Porsha Williams Kandi Took a Low Blow at Me! I'm No Bigot, But I'll Re-Apologize

2/23/2017 1:25 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0223-porsha-williams-kandi-burruss-TMZ-01Porsha Williams thinks Kandi Burruss is taking shots at her just to fire up the LGBTQ community over some ancient video, for which Porsha's already apologized.

Porsha tells TMZ she's extremely disheartened Kandi would stoop low and bring the word "hate" into the mix while referencing her church sermon from 10 years ago. She claims it was taken out of context, and stands by her former apology for the video.

Kandi told one of our photogs she thinks Porsha doesn't love herself, because she attacked the gay community in the sermon even though she's had lesbian experiences ... which came out on 'RHOA.' 

Porsha says Kandi should stop trying to make trouble ... especially because she already did a mea culpa, saying ... "I believe we are all God's children ... although some people judge others by race, gender, status, religion, or sexual orientation, we should ALL have the right to serve God."

She says she stands by those words today, no matter what Kandi thinks.

Ezekiel Elliott Best Friend's Felony Gun Charge Dropped ... For Now

EXCLUSIVE

Prosecutors have dropped the felony gun charge against Ezekiel Elliott's best friend -- at least for now -- after he allegedly tried to bring a loaded gun into an Ohio bar this past weekend.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Alvarez Jackson was arrested in front of the Park Street Patio bar in Columbus on Friday night. Ezekiel was spotted with cops during the incident but he was NOT arrested, detained or accused of any wrongdoing.

Jackson -- who's been described by Sports Illustrated as Zeke's "best friend" -- was facing up to 5 years in prison on the illegal weapons charge.

A spokesperson for the Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney's Office tells TMZ Sports ... police have not provided them with a "felony file" yet -- so they had to drop the case. 

A judge has signed off on the dismissal of the gun charge -- but we're told cops are still investigating and a felony indictment is still possible in the future. 

Bottom line ... he's not exactly off the hook just yet. 

Paula Patton Robin Wined and Dined Our DCFS Social Worker

2/23/2017 11:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0223-paula-patton-robin-thicke-TMZ-01Paula Patton just made an explosive claim in her raging custody war with Robin Thicke ... taking the social worker charged with protecting their son to a fancy dinner.

Paula just filed docs -- obtained by TMZ -- alleging Robin and his attorney initiated a bunch of back-channel communication with the Department of Children and Family Services staff ... including a dinner where Robin allegedly wined and dined a case worker. She's even specific, claiming it was an expensive sushi dinner.

According to the docs ... Paula's also accusing Robin of falsely reporting to law enforcement she had kidnapped Julian. She says Robin tampered with the custody order to make it look like she was kidnapping their son.

Paula thinks Robin was trying to embarrass and humiliate her by having cops arrest her in front of Julian.

TMZ broke the story ... DCFS is investigating claims Robin has engaged in excessive physical discipline and he can only see Julian with a court appointed monitor.

Robin's camp tells us Paula's claim is bogus ... yes, he went to Nobu with Julian and the DCFS worker accompanied them because the judge ordered that a monitor be present for all visits. But the rep says the DCFS worker did not eat or even sit at their table. The rep also says Robin only contacted police once last month when Paula had gone MIA for 10 days.

Darius McCrary My Wife Burned Me with Iron Judge Orders Her to Stay Away

2/23/2017 11:12 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0223-darius-mccrary-tmz-tammy-brawner-twitterDarius McCrary says his wife is lying ... and HE was the one who was attacked by HER with a flat iron to his chest.

Tammy Brawner claimed in legal docs Darius brutalized her 2 weeks ago ... hitting her in the head with his forearm and throwing objects at her, all in front of their 18-month-old daughter.

In new legal docs requesting a restraining order, obtained by TMZ, Darius says the way it went down ... she became verbally abusive before hurling the iron his way, burning his chest and causing a 2nd degree burn.

He says she has a history of violence and he's had to call the cops 3 times. He says she's threatened him with a knife.

Darius puts a theory in his legal docs. He says Tammy -- a former Harlem Globetrotter -- is "desperate for stardom" and he's worried she'll neglect their daughter to achieve newfound fame.  He also says she's super competitive with him and jealous of his fame.

Now get this ... a judge granted Darius' request for a TRO and ordered Tammy to move out of the family house. But she also got a TRO which required him to pack his bags and leave.

EXCLUSIVE

Detroit Lions star Golden Tate is DEFENDING Jameis Winston -- saying he understands the message the QB was trying to send to elementary school kids ... and it was NOT a sexist one.

"I personally understand what he was saying," Tate tells TMZ Sports.

"He's saying, 'Hey men, lead your families. Step up when you see something that's not going right. When you see someone abusing a woman or verbally abusing a woman or something like that, stand up.' That's all he's saying I think. I mean, I get it."

Tate says people should focus on Winston's bigger message -- that all kids can achieve their goals in life if they work hard enough.

"Keep it up, Jameis. Keep balling and keep changing this world. People are always gonna misunderstand you."

EXCLUSIVE

0222-kanye-west-kylie-jenner-tmz-instgramKanye West wants to go head-to-head with his famous sister-in-law ... diving head first into the cosmetic biz dominated by Kylie Jenner.

Kanye's filed legal docs declaring his intention to produce DONDA brand makeup, perfumes, lotions and other cosmetics. Donda, of course, is Kanye's beloved mom who passed away in 2007.

He'll be up against some stiff family competition. Kylie's cosmetics sell out within minutes ... some resell on eBay for 10 times the retail value.  

Kanye's application to snag the DONDA cosmetics line is currently being processed but our sources say at this time he's only filed the paperwork in case something develops. 

He's made it clear ... Kanye wants to be the new Martha Stewart, creating a lifestyle brand that includes credit cards, cars, wallpaper screens, furnishings, video games, amusement parks, hotels, fitness centers and healthy fast food.

So which one's gonna give Kim lip?

'The Ring' Star Daveigh Chase Questioned by Cops in Death Investigation

2/23/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0222-daveigh-chase-tmz-02Daveigh Chase got busted after rushing a dying man to the hospital -- but her arrest has nothing to do with his death ... well, almost nothing.

Daveigh, the voice of Lilo in "Lilo & Stitch," dumped the guy outside an L.A. hospital in the wee hours of Feb. 15, and immediately bounced ... according to our law enforcement sources. He was pronounced dead after hospital staffers found him.

We're told someone told police Daveigh had been hanging out with the guy in the hours before his death. When cops ran her name, they found an outstanding warrant, and arrested her early Wednesday. 

Our sources say Daveigh -- who was also the creepy chick in "The Ring" -- is NOT a suspect in the man's death. We're told cops are treating it as a possible overdose, and Daveigh says she was merely trying to get him help at the hospital.
