We're told North was also with Mom, and Kourtney and her kids enjoyed the excursion as well ... which included a family ride on It's a Small World.

The Kardashian crew hits up Disneyland a lot for special occasions -- like Kourtney's birthday last month or Kim's bday in October -- but it seems like this time was just for some random fun.

No word yet if Kim's jacket's been added as a new park attraction.

EXCLUSIVE

One of the 3 women busted at Houston's says the restaurant's flat-out lying with its claim the women ignored warnings to leave before a security guard dragged them out.

Asia'h Epperson -- an actress and former "American idol" contestant -- told us she was shocked the police arrested her and her friends, instead of the guard. She's the one who shot the video of the alleged assault ... which now has T.I. on the warpath.

She says a Houston's staffer gladly let them use the restroom, and never asked them to leave prior to the violent incident.

Asia'h already has a lawyer, and it sounds like a lawsuit's in the offing. She also reacted to T.I. saying he's going Malcolm X on Houston's, and wants to shut down the whole chain.

As she put it ... he's battled the restaurant before and won.

We got the bishop in NYC Tuesday, where he was making the media rounds after his powerful sermon, hypothesizing on a world where "love is the way." He was getting swarmed by fans on the street ... people asking questions, and wanting selfies.

Our photog asks if he thought he'd get this much attention prior to his Royal Wedding appearance -- he says no, but doesn't mind making folks a little happy because of it. That jibes with what he told us Monday ... that his message of love wasn't sappy BS

He's also got some advice for any normies who aren't of Royal descent that might be tying the knot. Yep ... you guessed it.

Lil Xan Breaks Down His Mental Breakdown

5/22/2018 10:37 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Xan says he suffers from anxiety and that's what everyone saw on display when he keyed his whip ... but he's good now, and so is the G-Wagon.

We got the rapper Tuesday at LAX, and asked what led to his mental breakdown a couple weeks ago. You'll recall, LX kicked the crap outta his brand new Mercedes SUV and keyed the ride -- all while going off about being a slave to his management. He also bitched about having zero control of all the money he's making.

Lil Xan's definitely looking and feeling better now. He especially dug the Audrey Hepburn compliment our camera guy gave him. But, it's interesting, as LX started breaking down what drove him to key his car, his manager yelled from off-camera ... warning him not to say anything stupid.

Xan kept his cool and spilled some tea about his mental health.

Rich the Kid He Forced Me to Have 3 Abortions ... Estranged Wife Claims

5/22/2018 9:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid's estranged wife claims he attacked her numerous times and forced her to have abortions during their marriage.

Antonette Willis just filed new docs in their divorce, and in them she says the rapper got violent with her so many times ... it was common for police to be called to their house. On one occasion she says she had followed him to a hotel where he was meeting a woman -- and when he came home the next day they got into a fight.

Antonette says he grabbed her and hit her ... and things escalated when Rich's family came over, because his sister broke a window.

Rich and Antonette have 2 toddlers -- 1-year-old Queen and 2-year-old King -- but in the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she also got pregnant several other times. She claims Rich forced her to have at least 3 abortions because he didn't want any more kids.

Antonette says she has zero income, and has been forced to move in with family back in Georgia. Meanwhile, she claims Rich has moved his new gf, Tori Brixx, into the family home in L.A.

She's demanding spousal support and child support.

On a somewhat more petty note about the lifestyle to which she'd become accustomed -- Antonette bitches that Rich would always fly first class, while sticking her in coach.

Mario Batali Double-Crossed and Stiffed Women's Group

5/22/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

6:14 AM PT -- A spokesperson for Batali's brand licensing company tells TMZ, "There have been no sales of Mario Batali sauces by our licensee since December 2017 as retailers discontinued carrying the product at that time. Mario Batali has received no royalty or payment of any kind since that time. We apologize for any confusion and have asked our licensee to take down the website.”Mario Batali's website claims it struck a deal to donate proceeds from its sauces to a women's group ... but TMZ's learned the organization hasn't received a dime because no deal was ever struck.

We noticed this huge banner posted on mariobatalisauces.com's landing page back in December 2017 shortly after sexual misconduct allegations first surfaced against the disgraced chef. The banner claims the makers of Batali's sauces are donating its proceeds to Women Employed, hailed as one of the nation's most successful advocates for working women.

But, we checked with the organization and a rep tells us, "Summer Garden Food Manufacturing reached out to WE last year about donating proceeds from the sale of its Mario Batali-labeled products to our organization. At no time did Women Employed have a partnership, agreement, or discussion with Chef Mario Batali."

The statement continues, "While WE appreciates that Summer Garden Food Manufacturing reached out to us, this donation did not move forward because distributors did not want to be associated with Batali and pulled the product from their shelves.”

As we reported ... Batali was dumped by his partners on the heels of new claims of sexual misconduct. We reached out to Batali's sauce makers to ask for an explanation for the banner, so far no word back.

T.I. Someone Will Pay For Smearing My Image!!

5/22/2018 7:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

T.I.'s demanding someone pay up and take the fall for what he calls "trumped-up charges" from the arrest at his gated community ... because the case is ruining the image he worked hard to rehabilitate.

We got the rapper leaving Craig's Monday evening in WeHo, and at first we wanted to get his thoughts on Care2's online petition to get his misdemeanor charges dropped. As we reported, T.I. was arrested last week for simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness after getting into it with the security guard at his gated community. 

Tip later butted heads with cops in jail when he tried to get an explanation from the cop who arrested him.

T.I. told us he appreciates the petition but admitted he's more focused on something else -- PAYBACK ... presumably from police or the security company.

Mac Miller Blew Twice the Legal Limit ... In DUI Crash

5/22/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mac Miller blew nearly twice the legal limit when he was arrested last Thursday for DUI, and that was well after he fled his crash scene.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Mac's BAC was .15 when cops arrested him at his home. Mac drove his white G-Wagon into a utility pole and the impact was bad enough to cause the airbags to deploy. Mac and two other passengers miraculously managed to flee on foot, but cops eventually ran his plates and arrested him for DUI and hit and run at his home after he confessed.

The arrest comes on the heels of his breakup with Ariana Grande, whom he dated for nearly 2 years. Sources close to Mac tell us Ariana had tried to keep him straight, but things started to unravel last year ... and they ended things right after Coachella.

After the accident Ariana tweeted, "Pls take care of yourself."

EXCLUSIVE

NASCAR champ Martin Truex Jr. says his White House visit Monday to meet President Trump was "amazing" ... calling it a huge honor he would NEVER consider passing up. 

It's a MUCH different opinion than some NBA and NFL players -- but Truex tells TMZ Sports he considers NASCAR to be "very patriotic" and he's proud to be an American. 

Truex was invited to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. after winning the 2017 Cup Series title -- and on his way out, he RAVED about the experience. 

"Oh my God, it was amazing. The president was an unbelievable host. He showed us everything that he didn't have to show, so it was really cool."

We mentioned the controversy with other athletes boycotting Trump's White House -- and Truex said the thought of turning down Trump never crossed his mind. 

"I mean, I think it's a huge honor. Huge honor for me and my team and for them to invite us was amazing, so I would never pass it up."

During Truex's visit, Trump once again brought up the anthem protests, saying "One thing I know about NASCAR and I will tell you, they do indeed stand for the playing of the national anthem."
