XXXTentacion was shot in the neck during an alleged robbery ... and, according to one person on the scene, it appeared he died instantly. 

TMZ broke the story, XXX was murdered Monday in South Florida when two armed men approached his car and shot the rapper. An eyewitness tells us a bullet struck XXX in the neck -- and he went immediately limp -- losing all signs of life, including pulse.

The police dispatch also revealed just how dire XXX's situation was ... classifying him as a level 1 trauma patient and describing his state as "comatose." The eyewitness says it was clear to him ... XXX had passed.

The dispatch revealed the alleged shooters made off in a black Dodge Journey.

A statement from the Broward County Sheriff's Office classified the incident as a likely robbery -- XXX's Louis Vuitton bag was stolen -- but, so far, no one has been arrested.

Meek Mill Judge & Lawyers Bicker Over Snicker

Exclusive Details

Meek Mill's lawyers got into a contentious exchange with Judge Genece Brinkley after they claimed she straight-up LOL'd in open court.

As we reported ... Meek marched into court Monday for a hearing to decide if he'll get a new trial. But his team left bewildered at Brinkley's demeanor ... describing it as "an asylum." TMZ's now obtained a transcript of the exchange and the conflict stems mostly from Meek's side insisting Brinkley ridiculed a witness.

According to the docs ... Meek's lawyers, Joe TacopinaBrian McMonagle and Peter Goldberg believe Brinkley laughed while one of their key witnesses, Bradley Bridge, was on the stand. Bridge is a public defender who's worked on more than 1,000 cases similar to Meek's.

The exchange went down like this after McMonagle brought up the issue:

Judge: Do you believe I have been ridiculing you?

Bridge: There were a couple moments where I sensed that was true.

Judge: And that I was laughing at you? He used the word laughing.

McMonagle: You did laugh.

Judge: No, I wasn't laughing at him.

Goldberg: Your honor, I heard you laughing at him.

Judge: Excuse me?

McMonagle: All three lawyers heard you laugh.

Judge: Do you believe that I was laughing at you in the course of this serious case?

Bridge: I wouldn't call it a laugh. I would call it a smirk.

The hearing continued but, before it came to a close, Goldberg brought the issue up again ... for the record.

Judge: OK. I can appreciate that you're saying I laughed out loud, but I did not laugh out loud. I might have had a smile on my face, but I didn't laugh out loud.

Laugh, smile, smirk, snicker ... whatever it was, Judge Brinkley did not immediately rule on Meek's motion for a new trial. Soooo ... the last laugh is TBD.

Jesse Williams Divorce Got Doubly Expensive $100,000 a Month in Child and Spousal Support

Exclusive Details

Jesse Williams' divorce just got WAY more expensive, because a judge has just doubled his monthly nut.

Jesse has been ordered to pay $50,000 a month in child support to estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee.  He had previously been ordered to pay over $50k a month in spousal ... that was upped from $33k.

Jesse and Aryn have 2 kids, and the boom was inevitably going to be lowered on Jesse in the child support department. His lawyers had argued the $50,000 a month in spousal support should cover child support expenses, but that's not the law. Courts separate child from spousal support.

According to court docs, Jesse pulls in $521,000 a month.

The support orders are temporary until the couple either reaches a final settlement or the court imposes a final order.

Daily Mail first reported the change in child support.

Exclusive Details

The son of Dallas Cowboys legend Erik Williams has been arrested in connection with a double murder in Texas, TMZ Sports has learned. 

20-year-old Cassius Shakembe Williams -- along with another man -- have been arrested and each charged with 2 counts of capital murder in the shooting deaths of 2 men in Mesquite, TX on June 12. 

Officials believe the victims were attempting to sell marijuana to Williams and his friend, when the buyers pulled out guns and demanded they hand over the weed. 

Shots were fired and the two alleged dealers were killed. 

Capital murder is essentially the same as 1st degree murder -- and if convicted, it carries the death penalty. 

Williams is a former football player himself -- who was a 6'1", 290 lb defensive tackle at Central State University. 

His father, Erik Williams, was a 2-time Super Bowl champ with the Dallas Cowboys -- where he was also a 4-time Pro Bowler as an offensive lineman.

Oscar De La Hoya says he was so serious about saving the GGG vs. Canelo rematch, he shelled out millions of dollars of his own money to get the deal done. 

Remember, Oscar -- Canelo's promoter -- previously said Gennady Golovkin wanted a 50/50 revenue split with Canelo or he would NOT accept the fight. 

Oscar came on the "TMZ Sports" TV show and we asked what it finally took to get the deal done -- and the Golden Boy told us it came down to writing a big, fat check. 

"I actually came out with my own money to bridge the gap and make this fight happen," Oscar says. 

"GGG wanted a bigger piece of the pie. It was a matter of a few million dollars. I couldn't get it from Canelo's side because he was gonna stick to his guns ... so I had to come up with the difference."

Good thing he's rich.

Tekashi69 is adding more fuel to the fire in his war with fellow rapper Chief Keef, this time by taking Keef's baby mama, Slim Danger, out on a $75k shopping spree at Gucci for her birthday.

Tekashi posted a clip at the Gucci store in NYC with stacks in his hand and Slim, who calls out Keef as a deadbeat dad in the clip. "If you don't know how to take care of your girl, n***as gonna take care of her for you," 6ix9ine chimes in. He later copped a feel too.

We're told the two happened to run into one another while Slim was in town to celebrate her bday. She's cool with Tekashi's Tr3way family, so Tekashi took her shopping to celebrate.

Slim made off with a fanny pack, sunglasses, wallet, and a dress ... totaling more than $75k. Unclear if she got to keep the giant 69 chain around her neck. 

As we previously reported ... the two rappers have ongoing beef that's been going back and forth on social media, and doesn't look like Tekashi's squashing it anytime soon.

Lenny Dykstra Uber Driver In Trouble with Cops ... Over Ride with MLB Star

Exclusive Details

Lenny Dykstra claims he was essentially kidnapped by an erratic Uber driver -- and now, we've learned the driver's been hit with a criminal charge.   

The night in question (May 23) is the same evening Dykstra was arrested in NJ for allegedly threatening to shoot the driver when cops say they also found Dykstra in possession of weed, cocaine and ecstasy. 

The driver had claimed Lenny asked to change destinations in the middle of the ride and when the driver refused, Lenny flipped out and threatened to shoot him. 

But, Dykstra says that's B.S. -- admitting he did ask to change locations, but it was the DRIVER who flipped out ... locking the doors and driving 100 mph in the wrong direction. 

Dykstra says the driver eventually pulled up in front of a police station -- where Lenny claims the driver lied to cops about what really happened. 

Cops investigated and according to court documents, the driver has been hit with 1 count of false imprisonment. 

Lenny says he was afraid for his life and called 911 several times from the back seat. Lenny says when the driver realized he was talking with police, the driver freaked out even more. 

Dykstra's charges have not been dropped -- but now, it seems both the driver and the passenger could go down together in what may be considered as one of the most bizarre Uber rides ever. 

8:40AM PT  -- Dykstra and his attorney Matthew Blit held a news conference this morning in NYC .. where they described the incident. Lenny says he was kidnapped by the driver and was in fear for his life.

"I literally thought this guy was going to kill me."
