Seth Gilliam Arrested For DUI

Seth Gilliam plays a priest on "The Walking Dead," but got busted for blazing like a bat out of hell down a highway, possession of marijuana, and DUI. Let us pray. 

Police in Peachtree City, GA arrested Gilliam -- who also played a cop on "The Wire" -- early Sunday morning after officers say they clocked him at 107 mph. Once he was pulled over ... cops smelled booze, and asked Gilliam if he'd been drinking. They say he admitted to having 3 beers and a shot.

According to the police report, the arresting officer also discovered a joint in a cigarette box, hidden in the arm rest.

Cops say Gilliam blew a .107 blood alcohol level. He was arrested and released after posting a $9,818 bond.

It's weird -- Seth's arrest came 2 days after his 'Wire' and 'Walking' co-star Chad L. Coleman freaked out on an NYC train. Something in the water?

Kylie and Kendall

Don't You Dare Use Our Names!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0501-kylie-jenner-name-kylie-minogue-kendal-jenner-TMZ-GETTY-01

WARNING TO KYLIE MINOGUE OR ANYONE ELSE NAMED KYLIE ... YOU MAY NO LONGER BE ALLOWED TO USE YOUR FIRST NAME BECAUSE A 17-YEAR-OLD THINKS IT SHOULD BE HERS AND HERS ALONE. 

It's all part of the Kardashian's blitzkrieg campaign.  We've learned Kylie Jenner has filed an application last month to trademark her first name to "entertainment in the nature of providing information by means of a global computer network in the fields of entertainment, fashion and pop culture."  0501-sub-kendall-kylie-tear-tss-03Kylie also wants to mark her territory for personal appearances "by a celebrity, actress and model."

Although someone might theoretically use the name "Kylie" with a different font, K.J.'s lawyers could swoop in and argue it creates confusion among consumers.  So Kylie Minogue, move over.

BTW ... Kendall has filed an application to trademark her first name for the same purposes.

So watch your ass, Ken Doll.

Kylie Jenner

DWI

Driving While Instagramming

5/4/2015 6:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0504-kylie-jenner-instagramKylie Jenner did her dad no favors by posting a pic she took of herself driving on an L.A. freeway ... at the same time Bruce is under investigation for a fatal car accident he caused by being inattentive.

The 17-year-old posted the POV shot Sunday -- bragging about her Calabasas roots and adding, "I'll probably die here." Considering her dad's situation ... the freeway pic could be taken another way.

Kylie's driving decisions should have absolutely nothing to do with Bruce, but the reality is ... prosecutors go after people for all sorts of reasons, and one involves sending messages. If the D.A. thinks the whole family flaunts the laws of the road, it can't be good for Bruce.

And don't forget, she's already being sued for a car accident she allegedly caused just a few weeks after getting her license. 

Bottom line -- this is not a good look.

'Two & A Half Men' Child Star

TV Honchos Hooked ...

The Kid Stays In Our Pictures

5/4/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Two and a Half Men Child Actor SalaryEdan Alexander is only 7 years old, but looks like the big wigs behind "Two and A Half Men" feel they've found the golden child, because they're throwing down big bucks to keep him around.

According to his minors contract, Edan scored $20k for each of his 10 episodes on the show's final season, and producers were so impressed they included an option for a whole new series.

If the new still untitled series gets picked up, he'll pull down $21,240 an episode with 4% bumps for every season that follows.

It's a far cry from the $1.8 mil/episode Charlie Sheen was hauling in, but at least Chuck Lorre likes him.

And isn't that worth something?

Mama June Strip Club

Mama June's making stacks o' cash from a Florida strip club -- and in related news ... there's a polar vortex pushing through hell. 

A rep for June tells TMZ the "Honey Boo Boo" matriarch has a signed deal to appear later this month at Crazy Horse Gentlemen's Club in Pompano Beach -- but before you start booking flights ... we're told June's keeping her clothes on.

June will pocket $5,500 for the meet and greet with fans, and get VIP treatment -- including first class airfare and deluxe hotel accommodations. 

Although she won't be in her birthday suit ... there's a chance June might hop onstage to show off her new figure. She's lost 45 pounds!

Bonus for June -- the club's got a killer menu ... though that might not jive with her diet.  

'Gotham' Child Star

Young Catwoman

EXCLUSIVE

0501-camren-bicondova-instagram"Gotham" actress Camren Bicondova is laughing all the way to the piggy bank ... the 15-year-old is making a fortune as Selina Kyle.

According to her contract which was filed with the court, Camren makes $17,500 per episode while providing a little eye-opening insight into Catwoman's past. And that's just for the first season.

If the show makes it seven seasons, she'll rake in $20,477 an episode  ... not bad for someone who was a runner-up on "America's Best Dance Crew."

She's made a grand total of $385k for Season 1. That's impressive, but dwarfed by Michelle Pfeiffer, who pulled in $3 mil for her cat lady role while Halle Berry snagged $14 mil.

5/3/2015 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas is a tough guy -- but could he survive in the wild if was forced to go on that show "Naked & Afraid?" 

The NFL stud says he THINKS he hang on the survivalist show for about 3 days -- but then he'd be toast.

Check out the clip -- Julius doesn't seem to think that his NFL toughness would come into play out in the wilderness ... saying he'd be out of the competition before you can say "chaffed balls."

11:45 AM PT -- Michelle just tweeted -- "After hearing my credential was pulled, I went home. Told this morning that HBO was able to get it re-approved late last night. That's it. All she wrote. I will now concentrate on Game 7. #GoSpursGo"

10:53 AM PT --Floyd's camp says the reporters are ALL WRONG -- claiming they were NEVER blocked from attending the fight.

Floyd's rep Kelly Swanson just went to Twitter and said, "No one including ME banned [Rachel Nichols] from covering the fight. She is already credentialed. #Facts"

"And [Michelle Beadle] isn't even on the pres list. She's credentialed through [HBO Boxing]. Yes credentialed. #Fact#2"

Swanson says both reporters still have their credentials.

update_grey_gray_barESPN reporter Michelle Beadle says she has been blocked from attending tonight's Mayweather v. Pacquiao fight ... and claims it's all because she ruffled some feathers in Mayweather's camp.

Floyd's camp hasn't explained why Beadle is blocked -- but it seems it has to do with the fact Michelle has been critical of Floyd and his history with domestic violence.

CNN reporter Rachel Nichols says she has also been blocked from the fight -- Nichols has suggested the ban has to do with the fact she pressed Mayweather on his violent past during an interview back in September.

We're reaching out to Mayweather's camp for an explanation, stay tuned.

Val's partner, Rumer Willis, was licking her chops at the prospect Val and Artem Chigvintsev will be shirtless on the show next week, and Val explained there's more to him and Arlem than just pecs and a handsome face.

'Walking Dead' Star

I Regret NYC Subway Rant

EXCLUSIVE

"Walking Dead" star Chad L. Coleman regrets causing a scene on a NYC subway Friday, but stands by his message.

Coleman tells us, he had a lot of "built up frustration" because of the Baltimore situation and just lost it when someone on the train used the "n" word in referring to him.  The guy's friend said she recognized Coleman, and he responded by saying, "No, we don't know that n*****."

Coleman insists he was not drunk during the rant, but adds he's not proud he couldn't control his emotions.  

And the actor wanted to apologize to cast members of "The Walking Dead" and his family.

Hey, Bruce ...

Hands Off My Glam Team!

5/1/2015 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian will support Bruce Jenner in any way she can during his transition ... except when it comes to the people who make HER look good.

KK was a guest Thursday night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and talked about how Bruce has been doing since last week's big interview.

Bruce specifically called out Kim during his Diane Sawyer interview  ... saying she's been the most supportive of all his children. But Kim told Jimmy her help was limited to just her and not her "glam team."

A girl cannot be expected to part with her glam team.
