Breaking News

0627-suge-knight-chris-brown-tmzSuge Knight thinks Chris Brown's crappy security is the reason he got shot 7 times ... so now he's suing Brown.

According to the docs, Knight says Brown and 1 OAK Nightclub should have had better security in August 2014 when Suge was shot multiple times inside the club. He was hit in the abdomen, chest, and left forearm.

Suge, who's currently in jail awaiting trial for murder, calls out Brown in the suit ... for being a "known gang associate" with a history of hosting events where violent incidents happened.

He's also suing singer Pia Mia, who was co-hosting the party.

Knight claims since the shooting he's had major health complications ... including a blood clot.

Rep. Alan Grayson Pay Attention, Paul Ryan ... We'll Show You How to Do Your Job

6/23/2016 3:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan wouldn't know how to run Congress if his job came with an instruction manual ... according to Florida Congressman Alan Grayson.

Grayson -- a Democrat participating in the sit-in for a gun control vote -- threw major shade at Ryan just after the political protest was suspended until legislators return in July.

We asked him about Ryan saying the Dems were just pulling a "publicity stunt," and that's when he went off.

Keep in mind, Grayson's constituency includes Orlando ... so his passion on the topic makes sense.

Jesse Jackson is not just applauding the Democratic sit-in ... he firmly believes it's picking up where the Civil Rights Movement left off in the '60s.

The Rev was on Capitol Hill Thursday morning -- before the demonstration was suspended -- when he explained why he thinks the Dems can't back down on demanding at least a vote on gun control legislation ... no matter how much backlash they get for it.

Jackson had NO problem with the sit-in participants singing "We Shall Overcome." Some critics think they belittled the importance of Civil Rights protests -- but Jackson says, "It's the same struggle led by the same people."

When it comes to the shooting at T.I.'s concert, T.I. is very clear -- he ain't saying crap about it, but he will pray like a mother about it.

We asked Tip about Troy Ave's attempted murder indictment for opening fire last month at the NYC concert. As a convicted felon, he had a lot to say about how Troy can pull through the case.

EXCLUSIVE

0620-ti-tiny-zonnique-daughter-gun-airport-GETTY-01T.I. and Tiny are defending daughter Zonnique Pullins after her arrest last week for carrying a semi-automatic handgun through a TSA checkpoint.

Sources tell us Zonnique had been trying to catch a last-minute flight out of Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to see her boyfriend, and she grabbed the wrong purse ... not realizing the gun was inside.

We're told Tiny actually went with Zonnique to buy the .38 caliber pistol after the 20-year-old aspiring singer started getting threats on social media, and a fan grabbed her at a recent listening party.

Our sources say T.I. and Tiny both agreed she needed protection.  

Zonnique failed to produce the right docs for TSA agents because Tiny was holding them. Wouldn't have mattered anyway ... it's illegal to have a gun in your carry-on.

We're told T.I. picked up his daughter from the airport, and already hired a lawyer for her.

Kim Kardashian I Personally Searched O.J.'s Bag ... No Murder Weapon, Bloody Clothes

6/16/2016 10:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0616-kim-kardashian-oj-simpson-tmz-getty-02Kim Kardashian is adamant her father did NOT use a Louis Vuitton bag to smuggle a murder weapon or bloody clothes out of O.J. Simpson's home ... claiming she personally inspected it with her own eyes. 

Kim's dad, Robert Kardashian, was pictured with the bag the day after Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman's bodies were discovered -- and there were all sorts of conspiracy theories that Robert took it from O.J.'s home to help him get rid of the evidence. 

0616-robert-kardashian-duffle-bag-oj-simpson-TWITTER-01But Kim says it's just not true, telling GQ: 

"I know people said at the time that he [joined Simpson's defense team] so he couldn't be called as a witness, because he had that Louis Vuitton bag that supposedly had the [murder] weapon and stuff like that ... But that bag was sitting at my dad's house."

"I remember I went through it. The news was like, ‘Where is this Louis Vuitton bag?’ And I'm like, ‘Oh, it's upstairs.'"

GQ: Did you really go through it?

Kim: "Totally."

GQ: What was in it?

Kim: "Just toiletries and clothes and golf clothes. Just random stuff. I'm pretty sure it's, like, still in -- probably in my dad's storage."

By the way, Kim also says she LOVED FX's 'The People v. O.J. Simpson' -- and praised David Schwimmer's portrayal of her father

"There were times I was watching and I was like, 'Oh s***, this is dead-on ... 'That looks like my dad, it feels like my dad.' It was eerie to watch sometimes."

Christina Grimmie Killer Went Under the Knife to Win Her Affection

6/16/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0615-grimmie-loibl-getty-01Christina Grimmie's killer was on a mission to make himself so appealing she couldn't resist him, and when it didn't work he changed his plan to kill her ... this according to his former co-workers.

Various people who worked with Kevin Loibl tell TMZ his infatuation with Christina was boundless. He went on a mission to change his appearance for her and, toward the end, got hair transplants and Lasik eye surgery. He also went vegan to lose weight.

He would also listen to her music at work and vow she would someday be his wife.

Loibl's Best Buy co-workers say he went to one of Christina's shows in March and hinted that he actually met her. The co-workers also say the Geek Squad killer claimed to have played online games with the singer. A source close to the singer, however, tells us Christina never had contact with Loibl.

0615-Christina-grimmie-Stephen-instagram-2And there's this. The co-workers say they teased Loibl that he would never score because Christina had a boyfriend ... her producer. That relationship was never public, but pictures of Christina and the guy together on social media made it pretty clear ... they were together. We're told that enraged Loibl.

That rage was vented last Friday after Christina's show, when he shot her in the head and then killed himself.
