Nicki Minaj is getting more than social media backlash for posting video of a woman losing it in Miami -- now a mental health organization is dressing her down for allegedly mocking the woman.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI-Miami) is sounding off, just like several of Nicki's fans, saying the clip is an invasion of the woman's privacy, which dehumanizes her.
NAMI says it's pissed Nicki's used her fame -- she has 70 million IG followers -- to influence young people in a negative manner. A rep for NAMI says, "Nobody would make fun of a cancer patient, and mental illness is an illness like any other."
Several comments on the video claim it's well-known in South Beach the woman in the video is mentally ill. In Nicki's defense, it's entirely plausible she didn't know that ... plus, she never says anything nasty to the woman.
TMZ got a copy of Shia's latest verse, which will air Monday afternoon on Power 106 in L.A.
On this one Shia compares himself to Marlon Brando (bad timing, maybe) ... and really gets out on a limb, by claiming he spits better than Eminem.
He saved his best for last, calling out Yachty one more time -- and Soulja Boy, who banned Shia from Atlanta after his last verse -- saying they're "just pop and MMMbop, and obscure fruit like kumquat." He also goes after Peter Rosenberg again.
Derick Ion Almena -- the guy who ran the Oakland art commune that went up in flames -- has a rap sheet, and not just in the Bay Area ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... Almena was pulled over in L.A. County for having expired tags in March 2015, and while searching his car cops discovered he had 2 stolen license plates from vehicles registered in Oakland. We're told he was arrested and booked for petty theft.
Almena was never charged though -- the D.A. declined to prosecute.
As we reported ... he was also facing a stolen property case in Alameda County, and is currently on probation for that one.
Michael's son appeared in a Santa Monica court Monday for a hearing regarding Katherine getting a new attorney. The new lawyer is Joy Bass, and she says she's now representing Katherine in all matters related to Michael's estate.
This, apparently, was news to the Katherine's current attorney ... and sources close to the family tell TMZ Prince is in court now to tell the judge they're disputing the new attorney's claim she's now speaking for Katherine.
We got Prince and TJ Jackson (Tito's son) on the way into court and they were tight-lipped.
Marlon Brando's son is coming to his late father's defense, saying there's no way his father would ever have plotted to sexually violate his "Last Tango in Paris" co-star.
Marlon's oldest living son, Miko Brando, tackled the controversial confession from the film's director, Bernardo Bertolucci. A video recently surfaced of Bertolucci saying, in 2013, he and Brando planned at the last minute to use a stick of butter on Maria Schneider during the sex scene, and never gave her any forewarning.
In the vid, Bertolucci says he wanted an authentic reaction to rape ... not acting. Schneider, who died in 2011, has said no intercourse took place, but she was shocked and strongly objected to the way things went down.
Miko calls the story pure crap, and says, "That's not the human being" my father was. He has a theory about why Bertolucci ever made the comment.
Celebs like Jessica Chastain, Chris Evans, Anna Kendrick and Ava DuVernay have expressed outrage at Brando and Bertolucci for essentially plotting to rape a woman -- but Miko's just not buying it.
This COULDA been super awkward ... but Alex Rodriguez apparently played it cool when his girlfriend reconnected with her billionaire ex-husband Sunday night ... at an event PACKED with powerful nerds.
Of course, A-Rod is dating Anne Wojcicki -- who was married to Google co-founder Sergey Brin until they split in 2015.
But it seems they're on good (or at least decent) terms because they didn't just hang out at the event last night ... they teamed up onstage and addressed the crowd at one point during the awards ceremony.
FYI, Brin is reportedly worth more than $30 BILLION.
A-Rod and Wojcicki started dating earlier this year. Brin attended the event with his girlfriend, Nicole Shanahan ... an accomplished lawyer/business mogul (who also happens to be smoking hot).
The event itself was wall-to-wall rich people and celebs ... including Mark Zuckerberg, Vin Diesel, Kevin Durant and more.
Brad Pitt's child custody arrangement with Angelina Jolie is in the hands of one man ... according to docs filed by Jolie.
Right now, the exes and their 6 kids are operating under a temporary custody deal agreed upon by both sides. As we've reported ... she has primary custody and Brad gets monitored visits, but the docs Angelina filed spell out the details.
According to the docs ... when and how Brad sees the children is determined by a psychologist who specializes in child custody issues. The deal says, the "frequency and conditions of the therapeutic visitation shall be determined by Ian Russ, Ph.D." Brad and Angie also must participate in group therapy sessions with the kids.
The terms of this deal must stay in place until there's a court order, or both parents agree to change it.
Additionally, the docs say Brad will submit to random drug and alcohol tests at least 4 times per month.
Pitt and Jolie made this arrangement in October, while Brad was still under investigation by the DCFS, but as we've reported ... the agency cleared him of any wrongdoing a month ago.
Jolie's filing essentially memorializes the temporary deal with the court. The judge signed it on Friday.
