Bobbi Kristina

D.A. Gunning for Manslaughter Charge Against BF

7/29/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728-nick-gordon-bobbi-kristina-max-lomas-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-GETTY-02

Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, is in the crosshairs of prosecutors who want to charge him with involuntary manslaughter, and they're putting the squeeze on one of Nick's friends to turn on him ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say authorities believe Nick's alleged crime is arranging to get drugs for Bobbi Kristina the day she almost drowned in her bathtub.   

We know Nick claims both he and Bobbi did drugs that morning, and now sources tell us there was nothing intravenously injected.  

The autopsy is not helping authorities make their case -- it showed no obvious signs of foul play and the toxicology reports will only determine if she was under the influence and not who supplied the drugs.

The key for prosecutors is the third person in Bobbi Kristina's home that day -- Max Lomas, who's currently being prosecuted in Georgia for 2 drug-related felonies, not connected to Bobbi Kristina.

Lomas' case has lingered for nearly 6 months, and one source familiar with the case tells us, authorities are interested in offering Lomas a deal -- probation on the drug charges and immunity in the Bobbi Kristina case in return for spilling all the details of what happened in her house.

We're told prosecutors believe Nick had reason to know Bobbi Kristina had a drug problem and also knew she would indulge to the point of losing consciousness, yet he helped her get and use drugs and then left her in harm's way.

Tyga

Worst Tenant Ever ...

Sued AGAIN for Stiffing Landlord

7/29/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728-tyga-tmz-0117-year-old Kylie Jenner owns her own $2.7 million home, and her 25-year-old boyfriend, Tyga, is being sued for not paying his rent ... yet again.

Tyga's being sued by his landlord for failing to pay two months rent on his house in posh Calabasas. The pad rents for $25k/month ... and the landlord says he's behind that amount times 2.

If Tyga doesn't fork over the loot by Saturday, the landlord will go for eviction and charge him $833.33 a day in rent.

Fun fact: this is the house where Tyga lived with Blac Chyna ... so she's named as a defendant too. 

Just last month, Tyga was ordered to pay $80,000 in back rent to another Calabasas landlord.

We have reached out to Tyga's lawyer for comment ... so far no word back.

John Stamos

Slays 'Fuller House' Shoot

... with DUI Joke

7/29/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728-main-john-stamos-instagram-01John Stamos returned to work with a vengeance to kick off "Fuller House" ... and even cracked a joke about his DUI arrest.

Audience members went crazy as Stamos stepped out on set as Uncle Jesse ... a day after he left rehab. TMZ broke the story, Stamos was busted for DUI in Beverly Hills last month and he was so bad off he was taken to the ER. But 30 days in rehab for substance abuse did him well.

Stamos told the audience about a scene they couldn't shoot because the prop car didn't show. John joked, "Well, I have a car ... but I can't drive."

It brought the house down.

As for the rest of the taping ... we're told John nailed every scene.

Have mercy.

'GOT' Star Nathalie Emmanuel

Fan Drops $55k at Nightclub

... But Fails to Impress

EXCLUSIVE

"Game Of Thrones" has a fan base as big as a White Walker army, and one of those fans just threw away a ton of dough at a failed attempt to impress Khaleesi's right hand girl, Nathalie Emmanuel.

Nathalie, who plays Missandei, was clubbing it up with her gal pals at London hotspot China White last Saturday ... when a wealthy mega fan at the club dropped $55k to party with her, with the help of 12 bottles of Dom and a 6 liter bottle of Belvedere, which he sent to her table.

The mid-40s fanboy also commissioned a personalized show in which he controlled club lights and a CO2/confetti cannon.

Problem is, Nathalie wasn't impressed and sent the booze back.

A true fan would have known, such tactics would have only worked on Cersei Lannister.

Iraqi Death Scene Update

Marines Burned Bodies Exploding from Heat

7/28/2015 6:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0728_GRAPHIC_images_marines_burning_launchThe American soldiers who were photographed last year burning the bodies of Iraqi insurgents now say they were just following orders after the bodies started "literally exploding" in the streets.

The photos first obtained by TMZ show a horrific death scene ... U.S. troops dousing and burning corpses in Fallujah back in 2004. Our story triggered a military investigation, but our sources say no disciplinary action was taken.

Portions of the investigative file have now been made public, and one Marine told investigators the temp in Iraq at the time was a scorching 135 degrees and the carcasses were exploding in the streets from the heat. They decided the only course of action was to burn the bodies.

The Marine said that the troops could “literally taste the corpses” because the smell was so awful, and it lowered morale.

There were other reasons too. Starving wild dogs often attacked troops as they fed on the dead.

EXCLUSIVE

0728-terrence-howard-michelle-ghent-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Terrence Howard's ex-wife isn't done with him quite yet. She just filed a lawsuit, claiming he beat her within an inch of her life.

Michelle Ghent claims she and Terrence were at a rental house in Costa Rica in 2013 when they began arguing and he grabbed her by the neck, pushed her against the bathroom wall and began strangling her. She says he threatened to kill her and then mule kicked her.

Ghent filed the lawsuit just 1 day before the statute of limitations ran.  

Terrence has said it was mutual combat, claiming Ghent pepper spayed him during the fight.

Indiana Mayor

I'm Cool With 2 Chainz ...

He Doesn't Attract Bad People Like Chief Keef

7/28/2015 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728_Mayor-Tom_2chainz_twitterThe Indiana mayor who shut down Chief Keef's concert over the weekend went and mugged for the camera with rapper 2 Chainz ... because he says Chainz is all about having a good time while Keef attracts a bad element.

Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott tells us he pulled the plug on Keef's non-live, hologram performance Saturday night because of Keef's "anti-cop, pro-gang" lyrics.

As for why McDermott took a pic 2 days later with 2 Chainz ... he says the rapper's lyrics are innocuous and the crowds are more chill. Perhaps McDermott hasn't heard the song, "We Own It," in which 2C raps ...

'Bachelorette' Runner-Up Nick Viall

Blows His Loser Cover ...

Before Show Finale

7/28/2015 2:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728-nick-v-tmz-02
'Bachelorette' runner-up Nick Viall ruined the big finale -- making it clear he wasn't picked -- because he was openly and notoriously cavorting with a hot girl who was NOT the bachelorette.

Viall was hanging poolside Sunday afternoon at the Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood, clearly not caring that everyone around him could easily guess he was not bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe's choice. It's all the more interesting because most people assumed he was gonna win during Monday's show.

We're told Nick is saying the chick in the pool is just a friend from home.  

He clearly has a type ... she looks just like Kaitlyn, but we're not calling her a consolation prize.

11:00 AM PT -- Sources connected with the former couple say Blake had no beef.  The stuff on the porch are things Miranda didn't want anymore and she said give it to charity or whoever Blake wanted.

update_grey_gray_bar

Blake Shelton is ridding himself of all things Miranda ... because he's removed all her junk from his Oklahoma home.

Sources connected to Miranda confirm it is indeed her stuff that now sits on the front porch of Blake's Oklahoma ranch.

It looks like every other garage sale in America, but some of those boots are worth real money.

One source says Blake has been gone since he filed for divorce last week, and when a ranch hand told him Miranda hadn't removed her stuff, he ordered his staff to pack up her belongings and have it taken away in a U-Haul. 

As we previously reported, Miranda's moving to Nashville and Blake will stay on the ranch.
