Offset Migos-Chris Brown Fight All About Money & Haters

6/27/2017 4:25 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown just ain't on the same level as Migos ... at least according to Offset, who says he's not sweating the fight they got into with Chris after the BET Awards.

We got Offset Tuesday on Rodeo and asked him what really set off the melee. There's obvious speculation it was about Quavo dating Breezy's ex, Karrueche Tran. Offset didn't exactly deny that when he blamed it on a "whole lotta paper, whole lotta haters, man."

But you gotta see what happened when we asked if he's got a message for Chris.

He also had an awesome reaction to the other BET weekend fight -- Meek Mill and Safaree. #LMFAO

WWE's David Otunga I Wanna Wrestle With Lavar Ball!! ... Make it Happen, Vince!!

6/27/2017 4:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

WWE star David Otunga says he was so blown away by LaVar Ball's shirtless antics on Monday Night Raw ... he wants to wrestle him ... and he's asking Vince McMahon to make it happen!

We spoke with the Raw commentator about LaVar's wrestling debut ... and Otunga says it was the most entertaining part of the night, even if he went "off the rails."

Otunga hopes Ball gets invited back ... saying he'd dust off his spandex for a shot at LaVar ... if Vince gave him the green light. 

Otunga -- who's married to Jennifer Hudson -- also talked to us about a movie he made with his son for Father's Day ... and it's safe to say David Jr. takes after his star parents.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Producers Must Approve Before ... Contestants Get it On

6/27/2017 3:32 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Bachelor in Paradise" contestants who want to have sex must wait a beat and get permission from producers ... TMZ has learned.

Sources at the Mexican resort where the show is being filmed tell TMZ there are new rules in place regarding sex ... especially in "The Boom Boom Room" -- where most indoor sex goes down.

We're told before anyone can get it on, both parties must go to a producer and state that they consent. If the producer feels either party is incapable of giving consent, the producer can pull the plug.

We're told when contestants arrived over the weekend, they sat through a 2-hour meeting with lawyers and others who ran through all the rules.

And get this ... if contestants violate the rule and go right into "The Boom Boom Room," producers can barge in and stop things mid-coitus.

TMZ broke the story ... Warner Bros. implemented new rules as part of the show's reboot, including handing over all drugs -- legal or not -- and a 2-drink maximum per hour.

The policies come on the heels of a sexual misconduct investigation which ultimately concluded there was no wrongdoing between DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios.

Ron White's Wife Files for Divorce With a Twist

6/27/2017 1:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nothing funny about this ... Ron White's wife is tapping out of their marriage, and it looks like the length of their union will be a major point of contention.

Margo Rey filed divorce docs last week in Los Angeles ... saying they've been separated since May 8. They got married in October 2013 ... and have no children.

Now, here's what's interesting -- in the docs Margo says she and Ron had a common law marriage in Texas since 2008 ... long before they officially tied the knot. In Texas, a couple can be considered married in the eyes of the law if they live together as husband and wife and hold themselves out in public as a married couple.

Margo says she wants Ron to pay spousal support. It's likely she raised the common law issue so the marriage would pre-date 2013 by 5 years, thus entitling her to more spousal support.

We've reached out to Ron's camp ... no word back yet.

EXCLUSIVE

Rihanna's getting along swimmingly with a guy we're hearing might be her new boyfriend ... and it couldn't be clearer they can't keep their hands off each other.

RiRi and the guy -- we don't know who -- were making out in a pool ... and all over each other for sure.

The pics were taken in Spain on Monday, where it appears she's vacationing with him. They're staying in a posh villa.

She was a no-show at the BET Awards ... she clearly had a better offer.

Nicki Minaj Meek, Safaree Who? I'm Moving On with Nas!

6/27/2017 11:53 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj couldn't care less about her 2 exes' drama over BET weekend ... 'cause she's got a new hip-hop king to occupy her mind.

Sources close to Nicki tell TMZ she hasn't batted an eyelash over news Meek Mill might have ordered his goons to jump her other ex, Safaree. And the reason is simple ... Nas.

We're told Nicki doesn't feel anything about the fight, mostly 'cause it's not her problem ... and both of those dudes are in her rearview. More importantly ... she's happily moving on with her new man, Mr. Jones ... although it's still in the early stages.

Only KINGS recognize QUEENS. @sweetchicklife has the best food 👅 congrats @nas 😜

A post shared by Nicki Minaj (@nickiminaj) on

As we reported ... Safaree challenged Meek to a 1-on-1 fight after he claimed Meek orchestrated the attack on him. Meek denies that.

Either way, the bottom line here ... Nicki's over both Meek and Safaree, and their beef is theirs alone. 

Somewhere, she and Nas are playing the Counting Crows -- looking deep into each other's eyes.

Matt Barnes Pleads Guilty In Club Fight Case ... Punished

6/27/2017 7:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Matt Barnes ain't going to jail for his role in a Dec. nightclub brawl in NYC -- but he will spend some time helping out the community per a plea deal in the case ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The Golden State Warriors star appeared in court Tuesday morning where he formally pled guilty to disorderly conduct and in exchange he was sentenced to 10 days of community service.

We broke the story ... Barnes and DeMarcus Cousins were in the middle of a violent altercation inside Avenue nightclub on Dec. 5 after he allegedly "butt bumped" a woman near his VIP booth. 

The woman claimed Barnes choked her. Barnes claimed he was merely defending himself

The NBA star was eventually arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault -- but he cut a deal with prosecutors to get a lighter sentence.

Barnes is due back in court in August for an update on the community service.

Of course, Barnes is also being sued by the victims in civil court -- they want Barnes and DeMarcus to pay up big-time for injuries they claim the players caused.

EXCLUSIVE

Zach Randolph doesn't want to leave Memphis for a super team ... he wants to bring the super team to Memphis!! 

Z-Bo is entering free agency after 8 seasons with the Grizzlies and everyone wants to know what his next move is gonna be.

With "super teams" being the hot topic, we asked Randolph if he would consider pulling a Durant and joining a loaded squad like Golden State or Cleveland. 

"Memphis," Randolph replied ... "We're gonna build a super team there!" 

With Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and Gordon Hayward available, it's not completely out of the question ... though even Zach seems to acknowledge it's unlikely they'll end up in the BBQ capital of the world. 

We also talked about his teammate, Vince Carter, who's 40 years old -- and Randolph told us he thinks Vinsanity can ball in the NBA for at least another 4 years!!!

Zach says they don't call him "Half man, half amazing" for nothing. 

'Bachelor in Paradise' Reboot 2 Drink Max Per Hour

6/27/2017 6:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Bachelor in Paradise" producers aren't taking any chances of drunken, nonconsensual sex ... because they've imposed new drinking rules on the cast.

Production sources tell us there is now a 2 drink max per hour. We're told the crew is monitoring drinking levels among the cast and the bartenders are also responsible for keeping tabs.

Producers have also made a point of providing food at all times during the shoots ... presumably to absorb the alcohol.

We're told the cast got a talkin' to over the whole Corinne/DeMario situation, both on and off camera, and drinking was a big talking point.

We're told they're a few days in, and so far, nothing too crazy ... which is not necessarily a good thing on 'BIP.'

Beyonce and Jay-Z Billionaire Vagabonds With No Place to Live

6/27/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jay-Z, Beyonce and their 3 kids are living large huge in Malibu this summer, but the clock is ticking for them and come fall they will scramble again for a place to live.

Real estate sources tell TMZ the $400,000-a-month Malibu estate they're renting is just for the summer. We're told they have no intention of living there past August because Blue Ivy is enrolled in an exclusive school in the heart of L.A. and the drive is way too far.

Before moving to the Malibu mansion, Bey, Jay and Blue Ivy were living in a luxurious hotel as they hunted in vain for a place of their own.

Our real estate sources say the Carters have been frustrated because their search -- which has gone on for several years -- has hit a stumbling block, and the stumbling block is cash.

We're told their budget is around $75 million, give or take a few mil. It sounds nuts, but they can't find a place they love for the amount they're willing to spend. As one well-connected source puts it, "They want a super baller, crazy estate, and the ones they love are going for $150 mil."

Our sources say the Carters have seen just about everything that's on the market and nothing in their price range is floating their boat.

Yes, it's just nuts.

Meek Mill Warned Safaree Stay Away from BET Awards

6/27/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill fired a warning shot but Safaree Samuels didn't care ... and that's why he got his ass kicked.

We're told Meek's crew delivered the message days before the BET Awards weekend kicked off in L.A. The message was simple -- stay yo ass away or else. Our Safaree sources tell us he didn't flinch when he heard the threat and wasn't gonna be a punk and hide out.

TMZ broke the story ... Meek's crew jumped and attacked Safaree Friday. Nicki Minaj's 2 exes had shown up almost around the same time to DJ Khaled's pre-BET party at Penthouse in WeHo when it went down.

We're told the beef at this point is way beyond Nicki ... it's gotten personal following the exchange of verbal jabs for more than a year. Meek has denied he was involved in the latest showdown.

But a boiling point's clearly been reached -- cause Safaree's now challenged Meek to a fight.

Stay tuned ...

But despite their feud over the McGregor vs. Mayweather fight -- De La Hoya tells TMZ Sports he still "loves" Dana and even made a pretty solid peace offering. 

No word if Dana will accept ... he's still pretty pissed too.
