Scientology Leader's Father Snapped in Nazi Uniform Son Disowns Him

4/29/2016 6:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

429-ron-miscavige-tmzThe father of Scientology leader David Miscavige appeared on 20/20 Friday night as a victim of his son's wrath, but sources connected with the Church say his dad is the real bad guy.

Church sources tout this pic of Ronald Miscavige in a Nazi uniform, taken a few years back. They also point to several letters sent to a publisher of a book Ronald wrote about his time in Scientology, warning them Ronald was a racist who was not afraid to hurl the n-word. One of the musicians claims one of Ronald's favorite lines was to sing and chant, "There is a n***** in the alley with a hard-on, spread the lard on, rub it in." They say he'd sing it to the tune of the National Emblem March.

Ron's people tell us the letters were sent at the behest of the Church to block publication of the book.

A rep for the church tells TMZ "The behavior exhibited in this photo and described in the letters is an anathema to David Miscavige and was what compelled him to try to find a way to keep his father in check." The rep says David has now disowned his dad. 

Ronald has said for several years ... when he quit the Church they hired private investigators to keep tabs on him. A church attorney said it hired the guys, not David ... and didn't even tell him.  However, as we reported earlier, cops say when they questioned the P.I.'s, one of them said when they thought Ron was having a heart attack they spoke with David who told them not to call 911 ... just to let him die.

Breaking News

0429-beyonce-world-formation-tour-GETTY-01Beyonce just pulled the plug on the Nashville stop of her tour, one week before she was set to play there.

The concert was supposed to go down at Nissan Stadium, where the Tennessee Titans play. The stadium's been undergoing some major renovations, including new seats ... so it's possible that's behind the change.

The show's expected to be rescheduled, but no date's been announced.

'Trailer Park Boys' Star Battery Case Dropped

4/29/2016 2:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429_Bubbles-from-Trailer-Park-Boys_gettyMichael Smith -- aka Bubbles from "Trailer Park Boys" -- just got a huge break from the L.A. City Attorney ... who rejected his domestic battery case due to insufficient evidence. 

We broke the story ... Bubbles was booked for misdemeanor domestic battery after witnesses told cops he choked a woman near the pool at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel. 

Sources close to Michael and the woman tell us they're baffled the case was dropped since cops took photos of the alleged victim's bruises and torn clothing.

We're told the woman referred to Smith as her boyfriend, and our sources say they're worried Smith pressured her into not cooperating with cops.

Prince Cops Search Singer's Pharmacy for Clues

4/29/2016 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

428-prince-gettyAuthorities descended on a Walgreens near Paisley Park and served a search warrant on the pharmacy, TMZ has learned, looking for a prescription paper trail that could unravel the cause of Prince's death.

It's the same drug store chain where Prince made 4 Rx runs in the week leading up to his death.

We're told investigators made their move Thursday. Once inside, they beelined it for the pharmacy and spent several hours combing through records.

As we reported, authorities are especially interested in Percocet ... the drug that triggered a near-fatal OD 6 days before Prince's death. They're also looking for other prescriptions in Prince's name or identifiable aliases.

We're told investigators are also targeting other pharmacies and doctors who may have helped Prince procure meds.

Sir Mix-A-Lot Beyonce Got It Wrong ... Real Beckys Got Whack Ass Hair

4/29/2016 1:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-sir-mix-a-lot-becky-twitter-def-american-01The only person who knows "Becky" better than Beyonce -- and allegedly Jay Z -- is Sir Mix-A-Lot ... and he says Bey's description of the thot is way off base.

Of course, Mix first made the name famous with his ass anthem -- and tells us he actually dated a Becky back in the day whose hair was far from good! In fact, she was bald and "wore a patch on her eye just because. Her nickname was sketch."

Mix-A-Lot also says not all Beckys are created equal -- "Becky from Calabasas has no game and she would be the side chick for an ax murderer. However, Becky from the block don't play dat s***!"

As for Bey calling out Jay, he gives her props for "saying what she feels while simultaneously earning money."

Y'know, Mix ... he's down to get the friction on.

Prince 'Friendly' Doctor Prescribed Powerful Drugs

4/29/2016 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42716-prince-gettyPrince was able to get his supply of prescription drugs from more than one doctor ... and at least one of them was a "personal friend" of Prince ... this according to members of the singer's family.

TMZ broke the story ... Prince developed an addiction to Percocet sometime before his hip surgery in 2010, and almost died from an overdose 6 days before his death.

What's significant ... Percocet is a controlled substance, and a single doctor who prescribes an excessive number of pills will be flagged by state and federal authorities. As a result, as in Michael Jackson's case, someone addicted to a drug who needs more than the medically necessary amount will doctor shop.

As we reported, Prince went to a local Walgreens pharmacy 4 times in the week he died to fill prescriptions. Our sources say authorities are on the hunt for the various doctors who prescribed and pharmacies that filled Prince's prescriptions. We're told authorities are also interested in possible aliases the singer might have used. 

As for at least one of the doctors being friends with Prince, it may have shades of Michael Jackson. In Jackson's case, a number of doctors crossed the line by prescribing drugs that were not medically necessary, in order to ingratiate themselves with the singer.

EXCLUSIVE

0429_verne_troyer_vaping_stroller_launchVerne Troyer is one bad baby -- at least that's what some angry parents assumed when he disguised himself as a vaping toddler out for a stroll.

Verne and his "dad" -- YouTube star Roman Atwood -- seemed to piss off and fool plenty of passersby Thursday as they strolled up and down Hollywood Boulevard.

We'd like to believe this is just how Verne normally gets around town -- but we're told the weird moment was being filmed for one of Atwood's YouTube prank videos.

Michael Strahan Blindsided by Ripa Taking Divorce Cheap Shot

4/29/2016 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

The gloves are off ... and Michael Strahan got that message loud and clear when Kelly Ripa dropped an unscripted jab at him over divorce, TMZ has learned. 

Sources connected to production tell us Ripa's intro to a segment about divorced couples was a total shock to Strahan. If you missed it -- Kelly innocently turned to her co-host and said, "So, you've gotten divorced ..."

We're told the look of shock on his face was 100% authentic.

Of course, both Kelly and Michael knew they were doing the segment, but we're told he had NO IDEA she was going to raise his divorce as part of it. If it looks like a cheap shot, that's exactly how Michael and others on set took it ... according to our sources.

Strahan played it off on the air this time, but these last 2 weeks -- before he jumps to 'GMA' full-time -- are gonna get interesting.
