Chris Rock Mystery Girl's Dad Says She Was Not Adopted ... Mum on Money

11/26/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-chris-rock-ntombi-splashThe biological father of the 7-year-old girl who lived with Chris Rock and his estranged wife for 7 years tells TMZ the Rock family never adopted the little girl, but he refuses to say if any money changed hands.

Crispen Khanyile says his ex-girlfriend gave birth to Ntombi on February 23, 2008 ... this according to a private investigator's report commissioned by an interested party in the case. According to the report, both Crispen and the mother, Precious Ndebele, were unemployed at the time, living on the outskirts of Johannesburg.

The couple had 2 other kids and it appears the situation was increasingly desperate. When the private investigator interviewed Precious last year, she said she was living in a slum and selling secondhand clothes on the streets. The investigator said the conditions were "not conducive for human living." 

Crispen would not discuss the arrangement with the adoptive parents, but simply said we should speak with Malaak, Chris' estranged wife.  

It's interesting ... the P.I. says Crispen told him last year Ntombi was living with adoptive parents in the U.S., but when we spoke with Crispen on Wednesday, it was clear ... there was NO adoption.

As we reported, Ntombi has been living in the U.S. with the Rock family on a visitor visa, requiring her to return to South Africa once a year. Chris has not seen the girl since he split with Malaak and we're told he believes she did something shady to get Ntombi into the U.S.

And one final twist ... Malaak's lawyer just broke his silence and said his client is actively trying to legally adopt Ntombi. He did not say when the process started or what has taken so long.

'NCIS' Star Busted For DUI

11/26/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-michael-weatherly-getty"NCIS" star Michael Weatherly ended up on the other side of the law when LAPD busted him for DUI. 

Law enforcement sources tell us Weatherly was stopped for speeding earlier this month around 1 AM in Hollywood. We're told officers suspected he'd been drinking and after running tests, determined his BAC was well above the legal limit. Weatherly spent nearly 15 hours behind bars.

The L.A. City Attorney charged him with two counts of DUI last week and if convicted, Weatherly faces a max of six months in jail and $1,000 in fines -- though jail time's highly unlikely since it's his first offense.  

We've reached out to Weatherly for comment ... so far, no word back.

Lil Wayne Sued Where Are My Panties? T-Shirt Model is Pissed

11/26/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


That hot woman on Lil Wayne's Trukfit clothing gear is accusing the rapper of snatching her image ... because she NEVER agreed to work with his company, and thinks he represents "misogyny."

Shanise Taylor is suing Weezy, and in the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- she admits posing for a 2011 photo session. She says she's not a professional model, and when the photog sent her the shots she figured that was the end of that. 

Then this year, she saw one of the pics pop up on a shirt made by Trukfit, a Weezy clothing line. In her suit, she even says Weezy's team doctored the photo to make it look like she wasn't wearing underwear.


Taylor says she never signed off on the shirts using her bod -- and, furthermore, she never would want her image "on apparel associated with misogyny and violence."

Taylor retained the Mase Lara law firm in Miami to take on Weezy. She claims she's been humiliated, and wants the shirts to disappear, plus an unspecified amount of damages for her troubles.

A rep for Lil Wayne had no comment.

Shane Mosley's Wife I'M NO BIGAMIST ... Sues Boxer For Defamation

11/25/2015 4:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-shane-mosley-tmzShane Mosley's wife is coming out swinging ... claiming the boxer DEFAMED her when he falsely claimed she was married to another man when they tied the knot in 2002 ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Jin Mosley just filed a lawsuit against Shane -- claiming he knew damn well her divorce from her previous husband Sanjay Dwivedi was granted in September 2002 ... two months before she married Shane.

Of course, this all became an issue when Shane began trashing Jin in public earlier this year -- telling multiple media outlets, including TMZ, that his marriage to Jin was bogus from the start because she was already hitched

Jin admits there's a weird wrinkle to all of this -- because Sanjay got a second divorce judgment in 2006 for unknown reasons ... which may have confused Shane. 

Still, Jin says Shane should have known the 2006 judgment was irrelevant because he saw official documentation which showed the divorce was granted by a judge in 2002.  

Jin says Shane has destroyed her reputation -- and now she wants damages ... as in lots of money.

Probably smart.

Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone Legal Docs Claim Mental Incompetence ... But Healthy Sexual Appetite

11/25/2015 9:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

124_sumner-redstone_TMZViacom Chairman and CEO Sumner Redstone is in the middle of a legal war, with his ex-lover/caregiver fighting in court to regain control over decisions that will keep him alive ... and her arguments involve sex.

Manuela Herzer claims in legal docs she was once romantic and for a long time a close friend and confidant with the 92-year-old Redstone -- who also started Midway Games which produced Mortal Kombat -- and in September of this year he chose her to make medical decisions on his behalf.   

Herzer claims things changed radically just one month later when Redstone's health and mental state really deteriorated. She claims Redstone's people threw her out of his home and she no longer had the power to make medical decisions.

Herzer now claims Redstone was in such bad shape mentally he did not have the capacity to strip her of the power he gave her just a month earlier.

In her docs, Herzer suggests a marker showing Redstone's mental deterioration was when he started ignoring doctors orders. She says he "demands, to the extent he can be understood, to engage in sexual activity every day, even though Dr. Gold has repeatedly recommended that he abstain from daily sexual activity."

The docs also claim Redstone can't write, his signature is almost a straight line, "appearing as if someone moved the paper under his pen," he has "spontaneous crying spells" and can only converse in "brief grunted responses."

An attorney for Redstone tells us, "Ms. Herzer's claim that she filed this lawsuit out of concern for Mr. Redstone is preposterous."  They added, "It proves only that Ms. Herzer will stop at nothing to pursue her personal financial agenda."

A judge has yet to rule. 

Master P I CAN BEAT KOBE ... In 1-On-1

11/25/2015 11:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Master P's throwing more shade at Kobe Bryant -- telling TMZ Sports he's old, he should retire ... and he's pretty confident he'd SMASH the Lakers superstar in a game of 1-on-1. 

P was handing out turkeys to families in need in Watts when we asked how he felt about Kobe ... who's been struggling mightily this season.  

"I think that father time caught up with him," P said ... while telling us the Mamba should hang up the sneaks for good. 

And then there's this ... P -- who had 2 preseason stints with NBA teams back in the day -- told us he thinks he could ball Kobe up in a 1-on-1 game ... and he wasn't joking. 

Tensions have been high with these two this year -- especially after P publicly blamed Kobe for not helping Lamar Odom get a new contract with the Lakers ... criticism that Kobe didn't take kindly to. 

So, when's the game? Maybe April ... Lakers probably won't have anything going on around then.
