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!

R&B Singer Keke Wyatt My Husband's Leaving Me While I'm 8 Mos. Pregnant!!

9/5/2017 9:52 AM PDT

R&B singer Keke Wyatt was drowning in her tears as she revealed her husband's plans to drop her while 8 months pregnant ... after he allegedly cheated.

Keke, who once starred on "R&B Divas: Atlanta," posted her meltdown Tuesday. She and Michael Ford have been married since 2010. She says Michael decided he wanted out because of trust issues, but she's calling BS.

She says she's dealing with a lot -- besides being pregnant, she and Ford have another kid that's been in and out of the hospital fighting cancer. Now the divorce. They have 8 kids already, including one from Ford's previous relationship, plus the one they're expecting.

Keke regained her composure and fired off a message to Mike's alleged side chicks. If her version of the story is accurate ... sounds like she's better off without him.

Taylor Swift to Kylie Jenner Look Where You Made Me Move

9/5/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift is horning in on the life of Kylie Jenner in a big way ... the singer took up a bigger billboard than hers, right across the street.

A new billboard featuring Taylor's mug promoting her new single, "Look What You Made Me Do," moved in across the street from a "Life of Kylie" billboard 50 feet away on the corner of Santa Monica Blvd. and La Cienega in WeHo.

By the looks on their faces ... we'd say Taylor's got more to prove here -- and more turf to claim in this epic billboard face-off.

Taylor isn't known to have beef with Kylie personally, but we all know she's not on good terms with Kim and Kanye ... and probably, by extension, the whole Kardashian clan.

How about picking on someone your own size, Tay?

Laura Govan I'm Done With Gilbert Arenas ... He'll Never Find Love Again

9/3/2017 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gilbert Arenas could be destined to live out his days never knowing true love again ... so says his ex, Laura Govan, who told TMZ Sports that she's done with Gil ... he only has fake love left.

Ouch.

We got Laura -- whose issues with Gil have been pretty legendary (we're talking public disses, destruction of property, the whole nine) -- out at LAX and asked her if there's any chance of a reconciliation.

Short answer? HELL DAMN NO. But that wasn't the end of the bad (?) news for Arenas, because Laura then went on to give us a laundry list of reasons why Gilbert's days of true love might be done for good.

Might wanna pay attention to Gilbert's Instagram for a couple days.

Kanye West Takes Shot at Taylor Swift ... From Behind

9/2/2017 6:49 AM PDT

Kanye West let his shirt do the talking Friday and the target was clearly Taylor Swift.

Kanye hit up Nobu in Malibu with some buds, wearing a tee emblazoned with the words, "She's beyond Good and Evil."

So the question ... Who else?

Of course it's Taylor, who took aim at Kanye in her song, "Look What You Made Me Do." Kanye has said he doesn't care what she sings and their feud is ancient, but this seems pretty premeditated.

Old feuds die hard, right?

Chuck D Flav is Flat Wrong to Sue Me, But He's Still Down with P.E.

8/31/2017 4:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chuck D and Flavor Flav WILL be on stage together for Public Enemy's next live show, even though Flav is accusing Chuck of ripping him off ... TMZ has learned.

Chuck D responded to Flav's lawsuit, telling us ... "Flav HAS HIS rights, but took a wrong road on this." The rap legend says his P.E. bandmate is just pissed about a third party merchandiser and the way the record biz now works.

TMZ broke the story ... Flavor Flav sued Chuck and several P.E. producers, claiming they've cut him off from royalties, merchandising dough and performance fees.

Still, Chuck made it clear ... "We will be [together] on a future stage." He also thinks Flav "will again be embarrassed admitting on stage about the way it spun out. It’s always this way with him."

He added he's ready and willing to address Flav's concerns in the future, but right now he just hopes his partner "will be woke in rehearsal studio and paying attention to the work we and all the members do worldwide."

Translation: Chuck's all good, but it's up to Flav to show up for the gigs.
