Jessica Simpson Lawsuit

Papa Joe Sues ...

This Guy Is Extorting My Family!

8/12/2015 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0812-jessica-simpson-joe-simpson-tmz-01Joe Simpson claims the guy suing him, Jessica and family for $12 million is simply trying to extort the Simpson family over a supposed deal that never came to fruition. 

In the lawsuit -- filed in New York -- Papa Joe does say he was working with Jeffrey Bowler in 2010, but says that deal "died on the vine" way back when and has nothing to do with the mega deal that came five years later. 

Furthermore, Joe says the deal he was working on with Bowler was to license her makeup line only ... and had nothing to do with selling the entire product line. 

Simpson claims Bowler essentially extorted him when he sent him a letter demanding his 10% of the $120 million sale of The Jessica Simpson Collection.

Meade County Sheriff, Ron Merwin, tells TMZ ... the pathologist who performed the autopsy observed scar tissue on Lara's heart, which is consistent with the effects of a heart attack.

Merwin says they'll know for sure when the toxicology report comes back, but there were no signs drugs or alcohol played a role. We're told Lara's body is being transferred back to his hometown in Alaska.

No arrest. No citation.

Meek Mill

I Wasn't Lyin'

Drake Really Did Get Peed On!

7/31/2015 8:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0731-animation-drake-pee-getty-01

update_graphic_red_bar1:30 PM PST -- Sources close to both T.I. and Drake say the culprit was a heavily intoxicated friend of T.I.'s who peed himself. The pee unintentionally got on Drake's shoe and that's when he got pissed.

update_grey_gray_barMeek Mill's random line at the end of his Drake diss song -- that Drake once got PEED ON -- is true.

The lyric in question came at the very end of "Wanna Know," where Meek said, "You let Tip homie piss on you in a movie theater n****, we ain’t forget."

Our sources say, it all went down in 2010, during a private screening of "Takers" on the Sony lot ... a movie in which Matt Dillon, Paul Walker, Chris Brown and T.I. all starred in.

Drake attended the screening and, 30 minutes in, jumped up screaming and ran out of the theater.

We're told a dispute erupted over who was sitting where ... apparently Drake and one of T.I.'s childhood friends got into it. The friend got pissed, and pissed on Drake.

We're told Drake ran out of the theater, screaming "motherf*****."

And sources told us the obvious ... intoxicants were involved.

UFC's Jon Jones

Mentoring Kids at Boys & Girls Club

'Getting Life Back On Track'

Exclusive Details

0730-john-jones-twitter-01Jon Jones is taking Dana White's advice to heart -- cleaning himself up and working with the community to get his life back on track ... and today, he mentored kids at a Boys & Girls Club. 

The former UFC champ hit up the B&GC in Albuquerque, New Mexico -- where he talked to the kids about the importance of working hard to make their dreams come true. 

But the best part -- one of the kids challenged Jon to play the UFC video game on Playstation ... AND CRUSHED JONES (who was playing as himself). 

Sources close to Jones tell us ... Jon has been working hard to get his life back in order ever since his hit and run arrest --  doing volunteer community service and spending lots of time in the gym. 

As for resuming his MMA career, we're told "nothing's out of the question" -- but he's been focusing a lot of his time on mentoring and coaching other fighters.  

Jones is still suspended from the UFC -- but check out this recent video of Dana White (below) ... it's clear he's still a fan of the guy and if he keeps up the good work, we're guessing we haven't seen the last of him in the octagon.

I Used Airbnb ...

For My Sick Malibu Rental

Exclusive Details

0730_mariah_carey_pad_main_launchMariah Carey has proven Airbnb isn’t just for 20-year-old hipsters traveling on the cheap, but not every traveler on the Internet lodging site can afford a $10,000/night house in Malibu.

We're told Mimi used the site to rent out an awesome seaside home on Carbon Beach from movie producer Michael Lambert while she’s back in the L.A. area.

The 3,764 sq. ft. digs includes 4 beds and 4 baths, a master suite that spans the entire second floor, and a detached guest house.

Mariah will no doubt use the beach house to catch some rays until she heads out to the Holy Land for her Tel Aviv concert in August.

As for the future, at least from Kris' side ... she's hopeful this is a fresh beginning.

TMZ Sports has learned ... Melo's son Kiyan is a member of the New York Gauchos -- which competed at the elite AAU Nationals this weekend in Orlando. 

We spoke with NYG's basketball director, Maxwell Cole, who told us the team is so good, they're competing against bigger and older kids and WINNING!  

0728-subasset-carmelo-son-instagramIn fact, Cole says the Gauchos finished 9th overall -- impressive considering how many 3rd grade AAU teams there are in the country!!!  

As for Kiyan, Maxwell tells us he's great -- and seems to be getting better every day. 

"He knows the game. You can tell the influence his dad has on him. You know he comes from a basketball family."

Both Melo and LaLa were in the stands cheering on their son (who wears #7 like his dad) ... and we're told Shaquille O'Neal also stopped by to support the kids!

XXX Star

Wild Ride in Airliner Cockpit

7/26/2015 1:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

A former Playboy model who used to strip on webcam claims she was invited into the cockpit of a jumbo jet filled with passengers and cavorted with the pilot for hours.

Chloe Khan, whose stage name is Chloe Mafia, says it happened 2 years ago but no one knew about it until now.  She tells us she was about to board an international commercial flight from London to JFK when the pilot spotted her and "gave me the eye."  

Chloe claims she was sitting in her seat with her friend, and after the plane reached cruising altitude a flight attendant came up to them and said the pilot wanted to see them in the cockpit.  She says she brushed it off and stayed in her seat, but 10 minutes later one of the pilots came out and personally invited her and her friend in the cockpit.

Chloe says she was in the cockpit with her friend for hours.  She says one of the pilots said if anyone complained about their presence it was tough luck because they make the rules.

She says one of the pilots said he met his wife by inviting her into the cockpit and they've been married for 20 years.

As crazy as the story sounds, there's video.  

We tried contacting the airline ... so far no word back.
