Will Smith

Raps at Gabrielle Union's Birthday Party

10/28/2012 2:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Will Smith gave Gabrielle Union -- and the entire Internet -- the best present ever last night ... when he grabbed the mic at her 40th birthday party and rapped like it was 1991 all over again.

Smith, with the legendary Doug E. Fresh by his side, busted out a cool freestyle ... and then dropped "Summertime" AND the theme from "Fresh Prince of Bel Air."

Smith has caught the rapping bug lately -- remixing "Summertime" back in June and doing a little "Fresh Prince" on BBC's "The Graham Norton Show" in May.

Some things never get old.

Diddy

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to party with really, really hot chicks.

'X Factor' Finalists

Threatened By Hotel

After All-Night Rager

EXCLUSIVE

1027-emblem3-xfactor
The cocky guys from "X Factor" who make up the band Emblem3 were partying their faces off in Los Angeles last week ... so much so that the hotel they're staying in threatened to kick them out.

Emblem3 -- who made their name on "X" singing original songs (below) -- is made up of three guys, ages 15 to 19. We're told the boys threw a massive party in their hotel room this week partying, which included other "X" finalists.

According to our sources, it got so loud that hotel guests complained and called security ... who then shut down the party, and threatened to kick the boys out.

We're told "X" producers -- who are footing the bill for all the contestants -- had to swoop in and save the day, by begging the hotel to let them stay. 

A source close to the show tells us, "All the partying Emblem3 is doing is distracting the other contestants and they've been warned to behave."

Teenagers. What are ya gonna do?



Michael Phelps

Crowd Surfing Accident

Inside Vegas Nightclub ... CAUGHT ON TAPE

EXCLUSIVE

102512_phelps_falling_launch
Finally, Michael Phelps broke something that wasn't a world record -- HIS ASS -- taking a nasty spill while crowd surfing in a Vegas nightclub this week ... and TMZ has the footage!

Phelps -- who's STILL in party mode after the London Games -- hit up XS nightclub Monday night, and for some reason thought it would be a good idea to crowd surf inside an inflatable raft.

It was not ... because the 18-time gold medalist barely made it a few feet before toppling backwards onto his ass.

Thankfully, we're told he was okay -- but the video's still awesome. Check it out.

Thanks to our friends at papUrazzi.com for the clip.

Tareq Salahi

Crashes Photo with

HOW DOES HE DO IT???
 Just three years after successfully crashing a White House state dinner, cuckolded "Real Housewives" star Tareq Salahi somehow posed in the same photo as legendary ex-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

The photo was snapped Wednesday at an event on Capitol Hill for Congressman Joe Walsh -- and Tareq tells TMZ, he was actually invited this time.

FYI -- Tareq is currently running for Governor of Virginia ... which probably explains what he's doing hobnobbing with DC's political elite.

Still ... no picture will ever rival Bill Clinton surrounded by porn stars.

Dwight Howard

My Back Is Healthy

Enough to FREAK-DANCE!

EXCLUSIVE

Dwight Howard gave his back one final test last night before he gets ready to make his Los Angeles Lakers debut ... by getting his grind on with a few girls in Sin City.

In the video, D12 can be seen dancing on a stage with a very attractive woman ... but then he calls an older woman on stage (still attractive in her own right) and gets down with her too!

Howard is scheduled to make his debut in Las Vegas on Sunday against the Sacramento Kings. From the looks of this video, he should do just fine.

Matt Kemp

Takes His Busted

Shoulder Out Clubbing

EXCLUSIVE

101012_matt_kemp_v2_launch
With his arm in a sling, Los Angeles Dodgers superstar Matt Kemp took his busted left shoulder out clubbing Tuesday night ... just FOUR DAYS after undergoing surgery.

Kemp -- who had arthroscopic work done on his rotator cuff and shoulder -- and the Angels' Torii Hunter hit up Supperclub in Hollywood Tuesday night ... where they battled crowds and the dreaded rose-seller lady on the way out.

Kemp seemed to be in good spirits for a guy who won't be able to swing a bat for the next three months.

Buuuuut ... Kemp just signed a $160 MILLION contract .... so is it a smart move to take your tender, vulnerable shoulder to a place packed with crowds and drunk people?

On the other hand, it's not like the Dodgers have a game anytime soon.

Justin Bieber

Beer Pong

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber playing beer pong
He might not be enrolled in school ... but Justin Bieber is definitely getting a taste of the college experience ... 'cause we got a photo of the Biebs playing an intense game of BEER PONG.

Even though he's underage, we know Bieber pounded some beer during the game ... just like every other underage college kid across the country.

The question -- which country?

One source connected with Bieber -- who was not there -- says the game went down on Canadian soil ... or in Georgia (he travels a lot, it's hard to keep track). Either way, the source says it happened a year and a half ago, which would have made Bieber 17-years-old ... and too young to legally booze in either country.

Another source -- who was there -- swears it happened in Alabama back in June ... which still makes Biebs too young to booze.

Still, one question remains -- why the hell is he wearing a backpack?

Karrueche Tran

CLUBBING

without Chris Brown

EXCLUSIVE

100812_tran_launch
She's single ... and it appears Chris Brown's ex-GF is ready to mingle -- 'cause Karrueche Tran hit up the L.A. club scene this weekend on a serious girls' night out. 

Tran and two of her girlfriends rolled up to Greystone Manor in Hollywood in a tricked out blue Porsche Panamera shortly after midnight Monday morning.

As we previously reported, Tran was pissed when she saw Brown's bizarre breakup video statement ... in which he questioned if it's possible to love two people at once.

Karrueche wasn't in the mood to test out the theory for herself last night -- she and her friends left the club shortly before 2 AM without any dudes.

Brittany Kerr

Parties w/ Tiger's Mistress

(No Homes Wrecked)

EXCLUSIVE

Brittany Kerr partying with Jamie Grubbs
Brittany Kerr's friends may have been rubbing off on her ... 'cause before she hooked up with a very married country singer, Kerr was partying with a girl who knows a thing or two about home-wreckin' ... Tiger Woods mistress Jamie Grubbs.

TMZ obtained pics of the former "American Idol" contestant ragin' with Grubbs at a bar earlier this year -- and sources connected to the ladies tell us they've been friends for a while.

We're told the two initially met while working together at an L.A. bar ... and hit it off.

Of course, Grubbs shot to fame when it was revealed she was one of a bazillion women Tiger was nailin' behind his wife's back.

These days, Grubbs is still screwing around with a married man -- her brand new husband.

Lil Wayne

To Be Blunt ...

What's He Smokin??

EXCLUSIVE

0_18q5kzq4
Now we're not sayin' Lil Wayne got stoned at his 30th bday party in Hollywood on Thursday ... but the guy was definitely smokin' something that bares a striking resemblance to a fatty blunt ... and TMZ has the footage.

Now, if ... and ONLY IF ... Wayne WAS puffin' on weed, it could spell BIG TROUBLE for the rapper ... because he's still on probation from a 2008 drug and weapons case ... and he's been ordered to keep his nose clean.

Of course, since Weezy is only on informal probation and probably won't be tested for drugs anytime soon, there's really no way anyone can know for sure what Weezy was smokin' that night ... except Weezy.

In other words -- no worries.

TMZ spoke with Mack Maine, President of Young Money, who tells us Wayne was puffin' on an Al Capone Cigar that night ... and nothin' else.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. & Ray J

$50k on Strippers

Money NOT Well Spent

Exclusive Photos

0928_ray_j_mayweather_stripper_launchFloyd Mayweather Jr. and Ray J. sent a club full of strippers home VERY happy this week -- because they dropped $50,000 on the ladies ... and you might say the fellas overspent.

Floyd, Ray J. and their money team posse strolled into Diamonds of Atlanta with serious stacks Wednesday night -- Floyd carried his in a Louis Vuitton bag -- and we're told they made it rain all night.

Now, based on the pics ... everyone had a great time -- including Joseline from VH1's "Love & Hip Hop." But here's the thing, if you're spending $50k ... don't you expect top of the line talent?

Just sayin'.

Sofia Vergara

ASS-SHAKING

Emmy Celebration

9/24/2012 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

092412_sofia_vergara_launch_v4Sofia Vergara celebrated "Modern Family's" big Emmy win last night by shaking her ass like a CHAMPION in a tight sexy dress ... and TMZ has ALL of the incredible jiggly footage.

It all went down at the HBO Emmy Party at the Pacific Design Center -- when Sofia stormed into the place around 1 AM with the urge to dance her face off in her ultra-skin tight dress.

Sofia -- clearly excited her show won the statue for Best Comedy Series-- went straight to the center of the party and began gyrating to Gloria Estefan's "Conga."

With the crowd egging her on, Vergara requested the DJ play the Enrique Iglesias track, "I Like It"... and of course, he obliged.

Congrats to Sofia ... and whoever told her to wear that dress out last night -- you deserve a gold star.
