Justin Bieber

Pint-sized Trespassers

In Pool Party Confrontation

2/1/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber TrespassersJustin Bieber lost it with 2 young fans, chewing them out and taking one of their cellphones ... but he was more than justified.

We're told a 12-year-old Belieber decided to celebrate her birthday with a friend last Saturday by sneaking onto Justin's estate.

The girls found an opening in the form of an open gate, went inside and came face to face with Justin who was enjoying the 80 degree weather with friends in his pool.

Justin spotted and then berated them for trespassing -- which frankly sounds reasonable -- and then confiscated one of their very active cellphones.

The girls left and cops were not called. We're told they sheepishly returned a few days later and retrieved the phone.

Getting their dignity back ... not so easy.

Suge Knight

Surveillance Cams Broken ...

Pointed Wrong Way

2/1/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0130-tams-security-cameras-tmz-01Suge Knight thinks surveillance video will exonerate him, while cops believe it could be the smoking gun that nails him for murder. Well both sides need a Plan B, because the surveillance footage doesn't exist.

The owner of Tam's -- the Compton hamburger joint where Suge ran over and killed Terry Carter -- tells us the security camera trained at the parking lot doesn't work. He got nothin'.

There's a Wells Fargo nearby but we went out there and the cameras don't face in the direction of Tam's parking lot. Ditto the Louisiana Fried Chicken joint and the Rite Aid.

Law enforcement sources tell us they also checked and came up goose eggs. 

They're all on the hunt for someone who might have captured the accident and what preceded it on their cell phone.

NFL's Titus Young

Football Hits Caused Mental Issues

... Doctors Say

EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NFL star Titus Young is suffering from a traumatic brain injury caused by repeated blows to the head ... which contributed to his alleged violent behavior ... so say the specialists treating Young at a mental health facility in San Diego. 

As we previously reported, the 25-year-old former Detroit Lions receiver was arrested last year after allegedly attacking people in 5 separate incidents ... and was locked up in a L.A. County jail. 

Now, we've learned Young recently bonded out and has been receiving treatment at the Crosby Center in S.D. -- where specialists believe Young's issues come from the hits he took playing football. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Pete Daniels, intake coordinator at the Center, who tells us Young was admitted to the facility last weekend and has been working with a team of specialists and doctors non-stop. 

Despite the short stay, Daniels says the doctors say Young's symptoms include hypervigilance, mood swings, emotional instability and more. 

"All of the these are results of Young taking hits to the head for long periods of time," Daniels says ... "without a doubt."

Daniels says Young has been responding positively to the treatment -- he's feeling better and more in control of his life. 

Young -- who's still facing criminal charges for the alleged assaults -- is expected to remain at the center for least 6 more weeks. Daniels says he hopes the judge will allow him to continue treatment instead of putting him back behind bars. 

"He’s trusting us and he's allowing a family member to stay with him to provide support," Daniels says ... "We should have a good, accurate diagnosis and plan of how to address his treatment in the next 21 days."

He's only 5 months old, but the son of boxing champ Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin is already killin' the modeling game -- booking some pretty big gigs .... and even appearing on the "Today" show.

Quillin -- the former WBO Middleweight champ -- says his son Joaquin just finished up a modeling shoot with Babies "R" Us ... in which his little man is modeling a bassinet. 

Joaquin was also picked to star in a "Today" show segment last week with Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee -- in which the gang gave advice on how to budget for college for a newborn. 

Quillin says everyone loved him so much, there's a good chance Joaquin will be back on the show next week. He also just filmed a bit for TheBump.com. 

"I'm so proud of my son," Peter says ... "Whether he decides to box or model, his mom and I will be his number one fan."

Dr. Dre

Suge's Full of It

I Never Asked for a Peace Summit

EXCLUSIVE

0130-suge-knight-dr-dre-tmz-01
Dr. Dre
is calling BS on Suge Knight for suggesting the good Doc asked Suge to come to the set to make peace with him.

Sources connected with Dre tell us ... he scoffed when he was told Suge is claiming Terry Carter -- the man he struck and killed -- was bringing Suge to the set because Dre wanted to end their beef.

TMZ broke the story ... less than an hour before the hit and run, Suge went to another set location but was thrown out by Dre's security. Sources connected with Suge say he got a call from Carter who said he had just spoken with Dre and the Beats mogul said he wanted Suge to return so he could make peace.

Our Dre sources say it never happened, and note it's pretty convenient the only other person who has first-hand knowledge is dead because Suge killed him.

As for why Dre and his people didn't want Suge around ... we're told it's because they view Suge as having a big fat target on his back. They say the shooting last Summer where Suge was hit 6 times is proof enough ... he has enemies, and Dre didn't want him and his people in the line of fire.

DMX Praying Video

DMX makes the fieriest of pastors look like boring insurance salesmen ... this is one for the ages.

It all went down in Las Vegas before a concert ... when 44-year-old DMX asked the man upstairs to prevent stabbings, shootings and fighting from ruining his gig.

You gotta watch the faces of his makeshift congregation. They are either deep in prayer or doing everything humanly possible not to bust up.

Please watch this video. It could save you.

Brandon Marshall

Cleared for Takeoff

... After Punctured Lung Injury

1/31/2015 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0130-brandon-marshall-airplane-getty-01Chicago Bears fans can take a deep breath, 'cause Brandon Marshall's punctured lung is doing MUCH better ... so say his doctors who allowed the WR to begin flying again ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We broke the story ... Marshall had to miss a court-ordered deposition last month stemming from a case in which he's accused of attacking a woman outside of a NYC nightclub in 2012.

Marshall claimed doctors told him it was unsafe to fly since he had just suffered a punctured lung from a hit he took during a Thursday Night Football game. 

But everything's been healing well ... and earlier this month, Marshall told the court he's been cleared for takeoff ... and was willing and able to attend a makeup depo on January 30th. 

Sources tell us Marshall made his appointment and sat for a deposition without a hitch ... or a breathing issue.

In fact, now that he's got the green light to fly, Marshall's been traveling like crazy -- hitting PHX, CHI, NYC and L.A. in just the last few days.

5:30 PM PT --
A rep for Val tells TMZ that the actor is currently undergoing tests for a possible tumor. Doctors are encouraged by his progress and hopeful he will make a full recovery.

8:50 AM PT --
Val has released the following statement on his Facebook page -- "Thank you for all your sweet support. But I have not had a tumor, or a tumor operations, or any operation. I had a complication where the best way to receive care was to stay under the watchful eye of the ucla ICU. Friends have assisted who know my spiritual convictions and have been most sensitive and kind for the extra effort in making sure there's minimum gossip and silly talk. I am praying for a speedy return to the boards as they say. God bless you all and please don't worry. Love and deep affection , Val."
update_grey_gray_barVal Kilmer was rushed to a hospital this week after he began bleeding from the throat ... and we're told it's a throat tumor. 

Law enforcement sources tell us paramedics rushed to his Malibu home Monday night after someone called 911 and reported the bleeding.  

The "Top Gun" star was taken to UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica. Doctors performed surgery and he's currently recovering.

We're told family members have been upset because they feel Val has ignored the problem and allowed it to get worse.

In October Val was in small claims court over a dispute with his former landlord and he told the judge he was unable to speak because his tongue was swollen.

Kilmer was last seen in public at a Clippers game with his son Jack. Val had his neck covered during the game.

EXCLUSIVE

013015_antonio_brown_launch_v3
Pharrell Williams has officially passed the wide brim hat torch to a guy who torches defenses ... Steelers star Antonio Brown tells TMZ Sports his fashion forward lid set him back over $600!

Brown is with the rest of the sports world at the Super Bowl in Arizona so when our camera guy ran into the always dapper Pro Bowler we had to ask ... dude, what's with the hat?

That's when Brown swagged us out a little bit, telling us that his fancy lid wasn't any regular dome-shielder ... this one put a $600 dent in his $42 million pockets.

One more thing ... we're not fashion experts ... and far be it for us to question a man's right to expression, but ...

We're pretty sure he's wearing the hat backwards.
 

'All About Sex' Bosses

Yeah, We're Gonna Need to

Get Back Those Vibrators

1/31/2015 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

013015_lipstick_vibrator_launchTaking your work home with you, when your work is sex toys ... is a major dil-don't -- a lesson the staff of TLC's "All About Sex" just learned.

Sources tell us producers got a huge box of vibrators delivered to their office 2 weeks ago in preparation for an upcoming episode -- but a day after the toys arrived ... they all vanished.

We're told producers had one not-so-mysterious explanation -- curious employees swiped 'em. So, bosses called a full staff meeting, and asked for the immediate return of the toys.

Imagine that awkward convo ... and even more awkward -- they got back 2 items! We're guessing/hoping the mini vibrator and kegel balls set we're unopened.

Anyway, watch the clip ... they made do with what they had, and the mini vibe (used or not) was a big hit. As for the future -- we're told producers are keeping all toys under lock and key.

Oooh, bondage.
