Da Brat I'm Not Muting R. Kelly ... BTW, Where are the Parents in all This?

1/20/2019 12:12 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Da Brat has quite the hot take on R. Kelly -- she's questioning the role of his alleged victims' parents, and asking one simple question ... do ya keep track of your kids?

We got the legendary femcee Saturday at the Trumpet Awards in Atlanta, where we asked her about R. Kelly -- whom she says she's close with and has shared history. DB and R. Kelly went to the same Chicago high school, and he even wrote her 1st demo record.

Da Brat tries to walk a tight rope here at first, saying she doesn't believe the women in "Surviving R. Kelly" are lying -- and acknowledging R. Kelly probably does need to get help -- but she eventually makes it clear where her allegiance lies ... it's with him. 

Then she drops a bomb -- asking point blank, "Where are the parents?" She says the parents of the young women who are allegedly being held captive by R. Kelly need to take responsibility and get a grip on where their children are at, and who they hang out with.

Regarding his music ... she says she's not deleting one R. Kelly song from her playlist.

Drake to the NFL's Final 4 Fine, I'm Cursed And Now, So Are You

1/20/2019 11:32 AM PST

Drake has finally realized that if he sides with any one sports team, they'll probably lose -- so he's sending the final 4 NFL squads good vibes by equally cursing all of them.

We're kidding, of course ... and clearly, so is Drizzy. He posted a photo of himself late Saturday night wearing a sweater with patches bearing all four remaining NFL teams --the L.A. Rams, the New England Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs and the New Orleans Saints.

He captioned his pic ... "For everyone who believes in the Drake curse good luck tmrw."

In case you're unfamiliar ... Drake has a pretty bad streak of supporting teams ... and those teams being doomed with losing records or big losses in general (just ask the University of Alabama's football team, they're his latest victim).

Drake has also supported Kentucky basketball (title-less since 2012), the Toronto Raptors (zero finals appearances), Conor McGregor (who got smashed up by Khabib) and Serena Williams (who lost at Wimbledon last year). 

As for this latest pledge of allegiance ... it's probably a good idea to remain neutral. Smart call, D.

Kanye to Kim Look, Hun ... 112's Here to Sing for You Live!!!

1/20/2019 11:05 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Kanye West surprised Kim Kardashian with a live love letter that couldn't have been better delivered than Cupid himself -- so he got the guys who sing in his name to send it.

Kim posted a video to social media Saturday night showing Ye calling her via FaceTime and revealing that he was hanging with none other than R&B group 112 -- who serenaded her with one of their classic hits through the phone ... "Cupid."

It's just Mike and Slim left who are still together and performing as 112, but two seems to be the magic number for KKW ... 'cause she was ecstatic over the performance. She later tweeted, "You guys have no idea how much that call means to me!!!!! 112 is my favorite group! I literally almost cried! Kourtney and Khloe completely feel me. They love 112 too."

As for why they were with Kanye in the first place, sources familiar with the meet-up tell us Ye's planning on collaborating with the two crooners for new music.

Speaking of Mike and Slim ... we ran into them Friday at the Montage Hotel in Bev Hills, where we asked if there was any chance they'd reunite with Q and Daron anytime soon.

Sounds like the answer is still a hard no, but hey ... you can catch 'em live in concert these days if you're still crazy over them. 

Cardi B to Tomi Lahren You're Nothing But a Trump Sheep!!! ... Oh, and I'll Dog Walk You

1/20/2019 10:40 AM PST

A new political feud is quickly emerging online and it's between a couple of the most unlikely people you ever thought would get into it ... Cardi B and one Tomi Lahren.

It all started with Tomi commenting on Cardi's political rants last week about the government shutdown, with Tomi saying, "Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020."

On Sunday, Cardi finally responded by tweeting back a simple, yet very effective one-liner ... "Leave me alone I will dog walk you." Classic Cardi. 

Tomi quickly fired back by saying she was sure Cardi would dog walk her, but that fact alone doesn't "make your political rambling any less moronic."

CB kept her cool and composure with one final response (for now) by simply saying, "You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much .You are a perfect example on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP!"

Tomi responded to Cardi's reply to someone else who mentioned taxes, telling CB that if she didn't want to pay so much (about $4 mil apparently), she should embrace the GOP.

Something tells us that ain't happening, especially with how many ladies were repping Cardi for the Women's March Saturday. We think she's set.

Fetty Wap's BM Massive Brawl Caught on Video

1/20/2019 7:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

It was a brutal scene outside a White Castle in Paterson, NJ early Friday morning -- and the new video clearly shows it -- as a group of people appear to be attacking Lezhae Lowder, Fetty Wap's baby mama and her friends. 

Alexis Skyy was there, laying low inside her Benz Truck, which you can see in the drive-thru while the melee occurs ... at least that's what Lezhae tells TMZ.

Lezhae and Alexis allegedly got into it earlier in the night at a bar. According to Alexis, she and her friends then went to the White Castle where Lezhae pulled up and tried to confront her with a knife.  

Although there are no signs of a knife in the video, you see the violence ... someone is stomped and punched repeatedly before being dragged by the hair. At one point you see Lezhae on the ground, covering herself.

The most frightening moment comes when a car tries to drive through the crowd, almost hitting multiple people before crashing into the side of the White Castle. The violence erupts again as the crowd rushes the car, smashing the back windshield.

Lezhae was arrested for misdemeanor reckless endangerment for involvement in the brawl.

Oldest Living Man Dead at 113

1/20/2019 7:31 AM PST

The oldest living man died peacefully Sunday morning in his home ... at 113 years old.

Masazo Nonaka was born in 1905. To put this in context, it's when Albert Einstein unveiled to the world his theory of relativity.

Speaking of relativity ... Nonaka was relatively independent. He used a wheelchair to get around and enjoyed reading newspapers and venturing out to a nearby spring bath once a week. He also loved eating sweets at the end of a meal.

His granddaughter said, "We feel shocked at the loss of this big figure. He was, as usual yesterday and passed away without causing our family any fuss at all."

Nonaka doesn't hold the Guinness World Record of all time ... the oldest living man was also from Japan and died in 2013 at 116 years old.

The oldest living woman was from France and died in 1997 at 122. 

RIP

Adrien Broner Explosion of Anger ... After Losing to Pacquiao

1/20/2019 6:59 AM PST

Adrien Broner went off the rails Saturday night in a post-fight interview after pretty much getting destroyed by Manny Pacquiao for the WBA welterweight championship ... telling Showtime's Jim Gray he could beat the crap out of him if he wanted.

Pacquiao dominated the fight -- pretty much everyone but Adrien agrees -- and Broner went on a tirade with Gray, who warned him to keep it civil or else he'd pull the plug on the interview.

Broner suggested the fight at the MGM Grand in Vegas was rigged, but Gray stood his ground ... not only saying the outcome was the right one but questioning Broner's future.

Check out the vid ... Broner doesn't really have a comeback to Gray regarding his recent losses, but he does say he'd have an unblemished record if Gray would step in the ring with him.

Broner posted a photo to Instagram shortly after the fight to show off the absence of bruises.

Rap Legend YoYo R. Kelly Betrayed Me ... His Crew Slipped My Daughter His Digits

1/20/2019 7:26 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

YoYo is still reeling from something that happened with R. Kelly sometime ago when she went to his recording studio with her daughter and the singer's people slipped her daughter his phone number.

The rap legend was in Atlanta Saturday night for the Trumpet Awards at The Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center when she revealed the story her daughter told her.

YoYo says her daughter was over 21 at the time, but R. Kelly didn't know that. She clearly felt betrayed by him and said at that point she knew something was up but didn't know the scope of the problem.

The time frame is unclear, but it seems this happened fairly recently because she says it went down at an L.A. recording studio where she and her daughter were listening to R. Kelly's new album.

Nick Cannon I'd Take Kanye in a Fight!!! Drake is More Ye's Speed

1/20/2019 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Cannon's confident he'd whoop Kanye West if they ever came to blows, but if Ye and Drake ever threw down ... his money's on the guy who's got more fire.

The "Wild 'n Out" host sat down with Raquel Harper for a new episode of BET's "Raq Rants," and dished on some real hip-hop feuds hypothetically coming to blows.

You'll recall ... Nick and Kanye had beef in September after Ye got pissed because Nick talked about Kim Kardashian's body. They eventually squashed it, but it still lends itself to fight fodder.

Cannon makes it clear he thinks he'd take Kim's husband down -- and explained why. Now, Kanye and his current nemesis, Drake, squaring off is a different story ... in Nick's eyes.

You gotta see Nick and Raq break down the fight. BTW, they both think if Diddy ever slapped Kanye the way he allegedly slapped Drake ... things would have turned out a lot differently.

Check out Nick's full interview on "Raq Rants," Tuesday night at 11 PM on BET. If you're on the West Coast and have Dish or DirecTV, it's on at 8 PM.

Pete Davidson Addresses Personal Crisis on 'SNL' ... And It's Funny

1/20/2019 6:50 AM PST

Pete Davidson was in good spirits on 'SNL' Saturday night and turned his personal crisis into a pretty funny bit.

During the Weekend Update segment, Pete appeared with John Mulaney and addressed the rough patch he's had, in particular, the alarming suicide threat he made back in December.

Mulaney says he spent a lot of time with Pete trying to get him back on the straight and narrow, and Pete's response will make you laugh, even though the subject is dark.

Social media gave Pete mixed reviews, but judging from last night he seems like he's back in the game.

Kimora Lee Simmons Parking Spot Brouhaha Cops Called

1/20/2019 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kimora Lee Simmons allegedly went to battle with another driver over a primo parking spot, and in the end ... they both ended up going to the cops.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Russell Simmons' ex-wife got into a dispute with a woman last week in a FedEx store parking lot in L.A., and it got physical. We're told the ladies were arguing over a spot and shoved each other before Kimora took off.

The cops were called by the other woman -- who filed a battery report against Kimora -- but later in the day ... Simmons contacted police and filed one of her own against the lady.

We're told cops are looking into it and plan to pull surveillance footage of the incident.

We reached out to Kimora ... no word back, so far.

Bam Margera Friends Worried He's Gonna Die ... Despite AA Meetings

1/20/2019 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bam Margera's friends are seriously worried about his ongoing battle with alcoholism, even though he's clearing the legal hurdles stemming from his DUI case.  

On the same day fellow 'Jackass' star Brandon Novak told us he's concerned over his buddy's drinking habits, Bam's lawyer was busy submitting legal docs informing the court that Bam was ahead of schedule with the terms of his DUI sentence. 

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Bam completed a 3-month online alcohol program and attended 10 AA meetings. He's still on probation.

Brandon told us he was super sketched out when Bam checked himself out of a Bay Area rehab facility earlier this month, because he believes Bam could end up killing himself if he doesn't clean up his act.
