Mandalay Bay Vegas Shooter's Room Off Limits ... So is Entire 32nd Floor

10/20/2017 3:56 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Las Vegas shooter's 32nd-floor suite at Mandalay Bay is still completely shut off to the public, and in fact ... the whole floor's on lockdown.

One of our guys hit up the hotel Friday to check out the situation with Stephen Paddock's room after reports the hotel planned to never rent it out again. This video shows you can't even get close to the suite.

Elevators won't allow guests to get off on the 32nd floor, and security guards are stationed in stairwells to block access.

Law enforcement sources tell us Vegas PD completed the investigation of the suite, and they've turned it back over to the resort -- but it's clear Mandalay Bay's not ready to let morbid sightseers gawk at it.

'Love and Hip Hop Hollywood' Drops Hazel-E!!! But Not Over Homophobic Rant, Axe Fell 2 Weeks Ago

10/20/2017 1:12 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Love and Hip Hop Hollywood" is done with Hazel-E -- she's been dropped from the hit show, but producers claim it's NOT because she said all gays should burn in hell.

A spokesperson for VH1 and the show's producers, Monami and Eastern, say they collectively decided not to pick up Hazel's option for the next season of 'LHHH' -- but the decision was made on Oct. 4. That's a full 2 weeks before Hazel and her boyfriend went on a heinously homophobic social media rant.

Sources connected to production tell us Hazel had already worn out her welcome by the time she made the remark about gays and the Bible. We're told she pissed off producers back in September, during the reunion show taping, which is why they pulled the plug.

As we reported, 'LHH' creator Mona Scott-Young was infuriated by Hazel's verbal attack, and made sure VH1 knew it ... perhaps to squash any possibility of bringing her back.

Usher's Herpes Lawsuit Not Everyone Wants a Piece of It

10/20/2017 1:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Usher's accuser, Quantasia Sharpton, is trying to add some ammo to her herpes lawsuit by questioning another woman who had sexual relations with the singer ... but that woman wants none of it.

In new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, a woman referred to as Jane Doe claims Quantasia is going after "extremely private and embarrassing information" about her sexual history with Usher and wants to drag her in for a deposition.

Jane Doe claims her private info was stolen and leaked without her consent, which is how Sharpton became privy to it and led to her seeking the depo.

According to the docs ... Jane Doe's sexual past and medical info has nothing to do with Sharpton's suit and would only serve to violate her right to privacy and humiliate her.

She makes it very clear -- she does not wish to join the club of Usher accusers ... and believes it would be unfair to be roped in to Sharpton's suit against her will.

Jim Carrey I Have Proof Deceased GF Phonied Medical Records to Extort Me

10/20/2017 12:44 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman who claimed she became suicidal after Jim Carrey gave her herpes created an elaborate extortion scheme with fake medical records to make it seem she was clean before she met Jim ... this according to new legal docs.

Carrey now claims Cathriona White -- who committed suicide in 2015 -- had herpes before they met, but needed to change the facts. So he says she got her friend's medical records showing a clean bill of health, and then altered them to make it appear the records were hers.

According to Carrey's new legal docs, White then presented the before and after medical records, claiming it was proof -- the only change was that she started having sex with him and got genital herpes.

Carrey claims in legal docs they have a smoking gun in the form of text messages from White to her friend ... asking the friend numerous times to go to Planned Parenthood to get her medical records and one of the text messages says, "I need to see the layout ... I will need to work on it before I give it to him."

The new docs were filed in connection with a lawsuit brought by White's husband and mother, who claim Carrey gave her the disease and that's why she killed herself.

Carrey's legal team just made an ultimatum ... either ante up non-forged medical records or admit she had multiple STDs before she even met the actor.

Michael Avenatti, attorney for Cathriona's estate, tells us Carrey's new claim is "complete and utter bulls**t. When the truth comes out, Mr. Carrey and certain of his advisers are going to be criminally prosecuted for their conduct in this case. They better buckle up."

Kim & Kanye Security Team Pulled Guns on Intruder

10/20/2017 11:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The guy who vandalized cars at the bottom of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's driveway learned a hard lesson ... through the barrel of a gun.

Sources connected with the incident tell us the man who broke into 3 cars early Friday morning at the end of their driveway was met with heavily armed Kardashian-West security. We're told it is now standard operating procedure for the family's hired muscle to brandish licensed weapons when an intruder invades the Bel-Air gated property.

Our sources say the second the vandal saw the weapons he scampered away into the darkness and cops are now on the hunt. 

The decision to brandish guns was made in direct response to the Paris robbery where armed gunmen tied Kim up, threw her in a bathtub and stole $10 million in jewelry.

We're told the security and safety of Kim and Kanye's family is a top priority and their team will hold nothing back to ensure that. 

Kevin Dillon Battles Ex Over Kid's Tuition I Can't Afford Private School!!!

10/20/2017 11:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Dillon's not going to fork over a dime to his estranged wife to send their daughter to private school, especially since he thinks public school is perfectly fine ... according to new legal docs.

The "Entourage" star says he can't afford to pay his ex, Jane Stuart, any more money for tuition for their daughter Ava -- who's heading into 6th grade -- because he's already paying child and spousal support and living off his savings.

The problem -- Jane believes Ava should attend a private school in Calabasas, where she's gone her whole life, but Kevin thinks a public school in Malibu with a "gold medal" ranking by U.S. News and World Report is more than sufficient ... not to mention more cost-effective.

Jane claims Kevin's out of touch with their daughter's needs ... and she doesn't want Ava to attend the Malibu school because of its alleged drug issues and cancer-causing agents on campus.

As we reported ... Dillon was already ordered to pay $3,174 a month in child support and $7,214 in monthly spousal support to Stuart.

'LHHH' Honcho Mona Scott-Young Hazel-E Must Go After Burning Gays Comment

10/20/2017 9:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" creator Mona Scott-Young is disgusted by Hazel-E's homophobic social media rant, and if she gets her way ... Hazel will be canned ASAP.

Sources close to the 'LHHH' executive producer tell TMZ ... she made it clear with VH1 she expects Hazel to get booted from the show for saying gays should burn in hell, but contrary to popular belief ... Mona doesn't get final say on personnel decisions.

Our sources say it's not just the homophobic rant that pissed her off ... Hazel's negative remarks about women of color have disgusted her as well.

We're told Mona's production company is not the only one involved with 'LHHH' so Hazel's fate will be a group decision -- but she's pressing the network hard to 86 her.

As we reported, Hazel told us she's sorry about her homophobic comments. Mostly.

Kim & Kanye Thief Trashes Kardashian Staff Car ... Gets Almost NOTHING

10/20/2017 9:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's staffer was hit by a crook who ransacked 3 vehicles at the end of their driveway and made a getaway ... but not before surveillance cameras captured the alleged perp.

According to law enforcement sources ... the theft went down around 4 AM PT Friday at their Bel Air mansion. We're told the suspect never entered the home, but trashed the cars at the end of the driveway. After all that ... we're told all he got was one iPhone, which belongs to one of Kim & Kanye's staffers. 

Our sources say security at the house spotted the guy and chased him off. We're told investigators were given this image -- from a surveillance system.

The guy didn't stop with the Wests. We're told he also hit their next door neighbor Kathy Griffin's staff. Again, he trashed a car at the end of the driveway and got a purse.

Guess he was disappointed ... since we're told the purse was ditched nearby.

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Porter and her friends have an interesting take on Lupita Nyong'o's encounter with Harvey Weinstein, and it's basically ... at least he included black women.

If that sounds harsh, just watch the clip.

Kim and co. were leaving Catch in WeHo when we asked them about Lupita's story -- that Weinstein pulled his massage move on her, and she had to flee when he tried to get naked.

Diddy's baby mama is definitely horrified, saying, "It's all bad." On the other hand, one of her friends said, "I need a black girl on that list."

Yep. Cringeworthy.

Here's 40 seconds of Jamie Foxx showing love to Dodgers ... right after busting out his Stephen A. Smith impression on the streets of L.A. -- and it's pretty hilarious. 

Foxx had appeared on ESPN's "First Take" early Thursday morning in full costume and makeup as "Cleveland A. Smith" ... Stephen's equally excitable brother. 

Hours after the show, he was still doing the Stephen A. voice -- "Ballers are gonna ball" -- before showing love to the Dodgers.
