EXCLUSIVE

T.I. grabbed the mic at his daughter's birthday bash, but instead of dropping lines ... he got sentimental talking about the "apple of my eye."

We're told Tip dropped $50k on the event and hired MusicBusinessPolitics to plan it.

And yes, it was a full family affair -- Tiny was there for her daughter's bday too.

6/24/2017 10:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Allen Iverson's got a huge game coming up ... and here we are talkin' 'bout practice!!!

'The Answer' hit the courts at Chelsea Piers in NYC Friday to shoot around with other former NBA stars -- like Kenyon Martin -- and get ready for the tip-off of Ice Cube's BIG3 league Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

He even took some time to cross over actor Michael Rapaport just for fun ... like he once did to MJ.

Iverson's 3-on-3 team -- 3's Company -- will take on the Ball Hogs in their first game ... who are captained by Brian Scalabrine and Josh Childress and coached by Rick Barry.

We also asked Iverson if he has any words of wisdom for top pick in the NBA Draft, Markelle Fultz ... his advice was short but sweet.

World's Ugliest Dog Contest Crowns Winner ... Martha the Mastiff!!!

6/24/2017 7:30 AM PDT

The top dog at this year's World's Ugliest Dog contest was also huge -- a 125 lb. Neapolitan Mastiff named Martha ... but she had some tough competition.

The 29th annual contest held in Petaluma, CA featured 14 of the world's ugliest canines, who competed for a trophy and a $1,500 prize. Now that Martha's the winner ... expect to see her on all the morning talk shows.

Martha stood out from the crowd of older smaller dogs who normally dominate the competition ... and was a fave from the start. Moe, a 16-year-old Brussels Griffon-pug mix who was the oldest in the contest, came in second.

'Bachelor in Paradise' New Policy ... Checking Luggage for Illegal Drugs

6/24/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Bachelor in Paradise" contestants will have to ante up all drugs -- both legal and not -- when they land in Mexico for the relaunched version this weekend.

TMZ has obtained an email sent by producers to contestants, which informs them of some of the "new procedures" that have been initiated in the wake of the Corinne Olympios/DeMario Jackson scandal.

The email reads in part, "Upon your arrival, your bags will be inventoried specifically for any over the counter and prescription drugs that are not prescribed to you." Any prescription/illegal drugs will be confiscated."

The email goes on ... "All drugs, over the counter and prescribed, must be submitted to the Nurse to keep and dispense accordingly for your stay in Mexico."

Our production sources say the drug policy is NOT related to Corinne's claim she blacked out during a sexual encounter with DeMario in a swimming pool. We broke the story, Warner Bros. investigated and after reviewing the video concluded she was alert and fully engaged throughout. There is no evidence she was on drugs.

The new policy is part of a broader effort by producers to keep a tighter reign on the activities of contestants.

Mike Comrie Rape Case Rejected Over Holes In Sodomy Claim

6/24/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NHL star Mike Comrie will NOT be charged with rape -- after prosecutors say there was reasonable doubt as to whether his accuser consented to anal sex during a sexual encounter in February. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Comrie was investigated over a Feb. 11th incident at his L.A. home in which he invited 2 women over for drinks and sex. 

The accuser told police she watched Comrie take the 1st woman into his room for sex. When they were finished, woman #1 left and the accuser then had consensual sex with Comrie.

According to official documents obtained by TMZ Sports the accuser says the sex was consensual at first ... until Comrie crossed the line by engaging in anal sex. 

The woman claims she told him to stop but he didn't -- instead, he allegedly choked her and told her she couldn't tell him what to do. The woman claims the sexual assault lasted 45 seconds.

But here's where things get messy ... investigators say the woman claims she showered after the incident and then engaged in another consensual sex act with Comrie, which she says also got rough when he slapped her in the face. 

At that point, the woman claims she jumped off the bed and started recording audio on her phone as she accused him of sexually assaulting her. 

Cops obtained the recording and say Comrie sounds heavily intoxicated but denied any wrongdoing -- insisting the accuser had consented to everything. 

The woman left Comrie's home and went to a rape treatment center -- where examiners noted a laceration to her anus. However, examiners noted the cut was consistent with both consensual and non-consensual sex.

In the end, investigators say they can't prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Comrie acted without believing he had consent ... and therefore they will not move forward with charges.

Abby Lee Miller Down But Not Disabled

EXCLUSIVE

Abby Lee Miller kinda pulled a Sharon Stone from "Basic Instinct" Friday ... committing an offense that pales by comparison to the other things she's done.

Abby Lee parked in a disabled spot in L.A. ... which carries a $1,000  fine. And this is hilarious ... she must have realized what she was doing, so she moved her car. Problem is ... she moved it into a red zone!

As you know, she's just days away from turning herself in for pleading guilty to multiple fraud counts, which will land her in prison for a year and a day.

Abby didn't get ticketed, as far as we know. Break given.

EXCLUSIVE

Disney Chairman Bob Iger has no doubt ... Ron Howard will bring the upcoming "Stars Wars" Han Solo installment in for a smooth landing, and any bumps in the road will be quickly forgotten.

We got Iger out Friday at E Baldi in Bev Hills when our photog asked some pretty good questions about Howard's chops in the genre. Iger laughs, saying the truth -- Ron can direct anything.

BET Awards Last Minute Changes To Honor Prodigy

6/24/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The BET Awards will pay tribute to Prodigy, but it won't be a major spectacle -- instead, his rap partner Havoc and Lil Kim will do the honors on their own.

Sources involved with the production tell us Kim and Havoc were late adds to the show as presenters. They will also share some personal words, paying respects to the Mobb Deep rapper. 

We're told BET Awards execs scrambled to put together a tribute performance after Prodigy's death Tuesday, but it was too late. Artitsts had already signed contracts to perform at the awards, and BET didn't want to burn bridges by changing their sets, which have been planned for weeks.

We reached out to BET to see if they've been able to make any late changes, but we haven't heard back. 

Lil Yachty Hey Denzel & Oprah ... Holla and I'll Cut My Locks!

6/24/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Yachty has a message for Hollywood stars, directors and moguls -- y'all should f*** with him!

The 19-year-old rapper was at LAX when our photog asked if he'd ever change his famous hair color. Yachty, it turns out, already has an age set for when he'll not only change color, but cut his locks altogether. All he needs is the right phone call from some key players in Hollywood.

Yachty says he's got range to play all kinds of roles. It's also safe to say he's a big fan of "Moonlight."

Kid's got Oscar-worthy taste.
