Clive Davis Death Threats Trigger Police Manhunt

2/13/2016 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0212-clive-davis-TMZ-01Sony Music honcho Clive Davis is at the receiving end of some very serious death threats ... and they're so severe, cops are on the alert to track the suspect down.

Law enforcement sources tell us Jeffrey Choi left Davis a message in November saying, "... you're a piece of s*** ... I will f***ing kill you."

We're told it's not the first time Davis has been threatened by Choi. In 2011, Choi left messages with Sony Music claiming they made songs about him without permission. He demanded money and threatened violence. He was put on a psych hold but later released.

Cops say when they went to Choi's latest residence they learned he'd moved and when they got him on the phone, he refused to meet up without seeing Clive face-to-face.

We're told the situation is still under investigation and cops are desperate to speak with Choi. 

Terrell Owens Ochocinco's My Boy But That Urine Thing Is Weird

2/13/2016 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Terrell Owens says his good friend Chad Johnson is all alone when it comes to pee ... saying Johnson's recent revelation that he used to soak his sore ankles in teammates' urine is "weird."

Owens was out braving the sub zero temperatures for the All-Star game festivities in Toronto when we asked about Johnson's whizz wisdom ... and whether Owens would ever try it.

Check out the clip -- seems as if Terrell's ankles are going to stay -- and have been -- pee free, with him telling our guy he thinks the entire thing is odd.

We'd agree ... but hey whatever works right?

Tom Cruise I'm Giving Senate Candidate a Filipino Pass

2/11/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Tom Cruise zealously guards his image, which is why it's shocking he's allowing a Senate candidate in the Philippines to use his mug on campaign billboards.

Cresente Paez is gunning for an upgrade from the Philippines House of Representatives to the Senate. So the campaign brain trust came up with this ad, showing Tom Cruise scoffing at Paez's candidacy ... calling it "Mission Impossible." But Paez fires back, "It's Paezible!"  

Tom has gone on the attack against people who use his name and likeness without permission, but his longtime lawyer, Bert Fields, tells TMZ, "Since the ad's meant to be funny and doesn't imply an endorsement, I'm sure Tom's not going to assert the right to protect his name and likeness."

Sidenote ... the movie poster is from 2006. Sometimes there's a bit of a delay when movies go international.


Pauley Perrette Claims Second Attack By Homeless Man

2/10/2016 11:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

021016-pauley-perrette-tmz-02"NCIS" star Pauley Perrette claims she was attacked by another homeless guy ... this time in her car and narrowly escaped after getting all evangelical on the dude.

Perrette says she was stopped on a busy street in Hollywood when she gave a buck to a "pretty off homeless guy" asking for change.

Perrette says the guy then grabbed her wrist and stuck his head into her car demanding to know the time.  She says her immediate reaction was to yell "I rebuke you satan in the name of Jesus Christ!" And then she told him the time ... 5:37 PM.

Seems to have done the trick ... because the dude let go.

It gets weirder ... Perrette says she had a taser and tactical knife with her in the car too, but chose to go the good Samaritan route instead.

This is the second time in 3 months she says she's been attacked by a pedestrian ... so chances are next time the person won't be so lucky. 

Abominable Snowman Spotted on Ski Vacay in Spain

2/9/2016 12:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
You Gotta See This!

0209-yeti-ski-resort-TWITTER-02Move over Bigfoot and Chupacabra -- the Yeti's getting a little shine while skiing in the mountains of Spain ... allegedly.

The footage, which recently surfaced, shows a Yeti, aka abominable snowman, running through on a ski slope in the Pyrenees -- or at least that's what the skier who shot the images thinks.

Oddly, not everyone's buying that this is the real deal. Sure, it could just be some dude in a big furry snowsuit, but where's the fun in that? For the record, the ski resort says it sent out a search party but found nothing. 

Normally, the Yeti's associated with the Himalayas ... so maybe he's just wintering in Spain. Maybe.

Exclusive Details

0208-john-lennon-hair-GETTY-HERITAGE-AUCTIONS-01Several locks of John Lennon's hair are on the auction block, and even though it's already going for five figures ... it's a steal as Lennon memorabilia goes.

Heritage Auction out of Dallas is hawking a 4-inch chunk of John's hair -- a hairdresser cut it off before his role in a 1967 movie called, "How I Won The War" -- and the current bid is at $12k.

Past Lennon items have gone for way more than that: his '65 Rolls Royce Phantom V sold for $2.23 MILLION, and Lennon's handwritten lyrics to "All You Need is Love" fetched $1.25 million.

So chances are the price on Lennon's locks will go through the roof too. Get your bids in now!


Chief Keef You Made Us Homeless!! College Girls Say Fans Attacked Their Pad

2/1/2016 2:23 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0201-chief-keef-TMZ-01Chief Keef endangered the lives of 3 female college students who say they've been forced to flee their crib after Keef sent his 1.11 million Twitter followers on the attack. 

Keef's tweet on Friday instructed his followers to "throw eggs and s**t in a bag and rocks and all that at this address." The tweet included the address of a Minneapolis area home.

One of the 3 women who lives there tells TMZ she was terrified when dozens of people surrounded the house, taking pictures and videos. Although it appears no one threw stuff, they did shoot videos ... some of which Keef reposted.

The women say they're innocent victims because it appears Keef's real beef is with a previous renter. Still, the damage is done -- they no longer feel safe because of all the people hanging around outside. They're no longer staying there, and are actively searching for a new place.

They've reached out to Chief Keef to get him to pay for their relocation, but haven't heard back from him. They'd rather not sue, but in the meantime they're trying to scrounge up the money on their own.

Keef's peeps haven't gotten back to us either.

Brad And Angelina No Peeing On Our Property

2/1/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's property is strictly a no pee zone ... just ask the guy who almost got arrested. 

Our law enforcement sources say cops were called to the couple's Hollywood Hills home last week after their security guards noticed a man lurking in the bushes. 

They thought they had a trespasser on their hands, so they detained him until the men in blue arrived. 

Turns out it was just nature's call. The guy was homeless and in desperate need of a leak. He had no outstanding warrants at the time and no history of bothering the Jolie-Pitts. Cops looked at surveillance video and the story checked out. 

We're told neither Brad nor Angie were home at the time.

On the bright side ... their water bill might be a little lower this month. 

Rihanna Alleged Stalker Sends Alarming Masturbation Video

1/31/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0129-rihanna-tmzRihanna has an alleged stalker who was so invasive in her life, he sent her a masturbation video.

According to a search warrant, obtained by TMZ, the man had been dogging Rihanna, sending her threatening tweets between April and June of last year, saying among other things, "Should have killed @rihanna a minute back I would be good right now."

The man also said, "I use guns, bout to get a gun license."

But the search warrant makes it clear the man did things even more deranged, posting a 15 second masturbation video to Rihanna.

As we reported, the man also posted a pic (below) of him standing outside Rihanna's former home, saying, "Outside yo house."

0707-sub-rihanna-ralph-alexander-stalker-instagram-4The warrant says Rihanna's in fear for her life.

We're told cops found the guy and put him in a psychiatric hospital, where he remains.

Shannon Twins Thief Stashed Our Cash Inside Her Vagina

1/29/2016 2:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0129-shannon-twins-salon-crazy-lady-vag-money-fun-art-6The Shannon Twins were the victims of quite possibly the strangest, grossest alleged burglary attempt of all time -- and it involved a real life keister job.

Cops responded to a burglary call at the twins' Beverly Hills salon, Glam. Witnesses tell us a woman snatched cash from the register, slipped it inside her vagina and tried to make a run for it -- but an employee stopped her until cops arrived. 

Law enforcement sources tell us the woman was indeed "secreting money from an orifice" when officers arrived ... although they couldn't specify which hole. Witnesses say a female cop had to literally "rip it out of her."

The twins weren't there during the freak incident, but had plenty to say afterward.

The woman was taken to a hospital for a psych evaluation. 

As for just how much dough she allegedly smuggled ... the twins don't have an exact count yet. One of their employees made the wise decision to wash the cash. Money laundering -- sometimes it's necessary.


Ex-Miss Washington Drunk, Bloody, Confused In MLS Player Stabbing

1/29/2016 9:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Ex-Miss Washington Stormy Keffeler appeared drunk -- and had blood on her shirt and hands -- when cops arrived to her boyfriend's Seattle apartment after he had been stabbed ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

Cops say ... when they arrived to the home of MLS player Marco Pappa on December 17th -- there was blood all over the walls ... and also on a knife in the kitchen. 

Pappa had a 2-to-3 inch stab wound on his torso -- and later needed surgery to treat the wound -- but when asked at the scene if his beauty queen girlfriend was the attacker, he was adamant she was NOT.

When asked for an explanation, Keffeler said they had been walking home from a bar earlier in the night when Pappa was bumped "by an unknown person." Cops say she then changed her story and later refused to talk to police completely. 

In the police report, cops paint a picture that seems very damning of Keffeler -- saying there was a trail of blood from the kitchen area of the apartment to the bathroom ... and in the bathroom, there was blood spatter on the wall along with several "stab marks" on the wall. 

Seems cops are convinced the stabbing took place inside the apartment. 

Cops also point out the initial 911 call they received was from Keffeler saying, "I've had an accident at my boyfriend's apartment" ... but then changed her tune and said she didn't know what happened. 

Cops say the bloody knife they found in the apartment was sent to the crime lab to be tested for fingerprints -- but no prints were recovered. 

When asked about the blood on her shirt and hands, Keffeler says she was trying to treat Pappa's wounds. 

Story developing ... 

Adrien Broner To Stripper Don't Forget The Razor

1/28/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"You need to shave" -- Adrien Broner to stripper. 

Some people would call it rude ... others might say he's considerate ... either way, the boxer was dishing out grooming advice to strippers at the booty club the other night and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

Broner and his crew hit up Blue Flame in Atlanta where he threw out $10,000 in cash -- but everything came to a grinding halt when he noticed one of the ladies had a flashback to the '80s below the belt. 

So, why is Broner so anti-fuzz? Might have something to do with a story he told back in 2013

Smooth move.
