Drake's Thirsty Burglar I'm Baaack!!! Allegedly Spits on Cops, Gets Pepper Sprayed

7/28/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake's thirsty burglar amped things up with her latest attempt to enter his Hidden Hills mansion ... going off on cops and getting her ass pepper sprayed.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the 24-year-old woman -- who previously got busted sipping Sprite in Drizzy's mansion -- returned Thursday morning, and told security she was on the list. The attempted jedi mind trick didn't work, and when a guard told her to beat it ... she refused.

Things went south quick when cops arrived -- we're told she spit at 3 deputies. When she tried to reload her saliva ... cops blasted her with pepper spray, and arrested her for trespassing and assault on a police officer.

Drake wasn't home at the time ... same as her April arrest in his bedroom. As we reported, Drake's peeps contacted the L.A. County D.A. to get them to cut her a break. 

No good deed ... 

Floyd Mayweather's Ex Blasts McGregor Dom. Violence Is Not a Joke

7/28/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE


Floyd Mayweather's ex-GF is FURIOUS at Conor McGregor over a "trolling" stunt that mocked her domestic violence incident with Floyd ... saying he's shamelessly profiting from her pain.

The woman is Josie Harris -- who Floyd was convicted of attacking during a 2010 domestic violence incident at the boxer's Vegas home in front of their 3 kids. Mayweather spent 2 months behind bars for the attack.

McGregor "trolled" Floyd over the incident last week by wearing an NBA jersey of C.J. Watson -- the man Floyd accused Josie of secretly texting in 2010, which led to the violent altercation.

Josie wasn't laughing when she saw Conor's stunt -- and claims CM's doing nothing more than exploiting her trauma to promote his superfight with Floyd next month.

"[The stunt] demonstrates not only an insensitivity toward the emotional wellbeing and privacy of the victim of Mayweather’s dom. violence, but also a general disregard for the physical and emotional trauma and long-lasting psychological impacts suffered by victims of dom. abuse," Josie's attorney, Dan Friedlander, tells TMZ Sports

"On behalf of Josie Harris, her and Mayweather’s three children, and all victims of domestic violence, we ask that Conor McGregor refrain from capitalizing off of the trauma suffered by her and other victims of domestic abuse."


Ex-'RHONJ' Star Lauren Manzo's Salon Avoids Full Blown Fire By A Hair

7/28/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The hair salon co-owned by Caroline Manzo's daughter narrowly escaped going up in flames when an electrical fire broke out in the basement ... TMZ has learned.

Lauren Manzo's Westchester, NY branch of Full Blown -- co-owned with her pal, Lia Cagliostro -- filled with heavy black smoke last weekend while customers were mid-styling. Lia tells us the only warning they had was flickering lights. She thought it was just a blown fuse, but then everything went dark in the smoke cloud.

Firefighters battled for hours, and everyone got out safely. The salon itself wasn't as lucky -- even though firefighters beat back flames, there was severe water damage from fire hoses. Lia says they had to trash all their hairdryers, brushes and clips ... which reeked of smoke. 

The building still doesn't have power, and will need rewiring, but they're planning to reopen next week.

In the meantime, their NJ branch, formerly seen on 'RHONJ,' is still fully blowing ... hair.

EXCLUSIVE

Amy Schumer's gladly hanging on to her past, and to a couple old co-workers from back in her days waiting tables at Michael Jordan's famous restaurant.

Amy went back to Jordan's The Steak House Thursday in NYC ... where she used to be a server back in '04. These days Amy's hauling in a little more than she did then -- $37.5 mil in 2017, according to Forbes.

But she was still down to reminisce with Milton and Edgar -- who she worked with back then. Amy also posed with Eddie, who's now a service manager.

We're told Amy called in advance to order and pay for her meal -- filet mignon with a side of creamed spinach. Eddie hooked up Amy in MJ's private dining room.

And yeah, Amy paid it forward ... leaving an $80 cash tip on her $67 lunch tab.

Torrei Hart Check Yourself, Amber Rose ... Philly Folks Ain't Ugly

7/27/2017 6:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Torrei Hart has some advice for Amber Rose -- who daringly declared people from South Philly aren't "traditionally attractive" -- but Torrei also has plenty of shots to take.

Torrei, a Philadelphia native herself, ripped Amber for setting a bad example for young women who look up to her. Amber caught heat for her "Drink Champs" interview with N.O.R.E. ... because she said it was a blessing and a curse to grow up beautiful while surrounded by ugly people.

Torrei doesn't hold back her criticism, which included accusing Amber of using plastic surgery to attain her beauty. Still, she tried to offer a positive note or 2 about Amber. Tried.

Amber has since tried to walk back her comments, claiming her words were taken out of context ... and she finds beauty in everyone.

Not sure Torrei's buying what Amber's selling.

OJ Simpson Killer Non Grata ... At USC

7/27/2017 4:39 PM PDT
Breaking News

USC just delivered a pretty ferocious stiff arm to O.J. Simpson. 

With the ex-Trojans running back expected to be released from prison in October, USC football coach Clay Helton was asked Thursday if the Heisman Trophy winner would be welcomed back to campus. 

"Currently, right now, what the USC administration and athletic department has said is, ‘No, O.J. will not be a part of our functions or invited,'" Helton told reporters at PAC-12 media day. 

"That’s been the statement by the university."

When asked what he would say to Simpson if the 70-year-old wanted to come to a practice, Helton said -- "I'm cordial to every person that I've ever met."

USC shouldn't be too worried ... Simpson will most likely keep busy continuing the search for the real killer.

Rick Ross I'll Do Better Apologizes to Female Artists

7/27/2017 3:19 PM PDT

Rick Ross admits he made a mistake when he said he hadn't signed female artists to his label because he'd "end up f***ing" them.

Renzel issued an apology Thursday, backpedaling from his comments on the 'Breakfast Club' this week. If you missed it, Rick said, "I always thought, like, ‘I would end up f***ing a female rapper and f***ing the business up." 

He now says the remark was "A mistake I regret. I hope to use my mistake, my platform and the community to create positive discussion to implement change on a very important issue. Respect for the ones who stand up to say hey that isn't right."

Rick added in his apology ... he has respect for women in the music industry and looks forward to working with and supporting female artists.

As for whether he'll sign women to Maybach Music Group -- "Many of the most talented artists you'll see in the running to be the next #MMG superstars are female artists. I look forward to clarifying my comments through my support."

Before his mea culpa ... Da Brat joined us on TMZ Live to set the record straight with Rick about the proper way to handle female artists. Take notes, Boss!

Cop to Venus Williams 'You Got Stuck in a Bad Situation'

7/27/2017 2:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Police quickly informed Venus Williams she was "at fault" in her fatal car accident, but also explained why she wasn't being cited -- namely that she got "caught in the middle."

Palm Beach Gardens PD released the full bodycam footage from officers on the scene of the June 9 accident. One officer approached Venus and asked her to describe what happened.

She was totally upfront with the officer ... explaining how she had entered the intersection, but stopped when another vehicle made a left in front of her.

The cop told Venus he believed she had violated the right of way of Jerome and Linda Barson -- the couple who T-boned her -- but she would not be getting a ticket. The explanation? "I think you got stuck in the middle of the intersection. It's one of those situations where you had the right way, but you lost the right of way."

His advice to Venus ... let the insurance companies sort it all out.

The bodycam footage also includes the Barsons sitting in their Hyundai, waiting for treatment. Their airbags had deployed and they were clearly shaken up. As we reported ... Linda suffered several broken bones, while her 78-year-old husband, Jerome, was hospitalized for 2 weeks before he died from his injuries.

Venus Williams Crash 911 Call These People Need Help!

7/27/2017 1:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Venus Williams' car crash was a bloody, chaotic scene ... according to frantic 911 callers.

TMZ obtained the audio, and one witness emotionally described the accident with glass everywhere, and at least one person, Jerome Barson, left badly bleeding from his arm and leg. He died 2 weeks later from his injuries.

The caller also says Venus was able to get out of her car and walk, while Jerome and his wife, Linda were badly injured and unable to exit their vehicle. She eventually recognizes Venus, and says "she was unfortunately at fault."

As we first reported ... the attorney for the Barson estate -- which is suing Venus for wrongful death -- says vehicle data from Venus' SUV shows she went from 0 to 19.9 MPH in about 4.2 seconds as she tried to clear the intersection.

Cops on the scene said Venus was at fault in the accident, but did not cite her -- as seen in body cam footage.

EXCLUSIVE

Brandi Glanville's had it with Joanna Krupa refusing to turn over medical records ... so she's asking the judge to toss out the smelly vagina lawsuit.

Brandi filed docs saying the court ordered Joanna back in January to hand over her gynecological records but Joanna hasn't done it yet ... and Brandi says she's had more than enough time.

It's interesting ... Joanna also filed docs with a list of witnesses for the case and it reads like a Bravo reunion -- Lisa Vanderpump, Mohamed Hadid, Andy Cohen -- sprinkled with a couple other characters -- Mark Consuelos and Howard Stern.

Stay tuned ... 

Justin Bieber In the Name of My New Father ...

7/27/2017 10:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber won't complain about one part of his life on the road -- it forced him to grow incredibly close to his pastor, Carl Lentz ... so much so, he now sees him as a 2nd father.

Sources close to Hillsong Church tell TMZ ... Lentz stepped up big-time as a guiding presence in Justin's life, especially while he was on the road and overseas. We're told Justin was lonely during most of the Purpose tour -- he's been estranged from his mother, and likewise, had no relationship with his dad, Jeremy, for some time now.

On the flip side, Lentz flew to visit Justin often -- particularly during his Australia and New Zealand tour stops in March, then they kicked it again during his April break in NYC ... where Pastor Carl primarily preaches.

Interestingly, sources at the church tell us Justin and Carl have spent almost every day together within the last month, and one source described them as "nearly inseparable." As we reported, Justin also views Hillsong as an escape from his celebrity life.

His fondness for Carl, and vice versa, is obvious in a Hillsong Church video posted a few days ago.
