‘Love And Hip Hop’ Star

My Uber Driver Wouldn't Charge Me

And I Got Arrested!!!

7/31/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0730-teairra-mari-instagram-02Love and Hip Hop’ star Teairra Mari just learned the age-old Hollywood maxim isn't true... fact is, actresses who don't have juice CAN get arrested.

Teairra ate a delicious lunch at Crustacean Wednesday in Bev Hills, and called for an Uber to take her to her next stop.

The drive started ok, but went to hell when Teairra asked the driver if she could use his charger for her iPhone. He said no, and she got pissed. The driver claims she began punching him and grabbed the charger. He pulled over, she refused get out and the cops were called.

Teairra says she never tried stealing his charger, says she only "tapped him" and he was beyond rude and told her to get out of the car like she was a "f***ing prostitute."

Cops were called and the driver made a citizen's arrest for battery and theft. Law enforcement sources tell us they found the charger in her purse.

The lesson ... if she's a charger, they're gonna charger.

Benzino

Sentenced to Hit the Books

Guns in Airports for Dummies

7/20/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0717-benzino-TMZ-01Benzino dodged a year in prison for bringing his loaded gun to the airport -- and instead the judge is forcing him to go to school ... the easiest school ever, we're guessing.  

The former “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star pled no contest to putting his loaded 9mm through a TSA checkpoint in Atlanta. He says he took the wrong laptop bag.

Benzino was sentenced to one year of probation, a $500 fine, 700 hours community service, and a crash course in gun safety ... which he has 60 days to complete.

Sure, it'll take a while to tick off the 700 hours, but the gun safety class? Just remember this, Benzino ... DON'T TAKE LOADED GUNS TO THE AIRPORT -- and you should pass.

Extra credit: Nightclubs are also bad for loaded weapons.

Sex Tape Dough Ain't Cutting It

... My Rent Is LATE!

7/18/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0717-nikko-smith-tmz-01"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Nikko London -- star of one of the most successful sex tapes of 2014 -- is now allegedly stiffing his landlord, and on the verge of getting evicted.

According to docs filed in Fulton County -- London owes just $786.29 in back rent on his apartment, but fees and utilities bump it up to $1,083.56.

The pink notice taped to his door is a clear sign Nikko's days are numbered in the place if he doesn't pay up quick. But we're told he's been telling neighbors he's moving to a new place up the street.

0717-sub-nikko-apartment-tmz-02As we've reported ... London's Vivid sex tape with co-star Mimi Faust was on fire when it came to sales, so you have to wonder where Nikko's cut went.

Rulers and shower rods, perhaps?

Nikki Trashes Mally Mall's Crib

... Cops Called

7/8/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE


Love And Hip Hop’ stars Nikki Mudarris and Mally Mall's breakup just went NUCLEAR -- he says she went berserk, smashing $30k worth of fine china ... until the neighbors called the cops, and we got the video.

We’re told Nikki showed up at Mally's home in Bev Hills Monday night and refused to leave -- and took out her rage on the fancy plates ... which she claims she bought.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... cops showed up just before 11 PM for a report that Nikki was vandalizing the property. We're told she cooled down at the sight of badges, but Mally caught her making a quick exit in this video.

Mall didn’t want to press charges on his ex ... so cops just escorted her off the property.

Sources close to Nikki say she freaked out because Mally broke her custom made iPhone 6 in a jealous rage days earlier. Since she paid for the china ... this seems like the worst revenge ever.

Mally seemed to recover just fine -- we got him later that night leaving Ace of Diamonds strip club, where he'd just dropped $20k!

Not Just a Rumor ...

I'm Pregnant and Benzino's the Dad!

EXCLUSIVE

0706-benzino-althea-tmz-01Former "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars Althea Eaton and Benzino are expecting their first child together -- and this time they mean it.

Sources close to the fiery couple tell TMZ, Althea’s 5 months deep, and expecting a baby boy in November.

Pregnancy rumblings first surfaced in March, but only because Althea blasted the news out on social media. The confusion started when she and Benzino deleted the pregnancy announcement ... leaving fans to wonder if something went wrong.

They've been mum on the topic ever since.

It's a big step for the couple. Their tumultuous relationship was well documented on 'LHHA' until they were kicked off the show after season 3 for the now infamous reunion show brawl and death threats against co-stars. 

Diaper duty should be fun ... for the hot-tempered duo.

EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Momma Dee lived her final days as an unmarried woman ... to the FULLEST -- as in, grinding on the floor with a totally yoked stripper -- and we got the video.

Lil Scrappy's ma got a next-level lap dance from a stripper at her bachelorette party in Atlanta this week. The guy came in wearing construction worker garb, which she helped him out of, real quick.

Dee says she's 51, but that's hard to believe, based on her reaction when the man-meat-for-hire tries to dry hump ... her face!  

Get it, Momma.

Princess Love

Ray J Gave Away

MY Bentley!

EXCLUSIVE

Ray J's ex Princess Love lost way more than a BF when they broke up -- she lost the freakin' BENTLEY she bought with her own dough!

The "Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood" star is calling BS on Ray J's claim that HE bought the whip for her last year. Princess was in Bev Hills -- walking, mind you -- when she claimed SHE paid for it, but Ray J jacked it back.

Princess accepts some of the blame though since she's the "dumb ass" who put the car in Ray J's company's name. But she IS pissed about what he did with it after they split. 

Don't cry for her too much -- Princess is strolling into Cartier in this clip.

‘Love & Hip Hop’ Star Sincere

Karlie Redd Will Make

Great Granny Porn

6/15/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Karlie Redd must be gunning for fans of a particular porn fetish -- at least according to another 'Love & Hip Hop' star who says she's just too damn old to be having sex on camera.

Sincere Show ... from 'L&HH Hollywood' ... has heard all about Karlie's offer to get down and dirty for Vivid. She hasn't decided yet if she's gonna do it -- so he decided to give Karlie some advice.

Sincere's take is no-holds barred, hysterical ... and a little ageist. Karlie's official age is -- she doesn't have one. 'L&HH' fans estimate her range to be from 37 to 49.

Karlie won't like what Sincere has to say -- and neither will fans of GILFs.

I'm Throwing Crazy Party for My Dog

... But No Bitches Allowed

EXCLUSIVE

0611_ray_j_love_dog_tmzRay J is throwing a lavish birthday party for the dog he once shared with Princess Love, but he's laying down the law ... she's not gonna screw this pooch.

First the party ... Boogotti the Maltese will be the birthday boy at a $30k blowout at Petrock Hotel and Spa in Encino, CA. He's pulling out all the stops -- a red carpet, a dog treat station and a special cake for pooches. There will also be plenty of human food.

But Princess Love won't be seeing Boo all gussied up in his tux, because she's not invited. The 'Love and Hip Hop' stars had a bitter break up after she bolted with Boo's 3 Maltese mates. They tried working things out but they're on the outs again.

Butt There’s A Catch

EXCLUSIVE

0605-karlie-redd-vivid-porn-offer-ALCOLE-PHOTOGRAPHY-03Karlie Redd has proven she's cool with showing off her assets, but now she's got an offer to go pro ... by starring in a XXX production.

We've seen the letter Vivid Entertainment sent to the "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star ... offering her a chance to shoot two sex scenes.

If she accepts, Karlie's guaranteed $25k, but the real money comes on the back-end. We're told she has the possibility of making over six figures, because as the folks at Vivid know (Kim K, Courtney Stodden, Mimi & Nikko, Farrah Abraham) celeb sex tapes tend to be profitable.

Karlie will have to go all in though. The offer requires her to follow in Farrah's -- umm, footsteps ... with a backdoor scene. 

We're told she's seriously considering it ... so get your credit cards ready.
