Conrad Hilton Sued Vomit-Covered Head-On Car Wreck

8/22/2016 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804_conrad-hilton_tmzConrad Hilton smashed his daddy's Range Rover head-on into another woman -- just a few hours after he dodged jail time for another high-speed wreck ... according to a new lawsuit.

Kelly Auld says Paris Hilton's troubled little bro was driving erratically in the white Range and drifting into her lane. In the docs, she says he accelerated, and clipped another car before smashing into hers.

Auld says in the seconds before the crash, she saw Hilton looking dazed with BOTH hands above his head as he careened toward her. In the suit, she says witnesses saw Conrad throw a bong out his window, and he was covered in vomit when he got out of the SUV.

The vehicle was registered to Hilton & Hyland, Rick Hilton's real estate firm ... according to the suit.

She's done her research too -- Auld points out Conrad entered a court-ordered drug treatment program last year, and had been prohibited from driving.

And get this ... she says the accident happened May 19 -- the day after Conrad struck a plea deal for a 100 mph wreck near Palm Springs.

Shannen Doherty Scores Settlement in Cancer Lawsuit

8/22/2016 1:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822-ShannenDoherty-instagramShannen Doherty just landed a settlement in that huge $15 million lawsuit she filed against her ex-manager for allegedly screwing up her health insurance.

We broke the story ... Shannen sued her former management firm, claiming they mismanaged her insurance premiums and let her policy lapse at a critical time when doctors could've done an early detection of her breast cancer.

According to docs, both sides agreed to settle the matter late last week. The amount of money Shannen is getting is confidential. The battle was really heating up right before the settlement -- lawyers for her ex-manager tried to get Shannen to sit for round 2 of a deposition ... questioning how sick she really was from her cancer and treatments.

It's a moot point now.

Demi Lovato Sleigh Bells Sues Are Ya Listenin' Demi?

8/22/2016 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0820-demi-lovato-tmz-02Demi Lovato has been sued by the group Sleigh Bells for allegedly ripping off their critically acclaimed song, "Infinity Guitars."

Demi's song "Stars" -- released last year as a bonus track in her album "Confident" -- has "virtually identical content" to "Infinity Guitars" ... so claims the group. The lawsuit says, "The combination of the hand claps and bass drum, structured as 3 quarter beats and a rest ... is at least substantially similar in both works."

"Infinity Guitars," released in 2010, was a massive critically acclaimed hit, scoring in Rolling Stone as one of the best songs of the year.

Last November, producers said "We did not use any samples in Demi Lovato's song Stars. Demi was also not involved with the production. She only wrote top line."

Sleigh Bells wants some serious profits from Demi and the other defendants, and they want to yank her song from getting more play.

U.S. Swimmer Jimmy Feigen Charity Donation to Boost Brazil's Olympians

8/22/2016 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0820-James-Feigen-gettySwimmer Jimmy Feigen's nearly $11k deal to avoid a Rio jail could backfire against future Team USA Olympians.

TMZ has learned Feigen's $10,800 donation has been tagged to spruce up training facilities for the Reaction Institute in the Rio favela known as City of God. Specifically, we're told the money is going to help fix walls and prevent weather damage to judo equipment. 

That equipment is used to give children from the favelas judo training, and put them on the road to becoming Olympians -- who might one day whoop-up on American judo fighters. Brazil's judo gold medalist this year, Rafaela Silva, once trained at the Institute ... so it has a good track record. 

As we reported, Feigen struck a deal with prosecutors in Rio ... who agreed to let him off the hook, if he made the donation.

Folks at the Reaction Institute are pumped for the dough, and tell us they hope Jimmy will visit once the work is done -- but we're guessing he won't be back in Brazil anytime soon. 

MLB Star Edwin Encarnacion Sued for Battery ... STD Allegations

8/22/2016 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822_edwin-encarnacion_gettyToronto Blue Jays superstar Edwin Encarnacion has been sued by a woman who claims he knowingly gave her multiple STDs during a romantic weekend ... TMZ Sports has learned.

 The woman behind the lawsuit claims she's a 24-year-old family friend of the MLB star who first met him in 2013. 

In her lawsuit, the woman claims she hooked up with one of Edwin's teammates in 2015 -- but was tested in December 2015 at a Planned Parenthood and was told she was clean. 

The woman claims she later hooked up with Edwin during a trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic in February 2016 ... and had unprotected sex on at least 2 occasions. 

Problem is ... the woman claims she was in pain in the days after the hookup and thought she had Zika -- so she went to a doctor. 

She later learned it was NOT Zika -- but rather two STDs. 

The woman claims she contacted Edwin -- but he insisted he was clean and "suggested she may have picked up [the STDs] when they went 4-wheeling and she swam in the river."

The woman says Edwin later backed off his claims about being STD-free -- and then stopped contacting her altogether. The woman claims she now believes he knew he was carrying STDs all along.  

The woman is suing Edwin for battery, misrepresentation of the facts and more -- and is demanding more than $11.5 MILLION to make things right. 

We reached out to Edwin's agent -- who told us "no comment." 

Prince No Conrad Murray in His Death

8/22/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602-prince-getty-3Prince's deadly dose of the powerful painkiller Fentanyl was NOT prescribed by a doctor, which means it's a near impossibility anyone will ever be charged with his murder.

Law enforcement sources confirm investigators have not turned up a prescription for the Fentanyl. The Fentanyl pills found at Paisley Park were in a bottle labeled hydrocodone -- and it's now believed they were illegally obtained.

Our sources tell us whoever gave Prince the drug would face a 3rd degree murder charge under Minnesota law. However, without a prescription, we're told Prince's doctors would be in the clear ... so there'll be no Conrad Murray-esque trial.

Investigators would have to track down the source of the illicit Fentanyl -- it's reportedly an epidemic problem in Minnesota -- for anyone to stand trial for murder.

It's still possible a doctor could get nailed for over-prescribing other opioids. Remember, we broke the story ... Prince nearly OD'd on Percocet 6 days before his death at Paisley Park.

8/22/2016 8:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-chris-brown-tmz-01Chris Brown just scored a W in his legal battle with his pissed off neighbors -- who, for some reason, backed down and now the LAPD's dropped its disturbing the peace investigation.

Law enforcement sources tells us Chris won't face any charges for allegedly disturbing the peace back in May ... when he was accused of terrorizing the streets of his neighborhood on an ATV.

You'll recall ... there was even video of a joyride taken by one of his neighbors. We're told the one who ended up calling cops didn't want to cooperate, so LAPD decided to close the case.

You gotta wonder why the neighbors suddenly went soft. One of 'em was on "TMZ Live," and seemed determined to go the distance with Brown. Hmm ...

EXCLUSIVE

0818-whitney-cummings-tmz-gettyWhitney Cummings is livid at a neighbor who she claims went all Paul Bunyan in her backyard, and now cops are investigating. 

We're told Whitney walked in her backyard this week and was horrified to see a tree massacre, courtesy of her neighbor's gardener.

Seems the neighbor was frustrated that Whitney's wall of bark was blocking his view, and she says he ordered the landscaper to do a hatchet job on her property ... cutting the trees down to stumps.

Whitney called the cops, who came out and took a felony vandalism report ... she claims the damages total around $36k.  

Sources tells us the neighbor offered to pay Whitney something, but it's unclear how much.

We spoke with the neighbor, who had no comment. We also reached out to Whitney, but so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

0819-mischa-barton-TMZ-01Mischa Barton's gotta fork over a ton of cash to the screenwriter she left high and dry by blowing off his movie production to go parading all over Europe.

In legal docs obtained by TMZ ... a judge ordered Mischa to pay $200k, plus interest, to screenplay writer Daniel Lief for skipping town just as shooting was set to start for his movie, "Promoted." Mischa had scored the lead role. 

As we reported ... producers sued Mischa when they saw pics of her all over social media ... hangin' in Europe with a dude, instead of getting her ass to work. Daniel said the production delay -- he had to recast the lead -- cost more than $300k. 

We reached out to Mischa, but no word back yet.

EXCLUSIVE

0819-birdman-cash-money-tmzBirdman just got hit hard for stealing loot from some veteran songwriters ... hit hard as in millions of dollars. 

Lil Wayne and Cash Money sampled some obscure tracks for the songs, "You" and "Certified." Seems Cash Money shorted the songwriters -- ironically exactly what Wayne claims Birdman did to him in a separate, multi-million dollar lawsuit. 

Birdman and Cash Money now have to pay the piper ... to the tune of $3.3 mil.  

Mind you, Wayne wants $51 million in his lawsuit against Birdman. But the mogul isn't worried ... we're told he's about to sign a big deal with Apple, so he'll have money to blow.

Master P Kids Make the Case ... Dad Should Pay Less Child Support

8/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-master-p-tmz-01Master P's got his kids doing the dirty work for him in his divorce case -- penning emotional letters to convince a judge to reduce his monthly support payments to his ex, Sonya Miller.

In new docs, Master P says his 3 minor kids stay with him full time because their mother's drug addiction makes it impossible for her to care for them. That's why he wants to slash the $10,473 in child support and $16,574 in spousal support that he's currently paying.

The kids -- Hercy, Mercy and Itali -- all wrote letters, submitted to the court, testifying they're better off for living with their dad.

17-year-old daughter Itali made the most compelling case ... writing, "Although I love being with my mom I was unable to keep my grades up. Unfortunately, my mom was dealing with addiction issues that affected my older sister, who hasn't even had the opportunity to graduate high school" ... even though she's 19.

Itali says she's trying to avoid the same fate.

Master P also says he's not the baller he used to be -- claiming he's making $2,441 per month and only has $432 in the bank.

Boxer Victor Ortiz Pleads Guilty In Country Concert Brawl ... Ducks Jail Time

8/21/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0816-victor-ortiz-tmzBoxing star Victor Ortiz pled guilty to a battery charge stemming from a fight at a Kenny Chesney concert last summer but he won't spend a minute behind bars ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant and his brother were arrested at the Rose Bowl in July 2015 after allegedly beating the crap out of a random concertgoer.

The victim says he was minding his own business when the Ortiz brothers came out of nowhere and knocked him down .... and then beat him until he was unconscious. Victor was charged with misdemeanor battery and assault.

On Tuesday, the 29-year-old boxer struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which he pled guilty to the battery charge -- and instead of jail, he got 3 years probation. 

He's also required to complete 60 days of community service, 52 anger management classes and was told to stay away from the victim. His brother got a similar plea deal.

But the victim's war on the Ortiz brothers ain't over yet -- he sued both of 'em over the attack and is demanding a bunch of cash. That case is ongoing. 

Tinder Sued CEO 'Super Liked' My Idea ... And Jacked It!

8/21/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-tinder-super-like-tinder-01Tinder's idea of letting users "Super Like" each other beyond a basic right swipe is genius -- but it's also not theirs ... so claims a guy who's now suing the company.

John Mellesmoen claims in a new lawsuit he pitched the idea of the "Super Like" to Tinder's CEO, Sean Rad, back in 2014, and says Rad loved it ... promising to compensate him if the company ever used it. John says he hasn't seen a dime.

Mellesmoen claims he laid out the entire concept of the "Super Like" feature, which essentially allows users to buy someone a virtual drink instead of the just giving a "glance across the room" with a regular right swipe. 

Now Mellesmoen wants his cut. Only problem -- nothing's in writing. As for Tinder, a company spokesperson says this is a "baseless shakedown."
