Madison Beer Stops BottleRock Concert After Shooter Scare from Crowd

5/26/2019 12:28 PM PDT

Madison Beer cut her mid-day concert short after a gun scare erupted in the crowd beneath her -- which ended with the removal of a guy who's now banned from the premises.

It all went down Saturday evening at the BottleRock festival in Napa, CA -- where Madison was in  the middle of performing Radiohead's "Creep," when she abruptly stopped her crooning and ran over to the side stage in a panic after seeing something in the crowd.

In video of the incident, you can hear Madison frantically talking to her stage handlers, saying ... "What is going on? Yo, yo, everyone pay attention. What's going on?!" She then turns to the audience and tells them to back up, seemingly warning them of something happening on the ground.

The video then starts to shake, but it briefly captures what appears to be an older gentleman in a green coat wandering about in an area that seems to be closed off near the front of the stage, with no one else around him. People start to freak out and flee the scene ... reacting to what many perceived as a possible shooter situation. 

Further video shows police offers escorting the same guy away in handcuffs. 

Napa Police later clarified what exactly had happened, saying cops responded to a disturbance and booted the guy they identified as the responsible party. NPD says no weapons were actually involved, and that there was no active threat to the community.  

It's unclear what the guy might've done to scare Madison like that, but whatever it was ... it clearly rattled her and her fans. Madison's mom later posted about it, saying it's sad we live in a world where concert-goers can't enjoy themselves without looking over their shoulder.

Ditto that.

DaBaby Stop F***in' With Me, Dammit!!! Warning Shot After Mall Beatdown

5/26/2019 11:26 AM PDT

DaBaby has a message for folks who want to keep testing him -- STOP ... or you will get your ass kicked. He ain't lying ... two dudes in two weekends kinda proves his point.

The NC rapper posted a video Sunday after what appeared to be another vicious beating he was involved in -- either directly or indirectly -- down in Charlotte the day before. It sounds like a warning shot of sorts to would-be future hecklers who wanna harass him. 

People should take note ... DaBaby isn't afraid to engage, whether cops are called or not.

On Saturday, an edited clip made its way around the Internet in which a guy spots DaBaby inside a Louis Vuitton store at SouthPark mall ... with him proceeding to heckle the rapper from afar. The video then cuts to DaBaby's POV, with him inching closer and closer to the fan. 

Eventually, a brawl erupts on camera. It appears three people are involved in the scuffle ... but as the edited video cuts to the next shot, you see the heckler on the ground bleeding from his nose and his pants around his ankles. DaBaby takes credit for the beating.

It's unclear if DaBaby actually handled the dude himself -- we doubt it, he's got a security team after all -- but it doesn't really matter. Point is, DaBaby and co. WILL attack. 

Remember last weekend -- a guy was beaten to a pulp after insisting on a pic with DaBaby ... which led to his security team stepping in and pounding the dude's face in ... leaving him in a coma afterward and on the verge of death, according to his ma.

We've reached out to local authorities to see if a police report was taken for this latest incident ... so far, no word back. 

50 Cent Someone's Painting Me as a Snitch ... 'Henchman' Report is Fake, Feds Say

5/26/2019 1:00 AM PDT

Someone really wants you to believe 50 Cent went crying to the cops about Jimmy Henchman back in the day, but a report that name drops him is complete BS ... according to officials who know the case inside and out.

Here's the sitch -- a document purporting to be a "Report of Investigation" by the U.S. Dept. of Justice's DEA Office has been circulating for a while that cites 50 as having called the feds in 2009 to tip them off to ex-music mogul, James Rosemond -- aka Jimmy H.

At the time, Jimmy was believed to be linked to the murder of 50's pal, Lodi Mack ... who allegedly beat up Jimmy's 14-year-old son in the streets of NYC. Jimmy was eventually charged and convicted for the murder -- prosecutors say he hired guys to kill Lodi.

Welp ... it would appear someone wants to paint 50 as a good, old-fashioned rat, 'cause the report's been making the rounds on the Internet and in newsrooms.

In the doc, it says 50 called in anonymously at first to say the cops should be looking into Jimmy as a possible suspect for Lodi's murder ... and allegedly went on to tell cops that he was afraid for his own life in the aftermath. The doc says 50 told cops he'd cooperate with the investigation

Thing is ... we've been told the document is a complete fake. Law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of Lodi and Jimmy's case tell us ... the alleged report was never taken, and 50 was never recorded as having talked to officers working on the matter at the time.

Funny enough ... 50's known for calling out real-life snitches, like Tekashi 6ix9ine, who he savagely roasted on social media upon news that Tekashi had cut a deal with the feds by diming out his associates in his racketeering case.

Oh, the irony.

Travis Barker Throws Daughter Epic Birthday Bash ... Drops Over 6 Figures!!!

5/26/2019 12:50 AM PDT

It's good to be one of Travis Barker's kids ... he pulled out all the stops for his daughter's birthday party, throwing an EPIC rager for hundreds of her friends with special appearances by tons of celebs!!!

Alabama Luella Barker, daughter of the Blink-182 drummer and former Miss USA Shanna Moakler, turns 14 Christmas Eve ... but she usually opts for an early birthday party in May, and Daddy always comes through with a blowout bash at his Calabasas estate!!!

This year, Travis opened up his doors to 350 of Alabama's closest pals, including Machine Gun Kelly, Goody GraceShaquille O'neal's kids, The Game's son and Floyd Mayweather's son ... and they were treated to live performances from Trippie Redd and Comethazine!

Travis ain't cutting any corners for his pride and joy ... we're told he dropped well over six figures to ensure everything was up to snuff ... even hiring the same stage and lighting companies that Blink-182 tours with, making sure the backyard concert totally ROCKED!!!

Travis loves doing the most for his kids ... when his son, Landon, turned 14, Travis organized a massive party and got Lil Pump to rock the house. 

But, this night was all about Alabama ... and ya gotta see her expression when Dad brings out a huge birthday cake. What's a girl to wish for when she's got everything?!?

Jordyn Woods London's Sure More Welcoming than Calabasas

5/26/2019 7:05 AM PDT

Jordyn Woods and her mother, Elizabeth, surfaced for the first time since Kylie Jenner said her former BFF really "f***** up."

Jordyn and Elizabeth were leaving a London hotel Saturday night, looking kinda stoic. The Kardashian sisters went in on Jordyn in a big way for the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" promo. It was emotional and sure felt real.

Kylie recently let Jordyn back into her guesthouse to move out her belongings, which seems to be the final chapter, at least for now. 

Jordyn's been in London several times recently to promote her Eylure lash line. She's also hawking a clothing line.

Life goes on. 

Post Malone Hey Country Fans, Get Off Lil Nas X's Ass!!!

5/26/2019 6:56 AM PDT

Post Malone thinks country fans need to calm the f*** down and stop bitching about Lil Nas X not having country cred.

We got Post Saturday night leaving Wally's in Bev Hills and asked him about the big stick over "Old Town Road," where Lil Nas X gives a strategic shout out to Wrangler jeans. Some country fans think (A) Wranglers are exclusively country so he shouldn't be a pitchman, and (B) he's not country at all.

Post makes solid points ... (A) country singers, like Sam Hunt, rap and that's no big deal, and (B) Wranglers have never been the exclusive domain for country fans.

As for who has the last laugh, "Old Town Road" has been numero uno for 7 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100.

George Foreman I Love Muhammad Ali ... Wish I Woulda Kicked His Ass!!!

5/26/2019 12:40 AM PDT

George Foreman says he loves, admires, respects and reveres Muhammad Ali ... but still wishes he'd have KICKED HIS ASS when they fought in the Rumble in the Jungle back in '74.

The whole world knows Ali knocked Foreman out in Zaire, one of the biggest, most improbable, and inspiring upsets in sports history.

It's easy to argue that victory was ESSENTIAL for Ali's legacy and that Foreman played a pivotal role in history by LOSING. Sooooo, is there even a little, tiny part of Foreman that's happy he lost? HELL NO.

"I'm so happy, especially about that right eye that was swollen for two weeks. Not to mention I hit my head on the canvas. Who could be happy about something like that?"

Foreman said all of that with his trademark smile, but you can clearly see he derives NO JOY in being the biggest victory in Ali's insanely remarkable career, but still gave props where props are due.

"Muhammad beat me ... he flat-out, outsmarted me and beat me."

Pretty hard to outsmart a guy that made almost $200 million on a kitchen grill ... Ali really was a beast, RIP.

Dr. Paul Nassif To Artie Lange Clean Yourself Up ... I'll Fix Your Nose on 'Botched'

5/26/2019 12:30 AM PDT

Dr. Paul Nassif wants to hook Artie Lange up with a nose job on his reality TV show ... if the comedian can kick his drug habit. 

We talked to the "Botched" star about Artie's seriously deformed honker ... and the Bev Hills plastic surgeon tells us he's happy to offer his services to Artie -- but he's gotta stay clean. 

Artie was arrested this past week in New Jersey for violating his drug probation, and his sad mug shot shows just how much damage's been done to his nose. The former Howard Stern sidekick recently tested positive for cocaine and morphine

Nassif tells us Artie's got saddle nose, a deformity caused by trauma to the septum. The doc says the condition is common with drug abusers, and cocaine is the main culprit. 

While he wants to get Artie on "Botched" so he can go under the knife ... Nassif says Artie's gotta stop putting drugs up his nose for good, because if he doesn't ... his nose will collapse again and it will look even worse.

Check out the clip ... Nassif makes his pitch to get Artie some help.

Master P & Romeo Offer Zion Williamson Movie Role ... And $20 Million Shoe Deal

5/26/2019 12:20 AM PDT

Zion Williamson hasn't set foot on an NBA court yet and he already has a shoe and movie deal offer, courtesy of Master P and Romeo. 

... but only if Zion actually comes to New Orleans.

We got the father-son duo out in Los Angeles, and they told us they have a role all carved out for Zion in the sequel to their comedy flick "I Got The Hook-Up 2," which comes out in July.

"I have a beautiful idea, we need to get Zion in 'I Got The Hook-Up 3.'"

The movie features Jeezy, Michael Blackson, A.J. Johnson, D.C. Young Fly, Jennifer Lee and a host of others -- and P and Romeo want Zion.

But, that wasn't all ... P had another offer for Williamson from his shoe company, MoneYatti.

"I know Zion gonna get a big shoe deal from Nike or Adidas or whatever. We gonna get him a deal just to have to wear shoes outside of basketball."

Question is, how much is P willing to pay?

"Just to wear it on the side, not in the game, I'm saying $20 [million]."

You heard it, $20 million shoe deal plus a movie role, all if Zion ends up in New Orleans -- which has the #1 overall pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. 

That gumbo starting to smell good yet?

Elton John Good Genes or Good Docs?

5/26/2019 12:01 AM PDT

Elton John has some legendary looks!

Here is a 31-year-old version of the singer and songwriter, who has had three albums inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame, looking dapper at the premiere party for the film "Grease" in New York City back in 1978 (left) and 41 years later ... The now 72-year-old award-winning artist -- Who is the father of two sons along with his partner David Furnish -- was dressed to the nines at the premiere of his music biopic "Rocketman", starring "Kingsman" actor Taron Egerton as Elton John, in London, England earlier this week (right). 

These looks will be around for a long long time! 

The question is ...

Meek Mill Threatened with Arrest at Vegas' Cosmo Hotel ... Claims Racism

5/25/2019 5:30 PM PDT

5:25 PM PT -- TMZ has just obtained a demand letter written by Meek's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, to the Cosmopolitan. Tacopina writes, "... we have learned that the Cosmopolitan maintains a list of African American recording artists who should be denied access for no other reason than than their culture and skin color. Such course of conduct constitutes discrimination per se, in violation of state and federal law, and exposes you to significant monetary damages."

The letter goes on -- "...we urge you to promptly issue an apology to Mr. Williams and grant him immediate access.  In the event you fail to heed this one and only warning, we intend to pursue all legal recourse against you." 

Meek Mill was just told to get the hell away from the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas -- and that if he didn't leave ... he'd be arrested and locked up.

The Philly rapper and 2 members of his security rolled up to the Cosmo at around 3:30 PM PT Saturday when they were stopped by security. You see in this video ... security was not about to let Meek inside the hotel.

Our sources say Meek asked the guard why he couldn't come in, saying he didn't do anything untoward in the past -- he had only been there once before, with Nicki Minaj for a Jay-Z event 5 years ago.

Security made it clear ... if Meek got out of the car, he'd be arrested. Meek, who was there to see a  DJ Mustard show, continued to ask why he was being denied, but the guard said, "I don't know why."

Meek's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, tells TMZ, the head of security made it clear -- the decision to ban Meek came from above ... the security chief said, "This comes from way higher up than me."

Tacopina says he spoke with someone whom he says is "a well-placed person inside the hotel" ... whom Tacopina says told him a group of hotels have tried to keep rappers out of the hotels. Tacopina claims it's racially motivated, saying, "They wouldn't ban Vanilla Ice."

Meek himself addressed the altercation on social media, writing in part ... "Cosmopolitan hotel/casino going to extreme racist levels to keep too many black entertainers and black people .... they said they gone lock me up." 

He added, "Some of these casinos have a bunch of Tatics to keep the level of blacks down .... but love to take our money!!!! This happens to a lot of black entertainers not just me either!!"

We've reached out to the Cosmopolitan for clarification on why Meek was denied entry ... so far, no word back.

Quentin Tarantino 'Snap' This ... Stogie Life After Cannes Dust-Up

5/25/2019 1:49 PM PDT

Quentin Tarantino just snapped at the Cannes Film Festival again -- and by that, we mean snapping open a lighter and burning a mean-looking cigar after some bad press this week.

The veteran director was spotted hanging out solo Saturday on Nikki Beach in the South of France, where he was enjoying the final day of the festival after debuting his newest flick, "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," a few days earlier. 

Eyewitnesses say Tarantino was minding his business while he sucked down the stogie. We're told he had a glass in his hand too, but it's unclear if or what he might've been drinking. More importantly, he looks totally relaxed despite a testy exchange he got into Wednesday.

After the 'OUATIH' screening, QT and the rest of the main cast -- including Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio -- hit the podium to answer questions from the media. One reporter noted Margot Robbie's character -- Sharon Tate -- didn't have very many lines throughout the film, and asked why that came to be.

Quentin answered curtly, "Well, I just reject your hypotheses" ... and didn't elaborate any further. Margot did though, saying she thought she was able to accurately capture Sharon's essence without much dialogue ... and was happy with the challenge of doing so.

It's interesting ... Quentin was widely characterized as having "snapped" at the reporter who asked the tough question, but it doesn't look like he's sweating it one bit days later.

'Once Upon a Time' hits theaters this July.
