Bobbi Kristina

Autopsy Shows No Evidence of Foul Play

7/27/2015 2:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0202-bobbi-kristina-getty-7There are no obvious signs someone tried to kill Bobbi Kristina ... this according to the preliminary autopsy results.

According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner, the autopsy shows "no obvious underlying cause of death."  The Medical Examiner goes on to say, "no significant injuries were noted."

Short story ... this could help Nick Gordon, who has been under the police microscope from the get-go.

The report says there were no previously unknown medical conditions that could have rendered Bobbi Kristina unconscious in the bathtub.

But the Medical Examiner says he has subpoenaed medical records, presumably from the hospital, to determine if drug testing after the accident was relevant. Gordon has said both he and Bobbi Kristina had been doing drugs and she took too much.

The Medical Examiner says he will not determine a cause of death until he reviews the records.

Burglarized

update_grey_gray_bar

Rob Schneider's home was burglarized Friday night and uber-expensive jewelry was taken, but nothing as expensive as an ultra-rare baseball card.

The "Deuce Bigalow" star was at the Comedy Film Festival in Montreal, and his wife and kid were out to dinner in L.A. when the thieves broke into their Encino home. They made off with his wife's diamond engagement ring, a Cartier watch and other expensive items.

But the biggest ticket item ... a mint condition 1951 Bowman Willie Mays rookie card ... valued at $175,000.

Rob famously collects old baseball cards, especially from the '50s and '60s. The thieves also made off with a 1953 Willie Mays Topps and a 1971 as well.  The Willie Mays cards were separate from Rob's main card collection, which the thieves didn't find.

One source familiar with the investigation tells TMZ ... the Willie Mays card is so rare, it will be difficult or impossible to fence it.

Bobbi Kristina

Whitney Decides Where Money Goes

7/27/2015 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0727-whitney-houston-bobbi-getty-instagramBobbi Kristina was set to inherit at least $20 million when Whitney Houston died, but there were strings attached and it looks like most of that fortune will be determined by Whitney's wishes ... not her daughter's.

We've seen a copy of Whitney's will, which established a trust in which Bobbi Kristina got 1/10 of Whitney's estate when she turned 21.  

Bobbi Kristina was set to get 1/6 of the balance when she turned 25, but that will not happen since she died tragically at 22.

Whitney's will provided that if Bobbi Kristina died before reaching 25, all the money would go to the people Whitney designated. Translation, Bobbi Kristina had no authority to give away 9/10 of Whitney's fortune.

As for who Whitney designated ... mother Cissy and brothers Michael and Gary. The will also gives Bobby Brown a cut, but there's an issue. The will is worded to "my husband, Robert B. Brown." Obviously, the will was drafted before they divorced in 2007, and the issue is whether Bobby still qualifies since he is no longer her husband.

According to the law of New Jersey, where the will was drafted, Bobby will NOT get the money because being Whitney's husband is a qualifier which he no longer meets.

We're told Joe's family wants him flown back to the U.S. for further treatment, but for now it's too dicey.

0203-bobbi-kristina-instagram-4The investigation into the circumstances that led to Bobbi Kristina's death Sunday has just been amped up ... TMZ has learned it's now officially a homicide investigation.

EXCLUSIVE

0727-wes-scantlin-mugshot-01

Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin has been arrested yet again ... this time in Minnesota for allegedly driving while intoxicated -- a whopping four times the legal limit -- and leading cops on a 100 MPH chase.  

According to the Renville County Sheriff’s Department, Scantlin was initially spotted speeding and led the arresting officer on a high-speed pursuit … with speeds reaching approximately 100 MPH.

The arresting officer said in his report … when he finally pulled Scantlin over, he was slurring his words and smelled of alcohol. 

The officer says he then administered a preliminary breathalyzer test and Scantlin blew a .310 … a whopping FOUR TIMES the legal limit. 

He was eventually charged with DWI and fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle. Since Scantlin refused to submit to further testing, he was charged for that too.

Scantlin had prior arrests for drug possession in 2012 and domestic violence in 2013.

Bobbi Kristina

Dead at 22

EXCLUSIVE

0702_bobbi_kristina_getty

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's daughter Bobbi Kristina has died at the age of 22.

She passed away outside Atlanta in the hospice care facility where she's been since June 24 ... when her family decided to take her off all meds. As we first reported, a specialist had told them there was no chance of recovery

The family says Bobbi Kristina was surrounded by family and, "She is finally at peace in the arms of God."

Bobbi Kristina was found submerged in her bathtub on January 31, and police believe she was underwater for anywhere between 2 and 5 minutes. Paramedics were able to resuscitate her, but she was in a medically induced coma and placed on life support. 

Ultimately, Pat Houston and Bobby -- co-guardians for Bobbi Kristina -- had to make the decision to withdraw medications. It was a rare moment of agreement for the Browns and Houstons ... who had battled about BK's condition throughout her hospitalization.

TMZ broke the story ... the D.A. has been gearing up for a murder case, and her boyfriend Nick Gordon would be their first person of interest. Police said there were bruises on Bobbi Kristina's face and body after Gordon and a friend, Max Lomas, found her in the tub.

Of course, Whitney died from a drug overdose in 2012 while sitting in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
