Lori Harvey Cited for Hit and Run, Released On-Site

BEVERLY HILS (TMZ) — Lori Harvey — Steve Harvey‘s daughter — allegedly smashed into another car and attempted to flee the scene, but cops nabbed her.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Lori was cited Sunday night for misdemeanor hit and run and delaying a police investigation in Bev Hills. Our sources say witnesses told responding officers they saw Lori texting and driving when she slammed into a Prius and tipped over her Mercedes G-Wagon on its side. Doesn’t sound like anyone was injured.

We’re told cops quickly showed up on the scene, and found Lori a short distance away … walking down the street. Our sources say she even FaceTimed her dad, Steve, at one point while dealing with officers.

We’re told Lori was not taken into custody — she got a ticket for the offenses and was free to go. Cops say alcohol was not a factor.

Hours earlier, Lori posted videos at Nobu in Malibu. All of this, of course, follows rumors that she and Diddy recently split, after folks noticed she stopped following him on IG.

Rapper Pop Smoke Dead, Murdered in Home Invasion Robbery

HOLLYWOOD HILLS (TMZ) — Pop Smoke, an up and coming rapper, was shot and killed Wednesday morning in what appears to be a home invasion robbery … TMZ has learned.

The rapper was at a home in the Hollywood Hills at around 4:30 AM when 2 men wearing hoodies and masks broke into a house … this according to law enforcement sources. We’re told the 2 men fired multiple shots, striking and critically wounding Pop Smoke. The men were seen fleeing on foot.

ATTEMPTING CPR

Pop Smoke was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood where he was pronounced dead.

The suspects have not been caught and as far as we know they have not been identified. It’s unclear if Pop Smoke knew the shooters. One man was placed in handcuffs but cops determined he was not involved and was released.

Pop Smoke released an album back in July and one of the songs, “Welcome to the Party,” blew up … it was considered by many the song of the summer. Nicki Minaj did a remix of the song a few months later. He also did a song, “Gatti,” with Travis Scott.

We got Pop Smoke out at LAX back in July, and he told us about a hoop dream that came true.

Pop Smoke was 20.

RIP

NFL Player Julian Edelman Arrested for Jumping on Car in Beverly Hills

Julian Edelman Arrested for Vandalism After Jumping on Car

BEVERLY HILLS (TMZ) — New England Patriots star Julian Edelman was arrested Saturday night after allegedly jumping on the hood of someone’s Mercedes … TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us it went down this way … Julian was in Bev Hills walking around at about 9 PM when for some unknown reason he hopped up on the car, causing damage.

Impressive, considering the 33-year-old reportedly needs surgery on his left knee during the offseason.

The bad news for Julian … cops were in the area working a robbery case when someone flagged them down and gave them the lowdown.

Edelman was arrested, cited for misdemeanor vandalism and released. He left with his friends.

Our law enforcement sources say it was apparent to them Julian had been drinking … which might explain a lot about the incident.

The L.A. County D.A. will decide whether to file charges … it’s possible — very possible — this case goes nowhere if he squares up with the car owner, but we’ll see.

Of course, Edelman was only in Beverly Hills in the first place because the Patriots didn’t make it to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs.

They were knocked out last week by the Tennessee Titans, which beat the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday night.

We reached out to Julian’s rep … so far, no word back.

Harvey Weinstein Defense Strategy — Accusers Didn’t Break Contact with Me

Harvey Weinstein Defense Strategy -- Accusers Didn't Break Contact with Me

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Harvey Weinstein will be on trial for sexual assault, and as fierce as the prosecutor has been … Weinstein’s lawyers have their counterattack planned.

Weinstein’s lead attorney, Donna Rotunno, tells TMZ, the defense will attempt to pick apart the testimony of the alleged victims by making what she calls a “common sense” argument — that people who get assaulted don’t maintain contact with the perpetrator.

Rotunno says she has text messages and proof of subsequent interactions that support their position.

We know prosecutors will call a psychiatrist who will testify that it’s common for sexual assault victims to delay in reporting the crime and they will often continue to interact with their assailant.

As we reported, a lead detective in the case advised one of the initial accusers to delete information from her phone — information that helped Weinstein. Prosecutors decided to drop that accuser from the case to avoid credibility issues with the jury.

The defense has subpoenaed that cop, but a decision has not been made on whether to call him to testify. On the one hand, the defense doesn’t want to tell jurors there was a third accuser. But, on the other hand, the dirty cop does raise credibility issues with the investigation.

Rotunno also says she has also subpoenaed other witnesses who will testify about the relationships between Weinstein and his 2 accusers … the way they interacted, how frequently, etc.

As for picking a jury, Rotunno says women can be fair and impartial and she is not automatically excluding them. She believes some women feel the pendulum has swung too far in one direction with regard to the #MeToo movement.

Rotunno won’t say if Weinstein would testify, but it would be shocking if he does.
