Johnny Depp Amber's Gonna Ruin My Credit

7/26/2016 5:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-johnny-depp-amber-heard-getty-03Johnny Depp believes he can't get a fair shake in his courtroom showdown with Amber Heard until his lawyers grill her in a deposition -- and if that doesn't happen it could cost him dearly.

Depp's team was in court Tuesday for an emergency hearing to settle critical issues in the case. His side says Johnny has every right to confront Amber over her "meritless" accusations of domestic violence.

In docs, Depp says if he can't depose her he'll be behind the 8 ball in his effort to defend himself, and could lose the case. And there's this -- he's worried a loss could affect him emotionally and financially. He points out a permanent restraining order would appear on future credit checks.

Yes, even with an estimated net worth of $400 mil ... he's worried about credit.

As we reported ... Amber's depo has been delayed because they couldn't settle on a date, but the judge settled the matter. It's now scheduled for August 6 -- a Saturday.

EXCLUSIVE

0726_Jay-Mohr_nikki_cox_gettyJay Mohr was serious about sticking with Nikki Cox ... even though he filed divorce docs, he now wants to drop the whole thing.

Jay filed a request for dismissal Monday in L.A. -- just 6 days after the divorce petition. As we reported ... Jay told us last week he and Nikki are "Very in love. Very happy and that's really all there is."

It was clear they were trying to work things out, and a source close to the couple tells us there was a "full reconciliation" over the weekend.

The dismissal also covers Jay's emergency petition to get full physical custody of their 5-year-old son.

Ex-NFL QB Marcus Vick Insane Police Video Running from Cops, Captured at Gunpoint

7/26/2016 1:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained insane footage of ex-NFL quarterback Marcus Vick -- Michael Vick's brother -- literally running from cops during an incident back in April ... before being captured at gunpoint. 

It all started at a gym in Newport News, Virginia -- when cops were questioning the 32-year-old about a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a civil case. 

Vick spoke with cops for nearly 10 minutes before suddenly deciding to make a run for it -- shoving 2 cops out of the way, breaking tackles -- and SPRINTING down the street. 

Cops gave chase ... but Vick is WAYYYYYYY FASTER (he ran a 4.42 in the 40 at the 2006 NFL Combine). 

It seemed like he was going to get away -- but the cops stayed with him, and Vick eventually tired out ... sat down on the ground and gave himself up.

But when the trailing officer caught up to Vick -- he drew his weapon, pointed it at the seated Vick and ordered him to show his hands and get on his stomach. 

The whole thing is pretty intense ... but Vick is eventually taken into custody without further incident. 

He was later convicted of resisting arrest and sentenced to a year in jail with 11 months suspended. He also got 12 months probation.

By the way, at the end the video you can hear one of the cops say ... "If he ran I knew we weren't gonna catch him."

Lindsay Lohan It's War with Egor Over My Topless Art

7/26/2016 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-lindsay-lohan-pegasus-street-art-naked-02Lindsay Lohan's fiance, Egor Tarabasov, moved out of their apartment Tuesday and she claims he tried to make off with some of her stuff.

As we previously reported ... LiLo skipped town Monday after their blowout, but we're told she had staff at the London pad when Egor and his mother returned for his things.

The staffers told Lindsay, Egor and Elena were trying to take her prized Marilyn Monroe pop art. The custom painting was done by street artist Pegasus and is based on Lindsay's 2012 Playboy shoot.

Lindsay's dad, Michael, fired off a series of scathing texts to Egor over the weekend ... and we're told he sent another today to Egor and his mother, accusing them of jacking the painting.

We've reached out to Egor multiple times, but still no reply.

Rapper Burberry Perry Sued You're 160 Years Late on Your Name ... So STOP Using It!!!

7/26/2016 12:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-burberry-perry-logo-trademark-sued-INSTAGRAM-01Rapper Burberry Perry straight up jacked an iconic name and logo to grow his fan base on the back of a centuries-old brand ... so claims that company in a new lawsuit.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Burberry -- the famous British luxury line -- wants the rapper to ditch the name and logo he intentionally stole to market himself on social media.

The company says Burberry Perry lifted a name that goes all the way back to 1856 in the UK. Plus ... they claim he deliberately stole the brand's globally recognized plaid print and equestrian knight logo Perry uses on his album cover.

What's more ... Perry also made the drastic step to mimic Burberry's font ... and now the company fears customers will think it sponsored or is somehow connected to Perry.

Burberry sent Perry cease and desist letters to get him to stop using the name and logos. He ignored it.

The company's now suing to get the rapper to drop the act.

Stand down, Ice Cube ... your son is fine. 

Amber Heard to Johnny Depp Stop Stonewalling the Divorce

7/26/2016 9:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0726-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-01Johnny Depp's making it damn near impossible to get the divorce settlement rolling because he's put up a bunch of roadblocks in the case ... according to Amber Heard.

In Amber's legal docs, obtained by TMZ, she accuses Johnny of refusing to hand over financial docs needed to settle the divorce case. As we've reported ... Depp's team wants her to sign a non-disclosure agreement before giving up the goods.

But in the docs, Amber says the non-disclosure agreement is ridiculous because it calls for a $100k fine each time his financial info is leaked -- not just by Amber, but even by her forensic accountant. Amber says it's an outrageous demand ... and just a ploy to thwart real progress in this case.

Of course, Johnny's team would say ... the fine won't matter if the agreement isn't violated.

The other issue -- setting a date for Amber's deposition. His side has proposed August 3 and 8, but Amber says she's scheduled to be in London working on "Justice League." She's offered to fly back on a Saturday, but she says Johnny's team isn't willing to work weekends. 

Both sides are due in court Tuesday to hammer out the issues.

Lindsay Lohan Daddy Wants a Piece of Egor ... After Weekend Fight

7/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725-michael-lohan-egor-tarabasov-tmz-getty-03Lindsay Lohan's father fired off a series of angry, threatening text messages to her fiance on the heels of the couple's huge argument that had police rushing to their apartment. 

TMZ obtained the texts Michael Lohan sent Egor Tarabasov late Saturday night -- and it's pretty clear he's already spoken to LiLo about the fight. Michael says, "You threaten my daughter, touch her or if anything happens to her and you will have no where to hide mother ducked like weasel."

The messages are filled with typos -- we're guessing his anger had taken over. Michael continues ... "VOME Here And Face ME like a man and bring your daddy and mommy."

0725_micheal_lohan_text_message_tmz_wm_SUB-2

As we reported -- neighbors called police after hearing Lindsay yelling outside their apartment, accusing Egor of strangling her. 

Michael comes off like a Liam Neeson wannabe in the messages, adding ... "Return her jewelry you broke phoney or I'll take it out of your ass. I WILL find you."

Lindsay flew back to the States on Monday sans Egor. We've reached out to him for his side of the story, but he hasn't responded.

Florida Georgia Line We Love Cops, But We Have Our Own Security

7/26/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0725_florida-georgia-line_getty_2The guys from Florida Georgia Line want to make it clear they have total respect for men and women in blue -- but, respectfully, there's a good reason they didn't need their help backstage.

Sources close to FGL's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard tell us security for all their concerts is handled through promoters at the venues. It's just part of their contracts for each gig.

We're told local cops regularly ask if they can help out backstage, and are usually told it's not necessary. FGL's team believes this frees up law enforcement for other security needs around the venue.

TMZ broke the story ... an Iowa sheriff was fuming after getting turned away backstage. Our FGL sources said that incident and one in Wisconsin are rarities, because most law enforcement welcome the fact the band is self-sufficient.

Bottom line, according to our sources -- Florida Georgia Line is extremely "pro-police." 

NFL's Tre Mason Cops Called, Bizarre Behavior ... 5th Time In 4 Months

7/26/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

07-24-tre-mason-GETTY-01More troubling news about L.A. Rams RB Tre Mason -- who's been at the center of 5 different incidents involving cops in the past 4 months, TMZ Sports has learned ... and his family is extremely concerned.

The latest incident occurred on Saturday -- multiple units responded to Mason's family home in Florida in the middle of the afternoon. We know Mason was NOT arrested -- but there seems to be a bigger problem. 

Mason's family is concerned about his mental health -- citing a string of bizarre behavior and angry outbursts ... and they're worried for his personal safety. 

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Dept. has been called to the home 5 times since March 28th -- and at least once, Mason agreed to check into a facility to resolve the situation. 

From the info we've gathered, Mason has NEVER been accused of hurting anyone. However, on one occasion, a family member told cops she didn't want Tre to leave the house because he hadn't slept in days and she was worried "he will get hurt." 

Before the issues at his home, Mason was arrested in Hollywood, FL on March 5th after he was pulled over for speeding -- and was tased when he refused to get out of the car. 

It's clear, Tre's family is concerned and wants to help him. 

We reached out to Mason's agent for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

0725-taylor-swift-tmzThe fan who tried to bum-rush Taylor Swift during a concert is going away for a long time, but not to prison ... TMZ has learned.

A judge ruled Christian Ewing incompetent to stand trial, and instead ordered him to spend up to 3 years at Patton State Hospital. The San Diego County D.A. says Ewing will remain there until he's ruled competent.

The judge also ordered medication be administered involuntarily, if necessary. 

As we reported, Ewing got into a nasty brawl with security after he rushed the stage at Petco Park last year -- breaking a security guard's rib.

When and if he's ruled competent, Ewing will face 2 felony charges -- assault and battery -- for the fight.

50 Cent Good Luck Getting a Hit from Diddy!

7/25/2016 4:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

50 Cent threw enough shade to keep Diddy cool for a few months when he begged a packed Scottsdale club to rattle off the Bad Boy honcho's last hit track.

Let's just say there were a lotta crickets inside INTL Nightclub over the weekend.  

Someone does eventually offer up Diddy's "You Could Be My Lover" off his most recent "MMM" mixtape -- and Fiddy performed a mocking lip sync.

There's been beef between Fif and Diddy for more than a year now -- most of it one-sided as 50 keeps throwing social media jabs over music, their vodka lines, age, weight and just about everything else.

Diddy rarely responds, but once again ... ball's in his court.
