Sage Stallone : Cause of Death ...Heart Attack

Sage Stallone's cause of death has been the subject of scrutiny and investigation since he was found dead in his home on July 13, but now TMZ has obtained the L.A. County Coroner's report which states the 36-year-old actor died from a heart attack.

Coroner Chief Craig Harvey told the Los Angeles Times that Stallone died of natural causes and the toxicology test came back "negative except for a sub-therapeutic level of hydrocodone," -- though the drug played no role in his death.

According to Harvey, Sage was a heavy smoker and the habit likely helped contribute to his death, as smoking is one of the chief causes of heart disease due to elevated blood pressure, increasing the risk of clots.

In the days following his death, it had been reported that Stallone likely died of a drug overdose, with TMZ reporting that the actor and producer lived like a hermit in the weeks leading up to his death, and claiming his room was filled with empty beer cans and more than "60 gigantic empty prescription bottles," including a prescription for hydrocodone -- generic Vicodin.

Those reports were vehemently contested by Sage's lawyer and longtime friend George Braunstein, who claimed that Sage was happy and planning to marry his girlfriend shortly brfoed he died . Most pointedly, Braunstein pointed out that his client didn't even drink.

With so much speculation surrounding Sage's death, his father, Sylvester Stallone, made plea to be left alone to grieve in peace .

"This agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives. Sage is our first child and the center of our universe and I am humbly begging for all to have my son's memory and soul left in peace," the 66-year-old actor said in a statement.

Sage was laid to rest on July 21 .The private memorial took place at the St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church in Brentwood, with the elder Stallone, wife Jennifer Flavin and brother Frank Stallone present.

Tony Scott : Cause of Death Not Officially Suicide ...YET

Although it seems pretty obvious... authorities are hesitant to call Tony Scott's death a "suicide" ... at least while they wait for toxicology and other test results -- this according to the "Top Gun" director's death certificate.

The document -- obtained by TMZ -- lists the director's immediate cause of death as "deferred." The manner of death is listed as "pending investigation." The doc also states that an autopsy has been performed.

As for the location of death, the certificate states, "Under Vincent Thomas Bridge."

The cert describes Scott as a film director who has worked in the movie industry for 43 years.

Tony's official cause of death is expected within the next few weeks

Clint Eastwood : Reality Show Did Not Set Up Obama Schtick

Clint Eastwood was NOT put up to his painful Barack Obama schtick last night by the producers of his family's reality show -- in fact, sources close to the legend tell TMZ, Clint "acts that way all the time at home."

There's been a lot of speculation -- Clint's bit was so awful ... there's no way it wasn't a setup for reality TV ... but we're told it really wasn't. The whole thing was Clint's idea, and even his family had no clue what he planned to do on stage.

According to sources, Clint's family's reality show "Mrs. Eastwood & Company" has not officially been picked up for a 2nd season and they're not currently in production -- so there's no way producers could have had a hand in last night's trainwreck.

We’re told Clint's family believes his speech was widely misunderstood -- Clint just has a dry sense of humor that people don't understand.

Lindsay Lohan : Unpaid Hotel Bill Not My Problem

Lindsay Lohan's passing the buck -- telling friends she thought the producers behind her recent Liz Taylor movie were going to pay her $46,350 hotel bill ... which is why she never offered to cover the tab.

Sources close to the actress tell TMZ, Lindsay claims producers agreed to cover her stay at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont while she filmed "Liz & Dick" earlier this summer -- so she was shocked to learn there was an outstanding 5-figure bill in her name ... and even more shocked when she was banned from the hotel when the bill went unpaid.

We're told Lindsay is currently trying to sort the problem out with producers -- and if they refuse to pay, Lindsay will happily cover the tab.

We reached out to Lifetime for comment -- so far, no word back.

Charlie Sheen : I Have Lot's of 'Anger' Feft in Me

Charlie Sheen just hit the jackpot with "Anger Management" -- and now he could earn more jack than he made on "Two and a Half Men." You want numbers -- our sources connected to the production say NORTH OF $100 MILLION!!!!

The show was just picked up for 90 additional episodes, and sources tell us ... Charlie has a huge piece of the profits.

FX made a commitment -- if the first 10 episodes hit a certain number, the network would green light the additional 90 shows. Fact is ... the show exceeded the threshold rating with an average of 4.53 million viewers.

What's interesting ... the deal was structured so Charlie will be working non-stop for the next 2 years, and Network suits wanted it that way so Charlie didn't have a lot of free time to get into trouble.

Lindsay Lohan : Suspect in Jewelry Heist "WTF"

Lindsay Lohan is now formally a suspect in the theft of $100,000 worth of watches and sunglasses ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

As TMZ first reported, Lindsay was at the Hollywood Hills home of Sam Magid a week ago when Sam called the LAPD and reported a jewelry theft. We're told Lindsay has been at the house frequently, including at an all-night house party a week ago Sunday.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Lindsay and her assistant Gavin Doyle are both suspects in the theft.

Now here's the twist ... We're told Sam has recanted his story and now says nothing was stolen. But our sources say cops are not closing out the investigation because they believe they have independent witnesses who can finger Lindsay and Gavin as the thieves.

Sources tell us ... LAPD detectives contacted the lawyer for Lindsay and Gavin today, asking for an interview with the two suspects but the lawyer rejected the request.

It's unclear why Sam -- who is insanely wealthy -- suddenly changed his tune.

One final thing ... This is really bad news for Lindsay, because she's on probation for the theft case involving the necklace at a Venice jewelry store. She could go to jail if she violates probation by stealing more jewelry.
