Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Helps Save 'The Rock' ... Doggie Version

58 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


A very sick pooch named Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is going to get a life-saving heart operation in the nick of time thanks to his namesake.

Dwayne, the dog, was all fur and bones with his mouth wired shut when L.A. shelter SPOT! found him. Turns out, Dwayne has a grade 6 heart murmur that requires a $4,500 surgery.

Someone started a GoFundMe page for the patient, and the two-legged Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson got wind of it. The actor has a real soft spot for dogs, and dropped $1,500 toward the $5k goal.

The Rock's not the only celeb to open his wallet ... we're told 'Real World' and "Hangover 2" star Jamie Chung donated $600 for a heart echo and x-rays.

As of now, the little guy's about $365 shy of the goal. The shelter plans on putting any extra cash it raises towards surgeries for other sick and injured dogs.

Behold lord D working his magic ... again.

Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone Legal Docs Claim Mental Incompetence ... But Healthy Sexual Appetite

11/25/2015 9:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

124_sumner-redstone_TMZViacom Chairman and CEO Sumner Redstone is in the middle of a legal war, with his ex-lover/caregiver fighting in court to regain control over decisions that will keep him alive ... and her arguments involve sex.

Manuela Herzer claims in legal docs she was once romantic and for a long time a close friend and confidant with the 92-year-old Redstone -- who also started Midway Games which produced Mortal Kombat -- and in September of this year he chose her to make medical decisions on his behalf.   

Herzer claims things changed radically just one month later when Redstone's health and mental state really deteriorated. She claims Redstone's people threw her out of his home and she no longer had the power to make medical decisions.

Herzer now claims Redstone was in such bad shape mentally he did not have the capacity to strip her of the power he gave her just a month earlier.

In her docs, Herzer suggests a marker showing Redstone's mental deterioration was when he started ignoring doctors orders. She says he "demands, to the extent he can be understood, to engage in sexual activity every day, even though Dr. Gold has repeatedly recommended that he abstain from daily sexual activity."

The docs also claim Redstone can't write, his signature is almost a straight line, "appearing as if someone moved the paper under his pen," he has "spontaneous crying spells" and can only converse in "brief grunted responses."

An attorney for Redstone tells us, "Ms. Herzer's claim that she filed this lawsuit out of concern for Mr. Redstone is preposterous."  They added, "It proves only that Ms. Herzer will stop at nothing to pursue her personal financial agenda."

A judge has yet to rule.

We're told Boosie's team was not happy he revealed his condition ... which is why the caption was deleted shortly after the initial posting. The photo of Boosie eating a meal remains on his IG.

Chris Rock Mystery 7-Year-Old Lived with Family on Pleasure Visa

11/25/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1124-chris-rock-gettyThe 7-year-old South African girl who mysteriously began living with Chris Rock and his now estranged wife for years has been in the U.S. with the help of a visitor visa ... TMZ has learned. 

As TMZ reported, a little girl named Ntombi began living with Chris and Malaak in 2008, when she was just 6 months old. There is no evidence the Rock family ever adopted the child, but they treated her like a daughter, making her part of the family and enrolling her in school. 

Our sources say Ntombi entered the country on a B2 "visitor for pleasure" visa. The visa allows the visitor to stay in the U.S. for up to 1 year, after which time the visitor must go back to her country and fill out paperwork before coming back.  

We're told Ntombi and Malaak went back to South Africa every year and reconnected with the girl's biological family, which included a mom, a dad, a brother and a sister. We're told each time, Ntombi and Malaak returned to the U.S. in short order.

Sources connected with Chris say he has no idea if money ever changed hands from his family to Ntombi's parents. We tried reaching Malaak's lawyer, but never got a call back.
