11/28/2014 9:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1128_ryan_knight_getty"Real World" star Ryan Knight's autopsy was completed Friday morning ... and no immediate cause of death was found -- but police say he had been complaining about stomach issues.

Police in Kenosha, WI say they attempted to revive Knight when they arrived at his friends home yesterday morning ... but they were unsuccessful. They say there were no obvious signs of injuries to Knight -- but according to Knight's father he had complained about stomach issues in the past 2 days. 

Cops also say no drugs were found on scene ... even though they were told he had been "partying hard" the night before.

As we previously reported ... Knight was out Wednesday night with a bunch of people and ended up at a friend's house where he was discovered dead and covered in vomit. Friends tell us he had taken "some pills" but they were not specific.

Police say Knight's cause of death will have to wait until they get toxicology results ... because no "anatomical cause of death” was found.

Janay Rice

Finally Speaks Out

Blasts Ravens, Defends Ray Rice

11/28/2014 1:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1128-janay-ray-rice-getty2-2

Janay Rice has finally broken her silence about the ENTIRE Ray Rice elevator saga ... from the fight to the cover up to the reason she decided to NOT divorce the NFL star.

Janay spoke with ESPN on November 5th in an interview that the network agreed to hold until after the U.S. District judge issued their ruling on the NFL's actions.

In the interview, Janay says she doesn't remember what she and Ray were fighting about in Atlantic City back in February ... but says she does remember Ray got physical first.

"As we were arguing, he was on his phone and not looking at me. I went to reach for his phone, and when he grabbed it back, he spit at me and I slapped him."

On Apologizing for Her Role in the Incident at Ravens News Conference:

" I know some people disagreed with me publicly apologizing. I'm not saying that what Ray did wasn't wrong. He and I both know it was wrong. It's been made clear to him that it was wrong. But at the same time, who am I to put my hands on somebody? "

On What Ray Was Thinking After He Hit Her:

"I asked him how he felt when he saw that I was unconscious. He told me he was in shock. I asked him what happened when we got out of the elevator. He told me he was terrified because security was there. I asked him how he felt seeing me like that. He said he was thinking, "What did I just do?" I didn't watch the video again."

On What Ray and Janay told Roger Goodell:

"Ray told the commissioner, and his colleagues, everything that happened. There was no reason to lie because we knew that there was a video and we assumed the NFL knew what was in it, even though we didn't know whether or not they saw it.

On Anger at Baltimore Ravens for Cutting Ray:

"I was extremely surprised and angry that the Ravens released him, because they know him. They were our family, but I felt like the Ravens completely disregarded the past six years with him. Anytime the Ravens needed someone for a community event, Ray was their man.

On Being a Martyr for Domestic Violence:

"If it took our situation becoming headline news to show domestic violence is happening in this country, that's a positive."

Tyga & Kylie Jenner

Mission Impossible

To Believe They're Not Dating

EXCLUSIVE

112614_kylie_tyga_launch_v2Tyga and Kylie Jenner had forbidden love written all over them --well, maybe a little overstated -- as they served up meals for the homeless on Thanksgiving Eve.

The 25-year-old rapper insists he's not romantically involved with the 17-year-old reality star, but there's plenty of smoke ... you'll recall a week ago when he pitched a fit because the club where he was supposed to perform wouldn't let her in because of her age.

So check out the video of Tyga and his blue haired babe at the L.A. Mission. Best part of the video ... Miss California was trying to teach Tyga how to serve up a meal and Kylie came over like a heat-seeking missile to show him who's boss.

Darren Wilson

Michael Brown Said I Was

'Too Much of a Pussy to Shoot'

11/26/2014 6:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112614_darren_wilson_launchDarren Wilson says Michael Brown was goading him, saying he was "too much of a pussy to shoot me."

Wilson went through the events of the evening step-by-step ... prompted by ABC's George Stephanopoulos ... who, by the way, showed he's a great interviewer.

Wilson said it was either his life or Michael Brown's when he fired the shots in Ferguson, saying Brown absolutely did NOT have his hands up when he discharged the gun.

Wilson also said he and his wife are expecting a baby.

Scott Disick

Snaps at Pap ...

Is There Trouble at Home?

11/26/2014 7:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112614_scott_disick_launchScott Disick jumped down the throat of a photog -- not because he was asked about rumored troubles with Kourtney Kardashian -- but because the pap messed with something he really treasures.

Lord Disick was leaving lunch Tuesday with Kendall Jenner in Beverly Hills when our guy tried to get to the bottom of the rumors he and Kourtney were having issues ... again. 

Scott seemed to ignore the question, but seconds later unloaded on a pap who accidentally backed into his exotic sports car -- making it look like he's really on edge about home issues.

Or he really loves his Bugatti.

Khloe Kardashian

On Kim's Ass

For Title of Hottest Kardashian Ass

1125-khloe-kardashian-butt-01Watch your back, Kim ... Khloe is coming for you.

Khloe Kardashian continued her all out assault on her sister's claim to the most colossal culo in Calabasas ... as she was spotted leaving a private gym Tuesday afternoon. 

The spandex-clad profile is oddly similar to the one Kim showed off just a few months back.

1125_kim_kardashian-butt-x17The question is ... 




Officer Darren Wilson

I Did Nothing Wrong ...

and I'd Do it Again

Officer Darren Wilson
says the Missouri Grand Jury did the right thing, he has a clear conscience over the death of Michael Brown, and he'd do it again.

Wilson sat down with ABC's George Stephanopoulos Tuesday and gave his version of events -- that Brown reached into Wilson's patrol car and attempted to grab his gun, and Brown then charged Wilson which is when he began shooting.

Wilson says he would have done the same thing if Brown was white ... that race had nothing to do with it.

Stephanopoulos' interview airs Tuesday on ABC's World News Tonight.

'Moesha' Star

Denied From the Club

No Fame, No Bottle ... No Service!!

11/25/2014 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

112514_paluk_launchFormer "Moesha" star Marcus T. Paulk tried to party like it was 1999 -- when he was a big TV star -- but got rejected at a nightclub ... where he found out money talks way more than old acting credits.

Paulk was outside DBA in West Hollywood Monday night where he gave us the play-by-play of his attempts to get inside. He waited and waited -- with friends in tow -- but it never happened ... even after he was told he could get in, if he got bottle service.

You gotta see it unfold ... seems like Marcus was hoping the bouncer would recognize his celebrity because our camera guy was shooting him. No dice.

By the way ... watch for his commentary on Ferguson. Not a good look, bro.

Don Lemon

Protests in Ferguson

'Obviously' Protesters Smell Like Weed

11/25/2014 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112514_don_lemon_launchDon Lemon had another "open mouth, insert foot" moment on CNN ... this time using the word "obviously" to describe the smell of marijuana in the air during the protests in Ferguson.

Lemon was on the scene Monday night as residents took to the streets to protest the decision not to indict the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown

It kinda turned into quien es mas macho between Lemon and Chris Cuomo. Lemon had gas mask in hand and Chris went commando. 

At one point as gas moved in Don's direction he put the mask on but for some reason took it off, saying he needed water and started hacking uncontrollably.

Sad part for Don and Chris though -- Sara Sidner outmanned both of 'em by taking a rock to the dome ... and not missing a beat.

Tom Bergeron

Cracks Erin Andrews

Stalking Joke

11/25/2014 6:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112514_tom_dwts_launchTom Bergeron hit a little too close to home Monday night on "Dancing With the Stars" ... when he made a stalking joke about Erin Andrews ... who very famously dealt with a stalker of her own.

Andrews was debriefing Alfonso Ribeiro when she began gushing over Will Smith ... who went on a social media campaign supporting his former "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" co-star. 

After Andrews repeatedly invited Will to show up to a taping, Bergeron followed it up by saying Will could do worse than having Erin as a stalker ... insinuating it's ok for hot chicks to stalk guys.

You'll recall ... Erin dealt with a stalker/Peeping Tom who secretly filmed her inside a hotel room and posted a video of her naked online. The creepy peeper was sentenced to 30 months.

'DWTS' Celeb Janel Parrish

Rehearsal Injury

Makes Final Performance Iffy [VIDEO]

EXCLUSIVE

DWTS Janel Parrish InjuryJanel Parrish just had her chances of winning the Mirrorball Trophy derailed ... at least that's the way it looks after she suffered a gnarly injury during rehearsal.

TMZ just got this video of the "Pretty Little Liars" star and Val Chmerkovskiy practicing lifts. Something bad clearly happened because you see her dissolve into tears as she hobbles to a room where doctors examine her.

It looks like she suffered a broken or compressed rib.

She hasn't been counted out, but it doesn't look good. The finals are tonight.

Jennifer Lawrence

I Got Real Pumped

To Eat at Reality Star's Restaurant

11/24/2014 10:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Jennifer Lawrence Lisa Vanderpump RestaurantJennifer Lawrence cozied up to one of the stars of her favorite show Saturday night in West Hollywood ... and TOTALLY fangirl'ed out.

The "Hunger Games" star hit up Pump with her friends and we're told Lisa Vanderpump hooked JLaw up with the best seat in the house ... and then snapped a pic with the group.

It's interesting ... When the actress walked in no one noticed her and she was seated in the less desirable outside area facing Santa Monica Blvd. When Vanderpump realized what was up, Jennifer was moved to Lisa's personal table.

Jennifer was drinking Pump-tinis and Lisa's Sangria. 

Lawrence has confessed she LOVES reality TV ... and the Instagram video makes it clear ... in her head Vanderpump Rules.
