Ronda Rousey Best Wrestling Debut I've Ever Seen Says WWE Legend Jim Ross

4/23/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ronda Rousey's first wrestling match wasn't just great, it was the GREATEST OF ALL TIME -- so says WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross

Good ol' JR was at WrestleMania 34 to watch Ronda take on Stephanie McMahon and Triple H up close and personal ... and told us he's never seen anyone dominate the squared circle this fast.

"I thought Ronda Rousey's debut was the most impressive thing I've seen in pro wrestling in my 40-year career ... best debut I ever saw," JR told TMZ Sports.

JR also gave WWE mad props for pickin' up the UFC mega-star -- calling it the 2nd best hire they've ever made besides him (lol), and saying she's a "huge star" for the company.

As for Ronda ... she's been poppin' up on "Monday Night Raw" since her match at 'Mania, kickin' ass and takin' names arms. 

Lil Uzi Vert Oozing in $425k of Diamonds and Gold

4/23/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Uzi Vert's rocking a brand new house around his neck -- or at least the jewelry he's wearing could buy a nice house ...  with a pool, even. In-ground!

The rapper dropped a whopping $425k -- as in damn near half a million dollars -- on a new piece that tips the scales at about 3.5 pounds. Now y'know how much 150 carats of diamonds on a 14 karat gold Cuban link chain weighs. We're told the shark tooth he's wearing with it is something he previously owned, so we're guessing he actually has more than $500k around his neck. 

Uzi worked with Joe the Jeweler, aka Shyne, for about 2 months. You can tell he's thrilled with the end result. Sometimes all that glitters IS gold.

4/23/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scarlett Johansson's “Ghost in the Shell” was a total flop in theaters, but her costume from it is expected to have a killer opening at auction.

Several props from the film -- including the white Stage Three Thermoptic Suit ScarJo wore -- are being sold this Monday via the Prop Store. That alone is expected to fetch as much as $10k. There's also the smashed Geisha head that opens fire in the opening scene that's also expected to haul in about $10 grand. 

Roughly 400 items from the film will be auctioned through May 4, including a full-size Geisha Bot Body and the SIX12 Revolving Shotgun and Cylinder used by actor Pilou Asbaek in the flick.

Arie Luyendyk Jr. & Channing Tatum From One Bachelor to Another ... Live Life in the Fast Lane!

4/22/2018 5:11 PM PDT

Channing Tatum is single again, so it'd only make sense that he chop it up with one of the most famous bachelors to play the field ... one Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Arie and Channing were hanging out Sunday in Birmingham, Alabama for the Honda Indy Grand Prix, where Channing was serving as the grand marshal of the race ... and, apparently, also got to ride around with Arie for a few laps on the track.

The ex-'Bachelor' even filmed a video of the two of them addressed to his fiancee, Lauren Burnham, in which Channing admitted he was about to do something stupid.

As you might've heard, Arie's happily engaged now -- but that doesn't mean he couldn't have lent some advice to Channing ... who recently separated from his wife, Jenna Dewan, after nearly nine years of marriage. Our guess -- put it in the rearview, bro ... literally. 

Either way, it's telling this is Channing's first public appearance since the news of his split broke ... chillin' with a former bachelor. Everyone's moving on just fine, it seems ... even Jenna.

Belly Rapper & Bodyguard Shield Each Other While Attacked By 20 Coachella Venue Security Guards

4/22/2018 1:47 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Belly and his personal bodyguard tried desperately to protect each other during an unprovoked attack by nearly 20 members of Coachella's security team.

We've obtained another angle from Friday night's beatdown, you can see both Belly and his bodyguard trying their best to protect one another during the scuffle. Our sources say Belly was walking into the artist area during The Weeknd's set when the incident happened.

We're told Belly had all of the proper credentials to enter the section, which would make sense considering he performed at the festival earlier that day.

It's unclear exactly why Coachella venue security attacked the rapper ... the festival has yet to comment on the altercation.

Belly took to Twitter after the incident, saying, "No negative bulls**t can steal my joy" and added earlier ... "I'm great y'all. I love you." He also got a shot in at the guards who went after him, saying ... "20 of you p***ies couldn't take me off my feet."

Jay-Z Blesses Cardi B's Baby Bump ... During Bey's Coachella Set

4/22/2018 1:36 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jay-Z appeared to give Cardi B and her forthcoming baby his blessing this weekend during round 2 of Beyonce's Coachella set ... a belly rub and prayer hands says as much, anyway.

Jay was spotted getting up close and personal with Cardi in the artist section early Sunday morning around 12:45 AM, after he'd performed a duet with his wife on stage. 

He affectionately grabs her arms and then places his hands on top of her ever-growing baby bump. Cardi was seated during the interaction -- ya know, 'cause she super pregnant ... AND about to perform for the second weekend in a row BTW. Girl needs her rest.

Oh ... Jay and Bey's daughter, Blue Ivy, was there too. She was watching her mom do her thing, but might've drawn a little attention herself with those stylish frames. 

Tekashi69 Crew Member Allegedly Fired Gun During Adrien Broner Fight

4/22/2018 12:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Someone in Tekashi69's crew allegedly fired a gun inside the Barclays Center this weekend, but it had nothing to do with Adrien Broner ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops believe an unidentified member of Tekashi's entourage fired a shot inside Barclays Saturday night during an altercation with a rival rap crew headed by Brooklyn-based MC Casanova, who Tekashi's been beefing with online.

We're told police understand the situation as follows ... Tekashi and his guys were heading down a hallway in Barclays to hit up a VIP area in the arena, when they bumped into Casanova and co. along the way. The two crews started pushing and shoving ... and someone in Tekashi's group allegedly discharged one round from a firearm.

Sources tell us a .32 caliber shell casing was recovered afterward, but it was not processed after it was touched by arena staff. We're told no one was hit by the shot, and both crews dispersed ... with Casanova and his pals fleeing the grounds entirely. 

Tekashi and his crew stuck around, though, and they were all interviewed by investigators. Our police sources tell us no one in the group was found to have a weapon on them, however, and nobody was arrested. We're told cops think the man who fired fled the scene.

The silver lining -- if there is any -- is that this apparently had nothing to do with the ongoing beef between Tekashi and Broner, who were talking s*** to each other on social media in the week leading up to the fight. 

Adrien did take a verbal shot at Tekashi after his match against Jessie Vargas was declared a draw ... but it sounds like Tekashi was preoccupied trying to avoid a real shot just outside.

Cops are investigating the matter for further information.

Ex-NFL Kicker Jay Feely Gun in Daughter's Prom Pic Was a Damn Joke!

4/22/2018 11:52 AM PDT

Former NFL kicker Jay Feely is clearing up the controversy around a photo he posted with a gun at his daughter's prom date's side ... saying it was all a joke.

Feely tweeted a clarification Sunday about a pic he posted Saturday as he sent his daughter to her prom with a guy ... with Jay in between them and a pistol in his hand.

He says the pics was clearly meant as a joke, and that his kid had been dating the dude for at least a year. Feely also pointed out that the gun wasn't loaded and didn't have a clip inside, adding he didn't mean to be insensitive about the subject, which is a hot topic these days.

In his original post, Feely referenced a scene from "Bad Boys 2," in which Martin Lawrence's character intimidates a guy who comes over to take his daughter out on a date. Will Smith gets in on the interrogation, too, for a hilarious moment ... but a lot of folks didn't find Feely's take quite as funny. He was getting dragged on social media left and right.

Who knew joking around with guns would be such a lightning rod issue?

Tiffany Haddish Rails on TMZ You Left Me Holding the Bag!!!

4/22/2018 11:09 AM PDT

Tiffany Haddish has beef with TMZ.

Our photog spotted Tiffany and her friends Sunday at LAX and apparently watched as she loaded up a slew of bags into an SUV.  Once the bags were in the back, we started asking questions.

Tiffany wasn't playing ball, and she's now furious at the lack of chivalry.  

Truth is ... our camera guy was just doing his job -- which doesn't include loading luggage --  but there's always room to lend a helping hand.

Sorry Tiff ... but just one more thing -- where was the Skycap?

Beyonce Slays at Coachella Week 2 With Surprise Guest J Balvin

4/22/2018 6:52 AM PDT

Beyonce did not disappoint at Coachella week 2 ... it was as good as week 1, with a bonus.

Bey brought out a surprise guest ... J Balvin, who performed "Mi Gente."

The set list was basically the same as week 1, but there were new celebs in the audience, including Jessica Alba and Vanessa Hudgens.

Beyonce and sister Solange had a dance-off ... a definite fan favorite.

The biggest difference from week 1 ... 4 new outfit changes and this time all the backup dancers changed from yellow to pink. Destiny's Child, Solange and Jay Z all changed it up in the wardrobe department from week 1.

The jury has pretty clearly spoken ... one of the great performances at the festival in its 19-year history.
