Trump Star Vandal I'm Not Afraid of Donald Or Cops!

10/26/2016 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

James Otis is the guy who says he took a pickax to Donald Trump's star on the Walk of Fame, and he tells TMZ ... he's ready and willing to go to jail for the crime.

Otis was totally open with us about what he did and why. He says he attacked Trump's star around 5:45 AM Wednesday because he sees himself as a sort of modern-day Robin Hood.

As we told you, he planned to auction off pieces of the star and donate the money to the accusers' legal defense, because Trump has vowed to sue them. Otis, who considers himself an activist, says his main motivation was standing up for the alleged victims.

Of course, now that he's gone public in taking credit for vandalizing the star ... police are looking for him. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce says the plaque is worth $30k, so he's confessing to a felony.

Otis has a plan to deal with the heat.

Coolio Pleads Guilty to Gun Possession ... But Judge Digs His 'Do

10/26/2016 10:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Coolio pled guilty to possession of a concealed weapon but will avoid jail time ... TMZ has learned.

The rapper was in an L.A. court Wednesday where he was placed on 3 year probation and ordered to 45 days of community service. He must remain on his best behavior -- which includes not using or carrying a gun. If he does that for a year, the charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor.

TMZ broke the story ... Coolio was yanked off a plane back in September after TSA found the gun in a book bag ... one of his crew members tried to take the fall, but cops searched the bag and it wasn't hard to determine it was the rapper's.

But it wasn't all bad news in court ... before ending his hearing, the judge turned to the rapper and told him, "You've got a different little hair style ... it suits you."

Amber Rose Cancels Annual Halloween Bash ... I'm Too Pooped to Party

10/26/2016 9:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1025-amber-rose-halloween-bash-instagram-5Sorry, party people ... Amber Rose ain't down to rage for the 5th time in less than a week ... so she just pulled the plug on her Halloween event.

The party was supposed to happen Wednesday night at a mystery location -- Amber's invite only said "details coming." We're told Amber's waving the white flag because she's been going HAM since Friday when she turned 33.

She threw back-to-back house/pool parties Friday and Saturday, then did a full day at Disneyland with her son on Sunday ... and finally -- showing her range -- did a late night at Ace of Diamonds strip club on Monday.

We gotta say, partying is kinda Amber's brand, so it's odd she cancelled. Of course, she's got 5 more days to make good before Halloween.

10/26/2016 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026_karlie_kloss_rental_house_launchModel Karlie Kloss makes a living off her face, but it's her brains that helped her score a $10 million Beverly Hills home.

The crib's got 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, a sweet pool and even famous neighbors like the Beckhams, Jay Leno, Priscilla Presley and Brett Ratner.

We're told she stayed there for a week, which would put the average person about $12k in the hole.

It's unclear where he was going to hawk the stolen property.

Mark Harmon Hey Pooch ... Take a Bite Out of Crime ... Not the Crew!!!

10/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1025_Mark-and-Dave_twitter'NCIS' star Mark Harmon has a dog that attacked a crew member on set, but the dog has a pretty solid defense.

Sources connected with production tell TMZ, Harmon's dog is a 3-year-old pit bull mix that he rescued as a pup. His name is Dave.

Mark frequently brought Dave to the set, which was a dog-friendly environment. Other cast and crew members brought their dogs as well.

We're told a week ago one of the crew members was roughhousing with Dave ... something he did a lot, when the pooch became scared and attacked.

Our sources say the crew member needed 16 stitches to close the wounds, but returned to the set and is fine.

As for Dave, he hasn't been back to the set, but he's fine and, as we said, has a plausible defense.
