Mariah Carey Packer Went Berserk on Dancer ... Banned Him From Her Shows

10/27/2016 5:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027-mariah-carey-james-packer-tmz-getty-92James Packer went crazy on a guy he suspected was making moves on Mariah Carey ... sources connected with Mariah tell TMZ.

Our Mariah sources say Packer grew jealous of her relationship with Bryan Tanaka -- her dancer and choreographer -- and the tension boiled over in June at Mariah's show.

We're told Bryan wasn't dancing that night due to an injury, so Packer thought it was weird he botherd to show up. Packer pulled Bryan into a room for a little mano a mano. Our sources say there was a ton of yelling, but it's unclear if it got physical.

We're told Packer was so crazed he used his casino ties -- he owns several in Australia and Asia -- to get Tanaka banned from Caesar's Palace, where MC performs. This photo of Bryan was circulated to security. 

1027_Mariah-Careys-banned-dancerWe're told Mariah didn't make a fuss because Bryan, who was nursing a knee injury, wasn't dancing. Mariah sources say she feared Packer. As we've reported, she thinks he's "mentally unstable."

Our Mariah sources think James got suspicious after she gave Bryan a lap dance -- a staple in her show -- during a May performance in South Africa.


Chael Sonnen & Tito Ortiz Hilarious Violent Trash Talk

10/27/2016 3:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Depends who you ask. 

Chael Sonnen insists it was ... and he claims to have rock solid proof. 

Tito Ortiz says it's a total lie -- and he's willing to give Chael a lift to the hospital in it after he beats his face in at Bellator 170. 

Watch both videos. You decide who's really telling the truth. 

Mariah Carey Packer 'Mentally Unstable' and 'Violent'

10/27/2016 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1027_mariah_carey_james_packer_tmz_gettyJames Packer "is not in his right mind" ... so claim people who Mariah Carey has downloaded with info about her bitter breakup.

Our Mariah sources tell us, "she had to leave him" and he hasn't been "present for her" in a couple of months. They call James "mentally unstable."

Even more serious ... the sources say the last straw for the relationship was that he got "violent" a month ago on a yacht in Greece.

TMZ broke the story ... Mariah claimed Packer was really terrible to her assistant on the boat, and that sent her packing.

Packer's camp tells TMZ ... Mariah's allegations are "simply untrue."

The Kardashians Makeup Artist Accused of Fat Shaming Kid

10/27/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-Joyce-Bonelli-instagramThe Kardashians' makeup artist is harassing her fiance's ex-wife and fat shaming his son, according to new legal docs.

Joyce Bonelli -- who flaunts her Kardashian ties on Instagram -- also used her social media to call Beth Taverniti a "handbag hoe" and a "ghetto bitch" ... according to Beth's request for a restraining order.

Beth also took their feud to court because she says Bonelli is bullying the son she has with Ben Taverniti, who's currently engaged to Bonelli. In the docs, Beth says Bonelli sent texts about the 5-year-old ... saying he's 45-60 pounds overweight and "the fat around his neck is getting so thick he doesn't breathe well."

Beth says Joyce has a huge following on social media -- including 1.7 million on IG -- because of her link to the Kardashians, which makes her posts way more humiliating.

Beth's restraining order request was denied, but there's a hearing later this month where she'll try to convince a judge she needs protection.


Uma Thurman Baby Daddy Forcing Her to Choose Movie or the Kid

10/26/2016 8:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026-uma-thurman-arpad-busson-gettyUma Thurman is stuck between a rock and a hard place ... if she shoots a movie she won't see her daughter. That's the predicament she's in, thanks to her baby daddy.

Uma's ex-fiance, Arpad Busson, just filed legal docs asking a judge to prohibit her from taking their 4-year-old daughter to Europe while she shoots a movie ... sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.

We're told Uma has been blindsided by the latest conflict ... she's supposed to leave in 2 days.

Arpad wants the kid to stay put in NYC, so now a judge will decide ... possibly creating a real-life "Sophie's Choice" for Uma.

TMZ broke the story ... Uma and Arpad's nasty custody battle heads to court in a few months to hash out visitation rights. 

A rep for Uma tells us ... they'll let the lawyers and judge handle it.

Lena Headey Game of Custody War

10/26/2016 7:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026-lena-heady-tmz-02Lena Headey has had it with her ex-husband's demands to move their kid from the land of fish and chips to the city of sushi ... she's now asking a judge to end the war.

The "Game of Thrones" star is locked in a legal battle with Peter Loughran over their 6-year-old son Wylie. Lena claims she and Peter agreed they would both live in England to share joint custody, but he insists he never made such an agreement and wants his time with Wylie at his L.A. home.

Lena says in legal docs she's beyond frustrated ... she's offered to fly him to England to see the child, she's suggested a FaceTime schedule and he keeps telling her to pound sand.

Lena attached an email to her docs in which Peter says, "I am confirming that I agree to Lena Headey keeping our son Wylie Loughran in the UK ... if all parts of said deal are put in place ..."

Apparently the deal has fallen apart, and now a judge must decide whether Wylie will be cosmo or just a young English bloke. 

Tiny Mariah Carey Had Me Take That Pic With Mayweather

10/24/2016 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

T.I.'s wife, Tiny, wasn't disrespecting her hubby by posing for a photo with Floyd Mayweather ... she was doing it out of respect for Mariah Carey.

We talked to Tiny about the awkward photo op with Floyd taken over the weekend at Mimi's Halloween party, and she explained how she was almost railroaded into standing next to a guy who does NOT get along with T.I.

Tip and Floyd have had beef since their 2014 brawl outside a Fatburger on the Vegas strip.


Drake Ripped for Kid Cudi Diss Track Calls Depression a 'Phase'

10/24/2016 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Drake just dissed Kid Cudi by making fun of his life-threatening depression ... and people are pissed. 

Drizzy dropped new music on the eve of his 30th birthday, and one of the songs -- "Two Birds, One Stone" -- clearly calls out Cudi as an angry guy who takes drugs to deal with reality.

You'll recall ... Cudi called out Drake and Kanye last month for refusing to work with him. He checked into rehab a few weeks later for depression.

Apparently turning 30 brings out Drake's worst behavior.

Taylor Swift Judge Seals Groping Photo

10/21/2016 11:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1021-taylor-swift-tmzTaylor Swift just got what she wanted from a judge, who agreed with her that the photo of a DJ allegedly groping her at a concert will be kept from the public until the case goes to trial.

Taylor filed legal docs, claiming the photo was inappropriate for public consumption because it would merely engender "scandalous" and "prurient" behavior and make it hard to find an impartial jury.

The judge ruled, "The widespread dissemination of this image might significantly complicate jury selection."

Taylor had also asked to restrict access to other evidence, but she lost that bid. The judge said all the other stuff is "entirely ordinary and mundane."

Chael Sonnen Tito Ortiz Is Broke (Tito Denies, Flips Bird)

10/20/2016 4:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chael Sonnen says Tito Ortiz is so poor, he can't make his Rolls-Royce payments and had the car repossessed last week.

There's just one problem ... Tito just sent us a photo next to the car, giving Chael the bird ... and insisting Chael's full of crap. 

1020_tito_ortiz_finger_sub_sports_wmChael made the cash claim on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs Thursday night on FS1) -- while talking smack about the guy he's set to face at Bellator 170 in January. 

We reached out to Tito to find out if he really lost his beloved Rolls ... to which Tito replied, "Don't hate the player, hate the game. I fight for real money, he fights for my change."

Bottom line ... you gotta watch Chael on the show tonight on FS1 -- he's hilarious and even takes a shot at his "Celebrity Apprentice" competitor, Snooki (hint: he thinks she's dumb). 

Teresa Giudice 'Prostitution Whore' Is My Friend Again ... Namaste

10/20/2016 3:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-teresa-giudice-instagram-01Teresa Giudice and the woman she called a "prostitution whore" on 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' are back in the friend zone ... and they brought their yoga mats with them. 

Sources close to Teresa and Danielle Staub tell us ... the former foes connected for the first time since Danielle left the show in 2010 by taking a yoga class together. Teresa reached out to Danielle after she heard she was tweeting out support for her during her family and legal problems.

We're told Teresa fell in love with yoga -- something Danielle has done for a long time -- while she was in prison ... so it was the perfect idea for their reunion. 

It seems like the friend date was legit too, because 'RHONJ' isn't filming right now ... which probably made things even more peaceful.

RZA Russell Spit At Azealia ... But She Was Out of Her Mind

10/20/2016 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

RZA has broken his silence ... condemning Azealia Banks for the confrontation with Russell Crowe ... claiming Russell was simply trying to prevent her from intentionally cutting another guest with a glass.

RZA came on "TMZ Live" and told us ... Russell did indeed spit at Azealia like she claims, but he didn't choke her ... nor did he hurl the n-word. He also said she was out of control and violent ... and hinted she was wasted.

RZA says he told cops the same story he told us. Azealia has filed a battery report with the BHPD.

Charlie Sheen & Ashton Kutcher Back On the Same Team Bro Out At Dodgers Game

10/20/2016 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020_Ashton_Kutcher_Charlie_Sheen_dodgers_launchWhat beef???

Charlie Sheen and Ashton Kutcher came face-to-face at Dodger Stadium Wednesday night -- but there was no rivalry, just love ... and beer.

Remember, the two got off to a rocky start when Ashton took over for Sheen on "Two and a Half Men" back in 2011 and continued to trade shots on social media until 2014. 

But last night when Ashton spotted Charlie in the good seats at the NLCS -- he went over to the star and the two bro'd out. 

We're told the interaction was short (there was a game taking place after all) but everything was friendly and positive ... except for when the Dodgers lost.
