Aaron Schlossberg 'Racist Rant' Lawyer Says He's No Racist ... I Love Immigrants!!

5/22/2018 11:08 AM PDT
Breaking News

Aaron Schlossberg -- the attorney who threatened to call ICE on Fresh Kitchen employees who were speaking Spanish -- says ya got him all wrong, America ... he actually LOVES diversity and immigrants!

One week after he became public enemy #1, Schlossberg is issuing an apology ... of sorts. He says seeing the viral video of himself helped him see "the manner in which I expressed myself is unacceptable and is not the the person I am."

Schlossberg claims, "What the video did not convey is the real me. I am not racist."

Umm ... ok.

He added, "One of the reasons I moved to New York is precisely because of the remarkable diversity offered in this wonderful city." Schlossberg also claims "immigrants and diversity of cultures" are why he loves America.

All the tweeted apology was missing was "viva la raza" -- but his apparent 180 only comes after cultural diversity partied outside the NY lawyer's apartment building all weekend ... led by the tunes of mariachi music.

Aaron Hernandez's Fiancee Pregnant ... But, Who's the Dad?

5/22/2018 12:03 PM PDT
Breaking News

The woman who was engaged to Aaron Hernandez -- the mother of his daughter -- has announced she's pregnant ... but the big question -- who's the daddy?  

Shayanna Jenkins broke the news on Instagram ... saying, "Many of you have had speculated that I may be expecting another miracle which is very accurate."

FYI, Hernandez died in April 2017 after he hanged himself in his prison cell. In theory, he could have frozen his sperm for her to impregnate herself at a later date.

If Jenkins is in a new relationship, she hasn't gone public with it -- in fact, the last time she posted a photo of a man on her IG it was Aaron Hernandez.

Still, Jenkins is shedding SOME light on her pregnancy ... saying, "I wanted to have a moment for myself alone with my daughter ... we are beyond excited about the new addition and chapter we will soon begin."

Jenkins did not reveal how far along she is or when the baby is due -- but did say she's having a girl. 

"I couldn’t be a luckier woman to have such a perfect little girl that’s prepared to become the best big sister , and even more blessed to welcome another babygirl to our home."

"BabyG we are very excited to meet you !!! Mommy and sissy will continue to wait patiently for your arrival."

Hernandez left a suicide note to Jenkins calling her his "soul-mate" and telling her that she would be "rich" after his death.

We reached out to Jenkins to find out more -- but so far, we haven't heard back.

EXCLUSIVE

Bishop Curry is getting major love in New York City after preaching about it at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding. 

We got the bishop in NYC Tuesday, where he was making the media rounds after his powerful sermon, hypothesizing on a world where "love is the way." He was getting swarmed by fans on the street ... people asking questions, and wanting selfies.

Our photog asks if he thought he'd get this much attention prior to his Royal Wedding appearance -- he says no, but doesn't mind making folks a little happy because of it. That jibes with what he told us Monday ... that his message of love wasn't sappy BS

He's also got some advice for any normies who aren't of Royal descent that might be tying the knot. Yep ... you guessed it.

Lil Xan Breaks Down His Mental Breakdown

5/22/2018 10:37 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Xan says he suffers from anxiety and that's what everyone saw on display when he keyed his whip ... but he's good now, and so is the G-Wagon.

We got the rapper Tuesday at LAX, and asked what led to his mental breakdown a couple weeks ago. You'll recall, LX kicked the crap outta his brand new Mercedes SUV and keyed the ride -- all while going off about being a slave to his management. He also bitched about having zero control of all the money he's making.

Lil Xan's definitely looking and feeling better now. He especially dug the Audrey Hepburn compliment our camera guy gave him. But, it's interesting, as LX started breaking down what drove him to key his car, his manager yelled from off-camera ... warning him not to say anything stupid.

Xan kept his cool and spilled some tea about his mental health.

Rich the Kid He Forced Me to Have 3 Abortions ... Estranged Wife Claims

5/22/2018 9:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rich the Kid's estranged wife claims he attacked her numerous times and forced her to have abortions during their marriage.

Antonette Willis just filed new docs in their divorce, and in them she says the rapper got violent with her so many times ... it was common for police to be called to their house. On one occasion she says she had followed him to a hotel where he was meeting a woman -- and when he came home the next day they got into a fight.

Antonette says he grabbed her and hit her ... and things escalated when Rich's family came over, because his sister broke a window.

Rich and Antonette have 2 toddlers -- 1-year-old Queen and 2-year-old King -- but in the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she also got pregnant several other times. She claims Rich forced her to have at least 3 abortions because he didn't want any more kids.

Antonette says she has zero income, and has been forced to move in with family back in Georgia. Meanwhile, she claims Rich has moved his new gf, Tori Brixx, into the family home in L.A.

She's demanding spousal support and child support.

On a somewhat more petty note about the lifestyle to which she'd become accustomed -- Antonette bitches that Rich would always fly first class, while sticking her in coach.

Tekashi69 Charged with Assaulting a Cop ... After Traffic Arrest

5/22/2018 6:38 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Tekashi69 was charged with assaulting a police officer this week in New York after a traffic violation quickly escalated ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Tekashi was approached by an officer in Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn Sunday while his SUV was illegally parked in front of a fire hydrant and, when asked to produce a license ... the cop found it was suspended.

Tekashi was taken in to a Brooklyn precinct to be given a desk appearance ticket, but police soon learned there was an open warrant for his arrest in Texas. We're told that's when they cuffed him and tried taking him into custody ... but not before he allegedly got grabby.

Cops say Tekashi squeezed a lieutenant's hand while being apprehended, squeezing it so hard apparently that it caused swelling. He was booked for assaulting a police officer -- a felony -- and unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

He was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court and released on $25k bail.

The New York Post broke the story of Tekashi's arrest.

Publix Refuses to Put 'Cum' On Son's Cake ... Mom Pissed

5/22/2018 6:49 AM PDT

Most people believe Summa Cum Laude is an honor ... Publix grocery store believes it's obscene. 

Case in point ... this cake.

A woman in South Carolina ordered the tasty treat online to celebrate her son graduating from his homeschool program with a 4.79 GPA ... earning Summa Cum Laude honors.

But, when she sent a friend to pick up the cake, the word "Cum" was edited out -- an apparent violation of the grocery store's obscenity policy!!!!

"My son was humiliated," the woman posted on her Facebook page ... "I seriously couldn't make this crap up!!!"

"How utterly ridiculous and I will be speaking to a manager for a refund. Shame on you Publix for turning an innocent Latin phrase into a total embarrassment for having to explain to my son and others (including my 70 year old mother) about this joke of a cake."

FYI, "Summa Cum Laude" is a Latin phrase that means "with highest honor."

Just make sure your safe search is on if you put it in Google ...

Mario Batali Double-Crossed and Stiffed Women's Group

5/22/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

6:14 AM PT -- A spokesperson for Batali's brand licensing company tells TMZ, "There have been no sales of Mario Batali sauces by our licensee since December 2017 as retailers discontinued carrying the product at that time. Mario Batali has received no royalty or payment of any kind since that time. We apologize for any confusion and have asked our licensee to take down the website.”Mario Batali's website claims it struck a deal to donate proceeds from its sauces to a women's group ... but TMZ's learned the organization hasn't received a dime because no deal was ever struck.

We noticed this huge banner posted on mariobatalisauces.com's landing page back in December 2017 shortly after sexual misconduct allegations first surfaced against the disgraced chef. The banner claims the makers of Batali's sauces are donating its proceeds to Women Employed, hailed as one of the nation's most successful advocates for working women.

But, we checked with the organization and a rep tells us, "Summer Garden Food Manufacturing reached out to WE last year about donating proceeds from the sale of its Mario Batali-labeled products to our organization. At no time did Women Employed have a partnership, agreement, or discussion with Chef Mario Batali."

The statement continues, "While WE appreciates that Summer Garden Food Manufacturing reached out to us, this donation did not move forward because distributors did not want to be associated with Batali and pulled the product from their shelves.”

As we reported ... Batali was dumped by his partners on the heels of new claims of sexual misconduct. We reached out to Batali's sauce makers to ask for an explanation for the banner, so far no word back.

T.I. Someone Will Pay For Smearing My Image!!

5/22/2018 7:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

T.I.'s demanding someone pay up and take the fall for what he calls "trumped-up charges" from the arrest at his gated community ... because the case is ruining the image he worked hard to rehabilitate.

We got the rapper leaving Craig's Monday evening in WeHo, and at first we wanted to get his thoughts on Care2's online petition to get his misdemeanor charges dropped. As we reported, T.I. was arrested last week for simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness after getting into it with the security guard at his gated community. 

Tip later butted heads with cops in jail when he tried to get an explanation from the cop who arrested him.

T.I. told us he appreciates the petition but admitted he's more focused on something else -- PAYBACK ... presumably from police or the security company.
