Donald Trump's Lawyer Fires Back at Stormy Daniels ... You Owe Us $20 Million!!!

3/16/2018 5:46 PM PDT
Breaking News

The legal battle between President Trump and Stormy Daniels is not going away anytime soon, because his lawyer's now accusing her of violating their deal ... which could cost her big bucks.

According to new legal docs ... Stormy agreed in the "hush" contract with Trump -- created by his attorney, Michael Cohen -- to fork over $1 million in damages if she breached it, per incident.

Cohen claims Stormy has indeed breached the agreement -- at least 20 times -- so he has the right to go after her for $20 million.

As we reported ... Stormy sued to try to get the "hush" pact tossed, claiming the Prez used an alias and never signed it in the first place. She also started a crowdfunding page to raise funds for her legal costs against Trump and his lawyers.

So far she's raised more than $171,000 from various donors ... and it looks like she might need every penny.

Tommy Lee No More Fat Lip After Fight with Son

3/16/2018 6:26 PM PDT

Tommy Lee still might not be over getting punched by his son ... but at least it looks like his face is back to normal.

The retired rock star was spotted out in Woodland Hills Friday -- with his fiancee Brittany Furlan -- for the first time since he was allegedly attacked by his son, Brandon, and left unconscious and bleeding on his bedroom floor. Tommy had a smoke in his car while Brittany hopped out with some paperwork.

We broke the story ... Tommy's looking to move forward with his criminal complaint against Brandon for battery -- at least for now.

As we reported ... Brandon insists he was acting in self-defense, claiming his dad was drunk and lunged at him during a heated argument over comments Tommy made about his mom, Pamela Anderson.

Tommy denies his drinking had anything to do with it.

Blac Chyna Lawyer Wants Judge to Make Her Talk About 2015 Car Crash

3/16/2018 5:36 PM PDT

Blac Chyna's been dodging and ducking her deposition about a 2015 car crash, and the plaintiffs' lawyer has had enough and wants to make her talk ... according to new legal docs.

Jon Teller, the attorney for the plaintiffs in the 2015 crash with Chyna's white BMW, claims they've been trying to interview her for 9 months now ... but she has canceled or failed to appear for her scheduled deposition at least FOUR times now.

Teller says they've been trying to work with Chyna reasonably but have been "stymied" at every stage ... so now he's asking a judge to step in and order Chyna to get grilled. According to the docs ... he also wants the judge to slap her with sanctions in the amount of $4,560 for her actions. 

As we reported ... Chyna was scheduled to talk about her involvement -- or possible lack thereof -- in the 2015 hit-and-run case in October, but we now know it never happened.

As far as the crash goes -- Chyna's friend, Paige Addison, told cops she was behind the wheel and BC was not in the car. Paige was charged with felony hit-and-run ... but Teller believes Chyna was there too.

The civil trial against Chyna and Addison is set for June, so clearly ... Teller wants to question BC ASAP.

We reached out to Chyna ... she had no comment.

Rapper Logic Splits With Wife ... Divorce Looms

3/16/2018 2:10 PM PDT

Logic and his wife, social media star and singer Jessica Andrea, have split after two years of marriage ... TMZ has learned. 

The couple married in October of 2015 when the rapper was just 25 years old. It's unclear exactly when the two called it quits, but they hit the red carpet together in January at the Grammys. Logic was nominated for two awards -- including Song of the Year for "1-800-273-8255."

Hints of trouble between the couple first surfaced on Instagram when fans noticed Jessica unfollowed Logic ... he still follows her. 

We're told neither has officially filed divorce docs, but reconciliation doesn't seem likely. Our sources say the home they purchased together last year is about to hit the market. 

They don't have any children.

Wu-Tang Clan Sued '60s Group Says 'People Say' is a Rip-Off

3/16/2018 2:38 PM PDT

The Wu-Tang Clan ripped off an old soul song and used it in its 2017 hit "People Say" ... so say 3 musicians in a new lawsuit.

The trio known as The Diplomats in the '50s and '60s claims Mathematics, a producer for the Wu-Tang Clan, jacked the melody, lyrics and rhythm of their 1969 track, "I've Got the Kind of Love." According to the docs ... "People Say" is a prominent lyric from their song.

The Diplomats claims many fans and ordinary listeners have noticed the similarities between the tunes and have even pointed them out online.

According to the docs ... The Diplomats say they never gave permission to use their music, so they want the rap group to stop performing and selling "People Say" ... and fork over damages.

Listen for yourself -- you think they got a legit gripe?

Drake Signs Point to Kanye Rendezvous For Wyoming Recording Sesh

3/16/2018 11:18 AM PDT

Drake may very well be making an appearance on Kanye West's next album because there are some MASSIVE, rocky hints he's in Wyoming, too.

Drake's personal photographer and videographer, Theo Skudra, shared footage on his Instagram story Thursday that looks exactly like the same place where Kanye's been holed up working on new music. Pay attention to the railing.

As we reported, Kim Kardashian joined her hubby in Jackson Hole last week while he worked on new music. Kim posted several pics from the trip -- one of which is above.

Travis Scott, The Dream, NAS, Kid Cudi and others also joined Ye on the trip for one massive collaboration. 

If Skudra's pic holds any proof that Drake's in town to work, Yeezy's next release is about to be a big one.

'Big Bro' Mike 'Boogie' Malin On the Hook for $800,000

3/16/2018 11:19 AM PDT

"Big Brother" winner Mike "Boogie" Malin is in the hole for $800,000.

Malin and his business partner, Lonnie Moore, were sued by their former partners and co-owners of Geisha House in L.A. The partners say Boogie and Moore embezzled from the club, gambling away hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay for sex, travel and other stuff.

The lawsuit was salacious, saying the duo used company resources "to have multiple sexual encounters with various older men during which Malin would live out fetish role play fantasies." Malin said at the time his partners were just trying to extort him, but ultimately the case resolved with Malin owing $800,000.

Malin filed for bankruptcy, but a judge just ordered the debt will not go away and he will still be on the hook for the full amount. 

Colin Kaepernick All Smiles After Legal Showdown with Texans Owner

3/16/2018 10:28 AM PDT

Colin Kaepernick sure seemed to be in a good mood in Houston on Friday -- after personally attending the deposition of Texans owner Bob McNair in his collusion case against the NFL. 

TMZ Sports obtained a photo of Kaep after the depo with his attorney, Ben Meiselas -- with some extra pep in their step. 

As we previously reported, Kaepernick had filed a grievance against the league claiming owners and other high-ranking NFL officials were in cahoots to blackball Colin after his national anthem demonstration. 

Kaepernick had arrived in Houston earlier this week -- and even knocked out a QB workout with his trainer. 

As far as the case goes ... McNair isn't the only big name on the witness list -- Kaep's legal team from Geragos & Geragos also subpoenaed Seahawks owner Paul Allen and coach Pete Carroll along with Jerry Jones and Robert Kraft

Stay tuned ... 

Kate Upton Alleged Witness Goes Silent With Guess Investigators

3/16/2018 10:15 AM PDT

The Guess investigation into Kate Upton's sexual harassment allegations against co-founder Paul Marciano has hit another roadblock -- Kate's witness is refusing to cooperate.

As we reported ... Kate has already said she won't talk to the lawyers investigating for Guess. She's pissed Guess initially hired Marciano's personal law firm for the probe, and even though Guess has now brought in a new independent firm, Glaser Weil, Kate's still pissed about what she calls "smoke and mirrors" tactics.

Our sources say photographer Yu Tsai -- the man Kate claims witnessed Marciano groping her -- has also gone radio silent. We're told Yu hasn't returned multiple phone calls and emails asking him to talk to investigators for Guess.

One possible reason for Yu going AWOL could be the dozens of emails he's sent Marciano over the years -- including one in July 2010, immediately after Kate alleges Marciano groped her. In that email, which we've seen, Yu says Kate asked him for Marciano's phone number so she could thank him for some Guess clothing she received.

In other emails, he consults with Marciano about future shoots with Kate and gushes about getting to work for Guess. It certainly appears he admires the Guess co-founder.

You'll recall, Kate said Yu was there when Marciano allegedly groped her thighs and breasts, and he's backed up her version of events. She said Yu was her buffer, present when she had a meeting or photo shoot Marciano attended.

For now, though ... he's not talking.

Kodak Black In Solitary Confinement

3/16/2018 9:48 AM PDT

Kodak Black is in solitary confinement ... TMZ has learned.

It appears from legal docs he was taken out of general population after he used the prison phone to make a 3-way call which is prohibited by prison rules.   He was given 30 days in the hole for that violation.  

The rapper -- who is currently behind bars in Florida -- filed legal docs asking the judge to allow him to have his tutor visit while he is in solitary because he wants to get his GED. In docs, filed by attorney Bradford Cohen and obtained by TMZ, Kodak also asks for access to a laptop and adds prior to getting jailed, he was studying for his GED.

The judge has yet to rule.

O.J. Simpson insists his 'If I Did It' TV special was NOT a confession to murder -- and says the people on the show were all "a bunch of haters."

Simpson gave his first sit-down interview since leaving prison to the Buffalo News -- and gave his own take on "O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?"

"When people want to make money or get ratings, they're going to pimp me. I'm going to get pimped."

Simpson says his friends had been teasing him about the show and whether or not it was a REAL confession

"Listen, if I confessed 12 years ago, you would have heard about it 12 years ago!"

When asked if he's watched the FOX special, Simpson replied -- "I watch nothing of me."

"I didn't watch the [FOX special] because I knew they were all haters, and people will say things that are just not true, and there's nobody there to challenge them, and that would piss me off."

"So why [watch it]? It's a beautiful day. I'm about to go play golf. Why should I have some crap in my mind? You've got to let it go."

Eric and Lara Trump looked sullen Thursday at a crêpe restaurant in Aspen ... just as Donald Trump Jr.'s wife filed for divorce.

Eric and Lara grabbed some grub at Crêperie du Village during an early night out.

As we reported, Eric's brother Donald couldn't make his marriage work, in large part because Vanessa hated politics and the public eye. We're told the last straw was when someone sent an envelope containing white powder to their home.

In sharp contrast, Lara loves politics and the spotlight ... she's a senior adviser in Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign.

Matthew Morrison, the star of "Crazy Alien," is outraged and disgusted by the abuse of a dog on the film's set ... and says if he was there, he would've made every effort to stop it. 

TMZ obtained a clip of a German Shepherd locked in a cage that was suspended high above the ground. The cage was then violently spun around and hurled into a freezing bed of water. We're told the scene was shot several times.

Had I been on set or known about this, I would have made all efforts to stop this. I've called the producers to express my outrage." 

A spokesperson for PETA -- who provided the clip to TMZ -- tells us they want the film's cast and producers held accountable and are demanding the following:

--The scene be cut.

-- Director Hao Ning to commit to never working with live animals again.

-- The cast, including Morrison to donate their salaries to animal-protection charities in China.

-- The current condition of the dog used. 

"Crazy Alien" is currently in post-production, a release date has not been made.
