The Game Slovenian Fan Creeps in for Selfie ... Doesn't End Well

3/23/2018 12:40 AM PDT
Exclusive Video

One of The Game's fans tried to take a selfie with him while the rapper was mid-song during a concert in Slovenia, and it was the exact opposite of Justin Timberlake's feel-good Super Bowl moment.

Game's currently in Europe on a 45 city tour, which stopped in the land of Melania Trump last week -- and it looked fully lit. This video shows a ton of fans onstage with Game, but one Slovenian took things a little too far.

The dude invaded Game's personal space for a selfie. Ballsy move, and one that did NOT end well for the fan. Either Game's gonna get ya, or his security will.

Or, in this case, both.

Jacquees' Miami Beach Arrest Cop Used 'Excessive Force' on Me ... Hints at Legal Action

3/22/2018 4:00 PM PDT

Jacquees might be gearing up for a potential lawsuit against Miami Beach PD after one of its officers got rough with him during a traffic stop ... according to Jacquees himself.

The singer recorded a video for his fans, and addressed what he calls the "excessive force" a cop used Wednesday while busting Jacquees for allegedly driving without a seat belt.

He stops short of saying he's suing, but he refers to his legal team -- and its advice for him -- enough for you to read between the lines.

We broke the story ... Jacquees was arrested in Miami Beach Wednesday when cops say he refused to hand over his license, or cooperate with the officers. In the video, you can see an officer give him a good, hard yank by his arm.

One positive -- Jacquees says he's physically and mentally okay after the Ocean Drive incident.

Jacquees was booked for failure to obey a lawful command, and for the seat belt violation. He clearly bonded out of jail and is back on the outside.

Bobby V Suspect in Georgia Rape Case

3/22/2018 12:40 AM PDT

Bobby V is listed as the suspect in a rape that allegedly happened last weekend, according to cops now investigating ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the R&B singer was named by a woman who filed a police report in Cobb County, GA early Monday, March 19. We're told the alleged rape occurred Sunday. It's unclear where or what the circumstances were. We do know Bobby lives in the area.

Cops say they have an open investigation into the case, so they're keeping details under wraps for now.

Bobby's rep tells us they are pursuing legal action "against what appears to be a weak yet calculated attempt to obtain financial gain through ulterior motives in the matter." The rep did not say the alleged victim requested money directly from Bobby, but called her version of events an apparent false report.

The rep added, "Bobby takes any allegation against women very seriously. However, false allegations damage true victims of sexual abuse." 

You'll recall ... Bobby claimed he was the victim of an extortion plot last year, when a video surfaced online of him allegedly skipping out on a prostitute without paying.

XXXTentacion Can I Get Off House Arrest, Judge'?' I Gotta Tour to 'Stay Afloat'!

3/21/2018 12:13 PM PDT

12:51 PM PT -- The judge just granted XXX's request, he's officially let off of house arrest. His attorney, David Bogenschutz, tells us XXX and his legal team are very pleased with the decision, and it was warranted based on his performance the last few months. David says, "Hopefully these are the first steps towards complete freedom."

The rapper will submit to monthly drug tests and report his travel.

XXXTentacion is pulling a DMX and asking a judge to let him off house arrest so he can make some cash ... TMZ has learned.

XXX's legal team filed docs, obtained by TMZ, asking a Florida court to remove the rapper's ankle monitor and let him out of the house so he can hit the road and make some touring money after his new record, "?" (the name of the album), hit the shelves last week.

As we reported ... XXX was placed under house arrest after being hit with 15 new felony charges for what prosecutors believe to be witness tampering by coercing his girlfriend into not testifying against him.

According to his attorneys, XXX is gonna be in dire straits financially if he isn't allowed to tour and reap the benefits of his latest work. As is the case with many in the music biz ... XXX insists artists make hardly any dough from the record sales themselves.

XXX's lawyers say he's willing to abide by the same probation terms he was subject to prior to the most recent charges in his domestic violence case ... namely, submitting a travel itinerary, submitting to drug and alcohol tests ... and checking in with a PO early and often.

Considering XXXTentacion "desperately requires" this touring income to "stay afloat" -- according to his team -- he might wanna look to DMX for some guidance. Well, partly ... we suppose.

Kodak Black I Got Keys to My GED ... Judge OKs Prison Tutor

3/21/2018 10:01 AM PDT

Kodak Black might be behind bars, but he's no longer barred from trying to further his education ... TMZ has learned.

A judge has granted the rapper's request to have a tutor visit him while he's serving time in a Florida prison ... according to new legal docs. Kodak requested the assistance because he wants to get his GED. No word if he was granted a laptop ... which he also requested.

We broke the story ... Black was put in solitary confinement for a prison phone call violation, but filed legal docs asking for the tutor while he was in the hole.

Even better news for the rapper -- we're told he was released from solitary Monday.

Kevin Hart Meek Mill Walking Free Will Make The System Better

3/20/2018 6:51 AM PDT

Kevin Hart believes Meek Mill possibly getting his sentence overturned is a beacon of hope for the criminal justice system as a whole ... and he's got a helluva explanation for why.

We got the comedian Monday night leaving Mr. Chow in Bev Hills, where he weighed in on Meek facing the very real possibility of walking free due to a police corruption scandal in Philly, among other things he's arguing ... like an allegedly biased judge overseeing his case.

Kevin sounds pretty optimistic that justice for Meek will have a ripple effect for wrongly imprisoned individuals beyond just their hometown, not to mention the youth as well.

This analysis is very eloquently put here by Mr. Hart ... as acknowledged by none other than Mr. Hart himself. 

Ray J Brandy Skipped Baby Shower ... After Fight w/ Princess Love

3/20/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Ray J and Princess Love's baby shower this weekend was missing two key people -- Ray's sister Brandy and their mom -- and the absence is the result of bad blood ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us that both Brandy and her mother, Sonja Norwood, skipped Ray J and PL's shower Saturday after the women got into a war of words the day before.

We're told Brandy and Sonja attended a gender reveal party Friday for Ray and Princess' soon-to-be-born child -- which is probably gonna be a girl -- and got into it with the mother-to-be over what they perceived to be online shade toward Ray J. 

Apparently, Princess Love had recently tweeted some cryptic messages about cheating ... and not staying in a relationship just because you have a baby with someone. We're told Brandy and Sonja took that to be an unwarranted shot at Ray ... and s*** hit the fan.

Sources say Brandy and Sonja demanded that PL apologize to Ray J, and that started a huge fight. Princess Love told the two ladies to mind their own business ... adding they had no right to weigh in on her relationship since they couldn't keep their own together.

The diss definitely left a mark ... 'cause Brandy and Sonja opted not to attend the couple's shower, and we're told it was absolutely due to the argument.

Happy wife ... pissed blood relatives. That's how that goes, right?

Desiigner's Exposure Case Off the Hook D*** Pics Inconclusive

3/20/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Desiigner won't have to answer for allegedly flashing a NYC motorist -- 'cause the cameras that were in position to capture his penis simply weren't close enough ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us that detectives on Desiigner's exposure case from last month received the video they wanted from surrounding buildings, where the rapper allegedly exposed himself to someone on the street after an apparent road rage run-in.

Thing is, we're told that footage wasn't any help to cops ... 'cause it was shot from way too far away. Sources say the people in the video looked like ants on camera, and it's impossible to tell if Desiigner actually exposed himself. 

Another factor that helped out Desiigner ... the OG video of the incident never showed a clear shot of exposed genitalia, and the alleged victim never came forward to cooperate with the investigation after leaving the scene. 

In other words, the winning defense ... not my penis.

As one source put it to us ... "Looks like Desiigner will skate on this one." BDRRRAAPP!

Meek Mill Dirty Cop + Biased Judge = My Freedom

3/19/2018 1:16 PM PDT

Meek Mill wants Pennsylvania's Supreme Court to do some simple math ... which he believes should add up to his immediate release from prison.

Meek's attorneys filed docs Monday requesting he be released from prison on bail while he awaits a hearing to overturn his 2-4 year prison sentence. He points out the Philly D.A.'s Office has said it would not oppose his release on bail ... due to a wide-reaching police corruption case involving Meek's arresting officer, Reginald Graham.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Meek says his initial conviction was based on Graham's perjured testimony. Team Meek lays out the laundry list of allegations against Graham, including performing poorly on a polygraph test (not related to Meek) ... and stealing money from a crime scene.

The other part of the equation is Judge Brinkley, who Meek's team has called out for allegedly making inappropriate comments, including asking the rapper for a shout-out on a song he was doing with Nicki Minaj

Meek's new docs include the Philly's D.A. statement that it's likely his conviction would be overturned. Basically, he's asking the PA Supreme Court ... what more do ya need to spring me?

Rick Ross 1st Show Since Hospitalization ... 'Free Meek Mill'!

3/18/2018 9:07 PM PDT
Exclusive Video

Rick Ross returned to the stage for the first time this weekend since his hospitalization, and one of his main orders of business was shouting out his locked up label mate, Meek Mill

Da Boss performed early Sunday morning at The Light nightclub in Vegas in what appears to be the first show he's done since his heart-related health scare earlier this month.

We broke the story ... Ross was hospitalized in Florida after someone found him unresponsive at his home and "slobbing at the mouth." He was put on ECMO to facilitate respiratory and heart functions, and eventually got sent back home to recover.

Definitely looks like Rick is doing better -- he rapped through a few songs, drank from his double cup ... and, most importantly, led a chant demanding authorities #FreeMeekMill. The takeaway ... Renzel seems to be back to his old self, and he hasn't forgotten Meek.


A post shared by The Boss Rick Ross (@richforever) on

Oh, he also poured some champagne for some ladies in the front row. Wouldn't be a Rick Ross concert without that. Good to have you back, Rozay!

'Black Panther' Actor Got a Grand a Day To Play Young Killmonger

3/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT

"Black Panther" is a smashing success and producers probably always knew it would be ... because they paid good money to a kid hardly even in the movie.

10-year-old Seth Carr -- who plays the child version of Michael B. Jordan's character Killmonger in the movie -- got paid $1,000 a day on set ... according to his contract obtained by TMZ.

It is unclear how many days young Seth worked on the film, but his guaranteed paycheck was at least $7,654 ... plus any future residuals.

Not bad at all for the few minutes of screen time.

Along with Young Killmonger, Carr is known for his roles on the shows "Bosch" and "Knight Squad" ... and also played Young Holt on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." 

Jay-Z and Beyonce Our Daughter's a Baller at the Art Auction!!!

3/18/2018 7:08 AM PDT

Blue Ivy is only 6, but she's already wheeling and dealing with the best of them.  

Beyonce and Jay-Z took their daughter to the Wearable Art Gala Saturday night in L.A. Grandma Tina Knowles Lawson and her hubby Richard organized the event, which raised dough for a new, non-profit art and performance complex.

A piece of art clearly caught Blue Ivy's eye because she held up her little sign and threw down a $19k bid.  It's unclear if Blue Ivy was the highest bidder, but she sure acted determined and that's gotta count for something.  

Truth be told ... it looks like Jay wasn't into the piece so much, because he tried to gently put his daughter's hand down. Even if she scored the piece, we're guessing Jay and Bey could afford it.

Blue Ivy and her mom wore matching, futuristic gold dresses to the event.  

The Game Subtle Threats to Tekashi 69

3/18/2018 7:15 AM PDT

The Game's in a big beef with Tekashi69 ... warning 69 he better get humble quick ... or else.

The Beef started Friday when The Game called Tekashi69 a "Fake-ass Blood" during a European concert,  leading the crowd in a "F*** 6ix9ine" chant. 

Tekashi69 responded Saturday, taunting Game, saying,  "A kid with rainbow hair got the whole industry right now aggravated "

Game fired back ...
