Three 6 Mafia

Crunchy Black Pleads Guilty

In Meth Mix-Up

4/30/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0415-crunchy-black-mug-shot-tmz-01

Former Three 6 Mafia rapper Crunchy Black will have plenty of time to study the difference between cocaine and meth -- he's gonna spend the next 7 months in jail for his Vegas drug bust.

CB was in court Wednesday and pled guilty to misdemeanor drug possession. TMZ broke the story ... Crunchy was arrested earlier this month for meth.

Crunch had the worst defense we've heard in a while. According to the police report, when an officer found the drugs on Crunchy ... he replied, "Oh damn. I was trying to buy that powder, not meth." 

The Oscar winner got 30 days for the drugs, but also had 6 months to serve for a domestic violence case he'd skipped out on -- so, he'll do the time consecutively.

I'm Doing Just Fine

EXCLUSIVE

Original Eagles bassist Randy Meisner wants to set the record straight -- his life is not in danger, and his wife isn't force feeding him bottles of vodka.

Randy and wife Lana hit up a deli in Studio City Wednesday and told our photog they were shocked to hear news of allegations claiming Lana keeps Randy in a constant drunken state.

As we first reported ... Randy thinks all the conservatorship talk is really a plot to grab his cash, but in this clip he makes it clear -- he doesn't need anyone making decisions for him. 

On a lighter note ... the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer talks about his infamous backstage brawl with Glenn Frey in 1977 ... which lead to Randy quitting the band.

'We're Not Thugs'

EXCLUSIVE

Count Anwan Glover from "The Wire" among those who feel the rioting and looting in Baltimore is doing disservice to the memory of Freddie Gray, whose death while in police custody triggered the protests.

Glover -- who played Slim Charles in the iconic HBO series set in Baltimore -- said he believes President Obama needs to become even more involved than he has been, to provide leadership for the city.

He also says if Slim were in Baltimore right now, he'd be using his "power in the street" to organize the youth and put a stop to the violence. 

Slim did have a way with words ...

EXCLUSIVE

0429-50-cent-performing-GETTY-0150 Cent is jumping on the money train this weekend, where he plans to score huge bank off the backs of Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

Fact is, 50 may be hedging his bets. You may recall ... he's put $1.6 mil on the line, betting Floyd Mayweather will put Manny Pacquiao in his place.

And we're told he also made a deal with Effen Vodka to make around $500k for a show 2 weeks later at Pool After Dark in Atlantic City.

Rosie O'Donnell's Ex

Looks Like Someone

Is Trying To Make Rosie Jealous

4/29/2015 2:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So on the same day Michelle Rounds filed for sole custody of the child she shares with ex Rosie O'Donnell, she hit the town with a smoking hot model. What are the odds???? 

Rounds was out Tuesday night at Madera Kitchen where she walked out with her arm around Carmen Ortega ... who once dated Reggie Bush and was also possibly maybe the reason Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks split. 

We can't say Rounds and Ortega are together. In fact, a rep for Ortega says they're just working on a clothing line together -- but Rounds still went out of her way to snuggle close to Ortega for the cameras to see. 

Not that we can blame her.

Justin Bieber

Triggers International Incident

Justin Bieber
's like a Bond villain -- an internationally wanted man -- and there's a push to get him locked up in Rome, but it hasn't happened yet ... TMZ has learned. 

Rumors swirled Bieber got busted Wednesday morning when police officers swarmed outside his hotel in Rome. Truth is ... no arrest was made, but our Bieber sources confirm he is on an Interpol list because of an outstanding warrant in Argentina. 

As we've reported ... Justin is wanted for not appearing to face charges he allegedly got his bodyguards to beat up a Buenos Aires photog in 2013.

We're told authorities in Argentina have contacted Interpol -- and Justin had to go through secondary search at Customs when he flew into Italy -- but there's been no arrest. Bieber's legal team believes there's a grace period before cops bust him on the warrant ... which was just issued earlier this month.

As for the officers outside the hotel ... we're told they were consulting with Justin's security team on crowd control.

Not so fun fact for Biebs -- Italy and Argentina have an extradition treaty.

Justin's in Rome to shoot "Zoolander 2." He'd better nail it in one take.
