XXXTentacion Sent to Jail!!! Facing 7 NEW Felonies

12/15/2017 7:49 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

XXXTentacion was sent straight to jail Friday morning after prosecutors slapped him with 7 new charges, all felonies, in his 2016 domestic violence case.

The new counts include different degrees of witness tampering and witness harassment. Prosecutors believe he coerced the ex-girlfriend he's accused of beating. He was already facing charges of battery against a pregnant woman and false imprisonment.

As we reported ... X filed a document earlier this month allegedly signed by the woman and stating she no longer wanted him to be prosecuted.

At Friday's hearing in Miami-Dade County, the judge said he had violated his bond from his initial arrest ... so he was immediately sent to jail, and is being held without bail.

He'll likely remain behind bars until trial -- and is now facing decades in prison, at minimum, if convicted.

Lil Yachty I'm Cool with Joe Budden Now If He's Cool with Bald Jokes

12/15/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Yachty's doing his best to downplay the beef he and Migos had brewing Joe Budden -- but it's hard to believe him when they just collab'd on a Budden diss track!

We got the "Peek A Boo" rapper at LAX Thursday, and asked if he wants Budden to see the upcoming video for "Ice Tray." He admits they hired a Joe look-alike just to troll him, but says he thinks the real Joe should realize it's all in good fun.

Yachty revealed a behind-the-scenes secret about the video having to do with Budden's bald head --and also slammed the "groupies" who leaked the prank early.

As we reported ... the Budden/Migos beef began during an interview before the BET Awards in June.

For some reason, Yachty thinks it's all cooled down now, despite "Ice Tray" lyrics like ... "If a n***a hatin', call him Joe Budden (p***y!)”

Nelly's fully off the hook now in that alleged rape in Washington State -- prosecutors say they can't proceed ... TMZ has learned.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office tells us the alleged victim's refusal to cooperate made it impossible for them to go forward with charging Nelly with any crime.

He was booked on 2 counts of burglary, 2 counts of theft by taking and 2 counts of theft by deception.
