Exclusive Details

Lil Yachty's crew got into a brawl at SXSW ... with themselves.

We got video of Yachty's bodyguard beating down a guy who is part of the rapper's entourage ... or at least he was. The fight went down Friday at the Omni Hotel in downtown Austin.

The clip starts with punches being thrown and Yachty standing nearby and watching the action unfold.

Law enforcement sources tell us police responded to a disturbance at the Omni, and say they investigated a fight in the lobby.

For what it's worth ... another member of Yachty's crew tried to intervene, but ultimately hotel management broke it up.

Justin Bieber Does This Thing Go Any Faster?

3/20/2017 10:03 AM PDT

0320-justin-bieber-boat-ride-MEGA-02Justin Bieber was so totally unimpressed by something called "the world's most exciting jet boat ride" -- and it was written all over his face.

The Biebs had Monday off from his tour and hopped on a Shotover Jet in Queenstown, New Zealand. The high-speed boat hits 50 mph while careening and doing 360 turns. If that sounds like it'd be tons of fun ... it probably is, unless you're Justin.

Occupational hazard for a guy who drives exotic sports cars, we guess. 

JB rented out the entire boat for himself and his 2 pals, so at least he was bored in private.

Chuck Berry Died of 'Natural Causes' No Autopsy

EXCLUSIVE

0321-chuck-berry-getty-2Chuck Berry died from natural causes ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Berry's personal doctor will sign off on the death certificate that the cause of death was natural, and there will be no autopsy. By the way, various diseases would still classify the cause of death as "natural."

Police responded to a medical emergency Saturday at Berry's home 45 miles from St. Louis. Attempts to resuscitate the 90-year-old legend were unsuccessful.

Chuck was a pioneer for rock 'n' roll in both style and sound. He had a string of hits through his long, decorated career including "Johnny B. Goode," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Maybellene" and tons more.

RIP

D.L. Hughley F*** Respecting Office of President ... He Doesn't Respect Us!

3/20/2017 7:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

D.L. Hughley says Steve Harvey is dead wrong about Snoop Dogg, and other entertainers, showing Donald Trump R-E-S-P-E-C-T ... because the prez doesn't know how to spell it.

D.L. told us at LAX ... that old adage about how the public should treat a sitting president just doesn't apply anymore. His pal, Steve, warned Snoop his "Lavender" music video is crossing a dangerous line.

But in D.L.'s eyes ... Trump's only getting what he's giving.

Nelly Chuck Berry Was a Legend! His Best Song ... Uhhhhhhhh

3/19/2017 7:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nelly has mad respect for the late Chuck Berry ... but the dude can't name a single song!

We got the St. Louis rapper leaving Bootsy Bellows Saturday night -- who shares the same hometown as Chuck -- and he eulogized the rock 'n' roll legend pretty poetically ... until our camera guy asks him to name his favorite Chuck Berry song.

You gotta see Nelly's reaction. But let's be honest ... stuff like this has happened to all of us.

For the record ... Chuck's most famous song "Johnny B. Goode" was included on the Voyager Golden Records, which were launched into space in '77. So  ... there's that. 

Selena Gomez Don't Even Dare Call Yourself By My Name

3/19/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0320-selena-gomez-the-weeknd-PCN-01Selena Gomez wants to be the only Selena Gomez in entertainment ... period.

Selena has filed legal docs asking for the right to market jewelry ... which we get. But the docs go on ... she wants to make sure no one can do a live TV or movie appearance or distribute music with the name Selena Gomez.

She also wants a lock on Selena Gomez "fan club services," although we assume that doesn't mean people can't start a Selena Gomez fan club ... just not on behalf of a different Selena Gomez.

So, all you Selena Gomez wannabees ... don't even think about it.

Chuck Berry Dead at 90

3/18/2017 3:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

0318-chuck-berry-getty-5Chuck Berry, not just a legend of rock 'n' roll -- but one of its inventors -- died Saturday outside St. Louis.

St. Charles County police responded to a medical emergency call and found Berry unresponsive. They performed CPR, but weren't able to resuscitate him and he was pronounced dead at 1:26 PM. Police have not released a cause of death.

Berry's amazing string of hits -- "Johnny B. Goode," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Maybellene" and many many more -- helped define the rock 'n' roll sound in the '50s and '60s. His music heavily influenced the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton ... pretty much anyone in rock who picked up an electric guitar after Chuck did.

Chuck was famous for busting out his signature "duck walk" during live shows. If you haven't seen his documentary, 'Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll' ... do yourself a favor and stream it tonight.

He was one of the first Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees in 1986, and Rolling Stone magazine ranked Berry 6th on its list of greatest guitarists.

Chuck Berry was 90.

Justin Bieber Mum's the Word on Headbutt Case ... Rolling Dice with D.A.

3/18/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0317-justin-bieber-tmzJustin Bieber ain't singing to the cops about his alleged headbutting of a guy at a pre-Grammy party, and now the case is about to land on the District Attorney's desk.

Sources close to Justin tell TMZ he hasn't said a word to cops about the misdemeanor battery case where he's accused of going off on a guy for shooting video of him "play fighting" with Kyle Massey. We're told the Biebs plans to stay radio silent and take his chances with the D.A.'s office.

The move could work in Justin's favor -- the only evidence appears to be video which doesn't clearly show the attack. Plus, as we've reported ... the alleged victim doesn't want to press charges

Law enforcement sources tell us the case looks thin, but the D.A. will make the final call.

Birdman Pissed at Rick Ross ... He's Using Me to Sell Records

3/17/2017 2:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0317-rick-ross-birdman-tmz-2Rick Ross made a new enemy when he took aim at Birdman ... dissing him hard over his legal war with Lil Wayne and a bunch of other stuff. 

Sources close to Birdman tell TMZ ... he's pissed Rick dragged his name through the mud in his song "Idols Become Rivals." We're told Baby doesn't appreciate the disrespect, especially because he sees the track as a lame publicity stunt.

It's harsh stuff, for sure. Rozay's lyrics include, "Catholic record labels, n***** gettin' raped, boy / Birdman's a priest, moans in his synagogue." The song also touches on Birdman's dealings with WayneDJ Khaled and claims he doesn't pay his artists or own his cars.

As for the song being a stunt? Rick does have a new album, "Rather You Than Me" ... so he'll clearly benefit from generating beef. 

Bottom line: Birdman feels Rick stepped out of line, and needs to put some respeck on it!

J Lo Legs Out Date Night with A-Rod

3/17/2017 9:06 AM PDT

0317-jlo-arod-akm-miamiJennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are going to be together for a very loooong time -- if opposite wardrobes attract.

J-Rod stepped out for a dinner date in Miami Thursday night, and J Lo made sure to showcase her dancer's legs in a BIG way. A-Rod, on the other hand, was rocking his finest preppy dad threads.

BTW, they left from the same house, seconds apart ... still making sure to NOT be photographed next to each other. Probably a good idea for Alex.
