Chris Brown

I'm Going Back to Vegas

But There are Strings Attached

5/24/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0522-chris-brown-palms-las-vegas-TMZ-GETTY-01Chris Brown will be allowed back in the Vegas hotel where he brawled during a basketball game ... but there are serious strings attached.

Brown wants to spend part of the Memorial Day weekend at The Palms, but the hotel has reservations.

You'll recall during the Mayweather/Pacquaio fight weekend Chris had a ridiculous suite at The Palms, which had its own basketball court and at around 3 AM he allegedly attacked an opponent. Police investigated but no charges were filed.

The Palms management is agreeable to allowing Chris back, but now there are rules.  For starters, he is not allowed to throw parties in the suite without pre-approval from hotel honchos.  The rule doesn't apply if he has fewer than 15 guests.

But there's more. No outside food or alcohol, which sounds more than a money-maker for the hotel than a real rule.

Chris will be tested, because Karrueche is booked at the same hotel Saturday night, and this will be the first time they've seen each other since their breakup.

Vegas, Karrueche, basketball, and a bunch of rules … what could possibly go wrong?

Kevin Durant

Oops, There Goes the Weed!!!

5/23/2015 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Durant moseyed out of a Hollywood club Friday night and a Rx of weed came tumbling out of his SUV.

The Oklahoma City Thunder star chilled at Hooray Henry's, then limped out of the club with a boot covering his gimpy foot.  As the SUV door opened, what looks like a prescription bottle of weed careened out.

The real point here ... who cares if someone has weed?  It looks like it's what the doctor ordered, which would make it legal, and even if it isn't, it's not nearly as bad as texting while driving.

Hope it cures what ails ya. 

Joe Jackson & Chris Brown

we Have Something BIG in Common

5/22/2015 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0521-joe-jackson-chris-brown-akmgsiJoe Jackson and Chris Brown came together Thursday during the Cannes Film Festival, and it's no surprise because they have a very strong, common bond.

Brown has made no bones about it ... Michael Jackson was a hugely influential figure in his life and shaped his own singing and dancing.

And on the subject of singing and dancing ... Chris performed sitting down during what appears to be a fancy lunch at the insanely pricey Eden Beach hotel.

Gotta say ... it's more entertaining than most singers who stand.

Rolling Stones

Sorry Normies ...

Celebs Got to Rock at Secret Show

5/21/2015 8:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0521_rolling_stones_secret_show_stars_launchBruce Willis and Jack Nicholson scored the hottest ticket in Hollywood Wednesday night -- seats at the Rolling Stones' show in a small theater -- something normal Stones fans struggled to do.

Actually, struggled is an understatement -- but yeah, Bruce, Jack, Andy Garcia, Harry Styles, Scooter Braun, and Joe Pesci were among the huge stars inside the Fonda Theater to see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the boys warm up for their Zip Code stadium tour.

Tickets went on sale online at noon on Wednesday ... and reportedly sold out in just a few minutes. There's a buzz that NO ONE -- as in non-celebs -- was able to get a seat. 

Monica Lewinsky and Charlotte McKinney also made it in, so ... yeah. Altogether now die-hard, regular working class fans -- FML!

Bonus: We got footage of the Stones performing "Start Me Up" ... from across the street and through the bar inside the Fonda. We know, lame -- but it's he best we could do without a ticket.

David Letterman

Marines Get Ship-faced at After-Party

5/21/2015 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

David Letterman had scores of big celebrities at his finale after-party, but the most entertaining guys in the building were 2 Marines who enjoyed a lot of free vodka on Dave.

The 2 guys are in NYC for Fleet Week, and their first night got awesome when they bumped into Steve Martin's wife, who invited them into the shindig.

They told us about all the famous people they met, but it sounds like their new best friend is the bartender.

Happy Memorial Day!!! It's gonna be an awesome Fleet Week.

Bobby Brown

Baby Shower Fun Takes Edge Off

After Bobbi Kristina Battle

EXCLUSIVE

0519-bobby-brown-baby-shower

Bobby Brown shook off his legal battle with Whitney Houston's family, and spent some time celebrating his expanding family ... at a coed baby shower for his wife.

Bobby and Alicia Brown had about 60 people at their Woodland Hills home over the weekend for some traditional baby shower games, including that clothes pin thing -- whatever ya do, don't say "baby" at the baby shower. Seriously?

Anyway, we're told it was a welcome change of pace for Bobby following his fight to be named Bobbi Kristina's legal guardian. As we first reported ... the judge eventually named him co-guardian with Pat Houston.

At the shower ... Alicia proudly showed off her belly, which got a henna tattoo makeover during the party. As for the sex of the baby -- we're told the couple wants to be surprised.  

Alicia is due some time this summer.

Floyd Mayweather

I Won Big

... So I Party Bigger!!

5/17/2015 11:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517-floyd-mayweather-party-Gallery-Launch-TemplateHe already conquered Vegas ... and this weekend Floyd Mayweather has his sights set on the L.A. party scene ... turning up with huge stars in Hollywood for his official victory party ... TMZ Sports has the pics.

Floyd hit club Lure in Tinseltown Friday night and got it crackin' with stars like Bow Wow, Keyshia Cole and Justin Combs with DJ Dirty Draws and Branden King controlling the party.

We're told Floyd wasn't nearly as low key as the last time he was out at Lure ... and turned up the whole night with his gal pal Bad Medina.

It's good to be the (pound for pound) king.

Stevie Wonder

Birthday Surprise!!

Celebs Do Best Stevie Impressions

5/15/2015 10:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

Stevie Wonder rang in his 65th birthday by surrounding himself with his closest friends -- some of whom proceeded to bust out impressions of the legendary musician ... and Stevie had a blast.

TMZ obtained video from inside Stevie's party ... which went down at The Attic in Hollywood Wednesday night. Our sources say handlers had told Stevie he was going to a recording session -- so he was totally shocked when he walked in and heard the birthday cheers.

Stevie made it clear he'd rather listen to other people sing, than perform himself ... it was HIS birthday, after all -- and his celeb pals obliged.

Tyrese, Janelle Monae, Chante Moore, Johnny Gill, and Tommy Davidson joined him onstage -- and you've gotta see Gill's performance.

For some reason Stevie is in full LMFAO mode. It's almost like he knew Johnny was mocking his signature back and forth swaying. Hmmm ...

LeBron James

Team Jet Turn Up

... After KO'ing Chicago

5/15/2015 6:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

**Gentlemen, this is your captain speaking ... we've now reached 10,000 feet ... you're now free to PARTY YOUR FACES OFF!!!!**

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers wasted no time throwing a dance party on the team's private jet Thursday night ... celebrating their blowout win over the Bulls and moving on to the Eastern Conference Finals. 

J.R. Smith shot footage of Bron gettin' down to The Dream's "That's My S**t" ... while teammates slugged beers and basked in the win.  

This coulda been you Clippers ... 

Tyga

A Landlord's Worst Nightmare

Racks Up Hefty Party Fines

5/15/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0514-tyga-house-party-fines-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY01Tyga has neighbors in his fancy gated community pulling their hair out ... because they say he's repeatedly broken HOA rules, and racked up over $10k in unpaid fines for constantly throwing ragers.

Sources tell TMZ ... Tyga's been blowin' the roof off his Calabasas home in The Oaks development -- inviting too many guests to his parties, and letting them enter without proper security clearance. The homeowners' association has hit him with the fines, but it's having zero effect.

Since last August, Kylie Jenner's BF has paid a little here and there, but he's largely ignored the dozens of notices and warnings. We're told he was even banned from all common areas of The Oaks.

Here's the real kicker ... since Tyga rents, technically his landlord is on the hook -- but obviously, he's trying to get Tyga to cough up the dough.

Get in line ... said Blac Chyna.

Adrian Peterson

SHOTS ON ME

Buys Vodka for Entire Texas Bar!

EXCLUSIVE

0513-adrien-peterson-bar-drinking-TMZSPORTS-01

He may not be a Cowboy (yet) ... but they sure as hell loved Adrian Peterson in Texas this weekend ... when the guy walked into a bar ... and bought EVERYONE a shot of vodka!

It all went down at the Flying Pug Bar in Houston on Sunday night ... where sources tell TMZ Sports the running back was the life of the party from the moment he walked in the door.

We're told AP enjoyed some whiskey ... but wanted to make sure everyone else got their drank on too -- so he ponied up for a round Grey Goose on him.

The fun didn't stop there ... 'cause Peterson's group moved the party down the street to another bar called Exit 73 ... and continued to rage!

The best part of the story ... Peterson played it SAFE at the end of the night and let a sober pal drive him home. 

Even bald guys gotta let their hair down every now and then.

1D's Louis and Liam

Let's Be Blunt

We're Partying with Snoop!

EXCLUSIVE

0512-one-direction-tmzOne Direction is ripping a page out of the Justin Bieber playbook ... shedding the whole teen heartthrob thing for Snoop and his mega-blunt.

Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne got down at Snoop's "Bush" album release party Monday night with the likes of Bow Wow, Bishop Don "Magic" Juan, Slink Johnson, Red Grant, Kurupt and Jermaine Dupri.

 Zayn Malik may have actually saved the group from becoming another 98 Degrees, because they now have to recast their image or fade away.

Smoking a blunt with Snoop is a good start.

We're Taking these Chicks in One Direction

Home!!!

5/10/2015 8:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson got a couple of fabulous parting gifts Friday night from an L.A. club ... 2 more than agreeable chicks.

Two of the remaining members of One Direction were leaving Project L.A. when their bodyguards tried a feeble diversionary tactic ... Liam, Louis and the 2 women all left the club separately, but their cover was clearly blown because they all ended up in the same car.

One thing's for sure ... the bloom is off the rose.  Parking enforcement officers are none too pleased that Zayn Malik left the group.  Check out the video.
