'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.

DeRay Davis on Tamar Braxton Yeah, We Argued ... But I Never Said I'd Sic My Sisters!

9/10/2017 11:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DeRay Davis has a funny way of explaining his on-set blow up with Tamar Braxton last week ... which involves board games, family, and only a partial denial.

We got the comedian Saturday night at Bootsy Bellows in WeHo, where we asked about his beef with Tamar on the set of "Hip Hop Squares" ... where he jokingly accused her of lip-syncing, and eventually threatened to get his sisters to beat her ass after an argument.

DeRay says the story's BS -- well, only part of it actually. He admits he and Tamar got into a spat, but that's only because they were competing ... and Tamar's a cheater, according to him. He denies threatening to sic any of his six sisters on her.

Dude had to cut the story short, though ... for obvious reasons.

Tamar Braxton Blows Up After Lip-Sync Accusation

9/8/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tamar Braxton and comedian DeRay Davis got into an explosive argument over lip-sync trash talk and threats he'd unleash his sisters on Tamar to open up a can of ass whoopin'. 

Production sources tell TMZ ... the altercation went down Wednesday during filming of VH1's "Hip Hop Squares."

DeRay accused Tamar of lip-syncing, as a joke. She wasn't in earshot but noticed others laughing ... prompting her to ask what was so funny.

We're told Lil Mama relayed the joke to Tamar, and that's when she went off ... getting all up in DeRay's grill, but he wasn't having it. We're told DeRay barked back he didn't care who Tamar was or who her sisters were ... because he'd get HIS sisters to beat her ass.

For what it's worth ... Tamar was accused of lip-syncing her BET performance back in June.

They were eventually separated and filming resumed. No lingering beef, though. We're told Tamar and DeRay hashed things out after the show, which BTW returns Sept. 25 at 9/8c.

We reached out to DeRay and Tamar's camps ... so far no word back.

Mike Vick Hit With Sex Ban Over Kaepernick Afro Comments

8/9/2017 12:32 PM PDT
Breaking News

Mike Vick is officially on a sex time out -- with his wife formally pulling booty privileges over his stupid comments about Colin Kaepernick's afro.

Kijafa Vick called out the QB on their reality show, "Baller Wives" -- saying she was sick of getting attacked on social media over the bad advice Mike dished out last month on FS1. 

"Why does he have to change his hair to get a job?" Kijafa asked. 

"I don’t know, Kijafa – I was wrong."

Mike tried to explain himself ... "I shouldn’t have said what I said. No one in any race should be stereotyped based on the way they look, dress, act -- but that’s the reality of the world we live in."

Kijafa says the drama surrounding the comments makes her "relive a part of our life that I want to put in the past" ... a clear reference to the dog fighting scandal

In the end, Vick apologized to his wife -- but still, no booty. 

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.

Lil Uzi Vert I Dropped $220k to Put Marilyn Manson Around My Neck

4/17/2017 9:32 AM PDT
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.

Exclusive Details

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.

Tyga Fan Indignant Look at What I've Gone Through!!!

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.

Migos 'Bad and Boujee' is for Kids ... Coachella's Youngest Spits

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.
