Disney Star

Sues Dad for Unger Games

He Blew My Cash On His GF

3/3/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0302-billy-unger-tmz-01The star of Disney's "Lab Rats" ... Billy Unger got fleeced by his own dad/manager, who used the cash to impress a chick ... according to a lawsuit filed by Billy.

In the docs ... Billy says his popager William Unger mishandled nearly $400K of his earnings last year. He also says his dad was gouging him for a 33.3% commission ... when the industry standard is between 10% and 20%.

Billy says his dad even siphoned away $120K to whisk away his GF on lavish vacations, and bankroll her living expenses. And it gets worse -- in the suit, Billy says his dad "despicably" took out a $1 million life insurance policy on him and made himself the sole beneficiary. 

Billy's asking a judge to order his dad to repay the missing money, plus damages.

For his part ... William Unger claims his son's accusations are "false and frivolous" -- and he blames the lawsuit on a "manipulative negative force in [Billy's] life whose sole focus is to administer pain." He added, "I love Billy with all my heart" ... and he wants to rebuild their relationship.

Christina Aguilera

Disneyland Tantrum ...

Calls Mickey an A**hole

EXCLUSIVE
Christina Aguilera Disneyland Fight
Christina Aguilera is not in the Christmas spirit ... she spent her birthday in "The Happiest Place On Earth" ... in a heated argument with Mickey Mouse ... TMZ has learned.

Our theme park source tells us while ringing in her 34th b-day at Disney California Adventure, Christina and her crew tried to get a pic with Mickey, but he was going on a break ... so Christina was told she had to wait. Cue meltdown!

Aguilera lost it, and called Mickey an "a**hole." We're told she even dropped the dreaded, "Do you know who I am?"

Xtina's crew started hurling threats, we're told ... and Mickey had to be ushered to a safe zone -- out of public view. Security was called, but by the time they arrived ... the former Mouseketeer had already split. 

Aguilera's rep had no comment.

Disney Star Billy Unger

Cops Plea in DUI Case ...

I Was Wet Reckless

12/11/2014 6:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
1211-billy-unger-instagram-01

Billy Unger from the Disney show "Lab Rats" ... plead no contest to a lesser charge in his DUI case -- keeping him out of jail as long as he toes the line. 

As TMZ first reported -- Unger was nailed for speeding in Malibu back in June, but the then 18-yr-old also blew a .08 ... which is the legal limit if you're 21. Under Cali law minors behind the wheel can't have a drop of alcohol in their system.

Prosecutors offered Unger a plea deal -- dropping DUI and speeding charges ... and he plead no contest to wet reckless. It's a lesser charge usually offered to first time DUI offenders like Billy who were at the legal limit.

Unger got a fine, 2 years probation, and has to complete alcohol education programs.

Disney Actress

I Was Teenage Elsa In 'Frozen' ...

And All I Got Was A Lousy $926

11/12/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Teenage Elsa Voice
"Frozen" actress Spencer Lacey Ganus could use a better agent ... because even though she starred as teeange Elsa in the biggest animated film ever ... she got paid pennies. 

The 15-year-old voiced one of the most iconic characters in Disney history ... but only got a one-day guaranteed payment of $926.20 ... this according to her contract which was filed with the court.

Granted she only had a few lines. Another actress played young Elsa, and Idina Menzel was the voice of grown-up Elsa. 

Nonetheless ... the movie grossed more than 1.2 BILLION. So Ganus' slice of the pie is .000077%.   

Let it go Spencer.

Kris Jenner Minnie MouseKris Jenner celebrated her 59th birthday by donning a Minnie Mouse onesie at Disneyland -- but the real question ... doesn't  Kris Jenner get enough attention?

Kris hit up the Happiest Place on Earth Wednesday with her grandkids and Kourtney Kardashian ... and the reality star was wearing an outfit typically worn by pre-teens.

It's safe to say ... everyone in the park knew Kris was there, and it wasn't hard to find her.

She looks good ... but certain parts, well, there ain't nothin' mini.

Justin Bieber can put Bill Clinton to shame ... and if you doubt that check out this video of the Biebs zeroing in on a very hot model he ultimately reels in.

Bieber was cruising Rodeo Drive in a Rolls-Royce when he caught a glimpse of Jacqueline Younis ... who was in the middle of a photo shoot for Festoun clothing.

JB ordered his driver to stop ... and he then summoned the damsel to the Rolls ... and she obliged.

Bieber -- practically drooling -- took a pic with her and it looked like they were about to exchange numbers, but his fame got in the way ... too many photogs, too many fans.

BTW ... check out his pickup line, comparing her to a Disney character. It's super Goofy.

The rap mogul/frequent target for gunfire was spotted at the Happiest Place on Earth with his family over the weekend, where he picked up a red Disneyland shirt, so as to blend in with the common folk.

Suge looked good ... especially for a guy who got shot 6 times just over a month ago. 

Unless Pluto is a Crip, he should be safe.

Disney's 'Frozen'

Sued For $250 MILLION

They Stole My Life Story

EXCLUSIVE
0923-disneys-frozen-disney-01
You might have thought Walt Disney's "Frozen" was about an ice princess and a talking snowman ... but it's actually one woman's true-life story -- or so she's claiming in a new $250 MILLION lawsuit.

Isabella Tanikumi claims the movie is NOT based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, "The Snow Queen" ... but rather her 2010 autobiography -- about growing up in the Andean mountains of Peru.

Tanikumi claims Disney plagiarized and copied the story, characters, and plots from her book ... and turned it into "Frozen" -- the highest grossing animated flick of all time.

We took a quick look at her book ... nope, didn't see a talking snowman.

Our advice to her ... let it go.

Disney star Tiffany Thornton is back with the man she feared so much she fled into the dark of night with her kids ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Thornton and her hubby, Chris Carney, have reconciled  ... moving into Chris' parents' house in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where his mom is the mayor.  

We broke the story ... Chris filed a child stealing report with police back in May ... claiming Thornton had abducted their 2 young sons. Turned out ... Thornton fled to get away from her husband who went on violent drunken binges.  It was so bad Chris' mom helped her escape.

So Chris has pledged to stop drinking and Tiffany is back -- though we're told she made him take a drug and alcohol test first.  

We're also told Tiffany and Chris are getting counseling, so maybe things will work out.
