Wisconsin Sued Hate to Badger Ya ... But We Want Our Irish Butter Back!

3/17/2017 1:34 PM PDT

0317_Kerrygold-butter_compositeSome butter-hungry Wisconsinites are yelling Erin go Bragh, and suing the state just to get their fave Irish spread back on shelves!

The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty is suing the state's Dept. of Agriculture on behalf of 4 pissed off consumers and a grocery store, claiming the Butter Law of 1954 is depriving residents of enjoying Kerrygold butter.

The old law requires butter to be graded by U.S. or Wisconsin inspectors ... which isn't possible for Kerrygold because it's made and packaged in Ireland. The advocacy group claims the law's true motive is killing competition for Wisconsin's dairy industry.

According to docs, the butter 5-0's been cracking down, and violators risk jail time and hefty fines.

The butter lovers want the court to overturn the 1954 law. A rep for the Dept. of Agriculture tells us "enforcement action has been limited to notifying retailers of what the law says."

So, no arrests yet, but also no Kerrygold. Sláinte!

Kendall Jenner Robbed Investigators Comb House for Clues

3/16/2017 5:30 PM PDT

Kendall Jenner got a visit from CSI -- a forensic fingerprint specialist looking through her house for evidence in the $200k jewelry heist.

The investigator coolly entered Kendall's Hollywood Hills pad Thursday with his briefcase full of CSI tools to find any prints left behind. The guy sounded confident on the way out, but fingerprints around most of the house could be meaningless because ... as we reported, there was a bunch of people in the house.

Kendall's jewelry box might yield some clues IF the crooks touched it or any of the jewels left behind. 

We broke the story, cops believe it was an inside job.

Dunlap was recently cut by the Chargers -- but Robinson says he's in good spirits and is focused on his family and continuing his NFL career elsewhere.

EXCLUSIVE

0315_mischa-barton-TMZMischa Barton got not just one but 2 restraining orders against 2 former boyfriends ... one or both of whom she believes is peddling a sex tape.

As we reported, Mischa has filed a police report after stories surfaced someone is trying to sell a sex tape featuring the actress for $500k. She said in a news conference the culprit is a former BF, but she didn't name names.

TMZ has obtained 2 restraining orders Mischa got Tuesday against Jon Zacharias and Adam Shaw. She said in the docs she started dating Jon last October and says he took videos of "us having intimate relations, photos of me naked in the shower, and other videos and photos of me unclothed."

Mischa says all videos and photos were taken without her knowledge or permission.

She goes on to say she broke up with Jon after she learned he was only interested in her because she was a celebrity. She then started dating Adam, a former friend of Jon's. She says Adam told her Jon had bragged to him he had the videos and photos. She goes on to say Adam copied the photos and videos and tried to erase them from Jon's computer.

She says Adam turned out to be a bad guy, forging her signature on checks.  

Mischa says both guys are desperate for money, and she believes one or both are the ones who are peddling the sex tape.

A judge ordered both Adam and Jon to stay clear of Mischa and prohibited them from selling, distributing, giving away or showing any of the videos or photos.

NFL Punishes Jets Tight End For Dumbest DUI Ever

3/15/2017 2:30 PM PDT
Breaking News

The NY Jets tight end who stupidly talked cops INTO arresting him for DUI has been punished by the NFL ... and will be suspended for 2 games. 

Austin Seferian-Jenkins was pulled over for a routine traffic stop back in September -- and was thiiiis close to being let go ... until he started running his drunken mouth. 

During the arrest, Austin told cops he needed to take a "huge s**t" ... the cop begged him not to do it in the squad car. 

ASJ eventually pled no contest to reckless driving and got probation and community service. 

But the NFL found he violated the league's personal conduct policy -- and punished him as well. 

Guess it woulda been worse had he actually crapped in the car.

LaVar Ball Family Home Burglarized During High School Game (Update)

EXCLUSIVE

0315-lavar-ball-family-instagram-02

update_graphic_red_bar9:45 AM PT -- LaVar Ball just spoke about the incident ... saying it appears only a window was broken at the home. 

He then told ESPN, "I wish I was there! It ain't hard to get in my home ... it's hard to get out."update_grey_gray_barThe family home of LaVar Ball -- and his 3 superstar sons -- was hit by burglars in Chino Hills Tuesday night while LiAngelo and LaMelo were playing in a televised high school playoff game. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... neighbors heard a suspicious crash sound at the Ball home around 8 PM and immediately called police. 

We're told cops raced to the scene and when they got there, they saw a pile of Ball family belongings in the center of the home ... as if they'd been rounded up. 

Our law enforcement sources tell us the operating theory is that due to the quick response of neighbors and cops, the bad guys didn't get the chance to make off with the goods before police arrived ... so they left the loot and bolted. 

We're told cops are on the case ... taking fingerprints and looking for surveillance video.  At one point, cops even used a helicopter to search for the suspects. 

As for the Ball family, we're told it's typical for cops to instruct victims to go through their house and check for missing items.

A rep for the family tells us, "Everybody is safe."

Taylor Swift I'm Done Fighting Spotify I'm Eyeing My Own Streaming Service

3/15/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0314-taylor-swift-gettyTaylor Swift is done fighting Spotify and other streaming services for royalties, and apparently wants to become the master of her own destiny by starting her own streaming service.

Taylor's filed docs giving her the right to brand a website "featuring non-downloadable multi-media content in the nature of audio recordings." Sounds like a streaming service to us. She wants to call the website "Swifties."

You'll recall Taylor famously feuded with Spotify over royalties and ended up yanking her catalog back in 2014. The move sent Spotify and others into crisis mode, fearing other artists might follow.

It looks like Taylor's going beyond a streaming service. According to the docs, she's looking to launch a line of music products, including guitars, guitar picks, guitar straps and drumsticks. Her plans also include organizing retreats, educational camps and self-guided online courses. 

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