The charge is a misdemeanor and was filed Wednesday in Vegas. The criminal complaint -- obtained by TMZ -- states Larissa, "Did willfully and unlawfully use force or violence against or upon the person of her spouse."

TMZ broke the story ... Larissa was arrested last Friday after she allegedly punched her estranged husband, Colt Johnson, in the face. Colt suffered a bloody lip as a result of the attack. 

Johnson told cops Larissa became enraged -- accusing him of cheating -- after she discovered he had purchased porn. According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- Colt said Larissa had downed half a bottle of antidepressants and was suicidal. 

Larissa claimed Colt was the aggressor, scratching her in the face and on her torso ... but after their investigation, cops determined Larissa was the aggressor. 

Blac Chyna Fight with Alexis Skyy Was All Over Rob Kardashian

1/18/2019 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

When Blac Chyna and Alexis Skyy almost came to blows it was squarely over Rob Kardashian, and a scolding Chyna felt was long overdue ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to both women tell us BC did not simply invite Alexis over for a friendly chat during a house party last weekend. Her true goal was setting Alexis straight about her past interactions with Rob ... which Chyna found inappropriate.

We're told Alexis and Rob have known each other since way back in 2016 when he was still with Chyna -- who, we're told, thinks Alexis was a little too friendly with her baby daddy.

Our sources say Chyna wanted to finally clear the air.

Contrary to how Alexis portrayed it on social media, we're told she was the one who started acting wild when Chyna brought up the past -- and that's why BC threw the drink.

Our sources also say Alexis only started barking about a smackdown when her male friend showed up, and they'd been tossed from the party.

Despite the showdown with Chyna -- Alexis and Rob seem to be rekindling whatever they had going on years ago. He's called her his "WCW" and she seems to be totally down

Hope Rob looks good in referee stripes -- round 2 is coming, we suspect.

EXCLUSIVE

Ray J rang in his 38th birthday with the best gift possible -- a couple of new 4-wheel treats for himself and his wife, Princess Love ... for which he spared no expense. 

Sources close to the R&B singer tell TMZ ... Ray went car shopping Wednesday at one of the best pit stops for the filthy rich -- Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. in Scottsdale, AZ, where he was given the VIP treatment by none other than CEO Craig Jackson.

Jackson guided Ray on a tour of the facility along with his movie producer pal, RD Whittington, where they saw just about every type of classic car you can imagine.

By the end of it, Ray was ready to buy and we're told he went with something a little more modern than a Model T -- like a 2018 Mercedes-Benz Maybach and 2019 Lincoln Navigator! Total cost ... a cool $410,000. Easy money, if you're RJ.

Our sources say the Maybach was the pricier whip of the two, running him $320k, while the Lincoln cost $90k. Of course, he couldn't help but pose with his new prized possessions.

Like they say ... treat yourself.

Ex-'L&HH' Star Benzino Pleads Guilty In Felony Drug Case

1/17/2019 12:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Former "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Benzino has copped a plea deal in his felony drug case out of Georgia, and avoided jail time as a result ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for the Cobb County District Attorney's Office tells TMZ ... Raymond Scott (Benzino's real name) pled guilty to all 3 charges he was facing Thursday morning. We're told he was sentenced to 2 years probation and fined $500 ... plus surcharges. 

We broke the story ... the music producer was arrested in January 2017 after cops raided his ATL apartment and found drugs inside. He was charged with felony possession of THC oil gummies (22 grams), felony possession of 6 MDMA pills, and misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of weed. 

We talked to Benzino about the case last month, and he told us the search warrant cops used to get into his pad was illegal ... even though a judge signed off on it. He was adamant that racist police officers were behind the trumped-up charges, and at the time ... told us he was gonna fight it in court.

If he'd been convicted on all charges during his trial, he would've faced up to 15 years in prison. Looks like he had a change of heart.

'Celebrity Big Brother' New Cast Making $$$ame Amount ... To Start Season 2

1/17/2019 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The new batch of celebs who'll be living in the 'Big Brother' house for another season of drama are filling with one thing in common -- starting salaries ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the contacts for all 12 stars in season 2 of "Celebrity Big Brother" tell us each of them will rake in $100k ... just for entering the house. The winner can walk away with an additional $250k.

In other words, Anthony Scaramucci isn't more important than Dina Lohan this year ... at least not from the jump, money-wise.

Our production sources also tell us the houseguests had been sequestered in separate hotel rooms for 4 days prior to entering the house Wednesday. We're told CBS brass didn't want anyone in the cast knowing who else was set to appear until the premiere.

Other celebs set to appear on 'CBB' include Natalie Eva Marie, Ryan Lochte, Joey Lawrence, Kato Kaelin, Lolo Jones, Tom Green, Kandi Burruss, Tamar Braxton, Jonathan Bennett and Ricky Williams.

Side note ... the American version of 'CBB' doesn't pay nearly as much as its U.K. counterpart. Just look at what Speidi made, not to mention Ray J. Big difference.

Jenelle Evans Husband Denies Threatening Woman with a Gun

1/16/2019 1:24 PM PST
Exclusive Details

1:24 PM PT -- A rep for David Eason refutes the details of this weekend's encounter, telling us he did confront the woman ... but never threatened to shoot her, nor was he carrying a gun. We're told Dave noticed the same woman snooping around their property and tampering with their mailbox two days prior, and drove up to her this time on his ATV. The rep tells us all he said to her was that nothing was for sale when she said she was a realtor looking for property.

Jenelle Evans' husband, David Eason, allegedly threatened to shoot and kill a woman who briefly stopped in front of his property ... TMZ has learned.

Real estate agent Sandra Britt tells us she was cruising through Jenelle and David's neighborhood last weekend in Riegelwood, NC looking for a rental property for her daughter. She says she paused for a moment in front of the 'Teen Mom' stars' home to admire it ... particularly its new black gate.

Britt says she was quickly on her way -- but she claims Eason came racing up the street behind her on an ATV and pulled up beside her. She claims he asked, "What the mother f*** are you looking at my house for?"

She claims he then put his hand on what appeared to be a gun in a holster on his waist and said, "That's right. I got a gun, I will shoot you." She says David then took a pic of her license plate, and then bolted. 

Britt tells us she tried to report the incident to police, but was told nothing could be done because the altercation happened on a public highway. She's planning to file a report with the Sheriff's Department soon.

We've reached out to Eason, but no word back yet.

Worth noting ... David does love his guns. Just last month the Secret Service paid him a visit after he tagged President Trump in a social media post flaunting his arsenal of weapons and ammo.

Rob Kardashian 'L&HH' Star Alexis Says He Can Get it!!! Shots Fired at Blac Chyna

1/14/2019 7:54 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian shoots, Rob Kardashian scores! 

Blac Chyna's ex is catching the eye of 'Love & Hip Hop' star Alexis Skyy after shouting her out with a #WCW post ... on Monday, mind you. Sources close to Alexis tell us she saw Rob's Snapchat, and she's definitely feeling him too.

In fact, Skyy was so open to hanging with Rob, she was at his house just a few hours after he posted the tribute to her.

Seems like Rob has had a thing for Alexis for a while. He captioned the Snap, "MY WCW ... I'VE BEEN WANTING YOU FOR SO LONG.." 

Alexis is already trying to make nice with the Kardashian clan -- after Rob's post, she started following Kris, Kim, Kendall, Kylie and Kourtney on IG. 

The timing of Rob's post is super interesting because Alexis and Chyna had major beef over the weekend. Considering Rob rarely posts on social media these days ... it seems like he broke his silence simply to stick it to his ex.

Rob and Chyna are locked in a bitter child support war -- but Alexis seems willing and able to step into the middle of it.
