XXXTentacion's Murder Detectives Key on Rapper Soldier Kidd's Gun Pic

6/21/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Investigators working on XXXTentacion's murder seem to be homing in on a Florida rapper who posted a pic of himself packing heat Monday, not far from the crime scene.

Soldier Kidd's been widely accused online of having possible involvement in XXX's shooting death -- mostly due to a photo of himself at Hook Fish & Chicken restaurant, which is 7 minutes from where X was killed.

In the pic, you clearly see a handgun in Kidd's lap, right next to his food. It was posted within an hour of X's shooting.

We're told detectives went to Hook Fish & Chicken late Monday to collect surveillance footage -- specifically of the time Soldier Kidd was there.

There's more -- according to the dispatch audio from the shooting, one of the 2 armed men was wearing a red mask. Kidd shared a photo of himself and a friend with a red mask in the front seat of his car.

The "Triple X" isn't necessarily a reference to XXXTentacion ... since Kidd recorded a mixtape with that title.

We're told cops have also collected security footage from the motorcycle shop where the shooting went down. Police haven't named any suspects, and Soldier Kidd has denied any involvement.

As we reported ... XXXTentacion was shot in the neck during an alleged robbery, and died instantly, according to a witness on the scene.

6/21/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tommy Lee is getting married on Valentine's Day 2019 and wants everyone to feel the love, even his estranged son, Brandon, who he still wants at his wedding.

Sources close to Tommy tell us he's planning on sending an invite to his eldest despite their drama over Father's Day. Y'know, Tommy called his sons "a**holes" and said they didn't value things ... then Brandon called Tommy an absentee father, and posted a vid of Tommy knocked out in March after their fight.

We're told Tommy's hoping time heals all wounds, with his wedding to Brittany Furlan still months away.

Our sources say Tommy thought he and Brandon put the KO behind them when he decided not to press charges. We're told Tommy only resorted to airing out their feud on social media because Brandon's blocked his number and emails. 

All that said, we're told Tommy still tells friends he loves Brandon, and wants him at the wedding.

6/21/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid is under investigation for battery after allegedly beating up a photographer outside Bev Hills hot spot, Mastro's Steakhouse ... TMZ has learned.

Rich was leaving Mastro's last week with a female friend, and jogged out the front door to a waiting car. Our sources tell us a photog asked Rich if that's how he ran from Lil Uzi -- with whom Rich has had beef.

We're told Rich beelined it to the photog and got into a heated argument -- then things got physical, with Rich allegedly punching the photog and hitting his camera. His female friend allegedly grabbed the camera when they bolted ... and law enforcement sources tell us the friend is under investigation ... for theft.

Of course, Rich's week got worse early Friday morning. TMZ broke the story ... he and his gf, Tori Brixx, were attacked during a home invasion robbery

'Lopez' Star Ray Diaz Busted for Domestic Violence

6/21/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Actor Ray Diaz -- who starred alongside George Lopez for one season on "Lopez" -- allegedly assaulted his GF and repeatedly prevented her from calling for help.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Diaz and his GF got into an argument that turned physical earlier this month at his Hollywood apartment. Diaz allegedly grabbed and pulled her so violently, she suffered neck scratches and bruising on her leg.

Our sources say Ray's gf tried to call 911, but he stopped her by grabbing the phone. That's when she made a last ditch effort -- and a pretty smart one -- by commanding Alexa to dial 911 for her. Unfortunately, we're told Ray unplugged the device.

The woman filed a police report 2 days later, and cops photographed her alleged injuries. Ray -- who appeared on "Celebrity Family Feud" with George and Oscar De La Hoya -- was arrested for domestic violence. He's out now on $50k bail.

We've reached out to Ray's camp but, so far, no word back.

Kyrie Irving Date Night with Chantel Jeffries ... Bieber's Ex-GF

6/21/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Seems Kyrie Irving and Chantel Jeffries really are a thing -- 'cause the two were spotted on a movie date together on Monday ... and we're told they looked like a couple. 

The NBA star and Justin Bieber's ex-girlfriend took in a flick at the iPic in Westwood, CA -- "Incredibles 2" -- and they held hands on the way out of the place. 

By the way, the iPic is a seriously fancy joint -- it's got a full wait staff, bar and kitchen menu and they serve you in your seat while you're watching the movie! 

The two were reportedly spotted in New York earlier this month -- but it's unclear if they were together or just hanging out. 

Jeffries -- a DJ -- has been linked to a bunch of stars, including The Weeknd and DeSean Jackson. She was also famously in the car when Bieber was arrested for his DUI back in 2014. 

Irving dated Kehlani back in the day -- but recently came out and said they're still good friends. 

'Sugar' Shane Mosley Sues Over Botched Elbow Surgery Claims Doc Attempted Cover-Up

6/20/2018 7:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Sugar' Shane Mosley went in for a quick surgery to fix his elbow pain, but ended up getting cut up and burned ... according to a new suit.

The 4-time world champion boxer claims he was training for a fight in March 2017, when he went to Dr. Gary Brazina about pain and clicking in his right elbow. He says the doc suggested arthroscopic surgery to fix it, and explained it would be relatively quick and painless, with plenty of time to recover for his fight.

According to the docs ... it didn't go as planned at all. Mosley says the surgery took hours longer than he was told, and Brazina revealed he had to "detach some ligaments and reattach them with screws." 

Mosley claims he developed a fever and rash the next day, and Brazina failed to tell him he also suffered a severe burn during his surgery ... which became infected.

What's worse -- the boxer claims his doc altered some pre-op paperwork to make it look like Mosley consented to a more invasive surgery than he did.

He's suing Brazina and the hospital where his surgery was performed for damages. We reached out to Dr. Brazina ... so far, no word back.

It's interesting -- Mosley reportedly chose to retire in 2017 due to the complications from this elbow surgery. Clearly ... he wants some payback for it.

EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna is fed up with YBN Almighty Jay's shady ways ... and that's why she dumped his ass.

Sources close to Blac Chyna tell TMZ ... she felt disrespected because the 18-year-old rapper was slipping into a few girls' DMs. She also claims he was hanging out with several chicks after performances. Did we mention he's 18?

On top of that, we're told BC and YBN got into lots of arguments lately. We're told that -- along with his wandering eye -- is why Chyna broke off the relationship about a week ago.

And there's this ... our Chyna sources say she thinks YBN knocked up a chick too. A source close to Jay tells us there's no confirmation yet that he's got a kid on the way.

Baby or not, we're told Chyna had enough and pulled the plug. 

On to the next one ...

Tyga Sued You've Got a Crisis in the Middle East! Hand Over the $141k

6/20/2018 3:29 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tyga pulled a double-cross in Dubai ... according to the agent who forked out good dough to get the rapper to appear there.

In the suit, the agent says he booked Tyga to perform at Club White back in April and a couple other venues in United Arab Emirates. The agent says Tyga got $120k plus $21k in airline tickets for him and his entourage.

According to the suit, however, Tyga was working with a rival club. The agent says Tyga didn't even try to hide it and, in fact, told them ... "White should give me an offer I can't refuse." The club nor the agent made any new offer, and Tyga ended up bailing ... but promised to refund the $141k the club paid him. 

Stop us if you've heard this before ... the agent says Tyga never paid his debt.

The agent is suing him for the $141k plus additional damages in excess of $600k for the profits lost when he skipped the gig.

The Oscar-winning actress was at LAX Wednesday, and told us she's cautiously optimistic about the executive order Trump just signed, reversing the policy he enacted last month. She didn't mince words ... blasting Trump for deliberately making a choice to destroy families' lives.

She's also fed up with politicians and talking heads blaming previous Presidents. Mira puts the blame squarely on 45. 

As we reported, the President signed the executive order to keep families together, but made it clear the "zero-tolerance" prosecution of illegal immigrants will continue.

Mira says she'll be watching to see what happens.

"He's just gotta keep the circle tight!" 

It's good advice -- but as we all know, easier said than done.
