10/31/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

103014_ghost_adventures_launch A girl's family claims she became possessed by demons after visiting a house owned by "Ghost Adventures" star Zak Bagans ... and she had to be exorcised.

The house has had documented incidents of paranormal activity. As we first reported ... a family fled the home after claiming they were terrorized by demons.

Zak convinced different former residents to return to the home for a new documentary ... and as soon as they began filming, demonic activity surfaced. The mother claimed someone kicked her when no one was around. And there were other incidents as well.

A few days later, the daughter began having violent outbursts ... threatening to hurt herself and others. Zak says the girl's family witnessed her speaking in tongues ... exhibiting signs of demonic possession.

Zak claims they brought the girl to a Catholic priest, who performed an exorcism. He recorded the ritual on video.  Zak says the girl is now back to her old self.

The documentary was put on ice while everyone dealt with the daughter, and now Zak says he'll return to the house in December ... to finish the film.

Nik Wallenda

Grandma NOT Impressed

With Sunday's Death-Defying Tightrope Walk

EXCLUSIVE

1030_Nik-Wallenda_chicago_skyline_composite_2
Daredevil Nik Wallenda will flirt with death Sunday in Chicago -- traversing 2 buildings -- but it's still not enough to impress his grandma.

Nik will step on a high wire Sunday which will be attached to 2 skyscrapers -- 2 city blocks apart. It will be an uphill walk -- the equivalent of 8 stories, and Nik will be blindfolded for part of it.

It's not enough to wow or scare his 87-year-old Oma, who watched Nik practice this week. Oma herself was a performer in the Wallenda family -- her thing was hanging by her teeth on a high wire.

Nik tells us he spiced things up with a few tricks ... backwards blindfolding and kneeling on the wire. She still wasn't blown away.

Granny should know ... Nik will walk without a net or harness Sunday. It will air live at 7 PM ET on Discovery.

My Imaginary Friend?

EXCLUSIVE

Eric Balfour Imaginary FriendThis video exists in a magical world where imaginary friends are real -- and imaginary slavery is also a thing -- but it's still really cute to watch.

Our photog encountered "Six Feet Under" and "24" star Eric Balfour on the streets of Venice Thursday afternoon … when the topic turned to imaginary friends.

Balfour copped to having one as a kid -- a 30" tall Mexican named Carlito. After introducing us, Balfour and our photog discussed the recent trend of people selling their imaginary friends on eBay.

After a little coercing, Balfour agreed to put Carlito up for sale and the two (Eric and Carlito) even posed for an eBay photo. 

As if this whole ordeal couldn't get more ridiculous … our photog actually did post the listing on eBay, but it got taken down because apparently you cannot sell intangible things on the site.

When Carlito gets wind of all this, Balfour is going to have some explaining to do.

'Sex Toy' Christmas Tree

DEFLATED

Vandals Had It Up to There

breaking news

1018-giant-buttplug-deflated-TWITTER-01The giant butt-plug shaped Christmas tree in France was deflated early Saturday morning ... after a group of scoundrels pulled off a dastardly plan to take it down.

In case you missed it, a 24-foot tall statue called "Tree" was unveiled Thursday in the ritzy Place Vendome shopping area of Paris ... and people couldn't help pointing out what it actually looks like.

1017_tree art paris_getty
Turns out some Parisians are pissed about the statue ... and an unidentified group of vandals managed to cut the chords holding up "Tree" -- so the whole thing toppled over.

The call was made afterward to deflate the "butt-plug" tree.

It's unclear if it will go back up in the Place Vendome ... or be inserted somewhere else around town.

These are the cold, dead eyes belonging to the victim of a heinous faux sex crime ... perpetrated right inside a Walmart.

19-year-old Sean Johnson allegedly roamed the aisles Tuesday and picked his prey ... a brown stuffed horse. Cops say Johnson then pulled out his namesake and pressed it against the horse's chest.

THAT was just foreplay. Johnson then ferociously humped the horse -- making his deposit and then wrapped the animal in a comforter he took from a nearby aisle.

1016-johnson-mugshot-toy-horse
According to the Smoking Gun ... an employee saw the whole thing go down and alerted cops who subdued the perp across the street from the Florida super chain.

He was charged with indecent exposure and criminal mischief. 

This would never happen at Target ... too obvious, right?

NO POOP FOR YOU!

Co. Craps On Dung Burning

Slipknot Burning Camel Poop
Slipknot
's plan to stink up a music festival ... BY SETTING CAMEL DUNG ON FIRE ... just went down the toilet -- fire officials have officially pulled the plug.

The metal band had plans to fill drums with camel poop and oil ... then set them ablaze during its 3-day Knotfest Music Festival later this month in San Bernardino. The band's burning desire was for the stench to "infest your brain, body and clothes for days."

Naturally, county fire officials ain't having it -- but their beef isn't with the camel feces ... it's the burning oil ... which is illegal in Cali. Also, they say the odor of flaming feces could be considered a public nuisance. Ya think?

Bottom line -- the show will go on ... sans burning poo. A rep for Knotfest says they haven't given up yet ... they're looking for a safer way to get that camel s**t scent.

NFL player accused of attacking someone? Suspended.

Boxer accused of SHOOTING SOMEONE??  Well, you can fight for the title!!! 

At least, that's what happened last night when Jermain Taylor -- who won the IBF Middleweight title in Mississippi ... just 2 months after he was arrested for allegedly shooting his cousin. 

As we first reported, cops say Taylor FESSED UP to shooting his cousin during a domestic dispute in Arkansas back in August. 

But despite the fact he was arrested for 1st degree battery and aggravated assault -- the powers that be in the boxing world ALLOWED Taylor to get in the ring and fight for the title.

He won.

Michael Jackson's son could be the next great boxing prodigy -- because Floyd Mayweather says he is going to PERSONALLY train Prince Jackson ... now that he's apparently joined The Money Team. 

Floyd was PUMPED when he saw the pics of Prince rollin' around Calabasas this weekend in a truck covered in "The Money Team" decals -- and yesterday, Mayweather told us he can't wait to train the kid. 

"I haven't worked with him yet, but I look forward to working with him when I get back to Las Vegas," Mayweather told TMZ Sports.  

But Prince's uncle Jermaine Jackson says all is not as it appears ... telling TMZ Sports his nephew is NOT an official TMT member and only got into the TMT vehicle because he likes big trucks. 

Doesn't seem to matter to Floyd ... at this point, seems Prince is officially in the crew ... whether Jermaine likes it or not.

Amanda Bynes Attacks Fan
Amanda Bynes
lost it on one of her fans -- during a bizarre 24-hour stretch in NYC -- allegedly assaulting the woman who got too close in a nightclub.

Multiple sources tell TMZ ... Amanda showed up by herself to an event at the Gilded Lily nightclub Monday night in Chelsea. We're told she was dancing alone, wearing sunglasses and keeping to herself ... until random people started taking photos. 

At first, Amanda was just yelling at the fans ... but we're told she finally snapped on one woman who claims Bynes spun toward her violently, scratching her neck and arms. Despite the alleged attack ... the woman tells us she's still a fan and doesn't plan to press charges.

1007-sub-bynes-victim-tmzThen on Tuesday morning ... several Bloomingdale's shoppers tell us Amanda was limping around the department store for hours with just one shoe while mumbling incoherently.

1007-amanda-bynes-shoe-tmz-4-1
As we've reported, Bynes' family and friends have been extremely concerned, ... ever since her DUI arrest last month -- and fear something tragic is going to happen before she gets the help she obviously needs.

Beach Poachers Sue

We Didn't Steal Anything

It's The Media's Fault!

EXCLUSIVE

Beach Thieves Video
Two women caught in a viral video allegedly trying to steal beach equipment are now suing ... lamenting they've been dragged through the muddy sand by the media.

The video, which scored more than 7 million hits on YouTube, turned middle-aged sisters Kathleen Duffy and Linda Duffy Kelly into viral and infamous superstars.

The women claim in a new lawsuit ... Fox News painted them as thieves. One anchor called it an "attempted theft." Some of the other comments ... "caught stealing" and "caught red handed."

The sisters insist they thought the canopy was theirs ... there were lots that looked just like it on July 4th on Smyrna Beach in Florida. They were confronted by the owner ... who filmed the whole thing.

We called Fox ... so far no word back.
 

3-Boobed Woman

A FAKE!

Exclusive Details

0923-jasmine-tridevil-launch

The woman claiming to have 3 boobs is A FRAUD ... A FAKE ... and ironically what exposed her lie is a crime someone committed against her.

Jasmine Tridevil has been making the rounds, claiming she got plastic surgery to net her an additional boob.  

But we got a document from the Tampa International Airport Police Dept. describing a baggage theft. According to the doc ... someone stole a bunch of luggage off an American Airlines conveyor belt, including a black nylon roller bag.

Cops caught the thieves after IDing them with surveillance video. The black bag belonged to Tridevil, but before she got it back it was inventoried by police as part of the case against the crooks.

Guess what was inside the bag?  "A 3 breast prosthesis."
 
BTW ... she told cops the prosthesis was valued at $5K.

The boobs are perfect, but she's a little crooked.

TV Anchor Pervs Out

Let Me See Your 3 Breasts ... AGAIN

9/23/2014 6:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0923-three-boob-launch-01The woman who claims to have had a third breast surgically implanted on her body showed off the goods ... but not nearly long enough for the TV anchor who was interviewing her.

Jasmine Tridevil told WTSP in Tampa (of course she's from Tampa) she had the surgery to become famous ... and recorded it for a self-produced reality show she hopes to sell. 

In a moment that will go down in journalism history, the TV guy asked Tridevil for a look at the third breast and when she only flashed it (covered up, of course) for just a moment, the reporter asked, "Can you hold it up a little longer so we can get a better shot of it?" She refused.
