But Only If ...
10/7/2015 3:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Trevi survived one of the biggest scandals in the history of music -- after shooting to superstardom in the '90s, she and her bf/manager were accused of running a sex cult for minors. The couple fled to Brazil, and Trevi was eventually arrested there and imprisoned for nearly 5 years while awaiting trial.
Oh, and she managed to get pregnant while behind bars. When it was all said and done ... she was acquitted due to lack of evidence.
Soooo ... now that her biopic "Gloria" is out, and she's reviving her career -- we wondered if she'd consider playing Trump's inauguration.
Check out her answer ... she's NOT saying never.

Disneyland might have pissed off a guest who was forced to change his outfit during the annual "Gay Days" weekend but our DLand sources say the guy never brought it up with them.

But get this ... Gilet made a huge stink on social media about the double standard in men and women's clothing allowed at the park but we're told he never filed a complaint with park officials.
Anthony says he's still got love for Minnie and Mickey though and plans to return to the park.

Under the deal, Steve-O has to turn himself in for a 30-day sentence in December with 3 years of probation. He also has to pay $7,409 in restitution fees and stay out of Hollywood temporarily. He can only perform pranks or stunts in the LA area during his probation ... if he has a permit.
However, Steve-O didn't seem too worried about the whole thing this morning at LAX.

According to the legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Caitlyn has already taken the deposition of a paparazzo who was at the scene of the PCH crash, to determine if the photog caused or contributed to the crash.

Mally Mall Is Blackmailing Me
... With Other Sex Tapes
10/7/2015 11:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The "Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood" star says Mally is obsessed with her and told her he would "EXPOSE UR DIRTY P" if she didn't stop being a bitch. She says a week later, he leaked a sex tape they had made.
Mudarris makes the accusations in her request for a restraining order against Mally Mall. In the docs, she also says he's threatened to kill himself. As for violence against her ... Mudarris says Mally injured her nose back in February, and has destroyed her phones multiple times.
Nikki seems to fear Mally's exotic pets, because when asked about any weapons he might own -- she points out his collection of wild animals and snakes.
Mudarris says Mally's been hitting her up for money, and believes he's recorded other sexual encounters without her knowledge to blackmail her. In other words -- don't be shocked if another sex tape leaks.
A judge granted the restraining order ... which requires Mally Mall to stay 100 yards away and have no contact with Nikki.
Last night Mally sounded like he was just as done with Nikki as she is with him.
Detained In Canada
By Immigration Officials
10/7/2015 10:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Randy Quaid can't seem to get things right north of the border ... he was just detained in Canada and it could lead to his deportation.
Law enforcement tells TMZ Quaid was picked up in Montreal where he and his wife Evi live. It appears Evi was involved in the incident as well, she tweeted, "i love that Canada needs to learn how to wake up and criticize its crappy government ... ps we got arrested by an actual tall midget."
It's unclear why Quaid was detained but an immigration official tells TMZ he will have a detention review hearing on Thursday.
A law enforcement source in Santa Barbara -- where Quaid has several warrants out for his arrest -- tells TMZ they'll pick him up once he's brought back to the US.
The couple has been in Canada for years after legal troubles in the US, reportedly living in Montreal since January 2013.
Protesters Disrupt Big Premiere
10/7/2015 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A group of women -- more than a baker's dozen -- torpedoed the London premiere of Meryl Streep's new movie over women's rights issues ... which is ironic since Streep has been one of their champions.
It's unclear if Streep was on the red carpet yet Wednesday when the protesters laid their bodies on the ground -- showing their outrage for Parliament's decision to cut funding for domestic violence services.
The women -- part of a group called Sisters Uncut with a hashtag that reads #deadwomencantvote -- never said they have a problem with Streep or her movie, "Suffragette." The flick is about a group of women in England who championed the women's right to vote movement.
It's unclear if the protesters have issues with the film, or just used the venue to piss on Parliament.
Ex 'Idol' Corey Clark
I Got Railroaded By My Wife's Stepdad
... He's the Cop Behind My Arrest
10/7/2015 10:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Former "American Idol" contestant Corey Clark's arrest was the result of a conspiracy -- set in place by his estranged wife and her detective stepfather ... at least that's what Clark is claiming now.
Clark got busted September 23 in Yuma, AZ, and was eventually charged with misdemeanor domestic violence. But Tuesday in L.A. he told us the whole thing was a revenge plot.
Clark says he'd filed a report against Monica Clark just prior to his arrest, claiming she was violating their child custody agreement. Clark thinks it's no coincidence he was arrested right after that, especially because his wife's stepfather is a Yuma PD detective.
We've reached out to Yuma PD for a response ... so far, no word back.
