Kylie Jenner & Travis Scott We Need A Family Beach Vacation To Mend Our Relationship

3/23/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are planning a family vacation with one goal in mind ...  healing their damaged relationship. 

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... the fam's first order of business when Travis gets a break from his Astroworld tour next week is a family trip with no distractions -- so they can focus on spending time together with baby Stormi

As we reported ... Kylie, Travis and Stormi went to dinner as a family Thursday night, the first time we've seen them all together since the billionaire accused the rapper of cheating. We're told the parents' relationship is getting back on track after an epic blowup, but a family vacay will go a long ways towards mending their wounds

What's interesting ... they chose to chow down at Sweet Chick, a restaurant which is co-owned by Nas. It's super popular, and it's a scene. Paparazzi are almost guaranteed, so it's clear they wanted to be seen.

Kylie and Travis are serious about the "no distractions" part of the trip ... we're told they're clearing their schedules and asking a travel agent to find a beach in another country, where they can relax in peace.

YG Baby #2 on the Way ... It's A(nother) Girl!!!

3/21/2019 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

YG and his baby mama are back at it -- the couple's expecting their second child together, and TMZ's learned their daughter is going to have a little sister!

Sources close to the rapper have confirmed with us ... YG's baby mama, Catelyn Sparks, is pregnant with a baby girl. We're told she's due this summer ... sometime in July.

The 2 have one child together already -- their 3-year-old little girl named Harmony.

YG and Catelyn have a couple of baby registries, like most expecting parents -- at Buy Buy Baby and Target -- and it's pretty much what you'd expect ...  strollers, pacifiers, baby bottles, a rubber duckie -- you get the picture. 

One more fun fact -- we're told DJ Mustard's baby mama, Chanel, who's also pregnant and due very soon, has been Sparks' companion to several maternity classes -- and that's ON TOP of each already having 3-year-old girls. We know the fellas like to hang out together too.

Best wishes to both sets of moms and dads!

Drake's Baby Mama IG Vid with Drizzy Look-Alike ... Clout-Standing Move!!!

3/20/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake and his baby mama get along great and co-parent like champs, but they're not on romantic dinner date terms ... despite a video she posted that made it seem like they are.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Sophie Brussaux has been hanging out with a Drizzy doppelganger lately, and it was no accident she shared a quick shot of the guy on social media last week ... just hours after she attended Drake's Paris concert.

We're told those around Sophie believe it was a calculated move to gain some clout by making it seem like she and Drake break bread together. It worked too -- several media outlets reported Drake had dinner with Sophie that night.

Our sources say that's definitely not the case, and confirm the dude in the vid is just a bearded, light-skinned look-alike.

It's interesting, because as we reported ... Drake rolled out the red carpet for Sophie in Paris by granting her an all-access VIP pass, and they've had a positive relationship for their son, Adonis.

Seems unnecessary for her to pretend it's more than that. Then again ... gotta get them likes!!!

College Bribery Scandal Felicity, Lori Arrests Show System's Flaws ... Says SAT Prep Expert

3/19/2019 1:53 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Shaan Patel's not shocked or outraged by the recent college admissions scandal, and says the ultimate fallout will be more people -- yes, even the filthy rich -- opting to take a legal route to higher scores.

Shaan's company, Prep Expert, really took off after he appeared on "Shark Tank" and convinced Mark Cuban to invest. On Tuesday's "TMZ Live," he admitted the college entrance process has always been rigged to favor 1 percenters ... hence the $1,000/hr. he's gotten as a tutor! 

He says the difference between the alleged cheating/bribery scandal and courses like his is simple -- results. Make that, LEGAL results -- and he claims to have the numbers to back that up. 

Still, he doesn't dodge the notion that desire to get into name-brand schools -- like Harvard, Yale, USC and Stanford -- can lead to parents making shady deals.

Ya know, like allegedly paying $500,000 to have your daughters designated as recruits for the crew team ... when they don't actually row.

Translation: the whole process is a racket -- has been for a long time -- but there are cheaper, less criminal paths to success.

'Ray Donovan' Star Pooch Hall Plea Deal in DUI, Child Abuse Case

3/19/2019 10:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Ray Donovan" star Marion "Pooch" Hall will not do any jail time for his alarming DUI ... which ended with him wrecking his car while his baby was in the back seat. 

Hall struck a deal with prosecutors -- he entered a no contest plea to misdemeanor DUI and to child endangerment. For the DUI his sentence is 3 years probation and a 3-month alcohol program. 

TMZ broke the story ... Hall was charged with felony child abuse and DUI back in October after a witness saw him driving with his toddler in his lap and holding the steering wheel. He blew a .25 ... more than 3 times the legal limit.

He eventually swerved off and smashed into a parked car. One eyewitness said he saw the child crying in the front seat and saw the car seat laying among the junk in the backseat. The car seat was not installed.

Still, he won't do any time for the child endangerment. The deal calls for Hall to complete a one-year parenting class, and if he does ... the charge will be dismissed.

This didn't appear to be an isolated incident.

Pooch put his kids in danger when he recorded himself while behind the wheel ... showing one of his sons on video standing in the back seat and clearly not wearing a seatbelt. 

Wrestling Dreadlock Incident Referee Claims Defamation ... Wants $100,000

3/19/2019 6:49 AM PDT
Breaking News

The high school referee who told Andrew Johnson to cut his dreadlocks or forfeit is now threatening to sue ... claiming he's been DEFAMED and he's demanding $100,000 in damages. 

The wrestling match made international headlines when Johnson -- who is black -- appeared humiliated when he was essentially forced to cut his hair during the Dec. 2018 match. 

The ref, Alan Maloney, has not reffed a single high school wrestling match since ... and he's pissed -- claiming he did nothing wrong. 

In fact, Maloney believes he was simply following the rules laid out by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association ... and should NOT be subject to any sort of punishment. 

In his letter, Maloney states his case ... saying Johnson's hair length violated the rules. Maloney claims he gave Johnson time to get a hair covering, but Johnson did not have one.

So, in accordance with NJSIAA policy, Maloney says "provided the wrestler with the time to correct the deficiency" -- aka, a haircut

Once the video went viral, many people accused Maloney of operating out of racism and he feels the NJSIAA did nothing to correct the narrative. 

Now, Maloney has fired off a letter to the NJSIAA saying he's planning to take legal action because he feels the association has participated in DEFAMING him, causing him to lose income and suffer emotional distress. He's claiming damages of $100k. 

We spoke with Johnson's attorney Dominic Speziali who tells us, "To the extent that [Maloney] plans to file a claim as a victim in this incident is outright absurd."

As for Johnson, he returned to the mat after the incident and qualified for the prestigious regional championships

Sherri Shepherd Lori Loughlin Was Stupid ... All Olivia Wanted to Do Was Party

3/16/2019 7:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sherri Shepherd's hot take on the college cheating scandal is that the days of "white privilege" are over, and the parents who paid to get unqualified kids into college were just plain dumb.

We got Sherri Friday night in WeHo outside The Laugh Factory, and she went off on the difference between black and white parents. She even thinks white parents who got entangled in Operation Varsity Blues may have taken their cue from white sitcoms. She says such a storyline in black sitcoms is nonexistent.

Bottom line ... Sherri says Lori wasted her cash because Olivia wanted nothing to do with USC.

Former Disney Star Kyle Massey Sued for Sexual Misconduct with Minor

3/15/2019 4:38 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former Disney star Kyle Massey is being sued by a 13-year-old girl who claims he sent her sexually explicit photos and video which allegedly include shots of his erect penis.

The girl claims in the lawsuit she and her mom met the "That's So Raven" star at Universal City back in 2009 when she was just 4 years old. She says Massey maintained contact with her and held himself out as a father figure.

The girl says she had long been interested in pursuing an entertainment career and hoped Kyle would help.   

She claims in December he spoke with the mother and invited the child to fly out to L.A. where he would take care of her and help get her an agent. He said the girl could stay with him and his girlfriend.  

The girl and her mom claim days later, Massey began sending the girl "numerous sexually explicit text messages, images, and videos" including "a Snapchat image of Massey holding his penis with a corresponding text message that reads 'LOL/Just me messing with u LOL.'"  She also claims he sent her video of his erect penis.

The girl is suing for at least $1.5 million. 

We reached out to Massey's rep ... so far, no word back. 

UFC's Tony Ferguson 'Violent, Paranoid and Delusional' ... Wife Says

3/15/2019 1:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Tony Ferguson pushed his wife, abducted their son and tore their house apart on several occasions ... this according to Tony's wife who says she's now afraid for all of their lives. 

It's all spelled out in court docs obtained by TMZ Sports ... Cristina Ferguson says Tony has been "acting violent, paranoid and delusional for the past several months" and he needs help. 

Cristina says Tony's behavior has been concerning for years -- but got significantly worse in 2017. 

Since 2017, Cristina claims Tony has flown into manic episodes where he's destroyed property in their Santa Ana home -- including ripping off mirrors and dismantled appliances looking for tracking devices and cameras. She included pictures of the wreckage. 

Cristina claims Tony has stated their 2-year-old son is Jesus Christ, that Tony is the "second Jesus Christ" and that she is a witch. 

Cristina clearly believes Tony is suffering from mental illness that is causing him to be delusional and manic. She's tried to get him help over the years but his situation hasn't gotten better. 

She claims Tony shoved her during a January 2018 incident and abducted their son during a March 7, 2019 incident. 

"[His] erratic behavior is getting worse and more frightening. I am afraid that during one of [his] episodes [he] will kill me, our son and/or himself."

Cristina requested a domestic violence restraining order against Tony which was granted by the judge. He now has to stay at least 100 yards away from Cristina, their child and other family members. 

She was also granted temporary sole physical and legal custody of their son. Law enforcement was ordered to remove their son from Tony's care and return him to Cristina. 

Cristina has since issued a statement supporting Tony -- saying, he's a "good husband and good father to our son."

"The current legal proceedings are part of a process to ensure that Tony will receive the help necessary to continue being the best possible husband and father, as well as to pursue his passion and career as a UFC champion fighter."

Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy Return to Court ... In College Bribery Case

3/15/2019 11:14 AM PDT

Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy showed up at the Downtown L.A. federal courthouse Friday morning, in connection with the college bribery case.

It's unclear why they had to return to the courthouse, but it's likely in connection with the $250k bond they had to post so Felicity could remain free pending trial. 

The feds say Huffman and Macy made a charitable contribution of $15k to participate in a college entrance cheating scheme on behalf of their eldest daughter. The indictment says the girl was given twice the amount of time to take the SAT as other students and the paid proctor agreed to secretly correct the exam afterward.

Macy has not been charged, but Huffman faces 5 years in prison if convicted.

They were mum on their way into the courthouse.   

Lori Loughlin Dropped by 'Fuller House' ... Also Loses Hallmark

3/14/2019 6:56 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

7:50 PM PT - Our intel is clear -- Lori's not coming back to "Fuller House." A well-placed production source tells TMZ, "Fuller House is not currently in production. Lori is a guest star and was during the previous 4 seasons and there are currently no plans for her to return to the 5th season." Translation ... she's gone from the show.

6:56 PM PT -- Hallmark has now addressed their show, "When Calls the Heart," which is now in the middle of airing its 6th season and stars Loughlin, saying, "The series will not air on Sunday, March 17. We are evaluating all creative options related to When Calls the Heart series."

With 7 episodes to go for the season, that must be a busy writers' room.

2:50 PM PT -- Tresemme has also announced they are cutting ties with Olivia. They stated, "We take this very seriously and are no longer working with Olivia."

12:35 PM PT -- Hallmark has cut ties with Lori Loughlin, a longtime collaborator with the company. In a statement Hallmark's parent company, Crown Media, says it is no longer working with Lori and has stopped development of all productions she's involved in, adding it was "saddened" by the allegations.

Hallmark's first tragic ending ever. That's a shame. 

12:08 PM PT -- Olivia's page with clothing brand Princess Polly is no longer active ... we've reached out to the company to see if the line has been completely shelved, but no word back so far. 

Lori Loughlin's alleged cheating is already costing her daughter, Olivia Jade -- 'cause Sephora just kicked the kid to the curb in the wake of the college admissions scandal.

A honcho for Sephora -- which had a partnership with Olivia -- tells TMZ, "After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately."

Olivia had a makeup partnership with the cosmetics chain that produced the Olivia Jade x Sephora palette. That page on Sephora's website has been 86'd.

Lori's youngest daughter has been catching the bulk of the backlash since her mom and dad were indicted for allegedly paying bribes to get their kids into USC. 

TMZ broke the story ... Olivia was on Rick Caruso's yacht in the Bahamas with his daughter when the indictment news broke ... Caruso -- the Chairman of USC's Board of Trustees -- tells us that Olivia is no longer on his yacht, and has since gone home.

USC has yet to decide Olivia's fate.

Drake Papa DOES Preach ... Can't Stop Bragging About Baby Boy!!!

3/15/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There's "God's Plan" and then there's Drake's plan ... telling everyone and their mother how much he adores his 1-year-old son, and the proof's in the baby pudding.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Drake and his baby mama, Sophie Brussaux, have a pretty remarkable relationship (ZERO drama) ... and the fact they can seamlessly co-parent has allowed him and his son, Adonis, to develop a super strong father-son relationship.

It's no wonder Drake just rolled out the red carpet for Sophie in Paris.

We're told Drake FaceTimes his son every day. He'd rather be with the baby, but Drizzy's touring schedule makes that extremely difficult.

Our sources say Drake regularly updates friends and family with pictures of his son. Even the screensaver on the rapper's phone, we're told, features Adonis. Showing him off is nothing new ... you'll recall the rapper recently got a tattoo of his son on his right forearm. 

As for Sophie ... we're told she couldn't be happier. Drake still sends private jets so they can fly to see him. Back home, our sources say Sophie's teaching Adonis multiple languages and exposing him to art. As you know ... Adonis is already Drake's little Picasso.

Keep fathering, Drake ... that's the new motto.

Lori Loughlin Daughters Won't Return to USC ... Can't Cope with the Bullying

3/14/2019 2:54 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lori Loughlin's daughters are not letting USC decide their fate, because they will NOT be returning to the University for fear of bullying ... sources connected to both daughters tell TMZ.

We're told 19-year-old Olivia and 20-year-old Isabella have made the decision to withdraw from the University. Our sources say they have the full support of their parents, Lori and Mossimo Giannulli, both of whom have been indicted in the college bribery scandal.

Our sources say the family feels certain, if the girls went back to USC, they would be "viciously bullied." So, the decision has been made.

As we reported, the indictment claims Lori and Mossimo paid $500,000 to have their daughters designated as recruits for the crew team at USC ... despite the fact they did not actually participate in crew. Mossimo allegedly sent action photos of their daughters on rowing machines to Rick Singer, the ringleader of the alleged scam, and he presumably sent them on to USC.

We're told Olivia and Isabella never really wanted to go to USC. Our sources say they liked the concept of school principally because of partying, and had their sights set on Arizona State University. That's why Mossimo sent an email saying he wanted to get his daughters "into a school other than ASU!"

Our sources say Olivia in particular "is a mess, despondent and feeling like it's the end of the world."  

We're told Olivia and Isabella will "lay low" and not try and enroll in another school ... at least not for a long while.
