Mischa Barton I Chose Play Over Work And It Cost Me $200k

8/22/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-mischa-barton-TMZ-01Mischa Barton's gotta fork over a ton of cash to the screenwriter she left high and dry by blowing off his movie production to go parading all over Europe.

In legal docs obtained by TMZ ... a judge ordered Mischa to pay $200k, plus interest, to screenplay writer Daniel Lief for skipping town just as shooting was set to start for his movie, "Promoted." Mischa had scored the lead role. 

As we reported ... producers sued Mischa when they saw pics of her all over social media ... hangin' in Europe with a dude, instead of getting her ass to work. Daniel said the production delay -- he had to recast the lead -- cost more than $300k. 

We reached out to Mischa, but no word back yet.

Birdman Everything I Touch with Wayne Costs Me Millions!!!

8/22/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-birdman-cash-money-tmzBirdman just got hit hard for stealing loot from some veteran songwriters ... hit hard as in millions of dollars. 

Lil Wayne and Cash Money sampled some obscure tracks for the songs, "You" and "Certified." Seems Cash Money shorted the songwriters -- ironically exactly what Wayne claims Birdman did to him in a separate, multi-million dollar lawsuit. 

Birdman and Cash Money now have to pay the piper ... to the tune of $3.3 mil.  

Mind you, Wayne wants $51 million in his lawsuit against Birdman. But the mogul isn't worried ... we're told he's about to sign a big deal with Apple, so he'll have money to blow.

EXCLUSIVE

0819-lindsey-lohan-tmz-gettyLindsay Lohan is trying to be a tougher negotiator against Russia than either Clinton or Trump could ever be ... because she's demanding a queen's ransom for an interview on Ruski TV.

We've learned Lindsay was offered to appear on the most popular talk show in Russia -- "Pust govoryat." The show airs on Channel 1, a state-owned station.

The host wants to interview her about her relationship and breakup with ex-fiance Egor Tarabasov. Our Russian spies got us a copy of Channel 1's letter to Lindsay, in which they say, "Please send the list of demands."

Lindsay sent her demands alright ...

-- a private jet

-- security

-- 1 year Russian visa with extension

-- 500,000 British pounds

-- hair, makeup and manicurist onboard jet

-- Ritz-Carlton penthouse suite

Oh, and one other thing. She wants to meet with President Vladimir Putin and get photos with him.

We're told Lindsay is negotiating and some of the demands have been met.

Kim Kardashian Fakes Out Paps with Look-a-Like

8/21/2016 7:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0821-kim-kardashian-look-a-like-FAMEFLYNET-gallery-launch-01Kim Kardashian punk'd the paparazzi Saturday by rolling out a carbon copy so she could go about her business.

Kim's staying at Joe Francis' ridiculously amazing estate in Punta Mita, and apparently felt like going unnoticed, so her friend who looks kinda-sorta like her from a distance put on Kim's bikini and did her thing for the cameras.

Paps fell for it hook, line and sinker.

Well played.

Ryan Lochte Tears Up ... 'I Let My Team Down'

8/21/2016 7:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan Lochte fought back tears as he confessed ... he screwed over his teammates by going nuts at a Rio gas station and then lying about it.

Matt Lauer asked Lochte about the difficulties fellow swimmers Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger had when they tried getting out of Rio ... Lochte seems way more contrite than he did in his statement where he hedged on fault.

Master P Kids Make the Case ... Dad Should Pay Less Child Support

8/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-master-p-tmz-01Master P's got his kids doing the dirty work for him in his divorce case -- penning emotional letters to convince a judge to reduce his monthly support payments to his ex, Sonya Miller.

In new docs, Master P says his 3 minor kids stay with him full time because their mother's drug addiction makes it impossible for her to care for them. That's why he wants to slash the $10,473 in child support and $16,574 in spousal support that he's currently paying.

The kids -- Hercy, Mercy and Itali -- all wrote letters, submitted to the court, testifying they're better off for living with their dad.

17-year-old daughter Itali made the most compelling case ... writing, "Although I love being with my mom I was unable to keep my grades up. Unfortunately, my mom was dealing with addiction issues that affected my older sister, who hasn't even had the opportunity to graduate high school" ... even though she's 19.

Itali says she's trying to avoid the same fate.

Master P also says he's not the baller he used to be -- claiming he's making $2,441 per month and only has $432 in the bank.

Fetty Wap I Treated a Kid Like Dirt For His Birthday!!!

8/21/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819_Ftty_wapp_bike_instagram_MAINFetty Wap just made it impossible for the parents of a 19-year-old not to disappoint their kid ... because Fetty shelled out $8k for an amazing birthday present.

The "Trap Queen" rapper ran into Taekwon "Pug" Ford a few months back when he came to Baltimore to ride dirt bikes with Pug's crew. 

Apparently, Fetty knew Pug has an obsession with bikes -- he starred in "12 O'Clock Boys," a documentary about dirt bike riders in Baltimore.

So imagine Pug's surprise when Fetty presented the 19-year-old with a 2016 Yamaha YZ125. 

Fetty is no stranger to bikes ... and bike mishaps. He shattered his leg in a motorcycle accident last year. He's transitioned from 2 wheels to 4 -- smart.
