Bobbi Kristina Funeral

Brown Cousin Says,

Leolah Brown is Crazy

8/2/2015 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's not only friction between the Brown and Houston families in the wake of Bobbi Kristina's death ... now there's intra-family fighting, with Bobbi's cousin calling Bobbi's aunt "crazy."

Meeta Brown, Bobbi's cousin who attended the funeral, made a beeline for cameras after the service and ragged on Leolah Brown, who was removed after screaming that Pat Houston would be haunted by the ghost of Whitney.

Meeta, who refers to herself as Bobbi Kristina's sister but is actually her cousin, insists the 2 families are getting along fine ... which is not what we're hearing at all.

Meeta, who was on the reality show, "The Houstons: On Our Own," was frequently at Bobbi Kristina's bedside during the last 6 months.

Booted from Bobbi Kristina's Funeral

EXCLUSIVE

Bobbi Kristina's funeral was interrupted Saturday morning by an outburst from Leolah Brown, Bobbi's aunt, who was swiftly removed from the church with the help of Tyler Perry.

An eyewitness tells TMZ, Pat Houston was getting ready to speak when Leolah began screaming, "Pat you know you are wrong for this!"

We're told security descended on Leolah and escorted her out. Tyler Perry followed to help diffuse the situation.

Leolah spoke with photogs outside of the service and made one thing clear ... she says Pat Houston will be haunted by the ghost of Whitney.

We're told Nick Gordon was not at the service. 

As we reported, the Browns and Houstons are feuding again. Several members of Brown's family are upset that Pat Houston has solicited funds instead of flowers for her charity.

‘Love And Hip Hop’ Star

My Uber Driver Wouldn't Charge Me

And I Got Arrested!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0730-teairra-mari-instagram-02Love and Hip Hop’ star Teairra Mari just learned the age-old Hollywood maxim isn't true... fact is, actresses who don't have juice CAN get arrested.

Teairra ate a delicious lunch at Crustacean Wednesday in Bev Hills, and called for an Uber to take her to her next stop.

The drive started ok, but went to hell when Teairra asked the driver if she could use his charger for her iPhone. He said no, and she got pissed. The driver claims she began punching him and grabbed the charger. He pulled over, she refused get out and the cops were called.

Teairra says she never tried stealing his charger, says she only "tapped him" and he was beyond rude and told her to get out of the car like she was a "f***ing prostitute."

Cops were called and the driver made a citizen's arrest for battery and theft. Law enforcement sources tell us they found the charger in her purse.

The lesson ... if she's a charger, they're gonna charger.

Terrible MMA Fighter

(Video)

She's the songbird of our generation ... but Taylor Swift can't fight for a damn. 

Swift posted training footage for one of the fight scenes in her video for "Bad Blood" ...  throwing punching, executing neck strikes and (in a move that would make Cobra Kai proud) SWEEPING THE LEG!

Look, Taylor is no Ronda Rousey ... but she can sing, dammit.

'That's Embarrassing, Bro'

EXCLUSIVE

The Mayweather vs. Berto fight is gonna SUUUUUCCKKK ... so claims boxer Victor Ortiz -- who says the match is "embarrassing" and both fighters need to retire.  

Ortiz was out in NYC getting ready to attend the premiere of his new boxing flick "Southpaw" -- when he went off on both Floyd and Andre Berto ... saying the matchup was a disgrace to the sport.  

"I have no respect for that," Ortiz said. 

Victor -- who fought (and was beat by) Mayweather in 2011 -- did have one suggestion for Floyd ... drop Berto and swap him in instead.  

"Gimme some kind of a chance to redeem myself."

Don't hold your breath.

0718-sub-scott-disick-party-splash-01As for the chick who came out in Scott's bathrobe, we're told he insists it was all for a scene in the video.

The question ... is Kourtney buyin' what he's sellin'?

7/18/2015 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0718-berg-jenner-tmz-getty-03Peter Berg Etch A Sketched his Instagram post, which made Caitlyn Jenner look like a joke.

Peter was remorseful, saying he meant no harm when he re-posted a meme scoffing at Caitlyn winning the ESPY courage award ... showing a soldier with 2 legs amputated next to Caitlyn with the caption, 
"One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs."

Berg says, "I deleted it because I am deeply saddened over the rage and hatred on both sides it is responsible for."  

Berg goes on to say he believes we don't give enough credit to our vets, adding he has no issues with Caitlyn.

Dr. Drew

A famous transgender calmly threatened a disrespectful critic with a ride home ... in an ambulance.

It went down on Dr. Drew's HLN show Thursday, when lawyer and conservative journalist Ben Shapiro addressed transgender Zoey Tur as "Sir."

Zoey -- who was once famed CBS chopper pilot Bob Tur -- put hands on Shapiro and delivered the threat.

Of course, the topic was Caitlyn Jenner.

Danzig

I Said, NO PHOTOS ...

Puts Fan In Headlock!!

7/16/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Metal legends Danzig have a strict no photo policy at all shows -- and failure to follow said policy will get you a quick ass whupping ... as one fan just learned in Southern Cali.

The fan either had massive balls, or was just plain insane ... 'cause he started snapping away with his smartphone during Danzig’s Pomona concert last weekend. Lead singer Glenn Danzig quickly snatched the phone, but the real pain came post-concert when the attention-thirsty idiot tried to get on Danzig's bus ... WITH A CAMERA!!!

He was asking for trouble, and got it in the form of a headlock from Glenn. The video is crazy, and if the fan looks familiar -- his name is Navid Farsi ... the dude who sugar-bombed Adam Levine in Hollywood.

Unlike that incident, Farsi did NOT get charged for the Danzig scrap. 

Love to see him try to enter another Danzig concert though. 

Fetty Wap

Named In Assault Investigation

Exclusive Video

"Trap Queen" rapper Fetty Wap and his boys jumped a store clerk and beat the hell out of him -- maybe, possibly ... according to the clerk who's got cops hot on Fetty's ass now.

Cops in Paramus, NJ tell us the 19-year-old Shop Rite clerk claims a female patron slapped him Friday night, and then her male friends jumped in and started whupping him in the middle of the store. TMZ obtained this video of the melee.

The clerk told cops he thought one of the male attackers was Fetty Wap, but admits he's not positive it was the rapper because of all the commotion. He only suffered minor injuries and doesn't want to press charges ... but if cops can ID Fetty as one of the suspects, he could still be arrested.

Fetty's reps have not returned our calls for comment.

'Bachelorette' Contestant

Hospitalized After ...

'Gang' Brawl

7/15/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0714_Jj-lane_black_eyes_4_twitterJJ Lane -- one of the so-called 'Brokeback Bachelors' from this season of The Bachelorette -- got ambushed by a gang of dudes waiting outside a cast and crew after-party.

The beatdown happened Saturday night when JJ was leaving the "Men Tell All" after-party. Production sources tell us he and a crew member got jumped by a group of at least 5 thugs.

It got ugly, real quick -- we're told JJ and the crew member took a few shots to the face, and the brawl continued until someone ran into the club to grab fellow contestant Ben Zorn. The hardbodied, badass jumped in and broke up the fight.

JJ suffered 2 black eyes, and his suit got shredded, but witnesses tell us he fought the good fight, considering the numbers. JJ believes the attackers were a gang, according to our sources. 

We're told he ended up in an ER because he was feeling ill, and friends were worried he had a concussion. For some reason, neither JJ nor anyone on the production chose to call cops about the brawl. 

JJ's only consolation -- he doesn't have to get engaged to Kaitlyn. She booted him 4 weeks ago. We hear Clint's still available.
