Young Thug Drug Case If There Are Snitches ... Prosecutors Need to Tell Me

9/19/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Young Thug thinks there might be a rat or two spilling the tea to cops in his Georgia drug case -- so he's asking a judge to order prosecutors to expose them.

YT's lawyers are demanding any and all info related to potential snitches who might've sold their client down the river in his drug case, where he was slapped with 8 felonies. If anyone cut a deal or got leniency in return for snitching on the rapper ... the lawyers want to know, and they want names.

Not only that ... Thug's lawyers also want info that will help them rip apart would-be canaries, including criminal records, personnel files and any other relevant dirt. 

We broke the story ... Young Thug was charged with possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone and weed. He's also charged with possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam, codeine (2 counts) and a firearm ... all stemming from his arrest last September when he got pulled over for tinted windows. 

It's not the only legal case YT's dealing with right now -- he's also facing a felony gun charge from a weapons bust in L.A. last month.

Travis Barker Sues Routine Pre-Tour MRI Left Me Unable to Drum

9/18/2018 5:04 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Travis Barker is suing the people he says cost him his ability to play the drums, tour and live a normal life.

You'll remember ... Barker was involved in a nasty car accident back in July when his SUV collided with a school bus. He's also been sidelined from touring with Blink-182 after suffering nerve damage, damage to his veins and a staph infection.

We're told the injuries have been life-changing for Barker, and a lawsuit has become necessary. 

In the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Barker claims in June he went to The Medical Imaging Center in Santa Monica to receive an MRI as part of his routine checkup for his upcoming tour. Barker was to be sedated before the procedure, but technicians were unable to find a vein, sticking him at least 40x times in the process with a dirty needle and giving him staph. He's suing the medical office.  

As for the bus crash ... the driver of the school bus made an illegal left turn and caused the collision. He's suing the driver of the bus and the bus company for the crash.

Travis doesn't specify how much he's asking for in damages, but you can bet it'll be a lot considering he's been unable to drum and has been forced to turn down numerous offers. 

Travis' 14-year-old son Landon is also a part of the lawsuit.

NFL's Corey Liuget Claims Trainer Injected Him w/ PEDs ... Sues For $15 MIL!!

9/18/2018 1:13 PM PDT

Chargers star DL Corey Liuget claims his former trainer injected him with PEDs without his consent and cost him over $15 MILLION ... and now he's suing to get that cash back.

The NFL stud -- who's been with the Chargers since '11 -- was suspended for the first 4 games of this season after testing positive for a banned substance.

Now, Liuget's filed a lawsuit ... pointing the finger at his longtime trainer -- Ian Danney.

Liuget claims he went to get treatment for broken foot bones in November 2017 ... when Danney injected him with what he said was a "strong dose of an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory."

He says 2 days later he gave a urine sample ... and it came back dirty.

Liuget says he then confronted his trainer ... who admitted to giving him prescription medication -- but denied giving him a banned substance.

But, Liuget is still pissed ... and says it's cost him a fortune in salary and endorsements -- not to mention the public humiliation he says he's endured.

Liuget's asking for more than $15 MILLION in damages.

He's eligible to return to the field in 2 weeks.

LeSean McCoy's Baby Mama NFL Star Used Our Kid As A Pawn To Cover Up His Role in Home Invasion

9/18/2018 2:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2:22 PM PT -- LeSean just replied to the docs, saying, "The allegations made against me today regarding my relationship with my son are provably false, outrageously inaccurate and offensive. I have a loving and close knit relationship with my son."

He continues, "The young boy is my whole life. With a custody case coming in November, I can see why these false allegations are surfacing."

LeSean McCoy's baby mama claims the NFL star used their son as a pawn in order to vouch for his character, so she would shoot down rumors he was involved in a home invasion that left another one of McCoy's baby mamas brutally beaten.

You'll recall, McCoy's home was hit in a home invasion back in July that left ex-GF Delicia Cordon almost unrecognizable because she was so badly beaten. Cordon and others insinuated McCoy may have orchestrated the attack because he allegedly wanted Cordon out of the house. Cordon has since filed a lawsuit against LeSean.

On Tuesday, McCoy's baby mama -- Stephanie Maisonet -- filed new docs in the Cordon lawsuit.

Maisonet claims the day before the home invasion, she overheard LeSean on the phone saying, "I need to get this bitch out of my house."

Maisonet says after the attack on Cordon, LeSean called her -- something he didn't often do -- and offered her a deal. Maisonet claims McCoy told her if she'd publicly support his character and insinuate he wasn't behind the attack, he'd roll over in their custody case with their 6-year-old son ... and let her enroll the child in school in Miami.

Maisonet says she allowed a friend of McCoy's to access her Instagram account and post a positive message about the NFLer. 

 

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ Sports -- Maisonet says she believes LeSean has abused their son on multiple occasions ... even making a report with child services. She concludes, "I regret ever agreeing to help LeSean McCoy in this case ... I feel like I am sending our son to a monster every two weeks."

She also included a photo of their son, showing alleged bruises from LeSean on his face.

Tiger Woods Probation for DUI Ends Early ... Free to Drink Again

9/18/2018 11:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tiger Woods can throw back a celebratory cocktail or 2 because he's off probation for his DUI ... TMZ has learned.

Eldrick's probation was terminated by a judge a month earlier than expected because he "successfully completed all regular and special conditions" ... according to a new legal doc obtained by TMZ.

As we reported ... Woods copped a plea in his DUI case at his Florida hearing on October 27, 2017, and as part of his deal to avoid jail time he agreed to enter a DUI diversion program. He was also put on probation for 12 months, ordered to perform 50 hours of community service, and prohibited from drinking alcohol or taking drugs during the probation period ... but now it's over.

The golf legend was arrested for DUI on May 29, 2017 in Jupiter, FL after cops found him asleep at the wheel of his 2015 Mercedes. Once he awoke, Tiger was a discombobulated mess, which he claimed was the result of taking a cocktail of Rx drugs.

Dash cam footage of his arrest showed Tiger was clearly in no shape to be behind the wheel, and he later went to rehab to get help for his prescription drug issues.

NASCAR CEO Brian France Pleads Not Guilty In Oxy & DWI Case

9/18/2018 8:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France ain't exactly rolling over in his DWI and Oxycodone possession case ... 'cause he pled not guilty to multiple charges in an NY court.

France -- who's currently on a leave of absence from NASCAR -- was arrested August 5 in Sag Harbor, NY.

Cops say they pulled BF over and suspected he was intoxicated ... so they gave him a field sobriety test -- which they say he bombed.

During the stop, police say they also found Oxycodone pain pills.

To make matters worse, we're told France name-dropped President Trump during the arrest ... in an effort to skate on the charges.

France's attorney appeared on his behalf in Sag Harbor Village Court on Friday ... and pled not guilty to misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance, aggravated DWI, and DWI.

He's facing up to a year in jail for each charge.

France is due back in court October 5.

The Weeknd & Daft Punk Sued for Stealing 'Starboy'

9/18/2018 6:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If The Weeknd's huge hit, "Starboy," had a familiar sound, it's not because Daft Punk produced it ... it's because the song is a rip-off ... or so another artist claims in a lawsuit.

A self-described poet, singer and songwriter named Yasminah is suing The Weeknd and his mega-producers, claiming her song "Hooyo" is the blueprint for "Starboy."

In the lawsuit, she says she co-wrote and released "Hooyo" in 2009. "Starboy" was released in Nov. 2016. According to Yasminah, the similarities are obvious to the ear -- same hook, same key, similar tempo and both songs feature prominent claps on beats 2 and 4. Translation:  they both have great rhythm.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, blog posts have been written describing the similarities between the songs ... and there are thousands of comments on those posts agreeing with Yasminah's ear.

Yasminah says 2 of her producers already threatened lawsuits over the song, which never went to court ... they settled -- which kinda makes sense when you listen to both songs. Yasminah says the problem is, she never got a cut of those settlements.

She's now suing Daft Punk and The Weeknd for at least $5 million.

Amber Rose I Think I Know Who Took My Ring ...

9/17/2018 2:26 PM PDT

Amber Rose seems to have a hunch about who might've stolen her engagement ring from Wiz Khalifa, but stops short of naming anyone in particular for one very good reason.

We got Amber Monday heading into LAX and asked if there were any suspects yet in the case of her missing engagement ring. As we first told you, she filed a police report late last week. It doesn't sound like cops have zeroed in on a perp yet, but Amber says she's on the case. 

She hints she's already got a short list of suspects -- but says she's still gathering proof.

It also seems like whoever did it might've been close to Amber, 'cause she says this wasn't a security issue. We know she's already addressed that.

BTW, Amber's got a message for the person or people who have the $150k ring. And, it's pretty damn simple ... 

'The 100' Star Marie Avgeropoulos Charged with Domestic Violence But, BF Wants Charge Dropped

9/17/2018 1:16 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

1:12 PM PT -- There was a hearing in Marie's case Monday where her attorney, Shawn Holley, argued Marie's BF has absolutely no interest in pressing charges. He claims he didn't know calling the cops would result in her arrest because similar situations are handled completely differently in Canada -- where he's from.

As for why things looked so bad ... Marie's BF told cops he had previous wounds from a mountain biking incident, and they were reopened during the altercation, which is why cops found blood, the lawyer said in court. 

As we reported ... Marie was on new meds and mixed it with wine during dinner that evening, and she had a bad reaction. She's no longer taking those pills.   

Marie and her BF still live together in Canada, as they have for the last 3 years. He claims she's never been aggressive or violent, and he doesn't need a protective order because she doesn't pose a threat.

Marie Avgeropoulos -- known for playing a post-apocalyptic juvenile delinquent on CW's hit sci-fi show -- is facing some real-life legal trouble now ... a charge for allegedly attacking her boyfriend.

"The 100" star's been hit with one count of misdemeanor corporal injury to a spouse ... this according to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office. She's set to be arraigned Monday. Avgeropoulos was arrested last month for the incident. 

We broke the story ... Avgeropoulos' boyfriend called police claiming she hit him during a verbal argument. Cops hauled her off to jail after they said they noticed marks on his body.

Marie then took this memorable, teary-eyed mug shot.

Marie and her BF are due in court later this month.

9/17/2018 12:12 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tommie Lee has an orange jumpsuit in her future ... but she'll only have to spend 2 days in jail, instead of the 2 years she was facing, as a result of a plea deal stemming from her 2016 arrest for DUI. 

The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star pled guilty to one count of DUI and one count of driving without headlights and, as part of her sentence, next week she's spending 48 hours in Fulton County Jail.

Tommie also has to complete 40 hours of community service and get an alcohol and drug evaluation treatment. She'll be on probation for 12 months.

We broke the story ... Tommie was busted for drunk driving in January 2016 and cops said she peed herself in the cruiser on the way to the station.   

Elon Musk That 'Pedo' Crack is Gonna Cost You ... Cave Rescuer Sues

9/17/2018 11:03 AM PDT

Elon Musk crossed the line when he called a British diver involved in the Thailand cave rescue a "pedo" ... at least according to the diver, who's now suing the billionaire.

Vernon Unsworth says he was the first foreign diver to arrive in Thailand to help rescue the 12 boys trapped in the cave with their soccer coach. You'll recall Unsworth was critical of Elon's efforts to build a mini-submarine to help with the rescue. Unsworth told CNN, Elon's sub was a "PR stunt" that "had absolutely no chance of working." 

He added Musk "can stick his submarine where it hurts."

Musk fired back at Unsworth on Twitter, saying, "Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it." If you didn't know, Pedo is shorthand for pedophile.

Musk eventually apologized, saying he had reacted in anger. However, Unsworth took note a month later when Musk tweeted, "You don't think it's strange he hasn't sued me?"

Well, here ya go, Elon. Unsworth is suing Elon for defamation, and an undisclosed amount of damages ... i.e. money.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Unsworth denies the "pedo" allegation -- saying he's "not married to a 12-year-old child" ... nor is he a child rapist or child sex trafficker.

Dorial Green-Beckham Pleads Guilty to Drunk Driving

9/17/2018 9:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NFL wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has pled guilty to misdemeanor DWI stemming from a December arrest in Missouri ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The story behind the arrest is crazy ... 

The 25-year-old had gotten a call around 3 AM on Dec. 30 from a friend -- who was being arrested for DWI -- and needed Dorial to come pick him up. 

When the WR arrived to the scene in his white Cadillac Escalade, cops say they noticed Dorial seemed drunk too and administered field sobriety tests ... which he failed. So, Dorial was arrested too. 

Green-Beckham was later charged with misdemeanor Driving While Intoxicated -- and, according to court records, he appeared in court on Monday and pled guilty. 

Sentencing is set for October -- he's facing up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine. 

Dorial Green-Beckham was one of the top high school WRs ever -- but never reached his potential in college or the NFL due to off-the-field issues

He was drafted by the Titans in the 2nd round of the 2015 Draft but didn't last there long. The Eagles picked him up in 2016 and he played 1 season -- racking up 36 catches for 392 yards and 2 TDs. 

The Eagles released him before the 2017 season. 

Amanda Stanton from 'Bachelor' Hits Beach with BF After Dom. Violence Arrest

9/17/2018 9:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Stanton and her boyfriend put on a united front during a beach outing ... not long after she was arrested for getting into a fight with him.

The 'Bachelor' and "Bachelor in Paradise" fan favorite hit up Laguna Beach Sunday with BF, Bobby Jacobs ... showing plenty of PDA. It's the first time we've seen them out together since Amanda's arrest last week in Vegas after a drunken post-bachelorette party incident with Bobby.

As we first reported ... security at the Encore was responding to a noise complaint when an apparently boozed-up Amanda tried to intervene, shoving Bobby in the process. We're told that was enough for security to call cops, who arrested Amanda for misdemeanor domestic battery.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Bobby also claims Amanda started to hit him while he was in bed, argued for hours and at one point took the room's phone and swung it at him. Bobby also says Amanda tried kicking him and he tried pinning her down but he says she kept scratching and pinching his arms and body. Amanda had apparently been upset with Bobby 'cause he wasn't answering her calls.

A rep for Amanda told us it was all a misunderstanding ... calling the shove "playful."

No word if Amanda shoved Bobby into the Pacific but they definitely looked playful ... and unconcerned about her arrest.
