Kylie Jenner Puts Skincare Game on Skates ... w/ Roller Rink Beauty Event

5/22/2019 7:13 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner is doing laps around the competition in the beauty game, which she illustrated perfectly during the launch for her new skincare brand ... basically, a roller skater's dream.

Kris Jenner's youngest hosted her mom, dad, sisters and a bunch of friends Tuesday night at the Goya Studios Sound Stage in Hollywood to celebrate the launch of Kylie Skin -- her latest beauty line. It was essentially a roller rink bash for adults ... and looked super fun.

Kylie caught a lot of the action from inside, and it's clear she had a theme -- pink and white hotties on four wheels going around and around. She also had some good grub on hand too -- everything from pizza to sushi ... plus, samples of her actual products.

While the event was truly a family affair -- Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Caitlyn and even her brother, Brandon, made appearances -- however, no sign of Travis here.

It appears he's on the road at the moment, but he was there in spirit ... his music was blasting in the background. 

Nipsey Hussle's Baby Mama All Signs Point to Showdown Over His Fortune

5/22/2019 5:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nipsey Hussle's first baby mama will object to the appointment of the rapper's brother to administer his estate, and might even ask that SHE be appointed administrator, if the hearing goes down as planned, and millions of dollars are on the line ... sources connected to the case tell TMZ. 

Sources connected to Tanisha Foster tell TMZ, she will not accept Sam Asghedom, Nipsey's brother, as the manager of the late rapper's fortune, which Sam estimates at $2 million. Sam filed legal docs, saying Nipsey died without a will, and he wants to be appointed the administrator of his brother's estate. A judge is set to rule on Sam's request June 10.

Under California law, Nipsey's children would share equally in his estate. In addition to 10-year-old Emani, the child Nipsey had with Tanisha, he left behind 2-year-old Kross, who's mother is Lauren London. So, each would get around $1 million, less fees and taxes.

Tanisha is fighting for custody of Emani, and if she's successful, she would have some power in handling the money and would probably be entitled to use some of it to provide for the child. A judge has temporarily blocked Tanisha from having physical custody of Emani ... the child is currently living with Nipsey's sister.

Our sources say Tanisha has tentatively decided to ask the probate judge to continue the hearing so she can get clarity on the custody case. We're told there is bad blood between Tanisha and Nipsey's family, and she will almost certainly end up objecting to Sam becoming the administrator. 

Cardi B I Want a 'Bocktails' TV Show ... And 'Bocktails' Booze

5/22/2019 6:33 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cardi B apparently wants in on the television biz, because she's just filed legal docs staking her claim.

Cardi wants to own the name, "Bocktails with Cardi B" -- in case you didn't know, bocktails is a play on cocktails.

As for the premise, according to the trademark documents, she's laying claim to "entertainment services in the nature of providing ongoing episodes for distribution via television and the Internet featuring celebrities and artists."

From the name, it sounds a lot like "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen."

She wants more than a show with the name, "Bocktails with Cardi B." She's asking for exclusivity on clothing, including shirts, t-shirts, sweatshirts, hooded sweatshirts, hats, caps, footwear, skirts, dresses, blouses, sweaters, pants and shorts."

And, there's more ... she wants to use the name for "alcoholic beverages, except beer and beverages containing beer."

Something against beer?

NFL's Tyrann Mathieu Targeted In $5 Mil Extortion Plot ... Officials Say

5/22/2019 8:04 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

NFL star Tyrann Mathieu was threatened by a relative -- "I want 1.5 million by Friday or I am going to kill all you all" -- this according to federal court documents. 

Officials claim 21-year-old Geourvon Keinell Sears tried to shake down the Kansas City Chiefs safety in April by threatening to contact TMZ with fake allegations of sexual misconduct if Tyrann didn't come up with the money. 

For the record, we were never contacted by Sears. 

At first, Sears' demand was $1.5 million -- but he later raised the number to $5 million, according to the documents filed in U.S. District Court in Louisiana. 

Officials say Sears contacted Mathieu by phone calls and also text messages. Mathieu's family members feared for their safety, according to the court docs. 

Sears was arrested on an extortion charge but was later released on $25,000 bond. He's due back in court next month. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison. 

Tyrann has reportedly made more than $31 mil in his NFL career and recently inked a 3-year, $42 million contract. 

We spoke with Tyrann's rep, Denise White, who described the matter as a "very private and personal family issue."

"He's dealing with a family member who is dealing with a mental health issue. Tyrann is fine. His family is fine. They are getting through."

Kodak Black Begs Judge, Let Me Go to S. Carolina ... I Got a Case There Too

5/22/2019 7:28 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kodak Black has criminal cases to deal with in multiple states, and his latest arrest in Miami is complicating things, big time ... so he's begging the judge for an assist.

As we've reported ... the rapper was arrested 11 days ago during the Rolling Loud festival, and though he was granted a pre-trial release -- if he can post a $500k bond -- the feds are appealing that and want to keep him behind bars.

Kodak's problem is he's also facing a serious felony charge in South Carolina for sexual misconduct, and needs to appear in court to stand trial. So, he's proposing a compromise to the federal judge in Florida ... let me out, but keep me under 24-hour surveillance while I'm traveling.

In new docs, the rapper says he still wants out on bond, and proposes a system of nonstop, round-the-clock supervision to ensure he makes all of his required court appearances ... and then gets back to Florida.

As we've told you ... federal prosecutors claim Kodak is too risky for bail due to his criminal history and want to him behind bars, but his legal team claims the feds don't have evidence to support that.

'Teen Mom 3' Star Mackenzie McKee Mom Rips Neighbor for Dog Report ... Swears Hank 'Never in Danger' from Storms

5/22/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Teen Mom 3" star Mackenzie McKee's neighbors have a grudge, and that's the only reason they called animal control claiming her dog was abandoned -- at least, according to Mackenzie's mom.

Angie Douthit tells TMZ ... the neighbors got pissed in the past about Mackenzie's Harlequin Great Dane, Hank, getting loose in their yard, which caused hard feelings between the households.

She says because of the past aggression they made sure Hank wouldn't get loose while Mackenzie was on a 6-day cruise in the Bahamas. Angie says she and her father were in charge of Hank and visited him every day to feed him and make sure he had plenty of water -- but insists the neighbors were just looking for any way to make Mackenzie look bad.

Angie says her dad covered the top of the pen with a huge tarp on the first day to make sure Hank wouldn't get wet in the rain. She says a few days later, they noticed someone had placed a wood pallet in the pen.

As we first reported ... the neighbors admit doing that so Hank wouldn't have to sit in mud. Angie, however, says the wood pallet might have done more harm because it was splintery.

She also says the neighbor's social media photo of all the poop in the pen is misleading ... because Great Dane's just poop a lot. Plus, she claims the mud made it look worse than it is.

As we reported ... animal control removed the dog Monday. Mackenzie told us that was only done due to tornado warnings in the area. Angie says she and her father were prepared to move Hank into the basement if a tornado had actually struck.

Witnesses claim Hank had been crying for 4 days, but Angie claims families in Miami, Oklahoma leave their dogs outside all the time and even in the rain.

As for Mackenzie ... she'll have to pay $80 to animal control for boarding the dog. Her return flight from the Bahamas was delayed, but she's planning to pick up Hank on Wednesday.

Margot Robbie The Perfect Sharon Tate in New Trailer ... Says Sister, Debra Tate

5/22/2019 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Debra Tate's very pleased with the new trailer for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" ... especially Margot Robbie's performance as her sister.

Critics and fans are getting their first good look at Margot as Sharon Tate now that the second trailer for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film has been released. Debra tells TMZ, from what she's seen, it looks like Margot knocked it out of the park.

As we've told you, Debra's been supportive of the movie's portrayal of her sister ... who was murdered by "Manson Family" members. She told us meeting with Tarantino, reading the script and even being on set set her at ease ... but she was still concerned about one particular scene.

At least she was until seeing the trailer.

Check it out ... at the 1:30 mark, Sharon goes to the theater to see a movie she's in and tells the ticket taker who she is. Debra tells us she was worried, while reading the script, the scene would make Sharon look conceited ... but she's relieved it doesn't come off that way at all.

Debra says, "Depending on how Margot played it, it could’ve appeared egotistical. But,  no, she did a beautiful job. Sharon did not have an egotistical bone in her body."

Debra adds ... "Margot captures Sharon's sweetness very nicely."

The movie got a standing ovation Tuesday at a Cannes screening -- and Debra says now that she's seen the new trailer, she's excited to see the full movie. Before it's July release, though, she's focusing on the parole board hearing next month for the Charles Manson associate, Bruce Davis.

She's still fighting in her sister's honor to keep "Manson Family" criminals locked up, and tells us she believes Davis is still violent and needs to stay behind bars.

Debra's organized a petition with 19,000 signatures for support -- and previously told us she feels the same way about Leslie Van Houten.

Fatboy SSE Busted for Weed After Traffic Stop in NJ

5/22/2019 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Fatboy SSE -- the comedic social media influencer co-starring with Master P in his "I Got the Hook Up" sequel -- hooked up with cops who busted him for marijuana and outstanding warrants.

According to cops in Jersey City, Fatboy was pulled over Monday night for a traffic violation. He was in the car with 2 other guys -- his manager and security guard -- and when cops ran his license, they discovered it was suspended. First mistake.

Second mistake? They found outstanding bench warrants ... which prompted a search of his car ... which is when cops say they found the weed.  

Cops arrested Fatboy -- government name Tyriq Kimbrough -- for 1 count of possession of weed and bail jumping for the 2 bench warrants. Adding insult to injury, cops also slapped him with tickets for failure to observe a signal and driving on the suspended license.

Fatboy -- who has more than 5.5 million Instagram followers -- remains in custody.

His management posted a message on his IG page about the arrest, saying ... "If you have not been able to reach him this is why."

Master P signed the comedic actor -- known for his hilarious IG skits -- for a role in "I Got the Hook Up 2" ... which comes out this summer. We're gonna recommend a limo, or at least Uber, for Fatboy's ride to the premiere.

Nipsey Hussle Alleged Killer Indicted by Grand Jury

5/21/2019 2:30 PM PDT

Nipsey Hussle's alleged killer, Eric Holder, has been indicted by a Grand Jury, and new charges have been added ... and this could have to do with a problem with the case.

The L.A. County District Attorney had previously charged Holder with 4 crimes, including premeditated murder. The D.A. decided to have the case revisited, this time by the Grand Jury, which indicted him on the 4 previous crimes -- murder, 2 counts of attempted murder, and possession of a firearm by a felon.

The Grand Jury added 2 new charges ... 2 counts of assault with a firearm for the victims who did not die.

As for why the D.A. chose to go to the Grand Jury when they had already charged Holder, the main function is to skip the preliminary hearing. The D.A.'s office will not say why they chose to jump the prelim -- where a judge must find probable cause of a crime in order to make the defendant stand trial -- but it's sometimes done if there's a problem with the evidence.

Holder allegedly shot and killed Nipsey in front of his store, The Marathon Clothing, on March 31.

TMZ broke the story ... Holder allegedly pistol-whipped a man one hour before Nipsey was murdered. Two women have submitted statements to the D.A.'s Office, saying Holder attacked their male friend. They say Holder accused their friend of selling him "laced marijuana."

Chris Rock Crossover to 'Saw' Makes Total Sense says Producer Will Packer

5/21/2019 5:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Rock comes from a dark place ... so his jump to the horror genre should come as no surprise, and it's exactly why producer Will Packer says he's anxious to see Chris revamp the "Saw" franchise.

We got Will out Monday at LAX and had to ask him about the famed funnyman signing up to executive produce the next "Saw" chapter ... slated to be released October 23, 2020. It's been 3 years since "Saw IV" was released and now the Emmy and Grammy-winning writer/stand-up comedian will add his own horror spin to the flick.

Check out the clip ... Will -- producer of "Straight Outta Compton," "Think Like a Man," "Girls Trip"  and many more hits -- says Chris' roots is what makes comedians and horror a perfect marriage.

Chris, BTW, will be stepping into a gold mine ... the "Saw" franchise grossed nearly $1 billion worldwide. The first "Saw" movie cost $1.2 million to make and earned a whopping $100 million.

Lots of dough to be made for sure, but Will makes one thing clear ... there's one specific comedian he does NOT wanna see dabble in horror. The thought of it alone is just ... scary.
