Paris Hilton's boyfriend lost his composure and aggressively pushed a female fan who got too close to the heiress in Cannes on Friday ... not once, but TWO TIMES, and it was all caught on tape.
The scene was utter mayhem -- Paris and River Viiperi were fighting through crowds of paparazzi to get into a party ... when one overzealous female fan got too close.
River -- clearly pissed off -- got physical with the woman and forcefully shoved her away ... but the lady kept coming back for more.
Paris finally snapped too and yelled at the woman to leave her alone -- but the woman didn't exactly comply.
Paris and River also went off on a security guard who tried to get handsy with Paris.
Don't worry, the couple eventually made it to the party ... and balance was restored to the universe.
The Game was thiiiiiiiis close to jumping into a huge fight in Hollywood this weekend -- even taking off his shirt in preparation for battle -- but something crazy happened ... his entourage held him back!
Game had been partying at Lure Nightclub on Saturday night with some of his friends -- but moments after he talked to TMZ about the Eazy-E hologram, a fight broke out across the street ... and suddenly, it was mayhem in the streets.
It's unclear why or how Game was involved -- but he was definitely PISSED ... and clearly wanted to go beat someone's ass.
That's when his entourage stepped in -- one guy grabbed Game and physically restrained him ... while some other guys readied the rapper's car so they could get out of the situation before something bad happened.
Game eventually left the scene ... right as cops began to arrive.
Props to the entourage -- you guys are earning those Rolexes.
There's still one team interested in former NFL star Chad Johnson ... the team tasked with BRINGING HIM INTO CUSTODY ... 'cause he's officially a wanted man.
TMZ has learned ... a warrant has been issued for Johnson's arrest in Broward County, Florida -- stemming from his domestic violence conviction involving ex-wife Evelyn Lozada last year.
The Broward County District Attorney's Office tells us ... Johnson has failed to report to his probation officer -- a violation of the terms of his probation -- and on May 7, a judge issued the warrant.
Chad also allegedly failed to show proof of enrollment and completion of the "Batterers Intervention Program."
Once Johnson is taken into custody -- a hearing will be set to determine whether Johnson did in fact violate his probation. If he did, it could mean jail time.
Johnson is currently in Pasadena, CA -- according to his Twitter page. We reached out to Chad's lawyer -- so far, no response.
Christian Chavez -- Mexican soap actor turned international pop star -- tried to MURDER his ex-boyfriend with a knife ... this according to court docs filed by the ex-BF and obtained by TMZ.
We broke the story ... Chavez and Ben Stewart-Kruger were both arrested back in April following a domestic dispute at their Bev Hills pad.
After the incident, Ben obtained a temporary restraining order against Chavez -- after filing documents with the court in which he explained:
"[Christian] attacked me, broke down bathroom door, armed with knife, attempted murder."
In the docs, Ben explained, "We dated, I broke up with him, he was required to move out the day before this incident."
"A verbal argument caused this issue. I was locked in the bathroom when police arrived."
Despite Ben's explosive allegations, officials have decided not to prosecute Chavez ... for now at least ... because there wasn't sufficient evidence to back Ben's story.
Still, a judge DID grant Ben's request for a temporary restraining order against Chavez -- requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away.
The two sides are due back in court on May 23.
Puddle of Mudd singer Wes Scantlin was arrested in L.A. last night after cops say he roughed up his ex-wife in front of several witnesses ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... police were called to a business in West Hollywood around 3:30 pm after someone reported Scantlin shook his ex-wife and then tried to drag her by the arm or the shirt.
When cops arrived ... we're told deputies spoke with witnesses and the victim -- and decided to arrest Scantlin for domestic violence.
We're told Scantlin was extremely uncooperative during the arrest -- one source tells us, "He was very mouthy."
Sources tell us Scantlin -- who penned the hits "She Hates Me" and "Blurry" -- is currently in custody and bail has been set at $20,000.
It's been a rough month for Scantlin, who was arrested on May 7 on warrants stemming from his cocaine case.
Kim Kardashian is turning into a real bad ass ... she's telling friends she thinks Kanye West was spot on when he lunged and swore at a paparazzo in Bev Hills.
Kim -- who is always impervious to the gaggle of photogs who chronicle her every move -- thinks Kanye was justified when he bolted out of a restaurant and went all Incredible Hulk on an unsuspecting camera guy.
As you know ... Kanye had a close encounter with a metal sign as he walked to 9021PHO, slamming his forehead UFC style with a souvenir that will probably last for a week.
Kim is telling friends ... the paparazzi have become increasingly aggressive with both of them since she became pregnant. She's especially upset because on Monday a photog chased her down while she was driving and she had to swerve into another lane to avoid him and almost got into a bad accident.
Bottom line ... Kim is encouraging Kanye to take care of business when a photog crosses the line. The problem with her theory -- in the case of the sign, the photogs held their distance and Kanye just didn't look where he was going.
The truth hurts.
Farrah Abraham got into a heated exchange with an airport employee today ... which she claims only ended after airport cops showed up ... and get this, it was all over an over-sized duffel bag.
The "Teen Mom" tells TMZ ... she showed up to LAX hours ago with an extra large carry-on bag -- but was informed by American Airlines personnel she couldn't go through security until she checked the bag.
Farrah says she agreed, but says the woman was rude to her regardless, and the two began arguing. That's when Farrah says she told the lady she was acting like "trash" and asked to speak to her supervisor ... but claims the lady called airport police instead.
Farrah says she explained the situation to cops, but they weren't having it and told her to be more respectful. Cooler heads eventually prevailed and Farrah proceeded to make her flight.
The newly-minted porn star tweeted angrily afterwards, "I thought American Airlines was good apparently they need better customer service, never flying with them again:) #CallThePolice."
For what it's worth ...TSA had no record of the incident. We also called American Airlines, but so far no word back.
But here's how it may have looked:
Kanye was spotted in Beverly Hills early this morning with the giant bruise ... a souvenir from his run-in with a street sign on Friday.
As TMZ previously reported, Kanye walked smack dab into a metal sign post while out with Kim Kardashian. After first showing some restraint with the paps over the incident, he later exploded on one guy ... who claimed he wasn't even there when Kanye hit his head.
So much for a cooler, calmer Kanye ...
West just emerged from a restaurant in L.A. and exploded on a photog -- not a TMZ guy -- screaming at the cameraman to stop taking photos, ASAP.
Minutes before the incident, Kanye had banged his head into a metal sign while trying to hide his face from a pack of paparazzi ... and blamed it on the snappers.
West restrained himself from going after the paps in the moments after the head-slamming, only to emerge from the eatery minutes later ... even angrier than he was before.
The pap told West he had just arrived on the scene -- and meant no harm.
West eventually turned around and went back into the restaurant. It's unclear if Kanye ever laid a hand on the photog.
Inhale, exhale ...
Don't mess with pro skateboarders -- just check out this insane video shot in Illinois this weekend, showing pro boarders Don Nguyen and Justin Figueroa unleashing fists of fury on a bunch of locals ... and someone even pulls out a KNIFE.
The fight went down Saturday at Asylum Skatepark in Lake Bluff -- the owner tells TMZ, Don "The Nuge" Nguyen and Justin "Figgy" Figueroa stopped by for a demo as part of Thrasher's Skate Rock Tour.
According to the owner, Nuge's team ruffled some locals' feathers when they requested the house DJ make room for his music instead ... and a massive brawl broke out.
After several punches were thrown, someone yelled out, "He's got a knife!"
Turns out the knife belonged to a local involved in the brawl -- and he tells TMZ, he took out the blade to help stop the fight ... but quickly put it away when he realized it would only make a bad situation worse.
The irony ... we're told locals involved in the fight are all big Nuge fans ... and still are ... their tempers just got the better of them.
Prophet previously told TMZ his arrest was "definitely racial profiling" ... he was riding in a car in Kentucky on April 20 when the driver was arrested for DUI. Prophet claims things got ugly when police asked him to step out -- and then started beating him for no reason.
Kentucky State Police saw it differently ... claiming they had to tase him multiple times for resisting arrest, and kicking the back window of a cop car.
Prophet pled not guilty to charges of public intoxication, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, menacing, 3rd degree assault and criminal mischief. He's due back in court July 5.
Cops also said they thought the rapper was delusional during the arrest ... proclaiming himself a "prophet" -- but he says he was just screaming his name, "I'm R. Prophet!!!"
Kinda like Reese. But beyond.
