Lamar Odom I'm Here to Help People ... With My Weed

4/21/2018 1:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lamar Odom's new lease on life since coming out of a coma has made him want to improve other people's lives too ... enter his cannabis company.

We got the former NBA Champion at Five Star Juice in Torrance, CA Friday and talked to him about the release of his brand of marijuana products, called Rich Soil, which he believes can help people with their ailments ... like it's helped him.

Odom says his goal to get people "healthy high," saying ... "I want to get people better, bro. If I can get 'em high, I can get 'em better."

He tells us he's been working on the cannabis idea for a year, and doesn't give a damn about haters who think he shouldn't be in this business ... because he believes he's living proof the stuff works.

Lamar also touches on making a basketball comeback, which he told us about a couple days ago too.

Unclear how snacking on Starburst fits into his plan.

Prince Deadly Gamble with Counterfeit Pills Laced with Multiple Drugs

4/20/2018 2:21 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Fentanyl wasn't the only drug found in Prince's stash of counterfeit Vicodin pills -- in fact, they were laced with so many drugs ... there's no way he could have known exactly what he was taking when he popped one.

According to law enforcement, hundreds of the fake pills stamped "Watson 853" -- a brand of Vicodin -- were found around Paisley Park in several different non-prescription bottles. The pills were in over-the-counter bottles, such as Bayer, Aleve, and Target brand Vitamin C instead.

All of the pills were tested, and the results were a total mixed bag. Within in one bottle, some pills tested positive for lidocaine, some for fentanyl, some for lidocaine and fentanyl. Still others contained a combination of hydrocodone (generic Vicodin) and synthetic lidocaine.

Point is, almost none was actually Vicodin, and they appeared to contain almost a random cocktail of drugs -- even though they all looked exactly the same on the outside.

Carver County Prosecutor Mark Metz said Thursday it was likely Prince had no idea he was taking the fatal dose of fentanyl. Based on the lab results ... it seems impossible anyone taking those pills could know.

Prince Cops Release Video of Death Scene ... Pics Inside His Vault

4/19/2018 2:51 PM PDT
Breaking News

Cops just released video shot inside Prince's home the day they found him dead.

The Carver County Sheriff's Dept. is releasing all the records from its investigation on the heels of the County prosecutor announcing there will be no criminal charges in Prince's death. Those records include the videos and photos shot all over Paisley Park on April 21, 2016.

As we've reported, Prince was found lying on his back in front of an elevator door in the home. We've chosen not to show the image of his body.

The rest of the video gives you the point of view cops had as they entered the room where he was found. Dozens of Prince's records are on the walls in an extremely bright room. 

There also photos inside his legendary vault showing recordings, large sums of cash and recording equipment stacked on shelves.

One pic shows a white powdery substance spilled out on a table with a bent spoon placed next to it. Looks ominous, however the spoon and cherry appear to be a replica of a Minnesota art piece.

There were 2 patches on Prince's body -- one on his leg, and one on his arm ... and we're told they were placed there by emergency responders when they attempted to revive him.

The files also include a video of Prince from April 20 ... as he walked into the office of Dr. Michael Schulenberg. As we reported, prosecutors say Dr. Schulenberg had written a Percocet prescription for Prince, but they don't believe it played a role in his death.

Sinead O'Connor told police Prince was a violent man who flew into drug-fueled rages against women, including herself.

Eleven days after Prince overdosed, Sinead was interviewed over the phone by Carver County Sheriff's investigators ... who have just released audio of that conversation, and she says Prince commonly "used hard drugs."

Sinead said, "I know this because I spent time with the man." She recalls it wasn't a pleasant experience, and claimed Prince "had been violent to a number of women in his life" ... some of whom she claims had to be hospitalized.

She also claimed Prince told her the real reason he didn't want to release his famous "Black Album" was because he'd taken drugs, and had a vision of God ... who told him to shelve the project.

Prince's Death No Criminal Charges Investigators Can't Find Fentanyl Source

4/19/2018 9:16 AM PDT
Breaking News

Prince likely had NO idea he was even taking the fentanyl that ended up killing him, according to prosecutors who have found no one to criminally charge for his death.

Carver County Attorney Mark Metz said Prince had taken counterfeit Vicodin that was laced with fentanyl. He said they could not find sufficient evidence of who supplied the counterfeit pills, and as a result ... there will be no criminal charges in his death. 

As we reported, a toxicology report showed Prince had "exceedingly high" levels of the opioid in his system when he died -- even for a chronic pain patient.

Metz added it was likely Prince had also taken one of the counterfeit Vicodin when he overdosed on a private jet the week before he died. TMZ broke the story ... Prince made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois, where emergency responders gave him 2 shots of Narcan to save his life.

Metz said Prince had been prescribed Percocet by Dr. Michael Schulenberg days before he overdosed, but says it played no role in his death. TMZ obtained a photo of Prince pacing outside a Walgreens the day before he died, waiting for a prescription to be filled.

Schulenberg had prescribed the Percocet to Prince's bodyguard, Kirk Johnson, as a cover for Prince. The federal government went after Schulenberg for that violation, and he just reached a settlement ... agreeing to pay a $30k fine. 

Prince died at 57 at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota on April 21, 2016. 

Ireland Baldwin No Weed to Wait ... Everyday is 4/20!!!

4/19/2018 6:51 AM PDT

Warning: watching this Ireland Baldwin video will induce strong urges to smoke marijuana. The Surgeon General recommends not operating anything heavier than a Funyuns bag or Pringles canister afterward.

Yep, Ireland's decided 4/20 is for amateurs ... she's lighting up now!

The model slipped into some barely-there lingerie to twist a blunt and light it up -- and you can tell, this ain't her first rodeo.

We're ganja go out on a limb, and say Ireland is single-handedly (okay, she used 2 hands) trying to swing any upcoming state elections on legalization.

Remember to vote!

Canelo Alvarez Suspended 6 Months for PED's

4/18/2018 9:25 AM PDT
Breaking News

Canelo Alvarez just got slapped with a 6-month suspension for his failed performance enhancing drug test that he blamed on tainted meat ... the Nevada Athletic Commission just announced at a hearing in Vegas.

The commission only took minutes to deliberate on Alvarez's case ... ultimately giving him half of a maximum 1-year ban, noting that he's been "cooperative with investigators."

Canelo's May 5 rematch with Gennady Golovkin has already been scrapped ... but, this opens the door for Alvarez vs. Golovkin 2 to happen in September -- a time frame GGG previously told TMZ Sports he's gunnin' for

As we previously reported ... Canelo got popped for the PED Clenbuterol in March from a test administered on Feb. 17. Because his ban is retroactive to the date of the test, Alvarez is eligible to fight as soon as Aug. 18. 

Canelo has maintained his innocence throughout the process ... blaming Mexican beef for pumping 'roids into his veins.

FYI, GGG just announced Canelo's replacement for their May 5 fight -- he's facing Armenian-American boxer Vanes Martirosyan.

Dwayne Johnson Try My New Tequila And Mix It On The Rock(s)!!

4/18/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dwayne Johnson's finally got an answer to what The Rock is cooking ... tequila!!

Dwayne's company filed docs -- and obtained by TMZ -- to lock down the name "Mana" and slap it on tequila bottles. It pays to be in the tequila biz. Just ask these guys.

Dwayne's professed his love for the Mexican liquor in the past ... saying when it comes to booze on cheat days, his preferred spirit is tequila.

And speaking of spirit ... it's what "Mana" means in the Polynesian culture Dwayne grew up in. "Mana" is richly embedded in Dwayne's life, even in his tattoos. The gigantic bull tattoo on his arm, Dwayne says, epitomizes the term. He broke down its symbolism in an August 2017 post.

Dwayne included #TheMana in that post, but here's how he ended it -- #NowLetsBreakOutTheTequila.

Ditto!

Evolution of the bull. Blood, sweat & years. After 3 sessions and 22hrs of tattooing with world renowned @NikkoHurtado, the story's almost done.. Every detail is a reflection of my own personal history. From the cracks and heavy damage in the bone representing life's hard lessons I've learned over the years. Just like scars and wrinkles - I'm so grateful to have 'em because they're earned. To the horns, not pointing up or out to the side, but pointing straight ahead representing relentless energy and forward progress. The core and anchor of this image is in the eye. Look closely and you'll find the life, energy, power and you'll feel the MANA (spirit). The eye tells the story of a disruptive positive energy always ready to dent the universe. Depending on the light and angle, sometimes the energy's subtle and sometimes it's glaring. But it's always alive and ready to disrupt the universe and love and protect my family and all things I love with intense passion and gratitude. Cheers to living, learning, evolving and growing. And to the positive disrupters ready to dent the universe. #EvolutionOfTheBull #TheDisrupter #TheMana #NowLetsBreakOutTheTequila

FSU QB Deondre Francois Busted for Weed ... Blames GF

4/17/2018 12:27 PM PDT
Breaking News

More trouble for Florida State QB Deondre Francois -- who was just busted for weed in Tallahassee ... and immediately tried to throw his GF under the bus. 

According to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, cops raided Francois' home on April 12 over a tip he may have been dealing marijuana. 

Cops say Francois' girlfriend, Diamond Simone Lindsey, was in the house at the time of the search -- and if you recognize that name, it's because she's the same person who accused the QB of domestic violence back in January. 

Francois was detained while cops searched the place -- but they ultimately determined there wasn't enough evidence to prove he was slangin'. 

Cops did however find 17 grams of "cannabis/tobacco mixture" and "items of drug paraphernalia" on the premises and asked Francois for an explanation. 

Francois -- being the quality BF he is -- tried to pin the whole thing on Lindsey. 

"Francois attempted to minimize his culpability by saying that he 'can't smoke right now' and saying that the cannabis belonged to [Lindsey]."

Cops ultimately didn't buy it and cited Francois for possession. FSU coach Willie Taggart says he's met with Deondre and is handling the matter internally. 

As for the domestic violence case from January ... the investigation was later dropped and no charges were ever filed. 

Casey Anthony Solo Drinkin' at Irish Pub ... Chats Up Local Barflies!

4/16/2018 11:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If you've never heard the one about Casey Anthony walking into a bar by herself, buckle up ... 'cause it's a real knee-slapper.

Casey was drinking for one on Sunday at O'Shea's Irish Pub in West Palm Beach, FL right around happy hour time ... and oh, what a happy time she was having with the regulars.

In video obtained by TMZ, you see Casey trying to have a convo with a few dudes there -- we say trying, 'cause it mostly sounded like drunken gibberish ... with an Irish twist. Either way, it's clear Casey enjoyed herself for the hour or so she was there, even solo.

Unclear exactly what she was drinking, but it looks like a light brew to us -- maybe a Stella. 

As we've reported, Casey's been living the good life in the years since she was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony, back in 2011 ... mulling over having more kids, babysitting, and hitting up happy hour in the Sunshine State.

Just another day in the life of World's Best Mom. 

Victoria's Secret Angel Taylor Hill Carried Off Coachella Grounds ... Totally Out of It

4/15/2018 10:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Victoria's Secret Angel Taylor Hill might have had a little too much fun for Day 2 of Coachella, 'cause she had to be carried out by a group of friends by the end of it.

We got the model Saturday heading into the Empire Polo Club for round two of the festivities, where she was trying to be incognito -- but appeared perked up and fully engaged with our camera guy ... making her love for Beyonce loud and clear. 

Then we saw her again as she was leaving with the same group of friends -- only this time she was being held up as her head was hanging and she stumbled to the car. 

It sounds like an ambulance was being considered briefly, but her pals ended up getting her into the car safely where she appeared to be conscious and okay.

Cardi B at Coachella Booze for My Crew ... Sweet Smell of Success For Me

4/15/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

When Cardi B performs the biggest show of her life at Coachella, her pregnancy won't make the scene backstage any less of a rager ... at least for her entourage.

We got a hold of Cardi's rider and it's stocked, at first glance, with several things a pregnant woman shouldn't be consuming ... but also several preggo-friendly options. Here are some highlights:

- 6 dozen white roses
- Degree spray deodorant
- Gillette razors
- Grilled/fried chicken
- Caesar salad
- Roasted vegetables
- 2 bottles of D'usse
- 2 bottles of Hennessy
- 1 Bottle of 1942 tequila
- 20 bottles of water
- Red Bull
- Fresh coffee

We're told Cardi, who is due the first week of July, will obviously not be indulging in the booze ... ditto for Red Bull and coffee. All that stuff is for her hard-working team.

The roses are 100 percent for the boss lady, though. Let's face it, Cardi's getting used to that sweet smell of success
