Leolah Brown

Booted from Bobbi Kristina's Funeral

8/1/2015 9:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bobbi Kristina's funeral was interrupted Saturday morning by an outburst from Leolah Brown, Bobbi's aunt, who was swiftly removed from the church with the help of Tyler Perry.

An eyewitness tells TMZ, Pat Houston was getting ready to speak when Leolah began screaming, "Pat you know you are wrong for this!"

We're told security descended on Leolah and escorted her out. Tyler Perry followed to help diffuse the situation.

Leolah spoke with photogs outside of the service and made one thing clear ... she says Pat Houston will be haunted by the ghost of Whitney.

As we reported, the Browns and Houstons are feuding again. Several members of Brown's family are upset that Pat Houston has solicited funds instead of flowers for her charity.

Jared Fogle reportedly paid $100 to have sex with a 16-year-old girl ... an encounter he called "amazing."

The FBI has subpoenaed text messages between Jared and a Subway employee with whom he was having a sexual relationship, according to Business Insider, which broke the story.

According to the report, in 2008 Jared wanted the woman to advertise herself on Craigslist to have sex with other men so he could watch.  He allegedly said he'd pay $500 per encounter.   Business Insider says the woman responded, "Is this the same website you found that 16-year-old girl that you f*****?  I still can't believe you only paid $100 to her."

The report says Jared responded, "It was amazing!!!"

The woman says she went to Subway to complain, but the company did nothing.

Fogle's attorney did not respond to Business Insider.

Scott Disick

Remorse Over Breakup

8/1/2015 7:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0801-scott-disick-instagram-01Scott Disick got a harsh dose of reality Friday when he went solo to the wedding of a friend, and seemed to express regret over his breakup with Kourtney Kardashian.

Scott attended the wedding of J.J. Corsini in Santa Monica, and posted a pic of his seating card with the caption, 

"When u realize the grass isn't always greener"

It's pretty stunning and an enormous departure from a guy who seemed to revel in his newly-found freedom.  

It looks like he's made peace with Kourtney, at least to the extent they have some sort of temporary custody arrangement.

Bobbi Kristina Funeral

Brown Family Suspicious

Houstons Will Sneak Pic of Body

8/1/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0202-bobbi-kristina-instagram-6Bobbi Kristina’s funeral will be yet another family face-off -- the Browns are on high alert and worried the Houstons will sneak a photo of her dead body ... and sell it.

Sources close to the Browns tell TMZ ... they fear a repeat of what happened when Whitney Houston was laid to rest in 2012 ... when a photo of her body, in her casket, was snapped and ended up on the cover of a magazine. 

Since the Brown family was persona non grata at the funeral ... they believe someone from the Houston side was behind it.

Our sources say the Brown family plans to band together and stand guard ... and their eyes will be trained on the Houston family.

Pat Houston is managing the funeral, so it has all the makings of turning real ugly, real fast. 

Meek Mill

WWE Pissed Off

Over Undertaker Entrance Song on Diss Track

EXCLUSIVE

0801-meek-taker-wwe-tmz-getty-01Meek Mill can't get a break this week ... after getting trashed for his tepid Drake diss song, he's now in the crosshairs of of The Undertaker over the wrestler's famous ring entrance song.

Meek sampled The Taker's signature bells in the diss track, and the WWE is not amused.  A spokesperson tells TMZ, "WWE takes its intellectual property rights very seriously, and we're looking into the matter."

The timing is sure bad ... the WWE is in no mood for clowning, given the tragic death of Rowdy Roddy Piper.

'Vanderpump Rules' Jax Taylor

Blabs About Hawaiian Sunglasses Arrest

8/1/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jax Taylor from "Vanderpump Rules" should exercise his right to remain silent, because he's a little too loose lipped for his own good following his arrest in Hawaii.

Our photog spotted the reality star with co-star Kristen Doute, who tried to get him to shut up, to no avail. Jax suggests he did not steal from the sunglasses store last month, but the surveillance video seems to tell a very different story.

Jax was arrested for felony theft ... expensive shades.
