Kodak Black In Solitary Confinement

3/16/2018 9:48 AM PDT

Kodak Black is in solitary confinement ... TMZ has learned.

It appears from legal docs he was taken out of general population after he used the prison phone to make a 3-way call which is prohibited by prison rules.   He was given 30 days in the hole for that violation.  

The rapper -- who is currently behind bars in Florida -- filed legal docs asking the judge to allow him to have his tutor visit while he is in solitary because he wants to get his GED. In docs, filed by attorney Bradford Cohen and obtained by TMZ, Kodak also asks for access to a laptop and adds prior to getting jailed, he was studying for his GED.

The judge has yet to rule. 

Eric Trump Oh, Crepe!!! My Brother's Getting Divorced

3/16/2018 7:45 AM PDT

Eric and Lara Trump looked sullen Thursday at a crêpe restaurant in Aspen ... just as Donald Trump Jr.'s wife filed for divorce.

Eric and Lara grabbed some grub at Crêperie du Village during an early night out.

As we reported, Eric's brother Donald couldn't make his marriage work, in large part because Vanessa hated politics and the public eye. We're told the last straw was when someone sent an envelope containing white powder to their home.

In sharp contrast, Lara loves politics and the spotlight ... she's a senior adviser in Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign.

Fred Couples Look Out, Augusta ... Tiger Woods Is Back, Baby!

3/16/2018 6:51 AM PDT

Golf legend Fred Couples says the old, dominant Tiger Woods is here to stay -- and he thinks it's FREAKIN' AWESOME.

"Oh, Tiger's back ... I love it," 58-year-old Fred told TMZ Sports at LAX. "I have a great opinion on Tiger."

You'd think Couples would be a little threatened by his resurgence ... but Fred's so happy to see vintage Tiger crushing the green, all he could do was gush about him.

Of course, we had to ask Couples the question on everyone's mind -- can Tiger end his Majors drought and collect his 5th green jacket?!

Fred -- who famously won the Masters back in '92 -- is definitely giving Tiger a good shot at Augusta ... AND pulling double duty as a player-coach at the President's Cup!! 

Stan Lee Missing Pooch Found & Returned By NFL Legend Jim Brown!!!

3/16/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Stan Lee needed a real-life superhero to find and return his lost dog. Enter the immortal football legend, Jim Brown, who proved not all heroes wear capes.

Sources close to Stan tell TMZ ... the comic book legend's Mini Pomeranian, Charlotte, went missing last week, though it's unclear how she got loose. In any case, Stan's peeps canvassed the Hollywood Hills neighborhood where he lives and his business partner Keya Morgan posted "Lost Dog" flyers everywhere.

A few days passed, but the posters garnered zero leads ... leaving Stan resigned to the idea Charlotte was gone for good. But, not so fast.

We're told the NFL Hall of Famer and his wife, Monique -- who live about a mile away from Stan -- found Charlotte in their yard ... scared with no collar. The couple sprung into action ... first firing off an email to a bunch of their neighbors, but that fetched no clues.

The Browns were undeterred, and brought Charlotte to a vet, who found a microchip planted near her neck, but, again, no luck there either because the chip wasn't registered.

The Browns then went old school and canvassed several neighborhoods and BAM ... they saw the posters, called the number and just like that, Charlotte was reunited with Stan. 

No word on whether Jim gets a reward!

Angie Stone to Bruno Mars $how $ome Re$pect

3/16/2018 7:50 AM PDT

Angie Stone says Bruno Mars has a lot of growing up to do, but ain't hard to read between the lines ... she wants him to pay up.

We got the R&B singer Thursday in the ATL and asked her about her rap group, The Sequence, suing Bruno and producer Mark Ronson back in December ... alleging their hit single, "Uptown Funk," is a ripoff of The Sequence's 1979 single, "Funk You Up."

Check it out ... Angie claims Bruno admitted "Uptown Funk" was inspired by "Funk You Up," and insists she ain't trying to bash Bruno, but wants him to show some respect. Translation: Show me the money!!!

As TMZ first reported ... The Sequence is asking for a jury trial and unspecified amount of money from Bruno. Angie's lawsuit ain't the first against Bruno for the same song. Zapp and Roger Troutman made similar allegations back in September.

BTW ... we know our photog screwed up ... Mark Ronson was not a DJ in the '70s -- he was barely born.   

Josh Norman Alex Smith Is 'Underrated'

3/16/2018 6:07 AM PDT

Josh Norman is already getting behind his new QB -- telling TMZ Sports he feels Alex Smith is "underrated" for everything he's done in his career. 

We spotted the Washington Redskins star cornerback in Atlanta and asked how he felt about the big quarterback moves in the NFL ... including his old QB Kirk Cousins getting an $84 million deal with the Vikings. 

Norman looked a little bummed out (why not? he's a good quarterback) but explained, "It's business. Everything is business."'

He also explained why Cousins is worth every single penny. 

By the way ... Norman -- super nice guy. 

Ray J & Princess Love Baby Registry Screams ... It's a Girl!!!

3/16/2018 12:50 AM PDT

Ray J and Princess Love are having a baby, and they've kept the sex of the kid under wraps -- but if you peep the registry they got for their shower ... it's pretty clear they're having a girl.

Ray and Princess' baby registry from Petit Tresor is littered with pink -- from onesies to cribs and literally everything in between -- so you can kinda only come to one logical conclusion. 

The gifts ain't cheap either. A baby basket made of cashmere runs about $2,800, while a travel crib costs about $300. A lot of outfits range between $25 and $200 ... and a damn rocking sheep (horses are out apparently) will set their guests back nearly $1,000!

Speaking of the actual baby shower ... sources tell us Ray J and Princess Love are hosting it this weekend in L.A. at a top-of-the-line hotel, and they're not skimping on expenses. We're told the whole thing ended up costing more than $250,000.

As we reported ... Ray J announced Princess was pregnant this past fall. The kid's due sometime this summer. 

Anything for baby ... girl.

Logic Yeah, He's Gettin' Paid But, It Ain't $30 Mil

3/16/2018 12:40 AM PDT

Logic has every reason to be flying high after inking a new deal with Def Jam Records -- but he should come down to cloud 8 ... or 7, 'cause he isn't making nearly as much as he claims.

Logic's been making headlines this week with his new "Bobby Tarantino II" and after doing an interview with "Beats 1" host Zane Lowe, during which he said he'd recently signed a new contract for $30 million. 

Sources tell us the rapper's contract was, in fact, restructured to get him more dough, but it wasn't for $30 mil.

Even if he landed in the tens of millions, that's still a good chunk of change and obviously nothing to turn down. The rapper's been having a ton of fun with interviews since the project's release, so it's possible he's just trolling everyone.

Logic would have you believe Def Jam cut him a seriously fat check ... for no less than $20 mil, as he rapped on his new mixtape, "Bobby Tarantino II.'

Maybe the line just worked for his rhyming pattern, but bottom line is ... in real life, the numbers just don't add up. 

We reached out to a rep for Def Jam ... so far, no word back. 

Snapchat We Need Domestic Violence Help After Rihanna Ad Backlash

3/16/2018 12:30 AM PDT

Snapchat is doing crisis management after getting called out by Rihanna for allowing an ad to run on the social media platform that poked fun of her domestic violence incident at the hands of Chris Brown.

A rep from the National Network to End Domestic Violence tells TMZ they were contacted by Snapchat Thursday asking if the social app could bring an NNEDV member onto its board.

The NNEDV rep we spoke to said their role will be to educate the Snapchat staff on domestic abuse and what's appropriate to post, so they don't make similar mistakes again. 

Rihanna blasted the ailing social media platform for running an ad for a game app called "Would You Rather?" that disturbingly asked: Would you rather "Slap Rihanna" or "Punch Chris Brown?"

People were quick to call Snapchat tone deaf, and Snapchat rapidly made a mea culpa, calling the ad  "disgusting" and admitting they made a "terrible mistake" by not putting the kibosh on it during the reviewing process.

Gervonta 'Tank' Davis I'll Whoop Any UFC Guy, Just Like Floyd ... Hit Me Up, Dana!

3/16/2018 12:20 AM PDT

Floyd Mayweather's protege is gunnin' for the Octagon, too -- and if he gets the chance to cross over, he says he'll beat ANY UFC FIGHTER in his division.

Boxing star Gervonta "Tank" Davis -- the co-headliner for Mayweather vs. McGregor -- has been going back-and-forth with a bunch of UFC guys on social media ... after hinting he'd be down for an MMA fight like his mentor.

We caught up with Tank to see if he's really down -- and he let us know what's up.

"If the opportunity's up for grabs then I'm definitely willing to fight any one of them guys near my weight class," Davis told TMZ Sports. "Dana White, I'm waiting on your call, baby."

FYI, Gervonta fights at 130 pounds -- around the same weight as killers like Demetrious Johnson, Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw.

As for Floyd -- Tank told us why he thinks a Conor rematch could be in the cards ...

NBA YoungBoy Bails Outta Jail In GF Assault Case

3/15/2018 4:08 PM PDT

NBA YoungBoy finally got sprung after spending more than 2 weeks behind bars for allegedly beating his girlfriend ... TMZ has learned.

The 18-year-old Louisiana rapper posted $75,000 bail Thursday around 1 PM to get released from Ware County Jail in Georgia. TMZ broke the story ... YoungBoy was busted in Florida on Feb. 24 on a warrant for kidnapping, and then transferred to GA.

Surveillance video from a Waycross, GA hotel showed YoungBoy slamming his girlfriend, Jania, and dragging her back into their room -- hence, the kidnapping warrant. Jania told police they were only playing around.

Cops didn't buy her version of events, and YoungBoy was eventually booked for felony kidnapping, as well as aggravated assault.

A judge had initially denied him bail, but that changed Monday at a second hearing, where the judge set his bail amount.

'Crazy Alien' Dog Spun Violently Hurled Into Icy River

3/15/2018 2:35 PM PDT

A dog on a movie set was put in a cage, violently spun around and dropped into freezing cold waters ... and nothing about it was pretend.

Sources on the set of "Crazy Alien" tell us the scene, shot in China in November, featured a German Shepherd hoisted high above the ground in the cage. According to the script, the dog was captured by aliens. 

You see in the clip -- provided by PETA -- the cage turns around with considerable ferocity before being hurled into a nearby river. We're told the scene was repeated multiple times until the director was satisfied.

Our sources onset say the dog was shaken up after the stunt, but did not appear to be injured. 

Matthew Morrison, who starred in "Glee," is featured as the star ... we're told he was not onset when the scene was shot. 

TMZ broke the story ... a terrified German Shepherd was placed in turbulent waters on the set of "A Dog's Purpose" and the video we posted triggered a torrent of criticism.

We've reached out to "Crazy Alien" honchos and Morrison's team ... so far, no word back. 

Broncos' Brandon Marshall All NFL Players Support Kaepernick

3/15/2018 3:54 PM PDT

The owners might be scared ... but virtually all the players in the NFL support Colin Kaepernick and want him back in the league ... this according to Denver Broncos LB Brandon Marshall.

Marshall has been tight with Kaep since college and told the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs tonight on FS1) that he's 100% confident C.K. is ready to compete with the best in the world.

But Marshall doesn't think Kaep's job status has anything to do with his skill -- it's the owners who are too afraid to stand up for the QB.

As far as the players go, Marshall says everybody he's spoken with in the league has voiced support for Kaepernick ... and wants to see him back in the NFL where he belongs.
