But I'm Gonna Fix It

7/13/2014 10:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

071314_travis_barker_launchTravis Barker says he's finally gonna fix the tattoo on his leg that burned off in the 2008 plane crash that left 4 dead and Travis badly burned.

The Blink-182 drummer was talking tattoos on his way out of Brooklyn Projects in Los Angeles (confusing name, we know) ... and told us his plan for the area of burned off ink.

Travis has said in the past it was extremely painful to re-tattoo that part of his leg.

For those who don't remember ... Barker and DJ AM were the only two survivors when a private jet blew a tire while taking off and crashed into an embankment. The plane burst into flames.

update_graphic_red_barWe now know Paris' side and it's WAY different.  There were only 5 or 6 people at the house when Jeremy and a few of his friends just walked in without invitation.  They were unwelcome and Brandon Davis asked them to leave.  Jeremy went ballistic, saying, "Don't you know who I am?  I was on 'Baywatch' and 'Celebrity Rehab'."  

Jeremy then grabbed one of the guys and started choking him out, almost with superhuman strength. Several people jumped him to subdue him, and Jasmine Waltz hit him over the head with a vodka bottle.

Jeremy left and he and his friends broke something off Paris' car.  Barron Hilton was bleeding, got stitches and is still in the hospital.
update-grey-gray-bar
There was an all-out bloody brawl in Malibu early Sunday morning at Paris Hilton's house ... leaving a former "Baywatch" star a bloody mess ... TMZ has learned.

Jeremy Jackson says Paris, Brandon Davis and others viciously attacked him at around 2 AM ... someone cracking a liquor bottle on his head.  Jeremy says, "They were literally going Rodney King on my ass."

0713-baron-hilton-sub-instagram-03Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... they got a call from 2 people, each claiming they were attacked by the other.  Our sources say one of the 2 people was Paris Hilton's brother ... she has 2 and cops didn't know which.  We do know Barron Hilton was at the party.

We're told when cops arrived at Paris' $65K a month rental ... no one wanted to press charges so no one was arrested.

We have not been able to reach Paris or Brandon for comment.

Latin Pop Star Katherine Alexander

Claims Manager Raped, Sodomized Her

7/13/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0711-katherine-alexander-jesus-salas-getty-01An internationally famous Latin pop star claims the manager who discovered her went off the rails when she tried to break free, and got threatening and physical to the point of rape and sodomy.

Katherine Alexander
-- who recently hit the charts at #1 with the song, "Put it in a Kiss" -- was a school teacher just 2 years ago, when she met Jesus Salas ... who calls himself Zeus.  She says Zeus owned a record and management company, and quickly signed Alexander, promising fame.

Alexander says in a new lawsuit ... they began a romantic relationship but things quickly went South. She says Zeus was siphoning off almost all of the money she was earning and became extremely controlling.

Alexander says the relationship became difficult around the same time that her career took off, culminating in her #1 hit in April. Things were so hot she was signed to open for Enrique Iglesias.

Alexander claims she recently told Zeus she would not sign a new deal and that triggered a torrent of abuse, including forcing her to have sex against her will while she was ill, sodomizing her and placing a bag over her face and holding her down during an argument.  She says he also threatened to shoot her and her family.

Alexander says she's obtained a restraining order, forcing Zeus to stay 500 yards away.

An attorney for Zeus tells us all of Alexander's allegations are false, adding the claims only came up when the business side of their relationship went South.

Bobby Brown

In New Edition Concert Tour

EXCLUSIVE

Bobby Brown Quits New EditionBobby Brown has decided he just can't keep up with the boys ... because TMZ has learned he has now quit the New Edition tour ... for medical reasons.

Bobby was struggling to perform with his group in Mississippi last week ... huffing and puffing and eventually leaving the stage altogether.

071114_bobby_brown_launch_v3
Now Bobby's people tell TMZ ... the singer had "an intrusive medical procedure" and needed to go under the care of his doctor, making performing impossible.

We're told he was exhausted and fatigued and could not go through the motions on stage.

Bobby says, "I apologize to the fans of New Edition.  I really wanted to be with my brothers, but presently I am unable to give the fans what they typically expect from New Edition."

Renee Graziano

My Gruesome Ass Renovation

Exclusive Details

070914_rene_graziano_launch
"Mob Wives" star Renee Graziano got worked over HARD by a plastic surgeon -- while wide awake -- all in the pursuit of the perfect butt, and the video is a total train wreck ... centered on the caboose, of course. 

Graziano tells TMZ she sought out fat-sucking lipo doc Ayman Shahine to harvest gobs of fat from her butt and lower back to re-shape her ass. As we told you ... GG from "Shahs of Sunsetalso got a butt lift recently.

According to Doc Shahine, Renee's fat transfer took under 2 hours ... and he recorded it for a possible reality TV show.

Two highlights: Renee's groggy testimonial -- and the giant Italian moon that's about to hit your eye like a big pizza pie. 

It won't be Amore.

Kelly Osbourne

Paps Call BS

We Weren't Aggressive, She FELL!

7/10/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0709_kelly_osbourne_drunk_falling_pushed_photos_launch_v2Kelly Osbourne fell flat on her ass all by her lonesome ... and Kelly is full of crap when she says the paparazzi pushed her to the ground ... so claim the photogs.

Osbourne was photographed leaving a restaurant/bar in London Tuesday night with boyfriend Ricki Hall. The photos tell the story ... she ate it big time.

Kelly took to Twitter, claiming she got "pushed by paps." But the photogs on the scene tell us … she looked "a bit worse for wear" and slipped.  We're guessing the American translation for "worse for wear" has something to do with alcohol.

Maybe it's just a gravity thing.

Katt Williams

Stopped by Cops After Bizarre Taser Incident

7/8/2014 6:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

070814_katt_williams_launch
Katt Williams got pulled over in Malibu Tuesday evening by Sheriff's deputies investigating his security guard for tasing a random guy on Pacific Coast Highway, 

Law enforcement sources tell us the guy started kicking a car driven by Katt's assistant ... who was following Katt while he rode a Can-Am Spyder.  When Katt's security guard got out of the car ... we're told the stranger got aggressive, and the security guard zapped him with a taser.

The guy then waved down Sheriff's deputies in the area and explained what had happened. Deputies tracked down Katt ... pulled him over and questioned him and the guard about the incident.

We're told, as of now, no one's getting arrested -- not Katt's security guard or the guy he tased.

One of our photogs spoke to Katt on the side of PCH just a few moments after the incident, and his version jibes almost 100% with law enforcement.

He did add that the guy claimed to be a lifeguard, and hurled the n-word during the altercation.

Here's what's funny about this -- we initially got a tip that Rihanna had been pulled over on PCH. Turns out "Rihanna" was really just Katt's assistant ... who must be smoking hot.

Well played, Katt.

Bobby Brown

Count Me Out

I'm Breathless

7/8/2014 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

070814_bobby_brown_launch_v3
Mr. Telephone Man, there's something wrong with Bobby Brown ... he needs some oxygen … STAT.

New Edition performed in Mississippi last week and Bobby was so out of shape he bailed on his crew.

Watch the video closely, Bobby starts off OK … but then skips a move altogether. Then another. Then he just flat out stops, doubles over, and eventually walks off.

He needs a candy girl ... to get his blood sugar up.  Or he needs to stop smoking.

Rage Against The Machine

Bangers Are Always Gonna Bang

Even If Their Brains Bleed

7/8/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

070714_tim_commerford_launch_v3If you bang your head to rock music so hard that your skull fills with blood and doctors have to DRILL HOLES in it to save your life -- Rage Against The Machine's Tim Commerford not only has your back ... he says keep rocking!

We asked the Rage bassist about a German Motorhead fan who suffered a brain bleed -- which his doctors partially blamed on years of excessive headbanging -- and Tim doesn't think the horrific news will scare true headbanging fans. 

In fact, he says he's felt the same pain, telling us ... "Banger neck, yeah. Every time we played I got banger neck."

Of course, Tim never had to have HOLES DRILLED IN HIS HEAD ... like the Motorhead fan -- but watch him explain why that danger is just part of the show.

Hardcore.

Great White

Shark Attack

Insane Video

7/6/2014 6:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

070614_great_white_launch_v2
A great white shark attacked a swimmer in Manhattan Beach CA and it was all caught on video.

The 7-foot shark was struggling on the wrong end of a fishing line near the pier. Shortly before the attack, the fisherman tried in vain for 40 minutes to reel the shark in ... the shark was agitated when some long- distance swimmers unwittingly crossed its path.

As video rolled ... the great white attacked one of the swimmers. People on the pier where the video was shot initially didn't realize someone was injured but soon thereafter it became apparent and they screamed at the people in the water to swim for their lives.

The attack victim sustained moderate injuries to his torso and is in stable condition.

The fisherman eventually cut the line.

TMZ Sports got this video shot last month of a 6-foot great white near the shoreline of Manhattan beach, as paddle boarders circled it.

'Californication' Star

Smashes Car on Sunset Blvd.

EXCLUSIVE

070614_madeline_zima_launch_v2
"Californication" star Madeline Zima smashed her car into another vehicle on Sunset Blvd. Saturday night. 

Madeline rear-ended another car in West Hollywood.  It was bad enough that Zima's car had to be towed. 

No injuries to speak of.

Madeline's friends consoled her -- she was clearly shaken up. Our photog asked her what happened ... but the 28-year old wasn't in the mood to talk.  Maybe that was wise ... right to remain silent and all that.

USEFUL TIDBIT:  If you rear-end another car, you're pretty much screwed.  No defense.
