Chris Rock Mystery 7-Year-Old Lived with Family on Pleasure Visa

24 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

1124-chris-rock-gettyThe 7-year-old South African girl who mysteriously began living with Chris Rock and his now estranged wife for years has been in the U.S. with the help of a visitor visa ... TMZ has learned. 

As TMZ reported, a little girl named Ntombi began living with Chris and Malaak in 2008, when she was just 6 months old. There is no evidence the Rock family ever adopted the child, but they treated her like a daughter, making her part of the family and enrolling her in school. 

Our sources say Ntombi entered the country on a B2 "visitor for pleasure" visa. The visa allows the visitor to stay in the U.S. for up to 1 year, after which time the visitor must go back to her country and fill out paperwork before coming back.  

We're told Ntombi and Malaak went back to South Africa every year and reconnected with the girl's biological family, which included a mom, a dad, a brother and a sister. We're told each time, Ntombi and Malaak returned to the U.S. in short order.

Sources connected with Chris say he has no idea if money ever changed hands from his family to Ntombi's parents. We tried reaching Malaak's lawyer, but never got a call back.

44 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

1124_the_game-kim_kardashian_instagram_paperThe Game is calling out Instagram ... saying he's the victim of a double standard because Kim Kardashian can flash her bare ass, but his junk's getting shut down.

We broke the story ... IG plans to delete his attempt to break the Internet -- the 2 famous shots of his manhood outlined in boxer briefs. Game tells us he had no idea the IG cops were busting him ... and he's shocked since the pics have been up for a month. 

It also doesn't add up for him since Kim K's IG is full of sexy photos, including her Paper cover and the naked pregnant shot where she's holding her boobs.

Game says no matter what Instagram does it won't can't change the fact he put a sizeable dent in the Internet -- plus, he's still very blessed. Respect.


The Gap Band Lawsuit I Dropped a Bomb on My Brother

54 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF


R&B legend "Uncle" Charlie Wilson is at war with his brother over just who exactly IS The Gap Band ... and who gets to keep making money off of the name. 

Ronnie Wilson filed a lawsuit claiming Charlie is derailing his efforts to launch a comeback tour. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Ronnie says he recently booked 2 big gigs -- one at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in NYC, and another at Howard Theatere in Washington, D.C.

Ronnie says after he sealed the deals, Charlie -- who left the band in 2009 -- had his people step in and somehow interfere with the bookings. Ronnie says both venues pulled the plug.

The elder Wilson points out his band existed for years before kid bro Charlie joined in '72. 


Ronnie says his new Gap Band stood to make more than $20k from the 2 gigs. He's suing for damages and to get the court to block Charlie from interfering with future bookings.

His point -- you might have been the lead singer, but this band is MINE, bro.

'Shahs' Star Jessica Parido Mike Can Keep His Money ... And the Stupid Diamond

11/24/2015 3:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


"Shahs of Sunset" star Jessica Parido wants to wash her hands clean of husband Mike Shouhed, and she's willing to give back her 4.5 carat rock to do it. 

Sources close to Jess tell us when she walked out on Mike in August she left with only two small bags and her engagement ring ... worth around $200k. She left behind their two dogs and her wardrobe (mostly purchased by Mike) because she wants nothing to do with him or his money.

Although the box for spousal support was checked on the divorce docs -- we're told it was a mistake on her lawyer's part ... since Jessica doesn't want a dime.

Jess and Mike were only married for 4 months when she walked out. As for the wedding gifts ... that might have to be sorted out in court, since they haven't yet discussed what to do with them. They haven't even sent 'thank you' notes yet!

We're told their split will be featured on the next season of 'Shahs.'

UFC's Bruce Buffer Hollywood Distracted Ronda

11/24/2015 9:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ronda Rousey didn't just have a lot on her plate when she was gearing up to fight Holly Holm -- she had a "full table" with movies, a book and endless PR work ... so says UFC announcer Bruce Buffer

Bruce -- the voice of the UFC -- wouldn't go as far to blame Ronda's loss on all of the distractions ... but he admits you can't give 100% of your focus to the Octagon with so much going outside of it. 

So, what'll happen if Ronda cuts out all of the other stuff and dedicates ALL OF HER LIFE to beating up Holly in the rematch

Chris Rock to Wife The Girl Who Lived with Us is NOT My Daughter

11/24/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-chris-rock-daughter-old-game-GETTY-01Chris Rock has not seen the 7-year-old girl who lived with him since she was an infant in more than a year ... and we're told it's because he believes his estranged wife Malaak did something shady to get her here in the first place.

It's a bizarre story ... and one that triggered an international investigation. Here's what we know. Back in 2008, a 6-month-old named Ntombi from South Africa began living with the Rock family. The girl stayed in the family house ever since. Ntombi was even enrolled in a New Jersey school.

Ntombi's biological parents reportedly were unemployed South Africans and somehow the kid ended up at the Rock home.

Everything changed last year when Chris and Malaak began divorce proceedings. We're told Chris maintained his relationship with his 2 biological daughters but hasn't seen Ntombi since the split.

Around the same time as divorce docs were filed, South African officials opened an investigation to determine how the child went from their country to the U.S., when there was no evidence of a legal adoption.

As for why he went radio silent with Ntombi ... sources connected to Chris say he never signed legal docs to adopt her, and bringing her over to the U.S. was all Malaak's doing.

As far as we can tell there was never an adoption. It's unclear how and why the biological parents allowed Ntombi to live with the Rock family for years. 

Chris' rep tells TMZ he does not have an adopted child. We tried reaching Malaak's lawyer, but did not get a return call.



Harry Styles I Fancy Jimmy Kimmel's Fanny

11/24/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-harry-styles-butt-grab-jimmy-kimmel-TMZ-01Harry Styles knows when you're onstage you're supposed to give performers a hand ... which may be why he grabbed Jimmy Kimmel's ass.

1123_kimmel_one_direction_front_gettyHarry and the rest of One Direction were guests on Kimmel's show Thursday and it all looked kosher from the front. What viewers didn't see was the ass grab from behind.

The performance was pretty epic BTW ... Hollywood Blvd was shut down for all the 1D fans ... one of whom snapped the butt pic. 

Looks like Kimmel's reflexes kicked in pretty quick ... he kept a straight face.

Holly Holm Ronda's Not On My Xmas List ... But We Can Be Friends

11/24/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Holly Holm says she's down to be post beatdown pals with Ronda Rousey ... but as far as Christmas is concerned ... the Rowdy one shouldn't be expecting anything under the tree from the new UFC queen.

Holly was out in NYC -- still glowing with victory -- when our guy got in some questions about the post fight relationship between her and Rousey ... basically, will there be one?

The two ladies seemed cool during the promotion for the fight ... but things got a little testy those last couple days following a scuffle at the pre-fight weigh in.

Check out the clip -- Holly leaves the door open for her and Ronda to pal around in the future ... but as for this holiday season ... it looks like she's going to skip being Rousey's Secret Santa.

It's okay, Ronda ... Holly's given you so much already ... feet, elbows, defeats ...

We kid.

Larry the Cable Guy Sues Gas Station ... Git-R-Done Belongs To Me!

11/24/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Larry the Cable Guy is suing a Mississippi gas station for jacking his famous "Git-R-Done" catchphrase and slapping it all over its storefront, highway billboards and even merchandise.

In his lawsuit, Larry says he has the trademark on his famous standup comedy tagline -- and the Giterdone gas station in Diamondhead, MS is trying to capitalize off his shtick. 

Larry says the gas station is confusing customers by putting its "Giterdone" on merch. He wants all the profits from that gear, and he wants the rest of their inventory with the phrase to be destroyed.

He's also pissed about Giterdone using "blue-collar, down home, southern-type language" in its advertising. Then again, it is in Mississippi.


Sherri Shepherd Keep Signing Child Support Checks ... Appeal DENIED!

11/24/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123_SHERRI-SHEPHERD-&-LAMAR-SALLY_TMZ_gettyTime for Sherri Shepherd to crack open that checkbook -- her last ditch effort to avoid paying child support to her ex was shot down in court.

Sherri had claimed her estranged husband Lamar Sally defrauded her by getting a surrogate to carry a baby for them. She thinks he did it only for the purpose of securing a fat child support check, once he knew they were divorcing.

Well, Lamar is going to get that check after all -- because an appeals court agreed with the lower court's decision that Sherri was fully on board with the surrogate plan and in fact, paid for most of the process.

Bottom line for Sherri, she'll continue with the terms of their settlement ... paying $4,100 per month until the infant hits 13 -- then it's $4,600.

We suggest auto-pay. Less fuss.
