Bobbi Kristina Funeral

Brown Family Suspicious

Houstons Will Sneak Pic of Body

8/1/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0202-bobbi-kristina-instagram-6Bobbi Kristina’s funeral will be yet another family face-off -- the Browns are on high alert and worried the Houstons will sneak a photo of her dead body ... and sell it.

Sources close to the Browns tell TMZ ... they fear a repeat of what happened when Whitney Houston was laid to rest in 2012 ... when a photo of her body, in her casket, was snapped and ended up on the cover of a magazine. 

Since the Brown family was persona non grata at the funeral ... they believe someone from the Houston side was behind it.

Our sources say the Brown family plans to band together and stand guard ... and their eyes will be trained on the Houston family.

Pat Houston is managing the funeral, so it has all the makings of turning real ugly, real fast.

Over Undertaker Entrance Song on Diss Track

EXCLUSIVE

0801-meek-taker-wwe-tmz-getty-01Meek Mill can't get a break this week ... after getting trashed for his tepid Drake diss song, he's now in the crosshairs of of The Undertaker over the wrestler's famous ring entrance song.

Meek sampled The Taker's signature bells in the diss track, and the WWE is not amused.  A spokesperson tells TMZ, "WWE takes its intellectual property rights very seriously, and we're looking into the matter."

The timing is sure bad ... the WWE is in no mood for clowning, given the tragic death of Rowdy Roddy Piper.

It's even more amusing because Chelsea was also there with Eve Hewson, Bono's daughter.

Snoop Dogg

Busted In Italy

Carrying Too Much Cash

8/1/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0801-snoop-dogg-italy-flag-tmz-getty-02Snoop Dogg found himself in some hot water with Italian Customs agents after facing a problem most people wish they could have ... he was carrying too much money.

Reports say that Snoop was stopped at an Italian airport with approximately $422,000 in cash ... WAY more than the $10K you can move across European borders without claiming.

Half of the money was impounded but in most cases it's returned after fines.

Snoop hasn't had the best of luck in Europe ... he was arrested after officers suspected he was under the influence of pot in Sweden last week.

Mo' Money, Mo' problems.

'Vanderpump Rules' Jax Taylor

Blabs About Hawaiian Sunglasses Arrest

8/1/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jax Taylor from "Vanderpump Rules" should exercise his right to remain silent, because he's a little too loose lipped for his own good following his arrest in Hawaii.

Our photog spotted the reality star with co-star Kristen Doute, who tried to get him to shut up, to no avail. Jax suggests he did not steal from the sunglasses store last month, but the surveillance video seems to tell a very different story.

Jax was arrested for felony theft ... expensive shades.

Fetty Wap

Olive Garden

Is Lucky I Paid Anything

8/1/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0731-fetty-wap-olive-garden-GETTY-901Fetty Wap was like, "Hey, what's up? Hello," at an Olive Garden Thursday night ... and then he bolted without paying the bill.

Fetty was dining with a group of friends at the famous franchise in Wayne, NJ when he stormed out of the restaurant.  

We're told he threw down $100 for the apps and drinks, but by the time he left, the bill swelled to $160 ... possibly leaving the server on the hook for $60.

Fetty says he was there for 2 hours and the service was so slow his food never came, so he said "arrivederci."

But Olive Garden employees say he was there for only 30 minutes and it was a simple case of dining and dashing. 

Happy ending ... the server didn't have to pay.

We couldn't reach Fetty for comment.
