'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.

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.

Hicks Divided

On Mama June Scandal

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.

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

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.

To End Conservatorship

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.

Virgin Galactic SpaceShip

EXPLODES

Pilot Dead

10/31/2014 11:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

103114_virgin_galactic_fox_launchA Virgin Galactic spaceship exploded during a test flight Friday over California's Mojave Desert  ... leaving one crew member dead and another severely injured.

Virgin Galactic says their SpaceShipTwo experienced "an in-flight anomaly" after it launched at 9:15 AM.

103114_virgin_galactic_nbc_launch_v2The spacecraft is launched after it is released from another aircraft in flight.  According to reports the spaceship blew up shortly after the release and it's engines ignited.

The plane that released the spacecraft landed safely.

The spaceship is designed to go 62 miles above Earth. It's unclear how high the doomed craft was when it blew up.


A bunch of celebs have reportedly signed up for the initial launch already -- including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Justin Bieber.

Virgin Group founder Richard Branson tweeted about the incident, saying he planned to fly to Mojave immediately to be with the team.

Story developing ...

Back to Mel's Drive-In

Late for Court

EXCLUSIVE

1031_amanda_bynes_at_mels_today2
Amanda Bynes
likes what she likes ... she went to another Mel's Drive-In at around noon ... which has made it impossible for her to show up in court on time in her bid to regain her freedom.

Amanda went to Mel's in Hollywood -- several miles from another Mel's she dined at last night. This time she chowed down on watermelon ... bird food compared to last night's feast which included fried chicken, salmon and a Caesar.  

This time she was with a dude, who drove her to the diner in a sports car. The waitress tells us Amanda was chatty, talking about her plastic surgery and requesting a hair tie.

At one point Amanda started chatting with people at nearby tables, and when one person said "Hi," she responded "I'm fine."  

The waitress tells us she stepped out of the way several times for an imaginary person.

Amanda paid the tab with a $100 bill. It's unclear how she's getting the money.

Amanda left the restaurant at around 12:55 PM, which is going to make it impossible for her to be in court at 1:30 in Ventura County where she's making a play to end her parents' conservatorship.

Amanda Bynes Makes It Rain Hotel

Amanda Bynes made it rain on the Sunset Strip Thursday night ... but not at a strip club -- in the middle of a hotel lobby.

Sources tell us Bynes attempted to snag a room at the London hotel as she meandered the streets on the Sunset Strip Thursday, but when she got there she was turned away. Amanda has stayed there before and caused big problems.

We're told Amanda became angry, grabbed a giant wad of cash, and tossed the bills into the air in the direction of the front desk.

As we previously reported ... Bynes plans to go to court today to get control of her life. She's trying to 86 her parents' conservatorship.
