Blac Chyna Safe Cracked in Home Burglary ... Rob Calls Cops

5/2/2016 8:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0502-rob-kardashian-blac-chyna-TMZ-02Blac Chyna is a couple hundred thousand dollars light after someone got into her safe, and signs point to the culprit being someone close to her and Rob Kardashian.

Law enforcement sources tell us the burglar jacked more than $200k in cash and jewelry from the safe in BC's Tarzana home. We're told Rob, who also stays at the house, discovered the crime and called cops over the weekend. 

Our sources say there were no obvious signs of entry, and the safe wasn't busted open -- leading cops to believe someone in Chyna and Rob's inner circle could be responsible.

As we previously reported ... a Blac Chyna and Tyga sex tape is being shopped around town. It's possible the thieves were looking for a hard copy.

Weeks later, McLaughlin turned himself in to cops, got booked but was immediately released on a $10,000 bond. We reached out to McLaughlin and Nat Geo ... no reply at all. 

War Machine Calls On ACLU For Help ... Let Me Break Bread!

4/23/2016 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


War Machine's freedom of religion is under attack while he sits behind bars in Nevada ... so he claims, and the ex-MMA fighter is calling on the ACLU for help.

War -- who faces life in prison on charges of attempted murder after allegedly beating ex-GF Christy Mack -- claims Nevada's High Desert State Prison won't let him properly observe Passover.

War is on the prison's list of inmates who identify as Jewish. We're told he'll have access to a rabbi and special meals.

What he WON'T get is the right to attend Passover services because his prison status restricts his movement.

No word on whether the ACLU will champion his cause.

Officials say the 19-year-old hooked up with an ex-LSU football player and went on a late-night crime spree near the USC campus ... committing 7 violent robberies in 5 hours. In one case, officials say the men held a knife to a woman's throat.  

Dixon and the other man were both charged with multiple counts of robbery -- along with carjacking and assault with a deadly weapon.

Now, we've learned ... Dixon struck a plea deal ... in which he pled no contest to 1 count of carjacking, 2 counts of 2nd degree robbery and admitted using a knife during the rampage.

Officials say he was sentenced to 6 years in state prison -- and will begin his sentence immediately. 

As for the LSU player -- he's set to face a judge next month.

4/20/2016 8:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kelli Berglund -- former star of Disney XD's "Lab Rats" -- got arrested at Coachella before the party even started.

Indio PD tells us 20-year-old Berglund was caught last Thursday night with a fake ID. Sources close to the actress tell us she was trying to get into a restricted area to meet up with friends when security spotted the fake and alerted the cops.

Tons of celebs and partygoers -- including Berglund -- showed up early to the Palm Springs area music festival, which didn't kick off until Friday.

We're told Kelli was issued a citation and released back into the wild to party her face off ... which she did. The little arrest thingy didn't stop her from hitting the Paper Magazine party the next night.


Jared Fogle Prosecutors Say Shocking Sex Texts Justify Sentence

4/18/2016 2:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0418-jared-fogle-GETTY-01Jared Fogle got what he deserved ... more than the maximum recommended sentence for child molestation ... this according to prosecutors who just submitted Fogle's text messages showing shocking depravity.

Fogle is asking an appeals court to throw out his 15.6 year sentence, claiming the judge should not have sentenced him to more than the max recommended in the plea deal -- 12 1/2 years.

The U.S. Attorney just filed legal docs saying Fogle's conduct warrants the harsher sentence, pointing to text messages he sent to a woman who apparently procured minors for his sexual pleasure.

In one text, Fogle writes, "Is your Asian friend available?" She responds, "Are you going to pay me, too, or can I come back?" He replies, "I'll pay you big for a 14 or 15-year-old."

Fogle and the woman then haggle over price -- he's willing to pay $400 if the child is 16 or younger. He then says, "Do you have any access to any young girls? Like 15 or 16?" She asks, "Why, baby?" He says, "Cause it's what I crave."  


Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Bizarre Video Apology Gets 'Em Off the Hook in Dog Case

4/18/2016 6:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard ended Australia's "war on terrier" by striking a plea deal that required them to record an awesomely awkward video apology.

Depp's wife pled guilty to falsifying immigration docs when they brought their 2 dogs into Aussie land last year. She failed to declare them which violated the country's strict quarantine laws.

Johnny and Amber appeared in a Sydney court Monday morning to enter her plea and submit a videotaped apology. Prosecutors dropped other charges, including illegal importation -- she could've gotten 10 years in prison for that one.

The best part of the deal though is their apology. We won't say it looks like a hostage situation, but ... it looks like a hostage situation.



Katt Williams Stay Out or Else! Banned for Fighting Kid

4/17/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

041516-katt-williams-tmzPretty soon Katt Williams won't be able to leave his own bedroom without getting arrested -- we've learned he could be locked up if he sets foot on a bunch of properties in Georgia. 

A rep for the Gainesville Housing Authority tells TMZ ... Katt's been banned from all 14 of their housing complexes around town because of that brawl he had with a teenager. That went down at the Melrose Apartments -- a property managed by G.H.A.

Law enforcement sources confirm Katt will be arrested if he returns to any of the properties.

We'd say stay home, Katt ... but he's been busted there too.

Master P Tyrann Mathieu Is WRONG Rap Not To Blame For N.O. Violence

4/15/2016 8:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Louisiana rap legend Master P says Tyrann Mathieu is totally wrong about their home city ... saying rap music is not causing the violence in New Orleans ... the people are.

P was out in L.A. when we asked about comments Mathieu made in the wake of the Will Smith shooting in which he blamed a culture of violence -- including rap music -- for contributing to the city's murder rate.

Check out the clip ... P -- a man who helped pioneer the N.O. rap sound -- says you can't blame art for violence, then makes an offer to help Tyrann make some of the positive hip-hop he thinks can help N.O.

Let's see this happen.

Zac Brown Starstruck Cops Lied to Protect Country Star

4/15/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

041416-zac-brown-tmz-03Palm Beach police repeatedly lied and covered for Zac Brown, who was caught up in a drug bust ... and they were so starstruck some of them even asked for the country singer's autograph.

As we reported, Zac was in a Four Seasons hotel room a week ago at around 2:30 AM when cops raided the place and arrested 4 people for marijuana and coke possession, including 2 strippers. After learning Zac was in the room but not arrested, we made multiple contacts with the Palm Beach PD brass, all of whom strongly and repeatedly told us they had no evidence Zac was in the room. 

We've learned not only was Zac in the room, but the cops who made the bust were big, big fans. Our sources say several cops on scene asked for his autograph, and the officers who took one of the strippers to the station mocked her for not knowing Zac was a big country star. 

We're also told once that stripper arrived at the station, several other officers joked with her about Zac and the fact she didn't know he was a famous singer. 

Our sources say Zac asked the cops to keep him out of the police report because he had a wife and kids. It seems the police did everything in their power to facilitate that. In our numerous contacts with the PD, we repeatedly asked for any information tying Zac to the bust.   

Although we now know a document did exist tying Zac to the room, we got this email response from a police official.

041416-zac-brown-email-02The information the official sent us made no reference to Zac Brown. The document showing his name was NOT included.

Various officials at the police dept. told us the same thing in well over a dozen calls ... they had no evidence Zac Brown was at the hotel room.
