Guess Model Sues I Paid for Bev Hills Luxury Got Roach Motel Hell Instead!

2/19/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0217_model_roaches_compositeA smoke show Guess model says she couldn't drop a deuce without cockroaches dropping on her head -- a nightmare scenario, especially in a high-priced Bev Hills crib.

Romanian hottie Nicoleta Vaculov says she'd dropped a total of $9k to move into the place last summer, but immediately discovered it was literally crawling with roaches. She says it was so bad they were all over her bed and the clothes in her closet.

In the perfect horror movie scene -- she had to cover the vent in her bathroom because las cucarachas were falling on her while she sat on the throne. Go ahead ... picture that.

Nicoleta bolted after a few months and now she's suing her landlord. She blames an overflowing dumpster near her apartment, and says the infestation stressed her out so much she couldn't model. 

And THAT would be a crime ...

0217-plies-tmz-01Plies is already feeling the consequences from his DUI arrest, even before he gets to court -- he's lost his driver's license because he refused to take a breathalyzer test.

Hope he found it -- dude's gonna be hoofin' it for a while.

EXCLUSIVE

0217-sterling-injuries-3

Shelly Sterling's got a bush problem and she may be way beyond a landscaper solution.

Shelly's being sued by one of her tenants, claiming her shoddy yard work caused her severe injuries.

Franchesca Cacciapuoti says she tripped over a rose bush that sprouted onto the walkway and suffered a badly bruised face, as well as a fractured nose and finger.

The 84-year-old retiree says Shelly -- who runs the Sterling Family Trust which manages the building -- failed to properly maintain the walkway.

Cacciapuoti's lawyer, Arthur Liberty, says Shelly's gardeners were sloppy, cutting only a stem here and there rather than cutting them all down to the nub. Arthur says the area where Cacciapuoti tripped is dimly lit.

We've reached out to Shelly, but so far no word back.

Holly Madison Sues Penis Pill Co ... I Never Said Hef Took Your Pills!

2/16/2017 7:13 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0216_holly_madison_hugh_hefner_blackfordge_tmz-2Holly Madison never had Hugh Hefner take any testosterone pills before they got busy -- or at least she never endorsed it -- according to a new lawsuit she's filed.

Madison says she discovered an article online saying she did an interview with Dr. Oz describing how Hef took Blackcore Edge to cure his erectile dysfunction. In her suit, she says that's totally false.

According to the docs, the article made it seem like Holly said, "when Hefner took a pill, 15 minutes later his blood would start pumping! He got stronger, bigger, and lasted as long as an 18 year old." It also made it seem like she said all the girls in the Playboy Mansion benefited from the pills.

Holly not only denies the content of the article, but points out she NEVER did an interview with Dr. Oz. She also says the Blackcore Edge article was made to look like it was affiliated with Men's Health ... but it was a knockoff website.

She's suing the male enhancement company for using her name and image without consent, and for the fake quotes.

Justin Bieber Faked Illness to Skip Depo Lawyers Say Chugging Videos Prove It

2/16/2017 6:02 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0216-justin-bieber-tmz-01Justin Bieber got busted calling in sick for a deposition ... or so claim the lawyers who say they have proof he stood them up due to a night of heavy partying.

The attorneys are repping a songwriter who claims Bieber jacked a sample for "Sorry" -- and had scheduled a Feb 8 depo with Justin. According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Justin's team informed the lawyers just hours beforehand ... he wouldn't be able to because he was "ill."

Mind you, the lawyers say they'd flown to L.A. from Nashville to make it easier for Justin.

They got pissed when they found YouTube videos of JB chugging beers at Bootsy Bellows in the early morning hours of the very day he was supposed to be at the depo. The videos, apparently posted by Beliebers, show Justin drinking at a house party as well as the nightclub.

In docs, they say Justin rubbed their noses in it by posting Instagram pics drinking with friends ... hours after he played hooky.

They're willing to let him make it up, but now they want the court to force Justin to fly to Nashville in early March, and do the depo on their turf. 

We reached out to Justin's team ... no word back.

2/16/2017 11:11 AM PST

0214-robert-durst-tmz-01Prosecutors presented a new witness they want to testify in the Robert Durst murder trial, claiming the star of 'The Jinx' confessed to the woman he's accused of murdering that he killed his wife.

The witness is Nathan "Nick" Allen Chavin, who showed up in court with bodyguards. He's the former boss of Susan Giordano, who prosecutors implied was Durst's lover.

Chavin just testified Susan Berman told him Durst confessed to her he had killed his wife. 

Durst is facing trial for allegedly murdering Berman back in 2000. Prosecutors say Berman was about to blow the whistle on Durst, claiming he confessed to her he killed his first wife back in 1982. Durst was never tried for the death of his wife.

The judge has not ruled whether Chavin can testify at trial.

EXCLUSIVE

0216-justin-beiber-leaving-serafina-blood-hand-AKMGSI-02update_graphic_red_bar11:35 AM PT -- A rep for Serafina tells TMZ the person Bieber allegedly headbutted was not an employee. They also tell us, contrary to law enforcement, no one from the staff called 911. Law enforcement told us the person who called was not the alleged victim but a member of the staff. The restaurant adds, "We always have a pleasant experience with Mr. Bieber whenever he comes to Serafina."update_grey_gray_barJustin Bieber allegedly headbutted a guy at a pre-Grammy party last weekend, and cops are now investigating the incident as a possible crime.

Law enforcement sources tell us the alleged incident went down at 2 AM Saturday at L.A.'s Italian eatery, Serafina ... where Justin's producer pal, Poo Bear, was hosting a shindig.

Several eyewitnesses tell us Bieber was "play fighting" with Kyle Massey when he realized someone from the restaurant staff was recording the action. We're told Justin asked the guy to stop recording and delete the video. The staffer apparently resisted and some partygoers started recording as well ... that's when the eyewitnesses say Justin lunged at the guy.

We're told a restaurant employee -- not the alleged victim -- called the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept and reported the alleged headbutt. When deputies arrived ... Justin had already left. We got a shot of him on his way out.

We're told the alleged victim doesn't want to press charges -- but the misdemeanor battery investigation is still going forward. 

Justin has not been in trouble with the law for more than a year, although a guy filed a police report against Justin Wednesday over a fight after an NBA finals game last June in Cleveland.

We reached out to Justin's camp ... so far no word back.
