Amber Rose Sued for Defamation by Wiz Khalifa's Mom

8/8/2017 11:49 AM PDT

Amber Rose launched into a profanity-laced phone call accusing Wiz Khalifa's mother of being an unfit grandmother ... so says Wiz's mom in a lawsuit.

Katie Wimbush-Polk is reportedly suing Amber for defamation because she says Wiz's ex said she was responsible for her child's death. Khalifa's sibling, Dorien "Lala", died in February of complications from lymphoma.

In the suit -- as reported by the Washington Observer-Reporter -- Amber made the phone call to Katie after Katie allegedly reported Amber to California Child Welfare Services. Katie denies making the call, and nothing came of it when child services visited Amber on June 19.

Wiz's mom is suing for damages. We've reached out to Amber, so far no word back.

Chris Pratt, Anna Faris Split Triggered by Family, More Kids and Hollywood

8/8/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are going their separate ways not because of some third party in their marriage, not because one of them did something unforgivable ... they split because they each have very different views of what a family should be.

Our sources say Anna wants a family that is pretty much together most of the time. She wants a base ... which for her has been Los Angeles. We're told she wants more kids. The upshot ... Anna wants a traditional family.

Chris, on the other hand, has had some life-changing experiences that has required him to adjust the balance between family and career. When he married Anna back in 2009, she was much bigger than him. He's now at the top of the Hollywood food chain, and with that comes opportunities that take him all over the world, shooting movies that take him away from home for months at a time.

Our sources say he doesn't want more kids ... at least not in the foreseeable future, because he can't juggle a growing family with his career. And he can't be corralled in one place -- even L.A. -- because that's not the way the movie industry works.

That said, we're told they have an unbreakable bond in son Jack. They are devoted parents, both separately and together and they are determined to keep it that way.

Our sources say there are other personal reasons for the split, but the way they see family in the long-term was a big factor in their decision.

Finally, our sources say both Chris and Anna are incredibly sad over the end of their relationship. Although she says they've separated, we're told they have already set the wheels in motion for divorce, which we're told will be as amicable as it gets. 

Boosie Badazz I Was Clowning ... My Son Gets Oral Sex On His Own

8/7/2017 9:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Boosie Badazz insists he wasn't REALLY going to get a woman to give his son oral sex, but adds ... the 14-year-old kid doesn't need any help hooking up with chicks.

Boosie sparked a little controversy with his birthday post for Tootie Raw, where he said he was giving him money and a "bad bitch" to perform fellatio on him. But the rapper tells us he "was just clowning" ... and there's no woman for hire.

However, that's only because he says that's totally unnecessary for his son -- or any kids that age. Boosie doesn't mince words, and says he has no misconceptions about teens having sex.

EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly has lawyers coming after him now, because the family of one of the young women living with him wants her back home ... and they've hired a legal team to help out.

Joycelyn Savage's parents have hired attorneys Gerald A. Griggs and Leif Howard in their "effort to seek the safe return" of their daughter from the singer. The Savages say they're concerned for her health and safety and reiterate they haven't seen her for almost a year.

According to Griggs ... the plan is to make contact with R. Kelly's reps and work with them to get Joycelyn back to her family, even though she is an adult.

We broke the story ... Joycelyn's dad, Timothy, believes R. Kelly targets underage women and is abusive to them, and even compares his relationships with the women to slavery.

Kardashian Family Caitlyn's a Transgender Traitor

8/4/2017 11:33 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Kardashian family believes Caitlyn Jenner has betrayed the transgender community by sticking with Donald Trump after the President vowed to ban transgender soldiers from the military.

Sources with first-hand knowledge tell us, Caitlyn's latest stunt -- parading around Malibu wearing a "Make America Great Again" cap is an affront to the community she claims to champion. The family believes Caitlyn promotes transgender rights in a very selective way -- when it helps her.

They think she's become heartless by flaunting views that hurt the LGBT community and it reaffirms they want nothing to do with her.

As one source said ... "Caitlyn has always been about Caitlyn."

8/4/2017 8:00 AM PDT

Hilary Duff is staying above water when it comes to motherhood.

Hilary's soakin' up the sun with her son, Luca, and friends over in Hawaii. She's taking it all in -- some fun on a paddle board, catching some rays and definitely some waves ... all in mommy mode.

Motherhood suits her well ... especially in a striped bathing suit, despite it being understandably PG.

But we've seen her out flaunting the goods before ... a little here and a little there for everyone to enjoy.

It's a 3-PEAT for Chad Johnson's daughter Cha'iel ... the 12-year-old track star just DOMINATED to win gold medal in the 800m race at the AAU Jr. Olympic Track & Field Championships for the 3rd year in a row.

Cha'iel -- who's won the competition with ease the past 2 years -- crossed the finish line Wednesday with a time of 2:13.72 ... nearly 2 whole seconds faster than the 2nd place finisher.

Mini-Ocho's not letting up, either ... she finished almost 6 seconds faster than her time 1 year ago (2:19:60).

Nick Cannon My Kid's Talent is all in the Genes ... Whose, Exactly?

8/2/2017 3:36 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Cannon says his and Mariah Carey's daughter is a natural born star 'cause her musical talent runs deep in her veins ... but it's unclear who he thinks passed it on.

We got Nick Wednesday in NYC, where we asked for his take on Monroe's stage performance next to her mom -- and his baby mama -- Mariah. He's not surprised she killed it ... like he says, it's in the genes.

What he's not totally clear on is whose genes he's talking about. As you know ... Mimi's the singer in the fam. And, while Nick raps, he definitely doesn't have her pipes.

The former 'AGT' host also addresses his replacement, Tyra Banks. He punts on that one, claiming TV blindness.

Breaking News

Kobe Bryant went from "skins" to "shirts" in Italy on Wednesday -- keeping covered up on a boat in Portofino after being body shamed the day before. 

The ex-NBA superstar was mocking himself about the topless pics that surfaced on Tuesday -- jokingly calling himself "Mamba Thick" and vowing to get shredded again in 30 days ... not that he really needs to. 

Still, he didn't look too concerned during Wednesday's family boat trip -- smiling with Vanessa and his 3 daughters ... and snapping photos from a real deal camera (instead of an iPhone). 

Say "cheese" ... even if it's not on the diet anymore.  

Jennifer Garner I'm Divorcing Ben ... Not His Mom

8/1/2017 3:37 PM PDT

Jennifer Garner's not just good at getting along with her ex -- she's still totally cool with his mom too.

Jen was out for a walk Tuesday with Ben Affleck's mother, Chris, in Brentwood ... and they looked like 2 old friends yukkin' it up.

As we've reported, Jen and Ben have been doing the co-parenting thing like pros, while also having fun with their own friends. But clearly, for Jen anyway, family is family.

Besides ... always a good idea to keep Grandma happy.

Kobe Bryant Vacation Dad Bod Jacked & Hairless (Update)

8/1/2017 6:34 AM PDT

2:36 PM PT -- Kobe has ... (ahem) ... weighed in on the pics -- saying, "Objects on camera may appear larger than they do in the mirror haha."

He added, "ok...ok...ok. Gimme 30 days #challengeaccepted #mambathick #mambabeast."

Kobe Bryant's chest is just like his jumper ... SMOOTH!

The Mamba ditched the shirt for a relaxing poolside session in Portofino, Italy while on vacation with his family -- but just like the rest of us, he couldn't muster up the strength to put his phone away. 

Italy is like a second home for Kobe -- he grew up there while his father played pro ball in Calabria and speaks fluent Italian.

Portofino is poppin' right now for rich people -- Kris Jenner hit up the vacation spot last month. Same with Tiffany Trump. And Heidi Klum was there last week!

Maybe they all use the same waxer?
