Young Thug Goes Off On Airline Staff Y'all Are Some 'Nappy' Peasants

12/7/2016 5:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Young Thug gave two female Alaska Airlines employees the business for trying to make him miss his flight and his show ... at least that's the way he saw it.

The rapper went in on the women pretty hard -- calling them "peasants" and "ants" with "nappy" hair. You can tell they're pissed as he tried to offer them $15k to quit their jobs.

A rep for the airline tells TMZ ... Thug was supposed to be on a flight from ATL to Seattle, but he arrived after their 45 minute cutoff period. We're told they were still able to get him on a partner flight.

It's unclear if he'll land in time for his 7 PM gig in Seattle.

We don't know what was said before Thug started recording, but the way he treats the women here ... makes him seem like a complete tool.

Brad Pitt Therapists Won't Listen ... Threatens to Go Around Deal with Angelina

12/7/2016 3:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1207-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-tmz-03Brad Pitt thinks he's getting the short end of the stick when it comes to his visitation time with his kids, and has a plan to change that -- but unfortunately for him, their child therapists don't agree.

Brad and Angelina Jolie's lawyers filed a series of emails for Wednesday morning's hearing. In one of them his attorney, Lance Spiegel, says despite Brad complying with every aspect of the child therapy process ... "the therapy team has ignored or disregarded issues that [Brad] has raised." He's not specific about the issues.

It's clear from the docs Brad is frustrated by the limited amount of time he gets with his 6 kids ... 1 visit per week. The issue is, Brad signed a temporary custody deal months ago in which he agreed -- along with Angelina -- they would both let the therapists call the shots.

The emails from Brad's attorney suggest he's trying to circumvent that deal. In fact, Spiegel says "Regardless of [the therapists'] views, there is no reason for Brad not to request court orders" for more access to the kids.

In late November, Brad's lawyer asked if Angelina would agree to the following schedule in December:

- one session with the twins (Knox and Vivienne)
- one session with the middle kids (Zahara and Shiloh)
- one session with the twins AND the middle kids
- one session with the older kids (Maddox and Pax)

The sessions would be monitored and 30-60 minutes long. Spiegel adds, if Maddox and Pax don't want to see him ... Brad wants an extra session with the other 4 kids.

Angelina's team turned down the offer. Her attorney, Laura Wasser, fired off a very firm response saying Brad's team is ignoring what therapists feel is best for the kids. She implores them to give the therapists a chance to "tell us how the kids are feeling." 

As we reported, Brad was shut down in his effort to keep the case sealed ... but it's now clear from these emails he's determined to spend more time with his brood, ASAP.

Matt Barnes & DeMarcus Cousins Sued Over Nightclub Brawl 'Vicious and Unprovoked Attack'

12/7/2016 2:58 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Matt Barnes and DeMarcus Cousins have just been SUED over the nightclub brawl at Avenue in NYC this week ... with the alleged victims claiming they were brutalized by the NBA stars. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the Sacramento Kings teammates were involved in a violent altercation with two people at the VIP booth next to them around 3 AM on Dec. 5. 

According to the lawsuit filed in NYC, Jasmine Besiso and Myrone Powell claim they were innocently hanging out when Barnes approached Jasmine and began to choke her. 

In the suit, Powell says he saw the attack and tried to intervene but that's when Cousins stepped in and punched him in the face. 

At that point, Barnes allegedly released Jasmine's neck and elbowed her in the face -- knocking her unconscious. Myrone claims he was taken to the ground and Barnes and Cousins proceeded to kick and punch him in the head and body. 

The NYPD was called to the scene but Barnes and Cousins had left by the time they arrived. 

A rep for the alleged victims calls the incident a "vicious and unprovoked attack" And says Cousins' initial blow was a "blindside punch."

The rep also says the two were transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital where they were treated for "serious injuries."

A rep for Barnes has previously told us that the NBA stars were the real victims -- who were attacked by the other clubgoers over an accidental bump in the VIP section. 

TMZ Sports obtained video of Barnes and Cousins in the moments after the fight -- rehashing their version of what happened inside.

Bobby Shmurda Less Jail Time On Table In Prison Shank Case

12/7/2016 2:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1207-Bobby-Shmurda-tmzBobby Shmurda's lawyer just pulled a legal rabbit out of the hat -- the rapper has a new opportunity to reduce his prison time. 

Shmurda was in court Tuesday with attorney Alex Spiro for allegedly getting caught with a shank behind bars. We're told prosecutors are offering Bobby the chance to plead guilty to a reduced charge of "attempted promoting prison contraband." If he does he could get 1 to 4 years.

Bobby's already serving 7 years for his murder conspiracy case, but if he takes the plea deal for the shank ... the sentence will run concurrently.

Sources close to Bobby say his friends, family and lawyers are all pushing him to take the deal. They're concerned because he's been a loose cannon in court lately.

One of Bobby's counterparts was sentenced to 98 years back in May ... so the possibility of him getting out in anything less than 10 is some damn good deal. Shmurda can think over his decision on the plea until a January 7 hearing.

We reached out to Spiro ... but he had no comment. 

Kim & Kanye There's No Divorce in the Works

12/7/2016 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1207-kim-kanye-tmz-2Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are going through intense emotional struggles -- dealing with the robbery and his breakdown -- but none of it adds up to divorce.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, recent reports Kim's planning to hightail it out of her marriage are total BS. In fact, we're told since Kim's robbery and Kanye's hospitalization, they've grown closer and rely on each other more than ever for support.

Since he's been home, we're told Kanye's been getting much needed rest and spending time with his kids. We're told he's recovered enough to start working again, but still not overwhelming himself with big projects.

Another good sign for Kanye, and for the marriage, we're told they went out for dinner at a friend's house Tuesday night.

Stevie J & Joseline Hernandez Cops Called Over Her Jealous Rage

12/7/2016 12:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Joseline Hernandez went BALLISTIC when she found out some chick was hanging at Stevie J's pad and that's why she went on the attack ... at least that's what Stevie told cops.

The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star called Atlanta PD Sunday and told them Joseline became real violent and attempted to punch and scratch him ... this according to the police report.

Stevie claimed Joseline busted his face and injured his eyes ... but cops said they saw no visible injuries. They also advised him to get a restraining order, but he hasn't. Joseline -- who should pop out a baby girl in a matter of weeks -- wasn't there when cops showed up. 

Sources tell TMZ ... Joseline had been under the impression Tommie Lee was the chick at Stevie's crib but we're told it was actually someone else. Tommie and Joseline, of course, have a nasty history.

The next day ... Sandy Springs PD were called after Stevie said she assaulted him again. According to the police report ... Stevie says Joseline used her hands, feet and teeth to attack him.

We got them leaving court Tuesday -- Stevie's sticking to his story while Joseline appears unfazed.

We broke the story ... Stevie's asking the court to order a psychological evaluation for Joseline.

Brad Pitt Judge Denies Emergency Sealing in Custody Case

12/7/2016 10:46 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1207-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-tmz-02Brad Pitt's effort to seal his and Angelina Jolie's custody battle from the public was rejected by the judge Wednesday morning.

We broke the story ... Brad requested an emergency hearing to address locking down all the proceedings related to their war over their 6 kids. Lawyers for both sides marched into court, but the judge quickly denied Brad's request.  

His side has been fuming since Jolie filed their temporary custody arrangement in court last week -- a move Brad believes only served to air their dirty laundry in public and damage the children.

We're told Angelina felt it necessary to file the docs in order to have the court enforce the terms -- specifically the part about letting a therapist make the call on when Brad can start having unmonitored visits.

In docs, Angelina's lawyer says Brad's effort to seal the whole case isn't so much about protecting the children -- as his side has claimed -- but more about keeping his own actions hidden ... because it was "[Brad's] conduct at the center of the DCFS and FBI investigations."

Sources connected to the case tell us Brad has been trying to "push past the process." As one source put it, he was acting like a "celebrity who is used to getting whatever he wants" ... and after the DCFS investigation cleared him of criminal wrongdoing, what he wanted was to have solo time with the children. 

Our Brad sources deny he's made any effort to change the temporary custody deal.

We're told Angelina also wants the whole case to remain private -- as long as Brad sticks to the custody arrangement they both signed off on months ago.

  

Kylie Jenner Breaking Up with One of Her FOUR Homes

EXCLUSIVE

1207_kylie_jenner_hidden_hills_home_for_Sale_launchKylie Jenner's bailing out after just 4 months ... she's unloading her Hidden Hills, CA home -- don't worry she has 3 backups.

TMZ has learned Kylie's unloading the pad she bought in August, when she planned to make it her primary residence. But woman's intuition stepped in, and she fell in love with her newest pad instead. No wonder ... that one is worth about $12 mil.

The bright side for Kylie -- she bought this 4 bed, 4 bath home for just $4.5 million, so she stands to make a nice profit of just under a mil if she and her agent, Tomer Fridman, can sell near listing price.

Trevor Noah Calm Down, People Tomi's Cupcakes Were From My Team ... Not Me!

12/7/2016 11:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1207_trevor_noah_Tomi-Lahren_tmzTrevor Noah wants to make it clear -- he did not personally send Tomi Lahren cupcakes ... and certainly not as any form of apology.

Many 'Daily Show' fans got pissed when Tomi posted a photo of herself holding a cupcake, claiming Trevor sent it to her. They took it as a sign he was going soft and saying sorry for grilling her on his show.

But sources close to the situation tell us ... Lahren's peeps got an email from Noah's peeps asking for her studio's address because they simply wanted to send her a thank you gift. We're told she got the cupcakes and a card ... which was signed by "The Daily Show" -- not Trevor Noah.

So, they might still be friends ... but probably not besties.
