Kelis to Nas Oh, My Lawyer's a Fat D**k?? Yours Just Screwed You!!!

3/13/2018 9:27 AM PDT

When Nas and Kelis go to war, their lawyers jump right in also ... according to Kelis, who says Nas' attorney is calling hers a "dick."

Of course, the exes have an ongoing dispute over their child and she just filed docs, obtained by TMZ, which describe a deposition for which she recently sat. Things apparently got very heated ... and Kelis says Nas' lawyer called her attorney a "fattie" and a "dick."

Kelis' attorney, Navid Moshtael, says he's used to being called names -- he's a lawyer, after all -- but says this is the first time it's come from an "experienced attorney" in front of clients and on the record.

Imagine the transcriber's fingers flying during the argument.

Kelis says the name-calling is gonna cost Nas, because she says his team blew it when they stopped the depo to get childish. She doesn't sound like she's up for giving them a do-over, either.

Tommy Lee's Son Brandon I Was Defending My Mom ... When Dad Attacked Me

3/7/2018 7:09 AM PST

7:30 AM PT -- Police confirm with TMZ when they took the initial crime report they were told Brandon and Tommy Lee were arguing over a social media post. They say as of now Tommy has not backed down ... he's pressing charges against Brandon. The police report does not mention alcohol.

Tommy Lee's son, Brandon, is being investigated for criminal battery after his dad filed a police report, but we've learned Brandon is saying his dad lunged at him after he called Tommy out for attacking his mom, Pam Anderson.

Family sources tell TMZ, Brandon has been living part-time with Tommy Lee -- Brandon says because he's trying to help his dad overcome alcohol issues. The sources say Brandon and Tommy Lee got into a heated argument Monday night because of Tommy Lee's post attacking Pam for talking about their relationship with Piers Morgan.

Tommy tweeted, "Think she'd find something new to discuss instead of rehashing old s*** but I guess she has nothing else going on & needs attention. Signed, 'The Abuser' (who she texts everyday & asks for me back)."

The sources say Brandon claims Tommy was drunk and lunged at him and he punched his dad in self-defense. The sources add Brandon doesn't drink at all and wants to get his dad sober.

Tommy posted Tuesday night a different version, saying, "My fiance and I were in bed when my son busted into the room and assaulted me. I asked him to leave the house and he knocked me unconscious. He ran away from the police. THAT'S the truth."

Matt Barnes Ex-Wife Rejects Olive Branch ... Trashes NBA Star Instead

Breaking News

Matt Barnes asked his ex-wife last night if they could finally make peace -- instead, a war ensued -- with the two sides trashing the hell out of each other online. 

It started when Matt posted a message to Gloria Govan on social media saying, "Wanna wish the mother of my children a very Happy Birthday! Hope this day is everything you hoped for and more."

"Although things have been rocky to say the least the last 4yrs I hope that for the sake of our two beautiful baby boys we can come together & co parent them to the best of our abilities! No more games or bullshit.. They need both of our love & support equally!"

"We lead different lives now but we still on the same team."

Seems harmless and well-intentioned, right? Gloria didn't take it that way and fired back ... 

"Thank you, I think? And yes One can only continue to pray that you take your own advice and learn to peacefully co parent! But until then I'll see you in court next week because you love a frivolous lawsuit. But hey let's keep co-parenting."

Yeah ... Olive Branch attempt REJECTED. 

Of course, Matt responded with some thoughts (and allegations) of his own ... 

"Well ... stealing money my social security # & forging my signature to buy your parents night club & house is pretty serious but hey .. I tried! See you in court! Oh & happy bday."

So much for burying the hatchet ... 

Jennifer Hudson, David Otunga Child Therapist Off Limits

2/15/2018 1:37 PM PST

Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga cannot use their son's child therapist to make their custody case ... at least that's what the lawyer for the 8-year-old is demanding ... TMZ has learned. 

The lawyer the judge appointed to represent David Jr. has filed legal docs asking the judge to prohibit Jennifer or David from calling the therapist to the stand to testify about the boy's state of mind and how the custody war has affected him.

We're told the reason the lawyer wants the protective order is so David Jr. can feel comfortable opening up with his therapist about both parents, without fear they will learn what he said.

Both sides, we're told, have been put on notice that David Jr.'s lawyer is asking the judge for the order.

No decision has been made, but it's a good bet the judge will sign on.

Blake Griffin Sued for Palimony You Abandoned Our Family for Kendall Jenner!

2/14/2018 9:07 AM PST

Brynn Cameron has filed a palimony lawsuit against her baby daddy, Blake Griffin, claiming he shamelessly abandoned her and their children for Kendall Jenner.

The lawsuit slams Griffin as a heartless cad who left his fiancee after "cruelly embarrassing his family with his public fawning over Kendall Jenner."  

Brynn and Blake were on and off for 8 years, they have 2 children together and were engaged, but he called off the wedding last year and then set his sights on Kendall.

Brynn uses Blake's own set of circumstances -- being traded by the Clippers to Detroit after being promised he was the future of the L.A. team -- saying, "Griffin himself, however, knows very well what breaching promises is all about. After all, Griffin had no problem trading Brynn Cameron, his former fiancee, and the mother of his 2 children, for reality television star Kendall Jenner."

According to the lawsuit, filed on Valentine's Day by high-powered celebrity lawyer Bryan Freedman, Griffin made repeated pledges to Cameron, promising to support her after insisting she abandon her sports marketing job and interior design business.

The suit says Brynn did everything for Blake ... "Cameron was not just the mother of Griffin's children and their caregiver, she was also a constant support for Griffin -- his personal assistant, meal planner, scheduler, stylist, publicist, party planner, nurse, nutritionist, branding expert, therapist, cheerleader, basketball and fitness consultant, and more."

In her suit, Brynn included love letters she received from "Blakey" reiterating how thankful he was for "all of the sacrifices" Cameron had made for him "and their family."

The suit also claims she counseled Griffin on how to deal with bad blood between him and Clippers teammate Chris Paul, claiming she advised him on how to be a better leader in the team's locker room when he was being shown up by Paul. She says the 2 had "mounting tension" between them because he felt it was no longer his team ... it was Paul's. 

According to the lawsuit, "[Cameron] strengthened Griffin's bond with his teammates and allowed the organization to see a different side of his personality rather than the hard-partying man-child Griffin had been prior to their cohabitation."

Brynn essentially sums it up, saying, "Griffin cared more about the glamour of dating a Hollywood celebrity than the day-to-day responsibilities of being a father and family man." 

And she says Blake -- who signed a $173 MILLION contract back in June -- left her in desperate straits ... "While Griffin is continuing to earn millions from his NBA and endorsement deals, Cameron and their children are homeless and cash-strapped. In Griffin's absence, Cameron's brother has had to provide Cameron and the children with financial support."

The suit doesn't specify an exact amount she wants -- but it's definitely in the millions of dollars.

Blake Griffin Dumped Baby Mama 1 Week Before Wedding ... Over Prenup

2/14/2018 10:00 AM PST

Blake Griffin's ex, Brynn Cameron, claims the NBA star dumped her ONE WEEK before their wedding date because she wouldn't sign a prenup ... and then jetted to Vegas to party without her.

In her lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, Brynn claims the NBA star made an oral agreement with her back in 2013 that she would quit her job to raise their kids so he could focus on getting a max NBA contract, worth more than $170 mil.

In exchange, Brynn says Griffin "promised explicitly that, whatever the future might hold, he would take care of [Cameron] financially and provide her a home for the rest of her life."

Brynn says she and Blake were slated to tie the knot in St. Barth's on July 28, 2017 -- but one month before the wedding, he demanded she sign a prenup.

Brynn shut him down -- claiming the prenup contradicted the oral agreement they made in 2013.

Blake then called off the wedding 1 week before the date -- and Blake sent a note to guests saying, "Brynn and I take this commitment to each other seriously and want to ensure it is done in the right way."

Instead, Brynn says ... Blake "immediately embarked on a high-profile affair with [Kendall Jenner]. The next weekend, on what would have been his wedding day, he was partying in Vegas."

Byrnn says she and Blake began couples therapy -- but he was still seeing Jenner on the side. 

It was then Brynn says Blake stopped paying her "full financial support commensurate with her lifestyle and her share of their joint property."

She's now suing Blake for palimony and she wants millions. 

Jim Carrey Legal Battle with Ex-GF's Family Dismissed

2/1/2018 7:48 AM PST
Breaking News

Jim Carrey's long, drawn out legal war over his ex-girlfriend's death won't end in a courtroom, because the lawsuits filed by Jim and her family have been dismissed ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported ... Cathriona White's mother and estranged husband filed wrongful death suits against Carrey after she died of a drug overdose in 2015. They claimed Jim had given her STDs and her despair was part of the reason she killed herself. Carrey filed a countersuit, and accused White's family of trying to shake him down for money

Now, according to court docs filed last week in Los Angeles ... both suits have been dismissed. They've been dismissed with prejudice, meaning neither side can refile. That's commonly a sign of a financial settlement.

We've got calls in to reps and attorneys for both sides.

'Basketball Wives' Star Jennifer Williams My Ex Is Abusive Please, Judge, I Need a Restraining Order

1/29/2018 10:38 AM PST

"Basketball Wives" star Jennifer Williams has fired back at her ex-boyfriend, claiming he's violent and she's deathly afraid of him.

Jennifer was in court Monday AM asking a judge for a domestic violence restraining order against James "Tim" Norman. He obtained a restraining order against her last month, claiming she slashed his tires in a rage.

Jennifer says in her new legal docs Norman is lying "purely to harass and stalk me, and possibly to drum up attention for himself and his own television show." He has a show called "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's," which is on Oprah's OWN network.

Jennifer says she did not slash Norman's tires ... she has an alibi, claiming she was at a friend's birthday brunch.

She says in her legal docs Norman has a long history of abusing her. She says in Sept 2016 at a Drake concert he verbally abused her and threatened to beat up a guy who was looking at her. Jennifer says Norman sent her a text message afterward, saying, "I'm not really the type of bitch n**** you obviously think I am for you to stand there next to me eyeing that sand n****."

Jennifer says there were other instances ... he went on her phone, confronted her and threw the phone at her, calling her a lying bitch. She says he accused her of sleeping with other men.

She says she ended the relationship last September, and since then he has been hounding her friends, asking them to get in touch with her on his behalf.

She's currently in court and has a witness ... fellow "Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada. Evelyn filed a declaration saying Jennifer called her on December 17 and said she was extremely afraid of Norman because he could be very violent.

Jesse Williams I Don't Have a Girlfriend!!!

1/26/2018 3:55 PM PST

Jesse Williams is firing back at his estranged wife, saying she's poisoning their children toward him ... and he insists she's all wet when she claims he has a girlfriend.

Aryn Drake-Lee has claimed Jesse is romantically involved with a woman the kids call Mama C. She claims it's in violation of their custody arrangement which requires them not to introduce a significant other until the relationship has lasted 6 months. He says she's a longtime mutual friend of theirs and that's it.

Jesse just filed legal docs saying Aryn has been interrogating their 2 children, trying to find fault with things he does.

She claimed in earlier docs his inconsistent schedule was disrupting their lives, hurting their development, but he calls BS, saying the kids eat their meals and get plenty of sleep while they're with him.  

Jesse says it's rich for Aryn to complain about his work schedule, saying, "This is how I always supported our family and Aryn has no problem enjoying the financial benefits, including the $50,695 per month I pay her in temporary spousal support."

As for Aryn's claim Jesse violated school rules by bringing cupcakes for Sadie's birthday, he says the treats were the teacher's idea and he only brought them with permission from her.

Kimora Lee Simmons Russell's Innocent of Rape

1/26/2018 6:56 AM PST

Kimora Lee Simmons thinks the woman who just sued her ex-husband, Russell Simmons, for rape is lying.

A photog got Kimora out Thursday after Jennifer Jarosik filed a lawsuit claiming Russell propositioned her for sex in 2016 and when she refused he brutalized her by striking and pushing her and then raping her.

Kimora takes a beat before answering, but says she believes he's innocent.

Russell and Kimora were married between 1998 and 2009, although they split in 2006, and they have 2 kids together.

As for Jarosik ... she's suing Russell for more than $5 million.

Jesse Williams' Ex He Introduced Kids to His New GF ... Started Cupcake War, Too!!

1/24/2018 9:09 AM PST

Jesse Williams' estranged wife has several new beefs with him -- the biggest being introducing the kids to his new girlfriend, and showing a complete lack of cupcake etiquette ... according to new legal docs.

First, the gf issues. Aryn Drake-Lee says the "Grey's Anatomy" star has been taking their 2 kids to his new chick's house since October -- and the kids even call her "Mama C." She also claims he took them on a mini-vacay to Big Bear Mtn. with the unnamed gf.

Aryn says this is a clear violation of the custody agreement which requires both of them to wait 6 months into a new relationship before introducing the children. 

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Jesse also broke a golden rule at their daughter's school last month. Aryn says Jesse brought cupcakes to celebrate 4-year-old Sadie's birthday -- a big no-no because the school picks one day each month to celebrate all students' bdays together. 

She claims Jesse also screwed her with Sadie. In the docs, Aryn says Sadie tearfully said "she was mad at me for not attending her birthday party" at school.

She says there are other issues ... mostly caused by Jesse's erratic schedule, and lack of notice before he picks up the kids. Aryn's asking the judge to set a more rigid and consistent schedule for his visits.

A source close to the former couple claims Aryn is making up lies because she's obsessed with being seen as a victim, and she can't do that if people see Jesse as the fun, caring, good person he is.

Ex-NY Governor Eliot Spitzer threatened an ex-girlfriend and her family ... and unfortunately for him, she recorded the violent rant.

Svetlana Zakharova Travis says she recorded the phone conversation shortly after a February 2016 incident where the disgraced politician allegedly choked her at The Plaza Hotel in Manhattan. Spitzer barked at her, "Go to Siberia and f**king die, a**hole!"

He continued, "F**king bitch. Get out of my life. If I ever hear from you again, your parents will die."

The NY Daily News first posted the audio, which Svetlana's attorney says proves prosecutors are protecting Spitzer. 

Spitzer was cleared in the alleged Plaza attack, and Svetlana ended up getting charged with extorting Spitzer for $400k.
