Questlove

Kanye Was On Troll Patrol ...

Against Amy Schumer

4/23/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West had a great excuse for shooting Amy Schumer the death stare when she pulled her red carpet stunt on him and Kim Kardashian ... at least according to Amy's good friend, Questlove.

The Roots, and 'Tonight Show' drummer thinks Amy's pratfall at Time's Most Influential gala went right over Yeezy's head because the guy never lets his guard down in public ... and is way too worried about getting trolled.

The other reason, according to Questlove is ... Kanye thought Amy was just a random troll, and not a popular comedian -- with her own TV show, btw.

Check out the clip ... Q seems to think Amy can try this again next year -- and get different results.

Bruce Jenner

Journey in Progress

4/23/2015 6:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bruce Jenner is making a lot of decisions these days, but it's not as if he knows where he'll end up.

ABC released a new promo for the Diane Sawyer special Friday night, and this time you get a sense of Bruce's journey.  

Although it's short, it's interesting that Bruce doesn't see a clear end game.

Darius McCrary

Busted for Taking Son Too Long

Warrant Costs Him $15k

4/23/2015 8:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0423-darius-mccrary-tmz-01Darius McCrary should just leave a credit card on file with the Michigan court system -- he just paid dearly again ... this time for allegedly keeping his son too long on a Spring Break trip.

A bench warrant was issued for McCrary last week after baby mama Elizabeth Alanoly filed an emergency motion claiming McCrary didn't return their kid on time.  

According to court records, McCrary had to post a $15,000 bond to clear the warrant. We're told their 7-year-old son is back with Mom now.

Darius had to pay $5,500 just last month to Alanoly for back child support.

We've reached out to Darius' reps ... but no word back.

0423-50cent-mayweather-instagramSeems the 50 Cent vs. Floyd Mayweather feud is finally OVER -- with the two superstars coming together Wednesday night .... months after they TRASHED each other in public.

But last night in Vegas, the two didn't just hang out -- they took a photo together ... and 50 posted it to Instagram with the caption, "THE original MONEY TEAM, you gotta love it. My brother ready,may 2 don't get scared now."

So, beef squashed?!

Michelle Rodriguez

'Furious 7' Stunt Crew

Should All Be Represented in Credits

4/23/2015 6:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michelle Rodriguez is taking up the cause of the people who make her look good on camera … saying the stunt crew of "Furious 7" needs to have their names in the credits ... so they can get work. 

Rodriguez was leaving The Nice Guy Wednesday night in WeHo when our photog asked about a story TMZ broke … 25 members of the second unit on the film -- who are responsible for several key sequences -- got left out of the credits

M-Rod, said she didn't know if the story is legit, but if it is they have reason to be pissed off, because credits are the key to getting gigs. But Michelle cautioned, some people claiming to co-stunt aren't legit.

Debbie Evans, who does Michelle's stunts, complained on TMZ Live Wednesday that the 25 stunt people were wrongly left out.

EXCLUSIVE

Matt Bellamy New GirlfriendMatt Bellamy finally put the moves on his Kate Hudson doppelganger, because he and the gorgeous "Blurred Lines" music video star Elle Evans are now definitely banging.

Sources close to the new couple tell us Bellamy and Evans officially became an item back in March and were practically inseparable at Coachella, doing what all new couples do ... making out and taking sappy photo booth pics.

We're told they were also handsy last week at the Burberry Fashion Show in L.A. -- but she hasn't met his son yet. As we previously reported, they first met back in February through mutual friends ... and things heated up shortly after that.

We ran into Elle Wednesday at The Ivy ... and she was super tight-lipped re: Matt -- although she kinda slipped up as she said goodbye.

Chris Brown

Here's a Few Pennies, Beat It!!

Settles B-ball Beating Case

4/23/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0422-chris-brown-tmz-03Chris Brown's finally put that alleged pick-up basketball brawl behind him -- settling up with the guy who sued him ... but the guy definitely won't be retiring on what he got from Chris.

Malcolm Ausbon filed the lawsuit, claiming Chris and 3 cronies gave him a beat down in the middle of a hoops game they were playing at a 24-Hour Fitness last year in L.A.

As we first told you ... Ausbon's lawyer even sent Chris' attorney, Mark Geragos, a letter threatening to go to cops, unless Chris paid him $250k -- a move Geragos called extortion.

In the end, we're told Ausbon did get paid -- but way, wayyy less than his asking price. Sources connected to Chris describe it as a "nuisance payment" -- to make Ausbon go away -- that was no more than 4 figures.

The exact amount is sealed under terms of the settlement. As for why Chris paid such a low number -- best guess is Ausbon lost all bargaining power when he arguably blackmailed Chris.

Mila Kunis

That Ukrainian Chick's Pollo Loco!!!

4/22/2015 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mila Kunis is calling chickens**t on the Ukrainian woman who claims the actress stole her beloved chicken, Doggie, a quarter century ago back in the old country.

With a little prompting from Ashton Kutcher, Mila says she was "devastated," and "weeping" after finding out Kristina Karo was suing her for $5,000 for emotional distress and therapy bills.

Mila and Ashton hilariously question the timing ... Karo is filing suit as she tries to hawk a music video.

For her part, Mila's contemplating a countersuit because the music video 'burned her eyes and hurt her body.'

If the judge would make the countersuit a class action, we'll gladly join.

By the way ... you should check out Karo on TMZ Live, unless you're chicken.

Hilary Duff Divorce

Child Custody Fight On

4/22/2015 3:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0422-hilary-duff-mike-comrie-tmz-02Hilary Duff's estranged husband isn't giving up their son without a fight ... Mike Comrie just responded to her divorce filing, and is demanding joint custody. 

In the docs, the ex-hockey star says he wants to share custody of 3-year-old Luca. As we previously reported ... in her divorce petition, Hilary asked for primary physical custody of Luca -- and only wanted Mike to get visitation.

Sources connected with the couple tell us Hil is worried about Mike's parenting due to his partying ways. In fact, she filed for divorce the day after Comrie was reportedly drunkenly propositioning women at Mastro's in Bev Hills.

Comrie acknowledges they have a prenup -- just as Hilary did -- to sort out their property and support issues, but clearly ... little Luca is going to be a point of contention.
