'GoT' Star Nikolaj Waldau Suing Ex-Manager Over 'Sham' Deal ... Manager Calls BS

7/28/2017 4:14 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

"Game of Thrones" star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau claims he got duped into signing a deal that sucked money out of his pockets, but his former manager says he's forgetting some facts.

Nikolaj -- who plays Ser Jaime Lannister on 'GoT' -- filed docs Friday saying his former manager, Jill Littman, tricked him into signing a contract in 2011 ... and again in 2014.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Nikolaj says he had a verbal deal with Jill to pay her 10% commission. He says he never wanted a written deal, and only signed one when Jill told him it was required so her agency could sponsor his work visa. Nikolaj's Danish.

But Jill, who's repped by Howard King, insists there was trickery. She says Nikolaj signed the 2014 deal -- then in 2015, when he wanted out ... she says he promised he'd pay her commission for 'GoT' until it ends.

Craziness behind the scenes at the UFC 214 weigh-in Friday morning -- when Jon Jones' NFL brother, Arthur Jones, got into a heated exchange with several members of Daniel Cormier's camp.

We spoke with Arthur who says 6 members of Cormier's team were running their mouths at him during the weigh-in ... so he started jawing back.

Don't worry, it didn't get violent ... but you can tell everyone hates each other.

As we previously reported, Arthur and D.C. traded insults following UFC 210 a few months ago -- they don't like each other either.

Arthur says Jon's sick of talking -- he's ready to fight.

Justin Bieber accidentally ran over a photographer as he left a church service in Beverly Hills ... and the loud impact was captured on camera.

Justin was leaving the Saban Theater, where he'd been worshipping at a City Church event. He climbed into his monster pickup truck as photogs scrambled around the vehicle, and when he gunned it to pull away ... hit the man. It's pretty clear in the video ... Justin's front right side tire hits, or rolls over, the paparazzo.

Justin did not flee the scene and, in fact, stopped as soon as other photogs pointed out what had happened. Bieber stayed right by the man's side for roughly 8 to 10 minutes until paramedics and police arrived.

Justin spoke to police before he was allowed to leave the scene -- police tell TMZ he was not cited -- getting a ride from one friend, while another drove his truck.

Police say the photog suffered non-life threatening injuries to his lower body.

A few hours after he was taken to the hospital ... he posted a video describing the accident, and thanking Justin for being "compassionate."

The couple that sings together, blings together ... if you're Offset and Cardi B.

TMZ has learned the Migos rapper dropped 6 bands on his girl's new chain, which is blanketed in diamonds ... right down to the digits.

We're told Cardi was a huge fan of Offset's recently purchased pieces, including his $100k raindrop pendant, so about a month ago they hit up his guys at Avianne & Co Jewelers in NYC.

Cardi wanted something original so she handled the design and had him replicate her ILY hand gesture. Dip the whole thing in 20 karats of diamonds, plus 15 more karats on the chain and BAM!

Nice icy teamwork.

Chicago Bears linebacker Jerrell Freeman says he nearly BROKE A MAN'S RIBS while giving him the Heimlich in an Austin airport ... but says he quick action saved the dude's life.

Freeman was on his way to the Bears training camp when he saw a guy choking on brisket at an airport restaurant and immediately snapped into action.

"I tried to squeeze the life out of him and bring him back," Freeman tells TMZ Sports.

At one point the man told Jerrell he thought he may have cracked a rib, to which Freeman responded -- "It's either one of your ribs or your life man! Gotta take one, leave the other one!"

In the end, Freeman says he successfully dislodged the food from the man's throat and the guy praised him as a hero and thanked him for saving his life.

Then he went back to eating his brisket.

Seriously!

Blac Chyna I Can Race Nicki In My New Ferrari (In Your Face, Rob!)

7/24/2017 5:01 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Blac Chyna is sending a message to Rob Kardashian -- and even her old side piece, Ferrari -- she doesn't need either of them to get around fast.

Chyna just purchased a 2017 Ferrari 488 Spider. The whip's starting price is around $334k, but Chyna's is custom with Forgiato wheels so it'll cost way more.

Chyna got the new wheels Monday, a few weeks after Rob took back both the Ferrari and Lamborghini he bought her after the revenge porn fiasco, and ultimate breakup.

It's interesting Chyna rushed to pick up the new luxury ride. She just appeared in Yo Gotti's "Rake It Up" video alongside Nicki Minaj, who has a line on the track where she raps: "Brought out the pink Lamborghini just to race with Chyna."

It appears Chyna fell victim to the hype.


NYG WR OVI Arrest Is BS ... Prosecutors Agree

Exclusive Details

NY Giants wide receiver Roger Lewis -- who was famously part of Odell Beckham's Miami yacht party -- claims his OVI arrest last month was unlawful ... and now he's essentially off the hook. 

We broke the story ... Lewis was stopped on June 4 in Reynoldsburg, Ohio when an officer said he was speeding in a car with illegally tinted windows. During the stop, Lewis was arrested for operating a vehicle under the influence of either drugs or alcohol. 

Lewis says he was immediately placed in handcuffs, searched and patted down -- for essentially no reason. After that, he was told to submit to field sobriety tests.

Lewis claims he was told the tests were mandatory. They were not. But he took them anyway and was eventually arrested for OVI.

His attorney, Neil Rosenberg, says the tests were "compelled" and that everything from the arrest was unlawful.

Prosecutors must have felt that Lewis had a point -- because a plea deal was struck in which the OVI charge was dropped in exchange for Lewis pleading guilty to driving in marked lanes and tinted windows.

In total, he paid $175 in fines -- a pretty solid victory for Lewis ... who's now off to Giants training camp.

It's summertime ... so, here's DeAndre Jordan teaming up with his best party pal, Kevin Durant, to celebrate his birthday in Vegas ... with a guest appearance by one of the hottest DJs in the world. 

DeAndre and his brothers hit up the Encore Beach Club at the Wynn in Vegas to celebrate the Clippers star's 29th birthday.

The NBA superstars kicked it with Diplo at the DJ booth -- they also had 3 cabanas for their party crew.

Sources at the party tell us the guys sipped on everything from Don Julio 1942 to Ciroc and even some Moet Nectar Champagne.

From what we're told, everyone had a blast -- despite the blistering 108 DEGREE temperature day!

By the way, KD and DJ are pretty tight off the court -- last summer, they traveled to Greece together after the Olympic gold medal victory to celebrate with a bunch of hot chicks in bikinis.

'Trading Spaces' Host Paige Davis Yeah, I'm Hosting Again But It Wasn't Easy

Incredible to think "Trading Spaces" would come back with anyone other than Paige Davis helming its reboot.

The home improvement show, where neighbors have 2 days and a $1,000 budget to make over a room in each other's home, just announced it's returning with Davis as host. But Davis says she wasn't a shoo-in for the gig, despite the show's dedicated fan base, including Tina Fey who once stalked out their set.

We didn't believe it either, and sounds like Paige didn't when Fey rolled up.

O.J. Simpson Gets Prison Protection ... Possibly In Danger

7/21/2017 10:14 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

O.J. Simpson has been moved to a special housing area in Lovelock Correctional Center to protect him from inmates possibly looking to harm him in order to make a name for themselves, TMZ Sports has learned. 

After Simpson was granted parole during Thursday's hearing, Simpson was moved out of the general population and into confined housing, a rep for the prison tells us.

We're told there's no specific threat on O.J.'s life but several inmates in the prison have life sentences "and nothing to lose" and may be "opportunists" looking to hurt or kill Simpson before he leaves to raise their own profile.

The prison rep said O.J. did not request the special protection but explained, "It's in the best interest of O.J. and the prison to make sure that he's safe and comes out in one piece."

We also asked if the special protection would impede Simpson from being the commissioner of the prison softball league. We were told, "It would be pretty hard unless he watched from a window."

O.J. is expected to be released on October 1. 

O.J. Simpson Old Crib Hits Market for $1.3M!! O.J., Want Your House Back?

O.J. Simpson's former crib in Miami is waiting for him if he wants it should he walk free in October ... for the right price, of course.

Oscar Ramirez from FB Agents Corp is the listing agent and tells us if the NFL Hall of Famer wants to buy it back, he'd consider an offer. Simpson said during his parole hearing that he'd like to move back to the Sunshine State when he's released from prison.

The 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom pad sold in foreclosure for $513k in 2014 while O.J. was in prison. In a sign of the times ... the house is back on the market and its value increased exponentially -- it's for sale at $1,299,900.

The Juice -- who bought the crib in 2000 -- enjoyed some fine luxury when he lived there. The 1.65 acre lot has a basketball court and separate guest house. It's since been renovated with a new kitchen and remodeled pool and porch.

Beats a cellblock.

Beyonce 'Whitewashed' Wax Figure Just Overlit Says Madame Tussauds

Beyonce's controversial new wax figure -- which looks a lot like "White Chicks" Bey -- has the perfect complexion ... when the lights are down low.

That's Madame Tussauds' explanation for the freshly unveiled statue of Beyonce in their NYC museum. It's come under fire because ... well, there are a lot of reasons:

- Fans think she looks more like Lindsay Lohan,
- Or Mariah Carey
- Or Kate Hudson
- Or Maya Rudolph
- Whoever she looks like, she's white as hell 

Madame Tussauds tells TMZ ... "Our talented team of sculptors takes every effort to ensure we accurately colour match all of our wax figures to the celebrity being depicted. Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the colour of our wax figures."

That's their story. No word if Beyonce's buying it.

Megan Fox might though ... 'cause that's definitely more Megan than Bey. Right?
