Master P Battle Over Kids Getting Abusive ... Estranged Wife Claims

11/30/2015 5:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-master-p-sonya-miller-INSTAGRAM-TMZ-01The war between Master P and his estranged wife Sonya Miller has reached a new level -- she's accusing him of verbal and physical abuse ... while plotting to turn their kids against her.

Miller was granted a temporary restraining order against P back in October, and a hearing is scheduled for Tuesday to make the order permanent. 

According to court documents, Miller claims P has "brainwashed" their kids to go against her and used his money and power to wield influence over them. She also describes an incident from "long ago" where Master P allegedly hit her in the face and dragged her across the floor. She says she ended up in the hospital.

As of now, Master P must stay 100 yards away from Sonya. We'll see what happens in court on Tuesday. We've reached out to Master P's reps ... so far no word back.

Minnie Driver My Neighbor Pulled a Driveway Ambush

11/30/2015 3:59 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Minnie Driver's got serious beef with her nextdoor neighbor, and she says their confrontations have gotten so heated ... she had to go to court to force him to stay away.

Driver got a restraining order against Daniel Perelmutter in Los Angeles Superior court. In the docs, Driver says he told her to "f*** off and die" on several occasions in her driveway.

He jumped out in front of her car twice and she had to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting him ... according to the docs.

Driver says the most recent incident was a week ago when she had her 3 kids in the car. She says she got out of the car and Perelmutter cursed at her, and blew cigar smoke in the children's faces. She doesn't mention any motive for what she calls "aggressive conduct."

Perelmutter must stay 15 yards away from Driver and her kids ... at least until a hearing next month.

For his part, 74-year-old Perelmutter claims Minnie tried to run him down with her car. He admits there's tension between them -- due to an ongoing land dispute -- but claims Minnie's been even more aggressive than him.

Kim Fields 'RHOA' Can Wait ... I Got Math Homework

11/30/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-kim-fields-rhoa-GETTY-01Kim Fields isn't making her new 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' gig a priority, according to co-workers who find her impossible to work with ... due to an inflated ego. 

Sources on set tell us some of Kim's co-stars are livid she's been showing up late and leaving early for shoots. In one case, we're told she left Kandi Burruss' baby shower early -- during taping -- so she could help her kids do math homework.  

Also, when they were filming in Jamaica, Kim showed up with her kids even though producers told the cast absolutely NO KIDS.

We're told Kim acts like she's better than everyone else, and still in her '80s heyday of 'Facts of Life.' Sources close to Kim say that's way off base, and she's a "consummate pro" who works with producers to ensure she meets her responsibilities to work and family. They also point out she shows up for every shoot on time and in good spirits. 

But with other cast members feeling like Kim disrespects 'RHOA' rules and schedules ... we'd say there's a juicy chick fight brewing.

Chris Rock Mystery Girl's Dad Says She Was Not Adopted ... Mum on Money

11/26/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-chris-rock-ntombi-splashThe biological father of the 7-year-old girl who lived with Chris Rock and his estranged wife for 7 years tells TMZ the Rock family never adopted the little girl, but he refuses to say if any money changed hands.

Crispen Khanyile says his ex-girlfriend gave birth to Ntombi on February 23, 2008 ... this according to a private investigator's report commissioned by an interested party in the case. According to the report, both Crispen and the mother, Precious Ndebele, were unemployed at the time, living on the outskirts of Johannesburg.

The couple had 2 other kids and it appears the situation was increasingly desperate. When the private investigator interviewed Precious last year, she said she was living in a slum and selling secondhand clothes on the streets. The investigator said the conditions were "not conducive for human living." 

Crispen would not discuss the arrangement with the adoptive parents, but simply said we should speak with Malaak, Chris' estranged wife.  

It's interesting ... the P.I. says Crispen told him last year Ntombi was living with adoptive parents in the U.S., but when we spoke with Crispen on Wednesday, it was clear ... there was NO adoption.

As we reported, Ntombi has been living in the U.S. with the Rock family on a visitor visa, requiring her to return to South Africa once a year. Chris has not seen the girl since he split with Malaak and we're told he believes she did something shady to get Ntombi into the U.S.

And one final twist ... Malaak's lawyer just broke his silence and said his client is actively trying to legally adopt Ntombi. He did not say when the process started or what has taken so long.

Casey Kasem Kids Sue His Widow

breaking news

1125_jean-kasem_gettyCasey Kasem's kids and his brother think his widow abused him so badly it caused his 2014 death.

Julie, Mike and Kerri Kasem just filed a lawsuit against Jean Kasem for wrongful death. In the docs, they say Jean repeatedly blocked them from seeing their father, and they say that separation caused him great emotional distress.

The children along with Casey's brother, Mouner, say their father was doing as fine as could be -- considering he had dementia -- when Jean took him on a 7 day journey all over the Western U.S. ... but when they returned, he had a massive bed sore that was deeply infected, according to the docs.

The suit also says Casey's death, on Father's Day, was the result of a staph infection, UTI, and sepsis ... all brought on by Jean's neglect.

Jean dodged criminal charges for elder abuse back in May ... when L.A. prosecutors cited insufficient evidence of any wrongdoing. We're told that didn't sit well with Casey's children, and their frustration was part of their motivation to file this lawsuit.

They're suing for $250,000 for Casey's pain and suffering during his life, as well as a host of other damages.

Chris Rock Mystery 7-Year-Old Lived with Family on Pleasure Visa

11/25/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1124-chris-rock-gettyThe 7-year-old South African girl who mysteriously began living with Chris Rock and his now estranged wife for years has been in the U.S. with the help of a visitor visa ... TMZ has learned. 

As TMZ reported, a little girl named Ntombi began living with Chris and Malaak in 2008, when she was just 6 months old. There is no evidence the Rock family ever adopted the child, but they treated her like a daughter, making her part of the family and enrolling her in school. 

Our sources say Ntombi entered the country on a B2 "visitor for pleasure" visa. The visa allows the visitor to stay in the U.S. for up to 1 year, after which time the visitor must go back to her country and fill out paperwork before coming back.  

We're told Ntombi and Malaak went back to South Africa every year and reconnected with the girl's biological family, which included a mom, a dad, a brother and a sister. We're told each time, Ntombi and Malaak returned to the U.S. in short order.

Sources connected with Chris say he has no idea if money ever changed hands from his family to Ntombi's parents. We tried reaching Malaak's lawyer, but never got a call back.

Gavin Rossdale Out with the Nanny ... But Not THAT One

11/24/2015 3:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1124_Gavin_rossdale_new_nanny_INFGavin Rossdale has reset the nanny button ... the former Gwen Stefani look-alike nanny who tabloids linked to him is gone, ain't the one he's out in public with any more.

Gavin, the nanny, and one-year-old Apollo strolled the streets of Brentwood Tuesday ... and the nanny looks all business. We're told she's been with the family since Apollo's birth. 

Our sources say Gavin and Gwen will share joint custody of the kids and that includes all child-rearing decisions ... including the selection of nannies. 


Chris Rock to Wife The Girl Who Lived with Us is NOT My Daughter

11/24/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-chris-rock-daughter-old-game-GETTY-01Chris Rock has not seen the 7-year-old girl who lived with him since she was an infant in more than a year ... and we're told it's because he believes his estranged wife Malaak did something shady to get her here in the first place.

It's a bizarre story ... and one that triggered an international investigation. Here's what we know. Back in 2008, a 6-month-old named Ntombi from South Africa began living with the Rock family. The girl stayed in the family house ever since. Ntombi was even enrolled in a New Jersey school.

Ntombi's biological parents reportedly were unemployed South Africans and somehow the kid ended up at the Rock home.

Everything changed last year when Chris and Malaak began divorce proceedings. We're told Chris maintained his relationship with his 2 biological daughters but hasn't seen Ntombi since the split.

Around the same time as divorce docs were filed, South African officials opened an investigation to determine how the child went from their country to the U.S., when there was no evidence of a legal adoption.

As for why he went radio silent with Ntombi ... sources connected to Chris say he never signed legal docs to adopt her, and bringing her over to the U.S. was all Malaak's doing.

As far as we can tell there was never an adoption. It's unclear how and why the biological parents allowed Ntombi to live with the Rock family for years. 

Chris' rep tells TMZ he does not have an adopted child. We tried reaching Malaak's lawyer, but did not get a return call.



Sherri Shepherd Keep Signing Child Support Checks ... Appeal DENIED!

11/24/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123_SHERRI-SHEPHERD-&-LAMAR-SALLY_TMZ_gettyTime for Sherri Shepherd to crack open that checkbook -- her last ditch effort to avoid paying child support to her ex was shot down in court.

Sherri had claimed her estranged husband Lamar Sally defrauded her by getting a surrogate to carry a baby for them. She thinks he did it only for the purpose of securing a fat child support check, once he knew they were divorcing.

Well, Lamar is going to get that check after all -- because an appeals court agreed with the lower court's decision that Sherri was fully on board with the surrogate plan and in fact, paid for most of the process.

Bottom line for Sherri, she'll continue with the terms of their settlement ... paying $4,100 per month until the infant hits 13 -- then it's $4,600.

We suggest auto-pay. Less fuss. 


Scott Disick Here's My Plan to ... Win Back Kourtney

11/23/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1120-scott-disick-kourtney-kardashian-TMZ-01Scott Disick is going all out to prove he's worthy to Kourtney Kardashian, but in true Lord D fashion his strategy involves making a few extra dollars while he's at it.

We've learned Scott is unloading his Bev Hills party pad. He went off the deep end while living there ... partly because the place is a magnet for hot chicks and wild parties -- a real panty dropper. 

The home's already in escrow in the high $4 million range. Scott bought it for $3.69 mil ... so he'll likely pocket some cash off the sale. We're told Scott's looking to make real estate his main source of income post-rehab instead of club appearances. He's already been out hunting for other investment properties.

As for putting down roots -- Scott's reportedly looking to move into the same neighborhood as Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner ... just a stones throw from Kourtney and the kids.

Baby steps ...
