Lindsay Lohan

I'm Servicing the Community ...

By Showing Off My Body

1/24/2015 1:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0124-lindsay-lohan-instagram-02Lindsay Lohan's mosquito virus seems to be chikun-GONE-ya ... now she just needs to focus more on finishing her community service, and less on her ass -- or it could land her in jail.

Lilo posted a half naked pic Saturday afternoon on Instagram ... with a caption that almost mocks her own defense ... writing, "#mycalvins are helping me fight off chikungunya (kissy face emoji) hehe."

Lindsay is due in court next week to prove she's completed all her hours ... but she's nowhere near the finish line.  LiLo's excuse is that the community service center in London was closed for 2 weeks during the holidays and she ended up in the hospital with chikungunya.

No word on whether the prosecutor is gonna ask for jail time -- but we're guessing this pic won't help.

John Wayne
's son had a visit by the law Friday night ... after a fight over a horse  Mercedes.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Patrick Wayne's wife, Misha Anderson called the cops at around 9 PM, after they got into a heated argument over the car.  The way cops tell it ...75-year-old Patrick bought his 45ish-year-old wife a Mercedes C class which pissed her off because she wanted an E class.

Our sources say the couple said they were in the process of breaking up ... which is the weirdest part, because why would you buy the wife you're divorcing any car ... even a C class?

Nonetheless ... cops say they calmed them down and left.  

You never had these problems with stagecoaches.

Richard Simmons

Cops Visit After Elder Abuse Claim

And He's Fine

1/24/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Richard Simmons Abused
Richard Simmons had visitors Friday night ... cops who were doing a welfare check because he's been MIA for more than year ... and guess what? He's fine. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... 2 LAPD officers showed up to Simmons' Hollywood Hills home at 7 PM. Richard answered the door and showed them in. The cops' feedback -- he couldn't have been nicer and more gracious. They say he was articulate, lucid, relaxed and appreciative of their concern.  

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the visit was triggered by a long-time friend of Simmons who sent an email to the L.A. County D.A.'s Elder Abuse Unit last month and said he believed the 66-year-old fitness guru was being abused.

TMZ broke the story, Simmons went radio silent a year ago. He hasn't spoken to his friends, gone to his fitness studio or been seen in public. His friends say there is no way Richard would shut himself off this way. His manager says Simmons is simply depressed over a knee injury.

But we've learned the 2 cops who spent an hour with Richard say he seemed genuinely happy. Simmons, who now has a beard, told them he was "exhausted" after spending 30 years in the public eye. He said, "I just want to spend time with myself," although he says he's in regular touch with the people in his life who matter to him. He was alone in the house Friday when cops were there.

Simmons was walking with a slight limp, which is consistent with the knee injury. As for why he hasn't been to his fitness studio for the better part of last year, he said, "I've got people who run things. I don't need to be there." Until he disappeared he was a fixture at the studio.

breaking news

012415_x_games_launch_v2Pro skier Henrik Harlaut was knocked out cold Saturday during an X Games Aspen event ... and the footage is frightening.

It all went down during the Men's Slopestyle finals ... when Harlaut landed a trick the wrong way and took a gnarly tumble -- leaving the 23 year-old motionless as medics rushed in to help.

The Swedish skier eventually sat up before being stretchered off the mountain ... and waved to everyone letting them know he's OK while plastering a giant smile across his face.

You gotta watch the video ... dude looks lucky to be alive.

Birdman vs. Lil Wayne

War is On

NO SETTLEMENT

1/24/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0123-birdman-lil-wayne-tmz-02Birdman and Lil Wayne have officially declared war ... settlement talks have broken down and Wayne will now sue his mentor, claiming among other things Birdman owes him $8 million.

As TMZ reported ... the 2 titans tried coming to terms this week but it wasn't meant to be. Now Wayne will ask a judge to declare him free of Cash Money and Birdman's control. Wayne says Birdman has violated their contract by withholding the release of his new album.

As for the $8 MIL claim ... Wayne says Birdman owed the money for his latest album -- it was supposed to be an advance.  

Birdman has held firm ... he will release the album "in due time," but clearly that's not good enough for Wayne.

We're told Wayne will keep recording but he will release his works outside of the Cash Money umbrella.

012415_ryan_guzman_launchIf Jennifer Lopez is looking for a new man, it sounds like she could set her sites on the dude she gets hot and heavy with in "Boy Next Door" -- cause he's a big fan.

Ryan Guzman was leaving the Palm Friday night when he told us JLo is by far the best kiss he's had on screen ... even though she only ranked him #2 during a recent interview.

The 27 year-old actor shouldn't fret about his runner up position ... Lopez put him above Clooney.

'Real Housewives of O.C.'

Jeana Keough Returns ...

On a Short Leash

Exclusive Details

Jeana Keough Returning Real Housewives Of Orange County Ain't nothin' like an original ... Jeana Keough is coming back to "The Real Housewives of Orange County" -- but she'll be a part-time cast member ... for now.   

Jeana's been shouting from the rooftops about her return to the show she left in 2009 -- but production sources tell TMZ her camera time will be limited to start the season. We're told Bravo execs want to see if fans are still into Jeana ... before they go all in. 

Of course, 'Housewives' fans remember Jeana for her epic fight with Tamra Barney -- one of the greatest in reality TV history -- and we're told things might get dicey again between them this season.  

Just a hunch, but a rematch would probably cement a full-time role for Jeana. When it comes to the 'Housewives' ... if it bleeds it leads.

Kanye West

Pap Doesn't Want Jury to Hear

I Also Pissed Off Britney!

EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West
 has no right to tell a jury the photog who's suing him is the very same guy who Britney Spears famously attacked with an umbrella ... at least that's what the photog is banking on.

Daniel Ramos is suing Kanye for the 2013 LAX attack. Kanye pled no contest to misdemeanor battery, but now Ramos is suing him.  

Kanye wants to prove to the jury Ramos is a bad guy ... not only because of the 2007 umbrella incident, but also because he was so gross he tried selling the umbrella and the truck she struck.

0123_britney_spears_umbrella_x17online_SUB
But Ramos has filed legal docs asking the judge to exclude evidence of his Britney hijinks, saying it has nothing to do with the LAX attack and it would unfairly turn the jury against him.

Ramos also wants the judge to exclude evidence that he actually made a pretty penny off the video he shot as Kanye went after him.

It's kinda like having your cake ...
