Keshia Knight Pulliam Ed's Trying To Kill Our Unborn Baby

8/13/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0811-keshia-knight-pulliam-ed-hartwell-tmz-gettyKeshia Knight Pulliam says her estranged husband, Ed Hartwell, is so abusive, so violent, so diabolical ... he has plotted to kill their unborn child.

Keshia claims in divorce docs Ed "has been plotting to harm and obstruct [her] pregnancy" by engaging in "certain underhanded and unusual conduct" that would trigger a miscarriage.   

Keshia, who is 5 months along, is not specific as to Ed's conduct, but she says he's engaged in "cruel treatment" which has adversely affected her pregnancy. 

Keshia says in legal docs ... during their short marriage, Ed was constantly cursing, yelling and demeaning her. She says he also had affairs with multiple women, including a former baby mama. 

And Keshia says she and Ed have multiple firearms ... she feels unsafe and wants an order forcing him to turn all the guns over to her. She's also asking the judge to order him to stay clear of her.

She wants the judge to order a mental evaluation.

Hope Solo Trashes Sweden After Loss ... 'Bunch of Cowards'

8/12/2016 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0812-hope-solo-gettyHope Solo just went off on the Swedish soccer team ... reportedly calling them "a bunch of cowards" after Team USA lost in a penalty shootout. 

An obviously pissed off Solo spoke with reporters directly after the game ... and said, "I’m very proud of this team. But I also think we played a bunch of cowards."

"The best team did not win today. I strongly believe that. I think you saw American heart. You saw us give everything we had today," reports SI.com's Grant Wahl. 

When asked why she called Sweden "cowards" -- Solo explained said she wasn't impressed with their style of play ... especially the lack of passing. 

"They dropped into a 50. They didn’t try and press. They didn’t want to open the game. And they tried to counter with longballs. We had that style of play when Pia was our coach. I don’t think they’re going to make it far in the tournament. I think it was very cowardly. But they won. They’re moving on, and we’re going home."

Stay classy, Hope. 

Amber Heard No-Show for Depo In Johnny Depp Case

8/12/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0811-amber-heard-tmzWhat do Amber Heard and Tyga have in common? They both violated court orders to testify under oath in L.A. and both are outside the borders of the USofA.

Sources tell us ... Amber is still ensconced in London, even though she's been ordered to appear for her deposition in her domestic violence/divorce case Friday at 10 AM.

The consequences could be severe. Johnny Depp's lawyers have already asked the judge to prohibit her from testifying in next week's trial because she refused to go in the depo room last weekend and testify. Depp's lawyer, Laura Wasser, says Amber was crying and screaming in an adjoining room, refusing to sit and testify. The judge could also just dismiss the domestic violence case.

Heard faces some tough questions ... among them -- why she thinks cops and apartment staff never saw injuries to her face.

We know both sides have been trying to settle the case, but money is the sticking point.

Tyrese Sorry, Rock ... I'm Team Vin Diesel

8/11/2016 2:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0811-tyrese-vin-instagram-01Vin Diesel just scored an incredibly powerful ally in his war with The Rock ... Tyrese

Vin's "Fast 8" co-star just made it clear ... it's Vin who is the driving force behind the franchise, and people like Rock need to respect that.

Tyrese posted a pic with the caption, "I've always said that if ONLY people knew how hard you work to protect this franchise and characters, minds would be blown," adding, "I'm so f****** proud to call you my family and my brother."

And then the hammer ... "if no one else will jump out there and stand up I will."

Vin also got vague support from fellow 'Furious' co-star Ludacris, who just posted a pic of the cast ... sans Rock.

War still raging.

Vin Diesel vs. The Rock Crew Says One's a Nice Guy ... One's Not

8/11/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0810-vin-diesel-the-rock-tmz-01The crew has chosen sides in the "Fast 8" feud between The Rock and Vin Diesel ... and Rock wins, hands down.

Production sources tell TMZ, The Rock has been upset with Vin's work ethic for a long time, and he's not alone. Members of the crew tell us Vin was often 30 minutes to an hour late to shoot scenes ... and it wasn't because he was late to the set -- he was simply in his trailer and wouldn't come out.

We're told Vin didn't like Monday 7 AM calls so production was forced to make the start time 10 AM to accommodate him.

And the crew felt Vin's arrogance was out of control, especially because he had a producer title. We're told he wouldn't listen to anyone and would goad people, including The Rock, by criticizing their acting.

The crew has a vastly different view of The Rock. They say he's the ultimate professional who is always on time and always nails his scenes. They also say he's easy to work with.

As we reported, Vin and Rock have been clashing for a long time and it came to a head Monday when Rock exploded on social media, calling out a male co-star (it's Vin) for being unprofessional.

And as we told you, Vin confronted Rock Tuesday in Rock's trailer, but their issues remain unresolved.

Vin Diesel 'I Will Tell You Everything'

8/11/2016 6:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vin Diesel has secrets he's now going to share ... about what appears to be an excruciating experience riddled with conflict ... but so far, nothing.

Vin posted this video, in which he obliquely refers to his war with "Fast 8" co-star The Rock.

Vin captioned the video, "So much has gone in this year. I can't believe I wrapped two back to back pictures I both starred in and produced. Now I get to return to my family, my life ... To me."

Interesting he says "starred and produced." The producing part, we're told, is part of the conflict he had with The Rock. 

'LHHA' Stevie J Hey Judge ... Joseline's a Lying Liar who Lies

8/11/2016 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Stevie J says Joseline Hernandez's life is all a lie -- right down to her age -- but the fibs weren't enough to convince a judge to issue a restraining order against her.

Stevie came out firing with juicy details about his "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" ex ... hoping they'd persuade a judge to extend a restraining order he got last month.

In his docs Stevie points out Joseline's real name is Shenellica Juneann Bettencourt ... she's 39 years old (not 29) ... isn't even from Puerto Rico ... might STILL be married to someone else ... and the baby in her belly probably isn't his.

The "newly discovered facts" fell flat ... because none of it had anything to do with the price of beans, or in this case granting a restraining order.

Mel Gibson Baby Mama Oksana Grigorieva Loose Lips Cost Her a Bundle

8/11/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0810-mel-gibson-oksana-tmzMel Gibson's baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva, just got word from a California appeals court ... she made one of the worst business decisions in the history of business ... because they just ruled she's only entitled to 1/60 of what she could have gotten from him had she just shut her trap.

The California Court of Appeals just dropped the hammer, saying Oksana screwed herself when she went on Howard Stern in 2013 and claimed domestic abuse at the hands of Gibson. The actor was on the hook for $750,000 -- a settlement he had struck with her -- but had only shelled out $250,000.

The agreement said she would forfeit the balance if she blabbed about her allegations, and the court said that's exactly what she did when she went on Stern. So, Mel does not have to pay the $500k balance.

Mind you ... Mel had agreed to pay Oksana $15 million if she kept those horrible audiotapes secret, but she changed her mind thinking she could get even more and disavowed the deal. Instead of $15 mil, she eventually struck a deal for $750k ... and that has now been whittled down to $250k.

Maybe she's just bad at math. 

UFC's Julianna Pena No One Cares About Ronda Anymore ... Or Her Fat Arms!

8/11/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Julianna Pena just RIPPED into Ronda Rousey -- saying, "No one cares about [her] and her fat arms anymore."

"She's like the emperor in no clothes," Pena added ... "She's broken a little bit."

So, what set Pena off?

We asked her about Amanda Nunes saying she would gladly fight her ... if she couldn't book Ronda. And while Pena says she understands from a business perspective, she thinks Ronda's days as the top dog in UFC are over.

As for Ronda's long-awaited return, Pena says she's heard rumblings that RR will fight again before the end of the year ... but adds, "I'll believe it when I see it."

Until then, Pena says it's only a matter of time until she crushes Nunes and takes the belt.

"They can delay me but they can't deny me."

Scottie Pippen's Wife Christian Laettner Stiffed Us Bad 'How Do You Sleep At Night?'

8/10/2016 4:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0810_scottie_Larsa-Pippen_Christian-Laettner_getty_twitter_2Scottie Pippen and his wife are FURIOUS at Christian Laettner -- claiming he still hasn't paid them back the hundreds of thousands of dollars he owes them ... and they want to collect, NOW. 

Around 2007, Pippen invested a ton of money with Laettner and his partners to buy a stake in the Memphis Grizzlies ... but when the deal fizzled, he never got his money back.

Pippen sued Laettner and his partners and was awarded a $2.5 million judgment -- but has NOT received the full amount.

Enter Larsa Pippen ... who took the beef public this week -- tweeting at Laettner, "Hey @laettnerbball are you ever gonna pay us back homie?"

"It's crazy you've been f***ing us around forever @laettnerbball. Homie how do u sleep at night."

Sources connected to the case tell us Laettner still owes at least $600,000 to the Pippens. 

Yeah, we'd be pissed too.

The Rock I'll Show You Who's Boss on 'Fast & Furious'

8/10/2016 3:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Rock just posted a video showing him as the undisputed king of the set on "Fast 8" ... with Vin Diesel nowhere in sight.

The video was shot as production is coming to a close, and it's not coincidental it was filmed hours after Vin Diesel told everyone "Daddy's gone" and left '8' in the dust.  

Rock also posted this ... "And like with any team -- that's a family -- there's gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it."

As we reported, there was no "great resolution" after Vin confronted Rock Tuesday in Rock's trailer.

Vin Diesel Sayonara, 'Fast 8' Beef with Rock Rolls On

8/10/2016 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0810-vin-diesel-tmz-02Vin Diesel got the hell out of Dodge ... minutes after wrapping his final scene in "Fast 8" ... and we've learned his feud with The Rock is NOT resolved.

Production sources tell TMZ ... Vin finished filming his scenes, with The Rock, no less, at 1 AM Wednesday and almost as soon as the director called cut Vin gathered everyone and said he was leaving. During his speech he said, "Daddy's gone" ... Vin thinks of himself as the father figure on set.

Our sources say earlier in the day, Vin confronted Rock over the disparaging comments he made about his male co-stars. Although Rock didn't name names, we know he was referring to Vin.

We're told Vin went to Rock's trailer and demanded to know why he was talking trash. The 2 spoke privately inside but we're told they did not squash their beef. One source intimately familiar with the actors tells us it's all about big egos.

As for Vin, he didn't leave anyone high and dry. We're told after shooting his last scene the studio cleared him to leave.

As for The Rock ... he shoots his last scene Thursday. The movie is a week away from being fully wrapped.

'LHHA' Joseline Hernandez My Co-Star Tried Running Me Over ... Keep Her Away!!!

8/10/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0809-joseline-hernandez-tommie-lee-tmz-instagramJoseline Hernandez claims her new "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" co-star, Tommie Lee, tried running her down with her car and threatened to kill her, and a judge must have believed her ... because Tommie's now been ordered to stay more than a football field away from her.

The way we hear the story ... Tommie Lee tried mowing Joseline down not once, but three times, while she was walking to an ATL store. We're told Tommie Lee got out of the car and threatened to shoot Joseline in the face, but alternatively would get some goons to do her in.

They fight on the show, but running people over is a whole other thing, so a judge has now ordered Tommie Lee to stay 500 yards away.

As for how they'll co-exist on the show ... it just wrapped for the season, so there's a good cool-down period.
