NFL's Jevon Kearse Rookie's Mom Called Coach ... After $50k Rookie Dinner

5/6/2016 8:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

A former NFL 1st round draft pick's mother was SO PISSED after her son was forced to throw down $50,000 at a rookie hazing dinner, she called the head coach to complain ... so says Jevon Kearse

Kearse says the legendary meal went down in 2006 -- right after the Philadelphia Eagles signed 14th overall pick Brodrick Bunkley to a 6-year $12.7 million contract ($10 mil guaranteed). 

0506-Brodrick-Bunkley-gettyJevon says the guys went to town on expensive wine and steak -- and when Bunkley's mom found out, she personally called Andy Reid to try to get the money back.  

So, did the players chip in to reimburse Bunkley?

"No, all that money was digested." 

You gotta watch the clip ... Kearse also reveals how much he had to shell out during his rookie dinner in 1999. 

It's a good thing these guys are rich. 

Michael Jackson Someone Pulls a Fast One To Grab Michael's Home

5/6/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

505-jackson-hayvenhurst-home-apSomeone secretly filed legal documents aimed at taking Michael Jackson's Hayvenhurst family home away from his estate and deeding it to Katherine Jackson and MJ's kids.

TMZ obtained the deed which was filed with the L.A. County Recorder's Office. It claims to transfer the long-standing family home in Encino from Michael Jackson to Katherine, Blanket, Paris and Prince. According to the deed, each now has a 25% ownership interest in the home.

0505_katherine_jackson_sub_doc_launch

It's a weird, suspicious document, but we've verified with the notary public who was there when it was signed that Katherine herself put pen to paper at her home in Calabasas.

As for why it's weird ... it's handwritten, and the deed is not signed although an attachment bears her signature. What's even more hinky ... the person granting the deed is Michael J. Jackson, which is impossible because he's long dead. The estate of Michael Jackson owns the property. The document was signed April 21st and recorded 5 days later.

What we don't know ... is Katherine the mastermind of the ploy or did someone just get her to sign the attachment without telling her it would be filed with a quitclaim deed?

We've learned the estate reps had no idea this document had been filed. As we've been reporting for years, Katherine has been bent out of shape for years, claiming the estate has been stingy with her family.

For all sorts of reasons the attempt to transfer the property won't work, but it's evidence of a continuing conflict between the estate and Katherine.

Alec Baldwin BALLISTIC in Bev Hills ... SHUT UP!!!

5/4/2016 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alec Baldwin exploded in anger Tuesday, getting in a photographer's face and berating him for shooting Baldwin's wife.

Baldwin and Hilaria were in Bev Hills when he unleashed on the photog with ear-shattering volume, ordering him to "shut up."

It's unclear what preceded Baldwin's tirade, but he tells the photog in no uncertain terms his wife is out of bounds for the paparazzi ... interesting for sure, because Hilaria is a prolific Instagram user who chronicles her life on the app. She's also a correspondent for "Extra."

It's even more interesting ... Baldwin wrote an essay where he said he was moving from New York to California because he can't stand the paparazzi presence in the Big Apple. He wrote in New York Magazine, "L.A. is a place where you live behind a gate, you get in a car, your interaction with the public is minimal."

The incident occurred in a very public part of town ... Bedford Drive in Beverly Hills.

We reached out to Baldwin's rep ... so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

We all know ... the most important person in Kevin Durant's life is his mom -- THE REAL MVP -- so, when we saw her out in NYC Wednesday morning, we had to ask ... where should he play next season??

Of course, KD's future is a huge topic right now -- especially after Magic Johnson came out this week and said the Lakers need to go after him in a big way! 

Check out the clip ... Wanda Pratt is absolutely awesome (which is probably why they're making a movie about her) -- and also reveals the best Mother's Day gift she ever got from her NBA son. 

We also asked her who the real MVP is this season -- you're gonna love her answer. 

Prince Sibling War Explodes Brother Believes Someone Wants Him Declared Incompetent

5/3/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

502-alfred-jackson-prince-tmz-02There's a twist in the brewing war among Prince's brothers and sisters ... it involves a missing persons report and allegations one of the singer's siblings is trying to wrest power from the group.

Our sources say last Friday ... someone filed a missing persons report/welfare check involving Alfred Jackson, the elder half brother of Prince. According to the report, Alfred is disabled and has been living in a V.A. facility near Minneapolis.  

The person who filed the police report claims Alfred just left the facility and no one could find him.

Here's what's interesting. TMZ broke the story ... Alfred was in a meeting last Thursday with Prince's other brothers and sisters. We publicized the meeting on the website. It's odd someone filed a missing persons/welfare check report the next day.

Our sources say Alfred believes the person who filed the report is a sibling who is trying to get him declared mentally incompetent so they can get power of attorney and a second vote in what is turning into a battle over Prince's estate.

We're told Alfred and his lawyer, Frank Wheaton, went to the Minneapolis Police Dept. over the weekend to prove he was fully competent. Alfred presented proof he's got his meds, is taking them and is of sound mind. We're told the missing persons case is now closed.

UFC star Nick Diaz says training with Jean-Claude Van Damme this weekend was a dream come true -- especially since JCVD helped grow his love for fighting back when he was a kid. 

Both Nick and his bro Nate Diaz hooked up with the action legend for a clinic in leg strikes -- so, we hit up Nick to find out what exactly went down when the 3 got into the gym. 

Check out the clip ... Nick was clearly stoked to train with the guy and says things went so well, he plans to do it again soon. 

But the funniest part ... watch how quickly Nick shut down the question when we tried to ask about his brother and Conor McGregor. Dude wasn't havin' it.

Prince Woman Comes Out Of Woodwork For Chunk of Fortune

5/2/2016 1:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

502-prince-getty-02Prince's riches might get split 7 ways instead of 6 because a woman is claiming she's entitled to a cut of the late singer's multi-million dollar estate.

Lawyers for Darcell Johnston filed legal docs in Prince's probate case saying she's a beneficiary.

Sources close to Prince's family tell us Darcell is claiming to be a long lost half sister ... same mother, but different father from the singer. We're told some members of Prince's family only learned of Darcell's existence a few days ago.  

We broke the story ... Prince didn't have a will, so by Minnesota law his estate should be split equally among his 6 surviving siblings.

As special administrator of the estate, Bremer Trust bank will look into the legitimacy of Darcell's claim, although the court will have final say. 

We've reached out to Darcell to see if she had any relationship with Prince. So far no word back.

update_graphic_red_bar

7:20 AM PT -- The probate hearing ended and most of the siblings signed off on Bremer Trust bank being named special administrator of Prince's estate. 

His half brother, John R. Nelson, was not in court, but an attorney said John did not sign the consent form -- but the judge approved the petition to put the bank in charge. John was the only living sibling not present.

update_grey_gray_bar

Prince's brothers and sisters are showing up for the first court hearing to divide the spoils of Prince's life, and it's already become an acrimonious process.

Tyka Nelson -- Prince's only full sibling -- is expected to show, along with Alfred and some of the other siblings. TMZ broke the story, Tyka stormed out of a meeting Friday after Alfred accused her of disrespecting him by not inviting him to Prince's memorial service.

We're told Tyka set the stage in the meeting for a money fight ... she feels she's entitled to more than 1/6 of the estate, but under Minnesota law all 6 siblings share equally.

Prince Sister Storms Out of Family Meeting Money Fight Looms

4/28/2016 3:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-prince-tyka-getty-ap-01It didn't take long ... Prince's sister Tyka went ballistic in the first meeting with the singer's siblings and marched out of the room ... and we're told it's already becoming a money squabble.

Sources with first-hand knowledge tell TMZ, the meeting was held Thursday in Minnesota. Tyka, Prince's younger sister, was present, along with brothers Alfred and Omarr

We're told the meeting was tense, and 2 hours in Alfred expressed his displeasure that he was the only sibling excluded from Prince's memorial service, which Tyka planned. We're told an argument erupted and she stormed out of the room.

We're also told the brothers have a clear impression from the meeting ... Tyka thinks she's entitled to more than them when it comes time to divide Prince's assets. As we reported, under Minnesota law all 6 siblings -- irrespective of whether they're half or full -- share equally, but apparently Tyka doesn't see it that way.

Our sources say after Tyka left, a rep from the bank that was appointed as the administrator took Alfred on a tour of Prince's home and the area where he died "so he could properly grieve."
