Marlon Wayans made it clear to our photog ... he's unapologetic for generalizing about white chicks on the dance floor.
Marlon took a selfie at a Beyonce/Jay Z concert with a white woman dancing in the background and Instagrammed it with the caption, "UNRHYTHMIC WHITE WOMAN dancing next to me ..."
Marlon took a ration of crap from people who say he was racist. It didn't help that the chick was Australian singer Delta Goodrem, who's pretty popular.
Marlon was leaving Equinox gym in West Hollywood Wednesday when he made it clear ... he stands by his words.

Da Band Singer Sara Stokes
Thrown In Da Jail
After Brawl With Hubby
8/7/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Da Band singer Sara Stokes -- who's been in and out of trouble since the group's heyday -- is in jail after a knock-down-drag-out brawl with her husband.
Cops tell us ... they were called to Stokes' home July 21st at 3:45 A.M. ... and found her and hubby Tony outside -- fighting on the ground. They say Stokes was drunk.
Stokes was arrested and charged with domestic violence. And as if things weren't bad enough ... she's now in hot water because the arrest has triggered a probation violation for a prior DV incident -- also involving her husband. So she'll be spending the next 93 days in the pokey for that.
Stokes has had other run-ins with the law since Da Band hit it big in 2002 on "Making the Band 2." She was arrested in 2009 for stabbing her husband ... and got 3 years probation in a plea deal.

I Fear Electrocution By Drone
8/6/2014 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kanye West fears the paparazzi will fly drones over his home to get shots of his child in the pool and accidentally electrocute her.
TMZ has obtained a copy of Kanye's deposition in the lawsuit filed by a photog who was attacked by the rapper at LAX.
In the depo ... Kanye sarcastically asks the photog's lawyer, "Is your daughter stalked by like drones? Are there drones flying where she's trying to learn how to swim at age 1?"
Kanye goes on ... "Wouldn't you like to just teach your daughter how to swim without a drone flying? What happens if a drone falls right next to her? Would it electrocute her?"
As for how that could happen, Kanye says, "Could it fall and hit her if that paparazzi doesn't understand how to remote control the drone over their house?"
Kanye then explains he and Kim are selling their $11 million Bel Air mansion because they didn't realize paparazzi could shoot directly from the street.
TMZ broke the story ... Kim and Kanye are in escrow for a $20 million secluded estate in Hidden Hills -- near Calabasas. But Kanye clearly thinks even his 3 1/2 acres are not private ... because of paparazzi-controlled drones.

Ex-MGM Mogul Kirk Kerkorian
Wife Loses Bid for $500K a Month
In Horse Expenses!
8/6/2014 2:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ex-MGM mogul Kirk Kerkorian just scored a knockout punch against his ex-wife Lisa Bonder ... a judge just shut down her request to up monthly child support from $100K to $565K.
It's a spectacular defeat for Bonder, who claimed their 16-year-old daughter Kira needed $491,000 a month just for equestrian expenses. Kira is an accomplished rider who has Olympic aspirations, but apparently the judge found Bonder's request ridiculous.
The judge felt Bonder could make do with $100,000 a month ... which by the way is the largest child support award on record in the U.S.
The judge scoffed at Bonder's request in his written ruling -- obtained by TMZ -- saying, "There is a difference between the 'needs' of a child and the 'wants' of a child."
Here's what's really amazing. Kerkorian and Bonder were married a grand total of 28 days back in 1999 and the child isn't even his ... when he agreed to pay support he didn't know Kira wasn't his biological child.
Kerkorian, who was repped by attorneys Judy Bogen and Joe Mannis, will continue to pay $100K a month.

Did you play tennis off the coast of a fancy island today with your family before being helicoptered back to your yacht? No? That's because you're not Bill Gates.
Gates -- along with his wife Melinda and their kids Rory, Jennifer and Phoebe -- knocked a few balls around in Porto Cervo, Sardinia before being flown back to the massive yacht they're renting.
After that, the family went through a rack of wet suits (because who doesn't keep their wet suits on a clothes rack?) before taking a dip in the Mediterranean Sea and hopping on jet skis.
'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'
I Saw Marilyn's Health Deteriorate
8/6/2014 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Gunnar Hansen -- who terrorized actress Marilyn Burns as Leatherface in the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" -- says Burns appeared skinny and frail in recent years ... and appeared to be in declining health before her death.
Hansen tells TMZ ... he and Burns remained close after the 1974 horror flick, and says her health issues were obvious to him in the last few years. But he adds, they never discussed any specific ailment.
TMZ broke the story ... the 65-year-old Burns was found dead Tuesday at her home in Houston. An autopsy is being conducted to determine cause of death.
Hansen -- who continues to act in slasher/horror flicks -- says he spoke to Burns once a month and would visit her at home -- calling her a wonderful woman who was humorous and generous.
He says he and other actors from the original film -- including Allen Danziger and Ed Neal -- are making arrangements to attend Burns' funeral.
In El Paso

Wiz Khalifa -- who famously thumbed his nose at cops in El Paso by posting a jailhouse selfie -- is now a wanted man in that fair city.
Khalifa -- who was arrested in May for trying to sneak weed onto a plane at the El Paso Airport -- failed to appear in court Wednesday, so the judge issued an arrest warrant.
You may recall ... when Wiz was in the El Paso slammer he took a selfie and tweeted it out ... which triggered an investigation into jailhouse security.
Looks like there may be more opportunities for Wiz to practice his photography skills.
Leaves Without Daughter
Epic Fight with Delta
8/6/2014 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ludacris landed in Atlanta Monday morning and left one item at the airport ... his 13-year-old daughter ... but Luda says Delta royally screwed up.
Sources tell TMZ ... the two were flying together from LAX to Atlanta, where his daughter Karma was going to catch a connecting flight to NYC solo. Turns out there was a 4-hour layover. Ludacris left his daughter in the first class lounge.
The problem ... Luda's daughter is not allowed to fly without an adult, because she's under 15, so Delta would not let her on the flight.
We're told Delta called Ludacris and informed him the airline would provide adult supervision if he paid a $100 fee, but the rapper refused. So he came back to the airport, picked up his daughter and they went home.
A rep for Ludacris tells TMZ ... Luda booked the flight himself -- a first class ticket -- and was told there would only be a 1 1/2 hour layover. Luda claims he was told when he bought the ticket the only requirement was that an adult needed to be present in NYC when the plane landed -- Karma's mom.
Luda was shocked and angry when Delta changed the rules.
12:05 PM -- A source close to Ludacris tells us he paid the $100 and put Karma on the next available flight with a first class seat.
