Demi Lovato OD Likely Triggered By Oxy Laced With Fentanyl

8/14/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Demi Lovato's near-death OD began at 4 AM July 24, when she texted a drug dealer to come to her house ... sources tell TMZ.

Sources with direct knowledge tell us, Demi had been at a party in WeHo following a birthday celebration at Saddle Ranch on the Sunset Strip. After the drug dealer got the text, he came to her house and we're told the 2 freebased Oxycodone on tin foil.

Our sources say unbeknownst to Demi, the drug dealer had a bad habit of buying dirty drugs from Mexico ... and the batch in question appeared to be laced with fentanyl -- that's the same drug that killed Prince and Lil Peep.

We're told the dealer fled her home when he noticed she was in bed, breathing very heavily.

Our sources say Demi had been using the dealer since April.

TMZ broke the story ... someone on Demi's staff found her around 11:30 AM on the 24th. She had to be revived with Narcan.  

Demi was hospitalized for 2 weeks and then went to an out-of-state rehab facility. Last Friday, she and her mom flew to Chicago for a few days where she received treatment from a renowned addiction specialist.  

Omarosa Secretly Recorded Convos During Trump Campaign Trump Calls Her a 'Dog'

8/14/2018 6:29 AM PDT

Turns out Omarosa was secretly recording Trump and his staff long before he became President ... and Trump is now going ham, calling her "a crazed, crying lowlife" and "that dog."

"CBS This Morning" got the latest Omarosa tape, where she recorded 3 staffers during the 2016 campaign. They were talking about the buzz that an outtake existed during taping of "Celebrity Apprentice" ... where Trump allegedly used the n-word. 

Most important part ... the staffer says she talked to Trump and he said he never used the word, and Omarosa jumps in and says, "That's not true." So it seems Omarosa firmly believed Trump used the n-word yet she fought for him, supported him, proclaimed he was not a racist all the while.

What's also interesting ... why she secretly recorded conversations from the get-go. It would seem she had a book on her brain long before she was fired.

For Trump's part, he predictably went after her, tweeting, "When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn't work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!"

8/14/2018 7:00 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

YG was flying high even before his flight left the gate ... at least according to American Airlines, which promptly kicked his allegedly drunken ass off the plane.

YG boarded the LAX to JFK flight Monday night, but wasn't there long. The rapper was pissed off as he made that long, lonely and embarrassing walk back down the jetway. He said, "F**k American Airlines! They said I'm drunk. I'm sober than a muthaf***a!"

American tells TMZ ... YG was indeed kicked off "due to being intoxicated." After seeing his video, though, AA tried to slide into his DMs.

As he made his exit, YG made it clear he thinks this was less about booze, and more about FWB. He blurted, "Racist ass muthaf***as. I'm sober!!"

The flight took off on time.

That said, Sherri also believes Omarosa might be the one to bring Trump down. Even if that happens, Sherri says good riddance to both.

Shaq ain't the only crime fighter in the O'Neal family -- his ex-wife, Shaunie O'Neal, spotted some dudes allegedly trying to break into her home ... and used her security system to scare 'em off!

Shaunie spotted two dudes skulking around the property -- and activated the 2-way speaker on her Ring video surveillance system to yell at the intruders.

"What are you doing?" Shaunie said calmly ... "You're on camera. Smile bitch!"

You can see the "Oh crap" look on one of the perp's face -- both men immediately turn tail and book it out of the home.

Shaunie, hoping for some public shaming, posted the footage to social media, saying, "Listen did y’all forget @Shaq is partners with @ring and made sure the kids and I had cameras everywhere."

Here's Veronika Khomyn -- the smokin' hot girlfriend of L.A. Rams head coach Sean McVay -- finding ways to pass the time while her man figures out ways to get Todd Gurley into the end zone. 

The team's training camp facilities are just a few miles from Laguna Beach (yeah, where they shot that MTV reality show back in the day) ... so Veronika decided to throw on her bikini and catch some rays. 

Some background on Veronika -- she's a 28-year-old Ukranian model who started dating McVay back when he was an assistant coach with the Washington Redskins.

EXCLUSIVE

Nick Cannon promises his new show about the Bay Area will be dripping in authenticity 'cause he's got Oakland legends, E-40 and Too Short, on board as producers. 

Nick tells TMZ he's psyched about his drama crime series, "The Yay Area," because it's going to chronicle Northern California's drug culture, and its connection to Silicon Valley, biker gangs and even the Black Panthers.

Nick's thinking "The Wire" meets "The Sopranos" -- and now that he has Short and 40 involved, he thinks things will move quickly. We're told several networks are interested, and Nick's sinking tons of his own dough into it.

He plans to start shooting 'Yay' this Fall. Until then, Nick's so busy with so many other gigs ... we can tell, he needs a nap. 

Debra Tate Margot Brings Sharon Back to Life In 'Once Upon a Time' Role

8/14/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sharon Tate is about to be resurrected in spectacular fashion in Quentin Tarantino's new movie, thanks to Margot Robbie ... so says Sharon's sister, who watched the action on the closed set. 

Debra Tate says QT's flick "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" -- which centers around the murders of her sibling and her friends at the hands of the Manson Family -- is magnificent because Margot is capturing all the nuances from the slain actress. 

It's a hell of an Oscar pitch. Debra says Margot's taking the role incredibly seriously ... and it shows from what she's seen firsthand on set. And, of course, the resemblance is uncanny.

There's also this ... Debra says all the A-listers attached -- including Leo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, just to name a few -- are actually super friendly in real life. How 'bout that?!

Debra had previously bashed Tarantino and his cast for not reaching out to her for her blessing, but that's all changed. She came out fully supporting the movie late last month ... and it sounds like the film has come to exceed her expectations since then. 

'The 100' Star Marie Avgeropoulos Arrested for Felony DV ... Allegedly Attacked BF

8/14/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

An actress who plays a post-apocalyptic juvenile delinquent on TV allegedly went nuclear on her BF in real life and got busted by cops.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Marie Avgeropoulos -- who stars as Octavia Blake on CW's hit sci-fi show, "The 100" -- was arrested in L.A. last week and booked for felony domestic violence.

We're told a man called police very early on August 5 from inside a car ... claiming his girlfriend had hit him during a verbal argument. Sources say when police arrived, the man had marks on his body ... so Marie was taken to jail.

Her mugshot's just as edgy as her character on '100' -- albeit with a lot less blood and war paint on her face. She does appear to have been crying though. 

A source close to Marie claims the actress was on new meds and mixed it with wine during dinner that evening ... which resulted in a bad reaction. We're told her boyfriend called police thinking they'd diffuse the situation rather than arrest her -- as they're both Canadian and unfamiliar with what'll get a person hauled off to jail in the U.S.

Our source says he begged cops not to take her away ... and even bailed her out after. Marie was released on $50,000 bond.

We're told the boyfriend does not want to press charges.

EXCLUSIVE

Deontay Wilder says he's done talking with Anthony Joshua's camp about a possible superfight down the road ... telling TMZ Sports Joshua's a LIAR who doesn't actually want to fight!!

Wilder and Joshua are the two biggest names in boxing right now ... and both Joshua and his promoter, Eddie Hearn, have told us recently a superfight between the two WILL happen.

But, now Wilder is throwing the brakes on all that talk ... telling us Joshua really DOESN'T want to make the fight work.

"These guys have lied about so much stuff it's crazy," Wilder says.

"Everyone knows who tried to make the fight, who really wanted to fight. A blind man could see the situation with this, and we're done with it."

Deontay says he's moving on and solely focusing on his next fight -- a November bout with Tyson Fury in Vegas.

BUT ... Deontay does tell us he's going to knock Fury out early in the night ... soooo, the possibility for the superfight WOULD still be alive after that.

Just sayin'.
