Kanye to Wiz You Let a Stripper Trap You ... And Her Name's Amber

1/27/2016 11:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0127-kanye-west-wiz-khalifa-TMZ_01update_graphic_red_bar12:00 PM PST -- Kanye just backed off a little, saying ... 

-- "What's sad is I love Wiz and I love all all my brothers and all people"

-- "I love the world bottom line and all I want is peace and positive energy"update_grey_gray_barKanye West has just gone on the attack against Wiz Khalifa, trashing his ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose, by scoffing at Wiz, for getting "trapped" by a "stripper."

The blow-up followed Kanye's decision to change the name of his album from "Swish" to "Waves." Wiz fired back that "Waves" is a hip-hop term for another rapper's style ... Max B, who's currently in prison.

Wiz felt Kanye was jacking Max B's style without giving him credit.

That's all it took ... Kanye went off in classic Kanye mode:

-- "First of all, you stole your whole s*** from Cudi."

-- "Your first single was corny as f***."

-- "You let a stripper trap you"

-- "I know you mad every time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years."

-- "I am your OG and I will be respected as such."

-- "Don't ever in your f****** life speak sideways about a n***a that's fighting for us. I do this for all of us."

-- "I showed you respect as a man when I met you. You wouldn't have a child if it wasn't for me." 

-- "You own waves???? I own your child!!!!"

-- "Don't even hint at mentioning me my family or my wife I am your OG"

-- "Thank you for the extra promotion #WAVES available February 11th" 

It goes on and on.  

What's interesting ... as we reported, the Kardashians are livid at Blac Chyna for allegedly luring Rob into her clutches. Amber is Chyna's best friend who, by the way, is getting close to Scott Disick.

Breaking News


Tebowmania may be dead and gone -- but Blake Shelton is still PISSED about it ... claiming Tim Tebow BELONGS in the NFL 'cause he's better than a bunch of the crappy QBs that are playing right now. 

By the way, Blake is dead serious about it ... and explained in a series of pro-Tebow tweets: 

"Just saw the 2011 playoff game with Steelers vs Broncos.. Can someone please give me a good reason Tim Tebo isn't playing in the NFL?!"

"I mean are you telling me that there's NOT a team that needs him out there? Look at the problems so many teams have at quarter back!!"

"My god he's won a playoff game!!!!!!!!! How many QBs in this league can even say that?!!"

When fans starting firing back with the old "he sucks" argument -- Blake defended his boy:

"But he's so much better than a lot of starters!!! You can't argue that!!!! Come on!!!"

For the record, Tebow hasn't officially retired from the sport -- but it was clear he wasn't confident about a comeback after being cut from the Eagles earlier this year. 

Maybe Shelton helps ignite another comeback????

Stay tuned ...

1/12/2016 6:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0111-ciara-national-anthem-gettyRussell Wilson is standing by his woman ... saying Ciara looked FLAWLESS while singing the national anthem at the Championship game Monday night ... despite criticism that she let too much hang out.

The drama began when former ESPN reporter Bonnie Bernstein tweeted about the singer's low plunging dress -- saying, "Dear Ciara. You're stunning. But this is a National Championship Game. Kids are watching. Cover up."

The tweet started a firestorm on social media -- with everyone from Hugh Douglas to La La Anthony supporting the singer ... and ultimately Wilson decided to throw in his two cents. 

"I see you baby!! Sounded amazing & looked flawless in every way! @Ciara" 

Some people accused Bonnie of criticizing Ciara because she's black -- Bernstein responded to that too. 

"Truly am amazed at how people take a tweet (that includes a compliment!) & wanna make it about  race. Seriously. Grow up. Watch the game."

So far, Ciara hasn't responded to Bernstein ... but did repost a pic of her singing ... saying, "Truly Grateful For This Moment, and To Be A Part Of A Special Night."

1/12/2016 7:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Farrah Abraham Nicki Minaj Corrupts Little Girls

1/11/2016 8:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Farrah Abraham has laid down the law with her daughter ... they now live in a Nicki Minaj-free zone.

Farrah tells us her 6-year-old daughter Sophia is no longer allowed to listen to or watch Nicki's videos because "they already have little girls asking for butt injections and wanting to color their hair crazy."

Farrah says Minaj took things too far when she insulted her publicly on Twitter -- calling her a c*** and a bitch -- and believes Nicki is being super disrespectful to single parents who are doing their best.

Farrah's parting shot at Nicki ... "She's dead to me ... that mess."

Actually there's one more jab... Farrah says Nicki needs to focus on her "rapist brother."

0108-john-boyega-MAIN-educational-getty-stock-images-GETTY-01Before he was Finn in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," John Boyega was just the suave dude repping the minority in a bunch of educational stock photos.

Boyega copped to taking the gig with Getty Images back in the day after someone shared them on his Twitter page. He says he used the money for a pair of Nike Air Force 1s and drama school ... so money well spent.

Everybody starts somewhere, kids.


Ungrateful Clay Aiken Trashes 'American Idol'

1/7/2016 6:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Clay Aiken went on an incredibly bitchy tirade Wednesday night, zeroing in on "American Idol," the show that made him famous and gave him opportunities.

The second place, second season contestant went on a Twitter rant, starting with a high school-like dis ... "Watching @americanidol for the first time in a decade," suggesting he's been too busy.

He goes on ... "Well .... now I know why the ratings are down."

It didn't stop there ... Aiken mused, "Oh good Lord ... those boring ass responses from the judges? Where is Simon when you need him. That guy need a hook to pull him off stage."

And then there's this ... "I've watched root canals more entertaining than these judges."

And he ends this way ... "When your favorite team that you've cheered for years happens to play a s****y game, you're absolutely allowed to be upset by it." Interesting he's cheered, because he started by saying he hasn't bothered to watch the show in 10 years.

Gratitude ... it's not for everyone.

NFL Vet Shaun Smith I'm No Gangsta!! Gun Tweet Wasn't a Threat

Exclusive Details

0105-shaun-smith-getty-twitterNFL vet Shaun Smith set off a firestorm when he tweeted a photo of his handgun along with what sounds like a thinly veiled threat to his haters, but he says everyone's got him wrong.

The ex-Bengals and Chiefs defensive lineman says he was going back and forth with fans on Twitter about KC's upcoming playoff game, when things got a little heated. He tells TMZ Sports, "Everyone was talking all this macho stuff."

Smith responded with the pic of his legally registered Glock and said, "Everyone is so tuff on the computer but none of y'all about this so shut up and stay off (sic) my line straight up." The tweet -- coming just hours after President Obama's emotional speech about gun control -- pissed off a lot of people.

0105-sub-shaun-smith-twitterBut Smith tells us, "I didn't threaten anybody. I'm not going out there to shoot anybody."

He added, "People think I'm out here trying to kill, but I have a wife and 3 daughters. I'm trying to feed hungry kids [through my foundation.]"

Smith says he only tweeted the pic because he happened to be on his way to a gun range when the Twitter war broke out. He says his message was really just that people talk too much smack on social media, when they're not really badasses.

He says, in hindsight, he understands why people took his tweet as a threat -- but thinks they were just hypersensitive after Obama's comments.

1/4/2016 12:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0103_future-ciara_tmz_twitter-2Future is blasting his baby mama Ciara saying she's a "bitch" with control problems and she's preventing him from seeing their 1-year-old son.

Future says he's been silent for a year and half but that's all going to change because he's run out of patience and just wants his kid.


DJ Khaled Can I Get a Side Order of Elevator With my Mansion Please?

1/3/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1228-dj-khaled-new-house-ZILLOW-01DJ Khaled just dropped a cool $3.8 mil on a waterfront mansion in Miami. 

Miami producer Khaled turned 40 this year, and what  better way to celebrate than to get yourself a 6,600 sq. ft. mansion with an ocean-facing pool and a 45-foot boat dock with a jet ski lift. 

But Mr. DJ, does it have an elevator? Why yes, yes it does. It also has 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and pretty much every breathtaking view of the water you could hope for.

Fresh off dropping an album in October and the opening of his 2nd Miami "FingaLicking" restaurant, Khaled is busy talking gratitude and never giving up on your dreams in his Tweets and Snapchats.  

By the looks of this house -- seems the DJ has got a direct line to something good.

Cops, Kardashians Alarmed Kylie Needs to Cool It With Social Media

12/30/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Police are warning Kylie Jenner to pull the reins in when it comes to posting pics on social media, because stalkers and others up to no good are using it as a road map to her doorstep.

Cops are especially concerned because one obsessed fan has tried to make his way into her home at least 10 times. He's under a psych hold now, but he'll be released soon, and police want Kylie to immediately get a restraining order.

But they're even more concerned that her social media posts show she's rich with expensive jewelry, fancy cars and other trappings of wealth. It's an invitation for burglars and home invasion robbers to make their way to her home.

What's more ... we're told Kris and other members of her family are on board, and very concerned Kylie is overdoing it and giving too much information about her surroundings away on social media.

What we don't know ... if Kylie will put her safety above social media. 


Russell Crowe Flies Off Handle at Virgin Over Hoverboards

12/29/2015 7:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1229-russell-crow-virgin-tmz-gettyRussell Crowe is an accomplished actor who is oblivious to one of the biggest safety stories circulating over the last week ... and apparently that's why he blasted Virgin Australia for putting the kibosh on his hoverboard holiday.

Russell was trying to board a Virgin jet with his kids when he was told hoverboards were banned. He seemed to get pissed off, tweeting, "Goodbye Virgin. Never again."

Virgin ... owned by Richard Branson, as big a celeb as Russell, fired back through his employees that it is well-documented in confirmation and check-in information that the boards are banned.

In case you didn't know ... there's a huge problem with lithium ion batteries which trigger fires that can bring down an airliner.

Miranda Lambert Hey Gwen, You're Being Followed ... By Me

12/28/2015 9:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Maybe it's a mistake, or maybe it's intentional ... but Gwen Stefani has a new Twitter follower -- Miranda Lambert.

Maybe old feelings die hard, but Gwen's been tweeting a lot about Blake Shelton and places they go, and it seems Miranda's interested. 

The twitter web is tangled for sure ... Gwen still follows Gavin Rossdale, Gavin follows Gwen, Miranda still follows Blake, and Blake follows Miranda.

Social media divorce is way harder than regular.
