Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Settlement Negotiations Full Steam Ahead

9/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0920-angelina-jolie-brad-pitt-tmz-02Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been in the throes of settlement negotiations almost from the start ... but it got rocky early on when Brad pulled the plug ... sources familiar with the case tell TMZ.

Our sources say both sides wanted a quick end to what could become a contentious divorce. Jolie set the stage by asking for sole physical custody after Brad lunged and made contact with 15-year-old Maddox on a private jet.

We're told when TMZ broke the story about the incident in the air, Brad felt Angelina's people leaked the story and said he was done negotiating. But our sources say shortly thereafter, negotiations resumed. 

We're told there are 4 elements to the settlement discussions:

-- Custody and visitation

-- Temporary support for Angelina and the kids 

-- Permanent financial support

-- Property split 

We're told the first 2 items are well on their way to resolution, with one big hitch. TMZ broke the story ... the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services is investigating the jet incident, and any settlement must conform to the eventual DCFS recommendations.

Our sources say the 3rd and 4th elements have not been resolved.

Chris Brown Accuser Pageant Struts to Chris' Hit Song!

9/30/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The woman who claims Chris Brown pulled a gun on her got a hysterical assist from Breezy in her quest to win a beauty pageant.

Baylee Curran was a contestant in the Miss Greater Inland Empire Pageant -- it's a prelim for Miss California -- and when it came time for the evening gown competition last weekend, she got a sweet and serendipitous surprise.

The DJ had a great sense of humor because he threw on CB's "Don't Wake Me Up." Watch the video ... you gotta laugh.

0929_Baylee-Curan-pageant-bikini-CREDIT-Pageant-Videos-2The pageant director tells TMZ the song choice was purely a coincidence. People in the audience say it didn't appear Baylee noticed, but she was upset about something else.

We're told she didn't even place in the competition, so she stormed out early. Still a better exit than the one she made at Chris' house.

  

Tyga Beware the Repo Man ... This Time for His Mama's Ride!

9/30/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0929-tyga-TMZ-01Tyga's about to have a new battle with an old foe -- the repo man -- and this time his poor mother could end up suffering.

A woman in Orange County has filed docs against the rapper claiming she acted as a middleman on a Range Rover lease for Tyga's mom. The woman says Tyga started missing payments on the whip ... and she's ready to report it stolen if he doesn't buck up. 

We know ... you and Kylie Jenner have heard this story before.

The Range is far from standard -- it's a loaded Evoque, with a sticker price around $60k. We're told Tyga's payments come in at about $1k a month ... when he makes 'em, that is.

Tyga's lawyer, Shawn Holley, tells us the rapper's put together a totally new team of top accountants, business managers and attorneys to help clear up some issues that came up when he didn't have legit representation. We're told they're working around the clock to pay his debts and make sure he won't ever be taken advantage of again.

'Bachelor' Nick Viall Drops Anchor For One-On-One Date

9/30/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0929-Nick-Viall-Danielle-tmzGet ready to judge Nick Viall's skills as the new 'Bachelor' -- we got the first photos and videos of him on a one-on-one date, and it looks like he just might avoid becoming a 4 time loser.

We got Nick in action with a blonde named Danielle. He's shooting the 21st season of the show right now, and this date went down Monday night in an entertainment area called Balboa Fun Zone in Newport Beach, CA.

The couple made a flashy arrival by boat with their names in lights. After that low-key entrance they rode a Ferris wheel, then sat down for a candlelit dinner. To make things really romantic, production hired 3 off-duty cops -- for about $1,500 -- to keep away curious fans.

Unclear if Danielle scored a rose or if Nick simply scored ... but dude needs a slump buster. He already struck out twice on "The Bachelorette" and once on "Bachelor in Paradise."

Blac Chyna Sends Out Rob's Number ... Now No More 'Bitches' Can Text Him

9/29/2016 8:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Blac Chyna just pulled the ultimate move to ensure Rob Kardashian won't have any more "bitches" texting him ... blasting out his number to millions of people.

Chyna posted a tweet Thursday night giving the world her soon-to-be hubby/baby daddy's digits -- and by the looks of things -- Rob's in on it. Chyna also posted a video with Rob explaining her move ... saying too many old chicks keep texting Rob, so the best way to get rid of them is to force him to change it.

0929-blac-chyna-tweet

You'll remember, Rob posted Kylie's number earlier this week after a baby shower planned by his sisters took a nasty turn.

You can hear Rob's phone blowing up with texts in the background of Chyna's video, so it's safe to say he'll be getting it changed VERY quickly. 

Talk about a bold, but effective, strategy.

Gladys Knight My Son Tried to Blackmail Me With Medical Information

9/29/2016 3:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0929-gladys-knight-shanga-hankerson-tmz-facebook-01Gladys Knight says her son stooped so low in their legal battle, he attempted to extort his own mother if she didn't cut him a break.

The R & B legend has been fighting Shanga Hankerson over the chicken & waffles joints that bear her name in the Atlanta area -- and when he didn't respond to the lawsuit, the clerk entered a default victory for Gladys.

According to docs, Gladys says Shanga's lawyer reached out and put a metaphorical gun to her head: give us more time to respond to the lawsuit, or we'll go public with your Alzheimer's diagnosis.

Gladys didn't give in, and then her own flesh and blood filed legal docs that indeed alluded to some form of dementia because, as they put it ... she had a "lack of mental capacity."

Now she's firing back -- denying the ailment and accusing her son of trying to "embarrass and harass" her. Gladys wants to keep the default in place, but Shanga's fighting to get it overturned.

Kylie Jenner Leaked Phone Number Off Limits ... For a Whole Year!

9/29/2016 12:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928-kylie-jenner-getty-02Kylie Jenner's phone number was shut down after Rob Kardashian leaked it -- and it won't be up for grabs again 'til next September ... TMZ has learned. 

A rep for Verizon -- where Kylie had her phone plan -- tells us it's going beyond its usual policy of reassigning a disconnected number after 50 days. In this case, they're jumping straight to their max period ... one full year.  

We broke the story ... Rob leaked Kylie's number Monday night after a baby shower mishap. As a shot to Kylie, who he apparently thought was to blame, he tweeted her digits for the world to see.

Verizon tells us they're quick to change a number if a customer complains about getting unwanted or harassing calls or texts. Kylie isn't getting any special treatment ... she just meets that criteria. Now they've moved to take it down and out of circulation for 12 months.  

Meanwhile, you shouldn't waste your time trying to call Kylie ... her hotline won't bling.
