Nashville Walgreens Worker Shoots Pregnant Woman ... Claims She Was Shoplifting

A pregnant woman was shot at a Walgreens after one of the workers claims to have chased her into the lot following alleged shoplifting ... which then spurred a premature delivery.

Per local reports, cops say 21-year-old Mitarius Boyd -- who's reported to have been working as the team lead on Wednesday when this horrific incident unfolded -- shot 34-year-old Travonsha Ferguson while trying to stop what he says was an active theft in progress.

Boyd reportedly told investigators that he fired his weapon at both Ferguson and another woman she was with after pursuing them to their car ... where he claims they were trying to unload a bunch of stuff they'd allegedly just jacked from inside the Walgreens.

According to him, he felt his life was in danger when one of the women started to spray him with mace -- as he says he didn't know if they had a dangerous weapon on them. In other words, he's claiming self-defense here ... and has not been arrested at this point.

Cops say Ferguson -- who's reported to have been 7 months pregnant -- was hit 8 times ... twice in each leg and four times in the stomach. She and her friend made it into the car after the gun went off, and the friend is said to have dropped her off at the ER on her own.

Doctors attended to her immediately, and she underwent 3 surgeries. During those procedures, reports say an emergency C-section was done to take out the baby ... who was miraculously not hit during all this. Both she and her child are now in critical condition.

The case is under investigation, and the D.A. is reviewing the Walgreens employee's claim -- namely, that he had to shoot in order to protect himself from imminent danger.

As you can imagine, this has gotten a big reaction online -- especially from those citing Walgreens' well-known "no chase" policy ... in which workers aren't supposed to go after suspected shoplifters. Walgreens doesn't appear to have commented on the situation yet.

Shawn Mendes Pushes Camila Away During Hot Dance ... After Coachella Kiss 🤔

breaking you off ...

1:09 PM PT -- Shawn and Camila's apparent rekindling is getting a little murkier -- especially when you see this video of them dancing ... and him pushing her away.


Check out this clip, obtained by TMZ, that shows SM and CC getting close and cozy on the Coachella grounds during their reunion Friday ... which did eventually see them locking lips again. Here, though, it looks like Shawn got fed up with the grinding that was going on.


1:09 PM PT -- At the end of the clip, you see Shawn playfully push Camila away ... essentially breaking her off. We're told the shove-off here happened after they were kissing and flirting in the crowd -- and that Shawn walked away from her after this ... with Camila seemingly going after him, according to one eyewitness who says they saw this go down.


Hard to say what it all means, frankly ... but if Shawn left her hanging like that, that's not really a great sign of getting back together, on its face.


10:34 AM PT -- Well, it seems like Shawn and Camila are back together ... 'cause their reunion was sealed with a kiss.



Shawn Mendes reunited with his old flame at Coachella ... one Camila Cabello.

We haven't seen them together since their split more than a year ago, and not much is known about what was behind the breakup, but here they were Friday, chatting it up in a clip posted by KIIS FM on Twitter.

The couple, who broke up in November 2021, seemed pretty chill with each other ... she says something to Shawn and he responds with drink in hand.

They both looked great ... Camila wore a white bustier top and Shawn was rocking a tee with a bandana.

Now here's the thing .... the woman lots of folks think Shawn is dating was nearby -- 51-year-old Dr. Jocelyne Miranda. They've been together A LOT in recent months, so there's definitely smoke. She's his chiropractor, but it looks much more than professional.

Love the Coachella drama!!!

Jennifer Connelly Gets Labeled a '7' by Twitter Troll ... Who Tried Shaming Zendaya

Jennifer Connelly (in the '90s) was way more attractive than Zendaya is today -- and she was considered pretty mid on the hotness scale ... so suggests this weekend's Twitter doofus.

Here's the deal ... a troll on the bird app has everyone fired up over a ludicrous tweet he posted Friday -- in which he tries to shade Zendaya by comparing her to Connelly ... but he inadvertently shaded JC too in the process -- and folks are stunned by his measuring stick.

This fella writes, "Any zoomer who thinks right pic is above average attractive doesn't understand that in the '90s, a '7' looked like left pic." In his tweet, he's got a photo of young Connelly next to an unflattering pic of Z ... so already, Sun Optimist is off to a biased start.

He ends with this wild statement, "'Above average' meant something else back then. There'd be like ten girls as or more beautiful than Connelly working at every chain restaurant."

In other words, this guy is saying that young women in the '90s were simply much prettier, on average, than your everyday hottie in 2023 -- and he's using Jen as an example ... by claiming you could find a million Connellys anywhere in America back then. Again, he's also saying Jen wasn't even considered a true dime in this regard ... a few notches below, in fact.

Two things ... he's a jerk for pitting these two beautiful women against each other -- but also ... a lot of people think he's dead wrong about Connelly, specifically. Many say, she IS a 10!

Zendaya is no slouch either, of course, so his entire premise is absurd. In a follow-up tweet, he says the modern "zoomer" thinks heavier-set women are the cream of the crop ... so he clearly has a bone to pick with the conversation about modern beauty standards, etc.

Not to fan the flames on this or anything, but considering Zen and Jen are knockouts in their own right ... we are somewhat curious who the public considers the lovelier dame here.

Who'd You Rather -- Connelly or Zendaya???

So, we gotta ask ... who'd you rather -- Connelly or Coleman??? 👀

Kendall Jenner Gets Her Groove On at Coachella ... During Bad Bunny's Set!!!

Kendall Jenner was front and center to watch her boyfriend, Bad Bunny, bring Coachella to its hands and knees during his headlining set Friday -- and she was dancing up a storm.

The model was spotted out in the crowd while BB hit the main stage a little before midnight ... and she had a great view of his performance while surrounded by friends (and bodyguards). As you can see ... KJ was feeling the tunes, including the up-tempo salsa part!

Kendall did a little twist in line with the beat, so it seems she might've learned a new step or two while dating the reggaeton star ... whom she's been with, publicly, for 2 months now.

That's not all Kendall was into during the show ... looks like she got herself into a conga line, of sorts, while BB continued to do his thing. There was a huge smile on her face as she clutched to a pal of hers -- and she certainly didn't care that people noticed her either.

We shoulda figured Kendall would be here to support Bad Bunny -- fact is, they're kinda inseparable lately ... and their relationship is going more public by the day ... and there's nothing more high visibility than Coachella.

This also speaks to the fact that Kendall and Bad Bunny are, in fact, the real deal -- something that's been signaled for a while now ... especially with their recent intimate date.

BB is scheduled to return to Coachella for weekend 2, so it'll be interesting to see if Kendall makes it back here in 7 days to watch her man again. Something tells us ... she just might.

Cheers to the happy couple.

Donald Trump Jr. Guys, I Know Bud Light Screwed Up But They Back Republicans

Triggered with Donald Trump Jr.

Donald Trump Jr. is trying to put the fire out on the Bud Light outrage after they teamed up with a transgender person -- and his rationale is ... they actually support the GOP.

The ex-Prez's oldest son made his pitch on his podcast, "Triggered with Donald Trump Jr.," where he opened Thursday's episode with a plea aimed at the MAGA crowd ... and, presumably, anyone else who's vowed to cut Bud Light out of their beer-drinking regimen.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

He says he gets the indignation ... noting that, in his mind, Anheuser-Busch did indeed screw up by polarizing their key demographic with a stunt like this -- but he also says they deserve forgiveness considering some new intel he says he and his team have stumbled upon.

DTJ says Anheuser-Busch has actually donated a ton of money to Republican-led campaigns over the years -- including Speaker Kevin McCarthy's bid for Nancy Pelosi's job last year.

He also claims that -- according to some reporting he says he saw -- the whole Dylan Mulvaney move was actually the result of a rogue marketing employee at the company ... and that the higher-ups had no idea about it. In fact, Don says Anheuser-Busch is usually not as "woke" as its corporate counterparts -- and that they shouldn't be punished for this.

It's interesting that he's going to bat for the beer company, because they've actually taken a somewhat significant hit in the wake of all this -- reports suggest their market cap has fallen by as much as $5 billion in recent weeks ... although it's hard to say why exactly.


Some think it's a no-brainer -- the Bud Light ban appears to be working, and it's hurting their bottom line. Because of that, it seems, Don Jr.'s telling folks to stand down and buy again.

Time will tell if people will listen to him or not ... they're pretty fired up about this one.

Coachella 2023 Day 1 Brings Out The Stars En Masse!!

Day one of Coachella 2023 was awash with celebs, who came out in droves to party and enjoy the music.

The world's most famous stars descended Friday on the desert festival in Indio, CA, which is home to the wild, back-to-back weekend event.

Among the recognizable faces were The Weeknd, John Legend, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Bebe Rexa, Tyga, Benny Blanco, Simi Khadra, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Saweetie, Don Toliver, Kate Hudson, Danny Fujikawa and Lewis Hamilton.

Of course, they were all scrambling to see the array of talented performers -- everyone from Blink-182 and Bad Bunny to Pusha-T and Becky G.

Besides all the normal drinking and other stuff that goes on, the A-listers also enjoyed some perks, courtesy of Kendall Jenner.

KJ was hosting her 818 Tequila brand outpost for festivalgoers so they could get free essentials and 818 limited edition merch on sale.

Sounds like a pretty good deal. Day two of the fun has already started.

Blink-182 Blows The House Down At Coachella Travis Beat Those Drums with No Distress!!!


Blink-182 opened Coachella with a mesmerizing performance that blew the house down Friday ... and drummer Travis Barker was in fighting form with no signs of injury.

Trav and bandmates, Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus, stepped out onto the Sahara stage as the sun was setting for their jam-packed concert at the desert festival in Indio, CA. ... and the vibe was joyful for their first show in nine years as Trav hit the skins with everything he could muster.

Of course, one of the main concerns everyone had was Trav's much-publicized hand injury. As you recall, Trav underwent surgery to repair his ring finger back in March and he posted gnarly photos of his injuries during his recovery.

Well, as it turned out, there wasn't a hint that Trav's finger was bothering him throughout the one-hour-plus show. And Trav and Co. never once brought up the issue, probably 'cause there wasn't one.

As for their set list, the band played many of their hit songs, such as “Girl at the Rock Show," “Feeling This," “All The Small Things,” “Miss You” and “What’s My Age Again?” The tunes all sounded great and, in between songs, there was the usual funny banter between Tom and Mark.

Trav's wife, Kourtney Kardashian, was also a main attraction. Donning dark sunglasses and a black feathered shawl with a hoodie, Kourtney stood on the side of the stage, proudly cheering on her husband and playing the role of number one fan.

After the lights dimmed post-performance, Trav walked off stage and got the warmest of receptions from Kourtney, who jumped right into his arms.

On a scale of 1 to 10, mark this performance a thousand!!

Coachella Day 1 Stars Bring The 🔥 to the Desert!!!

The Indio desert was bumping into the wee hours of the morning as the 2023 Coachella Music and Arts festival rocked out on the Empire Polo Fields with some of the world's best talent, both on and off the stage!

Stars were feeling the love while getting into the festival feels like "Vanderpump Rules" cast members Ariana Madix and Dayna Kathan who shared a smooch for social media. Paris Jackson and Alessandra Ambrosio kept the classic boho vibes going with lots of hippy fringe and flashes of peace signs ... while G-Eazy and "Outerbanks" star Austin North kept it punk in black rock rags.

Blink-182 had lots of support from the side stage where Kourtney Kardashian kept things low-key and Landon Barker posed at a party before Travis Barker made his big return to the drums while playing to a packed Sahara Tent during a standout sunset performance.

You can always count on social media stars to pack the polo fields with head-turning looks ... and James Charles' denim duds alongside Lele Pons' chrome-bust mold were definitely worth a second glance!

If you thought that the models were going to skip out on the fun then you were way wrong. Justine Skye, Delilah Belle Hamlin, Madison Beer, Nicole Williams English and a bunch more long-legged hotties were making the desert landscape look like a catwalk.

Check out all the best photos to get a glimpse into how Hollywood gets into the best music festival in the world!

Now drink some water and get some rest ... we still have two more days of partying!

Drake Bell BROTHER TOLD COPS HE WAS SUICIDAL Over Child Custody Issue

Drake Bell's brother is the one who first got police involved in his missing person case ... telling cops Drake was threatening suicide in response to child custody issues with his estranged wife.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Drake's brother, Robert, called Orlando PD Wednesday night to say Drake was making suicidal statements about wanting to hang himself and not wanting to be alive anymore.

Drake's brother told police Drake was in Winter Park, FL to visit Janet, his estranged wife, and discuss their custody agreement for their son. Drake and Janet separated back in January.

Drake's brother told cops Drake was "distraught and made suicidal statements" in texts to their mother. He allegedly said he didn't want to live anymore, was going to drink excessively and hang himself.

He says he tried to make Drake come to his senses but he wasn't receptive ... so, Robert decided to call police.

TMZ broke the story ... Drake was reported missing Thursday, with police in Florida saying he was MIA and "considered missing and endangered."


On a 911 call from the case, an Orlando officer called another department for help locating Drake, characterizing the situation as a "possible attempted suicide." He repeated what Robert had told them about Drake's suicidal texts to family members on the West Coast.

As we first reported, we know Drake was hanging out with his son Tuesday at SeaWorld in Orlando. It's unclear what the custody issues are between Janet and Drake.

As you know ... Drake was ultimately found safe and sound shortly after being reported missing. Hours later, on Thursday evening, he tweeted, "You leave your phone in the car and don't answer for the night and this?"

Despite that attempt to make it seem like this was much ado about nothing, law enforcement tells TMZ ... deputies took action Thursday to ensure Drake receives a mental health evaluation.

Drake's attorney had no comment.

Bad Bunny and Post Malone Give Near-Perfect Performance At Coachella Minus Technical Difficulties


7:48 AM PT -- 4/17 -- Bad Bunny apologized for the technical issues after his show and shared a clip from practice.


Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Bad Bunny and Post Malone were fan faves at the kickoff of Coachella on Friday night ... but their performance suffered a brief hiccup, although it didn't put a damper on the mood.

Bunny brought Post out on stage during his two-hour show in the hot desert of Indio, CA, and the packed crowd just went berserk.

The superstars were playing acoustic guitar versions of Bunny's hits, "La Cancion" and "Yonaguni," when Post's mic suddenly went dead.

Check out video, obtained by TMZ, showing Bunny singing into a mic -- which was working just fine -- as Post was strumming his guitar, which was barely audible due to the technical difficulties. But, the two just kinda laughed it all off as the sea of fans began singing a capella to fill the unusual void on stage.

Despite their best efforts, they couldn't get Post's mic back up and running, and he made a graceful exit as Bad Bunny polished off his near-perfect set.


At another point during Bad Bunny's performance, there was another slight mishap. Post was dancing around the stage and took a little spill, but recovered nicely.

All in all, it was an exceptional performance by the two musical giants. And this surely won't be the last time we see them working together.

Bill Maher Trump Indictment Will Backfire ... It's Just a Sex Case


Bill Maher feels VERY strongly ... Trump's indictment in the Stormy Daniels case will backfire on Democrats, and they have hard proof right before their eyes -- the saga of Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky.

The 'Real Time' host made it clear ... although the Manhattan D.A. indicted Trump on falsifying campaign documents, it's really about having sex with a porn star and trying to cover it up, and that just doesn't land with most Americans.

So Bill took viewers down memory lane -- to the '90s -- when Clinton's affair with Lewinsky unraveled before the public. A special prosecutor had been looking for ANYTHING to nail Clinton, zeroing in on a land deal, but there was nothing.

So the special prosecutor pivoted to one Paula Jones, which eventually led to Lewinsky. Clinton was shamed, allegedly lied about it under oath and was ultimately impeached by the House.  And guess what happened in the end -- his approval rating soared to 73%!!!

As BM says in Trump's case ... "No matter what the underlying legalism, it's all about sex. Law is boring."

Bill thinks if Trump is indicted on the really serious, democracy-threatening matters -- like January 6th or election fraud -- it's not going to resonate as much with the public, because they'll have already seen Trump indicted on something else.

Food for thought.

Tommy Lee Posts Transphobic OAN Clip ... Getting Slammed Online


5:39 AM PT -- Tommy Lee pulled his post down, saying, "I deleted my 'controversial' post because I am in no way transphobic or agains the LGBTQ+ community or any f***ing community ... s**t, I'm the gayest motherf***er."

Tommy Lee is stirring up controversy on his social media page ... because he reposted a transphobic clip from far-right news network OAN.

The Mötley Crüe drummer posted the One America News Network clip on his official Instagram account Friday afternoon ... and it's being met with mixed reactions from celebs and Average Joes.


In the clip, OAN anchor Liz Wheeler is going on a rant about transgender, transracial and transabled people ... trying to get a rise out of folks with a segment light on facts and heavy on drama ... ticking off all the things she fantasizes could happen down the road.

Tommy added the caption, "Where does it end people?!?!"

The post quickly caught the attention of Questlove, who replied ... "Oan tho? #unfollow."

Tommy's friend, Criss Angel, rushed to his defense ... commenting, "100%."

The rest of the replies and comments are mostly from people condemning Tommy, but he does have some supporters out there.

OAN is known to stoke controversy ... and the network has been dropped by most major cable carriers in the United States.

But, it seems Tommy's still tuning in.

Coachella Big Names Light Up Neon Carnival ... Weekend's Biggest Party!!!

Cara Delevingne, Casey Affleck, and Camila Cabello are just some of the names set to show up and show out during Coachella weekend ... TMZ has learned.

Neon Carnival is no doubt THE place to be for people spending their weekend at the music festival. The highly-anticipated late-night party is going down Saturday at the famed Desert International  Horse Park.

Of course, this is the event that typically draws Hollywood's A-list every year. Party sources tell us Lil Nas X, Willow Smith, Nina Dobrev and Shaun White, Idris Elba, Delilah Belle, YG, and Gorillaz are confirmed to step out for the party's 12th year.

We're told influencers Dixie D'Amelio, Alix Earle, Lisa Rinna's model daughter Amelia Hamlin and singer Anderson .Paak are also expected to pull up to the party which is sponsored by Levi's and Tequila Don Julio.

DJ Ruckus will be spinning behind the booth for the party which always goes well into the early morning of Sunday.

Around 10,000 people showed up to last year's shindig and we're told event organizers are expecting even more this time around.

SB Champ Brian Mitchell Ex-Players Happy Snyder Sold Team ... 'Change Is Necessary'


Daniel Snyder needed to sell the Commanders ... so says the team's former star running back Brian Mitchell, who tells us former Washington players, him included, are thrilled the embroiled owner is finally selling the organization.

"When Dan [Snyder] came along, he had this mindset where, yeah, he needed us when he needed us, but he didn't want to have us around a lot," Brian, who was at a "Bye Dan" event celebrating the sale, told Babcock on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs weekdays on FS1).

Even more so than the former players, Mitchell, a former All-Pro, says Commanders fans wanted Synder out, adding he hasn't heard a single person voice support for the 58-year-old owner, which speaks volumes to how people feel about him.

"I think a lot of fans are happy because they just wanted to get rid of him," Mitchell said. "You get to a point where you just don't think you can have success with a certain person, and it got to that point."

The Super Bowl champion said Washington went from a storied franchise to the laughing stock of the NFL under Snyder's tutelage and felt "something needed to change" for the fans and players to have some pride in the team again.

Mitchell -- who spent ten seasons with Washington -- recalled how the organization painted him to be a problem child and never hesitated to let him go ... a standard BM feels should also be applied to ownership.

Of course, DS' reign was plagued by scandal ... that got so bad Congress opened an investigation into the inner workings of the org.

Synder purchased the franchise in 1999 (for less than $800 mil), but after 24 years and a massive $6.05 billion bid from an ownership group featuring NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, 76ers owner Josh Harris, and billionaire Mitchell Rales, Snyder's tenure is coming to an end.

As for what Mitchell wants to see from the new Commanders owners ... "I hope someone comes in and understands that the mindset has to be put back on the players and not necessarily everything outside of the players."
