Ronnie from 'Jersey Shore' Bloody Mess in Vegas

7/21/2017 11:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

12:25 PM PT -- A rep for Ronnie says he was at TAO when a fight broke out. He wasn't involved, but it got outta control ... and he was attempting to cover his gf when someone threw a bottle or glass. We're told it shattered on Ronnie's hand, and that's the reason for all the blood ... on both of them.

TAO has a slightly different version of events -- its rep says no one else was involved in the incident, and claims Ronnie simply broke a bottle he was holding. The club also says an on-site EMT treated Ronnie.

We'd say no blood, no foul but ... Ronnie from "Jersey Shore" had some kind of bloody encounter in Vegas early Friday morning, and his girlfriend was clearly none too pleased.

An eyewitness who took this photo tells TMZ he saw Ronnie and the woman at around 1:15 AM coming out of a bathroom at The Venetian hotel and casino. He says Ronnie was soaked in blood with a plastic bag wrapped around his left hand.

The woman was also covered in blood, although the eyewitness says it appeared to him the blood was not the result of a fight between the 2 of them. It also seemed she was uninjured.

We're told security was flanking Ronnie and escorted him to an exit. It's unclear if security was trying to protect him or throw him out of the hotel.

We reached out to Ronnie and his rep ... so far no word back.

Jada Pinkett Smith Sorry, Will & I Don't Bang Other Couples ... For Now

7/21/2017 10:56 AM PDT

Jada Pinkett Smith is putting a giant Hollywood rumor to bed about her own bed ... she and husband Will Smith don't screw around with other couples.

Jada was promoting her new flick, "Girls Trip," on 'Watch What Happens Live' when a caller asked what the craziest rumor is that Jada's ever heard about herself. It took a second before Jada laughed off that it was one about her and Will being Hollywood's notorious swingers.

Funny thing is ... Jada made it sound like the door to the bedroom could be open to other couples in the future.

One thing she did come clean on though ... how she and Will have remained together for 23 years, which is no easy feat in Hollywood.

Blac Chyna New BF Gets BC Tatted On Him! How's That Look, Rob?

7/21/2017 9:59 AM PDT

Blac Chyna's new man is all-in on her brand ... and they're both making sure Rob Kardashian's aware.

Chyna and singer Mechie -- who she's been hooking up with for a couple weeks -- shot a video showing off a very fresh looking 'BC' tattoo behind his ear. If it wasn't clear already ... she's definitely moved on from Rob.

She has a bad history with tattoos and dudes (*cough, Future*) ... so, interesting that HE got the ink this time around.

This isnt the first time Chyna's rubbed her relationship with Mechie in Rob's face either. When Rob went on his social media tirade against her ... he posted a video Chyna allegedly sent him of her and Mechie kissing in bed ... as well as the photo with the other guy, Ferrari.

As we reported ... Chyna got a restraining order against Rob and he vowed to stop slut-shaming her online. This should test Rob's will power.

7/21/2017 9:14 AM PDT
Breaking News

11:34 PM PT -- The White House has just announced Sarah Huckabee Sanders as the new Press Secretary and Anthony Scaramucci officially as Communications Director.They won't have Sean Spicer to kick around anymore.

President Trump's Press Secretary resigned from his post Friday morning, saying he strongly disagreed with Trump's pick for Communications Director ... Anthony Scaramucci

Scaramucci, a NY financier, would have been Spicer's boss, and he was reportedly not down with that power structure. Spicer was, arguably, the face of Trump's administration -- frequently arguing with reporters, and was famously portrayed by Melissa McCarthy on 'SNL.' A crowd fave, for sure.

Spicey's taking his motorized podium and heading home.

Chester Bennington Hanging Almost Identical To Chris Cornell Suicide

7/21/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chester Bennington may have mimicked the suicide of his close friend, Chris Cornell, because they died in virtually identical ways.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the Linkin Park singer was found hanging from a door separating his bedroom from his closet. TMZ broke the story, Chris Cornell died hanging from a hotel door separating the bedroom from the bathroom.

We're also told Chester was found with a belt around his neck. Chris was found with an exercise band around his neck.

Our sources say there was a partially empty bottle of alcohol in the room where Chester died, but no evidence of drugs.

And we're told Chester did not leave a suicide note in the room. Neither did Chris. 

TMZ broke the story ... Chester killed himself on Thursday, which would have been Chris Cornell's 53rd birthday.

EXCLUSIVE

Sam Heughan knows this about Comic-Con -- it's a hunter's paradise, if ya catch our drift.

The "Outlander" star was at LAX Thursday giddy about hitting up the nerdy shindig in San Diego. The show's taking its cast down there and, while he's ready to promote the show, it seems Sam knows a thing or two about the debauchery that goes on down there, too.

It's already lore about how much fans hook up, but Sam's got a feeling celebs are getting in on the action too. He even admits there's one gal he's eyeing heading into the weekend.

Sorry, Sam ... but your target's gonna be a tough pull.

Meek Mill Done with Drake ... Takes Shot at Nicki On New Track

7/21/2017 7:06 AM PDT

Meek Mill dropped Nicki Minaj like a fly and buzzed off, not the other way around ... at least that's how his latest lyrics make it sound.

Meek dropped his "Wins & Losses" album Friday, and on the track "1942 Flows," he makes Nicki out to be an emotional ex who would do anything to have him back: "Cut her off, act like she's dead and it's killing her."

There's also a line where Meek warns bloggers not to ask him about his relationship with her.

Nicki and Meek dated for almost 2 years, but ended things around December -- and it wasn't pretty since there were cheating allegations

Your move, Nicki.

Justin Bieber Banned from China For Being a Baaaaad Boy ...

7/21/2017 6:38 AM PDT

Justin Bieber found out it IS too late to say he's sorry -- China just banned his ass for bad behavior.

Beijing's Culture Bureau responded Friday to a fan's request asking why the Biebs' Purpose tour has scheduled dates in Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore and Hong Kong but NOT China.

According to the bureau, Justin pissed off the People's Republic and they said, "Justin Bieber is a gifted singer, but he is also a controversial young foreign idol. As far as we are concerned, he has engaged in a series of bad behaviors, both in his social life and during a previous performance in China."

The bureau didn't dive into specifics but you'll recall Justin, back in 2013, got carried onto the Great Wall of China ... emperor-style, no less.

Breaking News

Even the guy who plays "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" at Dodgers Stadium was affected by the death of Chester Bennington ... and honored the Linkin Park singer with a musical tribute on the stadium organ.

Just before the Dodgers took the field against the Braves, team organist Dieter Ruehle played his own version of "Numb" over the loudspeakers.

O.J. Simpson Paroled Owner of The Bronco Could Be Big Winner

7/21/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The white Ford Bronco from O.J. Simpson's car chase stands to make its current owner a ton of dough ... if a buyer steps up to the plate.

O.J.'s former sports agent, Mike Gilbert, owns the Bronco -- he bought it from A.C. Cowlings -- and sources close to him tell us he's never really been interested in selling, but only because the offers weren't good enough. We're told he's always considered it an investment, and this might be the perfect time to -- as they say -- sell high.

Our sources tell us Mike's been offered $250k for the white Bronco in the past but turned it down right away. His target price is more in the $750k to $1 million range, and now that Juice's parole's been granted ... Gilbert can probably get it.

We're told Mike has no emotional attachment to the Bronco, but he'll hold onto it unless he gets what he wants. If not, he'll pass it down to his kids.

One more thing -- we're told there's one person he will NOT sell to ... and that's O.J.

The white Bronco's currently sitting in the Alcatraz East Crime Museum in Pigeon Forge, TN.

EXCLUSIVE

R. Kelly turned underage women into slaves ... so claims the family of one of the young women who is living with the rapper.

Joycelyn Savage's father, Timothy, tells us Kelly started some of these relationships when the girl was 17, and in his book that's a crime. Timothy goes on to claim the singer's relationship with these women turned physically abusive.  

But Timothy isn't done with his accusations. He compares the "relationships" to slavery, saying there was no free will on the part of the young women.

Timothy also vehemently denies Joycelyn's allegations he set her up with R. Kelly ... even suggesting the singer forced her to say that.

He also insists the FBI is in the throes of an investigation, especially targeting Florida.

EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner's parting ways with the first home she ever bought, but it took one final price slash to make it happen ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Kylie sold her 5,100 sq. ft. Calabasas pad for $3.15 million, a bit less than the $3.3 asking price. Our sources say the buyer is Bellami Hair founder Nikki Eslami.

We're told she still came out slightly ahead in the deal, which was brokered by real estate giant Tomer Fridman.

Kylie's not homeless  -- she scooped up 3 other properties in the area ... including one she rents to Rob.
