DJ Whoo Kid Lights Out, No License ... Arrested in NYC

4/28/2016 12:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

428-djwhookid-tmzDJ Whoo Kid got pulled over by cops for driving in the dark ... without his headlights, and things quickly went downhill from there 'cause he ended up getting arrested.

Whoo Kid was driving his Escalade in downtown Manhattan, around 1:30 AM Tuesday, when cops noticed his headlights were off. They also discovered his driver's license had been revoked, and there was a warrant for his arrest -- so, off to jail he went.

The Shade 45 and G-Unit DJ had a similar run-in with cops in 2014, but failed to show up for court ... hence the warrant.

Cops say he paid a fine and was released later on Tuesday.

Whoo Kid tells us he didn't realize there was a warrant out for his failure to appear in the 2014 case, since he paid the ticket. He has a June court date for this latest arrest.

Charlie Sheen Ex-Wives Powwow for More Child Support Kids at Risk

4/28/2016 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428_brooke_charlie_denise_tmzDenise Richards and Brooke Mueller are meeting right now with their business managers and a psychologist for one of the twins to make a case for more child support, because they say the children are at serious risk.

As we reported, Charlie had his monthly support reduced from $55k he paid to both Brooke and Denise. Charlie claimed he could no longer afford that amount, and the judge reduced the support payments to $10k each.

Sources connected with Brooke and Denise tell us, they cannot afford to cover basic bills. We're told one child is receiving significant psychological help and there are other needs as well among the 4 kids.

We're told insurance is not covering even basic bills, and neither Denise nor Brooke can cut it.

Denise, Brooke, the business manager and psychiatrist, Charles Sophy, who has treated the children in the past, are meeting to formulate a game plan so they can go back to court.

Usher Naked Selfie ... Just The Tip Of The Iceberg

4/28/2016 12:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0428-usher-nude-shower-snapchat-05Usher just broke the cardinal rule of taking a naked selfie by posting a tad bit more than he probably realized on Snapchat.

Ursh snapped the pic Thursday and captioned it "blowin off steam" with an emoji covering his junk. Upon closer look it was hard to ignore that the emoji failed to cover all of his man parts and the tip of his dong was left sticking out.

We had to retouch it a bit since it's technically a d*** pic, but you can use your imagination and probably Google and find the real thing.

It doesn't appear he did it on purpose, but if he did, he's sending the message that size matters.

'American Idol' Parent Company Goes Bankrupt Show Became a Money Pit

4/28/2016 11:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0428_american_idol_so_you_think_you_can_dance_gettyThe media giant behind "American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance" has filed for bankruptcy, and part of the problem is ... 'Idol' was hemorrhaging money in its final seasons. 

Core Media Group filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy Thursday morning saying it's several hundred million dollars in the hole, and needs to reorganize its debts. Core and all its subsidiaries say they have $73 million in assets, but more than $512 million in debt. 

One of its biggest creditors is 'Idol' creator Simon Fuller, who is owed more than $3.3 million. Several law firms and music labels, as well as the FOX Network are also owed dough.

Core Media's filing includes many of its holdings, including 19 Entertainment which owns the recording rights of 'Idol' superstars like Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson.

In the bankruptcy docs, Core says revenue started sliding after 2012 when 'Idol' ratings started declining. For instance in 2014, earnings dropped $15 million from the previous year.

Charlie Sheen Scores Legal Victory Ex-Fiancee Not in Danger

4/28/2016 10:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-charlie-sheen-brett-rossi-TMZ-02Charlie Sheen does not pose an imminent threat to ex-fiancee Brett Rossi ... so says a Los Angeles Superior Court judge.

Rossi claimed in legal docs her life was in danger, claiming audio existed of Charlie threatening to have her killed.  

At the time Rossi filed, a judge issued an immediate restraining order based only on her claims, but after a hearing Thursday a judge threw out the order, saying there was no immediate threat.

One thing that didn't help Rossi's case ... she was a no-show. Sheen's lawyer, Marty Singer, was incredulous, because he learned she was in Atlanta for a special appearance at the Pink Pony strip club, touting her as a "world famous adult film star" and "2012 pet of the month."

A judge set a hearing for May 18, to decide if a permanent restraining order was appropriate.

Lil Wayne No 'Respek' ... Chillin' with Birdman Foes!

4/28/2016 9:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

428-lil-wayne-instagramLil Wayne put ZERO 'Respek' on Birdman's name by hanging out with Rick Ross and Trick Daddy -- 2 of the guys who prompted Birdman's infamous rant.

Weezy and co. posed together in Miami right before Beyonce took the stage to kick off her tour. We don't know if the middle finger was intended for Cash Money's honcho, but he's gotta be taking it that way after his 'Breakfast Club' blowup over a lack of respek.

Remember, Charlamagne Tha God reminded Birdman that Ricky Rozay and Trick Daddy were also dissing him ... before he stormed out of the studio.

Wayne and Birdman seemed to be patching things up personally -- although they're still at war, legally -- but this pic won't help.  

Prince Search Warrant Served on Singer's House

4/28/2016 9:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

42716-prince-getty-02Authorities have obtained a search warrant for Prince's house, and in the docs there's an ominous warning ... if the justification for the warrant gets out it could cause others to destroy evidence.

The warrant was issued Thursday in Carver County, Minnesota, allowing cops to search the home in Paisley Park Studios, where the singer lived and died. Our sources say authorities want to see if there's evidence of drugs, correspondence, prescriptions and medical information that could help in the death investigation.

The sheriff's office says in the request for a warrant ... they want to keep the information in the warrant confidential because "premature disclosure of the details provided in the search warrant and its accompanying documents may compromise this law enforcement investigation by causing the search or related searches to be unsuccessful."

Translation ... we know authorities are interested in drugs that were prescribed by doctors and filled by pharmacies, and they don't want evidence tampering.

TMZ broke the story ... our Prince sources say it was known among close friends and family ... he had a Percocet addiction for years.

The judge ordered that the sensitive documents be sealed for 6 months or until the commencement of any criminal case.

Sheila E. I Want to Protect Prince's Legacy NO Interest in His Money

4/28/2016 9:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

428-prince-sheila-tyka-02Sheila E. is doing everything she can to make sure no one exploits Prince's music or his money ... but she's NOT warring with his family over her friend's estate.

Sheila has deep concerns that vultures are looking for opportunities to profit off Prince's death -- so she's offered her support to his family and Paisley Park reps ... according to Sheila's rep.

The rep says there's no truth to reports Sheila is fighting with Tyka, Prince's sister, over the estate. She adds, Sheila "has received no compensation nor will accept compensation" ... and she's already turned down multiple offers to get paid for "tribute" concerts.

Additionally, Sheila thinks all memorial shows should be authorized by the estate and all revenues should go to Prince's favorite charities. 

Katt Williams A Salt & Battery Bust at Restaurant

4/28/2016 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-katt-williams-mug-shot-01

Normally we'd take a Katt Williams arrest with a grain of salt, but this one was over multiple grains of salt ... which the comedian allegedly threw at a restaurant manager. 

Katt got arrested late Wednesday night at Atlanta seafood restaurant Spondivits after he got into it with the staff ... according to cops.

We're told Katt's party walked into the restaurant and decided to seat themselves instead of waiting for a host. Katt soon followed and started arguing with the manager over the seating situation.

Katt allegedly settled matters by grabbing a salt shaker, chucking it at the manager and smashing him in the face. Cops say his lip was bleeding, and Katt had fled when they arrived.

Officers found Williams a little later and arrested him for battery (no salt) ... he posted bond and was released around 12:30 AM.
