Chanel West Coast

Throws Epic Tantrum

After Coachella Denial

4/15/2015 12:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chanel West Coast pulled a Justin Bieber at Coachella -- minus the chokehold -- and flipped out on camera when security guards turned her away from a VIP area.

According to our sources, the rapper and "Ridiculousness" star was with her boyfriend and another friend Saturday when they tried to get into the "artist's entrance" area, which of course requires a special wristband.

Problem was ... she had the wristband, her boyfriend had the wristband, but the friend did not. Security wouldn't give in, despite Chanel dropping Drake's name and Young Money (that's her label).  

She stormed off, but Chanel tells us she and her friends did make it through the proper entrance a short time later, and partied the night away.

Lil Wayne

Sued by Tour Bus Driver

He Threatened to Kill Me!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0415-lil-wayne-tmz-01

Lil Wayne is being sued by his bus driver who claims the rapper was trying to kill him.

According to the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Mark Jones claims he was hired to drive Wayne and crew around for his 2014 summer concert tour. First stop: Buffalo.  

Jones says he pulled over at around 11:30 PM for gas. He says Wayne became irate and started cursing, to the point the driver became scared and continued driving without refueling.

But Jones says Wayne kept his tirade going, threatening to pistol whip him, "whip [his] ass" and finish the job by killing him.  

Jones says at that point things escalated, and Wayne came at him with a gun, cocked it at close range and demanded, "I want to get to the hotel now."

Jones says he obliged and the 30 minute drive was in total silence.

Jones is suing for false imprisonment, assault and emotional distress.

Sofia Vergara

Ex-Fiance Wants to Have Her Baby

... Without Her

0415-nick-sophia-tmz-02

Sofia Vergara's ex-fiance is suing her to prevent the actress from destroying the fertilized eggs they created when they were a couple because he still wants to have her baby.

It's a bizarre lawsuit. Nick Loeb claims he and Sofia made a contract back in November 2013 where they agreed to attempt to have children by means of in vitro fertilization. Her eggs were fertilized by his sperm and then frozen and kept at a Beverly Hills facility. 

Nick claims Sofia now wants to destroy the eggs because they broke up, but he says he has the right to go forward because both parties have not agreed in writing to destroy the eggs. 

Here's what's weird. Nick claims in the lawsuit, she physically abused him on 4 separate occasions, punching him in the face twice, kicked him and threw her phone at his head.  And he claims she repeatedly berated him. If that's the case, it seems a little strange he wants a kid with her DNA.

In the documents, first reported by In Touch, Nick makes it clear he wants a child. 

Clearly Sofia has moved on. She's engaged to Joe Manganiello and is certainly done with Nick.

Sugar Bear's Brother Billy

I Was Never Missing

I Just Didn't Wanna Talk To June & S.B.!

4/15/2015 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sugar Bear Missing BrotherSugar Bear's brother Billy is alive and well, which is hardly news except June and S.B. thought he wasn't.

As we reported, Sugar Bear and June filed a missing persons police report Tuesday, because they hadn't seen or heard from Billy since Saturday. They were especially worried because Billy was going through hard times ... unable to find a job and in the middle of a contentious breakup with his baby mama, who supposedly was not letting him see his kids. 

But now Billy has resurfaced and doesn't understand all the fuss. He says he was just working with a friend and didn't feel like returning phone calls or texts from them. He says he was in contact with other family members.

Billy also says he was with his kids last week, so June and Sugar Bear were making a big deal out of nothing.

Sounds like there's some bad blood, because Billy says he won't be talking to June anytime soon.

Dennis Quaid

'Funny Or Die' Owns It ...

We're Behind the Freak Out

breaking news

Dennis Quaid really did freak out on a movie set -- but it was the set of a "Funny or Die" video.

The site finally copped to shooting the scene with Dennis ... by posting the full video showing Dennis losing it on the director and the crew of a fictional set. But now you can see the full skit which includes some hysterical sight gags.

The video leaked earlier this week ... just showing Dennis losing his marbles. He kept tight-lipped about it when we asked him about it on Tuesday -- but his wry smile made us think something was up.

So ... not a real freak out, just real funny.

EXCLUSIVE

0415-sarah-stage-instagram-02The day after model Sarah Stage took a ton of flak for looking like the fittest pregnant woman in history ... she squeezed out a baby wayyy bigger than anyone with eyes would expect. 

Stage gave birth Tuesday afternoon to James Hunter -- 8 lbs. 7 oz. and 22 inches long. Totally normal size for a newborn, and maybe even a little large ... considering Mom posted a pic Monday that looked like she'd just had a big lunch. 

Stage's pregnancy was so easy, she even went out to dinner with pal Melissa Molinaro on Sunday night ... still looking like your typical rail thin L.A. chick.

Guys wanna get her pregnant, women wanna BE her pregnant.

David Miscavige

Father Tailed By P.I.s

With HUGE Arsenal (PHOTOS)

EXCLUSIVE

0415_scientology_private_investigator_gun_photos_launchThe private investigators who were tailing the father of Scientology leader David Miscavige were carrying a shocking stash of guns and ammo, including an ominous silencer.  

As TMZ reported, Ronald Miscavige -- who claims David kicked him out of the Church -- was tailed for a year-and-a-half by a father/son P.I. team. Cops arrested the father, Dwayne Powell, and found the weapons in his car.

Powell and his son claim they were hired by the Church to follow and even harass Ronald to make sure he didn't do anything to embarrass Scientology. David Miscavige denies he hired the P.I.s or even knew them.

Take a look at the photos. They're scary.

041515_aaron_hernandez_sub

As the verdict was read, Hernandez was shaking his head in disbelief.  At one point, Hernandez turned to his fiancee and mouthed the words, "Be strong."

25-year-old Hernandez -- a former superstar tight end for the New England Patriots -- killed Lloyd on June 17th, 2013.  Lloyd was shot 6 times. 

Aaron was also found guilty of illegal gun possession and illegal ammunition possession. 

After sentencing in the Lloyd case, Hernandez will still stand trial in the shooting deaths of two people in Boston in 2012.  That trial is scheduled to begin in May.

8:18 AM PT -- Odin Lloyd's mother Ursula Ward is now addressing the court -- and explaining how Hernandez destroyed her life.  

"I felt like I wanted to go into that hole with my son."

"I miss my baby boy Odin so much. But I know I will see him again some day. At that gives me the strength to go on."

Odin's mother says she forgives the people who had a hand in her son's murder -- and asked for everyone else to forgive him as well.

Donald Sterling

Side Piece Ordered to Return $2.6 Mil

4/15/2015 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0415-v-stiviano-sterling-tmz-01

Donald Sterling had no right to shower V. Stiviano with lavish gifts, no matter how good of an archivist she was, because the loot he used to buy all the goodies wasn't his to give away.

A judge just sided with Shelly Sterling, concluding Shelly was still very much Donald's wife when he pulled his shenanigans -- giving V. a duplex, a Bentley, a Range Rover and a Ferrari totaling $2.6 mil.

But don't roll out the tow truck -- Shelly doesn't want the cars ... she wants the money. According to the ruling, $830k of the $2.6 mil is due in cash -- with $430k earmarked for the value of the vehicles. 

V. tried in vain to convince the judge Donald and Shelly were separated at the time she scored the goods, so he had every right to shell out the cash. The judge begged to differ, saying Donald had no right to use the Sterling money to fund V.'s lifestyle.

So the question ... how does V. make it right?   

Return, return, return.

Courtney Stodden's Boobs

Can We Come Out and Play?

4/15/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Courtney Stodden had a serious wardrobe malfunction ... her top didn't fly off as planned, so she just jiggled it away.

It's so thirsty it's almost endearing. Courtney was throwing a football in Marina del Rey Monday and you see the disappointment in her face when her bikini top misses its cue.  

Watch the video -- in fact watch it several times -- as Courtney vigorously shimmies it off.

Once it falls, you hear her feign shock in her finest Valley "Oh my Gaud!!!"

Even if you're not a fan, she definitely deserves the boobie prize for this stunt.

Dina Lohan

Hey Michael, Pay Up

... Or Get Locked Up

4/15/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0414-dina-michael-lohan-tmz-02Michael Lohan needs a ride to the bank ... because the Florida judge threatening jail time has suspended his license until he shells out more than $16k in back child support to Dina Lohan.

Sources close to Dina tell TMZ, a judge called Michael on the carpet for cruising around Boca Raton in his flashy Maserati while he owes thousands. The judge revoked Michael's passport and stripped him of his driving privileges ... until he pays up. 

We're told Michael phoned in during the hearing and promised the check's in the mail. The judge has heard that line before, and warned if the check doesn't come by April 24th, it's off to jail.

0414-CAR-SUB-WATERMARK-dina-michael-lohan-tmz-02Sources close to Michael say a deadbeat dad wouldn't buy a $50k Raptor truck for his son ... and insists he pays his kids directly because he believes Dina just spends the money on herself.  

Michael gave the judge proof he's bypassed Dina with the payments, but apparently the judge was not persuaded and ordered him to cut a check STAT. 

The Lohans definitely never disappoint.
