Prince George Lopez Helps Family with Big Bucks

5/1/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0430-prince-lopez-getty-tmz-01Prince's family has a guardian angel ... who goes by the name George Lopez, because we've learned the comedian has fronted money to the family the singer left behind.

Turns out ... George was tight with Prince, and he learned all of the assets in the estate have been frozen until a judge determines how much the administrator can give family members for living expenses. Prince was generous with his family, giving them money and even homes during his life.

Some of the singer's siblings are now cash strapped because they've been temporarily cut off, and we've learned George has advanced them $20k to cover living and travel expenses and that figure could go up.

We're told George did it all anonymously ... not wanting any fanfare or adulation.

Good job, Lopez.

  

Wes Scantlin Busted By Bail Bondsman at Concert

5/1/2016 11:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Wes Scantlin didn't get the chance for an encore Saturday night ... he was put in cuffs immediately after walking off stage. 

The "Puddle of Mudd" front man was subdued by bail bondsmen and cops at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach, CA.

The reason for the arrest ... Scantlin skipped a court hearing in a vandalism case involving a house he allegedly trashed earlier this year.  

Apparently this is the second time he was a no show in the case, so the judge upped bail to $250k.

Making bail ... apparently not so easy.  He's still in custody.

Justin Bieber Bizarre Engagement Party for Dad

5/1/2016 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0501-justin-beiber-jeremy-beiber-engagement-weird-GETTY-01Jeremy Bieber had an artsy-fartsy party in Toronto, complete with tigers, superheros and the Biebs.

Jeremy and fiancee Chelsea Rebelo had their shindig at a massive, private Toronto estate.  The backdrop was an art show, but it felt more like a renaissance fair.

The pics are pretty cool, and of course Justin hit up the piano.

Kylie Jenner Re-Enters Tattoo Danger Zone

5/1/2016 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kylie Jenner is a little slow on the uptake, and so are the tattoo artists who let her turn the tables.

Kylie was at West 4 Tattoo in NYC Saturday night for a little ink, when she returned the favor on the tattoo artist.

As we reported, she did this once before in NYC, and the NYC Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene jumped on the case, warning the parlor not to let unlicensed people handle the tattoo gun.

Lesson not learned.  

  

Prez Obama Slays at White House Correspondents Dinner

5/1/2016 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Obama's swan song at the White House Correspondent's Dinner did not disappoint, as he skewered politicians and pop culture icons alike.

Hillary, Donald and Ted did not escape easily. The Prez was actually kinder to Kendall Jenner, who for some reason was part of the Barnum & Bailey event. 

He's 'SNL' worthy.

Hope Solo Invited to White House Correspondents Dinner Despite Obama Snub

5/1/2016 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0501-hope-solo-white-house-correspondence-dinner-GETTY-01Hope Solo was right there at the White House Correspondents dinner, yukking it up as she watched the President who dissed her last year.

You may recall, the Prez invited Hope's team, which won the World Cup in 2015, for a reception.  During the ceremony, POTUS called out Hope's teammates for recognition but passed over her.

Hope has had her problems ... among them criminal charges for allegedly beating up her half sister and nephew during a drunken rage back in 2014 ... something she denies.

On the upside, she looked good.

Nipsey Hussle Spell My Name Right Or There's No Show

5/1/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0429_nipsy_hussle_compositeNipsey Hussle has his priorities when he performs, caring way more about credit than booze.

We got hold of the rapper's rider from an Atlanta gig. Money is at the top of the list -- payment in crisp $100 bills ... we're told 250 of them. Next in line is promotion -- "All advertisements MUST use the proper spelling and correct pronunciation." 

Nipsey also won't play to an empty house ... he'll only go onstage if the venue's at 25% capacity, minimum. 

The rapper's pretty easy to please in the food and beverage dept -- 2 bottles of Moet -- although he does demand Polo crewnecks at his ready disposal. 

Now that's some sweet fashion hustle.

Stevie Wonder Real Rain Gives Way to Purple Rain Tribute

5/1/2016 6:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Stevie Wonder told a disappointed crowd in New Orleans Jazz Fest was being torpedoed by a rainstorm, but he brought them back to life with a different type of rain.

Stevie, bullhorn in hand, led a tribute to Prince with a rousing rendition of "Purple Rain."   

The crowd at least left semi-satisfied.

A noticeably pregnant Janay took to her Instagram page Saturday to make the announcement ... and said she's 21 weeks along. It doesn't appear Ray or Janay know if they're having a boy or girl but they've already got a 4-year-old daughter named Rayven.

Congrats!!

Carmen’s good looks are Electra-fying!

Here’s a 24-year-old version of the "Baywatch" brunette at a Playboy party in 1996 (left) and 20 years later ... the lighter looking beach blonde -- who recently celebrated her 44th birthday -- at an event in Beverly Hills earlier this month (right).

Wiz Khalifa My Favorite Beer is High Life Adjacent

5/1/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0427-wiz-khalifa-tmz-khalifa-kush-01Wiz Khalifa doesn't always drink beer -- he's more of a smoker -- but when he does he likes his brew infused with hemp.  

Yeah, Khalifa is gearing up to launch his own line of beer, juice, carbonated juice, energy drinks, and non-alcoholic cocktails ... all infused with the hemp plant. 

According to the trademark docs Wiz filed he wants to sell the drinks under his "Khalifa Kush" handle ... which is also the brand he uses to push his strains of weed.

Bad news though if you're looking for a liquid high -- even though hemp looks like weed, the THC levels are too low to produce a strong buzz. 

Good news for the Beyhive -- Wiz is also making a hemp-laced lemonade. Becky not included.

5/1/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0428-lucky-lehrer-house-FACEBOOK-MLS-01Iconic punk drummer Keith "Lucky" Lehrer has scored a new home in the Hollywood Hills just a few blocks from his former palace. Asking price ... nearly $2 million!

He had plenty of dough for the purchase after flipping a different Hollywood Hills home back in March. Lucky walked away with $6.8 mil from that deal.

Punk rocker by night. Budding real estate mogul by day.

Ryan Sheckler Sued You Sold Me a Bum House

5/1/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

429-ryan-sheckler-instagramRyan Sheckler and his family are being sued for almost a million bucks for allegedly screwing over the guy who bought their house.

The San Clemente crib went for $1.5 mil, and the buyer expected it to be in tip-top condition -- far from it, he says. According to the lawsuit, the kitchen appliances and entertainment system were shot, and the latter alone will cost $75k to fix.

But there's more. The buyer says the roof leaks like a sieve ... something that became painfully apparent after the grand entrance of El Nino.

The buyer wants $850k ... partly to cover his losses and partly to teach the Sheckler family a lesson.
