Lil Wayne Suspect in Nightclub Assault

6/27/2016 10:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0627-lil-wayne-TMZ-01Lil Wayne slugged a nightclub doorman after the BET Awards ... according to the doorman, who's filed a battery report with LAPD.

The bouncer was working the door Sunday night at Hyde nightclub on Sunset ... where Wayne and 2 Chainz were hosting an after-party. Law enforcement sources tell us things got heated when several members of Weezy's entourage got turned away at the door.

We're told Wayne and the bouncer started arguing about who was getting in, and the bouncer says that's when Wayne uncorked a punch to his face.

The Hyde staffer went to a hospital for treatment, and called police ... who are investigating and want to talk to Wayne. Our sources in Wayne's camp say he denies punching the bouncer, and says the guy actually worked in Wayne's VIP section all night. 

They say there was a brief altercation, but only because the bouncer mistakenly grabbed Wayne by the arm ... not realizing who he was. He later apologized, according to our Wayne sources.

The injuries were minor. We're told Wayne could be looking at a misdemeanor battery.

Ray J Manager's PISSED at Kanye 'Watch Your F****** Mouth!'

6/27/2016 8:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

If Kanye West wanted to get under people's skin with his "Famous" music video ... it worked, and now he's got Ray J's manager on his ass ... making serious threats.

Ray was in downtown L.A. when we asked what he thought of his nude appearance in Kanye's vid. Watch this -- Ray doesn't have much to say, but his music manager, Wack 100, said a lot, and sent a message to West -- "Tell that n**** he a long way from Chicago."

There was a lot more -- and it's obvious that something about the video has rubbed Ray J and his team the wrong way.

If you forgot, Wack is the same guy who manages The Game, and knocked out Stitches with one punch last year. Sooo ... there's that.

EXCLUSIVE

0624-chris-brown-tmz-02Chris Brown allegedly cornered a female tour manager and went on a threatening, drug-fueled tirade so intense, she jumped off the tour bus and quit on the spot.

Sources connected to Chris' tour tell us the incident went down May 23 during Chris' European tour. Nancy Ghosh -- who's worked with the likes of J Lo, Kanye West and Justin Bieber -- claims Brown cursed her out in a dispute over her employment terms.

The day after the incident she fired off an email to Brown's team ... in which she explained she felt unsafe because Chris has been "irrational and high on drugs." Ghosh also claimed Brown referenced "what he did to Mike G" ... and threatened to do the same to her. TMZ broke the story ... Chris' ex-manager, Mike G, sued him for an alleged beatdown.

Ghosh said she refused to stay on the bus after the argument out of fear for her safety. 

We're told a production manager on the tour also complained, through his lawyer ... claiming Brown has been verbally abusive and threatening. 

We've reached out to Chris' camp ... so far no word back.

Mariah Carey The Second Nick Signs I'm Getting Hitched

6/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-mariah-carey-james-packer-happy-TMZ-01Mariah Carey has been coy about when she might marry James Packer ... but we're told they now want to seal the deal as soon as the ink is dry on her final divorce docs.

As we've been reporting, Mariah has been pushing Nick Cannon to sign the papers for more than a year, but he won't do it. We're told he hasn't made any money or custody demands ... that's been a done deal for a long time. Mariah's people believe Nick's lawyers are dragging it out for as long as possible.

James has already divorced his wife, so all that's left is Mimi. And one other thing ... our sources say they will have a prenup, but it's unclear if that's been signed.

That said, they want to marry ASAP. Realistically it probably won't happen until August at the earliest, when she wraps up her Vegas gig. They've planned to sail on James' yacht for a month off the coast of Capri, which would be a pretty perfect spot to tie the knot. 

As for Nick, if you believe his freestyle, he'll finally sign.

Not so. According to David there was something more sinister going on, and he decided he wasn't gonna take it.
