Ariana Grande

Big Sean's 'Billion Dollar P***y' Lyric

The Final Straw

4/24/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande Big Sean Broke Up Ariana Grande has a big problem with boyfriends screaming from the mountaintops that she has a priceless p***y ... which is why she says she called it quits with Big Sean.

Sources connected with Ariana tell us ... the last straw was when Sean dropped his track, "Stay Down," in which he raps:

I ain't even gonna lie, I got a million dollar chick
With a billion dollar p****y
Every time I c*m, I swear to God I feel like I be rich

We're told Ariana felt humiliated because Sean was treating her like a piece of meat. Ariana's grandmother came to her and asked about the lyrics, which was especially embarrassing.

But there was plenty of tension leading up to the song. Sean claims she made him pay for all sorts of extravagances. But our Ariana sources say SHE is the one who foot most of the bills, including vacations and private flights.

As we reported, Sean complained that Ariana didn't show up for his big House of Blues performance in February because she selfishly cared more about her Grammy's performance the following day.  

But our Ariana sources say it was Sean who was self-absorbed. Ariana's Grammy performance was live and during the day on Saturday when she rehearsed her voice was strained and her vocal coach ordered her not to even speak for the rest of the day, and Sean got pissed.

As for Sean saying Ariana set up the Bieber stage grab to humiliate her, Ariana says it's total B.S. ... they were already broken up and she did NOT ask Bieber to engage in a stunt.  And she says Sean never even brought it up.

Mum's the Word On Bruce's Special

In the Midst of Insanity

4/24/2015 6:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Kardashian klan is saying nothing about Bruce Jenner's special which airs tonight, and they chose to say nothing at a place known for the highest concentration of paparazzi in L.A. 

Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall and Scott all showed up at Craig's in West Hollywood, arguably the most popular restaurant in the city.

All the photogs asked about the special but lips were glossed and sealed.

Kim and Kanye didn't join.  

One thing's for sure ... this family knows how to do what they do.

Tyga

Takes High Road

After Blac Chyna Claims He Wants Her Back

4/24/2015 6:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0423_blac_chyna_tyga_texts-tmzWe expected Tyga to go on a profanity-laced tirade after his ex, Blac Chyna put his texts to her on Instagram for the world to see -- but instead he's taking a low-key approach ... at least for now.

Blac Chyna posting the texts was her going nuclear in her war with Kylie Jenner -- but Tyga is clearly a casualty too. In the messages, Tyga (who is apparently "Kings Father" in BC's phone) begs, "Can I just come for a lil. Just us 3. Do something or spend a lil time."

The direct shot at Kylie comes when he allegedly tells BC he wants "to be a family again" -- and adds, "Want to start this friendship. Relationship."

Tyga responded early Friday morning, writing, "Focus on what's real in life. And surround yourself with people that you really care about.its simple."

Not sure how long cooler heads will prevail in this mess.

'Iron Man'

One Good Suit Deserves Another

4/24/2015 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Iron Man Suit Stole Design
Robert Downey, Jr.
's  "Iron Man" suit was a shameless copy, kind of like a designer ripping off a Vera Wang wedding dress ... so claim 2 guys who now say Marvel and Disney jacked their suit. 

Artists Ben and Ray Lai claim in a new lawsuit they came up with a design in 2001 depicting a "futuristic, armored, and weaponized" body suit and featured it in their "Radix" comic book.

The following year they say Marvel hired them to work on various comics.  

The Lai's point out ... the original "Iron Man" suits from the comics -- created in 1963 -- were simple spandex that had minimal armor. But fast forward to 2008, when the first "Iron Man" movie was released ... they say Robert Downey. Jr.'s suit was a dead ringer for theirs.

And they say to add insult to injury, Marvel used almost the exact same pose from their book for the "Iron Man" 2 and 3 posters.

They're suing Marvel, Disney and others ... and they want all profits attributable to their design.

Vine Star Nash Grier

NoH8 Forgives Homophobic Rant

Internet Says Not So Fast

4/24/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0423-nash-grier-noh8Vine superstar Nash Grier can pose for all the NoH8 campaign photos he wants -- his critics aren't willing to forgive ... even if the LGBT group is.

Grier posted a pic of himself at a photo shoot for the famous equal rights advocacy group on Wednesday night. Grier and NoH8 immediately got blasted on the Internet by thousands of people still fuming over the 17-year-old's rant last summer. 

In case you forgot ... Grier posted a Vine in which he shouted "f**s" and called AIDS a "gay disease." He eventually deleted it and said he was sorry.

NoH8 founder Jeff Parshley tells TMZ he accepted the apology, and isn't prepared to say Grier is homophobic based on his Vine performance. As for the backlash, he says Grier's just gonna have to deal.

Neil McNeil -- a huge YouTuber who focuses on LGBT issues -- didn't buy Grier's mea culpa and still isn't convinced he's changed. He suggests the Viner donate real time to support the LGBT cause, instead of posing for pics

Mark Wahlberg

Applauds Tom Brady's Obama Snub ...

And Hands Hundo to Homeless Guy!

4/24/2015 12:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Wahlberg always has time to help a brother out -- whether it's Tom Brady, or the homeless guy who gets caught in a swarm of photogs -- and his generosity was on full display in Bev Hills.  

After Mark and his entourage had lunch at E. Baldi on Thursday ... he was making his way to his ride when he handed a C-note to a guy in a wheelchair without missing a beat or making a big deal about it.

It's as smooth and solid a move as we've ever seen a celeb make.

Bonus: Mark sounds off about the QB of his beloved Patriots skipping the team's White House trip. His take -- heartwarming ... and a little cocky. 

Wicked awesome.

Joe Manganiello

Dumps Ballin' Bachelor Pad

Moving in with Sofia?

4/24/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Joe Manganiello HomeSofia Vergara's fiance, Joe Manganiello, may be ready to have his chick, her infamous eggs and himself all under one roof ... because he's unloading his awesome Sunset Strip pad.

Our real estate sources say Joe moved out to sell his swank 2,500 sq. ft. 4bed/3bath digs. Asking price ... a cool $2 mil, but the big question is whether he's bailing on his oasis -- hot tub and pool included -- to say hola to a place with his woman.

He snagged it for $1.8 MIL back in 2013 ... so it's not like he's gonna make a ton o' cash off the sale. Plus, no one would be shocked if he was in a rush to get in more Sofia time.

But she better have a hot tub.

So Tight With Beyonce & Jay Z ...

He's Already Plugging 'Em

4/23/2015 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tina Knowles' hubby, Richard Lawson, is all about his new stepkids Beyonce and Jay Z -- and to prove his loyalty he put in some work for one of their flailing business ventures.

TMZ broke the story ... Richard and Tina tied the knot a couple weeks ago -- and Wednesday in L.A. he said their families are totally bonding already ... partly, he says because he and Tina have been tight for decades.

But you gotta see papa-in-law go into pitch mode when the photog brings up Tidal -- Jay Z's music streaming service. Sales of the app have plummeted, but you'd never know it from Richard's enthusiasm. 

Watch ... someone just guaranteed himself a Jay & Bey Christmas card.
