Angie Stone

Daughter's Teeth Were Rotting

Before Fight Broke Out

3/11/2015 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Angie Stone Daughter Assault Angie Stone's daughter definitely has a messed up grill after the fight that got Angie arrested, but the real reason her teeth fell out might be failure to root canal ... instead of a blow from her mother.

As TMZ first reported, Angie admitted to cops she hit Diamond with a metal jewelry stand in self defense. Diamond says the stand knocked out 2 teeth.

Sources close to Angie tell TMZ ... the teeth fell out because they'd been rotting out of Diamond's mouth long before the fight. In fact, Diamond cops to her teeth being rotten but tells us -- "It don't matter if my teeth were rotten or not ... I could have gotten a root canal, but she finished the job."

Diamond also disputes her mother's claim she was acting in self defense -- telling us the fight started with both women yelling ... but says Angie grabbed the stand to threaten her. She claims it only got physical when she threatened to call cops -- and Angie struck her in the face with the stand.

Diamond admits wrestling her mother to ground at that point, and says her brother had to break up the scrap. As we reported ... only Angie got arrested and booked for aggravated assault.

Bruce Jenner

I'm Putting On the Brakes

For My Sex Change Docuseries ... For Now

EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner has stopped production of his docuseries chronicling his transformation from a man into a woman, because he feels pressured by producers and has concerns about his family. 

Sources connected with the project tell TMZ ... Bruce told producers 2 weeks ago he felt like they were rushing him and compromising his family by gunning for a May air date.  

Bruce has two big issues -- he wants to make sure his 3 sons are "in a good place" to handle the radical change he's undergoing. He realized the cart was driving the horse, and that the show cannot proceed until his kids are psychologically able to handle it. 

We're also told the recent car crash -- in which a woman died as an apparent result of his inattentiveness -- has had such an emotional impact on him that he needs to deal with it before proceeding with the docuseries. 

A source directly connected to the project told us ... "There's a 99.9% chance the docuseries will happen," but it's still possible Bruce could pull the plug. As we reported, Bunim/Murray Productions will produce the docuseries.

Our sources say there's almost no doubt it will air, but there's no way it will happen in May.

One project will NOT be delayed. We're told Bruce's interview with Diane Sawyer is proceeding on schedule. It's being shot in various locations with Bruce and is not affected by his family or the crash.

Getting Orgasmic In Vegas

3/10/2015 9:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton showed surprising emotion in Vegas when she fake orgasmed in front of hundreds of people.

There was moaning, but no complaining, when Paris hit the stage at the "Thunder From Down Under" show during the bachelorette party of her cousin, Brooke Wiederhorn.

The boys onstage called the girls up to show their stuff in the orgasm department, and Paris won hands down.

The Hilton led group also made stops at Beacher’s Madhouse in the MGM and Britney Spears’ “Piece of Me” to show her what she'll be missing once she ties the knot. 

But seriously, her orgasm was really good.

Don't Spill the Beans on Ariana!!!

Ariana Grande has passed the most important Big Sean dating test -- she's got the public approval of his mother ... much to the dismay of her son.

Big Sean and his adorable mom were at LAX on Sunday when our photog warmed them up with a few questions ... before slipping in one on Ariana.  

Before the rapper could deflect, mom was singing Ariana's praises ... and Sean couldn't stop her.

Wonder if she felt the same about Naya Rivera?

Teaches Nephew Life Lesson

These Hos Ain't Loyal

Chris Brown wants the world to see ... he's awesome with kids, even if they're not his own.

Chris performed at The Forum in Inglewood Sunday night, with 2 nieces and a nephew in attendance. The little boy went on stage with Chris as he sang "Loyal."

Chris may have been singing from the heart. As we reported, he'll be going to court to get a child support order so he can pay LESS than he's paying his baby mama now. Chris is pissed that Nia Guzman has been blabbing about their kid, so he no longer wants to pay a premium for her silence.

Now, we've learned ... Kayla has been talking with Birdman for the past couple of months -- and sources connected to both sides tell us they're close on a deal. 

We reached out to Kayla about the situation -- and while she wouldn't get into details, she said her father is just as pumped as she is.

Bobbi Kristina's aunt is pissed at Dr. Phil for making it seem Nick Gordon is a poor soul who needs help, at the same time he's under criminal investigation for allegedly trying to do in Bobbi Kristina.

Leolah Brown indignantly went on Facebook Saturday night and railed on the TV show for giving Gordon a platform, saying, "We have strong evidence of foul play. Until this investigation is completed by law enforcement, I would ask that you or anyone else not provide this individual a platform to spin this situation to his benefit."

TMZ broke the story ... the criminal investigation was launched when authorities found injuries on Bobbi Kristina's body after she was dragged out of the bathtub. Gordon has refused to be interviewed by cops or tell the Brown family what happened.

Leolah added, "If Nick Gordon does not have the courage to speak with my brother Bobby Brown and/or law enforcement about what happened the day my niece's body was found in a bathtub, he does not deserve to have a platform to speak to anyone of your caliber until this investigation is concluded."

Dr. Phil did an intervention with Nick, who says he's constantly high on booze and Xanax. Phil's show paid for the rehab ... we don't know if there was more in it for Nick.

Nick Gordon
was so whacked out on drugs and alcohol before his "interview" with Dr. Phil, he couldn't even walk and was pushed around on a luggage cart. 

Our sources say Nick was staying at an Atlanta hotel for what he believed was an interview with Phil ... when in fact it was an intervention staged by Nick's mom. We're told Nick's lawyer would not allow him to talk about anything connected with the events that led up to Bobbi Kristina's tragedy. 

Nick's mom did a lot of the talking, and told Phil her son was deep into booze and Xanax. Nick was so messed up he could barely form sentences.  

When Nick realized this was an intervention to get him into rehab, he went nuts. We're told on his way out of the interview he punched 2 members of Dr. Phil's staff.

In the end, we're told Nick went to the rehab facility.

EXCLUSIVE

0307-nia-guzman-baby-shower-gallery-launch-01Chris Brown's baby mama was treated like royalty at her baby shower ... and nothing says royalty like little Gucci boots and tiny Converse.  

We're told 40 friends and family of the former Texas model showered her with baby gifts last March at a Houston apartment banquet, hailing Royalty's imminent arrival.

The guest list included a guy named Brazil, whom she believed was Royalty's papa. He was zip-lipped during the entire soiree.

After gobbling down a crown topped cake, the ladies tested their mommy skills in a diaper changing contest. The winner was toasted with wine from baby bottles. Nia abstained ... something she clearly didn't do with Chris.

Baby Mama's Ex-Husband Warns ...

Watch Your Temper, Or Else!

3/7/2015 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0307-brown-nia-tmz-instagram-01Chris Brown's history of having a temper could bite him in the ass ... because his baby mama's ex-husband is putting the singer on notice -- watch your temper around my family, or we've got a problem.

TMZ spoke with Terry Amey -- who says he was married to Nia from 2003 - 2014 -- and they have a 13 year-old daughter together ... which is why he's letting Chris know he means business.

Terry says he and Nia were separated when she got knocked up ... but since Avery knew it wasn't his kid, he finally filed for divorce. He claims he had no idea the baby belonged to C.B.

Amey tells us he's aware of Chris' notorious temper and says he better not lose it around Nia and the kids, or there will be repercussions. He was not more specific about what that means, but it's clearly a threat.

Chris Brown Child Support

Chris Brown is headed for family court, where his baby mama is now in danger of raking in a lot less in child support because of her big mouth.

Sources connected with Brown tell TMZ ... the singer didn't know he was the father of 9-month-old Royalty until last month, when Nia Guzman dropped the news. We're told Chris quickly made a deal with her where he would pay monthly child support.  

Our sources say Chris is forking out substantially more than he'd be required to pay if a judge ordered formal child support. There's a scale on how much a parent pays, based largely on income. We're told Chris upped that amount and in return demanded that she keep her lips sealed.

We know Chris now believes Nia has been leaking stories and talking about their relationship. As a result, our sources say his lawyers are now preparing legal docs, in which he will ask a judge for an order requiring him to pay child support. It sounds strange, but he'll pay less than he does now.

Karrueche Tran

Babies are for Married Folks

3/7/2015 7:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Karrueche Tran is sticking to her guns ... no ring, no babies.

Chris Brown's ex clearly wanted to be seen last night, hitting up Craig's in WeHo, where there are more paparazzi per square foot than any other joint in L.A.  

As we reported ... although Chris wanted to have babies with her, she held out until they got hitched, which apparently will not happen now that Chris accidentally found another baby mama.

But there is a child-adjacent issue that still needs resolution ... will Karrueche keep the pooch Chris gave her?

Wanted a Baby for Years ...

With Karrueche!

EXCLUSIVE

0305_chris_brown_karrueche-tran_baby_tmz_composite_2Chris Brown's been jonesin' to be a daddy for a long time, and tried to get Karrueche Tran to be the baby mama -- but before there was a bun in the oven, she wanted a ring on her hand.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Chris and Karrueche had the baby talk frequently for at least the last 2 years -- and she was down to have a tiny CB ... IF he would make her an honest woman.

We're told KT feels strongly about marriage before kids, and stood her ground with Chris. Although he stepped up with a couple of diamonds last Christmas -- he couldn't close the deal ... since they weren't engagement rings. 

Karrueche was also worried about derailing her budding acting career.

Even though she wasn't ready yet ...we're told Karrueche still thought she and Chris would have kids together in the future. As one source put it, she's "devastated he did this" with a side chick.

Like the lady said ... "One can only take so much."
