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.

Taylor Swift's security team sprung into action when a man showed up on her NYC doorstep Tuesday evening ... TMZ has learned.

Taylor's guards detained the unidentified man, and someone called 911. NYPD and NYFD responded to Swift's Tribeca home around 6 PM and described the man as "disoriented" as he was handcuffed.

From the video, it appears he had a duffel bag ... which police searched. Law enforcement sources described him as "emotionally disturbed," and he was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Taylor was not home. It's unclear if he made any threats or actually gained access to her crib.

So far, he hasn't been booked for any crime.

A similar scene played out in February at Taylor's L.A. homes, where 2 men were arrested.

Stitches is apologizing -- sort of -- for punching one of his fans, and even going all out to make things right with the guy.

The swift response came after Stitches said he realized the fan, at Voltage Lounge in Philly, meant no harm -- he reached up and slapped Stitches in the stomach. The rapper got pissed and struck back with a left hook.

Cashius Clay (for real), Stitches' manager, tells TMZ the rapper knows he was in the wrong, but adds Stitches reacted how anyone else would have -- especially after someone pulled a gun during a recent gig in Canada.

Stitches already reached out to the fan on FaceTime, and hooked him up with tix to an upcoming show in Miami. We suggest he keep his hands to himself this time.

Back in 2010, Prince purchased a 10,000 square foot fortress on the island of Providenciales in Turks and Caicos. Asking price ... $12 million!

The 10 bedroom and 10 bathroom mansion comes with a tennis court, 200 foot boat dock and its own private white sand beach. 

Robert Greenwood of Christie's International Real Estate tells us Prince had not fully moved in -- it's sparsely furnished. There's actually a few items in the house from the "Purple Rain" movie, including a mirror and a few chairs.

BTW ... the first thing Prince did when he bought the place ... painted the driveway purple!

Exclusive Details

Justin Bieber had to regulate on Desiigner in the packed 1 OAK nightclub when the rapper's performance spilled into the VIP section ... TMZ has learned.

Sources in the NYC hot spot tell us 19-year-old Desiigner -- recently signed to Kanye West's label -- was putting on a hell of a show Thursday night, and Justin was watching from the VIP area.

We're told it was all good until Desiigner got "a little too hyped" ... started jumping around and "stomped" multiple times on Justin's feet. That's when JB flexed on him.

We're told Desiigner immediately turned around and said "My bad."

As for social media buzz the rapper got kicked out -- not true. We're told Desiigner finished his set. He was only escorted out because he's under 21, and has to leave once he's done performing.

Kentucky Derby Thoroughbred Owes It All To Tiger Woods' #1 Mistress

0505-suddenbreakingnews-getty-tmz-01Tiger Woods could be a player in this year's Kentucky Derby if a horse named Suddenbreakingnews manages to win, place or show.

Experts say the 3-year-old thoroughbred has an outside shot at taking it all on Saturday -- and if he does, get ready to hear the name Rachel Uchitel, repeatedly. Turns out a mare named Uchitel birthed Suddenbreakingnews.

Sbn is currently at 20-1 odds -- kinda middle of the pack -- to win, and has already overcome 2 big hurdles ... his balls. Or lack thereof.

Kitty Taylor -- who brokered the $72,000 sale of Suddenbreakingnews -- says the horse is a gelding ... meaning his testicles were removed, since they never dropped. We're told it's really rare for a gelding to make it as far as the Derby.

Taylor adds, "Perhaps Tiger should have been gelded at some point."

We know where Elin Nordegren's NOT putting her money. 

Prince DEA Investigating Drugs Front and Center

5/4/2016 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

502-prince-getty-03The Federal Drug Enforcement Administration is now involved in the death investigation of Prince, and our law enforcement sources say drugs are the focal point of the criminal probe.

Our sources say the DEA and the Minnesota Attorney General are looking into the various prescriptions that were written for Prince, and the focus is opiates. Prince had a life-threatening Percocet addiction and authorities believe opiates will likely be either the sole or at least a significant factor in his death.

Our sources say the investigation is sweeping ... doctors and pharmacies involved in prescribing and filling meds for Prince are targeted, but possible enablers are also in the crosshairs.

Our sources now say the toxicology report may still be weeks away, although it was initially set to be released 2 weeks after the autopsy.  

We know at least one doctor was a friend of the singer, but we're told the investigation is much broader. 

50 Cent Autistic Airport Worker Lawyers Up Wants $1 Mil For Bullying

Exclusive Details


50 Cent has new legal trouble after taunting a 19-year-old man who turned out to be autistic -- TMZ has learned his family is strongly considering a lawsuit.

Andrew Farrell was just doing his job as a janitor at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky airport when 50 Cent appeared to randomly single him out on video ... accusing him of being high at work. Fiddy posted the video on Twitter.

Ken Kramer, Andrew's stepdad, tells us Andrew suffers from autism and Asperger's syndrome. He also has a hearing condition which forces him to wear a hearing aid.

Ken says Andrew has never smoked or had a sip of alcohol in his life. He says Andrew has severe social anxiety, and that's why he ignored 50 -- he also doesn't know who the rapper is.

Ken says the family has lawyered up, and the only thing stopping them from suing immediately is concern about stiff attorney fees. He says they'd be willing to forget the whole thing, IF 50 Cent donates $1 million to Andrew's GoFundMe page, and makes a face-to-face apology.

They might want to research 50's finances. 

Dennis Rodman Thanked By Ex-N. Korean Prisoner ... Your Rant Helped Save Me

Exclusive Details

The U.S. citizen who was held captive in North Korea for 735 days is THANKING Dennis Rodman for helping him get free ... saying The Worm was "the catalyst for my release."

It's shocking considering Rodman famously went on CNN and BACKED UP the case to keep Kenneth Bae in prison -- despite the fact Dennis (or anyone else for that matter) knew why Bae was being held in the first place. 

Still, Bae -- who was released in 2014 -- broke his silence about his captivity to CNN ... and said he couldn't be more grateful to Rodman. 

"If I meet him someday, I just want to say thank you for what he has done." 

Bae said Rodman brought international attention to his plight -- which put pressure on North Korea to set him free. 

Bae also said Rodman called his family after the famous rant and apologized. He considered it a "sincere apology."

Rodman's rep, Darren Prince, tells TMZ Sports ... "Dennis is extremely happy that something so positive came out of his trips to Korea and was very appreciate that Kenneth Bae thanked him today."

"He's hoping his 4 historic trips to North Korea eventually opens doors for peace and happiness for all."
