Nikki Mudarris

Mally Mall Is Blackmailing Me

... With Other Sex Tapes

10/7/2015 11:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1007-mally-mall-nikki-mudarris-TMZ-01Nikki Mudarris is accusing her ex BF Mally Mall of not only leaking their sex tape ... but also hitting her, destroying her property, and threatening to blackmail her.

The "Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood" star says Mally is obsessed with her and told her he would "EXPOSE UR DIRTY P" if she didn't stop being a bitch. She says a week later, he leaked a sex tape they had made.

Mudarris makes the accusations in her request for a restraining order against Mally Mall. In the docs, she also says he's threatened to kill himself. As for violence against her ... Mudarris says Mally injured her nose back in February, and has destroyed her phones multiple times.

Nikki seems to fear Mally's exotic pets, because when asked about any weapons he might own -- she points out his collection of wild animals and snakes.

Mudarris says Mally's been hitting her up for money, and believes he's recorded other sexual encounters without her knowledge to blackmail her. In other words -- don't be shocked if another sex tape leaks

A judge granted the restraining order ... which requires Mally Mall to stay 100 yards away and have no contact with Nikki.

Last night Mally sounded like he was just as done with Nikki as she is with him.

Ex 'Idol' Corey Clark

I Got Railroaded By My Wife's Stepdad

... He's the Cop Behind My Arrest

10/7/2015 10:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "American Idol" contestant Corey Clark's arrest was the result of a conspiracy -- set in place by his estranged wife and her detective stepfather ... at least that's what Clark is claiming now.

Clark got busted September 23 in Yuma, AZ, and was eventually charged with misdemeanor domestic violence. But Tuesday in L.A. he told us the whole thing was a revenge plot.

Clark says he'd filed a report against Monica Clark just prior to his arrest, claiming she was violating their child custody agreement. Clark thinks it's no coincidence he was arrested right after that, especially because his wife's stepfather is a Yuma PD detective.

We've reached out to Yuma PD for a response ... so far, no word back.


Farrah Abraham

Fired For Being Too Porny

10/7/2015 8:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-farrah-abraham-tmz-01No one wants a piece of Farrah Abraham and the proof is in the sales of her DNA ... at least according to a rep for a company that just fired her.  

Celebrity Gene put Farrah's liquified DNA inside a necklace and put it on the market four months ago with part of the proceeds going to charity, but claims NOT ONE PERSON purchased the stuff.

We obtained the scathing letter CG's publicity company, ZTPR, fired off severing ties with the "Backdoor Teen Mom." It says Farrah "would much rather talk about your female body parts in order to generate more profits for yourself" rather than charity.

Translation: Farrah promotes the hell out of sex toys (molded from her body parts), but does nothing to promote the DNA necklace. 

Por ejemplo ... the PR co. couldn't resist referencing this classic from Farrah: "Another one of my absolute favorites is my full on vibrating p***y and ass molded from my very own body." Classy.

Moving forward, CG says it's cutting all ties with Farrah. Instead, ALL future profits will go to the charity she chose, Operation Underground Railroad.

Now if only someone would buy one of these things.


Eagles' Chip Kelly

I'll Let You Drink from Pope's Cup

... Says Philly Congressman

10/7/2015 7:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Can the Pope's saliva save the Eagles? Maybe ... 

Turns out, the Philadelphia congressman who took Pope Francis' water cup after his holiness spoke in D.C. last month says he's willing to let Chip Kelly take a swig from the glass -- if it can help the team!  

1007-subasset-bob-brady-apWe spoke with Congressman Bob Brady who says he's still a huge Kelly supporter -- despite the fact they're struggling this season with a 1-3 record. 

So, if it means bringing Kelly to his office to sip from the holy cup ... Brady says he's 100% on board! 

There's just one problem with the potential divine intervention -- their next opponent is the Saints. 

Diddy's Son

I'd Do 'Empire' in a Heartbeat

No Matter What My Dad Wants

10/7/2015 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Quincy Combs is drawing the line on the subject of family loyalty -- it doesn't matter that his pops, Diddy reportedly has issues with "Empire" ... he'd love almost any role on the show, except Jussie Smollett's.

Quincy was leaving 1 OAK Tuesday when our photog asked if he'd toe the line with his dad in his beef with "Empire." Rumor is the show wanted Quincy for the Hakeem role, but Diddy squashed it because FOX would own all the music he made.  

Check it out ... Quincy makes it sound like the rumors were false, because he says he'd absolutely take a role, but he's not experienced enough to play a gay character -- presumably because there are scenes involving overt affection.

He's not saying anything disparaging about gays ... he just doesn't think he could pull it off.

Jim Carrey

Girlfriend Attempted Suicide

Once Before

10/7/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-carrey-white-getty-instagram-01Jim Carrey's on-and-off again girlfriend Cathriona White tried ending her life in 2012 and we're told a hateful message from her biological mother may have led to her suicide ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ. 

Our sources tell us, during their investigation they learned White attempted suicide after her father's death in 2012.

We're told White's friends told investigators on Cathriona's birthday -- just days before her suicide -- she received a hateful message from her estranged biological mother who called her a "failure."

Cathriona committed suicide on the 3rd anniversary of her father's death.

Our sources say her mother's attack, along with the somber anniversary and her breather with Jim, may have contributed to Cathriona's suicide. It appears she OD'd on drugs.


LAPD Gun Stalker Video

Rap Group Claims Gun's a Phony

10/7/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The LAPD can chill, because there's no need to launch a criminal investigation into the video which seems to show someone lurking around a cop car with gun in hand ... because the people who shot the video say the gun's a fake. 

The '90s rap group Brownside produced an Instagram video showing someone in a car flashing a gun as an unsuspecting LAPD cop gets out of his patrol car. LAPD Chief Charlie Beck believes the guy with the gun has a prior conviction and may have committed a crime -- carrying a firearm inside a vehicle.

But a member of the group -- Toker -- tells us his brother is the one in the video, and the gun is a plastic prop ... one of many they bought earlier in the day for a music video shoot for their single, "Till the Casket Drops."

By the Way, the group was once signed to Eazy-E's Ruthless Records.

Eazy would be proud.

'American Horror Story: Hotel'

Real Life Hotel

Swarmed By Fans

10/7/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-hotel-cecil-getty-01"American Horror Story: Hotel" has drawn hordes of fans to the real hotel on which the show is based.

'AHS' die-hards are flocking to Stay on Main hotel in downtown L.A. ... the site of a grisly death in 2013 when it was called the Cecil Hotel.

Elisa Lam was found dead in the hotel's water tank after the hotel received complaints the water tasted funny. Her death was ruled an accidental drowning, but after LAPD released elevator video of Elisa's erratic behavior, stories began surfacing she was possessed and the hotel was haunted.

We're told the barrage of 'AHS' promos featuring Lady Gaga have sent fans into a frenzy ... people are lining up to stay in Elisa's room and poke around the water tank. As for the room, they're out of luck ... it's off limits.

Ryan Murphy has said his inspiration for the new season of 'AHS' -- premiering Wednesday night -- is Lam's story.

We're told security is on alert for people daring to conduct paranormal investigations.

Triple G

I Wanna Fight Mayweather Next

... Pacquiao's Too Small

10/7/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Boxing superstar Gennady Golovkin says he's ready, willing and able to fight Floyd Mayweather once he disposes of David Lemieux next weekend ... telling TMZ Sports, "I'm ready."

Triple G was in L.A. training for his big October 17th fight -- when he told us he's still focused on taking down Lemieux ... but it's clear he's itching for his shot to beat the crap out of Money May. 

What's interesting ... we asked if Gennady would settle for a bout with Manny Pacquiao if Floyd chickens out -- but Triple G shot that down saying, "Manny's too small."

FYI -- Gennady has previously said he would drop weight to fight the smaller Mayweather. Guess Pacquiao simply isn't worth the diet. 

Mariah Carey

I'm Directing A XMAS Movie ...

And My Favorite 'Mean Girl' Is In It

10/7/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-mariah-carey-set-chair-TMZ-01Mariah Carey is directing a Hallmark movie for the holidays starring her favorite character, Gretchen Weiners from "Mean Girls."

Our Mariah people say she started working on "A Christmas Melody" Tuesday and made herself right at home in the director's chair. We're told Mariah had only one request, her favorite actress from her favorite movie star in the flick. Let's be serious ... she had more than one request.

Lacey Chabert, who played Gretchen Weiners in "Mean Girls" was more than happy to take the lead.  

Mariah won't appear in the movie but we're told her music is featured throughout. It's unclear if MiMi tapped into directing legend Brett Ratner for advice.

Williams' rep tells us she posed for BE Entertained Magazine to "show she's single, free at last and ready to live."

Translation -- Brittish likes guys. Guys like naked women. So, there.

Gilbert Arenas

Sues Baby Mama for Libel

... I Never Gave You STDs

10/6/2015 4:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006_Gilbert-Arenas-laura_govan_tmz-2There's a difference between being sore over someone ...  and GIVING SORES TO SOMEONE ... so says Gilbert Arenas who's suing his baby mama for claiming he gave her STDs. 

The ex-NBA superstar has filed a lawsuit against Laura Govan -- claiming she concocted a diabolical scheme to humiliate him on a global scale by making everyone think he's rotten in the genitals, even though she knows he's not. 

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Arenas claims Govan got super bitter when he dumped her ... so she decided to write up an email to him chock full of nasty allegations and then leak it to various gossip websites knowing they would run it. 

In the email, Arenas claims Govan wrote, "When I left you it was because I couldn't take the STDs."

Gilbert is adamant in his lawsuit the accusation is FALSE -- and "Govan knew it to be false when it was made."

Arenas is suing for libel -- and demanding unspecified damages. 

Beyonce & Jay Z

Check Out Our New $45 Million Palace

10/6/2015 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Jay Z and Beyonce got the last laugh after getting notice to leave the house they were renting ... because we've learned they got an even better house.

Our sources say Bey and Jay are now renting the $45 million Holmby Hills palace that was owned by ex-L.A. Dodgers owner Frank McCourt.

McCourt sold the house to a British billionaire last year for $45 million, but we're told the new owner was hardly in L.A. and it just sat vacant. So he recently decided to put it on the market for lease ... we're told for around $150k a month.

Our sources -- all of whom are people who were on hand this past weekend facilitating the move -- say Beyonce and Jay signed a 1-year lease. 

As for the house ... it's 20,000 square feet, complete with an indoor Olympic-sized pool complex and an outdoor pool with a waterfall and formal gardens. 

As we previously reported, Bey Z got the boot from their old rental in the same neighborhood after the owner decided to sell it.

We broke the story ... Jay Z and Beyonce are putting down stakes in L.A., largely because they think it's a good place to raise Blue Ivy.
