'Purge' Producer Dog Walker's Threatening My Wife & Pup Over Matt & Ben Meeting

8/24/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

One of the guys behind 'The Purge' movies had to purge his dog walker because she allegedly threatened to kill his pup ... all over a creepy obsession with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

Brad Fuller -- who also produced "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" -- says this horror story started in May when the dog walker accosted his wife, demanding to meet Matt and/or Ben. According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, she said "many lives would be lost" unless she got the intro.

Brad fired her and changed his locks, but says the woman started texting his wife 150 times a day ... and threatened to poison their dog. He says they reported her to LAPD, but after a detective went to her home ... she texted his wife, "I will make sure you never walk again."

Brad says the woman was put on an involuntary 72-hour hold at UCLA Medical following the incident. The court granted him a restraining order, which also protects his wife and their Rottweiler, Duke.

Duke easily wins the big head competition!

EXCLUSIVE

Michelle Rodriguez hasn't read or seen the news in 2 months, and she couldn't be more stoked.

We got Michelle Tuesday in Bev Hills and she told us she can't handle all the depressing stories about politics, racism, terrorism, and on and on, so she just tuned it all out.

You might call it burying your head in the sand, but on the other hand ... just look at her body language and her facial features. Michelle looks calm and happy, so, as a famous politician might say ... who's winning now?

Marcos was charged with 4 counts of assault, 1 count of criminal mischief and 1 count of disorderly conduct.

We reached out to Marcos, who would only tell us he got jumped that night in the parking lot but would not elaborate. His attorney tells us Marcos never punched or kicked anyone and was defending himself when he tossed one of the employees.

Exclusive Details

If your Odey senses were tingling at a trampoline park in NJ this weekend ... it's because #13 was there in a full Spider-Man costume -- and the story is pretty great! 

The NY Giants superstar caught wind that his teammate, Jonathan Casillas, was throwing a party for his 6-year-old daughter, Jade, who happens to be a big Odell Beckham fan.

We're told Odell wanted to surprise Jade -- so he got a black Spider-Man costume (with a full mask covering his face) and kicked it with the kids ... who had no idea Spidey was really a huge NFL star.

Odell eventually unmasked himself and the video is awesome. We're told Jade (and her mom) loved the surprise ... they had no idea!

As for the costume ... we debated if it was actually a Venom suit but ultimately decided it was more like the black Spidey suit from "Spider-Man 3."

Venom doesn't typically have webs on the suit.

Yeah, we're dorks. Whatever.

George & Amal Clooney Parents' Night Out in Italy

8/21/2017 7:02 AM PDT

George and Amal Clooney took a break from baby duty Sunday night and decided to go to a restaurant that rivals their fame.

George and Amal hit up Harry's Bar at the Piazza Risorgimento in Lake Como. She looks amazing ... remember, she dropped the twins 2 months ago.

Kinda funny ... Amal got all spiffy in a glowing green dress, but George didn't follow suit, or anything even close.

Can't blame George for dressing down ... guy's gotta be losing sleep these days, or he just doesn't care 'cause he's worth half a billion.

Jerry Lewis Last Stand-Up Shows He Still Had It

EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Lewis still had his sharp wit and comedic edge 7 months before his death ... as seen here in his final on-stage performance ever.

Jerry was performing at the Southwest Florida Event Center in Bonita Springs this past January, and it just so happened to be his final stand-up gig in front of a theater audience ... for which he stayed seated, presumably due to his age.

Right out of the gate, you can see the legendary comedian hadn't missed a step with his timing, as some females from the crowd shouted a classic line of his from "The Ladies Man" ... and he dished a punchline right back.

As we reported ... Lewis died Sunday at his Las Vegas home due to natural causes, according to his family. 

Jerry ended his set with a joke that quite possibly epitomizes his iconic career. This much is clear ... even at 90, the guy loved what he did. David Letterman can attest to that.

Sonny Landham -- who played Billy the self-knifing military badass in "Predator" -- has passed away in a Kentucky hospital at the age of 76 from congestive heart failure. 

Landham was part of Arnold Schwarzenegger's band of special forces soldiers in the 1987 flick -- and starred in the famous scene where he tried to go one-on-one with the alien armed only with a knife. 

He lost ... but he went down in a frickin' blaze of glory. 

Landham also appeared in "48 Hours" -- in which he also played a guy named Billy. 

Before going mainstream, Landham starred in a bunch of low-grade porn flicks -- including "Slippery When Wet" -- but regretted it and said he needed the money at the time.

He later got into politics -- running for several offices in Kentucky, but never got elected. 

RIP.
