Lamar Odom Prosecution for Coke Possession Unlikely

11/28/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-lamar-odom-tmz-01Lamar Odom is in desperate shape medically, but legally we're told he may get cut a break.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the Nye County D.A. in Nevada is backing off the statements made by the Sheriff, who said there was a strong chance Lamar would be prosecuted for cocaine possession. 

TMZ broke the story, Lamar's blood revealed he was high on coke when he fell into unconsciousness at the Love Ranch brothel.

Our sources tell us the D.A. now says they will consider Lamar's medical condition and mental state in deciding whether to charge him. We broke the story, Lamar is barely able to speak and cannot walk. His cognitive functions are also severely impaired. 

Fact is ... the D.A. really isn't cutting Lamar a special break, because we did some checking and couldn't find a single case in Nye County where someone was prosecuted for cocaine possession when they landed in the hospital with severe damage. 

And there's another factor ... we're told Lamar is so bad off, he might not even be legally competent to stand trial.

1125_kate-major-tmzupdate_graphic_red_bar9:00 PM PST -- A law enforcement official tells TMZ once the plane landed, Kate was turned over to the FBI.update_grey_gray_barMichael Lohan's estranged wife Kate Major was wasted on a plane, and ended up getting busted by cops in New Orleans ... TMZ has learned.

Sources on the plane say Major was hauled off a JetBlue flight after she allegedly threatened flight attendants and other passengers during an argument over legroom. The flight was headed to L.A., but the pilot put it down in New Orleans when Major got out of hand.

Police officers walked her off the plane. It's unclear if she was arrested or booked for anything. 

The saddest part of Kate's mid-air bender -- we're told she was flying to L.A. to enter a 30 day live-in rehab program.

'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. 

Avril Lavigne I Got Room For Ryan Cabrera

11/20/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Avril Lavigne is a great pal ... opening her doors to Ryan Cabrera and not charging him a cent.

The two had been spotted around LA together, sparking a bunch of dating rumors ... truth is, they're just longtime pals.

We're told Ryan's former girlfriend kicked him to the curb because of his hardcore boozing, and that's when Avril opened her doors.

Avril's been known to take care of guys with drinking problems ... she was married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley, and his out-of-control drinking reportedly caused the split.

Avril and Ryan have known each other for more than a decade. They're both seeing other people and we're told nothing romantic's going on.

11/19/2015 2:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Ty Lawson may not have a long season ... he just pled guilty to charges stemming from his January drunk driving arrest.

Ty pled guilty to driving while ability impaired, as well as failure to drive in a single lane. He faces up to 180 days in jail. 

The Denver incident is not his only arrest this year. He was pulled over and arrested this summer in LA and went to rehab afterwards. He's due in court next week for that charge.

Sentencing for the Denver charges is set for January ... right about mid-season.

Kyle Richards does not see any looming danger now that her sister Kim is back on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' despite the fact that there's booze on the set.

Exclusive Video

Justin Timberlake was on his game -- his country game, his drinking game, and his trash talking game -- as he walked out of a Chris Stapleton concert in L.A. ... and the video is HILARIOUS!

Justin went to see his "Tennessee Whiskey" pal play the El Rey Theater Monday night, and it sounds like JT threw down a few during the show.

We love Country Justin.

Dr. Oz Charlie Sheen Is Healthier Now ... Than When He Was Snorting Coke

11/18/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Oz believes Charlie Sheen is healthier HIV positive than he ever was when boozing and abusing hardcore drugs like cocaine. 

We got Oz Tuesday after his show, where one of Charlie's doctors and unprotected sexual partners yakked it up with him.

Oz thinks the chances of contracting HIV from Charlie Sheen are about the same as someone getting struck by a bolt of lighting. 

In case you're wondering ... the chances of getting struck by lightning in the U.S. are roughly 1 in a million. 

Lamar Odom D.A. Mulling Drug Prosecution Victim of Celebrity Justice?

11/17/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1116-lamar-odom-tmz-01Lamar Odom is now in the crosshairs of prosecutors who may file cocaine possession charges against him, but if they do, it could be a first for the D.A., which raises troubling questions.

Nye County D.A. Angela Bello says her office is considering filing criminal charges against Lamar -- either possession of coke or being under the influence of a controlled substance.

We've done some checking, and we were unable to find a single case in Nye County where someone OD'd, landed in the hospital, and was prosecuted for drug possession.

An official from the Nye County Sheriff's office tells us they have definitely referred such cases to the D.A., but the official does not know of any cases that have actually been prosecuted. 

We contacted the D.A. and asked if they ever prosecuted someone who ended up in the hospital after OD'ing on drugs, but we could find none.

What's particularly troublesome with Lamar ... as we reported, he's unable to walk, can barely speak and has substantially impaired cognitive function. He may not even be competent to stand trial.

The question is ... is he being targeted because he's a celebrity? A rep in the D.A.'s office tells us, "He's not being treated any differently because he's a celebrity. He's being treated just like any other Joe Schmo."

Exclusive Details

Justin Bieber got all kinds of crazy celebrating his album release Thursday night -- so crazy, he downed a whole bottle ... of beer.

Check out this video of Justin leaving the Man Cave Sports Bar -- first, he responded to country star John Rich's rant against him. But then some fans ask him how much he had to drink in the bar.

Bieber was straight up about his boozing ... if you can call it that.

Earlier this week, Justin was partying at 1 OAK for French Montana's birthday and we got some video of him having just ONE bottle again. Of course, that one was Ciroc, but he only sipped.

Ever since that Rae Sremmurd show ... moderation's been the name of the game for JB.

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.
