Ex-Marlins President Flips Off And Trolls Hecklers ... 'F*ck You!!!'

12/18/2018 4:07 PM PST
Breaking News

Ex-Miami Marlins president David Samson egged on hecklers at a party this weekend ... flipping off the crowd, bragging about his team's sale and then screaming, "F*ck you!!!"

It all went down at ESPN personality, Dan Le Batard's birthday party in Miami ... where Samson -- one of the biggest sports villains in the city -- got up onstage for a speech.

The dude -- who many blame for making the Marlins a mess and forcing city's taxpayers to foot the bill for their new stadium -- was boo'd relentlessly before he could even open his mouth.

Samson's message to his haters??

"Thank you so much. Thank you very much. Here's why I love when you guys boo me. Right? I want you guys to keep booing me. Because guess what? $1.2 BILLION! F*ck you!!!!"

Of course, Samson's reference represents the amount of cash he and former owner Jeffrey Loria were able to sell the Marlins for, to Derek Jeter last year.

For their part ... both Samson and Le Batard say the whole thing was a joke, with Samson writing on Twitter, "Actually,not at all how it happened. All on tape and all in good fun. And, all for Lebatard’s birthday. No bragging, no fleecing."

Added Le Batard, "These bleeping fun suckers. Samson was playing the heel wrestling manager. No one would seriously wear that jacket. I was booing Samson before taking the mic from him. You don’t get the show."

Begs the question ... how many Marlins fans laughin' at this one??

Samuel L. Jackson Best. Birthday. Party. Ever. Celeb Friends EVERYWHERE!!!

12/17/2018 8:34 AM PST

Samuel L. Jackson practically had all of Hollywood under the same roof to celebrate his birthday ... the star-studded guest list was truly incredible.

Samuel doesn't turn 70 until Friday but he kicked things off over the weekend with a bunch of famous friends. The shindig went down Sunday night at Cipriani in NYC ... and the place was flooded with tons of celebrities -- LL Cool J, Cedric the Entertainer, Magic Johnson, George Lucas, Judge Judy, Whoopi Goldberg, Sugar Ray Leonard and Hall of Famer Dave Winfield are just some of the people who showed up to honor the legendary actor.

As if that list wasn't already impressive enough ... Stevie Wonder performed for the crowd and sang "Happy Birthday" to SLJ. Remember ... this was just the pre-birthday party. Imagine what Samuel's got in store this weekend. 

Offset Lookin' Like a Tired Zombie ... After Bday Weekend, Cardi Rejection

12/17/2018 6:59 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Offset looked like a dude who hadn't seen much sleep as he capped off his birthday weekend with a final club stop ... and it also seems like he had Cardi B on the brain.

We got the Migos rapper heading into the Argyle nightclub in Hollywood Sunday night -- day 3 of this birthday festivities -- and our photog tried peppering him with questions about Cardi and his failed attempt to publicly get her back during her Rolling Loud set. 

He stayed mum, but his face says a lot here ... I'M F***IN' TIRED, BRO!!! That's what we're seeing, anyway. Makes sense -- he's been partying since at least Friday.

Just the day before, he was covered in a diamond-crusted face mask and surrounded by his best pals at another venue ... this right after he'd ambushed his wife onstage. And, of course, Offset was also celebrating the day before that too (his actual birthday) ... rounding out the trifecta. 

As tired as he appears, we're gonna take a leap and say he might've also been feeling bummed about the Cardi sitch, for which he got dragged online after many folks accused him of hijacking her moment to selfishly satisfy his agenda ... begging for forgiveness. 

Second thoughts, mate?

Offset Masks His Face at Birthday Party ... After Bum-Rushing Cardi

12/16/2018 2:28 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Offset kept the party going after crashing Cardi B's set with a second birthday bash for himself, where he covered up his face ... but not in shame or anything. Quite the opposite. 

After ambushing Cardi's Rolling Loud set Saturday and begging for forgiveness -- which he didn't seem to receive in the moment -- the Migos MC rolled on over to the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in L.A. ... where he was decked out in all gold and a diamond-crusted face mask.

He seemed to be in good spirits too, underneath all the headgear -- showing nothing but smiles as he performed despite the awkward run-in he'd caused just hours earlier. 

If Offset was trying to shake off any bad vibes, he certainly had enough pals around to help him forget. Eyewitnesses tell us tons of other rappers were there celebrating with him -- Kodak Black, Rae Sremmurd, Lil Yachty and 21 Savage just to name a few.

And if the homies weren't enough, his label even gifted him a brand new Rolls Royce as part of the festivities. Funny enough ... Cardi gave him something similar last year.

It's like they say ... lucky at cars, unlucky in love. Or, something like that ...

Offset There's a Silver Lining ... To My Split with Cardi

12/15/2018 7:47 AM PST

Offset celebrated his 27th birthday in high, sparkling fashion ... and the prized present was clear to all.

Offset hit up Poppy in WeHo in the wee hours of Saturday ... wearing a Swarovski crystal mask were told cost around $11,000.  

The mask's designer, Laurel DeWitt, tells us it was handmade for the rapper, too.

You couldn't tell from what went down inside that Offset was still pining away for a reconciliation with Cardi B.   

But, earlier in the night he was begging for his wife to take him back. He makes it clear his birthday wish is forgiveness, after embarrassing Cardi B and breaking her heart.

Diddy Celebrates Birthdays of Twins and Kim

12/15/2018 7:27 AM PST

Diddy was all about celebrating his family Friday night ... the twins and his beloved Kim Porter.

Diddy threw an early birthday bash for his twins, D'Lila and Jessie, who will turn 12 on December 21. Waiting for the actual day would be dicey since people flee for the holidays.

The 80's-themed party looked awesome. It went down in L.A. at World on Wheels. The girls were dressed in neon outfits and Diddy was rocking a neon "Sean C" sweatshirt.

This has gotta be a tough time for the family. Kim Porter's birthday 48th birthday would have been Sunday. TMZ broke the story, Kim was found dead at her home last month. The L.A. County Coroner is still trying to determine cause of death.

Diddy paid tribute to Kim, declaring it Kim Porter Day WORLDWIDE.

We got Diddy and the girls coming in and leaving the party. They seemed in good spirits.

Happy birthday to all. 

Chris Pratt Wishes Katherine Happy Birthday ... Reveals Pet Name

12/13/2018 6:22 PM PST

Chris Pratt sending birthday love to his girlfriend, Katherine Schwarzenegger, was expected ... but he shocked us all by spilling the beans on his super cute nickname for her!!!

Chris posted an adorable bday message to Katherine on his Instagram, complete with a collage that screams #couplegoals ... but the thing that really caught our eye was the pet name, Chief. 

The social media equivalent of a birthday card reads, "Happy Birthday Chief! Your smile lights up the room. I've cherished our time together. Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love and care. 

It's interesting ... as best we can tell, this is the first time Chris has ever shared a pic of Katherine on his social media pages. They've been having tons of fun together since the summer, from family football games on Thanksgiving to PDA sessions at Disneyland ... and now it's social media-official.

Turns out, Chief isn't just a nickname for softball buddies ... celeb couples love it too! 

DJ Khaled & Fiancee Throw Joint Birthday Bash Watch How It's Done!!!

12/10/2018 11:04 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

DJ Khaled and his fiancée just upped their wrist game ... with watches worth over ONE HUNDRED STACKS!!!

The famous hitmaker and Nicole Tuck always throw joint birthday parties this time of year. He turned 43 on November 26 but Nicole just turned 43 on Friday ... prompting a huge shindig thrown by Haute Living Saturday night at the Perez Art Museum in Miami for a 60-person dinner with friends and family.

While at dinner, they were surprised with these incredibly insane watches. Khaled rocked a Roger Dubuis Excalibur automatic skeleton pave. That watch runs around $106k. Nicole got a Roger Dubuis Velvet Caviar watch ... worth about $53k.

Khaled now has nearly a handful of $100k watches floating around his house. Remember, he got this sick timepiece for his 41st birthday. And, last year, Nicole commissioned Haute Living to make this watch laced with more than 600 diamonds. That one was for their son, Asahd, who was celebrating turning 1 ... sippy cups be damned. 

The dual bday bash later moved over to LIV nightclub where Ciroc was flowing for Khaled's celeb pals ... including Swizz Beatz, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, Young Jeezy and Fabolous. We're told CIROC Black Raspberry was the drink of choice at the bash and was flowing all night.

Nipsey Hussle Throws Punches in Massive Brawl ... Security Pulls Taser Gun

12/10/2018 9:01 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

9:40 AM PT -- Sources close to Nipsey tell us the men he was fighting first attacked him because they thought he was someone else. We're told the men accused Nipsey of starting a fight earlier in the night inside the club, but Nipsey had nothing to do with it. The whole thing was started as a result of mistaken identity and Nipsey was only defending himself. Nipsey Hussle was smack in the middle of a crazy clash where punches were thrown and tasers were pulled ... all on the heels of celebrating Nipsey's GF's birthday.

The intense melee went down late Sunday night in the parking lot of Nightingale in WeHo. You can see the Grammy-nominated rapper and his crew throw haymakers with a couple of guys that had confronted them earlier that evening.

We got the rapper and his GF, Lauren London, arriving at the club. O.T. Genasis was also there and it was shortly after that when our camera catches the first face-off ... it's at the very end of the clip. Less than an hour later, the brawl started.

You can see Nipsey in the middle of it all ... throwing several punches as valet workers scurry to get away from the chaos. Nipsey eventually cools down but things quickly escalate again. Moments later, someone -- presumably security -- pulls out a taser and things finally de-escalate.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... cops showed up to the scene but everyone involved had already left. No arrests were made.

Nipsey's no stranger to getting physical. He slapped a guy earlier this summer outside the BET Awards. Nightingale's no stranger to fights, either. There was a brutal beatdown outside the club just over a year ago.

12/4/2018 4:32 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

MC Hammer had a special treat for the 50th birthday of Oakland's one-time "crack king" -- a performance that pumped up the party, and proved Hammer's moves are still fire.

The legendary rapper dropped in for the Bay Area gig to help convicted drug dealer Darryl Reed celebrate the big 5-0 last weekend. MCH danced and rapped his hit, "Pumps and a Bump" with the same tireless effort as he had back in '94.

Still 2 legit, for sure.

Folks inside the bash at Yoshi's jazz club in Oak Town tell us Hammer surprised everyone right after they finished singing 'Happy Birthday' to Darryl.

He did a couple songs -- not 'Can't Touch This' -- took some photos and bounced.

Pretty swaggy celebration for Darryl, who got out of prison in 2016. He served 26 years of a 35-year prison sentence before President Obama granted him clemency.

Kathy Hilton Paris Will Walk Down the Aisle ... Eventually, Maybe, Riiiight?

12/1/2018 10:29 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kathy Hilton says she's sure her daughter won't live out her days single-and-ready-to-mingle ... but, honestly, she doesn't really seem THAT sure.

We got Paris' mom and dad leaving Mr Chow in Beverly Hills Friday night, and Kathy's all decked out in purple and gold pom poms. She and Rick were leaving Billy Idol's birthday party ... yeah, it's cool being rich and famous.

Anyway, even though the engagement's off between Paris and Chris Zylka, Kathy's got nothing but nice things to say about the guy ... and tells us she stays out of their business. 

But, we had to ask ... do Paris' parents think their girl will ever be a bride? Rick believes he'll walk her down the aisle someday, but Kathy ... might need a little more convincing.

As we reported ... Paris broke up with her fiance last month, but there were some red flags before that ... like when Kathy told us Paris was too busy to set a date. And, As far as we know, Paris still has the $2 million engagement ring Chris gave her ... but he wants it back.

Tekashi69 Hey Babe, Sorry I'm in Jail Here's A Rolex!!!

11/29/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi 6ix9ine is making sure his girlfriend is well taken care of while he's in a federal holding cell ... surprising her with some super pricey bling on her birthday ... TMZ has learned.

Tekashi's GF, Jade, celebrated her 22nd Tuesday night in NYC with all her family and friends who aren't facing federal indictments -- but her BF still managed to hook her up with a 41mm Rolex DateJust ... blinged out, of course.

Sources close to the rapper tell us Tekashi picked out the piece several weeks ago, and customized it with 18k white and rose gold and 24 carats worth of VS diamonds. In total, we're told it set Tekashi back around $35,000 -- a drop in the bucket, especially considering how "Dummy Boy" has blown up since then.

The watch was hand-delivered to Jade by celeb jeweler JimmyBoi on Tekashi's behalf. She posted a pic of herself with it, saying, "Thank you baby :) your the best even when your not around." 

TMZ broke the story ... Tekashi was arrested by federal agents on gun, drug and racketeering charges. He remains in custody and his lawyer's still working on getting him out on bail. His trial isn't scheduled to start until September.

As for the watch ... good thing Tekashi isn't a last-minute gift shopper. Remember, he had a feeling the feds were closing in on him shortly before his arrest. 

Kevin Hart Defends 'Cowboys & Indians' Party ... It Was Not Racist!!

11/28/2018 10:26 AM PST

Kevin Hart is firing back at critics who slammed his decision to throw his son a "Cowboys and Indians" party on Thanksgiving, because the comedian doesn't see anything racially insensitive about it. 

Kevin weighed in on the controversy on his SiriusXM show "Straight from the Hart," shutting down critics who felt the Native American-inspired clothing was culturally inappropriate and offensive.

Kevin says the backlash is "dumb s**t," because it shows "how stupid our world is becoming with opinions." 

Kevin says there was nothing malicious about the theme -- as he points out, the NFL's Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins played on national TV the same day -- and the idea came from movies and games that have been around for years. He says kids played "Cowboys and Indians" when he was growing up, so he disagrees with people who think the outfits perpetuated racial slurs. 

As for his NFL defense ... Kevin's ignoring the fact many people have issues with the Washington DC team's name. 

The party controversy started on Thanksgiving, when Kevin's wife Eniko posted an Instagram picture from Kenzo's first birthday bash, showing attendees dressed in traditional Native American garb. Many of Kevin and Eniko's followers called it shameful and ignorant.

Followers be damned ... Kevin strongly disagrees.
