Cesar Millan couldn't stop one of his gigantic clients -- a Great Dane -- from attacking a neighbor during a training session yesterday ... TMZ has learned.
Sources tell us the 'Dog Whisperer' star was walking a group of dogs, including the Great Dane, near his home in Studio City, CA -- and none of the dogs were leashed.
We're told one of Millan's neighbors was out walking his own dog ... and when the neighbor reached out to let the Great Dane sniff his palm ... the dog suddenly bit the man's hand and forearm.
We're told Cesar followed the man to the hospital where he was treated and released. Unclear, at this point, how badly he was injured.
A rep for Millan confirmed the attack, and says Cesar was walking a "troubled dog" as part of its training, when it got "spooked by a neighbor." The rep added, Cesar is still caring for the dog.
We don't know yet how big this dog was -- but adult Great Danes range from 100 to 120 pounds.
A source close to the victim tells us "he's healing," and is following up with a physician today.
Quickie Wedding Reeks of Ex-Fiancé
29 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Naya Rivera's marriage to actor Ryan Dorsey came out of nowhere for everyone, except Naya -- who actually co-opted a lot of the ceremony from her planned wedding to Big Sean ... including the date.
Rivera and Dorsey tied the knot in Cabo San Lucas over the weekend. The longtime friends began dating right after Rivera broke off her engagement to rapper Big Sean in April.
According to our sources, the wedding date -- July 19 -- was the exact same date Naya and Sean were supposed to tie the knot. We're told Naya picked the date back in October when she and Sean got engaged.
The similarities don't end there ... according to reports, Rivera was married in a Monique Lhuillier gown -- which our sources say is the same designer of the dress Sean bought for Rivera for their wedding.
One more thing -- Rivera never gave back Sean's engagement ring, according to our sources. However, we don't know if she found a way to re-purpose that.
I Don't Do Lines
Wheelchairs it at Disneyland
7/23/2014 7:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
7:55 AM PT -- Justin's camp tells us he was nursing a knee injury from basketball -- and only sat in the wheelchair for a few moments. We're told he did NOT use it to cut lines ... and in fact, he wouldn't need to since Disney already escorts him into rides to avoid huge crowds.
Justin Bieber + wheelchair + Disneyland = I get to cut to the front of the line!
Justin was at the happiest place on earth in Anaheim Sunday and posed with a fan while in a wheelchair.
Now it's possible:
A. He's really hurt
B. It's not his wheelchair ... he just posed in it
C. He's a line scofflaw
The pic got out because the fan posted it, saying "I love how he just pretended to be a normal person on a wheelchair."
We tried reaching Bieber's people but so far no luck.

In Paparazzi Lawsuit
37 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Adele's 1-year-old son Angelo will get a 5-figure settlement from paparazzi ... after the singer sued a British photo agency for ruining her son's "milestone moments."
Adele sued Corbis Images UK ... accusing the agency's photogs of illegally taking and posting pics of her little boy during his first family outings -- which she calls his milestone moments.
Adele claimed celeb kids aren't public property ... so paps have no right to invade their privacy. Fact is ... the privacy laws in England -- where the pics were taken -- are way stronger than in the U.S.
We're told Corbis has settled up by paying a 5-figure sum.
Cara Delevingne & Selena Gomez
Getting Wet Together

It's Selena Gomez's birthday, but we're getting the gifts -- behold Selena and Cara Delevingne showering ... together ... in bikinis ... on a yacht.
Our favorite new BFFs made the sexiest pitch for water conservation while continuing SG's bday week celebration in St. Tropez -- but this time they had company in the form of Tommaso "Tommy" Chiabra.
In addition to ruining an otherwise perfect moment ... Chiabra has been seen with Gomez a lot recently, and has also been linked to 'Gossip Girl' Jessica Szohr.
Hate him. Love the pics.

Accused of Grabbing Boob
7/23/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ray J is being accused of sexual assault not for grabbing a woman's ass at a Beverly Hills bar ... he allegedly grabbed her boob in front of witnesses.
TMZ broke the story ... Ray J was at Side Bar May 30th at the Beverly Wilshire hotel. He got in an altercation at the bar, was thrown out, the cops came and Ray J allegedly went nuts, kicking out a police car window and spitting on an officer. He's been charged with 4 misdemeanors, including assault and battery and sexual battery.
The sexual battery is curious. The Beverly Hills PD told TMZ the day after the incident ... Ray J did not commit a crime when he touched a woman. We were told he touched her butt and cops said it was "incidental."
But now law enforcement sources say they've found "new evidence" ... although it's weird that it's new. We now know multiple witnesses -- staff and patrons -- say they saw Ray J grab a woman's boob in the bar and now cops believe prosecution for sexual battery is appropriate.
One witness says Ray J came into the hotel "wacked out on something" and pushed an 8-year-old in the lobby as he made his way to the bar.
We're also told both the lobby and the bar are filled with surveillance cameras. We're told there are so many cameras in the bar everything can be seen -- they can even zoom in on a tab.
Ray J's arraignment is set for Friday. He is not required to be in court.
Barack Was Right to Bail
7/23/2014 6:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Network rivalries aside, CBS honcho Les Moonves thinks President Barack Obama had no choice but to cancel his planned appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
TMZ broke the story ... the Prez was going to Kimmel's Hollywood studio at 3 PM Wednesday to appear on the show ... without a studio audience ... but he backed out.
Moonves said the appearance on a different network was no big deal ... but that Obama has too much going on right now in the world to hit up the late night shows.
Obama's press secretary said Tuesday given the 2 world crises it wasn't a good idea to appear on a comedy show.
Kimmel's people told TMZ we were flat out wrong about any Obama appearance on Kimmel Wednesday ... but the plan was in tact, to the point the Kimmel staff had to ante up their SSNs.
Paul Hogan Divorce
I'm Done With You ...
But I'm Keeping 'Crocodile Dundee'
7/23/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Paul Hogan has cut bait with his estranged wife, Linda -- their divorce just became final -- but he's hanging on to the true love of his life ... "Crocodile Dundee."
Hogan is keeping the rights to the "Crocodile Dundee" character and the film company that produced the movies ... according to the divorce docs obtained by TMZ. He also keeps ownership of their house in Venice, CA.
For her part ... Linda gets a lump sum of $5.775 million from Paul -- and gets to keep living in the Venice house until 2018 or until she remarries ...whichever happens first. She also has the option to buy the pad outright for $1.59 mil -- the original purchase price.
In the kid department ... they'll share legal custody of their 15-year-old son, Chance and neither will pay child support. Ditto for spousal support.
The ex Mrs. Hogan ditched one other thing -- she's officially Linda Kozlowski again.
On a Yacht

Leonardo DiCaprio was kung fu fightin' the hell out of someone in his mind ... as he ripped off some seriously high kicks in the South of France.
The Wolf of Wall Street was kicking air, taking names, and rocking a pony ... while onboard a yacht off St. Tropez Tuesday.
We know Leo loves MMA ... so the kickfest could be a new workout regimen -- or maybe he seriously wants a rematch with the guy who crushed him at Coachella.
Movie Mel Gibson
Would've Made a Great Cop
7/23/2014 4:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mel Gibson and his "Lethal Weapon" alter ego Martin Riggs both come with their share of baggage, but former NYC top cop Bernard Kerik says he'd love to have him on his force ... and we think he means Riggs, not Mel.
Kerik was roaming the halls of the Senate building Tuesday when our photog quizzed him on his favorite police movies (think 1970s NYC) and if a loose cannon like Riggs could have ever served under him.
Given Kerik's answer, we think he's mostly talking about the movie version of Mel ... but the real life version could apply as well.
Bubba's Got Beef with Bubba Gump Shrimp
7/23/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mykelti Williamson won't step foot in the restaurants named after his most famous character ... because he's got issues with corporate giant Viacom.
Of course Mykelti played Bubba in "Forrest Gump" -- which inspired the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. chain of restaurants, so we brought it up with him at LAX on Tuesday ... only to discover he's NEVER eaten there.
MW first told us how he celebrated the recent 20th anniversary of 'Gump' -- but quickly launched into a rant about the movie studio's parent company and its ties to the restaurants, and big oil ... of which he's not a fan.
Only problem is he's mistakenly referring to Gulf Western Oil, which has nothing to do with Viacom. A company called Gulf + Western DID merge with Paramount (and eventually Viacom) ... but is NOT an oil company.
Glad we could clear that up. Now make a reservation, Mykelti.
White House Confirms
Prez Called Off Kimmel Appearance
7/22/2014 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
5:55 PM PT -- We've learned the Kimmel plan was so far down the road ... the White House had requested Social Security numbers from everyone on the staff, and to run background checks for all El Capitan employees.
President Obama pulled the plug on a planned "Jimmy Kimmel" appearance Wednesday ... because he didn't think it was wise to do a comedy show in the middle of 2 international crises.
TMZ broke the story ... Obama was going to the El Capitan Theatre -- next door to where Kimmel is taped -- at 3 PM Wednesday to do the show. After we posted the story ... Kimmel's show publicist told us we were dead wrong ... there was never a plan for Obama to appear. She said she had never heard of any such booking and she would know if that were the case.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the President was in talks with Kimmel but pulled the plug to deal "with more serious matters."
Although Earnest says they were in talks with Kimmel, we're told he had committed to doing the show. We're also told as late as Sunday, the plan was to announce the appearance on GMA Monday, which did not happen.
LAPD sources say they were told Obama's trip to the El Capitan was a go, but they were told the plug was pulled Tuesday afternoon.
