0818-brady-bunch-house-GETTY-01The famous 'Brady Bunch' house became more than just a tourist attraction Wednesday ... cops say it was a target for a couple thieves.

8/18/2016 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-kendall-jenner-tmzA guy who has been tailing Kendall Jenner, chasing her, banging on her windows and scaring the hell out of her has just been ordered to stay far far away.

Shavaughn McKenzie has been shadowing Kendall for a long time, and it all came to a head Sunday night at her Hollywood Hills home. We now know details about the encounter that resulted in an arrest and stalking charges.

McKenzie was lying in wait for Kendall to arrive, and when she drove in her gate he followed and then banged on her car window and screamed, "Can I talk to you?" ... this according to the police report.

Kendall started screaming, and cops say McKenzie tried reassuring her, saying, "Hey look, I don't have a gun" as he held his hands in the air to accentuate the point.

According to the report, McKenzie also camped out at her West L.A. condo, once chasing her car as she left and actually running into traffic.

When Kendall moved, McKenzie followed. He's now been charged with misdemeanor stalking but maybe more important ... now that Kendall has a restraining order, thanks to her lawyer, Shawn Holley, if he comes near cops will hook him up.

Breaking News

0818-ryan-lochte-matt-laurer-getty-01Ryan Lochte is changing his tune about the alleged Rio robbery ... sorta ... with new claims about the incident that don't exactly jive with the story he told Billy Bush

First, Matt Lauer says Lochte now insists he did NOT have a gun pressed up against his forehead during the incident -- but rather, one of the gunmen was pointing the gun in his general direction. 

Lauer says he noticed one other difference when he spoke with the swimmer on the phone Wednesday night.  

Lochte now says he did not get "pulled over" by men posing as police -- but rather, 2 men approached their taxi while it was parked at a gas station, where Lochte had used the restroom. Lochte says the crew tried to tell the taxi driver to go, but he wouldn't. 

Lochte says he feels the differences are nothing more than a "traumatic mischaracterization." 

Lauer says he asked Lochte if he made the story up to cover up something else the swimmers were doing that night -- and Ryan adamantly denied that.

Breaking News



10:30 PM PT -- A rep for the USOC says Conger and Bentz have both been released by local authorities ... but will remain in Brazil to continue discussions on Thursday, along with James Feigen, who the rep says is also in contact with investigators.


Team USA swimmers Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz -- who were with Ryan Lochte during the alleged robbery in Rio -- got yanked off an airplane as they were trying to leave Brazil.

The USOC confirms to TMZ Sports ... Conger and Bentz were detained by authorities, but says it's still gathering information as to find out exactly why.

Earlier on Tuesday, cops in Rio said they were suspicious of the swimmers' claim they were robbed at gunpoint early Sunday morning. The USOC says cops went to the Olympic Village to interview Lochte and teammate James Feigen, but discovered they'd already left -- Locate's actually back in the States. 

NBC says Feigen was slated to be on the same flight with Bentz and Conger, but never showed up.

Looks like they nabbed Conger and Bentz at the last possible moment. Late Wednesday night, cops were still interviewing them at the airport.

Breaking News

0816-aaron-hernandez-GETTY-01Convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez is expected to appear in court Tuesday -- where a judge is hoping to set a trial date for the double murder the ex-NFL star is accused of carrying out in 2012. 

Hernandez is currently serving a life sentence for the 2013 slaying of Odin Lloyd -- but he's also accused of gunning down 2 men in a drive-by shooting after leaving a nightclub in Boston. 

Prosecutors say Hernandez killed the men because one of them spilled a drink on him inside the club. 

The 26-year-old ex-New England Patriots star is scheduled to appear in Suffolk Superior Court for a status hearing and the judge has said he hopes to set a start date for the trial. 

Hernandez is now armed with a brand new lawyer -- Jose Baez, who famously led Casey Anthony's defense when she was accused of murdering her daughter. 

'Making a Murderer' Ex-Fiancee Good For Brendan ... But Don't Let Steven Out!

8/12/2016 3:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0812-jodi-stachowski-brendan-dassey-steven-avery-ap-netflixSteven Avery's ex-fiancee, Jodi Stachowski, is glad Brendan Dassey may be finally getting out of prison... but she's terrified it could lead to the release of her ex.

Jodi tells us ... Brendan's impending freedom could put pressure on the courts to release Steven, who she firmly believes is guilty of raping and killing Teresa Halbach. She says she fears Steven, whom she not only believes is capable of murder ... he's already tasted blood.

Jodi has great sympathy for Brendan and believes the State of Wisconsin has a duty to take care of him because they willfully destroyed his life.  

Steven Avery's brother, Chuck, has a different view. He tells us he won't celebrate until the other person wrongly convicted is also freed ... his brother.

As we reported, Brendan is not home free. Prosecutors have 90 days to decide if they'll retry him.

8/12/2016 7:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0812-johnny-depp-amber-heard-hollywood-camera-man-fun-art-TMZ-Getty-03Johnny Depp and Amber Heard might have been victims of a Peeping Tom who shot upskirt videos during the shooting of several of his movies ... so claim 3 women in a new lawsuit.

Kevin Thomas Roy -- a longtime assistant director with credits on Depp's 'Rum Diary' and "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" -- is being sued by 3 women for invasion of privacy and emotional distress ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

The women say Roy was closely associated with Depp's production team and there's a "high probability" Amber was secretly shot. The suit doesn't specifically mention which movie ... but Amber worked with Johnny in 'Rum.'

The suit claims Johnny may have also been a victim, but no specifics are provided.

Roy is accused of using his phone and planting hidden cameras in bathrooms and other private areas to videotape his friends, co-workers and actors. The suit alleges Roy kept videos going back 7 years ... showing people in various states of undress.

And get this ... according to the suit, Roy secretly shot video of his wife's sister's honeymoon.

According to the docs ... Roy's wife discovered the videos and turned it over to cops. He eventually pled no contest to 2 counts of invasion of privacy and was booted from Directors Guild of America.

Jon Jones Cuts Deal In Drag Racing Case ... Gets Driving School

8/11/2016 9:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0811-jon-jones-tmz-01Jon Jones was just ordered to go back to school ... sentenced to complete an aggressive driving course as part of his punishment from his alleged drag racing incident in New Mexico. 

As we previously reported, Jones was pulled over on March 24 in Albuquerque after an officer says the UFC superstar was drag racing on his way home from an MMA gym. 

Jon called BS on the cop -- and began to cuss him out ... calling the officer a "f***ing pig" and a "liar."

Jones was issued several citations for unlawful drag racing, unlawful exhibition driving, unlawful use of modification of exhaust systems, failure to maintain traffic lane and improper display of registration plate.

But moments ago, Jones agreed to a deal with prosecutors -- pleading guilty to just unlawful use of modification of exhaust systems and improper display of registration plate.

In exchange he was ordered to complete 60 hours of community service and complete an aggressive driving course. 

If he does not complete his terms, he faces up to 90 days in jail. 

The good news for Jon ... he already has 51 hours of community service completed and a rep for the UFC star says he already knocked out the driving course!

For the mathematically challenged ... Jon has 9 to go -- and given his rate of community service, he should be done by the end of the weekend.

0810-main-marilyn-tmz-wm-01Marilyn Monroe's former Palm Springs bungalow was burgled Tuesday ... but we're told the crooks got away.

Law enforcement tells us they responded to an active burglar alarm and immediately saw the front door had been kicked in.

The home was recently owned by an elderly woman but it appears she died recently and the home was sitting vacant. 

We're told officers combed the area and found power tools on a nearby lawn that appeared to have been stolen from the house. 


Marilyn called the bungalow her second home in the late '50s, and Palm Springs proudly displayed a statue honoring the star until 2014.

8/10/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0809_aqib_talib_Shooting_scene_police_photos_launchTMZ Sports has obtained photos from inside the Dallas strip club where Denver Broncos star Aqib Talib may or may not have been shot back in June ... and it's a bloody mess.

Talib was shot on June 5th -- and even though he told police it happened at a nearby park, at least one official police document (obtained by TMZ Sports) lists the "offense location" as V Live strip club.

The photos show trails of blood inside and outside of the club -- along with shattered glass, knocked over furniture and shell casings on the ground. 

Cops say at least two other men were shot inside the club that night -- and one of the victims claimed the shooter was a "black male in a white shirt [who] pulled out a handgun and began to fire into the crowd." 

The two men (not Talib) were photographed in the hospital by law enforcement that night to document their injuries.

There are reports Talib accidentally shot himself in the leg while trying to pull out his gun -- but Talib has neither confirmed nor denied that.

So far, no arrests have been made.
