Ralphie May

Screw Ludacris ...

Paul Walker Joke at Bieber Roast was Funny

3/28/2015 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ralphie May thinks non-comedians like Ludacris should leave comedy to the professionals, because Ralphie's indignant at Luda's indignation over that Paul Walker joke during the Justin Bieber roast.

Our photog got Ralphie at LAX Friday and he made no bones about it.  He thinks Luda's a "bad sport" for going ballistic when Jeff Ross cracked, "Move Bitch, get out of the way, is what Paul Walker should have told that tree."

You gotta hear Ralphie ... he does NOT mince words.  He thinks Comedy Central kisses the asses of stars and that's why they cut the Walker joke from the roast.

Justin Bieber

Sued for Allegedly Smacking Limo Driver

3/28/2015 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0328-justin-bieber-tmz-01Justin Bieber has been sued by a limo driver who claims Bieber smacked him in the head 6 times because the guy wouldn't crank up the volume on the radio ... but the driver has a problem, and its all about race.

Abdul Mohar wants $850K from the Biebs for the December, 2013 incident in Toronto ... according to the Toronto Star.  Bieber and his gang were in the back of the limo when the the driver claims he was repeatedly struck.

Bieber was criminally charged with the incident.  You may recall the insane scene when Bieber turned himself in.  Ultimately prosecutors dropped the case because they were pretty sure they couldn't get a conviction.

Here's Mr. Mohar's problem ... when he called 911 he reportedly told the dispatcher his assailant was black.   When cops arrived the driver changed his tune, saying the smacker "looked like a Justine Bieber kind of guy."

Advantage Biebs?

OT Genesis

I'm NOT in Love with the Popo

EXCLUSIVE

0328-ot-genasis-tmz-02OT Genesis got busted in L.A., but not for what you think.

The dude who has drug abusers and clean folk alike singing "I'm in Love with the Coco" was pulled over Wednesday night for blowing a red.  Cops ran his license and, voila ... 2 arrest warrants.

We're told the warrants were for traffic violations, so he was taken to the station and booked.

The good news ... OT seems to be making bank off his song.  He has Tahoe money, and a new one at that.

Justin Bieber

Feeling Crappy About Zayn

... Quitting 1D [TMZ TV]

Ok, so Justin Bieber was probably just playing it up for a bunch of his fans when he acted like he was all broken up about Zayn Malik breaking up with One Direction.

But JB's run-in with another fan really did lead to a discussion that is 100% genuinely repulsive. And yet, somehow ... funny too.

Rich Homie Quan

Dramatic Boat Escape

... Is a Lie!!!!!!

3/28/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0326_rich_homie_quan_gettyThere is no Santa Claus, aliens aren't real and Rich Homie Quan did NOT escape in a speedboat from the scene of an alleged assault ... so yeah, everything you've ever believed is pretty much a lie. 

RHQ is still a wanted man in Miami Beach, FL for allegedly decking a security guard who didn't let him into a club. According to the police report, Quan "fled east towards the dock where he boarded a boat in Dock 14 and took off." 

But people who were on the boat tell TMZ, that didn't happen. We're told RHQ did indeed board a yacht ... but that he partied there for at least an hour, in plain view, before taking off.

No arrests have been made, but the bodyguard isn't waiting around ... he's already filed a lawsuit against RHQ.

'Neighbors With Benefits'

Real Swingers Blast Show

We're Not All HOT!!

3/28/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Neighbors With Benefits" ... the new reality show about swinging couples ... blows the big one, at least according to a couple of high profile swingers on the Playboy payroll.

Michael and Holli, hosts of Playboy Radio's "Swing" ... say A&E's show takes their sensual lifestyle and makes it look like a weird sex cult -- plus it's loaded with false information about the community. 

On 'Neighbors,' which is set in Ohio, the couples flaunt their sexuality in bars and swap out in the open -- but Michael and Holli say that just ain't how it goes down. And what really pisses them off is the show's claim you have to be "hot" to partake.

The hosts insists peeps of all shapes, sizes and looks are welcome.

Just drop your keys in the bowl.

Karrine "Superhead" Steffans filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- admitting she perjured herself when she joined forces with Darius' baby mama in a child support war over their young son. Karrine claimed she saw her ex beat the boy with a spoon.  

But Karrine had a change of heart, and filed new legal docs saying she lied because she was "hurt and upset" over their divorce. Tell that to a judge in a perjury case.

Sometimes allies can shoot you in the foot.

The timing  is perfect -- they just celebrated 5 years of love. And the plot thickens, because Rosie's been sporting what looks like an engagement ring since December.

Mazel.

EXCLUSIVE

0327-a$ap-mob-GETTY-01A$AP Mob hurled themselves into a packed crowd in Hollywood and allowed concertgoers to do the same ... and a woman claims they left her in a world of hurt.

The group is being sued by a woman who attended their concert at the Fonda Theater in Hollywood back in 2013. Tammy Nguyen claims she was a VIP at the show when A$AP Mob took the stage at around 11PM. There was lots of crowd surfing during the evening, but it really intensified.

She says A$AP members, including Darold Ferguson, Jr. -- better known as A$AP Ferg -- were diving in the crowd, along with a bunch of fans. When Ferguson jumped, Nguyen says he nailed her.   And what's worse, she says she had to fight her way through the crowd to get out, and security didn't help.

She's suing the group and Ferguson.

Disarmed Alleged Bad Guy

EXCLUSIVE

0327-phoenix-jones-new-haven-police-TMZSPORTS_01Real-life superhero Phoenix Jones claims he's saved the day again ... this time, the MMA fighter says he chased down a stabbing suspect in Connecticut and DISARMED the perp. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... Jones -- real name Ben Fodor -- filled out a statement with the New Haven PD saying he was walking down the street Friday when, "I saw a man being chased who was bleeding from his face."

Fodor -- who made headlines as a real-life crime-fighter in Seattle -- says he put on his bulletproof vest and confronted a man he believed to be the "stabbing suspect."

Jones says the man then displayed a hunting knife ... so he proceeded to disarm the alleged bad guy. Once he believed the threat was neutralized, Jones says he went back and waited with the victim until medics arrived. 

The 26-year-old undefeated MMA fighter says he captured the entire incident on his go-pro camera ... and handed the footage over to police. 

Cops confirm a report was made -- but say they are still investigating the matter ... including Phoenix's role in the incident.  

Stay tuned ...
