Fat Joe Steak House Needs Lesson ... From Rosa Parks

8/18/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Fat Joe wanted to lean back after a good meal at Ruth's Chris Steak House ... but the rapper instead got booted for a dress code violation he says was reminiscent of the Old South. 

The big man from the Bronx was stunned last week when he and his crew were asked to leave the Ruth's Chris Steak House in North Carolina ... and even more perplexed by the fact the manager who made the request was black. 

Fat Joe says attire has never been an issue for him or his entourage at high-end restaurants around the world ... and he's especially hurt that they were hassled by someone they felt should be on their side.

Black Panther & Robin Join Forces For ... Super Power Lunch

8/14/2018 10:50 AM PDT

Chadwick Boseman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt crossed comic book lines for a little POW wow while chowing down ... superhero costumes, sadly, not included.

The Black Panther and Robin grabbed a bite to eat Monday afternoon in L.A. and, judging by the huge grins on their mugs ... it hit the spot. We're guessing they didn't compare Marvel and DC box office numbers. Let's be honest, Joseph wouldn't be smiling if that was the case.

Maybe King T'Challa's just in the market for a new sidekick? In yo' face, Dark Knight!

Anthony Bourdain Artist Honors Celeb Chef With Lifelike Mural

6/15/2018 7:04 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

While the aura of Anthony Bourdain lives on, fans who drive down Wilshire in West L.A. will get an extra reminder of the celebrity chef ... thanks to an awesome new painting by a popular street muralist.

Jonas Never completed his Bourdain mural Friday in Santa Monica, on the side wall of a new restaurant and bar called Gramercy. He tells TMZ ... he was hired by the joint to paint its signage lettering, and asked if he could also do the mural as a tribute.

Never says he saw how the world was affected by Bourdain's suicide and the legacy he left behind, so he felt compelled to find a way to honor him. Gramercy's an L.A. joint that aims for a New York Lower East Side vibe ... so they agreed it was the perfect spot for his art.

We're told Jonas did the mural for free. His murals can be seen all over L.A. -- from Venice to Burbank -- and outside of Floyd's barbershop locations. 

LeAnn Rimes Down to Collab w/ Danielle Bregoli!!

6/1/2018 11:12 AM PDT

Danielle Bregoli might not have known who LeAnn Rimes was, but LeAnn definitely knows who she is ... and on top of that, she's down to collaborate with Bhad Bhabie!!

We got LeAnn heading into the Abbey in WeHo on Thursday night and told her we schooled Danielle on LeAnn's legacy. After all, Danielle had just become the youngest female artist since '97 to score 3 Billboard Hot 100 hits. Last person to do it? LeAnn.

But when we told Danielle about this she wondered who LeAnn Rimes was ... asking if she's Busta Rhymes' sister. Hilarious. 

Check it out ... LeAnn's down to hook up with Danielle in the studio. And all we can say ... wonder what they'll come up with to blend their unique styles.

BTW ... LeAnn was SLAYING on her way to the Abbey. Pure fire. 

Cardi B Wears Ridiculous Dress ... To Hide Pregnancy!!!

4/7/2018 7:11 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

It's just getting absurd ... Cardi B barely made it through the door for her performance Friday night in Miami .... her dress was so damn big, and of course we know why.

Cardi performed at E11EVEN nightclub in Miami, arriving at around 2:30 AM with a new platinum do and a metallic red and pink striped dress.  

TMZ broke the story Cardi is pregnant, but she's been denying and then hiding it, although the secret is now impossible to keep under wraps.

She made enough money for a baby stroller for sure ... check out the dollar bills on the stage. 

Cardi B may be pregnant, but it's not cramping her style. She's flying to NYC today for her performance on "SNL."

Usain Bolt Bump & Grind With Insanely Hot Model ... Pass Is Still Valid?

4/7/2018 12:20 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Here's a video that makes us wonder if Usain Bolt's "pass" from his GF is still valid ... the Jamaican sprinter is grinding up on one of the hottest women on earth.

The lady's name is Zahra Elise, and she has nearly 1 million followers on Instagram because of her incredible, natural gifts and the fact that she's a "Wild 'N Out" girl/video model.

Bolt and Zahra are apparently cool, because there's video of the two grinding on each other down in the Caribbean recently with a caption on it that reads "Missed you too." (She posted it).

Of course, we know Bolt has a longtime GF, Kasi Bennett, but we also know that she doesn't seem to mind UB gettin' his dagger game (dancing) on with the ladies in the club ... THE GRIND PASS.

BTW ... we reached out to Zahra -- she says they're just friends, anyway ... and you're just about to look at the gallery of her below.

JuJu Smith-Schuster I Got Pantsed By a TMZ Photog!!!

3/31/2018 6:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

JuJu Smith-Schuster may be one of the best rookies in the NFL, but that's not enough to get him into a fancy restaurant when he's rockin' sweats, so our photog came to the rescue ... for a price.

JuJu hit up Mastro's in Bev Hills Friday night, but the doorman gave him a 10 yard penalty for violating the dress code. The Steelers wide receiver thought he could walk down the street and buy some fancy duds, but the stores were all closed.

Enter Dan the man ... who offers JuJu a trade ... Dan's pants -- which he guarantees are non-sharted -- for the sweats. But Dan's no fool, and he offers up a deal that could score JuJu a butter cake.

You gotta watch ...it's hilarious.  

Joel Embiid Drops $12K on Booze ... at 24th Bday Bash!!

3/19/2018 11:51 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Joel Embiid turned up in a BIG way for his 24th birthday -- dropping 12 RACKS on alcohol and partying the night away with smokin' hot models and 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin!!

The boozy bday bash went down at LIV Nightclub at Fontainebleau Saturday in Miami Beach ... where we're told the NBA star bought out the bar -- coppin' Magnum bottles of Dom Perignon for all his thirsty friends in attendance.

Other than Rubin, the celeb guest list included Nick Cannon (who was DJ'ing), Diddy's son Justin Combs, Victoria Secret model Jasmine Tookes and IG smokeshow Jocelyn Chew -- who did her best Marilyn Monroe impression and popped out of a cake! 

FYI, the Sixers were off the entire weekend -- so we're pretty sure Embiid had all the clubbers trusting the process til early Sunday morning.

Happy bday!!

WWE Superstar Lana Twerk-tastic Pole Dancing ... at Famous Gay Bar!

3/16/2018 7:47 AM PDT
Breaking News

WWE superstar Lana wasn't satisfied with your average Thursday night out ... so, she hopped on stage at an iconic L.A. gay bar and put on a POLE DANCING CLINIC.

And yes, there was plenty of twerking.

The Ravishing Russian hit The Abbey in West Hollywood yesterday ... and showed off all her best moves in a pair of extra-stretchy denims -- shakin' her hips and droppin' it low like her life depended on it!!

No sign of her pro wrestler husband, Rusev ... guessing this was Ladies Night based on all the screaming chicks in the front row.

Fun fact: Lana was actually a backup dancer for huge stars like NellyUsher and Jason Derulo before she crossed over to the WWE.

We like this better. 

Lil Wayne & Birdman Squashing Our Beef But It's a Work in Progress

3/13/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne and Birdman's run-in at LIV Nightclub was nothing out of the ordinary, at least for them, because they've been working on burying the hatchet for months ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the former Cash Money duo tell us the $51 million lawsuit between them is still very much on, but they've managed to separate that from their personal relationship. As our source put it, "They're family and that's bigger than money." 

We're told they've talked several times over the past few months, and although it's no longer the father-son relationship they used to have, they ARE making an attempt to squash the beef. 

As for Sunday night's embrace at LIV -- Wayne had a section reserved downstairs, while Birdman was upstairs. Neither knew the other was there until DJ Stevie J shouted them out. 

Birdman's son, Bryan Jr., came down and said "hello" to Weezy first, before Wayne stopped by Birdman's table where they hugged it out

Tori Spelling Reservations for 7

3/9/2018 6:14 PM PST

Tori Spelling and her husband put on a united front -- with 5 mini-me's in tow -- just days after he called cops to check on her.

Tori and hubby Dean McDermott brought the entire brood to break bread at Black Bear Diner Friday in Tarzana ... looking like a close-knit fam bam. It's a stark contrast to what's unfolded in the last 9 days.

TMZ broke the story ... Dean called cops Wednesday to check on Tori after she left home with one of their kids. It's unclear what had Dean so worried. Cops created a huge scene when they tracked down Tori at a doctor's office. They spoke to her and determined a crime hadn't been committed.

As we reported ... Dean called 911 last week to report she was having some sort of breakdown.

T.I. Houston's, Let's Tackle the Problem ... Learn Our Culture

3/4/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

T.I. isn't just lifting the boycott on Houston's Restaurant, he's going to help the company with diversity training to ensure African-American customers never face racism there again.

We broke the story ... Tip placed a boycott on the Houston's Restaurant chain last year after several alleged incidents of discrimination against African-American customers. The rapper's held several meetings with Houston's execs since then to address the issues, and officially nixed the boycott last week.

T.I. tells us the chain was more than willing to listen, change policies, and even wants him to take on a permanent gig with them moving forward. And no, it's not being a maître d'.

Madonna Dances and Sings To Her Own Song

3/2/2018 10:36 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Madonna let the music take control and found herself in a dance-off ... but she had the upper hand because she was grooving to her own hit track.

Madge hit the dance floor at Catch NYC late Thursday night while celebrating the birthday of her lead dancer, Loic Mabanza. She showed up after midnight with a large Gucci gift bag for Loic, and partied with the crew on the rooftop ... even when the DJ got personal by playing "Everybody."

That's usually a party faux pas, but Madonna and Loic were into it.

We're told Madonna stayed on the floor for a while -- dancing, not only to her classics, but also current hip-hop. We're told DJ Tom Macari was behind the hot playlist. Madonna also showed people pics of her daughter, Mercy James, too.

Jeezy was also in attendance, and snapped a pic with his fellow 'born legend.'
