Hope Solo's Husband WANTED MAN ... Bench Warrant Issued

5/18/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517_jerramy-stevens_gettyHope Solo's husband is in a world of trouble -- his probation has been revoked and a warrant has been issued for his arrest stemming from his '15 DUI arrest ... according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports.  

We broke the story ... ex-Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens was arrested in Manhattan Beach, CA last year when cops say he was drunkenly driving the Team USA soccer van with Hope on board. 

At the time, sources told us both Hope and Jerramy were extremely difficult during the arrest -- and tried to play the "don't you know who we are?" card. It didn't work. 

Stevens -- who had a prior DUI conviction -- was sentenced to 4 years probation and was ordered into an alcohol treatment program.

But according to court records, obtained by TMZ Sports, Stevens failed to appear at the clerk's office for a progress report hearing to show he's been attending the program ... so the judge revoked his probation and issued a warrant in the amount of $30k. 

Now, Stevens' fate is in the hands of the judge -- who could order the ex-NFL player to serve jail time, unless Stevens has a real good excuse. 

We reached out to Stevens' camp for comment -- so far, no word back.  

update_graphic_red_bar6:43 AM PT -- We spoke with Steven's attorney Craig Renetzky who insists the whole thing is a "communication glitch" between the court and the alcohol program. 

"[Stevens] is doing everything he’s supposed to be doing but the alcohol program didn’t get the court [the official progress report]." 

The attorney says he plans to personally go to the court today to straighten things out -- and is adamant he will prove Stevens did not violate the terms of his probation.

5/18/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517-chris-brown-tmz-01Chris Brown got thrown off a private jet for allegedly hotboxing the aircraft.

TMZ obtained a Miami-Dade police report which says cops were called to the Signature Aviation at Miami International Airport Monday after Brown's pilot complained he smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from the cabin.  

We're told the pilot had warned Brown and his entourage not to light up on the aircraft, but they ignored him even before the plane pushed back.  

When cops arrived they smelled it too, and kicked all passengers off the aircraft. No one was arrested.

Brown's friends were arrogant about the ordeal, chronicling everything on Snapchat. 

We're told the smell of smoke was so strong, the pilot had to open all the doors and air the aircraft out.

Rihanna Whiskey Makes Me Spend Crazy

5/17/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna's dropping dough all over Texas and one Austin bartender's reaping the benefits. 

RiRi turned up over the weekend at The Lodge on 6th, where she showed the staff mad love. Not that she was boozing out of control -- she had a show the next day -- and her tab was only $82.25.

Still, we're told she left a fat tip of $200 for her barkeep!

Rihanna and her crew weren't there long -- they arrived at 1:15 and stayed until last call, sipping Jameson and Cokes while high-fiving fans. We're told her bodyguards only stepped in to block the restroom when girls tried to follow her.

From bars to strip clubs -- she spends freely, deep in the heart of Texas (clap, clap, clap, clap)!


President Obama Passes Drug Test from Tommy Chong ... Bill Clinton Does NOT

5/16/2016 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bill Clinton definitely didn't inhale because it's likely he never even had a joint, according to Tommy Chong who says Bill failed a simple test ... which our current Prez aced.

The 'Cheech and Chong' star was at LAX signing autographs and fielding questions about all things weed ... when we asked which past commander in chief he'd invite for a smoke sesh.

Naturally, we were expecting Clinton's name would be mentioned -- based on his infamous I "didn't inhale" comment. But Tommy shocked us when he explained why he doesn't buy Clinton's marijuana confession.

As for President Obama ... his weed status is golden. Or green.

Lamar Odom Courted Back to Nevada Brothel ... 'No Drugs This Time'

5/15/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0512_dennis_hoff_lamar_odom_love_ranch_getty_tmzTalk about a shocking comeback attempt ... 

The man who owns the Nevada brothel where Lamar Odom overdosed last year says he wants L.O. back -- offering free women and booze ... but is adamant, absolutely NO DRUGS THIS TIME!! 

So, why would anyone think this is a good idea?  

We spoke with Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof who says sex and alcohol weren't Lamar's issues -- it was drugs. So as long as Lamar stays clean, why not go back to a place he enjoyed? 

Hof says he has a strict NO DRUGS policy at his place -- and thinks the companionship and some Remy Martin at the Love Ranch could be good for Lamar. 

"First night and 2 girls are on me," Hof said ... "plus all the Remy Martin you can drink." 

Hof says he will personally ensure L.O.'s privacy -- shutting down the security cams and collecting all phones. 

As for people who will be critical of his offer, Hof says -- "Don't forget, the people who work here are the one's who saved his life. We truly care about him."


Chyna Recorded Sad Final Weeks ... For Documentary Film

5/14/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In the week before her death, Chyna recorded several videos of herself for a documentary that was supposed to be about her comeback ... instead, they show just how bad her situation really was. 

The videos show a clearly troubled and inebriated Chyna with a bloody gash and severe bruising on her right eye. 

0513_chyna_hit_tmz_wmWe spoke with film maker Rob Potylo who says Chyna insisted the wounds were from a random champagne bottle attack at a liquor store ... but he believes she was injured in a drunken fall and was too embarrassed to admit it. 

Potylo says he was extremely concerned when he saw the videos and got in touch with Chyna's attorney to discuss a plan of action to help her out.

In fact, Potylo says Chyn's team had reached out to WWE to help get her into rehab -- but they simply ran out of time. Chyna died as they were working out the details. 

Potylo says he now realizes the videos were cries for help -- and feels terrible that they weren't able to save her. 

"I love her and miss her dearly every day."

Justin Bieber Just a Regular Guy ... Slamming Shots in Boston Bars!!

Exclusive Details

If Justin Bieber's got beef with his fans, he didn't show it as he partied hard in a couple of Boston bars like any other 22-year-old ... who can afford round after round of shots.

After his Purpose concert Wednesday, Justin hit up Storyville nightclub and looked totally comfortable being the life of the party. He was up on the bar doing tequila shots, and didn't mind people taking photos. A rep from 6one7 Productions tells us he racked up about $2,400 worth of tequila and vodka.

Cool moment in the video -- the DJ bumping Justin ... Timberlake, that is.

Biebs started his night at The Tam ... a joint most locals call "a dive bar." We're told he drank Sam Adams, ordered shots of Fireball for a table of guys and girls and was "super nice" to everyone.

Even though his bodyguards made everyone put down their smartphones -- no "zoo animal" pics -- watch this video ... you can tell folks in The Tam treated JB like any other booze hound.    

Prince Operating Theory One Doctor, No Aliases

5/11/2016 8:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0511-prince-gettyPrince got Percocet from one doctor, who always prescribed the drug under the singer's real name ... sources connected with the investigation tell TMZ.

Our sources say ... so far there is no evidence anyone other than Dr. Michael Schulenberg prescribed drugs for Prince. What's more ... we're told the doctor never wrote prescriptions using a name other than Prince Rogers Nelson.

This is in sharp contrast to Michael Jackson's drug abuse ... we broke the story MJ had scripts written by multiple doctors, and for at least 19 aliases

Our sources caution there could be other doctors who prescribed meds for Prince outside the Minnesota area ... but so far nothing's come up.

It's an interesting turn, because the DEA monitors over-prescribing of drugs, yet we're told nothing had been flagged. It's evidence that Prince may have developed a sudden, life-threatening spike in opiate use, and it happened too quickly for the feds to notice.

As we reported, in addition to Prince's OD in Moline, Illinois 6 days before his death, he had gone to Walgreens to get prescriptions filled at least 4 times in the 7 days before his death. 

Prince Doctor Under Fire Mysteriously Left Practice Days Ago

5/11/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0510-prince-gettyThe doctor who law enforcement is targeting in the Prince investigation abruptly left the facility where he practiced ... and no one will say why.

Dr. Michael Schulenberg was at Paisley Park when Prince died, and as we reported, authorities obtained a search warrant to seize the doctor's medical records and, more specifically, prescriptions he wrote for the singer.   

As we previously reported, Dr. Schulenberg saw Prince on April 7th and April 20th -- the day before Prince died. He also wrote prescriptions for Prince that were to be filled at Walgreens ... the pharmacy Prince visited 4 times in the last 7 days of his life. 

Turns out ... Dr. Schulenberg worked at North Memorial Physicians clinic in Minnetonka, Minnesota. The facility is 10 miles from Prince's estate. A rep from the facility told TMZ ... the doctor left "in the last few days" but would not say if he was terminated or just quit. 

Before Dr. Schulenberg worked at North Memorial, we're told he practiced at Ridgeview Hospital and Prince's bodyguard told cops he took Prince to that hospital in 2014 and 2015.  

Dr. Schulenberg has a clean record, and even got an MBA in addition to his MD. 

Prince Anna Fantastic ... 'He Doesn't Deserve This'

5/11/2016 6:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Prince's ex-girlfriend, Anna Fantastic, is heartsick ... and not just over the fact that the singer died.

We got Anna Wednesday outside Mr Chow in Bev Hills, and she was adamant ... she never saw him use drugs while she was with him in the '80s.

She went on to say "He doesn't deserve this." It's unclear what she means, but it sounds like she's saying she has a big problem with the media reporting Prince was a drug abuser.

TMZ broke the story ... Prince had a severe Percocet addiction before he died. We're also told by people who were in his life in the '80s and onward that drugs were definitely a part of Prince's life.

Exclusive Details

0508-prince-getty-02The DEA is currently at Prince's Paisley Park home, executing a search warrant, and TMZ has learned there is an active federal investigation into doctors who prescribed meds to Prince ... sources connected with the investigation tell TMZ.

Our sources say the feds are conducting the probe under a series of federal laws targeting doctors who sell prescriptions to drug abusers. Our sources say this is precisely the reason for the investigation.

The laws also outlaw doctors and pharmacies who falsify record or forge prescriptions.

Our law enforcement sources tell us ... there's an additional element ... crossing state lines to violate prescription laws.  Our sources say the feds are also looking at the son of the rehab doctor who flew to Minnesota with a backpack full of synthetic opiates. The son, Andrew Kornfeld, was at Prince's home when he died. We're told Andrew is under the federal microscope.

Breaking News

0508-prince-getty-06A doctor who treated Prince, wrote him prescriptions and was present at Paisley Park when the singer died has mysteriously left the medical center where he worked.

Cops obtained a search warrant for North Memorial Medical Center where Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg worked. The warrant asks for all medical records, documents, reports, charts, photos, prescriptions, doctor's notes and medical notes for Prince Rogers Nelson. 

According to the warrant, cops interviewed Dr. Schulenberg, who acknowledged he treated Prince twice in April ... the last time the day before he died. The doctor told cops he ran tests on the singer and he was at Paisley Park the day Prince died to drop off the test results.

The doctor also told cops he prescribed medications for Prince, which were supposed to be filled at Walgreens.

TMZ broke the story ... Prince had gone to Walgreens 4 times in the week preceding his death. The warrant mentions the plane trip where Prince OD'd 6 days before his death. We broke the story about the emergency landing and that the drug was Percocet.

We've learned Dr. Schulenberg has disappeared from the roster at North Memorial ... he no longer works there. It's unclear why.

5/10/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0509_action_bronson_skull_bongAction Bronson just added the "Mona Lisa" of water pipes to his collection and he dropped a ton of cash to get it.

Art dealer Marcel Soufan -- who also owns a Tampa smoke shop -- says Action's collection is major. He delivered a Japanese SLOP glass pipe to the rapper just last week ... and estimates Action has stockpiled about $50k worth of super fancy bongs. 

Hey, some people collect stamps, Action has high-priced smoking devices.

At least his collection's functional.
