NBC to Donald Trump

You're Fired!!!

6/29/2015 11:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0629-donald-trump-nbc-02Donald Trump has been fired from NBC because of his recent comments about Mexicans, but hey, business is business, so there's a catch. 

NBC just said, "Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBC Universal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump."

The network says 'Miss USA' and 'Miss Universe' will no longer air on NBC. 

As for "The Apprentice," the network notes Trump has already said he won't participate because of his presidential run.

BUT ... the network says, "Celebrity Apprentice" is a Mark Burnett production and "that relationship will continue." And guess who hosts that show? NBC did not say it would demand a different host.

As we said, business is business.

Iggy Azalea

I Don't Have to Suck Britney's A**hole

She's Why Our Song Bombed

6/29/2015 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Iggy Azalea has an excuse for everything ... and this time she's throwing stones at Britney Spears

The song "Pretty Girls" bombed hard, despite a highly publicized music video. Iggy now says it's because Britney didn't get off her ass and promote it. Here's how she put it: "Its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately im just featured."

Then Iggy goes in for the kill, saying, "My comment is factual, it applies to any song. I dont have to suck the womans a**hole 24/7 to be her friend, do i? bye girls." 

Here's the thing. Iggy never says what Britney was required to do. She also has to know ... doing promotional interviews isn't exactly Britney's strong suit ... as in she's a deer in headlights.

And the song got more promotion than most.

Waaaaa, waaaaa, waaaaaa.

Floyd Mayweather to Cops

Go Ahead, Ticket Me

'Not Like I Can't Afford It'

6/29/2015 9:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather almost got fined by police this weekend ... and he couldn't have cared less. 

The boxer and his entourage were rollin' down Hollywood Blvd. late Friday night in a caravan of expensive cars ... Floyd was driving his Bugatti, flanked by SUVs with another Bugatti and a Rolls Royce in the back. 

Our law enforcement sources tell us ... at one point during the joy ride, Floyd stopped his car in the middle of the street, stood up inside of it and played up to the cheering crowd. 

Cops approached Mayweather and told him he needed to move the car ASAP (because traffic in that area SUCKS) or else they would ticket Floyd or impound his car. 

Floyd's reply -- "It's not like I can't afford it."

BTW, he's right ... Mayweather was just listed as #1 on Forbes' highest paid celebrities list. 

But in the end, Floyd decided it was just easier to move the car ... so instead of taking the fine, he went along his way. 

Michael B. Jordan

DENIED

At Diddy BET After-Party

6/29/2015 6:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael B. Jordan, one of the biggest actors in Hollywood, learned Sunday night that the L.A. fire code carries more weight than star power.

Michael was turned away from Diddy's post-BET party at Boa because the place was at capacity.

Michael was cool about it, preparing to leave when one of Diddy's lieutenants sprinted out of the restaurant, telling him Diddy was going to personally get him in.

But the law's the law, and Jordan was turned away a second time. Diddy came to the front door to see if he could grease the wheels, to no avail.

In the end, Diddy surrendered, shook the owner's hand, and poor Michael was left alone on the Sunset Strip.

Rich Homie Quan

Bails on BET Performance

After Stage Demotion

EXCLUSIVE

0323-rich-homie-quan-tmz-2Rich Homie Quan is main stage or no stage at all ... and that's why you didn't see him at Sunday night's BET Awards.

RHQ was supposed to be on the telecast, but according to our sources ... he showed up to rehearsal Saturday and was told by producers he'd be the headlining act for the red carpet pre-show ... which did not go over well with him.  

We're told Quan was pissed, feeling totally disrespected.

Fans noticed his absence, with one tweeting, "I mean this a real nice put together BET Awards but um... 😐👀 where's Rich Homie Quan???"

2 Chainz vs. Flo Rida

My Chainz Bigger Than Yours

6/29/2015 7:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0526-2-chainz-flo-rida-splash2 Chainz and Flo Rida squared off at this weekend's BET Awards ... and one of them won by a neck.

Both showed up with giant jewel-encrusted chains ... it's debatable who's got the bigger and badder bling ... but both look like they could cover a kid's college tuition.

One thing's for sure ... sometimes one is enough ... even for 2 Chainz.

Levi Johnston

Changes His Tune

Hey Bristol, I'm Here To Help

6/29/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0627-levi-johnston-family-01

Bristol Palin just got some support from her nemesis -- the baby daddy fighting her in a nasty custody war ... former fiance, Levi Johnston.

It's a strange twist. Levi, who shares 6-year-old Tripp with Palin, tells TMZ he and wife Sunny are going to do what they can to help raise her new kid. He says she's "a great mom."

And get this ... Levi says he's sorry for Bristol's string of bad luck, specifically mentioning the fact she called off her wedding.  

Palin posted a somber announcement on her Facebook page Thursday and noted that the pregnancy was a "huge disappointment" to her and her family, but Sunday she said the pregnancy was planned.

As for the whole kid out of wedlock thing, Levi says waiting to have kids until the parents tie the knot is the way to go, but he understands things happen ... they happened to him. 

Strange words for someone fighting for custody.

Diddy

Hits the Stage

...Then His Ass

6/29/2015 3:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You can't keep Diddy down ... even when he falls into a giant hole.

It happened Sunday night during an epic Bad Boys Records tribute at the BET Awards featuring Mase, Faith Evans, Lil' Kim, and 112  ... Diddy danced over what appeared to be an elevator lift opening. He fell smack on his ass ... hard.

But the football father took it like a champ -- popping right up and finishing to a standing ovation.

Now that's what you call strength and conditioning.

Diddy seemed in good shape when he hit up BOA after the show, but wasn't into our questions about his UCLA football fight.

Pinocchio Ain’t Got Nothing On Me ...

I Got My Nose Back

6/29/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0625-ethan-schneider-tmz-01Redneck extraordinaire Ethan Schneider is lucky that chicks dig scars, cause a drunk sword trick gave him a big one after almost slicing his nose clean off.

Ethan tells TMZ  his schnoz is back on and working just fine after a bad stunt at the hands of a drunk hillbilly wielding a samurai sword.

0625-ethan-schneider-gallery-launch-imgr-014 hours of surgery and a slew of stitches later, Ethan got his sniffer back. He can smell but has no feeling  … and doctors aren't sure if it will ever come back.

That's called a good result.

0629-kris-jenner-corey-gamble-splash-02Kris Jenner took her man Corey Gamble to the Palace of Versailles in France over the weekend ... and no doubt regaled him with tales of the Kim Kardashian/Kanye West wedding.

Kris has the most epic Versailles photos ever, but she and Corey still snapped a few selfies as they walked among the common folk.

The question ... did she mention Louis XIV?

Meek Mill

When I'm On Tour

I'm Meat Mill

6/29/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-meek-mill-security-hot-wings-02
Meek Mill demands enough food to kill a cow -- literally -- when he performs with Nicki Minaj.

We got hold of his backstage concert rider, and it's pure gluttony.

-- 100 mild or lemon pepper wings 
-- 5 lbs of seasoned turkey meat
-- potato chips, cookies, Doritos
-- 2 half gallons of Simply Raspberry Lemonade

BTW ... that's just lunch. Now here's the dinner menu:

-- Fresh baked, fried or grilled fish
-- Real jerk chicken
-- Oxtails, rice and peas
-- Mixed Grill, including ribs, steak, BBQ chicken and shrimp
-- Roast turkey
-- Salmon
-- Trout
-- Mahi-Mahi
-- Snapper
-- Orange Roughy
-- Chinese Stirfry
-- Spaghetti
-- Lasagna
-- Linguine
-- Veal
-- Collard greens, veggies, red beans, rice, yams, sweet potatoes, corn on the cob, etc.

It makes a Mill thirsty, so there's
-- 7 bottles Moet Chandon
-- 3 bottles Brignac Brut God Ace of Spade
-- 5 bottles  Ciroc
-- 2 bottles Patron Silver

Meek's also concerned about security, requiring 2 police or other security on standby to whisk him out of the venue if there's trouble.

What we didn't see ... several rolls of toilet paper.

She arrived in time for transgender actress Candis Cayne's performance.

Tyga

It’s Settled ...

My Old Landlord Gets $80k

6/29/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-tyga-tmz-02Tyga ditching on a crap ton of rent payments -- nearly $100k -- is finally biting him in the ass, and if he doesn't pay up now ... it's REALLY gonna cost him.   

Tyga has a Monday deadline to fork over $80,000 to his ex-landlord in Calabasas. Both sides agreed on that amount to cover back rent payments. If you include interest ... he actually owed $124k, so the settlement is a sweet deal.

But obviously, paying on time isn't exactly Tyga's thing -- so during a hearing on Thursday ... the judge gave him a stern warning: Meet the deadline, or the landlord's gonna nail ya for the full $124,000.

Check city, bitch -- write one this weekend. Or else ...
