Meek Mill Outraged Over Delay in Release ... Give Me Fair Treatment!!!

4/20/2018 8:26 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

8:50 AM PT -- Meek tells TMZ ... he's thankful 3 other people's cases were dismissed at the urging of the Philly D.A., and says there are 105 more cases like theirs and his involving the same corrupt cop.

Meek feels his case should have been dismissed like the other 3, but his judge decided it should wait for a hearing in June ... so that's what he has to do.

Meek Mill's getting a raw deal compared to other inmates in the same situation, and once again ... his team says it's because the judge has it out for him.

As we reported ... the Philly D.A.'s office asked for Meek's original 2008 drug conviction to be vacated and for the rapper to be released from prison because arresting officer Reginald Graham is a corrupt cop -- but Judge Genece Brinkley shot it down.

Instead, she scheduled a hearing for the matter in June, but Meek's lawyer is crying foul ... because 3 other cases similar to Meek's were dismissed immediately by another judge.

Meek's lawyer, Brian McMonagle, tells us ... this decision is just another example of Judge Brinkley's bias toward him and "inequitable treatment." He says there's no reason for Meek's case to be delayed for 60 days when the D.A. agrees he should be free until he gets a new trial.

The only reason for the judge's decision -- according to Meek's team -- is her vendetta against him.

And just to reiterate ... even prosecutors agree he should be released on bail while his appeals are considered.

Odell Beckham Trades Shots with Shawn Mendes ... In Rap Battle

4/20/2018 10:03 AM PDT
Breaking News

Before Odell Beckham hit the gym with Dez Bryant -- he hit the stage with Shawn Mendes for a rap duel on "Drop the Mic" ... and it's pretty great. 

The NY Giants star went after Shawn's whiteness ... a lot ... with some lines that included: 

"Your skin is so pale, let's call it a hunch ... you're so white, the only meal you eat is brunch."

Also ... "No matter what you say my ego won't burst because whatever you've done, John Mayer did it first."

Mendes came through with some strong shots of his own during the ep which airs Sunday on TBS. 

"A dancing athlete that's a little unusual ... its the first time I've seen that since 'High School Musical.'"

And then a short joke ... 

"You said that I'm fake, I think millions disagree. How do they ever call you a Giant when you're shorter than me!"

4/20/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashain West is wasting no time in getting back into the clothing industry after announcing the end of DASH -- she's already hard at work on her own lingerie, intimates and shapewear line.

Sources close to KKW tell us for the last several months Kim's been developing a new brand that will serve all women. We're told it's not just Kim's name that will appear on the product ... she's had a hand in just about every aspect of the line's foundation -- from design to marketing -- and will run it top to bottom. 

Our sources say Kim's teamed up with the same group behind Khloe's successful Good American brand as well as Frame and MR Porter

Pretty quick turnaround, considering Kim, Kourtney and Khloe just announced on Thursday they'll be closing their DASH stores.

We're told the line should be out by year's end.

Nick Gordon Charged for Hanging with GF ... Disobeying Court Order

4/20/2018 7:53 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Gordon's been officially charged for breaking the conditions of his bond by hanging out with his girlfriend ... after he'd been arrested for hitting her. 

The State Attorney's Office in Seminole County, FL just announced the charge against Gordon. On March 19 cops were called to his girlfriend Laura Leal's apartment after an anonymous tipster told them Nick was there. Nick had been ordered by a judge to have no contact with Leal. 

The misdemeanor charge comes on the heels of Gordon being criminally cleared of the domestic violence charges. Leal told cops she'd actually attacked Nick, and police body cam footage from the incident showed Gordon distraught and his shirt ripped.

Nick will have to be back in court next month to face the charge.

As far as we know, he and Laura are still together.

Bill Bellamy White Guy as a Black Kid?? C'mon, 'Spy Kids' ... Do Better!!!

4/20/2018 7:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bill Bellamy isn't hating on the white guy voicing a black character on Netflix's new animated 'Spy Kids,' but he's got a major bone to pick with the show's "lazy" casting directors.

We got Bill at LAX and he told us the show should absolutely recast Travis Turner, the white actor voicing a black kid on the show. When we got Travis, he insisted he was "urban" enough for the gig ... partly because he grew up in motels. Seriously. 

Bill thinks Travis was screwed from the moment he was casted since a white kid doing a black voice is controversial no matter what. In fact, Bill gave us the perfect example of why it's messed up. It definitely wasn't a PC example ... but pretty on point.

Boxing Champ Jermell Charlo Denied Gym Entry ... Claims Racism

4/20/2018 7:23 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Boxing champ Jermell Charlo claims he and his crew were denied entry to a fancy NYC gym Thursday night because he's black ... and he captured the standoff with the front desk staffers on video. 

Charlo (the light middleweight champion of the world) and 5 people hit up Life Time Athletic gym in Manhattan to see his brother Jermall Charlo (who's fighting at Barclays Center in Brooklyn this weekend).

Problem is ... Charlo claims he was stopped at the front desk because staffers claimed he "smelled like weed."

Charlo insists neither he nor anyone in his crew had smoked and the allegation was just a bogus excuse to keep a group of black guys out of the gym. 

During the exchange, Charlo continued to challenge the front desk staff about why they're turning him away -- and at one point, a staffer tells the group she's calling 911. 

Charlo eventually left -- but shot video of police cars in the parking lot. Sources tells us police were called and did respond to the gym, but no report was taken.  

We called Life Time Athletic for their side of the story -- but they refused to comment and then hung up the phone on us.

Bernie seemed impressed Ms. Bodak Yellow was down for the cause. He told us he'd love to see her get more involved.

Cardi and Bernie rallying together on Capitol Hill? Oh, God please!

Kim & Kanye We Do PDA, Too!!

4/20/2018 6:55 AM PDT

About the only thing Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don't do on social media is PDA -- but, uhh ... go ahead and scratch that off the list.

Kimye was hanging Thursday night at Kris Jenner's house .. where the fam celebrated Kourtney's 39th birthday. Kim floated across the room -- in a skin tight white outfit -- and plopped herself down in Kanye's lap. And then, boom! They started making out.

Cute moment for them ... super awkward one for a friend sitting alone on the couch behind them, who mumbled, "You guys are the best married couple I know."

Great color commentary!

You can tell Kanye was in a great mood. The bday bash turned into a listening party for his 2 upcoming albums. It's getting killer reviews ... at least from his wife.

4/20/2018 6:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joey Bada$$ did his best to bring a fan who'd recently gone through tough times some happiness by presenting him with a platinum plaque.

JB was in NYC Thursday night for the second stop of his Amerikkkana Tour at Terminal 5. Near the end of the show, Joey brought a fan named Juan onto the stage, and everyone in the crowd started cheering his name. 

Joey told his loyal fans audience that Juan had recently been going through some "devastating" times, and presented him with a platinum record for Joey's hit single, "Devastated" ... a song that's all about overcoming challenges in life.

The crowd erupted in cheers and Juan was taken backstage for a killer view of the rest of Joey's show. Some artists go a whole career without going platinum, so it's a cool gesture for Joey to hand one over to a fan.

EXCLUSIVE

Andrew Morton, author of the most famous book on Princess Diana, says Meghan Markle holds a very important key for Royal Family's image.

Morton tells us Meghan becoming a Duchess after marrying Prince Harry is a much-needed step forward for the Royals after a checkered past where issues of race are concerned.

He says Meghan won't have to go around "kicking shins" to impart a sense of change at Kensington or Buckingham Palace -- her presence alone will do the trick.

Morton just wrote a new biography, "Meghan: A Hollywood Princess" ... and he'll have much more to say about her in next week's "Spilling Royal Tea" podcast. Meanwhile, check out this week's episode.

Mobb Deep's Havoc After Prodigy's Death ... Ex-Manager Suing Us Is 'Punk S**t'

4/20/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mobb Deep's Havoc is calling the lawsuit by the rap duo's ex-manager nothing more than a money grab that will hurt the people closest to Prodigy ... less than a year after he died.

Havoc tells us the lawsuit Buck 50 Productions just filed against Mobb Deep is sickening because he's doing it after Prodigy's tragic death last summer in Las Vegas. He says all the suit will do, IF Buck 50 wins, is take food out of the mouths of Prodigy's kids.

As we first reported, Buck 50 claims it's owed half a million bucks for management services.

Havoc doesn't seem too concerned though, legally speaking ... and says he can prove they never did a damn thing for his career. In fact, he's entertaining a countersuit.

Donald Trump Putin Bragged About Russian Hookers ... According to Comey Memo

4/19/2018 7:05 PM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump said Vladimir Putin boasted to him about the quality of hookers in his country ... this according to one of James Comey's memos.

Several media outlets have obtained the memos by the ex-FBI Director, and one of them is already adding spice to the Mueller investigation into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 election ... or at least rumors involving Trump and hookers.

In the memo, Comey claims POTUS said Russia's Prez told him ... "We have some of the most beautiful hookers in the world."

So far, no further context to the memo ... so it's unclear why Putin would tell Trump that, or why Trump would tell Comey about the alleged convo. One thing that is clear ... the GOP House members' request for Comey's memos just got way more interesting.
