Disney Star

Sues Dad for Unger Games

He Blew My Cash On His GF

3/3/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0302-billy-unger-tmz-01The star of Disney's "Lab Rats" ... Billy Unger got fleeced by his own dad/manager, who used the cash to impress a chick ... according to a lawsuit filed by Billy.

In the docs ... Billy says his popager William Unger mishandled nearly $400K of his earnings last year. He also says his dad was gouging him for a 33.3% commission ... when the industry standard is between 10% and 20%.

Billy says his dad even siphoned away $120K to whisk away his GF on lavish vacations, and bankroll her living expenses. And it gets worse -- in the suit, Billy says his dad "despicably" took out a $1 million life insurance policy on him and made himself the sole beneficiary. 

Billy's asking a judge to order his dad to repay the missing money, plus damages.

For his part ... William Unger claims his son's accusations are "false and frivolous" -- and he blames the lawsuit on a "manipulative negative force in [Billy's] life whose sole focus is to administer pain." He added, "I love Billy with all my heart" ... and he wants to rebuild their relationship.

Wiz Khalifa

Shots Fired at Amber ...

'These Hos Are For Everybody'

3/2/2015 6:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wiz Khalifa just turned up the heat in his custody war with Amber Roseby dropping a verse that takes several direct shots at her ... or at least it sounds that way.

Wiz laid down the rhymes for a track with Juicy J, called "For Everybody" -- and on the song there are more than a few hints that point toward Amber being the inspiration.

Just a few of the gems:

- "Man, I fell in love with a stripper, funny thing is I fell back out of love quicker."

- "Bottles be turning these girls into thots, Instagram turning these wives into hos."

- "You all 'bout that money, that s**t that I throw. Just make sure you clean off that pole." 

There are many more ... give it a listen.

And if Amber's ears aren't already burning, there's this: The track was posted with a photo of Wiz and Juicy ... from Wiz and Amber's wedding.

CeeLo Green

Emotional and Humble with Homeless Vets

3/2/2015 2:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0302-cee-lo-green-court-TMZ-01CeeLo Green is getting the equivalent of straight As in his efforts to complete his court-ordered community service -- in other words ... he's the anti-Lohan.  

CeeLo was sentenced to 3 years probation and 360 hours of community service following his no contest plea to furnishing ecstasy to a woman he was on a date with back in 2012 -- and TMZ just obtained his latest report from his probation officer.

He's completed 151 hours of community service, and 31 hours of individual drug and alcohol therapy. According to the therapist ... CeeLo sometimes gets emotional when discussing the work he's done with homeless veterans living on L.A.'s Skid Row.

CeeLo was in court Monday for a progress hearing, and since he's been doing so well ... he was informed he would not have to attend any future hearings.  

The therapist also says he shows "genuine humbleness" whenever she asks him about his work on a new album ... which does NOT count toward his community service hours.

That's not always clear to some celebs.

Sylvester Stallone

Busts Up Brawl

On Set of 'Creed'

3/2/2015 1:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0302-sylvester-stallone-rocky-7-tmz-01Rocky's not taking any mess on his set -- Sylvester Stallone had to bust up a very real brawl during filming of the latest Rocky flick, "Creed" ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to production say things went ballistic in Aston, PA Monday when boxer/actor Tony Bellew -- who's playing "Pretty" Ricky -- dove out of the boxing ring, mid-scene, and began unloading on the guy playing his corner coach. It was NOT part of the scene.

Sly still has the eye of the tiger -- we're told the fight was broken up when he, and a few others, jumped in to pull the men apart.

It's not clear what prompted the fight, but we're told security threw everyone out. Unclear at this point, if anyone plans to press charges.update_graphic_red_bar2:10 PM PT -- A rep for the studio behind the movie tells us the incident never got physical. Multiple witnesses on the set tell us otherwise. 

Piers Morgan

I've Known Lupita's Dress Was Fake ...

Since Oscar Night!!

3/2/2015 4:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

030215_pierce_morgan_launch_v2It didn't take a fashion expert to know Lupita Nyong'o's stolen "pearl" dress was fake -- since Piers Morgan claims he knew it was bogus the second he saw it on Oscar night.

We got Morgan in NYC Monday ... and he says he rubbed elbows with the Oscar winner at the Vanity Fair party, and was close enough to realize the gown was all smoke and mirrors. Watch him explain why it fooled people without his keen eye. 

As for the theft of the dress originally believed to be worth over $150K ... well, he only sees one loser in all of this.

We'll hand it to Piers ... his take on the heist is entertaining, but it might be slightly off -- since it turns out Lupita attended the VF bash in a different gown ... a slinky gold number. 

Who knows? Maybe this one was really blue and black.

breaking news

0302-suge-knight-Getty-01Suge Knight says he's going blind from lack of medical care behind bars ... and he had to be hospitalized again.

Knight reportedly spoke on his own behalf Monday in court -- after he fired the lawyers handling his case -- and said he was receiving inadequate treatment in jail. Moments later he was taken to the hospital.

Sources tell us a doctor informed the rap mogul on Friday his eyesight was getting really bad. Suge reportedly shared that info in court before he was hospitalized.

As we previously reported ... Suge was taken to the hospital for a panic attack following a court appearance last month.  A few weeks later he missed one altogether after he was rushed to the hospital for injuries related to his shooting last summer.

Suge has been in jail since January when he was arrested for backing up his truck over two men ... one of whom died.

Brownstone Singer

Death by Wine Glass Was Freaky

But No Signs of a Crime

3/2/2015 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0302-charmayne-maxwell-INSTAGRAM-01R&B singer Charmayne Maxwell's death in her home appears to be an almost one in a million accident, and nothing sinister ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us detectives combed the scene where the ex-Brownstone singer fell on Friday evening -- and say all evidence points to her falling backward at the doorway between the house and the back patio ... while holding a wine glass.

We're told during the fall ... the wine glass shattered on the ground behind Maxwell's head, and when she landed shards of glass punctured the back of her neck in two places. We're told there was an injury to the back of her head, and it's possible she was knocked unconscious. 

TMZ broke the story ... Charmayne's husband Carsten Soulshock came home and found her bleeding around 9 PM Friday. We're told cops interviewed him and several other family members ... and say there's no history of domestic violence. They do not suspect foul play.

The one remaining mystery is what caused the fall -- and we're told one theory is she was intoxicated. The coroner now has her body, and will conduct an autopsy and toxicology test which could answer that question.

Leo DiCaprio & Rihanna

First Photo!!

Banging But It's a Little One-Sided

3/2/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0227_rihanna_leonardo_dicaprio_splash_SPLITRihanna and Leo DiCaprio should be a perfect match -- neither's into settling down with one person for too long -- but now that they're banging ... one of them is way more committed than the other.

We got pics of RiRi and Leo getting cozy recently at her birthday party -- which he helped organize -- and sources at the bash tell us one thing was clear ... Rihanna's the clingy one.

We're told Leo is affectionate enough -- they engaged in plenty of PDA -- but he could barely get a moment to himself. As one source put it, "she's the baddest bitch in the party, but she's following him everywhere."

We're told they've been hooking up for about 3 months, but it's still not exclusive -- more like they're each other's first choice. Not that anyone's crying for either of them.

breaking news

030215_jesse_holley_launchA former NFL player says he's found the ONE person who could beat Ronda Rousey in an MMA fight -- himself -- saying if the two got in the octagon, Rousey wouldn't stand a chance!!!

The man talking the smack is Jesse Holley -- who played WR for the Dallas Cowboys after winning a tryout with the team on Michael Irvin's 2009 reality show "4th and Long."

Holley -- who's 6'3", 215 pounds -- was on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas this morning ... when the gang began questioning if ANYONE will ever defeat the greatest female fighter in UFC history.

That's when Holley suggested ... himself. 

Holley says if he had 8 weeks to train ... he's 100% confident he'd squish her like a bug.

FYI -- Cat Zingano was also 100% confident ... and we all know how that went.
