Prince 'Friendly' Doctor Prescribed Powerful Drugs

44 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42716-prince-gettyPrince was able to get his supply of prescription drugs from more than one doctor ... and at least one of them was a "personal friend" of Prince ... this according to members of the singer's family.

TMZ broke the story ... Prince developed an addiction to Percocet sometime before his hip surgery in 2010, and almost died from an overdose 6 days before his death.

What's significant ... Percocet is a controlled substance, and a single doctor who prescribes an excessive number of pills will be flagged by state and federal authorities. As a result, as in Michael Jackson's case, someone addicted to a drug who needs more than the medically necessary amount will doctor shop.

As we reported, Prince went to a local Walgreens pharmacy 4 times in the week he died to fill prescriptions. Our sources say authorities are on the hunt for the various doctors who prescribed and pharmacies that filled Prince's prescriptions. We're told authorities are also interested in possible aliases the singer might have used. 

As for at least one of the doctors being friends with Prince, it may have shades of Michael Jackson. In Jackson's case, a number of doctors crossed the line by prescribing drugs that were not medically necessary, in order to ingratiate themselves with the singer. 

Verne Troyer Call Me Baby

EXCLUSIVE

0429_verne_troyer_vaping_stroller_launchVerne Troyer is one bad baby -- at least that's what some angry parents assumed when he disguised himself as a vaping toddler out for a stroll.

Verne and his "dad" -- YouTube star Roman Atwood -- seemed to piss off and fool plenty of passersby Thursday as they strolled up and down Hollywood Boulevard.

We'd like to believe this is just how Verne normally gets around town -- but we're told the weird moment was being filmed for one of Atwood's YouTube prank videos.

Michael Strahan Blindsided by Ripa Taking Divorce Cheap Shot

4/29/2016 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

The gloves are off ... and Michael Strahan got that message loud and clear when Kelly Ripa dropped an unscripted jab at him over divorce, TMZ has learned. 

Sources connected to production tell us Ripa's intro to a segment about divorced couples was a total shock to Strahan. If you missed it -- Kelly innocently turned to her co-host and said, "So, you've gotten divorced ..."

We're told the look of shock on his face was 100% authentic.

Of course, both Kelly and Michael knew they were doing the segment, but we're told he had NO IDEA she was going to raise his divorce as part of it. If it looks like a cheap shot, that's exactly how Michael and others on set took it ... according to our sources.

Strahan played it off on the air this time, but these last 2 weeks -- before he jumps to 'GMA' full-time -- are gonna get interesting.

Kim Richards Jail Bound For Shoplifting Case

EXCLUSIVE

429-kim-richards-tmzupdate_graphic_red_bar

9:40 AM PST -- The bench warrant has now been signed by a judge. Bail was set at $26,000.update_grey_gray_barKim Richards is staring down an arrest warrant in her shoplifting case because she's ditching her AA classes ... as far as the court is concerned, anyway.

TMZ has learned the judge is about to issue a warrant for the 'RHOBH' star. Our sources say Kim never turned in documentation to prove she's attended the number of AA classes ordered in her plea deal.

Kim's been struggling in all her cases. As we've reported ... the judge in her Beverly Hills arrest already scolded her for not doing community labor, and shot down her foot injury excuse.

She's supposed to do a total of 52 AA classes and 30 days community labor for the shoplifting arrest -- but if she doesn't present some proof, STAT ... she'll be doing jail time.

Selena Gomez French Montana Digs My Old Crib

EXCLUSIVE

0429_french_montana_selena_Gomez_house_launchFrench Montana just scored with Selena Gomez ... he bought her Calabasas home for $3.3 million ... $150k under the listing price.

Selena, repped by the Altman Brothers, put the Mediterranean pad on the market last year after stalkers kept showing up.

The 5 bedroom, 6 bath home is in the same neighborhood where French's ex Khloe Kardashian lives, which makes this an interesting move on his part.

Check out the pics -- this place screams summer party. Good timing, French!

Lenny Kravitz & Naomi Campbell Date Night ... With a Side of Bird Poop

4/29/2016 7:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Naomi Campbell and Lenny Kravitz were the hottest couple in Hollywood Thursday night ... and the chaos in this video proves it.

The duo was connected at the hip as they left The Nice Guy, where Gigi Hadid had her birthday party -- and earlier in the night they were all hugged up at Naomi's event for her new book. Btw, the photo book retails for $1,750!

But you gotta see this video because ... if they're not REALLY a couple, they're doing a REALLY good job acting like it. Also, how cool is Lenny? Who else could get Naomi to ride shotgun in an old jeep blanketed in massive amounts of bird crap?

Only Lenny.

Johnny Manziel Buys 300 Shots on Draft Night ... 'This S*** Wicked'

4/29/2016 6:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Johnny Manziel drowned his NFL draft night sorrows in Fireball Thursday night ... ordering up 300 SHOTS at an Ohio bar for a few hundred of his not so closest friends ... and TMZ Sports has the video.

Two years after he was selected in the 1st round ... the unemployed QB hit up Dahlia Bar and Lounge in Columbus right after the 1st round of the '16 draft wrapped up.

You can see in the video Johnny was in a generous mood ... buying 300 shots of whiskey and some Miller Lites for the crowd. 

We're told Johnny spent the night hanging out in the DJ booth with Justin Bieber's tour DJ ... JB had a concert in Columbus on Thursday, but was a no-show at the bar.

Earlier in the day, Manziel was reportedly hangin' at ANOTHER Columbus bar ... watching the draft while sporting a white headband -- the same headband he was rocking later that night. 

FYI, the Browns drafted a WR last night ... if only they had a QB to throw him the ball.

Taylor Swift Run-In with John Mayer ... Y'know What Happens Next

4/29/2016 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You can already hear it ... Taylor Swift's #1 song about bumping into your ex at a BFF's birthday, that won't have anything to do with seeing John Mayer Thursday night.

The exes both showed up at Gigi Hadid's huge 21st birthday bash at The Nice Guy. We don't know for sure if they spoke, but we know the place is small enough that they had to at least be aware of each other's presence.

Luckily for them there were a ton of celebs inside to create a buffer.

Still ... the song will be awesome.

Prince Sister Storms Out of Family Meeting Money Fight Looms

4/28/2016 3:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-prince-tyka-getty-ap-01It didn't take long ... Prince's sister Tyka went ballistic in the first meeting with the singer's siblings and marched out of the room ... and we're told it's already becoming a money squabble.

Sources with first-hand knowledge tell TMZ, the meeting was held Thursday in Minnesota. Tyka, Prince's younger sister, was present, along with brothers Alfred and Omarr

We're told the meeting was tense, and 2 hours in Alfred expressed his displeasure that he was the only sibling excluded from Prince's memorial service, which Tyka planned. We're told an argument erupted and she stormed out of the room.

We're also told the brothers have a clear impression from the meeting ... Tyka thinks she's entitled to more than them when it comes time to divide Prince's assets. As we reported, under Minnesota law all 6 siblings -- irrespective of whether they're half or full -- share equally, but apparently Tyka doesn't see it that way.

Our sources say after Tyka left, a rep from the bank that was appointed as the administrator took Alfred on a tour of Prince's home and the area where he died "so he could properly grieve."
