'Walking Dead' Star

I Regret NYC Subway Rant

5/2/2015 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Walking Dead" star Chad L. Coleman regrets causing a scene on a NYC subway Friday, but stands by his message.

Coleman tells us, he had a lot of "built up frustration" because of the Baltimore situation and just lost it when someone on the train used the "n" word in referring to him.  The guy's friend said she recognized Coleman, and he responded by saying, "No, we don't know that n*****."

Coleman insists he was not drunk during the rant, but adds he's not proud he couldn't control his emotions.  

And the actor wanted to apologize to cast members of "The Walking Dead" and his family.

Tyga

Watch Me Stiff My Landlord!!!

5/2/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0501-tyga-tmz-01

Tyga is a wanted man in Calabasas ... wanted by a landlord who claims the rapper owes them a fortune in back rent and is now thumbing his nose at them ... so they're threatening Kylie's BF with jail.

Tyga rented a fancy house in Calabasas back in 2010, but fell way behind. The landlord got a judgement for nearly $90k in back rent. But that's not the end of the story.

Tyga never paid the judgment, so the landlord filed legal docs to force Tyga back into court, so a lawyer could grill him on where he's keeping his assets ... assets that could be seized to satisfy the judgment.

You may recall last month, while Tyga was hawking his L.A. Gear kicks at a release party, he got served with papers ... and now we know that was to demand he show up for the hearing.

Tyga, it seems, had better things to do, because he was a no show, which pissed off the landlord. Tyga's lawyer then tried to mollify the landlord by offering to pay his lawyer bill for the hearing, which came to $1090. Tyga wrote a check ... and it bounced!

To add insult to injury, the landlord noticed that Tyga posted on his Instagram -- 5 days before the hearing -- stacks of hundred dollar bills. 

So now the landlord's out for blood, demanding he pay the full judgment, plus interest, which has now swelled to $124k. And, the landlord warns, if he doesn't pay, he'll get an arrest warrant because Tyga failed to show at the hearing. 

Something tells us ... it's not over.

Diddy

When in Vegas ...

Bring Extra Protection!

5/2/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Diddy Mayweather Pacquiao PartyDiddy wants to leave the fighting to the professionals this weekend in Las Vegas, so he's taking extra precautions to make sure he doesn't get into any trouble during his Mayweather/Pacquiao party. 

The rap mogul is once again hosting a huge after-party for the fight at the Havana Room & Beach Club at the Tropicana -- but Diddy wants this fiesta to go smoother than his Super Bowl event ... where he got into a fight with a pissed off fan.

According to our sources, here's Diddy game plan:

-- his VIP section will be far away from normies (unlike SB weekend) 
-- 20 extra security guards to watch over his VIP section
-- guards instructed to immediately toss anyone heckling Diddy

Mo money, less problems ... that's the goal, anyway.

Michael Lohan

I'm On an Installment Plan

for Child Support!

5/2/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Lohan Paying Child SupportBad news for Michael Lohan, with a silver lining ... he still owes Dina Lohan a big chunk of change in child support, but at least now he gets to pay it off over time.

MiLo cut a check recently for $9,500 to the New York State Child Support Processing Center to partially settle his debt with Dina. He still owes around $6,000.

The judge has mercifully let the patriarch pay the balance in $1,500/month installments. Michael had previously argued he paid his kids directly because Dina was irresponsible in the money department, but the judge scoffed, ruling that dog don't hunt.  

The judge had previously revoked Michael's passport and suspended his driver's license, but he got them back once he paid the $9,500.

'Walking Dead' Star

Goes Ballistic on NYC Subway

Exclusive Details

Chad L. Coleman -- an actor who famously played Tyreese on "The Walking Dead" and Cutty on "The Wire" had a complete meltdown Friday on a New York City subway train.

Coleman is screaming, making sure everyone knows he's Chad L. Coleman from "The Walking Dead" and "The Wire." His rant is nonsensical and ear-shattering loud.

You see passengers recoil and eventually the seats around him are empty.

We spoke with Coleman, who told us he heard a guy and a girl on the train talking, trying to figure out where they knew him. He says the guy told the girl, "No, we don't know that n*****," and that set him off.

As for the screams about humanity, he says he was referencing the problems in Baltimore.

He says he was sober on the train.

N.W.A. Photog

Dear MTV, Express Yourself

WITHOUT Jacking My Photos

5/2/2015 12:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0501-nwa-viacom-wiki-01The guy who shot the most iconic image of N.W.A. says the same company keeps ripping off his classic work with the rap legends ... so now he's trying to take 'em down in court. 

In the docs, Howard Rosenberg says at least 3 of his shots popped up on MTV.com and BET.com -- which are both owned by Viacom. It's deja vu for Rosenberg ... who points out he also sued Viacom in 2011 for the same thing, and eventually settled.

Rosenberg says his N.W.A. pics are so valuable because they were shot in 1989 -- right before Ice Cube left the group. So he says they're rare shots of the whole lineup -- Cube, Dr. DreEazy-E, DJ Yella, and MC Ren.

Howard says he already fired off a warning letter to Viacom, which deleted the images from its websites ... but they still haven't paid him a dime.

He's now asking a judge to make the media giant cough up his cash and stop using his pics once and for all.

Adrien Broner

Cuffed in Vegas

For Fashion Felony

5/1/2015 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Boxing champ Adrien Broner was handcuffed and detained by cops in Las Vegas Thursday night, but not arrested ... and his people say it's all because an "a**hole security guard" didn't like the way he was dressed.

People in Adrien's camp tell TMZ Sports ... the 3-time world champ and 7 members of his posse went to Tao nightclub in the Venetian and plunked down $11k for a table. They say the host took the money and let them in, so they took the escalator up to the club and then things went south.

They say a security guard stopped them and said they had to leave because they weren't dressed properly, claiming their jeans and shoes were a deal breaker. Adrien got pissed and said it was hip-hop night and Fabolous was performing, so they were not only dressed appropriately but others were wearing the same thing.

The guard wasn't moved and ordered them to leave. Adrien refused so the guard called the cops.

Police came, cuffed Adrien and took him to a room. His people say police held the boxer for 20 minutes, let him go and then Adrien and his crew left the hotel.

Check out the video ... you hear Adrien say, "They're mad 'cause I'm rich" ... something that seems to be a theme when Broner meets cops.

Broner was arrested in Ohio back in January for DUI. The boxer humblebragged to the arresting officer he was "blessed" because he made more than $100 million in his career. He pled not guilty and the case is pending.

So far no comment from Tao.

Vine Star Cameron Dallas

All Clean After Messy Paint Arrest

5/1/2015 4:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Vine star Cameron Dallas certainly isn't the next Picasso but his teen fans won't have to worry about him being a convict either because he just dodged the jail bullet.  

Cameron will not be prosecuted for allegedly throwing a paint can off his 6th story apartment balcony and nearly missing a woman below. Prosecutors tell us there just wasn't enough evidence he threw the can, despite cops insisting he did the deed. 

Our photog got Cameron out in Hollywood Thursday night and he insisted he was wrongly fingered for the offense. In fact, he says no one threw a paint can, and cops were trying to frame them. Get it ... paint, framed?

TMZ broke the story ... Cameron was arrested with two friends back in March. In addition to the paint can allegation, cops said he vandalized his apartment by covering it with paint, but that all turned out to be a civil matter ... covered by his security deposit. 

Advice to Cameron ... stick to 6 second videos.

LeAnn Rimes

Accidentally Sets Off Airplane Fire Alarm

... MY BAD!!!

5/1/2015 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

LeAnn Rimes is lucky she's famous ... because most people would be in serious trouble if they set off the fire alarm on an airplane, but she was able to joke about it.

The country music/reality TV star was on a flight to Los Angeles, when she took a bathroom break to freshen up. As she explains it: "Leave it up to me to set off the fire alarm in the airplane bathroom w/ @theDrybar dry shampoo #purecomedy #firsttimeforeverything."

Our photog was waiting for LeAnn when she landed, and she laughed off the whole thing -- although it sounds like the flight staff wasn't as amused ... at first, anyway.

Check out how LeAnn diffused the situation, and uh ... nice hair?

Tara Reid

I Dig Elizabeth Banks ...

No Clue Why She's Coming for My Neck

EXCLUSIVE

Elizabeth Banks Disses Tara ReidWe don't wanna bury the lead here, so we'll just say it -- Tara Reid is gonna keep things classy ... when it comes to responding to Elizabeth Banks' huge unprovoked swipe at her career.

If ya missed it ... the "Pitch Perfect 2" star told The Hollywood Reporter, "I used to go to auditions with Tara Reid. So, you know we didn't all make it. We're not all still here."

Mind you ... Banks was not asked about Tara at all -- so no one was more shocked about the pot shot than Tara. She tells TMZ, "I've always been a fan of her work and that’s sad to hear she said those things about me."

Banks did go on to say ... "But I do love 'Sharknado.'"

Her attempted backstroke isn't fooling Tara, but she's still sticking to the high road. Tara says if she ran into E. Banks today she would "smile and say, hi."

Well played, Tara. "Sharknado 3" ... coming this summer!
