Chris Brown Denies 'Bulls***' with Soulja Boy ... Karrueche Too?

2/21/2017 12:58 PM PST
Breaking News

Chris Brown is strongly denying something, but it's unclear if he's talking about his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran claiming he's making death threats, or about Soulja Boy -- either way, Chris looks rough around the edges.

Brown told his fans, "Make sure y'all don't be listening to all this bulls***." He never says Karrueche's name, but he could be referring to the story TMZ broke -- Karrueche getting a restraining order against him.

He also explains why he pulled out of the Soulja Boy boxing match -- blaming it on "homies" getting in the way -- and seems to challenge Soulja's crew to come get him.

What's clear is Chris has massive dark circles around his eyes, and seems to be in desperate need of some sleep.

Milo Yiannopoulos Resigns from Breitbart Over Pedophilia Comments

Breaking News

0221-milo-yiannopoulos-getty-01Milo Yiannopoulos -- controversial Senior Editor at Breitbart News -- is leaving the company over recently unearthed comments he made about pedophilia.

Milo announced his resignation Tuesday, saying ... "I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues' important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart ... This decision is mine alone."

He also thanked Breitbart for standing by him, and contributing to his success. 

His resignation comes on the heels of Larry Wilmore going in on him on Bill Maher's show last week -- you'll recall the "Go f*** yourself" line. Right after that ... the interviews surfaced where he made remarks many interpreted as defending pedophilia.

In one convo with Joe Rogan, Milo seems to condone adults having sex with teenagers. He's since apologized and denied condoning child abuse in any way.

Chris Brown Karrueche Gets Restraining Order He Threatened to Kill Me

2/21/2017 10:08 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-chris-brown-karrueche-tran-TMZ-01Chris Brown has been ordered to stay clear of ex-GF Karrueche Tran, after she filed legal docs saying he vowed to kill her and he's beaten her up before ... TMZ has learned.

Karrueche claims in a sworn statement to the judge, earlier this month Chris "told a few people that he was going to kill me." She then says Chris told the friends if he can't have her then no one else can, threatening he was going to "take me out" and "threatened to shoot me."

Karrueche also says several years ago Chris "punched me in my stomach twice," and "pushed me down the stairs." This would have been during the time Chris was on probation for the Rihanna beating.

The legal docs also claim Chris has threatened to harm her friends and even recently threw a drink at one of them.

She worries he's now putting action behind his words, and that's why she got the restraining order.

A few weeks ago Chris posted this video, which tracks with Karrueche's claim Chris was telling friends if he couldn't have her no one could.

The domestic violence restraining order requires Chris to stay 100 yards away from Karrueche, her mom and her brother.  

We reached out multiple times to Chris' rep ... so far no word back.

Keshia Knight Pulliam's Ex Judge, I Am the Father! But Don't Make Me Pay Yet

EXCLUSIVE

0221-keisha-knight-pulliam-ed-hartwell-tmz-getty-02Keshia Knight Pulliam's ex has finally copped to being her baby daddy ... but he doesn't want to start paying for their kid just yet.

Ed Hartwell filed new docs in his pending divorce from the former TV star, and admits he's their newborn daughter's dad ... as results from his long-awaited paternity test proved.

Here's the thing though ... Ed says he shouldn't have to start shelling out dough yet -- at least not until a court decides exactly how much he should pay in child support.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Ed says he's not buying Keshia's claim she needs emergency financial support, because they both have deep pockets. Plus, he says she's not considering his own expenses in setting up a nursery for the kid at his place.

0221-mike-epps-TMZ-02Mike Epps got busted for a casino beatdown in New Orleans, and he no-showed for his arraignment Tuesday morning.

Epps and a friend allegedly attacked a guy in the Harrah's Casino around 4 AM Saturday. The alleged victim says he was walking through the casino when he spotted the comedian and said, "Oh, Mike Epps" ... according to The Advocate.

The man claims Epps and his friend started hitting him in the face. He ducked and covered until casino security came and called police. Epps and the friend, Thomas Cobb, were reportedly arrested for battery, and released on $1,000 bail.

There's a warrant out for his arrest now for skipping his arraignment.

We've reached out to Mike's reps ... but no word back yet.

Ronda Rousey RETURNS TO ACTING ... Guest Role On 'Blindspot'

2/21/2017 11:18 AM PST
Breaking News

0221-ronda-rousey-blind-spot-TMZ-01Ronda Rousey's back ... to acting! 

The UFC legend scored herself a guest role on the hit NBC show "Blindspot" -- where she'll play a tough prison inmate who's serving time for transporting weapons across state lines. 

A rep for the show tells TMZ Sports the episode is scheduled to air in early May.

We're told her episode has NOT been shot yet but will be done in the near future. So, no, this didn't clash with her training for the Amanda Nunes fight. 

Ronda has not made an official decision on whether she'll fight again -- but most people think she's likely done after losing her last 2 fights.

This is a big deal for Ronda -- if she crushes the "Blindspot" gig, it could lead to bigger and better things outside the Octagon.

Robin Thicke Paula Patton Cries Technical Foul In Custody War

EXCLUSIVE

0221-paula-patton-robin-thicke-TMZ-01Robin Thicke has just lost his main lawyer in his custody war with Paula Patton, because a lawyer who worked in the firm that once represented Paula now works at the firm that represents Robin.

Robin has been represented by attorney Larry Ginsberg, a partner at Harris, Ginsberg. A law firm that once represented Paula in the custody fight employed a lawyer who jumped ship and moved over to Harris, Ginsberg.

During a court hearing Tuesday, Larry Ginsberg made it clear ... the lawyer in question has no involvement in the Patton/Thicke case, but the judge felt there was always the chance of water cooler talk so Ginsberg is now off the case.

We're told Robin still has legal representation from other firms in a war that continues to rage.

Alex Trebek Drops Bars on 'Jeopardy!' I'll Take 'Let's Rap' For $200

2/21/2017 8:51 AM PST

It's debatable, but Alex Trebek might've just announced the best "Jeopardy!" category of his career ... at the expense of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and Kanye West.

The category was "Let's Rap, Kids" and Trebek had to repeat lyrics from the rappers' hits. It's hilarious ... especially when he had to drop Desiigner's banger, "Panda."

Alex even gets in a Kanye jab too. New rap beef brewing? Trebek's diss track would kill.

Tom Brady QB's Camp Made the Call On $500k Jersey Value ... Cops Say

2/21/2017 8:33 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-tom-brady-getty-01

Tom Brady -- or someone in his camp -- came up with the $500,000 value for the QB's missing Super Bowl jersey ... this according to the Houston PD. 

TMZ Sports spoke with an HPD rep who tells us the $500k value listed on the police report was NOT determined by some fancy police property assessor ... it's the complainant who offers up the number.

In this case, the complainant on the report is Tom Brady ... and a Houston PD spokesperson tells us it was either Tom "or one of his people" who gave the $500k figure.

We're told if/when someone is arrested, the PD will kick the case over to the DA’s office which will work on determining its real worth.

Cops also note that if Brady filed an insurance claim, the insurance company would also tap their own people to assess the value.

For the record, the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 spoke with Rick Harrison from "Pawn Stars" who said the value is closer to $200k.

Inflategate, anyone?
