Tyga

Seals Deal with Drake's Ex

With Handfuls of Her Ass

11/14/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1113_Tyga-and-Dollicia-Bryan3Tyga just upped the ante in his pissing match with Drake ... by grabbing a giant handful of his ex-chick's ass and signing her to co-star in a new music video.

Sources involved in the deal tell TMZ ... Tyga asked Dollicia Bryan to be in his "Make It Workvideo specifically because the song includes lyrical jabs at Drake, like -- "Ni**a never was my homey ... all these bitches know you corny ni**a."

Drake's been flirting with Tyga's baby mama Blac Chyna on social media for weeks now -- so, not shocking that Tyga bagged Dollica.

In fact, we're told Tyga flat out told Dollicia he was using her to piss off Drake ... and she jumped at the opportunity.

Exes be trippin'.

But Not On My Tour Bus

Ty Dolla Sign Weed Tour Bus
Rapper Ty Dolla $ign got popped for marijuana when Wisconsin police busted his tour bus -- but that's news to him ... since Ty insists he wasn't even on the bus.

According to Blue Mounds police chief Andrew Rose ... Ty's bus slowed down early Wednesday morning for equipment failure. Cops pulled over the bus to make sure everything was cool ... but officers say they were quickly blown away by the smell of pot.

Cops say they found about an ounce and a half of weed, and cited 7 people -- including Ty -- for possession and/or paraphernalia. But a rep claims Ty was on a plane to Omaha at that time, so there's no way he got a citation.

All cops know is ... they're expecting someone who goes by Ty Dolla $ign to pay the ticket -- which should be less than $500.

Mark Cuban wrapped up his jury duty by reaching a verdict in the one day trial ... and then shouting out his fellow jurors on Instagram.

As we told you ... Cuban was selected for a Dallas jury in a civil lawsuit over a car accident -- and amazingly, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks tells TMZ Sports he did NOT have a ton of influence over his fellow jurors.

Mark says they wanted him to be the foreman, but he turned it down. Ultimately, the jury ruled in favor of the defendant -- saying he was NOT negligent.

As soon as the trial was over ... Mark posted what looks like a pic of the jurors deliberating, with the caption -- "Verdict reached and we are dismissed. World's best jury :)" Important to note he didn't post the pic until AFTER the trial. Doing it before would've been a major no-no.

He called in to TMZ Hollywood Sports right after court. Make sure you check it out on Reelz at 8 PM ET ... 5 PM PT!

The Situation Moving

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's gonna need a new place to GTL -- fast ... he's hightailing it out of his NJ house ... ending his war with the landlord.

As we first reported ... Sorrentino's landlord, Pat Giganti, took Sitch to court ... to try and force him out of a $700K rental home in Manchester, NJ. Giganti claims Situation is a lousy tenant who's trashed 2 different homes.

Both sides were in court Monday, but the case was dismissed because Sitch was up to date on his rent. Rather than continuing to fight Giganti though ... Situation's decided to get the hell outta Dodge. We're told he'll be moving out within 2 days, and moving trucks are already at the house.

As for any alleged damages -- Giganti tells us he will have to file separate lawsuits to collect any $$$.
Situation is also threatening a lawsuit ... if Giganti doesn't give him back his security deposit.
