Frances Bean Cobain Forced to Pay Ex While Working On Divorce

9/28/2016 4:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928_Frances-Bean-Cobain_Isaiah-Silva_gettyFrances Bean Cobain is going to fork over nearly $50k in emergency relief to her estranged husband until the dust settles in their divorce ... TMZ has learned. 

A judge signed off on an agreement for Frances to pay Isaiah Silva $12,000 a month for the next 4 months. The dough is temporary spousal support to carry him over until they wrap up the divorce battle. According to the docs, Frances and Isaiah are going to mediation during the 4 month period.

Frances will also have to pay $15k toward his attorney fees. For Isaiah's part, he was ordered out of their house 10 days ago. 

The exes were married less than 2 years. As we previously reported ... he's aiming for $25k per month when it's all said and done. Mediation should be interesting. 

French Montana Cops Profiled Me That's Why I Called 'em Out

9/28/2016 3:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928-french-montana-tmzFrench Montana's adamant his "Black lives matter" shout-out wasn't a wisecrack at cops -- instead he was reacting to what he saw as harassment of his crew ... for no good reason.

The rapper tells TMZ, NYPD pulled over his SUV just one block from Aces strip club where they were partying. He says the officers told them they were checking to see if the driver had been drinking.

French says his guy was sober and when all his paperwork checked out, they peace'd out.

But he thinks cops were hoping to find something more incriminating. French believes he and his friends were targeted as they left Aces because they're black and famous. He says he only yelled "Black lives matter" to remind the cops it's "pathetic" to stop him for nothing. 

We reached out to NYPD for comment, so far no word back.

Fetty Wap Sued Hello! He Ripped Off 'Trap Queen'

9/28/2016 11:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0928_fetty-wap_tmzFetty Wap and his producer on "Trap Queen" are being sued by a Danish songwriter who claims they jacked his beat without permission for Wap's monster hit.

In his lawsuit, Lazar Lakic says he purchased exclusive rights in 2014 to a beat called, "Hello" ... from producer Tony Fadd. Lakic says that's why he was shocked to hear it sampled in "Trap Queen."

Lakic says Fadd contacted him in January 2015 in an attempt to buy back the rights to "Hello," but Lakic declined. "Trap Queen" ended up going 4x platinum in the US, and Lakic says he never got a cut.

Fetty's attorney, Navarro Gray, tells TMZ ... Fetty legally bought the beat from Fadd and has the contract to prove it. So if Lakic is awarded damages, Fetty says he'll go after Fadd to cover it.

Lakic is suing for profits from the banger. He also wants to destroy all copies and stop all sales of "Trap Queen" ... which would damn near impossible at this point.

Ice Cube Forget Clinton & Trump ... We Need Obama Back

9/28/2016 9:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ice Cube has a very bold take on the election ... saying we're screwed either way, and the only way to fix it is to get Obama back in the White House for 4 more years.

Cube appears on Too $hort's BoomBox podcast with Bobby Loco Wednesday and the upcoming election is a major talking point. It's interesting -- Cube urges the public they've got to work hard no matter who gets elected prez -- but he says the best solution for everybody is to just get Obama back in office.

Ice Cube's the inaugural guest on Short's podcast ... but the veteran rapper has a whole season of celeb guests lined up, and a new episode will drop every Wednesday.

French Montana Taunts NYPD During Stop ... 'Black Lives Matter!'

9/28/2016 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

French Montana got pulled over outside a strip club, and seemed to have Desiigner's recent arrest in mind ... as he joked about his fellow passengers holding anything illegal.

French and a bunch of friends were being driven in an SUV leaving Aces in Queens early Wednesday ... when they got stopped. While recording video, he threw a few verbal jabs at the officers. 

He referred to them as "hip-hop cops" (the alleged NYPD unit dedicated to tracking rappers) ... and repeatedly yelled, "Black lives matter." It's unclear why French and co. got pulled over, or if anyone was ticketed.

Watch the video though ... French wanted to make sure no one else in the ride had "some s*** I need to know about."

You'll recall, Desiigner was initially arrested for gun and drug possession. The drugs turned out to be steroids, which did not belong to Desiigner or his crew, and most of the charges against him have been dropped.

9/28/2016 7:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Usain Bolt got the VIP treatment at the Drake concert in L.A. Tuesday night -- hanging out backstage with the rapper ... who did his best Jamaican accent with the Olympian.

One more thing ... Drake was rocking a Derek Fisher jersey onstage. 

Wonder how Matt Barnes is gonna feel about that ...

Taylor Swift No Boys Allowed

9/28/2016 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0928-taylor-swift-lorde-getty-01Taylor Swift seems to be taking a break from men, and opting for ladies nights out instead.

Paps got Taylor out in NYC Tuesday leaving The Waverly Inn with model-actresses Cara Delevingne and Suki Waterhouse -- and singer Lorde following close behind. 

The single life suits Taylor -- way less drama. Less inspiration for songs too, but it's a trade-off. 

Tokio Hotel Guitarist Run, Run, Run from My Wife ... Files for Scheidung

9/28/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0927_tom_kaulitz_Ria-Sommerfield_getty_twitterTokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz doesn't want to love the woman who loves him back anymore -- he's calling it quits with his wife ... TMZ has learned.

Tom, the twin brother of lead singer Bill, just filed divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- to part ways with Ria Sommerfeld, with whom he tied the knot a little more than a year ago.

Tom's citing irreconcilable differences, and wants the judge to shut down any request by Ria for spousal support ... we're guessing he's the breadwinner.

Tom and the rest of the Tokio Hotel crew have been making hits in both German and English for years, and it looks like he might have made most of his cash well before getting with Ria last year ... when he toured a bit but didn't put out any new music.

Their letzte tag together before separating was New Year's Eve.

Mary J. Blige My Prenup's WAy More Solid Than My Marriage

9/27/2016 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0927-mary-j-blige-kendu-isaacs-tmzMary J. Blige wants to make it absolutely clear that her prenup is solid as a rock ... but her estranged husband begs to differ.

The singer's lawyer, Gary Fishbein, filed docs asking the judge to give her prenup the stamp of approval. She's worried because the lawyer for Martin "Kendu" Isaacs has made sounds it's not worth the paper it's written on, calling it "immensely invalid, unenforceable and unconscionable."

Mary says they drew up the prenup on December 5th, 2003 and got married 2 days later. She filed for divorce back in July and asked the judge to block Isaacs' bid for spousal support.

It's pretty simple -- she says the prenup clearly lays out who gets what. If it's thrown out ... it'll be an ugly mess.

Stay tuned.

Justin was doing his hit, "What Do You Mean?" ... when the countdown started on his snot rocket launch. Y'know how it is when you just can't hold back. Check out the video, which shows a juicy projectile going straight from JB's schnoz to the not-at-all cheap seats.

Jerry Jones Jay Z's the Real Deal 'I See What Beyonce Sees In Him'

9/27/2016 1:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sounds like Jerry Jones has a man crush on Jay Z -- praising the guy as one of the coolest people he's ever met ... and saying, "I see what [Beyonce] sees in him."

Jones called into 105.3 The Fan Tuesday morning when the conversation turned to the VIPs at the Cowboys vs. Bears game this past weekend ... VIPs who included 50 Cent, Jay, Bey and Blue Ivy. 

Jerry makes it clear he loves Beyonce -- and has for years -- but when it comes to Jay, the Cowboys owner started gushing over the Roc Nation boss. 

And that's when Jerry started busting out the lyrics to "N****s In Paris!!!!!!"

Kidding. But that woulda been awesome.

Lil Wayne Young Money Loses! David Banner's Getting Paid

9/27/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921-lil-wayne-david-banner-tmz-01Lil Wayne's record label is getting called out for stiffing rapper David Banner, and now has to hand him more than $160k.

Banner won a default judgment in his lawsuit against Young Money Records -- he said the label owed him upwards of $150k for work he did on "Tha Carter III" and "We Are Young Money" ... specifically for three songs he produced.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Young Money failed to respond in the case ... so the judge entered the default of $164,303.19, which includes interest.

We're guessing Wayne already has an idea about how to pay off that tab.

Beanie Sigel Knocked Out Backstage ... Meek's Homie Takes Credit

9/26/2016 2:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill and The Game's beef claimed a new victim -- hip-hop legend Beanie Sigel, who got knocked the hell out ... apparently by a guy in Meek's crew.

TMZ got this video of Beanie laid out backstage ... shortly before he was getting onstage Saturday night for Diddy's Bad Boy Family concert in Philly. You can also see a guy getting dragged out of the area ... his name is Teefy Bey, and he's a member of Meek's Dreamchasers.

Teefy's copped to throwing the KO punch, and claims Beanie had to go down because he broke the "code of ethics on the street." He doesn't get more specific.

***WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE***

It's weird because Beanie rapped WITH Meek last week on his Game diss track, "Ooouuu." Of course, he's since claimed to have written the whole thing, including Meek's verses.

In any event, Beanie still managed to perform in Philly after the knockout, and took a thinly veiled shot at Meek and co.
