Hope Solo has just been benched by Team USA soccer for SIX MONTHS -- for trashing Team Sweden as a "bunch of cowards" after they beat the U.S. in an Olympic match earlier this month.
This got crazy FAST.
Prince Tour Paisley Park Courtesy of Elvis Presley
8/24/2016 3:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Prince's home is now the domain of the King -- as in Elvis Presley's people running tours at Paisley Park.
The bank that manages Prince's estate -- Bremer Trust -- just announced the deal that puts the people who run Graceland in charge of public tours, which are set to begin in October.
Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, is reportedly on board with the Elvis plan, but sources close to the heirs tell TMZ not everyone in the family agrees.
We're told the dissenting family members objected, in part, because Graceland Holdings has previously had financial problems. As it stands, team Elvis would get 50% of revenue generated by Paisley Park tours.
We're told Bremer's currently negotiating with the family in hopes of getting everyone on board, but that's more for PR purposes. Fact is, the tours are going to happen ... but it seems the bank just wants to make sure Prince family members don't publicly bad mouth the deal.
You gotta see the bottom half of this photo ... damn, whatever she's doing, it's WORKING.
Slash Cuts Bev Hills Pad by $1.5 Mil
8/24/2016 2:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Slash is hoping a fresh coat of paint and a substantially lower asking price will finally attract a buyer for his Beverly Hills mansion.
The GNR guitarist just relisted his Mulholland Estates home for $9.5 million ... about $1.5 million off the original listing for the 7 bedroom, 9 bath home. Slash put it on the market more than a year ago, after he and his wife of 13 years, Perla, filed for divorce.
The 11k sq. foot home has been stripped of most of its rock 'n' roll qualities, but a stripper pole remains ... key selling point, no doubt. Looks like the backyard skate ramp's also been replaced by a beach volleyball court.
Slash and Perla bought the mansion in 2009 for $7.3 million.
She definitely went there in a frank conversation with Ty Dolla Sign about sex, side pieces and the TMI reason she has a hard time figuring out her "number."
Kim Richards Dodges Jail Bullet
8/24/2016 1:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Richards narrowly avoided jail after blowing off her community service and AA meetings in her shoplifting case.
Kim's lawyers were in court Wednesday for a probation violation hearing ... this after she missed the deadline for completing 30 days of community service and 52 AA sessions.
Her lawyers presented proof that Kim belatedly did most of her community service and is now up to date on AA meetings, so the judge cut her a break.
Kim stays on probation and everything must be completed by the next hearing in November.
Kim was convicted of shoplifting for stealing $600 worth of stuff from Target.

Things seemed alright a couple weeks ago when they hung out at her Vegas show ... where she gave ex Marc Anthony a shout-out.
People first reported the breakup.
Things just aren't looking great for ol' Bee Dance Krumpin' Cappy Smart, huh?

8/24/2016 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sources close to Blac Chyna tell us she actually enjoyed the pics of Kylie and King at a mini-golf course.
We're told Chyna's good with the entire Kardashian brood ... a brand she's personally growing -- she's weeks away from giving birth.
She's also not stupid and knows Kylie will become her sister-in-law and if she starts picking fights with her, Kris will side with her daughter, which will cause Chyna financial and other problems.
The Kardashians are also on board ... they've invited Chyna to family events ... most recently the latest DASH store opening and Kris' mom's birthday.
Chyna knows which battles not to pick.
Jenner had her fans FREAKING OUT over her enhanced chest on Thursday ... wait until you see the pic, has she been MIA from social media because she got a boob job?!

Faith Evans Judge OKs Bad Boy Reunion Single Mamas Gotta Eat!!!
8/24/2016 11:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Faith Evans just scored one for single moms everywhere -- a judge shot down a promoter's request to block her from performing at the Bad Boy Family Reunion concert in Atlanta.
The judge ultimately sided with Faith cause she's a single mom of 3 who makes a living performing ... and it wouldn't be fair to stop her from performing with Diddy on Sept. 8 in Atlanta. On the other hand, Jeremy Hill -- the promoter who sued her -- had already replaced her for his concert ... according to legal docs.
TMZ broke the story ... Hill sued Faith when she bailed on his Sept. 10 concert at Wolf Creek Amphitheater. He's seeking damages in excess of $100k.
It's interesting ... according to the docs, the judge acknowledged Faith breached her contract with Hill, whose goodwill and credibility was on the line. The judge also noted that since replacing Faith -- with the R&B band Next -- the show hasn't been selling.
Plus ... since Hill announced Faith was no longer performing at his concert, he said he's received around 200 requests for refunds.
Still ... the judge felt Faith had more to lose.
Our EYES. They're doing something FUNNY.
Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa Sued Your Concert Cracked My Spine
8/24/2016 9:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
You'll recall ... at least 40 people were hurt -- several had to be hospitalized -- when the crowd barrier gave out without warning. One of the victims says he suffered a fractured spine.
According to the suit, Snoop and Wiz yelled, "Everybody in the mother******* grass bring your ass down here" ... right before the collapse. The plaintiffs say that call to action caused the stampede which lead to the collapse.
Three of the plaintiffs were employees at the venue, BB&T Pavilion. Live Nation, which owns the venue, is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit. They say the company had made shoddy repairs on the railing in the last year.
After the collapse, people fell roughly 10 feet onto the concrete below, and the show ended abruptly.

Diddy Cheers for Drake Beef Dead & Buried
8/24/2016 10:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Diddy had one of the best seats in the house at Drake and Future's Summer 16 stop in Greensboro, NC. He didn't get up onstage, but just being in the audience is a huge step.
Drizzy and Diddy famously threw down in 2014 outside LIV nightclub in Miami -- the climax of their beef over the track, "0 to 100/ The Catch Up." As we reported, they eventually settled the matter man-to-man ... over the phone.
Drake's been playing the track in his sets, so Diddy was probably treated to the live version.
