T.I. Arrest 911 Call from Guard Shack

5/17/2018 6:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The security guard who called cops on T.I. felt threatened and frantically called 911 as T.I. walked back to his guard shack.

TMZ's obtained the 911 call ... where you can hear the guard telling the operator, "A resident is walking back here at the guard shack where I'm at."

The guard continued describing the scene, "I've been threatened by a resident and he's here now knocking on the door."

You can hear T.I. in the background telling him to step outside the guard shack because he wants his name. The guard refused to give him that information. T.I. also reminded the man he owns a home there and pays for his services.

T.I. got heated and repeatedly said, "You're making it worse for yourself, man" and warned that at some point "you're gonna have to deal with me." He does calm down and asks the guard to step outside to talk.

TMZ also obtained police video back at the station after T.I. was arrested for public drunkenness, simple assault and disorderly conduct. An officer told him he was "acting a fool" for going back to the guard shack. As you'd imagine ... T.I. strongly disagreed. 

T.I. Arrest That Guard Cursed Out My Wife!!! But I Didn't Try to Fight Him

5/17/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

T.I. says the security guard who called cops on him went off on Tiny over the phone, and escalated an already tense situation by refusing to give up his name.

T.I. tells TMZ ... the guard at his gated community in Henry County, GA left out a lot of details when police arrived -- like the fact he was sleeping at his post, and T.I. had to wake him up Wednesday around 4 AM. Although the police report says T.I. yelled, "Hook me up" to the guard, the rap mogul tells us he actually said, "Look me up."

He says the guard claimed he couldn't find T.I. on the resident directory, so T.I. had his wife, Tameka "Tiny" Harris, call. He says Tiny asked why the hold-up and said, "Just let him in." T.I. claims the guard barked back at Tiny, "Who the f*** do you think you is talking to me like this?"

T.I. says he was livid about that, and admits yelling obscenities. He says he reminded the guard, "I pay you" ... and then demanded entry again. He says the guard relented, but when T.I. demanded his name in order to report him to a supervisor, he says the guard only stared with a "blank face."

T.I. says he went home, cooled down and then decided to walk back to get the guy's name -- but only got more of the silent treatment. He admits, at this point, saying, "You can step outside the booth into the street, so we can talk."

He denies having any intent to get physical.

T.I. says he saw the guard on the phone telling cops, "Yes, a black male right in front of me in a striped shirt." T.I.'s upset the responding officers spoke to the guard and his supervisor behind closed doors, then handcuffed him before even asking his side of the story.  

T.I. adds neither the police nor the guard's supervisor looked at surveillance video to confirm what really happened.

Overall, he tells us he's most pissed the guard, who is African-American, never gave up his name or accepted responsibility for attacking Tiny and falling asleep on the job.

We called the security company and they had no comment.

EXCLUSIVE

The man who was arrested inside Rihanna's home, where he was waiting to "have sex" with her, is now facing 3 felony charges.

Eduardo Leon was set to face a judge Monday afternoon in L.A., but even before arriving in court, he was charged with stalking, burglary and vandalism ... all felonies. He was also charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest.

TMZ broke the story ... the 26-year-old man was tased and arrested last week after Rihanna's assistant found him inside her L.A.-area house where he stayed at least an entire day. He told police he wanted to have sex with the singer, not rape her.

Leon allegedly broke into another home a week earlier, thinking it was the singer's. He was also booked for residential burglary and trespassing.

Jay Ajayi Sued Trashed Mansion, Shoved Owner ... Ajayi Denies Allegations

EXCLUSIVE

4:48 PM PT -- A rep for Ajayi tells TMZ Sports the lawsuit is bogus ... adamantly denying Jay ever physically pushed the owner of the home.

They also deny Jay damaged the property in any way ... or hosted any parties.

Instead they claim the owner tried to get Jay and his friend to pay him cash directly -- bypassing the Airbnb website -- so they say they left the house several days early ... but still paid the full rate.

Ajayi's people also say the group filed a complaint against the home owner with Airbnb.

NFL star Jay Ajayi shoved the owner of a fancy L.A. mansion who charged the Eagles running back $25k in damages for trashing the place ... this according to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports

The 24-year-old is being sued by the owner of a swanky 6,000 square foot pad located above the famous Sunset Strip ... where the RB and a friend stayed back in February for 5 days after Ajayi won the Super Bowl

According to the suit, Ajayi and his buddy threw at least 3 parties at the house despite the fact they were specifically told -- NO PARTIES! 

In fact, the owner claims he charged a $5,000 fee for each party at the home ... which Ajayi never paid.

Additionally, the owner claims Ajayi broke a table, scratched some floors and violated the no smoking rule. 

In total, Ajayi racked up $25,000 in penalty fees -- but when the owner confronted Jay on Feb. 18, he claims Ajayi "pushed [him] on [his] chest in a menacing and threatening manner."

The owner describes the incident as battery -- and said he had to call local security to remove the NFL star from the property. 

We reached out to Ajayi's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.

President Trump You're Late on White House Rent ... 1 Year Costs Ya $240k!

5/10/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

President Trump is SUPER late on his White House rent -- about a couple hundred grand in the hole, in fact -- according to a new lawsuit. Bear with us ... okay?

A dude named William Feegba is trying to take Trump to court over an alleged landlord tenant breach -- suing the Prez for the 1 full year he's been staying at the White House, and demanding he fork over $240k in unpaid rent at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. at a rate of $25k/month. You read that right ... we couldn't make sense of the math either.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Feegba claims to be a descendant of George Washington, which he seems to think gives him ownership of the WH. Absurd as it sounds, that's his story -- and he's been sticking to it since Jimmy Carter's days ... kinda. 

Feegba started filing retroactive suits just last year against every president since 1977 -- and he says everyone from Jimmy to Trump owes him back rent ranging from $12k to $100k. None of the complaints have been successful, btw ... and now it's Donnie's turn.

Only time will tell if he'll collect from 45. No word yet on any potential eviction proceedings.

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Theroux's neighbor is trying to strong-arm neighbors caught in the middle of their property war ... according to Justin, who says it's gotten so scary he needs court-ordered protection.

Theroux claims Norman Resnicow is flying into angry, violent tirades with other residents in their building, because he's trying to scare them into not testifying on Theroux's behalf.

According to the docs ... Resnicow's repeated verbal assaults are working, he's made them reluctant to testify in the heated feud over renovations at Justin's crib. JT says one resident told him Resnicow's behavior has "reached a very dangerous level for everyone in the building."

Theroux also accuses Resnicow of trespassing on his property in order to harass workers and take measurements to help his case. In the docs, he says his neighbor invited a "disreputable tabloid" into their building in an attempt to publicly embarrass him.

The actor's asking the court for a restraining order to keep Resnicow from harassing, intimidating or threatening anyone who has or may testify on Theroux's behalf, and to stop using abusive language in emails as well.

We reached out to Resnicow ... no word back yet.

Big Sean's got big plans to get his pad just right for summer pool parties ... and that means making sure his kitchen's on point, too.

The rapper's obtained a building permit for his 7-bed, 8-bath, 11,000 sq. ft. Beverly Hills mansion -- which was formerly Slash's -- to remove and enlarge the window facing the swimming pool ... according to L.A. City docs.

There's also a permit for Sean's home to re-plaster the pool and add some new lighting.

But Big Sean's biggest project -- according to the docs -- is pumping around $22k into a remodeling job to his kitchen and bathroom.

We broke the story ... the rapper bought the home from the legendary rocker in November at a Slash'ed price. Apparently, he's using what he saved to really deck out the digs.

Don Cheadle From Bungalow to Wonder Home ... Flips Marina del Rey Crib

4/30/2018 1:19 PM PDT

Don Cheadle fixed up a shack of a crib near Venice Beach into an architectural marvel in a matter of 4 years -- and now he's cleaned up unloading the place ... TMZ has learned.

The "House of Lies" actor's Marina del Rey home recently sold for about $2.4 million after listing it earlier this year around the same price. The twist ... he bought the original property in 2014 for less than $900k ... and completely rebuilt it into what you see now.

The vertically-inclined 2,400 sq. foot home has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, with 10-foot high ceilings at the highest point in its two-story design. Originally, it was a mere bungalow at just 800 sq. ft. -- so Don and his wife, Bridgid Coulter, clearly did a number on the inside and out. It now features French oak floors, marble countertops and a roof deck for a sweet view. The listing agents are Rhonda Payne and James Coulter.

Don's coming off a VERY strong 'Avengers' weekend playing War Machine -- it actually has the biggest box office opening weekend ever. More good news for the Cheadle-Coulters!
