Mischa Barton I Chose Play Over Work And It Cost Me $200k

8/22/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-mischa-barton-TMZ-01Mischa Barton's gotta fork over a ton of cash to the screenwriter she left high and dry by blowing off his movie production to go parading all over Europe.

In legal docs obtained by TMZ ... a judge ordered Mischa to pay $200k, plus interest, to screenplay writer Daniel Lief for skipping town just as shooting was set to start for his movie, "Promoted." Mischa had scored the lead role. 

As we reported ... producers sued Mischa when they saw pics of her all over social media ... hangin' in Europe with a dude, instead of getting her ass to work. Daniel said the production delay -- he had to recast the lead -- cost more than $300k. 

We reached out to Mischa, but no word back yet.

8/22/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-birdman-cash-money-tmzBirdman just got hit hard for stealing loot from some veteran songwriters ... hit hard as in millions of dollars. 

Lil Wayne and Cash Money sampled some obscure tracks for the songs, "You" and "Certified." Seems Cash Money shorted the songwriters -- ironically exactly what Wayne claims Birdman did to him in a separate, multi-million dollar lawsuit. 

Birdman and Cash Money now have to pay the piper ... to the tune of $3.3 mil.  

Mind you, Wayne wants $51 million in his lawsuit against Birdman. But the mogul isn't worried ... we're told he's about to sign a big deal with Apple, so he'll have money to blow.

Lindsay Lohan I'll Appear on Russian TV But Give Me Money, and Putin

8/21/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-lindsey-lohan-tmz-gettyLindsay Lohan is trying to be a tougher negotiator against Russia than either Clinton or Trump could ever be ... because she's demanding a queen's ransom for an interview on Ruski TV.

We've learned Lindsay was offered to appear on the most popular talk show in Russia -- "Pust govoryat." The show airs on Channel 1, a state-owned station.

The host wants to interview her about her relationship and breakup with ex-fiance Egor Tarabasov. Our Russian spies got us a copy of Channel 1's letter to Lindsay, in which they say, "Please send the list of demands."

Lindsay sent her demands alright ...

-- a private jet

-- security

-- 1 year Russian visa with extension

-- 500,000 British pounds

-- hair, makeup and manicurist onboard jet

-- Ritz-Carlton penthouse suite

Oh, and one other thing. She wants to meet with President Vladimir Putin and get photos with him.

We're told Lindsay is negotiating and some of the demands have been met.

Master P Kids Make the Case ... Dad Should Pay Less Child Support

8/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-master-p-tmz-01Master P's got his kids doing the dirty work for him in his divorce case -- penning emotional letters to convince a judge to reduce his monthly support payments to his ex, Sonya Miller.

In new docs, Master P says his 3 minor kids stay with him full time because their mother's drug addiction makes it impossible for her to care for them. That's why he wants to slash the $10,473 in child support and $16,574 in spousal support that he's currently paying.

The kids -- Hercy, Mercy and Itali -- all wrote letters, submitted to the court, testifying they're better off for living with their dad.

17-year-old daughter Itali made the most compelling case ... writing, "Although I love being with my mom I was unable to keep my grades up. Unfortunately, my mom was dealing with addiction issues that affected my older sister, who hasn't even had the opportunity to graduate high school" ... even though she's 19.

Itali says she's trying to avoid the same fate.

Master P also says he's not the baller he used to be -- claiming he's making $2,441 per month and only has $432 in the bank.

Fetty Wap I Treated a Kid Like Dirt For His Birthday!!!

8/21/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819_Ftty_wapp_bike_instagram_MAINFetty Wap just made it impossible for the parents of a 19-year-old not to disappoint their kid ... because Fetty shelled out $8k for an amazing birthday present.

The "Trap Queen" rapper ran into Taekwon "Pug" Ford a few months back when he came to Baltimore to ride dirt bikes with Pug's crew. 

Apparently, Fetty knew Pug has an obsession with bikes -- he starred in "12 O'Clock Boys," a documentary about dirt bike riders in Baltimore.

So imagine Pug's surprise when Fetty presented the 19-year-old with a 2016 Yamaha YZ125. 

Fetty is no stranger to bikes ... and bike mishaps. He shattered his leg in a motorcycle accident last year. He's transitioned from 2 wheels to 4 -- smart.

Mel Gibson I'm Paying Oksana More ... to Get Outta Dodge

8/20/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-mel-gibson-Oksana-TMZ-02Mel Gibson just agreed to pay baby mama Oksana Grigorieva 50% more than she was getting last month, but the trade-off is that she has to skedaddle from his home.

We've learned Mel and Oksana have been squabbling over child support for 6-year-old Lucia. Oksana was pulling in $20k a month but wanted a small increase -- to $100k a month!

We're told they went back and forth and struck a deal. Mel is now paying Oksana a skosh under $30k a month. But in return Oksana agreed to vacate Mel's $2.4 million rental home in Sherman Oaks. We're told she's rented a pad in Malibu.

It's pretty amazing. TMZ broke the story, Mel was willing to pay Oksana $15 MILLION to settle their child support and alleged domestic violence cases -- provided she keeps those incendiary, racist tapes secret. After signing the agreement, Oksana disavowed it and went for more.

She ended up with a $250,00 settlement.

And file this under glass half full ... Oksana had 50 lawyers in her epic battle with Mel, so her latest -- Brian Kramer -- settled and got her a 50% increase, which is better than the scores of lawyers did before him.

Justin Bieber It's Tough Losing A Pal, So The Tab's On Me

8/20/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-justin-bieber-getty-tmz-01Justin Bieber shelled out a few hundred bucks to cover the bar bill of a grieving group of strangers.

The Biebs was a few drinks in at Residuals Tavern in Studio City Tuesday when he noticed customers at a nearby table crying. Justin asked the bartender what was up, and he heard the saddest story.

One of the regulars at the bar -- a guy named JD who was in his late 20s -- had tragically died earlier that day when he fell from his fire escape.

Bieber was moved so he paid their tab, which came to a few hundred bucks.

And, no, it didn't end up on Instagram.

EXCLUSIVE

0819-caitlyn-jenner-charity-buzz-golf-GETTY-01Caitlyn Jenner's offering anyone -- man or woman -- a chance to play golf with her, but your money's gotta be right.

Caitlyn's putting her golf skills up for bid through the celebrity auction site Charitybuzz. The highest bidder will get a private round of golf with her in L.A. -- a great opportunity if golf's your thing.

Remember, Caitlyn's a longtime member at the exclusive Sherwood Country Club, and even golfs with pros from time to time. Plus, Bruce frequently donated time for charity auctions, which always went for top dollar.

Charitybuzz predicts the winning bidder this time will have to drop around $10k. We're told Caitlyn will also cover the winner's food and drink tab for the day, and she's tossing in an autographed copy of her recent SI cover.

Ante up, the auction goes live Saturday.

EXCLUSIVE

0819_floyd_mayweather_example_KODE57_launchFloyd Mayweather is about to add another insanely expensive whip to his collection -- 'cause the boxer just ordered a $2.5 MILLION supercar ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

It's called the KODE57 enji ... and high-end car enthusiasts have been geeked up about its debut for a long time. 

We're told the very first one was put out on display to the public moments ago at an exclusive car show in Pebble Beach ... and Floyd has already placed his order. 

We spoke with Floyd's car guy, Obi Okeke from DoctorBugatti.com and Liquidtorque.com, who confirmed the order. 

"This is a car Floyd has been highly interested in and psyched about getting."

"I have been working on this project for 6 years and Floyd has been my main target in getting this car ... so he is pretty excited in finally seeing it and getting it."

Obi says only FIVE of the cars will be made -- "I am the only representative in North and South America to sell this car."

Congrats.

8/19/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill knows a good BOGO when he sees one ... because he scored a sweet bonus just for dropping a few hundred thousand for a new luxurious and rare SUV.

Sources close to Meek tell us the rapper paid $380,000 to get a Bentley Bentayga as soon as it rolled out of the factory. They've only made 75 of 'em and we're told Meek got the only one in Bev Hills. Why? It does 175 mph, and Bentley says it's the fastest SUV in the world.

The base model goes for $300k, but of course Meek had to have the Mulliner Edition. That's rich people talk for fully loaded. Check out the video ... it's pretty baller, and even has refrigerated consoles.

We're told Bentley threw in a "free" Breitling Bentley edition watch and some limited edition Bentley luggage. What a bargain!

Finally, something new for Meek ... without Nicki's name on it.

U.S. Swimmer Jimmy Feigen Strikes $11,000 Deal ... To Keep His Ass Outta Brazilian Jail

8/19/2016 6:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0819-jimmy-feigen-GETTY-01How much does it cost to make an international bathroom scandal go away in Rio?? Just short of $11,000 ... at least for Team USA swimmer Jimmy Feigen.

The swimmer's lawyer just announced that JF struck a deal with Brazilian officials ... in which he agreed to pony up a check for $10,800 to a Brazilian charity called the Reaction Institute. 

In exchange, prosecutors say they will not charge Feigen with filing a false police report for lying about being robbed at gunpoint during a gas station bathroom incident early Sunday morning.  

FYI, the Reaction Institute is a community outreach program that helps Brazil's youth with judo training. Ronda Rousey has worked with the charity in the past. 

Rio ... best justice money can buy.

Amber Heard My $7 Mil Settlement Is Fighting Violence Against Women

8/18/2016 3:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0818_amber_heard_tmzAmber Heard is giving ALL of her Johnny Depp divorce settlement money to 2 charities.

Amber confirmed what TMZ first reported ... the settlement amount is $7 million, and she tells us, "The donation will be divided equally between the ACLU, with a particular focus to stop violence against women, and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, where I have worked as a volunteer for the past 10 years."

Amber's also reiterating what she and Johnny said in their joint statement -- that the divorce wasn't about financial gain. She says, "Money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves." 

Amber says she forfeited all residuals Johnny earned from movie deals he made during their 15-month marriage ... which she'd be entitled to because there was no prenup. 

A rep for Children's Hospital thanked Heard and said, "her generosity will support the lifesaving treatments and cures that CHLA provides for critically ill children each year." 

Amber added, "Hopefully this experience results in a positive change in the lives of people who need it the most."
