Donald Trump's Star Vandal Arrested

10/27/2016 7:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027-james-otis-Facebook-trump-star-01The guy who destroyed Donald Trump's Walk of Fame star got busted by cops Thursday morning.

LAPD tracked down James Otis in West Hollywood as he was leaving a home, and took him into custody. We're told he was cooperative as officers arrested him for felony vandalism.

Otis was planning to hold a news conference in a few hours ... then turn himself in to cops, but LAPD clearly wasn't down for his dog and pony show.

As we reported ... Otis took a pickax to Trump's star early Wednesday. He came on "TMZ Live" a few hours later to confess and explain why he had it out for the GOP candidate. 

Sia 'Naked and Afraid' Star Horsing Around for 'Cheap Thrills'

10/27/2016 9:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sia and Halloween make grown men and mini horses do weird things.  

"Naked and Afraid XL" star Jake Nodar recreated Sia's "Cheap Thrills" video with his 6-year-old stallion, Tyrion, after seeing her in concert inspired him to dress up as one of Sia's dancers for Halloween.

Jake, who's a horse trainer by day, admits Tyrion is a bit of an attention whore ... and sure enough he busted out some killer dance moves in the vid. It's debatable which of them has better bangs.

Sia's a huge animal lover so we're guessing she'll love this kinda horseplay.


Kim Kardashian Concierge in Robbery ... Something's Hinky

10/27/2016 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Kim Kardashian's concierge has told a story fundamentally different from the one Kim told cops ... raising the question, what really happened when the Paris robbery went down?

The concierge -- who was taken to Kim's apartment during the robbery -- appeared on "Entertainment Tonight" and said the robbers never asked for her ring or jewelry. Concierge Abdulrahman says the robbers kept asking for "l'argent" ... French for money, and Kim thought they wanted the ring.

But as TMZ reported, we know Kim was very specific with Paris cops, telling them the robber spoke French with one exception ... they repeatedly demanded "ring, ring."  


Furthermore, Kim's lawyer, Marty Singer, wrote a letter to a Huffington Post blogger, demanding a retraction for a story saying the robbery was a hoax, saying in part, the robbers "demanded her money and jewelry."

The concierge has been shopping his story for thousands of dollars ... a story that doesn't match Kim's.

Mariah Carey, James Packer Done for Now ... Maybe for Good

Exclusive Details

1026-mariah-carey-james-packer-tmz-04Mariah Carey and James Packer have called it quits, but from what we're hearing the door is not completely shut ... yet.

Sources connected with Mariah's reality show tell TMZ, the show has been chronicling the relationship, which has been plagued with "issues" between the 2.

Our sources say what may have been the deal breaker for Packer came when she had some sort of rendezvous with one of the dancers in her Vegas show ... something that is on video for the reality show.

We're told James hated the reality show from the get-go and it became a major source of conflict.

Women's Day in Australia is reporting James dumped Mariah in part over her "extravagant spending."

It sure seemed like something was amiss over the weekend when Nick Cannon showed up for Mariah's Halloween party but Packer was a no-show. They said it was because Halloween parties were not his thing ... it's possible neither is Mariah anymore.



Donald Trump Get Real, Haters ... Hillary WEnt MIA for Adele

10/27/2016 6:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump came on strong Thursday calling George Stephanopoulos a hater who is so blinded by his former bosses he doesn't see his own hypocrisy. 

The 'GMA' host asked Trump about taking time off the campaign trail Wednesday to open his new Washington D.C. hotel. Trump bristled, saying how insane it was to be asked such a question when the media cooed that Hillary took Tuesday night off to see an Adele concert.

Trump also made it clear ... the hotel's grand opening was actually political, in the sense he brought the project in on time and under budget ... something that generally doesn't happen in other buildings on Pennsylvania Ave.


2016 Election California Celebs Snap a Pic at the Polls, Go to Prison, Maybe

Exclusive Details

1026_CELEBS_AT_THE_POLLS_instagram_tumblr-launch-2Justin Timberlake may have skated by taking an illegal selfie of his ballot at the Tennessee polls, but if celebs in Hollywood snap their ballots they could be in peril ... as in FELONY peril.

Most people don't know it, but there's a dusty old California law that makes it illegal for a voter to disclose their ballot choices at the polls. The law was passed 125 years ago, but it's still in effect and the punishment is up to 4 YEARS IN PRISON.

The law Timberlake violated pales by comparison. If prosecutors went after him, the most he'd get is 30 days in the pokey.

Now here's the weird part. The good folks in Sacramento just passed a law that will allow people to take selfies at the polls and display their choices to the world. The logic ... it encourages people to vote. Problem is ... the new law doesn't take effect until January 1, 2017.

So, what to do? We did some digging and couldn't find a single case where a voter was prosecuted.

We called the L.A. County D.A. and asked if they would let celebs and others skate if they dare disclose their preferences at the polls. The D.A. would not say one way or the other ... an official said they will not comment on "hypotheticals."

So, Barbra Streisand, Scooter Braun, Ellen DeGeneres, Lady Gaga, Jamie Foxx and George Clooney ... snap at your peril.

Judge Mathis I Go Light on Crime When It's Against Trump

10/27/2016 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Judge Mathis isn't exactly condemning the dude who took a pickax to Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame ... in fact, he wants to give the guy a medal. 

Hizzoner was leaving Catch in WeHo Wednesday night when our photog asked about self-proclaimed vandal James Otis, who will be arrested Thursday for felony vandalism.

Mathis doesn't seem to be a believer in equal justice ... for all.


Jennifer Meyer Diamonds Save Relationships ... Just Not Mine

10/27/2016 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Meyer doesn't have a lot to say about make up gifts, which is ... interesting.

Jen, who just announced her separation from hubby Tobey Maguire, hit the town Wednesday night for some grub at Bouchon in Bev Hills, and she was all smiles. 

It looks like a fun table ... Jennifer was joined by Nico Mizrahi, a portfolio manager, Katy Perry and her pal, Vanity Fair writer Derek Blasberg.

As for Jen and Nico, it's not what you think. He just got married. Jen is loaded so he could just be making the rich richer.


Drake Introduced Taylor to His Mom, But ...

10/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026_drake_taylor_swift_tmzDrake gave Taylor Swift the VIP treatment at his 30th birthday bash, including some QT with his mom -- normally an early sign of dating -- but that's not the case ... this time.

Sources connected to Drake tell us he introduced Swift to his mom and several of his homies during the Sunday night party in WeHo. TayTay's not a regular at Drizzy's legendary parties ... which is why he wanted to make sure she met his inner circle, including Mom. After all, she's arguably the biggest female music star on the planet.

1026_Drake_taylor_swift_2013_vma_gettyOf course, the special care sparked all sorts of post-party reports Drake and Taylor were getting hot and heavy at the event -- and we're told they are close, but only friends. They have been for years, in fact, they hung out at the 2013 VMAs.

So, no banging here ... we're told. Besides, that's RiRi's job.

Martha Stewart Sexting is Totally Wholesome!!!

10/27/2016 6:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Martha Stewart says sexting for her is totally on brand.  

We got Martha at LAX and asked about her recent reveal on 'Ellen' that she's sexted. She didn't elaborate then, but she did with us. 

She even seems to think hackers could easily leak her sexts if they wanted, and if the media saw 'em ... we'd all **** our pants. 

Until then ... get it, Martha.
