Young Joc

Arrested In ATL

After Feeling Need for Speed

EXCLUSIVE

0501_young_joc_mug_wm

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Yung Joc just learned a hard lesson ... speeding can open Pandora's Box and land you in jail.

Law enforcement sources tell us the rapper was pulled over by Atlanta PD Thursday for speeding. Cops ran his license and discovered it was suspended. But that wasn't all.

YJ has a warrant out for his arrest. We don't know the nature of the warrant, but it doesn't matter much. The rapper was cuffed and taken to the cop shop for a not-so-pretty mug. He's still in custody. 

You may recall... Joc recently battled his baby mama to prevent her from airing his dirty laundry on an upcoming project called "Baby Mamas Atlanta, Virginia, Denver & Los Angeles."

More laundry in the hamper.

Momma Dee Car Accident

"Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta" star Momma Dee was rushed to the hospital after a scary car accident in Atlanta involving her Uber car service.

MD tells TMZ she was in the back of an Uber on her way home from lunch Thursday afternoon ... when a man in a Nissan struck her ride from behind. Dee says she is in severe pain and believes she's injured her back. An ambulance is taking her to a hospital right now.

Dee says the driver of the Nissan pulled over to exchange his information with her driver, but left the scene before police showed up.

Law enforcement sources confirm one person is being transferred from the accident scene -- and they say the victim made it clear ... she's a celebrity.

GUILTY of Slinging Coke & Heroin

Off to Prison After Wedding

breaking news

0422-mendeeces-lhh-instagram'Love & Hip Hop' couple Mendeecees Harris and Yandy Smith might be honeymooning in a federal prison ... because the groom just plead guilty to running a drug ring in upstate NY. 

Harris struck a plea deal in the case, and will now face 5 to 40 years in the federal pen, and/or a fine of $5 million. The feds nailed him for a drug trafficking operation that shipped cocaine and heroin to Rochester for 7 years. 

Harris will remain free on bail until his sentencing in August -- good thing for him ... since he and Yandy are getting married next month on "Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding." By the way, he also has to surrender all his paychecks from 'LHH.' 

The only good news for Yandy -- when her hubby gets locked up ... she'll get back most of the $200k she put up for his bail when he originally got busted last year.

Karlie Redd Liquor

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" chicks are best known for getting ratchet on cam -- and now cast member Karlie Redd can fuel those fights with her own line of rum.

We've learned Redd signed a deal with Local Choice, the booze bottlers behind Tiny's Tequila (as in T.I.'s wife). Spokesperson KD McNair says they first approached Redd with the plan to create a custom liquor -- but going the rum route was all her idea. 

Our 'Love & Hip Hop' sources say Redd's getting a 25% ownership stake in her brand, and will be very hands-on. We're told she'll weigh in on everything from bottle designs to testing new flavors -- a dirty job that can get sloppy... if done right. 

No word on a product name yet. One suggestion: Redd Rum -- it's murdder.

Ok, the tagline needs some work.

'Love & Hip Hop' Star Jhonni Blaze

Co-Star Throws Shade ...

Helps Spread Stripper Fight Vid

4/16/2015 12:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

What do you think "Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Jhonni Blaze is more pissed about -- the fact a video of her catching an ass whupping is going viral ... or the fact one of her co-stars helped spread it?

The video is from Jhonni's stripper days back in Houston ... a few years ago, and shows her in an epic fight with another stripper. All you need to know is Jhonni (who used to bang Drake) is the one on the ground ... so the clip is far from flattering to her.

As for why the video just surfaced ... Jhonni recently talked smack about being a badass on the 'LHHNY' reunion show -- so a fan of Moniece Slaughter (Jhonni's nemesis) dug up the clip to shame JB. Moniece was delighted and even reposted the clip ... though she eventually deleted it.

In the end, it doesn't really matter why -- it's a great video. Watch and enjoy.

Ray J on 'Love & Hip Hop'

Intense Give & Hate Negotiations ...

But He's Coming Back

EXCLUSIVE

Ray J Love And Hip Hop DealRay J wants more love ... "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" producers want more drama -- but they still hammered out a deal to keep him on the show, save his relationship, and line his pockets all at once.

Ray J hashed out his problems with the show's creator, Mona Scott, at dinner Wednesday night ... along with his girlfriend, Princess Love.

As TMZ first reported, Ray J quit the show because he felt it only showed his relationship with Princess Love in a negative light and he thought the show was hurting them.

We're told Ray J asked Mona to show more of the good parts of his and PL's relationship. Mona agreed, but insisted on keeping some drama on cam too. She knows what pays the bills. 

In the end, we're told Ray agreed to more balance -- and just to seal the deal, Mona sweetened the pot with a new contract that includes ratings bonuses. 

You take the good, you take the bad ... but most of all, you take the money.

0326_Benzino_bowling_night_launch_2We now know what former NFL stars like Bryant McKinnie, Edgerrin James, and Willis McGahee do when their pigskin days are over -- they bowl.

A bunch of former NFL stars -- a lot of 'em from Da U -- got together for their weekly bowling night on Wednesday ... but this week had a hip hop twist. Benzino from "Love And Hip Hop Atlanta" hosted, and rapper N.O.R.E. threw 10 frames too. 

Phillip BuchanonDavid Clowney and Larry Johnson also got lanes at Strike 10 Bowling -- and we know what you're asking. Who wins when world class athletes go pin-for-pin against each other?

We're told Clowney and McGahee did the most damage, for what it's worth.

Congrats ... although we're sure they don't hand out rings for that.

Quits 'Love & Hip Hop'

I Choose Princess Love Over Money

EXCLUSIVE

Ray J Quits Love And Hip Hop HollywoodThe producers of "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" have gone into crisis mode ... because we've learned Ray J has just quit.

According to our sources, Ray J feels the negativity and conflict which defines the show has screwed up his relationship with Princess Love. They've been having problems ever since her arrest in February and we're told Ray J thinks they can't solve their problems while he's part of the show.

Our sources say Ray J offered to shoot scenes that were uplifting and free of strife, but producers weren't interested, so on Monday he bailed. 

We're told producers will throw a Hail Mary Wednesday, meeting with Ray J and his manager, David Weintraub, in an attempt to change Ray J's mind, but as things stand now ... he's done.

They hate Masika Tucker for sure, but "Love & Hip Hop" stars Nikki and Marcelle Mudarris swear they did not post that ratchet billboard on the Sunset Strip with Masika's mug shot and the word, "T.H.O.T."

We broke the story ... the owner of Ace of Diamonds is suing the pair for ruining his business by plastering Masika's 10-year-old DUI mug high above the strip, calling her out as a whore.

Nikki and Marcelle's lawyer tells us, they weren't the culprits and they have no idea who did it. The attorney says his clients will fight tooth and nail in court, because they've been wrongly accused.

They're fun.

'Love and Hip Hop' Lawsuit

It's the THOT that Counts

3/21/2015 8:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0321-SUB-hazelebaby-masikakalysha-instagram-01"Love and Hip Hop" star Masika Tucker is up in lights on the Sunset Strip, and lots of people who see her now think she's a whore ... and that has has triggered a bitter lawsuit against her co-stars.

The whole brouhaha is over a couple of strip clubs. A guy named Sam Sharif owns Ace of Diamonds in Vegas and Metropolitan Nightclub in WeHo, which has an Ace of Diamonds night every Monday.

Sharif hired Masika to promote the WeHo AOD, and part of the promotion was a big, splashy billboard on the Strip. It didn't sit well with Masika's enemies, "Love and Hip Hop" stars Nikki and Marcelle Mudarris.

Nikki and Marcelle actually rent their WeHo building to AOD, so they were really pissed off when they saw Masika's billboard. When Sharif refused to take the billboard down, Nikki and Marcelle put another billboard up nearby, with Maskika's mugshot from 10 years ago with the word "T.H.O.T."

Sharif says that billboard has torpedoed his business because he was catering to high-end clients and now people thinks it's a sleazy club advertised by a whore. He also says people think he's a fraud and really doesn't own the club.

Money cures all, and Sharif is suing for a million bucks.

Fight With Althea?

What Fight With Althea?

3/21/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Joseline Hernandez must not watch her own show -- which is the only explanation for her denying under oath she ever hit Althea Eaton.

Eaton is suing Hernandez over the insane reunion show brawl. During her deposition, Eaton's attorney asked Hernandez if she has any recollection of ever hitting Eaton. You gotta watch the video of the fight and then listen to her answers.  

So who are you gonna believe ... her or your lyin' eyes?

Joseline Hernandez was attacked under oath when the lawyer representing a co-star who is suing her challenged this premise: If your picture's in a magazine, that means you gave an interview.

Joseline is being sued by Althea Eaton, who claims Joseline beat the crap out of her during the reunion show. During her deposition, Joseline accused Althea of doing an interview with "Hip Hop Weekly" ... the magazine did an unflattering story referring to Joseline as a "crack whore."

Joseline said it was obvious Althea dished the dirt because her pic was on the cover. Althea's lawyer then asked 2 questions:

-- Have you ever heard of Field & Stream?
-- Have you ever seen the National Enquirer show pictures of fat people?

Ms. Hernandez's interpretation is hilarious. You gotta watch the video.

Joseline's Boobs!!!

EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star Sincere Show is towing the party line -- despite what Joseline Hernandez says -- everything on the show is real, except for maybe one or two things.

Sincere was out Thursday night at Supperclub LA when we asked him about the "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star's deposition, in which she swore the show was scripted

Sincere was quick to defend the franchise, saying everything that goes on is 100% real. Then he took a shot at Joseline for being the one who might be fake ... and he wasn't talking about her personality.

He might have a point ...
