EXCLUSIVE

0329-post-malone-truck

Post Malone got an old Ford Explorer swagged out, and the sick job upped the formerly beat-up SUV's value by at least $73,000!

Sources connected to the makeover tell us Post had the idea to customize a '92 Explorer ... so he bought one for $1700, and sent it over to West Coast Customs to make it happen.

We're told it took 6-8 weeks to add new lambo-style doors, candy custom body paint, 26" wheels and tires with spinner rims. Post calls it his "Texas Slab" to honor his Houston roots.

Fun Fact: "Slab" stands for vehicles that are slow, low and banging.

The new whip will definitely be banging ... based on the massive speakers WCC installed.

Post's baby will be featured on an upcoming episode of the reality show "Inside West Coast Customs" on Velocity.

Adult Swim Sued Thou Hath Jacked My 'Black Jesus'

3/29/2017 6:58 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0329_black_jesus_cartoon_network"Black Jesus" on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim is an impostor of the original black Jesus -- the one created by an author in 1999 (not the Bethlehem one) ... according to a new suit.

New York author Saint Solomon says "Black Jesus" -- the live action comedy on TV -- picks up where his short story titled "Thank You, Jesus" left off. He says the TV character is just like the protagonist in his story -- black, homeless, and named Jesus.

In his lawsuit, Solomon says his story ends with his Jesus being kicked out of the house to go live on the streets, and he believes episode 1 of "Black Jesus" picks up the tale 15 years later.

According to the docs ... there are other similarities, like the fact TV Black Jesus has a friend who is always trying to get rich quick, just like in the short story. And both Black Jesuses dress the same, curse a lot and drink booze.

Can we get an Amen?

Solomon's suing Adult Swim for ripping off his idea ... and wants more than $75 million to make it right.

Tyga Child Support Whaat? Can't Hear You Over My Ferrari!

3/29/2017 5:53 PM PDT

Tyga laughed off Blac Chyna's accusations he's skipping out on child support payments, as he sped off in a Ferrari ... while shopping in Bev Hills. 

Yeah, this clip is dripping with irony ... Tyga was leaving Barney's NY when we asked about BC's rant, where she called him a bitch for not paying and talking behind her back.

He says a lot here, even if his mouth isn't moving that much.

As for the yellow 'Rari -- we'll see if it works out better than his red one.

'Dance Moms' Cast Welcome Aboard, Cheryl Burke! ... Oh, Screw Abby BTW

3/29/2017 2:42 PM PDT

The moms of "Dance Moms" are absolutely thrilled with their new host, Cheryl Burke, and equally excited to throw dirt on Abby Lee Miller's metaphorical grave.

The longtime "Dancing with the Stars" pro showed up at 8 Count Dance Academy in L.A. to start working with her new students. She played it coy when paps compared her to Abby.

The moms, on the other hand, couldn't wait to blab about ditching Abby and upgrading -- in their eyes -- to Cheryl.

Damn. Body's not even cold.

Keshia Knight Pulliam Divorce Ed's GF Asked About Miscarriage Drugs ... Friend Testifies

3/29/2017 1:34 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0329-ed-hartwell-keshia-knight-pulliam-getty-01A friend of Keshia Knight Pulliam's estranged husband says Ed Hartwell's girlfriend made an ominous request about something to "cause a miscarriage" during Keshia's pregnancy.

The friend, Damia Ward-Henley, made the revelation in new court docs filed by Keshia in her divorce case. Damia describes herself as a friend of Ed and Tonya Carroll ... who she says Ed started dating while he was still married to Keshia. According to the docs, Damia says Tonya found out Keshia was pregnant in June 2016, and was very upset because she wanted Ed to leave Keshia.

In the docs, Damia says Tonya told her "she wanted to get something that would cause someone to have a miscarriage." Damia says she shot down the request and told Tonya and Ed to break off their adulterous relationship.

Keshia also filed docs saying she's worried Ed -- an ex-NFL player -- is unfit to care for their 2-month-old daughter because she's seen him take OxyContin. She says Ed testified in a lawsuit with the NFL that he's suffering severe physical and mental problems, and needs to take many drugs to cope.

She wants a court-appointed guardian to evaluate his parental fitness.

Katherine Jackson Flies Back to U.S. for Courtroom Showdown with Nephew

3/29/2017 12:47 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0328_katherine_jackson_tmzKatherine Jackson hopped a flight from London to L.A. to make sure she's in court for her elder abuse case against Trent Jackson ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the Jacksons tell us Katherine jetted back because the judge has said her lawsuit against Trent -- her nephew and longtime caretaker -- would be thrown out of court if she wasn't present to testify. A hearing is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

We're told Trent believes Katherine jetted back, ending her nearly 2 month stay with Janet Jackson, because Jermaine Jackson and other siblings are in her ear ... pumping her up to go full bore against Trent in court.

However, sources connected to Trent tell us he's ready and willing to walk away, literally, if that's what Katherine wants -- even though he's done nothing but care for her for years. That's the odd twist.

If he's prepared to wave the white flag, why go to war in court? We're told Trent thinks some of Katherine's children are pushing her to go forward because they believe it will help them gain control of the estate.

Doesn't really make sense, but something's clearly up for Katherine to rush back to L.A. for court.

EXCLUSIVE

0329-michella-kwan-clay-pell-tmz-03Michelle Kwan's marriage is on ice, because her husband has just filed for divorce.

According to legal docs, Clay Pell cites irreconcilable differences for the breakdown of his marriage to the 36-year-old, 5-time world champion figure skater and 2-time Olympic medalist.  

Clay is mum on spousal support but he does want her to foot the bills from his lawyer.

They have no kids so if there's legal beef, it will be over property.

Tomi Lahren I Wanna Keep My Facebook Fans! But TheBlaze Ain't Budging

3/29/2017 10:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0329-tomi-lahren-the-blaze-tmzTomi Lahren has millions on the line in her negotiations to exit TheBlaze ... as in Facebook followers.

Sources familiar with the negotiations between Tomi and Blaze brass tell us she's adamant about keeping her 4.2 million FB fans, but the company has other ideas.

Fact is ... TheBlaze owns her Facebook page ... and honchos have flexed their muscles by cutting off access to Tomi and her team.

There hasn't been a single post since Tomi and Glenn Beck butted heads over her announcing on "The View" she was pro-choice.

We're told Tomi believes she's more marketable if she brings her Facebook followers to her next gig. As we reported, she has 6 months left on her contract and she's currently negotiating a severance package which includes a payout and a possible time out where she can't work anywhere else.

We're told both sides are talking and they will probably reach some resolution by the end of the week. The Facebook followers may get horse traded as part of the package.

EXCLUSIVE

The only place Christina and Tarek El Moussa are going is back to flipping houses for their hit TV show -- at least that's their plan ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the show tell us Christina and Tarek are currently in talks with HGTV for a new season ... and they want to keep the production rolling, despite their divorce.

We're told reports "Flip or Flop" is dead in the water after season 7 just aren't true, and Christina isn't shopping around her own show either. The ratings are holding strong, after all.

Sources also tell us the former couple is excited for the attention the spin-offs will bring to their OG version, and that's why they're actively negotiating. 

Bottom line ... ball's in HGTV's court. So far, the network isn't commenting on season 8.

Blac Chyna to Tyga No Child Support? You're a Bitch!

3/29/2017 8:06 AM PDT

0329-blac-chyna-tyga-tmz-01Blac Chyna's calling out Tyga for allegedly failing to pay child support, and for dragging the Kardashians into the middle of their financial battle.

Chyna unloaded on her baby daddy early Wednesday morning, saying ... "It's funny now to me !!! But when Tyga and side n**** kicked me out !!! And they wanted to see me fail ! lol And 2 grind from the dirt !!!!! No child support!"

Her Snapchat attack on Tyga was filled with seemingly random references -- some of it's hard to decipher -- but her overall point is clear: PAY ME, BITCH! She also wants "Jenny," the babysitter, to get paid.

BC got personal too -- "So go tell Kylie , and Rob ! About our son Account ! Cause that's the only reason I'm contacting ur f** ass!"

Tyga not paying people is nothing new, but Chyna ain't settling for the status quo ... obviously.
