'Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood' Star Conor's Doing Drugs ... If He Wants Same Money as Floyd

3/19/2017 8:18 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Conor McGregor must be high as a kite if he thinks he deserves equal pay to fight Floyd Mayweather ... so says "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star Jason Lee ... an unofficial member of The Money Team.

We got Jason Saturday at Toast in L.A., and he made it clear Floyd's ready to fight ... but that Conor's holding things up over ridiculous money demands. 

Jason also has a dismal outlook on the future of boxing.

One more thing ... he's got a pretty specific date in mind as to when fight will go down -- even though Dana White begs to differ.

Floyd Mayweather's Ex-Chef Out Of TMT 'I Don't Think He Saw Me As More Than a Lesbian'

3/19/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather's ex-personal chef -- the woman who famously said she was paid $1,000 a plate -- is no longer part of Floyd's crew ... and says the fact she's gay may have played a role. 

We spoke with Chef Q who is now backtracking on her $1,000 a plate claims ... saying there was no REAL set rate for her. Sometimes she would get paid fat. Sometimes nothing. 

But sometime after the Manny Pacquiao fight, Chef Q says her relationship with Floyd fell apart and she doesn't really know why ... but she has her theories. 

"I don't think he's ever looked at me past as just a gay person or a lesbian." 

Chef Q says some comments that were made during her time with TMT were hurtful and felt homophobic. 

Still, Chef Q says she wants to have a relationship with Floyd moving forward -- she considers him family ... but knows they have to work out their issues.

We reached out to Floyd's camp. So far, no word back. 

Kendall Jenner Robbery Another Security Guard Bites the Dust

3/18/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0317-kendall-jenner-gettyKendall Jenner fired her security guard one day after she was robbed blind in her own home.

Our Kardashian sources say the guard was posted outside the house, which raises the question ... why fire him if it was an inside job and the thief was almost certainly a partygoer who made his or her way into Kendall's bedroom and stole $200k in jewelry?

It appears the fam is upset because when Kendall left for an hour around midnight, someone who was not an invited guest got inside the house.

You'll recall, Kim's longtime bodyguard, Pascal, was given his walking papers after the Paris robbery, because he left the apartment with Kourtney and Kendall shortly before the invasion.

We're told there are surveillance cameras in and around the house, and cops are hopeful it will give them a hot lead.

We're also told the items stolen include a Rolex and a Cartier watch.

Atreyu from 'NeverEnding Story' Deep in Debt Over Decades Old Horse Injury

3/18/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Noah Hathaway, who played Atreyu in the 'NeverEnding Story' films, is still plagued by a spinal injury from film rehearsals over 30 years ago that cost him nearly $1 million in surgeries.

Noah's been in and out of hospitals ever since he was 12, after a rogue horse crushed 2 of his lower vertebrae during a rehearsal for the movie. Noah somehow plowed through filming in great pain, but it's lingered for decades.

Noah's bills have amounted to $800k over the years. He's out of money and his latest spinal fusion surgery put him $184k in the red. His neighbor has set up a GoFundMe account, trying to raise $200k to cover his costs.

If Noah gets the full $200k, the $16k balance will go in part to his dog's vet. Cash the French bulldog has some serious cysts that need to be removed.

Birdman Pissed at Rick Ross ... He's Using Me to Sell Records

3/17/2017 2:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0317-rick-ross-birdman-tmz-2Rick Ross made a new enemy when he took aim at Birdman ... dissing him hard over his legal war with Lil Wayne and a bunch of other stuff. 

Sources close to Birdman tell TMZ ... he's pissed Rick dragged his name through the mud in his song "Idols Become Rivals." We're told Baby doesn't appreciate the disrespect, especially because he sees the track as a lame publicity stunt.

It's harsh stuff, for sure. Rozay's lyrics include, "Catholic record labels, n***** gettin' raped, boy / Birdman's a priest, moans in his synagogue." The song also touches on Birdman's dealings with WayneDJ Khaled and claims he doesn't pay his artists or own his cars.

As for the song being a stunt? Rick does have a new album, "Rather You Than Me" ... so he'll clearly benefit from generating beef. 

Bottom line: Birdman feels Rick stepped out of line, and needs to put some respeck on it!

Kendall Jenner Robbed Investigators Comb House for Clues

3/16/2017 5:30 PM PDT

Kendall Jenner got a visit from CSI -- a forensic fingerprint specialist looking through her house for evidence in the $200k jewelry heist.

The investigator coolly entered Kendall's Hollywood Hills pad Thursday with his briefcase full of CSI tools to find any prints left behind. The guy sounded confident on the way out, but fingerprints around most of the house could be meaningless because ... as we reported, there was a bunch of people in the house.

Kendall's jewelry box might yield some clues IF the crooks touched it or any of the jewels left behind. 

We broke the story, cops believe it was an inside job.

April the Giraffe Big Money Now on the Line

0315_april_the_giraffe-2b

April the Giraffe is about to become a cash cow, for the benefit of the animals.

The long-necked, pregnant creature has had a camera trained on her for more than a month, and millions have watched and waited for what promises to be an awesome delivery.

Now here's the money part. The live stream had a sponsor, but the pregnancy has gone on so long the deal just expired. When that sponsor signed on, the live stream wasn't a thing so all the sponsor promised to do was feed the beast ... literally, by sending food to the Animal Adventure Park in NY.

Now, with 80 million viewers and 2 billion viewed minutes, the sponsorship is worth a bundle, and we've learned the Park is looking for a new sponsor who will pay big money to get its logo on the feed, which will last until the baby giraffe is 5 days old.

The Park is being super charitable ... 1/3 of the profits will go to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and the rest of the loot will go toward the care of April, her kid and her animal pals.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Negotiating with Bravo For Triumphant Return

3/16/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0315_kim-zolciak_nene-leaks-tmz-2bKim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes are deep in negotiations to return to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

Sources close to production tell us Kim and NeNe both have offers on the table from Bravo for Season 10 this Fall, and we're told the network wants them as full-fledged cast members.

We're told both women are receptive, but there's a problem. Kim's got her own show on Bravo that just started filming ... and NeNe's shooting her own stuff.

We're told Bravo's willing to bend if necessary and hire them as part-time cast members, although that's not ideal. 

We know both want a lot of money, and we don't know if the 2 sides are far apart.

Kim hasn't been a regular on 'Housewives' since season 5, and NeNe bailed after season 8. Members of the existing cast are not all down with the move, but they have no choice.

Welcome back, girls ... maybe.

Golden Tate TOOK OVER Cabo San Lucas for his wedding this weekend -- renting out an entire hotel on the beach ... and swapping crazy diamond rings with his beautiful bride. 

The Detroit Lions star traded "I Dos" with longtime girlfriend Elise Pollard in front of 250 guests who all made the trip south of the border. 

They had a yacht party, hit golf balls into the ocean and blew it out with a music video style pool party. The Tates did it big!!! 

And the jewelry wasn't bad either ... Golden put a 5 carat wedding band on Elise's finger to compliment the 6 carat cushion cut diamond engagement ring ... so says Chase Gregory Jewelers. 

Golden's ring is dope too ... 140 black diamonds that were each set by hand -- along with 7 larger white diamonds. 

They also traded wedding gifts ... she got a diamond tennis bracelet. He got a newly released exclusive 18k Rolex day-date President with a classic champagne color dial.

Golden says it was the best week of his life. Yeah, we get it.

Donald Trump Reveals Tax Records ... Paid $38 Mil in 2005

3/14/2017 5:54 PM PDT
Breaking News

0314_DONALD-TRUMP-TMZDonald Trump is finally coughing up his tax returns, at least in part ... and says he paid $38 million in 2005.

The president released the financial info under pressure from MSNBC's Rachel Maddow ... who promised to broadcast the 2005 data on her show Tuesday evening. Half an hour before she went on air the White House revealed Trump paid the $38 mil on $150 million income.

Trump's release comes grudgingly. The White House added, "Despite this substantial income figure and tax paid, it is totally illegal to steal and publish tax returns."

There was also a direct shot at Maddow -- "You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago."

Fact is, Maddow's ratings have been pretty damn good since Trump's election.

update_graphic_red_bar

6:25 PM -- Maddow revealed Trump's 1040 Form, and says it was anonymously mailed to investigative journalist David Cay Johnston. She hasn't revealed anything more than what the White House statement did.
