Robert De Niro

Tells Art School Grads

You're F*****'

5/23/2015 7:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robert De Niro inspired some very talented art school graduates to dive into the world of anti-depressants, telling them they are "opening a door to a lifetime of rejection."

It's the greatest commencement speech of the season for sure ... De Niro gave Tisch School of the 
Arts grads a glimpse into their future with some hilarious comparisons, telling them medical students will get jobs, lawyers will probably also get jobs and if they don't who cares ... they're lawyers!

But De Niro did offer sound advice, in the form of Valium and Vicodin.

He rules.

EXCLUSIVE

Model Holly Meowy wants to re-cast the image of cat owners, but her plan went seriously awry when the cat she was clutching took a leak all over her getup.

Holly used to be a wrestling diva for WOW, but she's always been a cat lady.  We found her Saturday at Pussy and Pooch in Bev Hills, a "pet lifestyle" center.

You gotta watch the video.  As she describes her dream that people think of sexy when they think of cat owners, our photog sees the stream running down her stockings.

Urine for a treat. 

Metallica's Lars Ulrich

Thong-Gate Mystery Solved!!!

5/12/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0512-lars-ulrich-twitterMetallica fans can rest easy -- the Lars Ulrich underwear saga known as thong-gate is finally coming to an end and the bare-assed truth is ... the thong is all an illusion.

For any non-headbangers out there -- the Mighty Met drummer was photographed fluttering away on his hi-hat and snares at Vegas’ Rock in Rio concert over the weekend  ... and it sure looked like he was sporting a sexy red thong while he did it. 

Turns out Ulrich, 51, was just a victim of butt shadow. Yes, butt shadow – it’s a real thing, that can strike anyone.

A rep for Ulrich tells us what appears to be red undies in the viral pic is just the shadow of Lars' shirt -- created by stage lighting. In fact, Lars is actually going commando in the shot, so what you're really staring intently at ... is his ass crack.

Forget oysters ... did you know CHICKEN WINGS could also serve as an aphrodisiac?!??

Well, according to UFC superstar Ronda Rousey ... it's all about HOW you stuff 'em in your mouth. 

As you may know, Rousey is a bit of a wing-aholic ... she eats plate loads of the stuff after every one of her fights.

So, when our photog Adam told her he finds female wing eaters super hot, Rousey took it even further ... giving a step-by-step guide on the sexiest way a person can take down poultry parts. 

It's hot ... and it ain't just the buffalo sauce talkin'.

Alleged Stalker Not Crazy

... Charged With 3 Felonies

update_graphic_red_bar4:10 PM PT -- Ayeb plead not guilty and the judge put a protective order in place ... for 3 YEARS. She remains in custody as of Friday afternoon.update_grey_gray_bar

Chris Brown's naked intruder is getting nailed with 3 felonies in court ... but, interestingly ... she is NOT being held on a 5150.

Amira Ayeb is appearing before a judge for the first time since getting arrested in Brown's home on Wednesday night. She will be charged with stalking, vandalism and burglary.

Ayeb allegedly spray painted "MRS. BROWN" all over Chris' expensive rides -- and also, "I LOVE YOU" on his kitchen counter. They say she broke into the house on Saturday, May 2 -- so, she allegedly made herself very at home. 

Prosecutors will ask for her bail to be set at $220,000. 

TMZ broke the story -- Ayeb is an aspiring singer from Tunisia, and refers to herself as Mrs. Brown in several online postings.

You'd think a psychiatric hold might be in order -- considering the nature of the alleged crime -- but police did NOT place her on a 5150 ... and so far the defense hasn't raised her mental health as an issue.

Lou Gehrig

Game-Used Bat Found

Family Used for Home Protection

Talk about hitting the jackpot ... a NY family learned a baseball bat specifically kept in the house for beating off intruders ... IS WORTH A FORTUNE ... 'cause it was used by Lou Gehrig

The story is pretty crazy ... the family says they came into possession of the bat decades ago when a family member of a former NY Yankees groundskeeper gave it to them as a gift. 

Clearly, they thought it was just a regular bat ... and kept it behind the front door of the home for "protection" ... and it stayed there for 30 years. 

That is, until someone realized it wasn't just an old piece of wood ... but a 1929-31 Lou Gehrig game-used bat ... one of the few Gehrig bats known to exist. 

Now, the bat is hitting the auction block through Love of the Game Auctions ... and we're told the opening bid will be $20,000. 

Pretty cool, right?

Chris Brown
came home Wednesday night to find a naked woman in his bed ... problem is he had no idea who she was ... so he called the cops and they carted her away. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... CB returned to his home in Agoura Hills, CA with his security team around 9:00 PM when he found a woman's clothes in the foyer and "I LOVE YOU" spray painted on the kitchen counter.

We're told when Chris and his team went to investigate, they found the unknown/unclothed woman in his bed. Chris called the cops, who came and cuffed the woman and took her to the station, where she was booked for felony burglary and felony vandalism.

Cops believe the woman -- a 21-year-old female -- had lingered there for a while -- police found dishes in the sink and discarded food. Chris had been in Las Vegas for the past few days.

Our sources say the woman also vandalized Chris' silver Rolls-Royce and his black Range Rover by spray painting "MRS. BROWN" on them.

Breaking and entering is one thing ... but why you gotta go and mess with the man's ride?

Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao is the main event but even the under, under ... UNDER card has some big names -- in the little boxing world, anyway. 

"Mini Pretty Boy Money" and "Mini Pacman" went at it in the MGM Grand lobby on Monday ... not far from the full-size ring the resort is using to promote Saturday's huge bout.

You gotta see the stare down between the fighters -- absolutely menacing ... said no one.

But get this ... the ultra flyweights will really fight on Saturday night at Beacher's Madhouse and tickets ain't cheap. For $1500 you get to see Floyd and Manny on closed circuit, and then after that ... Mini Money and Mini Pac will go at it live. 

Our money's on a TKO (Tiny Knock Out).

Manny Pacquiao ran away from home at the age of 12 ... when he caught his father eating his pet dog ... this according to his trainer Freddie Roach. 

Roach was talking to Yahoo! Sports about how the boxer's family struggled with poverty in the Philippines when he was a child -- and apparently, things were so tough ... Manny's father cooked the family dog for food. 

When Manny realized what had happened, he ran away from home -- and began to live on the streets.

"He slept in a cardboard box. He fought his way through all this, turned pro at 14, and look at the man he is today," Roach said. 

BTW -- Manny has a new dog named Pacman ... and NO ONE is allowed to eat it.  

Mila Kunis

That Ukrainian Chick's Pollo Loco!!!

4/22/2015 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mila Kunis is calling chickens**t on the Ukrainian woman who claims the actress stole her beloved chicken, Doggie, a quarter century ago back in the old country.

With a little prompting from Ashton Kutcher, Mila says she was "devastated," and "weeping" after finding out Kristina Karo was suing her for $5,000 for emotional distress and therapy bills.

Mila and Ashton hilariously question the timing ... Karo is filing suit as she tries to hawk a music video.

For her part, Mila's contemplating a countersuit because the music video 'burned her eyes and hurt her body.'

If the judge would make the countersuit a class action, we'll gladly join.

By the way ... you should check out Karo on TMZ Live, unless you're chicken.

Mila Kunis Sued

You Stole My Chicken ...

So Cluck You!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0421-mila-kunis-kristina-doggie-karo-getty-instagram-01Mila Kunis has nice breasts ... problem is, she stole them along with other chicken parts, this according to a new lawsuit filed by a woman who claims to have been her best Ukrainian friend.

Kristina Karo claims 25 years ago she was in first grade with Mila in the Ukraine and they were inseparable. But Kristina says Mila had chicken envy -- specifically a chicken which answered to the name Doggie. Kristina alleges in her lawsuit she loved Doggie like a dog, and so did Mila, who would come to her house and play with the little clucker.

But one day Doggie disappeared, and Kristina says Mila confessed that she stole it, saying, "Kristina, you can have any other chicken as a pet, you have a whole chicken farm."

Kristina says in her lawsuit she became an emotional wreck and went into therapy.  

Years passed, Mila moved to L.A. and became a big star. Kristina also eventually moved to L.A. to pursue a singing career. But the proximity brought back all the bad memories, and Kristina says the visions of Doggie being stolen by her former best friend threw her right back into therapy.

Kristina now needs shrink money, and a little extra for all the emotional distress ... in all, $5k.

And Kristina says Mila's conduct has prevented her from pursuing the American dream.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of a happy meal.

Sofia Vergara

I'm Not Having Nick's Baby

But I'm Not Destroying the Embryo

4/18/2015 7:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0418-sofia-vegara-nick-loeb-tmz-01Sofia Vergara had to make a tricky decision ... there's a fertilized egg sitting around that could produce a baby she doesn't want, but she doesn't want to anger  the "right to life" people by destroying it.

As TMZ reported, Sofia and then fiance Nick Loeb planned on having a baby together, which resulted in a fertilized egg being stored at a Beverly Hills reproductive facility.  Nick has filed a lawsuit, saying Sophia wants to destroy the embryo, but he wants the kid.

Sofia's lawyer told People, "Vergara has never suggested that she wished to have the embryos destroyed," adding, "She has always maintained that they be kept frozen."

It seems strange on the surface.  If she doesn't want the baby, why not destroy the embryo?

Sources close to Sofia tell TMZ, there is no way this baby will be born.  Sofia wants nothing to do with Nick and is about to marry Joe Manganiello.  The problem ... she doesn't want to piss off a lot of her fan base, which believes life is created at conception.

So we're told Sofia's solution is right in the contract, which says both parties have to agree to have the baby, and both sides have to agree to destroy the embryo.  She will agree to neither, which means the baby will not be born.

Ex-Fiance Wants to Have Her Baby

... Without Her

breaking news

0415-nick-sophia-tmz-02

Sofia Vergara's ex-fiance is suing her to prevent the actress from destroying the fertilized eggs they created when they were a couple because he still wants to have her baby.

It's a bizarre lawsuit. Nick Loeb claims he and Sofia made a contract back in November 2013 where they agreed to attempt to have children by means of in vitro fertilization. Her eggs were fertilized by his sperm and then frozen and kept at a Beverly Hills facility. 

Nick claims Sofia now wants to destroy the eggs because they broke up, but he says he has the right to go forward because both parties have not agreed in writing to destroy the eggs. 

Here's what's weird. Nick claims in the lawsuit, she physically abused him on 4 separate occasions, punching him in the face twice, kicked him and threw her phone at his head.  And he claims she repeatedly berated him. If that's the case, it seems a little strange he wants a kid with her DNA.

In the documents, first reported by In Touch, Nick makes it clear he wants a child. 

Clearly Sofia has moved on. She's engaged to Joe Manganiello and is certainly done with Nick.
