Rapper Kid Ink

Pizza Delivery Man Sues Over Dog Attack

Damages Have Mushroomed

8/18/2014 5:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kid Ink Sued
Kid Ink's dog viciously attacked a pizza delivery guy and now the victim is suing for a piece of the pie.

Garnik Nazarian claims Kid ordered a pie delivered to his Granada Hills home ... and when he showed up at the front door, Kid's dog -- Louie -- attacked him ... chomping down on his hands, arms, legs, face and other body parts.

Nazarian -- claims Kid should've known Louie was "unusually dangerous" and prone to attack ... and should've kept the animal locked up.

According to the lawsuit ... Nazarian's injuries are so bad, he won't be able to deliver pizzas for a long time to come. So, in addition to medical bills and pain and suffering, he wants lost profits.

BTW ... the lawsuit is a little wonky. In California and most states, a dog bite victim doesn't have to prove the pooch was unusually dangerous or prone to attack. When dog bites a person ... owner pays -- period.

Fisher Stevens

Grand Canyon Squirrel Killer Can't Hide

080714_fisher_stevens_launch_v2
The cold-hearted bastard who kicked a squirrel off a Grand Canyon ledge will absolutely be hunted down because he pissed off the wrong people ... according to actor Fisher Stevens

Fisher was outside BOA Steakhouse last night when we told him about the insane story -- 2 French-speaking men recently used bread crumbs to lure the squirrel, and then one of them punted the poor animal into the air. Video of the crime went viral.

Now the suspects have law enforcement on their asses, but Fisher thinks the key to their capture might be PETA's $15,000 bounty.

Fisher's an animal rights advocate himself -- he won the Oscar for "The Cove" -- and thinks the killers won't get away with it while PETA's on the case.

Kelly Osbourne Sued

Her Dog Pooped All Over My Condo

EXCLUSIVE

Kelly Osbourne Landlord Sues
Kelly Osbourne was a barbarian who let her dog crap and pee all over her swanky WeHo condo ... and had the cajones to sue for her security deposit -- according to her ex-landlord who's now suing her right back.

Arshia Refoua claims he rightfully kept Osbourne's $18,700 deposit when she moved out in April 2013 ... because she left the place a dump -- holes in the walls, destroyed hardwood floors and dog poop and piss everywhere.

He also claims she caused extensive damage when she left the bathtub running ... flooding her condo and the ones under her.

We broke the story ... Osbourne fired the first shot by suing Refoua to get back the deposit -- and denied all pigsty allegations.

Now she could lose way more than the $18K -- Refoua's suing her for damages of at least $50,000.

Porkly Pig Scores Book Deal

But Must Lose Weight First

EXCLUSIVE

Yuma The Pig Book Deal

"Young and the Restless" star Kevin Schmidt's famous pet -- Yuma the Pig -- has scored a children's book deal and will go on tour to promote it ... but he needs to drop a lot of sausage first.

Yuma's a micro-pig -- which typically weigh 45 lbs ... but has ballooned to more than 80, meaning Kevin and his hog have some serious work to do before she hits the wheels of squeal in September.

In order to make weight, Yuma will be walked 4 times a day and fed only organic meals by a pro chef ... at a cost of $1,000 a week!

Yuma's easily been worth her weight ... having already hammed it up on "A-List Pets" with Ian Ziering, booked several $15,000-a-pop public appearances, launched her own clothing linechalked up 32,000 Twitter followers, and -- not to be forgotten -- recovered nicely from her near-death experience on TMZ Live.

Now if we can only get her off the couch.

Cesar Millan

'Troubled' Dog Attacks

During Walk with Dog Whisperer

EXCLUSIVE

Cesar Millan
couldn't stop one of his gigantic clients -- a Great Dane -- from attacking a neighbor during a training session yesterday ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the 'Dog Whisperer' star was walking a group of dogs, including the Great Dane, near his home in Studio City, CA -- and none of the dogs were leashed. 

We're told one of Millan's neighbors was out walking his own dog ... and when the neighbor reached out to let the Great Dane sniff his palm ... the dog suddenly bit the man's hand and forearm.

We're told Cesar followed the man to the hospital where he was treated and released. Unclear, at this point, how badly he was injured.

A rep for Millan confirmed the attack, and says Cesar was walking a "troubled dog" as part of its training, when it got "spooked by a neighbor." The rep added, Cesar is still caring for the dog.

We don't know yet how big this dog was -- but adult Great Danes range from 100 to 120 pounds. 

A source close to the victim tells us "he's healing," and is following up with a physician today.

Coolio

Check Out My Comeback ...

In a Porn Star Paradise!!

7/22/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

072114_coolio_launchCoolio is banking on a whole lotta ass making him a player in the music biz again -- he's teamed up with a porn website for his new music video ... and it's filled with wet t-shirts, garden hoses, twerking dinosaurs ... and even Coolio.

Coolio tells TMZ ... Pornhub.com agreed to provide all the "talent" for his video -- "Take it to the Hub" -- and in exchange he's going to debut all his new music on the website.

We're told Coolio and co. banged out the vid in about 5 hours at a house in Sherman Oaks, CA. The video's pretty funny ... for some reason the director had to remind Coolio and the girls, "Smile while you're doing this. Look like you're having a good time."

This is 50-year-old Coolio's first album since 2009.

Best part of the shoot -- featuring Jessica Bangkok, Missy Martinez and Skin Diamond -- the catering was provided by the nearest El Pollo Loco.

Ay, dios mio.

The people at Facebook are heartless hypocrites ... censoring hunter/cheerleader Kendall Jones from posting the carcasses of the animals she's killed, but allowing others to post pics advocating Kendall's murder ... so complains Kendall's father.

0709-kill-kendall-facebook-SUB-01
Cody Jones says he contacted Facebook ... demanding they take down the "Kill Kendall Jones" page. Cody says FB told him to pound sand, because it didn't violate company standards.

The "Kill Kendall" page is a takeoff of Kendall's earlier postings ... where she proudly displayed her kills. The KK page turns the tables ... with the animals standing over a dead hunter.

Facebook tells TMZ, "We remove content and may escalate to law enforcement when we perceive a genuine risk of physical harm, or a direct threat to public safety."

Miley Cyrus

I Got a House Party Tattoo ...

For My Dead Dog

7/6/2014 2:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miley Cyrus Dog TattooMiley Cyrus will never forget her deceased dog ... because it's now emblazoned on her rib cage.

Miley inked the memoriam Saturday at a house party in Los Angeles. For some reason ... her good buddy Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips and another friend tatted the same design in honor of Floyd -- an Alaskan Klee Kai that died when he was only 2.

Floyd's death ... along with a bad reaction to antibiotics and hard partying ... led to Miley's meltdown earlier this year.

It looks like Floyd's mug is the centerpiece of the tat with the words, "with a little help from my fwends."

We'll always remember Floyd ... because we have to now.

Texas Tech Cheerleader

I GOT DEATH THREAT

From 'Real Housewives' Star

EXCLUSIVE

0702_joanna_krup_kendall-jones_tmz_facebook

A 19-year-old Texas Tech cheerleader says she's received DEATH THREATS over her penchant for hunting exotic animals ... and one of the harassers is one of the "Real Housewives of Miami."

The woman in crosshairs is Kendall Jones -- a college sophomore who made national headlines after photos emerged showing some of the animals she's killed on safari including lions, elephants and leopards. 

Kendall's father Cody tells TMZ Sports ... after her story went public, Kendall immediately began receiving death threats on the phone and online ... including an aggressive message from Joanna Krupa

Cody tells us Krupa went on Instagram ... writing,  "This bitch Kendall Jones killed this beautiful creature so she post a selfie! That lion is an endangered species .. breaks my f***ing [heart] not to mention he had a family .. I wish I can fly to Africa and shoot her ugly ass."

0702_joanna_krupa_instagram-comment
Cody says Kendall interpreted the message as a threat -- though she has NOT gone to cops because, "We're in Texas and we feel safe here."

"It’s not that we aren’t taking these threats seriously -- we just feel that these are baseless, and uneducated threats." We're told despite the backlash, Kendall says she will continue to hunt because she feels it's essential for population control and conservation efforts in certain parts of Africa.

She says none of the animals killed are endangered - and all of her hunting is done legally with permits issued by each African country they hunt in.

She says the exotic hunting trip also promotes economic growth in 3rd world countries. 

As for Joanna, she has since taken her Instagram post down. We reached out to her for comment -- so far, nothing back.  

'Pit Bull Girl'

KFC Concludes

Story Is BOGUS

KFC Pit Bull Girl Story

KFC is calling BS on  the "pit bull girl" who was allegedly turned away from one of its franchises because customers were grossed out by her bite wounds.

KFC claims there have now been 2 investigations -- one internal and one independent -- and both show "no evidence" such an incident ever occurred at the Jackson Mississippi franchise.

3-year-old Victoria Welcher's family claims the girl was kicked out because employees felt her facial wounds from the dog attack were upsetting customers.

KFC says it will still honor its $30,000 donation to assist Victoria's family in paying her medical bills. 

So even if the claim was phony ... it worked.

KFC Pit Bull Girl Hoax

The people calling BS on a story about a little girl who was thrown out of a KFC because her face made customers lose their appetite are themselves full of BS ... so claims the aunt of the girl.

3-year-old Victoria Welcher  was supposedly kicked out of a KFC in Jackson, Miss. last month after an employee felt her facial wounds from a pit bull attack were upsetting customers.

New reports claim the story is bogus.

But Victoria's aunt, Teri Rials Bates, now claims it really happened and the franchise is in the midst of a KFC investigation.

The owner of the franchised KFC in Jackson says the story's fishy.
