Georgia Surgeon Accused of Dancing During Operations

5/23/2018 3:11 PM PDT

A plastic surgeon in Georgia is now being put under a microscope after allegedly putting patients under the knife with music blaring ... and her body groovin'.

Dr. Windell Davis Boutte has reportedly been sued multiple times over the last few months  -- and in some cases, reportedly settled -- for alleged malpractice after being accused of dancing during her surgeries ... and posting the clips online. 

A lot of the videos were reportedly used as evidence in the malpractice suits -- and it sure looks like Dr. Boutte was getting her boogie on while cutting patients open. One malpractice case allegedly left one woman, Icilma Cornelius, with permanent brain damage.

According to reports of the lawsuit the woman's son filed against Boutte, the doc allegedly had to call an ambulance after Cornelius suffered heart failure during a tummy tuck surgery since she didn't have the proper equipment to deal with the emergency at her practice.

Before paramedics could rush her away, Boutte is accused of needing to stitch Cornelius' skin back together to avoid the infecting the wounds, delaying transport. Not only that, but the son claims her office's elevator couldn't fit the stretcher, and his mom had to be carried down.

Once at the hospital, her son says she was diagnosed with permanent brain damage, leaving her requiring lifelong care. The case was reportedly settled ... unclear if dancing was alleged.

Michael Rotondo Evicted 30-Yr-Old Says My Parents Are Not Good People

5/23/2018 1:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old man whose mom and dad sued to get him booted from their home, claims he'll gladly leave ... eventually ... but he definitely won't forgive his folks.

Rotondo was on "TMZ Live" talking about the court case he lost. The judge sided with his parents and told the grown-ass man -- who doesn't pay rent -- he needed to heed his parents' eviction notice. He says he plans to appeal and, for now, he's still living with them.

He told us nothing's changed in the house, as far as his relationship with his parents -- icy cold as ever. But he really unloaded on them when we asked if he thinks his parents are good people.

As for getting the hell outta Dodge, getting a j-o-b, and getting his own place? Rotondo says he's got a game plan ... although we doubt his parents will like his timeline.

BTW, his Skype signal crapped out right in the middle of our interview, so we finished up by phone. Insert your own "cost of wifi" joke here.

Cynthia Nixon Crushed by Cuomo ... Loses Party Endorsement

5/23/2018 1:43 PM PDT
Breaking News

Cynthia Nixon suffered a landslide defeat in her bid to become Governor of New York, but she's vowing it ain't over yet.

NY state's Democratic convention kicked off Wednesday, and sitting Gov. Andrew Cuomo got more than 95% of the delegate votes to secure the party's endorsement for a third term. The former "Sex and the City" star came up woefully short of securing the 25% she needed just to guarantee her a spot on September's primary ballot.

Cynthia -- who announced her candidacy back in March -- won less than 5% of the delegates. It'll be an uphill battle, but she says plan B is to get thousands of signatures on a petition to get on the ballot.

Britney Spears Forget More Support!!! It Was K-Fed's Idea to Have More Kids

5/23/2018 10:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Federline made his own bed when he decided to have more children after divorcing Britney Spears, and it's not her problem that he's now strapped for cash and seeking more child support ... sources close to Britney tell TMZ.

K-Fed has asked a judge to up his $20,000 a month child support payment he gets from Britney, claiming their 2 kids enjoy a lavish lifestyle with her and all he can provide them with is a lifestyle that is relatively meager. He claims the kids go on 5-star vacations, they have every toy imaginable, a lighted tennis court, all because he claims she makes $34 million a year, while he only pulls in $3k a month.

One Britney source with direct knowledge of the situation tells TMZ, "Britney spends no more on the boys than he does. He's barely getting by because he has to support 3 additional kids and his wife and himself on funds Brit gives him for their 2 kids."

The source goes on, "The law is that both parents are to contribute to their children's support. Where is his contribution?"

Federline says his expenses are around $23,000 a month. So, when you add up his earnings and Britney's $20k a month, he currently breaks even.

Offset No Charges In ATL Car Crash Case

5/23/2018 1:07 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Offset isn't going to have to answer for what led up to a nasty car crash he was in last week, or why he left the scene -- 'cause cops aren't pursuing it ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us the investigation into a wreck Offset was involved in -- which sent him to the hospital -- is officially closed, and no charges will be filed.

We're told the matter will be treated as an abandoned/recovered vehicle case, with only a tree being hit and nobody else other than Offset being hurt or injured. Of course, Offset posted multiple gruesome photos of the aftermath ... they were gnarly, to say the least.

As we reported ... police initially wanted to know why Offset had left the scene. There were no victims, witnesses or damage to other vehicles, but cops still wanted to talk to him to see if anyone else was there. He was never ID'd as the driver, BTW.

The whole thing's moot now, though ... case closed.

Lenny Dykstra Arrested Allegedly Pulled Gun On Uber Driver ... Had Coke and Molly

5/23/2018 12:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-MLB star Lenny Dykstra was arrested early Wednesday morning in New Jersey after allegedly pulling a gun on an Uber driver and threatening to kill him.

Oh, and cops say he also had cocaine and ecstasy on him at the time of the arrest.

Officials say the 55-year-old was busted outside Linden, NJ police headquarters after a terrified Uber driver told authorities Dykstra pulled a gun, put it to his head, and threatened to kill him. 

So, what set Dykstra off?

The driver claims Lenny had asked to change destinations during the ride -- but the driver refused ... and Lenny flipped out.

Cops say the Uber driver furiously began honking the horn in the hopes of signaling police -- and then finally ran from  the car and alerted police.

When cops got to Dykstra, they did NOT find a gun ... however, they did find cocaine, marijuana, and MDMA (ecstasy).

Dykstra was arrested for making terroristic threats, and numerous drug possession offenses.

He was taken to Union County Jail ... where he was later released.

Dykstra hit up Twitter this afternoon to address the arrest ... quoting Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" ... "But I keep cruising, can't stop, won't stop moving, It's like I got this music in my mind, sayin' gonna be alright."

Olivia Munn On Aaron Rodgers' Family Drama 'Neither Side Is Clean'

5/23/2018 12:00 PM PDT
Breaking News

When it comes to the drama between Aaron Rodgers and his family, Olivia Munn says ... "I don't think either side of the road is clean."

Aaron's ex-girlfriend -- who RARELY speaks about the Packers QB -- opened up Wednesday on "Andy Cohen Live" ... and addressed the rumors that SHE was the cause of the rift between Aaron and his parents and brothers.

Remember, there was that famous scene on "The Bachelorette" (starring Aaron's brother, Jordan) when the family had an empty chair at the dinner table to symbolize Aaron's absence.

Munn says the truth is ... Aaron had stopped talking to his family about 8 months before they started dating in 2014 and she was the one who tried to convince him to reconcile!

"On my last day when I was filming 'The Newsroom,' I spent the day in my trailer just encouraging him to, like, have an honest conversation with your parents."

Munn suggested there were jealously issues with Aaron's father and brothers -- who each had dreams of sports success -- and it created a complicated family dynamic. 

"I don't think either side of the road is clean," Munn said ... "But, I do think it’s NOT okay when you try to stand on someone’s shoulders and then throw dirt in their face, which is what I think they did with him."

Munn and Rodgers called it quits about a year ago and Olivia says they no longer keep in touch.

Rodgers is now dating Danica Patrick.

Mike Pence & Trump Celebrate NFL's New Anthem Policy ... 'Winning'

5/23/2018 11:07 AM PDT
Breaking News

Mike Pence is declaring victory over the NFL's new policy requiring players on the field to stand for the national anthem ... tweeting out, "#Winning."

Funny ... Pence tweeted out an article on the new policy from -- of all places -- CNN, which his boss has repeatedly trashed as "fake news." 

Also, Donald Trump retweeted Pence. 

But, this news is very real ... the NFL owners and commish have announced a new policy that says players don't HAVE to come out on the field for the anthem, but if they do ... they must stand. 

A team can be fined by the league if players do not follow the new rule. 

Players who don't want to stand are allowed to stay in the locker room for the anthem. 

The policy is already being ripped apart from critics who see the rule as a violation of players' rights.

President Trump Can't Hide from Haters on Twitter ... It's Unconstitutional!!

5/23/2018 10:46 AM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump's taking a big ole 'L' in court and on Twitter, and it's a victory -- of sorts -- for the likes of Chrissy Teigen and Rosie O'Donnell.

A federal judge ruled on Wednesday it's unconstitutional for the Prez to block anyone on the social media platform just because they disagree with him or his policies. The judge said that because he's a government official, Trump can't censor opposing views. 

POTUS has famously blocked Chrissy, Rosie, Stephen King and, for some reason (fear of vampires?), author Anne Rice -- not to mention many non-famous tweeters.

Anyway, the judge said it doesn't matter that Trump started his Twitter account before he was in the White House -- fact is, he's there now, and he works for the American people.

Even the ones who strongly disagree with or troll him on the Internet.

Ariana Grande Mac's DUI is Not My Fault ... I'm Not His Babysitter!!!

5/23/2018 10:01 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ariana Grande is lashing out at anyone who thinks Mac Miller's car wreck and DUI is somehow her fault because, as she puts it ... she's NOT his mother or his babysitter.

Ariana responded to one Twitter troll in particular ... saying she had cared for Mac and tried to support his sobriety for years, "But shaming/blaming women for a man's inability to keep his s**t together is a very major problem."

Mac has talked about his struggles with the bottle in the past, and Ariana says it was definitely an issue while they dated. She says, "Of course I didn't share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was."

TMZ broke the story ... Mac smashed up his G-Wagon, and got busted for DUI ... one week after he and Ariana announced their split.

She says she'll continue praying for Mac to figure out his problems, but adds ... it's absurd to expect any woman to "stay in a toxic relationship" just because Mac wrote a song ("Cinderella") about her. 

Marlon Wayans Outraged Over Houston's Arrests ... 'One Day it Will Be Your Ass'

5/23/2018 7:07 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Wayans is outraged over the arrest of 3 women at a Houston's restaurant in Atlanta, saying you don't have to be black to rise up, because if you don't it's only a matter of time before it happens to you.

We got Marlon Tuesday leaving Equinox in WeHo ... and he delivered a fiery parking lot sermon ... saying just because the curly fries and steaks are delicious is no excuse to turn a blind eye to what he believes is a human rights violation.

As we reported, the 3 women were arrested after a security guard dragged them out of the women's restroom.

Marlon doesn't think this is a black issue ... it's an issue of human decency and if people don't rise up and be counted they will eventually find themselves on the chopping block. 

Scheana Marie Look What the Tide Washed Up ... 'BiP' Hottie Robby Hayes!

5/23/2018 9:21 AM PDT

"Vanderpump Rules" star Scheana Marie's bathing suit says it best -- now that she's hooking up with another hot reality TV star ... in Hawaii -- yeah, "Living My Best Life" definitely applies here.

Scheana and "Bachelor in Paradise'' star Robby Hayes were strolling through the surf Tuesday in Oahu. Rumors started to swirl they were hookin' up back in March, but they both claimed they were just good friends. We'd say VERY good friends, based on these shots.

Scheana had previously been linked to Rob Valletta after her divorce from Mike Shay.

One thing Robby and Scheana can't deny -- they look good together.
