'L&HH' Star Tammy Rivera More Pub for Safaree, But He Shoulda Swung at Meek's Goons!

6/25/2017 6:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Safaree Samuels shoulda stood his ground against Meek Mill's good squad when they tried jumping him ... according to a fellow "Love & Hip Hop" costar. 

We got Tammy Rivera -- Waka Flaka's lady from 'L&HH: Atlanta' -- as she was heading to the Microsoft Theater in L.A. for the BET Awards ... and she opened up about Safaree getting jumping this weekend

She says the fight will probably work out in Safaree's favor -- as they say, there's no such thing as bad publicity.

As far as how he handled the hands ... welp, Tammy's got some thoughts on that too.

Meek Mill Safaree Who? 'I Don't Even Fight'

6/25/2017 10:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill's happy to play the "who" game when it comes to questions about Safaree Samuels ... and he probably ain't squaring up with him anytime soon either.

Paps got Meek Saturday night leaving the District in Bev Hills -- rolling SUPER deep with bodyguards -- where he ducked and dodged questions about Safaree claiming Meek ordered his crew to jump him on Friday.

It's like a Dr. Seuss book here at first, but then Meek gets into Safaree's request for a 1-on-1 fight straight up. As he puts it, he's a "Don" ... and Dons don't fight. Okay, bud. 

DJ Self Denies He Set Safaree Up To Get a Meek MIll Beatdown

6/25/2017 7:09 AM PDT

DJ Self is denying the buzz that he set Safaree Samuels up when Safaree was attacked Friday by Meek Mill's crew.

DJ now says he's speaking out to protect his rep, saying, "I rock with both of them and do not like to get in between people's beef."  He goes on, "If I do, I like to squash it as opposed to provide it."

He also says ambushing Safaree was impossible because he didn't know either Safaree or Meek would be there ... "No way no how I could ever line somebody up or set somebody up."

He says he was actually trying to "mediate" the situation, and claims that's clear from the video.

'All Eyez On Me' Singleton's Early Script With Tupac Prison Rape Scene

6/25/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"All Eyez On Me" filmmakers and famed director John Singleton are beefing over the version of the movie Singleton wanted to make -- and now we have the script at the center of the feud.  

TMZ obtained several pages from a 2014 draft written by Singleton, and it includes a scene where prison guards lock Tupac in the library, and turn the other way while other inmates assault him. When you read it ... there's a clear insinuation Tupac gets raped.

'Eyez' producer L.T. Hutton referred to this scene while he was on "The Breakfast Club," but fans were hesitant to believe it. For his part, Singleton has trashed 'Eyez,' and refused to see it because he "knows they f**ked it up."

The script, labeled "REVISION EIGHT," also has a scene where Tupac watches his mother, Afeni, having "adult fun" with a man and another woman.

We contacted the film's producers, Morgan Creek, to authenticate the script. Marketing EVP Greg Mielcarz told us it's "one of several versions penned by Mr Singleton while he was working with Morgan Creek.”

Sources connected to Singleton tell us the script was an early draft, but everything he wrote was approved by Tupac's mother. Singleton's said in the past he felt Morgan Creek disrespected Afeni, and that's why he dropped out of the project.

The Game Meek and Safaree Should Fight ... But I'm Staying Out of It

EXCLUSIVE

The Game says he's not getting involved in the beef between Nicki Minaj's exes, Meek Mill and Safaree Samuels ... but he's got no problem encouraging them to slug it out.

Game was leaving BET's Celebrity Basketball Game Saturday when we asked him about Safaree getting jumped -- allegedly by Meek's crew -- and he offered a "fair" way for them to solve their differences.

It's pretty straight forward -- and he thinks the 2 grown men can figure it out on their own.

Wonder who he's got in the fight?

EXCLUSIVE

Safaree Samuels and Meek Mill had an explosive run-in Friday at a BET party when Meek's crew jumped and attacked Safaree, who now wants a violent showdown with Meek.

The 2 ex-BF's of Nicki Minaj showed up at DJ Khaled's pre-BET party at Penthouse in WeHo. It looks like Safaree arrived just before Meek, and just as Meek was getting out of the SUV, 2 guys who we're told were part of Meek's crew opened a can of whup-ass.

Safaree didn't mince words afterwords ... challenging Meek to a fight and a whole lot more.

Hillary Clinton jumped off the political sidelines and fired a shot at Republicans over the new healthcare bill ... saying, in not so many words, it's gonna kill Americans.

The former candidate said the GOP will be "the death party" if they pass the proposed healthcare measure. In her tweet, she referenced an article citing Harvard researchers. Their study says the Senate bill could result in "18,000 to 28,000 deaths in 2026."

Dr. Luke Settles With Kesha's Mom Drops Defamation Suit

6/23/2017 1:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

Dr. Luke's nearly 3 year saga in a defamation lawsuit against Kesha's mom is finally over -- the suit's been dropped and they've reached a settlement.

TMZ broke the story ... the music producer claimed in a 2014 lawsuit that Pebe Sebert orchestrated a smear campaign of sexual lies against him. He also claimed Pebe wanted Kesha to break her contract with him, and when she couldn't, Pebe got Kesha to spread lies that he raped her.

But the parties have now agreed to dismiss the case with prejudice -- meaning it can't be refiled. Translation: They settled it, and one thing Luke got was a statement from Pebe regarding his sexual assault case with Kesha.

According to the statement ... "Pebe admits she has no firsthand knowledge of the events occurring on the night of the alleged rape. Pebe was not present that night. At that time, Pebe was in Nashville, and Kesha was in Los Angeles. The dispute between Kesha and Dr. Luke about the events of that night is the subject of the New York case, and will be decided in that case."

As we reported ... Pebe countersued Dr. Luke claiming he tormented and abused her by allegedly date raping her daughter. That case was dropped in April 2016.

Keshia Knight Pulliam Cosby Trip Didn't Break Custody Deal ... Here's Proof Ed's Lying!

6/21/2017 1:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Keshia Knight Pulliam says her trip to accompany Bill Cosby at his trial was totally on the up and up -- and she has emails to prove her ex knew it ... despite his claim she broke their custody deal.

Keshia filed docs calling BS on Ed Hartwell, who accused her of bailing on his supervised visit with their daughter ... so she could be with Cosby in Philly. She says the fact is ... NO visit was scheduled.

According to the docs ... Ed never reserved the site where the supervised visits happen. He's required to do so 1 week ahead of time, and when Ed didn't reserve it for June 6 ... Keshia made other plans. She added, Ed knew full well she was going to Philly and had no objections.

Keshia also attached a June 4 email sent to Ed, reminding him there'd be no visitation because he didn't reserve the site.

We broke the story ... Ed filed docs claiming Keshia violated their child custody agreement to be with Cosby on day 1 of his trial.

EXCLUSIVE

Chanel West Coast's beef with Charlamagne Tha God is all water under the bridge, or will be ... right after she gets in one last shot at him.

We got Chanel Tuesday at Pink Taco on Sunset, and asked about her blow-up with Charlamagne on MTV's "Ridiculousness." She went off when he called her a "wack rapper" ... but now says the spat was beneficial for both of them.

She got a ton more followers and exposure, and he got a future guest for his show. Maybe.

Not sure he'll call Chanel after this last dig. Your move, CTG!

Boxer Mikey Garcia To Adrien Broner: Floyd Can't Save You!

6/21/2017 7:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Boxing star Mikey Garcia says he's gonna kick Adrien Broner's ass ... and there's nothing his BFF, Floyd Mayweather, can do about it. 

Broner and Mayweather are as thick as thieves -- Broner not only refers to him as his "Big Bro" but they they've trained and lived together. Floyd's like his mentor. 

Garcia and Broner are set to face off on July 29 -- and while Mikey says he LOVES the Floyd connection because it helps with promotion, TBE is helpless to save AB from the punishment he's about to receive. 

Broner has other plans ... telling TMZ Sports he expects to get through the fight unscathed so he can take on Nate Diaz on the Mayweather, McGregor undercard less than a month later. 

Good luck with that ...

'Duck Dynasty' Co-Creators Judge Says ... Let Them Back into the Empire, Or Else

6/19/2017 12:29 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The co-creators of "Duck Dynasty" are about to get back in business ... and if their business partners dare try to squeeze them out they will have hell to pay.

Scott and Deirdre Gurney, the co-creators of the once wildly popular show, were thrown out of the business by ITV, the British network that co-owned the show.

A judge ruled back in March that ITV had no right to 86 the Gurneys and ordered the network to let them back in. That apparently didn't happen.

Friday, a judge just laid down the law in terms that could not be more clear ... if ITV doesn't let the Gurneys back in, they will be socked with a $12k fine.

The order requires ITV to allow Scott and Deirdre access to company emails, the right to hire/fire staff and access to at least $500k to spend on development.

ITV and the Gurneys are in the midst of a feud stemming from the Gurneys suing ITV for $100 million claiming they were wrongfully terminated. ITV countered that the Gurneys were engaged in fraud.

The Gurneys deny any wrongdoing and claim they were intimidated and extorted.
