Kathy Griffin Restraining Order Against Neighbor Tossed

2/21/2018 5:00 PM PST
Breaking News

Kathy Griffin's request for a restraining order in her ongoing feud with a neighbor has been denied.

A judge just tossed Griffin's request to keep Jeffrey Mezger away from her, and also ruled she can only record video -- not audio -- from one of her security cams. You may recall, Mezger alleged she was spying on him and his family with the cameras. Kathy can continue recording from all other cameras.

As we reported ... Kathy went to court to get protection for herself and her boyfriend, Randy Bick, after claiming Mezger uncorked an expletive-laced rant.

Kathy claimed she recorded Mezger saying, "Hey Randy, go f*** yourself ... Now you're calling the cops? F**k you and f**k Kathy."

Mezger fired back and got a temporary restraining order to block Kathy from recording him. There's a hearing in that case next month.

'Teen Mom 2' Star Kailyn Lowry Jenelle's Hubby Has Gotta Go Over Anti-LGBTQ Comments

2/20/2018 10:13 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

11:16 AM PT -- David's page has been removed from Twitter.

Kailyn Lowry's disgusted by what her "Teen Mom 2" castmate said about gay and trans people, and wants him axed from the show ... TMZ has learned.

Kailyn's responding to Monday's online rant by Jenelle Evans' husband, David Eason, in which he said ... "Lmao why don't you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals? Oh I forgot thats supposed to be normal."

He added he's not going to let his children associate with LGBTQ people or "be that way."

Kailyn tells us she's extremely disappointed in Eason, wants nothing to do with him and doesn't want her kids around him. She says she feels bad for his children for having to "grow up with someone that clearly holds so much hate towards others."

She says there's plenty of precedent for what happens to TV personalities who make bigoted, hateful comments -- they get the boot ... and it should be no different for Eason.

Michael Rapaport Really Fired from Real Job ... Says Barstool Prez

2/19/2018 11:48 AM PST
Exclusive Details

It seemed like a joke, but Barstool Sports president Dave Portnoy tells TMZ Sports the organization REALLY did fire Michael Rapaport this weekend after he insulted the company's fans.

It all started when Rap posted a tweet saying "Stoolies" are losers in life. Portnoy says he and the rest of the staff took offense ... "That was the ultimate deal-breaker."

Portnoy says Rapaport was under contract with Barstool -- as part of the deal, he would create original content like viral videos and Barstool would "rep" Michael's popular podcast, "I Am Rapaport."

It seemed the two sides had a great business relationship -- but Portnoy says it turned into an "utter and complete train wreck."

Portnoy tried to fire Rapaport over text message -- but accidentally sent it to NFL insider Ian Rapaport instead. Eventually, Michael got the message. 

"To me, it was very personal. It was very real," Portnoy says. 

"I don't have necessarily any hard feelings for him. It's just, if you're going to insult our entire fanbase and people who like Barstool, it doesn't make much sense necessarily for these same people to be paying your bills and supporting your podcast ... it just makes no sense."

Floyd Mayweather On MMA Future: 'I Don't Know'

2/19/2018 7:16 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Moment of honesty from Floyd Mayweather?

The leader of The Money Team was leaving the NBA All-Star Game in L.A. surrounded by TMT crew when we asked about Conor McGregor's new statement ... that Floyd has ended MMA fight negotiations. 

Floyd told us straight-up, "I don't know" -- weird considering he's been on a P.R. offensive to drive up interest in a potential Conor vs. Floyd UFC fight. Remember the MMA cage videos he's made?

Plus, Floyd's father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., recently said he believes Floyd will take an MMA fight.

We tried to ask Floyd more questions ... but he sicced his security team on us. 

John Wall I'm Great with Gortat!!!

2/17/2018 12:53 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

John Wall's not mincing words about his relationship with his Wizards teammate, Marcin Gortat ... he straight up tells us everything's cool!

We got the injured NBA star leaving Mastro's in Bev Hills Friday night -- he's in town for All-Star Weekend festivities -- and asked if there's any ongoing beef between him and the Wizards center ... he shoots it down right away.

Here's the backstory -- Gortat tweeted about a great "team" victory after Washington won its first few games without Wall, which many considered a shot at the star. Wall responded by saying he gives Gortat "the most spoon-fed baskets ever."

The 2 reportedly had a meeting to hash out their issues last week ... and it seems like it worked.

Wall's recovering from a knee injury, and the team's hopeful he'll be back in time for a playoff push.

Shaun White Slammed by Accuser ... My Case Isn't Gossip!!!

2/14/2018 6:43 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Shaun White's sexual harassment accuser -- his former bandmate Lena Zawaideh -- is furious he referred to the case as "gossip" ... and she's carefully unloading on him, through her attorney, in a way to avoid violating the terms of her settlement.

"Yesterday, Shaun White used the word 'gossip' to refer to the past sexual harassment lawsuit by his former drummer ... our client," says Lena's lawyer, Lawrance Bohm.

He continues ... "There are powerful legal forces at play which prevent Ms. Zawaideh from speaking about the allegations and ultimate outcome of the sexual harassment case."

"Before Mr. White made his comments, [Lena] believed that this matter was in the past and she was happy to put the situation behind her ... Unfortunately, by his recent comments and conduct, Mr. White has minimized the problem of sexual harassment in this country."

"Mr. White's comments, on the world stage, directly impugn the character of Ms. Zawaideh. No woman wants to be called a 'gossip' or a liar by the harasser. Minimizing sexual harassment maximizes the harm to Ms. Zawaideh."

He concludes ... "Hopefully, before our country declares someone 'the best of the U.S.' there will be investigation and due diligence."

As we reported ... White apologized on the "Today" show Wednesday for dismissing his sexual harassment case as "gossip" when an ABC reporter asked him about the allegations possibly tarnishing his legacy. The question came up at the media conference following Shaun's gold medal run on the men's half-pipe Tuesday.

We broke the story ... White was sued by Zawaideh in August 2016 for allegedly sexually harassing her for years, and had text messages to back it up. She claimed during her 7-year run with the band, White would text her penis pics, sex videos involving fecal matter and demanded she change her hairstyle.

White denied the allegations, but ultimately settled the case with Lena in May 2017.

Spencer Pratt LC's Preventing a 'Hills' Reunion ... 'Bless Her Angel Heart'

2/13/2018 9:24 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Spencer Pratt says he wants his "Jersey Shore" moment with his co-stars from "The Hills" -- there's just one problem ... Lauren Conrad, according to him.

We got Spencer Monday night in Times Square again and he told us he wants to be like Pauly D and co. and revel in his reality TV glory days with his old 'Hills' squad. He says LC is the only holdout, and it sounds like there's some unfinished biz between her and Spence.

Spencer even laid out some terms he'd be willing to agree to if Lauren would just come out and shoot for half a day.

Oh, and he's got a shout-out to Kristin Cavallari on her new reality show. It's not all bad blood.

Chris Noth I'll Take the 'Big' Road, Thank You ... In SJP, Kim Cattrall Fight

2/13/2018 7:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker might want to follow their old co-star Chris Noth's lead when it comes to the next step in their bitter feud.

We got Chris -- who played SJP's "Sex and the City" BF -- Monday night in NYC and asked how his character, Mr. Big, would squash the beef between the ladies. His response, we think, is spot-on. 

Kim Cattrall went nuclear over the weekend, saying Sarah was painting her as the villain for not wanting to do a third 'SATC' flick ... and claimed SJP was desperate to improve her "nice girl" image.

Let's be honest ... stepping into the middle of this fray would be a no-win sitch for any guy. Even Mr. Big, which explains why he took this approach to our question.

Kim Cattrall Attacks Sarah Jessica Parker 'You Are Not My Friend'

2/10/2018 8:00 AM PST

One thing in this crazy world is clear ... Kim Cattrall hates Sarah Jessica Parker's guts.

Kim just went on the attack against her "Sex and the City" co-star ... this after Parker went on social media and TV to offer condolences to her after the death of Kim's brother.  

Kim just posted this, "stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your 'nice girl' persona."

She went on ... "My Mom asked me today 'When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone? Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear (If I haven't already) You are not my family. You are not my friend."

It's pretty clear how much Kim dislikes Parker and it clearly irks her that Parker offered condolences for all the public to see, despite the bad blood.

Kim recently slammed the door shut on another "Sex and the City." Clearly ... it was not a very happy set back in the day.

Paris Hilton Stop Calling US Female DJs ... It's Just DJ

2/9/2018 7:01 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton thinks Steve Aoki is all wrong when he rails that there are no female DJs.

We got the DJ/entrepreneur and fiance Chris Zylka Thursday at LAX and asked about Aoki's gripe that there's no gender equality in the EDM world, but Paris quickly schooled us on some of the best female DJs in the game.

We crossed out the word female because Paris thinks it makes no difference whether a dude or a chick spins tunes. But on Aoki's broader point -- that there are no female DJs -- Paris ticks off a bunch.

Omarosa's diss on President Trump's White House didn't go unnoticed -- because 45's Deputy Press Secretary confirmed she was, in fact, fired from her job.

Raj Shah was fielding questions in place of Sarah Huckabee Sanders Thursday and got asked about Omarosa besmirching the rep of the White House on "Celebrity Big Brother" the night before.

His response ... the White House doesn't take her comments very seriously. He also deaded the much-debated topic of her departure a couple months ago ... she was fired, according to him.

Shah elaborated with this ... Omarosa had been fired from "The Apprentice" 3 times prior ... and that "this would make the 4th time we let her go."

He also said Omarosa had very limited contact with the Prez while on the job, and has zero contact with him now.

Taylor Swift Bad Blood with Karlie? Ask Katy Perry!!!

2/8/2018 9:14 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss aren't just a little on the outs ... it's looking like that bridge is TOTALLY burned, and Karlie's standing with Katy Perry waving from the other side.

Paps got Karlie with Katy and NYT bestselling author Derek Blasberg grabbing sushi in L.A. Wednesday night. The key thing here, of course, is Karlie and Katy hanging together.

Here's why it matters -- Karlie and former BFF Taylor haven't hung out in a minute ... not since their "Bad Blood" squad days back in 2015. And everyone knows Taylor and Katy's rocky relationship.

Adding fuel to the fire, Karlie appeared to shade T-Swift earlier this year with her LOVE Advent calendar shoot, which she posted with the caption, "Swish swish" -- a clear nod to Katy's diss track about Taylor. 

The night out with Katy convinces us ... Karlie and Tay are never, ever getting back together.
