Houston Family

Bobbi Kristina Breathing On Her Own ...

Browns Were Right

4/21/2015 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0421-bobbi-kristina-instagram-02

The Houston family is now changing their tune, saying Bobbi Kristina is OFF life support, but they continue to maintain there's no real hope for recovery.

The Houston family now tells TMZ, Bobbi Kristina is breathing without the assistance of a ventilator. They say, "According to the doctors she's breathing on her own but the trach has to stay."

But the family still maintains Bobbi Kristina has "global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive."

It appears the Houston and Brown families have different ideas about how to handle the prospect of long term care ... something that is now a real possibility.

Nick Loeb

Sofia Should Not Deny Life

To Our 2 Daughters

4/21/2015 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421-nick-loeb-sofia-vergara

Nick Loeb says there are 2 unborn girls he wants to father ... and he's not asking the mother, Sofia Vergara, for anything other than cooperation in allowing them to be born. 

Loeb's lawyer says, "Nick is not seeking to impose any parental obligations on the egg donor, financial or otherwise, and believes that the sanctity of life, his interest in achieving parenthood, and his desire to bring his daughters to term outweighs any interest the egg donor may have in destroying the embryos."

As TMZ reported, Nick is suing Sofia, claiming she wants to destroy the embryos now that she's moved on. Sofia says she will not destroy the embryos, but as we reported she refuses to allow them to come to term. We're told Sofia does not want to stir up a hornet's nest with her right-to-life fan base.

Nick's lawyer goes on ... "I created these two female embryos with the purpose of taking them to term and not destruction, because I have always dreamed of being a father."

He says he wants no money from Sofia ... Nick is loaded. He adds he's willing to give her an opportunity to be involved in the children's lives.

And the lawyer ends with this ... "Where a man does want to become a father, and wants to impose no obligations on the other party, he should have that corresponding right."

Erin Andrews

Did She Just Take a Shot

... at Jarret Stoll?!

4/21/2015 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Erin Andrews may have sent a passive aggressive message to her NHL star boyfriend Monday night -- seemingly chiding him for his Vegas drug arrest ... and it all went down on "Dancing with the Stars."

Erin was interviewing Willow Shields after her wild performance -- and asked her if she ever busted out similar moves on Spring Break. 

When Willow gave her super boring answer -- "I just sit at home and watch movies all week" -- Andrews gave a very interesting response:

"I feel like some other people should learn from you."

Paying attention Jarret Stoll?

Partying with Kings Teammates

... During Vegas Drug Arrest

4/21/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0420_jarrett_stoll_la_gettyJarret Stoll had been raging in Vegas with several of his L.A. Kings teammates in the hours before the NHL star was busted for trying to bring a BUNCH of cocaine and molly to a pool party ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Multiple sources confirm ... the Vegas vacation was essentially an unofficial end-of-the-season celebration to unwind and party as a team.

As far as how many Kings were part of the festivities -- sources tell us there were more than a dozen people from the organization on hand ... many of whom continued to party in Vegas throughout the weekend even AFTER Stoll was arrested. 

We know Drew Doughty and Martin Jones were part of the Vegas crew -- but they were NOT arrested or accused of any wrongdoing whatsoever. In fact, the only person who got into any trouble was Stoll

We reached out to the players and the Kings organization -- but no one wanted to comment on this specific story.

Miley and Patrick

Adios, Amigo!

breaking news

0421-miley-cyrus-patrick-schwarzenegger-tmz-01

Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger have split ... the only issue is whether it's temporary or permanent.

Multiple reports are confirming the obvious ... after dating for five months, they're each off on their own again.

It looked like Miley had shaken off Patrick's partying in Cabo during Spring break from USC, but it was only temporary.

He was at Coachella alone and she's been doing her thing at various events over the last week or so.

It seems pretty amicable, but remember ... just a month ago they were out at The Palm restaurant with Maria Shriver and had even talked about getting hitched.

There's another possibility for the breakup ... Miley's appearance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony over the weekend.  Raise your hands if you agree.

Furred Lines

Going Stupid 4 New Puppy

EXCLUSIVE

0420-robin-thicke-april-puppy-tmz-instagram

He knows she wants it ... so Robin Thicke made damn sure he scooped up an adorable puppy for GF April Love Geary.

Sources close to the situation say April's been itching for a pooch since March, so Robin did what any good boyfriend would -- last week he popped over to Bark N' Bitches in L.A. -- a no-kill shelter -- and snagged the cutest one for his lady.

We're told he dropped about $350 for the little terrier mix, named Bincy -- and based on April's recent onslaught of mushy-gushy Instagrams ... we're guessing she's shown Robin plenty of appreciation.

Fun fact: Marvin Gaye did NOT have a dog named Bincy. Sorry, Gaye fam.

Bobby Brown

Visits Bobbi Kristina

Conflict Remains Over Condition

4/20/2015 4:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0420-bobby-brown-hospital-meeting-doctor-fameflynet-01A pensive Bobby Brown met with doctors Monday to discuss Bobbi Kristina's condition.

Bobby was outside the DeKalb Medical Center in Decatur, Georgia, days after he announced during a concert that Bobbi Kristina was off life support and somewhat responsive. Bobby Brown's rep tells TMZ Bobbi Kristina's condition has improved and doctors say she'll have "a long life," although the quality of life will not be known for years to come.  

As we reported, the Houston family says it's not true ... they say she's still on life support and her condition has not changed at all.

We also got this pic of Pat Houston visiting Bobbi Kristina.

Marilyn Manson

Antichrist Superstar

Returns to Roller Skating

4/21/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Marilyn Manson RollerskatingSo what did Marilyn Manson do this weekend ... drink the blood of a unicorn? Double date with a couple witches and a warlock? Nope, he just went roller skating in Oklahoma ... naturally.

The goth rocker showed up at Skateland in Tulsa on Friday night. Manson is in town filming a movie where he plays a hitman, and they were shooting at the rink. According to the manager, Manson's character wasn't in the scene, but he came along for the ride so he could get his skate on.

The manager says Manson rented a pair of skates, and revealed he used to speed skate when he was a kid. All told he roll bounced for about 2 hours and didn't fall once. Not bad for his first time in 20 years.

Manson's still got a thing for the wheel life, obviously -- he played a skate rink employee on a 2013 episode of "Eastbound & Down."

Neil deGrasse Tyson

The Force Is Not With Me

I Ride with Trekkies

4/21/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Nerd demigod and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson doesn't mess around when it comes to science or sci-fi ... which is why there's one clear winner for him in the 'Stars Wars' vs. 'Star Trek' debate.

Tyson was leaving 30 Rock when we asked him if he was excited about the recently released "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" trailer. 

He admits he's never been a big supporter of the Jedi due to scientific inaccuracies -- but says there is ONE thing correct about George Lucas' universe. Just one.  

Let the nerd battle begin!

Cissy Houston

Bobbi Kristina's Brain Damage ... 'Irreversible'

Remains Unresponsive

4/20/2015 5:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0420_Cissy-Houston_bobbi_kristina_getty_instagramBobbi Kristina is suffering from irreversible global brain damage and is completely unresponsive ... so says her grandmother Cissy Houston

Cissy tells TMZ, "Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me."

She squarely contradicts Bobby Brown, who claims Bobbi is off life support and somewhat responsive. 

Cissy tells us, "I have just returned from visiting my granddaughter Bobbi Kristina in the hospital and while she is no longer in a medically induced coma she has a tracheotomy and according to the doctors she has global and irreversible brain damage and remains unresponsive."

Bobbi Kristina's grandma has faint hope, telling us, "We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time. Keep us in your prayers."

It's unclear why the families are so divided.

Lil Wayne

Sparks Music Deal with Pot Biz ...

'Cause It's 4/20 and Stuff

4/20/2015 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Wayne Weed App

Lil Wayne may be the one stoner today who is actually productive -- he just dropped a new music vid on the holy day of pot, and in a brilliant biz move he did it with the help of a popular "weed finding" app.

Wayne teamed up with Weedmaps to release, "Hollyweezy," from his mixtape "Sorry for the Wait 2."

We're told Weezy is partnering up with the company -- which pinpoints nearby medical marijuana dispensaries -- because he is a longtime advocate for legalization and reform. Also couldn't hurt that the site will get a ton of traffic on 4/20 ... and therefore more eyes on his video.

Wayne appropriately dropped the vid at 2:20 PM. Just kidding, of course it debuted at 4:20 PM EST.

Now grab your bag of gummy bears and enjoy.

Damon Dash

Loses Custody to Rachel Roy

EXCLUSIVE

0420_Rachel-Roy_damon_dash-2
Damon Dash
 just lost custody of the daughters he shares with ex-wife Rachel Roy, and it's probably all news to him ... since he didn't even show up for the hearing. 

Roy just got sole legal and physical custody of 15-year-old Ava and 6-year-old Tallulah. Dash also wanted full custody.

The former couple each accused the other of being an unfit parent. He claimed she drove drunk with one of the girls, and threatened to cut him with a knife. She claimed he smokes weed around the kids. She said all the women and drugs were a bad influence on their daughters.

The judge clearly sided with Rachel, ruling Dash only gets supervised visitation.

Roy also got a three-year restraining order against Dash.
