Lindsay Lohan She Pulled a $10k IG Rip-Off On Me ... Filmmaker Claims

7/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-lindsay-lohan-tmz-01Lindsay Lohan's got more than fiance trouble ... a filmmaker is going after her for the $10,000 he claims he gave her without getting a damn thing in return.

Matt Martin made a movie called "Little Mermaid," not the Disney one, and approached a Lindsay associate about having her pump the flick to her nearly 5 million Instagram followers.

Matt says in the legal letter, obtained by TMZ, he struck a deal with Yossi Bechor back in October after learning he often arranged deals on Lindsay's behalf. He says the deal was $10k and executive producer credit ... for LiLo to post 3 promos for his film, but 3 months rolled by without a peep.

Martin says he's reached out to team Lindsay and Yossi several times to no avail. So now he's demanding he get the dough back, or he'll sue.

We reached out to Lindsay and Yossi, so far no word back.

Johnny Depp Amber's Gonna Ruin My Credit

7/26/2016 5:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-johnny-depp-amber-heard-getty-03Johnny Depp believes he can't get a fair shake in his courtroom showdown with Amber Heard until his lawyers grill her in a deposition -- and if that doesn't happen it could cost him dearly.

Depp's team was in court Tuesday for an emergency hearing to settle critical issues in the case. His side says Johnny has every right to confront Amber over her "meritless" accusations of domestic violence.

In docs, Depp says if he can't depose her he'll be behind the 8 ball in his effort to defend himself, and could lose the case. And there's this -- he's worried a loss could affect him emotionally and financially. He points out a permanent restraining order would appear on future credit checks.

Yes, even with an estimated net worth of $400 mil ... he's worried about credit.

As we reported ... Amber's depo has been delayed because they couldn't agree on a date, but the judge settled the matter. It's now scheduled for August 6 -- a Saturday.

EXCLUSIVE

Conrad Murray still insists he didn't have a hand in Michael Jackson's death -- despite his guilty conviction and 2 years in jail -- and even believes he wasn't the worst doctor in MJ's life.

Watch the clip ... Murray refused to own up to having any role in Michael's homicide -- instead he backed up the bus over the late Dr. Arnold Klein

By the way, Murray's claims about getting railroaded by the coroner and Propofol not being in Michael's system? Read the report ... he's got it wrong.

7/26/2016 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-Jared-Fogle--Russell-Taylor-getty-facebookRussell Taylor -- the ex-CEO of Jared Fogle's charity -- claims the secret cameras he installed in his home weren't meant to record child porn.

Taylor, who is serving a 27-year sentence for child porn and child exploitation, is responding to a lawsuit filed by one of his alleged victims who claims he knowingly recorded child porn and shared the material with Fogle.

In his handwritten doc, obtained by TMZ, Taylor says, "This was not the purpose I set the cameras up for." But on the claim he shared the footage with Fogle -- he pleads the 5th.

He also says he's broke and doesn't have a lawyer ... hence the handwritten response.

The alleged victim, a Jane Doe, says Taylor recorded her and other minors showering and changing clothes.

Ex-NFL QB Marcus Vick Insane Police Video Running from Cops, Captured at Gunpoint

7/26/2016 1:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained insane footage of ex-NFL quarterback Marcus Vick -- Michael Vick's brother -- literally running from cops during an incident back in April ... before being captured at gunpoint. 

It all started at a gym in Newport News, Virginia -- when cops were questioning the 32-year-old about a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a civil case. 

Vick spoke with cops for nearly 10 minutes before suddenly deciding to make a run for it -- shoving 2 cops out of the way, breaking tackles -- and SPRINTING down the street. 

Cops gave chase ... but Vick is WAYYYYYYY FASTER (he ran a 4.42 in the 40 at the 2006 NFL Combine). 

It seemed like he was going to get away -- but the cops stayed with him, and Vick eventually tired out ... sat down on the ground and gave himself up.

But when the trailing officer caught up to Vick -- he drew his weapon, pointed it at the seated Vick and ordered him to show his hands and get on his stomach. 

The whole thing is pretty intense ... but Vick is eventually taken into custody without further incident. 

He was later convicted of resisting arrest and sentenced to a year in jail with 11 months suspended. He also got 12 months probation.

By the way, at the end the video you can hear one of the cops say ... "If he ran I knew we weren't gonna catch him."

Atlantic Records Search Is On for Soundtrack Leaker

7/26/2016 1:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-suicide-squad-album-Atlantic-Records-01Atlantic Records wants the identity of the person who leaked a song off the "Suicide Squad" soundtrack, and it's demanding Reddit help find the culprit.

In docs, Atlantic says it sent a few digital copies of the Twenty One Pilots track "Heathens" to a tight-knit group ... roughly a week before it was scheduled to drop to the public.

The recipients included the band and several label execs, but the following day the track surfaced online. Atlantic says someone uploaded it to Dropfile.io, then shared the link on Reddit.

Atlantic says it was ultimately forced to release the song later the next day, and therefore lost revenue since the planned marketing campaign was still a week away.

They want the court to issue a subpeona to Reddit to identify the users who posted the track.

Rapper Burberry Perry Sued You're 160 Years Late on Your Name ... So STOP Using It!!!

7/26/2016 12:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-burberry-perry-logo-trademark-sued-INSTAGRAM-01Rapper Burberry Perry straight up jacked an iconic name and logo to grow his fan base on the back of a centuries-old brand ... so claims that company in a new lawsuit.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Burberry -- the famous British luxury line -- wants the rapper to ditch the name and logo he intentionally stole to market himself on social media.

The company says Burberry Perry lifted a name that goes all the way back to 1856 in the UK. Plus ... they claim he deliberately stole the brand's globally recognized plaid print and equestrian knight logo Perry uses on his album cover.

What's more ... Perry also made the drastic step to mimic Burberry's font ... and now the company fears customers will think it sponsored or is somehow connected to Perry.

Burberry sent Perry cease and desist letters to get him to stop using the name and logos. He ignored it.

The company's now suing to get the rapper to drop the act.

Ezekiel Elliott All Smiles Again After Domestic Violence Allegations

7/26/2016 12:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0726-ezekiel-elliott-instagram-01-Ezekiel Elliott doesn't look like he's too worried about last week's domestic violence allegations -- posting a photo to social media with a big ol' smile on his face. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Elliott's ex-GF claimed the Dallas Cowboys star struck her during a parking lot altercation early Friday morning -- and later claimed he had a history of violence against her. 

But cops spoke with 4 witnesses who say they never saw Elliott lay a finger on the woman -- and in the end, officers did NOT arrest Elliott because they didn't feel there was enough evidence to prove he committed a crime.

The woman was referred to the prosecutor's office -- but clearly, Elliott ain't sweatin' it. 

Amber Heard to Johnny Depp Stop Stonewalling the Divorce

7/26/2016 9:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-01Johnny Depp's making it damn near impossible to get the divorce settlement rolling because he's put up a bunch of roadblocks in the case ... according to Amber Heard.

In Amber's legal docs, obtained by TMZ, she accuses Johnny of refusing to hand over financial docs needed to settle the divorce case. As we've reported ... Depp's team wants her to sign a non-disclosure agreement before giving up the goods.

But in the docs, Amber says the non-disclosure agreement is ridiculous because it calls for a $100k fine each time his financial info is leaked -- not just by Amber, but even by her forensic accountant. Amber says it's an outrageous demand ... and just a ploy to thwart real progress in this case.

Of course, Johnny's team would say ... the fine won't matter if the agreement isn't violated.

The other issue -- setting a date for Amber's deposition. His side has proposed August 3 and 8, but Amber says she's scheduled to be in London working on "Justice League." She's offered to fly back on a Saturday, but she says Johnny's team isn't willing to work weekends. 

Both sides are due in court Tuesday to hammer out the issues.

Lindsay Lohan Daddy Wants a Piece of Egor ... After Weekend Fight

7/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-michael-lohan-egor-tarabasov-tmz-getty-03Lindsay Lohan's father fired off a series of angry, threatening text messages to her fiance on the heels of the couple's huge argument that had police rushing to their apartment. 

TMZ obtained the texts Michael Lohan sent Egor Tarabasov late Saturday night -- and it's pretty clear he's already spoken to LiLo about the fight. Michael says, "You threaten my daughter, touch her or if anything happens to her and you will have no where to hide mother ducked like weasel."

The messages are filled with typos -- we're guessing his anger had taken over. Michael continues ... "VOME Here And Face ME like a man and bring your daddy and mommy."

0725_micheal_lohan_text_message_tmz_wm_SUB-2

As we reported -- neighbors called police after hearing Lindsay yelling outside their apartment, accusing Egor of strangling her. 

Michael comes off like a Liam Neeson wannabe in the messages, adding ... "Return her jewelry you broke phoney or I'll take it out of your ass. I WILL find you."

Lindsay flew back to the States on Monday sans Egor. We've reached out to him for his side of the story, but he hasn't responded.

NFL's Tre Mason Cops Called, Bizarre Behavior ... 5th Time In 4 Months

7/26/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

07-24-tre-mason-GETTY-01More troubling news about L.A. Rams RB Tre Mason -- who's been at the center of 5 different incidents involving cops in the past 4 months, TMZ Sports has learned ... and his family is extremely concerned.

The latest incident occurred on Saturday -- multiple units responded to Mason's family home in Florida in the middle of the afternoon. We know Mason was NOT arrested -- but there seems to be a bigger problem. 

Mason's family is concerned about his mental health -- citing a string of bizarre behavior and angry outbursts ... and they're worried for his personal safety. 

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Dept. has been called to the home 5 times since March 28th -- and at least once, Mason agreed to check into a facility to resolve the situation. 

From the info we've gathered, Mason has NEVER been accused of hurting anyone. However, on one occasion, a family member told cops she didn't want Tre to leave the house because he hadn't slept in days and she was worried "he will get hurt." 

Before the issues at his home, Mason was arrested in Hollywood, FL on March 5th after he was pulled over for speeding -- and was tased when he refused to get out of the car. 

It's clear, Tre's family is concerned and wants to help him. 

We reached out to Mason's agent for comment -- so far, no word back.

When and if he's ruled competent, Ewing will face 2 felony charges -- assault and battery -- for the fight.
