'Empire' Star Malik Yoba

I Found the Guy Behind False Drug Rumors ...

He Better Apologize!!

3/26/2015 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Empire" star Malik Yoba is shooting down the rumors he was fired from the hit show because he was abusing drugs -- and he's getting an apology from the guy who spread the rumor in the first place.

Malik came on TMZ Live to set the record straight, telling us he spent money to find the blogger behind the false report -- which unfortunately spread like crazy on the Internet. He assured us he's never had any issues with substance abuse ... a claim he says anyone he's ever worked with would support.

In fact, Malik explained how "Empire" creator Lee Daniels had his back when the rumor started spreading.

As for the blogger ... Malik told us the guy promised to post a retraction -- which he did early Thursday afternoon.

Bravo

Brandi's Nipples Were an Accident!

3/26/2015 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Brandi Glanville's nipple was never supposed to make an appearance on the season finale of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ... so says the network.

Our production sources tell us their people QC'd the video and never saw areola ... they swear.  It's a little weird, since Kim Richards called it out earlier in the scene saying, "Before you go any further, your nipple is hanging out." 

Our sources say there were hours of footage for the scene, and it just ... well, you know, slipped by.

We're told Bravo is re-editing the scene for re-runs, and as you know, they run endlessly.  

One on level, Brandi could really make a stink about this, but we're guessing she loves it.

Rich Homie Quan Alleged Victim

Not So Fast 007 ...

I'm Suing!

3/26/2015 11:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0326-rich-homie-quan-security-guard-injuries-TMZ-02We hope Rich Homie Quan likes his lawsuits shaken and not stirred ... the security guard he allegedly beat unconscious in Miami is now dragging him to court.  

According to docs ... Christian Cajigas says he's been disfigured and left in intense physical pain and is suing for the attack that he says left him beaten to a bloody pulp outside LIV Nightclub in Miami Beach.

As TMZ previously reported ... last Saturday RHQ and his boys were allegedly turned away by Cajigas at the club, and that didn't sit well with James Quan-d who allegedly wailed on him before taking off on a speedboat like James Bond.

Cajigas and his attorney Eric Hertz -- the same guy who represented the woman Tim McGraw slapped -- are asking for an unspecified amount of cash ... but it definitely sounds like a lot.

That boat ride could end up pricey. 

Jennifer Lopez & Casper Smart

Back To Bangin' ...

Sealed With A Kiss

3/26/2015 9:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0326_casper_smart_jennifer_lopez_kissing_fameflynetNot that Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart have been fooling anyone -- but they're officially banging again ... and we're basing that on the fact they're finally swapping spit in public again.

Smart swung by "American Idol" Wednesday night to scoop up JLo and they kissed out in the open for everyone to see. They've been sprinkling clues for months -- slipping out of a GQ event together, partying at Big Sean's House of Blues gig ... and his dogs were at her house (which didn't end well).  

They broke up last April after 2 1/2 years, but what if it was all for show?

J.Lo's insisted they're just friends, but after so much smoke ... this has to be a 3-alarmer.

Truth is Amber's in good company -- even Beyonce's been busted multiple times altering pics.

It's never sunny in Westeros, but that doesn't mean the guys from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" can't pay a visit ... and the guys behind "Game of Thrones" want to make that happen. 

The unlikely alliance of shows began in 2013, when writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss penned an episode of "Sunny" called "Flowers for Charlie." And Wednesday night in New York City ... the guys said they are still trying to figure out a way to have Charlie Day and Rob McElhenney appear on their show.

We chatted with the "GoT" guys about a few different topics, so if you're a fan of the show ... there's bound to be something in there for you.

Zayn Malik

Yes, I Quit One Direction ...

But I Ain't Dead Yet!

3/26/2015 9:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0326_ZAYN_MALIK_HOME_Express_PicturesZayn Malik's face ... hours after he quit One Direction ... said exactly what millions of 1Ders were thinking -- "OMG, what the hell have I done?" 

Zayn was out in North London on Wednesday afternoon ... settling into retirement, at 22 years old.

While he reportedly cited "stress" as the reason he originally dropped out of the band's tour -- word is he was worried his lifestyle on the road was messing up his life with his fiancée. 

The band plans to continue without him and finish its tour before the next album comes out. 

Meanwhile, Zayn will be wondering if he's the next Timberlake ... or the next Kirkpatrick.

Karrueche Tran

If I Bump Into Chris' Baby Mama in L.A. ...

3/26/2015 7:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown's ex-girlfriend could be bumping into Chris Brown's baby mama real soon -- and Karrueche Tran wants us to believe she'd be totally cool with it.

We broke the news to Karrueche Wednesday night ... outside BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood ... that Chris wants to move Nia Guzman out to L.A. so he can be closer to baby Royalty.

L.A. is big, but not that big when you run in the same celeb circles -- so, what happens if KT runs into Nia at the club? Watch Karrueche's answer -- her mouth's saying one thing, but her body doesn't seem to agree.

Bonus: Karrueche's take on tell-all books (like Lil Wayne's) and whether she'll write one. Listen up, CB.

Brandi Glanville

Here's My Nipple ... BRAVO!

3/26/2015 6:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bravo is pushing the line for basic cable, because Brandi Glanville's nipple made air.

It happened on the season finale of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" Tuesday night. Brandi got into it with a few of the girls, and then Kim Richards crowed, "Before you go any further, your nipple is hanging out."

This clearly wasn't a mistake, since the show was edited and Kim's remark was right there for the editors.

Your move, HBO.

Justin Bieber

Bares His Soul

... to a Total Stranger

3/26/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber HikingJustin Bieber came to a mountaintop and then did something really bizarre this week on a hike.

The Biebs was roaming Runyon Canyon when he passed a hiker and his wife, who recognized him and said, "Hey Biebs, what's up?"

So began a 20-minute reflective conversation in which Bieber opined about life, L.A. and fame.

The hiker, Mike Maedke, tells us, as they sat on a bench looking down on the haze of Hollywood, Bieber said, "It's so chaotic down there."

Bieber then talked about how much he missed Canada, and then a random woman passed by with her dog. Bieber got down on his knees and played with the mutt.

The conversation continued, as if Bieber had no place to go and no one to talk to. But all good things must come to an end. Two girls came along and started screaming Bieber's name, so he gave Mike a fist bump and started walking away.

But there was one piece of unfinished business. Mike wanted a pic but wasn't conversant in the art form, so Biebs taught him how to take a selfie.

And that's a day in the park with Justin.
