Offset 28th Birthday Does Not Disappoint ... Cardi B Cheers on Stripper During Lap Dance!!!

LAP OF LUXURY

Offset and Cardi B had way more fun than you Friday night ... at least that's a safe bet!

There was a pretty spectacular party in downtown L.A. in celebration of the 28th birthday of the Migos member.

Mega

Where to start. Lots of strippers. A bank safe full of bills ... it's a combination that never fails. Offset got a lap dance as his wife cheered both him and the stripper on. The forecast was rain and plenty of it, due in large part to Offset's tried-and-true technique.

As for eats ... Popeyes chicken sandwiches for starters.

BTW ... Migos has partnered with Uber Eats and Popeyes to launch a "Migos Menu" with different deals named after each member. The promotion was launched after Quavo posted an Instagram video of himself selling Popeyes Chicken Sandwiches from his car for $1,000 a pop!)

When the party ended, Cardi shows us a floor littered in $1s.

Happy birthday Offset, and way to throw a party!!!

Kanye and Joel Osteen Religious Road Show in the Works

Exclusive
TMZ.com

Kanye West and Joel Osteen know a good thing when they see it, and after a massive success at Joel's Sunday Service in Houston, they've talked about a possible national tour.

TMZ broke the story, Kanye and Joel will appear at Yankee Stadium on May 2 and they will almost certainly sell the venue out. Kanye will be responsible for the music ... Joel will perform the sermon.

Our sources say the next venue will be Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago ... Kanye's hometown. We're told that event will go down in September.

Joel Olsteen Ministries

But, there's more. We're told Joel and Kanye are talking regularly now ... mostly about religion, but they've also talked about expanding the kind of show they put on in Houston. We're told, although nothing has been locked down, they're talking about Miami, Detroit and Los Angeles. Joel has taken his service to Detroit in the past -- at Comerica Park in 2016, with great success. As for L.A. ... we're told the likely venue is Dodger Stadium.

Lakewood Church

We're told Chicago, L.A. and Miami would likely be in 2021.

Here's our take ... They need to do a residency in Vegas. It sounds crazy, but it would be a gigantic hit.

Juice WRLD's death has raised serious issues ... were the feds targeting him because he's a rich, young, black rapper who flies in private jets? And, since Kanye and Joel Osteen are taking their show on the road, could Vegas be far behind? So, we gotta ask ...

Richard Grieco Sobbing During Drunken Arrest ... 'I Did Nothing Wrong!!!'

Exclusive
PLEADING HIS CASE
TMZ.com

"21 Jump Street" star Richard Grieco doesn't react well when the cuffs are getting slapped on him, as proven by this video of his DFW airport bust for public intoxication.

Police body cam footage, obtained by TMZ, shows Grieco angrily storming away from the American Airlines ticket counter in Dallas when a cop confronts him. Richard's pretty indignant at first, even asking the officer, "You guys know who I am?"

He then tried to talk his way out of his drunken situation, but it doesn't work. Cops put him under arrest and gave him a pop quiz on his level of inebriation. Watch ... you can't say he passed the test, but TBH -- it also seemed unnecessary to grill him.

It was obvious he was wasted. Richard slurred, sobbed and insisted he didn't do anything wrong as he was led away in handcuffs.

Things didn't get much better for the former TV police officer when he got to the station. He continued crying and claimed he was being singled out because he's famous.

Chase Young 'Plan' Is To Return to Ohio State Not Thinking About Draft

I'LL BE BACK
TMZSports.com

Ohio State superstar Chase Young -- the projected #1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft -- says he's not thinking about declaring for the draft and the "plan" is to return to school.

... But you know what they say about plans. They change.

TMZ Sports spoke with the Heisman finalist in NYC on Friday before Saturday's big ceremony ... and, despite the MASSIVE contract he could have come April, Young says that's not on his mind.

Young -- a 20-year-old junior -- has been a dominant, uncontrollable force on defense for the Buckeyes this season ... racking up 16.5 sacks (a school record) despite being suspended 2 games.

So, yeah, whoever sits at the top of the draft is gonna want to either take Young or his old teammate/LSU sensation Joe Burrow ... but it sounds like the Bucks could come out winners. Maybe.

We also talked to Young about the upcoming Fiesta Bowl matchup with Clemson ... and he sounds ready to go.

BONUS -- this was Chase Young's first TMZ Sports moment and he got to share it with his mom!!! Hi, Mom!!!!

Jamie Foxx was in the mood to go, go, go to town on a bottle of tequila with Lil Jon ... because that's just how he does 52!!!

Jamie hit up Hakkasan Nightclub at MGM Grand in Las Vegas just after midnight Friday -- the official kickoff for his birthday -- and put his heart and soul into chugging the bottle ... with encouragement from Jon and the crowd.

We're told Foxx arrived with a group of about 20 people ready to party with him for his 52nd bday, and they got a VIP table next to the DJ booth ... where Lil Jon was performing.

Shots were flowing, of course, and both guys took pulls straight from the bottle to get things going. We're told LJ got Jamie onstage around 2:45 AM and told the house, "I’ve known Jamie for a long time, and he’s a good, real person. He ain’t down with all that Hollywood BS."

The duo then had some more Don Julio 1942 and danced to Lil Jon's classic track, "Turn Down For What" ... before he popped a bottle of champagne and showered Foxx.

Good times? YEAH!!! Whaaat?

Kevin Hart Ex-Friend Skates on 2 More Charges ... 1 Left in Sex Tape Scandal

Exclusive
TMZ Composite

The guy Kevin Hart believes tried to extort him in the sex tape scandal ... is 2 more steps closer to getting off scot-free in the case after a new court order.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, J.T. Jackson scored in court Friday when the judge dropped 2 of the 3 remaining charges he was facing. The judge said there was insufficient evidence to move forward with prosecuting Kevin's ex-friend with attempted concealing and selling stolen property, and one count of unauthorized use of personal identifying information -- basically, identity theft.

Jackson is still facing an additional count of identity theft, a felony ... in connection with the sex tape. Prosecutors alleged Jackson tried to score money from Kevin in exchange for the 2017 video of Kevin with Montia Sabbag in a Las Vegas hotel room.

Remember, the stiffest charge Jackson was facing -- attempted extortion -- was dropped back in September. As we reported, prosecutors didn't think that charge would stick because Jackson never directly made a specific financial demand of Kevin or his people.

Jackson's attorney, Jacob Glucksman, tells us, "We’ve maintained innocence since day one and as things have unfolded our beliefs have been confirmed. We will continue to fight this until Mr. Jackson’s name is cleared.

He adds, "The D.A. is grasping at straws and is being pressured by Mr. Hart's team of lawyers and agents, but we will continue to prevail."

We've reached out to the D.A.'s office for comment. So far, no word back.

Just hours after the NY Giants released Jenkins for using the word to insult a critic on Twitter, the NFL star agreed to speak with TMZ's Evan Rosenblum, a parent of a 4-year-old special needs daughter.

During the conversation, Evan explained why using the r-word as an insult is particularly hurtful for special needs families -- and Jenkins called it a "learning moment."

"It's always a learning moment, man. Everybody's going to learn from different situations ... move forward and learn."

We're told Jason went under the knife Thursday night and just hours after the band was forced to postpone a show in Duluth, Minnesota. The band, naturally, was there at the hospital to support Jason.

Seems Jason's gonna recover just fine ... and fans who missed out on the show should not fret. The rep tells us 5FDP will be rescheduling affected shows.

'RHOA' Star Eva Marcille Baby Daddy Loses Child Custody Bid ... In Georgia, At Least

Exclusive
TMZ.com

Eva Marcille is taking round one in the child custody battle her ex-BF started, now that a judge in Georgia's told him to kick rocks ... back to Cali.

According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star will maintain full custody of her and Kevin McCall's 5-year-old daughter, Marley Rae. The reason's simple ... Kevin failed to show why the case belonged in Georgia when an L.A. Superior Court judge issued the original custody order.

As we first reported, Eva and Kevin have been going at it in court for some time now. She begged the judge NOT to give him custody ... claiming he's a violent "ticking time bomb."

NOVEMBER 2019
THE INCITING INCIDENT

Last month, Kevin went to court to plead his case but that went south too. He got into a tussle with a cop in court, and took a nasty tumble down an escalator. Kevin believes he was the victim in that incident.

And, it gets worse for Kevin ... according to legal docs, there's a warrant out for his arrest in L.A. for missing a court date in his felony domestic violence case involving another woman.

So, to review ... it's good news for Eva -- and yet another piece of bad news for Kevin.
