Christopher Darden Wins Restraining Order Against Baby Mama She's Obsessed with O.J.

2/10/2016 4:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021016-christopher-darden-gettyFormer O.J. Simpson prosecutor Chris Darden claims one of his baby mamas has been hounding and harassing him for months, making allegations he traded legal services for sex.

Darden just got a restraining order against Celia Smith, whom he says was upset because he didn't get her an apartment back in June. According to Darden's legal docs, Smith is angry that he got another one of his baby mamas an apartment but didn't get her one.

Darden acknowledges he has a 2-year-old daughter with Smith.

According to Darden, back in June, Smith posted on his law office's Yelp page, "Mr. Darden has sex with his clients if you don't have enough money to hire him, and you have p***y he will take your case." He says she rants on that he has "7 kids by 7 different women."

Darden also says Smith has developed a fixation with the O.J. Simpson case, emailing him under the name "Nicole Brown Simpson."  He says she's unstable and needs psychiatric intervention.

Darden says Smith has demanded to know how much money he's getting from the FX show, 'The People v. O.J. Simpson.' He says, "She rejected my true claim that I was neither consulted, contracted, paid or involved in any way with the show."

Darden says his family is "on pins and needles" over her daily harassment. He now has a restraining order keeping her 100 yards from him and prohibiting contact by email, telephone, mail or any other electronic means. The order does allow Smith to have "brief and peaceful contact" with Darden as it relates to their child.

Kendall Jenner Sues Excuse Me, Laser Co ... This Face Gets At Least $10 Mil!!

2/10/2016 3:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0210-kendall-jenner-exhibit-swipe-02

Kendall Jenner's calling out a skin treatment company in a lawsuit, and the takeaway is this -- she gets paid way more money than we thought, and she's very, very, VERY successful.

Kendall's beef is with Cutera, which used her face and name to advertise their Laser Genesis acne treatment. The ad takes credit for Kendall's "nearly flawless skin" -- but she says she never gave them permission and she never had any deal with Cutera.

The bigger point in this suit comes in the extensive rundown of 20-year-old Kendall's career. As stated in the docs, she has "graced the covers of the world's most prestigious fashion magazines, including Vogue, Vogue Paris, Vogue Japan, Vogue Brazil, Harper's Bazaar (shot by Karl Lagerfeld), Allure, GQ, Glamour, Marie Claire, LOVE, Interview, Paper, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Cleo, Garage, Dazed, Raine and BLANK, amongst others."

There's even more about her runway work and department stores and blah blah blah ... we'll spare you.

But in the docs, Kendall says she'd command a fee well into 8 FIGURES to do a worldwide endorsement of a product like Cutera. So, she wants the company to hand over its profits ... which better total at least $10 million.

Kendall's lawyer Todd Wilson says, "The right to associate Kendall Jenner's name and likeness in connection with a product or service belongs solely to Kendall Jenner and is protected by Federal and State law. Today's lawsuit by Ms. Jenner against Cutera, Inc., for the unauthorized use of Ms. Jenner's name and likeness to promote its product should serve notice that Ms. Jenner will vigorously defend her rights under the law."

Beyonce-Bashing News Anchor I'm Not Racist Or Afraid of the Crazed Beyhive

EXCLUSIVE

0210_Tomi-Lahren-and-Beyonce-TWITTER-GETTYBerating Beyonce for her black power halftime show is blowing up in a news anchor's face -- she's been called a "redneck ass bitch" and "racist cracker" -- but says she's not backing down.

Tomi Lahren's social media has been flooded with nasty comments since her brutal critique of Bey went viral. Lahren tells TMZ the "Black Lives Matter folks" and "militant Bey Hivers" completely missed her message -- that America should be coming together.

Lahren -- an online anchor for TheBlaze --  thinks viewers missed the real point, in her eyes ... that Beyonce used a violent civil rights group to provoke racial tensions.

She insists she's not racist and wants all her haters to know this -- "Don't you dare come at me with your hate and your call to violence and your threats on my life and tell me racism is a one-way street."

EXCLUSIVE

0210-josh-morgan-getty-01Here's a case of actually adding insult to injury ... because a former NFL wide receiver accidentally shot himself with a loaded gun -- and was then charged with a crime ... TMZ Sports has learned.  

The man behind the trigger is 30-year-old Josh Morgan -- who spent 7 seasons in the league with the 49ers, Redskins and Bears. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... cops in Virginia responded to a report of a man with a self-inflicted gunshot wound around 9 PM on January 31st. 

We're told Morgan claimed he was cleaning the weapon when it accidentally went off ... leaving him with non-life threatening injuries.

He was hospitalized and we're told he'll be okay -- but now he's got a new set of problems because he's been charged with misdemeanor reckless use of a firearm and has a court date in March.  

A rep from Morgan's camp tells TMZ Sports ... "He's fine. It was a simple accident."

Jerry Jones is in the running to host a possible Gennady Golovkin vs. Canelo Alvarez fight at AT&T Stadium in Dallas ... Triple G's promoter tells TMZ Sports. 

There are tentative plans for the two boxing superstars to fight in September (if contracts can be worked out) ... and GGG's promoter, Tom Loeffler, says one of the possible venues is Jerry's World.

"Jerry Jones has watched GGG's last few fights and he expressed a big interest in having the fight in Dallas at his stadium," Loeffler tells us. 

"GGG will fight anywhere, but he's aware of Jerry Jones and the atmosphere in his stadium. Whenever Jerry Jones gets involved, he takes promotion to a new level."

"You hear 70,000 people screaming ... the huge video board... it's an amazing venue. And GGG understands the popularity of the Cowboys, the influence they have in the U.S. and around the world."

"I'd love to see that happen."

Loeffler says there are two other venues in the running -- the MGM Grand in Vegas and Madison Square Garden in NYC. 

If the two fighters do manage to hammer out a contract, we're told the fight will go down on Sept. 17th. But first, GGG has to emerge victorious in his upcoming fight with Dominic Wade on April 23rd at the Forum in L.A. 

Stay tuned ...

Future Ciara's Lawsuit's a Joke She Made Money Off Bad Mouthing Me!

2/10/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209_future_ciara_tmzCiara's throwing $15 million rocks from inside a giant glass house ... which is why Future thinks she doesn't have a chance in hell of winning a dime off him. 

Sources close to Future tell TMZ, the rapper thinks it's absurd his baby mama filed the slander suit, since she's talked plenty of trash on him. We're told he believes Exhibit A is her 2015 platinum selling hit, "I Bet." 

With lyrics like ... "You know that it hurts your pride but you thought the grass was greener on the other side. I bet you start loving me as soon as I start loving someone else. Somebody better than you” -- the song is widely believed to be about Future allegedly cheating on Ciara.

Our source says he could've sued over that, but didn't want to be petty. As for whether he fires back with a lawsuit now -- we're told he's considering it, but hasn't seen Ciara's docs yet. His team claims the process server at LAX failed to deliver.

Bottom line: it's a safe bet this is gonna get much uglier.

Jada Pinkett Smith Hey Academy ... Black People Don't Automatically Vote Black

2/10/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jada Pinkett Smith doesn't think loading the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with black people is a solution to the obvious problem.

We got Jada Tuesday in Flint, Michigan, where she met with the Mayor over the water crisis. Jada doesn't like the notion that black people will automatically vote black.

She has a fascinating point to make about "Beasts of No Nation" and Idris Elba, and why they got overlooked.

As for whether she's softened her position on attending the Oscars ... take a guess and watch the video.

Magic Johnson I Like Trump's Hotels ... BUT I'M STILL TEAM HILLARY

2/10/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It takes more than 1,000 thread count sheets to sway Magic Johnson's presidential loyalty ... cause Mr. Laker says he's 100% voting for Hillary Clinton ... even as he leaves one of Donald Trump's hotels.

Magic's endorsement is a HUGE deal in the political world ... so when we got him leaving a Trump hotel in NYC we wanted to know if he was kinda thinking about making America great again. 

The answer is NO ... We didn't even get our question out before Magic assured us that he's still in Clinton's corner and there doesn't seem to be anything that can change that.

Bonus NBA talk? Magic also told us that he hopes former Knicks head coach Derek Fisher gets another job in the league, saying in his opinion D-Fish is "a good leader."

Check out the clip.

See's Candies Jewish Guy Sues Your Valentine's Boxes are a Kosher LIE!!!

2/10/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209_SEES_CANDY_zoom_arrow

See's Candies has screwed with Jewish tradition by advertising its Valentine's Day boxes as kosher, when they're strictly for the goyim.

Avi Weiss, a Jewish man who keeps kosher, claims in a new lawsuit he wandered into a See's shop last month looking for some kosher sweets. He says the box was specifically advertised as "kosher certified." Check out the lower left corner of the display above the stacks of boxes. 

Now here's where it's a little weird. Avi never explains how he knew the candies weren't kosher. He doesn't say if he ate them nor does he say what gave the unholiness away.  

Avi DOES say kosher certified products "command a premium in the marketplace," and because the boxes aren't kosher he overpaid.

His is a class action suit, for all the upset Jews who are left holding the box on Valentine's Day.

Sources close to the reality stars tell us Ashley just found out she's pregnant with PT's baby and both are very excited.  

Ashley and PT's off-and-on romance has been covered on the show, but we're told they want to keep the pregnancy off camera ... so no diaper drama story lines, for now. 

Even though their relationship was shaky for the last 8 months, our sources say they're good now. Obviously, they were VERY good on at least one occasion.
