Pharrell Williams Jay Didn't Give Me Shiner I Got Spatula'd!!!

11/20/2015 10:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Pharrell Williams did not get a black eye from a fight with Jay Z ... at least that's what sources close to Pharrell say. He insists his injury resulted from a flying spatula. 

Reports began surfacing about a physical fight between Jay and Pharrell, because the singer backed out of a Tidal deal, but one source flatly calls BS on the story.   

Pharrell is telling friends and associates he and his wife Helen were "joking around in the kitchen" and a spatula "flipped up and hit him in the eye."

Take that Jimmy Fallon

breaking news

1120-lil-wayne-jimmy-winfrey-TMZ-01The guy who shot up Lil Wayne's tour bus just got nailed by a judge ... and sentenced to 20 years.

Jimmy Carlton Winfrey pled guilty to 6 of the 27 counts in connection with the tour bus ambush outside Atlanta last April.

According to a rep for the D.A., the 6 charges are all gang-related.

11/20/2015 9:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Kylie Jenner and Tyga have broken up, and it was sudden and nasty ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the couple tell us they split Thursday, just after Kylie returned from Australia. One source says, "It's something Tyga did," but the source would not be specific.

Sources connected with Tyga say Kylie's the one who pulled the plug and it had something to do with "pressure from the Kardashians."

Kendall was out Thursday night at dinner and we're told she was upset and had harsh words about Tyga.


Russell Simmons Kimora Is the Best ... At Sex Ed!

11/20/2015 10:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Russell Simmons would give his ex-wife a PhD in Sex education ... after watching her lay into their daughters about the dangers of "popping the coochie."

Russell flew into LAX a few hours after one of his daughters posted video of Kimora Lee Simmons having "the talk." Sure, it was a direct, and maybe even a little crude.

But Russell told us he LOVED his ex-wife's technique, and lauded her with even more compliments.

Just a guess, but he's probably just glad Mom had the "wrap it up" convo instead of him.

Exclusive Details


Tyra Banks has just quit her TV show "FABLife," saying she wants to focus on her cosmetic line, but TMZ sources say it was not a pretty parting of the ways.

The show has been struggling, and there was tension on the set. We're told Tyra and one of the executive producers did not get along. We're told she was particularly upset because she felt she had been double-crossed ... she claimed show honchos promised to push her cosmetics line much harder than they did.

We're told there was a staff meeting a week ago where execs said the show would be moving in a different direction. But Tyra had been missing days on the show, and the handwriting was on the wall.

Sean Kingston I've Been Kidnapped Over Jewelry Cops Investigating

11/20/2015 10:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1119-sean-kingston-tmzSean Kingston claims he was kidnapped by a jeweler in a dispute over a $225,000 watch ... and LAPD is now on the case.

Here's what Sean says ... he bought the watch from a jeweler and made payments to the tune of $185k, but didn't pay the balance because he felt the watch wasn't worth any more. The jeweler begged to differ and they had a number of arguments.

Sean told cops he and the jeweler met Tuesday at 1:50 AM at a downtown L.A. parking lot, to make a trade ... he'd give the watch back and the jeweler would give him a watch worth a solid $185k. Yes, it sounds weird.

Sean says he got in the back of the jeweler's car but instead of trading, the jeweler allegedly snatched Sean's watch away and refused to give him another watch. Sean says he went nuts, demanded the watch back and refused to get out of the car.  

Now for the jack move. Sean says the jeweler and his posse locked him in the car and drove away to a secluded area and threw him out of the car. Cops say if true, it's kidnapping.

We know it's a little confusing. Here's a road map ...

Rihanna 'Anti' PDA with Travis Scott

11/20/2015 9:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna and Travis Scott are rolling into the same venue but keeping an arm's length from one another ... at least for the public.

RiRi attended Travis' Brooklyn concert Thursday night but left by herself with Travis trailing not too far behind in his own car. No surprise ... we saw them a little later arriving at Up&Down nightclub. Again, just minutes apart.

They haven't been seen out much since their heavy makeout sesh at a Fashion Week after-party ... but looks like it's still on. 

Bonus for the RihannaNavy -- you gotta see RiRi school one of the photogs on the title of her new LP, "ANTI."


Patti LaBelle YouTube Guy's Lovely But I'm the Brains Behind My Sweet Potato Pie!

11/20/2015 8:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Patti LaBelle loves the YouTube guy who sang the praises of her sweet potato pies, but she says the frenzy over the delicious dessert is all her doing.

The famous diva whose pies have flown off the shelves at just about every Walmart in the US of A was not sharing credit as she showed up to the London hotel in a very rainy NYC. Patti loves James Wright, but she says the success is all hers.

BTW ... it's insane what's happening with the pies ... some are going for $100 on Craigslist. We called 30 Walmart stores and they said December is the earliest they'll be restocked.

1120-sharon-stone-basic-instinct-STARTRAKS-REXUSA-01Sharon Stone hasn't forgotten where she came from -- flashing her famous leggy pose from "Basic Instinct" again, but this time she updated it ... for the Internet. 

In a different century, in a similar dress (different color) ... Sharon struck the pose that made her famous during an AOL livestream interview. She was talking about her upcoming TV series, "Agent X."

It's been 23 years, but the 57-year-old obviously still knows how the best way to take command(o?) of an interrogation.

Well played, ma'am.


Punk Band Vanna Sued Guitar String Lodges in Fan's Nose

11/20/2015 6:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1120-vanna-band-FACEBOOK-01A fan of punk rock has a bonus for his friends ... he can blow his nose in the key of C. 

The fan isn't happy about it ... in fact, he's suing the band Vanna for musical assault. Eric Quiros was enjoying the punk band's performance at Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip back in 2013.  

Eric says without warning a guitar flew through the air and struck him smack in the face. According to the lawsuit, Eric's nose was broken in 5 places. He also suffered lacerations to his face and a guitar string apparently punctured his nose, with a portion lodging inside it.

Poor Eric had surgery to fix his schnoz and remove the cord. 

He's suing Vanna and the Whisky for unspecified damages.
