8/22/2016 1:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822_DMX_TMZ_2DMX has a challenge most parents would find daunting ... remembering the names of all of his kids, which now number 15.

The baker's dozen plus 2 was born Friday in NYC ... weighing in at 6 lbs, 10 oz.

His name -- Exodus Simmons. The mom is X's longtime GF, Desiree. It's her first child.

The rapper missed the delivery -- he was in Arizona when Exodus popped out. But he flew to NYC for the baby's first night in the world.

X tells us he's overjoyed, calling the baby a "blessing." 

Lots of blessings.

Shannen Doherty Scores Settlement in Cancer Lawsuit

8/22/2016 1:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822-ShannenDoherty-instagramShannen Doherty just landed a settlement in that huge $15 million lawsuit she filed against her ex-manager for allegedly screwing up her health insurance.

We broke the story ... Shannen sued her former management firm, claiming they mismanaged her insurance premiums and let her policy lapse at a critical time when doctors could've done an early detection of her breast cancer.

According to docs, both sides agreed to settle the matter late last week. The amount of money Shannen is getting is confidential. The battle was really heating up right before the settlement -- lawyers for her ex-manager tried to get Shannen to sit for round 2 of a deposition ... questioning how sick she really was from her cancer and treatments.

It's a moot point now.

Demi Lovato Sleigh Bells Sues Are Ya Listenin' Demi?

8/22/2016 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0820-demi-lovato-tmz-02Demi Lovato has been sued by the group Sleigh Bells for allegedly ripping off their critically acclaimed song, "Infinity Guitars."

Demi's song "Stars" -- released last year as a bonus track in her album "Confident" -- has "virtually identical content" to "Infinity Guitars" ... so claims the group. The lawsuit says, "The combination of the hand claps and bass drum, structured as 3 quarter beats and a rest ... is at least substantially similar in both works."

"Infinity Guitars," released in 2010, was a massive critically acclaimed hit, scoring in Rolling Stone as one of the best songs of the year.

Last November, producers said "We did not use any samples in Demi Lovato's song Stars. Demi was also not involved with the production. She only wrote top line."

Sleigh Bells wants some serious profits from Demi and the other defendants, and they want to yank her song from getting more play.

U.S. Swimmer Jimmy Feigen Charity Donation to Boost Brazil's Olympians

8/22/2016 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0820-James-Feigen-gettySwimmer Jimmy Feigen's nearly $11k deal to avoid a Rio jail could backfire against future Team USA Olympians.

TMZ has learned Feigen's $10,800 donation has been tagged to spruce up training facilities for the Reaction Institute in the Rio favela known as City of God. Specifically, we're told the money is going to help fix walls and prevent weather damage to judo equipment. 

That equipment is used to give children from the favelas judo training, and put them on the road to becoming Olympians -- who might one day whoop-up on American judo fighters. Brazil's judo gold medalist this year, Rafaela Silva, once trained at the Institute ... so it has a good track record. 

As we reported, Feigen struck a deal with prosecutors in Rio ... who agreed to let him off the hook, if he made the donation.

Folks at the Reaction Institute are pumped for the dough, and tell us they hope Jimmy will visit once the work is done -- but we're guessing he won't be back in Brazil anytime soon. 

Disney Alligator Attack Guest Sounded Warning Before Attack

8/22/2016 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822-disney-land-gator-attack-grand-floridian-GETTY-01A guest at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort saw an alligator looming in the area where 2-year-old Lane Graves was playing ... and she even sounded the alarm to someone at the hotel.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Orange County Sheriff's Office released a final report -- obtained by TMZ -- about the circumstances surrounding Lane's death.

According to the report, Shawna Giacomini, a North Carolina tourist, told investigators she was on the beach at 8:15 PM with her 2 daughters, and the girls saw an alligator about 5 feet from the shore, near the marsh. The older daughter told the Walt Disney World AV/Movie Coordinator about the gator.

The trio went to the store, and when they returned at around 9 PM the attack had already occurred.

The report details the attack, explaining Lane went toward the water with his dad and a pail. The dad saw a splash, looked over and saw the gator had locked onto Lane's head. He tried pulling the gator's mouth open, to no avail, and the gator dragged Lane into deep water.

The cause of death was cranio-cervical trauma and drowning.

The report is damning because of the lack of signs warning of gators, which the authors call "predatory."

Prince No Conrad Murray in His Death

8/22/2016 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0602-prince-getty-3Prince's deadly dose of the powerful painkiller Fentanyl was NOT prescribed by a doctor, which means it's a near impossibility anyone will ever be charged with his murder.

Law enforcement sources confirm investigators have not turned up a prescription for the Fentanyl. The Fentanyl pills found at Paisley Park were in a bottle labeled hydrocodone -- and it's now believed they were illegally obtained.

Our sources tell us whoever gave Prince the drug would face a 3rd degree murder charge under Minnesota law. However, without a prescription, we're told Prince's doctors would be in the clear ... so there'll be no Conrad Murray-esque trial.

Investigators would have to track down the source of the illicit Fentanyl -- it's reportedly an epidemic problem in Minnesota -- for anyone to stand trial for murder.

It's still possible a doctor could get nailed for over-prescribing other opioids. Remember, we broke the story ... Prince nearly OD'd on Percocet 6 days before his death at Paisley Park.

Chris Brown Off the Hook for ATV Joyride

8/22/2016 8:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-chris-brown-tmz-01Chris Brown just scored a W in his legal battle with his pissed off neighbors -- who, for some reason, backed down and now the LAPD's dropped its disturbing the peace investigation.

Law enforcement sources tells us Chris won't face any charges for allegedly disturbing the peace back in May ... when he was accused of terrorizing the streets of his neighborhood on an ATV.

You'll recall ... there was even video of a joyride taken by one of his neighbors. We're told the one who ended up calling cops didn't want to cooperate, so LAPD decided to close the case.

You gotta wonder why the neighbors suddenly went soft. One of 'em was on "TMZ Live," and seemed determined to go the distance with Brown. Hmm ...

Drake Blows Up Meek with 'Back to Back' in Philly!

8/22/2016 6:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Drake walked right into Meek Mill's house and took a big ole metaphorical dump on his living room floor by not only performing "Back to Back" ... but adding a new, personal shot.

Drake performed Sunday night in Philly -- Meek's hometown -- and refused to take his foot off Meek's throat. Seriously, we thought at this point this beef was well done ... but Drizzy went HAM.

Check out his message to Meek at the end of the diss anthem -- he made sure the crowd knew it wasn't about Philly, in general ... and only about Nicki's BF.

Everyone shoulda seen this coming after Drake's Saturday night gig in D.C. ... where he flat out called his nemesis a p****.

Eddie Cibrian Ditches Last Trace of Brandi Glanville

8/22/2016 8:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822_eddie_house_launchEddie Cibrian is washing his hands clean of ex Brandi Glanville by getting rid of their L.A. starter home.

Eddie got $635k for the 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath townhouse in Toluca Lake, CA. He'd originally listed it for $100k more than that back in February -- but we're guessing LeAnn Rimes is just thrilled to unload the tie to his ex. 

Eddie and Brandi shared the pad in happier times ... aka before the bitter divorce. 

The pad is 1,800 square feet with a rooftop patio overlooking the Hollywood Hills. Alex Galuz of Crescent Realty Corp closed the deal for Eddie.
