Bobbi Kristina

Death Photo Sold

7 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803-bobbi-kristina-instagramA photo of Bobbi Kristina's body, lying in her casket, has been sold to a media outlet ... and TMZ has learned the bidding soared into the six figures. 

According to our sources, someone snapped a pic of BK during the viewing, which took place the day before the funeral. We're told the winning offer topped the $100,000 mark. 

Our sources say members of the Brown and Houston families are blaming each other for the pic, which was snapped despite all the precautionary measures.

As TMZ first reported, the Browns were worried the Houstons might pull this stunt, since it happened at Whitney Houston's funeral in 2012.

'Bad Girls Club' Natalie Nunn

Huge Street Brawl

... That's My Uber!!

8/3/2015 8:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Video

Messing with ex "Bad Girls Club" star Natalie Nunn while she's trying to catch an Uber is a great way to start a massive street fight -- and this one was caught on video.

It all went down Sunday night in Sacramento when Natalie and her husband were leaving a nightclub. Natalie's rep says they had an Uber waiting, but another couple tried to jack their ride.

Of course, Natalie wasn't having it ('Bad Girl' for life and all) ... but she says the guy half of the couple immediately started swinging, and then all hell broke loose.

The fight is insane ... and Natalie claims the guy actually connected with her face. Cops did respond, but no charges were filed and no one was arrested.

Lets Her Hips Do the Work!

0803-ronda-rousey-rio-akmgsiRonda Rousey celebrated her weekend victory over Brazilian Bethe Correia by rubbing a little salt in the wound ... Brazilian style.

Ronda stayed in Brazil on Sunday and took in a soccer game, and even busted out the national dance -- the samba -- while she was there.

Almost makes you forget she can break nearly every person alive in half with her bare hands.

Britney Spears

Lifetime Conservatorship

8/3/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0802-britney-spears-01

Britney Spears has been under a remarkably successful conservatorship for 7 1/2 years, and sources familiar with the situation tell us it could last a lifetime.

We're told there are no plans to end the conservatorship, even in the long term, and no one involved is complaining. As TMZ and every other media outlet reported, Britney was so bad off at the end of 2007 her family was in fear she would die.

After she was taken to the hospital on a psych hold, her dad, Jamie Spears, went to court and a conservatorship was established in January 2008. There are actually 2 conservatorships ... one for the person, and one for finances.  

Fact is ... the conservatorships have worked remarkably well. Britney -- who at her worst was on the verge of losing permanent custody of her kids -- is now by any standard a great parent. Jamie and Britney's doctors have stabilized her to the point she can successfully work and maintain a personal life.

As for the financial conservatorship, it has been a huge success. Last year alone the conservatorship raked in $14 million, and that's only a portion of Britney's financial machine. As one source said, before the conservatorship her finances were an absolute mess, and the ship has been fully righted. 

We're told Britney -- who has a team of lawyers and doctors, along with Jamie, managing the conservatorship -- has "substantial day-to-day freedom" to make her own decisions.

Short story ... if the conservatorship were to end, there would be significant risk she could backslide. The plan is to continue the conservatorship indefinitely ... because it works.

Jericho the Lion

High Alert

For Poachers and Hunters

8/3/2015 12:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0802-jericho-lion-SPLASH-01Jericho the lion has a security team to ensure he isn't hunted and killed like his kindred spirit, Cecil.

An official from the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force tells TMZ, a research team is monitoring Jericho's every move and are ready to pounce if anything looks suspicious.

Jericho has taken over alpha male duties for the pride, and if he's killed the animals that were once under Cecil's watch will be unprotected in the wild.

Researchers are tracking Jericho as best they can with a GPS device.

A report surfaced Saturday that Jericho was killed, which thankfully turned out to be false.  

Officials in Zimbabwe have put a ban on hunting lions around the park in question, and if any poachers are spotted in the area, authorities will take swift action.

Bethenny Frankel

I Can Chug With This 6-Pack

8/3/2015 8:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0803-bethenny-frankel-bikini-splashBethenny Frankel is her own best walking advertisement.  

Frankel -- who's 44, by the way -- looked more ripped than the Atlantic cooling off in the Hamptons with a Skinnygirl beverage in hand. 

The New York 'Housewife' was there for "Paddle for Pink," a paddleboarding charity event that raises money for breast cancer awareness.

Exercise and a healthy diet ... sure do Bethenny's body good. That string bikini doesn't hurt either.

Slipknot

Bassist Rushed to Hospital During Concert

8/3/2015 6:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0731-alessandro-vman-getty-facebookThe bassist for Slipknot was rushed to the hospital by ambulance in the middle of the band's performance.

Alessandro "V Man" Venturella got onstage with the band Sunday night in Hartford, Connecticut but after a few songs the band abruptly stopped and went backstage. They returned minus V Man, and lead singer Corey Taylor told the audience, "I'm sorry to say that our bass player, Alex, had ... something happened."

We've learned Alex was rushed to the hospital for convulsions. It's unclear what his condition is this morning. The band continued its performance.

Slipknot's original bassist, Paul Gray, died in 2010 from an OD.

'Ice Road Trucker'

Wasted On a Plane

... Cops Called

8/3/2015 6:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803-darrell-ward-facebookDarrell Ward, one of the "Ice Road Truckers," got hauled off an LAX flight by cops for an alleged FUI ... flying under the influence of tons of booze.

Law enforcement sources tell us Ward was escorted off an Alaska Airlines flight shortly before takeoff Saturday evening because he was liquored up and screaming at a gate agent.

Ward must've realized he was on thin ice -- as in, about to get arrested -- because he calmed way down when officers arrived, and his good attitude paid off. The airline booked him on another flight ... and cops allowed him to sleep it off in the airport.

One more thing ... we're told cops informed Ward he was being recorded on security cameras -- and Ward said he was used to cameras, since he's on 'IRT.'

Weakest play ever of the "do you know who I am" card.

I'm So Pissed Off Trump's #1

8/3/2015 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

D.L. Hughley trashed Donald Trump, the other Republican candidates and voters all in around 60 seconds. 

Hughley was at LAX Sunday when our photog asked about Trump's ascendance in the polls to #1 among Republican hopefuls. 

Hughley is either disinterested or unaware of what has become apparent to many ... Trump has become the anti-establishment candidate who is a symbol of American's disdain for politicians.

Leslie Jordan

When I Tossed the Tea at the Hooligans

'I Was So Butch'

8/3/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Leslie Jordan says he's never been so scared in his life when he confronted 3 guys after one of them hurled a homophobic slur.

As TMZ reported, Leslie was at Starbucks on Santa Monica Blvd in WeHo this week when 3 guys came up, caused a scene and were asked to leave. One allegedly screamed, "f****** f******" on the way out. Leslie ran out to confront them, he says one raised his fists and Leslie doused him with delicious tea.

You gotta listen to the video ... it's like the cops played "Let's Make a Deal" with the actor as he noodled over whether to press charges.
