Robert Downey Jr.'s Son Judge Dismisses Cocaine Case

3/8/2016 1:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0308-indio-downey-arriving-to-court-GETTY-02Robert Downey Jr.'s son has followed in his footsteps, getting his drug record wiped clean.

Indio Downey showed up at an L.A. courthouse Tuesday morning, where a judge dismissed his cocaine case, after he submitted proof he had successfully completed a drug diversion program.

The dismissal comes 2 months after California Governor Jerry Brown gave Robert Downey Jr. a full pardon for his drug convictions.

Indio spoke to Judge Lauren Weis Birnstein in open court, saying, "I would like to say I am truly grateful for the experience I had over the last 20 months in recovery." He went on, "I'm so blessed to have my life back. I hope to be an inspiration to work with others in the future."

Indio was arrested in June 2014 in West Hollywood when cops drove alongside the vehicle in which he was riding and noticed he was smoking something out of a pipe. Cops found coke on the actor's son.

The dismissal erases the entire criminal case ... it's as if Indio was never even arrested.

1124-johnny-manziel-benched-GETTY-01Johnny Manziel's father says he's tried to get his son into rehab TWICE in the past week -- but Johnny refuses -- and now he's concerned he could die if he doesn't get help, asap. 

Paul Manziel spoke with the Dallas Morning News and said, "I truly believe if they can't get him help, he won't live to see his 24th birthday." 

Paul told DMN his family first tried to admit 23-year-old Johnny to the Enterhealth Ranch addiction facility in Van Alstyne on Saturday (after the incident with Colleen Crowley) -- but he refused to stay.

On Tuesday, Paul Manziel said he tried a second time ... begging his son to enter the Carrollton Springs Hospital ... which specializes in treating patients who suffer from mental illness and/or addiction.

Again, Johnny refused to stay ... Paul says. 

We spoke with Manziel Thursday ... and he insisted, "I'm completely stable. I'm safe and secure."

Chris Brown & Scott Disick We're Keeping Each Other Sober

Exclusive Details

1220-chris-brown-scott-disck-1-OAK-SPLASH-01Scott Disick and Chris Brown seem like a bad combo ... they've both struggled with substance abuse yet they've been hanging out ... but they claim they've actually become each other's support system.

We're told the 2 have become fast friends and have bonded over water ... and lots of it. Scott and Chris both insist that's all they drank when they went clubbing together a few days back at 1OAK.

They actually have a lot in common.  Both of their baby mamas have called them out for drugs and/or booze and have threatened to get a judge to yank access to the kids.

We're told Chris has pulled back in a big way since Mia Guzman put him under under the microscope, and Scott's faced the same issues with Kourtney.  It sounds weird and maybe it's a pipe dream, but they both think each can help the other stay strong and sober.

There's a side benefit for Chris ... the more time he spends with Scott and his crew, the less time his has for gangbangers.

The little things in life ...

Michael Lohan Banging Kate Again No Restraining Order Needed, Your Honor

12/11/2015 1:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1211-michael-lohan-kate-major-TMZ-01Michael Lohan wants to be able to hookup with his estranged wife without fear of getting arrested -- no easy task when you're married to Kate Major, but he's asking a judge nonetheless.

TMZ obtained docs Lohan filed asking the court to lift a restraining order Kate got against him last month when she feared for her safety. Sources connected to the troubled couple tell us Kate's been calling and texting him ever since her drunken arrest on a Jet Blue flight ... even during her rehab stint.

We're told they've even hooked up a couple times at a hotel where Lohan is staying. Obviously, Michael is worried he could get arrested for the contact with Kate ... as long as the restraining order is in effect.

While Michael's been in a hotel, she's living in a condo ... according to our sources. Their 2 kids are living with Kate's mom.

Scott Disick Here's My Plan to ... Win Back Kourtney

11/23/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1120-scott-disick-kourtney-kardashian-TMZ-01Scott Disick is going all out to prove he's worthy to Kourtney Kardashian, but in true Lord D fashion his strategy involves making a few extra dollars while he's at it.

We've learned Scott is unloading his Bev Hills party pad. He went off the deep end while living there ... partly because the place is a magnet for hot chicks and wild parties -- a real panty dropper. 

The home's already in escrow in the high $4 million range. Scott bought it for $3.69 mil ... so he'll likely pocket some cash off the sale. We're told Scott's looking to make real estate his main source of income post-rehab instead of club appearances. He's already been out hunting for other investment properties.

As for putting down roots -- Scott's reportedly looking to move into the same neighborhood as Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner ... just a stones throw from Kourtney and the kids.

Baby steps ...


'Love And Hip Hop' Stevie J I'm Going to Rehab To Stay Outta Jail

11/22/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1117_stevie-j_TMZStevie J just avoided going back to jail, but there's a catch ... he's going to rehab instead. 

Stevie was in court last week for his child support case so the judge could decide whether to revoke his bail for failing a recent drug test. Luck was on Stevie's side -- instead of locking him up, the judge ordered him to enroll in an outpatient drug treatment program. 

Under the order, Stevie must report to a facility twice a week and comply with drug testing. 

He has to go back to court next month, and show proof he's been following rehab rules. If he screws up -- jail time will be back in play.

We've learned Dollar Beard Club has lined up Scott to be a spokesperson for its line of beard oils, waxes, balms, and combs. We're told the company approached Scott a few days ago after TMZ first posted photos of him out in Malibu.

The terms of the deal are under wraps, but we're told Scott's duties will require him to push the bearded agenda out to his nearly 20 million social media followers.

Lord Disick seems ready-made for one of those awesome ads.

10/23/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1022_darryl-strawberry_lamar_khloe_gettyDarryl Strawberry says Khloe Kardashian's decision to call off the divorce from Lamar Odom didn't just save their marriage ... but maybe Lamar's life ... because LO desperately needs her love and support to get back on his feet.

Strawberry knows what he's talking about -- he not only battled drug addiction during the height of his MLB career (he's now sober) but also runs a treatment center for recovering addicts.

So, when we asked him about the Odom situation, he stressed that Khloe is CRUCIAL to his recovery.

"Lamar stands a much better chance with her by his side. When you stand and confront your problems as man and wife, it makes you stronger. It did for me."

"Most people aren't going to care, so many people walk away. But if they face all these things together I hope that with the help of God he can get his life back in order."

FYI -- Strawberry met his current wife Tracy at a Narcotics Anonymous convention in 2003 and they have since written a book called, "The Imperfect Marriage," to help people in broken relationships.

In fact, Darryl says he wants to offer up his expertise to Lamar and Khloe -- "If they need anything, we're here with prayers and support."

Blake Shelton Furious Over 'Rehab' Cover Sues Magazine for Millions

10/19/2015 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1019-blake-shelton-TMZ-01Blake Shelton has just declared war on In Touch -- suing the magazine over a cover insinuating he checked into rehab after his split from Miranda Lambert ... and he's looking for MILLIONS. 

Shelton's beef is over a September 28th cover that featured a picture of Blake along with the headline, "Rehab for Blake ... He Finally Hits Rock Bottom."


In his lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court by Shelton's attorney Larry Stein, Shelton says he's NOT in rehab and has no plans to go to rehab -- and he wants to set the record straight by suing In Touch's parent company, Bauer Media. 

In fact, Blake calls BS on several specific lines from the article, including:

-- "Blake has hit rock bottom" 
--  "His friends are terrified that he could end up dead at this rate"
-- "Blake's drinking and womanizing are what helped torpedo his 4-year marriage"
-- Mr. Shelton was "caught" by Ms. Lambert with "a bunch of naked women" in their home 
-- "His close friends have talked about an intervention"

Blake wants AT LEAST $2 MILLION to make things right.

Exclusive Details

1012-scott-disick-tmz-01Scott Disick is back in rehab ... partly in hopes of winning a victory in his child custody battle. 

Sources connected to Disick tell us he checked in last weekend to a facility in Malibu, and has not only admitted he has a problem ... but cut ties with some of his usual party pals.

We're told Disick took the leap because of his kids -- he's gunning for unsupervised visits. He's told friends Kourtney Kardashian won't let him have unsupervised visitation until she knows he's clean. Us Weekly first reported Scott's effort to get clean. 

Disick made an abbreviated run at rehab earlier this year when he went to a center in Costa Rica that used hallucinogenic plants for treatment. He lasted a week before bailing.

Scott's decision to enter rehab came, coincidentally, just as Lamar Odom was going off the rails in Nevada.

The 2007 Cy Young award winning pitcher just issued a statement saying, "Today I am checking myself into an alcohol rehabilitation center to receive the professional care and assistance needed to treat my disease."

"I love baseball and I love my teammates like brothers, and I am also fully aware that I am leaving at a time when we should all be coming together for one last push toward the World Series. It hurts me deeply to do this now, but I owe it to myself and to my family to get myself right. I want to take control of my disease, and I want to be a better man, father and player."

Sabathia says he has the full support of the Yankees organization and expects to return to the team next season and continue "playing the game that brings me so much happiness."

Sabathia reportedly made $23 million this season. 

The announcement comes months after TMZ Sports broke the story that Sabathia was involved in a street brawl outside of a nightclub in Toronto following a Yankees game. Sabathia had to be held back from hecklers who were saying the Yankees suck.
