Chris Brown & Karrueche BET Made Sure to Keep Them Apart During Award Show

6/26/2017 12:58 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The BET Awards made special plans to accommodate Karrueche Tran's restraining order against Chris Brown ... even though he was scheduled to perform and she was a presenter. 

Production sources tell TMZ ... Karrueche was given a heads-up by BET producers that Chris would be performing Sunday night. When he took the stage, producers moved her to a holding room to ensure Chris never got within 100 yards of Karrueche, as the court order requires.

We're told she did not watch Chris's performance while in the holding room. Also, Chris never sat in the audience -- he was only backstage, and he and Karrueche never crossed paths. 

We're told BET invited her almost 2 months ago to present an award, and she agreed so she could promote her show, "Claws." Remember, she was smack in the middle of her case against Chris at that time ... which included allegations he'd made violent threats.

It seemed odd she chose to be at the same event as him, but it's now clear BET went out of its way to address any concerns Karrueche might have -- and to ensure Chris didn't violate the protective order.

Of course, none of that prevented her new bf Quavo, and his Migos crew, from squaring off with Chris at an after-party. 

Ice Cube's Big3 League First Games Brought Big Celebs

6/26/2017 12:32 PM PDT

Ice Cube's BIG3 league kicked off this weekend with its first games ... and with them came a gaggle of big-time A-listers to watch.

Cube held his first games Sunday in front of 15k fans at the Barclays Center in NYC, and besides the stars on the court, there were a ton of others in the stands. They included Whoopi Goldberg, LL Cool J, James Harden, Jalen Rose, Lou Williams, Paul Pierce, D'Angelo Russell, Naturi NaughtonFabolous, Michael Rapaport and others -- most of whom got some shots in with Cube ... photos, that is. 

The BIG3 league rolls on through the summer, and is scheduled to conclude with a championship game at the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas. Unless Floyd and Conor have something to say about it.

The games air tonight on FS1.

BET Celeb Hoops Game Soulja Boy Benched Due to Chris Brown Beef

6/26/2017 10:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Soulja Boy is second rate compared to Chris Brown ... at least to BET, which chose Chris over Soulja for Saturday's Celebrity Basketball Game.

Sources close to Soulja tell us a BET rep reached out to his manager, Miami Mike, Friday ... one day before the sold-out event, and asked him not to come because of security concerns. Everyone knows Chris and Soulja don't like each other ... there have been multiple violent threats between them.

Still, Soulja was scheduled to appear, and his face was even on promo posters.

We're told Soulja's camp tried to reassure BET there'd be no problems, but execs didn't buy it ... and cut him from the game. Chris not only showed as scheduled, but earned co-MVP honors.

Soulja, on the other hand, had to settle for BET compensating him for travel expenses.

EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are calling themselves "Dad + Mom" -- but DON'T FREAK OUT ... they're not preggo!!!

The reality star posted some pics from her surprise 33rd bday party from over the weekend -- including an image of her and TT kissing with the caption, "Dad + Mom."

Khloe has recently talked about having kids with Tristan on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" -- saying, "He wants to have about five or six kids with me and that’s lovely. We could start at one and we could grow from there."

We reached out to sources connected to the couple to find out what's going down in KK's uterus -- but everyone says "Dad + Mom" are just lovey dovey nicknames ... nothing more.

Future & His Daughter For $3k a Piece ... We'll Keep the Masks On, Thanks

6/26/2017 11:09 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Future and his daughter weren't about to take their masks off at the BET Awards 'cause they cost a damn fortune to make.

You might have noticed Future and his little girl, Londyn, rocking Bane-like masks Sunday on the red carpet, and even during the rapper's performance at the show. Well, the hardware didn't come cheap ... try about $9,000 for 3 of 'em.

Sources with direct knowledge tell us Future's camp hired designers Marianna Harutunian and Xtina Milani to create 3 unique masks for Future and Londyn.

We're told Future dropped between $2,500 to $3,000 per mask -- all of which were made with brass frames and Swarovski crystals. Londyn rocked rose gold brass with gold crystals. Future had one for arrivals and another for his performance ... both with clear, black and orange crystals.

They took about a week and a half to make. Clearly, Future's was designed so he could rap through it.

Beyonce and Jay-Z's twins are out of the hospital and at home ... and the home is a ridiculous Malibu estate ... TMZ has confirmed.

We're told they will be spending the summer at the estate, and they're still looking for a permanent L.A. home.

New van trouble for Rich Homie Quan, and this time he's the one filing a police report after someone broke into his tour van to jack up to $2k worth of stuff.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... RHQ's Savana Explorer van got rolled early Sunday morning ... while he was performing at a club in Meridian, Mississippi. 

Cops say Quan discovered someone had smashed the back window around 2 AM, and he told cops the thieves took between $1,500 and $2,000 worth of property.

Brooke and David are cruising the Italian Riviera on a yacht, and y'know how it goes: When you're on a boat and sporting a small bikini, there's always time to get in some yoga stretches.

Salvador Dali Judge Orders Body Exhumed for Paternity Test

6/26/2017 9:01 AM PDT
Breaking News

10:36 AM PT -- A rep for Dali's foundation say they are currently preparing an appeal to oppose the order.Maury Povich ain't got nothing on this paternity test -- a judge has ordered the body of Spanish painter Salvador Dali be exhumed to get to the bottom of a baby daddy dispute.

The court handed down the order Monday after a Spanish woman claimed her mother had an affair with the artist in 1955. But with no biological remains or personal objects of the artist available to help determine whether he's the father, a judge ordered his body exhumed.

Surreal. We know.

Salvador -- who died in 1989 -- had no children with his wife. The alleged daughter, who's a tarot card reader, has made this claim twice before ... but never gotten any paternity results.

There's a lot at stake. Dali was extremely wealthy when he died. Dude lived in a castle with a pet anteater.

Unclear when the testing will be done, but just imagine Salvador doing this dance.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver didn't just attend NYC's gay pride parade this weekend -- he was waivin' the rainbow flag and dancing his face off ... and it was AWESOME!!

Silver -- one of the most powerful figures in all of sports -- rode on the NBA float alongside the league's first openly gay player, Jason Collins

Golden State Warriors president Rick Welts -- who is openly gay -- also rode on the float with his partner, Todd Gage.

Migos & Joe Budden Nearly Come to Blows After Hostile Interview

6/26/2017 6:33 AM PDT

Migos taught Joe Budden a valuable interviewing lesson -- don't abruptly end it and walk off unless you feel like getting your ass kicked.

The bizarre scene went down Sunday as Budden, DJ Akademiks and Nadeska Alexis interviewed the rap trio on their "Everyday Struggle" show before the BET Awards.

Tensions flared when Akademiks brought up the fact Takeoff was left off the hit single "Bad and Boujee" ... prompting the rapper to fire back. After a brief exchange, Budden demands Akademiks wrap up the interview but Akademiks apparently was taking too much time for Budden's liking ... who drops the mic and walks off.

Check it out ... Migos wasn't having it and all hell nearly breaks loose.

We asked Lil Yachty for his take on the beef ... no surprise whose side he's on.

Beyonce, JAY-Z Still Dealing with Twins' Premature Birth

6/26/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Beyonce gave birth 2 weeks ago Monday, but she and Jay-Z are still dealing with premature birth issues ... sources connected to the family tell TMZ.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, as of 4 days ago the infants were still in the hospital. As we reported, they are "under the lights" ... which typically means they have jaundice, the result of elevated bilirubin issues. The lights lower bilirubin in the blood to eliminate the jaundice.

We're told none of the medical problems should pose serious long-term issues ... nonetheless, we're told doctors did not want the babies released until they were stabilized.

As we reported ... Beyonce had a boy and a girl.

The release date is unclear.
