Blac Chyna The Kardashians Threatened to Yank 'KUWTK' ... Unless E! Canceled My Show

5/25/2018 4:41 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna claims the Kardashian family got her show "Rob & Chyna" canceled by making secret threats to E! that they would yank "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and take it somewhere else ... this according to new documents filed by Chyna.

The documents essentially claim a conspiracy to keep Chyna in the dark as to why her show was canceled. Chyna claims season 1 of her show with Rob actually did better than "KUWTK" ... so much so, scenes were already being shot for season 2.

Chyna claims the boom fell in January 2017 where a "key meeting" took place between E! executives and the Kardashian family. Chyna alleges a contributing reason, at the very least, as to why her show got the ax, was because the Kardashians "falsely claimed" she was being physically abusive toward Rob.

Chyna wants what she believes is a paper trail that would establish the alleged conspiracy.

The Kardashians have said all along the show was canceled because the ratings were not good and Chyna got a restraining order preventing Rob from coming near her ... thus making a television show impossible. 

Tiffany Haddish Ex-Hubby Sues Your Bio's Full of Lies ... I Didn't Kill Our Unborn Child

5/25/2018 2:39 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tiffany Haddish's biography -- which paints her unnamed ex-husband as an abuser, stalker and the possible reason for the death of their unborn child -- is full of lies, so claims her ex in a new lawsuit.

William Stewart says Haddish's "The Last Black Unicorn" labels him a monster in the chapter titled, "The Ex-Husband." While Haddish never mentions Stewart by name, he claims he's the only person she's ever been married to, making him easily identifiable.

According to the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Haddish details her ex-husband choking, kidnapping and stalking her during their 5-year marriage. 

In the bio, Haddish also hints at the fact Stewart's alleged abuse was to blame for the death of their unborn child. Stewart fires back in the docs, claiming they lost the child because Haddish went to the doctor to have an abortion.

Stewart says he and Tiffany were married in 2008 and divorced in 2013 ... not married twice and divorced twice like Tiffany claims in the bio. He also claims allegations she made in a 2011 restraining order filed against him were false and dismissed in court.

William's also pissed Haddish went after his own mother, Elnora Daughtery, in the book ... claiming she abused Stewart as a child and was aware he was abusing Tiffany, but did nothing to stop it.

Minaj set the internet on fire Friday after responding "yes" to a fan who asked her, "You dating Eminem???" on Instagram. Sources close to Minaj tell TMZ she was only joking ... there's nothing romantic between the two.

'Sesame Street' Creators Sue 'Happytime Murders' Producers ... You're Smearing Our Good Name W/ Ejaculating Puppets

5/25/2018 11:52 AM PDT
Breaking News

2:10 PM PT -- Fred, Esq, a rep for STX -- who also happens to be a puppet -- tells us, "STX loved the idea of working closely with Brian Henson and the Jim Henson Company to tell the untold story of the active lives of Henson puppets when they’re not performing in front of children." 

Fred continues, "Happytime Murders is the happy result of that collaboration and we’re incredibly pleased with the early reaction to the film and how well the trailer has been received by its intended audience.  While we’re disappointed that Sesame Street does not share in the fun, we are confident in our legal position.  We look forward to introducing adult moviegoers to our adorably unapologetic characters this summer.” 

This lawsuit is brought to you by the letter F because the creators of "Sesame Street" are downright Furious with producers for "The Happytime Murders" ... alleging it's taking a crap all over its good name.

Sesame Workshop is suing STX Productions -- the company behind Melissa McCarthy's new movie -- claiming its marketing strategy confuses fans into mistakenly believing Sesame is in cahoots with the movie while ruining its wholesome image.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Sesame says its beef is with the marketing campaign that features the tagline "NO SESAME. ALL STREET" and a trailer with "explicit, profane, drug-using, misogynistic, violent, copulating and even ejaculating puppets."

What's more ... Sesame says STX does not own, control or have the right to use "Sesame Street." Sesame says it's tried to get STX to drop the act but to no avail.

So it's suing to get STX to drop the tagline and unspecified damages. We've reached out to STX ... so far no word back.
