Stormy Daniels Refuses to Strip!!! Claims Club Owner Used Homophobic Slur

12/9/2018 8:07 AM PST
Breaking News

Stormy Daniels is taking a stand -- which could lead to another lawsuit -- against a strip club owner who she claims hurled a homophobic slur at her assistant.

President Trump's nemesis, (one of his many), was supposed to perform at a Sunrise, FL club called Goldfinger ... but instead, she just gave 'em the finger in this photo -- and ripped the owner for allegedly calling her right-hand man a "f**king f****t."

She also claims the owner asked her to "do something not in my contract." She announced on social media she wouldn't perform ... and set off a war with the club. The owner fired back on IG, denying the incident and claiming she had broken her contract.

In her closing shot at the club owner, Stormy made a not-so-subtle reference to her Trump war, saying ... "When are dips**ts gonna learn that I do not respond well to bullies?"

Paging, Michael Avenatti?

Amy Schumer Posts Puking Vid ... This Pregnancy Thing is Great!!!

12/8/2018 10:35 AM PST

Amy Schumer is deep into her second trimester, and she's sharing all the joy and beauty that comes with expecting one's first child ... JK she's barfing in a public bathroom.

The comedian shared this unpleasant video Saturday morning, saying she "thought it might be fun" to see her throwing up ... so she set up the camera and proceeded to toss her cookies.

Amy says she had to throw up in a public restroom Friday too ... then did a show 90 minutes afterward.

Pregnancy's been a bitch for Schumer to say the least ... she was hospitalized last month for hyperemesis and says she's been even iller during trimester #2 than the first.

Fortunately, she made a full recovery after the last complication and was back to performing days later, but it looks like she's still dealing with more BS that comes with being pregnant than most.

Babies certainly are a blessing ... but ya gotta feel bad for Amy.

Kevin Hart Steps Down as Host of Oscars 'I Sincerely Apologize to The LGBTQ Community'

12/6/2018 9:17 PM PST

9:13 PM PT -- Kevin just announced he will no longer host the show, saying, "I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscar's....this is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past."

A post shared by Kevin Hart (@kevinhart4real) on

He continues, "I'm sorry that I hurt people.. I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart.  Much love & appreciation to the Academy.  I hope we can meet again."Kevin Hart is firing back at critics who think he's unfit to host the Oscars due to old tweets that were extremely homophobic ... and by firing back, we mean he's laying in bed and refusing to apologize. 

Kevin says in an Instagram video, the hateful response to his old tweets illustrates just how PC-crazy our world has become ... and he says he's not going to let the haters bring him down.

 

As Kevin put it -- in a video he shot with his head still on a pillow -- he's approaching 40 and it's stupid for people to think his views haven't evolved. Basically, he's claiming he's more mature than he was when he was gay-bashing on Twitter -- including using the f-word several times. 

The Academy announced this week that Kevin would host next year's Oscars, and the backlash began almost immediately.

Scott Eastwood Close Encounters of the Orca Kind ... Maybe Too Close?

12/6/2018 7:03 AM PST

Scott Eastwood had a very up close and personal run-in with a couple killer whales while paddle boarding down in Mexico -- and while it's incredible to see ... it's also kinda scary.

Clint Eastwood's son posted a video of himself out in the waters of Baja California Sur, where he says he and a pal stopped for lunch before paddling out to sea after hearing some orcas in the water.

Scott says they thought the wild beasts had disappeared by the time they got out there -- but, apparently, some whale noises and splashing around made 2 orcas circle back ... and, boy, did they get close. Check out the clip -- Scott and co. could've touched 'em if they wanted.

It's a majestic scene for sure, but ya gotta wonder how risky the dip with the whales really was. While orcas aren't known to attack humans ... it's always a possibility they could.

Worth it? Scott sure seems to think so.

Offset's Alleged Mistress I'm Sorry, Cardi B ... I'm So Ashamed!!!

12/5/2018 3:49 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The woman with whom Offset allegedly cheated -- not long before Cardi B gave birth -- says she's remorseful, and tells TMZ ... she never wanted to be a homewrecker.

Summer Bunni cried openly while telling us how guilty she feels after word got out her hooking up with Cardi's husband might have been a catalyst in the couple's split. SB is the woman Offset allegedly asked to arrange a threesome that would include rapper Cuban Doll.

Summer tells us she hasn't messed with Offset since Cardi had their baby, Kulture, but still feels ashamed for playing any role in breaking up their marriage. She insists she didn't know how serious Offset and Cardi were -- which seems absurd. They were married!

Bunni hasn't spoken directly to Cardi, but she tried to deliver an apology through us, and says she hopes the estranged couple will reconcile.

As we reported, Cardi says she and her "baby daddy" are still friends, but the love is gone.

Cardi B & Offset Cheating Rumors Swirl Amid Split ... He Wanted a Non-Cardi 3-Way???

12/5/2018 12:23 PM PST

The timing of Cardi B's shocking announcement that she and Offset had split is interesting, because it came shortly after alleged text messages leaked showing he was looking for a threesome ... and not with her.

As we reported ... Cardi revealed the rappers -- who wed last year and had a kid together in July -- have been trying to work things out for a long time but decided to call it quits. She says they're still friends and biz partners ... but are no longer in love.

The reason for the lost love is now a topic of speculation ... being fueled by texts Offset allegedly sent to a woman who goes by Summer Bunni asking her to hook up a ménage à trois with another female rapper, Cuban Doll.

The scandalous leak -- which sources tell us was orchestrated by another woman who had a falling out with Cuban -- also included a photo of a FaceTime convo with Offset.

Oh yeah, and Offset's texts appear to be from June 28 ... just a couple weeks before Cardi gave birth to their daughter, Kulture.

So far, neither Cardi nor Offset have addressed the cheating allegations, but as we reported ... he commented on Cardi's video announcing their split with "Y'all won."

Still unclear who y'all is ... or what they won.

12/3/2018 10:02 AM PST

Pete Davidson's frustrations with online trolls have reached peak level ... he's putting them on blast and says no matter how many times they tell him to ... he won't kill himself.

The 'SNL' star says he just couldn't keep quiet any longer about the constant harassment he's been getting since he and Ariana Grande started dating.

He says he's been getting bullied online and in public for the last 9 months but doesn't say in what regard, and clearly it's taken a toll on him.

A post shared by Pete Davidson (@petedavidson) on

His IG post comes a day after we reported Ariana had her Pete-inspired tattoo wiped from her foot. It was replaced with a tattoo that's a tribute to her ex, Mac Miller.

It also comes just days after Ariana apologized to Pete in her "Thank U, Next" music vid ... saying, "Sry I dipped."

As you know ... Ariana and Pete broke their engagement back in October. They had only been dating for a few weeks before he proposed to her. 

Halsey Slams Victoria's Secret Exec ... No Place for Transphobia!!!

12/3/2018 7:58 AM PST

Halsey's making it clear, just because she appeared in the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show ... she's still pissed off about one of its execs disregard for the LGBTQ community.

The singer, who performed in the VS Show, blasted the show as it was airing Sunday night. She called out Ed Razek, the chief marketing officer for VS's parent company. 

Last month in Vogue, he was asked about having transgender models in the show and said ... "No, I don't think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It's a 42-minute entertainment special. That's what it is."

Halsey's IG post slammed VS for "a lack of inclusivity" ... and added she stands in solidarity with the trans community.

For his part, Razek apologized and walked back his comment, as soon as the backlash began. He said, "To be clear, we absolutely would cast a transgender model for the show."

Razek added, "We've had transgender models come to castings. And like many others, they didn't make it. But it was never about gender. I admire and respect their journey to embrace who they really are."

Halsey seems to want action, not words.

Drake Scores Victory Over Woman Making False Pregnancy, Rape Claims

11/30/2018 4:02 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Drake is coming out on top in his lawsuit against the woman he says falsely claimed he got her pregnant, accused him of rape and tried to extort him ... TMZ has learned.

Drake filed docs Friday alerting the court that he and Layla Lace have resolved their legal battle. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Layla has agreed she will not republish her April 17, 2017 Instagram post where she first made the pregnancy claim. She wrote, "So I guess still in this era this is the new thing that after you tell a dude you pregnant they stop answering they phone!!!"

@Shade45 #streetsweeperradio sits down with #LaylaLace the woman alledgelly pregnant by Drake. #jazziebelletv

A post shared by Jazzie Belle💋 (@jazziebelletv) on

Layla also went on a SiriusXM show in 2017 to blast Drake. Later she went to authorities in NY to allege Drake raped her during a one-night stand. Drake says her lawyer then demanded money or they'd go public with the rape allegation.

As TMZ first reported, that prompted Drake to sue her for civil extortion, defamation and fraud. 

That's all water under the bridge now, provided Layla sticks to the deal, which further requires she make no "statements alleging or insinuating that [Drake] assaulted her," got her pregnant and abandoned her ... or say anything else disparaging about him.

She also can't use any 3rd party to do any of the above. 

Celebrity attorney Larry Stein, who's repping Drake, tells TMZ ... "The filing made by Drake against Layla Lace has been resolved, with Layla avoiding going to trial by agreeing to a stipulated judgment which prohibits her from repeating past statements she made against Drake.  Drake and his team are satisfied with this outcome and while Drake appreciates the support he has received, he asks that his fans and the media allow both parties to move on with their lives"

The judge still needs to sign off.

50 Cent I Wouldn't Care ... If My Son Got Hit By A Bus

11/30/2018 10:08 AM PST

6:05 PM PT -- 50 just walked his words back a bit, saying, "I have no ill will towards anyone living on this Earth. The people Shaniquois son looks up to and associates with is a reflection of the negative energy he embraces towards me. I paid his mother $1,360,000 in support to afford him opportunities I never had. They just spent it, over the years I repeated get a job now they have to figure it out."

50 Cent's clearly not going for any "Father of the Year" awards ... by making it known he'd be just fine if his oldest son got injured, possibly even killed, by a bus.

Fif left the shockingly cruel comment on an Instagram pic of his 21-year-old son Marquise Jackson hanging out with the son of Supreme McGriff -- one of 50's rivals.

The rapper wrote ... "if both these little n****s got hit by a bus, I wouldn't have a bad day."

Damn.

The bad blood between father and son goes back several years, stemming from the bitter relationship between 50 and Marquise's mother, Shaniqua Tompkins, who sued the rapper for $50 mil. The suit was tossed in 2009.

Since then, Fiddy and Marquise have taken shots at each other publicly on social media and in their music ... and Marquise told us last year his dad's music sucks.

As for the hate for the other guy in the photo ... it presumably comes from 50 Cent's longstanding beef with his father, Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff. The 2 are archenemies, and Griff -- a former Ja Rule and Irv Gotti associate -- allegedly once plotted to kill 50. Supreme is currently serving a life sentence for murder conspiracy and drug trafficking.

We're told 50's never met McGriff's son though ... and even Marquise didn't know the full backstory when he took the photo with him.

Mariah Carey All I Want for Xmas is ... For My Twins to Nail These Backup Vocals!!!

11/29/2018 7:03 AM PST

If this isn't the most Mariah Carey move of all time we don't know what is ... 'cause teaching her twins backup vocals is pretty legendary. 

Mariah put Moroccan and Monroe to work Wednesday night, teaching them the backup vocals to her 1994 classic "All I Want For Christmas Is You." You can tell the kids have listened to this song once or twice ... they jump on cue when the song starts.

Roc and Roe -- as Mariah's dubbed them -- are definitely into this. You can see Moroccan crack his fingers and dab before putting in some work. Mariah kicks things off before the kiddos jump in with their I's and O's.

Mariah says the kids have been practicing the vocals ... and bravo, 'cause they nailed it.

Moral of the story ... never too early to put your kids to work. JK ... it's about family QT or whatever.

EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande has been teasing fans and celebs alike to the point of torture with snippets from her "Thank U, Next" music video without a release date ... but now we know when it's gonna drop.

Sources close to Ariana tell us the project is set to debut Friday. The music video will highlight 4 female-driven films that have special meaning to Ariana. The movies include "Bring It On," "Mean Girls," "Legally Blonde" and "13 Going on 30."

Our sources say the music video will also feature a cameo from one of the Kardashian sisters, who we are told will bust a move for the cameras.

A teaser released for the project Monday night featured actors from "Mean Girls" -- including Jonathan Bennett -- as well as singer Troye Sivan ... so it's likely Friday's release will include several more celebs.

Ari fans were surprised to see Gabi DeMartino -- a YouTuber who has made a career off of spoofing the singer -- in the video. However, our Grande sources say Ariana actually enjoys the impressions and wanted to extend an olive branch to Gabi by inviting her on the project.

It's not just Ariana fans who have been bitten by the "Thank U, Next" video bug ... stars like Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Khalid and Normani have all blown the preview up too ... with comments like "This is so fire," "Yooooooo" and "yes pls give ur fans what we need." 

The fans will get it Friday.

Tyga LiLo Didn't Get A Taste ... She's Just Thirsty

11/26/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lindsay Lohan shooting her shot at Tyga over social media was just another case of internet thirst, because we're told the two don't have a history. 

Friends of Lindsay and Tyga tell TMZ ... the "Taste" rapper has never met Lindsay, and has no plans to do so, despite LiLo sliding into his Instagram comments with a thirsty reply to Tyga's most recent selfie. 

Lindsay replied to Tyga's post with the name of his hit song, sending the internet into a frenzy, but we're told it's nothing more than a textbook example of IG thirsting. 

Tyga's 13.8 million followers jumped on LiLo's comment with most encouraging her to shoot her shot, but it turns out the two don't have any connection in real life. 

Sorry, Lindsay, ya gotta do more than drop a thirsty reply to get a taste ... he's kinda got a thing for strippers.
