R&B Singer Lyfe Jennings Ex Fears For Her Life Gets Protection For Her And Sons

9/18/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0914_Joy-Bounds-Lyfe-Jennings_tmz-gettyJoy Bounds is terrified R&B singer Lyfe Jennings wants to hurt her and take their boys.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Lyfe's ex and mother of their two sons claims he's tried brainwashing their boys against her and threatened her with violence.

Lyfe was arrested in 2008 and reportedly sentenced to prison for 3 years for kicking down the door of Joy's residence, firing shots, and leading police on a high-speed chase.

Joy says Lyfe's still very scary, claiming he made veiled threats like "I'm gunna remember this" and telling her she was "not that hard to find."

She says he's continued a campaign of brainwashing the kids, recently taking them to a park and feeding them lies about her.

Lyfe tells us he never threatened Joy or the kids in any way. He claims she's throwing a tantrum because he cussed her out about being a bad mother. He also says he's a good dad ... and everyone knows that.

The judge issued a temporary restraining order, keeping Lyfe 200 yards away from Joy and the 2 boys.

Redskins Su'a Cravens' Mom I'll Make Him Wear Cowboys Gear ... For Ignoring My Calls

9/16/2016 1:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Washington Redskins rookie Su'a Cravens is about to find out why he should NEVER ignore his mom's phone calls ... even if she's a fan of his team's rival.

Cravens told reporters earlier this week that he was preparing for his first matchup with the Dallas Cowboys by shutting down all communication with his mom -- a DIE-HARD supporter of America's Team. 

Yolanda Cravens -- who admits she's slowly transitioning into a 'Skins fan -- tells us there will be consequences for Su'a's antics if the Redskins aren't victorious.

"If the Cowboys win, he has to wear something Cowboys. I don't know, they might throw tomatoes at him if he does that."

As for the Redskins drafting Su'a ... Yolanda says there's only one team she REALLY didn't want to select him ... and her reaction is hilarious.

Check out the clip ... and call your mama, Su'a!

Blac Chyna Paternity Test BS She and Rob Tried to Get Pregnant

9/13/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0912-blac-chyna-rob-kardashian-tmz-03Producers of the Blac Chyna/Rob Kardashian reality show are teasing viewers that Chyna underwent a paternity test while she was pregnant because she doubted Rob's the dad, but it's all made up.

The tease shows Chyna demanding a paternity test and there's a shot of her with a needle in her arm ... it makes it seem like she herself is saying she was sleeping with multiple guys.

However, production sources tell us the needle is for a routine blood test ... NOT a paternity test. We're also told she has made it clear ... Rob's the only guy who could possibly be the dad.

In fact, we're told Chyna and Rob planned the pregnancy almost from the get-go. They tried for several weeks to do the deed before she actually got pregnant, despite the fact they only dated each other for a minute.

Chyna actually did tell Rob at one point he might not be the father, but did it "to get under his skin because she was pissed off at him."


LMFAO's Sky Blu Redfoo Screwed Me On Royalties Kept Shufflin' Without Me

9/12/2016 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0912-sky-blu-redfoo-lmfao-tmz-03One half of LMFAO is sounding off at the other claiming despite family ties he's been left in the dust.

Sky Blu posted a scathing letter on Facebook about Redfoo, who's also his uncle, calling him out for ditching him after he suffered a debilitating back injury.

Sky, who now goes by 8ky, is trying to drop his new solo LP but says Redfoo's lawyers fired off a letter saying he gets zero LMFAO royalties ... money he needs to underwrite his album. He says he's also been unsuccessful getting his share of money held up by Rick Ross' lawsuit against the group.

8ky claims Redfoo pushed him out of LMFAO and "just kept shuffling everyday without me," going as far as using their trademark party rock theme on his own solo LP.

8ky also sounded off on their label, Interscope, saying it needs to "stop treating artist like cows and chickens and using them for all they can produce and then just discard them without a care." 

It's kinda history repeating itself. They're both blood related to Berry Gordy, founder of Motown ... a label that had its fair share of royalty fights. 


Blac Chyna I Push Kanye Footwear ... Only Way Cheaper

9/12/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0909-yeezy-knockoffs-twitter-fashionnova-02Blac Chyna has no limits when it comes to hawking gear ... even if it's a total rip-off of the clothing line of her brother-in-law to be. 

Kanye unveiled his Yeezy Season 4 collection this week ... and just hours later Chyna posted an ad on her Instagram for some shiny boots from Fashion Nova -- and she gets $$$ to push their stuff. 

The boots are a dead ringer for Kanye's line. And here's the galling part for Kanye ... Chyna's kicks way undercut him ... $39 a pop, compared to Yeezy boots which run around $1k a pair.

Chyna deleted the post, as she sometimes does. We're guessing she might have gotten a call. 

We reached out to a rep at Fashion Nova, who hardly apologized, saying, "We look to the past, present and future for fashion trends ... at Fashion Nova we have great admiration for Kanye West as he is clearly a trend setter for both fashion and music." 

No shame in their game. 


Noah Cyrus Pockets $350k Fast Off BIG Record Deals

9/11/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0911-noah-cyrus-main-INSTAGRAM-01Miley Cyrus' baby sister, Noah, is joining the family biz ... and it's already paying off with six figure deals before she's recorded a hit.

16-year-old Noah signed 2 contracts -- one that will pay her $250k for recording her first album and another, for writing that album, will get her $100k ... this according to docs obtained by TMZ.

And there are a million more reasons for her to follow in Billy Ray, Miley and Trace's footsteps. If the first album's a hit she can get up to a $1.5 million advance for the second! 

Minimum wage ... it's not for every teenager.


Shaq Comes Back At Shaunie O'Neal ... I'm Right, Our Kids Are NBA Locks

9/11/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaq and Shaunie O'Neal are proving the best fights come AFTER marriage ... 'cause the big fella is DOUBLING DOWN on his NBA prediction for their sons ... despite the objections of mama.

A little backstory ... we got Shaq out last week, and he guaranteed us BOTH his 16-year-old son, Shareef, and his 13-year-old brother, Shaqir, would make the NBA one day.

Awesome dad pride ... but when we got Shaunie, the mama of the bunch, out earlier this week ... she said Shaq needed to slow his very large roll 'cause that's too much pressure for teenagers.

So when we got Shaq out in NYC recently and asked him if he'd changed his mind on the whole thing, the Diesel had two choices ... back it up ... or back out.

He actually chose option #3 ... GO EVEN HARDER.

Check it out ... and try not to pick sides between family.

Unlike most tales of the Warlock, this time he was hanging with his daughters, Lola and Sam. Turns out they're huge Macklemore fans, and Sheen decided to celebrate his 51st last weekend by taking them to TWO concerts ... one in Seattle and then Las Vegas.

Despite recent financial tensions with Denise Richards ... she dropped their girls off for the trip with Dad and his pal, Tony Todd. In addition to the daddy/daughter weekend ... Charlie's other gift was an authentic Gold Glove award from Tony.

As for those wondering why Charlie's been crying poverty to Denise and Brooke Mueller, but is still flying on a fancy jet -- we're told the aircraft was a gift from an "old friend and future business partner, Robert Earl."

Kim Kardashian & North West We're Kanye's Silver Lining

9/6/2016 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0906_kardashian_north_outfits_launchNorth West proved she's her mother Kim Kadashian's daughter down to the matching $11k disco ball dresses they wore to Kanye's Monday show at Madison Square Garden. 

It was North's first official concert and Kim made sure her kid was dressed to impress. Interesting choice on the shoes though ... no Yeezys.

It's technically still summer, so North still gets a pass on curfew.
