B.B. King

Doctor Claims No Signs Of Mistreatment

5/5/2015 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

BB King Doctor Abuse The daughter of blues legend B.B. King is WRONG ... her dad is not being grossly mistreated by his manager -- this according to King's own doctor who says he's not being mistreated at all.

B.B.'s daughter claimed his manager, Laverne Toney, was ignoring clear signs of medical distress and insinuated money was the end game. 

But we just got a statement from a lawyer hired by Toney, who claims to rep B.B. King. The lawyer included a statement from B.B.'s doctor of 10 years, Dr. Darin Brimhall, who says, "The care and treatment that Mr. King has received, and continues to receive, is medically appropriate and I have seen no signs of any mistreatment of Mr. King."

What the lawyer DOESN'T say is interesting. B.B.'s daughter says her dad is at death's door, and the doctor doesn't dispute that.

It's Hard to Fight Jay Z

in That Dress

5/5/2015 8:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Solange Knowles Met Gala Dress 2015It would be tough to punch and kick your brother-in-law when you're wearing ... whatever the hell Solange Knowles wore Monday night to the Met Gala.

Hard to believe -- but it's been a year since Beyonce's sister famously went ballistic and attacked Jay Z in an elevator ... during an after party for last year's gala. 

Jay Z Attacked By Solange Knowles

Meanwhile, Bey stole the whole damn night when she showed up in a ridiculous sheer nude-colored dress.

Damned if she was gonna let Solange steal the headlines this year.

B.B. King

Family Claims Rock Star Friends

Can't Say Goodbye

5/5/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504_bb_king_gettyB.B. King is being isolated from his family and celebrity friends, including Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana and Eric Clapton, and it's all a sinister plot by his manager to fleece his estate ... so says his daughter. 

Karen Williams claims in new legal docs her dad is being horribly neglected by B.B.'s manager, Laverne Toney. She says Toney has hired a caregiver who got so drunk he fell asleep and B.B. fell and bashed his face in.  

Williams says Toney won't take her dad to the dentist to treat his abscesses, because she says he's broke. Yet Williams claims B.B. had a $5 million balance in his account just last year.

But Williams says the money is being drained, and quickly. She says in April 2014, more than $453k was withdrawn from B.B.'s account.

TMZ broke the story, Toney refused to let the family take B.B. to the hospital late last week after the legend suffered a minor heart attack. Cops came and took B.B. to the hospital, where he was examined and then released.

Williams says Toney has claimed B.B. is at death's door, yet she won't allow anyone to see him, which Williams says is suspicious.

Williams is asking a judge to make her the guardian of her dad's estate.

Manny Pacquiao

Aunt Claims

Fight Was Fixed

5/3/2015 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight was unanimous in everyone's eyes, but Manny's aunt and cousins are steadfast ... the fight was fixed.

Aunt Lilia and crew were leaving the Mandalay Bay on Sunday when our photog asked whether Manny was cheated, remember the boxer felt he had won the fight. His family went 5 steps further and claimed the whole thing was rigged and people got paid off. 

They weren't done... they also trash talked Floyd.

TMZ Sports got Aunt Lilia back in March when she belted out the signature tune from 'Frozen." She might want to take some advice ... let it go.

Grandma Mayweather

Manny's Got to Apologize to Floyd

For Talkin' S***'

5/3/2015 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather may have hugged Manny Pacquiao after the fight, but all is not forgiven with Floyd's fierce grandma.

Bernice Mayweather was leaving the MGM Grand in Vegas after the fight when to told our photog ... there can be no post-fight friendship until Manny takes back all his trash talk against the champ.

Bernice has a thing or 2 to say about drugs, confidence and strip clubs, where she says she'd happily meet her grandson because, after all, she's fully grown.

Prince William, Kate Middleton

Welcome New Daughter

Whatever Your Name Is

5/2/2015 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0502-kate-william-baby-getty-02Kate Middleton bounced back hours after giving birth to a little girl who is now 4th in line to become England's head honcho, thanks to Prince William.

The third in line to the throne briefly left the hospital Saturday where his wife, Kate Middleton, gave birth to the 8 lb. 3 oz. baby.  William returned 10 minutes later with 1-year-old George.

Daughter and mom are doing great, and William -- who was present during the birth -- did not look the worse for wear.

The baby -- whose name has not been announced -- is now 4th in line for the throne, behind Charles, William and George ... and 5th if you count Tommen Baratheon.

Michael Lohan

I'm On an Installment Plan

for Child Support!

5/2/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Lohan Paying Child SupportBad news for Michael Lohan, with a silver lining ... he still owes Dina Lohan a big chunk of change in child support, but at least now he gets to pay it off over time.

MiLo cut a check recently for $9,500 to the New York State Child Support Processing Center to partially settle his debt with Dina. He still owes around $6,000.

The judge has mercifully let the patriarch pay the balance in $1,500/month installments. Michael had previously argued he paid his kids directly because Dina was irresponsible in the money department, but the judge scoffed, ruling that dog don't hunt.  

The judge had previously revoked Michael's passport and suspended his driver's license, but he got them back once he paid the $9,500.

Amal Clooney's Hot Sister

Take A Knee Tala ...

Epic Fall

5/1/2015 11:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amal Clooney Sister FallsSeems like it was only yesterday Amal Clooney's hot kid sister Tala Alamuddin stepped into the spotlight, and now she's already tripping in it. 

Tala got a closer look at the pavement outside Il Buco Thursday night in Manhattan where she was celebrating her birthday with Amal and George Clooney.

Like a pro, she knows knees can heel and never drops her Alexander McQueen clutch.

At least she still looked great.

Kim Kardashian

Hey, Bruce ...

Hands Off My Glam Team!

5/1/2015 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian will support Bruce Jenner in any way she can during his transition ... except when it comes to the people who make HER look good.

KK was a guest Thursday night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and talked about how Bruce has been doing since last week's big interview.

Bruce specifically called out Kim during his Diane Sawyer interview  ... saying she's been the most supportive of all his children. But Kim told Jimmy her help was limited to just her and not her "glam team."

A girl cannot be expected to part with her glam team.

Baltimore Riots Mom

Oprah Gave Me Thumbs Up

For Smackdown On My Son

EXCLUSIVE

It's one thing for the media to call you mother of the year -- but the so-called "Baltimore Riots mom" got an even better stamp of approval ... from Oprah Winfrey

We just talked to Toya Graham and her son, Michael Singleton, in NYC ... where she's become a media darling for her now famous public shaming -- and butt-whupping -- of her son when he attempted to join rioters in Baltimore this week.

Toya told us about all the cool people she's met in person since the run-in -- but explained why the phone call from Oprah topped them all. She also revealed what big O had to say about her parenting skills.

Best of all ... Toya tells us exactly what kind of punishment Michael's getting at home.

Lesson learned ... we guarantee.

Mariah Carey

Nick Cannon Diss Song ...

NOT About Nick

4/30/2015 8:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

You'd think Nick Cannon would be preparing for war against Mariah Carey after releasing her song, "Infinity," which seems to put him in her crosshairs, but she says it's not ... and he's buying it.

According to our sources, the song is about women in general and how some "lose themselves in their man." We're told Mariah says it is "not specifically about her relationship with Nick." 

As for the lyric that seems to say Nick doesn't have his own money, we're told Mariah was singing about men with no ambition to be successful ... doesn't seem to fit Nick.

Clearly there's no hate on Nick's side ... because he posted a photo pimping her new album.

Manny Pacquiao

My Dad Ate My Dog

Manny Pacquiao ran away from home at the age of 12 ... when he caught his father eating his pet dog ... this according to his trainer Freddie Roach. 

Roach was talking to Yahoo! Sports about how the boxer's family struggled with poverty in the Philippines when he was a child -- and apparently, things were so tough ... Manny's father cooked the family dog for food. 

When Manny realized what had happened, he ran away from home -- and began to live on the streets.

"He slept in a cardboard box. He fought his way through all this, turned pro at 14, and look at the man he is today," Roach said. 

BTW -- Manny has a new dog named Pacman ... and NO ONE is allowed to eat it.  

Bruce Jenner

Kids Deliver Shocking News

Don't Do Reality TV!!!

4/27/2015 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0424-kim-jenners-getty-04In a truly weird turn, Bruce Jenner's sons, along with Kim Kardashian, are warning him to slow down on revealing too much of his journey on reality TV.

Sources connected with Bruce's brood tell us, Kim and the boys think Bruce was spectacular on the Diane Sawyer special and won over millions of people in the process.

They say they're worried Bruce's upcoming docuseries might "de-class" what he's accomplished. We're told they also urged Bruce not to do other interviews and finish the process in private.

We're told some of the kids have gone to their dad to express their concern, but the ship has sailed. Bruce believes the docuseries will educate people and create empathy, so he's committed.

We're also told Bruce's kids won't appear on his show.

Now that's strange.
