'Fuller House' Star Divorce Settled by ... Flipping Coins!

11/29/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


"Fuller House" star Eva LaRue has divvied up a slew of assets with her ex, but perhaps most interesting of all -- they split their coin collection almost perfectly down the middle. 

According to divorce docs, LaRue -- who plays Bob Saget's wife on the the new show -- and ex husband Joseph Cappuccio each walked away with 160 of the same coins ... except for the 16 French Angels gold coins she scored.

They did have a few other items ... Cappuccio got to keep 8 cars, 2 motorcycles and the gear for his seafood biz. At the end of the day, he had to pay LaRue $2.455 million to make it all even.

Now that's some serious coin!

'Times of Your Life' Writer Leave My Anka Hit Out ... Of Political/Trump Attack Ads

11/29/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Roger Nichols, the songwriter behind some huge '70s hits, is trying to make sure one of those songs doesn't end up getting tied to Donald Trump's face during his presidential campaign. 

Nichols co-wrote The Carpenters' #1 hit "We've Only Just Begun" ... and also penned "Times of Your Life" -- which Paul Anka took to the top of the charts in 1976. 

In a lawsuit, Nichols says Club For Growth Action -- a political action group -- never got his permission to use "Times of Your Life" for an attack ad against former Wisconsin senator Russ Feingold. Nichols is pissed the ad gets heavy play on YouTube and Wisconsin TV stations, but he's also worried his musical baby will soon be connected to Trump.

Club for Growth Action has been attacking Trump lately, and Nichols is preemptively voicing concerns his song might be slapped over images of the Donald. Nichols thinks the song will be less valuable for future licensing ... if it's remembered for being 'that anti-Trump' song.  

Nichlos is suing for damages and wants his song immediately pulled from the Feingold ad.

11/29/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-dennis-rodman-tmz-01Dennis Rodman hired a company to retrieve a ton of his lost assets, but that company is now suing him for allegedly Worming out of paying up on a hefty tab.

Assets International says it was hired to recover unclaimed property for Rodman in exchange for 30% of the property's worth. Wouldn't ya know it ... the company says it found $96k for Dennis at the Michigan Department of Treasury's Unclaimed Property Division.

Assets International says Rodman went quiet after he got the good news -- but it later found out Rodman had retrieved the booty all by himself ... which means it lost out on a $28k commission, hence the lawsuit.

We reached out to Rodman's camp ... they're blaming any sketchy business on his former business manager.

Victor Ortiz Sued Over Country Music Beatdown ... Boxer Claims BS

11/29/2015 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125_victor_ortiz_rose_bowl_tmz_getty-2Boxing superstar Victor Ortiz has been hit with a lawsuit by the guy he allegedly beat down at a Kenny Chesney concert ... but Ortiz claims the accuser was too damn drunk to remember what REALLY went down that night. 

In court docs obtained by TMZ Sports ... the accuser claims Victor and his brother were bouncing around the Rose Bowl on July 25th looking to pick a fight while a Rose Bowl security guard egged them on. 

The accuser claims he was going to get food and drinks for his fiancee ... when out of nowhere, and for no reason, the Ortiz brothers coldcocked him and beat him down until he was unconscious.

In the suit, filed by attorney Cynthia Hafif, the man claims the security guard recorded the whole thing on his phone. 

Ortiz and his brother were both arrested and charged with battery. Now the victim wants them both to pay up. He's also suing the city of Pasadena which owns and operates the Rose Bowl. 

But Victor's lawyer, Mark Davis, says the accuser is lying -- telling TMZ Sports HE was the real bad guy ... and had been drunkenly trying to pick a fight with the Ortiz brothers. Davis claims the accuser took the first swing

Victor's attorney says the lawsuit is just a shameless money grab ... and "when the facts are out Victor will win both the civil and criminal case."

Lamar Odom Prosecution for Coke Possession Unlikely

11/28/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-lamar-odom-tmz-01Lamar Odom is in desperate shape medically, but legally we're told he may get cut a break.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the Nye County D.A. in Nevada is backing off the statements made by the Sheriff, who said there was a strong chance Lamar would be prosecuted for cocaine possession. 

TMZ broke the story, Lamar's blood revealed he was high on coke when he fell into unconsciousness at the Love Ranch brothel.

Our sources tell us the D.A. now says they will consider Lamar's medical condition and mental state in deciding whether to charge him. We broke the story, Lamar is barely able to speak and cannot walk. His cognitive functions are also severely impaired. 

Fact is ... the D.A. really isn't cutting Lamar a special break, because we did some checking and couldn't find a single case in Nye County where someone was prosecuted for cocaine possession when they landed in the hospital with severe damage. 

And there's another factor ... we're told Lamar is so bad off, he might not even be legally competent to stand trial.

11/28/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-derek-hagan-gettyEx-NFL wide receiver Derek Hagan is at war with his estranged wife -- claiming she's still spending money and BALLIN' at nightclubs like an "NFL wife" ... even though he's out of the league. 

Hagan -- who played 8 seasons in the NFL for the Dolphins, Giants, Raiders & Titans -- says he and Tiffany LeBlanc broke up in 2013 after nearly 2 years of marriage ... and it ended VERY BADLY. 

In new court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Hagan claims she sold her ring and cleaned out their Oakland house when he wasn't around -- taking all of their stuff -- zoomed off in their Porsche and then hit their joint bank account ... taking $150k and leaving for Texas. 

Derek's pissed ... claiming she still wants MORE in the form of spousal support -- despite the fact he hasn't played in the league since '14 and his NFL career is over.

Hagan -- who's currently a sales rep for a helmet company making $1,800 per month -- says his wife is making NO EFFORT to get a job and continues to spend money like a baller. 

"[Tiffany] has chosen to remain unemployed, continue to live the life of an 'NFL wife' and spend the majority of her time socializing and attending nightclubs."

Instead of getting a check from him, Derek says Tiffany (a licensed esthetician) needs to get her ass a jobby job ... and points out in court docs that there are currently 124 opening for estheticians in Houston. 

We reached out to LeBlanc for comment ... so far, no word back. 

Disney & Marvel You Steal Elsa & Spider-Man ... We'll Sue for MILLIONS!

11/28/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-frozen-marvel-southamerica-01Mickey Mouse, Elsa and some superheroes are in a Venezuelan standoff (like a Mexican one, but further south) with a company accused of putting on a bootleg live Disney show.

Disney says it fired off a cease and desist letter last year to the producers of “Aventura Congeladas” (translation: “Frozen Adventure”) ... demanding they kill all marketing and promotion of the show because it jacked mouse house characters.   

The producers complied at first, but in a new lawsuit Disney says the show eventually started up again under a new name -- "Vacaciones de Aventuras" (translation: "Adventure Holidays") -- and added Marvel heroes like Spider-Man and Captain America.

Of course, Disney owns Marvel, so for them that's no bueno ... hence, the lawsuit. 

Check out a clip of the live production -- Iron Man, Thor, Princesses Elsa and Anna, Olaf and many more make cameos. Disney's lawsuit demands millions for use of its trademarks.

They won't dejalo ir! (That's "let it go" for the gringos.) 

'Real World' Star Death Threats From Obsessive Fan

11/27/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1120_jamie_chung_TMZ'Hangover' actress and former 'Real World' cast member Jamie Chung got flooded with some seriously threatening emails -- and it got so bad, the LAPD had to track down the sender. 

According to law enforcement Chung received 100 harassing emails from two separate Gmail accounts ... all in just one week, back in August. They ranged from simply "annoying" to threats to kill her.

Cops believed both accounts were owned by the same person because the emails were identical. Using the email info, cops tracked the sender and obtained a search warrant.

We're told cops got in touch with the guy and determined he was too far away from Jamie to pose any real threat. The case was closed without any charges. 

Deion Sanders Intercepts Ex-Wife's Cash Huge Legal Victory

11/27/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-deion-pilar-sanders-tmz-instagram-02Deion Sanders might wanna dust off one of his famous TD dances -- he just won more than a million dollars in his defamation case against ex-wife, Pilar Sanders.

An attorney for Deion tells us the NFL legend feels a great sense of "relief and vindication" in getting a $2.2 million judgment against Pilar ... after she alleged in interviews and web posts she was a victim of domestic violence.

Deion and Pilar had a very bad, very public breakup ... and cops even got involved after a few nasty spats.

We're told the money Pilar now owes Deion offsets any money he would have paid in their divorce settlement. Bottom line? He owes nothing, but she still owes him 7 figures.

Pilar's attorney says they plan to appeal.

'NCIS' Star Busted For DUI

11/26/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-michael-weatherly-getty"NCIS" star Michael Weatherly ended up on the other side of the law when LAPD busted him for DUI. 

Law enforcement sources tell us Weatherly was stopped for speeding earlier this month around 1 AM in Hollywood. We're told officers suspected he'd been drinking and after running tests, determined his BAC was well above the legal limit. Weatherly spent nearly 15 hours behind bars.

The L.A. City Attorney charged him with two counts of DUI last week and if convicted, Weatherly faces a max of six months in jail and $1,000 in fines -- though jail time's highly unlikely since it's his first offense.  

We've reached out to Weatherly for comment ... so far, no word back.

Lil Wayne Sued Where Are My Panties? T-Shirt Model is Pissed

11/26/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


That hot woman on Lil Wayne's Trukfit clothing gear is accusing the rapper of snatching her image ... because she NEVER agreed to work with his company, and thinks he represents "misogyny."

Shanise Taylor is suing Weezy, and in the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- she admits posing for a 2011 photo session. She says she's not a professional model, and when the photog sent her the shots she figured that was the end of that. 

Then this year, she saw one of the pics pop up on a shirt made by Trukfit, a Weezy clothing line. In her suit, she even says Weezy's team doctored the photo to make it look like she wasn't wearing underwear.


Taylor says she never signed off on the shirts using her bod -- and, furthermore, she never would want her image "on apparel associated with misogyny and violence."

Taylor retained the Mase Lara law firm in Miami to take on Weezy. She claims she's been humiliated, and wants the shirts to disappear, plus an unspecified amount of damages for her troubles.

A rep for Lil Wayne had no comment.

Otis Nixon Arrested In Georgia 'Contributing to Delinquency of a Minor'

11/25/2015 4:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125_Otis-Nixon_gettyMore trouble for ex-MLB star Otis Nixon ... he was arrested in Georgia this week for contributing to the delinquency of a minor ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Here's what we know ... Nixon was arrested on Nov. 24th for contributing to delinquency of a minor and permitting an unlicensed person to drive. 

But here's where things get bizarre ... 

Our sources tell us the whole thing centers around a 16-year-old boy who told police Nixon let him borrow a rental car that was rented under Otis' name. 

We're told the boy -- who did not have a license to drive -- was pulled over by police after people called cops to report an erratic driver. 

Sources say the boy told cops Nixon authorized him to use the vehicle -- and even gave him a handwritten note on "Otis Nixon Foundation" stationary in case anyone asked. 

So, why was the boy driving the car in the first place? We're told the whole thing is sketchy ... we're working on the details.

Anyway, cops tracked down Nixon and arrested him Tuesday night. He was released Wednesday on $2,500 bond. 

It's not Nixon's first brush with the law ... the 56-year-old -- who played 17 years in the big leagues -- was popped for cocaine possession back in 2013.
