Dez Bryant's Mom

I Love My Son, He Loves Me

'Someone's Trying to Sabotage Us'

2/26/2015 4:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0226-angela-dez-bryant-tmz-getty-01Dez Bryant's mom says she's buried the hatchet with her son over the 2012 domestic violence incident and loves him very much -- but says she's convinced someone is trying to use Dez's past to sabotage his NFL future. 

TMZ Sports spoke with a rep for Angela Bryant ... who tells us, "Ever since the 2012 incident, they have worked out their issues and they've got a lot of love for each other."

As we previously reported, Dez was arrested for allegedly assaulting his mom during an argument in her Texas home ... though the charge was eventually dismissed. 

"Angela and her son have a great relationship and whoever is behind this is using [Dez's past in an] attempt to assassinate Dez's character."

The rep says Dez and his mother have been speaking regularly about the current situation -- and, "They believe it is no coincidence that this is happening around the time that [Dez's] contract is up for renewal."

Angela's rep says she believes ... "It comes down to someone trying to interfere with Dez getting his contract extended from the Cowboys."

"[Dez and Angela] don't know who's behind it. They are desperately trying to find out."

Bobbi Kristina

No Signs of Improvement

Still in a Coma

EXCLUSIVE

0225-bobbi-kristina-instagram-01

Bobbi Kristina is not getting better. She is still unresponsive, in a coma, and showing no signs of getting better.

Family sources tell TMZ ... stories that Bobbi Kristina is being taken out of her coma are not accurate. We're told the only change in treatment is that doctors tried weaning her off certain meds to see if she might react but nothing happened. She's in the same condition she's been in for weeks.

Our sources say there have been signs of organ deterioration but she's still basically in the same, unresponsive condition she's been in since a few days after the accident.

As for the tracheotomy, we're told doctors performed the procedure not because she was getting better, but because it's standard operating procedure when a patient might linger in a comatose state for a long period of time.

Our sources say it's possible Bobbi Kristina could hang on for a long period of time in the same state, despite signs of organ failure. It's ultimately up to Bobby Brown to decide how long she'll live in that state.

Hope Solo

Prosecutors Appeal Domestic Violence Case

2/26/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0225_hope_solo_abc

Hope Solo ain't outta the woods yet in her domestic violence case ... because prosecutors have filed an appeal claiming there were significant "issues" with the judge's decision to dismiss the case.  

TMZ Sports has learned ... the prosecutor's office for the City of Kirkland in Washington filed the appeal earlier this month. 

As we previously reported, Solo was accused of beating the crap out of her 17-year-old nephew and her own half-sister during an alleged drunken rampage in 2014. 

Solo denied any wrongdoing ... and a judge threw out the case in January, citing lack of cooperation from witnesses. 

But we spoke with Solo's half-sister Teresa Obert -- who says BS ... telling TMZ Sports they were fully cooperative from the beginning. 

Obert also says her story has remained the same from the beginning ... and insists Solo was LYING when she claimed she was the real victim. 

"She slammed my son's head into the concrete multiple times, punching me repeatedly when I pulled her off of him," Teresa says ... "We tried to keep her away, but she kept coming back into the house. We've never changed our story."

Sources from the prosecutor's office tell TMZ Sports it's NOT standard operating procedure to appeal every D.V. case that's dismissed -- only in cases where "we believe there are issues."

Officials would not tell us what those "issues" are. 

Don't expect a ruling on the appeal any time soon ... these things usually take a while.

8:25 AM PT -- Gordon just tweeted a screen grab of a text he sent Bobby saying, "Man to man I love your daughter ...  I don't know why you won't let me see her ... Your daughter is going to hate you when she wakes up.  It's not like you know her anyways.  What's her favorite color?  What's her favorite smell, movies, food.  You don't know. I forgive you she won't."

update_grey_gray_bar

Nick Gordon is refusing to talk to cops about the circumstances surrounding Bobbi Kristina ending up face down in a bathtub, and he's refusing to tell Bobby Brown as well.

Bobby Brown's lawyer, Chris Brown, says Gordon has refused to cooperate by coming clean with the events that led to the medical emergency and there's no reason to talk to him anymore about giving him a hospital visit.

Brown says, "It appears that Mr. Gordon did not want his understanding of the facts to be subject to the truthful examination of various experts or Bobby Brown himself."

Brown continues, "Mr. Gordon has every right to remain silent and not share his version of events with Bobby Brown," adding, "Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe."

TMZ broke the story ... Nick became the target of a criminal investigation after authorities noticed injuries to Bobbi Kristina's body when she was taken to the hospital.

Kim Kardashian pisses off Kris Jenner so much by not letting her in Kim and Kanye's new house, the matriarch throws a rock through her window ... according to the script for the upcoming reality show. 

Production sources tell TMZ ... there's a very detailed outline of scenes for season 10 of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." In one scene, after Kim and Kanye move into their new home, Kim goes back to Kris' home and takes a bunch of cookware and silverware.

When Kris realizes it, she storms over to Kim's house to confront her, and through a crack in the door Kris screams, "I gave you life and you stole my cookware!" Kim fires back that if Kris doesn't back off she'll have her removed from the premises. 

Kim slams the door and Kris goes crazy, picks up a rock and throws it at an upstairs window, shattering the glass as she screams, "You won't get rid of me this easily."

The best part ... it's so scripted North West cries on cue.

Idina Menzel And Taye Diggs

We're So Rich ...

Divorce is Easy

EXCLUSIVE

Taye Diggs Idina Menzel Divorce
Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have made it clear in their divorce settlement ... they're both so loaded they can live nicely on their own without bleeding the other dry. 

The settlement makes it clear ... each has accrued earnings and earning capacity that makes spousal support irrelevant. You don't see that much in divorces.  

Their parting of the ways seems completely amicable ... they agreed to share custody of their 5-year-old son, Walker.

Not amicable enough for you? They're also splitting all parenting costs right down the middle, so no child support either.

As previously reported, the couple has lived apart since 2013 but recently decided to pull the plug and end their 10 year marriage.

Kinda makes you want to get a divorce ... kinda.

Jay Z & Beyonce

Can't Find a House, So ...

We're L.A. Renters Now

2/23/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jay Z Beyonce LA HomeBeyonce and Jay Z can't always get what they want -- they've been unable to find the perfect L.A. home to buy ... so, instead they haggled their way into a rental for $150K a month ... and yes, that's a deal.

They're familiar with the crib in ritzy Holmby Hills -- it's the same one they rented last summer on a short term lease ... but our real estate sources tell us they just locked it down for a full year.

We're told the power couple's been itching to move out of the Bev Hills area hotel where they've been living while house hunting -- so they decided to go back to their old digs. 

16,000 sq. ft., 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and an infinity pool with a waterfall ... is one helluva plan B. 

You'll recall, Bey and Jay paid $200K/month for the pad last year -- but we're told they dealt directly with the owner this time and knocked off $50K/mo. ... based on signing a longer lease. 

Even the Carters love a discount.

Nick Can See Bobbi Kristina

BUT ONLY IF ....

update_graphic_red_bar

9:15 AM PST -- Gordon's attorney says his client his legal team advised Nick to reject Bobby Brown's conditions in order to visit Bobbi Kristina.  He says Nick has repeatedly offered to meet with Bobby in private to clear the air, rather than go through lawyers, but the singer turned Gordon down.

update_grey_gray_bar

Bobby Brown is calling BS on Nick Gordon for suggesting the family won't let him see Bobbi Kristina ... but when you read between the lines it sounds like there's a string attached that Nick won't touch.

Brown lawyer says, "To address the continued and never ending media requests for comment about Mr. Gordon's requests to visit Bobbi Kristina, let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit."

The lawyer won't say what "term" Gordon must meet, but it's pretty apparent.  TMZ broke the story there's a criminal investigation because Bobbi Kristina had visible injuries when she was rushed to the hospital, and Nick is the target of the investigation.  Seems obvious ... Brown wants Nick to talk to cops.

The lawyer certainly hinted he wants Nick to sit down with police, saying, "We are only concerned with individuals that can help Bobbi Kristina and bring resolution to the investigation."

As far as we know Nick has not been interviewed by police and the investigation is ongoing.

Nick made a public plea Saturday night to allow him in the hospital, claiming he's the one who can bring his girlfriend back to life, but Brown's lawyer scoffs, saying, "Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe."

Keeping Up With The Kardashians Bruce Jenner Absent

The Kardashians are driving a wedge between themselves and Bruce Jenner, and we've learned the upcoming season of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is a virtual farewell to the patriarch.

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ ... there's a scene in the show where the girls discuss how Bruce is such an infrequent visitor, "Bruce and the boys are almost completely out of the picture."

One of the girls says, "Maybe it's time to admit to themselves that they're barely even enough of a family anymore to go on vacation [with us]."

At one point Kim says, "Things are only going to get more difficult and complicated," referring to Bruce's sex change.

And during the episode, Scott Disick rails on Bruce, saying when they were dune buggying in Pismo Beach, Bruce "got on his high horse on how to be the world's best dad." Scott says he got really annoyed and said to Kourtney, "I wonder what Brody would have to say about that" -- obviously referring to the fact that Bruce was largely absent while Brody grew up.

I Can Save Bobbi Kristina

But I Need to See Her

2/21/2015 6:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0221-nick-gordon-getty-01

Nick Gordon is making a public plea to let him in Bobbi Kristina's hospital room, because he believes his presence could save her life.

Nick just tweeted, "Let me in the hospital to see my girl and let her hear my voice  SHE WILL WAKE UP!!!"

Nick is going public because he's getting nowhere with the Brown and Houston family.   He has been barred from the hospital and several members of the Brown family have threatened physical harm if he shows his face.

TMZ broke the story ... there's a criminal investigation because of injuries on Bobbi Kristina's body when paramedics removed her from her home after she was found submerged in the bathtub.  Nick is the target of that investigation.

Bobbi Kristina is hanging on, but as we reported doctors have already advised pulling life support would be a medically sound decision. Bobby Brown has resisted, believing prayer can work miracles.

Rick Salomon's Dog Is Fine!

But His Daughter Calls Cops

Pam Anderson claims the ruckus over the allegedly "missing" dog Bumblebee is all for nothing ... but Rick Salomon's family is crying foul -- and Rick's daughter got into a standoff at Pam's house.  

After a rough day that included her husband filing for annulment, Anderson went out in Bev Hills ... and told our photog the family pooch was fine, and simply at the groomer. She laughed off the idea she was holding the pup hostage. 

But sources close to Salomon tell TMZ the family went to the groomer Thursday ... and came up with no pooch. Rick's fam claims Pam is lying about Bumblebee's whereabouts. 

Meanwhile, Rick's daughter Tyson had her own issues. Law enforcement sources tell us L.A. County Sheriff's deputies had to go out to Pam's house Thursday night when Pam refused to let Tyson in to grab some of her stuff. We're told Pam never caved ... turning Tyson and deputies away. 

Bottom line ... looks like Rick and her girls will have to sue to get anything out of the house.

Bumblebee
the dog is MIA from Pamela Anderson's Malibu compound, and her estranged husband thinks it's all out of revenge because he filed to annul their marriage.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Pamela saw our post Thursday morning that Rick Salomon has filed for annulment in Las Vegas, claiming she defrauded him into marriage.  

We're told after Pam saw the story, Rick's daughter Tyson -- who was living at the home --  had just walked in the door and Pam ordered her to get out. As Tyson got ready to leave, she asked where her dog Bumblebee was, because the pooch was nowhere to be found.

We're told Pam told Tyson she had the dog taken to a boarding facility, but the place says they never had the dog. 

Short story ... Bumblebee's whereabouts are a mystery.
