Bobby Brown

Tells Crowd ...

Bobbi Kristina is Awake

4/19/2015 11:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bobby Brown stunned his audience during a concert Saturday night, when he told the crowd, "Bobbi is awake.  She's watching me."

It's unclear what Brown is really saying.  On the one had, if you take the first comment at face value it seems he's saying Bobbi Krisina is out of the coma she's been in since January 31st.

But when Bobby says, "She's watching me," it makes it sound like something other than consciousness.

Bobby made the comment at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, Texas.

Kim Richards

Arrest Puts Her On

'RHOBH' Chopping Block

4/19/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards Real Housewives Of Beverly HillsIf you don't see Kim Richards on the next season of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" it'll be because of her drunken arrest earlier this week ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to production tell us producers feel Kim's substance abuse issues make her a liability. There are insurance issues with the show, and serious concerns that if something happens to Kim, Bravo could be on the hook for keeping her on such a contentious, demanding show. 

We're told a decision has not been made, but the alarm has been sounded and there's serious discussion about giving Kim the ax.

Here's where there's a split. Some production sources says Kim's substance abuse problem has been in full bloom all season. Several members of the cast and crew say they've watched Kim present a public picture of sobriety, but when the cameras are off she goes off the rails.

But other production sources tell us Kim actually did better this season in the sobriety department than she's done in years. They also think it's hypocritical for producers to turn their back on Kim now ... they say if she was such a problem she shouldn't have been exploited all year.

The show still has a few months before production starts back up again, so producers have some time to make their final decision.

In the Toilet

EXCLUSIVE

Mackenzie McKee Marriage"Teen Mom" star Mackenzie McKee may have wrecked more than her car last month when she drove it into a ditch ... because hubby Josh just 86d her ring and walked out for good.

Sources close to the couple say their two year marriage has been on the rocks for a while. The breaking point was when Mackenzie crashed her uninsured, new Kia Sorento. 301 Shakes stepped up and threw her $10k to cover the damage, but it wasn't enough for Josh.

They had a huge blowout last weekend, Josh said he was done, threw her ring in the toilet and stormed out.

When Mackenzie came on TMZ Live, there were warning signs ... she said she crashed because she was out searching for his "no good huntin' hog ass."

If things do go down divorce road ... it won't be too costly, we're told the ring cost $398.

Or in "Teen Mom" terms: about 22 cases of Natty Light.

Dead Wrestler's Dad

Sues the WWE

Pay Up If You're Gonna Exploit My Son

EXCLUSIVE

Eddie Hot Stuff Gilbert Family Sues WWEThe WWE is cashing in on Eddie "Hot Stuff" Gilbert even though he's been dead for 20 years ... at least according to his family, which is dragging the league to court to get a cut of the action.

According to docs ... Eddie's dad, Tommy Gilbert, is in charge of the estate and says the WWE is plastering his son's image and likeness all over TV and other media platforms without permission -- and, more importantly, without paying them a dime.

Tommy says old wrestling footage of Eddie -- a pro from '79 until his death of a heart attack in '95 -- is being used to promote the WWE. 

Interestingly, Eddie's fam isn't suing to block use of the footage -- they just want a judge to force the WWE to fork over a share of its profits, plus damages.

A WWE rep tells us, "Through the years, WWE has acquired the legal rights to library footage of various former wrestling organizations including Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and Mid-Southern Wrestling among many others. WWE has made substantial investments to acquire these copyrighted works and has the legal right to use them."

The rep adds, "Similar cases in the past have been unsuccessful, and we expect this case to be dismissed."

Leo DiCaprio's goatee went for a stroll in NYC Saturday ... the rest of him was undercover.

Leo picked up so many books at Assouline, a luxury book story that sells fancy coffee table books and other artsy stuff.

There's plenty of traffic, but it looks like Leo safely maneuvered around in his newsboy hat.

The perils of being a big star.

Larry King

HGH Baseball Ban is Stupid

4/19/2015 7:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Larry King made a strong case for green-lighting HGH in baseball.

King was leaving Craig's in WeHo Saturday night when our photog asked about the hormone.  

King clearly thinks the ban is ridiculous, comparing it to aspirin.  Larry seems to think of HGH more as a healing Rx than a fountain of youth drug.

Larry also reveals how long he's been on the pill ... and it's a LONG time.

BTW ... Mark Cuban seems open to advocating the use of HGH in professional sports, if the studies support it.

The Game

Cops and I Don't Mix Well

EXCLUSIVE

The Game is in chill mode, temporarily hanging up his basketball jersey and definitely staying clear of cops on the court.

Game's had his troubles lately on the hardwood ... he punched an off-duty cop during a game last month after the 2 got into it.  The cop sued, and Game allegedly attacked a member of the team that served him with the lawsuit.  Police are also investigating the incident.

He makes it clear he's had his problems with cops ... not all of them, but certainly some.  Game acknowledges some cops are good, but he has a game plan when he gets close to those who aren't.

Michael Jai White
's wife surprised him with some fresh ink -- getting his initials tatted on her finger ... just to say thank you for an epic love letter he wrote to her.

If you didn't hear about it ... the "Black Dynamite" star pulled off the romantic move of the year -- pouring his heart out to Gillian in a letter which he posted on Facebook ... just to shame every other husband.

We're told Gillian was so moved ... she headed to T-Man Tattoo in Studio City, CA this week to get the sentimental tattoo. It's the same shop where Michael got her initials a few months ago. 

Howard Teman, owner of the shop, says the whole thing only took about 15 minutes and cost $90, plus tip. He says Gillian was so touched by Michael's open letter because he's normally very shy.

Smooth move on both their parts. Guys -- read and learn.
