Evander Holyfield should probably sign up for Uber STAT ... the cash-strapped boxing legend's about to have his driver's license suspended after blowing off more than $300k in child support payments, TMZ has learned.
We broke the story ... The GA Dept of Human Services has been trying to collect cash from Holyfield for months, after he was ordered to pay over $500,000 in child support for his daughter Emani Holyfield ... but E.H. continuously failed to do so.
Holyfield was even put on a payment plan to chip away at the debt ... paying $2,950 per month ... but according to court docs, he missed several payments and still owes $327,858.36.
Now, a Georgia judge has given the Division of Child Support Services the green light to strip Holyfield of his driver's license -- or start the process at least -- as an incentive to get him to pay up.
A hearing's set for August to check up on his progress. It's unclear how he plans to get to court.
Leonardo DiCaprio -- 0 Oscars ... and a yacht filled with gorgeous, half-naked women frolicking around the South of France this week.
Leo wins. Again.
Nickelodeon is brainwashing your kids to think Italians are all bootlegging mafiosos and it MUST be stopped -- so says a pissed off Italian-American advocacy group, demanding parents BOYCOTT Nick's new flick.
The Italian-American One Voice Coalition -- a major national org. fighting against negative Italian-American stereotypes -- is peeved over the TV movie, "Nicky Deuce" ... set to bow on May 27th.
FYI :The flick is about a dorky Italian-American teenager who transforms himself into a mobster (to be cool, duh) ... just like his Italian-American uncle, who has mafia ties. Like "The Sopranos" with kids.
But One Voice tells TMZ ... this "trash television" is an affront to their culture, meant to "brainwash a new generation with an insidious and hurtful stereotype of Italian Americans."
"It is beyond reprehensible that Nickelodeon would so grossly abdicate any semblance of corporate responsibility and target young children with a biased, stereotypical movie."
They add, "We are appealing to all parents to not have their children watch this garbage."
Now here's the trailer. You decide ...
Lucky for you -- we've artificially generated some pics of stars with the same unsightly tan lines to make you feel a little less self-conscious.
The drama in Larry Hagman's life lives on ... months after his death, because the actor's estate now claims Larry's granddaughter has committed familial treason by holding ridiculously valuable jewelry hostage.
The lawyer for Hagman's Estate has filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- which claim Noel Hagman is in possession of a Raj necklace and matching earring set with encrusted diamonds and emeralds. The Estate claims the jewels were once owned by Larry's mom, actress Mary Martin, and given to Larry.
The Estate lawyer says somehow Noel got her hands on the jewels and won't give them back. The legal docs say Noel claims someone in the Hagman family gave her the necklace and earrings, but according to the Estate no one in the family cops to it.
The Estate wants the jewels back, and if she refuses, they want her to pay double the value -- the law provides double the value if someone wrongfully holds on to property. The legal docs don't place a specific value on the items.
Sounds like a good episode of "Dallas."
Amanda Bynes just tweeted something the cops clearly aren't buying -- she says she's drug free.
Amanda says, "I only smoke tobacco. I don't drink or do drugs." She adds, "I've never had a bong in my life!"
As you know, Amanda has been accused of smoking pot in her apartment and then throwing a bong out the window after police entered.
And there's more. Amanda says, "I need to get another nose job after seeing my mugshot!"
That seems to be the least of her problems.
Stone Temple Pilots claims Scott Weiland screwed the band out of millions of dollars and now it's looking forward to a very important date -- in court.
The band claims Weiland sabotaged it's 20th anniversary tour by being chronically late for performances and missing promotional gigs. The band also claims in the lawsuit Weiland had a plan to seize all the glory, to the point he wouldn't even communicate with band members. They say Weiland's plan was simple -- "hijack" the tour.
The band had actually fired Weiland in February and hired the lead singer of Linkin Park to replace him, but they claim Weiland got vindictive and tried to interfere with the release of its new single.
Stone Temple Pilots is asking for unspecified damages.
New York's finest returned to the scene of the alleged crime just a few minutes ago -- combing Amanda Bynes' apartment building for information and witness statements.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... NYPD cops got statements from the night doorman as well as 2 other employees, who were there when Amanda was allegedly smoking marijuana in the lobby and acting crazy.
We're told cops also went upstairs to Amanda's floor for more witness statements.
As we reported ... cops arrested Amanda after finding weed in her apartment. They also say she threw a bong out the window, allegedly to 86 evidence of a crime.
Amanda was charged with weed possession, attempted evidence tampering and reckless endangerment.
Tom Cruise fired up his Ducati and barreled out of a fancy Hollywood hotel late last night with a BRAND NEW CHICK ridin' on the back ... at least we think it was Tom Cruise ... LET'S INVESTIGATE!!!
Here are the facts ...
We know ... a mystery man sporting a motorcycle helmet left the Chateau Marmont hotel around 11:00 pm with a woman on the backseat.
We could see the man's brow line and nose ... and they bear a striking resemblance to Mr. Cruise.
We also know ... Tom was in town Thursday night, because he was photographed at the L.A. Kings playoff game at Staples Center earlier in the evening.
Plus ... it's no secret that Tom has a penchant for riding Ducatis ... and owns a Ducati superbike ... though the bike he's usually photographed on does NOT have a backseat.
We called Tom's rep who insists it's NOT Tom -- Still, we gotta ask ...
Gov. Chris Christie hates Snooki more than Snooki hates sobriety ... so says the MTV star ... and it couldn't have been more apparent during an awkward encounter in NJ moments ago.
Christie and Snooki came face-to-face on the Seaside Heights boardwalk after taping separate segments for the "Today" show.
During the exchange, Snooki complains that Christie is standing too close to her ... so Christie comically leans in even closer.
After Christie extended a handshake to the "Jersey Shore" star -- who was flanked by JWoww and Deena Cortese -- Snook tells CC, "I just wanted to meet you, and just, hope you start to like us.”
As Snooki walks away, she pulls the "I hate your guts" face ... it's classic.
After the encounter, Snook tweeted a photo of the meeting -- and wrote, "Getting told why we are bad for jersey. Amazing."
Kirk Kerkorian -- the billionaire who once owned United Artists and the MGM Hotel in Vegas -- has fired back against his ex-wife who is gunning to put him under a conservatorship, calling her a serial liar motivated by unbridled greed.
Lisa Bonder had filed legal docs claiming the 95-year-old Kirk was being held hostage by people in his company and she wanted someone to step in and, at the very least, allow Kirk to re-establish a relationship with their 15-year-old daughter Kira.
Now Kirk has fired back in legal docs, saying, "The only person Lisa Bonder has ever cared about is Lisa Bonder." Kirk says Lisa is a proven liar many times over -- for starters, he notes she deceived him into believing Kira was his kid by rigging a DNA test -- he says she took the DNA from Kirk's natural child and passed it off as Kira's.
Even though Kirk's not the dad, he stepped up for benefit of Kira and agreed to pay child support, but he says it's never been enough for Lisa. Kirk had agreed to pay $50,000 a month in child support, but Lisa wanted $100,000. After Kirk agreed to pay her $100k and gave her more than $10 million to just go away, she came back and asked for $500k a month.
Kirk notes in the docs that Lisa has lied to multiple judges about what she claims are Kira's needs, only to be shut down and exposed as a liar.
Kirk believes Lisa wants a conservatorship because she thinks she can screw him out of more money with a conservator.
Short story -- they don't get along.
