B.B. King

Daughter Claims Elder Abuse

Police Called in Dispute Over Care

5/1/2015 8:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0501-bbking-getty-01Blues legend B.B. King's daughter believes he is being abused ... and called police Thursday to settle a dispute over whether he needed to be hospitalized. 

TMZ has learned there's a huge battle over B.B.'s care -- between his daughter Patty King and his longtime manager Laverne Toney. Patty, who lives with her father in Las Vegas ... tells us she wanted to take him to the hospital because his urine was orange and he wasn't eating. 

She claims Toney -- who has power of attorney over B.B. -- refused, so Patty called police. Responding officers called in paramedics, who agreed B.B. needed to be checked out by doctors.

89-year-old King was treated at the hospital -- and Patty says he suffered a minor heart attack. She also says this photo was taken during his brief stay, and she hopes the image will convince authorities something needs to be done to protect him.

Patty and her boyfriend filed a police report last November ... claiming elder abuse, and burglary. They accused Toney and her assistant of fleecing $20-$30 million from B.B., withholding his medications while on tour -- and jacking several Rolexes and a ring valued at $250k. 

Police are investigating, but no charges have been filed yet.

We've reached out to Toney for comment, but so far no word back. Patty says she's meeting with her attorney to discuss wrestling power of attorney away from Toney.

Wife Claims Rosie's Using Kid As a Pawn

5/1/2015 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rosie O'Donnell's estranged wife Michelle Rounds wants to make 2 things clear ... she says she's not the one who told TMZ about Rosie allegedly regularly indulging in wine and weed, and the second thing is that it's all going to come out in court.

Rounds -- who's gunning for full custody of 2-year-old Dakota -- was leaving a drug store in L.A. Thursday night when a photog asked her about the bitter divorce.  She says she used to be intimidated by Rosie, but now she's ready for a David vs. Goliath fight.

She's also indignant about Rosie posting a pic of Dakota, asking for a vote.

'Stand By Me' Singer Dies

5/1/2015 7:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0501-ben-e-king-getty-01Soul singer Ben E. King -- most famous for his classic, "Stand By Me" -- died on Thursday ... according to his publicist.

King reportedly died at his home in New Jersey after suffering a heart ailment. He was 76 years old.

King's mega hit song made it to Billboard's top five in 1961 -- but "Stand By Me" returned to the charts in the '80s. It was also covered several times by other artists ... including John Lennon ... and made the charts 9 times.

He started his career with the Drifters in the '50s and had hits like "Save the Last Dance for Me" and "There Goes My Baby."

Ben E.'s passing comes just 2 weeks after the death of another soul legend -- Percy Sledge, who sang "When a Man Loves a Woman."

EXCLUSIVE

Barbra Stresand Dog Bit Flight AttendantBarbra Streisand's female dog just got herself into serious trouble at 36,000 feet -- attacking a flight attendant aboard a billionaire's fancy private jet ... and it was so bad, the victim needed stitches. 

The perp is a bitch named Sammie -- Barbra's 12-year-old Coton de Tulear ... who accompanied Streisand on Tuesday during a flight from NYC to DC on a PJ owned by billionaire investor Ron Perelman.  

Our sources tell us ... a female flight attendant noticed the dog and went over to pet her, but Sammie snapped, biting the woman's hand ... puncturing the skin and opening a wound that required stitches. 

We're told Barbra IMMEDIATELY apologized to both Ron and the flight attendant -- but everyone forgave her and the injured woman is expected to make a full recovery.

Hilary Duff

I've Got Cameras

... On All My Tinder Dates

5/1/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0430_hilary-duff-tinder-compositeHilary Duff is the next 'Bachelorette' ... of Tinder -- she's shooting footage of all her dates setup through the app ... and there's a chance it could turn into a reality show. 

Hilary recently copped to right swiping a bunch of guys on Tinder -- 9 at last count -- and even went on a first date this week with one of them. Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... cameras were rolling during the date at a bowling alley.

We're told Hilary plans to shoot more footage as she dives into the dating world ... and hopes to use it to develop a reality show -- that would focus on her life as a new divorcée. Think 'Stella' getting her groove back ... but whiter.

Hilary's rep had no comment about a potential reality show.

Our sources say Hil had a 2nd date Wednesday night -- hitting up a pizza place in the valley, and once again recording the festivities. But after dinner she and the guy grabbed a drink at a bar ... sans camera. Girl needs room to work it.

Bristol Palin

Baltimore Riots

Are Messing With My House Sale!

5/1/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bristol Palin HouseBristol Palin's house sale would be a done deal if not for the riots in Baltimore. Wait, what?

So get this ... Palin put her 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 3,200 sq ft. Alaskan home on the market last month and it sold in three days at the asking price of $549,000. Needless to say, Bristol was ecstatic. 

Fast forward to this week when the final sale docs were supposed to be delivered ... and they've been delayed. What caused the delay? Yup, the riots.

Bristol's realtor says an alert from FedEx concerning the delivery came, saying, "As a result of local restrictions in the Baltimore, Maryland metro area, unavoidable service delays are anticipated."

Slight delay ... of no consequence. Relatively speaking.

Exclusive Details

Lil B Money Stolen Hotem RoomRapper Lil B is furious $10,000 went missing from his hotel room -- and he's pointing the finger at the hotel staff ... after management gave him the boot for hotboxing the place.

Lil B tells TMZ he was staying at the Oakland Airport's Red Lion on Tuesday when the hotel kicked him out because guests were complaining about marijuana smoke coming out of his room.

The rapper claims hotel management told him security had entered his room while he was gone ... found a small bag of pot, and then asked him to leave.

When Lil B went back to his room to collect his things, he says he noticed $10,000 cash was missing. He went to the front desk to file a theft report, but claims the employee ignored him. He recorded that awkward encounter and posted it online. He also blasted the hotel staff on Twitter.

Since the hotel wasn't helping ... B says he went to Oakland PD to file a report. Cops tell us they are "still in the process of verifying if this incident occurred."

We reached out to the Red Lion Hotel for comment ... so far, no word back.
