Justin Bieber Accidentally Slams Truck Into Photog Cops, Ambulance On Scene

7/26/2017 10:51 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Justin Bieber accidentally ran over a photographer as he left a church service in Beverly Hills ... and the loud impact was captured on camera.

Justin was leaving the Saban Theater, where he'd been worshipping at a City Church event. He climbed into his monster pickup truck as photogs scrambled around the vehicle, and when he gunned it to pull away ... hit the man. It's pretty clear in the video ... Justin's front right side tire hits, or rolls over, the paparazzo.

Justin did not flee the scene and, in fact, stopped as soon as other photogs pointed out what had happened. Bieber stayed right by the man's side for roughly 8 to 10 minutes until paramedics and police arrived.

Justin spoke to police before he was allowed to leave the scene -- police tell TMZ he was not cited -- getting a ride from one friend, while another drove his truck. 

Police say the photog suffered non life threatening injuries to his lower body.

EXCLUSIVE

William Shatner had a buck of a scare when his horse got spooked, and tossed him from the cart it was pulling.  

Shatner was participating in a horse and buggy competition Wednesday at the Mercer County Fair & Horse Show in Harrodsburg, KY ... where he was entered on the amateur level.

As he turns a corner on the track, the horse suddenly reared up for seemingly no reason. The cart, called a sulky, Shatner was in flipped and he ate it. Sources at the event tell us Capt. Kirk and his steed were both uninjured. Bill didn't need medical attention, and even with the spill, took 1st place!

As a young star fleet Capt. once said ... hang on tight and survive, and then win.

Quincy Jones Wins Cut of MJ's Hits ... Nearly $10 Million!!

7/26/2017 5:39 PM PDT
Breaking News

8:10 PM PT -- MJ's estate says the judgement is "too much" and "unfair to Michael Jackson's heirs."

Attorneys Howard Weitzman and Zia Modabber tell TMZ, "While the jury denied Quincy Jones $21 million –- or more than two-thirds of what he demanded -- we still believe that giving him millions of dollars that he has no right to receive under his contracts is wrong."

"This would reinterpret the legal language in, and effectively rewrite, contracts that Mr. Jones lived under for more than three decades, admitted he never read, referred to as 'contract, montract,' and told the jurors he didn't 'give a damn' about."

"Any amount above and beyond what is called for in his contracts is too much and unfair to Michael’s heirs. Although Mr. Jones is portraying this as a victory for artists’ rights, the real artist is Michael Jackson and it is his money Mr. Jones is seeking."Quincy Jones suddenly has 9.4 million reasons to go off the wall ... after scoring a victory over MJJ Productions and Sony.

The jury handed down its thriller of a decision Wednesday in Quincy's legal battle for unpaid royalties on Michael Jackson's three mega hit albums. Quincy argued accountants for the defendants screwed him out of dough he was owed for producing those records. 

He was asking for around $30 million, so he didn't get exactly what he wanted -- but still not a bad payday.

You can say this about Q -- he really didn't stop until he got enough.

Kim Goldman My Ex Trashes Ron, Makes Violent Threats

7/26/2017 4:50 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Goldman, sister of Ron Goldman -- who was killed by O.J. Simpson -- is so terrified of her ex-husband's threats and attacks on Ron's name ... she's demanding court protection.

Kim divorced Michael Hahn in 2007, but says he's emotionally abused her ever since. In court docs, obtained by TMZ, Goldman says Hahn has sent her a series of threatening emails over the years -- even invoking her late brother, Ron, and father Fred.

According to Kim, a message he sent just last week reads, "You dress my son like your dead brother, changed his name to Ron Goldman. Your f***ed up and need help. F*** all of you."

Kim says Hahn has never played a significant role in their 13-year-old son's life.

She says another text was even more violent -- "Your not a victim. Your a piece of shit that will burn in hell next to your scum bag brother who got what he deserved." 

Kim wants an order for Hahn to stay 100 yards away from her, and also wants the court to force him into anger management.

Rapper Z-RO Busted for Allegedly Beating Ex-GF for Hours

7/26/2017 3:20 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rapper Z-RO was arrested after allegedly beating his ex-gf in an assault that lasted over 2 hours ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the ex, rapper Just Brittany, reported the incident Monday to Harris County cops, but said it actually happened back in April. It's unclear why she waited 3 months to report it, but we're told Brittany played cops recorded audio of the alleged incident.

Sources say cops wrote up a report and immediately sent it to the Harris County District Attorney's Office, which determined it was enough to arrest the Houston icon Wednesday and charge him with felony aggravated assault. He's being held without bond.

Just last year, the couple recorded the now interestingly titled track, "Mama Should've Told Me."

Marcia Clark O.J.'s Paid His Debt ... Well, One of 'Em!

7/26/2017 2:57 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Marcia Clark says O.J. Simpson has served his time ... once, anyway, out of 3 huge court cases -- but she's not exactly welcoming him back to society.

We got the famed former L.A. Deputy District Attorney -- who prosecuted O.J. in the double murder trial -- and asked what she thought of him getting paroled for the 2008 armed robbery conviction.

Marcia bit her tongue, hard, at first -- but eventually opened up about whether she thinks Simpson is square with the law after 9 years in prison.

Let's just say she takes things on a case by case basis.

EXCLUSIVE

Reps in the gym can make you healthy, but so can good food and champagne, according to Diddy's ex, Kim Porter, who says he's the picture of health.

Diddy suffered some dad bod shaming when pics of him on a yacht surfaced last week, but his ex is flipping a switch saying the haters got the images all twisted -- they just don't recognize the good life when they see it.

Kim, who has 3 kids with Diddy, also says this particular dad's outgrown the need for a 6-pack to impress chicks. He's got $820 mil, after all.

Young Buck D.A. Has It In For Me ... I'd Hurt A Door, Never A Woman!

7/26/2017 2:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Young Buck is trying to clear his name when it comes to the vandalism and domestic violence charges that led him to surrender to cops in Nashville.

The G-Unit rapper turned himself in last week after an arrest warrant was issued stemming from a 2016 altercation with his girlfriend where he allegedly kicked in the door at his home.

We spoke to Young Buck a week after he sprung himself on a $10k bond, and while he admits he might have gotten violent with the door, he says -- as a father of 4 girls -- he'd never put his hands on a woman. His real beef is with the District Attorney.

Buck also says he and the woman are still together.

Justin Bieber Church Is My Great Escape from Fans

7/26/2017 1:46 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber's religious lifestyle is the complete opposite of his life on the road ... and that's why he chose it over the Purpose tour ... TMZ has learned.

Sources at Hillsong Church tell us Justin worships in total peace, and at least feels he's treated like a regular person ... not a superstar while he's there. We're told he enjoys not being the center of attention and the feeling of community. As one source put it ... "Everyone's there to help everyone."

We're told taking photos or video is frowned upon, and that's a big deal for Justin. Remember, Bieber's long complained that fans snapping pics makes him "feel like a zoo animal."

As we first reported ... other church sources say JB canceled Purpose after he "rededicated his life to Christ" -- that's the "unforeseen circumstance" in the official cancellation statement.

Publicly, Justin has said he just needs a break ... but we're told it's much deeper than that.

Alison Sweeney Restraining Order Extended to 3 Years Against Internet Troll

7/26/2017 12:14 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former 'Biggest Loser' host Alison Sweeney just got permanent protection against a guy who she says has been harassing her nonstop ... for the next 3 years, at least.

A judge extended Alison's temporary restraining order against Jon Christopher LuVisi Wednesday after she came to court earlier this month claiming he'd been trolling her on social media endlessly for 9 months.

We broke the story ... LuVisi allegedly tried extorting Alison for thousands of dollars by saying he had photos of her genitals and would send them to her husband unless she paid up. She says he also started making threats after she blocked his multiple accounts.

LuVisi didn't show up to court Wednesday, nor did any of his lawyers. Didn't matter though -- a judge granted the 3-year extension under the original terms ... 1,000 ft away from Alison and her fam. 

Snoop Dogg Off the Hook in Cracked Spine Suit

7/26/2017 11:42 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Snoop Dogg is all about the Cali life ... and a judge agreed -- tossing out a lawsuit against him because the other side sued him in the wrong state.

You'll recall Snoop -- along with Wiz Khalifa and Live Nation -- was sued by 17 concertgoers claiming Snoop and Wiz incited a stampede after imploring fans to "bring your ass down here." The front row railing at the New Jersey concert collapsed as fans fell 10 feet onto a concrete floor.

At least 40 people were hurt ... including a fan who says he suffered a fractured spine. They sued.

Problem is ... Snoop's side argued he lives in Cali -- not Pennsylvania where the suit was filed -- so he has no business being caught up in this legal mess. The judge said fo shizzle -- clearing Snoop from the suit.

Wiz and Live Nation are still fighting the suit.

EXCLUSIVE

"American Idol" is getting closer to assembling a full squad -- the show's zeroing in on finalists to join Katy Perry on the judges' panel.

'Idol' sources tell TMZ ... Lionel Richie's still a favorite to fill one of the 2 remaining seats, and singer Charlie Puth has emerged as a front-runner for the other one. We're told show execs will meet with ABC this week to finalize their choices and make offers.

There could be a country curveball, though ... our sources say Luke Bryan is in the mix because he impressed producers in early discussions. Also, if things don't work out with 2 of those 3 ... we're told Keith Urban is an 'Idol' vet who could slide in as an alternate.

Katy and Ryan are anxiously waiting to see who joins 'em.

Trans Ex-Navy SEAL Prez Trump Is On a Slippery Slope With Transgender Ban!!

7/26/2017 10:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Retired Navy SEAL Kristin Beck has 3 letters for President Trump's ban on transgender people serving in the U.S. military ... "WTF!"

Beck, a transgender woman and former SEAL Team Six soldier, told us Trump pinning the ban on money woes is complete BS ... and a lame excuse from the Commander in Chief.

More importantly ... she sees this as a major step backward for the country. In particular, she took Trump's use of the word "disruption" as a strong hint this could be the start of more discrimination in the military.

Bottom line for Beck -- transgender Americans have every right to serve their country. The documentary, "Lady Valor," showed how she served with great honor.
