Maksim Chmerkovskiy Cops Called to Home By Man Claiming Burglary

4/25/2017 12:34 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Maksim Chmerkovskiy got a visit from cops at his house early Tuesday morning thanks to a guy who called claiming he lived there ... and suspected a break-in. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the police were called out to the home of Maksim and his wife, Peta Murgatroyd, around 2 AM after a man phoned in to report a possible burglary.

We're told the man claimed people were in HIS house. When cops arrived the man was outside and Maksim was inside. The 'DWTS' pro showed police proof he's renting the place -- but the man who called cops had no proof he owns it.

Sources tell us cops have gotten this same call before from the same guy. Officers warned him this time he'd be arrested for trespassing if he tried it again, and he left without incident. 

The situation shook up Maksim enough for him to miss an appearance after being eliminated from 'DWTS' Monday night.

Breaking News

Chris Soules was soft-spoken during his first appearance in front of the judge on his case.

Soules was in Buchanan County Court Tuesday morning -- the judge had to instruct him to speak louder, so the court recorder could actually hear him. KWWL was in court for the hearing.

The ex-'Bachelor' star was charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing death.

As we reported ... Soules was arrested for driving into the back of a John Deere tractor on the road Monday evening. The tractor flipped over, killing 66-year-old Kenny Mosher ... a local farmer.

Soules posted his $10,000 bond after court and was released. His rep says Chris "was devastated to learn that Kenneth Mosher passed away. His thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Mosher's family."

Jesse Williams Me Dating Minka? Here's My Answer ...

4/25/2017 9:38 AM PDT

Jesse Williams is keeping tight-lipped about his divorce, but he absolutely has a response to rumors he's dating Minka Kelly.

Jesse was flying out of LAX Tuesday morning when we asked about his split from Aryn after nearly 5 years of marriage. The "Grey's Anatomy" star was trying to keep a low profile -- hoodie up, shades on -- and not at all talkative.

Still, he dressed appropriately for the occasion -- because he let the message on the back of his jacket do the talking when asked if things are serious with Minka.

As we reported, he's been hanging out with her in Paris while they work on a video game production.

Caitlyn Jenner to John Leguizamo How'd Ya Like the Chick Experience? ... Awkwardness Ensues

4/25/2017 8:40 AM PDT

Caitlyn Jenner created a super awkward moment when she asked John Leguizamo if he enjoyed dressing up like a woman.

Caitlyn was a guest on 'Live' with Kelly Ripa, and John was her guest co-host. CJ made a callback to John's classic role in "Too Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar" ... where he played a drag queen.

He was brutally honest about the experience. Kelly seemed to squirm. Caitlyn's reaction ... you should see what I've gone through!

Pretty sure it's not a competition, but Caitlyn's right about one thing: John did slay in 'Wong Foo' ...

Scott Baio on Erin Moran I Wouldn't Have Raised Drug Issues If I Knew About the Cancer

4/25/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Baio feels terrible for ripping his co-star, Erin Moran, for her drug use and says he never would have done it if he'd known she was battling cancer.

Scott tells TMZ he was wrong to insinuate Erin -- his "Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi" co-star -- had died from drug-related problems. He went pretty hard on her during a radio interview Monday morning.

He tells us he went to bed Sunday reading reports she'd possibly died of a heroin overdose, and went into the interview with that in mind. He was upset he'd lost Erin to drugs after she wrestled with substance abuse for years.

However, hours after he went off the air ... officials in Indiana announced Erin had likely died from complications of stage 4 cancer. Scott says if he had known, he would've kept his mouth shut.

He tells us Erin never disclosed her diagnosis to him -- even after his wife, Renee, spoke to her just last month. He adds ... Renee has battled cancer herself several times, so losing Erin this way hits close to home.

Paris Jackson's putting in some serious work on her acting career, and she's getting to do it her way ... punk rock chick all day!

MJ's daughter was shooting Monday in the San Fernando Valley, and sporting a look she's been rolling with for a while now. Edgy just fits the 19-year-old model and actress.

Unclear what she was shooting Monday, but last week Paris was working on Lee Daniels' "Star" alongside "Stranger Things" star Millie Bobby Brown.

She slipped into something a little more comfortable on her way home. Uggs for the win, baby!

Tony Gonzalez says he was NOT forced out at CBS to make room for the new guy, Tony Romo -- telling TMZ Sports the decision to leave was HIS and his alone.

The future Hall of Fame tight end spent 3 seasons on "The NFL Today" (and was pretty good) only to announce he was leaving the show back in March.

A few days later, CBS announced Romo was joining the network as a live game broadcaster -- replacing Phil Simms who will take over for Gonzalez on "The NFL Today."

So ... was Tony G pushed out??

Gonzalez is adamant the answer is 'No' -- and gives a pretty solid explanation about his career choice.

And for the record, Tony G says he wishes Romo well and even offers some advice.

Dr. David Dao's Lawyer Repping Mom from American Airlines 'Her Concern Was Her Child'

4/24/2017 7:45 AM PDT

Dr. David Dao's lawyer from the United incident is now on board for the mom from the American Airlines incident, but it sounds like this one ain't going to court.

Attorney Tom Demetrio went on "Today" Monday morning to announce he's representing her, and clarifies she was not actually struck by the stroller, but says the flight attendant came damn close to hitting his client's baby.

He admits the fact that neither mother nor child were actually struck means a lawsuit probably won't happen. As we reported, American suspended the employee, apologized for his actions and upgraded the mother to first class for the remainder of her trip to Argentina.

Meanwhile, Demetrio says Dr. Dao is still hurt from the United confrontation, and confirms what we already suspected ... they're filing suit.
