Conrad Hilton Sued Vomit-Covered Head-On Car Wreck
8/22/2016 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Conrad Hilton smashed his daddy's Range Rover head-on into another woman -- just a few hours after he dodged jail time for another high-speed wreck ... according to a new lawsuit.
Kelly Auld says Paris Hilton's troubled little bro was driving erratically in the white Range and drifting into her lane. In the docs, she says he accelerated, and clipped another car before smashing into hers.
Auld says in the seconds before the crash, she saw Hilton looking dazed with BOTH hands above his head as he careened toward her. In the suit, she says witnesses saw Conrad throw a bong out his window, and he was covered in vomit when he got out of the SUV.
The vehicle was registered to Hilton & Hyland, Rick Hilton's real estate firm ... according to the suit.
She's done her research too -- Auld points out Conrad entered a court-ordered drug treatment program last year, and had been prohibited from driving.
And get this ... she says the accident happened May 19 -- the day after Conrad struck a plea deal for a 100 mph wreck near Palm Springs.
Jeremy Meeks No Dreamy Shoots With McMug Shot
8/22/2016 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bella and Gigi Hadid's little bro is NOT teaming up with an ex-con -- no matter how much of a handsome bastard the guy is.
Jeremy Meeks -- the former Cali state prisoner known as Dreamy McMug Shot -- posted a pic with Anwar Hadid ... which became a thing on the Internet, and started rumors the guys were doing a modeling shoot together.
Sources close to Anwar tell us he and Jeremy were introduced in Bev Hills last week, and Jeremy asked for a pic because he's a fan. Anwar obliged because he's a nice guy.
Jeremy's no dummy though -- he's trying to make it big in modeling, which is probably why he didn't caption the photo.
Never hurts to be Hadid-adjacent.
Mickey Rourke I'm Gonna Bash Lenny Dykstra's Face Up ... ON SIGHT
8/22/2016 4:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Remember, Rourke initially called Dykstra out after the ex-MLB star went on Howard Stern and claimed Mickey owes him $30k from back in the day ... insinuating it was drug related.
Dykstra fired back -- saying Mickey's face was an insult to the facelift industry.
Now, Rourke has apparently had enough -- and in one of the most rage-filled, angry rants we've ever seen ... the actor swears on everything he loves that he will "knock all his f***ing teeth out again."
Dykstra ... don't say we didn't warn ya ...

DMX has a challenge most parents would find daunting ... remembering the names of all of his kids, which now number 15.

The rapper missed the delivery -- he was in Arizona when Exodus popped out. But he flew to NYC for the baby's first night in the world.
X tells us he's overjoyed, calling the baby a "blessing."
Lots of blessings.

Shannen Doherty Scores Settlement in Cancer Lawsuit
8/22/2016 1:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Shannen Doherty just landed a settlement in that huge $15 million lawsuit she filed against her ex-manager for allegedly screwing up her health insurance.
We broke the story ... Shannen sued her former management firm, claiming they mismanaged her insurance premiums and let her policy lapse at a critical time when doctors could've done an early detection of her breast cancer.
According to docs, both sides agreed to settle the matter late last week. The amount of money Shannen is getting is confidential. The battle was really heating up right before the settlement -- lawyers for her ex-manager tried to get Shannen to sit for round 2 of a deposition ... questioning how sick she really was from her cancer and treatments.
It's a moot point now.
While Kim posts pics of her kids all the time, her hubby almost NEVER does. But you gotta see the shot he uploaded last night -- she's SO adorable.
Demi Lovato Sleigh Bells Sues Are Ya Listenin' Demi?
8/22/2016 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Demi Lovato has been sued by the group Sleigh Bells for allegedly ripping off their critically acclaimed song, "Infinity Guitars."
Demi's song "Stars" -- released last year as a bonus track in her album "Confident" -- has "virtually identical content" to "Infinity Guitars" ... so claims the group. The lawsuit says, "The combination of the hand claps and bass drum, structured as 3 quarter beats and a rest ... is at least substantially similar in both works."
"Infinity Guitars," released in 2010, was a massive critically acclaimed hit, scoring in Rolling Stone as one of the best songs of the year.
Last November, producers said "We did not use any samples in Demi Lovato's song Stars. Demi was also not involved with the production. She only wrote top line."
Sleigh Bells wants some serious profits from Demi and the other defendants, and they want to yank her song from getting more play.
She's come so far ... man, this is hard to hear.
U.S. Swimmer Jimmy Feigen Charity Donation to Boost Brazil's Olympians
8/22/2016 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Swimmer Jimmy Feigen's nearly $11k deal to avoid a Rio jail could backfire against future Team USA Olympians.
TMZ has learned Feigen's $10,800 donation has been tagged to spruce up training facilities for the Reaction Institute in the Rio favela known as City of God. Specifically, we're told the money is going to help fix walls and prevent weather damage to judo equipment.
That equipment is used to give children from the favelas judo training, and put them on the road to becoming Olympians -- who might one day whoop-up on American judo fighters. Brazil's judo gold medalist this year, Rafaela Silva, once trained at the Institute ... so it has a good track record.
As we reported, Feigen struck a deal with prosecutors in Rio ... who agreed to let him off the hook, if he made the donation.
Folks at the Reaction Institute are pumped for the dough, and tell us they hope Jimmy will visit once the work is done -- but we're guessing he won't be back in Brazil anytime soon.

Disney Alligator Attack Guest Sounded Warning Before Attack
8/22/2016 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A guest at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort saw an alligator looming in the area where 2-year-old Lane Graves was playing ... and she even sounded the alarm to someone at the hotel.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Orange County Sheriff's Office released a final report -- obtained by TMZ -- about the circumstances surrounding Lane's death.
According to the report, Shawna Giacomini, a North Carolina tourist, told investigators she was on the beach at 8:15 PM with her 2 daughters, and the girls saw an alligator about 5 feet from the shore, near the marsh. The older daughter told the Walt Disney World AV/Movie Coordinator about the gator.
The trio went to the store, and when they returned at around 9 PM the attack had already occurred.
The report details the attack, explaining Lane went toward the water with his dad and a pail. The dad saw a splash, looked over and saw the gator had locked onto Lane's head. He tried pulling the gator's mouth open, to no avail, and the gator dragged Lane into deep water.
The cause of death was cranio-cervical trauma and drowning.
The report is damning because of the lack of signs warning of gators, which the authors call "predatory."
Oh yeah, it gets worse from here, y'all.
