Dennis Rodman

Reeks of Booze at Car Wash

Cops Called

8/2/2015 12:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0802-dennis-rodman-carwash-TMZ-01update_graphic_red_bar1:55 PM PST -- A rep for Dennis Rodman tells TMZ, Dennis had no intention of getting behind the wheel and his girlfriend drove to and from the carwash.

update_grey_gray_barFormer NBA star Dennis Rodman was wasted at a carwash Sunday morning in the O.C. ... at least according to several eyewitnesses, and it was bad enough that the cops were called ... TMZ Sports has learned.

It happened at a Costa Mesa car wash ...  several people came in close contact with him -- including employees -- say he smelled of alcohol and was acting weird.  We're told he walked up to a man and put his hand on his shoulder and said, "Hey white guy."  And they say he walked up to several girls, telling them they were hot and they should check out his boat in Newport.

Cops were called because people were concerned he might get behind the wheel after his car got spiffed up.  We're told the cops informed Rodman he could not drive away, and that's when a woman came up and offered to drive him home.  We're told Dennis obliged.

If Rodman was drinking he caught a break.  Even if it's common sense he drove to the car wash, cops can't arrest for misdemeanor DUI unless they see him behind the wheel.

Kelly Price

Cops Need To Take A Hard Look At Nick Gordon

8/2/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kelly Price, one of Whitney Houston’s longtime pals and collaborator on the Grammy-nominated “Heartbreak Hotel,” thinks Nick Gordon is worthy of suspect status in Bobbi Kristina's death.

Price was at LAX on her way to BK’s funeral, or rather “home going” -- she explains it in the video – when our photog asked her thoughts on Nick's possible involvement.

Price was extremely tight with Bobbi Kristina and her late mom … Whitney’s last performance was at Price’s annual pre-Grammy bash. 

Price wants closure for BK, but has her own idea on how investigators should handle it.

JTG says he was a huge Piper fan from the first time he met the legend at Wrestlemania ... and says the guy was ALWAYS a warm, welcoming dude that would greet people with hugs and kisses.

As for the statue, it's just an idea for now ... but with how beloved Piper was -- ya gotta think, it's not out of the question.

Leolah Brown

Booted from Bobbi Kristina's Funeral

8/1/2015 9:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bobbi Kristina's funeral was interrupted Saturday morning by an outburst from Leolah Brown, Bobbi's aunt, who was swiftly removed from the church with the help of Tyler Perry.

An eyewitness tells TMZ, Pat Houston was getting ready to speak when Leolah began screaming, "Pat you know you are wrong for this!"

We're told security descended on Leolah and escorted her out. Tyler Perry followed to help diffuse the situation.

Leolah spoke with photogs outside of the service and made one thing clear ... she says Pat Houston will be haunted by the ghost of Whitney.

We're told Nick Gordon was not at the service. 

As we reported, the Browns and Houstons are feuding again. Several members of Brown's family are upset that Pat Houston has solicited funds instead of flowers for her charity.

Bobbi Kristina Funeral

Brown Family Suspicious

Houstons Will Sneak Pic of Body

8/1/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0202-bobbi-kristina-instagram-6Bobbi Kristina’s funeral will be yet another family face-off -- the Browns are on high alert and worried the Houstons will sneak a photo of her dead body ... and sell it.

Sources close to the Browns tell TMZ ... they fear a repeat of what happened when Whitney Houston was laid to rest in 2012 ... when a photo of her body, in her casket, was snapped and ended up on the cover of a magazine. 

Since the Brown family was persona non grata at the funeral ... they believe someone from the Houston side was behind it.

Our sources say the Brown family plans to band together and stand guard ... and their eyes will be trained on the Houston family.

Pat Houston is managing the funeral, so it has all the makings of turning real ugly, real fast.

EXCLUSIVE

0801-meek-taker-wwe-tmz-getty-01Meek Mill can't get a break this week ... after getting trashed for his tepid Drake diss song, he's now in the crosshairs of of The Undertaker over the wrestler's famous ring entrance song.

Meek sampled The Taker's signature bells in the diss track, and the WWE is not amused.  A spokesperson tells TMZ, "WWE takes its intellectual property rights very seriously, and we're looking into the matter."

The timing is sure bad ... the WWE is in no mood for clowning, given the tragic death of Rowdy Roddy Piper.

The daughter of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and hubby Marc Mezvinsky showed up Friday night at Madison Square Garden, and she flashed a faint smile as guards looked for contraband.

It's even more amusing because Chelsea was also there with Eve Hewson, Bono's daughter.

Everyone's created equal at U2 concerts.

'Vanderpump Rules' Jax Taylor

Blabs About Hawaiian Sunglasses Arrest

8/1/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jax Taylor from "Vanderpump Rules" should exercise his right to remain silent, because he's a little too loose lipped for his own good following his arrest in Hawaii.

Our photog spotted the reality star with co-star Kristen Doute, who tried to get him to shut up, to no avail. Jax suggests he did not steal from the sunglasses store last month, but the surveillance video seems to tell a very different story.

Jax was arrested for felony theft ... expensive shades.

Fetty Wap

Olive Garden

Is Lucky I Paid Anything

8/1/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0731-fetty-wap-olive-garden-GETTY-901Fetty Wap was like, "Hey, what's up? Hello," at an Olive Garden Thursday night ... and then he bolted without paying the bill.

Fetty was dining with a group of friends at the famous franchise in Wayne, NJ when he stormed out of the restaurant.  

We're told he threw down $100 for the apps and drinks, but by the time he left, the bill swelled to $160 ... possibly leaving the server on the hook for $60.

Fetty says he was there for 2 hours and the service was so slow his food never came, so he said "arrivederci."

But Olive Garden employees say he was there for only 30 minutes and it was a simple case of dining and dashing. 

Happy ending ... the server didn't have to pay.

We couldn't reach Fetty for comment.
