Prince Cops Search Singer's Pharmacy for Clues

6 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

428-prince-gettyAuthorities descended on a Walgreens near Paisley Park and served a search warrant on the pharmacy, looking for a prescription paper trail that could unravel the cause of Prince's death.

It's the same drug store where Prince made 4 Rx runs in the week leading up to his death.

We're told investigators made their move Thursday. Once inside, they beelined it for the pharmacy and spent several hours combing through records.

As we reported, authorities are especially interested in Percocet ... the drug that triggered a near-fatal OD 6 days before Prince's death. They're also looking for other prescriptions in Prince's name or identifiable aliases.

We're told investigators are also targeting other pharmacies and doctors who may have helped Prince procure meds.

Drizzy also weighs in on Lil Wayne and Birdman's beef. Check it out ... he's trying to keep it positive, but you can tell major damage has been done. 

Prince 'Friendly' Doctor Prescribed Powerful Drugs

4/29/2016 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42716-prince-gettyPrince was able to get his supply of prescription drugs from more than one doctor ... and at least one of them was a "personal friend" of Prince ... this according to members of the singer's family.

TMZ broke the story ... Prince developed an addiction to Percocet sometime before his hip surgery in 2010, and almost died from an overdose 6 days before his death.

What's significant ... Percocet is a controlled substance, and a single doctor who prescribes an excessive number of pills will be flagged by state and federal authorities. As a result, as in Michael Jackson's case, someone addicted to a drug who needs more than the medically necessary amount will doctor shop.

As we reported, Prince went to a local Walgreens pharmacy 4 times in the week he died to fill prescriptions. Our sources say authorities are on the hunt for the various doctors who prescribed and pharmacies that filled Prince's prescriptions. We're told authorities are also interested in possible aliases the singer might have used. 

As for at least one of the doctors being friends with Prince, it may have shades of Michael Jackson. In Jackson's case, a number of doctors crossed the line by prescribing drugs that were not medically necessary, in order to ingratiate themselves with the singer.

0429_french_montana_selena_Gomez_house_launchFrench Montana just scored with Selena Gomez ... he bought her Calabasas home for $3.3 million ... $150k under the listing price.

Selena, repped by the Altman Brothers, put the Mediterranean pad on the market last year after stalkers kept showing up.

The 5 bedroom, 6 bath home is in the same neighborhood where French's ex Khloe Kardashian lives, which makes this an interesting move on his part.

Check out the pics -- this place screams summer party. Good timing, French!

Lenny Kravitz & Naomi Campbell Date Night ... With a Side of Bird Poop

4/29/2016 7:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Naomi Campbell and Lenny Kravitz were the hottest couple in Hollywood Thursday night ... and the chaos in this video proves it.

The duo was connected at the hip as they left The Nice Guy, where Gigi Hadid had her birthday party -- and earlier in the night they were all hugged up at Naomi's event for her new book. Btw, the photo book retails for $1,750!

But you gotta see this video because ... if they're not REALLY a couple, they're doing a REALLY good job acting like it. Also, how cool is Lenny? Who else could get Naomi to ride shotgun in an old jeep blanketed in massive amounts of bird crap?

Only Lenny.

Taylor Swift Run-In with John Mayer ... Y'know What Happens Next

4/29/2016 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You can already hear it ... Taylor Swift's #1 song about bumping into your ex at a BFF's birthday, that won't have anything to do with seeing John Mayer Thursday night.

The exes both showed up at Gigi Hadid's huge 21st birthday bash at The Nice Guy. We don't know for sure if they spoke, but we know the place is small enough that they had to at least be aware of each other's presence.

Luckily for them there were a ton of celebs inside to create a buffer.

Still ... the song will be awesome.

Prince Sister Storms Out of Family Meeting Money Fight Looms

4/28/2016 3:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-prince-tyka-getty-ap-01It didn't take long ... Prince's sister Tyka went ballistic in the first meeting with the singer's siblings and marched out of the room ... and we're told it's already becoming a money squabble.

Sources with first-hand knowledge tell TMZ, the meeting was held Thursday in Minnesota. Tyka, Prince's younger sister, was present, along with brothers Alfred and Omarr

We're told the meeting was tense, and 2 hours in Alfred expressed his displeasure that he was the only sibling excluded from Prince's memorial service, which Tyka planned. We're told an argument erupted and she stormed out of the room.

We're also told the brothers have a clear impression from the meeting ... Tyka thinks she's entitled to more than them when it comes time to divide Prince's assets. As we reported, under Minnesota law all 6 siblings -- irrespective of whether they're half or full -- share equally, but apparently Tyka doesn't see it that way.

Our sources say after Tyka left, a rep from the bank that was appointed as the administrator took Alfred on a tour of Prince's home and the area where he died "so he could properly grieve."

Prince Came So Close to Becoming the Purple Piano Man

Exclusive Details

42616-prince-piano-gettyThe customized piano Prince played at his final public performance was thiiis close to getting him to do something he almost NEVER did ... sign a big time endorsement deal.

Yamaha exec, Chris Gero, tells TMZ the company started negotiations with Prince's reps 4 months ago. The plan was for Yamaha to provide instruments and round-the-clock service for the remainder of Prince's "Piano & A Microphone" tour.

Yamaha sent Prince a $200,000 purple grand piano a few days before he died in hopes of closing the deal -- and it seemed to be working. Prince excitedly tweeted about it, and had it onstage with him when he played briefly during his Paisley Park dance party on the Saturday before his death.

Gero says all signs were pointing to them closing the deal when Prince died.

As for what happens to the piano? Yamaha owns it -- since the deal was never inked -- and it's still at Paisley Park. Gero says they've already been contacted by several museums -- including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame -- looking to lock down Prince memorabilia.

NBA's Andre Drummond I Partied With Bieber Too ... 'He's a Cool Dude'

EXCLUSIVE

Nothing takes the sting out of being swept in the playoffs like a Justin Bieber concert ... so says NBA superstar Andre Drummond

The Detroit Pistons star was at LAX -- proudly displaying his VIP backstage pass to Bieber on his backpack from his concert in Michigan on Monday night ... one day after the Pistons were eliminated. 

"He's a cool dude," Drummond told us. 

AD also says Bieber put on one helluva show -- but it wasn't perfect ... he's still got some room to grow. 

As for the rest of Andre's off-season plans -- don't worry Detroit, Drummond says he'll come back even STRONGER next season. 

DJ Whoo Kid Lights Out, No License ... Arrested in NYC

4/28/2016 12:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

428-djwhookid-tmzDJ Whoo Kid got pulled over by cops for driving in the dark ... without his headlights, and things quickly went downhill from there 'cause he ended up getting arrested.

Whoo Kid was driving his Escalade in downtown Manhattan, around 1:30 AM Tuesday, when cops noticed his headlights were off. They also discovered his driver's license had been revoked, and there was a warrant for his arrest -- so, off to jail he went.

The Shade 45 and G-Unit DJ had a similar run-in with cops in 2014, but failed to show up for court ... hence the warrant.

Cops say he paid a fine and was released later on Tuesday.

Whoo Kid tells us he didn't realize there was a warrant out for his failure to appear in the 2014 case, since he paid the ticket. He has a June court date for this latest arrest.

Usher Naked Selfie ... Just The Tip Of The Iceberg

4/28/2016 12:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0428-usher-nude-shower-snapchat-05Usher just broke the cardinal rule of taking a naked selfie by posting a tad bit more than he probably realized on Snapchat.

Ursh snapped the pic Thursday and captioned it "blowin off steam" with an emoji covering his junk. Upon closer look it was hard to ignore that the emoji failed to cover all of his man parts and the tip of his dong was left sticking out.

We had to retouch it a bit since it's technically a d*** pic, but you can use your imagination and probably Google and find the real thing.

It doesn't appear he did it on purpose, but if he did, he's sending the message that size matters.

Lil Wayne No 'Respek' ... Chillin' with Birdman Foes!

4/28/2016 9:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

428-lil-wayne-instagramLil Wayne put ZERO 'Respek' on Birdman's name by hanging out with Rick Ross and Trick Daddy -- 2 of the guys who prompted Birdman's infamous rant.

Weezy and co. posed together in Miami right before Beyonce took the stage to kick off her tour. We don't know if the middle finger was intended for Cash Money's honcho, but he's gotta be taking it that way after his 'Breakfast Club' blowup over a lack of respek.

Remember, Charlamagne Tha God reminded Birdman that Ricky Rozay and Trick Daddy were also dissing him ... before he stormed out of the studio.

Wayne and Birdman seemed to be patching things up personally -- although they're still at war, legally -- but this pic won't help.
