1120_milla-jovovich_TMZSomeone threatened to bomb Milla Jovovich's mother and now cops are investigating.

To make things worse, the caller claims to be involved in a gang. According to a search warrant obtained by TMZ ... Milla's mom never clued her in about the calls. 

The LAPD is trying to track down the suspect.

11/21/2015 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110-blac-chyna-car-crash-accident-photos-launch-3Blac Chyna was telling the truth when she said she wasn't behind the wheel during a hit and run crash earlier this month ... we've learned, the driver's a reality TV star, and she's in big trouble.

TMZ broke the story ... Chyna's white BMW nailed another vehicle carrying 3 passengers in the valley. Witnesses say two African-American women in mini skirts bailed from the Beamer and Chyna remained adamant, it wasn't her. 

Now, sources close to the investigation are backing BC up. We're told Paige Addison from the show "Boss Nails" met with the LAPD earlier this week with her attorney and admitted she was the driver.

We're told Paige told cops Blac Chyna was not in the car and not at the crash scene.

Law enforcement sources say the case will be referred to prosecutors ... leaving the scene of an accident where there are injuries can be prosecuted as a felony.

We reached out to Paige ... so far, no word back. 


Diddy at Court Jamaican Me Marry Yu!!

11/20/2015 3:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Diddy had his day of reckoning for that fight with UCLA football's strength coach -- but the whole thing turned into a wedding celebration!

Diddy was scheduled to meet with the L.A.City Attorney for what amounts to a slap on the wrist in the infamous kettlebell incident, and on the way out of court it was a serious love fest. Diddy was absolutely swarmed by a wedding party that was piling out of court at the same time. 

The Bad Boy honcho joked (we think) he actually married off the Jamaican couple -- and then bolted for his waiting ride.

Two things you gotta see here: 1. Diddy's smooth escape when we pressed about the UCLA case ... and 2. This bridal party is definitely just getting started!

You can hear the air horns blaring now.

breaking news

1120-michael-bennett-GETTY-03Ex-NFL running back Michael Bennett -- a 1st round draft pick in 2001-- was arrested in California Thursday after cops say he forged his GF's parents names to take out $325k in loans. 

According to police, the victims -- both over the age of 65 -- became suspicious when they got mail from brokers about the loan.  

Officials say Bennett -- who spent 10 seasons in the NFL -- stole important financial documents from his girlfriend's parents and forged loan docs to get the money.  

And what did he spend the cash on?? 

"It looks like he used the money to purchase at least one vehicle and go on some shopping trips," Sgt. Ed Crosby told 

Cops say Bennett has already confessed to the crime -- he's currently behind bars ... being held on $1 MILLION bail. He's been charged with 9 felonies including grand theft, burglary, forgery and elderly abuse. 

It's not the first time Bennett's been accused of loan fraud -- he was sentenced to 15 months in prison in 2012 for wire fraud.

1120-vanna-band-FACEBOOK-01A fan of punk rock has a bonus for his friends ... he can blow his nose in the key of C. 

The fan isn't happy about it ... in fact, he's suing the band Vanna for musical assault. Eric Quiros was enjoying the punk band's performance at Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip back in 2013.  

Eric says without warning a guitar flew through the air and struck him smack in the face. According to the lawsuit, Eric's nose was broken in 5 places. He also suffered lacerations to his face and a guitar string apparently punctured his nose, with a portion lodging inside it.

Poor Eric had surgery to fix his schnoz and remove the cord. 

He's suing Vanna and the Whisky for unspecified damages.


'Alaskan Bush People' Your Asses Belong in Jail ... Judge Rips Up Plea Deal

breaking news

1120-alaskan-bush-people-DISCOVERY-CHANNEL-01The "Alaskan Bush People" just got smacked down by a judge who made one thing clear -- if you steal from Alaska ... you're gonna do jail time.

Billy Brown -- the dad on the popular Discovery Channel show -- and his son Joshua Brown thought they'd struck a sweet plea deal. As we reported ... they copped to lying on their annual Alaskan oil refund docs and essentially stealing $8,000 from the state. The deal called for them to pay back the money, but dodge jail.

Not soooo fast -- on Thursday the judge in the case rejected that deal and said they deserve jail time for jacking oil funds from honest Alaskans. 

The Browns -- who phoned in to the hearing -- and prosecutors will have to go back to the drawing board.

1119-jason-davis-arrested-TMZ-02Chaka Khan should be worried about the people with whom her son is hanging out. And if oil baron and Hollywood kingpin Marvin Davis were alive, he should be worried his grandson is hanging with Chaka's son ... because both were just arrested together.

Chaka's son Damien Holland and Marvin's grandson Jason "Gummy Bear" Davis were arrested Thursday in Bev Hills, for allegedly cruising around in a stolen car ... and that's just for starters.

Bev Hills cops spotted the pair in a white Audi Q5. Cops searched the car and found stolen mail.   

Davis and Holland were arrested and booked for identity theft and possession of a stolen property. We're told cops are still investigating and they could be booked for possession of a stolen car.

Fresno State Football Player Now Banned From Campus Too After Death Threat Arrest

11/19/2015 4:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1119-chris-pryor-facebook-fresno-stateEx-Fresno State football player Chris Pryor is in even deeper trouble with his school -- he's been booted from attending classes in the wake of his alleged death threat "prank."

As TMZ Sports first reported ... Pryor got kicked off the team 2 weeks ago after posting a rant on social media that included a threat to "take a headshot" at a student using an M4 Carbine rifle.

Bulldogs football immediately kicked him off the team, and now we've learned the former walk-on player has also been banned from campus altogether. The athletic department tells us Pryor will remain suspended at least until the university holds a conduct hearing, and it's unclear when it will be held.

Pryor's family had no comment about the campus ban. His father previously claimed the threat was merely a "prank." Still, he's facing a felony charge for a criminal threat.

Apollo Nida Feds to Seize Prized Ducati Watch Out Kandi Burruss

11/19/2015 2:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1119_Apollo-Nida_kandi_burruss_tmz_gettyThe feds are are hot on the trail of Apollo Nida's super expensive ATV and motorcycle ... and it's led them to the doorstep of 'RHOA' co-star Kandi Burruss.

The government is on the hunt for anything of value that Apollo owns, so his victims can be made whole. Apollo owns nearly $2 mil in restitution for money laundering and check fraud.

As he sits in prison, the feds are looking to seize Apollo's 2014 Ducati and Yamaha Raptor ATV.  It looks like he was trying to hide them, because they're not at his house. They're tucked away at Kandi's.  

But Apollo has a problem ... 'RHOA' aired an episode Sunday where Kandi confessed the wheels were in her garage.  We've learned 2 days later the feds were in court, getting an order from a judge allowing them to pay a visit to Kandi and grab the fancy toys.

Here's the good news. The feds are fans of 'Real Housewives.'


Jared Fogle Sketch When You Find Out You Ain't Getting ... Subway for 15 Years

11/19/2015 12:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1119-courtroom-fogle-sketchJared Fogle had that 15.6 year stare while sitting in federal court Thursday for his sentencing ... and a sketch artist captured it perfectly.

Fogle wore a black suit with red tie, and no eyeglasses. We'd ask why the long face, molester -- but that seems kinda obvious.

Meanwhile, Fogle's attorney got the Tom Brady treatment ... which, oddly, is not a good thing.

Derek Jeter Lawsuit Is B.S. ... 50 Isn't Too Black for Undies Co.

breaking news

1119_derek_jeter_50_TMZDerek Jeter is shooting down the allegation he backed out of an underwear deal because he thought 50 Cent would make the company "too urban."

Jeter calls the claims made in a lawsuit from Frigo's majority owner "categorically false." TMZ Sports broke the story ... Mathias Ingvarsson accused the ex-Yankees superstar of quitting his promotional deal when 50 signed on as a brand ambassador.

Well, Jeter told Page Six ... the accusation is absurd because, "I facilitated the introductory meeting between 50 Cent and the company, so it makes absolutely no sense that I would object to 50 Cent."

Further, Jeter says Ingvarsson had threatened to launch a negative PR campaign against him. Jeter also says he's getting ready to sue Ingvarsson, and says he has documentation to prove he NEVER agreed to be a public spokesman for the brand.

Jared Fogle Sentenced to 15 Plus Years in Prison

11/19/2015 10:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news



11:25 PM PST -- A note from one of the victim's mother was revealed in court. She said, "My daughter has been impacted hard through all of this." Adding, her daughter "contemplated suicide" and "lives on sleep medication, depression medication, and anxiety medication." update_grey_gray_bar Jared Fogle just had the book thrown at him ... a judge just sentenced him to 15.6 years in prison -- more than the proposed plea deal -- after his attorneys tried to blame weight loss for his "mild pedophilia."

Although the deal he struck with prosecutors was for a sentencing ranging from 5 to 12 1/2 years, Judge Tanya Walton Pratt was not bound by the deal. Nevertheless, Fogle rolled the dice this morning and formally pled guilty. After the sentence was imposed, he was remanded to custody. 

Since Fogle will be in federal prison, the standard time served is 85% ... which would be just over 13 years, making him a free man in 2029. He'll be 51 when he's released.

When Fogle gets out, he'll be on lifetime supervised release.  

Fogle's lawyers submitted legal docs making their case for the minimum sentence -- 5 years in prison -- in part because his molestation victims were 16 and 17, close to legal age.

Fogle's lawyer had an expert testify Fogle had a compulsive eating disorder and when he lost weight he replaced that compulsion with hypersexuality.

There were 12 victims of child porn and 2 victims of child prostitution.
