Ex-'Mob Wives' Star Drita D'Avanzo Don't Come Near Me, Farrah Slap Threat Still Stands, Jail or Not!

7/1/2018 2:09 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drita D'Avanzo threatened to slap Farrah Abraham in the face if she comes across her in person again -- and now she's doubling down on that promise ... saying it's very real.

We spoke to the former "Mob Wives" reality star about her beef this weekend with the ex-"Teen Mom" OG after Farrah called her a "has been" and unprofessional following an event they co-hosted together in Atlantic City. Farrah even cropped a clown face over Drita on IG.

Drita responded to the hate on social media, saying she'd be happy to deliver an open-palm whack to Farrah's noggin if she came within arm's length. She now tells us she's serious about that hypothetical, and it sounds like she's willing to do jail time to send a message.

Meanwhile, Farrah has already threatened legal action -- and she's reportedly gunning to file a restraining order soon through her lawyers.

It's possible she might need it against Drita -- this lady ain't playing around. That ... or just offer a simple apology. Apparently, that'd square things away in Jersey.

Drake Finally Fesses Up To Being A Dad ... On New Album

6/29/2018 6:25 AM PDT

Drake has finally come clean -- admitting he's fathered a son -- even rapping about the paternity test he took to know it was for certain.

Drizzy released his album, "Scorpion," Friday and, as expected, it's full of glimpses into the rapper's personal life. His song "Emotionless" is the first to acknowledge his secret son Pusha T exposed in a diss track last month.

"I wasn't hiding my kid from the world. I was hiding the world from my kid."

The rapper reveals he's taken a paternity test for the kid too, leaving no doubts in the song "March 14."

"Yesterday mornin' was crazy. I had to come to terms with the fact that it's not a maybe. That sh*t is in stone. Sealed and signed. She's not my lover like Billie Jean. But the kid is mine. Sadie used to tell me all it takes is one time. And all it took was one time. S**t, we only met two times."

The album also features a previously unreleased track with Michael Jackson

TMZ broke the story ... Drake's been financially supporting baby mama Sophie Brussaux since the birth of their son last year. Sources close to the rapper told us last month Drake was planning to take a paternity test to figure out any future legalities.

So, that settles that. 

Ashanti On Hanging With Nelly's Dad ... I'm All About Love

6/28/2018 2:49 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ashanti didn't know her ex-bf, Nelly, had cut ties with his dad after she shared a video of herself hanging backstage with him, but she's hoping father and son will reconcile. 

We got Ashanti Thursday at LAX and asked her if she thought her hang with Nelly's dad is what made the rapper publicly eviscerate his pops. She seemed shocked when we told her about the fallout from her video. 

Ashanti told us she hopes the rift isn't because of her, but it seems pretty clear, based on the timing ... it is. 

She and Nelly dated for a decade, but broke up more than 3 years ago ... so you'd think they would've moved on by now.

Ashanti brushed off the controversy by explaining her intentions, and also gave us some 411 on her joint LP with Ja Rule ... which sounds like it's going to be huge.

Justin Bieber Skipped Depo to Hang with Hailey ... Claims Egging Neighbor

6/28/2018 10:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

3:01 PM PT -- Bieber's legal team claims the singer provided alternative dates to sit down for a depo, but Schwartz's attorneys rushed to file warrant docs before trying to work something out. They also claim Bieber hasn't been personally served the lawsuit.Justin Bieber skipped a scheduled grilling from lawyers, and decided to make out with Hailey Baldwin instead ... according to his ex-neighbor who now wants Justin arrested.

The Biebs was ordered by a judge to attend a deposition, which was scheduled for June 22, in his infamous and STILL ongoing egging case with former Calabasas neighbor, Jeffrey Schwartz.

Problem is, JB didn't show up. According to new legal docs, Schwartz believes it was because he was in NYC packing on the PDA with Hailey. So now, Schwartz wants the judge to issue a bench warrant for Bieber and fine him $1,000 bucks a day for each day he refuses to sit for the depo.

Schwartz also accuses Bieber of engaging in "obfuscation and delay tactics" and points out he's already skipped out on 5 scheduled depos in the past 2 years. The judge has yet to rule on the warrant.

We broke the story ... Schwartz -- who's being repped by John Carpenter and Brian Kim -- wants big bucks from Bieber from all the emotional distress he and his wife suffered from the 2014 egging and the aftermath.

Justin was charged criminally in the case, and already paid $80k in restitution. 

Damon Dash Lee Daniels Won't Pay Me 'Cause He's a Culture Vulture!!!

6/27/2018 1:10 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Damon Dash says Lee Daniels had no problem asking him for money and exploiting his goodwill, but he has a major problem keeping his word to pay it back ... and Dame's sick of it.

The Roc-A-Fella mogul told us Wednesday on "TMZ Live" ... Daniels ended up millions in the hole to him after making 2 movies -- 2004's "The Woodsman" and 2005's "Shadowboxer."

According to Dame ... Daniels promised him he'd get his money back no matter what, but then blew him off -- which is why Dash started suing Daniels in 2014. As we reported, they struck a settlement deal, but Damon tells us Lee's sticking to his "culture vulture" ways ... and still hasn't squared up.

Before he filed a new suit, Damon confronted Lee at a Diana Ross concert about getting stiffed ... and Daniels appeared to be contrite. Apparently, not enough to please Damon and keep their issue out of court.

Dash is suing Daniels -- again -- this time for $5 million.

Jill Scott's Ex Gimme Back My 'Purple Rain!!!' And My Shoe Horn, Too

6/25/2018 7:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jill Scott's refusing to fork over a copy of Prince's "Purple Rain" -- and a bunch of other crap -- according to her estranged husband.

Michael Dobson filed docs in his divorce case with Jill ... asking the judge to punish her and make her hand over his Prince album along with a bunch of other personal items.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Michael says he's been pestering her to get his belongings from their house, but can't because she changed the locks back in September 2017. He says she's also got a grip on 5 hotel robes, a massage table, a Dewalt laser level and worst of all ... an extended shoehorn!

We knew the split was nasty -- as we first reported, she requested a restraining order in February, claiming Michael had been trashing her since she filed for divorce -- but now it's shoehorn-nasty.

That's next level.

Breaking News

Imagine going to the grocery store and running into a dude wearing a shirt that says he wants to KILL YOUR FAMILY!

That's what happened to Kendall Jenner on Wednesday ... but, there's one twist -- the guy with the grudge happens to have a body that SLAAAAYS. 

Kendall says she was going out to get some milk when she ran into a super jacked dude sporting a "Kill The Kardashians" shirt at the market.  

So, Kendall did what anyone in her situation would do ... she posted the video on IG. 

No word on who the dude is ... but, good lord. #ArmsArmsArms

By the way, it's not the first time we've seen this shirt out in the wild -- remember Slayer guitarist Gary Holt wore it onstage during a concert back in 2015 ... after Kendall was spotted out in a Slayer shirt.

EXCLUSIVE

Anyone waiting for Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball to get into a full-blown beef is about to be disappointed ... because Lakers guard Josh Hart says everything is cool between the two guys.

Lonzo and Kuzma have been taking shots at each other on social media (and on rap songs) so much that the Lakers brass reportedly stepped in and asked them to stop.

So, we got Hart out at The Peppermint Club in L.A. (where he was partying with his teammate, Julius Randle) and asked him if it's getting outta hand ... and he broke it down for us.

Chill guys ... don't scare Kawhi away.

6/20/2018 10:39 AM PDT
Breaking News

Houston Rockets fans are still so bitter at being knocked out of the playoffs by the Warriors, they've gone to Yelp to take out their frustrations on Ayesha Curry's new Houston restaurant. 

Steph Curry's wife is opening International Smoke in Houston in July -- and a bunch of haters have already bombarded the page with anti-Warriors trash talk, as first pointed out by NBA reporter Tomer Azarly.

Some of the highlights ... 

-- "Steph is overrated. Klay sucks" 

-- "This is absolutely the worst place to go - her husband cheated his way to a championship and now she has the guts to open up a place here??"

-- "Waited 35 mins for water and it tasted like Seth curry tears ! Will never be back ! Can't support this place .. Harden MVP"

-- "Any real rockets fans will NEVER step foot into this place. Disgusting."

-- "Can't believe I logged on here and took time out of my day just to give this 1 star. Go rockets."

As you can imagine, the comments have already been flagged by Yelp -- which is now reviewing the page to take out the fake critics.

Funny as hell though. 

Tim Kaine The Truth About Trump is He Wants to Block All Immigration

6/20/2018 10:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tim Kaine says President Trump is full of it and, despite what he says ... his true mission is to stop all immigration in the U.S. -- not just people coming here illegally.

We got the Virginia Senator at Capitol Hill in D.C. Wednesday and, after completely dismissing what Ann Coulter claims about kids in detention camps ... he put the Prez on blast for rejecting a bipartisan deal in February that would have helped Dreamers and provided $25 BILLION in border security.

Kaine says the real deal with Trump is ... he's obsessed with making life miserable for all immigrants -- legal and illegal -- and punishing kids, and his demand for more border security is just a guise.

For a guy who Trump recently referred to as "a total stiff" ... Kaine just went in hard on him. But, for what it's worth, Trump says he's about to sign an executive order to keep families at the border together. 

President Trump Greeted with a Loud 'F*** You!!' From Congressional Intern

6/20/2018 6:40 AM PDT

President Trump got an earful in Congress -- not from an elected official -- but from an intern who yelled "F**k you!"

The moment was captured on video Tuesday evening as POTUS walked through the Capitol Rotunda of the Congressional building -- he was there for a meeting with Republican lawmakers.

As his entourage started walking through ... a female voice was heard firing off the 4-letter salute to the Commander in Chief. Multiple witnesses said she was wearing a Congressional intern badge.

The Prez, was not on camera at the time -- he walked through a few seconds later, seemingly unfazed -- but with total silence in the building, the F-U echoed in the chamber.

Ya know Trump heard it.

Tommy Lee Takes Ugly Shot at Son ... I Dropped $130k on Your Rehab!!!

6/19/2018 6:59 AM PDT

9:32 PM PT -- Brandon just responded to his dad's post ... "I thank my Dad for paying for my treatment. It's the best thing he has ever done for me. Today I am almost two years sober. Every day that goes by I feel ever more grateful. My clear mind has allowed me to do a lot with this time. So much so that I would like to offer to pay for his treatment."

Tommy Lee is taking the most disgusting shot yet in the war with his son, Brandon Lee -- bitching about all the money he's spent on raising him ... including the tab for rehab.

The Motley Crue drummer says he spent $130k to get Brandon treatment, another $40k on his 21st birthday ... and $10k on his own medical bills after Brandon knocked him out earlier this year. Tommy's finishing touch -- "Son acting like a victim on social media on father's day: Priceless."

Dad's clearly still fuming over the fact Brandon posted video on Father's Day showing Tommy out cold after their fight back in March -- but Dad's tweet takes it to a really ugly level.

Brandon's never gone public with any substance abuse issues, so IF it's true ... his own father just outed him. Not to mention the whole people in glass houses thing -- Tommy's battled addiction in the past, and even gone to rehab himself.

He might have locked up Dad of the Year, though, with the last braggadocious line of his angry tweet. Mic drop? Nice touch.

Paris Hilton Lindsay Who? She's NOT on My Guest List

6/19/2018 6:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton made it clear ... she can't stand Lindsay Lohan, and her former friend is persona non grata at Paris' upcoming wedding.

We got Paris Monday at LAX, and she made it clear ... certain feuds are dead and buried while others are very much alive and well. She had nothing but praise for Kim Kardashian, who Paris calls a miracle worker for getting Alice Johnson sprung from prison.

Paris claims she has a life compass which draws her to people who enrich her life and keeps her from those who live in darkness ... it's abundantly clear where Lindsay fits in.

As for Lindsay ... well, remember the famous TMZ clip with Paris and Brandon Davis. The sentiment remains the same 12 years later.
