Faith Evans & Stevie J Married in Vegas!!!

7/18/2018 9:03 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

9:55 AM PT -- It's a wrap ... Faith and Stevie have already done the deed. Multiple sources at the ceremony confirm they tied the knot in their hotel room Tuesday night ... around 10:30 PM.

Pass the champagne!

Faith Evans and Stevie J are THIS close to becoming Mr. and Mrs. Jordan ... TMZ's learned they've applied for a marriage license in Las Vegas. 

According to docs, the singer and producer filed for the license in Clark County on Tuesday. The clock's now running, they have one year to tie the knot. But it seems like they won't need that long -- Stevie tweeted Tuesday, "I love you Faith Renee Jordan," and Faith replied, "I love you back Steven Aaron Jordan."

The couple had broken up last year -- but, you know what they say, break up to make up.

The news comes on the heels of a steamy clip Stevie J posted last week from a music video he and Faith shot for their track, "A Minute." They had also been flirting on Stevie's show, "Leave It to Stevie" ... but this is a big turnaround for him.

TMZ broke the story ... Stevie avoided going to prison for failing to pay child support. He's on the hook for over a million bucks. He also battled a nasty child custody case with his ex, Joseline Hernandez.

This would be Stevie's first marriage and Faith's third -- she was previously married to the Notorious B.I.G. and Todd Russaw, whom she divorced in 2011.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West paid a little extra attention to North on Friday ... but Saint made it clear he was not to be forgotten.

The proud parents went to their 5-year-old daughter's fashion show at a design camp she's been attending with a friend, where the kids get to design their own dresses and clothing. We're told Friday was the big show for the kids to reveal their designs to their moms and dads.

As you can see ... North's is stylin'!

Our sources say Kourtney also came to the show with her kids Mason and Penelope ... we're told Kim and Kanye took the whole crew out to eat at Carasoul after to celebrate. 

It's unclear what caused Saint's display of emotion as the family was leaving the show ... but we're going to guess it must have been the beauty of his big sister's design.

Yeah, that has to be it.

LeSean McCoy Denies Attacking Woman 'Baseless and Offensive Claims'

7/10/2018 9:20 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy says allegations he beat up his ex-GF are "totally baseless and offensive" -- saying he has not spoken to the alleged victim in months.

And TMZ Sports has learned McCoy recently SUED the woman in an effort to kick her out of the home that he owns.  

Photos surfaced early Monday morning showing a bloody Delicia Cordon in what appears to be a hospital bed.

De's friend posted on Instagram pointing the finger squarely at McCoy saying, "THE DEVIL!!! YOU ARE AN ANIMAL!!"

She also claimed he's been using illegal drugs, steroids and viciously beat up his son and their dog.

Now, McCoy has responded on social media -- saying, "For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false."

"Further more, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months."

Officials tell TMZ Sports ... EMTs responded to a home on Delicia's street early Monday morning. There are only 3 houses on her block. They would not reveal details about the situation.

We've learned LeSean and Delicia have had a contentious relationship for a while -- according to docs obtained by TMZ Sports, McCoy went to court in June seeking to get a judge's order forcing to her to move out of a home he owns in Alpharetta, Georgia.

In court docs, McCoy wrote ... "Defendant is ex-girlfriend of owner/plaintiff and refuses to leave."

He also wanted the judge to force Delicia to return all of his items that were in her possession.

In fact, the two sides were scheduled to appear in court on the matter TODAY -- but it might get pushed due to a medical emergency involving a member of her lawyer's family.

According to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Delicia told the court McCoy had discussed marriage with her back on May 28 and gave her a "substantial gift."

She says he then left on May 30 to attend OTAs. She left town the next day for a graduation in Virginia.

The next day, while she was gone, Delicia claims LeSean had some of his friends, family members and other crew remove her furniture and furnishings without her knowledge.

When she saw things going down on a live security cam feed, she immediately called police and they stopped McCoy's people from hauling her stuff away.

In court docs, Delicia says LeSean cut the electricity to her place ... and things have been nasty ever since.

'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee Arrested Again ... For Disorderly Conduct

7/9/2018 10:45 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Tommie Lee must really want a judge to throw her behind bars 'cause she was arrested again.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Tommie was busted early Monday morning in Atlanta outside of the Royal Peacock club after a cop told her to get out of the roadway where he was directing traffic ... and she allegedly ignored his instructions and got belligerent.

The tipping point ... cops say Tommie struck a nearby valet working for the venue in the head, and that's when officers made their move to detain her. We're told the valet didn't want to press charges, but cops arrested Tommie anyway and booked her for disorderly conduct while under the influence. 

It's unclear what cops think she was on, but booze could spell big trouble -- as in, jail time -- for Tommie. Just 2 months ago a judge ordered her to wear an alcohol monitoring device, and stay out of trouble.

She's definitely failed on at least one front.

Spider-Man Co-Creator Steve Ditko Dead at 90

Exclusive Details

The man who helped Stan Lee create 2 legendary Marvel superheroes -- Spider-Man and Doctor Strange -- has died at his home in New York ... TMZ has learned.

Steve Ditko was found unresponsive in his NYC apartment on June 29 when a social worker who hadn't heard from him in a while went to Steve's home to check on him ... according to law enforcement.

The chief medical examiner listed the cause of death as arteriosclerotic and hypertensive cardiovascular disease -- basically, a heart attack brought on by clogged arteries.

Ditko was one of the most acclaimed comic book artists of all time, best known for creating Spider-Man with Lee in 1962, and Doctor Strange a year later. The stories they crafted together inspired the 2016 "Doctor Strange" film starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

While Stan became the face of Marvel and "The Godfather of Comic Books" to the public, Steve remained enigmatic over the years -- refusing to do interviews or make public appearances. He continued to work at a Manhattan studio, though, until at least 2012.

Steve was 90.

Diddy Defends Revolt CEO Amid Racism Allegations

7/3/2018 5:43 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Diddy is standing by the CEO of his Revolt television network, Roma Khanna ... despite claims of racist behavior by a former staffer.

According to a letter sent to the Revolt board by the ex-employee -- who claims to be a "young, educated black woman" -- Khanna has openly admitted black women intimidate her.

The woman also alleges Khanna responded to the idea of Meek Mill speaking about prison reform with a racist comment. She claims Khanna said, "Maybe the conversation isn't about prison reform, maybe it's about how to stay out of jail, black boy."

The letter, obtained by the New York Post, also claims Khanna laid off 30 percent of the Revolt staff for restructuring, and 99 percent of them were African-American.

Diddy tells TMZ ... "This story is inaccurate. We are a Black owned and operated network and we have a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination of any kind. Revolt is led by a woman of color who is expected to uphold the same standards that I hold for all of my companies. After an extensive review led by outside counsel there were no findings of deliberate misconduct. At this time, Roma Khanna will remain as CEO of REVOLT."

He adds ... "Regarding the recent restructure, Revolt’s diversity remains unchanged. We are 67% ethnically diverse, with more than 60% of the senior leadership being women. Any suggestion that any company of mine negatively targets African Americans is absurd and offensive.”

Ryan Lochte Lawyer Rio Case Is 'Absurd and Disgusting'

6/29/2018 10:46 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

With Brazilian officials STILL trying to prosecute Ryan Lochte over the infamous gas station incident during the '16 Olympics in Rio ... his lawyer says the whole thing is "absurd and disgusting."

Prosecutors have gotten the green light to try Lochte for spreading false information to the media about what really went down when Ryan told NBC he and other athletes were robbed at gunpoint.

Officials said Lochte made the story up to cover up what really happened -- security guards confronted the group after they vandalized a gas station

Lochte later said he wasn't lying -- and described it as an "over exaggeration."

A panel of judges had previously ruled that Lochte's actions did not constitute a crime -- but a different court sees it differently and will allow prosecutors to move forward with a case against him. 

We spoke with Lochte's attorney, Jeff Ostrow, who says the whole thing is a joke -- and Lochte "would never be treated this way in this country."

As for the chances of Lochte returning to Brazil to face the charges, Ostrow says they're keeping their options open ... but you gotta think there's no chance in hell Ryan's going back to Brazil.
