Prince George's County Police

The guy who allegedly stabbed someone to death at a Popeyes on the East Coast has been ID'd by cops -- and now they're looking to bring him in on murder charges.

The Prince George's County Police Department in Maryland say they believe 30-year-old Ricoh McClain is the one responsible for the fatal stabbing that took place last week that left 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis dead after an in-line dispute escalated.

Cops say they were called in to respond to a fight, and when they arrived ... they discovered Davis in the restaurant's parking lot with a single stab wound that ultimately killed him.

Prince George's County Police

As for what exactly led up to the stabbing, cops say they believe Davis had cut in line ... which turned into a verbal dispute, and then into a physical altercation outside. Police say McClain fled from the area and has not been captured yet. A warrant for his arrest has been issued, and authorities there are asking anyone who knows his whereabouts to speak up.

Police have released a mug shot of McClain from a previous arrest, and they've also put out an image of him in the Popeyes that was captured on surveillance video.

He's facing several charges related to this -- 1st and 2nd-degree murder, assault and reckless endangerment. Cops consider him armed and dangerous.

Kylie Jenner Trespasser's Gonna Do Time in Lockup


The man who showed up at Kylie Jenner's house demanding to see her is going to be spending a lot of time in the big house -- he just got sentenced to a year behind bars.

The L.A. County Superior Court clerk tells TMZ ... Brandon Sevilla Martinez pled no contest to one misdemeanor count of trespass by driving on private property, and one felony count of bringing contraband into jail -- a glass pipe he had when he got busted.

Martinez will serve his sentence in L.A. County Jail.

TMZ broke the story ... Kylie got a temporary restraining order against Martinez last month after reporting he walked up her driveway and aggressively knocked on her door asking to see her. A security guard escorted him off the property and he was arrested.

We're told Martinez also got 3 years probation, and he has to stay at least 100 yards away from all parts of Hidden Hills -- the neighborhood where Kylie lives.

A hearing to extend the temporary restraining order is set for later this month.

Richard Branson's Virgin Fest Sued by Baby Bro Music Co. Sources Say It Was Headed for Disaster


1:15 PM PT -- Music industry sources tell TMZ KAABOO fell into a nearly impossible financial situation just days before the event and needed help. We're told KAABOO founders didn't even have enough cash to pay vendors and artists.

Our sources say in order to avoid a failure of "Fyre Festival proportions," organizers turned to Virgin's festival division who generously wrote a check for around $10 million ... we're told the lawsuit is a classic case of "no good deed goes unpunished."

Richard Branson's Virgin Fest company leeched onto one of its business partners in the music event world, taking 'em for everything they're worth ... such are the claims in a new lawsuit.

A music and entertainment company called KAABOO -- which puts on music festivals and other live events -- just filed suit against Branson's Virgin Fest co. and its subsidiaries, claiming Branson's lackeys there screwed KAABOO over big time with a pseudo coup of sorts that left the entertainment brand broke, desperate and holding the bag financially.

They attack Branson specifically, saying ... "Kaaboo fell victim to the culture spawned by Virgin founder Sir Richard Branson and practices by his Virgin Fest sycophants that treasured publicity, attention-grabbing headlines and greed above all else."

Here's the deal ... KAABOO says it recently partnered up with Virgin Fest -- a well-known company that puts on its own festivals, obviously -- but quickly learned VF was full of alleged back-stabbers that infiltrated their operation ... only to feed intel back to VF brass -- with the intent of completely taking over the KAABOO brand for pennies on the dollar.

KAABOO claims Branson had one of his guys, Jason Felts, sitting in KAABOO's board meetings, and when he heard they fell on hard times with money, allegedly reported back to his camp so VF could swoop in and basically buy them out.

The lawsuit describes Virgin Fest's alleged tactics as a "Trojan Horse strategy" that ultimately took control of the KAABOO's most valuable assets under false pretenses.

Adding insult to injury, KAABOO alleges Branson's company has violated several contracts they entered into with them and stiffed 'em on reimbursements for a recent festival they put on in San Diego. All in all, KAABOO says Virgin Fest has cost them HUNDREDS of millions.

They want damages -- lots of them -- and are demanding their case be heard before a jury trial. It should be noted ... Branson himself is NOT being sued.

YK Osiris I Didn't Choke or Bite My GF ... Just Ask the Witnesses!!!


YK Osiris vehemently denies allegations he choked and bit his girlfriend at his birthday party ... and the singer claims he has witnesses ready to testify on his behalf.

We broke the story ... Osiris was arrested last week in Atlanta on a felony charge of aggravated assault by strangulation after his GF told cops he choked her and bit her face at his September bday bash.

Sources close to YK tell TMZ ... the allegations made by his former flame are 100 percent false, and there was never any type of assault. We're told the singer has friends who were at the party and intend to come forward as witnesses to prove his innocence.

We're told Osiris is saying there's also physical evidence to prove he didn't assault the GF. As for why she made the allegations -- our sources say YK has no idea.

As we reported ... the woman told cops YK started beating the crap out of her after she confronted him over a picture she found on his phone allegedly showing another woman.

According to our sources, YK turned himself in to cops because he's confident he'll be cleared of any wrongdoing. We're told Osiris was released from the Fulton County Jail over the weekend.

YK’s attorney, Gabe Banks, tells us ... “YK Osiris maintains his innocence and looks forward to his day in court to defend against all of the allegations against him."

Amber Portwood Alleged Machete Incident on Audio ... Argument on Video

Without A Crystal Ball

10:11 AM PT -- A rep for Amber tells TMZ, "These recordings, obtained without Amber's knowledge and disseminated without her consent, serve as a painful reminder of a challenging and complicated time in her life she would like to move on from. Her full focus continues to remain on reaching a move favorable custody agreement for her son, James."

Amber Portwood alleged machete incident with her baby daddy was captured on audio -- and it's pretty terrifying to listen to, as Amber can apparently be heard hacking at a door.

Video and audio of the entire blowout between the "Teen Mom OG" star and Andrew Glennon from this past 4th of July has surfaced, and it gives you a sneak peek as to what led up to the alleged shoe throwing and machete wielding from Amber.

Without A Crystal Ball

Ring video that the family has set up in their home shows Andrew and Amber getting ready to head out with their 1-year-old son, James, to catch fireworks. But, the family has to turn around after leaving in their car due to a main road being closed ... which pissed off AP.

You can then hear Amber unloading on Andrew, telling him to STFU after he chastises her for being ill-prepared every 4th of July. The argument escalates after they head out in the car yet again, after which the family comes back to the house for a 2nd time.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department

This is where s*** kinda hits the fan ... as you can see and hear Amber threatens to toss a bunch of Andrew's stuff out on the street, and then you hear Andrew ask if she chugged a bunch of her meds in one sitting ... the implication being she's threatening to kill herself.

Without A Crystal Ball

At this point, Andrew gets behind a door -- supposedly while holding their son -- and you hear Amber demanding he open the door. Then comes the hacking -- 3 strikes, from what Andrew says is a machete. Amber seems to acknowledge it is, in fact, a machete.


As you know ... Amber copped a plea deal in the DV case -- pleading guilty to domestic battery and intimidation, this after initially denying any such machete attack.

She and Andrew are currently locked in a custody battle over the kid -- he wants to move to Malibu, but she's trying to prevent that by any means.

Cuba Gooding Jr. Girlfriend Flips Out on Him at Bar ... Removed by Security


9:23 AM PT -- A source close to the couple tells TMZ Claudine was upset about an incident from earlier in the night with a friend. We're told she was pissed because the friend showed up late to a dinner, and when she told Cuba about it, he took the friend's side. Cuba and Claudine are totally cool now, and it was just a silly argument.

Cuba Gooding Jr. got confronted in the club again -- only this time it was by his own girlfriend ... who freaked out on him during what we're told was her party.

CGJ was down in South Beach Saturday at Mango's Tropical Cafe, where sources tell us he was celebrating his GF's birthday. Her name's Claudine De Niro -- she's the same lady who was with him when he first got accused of groping a woman in NYC this past June.


In video obtained by TMZ, you can see Claudine talking to Cuba at the bar ... getting super close to his face and telling him something that seems to get her worked up.

While Cuba remained stoic in the convo ... Claudine lost her s*** and knocked over at least one shot glass from the bar. Then, she cleared the deck of whatever else was on there.

It's unclear what they were arguing over, but eyewitnesses tell us Claudine was removed from the bar after she got aggressive with security. As for Cuba's side of things ... his attorney, Mark Heller, tells us she got a "little overly playful" while partying with her beau.


As you know ... Cuba's been accused of sexual misconduct by several different women, for which he's now facing criminal charges relating to at least a few of them, and some incidents were even allegedly caught on camera. He's pled not guilty to all counts.

Chanel West Coast I Made Sharon Stone Relevant ... Why You Suing Me?!?


Chanel West Coast says Sharon Stone shouldn't be suing her for thrusting her back into pop culture again with a song that invoked her name ... instead, SS should thank her.

We got the rapper and MTV host Saturday in Sherman Oaks and asked about the lawsuit the iconic actress just filed again CWC this past week, alleging Chanel wrongly used her likeness and exploited her name in the 2018 song and music video, "Sharon Stoned."

Chanel says she's just as shocked by the legal action as most people were when they heard about it -- but her reasoning is a bit different. Basically, she feels totally back-stabbed.

According to Chanel, Sharon was aware of the song and the effort to involve her in the video -- which apparently involved reps and managers going back and forth for a while, according to CWC anyway. Then, on the day of the shoot ... Chanel says Sharon did a full 180.

She claims Sharon's rep called her manager hours before filming was set to begin, allegedly telling them Sharon liked the idea and wanted to be in the video as well. Sometime later -- on the same day, it seems -- Chanel says Sharon suddenly backed out ... no clue as to why.

Now, Chanel's calling BS on the lawsuit -- saying she was simply paying homage to someone she considers a hero ... something tons of hip-hop artists do, as she rightly points out.

Then comes what may or may not be a little shade ... CWC says she made young people aware of who Sharon Stone is, and as a result ... kinda made her relevant once more.

She might have a point -- Sharon's heyday was in the '90s, no doubt. BUUUUTTTT, then again ... who could ever forget this legendary NSFW movie moment? Kids these days!

A$AP Rocky Returning to Sweden for Show ... Months After Being Jailed There

Breaking News
TMZ/Getty Composite

A$AP Rocky is heading back to the danger zone -- aka, Sweden, where he was jailed and convicted of assault over the summer.

The rapper's set to return to Stockholm, Sweden on December 11 for a show at the Ericsson Globe that will include other Swedish artists, yet to be announced.

In a statement released Friday, LiveNation says about Rocky ... "After tremendous support from the Swedish fans, he returns to Stockholm for a long-awaited gig for all his supporters."

Tickets apparently go on sale on November 12.

As you'll recall ... A$AP was found guilty of assault by a panel of Swedish judges in August, but he did not have to go to prison.


The judges determined the case -- which hinged on whether A$AP threw a bottle at the victim during the all-out brawl in late June -- did not warrant self-defense ... despite video showing the victim was antagonizing his crew.


Despite the guilty verdict, the judges felt Rocky and his codefendants got ample punishment with the month they served in a Swedish jail as they awaited trial. So instead, Rocky got a suspended sentence ... meaning he just had to pay various fines and fees.

The Swedish prosecutor who worked on the case tells us ... A$AP has NO restrictions on him related to the assault conviction. We're told ... "He can return to Sweden for his gig and won't be arrested unless he commits another crime."

What's interesting ... after Rocky was released and returned to the States to await his verdict, our sources said he planned on NEVER going back to the country. It's unclear what changed his mind, especially in such a short time.

UFC's Walt Harris Stepdaughter's Kidnapping Suspect Arrested

Breaking News

The man officials believe kidnapped the stepdaughter of UFC fighter Walt Harris has been arrested -- and you can see in the mug shot, the dude's eye is swollen shut.

Cops had been on the hunt for 30-year-old Ibraheem Yazeed -- who was spotted at a Chevron station in Auburn, Alabama on Oct. 23, the last time anyone saw 19-year-old Aniah Blanchard.


Now, officials say ... Yazeed was apprehended by U.S. Marshals in Escambia County (western Florida) early Friday morning after a brief foot pursuit. He was booked at 2:32 AM.

You can see the suspect's left eye is jacked up bad -- he was hospitalized after being arrested.

Officials believe Yazeed is a bad dude -- he's awaiting trial in an unrelated kidnapping, robbery and attempted murder in Montgomery involving a 77-year-old man.

Auburn Police

Aniah's stepmother, Yashiba Blanchard, issued a statement after Yazeed's arrest -- saying, "I  am relieved that we can finally obtain some answers and locate our daughter."

"I am prayerful that the Lord touches this young man’s heart so he will be honest and truthful and tell the authorities where our daughter is located."

"I feel as if the Lord has heard our cries and the community’s cries for help with finding our daughter. We are continue to put our trust in God and pray that Chief Register and the APD with other law enforcement bring us Aniah and justice."

Chris Brown Claims L.A. Officials Harassed Him Over Yard Sale


Chris Brown got the kind of attention from L.A. cops and city officials that someone gets when they commit a really serious crime ... thing is, all he was doing was holding a yard sale.

TMZ has learned, a swarm of authorities visited Chris' San Fernando Valley property Tuesday ... the day before he held his yard sale at his home.

We're told at 9:30 PM Tuesday, a Code Enforcement officer from the L.A. Dept. of Building and Safety went to Chris' home to inform him someone had filed a complaint. We spoke with a Building and Safety official and asked what kind of complaint would someone make when the yard sale was hours away from even getting started.


We're told the person who filed the complaint claimed Chris was bringing stuff onto the property he was going to sell, but that just wasn't true. It was all his stuff ... stuff that was inside his home.

Here's the thing ... the officer was there for a full hour and a half. WHY? Well, the Building and Safety official told us they had to go over rules with Chris on how to throw a garage sale, and what he was and wasn't allowed to do. The official said the Code Enforcement officer had to wait a while until one of Chris' reps showed up, but he couldn't say what specifically was discussed and why it took so long. But, he denies it was harassment.

But, there's more. Sources connected to Chris tell TMZ, an LAPD officer went out during the day on Tuesday and told Chris' people they couldn't have a yard sale because he didn't have the proper permit. But, that's just dead wrong, because in the City of L.A. you don't need a permit to throw a yard sale.

KTTV Fox 11

An LAPD official tells us his officers did NOT tell Chris' people they needed a permit. They say it was someone from Building and Safety who said that. But, the Building and Safety official scoffed at this, telling us they were NOT the ones who mentioned a permit.

Our Chris sources say there were multiple visits by authorities and they believe the authorities were trying to kill the yard sale, even though it was perfectly legal.

Breaking News
TMZ/Getty Composite

Kevin O'Leary and his wife are being sued by the family of one of the victims in the deadly boat crash.

Rosa and Antonio Ragone are suing on behalf of their deceased daughter, Susanne Brito ... with their attorney, Patrick Brown, saying, "For this grieving family, it is about obtaining civil justice so as to prevent these types of deaths and curtailing reckless and dangerous behavior from continuing on our lakes."

We broke the story ... Kevin's wife, Linda, was driving their boat on a lake in Ontario, Canada back in August around 11:30 PM, when it rammed into another boat, killing 2 onboard that boat. Canadian authorities have charged Linda with careless operation of a vessel -- we're told they felt she was going too fast -- something her lawyer strongly denies. The driver of the other boat was charged with driving a boat without navigation lights.

The driver of the other boat is also being sued.

Rosa Ragone said, "Our family has lost a beautiful, loving person. We are devastated. We sincerely hope that through this process, that justice is served and that steps are taken so that innocent victims like Suzie are not seriously injured and killed and that other families do not have to go through such pain and loss."

Getty Composite

Ellen DeGeneres and Sandra Bullock have joined forces to sue various companies that are marketing beauty and anti-aging products ... claiming they made false representations the 2 entertainers were endorsing the stuff the companies were selling.

Ellen and Sandra claim some of the companies used photos of Sandra on Ellen's show. The companies falsely claimed Sandra was boasting about her "amazing new skin" ... which the company credits to their products.

The company also posted a pic of Ellen falsely claiming the reason she doesn't need a lot of makeup is because she uses the company's serum.

In other words ... not only are Ellen and Sandra saying the companies used their names and likenesses without permission ... they just made all this stuff up.

According to the lawsuit, several different beauty companies used the photos to hawk their products ... without permission from Ellen or Sandra.

The products in question ... Alessa Serum, Elliesse Serum, Lavish Skin Care, Life Cell Skin Care, Glovella and many others.

Ellen and Sandra want profits the companies have made off their names. They also want a judge to order the companies to stop using Ellen and Sandra's names and likenesses.

Chris Brown Yard Sale Attracts Crowds Cops Tried Shutting it Down

Exclusive Details

1:05 PM PT -- The line to CB's yard sale has grown exponentially ... and based on a couple of shoppers, it appears waiting in the massive line's worth it. One guy said he spent nearly $500 on vintage items. He said Chris is NOT at the yard sale. Another shopper said he also spent around $500, claiming his haul is probably worth around $3k after buying vintage shoes worth a ton.


BTW ... one of the shoppers tells us they're serving free ice cream too.

Chris Brown is having a massive yard sale in front of his house, to which he's invited the public, much to the chagrin of the LAPD ... and we've learned cops tried shutting it down using a law that doesn't exist.

KTTV Fox 11

The singer posted up his personal address in Tarzana, CA on Tuesday, announcing that he'd be selling off marked-down designer items -- some of which, presumably, belong to him personally. Well, cops caught wind of this and paid Chris a visit in an attempt to torpedo the event -- but they weren't successful in doing so ... 'cause Chris is still operating legally.

Sources close to Chris tell TMZ that an LAPD officer went to his home Tuesday telling his people they couldn't have a garage sale because they don't have a permit. Chris' lawyer got involved ... they called BS, and rightly so. Permits are not required in the City of L.A. where Chris lives.


Sources connected to Chris say they kept getting harassed. They say cops then tried to shut down the garage sale because of fear the crowds would be too large. But, so far there are only a few dozen people.


Thing is ... sources on the ground are telling us that things were chill Tuesday night, are still cool hours ahead of Chris opening the doors at 10 AM PT Wednesday. We're told that his team has announced they're letting folks in 10 at a time -- and there's already about 3 dozen heads lining the block, with about 6 or so police cruisers driving around patrolling.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... they were concerned about "the impact [of the garage sale] on the community" and "the safety of the people who are there."

Jenelle Evans is afraid for her life and the lives of her kids ... and that's because she says her estranged husband, David Eason, is off-the-rails violent.

Jenelle got a restraining order against David, claiming flatly, "Because of his recent threats, his history of violence, his erratic behavior and his large stockpile of weapons, I am scared for my life and my children's well-being."

Jenelle says David has physically and verbally abused her. She acknowledges what David belatedly acknowledged ... that he shot and killed the family dog after the animal nipped at their 2-year-old daughter.

As for the verbal abuse, Jenelle claims David said, "You can die for all I care. You're a piece of s**t. Biggest piece of s**t I've ever seen."

She also claims David insinuated he was going to kill himself if she didn't get back with him.

Under the temporary restraining order, obtained by E!, David is prohibited from having contact with Jenelle or her children.

'RHOC' Star Lauri Peterson's Son Jail Guards Lied About Attack!!! I Didn't Give 'Em a Pass


Lauri Peterson's son, Josh Waring, says an Orange County Jail guard is flat-out lying about Josh's reaction to getting slashed by an inmate ... to cover up a screw-up on the jail's part.

TMZ obtained the criminal report filed for Josh's crazy jailhouse brawl from last month and in it, one of the correctional officers involved claims Josh said right afterward he knew the guards didn't set him up ... or allow the attack to go down on purpose.

Per the deputy's account, he says he asked Josh immediately after breaking up his fight with a razor-wielding prisoner if he knew what happened back there.


According to the report, Josh said, "Oh, I know you guys didn't do that on purpose." Josh also allegedly told the corrections officer he didn't wanna press charges against the slasher. He allegedly explained the guy was in a gang that didn't like him because he's in the protective custody section of the jail.

Josh and his attorney, Joel Garson, are calling BS, telling TMZ ... Josh denies EVER saying anything remotely like that. As for why the guard would fabricate a comment from Josh? Garson calls it a "cover your ass" statement.

When TMZ broke the story of Josh's attack, Garson told us he believes guards showed a blatant disregard for protocol because Josh's attacker shouldn't have been out of his cell at that time.


We know what you're thinking -- there's gotta be video of the guard questioning Josh to clear up the dispute. No dice! The jail tells us their corrections officers don't wear bodycams.

However, Garson tells us he plans to question the deputy under oath during a hearing this week. As we reported, Josh is in the middle of a federal lawsuit he's filed against Orange County and its Sheriff's Department.

We've called the Sheriff's Dept. for comment ... but no word back yet.

Megan Thee Stallion My Makeup Artist Has Loose Lips ... I Might Have to Sue!!!


Megan Thee Stallion's taking the beef with her makeup artist to the next level -- she's threatening a lawsuit if the guy doesn't shut the hell up on social media!!!

The "Hot Girl Summer" rapper's lawyer, Dina LaPolt, fired off a cease and desist letter -- obtained by TMZ -- to Megan's makeup artist, Akil McCoy ... claiming he's violating his nondisclosure agreement by talking about his work with her.

The beef started when Akil called BS on Megan telling Vogue she did her own makeup. Akil blasted MTS on social media, commenting on her IG page. Her lawyers say that's a big no-no and he knows it.

In the letter/legal threat, Megan's team demands Akil delete his IG comment and stop blabbing about their professional relationship -- even if he's saying something positive.

Megan means business ... she says the next step is taking Akil to court, if he doesn't zip it.
