Cardi B & Offset On This #TBT ... I, Thee Wed

9/20/2018 3:33 PM PDT
Breaking News

Cardi B just gave us the first-ever look at her wedding day ... or night ... it's kind of hard to tell because it went down inside her bedroom.

TMZ broke the story ... Cardi and Offset got married on a whim the same day he proposed to her ... but there have been no photos of the secret ceremony. Cardi took care of that Thursday by posting a 1-year anniversary pic. Best #TBT of the day?

As we told you, the couple secretly tied the knot September 20, 2017 -- a good month before Offset proposed to Cardi onstage. The fake engagement effectively threw everyone off the scent ... until he started referring to Cardi as his wife in public, specifically at the BET Awards.

Once we did some digging, we found out they got a marriage certificate in Fulton County, GA the same day they got married.

One year later and they have their new baby Kulture, and fresh beef with Nicki Minaj.

Happy anniversary!

EXCLUSIVE

Waka Flocka Flame is throwing penalty flags at the NFL for choosing Maroon 5 for the halftime performance at this year's Super Bowl in Atlanta, because he believes the performers should be black.

Waka tells TMZ Sports ... he's upset with the NFL's decision to shun the incredibly long list of Atlanta rappers in favor of a more mainstream performer.  

Flocka tells us why Colin Kaepernick's movement could've influenced the halftime show  ... and says the NFL is just plain tone-deaf ... disrespecting so many players and fans. 

Waka gives us his picks for the halftime show ... and how to make the Super Bowl go hard in the paint.

EXCLUSIVE

Plies was arrested after a gun was found in his carry-on bag as he was trying to board a plane in Tampa ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us the rapper was getting a bag scanned Wednesday morning at Tampa International Airport before getting onto a Delta flight when TSA agents discovered a Glock 43 in one of his bags, as well as a fully-loaded magazine lying beside it.

We're told Plies had no permit for the gun, and was arrested by airport police for carrying a concealed weapon -- a felony. We're told he's currently in custody at Tampa International ... and will be transferred to Hillsborough County Jail.

Sources close to Plies tell TMZ he mistakenly grabbed the wrong bag before heading to the airport, and admits the gun is his. We're also told he is a registered gun owner. 

Snoop Dogg Message To Steelers ... Quit Playin' And Pay Le'Veon Bell!!

9/19/2018 8:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Snoop Dogg ain't panicking about the Steelers' rough start ... but he does have a message for his favorite winless squad -- STOP PLAYIN' AND PAY LE'VEON!!

Of course ... James Conner -- Bell's backup -- was hardly the reason the Steelers couldn't beat the Browns and were mopped by the Chiefs on Sunday.

But, clearly -- Snoop thinks Bell being on jet skis in Miami rather than being on the roster ain't helping matters.

"They need to pay Le'Veon and quit playin', man," Snoop says.

Still ... Snoop ain't ready to hit the eject button on the season yet -- telling TMZ Sports you'll know when that time comes 'cause there will be some classic rants up on his social media.

As for Antonio Brown -- who took to Twitter on Monday and said the team should trade him if they want to find out if he's a product of Ben Roethlisberger's success -- Snoop says A.B. ain't going anywhere.

"We just lost, so we're frustrated," Snoop tells us. "We'll be alright."

By the way ... Snoop also revealed to us which squad he rolls with in Madden -- and let's just say Pittsburgh fans ain't gonna like it.

Drake Sues Woman Who Allegedly Made False Pregnancy, Rape Claims ... And Tried Extorting Him

9/18/2018 5:46 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake has just filed a shocking lawsuit against a woman who claims he got her pregnant, saying she's hatched a baby scam and made false rape allegations against him.

Drake claims in the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, he met Layla Lace last year during his Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, England. He says after one of his concerts in February 2017, they hooked up at his hotel where he says they had consensual sex and "Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex..."

In the lawsuit, filed by celeb lawyer Larry Stein, Drake says Layla went ballistic when he sent her home rather than taking her on tour with him.  

The lawsuit contains a number of text messages Layla sent Drake in the following weeks, saying how much she missed him and so on. Drake says she created a "fantasy relationship" with him and, at a point, didn't have the "time or energy to respond" and he says that set her off.

In April 2017, she posted on Instagram and for the first time claimed she was pregnant, saying, "So I guess still in this era this is the new thing that after you tell a dude you pregnant they stop answering they phone!!!" According to the lawsuit, she then threatened to publicly leak messages from Drake. She made good on her threat and went on SiriusXM and announced Drake got her pregnant.

The suit goes on to allege in May 2017, Layla hired a lawyer and demanded money for her alleged baby and threatened him with defamation because TMZ posted a story saying Drake had never even met her.

The suit claims Layla refused to take a paternity test and Layla and her lawyer went radio silent. Drake says the whole thing was a scam ... "There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall."

According to the lawsuit, Layla switched tactics and went to authorities in New York and alleged Drake had raped her during their one-night stand. Drake says at that point Layla hired a new lawyer who demanded money or else they would make the rape complaint public.

According to the suit, the case was referred to Manchester police, who interviewed Drake and ultimately cleared him.

But, according to Drake ... it wasn't over. He says in the suit Layla then demanded millions of dollars in exchange for silence. 

Drake is suing her for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.

He's asking for unspecified damages. 

Young Thug Drug Case If There Are Snitches ... Prosecutors Need to Tell Me

9/19/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Young Thug thinks there might be a rat or two spilling the tea to cops in his Georgia drug case -- so he's asking a judge to order prosecutors to expose them.

YT's lawyers are demanding any and all info related to potential snitches who might've sold their client down the river in his drug case, where he was slapped with 8 felonies. If anyone cut a deal or got leniency in return for snitching on the rapper ... the lawyers want to know, and they want names.

Not only that ... Thug's lawyers also want info that will help them rip apart would-be canaries, including criminal records, personnel files and any other relevant dirt. 

We broke the story ... Young Thug was charged with possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone and weed. He's also charged with possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam, codeine (2 counts) and a firearm ... all stemming from his arrest last September when he got pulled over for tinted windows. 

It's not the only legal case YT's dealing with right now -- he's also facing a felony gun charge from a weapons bust in L.A. last month.

Kanye West I'm Moving to Chicago!!!

9/18/2018 10:10 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Kanye West is moving to Chicago ... but that doesn't mean he's abandoning L.A.

Kanye made the announcement Monday at a Windy City event with Chance the Rapper, saying, "I gotta let y'all know that I'm moving back to Chicago and I'm never leaving again."

We know a thing or two about the latest development, and it has nothing to do with Kanye fleeing Los Angeles, where he lives with Kim Kardashian West and their 3 kids.

Sources close to Kanye say he and Kim have already found a home in Chi-Town and that's where we know he wants to establish his permanent residence, but they are keeping all of their properties in L.A.

In addition to the house they just built, they have multiple properties in L.A., including 300 acres that Kanye is developing, and that project is still a go.

We're told Kanye will move his Yeezy offices from Calabasas to Chicago.

It's a little confusing, but we're told Kanye views it this way ... that he will have a home base in Chicago, but apparently he believes he can have more than one home base.

You'll recall ... Kanye launched Donda's House -- named after his mom -- in Chicago in 2013. It's a place for artists to develop their skills and collab with others. 

Le'Veon Bell Hosts Rap EP Release Party 'Make Some Noise If You're Drunk as F*ck!!'

9/18/2018 9:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Le'Veon Bell can still put on a show during his holdout ... taking the stage for his rap project release party ... and TMZ Sports has the video!!

The NFL superstar is staying busy during his time away from the Steelers ... hitting up Rockwell Nightclub in South Beach to celebrate his "My Side of Things" EP, right after getting in some jet ski cruising earlier in the day.

Not only does the whole club vibe out to his songs, Juice gave a live performance for the crowd (something NFL fans might not see for a while).

Bell -- who seems to be a frequent visitor at Rockwell -- even took a shot at his haters, dedicating his song, "Sayonara," to the people who have been talking about his contract situation.

Safe to assume Bell put on a hell of a show ... the dude even got props from singer/rapper Tory Lanez, who showed Bell some love.

Still can't be fun for Steelers fans to see.

G-Rod to Machine Gun Kelly I'm Already Training ... Keep the Cash, Give Me a Fight!!!

9/17/2018 2:43 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gabriel "G-Rod" Rodriguez, the actor who stepped in the middle of Machine Gun Kelly's beef with Eminem ... is absolutely dying to step into the Octagon for a one-on-one fight with MGK. 

G-Rod was already training in the gym Monday morning when he reiterated there's no need for lawyers to seek retribution for Kelly's crew beating the crap out of him ... he just wants to settle the score with his fists!

If you're not sold on Gabriel's fighting skills ... check out the video for a preview of his MMA moves. If you're in MGK's camp, think about hiring a trainer. 

G-Rod explains his reasons for confronting MGK Friday at an Atlanta restaurant ... and why Kelly's diss track pissed him off in the first place. 

G-Rod clearly knows his way around a punching bag ... and says he's even willing to drop weight classes to get on Kelly's level. So far, Kelly's not responding.


Webbie Shame on Me? Nah, Shame on My Kids!!! It's Open Door Policy Now

9/17/2018 1:43 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Webbie has no regrets about publicly shaming his teenage sons on the Internet after catching them in bed with a girl -- and he says their punishment fits the crime.

The Louisiana MC was on "TMZ Live" Monday to explain what led up to his live streaming his harsh verbal spanking on his 2 sons, their guy friend and a girl. Webbie described the scene he walked in on around 4 AM -- all 4 teens in bed together.

Webbie says his kids' buddy tried booking it at one point and was ready to leave the girl behind. It appears he got all the kids back in the house though, and eventually got a hold of their parents.

He also tells us about the first wave of discipline he's rolled out for his boys -- and apparently, there's more to come. Like they said in 'Next Friday' ... no more locked doors!

No more doors at all, actually.

Machine Gun Kelly 'F**k Marshall Mathers' ... Eminem's Kill Shot 'Missed'

9/17/2018 7:57 AM PDT

Machine Gun Kelly thinks Eminem needs some target practice ... 'cause Em "missed" when he fired back at MGK in their escalating feud. 

MGK mocked Eminem onstage Sunday night, wearing a shirt with the logo from Marshall's extremely homophobic diss track, "Killshot."

Kelly made sure the crowd at the Amway Center in Orlando knew exactly how he feels about Eminem, screaming "F**k Marshall Mathers" as he opened the set with his own song aimed at Em. 

MGK takes a shot at Em's age (he's 45), yelling, "The real Slim Shady can't stand up."

Apparently, Orlando is siding with Kelly ... 'cause the crowd goes nuts.

Smart move by MGK's tour manager ... there's no stop scheduled for Detroit.

An actor named G-Rod did Em's bidding Friday night. He called MGK a "p***y" for his shot at Em's daughter. Two hours later, Kelly's crew beat the crap out of G-Rod.

Get your popcorn ready. This beef just keeps getting juicier.    

Webbie Publicly Shames His Kids ... I Caught 'em in Bed with a Girl!!!

9/17/2018 7:37 AM PDT

Webbie isn't down for his teenage sons having sex under his roof, a fact his kids definitely know now -- if they didn't before -- because their dad fully shamed them on the Internet.

The Louisiana rapper says he busted his 2 kids, a male friend, and a female friend all in bed -- and then proceeded to conduct an interrogation live on his social media. Webbie repeatedly tells the kids, "You f**ked up!!" When one of the kids, not his, tried to leave he yelled, "Don't get to running. Don't run out this motherf*****!"

Webbie panned his camera around the room showing all the kids' faces -- we blurred them for this post.

He verbally dressed down the girl too, for being in the bed, saying ... "Girl, that's crazier than a motherf*****. You better stop."

It's unclear if Webbie ever got a hold of any of the parents.

The obvious question -- is he parent of the year or an angry dad who went too far?

Meek Mill Dropping Kaepernick Song 'They Lynch His Bank Account'

9/17/2018 6:40 AM PDT
Breaking News

Meek Mill has a song about Colin Kaepernick in the works -- saying the way the QB's been treated by the NFL is essentially a financial "lynching."

One of the lyrics -- "They won’t lynch him by hanging from a tree. They lynch his bank account." 

Meek gave a preview of the song to Page Six ... saying the song will appear on his upcoming album. Other lines include ... 

-- "They told Kaep to stand up if you want to play for a team, and most of his teammates said the same thing."

-- "Back in the ’30s you would be killed if you kneeled. They won’t kill you now, they just take you out of the deal."

A strong defense of his friend -- as we previously reported, Colin and Meek spoke over the phone while the rapper was locked up. 

In fact, while he was imprisoned, Meek joined Colin's philanthropic offensive -- each pledging $10,000 to Philadelphia's Youth Service Inc. 

Now that he's out, Meek is taking his support to the next level by doing what he does best -- rapping about it.
