'American Crime Story'

The Real OJ Mystery ...

Who Was Larry King Banging?

5/20/2015 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"American Crime Story" is missing out on the biggest mystery surrounding the O.J. Simpson case -- not who did it (we all know that) ... but whose ass Larry King was tapping while he was covering the trial!

Our photog got King and his wife Shawn leaving Craig’s with famed OJ attorney Robert Shapiro -- who's being played by John Travolta in 'Crime Story.' 

But Shawn was more interested in who could play Larry -- he's not actually in the TV series -- but as King points out he covered the trial every day on his CNN show. He suggests Warren Beatty for his role (guy can dream) -- but the fireworks start when Shawn asks who he was dating back then.

Watch ... Larry's loose lips get him in big trouble.

For the record ... it was legend back in the day that King was quite the playa back in '95.

Mariah Carey

Diva Does Disneyland

5/20/2015 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519-mariah-carey-disneyland-splashMariah Carey had a relaxing visit to Disneyland on Tuesday ... her staff, not so much.

The "Infinity" singer employed two nannies, four bodyguards (one of whom was tasked with holding her Louis Vuitton bag), three Disneyland VIP tour guides and a woman who served as her umbrella holder while she strolled around the park with her two kids.

Somewhere Nick Cannon is looking at these photos and laughing to himself.

WWE Hall of Famer

Pinning Down Porn Deal

'6-Figure Offer On Table'

5/20/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519_Tammy-Lynn-Sytch_WWE
WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Lynn Sytch ... aka "Sunny" ... could be doing an entirely different kind of rear-naked choke in the VERY near future -- 'cause she's thiiiiis close to signing a monster porn contract. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... Sunny -- widely considered the very first "WWE Diva" -- has been in talks with Vivid Entertainment, the same company that produced Chyna's "Backdoor to Chyna" video.  

Vivid tells us the two sides have spoken several times and a 6-figure offer is on the table for Sunny to become a "genuine porn star" -- not just a 1-time sex tape thing. 

"After the tremendous success of Chyna, this makes total sense. Hoping we can work it out," Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch tells us. 

We're told the deal is "VERY close" to being done ... and that Sunny is prepared to start shooting right away. 

No word on what the first title would be ... but here are some suggestions: 
-- "Piledrivin'"
-- "N.W.O-face"
-- "Monday Night Raw Dog" 
-- "HummerSlam"
-- "D-Generation Triple-X"  
-- "The People's Anal" 

Ok, your turn ... 

Diddy and Drake

We Decided to Become Partners

And We're Gonna Make a Killing

EXCLUSIVE

0519-diddy-drake-tmz-01

Now we know why Diddy and Drake declared a truce ... they decided peace can be highly profitable for both of them.

We found out the former enemies met at 1:00 AM Monday at Mel's Drive-In in West Hollywood ... just the 2 of them, and of course their bodyguards.

We're told the chat was all about creating a joint venture with both of their names. They kicked around everything from clothing, to jewelry to cigars. They did not zero in on a product line but agreed that it would be mutually beneficial for them to partner.

Now it's clear why Diddy and Drake got on the phone last month to settle their war that erupted over Drake's song, "0 to 100."

Omarosa Rips 'Real Housewife'

Back Off, Bitch ...

I’m Working This Corner!

EXCLUSIVE

0519-omarosa-pettifleur-berenger-book-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01O.G. 'Apprentice' bitch Omarosa Manigault isn't about to let some ‘Real Housewife' from Down Under rip-off her self-help book -- and now she's taking legal action to block the "bitch."

The ‘Apprentice’ vet served Pettifleur Berenger -- one of the "Real Housewives of Melbourne" -- with a cease-and-desist for her recent self-help book, "Switch the Bitch: My Formula to Being the Champion of Your Life, Not the Victim."

Sound familiar? Omarosa dropped her own motivational tome, "The Bitch Switch: Knowing How To Turn It On and Off" ... back in October of 2008. 

Gotta say ... Omarosa and her lawyer, Bradford M. Cohen, fired off a pretty entertaining letter. They demand a full accounting of Berenger’s book sales … which they say “should not take long” -- since it's an "absolute bore to read."

0519-SUB-books-omarosa-pettifleur-berenger-book-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01

Lastly, if Berenger doesn't pull her "literary classic" off shelves immediately ... Omarosa says she will file a lawsuit seeking $150k for each violation of her copyright.

Bitches, please.

The White House

It's the 'N***a' House on Google Maps

5/19/2015 5:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0519_nigga_house_google-2

The White House has been targeted by Google Maps as the 'N***a House.'

It's shocking ... if you type in 'N***a House' in the search bar a map pops up showing a map of D.C. highlighting The White House.

For some reason people in the D.C. area can also type in the full slur, with an "er" and get the same result.

It's unclear if someone hacked into Google or if there's a rogue employee.

A Google spokesperson tells TMZ ... "We apologize for any offense this may have caused. Our teams are working to fix this issue quickly."

Lil Wayne & Ray J

Hot New Collaboration

We're Cuckoo for the Coco

5/20/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ray J and Lil Wayne's new track is called "Brown Sugar" ... but after one listen, it’s pretty obvious Weezy's also paying homage to some white stuff.

On the track ... Ray J sings the hook, and Tunechi's verse includes this line: “I’m a junkie for your love, girl your body like base/ I got some cocaine on the mirror, you can powder your face.” 

Let's face it ... the coke craze reignited last year with O.T. Genasis' hit, "CoCo" -- and Weezy and Ray clearly decided they could cash in too.

Drug-laced lyrics aside ... the song sounds like it's sure to be a club banger.

David Letterman

Happy Retirement ...

Enjoy Free Porn For Life!

5/20/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519_david_letterman_TMZDavid Letterman has a shot at a major happy ending when his run at the 'Late Show' comes to an end Wednesday night -- he could snatch a lifetime supply of free porn ... if he's up for it.

The porn site GameLink sent the late night legend a letter offering him free access to its vast online library of adult movies. The letter even highlights a title to get Dave started -- “F*** My Mom & Me #9" ... which famously (to pervs) spoofed Dave's relationship with Bristol and Sarah Palin

GameLink says it's merely thanking Letterman for the many years of laughs and entertainment he's provided viewers.

We doubt Dave will take 'em up on it, but it beats anything AARP has to offer.

Kanye West

I Didn't Curse THAT Much!

Billboard Unfairly Censored Me

5/19/2015 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519_kanye_west_performing_getty3_no-arrowKanye West is pissed off at the Billboard Awards for heavily censoring his performance of "All Day" and "Black Skinhead" because he says they cut his audio even when he wasn't dropping profanities. 

Kanye's mostly-silenced closing act was the talk of the award show -- but sources close to the rapper tell us producers knew when he was going to curse because he gave them the lyrics exactly as he performed them ... and yet they yanked his audio for up to 15 seconds at a time. 

Our sources point out that during "Black Skinhead" a lot of clean lyrics were censored. For instance, the lines -- "My leather black jeans on" ... and "Middle America" were dropped. In other cases, it appears the censor had an itchy trigger finger, and pulled the audio several seconds early.

As we reported ... Kanye did not attend final rehearsal -- but we're told that's because doctors had him on vocal rest. He even needed a cortisone shot over the weekend. Still, he did 2 rehearsals in L.A. earlier in the week for Billboard.

As for the fact you couldn't see Kanye -- we're told he gave producers a specific note about changing lighting and camera angles so he was more visible. We're told Yeezy's a perfectionist when it comes to his final product, and feels like they screwed him.

B.o.B.Concert

Fan Beaten By Security

Video Shows Excessive Force

5/19/2015 2:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-security-punch-launch-02

A B.o.B. fan got his ass whupped during a concert, and the security team continued beating the man long after he was subdued and cuffed.

It went down Sunday at KSFM's 102.5 Live concert in Sacramento. A fan aggressively charged the stage and seemed to just flip out on festival security. The team swarmed the guy and unloaded punch after punch.

Eventually, they took the guy behind a barrier where they thought they were shielded from the crowd. One of the guards decided to throw 2 extra punches to his face for good measure. 

The fan was out of line in the first place, but there's no justification for the security guard gratuitously smacking the guy. 

Sacramento PD says its aware of the video, but unless the victim files a complaint there will be no investigation.
