Lupita Nyong'o

Dress Returned

To Scene of the Crime!

2/27/2015 3:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0227-lupita-nyongo-dress-TMZ-04Lupita Nyong'o's Oscar gown was returned to The London West Hollywood Friday afternoon where it was taken 2 days earlier ... and the thief called TMZ to tell us where it could be found and added it was a worthless fake.

A guy called us at around 2:30 PM Friday and said he had taken the dress from Lupita's hotel room after he noticed the door was ajar. He said he and others took 2 pearls off of the dress and took them to the garment district in downtown L.A. ... where they were told they weren't real.

The thief says he decided to take the dress back to the London in a garment bag that was inside a trash bag that he deposited in a 2nd floor bathroom adjacent to a fitness center. 

We contacted the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. and gave them the info. They went over to the hotel and retrieved the bag and they found a garment bag with the dress inside.

Law enforcement says they were told the Calvin Klein dress was worth $150K, but the thief says it's almost worthless. 

The thief told us he returned the bag and called us because he wanted the world to know "Hollywood's fake bulls**t."

Wiz Khalifa

Gotcha Amber!

I Just Threw a BD Party for Our Kid

2/27/2015 11:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa Birthday PartyWiz Khalifa believes in the motto, "If you don't succeed ..." because he threw a belated birthday party for Sebastian and this time the kid showed. 

Wiz threw the bash at his home in Silver Lake Thursday. It was almost a carbon copy of the party he tried hosting last weekend, when Amber and 2-year-old Sebastian were no-shows.  

Amber was not present this time around, which apparently was just fine with Wiz. He used his custody time to bring friends and family together to celebrate the BD. 

Here's the good news ... Amber's name wasn't even mentioned, which is at least one small step in lowering the volume in what has become a super-bitter custody war.

The party was pirate-themed, so it's too bad Amber didn't show. Imagine her walking the plank.

Zendaya

I'm So Over Dreadlocks

And the Whole Giuliana Thing

2/27/2015 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE


Zendaya Coleman is locks free, but not 'cause she felt bullied by Giuliana Rancic ... it's because they're too damn tight.

The Disney star was in Hollywood Thursday night, walking arm in arm with her dad (who has locks), when a photog asked if she's still pissed at Giuliana for jumping to conclusions about her follicle choices on the Oscars red carpet.

It's clear Zendaya has buried the hatchet and she're ready to move on -- but also ... pretty interesting to see she's already ditched the very hairstyle that created all the fuss.     

La Toya Jackson

Engagement Off

2/27/2015 7:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022715_latoya_jackson_launchLa Toya Jackson was out to dinner with the man we thought was her fiancé, but it turns out ... they called off their engagement and didn't tell anyone.  

They seemed serious as they left Mastro's Thursday night.

La Toya chimed in from the passenger seat that Jeffre Phillips was a truth-teller. When our photog scoffed, Jeffre reiterated.

The couple got engaged last June.  

Rick Ross

I'm Still Gunning for Dolphins Ownership

2/26/2015 3:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022615_rick_ross_launchRick Ross says he still wants to be Tha Boss of the Miami Dolphins ... telling TMZ Sports he "can't wait" for team officials to invite him to become a minority owner. 

As we previously reported, Ross met with the Dolphins last year -- and said he was willing and able to buy a piece of the team ... just like Serena Williams, Gloria Estefan and others. 

But the hold up is the Dolphins ... who ultimately decide which rich people they'll "invite" into the ownership group and when to invite them.

So, when we saw Ross out in NYC Wednesday night, we had to ask if he was still into the idea ... or if all of the waiting had turned him off. 

Check out the clip ... it's clear Ross is willing to be patient to get what he wants. 

BONUS -- Ross also screws with our photog ... and it's pretty funny. 

Jas Prince

You Only Get ONE Warning, Birdman

Pay Up My Drake Fee Now!

2/26/2015 7:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022615_jas_prince_launchThe clock is ticking very loudly for Birdman -- because the guy who discovered Drake says he's done talking about the millions he's owed for hooking up Cash Money with Drizzy.

Jas Prince talked to us about the lawsuit he recently filed ... as he was leaving Mr. Chow in Bev Hills. We asked if there's been any progress with Birdman on the financial front, and it's clear he -- like Lil Wayne and Turk -- doesn't have much left to say about the debt.

Keep in mind ... it was Jas' dad, James Prince, who issued a very threatening "courtesy call" to Birdman.

Watch the vid -- sounds like the whole Prince family is getting impatient.

Bobbi Kristina

No Signs of Improvement

Still in a Coma

2/26/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0225-bobbi-kristina-instagram-01

Bobbi Kristina is not getting better. She is still unresponsive, in a coma, and showing no signs of getting better.

Family sources tell TMZ ... stories that Bobbi Kristina is being taken out of her coma are not accurate. We're told the only change in treatment is that doctors tried weaning her off certain meds to see if she might react but nothing happened. She's in the same condition she's been in for weeks.

Our sources say there have been signs of organ deterioration but she's still basically in the same, unresponsive condition she's been in since a few days after the accident.

As for the tracheotomy, we're told doctors performed the procedure not because she was getting better, but because it's standard operating procedure when a patient might linger in a comatose state for a long period of time.

Our sources say it's possible Bobbi Kristina could hang on for a long period of time in the same state, despite signs of organ failure. It's ultimately up to Bobby Brown to decide how long she'll live in that state.

EXCLUSIVE

022515_romeo_miller_launch_v2Add Romeo Miller to the group of people who think 10-year-olds shouldn't make college plans ... 'cause the ex-child star tells TMZ Sports the fact that schools are offering scholarships to LeBron James Jr. is bad for everyone. 

LeBron James Jr. -- aka "Bronny" -- has been tearing it up on the court ... creating RIDICULOUS highlights while leading his 4th grade squad to an undefeated 2-month run. 

In fact, his famous says colleges have been reaching out ... and it's been pissing him off -- claiming universities should face SANCTIONS for going after kids that young. 

Enter Romeo ... who wasn't just a kid star, but also played college ball at USC ... and he tells TMZ Sports he's right with Team LeBron on the issue.

"It's not good business, kids need to be kids."

Check out the clip -- Romeo says he knows what the James family is going through, because his little brother is a top-ranked baller too ... but his father Master P has figured out an effective way to put a stop to out-of-line recruiters.  

Listen to the man ... if only because his girlfriend is unbelievably hot.

Marshawn Lynch --

My Movie Sucks

... I Want It Changed

2/25/2015 3:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Marshawn Lynch thinks the biopic about his life growing up in Oakland is TERRIBLE and is demanding wholesale changes to the project before it can be released ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

A four-minute-plus "promo" for "Family First the Marshawn Lynch Story" -- which stars Lynch as himself -- was released Tuesday and we're told Marshawn went Beast Mode when he saw it ... in a bad way.

"It was the quality, It doesn't look like some sh*t nobody would want their name attached to" ... one source close to Marshawn tells us.

We're told Marshawn thought the film (which was his idea) was going to look like a big budget Hollywood affair ... but, in his cinematic opinion, ultimately felt the sound, editing, and lighting were "not good at all." 

The news came as a shock to the film's director Mario Bobino -- who says he was blindsided by Marshawn's less-than-encouraging take on the project. 

"I've known Marshawn his whole life. All of the sudden he's mad at me and now doesn't want the film to see the light of day. I'm upset by this because he fully committed to see the project through and now he wants out," Bobino tells us. 

Mario says he met with some of Lynch's reps Wednesday and temporarily agreed to remove the clip from the Internet while he makes some changes ... but insists the movie is coming out "no matter what."

He also claims the mega rich NFL superstar's actions are hurting the other actors who appear in the movie ... including family members.

"I'm just upset and disappointed in Marshawn. Why are you afraid for the world to know who you really are? By blocking the film, it screws his mom and brother. Get out of that shell dude!"

Shopping for a new home can be liberating -- and it certainly was for Bey's girls ... which got some freedom and sunshine during a lunch break at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood.

As we've reported ... Jay & Beyonce have spent several months searching for the perfect L.A. house to purchase and make their West Coast HQ.

Just a feeling, but something's gonna open up for them soon.

Wiz Khalifa Partying StrippersAmber Rose wouldn't let Wiz Khalifa throw a birthday party with their kid -- according to Wiz -- so he settled for a wild party with strippers.

According to our strip club sources -- and these photos we obtained -- Wiz was droppin hundos Monday night alongside Snoop Dogg and Ty Dolla $ign at L.A.'s Ace Of Diamonds.

We're told the crew let tens of thousands slip through the g-string adorned cracks that night.

This probably won't help Wiz win his war with Amber -- or earn him a parent of the year award.

Then again ... strippers' kids gotta eat too.

Osbourne reminded fans she's friends with Zendaya -- who herself blasted Rancic for making such an "outrageously offensive" stereotypical comment.

It sounds like no one involved is buying Giuliana's claim her remarks "had NOTHING to do with race." update_graphic_red_bar4:30 PM PT-- Looks like Kelly has pull ... Giuliana just apologized again -- this time on the air during "E! News."
