Jeremy Meeks No Dreamy Shoots With McMug Shot

8/22/2016 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-jeremy-meek-anwar-hadid-instagram-01Bella and Gigi Hadid's little bro is NOT teaming up with an ex-con -- no matter how much of a handsome bastard the guy is.

Jeremy Meeks -- the former Cali state prisoner known as Dreamy McMug Shot -- posted a pic with Anwar Hadid ... which became a thing on the Internet, and started rumors the guys were doing a modeling shoot together.

Sources close to Anwar tell us he and Jeremy were introduced in Bev Hills last week, and Jeremy asked for a pic because he's a fan. Anwar obliged because he's a nice guy. 

Jeremy's no dummy though -- he's trying to make it big in modeling, which is probably why he didn't caption the photo.

Never hurts to be Hadid-adjacent.

8/22/2016 4:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mickey Rourke says he's done messing around -- and vows to bash Lenny Dykstra's face in the next time he seem him ... and he's DEAD. SERIOUS. 

Remember, Rourke initially called Dykstra out after the ex-MLB star went on Howard Stern and claimed Mickey owes him $30k from back in the day ... insinuating it was drug related. 

Dykstra fired back -- saying Mickey's face was an insult to the facelift industry

Now, Rourke has apparently had enough -- and in one of the most rage-filled, angry rants we've ever seen ... the actor swears on everything he loves that he will "knock all his f***ing teeth out again."

Dykstra ... don't say we didn't warn ya ...

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 ...
