Chyna's Manager I Struck Deal with 'Intervention' Show ... Days Before Death

4/25/2016 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0425-chyna-intervention-wwe-TMZ-01Chyna's manager tells TMZ Sports ... he had recently struck a secret deal with the producers of the TV show "Intervention" to get Chyna help ... but she died before they could start production. 

We spoke with Anthony Anzaldo ... who tells us Chyna's closest friends had become concerned about her prescription drug use in recent weeks -- worried that she was over-medicating herself with Ambien and Valium. He's adamant Chyna's issue was ONLY with Rx meds.  

Anzaldo says he entered into talks with "Intervention" producers about doing an episode with Chyna -- in the hopes they could get her back on the right path before it was too late. 

We're told an agreement was reached -- and the plan was to get a bunch of Chyna's closest WWE friends, including Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mick Foley, to participate in the intervention. 

"An interventionalist was already lined up as was a facility that was going to take her for 90 days," Anzaldo says. We reached out to "Intervention" -- so far, no word back. 

Anzaldo says he became concerned when he hadn't heard from Chyna in days and went to her Redondo Beach apartment to check in on Wednesday evening. 

"I found her," Anzaldo says ... noting that he believes she died in her sleep. "She looked peaceful."

As for the future, Anzaldo says he's planning a huge memorial for Chyna -- with celebs and fans ... hoping to give Chyna the send-off she deserved.

4/24/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0422-cole-hauser-dui-GETTY-01Actor Cole Hauser was arrested for DUI after cops say he almost crashed on an L.A. freeway.

According to the arrest report, Hauser -- best known for his role as Carter Varone in "2 Fast 2 Furious" -- drifted in and out of lanes Sunday on the 101. Cops took notice and pulled him over.

Police say Hauser seemed drunk, and after a field sobriety test he was cuffed and taken to the station, where he was booked for DUI. 

He's out on $15k bail.

We could not reach Hauser or his rep for comment.

Prince Percocet Triggered OD Days Before Death

4/22/2016 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

42116-prince-getty-06Prince had OD'd on Percocet days before his death, and he ingested so much, EMTs had to administer a "save shot" at the airport where his plane made an emergency landing to save his life.

Sources in Moline, Illinois tell TMZ, Prince's entourage told responders he had taken the painkiller after his Atlanta concert which triggered the emergency.

Percocet is a painkiller which contains a combination of acetaminophen and oxycodone, an opioid. It is highly addictive.

We're told Prince was taking painkillers for a hip problem. We're told he had corrective surgery for his hips around 2010.

0422-prince-tmz-03As we reported, Prince went to his local Walgreens 4 times in the week leading up to his death. We got a photo of Prince in the parking lot of the Walgreens hours before he died. Witnesses say he was pacing and agitated, waiting for someone to bring out his meds.


Prince Treated for Drug Overdose Days Before Death

4/21/2016 4:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

42116-prince-getty-04Prince was treated for a drug overdose 6 days before his death ... multiple sources tell TMZ.

We broke the story ... Prince's private jet made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois last Friday, hours after he performed in Atlanta. At the time his reps said he was battling the flu ... something we questioned because his plane was only 48 minutes from home before the unscheduled landing.

Multiple sources in Moline tell us, Prince was rushed to a hospital and doctors gave him a "save shot" ... typically administered to counteract the effects of an opiate.

Our sources further say doctors advised Prince to stay in the hospital for 24 hours. His people demanded a private room, and when they were told that wasn't possible ... Prince and co. decided to bail. The singer was released 3 hours after arriving and flew home. 

We're told when Prince left he "was not doing well."

We know authorities in Minnesota are trying to get the hospital records from Moline to help determine cause of death.

We have made more than a dozen attempts to reach Prince's reps for comment, but they went radio silent.


Chyna Dead for Days ... No Signs of Suicide

4/21/2016 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0421-chyna-tmz-01There are no signs Chyna intended to die, based on what police found inside her apartment -- and she'd been deceased for at least a day ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us there was no suicide note left in her Redondo Beach, CA home. We're also told it appears the WWE legend had passed away a "day or two" prior to Wednesday evening ... when a friend found her body. The last known contact she had with anyone happened on Sunday evening.

As we first reported ... there were no illegal drugs, but officers did find legal prescription bottles. Our sources described the number of bottles as 3 or 4 ... "nothing out of the ordinary." Also, the bottles were not emptied. 

We're told several neighbors told investigators they suspected "overdose" as the cause of death since she'd seemed "under the influence" lately.

Waka Flocka Flame I'm Back on the Horse After My Weed 911

4/20/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0419-waka-flocka-fa-tmz-getty-02Waka Flocka Flame has not been scared straight after his medical emergency ... not by a long shot, because he's determined to make the most of 4/20.

As we reported, EMTs rushed to Waka's concert venue Sunday night after he consumed way too many edibles and smoked way too much weed. He was put in an ambulance, but after paramedics checked his vitals they decided he should sleep it off at home rather than in a hospital.

Waka tells us he will be high from morning 'til night on Weed Day, although he understands the concept of pacing himself a little better.

We'll check in with him on 4/21.  



We caught up with Waka at Reagan National in D.C. on Tuesday where he showed our photog his bag of treats and dished more details on his bug out in Seattle. Check it out. 

'Vanderpump Rules' Star Her Weed Parties Are Killing Me ... Neighbor Sues

4/19/2016 4:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0419_Scheana-Marie_TMZ-3update_graphic_red_barA rep for Scheana tells TMZ the star has never received any complaints from neighbors or management about weed ... as for the cat, we're told Scheana's cat isn't allowed outside and the one in the lawsuit is another neighbors.update_grey_gray_bar"Vanderpump Rules" star Scheana Shay's weed puffing parties are out of control, just like her black cat ... according to one pissed off neighbor.  

Scheana lives in a fancy L.A. high rise apartment, and a guy who shares a wall with her says his unit's been inundated by marijuana clouds drifting from her crib. He ain't happy about the contact high.

According to his lawsuit ... his spouse and young kids are getting nauseous from the smoke, and he's fed up with the noise that goes down when Scheana turns up. He even calls out Scheana's black cat.

He says she leaves it outdoors with its food ... which attracts ants that constantly scout his kitchen, bedroom, closet and bathrooms for more grub.

The guy's suing Shay and building management for a discount on his rent and damages.


Blake Shelton Big Legal Victory In Defamation Case

4/19/2016 10:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

41916-blake-shelton-tmz-05Blake Shelton just scored a big victory in his defamation lawsuit against In Touch ... the judge squarely rejected the magazine's bid to have the case thrown out ... and the judge scoffed at the editor's assertion they never wrote he was in rehab ... just that he should go.

The judge was clear ... the magazine was telling its readers Blake had an alcohol problem and went to rehab. The judge said false claims of rehab are libelous ... period. That's bad for In Touch.

The judge went even further ... saying the magazine knew full well when they published the story that Blake had not been to rehab. And, the judge said, the fact that they ran the headline anyway is powerful proof of malice -- something Blake needs to show to win the case.

One more interesting thing ... In Touch pointed to some of Blake's tweets in which he talks/jokes about him being a drunk. The magazine claimed since he cultivates an image of a hard-drinking party boy he can't sue for defamation. The judge called BS on that claim.

The case will now proceed to trial.


Ex-NY Giants WR Preston Parker 2nd Drug Arrest in 3 Weeks ... Did You Just Throw Pot?

4/19/2016 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News


It's deja vu all over again for ex-NY Giants wide receiver Preston Parker -- who was arrested for allegedly trying to ditch drugs during a traffic stop this week ... the 2ND time in 3 weeks.

Parker -- who was cut by the Giants in 2015 after dropping a TON of passes -- was pulled over in Boynton Beach, FL on Monday for illegal tint on his black Chevy Malibu. During the stop, cops say he tossed a clear bag of the sticky icky out of his window. 

Cops found the bag and tried to take Parker into custody while he reportedly resisted. 

But just 3 weeks ago, cops say they had almost the exact same experience with the 29-year-old -- with drama beginning after a stop for tinted windows. 

Only that time, cops say Parker tried to ditch COCAINE -- and when they finally pulled him over, they allegedly found a fully loaded gun in his car. 

Hope he saved some of that NFL cash for a good lawyer ... 

Waka Flocka Flame There Is Such a Thing As TOO High!

4/19/2016 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0419-waka-flocka-instagram-03Even accomplished weed smokers like Waka Flocka Flame can overdo it.

The rapper was in Seattle Sunday and his evening was interrupted by some EMTs who gave him a lift in their ambulance. Waka blames it on "#nonGMO edibles and 20 or more blunts."

The rep says Waka didn't end up in the hospital, which is weird because that's usually the dropping off point for an ambo.

FYI ... recreational weed is legal in the state of Washington, though we doubt that would have stopped Waka.


Blake Shelton I Drink, Get Over It!

4/18/2016 1:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0418_blake_shelton_drinking_concert_AKM-GSI-2Blake Shelton sent a message to his fans -- and possibly In Touch magazine -- about his boozing habits during his latest concert.

Blake played the Tortuga Music Festival in Fort Lauderdale this weekend ... and while onstage he took several healthy swigs from a cup that read, "I drink, get over it" -- and he made sure cameras captured the phrase.

Blake recently filed a defamation lawsuit against In Touch for its cover story about him hitting "rock bottom" and going to rehab. In Touch says there's no defamation, since Blake's proudly created a hard drinking image.

We suspect these pics might end up in court.

As Blake puts it (in song) ... "Cause the more I drink, the more I drink."
