'Property Brothers' Star Bouncer Tried a Fixer-Upper ... ON MY FACE!
4/29/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Property Brothers" star Jonathan Scott ended up in a bouncer's headlock while he was hanging in a Fargo bar, and now police are investigating.
Cops tell TMZ Jonathan was at Dempsey's Public House Saturday night when the altercation started. It wasn't much of a fight -- we're told the bouncer quickly subdued Jonathan.
It's unclear what started the fight, but cops tell us the bar was trying to get people out before the 2 AM closing time. Jonathan called 911 at 1:57 AM, claiming he was assaulted by the bouncer.
A source close to Jonathan tells us he happened to get in the middle of other people who were arguing, but had nothing to do with the situation. Cops say Dempsey's staffers deny any assault, although the photos make it pretty clear something went down.
No one was arrested, but cops say they're investigating and will review surveillance video to see if charges are necessary.

4/29/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ex-UFC octagon girl Amber Miller says Jenna stirred up her social media minions to attack her during a "self-proclaimed roast" of Amber. In docs, Amber says Jenna told her thousands of followers to "go after" Amber and they responded.
Amber says she's been flooded with death wishes and taunts from team Jenna, and claims Jenna threatened to throw acid on her face -- which is why she filed a request for a restraining order.
Amber says the harassment's been going on ever since she started dating ex-UFC star Tito ... who, of course, has 2 kids with Jenna.
Jenna now has to stay 100 yards away from Amber -- and stop all forms of harassment.

Prince Came So Close to Becoming the Purple Piano Man
4/29/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The customized piano Prince played at his final public performance was thiiis close to getting him to do something he almost NEVER did ... sign a big time endorsement deal.
Yamaha exec, Chris Gero, tells TMZ the company started negotiations with Prince's reps 4 months ago. The plan was for Yamaha to provide instruments and round-the-clock service for the remainder of Prince's "Piano & A Microphone" tour.
Yamaha sent Prince a $200,000 purple grand piano a few days before he died in hopes of closing the deal -- and it seemed to be working. Prince excitedly tweeted about it, and had it onstage with him when he played briefly during his Paisley Park dance party on the Saturday before his death.
Gero says all signs were pointing to them closing the deal when Prince died.
As for what happens to the piano? Yamaha owns it -- since the deal was never inked -- and it's still at Paisley Park. Gero says they've already been contacted by several museums -- including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame -- looking to lock down Prince memorabilia.

DJ Whoo Kid Lights Out, No License ... Arrested in NYC
4/28/2016 12:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
DJ Whoo Kid got pulled over by cops for driving in the dark ... without his headlights, and things quickly went downhill from there 'cause he ended up getting arrested.
Whoo Kid was driving his Escalade in downtown Manhattan, around 1:30 AM Tuesday, when cops noticed his headlights were off. They also discovered his driver's license had been revoked, and there was a warrant for his arrest -- so, off to jail he went.
The Shade 45 and G-Unit DJ had a similar run-in with cops in 2014, but failed to show up for court ... hence the warrant.
Cops say he paid a fine and was released later on Tuesday.
Whoo Kid tells us he didn't realize there was a warrant out for his failure to appear in the 2014 case, since he paid the ticket. He has a June court date for this latest arrest.

Charlie Sheen Ex-Wives Powwow for More Child Support Kids at Risk
4/28/2016 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller are meeting right now with their business managers and a psychologist for one of the twins to make a case for more child support, because they say the children are at serious risk.
As we reported, Charlie had his monthly support reduced from $55k he paid to both Brooke and Denise. Charlie claimed he could no longer afford that amount, and the judge reduced the support payments to $10k each.
Sources connected with Brooke and Denise tell us, they cannot afford to cover basic bills. We're told one child is receiving significant psychological help and there are other needs as well among the 4 kids.
We're told insurance is not covering even basic bills, and neither Denise nor Brooke can cut it.
Denise, Brooke, the business manager and psychiatrist, Charles Sophy, who has treated the children in the past, are meeting to formulate a game plan so they can go back to court.

Usher Naked Selfie ... Just The Tip Of The Iceberg
4/28/2016 12:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Usher just broke the cardinal rule of taking a naked selfie by posting a tad bit more than he probably realized on Snapchat.
Ursh snapped the pic Thursday and captioned it "blowin off steam" with an emoji covering his junk. Upon closer look it was hard to ignore that the emoji failed to cover all of his man parts and the tip of his dong was left sticking out.
We had to retouch it a bit since it's technically a d*** pic, but you can use your imagination and probably Google and find the real thing.
It doesn't appear he did it on purpose, but if he did, he's sending the message that size matters.
'American Idol' Parent Company Goes Bankrupt Show Became a Money Pit
4/28/2016 11:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The media giant behind "American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance" has filed for bankruptcy, and part of the problem is ... 'Idol' was hemorrhaging money in its final seasons.
Core Media Group filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy Thursday morning saying it's several hundred million dollars in the hole, and needs to reorganize its debts. Core and all its subsidiaries say they have $73 million in assets, but more than $512 million in debt.
One of its biggest creditors is 'Idol' creator Simon Fuller, who is owed more than $3.3 million. Several law firms and music labels, as well as the FOX Network are also owed dough.
Core Media's filing includes many of its holdings, including 19 Entertainment which owns the recording rights of 'Idol' superstars like Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson.
In the bankruptcy docs, Core says revenue started sliding after 2012 when 'Idol' ratings started declining. For instance in 2014, earnings dropped $15 million from the previous year.
