Drake Sued Bodyguard Beat My Ass ... Threatened My Bitches

6/22/2016 5:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622_drake_tmz-2Drake drives a hard bargain ... if he tries hiring you but you turn him down, he'll have someone beat you up -- this according to famed rapper/producer Detail.

Detail has just filed a lawsuit against Drake, claiming the famous Canadian offered Detail a plum job back in 2014 as his exclusive producer. Problem was ... Detail didn't want to be tied to one guy, so he declined.

According to the lawsuit, the rejection didn't sit well with Drake, who became irate. Time passed but the bad feelings lingered. Detail claims in June 2014, Drake invited him to his Calabasas estate, on the pretext of working together again.  

Detail says he arrived at 2 AM and was met by Drake's bodyguard, Chubbs, who coldcocked him and broke his jaw.

Detail says during the beating, Chubbs yelled, "I will beat all your asses, including your bitches. I don't give a f***. I will hit you again. Do you think Drake is soft? You think Drake's a punk?"

The producer says Drake set him up for the beating, and he wants lots of cash.

Democratic Sit-in Gun Control Protest Fueled by Ironic Takeout

6/22/2016 4:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Democrats staging a sit-in on the floor of Congress won't go hungry -- we spotted their food order on its way into the Capitol ... and it's pretty damn ironic.

A couple carts full of Chick-fil-A food were toted in by Congressional interns. We get it ... protesters gotta eat, but consider this: The push for gun control legislation was prompted by Omar Mateen's heinous attack on a gay nightclub -- and Chick-fil-A's ownership has a long history of opposing LGBTQ rights.

To be fair, the company's undergoing an image makeover, and has contributed tons of food and money to relief efforts in Orlando.

Still ... odd choice. DC's a big city.

Mandy Moore Divorce I'm Taking the Prius ... Enjoy the Pinball Machines, Ryan Adams

6/22/2016 3:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-mandy-moore-ryan-adams-tmz-gettyMandy Moore and Ryan Adams are officially divorced, and in a nutshell ... she's getting wheels and a ton of cash, while he's getting arcade games.

According to the divorce docs, neither will pay spousal support. Mandy is keeping a Bev Hills condo and a 2012 Prius. Ryan will be the envy of teenage boys everywhere -- he's keeping his comic book collection, some pinball machines ... plus a 2008 Porsche Carrera and a '59 Cadillac.

He also gets several bank accounts. They're each holding on to their respective publishing rights for any music created during their nearly 6 year marriage.

Even though Mandy's getting their Griffith Park home, they've agreed to split the furniture.

Since Ryan's takeaway assets add up to more than Mandy's ... he's also paying her $425k cash to make things even.

Gwyneth Paltrow Oui, I Cannes Do The French Riviera!!

EXCLUSIVE

0622_Gwyneth-Paltrow-airbnb-france-launchEven Tony Stark would be jealous of the rental Gwyneth "Pepper Potts" Paltrow had this week in Cannes.

Gwyn hit the French Riviera for the Cannes Lions festival, and while celebs usually stay in swanky hotels -- she opted for a 7 bedroom, 7 bath villa through Airbnb.

It's not hard to see why she chose the cliffside crib overlooking the Mediterranean. It would go for about $40 mi on the open market ... so it's definitely up to Goop standards.

Disney Attack Law Enforcement 'Confident' Killer Gator Euthanized

6/22/2016 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0622-grand-floridian-beach-getty-01The alligator that killed a 2-year-old boy vacationing at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort has been trapped and killed ... so far as law enforcement can tell.

A rep for the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission tells TMZ they captured 6 gators in the Seven Seas Lagoon, all of which matched the description of the killer. They say they're confident one of them killed the boy, but since his wounds didn't contain any gator DNA ... it's impossible to make a 100% match.

Adding to their confidence ... officials say they haven't spotted or trapped any other gators matching the description of the killer since June 16.

Disney has since put up a temporary fence and warning signs. 

UFC No Sale Yet ... Not Even Close

6/22/2016 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-ufc-getty-01Reports are swirling that the Fertitta brothers are no longer the proud owners of the UFC ... but TMZ Sports has learned it's just not true.

According to reports, WME talent agency, along with a Chinese media org and a group led by Robert Kraft snagged the MMA powerhouse for around $4 billion.

Sources tell us ... there are negotiations but "a deal isn't even close." In fact, we're told there has not even been an agreement on whether 100% of the UFC will be sold or just a portion. Nor have the parties agreed on price.

One report says the deal was finalized Sunday between WME CEO Ari Emanuel, Lorenzo Fertitta and other UFC execs at a dinner meeting in Hollywood. But we've learned Emanuel was on a plane Sunday flying back from a bar mitzvah out of the country and Lorenzo was in Vegas all day. We're told Dana White and Frank Fertitta were also in Vegas all day.

We're told if a deal is consummated, it won't happen this week and it's possible it will never happen.

Whitney Houston Here's Proof Emmy Auction Is Illegal ... TV Academy Sues

6/22/2016 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0622-whitney-houston-emmy-getty-03Whitney Houston's Emmy award will NOT be auctioned off without a fight ... the Television Academy just filed a lawsuit accusing Heritage Auctions of theft.

TMZ broke the story ... the Academy is trying to block Heritage from putting the statuette on the block -- on behalf of Whitney's family -- claiming it contractually MUST be returned to the Academy.

In the docs -- filed in L.A. and obtained by TMZ -- the Academy included the sticker it says has been affixed to the bottom of EVERY Emmy handed out between 1978 to 1994. Whitney won hers in 1986.

0622-sub-emmy-bottom-02

The sticker makes it clear the statuette is the Academy's property and the winner's heirs are "obligated to return" it ... as opposed to selling it or throwing it away.

Heritage thinks the Academy is bullying the Houston family ... because more than 3 dozen other Emmy awards have been auctioned off without a peep. The live auction for Whitney's trophy is set for Friday, but the online auction is already up and running ... and someone's already bid $10k!

The DJ just dropped $2.425 million for a pretty awesome Hollywood Hills home. It's super modern, with 4 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths and the best of insane canyon, city, mountain and ocean views. The 2,500 square foot home is not for the faint of heart ... it's on four floors.

Prince DNA Shuts Down Long-Lost 'Son'

6/22/2016 11:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42116-prince-getty-04Prince is NOT the father of the federal prisoner who claimed he was the singer's long-lost son ... according to Maury Povich DNA testing.

Sources with direct knowledge of the case tell us the DNA test returned a 0.0% chance that Carlin Q. Williams is Prince's spawn. In docs, Carlin said his mother met Prince in 1976 and knocked her up in a Kansas City hotel.

Carlin -- in prison for gun possession -- is one of several people who've come out of the woodwork claiming blood relations. Another woman, Taz Walker, also claims Prince was her pops.

It's unclear what the status is of her case.

Ivanka Trump Sued Shoe Competitor Wants Her Kicked to Curb

EXCLUSIVE

0622-ivanka-trump-tmz-02update_graphic_red_bar10:05 AM PT -- Matthew Burris, CFO for Marc Fisher -- Ivanka's licensing company -- says, "This is a baseless lawsuit aimed at generating publicity. The shoe in question is representative of a trending fashion style, is not subject to intellectual property law protection and there are similar styles made by several major brands."

He adds, "The lawsuit is without merit and we will vigorously defend ourselves against the claim." update_grey_gray_barIvanka Trump's shoe line is a shameless knockoff of a wildly popular Italian stiletto ... so claims the Italian shoemaker.

Aquazzura claims in a new lawsuit, Ivanka's Hettie shoe is almost a carbon copy of its Wild Thing pump ... a shoe that protects the feet of the famous-ish, including Solange and Olivia Palermo.

0622_AQUAZZURA_ivanka_trump_shoes_sub_5

Aquazzura points to the color, shape and silhouette, as well the fringe covering the toes to the tassel on the heel.

Aquazzura says Ivanka jacked their shoes before ... copying its Belgravia shoe and calling it Necila, and also copying its Forever Marilyn shoe and calling it Teagin Pointy Toe Pump with Tassel.

That's shoe biz ...
