Milton Bradley Convicted In Dom. Violence Case

6/13/2018 3:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

For the 2nd time in his life, ex-MLB star Milton Bradley has been convicted of domestic violence ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The 40-year-old former All-Star was initially charged with misdemeanor spousal battery stemming from a January incident at his L.A. home. He was facing up to a year in jail. 

His wife told responding officers Bradley roughed her up and fled the home by the time cops arrived. 

Now, we've learned Bradley struck a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to plead no contest to domestic battery and, in exchange, he was sentenced to 36 months of probation. 

He is also required to complete 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling and pay various fines and fees. Bradley was also sentenced to 2 days in jail, but got credit for time served. 

As part of his probation, Bradley is also not allowed to own or possess a firearm. 

Years ago, Bradley spent 15 months behind bars after he was convicted of beating up his previous wife

'The Bachelorette' Contestant Lincoln Adim Convicted Indecent Assault and Battery

6/13/2018 1:01 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

1:36 PM PT -- A law enforcement source tells us ... during the alleged incident, Lincoln grabbed the woman's hands and placed them on his own chest and stomach. We're told he then allegedly groped her breasts and grinded up on the woman. It all happened on a ship called Spirit of Boston.

A contestant on the new season of "The Bachelorette" -- who's still in contention -- became a convicted criminal charged with a sex crime just a week before the premiere.

Law enforcement sources in Suffolk County, NY tell TMZ Lincoln Adim was convicted of indecent assault and battery on May 21 from an incident that occurred in 2016. Adim was accused of groping and assaulting a woman on a cruise that year.

Crazy enough, his sentence was handed down right before the new season aired on May 28. Adim was sentenced to a year behind bars, with that term being suspended for a two-year probationary period. He also has to stay away from the victim, and attend 3 AA meetings per week for those 2 years.

If he doesn't comply with the judge's terms, he'd have to serve out a year in jail. If he does ... he can avoid that. Oh, and he's also expected to register as a sex offender.

Adim has not been eliminated 3 weeks into the reality show. He's still among the remaining men and vying for Becca Kufrin's hand in marriage ... no biggie, right?

Conor McGregor Finally Meeting with Dana White After Bus Attack Hearing

6/13/2018 1:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Dana White says he will finally come face-to-face with Conor McGregor after the UFC star's bus attack hearing ... where they will presumably talk about Conor's next fight.

"He and I are meeting on the 18th of this month," Dana tells TMZ Sports. Unclear where the meeting will take place. 

As for Conor's criminal case in New York City, Dana says he's had ZERO involvement in McGregor's defense and has no idea what will happen in court on Thursday.

Sources connected to the case tell us Conor has been working on a plea deal with prosecutors -- which is important for McGregor since he's facing up to 7 years in prison for the April attack which left several people injured. 

But, White says he's completely in the dark on that -- "I don't know whats gonna happen. I don't know what Conor has planned. I don't know what Conor and his team have worked on."

"Whatever happens tomorrow ... I will be as shocked as you."

Stan Lee Gets Restraining Order Against Business Partner

6/13/2018 11:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2:22 PM PT -- According to the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- the order was filed by Stan's former attorney, Tom Lallas. Lallas claims that Morgan took control of Stan's home in February and moved him to a condo in June ... he says Morgan has isolated Stan from friends and family members.

As for the incident with the gunmen, the docs claim on May 30 cops and adult protective services conducted a welfare check on Stan. Lallas says Morgan arrived to Stan's home during the welfare check but was kept out of the home by security guards. The docs claim Morgan then made a false 911 call telling cops 3 unidentified burglary suspects (the detectives) were inside with Stan and had locked everyone else out.

A judge has granted the order -- which says Morgan must stay 100 yards away -- and a hearing is scheduled for July 6.

1:33 PM PT -- Keya tells TMZ, "I have taken great care of Stan Lee for the past many years, and have never had a problem directly with Stan. I have a fantastic relationship with him for the past many years as he has stated countless times on the record and I literally saved his life once."

He continues, "This is a witchhunt by his daughter and her lawyer against me because she cannot stand the fact Stan likes me so much. I will 100% prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the allegations against me are false. And I will definitely take legal action against anyone who is making up these lies. The truth will come out."

Stan Lee has gone to court to ask for protection against his presumably soon-to-be-ex-business partner and friend, Keya Morgan.

Lee was granted a restraining order in Los Angeles on the heels of Morgan's arrest on suspicion of filing a false police report. It was reported Morgan may have lied when he called cops after two suspected gunmen allegedly showed up at Stan's Hollywood Hills home on the night of May 31 demanding money.

The case type of the newly filed docs is "Elder/Dependent Adult Abuse Prevention."

Morgan's been a constant fixture at Lee's side over the last year -- helping create videos with the Marvel legend at his home -- and accompanying him to conventions.

Stan's had a rough year ... battling pneumonia as well as money issues. He filed a BILLION dollar lawsuit last month against POW! Entertainment claiming the company took advantage of him and stole his name.

He also claimed a former business partner stole his blood and used it to fill pens that would sell as collectables for a fortune, and also used it to stamp his signature on certificates of authentication on certain comic books.

Breaking News

Conor McGregor has boarded a jet and is returning to the United States ... where he's scheduled to appear in an NYC courtroom to face charges for his attack on a UFC bus back in April.

Several people were injured in the incident -- including multiple UFC fighters and staff. 

Conor spent the night in jail and eventually flew back to Ireland.

But Tuesday, McGregor posted a photo in front of a private jet -- presumably the plane he'll take to return to the U.S.

McGregor is reportedly working on a plea deal with prosecutors -- and, since he's facing 7 years in prison if convicted, it's in his best interest to cut a deal.

Jamie Foxx Accused in 2002 Penis Slapping Incident ... He Denies It and Will Fight Back Legally

6/13/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jamie Foxx is being accused of slapping a woman with his penis nearly 16 years ago, and although she's now gone to police ... Foxx says it's an "absurd" lie, and he's going after her, legally ... TMZ has learned.

The alleged assault happened in Las Vegas back in 2002. According to law enforcement, the accuser told cops last week she and a friend were attending a party at Jamie's place when he tried to get her to perform oral sex. She claims when she refused, Jamie struck her in the face with his penis.

The accuser tells us ... after the alleged assault, one of Jamie's friends told her she had to get out of the house. She claims she went to a hospital the next day when she got back home to L.A. to get treatment for a severe panic attack.

Law enforcement sources tell us Vegas PD lists the case as an open investigation. However, the statute of limitations has long since run -- it's 3 years in Nevada.

Jamie's attorney, Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer, tells TMZ ... "Jamie emphatically denies that this incident ever occurred, and he will be filing a report with the Las Vegas Police Department against the woman for filing a false police report against him. The first time [Jamie] became aware of this woman's absurd claims about an incident that supposedly occurred 16 years ago was when TMZ contacted his representatives [Tuesday] about this story."

Hart adds, "The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last 16 years until last Friday because the incident never happened." 

The accuser says the #MeToo movement inspired her to finally file the police report. She also claims she wanted the alleged incident recorded in case other accusers come forward.

John Schneider That Was Easy!!! 3 Days in Jail Over in Hours

6/12/2018 4:40 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

John Schneider's time in jail was about as long as a 'Lord of the Rings' movie ... thanks to overcrowding -- but he's got a lot to do to avoid going back. 

We broke the story ... the 'Dukes of Hazzard' star was sentenced to 3 days in County lockup for failure to pay up more than $150k in back spousal support to his estranged wife. He checked in Tuesday morning and even posted a video as he drove there, encouraging fans to buy some of his gear.

According to law enforcement ... he checked in at 10:29 AM, and was out at 3:46 PM. Sounds like celebrity justice, but fact is, most non-violent offenders in L.A. County jail get severely shortened sentences due to jail overcrowding.

He's not in the clear yet, though. As we reported, Schneider still has to do 240 hours of community service, and complete a long list of financial obligations, or he'll get an additional 5-day sentence.

Or roughly 7-8 hours ... based on Tuesday's brief stay.

Paul Marciano Resigns from Guess Board ... Company Pays $500k to Accusers

6/12/2018 3:11 PM PDT

4:15 PM PT -- Lisa Bloom says she represented 4 of the 5 accusers, who each claim they were sexually assaulted by Marciano by him groping or forcing them to perform sex acts. She says each of the women are opting to remain anonymous, and accepted the settlement because it is "preferable to litigation." 

She added the women have retained their rights to tell their story one day.Paul Marciano is stepping down as executive chairman at Guess after his company forked over $500,000 to 5 people who accused him of sexual harassment.

According to documents filed by Guess, Marciano resigned on Monday ... although the company will keep him on as Chief Creative Officer until January in order to make a smooth transition to a successor. He will receive his full pay until then, according to the docs.

Guess says it reached settlements with Marciano's 5 accusers. During a review of the allegations, Guess claims it interviewed more than 40 people and combed through more than a million pages of documents and emails.

The company's Special Committee found Marciano used "poor judgment" in the way he dealt with models and photographers. They also said he put himself in situations where it was "plausible" he'd be accused of misconduct.

As we reported, Kate Upton very publicly accused Marciano of sexual misconduct during her photo shoots and business meetings. It's unclear if she is among the accusers who settled.

Country star Martina McBride used interns to do her dirty work ... so claims a former employee who says he was fired for reporting her to authorities.

Richard Hanson is suing Martina and her husband, John, claiming the McBrides hired unpaid interns and assigned them menial tasks like cleaning bathrooms, setting up and tearing down equipment, and delivering food.

Hanson says he headed up the internship program until 2017, and continually told the McBrides the interns needed to be paid at least minimum wage. He claims his pleas fell on deaf ears. He says he filed a claim with the Department of Labor and says John fired him in retaliation.

Hanson's now suing for $1 million and other damages. We've reached out to Martina and John ... so far, no word back.
