JonBenet Ramsey Murder House Owners Rejected CBS Documentary

9/22/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0921-jonbenet-ramsey-house-splash-getty-01The owners of the Boulder house where JonBenet Ramsey was killed told documentary producers to take a hike when they literally tried to return to the scene of the crime.

Carol Schuller Milner and her husband currently live in the home, and she tells TMZ ... a production company contacted them months ago asking to lease their house. She says they immediately turned them down ... saying they had NO interest in dredging up horrific memories.

If you saw CBS' special, "The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey" ... you noticed producers had to build replica rooms, because they had zero access to the real deal. 

Even if the Milners had played ball ... Carol says they made major renovations 10 years ago, which included the basement. She says it wasn't because they were creeped out -- they'd already been there for 2 years -- it was just time for a makeover.

Carol says they didn't watch the documentary, and they've always separated the JonBenet tragedy from their home.

9/21/2016 4:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The T.I. concert where gunshots rang out causing a mass panic left 2 fans seriously injured ... according to the lawsuit they just dropped on the show's promoter and venue.

You'll recall ... rapper Troy Ave's been charged with attempted murder for opening fire backstage before the May concert at Irving Plaza in NYC. Four people were hit ... one fatally, but the lawsuit was filed by fans who were NOT shot.

In the suit, they say the venue didn't adequately screen people entering the concert ... which led to the shooting. The plaintiffs say they suffered serious physical injuries and mental anguish.

Their attorney, Vincent Provenzano, tells us his clients were trampled in the chaos of people rushing for exits during the shooting. 

They're suing Live Nation and Irving Plaza -- aka the deep pockets -- for unspecified damages.

Exclusive Details

0921-adrien-broner-tmzBoxing superstar Adrien Broner will not be prosecuted for allegedly pulling a gun on a man and violently robbing him earlier this year ... TMZ Sports has confirmed. 

We broke the story ... Broner was charged with felonious assault and aggravated robbery after allegedly getting into a fight over a bet at a Cincinnati bowling alley back in January. 

A jury trial was scheduled to begin Wednesday, but according to a Hamilton County court clerk, the prosecutor's witness was a no-show ... so the judge dropped the charges.

Broner was present in court with his lawyer.

It seems like AB is completely off the hook in this case -- the alleged victim dropped his civil suit against him a few months ago.

A rep for the boxer tells us, "We are happy that the charges were dropped. It was a major setback, but we're glad we can move on from this and focus on getting AB back in the ring."

Emma Watson Take Down Semi-Nude Pics Or Else!

9/20/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0919-emma-watson-gettyEmma Watson got justice by siccing her legal team on a site that posted racy pics of her in a see-through top without a bra.

Emma's lawyers sent a cease and desist letter to the website, Celeb Jihad -- which somehow acquired private photos of Emma in a sheer top. The outfit exposed her breasts and nipples.

Her legal team put it in pretty simple terms -- Emma owns the pics and the copyright on them, so Celeb Jihad was breaking the law by posting them. According to the letter, the photos were taken by Emma's stylist, who then gave Emma all rights.

Message received loud and clear -- shortly after the site got the letter, Emma's pics were removed.

Then the pre-order links! THE JIG IS UP YALL GUYS REAL RAPPERS! Make sure y'all go support them industry cats!"update_grey_gray_barThe Game is accusing Meek Mill of snitching because of the investigation into the robbery of Sean Kingston in an L.A. nightclub.

Game ripped into Meek onstage Thursday night, but it was unclear why he was calling him a snitch. Sources close to both rappers tell us this goes back to a June incident at Penthouse Nightclub & Dayclub.

TMZ broke the story ... Kingston got smashed in the head with a bottle and then the attackers snatched a $300k chain off his neck. Both Game and Meek were in the club that evening.

We're told Game believes Meek dropped a dime on him to Kingston's people, and told them Game or someone in his crew was involved in the heist. 

Onstage in Miami, Game strongly hinted investigators questioned him about the crime. 

Our law enforcement sources tell us Game was never a suspect ... and the investigation's been closed because Kingston's no longer cooperating.
