Liam Payne Close Call at Club ... Shots Fired

1/23/2017 7:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0123-Liam-Payne-akmLiam Payne dodged a bullet this weekend when shots rang out at a club popular among celebs.

Liam was at The Peppermint Club in WeHo Saturday night when a guy showed up and tried to get in with a fake ID. He got into it with security, made his way to the parking lot and fired shots in the air just outside the club. The guy escaped and is still on the loose.

We're told clubgoers inside heard the shots and freaked out. They stayed put and began tweeting like crazy. One woman tweeted, "Shooting @ the peppermint club. I'm f***ing shaking right now."

Cops found multiple shell casings when they arrived. As for Liam, we're told he left about half an hour after the shots rang out. Probably not his best night ever.

1D's Niall Horan The Pink Slip?

12/8/2016 8:06 AM PST

Niall Horan looked like he knew he had just let a giant cat out of the bag leaving one of L.A.'s most expensive baby stores with a basket of pink stuff. 

Niall's old 1D bandmate, Liam Payne, and his partner, Cheryl Cole, are reportedly expecting in early 2017, but haven't revealed the sex of their baby. Naturally 1D fans jumped to the conclusion the girly stuff Niall's toting is for the couple. 

Of course, it's possible the basket is for someone else ... after all, it is the holidays and Liam and Cheryl are hunkered down in London.

Liam Payne & Cheryl Cole They Don't Know About Us ... Expecting?

11/29/2016 1:36 PM PST

1129_Liam-Payne-and-Cheryl-Cole-pregnant-MEGALiam Payne is either about to be a dad, or his gf had way too much food and beer before enjoying Christmas carols.

The 23-year-old One Direction singer and Cheryl Cole, from Girls Aloud, showed up together Tuesday at the St James Christmas Carol Concert in London -- and it sure looks like something's in the oven.

The couple isn't commenting yet about the baby rumors ... or about what she had for dinner.

Justin Bieber Fast Times With Usain Bolt

11/29/2016 7:35 AM PST

Justin Bieber got down with the fastest man on Earth to celebrate a movie about the Olympian ... and he was anything but sorry to be partying with the champ.

Bieber was in London Monday night and showed up to an after-party following a screening of "I Am Bolt" -- a documentary about Usain Bolt's journey to the Rio Olympics.

Unclear if the Biebs saw the film itself, but he definitely raged with the man of the hour afterward.

One Direction's Liam Payne was there for the screening and party too, but was reportedly on the opposite side of the room ... meaning he missed out on the Bolt/Bieber selfies.

Louis Tomlinson Baby Mama Keeping Me from My Son I Want Joint Custody

6/29/2016 4:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

062916-louis-tomlinson-Louis Tomlinson has had it with his baby mama denying him access to his child, so he's now going to court to seek joint custody ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us Briana Jungwirth has been "inconsistent" in giving Louis access to 5-month-old Freddie Reign ... especially recently.

Louis wants to be a real father and present in Freddie's life, so he's going to court not just seeking joint physical and legal custody, but a 50/50 split in terms of the division of time each spends with their son.

The One Direction singer, we're told, is paying Briana around $15k a month in child support, and a judge will now set whatever amount is deemed appropriate. Louis is also renting a $1 million house for Briana and the kid in Calabasas.

EXCLUSIVE

0512_louis_tomlinson_danielle_campbell_mexico_topless_photos_launchOne day Louis Tomlinson is changing diapers, the next he's sippin' Pacifico and taking off his girlfriend's bikini top in the Mexican sunshine.

Louis took a break from dad duties with 4-month-old Freddie for a vacay with girlfriend Danielle Campbell, who needed his help getting rid of her tan lines.

Being a member of One Direction makes Louis totally qualified to remove tops. Seriously, dude's a pro at this point.

Liam Payne's shaking off his boy band roots by hooking up with Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J ... and the result is way more Timberlake and Jay Z than anything One Direction ever did.

TMZ's obtained the new track called, "You" -- one of 5 Liam's laid down with producer TM88 (from 808 Mafia) and Juicy J -- and you'll hear the 1Der singing the hook. 

As we reported back in January, Liam's got flow too ... we're told you'll hear him rapping, as well as singing, when his solo album drops.

Louis Tomlinson My Baby Is The Real Deal

4/8/2016 8:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0408_louis_tomlinson_baby_real_photos_launch_2Sorry, One Direction fans ... we're shutting down your #Babygate fake baby conspiracy once and for all.

We got Louis Tomlinson out to lunch Thursday in Calabasas, and the pics prove his 2-and-a-half month old son Freddie is a living, breathing little tyke -- and not just a prop.

This has become a thing -- 1D fans are flooding social media with various #babygate conspiracy theories as to why the baby can't be real. They think Louis and his team are photoshopping images and using dolls to fake out the public.

So, here's Exhibit A -- watch and LISTEN to baby Freddie crying out. THIS is a real baby.

Case closed.

One Direction Song Triggers Lawsuit C'mon, C'mon and Pay Us!!!

4/7/2016 4:42 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0807_one_direction_sony_music_gettyOne Direction got Sony so excited the music company paid a wad of cash for the rights to one of their hits ... problem is, Sony sent the check to the wrong company and they won't give it back!

Here's the low down, which is hysterical to everyone but Sony. It licensed the 1D hit, "C'mon, C'mon," along with 2 other songs, for $65k. The company that owns the rights to the song is called Family Affair Productions.

Slight problem ... Sony claims it mistakenly sent the check to a company called Family Affair Music, which cashed it!  

According to a new lawsuit, Sony claims it has been asking Family Affair Music for the money back, but it's fallen on deaf ears.

Those boyz cause nothing but trouble.

1D's Louis Tomlinson Strollin' Solo With Baby Freddie

3/25/2016 11:01 AM PDT

032516-louis-tomlinson-x17Louis Tomlinson turned heads while putting in quality time with his 2-month-old son because, let's face it, it's not everyday you see a One Direction member pushing around a stroller.

Louis pushed Freddie Thursday around the Calabasas Commons ... and made a stop at Barnes & Noble. Hopefully starting him off with the classics like "Goodnight Moon" or "Everyone Poops."

Naturally, we also recommend Sam Jackson's, "Go the F**k to Sleep."

Also ... warning to other boy banders: This could be you.

Use protection.

Louis Tomlinson Custody War Settled I Get the Baby ... For a Price

2/26/2016 10:32 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0226-tomlinson-jungwirth-getty-akm-01Louis Tomlinson and Briana Jungwirth have reached a shaky temporary settlement in their custody war ... avoiding a courtroom showdown by a matter of hours.

We've learned lawyers for the One Direction singer were going to court Friday morning armed with legal docs and their famous client, asking a judge to formally establish paternity on Louis' part and give him access to his 1-month-old son, Freddie.

TMZ broke the story ... Briana was not giving Louis access to their kid and the dispute was over money. We're told under the temporary settlement, he will have access to the child for several hours at a time during the week, but he will not have any overnight visits.

We're told until a short time ago, Louis was paying Briana's expenses but there was no set amount -- it varied from week to week. Things went south when they tried to establish a set monthly amount ... she wanted way more than he was willing to give.

Our sources say the 2 parents have agreed to a temporary custody arrangement while their lawyers hammer out something formal ... both with custody and child support.

Louis Tomlinson Custody Fight Baby Mama Won't Let Me See My Kid

2/26/2016 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0225-tomlinson-jungwirth-getty-instagram-02Louis Tomlinson has lawyered up to wage a custody war, because he says his baby mama is not letting him see their kid ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Louis tell TMZ, the One Direction singer claims Briana Jungwirth has gotten greedy and wants money ... and lots of it. He claims she's using their 1-month-old son, Freddie Reign, to leverage a bigger payday. 

It's a surprising turn ... Louis got Briana a 3 bedroom home in Calabasas and he's renting a $21 million home in L.A. to be close to Freddie.  

Louis has not gotten a DNA test but says there's no doubt he's the dad ... they dated exclusively during the period in which she got pregnant.

We're told Louis is gunning for an order forcing Briana to give him some custodial rights, including significant access to his son.

Louis Tomlinson Hanging with Zayn's Ex-Fiancee

2/25/2016 8:14 AM PST

0225-tomlinson-edwards-splash-01Louis Tomlinson tossed bro code out the window by hitting the town with his old One Direction mate Zayn Malik's ex fiancee.

Louis and Perrie Edwards were spotted Wednesday night taking a car together after the Brit Awards. Perrie and Zayn broke things off in August -- about 5 months after he left the group.

0225-louis-tomlinson-danielle-campbell-AKMGSI-01Last night could've just been a convenient carpool sitch though, since Louis has been tight with actress Danielle Campbell lately.

Besides, even Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono see each other from time to time.

Look it up, 1Ders. It's relevant.
