Prince Cops Release Video of Death Scene ... Pics Inside His Vault

4/19/2018 2:51 PM PDT
Breaking News

Cops just released video shot inside Prince's home the day they found him dead.

The Carver County Sheriff's Dept. is releasing all the records from its investigation on the heels of the County prosecutor announcing there will be no criminal charges in Prince's death. Those records include the videos and photos shot all over Paisley Park on April 21, 2016.

As we've reported, Prince was found lying on his back in front of an elevator door in the home. We've chosen not to show the image of his body.

The rest of the video gives you the point of view cops had as they entered the room where he was found. Dozens of Prince's records are on the walls in an extremely bright room. 

There also photos inside his legendary vault showing recordings, large sums of cash and recording equipment stacked on shelves.

One pic shows a white powdery substance spilled out on a table with a bent spoon placed next to it. Looks ominous, however the spoon and cherry appear to be a replica of a Minnesota art piece.

There were 2 patches on Prince's body -- one on his leg, and one on his arm ... and we're told they were placed there by emergency responders when they attempted to revive him.

The files also include a video of Prince from April 20 ... as he walked into the office of Dr. Michael Schulenberg. As we reported, prosecutors say Dr. Schulenberg had written a Percocet prescription for Prince, but they don't believe it played a role in his death.

Donald Trump Says Putin Bragged About Russian Hookers ... Claims Comey

Breaking News

Donald Trump said Vladimir Putin boasted to him about the quality of hookers in his country ... this according to one of James Comey's memos.

Several media outlets have obtained the memos by the ex-FBI Director, and one of them is already adding spice to the Mueller investigation into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 election ... or at least rumors involving Trump and hookers.

In the memo, Comey claims the U.S. Prez said Russia's Prez told him ... "We have some of the most beautiful hookers in the world."

It's unclear why Putin would tell Trump that, or why Trump would tell Comey that, but one thing is clear ... the GOP House members' request of Comey's memos is keeping the spotlight on the Russia probe.

Sinead O'Connor told police Prince was a violent man who flew into drug-fueled rages against women, including herself.

Eleven days after Prince overdosed, Sinead was interviewed over the phone by Carver County Sheriff's investigators ... who have just released audio of that conversation, and she says Prince commonly "used hard drugs."

Sinead said, "I know this because I spent time with the man." She recalls it wasn't a pleasant experience, and claimed Prince "had been violent to a number of women in his life" ... some of whom she claims had to be hospitalized.

She also claimed Prince told her the real reason he didn't want to release his famous "Black Album" was because he'd taken drugs, and had a vision of God ... who told him to shelve the project. 

Ahman Green Pleads Guilty to Disorderly Conduct In Child Abuse Case

4/19/2018 2:52 PM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-NFL running back Ahman Green has plead guilty to disorderly conduct in his child abuse case ... stemming from a June 2017 incident in which he allegedly punched his 15-year-old daughter in the face. 

As we previously reported, the 41-year-old former Green Bay Packers star was arrested in Wisconsin and initially charged with felony child abuse and disorderly conduct. 

Green had acknowledged getting physical with his child (admitting he pushed her) but said he was only disciplining her for refusing to do the dishes -- and did not cross the line into child abuse. 

Still, prosecutors pushed forward with the case ... and ultimately struck a plea deal with Green in which he agreed to enter an Alford Plea to two lesser misdemeanor charges (disorderly conduct and criminal damages). 

FYI, an Alford Plea is a form of a guilty plea in which the accused denies wrongdoing but admits there is enough evidence to get a conviction. 

In exchange prosecutors recommended NO jail time. Instead, he'll likely get 18 months probation, fines, anger management and will have to write a letter of apology to his daughter. 

Green appeared in court Thursday for the hearing. 

Green has issued a statement insisting his "name has been cleared of the terrible crime of child abuse."

"I have never and would never abuse anyone, including my daughter whom I love, dearly."

"While I have no doubt in my mind that I would have been successful in front of a jury of my peers in defending myself against all charges, even the two minor charges to which I have entered a no-contest plea, I decided as a father that I did not want to put my daughter, and the rest of my family, through the emotional trauma of a trial."

The son of wrestling legend The British Bulldog (real name Davey Boy Smith) is a wanted man -- after throwing a cup of coffee straight in the face of WWE Hall of Famer Jake "The Snake" Roberts.

New Orleans PD is investigating an incident that occurred the day before WrestleMania 34 -- when Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Roberts had an altercation during an autograph-signing sesh on Canal St.

Cops say Roberts, 62, reported no major injuries.

But get this -- Smith spoke openly about the incident the same day it happened ... telling WrestleZone he confronted The Snake because he previously dissed his dead father.

The 32-year-old wrestler says he challenged Jake to a fistfight ... and threw the hot cup of Joe after The Snake told him to, "F**k off."

Stay tuned ...

Prince's Death No Criminal Charges Investigators Can't Find Fentanyl Source

4/19/2018 9:16 AM PDT
Breaking News

Prince likely had NO idea he was even taking the fentanyl that ended up killing him, according to prosecutors who have found no one to criminally charge for his death.

Carver County Attorney Mark Metz said Prince had taken counterfeit Vicodin that was laced with fentanyl. He said they could not find sufficient evidence of who supplied the counterfeit pills, and as a result ... there will be no criminal charges in his death. 

As we reported, a toxicology report showed Prince had "exceedingly high" levels of the opioid in his system when he died -- even for a chronic pain patient.

Metz added it was likely Prince had also taken one of the counterfeit Vicodin when he overdosed on a private jet the week before he died. TMZ broke the story ... Prince made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois, where emergency responders gave him 2 shots of Narcan to save his life.

Metz said Prince had been prescribed Percocet by Dr. Michael Schulenberg days before he overdosed, but says it played no role in his death. TMZ obtained a photo of Prince pacing outside a Walgreens the day before he died, waiting for a prescription to be filled.

Schulenberg had prescribed the Percocet to Prince's bodyguard, Kirk Johnson, as a cover for Prince. The federal government went after Schulenberg for that violation, and he just reached a settlement ... agreeing to pay a $30k fine. 

Prince died at 57 at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota on April 21, 2016.

"He's a Ball -- he's gonna be a great dad," LaVar said ... noting that little girls are WAY harder to raise than little boys.

Lonzo said he hopes his kid will love him as much as he loves his own parents.

Ever jump clear over YOUR OWN GIRLFRIEND for fun?

Guessing the answer is, "hell no" -- unless you're Simone Biles' BF, Stacey Ervin Jr

Here's Stacey -- a former Team USA gymnast -- and Simone having an average day at the office ... seeing if Ervin can box jump the entire height of his boo -- who he's been IG official with since last summer. 

Dude clears it with ease -- but says Biles was "only a little impressed." (WHAT!)

Yeah, she's only 4'9'' ... but that's some damn impressive ups.

Breaking News

Johnny Manziel has made it clear he wants to play for the New England Patriots -- and on Wednesday night, he sent the team a reminder ... via his sweatshirt. 

Remember ... Manziel previously told TMZ Sports he'd love to play for Bill Belichick, "I'll go to New England in a heartbeat."

Then, the Patriots reportedly met with 25-year-old Manziel at the Texas A&M Pro Day at end of March.

Next came the Spring League where Johnny put on a solid performance which left some NFL execs raving about his potential.

Fast-forward to Wednesday night ... when Johnny rocked the Patriots hoodie while his wife, Bre Tiesi, snapchatted away.

Now, with rumblings Tom Brady might retire (yeah right) the Patriots could be in the market for a QB ... and Manziel wants to make sure he's top of mind.

That ... or maybe he just likes the sweatshirt.

Curt Schilling Gets Massive Jesus Tattoo ... and It's Kinda Cool

4/19/2018 6:34 AM PDT
Breaking News

Challenge: Forget how you feel about Curt Schilling and judge this post purely on art. Good? 

The ex-MLB star-turned-political firebrand got a brand new tattoo -- Jesus on the cross -- and he's essentially sharing an arm with JC. 

The tat is inspired by Mark 15:33 -- "At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon."

But, the artist designed the tattoo to make it look like Jesus' left arm becomes one with Curt's arm -- and the illusion is actually pretty cool. 

Question -- does Curt have a better chance of getting into heaven or Cooperstown?

LeBron James wants people to "get off [Allie LaForce's] back" -- saying she did NOT blindside him on air with a question about the death of Gregg Popovich's wife.

LaForce was catching hell on social media Wednesday night from people who thought it was WAY out of line to ask LeBron about Erin Popovich in the moments after the Cavs playoff game.

But, LeBron went to bat for the reporter -- making a video explaining the entire situation and essentially saying LaForce couldn't have been more professional or sensitive to the situation.   

"A lot of people feel that I was blindsided. That is absolutely false."

"Allie LaForce told me that she was gonna ask the question and if it was OK. And once I started talking about it, once I was on air ... that was just my emotions coming straight from my heart."

"So get off her back, man -- she's very professional and she does a great job."

The Spurs are scheduled to take on the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of their playoff series Thursday night in San Antonio. Kevin Durant was told the sad news at practice and was at a loss for words.

Erin was 67.

RIP
