'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee Busted Again for Stalking Daughter After Child Cruelty Arrest

10/18/2018 6:55 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Tommie Lee got her dumb ass hauled into jail Wednesday night for stalking of her own daughter ... just 24 hours after Tommie allegedly slammed the child into a school locker the day before.

The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star outdid herself, even by her own low standards, by getting arrested TWICE within 24 hours. The first bust came Tuesday night when she was booked for battery, aggravated assault and child cruelty. Cops say Tommie unloaded on one of her daughters at the child's middle school in Cobb County, GA.

Tommie posted a $27k bond and was released Wednesday morning at 4:40 AM -- but she was also slapped with a court order to stay away from the daughter.

Apparently, she just couldn't stick with that program. She violated the order by making contact with her daughter within 3 hours of getting out of jail.

Tommie was back in handcuffs Wednesday night, and she's currently being held without bail.

Tekashi69 Time to Make Big Changes ... It's Career First Now!!!

10/18/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 is ready to make his career a top priority and to make it happen ... some heads are gonna roll. 

Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ ... Tekashi and his closest confidants are downsizing his entourage. From here on out, he only wants music biz professionals around him who are focused on making him the biggest star possible. 

We're told Tekashi's riding high after a successful international tour, and wants to reap the benefits by making life better for himself and his family. He's been spending way more quality time with his GF and his 2-year-old daughter. 

You'd have to say ... it's a great time for him to clean up his act. As we reported, his old home was raided a couple weeks ago. Although cops found a gun, Tekashi said it wasn't his and he wasn't living there. The insinuation is clear ... he's had some bad seeds hanging around.

We're told his longtime manager and CEO of the label, Tr3way, will only be bringing people onboard who can produce for Tekashi. The rebrand is already in the works too, 'cause sources say Tekashi is planning for a major city national tour here in the States.

Just a couple months ago, 6ix9ine told us he was nervous about ending up back in prison for one of his court cases. 

From the sound of it ... someone's been scared straight.

Skylar Diggins-Smith I'm Pregnant!!

10/17/2018 3:46 PM PDT
Breaking News

Skylar Diggins-Smith is winning even in the off-season ... 'cause the WNBA superstar is pregnant with her first child!!

The 4-time All-Star and husband Daniel Smith announced the big news on Wednesday with an Instagram post of the sonogram captioned, "Can’t wait to meet you!"

Obviously, it's great news for the couple ... but could be bad news for the Wings -- they might've lost one of their best players for a little bit (if our math's right).

The WNBA season kicks off in May, and if Skylar is at least 12 weeks preggo, she's most likely gonna need some time away from the squad.

FYI -- it's incredible how quickly female athletes can get back to competing after giving birth. Candace Parker returned to practices a little over a month after giving birth in 2009 ... and Olympic swimmer Dara Torres competed again just 3 weeks after having a child in 2006.

Congrats to the couple!!

Shareef O'Neal Focused On NBA After Heart Issue ... But I Love Fashion Too

10/17/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

UCLA hoops star Shareef O'Neal says, despite being sidelined this season with a heart issue, he's still 100% committed to his dream of going to the NBA ... but admits he also has FASHION on the brain.

We broke the story ... Shaq and Shaunie's son was diagnosed with an issue that will require open heart surgery putting a halt to his hoops career, but according to O'Neal, not a stop at all.

"Basketball is still my main focus," O'Neal said when we got him out in L.A.

But, it's far from his ONLY focus ... because the 6'10" highlight machine says he's gonna use his time away from the court to build his skills in another area he loves.

"The NBA is something I've been wanting to do for a long time, but this is the opportunity to try to find other things if so. I mean, I've been doing a lot of stuff with fashion lately."

Shareef says he gets a lot of inspiration from his big brother Myles, who's making his name as a big-time model. As far as his dad's foray into the clothing world, not as much.

"I'm looking more for a higher-end fashion, I know how his mindset works."

Shout out to Shaquille O'Neal XLG Big & Tall Men's Clothing ... no shade from us.

T.I.'s Melania Video He Crossed a Line, No Spouses or Kids Says Presidential Hopeful

10/16/2018 1:52 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There are better ways to voice your displeasure for President Trump than by dragging the First Lady through the mud, and T.I. has gone waaaay too far ... so says former Barack Obama cabinet member Julian Castro

We got the former HUD Secretary Tuesday at Reagan National, and asked about T.I. portraying Melania Trump as his personal lapdancer in the Oval.

Julian says there's no room for lewd antics in our democracy. Although, we gotta say ... that's a funny response considering Trump's exchange with Stormy Daniels today.

He's adamant mafia rules should apply -- as in, spouses and kids are off limits when bashing Trump, or any other politician. Julian's speaking as a very interested party because he's said he's probably running for Prez in 2020.  

Julian remembers Obama dealing with similar attacks, but he says that doesn't give anyone the right to go after Melania. He adds, there are civil ways to disagree with Trump ... none involve strippers.

T.I. Blasted by Melania For Look-alike Stripper Video

10/16/2018 8:25 AM PDT

8:20 AM PT -- Stephanie Grisham has elaborated on her initial tweet by releasing a statement, saying, "Like it or not, she is the First Lady and this is the White House. It's disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics."

She continued, "These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country - it needs to stop."

T.I. is going directly after President Trump and the First Lady with a salacious video of a Melania look-alike stripping in the Oval Office ... for T.I.!!!

Melania's office is firing back at Tip for the video he released over the weekend ... it shows him in the Oval, kicking back smoking a cigar. After Trump leaves the White House, "Melania" walks in wearing nothing but her infamous "I Really Don't Care" jacket ... but only for a few seconds.

Suddenly, she's naked and on the Presidential desk giving T.I. full view of ... everything.

T.I. was clearly trying to draw the ire of POTUS ... slapping the caption "Dear 45, I ain't Kanye" on the video.

Melania's rep Stephanie Grisham tweeted, "How is this acceptable? #disgusting #boycottT.I."

No response yet from T.I. ... but seems like mission accomplished for him.

Chris Pratt, Anna Faris Officially Sign Off on Divorce

10/16/2018 6:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have pulled the trigger on their divorce by signing the final docs that will make them single again ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ, they have put their John Hancocks on the papers that will make their divorce final. We're told they will get joint custody of their 6-year-old son Jack. As for the property settlement, as we reported, they have a prenup.

Anna's lawyer, Disso Queen Laura Wasser, asked the judge Monday to remove the case from the court system and have a private judge handle the case instead. The point -- there's a huge backlog in the court system and it takes forever to get a final divorce judgment. A private judge speeds things along.

TMZ broke the story ... Wasser did the same thing for Ben Affleck and Jen Garner ... asking the court to allow a private judge to take over the case. 

Jack Osbourne Meghan & Harry's Baby Might Be the Real-Life Jon Snow

10/16/2018 7:28 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jack Osbourne says a real-life "Game of Thrones" scenario might be what we need to get more excited about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal baby -- and guess who their kid would be?

We got the famous father of 3 and British royal subject Monday in Studio City on the heels of Meghan and Harry's pregnancy announcement. He seemed a little underwhelmed by the news -- even with CGI predictions on the kid's looks -- but when our photog suggested a potential 'GoT' situation, Jack ran with it.

Truth is, Jack and our guy totally geeked out over the royal cousins all plotting against each other to take the throne -- and suggested Harry and Meg's baby could be the Jon Snow!! They've got a whole explanation for the comparison ... although Jack pointed out one MAJOR flaw in their theory. 

If you love 'GoT' AND the royals ... you'll LOVE this clip. If ya only like one of 'em, you're still gonna love it.

Exclusive Details

Offset's not slowing down just 'cause Cardi B's birthday has come and gone ... he's still dropping tons of cash for his new wife ... for some super expensive jewelry.

We're told the Migos rapper is giving the "I Like It" rapper a necklace, charm bracelet and Kulture's name emblazoned on a set of earrings. Offset reached out to Pristine Jewelers' owners Avi and Ofir 2 months ago to plan something special for Cardi's 26th birthday.

A post shared by Avi (@pristine_jewelers) on

The 3 pieces are 100 carats strong in diamonds. Offset flew out the jewelers to personally hand over the cache to Cardi ... who couldn't contain herself and flaunted the sparkle at parties last weekend.

Cardi also sported the new bling Saturday night when she performed at Drake's concert. All in all ... we're told Offset dropped over six figures. And, that's just the tip of the birthday iceberg. Remember ... Offset also gave Cardi a Lambo earlier this month.

No word yet if Cardi's sexual birthday request was fulfilled.

'Family Matters' Star Darius McCrary Denies Child Abuse ... My Ex 'Concocted' Story

10/16/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Family Matters" star Darius McCrary says it's absurd to think he dislocated his 2-year-old daughter's arm -- as his estranged wife claims -- and suggests his daughter was coached into faking the injury. 

We spoke to Darius after his estranged wife, Tammy Brawner, filed docs claiming he dislocated little Zoey's arm in March 2018 while attempting to take her to the bathroom. Zoey was reportedly diagnosed with Nursemaid’s Elbow ... a common childhood injury where the child's elbow partially dislocates.

She believes Darius is to blame, but he told us all that happened when he picked up Zoey at the time and she said, "Ow." He acknowledges Tammy took Zoey to a hospital, but says he saw evidence she was fine ... and revealed his conspiracy theory about his ex. 

Meghan Markle No Baby Bump Yet During Aussie Tour

10/15/2018 4:42 PM PDT

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are all smiles Down Under on the heels of their pregnancy announcement ... but royal watchers might say something's missing.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex hit up Australia Monday on the first day of their royal tour there ... no doubt still sporting wide grins after Kensington Palace announced earlier in the day they're expecting baby no. 1.

The former "Suits" star is due sometime next spring ... around their one-year anniversary. We know what everyone wants to see, but it just ain't there yet -- the royal baby bump.

Harry and Meghan -- who will be Down Under for the next 16 days -- started their tour at Admiralty House and a meeting with Governor-General Peter Cosgrove. He's no fool, Cosgrove had some Aussie themed baby gifts ... a pair of baby Ugg boots and a stuffed kangaroo.

As we reported ... Victoria is the odds-on favorite name, at 8/1, if it's a girl. Leading boy names are Albert/Arthur/Philip ... all at 10/1. Remember to bet responsibly.

Slash Bans Perla From Their Son's Show ... She Says She's Going

10/15/2018 3:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Slash is slamming the door on his ex-wife, Perla Ferrar ... blocking her from their son's huge Hollywood performance -- opening for Slash -- but it looks like she's totally ignoring the ban.

Sources close to Perla tell TMZ ... the Guns 'n Roses rocker banned her from attending the Tuesday night gig at the Hollywood Palladium -- 16-year-old London's band, Classless Act, will warm up the crowd before Slash takes the stage.

We're told someone from Slash's camp reached out to Perla and told her she wouldn't be able to attend. The bad blood between them is nothing new -- they just settled a drawn-out, contentious divorce that ended with him having to shell out serious gwap.

Despite the stay-away notice ... Perla said Monday she was planning to be at the show. She said on social media, "Can’t wait to see my baby boy London open for his father at this historical event tomorrow night! #icouldntbemoreproud."

Unclear if Slash is going to take more drastic steps to keep her out. We've reached out to his camp, but no word back yet.

Breaking News

Don't stick a fork in La La and Carmelo Anthony just yet ... 'cause the actress says the couple is trying to figure things out after separating in 2017.

We broke the story ... La La and the NBA superstar started living separately after going through a rough patch last year -- but neither side ever filed divorce papers.

When asked about their status on Saturday, La La revealed it's not totally over for the couple of 15 years ... and their focus is on their 11-year-old son.

“We’re good. I mean ... we’ve been together for a really long time, so we’re figuring out how to make it work for what is best for Kiyan and what is best for us," she told People.

The two have hung out in public several times over the past year -- most recently teaming up to support the family of a 15-year-old boy who was murdered in New York. 

There are also reports the couple was packin' on some heavy PDA at an event over the weekend ... so that's a good sign for their marriage.
