Wendy Williams I Didn't Break Girl Code with Nene ... Keeping Much Bigger Secret


Wendy Williams says she didn't violate girl code by sharing NeNe Leake's plans to leave 'Real Housewives' ... and says she's sitting on an even bigger NeNe bombshell.

As you know, Wendy is getting tons of backlash for sharing -- on her talk show -- NeNe's private texts talking about bolting from 'RHOA.'  NeNe even chided Wendy for blabbing.


However, after Nene aired her feelings on Twitter ... our sources say she and Wendy spoke after about what happened.

JB Smoove I'm No Larry David ... Here I'll Even Sign Your Neck, TMZ!!!


JB Smoove had something to prove on the streets of New York -- he ain't as grouchy as Larry David is with autograph seekers, and we know this because he put pen to flesh.

We got the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Wednesday afternoon as he was greeted by a swarm of fans and autograph hounds chirping for signatures. JB kept it pretty real with them, saying he couldn't sign all of 'em. He held firm, too.

Of course ... this reminded our camera guy, Ezra, of his costar Larry David's recent L.A. run-in with an autograph brigade that ended with a super-heated confrontation and scolding.


Ezra tried to ask JB about it, and he cut us off ... insisting he didn't have as much of a problem with it as LD does. Then, he took it a step further ... signing for Ezra -- ON HIS NECK!!!

Check it out ... it seems like the skin game brought these two fellas damn close in the end. They even made a pinky-promise of sorts to each other.

We'll say this -- one particular TMZ employee might wanna load up on body spray.

Ryan Garcia Shades Tank Davis I'm A Bigger Star & Better Boxer


Gervonta Davis has threatened to "kill" Ryan Garcia if they actually sign a contract to fight.

Now, Ryan Garcia has a message for Tank ... LET'S DANCE IN DECEMBER!

The 21-year-old rising boxing star made it clear to TMZ Sports he ain't afraid of Floyd Mayweather's prodigy ... even after the way Tank violently dismantled Yuriorkis Gamboa last month.

"I'm already the bigger star," Garcia (19-0) told us outside of Westside Boxing Club ... "Now, I'm about to prove who's the better boxer, and that's me."

Both guys clearly want the smoke -- Davis (23-0) made that abundantly clear on Tuesday saying straight-up, "I will kill him."

"I’m being quiet and wait till that contract signed and then you will see the bad guy vs the good guy and I’m taking that role proudly."

These guys have been on a collision course for years ... back in early 2019, Floyd even offered to promote the fight if Garcia could get through some top-flight competition.


For his part, Garcia told us back in August a brawl with Davis "would be the biggest fight in boxing history."

But, before that ... Garcia needs to get through Francisco Fonseca (25-2-2) in Anaheim on February 14.

Guess Who This Suspenders Star Turned Into!!!

This smiling little boy in stripes was born and raised in Akron, Ohio ... but grew up to become a worldwide superstar, thanks to his basketball skills.

Though raised by his mom, he also grew up with the family of a local youth football coach, who introduced him to hoops when he was 9 years old. He soon began playing AAU ball, where he excelled with his teammates.

He'd go on to attend a private Catholic high school and lead his team to a state title as a freshman ... and only gained more national -- and NBA -- attention from there. He was the first sophomore named Ohio Mr. Basketball as he led his team to another title, but after losing in the championship his junior year, he tried to enter the NBA early ... to no avail.

It's okay, though ... he won this third state title as a senior and became the #1 overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft.

The rest is pretty much history -- possibly the greatest history of all-time -- but he's still in the league adding to his legacy ... which is already chock-full of rings and MVP awards.

Can you guess who he is?

Antonio Brown Arrest Warrant Issued ... Beware Of Guns

Exclusive Details

5:10 PM PT -- An arrest warrant has been formally issued for Antonio Brown for burglary with battery, stemming from the Tuesday altercation in front of his Florida home.

The arrest warrant warns officers that Brown has a concealed weapons permit "and is known to carry."

"Brown had a firearm stolen out of Dade County in 2018. Officers should use caution when approaching Brown, as he is known for being confrontational when dealing with police."

Story developing ...

Antonio Brown not only physically assaulted a moving truck driver -- he also picked up a rock and threw it at the vehicle, causing even more damage ... this according to police.

TMZ Sports has obtained court docs in the AB alleged assault case in which the moving truck driver describes why Brown and his trainer attacked him during a routine drop-off Tuesday at Brown's Florida home.

The driver claims he was hired to deliver belongings AB had stored in California -- but when he arrived and demanded his $4,000 payment, Brown refused to hand over the cash.


The driver claims he tried to leave the home (with AB's property still in his truck) but Brown picked up a rock and threw it at the vehicle causing a dent and a paint chip on the driver's side door. The driver called police to report the vehicle damage.

A short time later, the driver was contacted by the moving company and asked him to go back to Brown's home to redeliver the goods ... telling him Brown was willing to make the initial $4,000 payment PLUS an additional $860 to cover damage to the truck and the extra work time.

Upon arrival, the driver claims AB gave him the $4,000 but refused to pay a cent more -- so again, they argued. But, this time, the driver says Brown forced his way into the driver's side of the main cabin and began to physically strike him.

Brown's associates eventually restrained the NFL star.

Vanessa Hudgens I Can't Get Enough Kuzma ... Gotta Watch Him Ball!!!


Vanessa Hudgens seems pretty interested in Kyle Kuzma ... because she's hitting up the world's most famous arena to watch him ball out!!!

The newly-single actress just pulled up to Madison Square Garden to check out Kyle and his Los Angeles Lakers as they take on the New York Knicks ... this after hanging out the night before.


TMZ broke the story ... Vanessa and Kyle sat down together Tuesday night for a super-intimate dinner in Brooklyn, laughing and having a great time over a bottle of wine.

So, it looks like Vanessa is going back for a second helping of Kuzma. She's definitely dressed to impress, just check out those boots!!!

As you know ... Vanessa is fresh off her split from Austin Butler. The exes dated for 9 years, and she seems intent on putting Austin firmly in the rearview.

The big question now ... did Kuz hook Vanessa up with tix, and will she be a good luck charm?!?

Kylie Jenner & Travis Scott Together with Stormi at Disney ... First Time Since 'Thirst Trap' Squabble


Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott got back to their co-parenting ways thanks to the magic of Walt Disney World ... showing they're still cool, despite ending 2019 on a bad foot.

The exes were spotted together Wednesday with their daughter, Stormi, at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando ... taking a ride on Peter Pan's Flight. It's the first time we've seen all 3 together, in one public photo, in several months.

They went to a pumpkin patch together in October but didn't snap any full family pics -- and before that ... ya gotta go all the way back to Travis' Netflix premiere in August.

Our sources say Trav joined Kylie and Stormi, along with the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, as sort of an early bday treat for their daughter. She turns 2 next weekend.

Aerosmith Joey Blocked from Band Rehearsal by Security Guards


4:19 PM PT -- We've obtained video from over the weekend showing Joey arrive at an Aerosmith Grammy rehearsal in L.A. only to be turned away by two security guards. The guards make it clear, they were given the orders to refuse Joey's entry by the other 4 members of the band.

Joey says he was given a rehearsal schedule from the band on January 18 and flew to L.A. the next day ... that's where the video picks up.

Joey tells TMZ, "The band waited until January 15th to tell me that they weren’t letting me play at the awards ceremonies this week. I can hold my head high knowing that I did the right thing – to fight for my right to celebrate the band’s success that I have dedicated the better part of my life to helping build."

He continues, "The band’s offer to allow me to participate in this week’s MusiCares and Grammy celebrations for red carpet photo ops only, is appreciated; however, with a fill-in drummer playing on stage at two events honoring our collective musical contributions, it is extremely hurtful to me. I am a professional musician who is eager to return to my rightful place with Aerosmith."

2:36 PM PT -- A rep for Aerosmith tells us the band won't be commenting as they consider it a family matter.

Aerosmith's drummer, Joey Kramer, got shut down in court ... after a judge ruled against him rejoining the band for its upcoming Grammy performance.

The judge said Joey didn't make a convincing enough case for playing with bandmates when they take the stage for Sunday's award show, and also for Saturday night's MusiCares gala.

In his ruling, the judge seemed to agree with Aerosmith's stance that Joey's just too rusty for a live performance at this point. He said, "Given that Kramer has not played with the band in 6 months and the dearth of available rehearsal time before the upcoming performances, Kramer has not shown a realistic alternative course of action sufficient to protect the band's business interests."

Wendy Williams Divorce is Official

Exclusive Details

Wendy Williams is officially a single lady -- cue Beyonce -- this according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ.

The TV host's final judgment got the judge's stamp of approval Tuesday in New Jersey. The docs include some interesting tidbits about who gets what.

The Livingston, NJ house she and Kevin Hunter put up for sale is eventually gonna be split down the middle -- 50/50. Wendy gets to keep a crib they have in Florida, where her mom lives. Kevin, meanwhile, gets to keep the proceeds from another house he owned and recently sold in Morristown, NJ.

The docs say they each owned equal shares of their production company, and apparently Kevin is going to sell off his part of it to Wendy. She'll be the sole owner, but she's paying him a lump sum, plus a severance package. The amounts are confidential.

Lala Kent & Randall Emmett Meryl Streep Big Timed Us at SAG!!! But for De Niro, So ...


"Vanderpump Rules" stars Lala Kent and Randall Emmett can wear it like a badge of honor now, 'cause the way they got subtly dissed by Meryl Streep ... turned out to be pretty epic.

Lala and her fiance were on "TMZ Live" Wednesday and we asked them about rubbing elbows with Meryl Sunday night at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. If ya missed it, Lala was giddy about getting seated near Meryl and Adam Driver inside the Shrine Auditorium.

Her social media totally blew up when viewers saw her proximity to Queen Meryl -- but Lala and Randall told us things went a little south when they tried to get up close and personal.

You gotta see them describe the moment Randall tried to make an introduction. Not every day your moment gets hijacked by the likes of Robert De Niro!!!

Turns out producing "The Irishman" -- as Randall did -- is a lot easier than producing a pic with Meryl.

The good news ... Lala and Randall still got their photo op, even though it was just in the background of Iain Armitage's pic with Meryl.

Lala and Randall are hoping they get a second shot with their new podcast, "Give Them Lala ... With Randall." They have a few Oscar winners on their wish list of guests.

Watch the clip to see Lala prove she's ready for an Al Pacino sit-down!

If they can keep De Niro away, that is.

Juice WRLD Died from Accidental OD of Oxycodone


Juice WRLD died from an accidental overdose ... according to the Cook County Medical Examiner.

The M.E.'s Office says it found Oxycodone and codeine in his system and determined he died from toxic levels of those drugs.

TMZ broke the story ... Juice WRLD died in early December following a drug bust at Midway Airport in Chicago. Witnesses believed the rapper had swallowed a bunch of Percocet pills in an attempt to hide them from the feds. He ultimately suffered seizures, which proved fatal.

We should note Oxycodone is the main active ingredient in Percocet. Juice often rapped and talked about abusing lean -- aka codeine cough syrup. So, the presence of codeine in his system adds up.


As we reported, after Juice WRLD's death his mother, Carmella Wallace, told us her son had "battled with prescription drug dependency." She told us her hope was that Juice's openness about his struggles would help others dealing with the same issues.

The feds also found 70 pounds of weed in multiple vacuum-sealed bags inside luggage from the private jet. But, as we reported ... it doesn't appear anyone will be charged for the weed.

Kansas vs. Kansas State Massive Brawl Breaks Out Suspensions Handed Down

Breaking News

3:04 PM PT -- The Big 12 Conference just announced the official punishments for the brawl ... and it seems pretty light.

Kansas players Silvio De Sousa was suspended 12 games and David McCormack was suspended 2 games.

Kansas State's James Love was handed an 8-game punishment and Antonio Gordon was suspended 3 games.

Commissioner Bob Bowlsby released a statement on the incident ... saying “This kind of behavior cannot be tolerated and these suspensions reflect the severity of last evening’s events. I am appreciative of the cooperation of both institutions in resolving this matter.”

Worth noting -- all the players will be back from suspension in time for the Big 12 and the NCAA tournaments

10:11 AM PT -- Kansas coach Bill Self says Silvio De Sousa has been suspended indefinitely while the Big 12 investigates the altercation.

De Sousa was the player who held a stool over his head during the fight.

All hell broke loose at the end of the Kansas vs. Kansas State game on Tuesday ... with the players getting in a bench-clearing brawl.

It all got started in the closing seconds of the Jayhawks' 81-60 win ... when K. State's DaJuan Gordon stripped the ball from Kansas' Silvio De Sousa to try for a last-second bucket.

De Sousa ended up catching up with Gordon, stuffed his layup attempt ... and then proceeded to stand on top of his opponent.

The 2 players started going at it -- and then both teams rushed over to defend their teammates.

That's when MAYHEM ensued ... with players, coaches and other staff members getting involved. Punches were thrown, kicks and even one player thought about using a stool before an assistant coach yanked it from him.

Cops on the scene eventually broke up the fight after several minutes ... and both teams went to the locker room to cool off.

The craziest part??? The teams ended up having to come BACK out on the court to finish the last 0.1 seconds left in the game so K. State could shoot technical free throws.

Of course, there WILL be punishment handed down ... so it's just a matter of time before the teams find out the consequences of the melee.

Justin Bieber Serves Up Grilled Cheese & Fish Tacos In 'Yummy' Food Truck


Justin Bieber has a promising career as a food truck vendor if he ever gets sick of writing music and touring the world.


Bieber and James Corden were slinging grilled cheese sandwiches and fish tacos from the Yummy Food Truck Wednesday in Los Angeles. The cost for each product was only $1.00 and proceeds benefit the L.A. food bank.


As for the official menu hanging outside the truck, it was a spin on a couple of Justin's singles ... "Where Are You Now That I Need Cheese You?" for the grilled cheese and "Despacitotacos" for the fish tacos.

Cameras for Corden's late show were on hand to get the whole thing as more than 100 people showed up to get some grub, so it's clear neither of them has fully quit their day jobs.


It appears Justin and Corden also shot a segment for James' "Carpool Karaoke" ... they were seen tooling around in an SUV with a ton of cameras mounted around it.

Eli Manning IT'S A WRAP QB Retires After 16 Seasons

Breaking News

It's all over for Eli Manning ... the NY Giants QB just announced his retirement after 16 seasons in the NFL.

Giants co-owner John Mara says, "For 16 seasons, Eli Manning defined what it is to be a New York Giant both on and off the field."

"Eli is our only two-time Super Bowl MVP and one of the very best players in our franchise’s history. He represented our franchise as a consummate professional with dignity and accountability."

"It meant something to Eli to be the Giants' quarterback, and it meant even more to us. We are beyond grateful for his contributions to our organization and look forward to celebrating his induction into the Giants Ring of Honor in the near future."

There was some talk Eli could be looking to sign with another team and try to play a few more years ... but that seems unlikely now, with Manning set to hold a farewell presser.

The next big question for Eli ... will he end up in Canton?

Besides the 2 Super Bowl victories and MVP awards -- both against Tom Brady's Patriots -- Eli was also a 4-time Pro Bowler and started at QB for 210 games, 13 seasons! He's ranked 7th all-time in career passing TDs with 366.

On the flip side, Manning is 12th all-time for career interceptions with 244.

Arguably, his most impressive moment was leading the Giants over the then-undefeated Patriots in the Super Bowl XLII ... in a game that included the famous helmet catch to receiver David Tyree.
