Le'Veon Bell Doesn't Report, Out For Season ... Forfeits $14.5 Million

11/13/2018 1:00 PM PST
Breaking News

Le'Veon Bell ain't playing for the Steelers this year ... and maybe never again -- 'cause the All-Pro RB just missed the deadline to report to the team.

Bell -- who's been holding out since the offseason in search of a new mega-deal with Pittsburgh -- had until 1 PM PT to sign his franchise tag.

But ... the deadline came and went with no Bell to be found.

As we previously reported ... Bell's been tearin' it up on jet skis and in nightclubs during his time away from the squad -- but most, including the team's owner, expected him to be back with the team today.

Bell, though, decided against it ... and will now forfeit ALL of the $14.5 MILLION the Steelers were set to pay him this season.

It's not like Pitt's exactly crying over the move ... James Conner's been killin' it in Bell's stead -- and teammates have ripped the RB for his holdout throughout the past few months.

In fact, even coach Mike Tomlin threw some shade Bell's way Tuesday ... saying if this so happens to be the last time he ever coaches Bell, "So be it."

'Fear the Walking Dead' Kid Actor Alexa Nisenson Rakes $30k for Just 5 Episodes

11/13/2018 1:01 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Alexa Nisenson's barely 12 years old but she's already got a very full piggy bank ... thanks to a fat check from her work on "Fear the Walking Dead." 

The kid actress -- who played Charlie in season 4 -- earned $30,000 for appearing in 5 episodes. If she crosses her fingers, things could be looking up in 2019. According to her minors contract, obtained by TMZ, Alexa could earn another $25k if she is picked up for season 5. AMC recently just picked it up for a fifth season.

Alexa's no stranger to Hollywood. She appeared in Ice Cube's "Fist Fight," starring Charlie Day and Tracy Morgan, and lent her voice in the kids' TV series "Summer Camp Island" but 'FTWD' is her most prominent role yet. That is until "Orphan Horse" is released next week. She stars alongside Jon Voight.

 

Ex-NHL Star Sheldon Souray Hit w/ Lawsuit ... Your Bad Dog Bit Me!!

11/13/2018 11:36 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Former NHL star Sheldon Souray's dog allegedly bit a young girl -- injuring her -- and now the stud defenseman is facing a lawsuit.

Souray played 13 seasons in the NHL -- for the Devils, Canadiens, Oilers, Stars and Ducks -- and was known for his ridiculously hard slap shot.

In the civil suit -- filed last week in L.A. County Court -- Souray is accused of failing to control his dog ... and as a result, the animal allegedly bit the kid in the hallway of her Beverly Hills apartment building in October 2017.

According to the lawsuit, Souray should've known about his dog's "unpredictable and violent/dangerous propensities."

Interesting to note ... 2 months after the alleged incident, Souray posted a picture of his dog on Instagram, with the caption ... "Dougie’s been in bad boy school for 6 weeks. Comes home next week. Gonna be a party."

It's unclear if Dougie is the dog involved in the alleged incident ... or if the alleged incident had anything to do with him being sent to "bad boy school."

The alleged victim is asking for over $25k from Souray ... but the exact amount is unclear.

We reached out to Souray ... so far, no word back.

Rob Kardashian We Played Blac Chyna in Child Support War ... But She Begs to Differ

11/13/2018 10:46 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

10:45 AM PT -- Sources connected to the litigation tell TMZ months ago a judge suspended Rob's entire obligation to pay any child support until he could evaluate Chyna's resources as well as Rob's, so for now, Chyna's getting $0 in child support. Rob Kardashian has gone into court to get a reduction in child support, but it's something he planned on doing for more than a year ... and it was all designed to get Blac Chyna to drop domestic violence allegations that could have cost him custody.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ, Rob and Chyna are now locked in a war over how much he has to pay to support 2-year-old Dream. As we reported, Rob agreed in September 2017 to pay her $20,000 a month in child support. He now says he's basically broke and she's rolling in the dough.

Our sources say, Rob agreed to pay $20k a month knowing that a judge would have reduced that amount significantly, but he needed Chyna to back off her claim he physically abused her -- aggressively hitting, shoving and pushing her to the ground during their relationship -- something that could have badly hurt him in their custody fight.

In return for Rob agreeing to pay $20k a month, Chyna dropped her domestic violence restraining order and agreed to give him 50/50 joint custody of their child. Our sources say Rob planned from the get-go to let some time pass, then go back into court and ask for a reduction in child support, claiming he has virtually no income. That's exactly what he has done.

Chyna's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, tells TMZ ...Chyna was NOT played and she knew Rob would probably go back into court for a reduction in support. Bloom says her client made her point and got what she wanted -- an agreement Rob would leave her alone. She also got him to agree not to post more revenge porn targeting her, something Bloom says has dogged Chyna to this day.

Bloom says Chyna never wanted to fight over custody and wanted Rob to be involved in Dream's life. She also claims Rob is pretending to be poor when he leads a lavish lifestyle. She says, "Rob has deliberately retreated from social media to suppress his income in order to reduce support. What kind of father plays games with supporting his own baby?"  

And, Bloom says, Chyna still has a separate, active civil case against Rob which raises the domestic violence issue.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Record Label's Out Nearly Half a Mil ... After Music Vid Shooting

11/13/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The shooting at the home for the filming of the Tekashi 6ix9ine's music video was a VERY expensive setback for the record label behind the project ... as in almost half a million dollars down the drain.

Sources tell TMZ ... Universal Music Group spent upwards of $480k to fund the video shoot that was supposed to feature Nicki Minaj and Kanye West ... before bullets shattered glass in the mansion and things then came to a screeching halt. 

It also looks like UMG might be eating this one -- we're told there are zero plans to reschedule or reshoot.

As for why the budget was so steep ... just look at what was done to the interior of the Bev Hills mansion for the shoot. Crew members placed multi-colored decals on lots of the windows, which was supposed to mimic 6ix9ine's hair. Our sources say some of that money also went to SFX, lighting and, of course, salaries.

We broke the story ... Tekashi, Kanye and co. found themselves under attack Thursday night after 2 gunmen opened fire on the Bev Hills estate. Surveillance footage captured the assailants firing off multiple rounds at the house. Nicki was not there at the time of the shooting.

Cops are looking for the shooters -- but this one's gotta hurt where it hits record labels most ... the wallet.

11/13/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Pauly D and Swedish DJ Alesso are among the celebs banding together to help the celeb photographer battling to overcome brutal injuries suffered in a hit and run.

The "Jersey Shore" star donated $2k to help cover Corentin Villemeur's extensive medical bills after he got run over last week outside Avalon nightclub in Hollywood. As we first reported, YouTube star Lele Pons witnessed her friend enter a crosswalk and get hit by an Acura she says ran a red light.

Alesso dropped a whopping $14k into the GoFundMe account for Corentin, and took it a step further by putting the call out to his 5 million followers on social media. DJ Marshmello donated $5k directly. Soccer star Jozy Altidore, "The Fosters" star Maia Mitchell, Bad Bunny's team and creator of Halo Top Ice Cream Justin Woolverton each donated $2k.

Corentin was left with 10 broken ribs, bleeding on the brain, bruised lungs, a ruptured spleen, broken shoulder and a broken leg. He remains in the ICU, and police haven't arrested the suspect yet.

A-Rod Lists Hollywood Hills Bachelor Pad ... After Condo Buy w/ J Lo

11/12/2018 1:24 PM PST

Alex Rodriguez is shedding one of the last remnants of his bachelor life now that he's shacking up with Jennifer Lopez in NYC.

A-Rod's listed his Hollywood Hills spread for a cool $6.5 million after buying it from Meryl Streep in 2014 for $4.8 mil. It's a beaut too -- the two-story architectural wonder features a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, a chef's kitchen and a courtyard-style backyard with a pool and spa.

The property is known as the Honnold & Rex Research House, as it was built in the '50s as part of an architectural research program that encouraged inventive designs. Translation: It's pretty unique and cool-looking. 

Luckily for the ex-MLB star, he's got a sweet new pad with his bae in Manhattan -- a swanky high-rise condo they swooped up earlier this year for a little over $15 mil.

Nothing says "it's serious" like real estate commitments.

Kim & Kanye Hire Private Firefighters ... Save Neighbors' Homes Too

11/12/2018 9:36 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting major props from their neighbors for staving off the devastating Woolsey wildfire ... with the help of their private team of firefighters.

TMZ broke the story, the blaze started to creep up on Kim and Kanye's Hidden Hills mansion Friday after a mandatory evacuation of the area. The couple's home sits at the end of a cul-de-sac and borders a field -- meaning if their place went up in flames, it would start a domino effect on the whole neighborhood. 

Sources tell us Kim and Kanye hired a private team to battle the flames on their property. The team was armed with hoses, and also tirelessly dug ditches to create a fire break.

Ultimately, they successfully saved the Wests' $60 million house... and countless others on the block. We spoke with a few neighbors who are thanking the Wests for putting a team on the front lines and saving their homes.

As we reported -- Kim posted video of the fires as she flew into L.A. Thursday -- the family stayed at a nearby hotel during the evacuations.

EXCLUSIVE

There's an online bidding war about to erupt, and "Dexter" fans will have the opportunity to take home Michael C. Hall's famous stalker getup from the psychological thriller ... if they have the cash. 

The Dexter Morgan stalker ensemble from the hit Showtime series is hitting the auction block Dec. 1, with the online merchant, Prop Store, valuing it between $2,000 and $3,000.

For TV buffs with deeper pockets, there's an opportunity to bring home some historic "Star Trek" memorabilia ... because the costumes from American TV's first interracial kiss are also heading to auction. 

The togas worn by William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols when they kissed on a 1968 episode of "Star Trek," the first interracial kiss on American TV, are valued between $60,000 and $80,000. Just be ready to outbid the Trekkies. 

There are tons of other cool Hollywood memorabilia up for auction ... a bag of blue sky meth from "Breaking Bad" (valued at $3,000), Robin Williams' egg spaceship from "Mork & Mindy" ($30,000), Howard Stern's Fartman uniform from the 1992 MTV VMAs ($8,000), and Laura Palmer's red casket from the cult series "Twin Peaks" ($3,000). 

Tekashi69 Check Out My New Iced-Out Chompers

11/11/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

This might be the reason Tekashi69 keeps his cool with bullets flying around him almost constantly ... his mouth is full of ice! 

The rapper hit up celeb jeweler Johnny Dang for his newest pair ... and the chompers are off the chain. We're talking 18-karat white gold with 585 diamonds in a special honeycomb setting.

This smile on the rocks cost 6ix9ine a cool $45,000. 

They're Tekashi's first grills since he got veneers ... so he had to get a new molding made, and Johnny went the extra mile to ensure the rapper's mouth shines like the sun.

Johnny met Tekashi in Los Angeles Monday, traveled home to Houston and finished up the grills in less than 24 hours, and then flew back out to the West Coast Thursday for a special delivery. 

It's interesting ... Tekashi got the grills hours before his music video shoot with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj was halted by gunfire ... and, we're guessing the mouth full of ice helped Teskashi6ix9ine keep his cool under fire.

Sorry for saying that twice.

Annabella Sciorra Construction Co. Sued For Cementing Her Condo!

11/11/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Two construction companies that worked on 'Sopranos' star Annabella Sciorra's home are getting sued for allegedly causing more than $100k in damages.

Central Construction Management and B&Z Industries worked on Annabella's condo back in December 2015, and according to the lawsuit, they screwed up by allowing wet cement into her crib.

Annabella -- who also starred in "Jungle Fever" and "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" -- filed a claim with her insurance company, Pacific Indemnity, and got $112,034.97 for the damages. Now Pacific Indemnity is trying to recoup that dough by suing the construction companies.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Pacific says it's pretty clear the blame lies squarely on the construction companies due to negligence and failure to provide reasonable protection. 

Annabella made headlines last year as one of Harvey Weinstein's most vocal accusers. Before that, she was probably best known as Tony Soprano's, ummm ... ill-fated mistress, Gloria. Spoiler alert!

The role scored Annabella an Emmy nomination.

Tupac Steamy Letters to Teen Crush for Sale

11/10/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tupac was spitting game back in high school just like everyone else ... and now his steamy letters can be yours for a small fortune.

The folks over at Moments in Time are selling 2 handwritten letters for a cool $15k. They're from the rapper to a teen crush when he was a 14-year-old freshman in 1985 at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Baltimore. They're addressed to Averel, who at the time was the same age.

The first letter reveals a shy Tupac introducing himself to Averel. Tupac surfaces in the second one as emboldened ... professing his wants and needs, if ya catch our drift. We're told Averel, who sold the letters to Moments in Time, was not impressed by Tupac's game.

Not the first time Tupac's been brutally honest on paper. You'll recall he confessed why he dumped Madonna in a 2004 letter that later brought her tons of drama.
