Tamar Braxton Family Standoff Over Her Ex And Reality Show Plots

3/20/2018 9:40 AM PDT

Tamar Braxton is furious with her family, because she believes they're ganging up on her estranged husband to vilify him on the new season of their reality show ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Tamar tell us ... she's supposed to be promoting the return of "Braxton Family Values," but is refusing because she thinks Vincent Herbert is being portrayed in an unfair light in an effort by her mom and sisters to destroy him.

We're told show cameras have captured Tamar and Vince as they steer through their pending divorce, but Tamar feels the family's using fake storylines to drum up ratings and frame Vince as a villain. We're told she's pissed her kin would "stoop so low for personal gain" and unless producers edit out what she feels are lies ... she'll refuse to promote it.

As we've reported ... Tamar insists she's not getting back together with her estranged hubby after his Christmas Day arrest, but she wants to remain cordial with Vince for the sake of their son.

Nas and Kelis are at war over issues involving their 8-year-old son, but they have actually come together and reached a settlement on the issue of custody.

We've learned Nas and Kelis have agreed to share joint legal and physical custody of Knight. The agreement is specific, breaking down who gets the child during various holidays. For example, Nas gets Knight on Father's Day and Kelis gets the child on Mother's Day.

They've been at war over child support for a long time now. Kelis gets $8k a month but claims Nas is doing so much better now financially he should up the ante. 

Elizabeth Hurley Reveals Pic of Nephew's Brutal Knife Wound

3/20/2018 6:50 AM PDT

Elizabeth Hurley wants everyone to see the horror of her nephew's injuries after being stabbed in London.

21-year-old Miles Hurley was stabbed numerous times earlier this month on a London street.  Another man who was with Miles was also stabbed.

The deepest of the wounds narrowly missed severing Miles' spine. Elizabeth said, "We are praying that these animals are caught before they maim, or even kill, someone else."

She has now posted the phone number of the police for anyone who may have information regarding the attack.

Miles is expected to be ok, but the recovery process is slow and painful. He lost 4 pints of blood during the attack on March 8 and is now being cared for by his mom -- Elizabeth's sister. 

Ray J Brandy Skipped Baby Shower ... After Fight w/ Princess Love

3/20/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Ray J and Princess Love's baby shower this weekend was missing two key people -- Ray's sister Brandy and their mom -- and the absence is the result of bad blood ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us that both Brandy and her mother, Sonja Norwood, skipped Ray J and PL's shower Saturday after the women got into a war of words the day before.

We're told Brandy and Sonja attended a gender reveal party Friday for Ray and Princess' soon-to-be-born child -- which is probably gonna be a girl -- and got into it with the mother-to-be over what they perceived to be online shade toward Ray J. 

Apparently, Princess Love had recently tweeted some cryptic messages about cheating ... and not staying in a relationship just because you have a baby with someone. We're told Brandy and Sonja took that to be an unwarranted shot at Ray ... and s*** hit the fan.

Sources say Brandy and Sonja demanded that PL apologize to Ray J, and that started a huge fight. Princess Love told the two ladies to mind their own business ... adding they had no right to weigh in on her relationship since they couldn't keep their own together.

The diss definitely left a mark ... 'cause Brandy and Sonja opted not to attend the couple's shower, and we're told it was absolutely due to the argument.

Happy wife ... pissed blood relatives. That's how that goes, right?

The Rock Hooks Up 'Hip' Dad ... Enjoy Your Cadi!!!

3/19/2018 1:40 PM PDT

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson admits he's got daddy issues -- as in, getting his dad a brand new whip ... on doctor's orders.

His father, retired pro wrestler Rocky Johnson, posed next to a shiny brand new Cadillac Escalade ... which Dwayne purchased. As The Rock explained, "My pops just had his hip replaced and called me and said 'Hey Mr. D the surgeon really feels like I should have a bigger car since my hip rehab.' I cut my dad off and just started laughing because I knew what he was hustling for."

Dwayne says he told the senior WWE legend to pick out whatever car he wants ... and a few hours later, he sent this pic flossing next to his brand new ride. 

He admits his dad used to kick his ass around the gym, and says, "I hated it when I was a kid, but grateful for it as a man." Dwayne called the SUV a small thank-you for the ass kickings his father gave him in the gym when he was growing up. 

It's hip to be The Rock's Pop. 

Charles Manson Pastor Officiated Funeral With Clear Conscience

3/19/2018 12:54 PM PDT

The pastor who presided over Charles Manson's funeral had ZERO qualms about it because he was comforting a follower of Christ -- Manson's grandson, NOT the mass murderer.

Pastor Mark Pitcher of Porterville Church of the Nazarene tells TMZ ... ordinarily he'd have a massive conflict performing a funeral service for someone with Manson's homicidal past, but he made an exception because Manson's grandson, Jason Freeman, is a Christian who was in need of a pastor.

Pitcher tells us the funeral director approached him last week with what he called a "unique situation." He says he agreed to meet Jason and his wife, Audrey, the day before the service.

Pitcher says he told Jason he wouldn't touch certain aspects of Manson's life -- namely the Manson Family murders. He did read a few scriptures, at Jason's request, during the ceremony.

TMZ broke the story ... Manson had an open casket funeral over the weekend. He was immediately cremated when the service ended and his ashes spread along a nearby creek bed.

Charles Manson Open Casket Funeral Then Burnt to a Crisp

3/19/2018 10:31 AM PDT

Charles Manson had his final hurrah Saturday during a memorial service that ended in fire.

Manson's body was front and center at a service held in Porterville, CA. We're told the body was decomposing badly, and needed heavy makeup and gloves to cover the deterioration. He died 4 months ago but his body was put on ice until a judge decided who would take control of it.

Approximately 30 people showed up at the funeral home. His grandson, Jason Freeman -- the man who won control over the body -- spoke at the service, as did a Manson follower.

Manson's service didn't end with a burial. His body was cremated and his ashes were spread along a nearby creek bed in a forest. Apparently it was a windy day, because the ashes blew back on the guests.  

We're told the attendees included Manson's former fiancee, Afton Burton, and former Manson Family member Sandra Good.

As TMZ first reported ... Manson -- the mastermind behind one of the most heinous murder sprees in American history -- died of natural causes back in November 2017. He was 83.

Britney Spears K-Fed's Making a Shameless Money Grab

3/19/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Britney Spears' dad, Jamie, is super upset at Kevin Federline, who called him pleading for more child support when, in fact, all he wants is to jump on her gravy train.

Sources connected to Britney tell TMZ, last Friday K-Fed called Jamie and said he was in a financial bind and wanted to talk about raising his child support. TMZ broke the story K-Fed has been pulling in $20k a month for child support for years, but he now says it's not enough.

We're told Jamie was suspicious and asked Kevin where the $20k was going, but Kevin hedged.

Our sources say, last week, Jamie got a letter from Kevin's lawyer, asking him if they could sit down and talk. They did indeed have a talk, and we're told the lawyer explained now that 12-year-old Sean and 11-year-old Jayden have gotten older, Kevin needed more than $20k.

We're told Jamie pressed again, asking what the kids needed that they weren't getting. We're told Kevin's lawyer wouldn't answer, but said his client needed the means to take care of the 2 kids at Britney's level. Jamie fired back ... Britney's taking care of the kids the way she always did -- nothing's changed.

Our sources say the lawyer repeatedly talked about Britney's recent successes -- particularly her sold-out Vegas shows -- saying she was making a lot more money. We're told Jamie kept pushing back, saying Britney's success has nothing to do with the needs of the children, and his daughter wasn't responsible for taking care of Kevin and his other families.

Britney has paid Kevin a fortune in various forms of support over the years. When they divorced in 2007, she cut him a check for $1.3 million and he got spousal support for several years and continues to get child support.

We're told Kevin and his lawyer never named a figure and never gave a single example of the children's unmet needs.

That's why ex-Jets star Mark Gastineau's life is in shambles -- so says his ex-wife, Lisa Gastineau

We got the reality TV star leaving Craig's in L.A., and asked if she had heard Mark's recent radio interview ... where he painfully described how playing football has destroyed his mind and his body

Lisa wasn't feeling ANY sympathy for her former boo -- saying it all comes down to the K-word. Guessing she still hasn't forgotten about Mark allegedly cheating on her with Brigitte Nielsen back in the day.

FYI -- 61-year-old Mark has previously said he's been diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's ... and now he's in the process of suing the NFL.

Lisa, meanwhile, has been killin' it as a reality fashionista on shows like "Extra," "The View" and 'ET.'

Tommy Lee Battery Case Against Son Headed to D.A.'s Office

3/18/2018 12:50 AM PDT

Tommy Lee's reached the point of no return -- even if he changes his mind about wanting his son, Brandon Lee, prosecuted for battery ... the case is headed to the D.A.'s office.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. is on the verge of wrapping up its investigation into the incident where Brandon punched his dad during an argument. Tommy claims he got sucker-punched, but Brandon says it was self-defense.  

We're told Brandon's been cooperating throughout the investigation. Once the Sheriff kicks the case to the D.A.'s office, Brandon will find out what, if any, charges he's facing.

TMZ broke the story ... Tommy wants to go forward with a criminal complaint, and even got a restraining order against his son. Tommy's fiancee, Brittany Furlancalled 911 after the punch and said Brandon knocked Tommy unconscious.

Pamela Anderson claims Tommy's heavy boozing is to blame for the altercation ... but he says Brandon's just ungrateful.
