Diddy at Ace of Diamonds It's All About the Washingtons Here ... Right, Justin & T.I.?

11/15/2017 1:59 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Diddy did what Diddy does best at the Ace of Diamonds strip club this week -- be rich and blow stacks o' dough ... with some help from family and friends, of course.

Diddy and his son, Justin Combs, crashed AoD by Brand Group LA in WeHo Tuesday night with a grocery bag full of cash -- lots and lots of $1 bills based on these pics.

Sources involved in the money parade tell us Papa Combs spent close to $100k on strippers and booze. We're told 60 bottles of Ciroc were sent his way, which he then shared with other club-goers.

Oh, and Diddy's pal, T.I., made an appearance too. All that money ain't gonna throw itself.

Blac Chyna Drops All The Kardashian Sisters Except Kim from Lawsuit

11/15/2017 12:29 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna's making a big change in her lawsuit against the whole Kardashian family -- she's apparently letting all the sisters, except Kim, off the hook ... for now, anyway.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Chyna is filing to remove Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie from the legal battle, where she's accusing the fam of getting her show canceled. It's full steam ahead as far as Kim, Kris and Rob Kardashian are concerned.

Before the sisters start celebrating ... there's some fine print. Chyna lists "Does 1-100" as defendants -- that's legal speak for people you could later add to the lawsuit. It's entirely possible she'll refile against the sisters.

But for now, at least ... they're in the clear.

Crazy morning for Woodley -- though he gives credit to Southwest for how they handled the incident. 

LiAngelo Ball, UCLA Teammates Confess to Stealing 'Thank you, Mr. President'

11/15/2017 10:40 AM PST

LiAngelo Ball and both of his UCLA basketball teammates just FULLY ADMITTED to stealing in China ... and THANKED President Donald Trump for getting them back to the U.S.

Ball -- along with Cody Riley and Jalen Hill -- spoke to the media for the first time since being arrested in Hangzhou for stealing sunglasses from Louis Vuitton.

As TMZ Sports reported, the guys stole from MULTIPLE STORES -- not just Louis Vuitton -- and LiAngelo Ball acknowledged that in his apology.

"I'm sorry for stealing from the stores in China."

All three men said they were extremely sorry for shoplifting -- didn't dispute the allegations one bit -- and promised they will redeem themselves moving forward.

Each player thanked Trump by name for the work he did behind the scenes.

Head coach Steve Alford announced all 3 players are suspended indefinitely -- will not practice, suit up or travel with the team until a complete review is done by school officials.

Sounds like there is a chance the guys will still be allowed to play this season -- as Alford did not give a timeline for their return.

UCLA apologized to Alibaba -- founded by Jack Ma. As we previously reported, Ma also put in work behind the scenes to get the boys back to America.

R. Kelly Fan's Family Your Apology SUCKED ... We're Suing You!!!

11/15/2017 11:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly royally screwed up his apology for making fun of an autistic fan and that's why the family's planning to sue his rude ass.

TMZ broke the story ... Kelly bullied 27-year-old Lenny Felix into singing "I Believe I Can Fly" and then mocked him endlessly after a chance encounter outside a Hollywood nightclub. Kelly's since taken down the video in which he ridicules Lenny and replaced it with an apology video.

But the family's spokesman, Lenny's uncle Scott Lettieri, tells TMZ ... the apology was insulting because Kelly "would not take responsibility for disrespecting and getting a laugh at the expense of a sensitive young man who suffers from autism."

Lettieri went on to say Kelly used "Trumpian rationalization for shaming and bullying a sweet autistic young man ... [and] we feel there is no recourse but to pursue legal action."

We've reached out to Kelly, he had no comment.

Glenn Frey Eagles Legend Left Everything to Wife

11/15/2017 11:12 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Glenn Frey -- the late co-founder and guitarist for the Eagles -- left everything behind to his wife ... according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

Frey's will lists Cindy Millican -- to whom he was married for more than 25 years -- as sole heir to his fortune. He also named her executor of the will ... leaving her responsible for distributing his personal items like jewelry, clothing and furnishings based on his wishes.

According to the docs ... Glenn suggested famed Eagles manager Irving Azoff and attorney Barry Greenfield serve as co-executors if, for some reason, his wife can't serve.

The will lists assets of $100,000 ... but, obviously, Frey had much, much more dough than that. The doc describes a family trust, which likely contains the bulk of his wealth. 

We broke the story ... Frey died in January 2016 of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia. He was survived by Cindy and their 3 kids. Only one of them is a minor.

There is a bit of bookkeeping as well ... in the docs, Cindy says she doesn't have the original will, just a copy. She has to disclose that to the court, but it shouldn't be an issue ... unless someone contests the will, and no one's expecting that.

EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj went to see her brother behind bars for the first time since he was found guilty in his child rape trial, but she only did it to support her mother ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us she has not had a close relationship with her brother, Jelani Maraj, since he was charged for raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter. She made an exception this time, solely because her mom wanted to go.

We're told Nicki took her mother, Carol, to the Nassau County Jail last week. Carol hadn't seen Jelani since the guilty verdict.

As we reported ... Jelani was found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child. He'll be sentenced next month, and is facing 25 years to life in prison.

Every dog has its day, but it has a better day when Verne Troyer shows up with a bag of treats!

Verne visited the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation Tuesday in Sherman Oaks. The place is awesome ... it rescues doggos from the Asian meat trade, and the ones in these pics just got flown in from Korea 24 hours earlier.

Verne greeted the pups -- including the ones nearly taller than him -- because his personal assistant volunteers at the rescue shelter. He didn't adopt one himself, but we're told Verne made sure they were all well fed.

So doggone great!

Al Sharpton Props to Trump on LiAngelo Ball 'Broke Clock's Right Twice A Day'

11/15/2017 9:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

LiAngelo Ball might just be the answer to world peace ... 'cause Al Sharpton is actually BACKING Donald Trump after POTUS' involvement in the LiAngelo-China saga.

"I think that President Trump speaking to (President) Xi to make whatever arrangements were made ... was good," Sharpton told TMZ Sports in NYC. "He did the right thing."

But, don't expect to see Donald and Al hitting the links anytime soon ... 'cause Sharpton says "even a broke clock is right twice a day."

Also, probably worth noting that we got Sharpton BEFORE Trump publicly demanded 'Gelo and his UCLA bros show him some love. 

Still ... it's a start.

Bonus: Al's got a piece of advice for LaVar Ball ... and something tells us the Big Baller ain't gonna like it.

Blac Chyna Sued That Family Pic Ain't Yours to Post!!!

11/15/2017 8:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna just got slapped with a lawsuit over a photo of herself, Rob Kardashian and her son ... which she posted but does NOT own ... according to the suit.

A photo agency -- FameFlynet -- is going after Chyna for the December 2016 shot showing her and Rob taking King Cairo out in Calabasas. According to the suit, the photo was legitimately licensed and posted by several websites on December 2.

The agency's beef is with Chyna for reposting the image from one of those websites on her Instagram page ... while stripping FameFlynet's credit. BC has since deleted the shot that included Rob -- maybe on account of the nasty breakup -- but she still has a pic of her and King from that day.

The agency wants Chyna to fork over all profits she made from posting the shot.

XXXTentacion posted surveillance video of the alleged Migos jumping, and immediately had to apologize to them ... 'cause it turns out it wasn't them who attacked him.

X posted the security footage Tuesday, as well as a pic of the 2 guys who actually appeared to jump him. Neither of the guys are Migos members. 

As we reported, X initially thought one of the attackers was Takeoff, and blasted him on social media. He also posted a pic of Offset's fiancee, Cardi B.

For the record, the 2 alleged assailants were rockin' "Migo Gang" pendants -- but it's unclear if they have any real connection with the rappers.

X said to Takeoff, in an IG comment, ''From the Bottom of my heart I apologize to you, you only caught in the cross fire of your blood line, blessings."
