Nicki Minaj's Ex

Someone's Leaking Her Nude Pics ...

But It Ain't Me

4/17/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0416-safaree-nicki-instagram-tmz-01Someone posing as Safaree Samuels is tweeting out extremely NSFW pics of his ex, Nicki Minaj ... but the rapper is adamant ... he's got nothing to do with it.

A rep for Safaree tells TMZ ... he'd never do anything like this, and he's doing everything he can to shut down the tweeter behind it. The photos -- some in highly sexual situations -- started going out on Wednesday ... from a Twitter handle extremely similar to Safaree's.

Safaree Samuels Nicki Minaj Nude PicsJust so fans know ... the real @IAMSAFAREE has around 143k followers -- while the faker posting the pics has just over 3400.

As for whether the pics -- especially the graphic ones -- are legit? Safaree's rep says he doesn't know. We're told Safaree's moved on after the difficult break up with Nicki, and now just says ... it is what it is. 

We reached out to Nicki's rep, but no word back.

Big Ang

Sister Makes Mea Culpa ...

Sorry, I Hit Up Fans for Cash

4/17/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0416_big_ang_tmzThe sister of "Mob Wives" star Big Ang thought she was doing a good thing by creating a donation page for medical costs, but quickly had second thoughts ... and is now apologizing to Ang's fans.

Janine Detore says "Mob Wives" fans were reaching out and asking how and where they could make donations to help Ang cover bills for her throat cancer treatment. So, Janine created a GoFundMe page. 

But after less than a day a fan wondered why a celeb was asking for money. Detore realized it was a good point. She tells us Ang and the fam can more than handle any expenses insurance doesn't cover -- so, she immediately disabled the page. 

Detore says they only got about $150 during the few hours the page was active. She adds, Big Ang had no idea the page was ever up. 

As for Ang's condition ... she's resting at home and doing very well -- but Janine says doctors are planning another surgery to remove her right lymph nodes ... as a precaution.

 Sacha Baron Cohen Isla Fisher Baby Boy

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher have made their first bouncing baby boy ... TMZ has learned.

We've obtained a copy of the birth certificate -- filed with the L.A. County Dept. of Public Health -- and it says Montgomery Moses Brian Baron Cohen was born on March 17.

It just came out last week they'd had the baby -- but they didn't say the name, sex or birth date.

MMBBC is the third child for Isla and the 'Borat' star. They have 2 daughters ... Olive, 7 and Elula, 4.

As for all the names, Isla's dad's name is Brian -- but we're at a loss on Montgomery and Moses ... outside of the 'Ten Commandments' guy.

Gigi Hadid

Too Hot For No Crotch Zone

Gigi Hadid might be the hottest young model on the scene -- which may explain why her crotch is pubic enemy #1 in Qatar. The government there is on a mission to block her dirty-dirty no-no below the belt body parts from mainstream magazines!

They're still okay with boobs though. So, that's makes 'em at least half cool.tmz-on-tv-3

Kanye West

One Crappy Homecoming

You've Been Served!

4/16/2015 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Kanye West's goodwill tour to Armenia and the Middle East came to a sucky ending for him -- moments after touching down at LAX ... he got served with legal papers.

Kanye, Kim Kardashian and North flew back to L.A. Thursday and the scene was absolute chaos. While Yeezy was running the gauntlet -- with North in his arms -- he never saw the guy in a suit sneak up behind him.

As Kanye got into his waiting SUV ... the process server reached in behind him and tossed the papers onto one of the seats. Kim followed a few seconds later, when it appears someone threw the papers out of the vehicle. The process server did not reveal the nature of the legal action.

Two things to watch here: 1. Kanye really keeps his cool under pressure ... and 2. That process server is REALLY brave reaching past bodyguards and into Kanye's vehicle.

Model Sarah Stage

See, My BIG Baby Had ...

Plenty of Womb

4/16/2015 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0417-main-sarah-stage-baby-sunofhollywood-instagram-01People don't want to believe model Sarah Stage gave birth to an 8 lb. baby -- especially since her belly only looked like it had a quarter pounder with cheese in it -- but here's photo proof of the big guy.

Sarah's son, James, is looking totally comfy and snug after his arrival on Tuesday. As we first told you ... James weighed in at 8 lbs. 7 oz, and 22 inches ... all above average measurements for newborns.

Sarah stirred controversy, disbelief, and probably some hatred -- when she posted selfies looking super skinny for any woman ... much less one who was 8-9 months pregnant.

We get the feeling she didn't mind the heat -- at least based on that lingerie pic she posted ... just HOURS before she officially attained MILF status.

Gwyneth Paltrow

The Chicken Made Me Do It!!

Fails at Being Poor

breaking news

0416-gwyneth-paltrow-01-composite

Gwyneth Paltrow lasted 4 days as a poor person, caving to cravings that included chicken and black licorice.

The Goopster attempted to live on $29 a week, like someone on food stamps. Her food selections were not exactly the staple of the needy -- cilantro, avocados, scallions, kale and limes.

But it all went to hell when she just had to have chicken, fresh vegetables and more. She posted on Goop, "in fully transparency ... half a bag of black licorice."

Gwyneth gave herself a C minus.

On Wednesday, her rep said ..."She already finished the challenge last week." The rep never mentioned she fell 3 days short.

But Gwyneth herself admits she's really bad at poor.

'Love & Hip Hop' Star Jhonni Blaze

Co-Star Throws Shade ...

Helps Spread Stripper Fight Vid

4/16/2015 12:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

What do you think "Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Jhonni Blaze is more pissed about -- the fact a video of her catching an ass whupping is going viral ... or the fact one of her co-stars helped spread it?

The video is from Jhonni's stripper days back in Houston ... a few years ago, and shows her in an epic fight with another stripper. All you need to know is Jhonni (who used to bang Drake) is the one on the ground ... so the clip is far from flattering to her.

As for why the video just surfaced ... Jhonni recently talked smack about being a badass on the 'LHHNY' reunion show -- so a fan of Moniece Slaughter (Jhonni's nemesis) dug up the clip to shame JB. Moniece was delighted and even reposted the clip ... though she eventually deleted it.

In the end, it doesn't really matter why -- it's a great video. Watch and enjoy.

Exclusive Details

0416-kim-richards-tmz-01Kim Richards was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel early Thursday morning -- after allegedly going on a drunken rampage and kicking a police officer ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... Richards had been hanging out at the famous Polo Lounge inside the hotel and was asked to leave because she was too hammered and being "unruly." 

We're told Richards went to a bathroom and refused to come out. Cops were called to the scene and we're told they had to "drag her out" of the bathroom.

Richards -- who has struggled with substance abuse in the past -- was reportedly belligerent, slurring her speech and reeked of booze. 

We're told Kim was taken to a nearby jail -- where she allegedly kicked a police officer. 

She's been charged with trespass, resisting arrest, battery on a police officer and drunk in public. 

Cops issued a citation to Richards -- and she was later released.

Richards' sobriety was called into question on the recent "Real Housewives" reunion special -- when Lisa Rinna suggested that Kim was on something during a car ride earlier in the season.

Kim had admitted that she had taken a pain pill -- but was adamant she had not fallen off the wagon. 

Tyrese Gibson

Hands Off Cookie, Terrence...

I'm Coming to 'Empire' (Maybe)

4/16/2015 11:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tyrese Gibson thinks Terrence Howard has been a good opening act, but it's time for the headliner -- Tyrese himself -- to join "Empire" and reunite with Taraji P. Henson.

Tyrese told our photog what he thought of Henson -- aka Cookie Lyon -- saying it would "break the Internet" if he joined the ever-growing list of guest stars for Season 2. Sounds like he's more than interested.

Gibson and Henson definitely have a hot history -- they met on the set of "Baby Boy" back in 2001 and then sparks flew off set. Check out Tyrese's take on a possible reunion ... think black 'Notebook.'

Watch your back, Lucious.
