Fetty Wap Robbery His Crew Fired First Only Their Shots Landed

3/28/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-fetty-wap-TMZ-3Fetty Wap's crew fired off the only bullets that landed in the shootout after he was robbed -- including a possible self-inflicted gunshot wound ... TMZ has learned.

Eyewitnesses at the scene tell us a member of Fetty's crew fired first at Raheem Thomas' crew in retaliation Sunday morning ... and then that same person allegedly accidentally shot himself in the thigh. 

We're told the shooting started after Fuzz and his Muscle Team boys followed Fetty and co. into a Paterson, NJ deli, where things got violent fast. Sources say Fuzz pistol whipped someone in Fetty's camp, and then he and his guys proceeded to jump/rob Fetty and his crew on the spot.

That's when a second gun was taken out and shots were fired back and forth ... 2 of which landed on 2 of Raheem's guys. At some point after the initial bloodbath ... we're told the original shooter tried escaping and the gun fired in his waistband, striking him in the thigh.

That account roughly matches up with what cops have told us. As we reported ... 2 men were found in the immediate area of the shootout and were transported to hospitals. A 3rd guy thought to be involved checked himself into another hospital soon after.

Raheem's already been booked for gun possession and assault -- but it's unclear if he actually fired in the gun battle, despite being seen with a firearm. Prosecutors in court Monday said they did not believe Raheem had personally fired. 

We've reached out to Fetty's camp ... so far, no word back. 

Carrie Fisher Gary The Dog Gets A New Forever Home But Not With Billie

3/28/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-carrie-fisher-gary-the-dog-tmz-getty-2Carrie Fisher's beloved French bulldog Gary -- the one that was suppose to live with her daughter Billie Lourd after she died --  does not have the dog.

We've learned Carrie's assistant, Corby McCoin took Gary almost immediately and is now the outright owner.

0327-corby-and-gary

Days after the actress died in December, Carrie's family said Billie would get the dog for several reasons ... not the least of which was that Gary was best friends with Billie's bulldog, Tina.  

As for why things changed, as everyone knows Gary was Carrie's constant companion, and Corby was a fixture in Carrie's life ... always around the dog. It ultimately made more sense for Gary to live with the person -- not the dog -- with whom he felt a connection.

We're told Corby's not cashing in by taking Gary ...  she just feels taking Gary is the right thing to do.

EXCLUSIVE

0314-kanye-west-tmz-02Kanye West is not in discussions with NBC or anyone else about doing a re-boot of "American Idol" ... contrary to reports.

Reports are surfacing NBC and producers are chomping at the bit to bring Kanye on as host, and discussions are underway. Not true.

Sources close to Kanye and with direct knowledge tell us ... "There is no conversation with Kanye West to join 'American Idol' or any other show for that matter."

There's been a buzz NBC might bring the show back, but not with Yeezy.

Coachella 2017 What's That Smell? VIP Ganja Party

3/28/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327_weedmaps_coachella_compositeCoachella won't be the only high-profile event in the desert next month -- a fully legal "Oasis" for marijuana lovers will be right down the road.

WeedMaps and Talent Resources are building a compound 6 miles from the music fest to offer VIP guests a spot to chill with Cali's finest bud. Our ganja sources tell us the spot will feature 2 grow houses, a "greenhouse," and 5 geodesic domes to test different strains from GenX, Brass Knuckles and West Coast Cure.

Of course, "Budologists" will be on hand to help make recommendations.

0327_The-Oasis_sub

It's now legal to carry up to an ounce of weed in CA, so clearly organizers are trying to entice some Coachella-goers to shop beforehand.

BTW, those groovy looking domes will each offer different pot experiences -- vaping, edibles, traditional smoking, etc. -- but all will get you high.

'GOTG2' Star Michael Rooker I Won't Get an Oscar, but ... I'd Love a Cool Costume Prop!

3/28/2017 12:30 AM PDT

Michael Rooker calls director James Gunn a "dreamer" for saying he'll win an Oscar for his role in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" ... but he has his eyes on another prize.

We ask the guy who plays Yondu in 'GOTG2' at LAX if he ever thought he'd be famous for playing a blue superhero with a fin on his head ... his answer is hilarious. 

As for that fin, Rooker wants it for his own but has been unsuccessful ... but he MAY have acquired another awesome prop from his days on "The Walking Dead."

Burt Bacharach Sued Your Dog Bit My Fingers Off Thank God for My Groin!!!

3/27/2017 5:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327_Burt-Bacharach_tmzBurt Bacharach's being sued by a dog sitter who claims the mutt chewed off 2 of his fingers, requiring surgery using a skin graft from his groin.

Joel Gayner says he volunteered to take care of Alfie -- a Portuguese Water Dog like the ones the Obamas have. The 73-year-old sitter says one early morning he woke up to Alfie gasping for air, urinating all over the place with its eyes rolling back.

Joel says he dislodged a plastic bone on which Alfie was choking by pressing on his chest, massaging his esophagus and up the windpipe before broken pieces of a plastic bone came out of Alfie's mouth -- along with thick mucus and saliva.

He says this saved Alfie's life but minutes later, when he went to pet him, Joel says the dog snapped and mauled his left hand. The bite was so bad, Joel says his middle finger needed to be surgically reattached. What's more ... he says his index finger was also bitten off and he needed a skin graft from his groin area to reattach the missing chunks.

Joel says his fingers now have dead zones -- no feeling in multiple areas. He's suing for medical expenses and unspecified damages.

We've reached out to Burt, so far no word back.

Michael Jackson Victory for Estate ... Judge Tells Ex-Biz Partners to Beat It

3/27/2017 5:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-michael-jackson-getty-2Michael Jackson's former business partners tried to get a multi-million dollar slice of the pie after MJ's death, but a judge just told them to kick rocks ... TMZ has learned.

Three of the 4 plaintiffs claim they had a meeting with Michael in a Tokyo hotel room on June 1, 2006, and MJ promised them shares of his company. They claim Michael wanted to reward them for their loyalty at a time when the music biz had turned its back on him.

The plaintiffs include MJ's former publicist Raymone Bain and Quadree el-Amin -- a former manager for Boyz II Men -- but they have a big problem. According to docs, there was no written contract, it was an oral agreement. Monday in L.A. the judge said their story lacked credibility, and they were too damn late.

Howard Weitzman, lawyer for the MJ Estate, tells TMZ, "This was a frivolous and outrageous case and these claimants got what they deserved -- which was nothing."

The plaintiffs didn't file their claim until 2014 -- 5 years after Michael's death. The judge said if they really did strike this mega deal -- 1.6% each for 3 of them, and 10% for the 4th -- why not try to get it while Michael was still alive? Not to mention the deadline for such a claim was 2010.

In other words: Too Bad.

Fetty Wap No Police Reports Jewelry Robbery Handled in the Streets

3/27/2017 4:17 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0327-fetty-wap-TMZ-01Fetty Wap's no snitch and that's exactly why he will not file a police report or even talk to cops about his jewelry robbery.

We're told the rapper won't cooperate in the investigation to determine who stole $450k in jewelry and thousands in cash at a Paterson, New Jersey deli early Sunday morning ... a robbery that triggered a shootout in which 3 people were injured.

We're told Fetty sees it this way ...  let the streets handle his feud with Raheem Thomas, aka Fuzz ... who was arrested on gun charges after he flashed Fetty's stolen "1738" chain on Instagram.

It's unclear if cops have tried reaching out to Fetty or anyone in his camp, but they shouldn't waste their time.

The 75 carat gold Cuban chain alone is valued at $350k.

EXCLUSIVE

0327_Justin-Hodak-Arrest_tmz_wmJodie Sweetin's ex-fiance was just arrested for violating an order requiring him to stay clear of her.

Justin Hodak was arrested in Sherman Oaks, CA Monday ... days after she obtained a restraining order.

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Jodie claims earlier this month they had a nuclear fight, exacerbated by what she says was his anger triggered by steroids and alcohol. She says that's when she ended their engagement.

She says he threatened to kill himself with a 9mm pistol if she made him leave. He left the house with a gun, leaving behind an assault rifle. He also threatened suicide by cop.

Jodie got a restraining order requiring Hodak to stay 100 yards away from her, but Monday Jodie called police and reported a suspicious car in front of her house. When cops arrived they saw Hodak drive by, coming just feet from her home, so they stopped the car and arrested him.
