Super Bowl LII: Tom Brady's Jersey On Lockdown 'Don't Want Another Jerseygate'

1/23/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

There will be no Jerseygate 2 at Super Bowl LII -- with law enforcement putting together special plans to watch Tom Brady's jersey LIKE A HAWK in the wake of last year's theft, TMZ Sports has learned. 

First off, the guy who jacked Tom's jersey out of the locker room in 2017, Mauricio Ortega, has been banned from all Super Bowls (and all NFL games) for life ... an NFL spokesperson tell us. 

Law enforcement directly involved with the SBLII protection in Minneapolis says the protection of player property -- especially game-used memorabilia -- will be a major priority this time around. 

As one source put it ... "One of the main goals is to keep people and property safe. We do not want a repeat of last year and we have learned lessons from other major sporting events."

We're told the overall security plan involves federal agencies, multiple state agencies and private security plus "surveillance everywhere."

Still, Tom might wanna have a designated "jersey guy" just in case ...

Pamela Anderson Wanna Lease My Malibu Estate???

1/23/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Pam Anderson is living in Europe, at least for now, so it makes sense that, rather than just letting her awesome Malibu home sit empty, she's leasing it for a cool $40k a month ... and more during summer.

The 5,500 square foot house is pretty spectacular. It's super architectural, with floating staircases, massive closets, a Picasso-style tub, a detached guest house, a cool pool and, of course, the Pacific Ocean.

The $40k a month price tag is for long-term leases, but during the summer months the price soars to $70k a month. Pam's listed the house with super realtor Chris Cortazzo

The ocean -- and the super exclusive Malibu Colony where the house is located -- don't come cheap.

Dominic Monaghan Sues You Screwed Up My Yard And You Didn't Have a License to Do It!

1/22/2018 7:03 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dominic Monaghan had some landscaping done at his place by a guy he thought was qualified to do the job -- but turned out to be far from it ... this according to a new lawsuit.

The "Lord of the Rings" and "Lost" star just filed suit against Bruce De Luis, who Monaghan says presented himself as a contractor last year and agreed to do some work on his L.A. property -- installing steps and a stone patio, as well as general landscaping. 

Monaghan claims he shelled out a total of $53,840 for the job, but eventually came to find a bunch of defects and a substandard end product. He says he got a new estimate from a licensed contractor for the repairs, which came out to about $21,000. 

When he went back to De Luis -- who Monaghan claims didn't have a contractor's license to begin with -- the actor says the guy told him to get lost ... refusing to reimburse him for the alleged sloppy work.

Monaghan's asking a judge to force De Luis to fork over his original expenses and other damages.

1/22/2018 5:22 PM PST

Lisa Marie Presley's estranged husband just conceded she runs circles around him when it comes to income, and that's why he's asking the judge to forcibly open her purse.

Michael Lockwood just filed legal docs asking the judge in the couple's ongoing divorce to make Lisa Marie foot the $450,000 bill for his lawyers' fees. To justify that ... he submitted income declarations that show he makes a tiny fraction of what she pulls in.

According to the docs, Michael earns between $20 and $25 an hour at 2 different music stores, doing things like cleaning guitars and running errands for the owner.

Lisa Marie, on the other hand, rakes in just shy of $350,000 per month with an annual income of $4.2 mil.

EXCLUSIVE

Comic Steve Brown says the guy who viciously attacked him during his stand-up act over the weekend was loving the show when all of a sudden he seemed to go from Jekyll to Hyde.

Steve told us what happened in the moments before his attacker stormed the stage and started wielding a mic stand like a samurai sword. Steve says he's not sure what set him off, and it didn't help that the venue's security didn't jump to his rescue.

Cops still haven't found the guy, and even with a battle wound on his arm ... Steve had to think twice when we asked if he was going to press charges.

EXCLUSIVE

Too Short says the woman suing him for sexual battery is making a vengeful, shameless money grab ... and he's vowing to take his own legal action against her.

We got Short Monday in L.A. and asked for his reaction to Teana Louis claiming he sexually assaulted her on multiple occasions in 2016. The allegation is simply an extortion attempt ... according to him, anyway.

Short tells us he's got no choice but to countersue to squash this, and has a message for his accuser regarding the #metoo movement.
