West donated $150,000 to Roberson's family Friday, the goal originally placed on a GoFundMe account for Roberson's family was $10,000.

Reports say Roberson returned fire, subdued the gunman and held him at gunpoint until police arrived ... but when the police officer got to the scene, he shot Roberson, killing him.

Kanye has spent a lot of time in Chicago over the last few months.

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber just settled a lawsuit that lasted nearly 5 years ... and there ain't nothing over easy about this one.

TMZ has learned the never-ending saga that began in January 2014 when Justin and his buddies hurled eggs at the house owned by warring neighbor Jeffrey Schwartz has finally settled.

TMZ broke a bunch of these stories ... Justin was charged with criminal vandalism and ultimately pled no contest to the crime. He was placed on probation and ordered to perform 40 hours of community service. He had to attend anger management classes -- 12 hours of them.

Justin paid Schwartz $80,000 in restitution in the criminal case ... something to do with fancy, expensive Italian plaster.

But, that was just the beginning. Schwartz filed a civil lawsuit for emotional distress, loss of income and various other items that dragged on in the courts forever. There were depositions, threats, more threats, and on and on.

Well, TMZ just got a document in the case that says, "Counsel specially appearing represents the matter has resolved in its entirety."

The terms of the settlement are confidential. We don't know if Bieber paid Schwartz any additional loot.

EXCLUSIVE

It sounds like Beto O'Rourke is noodling a run for The White House in 2020, because the Congressman is not shutting down rumors he may challenge Donald Trump for the Presidency. 

We got Beto Friday strolling around Capitol Hill and asked him straight-up if he's planning to run for Prez in 2020 ... and the rocker-turned-politician left the door wide open. 

Beto is fresh off losing to Sen. Ted Cruz in the midterm election, so he says he hasn't given 2020 a whole bunch of thought ... these days he seems to have daddy duties on the brain.

One thing's for sure ... Beto is glad CNN reporter Jim Acosta got his White House press credentials back, and he's taking a stand against Trump labeling the media as an enemy of the people.

EXCLUSIVE

Fetty Wap thinks artists shouldn't be afraid to work with Tekashi69, despite the bullets that seem to fly wherever he goes ... and, in fact, Fetty's down to collab with him right now. 

We got Fetty Thursday in L.A. and he told us he isn't fazed by the shooting on the set of Tekashi's music vid with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj. Fetty -- who recorded "KEKE" with Tekashi earlier this year -- went on to tell us why artists would be foolish to cut themselves off from 6ix9ine.

TMZ broke the story ... 2 gunmen opened fire last week at the Beverly Hills home where Tekashi was shooting a music vid, halting production and resulting in a huge financial loss for the record label.

Apparently, that's not enough for Fetty to distance himself -- even though Tekashi himself decided it was time to make sweeping changes on his team.

Rodney Peete On Clay Helton He's Done At USC Unless He Beats ND & UCLA

11/16/2018 9:54 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Clay Helton's days as a USC coach are numbered ... UNLESS he beats both UCLA and Notre Dame in the next two weeks -- so says Trojan Rodney Peete.

The former USC superstar tells TMZ Sports he's a fan of Clay and likes him personally ... but with the way SC's looked this season -- Peete says the dude is about to get fired.

"I think that over time, it's shown that we've kind of fallen off a little bit," Peete says.

The ex-QB ain't lying ... the Trojans won the Pac-12 the last two years -- but are just 5-5 this year and are in danger of missin' out on a bowl game completely this season.

Peete says it's gotten so bad, SC is probably gonna axe Clay ... unless he can come up with wins against the Trojans' biggest rivals these next two weekends.

"I think he's gotta win the next two games for sure to have even a shot to keep it."

It won't be easy ... the Bruins have been trash this year -- but the game IS arguably the sport's biggest rivalry. Plus ... the Golden Domers are ranked No. 3 in the country right now.

If Clay can't get it done ... Rodney tells us SC doesn't have to go out and get Nick Saban or Urban Meyer to turn things around -- and ya gotta hear why.

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, move over.... there's a new superfight on the way.

The matchup? Cris Cyborg -- arguably the greatest female UFC fighter ever -- against Cecilia Braekhus -- arguably the greatest female boxer ever.

If you like combat sports, you're well aware Cyborg's a badass ... but so is Braekhus. She's undefeated at 34-0 and has been the undisputed welterweight champ since 2014.

"[Cyborg's] very interested in doing a boxing match. We want to do the female version of a Mayweather-McGregor."

Braekhus says this ain't a pie-in-the-sky pipe dream.

"It's gonna happen."

But, does Cris have any chance to beat a champion boxer?

Braekhus' answer might surprise you.

Diddy Unbreakable Bond with Kim Porter

11/16/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Diddy is destroyed over the death of his ex, Kim Porter ... because even though they broke up years ago they were still a very tight family. 

Sources close to Diddy say he never stopped interacting with Kim, despite breaking up way back in 2007. We're told their connection went beyond the fact they were co-parenting 3 kids ... they genuinely had love and affection for each other. 

They celebrated holidays as a family, vacationed together and just hung out ... and there was never an extended period where they were at odds with each other.

 

Perhaps the most telling example of their ongoing union ... they never had a formal custody agreement. They accommodated each other's schedules when it came to the kids -- and it always worked.  

TMZ broke the story ... Porter was found dead at her Toluca Lake home Thursday, and the emergency dispatch revealed a call came in for a patient in cardiac arrest. A source told us Porter was recently sick with pneumonia.

She leaves behind their 20-year-old son, Christian, and twin, 11-year-old daughters Jessie James and D'Lila ... as well as 27-year-old Quincy whose dad is Al B. Sure!

Porter was 47 years old. 

Matt Damon Shows Love To Mookie Betts ... MVP Well Deserved!

11/16/2018 7:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sorry, Mike Trout ... Matt Damon says voters got it right -- Mookie Betts WAS the AL MVP!!!

"That's great," Matt says ... "Good for him. He deserves it!"

Of course ... Mookie went head-to-head with Trout and the Indians' Jose Ramirez for the award -- but dominated the voting thoroughly, winning in a near-unanimous decision.

Damon tells TMZ Sports that's the way it shoulda been ... and he ain't wrong -- Betts batted .346 this season with 32 home runs and 30 stolen bases.

BTW ... it's not like Mookie was in much need of the confidence booster -- dude just won the World Series, had a new baby girl AND nabbed a Silver Slugger Award last week.

Best month ever ... or best month ever?!

Dream's Birthday Party Make a Wish ... And Blow Out the Cockroach!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner's video from Dream's second birthday party proves Auntie Kylie is the hostess with the mostest ... the mostest cockroaches. 

Jenner hosted her niece's 2nd birthday party Wednesday at her Hidden Hills home ... and there was at least one uninvited guest patrolling the sweets table. The 6-legged party guest can be seen scurrying for cover underneath Dream's decked out bday cake.

As for how the critter may have entered the bash -- there are a ton of plants and foliage intertwined with the dessert spread -- so you gotta imagine he hitched a ride inside.

Cockroach guest or not, the party was still clearly a hit for Dream and all her guests with a homemade teepee, fairies and tons of presents.
