Scott Stapp

Placed on Psych Hold

Fears ISIS Attack Against His Kid

11/28/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

frontman Scott Stapp was placed on a psych hold after cops say he had drug-fueled paranoid delusions he's a marked man, and his wife says he hears voices and worries his kid will get attacked by ISIS.

TMZ has obtained a Madison County Florida Sheriff's Dept. report which says deputies found Scott on the side of a road Nov. 13 and he appeared wasted, incoherent and rambling that someone was trying to poison him. Cops placed him on a 72-hour psych hold.

Jaclyn Stapp -- who filed for divorce last month -- then filed new legal docs claiming Scott is off the hinges, threatening to kill himself and his AA sponsor, and she says he has the wherewithal to do it ... he has guns.

According to the police report ... Jaclyn said Scott hears phantom voices and has visions of people on fire. She says he's also paranoid. He left a message with the dean of his kid's school on November 10, warning that the school was about to become the target of an ISIS attack.

As for why he's out of his head, Jaclyn says he's on a potentially fatal drug binge, fueled by steroids, weed, cocaine, PCP, Special K, Crystal meth, and various Rx drugs.

Stapp posted a desperate video Friday, saying he's broke, sometimes homeless and sometimes goes without food. Jaclyn says it's because he blows all of his money on drugs, and has resorted to pawning personal items to fuel his habit.

Jaclyn dismissed her petition Friday to lock Scott up ... we're told she's now talking to Scott and hopes she can accomplish her goal by communicating with him and convincing him he needs help.

The star of "Lilo & Stitch" is too hot for the Sunset Strip ... because her ass has just been rejected.

Daveigh Chase -- who was the voice of Lilo -- is the star of the upcoming movie, "Wild in Blue." We're told the flick is real sexy, and that's why it's being marketed with Daveigh's ass as its moniker.

Regency Outdoor Advertising owns one of the best billboards on the Strip ... right at Sunset and Doheny, a stone's throw from 1OAK, Bootsy Bellows and Boa.  

The folks at "Wild in Blue" offered the market price of $45K for the month of January to plaster her ass, but Regency balked because the image was just too risque.

We're told Regency suggested producers Photoshop "boy shorts" over the thong to make it more palatable. Ain't gonna happen.

The movie's marketers are looking for another billboard on the Strip, but so far no bites ... bites.

Snoop Dogg

I'd Kill Those Pot-Smoking Grannies

11/28/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

112614_snoop_dogg_launch_v2Snoop Dogg is scared he'd kill the grandmas who famously smoked weed for the first time.

Our photog spotted The Doggfather outside the Forum in Inglewood. Snoop's certain AARP members would go full flatline if they blaze with him.

But at least one of the old ladies takes issue. Paula (the dark haired one in the video) tells TMZ she'd love the chance to "twist one up with Snoop."

She prefers vaporizers and Snoop likes blunts, but Paula has a middle ground: "He is welcome in my kitchen any day. We can cook pot brownies. He’s too thin, I'll fatten him up if he comes over."

Just like a grandma ... always trying to feed you pot brownies.

1125_Zak_Bagans_Ghost_Adventures_House_launch"Ghost Adventures" star Zak Bagans fled his Las Vegas home years ago -- but now he's finally ready to sell the place for dirt cheap ... with one demonic catch.

According to real estate sources ... Zak is unloading his 4,700-square-foot Vegas townhouse -- complete with a chrome toilet, hidden dungeon behind a bookcase, and alleged paranormal activity. All that for $459,000.

Zak tells TMZ he bought the pad for $370K, but claims he ended up with a real demon for a roommate after bringing home a human skull ... for work purposes. 

1126-zak-bagans-skull-swipe-tmz-01He believes demonic forces yanked him outta bed and shoved his GF down a flight of stairs -- which might be the worst sales pitch ever. Instead of hiring an exorcist ... Zak says he got the hell out more than 2 years ago. 

Buyer beware ... unless you're into that kinda thing.

Bernard Hopkins

I'm Proud of Mickey Rourke

'Fighting Ain't About Age'

EXCLUSIVE

Mickey Rourke is getting major support from boxing legend Bernard Hopkins -- who tells TMZ Sports he's PROUD of the 62-year-old for getting back in the ring ... and thinks he has a real shot to win!

49-year-old Hopkins -- who says he's still open to fighting into his 50s -- says he commends Rourke for taking a fight with a 29-year-old fighter in Russia on November 28th.

"The only way you're gonna know what you're capable of is by challenging yourself," Hopkins says.

"Most people can't see themselves doing what I or Mickey have done. So they talk down to it. That's a motivation for me. And I'm sure it is for him."

So the question ... can Rourke actually win the fight? 

"I'm gonna go with the experienced guy [Rourke] who knows how to take care of himself," Hopkins says ... "It's not a slam dunk that he'll win, but at the least I think it's going to be a competitive fight."

As for Bernard's future in the ring -- he tells us, "I'm going to make a decision if I'll fight again after the holidays. But I do have an option with HBO."

He adds, "If I fight, it's not going to be a fight just to fight, it's going to be a fight that I could just as well lose if I'm not on my game. I want to push the envelope like I always have."

Devon Still's Baby Mama

I'm Not Trying to Ruin His Life

But I Need More Money

11/27/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1126-devon-still-and-family-FACEBOOK-01Devon Still's baby mama says there's NO court order requiring the Cincinnati Bengals player to pay child support for their cancer-stricken daughter Leah ... but says the two had a "voluntary agreement" which Devon stopped paying in July. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Channing Smythe who says the two had worked out an unofficial financial arrangement ... but it fell apart over the summer when Devon wanted Channing and Leah to move to Cincinnati to be near him. 

"I don’t feel that it was right for me to move her," Channing says ... "[Delaware] is where all her friends and family are and this is where we have been building our life. He was very upset about that and that’s when he stopped giving me money."

Channing says Devon has been paying for some of Leah's clothes, medical bills and other things -- and she's "grateful" for all of the help -- but says she needs more money from Devon due to Leah's medical condition which prevents her from working. 

Channing says she has started the paperwork to get court ordered child support in Delaware -- but so far, they have not reached an agreement. 

Channing tells us Devon is a "wonderful father" to Leah and visits her almost weekly -- and takes her to doctor's appointments whenever he can. 

As for Still, he issued a statement saying, "I am not going to retaliate against the mother of my daughter ... I am going to continue to allow the court system to handle this matter, as it has been doing these past couple of months."

1126_my_five_wives_thnksgiving_compositeNo way to sugarcoat it -- being a polygamist is expensive during the holidays -- but "My Five Wives" patriarch Brady Williams has it more than covered this time around.

Brady has 31 mouths to feed this year ... and the grocery list is both impressive and financially depressing.

  • 2 Turkeys

  • 1-2 gallons of Gravy

  • 8 cans of Black Olives
  • 4 large cans of Stuffed Green Olives (a family fave)
  • 1 large jar of Cranberry Sauce
  • 4 quarts of Baby Dill Pickles
  • 3-4 gallons of Holiday Beverage

That doesn't include dessert ... we're told the Williams clan can choose from 15-20 varieties of pie.

At least they'll be saving on electricity ... all electronics are banned on Thanksgiving. No iPods, computers, phones or TVs permitted.

So you plop yourself on the sofa and do what?

EXCLUSIVE

112614_kylie_tyga_launch_v2Tyga and Kylie Jenner had forbidden love written all over them --well, maybe a little overstated -- as they served up meals for the homeless on Thanksgiving Eve.

The 25-year-old rapper insists he's not romantically involved with the 17-year-old reality star, but there's plenty of smoke ... you'll recall a week ago when he pitched a fit because the club where he was supposed to perform wouldn't let her in because of her age.

So check out the video of Tyga and his blue haired babe at the L.A. Mission. Best part of the video ... Miss California was trying to teach Tyga how to serve up a meal and Kylie came over like a heat-seeking missile to show him who's boss.

112614_jeremy_lin_launchJeremy Lin thinks the cure to frustration is 930 calories of frozen confectionery goodness ...  telling TMZ Sports he turns to a McDonald's McFlurry to deal with the pain of a crushing Lakers loss.

Ba da ba ba ba.

Floyd Mayweather

My Ex's Abortion Is Fair Game

We're Too Famous for Privacy

11/26/2014 10:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1126_floyd_mayweather_Shantel-Jackson_tmzFloyd Mayweather is firing back at his ex-fiancee Shantel Jackson -- claiming he did NOT violate her right to privacy by discussing her abortion in detail on social media ... because their relationship was for public consumption anyway. 

As we previously reported, Jackson sued Mayweather earlier this year for a bunch of different reasons -- including assault, battery, defamation, invasion of privacy and more. 

Now, Floyd is trying to get the several claims dismissed -- and in new legal docs, he focused on her claim that he violated her right to privacy. He starts off his argument in the most Mayweather way possible:

"At age 37 I am an undefeated boxer. I have been the world champion in five different weight divisions."

He goes on to explain that when he met Jackson, "she asked me to help her become famous" ... and stated that her only semblance of fame was appearing in 7 music videos.

Floyd says he used his celebrity to help build her up -- and says they became so famous, people were interested in every aspect of their relationship ... including the breakup.  

Which is why Floyd says he went to social media earlier this year and told the world he ended things with Shantel because she had an abortion behind his back.

"Both parties are public figures. Abortion is a public issue," Mayweather states in the docs. 

He adds, "A public figure involved with another public figure in a public relationship can expect publicity, not privacy, about why it ends."

Mayweather wants the suit thrown out asap. A judge has yet to rule.
