Jason Derulo

Major Groupie Soap Opera ...

Shut Out of the Party!

8/27/2015 7:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Not everyone gets to party with Jason Derulo -- as one pissed off groupie found out the hard way when he rolled out of the club ... 5 deep with chicks.

This is painful and yet hysterical to watch unfold ... Jason and his crew rolled out of Argyle Nightclub in Hollywood with a flock of groupies ready to party on his custom Sprinter van.

As shirtless Jason settles into his seat, it looks like a good time would be had by all. Almost.

The left out chick did not take it well or quietly, but eventually her friends did text from the van -- which only pissed her off more! Check it out.

Chris Brown

Completed Head Tattoo ...

It's In the Stars!

8/27/2015 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-chris-brown-instagram-01Chris Brown's decided one ridiculously large tattoo on his cabeza isn't enough -- unveiling the sequel to his Greek/Roman goddess ink, but this time his inspiration seems more obvious. 

CB got a big ole bull inked right next to the Venus de Milo(ish?) chick he got the other day, and captioned his Instagram ... "I do what the f**k I want!"

We don't know if Chris is big on astrology, but he IS a Taurus ... so the bull makes as much sense as a head tatt possibly can.

At this point, even Mike Tyson is cringing.

Kim and Kanye

Win Big Settlement

Over Leaked Engagement Video

8/27/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are even richer today, after settling up with a YouTube founder over a video of their engagement he secretly shot and then leaked online.

TMZ has learned Chad Hurley, the YouTube dude who went on to found MixBit, has agreed to pay K&K $440,000. The couple sued Hurley, claiming he manipulated his way into AT&T Park in San Francisco back in 2013 to witness Kanye's proposal. He even signed a confidentiality agreement.

But Hurley secretly recorded the video and posted it on MixBit.

Kim and Kanye were furious, and their lawyer, Eric George, filed suit claiming Hurley was desperate to find a second act after 2 failed flops following his YouTube sale. 

We're told Hurley must pay the loot within the next few days, and then the lawsuit will be dismissed.

$400k is a fortune to most, but Hurley sold YouTube for $1.6 billion, so he's not hurting.

  

Jerry Seinfeld

No Lemonade Stand for You!

Cops Shut Down Kid's Biz

8/27/2015 8:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827-seinfeld-lemonade-stand-instagramIf Jerry Seinfeld thought the Soup Nazi was bad ... he must've loved the Lemonade Gestapo busting his son's roadside charity biz out on Strong Island. 

The stand was set up last week in an area of Seinfeld's hood where city code prevents any type of peddling. According to a local report, some neighbors complained about a traffic buildup, and the East Hampton Village PD swooped in to pull the plug.

The stand still managed to raise some cash for Baby Buggy ... Jessica Seinfeld's clothing charity for families in need. She posted a photo of Jerry, their son and his pals assuming the position. 

Straight Outta Hamptons.

Rita Ora

Star-Spangled Nipples

8/27/2015 7:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0827_rita_ora_sheer_show_launch2Rita Ora put her love for the good ole U.S. of A. on full display ... on her nipples. 

Ora fell 48 stars short of a true American flag salute after her Wednesday night show at the El Rey Theater in L.A. -- though we doubt she heard a single complaint about it.

Perhaps next time ... Rita can take a few pasty pointers from Miley Cyrus, who definitely wore them better last night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

They are a party in the U.S.A.

Taylor Swift, Lisa Kudrow

Smell Up Staples Center

8/27/2015 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor Swift was only 6 years old when Lisa Kudrow  made "Smelly Cat" a thing on "Friends" ... so maybe the reruns inspired her to bring Phoebe on stage Wednesday night for a reprise.

Swift closed out her Staples appearances with more stars jumping on stage, including Selena Gomez and Justin Timberlake.

She's leaving L.A. because she's run out of stars.

Derrick Rose

'Rape' Lawsuit Is ...

Just a Money Grab

8/27/2015 12:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826_derrick_rose_getty_2Derrick Rose and his attorney are coming out swinging against the ex-girlfriend who sued him for allegedly drugging and gang raping her -- saying she's repeatedly tried to squeeze him for money.

Lisa Cohen, a rep for Rose's legal team, tells TMZ Sports the lawsuit is "an attempt to shake down a highly respected and successful athlete." 

Cohen adds the plaintiff and the Chicago Bulls superstar were in a "non-exclusive, consensual sexual relationship for over two years" ... and there were never any complaints until lawyers started telling her to go after Rose for a payday. Cohen claims this is the third attorney the plaintiff hired to sue Rose.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the plaintiff -- going as Jane Doe in the suit -- claims Rose and 2 friends drugged her, then broke into her apartment and gang raped her while she was out of it. She says she waited 2 years to come forward because of embarrassment.

Cohen says, "We have complete confidence that the case will be dismissed and that Mr. Rose will be vindicated. This lawsuit is outrageous."

Common

Uncommonly Mature

Over Serena & Drake Romance

8/27/2015 6:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Common seems genuinely happy Serena Williams is back with Drake ... which is especially impressive given the history between the 2 rappers over the tennis superstar. 

We got Common leaving Ebaldi in Bev Hills Wednesday, and his well-wishes seem heartfelt.

You gotta watch the video ...  Common is the gold standard.

Spoil Nautical Birthday Celebrations for Everyone

Official Investigation Launched

8/27/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826-khloe-kardashian-don-knabe-getty-01

Khloe Kardashian's birthday fireworks for James Harden will almost certainly change the laws in L.A. over what people can do in the middle of the night on the high seas, and heads could roll.

L.A. County Supervisor Don Knabe -- one of the most powerful politicians in California -- tells us the midnight pyrotechnic show violated every noise ordinance in the books, and he's indignant the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. didn't shut it down.

Knabe is irate that the Sheriff and Fire Departments got a flurry of 911 calls from upset/scared/outraged residents yet did nothing, even though the Sheriff has "nice new boats" which could have reached the fireworks launch in seconds.

Khloe and company didn't need a permit for the 15-minute show, which stunned the Supervisor. He says the laws will be strengthened and any law enforcement agency that failed to react will be dealt with appropriately.

As we reported, there was a flurry of finger-pointing between the Coast Guard, Sheriff's Dept. and other agencies ... with no one taking responsibility.

Karlie Redd

I'm Choosing Playboy Over Porn

8/27/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826-swipe-karlie-redd-playboy-plus-01Karlie Redd is taking the high road when it comes to stripping for cameras, opting for Playboy instead of porn.

The ‘Love & Hip Hop: ATL’ star will be getting fully naked for Playboy Plus, the magazine’s NSFW sister site (act like you don’t know). 

Karlie thinks the Playboy route is classier than the Vivid route ...  the company offered her $25k for a sex tape, which she seriously considered but ultimately rejected. 

Playboy Plus says they'll shoot Karlie next month and the pics will go public this fall. They plan on putting Karlie in the celebrity section where she'll be right at home with Kim Kardashian and Madonna.

'Hawaii Five-0' Star Paige Hurd

I Want to Buy that Dog You're Walking!

8/27/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824_Paige-Hurd_puppy_tmz_wm2"Hawaii Five-0" star Paige Hurd wants what she wants when she wants it ... and that goes for random dogs she sees on the street.

Paige was walking near the Staples Center in L.A. Sunday when she saw a guy walking a 3-month-old female Bullmastiff.

She started fawning over the pooch and one thing led to another -- he said he had a whole litter at home --  and suddenly it became a transaction. Paige agreed to pay $700 on the spot for the pup.

Problem #1... she didn't have the money, so Paige ran to an ATM. Problem #2 ... she could only withdraw $500, so a family member fronted her the balance.

So Roxxie Redd -- formerly known as Barbie -- is now part of the Hurd.
