Backstreet Boys Quit Playing Games With Our Yuan! Chinese Co. Sues Promoter

2/8/2016 6:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0208_backstreet-boys-gettyThe Backstreet Boys are in the middle of a little showdown in big China -- between a concert touring company and a promoter accused of pulling a $2 million scam.

The touring company says it forked over the cash to a woman named Angela Wong, who posed as a successful promoter who'd previously brought Britney Spears over to China ... and said she could do the same with BSB.

The company says Wong promised she'd lock in the Boys for 10 concerts last March, but she eventually tried to postpone the scheduled dates. According to the suit, things really got fishy when the Backstreet Boys ended up coming to China around those dates ... but through a different promoter.

The suit says Wong gave back $640k when the company called her out, but now it's suing to get the rest of the money back ... plus damages.

Amy Robach Scored Giudice Sit Down Over Big Dogs ... Sorry, Robin & George

2/8/2016 4:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0208-amy-robach-teresa-giudice-TMZ-GETTY-01Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos get all the anchor shine, but news reader Amy Robach snatched the big Teresa Giudice interview away from her GMA colleagues.

TMZ has learned Robach nailed the 'RHONJ' star's first post-prison sit down -- a big get for sweeps, which ABC's news hounds had to be dying to get. It's the kinda thing Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer used to battle over.

Our sources tell us Amy got the nod based on her history with Giudice -- and in fact, the ex-con laid down the law ... saying it had to be Robach or the interview was off.

Amy first interviewed her in 2014, and we're told Giudice liked that one enough to come back for more. The full interview airs Tuesday morning, but GMA already released a clip of Giudice talking about her finances.

Gwyneth Paltrow Sobs on Stand Stalker Forced Me to Get Attack Dog

2/8/2016 11:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0208_Gwyneth-Paltrow_tmzGwyneth Paltrow broke down on the stand Monday afternoon, testifying she's weary of fearing the man who's been stalking her for 17 years.

Gwyneth told the jury she got an attack dog to protect her and her family. At one point she asked her bodyguard to come over and teach the dog attack and bite commands. She was alone at home with the kids and scared.  

The actress is testifying against Dante Soiu, who faces felony criminal charges. Cops say he's sent her 66 letters and has tried to get to her in various other ways.

Gwyneth is telling the judge Soiu threatened to use a scalpel "to cut out sin" in her body. 

Authorities say in the past Soiu has made "a threat of a sexual nature."

He's left presents at her parents' home, sent sexually graphic material, love notes, flowers and candy.

Taryn Manning Suing New York City ... Cops Had No Right To Bust Me!

2/8/2016 1:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0208-taryn-manning-TMZ-01"Orange Is the New Black" star Taryn Manning is suing the Big Apple for arresting her based on accusations from a woman previously busted for stalking her.

Taryn was busted in November 2014 for violating a restraining order by allegedly sending threatening texts to her former pal Jeanine Heller. Jeanine told cops one of the messages said, "I will kill you, bitch."

Taryn says she didn't dodge the law ... in fact she and her attorney went to cops to explain Jeanine's allegations were false and this was really a case of Jeanine stalking Taryn. Cops didn't budge, cuffing her and putting her in a holding cell for about 3.5 hours ... according to Taryn.

She claims the arrest was eventually voided, but the damage is done as far as Taryn's concerned. She's suing the city for false arrest and imprisonment ... and wants damages, aka money.

0208-john-lennon-hair-GETTY-HERITAGE-AUCTIONS-01Several locks of John Lennon's hair are on the auction block, and even though it's already going for five figures ... it's a steal as Lennon memorabilia goes.

Heritage Auction out of Dallas is hawking a 4-inch chunk of John's hair -- a hairdresser cut it off before his role in a 1967 movie called, "How I Won The War" -- and the current bid is at $12k.

Past Lennon items have gone for way more than that: his '65 Rolls Royce Phantom V sold for $2.23 MILLION, and Lennon's handwritten lyrics to "All You Need is Love" fetched $1.25 million.

So chances are the price on Lennon's locks will go through the roof too. Get your bids in now!

Beyonce Chillin' in Style During Super Bowl Weekend

2/8/2016 9:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0208_beyonce_super_bowl_house_launchBeyonce was fired up about social issues during the Super Bowl halftime show, but she was nothing but zen before and after ... because the house she rented is the picture of tranquility.

The estate is located in Los Altos Hills ... about 30 minutes from Levi's Stadium. The $50 million home sits on 12-acres ... self-sustaining with 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms.

The neighbors got wise to the famous renter after a police motorcade with blacked-out SUV windows were traversing the area.  

Beyonce posted a picture of herself inside the house to her social media accounts. 

The rental -- which goes for $10k a night on Airbnb --  has a rooftop vegetable garden, an orchard and live chickens!  Of course, it comes with an infinity pool, game room with a pool table and a fitness center.

Prius Super Bowl Ad Cops Call BS ... That Thing Will NEVER Outrun Us!

2/8/2016 8:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

That Prius Super Bowl commercial rubbed cops the wrong way -- not because it made high speed chases look like good, clean fun ... but because it's a big fat lie!

Several law enforcement sources tell us the Prius spot was hysterically unrealistic. One source said, "Loved it, funny as hell ... like a Prius is going to outrun anything."

Other reviews included:
- "overdone"
- "silly"
- "you can't outrun a helicopter"

They've got a point. The new Prius 4 tops out around 105 mph, while a police cruiser can do at least 120 mph -- and their 0-60 times are a laughable 10.5 seconds compared to 6 flat.

Now, a few sources were concerned about the ad's overall message, saying ... "I had to tell my kids running from cops is a bad thing." But the overall take on Prius' attempt to look worthy of a felony -- "goobery and dumb."
