Karrueche Tran Snoozes and Loses Against Chris Brown ... For Now

5/23/2017 10:35 AM PDT
Breaking News

Karrueche Tran didn't get what she was gunning for in court Tuesday, because the judge expected flesh and blood to testify against Chris Brown, not a voice over the phone.

TMZ broke the story, Karrueche planned to get on the horn with the judge rather than appear in person, because she's shooting a TV show in New Orleans. She was expected to take the judge through what she claims are a series of death threats and violent encounters at the hands of Chris.

The judge wasn't having it, saying in order to get a permanent restraining order against Brown she had to either appear in person or give 12 days notice before the hearing that she would appear via phone.

The case was continued so Karrueche could file the proper paperwork.

As for Chris, he was also a no-show. His lawyer claims he was never served with legal docs, despite video which seems to show otherwise.


Sinbad 'Pill Cosby' Drink Is the Worst! Drugging Women No Joke

5/23/2017 8:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sinbad thinks a D.C. bar serving a cocktail that mocks the Bill Cosby case is the exact opposite of funny ... in fact, it's just wrong.

We got the comedian Monday at LAX and asked him about the bar -- called Diet Starts Monday -- pouring a "Pill Cosby" ... complete with empty pill capsules.

Sinbad doesn't mince words here -- he says it's not a joke, and his stance has nothing to do with defending Cosby's name.

His point is ... bars should leave the edgy comedy to the pros.

Chris Brown Will Be A No-Show At Karrueche Restraining Order Hearing

5/23/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown's lawyers will have a steep mountain to climb Tuesday when they essentially tell a judge, "Who you gonna believe, us or your lying eyes?"

We're told Chris will not appear in the hearing where Karrueche is gunning for a permanent restraining order against Brown, whom she claims has threatened to shoot and kill her, in addition to brutalizing her on several occasions.

Karrueche got a TRO, which is about to expire, and she was required to serve Chris with the petition for a permanent order ... something he dodged until a process server handed him the papers earlier this month as he was leaving his birthday party in Houston.

Big problem for Chris ... the service is on video, and the judge will see it in the courtroom.

We're also told Karrueche will not appear in person ... she'll testify on the phone, because she's shooting a TV show in New Orleans.

5/23/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Moby's weekend took a turn for the worse when his obsessed fan -- who's already been ordered to stay the hell away from him -- allegedly showed up at his home.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Moby was home Saturday around 11 AM when security reviewed surveillance video and spotted Kelly Lord outside his Hollywood Hills crib. She's the woman against whom Moby has a restraining order, after causing a bizarre scene in December -- asking about condoms and killing spiders in his bushes.

We're told she didn't get on the property this time around but she violated the stay away order nonetheless. Cops were called but security says Kelly skedaddled before they showed up.

Moby's had a hard time shaking off Kelly, to say the least. As we reported ... She also was arrested for petty theft after stealing his mail.

Future Lawsuit Rocko Claims Stonewalling I Want the Mask Off His Pay Stubs!

EXCLUSIVE

Tracking down Future's money is like trying to find a "magician in a room of smoke and mirrors" ... so claims Rocko, who wants a judge to help him secure the rapper's financials.

Rocko filed new court docs last week in his lawsuit against Future, asking a judge to force Future's camp to stop stonewalling over his demand for financial records.

Rocko says Future's lawyers at Epic Records have been offering boilerplate answers and legal mumbo jumbo as to why they can't give Rocko the docs. He's says Future's hurting any chance of settlement. Rocko's suit claims he discovered Future, was promised a cut of profits and then was kicked to the curb.

You'll recall ... Rocko also wants a judge to set up a court controlled account to hold cash Future makes from his Nobody Safe Tour that's already underway. 

Rocko's expecting at least $10 mil.

EXCLUSIVE

The guys suing Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Suge Knight and other rappers behind "Ain't No Fun (If The Homies Can't Have None)" are 24 years too late.

A California court dismissed the lawsuit brought by 2 L.A. rappers who claimed Snoop and co. stole the hook to 'Ain't No Fun' way back in the early '90s.

According to court docs, these fellas had 3 years to file a lawsuit ... 3 years from 1993.

We broke the story ... the 2 rappers sued Snoop and his Death Row Records crew last year for using their original hook to the rap hit without living up to their end of the alleged bargain ... getting the dudes a record deal and promoting their careers.

The rappers tried claiming the 3 year period reset every time the song was played ... but a judge wasn't buying what they were selling.

5/22/2017 11:01 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Cris "Cyborg" Justino was cited for battery for punching UFC fighter Angela Magana in the face at a UFC fighter retreat in Las Vegas this weekend ... TMZ Sports has learned.

According to the Las Vegas Metro Police narrative, Magana says Cyborg punched the left side of her face after the two fighters got into a verbal argument. Police say they reviewed surveillance video that showed Cyborg throwing a punch, hitting Magana in the face once.

According to officials, witnesses jumped in and broke up the fight.

Cops say Magana -- a 33 year old UFC strawweight -- transported herself to the hospital and was treated. According to the narrative, a doctor at the hospital diagnosed A.M. with an "acute head injury, cervical strain, and laceration of the lip."

She returned to her hotel room and called cops.

Magana told police the fight sparked over comments that were made on social media.

Since the incident, A.M. has gone on a Twitter rampage against Cyborg ... "I was the victim of roid rage today. Hope it was worth your job. Sue happy lawyers hitting me up left and right now #Cyborg"

Cops say they also spoke with UFC fighter Bec Rawlings ... who verified Angela's story.

Police made contact with Cyborg, but she did not want to give her side of the story. She was cited for battery and will have to appear in court.

Cage Pages obtained video of the incident.

Michael Jackson Estate Hey, Lifetime & Netflix ... Make Your Movies, Just No MJ Tunes

5/22/2017 9:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The new Lifetime and Netflix movies about Michael Jackson and his pet monkey, Bubbles, won't feature any of MJ's music if they know what's good for them.

Sources close to Michael Jackson's estate tell TMZ the new flicks, 'Searching for Neverland' and the recently announced animated feature, "Bubbles," are not authorized -- therefore, they're not allowed to use ANY of Michael's materials ... especially his music.

We're told MJ's estate is holding off on legal action for now, but if they hear anything like, oh let's say "Billie Jean," "Thriller," "Beat It," "Rock with You," "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" or any of his hits ... they'll round up the lawyers.

The reason they're not heading to court now? The estate reps haven't seen the movies. 'Searching for Neverland' drops next week, though, so things could change by Monday.

Here's the real question ... can a movie about Michael Jackson even exist without his music, his videos or his pictures? We think not. Soooo, good luck with that, guys.


Scott Disick Burglary Smells Like Inside Job

5/22/2017 8:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Disick's home was almost certainly broken into by someone who knew him and knew the property ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ -- not that Scott seems the least bit concerned.

Our sources say it appears Sunday's burglary was an inside job, because the crook or crooks knew exactly where the security cameras were before breaking into the house through a backdoor because they moved the cameras so they could enter undetected. After entering, they opened a bunch of drawers.

Cops also believe the burglars knew full well Scott was out of town, appearing at a gig in Vegas for his birthday. It was heavily advertised beforehand.

Scott was back home by Sunday around 9 AM, hanging with friends and rambling incoherently. Seemed like the party was still going from Vegas, and he was NOT sweating the burglary.

The break-in comes almost a year to the day from the time Scott was hit the first time ... someone broke into his home and stole some super expensive watches. Law enforcement tells us Scott believes he knew who did it but didn't want to rat them out.

As for what was taken this time around ... we're told an inventory hasn't been taken yet.

Bill Cosby Trial Begins and Mum's the Word

5/22/2017 6:07 AM PDT

Bill Cosby will know in a matter of weeks if prison is in his future, because his sexual assault criminal trial begins today.

Jury selection begins Monday, where lawyers on both sides will strategize on how to find 12 jurors and 6 alternates who are sympathetic to their sides ... yes, neither side really wants an impartial jury.

Cosby faces up to 10 years behind bars if he's convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University women's basketball director Andrea Constand.

Scores of women have come out of the woodwork, claiming the comedian drugged and/or sexually assaulted them. Prosecutors wanted to call 13 women to testify, trying to prove an MO on Cosby's part. The judge ruled only 1 of the 13 could testify.

As for Cosby, he won't take the stand. He's said he fears he might say something off the cuff that could open a "can of something."
