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.

Chanel West Coast I'm Not Mad at Charlamagne, But I Have a GREAT Comeback!

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 ...

EXCLUSIVE

Here's some nice, cool SHAAADE ... courtesy of Ice Cube

As we previously reported, Cube's BIG3 basketball league is in a standoff with Mayweather, McGregor over the T-Mobile Arena for August 26.

BIG3 says it booked the venue first and won't budge (unless the price is right) -- while the boxing promoters aren't backing down either.

So, we asked Cube about the big fight when we saw him at LAX on Monday -- his response?

"Oh, that fight is uh happening?"

Cold.

'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.

Twenty One Pilots Goes In On Coachella ... 'We Can't Stand It'

6/19/2017 9:06 AM PDT

Metallica vs. Napster, Slash vs. Axl, Pearl Jam vs. Ticketmaster ...  and now there's Twenty One Pilots vs Coachella after the rap rock duo blasted the desert festival over the weekend onstage in front of thousands.

The band was headlining Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware Friday night when frontman Tyler Joseph gave Coachella a scathing review: "It's not that we don't like Coachella, it's just that we can't stand it."

It's unclear if Tyler was just pumping up the crowd, but Coachella gets a bad rep for being an overcrowded cash cow where people care more about their outfits than the music onstage. Twenty One Pilots has never played the festival, but interestingly enough, both Coachella and Firefly are produced by promoter Goldenvoice. So, if anything, it seems the diss was aimed at the type of crowd Coachella draws.

We will say this ... the Firefly crowd and Twenty One Pilots set looked lit AF!

Andre Ward Kovalev's A Racist And I'm Gonna Kick His Ass For It

6/17/2017 12:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Andre Ward says Sergey Kovalev needs to be punished for his racist antics on social media, and tells TMZ Sports he's gonna do it with his fists when the two men meet on June 17.

Kovalev's been getting heat for a meme he posted to his social media recently, one that depicts a fake convo between him and Ward, where Andre repeatedly uses both the N- and F- words.

Sergey has since deleted the video meme, but the backlash was swift from those who said that making it sound as if Ward -- a devout Christian -- dropped nonstop n-bombs was racist.

BTW ... it's not the first time the Russian fighter has been accused of racism, but he has said in the past that cultural misunderstandings were to blame for the controversies.

Ward ain't buying it, and told us there was NO DOUBT the post was racist, and he's gonna make Kovalev pay for it.

"He's culturally sound enough to know some of the things he's been doing are racially motivated. It's more motivation, definitely more motivation," Ward says ... adding, "He needs to be silenced."

** HERE'S KOVALEV'S VIDEO -- WARNING: CONTAINS OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE**

Hot Boys Rapper Turk C'mon, Rick Ross ... Leave Me Out of Your Birdman Beef

6/16/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Turk from the Hot Boys is begging Rick Ross to quit dragging him into the longstanding feud between Rozay and Birdman.

Ross dropped his Birdman diss track, "Idols Become Rivals," this week, calling out the Cash Money honcho for allegedly withholding royalties from most, if not all, of his label's artists ... including Turk.

Rick raps, "Turk came home, take that boy a three piece" -- insinuating he can't afford food because Birdman ain't paying him. It's true, he once sued Birdman for $1.3 mil in unpaid royalties -- but Turk tells us he squashed the money war, and is on good terms with Baby.

He wants to keep it that way, and insists Rick should leave others out of his fights, or even better ... just stop fighting. 

Alex Jones Megyn Kelly Did Me Dirty ... I'm Releasing Unedited Footage!

Breaking News

"Infowars" host Alex Jones says he knew Megyn Kelly was going to screw him over ... so he's releasing his own behind-the-scenes footage from their interview before NBC airs the piece.

Jones says he suspected Kelly would misrepresent him in the TV special, and feels the promos for the controversial interview prove he was right. Turns out he recorded his convos with Kelly ... some before the interview even began ... to have his side of the story documented.

He's been asking NBC to cancel the segment -- scheduled to air Sunday -- because he thinks it's unfairly edited. He says the network refused, and that's why he's beating them to the punch.

It's unclear if Kelly knew she was being recorded by Jones. We've reached out to NBC News.

Rob Dew, a news director for Infowars, doubled down on Jones' promise to release the footage, which they say will include the full, unedited interview.

Breaking News

Seattle Seahawks stud Michael Bennett says there's NO ban on Future's music in the Seattle Seahawks locker room ... despite that tricky situation with Russell Wilson

Bennett appeared on "The Breakfast Club" with Charlamagne tha God -- and was asked if the team is required to keep Future off their playlists to appease the star QB, who's married to Ciara, Future's baby mama.

Obviously, Wilson and Future have beefed in the past -- though things appear to be cool right now. 

Bennett says he doesn't play Future to get at Russ -- he just likes the guy's music ... and says Wilson understands the guy is too popular to silence him.

Instead, Bennett says Wilson handles the situation like a pro.

The entire interview is pretty solid -- especially the part where Bennett shouts-out the one rapper he would hate for his wife to leave him for.

Tyron Woodley says he's cool with Dana White again -- thanks to some help from rap superstar Kendrick Lamar

It's no secret Tyron and his UFC boss have clashed in the past over things like fights, bookings and promotion -- it hasn't always been smooth sailing. 

But Dana did a solid for Tyron over the weekend -- inviting him to his son's 16th birthday where Kendrick was performing. 

Not only is Tyron a HUUUUUGE fan of Kendrick -- but his 13-year-old son is too -- and Dana made sure both Woodleys got the VIP treatment at the party. 

Woodley tells TMZ Sports he and Dana are on great terms right now -- and says he's expecting the peace to last at least a couple of weeks.

Happy birthday, Dana's kid.
