Prince Traveled Miles For Prescription Pill Addiction

4/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

429-prince-pharmacies-4Prince passed up at least 8 pharmacies close to Paisley Park on his way to pick up prescription pills hours before his death ... and it could all have been to hide a paper trail of multiple prescriptions.

As TMZ reported ... Prince visited Walgreens chain drugstores 4 times in the week leading up to his death. However, the location the singer visited the night before his death was 6 miles from home. An odd choice considering there were several other pharmacies located just over a mile from his house.

Although it's unclear exactly why Prince traveled so far ... family members tell TMZ they were worried the singer was using multiple doctors and aliases. Most pharmacies will throw up a red flag if a patient visits too often ... so by visiting multiple locations in his area, the singer could have flown under the radar.

In fact, the Walgreens Prince was photographed at the night before his death is the same one that's 6 miles away in Minnetonka.

Chyna Mixed Pill Bottles Throw Wrench In Death Investigation

EXCLUSIVE

0429-chyna-tmz-02Detectives in Chyna's death are dealing with a curve ball -- the ex WWE superstar had a knack for mixing up prescription pills, and it's making it hard to figure out what she took before she died.  

Sources close to the investigation tell TMZ detectives discovered several full prescription pill bottles near Chyna's body ... many of which contained multiple meds. We're told there were at least 4 different types of pills, plus she also mixed vitamins in the bottles.

As TMZ reported, Chyna's manager worried she had a problem with Ambien and Valium, but it appears she was taking more than just that.

Our sources say the mixing means investigators will have to wait until the toxicology report is complete to figure out what she ingested.

N.W.A. 'Express Yourself' Banned at H.O.F. ... Says Funk Legend

4/30/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429-charles-wright-express-yourself-NWA-GETTY-01N.W.A. insulted funk music pioneer Charles Wright by offering him a measly $600 to sample his hit song "Express Yourself" for their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ... according to Wright.

Wright's rep Kimirhochelle Porter tells TMZ the singer felt totally disrespected by the lowball offer, since he usually gets around $600k for samples of his '70s hit. We're told Wright was also pissed because N.W.A. didn't invite him to the ceremony.

Wright -- frontman of the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band -- hasn't been inducted to the Hall himself. We're told he feels snubbed, and thinks N.W.A. should share the spotlight since his music played a big role in their success.

Porter says they're still trying to strike a deal, but tick-tock -- the ceremony airs Saturday night on HBO.

Lionel Richie Hello, Would You Like To Buy My Makeup?

EXCLUSIVE

0429-lionel-richie-makeup-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-01Lionel Richie wants you to stay pretty all night long -- and that appears to be the hook for the cosmetic line he wants to launch.

The singer launched his new business endeavor last week when his company filed a trademark for "Hello By Lionel Richie."

The copyright covers just about everything beauty related ... cosmetics, face masks, body glitter, bath beads, hair bows, nail polish, etc.

And there's a separate trademark for candles and candle accessories.

Hello ... way better than Brickhouse cosmetics. 

Starbucks Sued Again Easy On The Ice!! And Pay Us $5 Million

4/30/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428_starbucks_compositeStarbucks is shorting cold drink lovers by loading up on ice cubes, and one thirsty Illinois customer's so pissed about it ... she's filed a lawsuit.

The issue, according to docs ... is not getting the advertised amount of beverage. For example, a venti is supposed to be 24 ounces, but the suit says more often you get as little as 14 because "large pieces of ice take up more space."

It's hardly rocket science, but the slighted customer is seeking damages in excess of $5 million.

Starbucks says the lawsuit is absurd because ... "Our customers understand and expect that ice is an essential component of any 'iced' beverage." It says it will gladly remake any beverage for an unsatisfied customer.

Starbucks was also sued last month for hot beverages being grossly underfilled.

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.

Bey's peeps aren't saying yet why the May 5 gig's been canceled, but she's still playing tonight in Tampa, and next week in Atlanta and Raleigh, NC.

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.
