Tommy Lee Brandon's On My Wedding Guest List But, He'll Probably No-Show

6/21/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tommy Lee is getting married on Valentine's Day 2019 and wants everyone to feel the love, even his estranged son, Brandon, who he still wants at his wedding.

Sources close to Tommy tell us he's planning on sending an invite to his eldest despite their drama over Father's Day. Y'know, Tommy called his sons "a**holes" and said they didn't value things ... then Brandon called Tommy an absentee father, and posted a vid of Tommy knocked out in March after their fight.

We're told Tommy's hoping time heals all wounds, with his wedding to Brittany Furlan still months away.

Our sources say Tommy thought he and Brandon put the KO behind them when he decided not to press charges. We're told Tommy only resorted to airing out their feud on social media because Brandon's blocked his number and emails. 

All that said, we're told Tommy still tells friends he loves Brandon, and wants him at the wedding.

Kobe Bryant Denied By Oscar Academy ... You Don't Have a Body Of Work!

6/21/2018 6:33 AM PDT
Breaking News

Kobe Bryant just got rejected at the rim by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences -- which just denied membership to the Mamba ... claiming he doesn't have a good enough body of work. 

You know what he does have? AN OSCAR!!!!

Kobe won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short for "Dear Basketball" -- which was based off a retirement letter he published on The Players' Tribune back in 2015. 

Kobe is credited as the executive producer and writer of the film. 

Worth noting, Oscar winners are automatically considered for membership -- but it's not a shoe-in. The board votes on who gets membership based on a specific criteria. 

One of the items on the checklist for producers -- "have the equivalent of 2 producer screen credits and perform the majority of the functions of a producer on theatrical feature films of the caliber which in the opinion of the executive committee reflect the high standards of the Academy."

For the record, Kobe produced the docu-series 'Muse' -- but it doesn't appear that would qualify under the Academy's standards because it was produced for TV. 

Still, there are some people who believe the membership denial is due to Kobe's controversial past and the rise of the #MeToo movement. 

Despite the fact Kobe was cheered on by the Academy when he won at the Oscars, there has been serious blowback. 

So, is this really about Kobe's resume ... or bad P.R.?

6/21/2018 6:54 AM PDT

Blac Chyna is back on the market and letting everyone know by hitting up her BFF, Amber Rose, for a night on the town.

Amber and Chyna were like a dynamic duo leaving Bootsy Bellows Wednesday night in WeHo but, instead of wearing capes and fighting off bad guys, they looked like they were on a manhunt.

Chyna dumped her recent BF, YBN Almighty Jay, about a week ago after several months of dating because she caught him flirting with other women and thought it was shady. Amber confirmed her breakup with rapper 21 Savage in March.

While Chyna doesn't seem like she's taking a breather before finding herself a new man, there's always a chance she'll get back together with Rob Kardashian. LOL. Yeah, right ... and Chyna's thoughts exactly when we asked her the same thing.

EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid is under investigation for battery after allegedly beating up a photographer outside Bev Hills hot spot, Mastro's Steakhouse ... TMZ has learned.

Rich was leaving Mastro's last week with a female friend, and jogged out the front door to a waiting car. Our sources tell us a photog asked Rich if that's how he ran from Lil Uzi -- with whom Rich has had beef.

We're told Rich beelined it to the photog and got into a heated argument -- then things got physical, with Rich allegedly punching the photog and hitting his camera. His female friend allegedly grabbed the camera when they bolted ... and law enforcement sources tell us the friend is under investigation ... for theft.

Of course, Rich's week got worse early Friday morning. TMZ broke the story ... he and his gf, Tori Brixx, were attacked during a home invasion robbery

XXXTentacion's Murder Detectives Key on Rapper Soldier Kidd's Gun Pic

6/21/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

5:30 AM PT -- Police have arrested Dedrick D. Williams for the murder of XXXTentacion. Broward County Sheriff's Dept. took Williams into custody Wednesday evening.

Investigators working on XXXTentacion's murder seem to be homing in on a Florida rapper who posted a pic of himself packing heat Monday, not far from the crime scene.

Soldier Kidd's been widely accused online of having possible involvement in XXX's shooting death -- mostly due to a photo of himself at Hook Fish & Chicken restaurant, which is 7 minutes from where X was killed.

In the pic, you clearly see a handgun in Kidd's lap, right next to his food. It was posted within an hour of X's shooting.

We're told detectives went to Hook Fish & Chicken late Monday to collect surveillance footage -- specifically of the time Soldier Kidd was there.

There's more -- according to the dispatch audio from the shooting, one of the 2 armed men was wearing a red mask. Kidd shared a photo of himself and a friend with a red mask in the front seat of his car.

The "Triple X" isn't necessarily a reference to XXXTentacion ... since Kidd recorded a mixtape with that title.

We're told cops have also collected security footage from the motorcycle shop where the shooting went down. Police haven't named any suspects, and Soldier Kidd has denied any involvement.

As we reported ... XXXTentacion was shot in the neck during an alleged robbery, and died instantly, according to a witness on the scene.

'Lopez' Star Ray Diaz Busted for Domestic Violence

6/21/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Actor Ray Diaz -- who starred alongside George Lopez for one season on "Lopez" -- allegedly assaulted his GF and repeatedly prevented her from calling for help.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Diaz and his GF got into an argument that turned physical earlier this month at his Hollywood apartment. Diaz allegedly grabbed and pulled her so violently, she suffered neck scratches and bruising on her leg.

Our sources say Ray's gf tried to call 911, but he stopped her by grabbing the phone. That's when she made a last ditch effort -- and a pretty smart one -- by commanding Alexa to dial 911 for her. Unfortunately, we're told Ray unplugged the device.

The woman filed a police report 2 days later, and cops photographed her alleged injuries. Ray -- who appeared on "Celebrity Family Feud" with George and Oscar De La Hoya -- was arrested for domestic violence. He's out now on $50k bail.

We've reached out to Ray's camp but, so far, no word back.

Kyrie Irving Date Night with Chantel Jeffries ... Bieber's Ex-GF

6/21/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Seems Kyrie Irving and Chantel Jeffries really are a thing -- 'cause the two were spotted on a movie date together on Monday ... and we're told they looked like a couple. 

The NBA star and Justin Bieber's ex-girlfriend took in a flick at the iPic in Westwood, CA -- "Incredibles 2" -- and they held hands on the way out of the place. 

By the way, the iPic is a seriously fancy joint -- it's got a full wait staff, bar and kitchen menu and they serve you in your seat while you're watching the movie! 

The two were reportedly spotted in New York earlier this month -- but it's unclear if they were together or just hanging out. 

Jeffries -- a DJ -- has been linked to a bunch of stars, including The Weeknd and DeSean Jackson. She was also famously in the car when Bieber was arrested for his DUI back in 2014. 

Irving dated Kehlani back in the day -- but recently came out and said they're still good friends.

6/20/2018 6:41 PM PDT

Pete Davidson is clearly over the moon to be engaged to Ariana Grande -- and he let Jimmy Fallon know it.

Davidson was on 'The Tonight Show' Wednesday and was asked straight-up about his engagement. Pete held nothing back, saying "it's f***in' lit."

It's the first time either Pete or Ariana has spoken publicly about their engagement ... and, given the way Pete opened up, we're guessing it won't be the last.

As we reported ... Pete plunked down nearly $100k on a ring for Ariana after only dating for a few weeks, and the two moved in together into a $16 mil NYC apartment over the weekend.

EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna is fed up with YBN Almighty Jay's shady ways ... and that's why she dumped his ass.

Sources close to Blac Chyna tell TMZ ... she felt disrespected because the 18-year-old rapper was slipping into a few girls' DMs. She also claims he was hanging out with several chicks after performances. Did we mention he's 18?

On top of that, we're told BC and YBN got into lots of arguments lately. We're told that -- along with his wandering eye -- is why Chyna broke off the relationship about a week ago.

And there's this ... our Chyna sources say she thinks YBN knocked up a chick too. A source close to Jay tells us there's no confirmation yet that he's got a kid on the way.

EXCLUSIVE

Tyga pulled a double-cross in Dubai ... according to the agent who forked out good dough to get the rapper to appear there.

In the suit, the agent says he booked Tyga to perform at Club White back in April and a couple other venues in United Arab Emirates. The agent says Tyga got $120k plus $21k in airline tickets for him and his entourage.

According to the suit, however, Tyga was working with a rival club. The agent says Tyga didn't even try to hide it and, in fact, told them ... "White should give me an offer I can't refuse."

Stop us if you've heard this before ... the agent says Tyga never paid his debt.
