EXCLUSIVE

Trey Songz is being accused of striking a woman he was partying with during NBA All-Star weekend ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us the woman filed a police report claiming Trey hit her in the face Saturday night while they were attending a Hollywood Hills party.

She claims Trey got upset because she was talking to another man, and hit her during an argument. We're told she left the party on her own to go to a hospital, and talked to police soon afterward. We're told her injuries were minor.

The case will be reviewed by the L.A. City Attorney to determine if Songz will be charged. We've reached out to his reps ... so far, no word back.

The singer was sued in December for allegedly smacking a phone out of a woman's hand in a Philly strip club.

Breaking News

"Teen Mom 2" cast member David Eason's officially been given the boot from the hit show ... TMZ has learned.

Jenelle Evans' husband came under fire for an anti-LGBTQ rant online Monday, and now MTV has severed ties. According to a network spokesperson ... Eason's comments do not reflect its views, and "with six weeks left of production ... effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him."

Evans' co-star Kailyn Lowry told TMZ earlier Tuesday that she was disgusted and disappointed by Eason's comments ... and believed he should be kicked off the show.

In her husband's defense, Jenelle said she and David have gay friends and insisted he doesn't hate the LGBTQ community. She also apologized.

Looks like it wasn't enough ... MTV honchos agreed with Kailyn.

Blac Chyna Ex-BF Failed on Sex Tape, Too ... The 'Head Dr.' Weighs In

2/21/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna's not the only one who blew it with her sex tape performance -- her ex-BF's lazy attitude is just as much to blame ... according to the sex expert, the "Head Doctor."

Chyna's been slammed online since the video with Mechie leaked, with critics calling her effort uninspired and boring. That's an unfair review though, if you ask Ms. Preasha -- aka "The Head Doctor" -- and we did. She's pointing the finger at Mechie for a lack of effort.

Preasha, who presents workshops with her company, Legendary Oral, says good fellatio takes 2 -- people that is -- and Mechie didn't hold up his end.

The good doc graded BC and Mechie, and it it ain't a glowing review for either of them.

Aldon Smith I Can't Afford Child Support Payments ... Without NFL Job

2/21/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

NFL superstar Aldon Smith is begging a judge to drastically reduce his child support obligations immediately ... claiming he can't keep up the high payments while suspended by the league. 

28-year-old Smith hasn't played a snap in the NFL since 2015 -- when he was suspended for a hit and run arrest in which cops say he was also drunk. Smith says he's currently awaiting reinstatement. 

The issue ... back in 2013, Smith was ordered to pay $9,007 per month in child support to his baby mama for their now 5-year-old son. 

He has since fallen behind almost $79,000 in payments -- and he's concerned it's only going to get worse unless the judge cuts him a break. 

Smith says, at the time the child support amount was determined, he was making $3 million per year ($250k per month) ... so he could easily afford the payments. But things have changed ... 

"I have had no income since November 2015," Smith states in court docs obtained by TMZ Sports ... "I have done my best to stay current, but without an income I have fallen behind."

One source connected to the case tell TMZ Sports ... Smith is full of crap and continues to live a lavish lifestyle while blowing off child support.

It's possible Smith could be reinstated in the next couple of months -- which would definitely be a factor since the case is due back in court in May.

Exclusive Details

Just when you thought the sale of the "Dumb and Dumber" mini bike couldn't possibly be any dumber, it was.

The hog featured in the classic 1994 comedy, and used to get Lloyd and Harry to Aspen ... hauled in $50,000 for the Houston man who sold it on eBay to fortify his kid's college fund. Considering the opening bid was $8,500 ... nice work, Dad.

The new owner is Todd Lyons from New York, who tells us one of his friends told him he wanted to bid on it, but his wife lowered the boom. Todd had no one dissuading him, so he went for it. Three cheers for bachelorhood!

As we reported ... the mini bike was one of 2 used in the film, specifically in all the close-up riding scenes with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels.

Todd tells us he was 13 when he first saw the flick with his buddy, so he's thrilled to own a piece of it ... which he will proudly display on his wall.

Kendrick Lamar, SZA Sued by Artist You Jacked My Work for 'Black Panther' Vid!!!

2/20/2018 5:56 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kendrick Lamar and SZA ripped off an artist by taking her famed artwork and using it to promote the soundtrack for "Black Panther" ... according to a new suit.

Lina Iris Viktor claims her fine art titled "Constellations I," "Constellations II" and "Constellations III" are being used in the official music video for the musicians' song "All the Stars" ... despite her refusing permission.

The artist claims reps for the movie contacted her twice -- in 2016 and as recently as January -- asking her to lend her work to the movie or create new work for it ... but she said no. According to the docs, they did it anyway, which she calls "both an egregious violation of federal law and an affront to the artist, her livelihood, her legacy and to artists everywhere."

Viktor claims the vid tries to mimic the "unique look and feel" of her works, but also uses "specific copyrightable elements" such as "stylized motifs of mythical animals, gilded geometric forms on a black background, and distinctively textured areas and patterns."

In an added twist of irony ... Viktor says the movie promotes themes of black and female empowerment, yet ignored her wishes ... and she's a black, African woman.

She's suing for damages and she wants an injunction prohibiting Kendrick and SZA from using her artwork to promote the soundtrack.

Kevin Hart I Didn't Pay at Epic Comedians Dinner But, I'll Tell You Who Did

2/20/2018 5:14 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Hart says he's got a foolproof plan to avoid picking up the check at epic dinners like the one he had with Eddie Murphy and Dave Chappelle -- and he also revealed who DID pay.

We got Kev Tuesday leaving the gym in Encino, and had to ask about the all-star comedy summit he attended Monday night at Mastro's Steakhouse -- Eddie, Dave, Chris Rock, Chris Tucker ... and Usher and Dwyane Wade, too. 

Kevin explained why the boss move is offering to pick up the check before anyone else does -- and it's not because you WANT to pay. It's a good tip. Pun fully intended.

But best of all ... he told us which comedy legend threw down his Black Card (we're guessing) to cover the meal.  We got most of the crew right after the meal, when they were all in great spirits, and now we know why -- the person who paid was NOT with them.

Nikolas Cruz Judge to Determine If State Pays Lawyers' Fees

2/20/2018 3:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nikolas Cruz is getting a second look by a judge to determine if he's eligible for a lawyer paid for by the State of Florida.

The Broward County Public Defender's Office has just filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, noting that a probate case has just been opened in his mother's death. The Public Defender's Office notes, although Cruz has already been found indigent by the court clerk and therefore eligible for a free lawyer, there may be funds from his mother's estate or a possible life insurance policy that would disqualify him.

The Public Defender wants the judge to review the various financials to determine if he's still eligible for a court-appointed lawyer.

Tavis Smiley Sues PBS Fired Me Over 'Trumped Up' Sexual Harassment Claims

2/20/2018 3:25 PM PST
Breaking News

Tavis Smiley says PBS firing him wasn't just about sexual harassment allegations ... he now claims it was racial, and it's costing him millions upon millions of dollars.

Smiley filed a lawsuit against his former network -- which aired his talk show for 14 years -- claiming the sexual harassment allegations against him were "trumped up." Immediately after Smiley was suspended in mid December, he admitted to having relationships with coworkers ... but insisted they were all consensual. He was fired later that month.

In his lawsuit, first reported by the Washington Post, Smiley says there was racial tension at PBS. He claims network honchos "hassled Mr. Smiley when he had African American guests who espoused controversial positions, and effectively tried to stop any such guests from appearing."

Smiley also says in the docs ... his personal production company has been hemorrhaging "multiple millions of dollars" since he got fired, and he's been forced to lay off roughly 20 employees.

PBS calls Smiley's lawsuit a "meritless" attempt to distract the public from his "pattern of sexual misconduct." Jennifer Rankin Byrne, Communications VP for PBS, also reiterated an independent law firm's investigation found Smiley had "multiple sexual encounters with subordinates over many years."

Byrne says that's why Smiley was ultimately fired and it's "ridiculous and false" for him to claim it was about anything else.
