Rihanna

She-Pimpin' With Soccer Stud

... 5 AM Breakfast Date

6/2/2015 7:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

What Rihanna wants, Rihanna gets ... this time, it seems her sights are set on an international soccer superstar -- because the two hooked up for a very early breakfast date this morning in NYC.

The singer hit up a 24-hour Cuban diner called Coppelia around 5AM with Real Madrid's Karim Benzema -- a handsome 27-year-old who also plays on the French national team. 

The two looked pretty cozy inside the eatery -- but left separately.

But here's the deal ... Rihanna is a HUGE soccer fan and first reached out to Benzema during the 2014 World Cup. They exchanged tweets in which she told him she "felt his pain" -- he replied, thanking her for the support. 

So, friends ... or more than friends? They both happen to be single right now ... 

Stay tuned.

Kim Kardashian's 3 months of pregnancy is starting to show in the usual places -- and they're all on display in NYC.

Wayne Gretzky

Paulina Was a Great Hockey Player

... 'Til She Quit

5/29/2015 6:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Paulina Gretzky isn't just another pretty face ... she was a MONSTER on the hockey rink -- until she unexpectedly quit ... so says her legendary father Wayne Gretzky

Wayne was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood last night ... when we asked which of his 5 children had the most talent on the ice. 

FYI -- Wayne's kids are insane athletes ... with Trevor playing pro baseball and Ty being a scratch golfer.

But when it comes to the puck -- Wayne says it was all Paulina -- that is, until her sudden retirement. 

Don't worry. She found other hobbies ...

Jennifer Lopez

Don't Clown Me in the Airport!

Gets Confetti Bombed

5/27/2015 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Lopez flaunted her abs and nerves of steel at LAX when some idiot -- actually a clown -- attacked her ... with a handful of confetti.  

J.Lo was doing her thing in the airport on Tuesday -- strolling and looking damn good -- when the guy in full clown face doused her. It would be totally normal for Lopez to jump back, or even flinch ... but you gotta see her reaction.   

The offending clown is no random idiot -- his name is Richie the Barber, and you might recall ... he pulled this same stunt last year on Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian

They pressed charges against Richie. It's unclear if J.Lo will have a sense of humor, or do the same. 

Farrah Abraham

Mackenzie McKee

Can Go Fund Herself

5/25/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham has to get something off her chest about Mackenzie McKee’s C-cup campaign -- buy your own boobs!

Our photog spotted Farrah sipping cocktails at the Mondrian Hotel in LA and asked about her fellow "Teen Mom" alum's breast implant fundraiser. McKee's asking for contributions toward her $5k boob job on MyFreeImplants.com. Last we looked she raised around $25. 

Farrah threw some serious shade on Mackenzie, saying she's a mooch.

The former sex tape star even clued us in on how much she paid for her boobs, and it’s not as much as you think.

Robert Pattinson

Friend Flashes Boobie Decoy ...

Photogs Forced to Choose

5/19/2015 8:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robert Pattinson ran the perfect distraction play on NYC photogs with the help a friend -- well, a friend's bare tatas, anyway. 

R-Pattz and his posse were en route to gay hot spot Escuelita Sunday night when a bunch of paparazzi started shooting pics and video -- but one of his quick thinking gal pals set up a diversion by flashing her cans.

So, did her boobs get the job done? Check out the vid. Either way, we give her and Pattinson an 'A' for even calling the pick play.

Put her in, coach!

Jennifer Lopez

Smartphone Disses Mariah's BMA Performance

5/18/2015 8:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Lopez threw a ton of shade at Mariah Carey ... by burying her head in her smartphone while MC was hitting high notes onstage at the Billboard Music Awards -- and the video is epic.

You've gotta see it -- while Mariah was singing "Infinity" ... J. Lo was casually scrolling through her phone, barely even glancing at the stage.

Even as Taylor Swift and the rest of the audience burst into applause for Mimi ... J.Lo chatted up Casper Smart from their front row seats. Jennifer's no fool though -- when the house lights went up at the end of Mimi's act, then and only then did she give her a hand. 

It's hysterical -- you get the feeling Mariah could have been on fire and J.Lo wouldn't give a crap.

Mama June

Stripper???

We Hardly Knew Her!!!

5/17/2015 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517-mama-june-strip-club-SPLASH-01

Mama June shook what her mama gave her at a strip club Saturday night, handling the pole like a pro.

June was all over the business of one stripper, then ferociously grinded another one who was hanging on to the pole for dear life.

It all went down at Crazy Horse Gentleman's Club in Pompano Beach, Florida.  As TMZ reported, June pocketed a cool $5,500 for her appearance.

But June got more than she bargained for, because the crowd made it rain in a big way.

Redemption.

Ex Soap Star

Wet, Stripping Down ...

And Extremely Thirsty

5/15/2015 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

B-actress Alicia Arden is literally betting her ass, that a hot DIY car wash will get Hollywood's attention.

Arden -- who was Theresa Carter on "General Hospital" back in the early 2000s -- is still soaping it up as evidenced by her public strip down to a bikini -- at a West Hollywood car wash.

Check it out ... it's at least the 3rd time Arden's displayed her blatant thirst for camera attention while cleaning her whip. Gotta say though, for a chick turning 46 in two days ... she's still bangin'.

Nice headlights.

Jay Z

Plays Peacemaker ...

Stay Away From Bey!

5/12/2015 10:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Z took his "peace" t-shirt very literally Monday in Manhattan ... shedding his bodyguard's protection to go all Gandhi and squash some beef that was bubbling up way too close to Beyonce

Jay and Bey were walking out of a building when one of their long-time bodyguards swiped at a pap to move him back. Some back and forth barking started, and that's when Jay sprung into Zen action.

You gotta see how he calmly diffused the situation ... allowing Bey to slip by unscathed. 

West coast living is definitely getting to the kid from Brooklyn.

Drew Brees & Matt McConaughey

TOSSIN' BEADS

... In French Quarter

5/10/2015 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here's a cool video ... New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees hangin' out on his balcony with Matt McConaughey ... and tossin' out beads to people on the streets.

So ... why?

The guys teamed up to hand out clues and rewards in a scavenger hunt for charity -- and one of the challenges was to go to Drew's pad and sing to the guys ... in exchange, participants got beads.

It was all to benefit Matt's "j.k. livin" foundation and Drew's "Brees Dream" org. -- but you can tell the guys are having a blast together ... and even got their families involved.

Check out the video ... the footage is really fun.

Justin Bieber

Triumphant Return on Stage

Kanye, Kris, Hailey Cheer Him On

5/10/2015 7:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber got on stage Saturday night ... a big deal because it's his first full concert performance in 2 years ... and guess who closed the show?

Justin took the stage Saturday at KIIS FM's Wango Tango, 2015 in Carson, CA.  Fans went crazy for 4 hours before Bieber took the stage at 8:30 PM.  

Kanye closed the show, so it wasn't surprising his mother-in-law Kris Jenner was in the audience.  A little surprising ... she was sitting next to Big Sean, who had beef with Bieber over the whole Ariana Grande hugging thing.

And Hailey Baldwin was also cheering Justin on ... there's a buzz the 2 have been dating.
