5/21/2018 4:48 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Diddy's adopted son says his father isn't just dabbling in high-priced art ... the music/tv/fashion/liquor mogul is diving headfirst into the art world. 

We got Quincy Brown -- whose biological father is Al B. Sure! -- at LAX Monday, and asked what he thought of Puff dropping $21.1 million on Kerry James Marshall’s '97 painting, “Past Times," during a Sotheby's auction last week. 

Quincy says this is the next logical step for his old man, seeing as how he's conquered just about everything else. The fact he dropped serious cheddar for the piece should tell you Papa ain't playing around, according to his son. 

We also ask if Diddy's gonna start his own Getty Museum ... take a guess.

R. Kelly Sued for Sexual Assault ... He Locked Me Up, Gave Me Herpes

5/21/2018 2:25 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly is being sued for sexual assault by a woman who claims he held her against her will and abused her ... TMZ has learned.

A woman named Faith Rodgers filed the lawsuit in NYC, and claims they met in March 2017, when she was 19 ... after a performance in San Antonio. In the suit, she says a couple months later Kelly flew her to NYC for one of his concerts.

After the show, she says Kelly "bombarded" her hotel room and initiated "unwanted sexual contact" ... including oral and vaginal intercourse. After what she calls "abusive sex" ... Kelly allegedly criticized her for being boring in bed.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Faith caught herpes from Kelly. She says they dated for about one year, during which he mentally, verbally and sexually abused her. Faith claims he locked her in rooms, studios and cars to punish her for failing to fulfill his sexual desires. In the suit, Faith says Kelly had a female assistant stand guard to make sure she didn't flee. 

Faith's attorney tells us she is the woman who secretly recorded Kelly. TMZ broke the story ... she recently recorded a phone conversation, attempting to coax a confession out of him.

She is suing Kelly for sexual battery, false imprisonment and failure to disclose an STD.

Rep. Steve Scalise Blames Texas School Shooting on Not Enough Religion

5/21/2018 3:52 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

GOP House Whip Steve Scalise says maybe if there was more faith, religion and God in schools across America the mass shooting at a Texas high school last week could've been prevented.

The congressman was at Reagan National Airport on Monday and we wanted to get his thoughts on how kids, teachers and parents can cope with last week's horrific act that resulted in 8 students and 2 teachers killed at Santa Fe High School. Scalise, of course, fought for his life last year after getting shot when a gunman opened fire at a congressional baseball team practice ... so who better to ask?

But, when our guy asks what more besides prayer can be done to prevent such a tragedy ... Scalise doubles down on more prayer.

Jada Pinkett Smith I'm Losing My Hair ... And I'm Okay With It

5/21/2018 3:55 PM PDT

Jada Pinkett Smith is coming to terms with a big part of her identity that's fading away -- her hair.

Jada made the revelation Monday, saying alopecia was causing significant hair loss. She says her balding is the reason she's been wearing so many turbans in public lately.

The moment she realized her hair was going sounds pretty frightening. On her Facebook show, "Red Table Talk" ... Jada said she was in the shower one day, and noticed handfuls of hair coming out. She said she was "literally shaking with fear." Now, she says she keeps her hair short, and plans to keep it that way. 

Jada says doctors and specialists have not been able to diagnose what's causing the hair loss, but she adds ... her friends think it's stress.

On a positive note, she explains that out of all the things that "higher power" takes away from people in life, she's happy to offer up her hair.

Well said, Jada. Perspective is everything.   

Lance Bass Shaq Helped Launch 'NSYNC ... Seriously!

5/21/2018 4:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Who was one of the key people who helped get 'NSYNC off the ground??

IT'S GOTTA BE SHAQ!!

It's true ... according to Lance Bass who tells TMZ Sports the supergroup owes a lot of its early success to the NBA legend. 

"I mean ... a lot of people don't know Shaquille had a big hand in starting our career," Lance said at the Montage Hotel in Bev Hills. 

We only brought up Shaq because Google search is showing Shaq as the 5th member of the group -- replacing Joey Fatone

It's obviously a glitch ... but Lance says Shaq's connection to the band is 100% real. 

"We lived in Orlando and our first place that we recorded was his house ... so all of our first demos, our first songs were all from Shaq's house!" 

It's true ... Shaq has a recording studio in his massive Orlando estate -- which is now on the market for $28 MILLION -- and Lance says O'Neal let the group record because he knew someone at the label. 

One thing led to another ... and 'NSYNC became a global phenomenon. 

Now, Lance says he'd love for Shaq to join the group in real life ... as soon as they get rid of that one member "we probably need to replace."

Rose McGowan Hires Attorney Jose Baez ... In Cocaine Possession Case

5/21/2018 2:32 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rose McGowan just lawyered up big-time in her cocaine possession case ... we've learned she's hired Jose Baez ... the attorney who won acquittals for Casey Anthony and Aaron Hernandez in his double murder case.

McGowan was charged with felony cocaine possession after cops say they found a few small bags of coke in a wallet she had left behind at Washington Dulles International Airport back in January.

McGowan and her previous lawyer had said she was framed, because 5 hours passed between the time she got off the plane and the cleaning crew found the wallet. What's more, McGowan's previous lawyer suggested Harvey Weinstein might be behind it all out of revenge.

Baez tells TMZ, "I think she's absolutely 100% innocent in this case and we're looking forward to showing that in a court of law." He added, "She's absolutely 100% determined to clear her name."

Marco Rubio Defends Colin Kaepernick ... Belongs In the NFL

5/21/2018 3:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sen. Marco Rubio is once again breaking from Donald Trump ... defending Colin Kaepernick's right to protest and telling TMZ Sports why he absolutely SHOULD be on an NFL roster. 

"Look, I support his right to stand for what he does," the republican senator tells us ... "I don't agree with what he did but I support his right to do it." 

"But if we're just talking football ... there aren't 63 better quarterbacks in the world."

FYI, Rubio is assuming there are 64 quarterbacks currently on NFL rosters. 

Rubio said he's not sure if the NFL owners actually colluded against Colin, as Kaep is alleging in his case against the league ... but he certainly believes Colin has the talent to play with the best in the world. 

Obviously, Donald Trump feels MUCH differently ... repeatedly saying players who don't stand for the national anthem should be fired. 

'X Factor' Winner James Arthur Sued 'Say You Won't' Steal My Song!

5/21/2018 2:16 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

British musician James Arthur straight-up jacked another band's song and twisted it into his own hit ... according to a new lawsuit.

Arthur has been sued by musician Daniel O'Donoghue, who's got a song with his band, The Script, called "The Man Who Can't Be Moved," which he claims Arthur ripped off in making his own song, "Say You Won't Let Go." The former dropped in 2008, and the latter in 2016.

O'Donoghue says Arthur used a very similar melody and tempo in his song, and claims it's infringing on his original work. O'Donoghue says Arthur approached him and his band after Arthur was dropped by his label in 2014, trying to talk ideas for a comeback song. He says they denied the meeting, and somehow Arthur came out with "Say You Won't Let Go" 2 years later.

Interestingly enough, both men have ties to British talent shows -- O'Donoghue's a voice coach on the UK's 'The Voice,' and Arthur won the UK's 'X Factor' in 2012.

Take a listen for your self. 

Jeffrey Tambor Down for More 'Arrested Development' ... If They'll Have Him

5/21/2018 1:19 PM PDT

Jeffrey Tambor's unapologetic when it comes to lobbying for more work on "Arrested Development" ... sexual misconduct allegations be damned.

We got Jeffrey out Monday in NYC, and wanted to know if he's up for being on 'AD' for season 6? ICYMI ... Jeffrey showed up to the season 5 premiere last week alongside the 'Arrested' cast, which stands by him despite allegations he sexually harassed his assistant and a "Transparent" costar. Amazon fired him from "Transparent" in February, though he says he quit and denied the allegations.

'Arrested' creator Mitch Hurwitz reportedly said last week he stuck with Tambor for season 5 because the Netflix show had already been filmed when allegations first surfaced. That aside, Hurwitz said he wasn't gonna cut Tambor based purely on allegations.

For his part, Tambor told us the vibe on set is great ... so, if they're game, so is he.

Kendrick Lamar shut down his concert after a white fan he invited onstage decided it was cool for her to repeatedly rap the n-word. It was not. 

K. Dot was performing Sunday night at Hangout Festival in Alabama when he pulled the young woman named Delaney from the crowd to rap "M.A.A.D City."

Delany promised she knew all the words, n-word included ... and after dropping it 3 times ... Kendrick had to stop everything. She was clueless at first, responding, "Am I not cool enough for you?"

The crowd started booing and Kendrick was shocked, and told her she needed to bleep one word. Delaney was apologetic, and the show continued. Kendrick was forgiving, but the crowd was not.

Prince Woman Thinks She's His Daughter ... Makes Claim to Estate

5/21/2018 11:51 AM PDT

Prince might've had a biological daughter who was never looped in on what would happen with the late singer's estate ... so claims a woman in new legal docs.

The woman in question, Snowe Melinda Saxman, filed paperwork in a Minnesota court -- obtained by TMZ -- in which she says she believes she's Prince's birth daughter ... but her evidence is pretty thin.

Saxman says she was adopted, and never knew her real parents -- but, based on her "substantial physical, temperamental and aspirational similarities to Prince" ... she has reason to believe she's his actual kid. She also claims she looks like Prince, and has musical prowess like her father. As she puts it ... she's "very artsy" and a "natural-born star."

There's more ... Saxman goes on to say she recently did a background check of herself through a company called Family Tree DNA, which she claims shows she's matched up genetics-wise with numerous people in Prince's family tree, including John Lewis Nelson, Mattie Della Baker, and others. She says she didn't match with Prince directly 'cause his DNA's not in the system.

She says she was never notified about any proceedings in Prince's probate case, which some of his heirs claim is burning cash like crazy managing the singer's posthumous affairs. Sounds like she wants to get in on the Estate ... and stake a claim to what's left behind.
