Nick Cannon

Shaking Off Mimi

Three Asses at a Time

3/3/2015 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

You get a ride! YOU get a ride!! Everybody got a ride on Nick Cannon while he was partying in Jamaica ... and we got video of all the women who lined up to get a piece of him.  

Nick was at Susie's Cafe in Kingston last week when one woman backed it up on his crotch while he was dancing -- and that started the train rolling. Chick after chick after chick ... all getting up close with some Cannon crotch. 

You gotta see Nick in action ... pretty impressive.

All of this was for work ... sorta ... since Nick is in Jamrock scouting locations for a movie he's directing down there in April.

Ah ... who name Mariah, mon?

Steve Francis

VIOLENT CHAIN SNATCHING

At Houston Rap Show [Video]

3/3/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0303-stevie-launch-07NBA legend Steve Francis was the victim of a violent chain snatching at a rap show in Houston this weekend ... and TMZ Sports has footage of the brazen attack. 

The 38-year-old, 3-time NBA All-Star was onstage with the Sauce Twinz -- a Houston rap duo -- when someone crept up on the unsuspecting Francis and tried to rip his gold chain right off his neck. 

Problem is ... the chain didn't pop -- and Francis was dragged down to the floor where the culprit continued to yank on the necklace while the discombobulated NBA star tried to figure out what was going on. 

Sources tell us the guy ended up removing the chain from Francis and booked it. 

We're also told police were NOT called to the scene. 

As for the perp, no word on his ID -- or if he's connected to the Sauce Twinz. 

We reached out to Francis and the Twinz for comment -- so far, no word back.

Bobby Brown
's family is grieving over the dire circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina ... and we've learned they're also shooting a reality show.

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ ... Bobby's 2 sisters, brother and their kids are shooting the show about their lives, and part of it will chronicle Bobbi Kristina fighting for her life.

Bobby's lawyer tells TMZ his client will NOT appear on the show.

Bobby's sisters have a history. Leolah is the one who went on the record blaming Ray J for Whitney Houston's death, claiming he fatally fueled her cocaine habit.

Tina is the one who did a sit-down interview and claimed she did crack with Whitney. Tina and Shayne are also the ones who fought at a hotel near the hospital. She hit her son Shayne with a bottle. It's unclear if that will be on the show.

It appears that they have not shot video in the hospital, but we're told they have regular debriefs at home on camera where they talk about the tragedy.

... In New Rocky Flick

3/3/2015 6:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael B Jordan New Rocky MovieApparently, patriotic trunks run in the family -- 'cause Michael B. Jordan was sporting Apollo Creed's famous shorts when he stepped in the ring to play A.C.'s grandson in the new "Rocky" flick ... and TMZ Sports has the 1st pics.    

Jordan was going toe-to-toe with real-life pro boxer Tony Bellew -- who plays a boxer named "Pretty Ricky" in the upcoming movie. 

The pics were taken on February 26th ... just a few days before hell broke loose on the set -- with Sylvester Stallone jumping in the ring to break up a REAL BRAWL that went down between Bellew and an actor playing one of his corner men.  

Reps for the studio tell us the fight never got physical -- multiple witnesses tell us otherwise.  

As for Apollo Creed himself ... he died in "Rocky IV." 

Sucks for Carl Weathers.

Kim Kardashian

Nabs Huge Pianist

To Achieve Musical Dream

3/3/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0224_kim_kardashian_piano_tmz_compositeKim Kardashian hasn't tried to impress a pianist this much since ... well, ever ... because she's taking lessons from a classically trained musician -- and no, she's not only playing the black keys.

Kardashian family sources tell TMZ ... Kim recently reached out to classical pianist Oksana Kolesnikova after a recommendation from no less an authority than Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds.

We're told Kim's been laser focused on her lessons with Oksana -- who, by the way, might be the hottest piano teacher in L.A. ... not that it matters.

You might think Kanye West is her musical inspiration -- but we're told Kim's interest in piano goes back to watching her father play when she was a child. She also played violin in grade school, and plans to pick that up again ... since Kourtney just gave her one for Christmas. 

Kim could make her debut in May -- Oksana tells us she's invited her to perform at a recital where her students show off their skills. We're told Kim has a special song planned to surprise her family.

Kim Kardashian tickling ivories ... imagine that.

Kevin Hart & Ellen DeGeneres

Oscars' Past Meets Its Future ...

Possibly, We Hope

3/3/2015 6:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If there's one thing Kevin Hart knows ... it's how to build anticipation -- well, that and comedy -- and he fueled up the Oscars hosting hype train with his dinner date Monday night.

Kevin hit up Craig's with Ellen DeGeneres -- making us think he might be looking for tips on how to land the 2016 Oscars gig ... for which he's been rumored to be a candidate.

The buzz has been building since the second NPH wrapped up this year's debacle, and this video will certainly add to it.

Ellen didn't say much about the meeting, but all 5'4" of Kevin did play bodyguard for her as she walked to her car -- which is funny enough to see.

Larry King

I Want to Be the Next Host

of 'Fashion Police'

3/3/2015 5:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Khloe Kardashian and NeNe Leakes might be the favorites to fill the empty chair on "Fashion Police," but there is a new contender throwing his hat into the ring ... Larry King.

Yes, the octogenarian wants a shot at the gig and demonstrated his couture knowledge Monday night by critiquing the outfits of some younger people on his way into BOA.  

King doesn't seem to know things like the names of designers (he's baffled by Vans) or have any fashion sense of his own .... but he'd still make a helluva host!

DJ Khaled

All He Does Is Stiff

... Sued By Jeweler

3/3/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0227-dj-khaled-tmz-01
DJ Khaled was slapped with a lawsuit by a NY jeweler who says the rapper ordered a ton of bling, but refused to pay for a thing -- and is now more than $100,000 in the red.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Khaled got 2 Rolex watches, a custom made diamond chain, a pair of diamond earrings, and a 4 carat diamond ring from Rafaello & Company in 2012.

R&C says it had a written agreement with Khaled that gave him 15 days to check out any jewelry the company sent him. The deal was ... if he liked the goods, he would pay -- and if not, send 'em back.

But in the lawsuit, R&C says Khaled did neither -- keeping the watches, chain, earrings and ring ... and never paid a dime for them when he was billed. 

We reached out to Khaled's rep, and so far no word back -- but as his biggest hit says ... "Got money on my mind, I can't never get enough."

Disney Star

Sues Dad for Unger Games

He Blew My Cash On His GF

3/3/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0302-billy-unger-tmz-01The star of Disney's "Lab Rats" ... Billy Unger got fleeced by his own dad/manager, who used the cash to impress a chick ... according to a lawsuit filed by Billy.

In the docs ... Billy says his popager William Unger mishandled nearly $400K of his earnings last year. He also says his dad was gouging him for a 33.3% commission ... when the industry standard is between 10% and 20%.

Billy says his dad even siphoned away $120K to whisk away his GF on lavish vacations, and bankroll her living expenses. And it gets worse -- in the suit, Billy says his dad "despicably" took out a $1 million life insurance policy on him and made himself the sole beneficiary. 

Billy's asking a judge to order his dad to repay the missing money, plus damages.

For his part ... William Unger claims his son's accusations are "false and frivolous" -- and he blames the lawsuit on a "manipulative negative force in [Billy's] life whose sole focus is to administer pain." He added, "I love Billy with all my heart" ... and he wants to rebuild their relationship.

3/2/2015 6:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wiz Khalifa just turned up the heat in his custody war with Amber Roseby dropping a verse that takes several direct shots at her ... or at least it sounds that way.

Wiz laid down the rhymes for a track with Juicy J, called "For Everybody" -- and on the song there are more than a few hints that point toward Amber being the inspiration.

Just a few of the gems:

- "Man, I fell in love with a stripper, funny thing is I fell back out of love quicker."

- "Bottles be turning these girls into thots, Instagram turning these wives into hos."

- "You all 'bout that money, that s**t that I throw. Just make sure you clean off that pole." 

There are many more ... give it a listen.

And if Amber's ears aren't already burning, there's this: The track was posted with a photo of Wiz and Juicy ... from Wiz and Amber's wedding.

CeeLo Green

Emotional and Humble with Homeless Vets

3/2/2015 2:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0302-cee-lo-green-court-TMZ-01CeeLo Green is getting the equivalent of straight As in his efforts to complete his court-ordered community service -- in other words ... he's the anti-Lohan.  

CeeLo was sentenced to 3 years probation and 360 hours of community service following his no contest plea to furnishing ecstasy to a woman he was on a date with back in 2012 -- and TMZ just obtained his latest report from his probation officer.

He's completed 151 hours of community service, and 31 hours of individual drug and alcohol therapy. According to the therapist ... CeeLo sometimes gets emotional when discussing the work he's done with homeless veterans living on L.A.'s Skid Row.

CeeLo was in court Monday for a progress hearing, and since he's been doing so well ... he was informed he would not have to attend any future hearings.  

The therapist also says he shows "genuine humbleness" whenever she asks him about his work on a new album ... which does NOT count toward his community service hours.

That's not always clear to some celebs.
