Bella Thorne's BF Defends Mudslide Tweet ... Back Off, Rob Lowe!

1/12/2018 7:29 AM PST

Bella Thorne's bf is leaping to defend what might seem indefensible, and demanding Rob Lowe back off his girl ... despite her totally tone deaf comment about the deadly Montecito mudslides.

Bella's dating rapper Mod Sun, the guy she was trying to get to when she ignorantly tweeted about being inconvenienced by the mudslides blocking the 101 freeway. Rob subsequently called her out because she clearly knew nothing about the 17 people who'd been killed in the disaster.

Mod thinks Rob is guilty of shaming Bella, and went after the actor.

BTW ... looks like Bella eventually got to Mod's show. Whew!

We got Mike out at LAX Thursday and asked him about the wave of support -- and some backlash, too -- for Oprah to run against Donald Trump in the next election cycle. But as you can see from this video, KM wasn't having it.

Killer Mike knows EXACTLY who he wants to run for President -- a former Ohio State Senator who was a surrogate for Bernie Sanders. Google her -- Nina Turner.

EXCLUSIVE

Ray J's slamming the breaks on some dude suing him for stealing the idea behind Scoot-E-Bike ... calling the suit a pure money grab.

Ray J's manager, David Weintraub, tells TMZ ... Scoot-E-Bike is 100% independently owned, financed, trademarked, marketed and promoted by the 'Love & Hip Hop' star. Weintraub's adamant ZERO contracts or agreements were ever made with the guy.

Weintraub says Jean Paul's bitter Ray J's company is a soaring success and the suit's just a frivolous shakedown.

Timbaland knows value when he sees it ... that's why he dropped FOUR MILLION BUCKS for a condo that's still under construction.

Exclusive Details

Paul Wall can't fathom how United Airlines fired one of his closest friends after 16 years of service ... and in the process put the guy's financial future at risk.

If you haven't heard ... the rapper on Tuesday fired off a couple of tweets claiming United fired a close family friend -- and a combat disabled veteran at that -- for allowing Paul to fly for free using his corporate friends and family privilege. Paul says the friend's been with United for 16 years and was close to retirement.

The rapper tells us he's done it plenty of times, but thinks the airline started digging into his flight history after he dissed them on Twitter. He feels horrible how things went down for his friend.

United tells TMZ, "We restrict this benefit to leisure travel. Mr. Wall used these travel benefits for business purposes, which our policy does not permit." Paul maintains he did nothing wrong.

Don't get it twisted -- the King of the South says he's glad Steph and Diddy have a real shot to buy the squad ... but he clearly ain't interested in teaming up.

Drake Don't Buy the Hype! Not Involved with New Documentary

1/10/2018 11:16 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Drake's Houston team has a warning for fans about a new documentary on his rise to fame -- they have absolutely nothing to do with it, despite how it seems in a clip going viral.

The video was put together by a guy who goes by MarQuis Trill on Instagram, and he claims he's produced a documentary called "Toronto to Houston" -- featuring several Drake performances and interviews. MarQuis claims the film he directed and edited is coming out in the summer, and that Rap-A-Lot Records is down with the production.

We're told that's just not true. 

Our Drake sources say neither Jas Prince nor Drake participated in the documentary. Ditto for James Prince and anyone at Rap-A-Lot. We're told all the interview clips used in the trailer were pulled from previously released productions.

Our sources also say MarQuis' claim on Twitter that he'll be shooting footage inside Drake's new home in Toronto ... is totally bogus. In this case ... you really can't believe the hype.
