Kim Richards

Arrest Puts Her On

'RHOBH' Chopping Block

4/19/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards Real Housewives Of Beverly HillsIf you don't see Kim Richards on the next season of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" it'll be because of her drunken arrest earlier this week ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to production tell us producers feel Kim's substance abuse issues make her a liability. There are insurance issues with the show, and serious concerns that if something happens to Kim, Bravo could be on the hook for keeping her on such a contentious, demanding show. 

We're told a decision has not been made, but the alarm has been sounded and there's serious discussion about giving Kim the ax.

Here's where there's a split. Some production sources says Kim's substance abuse problem has been in full bloom all season. Several members of the cast and crew say they've watched Kim present a public picture of sobriety, but when the cameras are off she goes off the rails.

But other production sources tell us Kim actually did better this season in the sobriety department than she's done in years. They also think it's hypocritical for Bravo to turn it's back on Kim now ... they say if she was such a problem she shouldn't have been exploited all year.

The show still has a few months before production starts back up again, so producers have some time to make their final decision.

EXCLUSIVE

Mackenzie McKee Marriage"Teen Mom" star Mackenzie McKee may have wrecked more than her car last month when she drove it into a ditch ... because hubby Josh just 86d her ring and walked out for good.

Sources close to the couple say their two year marriage has been on the rocks for a while. The breaking point was when Mackenzie crashed her uninsured, new Kia Sorento. 301 Shakes stepped up and threw her $10k to cover the damage, but it wasn't enough for Josh.

They had a huge blowout last weekend, Josh said he was done, threw her ring in the toilet and stormed out.

When Mackenzie came on TMZ Live, there were warning signs ... she said she crashed because she was out searching for his "no good huntin' hog ass."

If things do go down divorce road ... it won't be too costly, we're told the ring cost $398.

Or in "Teen Mom" terms: about 22 cases of Natty Light.

Dead Wrestler's Dad

Sues the WWE

Pay Up If You're Gonna Exploit My Son

EXCLUSIVE

Eddie Hot Stuff Gilbert Family Sues WWEThe WWE is cashing in on Eddie "Hot Stuff" Gilbert even though he's been dead for 20 years ... at least according to his family, which is dragging the league to court to get a cut of the action.

According to docs ... Eddie's dad, Tommy Gilbert, is in charge of the estate and says the WWE is plastering his son's image and likeness all over TV and other media platforms without permission -- and, more importantly, without paying them a dime.

Tommy says old wrestling footage of Eddie -- a pro from '79 until his death of a heart attack in '95 -- is being used to promote the WWE. 

Interestingly, Eddie's fam isn't suing to block use of the footage -- they just want a judge to force the WWE to fork over a share of its profits, plus damages.

The WWE believes it has full clearance. A rep tells TMZ ... the org has purchased legal rights to use old footage from other wrestling groups -- such as ECW and WCW -- and as a result ... it expects this lawsuit to be dismissed.

Howard Teman, owner of the shop, says the whole thing only took about 15 minutes and cost $90, plus tip. He says Gillian was so touched by Michael's open letter because he's normally very shy.

Smooth move on both their parts. Guys -- read and learn.

A$AP Rocky

Slapee Now Slap Happy?

Concert Assault Case Settled

4/19/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

ASAP Rocky Settles Slap LawsuitA$AP Rocky has one less "F**kin' Problem" ... because the woman he allegedly bitch slapped during one of his shows has dropped her lawsuit.

TMZ broke the story ... Lisa Wade claimed the rapper smacked her in the face at a Philly concert in 2013, and filed filed a civil suit against him.

According to the new court docs though, they've settled the suit, and a judge dismissed it with prejudice -- meaning Wade can't turn around and sue again.

This usually means some money's changed hands -- either to the plaintiff or her lawyers (they tend to like getting paid) -- but details of the settlement are being kept under wraps.

Now they can both pretend this never happened.

L.A. Kings superstar Jarret Stoll -- boyfriend of Erin Andrews -- was arrested in Vegas on suspicion on drug possession ... for allegedly bringing cocaine and ecstasy to a Vegas pool party.

According to local reports, 32-year-old Stoll was busted Friday at the Wet Republic pool party at the MGM Grand.

Stoll was reportedly taken into custody by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. Unclear if Andrews was with him at the time.

Stoll was taken to Clark County Detention Center -- where he was booked. He was released on a $5,000 bail.

Stoll was clearly in Vegas to unwind after the Kings were eliminated from contention from the NHL playoffs. 

The Kings have issued a statement saying, "We are aware of police reports out of Clark County, Nevada regarding Jarret Stoll."

"Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation. While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time."

Suge Knight

Victim Says Rap Mogul

Threatened to Kill Him

4/18/2015 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight says he was scared for his life when he ran over 2 people, killing one, but according to the victim who lived, Suge was actually out for blood.

Cle Bone Sloan told police in an audio interview shortly after the fatal incident at Tam's parking lot in Compton, Suge told him point blank during the confrontation, "I'm gonna kill you."  Bone also says he saw Suge "reaching" for something, which he assumed was a gun.

TMZ first posted video of the incident, where you see Suge drive into the lot and Bone almost immediately attack him.  

Suge's lawyer is making a big deal out of the fact that Bone seemed to take responsibility for the death of Terry Carter.  But other portions of the audio seem to hurt Suge, to the extent Bone viewed him as lethal.

Sofia Vergara

I'm Not Having Nick's Baby

But I'm Not Destroying the Embryo

4/18/2015 7:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0418-sofia-vegara-nick-loeb-tmz-01Sofia Vergara had to make a tricky decision ... there's a fertilized egg sitting around that could produce a baby she doesn't want, but she doesn't want to anger  the "right to life" people by destroying it.

As TMZ reported, Sofia and then fiance Nick Loeb planned on having a baby together, which resulted in a fertilized egg being stored at a Beverly Hills reproductive facility.  Nick has filed a lawsuit, saying Sophia wants to destroy the embryo, but he wants the kid.

Sofia's lawyer told People, "Vergara has never suggested that she wished to have the embryos destroyed," adding, "She has always maintained that they be kept frozen."

It seems strange on the surface.  If she doesn't want the baby, why not destroy the embryo?

Sources close to Sofia tell TMZ, there is no way this baby will be born.  Sofia wants nothing to do with Nick and is about to marry Joe Manganiello.  The problem ... she doesn't want to piss off a lot of her fan base, which believes life is created at inception.

So we're told Sofia's solution is right in the contract, which says both parties have to agree to have the baby, and both sides have to agree to destroy the embryo.  She will agree to neither, which means the baby will not be born.

Zayn Malik

He Speaks!!! He Thanks 1D

And He's Asian!

4/18/2015 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Zayn Malik broke his silence Friday night -- come to think about it we haven't heard him speak before -- and he heaped praise on his former band, One Direction.

Zayn accepted a trophy at the Asian Awards in London.  The award was for Outstanding Achievement in Music.  Interesting, because it's the only award Zayn can accept independent of the band.  He's getting it because of his Pakistani heritage.

It sounds like there's no beef with the boys.

Zayn's speech seems heartfelt ... it's actually kinda sweet.
