Niecy Nash Read My Eyes, Omarosa!!! Ain't No 'Black Woman Civil War'

12/16/2017 9:41 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Niecy Nash's eyeballs are a lock for Hall of Shade after what they did to Omarosa.

When we saw Niecy at LAX Friday, we put her on the spot -- is she team Robin Roberts or team Omarosa? Y'know that they say about asking a silly question ... well, it wasn't true in this case.

Thank God we asked, otherwise we might have missed one of the greatest side-eye displays ever. Niecy knows all about Omarosa reportedly calling for a "black woman civil war" after Robin hit her with a "bye, Felicia" earlier this week. 

As for Omarosa making up with the black community post-Trump? Niecy's eyes tell no lies.

Stars and Scars You Be the Judge

Tupac's murder might be one huge step closer to being solved ... Omarosa's finally out of the White House, and Mario Batali's booted from "The Chew." So we gotta ask ...

NBA's Lorenzen Wright Ex-Wife Arrested, Charged for His Murder

exclusive mug shot

The ex-wife of slain NBA star Lorenzen Wright is locked up in Southern California ... after cops busted her in connection with his murder.

TMZ Sports got Sherra Wright's mug shot. The Riverside County Sheriff's Dept. busted her Friday evening on a fugitive warrant for murder -- which was issued in Tennessee. Memphis police have charged with 1st degree murder and conspiracy. 

Lorenzen -- who played 14 years in the NBA -- was murdered 7 years ago. His remains were found in the woods, 10 days after he was seen leaving Sherra's Tennessee home.

The case had gone cold until recently -- police found the murder weapon in a lake, and earlier this month arrested Billy Turner and charged him with 1st degree murder.

Police aren't saying yet what the alleged connection is between Turner and Lorenzen's ex-wife ... who is sitting in jail pending extradition to Tennessee.

She was also charged with criminal attempt to commit murder because police say there was a previous attempt on Lorenzen's life.

12/16/2017 8:44 AM PST

Looks like Jeremy Meeks is moving quickly -- the massive rock on his gf Chloe Green screams we're engaged.

The couple hasn't announced anything yet, but Chloe's left hand was weighed down Friday by a big ol' diamond during a Beverly Hills shopping spree.  

Chloe's Topshop billionaire dad, Sir Phillip Green, was in town too -- so it's possible the whole fam's coming together to celebrate.

TMZ broke the story ... Jeremy and his estranged wife, Melissa Meeks, are deep in divorce settlement talks. What's the big rush? You might be looking at it ... on Chloe's ring finger.

Christopher Plummer I Was the Right Man to Replace Spacey ... Let Me Tell You Why

12/16/2017 7:54 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Christopher Plummer has ice water in his veins when it comes to nailing a role -- which is why he says stepping in for Kevin Spacey in "All the Money in the World" was simple ... for him.

The acting legend was leaving Mr. Chow Friday night when we asked him how he pulled off shooting more than 20 scenes in 9 days ... with very little advance notice. His answer was basically -- ain't nothing but a thang. Except way more British and classy.

You'll recall, director Ridley Scott made the 11th hour decision to scrub Spacey after rape accusations surfaced, and he tapped CP for the role.

Plummer's already earned a Golden Globe nomination. You can see why in this clip. In the end, the movie's release was only pushed back 3 days ... to Christmas day.

Mario Batali Sorry for Sexual Misconduct ... Try the Cinnamon Rolls!!!

12/16/2017 7:07 AM PST

Mario Batali takes the cake -- or, in this case, pizza dough -- for most tone deaf response to sexual battery allegations.

Batali sent out an email blast Friday evening to his fans in which he acknowledged "some news coverage about some of my past behavior." Multiple women have accused the celeb chef of groping, exposing himself and other forms of sexual misconduct, and ABC canned him from "The Chew."

In the email, he apologized to fans and admitted, "My behavior was wrong and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility." But the cherry on top was the pizza dough cinnamon rolls.

Yes ... he ended the apology email with a recipe for a "holiday-inspired breakfast." 

Tupac Murder Weapon Should Be in L.A. ... Det. Says Vegas Rejected It

12/16/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The handgun cops say was used to kill Tupac Shakur -- which mysteriously disappeared 11 years ago -- should be in the hands of the L.A. Sheriff's Dept. ... according to the detective who was on the case.

TMZ broke the story -- the .40 caliber Glock was found in a Compton backyard in 1998, and according to docs, LASD Detective Timothy Brennan was the guy who ordered the ballistic testing which revealed it was used in Tupac's murder. 

Brennan, who's now retired, tells TMZ ... there should be NO mystery about where the gun is now ... IF everyone followed protocol. As Brennan recalls ... he gave the gun to ATF agents who conducted the testing. Once it came up a match, in a federal law enforcement database, he says ATF sent it to Las Vegas cops.

Now here's the rub. Brennan says law enforcement in Vegas didn't believe it was a match. He says he was never told why they reached that conclusion, but they rejected the weapon. Brennan says what should have happened next is the ATF to send it back to L.A. 

As we reported ... the document dug up by producers of A&E's "Who Killed Tupac?" says a federal prosecutor recommended the gun NOT be turned over to Vegas -- but Brennan insists it was.

He thinks the handgun is still in the custody of L.A. authorities, but if it's not ... someone may be pulling something shady.

Conor McGregor Forget Pacquiao ... I Want an MMA Fight Next!

12/16/2017 12:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sorry Pacquiao ... Conor McGregor says his putting his boxing career on hold for a bit -- because he wants his next bout to be a "real fight."

Conor was out with his baby mama Dee Devlin in NYC when he was asked about his fighting future -- and rumors he's hammering out a deal to box Manny Pacquiao

But McGregor shot that down real fast -- insulting the sweet science in the process ... saying, "I think a true right is what I want to do next."

He added, "MMA next."

The big question ... who's up first in the UFC? Nate Diaz? Tony Ferguson? Tyron Woodley??

One thing's for sure ... Conor ain't down with the WWE -- and had a short 4-letter word for Vince McMahon's company. 

Nelly She Lied ... Now I'll Sue Rape Accuser

12/16/2017 6:44 AM PST

Prosecutors are done with Nelly's alleged rape case, but he isn't -- he's vowing to sue the woman he says falsely accused him.

TMZ broke the story ... prosecutors in Washington State dropped the case this week, saying the accuser wasn't cooperating and therefore they couldn't proceed. Nelly's attorney Scott Rosenblum isn't surprised and tells us, "Nelly has suffered very real damage to his reputation. He has incurred economic loss and painfully has watched his family suffer. As a result Nelly is planning to proceed with litigation as the first step in restoring his reputation."

Rosenblum says Nelly recognizes real victims of sexual assault need to be heard, and adds that's why they're going after his accuser. "This type of reckless false allegation cannot be tolerated as it is an affront to the real survivors of sexual assault."

The accuser's attorney said her client only refused to testify because of the public pressure she faced after accusing a huge celeb was too much.

Taylor Swift Accused Butt Grabber Says She's No Hero for Taking a Stand

12/16/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift's not quite the hero TIME magazine made her out to be, because she didn't want to take the stand in the "butt grabbing" trial ... she was forced to do so, according to David Mueller.

Mueller, the accused butt grabber, thinks Taylor didn't deserve the Person of the Year cover because he's the one who sued her for getting him fired. Plus, he points out Taylor fought at every turn to keep the case out of the public eye -- and only showed up to testify when the judge ordered it. 

He thinks TIME was just trying to sell magazines, and overreached to connect Taylor to the nationwide flood of sexual assault victims coming forward.

He also explains the real reason why he paid Taylor with a $1 Sacagawea coin. As we reported ... Taylor won her counter suit against Mueller for sexual assault.

Kris Jenner I Own 'Momager' Now! With a Big Ol' BUT

12/16/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kris Jenner can now slap the word "momager" on just about everything except the very thing that made her a household name.

Kris just locked down the trademark for "momager" after a 2-year battle, but there's a giant caveat -- she agreed not to use it for any reality TV or web programming. 

Kris applied for this in 2015, but the trademark office blocked her, claiming the name was too similar to an existing trademark someone had for "momanger." According to new docs, Kris and the "momanger" folks settled the dispute in November.

So, if Kris gets a 'KUWTK' spin-off, her options for a catchy title just went down by one.
