Florida Cop Shocking Vid Of Cop Punching Teen Girl ... During Mall Arrest

10/20/2018 3:08 PM PDT

This brutal video of Florida police repeatedly punching a 14-year-old girl pinned to the ground during her arrest is triggering controversy.

You see the cop landing left hooks to the teen's rib cage, as he and another officer try to arrest her during a physical confrontation Thursday outside the Coral Springs Mall in Coral Springs, Florida. 

The shocking vid, posted to Instagram by a woman claiming to be the teen's cousin, is being defended by police. 

The Coral Springs Police Department says officers responded to a disturbance at the mall and took a teenage boy into custody, and that's when the girl in the video began cursing at police and trying to incite her friends. Cops say the girl was resisting arrest, and as you see, punches started flying. 

The teen was eventually handcuffed, and cops claim she kicked one of the officers as they hauled her off in a patrol car.

EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham is making sure she looks her best when she steps into the ring to fight Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander ... we've learned she just got some new ink!

Farrah hit up Faces In The Dark Tattoo parlor in Austin, Texas Friday afternoon to get a microblading procedure ... shop owner Tye Harris tells TMZ, Farrah was in and out in about 30 minutes and the ex-'Teen Mom' star is thrilled with her new look. 

Tattoo and makeup artist Hilary Whitworith did the honors and used a special needle to apply ink to the skin between all the hairs on both of Farrah's eyebrows. 

The needle is dipped in ink -- which is the same pigment as Farrah's hair -- and then applied. The purpose is to make Farrah's brows appear fuller.

Senator Mitch McConnell Confronted at Restaurant ... By Angry Customers

10/20/2018 7:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, was confronted Friday night by some angry diners who loudly berated him for his politics.

The Kentucky Senator was eating dinner with his wife at Havana Rumba in Louisville, when 4 men confronted Mitch. The main aggressor screams at McConnell, "Why don't you get out of here?  Why don't you leave the entire country?"

The woman who shot the video tells us, before she started recording, the main aggressor slammed his fists down on McConnell's table, grabbed his doggie bag and threw the food out the door of the restaurant.

The woman says the main gripe seemed to be the Senator's stance on Social Security and health care.  McConnell recently said entitlement programs are the main cause of massive debt. The woman says before she started shooting, the main aggressor was screaming that McConnell was killing people with his views.

McConnell kept his cool and afterward thanked some of his supporters, shaking their hands.

And there's this ... the woman who shot the video says before McConnell left there appeared to be some dispute over the bill. They talked to the waiter and restaurant manager and apparently resolved it.

Republican lawmakers have had a tough time lately at restaurants.

Britney Spears I'm Goin' All Street and Urban ... For My New Vegas Residency!!!

10/20/2018 7:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Britney Spears is going urban, street and hip-hop ... that's what we're being told by the folks who are creating her 2.0 Vegas concert residency.

Britney announced Thursday she was making a return to the Las Vegas Strip to bring back her hugely successful residency. 

Sources involved in the show's production tell us ... the new show will look and feel fundamentally different from her 'Piece of Me' residency at Planet Hollywood.

The new show -- at MGM Park -- will have "an urban, street, hip-hop vibe" that will be reflected in the music, wardrobe, choreography, backup dancers and set design. 

And there's more ... as one production source put it, the stage will have "bleeding edge technology." And, we're told, they've hired 2 creative directors who developed J Lo's successful Vegas residency.

Britney will not be going all N.W.A. ... she'll still perform all her hits, but there will be mixes in between songs and a significant dose of hip-hop.

Brit knows her show has to be bigger and better than before, and we're told she's psyched.

It better be good ... she's raking in around half a mil for each performance.

Jenelle Evans Hubby Paints Picture of Love ... Following Domestic Violence Incident

10/20/2018 7:49 AM PDT

Jenelle Evans doesn't have a care in the world after a horrific domestic violence incident ... at least if you're buyin' the video her husband shot.

David Eason recorded his dinner with Jenelle and their kid Friday night at a North Carolina restaurant ... and he sounds like he's going a little overboard to make everything seem all kumbaya.

It's in glaring contrast to Jenelle's desperate 911 call last weekend, in which she graphically explains how she was the victim of domestic violence at his hands.

Jenelle did not follow up with a police report, and almost incredibly the police are taking no action to even investigate. It's unclear if Child Services is doing its own investigation, which sometimes happens when there's alleged violence involving the parents. 

Blue Ivy I'm Super Ready for Halloween!!!

10/20/2018 7:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blue Ivy went pumpkin shopping Friday and the outing was super cute.

Blue hit up Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in Culver City with some pals, and they had a blast.

Her parents -- in case you're not familiar, Beyonce and Jay-Z -- were nowhere in sight, but it was easy to spot their 6'10" bodyguard who shadowed the 6-year-old for the field trip.

About 100 kids roamed the patch and played on the inflatable slides. They also hung with the animals at the petting zoo -- goats, sheep and chickens.

And, of course, there was the obligatory Frankenstein monster who was a photo fav.

Floyd Mayweather Doesn't 'Give a F***' About Pacquiao Anymore

10/20/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Sorry, fight fans ... Floyd Mayweather's making it clear -- the Manny Pacquiao tilt is off.

"I don't give a f*** about what's going on with Pacquiao," Floyd tells TMZ Sports.

Remember ... Floyd was singing a little different tune just a few weeks ago -- when he said, "I'm coming back to fight Manny Pacquiao this year another 9 figure pay day on the way."

But, Floyd tells us that's now off, saying, "We not going to make that happen right now. Not right now. We must take that fight and let that fight build. And then, down the line, let that fight happen."

So, what happened??

Mayweather says it's kinda complicated ... but, basically, since Pacman's now signed with Floyd's manager, Al Haymon -- they wanna go a different route.

"I think the best fight for Pacquiao -- what I told Al Haymon -- was probably the Adrien Broner fight. And then we got Errol Spence and Terence Crawford."

In the meantime ... Floyd seems sure as hell set on getting in the ring with Khabib and/or Conor McGregor.

EXCLUSIVE

Dennis Hof's longtime pal in the sex biz, Heidi Fleiss, tells us the famous brothel owner's sugary diet and poor eating habits played a major role in his death. 

Heidi would know better than anyone ... she's known Dennis forever and tells us he was constantly chowing down on an insane amount of Fudgsicles before and after dinner, and things got so bad recently, Dennis could barely walk. 

Dennis' eating habits were so out of whack, Heidi says the famous pimp equated a Taco Bell salad to kale. She's convinced Dennis' declining health was a direct result of his poor diet, and believes it contributed to Hof's death

The two longtime friends were planning to turn things around with a health retreat, but Heidi says they never got the chance. 

As we first reported ... Dennis' Love Ranch has been shut down in the wake of his sudden death, and the future of his other brothel, the Bunny Ranch, is also up in the air. 

As for what's next for the sex ranches ... the Hollywood Madam is dropping hints about the whorehouses' future, and whether she's going to get involved. 

Balenciaga Sued You're Barking Up the Wrong Tree!!!

10/20/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Balenciaga's dive into the key rings business reeks of a total rip-off ... so claims the company behind Little Trees air fresheners, which is suing the luxury brand for straight-up jacking its product.

Car-Freshner Corporation -- which owns the rights to Little Trees Air Fresheners -- claims Balenciaga is selling leather key rings that look almost identical to its signature product.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Little Trees claims it snagged the trademark back in 1952 and its Little Trees are so famous and popular big companies have licensed them ... including Buffalo Wild Wings, Discover Financial Services, Kia Motors and Capital One.

But, Little Trees says Balenciaga never asked for permission and started selling copycats last month at its NYC store and at Neiman Marcus. Little Trees says Balenciaga was so brazen it went as far as copying the specific colors associated with the most popular scents. 

Little Trees believes unsuspecting customers will confuse the 2 brands ... and that crosses the legal line. Little Trees wants Balenciaga to fork over the profits from its tree products. BTW ... a 1-pack of Little Trees will set you back around $3 ... whereas Balenciaga's key ring goes for around $275. Hard to imagine anyone mixing up the two. 

We've reached out to Balenciaga, so far no word back.
