Benji Madden Sues Designer for Half Mil You Jacked Up Our Remodel!!!

12/15/2017 4:02 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Benji Madden hired a remodeling crew to overhaul the house where he and Cameron Diaz live, but after what he call shoddy, overpriced work ... the rock star is suing.

The Good Charlotte member says he made a deal with Ryan Silverman and The Wooden Palate in Spring 2015 to remodel his spare bedroom, kitchen, laundry room, deck and a man cave.

According to the docs ... workers finished the project in October 2016 -- at which point Madden had forked over $478,509 -- but he said the job "was done improperly and would have to be redone" ... especially the man cave.

In the suit, Benji says custom built doors for the wine cellar had to be repaired, along with other defects, to the tune of an extra $78k. All in all, Madden wants more than $500k back in damages and a big refund ... plus his legal fees.

We reached out to Silverman ... no word back yet.

Tupac Murder Weapon Found Day After Infamous Rival Was Killed

12/15/2017 3:54 PM PST
Exclusive Details

The gun that killed Tupac Shakur turned up in Compton just ONE day after one of Tupac's biggest street rivals was killed in gang violence.

It sounds like the most bizarre coincidence, but yes ... Orlando Anderson -- a known member of the Southside Crips -- was killed in a gang shootout, in Compton, on May 29, 1998. As TMZ first reported ... the .40 caliber Glock used to shoot and kill Tupac was found May 30.

Now here's what makes this so remarkable. Anderson is the man Tupac and co. famously beat down in the MGM Grand just a few hours before Pac was killed in Las Vegas. One longstanding theory is Anderson and other Crips murdered him in revenge.

Anderson was even named a suspect in Tupac's death, though he was never charged.

As we told you, the Tupac murder weapon was found in a Compton backyard where a Crip's girlfriend lived. According to an LAPD document, that gang member was in Las Vegas with Anderson the night Tupac was killed.

Connecting the dots: Tupac beats up Anderson ... Tupac is killed ... Anderson is killed ... Tupac murder weapon pops up in a yard connected to Anderson's friend.

All that being said -- Vegas cops can't recall ever taking custody of the handgun and, as we know, no one's ever been charged in Tupac's death.

Exclusive Details

The abode Drake Bell and Josh Peck called home on their popular Nickelodeon show just hit the market ... and it's got plenty of room.

The San Fernando Valley crib show producers used for exterior shots is up for a cool $1.85 million. It's got 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, a tennis court and a pool.

Drake and Josh shared a bedroom on TV ... but the real crib has enough space for both brothers, their parents and little sister -- played by Miranda Cosgrove -- to each have their own room.

XXXTentacion's straight-laced look -- button down shirt, with his locks pulled up and off his face -- was NOT enough to sway the judge, but it made for one helluva mug shot.

TMZ obtained the pic XXX took when he was booked into Miami-Dade County Jail Friday morning. We broke the story ... the judge locked up the rapper Friday morning following a hearing in his domestic violence case.

Carrie Fisher Traumatic 'Last Jedi' Scene Hard for Family to Watch

12/15/2017 11:27 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Carrie Fisher's final 'Star Wars' scenes hit too close to home for the Fisher family ... TMZ has learned.

Carrie's brother, Todd Fisher, tells us the family recently saw 'Last Jedi' and struggled watching General Leia in one particular scene ... which was extremely traumatic for the character. We don't want to say anything more than that with the movie just being released Thursday night.

We're told the family had actually seen an early cut of the film while Carrie was still alive. They saw the scene in question back then, and say it wasn't nearly as gut-wrenching. Again we'll avoid spoilers and leave it at that.

The family did enjoy the tribute to Carrie at the end of the flick. Although Lucasfilm has already announced Carrie won't be in 'Episode IX' ... we're told the family hopes Leia will continue to live on in the 'Star Wars' world in some spirit.

They're also not opposed to a CGI Leia like we saw in 'Rogue One.'

Ray Allen Accuser Drops Stalking Case

12/15/2017 11:09 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The man who accused Ray Allen of making violent threats against him after their alleged relationship went sour is backing off -- he's dropped his case against the NBA star, TMZ Sports has learned. 

As we previously reported, Bryant Coleman got a temporary restraining order against Allen in Florida after telling the court Ray sent men after him and made violent threats over the phone. 

Coleman had previously told TMZ Sports he believed his life was in danger. 

Ray had always maintained the allegations were B.S. -- and that Coleman is the real bad guy ... who catfished him in a scheme to get private information from the NBA star. 

Now, we've obtained court documents which show Coleman has voluntarily dropped his restraining order -- though he doesn't explain why the change of heart.

Ray's attorney, David Markus, tells us, "We are pleased Coleman voluntarily dismissed the injunction and false claims he made against Ray Allen."

"Ray has never met Coleman. Ray Allen has never spoken with Coleman. Ray has never threatened him or anyone. He wants nothing to do with him and is looking forward to putting this matter behind him."

Michael Costello Actresses Prepping for Black Dress Award Show Protests

12/15/2017 11:13 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Fashion designer Michael Costello says stylists have cleaned him out of black dresses ... which is hard evidence a silent protest of sexual harassment in Hollywood is going down at the Golden Globes.

We spoke to Costello from his L.A. store, where he told us black designs flew off his racks in the past few days ... in the immediate wake of Monday's Golden Globes nominations. 

There's a report more than 2 dozen women will be wearing black in solidarity, and Costello wasn't shy about name dropping some of his recent A-list clientele, including Meryl.

Costello doesn't think black will stop at the Globes carpet either. Oscars so white? Not this year.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Wedding Date Has Checkered Past

12/15/2017 10:41 AM PST

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle DID not choose their wedding date for any historical significance ... that is unless they're both huge fans of the Kennedys or the Buttafuocos. Ya never know.

We did some research, and the May 19 date of the Royal nuptials has a past that could be labeled rather macabre. It's the date Amy Fisher shot and severely wounded Joey Buttafuoco's wife in 1992.

It's also the day the first person died from the bird flu, along with being the death date of T.E. Lawrence and Jackie Kennedy Onassis. And speaking of her -- May 19, 1962 is the date Marilyn Monroe famously performed a sultry version of "Happy Birthday" for JFK ... with the First Lady in attendance.

May 19 also saw an infamous beheading and the jailing of an Italian movie star. You get the picture.

One positive note: Joey Ramone was born that day.Check out more below!!!

XXXTentacion Sent to Jail!!! Facing 7 NEW Felonies

12/15/2017 7:49 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

XXXTentacion was sent straight to jail Friday morning after prosecutors slapped him with 7 new charges, all felonies, in his 2016 domestic violence case.

The new counts include different degrees of witness tampering and witness harassment. Prosecutors believe he coerced the ex-girlfriend he's accused of beating. He was already facing charges of battery against a pregnant woman and false imprisonment.

As we reported ... X filed a document earlier this month allegedly signed by the woman and stating she no longer wanted him to be prosecuted.

At Friday's hearing in Miami-Dade County, the judge said he had violated his bond from his initial arrest ... so he was immediately sent to jail, and is being held without bail.

He'll likely remain behind bars until trial -- and is now facing decades in prison, at minimum, if convicted.
