Trump Star Vandal Green Eggs and Slam

10/27/2016 4:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The vandal who went to town on Donald Trump's star has more than enough money to defend himself in court ... he has a massive Dr. Seuss art collection and, get this, his great great granddad created the Otis Elevator Company!

James Otis just got out of jail after being arrested for felony vandalism, and he has quite the pedigree. In addition to the lift, James' great grandfather invented Listerine, and James himself boasts the biggest Dr. Seuss art collection in the country.

So ... he might write:

I do not like Trump here or there
I do not like Trump with his hair
I do not like Trump and his wall
I do not like Trump at all
I do not like Trump with Billy Bush
But I do think Trump likes a big fat tush
I do not like Trump in a car
But I do like smashing Trump's Hollywood star


Dakota Fanning Parents Split ... Hot Dad Back on the Market

10/27/2016 3:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027-dakota-fanning-parents-tmz-getty-ffn-01Dakota Fanning's mom and dad are done after almost 27 years ... TMZ has learned. 

Dakota's dad, Steven Fanning, just filed for divorce from his wife, Heather, citing irreconcilable differences. Their kids are both of age, so child support isn't an issue -- Dakota's 22, Elle is 18. 

As for spousal support, it's as a bit of a mystery ... Steve didn't check any boxes asking for support from Heather. 

That said, he says he still needs to figure out how he and Heather are going to split their property. But we're guessing this stud will be just fine when it's all said and done.

Mariah Carey Packer 'Mentally Unstable' and 'Violent'

10/27/2016 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027_mariah_carey_james_packer_tmz_gettyJames Packer "is not in his right mind" ... so claim people who Mariah Carey has downloaded with info about her bitter breakup.

Our Mariah sources tell us, "she had to leave him" and he hasn't been "present for her" in a couple of months. They call James "mentally unstable."

Even more serious ... the sources say the last straw for the relationship was that he got "violent" a month ago on a yacht in Greece.

TMZ broke the story ... Mariah claimed Packer was really terrible to her assistant on the boat, and that sent her packing.

Packer's camp tells TMZ ... Mariah's allegations are "simply untrue."

Mariah Carey, James Packer Done for Good Bad Blood Flows

10/27/2016 2:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027-mariah-carey-james-packer-tmz-getty-02Mariah Carey and James Packer are not only broken up for good, there is extreme animosity between the two ... sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ.

TMZ broke the story ... the relationship was turbulent for a long time, but the last straw was a yacht trip to Greece a month ago, when James allegedly did something to Mariah's assistant ... or so she says.

We're told James' version of events is radically different from Mariah's ... and behind the scenes there's tremendous bitterness on both sides.

Although details of the breakup are still sketchy, one thing we know ... it's over.

Alec Baldwin Lawsuit Too Late to Bitch About 'Fake' Art ... Says Gallery Owner

10/27/2016 1:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027-alec-baldwin-TMZ-01It's a case of too bad, so sad for Alec Baldwin ... according to the art gallery owner he's suing for selling him a "fake" painting. 

Mary Boone responded to Baldwin's suit, saying the actor waited more than 6 years to file the suit over "Sea and Mirror" -- the Ross Bleckner painting Boone's gallery sold him for $190k. In docs, Boone's legal team says the statute of limitations has run out, so Baldwin's got no beef ... legally speaking.

Further, she claims Baldwin committed tax fraud. Boone's attorneys claim he should have paid $16,625 in NY city and state tax on the painting, but instead had it "shipped momentarily" to his Cali home, then back to his NYC pad.

Translation: He has unclean hands in this deal, and therefore shouldn't be pointing fingers at her in court.

Boone says she's not conceding Alec's counterfeit claims are true ... she's just not addressing it because his lawsuit's too late. She's asking the court to toss the case.

1027-rob-kardashian-pilot-jones-blac-chyna-tmz-instagram-04update_graphic_red_bar1:36 PM PT -- Blac just went off on Pilot, saying the photo in question was taken over 2 years ago. Blac's adamant she never slept with Pilot and adds that the entire ordeal is a ploy to drum up hype for his new track.update_grey_gray_barRob Kardashian is under criminal investigation for allegedly threatening a man with some pretty close ties to Blac Chyna.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Rob allegedly physically threatened Pilot Jones, who's been hanging with Blac Chyna. We're told Rob threatened to do Pilot harm.

The allegations come on the heels of photos that surfaced showing Blac and Pilot making out. 

We're told Pilot is scared, partly because of a string of text messages, which include Rob telling Pilot, "Leave my wife alone. I'm not playing with you."

Our law enforcement sources say, there are other texts in which Rob generally threatens Pilot with physical harm if he doesn't stay away from Blac Chyna, although as one source says, the threat is "a little murky and general."

As we first reported ... cops nabbed Otis Thursday morning in West Hollywood and he's being booked for felony vandalism. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce says the star is worth $30,000.

As for Trump's nameplate -- it was mostly obliterated during Otis' attack, and he says he did not take the pieces.


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.

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

10/27/2016 6:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
