Mariah to James Packer Pay Me $50 Million for My Troubles

10/28/2016 8:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Mariah Carey has privately made a demand to James Packer ... he needs to pay her $50 mil ... or else.

Sources connected to the now warring ex-couple tell TMZ ... Mariah believes James has cost her tens of millions of dollars, and here's why:

-- She claims he got her to move from New York to L.A., uprooting her entire life, so he could be near his kids. 

-- She claims the incident on the yacht in Greece -- where she says he did something awful to her assistant -- has traumatized Mariah so much she had to cancel the South American leg of her tour. 

-- He made various financial promises to her. 

No comment from Packer.

10/28/2016 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1028-keshia-knight-ed-hartwell-TMZ-GETTY-01Keshia Knight Pulliam claims her estranged husband, Ed Hartwell, won't take a paternity test and she wants him locked up for it. 

Pulliam just filed new docs saying she's already submitted her court ordered DNA sample ... but Ed missed the deadline. She wants a judge to find him in contempt, and lock him up until he hands over his sample.

That's not all ... Keshia wants Ed to register all his guns solely under his own name. They previously had weapons registered together, but Keshia wants to cut ties due to what she calls Ed's uncontrollable temper

Keshia's also asking the judge to order Ed to pay half her moving fees and household bills from the home they shared. And if you wanna know how petty this split is -- she's demanding he buck up for her pooch's "flea treatment."

Philadelphia 76ers Apologize for Blocking Anthem Singer 'Wrong Decision was Made'

10/28/2016 9:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

The Philadelphia 76ers have just issued an apology to Sevyn Streeter -- the singer they blocked from singing the National Anthem this week over her "We Matter" shirt -- and have invited her back to sing at another game. 

"We are sorry that this happened," the team said.

"After receiving feedback from our players, basketball operations staff and ownership group, we believe that the wrong decision was made, and Sevyn should have been welcomed to sing."

"We apologize to her, and in an effort to move the conversation forward, we have reached out to offer her an opportunity to return and perform at a game of her choice. We are waiting to hear back."

As TMZ Sports previously reported, several players were upset with the decision -- and voiced their concerns to management following the game.

Fetty Wap Sued You Owe Me Benjamins for '679'

10/28/2016 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1028-fetty-wap-p-dice-tmz-instagram-01Fetty Wap ruthlessly cut the lyrics written by a former Remy Boyz member for his mega hit "679" and cheated him out of major cash ... so claims Fetty's ex-homie.

Rapper P-Dice says he helped write the multi-platinum song, and Fetty cut a deal to give him 16.9% of the profits off the track, but in a lawsuit PD says he was scrubbed from the song to avoid the payout.

According to the docs, Fetty verbally agreed to give P-Dice writing credit -- but after they finished recording, Fetty deleted his entire performance and reduced his share of the profits to 5%.

P-Dice -- who appears prominently in the "679" music video -- says the edited version ended up on Fetty's album which debuted No. 1 on Billboard. The music vid alone has topped 238 million views.

P-Dice is suing for damages in excess of $7 million. We reached out to Fetty, so far no word back.

Mariah Carey Packer Went Berserk on Dancer ... Banned Him From Her Shows

10/27/2016 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027-mariah-carey-james-packer-tmz-getty-92James Packer went crazy on a guy he suspected was making moves on Mariah Carey ... sources connected with Mariah tell TMZ.

Our Mariah sources say Packer grew jealous of her relationship with Bryan Tanaka -- her dancer and choreographer -- and the tension boiled over in June at Mariah's show.

We're told Bryan wasn't dancing that night due to an injury, so Packer thought it was weird he botherd to show up. Packer pulled Bryan into a room for a little mano a mano. Our sources say there was a ton of yelling, but it's unclear if it got physical.

We're told Packer was so crazed he used his casino ties -- he owns several in Australia and Asia -- to get Tanaka banned from Caesar's Palace, where MC performs. This photo of Bryan was circulated to security. 

1027_Mariah-Careys-banned-dancerWe're told Mariah didn't make a fuss because Bryan, who was nursing a knee injury, wasn't dancing. Mariah sources say she feared Packer. As we've reported, she thinks he's "mentally unstable."

Our Mariah sources think James got suspicious after she gave Bryan a lap dance -- a staple in her show -- during a May performance in South Africa.


Irina Shayk Hey Good Looking ... What's Cooking?

10/28/2016 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1028-irina-shayk-getty-01The answer is ... nothing -- although Irina Shayk's little black dress made it seem like she had something in the oven Thursday night in London.

Irina hit up Mark's Club in London with fellow model Lara Stone -- flashing max cleavage, but everyone's looking a little lower. Yeah, it kinda looked like she had a little extra in the belly area, and honestly ... we had to look closely more than twice.

But the dress is just a poor-fitting, optical illusion. Check out a side view of the supermodel 3 weeks ago.

We'll consider this confirmation, Bradley Cooper -- you're in the clear.

Donald Trump Accuser I Voted ... Incognito!

10/28/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027_mindy_undercover_Ken-Davidoff--OldrockphotofacebookOne of Donald Trump's accusers already cast her vote for president ... and she went to the polls undercover, out of fear.

Mindy McGillivray -- who claims Trump grabbed her ass at Mar-a-Lago in 2003 -- went to a Florida polling place this week. She stopped by Trump's hotel afterwards for the photo op. 

Mindy says she went in disguise so she wouldn't get harassed. Trump is neck and neck with Hillary in the Sunshine State, so she feared lots of people would be angry at her.  

Her plan worked ... she slipped in and out without detection.

Mindy and one of the other Trump accusers say they're ready to go to war if Donald sues them.

'Star Wars' Darth Maul Actor Alleged 'Menace' At Fan Convention

10/28/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027-ray-park-instagram-02The guy who played Darth Maul in "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" is under investigation for allegedly assaulting a woman ... TMZ has learned.

Raymond Park was a panelist at Super Megafest Comic-con in Massachusetts last weekend, and law enforcement sources tell us they got a 911 call early Sunday reporting an assault at his hotel. Park's rep says cops woke the actor in his room, and spoke to him about claims he struck a woman.

Park was questioned, but never detained or arrested. His rep says Park was partying with fans Saturday night at his hotel bar, but insists he never assaulted anyone. Witnesses tell us he seemed kinda wasted while throwing darts, but no one saw anything violent.

For what it's worth, Park was back at the convention Sunday. Cops say their investigation is still ongoing.
