Kanye & Kim K To Drake ... DON'T THREATEN OUR FAMILY

12/14/2018 8:37 AM PST
Exclusive Details

8:05 AM PT -- We just got Kanye out in NYC, and he's a LOT less chatty than he was Thursday night on Twitter. We asked him about the threats Drake made and he flashed us a big smile before sprinting to his car. 

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian claim Drake has threatened to hurt their family -- and they're warning the rapper that if anything happens ... there will be hell to pay. 

Long story short ... Kanye claims Drake called him on the phone Thursday and threatened physical harm. 

"You threatened the safety of me and my family," Kanye posted on Twitter ... adding, "Never threaten north saint and Chicago’s dad bro."

Kim Kardashian entered the fray at 2:30 AM on Friday morning -- saying, "Drake Never threaten my husband or our family. He paved the way for there to be a Drake."

She added, "My husband is the most brilliant person, the most genius person that I know. He has broken so many boundaries, everything from music, stage design, fashion and culture and will continue to change the world."

So, how did this whole thing start?

Kanye posted a screenshot of his phone on Thursday that allegedly showed that someone from Drakes's team had reached out to clear one of Ye's songs for a project. 

Kanye was upset because Drake has taken shots at him in various tracks recently -- yet still reached out to use his music -- and Kanye felt Drake was being a fraud. 

Then, the Twitter storm began ... with Kanye going off on his issues with Drake. 

"Been trying to meet with you for 6 months bro," Kanye said ... " You sneak dissing on [Travis Scott] records and texting [Kris Jenner] talking bout how’s the family."

Kanye says Drake eventually called him to talk Thursday night -- but it didn't go well.

 

"Drake called trying to threatened me." 

Kanye then issued this warning -- "So drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect. So cut the tough talk."

Kanye said Drake is running around like he's 2Pac with no regard for human life or Kanye's family and acting like he's a hardcore gangster. 

"You trying to be a bully. I never been bullied in my life and I never will be.  That’s why I made it this far in a pink polo."

Despite the anger, Kanye tried to issue an olive branch at one point -- "I’m Ye bro Remember that I love you I would never intentionally hurt you That’s what I’ve been saying to you."

"You would be so sad if anything ever happened to me."

"I’m up for talking. We need to show all of these fans that black men can@talk without someone ending up dead or in jail."

"You are disrespectful to all people with mental health conditions so this is an opportunity for growth."

Drake hasn't said much publicly -- only posting some emojis on Instagram showing some crying/laughing faces. 

Kanye has seemingly calmed down and is now at a meeting at J.P. Morgan Chase and Co. 

Guessing this situation ain't going away any time soon. 

Stay tuned ... 

JWoww Gets Estranged Husband Booted from House ... He Says She's Lying & Out of Control

12/14/2018 8:35 AM PST
Breaking News

8:35 AM PT -- Snooki posted surveillance video recorded in JWoww and Roger's home, showing JWoww speaking to police. The audio is low, but from what we can make out ... Jenni is making the point to officers that she wants Roger to be able to see their kids.

She flat-out says, "He should be allowed to see them ... He's not a bad dad."

The officer tells Jenni she's going to have to make that distinction -- keeping Roger away from her, but not the kids -- to a judge when she gets a court hearing in 3-7 days.

JWoww's estranged husband is out on his ass after cops hauled him out of their home early Friday morning ... for absolutely no reason, he claims, other than Jenni blowing things out of proportion.

Roger Mathews says the 'Jersey Shore' star got a restraining order against him late Thursday night after they had what he calls a "disagreement." Roger got his side of the story out quickly by recording a video -- from the back of the police car -- describing the night's events.

Roger claims JWoww got "completely, uncontrollably emotional like she always does" and threatened to call cops -- but he went to police first to file a report, preemptively informing them about their argument. 

He says he went home, went to sleep and was awakened by cops at 2:30 AM ... telling him he had to get out of the house due to the restraining order. Roger wasn't arrested, cops just drove him to a friend's home. 

Roger continued pouring out his emotions from the friend's couch, and ripped into Jenni for not being able to see their 2 kids. He claims she exposed them to their fight, saying things like ... "Your father's a piece of s**t, he's out of here. I'm sorry I ever had children with him."

He maintains he did nothing wrong, and Jenni was so out of control he feared she would beat herself up and accuse him of abuse.

Remember, JWoww filed for divorce back in September ... but Roger said he wasn't giving up, and wanted to save the marriage. That seems like a tall order now.

We got Sarah outside of Craig's Thursday night and wanted her take on Nick Cannon dragging her name in the Kevin Hart controversy. ICYMI ... Nick was furious about the backlash Kevin got after old homophobic tweets resulted in him stepping down from his dream gig as host of the Oscars.

So, Nick dug up some old tweets by Sarah, Chelsea Handler and Amy Schumer in which they used similar language. Point blank ... Nick thinks there's a serious double standard in Hollywood.

Sarah's planning to address Nick's comments on her own platform, but she did say she sees things differently than she did back in the day. 

But, Sarah made a solid point ... people shouldn't try to bully comics.

"Now, we have to pray everything goes well," Mutombo says. 

Dikembe has helped hundreds of thousands of people through the hospitals he's built in Africa -- but says Matadi is a special situation and has really touched his heart.

12/14 8:50 AM PT -- According to court records, Pump and his manager entered a not guilty plea through their attorney.

12/14 6:50 AM PT 
-- Law enforcement sources now confirm Pump's story. The baggage handlers who were putting luggage in the baggage compartment smelled a strong odor of weed coming from a bag labeled Garcia -- Pump's government name. The captain then went to Pump and the rapper felt the pilot was being accusatory. The pilot eventually kicked Pump and his manager off the plane for being disruptive and it continued to get contentious in the terminal when cops were talking to them, so both were arrested for disorderly conduct. The bag, which was owned by a member of Pump's crew, was opened and NO DRUGS were inside. 

6:15 PM PT -- A source connected with Pump tells TMZ, no drugs were found. The source says TSA flagged a bag that smelled like weed and was "mistagged."  Agents questioned Pump, who insisted he was not carrying drugs. The source adds no drugs were found in the bag, which another person in Pump's crew said was his. Pump was arrested along with his manager because they allegedly became disorderly during the argument with TSA agents.

Lil Pump's flight to L.A. was cut short -- as in, he never got off the ground because TSA allegedly found drugs in his luggage ... TMZ has learned.

Pump was flying from Miami Thursday afternoon, and our sources say he and his crew had all boarded the flight, but before it pushed back from the gate ... a flight attendant told them there was a problem.

We're told Pump and co. were booted off the flight, and cops met them in the terminal to question Pump about what 2 airline sources said were drugs found in a checked bag with his name on it.

The flight was delayed over an hour, and we're told cops are talking to Pump right now.

Nicki Minaj New BF Racked Up Violations While Doing Hard Time

12/14/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj's new beau is the ultimate bad boy -- and has been for quite some time, including while he was behind bars.

Kenneth Petty's inmate disciplinary history, obtained by TMZ, shows Nicki's BF was written up 18 times from 2006 to 2013 while he was serving time for a manslaughter conviction in New York.

Some of Petty's violations were major -- he got slapped with 2 violent conduct violations in 2010 for threats and fighting. Before that, he also racked up another fighting violation, and 5 violations for disobeying a direct order.

He got off to a ROUGH start too ... just one day after he entered the prison he got tagged for creating a disturbance.

There was also a 2009 incident where he was cited for 9 separate violations, and got 4 months in solitary as punishment. Mostly though ... he lost phone, recreation and commissary privileges for bad behavior.

As you know, Minaj's BF was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in 1995 when he was 16. He served almost 4 years for that ... before the 2006 manslaughter conviction.

Still, the man did his time ... and our Nicki sources say she believes Kenny -- an old flame from Queens -- has changed, and she's happier than she's been in years.

EXCLUSIVE

Pauly D is doubling down in his love for Jersey by committing to another 2 years of melting your face off with epic tunes.

Sources tell us that PD -- who, if you've forgotten, is a world-renowned DJ -- has struck a deal with Caesars Entertainment to continue his residency at The Pool After Dark at Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City ... where he's been behind the turntables since first signing with them in 2012. 

The extension is for two years, and we're told it's valued in the 7 figures. There's more ... Pauly is signing up for 16 shows total -- 8 in 2019, and another 8 in 2020.

Pauly tells us ... "The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort continues to be 'the' place in Atlantic City to party." He adds ... "I could not be more excited to continue the tradition of providing guests an unforgettable experience. The past six years have been surreal and I couldn’t have asked for a better family than Caesars Entertainment."

It's kinda perfect timing for Pauly, seeing how MTV just reportedly renewed "Jersey Shore Family Vacation" for a third season following season 2's strong ratings.
