Lamar Odom Prosecution for Coke Possession Unlikely

11/28/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-lamar-odom-tmz-01Lamar Odom is in desperate shape medically, but legally we're told he may get cut a break.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the Nye County D.A. in Nevada is backing off the statements made by the Sheriff, who said there was a strong chance Lamar would be prosecuted for cocaine possession. 

TMZ broke the story, Lamar's blood revealed he was high on coke when he fell into unconsciousness at the Love Ranch brothel.

Our sources tell us the D.A. now says they will consider Lamar's medical condition and mental state in deciding whether to charge him. We broke the story, Lamar is barely able to speak and cannot walk. His cognitive functions are also severely impaired. 

Fact is ... the D.A. really isn't cutting Lamar a special break, because we did some checking and couldn't find a single case in Nye County where someone was prosecuted for cocaine possession when they landed in the hospital with severe damage. 

And there's another factor ... we're told Lamar is so bad off, he might not even be legally competent to stand trial.


'Twin Peaks' Reboot Reveals Agent Cooper's Fate (Spoiler Alert ... Maybe)

11/28/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Showtime's "Twin Peaks" revival will tackle one HUGE unanswered question -- whether Kyle MacLachlan's character, Dale Cooper, is still possessed and doing evil. 

Ok, here's your spoiler alert ... because our sources on the set have found some big hints.

When the series ended nearly 25 years ago, Agent Cooper was possessed by Laura Palmer’s killer, the evil spirit BOB. We're told Kyle was on set recently shooting scenes for a plot line where Agent Cooper is arrested and jailed for crimes. 

For all you Twin Peaks sleuths ... here are the on set clues: 

- Cops find evidence in Cooper's car ... a dog leg, a kilo of cocaine and a machine gun

- Cops interrogate Cooper in a prison cell 

It’s still unclear if possessed Cooper or the real deal is behind the crime or crimes. And whether his crimes include murdering Laura Palmer … we’ll have to wait and see.

Also, can we pleeeeease finally find out how the hell Annie's been???

11/27/2015 6:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0629-jahlil-okafor-GETTY-01The man who got socked in the face by NBA star Jahlil Okafor says Jahlil is lying about being heckled ... and got violent because he was mad he got rejected by two chicks on the streets of Boston.

The Boston PD says the victim filed a police report Friday morning, claiming Okafor hit him so square in the face, he sustained a cut above his eye that required stitches.

The victim also says Okafor's allegations that he was swarmed by hecklers outside of Storyville nightclub is pure garbage.

The truth, according to the victim, is that Okafor approached two girls that were hanging with the victim and tried to get their numbers.  The girls weren't interested, and shot Okafor down.

The victim claims a verbal altercation ensued ... and Okafor became unhinged, eventually rushing at him and punching him in the face ... as you can see in the video first posted by TMZ Sports.

The Boston PD says detectives are "actively investigating the incident" ... but so far no charges have been filed.

As for Okafor, he says he's embarrassed by the incident, but stands by his story that he reacted because he felt threatened by hecklers.

Disney & Marvel You Steal Elsa & Spider-Man ... We'll Sue for MILLIONS!

11/28/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-frozen-marvel-southamerica-01Mickey Mouse, Elsa and some superheroes are in a Venezuelan standoff (like a Mexican one, but further south) with a company accused of putting on a bootleg live Disney show.

Disney says it fired off a cease and desist letter last year to the producers of “Aventura Congeladas” (translation: “Frozen Adventure”) ... demanding they kill all marketing and promotion of the show because it jacked mouse house characters.   

The producers complied at first, but in a new lawsuit Disney says the show eventually started up again under a new name -- "Vacaciones de Aventuras" (translation: "Adventure Holidays") -- and added Marvel heroes like Spider-Man and Captain America.

Of course, Disney owns Marvel, so for them that's no bueno ... hence, the lawsuit. 

Check out a clip of the live production -- Iron Man, Thor, Princesses Elsa and Anna, Olaf and many more make cameos. Disney's lawsuit demands millions for use of its trademarks.

They won't dejalo ir! (That's "let it go" for the gringos.) 

'RHOC' Star Gretchen Rossi This Laser's Like an ... Eraser To My Face

11/28/2015 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

They say no beauty without pain, but Gretchen Rossi barely broke a sweat going under the laser.

It's crazy to watch ... you can see the before and after instantly as she undergoes a procedure called coolaser. It looks like it's gotta hurt -- as the beam wipes away sun damage -- but Gretchen barely flinches. 

Dr. Simon Ourian, who did Gretchen's treatment, tells us it took about 10 minutes and will take 2 days before she's camera ready. Several other 'Housewives' -- Lisa VanderpumpLisa Rinna and Kim Zolciak -- have gone under the beam.

Coolaser will set you back $5k -- more than the average boob job.

Not that we're pushing one procedure over the other. Just sayin' ...

Exclusive Details

1127-yasiel-puig-tmz-01Yasiel Puig was involved in a massive brawl at a Miami bar after the Dodgers star got physical with his sister and struck several staffers ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We spoke with employees at Blue Martini in Miami, who tell us Puig was drinking with his sister Wednesday night when they got into a heated argument ... and things escalated when he pushed her.

Bar staffers immediately rushed over to break it up, but Puig turned on them ... getting physical with several staffers.

The crew was eventually able to get Puig outside where they say he brutally sucker punched the manager, setting off a brawl.

Several staffers rushed in to help ... jumping all over Yasiel until he was restrained.

We're told cops responded, but Puig was not arrested.  Staffers are considering whether to press charges.

We reached out to Puig's camp, so far no word back.


3:45PM PT -- TMZ Sports spoke to a rep for the City of Miami PD who tells us a report was filed which notes Yasiel Puig suffered a "swollen left eye, and bumps and bruises to the face."

The report also says a bouncer suffered "a busted lip."

Cops say they believe the incident was "mutual combat" and both sides have told them charges will not be pressed.



Joe Jonas I'm Not a Homeowner No More

11/27/2015 1:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1127-joe-jonas-house-wea-01Joe Jonas pocketed more than enough money to throw a Thanksgiving feast in his new rental, because we've learned he just sold his Hollywood Hills home.

Joe was living at the base of the Hills in WeHo, but after a year of home ownership he decided to move on.  He sold the 3 bedroom house with the help of WEA real estate co. for $2,895,000 ... the asking price.

Joe didn't do badly.  He bought the house for $2,595,000, so with real estate commissions and whatever improvements he made, he did fine.

He's living in an Airbnb while he decides on his next move.

Jared Leto Makes Nice with Angry Neighbors ... Offers Peace Pie

11/27/2015 7:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1127-jared-leto-pie-twitter-01Jared Leto used the tried and true way to win over the neighbors who had an ax to grind with him .... he sent them all pumpkin pies.

TMZ broke the story, Jared had a crazy Halloween party shortly after moving in to his Laurel Canyon neighborhood in L.A., pissing off neighbors.  They said his guests "wreaked havoc" in the neighborhood, and one person even called him a "d***" for not getting guests a shuttle service.

But pies from Whole Foods are the way to make things right, and we're guessing it worked.

11/27/2015 6:43 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1127-kardasian-dinner-launch-02Kylie Jenner posted a  beautiful Thanksgiving family pic with the caption, "Thankful for my blended family."  

It's interesting she refers to the fam as "blended," since the Kardashians and Jenner girls have been living as one since Kylie was born.

So, blended how?  And who's the dude in the camo shirt?
