Prince George Lopez Helps Family with Big Bucks

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

0430-prince-lopez-getty-tmz-01Prince's family has a guardian angel ... who goes by the name George Lopez, because we've learned the comedian has fronted money to the family the singer left behind.

Turns out ... George was tight with Prince, and he learned all of the assets in the estate have been frozen until a judge determines how much the administrator can give family members for living expenses. Prince was generous with his family, giving them money and even homes during his life.

Some of the singer's siblings are now cash strapped because they've been temporarily cut off, and we've learned George has advanced them $20k to cover living and travel expenses and that figure could go up.

We're told George did it all anonymously ... not wanting any fanfare or adulation.

Good job, Lopez.

Nipsey Hussle Spell My Name Right Or There's No Show

5/1/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429_nipsy_hussle_compositeNipsey Hussle has his priorities when he performs, caring way more about credit than booze.

We got hold of the rapper's rider from an Atlanta gig. Money is at the top of the list -- payment in crisp $100 bills ... we're told 250 of them. Next in line is promotion -- "All advertisements MUST use the proper spelling and correct pronunciation." 

Nipsey also won't play to an empty house ... he'll only go onstage if the venue's at 25% capacity, minimum. 

The rapper's pretty easy to please in the food and beverage dept -- 2 bottles of Moet -- although he does demand Polo crewnecks at his ready disposal. 

Now that's some sweet fashion hustle.

EXCLUSIVE

Heads up ... there's a lot of genital talk in this video ...

John Salley has some "pointers" for Usher about how to take a world class ... Internet-breaking ... truly inspiring and memorable ... picture of your penis.

Usher "inadvertently" showed his little guy on Snapchat Thursday ... posting a nude snap with a smiley face covering his happy place ... but leaving a little bit left over to say hi.

We asked John about this man-sized malfunction when we got him out at LAX -- 'cause he's sorta like an expert -- and he gives us the lowdown on proper penis pic etiquette.

Take notes, fellas ...

Wiz Khalifa My Favorite Beer is High Life Adjacent

5/1/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0427-wiz-khalifa-tmz-khalifa-kush-01Wiz Khalifa doesn't always drink beer -- he's more of a smoker -- but when he does he likes his brew infused with hemp.  

Yeah, Khalifa is gearing up to launch his own line of beer, juice, carbonated juice, energy drinks, and non-alcoholic cocktails ... all infused with the hemp plant. 

According to the trademark docs Wiz filed he wants to sell the drinks under his "Khalifa Kush" handle ... which is also the brand he uses to push his strains of weed.

Bad news though if you're looking for a liquid high -- even though hemp looks like weed, the THC levels are too low to produce a strong buzz. 

Good news for the Beyhive -- Wiz is also making a hemp-laced lemonade. Becky not included.

Circle Jerks Drummer Flipping Funded My New Punk Rock Crib

5/1/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-lucky-lehrer-house-FACEBOOK-MLS-01Iconic punk drummer Keith "Lucky" Lehrer has scored a new home in the Hollywood Hills just a few blocks from his former palace. Asking price ... nearly $2 million!  

Lucky's new 2,417 square foot home has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, hardwood and stone floors ... and opens up to amazing city views. Josh Altman repped the Circle Jerks' drummer. The seller was repped by Jane Schore and Lauren Biedenharn. 

He had plenty of dough for the purchase after flipping a different Hollywood Hills home back in March. Lucky walked away with $6.8 mil from that deal.

Punk rocker by night. Budding real estate mogul by day.

Ryan Sheckler Sued You Sold Me a Bum House

5/1/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

429-ryan-sheckler-instagramRyan Sheckler and his family are being sued for almost a million bucks for allegedly screwing over the guy who bought their house.

The San Clemente crib went for $1.5 mil, and the buyer expected it to be in tip-top condition -- far from it, he says. According to the lawsuit, the kitchen appliances and entertainment system were shot, and the latter alone will cost $75k to fix.

But there's more. The buyer says the roof leaks like a sieve ... something that became painfully apparent after the grand entrance of El Nino.

The buyer wants $850k ... partly to cover his losses and partly to teach the Sheckler family a lesson.

Prince Traveled Miles For Prescription Pill Addiction

4/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

429-paisley-park-3Prince passed up at least 8 pharmacies close to Paisley Park on his way to pick up prescription pills hours before his death ... and it could all have been to hide a paper trail of multiple prescriptions.

As TMZ reported ... Prince visited Walgreens chain drugstores 4 times in the week leading up to his death. However, the location the singer visited the night before his death was 6 miles from home. An odd choice considering there were several other pharmacies located just over a mile from his house.

Although it's unclear exactly why Prince traveled so far ... family members tell TMZ they were worried the singer was using multiple doctors and aliases. Most pharmacies will throw up a red flag if a patient visits too often ... so by visiting multiple locations in his area, the singer could have flown under the radar.

In fact, the Walgreens Prince was photographed at the night before his death is the same one that's 6 miles away in Minnetonka.

Chyna Mixed Pill Bottles Throw Wrench In Death Investigation

4/30/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429-chyna-tmz-02Detectives in Chyna's death are dealing with a curve ball -- the ex WWE superstar had a knack for mixing up prescription pills, and it's making it hard to figure out what she took before she died.  

Sources close to the investigation tell TMZ detectives discovered several full prescription pill bottles near Chyna's body ... many of which contained multiple meds. We're told there were at least 4 different types of pills, plus she also mixed vitamins in the bottles.

As TMZ reported, Chyna's manager worried she had a problem with Ambien and Valium, but it appears she was taking more than just that.

Our sources say the mixing means investigators will have to wait until the toxicology report is complete to figure out what she ingested.

Brandon Marshall Wake Up Raiders Vegas Is Dangerous for NFL Players

4/30/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Brandon Marshall thinks moving the Raiders to Sin City is a commitment to disaster ... saying Vegas will DESTROY young players who won't be able to resist unhealthy temptations. 

We got the NY Jets WR on Capitol Hill -- dude was doing more great work on mental health -- and asked what he thought of the Raiders possibly bolting NorCal for the desert of desire in Las Vegas.

Raiders owner Mark Davis has been vocal about his plans -- and some think it's just a matter of time before it really goes down.

Check out the clip -- Marshall says he doesn't think Vegas is a bad place ... but it's just too much for young people "fresh out of school with a lot of money."

Think about it ... how long would YOU last as a 21-year-old in Vegas with $20 mil in your bank account? 

Yeah, thought so.

N.W.A. 'Express Yourself' Banned at H.O.F. ... Says Funk Legend

4/30/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429-charles-wright-express-yourself-NWA-GETTY-01N.W.A. insulted funk music pioneer Charles Wright by offering him a measly $600 to sample his hit song "Express Yourself" for their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ... according to Wright.

Wright's rep Kimirhochelle Porter tells TMZ the singer felt totally disrespected by the lowball offer, since he usually gets around $600k for samples of his '70s hit. We're told Wright was also pissed because N.W.A. didn't invite him to the ceremony.

Wright -- frontman of the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band -- hasn't been inducted to the Hall himself. We're told he feels snubbed, and thinks N.W.A. should share the spotlight since his music played a big role in their success.

Porter says they're still trying to strike a deal, but tick-tock -- the ceremony airs Saturday night on HBO.

Lionel Richie Hello, Would You Like To Buy My Makeup?

4/30/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429-lionel-richie-makeup-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-01Lionel Richie wants you to stay pretty all night long -- and that appears to be the hook for the cosmetic line he wants to launch.

The singer launched his new business endeavor last week when his company filed a trademark for "Hello By Lionel Richie."

The copyright covers just about everything beauty related ... cosmetics, face masks, body glitter, bath beads, hair bows, nail polish, etc.

And there's a separate trademark for candles and candle accessories.

Hello ... way better than Brickhouse cosmetics. 

Starbucks Sued Again Easy On The Ice!! And Pay Us $5 Million

4/30/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428_starbucks_compositeStarbucks is shorting cold drink lovers by loading up on ice cubes, and one thirsty Illinois customer's so pissed about it ... she's filed a lawsuit.

The issue, according to docs ... is not getting the advertised amount of beverage. For example, a venti is supposed to be 24 ounces, but the suit says more often you get as little as 14 because "large pieces of ice take up more space."

It's hardly rocket science, but the slighted customer is seeking damages in excess of $5 million.

Starbucks says the lawsuit is absurd because ... "Our customers understand and expect that ice is an essential component of any 'iced' beverage." It says it will gladly remake any beverage for an unsatisfied customer.

Starbucks was also sued last month for hot beverages being grossly underfilled.
