A tiny woman somehow got into Justin Bieber's house Wednesday and found her way into a bedroom ... TMZ has learned.
It's a bizarre story. Just after 5 PM, the niece of the guy who is renting his Atlanta Estate to Justin called the cops and said she came home and found "an Asian female" sleeping in one of her bedrooms.
She called the cops and when they arrived they found 5'5", 110 lb Qianying Zhao waiting outside the home and she had quite the story. She said she had met Bieber on Twitter and was visiting him for a birthday party.
Sadly, she said she realized she was too late for the party so she decided to come to his house and wait for him. She said she found an open door and let herself in.
Zhao was arrested for criminal trespass and placed into "double-locked handcuffs" with her hands behind her back.
It's unclear if Justin was home at the time.
9:25 AM PT -- We just got the 911 call. It's pretty hilarious.
Arresting DUI Cop ...
More Evidence of LIES
3/6/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The Miami Beach cop who says he saw Justin Bieber drag racing before his DUI arrest may have been caught in a BIG FAT LIE ... because the GPS results from the cop's car shows normal speed.
TMZ has obtained the GPS readout during the 4 AM hour on January 23. Bieber was stopped at 4:11 AM. The cop claims he saw Bieber drag racing rapper Khalil at speeds between 55 and 60.
Now here's the problem. According to the GPS readout on the cop car ... it was going 11 MPH at the 2600 block of Pine Tree Dr. ... which is where the cop says he first spotted the singer in the Lambo.
The cop accelerated from 11 to 31 MPH in a single block but stayed between 30 and 40 for 3 blocks.
The GPS readout shows the cop car accelerated to 46 and then 49 ... but that's the FASTEST it went.
Now this is significant ... at the 3700 block of Pine Tree ... the cop car had slowed down to 31 MPH. This street is critical because according to the cop it was smack in the middle of the drag race. And get this ... we already broke the story that Bieber's GPS shows he was going 27 MPH on that block.
So the question ... where the hell is the drag race? Remember, the other cop on scene may have lied about smelling alcohol on Bieber's breath ... fact is, the singer registered a .014.
The GPS makes the case against Bieber VERY shaky because it calls the arresting officer's credibility into question. We're told Khalil's lawyer, Bradford Cohen, is going to attack the cop's credibility. Khalil was also busted for DUI.

A Pocks On You
3/6/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ray Liotta says a skin care company is like a pimple on his ass, and he's gonna pop it ... in court.
Liotta has filed a federal lawsuit against a company called Nerium International, which hawks a skin care product called Nerium AD.
The company has been blanketing social media since October, touting Liotta's "before and after" pics and taking credit for the results, saying the Goodfella turned back the clock thanks to their wonder cream.
Liotta is pissed, saying he never used the product and certainly didn't give permission to use his name or likeness.
Liotta is suing the company and one of the investors -- Michael Shouhed who stars in "Shahs of Sunset - for lots of money, and he wants an immediate face lift ... as in, lift my face off your stupid ad.
A Dog-Gone Thief
3/6/2014 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Alanis Morissette claims her housekeeper stole her precious pooch out of revenge and she and her husband are both heartbroken and PISSED.
Alanis' husband, Mario Treadway, filed a lawsuit ... claiming he and Alanis found a stray, 10 lb Chihuahua/Pug mix roaming the streets back in May, 2011. Mario says they did the right thing and took the dog to an animal shelter but no one came to retrieve it.
So Alanis and Mario adopted the pugnacious pooch, which they named Circus.
All was fine until January, when they fired their housekeeper (in rich people's lingo they call it "House Manager"), Maria Garcia.
According to the lawsuit -- filed in L.A. County Superior Court -- Maria wanted Circus as part of her severance, because they claim she had the dog and refused to return it. Maria sent an email to their business manager saying she wanted "ownership" of Circus. Apparently Maria grew attached to the dog because she took care of it while Alanis and her hubby were on the road a lot.
Now Alanis and Mario are out for blood. They're suing Maria, asking for more than $25K and they want the judge to order the return of the dog.
UN-FUN FACT: Under California law dogs are considered property ... so an individual dog is almost never considered so special that a judge would order its return ... the only remedy is money. And that's a sad dog tail.

In Non-Rape Related Lawsuit
3/6/2014 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
If Darren Sharper wasn't locked up on rape charges, he'd be pretty pumped right now -- 'cause he recently won a $178k lawsuit in a war over a crappy remodeling job on his FL condo ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Sharper had sued a Florida construction company, along with an interior designer, that botched a very expensive construction job at the former NFL star's swanky condo.
Sharper's Florida attorney, Michael Simon, tells us ... "There was work that wasn't done properly. There was work that wasn't completed. We went to court to get Darren's money back."
In the end, the judge sided with Sharper -- and ordered the companies to pay up.
Normally, a plaintiff would celebrate such an enormous victory ... but Darren, well ... he's a little preoccupied at the moment.

Going Public with DNA Evidence ... THURSDAY
3/6/2014 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Jackson has a 31-year-old son -- at least that's what the man claims -- and we're told he plans to go public on Thursday with what he believes is ironclad DNA evidence.
His name is Brandon Howard -- the son of singer Miki Howard, whom Joe Jackson represented back in the 1980s.
Sources close to Brandon tell us, Miki and MJ met in 1982 and Brandon was born soon after.
Brandon grew up in Cleveland and now lives in Miami. He's now a singer who goes by the name B Howard. And he's had some success. We're told he's part of a new Akon song.
As for why B Howard is so sure he's MJ's son ... our sources say he somehow acquired DNA from an old orthodontic device worn by Michael ... it's unclear how he got hold of it, but we're told the test results show a match.
The results will be unveiled Thursday on FilmOn.com.
Oh yeah ... once the DNA results are revealed, he plans to go after the MJ Estate for money.
Estate lawyer Howard Weitzman tells TMZ, "We've never even heard from him," adding, "Any deadline for claiming to be Michael's child has long since passed."
Check out the music video B Howard released in 2011 -- in which he blatantly bites MJ's dance moves and vocals.

3/5/2014 6:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Antonio Tarver has just been released from a Florida jail ... and tells TMZ Sports he plans to hit the gym tomorrow to restart his boxing career so he can pay back his $200,000 debt.
Tarver was locked up in FL on a warrant from Nevada -- stemming from allegations he never repaid the Wynn Las Vegas on a $200,000 gambling marker from a 2012 gambling binge.
But Wednesday evening, Tarver says famed boxing manager Al Haymon spotted him the cash to post bail -- and he was released from the Pinellas County Jail. We confirmed Tarver has been released.
When we spoke with Tarver, the 45-year-old insinuated that Haymon ALSO spotted him the cash to repay the entire $200k debt to Wynn.
"It was a debt that I had," Tarver admits ... "a hiccup in the road."
Tarver says he's hard up for cash -- and hasn't "made a dime in two years" -- but vows to repay his debt to Haymon with his fists.
"With Al, it's all about friendship first ... I'm gonna pay him back by becoming the next heavyweight champion."
Antonio -- who fought back in November (and won btw) -- says he plans to hit the boxing gym first thing Thursday morning. Stay tuned ...

"iCarly" star Jennette McCurdy is nothin' but a "ratchet ho" who played NBA star Andre Drummond like a fiddle to boost her own celebrity status ... so says MTV star Charlamagne tha God.
Charlamagne -- who stars on "Guy Code" and "Charlamagne & Friends" -- tells TMZ Sports ... the "ratchet ho" proof is in the fact that she publicly engaged Andre on Twitter after he named her as his "Woman Crush Wednesday."
"She’s clearly a ratchet ho ... social sexual networking hookups are for regular people not celebrities."Charlamagne also says he believes Drummond when the NBA star sad he didn't leak racy pics of Jennette to the internet -- even after she trashed him and humiliated him on a podcast this weekend.
"I bet ten other guys have the same pics Andre has," Charlamagne says ... "She’s an idiot."
For all you non-urban linguists out there -- Urban Dictionary defines "Ratchet Ho" as, "A female lacking class and integrity. Pertaining to women with weak moral foundations that generally are characterized by their general antagonism towards people; slut; degenerate."

It's Mel to the Rescue
In Bankruptcy Case
3/5/2014 2:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Mel Gibson may end up saving the woman who ruined him.
Oksana Grigorieva just filed docs in her bankruptcy case, claiming she can only afford $372 a month to repay her debts -- listed at $438,000 -- but at that rate, it will take her nearly a hundred years to make good.
So, Oksana is asking the court to clear the balance of her debts after 5 years -- when she'll only have repaid $22,320 ... or 5% of her total debt ... most of which she owes to the lawyers she employed in her war against Mel.
The funny part ... Mel is currently paying Oksana $20,000 a month in child support for their daughter Lucia -- so if she gets what she's asking for in the bankruptcy case, she could clear her debt in one fell swoop with a single child support check from her one time sugar daddy.
So the lawyers get screwed, Mel gets screwed and Oksana ... well, that's just what she does.
