Chris Brown's Manager I Didn't Steal and ... Oops, You Forgot to Fire Me!

6/24/2016 12:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0624-chris-brown-tmzChris Brown's manager made good on his threat to add defamation to his lawsuit against Brown, and says there's no way he could have stolen the singer's cheddar.

Hours after Brown posted 2 videos saying Mike G had been fired for stealing his money, the now estranged manager filed new legal docs. In the new lawsuit, he says he's never had access to Chris' money because another business manager is solely responsible for finances.

Even though in the videos, Chris says he'd canned Mike over the cash ... we're told Mike claims he never got a termination notice until AFTER he filed his lawsuit.

We broke the story ... Mike G's also suing for assault, battery, false imprisonment and breach of contract after what he says was a bloody beatdown by Chris

Mike's Lawyer, Patty Glaser, released this statement -- "Sadly, Chris Brown is once again lashing out against those who were closest to him and is refusing to accept responsibility for his actions. Making up false claims against Mike G to deflect attention away from his continued violent behavior is shameful. We are looking forward to our day in court when Chris Brown will be held accountable.”

Iggy Azalea Making a Not So Clean Getaway

6/24/2016 10:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Iggy Azalea boarded a flight at LAX ... and for some reason she looked like someone fleeing in disguise.

Less than a week after ending her engagement to Lakers star Nick Young ... Iggy pulled a ball cap down low over her face and strolled through the airport surrounded by her team. Of course, she was peppered with questions about the breakup ... and her face proves this one stings.

As we reported ... Iggy gave back the ring (which she'd have to do by law), but took back the classic Chevy Impala she gifted to Nick and said she was moving out of their house.

Something tells us zero hearts will be growing fonder during their absence from each other.

Tony Robbins Tells Fans to Walk on Hot Coals ... Over 30 Get Burned

6/24/2016 11:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0624_tony-robbins_hot-coals_instagramtmzTony Robbins' motivational seminar went haywire in Dallas when more than 30 people who walked on hot coals had to get treated for burns.

According to reports ... 5 people were hospitalized Thursday night, while the rest were treated on-site for burns to their feet and lower legs. Tony had encouraged attendees to walk the coals in order to conquer their fears. It's a common thing at Robbins' events.

Tony's people tell TMZ ... 7,000 guests walked across the coals and only five "requested any examination beyond what was readily available on site."

At least one attendee blamed the burns on a lack of focus -- some people were reportedly taking selfies. This also happened at a 2012 event in San Jose.

0624_justin_bieber_airbnb_launchEven 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.

Tyga apparently had a change of heart and deleted the photo, but it's pretty clear ... they want people to know ... there are benefits in friendship.

Sinead O'Connor I'm Alive! Cops Lied About Suicide Threat

6/24/2016 8:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0623-sinead-oconnor-tmz-02Sinead 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.

Anton Yelchin Death Triggers Class Action Jeep Lawsuit

6/24/2016 6:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0624-anton-yelchin-jeep-fiat-chrysler-TMZ-01Anton 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
EXCLUSIVE

0624-whitney-houston-oscar-GETTY-01Whitney 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.
