Affluenza Mom Now Doing Time ... Behind Bar

8/23/2016 7:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-tonya-couch-tmz-wm-01Tonya Couch, the mother of the "affluenza" teen who fled to Mexico with her son, is back on her feet -- especially during happy hour -- tending bar.

We've learned Ethan Couch's mom is slinging drinks at the Honky Tonk Woman Saloon in Azle, TX. Tonya's telling customers the Saloon gig was a lifesaver because, after she and Ethan were captured in Mexico last year ... no one wanted to hire her. We're told she's had the job for about a month.

Tonya was cleared to start working in June and was released from house arrest on Tuesday, but she's still sporting an ankle monitor. Ethan's doing 2 years for violating probation when he bolted for Mexico, and Tonya's still facing 2 felonies.

The Honky Tonk Woman calls itself a bar for people from all walks of life, hosting pig roasts, NASCAR parties and biker rallies. Definitely a good time, but a long way from Couch's comfy life in the 'burbs.

The Kardashians Judge Orders Sisters' Face Down

8/23/2016 5:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-kardashians-tmz-instagram-03Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian just scored a legal victory against the beauty company that was plastering their mugs all over the Internet to hawk a cosmetic line.

TMZ broke the story ... the girls sued Haven Beauty -- which bought a failing cosmetics line called Boldface -- claiming the company had no right to use their images to sell its products.

The company fired back -- the prior owner made a deal with the Kardashian sisters in which they obligated themselves to promote the cosmetic line, which included using their images on the company's website.

The girls fired back again, saying yes, they made a deal, but Haven and the prior owner screwed them out of royalties so the deal was over.

A judge just agreed with K, K and K, and issued an injunction prohibiting Haven from using a trace of the famed trio.

There are still legal issues to settle, but the ruling is a big victory for the women.

EXCLUSIVE

TMZ broke the story ... Chyna's friend, Paige Addison, was tooling around in Chyna's BMW back in November when she blew a stop sign and slammed into an SUV and injured 2 people inside. The lawsuit claims Chyna should've known Paige was a bad driver and should never have let her take the wheel.

Paige was charged with felony hit-and-run.

The people in the SUV want medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.

We've reached out to Chyna ... so far, no word back.

Ariana Grande Sued Your 'One Last Night' Is Just An ALL NIGHT Rip-off

8/23/2016 5:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-ariana-grande-getty-02If the hook in Ariana Grande's hit song, "One Last Time," sounds familiar that's because she jacked it from a song that came out 2 years earlier ... according to a new lawsuit.

Songwriter Alex Greggs says he wrote, and holds the copyright on the 2012 tune, "Takes All Night" ... an EDM track for Skye Stevens. In the suit, Greggs says Ariana and David Guetta -- who produced "One Last Time" -- duplicated the most memorable part of his song ... the chorus!

Greggs is a heavy hitter, who's worked with Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and both Jacksons -- Janet and Michael -- and says Ariana copied his music as well as lyrics, like ... "take(s) [or taking] you home."

He's suing for a cut of the profits from AG's track, a top 20 hit in 2014.

Go ahead and play juror ... check out both tunes.

EXCLUSIVE

opi_beverly_hills_home_launchThe lady who helped make OPI king queen of the nail polish game just put a fresh coat of cash on her pockets ... by unloading her Bev Hills palace.

The $15 mil will ease her pain.

8/23/2016 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-devin-hester-gettyDevin Hester ain't hanging up his cleats just yet ... telling TMZ Sports he definitely plans to be in the NFL next year ... and nearly half the league is interested. 

The 3-time All-Pro return specialist was released by the Atlanta Falcons this past July after battling a toe injury ... but that hasn't kept Hester from gunning for a return this season.

"I can't say much now, but I'm getting close," Hester says. "(I) got 14 teams waiting on me."

He wouldn't say which teams ... but Hester is considered the best returner in NFL history ... so it's no surprise there's a ton of squads looking to sign him. 

Get this man back in the league ... it's Madden season.

Antonio Cromartie New Colts Cash Well Spent ... Pays Off Back Child Support

8/23/2016 2:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-antonio-cromartie-tmz-01Antonio Cromartie took his $3 million deal from the Colts and immediately used it to settle a child support dispute with a baby mama ... and avoided a possible arrest in the process.

Cromartie was delinquent on child support payments to Rosemita Pierre -- the mother of Alonzo, his oldest child ... aka #1 of 13. According to docs, AC was ordered to pay her $4,000 per month, starting in January 2016 but failed to do so.

He was due in a Florida court last week to either pay up or explain why he couldn't -- but Cro was a no-show. Then the cavalry arrived in the form of the Colts one-year contract ... which he signed Monday. 

We're told Cromartie made a payment Tuesday afternoon. It's unclear how much he forked over, but it was enough for the judge to withdraw a warrant that had been issued earlier in the day.

Crisis averted. 

Meek Mill Tried to Block Drake From Philly Turnup

8/23/2016 11:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-drake-meek-mill-TMZ-02Meek Mill tried to set up a full blockade of Drake in Philadelphia, but the plan blew up in his face ... TMZ has learned.

Sources in both rappers' camps tell us Meek had Sunday night marked down on his calendar -- knowing full well Drake was scheduled to be behind enemy lines ... performing in Meek's hometown. We're told Meek's crew put out calls to several nightclubs asking them to turn down Drake if he wanted to throw an after-party.

Meek's camp also put out calls to several hundred of their homies in town, and asked them to make a show of force at the Wells Fargo Center. Things really got heated when their crews contacted each other directly -- Meek's team warning Drake's that there better not be any disrespect when they got to Philly.  

We're told the warning only pissed off Drake ... and reignited the beef. This is exactly why he called Meek a "p****" on Saturday night ... and then ripped into him even harder in Philly.

For what it's worth -- Drake did NOT party in town after the concert. It's unclear if that's because Meek's blockade was successful, or if Drizzy just chose to get the hell outta Dodge ... with all his bodyguards nearby. 

Lenny Dykstra If Mickey Wants A Fight ... He Better Kill Me

8/23/2016 11:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

More VIOLENT THREATS in the Mickey Rourke vs. Lenny Dykstra beef ... this time coming from Lenny, who says if the two actually brawl ... IT WILL BE TO THE DEATH!!!

Nails called in to the 'Drew and Mike' podcast Monday and responded to vicious and serious threats Rourke made ... when he told us he was going to break Lenny's face if he saw him.

If you thought Lenny was going to play peacemaker YOU THOUGHT WRONG ... he absolutely unloads on Rourke calling him a p***y and saying if their fight ever does happen it can only end one way.

"Someone said he can fight and all this ... I don't know. Well, he better be able to fight ... you have to kill me motherf***er."

You gotta listen ... Lenny absolutely skewers Mickey on EVERYTHING ... accusing him of being an old, broken down, juiced up former domestic abuser.

This one is definitely 100% real.

UFC's Michael Bisping Double Duty Training for Fight on Movie Set

8/23/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It's a good thing Michael Bisping can multitask ... 'cause the UFC middleweight champ says he'll be training for his next fight against Dan Henderson while shooting his new movie in London. 

Bisping locked up a role in the bare-knuckle boxing flick, "My Name Is Lenny" -- which starts filming this week. Bisping says his part will take roughly 2 weeks to complete. 

But he also has a huge fight coming up against Hendo at UFC 204 in October -- just 7 weeks away. 

So, how will he be able to prep for the fight and shoot the flick? 

"My trainer's gonna come with me. I'm still gonna train every day. Film the movie. Come back. Focus on the fight. Kick some ass."

FYI, other fighters like Paige VanZant and Conor McGregor have turned down roles to focus on training camp -- but clearly, Bisping thinks he can handle both. 

We'll find out on October 8th ...

We caught up with him Monday night at Craig's in WeHo and our photog asked him about all the criticism he's getting for his eight-part series, "Too Close to Home," on TLC.

The couple hit up Katsu-Ya in the Valley Sunday night and couldn't keep their hands off of each other -- kissing and giggling through the meal. Witnesses tell us at one point Ariana was even lying on his lap.

They've got some history. Before Ariana hooked up with Big Sean ... Mac was on the scene as her boyfriend in her "The Way" music video.

Way to go, homey.

Tyga Groundhog Day! Nailed for $186k Landlord Tab

8/23/2016 8:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822_Tyga_tmz-2Tyga better bust out his bad renter playbook to deal with another landlord who won a judgment against him for trashing a rented space.

Tyga owes $186,275.89 to F&S Investment Properties after he allegedly abandoned ship and left the space in ruins ... according to docs. The "Rack City" rapper rented the space for his company, Egypt Last Kings Clothing, and is accused of pouring ink down the drain and a bunch of other tenant no-nos.

Here's the deal ... if Tyga doesn't pay he knows what could happen next -- F&S lawyers will grill him in court about his finances. You'll recall a Malibu landlord tried to do the same, but when Tyga was a no-show for a hearing ... a warrant went out for his arrest. He eventually paid up to settle the case.

No doubt, F&S is gunning for the same result. Rinse and repeat.
