Paris Hilton

Glow Sticks & Diapers ...

Let's Rave, Kids!!

8/31/2015 4:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0831_paris_rave_launch2If Mother Teresa knew how to spin records, it would've looked like this -- Paris Hilton giving underprivileged kids what they really need ... a face full of foam and sick beats.

Paris packed Club Amnesia in Ibiza -- where she's doing her Summer residency -- with dozens of children who got to party their tiny little faces off. She teamed up with APNEEF (a local center for kids with disabilities) to throw the bash. We're told they raised $100k for the group.

If the foam cannon, strobe lights, and glow sticks weren't enough ... the mini-ravers also got soft drinks and games.

Don't worry, the kid session ended at 7 PM -- y'know ... before things get REALLY weird in Ibiza.

NFL's Victor Cruz

PROVE YOU'RE NOT DRUNK

... Gives Pal DUI Test

8/31/2015 8:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Hellofa move from New York Giants WR Victor Cruz this weekend ... when he stopped his pal outside of a NYC nightclub and gave him an impromptu DUI test to make sure he wasn't going to drive drunk. 

Cruz and his pals were leaving Club Opus around 3:45 AM on Sunday -- when Victor tells his friend to "walk 3 steps" to prove he was sober.  

Unclear if Cruz felt his friend passed the test -- but he definitely let the rest of the group know they should keep an eye out for their buddy. 

The group eventually left -- and it didn't appear as if the friend was going to drive ... so props to everyone involved. 

BTW -- Victor's NY Giants took on the NY Jets hours later at 1 PM ... but Victor is injured and didn't play -- so don't freak out too much over the fact he was out partying. 

Michael Sam

Hitting Bars

... Not QBs

EXCLUSIVE

0830-michael-sam-out-again-TMZ-02Just two weeks after Michael Sam walked away from football to "refocus" -- he's resurfaced at several bars ... including one of the hottest clubs in West Hollywood ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Sam hit up the world famous Abbey on Friday night -- where he was seen socializing and hanging out like any other guy at the bar. He even took pics with fans. 

The very next night, he was back out on the town -- we spotted him leaving Tortilla Republic ... a hip Mexican joint famous for its jalapeno margaritas.  

Last week, Sam was also at the bars -- only in Dallas -- hanging out at a place called The Round-Up ... where it was more of the same ... hanging out with fans and socializing. 

Now, we're told he hasn't been getting hammered or doing anything wild at the bars -- it's just interesting to see him taking in the nightlife after recently tweeting that he wanted to "refocus" so he can get back to football.  

As we previously reported, Sam quit his CFL team on August 14th and said he became concerned with his mental health.

8/31/2015 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cara Delevingne, Selena Gomez, Tyga, Kylie, Joe Jonas, Gigi Hadid, Diddy, Pete Wentz, The Weeknd and a bunch of others hit up various restaurants and clubs in L.A. and WeHo.

Kardashians

Beach Residents to Sue Family

Over Terrifying Fireworks Show

8/31/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-kris-jenner-khloe-kardashian-james-harden-fireworks-fun-art-GETTY_TMZ_COMPOSITE-01The Kardashians may have bought themselves another round of fireworks ... in court.

Twelve Marina del Rey homeowners -- including several celebs -- have banned together and will file a small claims court lawsuit against Khloe and Kris for terrorizing an untold number of residents, who thought their city was under attack. Turns out it was a massive fireworks show at the stroke of midnight Wednesday to celebrate James Harden's birthday just outside the breakwater.

Each resident will demand $7,500 ... the max allowed in California small claims. As for their damages, one homeowner says her kid freaked out. Another says she has MS and her condition has worsened since the incident. They all say they suffered emotional distress.

The people suing say money is not the object. They want to come face-to-face with Khloe, Kris and the others and confront them for conduct they say was rude and supremely selfish. The reason they chose small claims ... lawyers aren't allowed, so the famous family will have to appear.

Don't Touch My Shorts!!

0829-kevin-gates-facebook-launch

Kevin Gates doesn't like to be touched when he's on stage and one female fan learned that quickly ... with a boot to the chest.

Gates was performing at a club in Lakeland, FL Friday night -- you can see a woman in the front row reach out and touch Gates' shorts ... that's when he loses it. 

It's unclear what happened to the woman after the kick but she seems to stick around. 

We've reached out to Gates for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Chief Keef isn't someone to be left speechless, but one female fan did just that when she flashed the rapper during a show. 

Keef was in Orange County Thursday night when the rowdy fan stood up on a barricade. Keef tells her to be careful not to fall and she thanks him for the concern by lifting up her shirt.

Check out the video ... the rapper is so stunned he can't even start his next song.

Jason Derulo

Major Groupie Soap Opera ...

Shut Out of the Party!

8/27/2015 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Not everyone gets to party with Jason Derulo -- as one pissed off groupie found out the hard way when he rolled out of the club ... 5 deep with chicks.

This is painful and yet hysterical to watch unfold ... Jason and his crew rolled out of Argyle Nightclub in Hollywood with a flock of groupies ready to party on his custom Sprinter van.

As shirtless Jason settles into his seat, it looks like a good time would be had by all. Almost.

The left out chick did not take it well or quietly, but eventually her friends did text from the van -- which only pissed her off more! Check it out.

Khloe Kardashian & James Harden

Set Off HUGE Fireworks

... City Officials PISSED!

8/26/2015 7:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar1:00 PM PT -- We've now learned Khloe and James did NOT need a permit to set off the fireworks. They did need the Coast Guard to sign off on the safety of the display, and they got that.update_grey_gray_barKhloe Kardashian and James Harden threw their own personal 4th of July with a GIANT fireworks display that woke up thousands of residents -- and city officials are scrambling to find out HOW it got approved.

The thunderous fireworks show -- visible from multiple towns along the oceanfront -- went on for 15 minutes at the stroke of midnight. TMZ has learned the whole thing was a yacht party for Harden's 26th birthday, and it was all on the up and up. 

Law enforcement sources tell us a permit was issued to James and someone in the Kardashian family. Khloe had bragged about throwing the party for her BF, but nobody expected this kind of over-the-top display.

In fact, there's a mini-conspiracy theory brewing. We've spoken to the L.A. department that normally issues permits for fireworks in the marina ... and they did not sign off, and never would for such a display on a Tuesday night. We're told the display was far enough off shore to be outside of city jurisdiction.

We also spoke to an LA. City Councilman who is angry and trying to figure out who exactly OK'd the fireworks. One law enforcement official told us ... in 5 years he's never heard of a permit being issued for fireworks like this on a non-holiday.

It really is their world, the rest of us are just living in it.

Justin Bieber

Cancels Montreal Appearance

You Wanna Play, You Gotta Pay

8/22/2015 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822-justin-bieber-tmz-01

update_graphic_red_bar8:15 AM PST -- A rep for Beachclub tells TMZ ... "We are incredibly disappointed and upset by the lack of professionalism exhibited by Team Productions (the event's promoter) in violating their contract with Justin Bieber and disappointing the thousands of fans that were going to flock to Beachclub today."

update_grey_gray_barJustin Bieber has pulled the plug on a big event in Montreal Saturday, but only after the handwriting was on the wall -- the promoter wasn't paying him ... sources connected with Justin tell TMZ.

Bieber was scheduled to host an event at Beachclub, where he'd sing one or 2 songs and press the flesh.  It's the same club where Kylie Jenner celebrated her 18th birthday and raked in $200K.

Our sources say according to the contract Bieber's team signed with the promoter, they would pay Justin 1/2 of his appearance fee when the contract was signed and the other half 2 days before the event.  We're told the contract was for "a couple of hundred thousand dollars."

We're told Justin got the first half but Thursday came and went but the balance never showed.  Our sources say Justin's people contacted the promoters and were promised payment pronto, but it didn't happen.

Our Justin sources say the promoter had gone off the radar, and it became apparent to them the promoter either didn't have the money or just wasn't paying, so Justin will not appear.

Matt Damon

Wet and Wild

At Disneyland

8/22/2015 7:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0822-matt-damon-fame-01Matt Damon seemed more amused than fearful on the Matterhorn ... which makes sense given he recently had a much scarier experience when he got stranded on Mars.

Matt and the fam hit up Disneyland for the birthday of one of his kids.  

Lookin' good. 

Justin Bieber

I Can't Party Without A $20k Skate Ramp

8/22/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0821-FIX-justin-bieber-skateboard-ramp-launch-3Justin Bieber better bring his best ollies and stick those 360s ... because a Montreal club has built a very unique $20,000 skate ramp for his one-off appearance. 

Bieber's hosting a party Saturday at Beachclub -- the same place that threw down for Kylie Jenner's 18th -- and the place has been hammering away for weeks on a custom mini-ramp where Bieber and his guests will shred.

If you're wondering why a wooden skate ramp costs $20k ... it's because it freakin' floats! We're told $10,000 alone got sunk into the ramp's floating supports.

Bieber will also get to hit up the club's adjacent wakeboarding park. The club's getting something back for all its trouble -- we're told Justin's throwing in a 3-song performance to say thanks for the extreme party.

Skate or die!
