Prince 911 Caller May Have Big Criminal Issues

45 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

504-prince-andrew-kornfeldThe man who called 911 in Prince's death could face criminal prosecution if he was expecting to get paid for helping the singer ... and it all comes down to the pills in his backpack.

The lawyer for Andrew Kornfeld -- whose dad runs a rehab facility in Marin County, California -- says his client is entitled to immunity from prosecution because he was acting as a Good Samaritan.  

The issue -- Andrew had a synthetic opiate in his backpack, and he's not a doctor. Our sources say investigators are keenly interested in knowing why Andrew brought the pills. They are often used to wean people off drugs like Percocet -- the opiate which fueled Prince's addiction.

Andrew's attorney points to a Minnesota law that protects people who might be committing drug crimes from being prosecuted if they call 911. The idea is to give people an incentive to help others in dire need without fear of prosecution.

Here's the problem. Under the law, the person who calls 911 does NOT get immunity if they receive or expect to receive compensation for picking up the phone and making the call. It's unclear if Andrew and his dad were going to get paid, but the recovery center charges for its services, so it's a good bet they were expecting compensation.

As for the drugs in the backpack ... even if Andrew's dad prescribed the drug for Prince, our DEA sources say it's illegal for anyone to take the drugs across state lines and deliver drugs in states where the doctor is not board certified.

'Crash' Director Paul Haggis Divorce Has Me Writing More Checks Than Movies

5/5/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

504-tear-paul-haggis-tmz-gettyOscar winner Paul Haggis finalized his divorce, but his now ex-wife will continue reaping the benefits of his success.  

The "Crash" director reached his divorce settlement with Deborah ... and according to the docs, he'll pay her $20k a month in spousal support. The exes have a 17-year-old son, and Paul will pay another $5k per month for child support, and foot the bill for the kid's schooling -- high school and college.

Additionally, the settlement calls for Deborah to get a hefty slice of Haggis' income -- 20% of anything he makes over $1.2 million per year. That's on top of the monthly $20k check.

Paul's walking away with one of their 2 NYC SoHo apartments and 3 Florida properties.  

Fred Durst Selling His Hollywood Hills Nook-ie

EXCLUSIVE

0502_fred_durst_house_launchLimp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is ditching the Hollywood Hills home he barely owned for a year.

Durst bought the 3 bedroom, 3 bath home in December 2014 for $1.5 million. Now, he's put it back on the market for $1.625 million, so at least moving costs will be covered if he makes a profit.

The home is in the famed Beachwood Canyon 'hood -- a celeb fave -- and the big draw is the outdoor courtyard with fireplace. Inside ... check out the wine cellar ... it could use some work though.

No word on where Durst is moving -- he's pretty good at keeping big secrets

Martin Shkreli Pissed About 50 Cent Bullying ... DONATES $10k!!

5/4/2016 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504-jackson-farrell-shkreli-tmz-instagram-twitter-01Plot twist: hated pharma exec Martin Shkreli actually has a few good bones in his body.

We've learned Shkreli donated $10,000 to Autism Speaks after contacting the family of Andrew Farrell, the autistic airport worker who 50 Cent brutally mocked on video.

TMZ broke the story ... Farrell's family attorney wants 50 to cough up $10k for the autism advocacy group. So far they've only received an apology.

We're told Shkreli felt an emotional connection to the story -- he has several close friends and a family member who are autistic. Shkreli tells us his companies are trying to develop new, desperately necessary, treatments for autism.

Farrell's family attorney says Shkreli offered to donate the money directly -- but instead they opted to start a GoFundMe campaign. Shkreli will seed it with his $10k, and he's inviting the public to add onto the amount.

This won't help Shkreli in federal court -- where he's still facing securities fraud charges -- but his karma just got a boost.

Johnny Manziel turned himself in to authorities in Texas moments ago -- and was booked for misdemeanor assault in his domestic violence case ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The ex-NFL star gave a smirk during his mug shot. 

He was released on $1,500 bond -- and is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning in Dallas. 

Manziel is accused of beating up his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, back in January. She filed a restraining order against him claiming she was in fear for her life. She also claimed Manziel ruptured her eardrum. 

If convicted on the assault charge, Manziel faces up to a year in jail.

Police tell us Manziel wasn't in the station very long, and was polite and cooperative. 

Story developing ...

Prince DEA Investigating Drugs Front and Center

5/4/2016 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

502-prince-getty-03The Federal Drug Enforcement Administration is now involved in the death investigation of Prince, and our law enforcement sources say drugs are the focal point of the criminal probe.

Our sources say the DEA and the Minnesota Attorney General are looking into the various prescriptions that were written for Prince, and the focus is opiates. Prince had a life-threatening Percocet addiction and authorities believe opiates will likely be either the sole or at least a significant factor in his death.

Our sources say the investigation is sweeping ... doctors and pharmacies involved in prescribing and filling meds for Prince are targeted, but possible enablers are also in the crosshairs.

Our sources now say the toxicology report may still be weeks away, although it was initially set to be released 2 weeks after the autopsy.  

We know at least one doctor was a friend of the singer, but we're told the investigation is much broader. 

Donald Trump Can't Get What He Wants ... Rolling Stones Join No-Play List

Breaking News

Mick Jagger doesn't give a rat's ass how many delegates Donald Trump's secured, he and the Rolling Stones are putting the kibosh on their music getting played at Trump rallies.

The Stones fired off a cease and desist letter to the campaign requesting they "cease all use immediately" ... according to a statement from the band's rep.

Trump used their hit "Start Me Up" as his intro music during several Indiana campaign stops this week -- and clearly word got back to the Stones' legal team. The Donald's also used "You Can't Always Get What You Want" in the past.

Candidate Trump's heard this tune before -- Neil Young, Aerosmith, Adele and others have also asked Trump to delete their music from his playlists ... and he's always complied.

Alec Baldwin BALLISTIC in Bev Hills ... SHUT UP!!!

5/4/2016 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Alec Baldwin exploded in anger Tuesday, getting in a photographer's face and berating him for shooting Baldwin's wife.

Baldwin and Hilaria were in Bev Hills when he unleashed on the photog with ear-shattering volume, ordering him to "shut up."

It's unclear what preceded Baldwin's tirade, but he tells the photog in no uncertain terms his wife is out of bounds for the paparazzi ... interesting for sure, because Hilaria is a prolific Instagram user who chronicles her life on the app. She's also a correspondent for "Extra."

It's even more interesting ... Baldwin wrote an essay where he said he was moving from New York to California because he can't stand the paparazzi presence in the Big Apple. He wrote in New York Magazine, "L.A. is a place where you live behind a gate, you get in a car, your interaction with the public is minimal."

The incident occurred in a very public part of town ... Bedford Drive in Beverly Hills.

We reached out to Baldwin's rep ... so far no word back.
