Johnny Depp's Ex-Wife He Isn't A Woman Beater

5/28/2016 12:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-johnny-depp-lori-anne-allison-TMZ-REXUSA-01Johnny Depp would never lay a hand on a woman and isn't capable of hurting anyone ... so says Johnny's first wife, Lori Anne Allison.

Lori, who was married to Johnny from 1983 to 1985, tells friends she doesn't believe Amber Heard's claim that Johnny brutalized her multiple times during their short marriage.

Lori's saying Johnny never got physical with her during their relationship ... he never even screamed.

She calls him a "soft person" who is even kind to animals. Lori and Johnny had a dog during their marriage and he was more loving with the pooch than most parents are to their kids. 

Lori and Johnny are still friends and spoke as recently as last week when she called to offer her condolences over his mother's death.

TMZ broke the story ... Amber claims Johnny went on a violent tirade while high and drunk last weekend and smashed an iPhone on her face.

Jennifer Lopez Screw the Valley I Live in Bel-Air Now!!! (PHOTO GALLERY)

EXCLUSIVE

0528-jlo-house-splash-launch-01Jennifer Lopez just sealed the deal on one of the best houses in all of Los Angeles ... TMZ has learned.

Our real estate spies tell us, J Lo closed on an 8-acre Bel-Air estate and got a deal. The prior owner, Sela Ward -- who is repped by Williams & Williams -- was asking $40 mil and we're told Jennifer snagged it for a very reasonable $28 mil.

The property is spectacular ... the main house is 13,000 square feet, and get this ... it has its own lake and a beach!  

The architecture is French stone country villa ... and super romantic.

To get to the front door you walk across a covered bridge, above a creek.

J Lo, who was repped by super realtor Brett Lawyer, is selling her Hidden Hills estate for $12.5 mil. That house is also great ... 17,000 square feet on 3 acres. 

She's got a small house on a way bigger lot. $28 mil buys a lot, right?

Johnny Depp Coke and Booze Fueled Recent Violence ... Amber Claims

5/28/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527_johnny_depp_tmzJohnny Depp may have a credibility problem if Amber Heard's violence claims make their way to court ... because if she's right, his memory of events will be highly questionable, thanks to coke and liquor.

Sources connected to Amber tell us she's outraged Johnny is calling her a liar over the domestic violence allegations ... because he's almost always high.  

Amber claims Johnny was "barely ever sober" during the 15 months they were married. She says he was perpetually high, except when he was shooting a movie, when he hired a chef and a trainer and got sober. Once the movie wrapped, it was back to drugs and alcohol. 

Amber claimed in her legal docs he is "often paranoid and his temper is exceptionally scary for me." She goes on ... "Johnny's paranoia, delusions and aggression increased throughout our relationship. So has my awareness of his continued substance abuse."

She claims on both occasions where she has accused him of domestic violence, he was "inebriated and high." 

Amber got a temporary restraining order Friday ... requiring Johnny to stay 100 yards clear of her. Johnny denies her claim that he inflicted any violence upon her. The order was precautionary, and the judge will conduct a full hearing next month to determine who is telling the truth and who is lying.

0527-rob-kardashian-blac-chyna-tmz-3Good thing Rob Kardashian's lost all that weight, because his knees are about to make contact with his chin.

We found out Rob's flying economy this weekend ... where he can barely look through the curtain and see his fiancee in first.

TMZ got hold of the rider for the couple's appearance Saturday in Vegas ... at the Tropicana's Sky Beach Club. They will get 2 round-trip plane tickets ... one first and one economy. And we know who's not in first.

Their rider also calls for multiple bottles of booze ... bad idea for both.

Mickey Rourke has Johnny Depp's back ... that much is clear.

Sly Stallone I'd Pay to See Floyd vs. Conor ... Here's Why

EXCLUSIVE

Sylvester Stallone says he'd definitely pay good money to see Floyd Mayweather fight Conor McGregor -- though he's pretty sure Floyd would beat that ass!

 "In boxing, you gotta go with the boxer," Sly told us ... but noted "anything is possible" if Conor can land one good clean shot. 

As we previously reported, Floyd's trying like hell to get a deal done ... but we're told it's nowhere near close at this point.

Marc Anthony makes a crummy ship captain -- so says a former employee who claims he lost a finger working on the singer's boat.  

Jean-Pierre Perret says in a new lawsuit he was a member of the crew back in March 2015 on Anthony's yacht "Seas The Day." Perret says he was helping repair the boat's busted anchor when something went terribly wrong ... and a digit on his right hand went overboard. 

Perret says it was Marc's responsibility to make sure the boat was shipshape. He says he was never warned the anchor could be so dangerous. 

Ship happens.

Wee Man Disses Justin Bieber You're No Skateboarder!

5/28/2016 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Get ready for some epic tiny man beef ... 'cause world famous skater Wee Man is taking SHOTS at Justin Bieber's skateboarding skills.

Wee Man is a skate aficionado who's been rollin' with the "Jackass" guys for years ... so, when we saw him cruisin' through LAX with his board, we had to ask what he thought of Bieber's skills. 

"He's like a fruitcake singer ... how can he be a skater??"  

FYI, "fruitcake" has different meanings in different circles -- unclear how Wee Man meant it. 

Still, might not be too late to say sorry ... 

Gucci Mane Silver Linings Prison Playbook

5/28/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527-gucci-mane-TMZ-02Gucci Mane may have lost his freedom by doing time, but he also lost a ton of weight ... and he'll continue with his prison diet to keep his abs tight and the lbs off.

Gucci dumped 50 pounds behind bars by staying clear of carbs. It helped that he couldn't booze it up. He believes a no-carb diet is the key and he will carry that forward during his house arrest. Interesting ... we can't get a clear answer on whether Gucci will hit the bottle again.

The rapper knows exercise is critical, so he'll continue his prison regimen of sit-ups and weights ... just at a 24 Hour Fitness instead of the yard.  

Gucci's so serious about his new physique he turned his nose up to cake and booze for his coming home party ... so says his lawyer, Drew Findling. He stuck to chicken and agua.

Michael Rapaport Baller-ish Pad Sells for $1.8 Mil

5/28/2016 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525-michael-rapaport-tmz-agency-01Actor and die-hard basketball fanatic Michael Rapaport can trade up for a home with a REAL b-ball court now, after making a tidy profit off his L.A. home.

We're told Mike closed last weekend on his 4 bedroom, 3 bath pad in the Hancock Park neighborhood. It sold for $1.789 million. Mike purchased it about a decade ago for $1.324 mil.

The home's pretty cozy inside -- lots of natural wood, plus a huge wraparound balcony off the master suite overlooking the pool and spa. 

One listing for the pad said it came with a basketball court, which is kinda true. It's really just a backboard hanging over a patio, but whatever ... someone bought it.

Johnny Depp, Amber Heard A Dog House Divided

5/27/2016 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527_amber_johnny_boo_pistol_splash-2

We've solved the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard dog mystery.

We now know each owned one dog, which is why the judge only referenced Amber's dog in Friday's court order. 

You'll recall the pooches made headlines a year ago when they smuggled the two Yorkies into Australia. Amber could have gone to prison, but ended up doing a PSA on why smuggling is a bad idea and they got off scot-free.

Turns out it was a blended family. Amber owns Pistol and Johnny owns Boo. When Amber went to court asking for her domestic violence restraining order -- which she got -- she also asked for an order requiring Johnny to stay clear of Pistol. The judge declined, saying Pistol was in no real danger.

We're told Amber is in possession of both dogs because Johnny's out of town, but she'll happily give him Boo when he returns.

EXCLUSIVE

0527-mark-salling-tmzMark Salling has been indicted for possessing child pornography.

A federal grand jury indicted the "Glee" star on 2 counts of child porn. Salling's laptop was seized last year, and allegedly contained thousands of images and videos of child porn. One count involves a flash drive which allegedly contained images involving a prepubescent minor and a minor under 12.

U.S. Attorney Eileen Decker says, "Young victims are harmed every time an image is generated, every time it is distributed and every time it is viewed."

If convicted of receiving child porn, Salling faces a minimum sentence of 5 years and a maximum of 20 years in prison. On the charge of possessing child porn, he could receive 20 years.

Crime Watch Daily first reported the indictment was being prepared.

EXCLUSIVE

Houston Texans linebacker Whitney Mercilus is desperately trying to find his missing dogs, Rocky and Princess ... and says he's concerned they may have been taken. 

Mercilus says his beloved pets -- a German shepherd and a yorkshire terrier-chihuahua mix -- got out of a gated area at his Houston area home Thursday while he was at football practice. 

WM has been asking the public for help ... and says he's already gotten a few leads.

The most promising tip ... witnesses say a white landscaper truck with blue lettering was spotted picking up the dogs in his neighborhood and putting them in the back of the ride. He's doing everything he can to track down the truck. 

Whitney is begging anyone with information to help out -- "I would love for them to be back home safe and sound."

If you know anything, Whitney asks that you please contact his P.R. team at 832-455-0078.
