Karrueche and Chris Brown

He Loves Me Not,

He Loves Me!

12/25/2014 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1225-karrueche-tran-rings-christmas-INSTAGRAM-01
Chris Brown
has gone from venomously putting Karrueche Tran on blast ... to giving her what looks like a small diamond mine.

Karrueche coyly posted the pic of her latest acquisitions ... courtesy of CB. 

She's not saying if either is an engagement ring, but it's doubtful given that it's on the wrong hand.

It's certainly a major about face ... we spotted them the other night leaving Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood, the first time they've been publicly seen since their nuclear breakup.

Looks like he also gave her a pooch.

This one does answer to "bitch."

Amanda Bynes

Stable, Lucid and Off Meds

12/25/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes Mental Health
Amanda Bynes is OUT of her manic state ... acting completely "normal" and her family thinks it's nothing short of "mind blowing."

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Amanda is off all meds, including Adderall, which caused her to get a DUI

When you speak with Amanda there is no way you would know she's been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolarity. She is completely lucid. 

We're told things have stabilized so much, her parents have given her limited access again to bank accounts. She spends her time reading, doing yoga, meditation and pilates ... all stress reducers which doctors say are important for these mental disorders.

We're also told Amanda's recent trip to USC -- where she'd like to enroll as a psych major -- was all planned by her.

Here's the rub. Doctors have told Amanda's family, people with such mental illnesses sometimes rebound and they can be ok for months, only to relapse again.

The family believes during these stable periods, the best thing is to give Amanda enough freedom to enjoy it.

Kris Jenner XMAS Bash

Kids and Mom in Furious

'I'm The Hottest' Contest

12/25/2014 7:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1225-kris-jenner-christmas-party-INSTAGRAM-01
Kris Jenner
had her first XMAS bash as a single woman ... lots of friends but notable absences. 

There are reports Kim and Kanye were no shows, but take a look at the 2 pics of Kim and Kanye separately in what looks like the photo booth inside the party. 

Khloe shook her ass, Kendall sexed it up, and we'd say Kylie did the same but she's 17.

Bruce was a no show ... ditto Rob, Brody and Brandon

The bash was thrown at Kris' Calabasas mansion, where she had a giant tent constructed and laced with XMAS lights.

Is Kris Jenner the happiest person you've ever seen who went through a divorce?

10:45 AM PT -- Turns out Bruce did show up to the party ... and snapped a pic with his daughters.

Mally Mall

Nick Cannon Praises

Trashes Mariah in New Album

12/25/2014 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

122514_mally_mall_launch_v4
Mally Mall dropped one on us at LAX Wednesday ... saying he's doing an album with Nick Cannon next year and there are references to Mariah Carey ... some of which are NOT flattering. 

The mega hip-hop producer first made it sound like Nick played nice in describing his relationship, but then he half took it back and said Nick's comments will be "controversial." 

From all we've heard, Nick's trying to put a good face on his current relationship with Mariah, making it appear they're getting along much better as friends than as husband and wife.

Looks like that status could change.

Casey Kasem

Eternally Lonely

12/25/2014 7:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1225-casey-kasem-grave-tmz-02
The nuclear family war surrounding Casey Kasem's death was punctuated by one of the saddest photos we've seen in a long time ... a lone, dark grave in a far away land.

As we reported, the famed DJ was finally buried last week in an Oslo, Norway cemetery ... 6 months after he died.

Casey's wife Jean and his kids have been feuding over everything, including an autopsy and burial. The kids believe Jean moved the body to Norway to let it sit so it would decompose and frustrate cops in their elder abuse investigation.

Casey's grave is buried in snow in the dark, surrounded by other graves with lit candles celebrating XMAS and memories.

RIP Casey.

breaking news

1224-kevin-nash-mug-shot-01

Wrestling superstar Kevin Nash has been suspended by the WWE in the wake of his violent, bloody arrest in Florida ... TMZ has learned. 

We broke the story ... 6'10" Nash was popped after allegedly choke slamming his 6'5" son Tristen during a domestic dispute.

Now, the WWE tells us that while 55-year-old Nash has not performed "regularly" since 2004, his non-wrestling "legends" contract has been immediately suspended until the domestic dispute is resolved. 

The "legends" contract is primarily a promotional deal with the WWE -- where Nash makes appearances under the WWE banner.

Lil Wayne

Warns Birdman ...

My Next Rant's Gonna Be in Court!

EXCLUSIVE

Birdman Lil Wayne Feud
Lil Wayne
 is ready to take his feud with Birdman to the next level ... threatening to drag him and Cash Money into court if they don't drop his album NOW. 

Sources very close to the feud tell TMZ ... Wayne has issued a simple ultimatum, in writing, no less -- release "Tha Carter V" pronto ... or he will sue to leave Cash Money altogether. 

We're told Wayne is standing firm in his belief the album is ready to go -- but Birdman still says there's a lot of behind-the-scenes work left to be done. 

Wayne and Birdman still aren't speaking to each other. We're told Wayne is only focused on the album. When and if that gets done, he'll worry about fixing the friendship ... if that's even possible now.

'Love and Hip Hop: New York' Star

Brutal Attacker

Getting Off Easy

12/25/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tahira Jose Attacker"Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Tahiry Jose's is still recovering from a violent attack during a fall fashion show ... but we found out her attacker got off really light.

The guy -- Charles Suggs -- pled guilty to assault this week for his brutal attack that left the model in a neck brace and covered with cuts and bruises.

Suggs copped a plea and got off with no jail time. He has to complete an anger management program and he has to stay clear of Jose for 5 years ... or else.

Jose was backstage at the Toure Designs show in September when Suggs started arguing with her. He snapped, charged her and began throwing punches, dragged her down and kept wailing on her until the crew broke it up.

Jose is still in physical therapy.

Rush Limbaugh

Idris Elba Should Not Be James Bond ...

Hue Is Wrong!

12/24/2014 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1224-rush-limbaugh-idris-elba-01
James Bond
was white, is white and should always be white ... at least according to Rush Limbaugh

On his radio show Tuesday, Limbaugh was reacting to a story that came from the leaked Sony emails ... saying Idris Elba, star of "Luther" and "The Wire," should take over the iconic part from Daniel Craig.

But Limbaugh feels that Elba (who he describes as "African-English," since Elba is a Brit) is not right for the role because Bond was created as a white guy and should stay that way.

Limbaugh said, "Now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton rather than a white from Scotland. But that's not who James Bond is, and I know it's racist to probably even point this out."



Limbaugh tried turing the tables, asking people what they would think if Barack Obama was played by George Clooney and Kate Hudson were to play Michelle.

Rush has a bunch of other examples you just have to hear.

WWE Star Kevin Nash

Arrested for Battery

Bloody Fight with Son

12/24/2014 6:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1224-kevin-nash-mug-shot-01
update_graphic_red_bar
TMZ just got the two police reports. As for Kevin's arrest ... the report says he told cops his son came home wasted and belligerent toward him and Kevin's wife, then spit in his face and elbow-checked him. Kevin told cops he pinned Tristen to the ground and that's when Tristen scratched his face.

But Tristen said Kevin was berating him over his relationship with his girlfriend. He says Kevin then choke-slammed him to the ground and, just like Kevin's signature move, Tristen says he hit is head so hard on the ground he blacked out.  

Cops arrested Kevin because they felt he was the "primary aggressor."

As for Tristen's arrest two hours later ... Tristen's uncle told cops the young man -- who is 6'5" and 200 lbs -- was drunk and  had "slung his mom around the kitchen" and tried attacking him as well.
update-grey-gray-barWrestling superstar Kevin Nash was arrested early Christmas Eve morning -- after getting into a bloody fight with his teenage son Tristen ... TMZ has learned.

The 55-year-old legend -- who is currently under contract with the WWE -- was taken into custody in Volusia County, Florida  after cops received a call about a domestic incident just after midnight. 

When cops arrived to the scene ... they noticed blood on Kevin's face and arrested Nash.

Two hours later, cops received another 911 call from a person claiming 18-year-old Tristen attacked his mother. He was also arrested for battery. 

Cops tell TMZ alcohol may have been a factor. 

1224-SUB-tristen-nash-mug-shot-01

Both men were hauled to a nearby jail where they were booked and are currently being held without bond. 

FYI -- Nash (6'10" and 277 pounds) is one of of the biggest stars in wrestling ... he's won titles in the WWE, WCW and TNA ... by using his signature move, the jackknife powerbomb. 



Nash has also had a decent film career. He appeared in "Magic Mike" and will be in the sequel as well. He's also appeared in "John Wick," "Rock of Ages," "The Longest Yard" ... and as Super Shredder in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze."

Tristen is an aspiring singer in a band. 

Just four years ago, Kevin fiercely defended Tristen when Internet trolls blasted the music he posted in YouTube. Kevin wrote, "or those that are just haters because he is my kid, f**k you and I hope you wake up with a brain tumor tomorrow."
