Suge Knight's Big Break

Victim Blames Himself for Death

4/17/2015 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight has got a powerful weapon ... not a gun, and not a car. It's the guy he ran over who lived and told cops he was responsible for the other victim's death. 

Cle Bone Sloan told LAPD officers the same day he was mowed down by Suge's truck, "I was in a rage. I f***ed up. I get that 'cause a guy is dead behind this s**t."

TMZ first posted the video of the accident, and you see Bone attack Suge almost the second he enters the Tam's parking lot in Compton.  

Suge claims it was all a set up and Bone as well as others were trying to do him in, and he gunned it to save his life. Suge ran over bone, critically injuring him. Another victim, Terry Carter, died.

The court released photos of Suge's face, which appear to show the injuries he suffered when Bone attacked him. There's also a mug shot of Suge. 

Suge's attorneys are going to use the audio to make the argument ... how can a jury convict Suge if someone else confessed?

The video's hysterical ... 16-year-old Brooklyn posted an Instagram video to celebrate crossing the one million line. David just had to poke his head in and put his son in his place ... by reminding him that 52 million people follow him on Facebook. BTW, David inflated it by 2 mil.  

Brooklyn's reaction is classic.

Oprah

I Won't Be Conned!!

EXCLUSIVE

0417_oprah_own_logoYou get a lawsuit, and YOU get a lawsuit ... the Florida couple who thought they could pull a fast one on OWN by pretending they were Oprah Winfrey's assistants, employees and even family members are about to find out in court why that was a very bad idea. 

According to the lawsuit Justin Jackson and alleged accomplice Angel Agarrat pretended to be tight with Oprah in order to scam businesses like Converse, Pandora and Tory Burch out of thousands of dollars in merchandise, and that's just the start.

A new lawsuit filed by OWN claims the couple would send letters with Oprah's forged signature to businesses to secure merchandise. The suit claims the goods were for Oprah's coveted holiday special.

The couple also allegedly peddled fake letters of recommendations to get hired at several swank Miami hotels, including the Fontainebleau.

OWN claims their big mistake came when they tried to score free tix to see O at American Airlines arena, posing as Johnny Depp's management team. Jackson called OWN to get the tickets, but Oprah's people wanted to know who was picking up the tickets. Jackson sent a pic of him, which allowed them to ID and finger him.

Jackson apparently has a history ... in 2007 he pretended to be Madonna's manager and scored nearly $2.4 mil in jewelry -- before being busted and convicted of felony grand theft.

OWN wants a judge to order them to stop, STAT!

Video Vixen K Diamond

I Was Held Hostage in a Lyft!!!

update_graphic_red_bar

1:15 PM PT -- A rep for Lyft tells TMZ drivers are obligated to return belongings to passengers and that it is against policy for a driver to request cash from passengers for any reason. They have not yet received a formal complaint about the incident but are standing by to assist and support her in any way. Passenger safety is the company's first priority.

update_grey_gray_bar

A video vixen claims she was kidnapped by a Lyft driver and taken on a ride a là "The French Connection."

K Diamond claims she hired a Lyft -- in case you don't know, it's a company like Uber -- to take her home early Friday morning from an event in Atlanta. 

Diamond says she was safely deposited at home but shortly after walking in the door she realized she had left her $400 set of Beats by Dre headphones in the backseat.

0417-SUB-Beats-i-am-kdiamond-TWITTER-01

She contacted the driver and 30 minutes later got a call from him. He said he'd gladly return ... for $20.

This is where things get hinky. Diamond told police she only had $5 cash, but didn't fess up to the driver on the phone. When he arrived, he rolled down the window and asked for the $20 spot. She says she put her hand in the window with the $5 bill, and apparently he got pissed and rolled the window up on her arm.

She says she then opened the car door and he rolled down the window, but as she grabbed for the headphones she says he took off with the passenger door open. She says her legs were flailing in the air as the car sped off, with her inside.

She says she was trying to stop the car by throwing it into park, grabbing the wheel, honking the horn ... all to no avail. Eventually he took her back home and she says when she got out the driver threw the headphones at her and left.

Diamond has filed a police report claiming false imprisonment. Cops are investigating.

We contacted Lyft ... so far, no word back.

ESPN Reporter Britt McHenry

Obesity Group Pissed

Over Anti-Fat Crack

4/17/2015 9:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0416-britt-mchenry-twitter-01

A powerful obesity group is lashing out at ESPN's Britt McHenry -- demanding she PERSONALLY APOLOGIZE to the tow truck worker she berated over her physical appearance. 

The Obesity Action Coalition -- a leader in the big person community -- says they were disgusted when they watched the video of Britt telling the worker to "lose some weight, baby girl."

"It was wrong and very inappropriate," says OAC honcho James Zervios

The OAC says it's aware of Britt's Twitter apology -- but says they group is demanding more action.

 

"Britt should apologize to the woman directly. I think the apology on Twitter was more about explaining herself to her employer and the people who follow her."

"The fact remains she made a comment about someone's weight. She wouldn't have done that with any other disease. If she was battling cancer, she wouldn't attack that. But she attacked her weight."

The OAC says they would like to speak with Britt -- because they strongly believe "she could benefit from some expertise and knowledge about obesity and weight bias."

Kim Richards

Watching Reunion Show

Drove Her to Drink

4/17/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards Arrest DrinkingKim Richards just broke from stress when she was arrested early Thursday at the swanky Beverly Hills Hotel.

Sources very close to Kim as well as sources connected with "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" tell TMZ, she was unable to cope with some pretty terrible things going on in her life.

-- Her ex-husband Monty, who still lives with her, is dying of stage 4 cancer.

-- Her son Chad was released from UCLA Medical Center hours before the meltdown.

-- She's under financial stress. Contrary to reports, she's getting no money for child support.

-- Kim is trying to plan her daughter Brooke's official wedding. 

But the real trigger ... we're told earlier in the evening, Kim went to Brooke's house, where they watched the 3-part reunion. Kim had put it off because it was too upsetting, but she had to binge watch in order to fulfill her obligation to blog about the shows. And reliving what went down crushed her.

We're told Kim has been deeply upset over Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna. Kim believes Vanderpump had intentionally driven a wedge between her and sister Kyle. On the show, Vanderpump urged them to reconcile, but Kim claims off camera Vanderpump told Kyle that Kim didn't want her at Brooke's wedding ... which infuriated Kyle and deeply hurt Kim.

0417-kim-richards-swipe-splashOur sources say the cumulative stress was too much for Kim to bear. We're told she left Brooke's house and ended up alone at the Polo Lounge at the Bev Hills Hotel. It's unclear what if anything she drank there, but Kim has told friends a group of people at a table invited her to sit at around 1:30 AM, but the maitre d' wasn't having it and ordered Kim out.

As we reported, the hotel people say Kim got belligerent, wouldn't leave the restaurant, ended up in the bathroom where cops dragged her out. She was booked for public drunkenness, resisting arrest, trespass and battery on a cop.

Simon Cowell

Zayn Who???

One Direction's Better Than Ever

4/17/2015 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Maybe Zayn Malik should've left One Direction long ago ... is what you might think after hearing the group's producer Simon Cowell gush about the new foursome.

Simon's been mum about Zayn's departure, but finally spoke out Thursday night on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" -- and revealed how he reacted when he first got the news. Think hara-kiri.

More importantly to 1Ders everywhere ... Cowell leaked a few details about the upcoming album -- and applauds Harry Styles and the other 3 (sorry, guys) ... for not missing a beat right after Zayn bailed.

Watch and listen closely to Simon -- he's either putting the best spin possible on a bad sitch, or the group really is better now.
