Michael Buffer Judges Sucked, But Hookers Killed It ... for Canelo vs GGG

9/23/2017 12:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Canelo vs. GGG was great for literally everyone (especially hookers) ... except the judges who doo-doo'd on boxing's big night -- so says the man who introduced the fighters.

We got Michael Buffer a couple days after the fight ... and the legendary ring announcer didn't hold back on Saturday's controversial scorecards -- guaranteeing us that Adalaide Byrd (the 118-110 Canelo judge) wouldn't be ringside for the rematch.

But Buffer gave us a pretty long list of winners from fight night -- Vegas, promoters, banks, bartenders and, of course, prostitutes! 

Remember, Bishop Don "Magic" Juan has always said ... nothing brings hookers and johns together like a big fight! 

Kylie Jenner Pregnant

9/22/2017 1:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner is pregnant and Travis Scott is about to become a dad.

We're told 20-year-old Kylie began telling friends earlier this month at the Day N Night Fest in Anaheim, CA.

Sources also say 25-year-old Travis Scott, Kylie's boyfriend, has also been telling his friends. We're even told -- although we cannot verify -- that he's told friends they're having a girl.

One source says Travis was at a recent event telling people about the pregnancy and how his life was going to change.

If they are punking their friends with repeated pregnancy proclamations, it's super weird ... especially in light of the photo (above) which Kylie herself just posted on Snapchat.

It's also interesting ... Kylie's been posting old pics of herself on Instagram and current shots from the chest up.

Kylie and Travis have been together since April.

If you're wondering what Kylie's ex, Tyga, thinks about the fetus news, he posted this on Snapchat and quickly deleted it. What do ya think -- is he bitter or relieved?

Tyga Speechless Over News Kylie's Pregnant

9/22/2017 5:19 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tyga's either A) Over Kylie B) Jealous another dude knocked her up or C) In massive denial.

We got Kylie's ex Friday on Rodeo Drive when our photog fired a slew of questions in his direction, all about the story TMZ broke earlier in the day ... Kylie and Travis are havin' a baby!!!

Tyga's clearly underwhelmed, or at least that's the way he's presenting himself.

You gotta watch the clip and hear the last question our photog fires off as Tyga books it in his Bugatti Veyron ... pretty hysterical.

EXCLUSIVE

Authorities have already executed search warrants on multiple people suspected in the plot to extort Kevin Hart over the sex tape ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, a judge signed the warrants earlier this week and they were executed almost immediately. We're told the information and items seized have already yielded results and have helped close in on the people who demanded 7 figures from Hart to keep the tape silent.

We're told one of the key items is phone records, but also computer hard drives and other electronics.

The investigation is full steam ahead. 

PodcastOne Founder Sued He Pulled a Gun to Intimidate Me Into Fudging Podcast Data

9/22/2017 4:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

5:57 PM PT -- Pattiz tells TMZ, “This guy must be crazy. I’ve never met alone with him. I didn't hire him or fire him. I barely know who he is. The fact that I'm a law enforcement reserve is well known as I have public service awards in my office.

He adds, "I didn't and would never act in the manner that's been described.  We have received no lawsuit but I presume this is in response to our letting him know today that we are going to sue him.  His allegations are absurd.”

An attorney for Podcast One tells us they're suing Hernandez for stealing intellectual property -- and they have no idea why he was canned from his most recent job.Norm Pattiz, the entrepreneur behind PodcastOne and Westwood One, had a bad habit of whipping out a loaded gun and knife during meetings with a producer ... according to a lawsuit.

Raymond Hernandez says Pattiz brandished a handgun in their office on multiple occasions, and also bragged about his deep ties with law enforcement. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, he says the broadcasting mogul would sometimes place the gun on his desk with the barrel pointed at Hernandez.

According to the suit, the boss man flaunted the firepower in order to intimidate Hernandez -- who says he was told to juice the numbers on podcast downloads in order to boost advertising revenue. Hernandez says he let it be known around the office he wasn't comfortable fudging numbers, and was fired shortly thereafter.

Hernandez says the gun play was also motivated by revenge. Last year, comedian Heather McDonald aired a recording of Pattiz sexually harassing her while she was on the job -- he made a comment about supporting her breasts. In the docs, Hernandez says Pattiz thinks he leaked the audio to Heather, and eventually pressured Hernandez's new employer to 86 him.

Hernandez, with his attorney Rob Reichman, is suing Pattiz for assault, wrongful termination and whistleblower retaliation.

We've reached out to Pattiz ... so far no word back.

Aaron Carter is finally giving in and checking into rehab, TMZ has learned, the day after police rushed to his home to do a welfare check.

TMZ broke the story ... cops in Florida responded when someone reported Aaron seemed high on something during a FaceTime conversation. Aaron's rep tells us, "Aaron has decided to enter a facility to improve his health and work on his overall wellness. He is going to do this privately and focus all his attention on being the best person and performer possible," adding Aaron's grateful for the support and love from his fans.

As we reported, Aaron taped an episode of 'Doctors' last month, but fled the studio at the first mention of him going into rehab. Family members have also been concerned he's relapsing.

As of now he's agreeing to check into a program, but as one source put it ... his decision "changes every hour."

Aaron Carter was in his right mind -- relatively speaking -- when authorities rushed to his home Thursday for a welfare check.

TMZ broke the story ... law enforcement rushed to Aaron's home after getting a call from someone who felt he was slurring his speech and not of sound mind. The man who interacted with Aaron was FaceTiming him.

According to dispatch audio, Aaron was evaluated at his Florida apartment and they found no "suspicious activity" when they saw him face-to-face.

Kylie and Kendall Fire Back in Tupac T-Shirt Lawsuit

9/22/2017 12:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie and Kendall Jenner have just fired back in the lawsuit where a guy who owns a photo of Tupac is going after the women claiming they ripped him off and plastered the image on the t-shirts they were hawking.

Kylie and Kendall say renowned photog Michael Miller has no right to sue because he himself committed some sort of fraud in copyrighting the photo. They say he's neither the author nor creator of the photos. They don't further explain, but it sounds like they're alleging he misrepresented ownership when he filed with the U.S. Copyright Office.

And there's this ... the women claim he's only entitled at best to "thin copyright protection" because his legal rights to the photo are so minimal it doesn't deserve full protection.

That all said, Kylie and Kendall removed the t-shirt from their online store.

NFL's Aldon Smith Strikes Plea Deal In DUI Hit and Run Case

9/22/2017 11:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Oakland Raiders star Aldon Smith has pled no contest to hit and run stemming from a 2015 incident ... TMZ Sports has learned

As we previously reported, Smith was arrested on August 6, 2015 for DUI -- after cops say he smashed into a parked car and then fled the scene. He later returned to the scene of the crash where officers gave him a field sobriety test and arrested him on suspicion of drunk driving.

He initially pled not guilty to misdemeanor DUI and hit and run -- but now, we've learned he cut a deal with prosecutors in which he pled no contest to hit and run and the DUI charge was dropped.

He was sentenced to 20 days in jail -- but the judge is allowed him to do residential treatment in lieu of spending time behind bars. Residential treatment is essentially "rehab" at a facility. He was also ordered to complete anger management. 

Smith is also forbidden from driving with ANY amount of alcohol in his system. He's also not allowed to go to bars or pubs or anywhere alcohol is the primary commodity for sale.

During the case, the judge also found he violated probation from another case and was sentenced to 90 days in jail -- but again, he was allowed to do residential treatment instead. 

The Santa Clara District Attorney's Office tells TMZ Sports all of Smith's required residential treatment sentence has been completed.

9/22/2017 11:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sisters Amelia and Delilah Hamlin -- their parents are Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna -- have things in common with Bella and Gigi Hadid that go beyond their blonde and brunette hair, but the gals say there's absolutely no competition.

The sisters have been getting compared a lot ... both their moms are 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' stars and they model. In fact when we got the Hamlins -- Amelia, 16, the brunette, and Delilah, 19, the blonde -- at LAX Thursday they were off to Milan for fashion week.

They were super cool when we asked about the comparisons, and while Amelia's hoping to follow Gigi and Bella's footsteps on the runway, Delilah points out she's got aspirations that set her apart from the Hadids.

EXCLUSIVE

J.R. Smith was asked about LeBron James ditching the Cavs ... and went COMPLETELY NUCLEAR -- telling the guy who brought it up to get the "f*ck outta here!"

It all went down outside Poppy in L.A. -- one of the hottest new restaurants in West Hollywood -- when a photog hit a nerve by asking if LeBron was gonna leave Cleveland (again) after this season.

Smith, one of Bron's Cavs BFFs, wasn't havin' it -- ripping the dude (not our guy) to shreds ... before blowing up over a question on The King joining the Lakers, specifically. 

Photog: "LeBron's gone man. Deal with it." 

J.R.: "LeBron's still here. He's still here."

Photog: "You think LeBron's gonna come to L.A.?

J.R.: "I think LeBron's gonna be wherever the f**k he wanna be at!"

The best part of the video is when J.R. fashion shames the photog for wearing a striped hoodie. It's legitimately funny stuff.
