "The Interview" and attend the premiere ... which Sony ended up cancelling last night.

They say the best defense is a strong offense -- and that dude looks like he can offend, if necessary.

Cody Simpson

Patrick Schwarzenegger's Fooling Everyone ...

He's a Party Animal

EXCLUSIVE

121714_cody_simpson_launchMiley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger took Miami by storm together, but don't get it twisted -- one of them is fueling that party train more than the other... according to their pal Cody Simpson.

The Aussie pop star was shopping at Cotton On in Santa Monica, and talking about his New Year's party plan (he's got a great one) ... which got us on Patrick, Miley, and Cody's raging times at Art Basel last week on South Beach.

We asked who goes harder in the club -- and he backs up what TMZ first told you a couple weeks ago.

You gotta hear Cody gush about Patrick though -- bromance in full bloom.

Kanye West

Does the Splits at Disney On Ice

EXCLUSIVE

1215_kanye_west_kim_disney_on_ice_leave_launchKanye West was your typical doting dad when he and Kim Kardashian took North to see Disney on Ice ... that is, until he mysteriously disappeared from the arena.

The West family had front row seats at Staples Center Sunday ... along with Kourtney's kids, Mason and Penelope, Brittny and Lisa Gastineau, and Ciara and her kid. 

Yeezy looked mostly happy -- especially with his nachos -- but subtly vanished from his seat later in the show ... with Lisa G. eventually taking his spot.

Kanye also didn't make the cut for Kim's post-show pic, but at least North didn't get cut out of this one.

Drake

No Scars After Diddy Fight

12/12/2014 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1212-drake-angry-INF-02
Drake finally surfaced after the Diddy fight looking no worse for wear -- of course he waited almost 4 days to show his face in public.

Drake went on a shopping trip in Miami Thursday -- the first time we've seen his whole face since Diddy took a shot at him early Monday morning outside LIV Nightclub.

As we first told you ... Drake re-injured his shoulder during the scrap, and actually had to go to the ER. Looks like his mug fared much better.

Respect.

Zooey Deschanel Sued

You Broke My Horse

... Now Pony Up!

12/10/2014 5:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1210-zooey-deschanel-horseback-AKMGSI-01
Zooey Deschanel is being sued over a horse ... of course, of course ... by a woman who claims the actress rode the animal so damn hard, she broke him ... this according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ. 

The "New Girl" actress is a hardcore equestrian -- competing in events all the time -- and allegedly "leased" a show horse to ride for $13k back in 2013. 

In the suit, the woman who owns the horse, Patty Parker, claims Deschanel signed a horse contract ... promising not to overwork the stallion (named Literati) with restrictions that included "no more than 3 jumping lessons per week."

But Patty says ... when Deschanel returned the horse ... it was a shell of its former self -- "injured and unusable." Sad. 

In her suit, Patty says Literati needed serious medical attention -- and claims it's on Zooey to foot the massive veterinary bills.

We reached out to Zooey for comment. Did we get a call back? Neigh.

Jason Mamoa BeachFormer "Game of Thrones" hunk Jason Momoa took his man muscles down to Rio de Janeiro ... reminding us why he's the perfect choice to play Aquaman.

Wet. He wears it well.

Karrueche Tran

Any Takers?

12/9/2014 10:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Karrueche Tran BikiniKarrueche Tran is a single woman -- at least until she gets back together with Chris Brown for the umpteenth time -- but in the meantime, she's flaunting her single body all over Miami.

It's not hard to see why Chris kept going back.

Justin Bieber

Goes Extremely Blond ...

Take That Ellen!

12/8/2014 7:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1208_justin_bieber_blond_west_coast_customs_infJustin Bieber hit the bottle a little too hard -- as in the bottle of hair dye -- and he's now emerged as a platinum blond version of himself.

The Canadian pop star, and super-expensive car enthusiast, debuted his new lighter looking locks over the weekend ... during the ribbon cutting ceremony for a West Coast Customs car shop in Burbank, CA.

Whatever you might think of Justin's new 'do,  you can rest assured ... Portia de Rossi probably loves it.

Patrick & Miley

Let's Be Blunt About This ...

12/4/2014 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1204_Patrick-Schwarzenegger_miley_cyrus_fameflynet_2As the saying goes ... where there's smoke, there's Miley Cyrus -- and this time her bf Patrick Schwarzenegger was there too for a suspicious-looking toke break in Miami Thursday.

Miley and Patrick stood on a hotel balcony ... smoking his and hers blunts in plain view of cameras.
No way to tell from the pics exactly what they lit up -- so draw your own conclusions.

The couple's down in South Beach for the Art Basel show ... where clothing is optional. At least for Miley.

Miley Cyrus

She's Looking

a Little Pasty

12/4/2014 6:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1204-miley-cyrus-PCN-02
Miley Cyrus donned a silver wig to match her silver pasties when she showed up Wednesday night to perform at Art Basel in Miami ... with BF Patrick Schwarzenegger in tow.

Miley performed mostly covers -- Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Johnny Cash -- and mocked her own music, saying, "You thought (Art Basel) was a respected place where you could escape me."

One thing's for sure ... the Kennedys are having fun conversations today.

Zoe Kravitz BikiniActress/singer Zoe Kravitz donned what barely qualifies as a bikini as she frolicked in the ocean ... Wednesday in Miami.

With a body like that, everyone is gonna go her way.

Iggy Azalea

My A$AP Rocky Tattoo

Has Gotta Go, ASAP!

12/3/2014 8:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Iggy Azalea ASAP Rocky TattooNothing says you're 100% done with an ex like a laser burning his name away -- just ask Iggy Azalea ... who's finally getting her A$AP Rocky tattoo removed. 

The "Fancy" singer went to the Beverly Hills office of tattoo removal king, Dr. Tattoff on Tuesday -- and walked out with a bandage on her left pinky ... where A$AP's name once lived.

Iggy got the tatt years ago when they were dating. When they split,  she just had his name crossed out ... but now she's making a permanent change.

Finally ... room for some fresh Nick Young ink.

Harry Styles

Runs Into Not One

... But Two Famous Exes

12/2/2014 7:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1202-harry-styles-kendall-jenner-cara-delevigne-rexusaIt's a question for the ages ... if you're going to run into two of your exes at a party, would you rather have two separate awkward encounters ... or an enormous one?

One Direction's Harry Styles chose the second option at Monday night's British Fashion Awards in London ... where he schmoozed Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne.

Styles was linked to Delevingne last September and Jenner just a few months later.

The scariest part for Harry ... Kendall and Cara came to the party together.

Comparing notes ... worst nightmare.
