Frank Stallone When Sly Lost ... I Was Just an Italian Emotional Brother

3/2/2016 6:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Frank Stallone walked it back a mile Tuesday, when he explained his Twitter rant about brother Sly losing the Oscar was based on famiglia. 

Frank was in Bev Hills when we asked about his tweets on the heels of Sly losing the Best Supporting Actor Oscar to Mark Rylance.  

Come to think of it ... Frank does apologize, but just as quickly he throws shade at the Academy voters.  


Mobb Deep's Prodigy Record Label Will Pay 6 Figures ... IF He Tweets

3/1/2016 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0229_prodigy-tmzOne half of Mobb Deep and Universal Music have squashed their legal beef, but if Prodigy wants to get paid ... he's gonna have to jump on Twitter.

According to docs, the rapper and Universal's publishing arm reached a settlement -- he had sued for back royalties, accusing the label of skimming revenue from his solo work.

Under the settlement, Universal Music Publishing Group will fork over $153,751.21 to Prodigy's lawyers ... with one string attached. Prodigy must publicly declare the feud is over, with this specific tweet: "My dispute with UMPG was all a misunderstanding. Thankful that we resolved it quickly and happy to be continuing my long-standing relationship with UMPG."  

That's over 140 characters, so it'll be a two-parter -- but when you see it, know that Prodigy got paid.

2/26/2016 3:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kesha's singing for her supporters ... posting a new song to thank them for having her back during her legal war with Dr. Luke and Sony.

The song is pretty simple -- accompanied by just an acoustic guitar she sings, "Oh, I don't know what I would do without you ..."

Her attorney, Mark Geragos, posted the tune on Twitter.

Keshas' fans have protested outside court and Sony offices -- and of course Adele, Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift have very publicly shown support.


Sen. Marco Rubio Self Destructs Trying to Out-Trump Trump

Breaking News

Sen. Marco Rubio just got crushed under a wall of irony when he tried to deliver a Trump-esque shot at Donald Trump.

During a rally in Dallas, he started reading a Trump tweet calling Rubio a "choker." Watch, the Senator's trying to diss Trump for misspelling the word ... but accidentally spells it perfectly. It plays like Rubio doesn't know how to spell.

(Note: Trump really did misspell it, but corrected the tweet by the time Rubio read it).

There's more, but it all plays like a failed attempt to beat Trump at his own game. In other words ... the role of Meek Mill will now be played by Sen. Rubio.

Drake ... y'know what that means. Sorry.

Dr. Luke on Kesha I Did Not Have Sexual Relations With That Woman

Breaking News

0222-dr-luke-kesha-TMZ-GETTY-01Dr. Luke is blasting Kesha, her lawyer and maybe even Taylor Swift ... unleashing for the first time about Kesha's rape allegations.

Luke says, "I didn't rape Kesha and I have never had sex with her. Kesha and I were friends for many years and she was like my little sister." He also seems to be addressing celebs like Taylor publicly coming to Kesha's defense -- "I understand why people without all the information are speaking out. I can appreciate their compassion."

In a Twitter rant that went on for more than 30 minutes ... Luke also got personal with Kesha's attorney, saying ... "Mark Geragos represented Scott Peterson and Chris Brown. How can he pretend he cares about women's rights?"

Luke is reposting several web articles about the case ... including a TMZ post regarding Kesha's testimony in which she said Luke never drugged her and they never had an "intimate relationship."

Luke gloated a bit, pointing out the judge did NOT allow Kesha out of her contract during Friday's hearing. He added, "It's sad that she would turn a contract negotiation into something so horrendous and untrue."

Dr. Luke Judge Saw Right Through Kesha's Twitter 'Extortion'

2/22/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0221-dr-luke-kesha-GETTY-TMZ-02Kesha's a liar and an extortionist who got exposed by a judge who figured out what's up ... this according to Dr. Luke's lawyers.

As we reported, a NYC judge shut Kesha down Friday in her attempt to get out of her Sony contract, after leveling a panoply of charges against the famed record producer, including rape.

Luke's lawyers have some interesting words for Kesha. On one hand, they want her to know she's always been "free" ... free to record with Luke or any other Sony producer. The lawyers also say they've invested $11 mil in her career and are "committed to continuing to promote her work."

On the other hand, the lawyers blast Kesha for engaging in "trial by Twitter," engaging in an unsupported, "vicious smear campaign to ruin Luke's reputation."

The lawyers go on, claiming Kesha's "outright lies" were designed "to extort a contract renegotiation and money."

Good luck working together.

0219-jermaine-jackson-michael-jackson-donald-trump-TMZ-GETTY-01Donald Trump just got called out for claiming to be friends with Michael Jackson -- by MJ's brother, Jermaine.

Jermaine ripped Trump, saying ... "name-dropping Michael don't make you cool and won't win you votes. Especially when using botched facts."

It's a known fact Michael and Donald were friends, but Jermaine is taking issue with Trump claiming MJ lost his confidence because of "bad, bad, bad surgery."

Jermaine calls that a "BS" theory and tweeted, "Michael's confidence was affected by the pressures, injustice and vitriol of external circumstances. Period."

0218-kanye-west-philly-police-TWITTER-01Kanye West just scored a new job offer ... from the Philadelphia Police Department.

Philly's boys in blue are apparently concerned about Kanye's cash flow problems -- the whole $53 million thing -- and just shouted him out on Twitter: "We R hiring, @kanyewest! Starting salary of $47,920; u could be debt-free by the year 3122!"

This might be an offer he can refuse, but think about it -- add some Yeezys to that uniform!

Kanye West, Taylor Swift Each Accuses the Other You're a Liar

2/12/2016 6:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0211-kanye-taylor-tmz-01Kanye West and Taylor Swift are now at war over one of his new songs, in which he raps, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous."

Taylor came out swinging Thursday night, disputing our story that sources told us Kanye called her about the song and she thought the lyrics were funny and had no problem with him releasing the track.  

Tayor's rep says, "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.'"

But Kanye has just fired back, tweeting, "I called Taylor and had an hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings."

Kanye goes on, "Bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word n****." And, Kanye says, it was Taylor who actually inspired him with the lyric. He says, "She was having dinner with one of our friends who's name I will keep out of this and she told him, I can't be mad at Kanye because he made me famous!"

In a show of support, Taylor's younger brother, Austin, threw his Yeezys in the trash.

Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again.

Pauley Perrette Claims Second Attack By Homeless Man

2/10/2016 11:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

021016-pauley-perrette-tmz-02"NCIS" star Pauley Perrette claims she was attacked by another homeless guy ... this time in her car and narrowly escaped after getting all evangelical on the dude.

Perrette says she was stopped on a busy street in Hollywood when she gave a buck to a "pretty off homeless guy" asking for change.

Perrette says the guy then grabbed her wrist and stuck his head into her car demanding to know the time.  She says her immediate reaction was to yell "I rebuke you satan in the name of Jesus Christ!" And then she told him the time ... 5:37 PM.

Seems to have done the trick ... because the dude let go.

It gets weirder ... Perrette says she had a taser and tactical knife with her in the car too, but chose to go the good Samaritan route instead.

This is the second time in 3 months she says she's been attacked by a pedestrian ... so chances are next time the person won't be so lucky. 

Kanye West Get Off Cosby's Back ... He's NO Rapist!

Breaking News

0209-kanye-west-bill-cosby-TMZ-01Kanye West thinks Bill Cosby is getting railroaded ... if Kanye's Twitter feed can be trusted, that is.

Honestly, Kanye's been on one over the last few hours -- ranting about a bunch of things, but he just topped them all with ... "BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!"

It's unclear if 'Ye's been hacked, or if he's just getting stuff off his chest.

What is 100% clear is his album drops on Thursday -- which makes this the perfect time to get as much attention as possible.

We're sure Cosby is not complaining.


Abominable Snowman Spotted on Ski Vacay in Spain

You Gotta See This!

0209-yeti-ski-resort-TWITTER-02Move over Bigfoot and Chupacabra -- the Yeti's getting a little shine while skiing in the mountains of Spain ... allegedly.

The footage, which recently surfaced, shows a Yeti, aka abominable snowman, running through on a ski slope in the Pyrenees -- or at least that's what the skier who shot the images thinks.

Oddly, not everyone's buying that this is the real deal. Sure, it could just be some dude in a big furry snowsuit, but where's the fun in that? For the record, the ski resort says it sent out a search party but found nothing. 

Normally, the Yeti's associated with the Himalayas ... so maybe he's just wintering in Spain. Maybe.
