EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian took her oldest 2 kids to the Happiest Place on Earth ... and made no effort to keep it on the DL.

Kim was spotted at Disneyland Tuesday holding her son, Saint, while rocking a bright neon yellow jacket that could light up the inside of Space Mountain. We're told North was also with Mom, and Kourtney and her kids enjoyed the excursion as well ... which included a family ride on It's a Small World.

No word yet if Kim's jacket's been added as a new park attraction.

Michael Avenatti's Law Firm Slammed with $10 Million Judgment

5/22/2018 2:12 PM PDT

Michael Avenatti is now on the receiving end of the legal system, because his law firm was just hit hard in bankruptcy court to the tune of $10 million.

TMZ broke the story, Avenatti's former law partner, Jason Frank, sued Stormy Daniels' lawyer last week for $2 million. Frank claimed when he left Avenatti's firm, Eagan Avenatti, the firm agreed to pay him a settlement of $4.85 million, due in installments. The first installment was due May 14 and, according to the lawsuit, Avenatti's firm missed it ... thus the lawsuit.

Avenatti's firm was in bankruptcy at the time and, even though the case was dismissed, the judge held open the settlement between Avenatti's firm and Frank. According to that settlement, if Avenatti's firm missed any of the installments, the amount due would be $10 million. The bankruptcy judge just entered the $10 million judgment against the firm.

What's more, according to the L.A. Times, one of the creditors in the bankruptcy case was the IRS, which claimed Avenatti personally owed $2.4 mil in back taxes. He agreed to pay in installments and paid $1.5 million but missed last week's deadline to pay the next $440,291.

Avenatti scoffed at the L.A. Times in a Trump style, saying the story was "overblown. Sensational reporting at its finest. No judgment against me was issued nor do I owe any taxes."

Avenatti tells TMZ, the Times was wrong to say he owes the IRS personally. He also says Eagan Avenatti is not the firm that reps Stormy Daniels ... that firm is Avenatti & Associates. The L.A. Times claims it got emails back from Avenatti from an Eagan Avenatti e-mail address.

The $10 million judgment against Avenatti's firm must now be paid. If it isn't, Frank can get the U.S. Marshal involved to seize the firm's assets and even garnish wages.

Thomas Markle says he's still being chased by paparazzi days after his daughter's marriage ... and he can't even go through a drive-thru without getting hounded.

Thomas tells TMZ the pictures of him grabbing a drink Monday were taken right after his friend picked him up from a safe house where he'd been recovering from his emergency heart surgery. Thomas says there were 5 cars filled with paps following them. What's worse, his friend's small kid was in the car.

Thomas says he's being bombarded inside his housing complex, where he needed the help of four security guards Monday to get him safely inside his home.

Thomas says he just wants to be left alone. Thomas tells us, "I never asked for this and my friends never asked for this and photographers, knowing there's a child in the car, have no business chasing it."

And, as for the alleged Frappuccino, Thomas says his drink didn't have coffee and he didn't finish it, adding don't worry about his heart.

EXCLUSIVE

One of the 3 women busted at Houston's says the restaurant's flat-out lying with its claim the women ignored warnings to leave before a security guard dragged them out.

Asia'h Epperson -- an actress and former "American idol" contestant -- told us she was shocked the police arrested her and her friends, instead of the guard. She's the one who shot the video of the alleged assault ... which now has T.I. on the warpath.

She says a Houston's staffer gladly let them use the restroom, and never asked them to leave prior to the violent incident.

Asia'h already has a lawyer, and it sounds like a lawsuit's in the offing. She also reacted to T.I. saying he's going Malcolm X on Houston's, and wants to shut down the whole chain.

As she put it ... he's battled the restaurant before and won.

Tomi Lahren Gets a Drink Thrown on Her ... At Minneapolis Bar

5/22/2018 12:45 PM PDT

Tomi Lahren made a splash in Minneapolis this week -- or rather, a splash was rendered to her. 

The conservative FOX News contributor was grabbing brunch with her mother and some family this past weekend when, on the way out, an anonymous woman chucked a full glass of water at her. Sources close to Tomi say the hurling was completely unprovoked.

In the clip, you can see Tomi come back to confront the woman and what appears to be the group she was with. A staff member seems to break it up and escort Tomi out. BTW ... we're told some of the water got on Tomi's mom as well.

Tomi is known as a lightning rod of controversy, having commented on hot button issues recently like gun control (or a lack thereof), Trump and Stormy, alleged animal abuse ... and even racist lawyer Aaron Schlossberg (whom she denounced, for the record).

Still, it seems she can't avoid the ire of the general public at times. Case in point ... this.

Stormy Daniels I'm Afraid Cohen's Leaking Audio Related to My Trump Case

5/22/2018 1:06 PM PDT
Breaking News

Stormy Daniels says Michael Cohen might be leaking like a sieve, and if he is ... she wants the judge to shut him down immediately.

Stormy's attorney, Michael Avenatti, fired off a letter to the judge in her case against Cohen and President Trump, saying they have reason to believe Cohen's leaking "select audio recordings to the media."

Avenatti doesn't say whether Stormy is on the recordings, but he says the audio is "meant to paint a false narrative relating to Mr. Cohen and his business dealings." He says Cohen may be conveniently leaving out recordings of himself speaking with Trump.

There's a hearing set for Thursday in the matter, and Avenatti is asking the judge to grill Cohen when they show up in court.

3 Doors Down Matt Roberts' Doctor Acquitted In Overdose Death

5/22/2018 1:51 PM PDT

The doctor who prescribed drugs to 3 Doors Down guitarist Matt Roberts -- before his apparent overdose -- is not guilty in his death.  

The jury returned the verdict on Dr. Richard Snellgrove, who'd been indicted back in 2016. Prosecutors claimed he improperly prescribed controlled substances to Matt leading up to his death in August 2016

Snellgrove's attorney presented text messages that showed Matt had been dabbling in street drugs in addition to his Rx meds, and argued his death couldn't be pinned strictly to Snellgrove. Prosecutors claimed Snellgrove had been prescribing meds under multiple aliases ... even though he knew they were for Roberts. 

The jury bought the defense's version ... Snellgrove's off the hook, criminally. He is still fighting the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Matt's estate.

Kim Kardashian Lets Nip Slip

5/22/2018 12:35 PM PDT

Kim Kardashian's baring it all for her new fragrance line ... but it looks like she missed a spot this time while strategically covering her lady bits.

Kim posted another very risque pic Tuesday to promote her perfume -- KKW BODY -- and got creative with a new close-up angle from the front. Only issue is ... a little nip can be seen, which might not fly with Instagram's no-nudity policy.

So, enjoy it while you can.

As you may recall ... these nude shots have been part of the marketing campaign for her fragrance from the jump -- the last one featured even more vagina.

Anyway, Kim says the perfume is fully restocked ... so get it while it's hot.

Breaking News

Aaron Schlossberg -- the attorney who threatened to call ICE on Fresh Kitchen employees who were speaking Spanish -- says ya got him all wrong, America ... he actually LOVES diversity and immigrants!

One week after he became public enemy #1, Schlossberg is issuing an apology ... of sorts. He says seeing the viral video of himself helped him see "the manner in which I expressed myself is unacceptable and is not the the person I am."

Schlossberg claims, "What the video did not convey is the real me. I am not racist."

Umm ... ok.

He added, "One of the reasons I moved to New York is precisely because of the remarkable diversity offered in this wonderful city." Schlossberg also claims "immigrants and diversity of cultures" are why he loves America.

All the tweeted apology was missing was "viva la raza" -- but his apparent 180 comes after cultural diversity partied showed up in droves on his doorstep. 

Peaceful protesters were outside his NYC apartment building all weekend accompanied by mariachi music. Gotta love New York.

Aaron Hernandez's Fiancee Pregnant ... But, Who's the Dad?

5/22/2018 12:03 PM PDT
Breaking News

The woman who was engaged to Aaron Hernandez -- the mother of his daughter -- has announced she's pregnant ... but the big question -- who's the daddy?  

Shayanna Jenkins broke the news on Instagram ... saying, "Many of you have had speculated that I may be expecting another miracle which is very accurate."

FYI, Hernandez died in April 2017 after he hanged himself in his prison cell. In theory, he could have frozen his sperm for her to impregnate herself at a later date.

If Jenkins is in a new relationship, she hasn't gone public with it -- in fact, the last time she posted a photo of a man on her IG it was Aaron Hernandez.

Still, Jenkins is shedding SOME light on her pregnancy ... saying, "I wanted to have a moment for myself alone with my daughter ... we are beyond excited about the new addition and chapter we will soon begin."

Jenkins did not reveal how far along she is or when the baby is due -- but did say she's having a girl. 

"I couldn’t be a luckier woman to have such a perfect little girl that’s prepared to become the best big sister , and even more blessed to welcome another babygirl to our home."

"BabyG we are very excited to meet you !!! Mommy and sissy will continue to wait patiently for your arrival."

Hernandez left a suicide note to Jenkins calling her his "soul-mate" and telling her that she would be "rich" after his death.

We reached out to Jenkins to find out more -- but so far, we haven't heard back.

Bishop Curry is getting major love in New York City after preaching about it at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding. 

We got the bishop in NYC Tuesday, where he was making the media rounds after his powerful sermon, hypothesizing on a world where "love is the way." He was getting swarmed by fans on the street ... people asking questions, and wanting selfies.

Our photog asks if he thought he'd get this much attention prior to his Royal Wedding appearance -- he says no, but doesn't mind making folks a little happy because of it. That jibes with what he told us Monday ... that his message of love wasn't sappy BS

He's also got some advice for any normies who aren't of Royal descent that might be tying the knot. Yep ... you guessed it.
