Kendall Jenner My Alleged Stalker Will Go Free ... But I'm Still OK

10/25/2016 9:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1025-kendall-jenner-tmz-02Kendall Jenner's feeling pretty safe ... despite the fact her alleged stalker skated on the charge.

Shavaughn McKenzie was found not guilty of stalking Monday but guilty of trespassing. TMZ broke the story ... McKenzie was arrested at Kendall's home after following her up the driveway, and it wasn't his first time tailing her.

Kendall's lawyer, Shawn Holley, tells us her client has as much protection as possible ... Holley went to court recently and got a 5 year restraining order and the judge said she could come back and have it extended for another 5 years. So if he crosses the line, he'll be arrested pronto.

McKenzie is still in jail, where he'll sit until his release on November 10th. Law enforcement sources say he has mental issues and his mother plans to take him back home to Virginia.

We're also told cops will patrol Kendall's home and monitor Shavaughn's whereabouts ... if he stays in town.

Short story ... Kendall's protected as much as possible, but it's still pretty scary being a celeb.

Shavaughn McKenzie's verdict just came in ... and the partial verdict is troublesome to the famous Kardashian.

Here's the problem ... McKenzie will almost certainly get probation for trespassing ... the less serious of the 2 charges. And, he seems obsessed with Kendall.

Kendall has described the August incident with McKenzie as petrifying, saying ... "I've never been so scared in my life." We also reported she hasn't felt safe in her own home since, and was even staying with neighbors.

10/24/2016 4:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0411-montee-ball-mug-shot-03Ex-NFL running back Montee Ball has plead guilty to charges stemming from an April incident in which he got boozed up at a Wisconsin bar and then resisted arrest when cops tried to take him into custody.

Remember, Ball was out on bail back in April from his domestic violence case (he attacked an ex-GF in 2014) and one of the terms was to NOT booze or be in a place where they serve booze. 

When cops found him at the 841 Brewhouse bar on April 9th -- they tried to take him into custody and he resisted

Now, we've learned Ball struck a deal with prosecutors in which he plead guilty to 2 counts of "bail jumping" and one count of resisting arrest ... all misdemeanors.

So, what does it mean for Ball? He could face up to 9 months in jail for each count -- sentencing is scheduled for December. 

By the way, 25-year-old Ball -- the Broncos 2nd round pick in 2013 -- is still in custody in Wisconsin after being convicted in TWO domestic violence cases

Donald Trump My Porn Star Accuser? 'Sure She's Never Been Grabbed'

10/24/2016 1:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Donald Trump says his latest accuser is no saint ... and he sounds certain she's been grabbed plenty of times in her line of work. 

The Donald went on WGIR radio's "New Hampshire Today" and sarcastically said he was sure porn star Jessica Drake has "never been grabbed before." Drake claims Trump grabbed her, kissed her and solicited her for sex in 2006. 

Trump says her claims and the allegations of the other accusers are BS.

Drake launched an online sex shop just before going public with her allegations -- but her lawyer, Gloria Allred, says the timing was a coincidence.

Suge Knight Sues Dr. Dre He Hired a Hitman to Kill Me

10/24/2016 10:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1024-suge-knight-dr-dre-tmz-02Dr. Dre hired a hitman to off Suge Knight, and it's all over Beats By Dre ... so claims Suge in a new lawsuit.

Suge says he had a lifetime management deal with Dre, which entitled him to a 30% cut of Dre's entertainment earnings. When Beats came along, Suge alleges Dre tried to cut him out, in part because Apple -- which bought Beats from Dre -- didn't want its brand associated with Suge.

Dre's solution, according to the lawsuit, was to hire a hitman to kill Suge at 1 OAK during the 2014 VMAs weekend. Suge was shot 7 times in the abdomen but recovered.

The suit claims the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. questioned a man named T-Money about the shooting, and he told investigators he was paid by Dre to kill Suge. Suge says, despite 37 cameras in 1 OAK, no arrests were made.

Fast-forward to January, 2015, when Suge drove to Tam's Burgers in Compton. The suit claims Dre and Universal -- which produced "Straight Outta Compton" -- paid Cle "Bone" Sloan $300,000, insinuating he would take care of the Suge problem.

As we first reported, Suge struck Sloan with his truck, seriously injuring him. Suge also ran over Terry Carter and killed him, but Suge says it was an accident and he was trying to escape an ambush.

Suge is suing Dre, Apple, Universal and Tam's for unspecified damages. Among his damages -- 30% of Dre's take from the Beats sale. Dre got $1 billion, so Suge wants around $300 million.

update_graphic_red_bar12:30 PM PT -- A lawyer for Dr. Dre tells us, "Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge's lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance."

Tom Brady Wusses Out On Josh Brown Suspension ... Won't Compare to Deflategate

10/24/2016 9:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Tom Brady was asked straight-up if he thought it was unfair that the NFL only suspended Josh Brown for 1 game for domestic violence ... when he was suspended FOUR for Deflategate.

His answer ... flaccid.

"I think it is the league’s issue,” Brady said while calling in to the Kirk and Callahan radio show Monday morning.

"Obviously, there is a lot of controversy with that. I’m trying to stay out of all that. I will let them handle it. I think that is their responsibility. I certainly don’t condone any part of domestic violence. I think it is a terrible, terrible thing. I think the league, they have to handle those types of things."

He added, "I’m just going to stay in my lane. Like I said, it’s up to them to decide whatever they want to do. I’m just going to try try and stay out of any kind of my opinion. I certainly have opinions, I just don’t really care to share them."

Brady did lash out on the general topic of domestic violence -- saying, of course, he does not condone it. 

"Any type of abuse or bullying of people who can’t defend or fight for themselves, I have no respect for that."

"I was very fortunate to grow up with sisters, a mother -- I condone no part of that. That is absolutely something I would never be a part of or do. It’s a terrible tragedy.”

Breaking News

1020_ben-mcadoo_josh_brown_gettyNY Giants head coach Ben McAdoo says the organization will NOT cut ties with Josh Brown -- despite disturbing new details in his domestic violence case.

"We’re not going to turn our back on Josh," McAdoo said ... "He’s a teammate and a guy we’re hoping makes strides."

McAdoo says he's had a "tough conversation" with Brown -- but wouldn't reveal the details. 

When asked if he felt Brown misled him about incidents in the past, McAdoo said, "My conversations one-on-one with Josh, I want to leave those personal. He’s working towards improving himself."

McAdoo says the Giants front office is still reviewing all of the new information -- which includes Brown admitting he abused his ex-wife.

He was also asked about an alleged domestic incident involving his ex-wife at the 2016 Pro Bowl -- and if it concerned him.

"Everything is concerning. We’re working to piece together all the pieces that we can to make a well informed decision."

Brown was pulled off the team trip to London for the game this weekend -- but he's currently still a member of the team.

Kim Kardashian Apologize, Or I'll Sue You For Calling My Robbery Fake

10/21/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-kim-kardashian-huff-post-tmz-02Kim Kardashian's preparing to drop the legal hammer on a writer who published a story claiming the Paris robbery was a total sham ... purely cooked up for publicity.

The letter demands Sharika Soal -- a contributor to The Huffington Post -- publish a retraction and an apology for her Oct. 8th post which quoted Kim as saying her ordeal was a "publicity stunt gone horribly wrong."

Kim says that quote is a fabrication, and her lawyers point out that quote was actually pulled from a satirical website -- a clear shot at Soal's journalistic skills.

Soal tells TMZ it's impossible for her to give Kim what she wants because HuffPo has blocked her out of her account, so she can't post the retraction. She says she's explained her dilemma to Kim's lawyers.


We've reached out HuffPo reps, who say Kim's beef is with Soal and not them. They also say they pulled the story -- which was self-published by Soal -- when editors saw it violated terms.

Sharika added ... she's got nothing and if Kim sues, that's all she'll get.
