Tristan, Travis and Scott No Written Custody Deal with the Kardashians

2/6/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Three Kardashian baby daddies are all taking a leap of faith ... that their baby mamas will give them proper custody and/or visitation without the benefit of a custody agreement.

Sources connected to all three men tell TMZ, they never papered their financial and custodial arrangements. We're told Travis Scott and Kylie don't have anything in writing regarding custody or support of their newborn daughter. Same goes for Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian, although that may be a bit premature since she hasn't given birth.

More interesting, perhaps, is that we're told Scott Disick doesn't have a written custody agreement with Kourtney Kardashian. They have 3 kids and from what we hear, the only conflict involves Scott's sobriety.

They have the option at any time of trying to ink a custody arrangement or going to court for one if they can't do it on their own.  

As for Kanye and Kim ... no need for any agreement since they're hitched. 

Republic Records' Charlie Walk Alleged Extortionist Threatened Me ... Resign Or I'll F*** You Up!!!

2/5/2018 2:13 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Republic Records honcho and 'The Four' judge Charlie Walk claims he was being extorted before an ex-employee accused him of sexual misconduct, and says he has a voicemail to prove it. 

TMZ has obtained a voicemail a source close to Charlie claims was left by radio exec Tom Gilligan. The caller, who sounds drunk, offers Charlie a "deal" -- resign from 'The Four' and Republic and "nobody will ever say anything." He claimed Walk hired hookers, and 3 women were ready to go public as part of the #MeToo movement.

Gilligan tells us he doesn't recall leaving a voicemail for Walk, but does acknowledge he was drunk and upset with him around the same time. He claims Charlie had ignored his request to set up a meet-and-greet with Jon Bon Jovi.

Although the message was left about a month before Tristan Coopersmith went public with allegations against Walk -- Gilligan insists he has nothing to do with her or an extortion plot. As we reported ... Walk pulled out of 'The Four' finale, airing this week.

Walk's attorney, Duncan Levin, says they've filed a complaint about Gilligan with the Manhattan D.A.'s office and submitted the voicemail as evidence.

Breaking News

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are parents after she gave birth Thursday to a "beautiful and healthy" baby girl ... according to Kylie herself.

Kylie made the announcement Sunday. She delivered her firstborn at Cedars-Sinai in L.A., the same hospital where sisters Kim and Kourtney delivered their broodsRob's daughter, Dream, was also born there. Kylie's kid came out at 4:43 PM weighing 8lbs and 9 ounces.

TMZ broke the story in September that Kylie was pregnant with Travis' kid, but she's kept the pregnancy top secret. KJ never confirmed, and totally went underground ... staying out of the spotlight for the last 5 months.

We finally got a shot of her a week ago, but even then she was wearing a baggy black sweatshirt. Now the question -- how long will she keep the new baby under wraps?

Kylie addressed the secrecy in a statement, apologizing for keeping her fans in the dark.

Blac Chyna Kim Mean Girl'd Me With Her Valentine 'Gift'

2/2/2018 4:07 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna's firing off a Valentine's Day message for her almost sister-in-law Kim Kardashian -- don't be cruel!

Sources close to Chyna tell TMZ ... she's pissed about the "gift" she received the other day from Kim. As we first reported, KK sent a bunch of giant chocolate hearts -- with her new perfume inside -- to dozens of friends, loved ones ... and haters.

We'll give you one guess which list Blac Chyna made.

While she was tight-lipped Thursday at LAX when we asked about Kim's chocolate heart ... we're told BC considers Kim a "very cruel, huge bully" who's using "Mean Girls" tactics to promote her product.

Our sources say she's surprised Kim would do this, since she's Dream's aunt. She also disagrees with the "hater" label because she says she's never tried to tarnish Kim's image.

There's that little matter of attempting to sue Kim for getting "Rob and Chyna" canceled -- but who's counting?

Brooke Hogan Grease Me Up And Put Me in, Coach!!!

2/2/2018 7:32 AM PST

Wanna see Brooke Hogan covered in lube? Well, you're in luck.

Brooke was doused in some sort of slippery fluid Thursday in Santa Monica while trying to climb UP a slide. It wasn't just for giggles -- Brooke, Casper Smart, Drake Bell, Lil Mama, Selita Ebanks and several other celebs are taping a new season of 'Champs vs. Stars' for MTV.

Brooke and co. take on another team of retired athletes and celebs for the competition reality show.

Check out the video ... we can't tell who won this particular event.

Other than the spectators, that is.

'The Four' Judge Charlie Walk Benches Himself Amid Sexual Harassment Allegation

1/31/2018 2:27 PM PST
Breaking News

6:45 PM PT -- Walk will not appear in the finale of 'The Four' ... saying he made the decision not to attend "out of respect for the contestants, my fellow judges and everyone involved with the show."

He says he doesn't want his presence to be a distraction, but denies the allegations against him by adding ... "there has been an extreme rush to judgment against me in this particular case which is unfair and inconsistent with anything that even actually happened."

'The Four' could be down from 4 judges to 3 very shortly -- FOX is reportedly close to cutting ties with Charlie Walk, the Republic Records honcho accused of sexually harassing a former employee.

The approaching shakeup comes on the heels of Tristan Coopersmith's claim Walk repeatedly groped and harassed her during their years working together at Sony Music. Walk co-judged FOX's new talent search with Diddy, Meghan Trainor and DJ Khaled.

Walk will appear on Thursday night's pre-taped episode of the show, but will not appear next week ... according to Deadline.

Although, Charlie's denied Coopersmith's allegation ... he's also been suspended from Republic Records, which says it's hired a law firm to investigate the claims.

Sean Spicer LOL at Omarosa's 'Big Brother' Gig

1/30/2018 3:28 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Sean Spicer considers Omarosa's new gig with "Celebrity Big Brother" a laughing matter ... and a huge step down!!!

We got Trump's former White House Press Secretary Tuesday in NYC, and asked if he'll be watching his former colleague on the reality show. Spicy laughed and said anything after the White House is a downgrade. Odd for him to say, since he's in post-WH mode, too.

We also asked Spicer if he has advice for the Prez ahead of the State of the Union address. It's amazing how quickly he fell back into podium mode.

EXCLUSIVE

Omarosa's latest reality gig on "Celebrity Big Brother" gives her a chance at a massive payout ... and the longer she survives the house, the more cash she'll walk away with.

Sources close to the production tell TMZ, each of the show's celeb house guests signed a base deal of about $200k. We're told the longer the celebs stick around, the more they can get paid. Our sources say the winner will take home a cool $500k.

The cash won't come easy -- O's up against world class athletes Chuck Liddell and Metta World Peace, singer Mark McGrath and 'Housewife' Brandi Glanville -- just to name a few. 

May the best most cut-throat celeb win!

EXCLUSIVE

Julie Chen is the perfect employee AND the perfect wife ... nobody knows this better than Les Moonves

We got Julie leaving 'The Late Show' Monday in NYC and asked her about her CBS top dog hubby demanding she take a pay cut for the upcoming "Celebrity Big Brother" season. Les reportedly told Julie the salary trim wasn't up for negotiation ... since the upcoming season is significantly shorter than the usual 90-day plus of "Big Brother."

Check it out ... Julie wasn't fazed by the demand. BTW, she seems excited about Omarosa joining the cast.

Charlie Walk 'The Four' Judge Accused of Sexual Harassment

1/29/2018 3:48 PM PST
Breaking News

Walk says, "“There has never been a single HR claim against me at any time during my 25+ year career, spanning three major companies.” He told Deadline, “I have consistently been a supporter of the women’s movement and this is the first time I have ever heard of this or any other allegation — and it is false.”One of Charlie Walk's former employees claims "The Four" judge repeatedly groped her, and sent her vulgar, sexually charged text messages ... ultimately forcing her to quit the music biz.

The accuser, Tristan Coopersmith, claims Walk -- currently prez of Republic Records -- harassed her while they worked together at Sony Music. In an open letter, Tristan wrote, "For a year I shuddered at the idea of being called into your office, where you would stealthily close the door and make lewd comments about my body and share your fantasies of having sex with me. I was 27."

She says she repeatedly reminded Walk, her boss at the time, he was married with kids, but claims it had no impact. Tristan claims Walk would grab her leg under the table dinner meetings ... sometimes while his wife was sitting across from them.

She detailed one alleged encounter ... "And then there was that event at your swank pad when you actually cornered me and pushed me into your bedroom and onto your bed. The bed you shared with your wife… your wife who was in the room next door. You being drunk and me being 6 inches taller was my saving grace."

Tristan quit the music biz 8 years ago, and is now a psychotherapist. She posted the letter on her website. Tristan says she's forgiven Walk and hopes he can change his ways.

It's unclear if the allegations will have effect on Walk's job on "The Four" ... we've reached out to FOX.

Jennifer Williams Court Orders Protection from Ex-BF

1/29/2018 1:31 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Williams is celebrating a victory in court over the ex-bf she claims is violent and threatening.

We got the "Basketball Wives" star Monday outside court in downtown L.A., and she was brandishing the temporary restraining order the judge had just granted. It requires her ex, Tim Norman, to stay at least 100 yards away from her at all times.

Jennifer's not satisfied though, and told us she'll be back in court.

As for seeing Tim -- who's on OWN's reality show "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" -- in court? Jennifer claims he's a "sick person" who needs help.

Looks like this drama will play out on the upcoming season of "Basketball Wives" -- cameras were following Jennifer and her pal, Evelyn Lozada, outside court.

'Basketball Wives' Star Jennifer Williams My Ex Is Abusive Please, Judge, I Need a Restraining Order

1/29/2018 10:38 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Basketball Wives" star Jennifer Williams has fired back at her ex-boyfriend, claiming he's violent and she's deathly afraid of him.

Jennifer was in court Monday AM asking a judge for a domestic violence restraining order against James "Tim" Norman. He obtained a restraining order against her last month, claiming she slashed his tires in a rage.

Jennifer says in her new legal docs Norman is lying "purely to harass and stalk me, and possibly to drum up attention for himself and his own television show." He has a show called "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's," which is on Oprah's OWN network.

Jennifer says she did not slash Norman's tires ... she has an alibi, claiming she was at a friend's birthday brunch.

She says in her legal docs Norman has a long history of abusing her. She says in Sept 2016 at a Drake concert he verbally abused her and threatened to beat up a guy who was looking at her. Jennifer says Norman sent her a text message afterward, saying, "I'm not really the type of bitch n**** you obviously think I am for you to stand there next to me eyeing that sand n****."

Jennifer says there were other instances ... he went on her phone, confronted her and threw the phone at her, calling her a lying bitch. She says he accused her of sleeping with other men.

She says she ended the relationship last September, and since then he has been hounding her friends, asking them to get in touch with her on his behalf.

She's currently in court and has a witness ... fellow "Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada. Evelyn filed a declaration saying Jennifer called her on December 17 and said she was extremely afraid of Norman because he could be very violent.

Omarosa's got herself a new gig even before her speaking gig starts -- and it's back on reality TV ... as in "Celebrity Big Brother" on CBS.

Looks like she's getting her feet wet first, though, with some familiar territory in front of the cameras.
