Wiz Khalifa My Favorite Beer is High Life Adjacent

5/1/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0427-wiz-khalifa-tmz-khalifa-kush-01Wiz Khalifa doesn't always drink beer -- he's more of a smoker -- but when he does he likes his brew infused with hemp.  

Yeah, Khalifa is gearing up to launch his own line of beer, juice, carbonated juice, energy drinks, and non-alcoholic cocktails ... all infused with the hemp plant. 

According to the trademark docs Wiz filed he wants to sell the drinks under his "Khalifa Kush" handle ... which is also the brand he uses to push his strains of weed.

Bad news though if you're looking for a liquid high -- even though hemp looks like weed, the THC levels are too low to produce a strong buzz. 

Good news for the Beyhive -- Wiz is also making a hemp-laced lemonade. Becky not included.

Prince Traveled Miles For Prescription Pill Addiction

4/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

429-paisley-park-3Prince passed up at least 8 pharmacies close to Paisley Park on his way to pick up prescription pills hours before his death ... and it could all have been to hide a paper trail of multiple prescriptions.

As TMZ reported ... Prince visited Walgreens chain drugstores 4 times in the week leading up to his death. However, the location the singer visited the night before his death was 6 miles from home. An odd choice considering there were several other pharmacies located just over a mile from his house.

Although it's unclear exactly why Prince traveled so far ... family members tell TMZ they were worried the singer was using multiple doctors and aliases. Most pharmacies will throw up a red flag if a patient visits too often ... so by visiting multiple locations in his area, the singer could have flown under the radar.

In fact, the Walgreens Prince was photographed at the night before his death is the same one that's 6 miles away in Minnetonka.

Prince Cops Search Singer's Pharmacy for Clues

4/29/2016 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

428-prince-gettyAuthorities descended on a Walgreens near Paisley Park and served a search warrant on the pharmacy, TMZ has learned, looking for a prescription paper trail that could unravel the cause of Prince's death.

It's the same drug store chain where Prince made 4 Rx runs in the week leading up to his death.

We're told investigators made their move Thursday. Once inside, they beelined it for the pharmacy and spent several hours combing through records.

As we reported, authorities are especially interested in Percocet ... the drug that triggered a near-fatal OD 6 days before Prince's death. They're also looking for other prescriptions in Prince's name or identifiable aliases.

We're told investigators are also targeting other pharmacies and doctors who may have helped Prince procure meds.

EXCLUSIVE

429-kim-richards-tmzupdate_graphic_red_bar

1:55 PM PST -- A rep for Kim showed up in court and conceded Kim had no proof she'd made progress in completing her AA classes or community service. The judge withdrew the warrant and set a probation violation hearing for June 3. The judge could throw Kim in jail after the hearing if he determines she didn't make a sufficient dent in the classes or community service.

9:40 AM PST -- The bench warrant has now been signed by a judge. Bail was set at $26,000.

update_grey_gray_bar

Kim Richards is staring down an arrest warrant in her shoplifting case because she's ditching her AA classes ... as far as the court is concerned, anyway.

TMZ has learned the judge is about to issue a warrant for the 'RHOBH' star. Our sources say Kim never turned in documentation to prove she's attended the number of AA classes ordered in her plea deal.

Kim's been struggling in all her cases. As we've reported ... the judge in her Beverly Hills arrest already scolded her for not doing community labor, and shot down her foot injury excuse.

She's supposed to do a total of 52 AA classes and 30 days community labor for the shoplifting arrest -- but if she doesn't present some proof, STAT ... she'll be doing jail time.

Denver Broncos CB I've Been Hacked, Too ... Just Like Tunsil

4/29/2016 9:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

429-chris-harris-gettyAnother NFL star says his social media account has been HACKED -- with Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. saying someone infiltrated his Instagram to post a potentially damaging photo. 

Harris -- a 2-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champ -- went to Twitter and wrote, "Someone hacking IGs someone just tried me smh."

We didn't see the photo ourselves -- but we're told the pic appeared to show Harris smoking a rolled cigarette.  

Unclear if there's a connection between the Harris hack and the Laremy Tunsil incident. 

Still, Harris has a message to other NFL stars -- CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS. 

Johnny Manziel Buys 300 Shots on Draft Night ... 'This S*** Wicked'

4/29/2016 6:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Johnny Manziel drowned his NFL draft night sorrows in Fireball Thursday night ... ordering up 300 SHOTS at an Ohio bar for a few hundred of his not so closest friends ... and TMZ Sports has the video.

Two years after he was selected in the 1st round ... the unemployed QB hit up Dahlia Bar and Lounge in Columbus right after the 1st round of the '16 draft wrapped up.

You can see in the video Johnny was in a generous mood ... buying 300 shots of whiskey and some Miller Lites for the crowd. 

We're told Johnny spent the night hanging out in the DJ booth with Justin Bieber's tour DJ ... JB had a concert in Columbus on Thursday, but was a no-show at the bar.

Earlier in the day, Manziel was reportedly hangin' at ANOTHER Columbus bar ... watching the draft while sporting a white headband -- the same headband he was rocking later that night. 

FYI, the Browns drafted a WR last night ... if only they had a QB to throw him the ball.

NFL's Robert Nkemdiche Laremy Tunsil Hacker Is 'Evil'

4/29/2016 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The person who hacked Laremy Tunsil right before the NFL Draft -- and posted video of the football player hitting a gas mask bong -- is pure evil ... so says Laremy's ex-teammate Robert Nkemdiche

Nkemdiche -- the 29th pick in the NFL Draft -- played with Tunsil at Ole Miss ... and was IN THE ROOM with the lineman when the video came out ... so, we had to ask his thoughts. 

"That's wild dude ... that's evil, whoever did that."

We also asked if he thought Laremy's stepfather was involved -- since the two have been feuding over an alleged domestic violence incident since last year. For the record, Laremy's stepfather has denied any involvement.  

Still, Nkemdiche had some advice for his friend -- "Laremy, brush it off dog ... I love you. I don't care about all that."

Later that night, Nkemdiche was spreading the love ... giving money to a homeless guy he befriended on the street. Cool video.

042616-ric-flair-tmzupdate_graphic_red_bar4:28 PM PT -- A rep for the Mass. State Police tells TMZ Sports ... Flair's injury was NOT to his hand, but rather his head. 

Cops did not say how Flair sustained the injury. 

Witnesses at the airport tell us Flair was bleeding from his forehead ... with one person saying, "It was dripping down from his head to his neck. A significant amount of blood."

We reached back out to Flair's rep -- so far, no word back.update_grey_gray_barRic Flair was treated for a cut on his hand at Logan International Airport in Boston Wednesday morning ... but witnesses say it was the culmination of a very bizarre morning involving the WWE legend. 

Here's what we know ... Flair hit up Lucky's Lounge in the airport before his flight -- and multiple witnesses say Flair was acting like a drunk person. 

One witness says Flair was loud and obnoxious. Another witness says he was "having a tough time" and "shambling about."

042616-ric-flair-tmz-02But we spoke with Airport Police Sgt. Donlon who tells us Flair was NOT intoxicated. 

Sgt. Donlon says airport officials got a call for a "man with a cut on his hand" -- and police and medical personnel responded. Flair was treated -- deemed not drunk -- and was allowed to get on his flight.  

We spoke with Flair's rep who told us Ric is fine -- and made his flight. 

As for how Flair injured his hand -- we're working on it. 

042616-ric-flair-tmz-03

9:43 AM PT -- Ric's agent, Melinda Morris Zanoni, tells us she has spoken with Flair and issued the following statement: 

"Ric has been working every day around the clock, including internationally, for a month straight and has injuries on his hand that were being looked into this morning."

"While it is true Ric Flair and his buddies have been keeping airport bars in business since the 70s that was not the case at all in Boston. I just hung up with Ric, he is already on the flight and all is good."

EXCLUSIVE

Tom Arnold has a good question ... why didn't Chyna's friends stage an intervention for her BEFORE her agent struck a deal with the TV show???

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Chyna's manager says in the weeks before her death, he was in talks to have the WWE legend appear on "Intervention" -- but she died before production began

Arnold -- a recovering addict himself -- says waiting to take action when it comes to substance abuse is a terrible idea ... because time is of the essence.

Prince Cops Interview Family Attorney Claims Percocet, Cocaine Use

4/26/2016 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

42616-prince-gettyPolice in the Prince death investigation have interviewed a lawyer who repped 2 of the singer's siblings who claimed Prince abused Percocet and cocaine and they feared he'd "die young." 

Mike Padden is an attorney who repped Prince's half sister Lorna and stepbrother Duane in the early 2000s. Padden tells TMZ both Lorna and Duane separately told him Prince regularly abused the drugs. BTW, Duane was very close to Prince and even worked as his bodyguard.  

We're told the lawyer contacted the cops and they called him back over the weekend for an interview and he relayed the information about the drugs.

Duane died in 2011 and Lorna passed in 2006, so Padden's information is not up to date. Another very close family member -- who was in touch with Prince 'til the end -- also tells TMZ Prince had used those drugs for many years.

There's another point of view ... we've spoken with several people who were around Prince in the last few years of his life who say they saw no evidence of drug use ... saying Prince was a "health nut."

As we reported, Prince OD'd on Percocet 6 days before he died.

The investigation into his death is ongoing.

Lawrence Taylor On Manziel: 'It's Not the '80s' 'Can't Do What You Want Anymore'

4/26/2016 9:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Lawrence Taylor has some real talk for Johnny Manziel -- "It's not the 1980s. It's not the early 1990s. You cannot do what you want to do in the NFL anymore."

TMZ Sports sat down with LT at a signing event at Miami Mike's sports bar in Jersey ... and with his well-known issues with substance abuse, we asked the NFL legend if he had any advice for the troubled Manziel. Taylor's initial reaction -- "He's gotta get the monkey off his back."

From there, Taylor went on to explain how social media is forcing NFL players to actually behave in public nowadays ... because there's a greater chance you'll get caught. 

"With social media and all that stuff man, listen ... Man, back in our day, if you didn't hear it on Monday, motherf**ker you free!!! You free!!" 

"You ain't gotta worry about it if you don't hear about it on Monday because listen, when I would do some sh*t ... I'm just trying to get through Monday!" 

He added, "But nowadays it's 24-hour news. It's 24-hour sports. It's social media which kills ya."

Taylor says for that reason, he has ZERO social media presence -- no Twitter, no Instagram, no Snapchat. 

Taylor concluded by looking directly in the camera -- waving off his friend and ex-teammate O.J. Anderson -- and giving Manziel one final piece of life advice:

"Listen, at the end of the day, you do what you gotta do to make what you gotta make to do what you wanna do. So listen, after that ... f*ck it."

Billy Dee Williams Saddles Up Again To Pitch Colt 45

EXCLUSIVE

0425_billy_dee_williams_colt_tmz

Billy Dee Williams' mug is coming soon to a can near you ... 'cause he's now the face of his old go-to beverage -- Colt 45.

Lando Calrissian is reprising his role as the malt liquor's spokesman, but this time his signature smirk and mustache are emblazoned on the can because -- well, why not? It works every time.

Billy Dee faced heavy criticism when he first signed on to promote Colt 45 back in the 80s ... due to concerns about marketing booze in underprivileged neighborhoods. 

We asked Billy about that on Tuesday's TMZ Live -- and it's clearly NOT an issue to him.
