Gucci Mane's Brother 'He Didn't Let Me Go to the Wedding' ... Mom Wasn't Invited Either

10/21/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gucci Mane gave his mother and brother a fierce cold shoulder because they were not invited to his lavish wedding ... so says Gucci's youngest brother.

Nate tells us he has no idea why the rapper left him and their mom, Vicky, off the guest list for $1 million affair at Miami's Four Seasons Hotel.

Nate, who's gotten shout-outs from Guwop on tracks like "Rude," says he's happy for his big brother but sad no fancy invitation was sent his way. Adding insult to injury -- another brother, Duke, was Gucci's best man.

Little bro says the diss sends a clear message, and Keyshia Ka'oir should pay attention.

Chester Bennington I Want My Kids to Stay Close ... Left $$$ to Make Sure of It

10/19/2017 3:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chester Bennington was all about his modern family -- 6 children from 3 relationships -- and made provisions in his will to make sure they remained tight after he was gone.

According to Chester's will -- filed in probate court in L.A. County, and obtained by TMZ -- he said, "I request that my children's mothers or Guardians encourage and allow my children to visit with one another and with my extended family and the extended family of my Spouse on a regular and ongoing basis, so that my children know that they have a large and loving family."

He instructed the trustee of his family trust to make sure they all get money to cover travel expenses.

Chester and his widow, Talinda, had 3 children together, he had one from his first marriage to Samantha Olit -- and before that, he had one child with a girlfriend in Arizona. He later adopted that girlfriend's other son.

As for how much money the Linkin Park frontman left behind -- that's all under wraps in his trust.

One other interesting note -- Talinda is the executor of Chester's will, but the alternate executor is his former business manager, Jonathan Schwartz. We say former because Schwartz is now doing time in federal prison for wire fraud. He also managed Alanis Morissette, Mariah and Beyonce and was arrested for embezzling millions from his famous clients.

Nicki Minaj To Testify at Bro's Child Rape Trial They Tried To Shake Me Down For $25M!

Breaking News

Nicki Minaj will take the stand during her brother's child rape trial ... and is expected to tell jurors the mother of the alleged victim attempted to extort her for millions.

Nicki will be the star witness during Jelani Maraj's court case in NYC, where he stands accused of raping his then 11-year-old stepdaughter in 2015.

During opening arguments Thursday, Maraj's defense attorney, David Schwartz, told jurors his client's then-wife, Jacqueline Robinson, forced her children to lie to authorities in an attempt to squeeze $25 million out of Nicki.

He said Robinson told Nicki, "I can make the charges go away for $25 million." Schwartz went on to say Robinson hatched a plan to get Maraj to marry her only for the opportunity to extort Nicki. 

Unclear when Nicki herself will take the stand ... but we're sure she'll have a lot to say.

Jenelle Evans I Swear I'll Leave 'Teen Mom 2'!!! MTV Screwed Me in Editing

10/19/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jenelle Evans is putting MTV on notice about the way she says it's portraying her and her fam on this season of "Teen Mom 2" ... saying she'll leave if they don't make it right.

We got Jenelle at LAX about a week after a huge blowup she and husband, David Eason, had on a season 8 episode. Fans blasted David for verbally abusing Jenelle, and also called her a neglectful mom.

Jenelle told us she's the victim of creative editing, done purely to create more drama, and she's pissed about it. She's also angry that producers are putting subtitles on her kid because it makes it seem like he has speech issues.

Long story short ... Jenelle says MTV is screwing itself, if it has dreams of bringing back arguably the most popular chick on the series. 

Kim Kardashian Big Fun with My Lil Pumpkins

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian sure knows how to pick 'em ... pumpkins, that is.

Kim hit up a pumpkin patch Tuesday outside L.A. with North and Saint, and a little friend of theirs tagging along. Not like picking out pumpkins isn't fun enough -- the kids, including Kim, also got to enjoy an inflatable slide.

No sign of Kanye there -- he was probably laying low at home like he has been lately. All good though ... Kim held down the hay fort.

Yes, it's the great pumpkin (patch), Kim Kardashian!

Travis Barker Throws Son Epic 14th Bday Lil Pump Rocks the House!!!

10/18/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If Travis Barker's looking for another side project it should be party planning ... because the 14th birthday bash he threw his son, Landon, shamed just about every over-the-top Sweet 16.

Travis turned his backyard into a mini-concert and the headliner was Lil Pump. Pump's got the No. 3 album on the charts, so it's a big deal.

We're told there were around 100 guests, including Stevie Wonder's kids and other celeb spawns. 

Coolest part ... Landon got to share the stage with Pump and had a Louis Vuitton x Supreme-themed duffel bag cake. 

The teen summed it up perfectly ... "Last night was a movie."  

Tom Petty Private Funeral Service at Temple ... Attended by Fam

10/16/2017 6:44 PM PDT
Breaking News

Tom Petty was honored this week in a private service that appears to have been attended by only his family and closest friends ... at the same place a Beatle was laid to rest.

Tom's daughter, AnnaKim Violette Petty, posted a handful of photos from the service Monday, which was held at the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine in the Pacific Palisades. George Harrison's funeral was also held there in 2001. He was a bandmate of Tom's in The Traveling Wilburys.

We care about each other and love our bad ass father💜

A post shared by @inviteloveinvitelove on

Not many details about the procession were immediately released, but the temple was closed to the public on Monday. 

We broke the story ... Tom died earlier this month after going into full cardiac arrest ... and ultimately being taken off life support by his family. 

His official cause of death is still a mystery ... as the results of a complete autopsy are pending.

Harvey and Bob Weinstein Showdown Tues Will Get Loud, Ugly

10/16/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein and his brother, Bob Weinstein, will have a showdown Tuesday that will inevitably lead to screaming, profanities and ultimately the threat of a lawsuit that could do in the company ... multiple sources connected to the meeting tell TMZ. 

The Board of Directors of The Weinstein Co. has a meeting on the books and we're told Harvey Weinstein's firing is on the agenda. Harvey will be on speakerphone ... he's in Arizona to get treatment for behavioral issues and sex addition. His civil lawyer, Patty Glaser, will be present in the room.

Our sources say Glaser is prepared to outline multiple reasons why her client's firing violates his contract. As we reported, the company never gave him a reason for booting him out, and our sources say to this day the company has never offered Harvey or Glaser any reason. She's also prepared to argue Harvey did not violate the contract.

As we reported, there's a provision that covers claims such as sexual harassment, and as long as Weinstein reimburses the company for any settlement or judge and then pays a penalty, all is good. Glaser will note the contract was signed in October 2015 and since then there hasn't been a single claim against her client.

As strong as Glaser is, we're told the lawyers who rep TWC, O'Melveny and Myers, believe the company had every right to fire Harvey. They say the company's Code of Conduct gives them that right, but we're told Glaser's position is that the contract trumps the Code.

Now the heat ... our sources say Bob Weinstein is angry -- livid -- over the whole situation and loses control during heated conversations. Harvey and Bob are birds of a feather, and people involved in the meeting say it's inevitable things will get loud and ugly.

We're told Glaser is ready to amp things up if the Board doesn't see things her way ... which is unlikely. She can try and force mediation and arbitration, which is provided for in the contract, but if the Board won't play ball we're told she's ready to file a lawsuit.  

As one very connected source put it, "There is so much crap that will be unearthed in a lawsuit, the company just can't survive it."

Stay tuned.

Boosie Bro Off the Hook For Alleged Bank Siphoning

10/16/2017 9:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Boosie's brother is dodging serious potential jail time for allegedly stealing more than $300k from his famous sibling, but the big question ... WHY??

The D.A. in charge of Taquari Hatch's case has refused to file charges against him -- despite cops busting him for allegedly siphoning $361,000 from Boosie's account.

We broke the story ... Taquari was booked for identity theft and fraud charges after cops claimed he posed as Boosie to authorize multiple wire transfers. Taquari had always maintained he was innocent ... and it now seems the D.A. agrees -- or at least feels the evidence wasn't strong enough.

We've reached out to the D.A.'s office for clarification on why Taquari is walking away scot-free ... so far, no word back.

Brody Jenner Distant from Kardashian Fam

10/14/2017 7:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Brody Jenner seems happy for Kim, Khloe and Kylie -- who are all expecting -- but it also seems he's estranged from them.

We got the perennially handsome Jenner at LAX Friday, and he spilled some tea about the famous trio, 2 of whom are his step sisters. Brody says he hasn't spoken to any of them since TMZ announced their pregnancies.

Gotta say ... that's a big sign all is not well. As you know, Brody's father Caitlyn is estranged from the Kardashian brood, and it seems like his son is right behind.

Ariel Winter Niece Gets in Family Biz Kid Ain't Playing at $12k per Episode!!!

10/14/2017 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ariel Winter's niece ain't about the lemonade-stand life ... not when the 8-year-old wants to ball out like her super famous aunt.

Skylar Gray -- who idolizes Ariel -- landed her first big TV gig playing young Abby on the CBS sitcom, "Me, Myself & I," and already she's making more dough in one year than most recent college grads.

According to docs obtained by TMZ, Skylar's making $12,500 per episode and she's guaranteed at least 6 episodes. If she appears in all 13 episodes, Skylar stands to make up to $162,500.

Cross your fingers, kid ... because if the show's a hit, Skylar could make just over $200k that year ... as a 8-year-old.

Must be nice.

Scott Disick White House Bound After Candy Shop Opening

10/12/2017 3:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Disick has a busier day in the Washington, DC area than your average Senator does -- starting with a candy store visit, and ending with a trip to President Trump's crib. Man's got priorities.

Sources close to Disick tell TMZ ... after he hosts the grand opening celebration of a Sugar Factory in Arlington Thursday at 6 PM, he's making the 5-mile trip over to the White House for a private tour.

We're told Scott and his kids -- along with another friend and his kid -- will be taking the tour, which Disick organized earlier this week.

Imagine Lord Disick in the Oval Office! We're guessing the Prez would love the cut of his jib.

Sergey Kovalev Beat The Hell Up ... By Tiny Toddler Son

10/12/2017 12:25 PM PDT

Sergey Kovalev just lost his 3rd straight fight, but it wasn't Andre Ward this time, it was his cute little toddler son, who totally laid the smack down on dear old dad with a vicious right hand.

Sergey is in Oxnard right now training for a big comeback fight with Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (we copy pasted that name) and got some work in with a new sparring partner, his son Aleksandr.

Watch the fight, the nearly 2-year-old "Little Krusher" clearly controls the action, then lands the defining blow to his pop's face, which is enough to get a decision from us.

Get the kid signed up, he's a natural.
