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?

4/22/2018 9:57 AM PDT

Kourtney Kardashian celebrated big the year before her big 4-0 ... at the happiest place on earth.

The 39-year-old and her extended brood hit up Disneyland Saturday.  Boyfriend Younes Bendjima, Kris Jenner, Corey Gamble, Mason and Penelope jumped on ride after ride and all clearly had a blast.

No sign of Kim, Kylie or KendallKhloe is still in Cleveland, although next week could provide telltale clues on whether she and Tristan Thompson are history ... if she flies back to L.A. with daughter True.

Not quite as many celebs who took in Coachella week 2, but there were still plenty.

Check out our gallery ... lots of people came to watch Beyonce, including Marilyn Manson, David Byrne, Tinashe, Tyler the Creator, Tash Sultana, Jamie Foxx, Nile Rodgers and Borns.

Beyonce's performance was awesome as usual, and this time she brought out J Balvin who performed "Mi Gente."

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.

Mally Mall Coachella's Gonna Get Sued Over Belly Beatdown

4/22/2018 7:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mally Mall says the folks who run Coachella better lawyer up quick ... 'cause they're asses are about to get sued over the brutalization of Belly.

We got the producer Saturday night at Lucky Strike bowling alley in Hollywood and he doesn't need more information ... he says the video is enough proof to trigger a lawsuit. 

As we reported, Belly was in the crowd at The Weeknd's performance during Coachella week 1 when around 10 security guys started pummeling him.   It's unclear if Belly was injured. 

We had reached out to the folks at Coachella to find out what Belly had done, but got no response.

Belly had performed earlier in the day ... as a matter of fact, he posted that it was the best performance of his life, adding, "No negative bulls*** can steal my joy."

If Mally Mall's right, a little Coachella cash could add to Belly's joy.

Adrien Broner Won't Accept Draw Against Vargas ... Slams Tekashi69, Too

4/22/2018 10:33 AM PDT

Adrien Broner wouldn't let the judges in his boxing match against Jessie Vargas declare a draw without giving them a piece of his mind ... and not without bashing Tekashi69 either.

Adrien's fight against Vargars Saturday night was announced as a tie after 12 rounds of going at it -- which Adrien seemed disappointed with at first ... and then downright defiant.

The former world champ tried grabbing from announcer Jim Gray to give his two cents on the decision -- Gray wasn't having any of that, though. Adrien did speak his peace, though ... telling Vargas that he clearly beat his ass ... and that his 6ix9ine-looking face proved it.

As we've reported ... Broner and Tekashi have been trading barbs in the week leading up to his fight against Vargas. Broner even threw down a $300k check to counter Tekashi's hypothetical bet that he'd lose this weekend. 

Considering how things turned out  in the end ... we're guessing he's glad he didn't actually go all in on himself.

Prince Poetry & Photos Poised for Release Under Paisley Park Umbrella

4/22/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Prince's vast collection of unreleased music isn't the only way his estate will reap money for years to come -- turns out his words, as in poetry and lyrics, could also be gold.

Paisley Park Enterprises -- the merchandising arm of Prince's estate -- has filed paperwork to produce printed content. According to the docs, it will include collector's books of his handwritten lyrics as well as poetry. Prince's never-before-released photos and journals could also be flipped for a profit.

It's great news for fans eager to celebrate Prince's life as Saturday marks the 2nd anniversary of his death. The only bad news ... no word on when PPE will start publishing the material.

As we reported ... cops released video Thursday that was shot inside Prince's home the day they found him dead. Their 2-year investigation determined there was not enough evidence to bring criminal charges in his death.

Photos were also released inside his legendary vault containing shelves upon shelves of recordings ... many unreleased ... which we know the estate wants to release eventually.

The vault also stored tons of recording equipment, and large sums of cash.

'American Idol' Star Ada Vox I'm Here to Win ... Can I Get Some Love From My Idols?

4/22/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"American Idol" star and fan favorite Ada Vox has made her way to the spotlight ... and she hopes a couple legends in the drag queen world have noticed.

We talked to Ada -- the stage persona of Adam Sanders, who's currently killing it on the first season of the 'AI' reboot on ABC -- about her journey and mindset going forward in the competition. She tells us because Adam tried and failed in the past to get where Ada has ... it's a no-brainer to keep it up with her -- she's the entertainer of the 2.

Ada also says it would be amazing if RuPaul would shout her out ... even more so if she got Cher's attention.  

Ada performed last week on 'Idol' with Lea Michele, and really made fans -- along with the judges -- believe she could win with her performance. And there's no doubt she believes in herself.

Interesting note -- Ada auditioned for the show 12 times before, as Adam, and was eliminated during Hollywood Week of season 12. But, the drag queen came out for the latest audition ... and the 13th time was the charm.

Lindsey Vonn Women Will Compete vs. Men ... 'No One Likes Change'

4/22/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lindsey Vonn says women competing against men in sports like skiing is a matter of WHEN, not if ... and it would've happened already if people weren't so opposed to change. 

Lindsey -- arguably the GOAT female skier -- has been pushing to race with the bros for years ... but the International Ski Federation still hasn't signed off. 

The Olympic gold medalist admits it may not happen during her career ... but says she's hopeful the old heads will eventually get it right.

"No one likes change, you know?" Vonn told TMZ Sports. "It’ll eventually happen -- it’s just, how long will it take?"

Don't worry -- we didn't forget to ask Lindsey about her, shall we say, unique dress at the ACM Awards ... and you could tell she ain't sweatin' the haters even a little. 

Travis Barker Music Fest is Totally Family Friendly ... Breastfeeding Station Too!!

4/22/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Barker doesn't think there should be an age limit for rocking out, so he's throwing what could possibly be the most kid-friendly music festival ever, complete with a breastfeeding area for new moms.

Barker's Back to the Beach Fest is going down next weekend in Huntington State Beach in Southern California. Headliners include 311, Sublime With Rome, as well as the original Fishbone lineup, Barker playing with Goldfinger and loads more.

Kids under 10 get in free, which isn't unusual for music festivals, but BTTB doesn't want to exclude anyone, so they're setting up a special quiet zone for nursing moms.

That's not all ... there will also be a Lil Punk Zone where kids can rock out safely. We're told Barker got the inspiration from taking his own kids on the road everywhere and wanted other families to see what it's like to rock out with their little ones. All those diapers should also keep the porta potty lines down, too.

'The Four' Star Zhavia I Lost The Show ... But, I'll Still Make Millions!!

4/22/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Zhavia Ward is going to be the next big thing -- at least that's what her new record company is banking -- cuz they just signed her to a potentially multi-million dollar deal.

The 17-year-old fan favorite of 'The Four' didn't win FOX's singing competition, but it's all good ... Sony's Columbia Records scooped her up instead.

According to her contract -- obtained by TMZ -- Zhavia gets a $700k advance on her first album ... along with 18% royalties. If the record's a hit as expected, she'll get another $750k for album #2 ... and haul in up to $1.875 mil with royalties.

Zhavia's 3rd and 4th albums guarantee her another $100k raise each ... with the potential to make well over $2 million per album with royalties.

Not too shabby for a teenager who didn't win -- or even finish as the runner-up -- on 'The Four.'
