Krista Allen Catches Burglar Mid-Break-In ... Family Dog Injured

2/23/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Krista Allen walked in on a would-be burglar, who she says badly injured her dog during the break-in ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Krista arrived back at her San Fernando Valley home Thursday and found a transient woman inside. We're told Krista called 911 and held the woman down until cops arrived.

The story gets crazier ... Krista claimed the woman pointed out that their family dog was having difficulty getting up, which led Krista to believe the woman had kicked her pup. The dog was, in fact, injured and taken to a vet. Unclear on its condition.

Cops say the woman drank Krista's alcohol and ingested pills that were in the house. We're told she also had Krista's vibrator.

We've reached out to Krista's rep ... no comment.

Breaking News

"The Crown" star Claire Foy has separated from her husband, actor Stephen Campbell Moore.

Foy said in a statement that this was by no means a recent event ... "We have separated and have been for some time."

Although the statement says nothing about divorce, the words she uses loom large for an end to her 4-year marriage ... "We do however continue as great friends with the utmost respect for one another."

Foy's husband had a major health scare last year when he was diagnosed with a tumor on his pituitary gland. Fortunately, it was benign.

33-year-old Claire herself had a similar scare at age 17, when she was diagnosed with a tumor in her eye. Again, benign.

The couple has 1 child ... a 3-year-old daughter.  

Tim Donaghy Off The Hook In Agg. Assault Case

2/22/2018 3:59 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tim Donaghy ain't goin' back to prison ... 'cause officials in Florida are NOT filing charges against the ex-NBA ref after allegedly threatening a man with a hammer ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We broke the story ... Donaghy was arrested on December 19, 2017 and booked for aggravated assault -- a 3rd-degree felony. He was facing up to 5 years in prison.

For his part ... Tim claims he was only trying to rescue his daughter ... who he believed was doing drugs, and in a dangerous environment. 

Good news for Donaghy ... according to a court doc filed earlier today, prosecutors in Manatee County will not file charges ... meaning he's off the hook.

The one catch ... the state still has the right to file charges in the future ... but that seems unlikely.

Bottom line, Donaghy's free and clear.

Andy Dick Drinking Again, Violent Threat to Wife, Kids ... She Claims in Court

2/22/2018 2:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Andy Dick is drinking heavily again and lashing out at his family ... according to his wife, who's now getting court-ordered protection from him.

Lina Sved -- the mother of 2 of his children -- and she says 2 weeks ago she found him at home screaming and cursing with broken dishes and glass around the house. In court docs, she says she could smell vodka on his breath.

Lina says Andy said he was angry because the children -- who are adults -- were disrespecting him. She says things escalated when he flipped a coffee table. He only calmed down after she called 911.

In her request for the restraining order she also describes a similar incident in January when Andy broke 2 windows to get in the house. Lina thinks Andy is bipolar and gets erratic and verbally abusive when he's drinking.

She also says he brings "random strangers" into their home, and she's terrified for herself and the children. Lina and Andy have been on and off for years, but in the docs she says they're currently married.

Lina was granted a temporary restraining order -- Andy has to stay 100 yards away from her and their children. He also has to move out of the family home.

Lisa Marie Presley Sues Ex-Manager ... He Blew $24 Mil of My Elvis Dough!!!

2/22/2018 1:25 PM PST
Breaking News

2:46 PM -- Lisa's ex-manager in a separate lawsuit says Lisa "refused to listen to the warnings of her most trusted advisers and her family. Unfortunately, she now has only herself to blame for her financial and personal misfortunes."

Lisa Marie Presley is offering an explanation for why she's in debt -- she says an ex-manager sunk $100 million into a failed investment, and now she's suing him.

Lisa Marie says Barry Siegel ran the Trust Elvis Presley left for his daughter -- and in 2005 he sold off 85% of her interest in Elvis Presley Enterprises for $100 mil. In the lawsuit docs, obtained by TMZ, she says Siegel took all of that cash and invested in a company called Core Entertainment.

Core is the parent company of "American Idol." You could kinda understand his move -- 2005 was the heyday for 'Idol.'

Unfortunately, Core went belly-up in 2016 and, according to the docs, Lisa Marie's stock plummeted and she lost $24.5 million. In the suit, she also blames Siegel for not warning her she was spending beyond her means. For example, she says the Trust already had 2 mortgages that were under water ... when she bought a $9 million English estate. She says Siegel never sounded a single alarm.

She says the Trust was left with a mere $14k in cash after Core went bankrupt.

TMZ broke the story ... Lisa Marie says she's $16 mil in debt ... some of which is tied up in her mortgage on that English estate, as well as unpaid taxes. In the suit, she says Siegel stopped paying the taxes to conceal the true nature of her financial mess.

Siegel's told us Lisa Marie's spending habits are the real problem, and claims she was $20 mil in the hole back in 2003 ... until he stepped in to right the ship. He claims his attempts to curb her spending fell on deaf ears.

She's suing Siegel for more than $100 million.

Harvey Weinstein realizes the enormous misstep his civil lawyer made when he filed legal docs suggesting Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence and Gwyneth Paltrow have no problem with him, because he's just schooled the attorney, telling him to back off.

Once again, moving forward, Mr. Weinstein has advised his counsel to not include specific names of former associates; and to avoid whenever possible, even if they are in the public record."

Lawrence and Streep blasted Weinstein for dragging them into his defense, calling it exploitative, predatory and downright disgusting.

Kodak Black 3 Charges Dropped from Home Raid ... Still in Jail, Though

2/22/2018 6:51 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kodak Black and his attorneys scored a small victory in his latest legal war -- he got 3 criminal charges dropped.

The State of Florida dismissed one charge each -- for possession of a weapon or ammunition by a delinquent, grand theft of a firearm, and child neglect ... according to Kodak's attorney, Bradford Cohen.

The charges all stem from the January raid at the rapper's Florida home. You'll recall, police were alerted after he posted an IG Live video ... showing several men with guns and drugs. Kodak's young son also walked into the room. Police say they found 94.9 grams of marijuana.

Kodak's still facing other charges, including marijuana possession and possession of ammunition. He's still in jail for a probation violation.

We're told the 3 charges that were dropped were tossed because prosecutors lacked sufficient evidence to go forward.

Baby steps.

Meryl Streep To Harvey Weinstein ... You're Pathetic!!!

2/21/2018 7:16 PM PST

Meryl Streep's pissed Harvey Weinstein used her for his defense in one of the class action lawsuits against him ... and she's not having any of it.

The Oscar-winning actress says just because it's true that Weinstein wasn't sexually inappropriate or physically abusive toward her in their business relationship ... it's not evidence he didn't assault or harass the many other women who have alleged such misconduct.

She calls Weinstein's move to use her name -- along with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lawrence -- to aid in his case "pathetic and exploitative," and adds ... "The criminal actions he is accused of conducting on the bodies of these women are his responsibility, and if there is any justice left in the system he will pay for them."

Translation -- This is all on you ... and keep my name out of your mouth.

Kathy Griffin Restraining Order Against Neighbor Tossed

Breaking News

Kathy Griffin's request for a restraining order in her ongoing feud with a neighbor has been denied.

A judge just tossed Griffin's request to keep Jeffrey Mezger away from her, and also ruled she can only record video -- not audio -- from one of her security cams. You may recall, Mezger alleged she was spying on him and his family with the cameras. Kathy can continue recording from all other cameras.

As we reported ... Kathy went to court to get protection for herself and her boyfriend, Randy Bick, after claiming Mezger uncorked an expletive-laced rant.

Kathy claimed she recorded Mezger saying, "Hey Randy, go f*** yourself ... Now you're calling the cops? F**k you and f**k Kathy."

Mezger fired back and got a temporary restraining order to block Kathy from recording him. There's a hearing in that case next month.

Breaking News

Farrah Abraham says a 'Teen Mom' honcho ridiculed her for her adult film work, and she's not gonna take it laying down ... she's taking the whole company to court.

Farrah says she met with Morgan J. Freeman (no relation), an executive producer on "Teen Mom OG," at her home in Texas last October. In a lawsuit, she says Freeman harassed, humiliated and degraded her doing porn.

The 'Backdoor Teen Mom' star says Freeman went on to threaten her future career at MTV, and she "feared for her life" because he was hostile toward her. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, shortly after the meeting MTV fired Farrah from the remainder of the 'OG' season, and also pulled the plug on negotiations for a long-term deal.

MTV aired portions of Farrah and Freeman meeting in a preview for the current season -- it was clearly tense, but there was no mention of her porn career in the clip that aired.

Farrah's suing Freeman, Viacom -- MTV's parent company -- and a few smaller production companies for at least $5 million.
