Trump Star Vandal Cops Block Vegas Protest On Trump's Turf

11/8/2016 10:11 AM PST

1108-james-otis-trump-international-las-vegas-tmz-gettyThe guy who took a pickax to Donald Trump's Hollywood star planned to dangle a giant American flag out the window of a Trump Hotel penthouse ... until cops thwarted his plot.

We're told James Otis was intercepted by Vegas police over the weekend when he tried to pull a Wile E. Coyote scheme at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas ... at $2,300 per night. Otis dyed his hair, checked in under his middle name, brought some hardware, a glass cutter, a drill and a 10 foot American flag. 

Otis tells us he planned to barricade himself in the room, cut the window, hang the flag outside from the 64th floor -- all in protest of Trump. It never happened ... police busted in Saturday and escorted him from the building. 

Law enforcement sources tell us the hotel called police to bounce Otis, so it appears he didn't really fool staffers. He's now been banned from all Trump properties ... for good.

Mariah Carey, James Packer Craziest Prenup Ever!!!

11/5/2016 1:00 AM PDT

1102-mariah-carey-james-packer-tmz-02Mariah Carey and James Packer were negotiating one of the most insane prenups we've ever seen ... and it reads like she's a mail order bride with lots of strings attached.

Before we tell you what it says, we know the negotiations blew up. We're told Mariah's people got the draft from Packer's exec, Robert Rankin, and rejected it as "tacky and insulting."

Among the conditions ... "Except for gifts between them for their engagement, wedding or on birthdays and anniversaries, no item of jewelry and/or personal adornment costing over $250,000 will be deemed a gift unless accompanied by, or promptly followed by, a writing specifically stating 'This is my gift to you.'"

It goes on ... James agreed to purchase certain clothing for Mariah but there's a blank space for them to agree upon a maximum amount he has to shell out. It states ... the clothing is not to be used for business or performing and "Mariah shall provide all clothing for her children."

And there's this ... "James shall cause a credit card(s) to be issued for use by Mariah and staff ... the amount of expenses ... shall not exceed US $____ per calendar month." The amount was blank.

The prenup continues ... "James shall provide the use of one private aircraft, of his selection, for Mariah's personal use, or that of her children and nannies only when James, in his sole discretion, determines it is appropriate to do so."

The central reason why negotiations blew up ... the provision that said "James will pay Mariah, and Mariah shall accept, $6 million dollars per year for each full year of marriage, up to a maximum of $30 million ... adjusted pro-rata on a weekly basis [$151,385 per week]."

Our Mariah sources say she rejected the dollar amount and claims James agreed to a $50 million lump sum if the marriage failed.

So much for love.

James Otis, the man who took a pickax to Donald Trump's star, made a new enemy Friday ... the amazing Spider-Man!

This vid is hilarious -- one of those Hollywood Blvd street performers fully jacked the spotlight from Otis, who was trying to discuss his lawsuit against Trump. But street Spidey was just the start of Otis' trouble -- a few more characters, not all in costume, grabbed his mic.

THIS is how ya do a news conference! 


Bob Odenkirk The Cubs Curse Is Dead ... And It Died Long Ago

10/31/2016 2:47 PM PDT

There's at least one Cubs fan who is still holding out hope the team isn't cursed forever ... Bob Odenkirk ... who says the mystical "Billy Goat Curse" that hung over the franchise is long dead.

We got Bob out in L.A. and, since he's a die-hard Cubbies fan, we wanted to know if he thought there was bad juju still hanging over the squad.

That woulda seemed like a silly question a week ago ... but the team's down 3-2 in the World Series after losing two at home ... and some fans who previously believed are letting old fears creep back in.

Check out the clip -- Bob says those people need not worry ... telling our camera guys the curse that dogged the squad has been gone for a long time now.

NOTE: Bob says not to be worried about the curse ... now the Cleveland Indians ... that's a different story altogether.

Miranda Kerr Intruder Delivered Rambling Love Note Before Attack

10/30/2016 12:50 AM PDT

1028-miranda-kerr-tmz-02The intruder who was shot at Miranda Kerr's home left a bizarre calling card/love letter at the house 2 days before his bloody confrontation ... TMZ has learned.

Our law enforcement sources tell us Shaun Haywood hand-delivered a letter to an employee at Kerr's home, and it was filled with nonsensical phrases. We're told the only thing that was clear from the "jibber-jabber" was Haywood had a thing for Miranda.

The employee who received the letter alerted security, which was immediately increased at the home ... leading up to the bloody confrontation with Kerr's security guard. Our sources say Haywood told cops he believed he was a spirit traveling for thousands of years, and wanted to meet Miranda because she's also a free spirit.

A judge has since issued a protective order for Haywood to stay away from Miranda. He won't be a problem for now, as he's still in police custody. He's been charged with 3 felonies.

1005-mma-josh-samman-gettyupdate_graphic_red_bar8:59 AM PT -- The Broward County Coroner has now confirmed Samman passed away at 7:20 AM on Wednesday. 

As for cause of death, the coroner told us, "It would be hard to suggest anything other than drugs" based on the conditions in which Samman and Kirkingburg were found. 

An autopsy is scheduled -- but there could be delays due to the hurricane in the region. update-grey-gray-barUFC middleweight Josh Samman -- who appeared on "The Ultimate Fighter" -- has died after spending several days in a coma ... this according to his 'Ultimate Fighter' castmate Gilbert Jamal Smith. 

Samman was found unresponsive early Friday morning at an apartment in South Florida. His roommate, Troy Kirkingburg -- an MMA announcer -- was pronounced dead at the scene. 

It's unclear how the two men died. 

There were rumblings that heroin played a role -- but Samman's mother came out and said doctors found no traces of the drug in his system. There were also no signs of foul play according to reports.

Samman was 28.

0916-harambe-weed-budder-01Harambe's legacy lives on ... thanks to potheads.

The gorilla that was shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo back in May now has his own marijuana wax -- Harambe OG.

The wax -- a THC concentrate similar to hash -- was created for Natural Remedies, a Colorado dispensary.

The lab manager who made the wax tells us he was blanking on a name, but became inspired by the products in the mix -- Gorilla Glue #4, Deadhead OG and Angel OG. 

Gorilla + Dead + Angel. Ergo, Harambe.

Harambe OG was just released this week, and it's already selling like hotcakes.



'Grease' Conspiracy Rumor Killed Sandy Was Alive, Creator Says

9/9/2016 7:04 AM PDT

0909-john-travolta-olivia-newton-john-grease-getty-01Sorry "Grease" fans ... Sandy didn't die while Danny tried saving her and the whole film ISN'T her vivid coma fantasy ... according to one of the creators.

Jim Jacobs, who wrote the original book and musical with Warren Casey, is shooting down the conspiracy Sandy was dead during the whole film. He tells TMZ whoever made up the theory must have been on acid.

A theory's been flying around that Danny hadn't been able to save Sandy after someone linked the "Summer Nights" lyrics, "I saved her life she nearly drowned," with the final scene in the movie where the two take off in a flying car.

Jacobs says, although there are differences between the book and the movie, one thing is certain ... Sandy was very much alive and the real phenomenon is that "Grease" is still popular over 40 years later.

Director Paul Verhoeven is proof inspiration strikes in species everywhere -- like dog nipples for the 8-breasted hooker he wanted for "Total Recall."

Wes Scantlin Gives Bomb Squad Major Headache

8/23/2016 9:37 AM PDT

0823-wes-scantlin-TMZ-01Wes Scantlin scared the crap out of his neighbors by pulling a Wile E. Coyote plot that made his car look like a bomb ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the Puddle of Mudd singer took matters into his own hands after his car was broken into multiple times. We're told the scheme -- involving 2 vehicles -- was pretty basic: a radio under one car with wires leading into the motor, and the second car had wires from a door to the gas tank.

Rather than scare off crooks, it terrified neighbors who called cops. The bomb squad came out and evacuated 4 surrounding buildings in the WeHo neighborhood.

As you can imagine, cops laid into Wes for the stupid idea, which drained valuable police resources.

He wasn't charged with a crime, for once. He needs to go buy The Club.
