Mama June

She Won't Get Paid in Full

But Kids Will

11/1/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1024-shannon-thompson-family-tlc-getty-01Mama June is not going to get her full salary from TLC for the un-aired season, because TLC squarely put the blame on her for the show's cancellation.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... TLC's biggest concern is the welfare of Honey Boo Boo and the other kids and show execs are deeply concerned and upset that June has put them at risk by dating convicted child molester Mark McDaniel.

The network does not believe June deserves full payment, so they have deducted a significant amount from what she would have gotten if the show aired.

As for the kids ... we're told they will ALL be paid in full.

Ditto Sugar Bear, who will also get his due. And Uncle Poodle has already received his loot.

Our sources say TLC is hanging its hat on a morals clause in her contract -- and cavorting with the guy who molested one of her daughters ... well, it seems to qualify.

Cops Warning Vegas Strip Clubs

Don't Let Him In!

EXCLUSIVE

Las Vegas strip clubs are getting a stern warning from cops -- DON'T LET FLOYD MAYWEATHER INSIDE ... because he sexually harasses strippers ... something Floyd denies.

TMZ Sports has learned ... the Vice unit of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department contacted multiple strip clubs in Sin City ... telling them Floyd and his crew have run roughshod in various clubs, manhandling the girls.

As one law enforcement source put it, "He [Floyd] goes in and pulls a 'Do you know who I am' and does inappropriate things with some of the women."

We spoke with honchos from multiple strip clubs who tell us they will NOT heed the warnings, because they've never had a problem with Floyd. Plus, everyone knows he spends a TON of cash.

Sources close to Floyd tell us the boxer is adamant he has NEVER done anything wrong at a strip club -- particularly with women -- and has no idea why cops would have him in their crosshairs.

Kanye West

Dope Sweatshirt Sells Out After Pap Photo

can move product ... and he proved that with a single push of a button Thursday ... and a marijuana-fueled clothing company is reaping the benefits.

The always fashion-conscious Yeezus became a Pied Piper of sorts with the pic he snapped of a pap wearing a sweet sweaty. The manufacturer -- D9 Reserve -- instantly sold out ... more than 300 sweatshirts at $135 a pop. That's a cool $40K.

D9 is big in the weed scene, promoting pot in its fashions.  

As for the sweatshirt, the company does not plan to restock, which will make the 300 instant classics.

'Star Trek' Actress

Companion Busted at LAX

In Meth Suitcase Blunder

EXCLUSIVE

Nichelle Nichols
, who played Uhura in the 60's TV version of "Star Trek," did better on spaceships than planes because her travelling companion was busted at LAX after meth fell out of his suitcase ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned the 81-year-old actress was with a male companion in his 20's at the American Airlines terminal. We're told he had attached his luggage to hers and her name tags were on his bags.

Here's the rub. Law enforcement sources tell us, his suitcase fell to the ground, opened and a bag of meth and drug scales spilled out.

The guy was arrested for drug possession. The unsuspecting Nichols was in the clear and allowed to make her flight.

Nichols rep tells TMZ ... the companion is her assistant and all cops found was an e-cigarette.  Our law enforcement sources beg to differ ... they say they found meth.

EXCLUSIVE

Hollywood Hillbillies Mama June ScandalThe women of "Hollywood Hillbillies" are standing firmly behind Mama June ... saying she's a good mother ... but the men on the show say June's a crappy mom.

Our photog got the cast as they headed into House of Pies in Los Feliz ... and there was a clear gender divide over the Boo Boo situation.

Mema was quick to defend Mama June ... but Michael (aka "The Angry Ginger") seriously bashed her.

Which hicks take the cake ... and the pie? You decide.

Amanda Bynes

Shut Down in Court

The Conservatorship Stands

10/31/2014 2:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1008-amanda-bynes-tmz4-3
Amanda Bynes
just got shut down in court ... and her parents' conservatorship is still in place. The problem is ... they can't control her.

Amanda said she was going to Ventura Court Friday to wage legal war to end the conservatorship ... but the last we saw of her was in Hollywood during lunchtime where she was munching on watermelon.

A lawyer claiming to rep Amanda showed up, but the judge ruled she could not hire him because under the conservatorship she lacked capacity to enter into a binding contract. So the hearing ended even before it began, and the conservatorship stays in place.

Here's the problem. Amanda is roaming the streets of Hollywood and clearly delusional. She has intense dislike for her parents, so they can't control or influence her conduct.  It seems it's only a matter of time before she hurts herself or others.   

A desperate situation.

Common caught some of Daniel Radcliffe rapping on 'Jimmy Fallon' the other night ... and gave us his honest review. But that wasn't enough to distract some people from something else -- Common's severe lack-of-Serena-ness.

Yes, sometimes break-ups (even ancient ones) can be really hard on total strangers.

Johnny Manziel

Curses Out Referee

At Cavaliers Game

10/31/2014 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



****** WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE ******

Johnny Manziel
 went on a cursing rant an NBA referee during LeBron James' homecoming game in Cleveland last night ... and his rage was captured on video.

Johnny "Football" was pissed off after what he clearly felt was a BAD call, and repeatedly yelled -- from his court side seat -- "Bulls**t" and "F**k" ... for a solid minute. 

Here's the question though -- is Manziel really that passionate about Cavaliers hoops ... or does the Browns backup QB just want Cleveland fans to THINK he loves 'em that much?

Amanda Bynes
's lawyer started without her ... showing up in court at 1:30 PM Friday and making a beeline into the judge's chambers trying to free his client of her parents' conservatorship.

Amanda's parents showed up. Our sources say they will say little if anything. This is Amanda's hearing to convince the judge she's stable enough to live on her own.

Amanda didn't show up on time ... she was otherwise occupied eating watermelon in Hollywood less than an hour before the hearing started in Ventura County.

TMZ broke the story ... Bynes was released Thursday from the psychiatric facility where she had been held for more than two weeks. A judge overruled the doctors and felt she should NOT be held against her will.

But in the hours since her release, Amanda has resumed her bizarre conduct ... wandering the Sunset Strip and throwing a fit when she couldn't get a hotel room ... then unleashing one of her trademark Twitter rants

We're in court, so stay tuned.
