Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill Birthday Blowup Led to Breakup

1/9/2017 12:50 AM PST

0106-nicki-minaj-meek-mill-TMZ-01Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill broke up after a nuclear fight during her birthday weekend last month ... and it wasn't about cheating.

Sources close to the ex-couple tell us ... they weren't getting along in Turks and Caicos, because he was hanging with friends and not paying attention to her. She went nuts on him, he got pissed and left the island without her, and she said, "Screw this," and ended the relationship. Just that simple.

There are reports Meek had been cheating with a woman named Sonye Rasool and that's what set off Nicki. A source close to Sonye tells us she and Meek hooked up years before Nicki, but she fully denies any cheating. We're told Sonye's about to file defamation lawsuits against several outlets.

We're also told Sonye understands truth is a defense, but she has no fear.

It's interesting ... the breakup appears to be over the small stuff, which makes you wonder if the door is still open.


Nicki Minaj's Ex Safaree Down for Reunion ... Meek Was Bad for Her Biz

1/6/2017 1:00 AM PST

0105_safaree_nicki_minaj_meek_mill_tmNicki Minaj won't be single for long if she gets on the horn with her ex-fiance and producer, Safaree Samuels ... who's open to rekindling things, and also throwing major shade at Meek Mill.

Nicki's ex thinks it's about time she dropped the Philly rapper because their relationship was always a better look for Meek than her ... according to a rep for Safaree.

The rep tells us Safaree thinks Meek did zilch to boost Nicki's career. Case in point, she didn't release a single new album during nearly 2 years of dating him. Or, as Janet would put it: what has Meek done for you lately?

If this sounds like a swoop in progress, there's a good reason. We're told Safaree never stopped loving Nicki, and is ready and willing to reopen communication ... if she is too.

Of course, their breakup was kinda nasty ... so it's interesting Safaree would come to her defense. Each publicly accused the other of cheating, and he even dropped several breakup raps.

Olive branch extended?


Meek Mill Nicki Needs to Dress Better If She's Leaving Me

1/5/2017 1:01 PM PST

0105-meek-mill-minaj-shoes-instagram-01Meek Mill responded to Nicki Minaj's breakup announcement with a parting shot at her fashion sense. Burn. 

The since-deleted post featured a white shoe and a caption that read: "If you walk out don't wear these they wack...."

The sneaker wedge is the same one Nicki wore in the video for Ciara's 2013 breakup anthem, "I'm Out." Gotta say, Meek firing off style jabs doesn't come off as the greatest comeback ... but we suspect there will be more coming.  


Nicki beat him to the punch by announcing the couple's demise early Thursday morning. They'd been together for almost 2 years.


Nicki Minaj 'I'm Single' And TMZ was Right

1/5/2017 6:51 AM PST

0103-nicki-minaj-meek-mill-tmz-break-up-01Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill are history ... Nicki says she's a single woman, and now we know ride or die has its limits.

Nicki just tweeted, "To confirm, yes I am single."

As for why she's confirming, TMZ's Raquel connected the dots Tuesday ... making a compelling argument the former couple had to do somersaults to avoid each other in Miami over New Year's Eve. They partied separately and on top of that, they were apart on Xmas.

Nicki stuck with Meek during his house arrest and his losing battle with Drake, but at a point, enough was enough.

To quote Drake in "Back to Back, "I don't want to hear about this ever again. Not even when she tell him that they better as friends."


Nicki Minaj, Meek Mill Possibly Over and Out

1/3/2017 10:57 AM PST

0103_nicki-minaj_meek_mill_tmz-bIt's smellin' like a breakup between Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj.

Both Nicki and Meek performed separately in Miami for New Year's Eve, and they also partied separately afterward. Nicki performed at E11even nightclub and then stayed to party. Meek performed at Dream Nightclub 2 miles from E11even and stayed there.  

Nicki showed up at E11even at 11:30 PM, but Meek didn't show up at Dream until 2:40 AM, which would have given him plenty of time to ring in 2017 with Nicki.

Meek was also partying in New York on December 30 ... with Nicki nowhere in sight. On January 1st, Meek went to LIV nightclub in Miami and she wasn't there.

We're told they weren't together on Christmas Day as well.

Given their history of hanging together around the holidays, it's interesting.

Jeanie Buss Predicted Phil Jackson Split ... In 2009

12/31/2016 12:05 AM PST

Call her Nostradamus ... because back in 2009, Jeanie Buss accurately predicted she'd never marry Phil Jackson

We were digging around the ol' TMZ video vault when we found this clip of the couple leaving a wedding in Bev Hills back in the day .... when we asked if they would ever take the plunge. 

Check out Jeanie's answer. 

They did get engaged in 2012 ... after 13 years of dating. But now, they've announced the engagement is off and they're going their separate ways. 

The good news ... Jeanie says they're still on good terms and will remain friends. 

T.I. to Tiny Really, Divorce? Why You Wanna Go and Do That?

12/30/2016 12:50 AM PST

1229-ti-tiny-TMZ-01T.I. has made the first move to end divorce proceedings from Tiny ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources close to Tiny tell TMZ T.I. thinks Tiny has overreacted because they've always gotten through rough patches in their 15-year relationship. He waited a few weeks so she could cool down after filing divorce docs, but now he's trying talk "sense" into her ... that they're good together.

Each thinks the other was pushed by "jealous friends" into filing to end their marriage.  

The 800 pound elephant in the room that's not being addressed ... Floyd Mayweather.

As we reported ... T.I. and Tiny are currently on speaking terms, and have even been romantic together this holiday season. 

Feels like T.I.'s making headway. 

Halle Berry, Olivier Martinez Divorce Final And She Gets Top Billing!

12/29/2016 11:58 AM PST

1228_halle_berry_olivier_martinez_tmz-2Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are officially single ... and he agreed to let her say, "I left you!"

Halle and Olivier filed for divorce at almost the exact same moment back in October 2015 ... she filed as the petitioner and he also filed as the petitioner seeking a divorce.

Under California law only one person can be the petitioner, and Olivier agreed to give Halle the honor.

Under the settlement, they will share physical and legal custody of 3-year-old Maceo.

For some reason, they decided to only deal with the custody issues and the property settlement is still unresolved. It's weird, because our sources say there's a prenup so there shouldn't be big issues.

Halle and Olivier married in 2013. 


'Rogue One' Star Ben Mendelsohn Wife Files for Divorce

12/29/2016 9:52 AM PST

1229-ben-mendelson-wife-emma-forrest-divorce-TMZ-TWITTER-01"Rogue One" star Ben Mendelsohn barely had time to enjoy his movie's big premiere -- his wife filed for divorce just 7 days after it opened.

Emma Nadine Forrest filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, which has all the makings of an uphill battle for Ben. Emma's asking for physical custody of their 3-year-old daughter.

According to the docs ... Emma -- who's a British author -- and Ben officially separated December 1 because of irreconcilable differences. They got married back in June 2012.

She's also asking for spousal support.

Ben played the role of Orson Krennic in the blockbuster film.

T.I. & Tiny Don't Stick a Fork In 'Em Just Yet

12/28/2016 12:21 PM PST

1228-ti-tiny-tmz-02There's still hope for T.I. and Tiny ... because we're told they're still very much on talking terms despite the divorce ... and there are major signs they could call the whole divorce thing off. 

TMZ has learned ... after Tiny filed for divorce Dec. 7, the two have gotten together in person at least twice and sources very close to the couple tell us "things got romantic."

We're told there are still major issues with the relationship -- the word that keeps being thrown around on both sides is "trust."

At the core ... T.I. and Tiny have been together for nearly 20 years and really do seem to love each other.  

By the way, T.I. was at Tiny's home around Christmastime and they got along great.

Bottom line ... if Vegas took action on these two, we'd bet on a reconciliation.

12/27/2016 3:40 PM PST

1227-ti-tiny-divorce-tmz-04T.I.'s wife, Tiny, wants out -- she filed for divorce.

Tiny filed legal docs earlier this month in Georgia's Henry County. They got married back in 2010 and have 3 kids together -- 2 sons and 1 daughter.

We're told the rapper and Tiny had been going through a rough patch that started several months before an awkward photo surfaced showing Tiny pictured with the rapper's nemesis, Floyd Mayweather, and Mariah Carey at her Halloween party.

1024_floyd_tiny_mariah_getty_subAt the time, Tiny chalked to pressure into taking the photo next to the guy T.I.'s had beef with in the past. You'll recall the rapper and Floyd were involved in a crazy brawl on the Vegas strip back in 2014.

Rob & Blac Chyna Breakup Fight Was The Real Deal ... No Cams Rolling

12/24/2016 1:00 AM PST

1223_rob-kardashian-blac-chyna-tmz-2Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna's massive fight ending with Chyna storming out of the house with Dream wasn't drummed up for their show ... in fact, we've learned cameras weren't even rolling when it went down.

Production sources say film crews weren't at Rob's place last Saturday morning when Chyna allegedly got physical with her baby daddy. We're told things were so bad, Corey Gamble had to rip Chyna off of Rob and even called Rob's sisters over ... but Chyna took off before they arrived.

Our sources say reaction interviews were filmed shortly after the fight, but the brawl itself was the real deal.

For what it's worth, we're told the two got back together just a few days after Chyna left and are co-parenting Dream.
