Nicolas Cage Kimono Date With Me

6/28/2016 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0628_nicolas_cage_date_photos_launchNicolas Cage is back in the saddle again, taking a mystery woman out for sushi ... a few hours after announcing his marriage is ending.

Nic and his chick -- sporting a colorful kimono -- hit up celeb hotspot Asanebo in the Valley on Friday, making this a pretty high profile evening. There was some major PDA going on too, so we can assume Nic's serious ... about making out with her. Check out the gallery of their date.

As we reported, Nic and his wife of nearly 12 years, Alice Kim, have been separated since January ... although they just went public with it on Friday afternoon.

Saturday night he was in Las Vegas at Carrot Top's show, and his date appears to have been the same woman ... still rocking the kimono.

J.R. Smith Selling My Body Tatted Tees Making Huge $$

6/28/2016 9:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0628-jr-smith-tattoos-shirt-front-GETTY-FRESH_BREWED_TEES-01Tons of people want a body like J.R. Smith -- and now they can have it ... 'cause the NBA star is selling t-shirts of his tatted physique ... and making a TON of cash in the process. 

Smith's inked up physique dominated the Internet when he refused to put a shirt on following the NBA Finals -- and a Cleveland-based clothing company saw a huge chance to cash in on the topless attention.

We spoke with Tony Madalone of Fresh Brewed Tees who immediately commissioned replicas of Smith's upper body for shirts ... and he says they've already sold 1,000 units ($35 a pop) in less than 24 hours. 

What's interesting ... the company realized some of J.R.'s tats could be problematic because they're based off trademarked images ... such as Michael Jordan's "Jumpman" logo. 

0628-jr-smith-tattoos-shirt-back-SUB-GETTY-FRESH_BREWED_TEES-01

So, in an effort to skirt the issue ... FBT altered some of the tats. Some of the changes -- they removed the name "Jordan" from a #23 jersey and modified the "Jumpman" logo. 

By the way, Obama famously told Smith to put a shirt on after the victory ... wonder if this counts?

EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj could learn a few things from Rae Sremmurd ... when it comes to strip club turn ups.

Nicki and Meek hit up Ace of Diamonds in L.A., and while they looked like they were having fun ... they seemed more like mom and dad chaperoning a dance. 

The Rae Sremmurd guys, on the other hand, were lit! Check out the video ... Slim Jimmy had about 2 armfuls of cash -- about $15k we're told -- and spent it liberally on Malani Ca$h. She's the one on the pole in the video, and Jimmy's dating her.

BFs gotta represent.

Kylie Jenner, Blac Chyna, Kim K We're All One Big Happy Family

6/28/2016 6:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

They were once mortal enemies ... and now Kylie Jenner and Blac Chyna are joined at the hip, singing "I Don't F*** With You" at a Kardashian shindig.

Kylie, Chyna and Kim formed the girl group for Khloe's 32nd birthday party in Hollywood Monday night at Dave & Buster's.

As you know, Kylie's boyfriend, Tyga, is Chyna's baby daddy and the friction has been palpable, but apparently not any more.

Just as significant ... Kris Jenner was there, which means -- with Rob and Chyna's new show -- it's money making time.

Greenbacks are more potent than blood.

Chris Brown Publicist Says You Call Me 'Bitch' ... I Quit

6/28/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0628-chris-brown-tmzChris Brown went ballistic on a publicist, referring to her as a do-nothing "bitch," and the publicist fired back that she spent all of her time cleaning up his "s***t."

Chris had an angry exchange with PR guru Nicole Perna over magazine covers he wanted for his clothing line. The conversation started with Perna texting him, "Loooove all the black pyramid pieces ... awesome collection!"

A frustrated Brown did not receive the compliment well, saying, "I don't want you texting me compliments with no results." He went on to accuse Perna of doing nothing to secure Vogue, GQ or any other publications, telling her, "Get in the game."

0628-chris-brown-text-tmzAnd then the fireworks started. Perna lashed out, "Anna Wintour doesn't want to f*** with you. These editors don't want to f*** with you." She goes on, "The majority of my time is spent on damage control. I am constantly cleaning s*** up and having your back."

Brown fires back, "NICOLE, you texting me as if I will give a f*** if u dont work for me or not ... Do whatever makes u feel better. Me personally, I DONT GIVE A F***!!!"

Mike G, Chris' manager who just sued the singer for allegedly attacking him, was included in the string of texts. Chris then texted, "Mike, this bitch got all the balls in the world talking to me but can't talk to the editors or anyone for that matter when they release bulls*** in the press ... Send this bitch her termination."

And then, Perna texts Chris, "Chris, respect. You're in my prayers x."

Chris's final shot, "Bitch u in my nightmares."

Perna sent her resignation letter to Chris.

Calvin Harris Taylor Meeting Tom's Mom Is a Joke ... Just Ask MY Mom

6/28/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0627-calvin-harris-tom-hiddleston-taylor-swift-TMZ-GETTY-01Calvin Harris thinks it's "f****** laughable" that Taylor Swift has already met Tom Hiddleston's mother ... considering she NEVER met Calvin's parents during their 15-month relationship.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... Calvin wanted Taylor to meet his parents, who live in the U.K., but Taylor always told him it was too far away.

We're told Calvin was understandably "bewildered and astonished" when he heard about TayTom's visit to meet his mother, Diana ... in the freakin' U.K.!! Remember, Hiddleston's only been in the picture for a few weeks at this point.

0627_Taylor-with-Tom's-Mom_akm_gsi

What's the rush? One source says Calvin thinks Taylor's cozying up to Tom to lock down a Bond girl role ... IF he becomes the new James Bond, as rumored.

If it sounds like sour grapes, it's not -- we're told it's more comical to Calvin, who also feels like he dodged a bullet.

Exclusive Details

0627_solange_knowles_birthday_party_rental_launch_2Solange Knowles rang in the dirty thirties in a tiny town barely big enough for Beyonce and Jay Z.

Solange, along with 12 friends and family members, spent the weekend in itty-bitty San Patricio, New Mexico on a 2,200 acre ranch ... all for a very reasonable $2k.

Beyonce and Jay Z flew in for the night. The low-key shindig featured a pool party and New Orleans-style catering ... and, of course, Domino's pizza.

And to burn off the calories ... strutting around the White Sands National Monument.
