Louis Tomlinson Baby Mama Keeping Me from My Son I Want Joint Custody

6/29/2016 4:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

062916-louis-tomlinson-Louis Tomlinson has had it with his baby mama denying him access to his child, so he's now going to court to seek joint custody ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us Briana Jungwirth has been "inconsistent" in giving Louis access to 5-month-old Freddie Reign ... especially recently.

Louis wants to be a real father and present in Freddie's life, so he's going to court not just seeking joint physical and legal custody, but a 50/50 split in terms of the division of time each spends with their son.

The One Direction singer, we're told, is paying Briana around $15k a month in child support, and a judge will now set whatever amount is deemed appropriate. Louis is also renting a $1 million house for Briana and the kid in Calabasas.

Fetty Wap's Baby Mama Your Fame Whoring Is Putting Our Kid at Risk

6/29/2016 3:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0629-fetty-wap-baby-instagram-01Fetty Wap's baby mama is railing on the rapper, claiming he's put their daughter squarely in the crosshairs of Internet trolls who are now on the attack.

Masika says she and Fetty had a very specific deal to keep 3-month-old Khari out of the limelight, and he betrayed her by posting pics of the kid. Predictably, people on social media have gotten snarky, saying the kid doesn't look anything like Fetty so she must have slept with someone else.

Masika thinks Fetty's been a bad dad who was there for the birth and a doctor's appointment but that was it, and now he's trying to fool the world by making it look like he's a proud papa.

Fetty's telling Masika to pound sand, and he'll do what he wants.

The weirdest part ... she hasn't gone to family law court and doesn't plan to, which -- if we can say -- is a HUGE mistake.

Tank Back Off Justin Timberlake People ... He's Not the Problem

6/29/2016 2:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tank thinks Justin Timberlake has gotten a raw deal from people on Black Twitter, who skewered him for responding to some of the things Jesse Williams said at the BET Awards.

The R&B singer appeared on "TMZ Live" Wednesday, and said Justin had a right to say there should not be a wall between blacks and whites, especially when it comes to music. Jesse accused white people of stealing from the black culture, and Justin said we're all one ... and Black Twitter attacked.

Tank makes the case for Justin, although he doesn't think every white singer deserves a pass.

Walgreens DJ Sues ... Your Earplugs Screwed My Hearing

6/29/2016 1:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0629-joseph-alpern-walgreens-getty-linkedin-02A DJ claims Walgreens sold him defective earplugs and the results were catastrophic.

Joseph Alpern says in a new lawsuit he bought the plugs in 2013 because he was about to start working at a Brooklyn club known for its powerful sound system.

Alpern claims he used the plugs for several hours and when he left the club he removed them, only to experience "an immediate sharp pain, accompanied by a ringing sound."

He says the pain didn't go away, and 6 months later he realized the damage wasn't going away either ... he had constant ringing in both ears and couldn't sleep on his right side.

Alpern went to a specialist, who gave him bad news ... he had permanent nerve damage and blames it on the plugs. The doc said the plugs were sealed so tightly, when he pulled them out it severely pulled his eardrum.

Alpern says now he suffers headaches, he's constantly fatigued and can't even listen to music at regular volumes.

He's gunning for $640,000 ... minimum.

Walgreens had no comment.

The Oscars New Members Are Mostly Minorities ... But #OscarsStillSoWhite

6/29/2016 1:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

062916-academy-awards-logoThe Oscars added 683 new members to its voting body Wednesday ... in the wake of the #OscarsSoWhite bruhaha, and while nearly half of the new class are minorities, it barely put a dent in the overall white and male demo.

According to the Academy ... 46 percent of the new class are female and 41 percent ... people of color. Sounds like a lot, but when you factor in the pre-existing members it's only a 2-3%.

0629_membership_diversity_oscars

Notable names on the list include Idris Elba, Vivica A. Fox, Morris ChestnutMichael B. Jordan, Nia Long, Gabrielle Union, and Marlon and Damon Wayans. 'Star Wars' newcomer John Boyega is the youngest at 24 added to the list. O'Shea Jackson also made the cut ... interesting since the "Straight Outta Compton" snub ignited the controversy.

The Academy says the new class reps "the best in our global film community." It also added this: "We encourage the larger creative community to open its doors wider, and create opportunities for anyone interested in working in this incredible and storied industry."

Baby steps.

6/29/2016 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

062916-wiz-khalifa-tmzThe man who discovered Wiz Khalifa says the rapper owes his company more than $2 million after not ponying up big chunks of dough.

Rostrum Records -- founded by Benjy Grinberg -- claims in a new lawsuit it had a deal with Wiz for a 15% cut of touring and music royalties when the rapper started back in 2005. The company says it's also owed 20% of any merch sales.

Justin Bieber Dodges Big Probation Problem By Hours

6/29/2016 11:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

062916-justin-bieber-tmz-02Justin Bieber narrowly escaped a situation that could have landed him in jail ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story, Justin's lawyer, Shawn Holley, went to court at 8:30 AM June 9th and got a judge to end Bieber's probation in the egging case. As we reported, one of the conditions of his probation was that he obey all laws, and if he didn't the judge could throw him in jail.

Turns out, less than 10 hours before the hearing, Justin threw a punch at a guy after the NBA Finals in Cleveland. That could certainly have triggered a probation violation.

We've learned the court hearing was not scheduled in advance. Holley and the D.A. just walked into court and asked the judge to end Bieber's probation a month early.

It sure looks like Holley did Yeoman's work and beat the news before it spread. Our sources say, however, that Holley and the D.A. had actually talked amongst themselves days before about going to court and they say it's just coincidence.

Coincidence or not, Bieber was an hour or 2 from trouble.

TMZ has confirmed.

The Palm Springs house is pretty spectacular ... a 60' circular living room with an indoor/outdoor pool. It's nearly 9,000 square feet and right next door to Leo DiCaprio's pad.

We're told Scott's in escrow for around $8 mil and there's no reason at this point the sale won't go through. The house was listed by uber P.S. realtors John Nelson and Cat Moe from Coldwell Banker. Variety first broke the story that Scott's the buyer.

As for the movie ... the epic scene was shot in the living room, where Bond was attacked by Thumper and Bambi.

EXCLUSIVE

062916-hefner-chloe-goins-cosby-tmzHugh Hefner's no rapist enabler ... so dragging his name into Bill Cosby's sexual assault case is ABSURD ... so claims Hef in new legal docs obtained by TMZ.

The Playboy magazine founder just asked the judge to dismiss him from Chloe Goins' lawsuit against Cosby, arguing the suit reeks of a desperate ploy to drum up publicity and force Cosby to settle.

Hefner goes on to say he's never been implicated in a single act of sexual impropriety against a woman.

As we reported ... Chloe added Hefner's name to her lawsuit claiming he put her in harm's way when he introduced her to Cosby at a Playboy Mansion party in 2008. She claims Cosby spiked her drink, and while she was out of it, he fondled her breasts and sucked her toes.
