Lindsay Lohan Daddy Wants a Piece of Egor ... After Weekend Fight

7/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-michael-lohan-egor-tarabasov-tmz-gettyLindsay Lohan's father fired off a series of angry, threatening text messages to her fiance on the heels of the couple's huge argument that had police rushing to their apartment. 

TMZ obtained the texts Michael Lohan sent Egor Tarabasov late Saturday night -- and it's pretty clear he's already spoken to LiLo about the fight. Michael says, "You threaten my daughter, touch her or if anything happens to her and you will have no where to hide mother ducked like weasel."

The messages are filled with typos -- we're guessing his anger had taken over. Michael continues ... "VOME Here And Face ME like a man and bring your daddy and mommy."

0725_micheal_lohan_text_message_tmz_wm_SUB-2As we reported -- neighbors called police after hearing Lindsay yelling outside their apartment, accusing Egor of strangling her. 

Michael comes off like a Liam Neeson wannabe in the messages, adding ... "Return her jewelry you broke phoney or I'll take it out of your ass. I WILL find you."

Lindsay flew back to the States on Monday sans Egor. We've reached out to him for his side of the story, but he hasn't responded.

Michelle Obama I Live in a House Built By Slaves But America's Already Great

7/25/2016 8:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Michelle Obama delivered a powerful speech at the DNC about gender, race and the American Dream ... and threw in more than a few digs at Donald Trump.

FLOTUS hit the stage Monday night in Philly to publicly endorse Hillary Clinton -- but also spoke about how she and President Obama teach their daughters to ignore people who "bully" their father about his religion or heritage. She never mentioned Trump by name, but everyone got the point.  

She was most poignant when she talked about how far African-Americans have come, saying ... "I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves."  

Check out some highlights, including Michelle's final not at all subtle punch -- "Don't let anyone tell you we need to make America great again ... because this is the greatest country on Earth."

Of course, she almost immediately got a shout out from POTUS. Smart move on his part ...

Florida Georgia Line We Love Cops, But We Have Our Own Security

7/26/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725_florida-georgia-line_getty_2The guys from Florida Georgia Line want to make it clear they have total respect for men and women in blue -- but, respectfully, there's a good reason they didn't need their help backstage.

Sources close to FGL's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard tell us security for all their concerts is handled through promoters at the venues. It's just part of their contracts for each gig.

We're told local cops regularly ask if they can help out backstage, and are usually told it's not necessary. FGL's team believes this frees up law enforcement for other security needs around the venue.

TMZ broke the story ... an Iowa sheriff was fuming after getting turned away backstage. Our FGL sources said that incident and one in Wisconsin are rarities, because most law enforcement welcome the fact the band is self-sufficient.

Bottom line, according to our sources -- Florida Georgia Line is extremely "pro-police."

EXCLUSIVE

DJ Khaled is showing even more love for a fan -- who's now Internet famous ... giving the guy his personal digits and setting up another meeting with him this week.

We spoke to Christopher Alvarez about his meeting with Khaled in NYC last week -- and he told us they've really hit it off since then.

EXCLUSIVE

0725-taylor-swift-tmzThe fan who tried to bum-rush Taylor Swift during a concert is going away for a long time, but not to prison ... TMZ has learned.

A judge ruled Christian Ewing incompetent to stand trial, and instead ordered him to spend up to 3 years at Patton State Hospital. The San Diego County D.A. says Ewing will remain there until he's ruled competent.

The judge also ordered medication be administered involuntarily, if necessary. 

As we reported, Ewing got into a nasty brawl with security after he rushed the stage at Petco Park last year -- breaking a security guard's rib.

When and if he's ruled competent, Ewing will face 2 felony charges -- assault and battery -- for the fight.

50 Cent Good Luck Getting a Hit from Diddy!

7/25/2016 4:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

50 Cent threw enough shade to keep Diddy cool for a few months when he begged a packed Scottsdale club to rattle off the Bad Boy honcho's last hit track.

Let's just say there were a lotta crickets inside INTL Nightclub over the weekend.  

Someone does eventually offer up Diddy's "You Could Be My Lover" off his most recent "MMM" mixtape -- and Fiddy performed a mocking lip sync.

There's been beef between Fif and Diddy for more than a year now -- most of it one-sided as 50 keeps throwing social media jabs over music, their vodka lines, age, weight and just about everything else.

Diddy rarely responds, but once again ... ball's in his court.

Justin Timberlake Slapped at Golf Tourney ... Fan Arrested.

7/25/2016 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Timberlake got five to the face from a golf spectator -- and then the spectator got busted by cops ... TMZ has learned.

We obtained video of JT shot Saturday at the American Century Celebrity Pro-Am in Lake Tahoe -- and you clearly see a hand smack Justin as he's walking through the crowd. He didn't take it lightly either.

Justin turned around and yelled, "Why would you do that?" After he walked off, security for the tourney was seen talking to the slaphappy suspect.

Tournament reps saw it as a minor incident, and Justin -- who didn't have a mark on him -- didn't want to press charges ... but when Sheriff's deputies attempted to escort the man off the course things went south.

Law enforcement sources tell us he claimed he just wanted to "touch" Justin and got overzealous -- but refused to leave the premises. We're told he appeared intoxicated and became belligerent. Cops arrested him for disorderly conduct.

Always remember ...

Dr. Dre Searched By Cops in Alleged Racial Road Rage Case

7/25/2016 1:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dr. Dre got cuffed and patted down by Sheriff's deputies outside his Malibu home after an alleged road rage dispute over a guy blocking his driveway ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Dre tell us the motorist had pulled off PCH and stopped in front of Dre's crib. We're told Dre asked him to move, and he did ... but cussed at the mogul as he did it. Dre pulled into his driveway, but the other driver kept yelling -- so Dre pulled out his phone to record video.

Our Dre sources claim the guy said, "Here we go again, another black guy with a gun." L.A. County Sheriffs tell us the motorist called 911 to report someone pulled a gun on him.

When deputies responded they put handcuffs on the Doc and searched him. We're told they found no gun, and let him go. However, the guy insisted on making a citizen's arrest, which means he filled out a report detailing his allegations.

The Sheriff's Dept. will forward that to the District Attorney ... who will decide whether there's a case. Dre was not physically arrested by deputies.

Florida Georgia Line Backstage Cop Trouble Police Pull Escort Detail

7/25/2016 11:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-florida-georgia-line-gettyFlorida Georgia Line dissed law enforcement working security at their concert ... according to an Iowa Sheriff who says the band banned officers, and then came crawling back for protection.

Jones County Sheriff Greg Graver tells TMZ he was headed backstage Saturday night at the Great Jones County Fair to discuss security protocol with the band when he was stopped by a crew member and told no uniformed officers were allowed backstage, per the band.

Sheriff Graver says he was told the country duo even threatened to pull the plug on the concert if they saw any cops.

Graver says midway through the performance, he was told the band wanted a police escort out of town after the show -- but he told them he wouldn't spend "one tax dollar assisting them" ... after being disrespected.

He says the band's management scrambled for other law enforcement agencies to provide the escort ... but they also told FGL to kick rocks. They ended up leaving on their own.

A similar incident went down with Wisconsin cops last week. We've reached out to the band ... no word back.

They did tweet, saying they have "nothing but love and respect for the police."
