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.

Yuma The Pig
Porkly Pig Scores Book Deal
But Must Lose Weight First
7/29/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"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 line, chalked 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.
'Troubled' Dog Attacks
During Walk with Dog Whisperer
7/23/2014 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Check Out My Comeback ...
In a Porn Star Paradise!!
7/22/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Coolio 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.

There's a Target on My Head
Thanks to Facebook
7/10/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
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."
I Got a House Party Tattoo ...
For My Dead Dog
7/6/2014 2:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Miley 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
7/4/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
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."
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."
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'
Story Is BOGUS
6/24/2014 1:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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'
Family Claims It's No Hoax!
6/24/2014 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Giggy Scoffs at Jury Verdict
6/18/2014 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lisa Vanderpump telegraphed her disdain for a bizarre jury verdict against her famous restaurant through her famous dog, Giggy.
Our photog asked Lisa Tuesday night about the sexual harassment trial in which the jury just socked Villa Blanca with a $100,000 punitive damages award. A former waitress sued the restaurant and a manager, claiming the manager did all sorts of awful things to her.
Here's what's crazy ... the jury ruled in favor of the manager but nailed the restaurant.
Giggy scoffs at the verdict and vows an appeal ... and every dog does have its day -- in court.
Sara Evans Ex-Husband
I Only Got 25 Chickens
To My Name
6/17/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sara Evans' ex-husband has become a country music cliche ... fighting with his ex, dodging an arrest warrant, and so deep in debt his main assets are a couple dozen chickens.
Craig L. Schelske filed docs in his bankruptcy case, listing a mountain of debt and a sorry, short list of assets. For starters he owes Evans $333K. Lots of other debts as well.
Now the assets ... 25 chickens (valued at zero) and 2 bags of chicken feed. And then there's 60 DVDs, 3 silver coins and 40 books, all worth a grand total of $100. And of course there's a 12-gauge shotgun, a rifle and a hand gun.
He also lists 4 vacuum cleaners and a card table. As for cars -- he has a Ford F-250, a Chevy pickup, a Chevy Tahoe and a Honda 4-wheeler.
As for the warrant -- it seems Craig stopped paying Sara child-related expenses, so the judge slapped him with a contempt citation and made him a wanted man.
You may remember ... Evans and Schelske went through a brutal and ugly split ... he claimed she exposed their kids to drugs and alcohol on her tours ... she claimed he was banging the nanny and was obsessed with porn.
Chickens and porn ... a way to a man's heart.
