Kylie Jenner I Got Better Things to Do ... Than Sue Blac Chyna

3/23/2018 3:31 PM PDT

Kylie Jenner has taken herself out of the lawsuit she joined with her brother, Rob Kardashian, against Blac Chyna, because the reality is she doesn't have a dog in that fight.

As TMZ reported, Rob sued Chyna for allegedly going on a rampage in December 2016, claiming he tried choking him with an iPhone charging cable and then repeatedly struck him when she was high on drugs and booze.

The suit also claimed Chyna trashed the house he was renting from Kylie, breaking a door and damaging walls. The suit claims more than $100k in damages.

Rob said in the lawsuit the tirade was a factor in E! canceling their reality show because the situation was too volatile.

For some reason the lawyer who had initially handled the case added Kylie, but turns out Rob had repaired the damage himself so she really had no financial stake in the case. Her new lawyer, Shawn Holley, just had her 86'd from the lawsuit.

As a result, the judge just denied Blac Chyna's request to order Kylie to sit for a deposition.

Kim Kardashian My Snaplight Lawuit's Dismissed ... IT'S FULLY LIT!!!!

3/23/2018 3:45 PM PDT

Kim Kardashian has one less legal headache to worry about after apparently striking a settlement with SnapLight over illuminated phone cases.

SnapLight and Kim's company -- Kimsaprincess, Inc. -- filed docs to have the lawsuit tossed out of court. As we reported, SnapLight had sued Team Kim for $100 mil, claiming she got in to bed with LuMee to sell the phone cases -- using tech Snalight created years earlier. 

According to the docs, the suit can't be refiled, and we're told Kim's side is thrilled with the outcome. However, that doesn't necessarily mean any money was exchanged. Worth noting ... Kim's dismissal comes on the heels of LuMee and SnapLight dismissing a separate, but related lawsuit. 

You may now resume taking your perfectly lit selfies.

Odell Beckham Jr. Sued For $15 Mil Over Alleged Brutal Assault

3/23/2018 2:45 PM PDT

3:22 PM PT -- Beckham Jr. vehemently denies the allegations, and issued the following statement through his attorney, Daniel Davillier:

"Ishmael Temple has expressly acknowledged in his own lawsuit that Odell Beckham, Jr. never once touched him; and yet, Mr. Beckham is being sued for an alleged altercation that definitively did not involve him at all." 

In the statement, Beckham's legal team also claims Mr. Temple arrived at the party drunk, belligerent and made threats to several attendees ... at which point he was repeatedly asked to leave. They claim he was repeatedly asked to leave, and got into a fight -- but NOT with Odell -- and was then escorted off the premises.

They point out, Temple himself says Odell wasn't involved in the physical altercation -- but they claim he demanded money from Odell. 

Davillier added, “This guy claims somebody assaulted him to near death, but there’s no police report, no hospital record, no evidence of an actual injury, and he asserts that Odell is responsible. This is clearly a frivolous lawsuit. We’ll see him in court.”

Odell Beckham Jr. is being sued by a guy who claims all he did was go to Beckham's house and he got the crap beaten out of him.

Ishmael Temple claims in a new lawsuit he's been friends with Beckham. Temple claims he was invited to Beckham's home in January. He says he was shaking hands with people inside the home and went for the hand of Beckham's hired muscle, Charles Puryear, when the bodyguard pulled out a gun and pointed it toward him, saying, "I bet you've never gotten shot before."

Temple says he then pulled Beckham aside to tell him what happened and says Beckham just laughed it off and told him to relax. He says 20 minutes later, when he was ready to leave, another guy punched him in the back of the head and Puryear joined in, stomping Temple.

Temple says he blacked out and woke up to kicks to his face and Beckham did not order security to stop.

He says the beating stemmed from an incident the week before, when he says Beckham's security verbally assaulted him when he sought to retrieve his phone from Beckham's house. He thinks security resents him because, "as a Hollywood social event organizer, [he] knew many of the female ladies present at Beckham's residence."

Temple says he was beaten to a pulp ... his 2 front teeth got chipped and his lip was busted. He says his earring got ripped out of his ear and his knee got messed up.

Temple says he's spent $18k just to fix his teeth.

And there's more ... Temple, an event organizer, says he's been blacklisted as a result of the fight.

He's suing for $15 million.

Rob Gronkowski Arrest Made In Home Burglary

3/23/2018 2:50 PM PDT

Rest easy Gronk, the scumbag who allegedly broke into your Massachusetts house is behind bars.

Gronkowski's house was burglarized on February 5 ... while RG was in Minnesota for the Super Bowl. Gronk's bedroom was locked, so the burglars never entered his room ... however, stuff was taken from the house.

After a 6-week investigation, Foxborough PD announced they arrested a man named Anthony Almeida -- 31 years old.

Almeida was charged with breaking and entering, 2 counts of receiving stolen property, and malicious destruction of property.

Police say they recovered an Apple Watch, a Rolex, and 2 rare coins. They are still looking for multiple firearms that were taken.

But that's not all ... cops are on the hunt for 2 other men they believe also participated in the robbery.

FYI -- Gronk PERSONALLY made the 911 call ... saying "This isn't an emergency ... this is just uh, Rob Gronkowski calling. And while I was gone, my whole house got robbed while on the Super Bowl trip and I just got back."

Jonah Hill's Brother Nitrous Canisters All Over His Room At Time of His Death

3/23/2018 2:19 PM PDT

Music manager Jordan Feldstein -- Jonah Hill's older brother -- had Whip-It! canisters all over the room where he was found dead ... according to the Coroner's Office.

In the docs, the Coroner says Jordan had multiple canisters of nitrous strewn about his bedroom when first responders arrived. The report includes toxicology results, which show he had only trace amounts of a cocaine metabolite in his urine. Also, he tested negative for any alcohol in his system.

As we reported ... Jordan had called 911 in December, and when EMTs arrived he was found unresponsive on his bed. The Coroner's report says someone on the scene told officers Jordan had been abusing nitrous oxide for about a month. 

Jordan managed Maroon 5, Miguel and Robin Thicke. He was 40.

DMX Y'all Gon' Make Me Serve Some Time ...

3/23/2018 1:49 PM PDT

DMX is gonna have the book thrown at him in his tax evasion case, if federal prosecutors get their way ... TMZ has learned.

According to docs, the U.S. District Attorney's Office is recommending the rapper get the max -- 5 years in prison -- when he's sentenced next week. Prosecutors are urging the judge to "send the message" to X that "star power doesn't entitle someone to a free pass."

TMZ broke the story ... DMX struck a plea in November. He entered a guilty plea to one count of tax evasion, and avoided seriously hard time -- up to 40 years.

X was feeling good about the case after the deal, but since then he's been sent back to jail for failing a drug test -- and now prosecutors want to make sure he learns a lesson.

In docs, prosecutors say he's been "on a one-man crime spree for the past 30 years."

He does have a lot of mug shots. Sentencing goes down next Wednesday. 

Nikolas Cruz's Brother Body Cam Footage Shows Arrest At Marjory Stoneman Douglas

3/23/2018 10:48 AM PDT

Zachary Cruz, the younger brother of Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz, is seen on video -- obtained by TMZ -- outside the very school where Nikolas slaughtered 17 people.

Zachary was arrested for trespassing, this after he's caught on tape telling officers he was there to "take it all in." That was enough for cops to take his backpack and search for possible weapons.

The video shows a calm, mild-mannered 18-year-old wearing nondescript clothes -- a white t-shirt, baseball cap and headphones. Cops say he had been skateboarding on the grounds of Stoneman Douglas High School.  

It seems cops were, at first, willing to let Cruz go with just a warning, but as other officers arrived it became clear he was on the property several times before and was warned to stay away. That's when police had a change of heart and decided to cuff him and take him in.

It's clear police knew Zachary's brother was Nikolas Cruz. You hear the connection in the dispatch audio.

Syracuse Legend Hakim Warrick Cuse Can Beat Duke ... In Sweet 16

3/23/2018 12:45 PM PDT

Syracuse legend Hakim Warrick says don't pencil 11.5 point favorite Duke into the Elite 8 just yet ... 'cause the Orange have a legit shot at takin' down Coach K's squad.

Cuse, a #11 seed that many people said didn't even deserve to make the NCAA tourney will play Duke -- a #2 seed -- later Friday in L.A. ... and almost no one's giving them a shot in Hell to win the game.

Except Hakim Warrick.

In case you forgot ... Hakim made one of the greatest defensive plays in the history of the tournament when he blocked a potential championship winning 3-pointer against Kansas in 2003 ... delivering the SU its first and only national title.

So, the guy knows what it takes to win in March ... and he wholeheartedly feels Cuse has a "punchers chance."

"We're underdogs, but we're still, I think one of the top programs in the nation even though we're a little short-handed."

As far as battling the mighty Blue Devils ... "You're either a Duke fan of you hate Duke. As a Syracuse guy, I would love to take them down."

Keshia Knight Pulliam's Ex to Judge Don't Let Famous CTE Doc Take Stand ... He Don't Know Me!!!

3/23/2018 11:14 AM PDT

Keshia Knight Pulliam's ex says no way in hell a famous CTE doctor should be allowed to testify in their divorce case ... claiming the Dr. never treated him.

Ed Hartwell filed legal docs in Fulton County, Georgia asking the judge NOT to allow Keshia's legal team to use Dr. Bennet Omalu as an expert witness. Omalu, of course, is the real-life doctor who inspired the Will Smith movie, "Concussion." 

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Ed -- who played 6 seasons in the NFL -- claims Keshia's playing dirty by bringing Dr. Omalu in at the last minute, and, even worse -- Omalu never examined or interviewed Ed, and to Ed's knowledge, has not reviewed his medical records.

This is the latest in their nasty divorce case. As we reported ... Ed filed for divorce and Keshia shot back, asking that Ed undergo a mental evaluation ... claiming he wanted to kill their unborn baby.

NFL's Zay Jones Family Forking Out $20k for Damages From Bizarre, Bloody Arrest

3/23/2018 10:24 AM PDT

Zay Jones won't face criminal charges for shattering a penthouse window because his family is covering the cost for repairs ... TMZ Sports has learned.

According to the L.A. County District Attorney ... there was no proof the Bills wide receiver acted with malice or wrongful intent. That seems odd, considering the video we got of Jones running naked in the hallway of the downtown L.A. building right before he kicked out the 30th floor window.

However, the D.A. also says the building wasn't looking to press charges ... most likely because Zay's family was extremely cooperative and told the building manager they'd cover the damages. According to docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, that's about $20,000.

We broke the story ... Jones was arrested Monday night for felony vandalism after getting into a naked altercation with his brother, Cayleb Jones of the Minnesota Vikings ... breaking the window and bleeding all over the hallways.

The Bills and the NFL still haven't said if Zay will face any league punishment.

Lamar Odom No Bad Blood with Khloe's Sisters ... Most of Them, Anyway

3/23/2018 9:56 AM PDT

Lamar Odom didn't bolt in the other direction when he ended up face-to-face with Khloe Kardashian's sisters -- he actually went out of his way to have a convo with them ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Kourtney KardashianKendall and Kylie Jenner walked into Mr Chow Thursday night in Bev Hills while Lamar was already there enjoying a meal. Obviously, severe awkwardness could have ensued, but sources in the restaurant tell us LO walked up to their table.

We're told the former in-laws all chatted and exchanged positive words. It wasn't a lengthy meet and greet -- Lamar was on his way out -- but a family source tells us the sisters were happy to see him out and doing well. We're told all 3 feel no bad blood toward Khloe's ex.

It could have been way different if Kim or Khloe were there -- at least based on the major shading that went down earlier this year. Lamar did an interview saying his marriage was over when Khloe moved on to "her second or third NBA player." Kim fired back it was over when he got caught at his "second or third brothel."

No such fireworks, though, from Kylie, Kourt and Kendall. As our source put it, "Everyone has moved on with their lives." 

Sean McVay Suh To Rams Not A Done Deal ... But We're Hopeful

3/23/2018 9:54 AM PDT

Sean McVay says anyone thinking Ndamukong Suh to the Rams is a done deal should pump their brakes ... telling TMZ Sports the deal is anything but done yet.

There was some speculation that Suh had settled on the Rams because after meeting with L.A. he canceled scheduled meetings with some other teams.

We got McVay out at LAX and asked the head man in L.A. if the Suh era in Tinseltown was a forgone conclusion, and Sean was cautiously optimistic at best.

"We'll see, excited about Marcus and Aquib, and if we're able to make that other move that'd be good for us, but we'll see. He's got a lot of other teams that want him."

Coach is totally Hollywood now ... he's mastered the cliffhanger.

Aubrey O'Day I Had A Sexual Relationship with DJT Jr. But, That's Not Why He's Getting Divorced

3/23/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Aubrey O'Day is telling close friends she absolutely had a sexual relationship with Donald Trump Jr. for months, but she strongly believes it has nothing to do with Trump's divorce.

Sources closely connected to O'Day tell TMZ, she had an affair with Trump Jr., but it didn't start until AFTER she filmed "The Celebrity Apprentice." She says she has "proof" of the affair. Our sources say Aubrey was told by Trump his marriage had fallen apart and he intended to leave his wife, Vanessa, and Aubrey believed it. 

The sources say Vanessa knew about the affair when it was happening in 2012. We're told Vanessa flew into a rage and eventually it got to Donald Trump, who told his son, in no uncertain terms, he had to end the relationship and "focus on his marriage to make it work."

DJT Jr. swiftly cut things off with Aubrey.

We're told Aubrey is "devastated" people are calling her a homewrecker. She says, first of all, she was told DJT Jr.'s marriage was over. Secondly, she says her affair did NOT trigger the divorce 6 years later

For now Aubrey doesn't want to come forward and tell her story because, as one source put it, "she's already lost." We're told she didn't sign an NDA and was never even asked to sign one ... and she says she hasn't gotten a penny from the Trump family.

She says no one from Trump's family has reached out to her since the news broke.
