Paris Jackson Rejecting Rehab ... Post Suicide Scare

3/19/2019 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Paris Jackson is being encouraged by people very close to her to go to rehab, but she's resisting.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ...  those close to Paris suggested rehab after what law enforcement says was a suicide attempt over the weekend, landing her in the hospital. We're told the attempted suicide shows some serious underlying problems ... they say Paris is dealing with all sorts of emotional issues as well as substance abuse issues. 

Our sources say Paris' team had help ready to spring into action Sunday, but she refused. 

TMZ broke the story ... Paris slit her wrists and was rushed to a hospital early Saturday morning, where she was placed on a temporary 5150 hold. We're told she's been distraught ever since "Leaving Neverland" began airing.

As to why Paris was released just hours after she was hospitalized, our sources say she told the hospital that had admitted her that her lawyers were taking her to UCLA Medical Center, and the hospital let her go with the attorneys, but she never ended up at UCLA.

Paris is almost 21 -- she's an adult, and therefore the decision to check into rehab is hers and hers alone.

Travis Scott Record-Breaking Performance ... $1.7 Million Los Angeles Tour Stop

3/19/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If Travis Scott's gonna have to wait to repair his relationship with Kylie Jenner because they're both too busy ... at least he's making a ton of money in the process.

We're told Travis has joined some elite company after his February 8 Astroworld concert at The Forum sold out and grossed a whopping $1.7 million. Yup, nearly $2 million for ONE SHOW. We're told he sold more than 16,300 tickets.

This is huge for Travis because the sellout means Travis is only one of a few artists to have repeat sellouts at The Forum in a 12-month period. He also sold out shows on December 19 and 20.

To put this feat in perspective ... Travis now joins legends like Garth Brooks, Juan Gabriel, The Grateful Dead, Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Sting and Michael Jackson to accomplish repeat sellouts since 1990. And, get this ... the $1.7M is the highest-grossing, single-night engagement of the Astroworld tour. #Goosebumps 

But, while the rapper continues stockpiling career accolades, it's been rocky waters at home.

As we first reported ... Travis and Kylie haven't had a chance to fully repair their relationship after she accused him of cheating, largely in part to each building their own empires.

For what it's worth ... Travis has just 10 more dates left on his tour.

Nicki Minaj I'm Not a Married Woman ... Despite Calling Boyfriend 'Husband'

3/19/2019 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj did not secretly walk down the aisle with bad boy boyfriend Kenneth Petty, despite recently referring to him as her "husband."

As you know ... the rumors started kicking into overdrive after Nicki called her new man her "husband" on the latest episode of "Queen Radio." 

Sources close to Nicki tell TMZ ... she's very much in love with Kenneth, but any reports saying they're married are false ... despite what she said. 

We broke the story ... the superstar rapper is considering getting hitched to Kenneth -- and they are talking marriage after just a few months of dating -- but we're told they haven't jumped the broom.

As for Kenneth's checkered history with the law, which includes convictions for first-degree attempted rape and manslaughter, we're told Nicki doesn't care about his troubled past because he treats her great ... and she's tired of people bashing him. 

Bottom line ... Nicki calling Kenneth her hubby is kinda like Travis Scott calling Kylie Jenner his "wife" ... although that seems to be on shaky ground these days. 

Danielle Bregoli Sweet Sixteens Are Overrated ... I've Got A Better Idea

3/19/2019 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Danielle Bregoli is too busy growing her business empire to be bothered with a lame-ass sweet sixteen. 

We got Danielle Monday at LAX, where our photog asked how she's celebrating her impending 16th birthday ... Danielle says her people are busy planning a party for her, but she'd rather just kick it at home on her big day. Yeah, we're kinda shocked too. 

Bhad Bhabie makes some pretty good points though ... fancy parties just never turn out how they're supposed to. And, who needs the stress that comes with it?!?

Of course, Danielle ain't your typical teen ... she's already got her own Snapchat series, futuristic billboard ad, certified gold single, a music vid with DMX and a huge endorsement deal. No wonder she wants a night off.

Skipping the birthday bash might be a smart idea after all ... good luck finding the millionaire a present.

Dallas Cowboys' Captain Shoves Cops In Crazy Bar Brawl

3/19/2019 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dallas Cowboys defensive end Tyrone Crawford -- a defensive team captain -- shoved TWO police officers while they were making an arrest during a bar brawl in Florida, TMZ Sports has learned. 

Crawford was at the Coyote Ugly Saloon in Panama City on March 15, when things got violent around midnight. Sources tell us Crawford's crew had gotten into it with bar staff. 

The fight was epic -- in a bad way -- multiple people suffered bloody injuries, including bar staff. One employee suffered a broken foot in the melee.

Cops raced to the scene ... and witnessed 8 to 10 people still fighting outside, this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports. 

The report does not mention Crawford by name, but we've spoken with witnesses who are adamant Crawford was a key player in the incident. 

At one point, Crawford -- 6'4", 285 pounds -- bull rushed his way through two cops and aggressively put his hands on TWO officers who were in the process of handcuffing one of the alleged combatants. 

Multiple cops swarmed Crawford and restrained him -- while pushing him away from the arrest scene. 

The incident involving Crawford was captured on the bar's surveillance video and shows the scene play out clear as day. 

Despite the chaotic scene, Crawford was NOT arrested. 

We've reached out to Crawford and the Cowboys for comment -- so far, no word back from either camp. 

Mathesar In 'Galaxy Quest' 'Memba Him?!

3/19/2019 12:01 AM PDT

'L&HH: Atlanta' New Season Trailer Why Spice Went White Face

3/18/2019 5:05 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Love & Hip Hop' star Spice was apparently feeling pressured by the music industry about her "look," which might be why she went full white face to promote new music ... or so it seems.

In an exclusive clip teasing season 8, obtained by TMZ, Spice is being told by an artist development agent that her appearance is sub-par, which sends her barreling into a doctor's office as she starts to consider whether she should potentially bleach her skin. 

It's pretty dramatic ... the doc even tells her she should get a psychological evaluation before pursuing any bleaching. It sure looks like Spice didn't appreciate that. 

The trailer captures just part of the convo that seems to have sent Spice down the rabbit hole of questioning her "look," but VH1 released the full thing. The guy, Von, doesn't say anything about lightening, but suggests her current image might not work in the U.S.

As we reported ... Spice definitely went full white face as part of the rollout for her new mixtape, "Black Hypocrisy," which shocked the hell out of everyone and their mothers.

Interestingly enough, Spice later said publicly that she had not, in fact, bleached her skin ... and that the photo was aimed at raising awareness of colorism among black people.

That's definitely not how the new trailer plays it here, but it sounds like folks will have to tune in to see what really went down. Season 8 premieres on March 25. 

Miley Cyrus Breaks Down at Janice Freeman's Memorial

3/18/2019 3:39 PM PDT

Miley Cyrus was so overcome with emotion at the memorial service for one of her favorite 'Voice' contestants ... she couldn't fight back the tears.

Miley attended the Celebration of Life for Janice Freeman Monday at Mariners Church in Irvine ... where she poured her heart out and honored the former 'Voice' singer. You see Miley break down but she still manages to get a laugh when she says, "I was never her coach, ever. She was always mine."

Before surrendering the stage to her dad, Billy Ray, who led a rousing rendition of "Amazing Grace" ... Miley had some touching words for Janice, whom Miley was paired up with during season 13 of "The Voice."

Miley said, "I've learned more from her than anyone that I've ever gotten the honor to be in the room with, not just vocally, I should've gotten more lessons than I did, but she taught me everything that I know about love."

She went on to say, "And, to be here, and I had planned on singing a song for her, but just losing her is just too much for me. So ... my dad's gonna take care of this for me. But, I'll always be your sister, I'm here for you, and I'm here for your family, and Janice I'll miss you more than I could ever say."

Miley joined her dad in song.

We broke the story ... Janice died from a blood clot in her lungs. She had been battling a combination of bronchitis and lupus. Janice was 33.

Former Disney Star Kyle Massey I'm Being Extorted ... Denies Sexual Misconduct Allegations

3/18/2019 3:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Former Disney star Kyle Massey is vehemently denying allegations he sent sexually explicit photos to a 13-year-old girl ... claiming the lawsuit against him is a clear and simple case of extortion. 

We broke the story ... the "That's So Raven" star is being sued by a teenage girl who claims he sent her images of his erect penis, along with sexually explicit text messages. She's suing for at least $1.5 million.

Kyle's lawyer, Lee Hutton, tells TMZ his client couldn't be clearer ... "No child should ever be exposed to sexually explicit materials and I unequivocally and categorically deny any alleged misconduct."

Kyle says it's all just a money grab ... he claims earlier this year the accuser's legal team demanded $1.5m threatening to go public to destroy his career if he did not comply. Hutton says his client told the accuser to pound sand.

Kyle is also asking his fans and the public "not to jump to conclusions based on the allegations alone but reserve judgment until the whole story comes to light, proving these allegations baseless.”

Mob Boss Frank Cali Murder Suspect Shows Off 'MAGA Forever' ... Under Protective Custody

3/18/2019 2:15 PM PDT

2:15 PM PT -- Anthony Comello's attorney, Robert C. Gottlieb, tells TMZ that his client has waived extradition Monday and will be arraigned in a Staten Island court next week. Gottlieb also tells us that Comello has been placed in protective custody after receiving "serious threats," where he will remain while his case is pending. Gottlieb adds that Comello's family cannot believe the accusations against Anthony, and promises to get to the truth of the matter.

The man suspected of killing Gambino crime boss Frank Cali came to court with a message on his hand ... "United We Stand MAGA Forever."

Anthony Comello faced a New Jersey judge Monday and displayed his left palm with words written with a blue ballpoint pen. A court officer scoffed at Comello -- who was arrested and taken into custody over the weekend -- asking him why he was waving his hand to reporters. His response ... "Why? I'm handcuffed," suggesting he couldn't do any harm by showcasing his palm.

Our law enforcement sources said cops believe Comello may have murdered Cali because the mob boss was blocking him from dating Cali's niece.

You'll recall, domestic terrorism suspect Cesar A. Sayoc pledged allegiance to Trump  ... festooning his van with tons of pro-Trump stickers and allegedly sending pipe bombs to CNN, President Obama and others. 

Then there's Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz, who wore a MAGA hat during target practice just months before killing 17 people at his former high school.

Michael Jackson's Ex-Bodyguard I Know MJ Was Into Women ... We Talked Chicks All the Time

3/18/2019 1:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Jackson was sexually attracted to women -- according to his former bodyguard, who says he and the King of Pop shared lots o' locker room talk.

Bill Whitfield -- MJ's ex-security guard of two years, who wrote a book about his time with Michael -- insisted in a new interview on the podcast "Hidden Truth Show with Jim Breslo" that his client was absolutely heterosexual ... saying they discussed ladies plenty of times.

Specifically, Bill says they talked about women Michael found "very attractive" during long drives they'd take together. 

Bill even gets into a story about a college girl they approached in the street once, adding that a bashful MJ copped her number and talked to her at least twice.

But, Breslo asks the obvious question ... was it just talk, or did MJ actually hook up with any women on Bill's watch? Bill says he isn't gonna put Mike's private sex life out there, but he assures Breslo that MJ did spend time with women privately, leaving it at that.

The interview comes on the heels of the allegations made by Wade Robson and James Safechuck in "Leaving Neverland," which all but suggest Michael would exclusively prey on young male victims.

Bill claims he knows that not to be true. As you might know ... Michael was once married to Lisa Marie Presley and had 2 kids with his second bride, Debbie Rowe. His third kid, Blanket, was conceived via surrogate.

Part two of Jim's interview with Bill will be dropping soon.  

Mama June's BF Geno Allegedly Threatened to Kill Her ... Family Blames Him for Her Arrest

3/18/2019 11:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

11:01 AM PT -- According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Geno allegedly threatened to kill June during a domestic dispute. Cops say when they arrived on scene, Geno was placed under arrest and admitted to having a needle on him ... June told cops the SUV the two were sitting in belonged to her, and she'd take all blame for whatever was inside.

After a search, cops discovered another needle, a white powdery substance -- which June allegedly said was crack cocaine -- and a pipe. June also had $1,340 in her bra.

Geno was ordered by the court to stay away from June after the incident ... an order that was seemingly ignored when the two hit up a casino together Saturday.Mama June is headed down a rough path, and there's no one else to blame but her boyfriend, Geno Doak ... so say members of her family.

Sources connected to Mama June's brood tell TMZ ... her family is placing guilt over the reality star's recent arrest squarely at Geno's feet, as they feel he's been an awful influence on June since they started dating around 3 years ago. 

We're told June's family believes Geno's criminal history speaks for itself, and it's no coincidence she got into trouble while in his company. He does have quite the rap sheet -- Geno's been arrested for burglary, theft and damage to property. He's also done jail time.

TMZ broke the story ... Mama June and Geno were arrested at an Alabama gas station last week after someone called cops to report they were involved in a domestic incident. When police arrived, they say they found drugs and drug paraphernalia on both of them, including traces of crack on Mama June and a needle in Geno's pocket. 

Interestingly enough, Mama June was spotted hanging with Geno at a casino a few days after her arrest ... hitting a slot machine with her BF right by her side. It certainly appears her family's concerns are falling on deaf ears.

That doesn't change how the family feels though. Our sources say Mama June's fam thinks she'll continue putting herself at risk as long as she's with him. Not only that, but they feel that her daughter, Alana (aka Honey Boo Boo, who's only 13) is in an unsafe environment.
