NOFX's Fat Mike I Detoxed But I'm Going Back to Drugs and Booze

5/29/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525_Fat-Mike_tmzNOFX frontman Fat Mike entered -- and quickly exited -- a detox facility this week.

Reports surfaced Monday that Mike entered rehab to get sober -- but sources close to him say that's only half true.

What really went down is Mike voluntarily checked into an L.A. facility to ween himself off a 2x daily Percocet habit after experiencing prolonged stomach pain -- docs treated, then released him 6 days later. 

We're told the punk legend says he has no intention to tone down the punkness. He's not sobering up ... it's just a "mini break" for the sake of his health ... then back to the drugs and booze.

Fat Mike's been open about his vices -- his band just released 'Hepatitis Bathtub,' a book about drug abuse.

Johnny Manziel has gotten an ultimatum from his agent -- go to rehab ... or find a new agent. 

After TMZ Sports broke the story that Manziel was the passenger in an alleged hit-and-run incident over the weekend, Manziel's agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN's Adam Schefter he's laid down the gauntlet with the QB.

"I have terminated the standard representation with Johnny Manziel in the hopes of helping him get the treatment I believe he needs," Rosenhaus said.

"I have informed him that if he takes the immediate steps I have outlined for him that I will rescind the termination and continue to represent him. Otherwise the termination will become permanent."

"There is a five-day window for me to rescind the termination. I’m hoping he takes the necessary steps to get his life back on track."

Manziel was dropped by his previous agent Erik Burkhardt for similar reasons. Manziel did get treatment last year for an unspecified issue -- but later insisted he did NOT have a drinking problem. 

Tom Arnold Offers to Mentor Johnny Manziel ... 'Let's Have Lunch'

4/8/2016 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tom Arnold knows firsthand about the dangers of alcohol -- and says he wants to speak with Johnny Manziel to make sure the QB doesn't make the same mistakes he did. 

"I'd like to have lunch with him," Arnold said ... "He needs to get a mentor."

Arnold -- who's been very open about his own battle with substance abuse -- is clearly concerned about Manziel but says ... "maybe he's fine, but I'd love to sit down and talk with him."

As for Johnny -- he sought treatment for an undisclosed condition last year -- but says he's currently not drinking and "staying on track."

Lamar Odom Khloe Demanding Trip to Rehab ... He's Saying No, No, No!

3/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

032916-khole-kardashian-lamar-odom-tmz-02Lamar Odom's drinking has reached crisis level for Khloe Kardashian, and we've learned she desperately wants him to get help NOW ... but Lamar's digging in his heels.   

Sources close to the still married duo tell us Khloe's doing everything she can to convince him to get treatment for addiction. We're told LO's happy to go to physical rehab, but refuses to deal with his drug demons.

We're told Khloe's even suggested an outpatient program, but Odom remains defiant. 

Odom's own family members are also striking out. According to our sources, they've tried to convince him by pointing out several relatives, including his father, have addiction issues.  

We're told Lamar's been communicating with his 2 kids in NY recently, but seeing him in a bar makes even them worry dad will fall back out of their lives.

Bottom line: No one close to Lamar believes he can "casually" drink without opening the door to renewed drug abuse.

Khloe's telling friends and family there will come a point when "she has to stop trying" to save Lamar.

Josh Duggar Out of Rehab ... But Damaged Goods for Family's TV Gigs

3/12/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0310-josh-duggar-GETTY-01Josh Duggar's rehab stint isn't enough to get him back to work ... on TV, anyway -- he won't be back on camera for any of the Duggar programs.

Sources connected with production for the Duggars tell us TLC will NOT feature Josh on his own show, on family specials, or on his sisters' new series. We're told the family is focused on rebuilding their brand after his molestation scandal -- and trying to move forward without rehashing the past. 

Not everyone is persona non grata though ... we're told Josh's wife, Anna, will appear on "Jill & Jessa: Counting On," because she and Josh's children are actively involved with ongoing family story lines.

The Duggars released a statement after Josh left rehab for undisclosed therapy ... saying he will continue counseling and focus on rebuilding the relationships with his family now that he's back in Arkansas.

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.

Breaking News

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

12/27/2015 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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
EXCLUSIVE

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
EXCLUSIVE

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
EXCLUSIVE

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.

1113-scott-disick-beard-GETTY-02Scott Disick is fresh out of rehab lockdown, and already lining up business deals ... thanks to his new face fuzz.

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.

1112_scott_disick_kourtney_kardashian_TMZScott Disick is a changed man thanks to rehab, and the Kardashians are loving it ... so much so, Kourtney has NOT completely closed the door on a reconciliation. 

We're told Scott spent time with his kids and some of the Kardashians Wednesday night, and seemed like "a whole new him." Our source says he's been "amazing" since checking into rehab last month, and he gets a day off here and there to see his kids. 

And get this, Kourtney might still be open to patching things up. We're told it would take a LONG time for Scott to prove himself again, but it's not officially over.

Shortly before he met up with the fam, Disick was looking healthy and refreshed around Malibu.
