Kim & Kanye Baby Crisis ... We Need a Name!!

12/1/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-kim-kardashian-kanye-west-TMZ-01Time's running out for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West -- less than a month from the birth of their 2nd child ... and they have no idea what to name the kid.

Sources tell us the couple's discussed dozens of names, but they're just not in love with anything they've come up with so far. 

Might seem weird for a prolific producer like Kanye to have writer's block, but we're told the struggle is coming up with something unique -- and as we first reported, directions are off the table. Also, it's their first son ... which means a lot to both of them.

Our sources say Kim's worried it could come down to them just getting inspired once the little guy arrives. He's due on Christmas day, but we're told mom feels like he's coming early.

Tick-tock ... 

Future Sued For Bailing On Concert ... Rapper Claims Commas Were Messed Up

12/1/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-future-tmz-01Future is being sued by a promoter who claims he lost more than $150k when the rapper pulled out of a concert, but sources close to Future claim he walked because the deal was shady.

In his lawsuit, Robert Caillier says he gave Future's camp a $15k advance to perform a Louisiana gig back in August 2014, but Future was a no-show ... causing Caillier to lose his anticipated $150k profit, plus the advance. 

Sources close to Future say he did show up, and even performed one song, but was pulled offstage by his management after they realized Caillier didn't have the balance of his payday. The docs don't mention how much Future was owed, but as we reported ... he typically gets at least $150k for a show.

Caillier is suing for $150k and his deposit back.

Howie Long 'I've Had Head Trauma ... But Nothing Significant'

12/1/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

They're 3 scary letters ... but Howie Long says when it comes to CTE, the NFL is doing "as good a job as you can" in preventing players from suffering brain injuries on the field.

CTE is a hot topic in the NFL at the moment, especially with Will Smith's "Concussion" movie about to hit theaters ... and Frank Gifford's family revealing he had been diagnosed with the disease before he died. 

Long told us he experienced "some head trauma" during his 13 year career -- but "nothing significant" -- and seemed more concerned for players like Gifford who took bigger hits as a running back and a WR.  

But looking forward, Long says he likes what the NFL has done to try to protect players -- which is a big deal since Howie currently has 2 kids in the league. 

The Game Scores Puppy Bro ... To Fetty Wap's Bitch

12/1/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-the-game-new-puppy-dog-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01The Game and Fetty Wap are related ... through their dogs.

Game just dropped $5k on a male American Bully puppy from Different Breed Kennels, the same Cali breeder where Fetty Wap picked up his little girl pooch, Trap Queen.

1128-fetty-wap-dog-instagramOwner Tyrone Carter says Game and Fetty Wap's dogs are from the same litter. He says he approached Game about the pooch when they met in an L.A. strip club. 

We're told the name is Makaveli ... an homage to Tupac. Game hasn't picked up the 3-month-old pup yet -- he's still prepping his house. We're guessing that means hiding his Jordans.

2 Chainz Victorious in 'THOT' Lawsuit

12/1/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-2-chainz-GETTY-01The great 2 Chainz "THOT" war of 2015 is officially over -- and the judge's decision might mean it's open season on THOTs everywhere. 

A federal judge in North Carolina tossed out Christine Chisholm's lawsuit. As we've reported, she sued Mr. Chainz for $5 million after he called her a "THOT" -- short for "that ho over there" -- repeatedly in a now infamous video of her backstage. The clip went viral, naturally.

In his ruling, the judge said calling someone a "THOT" does not rise to the level of "extreme or outrageous conduct."

Translation: Sticks and stones might break your bones, but words ... ain't gonna get you a quick $5 mil. Sorry, THOTs.

Master P Battle Over Kids Getting Abusive ... Estranged Wife Claims

11/30/2015 5:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-master-p-sonya-miller-INSTAGRAM-TMZ-01The war between Master P and his estranged wife Sonya Miller has reached a new level -- she's accusing him of verbal and physical abuse ... while plotting to turn their kids against her.

Miller was granted a temporary restraining order against P back in October, and a hearing is scheduled for Tuesday to make the order permanent. 

According to court documents, Miller claims P has "brainwashed" their kids to go against her and used his money and power to wield influence over them. She also describes an incident from "long ago" where Master P allegedly hit her in the face and dragged her across the floor. She says she ended up in the hospital.

As of now, Master P must stay 100 yards away from Sonya. We'll see what happens in court on Tuesday. He responded to the allegations, telling us ... "I will pray for my ex. This is a sad day for our family, but we will get past this. After 5 years, all her attorneys can come up with are false accusations."

P added, "I wish I had Cookie off the TV show [Empire] ... my ex wife is just Cookie Monster."

Greyhound Dog Org. Thin Greyhounds Are Okay ... Dog Org. Sign Off

11/30/2015 4:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1128-kylie-dog-snapchatAll the haters calling out Kylie Jenner for animal cruelty are barking up the wrong tree ... this according to no less an authority than the Italian Greyhound Club of America.

Experts with the club tell us the video Kylie posted of one of her pups is perfectly normal for the breed ... despite the flood of people accusing her of being a crappy pet owner.

A spokesperson for the Club says the pups are supposed to be lean, since they're bred for running -- and, in fact, a healthy Italian greyhound should show a hint of 3 ribs and its hip bones. 

The IGCA rep also points out the still photo from Kylie's video could be misleading ... since the dog could be taking a big breath which would exaggerate the rib cage.

Minnie Driver My Neighbor Pulled a Driveway Ambush

11/30/2015 3:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Minnie Driver's got serious beef with her nextdoor neighbor, and she says their confrontations have gotten so heated ... she had to go to court to force him to stay away.

Driver got a restraining order against Daniel Perelmutter in Los Angeles Superior court. In the docs, Driver says he told her to "f*** off and die" on several occasions in her driveway.

He jumped out in front of her car twice and she had to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting him ... according to the docs.

Driver says the most recent incident was a week ago when she had her 3 kids in the car. She says she got out of the car and Perelmutter cursed at her, and blew cigar smoke in the children's faces. She doesn't mention any motive for what she calls "aggressive conduct."

Perelmutter must stay 15 yards away from Driver and her kids ... at least until a hearing next month.

For his part, 74-year-old Perelmutter claims Minnie tried to run him down with her car. He admits there's tension between them -- due to an ongoing land dispute -- but claims Minnie's been even more aggressive than him.

Kardashian Family Photo Mystery Guy Identified ... I'm with Kanye!

11/30/2015 3:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-kardashian-thanksgiving-arrow-sakiya-INSTAGRAM-01Everyone chill ... the Kardashian/Jenner Thanksgiving family portrait was NOT photobombed -- turns out the random dude in camo is super tight with Kanye West.

Our Kardashian sources tell us the guy's name is Sakiya Sandifer and he's practically family. He grew up with Kanye in Chicago, and they co-authored "Thank You and You're Welcome" ... the 2009 book of sayings that inspired Kanye. He also wrote his own book, "Think Think Think and Think Again."

We're told the thoughtful guy happened to be in L.A. on biz, so Yeezy invited him for turkey dinner.

This wasn't his first rodeo with the fam -- Sakiya was in Kim and Kanye's wedding, and walked Kylie down the aisle.


Donovan McNabb BEGINS JAIL SENTENCE ... Behind Bars In AZ

11/30/2015 3:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Donovan McNabb is now Inmate #T231133 ... 'cause the ex-NFL star has officially begun his jail sentence in Arizona stemming from a DUI arrest back in June, TMZ Sports has learned. 

We've confirmed McNabb has turned himself in to begin his 18 day sentence ... sporting a fresh Nike jacket. 

But as we previously reported, McNabb will NOT spend his days in jail -- the judge granted him "work release" which means he can leave the facility to work during the day, but must return at night to sleep in a cell.  

McNabb was arrested on June 28th after crashing into a car that was stopped at a red light ... cops say his blood alcohol was more than TWICE the legal limit. 

It's McNabb's 2nd DUI conviction in 2 years ... and hopefully his last. 

Joseph Randle Hit With Criminal Charges ... In Casino Fight Incident

11/30/2015 3:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been charged with several misdemeanors stemming from his altercation with cops at a Kansas casino and faces jail time ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We broke the story ... Randle allegedly assaulted an officer at the Kansas Star Casino on Nov. 24th after he was kicked out of the place for being too drunk. 

Now, the County Attorney's Office in Sumner County, KS tells us he's been formally charged with 2 counts of disorderly conduct, 1 count of criminal trespass and 1 count of resisting arrest, the most serious of the charges.

If convicted on all counts, Randle faces up to 1 year behind bars. He's due back in court next month. 

FYI -- Randle is on probation in Frisco, TX for stealing cologne and underwear from a department store ... however, it's unclear if the new arrest will affect that case.  

Rick Fox Retire BOTH Of Kobe's Numbers ... He Deserves It

11/30/2015 12:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

#8 or #24 ... that's the issue the Lakers will face when it comes time to retire Kobe Bryant's jersey -- but Rick Fox says he has a better solution ... RETIRE 'EM BOTH!!!

The issue is that Bryant dominated in both numbers ... winning 3 NBA championships in #8 (2000, 2001, 2002) and 2 in #24 (2009, 2010).

It's a completely different situation from Michael Jordan ... who only rocked the #45 for 22 games before switching back to #23.

So, what should the Lakers do??

Fox says it's time for the team to break tradition and let Kobe become the first player with TWO numbers in the rafters.

Stay tuned ...

James Deen I'm Not a Rapist ... I'm Only Aggressive On Camera

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

1130-james-deen-tmz-01The aggressive James Deen you see in porn is just an act ... according to his friends, but he believes that on camera image is what led to him being accused of rape.

Deen -- one of the most famous male porn stars -- has been accused of sexual assault by at least two porn stars. One of them is his ex-girlfriend, Stoya, who says it happened off camera.


Our sources say Deen finds the on set allegation very odd ... since no one, among the numerous cast and crew members, reported him for any violent behavior -- plus, people on porn sets know more about limits than the average person.

We're told Deen feels his accusers are confusing his sexually aggressive characters in porn ... with the real him, who is not at all violent. 

The accusers have not gone to police yet. Deen has denied all the allegations, saying ... "I want to assure my friends, fans and colleagues that these allegations are both false and defamatory."
