Johnny Depp, Amber Heard LAPD Holding Firm No Visible Injuries

5/31/2016 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0527_amber_heard_johnny_depp_getty-3Amber Heard is now fighting her domestic violence battle on 2 fronts ... the LAPD is sticking to its story the cops who responded to the 911 call saw no evidence of injury and no disarray in the apartment.

Amber's lawyer said Monday, "The LAPD officers viewed not only the disarray that Johnny had caused in the apartment but also the physical injuries to Amber's face."   

TMZ broke the story ... the cops who responded say they saw no evidence of injury, no disarray ... no evidence of a crime. An LAPD official tells us they are sticking to their story.

Johnny says Amber is lying ... he never struck her with an iPhone. As we reported, 2 bodyguards were in the entryway of the apartment during the argument and they heard Amber scream, "Stop hitting me!" They say within a second they entered the living area and saw Amber sitting on a sofa in the living room and Johnny at least 20 feet away in the kitchen.

Amber's lawyer says she was trying to protect Johnny's career and that's why she did not file a police report but she'll do it now, because her character is being assassinated.


Rapper Troy Ave Accused Concert Shooter Wheeled into Court, Enters Plea

5/31/2016 7:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0531-troy-ave-wheelchair-dailynewsRapper Troy Ave's nursing a gunshot wound to his right leg and facing an attempted murder charge ... both from behind bars.

The accused shooter from T.I.'s NYC concert last week was wheeled into a court Monday ... where he entered a not guilty plea. Troy was arrested -- from his hospital bed -- last week after NYPD released surveillance video of him opening fire inside the venue.

Troy's attorney says that video doesn't show the full story of what happened before and after Troy opened fire. He could still be charged with murder if ballistics testing connect him to the death of his bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter.

The NY Daily News got pics of police wheeling him into court. The judge ordered him to be held without bail.

0526_oprah_lemonade_tmz_composite-3Oprah didn't get filthy rich by ignoring golden opportunities ... which could explain why she's riding Beyonce's lemonade bandwagon straight to the bank.

O recently made a move to expand merchandising rights of her personal "Oprah's" brand to include bottled water, energy drinks, coconut water ... and lemonade. 

Always the savvy entrepreneur, Oprah filed the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- a few weeks after Bey's "Lemonade" album became a smash hit. 

No word on when the beverages will roll out ... but Oprah's neighbors in Montecito better prepare for the most expensive lemonade stand of all time.

Bikram Yoga Guru Divorce Wife Gets Ferrari, He Keeps The Lawsuits

5/31/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520-Bikram-Choudhury-rajashree-GETTY-01The wife of hot yoga mogul Bikram Choudhury didn't just score fancy whips in their divorce ... she also made sure she was off the hook in all his pending lawsuits.

According to legal docs ... Bikram is facing at least 10 lawsuits. As we previously reported ... at least 6 of those allege rape and sexual assault.

His divorce from his wife of 31 years, Rajashree, was finalized earlier this month, and a key provision in their settlement was she will not pay for any of his misdeeds. In case she gets sued over his hijinks and loses, he has to pay what she owes.

As for the rest of their property, it looks like Rajashree got most of what she wanted ... including their Bev Hills and L.A. pads, the Ferrari, Mercedes 550 and a Bentley.

Bikram got to keep their home in Hawaii.

DMX All Good with Bernie Sanders And 'The Hood' Hoax Vid

5/31/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0527-dmx-tmzDMX would've given Bernie Sanders a pass for using "Where The Hood At" as his walkout song at a Cali rally -- if the candidate had really done so.

Bernie -- usually a Neil Young and Simon & Garfunkel kinda guy -- surprised a lot of people when he appeared to walk X's 2003 banger last week in California ... but the whole thing was a hoax. A guy at the rally says he was just imagining what it would be like if Bernie and DMX really did team up ... so he edited the video and posted it.

X tells us no one contacted him for approval, but he's not sweating it, telling us ... "It's a blessing to be a blessing. I'm just watching God work." 

He's also not throwing his support behind Sen. Sanders -- or any other candidate at this point.

Cincinnati Zoo We Had to Shoot to Kill Gorilla ... Harambe Was 'Erratic'

Breaking News

Cincinnati Zoo officials made a snap decision to kill Harambe the gorilla and they have no regrets about it ... according to the zoo's director.

Thane Maynard just explained, "When it was determined that the child was being injured ... we had to make a decision to shoot and we did." He said the gorilla's behavior and knowing how strong it was also played a factor in the decision.

During the news conference Monday he also said a non-lethal approach -- like hypodermic sedatives -- would not have been effective to rescue the 4-year-old boy who wandered into the zoo's gorilla enclosure.

Maynard did not say anything about the boy's parents, or how the child was able to reach the gorilla ... but did say it was no easy feat. The hospital says the child was treated and released Sunday night.

Amber Heard Never Told Cops About Alleged iPhone Attack

5/30/2016 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0527-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-02Amber Heard did not tell cops who responded to her home last week that Johnny Depp smashed her face with an iPhone ... she said she had a simple argument with "my husband" and that was it.

TMZ broke the story ... when cops responded to the 911 call last week, they saw no evidence of injury. Our law enforcement sources say not only was Amber free of visible injuries, she never even hinted Johnny laid a finger on her.

Heard never used Johnny's name ... she only referred to him as her husband, saying they had an argument and that was it.

Cops determined no crime was committed and they left.  As we told you, they gave her a business card in case she wanted to make a report.

0527-amber-heard-police-call-detective-card-lapd-tmz-11We're told Amber still has not filed a police report.  If Johnny's right and he never touched her ... had she filed an official report she could be prosecuted for a felony -- filing a phony police report.

0530-launch-amber-heardAmber submitted pictures to the judge last week showing injuries to her face.  The night after those pics were allegedly taken she was out partying with friends.
