Prince Ashes to Ashes
4/25/2016 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The ashes of Prince were gingerly carried away from the mortuary where he was cremated.
Prince's nephew, Pres Nelson, did the honors as his mom, Prince's sister Tyka, cleared the way. We don't know the identity of the woman walking behind Pres.
Pres shielded the urn by placing it underneath his jacket.
So far, the family hasn't said where the ashes will be strewn.

Ariel Winter Coachella Rage ... Underboob
4/25/2016 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ariel Winter ditched flower crowns and chokers and started a whole new Coachella trend on the final day of the festival.
The "Modern Family" star's top kept getting smaller throughout the weekend. To her defense, it gets hot in the desert and it doesn't hurt to always be pool ready.
Too bad the fest's only 3 days long.
Kim Kardashian has dropped some SERIOUS weight. She stepped out in a completely sheer, nude dress -- and WOW, she looks gooooooood.
The Game ONE Word Killed My Hit with Prince
4/25/2016 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Game was in Bev Hills -- shopping for a Prince party, btw -- when he revealed his Prince experience ... meeting up to discuss a collabo a few years ago.
You gotta see Game explain how his commitment to cussing ended up sinking the deal. Yes, he actually chose the four-letter word over getting Prince on the track.
No hard feelings though. As Game puts it, "That's the evolution of people in their lives."
T.I. I'm Allowed to Vote And I Support ...
4/25/2016 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
T.I. told us something we didn't know ... even though he's a convicted felon, he's allowed to vote.
We got the rapper at LAX Sunday and he schooled us on voting rights. He's right ... once a felon is off parole, they can re-register to vote.
He's voted for Obama both times, and has a favorite in this year's election.
Beyonce Anti-Bey Anchor Blocks Bey's World Tour Video
4/25/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Beyonce's camp sent a letter to Tomi and TheBlaze, the network that produces Tomi's show, asking for the rights to use the first 30 seconds of her rant.
The letter was sent late last month, stating they'd probably only use Tomi's audio but video was a possibility as well. Tomi's answer was short and sweet -- no.
Tomi received death threats over her blistering comments about Bey's black power halftime show. For those who missed it ... she's argued Bey ripped off the historical band-aid on America's civil rights movement by promoting the Black Panthers, which Tomi called a terrorist group.
Someone needs to give Tomi a lesson about PR ... it's almost always good.

Prince Emergency Apparent in Control Tower Audio
4/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Prince's life-threatening medical emergency 6 days before he died comes through loud and clear in transmissions between his pilot and air traffic control.
The audio transmissions -- obtained by TMZ -- chronicle a pilot who had to get his plane on the ground STAT in Moline, Illinois to save his famous passenger. Prince's plane is identified as "990." At 48 seconds you hear the controller from the Chicago Center say, "CFR [Crash, Fire, Rescue] will be waiting."
As we reported, our sources say Prince almost died from an overdose of Percocet ... and the situation was so dire CFR administered a "save drug" right at the airport ... as soon as the plane landed.
It's interesting ... you hear the ATC ask if the patient was male or female, suggesting the pilot didn't disclose the identity of the stricken passenger.
This is NUTS. Seriously, certifiably insane.

The "Dancing with the Stars" and FOX Sports host was spotted at LAX with her limo driver, who clearly failed Covert Operations 101 -- since her fake name, "Emmy Bean," was in clear sight after they met.
If nothing else ... she managed to dodge creepy taxi drivers.

Billy Paul 'Me & Mrs. Jones' Singer Dead After Cancer Battle
4/24/2016 8:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Legendary soul singer Billy Paul died Sunday at his home in New Jersey ... according to his manager.
Paul -- most famous for his iconic song, "Me and Mrs. Jones" -- had checked into Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia last week as he battled cancer ... but his manager, Beverly Gay, says he was at home when he passed away.
Paul's signature hit went to number one for 3 weeks in 1972. The song also won him a Grammy.
His 1975 hit, "Let's Make a Baby" became controversial as Rev. Jesse Jackson called for radio stations to boycott the song due to its sexuality.
Paul's music made him a central figure in the black power movement, but chart-wise ... he never matched the success of 'Mrs. Jones.'
Billy was 81 years old.
Yep. 2016 officially sucks, where music greats are concerned.
This is the biggest pile that Wendy may have ever stepped in. BUT WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON?!
Jared Fogle Wins $180k from Child Porn Partner
4/25/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Fogle had sued Taylor over a $191,000 loan he gave him in 2014 to buy a house, but according to the docs ... Taylor stopped making his monthly payments to Fogle in May 2015.
Of course, Taylor got busted on April 29, 2015 -- the first domino in the whole Fogle case -- so kinda makes sense he stopped paying. He was a little busy.
In any event, Jared just won the lawsuit, which means he can sell Taylor's house to get back the $184,000 he's still owed.

Although Forsberg is the administrator of Weiland's estate, she needs the court's permission to get the dough.
