Chris Brown Stay Away From Me And No, I Won't Eat Your ...

8 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF

505-chris-brown-tmz-2Chris Brown wants to be 100% clear ... he has NO relationship with the woman who keeps getting busted at his home, and he's fed up with her yelling demands for sexual favors.

Chris has been in a standoff with Danielle Patti since she first got arrested for trespassing at his home in December. In new docs, Chris says she continues to harass him -- getting busted a second time and even filing a restraining order against him.

Chris describes quite the scene on at least one of Patti's unwanted visits. According to the docs, she shouts things like, "Chris are you going to eat my p****" and "I love you." He says it's clear she's delusional about having a relationship with Chris.

He was granted a temporary restraining order, forcing her to stay 100 yards away from Chris and one of his bodyguards.

Patti is currently locked up in county jail after a trespassing arrest last month at Chris' place.

2 Chainz Justin Bieber Got N-Word Status ... But Killed My Fave Sizzurp

5/5/2016 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

2 Chainz is blaming Justin Bieber for getting his codeine cough syrup of choice yanked off shelves -- but he's also giving the Biebs full hood status ... by accident.

The rapper joined the Drink Champs podcast with N.O.R.E and DJ EFN and openly talked about his lean habit, and bemoaned the fact his favorite brand, Actavis, is no longer for sale.

Chainz thinks JB, and a few others, are responsible for the drug's demise -- but watch what happens when he starts backing up the bus.

If this is true ... Bieber better get used to getting pulled over. 


Arsenio Hall Sues Sinead Over Prince Rant She's a Lying Attention Whore

5/5/2016 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0505-hall-oconner-tmz-01Arsenio Hall just clapped back at Sinead O'Connor with a $5 MILLION defamation lawsuit over her claim he was fueling Prince's habit.

His lawyers, Marty Singer and Lynda Goldman, filed the suit Thursday morning, in which Arsenio calls Sinead a "desperate attention-seeker" for posting an incendiary rant on Facebook earlier this week. She called Prince a "longtime hard drug user" who got his supply from "Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince's and Eddie Murphy's bitch)."

In the suit, Arsenio flat out denies ever supplying Prince with illegal drugs -- and adds, he hasn't had contact with Sinead for 25 years. He also denies spiking her with drugs back in the day ... as she claimed.

As for why she targeted him -- Arsenio says she's repeatedly said she met Prince a couple times and she "detested" him. She also says she told Prince "to go f*** himself."

Arsenio implies this is par for the course with Sinead, saying she is "well known for her media antics and for seeking attention through inflammatory Facebook posts."

Snoop Dogg Agrees to Rap Collab with NFL Star ... Holla At Me!

5/5/2016 11:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Snoop Dogg is about to make Le'Veon Bell's rap dream come true -- telling TMZ Sports he's absolutely down to blaze a track with the Steelers running back ... but there's a catch. 

FYI, Bell isn't just a beast on the field -- he's also pretty good on wax ... with his mix tape racking up more than 100k plays on SoundCloud

In fact, the last time we got Bell out, he told us he was trying to make a collab with Snoop happen -- since he's not just a rap legend, but a hardcore Steelers mega-fan. 

Well, good news ... we just got Snoop and he says he's into the idea -- as long as Le'Veon gets his legs healthy!  

You're welcome. 

Prince Overprescribing Drugs Focus of Criminal Investigation

5/5/2016 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

502-prince-gettyAuthorities in Minnesota have made the overprescribing practices of Prince's doctors the focus of their investigation ... sources connected with the case tell TMZ.

We're told the criminal probe has zeroed in on a drug that almost killed Prince 6 days before his death -- Percocet. TMZ broke the story, EMTs gave Prince a "save shot" at the Moline airport after his plane made an emergency landing.  

We're told law enforcement in Minnesota is looking at 3 possible abuses ... multiple doctors who overprescribed meds to the singer, aliases the singer and his doctors may have used, and multiple pharmacies that filled the prescriptions.

As we reported, Prince had prescriptions filled at least 4 times in the 7 days before he died, and at least one of the pharmacies was 6.1 miles from his home ... much farther than 8 other drug stores.

The DEA announced it is now involved in the investigation, but we're told the agency is only on standby and for now it's a state case.

50 Cent Donates $100k To Autism Speaks

5/5/2016 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

505-50-cent-andrew-farrell-0350 Cent just went above and beyond to make good with the 19-year-old man he mocked on social media -- he's donated $100,000 to Autism Speaks ... TMZ has learned.

Fiddy referred to the video he posted of Andrew Farrell, saying, "I want to turn this misunderstanding into an understanding. There are people that are ignored, mistreated and neglected with disabilities that need our support."

Farrell's family had asked him to donate $10k to the autism advocacy group -- so ya can't say 50 did the bare minimum in making his mea culpa.

The rapper added, "I am calling on my fellow musicians, actors, entertainers and all others who may not have fully considered this cause to join together to help in any way they can."

Michael Buble Watch Me Punk This TMZ Photog!

5/5/2016 10:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Buble can add acting chops to his resume ... 'cause the beloved crooner pulled a cruel, cold-blooded and HYSTERICAL prank on one of our photogs!

We spotted the singer walking around Bev Hills, and asked him about fellow singer Josh Groban possibly replacing Michael Strahan on 'Live.' Buble was NOT in the mood to talk ... or so it appeared.

The video is so awesome ... it almost makes up for Buble's recent corn on the cob fiasco, which he tried to explain away to our guy.


Prince 911 Caller May Have Big Criminal Issues

5/5/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

504-prince-andrew-kornfeldThe man who called 911 in Prince's death could face criminal prosecution if he was expecting to get paid for helping the singer ... and it all comes down to the pills in his backpack.

The lawyer for Andrew Kornfeld -- whose dad runs a rehab facility in Marin County, California -- says his client is entitled to immunity from prosecution because he was acting as a Good Samaritan.  

The issue -- Andrew had a synthetic opiate in his backpack, and he's not a doctor. Our sources say investigators are keenly interested in knowing why Andrew brought the pills. They are often used to wean people off drugs like Percocet -- the opiate which fueled Prince's addiction.

Andrew's attorney points to a Minnesota law that protects people who might be committing drug crimes from being prosecuted if they call 911. The idea is to give people an incentive to help others in dire need without fear of prosecution.

Here's the problem. Under the law, the person who calls 911 does NOT get immunity if they receive or expect to receive compensation for picking up the phone and making the call. It's unclear if Andrew and his dad were going to get paid, but the recovery center charges for its services, so it's a good bet they were expecting compensation.

As for the drugs in the backpack ... even if Andrew's dad prescribed the drug for Prince, our DEA sources say it's illegal for anyone to take the drugs across state lines and deliver drugs in states where the doctor is not board certified.


Paul McCartney Let's Go Crazy-ish On Prince's Turf

5/5/2016 7:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paul McCartney stopped short of punching a higher floor when he paid homage to Prince during a concert in Minneapolis Wednesday night.

Sir Paul was playing the Target Center when he launched into "Let's Go Crazy."

Paul and his band jammed through the tune, and the crowd went nuts ... but something was missing through most of it -- Paul's vocals.

Check it out ... McCartney ain't looking for no purple bananas, but you know Prince would still dig this tribute. After all, he loved him some Beatles tunes.


Fred Durst Selling His Hollywood Hills Nook-ie

5/5/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0502_fred_durst_house_launchLimp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst is ditching the Hollywood Hills home he barely owned for a year.

Durst bought the 3 bedroom, 3 bath home in December 2014 for $1.5 million. Now, he's put it back on the market for $1.625 million, so at least moving costs will be covered if he makes a profit.

The home is in the famed Beachwood Canyon 'hood -- a celeb fave -- and the big draw is the outdoor courtyard with fireplace. Inside ... check out the wine cellar ... it could use some work though.

No word on where Durst is moving -- he's pretty good at keeping big secrets

Breaking News

Mick Jagger doesn't give a rat's ass how many delegates Donald Trump's secured, he and the Rolling Stones are putting the kibosh on their music getting played at Trump rallies.

The Stones fired off a cease and desist letter to the campaign requesting they "cease all use immediately" ... according to a statement from the band's rep.

Trump used their hit "Start Me Up" as his intro music during several Indiana campaign stops this week -- and clearly word got back to the Stones' legal team. The Donald's also used "You Can't Always Get What You Want" in the past.

Candidate Trump's heard this tune before -- Neil Young, Aerosmith, Adele and others have also asked Trump to delete their music from his playlists ... and he's always complied.


Janet Jackson It's the Pregnant Principle ... 50 and Expecting!

Breaking News

504-janet-jackson-instagramJanet Jackson's finally confirmed what's been pretty clear since she pulled out of her world tour -- she's knocked up.

Janet and her husband, Wissam Al Mana, are expecting their first child, according to ET. Janet, who will turn 50 on May 16, announced a month ago that she was indefinitely postponing the 'Unbreakable Tour' because she was "planning" her family.

She stopped short of saying she was pregnant at the time, but it was clear the "sudden change" had to be something that big for her to scrap the long-planned tour.

It's unclear how far along she is, but if you assume she's at least 3 months pregnant -- it'll probably be summer 2017 before Janet and her fans are ... Together Again.
