Filed under: Sly Stone, Michael Jackson, Katherine Jackson


Sly Stone — ex-frontman of the ’70s funk band Sly & the Family Stone — is admitting he still abuses cocaine and alcohol … but the 68-year-old singer insists he WANTS to clean himself up.

Stone — who’s currently living in a van in L.A. — spoke candidly about his substance abuse issues yesterday, insisting he hasn’t used drugs or taken a sip of alcohol in “a week and a half.”

A discombobulated Stone claims he’s chosen a rehab center — and insists he’s serious about it … saying, “I will be there.”



Michael Jackson’s Son Prince: I’ll Testify … With Strings Attached

Michael Jackson
‘s eldest son Prince — an eyewitness to the horrific scene in the bedroom where his father lost his life — does not want to testify in the Conrad Murray trial, but he’s telling family he’ll do what needs to be done to get justice for his departed dad.

Sources close to Prince tell TMZ … the 14-year-old is “nervous” and worried that if he’s called to the stand he might get flustered and “mess up.” 

We’re told if Prince is called by prosecutors … Katherine will ask her lawyers to request that the entire courtroom be cleared during his testimony.  Judge Michael Pastor almost certainly will prohibit the media from training a camera on Prince, but it’s unlikely he’ll clear the courtroom.

As we previously reported, Prince is on the prosecution’s witness list, since Dr. Murray summoned Prince to the bedroom for help during the emergency.  When Prince arrived, he dissolved into tears.

The trial starts today.  We’ll be livestreaming opening statements.

Filed under: Jamie Kennedy, Celebrity Justice, Exclusive


LAPD officers rolled to Jamie Kennedy‘s L.A. area home early this morning — after the actor and his girlfriend allegedly got into a shouting match that was so loud … it woke the neighbors.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … someone in the neighborhood called police around 3 AM, after hearing yelling and screaming from inside the actor’s house.

When cops arrived to the scene, we’re told Jamie and a female were arguing in the middle of the street — so cops broke it up.
After talking to both parties, cops decided Jamie had not committed a crime — but the girl was eventually arrested for being drunk in public.

Calls to Jamie’s rep have not been returned.



Chuck Lorre — Another Shot at Charlie Sheen

Filed under: Charlie Sheen, Chuck Lorre, TV


Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre seems to be pretty pissed off about Charlie Sheen‘s plan to pen a tell-all book … and last night, Lorre once again used a “Vanity Card” to rip the Warlock.

The Vanity Card — a slate written by Lorre — appeared on screen at the end of “Men” … which now features Sheen’s replacement Ashton Kutcher in the lead role.

Lorre never mentions Sheen by name — but it’s pretty clear he’s talking about his former sitcom star when he wrote, “Sometime last year I realized I had become the unwilling contestant in a
reality show. I didn’t understand the rules, wasn’t sure if there even
were any, and pretty much hated every second of it.”

He added, “Somewhere along the way, something inside me died. Anyway, now, suddenly, I’m being told that the reality show’s been cancelled.”

“There’s just one problem. That thing inside me that died? It walks at night. It’s angry. It’s hungry. And worst of all … it’s writing a tell-all book.”

As TMZ previously reported, Sheen was shopping around for a book deal earlier this year — hoping to score $10 million. No word if he ever inked a deal.
