'Married To Medicine' Jill Connors

Loses Kids, Car, Cash & House

After Attacking Hubby

8/28/2015 3:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-jill-john-connors-facebook-01Jill Connors is a woman completely on her own after attacking her husband earlier this month -- and in a weird twist, she hopes to get things back on track by filing for divorce. 

TMZ broke the story ... the "Married to Medicine" star went berserk on hubby Dr. John Connors after he accused her of cheating. John won a restraining order shortly after her arrest and he got everything -- the house, her car and custody of their 3 kids ... at least temporarily.

But Jill is fighting back ... we got a copy of the divorce papers she filed last week, asking for primary custody of the kids as well as spousal support.  And she wants their Atlanta home. 

She also says John withdrew $250k from their joint account -- leaving her penniless.

Tila Tequila

Booted from 'Celebrity Big Brother'

Over Hitler Rant

8/28/2015 12:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828_TILA_TEQUILA_big_brother_tmzTila Tequila just got the ax from the "Celebrity Big Brother" house after producers discovered she sympathized with Hitler back in 2013.

We're told the show just kicked off across the pond in the UK and after the subject of Hitler came up while she was in the house, producers raised the red flag. According to her manager, they made the decision to remove her from the show immediately. 

Back in 2013, the reality star took to her blog and Facebook page to post a racy photo of herself in Nazi gear standing outside of Auschwitz.

Not only was she thrown out ... we're told Tila won't be receiving her gigantic $175,000 payout from the show.

Karrueche

Chris Brown's a Hypocrite

So Stop the Threats!

8/28/2015 12:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-SUB-karrueche-bathing-suit-INSTAGRAM-02Karrueche is done with Chris Brown's possessiveness and his henchman's violent threats ... and she's firing back.

Chris' ex is responding to a threat made by a member of Chris' posse ... a threat directed at Marques Houston, who gave thumbs up to the pic she posted of her amazing body.

The threat was in the form of a photo of 2 guns, with the caption, "Ni**as sho no how to disrespect, I don't care if they not still together."

Karrueche thinks it's time for Chris, and any of his friends, to get over it -- "I'm bored and tried of this situation. I don't get it because I'm single."

She adds, "I thought we have all matured and moved on. Especially since Chris has been seen with multiple women since the breakup. I don't want anything to do with any type of violence or negativity."

Karrueche tells us she and Marques are just friends, nothing more. The two of them just finished filming a movie together.

Chris has been radio silent since the threat was posted. 

Robin Williams

Wife & Kids Still Fighting

Over High-Priced Bike Collection

8/28/2015 12:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0828-robin-williams-bike-GETTY-01Robin Williams' widow and his three kids are still warring over his possessions, including his super-expensive collection of bicycles.

The attorney for Susan Williams, Robin's widow, was in court Friday morning ... asking a San Francisco judge to settle the remaining property disputes with Robin's 3 children ... Zak, Zelda and Cody.

Robin was an avid cyclist and owned dozens of bikes when he died. It's been reported he spent more than a million bucks on the sport. Some of his cycles were extremely rare and worth tens of thousands of dollars.

The attorney for the children says Robin's will is clear about who should get what ... and doesn't think the court needs to intervene.

Both sides will meet next week in a last ditch effort to settle the matter without the judge.

  

Karrueche Tran

Death Threats Over Sexy Shot

8/28/2015 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0828-karruehce-tran-instagram-01A photo of Karreuche Tran has R&B singer Marques Houston looking over his shoulder after a comment he posted triggered death threats from a member of Chris Brown's crew.

Houston ogled Tran's pic, then paid her the highest compliment: 

0828-subasset-karrueche-comment-instagram

Houston's accolade set off one of Breezy's crew members, who responded by posting a pic of semi-automatics and a jarring warning. 

0828-subasset-karrueche-guns-instagram-01The warning cannot be taken lightly, because the crew member is a known gang member.  

You may recall, back in May, Tyson Beckford posted a pic of himself with Karrueche and Chris responded by tweeting, "U wanna keep walking them runways. I need ta legs for that." 

  

The Weeknd

Viral Music Video Shoot ...

NOT Busted by Cops

8/28/2015 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

That viral vid of LAPD officers brutally shutting down The Weeknd's music video shoot Thursday night in downtown LA is nothing more than a wicked game ... of promotion.

The LAPD tells TMZ ... the video going around on social media is 100% staged.

The clip shows several cops ripping through The Weeknd's set with nightsticks, demanding permits, and shutting down all video recording.

We also know the guy who posted the clip is actually Weeknd's creative director -- and since his new album drops today ... it's a little too perfect.

The beauty behind the madness here -- pure guerrilla marketing.

My Baby Mama's BF Is

A Wanted Man!!

breaking news

0828-king-ba-instagram-01Chris Brown is blasting his baby mama for being a hypocrite -- while she claims it's not safe for Royalty to be around Chris ... her BF, and Royalty's wannabe stepdad, is wanted for forgery.

Chris started ripping Nia Guzman after a Houston TV station reported cops are searching for King Ba. He's accused of forging more than $5,000 worth of U.S. Treasury checks, and police released bank surveillance footage of him.

Chris immediately responded to the news ... saying on Instagram, "Funny how I work a legit job and love my daughter to the fullest and I'm in her life. Well, if it ain't the pot calling the kettle black."

Nia tried to distance herself from King Ba ... telling Chris that she's single and has moved away from Houston.

TMZ broke the story ... Nia wants to limit Chris to supervised visits with Royalty because she thinks he's irresponsible. But now Chris feels like he's got high ground in this battle. As he told Nia, "#goddontlikeugly"

Caitlyn Jenner

Crash Victims Will Sue Her

For $18.5 MILLION

8/28/2015 8:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-catilyn-jenner-inf

Caitlyn Jenner could escape criminal prosecution for her fatal PCH car crash, but we've learned on the civil front she's about to be sued ... for $18.5 million.

TMZ broke the story, the estate of Kim Howe -- the woman who died in the accident -- was just sued for $18.5 million by the 5 occupants in the Hummer she struck after Jenner's vehicle pushed her into oncoming traffic.

We've learned the lawyer for the 5 Hummer occupants plans on filing an identical lawsuit against Jenner, claiming her negligence caused the crash.  

It's unclear why the Hummer occupants believe Howe was negligent. As for Jenner, the fact that she struck the Lexus from behind creates an open-and-shut case for negligence, but the amount of damages the Hummer occupants want is stunning.

Caitlyn has already been sued by the stepchildren of Howe, but their case seems tenuous based on their distant relationship with their stepmom.

Skype Founder Sues Ex

We Had a Bad Connection

Now I Want My Ring Back!!!

8/28/2015 7:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828-janus-aura-getty-01The guy who co-founded Skype -- and sold it for $2.6 BILLION -- claims he got the picture when he found out his fiancee allegedly cheated on him, and now he's suing to get the ridiculously expensive ring back. 

Janus Friis claims in a new lawsuit, he got engaged to Maria Louise Joenson -- a Danish recording artist who goes by Aura Dione --  back in 2013. As a symbol of his love, he gave her a $471,000 engagement ring, an apartment and cash, but claims there were strings attached to the gifts ... they had to seal the deal.

Friis claims he learned she had "multiple affairs and sexual encounters with other men" and broke off the engagement. So now he wants his stuff back.

If Maria's holding on to the ring, it's pretty obvious why ... Janus describes it as a 950 Platinum band inset with a number of diamonds, including a 1.76 ct round brilliant cut diamond -- D color, internally flawless, excellent symmetry and cut grade.   

The ring also has a pair of blue pear shaped diamonds of South African origins with a collective weight of .91 ct. 

Friis wants minimum $1 million.

Seacrest's Ex-GF

Taste Matters

When It Comes to My Men

8/28/2015 8:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

We got to know Shayna Taylor when she was dating Ryan Seacrest -- but after this encounter she will forever be known for her skills in the kitchen ... and possibly the bedroom.

Shayna was leaving Nice Guy in West Hollywood when we hit her up for some recipe advice -- she hosts an online cooking show, after all.

The question: What can a woman cook to make a man go crazy for her? Shayna -- in a near-sheer top, btw -- actually had a great suggestion for men AND women ... and tasty too. 

Seacrest (missing) out!
