Desperate 911 Call

I'm Being Attacked ... By My Wife!

4/17/2015 3:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Lohan hysterically called 911 as his infant and toddler screamed in the background ... pleading for cops to come and arrest his wife. 

TMZ broke the story ... Kate Major Lohan allegedly pummeled Michael after she came home drunk Thursday. When cops arrived, she claimed Michael also hit her, and when cops couldn't see any injuries on her body, they say she began scratching herself. Kate was arrested

During the 911 call Michael ticks off Kate's rap sheet and her choice of drugs.  

The audio speaks for itself. It's like a soap opera.

Floyd Mayweather

... That Guy's a Joke

Floyd Mayweather doesn't give a single DAMN about Conor McGregor -- telling TMZ Sports the UFC fighter is a joke ... who's using his name to try to get some cheap publicity. 

Earlier this week, McGregor said he'd DESTROY Mayweather in a fight in less than 30 seconds -- because Floyd wouldn't be able to handle an MMA-style attack.

But sources close to Mayweather tell us ... Floyd "scoffed" when he saw the quotes and said, "I don't take that dude seriously. He's just trying to get himself some publicity."

Well, it worked.

Nikki Minaj posted a picture of the crazy diamond ring her BF Meek Mill gave her -- and then got Insta-blasted by Floyd Mayweather’s girlfriend ... who has the same ring!

Then Meek started ripping into Floyd's GF ... and then it was basically a bunch of “messy, messy ring mess.“ Y'know how THAT goes.tmz-on-tv-3

Kim Richards

Watching Reunion Show

Drove Her to Drink

4/17/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards Arrest DrinkingKim Richards just broke from stress when she was arrested early Thursday at the swanky Beverly Hills Hotel.

Sources very close to Kim as well as sources connected with "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" tell TMZ, she was unable to cope with some pretty terrible things going on in her life.

-- Her ex-husband Monty, who still lives with her, is dying of stage 4 cancer.

-- Her son Chad was released from UCLA Medical Center hours before the meltdown.

-- She's under financial stress. Contrary to reports, she's getting no money for child support.

-- Kim is trying to plan her daughter Brooke's official wedding. 

But the real trigger ... we're told earlier in the evening, Kim went to Brooke's house, where they watched the 3-part reunion. Kim had put it off because it was too upsetting, but she had to binge watch in order to fulfill her obligation to blog about the shows. And reliving what went down crushed her.

We're told Kim has been deeply upset over Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna. Kim believes Vanderpump had intentionally driven a wedge between her and sister Kyle. On the show, Vanderpump urged them to reconcile, but Kim claims off camera Vanderpump told Kyle that Kim didn't want her at Brooke's wedding ... which infuriated Kyle and deeply hurt Kim.

0417-kim-richards-swipe-splashOur sources say the cumulative stress was too much for Kim to bear. We're told she left Brooke's house and ended up alone at the Polo Lounge at the Bev Hills Hotel. It's unclear what if anything she drank there, but Kim has told friends a group of people at a table invited her to sit at around 1:30 AM, but the maitre d' wasn't having it and ordered Kim out.

As we reported, the hotel people say Kim got belligerent, wouldn't leave the restaurant, ended up in the bathroom where cops dragged her out. She was booked for public drunkenness, resisting arrest, trespass and battery on a cop.

Kate Major Lohan

Arrested for Attacking Michael Lohan

in Drunken Rage

Exclusive Details

0417-kate-major-mugshot

Kate Major Lohan had an alcohol relapse and then drunkenly attacked husband Michael Lohan ... so say cops who cuffed and arrested her. 

Law enforcement tells us Michael called Boca Raton police at 7:02 PM Thursday, claiming Kate had struck him. He told cops Kate came home after picking up some dinner and was visibly drunk. 

Michael says they squabbled, and it eventually turned physical. He told cops he wasn't wearing a shirt and she scratched him down his back. 

0417-michael-lohan-injury-tmz
According to the report, when police arrived Kate was visibly intoxicated and smelled of alcohol. The officer described her speech as slurred, her eyes blood shot and glossy, and her face red and flushed.  

The officer says Kate admitted she'd been drinking, then ranted about nonsense. Kate then claimed Michael accused her of cheating and provoked her into a fight.

Kate also claimed Michael grabbed her by the throat. But according to the officer, she had no visible injuries. And get this ... she then "scratched her throat area in an attempt to create red marks."

Officers hauled Kate in to the Palm Beach County Jail and booked her for battery.

She's currently in custody and is scheduled to go before a judge at 9:00 AM ET. 

Michael Lohan is actually blaming ex-wife Dina and their ongoing child custody dispute. Michael tells TMZ, "At the end of the day, this is all because of what Dina is doing in court ... It affects Kate too, and like anyone with a drug or alcohol problem, when they can't handle the stress, they resort to drinking."

Kate and Michael got married in November and have two kids together. She recently served a few months behind bars after a DUI arrest (following a fight with Michael) triggered a probation violation stemming from a battery case in 2012 in which she allegedly attacked a police officer.

Police were also called to the couple's home in February of last year for an alleged domestic incident.

'Love & Hip Hop' Star Jhonni Blaze

Co-Star Throws Shade ...

Helps Spread Stripper Fight Vid

4/16/2015 12:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

What do you think "Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Jhonni Blaze is more pissed about -- the fact a video of her catching an ass whupping is going viral ... or the fact one of her co-stars helped spread it?

The video is from Jhonni's stripper days back in Houston ... a few years ago, and shows her in an epic fight with another stripper. All you need to know is Jhonni (who used to bang Drake) is the one on the ground ... so the clip is far from flattering to her.

As for why the video just surfaced ... Jhonni recently talked smack about being a badass on the 'LHHNY' reunion show -- so a fan of Moniece Slaughter (Jhonni's nemesis) dug up the clip to shame JB. Moniece was delighted and even reposted the clip ... though she eventually deleted it.

In the end, it doesn't really matter why -- it's a great video. Watch and enjoy.

Shelly Sterling

It Wasn't About the Money

... I Wanted to Stick It to Stiviano!

breaking news

0415_shelly_sterling_v_stiviano_TMZShelly Sterling says she didn't go after V. Stiviano for the money -- SHE WANTED JUSTICE -- and says she plans to give away every single cent she won in her crushing court victory to a charity. 

Our sources say ... Shelly was "out for blood" from the start -- and really wanted to put the screws to Stiviano for all the crap she put her family through. 

In fact, Shelly told the Associated Press ... her lawsuit was about getting even with Stiviano who had "harmed" her in so many ways.

Of course, Sterling won a $2.6 million judgment against Stiviano -- ordering her to fork over the keys to her $1.8 million condo AND $800,000 in cash. 

Sterling says she doesn't even want the money -- 'cause she's a billionaire -- and to prove it, she's giving every cent to a worthy charity.

How benevolent. 

Dina Lohan

Hey Michael, Pay Up

... Or Get Locked Up

4/15/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0414-dina-michael-lohan-tmz-02Michael Lohan needs a ride to the bank ... because the Florida judge threatening jail time has suspended his license until he shells out more than $16k in back child support to Dina Lohan.

Sources close to Dina tell TMZ, a judge called Michael on the carpet for cruising around Boca Raton in his flashy Maserati while he owes thousands. The judge revoked Michael's passport and stripped him of his driving privileges ... until he pays up. 

We're told Michael phoned in during the hearing and promised the check's in the mail. The judge has heard that line before, and warned if the check doesn't come by April 24th, it's off to jail.

0414-CAR-SUB-WATERMARK-dina-michael-lohan-tmz-02Sources close to Michael say a deadbeat dad wouldn't buy a $50k Raptor truck for his son ... and insists he pays his kids directly because he believes Dina just spends the money on herself.  

Michael gave the judge proof he's bypassed Dina with the payments, but apparently the judge was not persuaded and ordered him to cut a check STAT. 

The Lohans definitely never disappoint.

Dennis Rodman

BRUTALLY FIRES BIZ MANAGER

'She's A Total Fraud!'

4/14/2015 10:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0414-dennis-rodman-tmz-03Dennis Rodman didn't just terminate his ex-business manager -- HE HUMILIATED HER -- saying she's a total failure who LIED about being a Harvard grad and may have stolen from him ... though she calls BS. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... The Worm's lawyer Bradford Cohen just sent a SCATHING letter to Peggy King ... officially terminating her as Rodman's financial lady and demanding she hand over all of her records. 

But the letter gets deeply personal ... here's the point-by-point breakdown:

1) You're fired
2) We think you may have stolen a ton of money from Dennis
3) You were supposed to pay bills for Dennis that went unpaid
4) We think you FAKED your background ... and lied about going to Harvard.

In the letter, Cohen states ... "Although you claim to have a graduate degree from Harvard, it is more like your resume could be a study in fictional writing at Harvard."

Boom.

But we spoke with King who says Rodman is the REAL liar ... claiming she NEVER once touted herself as a Harvard grad.

She also tells TMZ Sports that Dennis is nothing more than an "alcoholic drunk" who's ruining what used to be a "good relationship" for no good reason. 

"The whole letter is crazy and bogus. I've been with him through thick and thin."

Threatens to Call Cops

update_graphic_red_bar

8:20 AM PST -- A rep for Dina Lohan tells us Dina has denied selling any of Lindsay's stuff. 

Update_Graphic_Bar_Grey_Gray

Lindsay Lohan's mother is unloading her daughter's prized possessions with an online flea market -- which Lindsay's threatening to shut down with a little help from cops ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us she recently got wind of Dina Lohan's scheme -- selling off Lindsay's clothing, furniture, artwork, etc ... on the Internet and directly to friends ... all without LiLo's permission. We're told she's hawking items from the massive stockpile of stuff Lindsay moved into Dina's house during the Oprah docuseries.

It may seem like a bunch of junk, but Lindsay says it's worth millions. As for Dina's motivation -- we're told she thinks anything left behind in HER garage ... is hers to sell. Linds thinks Dina's just desperate to pay bills. 

We broke the story -- Lindsay's already pissed at Dina for negotiating a deal to be on "Celebrity Big Brother UK" ... and our sources say this fire sale might be the last straw.

Lindsay is urgently trying to get friends to go scoop up her loot before it's all gone -- but if that doesn't work ... we're told she'll get police involved.

Buy now!

My Mom Comes to England

Off With Her Head!!!

4/12/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0410_lindsay_dina_lohan_tmzLindsay Lohan believes there's only room for one Lohan in England, and that's why she's waging war against her mother's plan to move there for UK TV fame and fortune.

We've learned Dina is in the final stages of negotiations to appear on "Celebrity Big Brother" in the UK. It's a big show there ... Gary Busey won last season.

Dina was so excited, she called Lindsay Thursday to say how great it was going to be that they could spend time together.

We're told Lindsay flipped out and began screaming at her mom, saying she had no right to come to England, where Lindsay went to escape. They fought on the phone and then fired angry texts back and forth.

Lindsay doesn't want Dina in England, partly because she feels her mom is a bad influence and partly because she's just bad luck. Lindsay says she's doing well and doesn't want it screwed up.

As for Dina, she feels Lindsay has no right to exile her from England.

Here's what we don't get. Why can't Dina come to England and stay away from Lindsay. Too easy.

Bobby Flay's Wife

$5k a Month ... Are You Kidding?

EXCLUSIVE

Bobby Flay Spousal Support

Bobby Flay is more than happy to pay his soon to be ex-wife Stephanie March spousal support ... thing is, she says it's chump change so she's fighting him.

As TMZ reported the divorcing couple signed a prenup when they married in 2005. Sources connected with the couple and familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the prenup provides Stephanie gets $5,000 a month for 5 years.

We're told the "Law and Order: SVU" star is incredulous because her camp believes Bobby's net worth is north of $20 million, and Stephanie believes she was an important part of his success.

And there's something even more galling to Stephanie. We're told the prenup provides Bobby -- who filed for divorce Friday -- the marital house, valued at around $8 million. The prenup only requires Bobby to pay her $1 million to buy her out of the house. She also gets $50k so she can pack up her stuff and move.

Our sources say Stephanie's lawyers are challenging the prenup, and they're negotiating with Bobby's legal team. The likely outcome is a settlement where she'll get something more than what the prenup provides.

Mariah Carey

Fires Back at Publicist

I Dumped You First!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Mariah Carey insists her publicist didn't quit her ... she canned the publicist.

TMZ obtained a letter which Mariah claims she wrote to famed publicist Cindi Berger, who has repped the singer for 15 years.

Mariah says in the letter, "I've done a lot of soul-searching this past year ... and I found myself asking if I was truly employing a healthy perspective (not to sound too Oprah about it all :)."

The singer goes on, "So I think it's time for us to take a break Cindi," saying she wants to "bring a fresh approach to this new phase in my career."

We reached out to Cindi Berger's office, and they say they never received the letter ... ever. Sources connected with the publicist say she's the one who decided to end the relationship with Mariah.

Things have gotten bitter fast. Mariah ended her letter by offering to put an ad in one of the Hollywood trade magazines honoring Cindi for winning a "Women of Power" award. Mariah's new manager, Stella Bulochnikov, tells us, they're pissed at Cindi because they think she leaked the story she quit Mariah, so they're not going forward with the ad.

"Love & Hip Hop" got nothin' on them.
