Or I'll Quit!! [Update]

breaking news

0224-zendya-osbourne-rancic-tmz-02Kelly Osbourne just dropped an ultimatum on Giuliana Rancic and their "Fashion Police" bosses -- issue a mea culpa for saying Zendaya smells like a hippie pot smoker ... or she'll quit the show.

Kelly is responding to the firestorm Giuliana sparked with a comment about the Disney star's Oscar look -- which included new dreadlocks. Rancic said she thought Zendaya must smell like patchouli oil or weed. Kathy Griffin joined in on the "weed" comment.

022415_zendaya_fashion_po_launchKelly went off on a Twitter rant, saying ... "I'm giving everyone involved 24 hours to make it right or the world will hear how I really feel." She added she doesn't condone racism and is seriously questioning staying on the show.

Osbourne reminded fans she's friends with Zendaya -- who herself blasted Rancic for making such an "outrageously offensive" stereotypical comment.

It sounds like no one involved is buying Giuliana's claim her remarks "had NOTHING to do with race." update_graphic_red_bar4:30 PM PT-- Looks like Kelly has pull ... Giuliana just apologized again -- this time on the air during "E! News."

'Power Rangers' Creator

Knock It Off

With Your Van Der Beek Knockoff

2/24/2015 4:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

022415_power_rangers_primary_v4"Power Rangers" producers might morph into mighty angry plaintiffs if one fan-turned-filmmaker doesn't pull down his dark and ultra-violent spoof starring James Van Der Beek ... stat.  

Here's the deal ... producer Adi Shankar posted a badass dystopian spoof of "Power Rangers" on Vimeo, but SCG Power Rangers LLC -- the company behind the real McCoy -- caught wind and demanded it be taken down.

Shankar ... whose previous work includes "The Grey," "Lone Survivor" and "Dredd" -- isn't backing down. It's still posted on YouTube and Shankar's rep, Ash Venkatram says he'll keep it there until he gets a cease and desist. 

The film is worth a watch (while you still can) -- JVDB turns in some hardcore sword work.

Hours Before Show

breaking news

Chris Brown CanadaChris Brown was turned away at the Canadian border just hours before a scheduled concert and he handled the frustrating news with dignity and professionalism. No, really ... he did.

Brown tweeted, "The good people of the Canadian government wouldn't allow me entry. I'll be back this summer and will hopefully see all my Canadian fans!"

Brown was scheduled to play in Montreal Tuesday night and Toronto Wednesday night. According to Brown, both shows were sold out.

Canadian law dictates a person could be "criminally inadmissible" if they have been convicted of a crime involving assault.

Oh, right ... THAT

Pam Anderson & Rick Salomon

'Missing' Dog

Has Been Found, But ...

2/24/2015 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Pamela Anderson Dog Found
The Pam Anderson/Rick Salomon war over his beloved Rottweiler Bumblebee is almost over -- the dog's been found, but has not been reunited with Rick and his daughters just yet. 

According to our sources, Salomon's daughter Tyson and ex-wife E.G. found the dog at a Malibu pet hospital, where he has been boarded for the past five days. Pam previously booted Tyson and the dog from her Malibu home after TMZ posted a story about Rick filing for annulment. Pam had previously claimed Bumblebee was at the groomer, but that turned out to be false.

We're told E.G. and Tyson were not allowed to take Bumblebee home from the hospital because only Rick is the registered owner. Problem is ... Rick is currently working in Las Vegas. 

We're told Rick should be back Tuesday night to go collect his dog. 

As for why noted animal activist Pam would seemingly use the dog as a pawn in her battle with Rick -- we reached out to Pam for comment ... so far, no word back.

Honey Boo Boo

TLC Ultimatum to Family

Stop Pitching Yourselves, Or Else

EXCLUSIVE

Honey Boo Boo Song

Honey Boo Boo's hopes of being a pop diva may have just been shattered ... the star's former network says they'll come down on her like a ton of bricks if she releases a song.

Sources close to the family say TLC sent the family an ultimatum ... they can't work for another entertainment company until their contract with the network runs its course at the end of May.

Mama June, Honey, and the fam were in town last week shopping a reboot of their show to other networks and HBB recorded a song, "Movin' Up," with Pumpkin and Adam Barta, produced by LA On The Track.

Our sources say the network would ultimately take them to court if the family tries to make money before June. TLC has paid the entire family their money for the season that never aired, plus tutoring and health insurance.

Apparently the family isn't scared, because they've lawyered up. 

Kanye West

I Ain't Saying Kim's a Gold Digger ...

But the Black Thing Is Real

2/24/2015 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

022415_kanye_west_launch_v2Kanye West roasted his wife Kim Kardashian for her legendary love of the black man ... and brought the house down at the BET Honors.

Kanye was accepting the Visionary Award at the ceremony -- which was pre-taped, but aired Monday night -- and talked about how guys in Chicago barbershops talk about black men in entertainment hooking up with white women ... and white women nabbing rich black guys.  

You gotta watch for the punch line because he absolutely nails Kim ... and then concludes, "It ain't got nothing to do with the money." 

Ye also recalls a story Kim told him ... about her dad, Robert Kardashian, losing it when someone spray painted "ni**er lover" on his car -- and how he used it to teach Kim a lesson about racism.

Check it out ... it's Kanye at his funniest and most poignant.

I Just Bought a $2.7 Mil House!

EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner Buys Home

Kylie Jenner is 17. She's buying a $2.7 million house. FML, right?

Sources tell TMZ, Kylie has inked a deal to buy this 4,900 square foot house in The Oaks, an exclusive gated community in Calabasas.

The house -- which is a block from Kourtney and Khloe -- has a sick home theater, a pool, 5 bedrooms, an awesome kitchen, and on and on.

Kylie has made a lot of money on KUWTK. To give you an idea, we're told Scott Disick banks $4 million a season, so she's got the cash. We're told Kris Jenner is "helping her" with the purchase, but we're told it's Kylie loot.

It's a little weird that a girl who is about to turn 18 and is big on the party scene is settling for a suburban, family neighborhood, 24 miles from the action of Hollywood. Justin Bieber tried it and it didn't work out too well.

BTW ... Kevin also made it clear again ... he'd love to host the Oscars. Not a bad idea, right?

Justin Bieber 
may have turned over a new leaf, but not everyone got the memo ... because TMZ has learned a guy filed a police report ... claiming he was decked by security just for snapping a pic.

Steven Prince tells TMZ he was at FLUXX, a San Diego nightclub, Sunday to watch T.I. perform. He spotted Bieber in a VIP area and went over to take a photo.

Prince claims a security guard screamed at him and began shoving him, then punched him twice in the face -- on the cheek and jaw.  

The guy claims the club tried to make nice by offering him a free drink, but then kicked him out. 

Prince filed a police report and -- surprise -- he's lawyered up and plans to sue.

Sources close to Bieber claim there was an incident but insist the security guard did NOT work for Bieber ... he was hired by the club.

NBA's Stephen Jackson

I'm Still Bangin' My Estranged Wife

... So Call Off Divorce!

2/24/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0223_stephen-jackson_renata_instagramIf you're still intercourse'n ... there's no divorce'n -- so says ex-NBA star Stephen Jackson ... who's asking a judge to throw out his wife's divorce petition because they're still knockin' boots like a married couple. 

It's one of the strangest legal docs we've ever seen ... Jackson says the judge should NOT grant his wife Renata a divorce because he believes she's just trying to score a prenup payout ... when in actuality, they're still very much a couple. 

FYI -- Jackson says Renata's payout under the prenup is based on his net worth at the time she filed for divorce in 2013  ... and since he was still playing in the NBA at the time, the payout would be significantly larger.

But in new docs filed in state court in Georgia, Jackson says he can prove his marriage wasn't dead then ... and it isn't dead now ... because he's still banging his wife on the regular.  

In fact, Stephen says he often still takes her on fancy vacations to places like the Bahamas, Cancun and Jamaica ... and presumably bangs her there too. 

Which leads to this explanation Stephen included in new court docs -- "Despite filing for divorce, [Renata] continued her relationship with [Stephen] in an effort to 'have her cake and eat it, too.'"

We can't imagine this case is going to have a happy ending for Jackson -- because if he gets his wish, he's still gonna have a pissed off wife on his hands. And if he loses, he's gonna have to cut a big, fat check. 

At least he's still getting laid.
