Taylor Swift, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne Terrorized by Death Threats

5/23/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0520-swift-delevingne-hadid-tmz-01Taylor Swift and her superstar posse are under attack from an Internet troll who's threatening to kill them ... and cops are on the hunt for the guy.

We've learned the guy has terrorized Taylor, saying, "I will kill some of you." He also targeted Gigi Hadid, tweeting, "people gon die they're gon die die die die!" And Cara Delevingne was targeted ... "I will kill your friends and I am excited about it."

Chrissy Teigen, who's not part of Taylor's posse, was also in the lunatic's crosshairs, with this ... "gonna give it one shot, but I probably gonna end up murdering your friends."  

Law enforcement sources tell us they first got the heads up about the cyber threats from director Kyle Newman, whose wife, Jaime King, was also on the receiving end of threats.

Police got a search warrant to comb through Twitter's records that could lead them to their culprit. We're told so far cops have not gotten the info they need to close in.

5/21/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0520_scott_disick_tmzScott Disick was hit by thieves where he lives ... and they took a fortune in watches and jewelry ... TMZ has learned.

Disick was in Cannes late last week when someone got into his Hidden Hills home and looted his famous watch collection. Scott has publicly bragged about the timepieces, which include a Rolex Yacht-Master II valued at $32,000. Another watch goes for $48,000.  

We don't know how many watches were taken, but law enforcement tells us there were "multiples worth a significant amount of money." 

Cops believe it's an inside job since there's no sign of forced entry. Scott is known to let lots of people in his home, especially for parties. It's more than suspicious his home was hit just after he got on a plane for France.

5/20/2016 2:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0512_george_zimmerman_gettyGeorge Zimmerman will now make $100,000 more than anticipated for the sale of the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin -- because he got a much bigger offer for the 9 mm weapon.

Zimmerman had reached a deal with a Florida bar owner to sell it Friday for $150k -- but at the last minute Zimmerman pulled the plug when he found out someone else was offering $250k.

Sources connected to Zimmerman tell us a female bidder contacted his attorney Thursday to make a deposit. Zimmerman initially didn't take the offer seriously, but we're told her funds were verified before the auction ended. 

We're told it's now a done deal at the $250k price tag. Still unclear if the purchaser will remain anonymous.

Allred has been an adversary of Hefner's for a while, claiming he facilitated Cosby's alleged sexual abuse at the Mansion. Cosby has denied the allegations. Hef has been mum.

Hef, who is 90 and ill, was videotaped. 

Nipsey Hussle Sizzurp Charge Dropped Still Gets Jail Time

5/20/2016 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0520-nipsey-hussle-tmz-01Nipsey Hussle dodged charges for his sizzurp arrest by copping a plea for his suspended license charge ... and the end result is a couple days behind bars.

The rapper entered a no contest plea last week for driving on a suspended license, and got a 5 day jail sentence. Nipsey got credit for 3 days served, so he only has 2 left on his tab.

Prosecutors dismissed the additional charge of codeine possession. As we reported, cops say he had all the ingredients for sizzurp in his car when they pulled him over last June.

Nipsey hasn't checked in yet to serve his time. He has until July 1. 

TV Reporter Arrested Live from a Front Yard ... I'm Taking a Crap!!

5/20/2016 6:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520-jonathan-lowe-gpd-01Here's the straight poop ... an Arizona TV reporter got his ass arrested for doing a really s***** job -- in someone's front yard.

Jonathan Lowe was working a story earlier this week in a Goodyear, AZ neighborhood when nature called. According to the police report ... Lowe left his news van, grabbed a bunch of papers and walked across the street, copped a squat and "proceeded to defecate in the yard of the residence."

Someone must've spotted Lowe doing his biz and called cops. When the officer showed up at Lowe's news van .. the reporter said, "I know what you want to talk to me about."

He went on to explain he'd been feeling sick and didn't want to bother anyone -- which is a shame, since police say the homeowner told them she would have been totally willing to let him use her bathroom. As it is, he got arrested for public defecation.

At least Lowe can say he's the #2 reporter in town.

Boxer Jermain Taylor Dodges Prison ... In Violent Gun Cases

5/20/2016 8:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0520-jermain-taylor-getty-01Ex-boxing champ Jermain Taylor just caught a HUUUGE break -- he will NOT go to prison for his role in multiple frightening and violent incidents ... as long as he keeps his nose clean. 

Taylor appeared in court for 3 different cases: 

1) The time he shot his cousin in 2014

2) The time he pulled out a gun at an MLK Day parade and fired shots in the air 

3) The time he beat up a fellow patient at the rehab facility where he was being treated 

Taylor had previously pled guilty to 2 counts of battery, 2 counts of terroristic threats, 5 counts of aggravated assault and possesion of a controlled substance. 

On Friday, the former champ was back in an Arkansas courtroom -- where the judge gave him a 19 year suspended prison sentence. 

Which means ... as long as Taylor completes 120 hours of community service, pays fines and court costs and passes regular drug screening tests, he will NOT serve the 19 year sentence. 

But one screwup ... and the judge could force him to serve the entire term behind bars. 

Considering the allegations against him, Taylor caught a huge break.

EXCLUSIVE

0518-chumlee-tmzChumlee is dodging serious jail time in his drugs and guns case, and will NOT face any sex assault charges ... TMZ has learned.

The "Pawn Stars" cast member was busted back in March when Vegas cops raided his home during a sex assault investigation. TMZ broke the story ... cops say they found at least one gun as well as a bunch of marijuana.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... the D.A. will charge Chumlee with felony possession of a firearm and felony possession of a controlled substance -- but the twist is ... his attorneys got him a sweet plea deal.

We don't know all the terms of the deal, but our sources say the big one is Chumlee will get probation and NO jail time. We're told the 2 felonies will eventually become misdemeanors once he completes probation. 

As for the alleged sexual assault ... we're told police and Chumlee's attorneys, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld, ran an exhaustive investigation. Both sides found there was not enough evidence to charge him.

We're told the judge still needs to sign off on the plea deal.

EXCLUSIVE

0518-zimmerman-getty-02George Zimmerman's auction for the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin has closed ... and the winning bid topped $120,000.

We're told roughly 7 verified users participated in the bidding war. Zimmerman has to verify the winner and his or her funds before the sale is finalized. The top bidder is anonymous at this point, due to the auction site's rules.

TMZ previously reported United Gun Group decided to pull the listing due to fake bids driving up the price. The site added a private email verification to sift out the fake bids.

There are reports the gun sold for $138k, but we're told that number is one of those fake bids.

Ex-Titans LB Keith Bulluck Convicted in DUI Case

EXCLUSIVE

0517-keith-bucket-getty-01Ex-Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck has struck a plea deal in his DUI case ... stemming from a February arrest, when the 39-year-old smashed his car into a light pole. 

As we previously reported, Bulluck -- who was nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2015 -- was busted in Nashville on Feb. 23rd when cops responded to the crash scene around 3 AM and realized Keith was bombed

Bulluck appeared in court early Tuesday morning -- where he pled guilty to reckless endangerment and, in exchange, he was sentenced to 1 year probation and ordered to pay court fines. 

Cops never said if Bulluck was injured in the wreck -- but he's been traveling around the world and recently joked about wanting to fight Conor McGregor ... so we're guessing he's okay.

Breaking News

0516-WENDELL-PIERCE-mug-shot-01

Wendell Pierce from "The Wire" remembers things much differently from the alleged victim in his battery arrest -- because he says HE was the one held against his will.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... police say Pierce and his girlfriend started talking politics with three people in the hallway of their Atlanta hotel. As we've reported -- Pierce backs Hillary Clinton and the alleged victim is a Bernie Sanders supporter.

Pierce's side of the story is he followed the Bernie fan and her friends to their room as they argued about Clinton and Sanders -- but stayed outside the room. He claims they tried to pull him into the room ... as he tried to run away.

The alleged victim has a more brutal memory of what happened. She says when Pierce followed, he stuck his arm in the door and tried to enter her hotel room. She claims when they tried to push him out, Pierce grabbed her hoodie and ripped it so hard it came off.

Pierce was booked for simple battery

EXCLUSIVE

0512-madeleine-stowe-tmz-01Madeleine Stowe says she survived a terrifying ordeal -- a home intruder putting a gun to her neck in the middle of the night, and making off with $75k worth of jewelry. 

According to law enforcement docs ... Stowe and her husband, Brian Benben, were asleep at home last September, when she was awakened by someone rummaging through their master bathroom. Madeleine, who was nude at the time, says she went to check it out -- and was confronted by a Latino man, the intruder, who pointed a handgun to her neck. 

The former "Revenge" star told police the man spoke in broken English and demanded, "I want all the valuable, I want something." She says she gave him a bag filled with $75k worth of antique jewelry, and then he made a clean getaway.

 A few months later cops busted the suspect, Walter Canizalez, as he was allegedly attempting another heist. Police believe he's pulled 3 other armed home robberies, and he's been charged with more than 15 counts ... including robbery and sexual battery.  

When Canizalez was caught, cops say he was wearing a Spiderman mask -- just as he was during some of the alleged robberies.

WWE's Adam Rose Faces the Judge Wife Begs For Mercy

5/12/2016 7:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Shackled and sporting an orange jail jumpsuit, WWE superstar Adam Rose appeared in Florida court Thursday in his domestic violence case ... where his wife begged the judge to cut the guy a break. 

Rose was arrested Wednesday morning after allegedly roughing up his wife -- and then smacking the phone away from her when she called 911. He's been charged with battery and tampering with a witness. 

The judge wanted to hit Rose with a restraining order -- barring him from contact with his wife. But shockingly, she begged the court to reconsider ... because she wants him to come home. 

During the hearing, Rose's wife said they have a special needs child who needs both parents.

Rose's lawyer also argued Rose's actions were "not aggressive or painful" but rather "more of a passionate, 'Hey, let's talk about this.'"

The judge mentioned a PREVIOUS domestic violence incident in March -- and expressed concern about a pattern of abusive behavior. But in the end, Rose's wife got her wish ... and the judge held off on the restraining order.

The judge also set a low bond -- $1,000 -- which means Rose will probably be out of custody by the end of the day. He's been ordered to see his pastor for counseling once a week until his next court date in June.
