Tekashi69 Former Booking Agency Calls BS on $3.6 MIL Deal

11/17/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 is full of s**t if he thinks he was cheated out of a $3.6 million deal by his former booking agency ... so says a rep for the agency. 

Tekashi went on an all out assault on MTA Booking during an interview on "The Breakfast Club" Friday. He claimed the company stole a ton of cash from him ... and said he only received a couple hundred thousand dollars from what should have been a $3.6 million deal.

A rep for MTA tells us there never was a $3.6 million concert deal ... that was only something that came up in discussions as a possibility ... and the agency went above and beyond for Tekashi.

We're told MTA & Tr3way Entertainment handled the rapper's security, travel, transportation and worked around the clock to make sure he made it to his multiple court appearances safely. 

MTA tells us they booked 9 upcoming U.S. shows and 2 in Mexico for Tekashi -- all of which he promoted -- and was sent a $700k deposit for those. There were also 5 in Germany already booked for which he was paid close to $160k in deposits. 

MTA tells us they're considering serious legal action against 6ix9ine for bashing them on "The Breakfast Club."

Tekashi's attorney, Lance Lazzaro, hit back against MTA, telling TMZ, "We have asked [MTA] to show us any contracts with Tekashi69's signature showing they were acting as an agent to book performances on his behalf and they haven't provided us with any to date ... Their cooperation has been very limited."

He also stated, "I would take anything MTA says with a grain of salt," and added that they have asked MTA to cease and desist from booking any more shows for 6ix9ine.

EXCLUSIVE

Robin Thicke and April Love Geary lost it all in California's wildfires ... but you wouldn't it know it based on the new perspective they've gained in the aftermath of the inferno.

We got the couple Friday in Bev Hills and asked how they were holding up after their Malibu home burned to the ground. The singer told us they haven't even started thinking about rebuilding yet ... instead, they're squarely focused on something bigger than their own property.

We also asked them about P!nk and Carey Hart's issue with looters. As we reported, Carey put any potential looters on notice with a pretty menacing photo. Let's just say Robin doesn't share that concern, but for a very sad reason.

Still, you gotta love their attitude in this clip, in the face of such tremendous loss.

Dana White To Floyd Mayweather Want $150 Million? ... Fight Khabib In The UFC

11/17/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dana White's FIRING BACK at Floyd Mayweather -- sayin' if he wants a 9-figure payday for fighting Khabib, it's gotta be in the UFC.

TMZ Sports saw the UFC honcho outside the Montage in L.A. and asked him about Floyd's make-or-break terms for the potential megafight with the UFC champ.

Remember, earlier this week, F.M. told us, "It's my way, my rules. I'm Floyd 'Money' Mayweather!" 

So, you could say Dana/Khabib and Floyd are at a stalemate.

"The answer is 'no.' He's gonna have to come here and get his ass whoopin'," White said ... "We did that last time. You gotta come here this time."

"Every time he wants to box. You wanna fight? Want to make 150 million? Come over here and get your ass whooped."

So, unless someone gives in ... this thing ain't happening. 

Speaking of fights that seem unlikely to go down ... Dana also addresses the rumored Conor McGregor vs. Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone fight.

Exclusive Details

Hailey Baldwin is dunzo! Instead, Hailey Bieber is taking her place in the most meaningful way possible ... on social media. 

Justin Bieber's wife just changed her Instagram handle to @HaileyBieber, a move Biebs himself put in motion. Our IG sources tell us Justin's team reached out to the platform Friday to ask about updating her account.

We're guessing Hailey's 15.3 million followers -- not to mention his 102 million -- will go berserk over this. The name change comes roughly two months after they got hitched in a super secret ceremony at an NYC courthouse

She was already wearing the name proudly on a denim jacket Thursday night at an NYC Levi's event. 

There were signs Hailey had rebranding on the brain ... because, as we reported, she filed to trademark her new name -- in case she wants to slap it on some merchandise, and also to block anyone else from doing it.

Point is ... she's becoming a true Belieber, in spirit and name.

Justin Bieber Egging Lawsuit Settles!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber just settled a lawsuit that lasted nearly 5 years ... and there ain't nothing over easy about this one.

TMZ has learned the never-ending saga that began in January 2014 when Justin and his buddies hurled eggs at the house owned by warring neighbor Jeffrey Schwartz has finally settled.

TMZ broke a bunch of these stories ... Justin was charged with criminal vandalism and ultimately pled no contest to the crime. He was placed on probation and ordered to perform 40 hours of community service. He had to attend anger management classes -- 12 hours of them.

Justin paid Schwartz $80,000 in restitution in the criminal case ... something to do with fancy, expensive Italian plaster.

But, that was just the beginning. Schwartz filed a civil lawsuit for emotional distress, loss of income and various other items that dragged on in the courts forever. There were depositions, threats, more threats, and on and on.

Well, TMZ just got a document in the case that says, "Counsel specially appearing represents the matter has resolved in its entirety."

The terms of the settlement are confidential. We don't know if Bieber paid Schwartz any additional loot.
