8/13/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Adam Croasdell -- an actor known for his roles on "Preacher," "Reign" and "NCIS" -- has gone to the cops, claiming he'd been catfished by someone who is now mercilessly harassing him online.

According to new legal docs ... Adam says he began communicating with the owner of the IG account @topthatpose in April 2017, and the 2 eventually exchanged digits and began talking daily.

Adam says the person claimed she was a 24-year-old woman named Gabriella Winters, and they developed a relationship ... but "Gabriella" would always find an excuse to avoid meeting with him ... even on FaceTime.

According to the docs ... Adam broke things off in July 2017, but he began getting bombarded with harassing emails and social media messages shortly thereafter. He claims he was getting 10-50 messages a day from "Gabriella" through hundreds of different accounts.

Adam says the catfisher even pretended to be various members of Gabriella's family.

Croasdell might get justice soon ... a search warrant was issued for the suspect's online accounts.

8/12/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

HGTV -- the house remodeling network with wholesome hosts -- is PISSING OFF neighbors with their 'Brady Bunch' house expansion plans ... 'cause they fear lasting chaos.

Various neighbors on the San Fernando Valley street where the iconic house sits are fuming at the prospect of HGTV's production turning their sleepy enclave into a massive construction zone.

TMZ broke the story, after snagging the house in a $3-plus million sale, the network plans to blow out the back of the house ... and expand it from 2,400 square feet to more than 6,000 square feet.

Neighbors are dreading the construction noise, street congestion, traffic, lookie-loos and HGTV production trucks as cameras chronicle the remodel.

We're told the last time a production crew showed up, an entire street was shut down making it a nightmare for residents to access their houses.

Neighbors just wanna know from HGTV ... how long y'all gonna take on this project?

Stay tuned ... 

Logan Paul I'd Fight Jake Paul ... On One Condition

8/12/2018 12:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wanna see Logan Paul throw fists at his brother, Jake Paul?? Well, better hope for a crappy Thanksgiving in the Paul household.

Logan tells TMZ Sports the ONLY way he'll step in the ring with his YouTube star little brother is if the two have "real-life" beef. 

Judging by the way the two palled around when we got them at LAX this week ... don't bet on that happening any time soon.

It's too bad ... 'cause the two have been training like maniacs for their August 25 superfight with KSI and Deji -- so a Paul showdown would be must-see (YouTube) TV afterward.

BUT ... if the brothers WERE to hypothetically ever step in the squared circle -- Jake did give us his thoughts on who he thinks would win ... and maybe that spurs some drama among the Pauls?!

8/11/2018 7:55 AM PDT

Actress Erika Christensen gave birth to her second child ... but this time around there were no doctors ... just her hubby.

Little Polly was born at home Friday, because there was simply no time to get to the hospital. Erika's husband, Cole Maness, did the honors and delivered his child.

Erika says, "It happened! It happened this morning ... And it will go down in family history because baby girl’s own, incredible Dad delivered her all by himself."

The photo was taken minutes after Polly was born.

Congrats ... and good job, dad!

LeBron James 'Shut Up and Dribble' Fashion War Brewing

8/11/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Shut Up and Dribble" could turn into "Shut Up and Pay Me" for LeBron James.

Despite the fact he's launching a new Showtime series using the 'S.U.A.D.' title, we've learned someone else has already moved on locking down the trademark to use the phrase on clothing. 

Of course, LeBron LOVES to turn his projects and catchphrases into fashion items -- we've seen him do it with "Strive For Greatness" gear and just the other day he rocked a shirt that said "I Promise," the name of his new school in Ohio. 

So, it seems obvious he would try to get the rights to "Shut Up and Dribble" too. 

The problem ... a guy in Jersey named William DelGrande applied for the trademark back in February ... just a few days after FOX News' Laura Ingraham used the phrase to scold LeBron for getting involved in politics. 

DelGrande doesn't own the trademark outright -- at least, not yet -- but he's got a big head start on LeBron ... which gives him an advantage if James makes a claim. 

The good news ... DelGrande says he's willing to drop his claim -- for the right price. 

Don't get it twisted, DelGrande isn't looking for a 7-figure deal -- telling TMZ Sports he'd wave the white flag for a "reasonable price."

Your move, LeBron ...

According to docs filed in Nichelle's conservatorship, Dr. Meena Makhijani -- who specializes in osteopathic medicine -- says Nichols has been a patient of hers for the last 2-3 years ... and she has "moderate progressive dementia."

On the bright side, the doctor says there's no apparent impairment for things like long-term memory, orientation of her body, comprehension, verbal communication, concentration, recognition of familiar people, as well as ability to reason logically and plan actions.

As we reported ... Nichelle's son recently had 4 fiduciaries assigned to her as conservators to prevent her from being taken advantage of by people close to her.

Anthony Anderson, Steven Seagal, Harvey Weinstein Assault Cases Turned Over to D.A.

8/9/2018 3:52 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Anthony Anderson and Steven Seagal assault investigations have been turned over to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the cases were sent over Wednesday by the LAPD for review.

As for Anderson, a woman went to police earlier this year claiming the "Black-ish" actor assaulted her. We do not know specifics, although he strongly denied her claim.

Seagal's been hit with multiple sexual misconduct allegations over the last few months.

You'll recall, two women came forward back in March with accusations against Seagal. One claimed he raped her at his home in 1993 and the other says in 2002, when she was just 17, Seagal pinched her nipples, slid his hand under her bikini and touched her vagina during an audition.

Seagal was also accused of sexual misconduct by Portia de Rossi, who claims he put her on a casting couch and unzipped his leather pants. Julianna Margulies claims in a hotel meeting with Seagal in the '80s, the actor brandished a gun but never touched her before she fled.

And the D.A. also received another Harvey Weinstein sexual assault case. In all, the D.A. is reviewing 6 of his cases.

'Brady Bunch' House HGTV Will Cheese It Up '70s Style!!!

8/9/2018 12:09 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

HGTV -- which just bought the famous 'Brady Bunch' house -- is going to make the inside of the house 1973 authentic, cottage cheese ceilings and all ... and the people who may end up benefiting the most are newlyweds who want to have sex in the bedroom, kitchen or wherever. 

Sources familiar with the project tell TMZ, the network plans to expand the 2,400 square foot house. It's on a big-ass lot and we're told they could add as much as 4,000 square feet to the back.

As for the interior ... the house needs gutting, because it bears no resemblance to the place Mr. Brady hung his hat. The exterior is authentic, but the interiors were all shot on a sound stage. Our sources say HGTV will duplicate the '70s look from the iconic show.

As we reported, Lance Bass wanted the house really badly, and bid nearly $3 mil but, in the end, HGTV offered more. The good news, we're told there's talk of getting Lance involved in the renovations -- which will be the subject of a new HGTV show. Fact is, he flips houses and he's a good host.

Now, get this ... we're told once the renovations are completed and the TV show is wrapped, HGTV will sell the house. Our sources say several hotels are already interested in buying it and turning it into an off-site guest suite ... perfect for honeymooners or anyone who's just really into Florence Henderson.

As for how much the house could fetch on resale ... we're told somewhere between $4 million and $6 million. That's way, way more than any other house in the neighborhood, but hey, that's where Marcia lived.

Lindsay Lohan Struts Her Stuff on Reality Show ... Shrugs Off Haters

8/9/2018 7:07 AM PDT

Lindsay Lohan isn't letting the backlash from her recent comments on the #MeToo movement keep her from doing her thing in Greece.

Lindsay was spotted Wednesday heading out to film her new MTV reality show, "Lohan Beach Club," in Mykonos. She was smiling and wearing a floral sheer dress with a Moschino belt. 

The "Mean Girls" star recently slammed the #MeToo accusers, calling them weak in an interview with The Times. But it doesn't look like the actress is too worried about her comments.

The good news ... Lindsay's back on her feet after being hobbled by a bum ankle during filming. 

The reality show, set to launch in 2019, follows LiLo as she runs her day and nightclub on the Greek isles.

Lance Bass HGTV Wants Him in 'Brady' House Show ... Someway, Somehow

8/9/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lance Bass might have lost a bidding war with HGTV over the 'Brady Bunch' house -- but he's still got a shot to be a part of the iconic property's future ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the situation tell us HGTV brass privately reached out to the 'NSYNC singer Tuesday after he publicly reacted to news the network was the mysterious "corporate buyer" that beat him out in what he initially called a shady deal

We're told HGTV and Lance are scheduled to meet next week to discuss getting him involved in the network's future plans with the house -- namely, restoring it to its 1970s form on the inside for a new TV show. The crib's remained pretty much the same on the outside.

It's unclear what role Lance would play on the project, but we're told anything from producing to even hosting is possible ... and he's open for anything.

If everything works out, the stars will truly align for Lance. Sources close to the singer tell us his original plan -- had he won the bidding war -- was to gut the inside and recreate the TV set.

He won't own it, but sounds like Lance may yet see his dream come true.

Nev Schulman My Next 'Catfish' Co-Host How 'bout Cardi B?!

8/9/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nev Schulman wants Cardi B as his next 'Catfish' co-host 'cause he likes it like that ... but landing her's a different story.

We hit up Nev on the heels of Max Joseph announcing he's leaving the show after 7 seasons as its co-host and wanted to know who's sliding next to him on MTV. Nev starts graciously and says Max is irreplaceable, but adds the show must go on.

And, with that said ... Nev's set his sights on the "Bodak Yellow" rapper. Of course, he's singing her praises, but he knows landing her is tricky for obvious reasons. No problem, he's already thinking of ways to hook her in for at least a guest hosting gig.

If not Cardi, Nev says he's definitely keen on getting a woman's take on the show.

TMZ broke the story ... Max will transition to life behind the camera. His final episode airs August 22.

'OITNB' Star Brad Henke Ex's Restraining Order Case Tossed

8/8/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'OITNB' star Brad Henke doesn't legally have to stay away from his ex-girlfriend anymore, 'cause her temporary restraining order against him was thrown out by a judge. 

According to court docs -- obtained by TMZ -- neither Henke nor his ex, Simone Toliver, showed up to a recent hearing regarding the restraining order she got against him this past May ... so the case was dismissed. 

We broke the story ... Toliver got the TRO after claiming Henke had repeatedly threatened her after they split last year. She claimed he'd violently grabbed her on at least two occasions, among other things. A judge granted her 100 yards of protection at the time.

Sources close to Henke tell TMZ he didn't show because he never even knew Simone had gotten a restraining order against him ... only finding out when asked about the incident by a reporter.

In the dismissal, the judge agreed, Henke was never served with papers. Henke also denies all allegations she made against him.

All's well that ends well (we think). Brad's character seems to be back for season 6, which just dropped on Netflix. And, he's got a ton of other projects in the works.
