Will Smith Makes Surprise Visit to LAPD

7/30/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-will-smith-tmz-01Will Smith turned more than a few heads when he made a couple unscheduled stops at LAPD stations last week, but we've learned he meant business when he arrived.

Sources close to the actor tell TMZ, Will showed up last week at 2 stations -- including the Wilshire division -- to do a little homework for his cop role in the upcoming thriller "Bright." While he was there, we're told he personally thanked the boys in blue for their hard work.

Law enforcement sources tell us the visits -- he also hit up LAPD's downtown HQ -- were great for morale ... especially in light of recent tensions.

We're told Big Willie did his research for the role, took a few pics ... then bounced.

Lindsay Lohan She Pulled a $10k Insta Rip-Off On Me ... Filmmaker Claims

7/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-lindsay-lohan-tmz-01Lindsay Lohan's got more than fiancé trouble ... a filmmaker is going after her for the $10,000 he claims he gave her without getting a damn thing in return.

Matt Martin made a movie called "Little Mermaid," not the Disney one, and approached a Lindsay associate about having her pump the flick to her nearly 5 million Instagram followers.

Matt says in the legal letter, obtained by TMZ, he struck a deal with Yossi Bechor back in October after learning he often arranged deals on Lindsay's behalf. He says the deal was $10k and executive producer credit ... for LiLo to post 3 promos for his film, but 3 months rolled by without a peep.

Martin says he's reached out to team Lindsay and Yossi several times to no avail. So now he's demanding he get the dough back, or he'll sue.

We reached out to Lindsay and Yossi, so far no word back.

0727-casting-call-tmzBeing a Blood or a Crip is now a legitimate qualification for employment, because a new show is actively seeking real-life bangers who want to be TV stars.

Atlantic Records Search Is On for Soundtrack Leaker

7/26/2016 1:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-suicide-squad-album-Atlantic-Records-01Atlantic Records wants the identity of the person who leaked a song off the "Suicide Squad" soundtrack, and it's demanding Reddit help find the culprit.

In docs, Atlantic says it sent a few digital copies of the Twenty One Pilots track "Heathens" to a tight-knit group ... roughly a week before it was scheduled to drop to the public.

The recipients included the band and several label execs, but the following day the track surfaced online. Atlantic says someone uploaded it to Dropfile.io, then shared the link on Reddit.

Atlantic says it was ultimately forced to release the song later the next day, and therefore lost revenue since the planned marketing campaign was still a week away.

They want the court to issue a subpeona to Reddit to identify the users who posted the track.
