Justin Bieber Lord of the Mighty Mississippi For a Night, Anyway
6/24/2016 9:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Even when Justin Bieber holes up in a small rural town in Illinois ... he finds a way to live like a king.
JB got sidelined in Hamilton, IL Thursday night when his tour bus needed repairs. Hamilton sits on the Mississippi with a population of about 2,800 -- but Bieber still managed to catch some Zs in a $10k per night Airbnb rental.
Hard to believe the riverfront mansion only has 4 bedrooms, but inside, it's extremely popstar-friendly with arcade games, a gym and even an old school jukebox.
Outside? An infinity pool over the river with a view! Of Iowa.
We're told police had to patrol the road for people trying to get a glimpse of Justin. It's as if he was the biggest thing in town.
She hasn't always looked like THIS. In a rare, on-camera interview, the Human Barbie talks about her past, plastic surgery and so much more!

Sinead O'Connor I'm Alive! Cops Lied About Suicide Threat
6/24/2016 8:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sinead O'Connor is alive and seemingly well after Chicago police responded to a call she was threatening to jump off a bridge.
Chicago PD tried to track down O'Connor Thursday evening when O'Connor's family contacted Irish police, saying she threatened suicide.
But O'Connor is claiming cops made it all up and she never threatened to jump, saying, "some stupid bitch at Swords Garda station [Irish police] decided she'd like to throw a bit of false and malicious gossip."
Irish police told us they have no comment on Sinead's accusation.
O'Connor had reached out to family in May when she last threatened suicide -- but it's unclear if she did that again this week. Our family sources say they're trying to sort it out.
This is AMAZING ... we never thought we'd hear ANYTHING like this from the legendary Winona Ryder.
Anton Yelchin Death Triggers Class Action Jeep Lawsuit
6/24/2016 6:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Anton Yelchin's horrifying death is now the centerpiece of a class action lawsuit filed by Jeep owners who says they've been betrayed and suffered economic loss in the wake of the actor's death.
The suit claims Fiat Chrysler knew about the defect in the shifting device for at least 2 years but concealed the information, resulting in dozens of injuries and very possibly Yelchin's death.
The suit targets what it says is "one of the most basic safety features in every car" -- the gear shifter.
TMZ broke the story ... Yelchin died after his jeep rolled backwards, pinning him against his security gate. His 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee had an e-shift, and there have been chronic problems with drivers unwittingly leaving the car in neutral but thinking it's in park.
The suit claims a variety of damages, including the loss in value of the vehicle as a result of the publicity ... clearly referring to Yelchin.

Whitney Houston Estate Can't Beat the Emmys ... Court Blocks Auction!
6/24/2016 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Whitney Houston's estate and the Whitney fan who already bid $10,000 for her 1986 Emmy are both outta luck -- a federal judge has shut down an auction for the trophy.
Heritage Auctions had put the statuette up for grabs, but TMZ broke the story ... the Television Academy opposed the auction, citing its rule that all Emmys must be returned to them if the winner or winner's heirs no longer want it.
Heritage was hawking the Emmy on behalf of Whitney's estate, but the Academy sought and was granted a temporary restraining order to prevent the live auction from going down Friday.
The online auction had already begun, and as we told you ... someone put up a $10k bid. Sorry, Charlie.
Heritage says it will respect the court's decision and the Emmy will be returned to the Houston family.
