Celeb Burglaries LAPD Suspects Crips

3/30/2017 2:11 PM PDT

0330_lapd_crips_composite_tmz-2The recent string of celeb burglary victims -- Nicki Minaj, Alanis Morissette, Yasiel Puig and Emmy Rossum -- might have been hit by Crips ... according to a report.

Here's how it allegedly goes down -- the Crips ditch their gang attire and hop into luxury whips to blend into the high-end communities they're targeting. According to the AP ... the burglars show up to fancy cribs and look for signs it's empty. They ring the doorbell and if no one answers, they break in.

LAPD refers to it as "flocking" because gang members flock to these neighborhoods like birds.

Our law enforcement sources say it's not necessarily ALL Crips pulling these heists, but cops definitely suspect they're involved in some of them. Also, they're NOT only targeting celeb homes ... they just so happen to stumble upon them in certain glitzy neighborhoods.

As we first reported ... police also blame jail overcrowding, and new laws that put non-violent offenders back on the streets much sooner.

Exclusive Details

0330-kevin-gates-tmz-01Kevin Gates went from being locked up in Florida to being jailed in Chicago with less than 24 hours of freedom in between.

The rapper is currently behind bars in Cook County after being released from Polk County in FL Wednesday around 4 PM. 

As we reported ... Kevin was thrown back in the slammer last week after FL authorities found an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Chicago. He twice failed to appear in court on a separate gun case from 2013.

Kevin was just about to finish his Florida stint for kicking a female fan in the chest at a concert in 2015.

Law enforcement sources tell us he was not extradited to Cook County, but rather turned himself in. He's being held on no bond until his next court date in April.

El Chapo Drug Lords Need Jesus Too!

3/30/2017 11:06 AM PDT

0330-el-chapo-GETTY-01El Chapo -- the notorious drug lord who reigned over the world's most dangerous cartel -- is PISSED he can't properly pray in prison.

Chapo's lawyers fired off a letter to the judge outlining "draconian conditions" in Manhattan's Metropolitan Correctional Center ... including the fact the kingpin hasn't seen a Spanish-speaking priest.

In the letter, obtained by TMZ, Chapo's legal team is pretty clear ... "any interaction he has with 'religious personnel' has either been through pantomime or with the assistance of a prison guard who speaks Spanish."

His lawyers say this is a clear violation of his constitutional rights. They're also adamant the U.S. government is spying on Chapo every time he meets with his legal team -- and they've requested Amnesty International USA to inspect Chapo's cell.

As we've reported ... Chapo's lawyers say he's being held under the worst, most restrictive conditions of any prisoner currently detained by the U.S. government.

0330-kenya-moore-matt-jordan-tmz-01'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Kenya Moore says she's had to dodge up to 30 phone calls a day from her ex-BF, Matt Jordan, so she went to court to get protection.

In legal docs, Kenya says Matt threatened her last week, telling a mutual friend ... "she'd get what she deserves" after she blocked his harassing calls.

The couple broke up after a nightmare vacation last year in Mexico, which Kenya mentions in her request for a restraining order. She adds Matt kicked in a hotel door and threw her suitcase in the driveway after they got back.

Last week, she told us things haven't gotten any better since last summer.

The judge granted her the restraining order which requires Matt to stay 200 yards away from Kenya, and stop all harassing or intimidating behavior toward her or her family.

As we've reported ... Matt has a long rap sheet that includes 4 arrests in the last year alone.

3/30/2017 10:18 AM PDT

Ex-"Dance Moms" host Abby Lee Miller doesn't appreciate getting dissed by the moms on the show ... 'cause she's the one who helped 'em get $20k per episode just for being couch-sitting housewives.

We got Abby outside the Mondrian Hotel Wednesday in West Hollywood where she told us all she ever wanted, and still wants, from producers is a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

She announced her departure earlier this week, and almost immediately some of the moms threw shade Abby's way while praising her replacement, Cheryl Burke ... who they say "will show up and not complain."

Abby had no problem firing back at 'em though.

Malia and the mystery guy were cruising through SoHo Wednesday night -- looks like they had a 3rd wheel girlfriend with 'em though. As for the dude, he was pretty stylish in a long black coat and knitted cap.

More than anything ... we know he's TALL. Both Malia and Barack are 6'1", and this guy looks to have a good 3 inches on her.

They might be just friends, but those smiles seem more than copacetic. Sorry, Swae Lee.

Blac Chyna At War with Rob & Tyga They're Tag Teaming Me

3/30/2017 1:00 AM PDT

0329-blac-chyna-tyga-rob-kardashian-tmzBlac Chyna's on the attack against Tyga because she thinks baby daddy #1 is teaming up with #2 -- Rob Kardashian -- to spread lies about her.

Sources close to the family tell TMZ ... Chyna went off after she heard Tyga telling people she wants to kiss, make up and get back together with him -- a news flash that came from Rob.

We're told Chyna got pissed because she hardly talks to Tyga, and had only reached out to him recently to demand he pay King's nannies -- even though they'd normally do that on their own.

Other sources tell us Tyga misinterpreted the call from Chyna, and thought she wanted to talk about more than co-parenting ... something he shared with his new bff, Rob. We're told the guys have gotten tight ever since BC and Rob broke up.

The problem's obvious -- Rob and Tyga talk ABOUT Chyna, but Rob's also talking TO Chyna about all of it ... according to our sources.

Y'know the saying: Loose lips sink relationships with baby mamas.
