Her rendition of Bob Dylan's, "It Ain't Me Babe" -- with Ben Folds -- brought down the house.

Floyd Mayweather knows how to throw a party ... just ask his daughter, who turned 16 and got a shindig suitable for royalty.

The bash set Floyd back 7 figures. It went down Saturday ... a BBQ in the afternoon followed by a blow-out at the Mirage Grand Ballroom in Vegas. Performers -- Drake and Future, of course.

#Future! Happy Sweet Sixteen @moneyyaya

Celine Dion I Can Sing and Execute Wills

5/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520-Celine-Dion-Rene-Angelil-TMZ-GETTY-01Celine Dion is not only a singer ... she's an official administrator of a vast estate.

We've obtained legal docs that make Celine the official administrator of her late husband Rene Angelil's estate, along with 2 others.  

The docs reveal Rene left a will, and he was generous to his children, including kids from a prior marriage.

Rene left homes to 2 of his kids from his first marriage ... it looks like both homes are in Canada.

Celine and Rene have 2 vast estates, both of which are up for sale ... a $45 million Florida estate and a $25 million Quebec castle. The will says once the properties are sold, $9 million will go to a trust ... presumably for their 3 children. BTW ... there are other properties as well, which Celine retains.

Celine also gets all the furniture, cars, clothing, jewelry and personal effects. Most of his money goes into a trust ... which typically would provide for the surviving spouse and children.


And one amusing thing ... probate was opened in Nevada. Celine, who's one of the nicest people in show biz, had to declare she's not a felon.


The Kardashians Doctor Slaps Name On Facelifts ... Doggone It!

5/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520-kardashians-face-lift-art-TMZ-01The Kardashians' faces have inspired a new cosmetic procedure which bears their name ... even though they're not the ones cashing in on it.

That honor goes to Australia's Dr. Gary Eldridge, who just filed for a U.S. trademark on his "minimally invasive face/neck lift" ... which he calls the "Kardashian Facelift." He says it's a painless injection of fibrin protein that forces skin to repair and rejuvenate itself naturally.


Despite the name, Kris Jenner and her flock aren't getting a penny from Eldridge's practice. In fact, he cleverly says his procedure is named after his daughter's dog ... Kardashian. 

If you wanna bark up that tree ... it'll cost you $1,870.


Mariah Carey Soakin' Up the Spotlight

5/22/2016 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mariah Carey is a breath of fresh air ... finally a celeb who goes to an L.A. restaurant known as a paparazzi hangout, and then doesn't pretend she's shocked or put out.

Mariah owned the moment as she dined with fiance James Packer and her manager Stella in WeHo at Craig's.  

It's fun watching her ... she doesn't give a crap Lee Daniels scoffed at her reality show, and she's more than happy to show her boo affection in front of the cameras.

Well done.

The couple cruised the Gulf of Cannes ... probably a better time than hanging at the Film Festival.

'Simpsons' Creator Matt Groening I Need to Change the Script on Trump

5/22/2016 7:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Simpsons creator Matt Groening is eating the words he wrote, telling our photog even though the show has an uncanny ability to predict the future ... he doesn't think Donald Trump will be President.

We got Matt Saturday at LAX, and he acknowledged the show has been like a crystal ball, predicting the Ebola outbreak, the mauling of Roy from Siegfried and Roy, and the horse meat scandal.

The show predicted back in 2000 Trump would be elected Prez.

Matt's now trying to re-write history that hasn't yet been written.

Chris Brown Accused of Ordering Yacht Party Beatdown

5/22/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517-chris-brown-tmzChris Brown got pissed at a photog covering a celeb-filled event, and ordered his peeps to regulate ... according to the photog who's now gone to the cops.

It all went down at a launch party on a private yacht last weekend in Fort Lauderdale. Michael Watts, the photog, claims he was taking pics of Chris and Warren Sapp when CB got pissed and began yelling obscenities. 

According to the police report filed by Watts -- and obtained by TMZ -- Chris went ballistic during a shot with singer Tank, shouting ... "This ain't no press release, you're done!" Watts claims CB's enforcer then shoved him so hard, he spun around and cracked his $1,200 Canon lens against a wall.

The photog says he left to avoid further confrontation. Chris flatly denies his guy hit anyone, or in his words ... "It's a lie, lie, lie, lie."


Justin Timberlake Randy's Donuts Employee Can't Stop The Feeling!

5/22/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Timberlake rarely screws up, but he did when he hired an actor to play a Randy's Donuts employee instead of just using the real life baker ... so say the peeps at the iconic shop. 

JT's new music video for "Can't Stop the Feeling!" features famous L.A. landmarks and their dancing "employees." But the manager at Randy's tells us the vid would have been more awesome and authentic if his lead baker, Ismael, was doing the dancing.

The manager says his employees were bummed producers didn't invite Ismael because he's famous for breaking it down in the kitchen -- as you can see in the vid they sent us.

At least you can see Ismael's hand in the music vid's shots of donuts getting glazed. 

We're guessing Justin's crying a river right about now.

Playmate Ashley Mattingly 'Stalker' Showed Up at My Door

5/22/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520_ashley-mattingly_tmzEx-Playboy Playmate Ashley Mattingly called the police on a man she says angrily showed up at her home after a year of flooding her with calls and texts.

Ashley, Miss March 2011, tells TMZ ... a guy named Joey claimed to be a DJ and contacted her about doing a club appearance, which she ultimately turned down. Ashley claims Joey kept reaching out anyway -- and even left her a sterling silver Tiffany necklace on Easter.

But according to the police report filed by Ashley, and obtained by TMZ, he showed up at her Orange County home last month and took back the necklace. Ashley called police to report a "stalking," but Joey was gone by the time cops got there.

Ashley wanted the incident documented, but didn't want to press charges.

Joey admits taking back the necklace, but says he's no stalker. Police reviewed text messages and say they didn't see anything threatening.
