Kendall & Kylie Jenner Trap Queens for Ex-Duke Superstars

8/13/2015 3:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0813_kylie_and_kendall_jenner_getty-2Former Duke stars and NBA first rounders Jahlil Okafor and Tyus Jones are teaming up again -- this time to holla at Kendall and Kylie Jenner ... Fetty Wap style. 

Tyus and Jahlil -- like many NBA players, we suspect -- were hot on the sisters' tails Thursday ... using Twitter to reach out. 

Our pals at BSO pointed out the ballers' tweets -- using "Trap Queen" lyrics.


0813_jahil_tweet_twitterNot horribly creative on the ex-Dukies' parts, but we'll give 'em partial credit for effort, and for waiting until after Kylie's 18th birthday. So far, doesn't look like either Jenner sis has followed Tyus and Jahlil.

They shoulda gone with ... "Seen yo pretty ass soon as you came in that door."

0730-james-woods-tmz-01James Woods is suing a guy for something every celebrity has to deal with every day -- someone talking trash on Twitter ... and he's gunning for $10 million.

Woods is going after a guy who goes by the name of Abe List. Woods claims List trashed his good name several times -- with tweets calling him a "prick," "joke," "scum," "clown-boy" ... but crossed the line when he accused the star of being a "cocaine addict." 

It's worth noting ... List has a paltry 2,274 followers, but Woods claims his 238,932 could have seen the tweet as well. 

Woods claims his reputation was damaged to the tune of $10 mil. 

Kim Kardashian I Got a Great Idea for Twitter

7/25/2015 7:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


0725-kim-k-twitter-tmz-02Kim Kardashian had a brainstorm Friday night to help Twitter, and the co-founder sucked up to her almost instantly.

Kim tweeted, "I just emailed Twitter to see if they can add an edit feature so that when you misspell something u don't have to delete & repost.  Let's see ..." 

A half hour later, Twitter big wig Jack Dorsey responded like it was a cure for cancer ... "great idea! We're always looking at ways to make things faster and easier."

When you have followers, people will follow.

Taylor Swift Bows Down to Nicki Minaj

0723-swift-minaj-getty-twitter-01Taylor Swift blinked first ... giving Nicki Minaj a full-on apology in an attempt to squash their Twitter war. There's hope for world peace, after all.

Taylor tried to dismiss the whole mess, saying ... "I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke."

Swift took the high road, and seemed to accept Nicki's explanation that her initial Twitter rant about a VMAs snub was not an attack on Taylor ... although she never explained who she WAS targeting.

Anyway, Nicki thanked Taylor for the apology ... and now everyone can play nice.

First Meek and now Taylor? Nicki's not just queen of the Barbs. 

Katy Perry Taylor Swift Is a Hypocrite ... Re: Girl-On-Girl

0722-perry-swift-tmz-getty-twitter-01Katy Perry just weighed in on music's biggest bitch sesh -- calling Taylor Swift a full-on hypocrite for accusing Nicki Minaj of taking down a woman.  

Perry thinks it's hysterical Swift told Nicki ... "It's so unlike you to pit women against each other." The joke, to Katy ... is that Taylor went for her neck with "Bad Blood" -- and proceeded to make a ton of cash off the song that's all about throwing shade at Katy.  

Nicki took notice -- and favorited Katy's tweet.

Taylor might wanna call for backup. 


Mike Tyson I'm Not Afraid of Twitter People Always Told My Secrets

7/10/2015 9:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mike Tyson says he wouldn't have had to worry about being put on blast on Twitter back in his heyday -- because when it came to girls, "They told anyway, so it was just like Twitter."

Tyson was at LAX with his wife Lakiha when we asked if social media makes it harder for celebrities and pro athletes to keep their private lives private ... and Mike told us, for him it wouldn't have mattered. 

Check out the clip ... Tyson also responds to boxer James Toney -- who recently said he'd beat Iron Mike's ass if they get into the ring in a widely rumored comeback fight. 

"I'm 50-years-old," Tyson said ... "anybody can beat me now!"

Yeah, we highly doubt that. 

#TheDress Debate 2.0 What Color Is #TheShoe?!?!

7/9/2015 2:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If that damn blue & black OR white & gold dress debate didn't destroy all your friendships -- try this one out ... #TheShoe.

Just like that freakin' #TheDress -- there are 2 options: Pink or purple? The person who posted this included an answer key, sorta -- the nail polish colors.

Does the shoe match the the color on the left ... or the one on the right?

Supposedly the answer is ... left! Now, is that pink or purple? Commence tearing each other apart. 

Safaree Samuels My New Chick Is Hotter Than Nicki Minaj

7/9/2015 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0709-safaree-and-zashia-main-01Safaree Samuels found the perfect way to get over Nicki Minaj … super hot model, Zashia Santiago.

Nicki’s ex couldn't keep his hands off Zashia when he posed for a pic with his new buxom babe -- kinda easy to see why.

Safaree and Nicki have been warring with each other ever since their breakup. They've each recorded break up songs, but with Zashia in the picture ... we're thinking he'll be singing a much different tune.

Maybe it's just us, but Zashia looks like a Nicole Murphy-Amber Rose mashup -- and that's a good thing.

The 34-year-old singer recently popped up in a post from the official Empire writers Twitter account hanging with the screenwriters.

She’s joining a long list of guest stars jumping on the show – Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Alicia Keys and Marisa Tomei.

The new season starts September 23rd.


Iggy Azalea I Don't Have to Suck Britney's A**hole She's Why Our Song Bombed

6/29/2015 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Iggy Azalea has an excuse for everything ... and this time she's throwing stones at Britney Spears

The song "Pretty Girls" bombed hard, despite a highly publicized music video. Iggy now says it's because Britney didn't get off her ass and promote it. Here's how she put it: "Its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately im just featured."

Then Iggy goes in for the kill, saying, "My comment is factual, it applies to any song. I dont have to suck the womans a**hole 24/7 to be her friend, do i? bye girls." 

Here's the thing. Iggy never says what Britney was required to do. She also has to know ... doing promotional interviews isn't exactly Britney's strong suit ... as in she's a deer in headlights.

And the song got more promotion than most.

Waaaaa, waaaaa, waaaaaa.

Jimmy Fallon and his single working hand are looking for a little sympathy -- he just gave us a first look at the injury, and an explanation for what happened early Friday morning.

Jimmy's left hand is heavily bandaged and elevated in the pic he posted from his hospital bed. He says his ring got caught on the edge of a table when he tripped and fell at home -- and he damn near ripped a finger clean off his hand.

At least the 'Tonight Show' host can still count on his right hand for important things.

Like tweeting ... and other stuff.
