Amber Heard 'Ear-Witnesses' Say She's a Liar Johnny Wasn't Near Her

5/31/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527_amber_heard_johnny_depp_gettyAmber Heard screamed to Johnny Depp in the middle of their argument last week, "Stop hitting me!!!" Problem is ... when she screamed Johnny was more than 6 yards away -- so claim 2 witnesses.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ, 2 security guards -- Jerry Judge and Sean Bett -- were standing in the entryway inside Johnny and Amber's apartment unit, giving them space during the argument, when out of nowhere they heard Amber scream.  

The guards say "within a second" they bolted into the living area and saw Johnny in the kitchen and Amber on the couch in the living room -- it's an open floor plan. Both guards say Johnny was at least 20 feet away from her.

We're told, according to Johnny, both he and Amber knew the guards were in the entryway and the scream was a badly executed attempted setup.  

The guards -- both of whom are expected to testify next month during the restraining order trial -- also say throughout Johnny and Amber's 15-month marriage, she was the one who flew into rages ... screaming at him, throwing bottles, and charging him. They claim they frequently had to pull her off Johnny.

Amber claims her alleged injuries were caused when Johnny hurled an iPhone at her. The 2 guards support what the responding cops say ... she had no visible injuries. Amber claims there was broken glass on the floor and even submitted photos in her legal docs, but the guards insist there was no broken glass, and the cops say nothing was amiss.

EXCLUSIVE

Victoria's Secret model Shanina Shaik is throwing shade at her ex Tyson Beckford for fighting her fiancé DJ Ruckus' outside a NYC nightclub.

Shanina touched down in Miami and declared she hasn't spoken to Beckford in the last year ... so she's puzzled why he's still got beef. We broke the story ... Shanina's current guy and her ex brawled a couple weeks ago

Shanina's on Tyson's turf down in MIA, but explained how she plans to avoid any more drama. And then she poured salt in his breakup wound by posting this pic.

Derek Jeter Trolled By Bette Midler?

5/31/2016 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0531-jeter-midler-tmz-getty-01So, this might be the weirdest and most random trolling ever ... courtesy of The Divine Miss M. 

For some reason, Bette Midler decided to roast Derek Jeter over the weekend, posting this on Twitter:

"Derek Jeter is finally settling down & getting married. That’s probably gonna cut back on his dating, though."

Uncalled for, right? 

We get it, Bette likes to post zingers on Twitter. But based on some quick Google searching, it doesn't appear the two are friends ... so, it seems like it's kind of an out of the blue crack.

So far, no response from Jeter -- unlike Kim Kardashian who took Bette to task when she was in Midler's Twitter crosshairs earlier this year. 

Weird, right?  

Johnny Manziel Fires Back After NY Car Ambush 'Shouldn't Have Came At Me Like That'

5/31/2016 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny Manziel says he's "hashing it out" with the owner of a NY luxury car rental company who ambushed him in the street Friday night ... but says the guy "shouldn't have come at me like that."

The ambush went down on Friday -- when Wayne (the owner of Precision Concierge) tracked down the QB and confronted him over an expensive Mercedes he allegedly rented and then wrecked in L.A. 

Wayne told TMZ Sports ... Manziel had promised to pay for the wrecked ride -- but never did. So, Wayne found him in Manhattan on Friday and tried to get answers right from Johnny himself. 

Fast forward to Monday night ... Johnny says the two sides are talking, but he's clearly not happy with the way things went down. 

Madylin Sweeten Sued Trashing My Name Should Cost Her $1.5 Mil

5/29/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0520-madilyn-sweeten-twitter-01"Everybody Loves Raymond" star Madylin Sweeten dragged a soap opera creator's name through the mud ... according to him, and now he wants her to cough up $1.5 million.

In the suit, Bryan James says Sweeten smeared his name and business when she sued him ... claiming he duped her into investing in "Youthful Daze" ... an Internet soap.

James is asking the court to dismiss Madylin's lawsuit, and he wants the $1.5 mil for damages to his business and reputation.

He tells us Sweeten only sued him in the first place because she didn't like working with him. 

Wee Man Disses Justin Bieber You're No Skateboarder!

5/28/2016 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Get ready for some epic tiny man beef ... 'cause world famous skater Wee Man is taking SHOTS at Justin Bieber's skateboarding skills.

Wee Man is a skate aficionado who's been rollin' with the "Jackass" guys for years ... so, when we saw him cruisin' through LAX with his board, we had to ask what he thought of Bieber's skills. 

"He's like a fruitcake singer ... how can he be a skater??"  

FYI, "fruitcake" has different meanings in different circles -- unclear how Wee Man meant it. 

Still, might not be too late to say sorry ... 

Johnny Depp, Amber Heard A Dog House Divided

5/27/2016 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527_amber_johnny_boo_pistol_splash-2

We've solved the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard dog mystery.

We now know each owned one dog, which is why the judge only referenced Amber's dog in Friday's court order. 

You'll recall the pooches made headlines a year ago when they smuggled the two Yorkies into Australia. Amber could have gone to prison, but ended up doing a PSA on why smuggling is a bad idea and they got off scot-free.

Turns out it was a blended family. Amber owns Pistol and Johnny owns Boo. When Amber went to court asking for her domestic violence restraining order -- which she got -- she also asked for an order requiring Johnny to stay clear of Pistol. The judge declined, saying Pistol was in no real danger.

We're told Amber is in possession of both dogs because Johnny's out of town, but she'll happily give him Boo when he returns.

Amber Heard Claims Domestic Violence Gets Restraining Order Against Johnny Depp

5/27/2016 9:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-amber-heard-injury-tmzAmber Heard showed up in court with a bruise on her face claiming Johnny Depp physically assaulted her and she's the victim of repeated domestic violence ... and the judge issued a restraining order requiring Johnny to stay 100 yards away from her.

Sources connected to Johnny are calling BS, saying Amber "is an affront to real victims of domestic violence."

The judge also gave Amber the right to live in the family home, but rejected a request to protect at least one of their dogs from Johnny.  Amber asked for $50k a month in spousal support, but the judge rejected that request.  And the judge declined to order Johnny into anger management. 

Heard showed up with her lawyer, Samantha Spector, armed with photos showing various bruises ... she claims Depp inflicted various times during their marriage. 

We obtained this pic ... showing Amber with a bruise around her eye, which she says Depp inflicted Saturday night. Heard claims the pic was taken shortly after she was allegedly struck.

She claims Depp smashed his iPhone on her face.

Amber claims during the alleged attack, Johnny shattered various objects in the apartment. She says she was on the phone with a friend during the fight, and when Johnny grabbed her phone she screamed to her friend, "Call the cops!" The friend called 911 and cops came to the residence.

Amber says when cops arrived Johnny had already fled, so they took a report.

We're told cops told Amber they would find Johnny and arrest him if she gave a statement about the alleged violence, but she refused. Officers told her if she changed her mind she could call them. 

0527-amber-heard-police-call-detective-card-LAPD-TMZ-04

Cops gave Amber this business card and told her to call if she wants to press charges. As far as we know, she has not gone back to the cops.

Heard claims after he allegedly hit her he offered her money to stay quiet, but instead she filed for divorce first thing Monday morning.

Amber says she has video of one of the beatings.  

It's interesting ... she's asking for a temporary restraining order claiming there's an immediate threat of harm, but Depp has been out of town since Wednesday promoting his new movie. Depp's lawyer, Laura Wasser, appeared on his behalf.

TMZ broke the story ... 3 days after Depp's mom died, Amber filed for divorce. And one week after his mom died, she's claiming domestic violence. 

As for why Depp and his people are calling BS ... first she never filed a police report, and she posted Instagram pics after the alleged beating and never showed any injury.

Miesha Tate Ronda's Emotionally Unstable

5/27/2016 6:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0527-miesha-tate-ronda-rousey-TMZ-01Miesha Tate says Ronda Rousey is "somewhat emotionally unstable" -- and says it explains why the UFC legend went off on Paige VanZant at a party last month. 

Tate appeared on Rush Fight Club on SiriusXM -- and went off about the issue when asked about the April encounter, when Rousey cussed out PVZ for congratulating Holly Holm after UFC 193. 

"I think Ronda is somewhat emotionally unstable and I think that's been characteristic for a long time," Tate said.

"Doesn't mean she fights any worse for it. I'm not knocking her as an athlete but emotionally she's just got some things that are a little bit strange and I think that that was one of them."

Tate says the incident brought her even closer with VanZant -- despite the fact Tate says she would've handled the encounter in a much different way. 

"This is why I feel like I identify with Paige more. She's so kind and when this whole thing happened she was like, 'We're emotional beings and hopefully I can make it right with Ronda,' and she's still such a sweetheart but I'm not that way."

"When Ronda does things like that to me I'm just like, 'No, eff you.' I'm not gonna bow down and not say how I feel."

Johnny Depp Divorce His Family 'Hated' Amber

5/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-03Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's relationship was extremely bitter due to a full-blown feud between his family and Amber ... and this, we're told, is the backdrop for what is already an acrimonious divorce.

Multiple sources connected to the ex-couple tell us, Johnny's 2 teenage kids, his 2 sisters and his mom "hated" Amber, and openly discussed it.  We're told they talked about how Amber would rail on Johnny and "treat him like crap."

Earlier this year, Johnny moved his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, into the L.A. compound where he and Amber lived ... and the tension was palpable. We're told mom often told friends she thought Amber was using Johnny for his money and fame, and to boost her own career.

We're also told before Betty Sue moved in, she only saw her son once from the time he married Amber, and both Betty Sue and Johnny blame her for keeping them apart so she'd have full control.  

Our sources say Amber had 2 closed door sit-downs with Johnny's mom after she moved in, and after both meetings Betty Sue railed on her daughter-in-law, calling her a "terrible person."

We broke the story ... Amber filed for divorce Monday ... 3 days after Betty Sue died. There was no prenup, and Amber wants spousal support.

T-Pain was live streaming his own game of 'Doom' on Twitch ... when he spilled some tea about Weezy and Birdman's days playing 'Madden' when they were all in the studio.

He claims they'd wager $10,000 per game -- and that wasn't even the bizarre part. Check out his description of HOW they played the games. It's good to be rich.

Ironic that they used to throw around that kinda cash -- on a video game -- considering the current state of their financial relationship
