Rob Kardashian says he's a fully grown man and doesn't need blogs to tell him he's fat.
Rob is scoffing at reports that he checked into fat camp and rehab to lose the lbs. He tweeted, "Then why am i still fat u fools??"
This photo of Rob leaving LAX for Kim's wedding in Paris Sunday triggered all the hubbub. He says, "I don't believe in rehab or therapy or anything of that sort."
As for losing the weight, he says, "I'm a grown man and will work on myself when i choose," adding, "I'm aware that I'm fat that def aint a surprise to me lol and my only therapy will be in the gym ..."
You got it, dumbbells?
It was a Photo
Not a Job Offer, Stupid!
5/17/2014 6:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Joel McHale does not picture himself as the new host of "The Late Late Show," although he does picture himself with the guy who will decide who gets the gig.
A big rumor flared up this week after Joel took a pic with CBS Prez Les Moonves and Julie Chen at the Up Fronts in NYC ... and Julie tweeted it.
We got Joel at LAX Friday and he made it clear -- sadly -- it was nothing more than a picture.
Moonves hasn't said he's ruling Joel out, but did point out he just wanted to meet the dude during a party in NYC and took the picture -- nothing more.
Here's the thing. Joel would be awesome as the host ... just sayin'.
BTW ... Moonves dissed smuggy Neil Patrick Harris, who said earlier this week he had been offered the "Late Late Show" gig but turned it down. Moonves told a reporter he had a very general conversation with Harris but never offered him the job. Humble brag backfire, Doogie.
Jay Z/Solange Fight
Solange 'Explanation' Tweet Is Fake!
5/13/2014 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Internet thinks it has solved the mystery of the Solange Knowles/Jay Z elevator fight, but TMZ has learned the tweet is a fraud.
Shortly after TMZ posted the insane video of Solange losing it -- a photo of a tweet emerged in which Solange accuses Jay Z of hitting Beyonce ... and the image was forwarded over and over again yesterday.
But the tweet in question was never really posted on Solange's Twitter feed, and never even existed -- IT'S A TOTAL FAKE. Solange's rep tells TMZ, "I can confirm that Solange did not tweet that; that is not a real tweet."
But as far as theories go ... it's worth noting that Solange has deleted all Instagram photos with Beyonce in them ... except for one.
The mystery lives on ...
PISSED OFF Over Columbus Short Re-casting Hoax
5/7/2014 3:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Scandal" EP Shonda Rhimes BLASTED Deadline Hollywood for putting up a fake story saying Columbus Short had been recast ... only minutes after the story went up. SHOTS FIRED!!!
Short -- who recently got the boot from the show and whose character appeared to be dead at the end of last season -- was to be replaced by some guy named Eric West ... according to Deadline.
But Rhimes shot down that report right quick, tweeting out, "I've never heard of Eric West. Harrison is not being recast EVER. How about reporters CHECK THEIR SOURCES before running with a story? Um, @Deadline? Handle yourself."
Even West -- who would have gone down in infamy with the likes of Dick Sargent, Sarah Chalke and countless others -- got in the act, tweeting simply, "This is news to me."
Deadline quickly updated its story, calling it an "elaborate hoax" -- but still wouldn't drop it, writing, "It is unclear yet whether Short would be replaced."
Sounds pretty clear to us.
Kissing a Girl on Twitter
... Cause Why Not?
5/7/2014 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ireland Baldwin and singer/rapper Angel Haze are getting pretty cozy on social media these days, and Ireland took it a step further this week by posting a photo of the pair kissing.
Ireland, who is 18, posted and captioned the pic, "happy cinco de mayo xx." Angel has publicly identified herself as pansexual, and has a Twitter feed filled with photos of Ireland -- there's a flirtatious vibe to many of them.
Baldwin recently broke up with Slater Trout who IDs himself on Twitter as a "professional stand up paddle surfer & racer."
Apparently that's an actual thing.
Mike Epps Beef Is Phony BALONEY
And Here's Proof [VIDEO]
5/7/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kevin Hart and Mike Epps' epic Twitter war has gotten nasty, personal, and sometimes hysterical -- but more than anything else ... it's FAKE, and TMZ's got the evidence straight from Kevin's mouth.
The shots started flying when Mike went on the radio last weekend and called Kevin the most overrated comedian out there.
Then things really got heated when Kevin fired back with a tweet that Mike needed help selling tickets to his shows, adding, "Why don't you do us all a favor and Kill your god damn self."
Brutal ... no doubt, but here's the problem -- Kevin and Mike went HAM like this last year, and when we grilled Kev about it (in March of 2013) ... he totally copped to it being a social media set up.
Sources close to Epps insist it's 100% genuine this time around, but after you watch the clip -- we're guessing you're siding with us.
Sues Over Tweet Deal Gone Wrong
5/1/2014 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Thanks to "Sister Sister" star Tia Mowry we now know why some celebs can't stop Tweeting -- because they can make a bloody fortune doing it ... but Mowry claims she got bamboozled out of her earnings by a double-dealing agent.
Tia filed a lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- which shows she made deals to send sponsored Tweets for certain companies ... deals that were supposed to have paid her more than $108,000!!
But according to the suit ... the agent she hired to handle her Twitter deals soaked her for far more than the 10% commission to which he was entitled -- and instead took more than HALF of the Tweet deal cash.
Mowry says she's been cheated out of nearly $60K. She's suing for that, plus another $120K in punitive damages.
Crashes Drake Bell's Album Release Party
How Ya Like Me Now?
4/18/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber finally responded to Drake Bell's incessant Twitter insults by crashing his album release party Thursday night and basically saying ... YOUR FANS LIKE ME BETTER.
Bell and Bieber have a long-standing beef of sorts ... really it's just Bell constantly insulting Bieber on Twitter, but the Biebs never responds ... until last night.
Bieber pulled up to Mixology at the Grove in Los Angeles last night where Bell's event was going down. He simply rolled down his window ... which caused the crowd to go BONKERS.
But Bieber didn't stop there -- he posted a video of the screaming fans to his Instagram account, but didn't even bother to mention Bell, saying, "So nice seeing my fans at the grove tonight."
THEN he posted a photo on Instagram (see below) of Bell looking down at Bieber's van mobbed by fans with the caption: "Why is @justinbieber sprinter van getting more attention than my album release party." Bieber eventually took it down.
Our sources say the evening ended when things got heated between a guy in Bieber's entourage, Milk Tyson, and Bell's dad.
As the old saying goes ... Biebs who laughs last, laughs best.
@justinbieber dude ! Thank you for coming to my party I didn't know you were down stairs sorry they didn't let you in!! Should have hmu!!— Drake Bell (@DrakeBell) April 18, 2014
Feud with Nickelodeon
Is All About Money
4/2/2014 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jennette McCurdy's beef with Nickelodeon is strictly about the almighty dollar ... and how she makes less than her "Sam & Cat" co-star Ariana Grande ... TMZ has learned.
McCurdy was a no-show at the Kids' Choice Awards over the weekend, and took to Twitter to air her grievances, writing, "I was put in an uncomfortable, compromising, unfair situation (many of you have guessed what it is) and I had to look out for me. I chose to not go because sticking up for what is right and what is fair is what my mom taught me is ALWAYS the most important thing."
McCurdy was quick to explain she was talking about Nickelodeon and NOT her racy photo scandal.
Our sources say the source of McCurdy's dissatisfaction is rooted in her paycheck. We're told the pint-sized star is pissed that Grande makes WAY MORE money than her and she's been trying to renegotiate her deal ... so far to no avail.
The show is one of the most popular on the network, but production has been halted and so far a second season has yet to be ordered.
We're told McCurdy doesn't have a problem with Grande personally ... just with Nickelodeon. For their part, a rep for the network says, "We have nothing but the utmost respect for Jennette and her talent."
Terrell Owens' Wife
Yes, Those Are My Nude Pics
... But Only T.O. Had Them
3/27/2014 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nude pics of Terrell Owens' estranged wife have popped up on the Internet ... and she's hinting that T.O. may be responsible for leaking them.
The photos of Rachel Snider hit Twitter today showing the ex-postal worker posing for bathroom selfies ... some topless, some bottomless ... and some that look like they're straight out of Hustler.
Gotta say ... some of 'em do make ya think T.O. should try to patch things up.
Snider confirmed the pics are definitely her, but adds they were taken for T.O. ... and intended for his eyes only.
Translation: she thinks he could be connected to the the Twitter handle sending out the pics.
Rachel says she's contacted Twitter HQ to report the user behind the x-rated tweets, but so far they're still up.
T.O.'s rep hasn't responded to our calls for comment.
2:40 PM PT -- Rachel's pics are down ... Twitter shut down the account.
Official Baylor Twitter
We 'Ran a Train' on Creighton
3/24/2014 6:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Baylor didn't just crush Creighton in the NCAA tourney this weekend -- they GANG BANGED the hell out of 'em ... at least according to the official Baylor Athletics twitter page.
Allow us to explain ... during the shalacking, Fox Sports Southwest analyst David Ubben tweeted, "Baylor's running a train on Creighton."
The Baylor Athletics page retweeted the post a short time later ... which is typically a sign of approval from the retweeter.
It didn't take long for Twitter peeps to educate Dubben on the meaning of the phrase "running a train" -- and he immediately posted, "Apparently I need to spend more time reading urban dictionary. My apologies on that last tweet. It's been deleted."
At the time of this post, the tweet was still on the Baylor Athletics site.

'Big Brother' Star Michele Ross
Kaiser Ignored My Pain
Placed Me On Psych Hold
3/18/2014 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Big Brother" season 11 star Dr. Michele Ross had a ROUGH weekend at the hospital ... she claims she got placed on a psychiatric hold after doctors ignored her desperate pleas for help.
Ross (who went by Michele Noonan on the show) tells TMZ ... she rushed herself to Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in L.A. Friday after suffering terrible pains related to her endometriosis (a uterus problem). Ross says doctors were about to discharge her without performing a laparoscopy to help diagnose the source of the pain when she told them, "I am in so much pain I want to die."
Well once doctors heard "want to die" ... Michele claims they treated it as a suicidal threat and immediately placed her on psychiatric hold. Ross claims she was locked in a room with security standing guard at the door ... until a psychiatrist came to evaluate her.
Ross says she was finally allowed to leave Saturday ... but not until hospital staff threw away the prescription pot brownies she had. And she says she never got the procedure she wanted.
She tells TMZ ... even though she's a neuroscientist, she gets treated like a crazy person because she has blue hair. Or as we like to call it ... Bynesism.
Ross tells us she's considering legal action. Calls to the hospital were not returned.
