Chris Brown Threatening and 'High on Drugs' ... Claims Ex-Tour Mgr.

6/27/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0624-chris-brown-tmz-02Chris Brown allegedly cornered a female tour manager and went on a threatening, drug-fueled tirade so intense, she jumped off the tour bus and quit on the spot.

Sources connected to Chris' tour tell us the incident went down May 23 during Chris' European tour. Nancy Ghosh -- who's worked with the likes of J Lo, Kanye West and Justin Bieber -- claims Brown cursed her out in a dispute over her employment terms.

The day after the incident she fired off an email to Brown's team ... in which she explained she felt unsafe because Chris has been "irrational and high on drugs." Ghosh also claimed Brown referenced "what he did to Mike G" ... and threatened to do the same to her. TMZ broke the story ... Chris' ex-manager, Mike G, sued him for an alleged beatdown.

Ghosh said she refused to stay on the bus after the argument out of fear for her safety. 

We're told a production manager on the tour also complained, through his lawyer ... claiming Brown has been verbally abusive and threatening. 

We've reached out to Chris' camp ... so far no word back.

Drake Former Producer is Just Swell

6/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0624-detail-injuries-tmz-02Drake's muscle packs a mean punch ... according to the guy on the receiving end.

We got these pics of the injuries of producer/rapper Detail, who claims the bruises were inflicted at the hands of Drake's security guard.

We're told the injuries were so bad he was hospitalized for days ... with a broken jaw and other injuries that required several surgeries.

As we reported, Detail claims Drake invited him to his home back in 2014 on the pretext of working on a project, but it was really an ambush. Detail says Drake was pissed he wouldn't work exclusively with the Canadian rapper.

Detail says he was so badly hurt he couldn't work for a year, and he asked Drake repeatedly, and in vain, to cover his medical expenses. When Drake refused, Detail had lawyers, Panish Shea & Boyle, file a lawsuit.

Our sources say Detail's camp is worried Drake's crew may be in L.A. for this weekend's BET Awards, and they're scared of more retaliation.  

Chris Brown's Manager I Didn't Steal and ... Oops, You Forgot to Fire Me!

6/24/2016 12:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0624-chris-brown-tmzChris Brown's manager made good on his threat to add defamation to his lawsuit against Brown, and says there's no way he could have stolen the singer's cheddar.

Hours after Brown posted 2 videos saying Mike G had been fired for stealing his money, the now estranged manager filed new legal docs. In the new lawsuit, he says he's never had access to Chris' money because another business manager is solely responsible for finances.

Even though in the videos, Chris says he'd canned Mike over the cash ... we're told Mike claims he never got a termination notice until AFTER he filed his lawsuit.

We broke the story ... Mike G's also suing for assault, battery, false imprisonment and breach of contract after what he says was a bloody beatdown by Chris

Mike's Lawyer, Patty Glaser, released this statement -- "Sadly, Chris Brown is once again lashing out against those who were closest to him and is refusing to accept responsibility for his actions. Making up false claims against Mike G to deflect attention away from his continued violent behavior is shameful. We are looking forward to our day in court when Chris Brown will be held accountable.”

EXCLUSIVE

0623-chris-brown-TMZ-02

Chris Brown has more legal woes ... the guy he hired to rehabilitate his image after the Rihanna beating is now suing Chris for allegedly doing the same to him.

Mike G claims he was hired in 2012 not only to change Brown's image but to get him out of debt and off drugs. Mike G says he did well by Chris, who had a resurgence in popularity. 

Things allegedly turned bad last month, but Mike G claims without provocation, Brown took him in a room, brutally attacked him with repeated punches to the face and neck, which landed him in the ER.

The lawsuit claims Brown, rather than being remorseful, began mocking Mike G on social media and bragging to friends about the beating. Mike G says Brown had the audacity to tell people working on his tour, if they got out of line he'd beat them just like he beat Mike G.

Mike G says Brown's rage was drug-fueled and the suit mention concern for retaliation from Brown's "gang member friends." 

Mike G's attorney, Patty Glaser, tells TMZ, "We did everything we could to resolve this in a non-public way to avoid damage to Chris Brown. Regrettably, as outlined in our complaint, Chris Brown has proven to be his own worst enemy."

11:00 AM PT: Chris just responded to the lawsuit in an Instagram video, claiming he fired Mike G for stealing money from him. Mike G's lawyer says that's not true and they will be adding a defamation claim to the lawsuit.

Porn Star Christy Mack Creates Domestic Violence Emojis ... Black Eyes, Bruises

6/23/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-christy-mack-emoji-twitter-tmz-01The former porn star who claims she was attacked by her MMA star ex-boyfriend has launched a new line of emojis using images based on the brutal photos of her injuries ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The woman behind the concept is Christy Mack -- who claims ex-UFC star War Machine beat the crap out of her in 2014 ... nearly killing her in the process. 

Mack says she was recently approached to develop an emoji app and wanted to use the platform to bring attention to victims of domestic violence ... so she created MackMoji. 

"The decision to include a few emojis with a black eye, bruising, and so on is a way of bringing attention through shock value," Mack says.

"I'm willing to risk some people using them in a negative way to get the point across."

"So many are afraid to speak out, often times because they’re scared their partner will see history of their cry for help. This simple emoticon could save a life. I want everyone to know they’re not alone."

MackMoji will be released Thursday with a portion of the proceeds going to the Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence foundation.

EXCLUSIVE

0622_drake_tmz-2Drake drives a hard bargain ... if he tries hiring you but you turn him down, he'll have someone beat you up -- this according to famed rapper/producer Detail.

Detail has just filed a lawsuit against Drake, claiming the famous Canadian offered Detail a plum job back in 2014 as his exclusive producer. Problem was ... Detail didn't want to be tied to one guy, so he declined.

According to the lawsuit, the rejection didn't sit well with Drake, who became irate. Time passed but the bad feelings lingered. Detail claims in June 2014, Drake invited him to his Calabasas estate, on the pretext of working together again.  

Detail says he arrived at 2 AM and was met by Drake's bodyguard, Chubbs, who coldcocked him and broke his jaw.

Detail says during the beating, Chubbs yelled, "I will beat all your asses, including your bitches. I don't give a f***. I will hit you again. Do you think Drake is soft? You think Drake's a punk?"

The producer says Drake set him up for the beating, and he wants lots of cash.

0615_quani-before-the-attack_instagramPuma from VH1's "Black Ink Crew" is calling out 2 of his co-stars for allegedly masterminding an attack on his wife that left her battered and bruised.

It all went down at the "Central Intelligence" premiere 2 weeks ago in NYC. Puma and his wife, Quani, were taking pics in the theater lobby when they say a woman pounced ... slugging Quani in the face.

Puma says he didn't recognize the woman, but believes she was sent by Ceaser and Dutchess -- 2 other 'BIC' cast members ... and he's at least half right.

C & D were at the premiere, and admit the woman was their "intern," but they tell us Quani is the one who attacked ... hitting the woman with a folding chair, "like some WWE s***."
