Queen Latifah Mom Dies After Long Struggle with Heart Condition

3/21/2018 6:16 PM PDT

Queen Latifah's mom has died after a very long battle with a heart condition ... TMZ has learned.

Latifah revealed the sad news Wednesday, saying ... "It is with a heavy heart that I share the news my mother, Rita Owens passed away today ... She had struggled with a heart condition for many years and her battle is now over."

The rapper and actress told People in 2015 she would stay at her mom's home in New Jersey to help take care of her when she wasn't working in California.

Owens had reportedly been taking meds and was aided by a defibrillator implanted in her chest to avert a heart attack. She also had to maintain a very healthy diet to live with the condition.

Latifah says she's heartbroken, but knows her mother is now at peace.

Kanye West Nothing's Easy, Yeezy!! Chinese Co. Trying to Take Over His Brand

3/21/2018 5:26 PM PDT

Kanye West might have to strap on his fightin' shoes ... because a company has come out of nowhere to compete for the right to use his Yeezy nickname.

According to new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Kanye's company was outmaneuvered by a Chinese company that swooped in and filed trademark paperwork in an effort to stake its claim to the popular Yeezy brand name.

Kanye's company has owned the name Yeezy for footwear since 2013, but for whatever reason abandoned the trademark for other clothing items besides shoes in 2017. The Chinese company -- listed as Fujian Baby Network Technology Co. -- seized the opportunity by immediately filing trademark paperwork for the term "Yeezy Boost" for its clothing products.

The rapper's company then refiled its application for Yeezy clothing, but the trademark office said not so fast ... because the Chinese company now has dibs.

The good news -- Kanye shouldn't have to worry about this affecting Yeezy sneakers, but if he wants to branch out and start making mittens or even g-strings ... he might be in for a legal battle.

Jacquees Busted on South Beach ... Told Cops, 'Don't Touch Me!'

3/21/2018 5:07 PM PDT

Jacquees got into a confrontation with cops on South Beach -- with a bunch of Spring Breakers watching -- and ended up getting arrested, after allegedly driving without a seat belt ... TMZ has learned.

The singer was driving down the famed Ocean Drive Wednesday -- in a Lambo -- when a Miami Beach officer pulled him over. According to cops, the officer told Jacquees he was getting pulled over for failure to wear his seat belt, and was asked to present his driver's license.

When he refused to show his license, the officer told him to get out of the car -- which he did, but he refused to walk with the officer to the sidewalk. Cops say Jacquees yelled, "Do not touch me."

By this time, a vocal crowd of Spring Break kids gathered and they were clearly pissed about the situation. As a result, the officer called for backup. In the video, you see Jacquees get cuffed, and the arresting officer yanks his arm pretty hard on the way to the cruiser.

He was booked for failure to obey a lawful command, and for the seat belt infraction ... both misdemeanors.

Return to your normal Spring Break activities, kids. 

Braxton Sisters Deal with It, Tamar! Your Ex is Fair Game for TV Trash Talk

3/21/2018 2:56 PM PDT

Tamar Braxton getting all butt hurt over her estranged husband's portrayal on "Braxton Family Values" makes zero sense to her sisters, who say they're gonna keep trashing him ... like family should!

Trina, Towanda and Traci Braxton told us Wednesday, Tamar's stance is hypocritical because she's guilty of airing the dirty laundry of other family members in the past.

We broke the story ... Tamar thinks the show's new season has been edited to vilify her soon-to-be-ex, Vincent Herbert. The sisters didn't exactly deny doing it, but said they just keep it real by sharing their true feelings ... whether cameras are rolling or not.

As for any contact with Vincent, sure sounds like the ladies still have Tamar's back ... as they did in October. Remember, we got them fresh off a plane on the way to comfort her after news of Vincent's alleged infidelity broke.

Ozzy Osbourne Suing AEG You're Making Me a Slave to Staples

3/21/2018 2:37 PM PDT

AEG Chairman and CEO Jay Marciano tells us, “This suit is without merit and we will vigorously fight it. We welcome a closer look at the global live entertainment market and, specifically, our practices and the practices of our competition."

Marciano adds, "AEG has always worked hard to put artists first. At the same time, we must respond to the actions of those we compete with, specifically Live Nation and Madison Square Garden. Fighting for a level playing field is fair competition at its core.”Ozzy Osbourne is suing AEG, claiming the entertainment group is essentially blackmailing him to perform at the Staples Center ... or else.

Ozzy is scheduled to perform at the O2 Arena in London, but AEG has a giant string attached ... they won't let him play the O2 unless he also performs at Staples in L.A.

Ozzy feels this is effectively a violation of the antitrust laws, which prohibit businesses from gaining a stranglehold on customers. 

Osbourne has set his sights on the newly refurbished Forum in nearby Inglewood ... not so much because he's set on performing there, but because he wants a bidding war between Staples and The Forum so he can line his pockets with more money.

According to his agreement with AEG, if Ozzy performs anywhere within a 25-mile radius of L.A. he MUST perform at Staples, and that takes away his leverage. As for the O2 Arena ... the only way he can play there is if he plays ball with AEG in Los Angeles.   

The lawsuit includes an email from Sharon Osbourne to AEG, saying, "Shame on AEG for bringing artists into a power struggle that you're having with your competition, Live Nation."

Ozzy wants a judge to invalidate the provision in his contract that forces him to perform at Staples.

Bills' Zay Jones Dad Shares Update After Nude, Bloody Arrest 'He's Gonna Be Fine'

3/21/2018 1:35 PM PDT
Breaking News

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones is home with his parents and going to be okay after the penthouse meltdown that led to his arrest Monday night ... this according to Jones' dad. 

We broke the story ... Jones was busted for felony vandalism after a bloody, naked struggle with his brother at a downtown L.A. apartment. We're told Zay smashed a hole in a balcony window on the 30th floor of the apartment ... and his brother Cayleb was fighting to save him from jumping.

Robert Jones -- who played 10 seasons in the NFL -- tweeted the update Wednesday afternoon ... thanking his followers for praying for his son.

Zay -- a 2nd round draft pick in 2017 -- was released from custody earlier this morning. He's due in court next month.

The Bills released a statement Tuesday night, saying "We are still in the process of gathering more information on the matter. At this point, we will have no further comment.”

Adam DeVine Showing My Junk ... It Ain't HARD!

3/21/2018 2:09 PM PDT

"Workaholics" star Adam DeVine is so comfortable with letting his junk hang free in his new comedy, "Game Over, Man!" ... he says he's bringing his mom to the film's premiere, and it doesn't look like he's kidding.

The movie, which does look hilarious, also stars his fellow "Workaholics," Anders Holm and Blake Anderson, but word on the movie-nudity street is Adam's the only one who went full frontal for the project.

When we got Adam at LAX, he told us that although he didn't have a problem putting it all out there, "Game Over, Man!" might spell 'game over' for his genitals getting closeups in Hollywood.

Hard to tell if that's based on quality or quantity. 

Speaking of which ... as for whether fans should expect more of a Ken Jeong or Michael Fassbender vibe? Let's just say Adam doesn't beat around the bush on that one.

Rich the Kid Wife Files for Divorce

3/21/2018 12:28 PM PDT

3:55 PM -- Rich the Kid and Antonette have two kids together -- ages 1 and 2. She's asking for full physical custody of their two children to give him visitation rights and joint legal custody. She wants spousal support as well. 

Rich the Kid is headed to divorce court ... but the details are super sketchy.

We picked up a petition Wednesday filed by Antonette Willis against Dimitri Roger ... that's the government name of Rich the Kid.

There have been rumors he cheated on her ... his wife actually put him on blast on social media, claiming he was messing around with Blac Chyna and India Love.

The wife also accused Rich the Kid in 2016 of domestic violence. 

The details of their marriage are almost non-existent. There are reports they have one kid together.

XXXTentacion Can I Get Off House Arrest, Judge'?' I Gotta Tour to 'Stay Afloat'!

3/21/2018 12:13 PM PDT

12:51 PM PT -- The judge just granted XXX's request, he's officially let off of house arrest. His attorney, David Bogenschutz, tells us XXX and his legal team are very pleased with the decision, and it was warranted based on his performance the last few months. David says, "Hopefully these are the first steps towards complete freedom."

The rapper will submit to monthly drug tests and report his travel.

XXXTentacion is pulling a DMX and asking a judge to let him off house arrest so he can make some cash ... TMZ has learned.

XXX's legal team filed docs, obtained by TMZ, asking a Florida court to remove the rapper's ankle monitor and let him out of the house so he can hit the road and make some touring money after his new record, "?" (the name of the album), hit the shelves last week.

As we reported ... XXX was placed under house arrest after being hit with 15 new felony charges for what prosecutors believe to be witness tampering by coercing his girlfriend into not testifying against him.

According to his attorneys, XXX is gonna be in dire straits financially if he isn't allowed to tour and reap the benefits of his latest work. As is the case with many in the music biz ... XXX insists artists make hardly any dough from the record sales themselves.

XXX's lawyers say he's willing to abide by the same probation terms he was subject to prior to the most recent charges in his domestic violence case ... namely, submitting a travel itinerary, submitting to drug and alcohol tests ... and checking in with a PO early and often.

Considering XXXTentacion "desperately requires" this touring income to "stay afloat" -- according to his team -- he might wanna look to DMX for some guidance. Well, partly ... we suppose.

Isaiah Washington Shonda Rhimes Agrees with Me ... Racism at ABC Got Me Booted off 'Grey's'!!!

3/21/2018 11:28 AM PDT

Isaiah Washington insists he was ousted from "Grey's Anatomy" in 2007 over false accusations fueled by an allegedly racist ABC exec ... and he says Shonda Rhimes knows it too, and has his back.

The actor tells us Shonda -- creator and exec producer of 'Grey's' -- has "nothing good to say" about ABC or its exec VP, Howard Davine. He also says Shonda believes Davine should be investigated for his "racist, biased behavior."

What Isaiah's suggesting is pretty explosive. First, that the stories about him making homophobic comments on the 'Grey's' set were lies to get him blackballed in Hollywood. Second, Shonda, the queen of TGIT, taking a stand against ABC says a lot.

She's the network's biggest content creator, and if she's calling out one of its execs ... y'know she's pissed.

Isaiah says a whistleblower tipped him off to Davine's alleged actions, and now he's hoping the Time's Up movement or others get on board with his fight.

We've reached out to Shonda's office several times, but so far no word back.

Fred Savage Accuser 'I Was Scared of the Abuse' Claims He Also Targeted Other Women

3/21/2018 10:42 AM PDT
Breaking News

The woman accusing Fred Savage of harassment and assault claims he targeted other women and it was widely known.

YoungJoo Hwang, a costume designer on the set of the TV show, "The Grinder," appeared at a news conference Wednesday morning flanked by her attorney, Anahita Sedaghatfar of the Cochran Firm and and went into more detail about the lawsuit against Savage for harassment, assault, battery and discrimination. 

Hwang -- who says she was inspired by the #MeToo movement -- claims Fred was aggressive towards her, cursed at her and was demeaning from the moment she started working on the show. She alleges she's not the only woman Savage targeted and was encouraged not to report the conduct "because a lot of people would lose their jobs."

Sedaghatfar claimed 20th Century Fox has, to this date, not conducted a full investigation into Hwang's claims and wouldn't say whether her client's filed a report with LAPD 

As we reported ... Savage says Hwang's accusations are without merit and absolutely untrue, and claims they were investigated but ... "None of her claims could be substantiated because they did not happen."
