Lil Wayne Don't Blame Me 'Cause 'Carter V' Hasn't Dropped!!!

9/21/2018 11:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne's highly anticipated 'Carter V' album is nowhere to be found on the day TONS of listeners expected to hear it ... and salivating fans have no one to blame but themselves.

A source close to Weezy's camp tells TMZ ... the hype surrounding September 21 as the release date for 'Carter V' was all generated by pure speculation that somehow morphed into conspiracies. Fact is ... all Young Money did was tease the cover and NEVER once mentioned an album release date.

The hype started after Floyd Mayweather posted the album cover on Instagram earlier this month and captioned it "[Goat emoji] #21." That led everyone to believe the album was dropping at midnight on September 21. But when midnight came and went ... fans were left scratching their heads, especially after Floyd deleted the post. James Harden followed suit with "#13" and also deleted it.

Making matters even more confusing -- Michael Vick and Kobe Bryant on Friday posted the same album cover on IG but captioned it "#7" and "#8," respectively. In retrospect, they were just posting the cover along with their jersey numbers. Wayne's daughter, Reginae, also posted the album cover on IG but her caption simply had "#C5."

Point is ... Wayne said zilch about Sept. 21. The wait continues ... 

John Salley Nick Cannon Broke The Rules ... Kanye Was Right

9/21/2018 12:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Salley has a clear side in the Kanye West vs. Nick Cannon feud ... telling TMZ Sports West was 100% within his rights to send shots at Cannon for talking about Kim Kardashian West

Ye fired off on Nick Thursday ... saying NC has no right mentioning Kim's name in interviews, and talking about her body ... even though Nick and Kim dated back in the day.

Cannon fired back, saying he's NEVER disrespected Kim but has answered questions about her honestly, and will continue to do so.

We got Salley leaving Catch in L.A. and asked him which side of the fence he falls on ... and he said it all goes back to a rule he learned during his NBA playing career.

"Everything was open except wives and fiancees."

Salley goes on to say Kanye is "kinda right" to be pissed at Nick Cannon, and that he thinks West's warning shot is enough that no one will talk about Kim Kardashian in a sexually objectifying way again.

Okay, John.

Drake Postpones Miami Shows with Migos

9/21/2018 10:44 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake is moments away from postponing his two upcoming shows in Miami ... TMZ has learned. 

The rapper was scheduled to perform Friday and Saturday at American Airlines Arena with Migos ... but our sources say those shows will be moved to another date. We're told there's an issue with production. 

You'll remember, the tour got off to a rough start, with several dates getting pushed back or canceled altogether. A tour bus used for the crew was also towed before opening night in Kansas City.

The tour has had its bright spots, including a guest appearance from Meek Mill where the two squashed their long-running beef

Drakes appearance Saturday night at E11EVEN Miami and Sunday night at LIV have been canceled as well.

We're told the Miami dates will be made up on November 13 and 14.

Joaquin Phoenix Why So Serious? There's a New Joker in Town!!!

9/21/2018 10:52 AM PDT

Joaquin Phoenix is gonna make you remember -- if you'd even forgot -- why clowns are so damn creepy ... by revealing the new big screen Joker.

Filming for "Joker" just got started this month and Warner Bros. just pulled back the curtain on Joaquin in full makeup. The studio dropped this time-lapse video of him getting into character.   

This flick is an origin film about Batman's archenemy ... so we'll get a new, closer look at how Arthur Fleck became Gotham's clown prince of crime.

So far, Joaquin's announced costars include Robert De Niro, Zazie BeetzMarc Maron and Bryan Callen. Martin Scorsese is producing and Todd Phillips, of "The Hangover" fame, is directing.

It's scheduled to come out next October. Bring on the creepiness. 

Noah Cyrus $12k Bottle of Tears First a Joke ... Now a Scam

9/21/2018 10:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

9:00 AM PT -- Important note for super-gullible people ... on pizzaslime.com you can actually purchase the $12k bottle, but Noah's team says you will NOT get an actual bottle and the money charged to your account WILL be refunded.

As they told us ... they NEVER thought anyone would actually click on such an absurd gag offer. 

Noah Cyrus had a funny idea for a joke ... and someone has now turned it into a scam.

Noah and her team thought it would be funny to advertise a bottle of her tears for $12,000 a pop. The idea was that she was super sad when she broke up with Lil Xan so she put an ad on Pizzaslime hawking the fake bottle of tears. It was all in fun ... a promotion for her new album, "Good Cry."

Here's the problem. Someone smelled an opportunity to screw her fans out of cash, so they put the ad on GoFundMe, saying they want to buy a bottle ... when anyone with a brain has to know it's not real.

Well ... 8 brainless folks have already contributed a total of $1,240 in just 15 hours. Mind you ... when someone donates on GoFundMe ... the money is automatically deducted from their bank account.

Noah's team is now hip to the scam, and they tell TMZ they're contacting GoFundMe, asking that the post be 86'd. They also say they will reimburse the folks who donated and will throw in backstage passes to one of Noah's shows.

P.T. Barnum was clearly right.

Kylie Jenner Handsy with BFF ... She's Turning 21 Too!!!

9/21/2018 9:09 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner brought the glamour and her BFF Jordyn Woods brought the glitz -- and together, the dynamic duo painted the town.

The ladies were all dolled up to get a head start on Jordyn's birthday celebration. She turns 21 Sunday but kicked things off Thursday with dinner at Petite in L.A. ... before heading off to Poppy. 

Kylie turned 21 over a month ago and clearly couldn't contain herself at the thought of her BFF coming THIS close to legal drinking age. They capped off their dinner with a small chocolate cake and giant sparkling candle. Nope, no cereal ... with or without milk.

Bottle service was flowin' later that night -- at least for Kylie, who held up a giant poster with Jordyn's face on it. 

They're obviously tight. Remember, Jordyn was front and center in Kylie's birth announcement and they're nearly inseparable -- except for that one time Jordyn flaunted the goods down in Mexico.

Happy turn-up!! 

Bryan Callen Bruce Wayne Has A Little Wang

9/21/2018 10:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bryan Callen thinks Batman should keep on his Batsuit ... 'cause we now know there's nothing all that special about Bruce Wayne's birthday suit.

We got Bryan at LAX and showed him DC's new adult comic with images of Batman's manhood ... and the comedian tells us the Batcave is, umm ... lacking. 

His point is, size does matter -- for superheroes -- and Bruce Wayne just ain't getting it done.

Bryan, who has a role in the upcoming "Joker" movie, explains why he thought Batman would be more gifted and tells us which comic book heroes are packing ... most likely. 

The Dark Knight's penis shows up 4 times in "Batman: Damned," and the uncensored version is only available in print editions of the adults-only comic. In the online version, DC has darkened the image, but you can check out the original here

Don't be shy, Bryan says there's nothing to fear. 

Kevin Hart to Katt Williams You Had Your Shot ... You Blew it On Drugs!!!

9/21/2018 6:59 AM PDT
Breaking News

Kevin Hart is riding hard for Tiffany Haddish ... telling Katt Williams to stop attacking her just because he blew his shot at superstardom on drugs.

Kevin lashed out at Katt Friday morning on "The Breakfast Club," telling him, "You had the shot! You were set up to be the star. You didn't show up to work! You f**ked off promo shoots!" 

Tiffany was with Kevin when he went off. You'll recall, a week ago Katt blasted Tiffany for leapfrogging over dozens of other comedians who he feels were more deserving of Hollywood fame. But, Kevin says it's time for Katt to quit bitching and take responsibility.

He called him out directly, saying, "Have you ever used your platform to f**king bring the people that were under you up? You haven't! So, because you haven't, don't s**t on those that now are!!" 

As for why Kevin thinks Katt hasn't become a huge movie star -- "He chose drugs" and that scared off the studios.

Smell that? Fresh beef on the grill.

Anwar Hadid Huge Hickey ... Hooking Up With Kendall???

9/21/2018 9:41 AM PDT

Here's Anwar Hadid just trying to keep his love life on the down-low during Milan Fashion Week and ... JUST KIDDING, LOOK AT THAT HUGE HICKEY ON HIS NECK!!!!

The young model is apparently having a great time in Italy, but the love scar has us wondering who left it there? Anwar has a long hookup history with fellow models ... and guess which famous former flame was also in Milan? Kendall Jenner!

Remember, back in the summer, Anwar and Kendall were sucking face at an after-party.   

He's definitely not trying to hide the evidence of a steamy night with someone -- so, maybe it was Kendall's handiwork ... or maybe he's just letting her know she missed out.

One thing's for sure ... Anwar's gonna need a cold spoon, 'cause that hickey's not going anywhere soon. 

Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin Lawyer Up for Prenup ... Before Tying the Knot

9/21/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin will take vows promising to love each other until death, but he's hedging his bets with a prenup ... TMZ has learned.

Sources with direct knowledge tell us, Bieber and Hailey have each lawyered up for the negotiation that is as important as it is awkward.  

There are reports Justin is not asking for a prenup because he and Hailey are both so religious they take the "til death do us part" vow literally -- that's just not true. Justin has been counseled it would be insane not to get a prenup, and he's on board. 

We're told the prenup is about to be negotiated and the couple will not get married until it's signed.

TMZ broke the story ... Justin and Hailey got a marriage license last week but did not tie the knot.

Reports of net worth are almost always wildly inaccurate, but the rough guess for the Biebs is around $250 million. Hailey is reportedly worth a couple of mil.

FYI ... the money they each bring into the marriage is their own and, unless they co-mingle their funds to the point no one can figure out who has what, it stays their separate property throughout the marriage.

Howie Mandel No Jokes From Me ... P.C. is Destroying Comedy!!!

9/21/2018 7:59 AM PDT

Howie Mandel is pissed about the state of stand-up comedy ... and he's blaming political correctness for its demise.

We got the comedian and "America's Got Talent" judge leaving Craig's Thursday night in WeHo, and he launched into a tirade about why comedy sucks now ... for comedians. Howie harkened back to legends like Richard Pryor -- who were revered for pushing the envelope -- but said anyone who tries that today runs the risk of destroying their whole career.

It's gotten so bad, Howie says he's actually afraid to crack jokes in public.

As for what made him start thinking about this ... Howie doesn't name names. But, we're thinking it could be Norm Macdonald, who dropped a down syndrome reference while trying to dig himself out of his #MeToo comments.

Dana White Putin & Trump ... You're Invited to McGregor Fight!

9/21/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dana White says he's extended an invitation to both Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump to be his VIP guests when Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov clash in Vegas next month. 

Of course, Dana is tight with POTUS and even spoke at the Republican National Convention during Trump's campaign. 

And Putin ... well, Conor recently became friends with the Russian president. And, Khabib is a Russian citizen. 

But, Dana knows they probably won't come -- acknowledging that having a world leader at a fight would be a nightmare as far as security is concerned. Instead, White says Trump has assured him he'll watch the fight on Pay-Per-View. 

We also asked White if Conor's crew of hooligans will be allowed at the fight -- considering they participated in the bus attack at Barclays Center back in April. 

Despite the violence, White says the crew is NOT banned -- and UFC is already drawing up a security plan to make sure Team Conor and Team Khabib don't clash at the event. 

One last thing ... how'd Conor's whiskey actually taste? Dana gives us our first Proper No. Twelve review -- and yeah, it doesn't suck. 

Olivia Culpo Drop. Dead. Gorg. ... at Paris Fashion Week

9/21/2018 6:41 AM PDT

Olivia Culpo might as well have shut down Paris Fashion Week ... it ain't gonna get better than this little black dress.

The former Miss Universe slipped into the little black dress of all little black dresses Thursday in Paris during fashion week. Guessing she most likely brought traffic to a standstill when she crossed the street.

The dress itself is stunning ... over the shoulder ruffles, tight and short. Add the perfect clutch, heels and bracelets and you've got the most beautiful woman in the world. Literally.

Just when you thought Olivia draped in latex from head to toe couldn't get better.
