Black Flag guitarist Greg Ginn is not to be trusted with his 2 daughters ... which his ex-wife says is obvious to anyone who watches this video of him perving out with a young chick on stage.
Ginn performed with Black Flag in July at a Butte, MT music festival. A young woman jumped on stage and gotta say ... what he does with her is pretty shocking.
The guy who shot the video says it was so creepy ... he contacted Ginn's ex-wife because he feared for the safety of the couple's daughters, ages 10 and 7.
Marina Ginn says her ex has become increasingly erratic, and in court docs she accuses him of going off the rails with drugs around the kids. She says he neglects to feed them when they're with him and disciplines them by throwing water in their faces.
Marina says they currently have joint custody ... she now wants sole custody.
Greg's lawyer calls BS ... telling us the concert video is not what it seems, insisting it's harmless. He says Marina has her own emotional issues -- pointing out her online adult entertainment profile. He says what's really behind this is jealousy ... he's in a new relationship.
Cause of Death May Remain Mystery
Because NO AUTOPSY
10/19/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We may never know exactly what killed Joan Rivers ... because a decision was made NOT to do an autopsy ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the NYC Medical Examiner tell us ... Melissa Rivers was despondent when Joan died and told doctors she did not want an autopsy performed. According to New York law, doctors will honor such a request if there's no evidence of criminality associated with the death.
The Medical Examiner has concluded the cause of death was deprivation of oxygen which caused irreversible brain damage. We're told they determined the "predictable" complication involved the procedure itself and not Propofol.
Here's the problem ... we're told without an autopsy it's impossible to pinpoint the nature of the problem. As one source said, an autopsy might reveal a puncture in the throat or other trauma.
The only way Joan's family might get a definitive answer is if a doctor or nurse owns up to a possible mistake ... and even then it's just someone's word.
So the precise cause of Joan's death may forever stay a mystery.
My Cigar Can Wait
'Cause I'm Addicted To Fatherhood
10/19/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Jordan loves a lit cigar ... but there are two things he loves even more -- 'cause when it came to puffing his stogie or carrying his newborn in Vegas ... MJ chose wisely.
Jordan was in Sin City for a golf tournament recently with all his normal accessories -- hoop earrings, twin daughters, and his now trademark cigar ... except this time his stogie coals were on chill.
Despite the fact he was chewing on a fat one -- and there were people smoking all around him -- we're told MJ fought the urge to light up until his kids were put to bed.
Look, it's not the greatest accomplishment in the world ... but when you love stogies like MJ loves stogies (see: MJ double-fisting) .... it's the little victories that count.
'August: Osage County' Star
Family Now Says
She Didn't Kill Herself ... She Fell
10/17/2014 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The family of Misty Upham no longer believes she killed herself ... they say she ACCIDENTALLY fell off a cliff ... but it's unclear if this is little more than wishful thinking.
The "August: Osage County" star was found dead in a Washington ravine Thursday evening ... she went off a steep cliff near her home and apparently died from the fall.
Her family -- who said they had reason to fear Misty had committed suicide during the time she was missing -- now tells TMZ they believe it was a tragic accident, and that Misty wanted to live.
They say the area where Misty died is very scenic and they believe she was there in a reflective mood. They also say the more they thought about it the less likely they believed it was suicide because she had been talking about her plans to move back to L.A.
Misty's purse and shoes were not on her body ... they were at the top of the cliff.
It's odd the family has so radically changed its opinion. We asked if there was life insurance on Mindy -- that could be relevant because there are typically suicide exclusions -- but they said they didn't know.
Ray J's Dog
Boogati Back with His Bottom Bitch
After Battling Depression
10/17/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ray J and Princess Love have declared a truce in their bitter breakup and custody battle -- all for the sake of their children puppies.
Princess Love tells TMZ their pet Maltese, Boogati, is now back at home ... reunited with their 3 other dogs. She says Ray J showed mercy because he thought Boogati was depressed.
As we reported ... Ray J took Boogati with him when he broke up with Princess Love and moved out. She claimed the other dogs were constantly crying -- especially Coco ... because she missed the Boog man.
Apparently the feelings were mutual, since we're told Boogati wasn't eating -- but Princess says all the pups are good now ... and claims she'll let Ray visit with them whenever he wants.
Heidi Klum & Seal
Divorce Signed, Sealed and Delivered
10/16/2014 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Heidi Klum is officially back on the market ... her divorce from Seal became final Tuesday ... and TMZ has learned they've made a clean break ... no problems splitting property and NO spousal support.
Sources close to the pair tell us ... they did not have a prenup, but signed a postnup at some point during their marriage, keeping much of their earnings separate. We're told there were no big fights over money, and they reached a property settlement agreement months ago.
Our sources say neither Heidi nor Seal will get spousal support ... they're both well off -- she more than he.
They've also worked out a confidential arrangement for custody of their 4 kids.
As we reported, Heidi filed for divorce in April 2012. It started out rocky ... as we reported, Heidi split from Seal because she claimed he had an out-of-control temper that scared her and the kids.
The one thing Heidi demanded and got -- her name back. She's Heidi Klum again.
Heidi's single status may be in jeopardy ... the 41-year-old has been linked to 28-year-old art dealer Vito Schnabel.
No reaction yet from Seal ... but he was pretty clear to us in Sept. 2012 how he felt about Heidi's previous boy toy.
Jenni Rivera Crash
Husband She Ditched
Wants Millions For His Loneliness
10/16/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jenni Rivera's husband wants $35 million from the owners of the plane that crashed and killed her ... even though the couple had filed divorce papers prior to the crash.
Jenni filed for divorce from former MLB pitcher Esteban Loaiza more than 2 months before the plane she was on went down in December 2012 ... but the paperwork hadn't been finalized when she died, so they were still married.
According to court docs ... Loaiza is suing Starwood Management for $25 million in lost future income, $5 mil in past earnings, and -- get this -- $5 mil more in loss of companionship.
Remember, they'd already separated ... so you'd think the S.S. Companionship would have sailed long before Jenni's death.
Gotta hand it to him -- pitcher's got balls.
Arnold Schwarzenegger's Son
Chip Off the Ole Mr. Universe Block
10/15/2014 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We have a winner in the Swoll-Just-Like-My-Dad sweepstakes -- 'cause Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's youngest son Christopher is looking like he could pull it off.
The son of the 7-time Mr. Olympia/5-time Mr. Universe is only 17, but he's obviously growing into his Schwarzenegger genes. Christopher even sported a t-shirt from his dad's bodybuilding competition ... while walking with his mom ... looking more like her bodyguard in L.A.
Fun fact: Arnold won his first Mr. Universe title at age 20. Chris, ya still got a few years to beat Dad's mark.
For Up to 1 Year
10/15/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Amanda Bynes is headed for another conservatorship, but we're told it almost certainly will not be at the hands of her parents. Rather, we've learned Amanda's doctors are planning to get the type of conservatorship that can keep her confined and medicated for up to 1 year.
Sources familiar with Amanda's treatment tell TMZ ... the plan is to get an LPS Hold -- something a judge will grant at the behest of doctors but only if the patient is "gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder or impairment by chronic alcoholism."
The LPS Hold allows doctors to confine Amanda -- at either the hospital or another secure facility -- and administer meds against her will.
The LPS Hold is far more stringent than what her parents could get. The parents could not legally force meds on Amanda nor could they effectively restrain her. We're told Amanda literally hates her parents now after they tricked her into coming to the mental hospital.
You may recall ... doctors got an LPS Hold on Amanda a little more than a year ago after she went off the rails ... ending with lighting a driveway on fire and dousing her dog with gasoline. That LPS Hold expired last month.
Our sources say the doctors will likely ask a judge for a new LPS Hold within a week ... after Amanda is fully diagnosed.
I Hate My Parents
For Deceiving Me
10/14/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Amanda Bynes is filled with anger as she sits in a Pasadena mental facility ... after her parents created an elaborate ruse to get her committed.
TMZ broke the story ... Amanda's parents worked with Sam Lutfi to lure her from NYC to LA Friday. Lutfi convinced her to take a car service to what she believed was a Pasadena law office, where she would meet with a lawyer about suing her parents for abuse. The building was actually a mental facility. When she walked in the front door, she was restrained and involuntarily committed.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Amanda feels utterly betrayed and says her relationship with her parents is "destroyed forever." Although she's had a poor relationship with her dad, she had warm feelings for her mom ... until Friday.
We're told Amanda is in the women's lockdown section of the facility ... where she is showing fits of anger. Doctors are medicating her, but it takes time for the meds to kick in.
Here's the long-term problem. As TMZ first reported ... Amanda's parents will seek and, almost certainly get, another conservatorship before she leaves the facility in 2 weeks -- doctors got the 72-hour hold extended by 14 days. But everyone involved concedes ... it will be extremely difficult to manage Amanda given her hatred for her parents.
Beyonce & Jay Z
Louvre Us Alone!
10/13/2014 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Beyonce, Jay Z and baby Blue Ivy hit up the Louvre in Paris and they managed to score the most private tour of the museum ever.
The power couple posed for a photo in front of the Mona Lisa -- just them and Mona -- and walked around the rest of the place all by their lonesome.
The photos were taken last Tuesday, the day the museum is closed. A staffer tells TMZ it's not uncommon for people to take private tours on off days.
We're told a small museum staff came in (about 20-25 people), Beyonce and Jay were there for about an hour and a half, and they covered the costs of staffing the joint.
Hard knock life.
Ruse for Psych Hold
Created by Britney Spears 'Bad Guy'
10/11/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The person who tricked Amanda Bynes into flying to L.A. where she ended up in a mental ward is none other than the man who some say created life-threatening peril for a then-unstable Britney Spears.
TMZ has learned ... Sam Lutfi -- who Britney's parents say was recklessly medicating her before she was eventually strapped to a stretcher and taken to a psych ward in 2008 -- contacted Amanda Thursday and convinced her to sue her parents. He got her to fly to L.A. so he could hook her up with a lawyer.
Here's what Amanda DIDN'T know ... Lutfi was secretly working with Amanda's parents and it was all an elaborate ruse to lure her out so doctors could place her on an involuntary psychiatric hold.
We now have more clarification as to how Lutfi pulled it off. He told Amanda her car would be making 2 stops. First, to the lawyer's office in Pasadena and then to the London Hotel in West Hollywood where she would confront her parents and tell them about the lawsuit.
She never got to the London, because the driver went to a Pasadena hospital which looked like an office building. Amanda thought she was going to see the lawyer but when she walked inside she was surrounded by hospital staff.
TMZ broke the story ... Amanda was placed on a 72-hour psych hold which can be extended for 14 days. We're told during that time her parents will attempt to get another conservatorship.
Lutfi -- who has always said he was actually protecting Britney -- is a hero in the eyes of Amanda's parents. We're told they are going to publicly thank him.
Siblings Draw Battle Lines
Our Dad is NOT an Abuser
10/10/2014 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The brother and sister of Amanda Bynes have lashed out at her for attacking their dad and accusing him of physical and sexual abuse.
Jillian O'Keefe and Tommy Bynes tell TMZ through their lawyer, Tamar Arminak, "We are disturbed beyond words that Amanda would come up with such a fabrication as a way to avoid getting much needed help or treatment."
Amanda went on the warpath against her dad Friday after she learned her parents were coming to NYC to get her into a mental health facility, tweeting her dad had sexually and physically abused her ... something her dad vehemently denies.
Jillian and Tommy are right behind their father, calling their parents "the most wonderful parents who have ever lived."
They add, "We are pained by [Amanda's] behavior but we absolutely give our full unconditional love and support to our wonderful parents."
