2/12/2016 4:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jay Z finally responded to online anchor Tomi Lahren's attack on Beyonce's halftime show and his criminal past ... and it's awesome. 

Lahren's rant went viral when she called out Bey, saying ... "Your husband was a drug dealer for 14 years."

Jay Z was hanging out with podcaster Tax Stone when Tax decided to reference Tomi's comment.

Fair to say Jay is umm ... amused by Tomi's take on his history.

Nick Cannon got more than he bargained for when some "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars went on his show and one bragged about banging his estranged wife.

Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez were guests on "Wild 'N Out" Monday when the 2 ex-lovebirds squared off during the rap battle against Nick and his crew. It started out all fun and games, but got progressively nasty. At one point Stevie J said he banged Mariah Carey not once but twice.

Nick got pissed off, and then told Stevie J he should worry about Joseline because she was sleeping with Rick Ross.  

It got down and dirtier, to the point Nick threatened the old Hollywood adage, "You'll never work in this town again," because he has so many TV shows and connections.

Eyewitnesses tell us it looked like they were about to come to blows, so producers stepped in, separated them and calmed them down. The picture we got tells part of the story.

Christopher Darden Wins Restraining Order Against Baby Mama She's Obsessed with O.J.

2/10/2016 4:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021016-christopher-darden-gettyFormer O.J. Simpson prosecutor Chris Darden claims one of his baby mamas has been hounding and harassing him for months, making allegations he traded legal services for sex.

Darden just got a restraining order against Celia Smith, whom he says was upset because he didn't get her an apartment back in June. According to Darden's legal docs, Smith is angry that he got another one of his baby mamas an apartment but didn't get her one.

Darden acknowledges he has a 2-year-old daughter with Smith.

According to Darden, back in June, Smith posted on his law office's Yelp page, "Mr. Darden has sex with his clients if you don't have enough money to hire him, and you have p***y he will take your case." He says she rants on that he has "7 kids by 7 different women."

Darden also says Smith has developed a fixation with the O.J. Simpson case, emailing him under the name "Nicole Brown Simpson."  He says she's unstable and needs psychiatric intervention.

Darden says Smith has demanded to know how much money he's getting from the FX show, 'The People v. O.J. Simpson.' He says, "She rejected my true claim that I was neither consulted, contracted, paid or involved in any way with the show."

Darden says his family is "on pins and needles" over her daily harassment. He now has a restraining order keeping her 100 yards from him and prohibiting contact by email, telephone, mail or any other electronic means. The order does allow Smith to have "brief and peaceful contact" with Darden as it relates to their child. 

'Little Women: LA' Gets a Little Justice in 'The People's Court'

2/10/2016 3:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Little Women: LA" star Christy McGinity learned rolling through an intersection -- even just a little -- can prove costly.

Christy appeared before Judge Marilyn Milian Monday for a taping of "The People's Court."  She was being sued by a woman who claimed Christy slammed into her Mercedes at a L.A. intersection.

Christy climbed a step ladder to give the judge a blow-by-blow, but in the end, it was her admission she rolled through a red light to make a right that sunk her.

It's ironic ... Christy was in the car with her 16-year-old daughter, whom she was teaching how to drive.

Katharine McPhee Divorce Finalized ... 'Smash'ing Victory for Nick

2/10/2016 2:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021016-katharine-mcphee-divorce-tmz-03Katharine McPhee's divorce has been finalized and Nicholas Cokas won the battle of when they separated ... which means he's walking away with a lot more cash. 

Cokas is getting spousal support ... plus they're splitting a lot of the dough Katharine's made as a singer and actress. For instance, they're going 50-50 on income from her music rights on all songs made during their marriage ... which includes some still unreleased songs. 

They've also agreed to split all income from her now canceled NBC show, "Smash."

Nick and Katharine hugely disagreed on when they separated -- she claimed it was March 2013, while he said May 2014. The final divorce docs say it was 2014 ... which is why they're splitting the "Smash" cash.

As for her current CBS show, "Scorpion" -- they're only divvying up the money from the pilot episode. Her $700k contract with Columbia/Epic Records is also getting split down the middle.

On the all-important car front -- Kat gets her 2012 Mercedes Benz M Class SUV, and Nick gets the 2013 Jeep Wrangler.

Katharine and Nicholas got married in February 2008, and had an ugly break-up when he accused her of banging the director of "Smash."

Pauley Perrette Claims Second Attack By Homeless Man

Breaking News

021016-pauley-perrette-tmz-02"NCIS" star Pauley Perrette claims she was attacked by another homeless guy ... this time in her car and narrowly escaped after getting all evangelical on the dude.

Perrette says she was stopped on a busy street in Hollywood when she gave a buck to a "pretty off homeless guy" asking for change.

Perrette says the guy then grabbed her wrist and stuck his head into her car demanding to know the time.  She says her immediate reaction was to yell "I rebuke you satan in the name of Jesus Christ!" And then she told him the time ... 5:37 PM.

Seems to have done the trick ... because the dude let go.

It gets weirder ... Perrette says she had a taser and tactical knife with her in the car too, but chose to go the good Samaritan route instead.

This is the second time in 3 months she says she's been attacked by a pedestrian ... so chances are next time the person won't be so lucky.

'People v. O.J.' Kardashian Family Cheer NEVER Happened

2/10/2016 7:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Kardashian sisters don't love themselves as much as the producers of 'People v. O.J. Simpson' are making it seem.

Our family sources tell us Kim was watching and thought the scene was over-the-top and "ridiculous."

If you missed it ... Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob all gathered around a TV watching their father Robert Kardashian at a news conference. When someone mispronounces the family name, they all start chanting it.

We're told the sisters absolutely remember watching their dad reading O.J.'s letter during the news conference, and they were certainly used to people, in general, screwing up their name -- but the cheering while watching TV simply "never happened."

The producers are clearly trying to portray the girls as fame whores -- with the first seeds being planted during the O.J. case -- but this time, at least, we're told they went too far.

Must be her thing.
