Britni's all smiles in her mug shot, though ... and was released after posting a $1,100 bond.

'Teen Mom 2' Star Jenelle Evans Ex-Hubby Arrested on Drug Charges

4/11/2018 10:02 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The ex-husband of "Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans has been arrested on new drug charges in North Carolina ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Courtland Keith Rogers was hauled off to jail Tuesday after being indicted last month. He's facing two drug-related charges -- selling and delivering schedule III substances, and possession with intent to sell and distribute schedule III substances. 

We're told the 2 drug charges stem from a drug possession-related arrest back in November when he was caught with Buprenorphine-Naloxone, which is normally used to treat opioid addiction. Rogers was also hit with an habitual felon charge because he'd been arrested and convicted for his third felony in the state in 2013.

Rogers was released from Brunswick County Jail on a $15,000 bond. He has no kids with Jenelle, and was only married to her for less than 2 years.

Cardi B The B's for Beloved ... By Insane Mob of Fans!!!

4/10/2018 4:48 PM PDT

If Cardi B was worried about haters popping off about her pregnancy, she isn't anymore ... because she got tons of love -- like an NYC street-full of it -- at MTV. 

It's a gross understatement to say Cardi got swarmed Tuesday evening as she left the taping of her TRL special. The crowd mobbed her from the second she stepped onto the sidewalk, and continued surrounding her SUV as she attempted to drive away.

She even signed some autographs -- from the safety of her ride -- before making a getaway.

As you know, Cardi finally announced over the weekend she and Offset are expecting ... even though we'd caught wind of it weeks ago. 

This crazy scene makes it clear her fans are on board for a baby on board.

Exclusive Details

Ex-MTV "Road Rules" star Brian Lancaster has died at just 43 years old ... TMZ has learned.

Brian appeared on season 7 of "Road Rules" back in 1999. His family tells us he was found dead in his Pennsylvania home last Thursday. They believe it was heart failure, and tell us he had a history of arrhythmia.

The family says the death was not drug or alcohol related -- and, as far as they know, no substances were found in the home. 

Brian was 23 years old when he competed on "Road Rules." He didn't win the grand prize of $43k, but he competed on 13 different "missions" over the course of 15 episodes while shooting in Mexico, Costa Rica and the United States.

Brian's family described him as an outdoorsman and daredevil. He also had his Master's degree in elementary education. He's survived by his fiancee, Sarah, and his parents, Dennis and Carol Lancaster. 

Farrah Abraham MTV Settlement Works for Me!

4/5/2018 8:37 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham is quite pleased with the way her "sex shaming" lawsuit against MTV's parent company ended ... but sounds uncertain about working with them in the future.

We got the former 'Teen Mom' star Wednesday at E. Baldi in Bev Hills, and she gushed about how happy she is with the settlement she reached with Viacom. You'll recall, she sued claiming a 'Teen Mom' exec fired her, and 86'd any potential long-term deals with MTV ... due to her porn career. She also said he got hostile in their meeting.

She eventually dropped the suit, and the fact she's "really happy" about the settlement could be a sign she got some money out of it -- but she refused to give up details. 

Farrah did talk about the type of companies she wants to work with in the future. Hard to tell if MTV fits the bill ... in Farrah's eyes, anyway.

Breaking News

"Teen Mom" star Ryan Edwards really killed the mood -- one day after he and his wife announced they're expecting their first child, he went and got his ass arrested.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the 30-year-old was busted Tuesday at his house in Tennessee when cops executed a warrant for violating probation. We're told he posted bail Wednesday morning. He's already on probation for a previous heroin case.

Ryan reportedly had a $10k-a-week heroin addiction before going to rehab -- and MTV cameras captured him slurring his speech and falling asleep at the wheel on his way to his wedding last year.

The arrest comes on the heels of his 21-year-old wife, Mackenzie Standifer, revealing she's pregnant. It will be his second kid -- he and fellow "Teen Mom" star Maci Bookout have a 9-year-old son.

Farrah Abraham Settles 'Sex Shaming' Lawsuit

Breaking News

Farrah Abraham's calling off the dogs in her $5 million lawsuit over a tongue lashing she says she got on "Teen Mom OG."

Farrah and Viacom, MTV's parent company, reached a settlement ... according to docs she filed Tuesday, requesting the lawsuit be dropped. She had sued because she claimed executive producer Morgan J. Freeman harassed and humiliated her over her porn career. She claimed he was so hostile during a meeting that she "feared for her life."

Farrah had high hopes for the case, telling us it would make the world a better place for women.

We don't know what the terms of the settlement are, but Farrah's gotta be happy with it because according to the docs ... the suit can't be refiled.

Jenelle Evans Husband Ducks LGBT Apology ... Gays Aren't in MY Life!!!

3/15/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans' husband is pleading ignorance, saying he doesn't even know what LGBT means ... so how could he possibly say he's sorry to the community?

We got David Eason and Jenelle Wednesday at LAX, and he said he doesn't "owe" anyone an apology. As we reported, his anti-LGBT comments on social media last month led to MTV firing him. 

It's interesting ... instead of using the ole "I have gay friends" excuse, David's saying the exact opposite -- that he doesn't know ANY gays and therefore, doesn't focus on their issues. For what it's worth, he attempted, sorta, to say sorry to "gay people or whatever."

As for MTV firing him -- David ain't buying it. He claims he wasn't canned, despite MTV saying he was, and he has a few words for the network's social media team.

'TRL' MTV Overhauls Music Vid Show Again

3/14/2018 1:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

3:30 PM PT -- MTV says the email we obtained doesn't tell the full story, which is that 'TRL' will be moving time slots, but it's also expanding.

A spokesperson says the show will be back in new "daily late night and morning shows this summer." The rep adds the show's been a huge success since its return.

MTV is pulling the plug on its revived version of "Total Request Live" ... TMZ has learned.

We obtained an email sent to employees informing them the series is being canceled once again. As you might know, TRL was brought back to the network in October, after being off the air for nearly 9 years.

According to the message ... TRL will not be returning April 9 as it was scheduled to after going on hiatus in February. Instead, the afternoon show will "pivot to short form content that will be featured on social and digital platforms."

Translation: MTV thought they'd greenlit 'Godfather: Part II," but it was more like 'Part III.'

Employees were told 'Total Request' late after shows will continue, along with a "Jersey Shore" after show on April 19 ... but 'TRL' as you know it, is officially done.

'Teen Mom 3' Star Mackenzie McKee Joins 'Teen Mom OG' ... Replacing Farrah

2/27/2018 1:47 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The "Teen Mom OG" hole created by Farrah Abraham's firing is being filled by another 'TM' alum, Mackenzie McKee ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the production tell us the "Teen Mom 3" star, and fan fave, has officially joined the 'OG' cast, and she's already shooting scenes. As we told you, Farrah was 86'd and claimed, on her way out the door, MTV execs shamed her for doing porn. 

We're told 'TM' producers recently pitched Mackenzie the idea of joining 'OG.' They were already shooting a 2-hour special with her about her mom's cancer battle. She was diagnosed earlier this year with stage 4 brain cancer.

We're told Mackenzie agreed to step in for Farrah and she's been filming for more than a week now.

You'll recall ... Mackenzie was part of the 'TM3' franchise before getting canceled after one season in 2013. She was very popular then, and fans have wanted to see her come back.

While Farrah's off fighting Viacom and MTV in court ... it looks like 'Teen Mom'-sters are getting exactly what they wanted.

We've reached out to MTV, but no word back yet.

'Teen Mom 2' Star Adam Lind Wanted by Cops For Being a Deadbeat Dad

2/24/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Teen Mom 2" star Adam Lind's still got some growing up to do ... because he's a wanted man for all the wrong reasons. 

The Minnehaha County Sheriff's Department in South Dakota tells TMZ ... there's an active warrant for Adam's arrest for allegedly failing to pay child support. The warrant was issued on Valentine's Day.

We checked with the state office that handles these matters and we're told Adam was in the hole after 2 separate judgments were handed down last September -- one for $12,365 and another for $8,757.

It's unclear which kids this is about. Adam has 2 kids (Aubree, 8, and Paislee, 4) with 2 baby mamas ... including "Teen Mom 2" star Chelsea Houska, who is now married to Cole DeBoer. 

Farrah Abraham My Lawsuit vs. Viacom Will Make The World Better

2/23/2018 7:57 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham's under the impression she's making some kind of humanitarian effort with her lawsuit against MTV's parent company, Viacom ... or so it seems.

We got Farrah leaving Craig's in WeHo Thursday night and talked to her about MTV kicking her to the curb shortly after she met with one of its honchos ... whom she says was hostile and threatening.

She says every celebrity has a sex tape, so getting the boot for hers is grossly unfair. She adds Viacom should be worried ... very worried.

Farrah also has strong feelings about Kim K posting topless pics. Farrah says she has her own mother/daughter pics.

2/22/2018 9:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham says she's been bullied and ganged up on by MTV ... and the main reason she's suing is because she doesn't want her daughter to ever be treated that way.

Farrah was in L.A. Wednesday with her daughter, Sophia -- and a couple cute pups -- and she got into the lawsuit she filed against Viacom, MTV's parent company. She says it's no shocker she's going after them, after she was booted from 'Teen Mom.'

She insists she's on to better things now, but had to take a stand with MTV to set an example for her little girl. Sophia even voiced some support for her mom.

Farrah's suing for at least $5 million.
