Keshia Knight Pulliam Cosby Trip Didn't Break Custody Deal ... Here's Proof Ed's Lying!

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.

Breaking News

Boris Becker -- who reportedly made more than $25 MILLION during his tennis career -- was declared bankrupt in a British court hearing early Wednesday morning.

The former #1 ranked player in the world is in the middle of a war with private banking firm Arbuthnot Latham & Co -- which claims Becker has owed them a substantial sum of money dating back to 2015. 

Becker had been fighting back in court trying to get officials to give him a time extension to get his finances in order -- and claimed that he will have millions of euros at is disposal soon after refinancing a property he owns in Spain. 

But the court shot him down saying he'd been delaying too long.

"It is not often the case that a professional person has a judgment outstanding against them since October 2015," the court official said ... "This is a historic debt."

Becker's representative John Briggs begged for mercy ... saying, "He is not a sophisticated individual when it comes to finances.

"I am asking for a real last chance for Mr. Becker to come good ... It has just taken longer than anticipated."

Electric Daisy Carnival Sued My Son Died from Ecstasy ... You Had No Medics to Save Him!

6/20/2017 6:12 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Electric Daisy Carnival was grossly unprepared for medical emergencies, and as a result, a 24-year-old man died after taking Ecstasy ... according to his father, who's now suing Live Nation and the festival's founder.

Nicholas Tom attended the annual 3-day festival in Las Vegas back in 2015. His father, Terry Tom, admits Nicholas popped Ecstasy during the concert -- and in 110 degree heat -- had a seizure and started foaming at the mouth.

In the suit, Mr. Tom says good Samaritans came to Nicholas's aid ... carrying him around looking for a medical tent, which took more than 30 minutes. Once they did, he claims volunteer staffers had no medical experience, and the actual medics had "their hands full and were unavailable."

He says Nicholas died on the floor of the medical tent.

According to the suit, festival organizers are well aware concertgoers take drugs, especially Ecstasy. Mr. Tom says at least one person has died each year at EDC events put on by the defendants, dating back to 2006.

In fact, one man died just this past weekend at EDC Las Vegas.

Tom says EDC should have had proper medical services, trained medical staff, and abundant water for the festival which was attended by 135,000 people. He's suing for wrongful death and negligence.

We've reached out to Live Nation and EDC's founding company, Insomniac.

CBS Radio Sued You Can't Call Me Obama!! That's Just Racist

6/20/2017 4:53 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

CBS Radio honchos gave an African-American employee a warm welcome by yelling, "Obama!" when she walked in the office -- think Norm on "Cheers," but more racist ... according to her lawsuit, anyway.

The woman was not flattered by the reference, and is suing CBS Radio in NYC ... claiming she was frequently harassed, intimidated and worse. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says other interactions were more menacing than the Presidential greeting.

For instance, she claims when she asked a supervisor a question, he replied, "I'd shoot this bitch if I had a gun." According to the suit, another supervisor overheard, asked what was going on ... and the first supervisor barked, "Chicago Double tags, bitch!"

She says she was confused and scared by the comment. 

The woman, who was fired, also describes a frat house environment. According to the suit, a male supervisor once described a massage to another manager -- while in earshot of others -- and said, "Rub-n-tugs" are the best.

She says she was fired because she complained about these issues, although CBS told her she was canned for being late for work.

CBS Radio tells us, "This claim is without merit."

EXCLUSIVE

Mackenzie's legal team says, "This is a frivolous lawsuit, which we intend to prove in a court of law. This is yet another example of a production company taking advantage of a young rising star.”Former "Dance Moms" star Mackenzie Ziegler is two-timing a music producer by bailing on performances and record sessions, and working with another producer on the side ... according to a lawsuit.

Kismet Music is going after 13-year-old Mackenzie and her mom, Melissa Gisoni ... saying they breached their 2014 deal.

In the docs, Kismet says when it signed Mackenzie -- who has more than a million YouTube followers -- she agreed to "deliver technically and commercially satisfactory records." In exchange, Kismet would try to secure a recording contract and distribution deal for her.

The producers say Mackenzie and her mom didn't seem to have any issues with the contract when they were cashing checks associated with music released under the deal -- but in 2016 something changed. According to the suit, Mackenzie started skipping recording sessions and meetings -- and when Kismet tried to contact her, at least 14 times ... radio silence.

Maddie Ziegler's kid sister is also working with another producer, a clear violation of her exclusivity deal with Kismet ... according to the suit.

Kismet is suing for 15% of Mackenzie's net profits under the deal.

EXCLUSIVE

Cedric the Entertainer's family suffered nausea, nosebleeds, vomiting and vertigo because the Southern California Gas Company allowed an environmental catastrophe to unfold ... according to the lawsuit he just filed.

In the docs, Cedric says the Gas Co. is responsible for releasing massive amounts of natural gas, hazardous chemicals and toxic pollutants into the air, starting in October, 2015. In SoCal the disaster's known as the Porter Ranch gas leak.

According to the suit, obtained by TMZ, the leak went on without interruption for nearly 4 months ... releasing around 100,000 tons of natural gas. The suit says that's 220 times greater volume than the amount of oil released during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Aside from their medical issues, Cedric says the leak also hit him in the wallet ... as his property value has plummeted. 

We've reached out to SoCal Gas, so far no word back.
