'Fear the Walking Dead' Star Arrested After Fight on CBS Lot

5/24/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0523_frank-dillane_gettyFrank Dillane -- star of "Fear the Walking Dead" and a 'Harry Potter' flick -- allegedly got physical with a CBS security guard, and got hauled off the backlot by cops ... TMZ has learned. 

Our law enforcement sources say Dillane, who plays Nick Clark on 'Dead,' tried to breeze through a security checkpoint on Sunday night. Guards tried to stop him, especially because 'Dead' doesn't even shoot on the lot. At least one guard described his behavior as "erratic." 

We're told Dillane didn't dig all the attention, things got heated and he ended up striking one of the guards. That was the last straw for the security force, which detained the actor with a citizen's arrest.

LAPD arrived and booked Dillane for battery. We've reached out to his reps, but no word back yet.

5/23/2016 2:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0523_Marc-Anthony_tmzMarc Anthony signed on to do a major concert series in Europe that was so good -- he booked it twice with 2 different promoters ... according to the one that's now suing to get back its dough. 

R&J Entertainment says it booked Marc in 2014 and 2015 to play some iconic venues in the Netherlands, Spain and England ... including Wembley Arena -- but the concerts never came to fruition. R&J says Marc backed out of the deal ... and it eventually found out why.

According to the suit, the singer had simultaneously signed a "near identical" deal with another promoter. R&J says that contract royally screwed its deal with Marc, and left them out in the cold, financially.

The promoters are suing Marc for damages suffered by pulling the plug on all those concerts.

Breaking News

Chumlee from "Pawn Stars" laid out his plea deal for the judge in his drugs and guns case, and left court one step closer to dodging a huge bullet ... aka jail time.

TMZ broke the story ... Chumlee's attorneys scored him a sweet deal where he'll get off without a single day behind bars for his arrest for drug and weapon possession.

He was in a Las Vegas court Monday morning to lay out the terms for the judge -- 3 years probation, plus counseling ... and if he keeps his nose clean, the felonies will be dropped to misdemeanors. The judge still has to approve the deal.

Outside the courthouse, we asked Chumlee about his penchant for buying weed "in bulk" -- as he explained to cops when they raided his home.

Law enforcement sources tell us they first got the heads up about the cyber threats from director Kyle Newman, whose wife, Jaime King, was also on the receiving end of threats.

Police got a search warrant to comb through Twitter's records that could lead them to their culprit. We're told so far cops have not gotten the info they need to close in.

Ex 'Dual Survival' Host Sues Discovery Paired Me with an Axe Wielding Psycho

5/23/2016 8:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0523-cody-lundin-joe-teti-YOUTUBE-FACEBOOK-01Former "Dual Survival" host Cody Lundin's toughest job was surviving his co-host, who threatened to kill him with all sorts of weapons ... according to a lawsuit he filed against Discovery.

Lundin says producers made it look like he was losing it on set -- but according to the docs, his partner, Joe Teti, was the real menace. He says while shooting in Norway ... Teti threatened to "bury" him on a mountain while waving around an ice axe. During a shoot in Hawaii, Lundin says Teti threatened to impale him with a spear.

Lundin says Teti, a former CIA operative, once said ... "You better not blow this for me ... I think you know what is going to happen to you" -- and also flaunted pics of people he allegedly killed during his CIA days.

His biggest issue -- edits that made it seem like he was cracking under pressure. For instance, they showed Lundin throwing matches into a pool of water -- a cardinal sin for any survivalist. Lundin says producers set him up and that scene, along with several others, have made it impossible for him to find work. 

Joe Teti tells us he never threatened Cody, adding, "I always had the utmost respect for him, considered him a friend, and am hurt these accusations have been made."

The photog says he left to avoid further confrontation. Chris flatly denies his guy hit anyone, or in his words ... "It's a lie, lie, lie, lie."

EXCLUSIVE

0520_ashley-mattingly_tmzEx-Playboy Playmate Ashley Mattingly called the police on a man she says angrily showed up at her home after a year of flooding her with calls and texts.

Ashley, Miss March 2011, tells TMZ ... a guy named Joey claimed to be a DJ and contacted her about doing a club appearance, which she ultimately turned down. Ashley claims Joey kept reaching out anyway -- and even left her a sterling silver Tiffany necklace on Easter.

But according to the police report filed by Ashley, and obtained by TMZ, he showed up at her Orange County home last month and took back the necklace. Ashley called police to report a "stalking," but Joey was gone by the time cops got there.

Ashley wanted the incident documented, but didn't want to press charges.

Joey admits taking back the necklace, but says he's no stalker. Police reviewed text messages and say they didn't see anything threatening.

Scott Disick Watch Thief Victim Cops on the Hunt

EXCLUSIVE

0520_scott_disick_tmzScott Disick was hit by thieves where he lives ... and they took a fortune in watches and jewelry ... TMZ has learned.

Disick was in Cannes late last week when someone got into his Hidden Hills home and looted his famous watch collection. Scott has publicly bragged about the timepieces, which include a Rolex Yacht-Master II valued at $32,000. Another watch goes for $48,000.  

We don't know how many watches were taken, but law enforcement tells us there were "multiples worth a significant amount of money." 

Cops believe it's an inside job since there's no sign of forced entry. Scott is known to let lots of people in his home, especially for parties. It's more than suspicious his home was hit just after he got on a plane for France. 

'Fast N' Loud' Host I Finally Got My O-O-O O'Reilly Auto Parts Money

5/21/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0518-richard-rawlings-tmz-02Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings just nailed the company that markets O'Reilly Auto Parts for underhanded business practices.

Rawlings claimed in a lawsuit that he was hired to promote the auto parts giant for $100k. He says he made personal appearances and sang the virtues of O'Reilly on social media. In return, he says he got screwed out of $40k. 

A judge just awarded Rawlings a whopping $166,000 ... most of which are punitive damages for intentional wrongdoing. The marketing company didn't even bother responding to the lawsuit, so the judge entered a default judgment.

Rawlings is pleased, telling us, "There's a lot of bad guys in this business. This one got caught."
