CHRIS BROWN THROWS DOWN
RMG News

It's the second time in as many months cops were called to Chris' pad ... the first being his massive birthday bash in May, which LAPD broke up early in the AM.

We reached out to Chris' camp about the latest incident ... so far, radio silence.

Our sources say the battery case will most likely be kicked to the City Attorney, as it would be a misdemeanor charge ... if anything at all.

Nina Simone BIZ ASSOCIATE SAYS KAMALA'S NO VILLAIN ... She Upheld Nina's Wishes

VP Kamala Harris didn't rip Nina Simone's family from her estate, as the late singer's kin claim ... at least according to a business associate of Nina's, who claims Kamala was ensuring Nina's vision for her trust was realized.

Here's the deal ... Nina's daughter, Lisa Simone Kelly, and granddaughter, RéAnna Simone Kelly, are ripping Harris -- then-CA Attorney General -- for allegedly icing them out of Nina's estate, but legal docs seem to tell a different story.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

According to Nina's will, obtained by TMZ, Nina put the bulk of her estate assets into a charitable trust to benefit the musical education of Black African children from Ghana, Liberia and South Africa.

The docs show Nina named South African singer Miriam Makeba as the trustee, and if Miriam was unable to act as trustee, MM could appoint a successor to continue to run the trust for the benefit of Black African children.

As you know ... Nina died in 2003, and Lisa was ultimately put in charge of her estate and trust. Later, in 2013, she was accused of misappropriating funds tied to the charitable trust.

That's when AG Harris and her office got involved. In the end, they reached a settlement where Lisa relinquished the rights to Nina's work and stepped away from the role.

While Nina's descendants are ticked off, the way the icon's business associate sees it ... Kamala played it by the letter of Simone's will, and carried out her very clear wishes.

Bottom line ... the associate says any anger directed at Kamala -- from Nina's family members or fans -- is misplaced.

YG TeleHealth Van's Heading in Right Direction ... But We Can Do More!!!

SERVING THE COMMUNITY
TMZ.com

YG's been helping bring medical and mental health services to the Black community for a year now, but he's not resting on his laurels ... he has bigger plans for TeleHealth Van.

The rapper -- along with NFL star Todd Gurley and owner Dion Rambo -- launched the virtual health consultation service in 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to provide resources to those in L.A.'s low-income communities without health insurance or the tech needed to receive proper care.

TeleHealth Van uses a fleet of 5G-enabled vans to do so, and has helped more than 5,000 families connect with healthcare professionals since May 2020 ... but YG tells us that's not enough.

He's on a mission to take the TeleHealth model to people on probation or parole, and like he's done with the healthcare system in Black communities ... bring actual change to the criminal justice system as well.

YG says the City of L.A. is on board with his plan, and he's hopeful TeleHealth Vans will be doing a lot more good for years to come.

Just last week, Mayor Eric Garcetti honored the TeleHealth team at his home with an Official Congratulatory Award from the city for its contributions over the past 12 months.

As we've told you ... YG's also been finding other ways to help people get back on their feet during tough times, literally.

'Bad Girls Club' Star Judi Jai Busted After Clash With Neighbor ... Allegedly Smashed Karaoke Machine!!!

'Bad Girls Club' star Judi Jai hates karaoke ... just ask her neighbor who told cops she smashed his karaoke machine in a booze-fueled rampage that ended with her behind bars.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, cops got a call Saturday morning about "shots fired" at her Atlanta-area home. When they arrived, cops were greeted by Judi, and after running her name ... found an active warrant for her arrest.

We're told she was wanted for allegedly making terroristic threats about shooting a cop.

Cops detained her while they investigated her allegations ... which included accusing her neighbor of shooting his firearm at her home and shattering her front window. She also claimed the neighbor shot her, but cops say they didn't see any wounds to back that up.

One totally relevant sidenote ... cops say Judi admitted "she had been drinking Don Julio and that she was drunk." That might explain what the neighbor told cops went down -- that while he was on his front porch listening to music, Judi allegedly walked out of her place, grabbed his karaoke machine ... and then banged it against her own front window until it shattered.

Cops say they saw pieces of his karaoke machine on her living room floor, but they did not see any shell casings ... just the shattered window.

Cops ultimately cited her for criminal trespass and hauled her away. She posted bond the next day. It's not the first time booze has been linked to problems for Judi. As we reported ... she blamed alcohol for her suicidal tweets in October, 2020.

As for this weekend, Judi's sticking to her story, telling TMZ ... her neighbor smashed her window with a bat. She says she initially thought the glass shattered due to him firing his gun.

She claims she only grabbed the karaoke machine afterward, because it was blaring music, and on her property. Judi's copping to kicking it into pieces, and being drunk -- but she denies having previously threatened to shoot a cop.

Master P I Want Pelicans Coaching Job ... Zion Will Be Happy!!!

CHANGING THE GAME
TMZSports.com

Rap legend Master P knows exactly who the next head coach of the New Orleans Pelicans should be -- MASTER P!!!! -- telling TMZ Sports superstar Zion Williamson would LOVE the move!!

Of course, times are tough in NOLA -- the Pels just fired Stan Van Gundy after one season ... and there are reports Zion's family isn't too happy with the franchise.

We spoke with P about all the drama surrounding his hometown team ... and his solution is to get himself on the sidelines as either a head or assistant coach.

"I think it's time," P tells us. "They gotta do something different, unique."

Percy has hoops experience -- he played preseason ball with the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors in the '90s ... and previously coached San Antonio Spurs star DeMar DeRozan at the AAU level.

"I played in the NBA, I done coached a lot of great players that are in the league. I done took my sons from being high school athletes to maybe they'll be the next future big-time pro athletes."

He added ... "If they bring me in as a head coach or assistant coach, I think I can change the game!"

Remember, P told us back in 2017 he was close to joining Alvin Gentry's staff ... and believes the coach would still have his job if he had brought him on board.

THE MAN FOR THE JOB
TMZSports.com

"I think he'd still have his job if he did that," P says.

As for the reports regarding Zion, P thinks his involvement as a coach will certainly make everyone happy!!

"We'll win and Zion will be happy," P said. "Everything! I feel like it's motivating the players and understanding them, that's the most important thing."

FYI -- the Pels finished 31-41 this past season ... but P is confident he can turn things around.

So, how would a rap mogul switch to NBA head coach sound?? P compares it to a former Heisman winner-turned MLB hopeful-turned NFL tight end.

"You look at Tim Tebow, they brought him to play as a tight end because they looking at times is changing."

"The NBA is entertainment. I think it's time for me to be the first hip-hop coach."

Guess Who This Excited Kid Turned Into!

Before this smirking sweetie was a television star known for his kooky catchphrases, he was just another excited kid growing up in Culver City, California.

This little lad launched into stardom at the young age of 12 on a sitcom that is friendly for the whole family. His hilarious character became a household name because of his quirky voice and physical comedy ... along with his widely known question that people still quote today.

Even after 20 years, this talented comedian is still showing off his skills as a television personality and voice actor.

Can you guess who he is?

Kendall Jenner Gets Restraining Order ... Against Guy She Says Sent Gifts, Showed Up at Home

Kendall Jenner has beelined it to court for another restraining order against a man she claims has been "stalking" her since 2018 ... TMZ has learned.

Kendall's attorney, Shawn Holley, filed legal docs Monday in L.A. against 23-year-old Isaias Noe Flores -- AKA Isaias Noah -- who Kendall claims has sent gifts, professed his love for her and showed up at her L.A. home several times over the years.

Kendall says she's particularly afraid because Noah has risked his own personal safety -- attempting to climb a barbed wire fence -- just to gain access to her home.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Jenner says her private security has intercepted letters including poems, jewelry and rose pedals addressed to her. In December 2020, she claims one letter allegedly from Noah informed her he was "moving to the city" ... which she assumed to be Los Angeles.

TMZ broke the story ... it was back on June 12 when Noah allegedly tried to gain access to Kendall's home, cutting his hand on the fencing in the process, requiring medical attention.

He was eventually taken into custody and booked for misdemeanor trespassing. We’re told he spent 10 hours behind bars before he was released.

As we've reported ... Kendall was forced to beef up her security after issues with this guy and this guy, who was sentenced to 180 days in jail. Kendall's sister, Kylie, has also had to deal with her own nightmare. And, ditto for Kim.

Our sources say Kendall has not lived in the home since an incident where one man attempted to swim naked in her pool.

As for Noah, the court agreed, and granted Kendall a temporary restraining order ... there will be a hearing on the matter next month.

Billie Eilish Apologizes for, Clarifies Use of Asian Slur ... I'm Not That Person

Billie Eilish is both apologizing for and clarifying a recent video that surfaced of the singer using an Asian slur and seemingly mocking Asian accents ... saying the clip isn't entirely as it appears.

Eilish came under fire last week after a TikTok showed her mouthing the Asian slur "c***k" as she sang along to Tyler, the Creator's song, "Fish." The song's entire verse is, "Slip it in her drink and in the blink, of an eye, I can make a white girl look c***k."

Waiting for your permission to load TikTok Post.

The mashed-up video then shows Eilish speaking gibberish, which many believed to be her mocking an Asian accent.

In an apology Monday, Billie said the video was from when she was 13 or 14, "I mouthed a word from a song that at the time I didn't know was a derogatory term used against members of the Asian community. I am appalled and embarrassed and want to barf that I ever mouthed along to that word."

She says the song was the only time she had ever heard that word, and it was never used by a member of her family or anyone else around her.

As for the second part of the clip, Billie says she was absolutely in no way mocking Asian accents, and it was simply a language she made up -- using it with pets, friends and family -- she says, "Regardless of how it was interpreted, I did not mean for any of my actions to have caused hurt to others and it absolutely breaks my heart that it is being labeled now in a way that might cause pain to people hearing it."

The Tyler, the Creator song was released in 2011 ... and from what we can see, he never received serious backlash for using the slur.

Chrissy Teigen I'm 'Good,' John's Been My Rock ... No Word on Oprah Sit-Down

FEELIN' GOOD
BACKGRID

Chrissy Teigen is finally speaking out on camera amid her cyberbullying scandal, crediting her husband John Legend for having her back -- but she's tight-lipped about a potential Oprah interview.

Photogs got Chrissy as she arrived at her office Monday -- while bumping some Destiny's Child, btw -- and asked her if she's really going to sit down with O.

She says she doesn't know if that's happening, or at least that's how she makes it seem ... and Chrissy appeared to laugh off a suggestion from Courtney Stodden.

I'M HERE TO HELP
MEGA

As we reported ... Courtney wants in on Chrissy's possible interview with O, seeing as she was the victim of Chrissy's cyberbullying before the latest round of claims from Michael Costello and others.

Later in the day, Chrissy explained how John's been her everything while she's been laying low -- this is one of the first times she's been seen in public since the bullying scandal began.

Watch the clip, she also told us what she's been doing to keep her mind off things -- super fancy arts and crafts are still her thing.

Senator Marco Rubio Pentagon's UFO Report ... I Expect More Questions Than Answers

ANY DAY NOW
TMZ.com

Senator Marco Rubio, one of the driving forces behind the highly-anticipated Pentagon report on UFOs, says he's not expecting stunning conclusions, but adds getting to the bottom of the mystery is vital for national security.

THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE
@jeremycorbell / Instagram

We got the Florida Senator Monday at Reagan National Airport, and he expects the report -- due out by Friday -- will provide more questions than answers. He believes some of the UFO cases at the center of the study will unlock answers, but some/many will not.

COMPLETELY SURROUNDED
@jeremycorbell / Instagram

Rubio is one of the few Senators pressing for answers ... and for him national security demands it. He worries some of these UFOs may be vehicles from a foreign adversary that possesses technology surpassing the U.S., and that should sound an alarm.

That all said, Rubio believes the Pentagon's report will hold back a lot ... partly because the technology we use to capture and analyze the images are top secret and we don't want to tip our hand to our adversaries.

TMZ has been investigating UFO's and Fox Network will air a 1-hour primetime special Tuesday, June 29 at 8 PM.

The program analyzes various unexplained videos and photos and includes pilots, former Pentagon officials, scientists, Senators and investigative journalists who have broken game-changing ground on the subject.

Jenn Harley BF Claims She Said 'I'll Shoot You N****' ... Before Domestic Violence Arrest

5:15 PM PT -- Jenn Harley dropped the n-word while pointing a gun and threatening to shoot her boyfriend ... at least that's what the guy told cops.

According to the arrest report from Jenn's domestic violence bust, her bf Joseph Ambrosole told cops she told him "I'll shoot you n****" and "I'll kill you right f****** now" before cocking the gun.

We've also obtained Jenn's booking photo ... and she doesn't look happy.

"Jersey Shore" star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro is a newly engaged man, putting a ring on his girlfriend's finger the same weekend his ex, Jenn Harley, allegedly pointed a gun at her new boyfriend.

Ronnie asked Saffire Matos to marry him over the weekend with a beachside proposal in Los Angeles on Saturday ... according to People. However, while the 2 celebrated, Ronnie's ex, Jenn, and her boyfriend had some fireworks of their own.

Law enforcement sources tell us Jenn and her bf Joseph Ambrosole pulled up to the legendary Crazy Horse 3 in Vegas and were allegedly arguing about where to park and about Jenn's drinking.

We're told things got so heated at the bar, security actually asked them to leave ... which they did, but sources say the fighting didn't end there. We're told that on the drive home, Jenn allegedly started wailing on the back of Joseph's head ... and then, we're told she chucked his phone out the window -- forcing him to pull over to get out and look for it.

Once Joseph was out of the car, our sources say Jenn got in the driver's seat and took off -- leaving Joseph in the street, where he had to find a ride home.

We're told things intensified even further when they got home -- where the fight continued -- and Jenn allegedly pointed a gun at Joe.

Cops say Jenn allegedly said something along the lines of "I'll shoot and kill you," but Joseph was able to get out of the way ... while Jenn fled the scene again.

We're told cops were called at that point, and they eventually tracked her down ... hauling her to jail and booking her on charges of domestic violence and assault with a deadly weapon.

Khloe Kardashian It's Over With Tristan Thompson ... Again

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have broken up, and TMZ's learned the split happened shortly after allegations spread last month that he cheated on her again.

Sources close to the ex-couple tell us ... they called things off a few weeks ago, not long after a woman named Sydney Chase claimed she and Tristan had sex after he had reunited with Khloe.

As we told you ... Tristan shot down the claims and threatened to sue Chase, but he didn't go through with it. However, we're told he maintains her allegations were untrue ... but acknowledges the breakup with Khloe occurred after the claims went public.

Our sources say Khloe and Tristan are still communicating, however, they are committed to co-parenting their 3-year-old daughter, True. We're told Tristan spent Father's Day with her, as well.

Page Six was first to report their most recent split.

Worth noting, though ... is the timing of the news of this latest breakup. It comes on the heels of a Daily Mail report that Tristan was spotted entering a room with 3 women at a party Friday night ... emerging about a half hour later looking "disheveled."

He was also seen leaving a club in L.A. at 2 AM this morning with a pal.

NFL's Carl Nassib Announces He's Gay ... 'I Truly Love My Life'

"MEANING TO DO THIS FOR AWHILE"
@carlnassib / Instagram

"I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that I'm gay."

That's Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib opening up about his personal life ... explaining how he finally feels comfortable letting the world know he's an openly gay man in the NFL.

"I've been meaning to do this for a while now," Nassib said in a social media post Monday, "but I finally feel comfortable getting it off my chest."

The 28-year-old -- who's in the middle of a 3-year, $25 MILLION contract with the Raiders -- noted he's "agonized" over this announcement for 15 years ... but said the support of his friends, family, teammates and coaches made his Monday announcement much easier.

"I really have the best life," Nassib said. "I got the best family, friends and job a guy can ask for."

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

"I'm a pretty private person so I hope you guys know that I'm really not doing this for attention. I just think that representation and visibility are so important."

Nassib continued, "I actually hope that like one day, videos like this and the whole coming out process are just not necessary, but until then I'm gonna do my best and do my part to cultivate a culture that’s accepting, that's compassionate."

Nassib said in order to ensure he takes the proper steps to making that goal a reality ... he's donating $100,000 to The Trevor Project -- an org. created to help prevent suicides in the LGBTQ+ community.

"For someone like me, who has been so lucky and cherishes every day, it brings me incredible sadness to think that our LGBTQ youth are at such an elevated risk for suicide," Nassib said.

"I feel an immense responsibility to help in any way I can -- and you can too."

Nassib was a star at Penn State -- and was selected in the 3rd round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns.

During his college career, Nassib was a consensus All-American in 2015, the same year he won Big 10 Defensive Player of the Year. He also won the Ted Hendricks Award for the best defensive end in the country.

Nassib also stood out on the HBO docuseries 'Hard Knocks' for giving financial advice to other players.

He later played for the Tampa Bay Bucs and later signed his big contract with the Raiders in 2020.

So far, Nassib has logged 143 tackles, 20.5 sacks and 1 INT in his pro career.

NFL star Saquon Barkley is throwing his support behind Nassib after his announcement, saying on Twitter, "Much respect brudda."

NFL commish Roger Goodell also released a statement Monday ... saying, "The NFL family is proud of Carl for courageously sharing his truth today."

"Representation matters. We share his hope that someday soon statements like his will no longer be newsworthy as we march toward full equality for the LGBTQ+ community."

"We wish Carl the best of luck this coming season."

Justin & Hailey Bieber Meet French Prez & Madame Macron!!!

Justin and Hailey Bieber are taking in the sights in France ... and they're also apparently taking high-level meetings, with none other than the guy who runs zi freakin' country.

The Biebers are taking Paris to kick off their week -- grabbing grub, looking good and dressing to the nines for their outings, especially on this particular occasion Monday ... when they met up with French President Emmanuel Macron, not to mention his wife, Brigitte.

Check out this photo Justin just threw up on IG -- it seems he and the missus got a little meet-and-greet with Macron and co. in what appears to be his HQ office at the Élysée Palace ... which is like France's version of the White House. Can you tell by the décor???

BTW, we know what you're thinking ... and no, this isn't photoshopped or some weird cropping effect (even though it kinda looks that way by the blurry appearance). Justin did, in fact, meet the Prez ... as other shots of him and Hailey shaking hands and giving hugs were taken.

As for what they possibly talked about -- well, Monday marks World Music Day, an event that was founded in France in 1982. So, there's that and, of course, Bieber being Canadian ... so maybe he speaks un peu de Francais (so, do we).

BTW, if they were, indeed, at a loss for topics ... Macron could've easily pivoted to music and live concerts coming back. France just started those up again -- something its leader has been on hand for lately.

Wolfgang Puck Mistaken Identity With Ariana Grande ... She's a Student, Right?!?

CELEBRITY FRENZY
TMZ.com

Wolfgang Puck loves seeing famous faces sitting down at tables in his restaurants, but he can't always put a face with a name ... Ariana Grande had him thinking she was in school.

The celeb chef joined us on "TMZ Live" Monday and we asked him about hosting tons of celebs at his famous restaurants in Los Angeles, usually for special occasions.

Wolfgang usually goes up to the table for a few kind words, but even he admits he doesn't always know who he's talking to off the bat -- as it played out, hilariously, with Ariana recently.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Ya gotta hear the way Wolfgang broke the ice with Ariana at Hotel Bel-Air, where she was dining with new hubby Dalton Gomez. It's a hilarious bit of mistaken identity, with a happy ending.

Wolfgang's getting a pass with Ariana ... and it sounds like there were no surprises when another famous couple, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, dined out at his spot at the Pendry Hotel in WeHo.

MAN ON A MISSION
TMZ.com

The restaurant mogul is the subject of a new documentary, appropriately called "Wolfgang," coming out Friday on Disney+ ... and he shared some details about his challenging upbringing in Austria, and those circumstances made him determined to make it in America.

It's a fun and fascinating conversation with one of the most important chefs in American culture ... and you can catch the full interview Monday on "TMZ Live" (check local listings).

Christina Anstead Divorce From Ant Finalized

Christina Anstead is officially back to Christina Haack (again) -- because her divorce from Ant Anstead is finalized ... TMZ has learned.

According to a legal filing, obtained by TMZ, the "Flip or Flop" star is single once more in the eyes of California. After filing for divorce in late 2020, a judge just signed off on the dissolution.

We're told she and Ant are going to be sharing custody -- both legal and physical -- of their 1-year-old son, Hudson. Christina has 2 other kids with her ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa.

Our sources say neither Christina nor Ant will have to give the other any dough going forward. It also seems they've privately hashed out who gets what assets and property.

Like we told you, Christina and Ant announced they were separating in September, before Christina formally pulled the trigger a couple months later with divorce papers. They first linked up in 2017 -- while she and Tarek were going through their own split at the time.

There wasn't anything scandalous that caused this break-up -- our sources had previously told us Christina and Ant had simply drifted apart ... so no harm, no foul, it seems.

Obviously, this is the bow tie on their relationship -- but things have been moving behind the scenes while this divorce got buttoned up with the courts. Remember, Christina already unloaded the Newport Beach home she and Ant were sharing during their marriage ... snagging a cool $5.3 mil for it after asking for about $6M at first.

This is Christina's second divorce ... same for Ant. Maybe the old saying is true about #3.
