One of Fetty Wap's longtime rivals was arrested in connection with the robbery and shooting that broke out Sunday morning -- and the suspect was flashing Fetty's stolen chain on Instagram.

Cops in Paterson booked Raheem Thomas for the shootout. Thomas is the same guy who posted an IG pic wearing Fetty's signature "1738" chain. He claimed he didn't personally jack the chain, but bragged about taking a pic with it.

Sources tell us Thomas and Fetty have had a "deep rooted" beef over music deals for years. We're told Thomas' crew had warned Fetty to "stay out of Paterson" ... even though it's his hometown.

Thomas, aka Fuzz, owns Muscle Team Entertainment, and earlier this year, they dropped "Got Em Remix" ... an intense diss track against Fetty.

Thomas has not been booked for burglary ... only gun charges for the shootout.

3/27/2017 6:47 AM PDT

0327-cuba-gooding-jr-sarah-paulson-rex-01Cuba Gooding Jr. lifted up Sarah Paulson's dress during an "American Horror Story" event, and while they both laughed it off ... some fans think he crossed the line.

The co-stars were doing a panel discussion in L.A. when Sarah turned to greet Kathy Bates, and Cuba took the opportunity to hike up her dress ... seemingly to playfully check out her legs. You can see Sarah appeared to take it as a joke.

Sarah and Cuba are pretty close -- they already worked together on 'People vs. O.J.' -- but some fans in the audience reacted on social media ... calling him a "d**k" who shouldn't be allowed around Sarah. Others described Kathy as being visibly appalled.

Everything continued smoothly onstage though.

Nothing's been shot, but we're told producers are so confident they're going to shop the concept and believe they can sell a series in the room. She'll have some high-powered help -- we've learned she's signed with IMG's original content department.

We broke the story ... Danielle's managers said they had been contacted by 7 production companies and 4 of them showed interest in doing a reality show with Danielle and her mom.

The 14-year-old's already given fans PLENTY of material ... first on "Dr. Phil" with her inadvertent breakout role that launched her into stardom ... followed by a slew of physical throwdowns that also included a brawl with her mom.

Material won't be lacking.

Fetty Wap Robbed Shootout Ensues

Exclusive Details

0326-fetty-wap-TMZ-03Fetty Wap got robbed early Sunday in his hometown, and it sparked a shootout which sent 3 people to the hospital ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources close to the situation tell us Fetty had a chain and cash snatched while he was in Paterson, NJ. Law enforcement sources tell us cops were dispatched to Montclair Ave and Paxton Street around 5 AM over a fight with shots fired. Sure enough, they located 2 guys nearby with gunshot wounds -- 1 was shot in the leg and another in his torso.

A 3rd man thought to be involved checked himself into Hackensack Medical Center soon after. Fetty is not one of the victims.

Law enforcement tells TMZ an investigation is underway into the shooting, but no robbery has been reported. It's unclear whether Fetty was directly involved in the shootout.

We've reached out to Fetty's camp ... so far, no word back.

Hey, Case ... never change.

Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee I'm Giving Up On Malia

Malia Obama may have dodged a bullet by not taking Swae Lee up on his date offer because he’s already got other chicks he’s eyeing.

Rejection is never easy, but Swae seems to have a solid backup plan.

Ice Cube It Was a Bad Day ... When Goodyear Deflated Blimps

3/27/2017 6:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ice Cube's clearly upset with the latest deflategate scandal, courtesy of Goodyear.

The rapper was at LAX Sunday when he chimed in on Goodyear getting rid of its vessels. To be fair, Goodyear will unveil new airships that'll look similar. Someone should tell Cube that cause he's under the impression they're gone for good, and he's not happy.

His fury's understandable ... he rapped about the blimp in the 1992 hit track, "It Was a Good Day."

Cube also talks about his much-anticipated BIG3 League.

EXCLUSIVE

"Cash Me Outside" girl Danielle Bregoli celebrated a big one Sunday night ... she just turned 14, and she says Dr. Phil's an "asshole" for not wishing her happy birthday.

Danielle has just about exhausted her 15 minutes, but there's no evidence her time is up. Quite the opposite, she just made a deal for a TV show and she dined at old line Dan Tana's in WeHo.

BTW ... check out the tattoo ... it's real.

Jodie Sweetin Tells Cops Fiance Might Kill Himself After Engagement Ends

3/27/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0324-jodie-sweetin-justin-hodak-getty-01Jodie Sweetin called 911 when her now ex-fiance stormed out of their house claiming he wanted to kill himself ... and it led to him going to jail.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Sweetin told them Justin Hodak was out of control after they had a nuclear fight during which she ended the engagement. She said Hodak threatened to kill himself and she was worried he'd make good on his threat.

Cops arrived and spoke with Jodie, who told them he had a gun in one of the bedrooms. Cops retrieved it, ran Hodak's rap sheet and found he was a felon, so possessing a gun was illegal.

We're told Hodak returned home later and cops were waiting. They slapped the cuffs on him and took him to jail.

Hodak bailed out a few hours later.

We reached out, but he had no comment.

'OITNB' Matt McGorry Triumphant in Bev Hills PD Confrontation

3/27/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0324_Matt-McGorry_bhpd_tmzMatt McGorry just won a legal victory against a member of the Beverly Hills Police Dept. who tried to stop him from recording an incident to make sure the cops behaved properly.

Matt happened upon a traffic accident involving a Latino, so he grabbed his cell phone and pushed record to make sure law enforcement stayed on the up and up.

The "Orange Is the New Black" star is big in the Black Lives Matter movement and feels strongly ... video keeps cops in line.

Problem is ... the civilian traffic enforcement officer who Matt was recording wasn't having it and ordered Matt to stop. Matt was defiant, continuing to record and questioning the officer.

Matt posted the video and that got the attention of the brass at the Beverly Hills PD. We've learned they've invited him to come to the station to have a chitchat where they will make clear ... he had every right to record the incident.

The brass wants to make one other point ... he shouldn't record the action from the street, because someone could get run over.
