Russell Crowe D.A. Rejects Azealia Banks Case SHE Was On the Attack

12/7/2016 9:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1207-russell-crowe-tmz-01Russell Crowe will not be charged for bear-hugging Azealia Banks and removing her from his Beverly Hills Hotel suite ... the D.A. says his actions were justified because she was out of control.

According to the L.A. County D.A.'s Office ... several witnesses to the October incident said Azealia repeatedly used a racial epithet and was verbally aggressive to people in Crowe's room.

The witnesses also backed up what TMZ first reported ... that Azealia picked up a glass and threatened to use it to cut the throat of a guest. Azealia filed a police report after the incident claiming Russell choked her, called her the n-word and spit on her as he removed her from the suite. 

The D.A. concluded that Russell physically tossing her was "justified to prevent the imminent violence threatened by Banks." Russell also hired high powered attorney Shawn Holley to defend him against the allegations he said were false. As for the spitting ... the D.A. says it was "incidental to preventing more serious threatened violence."

For the record, a witness says the spit didn't hit Azealia anyway.

Kim, Khloe & Kourtney Crush Blac Chyna's Biz Dreams ... You'll Never Be One of Us

12/7/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1206-kardashian-sisters-kim-kourtney-khloe-block-blac-chyna-name-change-TMZ-01Just because Blac Chyna's marrying a Kardashian doesn't mean she can get in the club -- the Kardashian sisters are going to war to block her from cashing in on the family name.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney's companies are opposing Chyna's request to trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian" -- which she was trying to lock down for use while working in entertainment, and also on social media.

The mean girls sisters throw down the gauntlet in docs, saying if Chyna gets the trademark they'll "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill."

Translation: stay in your ex-stripper lane ... you're not one of us.

Make no mistake ... this is nasty. In the docs, they say Chyna is "deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity" of the Kardashian name.

Merry Christmas to all!

Brad Pitt Angelina's Hurting Our Kids Moves to Seal Custody Documents

12/7/2016 5:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1002-brad-pitt-angelina-jolie-tmzBrad Pitt is going to court to keep his custody war with Angelina Jolie private, and sources connected with Brad say his motivation is to thwart her from further damaging their children by airing their dirty laundry in public.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ ... Brad filed docs Tuesday in family court, requesting an emergency hearing. We're told he intends to ask the judge to seal all documents and proceedings related to his and Angelina's ongoing battle for custody of their 6 kids.

Several sources say Angelina filed the documents because she feared Brad was angling to change their temporary agreement so that he could have unmonitored visits with the children. We're told Angelina is relying on the family therapist, who says it's too early for Brad to have unmonitored visits -- but she does want him to have solo visits ... once the therapist signs off.

Sources connected with Brad, however, are calling BS ... saying the only document filed in the case is the one Angelina blasted out to the world ... exposing their 6 children to needless pain. Our Brad sources say there was no reason for Angelina to file a private agreement, and make it public other than to trash Brad and make the children collateral damage.

We're told he has made NO move to change the private agreement that was always meant to remain private -- and he feels by gratuitously making it public the way Jolie did ... it's evidence she's a bad parent.

Brad will get his shot within a few hours to argue the case should remain private. We're told the emergency hearing is slated for Wednesday morning.

EXCLUSIVE

1206-jamie-lynn-sigler-house-CRISNET-01Jamie-Lynn Sigler is handing over the keys to her home to fashion blogger and TV host Louise Roe ... and possibly banking nearly half a million while she's at it.

Jamie-Lynn sold the 3 bedroom, 3 bath home this month for $2.025 million. She only bought it 4 years ago for $1.6 million.

Meanwhile, Louise is getting a pool, spa and kick-ass location, location, location. It's close to the famed Bird Streets of the Hollywood Hills ... where homes go for 5-10 times this price.

So, nice score for Roe.

Ricky Martin Beefcake Beach With Fiance & Tramp Stamp

EXCLUSIVE

1206-ricky-martin-fiance-yosef-vacation-speedo-shirtless-photos-launchRicky Martin and his new fiance -- Swedish stud Jwan Yosef -- turned their private beach in Mexico into muscle beach ... complete with some serious-ish ink.

44-year-old Ricky showed off his tan, ripped bod and clearly has no problem rocking a Speedo these days. They appear to be wearing matching diamond rings, so it's possible they're already married.

We wonder if Jwan has a lower back tat to match Ricky's though.

Viva la '90s!
