Kim Richards Dodges Jail Bullet

8/24/2016 1:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824-kim-richards-tmz-02Kim Richards narrowly avoided jail after blowing off her community service and AA meetings in her shoplifting case.

Kim's lawyers were in court Wednesday for a probation violation hearing ... this after she missed the deadline for completing 30 days of community service and 52 AA sessions.  

Her lawyers presented proof that Kim belatedly did most of her community service and is now up to date on AA meetings, so the judge cut her a break.

Kim stays on probation and everything must be completed by the next hearing in November.

Kim was convicted of shoplifting for stealing $600 worth of stuff from Target.

Slash Cuts Bev Hills Pad by $1.5 Mil

8/24/2016 2:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

slash_home_photos_launch3Slash is hoping a fresh coat of paint and a substantially lower asking price will finally attract a buyer for his Beverly Hills mansion. 

The GNR guitarist just relisted his Mulholland Estates home for $9.5 million ... about $1.5 million off the original listing for the 7 bedroom, 9 bath home. Slash put it on the market more than a year ago, after he and his wife of 13 years, Perla, filed for divorce.

The 11k sq. foot home has been stripped of most of its rock 'n' roll qualities, but a stripper pole remains ... key selling point, no doubt. Looks like the backyard skate ramp's also been replaced by a beach volleyball court.

Slash and Perla bought the mansion in 2009 for $7.3 million.

Nick Diaz Jumped in Las Vegas ... HUGE Brawl Breaks Out

8/24/2016 1:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824-nick-diaz-tmz-01Nick Diaz ended up in the middle of a huge brawl while partying at Hyde nightclub in Vegas early Wednesday morning ... TMZ Sports has learned.

A rep for the club tells us the UFC fighter went to a bathroom outside the club around 2:30 AM, and accidentally stumbled into another customer ... who started talking smack. We're told Nick apologized and said he didn't want any trouble, but 3 other men then joined the first guy and jumped Nick.

Nick tells us, "I didn't start it. They didn't know who I was."

He tried to defend himself, and got hit hard in the head -- and then the fight spilled out of the bathroom, and out onto the Bellagio's casino floor.

The melee was insane -- the club's rep says the attackers were swinging chairs and brawling with club and casino staffers. They were eventually removed by security.

Nick told the Bellagio he didn't want to press charges, and told us, "They got the worst of it."

Blac Chyna I'm Kool with Kylie

8/24/2016 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824_blac_chyna_kylie_jenner_tmzBlac Chyna and Kylie Jenner have buried the hatchet and there's no animosity over Kylie playing stepmom to Chyna and Tyga's son King ... so claims Rob's fiancee.

Sources close to Blac Chyna tell us she actually enjoyed the pics of Kylie and King at a mini-golf course.

We're told Chyna's good with the entire Kardashian brood ... a brand she's personally growing -- she's weeks away from giving birth.

She's also not stupid and knows Kylie will become her sister-in-law and if she starts picking fights with her, Kris will side with her daughter, which will cause Chyna financial and other problems.

The Kardashians are also on board ... they've invited Chyna to family events ... most recently the latest DASH store opening and Kris' mom's birthday.

Chyna knows which battles not to pick.

Faith Evans Judge OKs Bad Boy Reunion Single Mamas Gotta Eat!!!

8/24/2016 11:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0824-faith-evans-bad-boy-tmzFaith Evans just scored one for single moms everywhere -- a judge shot down a promoter's request to block her from performing at the Bad Boy Family Reunion concert in Atlanta. 

The judge ultimately sided with Faith cause she's a single mom of 3 who makes a living performing ... and it wouldn't be fair to stop her from performing with Diddy on Sept. 8 in Atlanta. On the other hand, Jeremy Hill -- the promoter who sued her -- had already replaced her for his concert ... according to legal docs. 

TMZ broke the story ... Hill sued Faith when she bailed on his Sept. 10 concert at Wolf Creek Amphitheater. He's seeking damages in excess of $100k.

It's interesting ... according to the docs, the judge acknowledged Faith breached her contract with Hill, whose goodwill and credibility was on the line. The judge also noted that since replacing Faith -- with the R&B band Next -- the show hasn't been selling.  

Plus ... since Hill announced Faith was no longer performing at his concert, he said he's received around 200 requests for refunds. 

Still ... the judge felt Faith had more to lose. 

Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa Sued Your Concert Cracked My Spine

8/24/2016 9:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0824-snoop-dogg-khalifa-tmz-01Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa are being sued by 17 concertgoers who were injured when a front row railing collapsed at their New Jersey concert earlier this month.

You'll recall ... at least 40 people were hurt -- several had to be hospitalized -- when the crowd barrier gave out without warning. One of the victims says he suffered a fractured spine.

According to the suit, Snoop and Wiz yelled, "Everybody in the mother******* grass bring your ass down here" ... right before the collapse. The plaintiffs say that call to action caused the stampede which lead to the collapse.

Three of the plaintiffs were employees at the venue, BB&T Pavilion. Live Nation, which owns the venue, is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit. They say the company had made shoddy repairs on the railing in the last year.

After the collapse, people fell roughly 10 feet onto the concrete below, and the show ended abruptly.

Diddy Cheers for Drake Beef Dead & Buried

8/24/2016 10:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0824-diddy-drake-concert-twitterDiddy showed up on Drake's turf ... sitting in the crowd at one of his concerts, and proving the two have truly waved the white flag in their feud.

Diddy had one of the best seats in the house at Drake and Future's Summer 16 stop in Greensboro, NC. He didn't get up onstage, but just being in the audience is a huge step. 

Drizzy and Diddy famously threw down in 2014 outside LIV nightclub in Miami -- the climax of their beef over the track, "0 to 100/ The Catch Up." As we reported, they eventually settled the matter man-to-man ... over the phone. 

Drake's been playing the track in his sets, so Diddy was probably treated to the live version.

Tamar Braxton 911 Call My Husband Bit Me ... Right in the Ritz!

8/24/2016 8:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tamar Braxton's domestic dispute with her husband got so down and dirty, he bit into her hand ... according to a friend who called police.

TMZ obtained the 911 call made Sunday from the Ritz-Carlton in Atlanta -- the caller immediately tells the operator about the alleged bite, and Vincent Herbert fleeing the scene.

As you can imagine ... the operator's concerned an ambulance will be needed.

Neither Tamar nor Vincent is saying what really went down. We got them at LAX the next day, and they made it seem like all's right in their world.

Ryan Lochte Phelps Got 6-Month Suspension ... And He Could Have Killed Someone

8/24/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-four-us-swimmers-ryan-lochte-rio-gunnar-bentz-jack-conger-jimmy-feigen-GETTY-02Ryan Lochte is going to get punished by the USOC ... but sources connected with the 4 swimmers don't think it's fair for the organization to annihilate them to appease those who are out for blood.

Lochte's lawyer, Jeff Ostrow, tells TMZ he has faith in the USOC and that the organization will punish Lochte in a manner that matches his conduct during the drunken Brazilian escapade. Ostrow would not say more.

Michael Phelps' punishment for his 2 DUIs is unquestionably relevant. The reality is ... but for the grace of God, Phelps could have killed an innocent person while driving drunk. After his second DUI in 2014, the USOC imposed a 6-month suspension.

The org. did not strip Phelps of his medals or keep him from competing in the 2016 Olympics.

As for Lochte and crew, they were drunk as well, but none got behind the wheel. Our sources say worst-case scenario ... Lochte damaged a sign outside a gas station bathroom and peed on the grass.

As for the "lies" -- our sources are adamant ... he and the other swimmers were taken out of a cab at gunpoint and ordered to turn over hundreds of dollars ... classic robbery. The sources acknowledge the swimmers were deceptive by implying they were pulled over in a moving cab.

Bottom line ... sources connected with the 4 swimmers say a 6-month suspension would be harsh given Phelps' punishment, but could still be justified. Anything more, they say, is just vengeance to appease the media and the public.
