Tupac's Birthday Keep Ya Head Up ... Would've Turned 47 Today

6/16/2018 10:57 AM PDT

It's Tupac Shakur's born day, and rather than dwell on the sad fact we lost him nearly 22 years ago ... we're gonna celebrate the good times he had.

Makaveli would be 47 now -- imagine that -- and would most likely be raising a glass with a lot of the people in this photo gallery. Check out Pac chilling with his closest friends ... including Treach, Bone, Thugs & Harmony and, for some reason, Carl Lewis.

Tons of California love on display here. Happy birthday, Tupac!

North West It's My 5th Bday!!! Fine, I'll Go to the Party

6/16/2018 9:06 AM PDT

North West is kicking and screaming into old(er) age ... just like the rest of us.

North didn't look thrilled about turning 5 on Friday -- not at first, anyway -- but Kanye and Kim Kardashian West carried on with her party in NYC. Dad carried her out to the car, and through what looked like a brief tantrum.

She eventually settled down -- in her super cute traditional Chinese dress -- as the fam and some friends hit up the Polo Bar for dinner, and more importantly ... killer birthday dessert from Sugar Factory!

Now, we know serving up cakes is nothing new for Kim -- she's been doing it for years -- but, the multi-layered one she sliced into for her daughter's party was spectacular ... complete with candy in the center! Just watch. (Diabetics might wanna look away)

Happy birthday, North! Where does the time go? Seriously.

Beyonce & Jay-Z Blue Ivy Shows Fans How It's Done ... This is the Roc, Baby!!!

6/16/2018 9:55 AM PDT

They came for Beyonce and Jay-Z, but the fans stayed for Blue Ivy Carter, who put on a clinic in the London crowd that would make Dad very proud.

Jay and Bey played to a packed London Stadium Friday night, and, of course, their 6-year-old daughter had great seats, where she became a very cute side act ... dancing along through the show.

Blue was spotted throwing up the roc while Jigga ran through a string of his hits. It's pretty obvious she's been watching some of his old music videos, 'cause she's got it down pat.

Consider it an early Father's Day gift, Jay!

Jeremy Meeks Paying His Ex 6 Figures ... Gets Custody, Moving Son to U.K.

6/16/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jeremy Meeks is gonna have his own modern family after striking a deal with his ex-wife that gives him primary custody of their 9-year-old son, and gives her a hefty sum of money ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources tell us the "hot felon" -- turned "still-hot ex-felon" -- and Melissa Meeks reached the agreement shortly after their divorce was finalized earlier this month. Under the terms, we're told, Jeremy gets primary physical custody of Jeremy Jr. and Melissa will get a check ... somewhere in the 6-figure range. 

As we reported, Jeremy and Melissa's original divorce deal had her getting primary physical custody with a 70/30 split in time with each parent. They've flipped that under the new deal and, starting this summer, Jr. will be living in the U.K. with Dad and his gf, Chloe Green.

We're told Jeremy and Chloe have already enrolled Jr. in a private school he'll begin attending in the fall.

The new arrangement allows Jeremy to merge both of his families. Remember, he and Chloe -- the Topshop heiress -- just had a baby of their own.

Now, little Jayden Meeks-Green will grow up with his big bro. 

The Game Rich the Kid Needs to Be Armed ... Or He Needs to Call Me!!!

6/16/2018 7:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Game has some advice for Rich the Kid on the heels of the young rapper getting attacked in a home invasion, and it's basically ... get the strap!

Game pulled up to Catch L.A. Friday night, and when we asked him about the brutal beating Rich suffered, he dropped some philosophy on us. His first tip was for Rich -- who's recovering from the Friday morning attack -- to holla at him ... strongly suggesting he's got the 25-year-old rapper's back.

Then, Game got all 'hood Socrates on us. Using 21 Savage's recent pool party incident as an example, he said it's always best to have a gun on you. Ya gotta see how he puts it, though.

Game's POV -- "People get out of jail, people don't get out of caskets."

Peace and love, it ain't.

Robin Thicke 10 Million Reasons to Celebrate ... Plus His Smoking Hot GF!!

6/16/2018 7:58 AM PDT

Robin Thicke is grinning from ear-to-ear again, and it's not just because of April Love Geary ... he just achieved a rare feat in the music world.

Honestly, it looked like Robin Thicke circa 2013 Friday night outside Catch L.A. -- paparazzi blinded Robin and April as they walked out of dinner, and the singer's got a lot to celebrate.

"Blurred Lines" was recently certified Diamond -- which means it's pushed 10 million units sold or streamed. Only 21 other songs, IN HISTORY, have reached that mark! Some of the other artists who've achieved it include Eminem, Katy Perry, Elton John, Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Lady Gaga.

Of course, it might be a little bitter sweet ... since the lawsuit from Marvin Gaye's family cost him and Pharrell millions.

Still, it's clear from this clip, Robin was feeling good Friday night. April's see-through outfit probably didn't hurt.

Chris Hardwick I Never Sexually Assaulted Chloe Dykstra

6/15/2018 9:13 PM PDT
Breaking News

Chris Hardwick is firing back at his ex girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra ... denying her allegations he sexually abused her during their relationship.

Hardwick tells TMZ ... "I was heartbroken to read Chloe's post. Our three year relationship was not perfect -- we were ultimately not a good match and argued -- even shouted at each other -- but I loved her, and did my best to uplift and support her as a partner and companion in any way and at no time did I sexually assault her."

He continues, "When we were living together, I found out that Chloe cheated on me, and I ended the relationship. For several weeks after we broke up, she asked to get back together with me and even told me she wanted to have kids with me, 'build a life' with me and told me that I was 'the one,' but I did not want to be with someone who was unfaithful.

I'm devastated to read that she is now accusing me of conduct that did not occur. I was blindsided by her post and always wanted the best for her. As a husband, a son, and future father, I do not condone any kind of mistreatment of women."

As we reported ... Chloe posted an explosive essay detailing a prior relationship with a man 20 years older than her, who forced to have sex and follow his strict rules. She never named Chris as the ex, but every detail of the story made it clear he's the man to whom she was referring.

Hardwick is already feeling the fallout -- Nerdist, the website he founded and sold to Legendary Entertainment, removed all of his content on Friday, and made it clear he no longer has any affiliation with the company.

He also hosts his own talk show on AMC, as well as "Talking Dead." The channel has yet to comment on the allegations or the fate of Hardwick's shows.

Farrah Abraham Arrest Clothing Line Still Has Her Back ... For Now, Anyway

6/16/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham's dodging one big bullet, financially, after her allegedly drunken arrest because a clothing company is standing by their woman.

Farrah's been a major supporter of the Jessica Rich Collection of women's wear. The company's namesake owner tells TMZ ... the brand will continue to back Abraham despite her barking "Go f*** yourself" to police officers during the arrest early Wednesday morning.

Still, it sounds like Jessica -- who's also worked with Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian -- is putting Farrah on a short leash. She told us, "moving forward I highly suggest any celebrity in any light regardless of any situation should always try to conduct themselves in the best possible light."

TMZ broke the story ... Farrah was arrested early Wednesday morning for allegedly striking a hotel security guard after she was asked to leave The Beverly Hills Hotel. 

The ex-"Teen Mom" and porn star repeatedly laid into cops before she was hauled away.

Although Jessica's giving her a pass this time around -- Farrah might wanna consider walking the straight and narrow ... or risk losing some cash.

Anthony Bourdain Artist Honors Celeb Chef With Lifelike Mural

6/15/2018 7:04 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

While the aura of Anthony Bourdain lives on, fans who drive down Wilshire in West L.A. will get an extra reminder of the celebrity chef ... thanks to an awesome new painting by a popular street muralist.

Jonas Never completed his Bourdain mural Friday in Santa Monica, on the side wall of a new restaurant and bar called Gramercy. He tells TMZ ... he was hired by the joint to paint its signage lettering, and asked if he could also do the mural as a tribute.

Never says he saw how the world was affected by Bourdain's suicide and the legacy he left behind, so he felt compelled to find a way to honor him. Gramercy's an L.A. joint that aims for a New York Lower East Side vibe ... so they agreed it was the perfect spot for his art.

We're told Jonas did the mural for free. His murals can be seen all over L.A. -- from Venice to Burbank -- and outside of Floyd's barbershop locations.
