10 Pieces of Ass

7/22/2014 8:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Justin Bieber's raging house party this weekend can be summed up just by watching this video ... first a bunch of hot chicks walk in ... followed a short time later by the police.

TMZ broke the story ... cops showed up to Bieber's crib on Saturday night at at 8:30 PM, 12:50 AM, 1:50 AM and 3:00 AM ... all because of noise complaints. 

Bieber's neighbors are pissed because the party left the rooftop deck in shambles and one person says he observed "bimbos lining up to do drugs in the lobby bathroom" -- something we can't verify.

Justin Bieber's trail of liquor and litter at his Beverly Hills condo has set his neighbors off ... and now we know the cops have talked to them about placing the singer under citizen's arrest.

TMZ broke the story ... cops came to the condo 6 TIMES over the weekend -- 4 times for excessive noise in the middle of the night.  Bieber partied hard -- 75 guests on Saturday night and 20 on Sunday.

The pictures on the rooftop deck tell only part of the story. People in the building tell TMZ ... the hallways and elevators reeked of pot.  And several guests say drug use was obvious.  

One person says, "There were bimbos lining up to do drugs in the lobby bathroom."

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops have spoken to residents, Bieber and his management to resolve the situation.

We're told police informed residents cops can't make an arrest for a misdemeanor if they don't see it happen ... but the residents can take matters into their own hands by placing Bieber under arrest.

Ray J

Charged with 4 CRIMES

D.A. Files Sexual Battery, Cops Disagree

7/21/2014 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0721-ray-j-tmz-01
The L.A. County D.A. has thrown the book at Ray J ... charging him Monday with 4 CRIMES in connection with his drunken antics last May ... and get this -- the D.A. charged Ray J with sexual battery even though cops say no such crime was committed.

Ray J was at a bar at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel when he got rowdy, brushed up against a woman's ass and was ordered to leave.   Police told TMZ at the time it was NOT sexual battery because the contact was "incidental" -- not intentional.  Apparently the D.A. begs to differ.

Ray J left the bar and then went nuts in an alcohol-fueled rampage.  He was arrested, kicked out the window of a cop car and spit on an officer.  Ray J told TMZ ... he kicked out the window because he was claustrophobic.

In addition to the misdemeanor battery charge, Ray J was charged with resisting arrest, assault and battery and vandalism ... all misdemeanors.

Loud Partying Could Trigger

Probation Violation

Justin Bieber
is playing with fire after cops responded to complaints at his Beverly Hills condo 6 TIMES over the weekend  ... and his freedom is literally on the line.

Cops received 4 separate complaints for loud music and partying on the roof top Saturday night and they sent patrol cars each time -- at 8:30 PM, 12:50 AM, 1:50 AM and 3:00 AM.  We're told Bieber was not cited because he agreed to turn the music down.

There were 2 other incidents involving disturbances with fans and paparazzi.

Here's what's so significant ... Bieber is currently on 2 years probation for egging his neighbor's house.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... if the Bev Hills PD cites Bieber ... they will forward the matter to the L.A. County Probation Dept., which could trigger a probation violation and then he's in jail territory.

Cops have responded to numerous incidents involving Bieber at the condo over the last month ... incidents involving both noise and weed.

WWE's Lana

References Malaysia Air Tragedy

During Pro-Russia Skit

Exclusive Details

072114_lana_wwebattleground_launch
The WWE is getting the smackdown from some fans after two "Russian" characters ripped Americans for blaming Russia for the MH17 tragedy. 

Right before Alexander Rusev's pay-per-view bout last night ... his manager Lana teased hecklers with a very thinly veiled reference to the Malaysia Airlines crash, saying ... "You blame Russia for current events?"

Lana added that America is to blame for "war-mongering in Afghanistan and Iraq." 

Of course, the whole bit was scripted -- like every WWE event -- but mentioning a real disaster, less than a week after it happened ... has generated some backlash.  

By the way, Lana is played C.J. Perry -- an American actress with a shaky Russian accent.


update_graphic_red_barA rep for the WWE tells TMZ the segment was not about the Malaysia Airlines crash in specific. The rep pointed out, "The storyline with characters Rusev and Lana has been a part of WWE programming for more than 3 months. WWE apologizes to anyone who misunderstood last night’s segment and was offended.”

'The Purge: Anarchy' Actor

I Got Robbed

They Never Said I'd Be on Billboards

EXCLUSIVE

0719-Purge-Face-Paint-SUB-03"The Purge: Anarchy" actor featured on billboards across the country says producers hoodwinked him ... because no one said he'd be the face of their ad campaign -- and now he wants to be paid.

Emmanuel Howell says he worked 5 days on the shoot as an extra and made less than a grand.  He expected to only be in the background of shots ... but months later, he started seeing his mug pop up on billboards.

Howell tells us he reached out to production asking for more dough -- but they said to kick rocks ... because he should be happy for the honor. Instead, they offered him free digital movie posters.

Howell says he contacted multiple lawyers because it felt like a slap in the face ... but so far, they've all said he doesn't have a case. 

The billboard star explained his entire situation to our photog ... and you can't help but feel bad.

Welcome to Hollywood!

I'm NOT Banging

Lil Wayne

7/20/2014 7:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

071914_christina_milian_launchChristina Milian made one thing clear Saturday in Glendale ... she's NOT doing the horizontal cabbage patch with Lil Wayne.

The 32-year old singer sauntered into Chris Brown's celebrity kickball game in a killer set of shorts  ... and had no problem talking to us about her platonic relationship with Weezy.

Milian recently signed with Young Money Entertainment and Wayne is planning to roll out her music in a big way.  They were all handsy a week ago ... but it looks like it was all put on.

Christina wouldn't rule out a relationship with Wayne -- when we asked if she'd date a producer or manager she happened to be working with ... Milian had a very calculated reaction.

Selena Gomez

Pro-Humanity or Pro-Hamas?

We Don't Know ... Does She?

Selena Gomez is either directly or indirectly supporting Hamas in the Middle-East conflict ... at least that's the way a lot of people see it after her plea to "Pray for Gaza."

Selena went where Rihanna dared to go on Instagram late Friday ... when she dipped her toe in the conflict.

Maybe she doesn't realize Hamas has launched an untold number of missiles in an effort to destroy Israel, or maybe she supports it ... we don't know.  Maybe she just wants peace for everyone.  We just don't know.

Rihanna had a change of heart in 8 minutes.  Selena seems way more committed ... committed to what is the question.

You Gotta See This!

071814_paris_hilton_launchParis Hilton has a new fashion accessory ... DISPOSABLE BABY!!!

P cradled the infant like a pro at LAX -- just a few minutes ago -- when, for some reason, a very brave parent handed over the kid.

The baby looks to be no more than a few weeks old -- so besides birth, this has to be the most harrowing moment of his life ... though Paris actually shows a bit of maternal instinct here. For a whole 30 seconds.

We can't all get blessed by the Pope, right?

David Hasselhoff's Ex Pam Bach

Targeted for Hit-and-Run

Witness says She was WASTED

EXCLUSIVE

0718-pamela-hasselhoff-tmz-01
Pamela Bach
-- famous for once being married to David Hasselhoff and 2 DUI arrests -- is now accused of slamming into a parked car while drunk.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the LAPD is currently investigating an incident last Friday night ... when Pamela was driving down the block where she lives and she slammed into a parked car.  

We're told an eyewitness says Pamela skidded down the street and pulled into her driveway 5 houses up the block.  When she got out she was stumbling and the witness says Pamela was clearly intoxicated.

The LAPD has taken a hit-and-run report and the case is currently under investigation.

This is not Pamela's first brush with the law or another car.  She was prosecuted for hit-and-run in 2007 but the case was dismissed.  She's also been convicted twice for DUI and served jail time.

Bach tells TMZ ...  there's a simple explanation for the latest mishap.  She says she was on her way home from the dog park when she dropped her cell phone and as she reached for it she sideswiped the parked car, but insists the damage was minor.

Bach says she drove up to her house and when she walked back down she couldn't find the car she hit ... so she went back home.  

Bach insists ... she didn't have an ounce of alcohol.

Jason Biggs

Crash Joke Was Not Aimed at Crash Victims ...

Huh???

EXCLUSIVE



Jason Biggs
may have apologized, but he made it clear today ... he doesn't really get why people were so pissed he cracked a joke about Malaysia Air almost immediately after the crash.

Jason flew into LAX and was willing to talk about the tweet that caused the firestorm -- but seemed to be saying people only got angry because they misunderstood the joke.

Jason told a photog, "I don't want it to be misinterpreted that I joked at their expense, so if I did that I do apologize."

Is there anyway else to take it?

Here's the thing. Good on Jason for apologizing if he felt it was necessary. But watch this clip -- kinda makes you think his apology was forced ... even though he claims it wasn't.
