Cardi B Her Team Telling People She's Pregnant!!!

2/14/2018 1:00 AM PST

Cardi B is pregnant ... is what members of her team told people during Super Bowl weekend ... TMZ has learned. 

Cardi performed at several events in Minneapolis, one of which was the Maxim party. At that event there were 2 VIP areas ... one at the side of the stage that was reserved for talent and football players, and the other in the back of the venue which was reserved specifically for Cardi and her entourage.

Our sources say after Cardi performed, a venue staffer asked her team if they could escort her back to her VIP room, where alcohol was flowing. One of Cardi's reps then said she didn't want to be in a "party atmosphere" and preferred to stay in the area by the stage and drink Fiji water. The rep then told the staffer Cardi was 3 to 4 months pregnant.

Cardi and her people have repeatedly denied she's pregnant. She said on Instagram, she wasn't pregnant, saying, "No bitch I'm just getting fat. Let me fat in peace." 

OKC Thunder Superstars Post Blowout Blow Out!!! Hotspot Hoppin' After Lakers Loss

2/9/2018 7:45 AM PST

Paul George, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony aren't gonna let a 106-81 loss to the Lakers pups get them down, 'cause all 3 men hit the hottest spots in L.A. after getting stomped at Staples.

PG and Melo got the night started at Craig's, grabbing some food while George deftly dodged all those Lakers questions. Guessing they just wanted to lick those post-loss wounds on a full stomach, right?

WRONG, 'cause later they met up with Russ at Poppy -- a big L.A. late night hot spot -- where the guys got a little turnt up and seemed to be in good spirits.

BTW ... Anthony and Westbrook didn't play in the game, and we're not sure whether or not that's better or worse for the basketball gods ... 'cause we're pretty sure the party gods don't care.

Cardi B Clubs Call for Armed Backup ... Ready for Crips Threats

2/8/2018 12:50 AM PST

Cardi B's feud with the Crips is setting off a red alert, and the L.A. nightclubs where she's appearing for NBA All-Star Weekend will be rolling DEEP with armed security ... TMZ has learned.

Cardi has an exclusive deal to host at 3 clubs next weekend -- all under the same ownership -- and our sources say they're preparing for the worst ... as in, possible gang violence.

TMZ broke the story ... Cardi's been flooded with violent threats from Crips who feel she dissed them by captioning a pic of herself in a blue fur coat, "I hate wearing Flue."

We're told the clubs -- Murano, Penthouse and Ace of Diamonds -- are tripling the number of armed security guards they'd normally hire. They've also put off-duty cops on the payroll, who'll be in uniform at the clubs.

Our sources say club management held an emergency meeting Wednesday to discuss how to handle the crisis. Canceling was never an option -- we're told Cardi's getting around $250k for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday night gigs, and her team hasn't made a peep about pulling out.

Still, we're told club owners are taking the threats seriously, and want to make sure Cardi and all club patrons are safe.

The Ivy Gets Bomb Threat Laced with Homophobia 'I'm Going to Blow You All Up!!!'

2/5/2018 12:05 AM PST

The Ivy -- world-famous for drawing in celebs from Jennifer Lopez and Sofia Vergara to Rob Lowe and Magic Johnson -- got a frightening call from a man yelling homophobic slurs and threatening to blow up the joint ... and cops are investigating. 

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the call came 4 days before Christmas when a man said, "You're all pieces of shit, all of you are trash." The maitre d' asked the caller how he could help him, and the man replied, "You're all a bunch of fudge packers, I'm going to blow you all up."

The employee jotted down the guy's number, thanks to caller ID, and called cops to report the incident. LAPD got a search warrant to track down the suspect. 

Cops are on the hunt for the culprit.

Salt Bae Come to My New Steakhouse ... And I'll Feed You with a Knife

1/27/2018 7:47 AM PST

Salt Bae is expanding his restaurant empire ... he's opened a steakhouse in the Big Apple.

The social media celeb opened Nusr-Et Steakhouse in Midtown Manhattan where he did what made him famous ... sprinkling salt in dramatic fashion on grilled steaks.

He interacted with customers including rapper Bryson Tiller who was tucked away in the VIP section. As a matter of fact he even sliced a piece of meat and fed Bryson from a large knife.

It's Salt Bae's 9th restaurant. The reviews are .... mixed.

Todd Gurley Hits L.A. Hotspot 2 Days Before Playoff Game

1/5/2018 6:37 AM PST

Todd Gurley had a big Thursday night -- hitting up the Clippers game and then Delilah (popular L.A. hotspot) ... just 2 days before the Rams take the field against the Falcons in the NFL playoffs. 

TMZ Sports was at Delilah (a swanky restaurant and lounge) when we saw Gurley cruising in around 11:30 PM. He's such a big star in L.A., all he had to do was nod at the bouncer to get inside. 

No word on when he left or if he even had a sip of alcohol (guessing he didn't) ... he may have just been stopping by to say hi to a friend. 

Of course, the Rams play ATL in the Wild Card Round on Saturday -- and if Gurley, who's on fire right now, runs over the Falcons, no one will care about his night habits. 

If they lose, however ... 

Nightclub Brawl Twins Catch Brutal Beatdown!!! While Rockets Stars Party

12/4/2017 7:04 AM PST

The Houston Rockets 23-point thrashing of the Lakers was NOT the worst L of the night -- that dishonor went to twin bros who got obliterated in a massive nightclub brawl!

We got video of the insanity just as it started Sunday night outside Nightingale in WeHo. Unclear what sparked it, but it's crystal clear about 4 or 5 guys went off on the twins. Fists, feet ... even shoes were used as weapons -- and you clearly hear a chick yell, "I'm gonna cut yo' s**t!"

When security guards broke up one beating, another broke out just across the street. Order was eventually restored, and shortly after ... Rockets stars James Harden and Eric Gordon came strolling out of Nightingale.

We'd say they have horrible timing, but the Lakers would beg to differ.

Keke Palmer Dancer Blew My Mind ... Crazy Balloon Swallowing!!!

9/6/2017 12:40 AM PDT

Keke Palmer had the best view for one of the craziest, most suggestive balloon tricks ever ... and she still has no idea how the chick pulled it off. 

The singer and "Scream Queens" star was hosting a party at Opera Nightclub in Atlanta when a dancer/magician pulled her onstage and stuck a long balloon in her mouth. Keke just had to hold the tip ... while the dancer went to work.

As magician's assistants go -- Keke played the part well. But the real hero here is clearly the dancer who just put every other balloon animal artist to shame.

Only one question remains: WHERE'S THE FREAKIN' BALLOON??!!

Joseline Hernandez Done with Maternity Leave ... Back to the Club (Work)

1/17/2017 9:07 AM PST

Joseline Hernandez is getting back to work after giving birth a little over 2 weeks ago -- and while the club might be an odd job site -- her baby's definitely not going hungry.

The 'Love & Hip Hop' star -- and Stevie J's latest baby mama -- made her first club appearance at Museum Bar in Atlanta over the weekend, and took home $10k just to dance in the middle of 8 bodyguards.

Correction: we're told she also rapped a few bars and drank some champagne -- and even took a pay cut from her usual $15k appearance fee. Still, not a bad night on the job for a brand new mom.

Joseline ate well too ... she demanded shrimp and steak tacos fresh off the grill. Mama ain't playin'.
