Ray J's Ex

Our Other Dogs Cry Daily

Please Give Boogati Back

10/11/2014 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1011-ray-j-dog-instagram-01Ray J's ex-girlfriend is pleading for the singer to give their dog Boogati back to her ... because their other pooches are so devastated they can't stop crying.

Princess Love tells us she tried her best to keep Boogati during their really bitter break up -- because she's the better canine caretaker -- but it fell on deaf ears.

As we previously reported ... the doggie argument got so bad Ray J's security had to step in and break it up. Ray J won the battle, but the war is still up for grabs.

Princess says their 3 other Malteses shouldn't have to go through a break up as well ... they are heartsick and visitation won't work because things are so acrimonious.

We're told their dog Coco is taking things hardest ... and cries every night ... waiting for Boogati's return.

Ray J Break UpRay J and girlfriend Princess Love broke up Thursday night and things went nuclear when she tried to leave with their dog Boogotti ... and a huge custody battle for the pup is now underway.

According to our sources, when the "Love & Hip Hop" stars called it quits, Ray offered to leave while she packed her belongings. But we're told when she started to pack up Boogotti's things, Ray J went off. 

Our sources say the two went at it over the three-pound Maltese puppy, to the point where Ray J's security had to step in.

We're told Ray J's security guard eventually got hold of Boogotti and the dog is with Ray J now ... but our sources also say Ray J knows this won't be the the end of the battle.

Princess Love took the fight to Instagram and posted an old photo of her with Floyd Mayweather

Cold blooded.

Miley Cyrus just got dragged into a lawsuit involving her sister, her sister's dog and an L.A. model -- who claims the pooch viciously attacked her and ruined her career.

According to the court docs ... Yolande Ngom was bitten by Brandi Cyrus' dog "Feather" in the apartment building where she and Miley's older sister both live.

Miley's company Smiley Miley, Inc owns Brandi's apartment -- and Yolande says one of Miley's employees was handling the dog and couldn't keep it under control ... allowing the attack to go down.

Ngom says the unprovoked bite ripped open her right thigh ... leaving scars so bad she'll never be able to work as a model again. She's suing Brandi and Miley's company for medical bills, lost wages and more.

Heidi Fleiss

Dirty Birds Terrorizing Ex-Girlfriend

EXCLUSIVE

Heidi Fleiss Birds
Heidi Fleiss
turned her birds loose on her ex-girlfriend's house in a way that would have made Alfred Hitchcock gasp.

Heidi -- who was famously the Hollywood madam of choice for Charlie Sheen and a bunch of other celebs -- hooked up with Judy Bailey-Savage and lived with her at her home in Temecula, CA.  

Judy claims Heidi's pet parrots destroyed the house by ripping wood and drywall from the walls and eating the doors and hinges of kitchen and bathroom cabinets.  They also pooped like CRAZY.

And this is the best part ... Judy claims in legal docs, "I am unable to enter the residence to have a contractor give me an estimate  because I am attacked by birds. I have been bitten on several occasions."

And to add insult to injury ... Judy claims she caught Heidi stealing plants from her medical marijuana garden in the middle of the night.

Judy scored a restraining order keeping Heidi 100 yards at bay for the next 2 years.

Problem is ... the restraining order is NOT for the birds.

Ex 'Dog Whisperer' Employee

I Was Trampled By a Rogue Llama

And It's Cesar's Fault

EXCLUSIVE

Cesar Millan
is under attack from a former employee who claims she was steamrolled by a runaway llama while on the job. 

Adriana Barnes -- who was director of Cesar's dog rehab facility -- says the "Dog Whisperer" worked with many kinds of animals, but untrained employees let them run wild ... according to a lawsuit she recently filed in L.A. County.

Barnes claims the "Dog Whisperer" forced her to work 12-hour days with no lunch or bathroom breaks, and since most of the other employees were inexperienced ... the bulk of the work fell on her shoulders.

In the suit, she claims things got so bad that she was bitten 5-6 times by dogs and on one occasion she "was trampled by a llama."

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Cesar fired her when she confronted him about the work conditions. 

Barnes says in the suit ... the stress of getting canned caused her to overdose on anti-anxiety pills, landing her on life support for 3 days.

We've reached out to Cesar ... no word back yet.

Honey 1, Coyotes 0

Happy day for Suri Cruise ... coyotes did not make a snack of her lost pup, Honey ... because we're told the little Chihuahua has been found -- safe! 

The people at Lucky Puppy Rescue tell us they amped up their search for the pooch after getting reports of 2 sightings this week, and found her on Wednesday ... not far from where she disappeared in Benedict Canyon.

We're told she's been checked out by a vet and is in good shape ... after surviving on her own since Sunday in the coyote-infested canyon.

Cold-hearted cynics might think the saved dog, pictured with the vet ... looks kinda different from the dog in the reward poster.


But we're told the vet confirmed it was Honey by scanning the dog's microchip.

There was a $1,000 reward, but nobody's saying who, if anyone, is getting it.

So ... we gotta ask ...

¿Dónde Está Mi Chihuahua?

Suri Cruise's new Chihuahua, Honey -- which she's only had for a couple of weeks -- has disappeared ... and TMZ has learned there's a $1,000 reward for the pup's return.

Sources close to the situation tell us ... Suri and her mom, Katie Holmes, took Honey to a friend's house in Beverly Hills Sunday ... where the pooch slipped out the front gate. We're told she wasn't wearing a collar because they removed it to take her swimming.

50 reward posters have been plastered around the area. They even issued a pet Amber alert -- to notify houses in the area about the disappearance. We're told Honey also answers to Maple -- her name before she went to live with Suri.

Time is of the essence in the search -- the area where Honey/Maple bolted is heavily wooded and a known coyote hotspot.

Katie and Suri adopted the 1-year-old Chihuahua mix from a Studio City rescue ... shortly before moving into their new digs in Calabasas a couple of weeks ago.

Nicki Minaj

Snake Gets Booted

Hours Before VMAs

Exclusive Details

Nicki Minaj's would be "Anaconda" co-star -- the snake that bit a dancer during Friday's rehearsal -- did not get the chance to strike a second time … and TMZ got the shot of the reptile getting 86'd just hours before the VMAs.

Sources at VMA rehearsals tell us the offending python was at the L.A. Forum today -- just in case Nicki, her team and MTV felt comfortable going forward with the performance as planned.

But we're told the final decision was made to cut the snake a few hours before show time, and handlers loaded the rejected serpent into a container and unceremoniously removed it from the premises.

Sometimes showbiz bites.

By the way, nobody was thinking about the snake once Nicki hit the stage

Anaconda Bites Dancer

During VMA Rehearsal

EXCLUSIVE

0822-nicki-minaj-anaconda-01
A 6-foot long snake -- believed to be an anaconda -- just bit a dancer during a VMA run-through for Sunday's show ... TMZ has learned.

Nicki Minaj was on stage performing her hit, "Anaconda" when a female dancer was bit by the reptile in front of everyone.

We're told the dancer has just been taken to the hospital where she's being treated.

Anacondas are non-venomous snakes but often transmit bacteria that can lead to serious infections.

The snake was removed from the stage in a container.

It's unclear if the show will 86 the snake for the live telecast.
