Tom Sizemore Facing 3 Years in GF Beating Case

8/31/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0830-tom-sizemore-tmz-01Tom Sizemore just got hit with 3 charges for allegedly beating up his girlfriend, and it could mean a nice stretch in jail for him.

We've learned the L.A. City Attorney charged Sizemore with domestic violence, battery and terrorist threats. TMZ broke the story ... the actor got busted after his gf accused him of hitting her in the head and face during an argument.

If convicted on all counts, he faces a maximum sentence of 3 years in jail.

The domestic violence arrest was the last straw for Sizemore's bosses on the TV show "Shooter" -- he got canned a few weeks later.

Breaking News

0830-ishmael-zamora-getty-01Baylor sophomore receiver Ishmael Zamora has been handed a 3 game suspension, community service, and counseling after an animal abuse incident in June ... TMZ Sports has learned.

"Our football program does not condone this behavior by anyone," Baylor interim Head Coach Jim Grobe said. "We are deeply saddened by it and have worked together with the University to hold Ishmael accountable for his actions."

Along with the suspension, Zamora "must undergo counseling and must relinquish the dog to an animal-friendly home," according to a statement released by Baylor.

A gruesome video showing the incident surfaced on the internet earlier this month, sparking outrage from animal rights group PETA.

0823-sub-ishmael-zamora-video-5"We have received communications about this incident from many passionate individuals over the past 10 days, and I am aware of their concerns," Grobe said.

"Our goal is for this discipline to be educational and restorative, and I believe that we have taken corrective measures to help Ishmael learn from his actions and better understand the behavior we demand of all students at the University."

Ishmael accepts the punishment, and vows that the incident "will never, ever, happen again."

"I truly love my dog, however, I know that my actions showed differently and I know that I made a big mistake."

update_graphic_red_bar

9:40 AM PT -- Police say they are still trying to make contact with Chris.

9:20 AM PT -- Chris is finally awake and posting videos. He's pissed about the police presence at his house and feels he's being harassed. He even dropped a "F*** tha police!"

The cops are still outside.

8:45 AM PT -- We've learned the SWAT team is on its way to Chris' home and the LAPD is in the process of obtaining a search warrant. We're told cops want to see if a gun matching the description from the woman is in the house. As of now, Chris has not left his residence.

7:55 AM PT -- TMZ has learned Chris was in the house with several friends, including Ray J. They were talking and at one point Ray was getting a tattoo when some "uninvited guests" appeared inside the house and were asked to leave.

At that point, the story gets murky. The guests included a man who was invited, and two women who were not -- one of the women who'd been asked to leave is the one who made the police report, claiming Brown pulled the gun on her. Someone inside the house insists Chris was asleep the whole time.

At some point Ray J left the house and when he got to the base of the driveway, police handcuffed him and seized his BMW. They checked his ID, uncuffed him and let him go, but kept his car as evidence. He Ubered home. 

0830-sub-aerial-chris-brown-fox11-02At the time of this post, Chris is still in the house. He never left. Police are knocking on the door, but no one inside is responding.

We don't know what police will do if he tries to leave.update_grey_gray_barChris Brown is a suspect in a criminal assault investigation after a woman called 911 and told cops ... he threatened her with a gun ... TMZ has learned.

The woman called 911 and police responded and took a report.

Ray J to Kanye West You're a Shameless Hypocrite

8/30/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829-ray-j-kanye-west-TMZ-01Kanye West is a hypocrite for embracing his wife's sex tape now that it suits his purposes, after blasting Ray J for daring to write a song about the famous video ... at least that's what Ray has been telling his crew.

We're told Ray is livid that Kanye rhapsodized about the sex tape during the VMAs ... even giving him a shout-out. You'll recall after Ray J dropped "I Hit it First," Kanye called him "Brandy's little sister" and threw in "lame" for bad measure.

Ray J can't do anything about his cameo in the "Famous" video, but he's not happy about it ... and it has nothing to do with shame over the sex tape. He just feels Kanye is two-faced for turning his nose up at the tape but then embracing it to make a buck.

We're told Ray is also pissed that Kim trashed him after he released "I Hit it First," but then grinned ear to ear at the VMAs when Kanye referred to the sexual tryst that made her untold millions of bucks.

Steve-O My Ankle's in Pieces After Porta Potty Crash

8/29/2016 9:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Steve-O came out on the losing end of a run-in with a wooden porta potty ... and by losing we mean his ankle is shattered in THREE places, and the video is brutal.

We got this video of Steve-O trying to pull the insane stunt Sunday in San Diego -- he perched himself, with a skateboard, on top of the porta potty ... then pro skating legend Danny Way drove a car underneath him, shattering the poop shed.  

He even got Tony Hawk to record the whole thing ... and you gotta see how it went down.

In a word -- BAD. Steve dislocated and broke his right ankle. He says doctors set it in a temporary cast, and once the swelling goes down ... he'll need surgery to put some hardware in there. For good measure, he broke his heel in his left foot too.  

BTW ... no pain pills for Steve since he's a recovering addict.

Oscars Prez Cheryl Isaacs 'Birth of a Nation' Too Important To Judge by Director's Past

8/25/2016 3:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"The Birth of a Nation" is a movie every American absolutely needs to see -- regardless of star and director Nate Parker's old rape trial ... at least that's how the Oscars honcho sees it. 

Cheryl Boone Isaacs, Prez of the Motion Picture Academy, talked to us Thursday about the potential backlash. The American Film Institute canceled a screening of the movie this week, and Parker's come under fire since details of the 2001 trial were released.

Parker was acquitted, but Isaacs doesn't think moviegoers should be concerned with that anyway. It's a strong point of view, considering Isaacs' gender, and her position in the Academy ... which has been skewered for a lack of diversity in nominated films.

Ryan Lochte Phelps Got 6-Month Suspension ... And He Could Have Killed Someone

8/24/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819-four-us-swimmers-ryan-lochte-rio-gunnar-bentz-jack-conger-jimmy-feigen-GETTY-02Ryan Lochte is going to get punished by the USOC ... but sources connected with the 4 swimmers don't think it's fair for the organization to annihilate them to appease those who are out for blood.

Lochte's lawyer, Jeff Ostrow, tells TMZ he has faith in the USOC and that the organization will punish Lochte in a manner that matches his conduct during the drunken Brazilian escapade. Ostrow would not say more.

Michael Phelps' punishment for his 2 DUIs is unquestionably relevant. The reality is ... but for the grace of God, Phelps could have killed an innocent person while driving drunk. After his second DUI in 2014, the USOC imposed a 6-month suspension.

The org. did not strip Phelps of his medals or keep him from competing in the 2016 Olympics.

As for Lochte and crew, they were drunk as well, but none got behind the wheel. Our sources say worst-case scenario ... Lochte damaged a sign outside a gas station bathroom and peed on the grass.

As for the "lies" -- our sources are adamant ... he and the other swimmers were taken out of a cab at gunpoint and ordered to turn over hundreds of dollars ... classic robbery. The sources acknowledge the swimmers were deceptive by implying they were pulled over in a moving cab.

Bottom line ... sources connected with the 4 swimmers say a 6-month suspension would be harsh given Phelps' punishment, but could still be justified. Anything more, they say, is just vengeance to appease the media and the public.

Wes Scantlin Gives Bomb Squad Major Headache

8/23/2016 9:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

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.

Conrad Hilton Sued Vomit-Covered Head-On Car Wreck

8/22/2016 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0804_conrad-hilton_tmzConrad Hilton smashed his daddy's Range Rover head-on into another woman -- just a few hours after he dodged jail time for another high-speed wreck ... according to a new lawsuit.

Kelly Auld says Paris Hilton's troubled little bro was driving erratically in the white Range and drifting into her lane. In the docs, she says he accelerated, and clipped another car before smashing into hers.

Auld says in the seconds before the crash, she saw Hilton looking dazed with BOTH hands above his head as he careened toward her. In the suit, she says witnesses saw Conrad throw a bong out his window, and he was covered in vomit when he got out of the SUV.

The vehicle was registered to Hilton & Hyland, Rick Hilton's real estate firm ... according to the suit.

She's done her research too -- Auld points out Conrad entered a court-ordered drug treatment program last year, and had been prohibited from driving.

And get this ... she says the accident happened May 19 -- the day after Conrad struck a plea deal for a 100 mph wreck near Palm Springs.

MLB Star Edwin Encarnacion Sued for Battery ... STD Allegations

8/22/2016 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0822_edwin-encarnacion_gettyToronto Blue Jays superstar Edwin Encarnacion has been sued by a woman who claims he knowingly gave her multiple STDs during a romantic weekend ... TMZ Sports has learned.

 The woman behind the lawsuit claims she's a 24-year-old family friend of the MLB star who first met him in 2013. 

In her lawsuit, the woman claims she hooked up with one of Edwin's teammates in 2015 -- but was tested in December 2015 at a Planned Parenthood and was told she was clean. 

The woman claims she later hooked up with Edwin during a trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic in February 2016 ... and had unprotected sex on at least 2 occasions. 

Problem is ... the woman claims she was in pain in the days after the hookup and thought she had Zika -- so she went to a doctor. 

She later learned it was NOT Zika -- but rather two STDs. 

The woman claims she contacted Edwin -- but he insisted he was clean and "suggested she may have picked up [the STDs] when they went 4-wheeling and she swam in the river."

The woman says Edwin later backed off his claims about being STD-free -- and then stopped contacting her altogether. The woman claims she now believes he knew he was carrying STDs all along.  

The woman is suing Edwin for battery, misrepresentation of the facts and more -- and is demanding more than $11.5 MILLION to make things right. 

We reached out to Edwin's agent -- who told us "no comment."

Ryan Lochte seems genuinely remorseful about his behavior in Rio ... and he not only says he was irresponsible when it came to excessive drinking ... he's not ruling out rehab. 

Our photog got Ryan in L.A. Monday, and he had a lot to say ... about Speedo firing him, how being suspended by the USOC would crush him, and what he'll do post-pool.

Usain Bolt Gold Medal Grinding ... But That Ain't Your GF!

8/22/2016 7:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Usain Bolt might have some 'splainin' to do ... 'cause the Jamaican track god was grinding all over some chick at a Brazilian nightclub this weekend ... a chick who ain't his GF.  

Bolt hit up the All In nightclub in Rio to celebrate his 30th birthday -- and went full crotch to ass with his female dance partner in front of a packed crowd ... while Rihanna's "Work" played in the background. 

As we previously reported, Bolt's been dating Jamaican fashionista Kasi Bennett -- but she was nowhere to be seen at the club. 

We've reached out to Usain's camp for comment -- stay tuned.

Whitney Cummings to Neighbor You Killed My Trees But You Can't Stump the Cops

8/22/2016 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0818-whitney-cummings-tmz-gettyWhitney Cummings is livid at a neighbor who she claims went all Paul Bunyan in her backyard, and now cops are investigating. 

We're told Whitney walked in her backyard this week and was horrified to see a tree massacre, courtesy of her neighbor's gardener.

Seems the neighbor was frustrated that Whitney's wall of bark was blocking his view, and she says he ordered the landscaper to do a hatchet job on her property ... cutting the trees down to stumps.

Whitney called the cops, who came out and took a felony vandalism report ... she claims the damages total around $36k.  

Sources tells us the neighbor offered to pay Whitney something, but it's unclear how much.

We spoke with the neighbor, who had no comment. We also reached out to Whitney, but so far no word back.
