Nicki Minaj Ex New Girlfriend
You gotta hand it to Safaree Samuels, he knows what he likes -- because TMZ has learned he has moved on from Nicki Minaj to a new singing booty queen ... K. Michelle

According to our K. Michelle sources, she and Samuels (who did not take the breakup with Nicki well) have been getting much closer lately ... talking and texting every night.

We're told the duo spent two hours together in the VIP area of NYC club Stage 48 on Valentine's Day -- and Samuels followed up this week by sending a bouquet of sunflowers ... her favorite. 

Our sources say they're not official, meaning exclusive ... just yet -- but this video K. Michelle posted of herself twerking to Safaree's new song has to count for something!

Serena & Common

BACK TOGETHER??

Exes Hang at Post-Oscar Bash

2/23/2015 8:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0223-serena-williams-commons-twitterYou don't let just anyone hold your Oscar ... which is why it was very interesting when Common let his ex-GF Serena Williams carry his statue around last night ... fueling rumors they could be back on. 

The two were spotted together at the Vanity Fair post-Oscars bash -- and even took a photo together (which Serena curiously posted and then removed from her Instagram page). 

It's especially interesting ... considering that Common has been very open about how much he cared for Serena when they were together -- and even said he thought about marrying her. 

So, back on???

8:25 AM PT -- Gordon just tweeted a screen grab of a text he sent Bobby saying, "Man to man I love your daughter ...  I don't know why you won't let me see her ... Your daughter is going to hate you when she wakes up.  It's not like you know her anyways.  What's her favorite color?  What's her favorite smell, movies, food.  You don't know. I forgive you she won't."

Nick Gordon is refusing to talk to cops about the circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina ending up face down in a bathtub, and he's refusing to tell Bobby Brown as well.

Bobby Brown's lawyer, Chris Brown, says Gordon has refused to cooperate by coming clean with the events that led to the medical emergency and there's no reason to talk to him anymore about giving him a hospital visit.

Brown says, "It appears that Mr. Gordon did not want his understanding of the facts to be subject to the truthful examination of various experts or Bobby Brown himself."

Brown continues, "Mr. Gordon has every right to remain silent and not share his version of events with Bobby Brown," adding, "Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe."

TMZ broke the story ... Nick became the target of a criminal investigation after authorities noticed injuries to Bobbi Kristina's body when she was taken to the hospital.

Jay Z & Beyonce

Can't Find a House, So ...

We're L.A. Renters Now

2/23/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jay Z Beyonce LA HomeBeyonce and Jay Z can't always get what they want -- they've been unable to find the perfect L.A. home to buy ... so, instead they haggled their way into a rental for $150K a month ... and yes, that's a deal.

They're familiar with the crib in ritzy Holmby Hills -- it's the same one they rented last summer on a short term lease ... but our real estate sources tell us they just locked it down for a full year.

We're told the power couple's been itching to move out of the Bev Hills area hotel where they've been living while house hunting -- so they decided to go back to their old digs. 

16,000 sq. ft., 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and an infinity pool with a waterfall ... is one helluva plan B. 

You'll recall, Bey and Jay paid $200K/month for the pad last year -- but we're told they dealt directly with the owner this time and knocked off $50K/mo. ... based on signing a longer lease. 

Even the Carters love a discount.

Wiz Khalifa

Amber's So Cold

She Denied Our Kid His Birthday Party!

Exclusive Details

0222-wiz-khalifa-son-amber-rose-birthday-TWITTER-01Wiz Khalifa threw a big party Saturday for his son's birthday ... but the rapper says his 2 year-old never showed because ex-wife Amber Rose denied the kid a good time out of spite.

Wiz posted sad pics of the party with the caption, "only thing missing was Bash" -- referring to their son Sebastian

Sources close to Wiz say Amber was supposed to bring Sebastian to the party and they would celebrate his birthday together ... as parents.  Wiz says everyone was there and he's heartbroken the boy couldn't celebrate with civil parents.

Khalifa put Amber on blast,  saying, "ive never voiced my true unhappiness out of fear of the person I was with and what she would do to make me more unhappy of anyone knew."

Wiz goes on to champion father's rights, saying, "Standing up for all fathers who need, deserve, or can't find help," adding, "As a man, and a dad you'll feel like, 'I got this.'  But who got us?"  In other words, the system doesn't protect fathers.

022215_amber_rose_launchFor her part, Rose posted videos of their son before and after the party.

She's got way too many feuds going on.

Bobby Brown

Nick Can See Bobbi Kristina

BUT ONLY IF ....

update_graphic_red_bar

9:15 AM PST -- Gordon's attorney says his client his legal team advised Nick to reject Bobby Brown's conditions in order to visit Bobbi Kristina.  He says Nick has repeatedly offered to meet with Bobby in private to clear the air, rather than go through lawyers, but the singer turned Gordon down.

update_grey_gray_bar

Bobby Brown is calling BS on Nick Gordon for suggesting the family won't let him see Bobbi Kristina ... but when you read between the lines it sounds like there's a string attached that Nick won't touch.

Brown lawyer says, "To address the continued and never ending media requests for comment about Mr. Gordon's requests to visit Bobbi Kristina, let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit."

The lawyer won't say what "term" Gordon must meet, but it's pretty apparent.  TMZ broke the story there's a criminal investigation because Bobbi Kristina had visible injuries when she was rushed to the hospital, and Nick is the target of the investigation.  Seems obvious ... Brown wants Nick to talk to cops.

The lawyer certainly hinted he wants Nick to sit down with police, saying, "We are only concerned with individuals that can help Bobbi Kristina and bring resolution to the investigation."

As far as we know Nick has not been interviewed by police and the investigation is ongoing.

Nick made a public plea Saturday night to allow him in the hospital, claiming he's the one who can bring his girlfriend back to life, but Brown's lawyer scoffs, saying, "Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe."

I Can Save Bobbi Kristina

But I Need to See Her

2/21/2015 6:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0221-nick-gordon-getty-01

Nick Gordon is making a public plea to let him in Bobbi Kristina's hospital room, because he believes his presence could save her life.

Nick just tweeted, "Let me in the hospital to see my girl and let her hear my voice  SHE WILL WAKE UP!!!"

Nick is going public because he's getting nowhere with the Brown and Houston family.   He has been barred from the hospital and several members of the Brown family have threatened physical harm if he shows his face.

TMZ broke the story ... there's a criminal investigation because of injuries on Bobbi Kristina's body when paramedics removed her from her home after she was found submerged in the bathtub.  Nick is the target of that investigation.

Bobbi Kristina is hanging on, but as we reported doctors have already advised pulling life support would be a medically sound decision. Bobby Brown has resisted, believing prayer can work miracles.
