Terrell Owens I'm Over Marvin Harrison Drama

3/14/2016 8:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Looks like Terrell Owens is taking the high road in his beef with Marvin Harrison ... even though he's yet to get an apology.

Owens was arriving at Staples Center Sunday for the Clippers game -- and we asked if he thinks Harrison owes him a "my bad" for ripping Owens over this year's Hall of Fame voting results ... Harrison got in, T.O. didn't.

Check out the clip ... T.O.'s taking a more chill approach to this feud now.

They say it takes a bigger man. Terrell's 6'3" and Marvin's 6 foot even, so there ya go. Nice to see two men over 40 act like adults.

Selena Gomez Stuck In An Elevator In Paris

3/9/2016 7:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Selena Gomez got stuck in an elevator in Paris and sprung into survival mode without panicking ... which is another good reason to be stuck in an elevator with her.

Selena, who's in town for the tail end of Paris Fashion Week, posted a 19-second clip of the emergency. She can be heard telling everyone in the elevator that the talking will deplete them of oxygen ... while looking totally smoking hot!

The doors eventually were pried open ... by a dude inside the elevator with Selena. One of the better "Help, I'm Trapped In An Elevator!" episodes we've seen in a while.

Kim Kardashian Hey Bette Midler ... Take That Tree and Shove It!

3/8/2016 10:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0308-kim-bette-tmz-getty-01Bette Midler gifted Kim Kardashian with a tree years ago before turning Kim's Instagram nude into a punchline ... TMZ has learned. 

By now you know Kim took extreme exception to Bette's cyber-jab -- saying, "hey @BetteMidler I really didn't want to bring up how you sent me a gift awhile back trying to be a fake friend then come at me."

Now, we know ... that "gift" was a tree that Bette planted in Kim's honor as part of Bette's New York Restoration Project.

Bette dedicated one of the trees to Kim when she launched her MillionTreesNYC initiative in 2007 -- and even sent Kim a handwritten note. 

We're told Kim believed the gesture was a friendship branch ... until Bette mocked her on Twitter. 

As for Bette, she just fired back at Kim saying, "I never tried to fake friend you. Looks like anyone can take a selfie but not everyone can take a joke."

Kim Kardashian Naked Hatred For Fellow Celebs

3/8/2016 6:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0307-kim-k-instagram-01Kim Kardashian went on the counterattack Monday night after she was called on the carpet for posting a bangin' nude pic that turned out to be a year old.

Kim went in for the kill with Bette Midler, who tweeted earlier, "If Kim wants us to see a part of her we've never seen, she's gonna have to swallow the camera."

Kim's response ... "I really didn't want to bring up how you sent me a gift awhile back trying to be a fake friend then come at me #dejavu."

It didn't stop there. Chloe Moretz tweeted, "I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies."

Kim's response ... "Let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to Twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo."

And then there's Piers Morgan, who tweeted, "I know the old man's $50 million in debt, Kim -- but this is absurd. Want me to buy you some clothes?" 

Kim had some choice words for him, first, "Hey @piersmorgan never offer to buy a married woman clothes. thats on some ashley madison type s--." And get a load of her not-so-humble brag, "sorry I'm late to the party guys. I was busy cashing my 80 million video game check and transferring 53 million into our joint account." 

So no doubt ... the winners, Bette, Chloe and Piers. They got all up on Kim's twitter. 

0307-kim-k-instagram-02Kim posted this pic Monday night, and we're taking a wild guess but we think this one's also old.


Zoe Saldana Not Black Enough? Nina Simone Estate Lashes Out

3/3/2016 8:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0303-zoe-saldana-side-by-side-nina-GETTY-YOUTUBE-01The estate of legendary jazz and soul singer Nina Simone has no love for Zoe Saldana -- who's playing Nina in a biopic -- and sparked outrage over Zoe's skin color after the movie trailer debuted.

Nina's estate finally gave its two cents on Saldana getting the role, and it was not good. It's clear in the trailer that producers darkened Zoe's skin for the movie, "Nina" ... and that's pissing off fans, and clearly the estate too.

After Saldana simply tweeted a quote from Nina ... the estate fired back -- "please take Nina's name out of your mouth. For the rest of your life."


Simone fans have had equally harsh reactions to Saldana's casting. They're pissed about her prosthetic nose, and the darkened skin thing is really pissing people off because Nina stood for up for black empowerment and civil rights.

Critics think Viola Davis or Uzo Aduba would have been better picks. Saldana hasn't responded. The movie comes out next month.



Nate Diaz Are You High Right Now?

3/2/2016 3:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

This is actually pretty funny ... 

Nate Diaz was doing a Twitter Q&A with fans to promote UFC 196  -- when he was asked to name his 5 favorite rappers of all time. 

He could only get to 4 ... 

So, naturally ... the next fan asked if he was high on drugs.

Let's get him some Funyuns anyway ... 

Kanye West I'm No Music Pirate But I'm a Huge Troll

3/2/2016 10:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0302-kanye-west-tmz-01Kanye West is not jacking music and software off the Internet -- and the tweet he posted that suggests otherwise was all a setup to mess with haters.  

Yeezy came under fire Tuesday when he posted a pic of a desktop monitor with a song by Sufjan Stevens ... only problem was, the other browser tabs were filled with sites used for illegal downloading.

Our Kanye sources say the whole thing was trolling -- 'Ye was in the studio Tuesday and thought it'd be funny to send out the pic. He's well aware 'TLOP' has been pirated more than 500k times, and while he'd never steal music ... he knew the Internet would have a field day.

030216-sub-kanye-tweet-twitter-02More evidence of the trolling -- the monitor's a Samsung and it's well known Kanye's got a Mac laptop. Why would he illegally download programs on a computer that's not his?

He got what he wanted though ... the tweet pissed off not just random haters, but famous ones. Fellow Tidal artist Deadmau5 jumped all over Kanye for promoting piracy. West is laughing it off by cracking jokes about the DJ's mouse helmet. 

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.

Kesha Sings This One's for Adele, Taylor ... And All My Fans

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

2/26/2016 9:29 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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

2/22/2016 2:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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."
