Wyclef Jean Pissed Off After Getting Handcuffed In Mistaken ID Pullover

3/21/2017 5:39 AM PDT
Breaking News

Wyclef Jean blasted cops in L.A. for slapping the cuffs on him overnight, thinking he was an armed robbery suspect.

Wyclef and 2 female passengers, one of them his manager, were pulled over by L.A. County Sheriff's deputies around 1:30 AM in West Hollywood. Law enforcement sources tell us his vehicle matched the description of a car used in an armed robbery right around the same time, in the same neighborhood -- and Wyclef was wearing a red bandana ... also matching the suspect description.

As for how he ended up in handcuffs -- we're told one of the women got out of the vehicle abruptly, and while talking to deputies ... Wyclef reached toward his waistband. Deputies put on the cuffs for about 6 minutes while they sorted this out.

One of Wyclef's passengers shot video of him blasting LAPD (it was really the Sheriff's Dept.) for detaining him. We're told 'Clef and his passengers were released once deputies realized there were no women with the real suspect.

As it turns out, that suspect was apprehended around the same time.

Of course, Wyclef knew none of this at the time ... and is extremely heated in the video.

Jaime Pressly Gun Stolen in Break-In ...

3/21/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0320-jaime-pressly-38-special-tmz-getty-1Jaime Pressly lost more than $30k in jewelry when burglars broke into her home over the weekend ... we've learned they also made off with a .38 caliber revolver.

The gun raises the stakes in the latest celebrity break-in. The burglars, who entered by breaking a window, got the gun because they stole the safe in which it was stored. It's unclear if they knew a gun was inside.

This is the second safe that was stolen by a celebrity. Nick Young also lost his safe when he was hit last month.

And we've now learned why Jamie's security alarm wasn't on ... she was unsure how to work it.

Joey Badass Sued For Knocking Down 'Donald Trump'

3/21/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A Donald Trump impersonator is suing rapper Joey Badass for pushing him off stage.

Phillip Wilburn, who's appeared on "Conan" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" before, says he was performing at an L.A. MTV event in September when Joey shoved him in the back with such force he fell off the stage.

Wilburn says he had to shell out $1k in medical expenses after the fall and might possibly need surgery so things could add up to $25k. He thinks he'll lose around $50k in lost profits due to his injuries.

Wilburn wants more than $1.5 million in damages. 

Check out the video of the incident.

Jared Fogle Attacker Hailed As American Hero ... (Read Prison Letters)

EXCLUSIVE

0320-jared-fogle-steven-nigg-tmz-2Jared Fogle's turned a guy doing hard time for gun charges into a true blue American hero, and we have the letters that show the kinda love he's been getting.

We broke the story ... Steve Nigg is the inmate who handed Fogle his ass during a brutal beatdown last year in the Englewood, Colorado prison. What we didn't realize is Nigg became a rock star who was flooded with fan mail.

TMZ obtained several emotional letters sent to the 61-year-old. One said, "We've never met but I heard that you beat up Jared from Subway, the child rapist." Sorry you got put in solitary but please know that myself AND my organization that works with child rape victims are very very thankful for what you did."

Another one, written by a child, said, "I am writing this letter to thank you for your service. What you did took courage?" We're told the young fan also deposited $2 in Nigg's commissary account ... while another fan slipped him $50 and wrote, "This is my way of saying thank you for standing up for the children that are victims to scumbags like fogle."

Check out the gallery to see all the letters. As we told you, Nigg was later transferred to an Oklahoma prison, but he has zero regret about taking down Fogle.

Young Thug's Ex Manager Sues YT's Finance Guys You Nimrods Got His Lights Turned Off

3/21/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0320-young-thug-instagram-01Young Thug's former personal manager says his reputation has been ruined by Thug's finance guys who trashed him to cover their own incompetence.

The manager, Manny Halley -- who's repped a bunch of stars including Keyshia Cole and Nicki Minaj -- has filed a $50 million defamation suit against David Weise & Associates.

It all started when Weise's company sent an email in December to a bunch of people, claiming Manny had racked up more than $200k in unauthorized charges. The email got picked up by various urban blogs, and Manny says it's ruined his rep in the community.

Manny says the $200k was for YT's private jets for his concert tour.

Manny says he knows what's up ... claiming the Weise company bungled YT's financial affairs to the point his cell phone service and the lights in his home were shut off.  

And Manny says before he got trashed he tried to get the Weise company fired, so that's when they used the email as a preemptive strike.

Chance the Rapper I Settled My Child Support Beef

3/20/2017 1:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

Chance the Rapper isn't just hip-hop's favorite new artist ... he owns up to his responsibility in the child support department too.

Chance struck an agreement with Kirsten Corley over how much he'll ante up in child support for their 17-month-old daughter.

Apparently, the case was open and shut Monday when they both walked into court.

A lawyer for Chance's ex told the Chicago Tribune ... "This case ended quickly because of the unusually high level of cooperation between the parents putting their child's best interest first."

Chance's own lawyer, Tanya Stanish, said they had come to a fair resolution.

Chance said in an interview last week that he's considering moving back in with his parents ... despite winning 3 Grammy awards this year and riding a HUGE wave of success following his free 2016 mixtape, "Coloring Book."

He also publicly announced a $1 million donation to Chicago Public Schools earlier this month.

Ivanka Trump Company Sued Over 'Unfair' Kellyanne Conway Publicity

Breaking News

0320-ivanka-trump-GETTY-02Ivanka Trump's company is crushing some of its competition so badly, she's now facing a lawsuit from one of the companies on the losing end.

Modern Appealing Clothing thinks President Trump's daughter is getting an "unfair" boost in sales -- allegedly several hundred percent -- based on the fact she's now the First Daughter. The company points to huge public spectacles like Kellyanne Conway's February appearance on FOX News, where she gave a shout-out to Ivanka's clothing line.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, the company says even the prez is "exploiting the power and prestige of the White House" simply to help his daughter's company make a few bucks.

Modern Appealing filed a class action lawsuit, demanding Ivanka's company stop using her political ties to improve her bottom line.

Nordstrom famously pulled Ivanka's shoes, citing lagging sales numbers -- but Modern Appealing Clothing seems to think she's doing just fine. Too fine, in fact.

EXCLUSIVE

0320-jamie-pressly-tmz-01Jaime Pressly did not have her burglar alarm on when burglars hit Friday night, and they made off with $30k in jewelry ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Jaime was the latest celeb to be hit in L.A. -- other victims include Kendall Jenner, Yasiel Puig and Alanis Morissette.  

The thieves got in by breaking a window, but we're told the security company never called the cops and therefore they believe the alarm wasn't on.

Jaime discovered the burglary when she returned home after an evening out.

In addition to the jewelry, the crooks also took her laptop.

0320-tom-brady-GETTY-02update_graphic_red_bar9:02 AM PT -- Sources connected to the investigation tell us 2 Patriots jerseys and 1 Broncos helmet were recovered in Mexico.

The Broncos helmet is likely that of Von Miller, as Jay Glazer reported.

We're told no cleats have been recovered ... at least not yet.

Glazer said Miller's cleats also went M.I.A. after Super Bowl 50. Unclear if it's connected to this investigation.update-grey-gray-barThe man who jacked Tom Brady's Super Bowl jerseys may have ALSO stolen Von Miller's helmet and cleats from Super Bowl 50 ... so says Jay Glazer.

Glazer appeared on "Undisputed" on FS1 and said investigators used video footage to identify the suspect in the Super Bowl 51 caper. 

Glazer says investigators saw the suspect enter the locker room behind Bill Belichick and leave a short time later with something tucked under his arm. 

Glazer says the suspect had a legitimate media credential -- but may not be a real journalist. He may have been running a scam.

And get this ... Glazer says the Denver Broncos believe the suspect hit Von Miller in the previous Super Bowl.

Tom Brady's Stolen Jersey RECOVERED On 'Foreign Soil' ... Viva Mexico!

3/20/2017 5:50 AM PDT
Breaking News

0321-tom-brady-getyThe FBI has recovered Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl 51 jersey and the Houston PD says it was tracked to MEXICO!!!

The NFL says Tom's Super Bowl 49 jersey -- which was ALSO stolen (secretly, apparently) -- was recovered as well. 

Officials believe it was jacked by the same person and moved outside the U.S. ... so says CSNNE's Tom Curran

Jay Glazer -- who first reported the story -- says the FBI teamed up with the NFL security team for the recovery -- and is now in the process of returning the jerseys to Brady.

So, who's the thief?? 

The NFL says the items were found in the possession of a "credentialed member of the international media." 

Of course, the jersey went missing in the minutes after Brady and the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.

Video later surfaced (courtesy of our friends at Yahoo Sports) showing Brady searching through his equipment bag for the jersey while insisting that he "100 percent" put it in there.

Multiple law enforcement agencies joined the search -- including the Texas Rangers. Brady valued the jersey at $500,000 on the police report filed in Houston.

Ezekiel Elliott Yacht Party Searched By Coast Guard

Update_Graphic_Bar

5:15 PM PT -- Elliott's attorney tells TMZ Sports the Coast Guard boarded the yacht to make sure there were enough life jackets onboard. He says no citations were issued, and the party continued.

Update_Graphic_Bar_Grey_Gray

Ezekiel Elliott had his good time temporarily ruined again this week ... only now it was by the U.S. Coast Guard during a rager yacht party in Miami. 

Ezekiel was partying with friends and a gaggle of chicks Saturday on a yacht called No Rules II, when a Coast Guard cruiser pulled up. We're told the yacht had docked minutes before.

Eyewitnesses tell us 2 guards boarded the yacht and conducted a 20-minute search on-board. We're told once the search was complete, the guards went back to their vessel and took off. 

Unclear what they were looking for, or why they approached Ezekiel and co. A rep for the Coast Guard tells us they're checking ... but he believes it was probably a safety check to make sure the boat and the guests were in compliance with maritime safety protocol.

Also important to note ... the yacht did not belong to Ezekiel. Sources tell us it belongs to a guy who rents 'em out to celebs and other rich folks. Ezekiel was just there for the ride.

0319-ezekiel-elliott-coast-guard-boat-TMZ-03Either way, it's been a bad week for the star NFL player. You'll recall ... he caught a lot of heat for forcefully exposing a woman's breast during a St. Paddy's parade. Now this.  

Selena Gomez Don't Even Dare Call Yourself By My Name

EXCLUSIVE

0320-selena-gomez-the-weeknd-PCN-01Selena Gomez wants to be the only Selena Gomez in entertainment ... period.

Selena has filed legal docs asking for the right to market jewelry ... which we get. But the docs go on ... she wants to make sure no one can do a live TV or movie appearance or distribute music with the name Selena Gomez.

She also wants a lock on Selena Gomez "fan club services," although we assume that doesn't mean people can't start a Selena Gomez fan club ... just not on behalf of a different Selena Gomez.

So, all you Selena Gomez wannabees ... don't even think about it.
