Mel Gibson Baby Mama Oksana Grigorieva Loose Lips Cost Her a Bundle

8/11/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0810-mel-gibson-oksana-tmzMel Gibson's baby mama, Oksana Grigorieva, just got word from a California appeals court ... she made one of the worst business decisions in the history of business ... because they just ruled she's only entitled to 1/60 of what she could have gotten from him had she just shut her trap.

The California Court of Appeals just dropped the hammer, saying Oksana screwed herself when she went on Howard Stern in 2013 and claimed domestic abuse at the hands of Gibson. The actor was on the hook for $750,000 -- a settlement he had struck with her -- but had only shelled out $250,000.

The agreement said she would forfeit the balance if she blabbed about her allegations, and the court said that's exactly what she did when she went on Stern. So, Mel does not have to pay the $500k balance.

Mind you ... Mel had agreed to pay Oksana $15 million if she kept those horrible audiotapes secret, but she changed her mind thinking she could get even more and disavowed the deal. Instead of $15 mil, she eventually struck a deal for $750k ... and that has now been whittled down to $250k.

Maybe she's just bad at math. 

UFC's Julianna Pena No One Cares About Ronda Anymore ... Or Her Fat Arms!

8/11/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UFC star Julianna Pena just RIPPED into Ronda Rousey -- saying, "No one cares about [her] and her fat arms anymore."

"She's like the emperor in no clothes," Pena added ... "She's broken a little bit."

So, what set Pena off?

We asked her about Amanda Nunes saying she would gladly fight her ... if she couldn't book Ronda. And while Pena says she understands from a business perspective, she thinks Ronda's days as the top dog in UFC are over.

As for Ronda's long-awaited return, Pena says she's heard rumblings that RR will fight again before the end of the year ... but adds, "I'll believe it when I see it."

Until then, Pena says it's only a matter of time until she crushes Nunes and takes the belt.

"They can delay me but they can't deny me."

Exclusive Details

0810_scottie_Larsa-Pippen_Christian-Laettner_getty_twitter_2Scottie Pippen and his wife are FURIOUS at Christian Laettner -- claiming he still hasn't paid them back the hundreds of thousands of dollars he owes them ... and they want to collect, NOW. 

Around 2007, Pippen invested a ton of money with Laettner and his partners to buy a stake in the Memphis Grizzlies ... but when the deal fizzled, he never got his money back.

Pippen sued Laettner and his partners and was awarded a $2.5 million judgment -- but has NOT received the full amount.

Enter Larsa Pippen ... who took the beef public this week -- tweeting at Laettner, "Hey @laettnerbball are you ever gonna pay us back homie?"

"It's crazy you've been f***ing us around forever @laettnerbball. Homie how do u sleep at night."

Sources connected to the case tell us Laettner still owes at least $600,000 to the Pippens. 

Yeah, we'd be pissed too.


The Rock I'll Show You Who's Boss on 'Fast & Furious'

8/10/2016 3:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Rock just posted a video showing him as the undisputed king of the set on "Fast 8" ... with Vin Diesel nowhere in sight.

The video was shot as production is coming to a close, and it's not coincidental it was filmed hours after Vin Diesel told everyone "Daddy's gone" and left '8' in the dust.  

Rock also posted this ... "And like with any team -- that's a family -- there's gonna be conflict. Family is gonna have differences of opinion and fundamental core beliefs. To me, conflict can be a good thing, when its followed by great resolution. I was raised on healthy conflict and welcome it."

As we reported, there was no "great resolution" after Vin confronted Rock Tuesday in Rock's trailer.

Vin Diesel Sayonara, 'Fast 8' Beef with Rock Rolls On

8/10/2016 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0810-vin-diesel-tmz-02Vin Diesel got the hell out of Dodge ... minutes after wrapping his final scene in "Fast 8" ... and we've learned his feud with The Rock is NOT resolved.

Production sources tell TMZ ... Vin finished filming his scenes, with The Rock, no less, at 1 AM Wednesday and almost as soon as the director called cut Vin gathered everyone and said he was leaving. During his speech he said, "Daddy's gone" ... Vin thinks of himself as the father figure on set.

Our sources say earlier in the day, Vin confronted Rock over the disparaging comments he made about his male co-stars. Although Rock didn't name names, we know he was referring to Vin.

We're told Vin went to Rock's trailer and demanded to know why he was talking trash. The 2 spoke privately inside but we're told they did not squash their beef. One source intimately familiar with the actors tells us it's all about big egos.

As for Vin, he didn't leave anyone high and dry. We're told after shooting his last scene the studio cleared him to leave.

As for The Rock ... he shoots his last scene Thursday. The movie is a week away from being fully wrapped.


'LHHA' Joseline Hernandez My Co-Star Tried Running Me Over ... Keep Her Away!!!

8/10/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0809-joseline-hernandez-tommie-lee-tmz-instagramJoseline Hernandez claims her new "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" co-star, Tommie Lee, tried running her down with her car and threatened to kill her, and a judge must have believed her ... because Tommie's now been ordered to stay more than a football field away from her.

The way we hear the story ... Tommie Lee tried mowing Joseline down not once, but three times, while she was walking to an ATL store. We're told Tommie Lee got out of the car and threatened to shoot Joseline in the face, but alternatively would get some goons to do her in.

They fight on the show, but running people over is a whole other thing, so a judge has now ordered Tommie Lee to stay 500 yards away.

As for how they'll co-exist on the show ... it just wrapped for the season, so there's a good cool-down period.

Amber Heard Cried, Yelled, Screamed ... You're Not Taking My Depo

8/9/2016 11:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0809-amber-heard-tmz-02Amber Heard refused to go under oath Saturday for her deposition, crying, yelling and screaming in defiance ... so claim Johnny Depp's lawyers, who want the judge to call BS on her and dismiss the domestic violence case. 

TMZ broke the story, Amber showed up around 11:50 AM Saturday for a 10 AM deposition. She was there until around 9 PM but never even walked in the deposition room, where lawyers, a court reporter and videographer were waiting.

According to new legal docs filed by Johnny's lawyer, Laura Wasser, Amber repeatedly refused to submit to questioning. According to the docs, at 2 PM Wasser and company wanted Amber to leave the adjoining office where she had been waiting and enter the conference room so the depo could begin.

According to the docs, Amber refused to enter. At 5:30 PM, Wasser again requested Amber to enter the depo room and again she refused. She never went in the room, instead, according to Wasser, she began crying and carrying on in the adjoining office.

Wasser says Amber also refused to turn over documents she had requested.

Johnny's team now wants one of 2 things ... either an order prohibiting Amber from testifying when the case goes to trial next week, or an outright dismissal of her domestic violence case

'Fast & Furious' Feud Rock vs. Vin Diesel Secret Meeting to Quash Beef

8/9/2016 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0809-the-rock-vin-diesel-TMZ-03The Rock's rant about unprofessional male co-stars was targeted at Vin Diesel, TMZ has learned, and the 2 had a secret meeting on the "Fast 8" set Tuesday to hash things out.

Production sources tell TMZ ... when the Rock went nuts on social media Monday night, claiming certain male co-stars were not stand up guys and too "chicken s***" to confront him ... he was referring to Vin.

We're told The Rock has butted heads with Vin during the production, in part because V.D. is a producer and has made decisions that didn't sit well with the former wrestling champ.

Our sources say The Rock and Vin had a meeting on the Atlanta set mid-day Tuesday ... partly because tensions were running so high it was almost impossible to shoot scenes. We do not know if they resolved their issues.

As we reported, almost the entire cast is angry at Rock for causing a stir just a week and a half before filming ends.


Donald Trump Cracks Hillary Clinton Assassination Joke

8/9/2016 1:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Donald Trump just made a shocking wisecrack during a speech, in which he mused Hillary Clinton was out to abolish the Second Amendment but the Second Amendment people know how to stop her.

Trump spoke at a North Carolina rally when he made the remark.

Clinton's campaign manager just fired back, "This is simple -- what Trump is saying is dangerous. A person seeking to be President of the United States should not suggest violence in any way."

Trump's campaign said, "2nd Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power."

The Rock 'Fast & Furious' Actors Enraged Over Smack Talk

8/9/2016 10:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0809-fast-8-cast-INSTAGRAM-01The Rock's male co-stars in "Fast 8" are all pissed at him for obliquely calling some of them out as candy ass divas ... and they think his tirade is all about ego ... so say production sources on the set.

Our sources say all of the male co-stars are shooting Tuesday -- The Rock, Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Kurt Russell, Tyrese, Ludacris, Scott Eastwood and others. We're told they are all getting hounded by people who want to know who Rock was putting on blast. 

Rock said on social media Monday, "My female co-stars are always amazing and I love 'em. My male co-stars however are a different story.  Some conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals, while others don't.  The ones that don't are too chicken s*** to do anything about it anyway. Candy asses."

We're told the male co-stars think Rock was out of line to talk crap, but given that he did they think it's unforgivable he wasn't specific because now they're all suspects.

Our sources say the co-stars -- male and female -- are especially upset because filming wraps in a week and a half and, as one put it, "This is a hell of a way to end it."

One source who is embedded in the production tells us there have been various conflicts because of "extreme egos" among most of the top actors, with the help of their agents and lawyers. But we're told none of the actors felt the public criticism was appropriate.

And we're told The Rock has not said anything today on set to clarify his remarks and the actors still don't know to whom he was referring. Our sources eliminate Tyrese and Luda, but all of the others are possibilities.

One source with knowledge of the situation tells TMZ, we can expect something on social media today that will clarify things.

Amber Heard I Have Medical Proof Johnny Abused Me Before

8/9/2016 7:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0806-amber-heard-tmz-04Amber Heard plans to put Johnny Depp on the stand if her domestic violence/divorce case goes to trial, and she also plans to show the judge evidence she sought medical care in the past for a prior alleged domestic violence incident.

Amber's exhibit list includes a 2014 pic of her holding pills, and it appears her lawyer will try to connect the meds to domestic violence. The exhibit list also references medical records relating to a prior alleged act of domestic violence.

She also plans to submit videos and audios of Johnny interacting with her at their home.

Amber's lawyer, Samantha Spector, submitted their witness lists, which includes her good friend Raquel Pennington and Raquel's boyfriend, Joshua Drew ... both of whom were in the apartment building on May 21, the night she says Johnny brutalized her.

She's also calling iO Tillett Wright, the woman with whom Amber was on the phone during the incident.

As for putting Johnny on the stand ... Amber's lawyer wants to ask about the incident on the 21st as well as alleged prior domestic violence incidents.

Johnny plans to call 23 witnesses, but Amber's list is much shorter ... 7.

Johnny Depp Slew of Witnesses in Amber Heard Trial ... And Secret Photo

8/9/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0808_amber_johnny-tmxJohnny Depp is locked and loaded for his trial next month ... his lawyers have submitted a list of nearly 2 dozen witnesses to support his claim ... Amber Heard is lying when she says he brutalized her.

Among the witnesses ...

-- The 2 responding officers on May 21 -- the night Amber says Johnny attacked her. Both officers will testify they saw no evidence of injury nor was anything broken in the loft.

--  5 concierges in the building, all of whom saw Amber between May 21 and May 27, and all of whom have said in depositions they saw no injuries on Amber's face.

-- 2 security guards who were in the unit on May 21, who will testify Johnny did not strike Amber.

-- Jodi Gottlieb, Amber's publicist. We're told Depp's lawyer, Laura Wasser, tried taking Gottlieb's deposition but she was not available. And Gottlieb is important because she was allegedly present during discussions between Amber and her lawyer.

-- And then there's Hilda Vargas, the housekeeper. According to the witness list, "Ms. Vargas will testify about a discovery in the home." The documents do not describe the discovery.

-- Of course, Amber is on the witness list. She will be called as a hostile witness.

There are also a number of exhibits listed, including Amber's domestic violence arrest report from the State of Washington and documents from the Australian dog smuggling case. We're told Depp's lawyers will press the point that Amber lied when she said she didn't know it was illegal to bring the dogs into the country.

And finally, this ... a mysterious photo. Johnny's legal docs explain, "For privacy reasons, this exhibit is being served on petitioners [Amber and team] and will be supplied to the court at the time of hearing."
