Dominic Monaghan Obsessed Fan Threatens To Kill Him ... John Lennon Style

3/27/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0325-dominic-monaghan-TMZ-01Dominic Monaghan is scared for his life after an accused stalker threatened to assassinate him just like the famous Beatle.

As TMZ reported, Meredith McLarty's been harassing the actor since 2014 ... but things got real scary when cops say she tweeted, "Three words ...Mark David Chapman..." She went on, "Save #domswildthings." 

Chapman's the guy who killed John Lennon in 1980 and @domswildthings is Monaghan's Twitter handle ... so it's pretty clear McLarty threatened to murder the actor.

The woman tweeted the threat in March, 2015, but the info just became public in legal docs. 

Monaghan got a restraining order last year but McLarty was undeterred and got arrested for violating it by continuing to tweet and email him.

As of now, she's on the run. There's currently a warrant out for her arrest.

0325_makela_steamy_launchThe hot chick who clogged a toilet with poop during a date and put it in her purse has attracted suitors like flies on s***.

Makela from Canada went massively viral this week after tweeting about her disastrous date ... she was at his house, went to the bathroom but his toilet wouldn't flush, so she scooped the toilet and deposited her handiwork in her clutch.

The date is now history, but turns out it's a thing for lots of guys. She tells us she's being hit up by admirers who apparently want an encore performance.

Can you imagine the chaos she'd create on a Carnival cruise?

"I want to apologize to everyone. My ExGirlfriend hacked my account and sent out an inappropriate picture. Please except my apology."

032116-kim-kardashian-kim-trippKim Kardashian said her goodbye to Kim Tripp, the pint-sized woman who played her to a tee at Beacher's Madhouse.

Kim K. sent her thoughts and prayers to Tripp's friends and family, writing, "Rest in peace beautiful soul."

Tripp was found dead at her Las Vegas home Sunday by her boyfriend, who plays mini-Kanye West at the Vegas revue. We're told it looks like her death was health-related.

Tripp had become a centerpiece of the show. She was only 32.


Westboro Baptist Church Boycotting Gay Player In NCAA Tourney

3/16/2016 6:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0316-derrick-gordon-twitter-02Fear not, raging homophobes ... when the first openly gay man to play in the NCAA tournament takes the court in Denver Thursday, the a-holes from the Westboro Baptist Church have vowed to be there to picket. 

Seton Hall's Derrick Gordon went public about his sexual orientation roughly 2 years ago ... but this is the first year he'll be playing in the biggest tournament in college basketball as an openly gay man.  

Most people are hailing it as a triumph ... but the Westboro Baptist Church says it's an abomination. 

"Satan-inspired media loves to stoke his rebellion, but we'll protest @marchmadness for Derrick Gordon," the church tweeted. 

So far, Gordon hasn't responded -- seems he's too busy focused on the actual game. 

Kanye West 1 Step Closer to Making Over Clippers Mascot

3/14/2016 9:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

031416-kanye-steve-ballmer-tmzRest easy, Clippers Nation ... Kanye West is one step closer to redesigning your HORRENDOUS mascot after lining up a sit down with Clips owner Steve Ballmer.

The Clippers introduced Chuck the Condor last month, and almost everyone loathed the thing -- including Kanye -- who begged Ballmer over the weekend to let him redesign it.

Well, Steve was paying attention and tweeted back he's open to discussing it. Now 'Ye just responded ... "%1000 Steve Ballmer. Let's meet this week if you have time. I was hanging with Chris Paul last night." Nice name drop, btw.

For the sake of sports fans and lovers of all things not horrible ... PLEASE let this happen. 

By the way, we got DeAndre Jordan last night and asked how he felt about a possible Kanye collaboration ... he definitely seems entertained by the idea. 

Terrell Owens I'm Over Marvin Harrison Drama

3/14/2016 8:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Looks like Terrell Owens is taking the high road in his beef with Marvin Harrison ... even though he's yet to get an apology.

Owens was arriving at Staples Center Sunday for the Clippers game -- and we asked if he thinks Harrison owes him a "my bad" for ripping Owens over this year's Hall of Fame voting results ... Harrison got in, T.O. didn't.

Check out the clip ... T.O.'s taking a more chill approach to this feud now.

They say it takes a bigger man. Terrell's 6'3" and Marvin's 6 foot even, so there ya go. Nice to see two men over 40 act like adults.

Selena Gomez Stuck In An Elevator In Paris

3/9/2016 7:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Selena Gomez got stuck in an elevator in Paris and sprung into survival mode without panicking ... which is another good reason to be stuck in an elevator with her.

Selena, who's in town for the tail end of Paris Fashion Week, posted a 19-second clip of the emergency. She can be heard telling everyone in the elevator that the talking will deplete them of oxygen ... while looking totally smoking hot!

The doors eventually were pried open ... by a dude inside the elevator with Selena. One of the better "Help, I'm Trapped In An Elevator!" episodes we've seen in a while.

Kim Kardashian Hey Bette Midler ... Take That Tree and Shove It!

3/8/2016 10:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0308-kim-bette-tmz-getty-01Bette Midler gifted Kim Kardashian with a tree years ago before turning Kim's Instagram nude into a punchline ... TMZ has learned. 

By now you know Kim took extreme exception to Bette's cyber-jab -- saying, "hey @BetteMidler I really didn't want to bring up how you sent me a gift awhile back trying to be a fake friend then come at me."

Now, we know ... that "gift" was a tree that Bette planted in Kim's honor as part of Bette's New York Restoration Project.

Bette dedicated one of the trees to Kim when she launched her MillionTreesNYC initiative in 2007 -- and even sent Kim a handwritten note. 

We're told Kim believed the gesture was a friendship branch ... until Bette mocked her on Twitter. 

As for Bette, she just fired back at Kim saying, "I never tried to fake friend you. Looks like anyone can take a selfie but not everyone can take a joke."

Kim Kardashian Naked Hatred For Fellow Celebs

3/8/2016 6:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0307-kim-k-instagram-01Kim Kardashian went on the counterattack Monday night after she was called on the carpet for posting a bangin' nude pic that turned out to be a year old.

Kim went in for the kill with Bette Midler, who tweeted earlier, "If Kim wants us to see a part of her we've never seen, she's gonna have to swallow the camera."

Kim's response ... "I really didn't want to bring up how you sent me a gift awhile back trying to be a fake friend then come at me #dejavu."

It didn't stop there. Chloe Moretz tweeted, "I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies."

Kim's response ... "Let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to Twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo."

And then there's Piers Morgan, who tweeted, "I know the old man's $50 million in debt, Kim -- but this is absurd. Want me to buy you some clothes?" 

Kim had some choice words for him, first, "Hey @piersmorgan never offer to buy a married woman clothes. thats on some ashley madison type s--." And get a load of her not-so-humble brag, "sorry I'm late to the party guys. I was busy cashing my 80 million video game check and transferring 53 million into our joint account." 

So no doubt ... the winners, Bette, Chloe and Piers. They got all up on Kim's twitter. 

0307-kim-k-instagram-02Kim posted this pic Monday night, and we're taking a wild guess but we think this one's also old.


Zoe Saldana Not Black Enough? Nina Simone Estate Lashes Out

3/3/2016 8:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0303-zoe-saldana-side-by-side-nina-GETTY-YOUTUBE-01The estate of legendary jazz and soul singer Nina Simone has no love for Zoe Saldana -- who's playing Nina in a biopic -- and sparked outrage over Zoe's skin color after the movie trailer debuted.

Nina's estate finally gave its two cents on Saldana getting the role, and it was not good. It's clear in the trailer that producers darkened Zoe's skin for the movie, "Nina" ... and that's pissing off fans, and clearly the estate too.

After Saldana simply tweeted a quote from Nina ... the estate fired back -- "please take Nina's name out of your mouth. For the rest of your life."


Simone fans have had equally harsh reactions to Saldana's casting. They're pissed about her prosthetic nose, and the darkened skin thing is really pissing people off because Nina stood for up for black empowerment and civil rights.

Critics think Viola Davis or Uzo Aduba would have been better picks. Saldana hasn't responded. The movie comes out next month.
