Derek Fisher Will Kobe Be at My Wedding? Well, Here's the Thing ...

6/10/2018 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher were teammates for 13 years with the Los Angeles Lakers, so when Fisher gets hitched to "Basketball Wives" star Gloria Govan ... Mamba HAS to be there right?

NOT SO FAST.

We got Fisher out at LAX, and talked to him all about who may, or may not be there when he and Govan jump the broom ... and it seems there's a pretty decent chance Kobe WON'T be there.

"I mean, we'll see. It depends on how many people we decide to have there. If we decide it's just family, then it's just family."

So, Kobe's not family?! Weddings come with tough choices ... 

Fisher also gave us his feelings on Shaq's ex-wife, Shaunie O'Neal, basically saying she wouldn't -- under any circumstances -- be caught dead at the wedding.

Here's a hint: He doesn't give a damn.

Jennifer Williams & Tim Norman Denied Restraining Orders Against Each Other

6/8/2018 1:09 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Williams and Tim Norman suffered a double whammy ... both were denied restraining orders against one another ... TMZ has learned.

The reality stars-turned-exes got shut down after the court found no reason to grant the restraining orders.

You'll recall ... Jennifer alleged Tim -- whose real name is James -- had a tendency to be violent and threatening during their relationship, and that he was allegedly stalking and harassing her. Tim alleged Jennifer slashed his tires and once tried running him over with a car.

Both stars accused the other of trying to drum up publicity for their respective reality shows -- "Basketball Wives" for Jennifer and OWN's "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" for Tim.

They were initially granted temporary restraining orders against each other, but their quest to make it permanent was denied.

Shaunie O'Neal Gloria Govan & Derek Fisher's Wedding? IT'S A NO FOR ME

6/4/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Seems there's only one way Shaunie O'Neal would attend Gloria Govan & Derek Fisher's wedding ... OVER HER DEAD BODY ... telling TMZ Sports that's one party she ain't down for.

Derek & Shaq won 3 rings together as Lakers and were tight bros, so one might assume Shaunie could possibly want to attend the nuptials.

Hell no. We got Shaunie at LAX and asked her if she plans on attending, and if the words out of her mouth didn't tell the whole story, the look on her face CLEARLY did.

"No, I don't so. No, I don't think I'll be going to that."

If you didn't know, the ladies have deep issues, stemming from Shaunie's belief that Gloria's sister, Laura, was messing around with Shaq while Shaunie was married to the Diesel.

It led to a HUGE blowup on a past episode of 'Basketball Wives' where Shaunie confronted Gloria ... and it's clear the whole thing isn't water under the bridge.

We're not sure whether it'll be chicken or fish at the wedding ... but, in this case ... it's clearly beef.

Jennifer Williams Tim Norman Should Go Directly to Jail

4/10/2018 6:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-"Basketball Wives" star Jennifer Williams says she's fighting for her own safety and not a reality TV show storyline or ratings by taking her ex, Tim Norton, to court.

We got Jennifer leaving the courthouse in downtown L.A. Monday where she and Tim are seeking permanent restraining orders from one another. He alleges she slashed his tires, but Jennifer says he's the one that's been stalking her.

Tim's argument is that she's doing it for ratings, but Jennifer says she doesn't need Tim for ratings especially since she's the one on the bigger reality show ... but she does need him to do something else.

'Sweetie Pie's' Star Tim Norman Jennifer Williams is a Vengeful Liar

3/29/2018 1:58 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The star of "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" is firing back at ex-gf "Basketball Wives" star Jennifer Williams, calling BS on her claims she was abusive to her.

James "Tim" Norman says Jennifer is being incredibly vindictive after producers of "Sweetie Pie's"  pressed him to get engaged to her but he wasn't into it. Jennifer got a restraining order, claiming he was prone to violence and was stalking her to drum up attention for his show.

Tim says she's the vicious one, saying she tried to run him down in her car. He also says she slashed his tires. Tim says Jennifer is also pissed off because he closed the cash register drawer on her, refusing to bankroll her online business, "Classy Girl Wardrobe."

He also says she's just trying to create a storyline on "Basketball Wives" to keep herself relevant. 

One more thing ... he says she stole money from him. 

Evelyn Lozada If My Life Was On The Line ... I'd Call Chad Johnson

3/13/2018 4:05 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada says if her life were on the line and she could only call one of her exes to save her ... she'd call Chad Johnson in a heartbeat.

Shaunie O'Neal and Evelyn were on "Van Lathan's The Red Pill Podcast" when Lathan asked each lady which one of their famous exes they'd call if they were in a life-threatening situation and could only call one.

Shaunie went with Shaq (duh, they have a perfect post-marriage life) while Evelyn chose the Ex-NFL star.

"Chad. And not that I don't have faith in Carl, Carl would be there, but we're talking about if my life is on the line."

The Carl she's referring to is ex-MLB star Carl Crawford, who Lozada was engaged to and had a son with before they broke up last year.

As for Lozada, she was married to Ochocinco for a little over a month in 2012 before a highly publicized domestic violence incident led to divorce.

Evelyn said she's not at all overlooking that or saying it's not a big deal, but based on the question, it's Chad over Crawford and former NBA star Antoine Walker ... her other famous ex. 

"We're talking about if your life was on the line -- just think about the question."

'Basketball Wives' Star Jennifer Williams My Ex Is Abusive Please, Judge, I Need a Restraining Order

1/29/2018 10:38 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Basketball Wives" star Jennifer Williams has fired back at her ex-boyfriend, claiming he's violent and she's deathly afraid of him.

Jennifer was in court Monday AM asking a judge for a domestic violence restraining order against James "Tim" Norman. He obtained a restraining order against her last month, claiming she slashed his tires in a rage.

Jennifer says in her new legal docs Norman is lying "purely to harass and stalk me, and possibly to drum up attention for himself and his own television show." He has a show called "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's," which is on Oprah's OWN network.

Jennifer says she did not slash Norman's tires ... she has an alibi, claiming she was at a friend's birthday brunch.

She says in her legal docs Norman has a long history of abusing her. She says in Sept 2016 at a Drake concert he verbally abused her and threatened to beat up a guy who was looking at her. Jennifer says Norman sent her a text message afterward, saying, "I'm not really the type of bitch n**** you obviously think I am for you to stand there next to me eyeing that sand n****."

Jennifer says there were other instances ... he went on her phone, confronted her and threw the phone at her, calling her a lying bitch. She says he accused her of sleeping with other men.

She says she ended the relationship last September, and since then he has been hounding her friends, asking them to get in touch with her on his behalf.

She's currently in court and has a witness ... fellow "Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada. Evelyn filed a declaration saying Jennifer called her on December 17 and said she was extremely afraid of Norman because he could be very violent.

Steph Curry I'm Making Real Progress To Buy Panthers with Diddy!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Steph Curry tells TMZ Sports the talk about teaming up with Diddy to buy the Carolina Panthers is 100 percent real ... and he's taking steps toward getting a deal done.

Steph was out in Beverly Hills Friday with his wife, Ayesha, when he told us he's getting closer to buying his beloved football team, and says ... "This is a real thing, so hopefully it happens sooner than later."

Curry says he's been in contact with Diddy and they're formulating a strategy to make a legit play for ownership of the NFL team ... but there's a lot of work to do still.

There's more -- since Ayesha's an accomplished chef with her own restaurant, we asked what she would cook for their good friends, the Obamas ... and wait 'til you hear the answer.

Seems like it would be a fun dinner party.

Ex-'Basketball Wives' Star My Ex is Stalking, Harassing Me Give Me Protection Too!

12/21/2017 11:26 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-'Basketball Wives' star Jennifer Williams is firing back at her ex who just got a temporary restraining order against her, claiming he's stalking and harassing her ... and she's scared for her life.

Jennifer filed for her own restraining order Wednesday on the heels of her ex-BF James "Tim" Norman being granted one himself after he claimed she slashed his tires and worse.

In her own petition for protection -- which was ultimately denied until a judge can talk to 'em both in court -- she says Tim has been leaking info that she says was stolen from her phone in an attempt to embarrass her, while also claiming he's been stalking her.

Jennifer says she wants a judge to throw down the hammer on Tim and force him to leave her alone so she can move on. She also says he's got at least 4 guns, and she's fearful for her own safety.

BTW ... she's also afraid he will harm a dog named Gia -- which is presumably her pup.

Ex-'Basketball Wives' Star Ex-BF Runs to Court ... She Slashed My Tires and Worse!!!

12/19/2017 4:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

12/20 10:30 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Williams went to the station and accused Norman of stalking her, claiming she spotted him driving past her house a few times last week and he was even parked in front of it one day. However, we're told there's no investigation into Norman at this time.

Ex-"Basketball Wives" star Jennifer Williams allegedly has it out for her ex-boyfriend, who claims she tried to run him down with her car once.

James "Tim" Norman filed for a restraining order against Jennifer, and in the docs says she's taken rage out on his car. James says he was driving around Sunday afternoon in L.A. when he spotted Jennifer tailing him. 

According to the docs, James parked at home and an hour later went outside to find 2 of his tires slashed. He reported it to cops, and says this was just the latest incident. In the docs, he says last summer -- when they were still dating, mind you -- Jennifer got behind the wheel of HIS car, and tried to run him down. James -- who's on the reality show "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" -- says he had to dive out of the way or die.

He also claims she's broken into his pad, sent him harassing texts and threatened he's "playing with the wrong one." James says they broke up in September, and Jen's just angry he's moved on with a new gf. 

The restraining order was granted, and Jennifer has to stay 100 yards away. We've reached out to Jennifer's reps.

Gabrielle Union Don't Be Ashamed to Eat Butt

10/20/2017 2:55 PM PDT

"So, how old were you when you first ate a butt?"

That's a real question Sway asked Gabrielle Union during his radio show in a conversation about sexual reciprocity ... a conversation that has everyone grabbing some Scope. 

Gabby appeared on "Sway in the Morning" and talked openly about sex -- and that's when tossed salads appeared on the menu. 

Dwyane Wade's wife says even though men will deny it, they enjoy a little backdoor love from women ... and they're singing a completely different tune in the bedroom. 

Butt -- it's what's for dinner.
