Connor from 'Bachelorette' Fires Warning Shot at Lincoln ... 'Tell All' Show Will Be Your Worst Nightmare

6/19/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Connor Obrochta from "The Bachelorette" wants his fellow contestant Lincoln Adim's attention ... so he can tell him to stay the hell away from Becca Kufrin and the rest of her suitors when they reunite for the 'Tell All' episode.

We spoke to Connor and it's crystal clear the fitness coach from Florida was never a fan of Lincoln (they had a spat early in the season) and especially now that Lincoln's dark past has surfaced.

As we reported ... Lincoln was charged with indecent assault and battery a week before the premiere, after allegedly groping a woman's breasts and grinding up on her aboard a ship.

Connor says hearing about Lincoln's dirty laundry rubbed him the wrong way. Check it out ... Connor says Lincoln's gonna get his ass handed to him if he decides to show up to the 'Tell All' episode, which hasn't filmed yet.

Oscar De La Hoya I Paid GGG Millions To Save Canelo Rematch

6/19/2018 12:10 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Oscar De La Hoya says he was so serious about saving the GGG vs. Canelo rematch, he shelled out millions of dollars of his own money to get the deal done. 

Remember, Oscar -- Canelo's promoter -- previously said Gennady Golovkin wanted a 50/50 revenue split with Canelo or he would NOT accept the fight. 

Oscar came on the "TMZ Sports" TV show and we asked what it finally took to get the deal done -- and the Golden Boy told us it came down to writing a big, fat check. 

"I actually came out with my own money to bridge the gap and make this fight happen," Oscar says. 

"GGG wanted a bigger piece of the pie. It was a matter of a few million dollars. I couldn't get it from Canelo's side because he was gonna stick to his guns ... so I had to come up with the difference."

Good thing he's rich.

Chris Pratt Looks Smitten With Katherine Schwarzenegger!!

6/18/2018 2:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Pratt is apparently a hopeless romantic, who really knows how to make a girl laugh -- just ask Katherine Schwarzenegger!!

Chris was spotted on a picnic date Sunday with Arnold and Maria's 28-year-old daughter. The duo's outing went down up in Santa Barbara, and Chris was a total gentleman -- picking up Katherine at her place and driving her up the coast.

We've seen Chris get flirty before, but this is the first time we've seen him on a full-fledged date since he filed for divorce from Anna Faris back in December.

While Katherine clearly has a Hollywood pedigree, she's not IN the biz. She's an interior designer and lifestyle blogger.

Whatever their conversation was during the date ... they both look impressed and happy.

EXCLUSIVE

6:00 PM PT -- The Broward Co. Sheriff's Dept. tweeted it's offering a reward up to $3,000 for anyone who might have a tip that leads to an arrest in the XXX shooting. 

4:07 PM PT -- The Sheriff's Dept. just released a statement saying XXX was approached by two armed suspects as he left the dealership. They say at least one of the suspects fired their gun, striking XXX. Cops say they believe the incident was a possible robbery.

2:40 PM PT -- Broward Co. Sheriff's Dept. says XXXTentacion has been pronounced dead.

According to the dispatch call the suspects were described as 2 black males wearing hoodies, and the shooter was wearing a red mask.

The car has been confirmed as a black Dodge Journey, with dark tint and black wheels.

2:14 PM PT -- Witnesses told cops a Louis Vuitton bag was taken from XXX's vehicle.

1:57 PM PT -- Additional dispatch audio has revealed XXX was transported as a "Level 1" trauma patient ... dispatchers described him as comatose.

1:48 PM PT -- According to dispatch audio -- the incident was a possible drive-by -- dispatchers named a black Dodge Journey as the possible getaway.

1:35 PM PT -- The Broward Co. Fire Dept. tells us XXX has been rushed to a hospital. Witnesses say they heard multiple shots fired. His condition is unknown at this point.

XXXTentacion was shot Monday -- TMZ has learned -- and an eyewitness tells us he appeared lifeless with no pulse.

The 20-year-old rapper was shopping for motorcycles in South Florida and, as he was leaving the motorcycle dealer, a gunman ran up to his vehicle and shot him.

XXX was in his share of feuds ... but, as far as we know, there were no ominous fights between him and anyone else.

He's had serious legal trouble ... he's awaiting trial for domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend. He's facing more than a dozen felony charges. Prosecutors accused him of witness tampering.  

XXX was on house arrest, but the judge recently let him out so he could tour.

XXX was well respected by other artists for his musical talent. Shortly after news of his death, Kanye West reacted.

He'd had real success in his brief career -- his last album debuted at #1.

Last year he got jumped by a bunch of guys in L.A., and initially thought Migos was responsible. He later apologized to them, but he told us the incident did not shake him enough to increase his security detail.

'Siesta Key' Pauly Paul Busted for Weed

6/18/2018 3:19 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A recurring cast member from MTV's "Siesta Key" got popped for having pot ... TMZ has learned.

Paul Apostolides, better known as Pauly Paul on the show, was arrested Wednesday in Sarasota, FL -- not far from where the show is filmed.

Paul, who is an aspiring rapper, had failed to show up in court for a drinking in public charge, so a cop was conducting surveillance.

According to the police report, when the officer pulled over Paul, he smelled weed and Paul confessed to having a couple bags on him. The weed weighed in at 27.6 grams, but in Florida anything over 20 grams is considered a felony. 

Paul also had a suspended licence and expired vehicle tags.

He was released on $1,500 bond.

Suge Knight Can't Leave Jail for Mom's Funeral

6/18/2018 11:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight's chances of getting out of jail to attend his mother's funeral have dwindled down to about zero ... because rules are rules.

We spoke to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department who tells us Suge can't get his hands on a "get out of jail free" card to attend events ... even if that event happens to be his own mother's funeral. As we reported, Maxine Chatman died Sunday. 

The reason's simple ... Suge's an inmate who falls under a category that makes him ineligible to attend funerals -- he's a homicide suspect. Suge's in jail awaiting trial for murder.

That being said, Suge could file a petition with the court, but we're told the likelihood of a court going against the Sheriff's Department is slim.

Meek Mill New Face-Off with Judge for Freedom

6/18/2018 9:46 AM PDT

1:00 PM PT -- Meek and his attorneys spoke outside the courthouse. Meek said he had low expectations going into the hearing, and Judge Brinkley didn't disappoint.

His attorney, Joe Tacopina was less subtle ... describing what went down in court as "an asylum."

12:40 PM PT -- The hearing is over, and Judge Brinkley did not make a ruling yet on Meek getting a new trial. Multiple reports describe the hearing as contentious.

Meek Mill marched into court Monday, ready to continue fighting for a new trial -- which could mean he goes free -- but that's IF his legal team can change Judge Genece Brinkley's mind. 

Before he went into court for the hearing, Meek addressed a crowd of supporters rallying outside the Pennsylvania courthouse. The rapper thanked them for sticking with him, and allowing him to spend Father's Day with his son, and vowed to continue fighting for wrongly convicted inmates.

Of course, he's got his own battle to fight right now. Judge Brinkley's expected to hear evidence before deciding if Meek should get a new trial -- due to his arresting officer being at the center of a police corruption scandal.

Up to this point, she's dug in her heels and refused ... but we'll see if the state Supreme Court's decision to release Meek on bail affects her ruling this time around.

EXCLUSIVE

9:34 AM PT -- A source close to Heather tells us the 56-year-old was agitated during the day, so her parents went over to her home. We're told that's when Locklear got violent, choking her mother and hitting her father. Her mother called the police.

Heather Locklear was taken to a hospital for a psych evaluation after a family member claimed the actress was threatening to kill herself ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us a family member called 911 Sunday afternoon to report they were concerned for Heather. We're told both the Ventura County Fire and Sheriff's Departments responded to Locklear's home.

According to the dispatch audio, the caller claimed Heather was acting erratically and threatening to hurt herself ... the caller said Heather was trying to find a gun to shoot herself.

Locklear was then transported to a hospital -- we're told the incident was only medical, nothing criminal.

TMZ broke the story ... Heather was arrested back in February for felony domestic violence against her boyfriend. During the arrest, Locklear allegedly threatened to shoot officers if they ever returned to her home.
