Charlie Sheen Settles National Enquirer Lawsuit Over Haim Rape Story

3/19/2018 8:07 AM PDT

Charlie Sheen will not go to trial in his legal battle with the National Enquirer -- it appears both sides have reached a settlement in the defamation case.

Charlie sued the Enquirer late last year over a story it published, claiming he raped a then 13-year-old Corey Haim on the set of the 1980s movie, "Lucas." Charlie denied the story, and Corey's mother also said it was BS.

According to docs filed in L.A. late last week ... Charlie's lawyers are asking for the suit to be dismissed with prejudice -- meaning it can't be refiled. That's typically a sign that they've struck a deal. Sources familiar with the situation tell us no money changed hands -- but both sides were fully satisfied with the terms.

We've got calls in to Sheen's legal team.

Britney Spears K-Fed's Making a Shameless Money Grab

3/19/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Britney Spears' dad, Jamie, is super upset at Kevin Federline, who called him pleading for more child support when, in fact, all he wants is to jump on her gravy train.

Sources connected to Britney tell TMZ, last Friday K-Fed called Jamie and said he was in a financial bind and wanted to talk about raising his child support. TMZ broke the story K-Fed has been pulling in $20k a month for child support for years, but he now says it's not enough.

We're told Jamie was suspicious and asked Kevin where the $20k was going, but Kevin hedged.

Our sources say, last week, Jamie got a letter from Kevin's lawyer, asking him if they could sit down and talk. They did indeed have a talk, and we're told the lawyer explained now that 12-year-old Sean and 11-year-old Jayden have gotten older, Kevin needed more than $20k.

We're told Jamie pressed again, asking what the kids needed that they weren't getting. We're told Kevin's lawyer wouldn't answer, but said his client needed the means to take care of the 2 kids at Britney's level. Jamie fired back ... Britney's taking care of the kids the way she always did -- nothing's changed.

Our sources say the lawyer repeatedly talked about Britney's recent successes -- particularly her sold-out Vegas shows -- saying she was making a lot more money. We're told Jamie kept pushing back, saying Britney's success has nothing to do with the needs of the children, and his daughter wasn't responsible for taking care of Kevin and his other families.

Britney has paid Kevin a fortune in various forms of support over the years. When they divorced in 2007, she cut him a check for $1.3 million and he got spousal support for several years and continues to get child support.

We're told Kevin and his lawyer never named a figure and never gave a single example of the children's unmet needs. 

NBA YoungBoy Charged with Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault ... In Girlfriend Beating

3/19/2018 6:36 AM PDT

NBA YoungBoy has been grabbed by the long arm of the law, because he's just been indicted for beating the hell out of his girlfriend ... and one of the charges is kidnapping.

A grand jury in Waycross, Georgia handed down the 2-count indictment for aggravated assault and kidnapping.

TMZ posted video of the incident ... you see YoungBoy and his GF in a hotel hallway, and he body slams her. As for the kidnapping charge ... he drags her into a hotel room and that's the basis of the charge.

The girlfriend did not want to press charges, saying they were just engaged in horseplay, but people on the Grand Jury didn't buy her story. 

YoungBoy was released from jail last week on $75k bond.

Rick Ross Performs In Miami Day After Vegas Comeback

3/19/2018 7:37 AM PDT

If Rick Ross was in dire straits earlier this month, he didn't show it at all while doing TWO shows this weekend ... on both sides of the country.

A day after his first show since being hospitalized -- Ross jetted back to his hometown of Miami for a performance at LIV on Sunday ... and jumped onstage while he was there. It looked like a packed house ... Lil Wayne, Jason Derulo and rapper Fresh were also there. The place was decked out with signs reading, "Welcome Back Rick Ross."

Coming on the heels of his early Sunday morning gig in Vegas ... the Miami appearance wrapped up a weekend schedule that would be considered busy for anyone -- much less someone recovering from an apparent heart-related emergency.

He's come a long way in less than 3 weeks.

Selena Gomez Sun in Sydney Transplant Scar Evident

3/19/2018 6:00 AM PDT

Selena Gomez put on a bikini and hopped on a boat in Sydney Harbor over the weekend and you can clearly see some of the scarring from her kidney transplant.

Gomez soaked up the sun Sunday with some friends -- and no Bieber

The scar is not located near the kidney, but Selena had complications immediately after her transplant. An artery broke and she had to get emergency surgery where doctors took a vein from her leg and created a new artery to help stabilize the overactive kidney, which left the scar on her leg.

Selena was in really bad shape before the transplant, so it's a small price for another chance at life.

Rick Ross 1st Show Since Hospitalization ... 'Free Meek Mill'!

Exclusive Video

Rick Ross returned to the stage for the first time this weekend since his hospitalization, and one of his main orders of business was shouting out his locked up label mate, Meek Mill

Da Boss performed early Sunday morning at The Light nightclub in Vegas in what appears to be the first show he's done since his heart-related health scare earlier this month.

We broke the story ... Ross was hospitalized in Florida after someone found him unresponsive at his home and "slobbing at the mouth." He was put on ECMO to facilitate respiratory and heart functions, and eventually got sent back home to recover.

Definitely looks like Rick is doing better -- he rapped through a few songs, drank from his double cup ... and, most importantly, led a chant demanding authorities #FreeMeekMill. The takeaway ... Renzel seems to be back to his old self, and he hasn't forgotten Meek.

Oh, he also poured some champagne for some ladies in the front row. Wouldn't be a Rick Ross concert without that. Good to have you back, Rozay!

Boyz II Men's Shawn Stockman Chris Brown Haters Are Whack!!! Time to Let the Man Live

3/19/2018 7:05 AM PDT

Boyz II Men singer Shawn Stockman wants everybody to stop hating on Chris Brown ... stat.

We got Shawn Sunday at LAX, and asked him about Lil Dicky's music video for "Freaky Friday" ... where he wakes up as CB. The video also featured Ed Sheeran and Kendall Jenner, both of whom are getting some backlash for supporting Chris, a convicted abuser.

Aside from the 2009 Rihanna case -- where Chris got 5 years probation, 180 days community service and a year of counseling -- there were more recent allegations of abuse from his ex-gf, Karrueche Tran.

For Shawn, though, it's high time to stop judging Chris ... who, he believes, has turned a corner and is focusing on improving himself. Shawn also had strong feelings about Snapchat's ad for a Chris/Rihanna game that went horribly wrong.

Aries Spears Dubs Tekashi69 ... Cartoonish & Clownish!!!

3/19/2018 7:32 AM PDT

Aries Spears wants to know -- what's the difference between Tekashi69 and the cartoon character Rainbow Brite? Aries seriously can't tell the difference.

We got the comedian at LAX Sunday and wanted to get his take on Tekashi's new beef ... this time with The Game. As we reported ... Tekashi bragged that "a kid with rainbow hair got the whole industry right now aggravated." Game fired back with a veiled threat.

Aries went the LOL route (because, of course) ... comparing Tekashi to the Hallmark character responsible for making the universe bright and beautiful. Some would argue none of that describes Tekashi, but point made ... the dude's a character, to say the least.

Aries also weighs in on pedophile rumors. Tekashi reportedly pled guilty to using a child under 17 in a sexual performance back in 2015. Tekashi's troubles with women have haunted him before.

Iggy Azalea I Torched All of Nick Young's Clothes

Breaking News

Hell hath no fury like Iggy Azalea scorned -- just ask Nick Young, who had all his designer clothes LIT ON FIRE by his ex-fiancee ... after he got caught with his pants down.

"I burnt it all. And I threw stuff in the pool, too," Iggy said, smiling. 

Remember -- the NBA baller and rap star had a pretty messy breakup back in the day ... and we already knew Iggy dumped a bunch of Nick's crap on her driveway (and got his car towed).

And now, we got the play-by-play of Iggy going pyro on Swaggy P's entire closet!

"I texted him a video and I’m like, 'Hey, I’m burning your s**t ... I don’t know where you’re at, probably with some girl, so I hope you get home quickly because I’m moving on."

"We're progressing on the spectrum from cheap to expensive," Azalea told Andy Cohen on 'Watch What Happens Live.'

RIP Swaggy's swag.

'Weird Al' Yankovic Wife Calls 911 After Creepy Call

3/19/2018 12:50 AM PDT

"Weird Al" Yankovic's wife was so freaked out by a string of events at their home -- including an ominous phone call and man lurking on their property -- she called police in a panic.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Al's wife, Suzanne, called cops to their L.A. home earlier this week after receiving a creepy call from a man. It's unclear exactly what the caller said, but it was enough for Suzanne to feel scared.

We're told when officers arrived, Suzanne also informed them she'd seen a man standing in her yard just a few days before. Suzanne said she locked eyes with the trespasser and he took off. 

Our sources say cops determined no crime had been committed, but they took a trespassing report.

At this time, it does not appear the two incidents are related, but when police drive by in the foreseeable future, they'll take a close look around the property. 

Floyd Mayweather Applying for MMA License Wants 6-8 Months to Train

3/19/2018 12:40 AM PDT

Floyd Mayweather told us he's dead serious about fighting in the UFC -- and now, he says he's taking the most important step to make sure that happens ... getting a license. 

We got Floyd in L.A. earlier this week ... and he told TMZ Sports he's planning to submit the paperwork to get licensed as a pro MMA fighter. We're guessing he's eyeing Nevada. 

"Everything takes time. Eventually, we're gonna apply for the license, and hopefully we can fight," Mayweather said. 

No word on when exactly Floyd's applying -- or beginning his MMA training with UFC champ Tyron Woodley -- but TBE did give us an estimate on how long he'll need to get Octagon ready

"Even if it takes 6 to 8 months -- whatever it takes. We want to make sure that everything is done correctly, and everything is done the right way."

Liberace Former Penthouse Now Chic Office

3/19/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Liberace's penthouse -- featured in the 2013 film "Behind the Candelabra" -- has undergone a major makeover and is no longer a home ... but a company's headquarters.

TMZ has learned the legendary pianist's former pad in L.A.'s Fairfax District is now the perfect fantasy office of women's fashion and lifestyle company NYLON Media. The glam space is filled with jewel tones, soft textures and gold details ... without forgetting Liberace's lavish style.

We're told Liberace's old living room is now NYLON's main headquarters, and his master bedroom has been transformed into NYLON's music and sound studio.

One of the main attractions of the penthouse -- the pool -- is still a hot spot ... but now serves as a venue for work events.

The chic new office also houses Socialyte, a content creation agency led by influencer Beca Alexander, and SIMPLY, an agency that has worked with Alessandra Ambrosio, Olivia Culpo and Julianne Hough.

Anna Gunn Wannabe Burglar Scared Away After Smashing Window

3/19/2018 12:20 AM PDT

Anna Gunn's home alarm system came through in a big way by alerting her that a potential thief was lurking outside, and Anna was able to scare the perp off ... TMZ has learned.

The "Breaking Bad" actress was at her L.A. pad in the Valley Thursday night when somebody smashed one of her back windows and triggered her alarm ... according to law enforcement sources. We're told Anna was quick to act and turn on the lights ... causing the suspect or suspects to take off.

Anna made a 911 call and cops arrived shortly after and other than the broken window ... we're told everything at her home's shipshape.

As we've reported ... a crime wave of celeb burglaries has hit the Valley the past several months, but fortunately for Gunn the thieves left empty-handed this time.

She must have a security system like Joe Jonas.
