Chad Johnson

Drops $1,000

For Twitter Follower's B-Day Fund

3/24/2015 7:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0324_chad_ochocinco_TMZChad Johnson just proved he's the best Twitter pal in the history of the freakin' world ... 'cause the former Pro Bowler just forked over $1,000 to one of his followers ... so she could have a good b-day.

We spoke to Heather Torregano -- @DaRealNette on Twitter -- and she tells TMZ Sports this all started when she tweeted a link to a GoFundMe account she started to try to raise some money for b-day plans.

"I work as a waitress and a bartender, plus I pay out of my pocket to go to school. I was just trying to have a good birthday, I haven't had one in a long time."

She said she was as surprised as anyone when she checked the account and saw a PHAT $1,000 donation from Johnson who she says has been following her on Twitter for a couple of years.

Torregano says ... when she saw Johnson accounted for nearly HALF of her goal of $1,600 in one fell swoop, she was overcome with emotion.

"I cried, honestly. I was expecting people to give maybe like $20 or $50 ... but a full $1,000? There is no way I could have expected that."

Mo'ne Davis

Forgives Baseball Player Over Insult

Asks College to Reinstate Him

EXCLUSIVE

Mo'ne Davis continues to show why she's the most mature 13-year-old alive -- we've just learned she reached out to the president of Bloomsburg University and asked him to reinstate the baseball player who called her a bad name on Twitter. 

TMZ Sports spoke with a rep for Bloomsburg who tells us ... President David L. Soltz received an email from Davis and her coach in which they ask that Joey Casselberry's dismissal from the team be reconsidered.  

Casselberry was booted from the squad this weekend after he posted a tweet saying, "Disney is making a movie about Mo'ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That s*** got rocked by Nevada."

The team said Casselberry violated the athletic department's social media policy -- and possibly the school's code of conduct.

While Bloomsburg says they respect Davis' opinion and praise her for being incredibly mature about the situation -- the school will NOT reinstate the baseball player ... saying, "Right now we're standing firm."

For his part, Casselberry apologized for the tweet and says he's a huge Mo'ne Davis fan. 

After we broke the story, Mo'ne spoke with ESPN and explained her decision -- saying, "I know right now he's really hurt ... everyone deserves a second chance."

Miley's Fans Threaten:

We Will Kill You

Miley Cyrus
 may be pissed off at Patrick Schwarzenegger ... but she's gotta do something to shield him from the death threats he's receiving from her rabid fans.

Patrick's assurances he'd never cheat on his lady have fallen on deaf ears, because Miley's legions are sending thousands of hate tweets threatening to kill him and burn down his pizza shop.

One fan warned, "you better run for your life when you come to LA" and "I hope your pizza place burns down." Another wondered, "Who's gonna kill Patrick for us?"

Others threatened all-out war "... be ready for what's about to come," punctuating the threat with a knife and poo emojis.

Of course, he couldn't escape without an Arnold reference ... "You and your dad have a way of f***ing good s*** up."

Yikes.

Terrence Howard

Who's Iman Shumpert?!

3/13/2015 7:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If "Empire" really did rip off one of its characters from real-life NBA star Iman Shumpert -- you can't blame Terrence Howard ... 'cause Terrence says he's honestly never even heard of the guy. 

As we previously reported, Iman suggested that producers based the characters of Hakeem and Tiana after him and his GF Teyana Taylor ... and pointed to their hairstyles as evidence. 

0313-inman-shumpertBut if that's true ... it's definitely news to the star of the show, Terrence Howard ... who told us he doesn't know Iman and he doesn't watch basketball. 

That's ok ... Iman says he doesn't watch "Empire" either.

I QUIT 'FASHION POLICE'

It's Too Mean

Kathy Griffin has thrown in the towel, quitting "Fashion Police" because she thinks it's too mean-spirited.

Griffin just tweeted a treatise, saying, "I thought I could bring my brand of humor to Fashion Police so that beautiful people in beautiful dresses could be teased when appropriate." Griffin adds, "My brand of humor, while unrepentant and unafraid, is all about CONTEXT. There's plenty to make fun of in pop culture without bringing people's bodies into it."

Griffin was not specific on what changed her tune, but she did say, "I do not want to use my comedy to contribute to a culture of unattainable perfectionism and intolerance towards difference." 

She never mentioned the whole thing with Zendaya at the Oscars, but she did mention in her tweet being a champion of people of color. 

Kelly Osbourne, who recently departed from the show herself, tweeted her support of Kathy's decision, saying. "I could not be more proud of you @kathygriffin you have my love and support always!"

Lindsay Lohan is about to learn a life lesson ... nothing on the Internet is ever really gone ... because her attempt to delete the N-word from social media has failed miserably. 

Lohan went to see Kanye West perform Tuesday night as part of Paris Fashion Week. She posted a photo of Kanye onstage that included the caption, "#kanye&kimAlldaynigga$."

Lindsay deleted the corresponding tweet and edited the Instagram post to remove the N-word ... but her followers noticed and called her out on it, writing things like: 

-- "Why did you change what you wrote?"
-- "You said the N word?!? Wow I seen your original post and so did thousands others"
-- "She deleted N word so fast ..... Wow !!"

Scott Disick

Bails Last Minute on UK Clubs

... Via Twitter

0307-scott-disick-tmz-02

Scott Disick continues to piss people off all over the U.K. -- this time by bailing on two club appearances at the very last minute ... and the clubs only found out by checking Twitter.

Disick was supposed to appear at  Southampton's Switch night club and Bournemouth’s Cameo club, but instead jetted off to Paris to hang at Fashion Week with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner

Switch night club blasted him, saying ... "Scott Disick has let us know via his manager's Twitter at 9.30pm that he cannot come tonight due to 'unforeseen circumstances.' The real truth is he's gone to Paris to party and ignore his fans."

Switch continued, "These famous for nothing celebs have too much money and don't realise [sic] they are letting down venues, ruining peoples reputations and livelihood, and their fans." 

Disick has two more club appearances scheduled in the U.K. for Friday night -- and both clubs say Disick's people have assured them he'll be back from Paris in time.

Disick is already in hot water for his behavior at an appearance earlier this week. The organizers plan to sue him, claiming his poor attitude and general disinterest cost them a lot of money.

The company behind #TheDress has put the debate to bed -- it's blue and black -- and the hubbub has done wonders for its business ... thanks to the hashtag hysteria.

Dez Bryant

I've Been Betrayed

2/25/2015 12:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0225-dez-bryant-getty-01Dez Bryant says he's been betrayed ... but he's not saying by whom ... or how. 

In the wake of rumblings that a tape exists showing Bryant doing something terrible ... a tape everyone's talking about but no one says they've seen ... Bryant went to Twitter to express his frustration. 

"I need to get me a real raw uncut tv show or something ... I can't continue to get betrayed like this."

It's the second time Bryant has addressed the rumors.

Last week, he posted another cryptic statement that reads ... "Just quit with the b.s. … It’s clear as day what's going on… I might need to do a exclusive interview about my life these past 5 years since the world is destined to know."

"I use to let people take advantage of my life now that I’m no longer allowing that to happen it seems to be a problem… I’m not ashamed of none of my past incidents because that’s what made me who I am today."

0303_Zendaya_kelly_osbourne_giuliana-rancic-getty-tmzKelly Osbourne just dropped an ultimatum on Giuliana Rancic and their "Fashion Police" bosses -- issue a mea culpa for saying Zendaya smells like a hippie pot smoker ... or she'll quit the show.

Kelly is responding to the firestorm Giuliana sparked with a comment about the Disney star's Oscar look -- which included new dreadlocks. Rancic said she thought Zendaya must smell like patchouli oil or weed. Kathy Griffin joined in on the "weed" comment.

022415_zendaya_fashion_po_launchKelly went off on a Twitter rant, saying ... "I'm giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel." She added she doesn't condone racism and is seriously questioning staying on the show.

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."

0220-amber-rose-kanye-west-kim-kardashina-TMZ-01Amber Rose just answered Kayne West by zeroing in on the climactic scene in Kim Kardashian's sex tape, saying "Wait 30 Showers? But Kim let RayJnut on her .... Never Mind."

In case you're not up to date ... Kanye went on "The Breakfast Club" and said it was hard for him to move on to Kim after being with Amber, saying, "I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim."

Amber is not backing down. She's already called Kim a whore and Kanye is doing Kim's bidding.

0220_amber_rose_tweetAmber went on to say, "[A]fter all these years I never snitched on u and I don't plan on starting now. We once loved each other so I won't do u like that."

She concluded by saying, "I'll leave that up to the Kartrashians to humiliate u when they're done with u."

The only true surprising thing ... how come Ray J hasn't inserted himself?

Amber Rose and Khloe Kardashian can shut down their Twitter beef -- because Tyga is not sleeping with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner ... according to Tyga.  

Tyga hit up "The Breakfast Club" -- the same radio show where Amber blasted Kylie -- to clear up the rumors he's banging the youngest Jenner sis. He explained, "No, I'm not dating Kylie. I wanna be clear to everybody, I didn't leave my family to be with Kylie. That's ridiculous."  

Responding to a report someone called child services -- Tyga claims law enforcement has NOT reached out to him about the possibility he has committed statutory rape. He added ... although he hangs out with Kylie, Kendall is usually there too. Although ... we've seen them out alone on multiple occasions.

Tyga also talked about his feud with Drake, and took a stand on the Lil Wayne/Birdman war … claiming he hasn't received a single dollar in royalties from Cash Money.

More beef than a butcher shop.
