Kanye West to Drake I Paved Your Way ... Don't Threaten Me or My Family Again

12/13/2018 7:41 PM PST
Breaking News

7:41 PM PT -- Kanye clearly had a lot more to say to Drake ... he just unleashed a Twitter-storm after revealing Drake called to threaten him earlier in the day. In the flurry of tweets, Kanye brought up Tekashi's prison time, XXXTentacion's murder and stated he paved the way for artists like Drake.

Kanye also issued a stern message to Drake ... "Never threaten north saint and Chicago's dad bro." Ye did, however, extend an olive branch, saying, "I’m Ye bro Remember that I love you I would never intentionally hurt you That’s what I’ve been saying to you"

Kanye says he only wants to talk to Drake ... and telling him, "You would be so sad if anything ever happened to me."

Some other tweets included ...

"You trying to be a bully. I never been bullied in my life and I never will be. That’s why I made it this far in a pink polo."

"I’m up for talking. We need to show all of these fans that black men can@talk without someone ending up dead or in jail."

"You are disrespectful to all people with mental health conditions so this is an opportunity for growth."

1:57 PM PT -- Drake just responded to the barrage of messages.

Kanye West is going after Drake hard for daring to ask for clearance on a sample -- before apologizing to Ye for dissing him on tracks ... and it appears playing hardball worked.

Ye revealed Thursday he got a text from his pal, Free ... who said Drake wanted to clear Kanye's song, "Say You Will." Our sources confirm the request was, in fact, sent by Drake's camp. 

Kanye did not sound like he was in a giving mood as he went off, saying he still hasn't gotten that apology he demanded from Drizzy a few months ago. He demanded he get it -- very publicly in the middle of the Tweet storm -- before he clears a damn thing.

Ye reminded Drake he wasn't the one who gave Pusha T the intel about Drake's son, and added ... "It’s all love bro bro but don’t play with me. You stay too close to be playing all these industry games bro" and followed up by saying ... "Sending purple emojis When I’m dealing with mental shit I need my apologies now Not through scooter either Not through Travis."

Kanye also claims that Drake has been sneaking diss records on Travis Scott collabs, and texting Kris Jenner to check up on the family. 

Seems like it worked, Kanye just tweeted, "Drake finally called. Mission accomplished." But, after all that he also says ... he's not clearing the sample. JK? 

Now, back to your regularly scheduled program.

Farrah Abraham to Bristol Palin You're Jealous of Me And You're a Wimp So Leave 'Teen Mom'!!!

12/13/2018 11:06 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham has sage advice for Bristol Palin -- leave "Teen Mom" if she can't handle how she's being portrayed ... as a Farrah wannabe.

We got Farrah out Thursday at LAX and she bristled at Bristol's verbal attack this week, when she blasted MTV ... "All they want with my little segment each week is some fake fill-in Farrah Abraham/Jerry Springer BS."

Bristol griped that the program fails to showcase her work ethic -- a single mother who juggles parenting 3 kids all by her lonesome.

Farrah -- who was initially shocked when MTV picked Bristol -- says it all boils down to 2 things ... she's not cut out for reality TV.  

Oh, thing 2 is jealousy. 

Tommy Lee Hugs it Out With Brandon ... I Love You, Son!!!

12/13/2018 6:56 AM PST

Tommy and Brandon Lee seem to have made up ... after an ugly 2018 between the father and son that began with Brandon knocking him out during an argument.

The Motley Crue drummer shared a photo around midnight of the 2 embracing, captioned simply ... "I love you son." Brandon also posted a video of his dad with him in the studio late Wednesday night ... it looked like they were having a good time.

It's unclear what led to the reconciliation, but it's quite a surprise considering the physical attack that went down in March followed by a criminal investigation ... and a nasty war of words.

As we reported ... the father-son beef culminated when Brandon coldcocked Tommy in the middle of the night, claiming it was self-defense because his dad was drunk. The knockout came on the heels of Tommy taking a shot at Brandon's mom, Pam Anderson, on social media.

Tommy shared a photo of his injuries after the knockout punch, saying he gave his kid everything and he still turned on him.

Cops launched a battery investigation after the incident, but the case was ultimately rejected by the D.A. because Tommy chose not to cooperate.

Still, the 2 continued to go at each other on social media -- especially on Father's Day -- suggesting they were far away from having a loving relationship again.

But, as they say ... time heals all wounds. Or, maybe Brandon just doesn't want to miss Tommy's upcoming wedding.

Christian Yelich I'll Squash Beef With Machado ... If He Joins Brewers!!

12/13/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Christian Yelich REALLY hated Manny Machado when the two played in the NLCS this fall ... but the MVP says he's willing to squash the beef under one condition.

IF MANNY SIGNS WITH THE BREWERS!!!

You'll remember ... Christian went off on Manny after the Dodgers star banged into Yelich's teammate at first base while running out a grounder in the October series ... callin' Manny "a dirty player."

"It's a dirty play by a dirty player," Yelich said at the time ... "That's what it is."

Fast forward to this week -- with the sweepstakes to land Manny in free agency at an all-time high -- and Christian was singin' a little bit of a different tune to TMZ Sports.

"Listen, emotions run high in those series, things happen," Yelich said at the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year ceremony at The Beverly Hilton in L.A.

"If we ended up crossing paths -- being on the same team again -- I'm sure we'd be able to work that out no problem."

Bad news for Yelich, Milwaukee and fans of beef-squashers?? Machado reportedly ain't interested in playin' for the Brew Crew.

Good news for Christian?? Seems Bryce Harper might be ... and Yelich told us all about how dope THAT would be!!!

Canelo Alvarez To Floyd ... Enough Talk, Let's Rematch!

12/12/2018 6:24 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Canelo Alvarez is sick of trading insults with Floyd Mayweather -- he wants to trade punches ... telling TMZ Sports the time has come for the two to finally get back in the ring. 

Just this week, Floyd trashed Canelo again -- saying he was an "old man" (at 36) when he beat Alvarez back in 2013 ... claiming Canelo was "some of the easiest work I had."

So, when we spoke with Alvarez on Tuesday, we asked if he had a response. 

"The truth is I have nothing to say to him," Canelo told us ... "He’s bothered and I don’t know why. In reality, he said he was old, but I was too young for that fight."

"Those are just arguments that he can have and that I can have as well. It looks like it’s getting to him."

Canelo says a rematch would not only be great for boxing, but also for Floyd's bank account -- the insinuation from Alvarez is Mayweather ain't exactly as rich as he claims to be.  

And, how would the rematch go? Much different than the first fight ... 

"I’m different now, I have more experience and more confidence in the ring and it would be a different result, I can assure you of that and it would be a better fight and I know that the public would walk away very happy from wherever in the world that they’re watching."

In the meantime, Canelo is gearing up to fight Rocky Fielding this weekend on DAZN -- and Fielding tells us he's ready for war. 

Safaree Samuels Over the Meek Beef ... Dude Has Matured

12/11/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

A lot has happened to Meek Mill since he allegedly sent goons to jump Safaree Samuels more than a year ago -- and that's exactly why Safaree says it's all water under the bridge.

Our Raquel Harper chopped it up with Nicki Minaj's ex about her other ex, Meek, whom Safaree accused of orchestrating the would-be jumping that went down during the BET Awards last summer ... which Meek, of course, denied

Welp, Safaree's changed his tune since then ... saying he's seen just how much Meek's been through and how much he's grown as a person since walking out of prison. He even tells Raq they were recently in the same vicinity and things were copacetic. 

Funny how petty stuff like ex-girlfriends and verbal jabs fall to the wayside when s**t gets real. Also ... time sure does fly, right? 

Catch Safaree's full interview on the newest episode of "Raq Rants" which airs Tuesday on BET at 11 PM. On the West Coast, if you have Dish or Direct TV, it's on at 8 PM.

Meghan Markle Dad Did Tell-All to Clear His Own Name ... Not to Bash Her

12/10/2018 3:06 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle's dad is catching flak for bringing up his daughter in a new interview -- but the tell-all was aimed at clearing his name, and not tarnishing hers ... TMZ has learned.

Friends of Thomas Markle tell us the interview he did with Daily Mail over the weekend was set up for the purpose of disproving false rumors he faked a heart attack earlier this year ... right before Meghan and Prince Harry got hitched.

Thomas revealed medical receipts for his heart surgery. As we first reported, he got 3 stents implanted. Our sources say Thomas keeps tabs on what people say about him on the Internet, and was offended to read haters claiming he faked the medical emergency.

Of course, while defending himself ... Thomas described Meghan as "demanding but never rude." He was attempting to squash British rumors about his daughter being difficult to deal with and feuding with Kate Middleton.

We're told he didn't intend to bash Meghan, and he doesn't want to say anything that could harm her. In fact, we're told that's why he's been under the radar for several months. 

Danielle Bregoli My Least Fave Celeb? Uh, Not Iggy ... She Doesn't Qualify

12/9/2018 11:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Bhad blood between Danielle Bregoli and Iggy Azalea just took another spill, 'cause the kid says Iggy can't be her least favorite celebrity ... as IA no longer fits the criteria. 

Bhad Bhabie -- who we'd like to remind everyone is a mere 15 years old -- was in Iggy's native land down under, answering questions from audience members, and one young lady asks who was on BB's s*** list in Hollywood. She delays with a very loud, " Right now?????"  ... and the crowd seemed to finish her thought by yelling out Iggy's name. Traitors!!!

Naturally, Danielle took the opportunity to throw major shade Iggy's way by saying, "That's not even really a celebrity." As you might imagine, the reaction was very much, "OHHHHH."

There's been no love lost between these two as of late -- and things have even gotten physical (on Danielle's end, anyway) after the teen rapper threw a drink at Iggy last month. The beef was stewing even before then, though ... BB dissed Iggy in song to kick off 2018.

Knowing all that, this might be the most disrespectful barb against Iggy. Listen to how Danielle refers to her -- "THAT" ... a pronoun often used for inanimate objects, not people.

Ouch, dude.

Deontay Wilder Floyd Mayweather Is A Jealous Hater ... I'm Boxing's New Star

12/8/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Deontay Wilder says Floyd Mayweather is a TBH ... THE BIGGEST HATER, claiming Floyd is seething mad that Wilder is the new big star in boxing, and Mayweather is yesterday's news.

We got Wilder out in L.A. just days after he and Tyson Fury put together the most entertaining draw in boxing history and he says, while the world was stoked on the fight, Floyd wasn't.

"They loved it, they loved every bit of it. The world loved it, and I don't think he liked that though. He wants all the attention on him, and it's sad that it's like that."

Deontay's logic is that he's a heavyweight, and the big guys are the ones fans REALLY want to see, so it's just a matter of time before he's at the top of the sport, and the old guys have to get used to it.

When we asked him if he'll ever make Floyd Mayweather money, he says it's definitely in the future for him, and once again, seems to take shots at Money.

"I'm coming, and it's a lot of fighters that's jealous of me for no reason. I've never said nothing bad about no one, I've always wished them well."

FYI -- Floyd was SUPER critical of the decision in the Fury fight, saying Tyson was robbed in the draw, but it's clear Wilder thinks that's not just Floyd's boxing mind talking, but his hater mind.

"Some fighters just don't want to see me make it."

A shame there's like 100 pounds separating these guys ... would be fun.

'Black Ink Crew: Chicago' Star Alleged Sucker Punch 'On Set' ... Cops Called

12/8/2018 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

A party for VH1's "Black Ink Crew: Chicago" turned violent when one of the stars got into a fight with a guest ... well, it wasn't much of a fight.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Junior Diaz got into a heated convo with someone during the party in Chicago. During the argument, we're told Junior called the other guy a bitch ... then immediately sucker punched him in the face. In the face!!!

When cops showed up at the Dec. 1 bash ... they found the punchee disoriented and bleeding from the mouth. He was transported to a hospital where he got stitched up. 

Our sources say the party was being shot for 'Black Ink' ... although it's unclear if cameras captured any of the fight. Remember, it didn't last that long. Two hits: Junior's punch, then the guy hitting the ground.  

We're told Junior had bounced when cops arrived, and witnesses weren't down to talk. 

We've reached out to VH1 ... so far, no word back. 

Cuban Doll To Cardi B & Offset What Threesome?!? Don't Blame Me For Split

12/7/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cuban Doll, the female rapper Offset allegedly tried to rope into a three-way with his supposed mistress, tells us she's definitely not at fault for his breakup with Cardi B

We got Cuban out Thursday night at Topanga Mall ... and she's adamant she NEVER hooked up with Offset, and never even spoken to CB's hubby.

The denials don't end there, because Cuban tells us she had no idea Offset was trying to have sex with her and says she wasn't even aware of his alleged threesome fantasy before it went public.

As we reported ... Cuban was thrust into the middle of Cardi and Offset's split after alleged text messages surfaced appearing to show Offset looking to set up a menage a trois with Cuban and his supposed sidepiece, Summer Bunni.

We broke the story ... Summer tearfully expressed remorse for hooking up with Offset not long before Cardi gave birth, but there's no crying coming from Cuban.

And, get this ... Cuban says Cardi recently reached out to her, and there's no beef between them.

Cardi B Offset's Fatal Mistake ... Chatting Up a Cardi Wannabe Rapper

12/6/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B knew Offset had a tendency to talk to side chicks, but the fact he apparently made a play for another female rapper, who's also Latina, hit way too close to home ... TMZ has learned.

Offset was linked to rapper Cuban Doll when his alleged text messages leaked. The messages were to a woman named Summer Bunni, and mentioned a possible threesome with CD. We're told those messages, released Monday, put Cardi over the edge ... and she pulled the plug.

Sources close to Cardi tell us the "Bodak Yellow" rapper wasn't just pissed about cheating, but potential cheating with a rapper, who some people think tries to copy Cardi's flow. Not well, though ... we gotta say.

For anyone thinking Cardi's bluffing just to scare Offset, we're told she seems deadly serious. It's not just a warning. As we reported, she shocked fans Tuesday night with the breakup video.

She followed that up by posting the first photo of their daughter, Kulture.

Offset and Cardi had jointly decided to keep their 5-month-old daughter out of the spotlight, partially for her safety.

We don't know that it was, but the decision to finally reveal Kulture -- right after the split -- kinda feels like a dig at Cardi's future ex-husband.   

Aaron Rodgers Making Peace with Parents After Nasty Public Feud

12/6/2018 7:26 AM PST
Breaking News

Seems the Rodgers Family Feud might FINALLY be coming to an end ... with Aaron Rodgers saying he spent his birthday with his parents!

Now, why is this a big deal? 

It was just last week that Aaron's brother, Jordan Rodgers (from 'Bachelorette'), blasted the QB on social media for not calling his mother while she was getting ready to evacuate during the California wildfires. 

But earlier this week, Aaron subtly let the media know that he spent time with his "folks" for his birthday over the weekend. 

Aaron was speaking with reporters about the firing of Packers head coach Mike McCarthy and he was asked what he was doing when he found out. 

That's when Aaron slickly dropped the info about the reconciliation with his parents. 

"I found out I’m sure the same way most of you found out. I was at home with my folks in town for my birthday.”

See that? HE WAS WITH HIS PARENTS!!!! 

Remember, this feud was so bad, they made a dramatic scene out of it during Jordan's hometown visit on "The Bachelorette" ... where they left an empty chair at the dinner table for Aaron, who refused to participate. 

Aaron's ex-girlfriend Olivia Munn said she had tried to get Aaron to speak with his parents years ago -- but things were too nasty. 

Glad to see they're taking steps to finally mend fences ...
