Blac Chyna

Show Me Proof

Tyga Didn't Give Kylie My Hand-Me-Down

8/16/2015 7:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Blac Chyna got the last laugh in the Mercedes G-Wagon debacle, jumping into her new ride and vaguely casting doubt on what really happened with her vehicular hand-me-down.

Chyna was leaving Playhouse in Hollywood Saturday night, when we asked about our story that Tyga demanded she return the G-Wagon he got her when they were together.  He painted it red and the next thing we knew Kylie Jenner was behind the wheel ... and it sure looked like a re-gift.

Tyga's people insisted he did not give the G-Wagon to Kylie ... she just happened to be driving it to her birthday dinner.

But Chyna now says she wants receipts ... proof.  It unclear what she's really saying, but she looks so good you should watch.

Khloe Kardashian

Lamar Who??

Gets Cozy With James Harden For His BDay

8/15/2015 2:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian clearly didn't have Lamar Odom on her mind Friday night when she partied in Houston to celebrate James Harden's birthday. 

The two were at Aristocratlifes Engineroom for Harden's upcoming 25th ... and we're told the two were VERY close through the whole event -- dancing together for several hours. 

Harden celebrated with other NBA players Zach Randolph and Pat Beverley and there were posters congratulating him on his $200 million Adidas deal throughout the venue.

You might remember ... it was earlier this week where Khloe was allegedly ambushed by ex-hubby Lamar Odom outside of a Soul Cycle class. 

One thing's for sure -- Khloe seems to have put Lamar behind her. 0815-sub-khloe-harden-tmz-01

Terrence Howard

Here's What Lucious Would Do

In My Court Case

8/15/2015 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Terrence Howard can't talk about Friday's testimony -- that his make-out scene with Jennifer Hudson triggered an insane reaction from then-wife Michelle Ghent -- but he was quick to tell us how Lucious Lyon would handle the court case ... and it's pretty violent.

Speaking of Lucious .... Terrence was chatty on the subject of "Empire," and whether all the guest stars in season 2 could ruin the show's vibe.

Rihanna, Lewis Hamilton

Together Again

8/15/2015 7:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0815-rihanna-hamilton-splash-01It's getting clearer by the day ... Lewis Hamilton is one lucky dude, because all signs point to a relationship with Rihanna.

The race car driver and Riri were partying at Griffin nightclub Friday, in NYC's Meatpacking District.

It seems it's all on the QT, because they arrived separately. But they've been at the same place in enough towns and countries lately to fuel rumors.

They were both at 1OAK in NYC Tuesday, and partying in Barbados last week.

But the theory has holes ... after leaving Griffin, Rihanna and Akon's brother Boo went to breakfast together.

Rick Ross

Judge OK's Travel

But Only for Work

8/13/2015 2:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Rick Ross can finally get back on his "Boss" grind ... a judge gave him approval to start traveling on biz trips, but there are several restrictions -- including an ankle monitor. 

Ross was in an Atlanta court Thursday a happy man -- since his travel restrictions were lifted. Ross has been unable to leave town since he posted $2 million bail last month in his assault case.

In court, Rick was told he must give the D.A. 5 days notice of any travel, including flight times, where he's staying, and why he has to go. He gets a 2-hour grace period to get to his house, once he returns to Atlanta ... so he better pray for NO traffic.

BTW ... Rick Ross' voluptuous friend was in court today. Just a hunch ... she'll be on the business trips too.

Diddy

UCLA Is Cool ...

With My Son, At Least

Exclusive Details

0813_p_diddy_UCLA_instagramDiddy's son, Justin Combs, better be ready for two-a-days, 'cause he's back on the football field for the UCLA Bruins ... who've buried the mess of Diddy's alleged kettlebell fight with a coach.

We're told head coach Jim Mora met with Justin last week to hash things out once and for all, and move forward ...so the junior cornerback could get back to practice.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Diddy was arrested for the alleged assault of Bruins strength and conditioning coach, Sal Alosi, back in June. The D.A. eventually rejected the case for felony charges, but the LA. City Attorney is still considering filing a misdemeanor.

Our UCLA sources say Diddy is not allowed at practices, at least for now.

Still, Diddy's showing the team love ... posting a pic of Justin practicing with the caption, "GO BRUINS!!!!!!!!!"

Michael Jackson fans hoping to visit his legendary family home in Encino, CA might not get their wish ... if Jermaine Jackson has his way.

Jermaine told our photog he's dead set against the idea of turning the home -- where MJ recorded some of his biggest hits  --  into a tourist attraction ... something Michael's Estate is considering doing.

The bad news for Jermaine is he has no say in the matter -- still, he explained why he thinks it's a bad idea ... even for people NOT named Jackson.

EXCLUSIVE

0811-shane-jin-mosley-tmz-getty-01"Sugar" Shane Mosley firmly believes his ex-wife was married to another man at the same time as him ... because he has papers nailing down the date she divorced the guy. 

Sources close to Mosley tell TMZ Sports ... Shane's lawyers obtained a NY State Certificate of Dissolution of Marriage for Jin Mosley, dated Sept. 26, 2006. Shane and Jin were married from 2002 to 2011.

Do the math ... it all adds up to bigamy, as far as Shane's concerned.

We're told Shane presented the divorce doc in court last week ... in hopes of getting a judge to freeze Jin's assests. TMZ broke the story ... Shane's hoping to get back all or some of the cash and assets he forked over to her when they divorced -- since they were never really married, he believes.

We're told the judge has not ruled yet on Shane's request.

Jin has not returned our calls for comment.

EXCLUSIVE

0811-busta-rhymes-tmz-03Busta Rhymes is under investigation for allegedly threatening to slap fans at the BET Awards.

Kim Simpson says it all started when her friend accidentally bumped into the rapper while dancing at the June awards show. They apologized, but she says Busta went nuts, warning, “I’ll bite you and not that kinda bite” if it happened again.

Things escalated later when the two gals started snapping pics with reality star Deelishis, and Busta somehow got caught in the camera flash crossfire.

Kim filed a police report and cops are trying to find Busta to interview him.

We reached out to Busta's lawyer ... he had no comment.

Stephen Jackson

I'm the Best NBA Player Alive

... On The Mic

8/11/2015 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Former NBA player Stephen Jackson says he can take Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant, and Chris Webber ... when it comes to rapping, and even calls out Kobe as a total hip-hop poser.

Jackson's been focused on his rap career for years, and while he hasn't had a breakthrough hit song yet -- he still believes his skills put all other NBA ballers to shame. 

He's got plenty of comp these days -- with guys like Damian Lillard, Lou Williams and Lance Stephenson all laying down tracks.

Jackson gives a couple of those guys props -- but absolutely blows up Kobe's rap career. He ain't the first, and when you listen to the Mamba's verses ... maybe Captain Jack has a point.

Dr. Dre

Straight Outta Malibu ...

0810_dr_dre_gallery_launch2Dr. Dre celebrated his new album "Compton" the only way a near-billionaire from Compton should -- by chillin' on his balcony ... in Malibu.

With a skywriter above his head giving the Doc props for his latest album -- expected to debut at #2 -- Dre hung out with some friends Monday at his crib in the 'Bu ... no doubt toasting the record and pre-partying for the "Straight Outta Compton" premiere.

All these shots are missing is a Goodyear blimp reading ... "Ice Cube's a pimp."

Chris Brown

Gets Smart

... Dodges Possible DUI?

8/10/2015 8:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown is a responsible adult -- let that sink in ... and then watch him make maybe the smartest decision we've ever seen him make ... on camera, anyway.

Chris voluntarily handed over the keys to his brand new $200k Rezvani Beast on Sunday ... right after walking out of Penthouse nightclub in West Hollywood.

It's pretty amazing and commendable to watch unfold -- Chris actually jumped behind the wheel of his exotic supercar, ready to roll.

But watch, there's a quick discussion with a friend ... and then the hand-off to another friend.  

They grow up so fast.
