Screwing with Xzibit is not recommended -- 'cause the "Pimp My Ride" star chucked a STEEL CHAIR at another rapper's face ... allegedly over a cab ride!
X to the Z was backstage at a concert Wednesday night in Adelaide, Australia when he got into it with a concert promoter/rapper named Mastacraft.
According to reports ... Xzibit's ride from the airport wasn't up to his standards -- and after he got to his hotel, he was forced to hail a cab to the show when the promoter went M.I.A.
Just watch what the explosion once X got to the show and ran into Mastacraft backstage.
The promoter says Xzibit was treated like a king and any claim saying otherwise is BS, but still -- the video is crazy!

My Sex Life Sucks
4/24/2014 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Information Dean McDermott could have used before this photo was taken: Guys who are trying to save their marriages, after admitting cheating and telling the world their wives suck in bed ... should NOT be seen chatting up women in public.
Hours after Dean and Tori Spelling aired their dirty bedroom laundry on their reality show ... Dean hit up an L.A. coffee shop -- solo -- and shared a few laughs with a couple of ladies.
Sure, it could be totally innocent, but Dean's gonna have a hard time getting the benefit of the doubt after his couples therapy confession that he cheated ... BECAUSE sex with Tori "wasn't fantastic."
Home brewed coffee can be good too.

Marc Anthony is SCOFFING at his ex-wife for daring to claim he made $60 million over the last 4 years. Marc says she's way off ... he only made a hair over $40 mil.
Marc filed new legal docs in his ongoing custody war with former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, who claims she was forced to live in a crappy San Fernando Valley hovel with their 2 kids while he lives lavishly.
But Marc is putting things in perspective, laying out his finances in the docs -- obtained by TMZ. Marc says over the last 2 years he spends an average of $305K A MONTH.
It all adds up so fast. Marc says he's spent around $400,000 on domestic help over the last 2 years. We're guessing that doesn't include shelling out for JLo while she did "Maid in Manhattan."
And then there's $220k for auto leases, $1 million for a California home and another $700K for 2 New York residences.
Dayanara wants her monthly child support upped from $13K to $113K.
Give a poor guy a break.
Bitch Fight With Porsha
Hard to Watch
4/24/2014 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kenya Moore told our photog ... the epic "Real Housewives of Atlanta" brawl between Porsha Williams and herself was "disgusting" to watch on TV.
Kenya was tight-lipped on Porsha's glamorous mug shot -- taken after she was criminally charged with battery, but she did say she'd love to see her nemesis replaced with someone less violent.
It's also interesting how she responds to the $64K question ... whether she'll return to the show next season.
Bitch fights ... they're just awesome.
Clooney's Biz Partner
George Wasn't Drunk When He Blasted Wynn
4/24/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
George Clooney's biz partner insists the actor was NOT pounding shots before his nuclear blowout with casino mogul Steve Wynn -- and tells TMZ, "We weren't drunk."
As we reported, Clooney and Wynn (left) locked horns earlier this month at a fancy dinner in Vegas after Wynn called Obama an a-hole. Clooney shot back, calling Wynn the a-hole ... then stormed out.
Wynn claims things exploded because Clooney was slamming tequila -- but Rande Gerber, who was at the dinner -- insists, "No shots were had" ... and it was NOT a heated political debate.
Gerber says, "This wasn't about politics. It was about George standing up for a friend."
FYI, Clooney and Gerber (Cindy Crawford's husband) are partners in a tequila company called Casamigos. They were meeting with Wynn to discuss future business at Wynn's hotels, which already serves the brand.
Funny, we're told Wynn's hotels continue to stock Casamigos ... despite the blowout.

Joan Rivers is scoffing at the 2 women who were held hostage in a Cleveland, Ohio basement ... telling TMZ they shouldn't complain -- "They got to live rent free for more than a decade."
The women are pissed at Joan's comments on the "Today" show this week ... when she talked about her daughter's guest room, saying "Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space."
The women -- Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus -- came out swinging, saying they were shocked and disappointed at the "hurtful" comment.
Joan tells us she WON'T apologize, telling them to lighten up, adding, "One of them has a book deal. Neither are in a psych ward. They're ok. I bet you within 3 years one of them will be on Dancing with the Stars."
And Joan says, plenty of comedians have done schtick about tragic events like Hitler's terror and the sinking of the Titanic. Joan says, "The TV the guy gave them must not have had SNL."

Looking like the uncoolest person on the planet, Prince William did his best poor person impression Wednesday, hitting the "decks" for some "spinning" in Australia ... and Kate Middleton was obviously his only biggest fan.
Big Will and Kate are currently on a tour of New Zealand and Australia, and today's stop was the Northern Sound System in Adelaide, where William got some DJ lessons.
After dropping some "fat beats," William then pulled a Bieber, hitting up a nearby skate park for some "tagging." Or whatever the kids call it.

But Why Now?
4/23/2014 8:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian cannot get enough of herself ... hitting up a newsstand on Tuesday to buy up every issue of her Vogue magazine cover she could get her mitts on ... but why did she wait three weeks after the magazine hit shelves?
The video might answer the question ... as she and Kendall Jenner go rifling through the magazine racks, a camera crew (most likely from her reality show) is tracking their every move.
So maybe it was just a cool moment -- Kim celebrating a historic career achievement.
I Can Still Get Loose With 'All My N*****'
4/23/2014 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Someone needs to remind Roseanne Barr her ass is 61 years old ... 'cause last night she was shaking it like it belonged to Miley Cyrus.
The new slimmed down Roseanne jumped on stage at the Comedy Store on Sunset with comedian Red Grant -- and when the DJ dropped "30 Deep" by Chevy Woods ... RB got real loose.
By the way, some of the lyrics she's freaking to:
Jokers to the left and the right
See all my n*****
Same n***** that I started with
All my n*****
At least she didn't sing along.
Bad News for Justin, Soulja
Famous 'Sizzurp' Cough Syrup
Yanked from Market
4/23/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Widespread panic in the rap world -- the high-end cough syrup that's become the lean of choice for Justin Bieber, Soulja Boy, and MANY other rap figures has officially been taken off the market ... all because of its reputation as a widely abused drug.
A rep for Actavis -- famous for the highly-refined cough syrup -- tells TMZ, "Given [recent media attention], Actavis has made the bold and unprecedented decision to cease all production and sales of its Promethazine Codeine product."
As we reported, Bieber loves the stuff ... as does Soulja Boy, who regularly posts pictures of Actavis bottles on his Instagram.
The Actavis rep adds, "This attention has glamorized the unlawful and dangerous use of the product, which is contrary to its approved indication."
Before Actavis pulled the plug on the product, the street value of a pint bottle hovered around $800 -- but sources familiar with the market tell TMZ, rappers are now offering insane sums to buy up whatever's left. We're told one prominent rapper has already offered his dealer up to $100,000 to get whatever he can.
Hilariously, being the dumbass he is, Soulja Boy posted a photo of SIX bottles on Monday referencing the Actavis shortage -- "Soulja got the juice. They say the streets dry. I say you gotta be kiddin me. I serve everybody."
News flash to Soulja -- As far as Actavis is concerned, its game's over.

Katy Perry left children in tears at a recent birthday party where she dressed up like a clown, attacked some guy with a piñata stick, and staged a scary car accident ... all for a music video -- and TMZ has video from the scene.
The hidden camera gag was shot at Knollwood Country Club outside L.A. earlier this month for Katy's "Birthday" video -- Katy showed a little preview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night ... but her clip didn't include the crazy fallout.
Eye witnesses tell TMZ, Katy pranked a REAL 5-year-old's birthday party ... and most guests had no idea they were getting punk'd. Children were crying. One woman stormed away, visibly upset.
Check out the video ... at one point a little girl says, "Mommy, I want to leave."
We know the feeling, kid.
Latest Social Media Snafu
4/23/2014 5:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber has once again managed to offend people via social media ... this time posting a photo of himself visiting a controversial Japanese war shrine ... mistaking it for a place of prayer.
Bieber posted (and then quickly deleted) the photo of himself and a friend standing in front of the Yasukuni Shrine, with the caption "Thank you for your blessings."
Bieber removed the photo and tried to explain the snafu later, saying, "While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine. I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer. To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan."
The Yasukuni Shrine honors those Japanese who died during war ... including several imperial army who committed heinous war crimes. The shrine is a sensitive topic, particualry to the people in China and South Korea.
It was just a year ago Bieber made waves after visiting the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and signing the guest book, "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."

So riddle us this ... if it looks like Steven Spielberg, tokes like Steven Spielberg, and claims to BE Steven Spielberg puffin' away at the Cannabis Cup on 4/20 ... is it Steven Spielberg?
The annual celebration took place in Colorado and the guy who shot the video says Stoneyberg told everyone he WAS the famous director -- so potheads were hooking him up with free dabs.
And then there's this tidbit ... Spielberg's wife Kate Capshaw was at Coachella.
Sadly ... no midlife here. A rep tells us it's not S.S.
