10/26/2016 3:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1026-lena-heady-tmzLena Headey violated her custody agreement with her ex-husband by keeping their son in the U.K., and a judge has just ordered her to come back to L.A. with the kid.

Ex-hubby Peter Loughran was in court Wednesday when the judge made it clear ... the 'GoT' star went crosswise with the 2013 custody agreement by enrolling 6-year-old Wylie in school without Peter's permission.

Peter wanted Wylie returned stat -- the boy was supposed to come back Sept. 5th -- but the judge cut Lena some slack and gave her until the show wraps to return him to L.A.

Lena wanted to keep Wylie in England permanently, because she felt the U.S. school system sucked.

The custody agreement gives Peter visitation 10 days a month. Until Wylie comes back home, Lena has to pay for Peter's travel.

TMZ broke the story ... Peter got pissed when Lena moved with their kid to the U.K. after she claimed he agreed they'd both live there and share custody.

Exclusive Details

1026-jules-michael-wainstein-tmzJules Wainstein's ex tried to pull a fast one by renting out an NYC apartment he had no business hawking because SHE owns it ... according to a new lawsuit, but he denies any wrongdoing.

Michael Wainstein is being sued by Jonathan Sheffer -- a famous conductor -- who says he needed to lease a place for his nanny, and Michael offered the pad ... at a premium. In the suit, Sheffer says Michael demanded more than $20k for rent, security deposit and broker fees.

Sheffer agreed and signed the lease, but according to the docs ... he had maintenance issues with the place, which led to his big discovery -- Michael wasn't the owner.

Sheffer thinks Michael was taking the cash for personal use. He's suing for a complete refund, plus damages.

Wainstein's attorney tells us Sheffer's the one in the wrong, and claims he breached the terms of the lease and is simply looking for "a creative way to cancel his obligations." He adds ... Michael denies all the allegations, and plans to file his own lawsuit against Sheffer.

James Otis is the guy who says he took a pickax to Donald Trump's star on the Walk of Fame, and he tells TMZ ... he's ready and willing to go to jail for the crime.

Otis was totally open with us about what he did and why. He says he attacked Trump's star around 5:45 AM Wednesday because he sees himself as a sort of modern-day Robin Hood.

As we told you, he planned to auction off pieces of the star and donate the money to the accusers' legal defense, because Trump has vowed to sue them. Otis, who considers himself an activist, says his main motivation was standing up for the alleged victims.

Of course, now that he's gone public in taking credit for vandalizing the star ... police are looking for him. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce says the plaque is worth $30k, so he's confessing to a felony.

Otis has a plan to deal with the heat.

10/26/2016 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber and his crew swerved into oncoming traffic in England Tuesday night, and cops are now on the case.

We're told Bieber was part of a 3-car convoy in the Frodsham area of Cheshire when the incident went down. The video doesn't tell the full story, but it shows what appears to be Bieber's SUV pulling to the right side ... which in England is the wrong side.

The SUVs were racing through the streets and swerving in and out of traffic to pass up slower drivers.

Justin is renting a mansion in Cheshire during his "Purpose" tour in the UK. 

An official for the Cheshire Police Department tells TMZ ... they're aware of the footage. They believe Justin was not driving any of the vehicles. The official says, since Justin was a passenger, it's unlikely he'll face any punishment.

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.

10/26/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's obvious Antonio Gates supports the NY Giants decision to fire Josh Brown -- telling TMZ Sports any player who becomes a distraction has gotta go ... period.

Good news for Brown ... Gates doesn't think the kicker's career is necessarily over.

But let's get serious -- who's really gonna sign him now? (spoiler: nobody)

Exclusive Details

1025_brad-pitt-angelina-jolie_tmzThe Brad Pitt child abuse investigation has been expanded to the entire family, including Angelina ... sources connected with Angelina Jolie tell TMZ.

Our sources say ... the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services initially focused on the plane incident in which Brad allegedly struck 15-year-old Maddox.

Our sources say, through various interviews with family members, DCFS has now expanded its investigation to other alleged incidents, including interactions between Brad and Angelina which were allegedly witnessed by 1 or more of their 6 kids.

The Angelina sources say some of the children have been fearful around Brad, and Maddox in particular has problems with his dad. We're told the meeting Brad had with Maddox last week ended quickly because Maddox didn't want to be there.

None of our sources would say if the DCFS interviews turned up anything that would cause the agency to take action related to custody.
