Lady Gaga

Can't Charm a Cop

She Got Wrote Up!!!

4/18/2015 7:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lady Gaga is popular with just about everyone ... except cops, because she got nailed in WeHo.

Gaga was at Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant Pump on Santa Monica Blvd. Friday around 11 PM.  It took a long time for her to wade through the crowd ... just long enough for an L.A. County Sheriff's deputy to write her driver up.

The nature of the ticket is unclear, but we think the Rolls was parking in a drop-off area and it was there too long.

The cop's clearly a Katy Perry fan.

Jay Z, Roc Nation

I'm Now the Master of My Own Destiny

4/18/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jay Z Copyright Lawsuit DismissedJay Z is once again the proud owner of some historic music.

Jay has been in an epic battle with a guy who was holding the masters to The Life and Times of S. Carter and The Dynasty albums hostage. There were 41 tracks, 31 with Jay and 10 with Beanie Sigel.

Chauncey Mahan, a sound engineer on the albums, claimed ownership and stashed boxes of tracks in a San Fernando Valley storage facility.  

Cops eventually seized the masters, but Mahan didn't back down. He sued Jay and Roc Nation in July, trying to get a piece of the action.

A judge just shut him down, ruling he waited way too long to sue.

So Jay Z owns his stuff outright.

BTW ... 'Life and Times' went triple platinum and contains songs like "Big Pimpin' and "Jigga my N****."

EXCLUSIVE

Zachary Levi Missy Peregrym DivorceLess than a year after "Chuck" star Zachary Levi and Missy Peregrym shocked their fans by getting secretly married in Hawaii last June ... the couple is now headed for divorce.

Missy was the one who filed in L.A. last week, and the docs make it sound like this is gonna be pretty amicable. According to Missy, neither of them wants spousal support, and there's no community property ... so, no reason to squabble over it.

Missy, who's on "Rookie Blue," lists their date of separation as December 3 ... which means things got rocky before they even hit the six month mark.

In a recent interview, Zachary spoke openly about how challenging marriage can be.

Little did we know.

Suge Knight's Big Break

Victim Blames Himself for Death

4/17/2015 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight has got a powerful weapon ... not a gun, and not a car. It's the guy he ran over who lived and told cops he was responsible for the other victim's death. 

Cle Bone Sloan told LAPD officers the same day he was mowed down by Suge's truck, "I was in a rage. I f***ed up. I get that 'cause a guy is dead behind this s**t."

TMZ first posted the video of the accident, and you see Bone attack Suge almost the second he enters the Tam's parking lot in Compton.  

Suge claims it was all a set up and Bone as well as others were trying to do him in, and he gunned it to save his life. Suge ran over bone, critically injuring him. Another victim, Terry Carter, died.

The court released photos of Suge's face, which appear to show the injuries he suffered when Bone attacked him. There's also a mug shot of Suge. 

Suge's attorneys are going to use the audio to make the argument ... how can a jury convict Suge if someone else confessed?

The video's hysterical ... 16-year-old Brooklyn posted an Instagram video to celebrate crossing the one million line. David just had to poke his head in and put his son in his place ... by reminding him that 52 million people follow him on Facebook. BTW, David inflated it by 2 mil.  

Brooklyn's reaction is classic.

Reality's a bitch. 

Oprah

I Won't Be Conned!!

EXCLUSIVE

0417_oprah_own_logoYou get a lawsuit, and YOU get a lawsuit ... the Florida couple who thought they could pull a fast one on OWN by pretending they were Oprah Winfrey's assistants, employees and even family members are about to find out in court why that was a very bad idea. 

According to the lawsuit Justin Jackson and alleged accomplice Angel Agarrat pretended to be tight with Oprah in order to scam businesses like Converse, Pandora and Tory Burch out of thousands of dollars in merchandise, and that's just the start.

A new lawsuit filed by OWN claims the couple would send letters with Oprah's forged signature to businesses to secure merchandise. The suit claims the goods were for Oprah's coveted holiday special.

The couple also allegedly peddled fake letters of recommendations to get hired at several swank Miami hotels, including the Fontainebleau.

OWN claims their big mistake came when they tried to score free tix to see O at American Airlines arena, posing as Johnny Depp's management team. Jackson called OWN to get the tickets, but Oprah's people wanted to know who was picking up the tickets. Jackson sent a pic of him, which allowed them to ID and finger him.

Jackson apparently has a history ... in 2007 he pretended to be Madonna's manager and scored nearly $2.4 mil in jewelry -- before being busted and convicted of felony grand theft.

OWN wants a judge to order them to stop, STAT!
