Rosie O'Donnell

Wife Claims Rosie's Using Kid As a Pawn

5/1/2015 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rosie O'Donnell's estranged wife Michelle Rounds wants to make 2 things clear ... she says she's not the one who told TMZ about Rosie allegedly regularly indulging in wine and weed, and the second thing is that it's all going to come out in court.

Rounds -- who's gunning for full custody of 2-year-old Dakota -- was leaving a drug store in L.A. Thursday night when a photog asked her about the bitter divorce.  She says she used to be intimidated by Rosie, but now she's ready for a David vs. Goliath fight.

She's also indignant about Rosie posting a pic of Dakota, asking for a vote.

Rosie O'Donnell's Ex

Looks Like Someone

Is Trying To Make Rosie Jealous

4/29/2015 2:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So on the same day Michelle Rounds filed for sole custody of the child she shares with ex Rosie O'Donnell, she hit the town with a smoking hot model. What are the odds???? 

Rounds was out Tuesday night at Madera Kitchen where she walked out with her arm around Carmen Ortega ... who once dated Reggie Bush and was also possibly maybe the reason Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks split. 

We can't say Rounds and Ortega are together. In fact, a rep for Ortega says they're just working on a clothing line together -- but Rounds still went out of her way to snuggle close to Ortega for the cameras to see. 

Not that we can blame her.

Mariah Carey

Flaunts Truckload of Hits & Her Ass ...

For Giant Vegas Welcome

4/28/2015 7:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mariah Carey was welcomed Monday to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas with a quiet, understated gathering of a few close friends ... jkjk ... it was a giant, over-the-top spectacle!

Carey begins her residency at The Colosseum next week, and arrived Monday in a pink convertible, white fur stole, and nude bodysuit -- Mimi wasn't hiding a thing. In fact, she showed off all her #1s with a parade of 18 trucks -- one for each hit song.

Mariah spoke a little -- maybe she's saving her voice -- but mostly she let her anti-Nick Cannon anthem "Infinity" do the talking during her queen-like entrance.

If her Vegas shows are this well-produced, Mariah will be worth the price of admission.

Kanye West

One Crappy Homecoming

You've Been Served!

4/16/2015 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Kanye West's goodwill tour to Armenia and the Middle East came to a sucky ending for him -- moments after touching down at LAX ... he got served with legal papers.

Kanye, Kim Kardashian and North flew back to L.A. Thursday and the scene was absolute chaos. While Yeezy was running the gauntlet -- with North in his arms -- he never saw the guy in a suit sneak up behind him.

As Kanye got into his waiting SUV ... the process server reached in behind him and tossed the papers onto one of the seats. Kim followed a few seconds later, when it appears someone threw the papers out of the vehicle. The process server did not reveal the nature of the legal action.

Two things to watch here: 1. Kanye really keeps his cool under pressure ... and 2. That process server is REALLY brave reaching past bodyguards and into Kanye's vehicle.

Lakers Players

HIT THE CLUBS

... After Historic LOSS

4/16/2015 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Question -- How did the Lakers cope with losing their 61st game of the season last night? Completing their WORST SEASON in team history?! 

Answer -- THEY HIT THE CLUBS ... well, at least two of 'em did. 

Jordan Clarkson and Vander Blue hit up Warwick nightclub in Hollywood -- hours after getting their butts kicked by the Sacramento Kings 122 - 99 in the final game of the season. 

In fairness to the guys, Blue just signed with the team a few days ago ... and Clarkson was just a rookie. 

But still ... cheers to next year?! 

Stephanie March

Here's Her Recipe

for Post-Breakup Hotness

4/14/2015 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One divorce, one trench coat, one killer pair of heels, mix in equal parts anger and confidence ... and you get Stephanie March out Monday afternoon in New York City.

March -- who is in the middle of a nuclear divorce with Bobby Flay -- was not in a chatty mood ... she's letting her lawyers do all the talking for now.  

As TMZ first reported, March is fuming over the prenup and Bobby cancelling her credit card.

The battle in court is still to be fought, but whatever you wanna call this  ... round 1 goes to Stephanie.

Kim and Kanye

Crowd Loses Control

Outside Genocide Memorial

4/11/2015 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kim and Kanye have turned Armenia upside down ... creating pandemonium among fans, photogs and soldiers.

The video is insane.  They were leaving the genocide memorial when everyone just went nuts.   It's weird ... the most moving symbol marking the 100th anniversary of the genocide looks more like a Hollywood event.

Listen to the crowd as Kim and Kanye get in their SUV.  The language differences are fascinating, especially the way everyone refers to them.

Kanye West

I'm Hyundai-ing

Over My Post-Dinner Ride

4/6/2015 7:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is NOT how Kanye West typically rolls, but he wrapped up a fancy Malibu dinner by leaving in a HYUNDAI -- and you can tell he died a little inside while doing it. 

Kanye and Kim Kardashian left dinner at Nobu Saturday night, and while waiting at the valet ... Kanye starts grinning from ear-to-ear because he knows what's about to go down.

A Hyundai Elantra -- cost about $18k -- pulls up ... Kanye puts Kim in the backseat, and he jumps in the front passenger seat. Watch the look on his face -- really says it all. Now, Yeezy isn't cutting costs -- looks like the whip (with sweet sport rims wheel covers) belongs to a friend or assistant. 

$18k is probably the cost of 2 headlamps on Kanye's $400k Lambo Aventador.

FUN FACT: The affordable car line hasn't gotten a plug like this since Kanye wrote, "Win a Super Bowl and drive off in a Hyundai."  

Billy Ray Cyrus

I'm on Patrick's Side

3/26/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Ray Cyrus has NO PROBLEM with his daughter's boyfriend getting chummy with chicks in Cabo.

Miley's dad was out in L.A., when a photog asked about Patrick's now famous Spring break, and Billy Ray made it clear ... he's team Patrick all the way.

The other way to interpret the video -- and accurately we might add -- is that Billy Ray's stamp of approval is proof Miley has forgiven her BF and all is well.

No more achy breaky hearts.

Jamie Foxx

Guys, I'm Not Banging Katie Holmes

3/20/2015 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jamie Foxx was more than happy to stop for photogs Friday so he could shoot down stories that he's dating Katie Holmes.

Foxx was at an ATM in Westlake when he was asked about the reported relationship, and he joked that the tabloids have been trying to make that a story for 3 years.

Jamie said -- and we've independently confirmed -- he was around Katie quite a bit recently for an animation project they are doing with "CSI" creator Anthony Zuiker.

The one thing that's clear ... there's no way Jamie drained his bank account at that ATM.

Photogs Go Down!

Eat French Crap in Louis Vuitton Crush

3/11/2015 7:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The paparazzi swarming Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in Paris might sound more sophisticated -- yelling in French -- but watch ... they go down just as hard as the American ones.

Kimye was walking into the Louis Vuitton show during Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday when multiple backpedaling paps slammed into a barricade. No one seemed seriously hurt in the carnage -- and you gotta see the one guy who persisted after Kanye ... until a bodyguard took him out.  

Not to be outdone ... Selena Gomez got an even bigger crush from photogs and fans leaving the LV show. The video is INSANE, but at least she was armed with much bigger protectors.

Wanted: Way more bodyguards in Paris before the next Fashion Week.

Charlie Sheen

You Dissed Me, Lorre??

Watch Your Back Motherf***er!

3/10/2015 6:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen is blasting Chuck Lorre for the "Two and a Half Men" finale with the most thinly veiled threat ever, saying ... "You must feel safe where you live!" 

Sheen was out at an L.A. mall with some pals (including Darius McCrary) when he was asked about the way Lorre killed him off in the last episode -- falling piano, if you missed it -- and Charlie went into classic warlock mode.

Just a taste -- "To be that stupid ... in my face, really? You must feel safe motherf***er!"

Watch the video ... there's much more, and even if Sheen plays the "it was a joke" card -- Lorre can't be laughing.

Must-See: McCrary's reaction to Charlie's verbal attack. Classic.

NFL LB Anthony Barr

I Can Explain Kim K's Blonde Hair

... She Went Super Saiyan!

3/9/2015 1:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian's power has increased by 50 times and she now has the power to destroy most beings in the galaxy ... at least according to Minnesota Vikings LB/cartoon nerd Anthony Barr. We'll explain ...

Anthony -- who just finished up his rookie year -- was out in L.A. Sunday night when we asked the former UCLA stud what he thought of Kim K's new blonde look.

That's when Barr went full comic book nerd ... comparing KK to a Super Saiyan, a type of character from the show "Dragon Ball Z" that has achieved nearly unlimited power through training.

You be the judge.
