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.
Wade Robson says he feels LIBERATED after opening up about the alleged sex abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson on national TV ... and says he hopes he inspires other people to "speak their truth."
Robson had just landed at LAX yesterday after his big tell-all interview with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show -- and said he has no regrets about going public with his MJ accusations.
While Wade's story is under fire -- considering he so vehemently DEFENDED Michael during the 2005 molestation trial -- the dance choreographer says he hopes his decision to come forward will be viewed as inspirational.
"If my coming forward and speaking the truth can help, honestly, one [person] to gain courage to speak their truth and begin the healing process then that would really be more than I could ask."
TMZ broke the story ... Wade is going after the Michael Jackson Estate in court, claiming MJ sexually abused him as a child. Wade said he waited so long to take action because he didn't realize he was being abused until recently.
Mariann Gavelo has a huge ass. We're talking Kim Kardashian style HUUUUUUUGEEE ... and it was all out on display at a party in Hollywood last night.
Gavelo -- who appeared on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" (the "Thunder Gun" episode) and in Will Ferrell's "Casa de Mi Padre" -- hit up the Maxim Hot 100 party with her badonk in tow.
Besides her dumper, Gavelo's a pretty petite chick, so we gotta ass -- is there ANY CHANCE that butt is real???
Billy Bob Thornton should get an award for his reaction to his ex-wife Angelina Jolie undergoing a most likely lifesaving double mastectomy.
Billy, who was married to Angelina from 2000 to 2003 ... said she "deserves absolutely the best in every way. She always has, she always will in my book."
Watch the clip, Billy has more kind and totally appropriate words for Angie -- but it's impressive because the camera guy started out by asking ... "Have you talked to Angie since the double vasectomy?"
An honest mistake, but still ... kudos to Billy.
Wade Robson is breaking his silence on the Michael Jackson sex abuse allegations ... and it sounds like he's about to drop a bombshell.
Robson surfaced at JFK this morning -- unsuccessfully trying to stay low-key in a hooded sweatshirt and sunglasses.
But when the paps recognized Robson, they immediately blasted the guy with questions about his accusation -- that MJ molested him when he was a kid.
TMZ broke the story ... Robson claims MJ was a monster who sexually abused him for years ... but he didn't take action sooner because he repressed the memories. The MJ estate says Robson's allegations are completely bogus.
Robson says he'll open up about the situation tomorrow.
Stay tuned ...
We should have known by Lindsay Lohan's SNL performance that she has no sense of humor ... but this really takes the cake -- celebrity roastmaster Jeff Ross says Lindsay REFUSES to participate in this year's Comedy Central Roast.
It would've been a great idea to let comics poke fun at her fresh out of rehab ... because if there's anything we can learn from Alec Baldwin, it's that comedy can defuse almost any kind of negative publicity.
Alas, Jeff Ross says Lindsay turned down his offer ... but there are plenty of other people to choose from. Watch the clip.
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.
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.
2:45 PM PT -- Turns out Kanye did end up going NUTS on a photog a short while after this video was taken. Check it out.
This isn't the start of a joke, Kanye West really did walk into a bar ... a street sign, to be exact ... and he was really, REEAALLLLLY MAD.
Kanye and Kim Kardashian were strolling along in Bev Hills this afternoon when Ye, who was ducking his head to avoid getting his picture taken, slammed dome-first into a metal sign post.
From the sound of it, it hurt ... a lot.
Kanye clenched his head in pain ... and seemed prime for a FULL KANYE-style ragefest on the photogs ... but instead, he composed himself and walked away.
Feel better man.
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 ...
Lindsay Lohan was fiending last night ... not for drugs or alcohol ... for expensive designer clothes -- so she hit up Chanel for a last-minute pre-rehab shopping spree.
Lohan -- accompanied by an entourage -- hit up the Chanel store in NYC last night, where she browsed the high-priced inventory ... before leaving with a bag full of new stuff.
As we previously reported, Lohan was SUPPOSED to enter Seafield Center rehab facility in Westhampton Beach, New York this morning ... but she's refusing and we're told she's en route to a different rehab facility in Newport Beach, CA.
No matter where she ends up ... at least she'll have a fabulous wardrobe.
