8:25 AM PT -- Gordon just tweeted a screen grab of a text he sent Bobby saying, "Man to man I love your daughter ...  I don't know why you won't let me see her ... Your daughter is going to hate you when she wakes up.  It's not like you know her anyways.  What's her favorite color?  What's her favorite smell, movies, food.  You don't know. I forgive you she won't."

Nick Gordon is refusing to talk to cops about the circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina ending up face down in a bathtub, and he's refusing to tell Bobby Brown as well.

Bobby Brown's lawyer, Chris Brown, says Gordon has refused to cooperate by coming clean with the events that led to the medical emergency and there's no reason to talk to him anymore about giving him a hospital visit.

Brown says, "It appears that Mr. Gordon did not want his understanding of the facts to be subject to the truthful examination of various experts or Bobby Brown himself."

Brown continues, "Mr. Gordon has every right to remain silent and not share his version of events with Bobby Brown," adding, "Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe."

TMZ broke the story ... Nick became the target of a criminal investigation after authorities noticed injuries to Bobbi Kristina's body when she was taken to the hospital.

Calvin Harris

Lawyer Threatens Suit

Over Nude Pics and Video

2/22/2015 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0221-calvin-harris-tmz-01Calvin Harris has lawyered up over nude pics of him that are being shopped in the porn and media worlds ... and anyone who dares to post them will see Calvin in court ... fully clothed.

Harris -- who is a wildly popular DJ and the new face/body for Armani underwear -- apparently had a penchant for taking nude pics and videos and sending them to several women. He not only bares all, but proudly mugs for the camera.

We passed on the pics but we can say, he's ripped and, well, Big Sean's got nothing on him.

A&E to Toy Maker

Go Duck Yourself

2/22/2015 12:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Duck Dynasty Toys SuesA company that made millions of dollars off of "Duck Dynasty" kites and motion-activated toy ducks may have to shell out some serious bills to a network that feels betrayed.

A&E has sued The Wish Factory -- which sells the tchotchkes -- claiming the company made nearly $3 million in the last 3 months of 2013 and they were supposed to give A&E a cut of the profits, but the network claims it got stiffed.

So A&E wants a hair over $320K, but even worse, good luck if The Wish Factory wants to keep selling all things mallard.

They'll never eat duck confit in this town again.

Kurt Busch

Too Much to Lose in GF Assault Case

Judge Thinks He'd Lie in Court

2/20/2015 2:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0220_kurt-busch_patricia-driscoll_gettyupdate_graphic_red_bar2:55 PM PT -- NASCAR just suspended Busch indefinitely. update_grey_gray_barNASCAR star Kurt Busch sounded like he rehearsed all his answers, and may even have lied under oath when he testified in his domestic violence case ... according to the judge.

As we reported ... Busch's ex-gf Patricia Driscoll got a restraining order last week, and in new docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, the judge explains why he ruled against Busch.

According to the docs ... Busch came off like he had practiced reciting his version of what happened during the alleged incident last September ... in a very specific order. Anytime he was asked to break from that "memorized" order of events ... he got flustered.

The judge said "an honest witness" should be remember the truth in any sequence.

Further, the judge feels Busch "has so much to lose" -- his NASCAR career and endorsements -- he has "powerful incentive" to lie on the stand.

Busch's attorney is appealing the restraining order -- but clearly the judge has trust issues when it comes to his side of the story.  

Miranda Cosgrove

Creepiest Fan on Earth ...

Thrown In Jail

EXCLUSIVE

Miranda Cosgrove Stalker Jail

Nickelodeon star Miranda Cosgrove wasn't safe -- even in the Happiest Place on Earth -- from an alleged stalker who was caught creeping around her at Disneyland before getting arrested.  

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Joshua Stockton was hauled to jail Wednesday after he allegedly followed Cosgrove to the theme park and violated a court order to stay 100 yds. away.

We're told Cosgrove notified the cops after she spotted Stockton tailing her. LAPD busted him later for felony stalking ... and for violating the restraining order.

TMZ broke the story ... Cosgrove slapped Stockton with a restraining order back in October after he repeatedly followed her around and sent her disturbing suicide threats and graphic images of a slit wrist.

Stockton is being held on $150,000 bond.

Porn Star Tory Lane

Goes Nuts on Delta

2/20/2015 10:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0220-tory-lane-brazzers-01A top porn star went nuts on a Delta flight and ended up in jail after attacking the flight crew and a cop.

Tory Lane -- who ironically starred in an XXX flick called "When Porn Stars Attack" -- was flying from ATL to LAX Wednesday night when she apparently got rip-roaring drunk, argumentative and then physical. She was allegedly screaming and kicking people on the plane, to the point where she had to be physically restrained during the last 45 minutes of the flight.

Once on the ground, cops boarded the plane and she allegedly assaulted one of them. The story was covered Thursday, but we just found out the passenger was a multiple AVN award winner.

Lane never made it to the baggage claim. She went directly to the hospital and then jail, where she was booked for battery on a police officer and drunk in public. She's since been released.

Afroman Assault Victim

That Knockout Is Gonna Cost Him ...

Preps for Lawsuit

2/20/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

021715_afroman_facebook_launchThe woman Afromansucker punched during a concert this week is getting ready to strike back ... in court. 

TMZ has learned the woman -- a 21-year-old named Haley -- hired an attorney ... who tells us Haley suffered multiple injuries to her neck, jaw and back after the attack. 

Her lawyer Tim Holleman also thinks she may have suffered a mild concussion ... since she doesn't remember the punch. Even though our video shows Haley wandering on stage -- Holleman says the venue should bear some responsibility since security did nothing to remove her. Especially since Afroman has a violent history with fans.  

Holleman adds ... he's not buying Afroman's claim he didn't know Haley was a woman ... because Afroman saw her when she got on stage -- something the video seems to prove.

Haley's attorney says she's already racked up medical bills, and she'll be seeking reimbursement ... if they go forward with a lawsuit.

WWE Ringside Doctor

Sues CM Punk for $1 Million

... Over Staph Infection Claims

2/20/2015 6:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0220-cm-punk-tmz-01

Two former WWE superstars have been hit with a huge lawsuit from the WWE ringside doctor -- who claims the duo defamed him on a podcast ... when they trashed him over the way he treated a growth on CM Punk's back. 

The man behind the lawsuit is Dr. Chris Amann -- who claims Punk and Colt Cabana defamed him on Colt's "Art of Wrestling" podcast back in November ... when Punk spoke out for the first time about his departure from WWE. 

0220-chris-amann-colt-twitter

During the podcast, Punk repeatedly tore into Amann -- essentially saying he was a crappy doctor.

Amann says the two also claimed he misdiagnosed a growth on Punk's back -- a growth that Punk says later turned into a full blown staph infection. 

But Amann says it's all BS -- claiming the statements are false and defamatory ... and now he wants the wrestlers to pony up more than $1 million in damages to his reputation ... plus punitive damages. 

Colt and Punk had no comment about the lawsuit.

Vanilla Ice Burglary Arrest

I Lied To Cops, But ...

I Thought I Was Just Trash Picking

2/19/2015 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Vanilla Ice Burglary Arrest

Vanilla Ice spun a big fat lie -- to cops and his workers -- when he got busted for stealing a bunch of items from a Florida home.  

According to the arrest report ... Ice lied to cops about owning the vacant Lake Worth, FL house where his "Vanilla Ice Project" TV crew allegedly made off with the pilfered items -- but he claims he thought some of the stuff was fair game because it was on the curb.

But that doesn't jibe with his foreman who says Ice also instructed the production crew to go inside the house ... and target specific items like a pool heater, valued at $3000. The foreman says Ice also lied to him about owning the place.

Cops have since recovered most of the items, including:

-- An iron table with glass top valued at $450

-- Patio chairs valued at $1,000

-- A sofa valued at $1,000

-- Two bicycles valued at $400

-- Large mirror valued at $500 

If convicted of home burglary and grand theft, Ice is potentially looking at prison time.

Warren Sapp's Escort

Upscale Sex Scam Artist

... NYPD Says

2/19/2015 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0219_Quying-Boyd_mug_wmOne of the escorts in the Warren Sapp hooker bust was arrested by the NYPD last year -- after cops say she ran an upscale sex scam ... and fleeced rich dudes out of tons of cash and jewelry. 

The female (alleged) mastermind is Quying Boyd -- a 34-year-old escort who cops say ran her operation out of Manhattan in 2014. 

According to police, Boyd would lure rich guys to their hotel rooms under the guise they were gonna bang -- only to swipe everything from money to credit cards to watches when they weren't looking. 

Cops say Boyd jacked at least 3 dudes ... and scored more than $50,000 in cash and prizes (including a $40k Roger DuBuis watch). 

She was eventually arrested in both 2013 and 2014 and charged with grand larceny ... but later released. 

Which brings us to Arizona ... where she wound up in a room with Sapp -- though she claims she did NOT perform any sexual acts on the guy ... and has not been accused of stealing anything.

As for the allegations in NY, unclear what happened with her case -- but we're looking into it. 

Bruce Jenner

Video Shows Bruce Squarely to Blame

In 'Violent' Crash

EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner
was squarely at fault in the fatal car crash ... so claim people familiar with the MTA video of the crash. 

Law enforcement would not comment on the video, however, others familiar with it tell TMZ it shows the drivers of the other 3 vehicles in the crash did nothing wrong. We're told the video shows the Lexus and the Prius moving at a very slow rate of speed, though it's unclear whether they are accelerating or decelerating. They were in the back of a line of cars stopped for a red light.

As we reported, Bruce told cops at the scene the Lexus driver slammed on her brakes without warning, making it impossible for him to react in time to avoid the crash. We're told the video actually shows the Lexus barely moving -- she did not slam on her brakes -- and Bruce is clearly inattentive, holding his cigarette with one hand and not aware of the traffic in front of him. By the time he realizes he's in peril, he slams on the brakes but it's too late. 

We're told the video shows Bruce hit the Lexus "violently" ... rocketing it into the Hummer, killing the Lexus driver. Our sources say the video shows Bruce was clearly traveling at a significant speed given the magnitude of the crash, although cops believe he was not speeding.

Bruce then continued on and hit the Prius, and we're told that collision occurred at almost the exact time the Lexus hit the Hummer, which is why witnesses say they only heard 2 crashes.

Although the video seems to show Bruce and Bruce alone caused the crash, it was still an accident and some of our law enforcement sources think it's unlikely he'll be charged with vehicular manslaughter because the offense is following too closely, something everyone has done.

Suge Knight

Shooting Injuries Lead to Medical Emergency

Robbery Case Delayed Again

2/19/2015 9:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0218_suge_knight_IN-COURT-TMZSuge Knight's body keeps rejecting court dates -- he was just rushed from a courthouse to a hospital ... and we've learned the problem is a stomach issue related to last summer's nightclub shooting.

Suge never made it into the courtroom for his robbery case. The judge announced that he'd been transferred from jail to the courthouse, but suddenly fell ill ... and had to be taken by ambulance to a hospital.

Suge's attorney David Kenner tells TMZ ... the rap mogul's been dealing with bleeding in the stomach. Kenner says he met with Suge Wednesday, and he was complaining about the stomach pain. He says there have been multiple ongoing heath issues all related to Suge getting shot six times at 1Oak Nightclub in August.

The medical emergency led to the 2nd delay in proceedings for the robbery case he and Katt Williams are facing. They're accused of taking a camera from a paparazzo in Beverly Hills.

The judge said Katt will be in court later Thursday to face the robbery charges.
