Exclusive Details

The Washington Capitals didn't have to go far to get the party started Thursday night ... 'cause the Stanley Cup champs turned all the way up in a Vegas nightclub ... and TMZ Sports has the video. 

Alex Ovechkin and company hit up Hakkasan at the MGM Grand -- where the entire team, coaching staff, management, owners and fans went berserk to celebrate the victory over the Vegas Knights. 

DJ Tiesto was in charge of the music and invited the team over to the VIP area behind the booth to party with the cup. 

We're told team management paid the entire bill for all Caps players -- which ended up around $100,000 ... and that covered all of the champagne, beer and liquor the guys poured into the cup. 

Early Friday morning, President Trump tweeted at the team -- "Congratulations to the Washington Capitals on their GREAT play and winning the Stanley Cup Championship."

"Alex Ovechkin, the team captain, was spectacular - a true Superstar! D.C. is popping, in many ways. What a time!"

Guess they'll get an invite to the White House?

Exclusive Details

12:14 PM PT -- According to the divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the couple will share joint legal custody ... she gets primary physical custody. Melissa will have their son 70% of the time, and Jeremy will have him 30%. Both have waived spousal support. Melissa will keep the house and they both get to keep their vehicles.

As we previously reported, Jeremy's been ordered to pay $1,000 per month in child support. He also owes $12,000 to Melissa's attorney, Lisa Bloom.

The hits keep coming for Jeremy Meeks ... 9 days after his son with Chloe Green was born, he's hammered out his divorce from wife #1, Melissa.

According to docs filed in L.A. County, Jeremy and Melissa are both officially single now. The judge signed off Wednesday, but sources connected to the exes tell us their division of assets -- child support and custody agreement (they have a 9-year-old son) -- is still up in the air.

The divorce news comes just as Jeremy, aka the "Hot Felon," and Chloe announced the birth of their son, Jayden, by posting a pic of him gripping their fingers.

This also means the runway's cleared for them to get married. There are rumors they're already engaged. You've come a looooong way, Jeremy.

Conrad Hilton Sentenced In Car Stealing Case

Exclusive Details

Conrad Hilton was just formally sentenced in his grand theft auto case -- the same one in which he went off on a racist and homophobic rant.

Conrad was in L.A. County Court Wednesday where he pled no contest to 1 count of felony grant theft auto and 1 count of misdemeanor contempt of court. He was sentenced to 3 years probation and was ordered to continue with mental health and substance counseling.

Hilton violated a restraining order last year against E.G. Daily's daughter, after he allegedly stole her dad's car and drove over to her house. That led to a meltdown with cops.

Hilton was also ordered to stay away from Daily and family for the next 3 years.

As we reported ... Conrad was caught on camera in an incredibly racist and homophobic tirade against cops who arrested him at E.G.'s pad last spring. He screamed homophobic epithets, rape ... and the n-word. It was clear he wasn't well during this time.

You'll recall ... Conrad had initially pled not guilty in his criminal case, but had secured some much-needed professional help.

Kevin Garnett's younger sister is in serious trouble after cops say she tried to rob THREE check cashing stores in South Carolina ... while making bomb threats. 

It all started on Monday ... cops say Ashley Danyelle Phelps tried to rob a Check Into Cash in Greenville -- and told employees she had a bomb. Someone pressed a panic button and Phelps fled without any loot. 

The next day, cops say Phelps tried to hit another Check Into Cash store -- but failed so she went to an Advance America shop instead and once again told employees she had a bomb. 

Police responded and 37-year-old Phelps was captured a short time later.

She was formally charged with 2 counts of armed robbery, 2 counts of making a bomb threat and 1 count of attempted armed robbery.

She's currently being held in Greenville County Detention Center after a judge denied her bond.

A family source tells us KG and Ashley used to be close ... but they had a falling out and no longer speak.

Nick Young is preppin' for Game 3 of the NBA Finals in the most Swaggy P way possible ... by getting a brand new Cupid tattoo on his neck!!

Swaggy went with an image of Cupid on the right side of his neck ... adding to his ever-growing collection of body art. 

Swaggy and Warriors take the court against the Cavs on Wednesday night -- less than 24 hours after Nick got his work done.

Think a fresh neck tattoo can have an effect on his game? 

Oprah Buys Huge Island Estate In the Great Northwest

Exclusive Details

Oprah Winfrey is now a Pacific Northwest land owner, but you'll have to take a ferry to find her new crib ... and she dropped major coin to keep it that way.

O just bought a sprawling 43-acre estate on Orcas Island tucked away in an inlet, north of Seattle. The property she purchased is known as Madroneagle, and she spent $8.275 million to have it all to herself.

The estate comes with a main house, a guest house, a gazebo with glass walls, a barn and workshop, a sauna and a craft shed. The main house is 3 stories with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The guest house is also a 4 bed, 3 bath, but significantly smaller in square footage.

Sources close to the deal tell us Oprah never set foot on the island to see the new pad in person. She clearly read enough to pull the trigger, though. We don't know if she's planning to actually live there part-time, but it looks like she should!

Fun fact: The island is known as a hot spot for whale watching. It's in the name, after all.

Lil Scrappy was hospitalized this weekend after being found nearly unconscious and seriously jacked up following a horrific car accident he was involved in ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the 'Love & Hip Hop' star tell us Scrappy was cruising along early Sunday morning with a friend as they were leaving the King of Diamonds strip club in Miami. We're told Scrappy believes his buddy fell asleep at the wheel, however cops list Scrappy as the driver in the crash. Either way ... they slammed into a pole, totaling the car.

According to the traffic crash report -- obtained by TMZ -- Scrappy and his pal, Ca$ino Roulette, were found outside of the car and on the ground when authorities arrived. Neither could coherently explain what had happened. The report also notes there were no witnesses ... and no citations issued. Cops say the car was probably driving too fast for the conditions.

Scrappy eventually came to at a hospital, but sources say he doesn't remember who found him or how he got there. We're told he is seriously injured, with a broken foot that needs to be operated on. We're told his friend, Ca$ino, is in ICU ... Scrappy is not. 

Scrappy's famous mother, Momma Dee, and his wife, Bambi, are currently at his bedside as he recovers.

After the accident, Scrappy took to social media, saying, "@casinoroulette in here hurt too we f***ed up but God saved our lives #Godisgreat #Mercy #Grace."

Sources say cops told the 2 parties -- Janet and Wissam, in this case -- to handle the matter civilly. It's unclear if Janet was on the scene or not, though. 

According to ET, which first reported the incident ... Janet was supposedly tipped off to some alleged aggressive behavior displayed by Wissam, which concerned a nanny enough to alert Janet.

Exclusive Details

Nick Diaz isn't letting his domestic violence case get in the way of meeting new women -- the UFC star was out in Vegas this weekend getting hot and heavy with a new lady ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Diaz hit up XS Nightclub at the Encore Hotel on Saturday night -- where our sources spotted Nick kissing a new mystery lady right in front of everybody!!

Unclear if they're dating or if they were just having a fun night.

We're told this is NOT the woman who accused Diaz of domestic violence. 

As we previously reported, Diaz was arrested a few weeks ago after another woman -- who told police she had been in a sexual relationship with Diaz for years -- claimed Diaz attacked and choked her at a Vegas home. 

Diaz has not issued a statement about the arrest -- but multiple people in his camp have said the allegations are B.S.

J Prince to Drake Stand Down on Pusha T ... 'Can't Get in the Pig Pen'

6/3/2018 5:13 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

James Prince says Drake will not be responding to Pusha T's vicious diss track under his orders ... because going that low is beneath the young MC.

The Rap-A-Lot Records CEO spoke with radio personalities Fadam Got da Juice and DJ Reddz of DTLR Radio Saturday, and told them he issued the directive to Drake that AM -- stand down, and don't respond to "The Story of Adidon," as many anticipated he would.

He goes on to say that what Push engaged in was equivalent to a "pig pen mentality" and incredibly disrespectful for going after going after Drake's mom, dad, and his OVO producer with MS, Noah '40' Shebib. J Prince doesn't directly address Drake's alleged son with porn star Sophie Brussaux ... but you gotta imagine he means that, too. Speaking of taking the high road, Prince was on air promoting his new book, "The Art and Science of Respect."

Here's another thing ... sources connected to Drake tell us he had already recorded a diss track responding to Push's 'Adidon,' prior to James' phone call Saturday morning. 

Seems J Prince doesn't want Drake to stoop to Push's level and screw with his mainstream rep ... and, presumably, his mainstream money. 

Delta Air Lines Another Dog Dies

6/2/2018 10:54 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Another dog took off on a commercial airliner and when the plane landed ... it was dead. 

Alejandro the Pomeranian was in the cargo hold of a Delta Air Lines jet that originated in Phoenix and was supposed to land in New Jersey with a stopover in Detroit. When the plane landed in the Motor City, we're told the 8-year-old Pom was alive ... but it was discovered he'd died during the process of transferring him to the connecting flight.

So far the cause of death has not been determined. Delta tells TMZ it's conducting a thorough investigation to find out what occurred to ensure it doesn't happen again. The airline says it's working with Alejandro's family to support them and has offered a free necropsy to have Alejandro evaluated. 

The dog was owned by a unmarried couple that was relocating to New York.

The lawyer for the family, Evan Oshan, tells us ... from what he knows Delta has been pushing people to put their dogs in the cargo hold rather than the cabin, presumably because there are so many service dogs on board these days the passenger areas resemble a kennel.

Delta, however, tells us it did not push the passengers to store their dog in cargo ... it was their choice.

Oshan knows something about dogs dying on planes ... he repped the family whose 10-month-old French bulldog, Kokito, died in an overhead bin on United

Matt Barnes All Eyez On My Tupac Tattoo!

Exclusive Details

All eyez are on Matt Barnes' right hand ... 'cause the ex-NBA baller just got the most insane Tupac tattoo!!

The artwork is crazy real ... and the story of how Barnes got it is even more wild.

The former Laker -- who's tatted all over -- was lookin' for a 'Pac piece ... and after seeing a Kobe Bryant tattoo that artist Steve Butcher did ... he hit him up on social media and locked down an appointment.

The dopest realistic tattoo artist we've ever seen flew all the way to L.A. (he's from New Zealand) to ink Matt's hand ... and he says the ex-hooper couldn't have been cooler!

The tat took about five hours to complete -- and we're saying, job well done.

BTW ... Butcher says Matt was the first NBA player he's tatted ... but he probably won't be the last. DeAndre Jordan's already told him he's interested in getting a piece done as well!!
