Tour Dates Cancelled

EXCLUSIVE

Damon Wayans Cancels Tour
Damon Wayans is postponing multiple tour stops after suffering a medical emergency related to his diabetes ... TMZ has learned.

The comedian was supposed to perform Saturday in Missouri, but sources close to Wayans tell us he's unable to fly right now because of his ongoing battle with Type 2 diabetes. He was diagnosed back in 2013. 

The Kansas City Improv Theater says it got word Tuesday Damon wouldn't be able to perform -- and our sources say there are going to be more cancellations down the road. He's already dropped a six-show engagement in Buffalo next month.  

We're told Damon will attempt to do shows if they're close enough for him to drive from L.A. -- but until his health improves all out-of-state gigs are on hold.

Leonard Nimoy Hospitalized

Leonard Nimoy was rushed to the hospital after severe chest pains prompted a 911 call ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources say the legendary "Star Trek" star was transported to UCLA Medical Center last Thursday.

We're told paramedics weren't taking chances with Captain Spock and got him in front of a doctor ASAP. Nimoy's been in and out of hospitals multiple times in the last few months.

Nimoy announced he was suffering from COPD back in 2014, and even though he quit smoking more than 30 years ago ... he blames his illness on decades of lighting up.

We've reached out to Nimoy's rep for comment ... but no word back yet.

'Imitation Game' Screenwriter

'I'm Not Gay'

HOLY CRAP!

2/23/2015 10:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0223-graham-moore-getty-01

And you thought Michael Keaton not winning the Oscar was the biggest surprise ... the guy who won for Best Adapted Screenplay is not gay!

Graham Moore did an interview after the awards in which he said, "I'm not gay, but I've never talked publicly about depression before or any of that and that was so much of what the movie was about ..."

Fact is ... he never said in his acceptance speech he was gay, but everyone assumed it because the main character in the movie was gay and the torment he had to endure resulted in his suicide. 

Moore said at the Oscars he had some connection to Alan Turing because both of them had issues fitting in growing up. He told BuzzFeed, "It was one of the things that drew me to Alan Turing so much, I think we all feel like weirdos for different reasons."

Moore spoke to reporters backstage and did not broach the topic of his sexuality ... even though a reporter tried to ask him about it ... without actually asking him.

Joan Rivers

Oscar 'In Memoriam' Snub

Melissa Is VERY Disappointed

2/23/2015 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0223-joan-rivers-oscars-01

Can we talk? Joan Rivers was noticeably snubbed Sunday night by The Academy Awards and Melissa Rivers is not a happy camper about it.

Sources close to Melissa say she feels her mom deserved a place in the 'In Memoriam' portion of the Oscars, but she's not going to focus on the snub.

We're told she'd rather focus on the overwhelming support from her fans, who have rallied behind her mom since her death in September.

But Melissa has a legitimate beef -- seems like the Academy forgot how Joan owned Oscar red carpets for years ... and her hysterical role as Dot Matrix in "Spaceballs!"

8:25 AM PT -- Gordon just tweeted a screen grab of a text he sent Bobby saying, "Man to man I love your daughter ...  I don't know why you won't let me see her ... Your daughter is going to hate you when she wakes up.  It's not like you know her anyways.  What's her favorite color?  What's her favorite smell, movies, food.  You don't know. I forgive you she won't."

update_grey_gray_bar

Nick Gordon is refusing to talk to cops about the circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina ending up face down in a bathtub, and he's refusing to tell Bobby Brown as well.

Bobby Brown's lawyer, Chris Brown, says Gordon has refused to cooperate by coming clean with the events that led to the medical emergency and there's no reason to talk to him anymore about giving him a hospital visit.

Brown says, "It appears that Mr. Gordon did not want his understanding of the facts to be subject to the truthful examination of various experts or Bobby Brown himself."

Brown continues, "Mr. Gordon has every right to remain silent and not share his version of events with Bobby Brown," adding, "Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe."

TMZ broke the story ... Nick became the target of a criminal investigation after authorities noticed injuries to Bobbi Kristina's body when she was taken to the hospital.

Open the G** Damn Door, Kim!

Kim Kardashian pisses off Kris Jenner so much by not letting her in Kim and Kanye's new house, the matriarch throws a rock through her window ... according to the script for the upcoming reality show. 

Production sources tell TMZ ... there's a very detailed outline of scenes for season 10 of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." In one scene, after Kim and Kanye move into their new home, Kim goes back to Kris' home and takes a bunch of cookware and silverware.

When Kris realizes it, she storms over to Kim's house to confront her, and through a crack in the door Kris screams, "I gave you life and you stole my cookware!" Kim fires back that if Kris doesn't back off she'll have her removed from the premises. 

Kim slams the door and Kris goes crazy, picks up a rock and throws it at an upstairs window, shattering the glass as she screams, "You won't get rid of me this easily."

The best part ... it's so scripted North West cries on cue.

The 29-year-old gave Ronaldo the boot last month after rumors began circulating that he was bangin' other chicks ... so she's very single and by the looks of things, very ready to mingle. 

For the record, there were a ton of hot single dudes at the VF party -- including Orlando Bloom, Jared Leto and Common

Scarlett Johansson

Idina Expect Travolta ...

To Get So Touchy

2/23/2015 6:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0223-john-travolta-scarlett-gettyNobody felt as much at the Oscars as John Travolta -- just ask Scarlett Johansson ... who got up close with JT's hands even before Idina Menzel.

If you thought Travolta's overly touching moment on stage with Idina was strange -- and it definitely was -- imagine Scarlett's surprise on the red carpet.

John warmed up his hands pre-award show by sneaking up on Scarlett -- caressing her stomach and planting a kiss on her as she was posing for photogs.

You may question his tactics ... but the guy's got taste.

Oprah Winfrey took an awesome shortcut to press some flesh Sunday night ... much to the consternation of security. 

Oprah ducked under the velvet rope as a security dude gritted his teeth, in clear fear O might go down. It's unclear where she was going, but she was definitely in a hurry.

Fun pics ... more fun than the Oscars for sure.

Idina Menzel And Taye Diggs

We're So Rich ...

Divorce is Easy

2/23/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Taye Diggs Idina Menzel Divorce
Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have made it clear in their divorce settlement ... they're both so loaded they can live nicely on their own without bleeding the other dry. 

The settlement makes it clear ... each has accrued earnings and earning capacity that makes spousal support irrelevant. You don't see that much in divorces.  

Their parting of the ways seems completely amicable ... they agreed to share custody of their 5-year-old son, Walker.

Not amicable enough for you? They're also splitting all parenting costs right down the middle, so no child support either.

As previously reported, the couple has lived apart since 2013 but recently decided to pull the plug and end their 10 year marriage.

Kinda makes you want to get a divorce ... kinda.

Jay Z & Beyonce

Can't Find a House, So ...

We're L.A. Renters Now

2/23/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jay Z Beyonce LA HomeBeyonce and Jay Z can't always get what they want -- they've been unable to find the perfect L.A. home to buy ... so, instead they haggled their way into a rental for $150K a month ... and yes, that's a deal.

They're familiar with the crib in ritzy Holmby Hills -- it's the same one they rented last summer on a short term lease ... but our real estate sources tell us they just locked it down for a full year.

We're told the power couple's been itching to move out of the Bev Hills area hotel where they've been living while house hunting -- so they decided to go back to their old digs. 

16,000 sq. ft., 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and an infinity pool with a waterfall ... is one helluva plan B. 

You'll recall, Bey and Jay paid $200K/month for the pad last year -- but we're told they dealt directly with the owner this time and knocked off $50K/mo. ... based on signing a longer lease. 

Even the Carters love a discount.
