Paris Hilton

Obsessed Fan Gets Crazy

With Classic Caddy

EXCLUSIVE

Paris Hilton has an obsessed fan who seems to be as loaded as he is angry, because he bought her an amazing classic Cadillac, and when she refused it, someone mysteriously trashed the whip.

The guy -- whose first name is Johnny -- delivered the Caddy to Paris' Bev Hills gated community on Oscar Sunday. We're told Johnny got past the guard at the front gate by posing as a flower delivery guy, but when he rang Paris' door ... she called the cops.

The car sat on the street for two days, and on Tuesday someone bashed in all the windows. According to sources, Paris is convinced Johnny is the culprit because she wouldn't accept the gift, complete with flowers in the backseat.

Law enforcement sources say they've been on Johnny for a long time. He once flew a plane over the Hilton's Malibu compound with two signs, one of which read, "Can't Get Paris Whitney Hilton Out of My Mind." The other read, "Mr. & Mrs. Hilton, may I court your daughter Paris?"

0225_paris_hilton_skybanner_instagramJohnny also once sent Paris a really expensive wedding dress in the mail with a card that read, "Will you marry me?"

As for the Caddy, it's still sitting on the street because it's legally parked and registered to Johnny.update_graphic_red_barParis was spotted on the street with the car on Tuesday, taking photos of it as "evidence."

'Next Top Model' Mirjana Puhar

Lead Detective Also a Reality Star

2/26/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Americas Next Top Model Death The lead detective assigned to the murder case of "America's Next Top Model" star Mirjana Puhar ironically has a connection to the victim ... they're both reality TV stars.

Det. Norma McKee was on A&E's "The First 48" -- a docuseries about murder investigations -- back in 2011, when she was just a rookie. The episode chronicled a double-murder investigation, her first, involving a couple that was shot point blank in their car by a backseat passenger. 

McKee got her man, who is currently serving 28 years after pleading guilty to two counts of second degree murder. 

Puhar and two other people were killed Tuesday in Charlotte, NC. Police have already arrested a suspect, who has been charged with three counts of first degree murder.

J.K. Simmons

Calling All Cops ...

Mi Burrito Es Su Burrito

EXCLUSIVE

JK Simmons Buys Cops Lunch
"Whiplash" star J.K. Simmons went off again -- but instead of throwing chairs ... he was tossing out free Mexican food to cops at his favorite lunch spot.

Fresh off his Oscar win -- for playing a violent hard-ass -- Simmons flipped the script while grabbing lunch Tuesday at Poquito Más in the Valley. We're told he was buying for 2 friends, and got his usual ... a scampi burrito -- but while ordering he saw a couple of LAPD officers in line and picked up their tab too.

Looking to spread even more love ... J.K. stepped up again when a 3rd cop walked into the restaurant. 

We're told Simmons dropped about 50 bucks for all six meals -- which makes the moral of this story: Always be generous. Especially when you can get a great deal.

Madonna

Violently Yanked to Ground

During Awards Show

0225-madonna-down-launch-02

Madonna was horse collared and yanked off a riser onto a stage feet below ... all at the hands of a backup dancer.

The singer was performing Wednesday night at the Brit Awards in London, wearing an Armani cape with her back to the audience. The plan was for the backup dancer to dramatically pull the cape off of her as she revealed a sparkly outfit.

But before the pull Madonna was supposed to untie the cape strap around her neck. It was tied too tight and before it could be undone the backup dancer did his thing, pulling Madonna backwards neck first onto the stage.

She took a minute to collect herself and then went on performing.

It's the first time in 20 years Madonna performed at the Brit Awards.   

Good bet it will take another 20 to get her back.

'Ice Road Truckers' Star Tim Zickuhr

GUILTY of Prostitute Kidnapping

breaking news

Ice Roads Trucker Guilty Kidnapping Prostitute"Ice Road Truckers" star Tim Zickuhr didn't convince a judge the woman he allegedly tied up and threw in a closet was not a prostitute but a flaky friend, because he was just convicted of kidnapping.

TMZ broke the story ... cops say last April Zickuhr bound a Vegas prostitute named Snow White with backpack straps and locked her in a closet ... then tried to collect a $1,000 ransom from her friend, who happened to be a LVPD cop. 

A Nevada judge wasn't buyin' what Zickuhr was selling and found him guilty Tuesday of kidnapping and extortion. The judge then threw the book at him, sentencing him to a maximum of 15 years in prison.

Zickuhr hasn't appeared on the History Channel show since 2011.

Elizabeth Taylor

Family Jewels and Cash Held Hostage

... Liz's Trust Sues

2/25/2015 1:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0225-liz-taylor-getty-01One of Elizabeth Taylor's iconic jewelry pieces fetched almost $9 million in an auction -- but the buyer backed out, and now Liz's trust is suing famed auction house Christie's Inc. for screwing up the deal.  

Lizzie's Taj Mahal diamond necklace -- a gift from Richard Burton -- was one of the items hawked during Christie's 2011 auction ... which took in a whopping $156,756,576. Problem is ... the guy who bid $8,818,500 for the necklace backed out because the massive heart-shaped diamond wasn't up to snuff for him. 

Meanwhile, Christie's had already paid Taylor's trust for the necklace ... and when the guy backed out ... the auction house demanded the cash back. As you can imagine, they weren't in the giving mood. In fact, the Taylor trust is now suing Christie's.

0225-Necklace-liz-taylor-SUB-01

According to the suit ... Christie's is holding hostage millions of dollars gained from the auction of other items -- including a Bulgari ring and a Valentino fur evening bag. The Bulgari alone sold for $2.9 million. 

The Taylor trust says Christie's is strong-arming -- refusing to hand over cash from all the other items ... unless it gets back the Taj Mahal funds. 

The Taylor trust wants the court to tell Christie's to go kick rocks.

A rep for Christie's says the suit "stems from Christie's seeking the return of a small portion of proceeds due to the cancelled sale of a single item from the 1,800 lot collection."  The rep added they look forward to a "speedy resolution" on the matter.

Shawn Holley

Lindsay Got a Raw Deal

2/25/2015 1:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

022515_shawn_holley_launch_exitLindsay Lohan was on the up and up when she performed her community service and got credit for performing onstage ... this according to her lawyer.

Shawn Holley was on her way out of the courthouse when she explained Lohan did a pretty great thing for unfortunate London children by giving them the experience of a West End London play.

The judge disagreed and threw out more than half of Lindsay's community service hours, so she needs to redo 125 hours to complete her probation.

Holly went after prosecutor Terry White, saying all he really had to do was call CSV -- the community service org -- and they would have cleared things up. For his part, we know White is indignant, saying LiLo's community service was bogus.

Lindsay has been on probation for going on 8 years. She may not win an Oscar, but she definitely could get in the Guinness Book.

Dez Bryant

I've Been Betrayed

2/25/2015 12:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0225-dez-bryant-getty-01Dez Bryant says he's been betrayed ... but he's not saying by whom ... or how. 

In the wake of rumblings that a tape exists showing Bryant doing something terrible ... a tape everyone's talking about but no one says they've seen ... Bryant went to Twitter to express his frustration. 

"I need to get me a real raw uncut tv show or something ... I can't continue to get betrayed like this."

It's the second time Bryant has addressed the rumors.

Last week, he posted another cryptic statement that reads ... "Just quit with the b.s. … It’s clear as day what's going on… I might need to do a exclusive interview about my life these past 5 years since the world is destined to know."

"I use to let people take advantage of my life now that I’m no longer allowing that to happen it seems to be a problem… I’m not ashamed of none of my past incidents because that’s what made me who I am today."

Matt Bellamy

Blurs Lines with Kate Look-Alike

2/25/2015 11:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0225-matt-bellamy-elle-evans-AKMGSI-01Matt Bellamy jumped from Kate Hudson to her doppelganger -- who starred in the "Blurred Lines" video -- but we've learned he's just friends with the leggy model/actress.

Her name is Elle Evans -- and you'd probably know her better with her clothes off ... as she was in the uncensored version of Robin Thicke's hit music vid. 

The Muse singer and Evans were photographed on Oscar night -- but sources close to the situation tell us it was no romantic dinner date. They were leaving Craig's with about 10-12 other friends. We're told Sunday was the first time they'd hung out together. 

Guess she's just a good girl ...

Kid Rock

Wears a Coat Made of Otter

... and Spite!

2/25/2015 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022515_kid_rock_launchKid Rock is very proud of his otter skin jacket, not because it's warm and luxurious ... but because it's a big F-U to the animal activists ... including his ex, Pam Anderson.

Kid was out in New York City Tuesday night, celebrating the release of his new album, when he decided to brag about his coat ... completely unprompted. 

It's clear he's very fond of the jacket -- which he had monogrammed with a ridiculous pun -- but the whole exchange seemed purposely orchestrated to irk his animal-loving former flame. 

Even with Pam suddenly single, it seems the third ceremony between her and Kid will NOT be happening.
