Britney Spears Dad Wants K-Fed's Tax Returns 'Cause He Thinks Kev's a Freeloader

3/22/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Britney Spears' dad is calling Kevin Federline's bluff that he needs more child support to care for the 2 kids he had with the singer ... we've learned Jamie Spears will demand to see Kevin's 2017 tax return to see if he's working for a living or sponging off her.

We've learned K-Fed's lawyer sent Jamie Spears a letter Tuesday demanding her 2017 tax return.  Kevin will be getting the exact same letter in the next day or so.

We're told Jamie Spears ain't budging ... he won't agree to pay Kevin a cent over the $20,000 a month he's been getting until Kevin gives him a full accounting on how the money is being spent. Jamie believes Kevin is misusing some of the $20k by spending it on his 4 other children from different women.

So far K-Fed and his lawyer haven't provided such an accounting, although they have demanded more child support. Jamie's position -- the kids needs haven't changed, so the only issue is whether $20k a month cuts it.

We're told Jamie wants to make sure the kids are getting what they need from both Kevin and Britney, and if a judge ultimately says she should pay more, he'll be down with it. But he wants to control the purse strings to make sure Kevin isn't squandering the cash on matters unrelated to Sean and Jayden.

Bobby V Suspect in Georgia Rape Case

3/22/2018 12:40 AM PDT

Bobby V is listed as the suspect in a rape that allegedly happened last weekend, according to cops now investigating ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the R&B singer was named by a woman who filed a police report in Cobb County, GA early Monday, March 19. We're told the alleged rape occurred Sunday. It's unclear where or what the circumstances were. We do know Bobby lives in the area.

Cops say they have an open investigation into the case, so they're keeping details under wraps for now.

Bobby's rep tells us they are pursuing legal action "against what appears to be a weak yet calculated attempt to obtain financial gain through ulterior motives in the matter." The rep did not say the alleged victim requested money directly from Bobby, but called her version of events an apparent false report.

The rep added, "Bobby takes any allegation against women very seriously. However, false allegations damage true victims of sexual abuse." 

You'll recall ... Bobby claimed he was the victim of an extortion plot last year, when a video surfaced online of him allegedly skipping out on a prostitute without paying.

Tarek El Moussa Sues Realtor You Swindled Me Outta $35k!!!

3/22/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Tarek El Moussa got swindled out of $35k by a crooked realtor who later got his ass arrested for doing the exact same thing to others ... so claims Tarek, who's suing the realtor to get his jack back.

The "Flip or Flop" star is going after Mario Gonzalez and MCR Realty ... claiming, in docs obtained by TMZ, he struck a deal in April 2014 to buy a house in Cypress, CA. Tarek, however, says he grew suspicious after Gonzalez told him to wire a $35k deposit, but reluctantly agreed to wire the cash.

Things went south from there. Tarek says Gonzalez went radio silent for months, so he went to cops. Tarek says he later learned Gonzalez had been arrested. We checked ... and Gonzalez was arrested by the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. in December 2016 for grand theft.

Gonzalez also had his real estate license revoked. Tarek's suing for his $35k plus damages.

Kanye West Nothing's Easy, Yeezy!! Chinese Co. Trying to Take Over His Brand

3/21/2018 5:26 PM PDT

Kanye West might have to strap on his fightin' shoes ... because a company has come out of nowhere to compete for the right to use his Yeezy nickname.

According to new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Kanye's company was outmaneuvered by a Chinese company that swooped in and filed trademark paperwork in an effort to stake its claim to the popular Yeezy brand name.

Kanye's company has owned the name Yeezy for footwear since 2013, but for whatever reason abandoned the trademark for other clothing items besides shoes in 2017. The Chinese company -- listed as Fujian Baby Network Technology Co. -- seized the opportunity by immediately filing trademark paperwork for the term "Yeezy Boost" for its clothing products.

The rapper's company then refiled its application for Yeezy clothing, but the trademark office said not so fast ... because the Chinese company now has dibs.

The good news -- Kanye shouldn't have to worry about this affecting Yeezy sneakers, but if he wants to branch out and start making mittens or even g-strings ... he might be in for a legal battle.

Jacquees Busted on South Beach ... Told Cops, 'Don't Touch Me!'

3/21/2018 5:07 PM PDT

Jacquees got into a confrontation with cops on South Beach -- with a bunch of Spring Breakers watching -- and ended up getting arrested, after allegedly driving without a seat belt ... TMZ has learned.

The singer was driving down the famed Ocean Drive Wednesday -- in a Lambo -- when a Miami Beach officer pulled him over. According to cops, the officer told Jacquees he was getting pulled over for failure to wear his seat belt, and was asked to present his driver's license.

When he refused to show his license, the officer told him to get out of the car -- which he did, but he refused to walk with the officer to the sidewalk. Cops say Jacquees yelled, "Do not touch me."

By this time, a vocal crowd of Spring Break kids gathered and they were clearly pissed about the situation. As a result, the officer called for backup. In the video, you see Jacquees get cuffed, and the arresting officer yanks his arm pretty hard on the way to the cruiser.

He was booked for failure to obey a lawful command, and for the seat belt infraction ... both misdemeanors.

Return to your normal Spring Break activities, kids. 

Ozzy Osbourne Suing AEG You're Making Me a Slave to Staples

3/21/2018 2:37 PM PDT

AEG Chairman and CEO Jay Marciano tells us, “This suit is without merit and we will vigorously fight it. We welcome a closer look at the global live entertainment market and, specifically, our practices and the practices of our competition."

Marciano adds, "AEG has always worked hard to put artists first. At the same time, we must respond to the actions of those we compete with, specifically Live Nation and Madison Square Garden. Fighting for a level playing field is fair competition at its core.”Ozzy Osbourne is suing AEG, claiming the entertainment group is essentially blackmailing him to perform at the Staples Center ... or else.

Ozzy is scheduled to perform at the O2 Arena in London, but AEG has a giant string attached ... they won't let him play the O2 unless he also performs at Staples in L.A.

Ozzy feels this is effectively a violation of the antitrust laws, which prohibit businesses from gaining a stranglehold on customers. 

Osbourne has set his sights on the newly refurbished Forum in nearby Inglewood ... not so much because he's set on performing there, but because he wants a bidding war between Staples and The Forum so he can line his pockets with more money.

According to his agreement with AEG, if Ozzy performs anywhere within a 25-mile radius of L.A. he MUST perform at Staples, and that takes away his leverage. As for the O2 Arena ... the only way he can play there is if he plays ball with AEG in Los Angeles.   

The lawsuit includes an email from Sharon Osbourne to AEG, saying, "Shame on AEG for bringing artists into a power struggle that you're having with your competition, Live Nation."

Ozzy wants a judge to invalidate the provision in his contract that forces him to perform at Staples.

XXXTentacion Can I Get Off House Arrest, Judge'?' I Gotta Tour to 'Stay Afloat'!

3/21/2018 12:13 PM PDT

12:51 PM PT -- The judge just granted XXX's request, he's officially let off of house arrest. His attorney, David Bogenschutz, tells us XXX and his legal team are very pleased with the decision, and it was warranted based on his performance the last few months. David says, "Hopefully these are the first steps towards complete freedom."

The rapper will submit to monthly drug tests and report his travel.

XXXTentacion is pulling a DMX and asking a judge to let him off house arrest so he can make some cash ... TMZ has learned.

XXX's legal team filed docs, obtained by TMZ, asking a Florida court to remove the rapper's ankle monitor and let him out of the house so he can hit the road and make some touring money after his new record, "?" (the name of the album), hit the shelves last week.

As we reported ... XXX was placed under house arrest after being hit with 15 new felony charges for what prosecutors believe to be witness tampering by coercing his girlfriend into not testifying against him.

According to his attorneys, XXX is gonna be in dire straits financially if he isn't allowed to tour and reap the benefits of his latest work. As is the case with many in the music biz ... XXX insists artists make hardly any dough from the record sales themselves.

XXX's lawyers say he's willing to abide by the same probation terms he was subject to prior to the most recent charges in his domestic violence case ... namely, submitting a travel itinerary, submitting to drug and alcohol tests ... and checking in with a PO early and often.

Considering XXXTentacion "desperately requires" this touring income to "stay afloat" -- according to his team -- he might wanna look to DMX for some guidance. Well, partly ... we suppose.

Breaking News

The woman accusing Fred Savage of harassment and assault claims he targeted other women and it was widely known.

YoungJoo Hwang, a costume designer on the set of the TV show, "The Grinder," appeared at a news conference Wednesday morning flanked by her attorney, Anahita Sedaghatfar of the Cochran Firm and and went into more detail about the lawsuit against Savage for harassment, assault, battery and discrimination. 

Hwang -- who says she was inspired by the #MeToo movement -- claims Fred was aggressive towards her, cursed at her and was demeaning from the moment she started working on the show. She alleges she's not the only woman Savage targeted and was encouraged not to report the conduct "because a lot of people would lose their jobs."

Sedaghatfar claimed 20th Century Fox has, to this date, not conducted a full investigation into Hwang's claims and wouldn't say whether her client's filed a report with LAPD 

As we reported ... Savage says Hwang's accusations are without merit and absolutely untrue, and claims they were investigated but ... "None of her claims could be substantiated because they did not happen."

Orlando Brown I Got Warrants on Warrants ... Wanted for Skipping Court

3/21/2018 12:39 PM PDT

Ex-Disney star Orlando Brown is now a wanted man, because he failed to show for court ... TMZ has learned.

Court sources tell us ... the former "That's So Raven" star was a no-show for his scheduled court hearing Wednesday, so the judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest.

Brown's hearing was for his arrest in January, when a family dispute led to cops realizing there was ANOTHER active warrant for him -- for allegedly striking his girlfriend last year in Torrance.

That arrest resulted in an epic smiling mug shot -- which he might get a chance to top when/if cops catch up to him, or he surrenders.

Fred Savage Lawsuit Allegedly Told Crew 'Don't F***ing Look at Me!'

3/21/2018 9:54 AM PDT

11:00 AM PT -- Savage says Hwang's accusations are without merit and absolutely untrue, and claims they were investigated, but ... "None of her claims could be substantiated because they did not happen."

Savage says he's worked in entertainment his whole life and has "always endeavored to treat everyone on any set I work on respectfully and professionally." He adds ... he supports all people who feel they are being mistreated to come forward and speak out, but he also must "protect myself and my family from those seeking to tarnish my good name."

Fred Savage is getting sued for allegedly assaulting a costumer on his TV show "The Grinder" -- but she also claims he regularly tormented female crew members, demanding they don't make eye contact with him.

In the suit, filed Wednesday in L.A., Youngjoo Hwang says Savage constantly gave her dirty looks, rolled his eyes and hurled profanities at her while they were working on the show in 2015. Hwang says Savage made no secret of the fact he didn't like her, saying things like, "It's so f**king annoying that I have to be nice to you when I f**king hate you!"

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Savage had a rep for intimidating and tormenting female crew members, demanding they stop following him around -- even though it was their job to do so -- and told them, "Don't ever even f**king look at me anymore!"

TMZ broke the story ... Hwang claims Savage eventually blew up at her when she dusted dandruff off his tuxedo jacket, as part of her job. In the suit, she says he yelled, "Do not touch me with your hands" -- and when she explained what she was doing he "violently struck [her] arm three times with his hand."

Hwang says she reported this, but was told by an executive producer, "I'm not even sure what Fred did constituted harassment and I don't think you should report it to H.R."

She claims FOX protected its star, and did nothing to clean up the hostile work environment Savage created. As we told you, a source close to Fred says FOX actually did investigate Hwang's allegation and found zero evidence to back her story.

Hwang and her attorney, from the Cochran Firm, are planning a news conference at 11 AM PT, which we will live stream.
