Tyga

Sued for Overclubbing it in Vegas

EXCLUSIVE

0731-tyga-tmz-01

Tyga is getting sued for club hopping in Vegas.

According to legal docs ... Kylie's BF signed a contract with a promoter to perform last summer at Body English for $25k. Part of the deal was that Tyga couldn't perform anywhere else in Vegas a week before the concert and a month after. It's called a "radius" clause, and it's really common.

The promoter -- Z Entertainment -- claims Tyga hopped onstage at another Vegas venue the night before the Body English gig. 

The promoter also says Tyga screwed them over when he was a no-show last November at a gig in Santa Monica. 

The promoter wants Tyga to fork over $100k in damages.

She’s ponying up $50k a month for rent and with a 2-year lease she'll be paying more than a mil.

update_grey_gray_bar

The video is horrific ... a drag race comes to a quick, violent end when Daddy Dave from "Street Outlaws" loses control of his vehicle and it slams into a wall and barrel rolls.

It happened at the Amarillo Dragway in Texas Saturday night.  Dave was driving a nitrous-fed Chevy II and struck the wall seconds after the race started.

He was taken away by ambulance and is currently in the hospital in stable condition.  It's a miracle he lived.  At the very least, it appears he suffered a serious concussion.


Jericho the Lion

Cecil's 'Brother'

Alive and Well!!!

breaking news

0802-jericho-alive-WILDCRU-01Jericho -- the so-called "brother" of Cecil The Lion -- is doing just fine, despite reports he met the same fate as the beloved fallen beast.

Jericho was spotted early Sunday in Zimbabwe.

Here's what's really interesting.  Jericho and Cecil were not related, but in the jungle it doesn't matter much.  There's such a  thing as "cooperative coalitions" between unrelated male lions, who band together to protect their territories.  

As the studies go, 42% of these coalitions involve lions who have no blood relation.

It's kind of like a reality show, except way more awesome.

Kylie Jenner

Butt Cream Company ...

Back Off, We Didn't Pay Kylie

8/2/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0731-kylie-jenner-pureleef-instagram-01PureLeef, the body plumping cream company that got a huge lift from Kylie Jenner, claims she did it all on her own, for free.

Kylie, who turns 18 August 10, got tons of backlash for what some say is an inappropriate Instagram photo promoting the company’s butt enhancement and breast plumping creams. 

A lot of people are calling BS, saying she got her butt and boobs from surgical knives, not cream.

But the company insists the endorsement was unsolicited. They say they didn't pay Kylie, but they don't say if any money went to anyone else Kardashian related.

It's interesting ... the company is big on parental controls, saying they urge parents to get involved if the user is under 18. It's unclear if this is an endorsement or a shot at Kris.

As for the cream, PureLeef boasts, “We feel our way is much safer and less final than surgery or black market 'butt injections' all while producing real results.”

Chris Brown's Baby Mama

I Don't Trust Him

Alone With Royalty

8/2/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0731_Nia-Guzman_chris_brown_instagram_tmzChris Brown's baby mama fears for the safety of their daughter when she's alone with him ... so she's asking a judge to ONLY allow him to see 1-year-old Royalty when someone else is around. 

We're told Nia Guzman just filed the legal docs for supervised visitation. Chris has filed his own docs to establish paternity so he can fight for joint custody, but so far the judge has not ruled. 

We're told Guzman wants full custody because she thinks Chris is simply too irresponsible to care for a kid on his own and she believes he and his friends all have substance abuse issues. He thinks it's all just a ploy to get more child support.

So much for working things out without a court order.

Bobbi Kristina Funeral

Brown Cousin Says,

Leolah Brown is Crazy

8/2/2015 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's not only friction between the Brown and Houston families in the wake of Bobbi Kristina's death ... now there's intra-family fighting, with Bobbi's cousin calling Bobbi's aunt "crazy."

Meeta Brown, Bobbi's cousin who attended the funeral, made a beeline for cameras after the service and ragged on Leolah Brown, who was removed after screaming that Pat Houston would be haunted by the ghost of Whitney.

Meeta, who refers to herself as Bobbi Kristina's sister but is actually her cousin, insists the 2 families are getting along fine ... which is not what we're hearing at all.

Meeta, who was on the reality show, "The Houstons: On Our Own," was frequently at Bobbi Kristina's bedside during the last 6 months.
