'Star Wars' Screenwriter Sues Tinder Date Over Disastrous Breakup

4/5/2017 4:24 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

A big-time screenwriter is suing a woman he met on Tinder, claiming she was using an episode of "Entourage" as a template to ruin his life.

Derek Connolly, whose credits include the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode IX," as well as "Jurassic World" and "Kong: Skull Island," met a woman named Ada Hui last May on the dating app. They dated until late last month, and the breakup was super bad.

He says she exploded in a fit of rage, posting their text messages on Instagram and threatening to damage his career. Connolly says Hui even insinuated he was in harm's way.

Then it got really ugly. Connolly says she told him to drop off her stuff by a certain time, or else it would be "Entourage S7 E7," a reference to Season 7 Episode 7 titled "Tequila and Coke," in which Ari Gold was blackmailed.

He says she threatened to "gut" his identity and self-worth. He says she cautioned, "You won't see it coming" before it hits him "like a ton of bricks."

Connolly is suing for stalking and invasion of privacy. He also wants the judge to order her to stop.

Jerry Ferrara My Ex-Pals at Fat Sal's Are Big Fat Jerks!!

12/5/2016 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Ferrara's pissed at his former friends and sandwich biz partners for suing him, and he's fired back with a million-dollar countersuit for screwing him over ... according to the docs.

The "Entourage" star says he co-founded Fat Sal's with 2 of his friends and was the "driving force" behind its success. Ferrara claims he not only provided $74,500 for start-up money, but also used his celeb status to heavily promote the sandwich shop, and boost revenue.

Turtle says his old buds started squeezing him out when they opened several more locations. In the docs, he says they went to great lengths to hide profits from him. Jerry says they even deleted the "Our Story" section from their website where he was credited as co-founder.

Fat Sal's sued to officially 86 Jerry in August, but in his suit Jerry's demanding his equity share and at least a million dollars in damages before he goes anywhere.

Salvatore Capek -- thee Sal -- tells us he's disappointed Jerry is "abusing the legal system by fabricating allegations," and he's looking forward to exposing his lies during trial.

Jeremy Piven is a full service star ... he stars in movies, and then screens them with his fans and buys them all popcorn. 

Jeremy was at The Grove Wednesday night, grabbing some dinner before catching a showing of  "Entourage."  We suggested free popcorn would be a good idea and he wholeheartedly agreed.

Thing is ... Jeremy made good on his promise, which blew moviegoers away. 

He's leaving for England to shoot Season 4 of his hit TV show, "Mr. Selfridge," so from now on, you'll have to buy your own.

EXCLUSIVE

"Entourage" and TMZ have partnered on the release of the movie, and we had an idea ... let's get a celebrity to do an Ari Gold rant.

We asked a bunch of celebs to try their mouth at Jeremy Piven's famous, brash character, and Tyrese came through in a big way.

He sent us his version ... which is shot like a movie.  The scene ... Tyrese is in the middle of a meeting, discussing his album #BlackRose which is coming out July 10th, when an intern shows up with grub.

Pity the poor guy who delivered the wrong fast food.  Short story ... you don't give a Presbyterian a burger.

EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Connolly says the "Entourage" cameo wish list was fulfilled with the exception of one BIG star.

Kevin was leaving The Nice Guy nightclub in WeHo Saturday, when we asked about the most elusive big star.

Producers pretty much got what they wanted ... special appearances by Pharrell, Tom Brady, Liam Neeson, Calvin Harris, Jessica Alba, Ronda Rousey, Billy Bob Thorton and Haley Joel Osment.

But one guy said no.  Hint ... he's big in physical stature, but way bigger in global stature. 

'Entourage' Creator Rescued From Middle of Nowhere By Big-Time Producer

Exclusive Details

Where the hell's Turtle when ya need him? "Entourage" creator Doug Ellin got stranded in the desert and had to use social media to find a knight in shining armor ... in the form of "Rambo" movie producer.

Ellin's Mercedes suffered a flat tire in the middle of the desert Sunday afternoon between Palm Springs and Los Angeles. With no spare tire, and AAA only willing to tow him seven miles, Ellin was SOL. 

So he posted a photo of the bum wheel on Instagram and in a twist of fate, Randall Emmett -- who has produced movies like "Lone Survivor," "2 Guns," and the last "Rambo" flick -- happened to see the post and happened to also be driving back from Palm Springs ... so he decided to scoop up Ellin and his fiancée in his sick Rolls-Royce.

Emmett tells TMZ, "We were all in shock that the timing worked out and we were mostly blown away by the power of social media. We couldn’t believe it."   

FYI -- Ellin's car is still in the desert, waiting to be towed. We smell a road trip for Turtle.

'Entourage' Actress BF Gets Restraining Order She Threatened To Hurt Us Both

6/26/2014 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Entourage" actress Alexis Dziena had screaming fits and threatened to hurt her boyfriend if he broke up with her ... so claims the fearful BF who just got a restraining order against her.

Jeffrey Francis Ausley says he and Dziena had been dating for a few months, but when he tried to end it, she went crazy ... screaming, throwing tantrums and threatening to harm Ausley and herself.

In court docs, Ausley says the final straw came when Dziena showed up at his house last week with a bag of clothes and announced she was moving in ... and if he didn't go along with it, she'd have him arrested "because she knew how."

Dziena -- who played E's psycho ex-GF on "Entourage" -- has now been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Ausley.

She's been down a similar path before ... in 2011 she tried to get restraining orders against her parents -- fearing her dad would murder her for her money -- but a judge turned her down.

We reached out to Dziena ... so far no word back.

Russell Wilson BAD PASS TO BLAME For Actor's Broken Leg

5/16/2014 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE


File Under: "WR Blames QB" -- because Kevin Connolly says it's Russell Wilson's fault he broke his leg on the set of "Entourage" ... due to a bad pass!!

Kev was limping around L.A. the other night -- still recovering after the injury he suffered during a game of catch with the Seattle Seahawks QB in between takes. 

And when we asked who's to blame for the break, Kev pointed the finger right at Russell -- "I know he's the Super Bowl champion, but it wasn't a great pass."

Kev says he caught the ball -- because he's a friggin' playmaker -- but says, "It was a bad pass, I'm not gonna lie."

Callin' out your quarterback, huh? How very Terrell Owens of  you.
 

Ronda Rousey Makes 'Turtle' Crap Himself ... on 'Entourage' Set

4/2/2014 7:55 AM PDT



Ronda Rousey is known for kicking ass and taking names, and on the set of the "Entourage" movie ... that name is Turtle.

Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Dillon shot a scene yesterday in Los Angeles where the UFC queen busts open a major can on them and their SUV in a road rage incident.

Seems from the clip the guys were able to talk their way out of it -- so ... sorry, no armbar for Jerry. 

We're guessing he wouldn't be that lucky in real life.

Saigon from 'Entourage' The Movie's Cursed ... But It's a Good Thing

EXCLUSIVE



Rapper Saigon -- Turtle's hip hop phenom from "Entourage" -- isn't unhinged by the recent Poltergeisty accidents on the movie set ... he tells TMZ, a movie curse could actually be a good thing.

As we reported, Kevin Connolly broke his leg on set last week, Kevin Dillon broke his wrist shortly before filming, and a crew member's dog was run over by a car -- but Saigon believes all the weird coincidences will translate into BIG MONEY at the box office.

Watch the video to hear his reasoning -- ghosts aren't all bad.

Kevin Connolly Broken Leg on the Set of 'Entourage'

3/24/2014 5:00 PM PDT
There are some things a hug cannot fix ... like a broken leg.

That's the lesson learned by "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly, who broke his leg on the set of the movie last week while trying to catch a pass from Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson.

According to our sources, Connolly tripped on a sprinkler while trying to make the play, which resulted in Jerry Ferrara falling on his leg.

We're told it was a pretty clean break -- think of how bad it would have been pre-weight loss Turtle -- and that filming was not interrupted at all by the injury.

Way to take one for the team, E.
