Brody Jenner LOSES IT On Hotel Staff ... Screw You for Booting Me!

9/27/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Brody Jenner is going to war with a ritzy OC hotel after he totally flipped out on 2 staffers who had entered his room to kick him off the property.

TMZ obtained this video of Brody's rage Sunday morning in the lobby of the Laguna Cliffs Marriott -- he's ripping into 2 security guards, and threatening to press charges against them. Sources close to Brody tell us it all started with a misunderstanding ... when he wanted to be let into his manager's room to grab some personal items.

When the hotel said that wasn't allowed, Brody got angry. We're told he was actually pissed about the situation, and at his manager. However, the hotel staffer thought Brody was going off on them ... and sent security to kick him out.

We're told Brody says they entered without knocking, and that was the last straw for him.

Law enforcement tells us Orange County Sheriff's deputies were called to the hotel around 7 AM to keep the peace. Deputies spoke to Brody, and eventually ... he calmly left the hotel.

Brad Pitt Child Abuse Report Referred to FBI

9/22/2016 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0922-brad-pitt-tmzThe child abuse allegations against Brad Pitt have been referred over to the FBI ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported, the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services received an anonymous call that Brad was wasted on a private jet last week and became physically and verbally abusive to his kids.

As we reported, the DCFS followed protocol and notified the LAPD. Law enforcement sources say the LAPD's Abused Child Unit (ACU) got the report, but determined that the Department did not have jurisdiction because the alleged incident occurred in the air, on a flight from France to the U.S.

We know ... the plane landed a week ago Wednesday just before 8 PM at an airport in Minnesota. That's when eyewitnesses say Brad was "out of control" on the tarmac and even tried to leave in a fuel truck.

Our LAPD sources say because the incident occurred in the air, the FBI has jurisdiction. The ACU then closed its file and referred the matter to the FBI.  

As we reported, DCFS has already interviewed Brad and Angelina separately and they will also interview the kids. Our LAPD sources say if those interviews produce information suggesting there was possible abuse at their L.A. family home, the LAPD will open a new case. 

Our Pitt sources say the actor denies committing any sort of abuse.

Brad Pitt Under Investigation for Child Abuse

9/22/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0921_brad_pitt_gettyBrad Pitt is under investigation by the LAPD and L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services for allegedly getting verbally abusive and physical with his children, and that's what triggered the divorce ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Brad, Angelina and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got wasted on the private jet. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids.

We're told the plane landed at an airport around 8 PM, and witnesses say Pitt continued his rant on the tarmac, and even tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.

Our sources say someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. We're told Brad and Angelina have already been interviewed and DCFS plans to interview the kids as well. That investigation is ongoing.

We're also told the LAPD has the case ... which is routine when anyone reports child abuse. We do not know the specifics of the alleged abuse ... just that it was supposedly both verbal and physical.

Our sources say this incident triggered Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce just days later.

A source close to Brad tells TMZ, "He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children," adding, "It's unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him in the worst possible light."

Anthony Michael Hall Allegedly Attacks Neighbor Caught On Video

9/19/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Breakfast Club" star Anthony Michael Hall is being investigated for allegedly attacking his neighbor, leaving the man with a broken wrist and hurt back ... and it was all caught on tape.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Hall's neighbor called 911 ... claiming the actor violently shoved him to the ground, hurting him badly.

The alleged victim told cops ... the ruckus began when he left their condo gate open. The guy says Hall shouted to close the gate, came over and slammed it shut, and then melted down.

Check out the security footage ... it shows the 2 men in each other's faces when suddenly the alleged victim goes flying backward. Hall then storms away.

This isn't the first time AMH's been accused of being a bad neighbor. Condo residents claimed back in 2011 Hall scared the crap out of them, screaming obscenities and looking for fights. 

We've reached out to Hall for comment. So far, no word back.

Playmate Dani Mathers Not Interested in Learning from Her Mistakes ... Anti-bullying Org Claims

9/17/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0916-dani-mathers-INSTAGRAM-01Dani Mathers cozied up to an anti-cyberbullying group after her despicable body shaming incident in an L.A. gym, but went radio silent when it came time to do any work ... according to the organization.

Cure the Hate tells TMZ they first reached out to Mathers after she made headlines for posting a photo of the unsuspecting woman -- but only heard back when police turned up the heat on her.

TMZ broke the story ... cops found Mathers' victim and earlier this month recommended she be prosecuted. Cure the Hate says that's when Mathers said she wanted to partner up ... but they now believe it was just lip service.

The org says they followed up with her 7 times, but never heard a peep. Cure the Hate thinks Mathers' actions, or lack thereof, show she's not serious about making good after the incident.

We reached out to her, but never heard back.

Interestingly, after we called Mathers she finally called Cure the Hate on Friday ... only to say she was taking a pass. 

Michelle Rodriguez Lighten Up, People ... I'm Bisexual, Never Transphobic!!

9/16/2016 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michelle Rodriguez doesn't think anyone will be offended by her new movie ... because her own sexuality proves she'd never hurt transgender people or anyone in the LGBT community.

We got the "Fast & Furious" star at LAX talking about her role in the action film "(Re) Assignment" -- in which she plays a male assassin who undergoes a sex change against his will by a deranged surgeon.

It's clear she's peeved about the controversy ... and has some simple advice for any haters.

Take a look at what Michelle had to go through to play the role of Tomboy.

Heheheh at TIFF promoting 'TomBoy A Revengers Tale' producers are convinced the new movie title should be re-assignment but I'll stick to the title I signed on to shoot... 'Tomboy'. It's in the B Movie genre, a culture shock pic, shot like a 'film Noir' graphic novel. I played a male assassin for four days in the movie, boy was that beard itchy. Then out revenge, a twisted Doctor played by Sigourney Weaver decides to take my character's manhood away with a sex change to teach him a lesson. I never felt more like a woman than when I played a man. For the rest of the film I was a man stuck in a newly operated sex changed body. I had fake boob covers to look like man implants & I wore a fake hairy 'mangina' which you can't really see cause they made it so hairy. In retrospect I'm I glad took the plunge, the industry seems to be running low on edgy creativity & 'real take a chance' controversy, sometimes it makes me want to scream, instead I did what I always do when I'm bored with the 'status quo', I shot crazy b movie Indy to express my frustration. I wish I had more than a few weeks to prepare for this flic, I would have gained a lot more weight, & we would have made some hairy arms to match my Mediterranean look. I feel that my skinny build sometimes comes off hermaphoditic in the film, especially when you add the crazy male chest for the nude sequences. Lol hope y'all will enjoy the flic sometime, when we sell it of course... It's interesting to say the least.

EXCLUSIVE

0906-nelly-tmz-02Nelly might wanna tighten his belt, he's staring down one of the biggest celeb tax liens we've ever seen ... topping the $2 mil mark! 

Uncle Sam nailed Nelly with a $2,412,283 federal tax lien in August. The tab is so big, the IRS could start seizing his assets and property. 

He's also got state tax trouble -- earlier this year, the Missouri Department of Revenue said the St. Louis rapper owed $149,511 in unpaid state taxes from 2013. He originally owed a mere $113,533 ... but interest is a bitch.

Sources close to Nelly tell us he's already working with the tax authorities to resolve the issues.

Manny Pacquiao I Regret Comparing Gays to Animals, But ...

9/9/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Manny Pacquiao says he made a "mistake" by saying gay people are worse than animals earlier this year -- but stands firm on his anti-gay beliefs.

PacMan was promoting his upcoming fight against Jessie Vargas when he told us he regretted making the comments back in February ... saying, "I'm just human. Nobody's perfect."

Of course, Manny started a firestorm when he went on a TV show in the Philippines and said heterosexuality is "common sense" -- you'd have to be dumber than an animal to not understand. 

Pacquiao was fired by Nike and banned from The Grove shopping center in L.A. in the wake of his comments -- but now, he's expressing remorse ... kinda.

Breaking News

0830_rodney-harrison_colin_kaepernick_gettyRodney Harrison is in full backtrack mode -- apologizing for saying Colin Kaepernick is NOT a black person ... saying, "I never even knew he was mixed."

That being said, here's what Rodney posted on Twitter: 

"I never intended to offend anyone, I was trying to speak about my experiences as a African American. I apologize to anyone that I offended, wasn't meant to be hurtful to anyone. God bless."

"Last point I want people to know. I never even knew he was mixed."

Question is ... you buyin' it?
