Ja Rule Just Joking About Banksy Search But Now I Got Some Leads

11/18/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ja Rule says he was just playing when he said he was looking for Banksy, but then things got real ... and now he's hoping to score a meeting in a dark alley somewhere.

We got the rapper at LAX Friday and asked him why he's trying to find the anonymous street artist ... but he's pretty secretive himself. What's interesting is he claims he got some "real feedback" from people who know Banksy ... but our guy's not really buying it.

He does tell us he's got a new project coming soon, and suggests he wants to collab with Banksy on it -- if he can find him.

So, Banksy, if you're reading this ...

Urijah Faber Jean-Claude Would Be A Damme Good UFC Fighter

11/18/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

You MMA fighters are lucky Jean-Claude Van Damme is busy as an international movie star ... 'cause UFC legend Urijah Faber says if he wasn't doing that, JCVD could be kicking ass in the octagon.

Faber attended a kicking clinic Van Damme put on in Sacramento this week, a clinic also attended by Faber's Team Alpha Male cohort Cody Garbrandt

Van Damme got busy with his legs (as he always does) but when we talked to Urijah we needed to know if he thought the Muscles from Brussels could ever do it FOR REAL.

"Oh, absolutely."

BTW, this isn't just Faber's opinion, he told TMZ Sports JCVD actually went toe-to-toe with one of the guys from his squad, and things got a little interesting.

"He actually got in with one of our pros and was moving around, and they started going back and forth and he actually caught the guy in the face with a little heel kick and it almost got heated there we had to calm it down."

Guy obviously never saw "Bloodsport."

Simone Biles Blasts Gabby Douglas Don't Victim Shame Aly Raisman!

11/17/2017 4:19 PM PST
Breaking News

5:00 PM PT -- Gabby has pulled a near 180, saying she didn't word her reply correctly and "regardless of what you wear, abuse under any circumstance is never acceptable." She's also apologized and says she stands by her teammates.

Simone Biles is publicly attacking her former Team USA gymnastics teammate Gabby Douglas -- and it's all over comments Gabby made insinuating some women invite sexual abuse by the way they dress. 

It all started with Aly Raisman ... their 2016 U.S. Olympic teammate who recently went public with allegations she was sexually assaulted by ex-Team USA doctor Larry Nassar

Raisman -- who famously posed nude for the ESPN Body Issue -- received hate from people who shot down her story because of the provocative pics. 

Raisman clapped back with a message on social media Friday morning saying, "Just because a woman does a sexy photoshoot or wears a sexy outfit does not give a man the right to shame her or not believe her when she comes forward about sexual abuse."

That's when Gabby got involved ... saying:

"However it is our responsibility as women to dress modestly and be classy. Dressing in a provocative/sexual way entices the wrong crowd."

Biles saw Gabby's comment and went scorched-earth ... saying: 

"Shocks me that I’m seeing this but it doesn’t surprise me... honestly seeing this brings me to tears bc as your teammate I expected more from you & to support her."

She continued, "I support you Aly 💕 & all the other women out there!  STAY STRONG.

We reached out to Douglas for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Tyrese Big Win in Court Judge Allows 50/50 Custody of Daughter

11/17/2017 3:12 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tyrese just scored a big victory in court after a judge denied his ex's request for a permanent restraining order which would have severely restricted the actor's access to his daughter, Shayla.

The judge ruled Tyrese and Norma Gibson will get 50/50 joint custody beginning in January. Until then, we're told both sides have worked out a visitation schedule that will allow Tyrese to see Shayla over the holidays.

After court, he didn't have much to say about the ruling ... but made it clear he will eventually.

As we reported ... Norma claimed Tyrese physically abused the 10-year-old, claiming he beat her 12 to 16 times. Tyrese says he only struck her once on the bottom, and that Norma is simply vengeful.

Over the course of the 3-week court battle, Tyrese has posted multiple videos chronicling his own personal turmoil.

Tyrese had an online meltdown that he blamed on a Rx drug he was taking for depression.

He also claimed Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith gave him $5 million to dig himself out of a financial hole, but that turned out to be false.

Nonetheless ... the restraining order is now history, opening the door to a renewed relationship between father and daughter.

David Otunga Jennifer Hudson Did Me Dirty Throw Out Her Restraining Order!

11/17/2017 2:59 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Hudson played super dirty by sneaking into court to get an order of protection against baby daddy David Otunga to get a leg up in their custody dispute ... so claims Otunga's lawyer.

Attorney Tracy Rizzo just filed legal docs asking the judge to throw out the order of protection a judge granted Thursday, forcing Otunga out of the family home and requiring him to stay clear of Jennifer and their 8-year-old son, David Jr.

Rizzo says she and David were blindsided by the order of protection and Hudson's lawyer never gave them any notice of the hearing. She says Hudson's endgame was to "gain an unfair advantage" in their custody negotiations which reached an impasse Wednesday, trying to make David look like the villain.

In the new docs, David is clear ... "All of the allegations ... are false. I have never physically pushed J. Hudson or in any other way harmed or threatened J. Hudson or our son."

Rizzo wants a hearing next Tuesday to vacate the order of protection, and David wants to be with his son for Thanksgiving. 

David claims he's been the primary caregiver of David Jr. since birth. Jennifer says she's been the primary caregiver.

Usher $20 mil Herpes Lawsuit Dismissed

11/17/2017 2:20 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The lawsuit filed against Usher -- claiming he gave a Georgia woman herpes -- has been dismissed, but there's an asterisk.

Laura Helm filed a $20 million lawsuit against the singer, claiming he had unprotected sex with her and transmitted the disease. She had a problem -- she told someone on a recorded phone call 2 days before the suit was filed that she only had protected sex with Usher.

Helm's lawyer withdrew from the case and Helm got a new attorney, who immediately filed legal docs to dismiss the case. It is, however, dismissed without prejudice, "with intent to refile." It's unclear why her lawyer made the move to dismiss.

We reached out to Usher's lawyer, Steve Sadow, but we were not able to reach him. Helm's lawyer had no comment.

Marcia Clark O.J. is a Loose Cannon

11/17/2017 1:22 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Marcia Clark's studied O.J. Simpson as closely as anyone on the planet ... so, it means something when she says his post-prison behavior seems totally out of control. 

We got the famed O.J. prosecutor at LAX Friday and asked her about the story TMZ broke -- Simpson getting booted and banned from the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas.

Marcia's heard the news, and seems baffled by the choices her nemesis continues to make. Will it be enough to get his ass incarcerated again?

The way she sees it, O.J.'s totally unpredictable ... and that's not a compliment.

Tyrese Gibson Not Sounding Optimistic on D-Day In Court Battle with Ex-Wife

11/17/2017 11:55 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tyrese Gibson will finally find out today if the restraining order that's keeping him from his daughter will be lifted -- but on his way into court Friday he didn't sound horribly optimistic.

The operative words he used as he arrived at court ... "sacrificial lamb" ... and it was clear he thinks that's what he's going to be when the judge rules. He also went off about the medication he was prescribed ... which he blames for his recent emotional outbursts on social media.

As for what's happening in court ... the judge has dropped the restraining order keeping Tyrese away from his ex-wife, Norma Gibson. But what matters most to him is whether he gets to see his daughter, Shayla.

Stay tuned for that ruling ... 

David Otunga Jennifer Hudson is Lying About Abuse and Parenting

11/17/2017 11:14 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jennifer Hudson is dreaming when she says she's the primary caregiver of 8-year-old David Jr., and she's lying when she says her baby daddy was physically abusive ... so says baby daddy David Otunga.

Otunga's lawyer sent a statement to TMZ, in which David "denies each and every allegation" Hudson has made against him. TMZ broke the story, cops removed David from the family home Thursday night after Jennifer got an order of protection claiming David was a threat to her and their child.

Otunga's lawyer says the breaking point was Wednesday night, when Jennifer brought the 8-year-old to their recording studio until 12:30 AM. David felt it was irresponsible, especially since it was a school night.

The statement goes on to say "At no time did Mr. Otunga 'physically push' Ms. Hudson as she has alleged."

As we reported, we're told David broke up with Jennifer several months ago after he confronted her and claimed she was cheating on him. The 2 tried reaching a custody arrangement but negotiations broke down Wednesday.

David says he's been their child's primary caregiver since birth because Jennifer's on the road a lot, and he scoffs at her new claim in legal docs that she's the primary caregiver.

David's lawyer says they're going to court to undo the order of protection so he can spend Thanksgiving with his son.
