Adele Rolling in the Deep Discounts

1/13/2017 6:58 AM PST

0113-adele-ralphs-FAMEFLYNET-01Adele's bank account screams caviar and champagne, but she keeps proving she's strictly a peanut butter and jelly kinda chick.

Despite selling more than a 100 million records, at only 28, she loaded up on groceries Thursday at a Ralphs. She could easily cruise the aisles of a highfalutin Whole Foods or Bristol Farms -- and have someone do it for her -- but Adele keeps it real.

Next stop -- maybe a sale at Target?

Soulja Boy Landlord Says ... Pay Up or Get Out, You Deadbeat!!!

1/13/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0111_soulja-boy_tmzupdate_graphic_red_barJan. 16, 2017 -- Reps for Soulja Boy tell us Soulja's business partner is the person who leased the house, NOT Soulja, and the rapper has no obligation to pay the landlord a cent.

update_grey_gray_barSoulja Boy's not only in the market for some serious boxing lessons, he could soon be looking for a new place to live ... because he's WAY behind on rent.

Soulja leased a pad in the Hollywood Hills 3 months ago for $6k a month. His landlord tells us he's already $6k behind and counting. The landlord says when he demands rent he gets blown off.

Since he moved in, the house has been a target for trouble. Cops arrested him there last month after he violated his probation ... and earlier this week the place was burglarized.

The landlord tells us he's had it with Soulja, and if he doesn't pay up by week's end, the legal guns come out.

Rihanna Lock'd Up Hair Don't Care

1/12/2017 3:07 PM PST

0112-rihanna-dreads-akmDon't let Rihanna's casual getup fool you -- chick's rocking $5k worth of gear to go with those super thick locks.

RiRi was leaving her NYC apartment to head to the set of "Ocean's Eight." She's co-starring with Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and Sandra Bullock -- none of whom will be wearing anything this dope. Her Vetements hoodie, Gucci socks and Louis Vuitton backpack don't come cheap. We're guessing the hairstyle's for her character.

We know what you're thinking -- that's a lot o' leg for a winter day, but temps hit the 60s there Thursday.

Behold ... global warming's silver lining.

Robin Thicke, Paula Patton Custody War with Allegations of Physical Abuse Hard Feelings Over Alan's Funeral

1/12/2017 2:43 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0112-paula-patton-robin-thicke-tmz-02Robin Thicke and ex-wife Paula Patton have been embroiled in a nasty custody fight over their 6-year-old son. It's escalated to a Child Services case over alleged physical abuse, and Robin just scored a legal victory.

Sources familiar with the case tell TMZ ... Julian told school officials at the beginning of  the year his dad had spanked him ... more than once. The school reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services on January 3rd, and the Dept. opened an investigation.

Paula then began denying Robin access to their son, and filed an emergency order asking the family law judge to restrict Robin's contact with Julian to monitored daytime visits only.

According to legal docs Paula told Robin, "Julian is scared of you."

Paula says in her declaration, the day before Julian told the school, he told her that Robin spanked him "really hard."  He demonstrated and hit Paula on the back so hard she said, "ow." Julian then said it was actually worse than that.  

A school official also submitted a declaration saying Julian told her Robin frequently "punches" him very hard. 

Robin says in legal docs, "On a very rare occasion and only as a last resort, I will use light spanking, but it is consistent with the law -- open hand on the butt. This is the type of discipline to which Paula and I agreed during our marriage." 

There's also a declaration from a nanny who claims she has seen Robin smoke marijuana on several occasions in front of Julian. And there's this: Paula says at Julian's kindergarten graduation last June, Robin showed up drunk at 8:30 AM and was "hooting and hollering and making inappropriate jokes" in the Catholic church.

Robin claims this is all about his decision to block Paula from attending his dad Alan's funeral last month. He says in docs, "Paula did not have a positive relationship with my father and often made negative comments to me about my father. As such, she was not welcome at his funeral."

Sources connected to the case tell us there was a hearing Thursday morning and the judge denied Paula's request to limit Robin's joint custody and also a request for drug testing.

As for DCFS, we're told social workers have interviewed Julian twice and also interviewed Paula. Robin is being interviewed Thursday afternoon.

The DCFS case is ongoing.

EXCLUSIVE

0112-young-thug-tmz-3Young Thug is a wanted man after he failed to show up in court -- for the second time -- to face a simple fix-it ticket for tinted windows.

YT was supposed to be in an Atlanta court Thursday, but was a no-show ... so the judge issued a warrant for his arrest.

If you recall, Thug was picked up by the cops shortly before Christmas while shopping at an ATL mall. A cop spotted the rapper and remembered he had missed court. So much for learning his lesson.

He might want to avoid malls.

Soulja Boy Home Burglarized During War with Chris Brown

1/12/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0111_soulja_boy_cops_tmz_wmSoulja Boy's house was burglarized Tuesday ... in the throes of his war with Chris Brown that now has tinges of a gang feud.

Law enforcement sources tell us a man busted into Soulja's Hollywood Hills home early Tuesday morning. After busting the front door down the crook nabbed $10k in cash and $12k in jewelry.

We're told SB wasn't home at the time of the burglary ... but his house is wired with surveillance cameras, one of which captured the suspect's image.

TMZ broke the story ... Soulja and Chris Brown are taking their feud into a boxing ring -- probably in Dubai. Wack 100, who's siding squarely with Soulja, says very clearly the fight is being controlled by West Coast gangs. Chris' team, which includes Mike Tyson, begs to differ.

Cops are investigating the incident ... they were at the house again Wednesday afternoon. We're told so far there's no evidence Chris or his crew were involved.
