Keyshia Cole just dodged a bullet ... she will NOT be prosecuted for attacking a woman inside Birdman's L.A. condo ... but she may still get an anger check.
Sources in the L.A. City Attorney's Office tell TMZ ... they will not prosecute Cole after she went to Birdman's crib in the middle of the night last month, allegedly spotting a woman inside and going nuts on her.
Prosecutors have told Cole that instead of going to trial, they want her to appear at an informal office hearing, where someone from the City Attorney's Office will listen to her and the victim and then give the singer a stern warning not to do it again ... or else.
The hearing officer can require Cole to go to anger management courses ... something they've done in similar cases before.
It beats jail.

Upset Honey Boo Boo
Exposed to Child Molester
10/27/2014 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sugar Bear was polite but clear ... he's not happy that Mama June allowed a convicted child molester to get his hands on his daughter.
TMZ posted the pic of June on a staircase with Honey Boo Boo and Mark McDaniel -- the man who molested one of her other children. McDaniel has his hands on Honey Boo Boo's back.
Sugar Bear was measured, but made it clear it was not cool. He's also upset the show was cancelled.
AMA Producers DID Want the Pope
And I Got Proof!
10/27/2014 2:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sinead O'Connor says she's got proof AMA producers wanted her to stand alongside Pope Francis during their upcoming show ... and claims anyone saying otherwise is full of crap!
We broke the story ... an American Music Awards source told us Sinead's recent rant against them was ridiculous -- because they never discussed a Pope appearance. But O'Connor says that's BS.
TMZ obtained emails between Sinead's management team and her record label ... clearly referring to a discussion they had with AMA staff about appearing alongside the Pope.
Sinead's manager claims when he asked who producers were trying to snag for the show ... the record label rep said, "Take a deep breath ... Pope Francis. No joke."
It appears Sinead's position is that the AMAs wanted her essentially for a stunt ... to bring her and the Pope together on the stage, given the backdrop of beef the singer had with the Pontiff.
O’Connor tells TMZ that she believes show producers are just trying to damage her career by labeling her a liar. She feels used.

'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo'
That's a Wrap!

With "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" no more, the production crew showed up at the home of Mama June and took down the lights.

And now they've pulled the plug literally.
Tells The Judge:
My Anger's All Gone
10/27/2014 12:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's anger problems are under control ... so says a judge who just cut him a big break in his criminal case for physically attacking his brother.
Sorrentino showed up in a New Jersey courtroom Monday with proof he completed a 12-week anger management program -- this for the tanning salon attack. In return, the judge allowed Sitch to cop a plea to a petty offense -- disorderly conduct. After paying a $506 fine, he walked out a free man.
Well, not exactly free. He's being prosecuted for tax fraud ... a felony.

Mama June's New Man
His Past is Irrelevant
10/27/2014 9:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mama June's new man Mark McDaniel may be a child molester, but that doesn't mean he's a bad guy ... at least according to his daughter-in-law.
Peaches McDaniel tried defending her father-in-law on Facebook ... saying, "if you are going to judge someone by their past, look at your own first. Michaels dad is an amazing man, as well amazing father."
She adds, "Peoples past are completely irrelevant to the present."
Tell that to the State of Georgia ... where McDaniel is now registered as a sex offender after serving 10 years in prison for forcing one of Mama June's daughters to have oral sex with him.
As we previously reported ... June and her man visited Peaches after she gave birth last month ... which is when McDaniel was pictured with his hands on Honey Boo Boo's back.
Coy About Banging New Guy
10/27/2014 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kris Jenner says she is NOT banging the guy she took to Kim Kardashian's birthday party ... but who is she kidding?
The picture is the latest linking Kris and Corey Gamble -- one of Justin Bieber's road managers -- whom she took to Vegas for Kim's 34th over the weekend.
Our Kardashian sources are sketchy on the subject of their relationship ... they say it's "not serious." No one says that about a non-existent relationship, so clearly there is one.
One source says, "I wouldn't say they're dating yet." Yet.
Here's the other thing ... you don't bring random friends on a private jet to your daughter's birthday.
Your move Kourtney.

Sugar Bear Always Took Back Seat
To Child Molester
10/27/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Child molester Mark McDaniel was the Camilla Parker-Bowles in the relationship between Mama June and Sugar Bear ... and even though he was behind bars almost the entire time June was with Sugar Bear, it destroyed their relationship.
Multiple family sources tell TMZ ... June kept a box of photos of her and McDaniel in the house ... something Sugar Bear knew about and protested, to no avail. She would NOT get rid of them.
We're told McDaniel -- who molested June's then 8-year-old daughter Anna -- was the subject of frequent arguments between June and Sugar Bear. He felt she was still emotionally in a relationship with McDaniel ... even though he had been locked up for years.
Our sources say June was seeing McDaniel while she was still with Sugar Bear -- he got out of prison in March. The family now believes it was actually June who was cheating, not Sugar Bear, and she used the online dating story to get out of a relationship she had already rejected.
Sugar Bear is Honey Boo Boo's dad, and we're guessing he's not happy about the pic of McDaniel touching her ... a pic taken Sept. 9.
Cryin' Over Uber Long Wait
Or Uber Argument

Two Choices: 1) Audrina Patridge got in a blow-out fight after a Halloween party Saturday night ... or 2) she dissolved into tears because her contacts were hurting her and her Uber didn't show.
Audrina and BF Corey Bohan had just left Hyde when she hit the ground and started bawling. Audrina tells us there was no fight -- she was just pissed because it was clear they'd have to wait forever for the Uber and her contacts were uber-uncomfortable.
Well ... we're not buyin' what she's selling. Take a look at the video. Then you decide.
