Wyclef Jean

Fires Trump As a Friend ...

F**k Him for Mexico Rant

6/26/2015 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

Wyclef Jean ripped his old pal Donald Trump for attacking Mexican immigrants ... by dropping an f-bomb on him during a concert.

The ex-Fugees rapper was in Pomona, CA Thursday night when he went off on Trump ... referencing the Presidential nominee's comment that most Mexicans are rapists and drug dealers. Clef's attack was short, sweet, and very telling. 

He had appeared on "Celebrity Apprentice" ... doing a guest spot in the boardroom once, and also played a corporate gig for Trump.

But watch this vid -- there'll be one less holiday card for both men to send this year.

President Obama

Solos On

'Amazing Grace'

6/26/2015 1:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

President Obama really knows how to punctuate an emotional moment -- he belted out "Amazing Grace" ... all by himself during a funeral for one of the Charleston church shooting victims. 

The Prez delivered the eulogy for Rev. Clementa Pinckney -- the South Carolina state senator who was gunned down last week ... and as he closed he talked about the call by many to stop flying the Confederate Flag.

He said removing the flag would be an expression of "God's grace" -- smoothly transitioning to the opening lines of "Amazing Grace." Everyone in the arena eventually joined B.O. in song.

Well played, Mr. President.

Donald Trump

Univision Employees Will Be Stopped at the Border

... Of My Golf Club

Donald Trump wants a wall erected -- not at the U.S./Mexican border -- at his fancy Miami golf course, and he's making anyone working for Univision persona non grata.

Trump wrote a letter to the Prez of Univision, saying "Please be advised that under no circumstances is any officer or representative of Univision allowed to use TRUMP NATIONAL DORAL, MIAMI -- its golf courses or any of its facilities."

The Donald also included instructions to "stop work and close the gate" that is being built between the neighboring properties.

Trump is amping up his attack against Univision after the network pulled the plug on his Miss USA pageant. TMZ broke the story, Trump plans to sue the network for hundreds of millions of dollars, claiming the 5-year-deal was iron-clad.

Trump ended his letter by promising if he's elected president he'll erect a "meaningful border ... not the laughing stock that it currently is."

Mariah Carey

I'm One Of The Poorest People

In The Room

EXCLUSIVE

0626-mariah-carey-james-packer-rich-crew-tmz-01Mariah Carey is used to being the top diva at the table but after a power lunch with a bunch of billionaires she had to take a back seat ... financially. 

Mariah finally got off the yacht and grabbed a bite with her new Australian beau, James Packer, and a few of his billionaire mates.

Yeah Mariah is worth $500 mil but that’s pennies compared to her dinner company: James Packer $4.6 bil, Kerry Stokes $1.26 bil, and top dog Ron Perelman $14.7 bil.

At least Mariah wasn’t at the bottom of the financially stacked list ... her pal, Brett Ratner was also there and he’s only worth $65 mil … he’ll only have to worry about leaving the tip.

1975 Singer Matthew Healy

Ripping Bong Hits

With Fans On Sidewalk!!

6/26/2015 9:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Matthew Healy got an offer he could not refuse outside a restaurant -- a massive bong, packed and ready to go .. so he wasted no time, and immediately lit up for all to see.

The 1975 frontman was leaving The Nice Guy in West Hollywood when a few female fans handed him a glass bong -- 'cause apparently a joint or a pipe would be way too subtle.

Healy wasn't shy either, ripping through the bowl so quickly ... he started looking for ganja refills, and you gotta see how his fans responded. 

We'll say this ... it's good to be a rock star.

This is definitely the coolest thing that's happened to Healy since Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss mashed faces at a 1975 show.

Diddy

Fistfighting Allegations Against Coach

Could Scare Prosecutors

6/26/2015 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0626-sal-alosi-diddy-usatsi-tmz-01Diddy may have caught a huge break from a chiropractor who just came forward with a stunning allegation against UCLA coach Sal Alosi, claiming Alosi is prone to fistfights, and even had one with a New York Jets superstar.

TMZ Sports has obtained a letter from a female chiropractor sent to Jets brass in 2010 ... raising serious concerns about strength and conditioning coach Alosi. According to the chiropractor, Alosi got into a "fistfight" with Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis. The doctor added Alosi has a pattern of abusive behavior and the Jets needed to get him under control.

We've learned the chiropractor sent the letter to Diddy's team, and it could be a secret weapon. The D.A. will review the assault case for possible felony prosecution, but if the main victim looks unsympathetic and even violent, it's way less likely they'd go forward. Juries don't like unsympathetic "victims."

The chiropractor also complained Alosi verbally abused and humiliated her, even trying to prohibit her from treating players because he was pissed off over petty issues involving towels and water. 

It's unclear how the Jets handled the chiropractor's allegations. Alosi was suspended during the 2010 season for tripping a player during a game, and he resigned from the team at the end of the season.

We called Diddy's rep for comment but have not heard back.

Supreme Court

Same-Sex Marriage Has Our Blessing

6/26/2015 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0625-men-holding-hands-court-getty-01
The United States Supreme Court just ruled by the narrowest of margins that gays have a constitutional right to tie the knot.

It's a landmark ruling that has profound consequences. Fourteen states currently ban gay marriages, but as of today the ban is lifted and all states are now REQUIRED to issue marriage licenses, irrespective of sex.

For all you legal eagles, the decision was 5-4, and Justice Anthony Kennedy again proved he's the most powerful man on the Court, not only providing the swing vote but writing the majority opinion.

The court said the gay marriage ban served to "disrespect and subordinate them." The justices added the ban was a "grave and continuing harm."

President Barack Obama applauded the ruling, tweeting, "Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else #LoveWins."

Hillary Clinton quickly weighed in, tweeting, "Proud to celebrate a historic victory for marriage equality -- & the courage and determination of LGBT Americans who made it possible."

Tyga

Fights with Club Owner ...

Eyewitness Says Gun Drawn

6/26/2015 6:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tyga pissed off a Swiss club owner so much, the guy chased him outside and started a fist fight with the rapper and his entourage ... and Kylie Jenner had a front row seat.

Tyga was scheduled to play a show at Envogue Genève, a club in Geneva, Switzerland. According to our sources, Tyga was supposed to play for an hour ... but he showed up super late and only performed for about 10 minutes.

0626-sub-kylie-tyga-wm-tmz-01Tyga left the club around 4 AM and got in his car with Kylie. The enraged owner was hot on Tyga's heels, running out of the club, yelling for Tyga ... a fight then broke out.

At that point Tyga got out of the car to join in the fracas, but an eyewitness says someone in the owner's posse flashed a gun. That was apparently enough for Tyga to make a hasty retreat, leaving his bodyguards behind.

Diddy's Son

Humiliated by Coach

Over Courtside All-Star Seats

6/26/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0625_diddy_josh_ben_stiller_gettyThe coach who fought Diddy this week ... brutally shamed Diddy's son by using a paparazzi pic to drive home a point -- that he thinks Justin Combs is a spoiled rich kid.

Sources connected to UCLA's football program tell TMZ Sports ... the humiliating incident went down in February. Coach Sal Alosi had several players in the the gym for a training sesh, which Justin missed because he was at the NBA All-Star game.

We're told Alosi openly mocked Justin by putting a pic of him at the game -- next to Diddy and Ben Stiller ... in all the gym monitors. We're told Alosi told players ... "While you guys are training, this guy is sitting courtside with his dad." The pic remained up for 24 hours.

As we've reported ... Diddy sources say Alosi ran a campaign of psychological warfare against Combs for the past 3 years.

Our UCLA sources say over the years, Alosi has told Justin things like -- "You're only here because of your dad," and ... "You never belonged here," and ... "You should just go work for your dad."

We reached out to Alosi, through UCLA ... so far, no response.
