Tekashi69 Under Investigation In Chief Keef Shooting

6/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cops are taking a hard look at Tekashi69 to see what, if any, role he played in the events leading up to the attempted shooting of Chief Keef ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources say NYPD wants to see if Tekashi has any connection to the 2 men who shot at Keef outside the W Hotel in Times Square. 6ix9ine was in L.A. at the time of the shooting, but we're told cops want to know if he ordered the hit.

We're told NYPD has 2 suspects based on surveillance video, and know they stalked Keef the night of the shooting -- first showing up at China Chalet restaurant where Keef was hanging downtown ... then jumping into a dark-colored Ford Econovan.

After driving to midtown, we're told the suspects parked the van around the block from the W and walked to the hotel to wait for Keef. When the rapper walked outside with a friend to smoke a cig, the suspects pounced. Keef and his friend heard shots and saw a muzzle flash.

As we reported ... the shooters missed, hitting only a nearby sign. We're told the suspects fled in the van. Cops eventually found it in Brooklyn.

Tekashi's denied any involvement. We reached out to NYPD for official comment. So far ... no word back.

Talent agent Tyler Grasham will not face any charges in his sexual assault case being reviewed by the L.A. City Attorney's Office ... TMZ has learned.

But one of them -- by a man alleging Grasham stuck his hand down his pants in 2014 after meeting on Tinder -- was kicked to the City Attorney's Office for possible misdemeanor prosecution.

We've now learned the City Attorney's Office also rejected the case ... again citing that the statute of limitations had run out. Case closed.

According to the docs, the former soap star and his ex, Cheryl Marie, reached an agreement on their divorce back on December 31, 2017. Happy new year, indeed. However, it took several months for the judge to sign off.

The exes have joint legal and physical custody of their 7-year-old son, Antonio III. As for property, he gets the house and a 2015 Fiat. They both agreed to return the Maserati they were leasing.

Antonio has to pay child and spousal support, though it's light for a Hollywood divorce. He'll fork over $533 a month for his kid. Cheryl gets $350 monthly in alimony, but only until April 2019. They were only married for 5 years.

Sabato admitted issues with sleeping pills, but told us he's an outspoken advocate on fighting addiction.

He'll be the Republican candidate for California's 26th District, come November.

Joel McHale My Kids Can Skip College If They Play Fortnite Like Ninja

6/18/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Good news for Joel McHale's kids: you can quit school to play video games!!

Bad news for the McHale children: you just have to be as good at Fortnite as Ninja!!

McHale competed at the Fortnite Pro-Am Tournament earlier this week ... and, since his two kids were with him, we had to ask -- would he let them skip college for the game??

"If they're like Ninja or Myth then, yeah, don't go to college," he told us.

McHale's a funny guy ... but he ain't joking. After all, there's $100 MILLION in Fortnite money up for grabs this season and the way pro gaming is going, the pots are only gonna get bigger!

There is a catch for the McHale boys, though ... Joel says the kids can't just turn on the game "whenever they want" to practice.

Sure sounds like a rigged system to us, Joel.

Tommy Lee Son Rips Him on Father's Day 'I'm Twice The Man You'll Ever Be'

6/17/2018 5:33 PM PDT
Breaking News

7:17 PM PT -- Sources close to Pamela say she stands by Brandon's statement. We're told Pamela left Tommy when their youngest son, Dylan, was just 7 weeks old. For years, Pamela has maintained that the only thing that makes Tommy a "Dad" to Brandon and Dylan is his DNA.

Our sources say Pamela knows her two boys are total gentlemen and the three of them only want the best for Tommy ... they hope he gets help he needs.Tommy Lee's post honoring his dad on Father's Day got shredded to pieces ... by his own son.

In a clear sign there's plenty of bad blood still left between them, Brandon eviscerated his father with a blistering comment on Tommy's Instagram post honoring his father. Tommy starts by offering sobering thoughts about fatherhood but things went south from there ... with shots at his sons and a parting shot at his ex, Pamela Anderson.

Happy Father’s Day fellas! I’m not gonna sit here and post some fluffed up bullshit for the public to read.... I’m gonna be honest- Being a father ain’t easy! I’m so tired of the fake shit I keep seeing all over IG... let’s get real: It’s a rollercoaster ok? My father taught me to respect everyone and everything and to take care of those that I loved. He taught me to appreciate my possessions, and to be grateful for the things I was given. I’ve fucked up at times but I’ve always bounced back. When I had a child, my first child, I wanted to instill those same virtues into him. Sometimes I feel like I failed as a father, because my kids don’t know the value of things. If they break something, they don’t care because they know they’ll just get a new one, if they hurt someone, they don’t care because so many people tell them it’s OK. I never wanted this for my kids. I know I’m not fully to blame, because their mom has a lot to do with it, enabling bad behavior and buying them things when they weren’t good, but I guess I hoped at the end of the day they would end up kind. I love them dearly, don’t get me wrong, but man, sometimes it’s really tough to watch your kids grow up without those morals. Nothing can really prepare you for fatherhood .... I love my boys but they can be assholes too...and that’s the truth (Cue Honest Guy music)

A post shared by ☨☯ɱɱ¥ ᒪ☰☰ (@tommylee) on

Didn't take long for Brandon to clap back, saying, "Remember what happened last time you said this s***? ... You gotta show up to be a Dad big guy. If you think we're so bad (which I can assure you we are not) then you should have showed up to a few more BDays and baseball games. Someone like you couldn’t raise a man like me. I'm twice the man you'll ever be."

Brandon went on to say, "Once again painting our family in a negative light. Who the f*** are you? Just move on dude ... WE ALL HAVE. Or I'll put you right back to f***in sleep."

Things really escalated because moments after that comment, Brandon posted video on his IG of his father unconscious from the night he punched him, which we're told was in self defense.

Look a little sleepy there Tommy. 😴

A post shared by Brandon Thomas Lee (@brandonthomaslee) on

As we reported ... Brandon knocked Tommy out cold after a heated argument back in March turned physical. There was a time when it seemed Brandon and Tommy would patch things up. Brandon eluded as much and Tommy said he didn't want his son prosecuted.

So much for that.

Khloe Kardashian & True Home Sweet Home in L.A.

6/17/2018 10:59 AM PDT

Khloe Kardashian and True got quite the warm welcome home in L.A. ... and it was pretty sweet, literally and figuratively.

Khloe posted this video on Snapchat almost in disbelief at the warm reception she and True got now that they're on the West Coast. Tons of cookies baring True's cute little face. There was also a bunch of balloons ... courtesy of Kylie and Stormi

This is the first time Khloe's with True in L.A. after giving birth to her back in April in Cleveland. As we first reported ... Khloe's plans were to come back to L.A. with True as soon as she was medically cleared to fly. At the time, Khloe and Tristan Thompson's relationship was fractured to say the least. But they seem to have patched things up -- she even showed up to support Tristan and the Cavs in the NBA Finals.

But the Cavs got swept last week. So, with no more NBA to watch, it was apparently time to come back home.

Chinese Tourists Crushed After Ceiling Collapses

6/17/2018 10:30 AM PDT

Horrific scene out of Huayin City in China's Shaanxi Province where a ceiling collapsed ... crushing and trapping tourists riding down an escalator.

The terrible incident happened inside the Huashan Mountain tourist center ... a popular visitors' destination. You can see a throng of tourists going down an escalator when, out of nowhere, they look up and notice the ceiling's about to land on top of them.

It happened so fast they never had the chance to run for cover. The incident triggered immediate panic as tourists rushed to free others trapped under the debris.

At least 9 were injured and taken to a local hospital, though one report says -- perhaps miraculously -- no one was seriously injured. The tourist center is investigating what caused the ceiling to collapse.

Now THIS is a seismic event.

Mexico scored a monumental upset Sunday by beating defending World Cup champion Germany ... courtesy of a brilliant counter attack that culminated with Hirving Lozano's goal. The pro-Mexican crowd in Moscow erupted in celebration but NOTHING like what went down in Mexico City.

The Mexican government reported that a small artificial earthquake was detected "possibly due to massive jumping" when El Tri scored the lone goal 35 minutes into the match. The government also acknowledged the "maximum acceleration" came exactly at the time the goal was scored.

Here's how fans watching the game at Zocalo Square in the heart of Mexico City reacted after "Chucky" scored the game-winning goal. Pure pandemonium!! 

No word yet on whether Mexico's team is aware it's responsible for shaking the Earth.
