Lisa Marie Presley Kids in Protective Custody Claims Estranged Hubby Has 'Disturbing Photos'

2/17/2017 6:22 AM PST

0217-lisa-marie-presley-tmz-02Lisa Marie Presley's twin daughters are in protective custody after authorities found "pictures and disturbing videos" on what she says is her estranged husband's computer.

According to new legal docs, the images on the photos and videos were disturbing enough for authorities to take the 8-year-old girls away from both parents. Lisa Marie says, "I have no idea what else may be on those devices and fear that there are more and worse images and evidence in these un-analyzed devices."

Authorities found the images after executing a search warrant on Lisa Marie's home. Sources familiar with the investigation tell us ... it was Lisa Marie who found the images and notified cops.

Lisa Marie, the daughter of Elvis Presley, also says she's broke and living with her daughter, according to docs obtained by Daily Mail.

Sources tell us the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services is conducting an investigation and for now the children will remain in protective custody.

Paul Walker Death Lawsuit Porsche Celebrated Carrera Crashes

2/15/2017 4:11 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0215-paul-walker-tmz-01A Porsche employee gleefully shared news with fellow employees of a slew of crashes of the Porsche Carrera GT -- the model in which Paul Walker died -- saying it would boost the value of the remaining cars.

In new legal docs obtained by TMZ, lawyers in Meadow Walker's wrongful death lawsuit against the car company revealed Porsche concealed emails from them ... emails about the Carrera.

One of the lawyers for Paul's daughter was reviewing company emails on his office computer that were heavily redacted. The lawyer was shocked when he reviewed the same emails on his iMac home computer and found he could see the portions that were not visible on the office computer.

Among the emails from 2006, an employee wrote as many as 200 of the 1280 Carrera GTs which Porsche had produced had been "totaled" in the first 2 years they were sold ... 2004 - 2006.

The Porsche employee who wrote the email goes on to say, "This would be great news to the remaining owners as the GT becomes more rare."

The employee also told this story ... "Another Carrera bites the dust as a bodyshop mechanic who claimed he was going less than 30 MPH smashed into a telephone poll. Looks like he was going more than 30 to me!"

There's another email from another employee who is reacting to the number of wrecks, saying, "This is in the back of my head every time I get behind the wheel of one of these. It's just hidden behind the shit-eating grin!"

Paul died in 2013 when he was a passenger in a Carrera GT that swerved out of control, hit a lamp post and tree and then burst into flames.

We reached out to Meadow's lawyer, Jeffrey Milam, who told us, "Any ethical company would have withdrawn the car from the market -- or, at the very least, warned the public about its dangers."

The lawyers are asking the judge to impose sanctions on Porsche for allegedly deliberately hiding the emails from them.

We called Porsche ... so far, no response.

Matt Stafford Couples Trip to Mexico ... Without Pregnant Wife

2/15/2017 12:38 PM PST

0215-sarah-ryan-instagram-01

Question -- if your wife was pregnant with twins and due next month, would you still go on a couples trip to Mexico without her?

Matthew Stafford just did and his wife couldn't be more supportive.

The Detroit Lions QB is currently in Cabo with Matt Ryan and his wife, Sarah Ryan. The two families are super tight and usually take couples trips together.

Matt's wife, Kelly, didn't make the vacation (we're guessing an international trip so far into the pregnancy isn't the best idea in the world) ... so Matt made the trip without her.

Sarah posted a photo of the gang at dinner. Kelly commented, saying, "Loving everything about this picture except for the fact that I'm not in it and stuck in Michigan."

She added, "Missing all these beautiful people! #jealous."

The twins are reportedly due at the end of March. We're guessing all 4 Staffords will make the trip next year.

Lonzo Ball Will Be Better Than Steph Curry!!! ... Dad Says

2/15/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Comparing Steph Curry to UCLA star Lonzo Ball is insulting ... to Lonzo anyway ... that's according to Ball's dad, LaVar, who says his son is going to be BETTER THAN CURRY ... the 2 time NBA MVP.

A lot of NBA analysts say Lonzo's ability to shoot from deep, pass and finish make him a 6'6" version of Curry, but when TMZ Sports talked to the eldest Ball he shot the comparisons down.

"You can't compare my boy to anyone," ... adding, "He's gonna be better than Steph Curry in the NBA!"

Just as a reminder ... Curry has won the last two NBA MVP's and is currently averaging nearly 25 points and 6 assists in the toughest basketball league on the face of the planet.

Listen, we'd doubt Mr. Ball, but he's got one son who's scored 72 points in a high school game, another who's scored 92, and one who just might be the best player in college basketball.

So, it's obvious he knows something we don't.

Madonna Adoption Could Have Been Derailed Over Rocco Custody Fight

2/13/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0210-madonna-rocco-gettyMadonna had multiple good reasons to end her custody war over Rocco ... if she didn't, her bid to adopt two kids from Malawi would have come to a grinding halt.

The judge who green lit Madonna's adoption last week spent a long time understanding the circumstances surrounding her custody dispute with ex-hubby Guy Ritchie ... so says an official from the Malawi courts. We're told the dispute was of "paramount concern" because the judge didn't want the adopted kids thrown into a "toxic" family environment.

Since the case settled and all seemed copacetic with Guy, the judge gave the thumbs-up.

As we reported, Rocco bailed on Madonna a year ago during her tour and moved to London to be with Guy. Rocco now spends the school year in London and summers in NYC.

A court-appointed guardian will travel to the U.S. and evaluate the family dynamic before the adoption's finalized.

LaMelo Ball's Dad He'll Score 92 Again Easily ... And Average 50 Next Year

2/12/2017 12:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

If you were impressed with Lonzo Ball's little brother, LaMelo, notching 92 points in a high school game this week get used to it, 'cause the Ball brothers' dad says it'll probably happen again next year.

TMZ Sports talked to LaVar Ball and he told us the astounding 92 points 'Melo scored Tuesday night was a hint of what the 15-year-old will do next year when he doesn't have to share the team with his brother, LiAngelo.

"That's a preview of what he's gonna do ... on the fact that Melo is my only son that won't have to share the spotlight."

When we we asked if it was possible the kid could average 40 or maybe even 50 points a game next year, Ball's answer was simple ... "Easily."

BTW -- LaMelo pops into the video at the end ... and even though he's a basketball wizard, it's obvious he's something else, just a humble 10th grade kid who lets his dad do the talking for him.

And pops is really good at his job in this video ... especially when he gave it to the haters who've been criticizing the way 'Melo got his 92.

Michael Jackson Cousin Trent Says Some of Singer's Siblings Out for Money Grab

2/9/2017 1:53 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0209-trent-jackson-katherine-jackson-TMZ-AP-01The nephew ordered to stay away from Katherine Jackson says he knows what is really going on ... some of Michael Jackson's siblings are plotting a money grab against the MJ estate.

A judge clearly sees it differently, siding with Katherine, who claims Trent Jackson has been fleecing her out of money and isolating her from her family. Trent, who Katherine says she is now scared he may physically harm her, has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from her and her home.

Sources close to Trent tell TMZ, he's adamant he did nothing untoward and believes some of MJ's brothers and sisters want him out of the way so they have a clear path to Katherine and MJ's estate.

We're told Trent believes some of Katherine's kids will now try and influence her to put pressure on Michael's estate to give her a bigger piece of the pie, and he believes they want to cut themselves in on the action.

Here's the problem with Trent's theory. Katherine has no right to simply get more money because she wants it. She gets a healthy stipend, and the duty of those in charge of the estate is to preserve and grow the assets for the benefit of Michael's 3 kids and his designated charities.

And, Trent has another problem. We're told he refuses to surrender the keys to Katherine's guesthouse where he's been living, but the restraining order is clear ... he has to give up the keys and move out.
