5/24/2016 7:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0524-dave-mirra-getty-02BMX legend Dave Mirra suffered from brain disease before dying of a self inflicted gunshot wound ... according to reports.

CTE has been linked to dementia, depression and aggression to name a few. 

Scores of pro football players have suffered from CTE -- Mirra is the first extreme sports athlete to be diagnosed with the disease.

'Botched' & 'RHOC' Stars Sued for Extortion and Harassment

5/24/2016 4:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-terry-dubrow-heather-dubrow-TMZ-01"Botched" star Dr. Terry Dubrow and "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Heather Dubrow are being sued for allegedly extorting a lawyer ... threatening to blast him on social media if he didn't make good on a business deal gone bad.

THE BACKSTORY: The Dubrows claim several years ago their accountant and the accountant's friend, attorney Steve Czik, came to the good doctor and his wife and said there was a woman who had a surefire business venture -- renting property for the World Cup, but she needed seed money.

The Dubrows claim the accountant and Czik convinced them to pony up $1.75 million, and they'd get a sweet return on that investment. The Dubrows say their accountant and Czik said it was such a no-brainer that they agreed to guarantee the loan.

Short story ... the woman never paid the Dubrows back, and they say their accountant and Czik refused to honor their guarantee. The Dubrows sued all 3.

THE ALLEGED EXTORTION: Cizik claims in a new lawsuit, Dr. Dubrow and Heather threatened him like a motha' ... pay up or they'd ruin him. Cizik claims he got an email warning, "Your photo will be published in every magazine and all over Instagram if you don't pay us," adding, "how f****** stupid are you?"

And the email went on, calling him a "lying scum sucking ass****."

He also boasted "TMZ Live" was going to cover the story.

Czik also claims harassment and defamation.

Lil Wayne I'm Sick of Birdman's Lies ... Peace Talks Off!

5/24/2016 2:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-lil-wayne-birdman-tmz-02Now we know why Lil Wayne started a "F*** Cash Money" chant at his last concert -- all talks of settling his $51 million lawsuit are off, and Wayne's laying blame directly at Birdman's feet.

Sources connected to the label tell TMZ ... settlement talks broke off within the last month. As we first reported, Weezy and Birdman started trying to patch things up back in January. You'll recall, Birdman even vowed he had Wayne's back to the death.

The centerpiece of the talks was the Cash Money honcho finally agreeing to release "Tha Carter V." We're told that is Wayne's first priority and he thought Birdman was on board too, but when nothing changed on that front ... Wayne pulled the plug on any possible settlement. 

And that's why he fired up his fans in Denver last weekend.

It's also why Wayne took that photo in Miami with Birdman's enemies, Rick Ross and Trick Daddy -- we're told talks had broken down just before this.

Prince Crushed Madonna's Music Vid Dreams ... According to His Ex-GF

5/24/2016 9:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Madonna and Prince had a heated feud over the one song they ever recorded together, and the showdown involved one of Madonna's divorces ... according to Prince's ex-gf Anna Fantastic.

Anna dropped this bombshell about Prince and the Madge's "Love Song" ... which they recorded in the late '80s. Anna says she was there when Madonna propositioned him to shoot a music video for the track.

She claims Madonna tried to play the sympathy card by telling Prince she was in the middle of divorcing Sean Penn ... and the song meant a lot to her. Prince's reply, according to Anna? "What does your divorce have to do with me or this song?"

Check out the rest of Anna's take.

Maybe Madonna's tribute was just payback -- but if nothing else, we got the song out of 'em.
