Kim Zolciak & NeNe Rival Housewives Throw Shade ... We Don't Need More 'Stars'

2/10/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0209-real-housewives-excluded-tmz-gettyNeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak won't get a warm welcome from their fellow 'RHOA' cast members, who think the former dynamic duo is too messy and too expensive.

Sources close to 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' tell us the women are saying there's no need to bring back NeNe and Kim because all they bring is over-the-top drama just to get camera time. As one source put it, there's "no substance."

We're told there's also a financial concern -- that Kim and NeNe's bloated salaries might chew up the budget, resulting in lower raises for the current cast.

Our sources say certain housewives called production Thursday to complain about the infamous frenemies returning. We're told some of the current housewives feel dissed after working hard to keep ratings up -- which they have, and now producers want to "add bulls***."

Ironically, it sounds like all this dissent would create real drama ... with substance.

However, Sheree Whitfield told us Thursday ... she'd welcome them with open arms. You buyin' it?

Joe Montana I Can't Say Brady's the Best QB Ever ... At Least Not In Public!

2/10/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Joe Montana was asked point-blank if 5-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady has finally surpassed him as the greatest QB of all time. 

He won't say "Yes."

The 49ers legend appeared on "Home & Family" on the Hallmark Channel (airs Friday) with his wife Jennifer ... when they got into one of big sports topics of the week -- Montana vs. Brady. 

The hosts even pressed and asked Joe if he considered HIMSELF the #1 QB ever -- to which he replied: 

"Even though people say it -- and I appreciate it -- I still can't say that about myself."

That's when Jennifer came through with this gem -- "At home you're saying that all the time!!" 

Joke or nah? 

Blac Chyna Alleged Mgrs Demand Dough ... Shut Down 'Rob & Chyna' Or Else

2/10/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0208-blac-chyna-rob-kardashian-tmzThe guys who made Blac Chyna a thing -- according to them -- are on the warpath to get a cut of her riches, and if they don't get it ... they're gunning for the producers of her reality show.

Jason Alston and Lincoln Hayes of Infinite Grind Multimedia sent letters, obtained by TMZ, to NBCUniversal, Ryan Seacrest Productions and Bunim/Murray Productions ... putting all parties on notice about their legal war with Chyna.

The duo says shooting, promoting, or airing "Rob & Chyna" only fattens her pockets and since she refuses to pay them their fees ... they're threatening to add the producers to a potential lawsuit.

We broke the story ... Alston and Hayes claim Chyna signed a 10 year contract with them in 2007 and owes them at least $3 million in unpaid fees. They've threatened, but have yet to actually sue her for the dough.

Of course her employers would have no duty to pay BC's alleged management fees -- so, it's interesting they're attempting to drag the producers into this. Can't knock the hustle?

DJ Khaled Major Lawsuit Alert ... Over 'I Got the Keys'

2/9/2017 4:29 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

DJ Khaled's hit track with Jay Z and Future features stolen property ... according to a producer who's suing over beats in "I Got the Keys."

Chris Hill says he produced a beat in March 2008 which appeared on "Chris Hill Beats (Gangsta Boogie Vol 2)." He says he met Khaled in October 2008 at an Atlanta nightclub, and handed him a CD.

Hill says he never heard a peep from Khaled -- then lo and behold, 8 years later, 'Keys' dropped. In the lawsuit, Hill says he immediately recognized his handiwork. He notes just how popular Khaled's track has become -- more than 79 million YouTube views.

He's suing Khaled -- not Future or Jay -- as well as Sony Music and various producers for a cut of their immense profits.

Michael Jackson Cousin Trent Says Some of Singer's Siblings Out for Money Grab

2/9/2017 1:53 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0209-trent-jackson-katherine-jackson-TMZ-AP-01The nephew ordered to stay away from Katherine Jackson says he knows what is really going on ... some of Michael Jackson's siblings are plotting a money grab against the MJ estate.

A judge clearly sees it differently, siding with Katherine, who claims Trent Jackson has been fleecing her out of money and isolating her from her family. Trent, who Katherine says she is now scared he may physically harm her, has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from her and her home.

Sources close to Trent tell TMZ, he's adamant he did nothing untoward and believes some of MJ's brothers and sisters want him out of the way so they have a clear path to Katherine and MJ's estate.

We're told Trent believes some of Katherine's kids will now try and influence her to put pressure on Michael's estate to give her a bigger piece of the pie, and he believes they want to cut themselves in on the action.

Here's the problem with Trent's theory. Katherine has no right to simply get more money because she wants it. She gets a healthy stipend, and the duty of those in charge of the estate is to preserve and grow the assets for the benefit of Michael's 3 kids and his designated charities.

And, Trent has another problem. We're told he refuses to surrender the keys to Katherine's guesthouse where he's been living, but the restraining order is clear ... he has to give up the keys and move out.

EXCLUSIVE

0209-teresa-giudice-TMZ-01Teresa Giudice's paychecks are going to be a little fatter now, because she's completely paid up the six-figure tab that was part of her sentence for fraud charges.

Teresa's wages will no longer be garnished to fulfill the $414,588 restitution ordered by the court in 2014 ... according to new docs. The prosecutor's already notified the court she's all square.

The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star's not completely off the hook. She's still on supervised release for about a year, plus she should consider saving some of her disposable income for the tax man.

As for Teresa's husband, Joe ... he's in the middle of a 41 month stint in the slammer.

Johnny Manziel CFL Investigating Alleged Workout (Update: Johnny Denies Workout)

2/9/2017 1:06 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0209-johnny-manziel-TMZ-02update_graphic_red_bar1:05 PM PT -- We spoke with Johnny who says the report is straight-up WRONG -- "I have had no workouts with any team from the CFL."update-grey-gray-bar

The Canadian Football League tells TMZ Sports it has launched an investigation into reports Johnny Manziel had an illegal workout with the Saskatchewan Roughriders

The issue is simple ... the Hamilton Tiger-Cats currently hold the negotiating rights to Manziel if he wanted to play in the CFL -- so any possible workout would have to go through them first.

But, according to a report out of Canada, Manziel worked out with the Roughriders in Florida in late January.

The Roughriders have called B.S. on the report claiming NO workout took place -- but the CFL says it's investigating nonetheless.

"We are investigating," CFL Communications Director Paulo Senra tells us.

"The Riders tell us that they did not work out Manziel. So at this point, it appears the report is false. Should other evidence come to light, we will deal with it accordingly."

Mischa Barton 911 Call She's Threatening to Kill Herself

2/9/2017 7:42 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Mischa Barton's meltdown last month had her neighbors extremely concerned, after the actress screamed for all to hear she wanted to kill herself.

TMZ has obtained two 911 calls, where Mischa's neighbors reported she was off the rails, leaning over her fence and vowing to end her life.

Mischa says someone slipped her a date rape drug and that was the trigger, but one of the callers says authorities come out every few months when she exhibits similar conduct.

Mischa agreed to go to the hospital after paramedics arrived.

She was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold back in 2009.

Jason Derulo The Pilot's Head Needs to Roll

2/9/2017 7:28 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jason Derulo wants an American Airlines pilot fired ... for allegedly cussing him out and triggering an ugly mob scene on a flight.

We got Jason early Thursday morning at LAX, and he was still hot as fish grease over an incident in Miami. As we reported, Jason and his crew of 7 arrived too late to check their 19 bags, so they left one guy behind who tried checking them on a later flight. Just as Jason's plane left the gate, the guy they left behind called and said AA was charging them $6k for excess baggage.

Jason demanded to go back to the gate, and he tells us the pilot went on the intercom, blamed the delay on him and when the plane reached the gate he says the pilot screamed, "I want these motherf*****s off my plane right now!"

EXCLUSIVE

0208-nene-leakes-kim-zolciak-tmz'Real Housewives' producers are ready to Make Atlanta Great Again, which means bringing back NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak ... and the infamous frenemies just might be up for it.

Sources close to the show tell us execs want the milestone 10th season to be HUGE, and since fans have been clamoring to see NeNe and Kim reunited ... they're trying to make it happen. Previous attempts to get them for a spin-off failed ... due to scheduling conflicts, but we're told that won't be an issue this time around.

We're told producers put out feelers already and there's definite interest on the part of both women. No formal offer's been made yet, but the fact Kim is doing a cameo at the end of season 9 is a good sign a deal is close.

We can see it already ... "Welcome back, Wig!"
