Chief Keef Nearly Cracks Skull in Stage Fall ... Court Trouble Lurking?

2/24/2017 7:36 AM PST

Chief Keef took a leap onstage that turned into him taking a huge dive offstage ... and coming dangerously close to busting his ass and his head.

If not for the speedy reflexes of a dude working security, Keef would be in a hospital right now. As it is he survived to finish his show in Detroit Thursday night.

The bad news for the rapper is ... if he didn't get his ass on a jet right after the show he could be in big legal trouble. Keef's supposed to be in an L.A. courtroom Friday morning -- he's being arraigned robbery and assault charges for allegedly attacking a producer.

It's a felony, so he's gotta be there. If Keef misses the court date, he might wish he'd taken the dive -- at least he'd have a doctor's note.

Beyonce Bails On Coachella Doctor's Orders

Breaking News

0223-beyonce-coachella-INSTAGRAM-01Beyonce has just canceled her gig at Coachella ... because her pregnancy makes it just too dicey.

Bey cited "doctor's orders" as the reason for bailing on the festival, which is interesting. She performed at the Grammys less than 2 weeks ago, but was seated for most of it. Obviously, doctors don't think it would be wise to even attempt that kind of low-impact performance at Coachella 2 months from now.

As for the festival, sources tell us they are now looking for a replacement, and Beyonce says she'll be back to headline in 2018. Makes ya think ... she's probably planning to release new music between now and then. 

Silver lining?

Bankroll Fresh Video Shows Moments Before Deadly Gun Battle

2/23/2017 11:12 AM PST
Breaking News

Atlanta rapper Bankroll Fresh had an assault rifle in his hands and was ready for a major shoot-out seconds before getting shot and killed himself ... according to newly released video.

Atlanta PD released surveillance video Wednesday of the moments leading up to the massive gun battle last March ... after an altercation in a recording studio between himself and fellow ATL rapper No Plug.

Law enforcement sources tell us the rest of the video cannot be released due to its graphic nature. More than half a dozen firearms were involved.

No Plug has admitted to being involved in the shooting ... but claims it was all in self-defense. He has not been charged, and is a free man today.

Bankroll -- a close friend of 2 Chainz -- died at age 28. Cops continue to investigate the incident.

Justin Bieber I'm So Pissed!!!

We know Justin Bieber's pissed at The Weeknd ... but who knew it was literal?

Biebs was cruisin' along Wednesday in WeHo in $400 sweats that will now resell on eBay for either a lot more or a lot less.

His aim on the basketball court clearly doesn't translate.

EXCLUSIVE

Fabolous has put his money where his mouth is by dropping $40k to fix his teeth, and the before and after pics show it was worth every penny. 

Loso has rapped about the chip in his front tooth on 2001's “Right Now & Later On," and hinted he'd get it fixed, and that's just part of his dental woes.

He went full dental just before New York Fashion week and left with a set of 10 new veneers on his top grill.

NY dentist Mojgan Fajiram usually charges around $4k per veneer, so it definitely adds up. 

As for the timing... we're told Fab wanted to treat himself to a belated 39th birthday gift.

Sinead O'Connor I Was Wrong to Claim Arsenio Gave Prince Drugs

2/22/2017 5:39 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0222_arsenio-hall_sinead_oconnor_tmz-2Sinead O'Connor is issuing a full mea culpa for accusing Arsenio Hall of providing drugs to Prince, and saving her ass from a $5 million lawsuit in the process ... TMZ has learned.

Arsenio and Sinead tell TMZ, in a joint statement, "Sinead has retracted and apologized for statements she made about Arsenio last year, which prompted his defamation lawsuit against her."

TMZ broke the story ... Arsenio sued the crap out of the singer after she went on a rant -- weeks after Prince's death -- and accused him of fueling Prince's drug habit.

Sinead tells us, "I apologize for my Facebook posts about Arsenio to the extent that anyone thought I was accusing him of acting as Prince's drug dealer and supplying him with illegal hard drugs, or insinuating that Arsenio had something to do with Prince's death. I sincerely apologize because those statements would be false, and I retract them unequivocally."

Arsenio isn't spiking the football in victory -- his reps say he'll file to dismiss the lawsuit, now that Sinead's admitting she was wrong.

Sean Kingston Denies Jumping ... Migos Didn't Touch This Face!

2/22/2017 10:02 AM PST
Breaking News

Nothing about Sean Kingston's face says he got his ass whooped by Migos ... according to Sean.

Kingston just posted some video -- apparently at his hotel in Vegas -- showing off his mug and bragging, "You can't keep a good man down."

He never mentions Migos, but insists his face looks "smooth as motherf***ing ice."

Of course, the only thing this video really proves is Migos and co. don't hit that hard ... or Sean only bruises on the inside.

As we reported ... Kingston was cuffed by cops shortly after the fight and after one of Sean's friends allegedly fired a shot to break up the melee.

Sean Kingston was cuffed by Vegas cops shortly after he was allegedly beaten up bad by Migos.

As we reported, Sean got into verbal altercation with Migos at the Sands Expo and Convention Center Tuesday afternoon and the group allegedly pummeled him to the ground. We're told someone in Sean's camp fired a shot in the air but no one was hit.

Sean bolted from the scene, as did Migos. The video (above) shows cops questioning Sean and a passenger after cops stopped his car. We're told he was questioned but not arrested.

Earlier in the day, it was all kumbaya between Sean and Migos at the Venetian.

T-Pain Niece's Suspected Killer Found Dead

Breaking News

0222-t-pain-tmz-01The guy suspected of killing T-Pain's 23-year-old niece last year has been found dead in a wooded area close to the original crime scene, and cops suspect suicide.

The body of 25-year-old Tavon Jackson was found in Tallahassee Tuesday night. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ an officer found his body while searching the area in an unrelated case. We're told all preliminary signs in the investigation point to Tavon killing himself.

You'll recall ... T-Pain had reached out to the public for help last summer after his niece, Javona Glover, was stabbed to death while working at a Walgreens. Law enforcement had been looking for Jackson, reportedly Javona's ex-bf, ever since.

Sean Kingston Beaten By Migos Shot Fired

2/21/2017 8:29 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-migos-sean-kingston-3CSean Kingston was beaten up badly Tuesday and people on scene say Migos was the culprit ... but the story is bizarre and the group is not wanted by cops, at least not yet.

Law enforcement sources tell us it went down late afternoon at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Vegas. We're told Kingston and the guys from Migos got into it over an argument involving Soulja Boy and the 3 members of Migos beat Sean badly, allegedly kicking him and stomping on his head.

Law enforcement tells us someone from Sean's camp pulled out a gun and fired once, but didn't hit anyone. That person was detained by security and turned over to the Vegas PD.

By the time cops arrived both Sean and Migos had left. A short time later Sean was pulled over for a traffic stop and became "semi-cooperative," though he did not name names.

We're told police want to speak with Migos, but they are quick to add members of the group are not "wanted" by cops.
