Exclusive Details

0526-abby-lee-miller-tmz-01Abby Lee Miller's "Dance Moms" studio was swarmed with cops after they say a homeless man was arrested for trying to get inside. 

Pennsylvania law enforcement tells TMZ Joe McKinstry showed up in the middle of a class Wednesday and started pulling at the studio's locked doors. We're told McKinstry demanded to get inside to read the students poetry. 

However, by the time cops showed up ... they say McKinstry was sitting in the middle of the street refusing to leave. Officers had to tase him after they say he tried to attack them. He was arrested and sent to the hospital for a mental evaluation.

Cops say Abby Lee and the show's cast weren't at the studio when it all went down, but it's known McKinstry has an obsession with Mackenzie Ziegler

We're told once he's released from the hospital, he'll be charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Johnny Depp Divorce His Family 'Hated' Amber

5/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0525-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-03Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's relationship was extremely bitter due to a full-blown feud between his family and Amber ... and this, we're told, is the backdrop for what is already an acrimonious divorce.

Multiple sources connected to the ex-couple tell us, Johnny's 2 teenage kids, his 2 sisters and his mom "hated" Amber, and openly discussed it.  We're told they talked about how Amber would rail on Johnny and "treat him like crap."

Earlier this year, Johnny moved his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, into the L.A. compound where he and Amber lived ... and the tension was palpable. We're told mom often told friends she thought Amber was using Johnny for his money and fame, and to boost her own career.

We're also told before Betty Sue moved in, she only saw her son once from the time he married Amber, and both Betty Sue and Johnny blame her for keeping them apart so she'd have full control.  

Our sources say Amber had 2 closed door sit-downs with Johnny's mom after she moved in, and after both meetings Betty Sue railed on her daughter-in-law, calling her a "terrible person."

We broke the story ... Amber filed for divorce Monday ... 3 days after Betty Sue died. There was no prenup, and Amber wants spousal support.

We're told Bristol and Levi are in a good place -- he's been keeping up on payments, and plans to chip away at the lump sum owed.

7:57 AM PT -- A rep for Kim and Kanye tells us the money won't be enough ... they also want a full retraction of everything he said in the interviews.

update_grey_gray_bar

Kim and Kanye have threatened their former blabbermouth bodyguard with a $30 million lawsuit, and he's gotta drop to his knees and apologize.

We've learned Kim and Kanye's lawyer has fired off a letter to Steve Stanulis ... the bodyguard who went to anyone who would listen, claiming he was fired for chatting up Kim on the job and making Kanye jealous. Kim and Kanye have both said it's a complete lie.

Turns out, we're told that Steve signed a confidentiality agreement promising never to breathe a word about Kim, Kanye or the klan. We're told the lawyer's letter is quick to mention a provision which says Steve is automatically on the hook for $10 mil if he opens his mouth ... and they believe he did at least 3 interviews.

It's interesting. We're told Kim and Kanye's lawyer gives Steve an out, if he shuts his trap and issues a public apology to the family. Our sources say the letter does not ask Steve to admit he lied but they demand he stop talking to the press. 

Kim and Kanye think Steve's MO is simple ... it's a cheap, underhanded way to get famous. A rep for the couple tells us, "This sad, parasitic maniac has violated every basic human tenet of decency with his story of lies. The Wests will explore all legal means at their disposal to silence this nonsense." 

BTW ... this isn't the first time Kim and Kanye have gone after someone for violating the confidentiality agreement. TMZ broke the story, YouTube founder Chad Hurley weaseled his way into AT&T Park in SF and videotaped Kanye's marriage proposal. Chad signed a confidentiality agreement and ended up paying them $440,000.

EXCLUSIVE

Shots rang out at a T.I. concert Wednesday night ... multiple people were hit and one is dead.

The rapper was set to perform at Irving Plaza in NYC Wednesday night when the shooting occurred. We're told at least 2 men and 2 women were hit.  A 33-year-old man who was shot in the stomach didn't make it.

The rapper had not yet taken the stage when the incident went down. Sources backstage tell us an argument erupted just before one of the opening acts took the stage. Someone brandished a gun and people backstage scrambled into the crowd as shots rang out.

Cops say at this point it's unclear how many shooters were involved and they don't have any suspects.

The Game Let Me Teach You About Hustling Weed & Guns in My New App

5/26/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Game wants to turn you into a hustling drug kingpin and street soldier -- and he can guarantee you won't get arrested too ... since it's all virtual in his new app "Block Wars."

Sources tell TMZ the rapper teamed with IM3 Gaming Studios to create a gritty mobile game set in Compton. The goal? Conquer one street at a time while competing with rival gangs to sell weed, guns, knives, buildings and cars. All in the name of fueling the economy, of course. 

Game stars as the hood boss in his hometown, but there are plans to expand the game to include an East Coast vs. West Coast war.

Game's game is set to drop sometime this summer and it'll be free. In-app purchases -- for weapons, cars, goons, etc. -- will range from 99 cents to $99.

'The Wonder Years' Star Busted for DUA ... Ambien

5/26/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-jason-robert-hervey-mug-shot-01"The Wonder Years" star Jason Hervey just learned the hard way ... never take Ambien before you get behind the wheel. 

Tennessee law enforcement tells TMZ ... they got a call about a swerving pickup truck and were able to locate it. Cops say Hervey was behind the wheel and totally out of it ... slurring, red-eyed and confused. 

Cops say Hervey miserably failed a field sobriety test. They searched the pickup and found a loaded handgun, but the actor had a permit. Hervey was booked for DUI and carrying a weapon while under the influence. 

The incident went down back in January 2015 but it went unnoticed, until this past weekend when Hervey served 48 hours behind bars for a misdemeanor DUI charge. The weapons charge was dropped.

Jason, who played Wayne Arnold on the show, tells us he has a prescription for Ambien and stupidly took one before hopping in the truck for a quick errand, he had no alcohol in his system ... he's thankful cops got him off the road before anything really bad happened.
