NFL Legend Eric Dickerson My Future Son-In-Law Is No Rapist

6/30/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0627_Eric-Dickerson-Freddie-Gibbs_gettyEric Dickerson says there's NO WAY Freddie Gibbs -- the rap star engaged to his daughter -- is guilty of raping a woman in Austria ... telling TMZ Sports he "supports Freddie 100%."

Gibbs was arrested earlier this month -- after two women reportedly claimed the rapper and his security agent drugged them after a 2015 show in Austria and raped them at Gibbs' hotel. 

For his part, Gibbs has adamantly denied any wrongdoing and has vowed to fight the charges. 

FYI, Freddie is a big name in rap -- having formerly been signed to Young Jeezy's CTE World record label, and been featured on songs with the likes of Gucci Mane, Action Bronson and E-40.

Gibbs popped the question to Dickerson's daughter, Erica, last March ... so we contacted ED to ask how his family is handling the situation.

"I don’t know too much about the specifics of the situation," Dickerson told TMZ Sports ... "but I do know Freddie and I know his character ... I believe him."

"I talked to Erica (his daughter) and she said that she knows Freddie and knows that he would never be capable of doing something like that."

Dickerson says he's also been in contact with Freddie -- and offered up some advice on how to handle the situation. 

"When I talked to Freddie, I told him the main focus is to stay positive. He told me 'I will fight this the whole way. I don’t want to go through this without clearing my name 100%.'"

Gibbs has been released on bail -- and his lawyer says he has NOT been formally charged with any crime. 

Louis Tomlinson Baby Mama Keeping Me from My Son I Want Joint Custody

6/29/2016 4:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

062916-louis-tomlinson-Louis Tomlinson has had it with his baby mama denying him access to his child, so he's now going to court to seek joint custody ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us Briana Jungwirth has been "inconsistent" in giving Louis access to 5-month-old Freddie Reign ... especially recently.

Louis wants to be a real father and present in Freddie's life, so he's going to court not just seeking joint physical and legal custody, but a 50/50 split in terms of the division of time each spends with their son.

The One Direction singer, we're told, is paying Briana around $15k a month in child support, and a judge will now set whatever amount is deemed appropriate. Louis is also renting a $1 million house for Briana and the kid in Calabasas.

Kylie Jenner, Blac Chyna, Kim K We're All One Big Happy Family

6/28/2016 6:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

They were once mortal enemies ... and now Kylie Jenner and Blac Chyna are joined at the hip, singing "I Don't F*** With You" at a Kardashian shindig.

Kylie, Chyna and Kim formed the girl group for Khloe's 32nd birthday party in Hollywood Monday night at Dave & Buster's.

As you know, Kylie's boyfriend, Tyga, is Chyna's baby daddy and the friction has been palpable, but apparently not any more.

Just as significant ... Kris Jenner was there, which means -- with Rob and Chyna's new show -- it's money making time.

Greenbacks are more potent than blood.

Calvin Harris Taylor Meeting Tom's Mom Is a Joke ... Just Ask MY Mom

6/28/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0627-calvin-harris-tom-hiddleston-taylor-swift-TMZ-GETTY-01Calvin Harris thinks it's "f****** laughable" that Taylor Swift has already met Tom Hiddleston's mother ... considering she NEVER met Calvin's parents during their 15-month relationship.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... Calvin wanted Taylor to meet his parents, who live in the U.K., but Taylor always told him it was too far away.

We're told Calvin was understandably "bewildered and astonished" when he heard about TayTom's visit to meet his mother, Diana ... in the freakin' U.K.!! Remember, Hiddleston's only been in the picture for a few weeks at this point.

What's the rush? One source says Calvin thinks Taylor's cozying up to Tom to lock down a Bond girl role ... IF he becomes the new James Bond, as rumored.

If it sounds like sour grapes, it's not -- we're told it's more comical to Calvin, who also feels like he dodged a bullet.

Exclusive Details

0627_solange_knowles_birthday_party_rental_launch_2Solange Knowles rang in the dirty thirties in a tiny town barely big enough for Beyonce and Jay Z.

Solange, along with 12 friends and family members, spent the weekend in itty-bitty San Patricio, New Mexico on a 2,200 acre ranch ... all for a very reasonable $2k.

Beyonce and Jay Z flew in for the night. The low-key shindig featured a pool party and New Orleans-style catering ... and, of course, Domino's pizza.

And to burn off the calories ... strutting around the White Sands National Monument.

There was also a mini concert ... Solange serenaded guests on a Steinway in the ranch art gallery.

Exclusive Details

0623-sinead-oconnor-tmz-02Sinead O'Connor is alive and seemingly well after Chicago police responded to a call she was threatening to jump off a bridge.

Chicago PD tried to track down O'Connor Thursday evening when O'Connor's family contacted Irish police, saying she threatened suicide.

But O'Connor is claiming cops made it all up and she never threatened to jump, saying, "some stupid bitch at Swords Garda station [Irish police] decided she'd like to throw a bit of false and malicious gossip."

Irish police told us they have no comment on Sinead's accusation.

O'Connor had reached out to family in May when she last threatened suicide -- but it's unclear if she did that again this week. Our family sources say they're trying to sort it out.

Breaking News

0621_rosie_odonnell_daughter_chelsea_launch_arrow_3Rosie O'Donnell and daughter Chelsea have buried the hatchet ... or so it seems after they were pictured together smiling -- for the first time in over a year.

Rosie and her daughters, Chelsea and Vivienne, were spotted Monday aboard the SS Hornblower cruise ship for a cancer benefit in NYC ... and as you can see, Rosie and Chelsea appear in MUCH better spirits after spending much of last year on the outs.

As TMZ reported ... Rosie called the cops claiming Chelsea was off her meds and had run away with a dude who'd been convicted on drug charges -- before taking off again to be with her birth mother. Shortly after that, Chelsea went to the media, saying she "did not love Rosie." 

Time heals?

Conor McGregor Bought Entire Family BMWs ... Dad Says

6/20/2016 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0620-conor-tony-mcgregor-tmz-instagram-02Conor McGregor is all about spreading the wealth -- buying his entire family brand new BMW 5 Series whips after he got rich in the UFC ... this according to Conor's dad. 

Tony McGregor spoke with The Independent in Ireland ... and explained how the UFC surprised his family with a gaggle of Beamers back in 2015. 

"He came home from an American trip last year, and I saw this fleet of cars coming around the corner with him in the lead car, a black BMW 5 Series," Tony said.

"I presumed it was an entourage chauffeuring him home, but he told me to hop in and asked if I liked the car? I said it was lovely and he handed me the keys and said, 'Good, because it's yours.' He bought one for everyone in the family, which was really nice."

Besides his parents, Conor has 2 sisters -- so, maybe he got a 4 car deal? 

Of course, Conor LOVES cars -- and has bought himself a bunch of expensive rides ... including a couple of Rolls-Royces

Tony dropped a whole bunch of Conor gems ... including: 

-- He didn't approve of Conor's career at first. "He was able to prove me wrong, which has made me so proud."

-- Conor started boxing at age 12 after playing soccer as a kid. 

And the most shocking part ... Tony says Conor was a really quiet kid who stayed out of trouble.

"We didn't see much of the personality he has now when he was growing up. That developed with age."

Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey We're All Good

6/20/2016 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0620-mariah-carey-nick-cannon-fathers-day-beef-squashed-INSTAGRAM-01Nick CannonMariah Carey and their twins were all smiles on Father's Day ... and Nick took a shot at the "haters" -- presumably us -- who have reported Mariah is at wits' end because he has dragged his feet signing docs that would make their divorce final.

The family, along with Nick's mom, hit up Sky Zone and there was no sign of drama.  As we reported, our sources say the custody agreement and property settlement were done deals more than a year ago and she has been pressing Nick and his lawyers to formally end the marriage, but it hasn't happened.

We're told Nick hasn't made any additional demands ... his side just hasn't pulled the trigger.  

But at least from the pics, it's all kumbaya.

Mariah Carey Baffled By Cannon Beef He's Always Had Access to the Twins

6/19/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0617_Nick-and-Mariah_DECEMBER_MAIN_instagramMariah Carey doesn't know what the hell Nick Cannon is ranting about in his angry rap about child custody and divorce ... sources connected to the singer tell TMZ.

Nick released the song Thursday, in which he says, "And now I can't see my kids 'cause the government sucks," and "It's f***** up that the time you spend with your own kids is called visitation."

Our sources insist Mariah and Nick have gotten along extremely well, especially in the child custody department. They say Mariah has never denied Nick access to the twins and Nick has always been able to see them when he wanted.

0617_Nick-and-Mariah_nov-feb_SUB_instagramAs for why Nick has not signed the divorce papers for nearly 2 years, our Mariah sources believe that Nick is being manipulated by his lawyers, because the sources say there's no beef between Mimi and Nick.

Nick raps, "It's been 2 years and I'm the one that's been waiting." It appears he's talking about getting divorced, but we're told Mariah and her lawyer have been pressing Nick to sign the docs for months and months, but he's been stalling.

At the end of his rap, Nick says, "Man, f*** it. Let's sign the papers."
