DeMario Jackson I'm Done with 'BiP'

6/22/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DeMario Jackson -- the guy who had oral sex with Corinne Olympios during filming of "Bachelor in Paradise" -- is done with the show. 

Sources close to DeMario tell TMZ he's suffered from anxiety over the scandal after living under a cloud of suspicion for a week. He's even started seeing a therapist. And, he's upset because his name will now forever be linked to a sex scandal, even though Warner Bros. essentially concluded he did nothing wrong.

We're told DeMario claims producers spoke to his lawyer and invited him back on the show, but he's done. Other sources dispute that he was invited back and say no decision has been made.

We're told DeMario now wants to ditch reality TV for a career as an on-air personality.

Our sources also tell us Corinne has not been invited back, and it's highly likely she will never re-appear on 'B.I.P.' or any other 'Bachelor' franchise.

Havoc on Prodigy's Death I Nearly Crashed With My Kid When I Heard

6/22/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Prodigy's partner in Mobb Deep thought his death was one of those rumors they hear all the time, and he even joked around about it ... until he confirmed the devastating news hours later.

Havoc spoke out for the first time since Prodigy died, and told us he left Las Vegas Sunday knowing Prodigy was in the hospital. Unfortunately, that wasn't uncommon and Havoc says he wasn't too concerned -- his friend had battled sickle cell throughout their 28 years together. Plus, he'd checked up on him multiple times by phone ... and his condition was improving.

Havoc thought nothing of a "weird rumor" he heard Tuesday morning, saying ... "I was really laughing, to be honest with you."

One call to their road manager changed that.

Havoc says he made the call while driving from his 5-year-old son's kindergarten graduation -- "I could've crashed with my kids in the car."

As for remembering Prodigy with their music -- Havoc says, "I'm still f**ked up. I can't listen."

Kodak Black Judge Signs Off ... Drop the Beat, My Felon!

6/22/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kodak Black is free to hit the studio or the stage with rappers who have rap sheets while he's on house arrest ... TMZ has learned.

A judge granted his request to work with performers who have records -- which would normally be a major no-no for someone in Kodak's situation. In the order, obtained by TMZ, the judge makes it clear the exception is only for work. Also, he's cool to hang out with family members who might have records. 

We broke the story ... Kodak asked a judge if he could collab with people who've been behind bars -- successfully avoiding a return trip to jail, like his last time on house arrest.

Chad Johnson Keyshawn's Helping His Son ... Weed and NFL Don't Mix

6/21/2017 4:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chad Johnson says he's all for Keyshawn Johnson showing his son a little tough love ... saying it might be just what the kid needs to keep him from blowing his football career (and some BIG money).

Keyshawn Sr. yanked his boy off Nebraska's football squad after Key Jr. got busted with weed in his dorm -- saying his son needs to "mature" before he can put his pads on again.

We got Chad out at LAX, and asked him if this was great fathering -- or parenting gone too far?

Ocho made it clear he has Key's back -- although he wasn't sure he'd have done the same thing.

BTW -- Key Jr. was one of the best high school wideouts in the country, so we're betting Nebraska coach Mike Riley is hoping dad softens up.

Corinne Olympios Boyfriend Says I'm Stickin' with Her

6/21/2017 4:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios' boyfriend does not believe she cheated on him, does not believe the Warner Bros. investigation was kosher, and will not dump her.

Jordan Gielchinsky has made it clear to friends ... he still believes Corinne that she was in a blackout state when she had oral sex with DeMario Jackson in a swimming pool during the first day of 'BIP' filming.

Jordan claims he has spoken to several cast members who back up her story, and he thinks the Warner Bros. investigation was a whitewash so the show could resume filming.

As we reported, multiple people who have seen the video say Corinne seemed fully engaged in the pool and at no time does she seem out of it.

We're told Corinne made a deal with Jordan ... she wouldn't have sex with anyone on the show. He thinks the swimming pool incident doesn't count because she was drunk out of her mind.

Jordan's also suspicious because he says Corinne's lawyer has not been able to see the tape but it was shown to DeMario's attorney. Our sources say Warner Bros. isn't sharing the video with Corinne's legal team because she's threatened legal action.

The question, is Jordan right ... or is he love blind?

EXCLUSIVE

Keshia Knight Pulliam says her trip to accompany Bill Cosby at his trial was totally on the up and up -- and she has emails to prove her ex knew it ... despite his claim she broke their custody deal.

Keshia filed docs calling BS on Ed Hartwell, who accused her of bailing on his supervised visit with their daughter ... so she could be with Cosby in Philly. She says the fact is ... NO visit was scheduled.

According to the docs ... Ed never reserved the site where the supervised visits happen. He's required to do so 1 week ahead of time, and when Ed didn't reserve it for June 6 ... Keshia made other plans. She added, Ed knew full well she was going to Philly and had no objections.

Keshia also attached a June 4 email sent to Ed, reminding him there'd be no visitation because he didn't reserve the site.
