'Real Housewives' Daughter

Busted for DUI

7/22/2014 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722-bella-hadid-instagram
Bella Hadid -- the 17-year-old daughter of Yolanda Foster -- who appears on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" -- was arrested early Tuesday morning for DUI ... TMZ has learned.

Bella -- whose stepdad is legendary music producer David Foster and whose dad is Mohamed Hadid -- was driving on PCH at around 4 AM when she allegedly blew through a stop sign and almost collided with an L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. patrol car.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Bella was pulled over and the deputy detected a strong odor of alcohol.

Bella blew a .14 -- which approaches double the legal limit -- but because she's a minor it's even worse. She can't drive with ANY alcohol in her system.

It gets worse. Bella was driving on a suspended license.

She was arrested and ultimately released into the care of her famous stepdad.

EXCLUSIVE

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.

7/22/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

072114_coolio_launchCoolio is banking on a whole lotta ass making him a player in the music biz again -- he's teamed up with a porn website for his new music video ... and it's filled with wet t-shirts, garden hoses, twerking dinosaurs ... and even Coolio.

Coolio tells TMZ ... Pornhub.com agreed to provide all the "talent" for his video -- "Take it to the Hub" -- and in exchange he's going to debut all his new music on the website.

We're told Coolio and co. banged out the vid in about 5 hours at a house in Sherman Oaks, CA. The video's pretty funny ... for some reason the director had to remind Coolio and the girls, "Smile while you're doing this. Look like you're having a good time."

This is 50-year-old Coolio's first album since 2009.

Best part of the shoot -- featuring Jessica Bangkok, Missy Martinez and Skin Diamond -- the catering was provided by the nearest El Pollo Loco.

Ay, dios mio.

Richard Pryor Jr.

Fires off Legal Threat ...

I'll Sue if Stepmom Goes Forward with Biopic

EXCLUSIVE

Richard Pryor Movie Rights
Richard Pyror
was dying and mentally incapacitated when his wife duped him into signing over the rights to his name ... so claims Pryor's son, who's trying to shut down a movie about his dad.

Richard Pryor Jr. has fired off a cease and desist letter to Jennifer Lee Pryor, demanding she stop production of the Lee Daniels directed biopic immediately.

TMZ obtained a copy of the letter in which Richard Jr. accuses Jennifer of using "illegal, fraudulent" activity to get the rights. The document isn't more specific about the alleged fraud.

Richard Jr.'s lawyer tells us her client believes Pryor was in poor mental and physical health when he signed over the rights in 2005.  Pryor died in December of that year.

Jennifer has been battling Pryor's children over the film -- including who should play Pryor.

Richard Jr. is threatening legal action if the movie goes forward. We reached out to Jennifer for comment ... so far no word back.

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.

Sofia Vergara and her significantly younger new man Joe Manganiello are officially out of the cage.

We're not worried about Joe, of course ... if anyone can keep a cougar at bay, it's wolf man.

John Stamos

The Beach Boys NEVER Play

Their Charles Manson Song

7/22/2014 2:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

072214_john_stamos_launch

If you're a fan of The Beach Boys song "Never Learn Not to Love," don't plan on ever hearing it live ... because John Stamos says the band never performs it ... because Charles Manson wrote it.

BACKSTORY:  Dennis Wilson befriended Manson before he became famous for all the wrong reasons. Manson had written this song, which Wilson re-worked into "Never Learn Not to Love," which made it onto their early 1969 album "20/20."

Manson became manic after the release, bugging The Beach Boys to work with him again but he was so weird their producer Terry Melcher shunned him.  Manson became enraged and the story goes ... the real target the night of the Tate murders was Melcher.

Melcher -- the son of Doris Day -- had rented the Tate house with then girlfriend Candice Bergen but moved weeks before the murders.  

Monday night in New York, our photog asked Stamos -- who regularly plays with the band -- about the Manson track. It's clear from Stamos' answer ... it's a wild part of the band's history.

Disney Star Bella Thorne

Scare The Crap Outta Me

For 3 Grand A Week

EXCLUSIVE

Bella Thorne Amityville
Disney star Bella Thorne stands to make a small fortune from her new horror flick, "Amityville" ...  but there's one perk even Bella couldn't get from producers -- fresh underwear.

The 16-year-old "Shake It Up" star is shooting the latest reincarnation of "The Amityville Horror" ... and according to her contract -- obtained by TMZ -- she's raking in $3,276 a week.

The contract obviously says producers will provide all costumes for the flick, with one exception -- undergarments ... an essential in a horror film.

But here's the real poop ... Bella gets a series of $25K bonuses if the movie does well -- up to $150K if it passes the $100M mark.

And if there's a sequel -- with 12 Amityville flicks, the odds are good -- she'll collect an additional $125K ... and bonuses of up to $300K.

That's underwear money to burn.

Eddie Murphy

Faux Son Drops $50 Million Lawsuit

7/22/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Eddie Murphy Fake Son Brando
The comedian who kinda faked being Eddie Murphy's son has now backed off his defamation suit against Eddie ... admitting the suit was BS and pinning the blame on his dumb management.

Brando tells us he was hoodwinked into filing his $50 million defamation lawsuit, in which he claimed Eddie was threatening to destroy him with lies and even physical violence.

It's easy to understand why Eddie was pissed ... Brando changed his last name to Murphy, performed with Richard Pryor's son in the "Sons of Comedy" tour, and showed up at the coffee shop Eddie frequented, often screaming, "My father won't talk to me."

It sounds like someone scared the crap out of Brando ... and we're guessing it's Eddie's pit bull lawyer Marty Singer.  So Brando dropped the case, telling us, "It was never my intention to offend Mr. Murphy."

Funny thing ... some people find $50 million lawsuits offensive.
