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."

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.

Bobby Brown

Baby Shower Fun Takes Edge Off

After Bobbi Kristina Battle

5/19/2015 2:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-bobby-brown-baby-shower

Bobby Brown shook off his legal battle with Whitney Houston's family, and spent some time celebrating his expanding family ... at a coed baby shower for his wife.

Bobby and Alicia Brown had about 60 people at their Woodland Hills home over the weekend for some traditional baby shower games, including that clothes pin thing -- whatever ya do, don't say "baby" at the baby shower. Seriously?

Anyway, we're told it was a welcome change of pace for Bobby following his fight to be named Bobbi Kristina's legal guardian. As we first reported ... the judge eventually named him co-guardian with Pat Houston.

At the shower ... Alicia proudly showed off her belly, which got a henna tattoo makeover during the party. As for the sex of the baby -- we're told the couple wants to be surprised.  

Alicia is due some time this summer.

Kellan Lutz

Grab Your Sacks!!

Gives TV Crew Fabulous Cornhole Prizes

5/19/2015 12:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-kellan-lutz-bullseye-show-bag-toss-01

Jacked up Kellan Lutz's biggest muscle might be his heart -- he just hooked up the crew of his new TV show with some serious swag, but he made 'em earn it with an intense pick-up game of cornhole. 

We’re told Lutz -- who hosts the new FOX adrenaline junkie show "Bullseye" -- showed up on the last day of shooting and handed out raffle tickets to roughly 100 crew members.  

Each person got 3 shots to drop their sack in the hole and win one of the awesome prizes Kellan bought -- including Xboxes, PS4s, iPad Airs, Beats by Dre headphones, 50” TVs, Fitbits and Bluetooth speakers. Total cost to the host (with the most) ... more than $10k, we're told.

The biggest winner of the day might be the craft services woman who scored a 50" Samsung flat screen!

We're told Kellan wanted to thank his co-workers for their hard work shooting the show -- where contestants hurl their bodies (or have it hurled) at a giant bullseye. 

If they make it to Season 2 ... should be pretty easy to find crew members.

Dina Lohan

I'm Dating a Techie!!!

5/19/2015 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0518-dina-lohan-with-boyfriend-wm-2Dina Lohan is dating a high-educated guy who describes himself as part hunter, part farmer.

Kevin Jensen has been pretty deep in a long-distance relationship with Lindsay's mom, flying here and there for the last 3 months for hookups.

Kevin's CV is pretty impressive, graduating from UC Berkeley. He says he studied electrical engineering and computer science, which gave him credentials to join a tech company for years.

The 49-year-old went out on his own in 2013, becoming a self-proclaimed entrepreneur. On his LinkedIn account, in describing where he's been doing entrepreneurial work, he says "wherever."

Kev touts he has "an understanding of the balance necessary in 'hunting and farming' -- a good closer."

Good thing ... it seems Dina's looking for a closer, having just unsuccessfully appeared on "The Millionaire Matchmaker."

Kevin says he's a good listener, an essential quality, because Dina has lots of stories to tell ... hope he doesn't scare easily.

Nicki Minaj

Takes Pricey 'Perv' Jab at Tyga ...

And Her Bottom Line

5/19/2015 10:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519-tyga-nicki-minaj-pervert-jersey-TMZ-YOUTUBE-01Nicki Minaj killed two birds with one ridiculously expensive stone -- a $1700 couture jersey with the words "Pervert 17" on it -- which looks like a direct shot at her label mate Tyga

The lacy Givenchy top also came in handy for Nicki's wardrobe in the "Feeling Myself" music video with Beyonce, but considering her bad blood with Tyga ... a lot of people think it's also not-so-subtle commentary about his 17-year-old girlfriend, Kylie Jenner.

Tyga and Nicki have had beef since last year when he said he was pissed he had to work with Nicki and Drake ... just because they're all signed to Young Money.

As for the Givenchy top ... it retails at $1,725!!! We'd say that's a stupid amount of money to spend just for a little revenge, but fact is -- that's just a stupid amount of money to spend on clothing, period.

Luckily, for Nicki .... we're betting her label picked up the tab.
