Wendy Williams Kevin Hunter Says She's to Blame For Ruining Relationship with Son

5/24/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wendy Williams has put a wall up between her son and his father ... so claims Kevin Hunter Sr., who fears the fight that led to Kevin Jr.'s arrest has solidified the wall with indestructible mortar.

Sources with direct knowledge of the divorce say Wendy's estranged husband has been vocal, accusing Wendy of poisoning his relationship with their son, getting in his ear and talking smack about him ... at least that's what he's been saying.

We're told Kevin Sr. has made several attempts in recent weeks to spend time with his son to repair the relationship, but he got the cold shoulder. He's also sent his boy lengthy texts ... only to get one-word replies.

Our sources say before Wendy filed for divorce, the Kevins were super tight ... so Sr. claims the trigger for the change has to be Wendy. Of course, the marriage fell apart because Kevin apparently had a child out of wedlock with another woman.  He says he's admitted his wrongdoing but feels Wendy's feelings have been transferred to Jr.

We broke the story ... Wendy's son was arrested for assault after he got into an altercation with his dad in a New Jersey parking lot and allegedly punched him in the nose after Sr. put Jr. in a headlock. 

We're told the fight erupted over an argument involving Kevin Sr.'s demand for spousal support. They also beefed over Sr.'s claim Wendy was sabotaging his relationship with Jr.

Sr. says he still loves Jr. and will not pursue the matter criminally. However, we're told the whole ordeal is weighing heavily on Wendy's ex ... and he's worried their relationship's been ruined permanently.

'Jeopardy!' Star James Holzhauer Univ. of Illinois Loves Him ... But Not Enough For Hon. Doctorate

5/24/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

James Holzhauer is making his alma mater proud with his "Jeopardy!" dominance, but he's gonna have to keep the streak going even longer if he wants the University of Illinois to award him a huge honor.

Illini Big wigs tell TMZ ... James is proving there are many ways to use a math degree from Illinois, but they're not ready to hand him an honorary doctorate any time soon. You might think it's because he kinda shaded his campus experience recently on the show. 

James recently told Alex Trebek he "attended class as little as necessary" at Illinois and joked he majored in online poker -- but, we're told that's not why the University is holding out ... though, it can't help.

Fact is, the requirements for giving out honorary doctorate at Illinois are pretty strict, unlike other Universities where the Chancellor can unilaterally decide to hand them out like candy. At Illinois, faculty members must nominate and vote for candidates, and so far, no one's gone to bat for James.

The 2005 Illini grad recently extended his winning streak to 25 consecutive games, banking a whopping $1,991,135 and drawing huge ratings for "Jeopardy!" -- but his diverse knowledge clearly isn't impressing people on campus.

We know what you're thinking -- what if James writes a fat check? That might not do it either.

Case in point ... alum Larry Gies donated a whopping $150 MILLION to the University AND was this year's commencement speaker, but even he's getting iced out. 

Now, if James wants to pay off some student loans for a graduating class ...

Just sayin'.

Donovan McNabb I'm A Hall of Famer 'My Numbers Are Better Than Aikman'

5/24/2019 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donovan McNabb says he's "absolutely" a Hall of Fame player ... telling TMZ Sports his career yards AND touchdowns should make him a shoo-in for Canton.

"My numbers are better than Troy Aikman," the ex-Eagles superstar says.

McNabb joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show -- airing weeknights on FS1 -- and said he unequivocally expects to be wearing a gold jacket at some point in his future.

"I'm not hesitating on that. I am a Hall of Famer," McNabb says ... "My numbers speak for themselves."

Of course, D-Mac's been out of the league since 2011 ... which means he's been eligible for the Hall for the past few years -- but has been passed over every time.

When the guys asked Donovan why he thinks that is ... he says he often asks that question himself.

"When they look at my numbers, yeah, but then they always want to add other stuff into it. 'Was he an All-Pro? Was he this? How many Super Bowl opportunities?'"

"But, people don't realize how hard it is to get to the NFC Championship and to get there five times, and then make it to a Super Bowl? It's tough."

For the record, McNabb has 37,276 passing yards, 234 passing TDs and 117 career interceptions. Cowboys legend Aikman has 32,942 passing yards, 165 passing TDs and 141 career picks.

Good news for McNabb ... he says now that his old Eagles team officially has two Hall of Famers -- Brian Dawkins and Terrell Owens -- he thinks his HOF case will be taken more seriously now.

"Maybe that helps the cause going forward."

Ex-'Love & Hip Hop' Star Hazel-E I'm Not Gonna Fight City Girls' Yung Miami ... We Lost Nipsey to 'Ignorant Stuff'

5/24/2019 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Hazel-E is taking the high road in her simmering beef with City Girls rapper Yung Miami ... the ex-'Love & Hip Hop' star says she wants their feud to stay on diss tracks, instead of turning violent. 

Hazel, one of Katt Williams' ex-GFs, tells TMZ ... she's not about to start throwing hands with Yung Miami, because she's too grown for barbaric problem-solving. She also points out the music industry already lost Nipsey Hussle to what she calls "ignorant stuff." 

Their beef started this week after Hazel accused the City Girls rapper of jacking some of her beats -- and once YM started calling her every name in the book ... Hazel unleashed a vicious diss track. 

Yung Miami responded with a not-so-friendly invitation for Hazel to come meet her in the 305, so they could settle things with their fists.

Even with all the heated trash talk, Hazel says she won't be drawn into a fight because it won't solve anything. She thinks musical beef is the better option ... that way everyone can profit.

Hazel did take some shots though when we spoke to her, and threatened to sue Yung Miami for stealing music. 

Smell that??? Fresh beef on the grill.

EXCLUSIVE

Here's smokin' hot Playboy model Francia James ... she has 1.4 MILLION followers on Instagram -- and desperately wants to bang Neymar

... and somehow, we think she might have a shot!!!

In fact, James was so shook when she saw that pic of the Brazilian soccer superstar hanging with Rihanna in Paris the other day ... she straight up called him out on camera!!!

"He should've gotten with me instead of Rihanna!! C'mon Neymar!!"

Remember, Neymar was so stoked at the opportunity to hang with RiRi, he blew off a major soccer award ceremony for his teammate, Mbappe, to meet up with the singer at her fashion event. 

James is one of the most desirable women on the planet herself ... she's graced magazine covers from Playboy to FHM and has a pretty solid career in adult modeling. 

As for Neymar, the 27-year-old broke up with his serious girlfriend, Bruna Marquezine, last year and had been connected with bikini model and YouTube vlogger Mari Tavares in early 2019.

So, what's his relationship status now? Unclear ... but the dude is clearly in demand. 

God speed, Francia ...

The Milwaukee Bucks are firing back at Drake in the most awesome way — hitting him where it hurts ... Pusha T.

Mallory Edens, the daughter of Milwaukee Bucks owner, Wes Edens, is sitting courtside with Aaron Rogers for game 5 ... and she’s wearing a freakin' Pusha T shirt.

Of course, Drake and Push bad MASSIVE BEEF last year ... with each hip-hop star dropping super personal diss tracks about the other.

It got heated.

So, why the shot at Drake?

Remember, Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks were PISSED at Drizzy after game 4 in Toronto — where the Raptors ambassador roamed the sideline, taunted MIL’s players.

Bucks coach, Mike Budenholzer, was hot at Drake’s antics ... saying, "There's certainly no place for fans and, you know, whatever it is exactly that Drake is for the Toronto Raptors.”

Now that the series is back in Milwaukee ... Mallory — a model — fires back with King Push.

This is The Story of Giannis.

Harvey Weinstein Reaches $44 Million Settlement With Accusers, Creditors ... According to Reports

5/23/2019 8:23 PM PDT
Breaking News

Harvey Weinstein -- the movie mogul accused of sexual crimes by many women -- has reached a tentative $44 million settlement with several accusers and creditors ... according to multiple reports. 

The reports state the money will be used to settle several lawsuits against him, however, the deal has not yet been totally finalized. The Wall Street Journal says $30 million would be paid to the plaintiffs, with the remaining $14 million used to pay legal fees ... with funds coming from insurance policies. 

The agreement comes more than a year and a half after accusations against the disgraced mogul first surfaced. Actresses including Ashley Judd, Paz de la Huerta and Lupita Nyong'o all accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct. 

Weinstein has been hit with a multitude of sexual assault charges. Back in January, a judge threw out Ashely Judd's sexual harassment claim -- she accused him of blacklisting her from movie roles after she denied his sexual advances -- but other cases still currently stand. 

Accusations against Weinstein led to the #MeToo Movement ... a massive social movement against sexual assault through Hollywood and beyond. The movement has sparked change and firings throughout the industry and politics. 

Weinstein is expected to go to trial in New York in September on criminal charges of rape and other sex crimes.

BTW ... Pete Sampras is a former owner.

Celebs ... they like buying from celebs.  

Geto Boys Reunion Tour Canceled!!! Bushwick Bill Pulls Out

5/23/2019 5:04 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bushwick Bill is pulling out of the Geto Boys reunion and now, on the eve of their tour kicking off, the whole thing's been canceled ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Bushwick Bill tell TMZ ... he was not down with the tour because he felt organizers were piggybacking off his stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Specifically, he thought the title -- The Beginning of a Long Goodbye: The Final Farewell -- made it seem like he was on his deathbed.

As we reported, the legendary rap group was slated to begin a 4-city tour Friday -- but the promoters tell us, with Bill backing out ... they've now pulled the plug.

The wheels for the tour were first put in motion in late April. We're told that's when Bushwick phoned his group mates, Scarface and Willie D, and told them he wanted to do a Bushwick and Friends tour, but wanted to talk more about it after a doctor's appointment.

Unfortunately, that's when he found out about his cancer diagnosis.

We're told Bill believes tour organizers exploited his cancer news, jacked HIS tour idea and turned it into a full reunion for the Dirty South legends -- and that's why he decided to pull out.

People connected to Willie and Scarface tell us they were blindsided by Bushwick, and claim he didn't voice any complaints about the tour as recently as last weekend.

Bushwick is now planning to roll out a 20-city solo tour, which he's calling "Phuck Cancer," beginning June 8 in Dallas. We're told he'll donate 10% of proceeds to pancreatic cancer patients in each city on the tour.

NASCAR's Joey Logano Help Me Find Our Lost Dog!!!

5/23/2019 5:29 PM PDT

NASCAR stud Joey Logano needs your help ... he says his family's searching for their missing dog, an adorable French Bulldog named Luigi. 

Joey's wife, Brittany, says Luigi's been missing since Monday, and she thinks he figured out a way to get past the fence at their home in North Carolina. 

The Loganos say they've been calling around to local animal shelters, dialing 311 and have been putting up flyers all around their neighborhood in Charlotte -- but to no avail.

Luigi is black and brindle, weighing in at 19 lbs and should be wearing a green collar with his name and a phone number for his parents. He's also got a microchip implant, but apparently, that hasn't helped his family find him. Poor little pup. 

Joey addressed the scary situation Thursday at Charlotte Motor Speedway ... telling reporters he thinks the dog might've been stolen. 

“We’ve learned that Frenchies are one of the most stolen dogs around," Logano said. "It’s kind of sad that someone does that. It’s a member of your family. It’s a jerk move. Hopefully, we can figure it out.”

Kylie Jenner Jordyn 'F****d Up' ... Khloe Breaks Down on 'KUWTK'

5/23/2019 3:02 PM PDT

Kylie Jenner reveals her feelings about former best friend Jordyn Woods -- she done f****d up in the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal.

It's not just Kylie on the upcoming "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" ... you see and feel the torment Khloe Kardashian went through as you hear her primal screams over Tristan's tryst. 

It's all pretty tense and emotional, from the phone call that starts, "I don't even know if I should tell you this" ... to Khloe breaking down and Kris addressing the fallout in Kylie and Jordyn's relationship.

There's also an apparent rift between Kendall and Kourtney.

As we told you ... Kylie recently cleared her home of all things Jordyn, when she finally got her ex-BFF to come get her stuff out of the guest house, where she was living up until the scandal broke. The duo were inseparable for years before the scandal.

The 2 have managed to remain amicable, though ... but this clip might just rip the scab off the healing wound.
