38 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Brea Grant Restraining OrderFormer "Heroes" actress Brea Grant channeled her super sonic character to evade the man who chased her down a street ... and a court has just granted her a restraining order.

According to the docs ... Grant -- who played the speedy Daphne Millbrook -- got a judge to slap a restraining order on the complete stranger she claims tried to barge his way into the home she shares with boyfriend Kevin Pereira and screamed he loved her on the front lawn.

Grant says she even called the cops twice on the guy back in November after he chased her to her car and down a city street.

The man is ordered to stay 100 yards away from both Grant and Pereira

He better learn fast.

Little Girls Look Up to Me Now!

EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham is an example to young women on what NOT to do -- and yet pre-teen girls are flocking to her like she's a modern day Mother Teresa. Apologies to Mother Teresa's spirit.

Abraham and her sparkling resume -- teen mom, stripper, porn star, author, DUI arrestee -- were leaving Planet Hollywood in NYC ... when an alarmingly young fan stopped her for a photo. 

And then we got an even bigger shock as Farrah revealed she's going to become a plastic surgeon! Seriously ... she says.

The phrase, "Do what you know" comes to mind ...

From 'Wolf of Wall St.'

3/31/2015 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's nice to set goals ... and for Rob Gronkowski, his newest target is to nail the hot chick from "Wolf of Wall Street."

Gronk's appearing on Wednesday's season premiere of "The Jim Rome Show" ... and explained that he's wanted to bone Margot Robbie ever since he first saw her in the Leonardo DiCaprio flick. 

But get this ... Gronk also laid out the qualities he wants in his FUTURE WIFE. 

You gotta listen to what he says ... Gloria Steinem is gonna have a heart attack.

Marlon Wayans

N-Word's Come a Long Way

But Still Not Right for 'Empire'

3/31/2015 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Count Marlon Wayans among those who believe the world is not ready for the N-word on "Empire," because what big company wants to be associated with that?

Wayans was leaving the gym Monday afternoon when our photog asked him about the topic that seems to have divided the show -- Terrence Howard is for using the word, but some of the writers and Taraji P. Henson are against it.

It doesn't sound like Wayans is against using the word in general -- you gotta hear his slave chains metaphor -- but he thinks sponsors would drop like flies if Lucious Lyon started tossing it around.

Making money? Lucious can respect that.

'Shark Tank' Star

Mayweather Ticket Prices Are Crazy

... Even For Me!

3/31/2015 8:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

He's worth a gazillion dollars (or something like that) ... but even super rich "Shark Tank" star Robert Herjavec thinks paying $87,500 for a ringside seat to May vs. Pac is nothing short of crazy. 

Herjavec was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood Monday night when we asked about the first fight tickets to hit the market -- and his reaction is interesting ... considering he's exactly the kind of guy who could actually consider forking over the dough for a seat. 

That being said ... think Mark Cuban will buy a seat? 

David Lee Roth

Who Gave Me This Bloody Nose?

Oh Right, It Was Me!

3/31/2015 7:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Lee Roth has no one to blame but himself for that bloody gash he had on his nose during "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" ... because he whacked himself during his signature mic stand trick.

Roth and the rest of Van Halen reunited for an epic performance on "Kimmel" Monday night, but the sanitized version that aired didn't tell the whole story. 

During the initial performance of "Panama" ... Roth hit himself in the face with his mic stand while twirling it, leaving a cut across the bridge of his nose.

0331-subasset-van-halen-gettyHe kept going, eventually walking offstage to grab a towel. He then patched it up with a band-aid and did the song again. That's the version that aired. 

The show must go on.

Terrence Howard

Ex-Wife Claims

He's Screwing Me Royally Over 'Empire'

3/31/2015 8:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Terrence Howard Ex Wife Money

Terrence Howard owes his ex-wife $508,000 and counting ... so she claims, and she's gunning for a payday.

Michelle Ghent claims Terrence has been hiding assets and grossly undervaluing what he makes a month to avoid his spousal support obligations.

TMZ broke the story ... Terrence is required to pay Michelle $5,800 a month in spousal support, but if he makes more than $62,500 a quarter, she gets 21% of the excess. According to her docs, Terrence made $125,000 an episode in Season 1 and he's sure to get a huge raise.

Michelle claims Terrence has not only failed to pay the 21%, but she says he's way behind in the $5,800 monthly obligation ... to the tune of more than $100k.

Also according to Michelle's docs, Terrence is using his first ex-wife's business to divert his earnings, making it appear he earns very little. In fact, Terrence claimed as recently as November all he was getting in the way of income was just shy of $6k a month ... money that was paid by the ex-wife's business.

"Empire" started shooting in September, so that's when the bucks started rolling in.

But all good things come to an end, and according to the divorce, Michelle's spousal support ends next year.

'CSI' Star Jon Wellner Divorce

My Wife Should Quit Acting

And Get A REAL Job

EXCLUSIVE

Jon Wellner Divorce

"CSI" star Jon Wellner has called it quits on his marriage after 7 years, and says it's time his wife gave up on her acting, got off her ass and started working.

According to the divorce docs ... Jon says his wife, Whitney Wellner, hasn't made it as an actress and probably never will ... he's asking the courts to force her into pulling down a full-time job.

Whitney lists her credits like "Save the Last Dance" -- released in 2001. She also got a guest gig on "CSI" last year, but he insinuates it was a case of nepotism.

Whitney fires back in her legal docs, saying he obviously thought she was good enough to appear on his show.

She's presumably gunning for spousal support, and it's gonna be hard for her to live without it. While she says he makes $20k an episode, she pulls in $12 a month in residuals.

Who knew they were still playing "Save the Last Dance"?

'Jerry Springer' Producer

Cops Believe Sister's Death Wasn't Suicide

It Was Murder

3/31/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Springer Producer Sister Murder
"Jerry Springer" producer Jill Blackstone did not carry out her sister's wish to end her life -- she murdered her ... at least that's what law enforcement now believes.

Our law enforcement sources say Wendy Blackstone -- who was deaf and partially blind -- did not want to end her life. During the initial stage of the investigation we're told cops thought this might have been a double suicide plan where Jill backed out at the last minute, but now they believe it's simple murder.

TMZ broke the story ... Wendy was found dead in their garage and Jill had severe carbon monoxide poisoning from a lit barbecue in their closed garage. We're now told in addition to the coals under the grill, there was a metal trash can filled with charcoal which had also burned.

Cops determined early on ... the suicide note found in Wendy's hand was not written by her ... they believe Jill wrote it.

Blackstone was arrested for murder earlier this month but the D.A. felt there wasn't enough evidence to make a case, so prosecutors sent it back to the LAPD for further investigation. In the meantime, Jill remains free.

But now we're told ... after more probing, the cops firmly believe it was murder.

French Montana was not under the influence of alcohol when he was photographed drinking Ciroc from the bottle while cruising on one of Diddy's Sea-Doos ... so claim people close to the rapper.

As we previously reported ... French was in Miami Beach Saturday, catching some rays and drinking vodka. It's not illegal in Florida to drink while boating, but it IS illegal to drink to the point that the driver is impaired.

Although our French sources insist he "was not f***** up," Khloe posted a pic around the same time showing her crew -- including French -- on Diddy's roof with the caption, "The Ciroc made us do it!! #StepIntoTheCircle."

Rob Kardashian DrivingRob Kardashian -- who hasn't been seen for months -- emerged from his Calabasas home this weekend to run a few errands with friends.

It's hard to get a good look, but what you see is clear ... he looks about the same. 

Rob famously went into seclusion before Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kanye West, partially due to self-image problems over his weight.

Having barely been seen or heard since, Rob did make a cameo on social media recently ... to trash his sister Kim.

Terrence Howard's Ex-Wife

Move Over, Cookie ...

I'm Taking My Cut of the 'Empire'

3/30/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Terrence Howard Ex Wife Empire SalarySomeone else is digging into Lucious Lyon's pockets -- Terrence Howard's real life ex-wife is demanding a chunk of his "Empire" salary.

Michelle Howard is already supposed to get $5,800 per month from Terrence -- but according to new docs ... she stands to benefit greatly from his astronomical success on the FOX show, and here's why.

The deal is Michelle gets 21% of anything Terrence made over $62,500 in the first 3 months of this year. As we previously reported ... Michelle says Terrence pulls in $125k per episode -- and sources tell us 3 episodes were shot this year.

We did the math, and he needs to cut her a check for about $65k. That's just from his "Empire" money. Remember, Terrence has another show -- "Wayward Pines" -- debuting on FOX this year ... so she'll get some chunk of that.

Bottom line -- they had a nasty divorce, but it's safe to say Michelle's now rooting for Terrence.
