Sinead O'Connor Suicide Watch on Chicago Bridges

6/23/2016 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Cops are on the hunt for Sinead O'Connor after someone in her family told cops she's threatening to kill herself.

Chicago PD got a call from Irish authorities saying Sinead contacted her family an hour ago and said she was suicidal and planned to jump off a bridge in the Chicago area.

We're told cops actually spotted someone who looked like she fit the profile but it wasn't Sinead.

TMZ obtained scanner audio from the PD giving officers the heads up. We're told there's not an active search ... but cops were told to be on the lookout.

Sinead's been struggling with depression lately -- just last month she was reported missing and her friends and family feared suicide -- she was later found at a Chicago hotel.

Jermaine Jackson Wife Files for Divorce

6/23/2016 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0623-jermaine-jackson-halima-rashid-tmz-getty-02Jermaine Jackson's wife is filing to divorce him and predictably ... she says the trouble started the day she got busted for attacking him.

Halima Rashid filed the divorce petition on Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences, and listing November 28, 2015 as the date of separation.

If that date sounds familiar it's because TMZ broke the story ... Halima was arrested for felony corporal injury that day. During a fight on Thanksgiving weekend, Jermaine allegedly spit on her and she allegedly bit him on the leg.

Halima is seeking spousal support. They got married in 2004, but don't have any kids together ... so no child support issues. She was wife #3 for Jermaine.

Her domestic violence case was tossed because prosecutors couldn't determine who was the aggressor in the fight.

Rep. Alan Grayson Pay Attention, Paul Ryan ... We'll Show You How to Do Your Job

6/23/2016 3:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan wouldn't know how to run Congress if his job came with an instruction manual ... according to Florida Congressman Alan Grayson.

Grayson -- a Democrat participating in the sit-in for a gun control vote -- threw major shade at Ryan just after the political protest was suspended until legislators return in July.

We asked him about Ryan saying the Dems were just pulling a "publicity stunt," and that's when he went off.

Keep in mind, Grayson's constituency includes Orlando ... so his passion on the topic makes sense.

Kelly's baffled ... she says she's never met the intruder nor had any interaction with her. 

The actress says she tried to escape, but the woman attacked ... knocking Kelly to the ground, scratching her and pulling her hair. During the struggle, she managed to set off her car alarm which scared the intruder just long enough for Kelly to break away.

She says she screamed for help from her front yard, but no one -- including a neighbor she says was home -- came to her rescue. Instead, she had to drive down the road to someone else's house to call 911.

Police arrived and busted Laurence Marie Dorn for burglary, larceny, stalking, assault and battery, and interfering with emergency communication.

She's still in jail on a $60k bond.

EXCLUSIVE

Jesse Jackson is not just applauding the Democratic sit-in ... he firmly believes it's picking up where the Civil Rights Movement left off in the '60s.

The Rev was on Capitol Hill Thursday morning -- before the demonstration was suspended -- when he explained why he thinks the Dems can't back down on demanding at least a vote on gun control legislation ... no matter how much backlash they get for it.

Jackson had NO problem with the sit-in participants singing "We Shall Overcome." Some critics think they belittled the importance of Civil Rights protests -- but Jackson says, "It's the same struggle led by the same people."

Chris Brown Manager Sues ... Chris Beat Me to a Pulp

EXCLUSIVE

0623-chris-brown-TMZ-02

Chris Brown has more legal woes ... the guy he hired to rehabilitate his image after the Rihanna beating is now suing Chris for allegedly doing the same to him.

Mike G claims he was hired in 2012 not only to change Brown's image but to get him out of debt and off drugs. Mike G says he did well by Chris, who had a resurgence in popularity. 

Things allegedly turned bad last month, but Mike G claims without provocation, Brown took him in a room, brutally attacked him with repeated punches to the face and neck, which landed him in the ER.

The lawsuit claims Brown, rather than being remorseful, began mocking Mike G on social media and bragging to friends about the beating. Mike G says Brown had the audacity to tell people working on his tour, if they got out of line he'd beat them just like he beat Mike G.

Mike G says Brown's rage was drug-fueled and the suit mention concern for retaliation from Brown's "gang member friends." 

Mike G's attorney, Patty Glaser, tells TMZ, "We did everything we could to resolve this in a non-public way to avoid damage to Chris Brown. Regrettably, as outlined in our complaint, Chris Brown has proven to be his own worst enemy."

11:00 AM PT: Chris just responded to the lawsuit in an Instagram video, claiming he fired Mike G for stealing money from him. Mike G's lawyer says that's not true and they will be adding a defamation claim to the lawsuit.

Sia My Cover's Blown!!!

6/23/2016 10:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0623-main-sia-gettyFor any doubters it's Sia actually singing under that mop of hair ... a Rocky Mountain breeze has your back.

Sia was performing Wednesday night at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, Colorado when the weather refused to cooperate. The famed amphitheater is carved into the foothills of The Rockies, so the wind gets tricky.

The singer's been spotted without her wig before, but her face is always covered when she's performing, so count this as a cheap thrill for the crowd.

Led Zeppelin Wins 'Stairway' Lawsuit It's NOT a Rip-Off

6/23/2016 10:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0614-jimmy-page-robert-plant-getty-02Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page and Robert Plant didn't jack the rock classic "Stairway to Heaven" ... according to the jury in their song theft trial.

The verdict came in Thursday morning -- after less than a day of deliberation -- and the jury ruled in favor of Zeppelin.

The trustee for songwriter Randy Wolfe, from the group Spirit, had sued claiming the iconic 'Stairway' guitar riff was lifted from Spirit's song, "Taurus." The jury didn't hear that and said there was no substantial similarity.

During the trial ... Spirit bassist Mark Andes recalled the band played "Taurus" at a Denver show where Led Zeppelin opened. Zepp's attorney claimed the bands were never onstage together and never toured together.

But a 1968 concert review in the Rocky Mountain News -- found on LZ's own website -- puts the bands together at the Denver concert. It was Zeppelin's U.S. debut.

In court ... guitar and piano renditions were played by musicians from both sides. Defense experts argued the songs only share a descending chord sequence that's common -- and clearly, the jury agreed.

"If you listen very hard ... the tune will come to you at last."
