Swizz Beatz Big Win in Massive Car Theft Lawsuit

6/20/2017 9:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

No wonder Swizz Beatz went back to bed after learning he'd been sued for $42 million -- he thought it was BS, and now a judge agrees ... she's tossed the car theft lawsuit against him.

The music producer scored the victory Monday, when the judge said the car leasing company, Metro-Gem, couldn't offer any facts to prove Swizz conspired to stiff the company.

As we reported .... Metro claimed it plunked down millions so Swizz's company could acquire fancy cars. It sought $42 mil in damages, but the judge said no dice.

Swizz's attorney, Mathew West, said, "This lawsuit was nothing more than an attempted shakedown of a public figure that had nothing to do with the facts. We are gratified, but not surprised, that the Court agreed with us."

Miles Teller Blames Bar for Overserving Him Before Arrest

6/20/2017 7:31 AM PDT

Miles Teller blames a San Diego bar for overserving him and putting him in a state that got him arrested.

This video was shot at PB Shore Club ... the place Miles and his buddies were partying Saturday night. TMZ broke the story ... Miles got so drunk he attracted the attention of a cop who saw him on a sidewalk, nearly falling into traffic. Police say Miles was uncooperative and they ended up arresting and booking him for public intoxication.

Late Monday he simply said, "I blame Shore Club" -- insinuating the bartenders shoulda cut him off.

Miles called out TMZ, saying he was not arrested but rather detained, despite the cops telling us he was not only arrested and booked, but they took his mug shot.

Blac Chyna & Rob K. Back with a Bang

6/20/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are back on again ... or at the very least getting it on again.

Rob showed up at Chyna's doorstep last week and hasn't left.  

We showed you how they spent Father's Day ... at Disneyland with 7-month-old Dream. As we said, it didn't make a whole lot of sense for them to take an infant to a theme park she can't appreciate, so it seems liked it was more for them than the kid.

Now we've found out Rob's been there every day and every night ... going on a week. They've been socializing with friends and family with BBQ's and a pool party, and they've taken hikes together.

Chyna dropped a ton of cash on gifts for Father's Day, including a Louis Vuitton bag, a customized Dodgers hat, sneakers and white and blue roses emblazoned with an "R."

We're told this has nothing to do with a TV show or business ... they're back into each other, at least for now.

EXCLUSIVE

"Wife Swap" double murder suspect Jacob Stockdale used a shotgun to kill his mother and brother, both of whom were shot in the head ... according to cops.

Law enforcement sources tell us Jacob fired twice at his mom, Kathryn with the 20-gauge shotgun and left her body in an upstairs bathroom in their Ohio home.

Jacob allegedly shot his younger brother, James, once in the head near the front door ... then unloaded on himself about 10 feet from James' body. Jacob shot himself in the face with the shotgun ... and miraculously survived.

Sources close to the case tell us Jacob was trying to communicate with officers when they arrived, but they couldn't understand him. He was last listed in critical condition after being choppered to a hospital.

One last thing ... we're told Jacob's father was not home at the time of the shooting, and was stopped less than a mile from the home on his way back from work when cops broke the news.

'Dance Moms' Teen Sued We Had a Deal, You Broke It ... Now It's Gonna Cost Ya!

6/19/2017 5:51 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mackenzie's legal team says, "This is a frivolous lawsuit, which we intend to prove in a court of law. This is yet another example of a production company taking advantage of a young rising star.”Former "Dance Moms" star Mackenzie Ziegler is two-timing a music producer by bailing on performances and record sessions, and working with another producer on the side ... according to a lawsuit.

Kismet Music is going after 13-year-old Mackenzie and her mom, Melissa Gisoni ... saying they breached their 2014 deal.

In the docs, Kismet says when it signed Mackenzie -- who has more than a million YouTube followers -- she agreed to "deliver technically and commercially satisfactory records." In exchange, Kismet would try to secure a recording contract and distribution deal for her.

The producers say Mackenzie and her mom didn't seem to have any issues with the contract when they were cashing checks associated with music released under the deal -- but in 2016 something changed. According to the suit, Mackenzie started skipping recording sessions and meetings -- and when Kismet tried to contact her, at least 14 times ... radio silence.

Maddie Ziegler's kid sister is also working with another producer, a clear violation of her exclusivity deal with Kismet ... according to the suit.

Kismet is suing for 15% of Mackenzie's net profits under the deal.

Tiger Woods I'm Getting Professional Help ... for Rx Pill Issues

6/19/2017 4:40 PM PDT
Breaking News

Tiger Woods says he's getting "professional help" for his issues with prescription medication in the wake of his DUI arrest -- but he's not describing the situation as rehab. 

"I'm currently receiving professional help to manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder," Woods said in a statement. 

"I want to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support and understanding especially the fans and players on tour."

As we previously reported, Woods was arrested on May 29 in Jupiter, FL -- and was extremely out of it. He could barely stand up straight and couldn't tie his shoes. 

Woods blamed his state on a bad mixture of prescription medication. 

Woods going public about the professional help could well be a strategy in his pending DUI case. It's often used to show the judge that he's taking his problem seriously, which could affect sentencing. 

Woods was spotted out in Florida with his kids over the weekend -- so it doesn't appear he's in a live-in facility for his treatment. 

Cedric the Entertainer Natural Gas Leak Making My Family Sick

6/19/2017 4:36 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cedric the Entertainer's family suffered nausea, nosebleeds, vomiting and vertigo because the Southern California Gas Company allowed an environmental catastrophe to unfold ... according to the lawsuit he just filed.

In the docs, Cedric says the Gas Co. is responsible for releasing massive amounts of natural gas, hazardous chemicals and toxic pollutants into the air, starting in October, 2015. In SoCal the disaster's known as the Porter Ranch gas leak.

According to the suit, obtained by TMZ, the leak went on without interruption for nearly 4 months ... releasing around 100,000 tons of natural gas. The suit says that's 220 times greater volume than the amount of oil released during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Cedric says the leak happened because the Gas Company failed to replace an emergency safety valve back in 1979.

Aside from their medical issues, Cedric says the leak also hit him in the wallet ... as his property value has plummeted. 

We've reached out to SoCal Gas, so far no word back. 

Miles Teller Busted for Public Drunkenness Uncooperative with Cops

6/19/2017 9:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2:08 PM PT -- Miles just tweeted, "Went down to SD to see my buddy before he deployed. I wasn't arrested I was detained bc there was no evidence to charge me with a crime." 

For the record, the San Diego PD tells TMZ Miles was arrested and booked for misdemeanor public intoxication. They also took a mug shot. Miles Teller was arrested early Sunday morning after he was literally falling down drunk and refusing to cooperate with cops ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Teller was partying with a group of guys in San Diego when an officer noticed the actor was having trouble standing on the sidewalk. We're told the cop walked up to Miles and started questioning him, but he quickly became uncooperative. 

Our sources say that's when Teller lost his balance and almost fell into a traffic lane. The cop cuffed him, and Miles had trouble standing in one spot.

Now the turning point. San Diego offers a detox program where cops will take someone who is drunk to a center run by volunteers. The center has cots where someone can stay for 4 hours and sleep it off. The cop offered to take Miles there but we're told he refused.

At that point Miles could have been arrested, but cops still took him to the detox center ... hoping he'd cooperate. That didn't happen. We're told he refused to follow directions so the staff rejected him.

At that point, Miles was arrested for being drunk in public ... a misdemeanor. He was in jail for around 4 hours and he was released without bail.

Miles' rep had no comment.
