Chris Brown
Bball Battery Case Closed ... Just Like That

In the blink of an eye, Chris Brown is no longer wanted for battery. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the guy who accused Brown of punching him early Monday morning during a basketball game in Vegas called the cops on Tuesday and told them he wanted to drop the case. He did not explain why.  At that point it was a no-brainer ... cops closed the case.  Brown just settled a lawsuit over a previous fight during a pickup basketball game at an L.A. gym.

Travis Barker
Hittin' Skins With UFC's Arianny Celeste

Travis Barker has decided to enter the UFC ... sorta ... 'cause he's dating the league's most famous ring girl, Arianny Celeste.  Sources close to the couple tell us ... the two have been dating for several months. We're told they met at one of Travis' concerts and the sparks flew from there.   Ever since, we're told they've been "inseparable" ... and Travis is telling friends he thinks she could be "the one."  In fact, Travis recently introduced Arianny to his kids -- which is a pretty HUGE step. Mazel! 

Rosie O'Donnell
Shows Up in Court For Custody Battle

Rosie O'Donnell just showed up at a New York City courthouse to begin fighting her custody battle in front of a judge.  Rosie wasn't talkative but showed resolve as she entered the building. TMZ broke the story ... Rosie's wife, Michelle Rounds, claims Rosie indulges in alcohol and weed to the point she is not capable of taking care of their 2-year-old daughter Dakota ... it's a stark contrast to the various pics we've seen of Rosie and her daughter. For her part, Rosie says Michelle is a liar whose end game is squeezing money out of her. Michelle's lawyer will be in court, asking the judge to order Rosie to submit to random drug testing until the custody matter is resolved. Rosie is asking the judge to enforce the prenup -- which has a confidentiality clause -- and gag Michelle. 

B.B. King
Doctor Claims No Signs Of Mistreatment

The daughter of blues legend B.B. King is WRONG ... her dad is not being grossly mistreated by his manager -- this according to King's own doctor who says he's not being mistreated at all. B.B.'s daughter claimed his manager, Laverne Toney, was ignoring clear signs of medical distress and insinuated money was the end game.  But we just got a statement from a lawyer hired by Toney, who claims to rep B.B. King. The lawyer included a statement from B.B.'s doctor of 10 years, Dr. Darin Brimhall, who says, "The care and treatment that Mr. King has received, and continues to receive, is medically appropriate and I have seen no signs of any mistreatment of Mr. King." What the lawyer DOESN'T say is interesting. B.B.'s daughter says her dad is at death's door, and the doctor doesn't dispute that. 

Floyd Mayweather -- Baby Mama Sues for $20 Mil ... He's a Despicable Liar

Floyd Mayweather could lose tens of millions of dollars from his big payday if his baby mama gets her way ... because she's just filed a lawsuit claiming he ruined her with lies to save his own ass. Josie Harris, who has 3 kids with Floyd, claims he lied through his teeth in an interview with Katie Couric just 2 weeks before the big fight ... when he claimed Josie was in a drug-fueled rage and he had to "restrain" her during their infamous 2010 domestic violence incident. Point of fact ... Floyd was convicted of domestic violence and spent two months in jail. Josie recounts her terror in the lawsuit, explaining how she and Floyd had broken up ... but he flew into a jealous rage that night, broke into her home and viciously attacked her while she was sleeping on her couch ... and her kids saw part of the beating. Harris says she is now labeled a drug addict thanks to Mayweather's lies -- and was embarrassed and humiliated on a global scale.   Her lawyer, Dan Friedlander, writes in the lawsuit -- Floyd's lies to Couric "were knowingly fabricated in order to hype Mayweather's upcoming fight with Pacquiao, to avoid bad press by deflecting responsibility for beating the mother of his children." Harris wants in excess of $20 million. 

Justin Bieber Still Thirsty ... For a Sip of Selena

Solange Knowles -- It's Hard to Fight Jay Z in That Dress

It would be tough to punch and kick your brother-in-law when you're wearing ... whatever the hell Solange Knowles wore Monday night to the Met Gala. Hard to believe -- but it's been a year since Beyonce's sister famously went ballistic and attacked Jay Z in an elevator ... during an after party for last year's gala.  Meanwhile, Bey stole the whole damn night when she showed up in a ridiculous sheer nude-colored dress. Damned if she was gonna let Solange steal the headlines this year.

Kardashians -- We're Looking for a Nicer Rack Than Sears

The Kardashians and Sears are parting ways ... TMZ has learned, and sources connected with the family say they're bailing because they believe the department store is a sinking ship. The Kardashians and Sears struck a big deal back in 2011 for the Kardashian Kollection, which features all sorts of apparel and jewelry.    By all accounts, the venture was successful. The best evidence we could find ... in 2013 the Kardashian fashion empire raked in $600 million and the family got a $30 million cut.  We've learned the deal ended earlier this year and the store has been selling off the remaining items, and recently the store has been pulling the items from the shelves. Sears tells TMZ the parting of ways was mutual, but our Kardashian sources say the family felt Sears wasn't stable, having closed over 200 stores last year alone and suffering a $159 million loss in the last quarter of 2014. We're told the Kardashians have made a new deal with a major retailer and they will announce the partnership soon.

Miley Cyrus -- New Home, Home on the Range

Miley Cyrus is reconnecting with her Tennessee roots ... she just bought a $5 million ranch in the outskirts of L.A. County. Miley is now the proud owner of a 5 1/2 acre estate in super exclusive Hidden Hills, complete with a riding arena, a 10 stall barn, a chicken coop and a vineyard with 550 grape vines. The ranch-style home is 6500 square feet and tucked safely inside a gated community. We're told Miley was looking for security after 3 break-ins at her Toluca Lake home in just a little more than a year. It's ranch living, L.A. style. The Altman bros from "Million Dollar Listing L.A." and Nate Smith repped Miley. We couldn't reach them for more details.
