'Love and Hip Hop Hollywood' Drops Hazel-E!!! But Not Over Homophobic Rant, Axe Fell 2 Weeks Ago

10/20/2017 1:12 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Love and Hip Hop Hollywood" is done with Hazel-E -- she's been dropped from the hit show, but producers claim it's NOT because she said all gays should burn in hell.

A spokesperson for VH1 and the show's producers, Monami and Eastern, say they collectively decided not to pick up Hazel's option for the next season of 'LHHH' -- but the decision was made on Oct. 4. That's a full 2 weeks before Hazel and her boyfriend went on a heinously homophobic social media rant.

Sources connected to production tell us Hazel had already worn out her welcome by the time she made the remark about gays and the Bible. We're told she pissed off producers back in September, during the reunion show taping, which is why they pulled the plug.

As we reported, 'LHH' creator Mona Scott-Young was infuriated by Hazel's verbal attack, and made sure VH1 knew it ... perhaps to squash any possibility of bringing her back.

'LHHH' Honcho Mona Scott-Young Hazel-E Must Go After Burning Gays Comment

10/20/2017 9:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" creator Mona Scott-Young is disgusted by Hazel-E's homophobic social media rant, and if she gets her way ... Hazel will be canned ASAP.

Sources close to the 'LHHH' executive producer tell TMZ ... she made it clear with VH1 she expects Hazel to get booted from the show for saying gays should burn in hell, but contrary to popular belief ... Mona doesn't get final say on personnel decisions.

Our sources say it's not just the homophobic rant that pissed her off ... Hazel's negative remarks about women of color have disgusted her as well.

We're told Mona's production company is not the only one involved with 'LHHH' so Hazel's fate will be a group decision -- but she's pressing the network hard to 86 her.

As we reported, Hazel told us she's sorry about her homophobic comments. Mostly.

Hazel-E Sorry I Said All Gays Should Burn But the Bible Says ...

10/19/2017 3:47 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" star Hazel-E is eating her words, and asking her LGBT fans to forgive her for saying gays should burn in hell. 

We spoke to Hazel Thursday ... the day after she went on a homophobic social media rant. Someone accused her BF and fellow 'LHHH' star Rose Burgandy of being gay, and they both went ballistic -- invoking the Bible, and wishing a fiery death on all gays.

Hazel admits it wasn't the brightest thing to do, especially because she relies heavily on the LGBT community's support. She's now backing off the death wish, but she's clinging to the religious part of her rant.

Breaking News

Nicki Minaj will take the stand during her brother's child rape trial ... and is expected to tell jurors the mother of the alleged victim attempted to extort her for millions.

Nicki will be the star witness during Jelani Maraj's court case in NYC, where he stands accused of raping his then 11-year-old stepdaughter in 2015.

During opening arguments Thursday, Maraj's defense attorney, David Schwartz, told jurors his client's then-wife, Jacqueline Robinson, forced her children to lie to authorities in an attempt to squeeze $25 million out of Nicki.

He said Robinson told Nicki, "I can make the charges go away for $25 million." Schwartz went on to say Robinson hatched a plan to get Maraj to marry her only for the opportunity to extort Nicki. 

Unclear when Nicki herself will take the stand ... but we're sure she'll have a lot to say.

EXCLUSIVE

Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka'oir did more than cut the cake at their wedding reception -- they sliced into a 5-figure work of art ... with a sword!!!

Edda's Cake Designs tells us their team, including designer Edda Martinez, logged a ton of hours piecing together the 10-foot beast. Yes, that's the tallest cake they've ever baked.

We're told it required 3 months of planning, 3 days of baking, 8,000 handmade sugar flowers and 2,500 Swarovski crystals ... for decoration only. No shortage of flavor -- it had layers of red velvet, amaretto, carrot, banana nut and Jamaican rum cake.

Total cost ... $75k, but BET picked up the tab as part of the $1 million 'Mane Event' wedding special.

Edda's threw in the sword Gucci and Keyshia used to cut the cake. Looks like they could've used a ladder too.

Blac Chyna Sues Kardashians for Torpedoing Reality Show ... Network Calls BS

10/17/2017 12:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna is now suing the entire Kardashian family saying they were responsible for putting the kibosh on her reality show with Rob, costing her a fortune -- but E! sources are saying that's BS, and there are emails that prove it.

Chyna claims the Kardashians interfered with the shooting of "Rob & Chyna" to the point E! network pulled the plug, claiming production was impossible. In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Chyna says the network, the production company and the stars of the show -- herself and Rob -- were all on board to shoot a 2nd season. 

According to the suit, the Kardashians used their "power and influence over the E! network to kill the second season." However, our network sources say the couple split at the beginning of the show's first season, so a second was doubtful from the beginning.

However, sources connected to the network tell us they have documentation showing the reason the show was not picked up is because Chyna was making it impossible -- she refused to be in the same room as Rob ... so there would be no plausible way to shoot another season.

We're also told E! was unhappy with anemic ratings.

Chyna is also suing the family for battery over her claims Rob brutalized her during an April domestic violence incident. In the suit, she says Rob grabbed her phone, knocked her to the ground ... and she ended up calling her son King's nanny for help. She claims Rob flipped out and tore her bedroom door off at the hinges.

She also claims Rob repeatedly threatened to kill himself, and the suit includes text messages where Rob says things like, "I'm literally on the verge of killing myself and u couldn't care less." She's also included a photo she says is Rob's hand filled with pills he was threatening to take to kill himself if she didn't immediately respond to his text.

LeBron James I Talked to My Kids About Racism After N-Word Graffiti Incident

10/17/2017 9:34 AM PDT

LeBron James says he used the n-word vandalism incident at his Brentwood home to warn his children about racism ... revealing he turned the hate crime into a teachable moment.

We broke the story ... a racial slur was spray-painted on the front gate of LeBron's L.A. home on May 31.

In an interview with GQ, LBJ discussed the incident that happened in "one of the best f***ing neighborhoods in America" ... saying, "True colors will show, and it showed for me during the playoffs."

James says he talked to his children about what happened, and made an effort to turn the situation into a positive. He says ... "I let them know this is what it is, this is how it's going to be. When it's time for y'all to fly, you'll have to understand that."

"When y'all go out in public and y'all start driving or y'all start moving around, be respectful to cops, as much as you can. When you get pulled over, call your mom or dad, put it on speakerphone, and put your phone underneath the seat. But be respectful the whole time."

There's a lot more to the feature ... Bron talks about his future in Cleveland, whether he'd consider running for president, and the Cavs owner Dan Gilbert's infamous letter.

Blac Chyna, Tyga Yeah, We're Cool ... But Only for King

10/17/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna and Tyga are willing to play nice with each other and even hang out together in public again, but only on one small -- yet growing -- condition ... namely, their son. 

Sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ ... Chyna and Tyga's unexpected reunion this weekend for King Cairo's 5th birthday party at Six Flags was at least 2 months in the making, and mostly thanks to King's nanny.

We're told the nanny convinced the feuding exes to make peace during a 3-way phone convo. The impetus for burying the hatchet -- King was about to start kindergarten, which meant there would be upcoming activities requiring co-parenting.

Before the peace summit, our sources say Chyna didn't even have Tyga's phone number - but now the feeling is they're cool being near each other ... as long as King's third-wheeling.

If nothing else, opening communication lines should help 'em avoid planning disasters like doubling up King's birthday themes.

D.L. Hughley Colin Kaepernick Is More Hated Than O.J.

10/16/2017 11:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

D.L. Hughley says there's someone America hates MORE than O.J. Simpson, and that man is Colin Kaepernick ... who Hughley thinks is getting the major shaft from NFL owners, and the American public.

As we previously reported, Kaep is gearing up to file a grievance against the NFL, alleging collusion by the NFL owners to keep him out of the league following his national anthem protest.

We got Hughley at LAX, and he told our guy he agrees 100% the NFL honchos are blackballing Colin -- and he has a reason.

"If Kaepernick had gotten an opportunity to try out for a squad and not made it, then this whole thing wouldn't have merit." Later adding, "If he's incapable of playing how come they've never let him prove it on the field?"

D.L. wasn't finished, saying in his opinion Kaep is one of the three most hated black men in America along with Obama and the aforementioned double murderer. But in his opinion, Colin has it worse.

"They hate Colin Kaepernick right now more than they hate O.J."

Nelly Rape Case Still Open for Cops After Accuser Backs Down

10/16/2017 11:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nelly's rape accuser refusing to testify doesn't change a thing for cops who are powering through with the investigation ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources in Washington State tell us police in Auburn are undeterred by the accuser's noncooperation with the investigation. We're told Auburn PD is still gathering evidence and plans to present the case to the prosecutor's office.

TMZ broke the story ... the alleged victim says she couldn't take the pressure of taking on a celebrity, and felt betrayed by police -- so she would not testify against Nelly. While her noncooperation makes the case more challenging, it's not impossible to prosecute.

We're told Auburn cops want to present the case to prosecutors soon -- within the next week.

Nelly's attorney, Scott Rosenblum, tells TMZ he's confident the case will be closed based on the evidence. He adds, "I would expect the police to do their due diligence."

Ultimately, it will be up to prosecutors to decide if Nelly's charged. Bottom line? Although he acted like a weight was lifted off his shoulders this weekend ... he's not off the hook yet.
