'Orphan' Star Help, Famously Creepy Kid Stuck in Elevator!

Exclusive Details

42016-isabelle-fuhrmanFirefighters ran into kind of a nightmare while rescuing a teenager from an elevator ... since she's the same girl who scared the crap out of people in the horror movie, "Orphan." 

Isabelle Fuhrman was trapped Monday evening in an apartment building elevator ... and L.A. City Fire Department rushed to the rescue. When they got the doors open they came face-to-face with the actress who played creepy little Esther ... and her dog, Jennings.

Of course, she wasn't in costume and she's 19 now ... so none of the firefighters had to change their shorts. After the rescue, Isabelle tweeted, "When the fire department has to save you from your elevator ... thank you #LAFD." 

Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Bizarre Video Apology Gets 'Em Off the Hook in Dog Case

4/18/2016 6:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard ended Australia's "war on terrier" by striking a plea deal that required them to record an awesomely awkward video apology.

Depp's wife pled guilty to falsifying immigration docs when they brought their 2 dogs into Aussie land last year. She failed to declare them which violated the country's strict quarantine laws.

Johnny and Amber appeared in a Sydney court Monday morning to enter her plea and submit a videotaped apology. Prosecutors dropped other charges, including illegal importation -- she could've gotten 10 years in prison for that one.

The best part of the deal though is their apology. We won't say it looks like a hostage situation, but ... it looks like a hostage situation.



Cesar Millan Officially Cleared in Dog-Pig Attack

4/11/2016 9:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Cesar Millan's off the hook ... Animal Care and Control has wrapped its investigation and he will not be charged with animal cruelty for one of his trainee dogs attacking a pig. 

The 'Dog Whisperer' reacted to the news, saying ... "Just like LA County Animal Control, my team and I are 100% dedicated to the proper care of all animals, including the farm pig in this case."

Sources told TMZ weeks ago, the D.A. would not charge Cesar. As we reported, he'd been under fire for the video that showed the dog bite a pig's ear during a training session.

The D.A.'s Office says it was "nothing more than an accident," the injury to the pig was minimal, and it was treated by a vet immediately. Bottom line: the whole matter was handled appropriately.

Cesar maintains his training procedures are "safe and humane."

'Gigolos' Star Brace I'm Definitely Not Hooked on Monkeys

4/8/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0805_Brace-and-the-monkey_tmz_wm_MAINA very famous gigolo just learned a very important lesson ... monkeys are way harder to control than chicks.

Brace, one of the stars of "Gigolos," was in the market for a pet after his beloved dog Zeus passed. Fate connected him with Mikey the monkey ... it was an instant disaster.

Mikey went on a tear, breaking drinking glasses, running his tiny motorized car into a family heirloom vase and violently yanking Brace's sister's hair. 

3 strikes and the monkey was out. It could have been a financial disaster. He paid just shy of $5k, but the seller had given Brace a 1 week trial period and it took way less time for him to demand a refund.

If you're still curious, Mikey makes an appearance on an upcoming show. But you know, curiosity killed the cat ... which is good because if it didn't Mikey would have done it.

0403-hailey-baldwin-new-puppy-TMZ-01Hailey Baldwin's squad just grew by one ... and much like Justin Bieber, her new addition is likely to pee just about anywhere. 

Witnesses tell us Hailey and her dad, Stephen Baldwin, dropped by Citipups Chelsea in NYC Sunday morning to scoop up a 2-month-old female Corgi.

We're told Hailey fell in love with her last week when she and bff Kendall Jenner stopped by to play with the puppies. Hailey's only question before spending "a few thousand" was when can the puppy fly? Once she was told the Corgi is already cleared for domestic flights ... the deal was done. 

We hear leading name options right now are Chicken or Bunny.

Hails also purchased food, toys and designer duds we're sure the dog will hate -- but be forced to wear anyway. Like this sweater ...

040116-horse-coachella-gettyCoachella fans opting out of fancy hotels, condos or mansions ... can park their asses and their horses at a huge 3 day camping party.

Vestal Village is an invite-only camping party that coincides with the Coachella festival. VV is going down at a secret location in the desert outside Palm Springs -- but we've uncovered a few clues about the scene that's been planned.

For one, we're told there will be stalls to accommodate horses and horseback rides -- however, BYOH. There will also be an Olympic sized pool and a lake. Eagles of Death Metal are headlining the event, which is sponsored by Vestal Watch, Gevitta and Estrella Damm.

We're told they're expecting about 6,000 people to attend the massive Coachella after parties.

That's a lot of dung.

NFL's Terrence Cody The Mug Shot After Starving Dog to Death

3/25/2016 7:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The ex-NFL player who starved his dog to death is officially behind bars to serve his 9 month sentence ... and TMZ Sports has his mug shot from when he was originally arrested.

We've learned ... 27-year-old Terrence Cody has checked in at the Baltimore County Detention Center ... a place that only has 1 star on Yelp (seriously, we checked). 

The Baltimore County PD has now released Cody's original mug shot -- taken in February 2015 -- when he was initially arrested. 

Cody was a former Ravens defensive tackle -- but was cut in 2015 after he was convicted on various animal cruelty charges, including illegal possession of an alligator. 

As we previously reported, prosecutors say Cody neglected his pet Canary Mastiff for a month -- until the animal finally died from extreme starvation.

Ex-NFL Player Terrence Cody 9 Months In Jail For Starving Dog To Death

Breaking News

0324-terrance-cody-gett-01The ex-Baltimore Ravens player who starved his pet dog to death back in 2014 has been sentenced to 9 months in jail for animal cruelty ... officials confirm. 

27-year-old Terrence Cody -- who was cut from the Ravens in 2015 -- had been convicted of 9 misdemeanors involving the death of Taz, his Canary Mastiff -- and the illegal possession of an alligator. 

Prosecutors say Cody neglected Taz in a horrific way -- with the animal living in its own filth and barely eating for roughly a month. 

Typically, canary Mastiffs are supposed to weigh about 100 pounds ... Taz was less than 50 pounds on the day he died. 

Cody -- who was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2010 draft -- played 5 seasons with the Ravens ... before being cut.

No word on when Cody will begin his sentence.

The answer? Very well according to Bob ... who told our camera guy that Pharoah is putting in work like  a four legged Shawn Kemp ... on his way to single-handedly creating a new generation of racers.

Great work if you can get it.

Cesar Millan Video of Dog Attacking Pig Does Not Show Cruelty

3/21/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The video that landed Cesar Millan in hot water -- showing a dog attack a pig during a training session -- could be the very video that sets him free.

Our sources say the L.A. County Dept. of Animal Care and Control is wrapping up its investigation, and believes the video shows Cesar didn't mean the pig any harm. To the contrary, investigators assigned to the case believe the video shows Cesar jumping into action to save the pig.

A key to the investigation is intent, and investigators believe Cesar did not create a scenario in which he deliberately put the pig in harm's way.   

As for whether Cesar was negligent, it seems investigators think he was, but they feel it's best handled with a conversation urging corrective action rather than filing animal cruelty charges.

The case will be referred to the L.A. County D.A. next week and prosecutors will have the final word, but we're told the conclusions of Animal Control investigators will almost certainly carry the day. 


Rose McGowan Sued I'm Brain Damaged Thanks to Your Dog

3/17/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

031616-rose-mcgowen-dog-instagramRose McGowan's dog crushed a woman's skull and now she lies in a bed severely brain damaged and is gunning for millions of dollars ... so she claims in a new lawsuit.

Elna Ebner claims she and her daughter were taking a walk in the Hollywood Hills last July when Rose's dog walker came along with her large mutt, Mrs. Noodle, and a small pooch. The 85-year-old woman says Noodle jumped up and planted its paws on her, causing her to fall backwards. 

Ebner claims her head hit the cement, cracking her skull. We're told Ebner suffered extreme brain damage and now lies in her bed with 24 hour care.

Rose is a named defendant in the suit because she owns Mrs. Noodle, but we're told Ebner has made a multi-million dollar demand to the actress' insurance company. It has not been resolved.

Rose tells TMZ,"Elna walks through the neighborhood every day. She's a trooper. I was working in NYC when my dog walker stopped to talk to two of my neighbors, an 85 year old mother and her older daughter. My sweet as pie foster dog, Mrs. Noodle, a large but terribly gentle mixed breed, put her paws on the knees of a woman that stands 4'7"."

Rose adds, "The woman was standing on the hill's 65% incline. This terribly sad accident was an unfortunate sequence of events. Do I wish this tiny elderly woman hadn't stopped to talk to my foster dog? Yes. Did it happen? Yes. Am I responsible? No."

Cesar Millan Ear's My Pig ... All Growed Up

3/16/2016 3:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Cesar Millan wants the world to know he held the bacon when it comes to the pig that was attacked at his training facility -- 'cause the animal's all grown up and healed.

Millan posted the most tranquil appearing clip of the swine tooling around his Dog Psychology Center, and seeming happy as a pig in, well ... ya know. Naturally, the clip has closeups of the pig's ear ... and it does look healed.

Cesar thanked fans for supporting him and said, "the pig has lots of new friends."

You can't help but notice how much bigger the pig is compared to the bloody scene on "Cesar 911." It's unclear how much time has passed since that episode was shot.

The L.A. County D.A. hasn't decided if Millan will face animal cruelty charges.
