Lauren Conrad Sued She's a Dognapper!

2/4/2016 4:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0204-lauren-conrad-tmz-01"The Hills" star Lauren Conrad is guilty of jacking 2 surfing dogs for use on her website ... according to a new lawsuit.

Okay, LC didn't walk off with the actual pups -- Incredible Features Inc. says she merely stole 2 photos of the athletic pets, and slapped them up on her website. 

As lawsuits go, it's a pretty entertaining read. IFI says, "In the dog eat dog world of online content ... Lauren Conrad, a sophisticated website operator, is cognizant of the value of high-quality photography." IFI says it owns the images that are now on her site.

0204_lauren_conrad_dog_subThe suit points out Lauren's site isn't a blog but a "commercial enterprise through which Conrad shills her Kohl's clothing line amongst other things." 

Kohl's cheap shot aside -- IFI wants Lauren to take down the images, and it wants any profits she earned on the dogs' backs. We've reached out to LC ... no word back yet.

0120-inxs-garry-gettyINXS bassist Garry Beers says he got his ass kicked by an angry neighbor who flew into a rage after Beers' boxer dared to step onto the neighbor's property ... so claims the musician. 

Beers says it went down in the San Fernando Valley when he was walking his boxer Evie and the dog slipped out of its collar onto Robert McGuigan's property. Beers says McGuigan went nuclear, repeatedly kicking him in the face while calling him a "motherf*****."

Beers says before the attack he had assured McGuigan Evie was friendly, but McGuigan's dog starting acting up and the situation exploded.

What's especially galling for Beers ... he says McGuigan is new to the neighborhood and is acting like a bully. In fact Beers says he and his wife saw McGuigan a few weeks later at a park and the neighbor threatened to "finish things."

Beers got a restraining order requiring McGuigan to stay 100 yards clear of him and his family.

BTW ... Beers also filed a lawsuit against McGuigan, saying he's in a new "supergroup" called Stadium and is unable to play or compose music since the beating.

EXCLUSIVE

0118_miley_liam_pets-tmz_instagramLiam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus are shacking up, and Liam isn't getting one new roommate ... he's getting 5.

Miley moved into her former, and possibly current fiance's Malibu home last week and we've learned she brought her four dogs along.

They now have SIX DOGS between them ... not counting Miley's other pets.

The two aren't without help -- Liam has a couple of extra hands who live with him and they're all sharing in doggie responsibilities. 

Miley may be cashing in on a debt, because she watched one of Liam's dogs a couple months ago while he was away. 

Miley Cyrus ... Must Love Dogs.

SF 49ers Sued for Booting Service Dog and Owner

1/9/2016 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The San Francisco 49ers booted a fan and his service dog from Levi's Stadium which made the fan have a seizure ... according to the lawsuit he's now filed against the team.

James Hilburn says he and his Alaskan malamute, Bear, had no problems entering the Niners-Cardinals game on November 29 -- the ticket taker let them in, no questions asked. In his suit, Hilburn says he suffers myoclonic dystonia ... which causes seizures. Bear is trained to alert him and people nearby when one is about to hit.

In the lawsuit, James says once he entered the staidum, police and security guards surrounded him and said Bear was not allowed to be there -- and the stressful situation triggered a seizure.

TMZ Sports obtained video Hilburn's friend shot, and you can hear Bear yelping a warning. Police and stadium staff attempted to get a shuttle to pick them up, but Hilburn declined. He did end up suffering, and had to be hospitalized, according to his lawyer Mark Thomas.

Hilburn wants the team to pay for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act.

We reached out to the 49ers who told us they do not comment on pending litigation.

Breaking News

Floyd Mayweather is ANGRY that Chrissy Teigen would dare insult his decision to get a pet tiger -- and now he's lashing out at the supermodel over it. 

After Mayweather revealed his new pet -- Teigen went to Twitter and wrote, "I'm okay with people having pet tigers because it increases their chances of being eaten by a tiger."

Well, Floyd no likey -- 'cause he just appeared on FightHype.com and fired off some not-so-subtle insults right back at her. 

"John Legend's wife said something? I've never had anything negative to say about John Legend. I really don't even know what his wife does."

Ouch. 

And then the worst insult a supermodel can get -- "I never seen John Legend's wife in my life. And if I did I probably just don't remember it."

Ouch again. 

For the record, Mayweather promises he'll be responsible with his new pets -- "I'm not getting a tiger to let my tiger run around the city and bite people. We're trying to help save tigers."

Mandy Moore My Divorce Is Going to the Dogs ... and Cats Too

12/9/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1208-mandy-moore-instagram-01Mandy Moore's divorce has hit a hiccup thanks to her house full of cats and dogs.

Mandy filed to divorce singer Ryan Adams back in January, and she just filed new docs saying they've been unable to agree on a settlement because Ryan won't pay spousal support, beyond splitting their mortgage. 

In the docs, she says Ryan earns $151k per month while she rakes in less than a quarter of that.

Her other issue ... their EIGHT pets -- 6 cats, 2 dogs -- that she says she's been taking care of on her own since they separated. Mandy says Ryan promised to take at least 2 of the cats, but didn't.

Translation: He p**sied out. 

Now Mandy wants Ryan to pay her $37k per month until they sort out the divorce terms -- and she's insisting he take 4 of the pets immediately. Sounds like someone's gonna be shoveling s**t.
