8/22/2016 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
According to the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner's Office, the mastermind behind the Backstreet Boys and 'NSYNC ... died at a Miami hospital where he was scheduled to have heart surgery.
We're told 62-year-old Pearlman had been transferred from his prison cell to have the surgery, but as we reported ... he died Friday -- before the procedure. He had a history of cardiac issues.
The official cause of death is listed as natural causes.
Prince No Conrad Murray in His Death
8/22/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Prince's deadly dose of the powerful painkiller Fentanyl was NOT prescribed by a doctor, which means it's a near impossibility anyone will ever be charged with his murder.
Law enforcement sources confirm investigators have not turned up a prescription for the Fentanyl. The Fentanyl pills found at Paisley Park were in a bottle labeled hydrocodone -- and it's now believed they were illegally obtained.
Our sources tell us whoever gave Prince the drug would face a 3rd degree murder charge under Minnesota law. However, without a prescription, we're told Prince's doctors would be in the clear ... so there'll be no Conrad Murray-esque trial.
Investigators would have to track down the source of the illicit Fentanyl -- it's reportedly an epidemic problem in Minnesota -- for anyone to stand trial for murder.
It's still possible a doctor could get nailed for over-prescribing other opioids. Remember, we broke the story ... Prince nearly OD'd on Percocet 6 days before his death at Paisley Park.
Chris Brown Off the Hook for ATV Joyride
8/22/2016 8:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown just scored a W in his legal battle with his pissed off neighbors -- who, for some reason, backed down and now the LAPD's dropped its disturbing the peace investigation.
Law enforcement sources tells us Chris won't face any charges for allegedly disturbing the peace back in May ... when he was accused of terrorizing the streets of his neighborhood on an ATV.
You'll recall ... there was even video of a joyride taken by one of his neighbors. We're told the one who ended up calling cops didn't want to cooperate, so LAPD decided to close the case.
You gotta wonder why the neighbors suddenly went soft. One of 'em was on "TMZ Live," and seemed determined to go the distance with Brown. Hmm ...

Eddie got $635k for the 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath townhouse in Toluca Lake, CA. He'd originally listed it for $100k more than that back in February -- but we're guessing LeAnn Rimes is just thrilled to unload the tie to his ex.
Eddie and Brandi shared the pad in happier times ... aka before the bitter divorce.
The pad is 1,800 square feet with a rooftop patio overlooking the Hollywood Hills. Alex Galuz of Crescent Realty Corp closed the deal for Eddie.

8/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Dana White tells TMZ Sports he wants Conor to defend his title against interim champ Jose Aldo. Dana says, "The war was fun and super successful but I'm movin' on." Here's the rub -- Conor beefed up for his fight against the much larger Diaz. Conor normally fights at 145 and swelled to 168 to fight Diaz.
Dana says Conor has two options -- either fight Aldo or surrender his title to him -- or cut weight to 155 and fight Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight title.
Dana says under any scenario, he's closing the books on McGregor vs. Diaz.

Whitney Cummings to Neighbor You Killed My Trees But You Can't Stump the Cops
8/22/2016 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Whitney Cummings is livid at a neighbor who she claims went all Paul Bunyan in her backyard, and now cops are investigating.
We're told Whitney walked in her backyard this week and was horrified to see a tree massacre, courtesy of her neighbor's gardener.
Seems the neighbor was frustrated that Whitney's wall of bark was blocking his view, and she says he ordered the landscaper to do a hatchet job on her property ... cutting the trees down to stumps.
Whitney called the cops, who came out and took a felony vandalism report ... she claims the damages total around $36k.
Sources tells us the neighbor offered to pay Whitney something, but it's unclear how much.
We spoke with the neighbor, who had no comment. We also reached out to Whitney, but so far no word back.
She's coming out with ALL the things, no holds barred, huh?!
'Rica Famosa Latina' Brawl Real Blood and Broken Glass ... Take THAT 'Housewives'
8/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Two of the 'Rica Famosa Latina' stars turned a scripted fight into a very real, very gangsta showdown that landed one of 'em in the hospital with a bloodied face.
Cast members Sandra and Victoria were taping a scene at a fashion event in Culver City when the brawl started. According to the police report, producers had planned (yes, that's how reality shows really work) to shoot the women arguing over a dress.
We're told Victoria was supposed to throw a glass of wine on a mannequin, and then Sandra would throw a glass of wine back at Victoria.
But Sandra went off script, according to cops ... attacking Victoria by smashing the wine glass over her head and then cutting her with the jagged, broken end. Victoria was rushed to a hospital with cuts on her head and chest.
Despite the injuries, law enforcement sources tell us neither women will be charged. They're chalking it up to mutual combat for a TV show. BTW ... way better combat than the 'Real Housewives' typically offer.
¡Esto es showbiz, chica!

Mischa Barton I Chose Play Over Work And It Cost Me $200k
8/22/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mischa Barton's gotta fork over a ton of cash to the screenwriter she left high and dry by blowing off his movie production to go parading all over Europe.
In legal docs obtained by TMZ ... a judge ordered Mischa to pay $200k, plus interest, to screenplay writer Daniel Lief for skipping town just as shooting was set to start for his movie, "Promoted." Mischa had scored the lead role.
As we reported ... producers sued Mischa when they saw pics of her all over social media ... hangin' in Europe with a dude, instead of getting her ass to work. Daniel said the production delay -- he had to recast the lead -- cost more than $300k.
We reached out to Mischa, but no word back yet.
