EXCLUSIVE

Barry White's son is almost broke and nearly homeless ... and he claims it's all because he's getting the raw end of the deal from his father's trust.

Darryl White is suing the legendary singer's estate and Barry's widow, Glodean White, saying she promised he'd get his fair cut, IF he agreed to not sue her to challenge the amount of money he was getting.

Darryl says Glodean never let him see the will after Barry died in 2003, instead it was more like ... trust me.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, he says he agreed and got payments up until September 2015. Darryl, who's a singer himself, believes Glodean is using up his father's dough to support her lavish lifestyle. He's suing to finally get a look at the will, and a proper accounting of what he's due.

We've reached out to Barry's estate and Glodean, so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Ariana Grande is back on U.S. soil, but Taylor Swift was not involved in the flight that got her here ... as some reports have claimed.

The flight touched down Tuesday afternoon in Florida ... where Ariana's boyfriend, Mac Miller, greeted her.

Katy Perry I'm Proud Of My $25 Mil ... I Smashed the Glass Ceiling!!

5/23/2017 10:20 AM PDT

Katy Perry's $25 million deal to be the lead judge on "American Idol" wasn't just for her -- she says she struck a blow for women everywhere who've been underpaid to do the same job as a man.

Katy was on NYC'S WKTU radio Tuesday and told "Cubby and Carolina Bermudez In the Morning" ... she's proud as hell her fat paycheck is more than "pretty much" any man made before her.

The pop star goes on to give a preview of what kind of judge she's going to be, and said she's the perfect fit for the show at the perfect time.

As we reported ... Perry's getting paid more than most of her big name 'Idol' predecessors. However, she'll need a massive raise before she matches Simon Cowell's reported $45 mil a year.

Future Lawsuit Rocko Claims Stonewalling I Want the Mask Off His Pay Stubs!

5/23/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tracking down Future's money is like trying to find a "magician in a room of smoke and mirrors" ... so claims Rocko, who wants a judge to help him secure the rapper's financials.

Rocko filed new court docs last week in his lawsuit against Future, asking a judge to force Future's camp to stop stonewalling over his demand for financial records.

Rocko says Future's lawyers at Epic Records have been offering boilerplate answers and legal mumbo jumbo as to why they can't give Rocko the docs. He's says Future's hurting any chance of settlement. Rocko's suit claims he discovered Future, was promised a cut of profits and then was kicked to the curb.

You'll recall ... Rocko also wants a judge to set up a court controlled account to hold cash Future makes from his Nobody Safe Tour that's already underway. 

Rocko's expecting at least $10 mil.

The Weeknd Heads to the Hills for $20 Mil ... Snaps Up Mega Mansion

5/22/2017 6:24 PM PDT

The Weeknd has a new place to call home in one of the richest areas of L.A. -- he just copped one helluva mansion in Hidden Hills for nothing short of $18 million.

Abel's new pad sits on 3 acres of land and is spread out over more than 13,000 square feet. It's also got 9 bedrooms, 11 baths and a sick guest house out back.

The inside ain't too shabby either. As you might imagine, this place comes with all the bells and whistles of a multi-million dollar mansion -- a home theater, wine cellar, music lounge and its own gym.

Looks like the real Weeknd is right here.

Katy Perry Scores $25 MILLION Deal For 'American Idol'

5/22/2017 7:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Katy Perry is getting a staggering $25 MILLION to judge "American Idol" ... this according to sources familiar with the negotiation.

Multiple sources tell us ABC was desperate to sign a name before the Upfronts last week, when honchos announced she was the lead judge. As one source put it, "Katy had all the leverage. If ABC ended up announcing the show without a judge, they'd be screwed."

TMZ broke a story way back in 2012 that 'A.I.' was trying to get Katy as a judge but she rejected the network's $20 mil offer.

As we reported, ABC tried to get Kelly Clarkson but at the last minute she jumped ship and went to NBC's "The Voice." NBC also snagged Jennifer Hudson.

We're also told ABC is "on the verge" of signing the deal with Ryan Seacrest to host the show. Sources connected with the first run of 'Idol' tell us Ryan was making $15 mil a season at his high point. We're told Jennifer Lopez was also raking in $15 mil a season. So Katy blew them both away.

James Cameron Sued 'Titanic' is a Rip-off ... I'm the Real Jack Dawson!!

5/22/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

James Cameron stole the life story of a Florida man who worked in the yacht industry and used it for the lead character of "Titanic" ... according to his lawsuit.

Stephen Cummings claims he's the inspiration for Jack Dawson -- played by Leo DiCaprio. According to the docs, Cameron learned about Cummings through word of mouth about events that took place in Brevard County in 1988 and '89.

If this seems unlikely ... wait. The ex-"yacht master" also says the depiction of the Titanic sinking was NOT based on history, but instead on stories he told friends about 2 of his relatives who were aboard the real doomed ship. You probably guessed -- the wife survived, the husband did not.

Of course, 1,517 souls were lost that fateful 1912 night ... so we'd imagine there are more than a few such stories.

In any event, Cummings wants $300 million ... plus 1 percent of royalties.

Riff Raff I'm Outta the Codeine Castle ... It's Yours for $1.4 Mil

EXCLUSIVE

End of an era ... Riff Raff's ridiculously purple Las Vegas home he affectionately dubbed the Codeine Castle is up for grabs.

Riff Raff moved out about a month ago, and stands to make a small profit -- he purchased it for $1.3 million 2 years ago ... and it's listing for $1.4 mil. 

It ain't your average suburban family -- every one of the 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms is grey and purple. The backyard doesn't stray from the theme either ... grey lagoon pool with a purple slide. There's also a swim-up bar and another tiki bar in the yard.

The home is listed with Zar Zanganeh of Luxe Estates & Lifestyles.

UFC's Rashad Coulter $50k Fight Bonus is 'Life-Changing'

5/21/2017 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The unlikely star of UFC 211 is a brand new fighter -- a single father of 2 -- who says the $50k fight bonus he got for trading BOMBS with Chase Sherman that night has changed his life forever. 

Rashad Coulter's incredibly gutsy and explosive performance impressed Dana White enough to fork over the $50k ... and Coulter says it will have an immediate impact on his family.

Coulter and his 2 kids live in a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment -- and Coulter says the bonus (along with his fight check) will help him make a down payment on a house.

In fact, Coulter says he made more in those 9 minutes in the Octagon than he would have made in 1 YEAR in his previous job as a bill collector.

Coulter's got a great story. He's clearly motivated ... and tells TMZ Sports he won't stop until he's the champ.

Michael Jordan '84 Olympic Jersey Hits Auction Block

5/20/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Jordan's Team USA jersey is goin' up for auction ... and could end up being one of the most expensive pieces of M.J. memorabilia ever!

His Airness rocked the #9 jersey when Team USA dominated the 1984 Summer Olympics and is part of Grey Flannel Auctions' summer catalog ... and we're told it's the only known jersey of its kind.

Of course, '84 was the last time an amateur-led team won the gold medal for the Red, White and Blue ... before switching to pro ballers with the "Dream Team" in 1992.

M.J. memorabilia tends to rake in HUGE bucks -- Jordan's "flu game" shoes sold for $104K in 2013 -- and our friends at Grey Flannel are estimating a big haul with the jersey.

Bidding starts at $10,000 on June 2nd.

Good luck.
