Kim Kardashian Loses Kardashian and West on Twitter

1/3/2017 10:23 AM PST

0103-kim-kardashian-twitter-04

update_graphic_red_bar10:32 AM PT -- Now this is interesting ... Kim just restored "Kardashian West" to her Twitter name, around an hour after she began going just as "Kim." Unclear why she did and then undid it.

update_grey_gray_barSay goodbye to Kim Kardashian West and say hello to just Kim.

Kim just made her first real move on Twitter since her robbery back in early October, and she's lost 2 famous monikers ... Kardashian and West. She changed her twitter name to just plain "Kim."

It seems ominous on the surface, but when you look a little deeper it doesn't seem to have anything to do with her fam. She just a posted candid video of her, Kanye and the kids.

The word is ... she's trying to rebrand herself as a one-named celeb, like Oprah and Cher.  

Duly noted.

Chris Brown I'll Box Soulja Boy But First I Gotta Hook Up

1/3/2017 8:47 AM PST

Chris Brown wants to go toe-to-toe with Soulja Boy in a boxing ring, and it's all over a photo of Karrueche Tran.

Soulja says the beef all started when he liked a pic of Chris' ex, Karrueche, in a bikini. He says Chris hit him up, and threatened to whoop his ass.

0103-karrueche-bikini-picture-INSTAGRAm-01It all sounds like some high school crap, but Chris is actually doubling down now, and reaching out to Adrien Broner to set up a charity boxing match.

His rant is awesome because as pissed off as Chris is, his priority at the moment was hooking up ... but he was way more blunt about it.

For what it's worth -- Soulja's been liking KT's pics for a while now, but she told us ... it ain't happening. Feel better, Chris?

1229-dez-chris-tmz-2WIDE RECEIVER BEEF!!!!

Dez Bryant fired back at Cris Carter on Thursday ... after the NFL Hall of Famer blasted him on "Undisputed" ... but now Dez is now trying to de-escalate this situation. 

It started Thursday morning when Cris was VERY critical of Dez -- saying his performance over the weekend was not typical of a #1 receiver. At one point Cris said of the WRs who've been targeted 90 times this season, Dez is "the absolute worst."

Dez responded on Twitter saying, "Man you a puppet ... I'll see you around."

Minutes later he deleted the post and said, "I apologize it's not worth it."

Guessing we haven't heard the last of this ...

12/27/2016 11:17 AM PST
Exclusive Details

1227-randy-moss-getty-01Randy Moss is going scorched-earth on the mother of his children -- claiming he retired from the NFL early to take care of his kids while his ex dealt with a $4 million drug addiction ... a claim the woman's family adamantly denies. 

The ex-NFL superstar aired it all out on a Twitter rant Tuesday morning -- accusing the mother of his children of blowing $4 million on drugs ... and saying she's abandoned her kids. 

He added, "Retired because my kids needed me! im here for the REAL father's tht understand our position in life."

We reached out to the woman targeted in Moss' attack -- and spoke with her mother who tells us the drug allegations are simply untrue. She told us her daughter got help for an issue a few years ago but hasn't had problems since. 

She also said it's Moss who's blocking her daughter from seeing the kids. 

Moss ended his rant with a message for his ex -- "I love and kiss on my children everyday! Can u say the same?"

Ezekiel Elliott Donating to Salvation Army I Don't Need a Fine to Give!

Breaking News

12-19-ezekiel-elliot-salvation-army-gettyGood news for the Salvation Army ... Ezekiel Elliott says he WILL be donating to the charity despite the fact he won't be fined by the NFL. 

After EE jumped into a Salvation Army kettle to celebrate a TD Sunday night, he assumed he'd be fined by the NFL -- and vowed to match the fine and donate the money to the S.A. 

But Monday morning, the league announced they wouldn't take further action against the Dallas Cowboys star ... begging the question -- what's up with Zeke's donation pledge? 

Moments ago he answered ... "Even though I will not be fined I still will be making a donation to the @SalvationArmyUS."

No word on the amount -- we're guessing it'll be substantial. 

Good work, Zeke.  

Scott Baio Wife Says His Attacker is a Crazy Lady

12/16/2016 7:23 AM PST

1216-scott-bajo-snapchatNancy Mack -- the wife of Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and the woman who attacked Scott Baio -- is a crazy person which this pic clearly shows ... this according to Scott's wife.

Renee Baio is livid that her family is getting attacked on social media ... because she says the only villain is Nancy Mack, who berated Scott for his support of Trump at an elementary school function Saturday and then allegedly physically assaulted him.

One person called Renee "a white trash blonde" and another ... "oh no! the poor little baby boy got scared because a girl pointed a finger at him! You must feel so safe with such a macho man at home."

TMZ broke the story ... Scott filed a police report and cops are investigating the case as criminal battery.

Renee just tweeted, "I'm not sure why me, my husband or child is getting bashed. Scott & BB were the victims. I was a witness." She followed that up with a reference to the pic (above), saying "Does this look like a sane mother/lady 2 you?"

We know Renee videotaped part of Nancy's tirade and the pic is a screen grab from the video.

Todd Gurley Ready To Throw Hands With Fan ... After Twitter Threat

1216-todd-gurley-TMZ-01Here's a bit of advice ... if you come at Todd Gurley threatening to fight, you better be ready to scrap, 'cause the Rams star fired back at a frustrated fan saying he's ready whenever and wherever.

It's no secret ... Gurley hasn't had as productive of a season as fantasy owners would've hoped (he hasn't had a 100-yard rushing game all season).

So when one fan decided to go after Gurley on Twitter Thursday night saying, "if I ever see you in public we're fist fighting over your fantasy football performance this year" ... T.G. barked right back:

"Pull up then."

It's been a tough season for Gurley ... and the Rams lost to the Seahawks 24-3 on Thursday Night Football, so it seems like he's reaching his boiling point.

Hang in there, Todd.

Pitbull FL Paid Me $1 Mil To Take State Worldwide

12/15/2016 9:25 AM PST
Breaking News

1215-pitbull-tmz-03Pitbull went public with the contract he signed with Florida -- revealing the state paid him a ton of money to be its ambassador -- but he only did it after a politician pushed him into a corner.

Pitbull released details of the 2015 deal he struck with the Sunshine State. The bottom line is he got a cool million bucks for one full year of promoting the hell out of Florida by doing a televised New Year's Eve celebration ... which aired on FOX. His "Sexy Beaches" music video was also used as a promotional tool for Florida.

The contract even required him to be a travel agent of sorts, creating 6 different "Pit Packages" ... which were sweepstakes for travel packages to the state.

Florida state's Speaker of the House Richard Corcoran had filed a lawsuit asking a judge to allow Pitbull's deal to be made public. As we reported ... Pitbull's company had threatened to sue if representatives leaked the "trade secrets" in his contract.

Mr. Worldwide beat him to the punch and tweeted the document.

For his part, Rep. Corcoran gloated a bit ... saying he was only trying to protect taxpayers and "ensure transparency is the rule and not the exception in state government."

Donald Trump Love Ya Twitter, But You're Too Small for My Summit

Breaking News

1214-trump-twitter-cry-getty-01Donald Trump dissed Twitter -- the company that, arguably, played the biggest role in getting him into the White House.

Trump invited the heads of huge tech companies to Trump Tower for a summit Wednesday -- Tesla's Elon Musk, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg and Apple's Tim Cook were among the attendees. Even Uber's CEO was at the adult's table.

Twitter honchos were notably absent ... which struck a lot of people as odd since the Prez-elect is almost constantly giving the world his 140 characters-worth. A Trump aide told Business Insider Twitter just wasn't big enough to get the nod.

While Twitter's reportedly valued at about $13.85 billion, that's small change compared to the likes of Google, Apple and FB. Twitter's not said anything about the slight. Yet.
