Jay-Z, Kanye West Plan Summit to Bury Hatchet In Latest Feud

9/20/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West and Jay-Z will be meeting face-to-face soon to squash their latest beef, and if they smoke the peace pipe it will end a lawsuit that looms over their multi-million dollar Tidal dispute.

Sources close to Yeezy and Hova with direct knowledge of the situation tell us, their lawyers have been trying to settle a $3.5 million dispute Kanye has with Tidal. As we reported, Kanye had fired off a letter to Tidal stating his contract with them was over because Tidal didn't live up to his end of the bargain. Specifically, Kanye says he didn't get advances and bonuses that totaled $3.5 mil.

We're told Kanye and Jay have not agreed to settle, and the reason became apparent to everyone. The impasse had nothing to do with their business dispute -- $3.5 mil is peanuts to both of them. They couldn't settle because they each harbor animosity toward the other.

Jay was enraged when Kanye attacked Beyonce and Blue Ivy at his concert last October. Kanye felt Jay should have cut him a break because that was the time he was melting down and just a few weeks after the concert, he was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold.

As one source put it, "The Generals [Kanye and Jay] have to meet face-to-face. When that happens, the resolving the money dispute is a piece of cake."  

We're told Kanye is up for the meeting and Jay is also inclined to meet. It shouldn't be hard. Now that Jay and Bey live in a Bel-Air mansion, they are literally down the street from Kanye and Kim.

We're told the meeting should go down soon, and once it does their Tidal dispute will quickly end.

9/18/2017 4:31 PM PDT

5:05 PM PT -- Sources connected with Ryan tell TMZ, Elsie showed up to Ryan's house uninvited and under the influence several days after he broke up with her.  They say she was the one who attacked Ryan and refused to leave his home.  He removed her from the premises and he claims she fell and hurt herself.

Sources close to Ryan say the L.A. City Attorney refused to prosecute after investigating, and they claim she's filed this lawsuit out of revenge. We're told Ryan's side finds it amusing Elsie has sent glamour shots of herself to the media and is out for money and fame.

Ryan Phillippe's girlfriend has just filed a lawsuit against the actor, claiming he abuses cocaine, ecstasy, psychedelic mushrooms and steroids, and has beaten her badly.

Elsie Hewitt claims in the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, on July 4th, she went to pick up things from his house and she realized he was extremely drunk. She says after she tried talking with him he attacked her, grabbed her upper arm so hard it left heavy bruises and violently threw her down the stairs as hard as he could.

She claims he continued his assault and picked her up like a doll and threw her down the stairs again. He then screamed, "Get the f*** out of my house you crazy c**t."

She went to the hospital, cops took a report and she got a protective order.

She suffered chest wall pain, abrasions and severe bruising. 

She wants more than $1 million.

Anthony Scaramucci: Gisele Blocked Tom from White House ... Jealousy Over Ivanka?

9/18/2017 1:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Anthony Scaramucci believes it was Gisele who stopped Tom Brady from joining the Patriots on their Super Bowl trip to Donald Trump's White House ... strongly insinuating the supermodel didn't want Tom around Ivanka Trump.

The Mooch -- Trump's former White House communications director -- guest hosted "TMZ Live" Monday -- when we asked straight-up about the alleged rift between the POTUS and the GOAT.

A.S. says he didn't have direct knowledge of the situation -- but strongly suggested Gisele shut Brady down ... saying, "I think she's possessive of him and probably didn't want him there."

Mooch suggests Gisele may have been jealous of Ivanka Trump -- saying he thinks Brady and Ivanka may have dated at one point in the past.

In fact, back in 2004 ... Donald praised Tom as a great guy who would make a "great combination" with Ivanka.

Despite the Moochsinuation, a source connected to the Trump family tells us, "While they have known each other for years, this is not true."

For the record, Tom claimed the reason he missed the White House visit was to spend time with his ailing mother.

Sean Spicer Crashes Emmys to Mock Trump

9/17/2017 5:34 PM PDT

Sean Spicer seems to have fully turned on Donald Trump ... 'cause he just made a cameo at the Emmys to dog his former boss alongside Stephen Colbert

Colbert, who's hosting this year, was going in on the Prez at the start of the show Sunday when he eventually cracked a joke about the size of the audience, saying it was impossible to know how big it was without some help. That's when he intro'd Spicer, who came onstage with his signature podium. 

Spicer came out suited and booted and did a callback to one of his first press conferences under Trump, saying ... "This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period! Both in person and around the world." Colbert quipped ... "Wow, that really soothes my ego."

The audience roared at the surprise visit from the former White House Press Secretary, who resigned earlier this year

Blac Chyna to Rob Kardashian It'll Take 7 Figure$ To Settle Revenge Porn Case

9/16/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna may be settling her custody war with Rob Kardashian ... but she's not done with him in court.

Sources close to BC tell TMZ ... Chyna did NOT settle her beef with Rob over his revenge porn meltdown .... when he plastered nude pics of her all over social media.  

Chyna is determined to get her pound of flesh from Rob, in the form of 7 figures. She's still fuming over losing a couple of weight-loss endorsements, she says because the pics made it apparent she's had plastic surgery and the companies want au naturel.  

Our Chyna sources say she has a meeting with Rob's team -- presumably with her lawyer Lisa Bloom -- and a big fat check needs to be passed across the table or she'll see him in court.

TMZ broke the story, Chyna will get $20k a month from Rob in child support.

Stay tuned. 

Rob and Blac Chyna Settle Custody War Abuse Allegations Dropped ... for a Price

9/15/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have settled their custody war, TMZ has learned, and Rob paid a heavy price to get her to drop her domestic violence allegations.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Rob and Chyna have agreed to joint custody of 10-month-old Dream. We're told under the deal, Rob gets a skosh more than 50% custody.  

Now the money. We're told Rob drew the line during negotiations at $10k a month for child support, but she wanted north of $50k. There was some horse-trading, we're told, and Rob agreed to double his offer and pay Chyna $20k a month, and she agreed in return to drop her domestic violence allegations.

You'll recall, Chyna got a restraining order against Rob after claiming he allegedly beat her up and threatened to kill himself.  

As for the $20k a month, we're told a chunk of that will go directly to nannies. We're told Rob is concerned about Chyna's parenting. Sources say she left Dream at home this weekend while she left to party, and he wants to make sure there are enough nannies to protect the kid.

And, Rob has agreed to pay Chyna's legal bill, which is not chump change.

Mel B Under Criminal Investigation For Witness Tampering

9/11/2017 11:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mel B has been accused of intimidating a witness who was prepared to testify against her in her bitter divorce war with Stephen Belafonte, and police have opened a felony investigation.

Rapper Siya, who starred in "Sisterhood of Hip Hop," filed a police report Monday, claiming Mel B sent her texts last Saturday threatening her if Siya dared testify against her ... this according to law enforcement sources.

Our sources say Siya showed police the text messages and a felony witness intimidation case was opened.

We're told Siya was prepared to contradict Mel B and testify Belafonte never physically abused his wife. Siya claims she was a close friend of both Mel B and Belafonte. Sources connected with Mel B dispute that, saying Mel B only met Siya a couple of times.

We're told in addition to disputing Mel B's claims of abuse, Siya is prepared to testify Mel B frequently used illegal drugs. She's also prepared to testify about the 3-ways between Mel B, Belafonte and their nanny, Lorraine Gilles. Siya claims Mel B was the one who called the shots in the 3-ways.

Sources connected to Mel B are calling BS on Siya's allegation of witness intimidation.

Charles Oakley Blasts James Dolan, Knicks In Scathing New Lawsuit

9/12/2017 7:30 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Charles Oakley tears into the NY Knicks as the "laughingstock" of the NBA -- and rips owner James Dolan as an incompetent, insecure liar in a brand new lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports

Oak is suing Dolan and the Knicks over that infamous Feb. 2017 incident when Oakley was forcibly removed from Madison Square Garden and arrested following an altercation with security.

In his suit, filed in federal court in NY, Oakley says Dolan had it out for him from the moment he took over the team because Charles refused to "kiss the ring."

"Dolan constantly disrespected Mr. Oakley, refusing to make eye contact or shake his hand during meetings, denying the type of fan appreciation nights given to much less popular and successful members of the Knicks."

The coup de grace ... Oakley says Dolan made him buy his own tickets to Knicks games while routinely treating other retired players to free courtside seats.

Oakley says things came to a head on Feb. 8 ... when Dolan ordered security to remove him from the building and a physical altercation ensued. Oakley says Dolan then ran a smear campaign, falsely accusing him of being an alcoholic who was drunk at the Garden.

In fact, Oakley points to an ESPN Radio interview in which Dolan said Charles "may have a problem with alcohol" and then claimed Oak was verbally abusive to MSG staff.

Oakley says he was neither intoxicated nor otherwise behaving inappropriately that night.

Oakley is suing for defamation, assault, battery, false imprisonment and more. Oakley does not specify how much money he's seeking.

We spoke with Oak's attorney, Douglas Wigdor, who tells us, "While the facts of the complaint speak for themselves, Mr. Oakley filed this lawsuit out of principle and his desire to hold Mr. Dolan accountable for his actions which I can assure you that our Firm is committed to doing on his behalf."

A rep for the Knicks tells us, "this is a frivolous lawsuit and nothing more than another attempt by Mr. Oakley to garner attention. We will deal with this accordingly." 

Paul Pierce Olive Branch to Ray Allen ... 'Let's Bury the Hatchet'

9/11/2017 10:47 AM PDT

Here's Paul Piece and Ray Allen proving not even a homewrecker named LeBron James can stand in the way of true brotherhood, with the two ex-Celtics officially squashing the beef after a pretty nasty breakup.

Allen had been on the outs with his old C's running mates (Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo) ever since he bolted Boston in 2012 to sign with the hated rival Miami Heat ... and LeBron.

The feud had gotten pretty nasty (and pretty public) -- but when the two came face-to-face at a celebrity game in China, it was all love.

"Time to get the band back together," Pierce said in a post on Instagram ... "No matter what happen we all formed a special bond that can never b broken #onceacelticalwaysaceltic."

He tagged Rondo and KG in the post and added the hashtag, "#burythehatchet."

Pierce, KG, Rondo and some other teammates opened up about the feud back in May -- with Pierce saying he was hurt that Allen left the squad without ever calling him to talk about it.

So, friends again???

Hillary Clinton on Trump His Inauguration Speech Was A 'Cry from the White Nationalist Gut'

9/10/2017 10:32 AM PDT

Hillary Clinton thinks Donald Trump's Inauguration speech was actually a rallying cry for white nationalists ... and she blurted that out on national television. 

HC was being interviewed by CBS Sunday, reflecting on her election loss (again) when she started describing the conundrum of whether she oughta show to Trump's Inauguration -- y'know, 'cause she lost to him ... but is also a former First Lady.

That's when she gets to her "out of body" experience on the platform listening to Trump's first speech as Prez ... which she calls a "cry from the white nationalist gut."

Basically ... she thinks Trump squandered an opportunity to unite the country, and instead played to his base with harsh rhetoric ... and, apparently, white nationalist sentiments. 

We'll let Hil (and Trump) speak for themselves.

Kanye and Jay-Z Close to Ending Latest Feud

9/9/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West has reached out to Jay-Z to bury the hatchet in their latest feud ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Kanye asked for a face-to-face with Jay, to hash out the beef that was ignited when Kanye went onstage last Fall and went after Jay, Beyonce and even Blue Ivy.

Jay said he paid no mind to Kanye targeting him, but going after his family crossed the line. And Jay called Kanye out in the song "Kill Jay Z." Kanye's people feel Jay should cut him some slack because Kanye wasn't in his right mind ... Kanye went on the rant shortly before his hospitalization.

It's interesting ... TMZ broke the story Kanye and Jay are embroiled in a financial dispute over Yeezy's Tidal deal and millions are in contention. Yet we're told money is not the source of conflict between the 2 men. They both have plenty. It's all about their relationship.

One source says they seem to be reconciling, adding they have the classic love/hate relationship and frequently bounce back between the 2 emotions.

As for the Tidal dispute, we're told it's being hashed out.

Cardi B Celebrates 'Bodak Yellow' Success With Hard Sex

9/9/2017 6:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B is at the top of the world and near the top of the charts, so what better way to celebrate than doin' the deed.

Cardi has reason to celebrate ... "Bodak Yellow" is currently #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. She's coy about a possible feud with Nicki Minaj, but there's a buzz she's going to do a collab with Remi Ma, so a rap war seems likely.

As for who Cardi wants to take down in celebration of "Bodak Yellow"... well, she tells us.

Taylor Swift You Can Have Your Corner Back, Kylie ... Now That I'm No. 1

9/5/2017 2:37 PM PDT

Taylor Swift came, saw -- made things awkward -- but ultimately conquered ... so she's done sharing corner space with Kylie Jenner.

Taylor and Kylie's billboard turf war on Santa Monica Blvd. in WeHo proved to be short-lived ... Taylor's billboard pimping her single "Look What You Made Me Do" has been replaced by Sam Smith, whose new music drops Friday.

It's unclear when the billboard was replaced ... but it makes sense after Taylor easily shot up to No. 1 on Spotify's global chart with over 44 MILLION streams. For what it's worth, "Life of Kylie" has struggled in TV ratings. 

Take it away, Sammy!
