Lil Wayne just caught a major break in his legal war with Birdman ... a judge is forcing Baby to open his books to account for millions Weezy says he never saw.
Wayne had previously asked to see Birdman's financial records to find out how he burned through $70 mil they were supposed to split from a $100 million advance from Universal.
As we reported ... Birdman's lawyers say they've already forked over more than 20,000 pages of docs to Wayne's legal team. But Wayne's attorneys claim those are useless, and they want a full-on money trail.
Here's the problem for Birdman -- his peeps over at Cash Money weren't keeping very good track of those records ... for 2 whole years. Birdman's lawyer shrugged it off this way ... "It is what it is."
That excuse didn't fly with the judge ... who gave Birdman 30 days to find those records, or get the right person who knows where they are and get 'em to Wayne.
Sounds like he should've listened to Wayne, and held onto his receipts.
Lindsay Lohan did NOT pay the bills during her relationship with Egor Tarabasov -- in fact, it's exactly the opposite ... so say sources close to Egor.
Lindsay went on Russian TV and said Egor was a slacker who didn't contribute a dime to the relationship.
But Egor claims HE was the breadwinner between the two ... so much so he had to cover thousands of dollars in bills Lindsay racked up during the filming her latest movie.
Our source says Lindsay had access to Egor's credit card, and she used it often to snatch up gifts for herself and her entire fam. As for that emerald engagement ring ... we're told Lindsay picked it alright, but didn't pay for it. It was all Egor.
Egor's got a steady income through a bunch of investments, and even serves as director for a couple European firms ... so he's got cash to blow.
Brandon denies any involvement, and says the neighbor has the wrong guy. The neighbor clearly believes it's him though ... because in the docs she references Brandon's brother and Jagged Edge member, Brian Casey.
She also says "Jagged Edge" repeatedly in a YouTube video she posted of the alleged incident.One of the guys from Jagged Edge doesn't want the party outside his house, if the party involves a kid on a skateboard ... according to the kid's mom, who says the singer and his crew beat her down.
The woman is Brandon Casey's next door neighbor, and in court docs she says a fight erupted in her driveway when someone in Casey's house got pissed about her son skateboarding. The person apparently thought the kid was on Casey's property.
The neighbor says a heated argument got amped up when 6 people ran out of Casey's house and "began to pummel" her. She says her husband had to break up the brawl.
She went to court to request, and was granted, a restraining order. Casey must now stay 25 feet away from the neighbor and her family.
The woman says she's been staying at a hotel for fear of another attack.
Jose Fernandez was a man of the sea in the weeks before his tragic death.
The Marlins pitcher and some buddies fished and partied it up in the waters around Miami. One of the shots appears to be the same type of boat that crashed into a jetty Sunday morning ... killing Jose and 2 others on board.
The guys on the boat are called "J's Crew."
Authorities now say drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the fatal crash.
Once Kim Kardashian and Kanye Westsettle into their renovated Hidden Hills home ... they'll never have to leave, not even for a haircut or a movie.
The couple is a few months out from moving into their 5-acre compound. The unfinished business ... a last-minute decision to expand the master suite ... and clearly some major landscaping.
We're told the home will have a 2-story playroom, gigantic gym, basketball court, hair salon, full spa with facial and massage room, and a music studio for Kanye. There's even a FULL-SIZE movie theater with a Dolby sound system.
12:00 PM -- Authorities are saying there's no indication drugs or alcohol played a factor in the crash.The boat crash in which Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez died triggered a frantic rescue effort.
As we reported, Fernandez and 2 others were killed when the 32-foot vessel in which they were riding crashed into a jetty in Miami Beach.
Investigators now say the boat was roaring along the water at full speed.
You see the helicopters searching for bodies with the aid of spotlights.
