“Twilight” star Kristen Stewart’s mom says she has a crazy neighbor on her hands ... a neighbor who is allegedly harassing her and claiming that she's harboring wolves.
Jules Stewart says the beef began April 21, when the neighbor walked up her driveway. Stewart says she ordered the 61-year-old woman off her property … and according to legal docs the two exchanged heated, vulgar words.
The neighbor, Sue Bemi, allegedly claimed Stewart's dogs were actually WOLVES. Bemi supposedly screamed her wolves "belong in the mountains of Montana" and should be set free and she was ready to take care of business.
Stewart’s filing says after their blowup, Bemi started a campaign of harassment, regularly making “howling sounds, growls, chirps and other weird noises” ... which riled up the animals.
Bemi claims in her own handwritten legal docs Stewart herself confessed the animals were really wolves.
Stewart, a longtime Hollywood script supervisor who recently directed her first feature film “K-11,” got a restraining order this AM, ordering Bemi to say 100 yards clear of her property for 1 year.
This may be the most disturbing thing you see in the month of May ... a deadly snake bit a TV producer in the foot ... and the damage is bone-chilling -- literally and figuratively.
WARNING: If you have a weak stomach ... DO NOT CLICK HERE.
The zombie foot belongs to Steve Rankin ... a producer on the upcoming Discovery show "Naked and Afraid," which drops 2 nude survivalists in remote locations and films their struggle to stay alive.
Rankin tells TMZ ... "I was scouting locations in Costa Rica ... As I was traversing through some deep jungle I was bitten on the foot by a Fer-de-Lance. It's one of the deadliest snakes in the world and the fangs went right through my boot."
Rankin says his team hustled him for 2 miles on a makeshift stretcher, drove to a helipad and had him airlifted to a San Jose hospital ... where he got antivenom and antibiotics. But things went horribly wrong ...
"About 5 days later the flesh in my foot had started to rot," he said ... surgeons in Costa Rica had to cut away a serious chunk of it ... he was then rushed back to L.A. for skin grafts. He says he's recovering nicely now.
She can't pee in a toilet ... and you probably can't milk her nipples ... but Internet cat sensation Lil Bub is still BFFs with Robert De Niro.
"The World's Cutest Cat" and De Niro hit it off earlier today at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC ... Mr. Jinx be damned.
De Niro's been dying to meet Bub ever since he heard she'd be featured at the festival -- telling the Hollywood Reporter, he REALLY wanted to take a picture with the deformed feline ... and De Niro always gets what he wants.
(FYI, Bub suffers from several genetic mutations including dwarfism, polydactylism, and a deformed lower jaw.)
Now, a word from Jack Byrnes on why cats are better than dogs...
Hugh Jackman brought a little extra protection with him to the gym today ... and we do mean little ... in the form of his adorable French bulldog, Peaches.
Jackman told photogs yesterday he was still a little shaken up from the incident Saturday ... when an unstable fan broke into his gym, screaming and crying, and threw an electric razor filled with her pubic hair at him.
Clearly he's hoping that if she tries it again ... Peaches will wake up in time to stop her.
Sam Ronson is paying for the (alleged) crimes of her bulldog in cold hard cash after she finally settled with the woman who sued her for the death of her pooch ... TMZ has learned.
As we first reported, Sam's bulldog Cadillac allegedly mauled her neighbor's maltese Tiger back in 2010 ... and the pup later died. So Tiger's owner, Farnouche Kamran, sued Sam for $750,000. She also blamed the apartment complex and Sam's landlord in her suit.
Every dog has its day -- and sources tell us the parties reached a settlement outside of court. We're told Kamran isn't walking away with the $750k ... but she did score in the low five figures.
Kamran's lawyer, Ronald Richards, tells TMZ it wasn't about the money, saying, "It was all about vindicating the death of Tiger, my client's beloved companion and nothing more."
TIME magazine is offering a limp excuse for its new Grumpy Cat photo spread -- telling TMZ the fact that it appears to be a flagrant and shameless rip-off of some lesser known feline photos is a total coincidence.
The other spread -- featuring an Internet celeb cat named Lil Bub -- first appeared in Bullett Magazine back in October. The TIME piece ran last week.
And the similarities are glaring -- down to the actual poses and the matching pink backgrounds.
The people at Bullett are understandably pissed, telling us, "Inspiration is one thing, but some of these photos are nearly identical. If it was indeed a copycat, it shouldn't have happened in the first place."
The art director behind the Bullett piece adds, "It's not about the money. It's more the lack of journalistic integrity and general laziness, the mere audacity that they thought no one would notice.”
For TIME's part, the mag's rep would only call the similarities "a complete coincidence."
All that monkeying around has finally caught up with Justin Bieber (literally) after officials in Germany confiscated his monkey because Biebs didn't have the proper paperwork.
Bieber arrived at the Munich airport on Thursday and was confronted about the monkey when he went through customs. Since Bieber didn't have the proper documentation for the monkey (and you know how Germans about having your papers in order) they took the monkey into quarantine.
It appears the monkey was a recent gift from record producer Mally Mall, who tweeted the above photo earlier in the week with a caption, "OG MALLY FIRST PIC WITH HIS POPS @JUSTINBIEBER."
Scott Disick should have his legs sliced open, blood gushing, and then be fed to the gators ... that's what a Reptile Rescue Org wants ... after Scott shot an alligator in the face on a recent episode of "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami."
Mary Hart from International Reptile Rescue -- a world renowned nonprofit that's been rescuing reptiles for decades -- tells TMZ, Scott's hunting trip which aired this weekend on E! was a cruel, insensitive act.
She says, "He didn’t kill that alligator, he murdered that alligator." And she goes on: "Fairness would be to cut both his thighs so he bleeds and then toss him in a gator pond with gators small enough to rip him apart slowly and painfully."
FYI ... in the episode Scott hunted the gator (legally) in Florida ... shot at point-blank range in the head and later skinned and gutted it -- all while cameras rolled.
PETA, Tori Spelling, Shannon Elizabeth, and a slew of celebs have already slammed Scott and E! for the gator-cide ... calling it upsetting, horrible, pathetic and f****d up.
TMZ has just obtained the 911 call that was placed by a breathless man who repeatedly pleaded for help after Ashley Greene's apartment exploded in flames, screaming, "The building's on fire."
As we first reported, Ashley and two men were sleeping in her rental unit when the fire broke out. Officials now say the cause of the fire was an unattended candle that torched the couch and subsequently the entire place.
One of Ashley's dogs perished in the blaze. Her second dog was saved.
