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.

Amber just filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, accusing 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.

7/26/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-taylor-swift-tmzThe fan who tried to bum-rush Taylor Swift during a concert is going away for a long time, but not to prison ... TMZ has learned.

A judge ruled Christian Ewing incompetent to stand trial, and instead ordered him to spend up to 3 years at Patton State Hospital. The San Diego County D.A. says Ewing will remain there until he's ruled competent.

The judge also ordered medication be administered involuntarily, if necessary. 

As we reported, Ewing got into a nasty brawl with security after he rushed the stage at Petco Park last year -- breaking a security guard's rib.

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

Justin Timberlake Slapped at Golf Tourney ... Fan Arrested.

7/25/2016 3:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Timberlake got five to the face from a golf spectator -- and then the spectator got busted by cops ... TMZ has learned.

We obtained video of JT shot Saturday at the American Century Celebrity Pro-Am in Lake Tahoe -- and you clearly see a hand smack Justin as he's walking through the crowd. He didn't take it lightly either.

Justin turned around and yelled, "Why would you do that?" After he walked off, security for the tourney was seen talking to the slaphappy suspect.

Tournament reps saw it as a minor incident, and Justin -- who didn't have a mark on him -- didn't want to press charges ... but when Sheriff's deputies attempted to escort the man off the course things went south.

Law enforcement sources tell us he claimed he just wanted to "touch" Justin and got overzealous -- but refused to leave the premises. We're told he appeared intoxicated and became belligerent. Cops arrested him for disorderly conduct.

Always remember ...

Dr. Dre Searched By Cops in Alleged Racial Road Rage Case

7/25/2016 1:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dr. Dre got cuffed and patted down by Sheriff's deputies outside his Malibu home after an alleged road rage dispute over a guy blocking his driveway ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Dre tell us the motorist had pulled off PCH and stopped in front of Dre's crib. We're told Dre asked him to move, and he did ... but cussed at the mogul as he did it. Dre pulled into his driveway, but the other driver kept yelling -- so Dre pulled out his phone to record video.

Our Dre sources claim the guy said, "Here we go again, another black guy with a gun." L.A. County Sheriffs tell us the motorist called 911 to report someone pulled a gun on him.

When deputies responded they put handcuffs on the Doc and searched him. We're told they found no gun, and let him go. However, the guy insisted on making a citizen's arrest, which means he filled out a report detailing his allegations.

The Sheriff's Dept. will forward that to the District Attorney ... who will decide whether there's a case. Dre was not physically arrested by deputies.

Florida Georgia Line Backstage Cop Trouble Police Pull Escort Detail

EXCLUSIVE

0725-florida-georgia-line-gettyFlorida Georgia Line dissed law enforcement working security at their concert ... according to an Iowa Sheriff who says the band banned officers, and then came crawling back for protection.

Jones County Sheriff Greg Graver tells TMZ he was headed backstage Saturday night at the Great Jones County Fair to discuss security protocol with the band when he was stopped by a crew member and told no uniformed officers were allowed backstage, per the band.

Sheriff Graver says he was told the country duo even threatened to pull the plug on the concert if they saw any cops.

Graver says midway through the performance, he was told the band wanted a police escort out of town after the show -- but he told them he wouldn't spend "one tax dollar assisting them" ... after being disrespected.

He says the band's management scrambled for other law enforcement agencies to provide the escort ... but they also told FGL to kick rocks. They ended up leaving on their own.

A similar incident went down with Wisconsin cops last week. We've reached out to the band ... no word back.

They did tweet, saying they have "nothing but love and respect for the police."

While Lindsay headed to the airport alone, it's interesting to note she's still wearing her giant emerald engagement ring. She also used a shirt with an E.E. Cummings poem on it for cover from photogs.

Very artsy exit.

Peyton Manning Cleared In Extensive PED Investigation ... NFL Says

7/25/2016 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0725-peyton-manning-tmz-01Peyton Manning was NOT pumped full of HGH -- or any other PED -- while recovering from neck surgery in 2011 ... so says the NFL. 

The NFL launched an investigation into Manning after a man in an Al Jazeera America documentary claimed he supplied PEDs to various NFL players ... including Peyton. 

Manning had denied the allegation -- but the NFL launched an investigation anyway back in January ... "led by the NFL’s security and legal teams with support from expert consultants and other professionals."

The NFL says ... "The Mannings were fully cooperative with the investigation and provided both interviews and access to all records sought by the investigators."

The conclusion -- "the NFL found no credible evidence that Peyton Manning was provided with or used HGH or other substances prohibited by the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances."

That being said ... the NFL is still investigating allegations made against other NFL players -- which involve different lines of inquiry and witnesses.

Jeremy Renner's Ex-Wife He's Stiffing Me On Preschool Tuition

EXCLUSIVE

0725-jeremy-renner-sonni-pacheco-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Jeremy Renner's a deadbeat dad who refuses to pay for preschool and catch up on child support ... or so claims his ex-wife.

Sonni Pacheco says Jeremy time and again refuses to pay his half of the $1,600 monthly preschool tuition for their 3-year-old daughter, Ava. In new docs, obtained by TMZ, Sonni also says Renner's fallen behind on child support to the tune of $48,367.

As we reported ... Jeremy and Sonni struck a deal last year for Jeremy to pay $13k a month in child support as part of their divorce settlement -- and he seems to think that should be more than enough dough.

Sonni's docs include a text exchange where Jeremy says, "I'm not sure why you keep coming after more money here Sonni. I don't have the cash to give you. I'm sorry you can't figure out how to care for [Ava] with over 300k."

She's asking the court to make Renner pay for all of Ava's schooling, and all of the back child support.

Notorious Burglar Bunch Member Everyone Knows My Name But I'm Changing all That

EXCLUSIVE

0722-courtney-ames-tmz-01A member of the infamous Burglar Bunch wants a do-over ... with her name. 

Courtney Ames filed docs to change her name to Courtney Shields. As for why ... she says it's to honor her stepdad. Courtney says Mr. Shields "has been in my life since I was 7 and is more of a father to me than my own father." 

Now there's clearly a bonus, because Courtney Ames is notorious as a member of the burglary ring that targeted a bunch of celebs, including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Orlando Bloom.  Her crimes are chronicled all over Google, so the change could get her a job at Walmart for sure.

A judge will decide next month if Courtney becomes Ms. Shields.
