Damon Dash

Judge Sides With Ex-Wife

... You've Got A Weed Problem

59 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

1008-dash-roy-tmz-getty-01Damon Dash was shut down in court Thursday during a custody hearing for his two kids, and a judge made it very clear ... Damon hurt his chances by smoking too much pot. 

Dash wanted an LA judge to drop the monitored visits he currently has with seven-year-old Tallulah for regular visitation and overnight stays. Dash's ex-wife Rachel Roy claims he smokes too much weed around their kids ... and during one visit they ate Damon's pot-laced cake and rice krispies.

In the end, the judge agreed with Rachel. He upheld the monitored visits and ordered Damon stay away from the green stuff for 24 hours before each visit.

We're told Damon was extremely upset and went off on the judge and was almost dragged out of the court. Big difference from 24 hours ago, when he was still optimistic about his chances.

1008-justin-bieber-tmz-01Justin Bieber and his team are sending a strong message -- the nude photos of him published this week invaded his privacy, and anyone who posted them should take them down immediately.

TMZ has confirmed Bieber's legal team has sent multiple cease and desist letters to news outlets that published the pics, saying remove 'em or else. They claim the photos were taken without Bieber's knowledge. They show a naked Bieber in Bora Bora ... right before jumping into a pool.

We're told his team will sue if the sites don't remove the pics ASAP. 


Raft Fighting Sisters

We Might Get Fired

Over Viral Video

10/8/2015 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

The sisters whose river rafting brawl video went viral are blaming their violent, yet hysterical fight on booze and bitchiness -- and say it could end up costing them their jobs. 

Sisters/sparring partners Jessica and Jasmine Boling tell TMZ their rafting expedition down the Nantahala River in NC went south when they squabbled over who was going to guide the raft.

It also didn't help that they'd been drinking earlier. They say the fight continued long after the clip ends ... and Jasmine had to be dropped off mid-river because she was too wasted and aggro. 

While they eventually hugged it out ... the real problem is they work for the company they were rafting with during the fight. Even though they weren't on the clock, they tell us Big Creek Expeditions isn't stoked about the bad pr ... so they could get fired.

A Big Creek rep tells us they're still deciding what, if anything, to do to the sisters -- who claim they're normally "really sweet." We're sure.



Drake & Serena

We're Not Engaged

10/8/2015 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008_drake_serena_williams_tmzThere was no "I do" ... there was no bended knee ... there was no proposal -- because Drake and Serena Williams are NOT engaged to be married ... this according to a rep for the rapper.

The Internet was buzzing this morning with rumors that Drake had popped the question to the tennis star and she accepted ... but it just ain't true. 

Drake's rep tells us, "The rumor is completely untrue."

The two have been spending a lot of time together lately -- and finally busted out the PDA last month ... so, it's probably not entirely out of the question. But for now, pump the brakes on that wedding talk. 

Ben Carson

Dumb Reporters Make Me Chuckle

... Not School Shootings

10/8/2015 2:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Ben Carson says his puzzling laughter after saying he would have bum rushed the Oregon community college shooter ... had nothing to do with nerves or him being insensitive to victims.

Carson was in NYC outside the FOX News building -- where it originally went down on FOX & Friends -- and we asked what was really behind his chuckling. Remember, he did it again ... when we raised the shooting topic with him later that day.

Check it out, Carson tells us the blame lies with reporters and their questions, not himself. We went back and checked -- doesn't seem like a funny question, but everyone hears things differently.

Also, one guess what happened as BC walked away from our photog today. We'll try not to take it personally.

Video Of Stabbing

Train Hero Was Fighting 3 Guys

breaking news

Crazy footage has surfaced showing the wild street brawl that resulted in the stabbing of French terror train hero Spencer Stone ... in which you can see he was fighting at least 3 other men.  

The fight was caught on video by a surveillance camera at a nearby liquor store in Sacramento -- you can see Stone (reportedly the bigger man in the white shirt) swinging wildly at the other fighters. 

At one point, you can see one the fighters strike Stone in the chest area with what appears to be a weapon -- and his shirt almost immediately begins to turn red from the blood. 

Stone was hospitalized with serious injuries -- but now officials say he's in stable condition and he's expected to survive. 

Cops also say alcohol was a factor in the fight and insist the fight is in NO WAY connected to the terrorism incident in France. 

Investigators are currently checking out 2 nightclubs in the area for information on the suspects. 

Story developing ...

Wahlberg and Bieber

Now That's a Package Deal!

10/8/2015 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's like the Obi-Wan and Luke Skywalker of men's undies coming together -- Mark Wahlberg and Justin Bieber ... chilling in Bev Hills ... fully clothed. Sorry.

Bieber -- fresh off the jet from Bora Bora -- was strolling with Hailey Baldwin on Wednesday when they bumped into Wahlberg. Mark gave Justin a few attaboy taps on the shoulder during their brief chat, but we have no clue what they bro'd down about.

Of course, they both famously modeled Calvins -- 20-something years apart. We'd like to imagine JB said something all Star Wars-y like, "Now I am the master!"

But we know that didn't happen ... 'cause Wahlberg woulda knocked him out. 


President Obama

Come Party with Jamie Foxx and Me

... For $10,000/Ticket!

10/8/2015 8:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


President Obama could be blaming it on the a-a-a-a-alcohol this weekend -- 'cause he's gonna be partying with Jamie Foxx at a ritzy celebrity event ... TMZ has learned.

The DNC is throwing one of those big ticket fundraisers on Saturday in Pacific Palisades where the Prez will be pressing the flesh and working the room. The original invitation went out saying, "Musical guest TBD" ... but our DNC sources tell us Foxx will be the entertainment.

If you wanna roll VIP -- as in get a photo with Obama and prime seating for the concert -- it'll cost you $10,000! You can get in the door though for a mere $1,000 ... no pic included.

The exact location is only listed as a private home, until you fork over the dough for a ticket.

Let's hope Jamie's turn as POTUS in "White House Down" doesn't come up in conversation. For Jamie's sake.
