Kanye West Gives Fan Ultimate Chance To Join Yeezy Team

8/20/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0820-kanye-pop-up-launch-tmz-01Kanye West leaves no stone unturned when it comes to finding talent ... even if that talent is standing in line at one of  his Pablo stores. 

Yeezy's opened up 21 shops across the globe sporting his Pablo collection this weekend ... and Cesar Martinez was one of the first in line at the L.A. stop. Lucky for him, Scooter Braun stopped by the shop just as he was on the phone with Kanye, who asked to speak with someone in line ... Cesar was the lucky fan.

Martinez tells us he's a designer and let 'Ye know it, asking for a chance to show him some of his work. Lucky for Cesar, Kanye obliged ... and we're told he's setting up a time to take a look at his designs.

Not only that -- Martinez also scored some tickets to Kanye's upcoming tour -- not a bad day.


Columbus Short I'm Havin' A Baby AND Gettin' Hitched

8/20/2016 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0820-columbus-short-aida-abramyan-twitter-01Columbus Short has some BIG things about to happen in his life ... he's gonna be a husband AND a new dad.

Short tells TMZ in just 5 months, he and new fiance Aida Abramyan are expecting a boy. Columbus says he and Aida have been on and off for years but he just recently popped the question. We're told the two plan on getting married some time before January before the baby is born.

As for a name for their kid ... Short says they've got one picked out ... but they're gonna keep it under wraps. 


Mel Gibson I'm Paying Oksana More ... to Get Outta Dodge

8/20/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819-mel-gibson-Oksana-TMZ-02Mel Gibson just agreed to pay baby mama Oksana Grigorieva 50% more than she was getting last month, but the trade-off is that she has to skedaddle from his home.

We've learned Mel and Oksana have been squabbling over child support for 6-year-old Lucia. Oksana was pulling in $20k a month but wanted a small increase -- to $100k a month!

We're told they went back and forth and struck a deal. Mel is now paying Oksana a skosh under $30k a month. But in return Oksana agreed to vacate Mel's $2.4 million rental home in Sherman Oaks. We're told she's rented a pad in Malibu.

It's pretty amazing. TMZ broke the story, Mel was willing to pay Oksana $15 MILLION to settle their child support and alleged domestic violence cases -- provided she keeps those incendiary, racist tapes secret. After signing the agreement, Oksana disavowed it and went for more.

She ended up with a $250,00 settlement.

And file this under glass half full ... Oksana had 50 lawyers in her epic battle with Mel, so her latest -- Brian Kramer -- settled and got her a 50% increase, which is better than the scores of lawyers did before him.

Guns N' Roses Models Still Dig Us Because We Asked Them To

8/20/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819-guns-n-roses-splashGuns N' Roses knows what matters most when you're playing in L.A. ain't your instruments -- it's how attractive your audience is, and they made sure to stock their show with hordes of hot models.

TMZ has learned the GNR team fired off an email to Photogenics -- an L.A.-based modeling agency -- inviting every female model on their roster to Friday's show at Dodger Stadium.

We're told the 50 or so models who accepted got hooked up with free seats in the first couple rows, backstage passes and a spot on the guest list at the Roosevelt Hotel after-party.

There's only one rule: no boyfriends or non-models allowed. The invite strictly forbids +1s.

Translation: Leave your ugly friends at home.


WWE Superstar Eva Marie Adderall Prescription At Root of Suspension

8/19/2016 6:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819-eva-marie-instagramThe banned substance that triggered a WWE wellness policy violation for Eva Marie is Adderall, but we're told Eva is adamant she had a prescription, and will appeal the punishment. 

As we previously reported, Marie was hit with a 30 day suspension this week for allegedly violating the policy -- which covers everything from substance abuse to annual physicals and cardiovascular health. 

Our WWE sources tell us ... all performers are REQUIRED to disclose all medication to WWE officials for company approval.

We're told in Eva's case ... the WWE claims the medication was NOT properly approved, thus the violation

Sources connected to Eva say she claims she has a legit prescription from her doctor. 

We reached out to Eva, and she said ... “I am disappointed that this suspension has occurred, yet understand and respect that WWE upholds their Wellness Policy to the letter and won't compromise on its integrity."

She added, "I violated policy by not turning in portions of required paperwork in the time frame WWE Medical deemed timely. I look forward to my return!”

Justin Bieber It's Tough Losing A Pal, So The Tab's On Me

8/20/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819-justin-bieber-getty-tmz-01Justin Bieber shelled out a few hundred bucks to cover the bar bill of a grieving group of strangers.

The Biebs was a few drinks in at Residuals Tavern in Studio City Tuesday when he noticed customers at a nearby table crying. Justin asked the bartender what was up, and he heard the saddest story.

One of the regulars at the bar -- a guy named JD who was in his late 20s -- had tragically died earlier that day when he fell from his fire escape.

Bieber was moved so he paid their tab, which came to a few hundred bucks.

And, no, it didn't end up on Instagram.

0819-caitlyn-jenner-charity-buzz-golf-GETTY-01Caitlyn Jenner's offering anyone -- man or woman -- a chance to play golf with her, but your money's gotta be right.

Caitlyn's putting her golf skills up for bid through the celebrity auction site Charitybuzz. The highest bidder will get a private round of golf with her in L.A. -- a great opportunity if golf's your thing.

Remember, Caitlyn's a longtime member at the exclusive Sherwood Country Club, and even golfs with pros from time to time. Plus, Bruce frequently donated time for charity auctions, which always went for top dollar.

Charitybuzz predicts the winning bidder this time will have to drop around $10k. We're told Caitlyn will also cover the winner's food and drink tab for the day, and she's tossing in an autographed copy of her recent SI cover.

Ante up, the auction goes live Saturday.

Corey Feldman Contacts Corey Haim's Ghost ... Haim's Mom On Warpath

8/20/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819_corey-feldman-and-corey-haim_tmz_gettyCorey Haim's mother is pissed off at Corey Feldman for claiming he talked to her dead son through a psychic because she says Feldman's the last guy on Earth Haim would want to hit up.

Feldman filmed an episode of "Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry" and a promo shows him tearing up when Henry allegedly contacts his late BFF, who died in 2010.

But Judy Haim says Feldman's crying act was just that -- bogus tears, shed only for a paycheck.

Judy says her son had distanced himself from Feldman while trying to sober up in the years before his death. She thinks Feldman continues to play up the friendship because he's desperate to be relevant.

She says she's repeatedly asked Feldman to stop talking about her son and let him rest in peace. Obviously, no dice.
