Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Helps Save 'The Rock' ... Doggie Version

11/25/2015 3:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


A very sick pooch named Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is going to get a life-saving heart operation in the nick of time thanks to his namesake.

Dwayne, the dog, was all fur and bones with his mouth wired shut when L.A. shelter SPOT! found him. Turns out, Dwayne has a grade 6 heart murmur that requires a $4,500 surgery.

Someone started a GoFundMe page for the patient, and the two-legged Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson got wind of it. The actor has a real soft spot for dogs, and dropped $1,500 toward the $5k goal.

The Rock's not the only celeb to open his wallet ... we're told 'Real World' and "Hangover 2" star Jamie Chung donated $600 for a heart echo and x-rays.

As of now, the little guy's about $365 shy of the goal. The shelter plans on putting any extra cash it raises towards surgeries for other sick and injured dogs.

1124-bieber-tmz-01Justin Bieber is totally spent -- emotionally and mentally -- and as a result he's pulling the plug on some big time appearances to promote his album.

Sources in Bieber's world tell us he's been on a virtual roller coaster -- with his moods swinging like a pendulum, and it's just become too much. We're told he's dealing with "personal issues," but it is NOT related to drugs or alcohol.

Justin cancelled his 'Late Show with Stephen Colbert' appearance, scheduled for tonight.

He was also supposed to tape a performance Tuesday evening to air during the Thanksgiving Day Parade on CBS -- but Justin's backed out of that too.

We got Justin and Corey Gamble in Bev Hills on Monday afternoon, and he already seemed to be on a down swing.

Exclusive Details

The old Johnny Manziel is back ... and that's not necessarily a good thing.  

TMZ Sports has obtained footage of the Cleveland Browns quarterback raging at a nightclub in Austin, TX on Friday night with a bottle of Dom in his hand ... the second night of a back-to-back bender. 

Multiple sources tell us ... Manziel started off his bye week festivities at RIO Rooftop nightclub in Austin on Thursday night ... where witnesses say he partied and boozed with friends all night long. 

The next night, he hit up Summit -- where he grabbed champagne and kept the party rolling.  Witnesses tell us the bottle wasn't just a prop ... he was boozing there too. 

Sources tell us ... Manziel didn't get into any trouble -- but it's concerning considering Johnny entered treatment earlier this year for an undisclosed issue in the wake of some heavy partying. 

In fact, when he got out of treatment ... Johnny swore he was a changed man. 

By the way, before the bye week ... Johnny told the media he was going to spend his days off relaxing "like everybody else in the locker room."

He also said he was not going to do anything that would "be a distraction to this team or be an embarrassment to the organization."

1123-corey-white-dallas-cowboys-gettyEx-Dallas Cowboys cornerback Corey White tells TMZ Sports ... the reports that he was cut for not wearing a suit on a travel day are TRUE -- though he says, "I was wearing slacks and a button down."

White, along with running back Christine Michael, got the ax last week -- with the Dallas Morning News claiming it was all because they broke team rules by not wearing a full suit to a road game. 

"I'm not angry," White tells us ... "It's the rules."

White says he thought his outfit would be acceptable -- "I tried to dress like a pro."

White says after he was cut, one of the coaches on the team told him it was specifically because of the dress code violation ... "It was about what I wore."

As for his future, White says he's hopeful he'll get picked up by another team -- and next time, he'll make sure to invest in a suit.
