Cissy Houston

Bobbi Kristina's Brain Damage ... 'Irreversible'

Remains Unresponsive

4/20/2015 5:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0420_Cissy-Houston_bobbi_kristina_getty_instagramBobbi Kristina is suffering from irreversible global brain damage and is completely unresponsive ... so says her grandmother Cissy Houston

Cissy tells TMZ, "Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me."

She squarely contradicts Bobby Brown, who claims Bobbi is off life support and somewhat responsive. 

Cissy tells us, "I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive."

Bobbi Kristina's grandma has faint hope, telling us, "We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time. Keep us in your prayers."

It's unclear why the families are so divided.

Bobby Brown

Visits Bobbi Kristina

Conflict Remains Over Condition

4/20/2015 4:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0420-bobby-brown-hospital-meeting-doctor-fameflynet-01A pensive Bobby Brown met with doctors Monday to discuss Bobbi Kristina's condition.

Bobby was outside the DeKalb Medical Center in Decatur, Georgia, days after he announced during a concert that Bobbi Kristina was off life support and somewhat responsive. Bobby Brown's rep tells TMZ Bobbi Kristina's condition has improved and doctors say she'll have "a long life," although the quality of life will not be known for years to come.  

As we reported, the Houston family says it's not true ... they say she's still on life support and her condition has not changed at all.

We also got this pic of Pat Houston visiting Bobbi Kristina.

Lil Wayne

Sparks Music Deal with Pot Biz ...

'Cause It's 4/20 and Stuff

4/20/2015 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne Weed App

Lil Wayne may be the one stoner today who is actually productive -- he just dropped a new music vid on the holy day of pot, and in a brilliant biz move he did it with the help of a popular "weed finding" app.

Wayne teamed up with Weedmaps to release, "Hollyweezy," from his mixtape "Sorry for the Wait 2."

We're told Weezy is partnering up with the company -- which pinpoints nearby medical marijuana dispensaries -- because he is a longtime advocate for legalization and reform. Also couldn't hurt that the site will get a ton of traffic on 4/20 ... and therefore more eyes on his video.

Wayne appropriately dropped the vid at 2:20 PM. Just kidding, of course it debuted at 4:20 PM EST.

Now grab your bag of gummy bears and enjoy.

Damon Dash

Loses Custody to Rachel Roy

EXCLUSIVE

Damon Dash
 just lost custody of the daughters he shares with ex-wife Rachel Roy, and it's probably all news to him ... since he didn't even show up for the hearing. 

Roy just got sole legal and physical custody of 15-year-old Ava and 6-year-old Tallulah. Dash also wanted full custody.

The former couple each accused the other of being an unfit parent. He claimed she drove drunk with one of the girls, and threatened to cut him with a knife. She claimed he smokes weed around the kids. She said all the women and drugs were a bad influence on their daughters.

The judge clearly sided with Rachel, ruling Dash only gets supervised visitation.

Roy also got a three-year restraining order against Dash.

Big Sean & Ariana Grande Split

Sorry Biebs ...

Nothin' To Do With You

4/20/2015 1:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Big Sean Ariana Grande Break UpJustin Bieber is no homewrecker ... at least in this case ... because TMZ has learned that Big Sean and Ariana Grande's split has nothing to do with his mid-concert groping.

Sean and Ariana are history after 8-months of banging, and sources close to the couple say it had nothing to do with Sean's real/fake Twitter outburst after Biebs laid hands on his woman during her show a few weeks back.

We're told the breakup was mutual because they're both constantly touring and just think it's better this way -- but they're staying tight as friends. 

Now Biebs can REALLY make a move ... Kendall Jenner probably won't mind.

As for the terms of the deal ... we're told it will not be revealed in the divorce docs ... it's all part of a confidential settlement. But based on how they've gotten along since the split, it's almost certain they'll share joint custody of their 2 kids. 

We're told the divorce docs will cite irreconcilable differences, but it's all very amicable.

Warren Sapp

Video Of Hooker Arrest

'Stop Talking And Oral Me'

4/20/2015 11:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained footage of Warren Sapp speaking with cops moments after his Feb. 2nd prostitution arrest in Arizona -- in which he says he told a talkative hooker to shut up and use her mouth for other things instead.  

In the video, which was recorded by law enforcement, Warren explains his side of the story ... how he picked up two women in a Phoenix hotel bar and offered them money for sexual favors.  

"I put the $600 dollars on the table, everybody got naked," Sapp explained.  

At one point, Sapp says one of the escorts started talking ... so he told her, "Why don't you use your mouth on me, instead of using it?!" 

During the video, Sapp says he was snapping photos and joking around with the women because ... as he put it ... "I'm silly like that sometimes."

At one point during the interview, Sapp realizes he's going to jail -- and has a bit of a mental breakdown.

Sapp says a dispute began when one of the women asked for a "tip" -- and he told both of the women to leave. Sapp says one of the women grabbed his cell phone and called hotel security.

Sapp says the woman then spit on him -- which angered the other escort ... and the two women began to argue.

Eventually, Sapp says the argument spilled into the hallway ... and he chased after them while naked to get his phone back. 

Luckily, Sapp says the dead bolt kept the door from closing and he went back into the room.

Warren was charged with two counts of assault and one count of soliciting prostitution. Sapp denies ever laying a hand (aggressively) on either woman. 

If convicted, he faces up to six months in jail.

Law enforcement sources tell us Steelo and porn star Mary Jean were hanging out Friday night, but she claims things went south fast. Mary says she told cops ... while she was driving Steelo wanted sex, and when she refused he grabbed her crotch, punched her breasts, and said "this belongs to me."

Here's where the story gets really strange. Steelo says Mary refused to let him out of the car, and threatened to tell people he had raped her ... if he got out. Steelo says he weighed his options and decided to leap from the moving car. He says he tucked and rolled on the street ... injuring his arm and his Rolex. 

Steelo denies assaulting Mary ... who went straight to police after he escaped, and reported the alleged sexual assault.  

Mary denies blocking Steelo from getting out of the car, and says he could have fled at a stop light. She says she was trying to take him to police.

Police are investigating Mary Jean's claims. Steelo tells us he hasn't spoken to cops yet, and no charges have been filed.

Bobby and Tina Brown are absolutely wrong ... Bobbi Kristina is not off life support and remains unresponsive ... this according to the Houston family.

Sources connected with the Houstons tell TMZ, they have no idea where Bobby Brown is getting his information that Bobbi Kristina was awake, nor do they know why Tina said she's awake and no longer on life support.  Gossip Cop first reported the conflicting positions between the Browns and the Houstons.

We're told the Houstons are clear ... "She's in the exact same condition she was in when she went into the facility." They say there is "minimal" reaction ... an occasional eye blink, but that's it.

The Houstons say Bobbi Kristina is still on a ventilator.

Rihanna AssIt's funny that Rihanna is the one in Hawaii ... because we're the ones enjoying the view.

RiRi is island side for the marriage of long time assistant Jennifer Rosales -- going down Monday -- but instead of taking in epic shots of perfect sunsets, she spent a lot of time this weekend snapping selfies of her perfect parts ... and we ain't complaining.

Front,  back, side to side ... she definitely got all the angles ... but the trip isn't about her, right? It's about love and marriage and ... blah, blah, blah.

That pizza slice bathing suit is on point ... and if she's offering, we'll take a piece.
