10/16/2017 6:44 PM PDT
Breaking News

Tom Petty was honored this week in a private service that appears to have been attended by only his family and closest friends ... at the same place a Beatle was laid to rest.

Tom's daughter, AnnaKim Violette Petty, posted a handful of photos from the service Monday, which was held at the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine in the Pacific Palisades. George Harrison's funeral was also held there in 2001. He was a bandmate of Tom's in The Traveling Wilburys.

We care about each other and love our bad ass father💜

Not many details about the procession were immediately released, but the temple was closed to the public on Monday. 

We broke the story ... Tom died earlier this month after going into full cardiac arrest ... and ultimately being taken off life support by his family. 

His official cause of death is still a mystery ... as the results of a complete autopsy are pending.

Elvis Presley's Co. Sued Screw Heartbreak ... You Run a Lung Disease Hotel!!!

10/16/2017 6:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Elvis Presley Enterprises runs a disease-infested hotel where the water is full of bacteria infiltrating guests' lungs ... according to a new lawsuit.

The company that runs all things Elvis has just been sued by Jennifer Walker, who says she stayed at the Guest House at Graceland this summer -- and contracted Legionnaires' disease during the vacay.

Walker says she spent a lot of time at the hotel pool and hot tub and started suffering symptoms of the chronic lung affliction -- such as coughing, difficulty breathing and loss of appetite -- and was diagnosed with Legionnaires' later that same month.

According to the suit, a county health department investigation of the hotel -- which is right next to Graceland -- found the sprinkler system tested positive for Legionnella bacteria.

There have been other deaths allegedly tied to an outbreak at the hotel, and EPE is already facing a wrongful death lawsuit.

Walker is suing for negligence and wants an unspecified amount in damages. To be clear, she is not suing Elvis' estate or the actual Graceland property.

Rodeo Champ Ty Murrray Gets Hitched Again Not My 1st Rodeo, Hopefully My Last!

10/16/2017 12:39 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jewel's rodeo champ ex-hubby, Ty Murray, is gettin' back on the horse ... when it comes to love and marriage.

Ty and FOX Sports reporter Paige Duke tied the knot September 30 at the Quarry at Carrigan Farms in North Carolina. They had the place decked out to be every cowboy/girl's dream.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Ty and Paige handed out homemade apple butter and personalized tobacco bottles as party favors to their 200 or so guests. Best of all, Ty and Jewel's son, Kase, was dad's best man.

And how's this for a real cowboy? Ty's wedding band was made out of elk antler and metal from his father's wedding ring. Paige went more traditional ... with a Cathy Waterman designed diamond ring.

Jewel did not attend, but since she once referred to her and Ty's split as "tender undoing of ourselves" ... we're guessing she's fine with this.

Nelly Rape Case Still Open for Cops After Accuser Backs Down

10/16/2017 11:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nelly's rape accuser refusing to testify doesn't change a thing for cops who are powering through with the investigation ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources in Washington State tell us police in Auburn are undeterred by the accuser's noncooperation with the investigation. We're told Auburn PD is still gathering evidence and plans to present the case to the prosecutor's office.

TMZ broke the story ... the alleged victim says she couldn't take the pressure of taking on a celebrity, and felt betrayed by police -- so she would not testify against Nelly. While her noncooperation makes the case more challenging, it's not impossible to prosecute.

We're told Auburn cops want to present the case to prosecutors soon -- within the next week.

Nelly's attorney, Scott Rosenblum, tells TMZ he's confident the case will be closed based on the evidence. He adds, "I would expect the police to do their due diligence."

Ultimately, it will be up to prosecutors to decide if Nelly's charged. Bottom line? Although he acted like a weight was lifted off his shoulders this weekend ... he's not off the hook yet.

T.I. to Nelly 'Put That Bulls*** Behind You!!!'

10/16/2017 8:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nelly is a king who should focus on being great again -- that's his pal, T.I.'s advice on the heels of Nelly's rape accuser refusing to testify.

Nelly performed in South Florida this weekend ... his first gig since getting arrested in Washington for rape. The after-party went down at Rockwell Nightclub, at around 3 AM Sunday he got onstage with T.I. ... who made it clear where he stands on the allegation against Nelly.

Earlier, Nelly performed at The Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach. The performance came just one day after his rape accuser said she was refusing to testify against him, and wants the matter dropped.

This look on Nelly's face during the show seems to say it all -- I'm moving on!

Liam Payne No Time For News ... I'm A Dad On Diaper Duty!

10/16/2017 6:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Liam Payne isn't up on current events because he's been too busy changing diapers and ain't ashamed to admit it.

We got the One Direction-er leaving Catch Sunday night. He and 'X Factor (UK)' judge Cheryl Cole welcomed their first kid, Bear, in March.

Liam didn't have much to say when it came to the recent Harvey Weinstein headlines and the tasteless joke his pal and late night host, James Corden, made at a recent LA charity gig about him. For those who missed it, Corden joked that watching Weinstein in hot water all week had been weird, and then threw the punchline "Ask any of the women who watched him take a bath, it's weird." Corden's since apologized.

Liam steered clear of the controversies but gave his 2 cents on being a proper dad. Sounds like he's got his hands full.

Jason Derulo Burglary Employee Slept While Safe Smashed And $680k Got Jacked

10/16/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jason Derulo's home burglary is looking less like a random crime and more like the perps had some help ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the suspected burglars pried a door open to get into Derulo's pad last month, and made a beeline for his safe. We're told they beat the crap out of it, got it open and escaped -- all while one of JD's employees slept in the house.

Cops say about $600k in jewelry and about $80k in cash were taken. Now, to be fair, we're told Rip Van Winkle -- aka the employee -- was dozing pretty far away from the smashed safe. Jason's got a big crib.

Still, we're told cops suspect an inside job.

Taylor Swift On a London Bridge ... That's Filming Now

EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift is back in action ... doing a music video in the UK.

Taylor was spotted filming a new video in London Saturday night, where she shot around a few different sets "Green Eggs and Ham" style ... on a double-decker bus, in a cab and on a bike atop the Millennium Bridge.

She's rumored to have been spending time in London recently -- even reportedly hosting a secret listening session for fans there to hear her new album, "Reputation," over the weekend.

Looks like the city's grown on her enough to wanna shoot there ... but not enough to be fully out in the open. You see her trying to avoid cameras with her crew ... and on the move. 

Until the next T-Swift sighting ...

10/15/2017 10:28 AM PDT
Breaking News

Tom Keifer had to cancel a concert this weekend 'cause he was rushed to a hospital -- but the good news is he's making it up to fans ... TMZ has learned.

The Cinderella frontman's rep tells TMZ ... Tom collapsed prior to his show Saturday in Warrendale, PA and was rushed to a hospital. Tests found he was experiencing severe dehydration and heat exhaustion ... which put him out of commission and kept him there overnight.

We're told docs found Tom to be in stable condition and he's been given fluids through the night. He's expected to be released from the hospital Sunday -- and even better ... he plans to revisit his show in Warrendale later this week.

Looks like he'll be back on solid ground soon enough. 

Lana Del Rey Don't Believe Your Ears ... My Sexy Song's Not About Weinstein

10/15/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lana Del Rey's 2012 track about preferring older men is NOT about Harvey Weinstein ... despite what people's ears are leading them to believe.

Lana's song, "Cola," features the lyrics ... "I got a taste for men who are older / It's always been, so it's no surprise," and is followed by the line, "Harvey's in the sky with diamonds and he's making me crazy" -- or so people think.

Even the top search results for the lyrics back up what people think, that the song references Harvey.  

Sources close to Del Rey tell us the song is not linked to Weinstein or any Harvey for that matter. They say the actual lyrics go this way ... "Ah he's in the sky with diamonds." We've checked the album's digital booklet ... and the lyrics reference "Ah he's," not "Harvey." 

Listen for yourself ... sure sounds like there's a "v" sound.

Drake Bell Quit Throwing Stuff, Punk Kids ... I Will Stop This Concert!!!

10/15/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Drake Bell got totally pissed off at a crowd of high schoolers who hurled balls at him -- then fired back at them with a tongue-lashing worthy of your old homeroom teacher.

The "Drake & Josh" star's band was rocking the Northwest School of the Arts in Charlotte when the crowd got restless, and cleaned out a nearby ball pit. Sources at the school tell us Drake opened with songs from his new album which nobody knew. Major party foul for the kids, who started firing the balls onstage.

The video's hysterical ... DB reached his boiling point while playing the "Drake & Josh" theme, and whipped a ball back at the crowd -- then stopped the show to shame them.

Future advice for Drake: play the hits, bro. Just the hits.

Nelly Rape Accuser Says She Will NOT Testify

10/13/2017 2:33 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4:20 PM PT -- Nelly's attorney Scott Rosenblum tells us ...the accuser's "reckless accusation, once investigated thoroughly, was exposed for what it was-a fabrication. A fabrication that has caused Nelly and his family to suffer emotionally and financially."

He's not satisfied though, and says he wants a public apology from the woman, and will recommend Nelly consider taking legal action against her.The woman who accused Nelly of rape is refusing to testify, and wants the whole matter dropped ... TMZ has learned.

The woman's attorney, Karen Koehler, says her client has told the Auburn PD in Washington State, and the King County D.A. to "put a halt to the criminal investigation of [Nelly]. She will not testify further in a criminal proceeding against him."

Koehler says the young woman feels the system has failed her and she can't stand up to a celebrity. "Who will believe her. People are saying horrible things already. She cannot handle this. She is about to break."

Koehler added ... the woman was especially dismayed by the fact police told the media she had met with them and prosecutors -- after she was assured no one would know about the meeting until the investigation was closed. 

TMZ broke the story ... the accuser told police Nelly raped her on his tour bus early last Saturday morning. He denied the allegation, and claimed she was motivated by greed, money and fame.

The woman's refusal to testify would make it difficult, although not impossible, for prosecutors to move forward with a case.
