'Love and Hip Hop' Prince Black Twitter is Hurting LGBTQ Rappers

2/18/2018 7:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Christopher "Prince" Michael Harty from "Love and Hip Hop Miami" is going off on Black Twitter for going off on LGBTQ rappers.

We got Prince at Avalon Saturday in Hollywood and he doubled down on what he told Bleu Magazine recently ... that the intolerance toward gays in hip hop has got to stop.

He seems to have an even bigger issue ... he says Black Twitter just tries to tear down people and it's bad generally for the African American community. 

He thinks if there were such a thing as White Twitter it would be way more positive.  We're guessing that wouldn't be the case.

2/18/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Johnny Manziel says his bipolar disorder and depression got so bad at one point, he legitimately thought the world was coming to an end.

But, Johnny tells TMZ Sports he was able to pull his life back together ... and he wants people struggling with the same issues to know there's hope.

Manziel spoke to us about his mental health struggles on the heels of his bombshell "Good Morning America" interview -- saying he "felt like the end of the world was near and that I would never make it out."

FYI, Johnny told 'GMA' he was diagnosed as bipolar in 2017 ... after years of self-medicating with booze to cope with depression. 

Now, Manziel says he has a positive outlook on life as he tries to mount a pro football comeback

"To be where I'm at today and see hope and see a light ... I feel blessed to be able to have fought through the bad times," he told us at Delilah in L.A. -- where his GF, Bre Tiesi, was hosting an event.

And his message to others battling bipolar disorder/depression -- "As dark as it gets, eventually times will get better." 

Waka Flocka Flame Saves Selfie-Taking Fan From Being Hit By Car

2/18/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Waka Flocka Flame saved a fan from becoming roadkill by pulling her from oncoming traffic as she tried to snap a selfie with the rapper.

Waka Flocka was down in New Orleans this week for Mardi Gras when fans mobbed him on the way down to Bourbon Street. A female fan, wearing a black jacket, attempts to snap a pic with the rapper, but in a split second, a cab comes flying out of nowhere.

Waka Flocka, in yellow, pulls her from the road as onlookers shriek in fear. Craziest of all, it appears the fan barely lifted her head from her phone to see if she got the photo.

The cab did have a green light, so close call for sure!

Travis Barker No Lil Pump Face Tats for My Kid Until He Starts Hustling!!!

2/18/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Barker's pumping the breaks on his 14-year-old son ripping a page outta Lil Pump's playbook ... at least for now.

We got the Blink-182 drummer chillin' in Calabasas, and asked him about face tattoos and if he's down to let his kids get 'em. Apparently, Travis' son, Landon, asks him everyday if he can get one ... just like his buddy, Pump.

Travis tells us if Landon wants the ink, there's a price to pay.

Remember, Pump and Landon are tight -- the rapper performed at Landon's epic birthday party last year, and it sounds like there's a chance they could hook up to do music in the future.

But for now, at least, we're guessing Travis would rather have his son steer clear of Lil Pump's ways ... and his tats.

EXCLUSIVE

Olympic luger Chris Mazdzer's historic silver-medal finish didn't just come with one of those cute plush white tigers ... it came with a buttload of dirty messages, since his win also made him a big heartthrob.

Mazdzer became the first U.S. men’s singles luge medalist ever and says he can't keep up with the way his phone's been blowing up, mostly with congratulatory DMs ... but some want him to take it off.

The Olympic Village is known for being a Tinder-friendly international hook-up zone, and Chris says the layout makes it super convenient. 

BTW ... he's got a hot girlfriend. Sorry.

What happens when "Big Brother" legend Jessie Godderz runs into his favorite TMZ photog?

This time, the answer is DUCT TAPE HAIR WAX -- a punishment for not staying up on "Mr. Pec-Tacular" ... and the reality show that made him famous. 

Jessie flipped the script on our guy at LAX, serving up 3 questions in an impromptu pop quiz.

Our guy only got 1 ... and the former pro wrestler wasn't about to let him off the hook.

Silver lining -- this was the LEAST painful of their encounters ... which have included a submission beatdown and manhood-crushing wedgie.

Playboy Sued You Lied and Let My Nips Slip!!!

2/18/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Playboy had the nerve to publish a model's nude photo on its cover after promising a bunch of times it wouldn't ... so claims a former Playmate model in a new lawsuit.

The model, filing the suit as Jane Doe, says she always wanted to appear in Playboy, but resisted because she'd never do it nude. But that all changed, she says, after Playboy, in 2015, announced it would no longer publish nude pics.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the model claims the photog, shooting for Playboy Romania, repeatedly promised pics showing her nipples or other private parts would be digitally edited. She says she was appalled when her nipples were fully exposed for Playboy Romania's cover in May 2016.  

Just a note ... she wanted to remain anonymous which is why she filed as Jane Doe, but she puts in the lawsuit she's on the cover of Playboy Romania's May 2016 cover. Hmmmm.

We've reached out to Playboy ... so far, no word back.

Lionel Richie Sofia Dating Scott is 'Just a Phase' ... Right???

2/17/2018 6:28 PM PST

Lionel Richie doesn't sound like a dad who's ready to spring for a wedding for his daughter just yet ... at least not with her current BF

The legendary singer opened up about his 19-year-old daughter Sofia's relationship with 34-year-old Scott Disick, telling The Daily Telegraph she's at an age where she thinks she knows everything ... but he's not so sure.

Lionel says of the couple, "Is it going to be for life? I don’t know. But for right now it’s just a phase and I’m going to stand real still in the corner, get me a good drink and not make too much noise.”

Richie likens the situation to when he was Sofia's age, rocking an Afro and telling his father he was in love. He says his dad ignored it and let him figure it out, and adds ... "My daughter is getting me back for my Afro days!"

When we last checked in on Sofia and Scott, she was dancing for him in a skimpy Santa suit ... to Lionel's music.

So we can understand Dad's wishful thinking.

Holy crap, this one's juicy ...

Omarosa answers, but that's by no means the end of it. She says someone in The White House is sleeping around with everybody. Just a note ... the contestants need to get a lot better asking follow-up questions.

But wait, there's more. Brandi claims some of the women on "The Apprentice" got down with the boss. As for whether Omarosa did, well, she says she didn't have to. Her reason makes her so unlikable ... and so watchable.
