UFC Ref Herb Dean Fires Back At Michael Rapaport ... Don't Tell Me How To Do My Job

1/5/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Rapaport just got counted out by UFC ref Herb Dean ... who says the actor should stay in his lane when talking MMA ... and not tell the veteran ref how to do a job Rapaport knows nothing about.

Rapaport went hard on Dean about how he handled the Rousey/Nunes ass kicking ... saying on FS1's "Undisputed" that Dean was too quick to stop the fight because of Ronda's "white girl privilege."

Translation -- Dean stopped the fight early to protect the blonde-haired, blue-eyed Rousey ... something he wouldn't have done for Nunes or any other non-white female fighter.

But Dean says that's a bunch of crap -- telling our guy MR doesn't have a CLUE what goes on in the Octagon and should keep his trap shut.

BTW, Dean was training at Fight Academy of Pasadena with former MMA star Savant "Black Superman" Young ... who gave us an exclusive demo of how Ronda could've avoided that ass kicking.

T.J. Miller Sued You Got High on 'Laughing Gas' ... and Beat the Crap Outta Me

12/31/2016 12:51 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1231-tj-miller-tmz"Silicon Valley" star T.J. Miller became violent and belligerent after inhaling a bunch of "laughing gas" ... so says the private driver now suing him, but Miller says it's a brazen extortion attempt.

Wilson Deon Thomas III claims T.J. hired him back on December 8th to drive him around for the day but things immediately went south when T.J. allegedly started inhaling nitrous oxide -- aka "laughing gas" -- out of Whip-It refills.

According to the docs ... T.J. allegedly went through his entire Whip-It stash and had to call his assistant to bring him more. Throughout the ride, T.J. allegedly complained he spent big money supporting Hillary Clinton and said he was pissed she lost the election.

Wilson says T.J. became increasingly erratic and accused him of being a Donald Trump supporter. During the final drop off, Wilson claims that, out of nowhere, T.J. struck him on the right side of his head and shoulder -- all while still driving.

Wilson says he slammed on the breaks so hard he suffered a violent whiplash. He's suing for medical expenses and other damages. We broke the story ... T.J. was arrested for the alleged assault.

T.J.'s attorney tells TMZ ... Wilson's lawsuit is a pure money grab, adding, "From his first opportunity he has attempted to extort my client TJ Miller by creating a fictitious set of facts and threatening to go public unless he received money. Mr. Thomas is no stranger to the legal system and is all too familiar with filing bogus lawsuits to extort people."

Someone at the Joe Louis Arena apparently told Trey his set was going too long, but he wasn't near ready to leave. In fact, he dared them to cut his mic, promising retaliation if they did.

Well, they did and he did. Trey started destroying everything in sight, hurling objects in the air. A cop who tried subduing him was hurt after being struck by debris.

Trey was arrested for resisting arrest and malicious destruction of property.

1219-charlie-puth-bella-thorne-instar-images-4Bella Thorne and Charlie Puth were not meant to last ... mostly because she's allegedly still dating Tyler Posey.

EXCLUSIVE

1221-blac-chyna-tmz-02Blac Chyna is a liar and Adidas NEVER made a single overture to her about fronting a shoe line ... so claims Adidas.

Sources connected with Adidas tell TMZ, "This is 1 trillion percent false at level. She has never been on our radar."

Chyna's lawyer had told TMZ Adidas offered his client $250k for a line of shoes, but claimed the amount was woefully inadequate.

Adidas is calling BS and says there has not been a single discussion with Chyna, her lawyer or anyone else about using her to hawk shoes.

Chyna's lawyer tells us, "I have absolutely no comment."

Ashley Madison NY Settles 'Full Delete' Case for $17.5 Mil

12/20/2016 4:52 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1220-ashley-madison-gettyAshleyMadison.com ripped off married people who no longer need its extramarital services -- according to NY State, which just got a hefty settlement from the website. 

State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman went after against AshleyMadison.com, saying it deceives customers with a $19 charge for what it calls the "full delete." It's nothing like the Full Monty.

AM offered the option for departing users who want to make sure their profiles are scrubbed from the site, including all messages and photos. But the state AG called out the site for retaining all that info for up to 12 months and sometimes longer.

Ashley reached a settlement deal with NY and 11 other states, plus Washington D.C. ... which calls for it to fork $1.65 million, of which $81k goes to the Empire State. The court cut Ashley Madison a break, suspending the other nearly $16 mil ... because the company's hurting financially.

AM also has to stop deceptive practices such as creating fake profiles to lure users ... and has to implement stronger security measures.

Young Thug's fans need to hit the gym -- 'cause they failed miserably when the rapper tried to crowd surf ... but ended up falling upside down in the chaos.

Thug and 21 Savage had the crowd at Terminal 5 jumping Sunday night, but things took a turn when Thug hurled himself into the sea of fans ... no doubt, expecting them to have his back.

Here's the thing ... Thug can't be more than a buck 60, dripping wet, but you gotta see how the crowd struggled, and eventually just dropped him on his head. It took several minutes, but security eventually dove in too, and rescued him.

This was the last show of the tour, and Thug went out with a bang. On his head.

Alice Eve Neighbors Pissed Over Illegal Fence

12/19/2016 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1212-alice-eve-TMZ-01'Star Trek' actress Alice Eve is now getting the wrath of a furious neighbor who claims she illegally built a fence on city property.

The Hollywood Hills dispute is all over a 6 foot fence installed back in April at the edge of her property. Neighbors were outraged because the fence is blocking off a wildlife corridor, which is NOT part of Alice's property. One angry neighbor filed a complaint with the city.

City officials tell us the beef is legit ... the fence is on government property.

1213-alice-eve-tmz-03The city tells us Alice was put on notice in July for the violation, and there was a hearing on the matter in September. We're told Alice was not there. We reached out to her camp, but no word back yet.

As of Friday, the fence is still standing. The neighbor who dimed her out to the city is pissed and wants it torn down ASAP. He's clearly not a fan of her work in "She's Out of My League."

He might be alone on that one.

FOX Anchor Scooter Wipe Out, Live! TV and Face Injured

12/13/2016 2:22 PM PST

Check out the Christmas gift that's a guaranteed SMASH hit -- if you let FOX 11's Lisa Breckenridge drive it, anyway.

The KTTV anchor was part of a "Good Day L.A." segment Tuesday about the hottest gift ideas for the season, and she just couldn't resist hopping on a scooter that goes up to 25 mph.

Looks like she got up to at least 20 mph before trashing some pricey studio equipment -- and possibly her face -- on live TV.

Actually, Lisa looked okay in the back of an ambulance afterward. All's well that ends with a hot firefighter, right?

Amber Heard Domestic Abuse Letter Is Risky Biz for Depp Agreement

12/12/2016 3:52 PM PST

1212-amber-heard-abuse-letter-DOC-LAUNCH-FACEBOOK-01Amber Heard is speaking out about domestic violence in a letter describing the pain victims go through, and in the process ... she might be walking a thin line with Johnny Depp's lawyers.

Amber wrote a letter for the December issue of the fashion magazine Porter. She never mentions Johnny Depp, but it's not hard to connect the dots when she writes, "I never felt anyone would or could rescue me, so naturally I resented the label of victim."

Amber did a similar thing last month when she sat down for a PSA on domestic abuse. The issue is her divorce settlement includes a confidentiality clause prohibiting her from talking about Johnny.

As we reported, he's agreed to pay her $6.8 mil, and Amber says she'll donate the money to charities. The deal could be off if Depp's team thinks she's in violation.

EXCLUSIVE

1209-tj-miller-tmz-03"Silicon Valley" star T.J. Miller got arrested in Hollywood for allegedly making his Uber driver see stars, and not the good rating kind either.

Law enforcement sources tell us T.J.'s driver picked him up from the GQ Men of the Year party early Friday morning, and during the ride they got into an argument about President-elect Donald Trump. The driver claims T.J. slapped him in the head when they got to his house.

We're told the driver got pissed and decided to make a citizen's arrest. He called cops who showed up and took T.J. into custody. We're told the driver did NOT have any visible injuries, and it's he said/he said at this point.

T.J. was released without having to post bail. Our sources say he seemed intoxicated.

1209-tj-miller-gq-party-GETTY-01Makes sense ... he was in a festive mood Thursday night. Besides the GQ party at Chateau Marmont, T.J. also went to the Vulture Awards bash at Sunset Tower.

Miller's movie, "Office Christmas Party," opens today. #GreatTiming 

1D's Niall Horan The Pink Slip?

12/8/2016 8:06 AM PST

Niall Horan looked like he knew he had just let a giant cat out of the bag leaving one of L.A.'s most expensive baby stores with a basket of pink stuff. 

Niall's old 1D bandmate, Liam Payne, and his partner, Cheryl Cole, are reportedly expecting in early 2017, but haven't revealed the sex of their baby. Naturally 1D fans jumped to the conclusion the girly stuff Niall's toting is for the couple. 

Of course, it's possible the basket is for someone else ... after all, it is the holidays and Liam and Cheryl are hunkered down in London.
