Miley Cyrus

Burglar Sentenced

Two Years Behind Bars

5/20/2015 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0505-miley-cyrus-tmz-pcnMiley Cyrus doesn't have to worry about the guy who broke into her Toluca Lake home burglarizing her new place in Hidden Hills ... that's because he's been sentenced to two years in state prison.

Rusty Edward Sellner broke into Cyrus' pad back in December. He was eventually arrested and later pled no contest to one count of first degree residential burglary.

A judge on Wednesday sentenced Sellner to two years in prison, but gave him credit for the 270 days he has already served.

Prosecutors had said Sellner made off with a large amount of both her and her brother's personal property. A hearing will be scheduled at a later date to determine how much in restitution Sellner must pay to Cyrus.

Cyrus recently closed a deal for a massive ranch on the outskirts of Los Angeles.

Taylor Swift

Decked Out in Hardcore BDSM Gear

For 'Bad Blood' Video

5/20/2015 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-taylor-swift-syrenTaylor Swift was deep into the world of bondage and discipline when she shot her new music video.

Taylor's outfits are deceiving ... they don't look especially edgy, but we found out they were pulled off the rack at a store specializing in racks ... the BDSM variety. It's all courtesy of The Stockroom, a well-known, hardcore fetish store in the Silverlake area of L.A. 

We're told Taylor's people scooped up $13,000 in fetish clothing for the shoot, on the promise they'd end up buying 25% of what they pulled. That's a big give, because the store generally doesn't loan out its merchandise on such a large scale, but after all ... it's T-Swift. 

Now here's the big bonus. If Taylor's people don't buy the whole lot, the store will be able to resell fetish duds that have Taylor Swift's scent all over them.

Better for business if the stuff isn't dry cleaned before it's returned.

U.S. Supreme Court

Google Says

They're a Bunch of Dumb F***s!!!

5/20/2015 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-supreme-court-02

Google is pissing off another branch of our government, because if you live in D.C. and type in "dumb f***" on Google Maps, the United States Supreme Court pops up.

Unlike the White House -- where anyone in the U.S. can type "N***a House" and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue pops up -- the Supreme Court only appears in Washington D.C. Google says it's working on the "n" word problem.

As for "dumb f***," it seems to change regionally. In California, if you search "dumb f***" you get Cal Poly Pomona.

Check what comes up in your area. It's fun.

Bill Murray

So Drunk

I Fell For MSNBC!!!

5/20/2015 6:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Forget being too drunk to stand, Tuesday night Bill Murray was too drunk to sit!

Murray appeared on MSNBC’s "The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell" ... which was not his first stop of the night.

The "Groundhog Day" star did "The Late Show with David Letterman," where he appeared to swig vodka right from the bottle. Bill then went to dinner, where he enjoyed a few glasses of wine with his meal.

Cut to his next stop at MSNBC ... where he clumsily sat on a chair and then crashed to the floor.

Any issues regarding alcohol consumption are clearly resolved after the break when Bill slurs his way through the interview.

'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.

Dear Barack Obama ... DO NOT PISS OFF YOUR WIFE!!!

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

5/20/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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!

5/20/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
