Akon Hey Mom, Merry Early XMAS Take My Home, Please

11/23/2015 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1120_akon_Kine-Gueye-Thiam_tmz_gettyAkon already feels the holiday spirit ... he just turned over the deed to his Atlanta home to his mom.

It's a 5 bedroom pad about an hour outside of the ATL. Akon bought the home a decade ago for $293k but his digs are now much grander ... a mansion in the Atlanta burbs.

The bond between Akon and his mom goes beyond blood. They both devote a lot of time to the Konfidence Foundation, which helps kids in West Africa. She's the president/CEO. 

There might be another reason for the transfer ... Akon's got a bunch of outstanding tax liens ... so it'll be a lot harder for Uncle Sam to go after the crib.

1122-harrison-ford-pentatonix-TMZ-GETTY-01Harrison Ford is about to have a fanboy moment at the AMAs because we've learned he'll be serenaded in a "Star Wars" tribute.

We're told Ford will introduce a cappella group Pentatonix, who will perform the "Star Wars" score with a 75-piece orchestra. 

Ford wasn't the original choice but he wanted to be involved because he's a real fan of the group ... since he's Han Solo, he got his wish.

And, get this ... a new clip from "Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens" will be unveiled during the show.

11/22/2015 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1122-gavin-rossdale-flirty-girls-TMZ-01Gavin Rossdale doesn't seem to be having problems finding company after his split with Gwen, because he's back on the market with a flourish.

Gavin cleaned up real nice for a tennis charity event Saturday in Boca Raton, Florida and the ladies took notice. Sources on scene tell us he was a chick magnet all night. 

It looks like Gavin might have found a love match with a leggy blonde ... he seems to have a type.

1122-SUB-gavin-rossdale-flirty-girls-TMZ-01As for what looks like a wedding ring on his finger ... it's not.


Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez What Do You Mean? We're Not Sitting Together At The AMAs???

11/22/2015 2:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1122-justin-bieber-selena-gomez-seat-together-fun-art-02Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez could give the AMAs a ratings boost IF producers scramble to change the seating chart.

Sources on scene say the way the seating chart is configured now, Justin and Selena are not sitting side by side for Sunday night's award show.

We're told Bieber and Selena have requested to rub shoulders during the ceremony, which makes sense ... he serenaded her at a Beverly Hills bar over the weekend and then strolled with her later that night along empty Bev Hills streets.

As of this posting their place cards are sitting on chairs that are NOT side by side, but there's still time to rejigger things.

FUN FACT: The last time Jelena went to the AMAs together was in 2011.

11/22/2015 11:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1122-gwen-stefani-blake-shelton-park-facetime-kids-SPLASH-01Gwen Stefani certainly had her hands full Sunday carrying son Apollo in one hand and Blake Shelton on a FaceTime call in the other.

Stefani multi-tasked while taking her boys to the botanical gardens in Pasadena. Gwen and Blake are supposed to sit side by side at Sunday night's American Music Awards ... so he can't be too far away.

It's clear they've both only got one thing on their mind though ... each other.


Joe Manganiello to Sofia Vergara Whoooa oh oh oh Sweet Almost Wife O’Mine

11/22/2015 10:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Manganiello channeled his inner Axl Rose singing GnR's "Sweet Child O' Mine" and it earned him a big smooch from a groupie in the front row ... soon-to-be wife Sofia Vergara.

Sofia and Joe are tying the knot Sunday in Palm Beach and warmed up Saturday with a rager following their rehearsal dinner. They clearly were warming up their lips too because Sofia planted a giant one on Joe.

BTW ... Sofia and Joe's pre-wedding festivities outdid the average nuptials ... 2x Latin Grammy winner Jorge Celedon serenaded the crowd ... so the party Sunday should be pretty epic.

Jay Z had the look of defeat on his face Saturday night during the Canelo/Cotto fight.

Jay's Roc Nation manages Cotto, and it seems Jay knew the handwriting was on the wall before the judges gave Canelo the unanimous decision.  Beyonce also doesn't look amused.

1122-SUB-beyonce-jay-z-canelo-alvarez-fight-GETTY-02On the other hand, Oscar De La Hoya was pumped ... he manages Canelo.  He also won a $100k bet from Jay Z, who will ante up to the charity of Oscar's choice.  Oscar talked about the bet on TMZ Sports ... which by the way is on FS1 weekdays at midnight ET, 9 PM PT.

breaking news


Khloe Kardashian says the stress in her life was a big factor in her contracting a very dangerous infection -- staph.

It's not hard to read between the lines.  Khloe says the staph was "exacerbated by stress."  No doubt she's talking about the fact that her husband Lamar Odom was at death's door after ODing at a brothel.

Khloe believes she contracted staph at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in L.A., where Lamar has been laid up.  Cedars acknowledges it's possible to get staph at the facility but says the incidence there is lower than the national average at hospitals.

Khloe also says, "Pay attention to your bodies!!!"   Sound advice.
