Michael Jackson Someone Pulls a Fast One To Grab Michael's Home

5/6/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

505-jackson-hayvenhurst-home-apSomeone secretly filed legal documents aimed at taking Michael Jackson's Hayvenhurst family home away from his estate and deeding it to Katherine Jackson and MJ's kids.

TMZ obtained the deed which was filed with the L.A. County Recorder's Office. It claims to transfer the long-standing family home in Encino from Michael Jackson to Katherine, Blanket, Paris and Prince. According to the deed, each now has a 25% ownership interest in the home.


It's a weird, suspicious document, but we've verified with the notary public who was there when it was signed that Katherine herself put pen to paper at her home in Calabasas.

As for why it's weird ... it's handwritten, and the deed is not signed although an attachment bears her signature. What's even more hinky ... the person granting the deed is Michael J. Jackson, which is impossible because he's long dead. The estate of Michael Jackson owns the property. The document was signed April 21st and recorded 5 days later.

What we don't know ... is Katherine the mastermind of the ploy or did someone just get her to sign the attachment without telling her it would filed with a quitclaim deed?

We've learned the estate reps had no idea this document had been filed. As we've been reporting for years, Katherine has been bent out of shape for years, claiming the estate has been stingy with her family.

For all sorts of reasons the attempt to transfer the property won't work, but it's evidence of a continuing conflict between the estate and Katherine.

Prince 911 Caller Tight-Lipped During Death Investigation

5/6/2016 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

505-launch-andrew-kornfeld-tmzAndrew Kornfeld, the man who flew to Prince's home on a thwarted rescue mission that ended with his call to 911, made it clear to a photog Thursday ... he wasn't going to talk about the ongoing criminal investigation into the singer's death.

Andrew's dad, rehab specialist Dr. Howard Kornfeld, got the call from Prince's rep the day before the singer died, pleading with him to come to Minnesota to save Prince from a fatal OD. The doctor couldn't make it but sent his son, who was in the house when Prince was discovered in the elevator.

As we reported, Andrew is under investigation because when cops arrived they found pills -- a synthetic opiate used to treat Percocet addicts -- in his backpack. Andrew, who is not a doctor, is being investigated for the unauthorized practice of medicine.

The photog got Andrew at a nature preserve in Northern California. 

We also got video Thursday of Dr. Kornfeld outside his rehab facility, Recovery Without Walls, in Marin County, CA. He was also mum.

50 Cent Makes House Call For Disabled Super Fan

5/6/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0505_50cent_disabled-fan_tmz_wm-250 Cent's not the cold-hearted prick he appears to be in that video with an autistic man -- so says a guy who got the best wedding present ever from him, weeks before the infamous airport incident.

The groom, named Chris Brown (yeah, we know) ... tells TMZ he was getting married at the Loews Hotel in Philly last month when word spread 50 Cent was also there. Brown found him and asked for a huge favor.

Brown's brother, Justin, is a Fiddy super fan who suffers from reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome ... which causes chronic pain and confines him to a bed. Brown says he asked 50 to meet Justin, who was in a room at the hotel.

He says 50 said he would "try" to make time, but had several events to attend ... so Brown wasn't sure it would happen. But lo and behold, the rapper showed up -- without an entourage -- and talked to Justin for more than 90 minutes.

Mind you, this was 2 weeks before 50 Cent's run-in with Andrew Farrell ... which Chris says is the exact opposite of his brother's life-changing experience.  

Chris Brown Stay Away From Me And No, I Won't Eat Your ...

5/6/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

505-chris-brown-tmz-2Chris Brown wants to be 100% clear ... he has NO relationship with the woman who keeps getting busted at his home, and he's fed up with her yelling demands for sexual favors.

Chris has been in a standoff with Danielle Patti since she first got arrested for trespassing at his home in December. In new docs, Chris says she continues to harass him -- getting busted a second time and even filing a restraining order against him.

Chris describes quite the scene on at least one of Patti's unwanted visits. According to the docs, she shouts things like, "Chris are you going to eat my p****" and "I love you." He says it's clear she's delusional about having a relationship with Chris.

He was granted a temporary restraining order, forcing her to stay 100 yards away from Chris and one of his bodyguards.

Patti is currently locked up in county jail after a trespassing arrest last month at Chris' place.

Kentucky Derby Thoroughbred Owes It All To Tiger Woods' #1 Mistress

5/6/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0505-suddenbreakingnews-getty-tmz-01Tiger Woods could be a player in this year's Kentucky Derby if a horse named Suddenbreakingnews manages to win, place or show.

Experts say the 3-year-old thoroughbred has an outside shot at taking it all on Saturday -- and if he does, get ready to hear the name Rachel Uchitel, repeatedly. Turns out a mare named Uchitel birthed Suddenbreakingnews.

Sbn is currently at 20-1 odds -- kinda middle of the pack -- to win, and has already overcome 2 big hurdles ... his balls. Or lack thereof.

Kitty Taylor -- who brokered the $72,000 sale of Suddenbreakingnews -- says the horse is a gelding ... meaning his testicles were removed, since they never dropped. We're told it's really rare for a gelding to make it as far as the Derby.

Taylor adds, "Perhaps Tiger should have been gelded at some point."

We know where Elin Nordegren's NOT putting her money.

Dr. Howard Kornfeld Mum On Failed Attempt to Save Prince

5/5/2016 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The doctor who was commissioned to save Prince's life is not talking about the singer or his death.

We got video Thursday of Dr. Howard Kornfeld, arriving at his Marin County, CA rehab facility, Recovery Without Walls.

As we reported, a rep for Prince called Dr. Kornfeld the day before Prince died, saying the singer was in grave danger and the doctor's services were desperately needed. Dr. Kornfeld could not immediately clear his schedule, but he sent his son, who came with a synthetic opiate used to treat people with addiction problems.  

505-prince-on-bike-swipeDr. Kornfeld gingerly locked up his bike ... a weird coincidence given Prince's love of bicycles. One of the last photos of Prince was shot while was was tooling around Paisley Park.

2 Chainz Justin Bieber Got N-Word Status ... But Killed My Fave Sizzurp

5/5/2016 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

2 Chainz is blaming Justin Bieber for getting his codeine cough syrup of choice yanked off shelves -- but he's also giving the Biebs full hood status ... by accident.

The rapper joined the Drink Champs podcast with N.O.R.E and DJ EFN and openly talked about his lean habit, and bemoaned the fact his favorite brand, Actavis, is no longer for sale.

Chainz thinks JB, and a few others, are responsible for the drug's demise -- but watch what happens when he starts backing up the bus.

If this is true ... Bieber better get used to getting pulled over. 


Oscar De La Hoya Praised Trump as 'Great Golfer' (Smoking Gun Video)

5/5/2016 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Before Oscar De La Hoya hit Donald Trump with hardcore cheating allegations -- he was singing Trump's praises as a "great golfer" after personally watching the guy nail an impressive shot. 

Both Oscar -- and George Lopez -- gave video testimony about Trump's incredible golf skills following an outing with the businessman in April 2010 at Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles. 

In the video, obtained by TMZ Sports, Trump walks up to the group, takes a club and crushes a tee shot at the 15th hole ... putting the ball feet from the pin on a par 3 without even warming up. 

"I'm actually very surprised that he hit his tee shot so close to the pin because that was his first shot of the day," Oscar said ... "What does that tell you? He's a great golfer."

George Lopez also went on camera and praised Trump for the shot. 

It's a COMPLETELY different story from the one De La Hoya told this week -- in which he painted Trump as a bumbling cheater who repeatedly tried to pull fast ones on his fellow players. 

But we're told Trump didn't even play with Oscar that day -- he only stepped on the course for that ONE shot and left. He claims it's the only time he's EVER been on a golf course with the boxer.

Arsenio Hall Sues Sinead Over Prince Rant She's a Lying Attention Whore

5/5/2016 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0505-hall-oconner-tmz-01Arsenio Hall just clapped back at Sinead O'Connor with a $5 MILLION defamation lawsuit over her claim he was fueling Prince's habit.

His lawyers, Marty Singer and Lynda Goldman, filed the suit Thursday morning, in which Arsenio calls Sinead a "desperate attention-seeker" for posting an incendiary rant on Facebook earlier this week. She called Prince a "longtime hard drug user" who got his supply from "Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince's and Eddie Murphy's bitch)."

In the suit, Arsenio flat out denies ever supplying Prince with illegal drugs -- and adds, he hasn't had contact with Sinead for 25 years. He also denies spiking her with drugs back in the day ... as she claimed.

As for why she targeted him -- Arsenio says she's repeatedly said she met Prince a couple times and she "detested" him. She also says she told Prince "to go f*** himself."

Arsenio implies this is par for the course with Sinead, saying she is "well known for her media antics and for seeking attention through inflammatory Facebook posts."

Prince Overprescribing Drugs Focus of Criminal Investigation

5/5/2016 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

502-prince-gettyAuthorities in Minnesota have made the overprescribing practices of Prince's doctors the focus of their investigation ... sources connected with the case tell TMZ.

We're told the criminal probe has zeroed in on a drug that almost killed Prince 6 days before his death -- Percocet. TMZ broke the story, EMTs gave Prince a "save shot" at the Moline airport after his plane made an emergency landing.  

We're told law enforcement in Minnesota is looking at 3 possible abuses ... multiple doctors who overprescribed meds to the singer, aliases the singer and his doctors may have used, and multiple pharmacies that filled the prescriptions.

As we reported, Prince had prescriptions filled at least 4 times in the 7 days before he died, and at least one of the pharmacies was 6.1 miles from his home ... much farther than 8 other drug stores.

The DEA announced it is now involved in the investigation, but we're told the agency is only on standby and for now it's a state case.
