Robin Thicke Paula Patton Cries Technical Foul In Custody War

2/21/2017 10:58 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-paula-patton-robin-thicke-TMZ-01Robin Thicke has just lost his main lawyer in his custody war with Paula Patton, because a lawyer who worked in the firm that once represented Paula now works at the firm that represents Robin.

Robin has been represented by attorney Larry Ginsberg, a partner at Harris, Ginsberg. A law firm that once represented Paula in the custody fight employed a lawyer who jumped ship and moved over to Harris, Ginsberg.

During a court hearing Tuesday, Larry Ginsberg made it clear ... the lawyer in question has no involvement in the Patton/Thicke case, but the judge felt there was always the chance of water cooler talk so Ginsberg is now off the case.

We're told Robin still has legal representation from other firms in a war that continues to rage.

Alex Trebek Drops Bars on 'Jeopardy!' I'll Take 'Let's Rap' For $200

2/21/2017 8:51 AM PST

It's debatable, but Alex Trebek might've just announced the best "Jeopardy!" category of his career ... at the expense of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and Kanye West.

The category was "Let's Rap, Kids" and Trebek had to repeat lyrics from the rappers' hits. It's hilarious ... especially when he had to drop Desiigner's banger, "Panda."

Alex even gets in a Kanye jab too. New rap beef brewing? Trebek's diss track would kill.

Tom Brady QB's Camp Made the Call On $500k Jersey Value ... Cops Say

2/21/2017 8:33 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-tom-brady-getty-01

Tom Brady -- or someone in his camp -- came up with the $500,000 value for the QB's missing Super Bowl jersey ... this according to the Houston PD. 

TMZ Sports spoke with an HPD rep who tells us the $500k value listed on the police report was NOT determined by some fancy police property assessor ... it's the complainant who offers up the number.

In this case, the complainant on the report is Tom Brady ... and a Houston PD spokesperson tells us it was either Tom "or one of his people" who gave the $500k figure.

We're told if/when someone is arrested, the PD will kick the case over to the DA’s office which will work on determining its real worth.

Cops also note that if Brady filed an insurance claim, the insurance company would also tap their own people to assess the value.

For the record, the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show on FS1 spoke with Rick Harrison from "Pawn Stars" who said the value is closer to $200k.

Inflategate, anyone?

Tom Brady Police Report Missing Jersey Valued at $500,000!

2/21/2017 6:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-tom-brady-launch-getty-03

Tom Brady's Super Bowl jersey is still missing and presumed stolen, so say Houston cops, and it's valued at at HALF A MILLION BUCKS ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

The document lists the victim as 39-year-old Tom Brady -- a 6'4", 225 pound white male whose missing property is described as a "NFL New England Patriots Football Jersey" ... valued at $500k. 

Of course, Brady famously noticed his jersey went M.I.A. while in the Pats locker room moments after beating the ATL Falcons at Super Bowl LI. Police confirm the case is still open with no new developments.

One interesting note ... the case is being investigated by a unit called Major Offenders - Police Impersona/Swindle.

Cops are listing the crime as a 1st degree felony.

It seems the Houston PD may be rubbing salt in the wounds of Falcons fans, because the report states Brady noticed his jersey was missing "shortly after winning the game."

EXCLUSIVE

Clifton Powell is trying to put an old rape allegation behind him, but says the case has cost him dearly ... and now he's trying to mend fences in Hollywood.

We got the "Ray" and "Next Friday" actor at LAX, where he told us the 4-year-old civil rape case against him has been thrown out ... despite tremendous collateral damage.

Clifton gets pretty emotional here recounting the case, and the roles it cost him -- but was thankful for media outlets that "got it right." He also hints at a lawsuit with those that didn't.

Donald Trump Meeting Set with Kasich The Question, Who Blinked?

2/21/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0220-donald-trump-john-kasich-tmzDonald Trump will sit down with John Kasich in the Oval Office Friday, but there's a dispute over who requested the meeting.

Kasich has been MIA in Trump's life since the Republican National Convention in July and refused to support him. Kasich's people say he ended up writing in John McCain for president.

Our Trump sources say it was Kasich who requested Friday's meeting, but our Kasich sources dispute that and say Trump wanted the sit-down.

Our Kasich sources also say the governor is in the dark on the purpose of the meeting ... Trump isn't saying. Trump's people say, "There's no agenda. It's just to catch up."
