Nick Cannon to Chris Brown

That's Not a Shoe Collection ...

THIS Is a Shoe Collection!

0826-nick-cannon-shoes-instagramNick Cannon saw Chris Brown's shoe collection and thought "Aww, that's cute" ... and decided to post a few pics of his closets ... on both coasts! 

Cannon jokingly called out CB -- who recently showed off his collection. Nick captioned his pic, "@chrisbrownofficial I got stairs and ladders too! LOL! #LACloset BTW my people I'm NOT showing off or bragging by any means, but I have to show young @chrisbrownofficial a lil Sumpn' real quick." 

Looks like some of Mariah's shoe game rubbed off on Nick.

Caitlyn Jenner

Criminal Charges NOT Likely

8/26/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0820-bruce-jenner-infphotoThe L.A. County D.A. now has the Caitlyn Jenner case, and sources connected to the office tell TMZ the initial sentiment is that the collision was a tragic accident but not criminal. 

Our sources say the attorneys in the Major Crimes unit which reviewed the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. 161-page report thought it was relevant Jenner braked several seconds before impact in an attempt to avoid hitting a Lexus on PCH in February  ... a collision that killed the Lexus driver.  

The D.A. could file misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter charges because Jenner violated the speed law by not slowing down quickly enough. But the D.A. doesn't automatically file criminal charges because a driver was inattentive. It usually has to be more than simple negligence to trigger a prosecution. 

It's interesting ... the D.A. did not charge an L.A. County Sheriff's deputy who was typing on his patrol car computer last year and drifted into a bike lane killing a man, so it seems unlikely they'd file against Jenner, who was not on the phone or texting.

We're told the D.A. should make a decision within a week.

Amber Rose and Blac Chyna

Baring It All

For Reality Series

8/26/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825-amber-rose-blac-chyna-INSTAGRAM-01Amber Rose and Blac Chyna are getting their own MTV reality show, TMZ has learned.

We’re told it’s close to being a done deal with contracts on the table.

Both women have a lot in common … recently single, working mothers with high-profile rappers for baby daddys and money in the bank. They also have past love affairs with the stripper pole.

Sources close to production say the show won’t be ratchet ... it'll focus on Amber and Chyna taking care of their kids while juggling work, including club appearances.

No word if either of their famous exes Wiz Khalifa or Tyga -- who already has a show on MTV2 -- will be involved, but it wouldn’t hurt ratings.

Miss Cleo Lawsuit

Psychic Network Tarot Parts

French Toast Crunch Ad

8/26/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

A call to Miss Cleo could cost General Mills a chunk of its cereal fortune -- thanks to a lawsuit you'd think a certain Jamaican lady woulda seen coming. 

The Psychic Readers Network -- which owns rights to the famed psychic persona -- is going after the cereal giant for using MC in new French Toast Crunch commercials. 

In the suit, PRN says it's dropped more than $100 mil in advertising to make Miss Cleo a pop culture phenom -- and then French Toast Crunch came along and jacked the whole Cleo look.

The psychics want all profits attributed to the ad campaign. General Mills had no comment on the lawsuit.

Chief Keef

New Kid IS My Son, Or Is NOT My Son

... I Can't Decide

8/26/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824-chief-keef-baby-mama-main-tmzChief Keef's got a brand new baby mama situation -- she says she just had his son ... his lawyer says take a number, lady ... and Keef can't decide whether to celebrate.  

According to docs filed in Kentucky ... a woman named Lauren wants CK to pay child support for her 2-month-old baby boy, and lists him as the daddy.  

Sources close to the situation tell us they met last year at one of his KY shows, then he flew her to Chicago a few times -- and yada, yada, yada ... baby! 

Keef actually posted a photo of the boy Monday with the caption, "The White Sosa" (referring to his nickname) and then deleted it after an hour. Our sources say Lauren sent CK the pic, and he hasn't met the kid yet. In the docs, Lauren says she hasn't seen Keef since conception.

Keef's lawyer says Lauren's claims are untrue, and the rapper's constantly targeted by women looking for easy paydays.

Apparently the lawyer forgot about this story ... and this one.

Tyga

Loses $70k But Still

Fighting for Crib in Kylie's 'Hood

8/26/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0731-tyga-tmz-01

Tyga needs to just move in with Kylie Jenner already, because he's been ordered to fork over $70,000 in back rent on a house in her gated community -- a pad he claims he's actually buying.  

Tyga's gone to war over the Calabasas home -- just a few minutes from Kylie's -- and on Monday a judge ruled he had stiffed the landlord. Even with $70k on the line, Tyga didn't even bother showing up in court ... possibly because he says he's no renter.

Last week he filed suit against the landlord, saying he has an agreement to buy the property, and even plunked down $200,000 as a down payment. Until that's settled, the bottom line is ... he's gotta pay up AND move out.

The good news -- as of 2 weeks ago he can bunk up with KJ. Legally.
