Donald Trump Strictly Presidential Business from Now On

11/30/2016 6:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-donald-trump-getty-01Donald Trump got down to business with Mitt Romney Tuesday night at around the same time he announced he's personally going out of business.

Trump again bypassed the ever-incredulous media and tweeted, "I will be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN."

Trump went on to say he wasn't required to walk away from his business ... it was his choice. He said legal docs are being drafted to take him out of his business empire ... which presumably will be run by his kids. He said, "The Presidency is a far more important task."

Meanwhile, Trump's gotta be serious about making Romney Secretary of State ... he sprung for a meal at Jean Georges, a ridiculously expensive restaurant in the Trump International Hotel. Then again, he probably gets a discount. 

BTW ... they dined on garlic soup, sauteed frog legs, scallops with caramelized cauliflower and caper-raisin emulsion ... and these were the appetizers.

'American Idol' Bankruptcy I Wrote 'No Air' But Got No Cash ... Now Pay Me!

11/30/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1128_american_idol_composite"American Idol" producers are a sleazy, money-hogging bunch who made MILLIONS off the back of one songwriter who never got her cut ... so claims the lady in new legal docs.

A woman named Molasses Jones claims she wrote Jordin Sparks' "No Air" but never saw a dime, so she filed a claim in the reality show's bankruptcy case ... asking for a whopping $24 million bucks.

Jones says producers somehow got access to her private journals and stole lyrics she wrote long before Jordin joined the show.

Jones wants a slice of the millions 'Idol' made from "No Air."

And she's not stopping there -- Jones is also staking claim to some other pop tunes, including "No One" and "Single Ladies." We checked ... she's not credited as a writer on any of those tracks.

We've reached out to 'Idol' brass ... but they're slow as molasses.

EXCLUSIVE

1128_rachel_John-Mumford_facebookThe ex-couple who founded Barry's Bootcamp got a pretty even split in their divorce with one major exception ... she's getting the keys to the house.

Rachel Mumford filed for divorce from John Mumford back in May 2014, but they just reached a final settlement. They'll share custody, joint and physical, of their 2 teenage kids ... divvy up their bank accounts, and they get an equal share of their interest in the hugely popular fitness biz.

Rachel gets the prize ... their pad in Malibu. The divorce was nasty from the start ... with her dropping allegations of violence and drug abuse.

Took 'em more than 2 years, but it's finally over. Helluva workout ... for the lawyers.

Lady Gaga Hollywood Video Stud Busted For DUI Twice In a Month

11/30/2016 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1129-yuri-bradac-bad-romance-youtube-02The guy who let Lady Gaga stroke his golden chin was bad at romance, but apparently worse at driving ... he got busted twice for DUI in less than 2 months.

Burbank cops tell TMZ Yuri Bradac -- who starred in Gaga's "Bad Romance" video -- was arrested for DUI last week after crashing into a wall at a Chevron station.

Bradac was also popped for drunk driving last month. He pled no contest and he's on probation, which makes the most recent DUI all the more serious, because it comes with mandatory jail time.

As if that's not bad enough ... Bradac refused to take a sobriety test after being arrested last week, which means his license will be automatically suspended for a year.

Bradac has had a lot of success in music videos over the years ... he's appeared with J Lo, Enrique Iglesias and Timbaland. 

We've reached out to Yuri ... he had no comment.

"Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Drewski got way more of a show than expected at his weekly viewing party -- a couple of female cast members started throwing down. 

Drewski hosted the party at Dolce Lounge in Elizabeth, NJ Monday night and invited his co-star MariahLynn. That was his first mistake. 

We're told MariahLynn tried to break up one fight after someone poured a drink on someone she knows, then she got doused ... and the brawl was on, with MariahLynn right in the middle of fists flying.

Eventually Drewski pulled her away from the mess, and everyone went back to partying ... peacefully.

Cops tell us no arrests were made.

Melania & Barron Trump YouTuber Deletes 'Autistic' Video ... Profusely Apologizes

11/29/2016 12:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1129-melania-trump-barron-trump-gettyMelania Trump just got what she wanted -- a retraction from the YouTuber who posted a video suggesting her son, Barron, might be autistic.

The guy behind the video now says, "It was incredibly irresponsible of me to diagnose Barron Trump using a selection of misleading videos. I falsely correlated him trying to stay awake and occasionally doing quirky things, with him suffering from autism."

TMZ broke the story ... Melania hired high-powered attorney Charles Harder to fire off a letter threatening to sue the YouTuber -- whose video blew up after Rosie O'Donnell tweeted the link with the caption, "Barron Trump Autistic?"

He also admits the video -- which has been deleted -- was "false, defamatory and malicious." The apology goes even further, and seems extremely genuine and heartfelt.

Breaking News

1123-tracy-morgan-accident-tmz-01The guy behind the wheel of the Walmart truck that nearly killed Tracy Morgan has struck a plea deal in hopes of dodging jail time.

The driver, Kevin Roper, reportedly pled guilty Tuesday to vehicular homicide and 4 counts of aggravated assault ... stemming from the horrific 2014 crash that severely injured Tracy and killed his friend, James McNair.

Roper had been awake more than 24 hours when he slammed into Tracy's limo bus on the NJ Turnpike.

As part of the deal ... Roper will enter a 3-year intervention program that includes 300 hours of community service. If he stays out of trouble after that, the charges will be dropped.

The judge still needs to sign off on the deal.

The news comes a week after Walmart reached a settlement with its insurance company.
