Kim Zolciak to NeNe I'll Sue You for Calling Me Racist And You Do Have Roaches!!!

10/11/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak is threatening to sue NeNe Leakes for millions of dollars unless she immediately apologizes for calling her and her daughter, Brielle, racists and KKK members.

Kim hired Allison Hart at the high-powered law firm Lavely & Singer, and it didn't take long for them to fire off a super threatening demand letter. 

The letter was triggered by a video Brielle shot which appears to show roaches crawling on NeNe's bathroom floor.

The letter, obtained by TMZ, references some choice comments NeNe made on social media, including, "Kim & her child did something very wrong & disgusting! Black people and roaches in the same sentence don't work for me boo." She then went on to call Brielle "#racisttrash" and "#KKK," adding, "Kim & her daughter oops whole family are racists!"

The letter calls the statements "outrageous and malicious lies."  

What's more, the lawyer says Brielle never posted the video showing the cockroaches crawling on the floor, but it was NeNe who got the video and posted it on Twitter and Instagram.

The letter makes it clear ... NeNe has roaches, but it's not racist to say that.

What's more ... the letter claims NeNe is going after Kim and Brielle out of jealousy. They have a successful show on Bravo, "Don't Be Tardy," and NeNe is trying to get people to boycott the program with hashtags like, #blackpeopleneedtostopsupportingtheprejudice."

Attorney Hart wants a prominent retraction on Instagram and Twitter and other social media sites where NeNe posted her comments, along with an apology.

If that doesn't happen ... "Your conduct exposes you to multi-million dollar liability."

We reached out to NeNe ... so far, no word back.

10/10/2017 9:56 PM PDT

Eminem just went nuclear on Donald Trump ... dropping a freestyle at The BET Hip-Hop Awards that ripped The Prez apart.

The nearly 5 minute-long segment touched on everything from Trump's criticism of NFL players taking a knee to his proposed border wall.

Among some of Em's highlight lyrics ...

-"Racism's the only thing he's fantastic for."

-"I'm throwing that piece of s*** against the wall til it sticks."

-And giving a big "F*** YOU" to any of the rapper's fans who support 45.

Eminem ended his freestyle with, "We love our country and we love our military, but we f***** HATE TRUMP."

Snoop Dogg, speaking for roughly half the country, approves.

Rapper Z-RO No Felony Indictment in Just Brittany Beating Case

10/10/2017 5:58 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Houston rapper Z-RO will not face felony criminal charges for allegedly beating his then-gf Just Brittany ... TMZ has learned.

According to court records, a grand jury failed to indict Z-RO Tuesday on felony assault charges. TMZ broke the story ... Z-RO's ex-gf claimed the rapper slapped, punched and dragged her around his house while holding a pistol.

Brittany even handed over an audio recording of the alleged beating, prompting cops to arrest Z-RO in July.

Brittany later told us -- on "Raq Rants" -- Z-RO rapped about the alleged incident, and claimed he had "no soul in his eyes" during the attack. 

Z-RO's attorney, Charles Adams, tells TMZ ... there were huge inconsistencies between the recording and the written statement Brittany provided cops. He believes that's ultimately why the grand jury exonerated Z-RO.

NeNe posted her apology on Facebook Monday, saying ... "I truly regret and apologize for what I said from the stage in Oakland over the weekend. Sometimes words can cut deep and hurt when you have no intentions of them doing so."

As we reported ... NeNe was getting booed onstage during a stand-up set in Oakland Saturday night when she told one of the hecklers in the crowd she hoped her Uber driver raped her on the way home.

One apology down ... one more to go?

Usher Accuser Said They Always Used Condoms ... Changed Story in Lawsuit

10/9/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Usher's herpes accuser in Georgia, Laura Helm, insisted she ONLY had protected sex with him -- even though she claimed otherwise in her $20 million lawsuit ... but she had a good reason for lying, according to her attorney. 

TMZ obtained a recording of Helm on the phone telling a male friend she had no plans to sue Usher after finding out he allegedly has herpes. She said Usher had always worn a condom when they had sex ... so she wasn't concerned about being exposed to the virus. As she put it ... "That's why they make protection, for people who have STDs."

The conversation went down July 19 ... just 2 days before Helm filed the lawsuit and changed her story. In the docs she said Usher did NOT use a condom when they had sex in New Orleans. The two different stories seem to create a huge credibility problem for Helm.

Her attorney, Lisa West, says Helm only lied because she thought her publicist, Dennis Byron -- the guy on the phone -- was trying to shop a story to the media about Usher having an affair.

West says Helm "didn't want to be exploited and, in her attempt to deter Byron from doing so, she told him (inaccurately) that she never had unprotected sex with Usher and that she did not have herpes." West adds she's gone to law enforcement because Helm thinks Byron was extorting her.

Worth noting -- Helm also accused Byron of stalking her, but on Friday a judge dismissed the matter for lack of evidence. 

Marlon Wayans & Busta Rhymes Epic Freestyle Rap Battle 'Thought You Was 8 Months Pregnant!'

10/9/2017 8:51 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Wayans and Busta Rhymes pulled no punches torching each other in a freestyle rap battle that was probably better suited for a "Comedy Central Roast."

Marlon and Busta hit up the official reopening of LIV in Miami Sunday night where they celebrated Jeezy's birthday. Wilmer Valderrama and Teyana Taylor were also there, but the REAL action happened outside.

Marlon and Busta, for some reason, decided to put on a show with insults flying back and forth. It's pretty hilarious, and if we had to pick a winner -- hand Marlon the belt.

C'mon, he worked ... "You look like black Shrek" into his rhyme.

Sorry, Busta.

Nelly Accuser Claims Rape without Condom His Lawyer Says He Has Proof She's a Liar

10/8/2017 11:33 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman who claims Nelly raped her says she had been partying with him before he forced her to have sex without a condom, but Nelly's lawyer says he will expose her for what she is ... a liar.

We've learned the 21-year-old Seattle resident claims she met Nelly at a club in Washington, where she and her friends drank at his table and got "tipsy."

She says she was invited to an after-party and drove off with Nelly's people. The woman says she was taken to Nelly's tour bus.  

She says she was in Nelly's room with him when he tried to have sex with her and she said no. She claims Nelly told her to "shut up" and said he wanted to have sex with her without protection, which she says he did over her objections.  

The woman says, afterward, Nelly offered her money, but she declined, and then a woman came up and said, "You gotta go." She kicked her off the bus and threw $100 at her.

Nelly's lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, tells TMZ, "It does not surprise me that she wanted to have her story publicized. That is playbook 101 of a person with an agenda and clearly she has one. The agenda is money, fame and notoriety."

Rosenblum says he has an investigator on the case and "we will be able to show by objective evidence and unbiased witnesses that she has zero credibility."

The lawyer adds, "She's a person who is making a dangerous, fraudulent allegation to accomplish her own goals."

TMZ broke the story ... Nelly was arrested early Saturday for second degree rape and released a short time later.

The restaurant says the policy of not seating 6 or more walk-ins is applied fairly and equally.

Tiny joined T.I., who said the African American community would now speak with their wallets.

Akon Has Nelly's Back Guys Like Us are Targets!!

10/8/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Akon firmly believes there's no way Nelly raped anyone, and his theory on what led to his friend's arrest echoes what Nelly claims himself.

We got the singer at LAX Saturday, and our guy throws him for a loop right away with the news. Akon's clearly not buying it, though ... and practically guarantees it's not true because he knows Nelly.

Then it gets really interesting ... Akon speculates the rape charge could be a case of mistaken identity or -- even worse -- the accuser might have made it all up to try to score an easy payday from the rapper.

Either way it's evident -- Akon thinks the rape allegations against Nelly are completely bogus ... which is exactly how Nelly feels.
