Exclusive Details

3/12/18 -- As of Sunday evening, Gordon has officially been released on bail.

11:37 AM PT -- According to the arrest report, obtained by TMZ, Gordon told cops his girlfriend refused to leave his residence after throwing a bottle at him and ripping his shirt. He claims she attacked him for no reason, and that she was "crazy." 

But according to Gordon's GF, per police, she picked up Gordon from a bar and that while driving back he allegedly struck her in the right side of her face several times. She also says in the report that he pulled her hair and told her he should make her crash her car. Once home, she claims they got into another verbal altercation.  

The arresting officer says he saw visible marks on the GF, and placed Gordon under arrest even though the woman refused to press charges.  Nick Gordon, who has been under the microscope for years in the death of Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina, has been arrested for domestic violence.

Gordon was arrested by cops in Seminole, Florida for an incident referred to as "battery-touch or strike." It is listed as a domestic violence case. He posted a $500 bond, but has not been released as of yet.

As TMZ reported, Gordon was under scrutiny in connection with Bobbi Kristina's death in 2015.  There were allegations of domestic violence in the house just before she was found dead in a bathtub.

The investigation has never been closed. Gordon lost a wrongful death suit and is on the hook for $36 million to Bobbi Kristina's estate.

Gordon was also arrested in June, 2017 for domestic violence involving a new girlfriend, but the woman stopped cooperating and the charges were dropped

Heather Locklear Told Cops ... My Boyfriend Choked and Tried to Kill Me

3/9/2018 9:57 AM PST

Heather Locklear's sister told cops the night Heather was arrested she and her boyfriend were arguing ... and the boyfriend tried to choke and kill her.

TMZ has obtained the search warrant cops got days after Heather was arrested for felony domestic violence. We were told cops were looking for a gun, but it turns out they were on the hunt for other items, including Rx pills.

According to a Ventura County Sheriff's deputy, when cops arrived the boyfriend, Christopher Heisser, was standing on the side of the bed leaning over Heather and holding her wrists while she was on the bed.

Cops said they observed Heisser bleeding from the bridge of his nose and redness on his chest. He told deputies Heather attacked and repeatedly struck him -- and he defended himself. He said she bit his face as she acted "crazy, angry and wild."

She told cops the fight started after he lied to her -- she did not elaborate on the lie -- and she threw a can of Red Bull at him. She told cops Heisser choked her to the point she couldn't breathe, but also claimed she had no marks on her neck.

She then became belligerent with the cops, telling them, "Get out of my f****** house," charged at them, grabbed one on the arm and later kicked him in the shin. 

Cops say they eventually grabbed her and cuffed her on the ground. But, officers say she was still so belligerent, they had to put a hobble on her to prevent her from kicking them.

Cops got her outside, pinned her against her car and she screamed, "You f****** deserve your kids to die! You f****** deserve it! And when you find yourself in that position, think of me!"

She went on ... "I hope no one f****** burns your entire department down, your f******* police department ..." She then said what triggered the search warrant ... "Get the f*** off my property. Don't ever come on it. All of you are not allowed ... I will shoot you if you come on my property and take that as a threat and f****** put another count against me."

Heather's daughter, Ava, was present when cops were there and said Heather had been drinking. Heisser was arrested hours afterward for DUI.

During the investigation cops discovered she had a .38 Smith & Wesson revolver registered in her name.

When they went to her home with the search warrant, they were looking for the gun, but also ammunition, holsters, paraphernalia related to firearms, prescription bottles, diaries, clothing, mail and various other items.

The search warrant notes Heather had a history of drug and other alcohol-related incidents, including a call in 2012 where she was reported to be suicidal.

Cops did not find a weapon.

As we reported, Heather is now in a medical treatment facility getting help.

Accused Oscar Thief Pleads Not Guilty

3/7/2018 4:46 PM PST
Breaking News

The man accused of stealing Frances McDormand's Oscar is looking way rougher around the edges than he did on Oscar night -- he made his first court appearance Wednesday, pleading not guilty.

Terry Bryant went from tux to jumpsuit for his arraignment on a charge of felony grand theft. As we reported, Bryant was arrested for swiping McDormand's award at the Governors Ball.

Bryant and his attorney, Daniel Brookman, might have an uphill battle in this case. He not only posted his own video kissing Oscar Sunday night, but was also caught leaving the ballroom with the statuette in hand as he posed for cameras.  

Frances said she didn't want to press charges, but she has no say in the matter. The Academy is technically the victim, and they've asked for the case to move forward.

Bryant was released without bail after the arraignment, even though prosecutors said he has a repeated burglary history. He's due back in court later this month. Fair to say, his spiritual adviser's got a lot of praying to do.

Oscar Theft Case I'm Praying Terry Through This Mess ... Says Suspect's Rabbi

3/7/2018 1:32 PM PST

The man accused of stealing Frances McDormand's Oscar has quite the support system -- including his rabbi, who says the arrest is more about society than a guy allegedly making off with someone's trophy.

Terry Bryant's arraignment was postponed Wednesday morning, but his attorney, Daniel Brookman, held a news conference outside court, where -- no offense, counselor -- rabbi Naomi Levy stole the show.

Levy told reporters Bryant's "story" served as a commentary on our society and its "obsession with its 15 minutes of fame." Hard to figure what the hell she meant ... especially considering the new video showing Bryant brandishing Frances' Oscar Sunday night, as he exited the Governors Ball!

Bryant's attorney said his client will enter a not guilty plea once he gets in front of the judge -- which we're now hearing should happen late Wednesday or Thursday. 

Farrah Abraham Joyriders, Take the Wheel Why Don't Ya ... Here's the Keys, On Me!

3/7/2018 12:50 AM PST

Farrah Abraham was apparently asleep at the wheel this weekend -- 'cause her car got jacked after she left the keys inside.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... someone made off with a Hyundai Saturday that Farrah had rented. We're told she accidentally left her car keys in the vehicle, which she'd parked in a garage at a private residence in Bev Hills. Sure enough, it was boosted.

Unclear if the keys were in the ignition ... but we imagine it was a fairly easy getaway, regardless.

Luckily, this story's got a happy ending. Sources tell us cops spotted the car Monday night and ran the plates only to discover it was Farrah's stolen Hyundai. They pulled it over and arrested 3 men who were cruising in it. All three were booked for grand theft auto.

Farrah tells us two men were caught on camera stealing her rental while her real car was in the shop. She says some stuff was taken, but she's just happy she and her daughter are safe.

Wu-Tang Clan's U-God Shkreli's Blocking World From Hearing Cher On Our Album!!!

3/6/2018 2:57 PM PST

Do you believe in Cher collaborating with Redman and the Wu-Tang Clan?!? You should because U-God says it happened, but the feds gotta step in if the public's ever going to hear it.

We got U-God out in NYC Tuesday and asked him about Martin Shkreli ... you know, the Pharma Bro who dropped $2 mil to buy Wu-Tang's top secret "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" album in 2015. Well, feds have ordered Shkreli to hand over the album if he can't cover the $7.4 million he owes in restitution.

He told us the record's packed with surprises -- like the Cher collab -- and he'd love to see it go on sale to the public, instead of just one person. U-God also hinted at some internal Wu beef about finances.

Bottom line ... Cher ain't nuthin' to f**k wit!

Stevie J To Get Prison Time For Being a Deadbeat Dad

3/5/2018 2:23 PM PST

Stevie J wouldn't put up in his child support case ... so he's getting locked up.

The U.S. Attorney Southern District of NY, tells TMZ ... the 'Love & Hip Hop' star will have to turn himself in to authorities April 10 for failure to pay child support. Stevie owes more than $1.3 MILLION in back child support. These cases are usually handled in state court, but the amount owed, the length of time he was in arrears, and the fact that the people involved are in different states all make it a federal case.

The judge also skewered Stevie for ID'ing his probation officer's name on social media.

TMZ broke the story ... Stevie pled guilty for failure to pay child support back in February 2017. He accepted full responsibility and had been ordered to fork over $1,304,835.86. He was also placed on probation for 3 years ... unless he paid off his tab sooner than that.

At the time, federal prosecutors wanted Stevie to do hard time. They finally got their wish.

NFL's Branden Albert Got Tased By Cop, Fought Back In Jewelry Store Rumble

3/2/2018 7:03 AM PST

NFL Pro Bowler Branden Albert is so tough -- he pulled out taser prongs AFTER he got shocked and tackled a police officer in a jewelry store melee ... this according to police docs obtained by TMZ Sports.

Yeah ... this story is crazy!!!

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Albert was arrested for assault in Georgia on Wednesday. Now, we've got the police report and it describes a very violent situation.

Cops say Albert and his crew hit up Icebox Jewelry around 4:15 PM to check out some merchandise -- but Albert kept trying to access a part of the shop where customers are not allowed. 

The security guard -- an off-duty Atlanta Police Dept. officer -- says the store owner confronted Albert and told him to leave the area but the NFL star flipped out and "punched a jewelry cabinet which left a very large hole."

The officer approached Albert -- but the 6'4", 315 pounder went nuclear ... cussing and saying he would "kill" the owner. 

That's when the cop says Albert pushed him and tried to leave. The officer drew his taser and deployed it ... knocking Albert to the ground.

But Albert simply PULLED THE PRONGS OUT and got up! The officer chased him but Albert stopped, turned around and TACKLED THE COP!

Eventually, Albert stopped fighting and congratulated the cop on "a good tussle." The cop arrested him anyway. He was booked into jail for damage to property and obstruction of law enforcement. 

The cop says he suffered minor injuries in the incident -- but nothing serious.

Albert is still in jail at the time of this post.
