'Shahs of Sunset' Star GG My Ex is a Menace ... Stay Away from Me and My Cats!!!

12/13/2017 11:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Shahs of Sunset" star Golnesa 'GG' Gharachedaghi believes her estranged husband is out to get her -- literally and figuratively -- and is asking a judge to keep him away ... from her cats too.

GG filed docs alleging Shalom Yeroushalmi has been harassing her and her family for months with calls, emails and texts ... and has repeatedly gone to the press trying to sell stories about her. GG claims as recently as this month, Shalom contacted TMZ and E! News in an attempt to defame her.

According to the docs ... GG has also caught her ex lurking around her house about 5 times, including back in February when he prevented a food delivery guy from delivering her order by posing as security.

GG's asking for an order to keep Shalom 50 yards away from her, Romeo and Malaika (her 2 cats). She also wants Shalom prohibited from contacting press or any social media outlets to offer info on her or her family. A judge denied the request, but set a hearing for her to bring evidence showing a restraining order is necessary.

As we reported ... GG filed for divorce from Shalom after just 2 months of marriage, but he's putting up a legal fight over it.

EXCLUSIVE

Here's an odd pairing -- '80s rock stars, current TV stars and possibly you ... hooking up to protect farm animals. Any takers?

The celebs are auctioning off meet-and-greets to raise funds for a NY based nonprofit called Farm Sanctuary -- and they've got quite a stable of talent. 

Joan Jett, Richard Marx and Mary Chapin Carpenter are on board -- along with Mayim Bialik from 'Big Bang Theory,' Emma Kenney from "Shameless" and "Downton Abbey" star Lesley Nicol.

The music stars are throwing in concert packages, and there's some other cool memorabilia up for auction, too -- like a Moby autographed guitar, and a Jason Mraz guitar string bracelet. Yup, that's a thing. 

We're told everyone involved is seriously down for Farm Sanctuary's cause -- defending livestock from cruelty. Joan's even visited their shelter.

Old MacDonald would be proud!

Exclusive Details

Mariah Carey is still Nick Cannon's dream girl ... at least she is in his latest music video, which features a diva doggie version of his ex.

Nick just dropped his Ncredible Gang vid for "Dream Girl" featuring Jeremih and Ty Money. We're told the song's definitely about Mariah -- Nick even sings "ain't over my ex." 

Gotta love the concept -- Nick got adorable pooches to stand-in for the humans. Mimi, Nick and even their twins, Monroe and Moroccan, have doggie doppelgangers. Nick's is easy to spot -- he's the one in a turban. And watch for the Migos cameos as chihuahuas ... with locks!!

We'll say it ... this is bitchin'.

Breaking News

Roy Moore went full cowboy mode ... mounting a horse to cast his ballot in Alabama's contentious special election.

The Republican U.S. Senate candidate arrived on horseback Tuesday in Gallant, Alabama. Moore wore his trademark cowboy hat while riding Sassy. Apparently, this isn't the first time he's pulled this stunt. Moore also showed up on a horse to vote in the GOP Primary.

Moore's nearing the finish line of an embattled campaign that includes mounting allegations of sexual misconduct with teenagers when he was in his 30s.

Chris Brown Chill Out ... Monkey Is Mine, Not Royalty's!!!

12/12/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown knows better than to give Royalty a pet monkey ... which is why he didn't.

Sources close to CB tell TMZ ... the baby capuchin monkey everyone saw his 3-year-old daughter cradling actually belongs to Chris. We're told he bought the exotic pet about 2 months ago ... and her name's Fiji.

As we reported ... Chris got skewered online for appearing to have bought Royalty the monkey ... with scores of fans saying the monkey posed a danger to Royalty, and belongs in the wild.

We're told Fiji's permanent address will be CB's crib, and that's the only place Royalty will get to see her. The monkey's not allowed to go to her mom, Nia Guzman's house. While that might ease safety concern's for Royalty, Fiji still won't be in the wild.

Our sources say Chris really wanted her because his idol Michael Jackson had Bubbles, the chimp. It was pretty obvious he was heading down this path when Chris flipped over one of Mally Mall's pet primates.

Carrie Fisher's Dog Gary Doesn't Just Heel, He Heals ... Says New Owner

12/12/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Carrie Fisher's French bulldog, Gary, is more than a famous pooch looking to make a buck -- he's downright therapeutic for Carrie's throngs of fans ... and his new owner's seen it happen, firsthand.

We got Carrie's former assistant, Corby McCoinleaving Basix Cafe in West Hollywood ... with Gary, of course. We asked her about the standoff with Disney and Carrie's family -- primarily her daughter Billie Lourd and ex-husband Bryan Lourd.

We broke the story ... Billie and Bryan think Gary's public appearances cheapen Carrie's legacy, and want Corby to keep Gary out of the spotlight. 

Corby says she isn't in it for the money, but adds it's clear to her now ... Gary provides emotional support to fans who are missing Carrie.

Ellen DeGeneres New Carpinteria Home Under Threat of Wildfires

12/10/2017 2:23 PM PST

4:50 PM PT -- Rob Lowe has evacuated his home due to the Thomas Fire. Ellen DeGeneres' new beach side house is now under threat of being scorched by SoCal wildfires ... and it sounds like she's starting to evacuate. 

Ellen tweeted Sunday that she just had to evacuate her pets from her recently purchased beach house in Carpinteria, for which she plunked down $18.6 million in October.

It's unclear if Ellen herself is being ordered to leave, or if she's already left, but it sure seems like the flames near her -- now dubbed the Thomas Fire -- are starting to get too close for comfort. So far, it's reportedly burned at least 200,000 acres in the area.

The fire has also spread to Montecito, which is home to tons of celebs who could potentially end up being affected, such as Oprah, Jeff Bridges, Drew Barrymore, Rob Lowe, and Patrick Stewart ... just to name a few.

Looks like Ellen is already taking precautions. Our advice to everyone else ... get out.

Carrie Fisher Beloved Dog, Gary Caught in Emotional Tug of War

12/10/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Carrie Fisher's French bulldog, Gary, is one of the most popular pooches on the planet, but his public appearances have upset Carrie's family ... TMZ has learned.

As you'll recall ... when Fisher died, Gary went to her assistant, Corby McCoin. There have been numerous stories out that Carrie's daughter, Billie Lourd has the pooch, but it's not true. Corby has had the dog since Carrie died.

Now here's the conflict -- Corby wants to take Gary to various functions, including ComicCons, where people can interact with Gary and somehow feel closer to Carrie. We're told people over at Lucasfilm contacted the folks at ComicCon and asked them to block the appearance, which they did.

There was another event last April in Orlando which held a "Star Wars" celebration. We're told Mark Hamill wanted Gary to come out on stage with him. We're told the P.R. Dept. for "Star Wars" shut it down because Billie didn't want it ... and there have been other failed attempts as well.

Sources connected to Billie tell TMZ ... she and her dad, CAA head Bryan Lourd, fully understand how much Gary meant to Carrie, but when she died Gary was really nothing more than a dog, and they didn't want the animal to define the memory of Carrie ... they felt it cheapened it.

We're also told Bryan asked Corby to delete Gary's Instagram, which has more than 160,000 followers ... again, because he feels it cheapens Carrie's legacy.

We're even told Bryan offered Corby $250 a month in return for not parading Gary around, possibly for money, but Corby declined.

We broke the story ... 'Last Jedi' director Rian Johnson says the upcoming film will pay homage to Fisher's beloved dog, so no matter what -- he's still got some time left in the limelight.

Chris Brown My Baby Girl's Monkeyin' Around!

12/8/2017 8:54 AM PST

Chris Brown could've done a puppy or kitten, but instead he went exotic for Royalty's early Christmas gift, and hooked her up with ... a brand new monkey!!!

Chris' daughter got cozy with her gift, cradling what looks like a baby capuchin monkey. Dad joked with Royalty that her new "baby" would get bigger than her -- which seems like maybe a good reason NOT to give her a monkey.

But for now, it is super cute ... especially when it's this tiny and in diapers.

Royalty seems stoked, but a lot of fans let Chris have it on social media -- pointing out the exotic pet is better off in the wild, instead of his home.

'Last Jedi' Director Rian Johnson Carrie Fisher's Dog Honored in Flick He's Fam!!!

12/8/2017 7:17 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Carrie Fisher's dog was such an adorable companion on the set of 'Last Jedi' it was only a matter of time until the 'Star Wars' flick paid homage to him.

'Last Jedi' director Rian Johnson was at LAX Thursday and he tells our guy exactly why Gary the Dog inspired a character in the highly-anticipated movie. It's easy to see how Gary's likeness charmed his way onto the big screen ... he had us herehere and here.

Rian swears he's told no one about the plot points ... but Ram Bergman confesses he spilled the beans here and there.

Lisa Vanderpump Doggy Fashion Lawsuit Tossed

12/5/2017 9:51 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lisa Vanderpump's lawyers didn't screw the pooch on the lawsuit she was facing over doggy clothing -- it's been dropped for good.

The suit -- filed by dog boutique Fifi & Romeo against Lisa -- has been dismissed with prejudice, meaning they can't refile it. Looks like Lisa might have thrown them a bone, as in a few bucks, because F&R asked the court to toss the case.

We broke the story ... the boutique sued Lisa for allegedly failing to promote their company after they agreed to dress Giggy for events and photo shoots. 

We've reached out to both Lisa and F&R to see if they did in fact reach a settlement. No word back from either side.

Olivia Munn's Dog Gets a Leg Up on Airport Greeter

11/22/2017 2:06 PM PST

4:30 PM PT -- Olivia is leaping to Chance's defense and says he was merely pulling the ole "scratch me on my leg" move."Chance, nooooooo!!!"

... Is what Olivia Munn probably should have shouted as her rescue dog greeted a greeter at LAX by marking his territory and peeing on her left leg.

Munn was flying out of the airport Wednesday for Thanksgiving with Chance and her other dog, Frankie. Clearly, one pooch is more of a bad boy (but they're both good boys).

Olivia didn't seem to notice and the LAX employees didn't seem to mind ... so airport crisis averted.

The actress and her pups strolled away afterward, all smiles.

Khalid Jumps Through Hoops To Adopt New Puppy

11/21/2017 11:14 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Khalid just got himself a new dog -- but the adoption was no walk in the park ... not even close.

Sources close to the adoption tell TMZ Khalid got put through the ringer Saturday -- with a 4-hour long interview and vetting process at L.A.'s Bark n' Bitches. 

We're told BNB had the R&B singer fill out extensive paperwork and provide references to make sure he was up to the task -- considering he's only 19 and constantly touring the country. Lucky for Khalid, we're told his manager offered a glowing reference on the spot, and he was approved.

In the end, he walked out with a 9-week-old pit bull mix named Roxy. We're told his total cost was several hundred bucks ... including treats, tags, toys and a bed.

Puppy love ain't cheap or fast.
