Exclusive Details

0706_tom_cruise_4th_july_party_photos_launchTom Cruise went hardcore all-American in a Nashville bar -- 'cause nothing says happy birthday, America ... like partying with cute Southern babes in cowboy hats! 

Cruise hit a rooftop party at Acme Feed & Seed, and even sprung for the $200 cover to party with the common folk and take in the biggest fireworks show in the country.

We're told Cruise rolled through with minimal security and happily posed for pics with tons of fans. As the night went on, Tommy boy was spotted chatting up some chicks, dancing to country music, drinking champagne and even dipped into the taco and slider station.

It's unclear why he was in town, but everyone got a kick out of seeing him ... even the guy who shook his hand in the bathroom. 

Clear violation of guy code, but hey ... it was Tom freakin' Cruise.

Jenelle Evans

Sorry I'm Not Sorry

About Explosive Video With My Dog

7/6/2015 12:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jenelle Evans never thought the Internet would explode over her dog playing with fireworks in a gnarly 4th of July video -- because, as she puts it ... they do it on "America's Funniest Home Videos."

Jenelle tells TMZ that it was all a misunderstanding after letting her dog, Jax, play fetch with a lit firework during her party in Myrtle Beach. On a video she posted of the stunt ... it sounds like she tells Jax to fetch the firework -- and that's what got people pissed. 

Jenelle deleted her post off social media once the backlash started. She tells us she thought the vid was innocent, and adds ...  she saw the same thing on 'AFV.' 

Don't get it twisted though -- she says she's NOT sorry about letting Jax play with explosives, but she's sorry people were offended.

She insists the dog is fine, and she'd pull the same stunt next July.

0706-casper-jlo-splashJennifer Lopez had to keep a watchful eye on her kids ... sorry ... her boyfriend while he tooled around town on his cool new gadget. 

Casper Smart and JLo were hanging in the Hamptons, and while his dog and Jennifer hoofed it -- Casper was cruising on one of those motorized boards.

At least he carried the shopping bags on the way home.

Despite the adorable Boxer pooch and Casper's toy -- the real star in this pic is still JLo's legs. God bless America, indeed.

Shocking new footage shows Florida State quarterback De'Andre Johnson PUNCHING a woman in the face HARD at a bar in Tallahassee ... after she punched him in the face first. 

It all went down at the Yianni's nightclub on June 24th ... after the woman felt Johnson was aggressively trying to push his way past her to get to the bar.

In the video, released by the State Attorney's office, you can see the woman -- a 21-year-old FSU student -- raises her fist to warn Johnson and he grabs her hand. She then punches him in the face with her left fist. 

That's when 19-year-old Johnson responds by throwing a crushing right cross to her face ... you can see the woman bleeding all over the bar. 

The woman says she suffered a black eye, swelling all over her face and a cut on her nose. 

Johnson has been suspended from the FSU team indefinitely. He has also been charged with misdemeanor battery. The case is ongoing.

EXCLUSIVE

0706-bobbi-kristina-getty-01Bobby Brown's family can no longer visit Bobbi Kristina in hospice -- they've been banned because security guards believe one of them took the deathbed photo that's being shopped around.

Sources close to the situation tell us the security team at the hospice informed Whitney Houston's family there was evidence incriminating a Brown family member as the person who snapped the pic.

We're told Bobbi Kristina's estate -- run by her legal guardians -- made the decision to ban the Browns. We're also told although they know the culprit ... they're not naming names at this point.

TMZ broke the story -- someone is selling the pic to the highest bidder, and has already contacted several websites and magazines. So far, it has not been published.

We're told the ban does not affect Bobby. On Sunday, he told us he was committed to finding the person responsible for the pic.

Kourtney Kardashian has finally pulled the plug on her relationship with Scott Disick ... kicking her baby daddy to the curb after his partying habits got out of control ... sources tell TMZ. 

Our well-placed sources -- and they're solid -- tell us Scott hasn't come home to the family house in Calabasas in over a month and Kourtney lost her patience. 

As one source put it, "His partying lately has made her make this tough decision."

We're told Kourtney is also frustrated with Scott's friends -- and believes they're enabling his substance abuse. 

Scott and Kourtney have been together since 2006. They have 3 kids together. 

It's well-documented that Kourtney and Scott have been rocky over the years -- but we're told, "but now, after 3 kids, it's gotten old and she has to do what's best for the kids."

As for Scott, he was last spotted in Monte Carlo -- getting touchy-feely with celebrity stylist Chloe Bartoli. 

Sources tell us Scott knew the relationship had ended -- because he was telling people in Monte Carlo that he was "newly single."

EXCLUSIVE

Mick Jagger's moves are a force NOT to be reckoned with ... says sexy roots rocker Grace Potter, who opened for the Rolling Stones last month in both Minneapolis and Dallas.

Potter got to duet with Mick on “Gimme Shelter," but she tells our photog it came with a disclaimer courtesy of guitarist Keith Richards' daughter Theodora: Don't out swagger the Jagger.

Potter's got moves of her own -- she's known to kick up a heel and scale a piano in one of her token short dresses -- but check out her review of 71-year-old Mick ... sounds like she's no match for him, or so she says.

Kim Kardashian

Threatens to Sue

Over Intrusive Naked Photo

EXCLUSIVE

0702_kim_kardashian_tmz
Kim Kardashian
 is enraged that a photo agency is hawking pictures it claims to show her lying naked at her pool, and she's threatened to haul their asses into court.

Kim's lawyer, Marty Singer, fired off a letter to X17, an L.A. paparazzi agency, claiming the company is hawking pics that were taken in a helicopter hovering over Kim's Hidden Hills home. Singer claims the photog broke the law by taking the pic in a chopper with a telephoto lens.

Singer says even worse ... X17 is lying when it claims Kim was naked. He says she was wearing a blue bikini and when she saw the helicopter she grabbed a towel to cover up.  

Singer warned X17 if they sell the pics, they will face big damages for invasion of privacy.

Singer may have gotten through to the agency ... they took the pics off the website.

breaking news

0706-burt-shavitz-getty-01Burt Shavitz -- the co-founder of the natural cosmetics company Burt's Bees, which bore his name and likeness -- died Sunday in Maine. He was 80. 

A spokeswoman for the company said Shavtiz died of respiratory complication, surrounded by family and friends. The company's website says Shavitz "has left for greener fields and wilder woods."

Shavitz and Roxanne Quimby founded the company in 1984. They made $20,000 in their first year and the company was eventually bought by Clorox in 2007 ... for $925 million.

Shavitz left the company in the '90s after he claims he was forced out for having an affair with an employee. He says he received 37 acres of land in Maine and an undisclosed sum of money as part of his exit deal.

Shia LaBeouf

Good to See Ya, Mom ...

Please Do My Laundry

0706-shia-labeouf-mom-splashShia LaBeouf made it out of South Dakota -- after a couple wild weeks -- but he's still wearing the same damn clothes he was sporting in the Badlands. 

LaBeouf was out in L.A. ... taking a Sunday afternoon stroll with his mother, Shayna Saide -- and something about him looked familiar. The last time we saw Shia was late last week dancing around a hotel parking lot in SD with his film crew, and he clearly LOVES that sleeveless black shirt.  

Question is -- does he love it enough to wash it every now and then?
