2/23/2015 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Rich Dollaz Arrested AgainRich Dollaz is NOT living up to his handle -- the "Love & Hip Hop" star just got busted for not paying child support ... again.

According to the Hudson County Sheriff's Office in New Jersey, Dollaz was picked up on 2 outstanding warrants. We're told one was for owing a little less than $12,000 in support -- and the other for a whopping $188,000.

He also got arrested back in October for ... you guessed it ... failing to pay child support.

Idina Menzel And Taye Diggs

We're So Rich ...

Divorce is Easy

Taye Diggs Idina Menzel Divorce
Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have made it clear in their divorce settlement ... they're both so loaded they can live nicely on their own without bleeding the other dry. 

The settlement makes it clear ... each has accrued earnings and earning capacity that makes spousal support irrelevant. You don't see that much in divorces.  

Their parting of the ways seems completely amicable ... they agreed to share custody of their 5-year-old son, Walker.

Not amicable enough for you? They're also splitting all parenting costs right down the middle, so no child support either.

As previously reported, the couple has lived apart since 2013 but recently decided to pull the plug and end their 10 year marriage.

Kinda makes you want to get a divorce ... kinda.

Jay Z & Beyonce

Can't Find a House, So ...

We're L.A. Renters Now

2/23/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jay Z Beyonce LA HomeBeyonce and Jay Z can't always get what they want -- they've been unable to find the perfect L.A. home to buy ... so, instead they haggled their way into a rental for $150K a month ... and yes, that's a deal.

They're familiar with the crib in ritzy Holmby Hills -- it's the same one they rented last summer on a short term lease ... but our real estate sources tell us they just locked it down for a full year.

We're told the power couple's been itching to move out of the Bev Hills area hotel where they've been living while house hunting -- so they decided to go back to their old digs. 

16,000 sq. ft., 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and an infinity pool with a waterfall ... is one helluva plan B. 

You'll recall, Bey and Jay paid $200K/month for the pad last year -- but we're told they dealt directly with the owner this time and knocked off $50K/mo. ... based on signing a longer lease. 

Even the Carters love a discount. 

Cody Simpson

Hey, Gigi Hadid ...

I Got Your Crash Pad Right Here

EXCLUSIVE

0220_cody_simpson_weho_launch_2Cody Simpson ain't your average struggling 18-year-old ... the singer just scored his own townhome in the middle of West Hollywood -- and no one's happier than his smoking hot GF Gigi Hadid.

Our real estate sources tell us the Aussie pop star laid down $1.18 million for a 2 bedroom, 3 bath unit. It's got just over 1,600 sq. ft. ... a ton of space for a teenager striking out on his own.

Cody's also getting some sick city views from his FOUR outdoor patios and rooftop deck -- and best of all ... he can share that with modeling's 'it' girl, Gigi.

The pad is a major bonus for Hadid ... who now gets a place to crash near all the action in Hollywood -- instead of trekking out to her parent's Malibu mansion.

Congrats, Cody! Mostly on landing Gigi ... but the crib's cool too.

Nik Richie vs. Dan Bilzerian

EPIC CAKE BEATDOWN

One Step Closer to Boxing?

2/20/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

nik-richie-launchInternet playboys Nik Richie and Dan Bilzerian have been trading barbs online for months and they finally came to blows Wednesday night … well, not really … but it's hysterical anyway. 

Richie was celebrating his birthday at Surrender Nightclub in Encore at Wynn Las Vegas when the club brought him out a birthday cake … with Bilzerian's bearded mug on it.

Rather than blow out the candles and cut the cake, Richie put on a pair of boxing gloves and pummeled it. 

NR and DB have been going back and forth for months about fighting -- Nik wants a boxing match, Dan wants it MMA. The stakes? In the hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

Bilzerian tells TMZ, "If I ever got a birthday cake with another dude on it, so I could hit it with a boxing glove after I had refused to fight him for 200K, I'd know I lost at life." 

There are no winners here.

Pam Anderson

Hubby Seeks Annulment

She Defrauded Me!

EXCLUSIVE

0219-pam-anderson-rick-salomon-01

Pamela Anderson defrauded Rick Salomon into marrying her ... so Rick claims, because we've learned he's just filed legal docs asking a judge to annul his marriage.

TMZ broke the story ... Pam filed for divorce in L.A. last week, citing irreconcilable difference. But this week Rick filed his own legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- in Las Vegas, claiming the marriage should be nullified because Pam deceived him.

Sources connected with Rick will not disclose the nature of the fraud, however they say Rick has solid proof she bamboozled him into marrying her.

The couple married in January 2014.

Rick is also asking the judge to rule there is no community property in the marriage. Rick is loaded ... winning huge sums in poker last year. We're told his fortune is vast ... hers is not.

The annulment was filed by Rick's lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, who also represented Britney Spears in her Las Vegas annulment.

Rick obviously is also asking the judge to deny her spousal support.

Birdman Screwed Me Too

Now Open the Books!

EXCLUSIVE

0217_jas_prince_drake_birdman_TMZBirdman is getting called on the carpet by the guy who discovered Drake, and the guy thinks Baby has a M.O. -- stiff the people who made you a success.

Jas Prince filed new legal docs demanding that Cash Money open the books on the millions of dollars Drake has generated for the label.  

Jas is pissed because he's gotten a grand total of $2 million for his find, even though he was promised a huge chunk of the profits. And there are reports Cash Money has made $40 million from Drake.

So Jas -- whose dad is J. Prince -- wants to shine a light on Birdman's money practices.

Jas isn't alone -- Cash Money has already been sued by Lil Wayne and Young Turk, both of whom think Birdman has been shorting them.

They may be little and young, but they will NOT be shorted.

Instagram's 'Most Interesting Man' is in the process of custom building a new Baja racing truck, and has to clear out space ... in his NINE-car garage! So DB made the tough call to ditch his 2013 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster.

Bilzerian has put the car up for sale on eBay with a "Buy It Now" price of $500,000 ... about $150k less than he paid for it. And in case you think the car is worn down -- it only has 957 miles on it.

The Lambo does NOT include a guarantee to get you chicks -- à la Dan -- but it won't hurt.

EXCLUSIVE

Teresa Aprea Sued

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Aprea has been slapped with a huge laundry bill -- her employees claim she shorted their checks and made 'em pay to clean their own uniforms.

According to court docs ... a former bartender and server at Aprea's NYC restaurant Angelo's of Mulberry St. says Aprea and her husband would only pay them for 7 hours -- even though they routinely worked 10 hour shifts. They also claim they paid out-of-pocket to wash their unis ... but NY law requires employers to pony up. 

It's gotta sting ... Aprea famously told Teresa Giudice  -- serving 15-months for fraud -- "karma's a bitch" ...  but now she's the one facing a class action suit.

The employees' attorney -- David Gottlieb -- is demanding the Apreas shell out up to $2500 per worker for unpaid wages and overtime, uniform cleaning costs, plus an unspecified amount of damages.

Bravo, Karma.

Amber Rose and Khloe Kardashian can shut down their Twitter beef -- because Tyga is not sleeping with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner ... according to Tyga.  

Tyga hit up "The Breakfast Club" -- the same radio show where Amber blasted Kylie -- to clear up the rumors he's banging the youngest Jenner sis. He explained, "No, I'm not dating Kylie. I wanna be clear to everybody, I didn't leave my family to be with Kylie. That's ridiculous."  

Responding to a report someone called child services -- Tyga claims law enforcement has NOT reached out to him about the possibility he has committed statutory rape. He added ... although he hangs out with Kylie, Kendall is usually there too. Although ... we've seen them out alone on multiple occasions.

Tyga also talked about his feud with Drake, and took a stand on the Lil Wayne/Birdman war … claiming he hasn't received a single dollar in royalties from Cash Money.

More beef than a butcher shop.

Lindsay Lohan

I Got Esurance to Donate $10K

To My Community Service Org

2/17/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0216_lindsay_lohan_esurance_TMZ2Lindsay Lohan successfully lobbied a big company to shell out $10,000 to her community service organization, just days before a judge decides if her community service was legit.

Lindsay is in the hot seat for some of her community service hours performed with London-based CSV, after prosecutor Terry White scoffed at the credit LiLo received for meeting with audience members after her London play. White also complained that Lindsay got credit for "work shadowing experience," where kids followed her around London. Problem was ... at the time she wasn't even working.

Well now TMZ has learned Lindsay contacted Esurance -- which featured LiLo in a Super Bowl ad -- and lobbied the company last Friday to give $10,000 to CSV.

We've learned Lindsay told Esurance execs she's been doing volunteer work for CSV lately because she likes what the org does for poor kids, and that's why she asked for the donation.

Our sources say last Saturday Esurance agreed to give CSV the $10K.

The problem ... Lindsay's due back in court Wednesday because the prosecutor has challenged her community service. It's possible the judge could ask CSV for more info about Lindsay's community service and the money could taint the legitimacy of CSV's response.

Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, says, "TMZ has stooped to a new low. To take Lindsay's positive efforts in supporting CSV and turn them into something negative simply to sell a story is offensive." She adds, "Lindsay has been involved in helping to raise funds for this wonderful organization since she started her community service there and she has continued her work as a volunteer, even though her community service was completed weeks ago."
