Kanye West OK, He Will Break the Internet Claims Nude Celebs in Music Video are Real
6/24/2016 8:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West just blew the minds of thousands of people at The Forum in Inglewood, and he's about to blow yours with these images of naked people in the same bed ... and he insists it's the real deal.
Right out of the gate, we should say a rep for Donald Trump insists it's not him. But some of the images look eerily like the celebs.
Kanye premiered his music video for his song, "Famous" and the venue was packed to the gills.
The video is shot like a sex tape, with close up shots of various women, including a topless Caitlyn Jenner ... or at least that's who he said it was.
Could it really be George W. Bush? And what's the deal with Rihanna laying next to Chris Brown?
Mad props ... if we're even using that phrase as a thing these days.
Johnny Manziel's Dad My Son's a Druggie He Belongs in Jail
6/25/2016 7:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Manziel's father has thrown in the towel on saving his son ... saying if he doesn't get locked up soon ... he'll probably die.
Paul Manziel told ESPN, "He's a druggie. It's not a secret that he's a druggie."
Manziel's father realizes his son's wealth is driving his addiction, and says, "there are two things that are going to happen: He's either going to die, or he's going to figure out that he needs help. But we've done everything that we can do."
Paul has addressed his son's addiction in the past ... but after the former QB's attorney accidentally sent a text message to the media discussing drug habits ... Dad clearly had it.
As for what Paul thinks Johnny needs to get clean ... he says, "I hate to say it, but I hope he goes to jail. I mean, that would be the best place for him."

BET Awards Weekend LAPD On Alert for Sizzurp Sippin'
6/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The LAPD officers just got schooled on sizzurp, aka lean ... but the department swears there's nothing racial about it.
Law enforcement sources tell us LAPD brass has held meetings with cops to go over the basics when it comes to codeine. We're told they've been briefed on how users mix the syrup, how it looks, smells and most importantly ... to be on the lookout for double cups.
The brass insisted it has nothing to do with this weekend's BET Awards show ... which will draw scores of rappers. They say cops will not specially hunt for double cups ... but officers will arrest anyone if they happen to notice during normal patrol.
Interestingly ... one of the LAPD divisions where a meeting was held was near the BET venue in downtown L.A. But the Hollywood Division didn't have such a meeting, and that's where lots of the after-parties will go down. We're told Hollywood cops already know what's up.
After her Saturday concert, Mariah went clubbing in Las Vegas ... and wore an incredibly REVEALING outfit only she would try and pull off. Wait'll you see this!

Nick Lachey Plunks Down $4.15M For Jenni Rivera's Old Crib
6/25/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nick Lachey's all about Encino, man ... he dropped millions for a new crib just days after unloading a pad in the same neighborhood.
Lachey forked over $4.15 million for the 7 bedroom, 10 bath home that belonged to the late Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera. Nick and wife Vanessa will have plenty of room to spread out ... nearly 10,000 square feet on 4 acres.
Lucky for Nick, he had some cash on hand after selling his old crib for $3.995 million earlier this month.
Farrah Aldjufrie from The Agency sealed the deal for Nick. The agent for Jenny's estate was Sebastian Wolski, managing partner of the Ryan Serhant Team Los Angeles.
And how's this for a nice touch ... Nick and Vanessa wrote a letter to Rivera's family, thanking them for the home.
