Can You Say, Final Nail?
7/22/2014 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
If Robin Thicke's begging ever works, and he actually gets back together with Paula Patton -- they'll be living somewhere new -- their Bel Air home is officially on the market.
TMZ has confirmed the 3,158 square foot home was listed Monday with an asking price of $2,985,000.
It was originally purchased by Robin's dad, Alan Thicke back in 1990 for a paltry $910,000 -- though we're told Robin's name is now on the deed.
We're told neither Paula or Robin has officially moved out of the 2-story crib -- with awesome views over Sunset Blvd -- though we know they haven't slept under the same roof since separating in February.
The pad includes a recording studio where Robin may have worked on songs like "Blurred Lines," "Lost Without You," and "Get Her Back" -- which he obviously hasn't.
The question: If you're a newlywed couple looking for a house -- would you dare?

In a Porn Star Paradise!!

Coolio is banking on a whole lotta ass making him a player in the music biz again -- he's teamed up with a porn website for his new music video ... and it's filled with wet t-shirts, garden hoses, twerking dinosaurs ... and even Coolio.
Coolio tells TMZ ... Pornhub.com agreed to provide all the "talent" for his video -- "Take it to the Hub" -- and in exchange he's going to debut all his new music on the website.
We're told Coolio and co. banged out the vid in about 5 hours at a house in Sherman Oaks, CA. The video's pretty funny ... for some reason the director had to remind Coolio and the girls, "Smile while you're doing this. Look like you're having a good time."
This is 50-year-old Coolio's first album since 2009.
Best part of the shoot -- featuring Jessica Bangkok, Missy Martinez and Skin Diamond -- the catering was provided by the nearest El Pollo Loco.
Ay, dios mio.
Charged with 4 CRIMES
D.A. Files Sexual Battery, Cops Disagree
7/21/2014 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The L.A. County D.A. has thrown the book at Ray J ... charging him Monday with 4 CRIMES in connection with his drunken antics last May ... and get this -- the D.A. charged Ray J with sexual battery even though cops say no such crime was committed.
Ray J was at a bar at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel when he got rowdy, brushed up against a woman's ass and was ordered to leave. Police told TMZ at the time it was NOT sexual battery because the contact was "incidental" -- not intentional. Apparently the D.A. begs to differ.
Ray J left the bar and then went nuts in an alcohol-fueled rampage. He was arrested, kicked out the window of a cop car and spit on an officer. Ray J told TMZ ... he kicked out the window because he was claustrophobic.
In addition to the misdemeanor battery charge, Ray J was charged with resisting arrest, assault and battery and vandalism ... all misdemeanors.
The Beach Boys NEVER Play
Their Charles Manson Song
7/22/2014 2:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
BACKSTORY: Dennis Wilson befriended Manson before he became famous for all the wrong reasons. Manson had written this song, which Wilson re-worked into "Never Learn Not to Love," which made it onto their early 1969 album "20/20."
Manson became manic after the release, bugging The Beach Boys to work with him again but he was so weird their producer Terry Melcher shunned him. Manson became enraged and the story goes ... the real target the night of the Tate murders was Melcher.
Melcher -- the son of Doris Day -- had rented the Tate house with then girlfriend Candice Bergen but moved weeks before the murders.
Monday night in New York, our photog asked Stamos -- who regularly plays with the band -- about the Manson track. It's clear from Stamos' answer ... it's a wild part of the band's history.
He Slapped Me, Now I'm Slapping His Wallet
... Says Concertgoer
7/21/2014 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A$AP Rocky allegedly slapped a female fan during a Philadelphia music festival ... and now she's dragging him into court with a lawsuit.
Lisamarie Wade claims the rapper hauled off and smacked her -- for no apparent reason -- as he made his way through the crowd last year -- knocking her to the ground and disorienting her.
In her docs, Wade claims the rapper has a long history of bad behavior ... including a similar incident two months before the Philly show ... in which he allegedly smacked a female fan in Australia.
TMZ broke the story ... Wade filed a private criminal complaint ... but eventually withdrew it when she couldn't locate him to serve him with the complaint.
Wade's already making a play for the heartstrings of a potential jury ... claiming Rocky's slap caused a string of ailments which interfere with her ability to "enjoy society with her minor child as a young, single mother." Well played, ma'am.
Wade is suing for damages of at least $75K. She called in to TMZ Live a few days after the alleged smackdown.
Drops Lawsuit Against 'Rape' Liar
7/21/2014 3:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bright Eyes singer Conor Oberst is letting the chick who falsely accused him of rape walk away clean -- he's decided to drop his $1.2 million lawsuit.
According to court docs filed Friday ... Conor dismissed the suit against Joanie Faircloth 4 days after she finally admitted she made up the whole story.
Incredibly gracious move on Conor's part ... considering he said the bad publicity created by Faircloth's lie cost him $200K from his publishing company. Not to mention she probably doesn't have the million bucks.
Conor's dismissal was filed without prejudice -- which means he could refile if more lies start flying out of Faircloth's lying liar face.

'Nobody feels good about it'
7/21/2014 11:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Tim McGraw is finally speaking out about slapping a female fan in the face during a concert after she ripped his jeans ... but he's leaving out one important detail.
McGraw spoke to ET Canada ... saying, "It happened in a split second, it was pure instinctive reaction, I think you just got to move on."
The country star added, "Nobody feels good about it, but there's nothing that could be done about it."
TMZ broke the story and got the video of McGraw laying the smack down during a concert in Atlanta.
But here's what he didn't address ... McGraw shakes the woman's hand off his pants, THEN hesitates and follows up by reaching down and smacking her in the face.
As far as the law is concerned ... cops in Atlanta side with Tim ... telling TMZ the slap was justified.
YouTube Star Michelle Phan
Responds to Song-Stealing Lawsuit
I HAD PERMISSION!!!
7/21/2014 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Michelle Phan had every right to use the music she had in her wildly famous YouTube makeup videos ... because the company that owned the rights said she could ... at least her lawyers claim they did.
As TMZ previously reported, Ultra Records -- home to EDM giants Deadmau5, Kaskade, Calvin Harris, and many more -- sued Phan for copyright infringement ... claiming she stole dozens of their songs for her videos.
But Phan's lawyers tell TMZ ... Ultra fully agreed to allow Phan to use the music and feels her videos have promoted their music and "showcased [them] to an international audience."
Phan's legal team says Phan plans to file a lawsuit of her own.
For his part, Kaskade has taken to Twitter to defend Phan, writing over a series of tweets ... "I’m not suing @MichellePhan + @ultrarecords isn’t my lapdog. I can’t do much about the lawsuit except voice support for her."
Loud Partying Could Trigger

Justin Bieber is playing with fire after cops responded to complaints at his Beverly Hills condo 6 TIMES over the weekend ... and his freedom is literally on the line.
Cops received 4 separate complaints for loud music and partying on the roof top Saturday night and they sent patrol cars each time -- at 8:30 PM, 12:50 AM, 1:50 AM and 3:00 AM. We're told Bieber was not cited because he agreed to turn the music down.
There were 2 other incidents involving disturbances with fans and paparazzi.
Here's what's so significant ... Bieber is currently on 2 years probation for egging his neighbor's house. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... if the Bev Hills PD cites Bieber ... they will forward the matter to the L.A. County Probation Dept., which could trigger a probation violation and then he's in jail territory.
Cops have responded to numerous incidents involving Bieber at the condo over the last month ... incidents involving both noise and weed.
