Beyonce & Jay Z

Check Out Our New $45 Million Palace

10/6/2015 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Jay Z and Beyonce got the last laugh after getting notice to leave the house they were renting ... because we've learned they got an even better house.

Our sources say Bey and Jay are now renting the $45 million Holmby Hills palace that was owned by ex-L.A. Dodgers owner Frank McCourt.

McCourt sold the house to a British billionaire last year for $45 million, but we're told the new owner was hardly in L.A. and it just sat vacant. So he recently decided to put it on the market for lease ... we're told for around $150k a month.

Our sources -- all of whom are people who were on hand this past weekend facilitating the move -- say Beyonce and Jay signed a 1-year lease. 

As for the house ... it's 20,000 square feet, complete with an indoor Olympic-sized pool complex and an outdoor pool with a waterfall and formal gardens. 

As we previously reported, Bey Z got the boot from their old rental in the same neighborhood after the owner decided to sell it.

We broke the story ... Jay Z and Beyonce are putting down stakes in L.A., largely because they think it's a good place to raise Blue Ivy.


Bill Cosby

Chloe Goins Sues ...

He's a 'Serial Rapist'

10/6/2015 1:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006_Chloe-Goins_bill_cosby_tmzBill Cosby was just sued by the woman who has triggered an active criminal investigation against the comedian. 

Chloe Goins -- who says she met Cosby at the Playboy Mansion in 2008 where she allegedly was given a date rape drug -- outlines in the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the claims 40 other women have made and then says, "The nature of these activities establishes a history of a serial rapist that has been conducting these horrendous activities against women for over the last 40 years."

She says she woke up naked in a room with Cosby who was at the end of the bed biting one of her toes. Goins claims Cosby quickly left the room when he noticed she was awake. 

The case is now under review by the LA District Attorney. 

Chloe is asking for more than $75,000 in damages. 



Kanye West

The Kardashians Should Have A TON of Emmys By Now!!

10/6/2015 11:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West, the same guy who went on an EPIC anti-award show rant thinks the entire Kardashian clan deserves multiple Emmys for being pioneers in the reality show world.

In an interview with SHOWstudio, Yeezy relates Caitlyn's public transition and how new it was to society to rappers Run-D.M.C. and Will Smith. He says rappers weren't accepted into high class society at first because it was a new concept -- just like Caitlyn's transition. 

He then goes on about "Keeping up with the Kardashians." The good stuff starts around 1:02:21 ...  Kanye says the reality show was such a ground-breaking "art form" that it deserves multiple Emmys for starting a whole new genre.

We'll leave that up to the Academy.  


'16 & Pregnant' Whitney Purvis

Someone Gave My Dog Away

10/6/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-main-whitney-purvis-facebook-01"16 and Pregnant" star Whitney Purvis says her adorable Boston Terrier Chumpy ran away and was adopted by a new family before she even had a chance to look for him, so she's fighting the rescue shelter to get the pooch back.

Purvis says Chumpy was being watched by neighbors while she was on vacation when he ran away.

Animal control says they picked up a Boston Terrier Sept. 23 and kept him for the 3-day stray hold. No one claimed him, so the dog went to Boston Terrier Rescue of East Tennessee and someone adopted him.

Whitney says BTRET refused to ante up the name of Chumpy's new fam. 

BTRET claims they did everything by the book, adding the dog wasn't tagged or microchipped.

Here's where the story doesn't add up ... animal control says it picked the dog up Sept. 23, the day before Whitney left for her trip ... so someone's lying.

We get all the fuss ... Chumpy's a cutie!



Makes it Rain in Dallas Strip Club

... Shake Ya Tailfeather!

10/6/2015 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nelly just proved he's still got money to burn by unloading a massive stack of cash on some Dallas strippers.

The rap star hit up VLive Dallas with a few friends Monday night and we're told the rain produced 31,000 singles.

The club can thank Drake for Nelly's donation -- we're told he showed up after hearing Drake rap about the joint.

So, we're guessing Drake will be sending over an invoice any day.


'Vanderpump Rules' Star

Sues Teeth Whitening Company

They're a Bunch of Jax Offs!

10/6/2015 9:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-jax-taylor-tmz-01"Vanderpump Rules" star Jax Taylor is looking to wipe the smile right off of a teeth whitening company's corporate face ... claiming his pearly whites have been jaxed. 

Taylor filed legal docs claiming he had a deal in 2009 with Lumibrite to pose for ads for its teeth whitening product. He says the deal ended a long time ago, but the company's kept using his mug.

This is Jax's second lawsuit in a month ...  he sued a shoe company in September for another endorsement deal gone wrong. 

We reached out to Lumibrite for comment ... so far, no word back.



Big Ang

Caitlyn Jenner ...

I'm Over 'HIM'

10/6/2015 1:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Big Ang decided to go on the attack against Caitlyn Jenner  ... but her choice of venue was odd ... a gay night club. 

It all went down during the question round of the Miss Feathers Pageant in New Jersey, where Ang asked contestants what they thought of Caitlyn Jenner.

A contestant's answer sends Ang off in a third-person pronoun tirade.

Big Ang punches below the belt a couple more times before walking off stage. She kinda reminds us of an evil Rodney Dangerfield, no? 



Nick Gordon

The Brown Family is Screwing Me Over

I'm Not a Murderer

10/6/2015 9:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-nick-gordon-splash-01Nick Gordon says Bobbi Kristina's family is painting him as a murderer and scumbag to the point he will never get a fair trial if he's criminally prosecuted.

Gordon says in legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the Brown family has painted him a "murderer, a habitual batterer of women, a seducer of young white females, a thief and/or con man fueled by monetary gain, and a chemist capable of making a toxic cocktail."

Gordon is asking the judge to stop the $40 million wrongful death lawsuit the Browns filed against him until the criminal process runs its course.

The big thing for Gordon ... he says he has a right to remain silent, and the civil case would force him to answer questions that could be used against him if criminal charges are filed.



'Millionaire Matchmaker' Client

I Didn't Rape Those Women ...

They All Wanted It

10/6/2015 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-michael-bernback-bravo-01"Millionaire Matchmaker" client Michael Bernback, the guy accused of raping three women, says they all wanted it and one of the women even let him pee in her mouth. 

Bernback says in legal docs, obtained by TMZ, he met all three women on sexual hook-up websites. He claims at least two of the women knew they'd be engaging in bondage and/or anal sex -- a totally different story than what his eight felony and three misdemeanor charges indicate.  

During one encounter, Bernback says one of the women allowed herself to be tied up with various bondage devices and let Bernback "urinate into her mouth" in the shower.

According to the legal docs, the woman all admitted they advertised on sexual hook-up websites they were looking for sexual liaisons.  The docs say at least 1 of the women told cops she knew there would be multiple women on hand for a sexual encounter.

Lawyers for Bernback want a judge to force the prosecutors to be more specific as to which sexual acts were allegedly nonconsensual.

1006-cindy-crawford-rande-gerber-mavirx-01Here's what Cindy Crawford really looks like untouched ... in a bikini.

Crawford hit the waves Monday with husband Rande Gerber in Miami, putting body shaming Internet trolls in their place with her itsy bitsy white snakeskin bikini and flat torso.

It's sweet justice for the mother of two who became the victim of an unflattering Photoshop prank.

Gerber seems to be keeping up with his wife, for the most part.

She turns 50 in February. Life truly is unfair.

I Thought I Could Change Chris Brown

After the Beating

breaking news

1006-rihanna-brown-getty-01Rihanna now says she gave Chris Brown a second chance after he beat her up because she felt she was just one of those people "built to handle s*** like this."

Rihanna spoke to Vanity Fair about her reasoning for taking Chris Brown back and making the decision to lift the restraining order after the brutal beating. You may recall, she went vacationing with Chris 3 weeks after the attack.

Rihanna's logic for going back ... "Maybe I'm the person who's almost the guardian angel to this person, to be there when they're not strong enough, when they're not understanding the world, when they just need someone to encourage them in a positive way and say the right thing."

She went on, saying she thought she could change Brown, "A hundred percent. I was very protective of him. I felt that people didn't understand him."

And she had an interesting take on how she actually became Brown's "enemy," saying, "You want the best for them, but if you remind them of their failures, or if you remind them of bad moments in their life, or even if you say I'm willing to put up with something, they think less of you."

Steve Rannazzisi

I Only Had 15 Seconds

To Change My 9/11 Lie

10/6/2015 6:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

'League' star Steve Rannazzisi admits he did a "terrible" thing by lying about 9/11, but says the lie was not premeditated ... it started at an off the cuff quip at The Comedy Store.

Steve went on Howard Stern's show Tuesday and explained his lie ... that he was in one of the Twin Towers during the attack and it became a life-changing moment that led him to pursue his career in comedy.

According to Steve, he was just asked by someone at the club where he was during the attack and the phony story just spilled out. He says once that happens you have 15 seconds to say it was BS or else you have to own it.

It's a really good interview. He says he chose to talk about his lie on 'Stern' because Howard personifies New York and felt it was the right venue.
