Heather Locklear Placed on Another Psych Hold

11/19/2018 11:22 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Heather Locklear has been placed on a psychiatric hold again after her therapist determined she was having another mental breakdown ... sources with knowledge tell TMZ.

Heather was at her home Sunday afternoon when her therapist and lawyer realized she desperately needed help. Someone called 911 and EMTs arrived, and Heather was taken to a hospital. 

There are reports she assaulted her boyfriend, but our sources say her BF was not there and had not been there for days. We're told this was an ongoing mental health issue that resurfaced over the weekend. 

We do not know if alcohol was involved, but no crime was committed. The medical call was simply placed as a health precaution.

Heather recently completed a stint in rehab after being 5150'd several months ago.

Blac Chyna Buy My New Skin Lightening Cream!

11/19/2018 10:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna is cashing in on a beauty product -- a controversial one -- she says she's been using for skin care ... TMZ has learned.

BC is partnering with Whitenicious by Dencia to roll out something called "Whitenicious X Blac Chyna Diamond Illuminating & Lightening Cream." It goes for $250 per jar, and the jar is studded with Swarovski crystals ... so ya know it's fancy.

The cream is being marketed to men and women of all skin types. Blac Chyna's reps tell TMZ ... BC's been using Whitenicious dark spot corrector for a few years to deal with her hyperpigmentation.  

We're told Chyna felt this was a good deal for her because a lot of women of color suffer from skin issues. True enough, however, skin lightening products have also come under fire from critics who think they feed into a European beauty standard ... aka "the lighter the better."

Think baseball great Sammy Sosa.

As we reported, BC is currently getting $0 in child support from Rob Kardashian -- still, she ain't hurting for money, and she's now added an additional revenue stream.

Paris Hilton & Chris Zylka Splitsville ... Engagement's Off!!

11/19/2018 9:36 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Paris Hilton will NOT be walking down the aisle as planned -- she's broken up with her latest fiance, Chris Zylka ... TMZ confirms.

Sources close to the now-exes tell us Paris called things off with Chris several weeks ago. They got engaged at the beginning of the year during a trip to Aspen after dating for about a year before that.

We're told Paris realized Chris just wasn't the one, and things between them had moved too fast. Paris hopes the two can remain friends and wishes Zylka all the best.

We got Paris two weeks ago at LAX, and she was still rocking that $2 million engagement ring. We asked her if everything was still cool with Chris and the wedding ... and she said all was good. 

Our photog also quizzed Paris' mom, Kathy Hilton, a couple months back as to why the couple's wedding was pushed back ... and she served up a seemingly legit reason

This is Paris' third engagement ... she and Paris Latsis were ready to tie the knot in 2005 before calling it off. She was also reportedly engaged to Jason Shaw in 2002.

Back to the drawing board.

Diddy Private Memorial for Kim Porter At Bel-Air Mansion

11/19/2018 7:19 AM PST

Diddy hosted a private memorial to honor Kim Porter -- the mother of 3 of his children -- and the event was filled with friends, family and stories about Kim's life.

More than a hundred people came to Diddy's Bel-Air home Sunday to remember Kim. The house was filled with photos of Porter and the family. A candlelit walkway lined the entrance as guests arrived.

French Montana, Mary J. Blige and Pharrell were among the guests. 

There were heaters in the back for comfort ... it's getting cooler in SoCal.

TMZ broke the story ... Kim was found dead in her Toluca Lake home on Thursday. The 47-year-old mother of 4 had recently fallen ill with the flu, and complained she wasn't feeling well before going to bed Wednesday night.

The official cause of death will take 4 to 6 weeks, when toxicology reports are in. 

Joshua Jackson Sunday, Fun Day with New Bae!!

11/19/2018 10:18 AM PST

Joshua Jackson got a little handsy over the weekend ... with a gorgeous gal pal.

The former '90s heartthrob was spotted holding hands Sunday in L.A. with actress Jodie Turner-Smith while out for lunch. They were all smiles and making it crystal clear ... they're very much into each other.

As you know ... Joshua split from Diane Kruger about 2 years ago after their 10-year relationship came to an end. He was later seen stepping out with model Shafia West and, earlier this year, Josh was linked to TV host Alyssa Julya Smith. The bachelor life ain't easy.

As for Jodie ... she's an up-and-comer. Ya might have seen her in "The Last Ship" on TNT and she's set to appear on the Syfy channel's "Nightflyers" in December.

She's busy, but not too busy for Joshua.

Tekashi69 Busted by Feds on Racketeering Charges

11/19/2018 5:39 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69, his recently fired manager and 2 other former associates are in federal custody after getting busted on racketeering charges -- which almost certainly means the rapper's going to prison ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... 6ix9ine was arrested Sunday night by ATF agents in NYC, and the agents also hauled in his ex-manager, Shottie, at the same time. You'll recall Tekashi had just fired Shottie and much of his management team last week.

One of the other suspects arrested is Faheem Walter -- aka Crippy -- who got shot a few weeks ago during the altercation with Tekashi's record label head.

All 4 men are facing racketeering and firearms charges. We're told the investigation was a joint effort by ATF, NYPD and Homeland Security.

It's interesting, Tekashi was on "The Breakfast Club" just last week and admitted he only feared two things ... God and the FBI. 

Tekashi was already skating on thin ice. As we reported, the judge who gave him probation in his child sex case had warned him to keep his nose clean ... or he'd be going straight to prison.

Harvey Weinstein Accused of Turning Rape Case into 'Public Circus' ... Manhattan D.A. Fires Back

11/19/2018 10:43 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

10:40 AM PT -- Weinstein's attorney, Ben Brafman, tells TMZ that "Nothing in the DA's response gives us any more confidence in the integrity of the Grand Jury's proceedings."

He adds, "As for the hearing that the People fear will become a 'circus' - it is they who created the circus with the DA and the NYPD calling each other liars."

Harvey Weinstein's NYC rape case should absolutely move forward, according to prosecutors who insist the whole case has NOT been tainted by one rogue detective.

The D.A.'s Office filed its response to Weinstein's motion to dismiss and accuses Weinstein's team of trying to turn the case into a "circus" with Det. Nicholas DiGaudio at the center of it. As we reported, prosecutors dropped one count against Weinstein after it came out DiGaudio had engaged in witness tampering.

Prosecutors insist Weinstein's motion to dismiss all the other counts is based on "pure speculation." According to the docs, obtained by TMZ ... there's no evidence DiGaudio met with another key witness and, "In truth, the only reason the defendant wants a hearing is to provide a public circus that will further the public relations campaign the defendant has been waging from the outset of this case."

As we reported, Weinstein's attorney, Ben Brafman, filed a motion earlier this month to have the case dismissed ... claiming one alleged victim, Mimi Haleyi, remained in contact with Weinstein 7 months after alleging he forcibly performed oral sex.

Brafman argued that because of former lead detective DiGaudio's previous incident of witness tampering, the case is tainted and should be thrown out.

Man Arrested Threatened to Drop Bombs in Bathroom ... Claims He Meant Poop!

11/19/2018 7:56 AM PST
Breaking News

A New Orleans man was arrested at a Willie's Chicken Shack after allegedly claiming he was going to "blow the bathroom up."

Problem is ... the guy claims he was talking about butt bombs -- not actual explosives!!!

And yes, this is a real story. 

The man in the mug shot is 30-year-old Arthur Posey -- who hit up the Canal Street restaurant at night on Nov. 13. 

Employees told police Posey made a violent threat against the place -- allegedly saying, "Y’all about to close right now because I’m going to get a bomb and blow this place up.”

When cops tracked down Posey, he claimed it was a giant misunderstanding -- explaining he told staffers he was going to "blow the bathroom up" ... meaning, he was gonna poop his brains out. 

Cops didn't buy what Posey was selling and arrested him. He's now facing 2 counts of communicating false information of planned arson.

He's due back in court later this month -- where he'll try to convince a judge the allegations are just a bunch of crap. 

Jay-Z's '99 Problems' Triggers Police Response for Dom. Violence Call

11/19/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ever blurted out Jay-Z's famous lyric to "99 Problems"? Bet it's never resulted in cops pointing guns at you ... 'cause that's EXACTLY what happened to one man in Tennessee.

Davon Eddington tells TMZ ... he was in his backyard last week in Spring Hill, Tennessee drinking a beer and talking to his brother on the phone about LeBron James and the Lakers. Davon's brother called him a bandwagon Lakers fan ... to which Davon replied, "I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain't one."

A neighbor, apparently overhearing the conversation, misinterpreted the lyric and told cops he thinks Davon's beating his fiancee -- who, BTW, was upstairs taking a bath. 

According to a police report, obtained by TMZ, cops raced to Davon's home after the caller told them he heard Davon say he had "99 problems and this bitch ain't one."

Davon says cops ultimately got to his house and onto his property with guns drawn before they realized it was a total misunderstanding, to say the least. 

Davon says cops apologized, 'cause it seems he got swatted. Davon kept his cool ... but it seems it's one particular neighbor who is NOT cool with him.

Kanye & North West Daddy & Me Date Comes w/ Views ... & Brand New Yeezy Shoes!!

11/19/2018 7:46 AM PST

Kanye West's daughter, North, had the best seat in the house for their daddy-and-me date ... on top of Ye's shoulders. Good thing he brought comfy shoes.

North and her pops hit up the California Science Center in L.A. Sunday. Lots of cool things to see there -- like the Space Shuttle Endeavour -- and it's an outing that requires lots of walking. So, it's interesting Kanye chose this day to bust out his yet-to-be-released YEEZY Boost 700 VX.

Kinda hard to miss Ye make an entrance ... especially when he's wearing these fluorescent green Yeezy samples down low, and his adorable daughter on his shoulders.

He could use a fun day of daddy duty.

As we reported, the Woolsey fire crept right up to Kim and Kanye's property, and only a team of private firefighters saved them from catastrophe. Ye was also at the Bev Hills mansion when gunfire erupted on the set of his music video with Tekashi69.

Kanye's visit to the Science Center came just a couple days after he donated $150k to the family of a Chicago security guard killed by cops moments after he subdued a gunman.

UFC's Rachael Ostovich Attacked, Hospitalized Cops Open Felony Domestic Violence Investigation

11/18/2018 8:49 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

3:45 AM PT -- Honolulu police tell TMZ Sports they have opened a felony domestic violence investigation. So far, we're told no arrests have been made. 

UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich -- who was scheduled to fight Paige VanZant in January -- was attacked in Hawaii and sources tell us it was so serious, she's being hospitalized for major injuries. 

Multiple sources tell TMZ Sports ... Ostovich was in Honolulu when the incident took place. Our sources tell us she's believed to have suffered a broken orbital bone. 

We're told Ostovich's attacker is someone close to her. 

If Ostovich did, in fact, suffer a broken bone in her face, it would almost certainly mean her January 19 fight with Paige VanZant at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn would be off. 

We've reached out to Rachael's camp for comment -- so far, no word back.

27-year-old Ostovich is a rising star in the sport -- and the fight with VanZant would undoubtedly be the biggest moment of her career.

YG 'F*** You & 6ix9ine' ... Tekashi Fan Makes Blunder Down Under

11/19/2018 7:48 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

YG's beef with Tekashi69 is going way beyond West Coast vs. East Coast, because he's cussing out 6ix9ine fans thousands of miles away. 

We got video of YG boarding a flight in Melbourne, and he starts yelling at a fan who flashes a 6ix9ine shirt at YG and his crew. 

Check out the clip ... you hear YG swear at the Tekashi fan, dropping an f-bomb and calling him a "p****." 

YG is on tour down under, but he's apparently bringing his feud with Tekashi with him. The 2 rappers have been trading barbs on social media all year, and YG's boy Slim 400 had a showdown with Tekashi earlier this month at ComplexCon. 

Seems this guy was trying to get a reaction out of YG. After all, YG loooves trolling fans of his rivals.

Hours after YG trashed Tekashi, the Brooklyn rapper got busted by the feds on racketeering charges.
