Carmelo and La La Anthony Separated

4/17/2017 1:11 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Carmelo and La La Anthony are separated ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the couple tell us the actress and NBA superstar are now living separately. La La moved out of the family home last week and has her own place in NYC now.

We're told the couple's had ups and downs in the past, but the current NBA season has been extremely stressful on the marriage for several months. Carmelo's been plagued by trade talks ... with the Knicks looking to move him to another team.

Our sources say the split is still amicable. They were together just this past weekend at their 10-year-old son Kiyan's basketball game.

We're told La La and Carmelo have NO plans to uproot Kiyan from his friends and school in NY.

Problem is ... it seems likely Carmelo will have to leave town, because just last week Knicks President Phil Jackson said it was time for him to go.

Neither is talking divorce yet, just separation. The couple got married in 2010.

Exclusive Details

Lil Uzi Vert is officially the biggest Marilyn Manson fan ... unless you know of any others who spent six figures to make an iced out pendant in his likeness.

Uzi was rocking his newest piece at Coachella this weekend. The image of Manson rockin' Mickey Mouse ears is damn near priceless -- the chain and pendant together are made up of 16,000 diamonds totaling 155 carats.

Celeb jeweler Ben Baller delivered the goods to Uzi on Sunday, and IF & Co. Jewelers made it for $220k. We're told the labor alone cost $50,000.

Manson is the only person Uzi follows on IG, so his love for the rocker is deep ... and expensive.

Nobody does Coachella like Post Malone ... who celebrated with some friends, some fans, and $8,000 worth of Popeyes ... which probably made him a lot more friends.

Post was at the music fest Sunday celebrating his "Stoney" album going platinum, when he decided to seriously turn up by ordering 10,000 Popeyes biscuits. Naturally, Post used Postmates to deliver the goods.

The delivery guy's car was nearly packed to the roof with the bread. Post showed his gratitude though with a temporary name change.

EXCLUSIVE

Shyanne Riekena already won a judgment against Tyga's company for injuries sustained when a light stand came crashing down on her, leaving a 4-inch gash on the top of her head.

As we reported ... Tyga's music company got slapped with a $236,000 judgment but failed to pay. Now, with interest, the judgment has swelled to $250k.

Jas Prince Sues Birdman Over Drake Contract ... Shady Deals Gonna Cost Ya

4/17/2017 12:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jas Prince is following through on the promise his father made -- going directly after Birdman to get the millions in Drake profits the Cash Money honcho's been sitting on ... according to a new lawsuit.

In the new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Jas calls out Birdman and his brother Ronald "Slim" Williams -- co-founders of Cash Money -- for failing to pay up on the Drake deal.

Quick backstory:  Jas discovered Drizzy, hooked him up with Aspire Music Group to manage him, and Cash Money to be his label. As a result, Drake's Young Money contract calls for Jas and Aspire to get paid.

And that's the problem ... according to the suit, Birdman's blowing off his contractual duty to pay Aspire Music one-third of his Drake profits. He also signed Drake to an exclusive deal in January 2013, but according to docs ... that new contract breached Drake's original one, and cheated Aspire out of $4 million.

Aspire filed the new lawsuit, but sources connected to the case tell us Jas is calling the shots ... as he now owns a chunk of Aspire. He'd previously sued Cash Money, but we're told Jas is going harder than ever now to get the money straight from Birdman.

How hard? One of Aspire's attorneys is Marc Kasowitz, who also famously reps President Trump.

We've reached out to Birdman's reps, but no word back.

Just last week, Jas' father ... James Prince vowed he would get the money Birdman owes his son AND Lil Wayne. Based on his words, someone's ass is on the line in this case.

4/16/2017 2:16 PM PDT

Migos had the masses rapping along with them at Coachella this weekend, and that includes kids too ... especially this little guy.

Here's footage of a little boy -- he can't be more than 6 or 7 -- propped up on his dad's shoulders ... and reciting Migos' "Bad and Boujee" ... almost word for word.

Looks like he knows the song pretty damn well, and he seems to enjoy it ... a lot. Giggin' like this usually means you're a bonafide fan.

Bet he doesn't know anything about "Versace" though ... it was before his time.

Super Producer Mike WiLL Made-It LeBron Got Kendrick's Album Early ... Out Of Respect

4/16/2017 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of the biggest producers in rap says it's no accident LeBron James got Kendrick Lamar's album early ... telling TMZ Sports he's done the same thing for 'Bron ... out of respect for his hip-hop ear.

We got Mike WilLL Made-It out at LAX -- who produced some tracks on Kendrick's new collection -- and asked him how is it LeBron got his hands on it earlier in the week, when we all had to wait until Friday?

FYI -- we know this is true because LeBron posted a video listening to it ... rubbing it in our faces.

Mike told our guy LeBron is "a real fan of music" and a trusted ear ... that's why Kendrick laced him early, and why Mike did the same thing with his album, "Ransom."

Man, it's soooooo good to be LeBron.

Rudy Gay Welcome To The Squad, Lil Wayne ... But Jay's Still #1 Rapper At Roc Nation

EXCLUSIVE

Rudy Gay is taking Jay Z all the way in a lyrical battle of the Carters ... telling TMZ Sports even though Lil Wayne is part of the Roc Nation family now ... Hov is still the best lyricist down with the crew.

Tunechi recently announced he was joining Roc Nation (even though he's still under contract to Birdman) meaning he's now on the same team as Rudy, who's down with Roc Nation Sports.

We got Rudy out in L.A. and asked him if there's a new top rap dawg at the Roc now that Wayne is throwing his diamond up, and Gay does the smart thing ... he goes with the boss.

BTW ... Jay Z's real last name is Carter, so is Wayne's. That's why it's a battle of Carters. Get your hip-hop knowledge up.

'LHHNY' Star Mendeecees I'm No Drug Dealer! More Like a Mule

1/12/2017 4:37 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Mendeecees Harris is making an odd plea for a guy who's currently doing hard time for drug trafficking -- he's insisting he's NOT a drug dealer ... TMZ has learned.

Seems too little, too late, but the 'Love and Hip Hop NY' star -- who got 8 years in prison -- says federal prosecutors gave him the shaft during sentencing because they made it sound like he was dealing cocaine and heroin.

In docs obtained by TMZ ... Harris says he was merely "collecting drugs from one party and handing them to another." He says feds never even accused him of setting prices or having knowledge of the entire drug operation.

Translation: I was a small fry, and they know it.

Harris has been in the pen for one year, and he's fighting to get his sentence reduced.

'Basketball Wives' New Cast Revealed ... Dwyane Wade & Nick Young Won't Be Happy!

12/1/2016 2:45 PM PST
Exclusive Details

VH1's "Basketball Wives L.A." is cleaning house ... bringing in several new cast members including Evelyn Lozada, plus the infamous baby mamas to Nick Young and Dwyane Wade ... TMZ has learned.

Production sources tell us Keonna Green, who just had her 2nd kid with Nick, and Aja Metoyer ... who has a 3-year-old by Dwyane -- will join Shaunie O'Neal, Tami Roman and Jackie Christie for the next season.

Executive producer Shaunie definitely increased the drama with her new hires. Keonna made headlines when her pregnancy broke up Nick's engagement to Iggy Azalea. As for Aja, she hooked up with Dwyane when he was allegedly "on a break" from Gabrielle Union.

Nick and Dwyane probably won't watch, but we suspect their lawyers will.

Evelyn was an original cast member when 'BWLA' started in 2010, but left after the 5th season. She's also guest hosting on "The Real" next week.
