Chris Brown & Karrueche BET Made Sure to Keep Them Apart During Award Show

6/26/2017 12:58 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The BET Awards made special plans to accommodate Karrueche Tran's restraining order against Chris Brown ... even though he was scheduled to perform and she was a presenter. 

Production sources tell TMZ ... Karrueche was given a heads-up by BET producers that Chris would be performing Sunday night. When he took the stage, producers moved her to a holding room to ensure Chris never got within 100 yards of Karrueche, as the court order requires.

We're told she did not watch Chris's performance while in the holding room. Also, Chris never sat in the audience -- he was only backstage, and he and Karrueche never crossed paths. 

We're told BET invited her almost 2 months ago to present an award, and she agreed so she could promote her show, "Claws." Remember, she was smack in the middle of her case against Chris at that time ... which included allegations he'd made violent threats.

It seemed odd she chose to be at the same event as him, but it's now clear BET went out of its way to address any concerns Karrueche might have -- and to ensure Chris didn't violate the protective order.

Of course, none of that prevented her new bf Quavo, and his Migos crew, from squaring off with Chris at an after-party. 

BET Celeb Hoops Game Soulja Boy Benched Due to Chris Brown Beef

6/26/2017 10:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Soulja Boy is second rate compared to Chris Brown ... at least to BET, which chose Chris over Soulja for Saturday's Celebrity Basketball Game.

Sources close to Soulja tell us a BET rep reached out to his manager, Miami Mike, Friday ... one day before the sold-out event, and asked him not to come because of security concerns. Everyone knows Chris and Soulja don't like each other ... there have been multiple violent threats between them.

Still, Soulja was scheduled to appear, and his face was even on promo posters.

We're told Soulja's camp tried to reassure BET there'd be no problems, but execs didn't buy it ... and cut him from the game. Chris not only showed as scheduled, but earned co-MVP honors.

Soulja, on the other hand, had to settle for BET compensating him for travel expenses.

We reached out to sources connected to the couple to find out what's going down in KK's uterus -- but everyone says "Dad + Mom" are just lovey dovey nicknames ... nothing more.

EXCLUSIVE

Future and his daughter weren't about to take their masks off at the BET Awards 'cause they cost a damn fortune to make.

You might have noticed Future and his little girl, Londyn, rocking Bane-like masks Sunday on the red carpet, and even during the rapper's performance at the show. Well, the hardware didn't come cheap ... try about $9,000 for 3 of 'em.

Sources with direct knowledge tell us Future's camp hired designers Marianna Harutunian and Xtina Milani to create 3 unique masks for Future and Londyn.

We're told Future dropped between $2,500 to $3,000 per mask -- all of which were made with brass frames and Swarovski crystals. Londyn rocked rose gold brass with gold crystals. Future had one for arrivals and another for his performance ... both with clear, black and orange crystals.

They took about a week and a half to make. Clearly, Future's was designed so he could rap through it.

Justino was cited for battery for allegedly punching Angela Magana in the face at the UFC center in Vegas on May 21 after she confronted Magana about comments on social media.

Beyonce gave birth 2 weeks ago Monday, but she and Jay-Z are still dealing with premature birth issues ... sources connected to the family tell TMZ.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, as of 4 days ago the infants were still in the hospital. As we reported, they are "under the lights" ... which typically means they have jaundice, the result of elevated bilirubin issues. The lights lower bilirubin in the blood to eliminate the jaundice.

We're told none of the medical problems should pose serious long-term issues ... nonetheless, we're told doctors did not want the babies released until they were stabilized.

As we reported ... Beyonce had a boy and a girl.

The release date is unclear.
