EXCLUSIVE

The woman who called the cops on Chris Brown says the singer pulled a gun on her because she was admiring a piece of jewelry ... and afterwards his people demanded she signed a non-disclosure agreement. 

Baylee Curran appeared on "TMZ Live" and said she had partied with Chris in the past and he was always nice, but this time he appeared to be out of it ... on drugs or alcohol.

She says she came to his house with a friend, spent a little time in the hot tub, and then walked back inside where a member of Chris' crew was displaying jewelry. Baylee says when she admired one piece the guy went nuts, and then Chris followed suit by demanding she "get the f*** out" and pointed a gun at her.

The craziest part ... as she tried to leave she says Chris' people wouldn't let her take her cell phone until she signed a non-disclosure agreement. She refused to sign, and she and her friend left.

TMZ broke the story ... Baylee, Miss California Regional 2016, called 911 and that started the standoff with Chris. 

You can see the full interview on "TMZ Live."

"I never intended to offend anyone, I was trying to speak about my experiences as a African American. I apologize to anyone that I offended, wasn't meant to be hurtful to anyone. God bless."

"Last point I want people to know. I never even knew he was mixed."

Question is ... you buyin' it?

EXCLUSIVE

0822_Angel-Salazar_tmzAngel Salazar is coming up empty-handed in the child support department again ... and a judge just sicced the law on him with an arrest warrant.

Arizona cops are on the lookout for the actor, who played Chi Chi in "Scarface," for shorting his baby mama $1,100 back in January. He hasn't dropped a dime for the $5k a month obligation since July. 

Angel better not show his face in the Apache State anytime soon, 'cause it'll cost him $5,000 to get bailed out if he's arrested this time around.

Baylor Football Player PETA Demands Drug Tests, Counseling ... After Dog Abuse Vid

8/23/2016 8:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-ishmael-zamora-peta-getty-03PETA has declared WAR on the scumbag Baylor football player who beat up his dog -- calling for an immediate steroids test, claiming increased testosterone may have contributed to his violent rage.  

Sophomore wide receiver Ishmael Zamora has been under serious fire ever since footage surfaced from June showing him mercilessly whipping and kicking a small dog.  

0823-sub-Ishmael-Zamora-video-2Baylor interim coach Jim Grobe has said Zamora will be disciplined for his actions -- but the exact punishment is unclear. 

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are asking the school and the court system to drop the hammer. 

"PETA is calling for drug testing, since testosterone is particularly aggression-inducing, as well as psychiatric counseling and anger management, for everyone's sake, at his own expense," Stephanie Bell tells TMZ Sports.

"And he should be suspended and banned from ever owning animals again."

Bell -- PETA's senior director of cruelty casework -- is also praising Baylor for "recognizing that this man's behavior is dangerous to animals and that such a violent outburst against a defenseless individual does not bode well for his future."

Zamora has reportedly sent his dog to live with relatives since the incident.

Demi Lovato Sleigh Bells Sues Are Ya Listenin' Demi?

Breaking News

0820-demi-lovato-tmz-02Demi Lovato has been sued by the group Sleigh Bells for allegedly ripping off their critically acclaimed song, "Infinity Guitars."

Demi's song "Stars" -- released last year as a bonus track in her album "Confident" -- has "virtually identical content" to "Infinity Guitars" ... so claims the group. The lawsuit says, "The combination of the hand claps and bass drum, structured as 3 quarter beats and a rest ... is at least substantially similar in both works."

"Infinity Guitars," released in 2010, was a massive critically acclaimed hit, scoring in Rolling Stone as one of the best songs of the year.

Last November, producers said "We did not use any samples in Demi Lovato's song Stars. Demi was also not involved with the production. She only wrote top line."

Sleigh Bells wants some serious profits from Demi and the other defendants, and they want to yank her song from getting more play.

U.S. Olympic Committee All 4 Swimmers LIED to Us

8/19/2016 7:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0818-ryan-lochte-and-company-tmz-getty-04Ryan Lochte was not the only swimmer who lied to the U.S. Olympic Committee about the so-called "robbery." TMZ has learned all 4 of them told the same false tale.

An official from the USOC tells us the Committee interviewed Lochte as well as Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger Sunday and all 4 told the exact same lie -- that  they were in a cab when robbers posing as armed cops stopped their cab and demanded cash.

We're also told the 4 swimmers were interviewed individually, so they had clearly gone over their story beforehand.

TMZ reported Sunday ... an IOC official told us when they issued the initial denial of the incident occurred they were relying on the USOC, but the USOC official says they did indeed interview the 4 swimmers Sunday and they all told the story Lochte ended up telling on TV.

The USOC official says they are reviewing all the facts and will then determine what, if anything, to impose. 

Ryan Lochte I'm Sorry

8/19/2016 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0819-ryan-lochte-TMZ-01Ryan Lochte is finally doing a mea culpa for the lie he told on NBC that's become an international incident ... but he kind of doubled down on the version of events he told cops.

Lochte just posted ... "I want to apologize for my behavior last weekend -- for not being more careful and candid in how I described the events of that early morning and for my role in taking the focus away from the many athletes fulfilling their dreams of participating in the Olympics. I waited to share these thoughts until it was confirmed that the legal situation was addressed and it was clear that my teammates would be arriving home safely."

Lochte continues ... "It's traumatic to be out late with your friends in a foreign country - with a language barrier - and have a stranger point a gun at you and demand money to let you leave, but regardless of the behavior of anyone else that night, I should have been much more responsible in how I handled myself and for that I am sorry to my teammates, my fans, my fellow competitors, my sponsors, and the hosts of this great event." 

He goes on to say he's proud to rep the USA in Olympic competition and this was a situation that could and should have been avoided.

He adds, "I accept responsibility for my role in this happening and have learned some valuable lessons. I am grateful for my USA Swimming teammates and the USOC, and appreciate all of the efforts of the IOC, the Rio '16 Host Committee, and the people of Brazil who welcomed us to Rio and worked so hard to make sure that these Olympic Games provided a lifetime of great new memories."

"There has already been too much said and too many valuable resources dedicated to what happened last weekend, so I hope we spend our time celebrating the great stories and performances of these Games and look ahead to celebrating future successes."

The statement is clearly crafted to thwart police efforts to have Lochte prosecuted. The biggest problem the swimmer faces ... going on TV, trashing the city by claiming armed men posed as cops robbed him as he was innocently taking a cab back to the Village.
