NBA YoungBoy Bails Outta Jail In GF Assault Case

3/15/2018 4:08 PM PDT

NBA YoungBoy finally got sprung after spending more than 2 weeks behind bars for allegedly beating his girlfriend ... TMZ has learned.

The 18-year-old Louisiana rapper posted $75,000 bail Thursday around 1 PM to get released from Ware County Jail in Georgia. TMZ broke the story ... YoungBoy was busted in Florida on Feb. 24 on a warrant for kidnapping, and then transferred to GA.

Surveillance video from a Waycross, GA hotel showed YoungBoy slamming his girlfriend, Jania, and dragging her back into their room -- hence, the kidnapping warrant. Jania told police they were only playing around.

Cops didn't buy her version of events, and YoungBoy was eventually booked for felony kidnapping, as well as aggravated assault.

A judge had initially denied him bail, but that changed Monday at a second hearing, where the judge set his bail amount.

Corey Feldman Stiffing an Angel ... According to Complaint

3/15/2018 12:42 PM PDT

2:26 PM -- A rep for Feldman tells TMZ ... Margot was fired due to "highly unprofessional behavior," which included violating her contract. The rep goes on to say Margot made false accusations against Corey, and he looks forward to seeing her in court.Corey Feldman's holding out on one of his Angels, and she's so pissed about it ... she's ratting him out to the state of California.

According to docs, Margot Lane filed with the CA Labor Commissioner's Office ... Corey's company failed to pay her for angel services rendered. Margot says she's owed $1,470 in salary for the period of Aug. 3 to Aug. 12, 2017. Doesn't sound like all that much, however ... there's more.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, the state says Margot's owed an additional $6,860 in penalties for the unpaid wages. Grand total is $8,330.

Margot served as Corey's musical director and also played guitar and piano in his backing band -- the Angels.

We're told she left the group at the end of August. Guessing getting stiffed didn't help the sitch.

Ezekiel Elliott Sneaker Shopping Spree!!! ... Beats Partying, Right??

3/15/2018 11:47 AM PDT

Ezekiel Elliott's been spotted in the wild for the first time this offseason ... but don't worry, Cowboys fans -- he's out coppin' shoes, not booze.

We got Zeke in Beverly Grove right after the superstar RB and his BFF, Alvarez Jackson, went absolutely HAM at high-end sneaker joint SoleStage. 

Elliott wasn't feeling chatty -- but we're guessing he was in a pretty good mood based on his battalion of shopping bags.

FYI, SoleStage's average kicks will run you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars ... so Zeke was raining stacks, no question. 

But, again -- good to see the guy doing chiller activities like this ... especially considering he was PARTYING HIS FACE OFF at this time last year.

Happy almost St. Paddy's Day!!!

Cardi B Baby Due This Summer ... Still Doing Coachella!!!

3/15/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Cardi B's set to pop out her baby this summer but, unlike Beyonce, she's not letting pregnancy stop her from performing at Coachella.

Sources close to Cardi B tell TMZ ... the rapper's due the first week of July and will be close to 7 months pregnant with Offset's kiddo when she takes the stage next month at Coachella.

It's unclear if she'll dress to cover up what will most likely be a noticeable baby bump by the time she takes the stage. Notice, she was more modest last week at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

TMZ broke the story ... Cardi's people told nightclub staffers she's pregnant during Super Bowl weekend. She denied it, and so did her baby daddy ... but we're told the baby train's full steam ahead.

Our sources say Cardi plans to remain in work mode until she pops. For example, we're told she's spent the last 2 weeks buried in the studio to complete her debut album. She also fully intends to go on tour with Bruno Mars in September ... a whopping 2 months after giving birth to her first child.

She's got a lot on the line -- about $100k per night of the tour, and the same goes for her Coachella dates.

That's a lotta diapers.

Stormy Daniels Donations Flying In for Trump Suit But Where's $$$ Going?

3/15/2018 12:50 AM PDT

Stormy Daniels is getting a huge financial assist from the public in her legal battle with Donald Trump, but while the donations pile up ... so do questions about the loot. 

Stormy opened a crowdfunding page Wednesday, asking for donations to support her legal effort to get the "hush" agreement with the Prez tossed. So far she's raised more than $80k in the first 12 hours, and plans to keep collecting for another month. At that pace, she's easily looking at a 7-figure kitty ... possibly more. 

She doesn't list a goal amount, so we called Stormy's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, and asked how much he's billed so far -- to get a sense of what the final bill might be.   He wouldn't say. 

Avenatti did tell TMZ, he's NOT billing her for his media blitz, which include appearances on "Today," "CBS This Morning," multiple CNN and MSNBC shows, ABC ... plus the NY Times, NY Daily News, Washington Post, and NPR. 

Stormy's page says the money's for attorneys' fees and litigation costs, as well as possible "damages that may be awarded against me if I speak out." 

Avenatti did say Stormy will donate the extra cash to charity, but there's no mention of that on the crowdfunding post. We're guessing donors don't know their dough might go to charity, instead of her anti-Trump cause. 

BTW, most people who donate to charity also want a tax deduction, which they won't get here. 

Donald Trump Secret Service Descending On Fundraiser

3/13/2018 3:32 PM PDT

The Secret Service is all over the super exclusive gated community of Beverly Park like white on rice, securing the area for Tuesday night's Donald Trump fundraiser.

Agents were at the front gate, at the home where the event is going down, and police helicopters have been flying over the area to secure it.

TMZ broke the story ... the event is being held at the home of Ed Glazer, the owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Sixty-four guests will sit in rented tents in the backyard after paying a minimum of $35,000 per person. The top price is $250,000.

Glazer is a big Trump supporter, donating a quarter of a million bucks to Trump's Inauguration Committee and anteing up another $50k for Trump's Victory Joint Fundraising Committee. 

Julie Bowen Estranged Husband Says ... I Want Your 'Modern Family' Dough

3/13/2018 11:54 AM PDT

Julie Bowen's estranged husband wants her to pay up in their divorce case.

Scott Phillips filed legal docs and said he wants her to pay spousal support. That could be a hefty payout for Scott if he gets it -- Julie is reportedly making $500k per episode on "Modern Family" for seasons 9 and 10.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Scott said he also wants joint physical and legal custody of their 3 kids. But the biggy here is spousal support.

The "Modern Family" star is raking in tons of dough off the show, and there's also endorsement deals, including from Neutrogena. Forbes estimated she made about $10 million in 2016, alone.

TMZ broke the story ... Julie called it quits with her husband of 13 years when she filed for divorce back in February. As we reported ... their relationship had been on the rocks for some time.

Donald Trump Fundraiser Held at Home of Tampa Bay Bucs Owner

3/13/2018 11:09 AM PDT

Donald Trump will be rubbing elbows with his supporters in one of the ritziest gated communities in Southern California.

TMZ has learned the fundraiser will go down at the home of Ed Glazer, the owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He lives in the super exclusive Beverly Park community in Beverly Hills.

Our sources say it was first billed as a "victory party" but later changed to a fundraiser.

Glazer has commissioned a company to install tents for the occasion -- a 40x50, a 40x40 and a 10x15. There are 64 guests who are invited for the event which will be held sometime between 5 and 10 PM.

The price of admission ... minimum $35,000 per person, with a top price of $250,000.

Glazer donated $250,000 to Trump's Inauguration Committee and also reportedly gave $50,000 to the Trump Victory Joint Fundraising Committee.

Caitlyn Jenner to Kurt Busch: I'll Show You Mine ... If You Show Me Yours!

3/13/2018 6:46 AM PDT


... 'Cause Caitlyn Jenner and NASCAR stud Kurt Busch spent some time checking out each other's hot rides in front of Nobu in Malibu Monday night and we've got the video!!

Caitlyn arrived in her $176k tricked out purple Porsche 911 GT3 RS (NICE!) ... and Kurt showed up in his $500,000 Ford GT supercar (REALLY NICE!). 

Both Caitlyn and Kurt are car fanatics -- and were both impressed with each other's whips. 

We're told Jenner and Busch know each other through mutual friends and Kurt has invited Caitlyn to some of his events. 

The bigger question ... who would win in a race? 

Caitlyn's Porsche can go from 0 to 60 in 3.1 SECONDS!

Kurt's Ford GT? 2.9 SECONDS!!!!!!

Bottom line ... both of these cars will SMOKE whatever you drive. So, don't get any ideas! 

Toto Sued Drums Are Echoing, But Widow Says She's Not Getting Paid

3/12/2018 4:47 PM PDT
Breaking News

The widow of one of Toto's founding members says the band is screwing her out of her fair share of the money it continues to make off classic hits, like "Africa."

Susan Porcaro-Goings says her husband, Jeff Porcaro, left her in charge of his estate when he died in 1992 -- which means she should be getting his share of Toto's royalties. According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Susan says 2 surviving members -- Steve Lukather and David Paich -- are acting in concert to keep her in the dark when it comes to the band's finances.

Susan says she's made several requests for details on the band's revenue, but says she's getting incomplete info from Steve and David.

She points out, for the record, Jeff was part of Toto's foundation -- as co-founder with Paich. She says he came up with the band's name (after watching "Wizard of Oz"), and he also co-wrote "Africa" with Paich.

Susan's suing to force Toto to open up the books and pay her what she's owed ... as sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti.

Lil Pump Signs New $8 Million Record Deal

3/12/2018 4:21 PM PDT

Lil Pump just got a recording contract with Warner Bros. Records and this time it looks like it's going to be binding.

This is the second round of trying to get a valid contract between Warner Bros. Records and Pump.  The first contract was invalid because it was never validated by the court and he's a minor -- 17 years old.

According to the contract, Warner Bros. Records agrees to pay Pump an $8 million advance, and then $9,000 for the first year, $12k for the second and $15k for the 3rd through 7th contract years.

As for royalties, this is where Pump can score, getting 14% in the U.S. There are other royalties that are even higher. There are provisions that give him up to 66% in royalties depending on the format. 

Stormy Daniels Motorboatin' Is Great Again ... Trump Can't Stop This!!!

3/12/2018 1:37 PM PDT

Stormy Daniels isn't about to let President Trump stop her mission to make America horny again ... just ask the guy who was nearly suffocated this weekend by the ex-porn star's boobs. 

We got this video of Stormy's appearance at Solid Gold strip club in Pompano Beach, FL -- where she pulled some classic stripper moves, including letting one customer motorboat her chest. Far as we can tell ... the older gentleman survived the encounter.

Trump's nemesis was completely nude during her appearance, although she made a solid attempt at completely covering her chest with the cash fans threw onstage. 

Stormy's still fighting to get her "hush" agreement with the Prez tossed, so she can open up ... with a "60 Minutes" interview she's already shot with Anderson Cooper. She could also score a book deal. 

For now, she's staying abreast of the strip club biz ... and making a killing.  

Rampage Jackson to Manager: I Almost Got You a Crappy Used Car ... Dropped $130k Instead!

3/12/2018 12:00 PM PDT

MMA star Rampage Jackson says he came thiiiiis close to getting his manager, Tiki, a hoopty Range Rover at the used car lot ... before deciding to be a boss and drop a small fortune!

"I was thinking about going the cheap route ... you almost had a used one!" Rampage said to Tiki. "But then I was like, 'nah man, I can't cheap out.'"

FYI, the new Range was a surprise bday gift  -- after Tiki negotiated an epic new contract with Bellator. 

When we saw Rampage's video of the big reveal, our car guy (yeah, we have one of those) estimated the whip would run him at least $100k in the hole. Turns out, it was almost 130 RACKS!!

With that price tag, ya gotta think Rampage's deal was in the mils -- but Tiki wouldn't spill the beans.

He did walk us through getting the Range, though ... and it's pretty great.
