Kate Major Arrest Terrorized Passengers and Flight Attendant ... Cops Say

11/30/2015 10:34 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

1130-kate-major-getty-01A judge ordered Kate Major go straight to rehab after she was busted for threatening to slash someone's throat during a flight -- and it's pretty clear she was wasted before getting on the plane. 

According to the criminal complaint, Michael Lohan's estranged wife started trouble before the flight took off ... bitching about having to put her seat forward. The situation quickly escalated in the air -- a witness told a crew member Major was harassing a passenger and was possibly drunk. Kate allegedly yelled the witness' wife was a "bitch," and then threatened to "slit her throat."

Flight attendants moved Kate to a different seat to keep an eye on her. When she asked for a glass of wine, the flight attendant refused. So, Kate whipped out her phone and started recording the flight attendant. 

The last straw came when she allegedly threw the phone and then rushed at a flight attendant. A passenger had to step in to hold her back -- and that's when the pilot decided to divert the plane to New Orleans.

Kate was arrested at the airport and booked for interfering with flight crew members, a federal offense with a very stiff penalty -- up to 20 years in prison.

She was released on a $25,000 bond, ordered to surrender her passport, and sent directly to a rehab facility in Southern California.


'Shallow Hal' Star Dies from Pneumonia

11/30/2015 9:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1127-joshua-shintani-getty-02Joshua Shintani -- best known from his cameo in "Shallow Hal" has died at the age of 32 ... TMZ has learned.

Joshua's mother says she took him to an emergency room early last week on Kauai, and doctors discovered he was battling an advanced case of pneumonia. Joshua died on Wednesday.

He had became a local legend in his native Hawaii after landing the memorable scene with Jack Black ... where Joshua strummed a ukulele and played, "Never Forget Where I'm From."

Peter Farrelly was on vacation in Hawaii when he discovered Joshua, a high school senior at the time, strumming his uke outside a public library. He signed him up for the movie on the spot. 

'Hal' was the only movie Joshua ever did. 

A rep for the Farrelly brothers tell us Joshua, "had a soul that glowed like a lighthouse.  We feel honored to have known him."


Joe Jonas Post-Gigi Bachelor Pad Room For At Least 6 New Chicks

11/30/2015 9:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130_joe_jonas_house_rental_launchJoe Jonas should have no problems rebounding from Gigi Hadid ... thanks to his new bachelor pad.

As we previously reported, the middle Jonas brother sold his WeHo home and has been doing the Airbnb thing in the Hollywood Hills. The place is a total chick magnet.

It's near the top of L.A.'s famous Runyon Canyon with a pool and insane views. Appropriately, most of its glass walls open to let Joe (and any guests) take in the canyons.

As for bedrooms ... it's got 7, so plenty of opportunities to forget about his last chick.

The place usually goes for $2,500 per night -- but we're guessing Joe got a deal since he's renting it long term.

breaking news

1130-sinead-oconnor-getty-facebookSinead O'Connor is alive and (physically) well and back at it again ... blasting her family and calling them "child stealing murderers." 

O'Connor once again took to Facebook to trash her children, a few baby daddies and her sister ... saying, "I'm s*** to you. You're dead to me. You killed your mother. You stole my sons." 

The vitriolic diatribe was her second in as many days ... after her first note, posted Sunday morning, appeared to be a suicide note directed to those same family members. 

O'Connor claimed in that post to have taken an overdose of pills, but she was later found "safe and sound" in Dublin and was reportedly getting medical attention.  


Erykah Badu I Know Rappers, and ... You're No Rapper, Iggy Azalea!

11/30/2015 6:31 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Just when Iggy Azalea thought it was safe to leave home ... Erykah Badu hit her with a ton of shade while hosting the Soul Train Awards.

Erykah opened the show by taking a slight shot at herself -- pointing out that hip-hop fans give her crap for making rappers "change gods and wear crochet hats" (see Andre 3000) ... but it was all a setup for this shot at Iggy.

Check it out ... the crowd loved it, but it'll be a while before Iggy sees the sun again. Just so much shade.

Jimmy Jam Adele Has Numbers But Janet's Still Got Her On ...

11/30/2015 6:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Adele is crushing Janet Jackson's comeback album -- and everyone else's for that matter -- on the charts, but Janet's longtime collaborator says don't hand Adele the crown just yet. 

We got legendary producer Jimmy Jam outside Staples Center, and to be clear ... dude has a ton of respect for Adele and the record-breaking success of "25" -- but he didn't back down when it came to defending Janet's "Unbreakable" album.

Jimmy's bottom line -- it's not ONLY about how many records you sell right now, and there's still one category where Adele can't touch JJ! 

Does he have a point? Check it out.

Joe Jonas Hitting Delete ... On Gigi & Zayn

11/30/2015 7:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-joe-jonas-gigi-zayn-getty-tmzJoe Jonas just did the bro version of drowning your sorrows over an ex in a tub of ice cream -- he gave Gigi Hadid and her new man Zayn Malik the dreaded social media cold shoulder. 

Guess Joe's seen enough, since he tapped the unfollow button on Gigi's IG over the holiday weekend -- right after Gigi and Zayn made their new romance pretty darn official.

The IG diss went further ... fans noticed Joe also deleted a photo of himself with Zayn and Kanye West he'd posted in June. The caption simply had read #squad.

1130-subasset-joe-jonas-twitterUnsquading ... it's a thing now.

1123_tyga_house_photos_launchTyga's dropping all kinds of excuses for not closing the deal on a pricey Calabasas home close to Kylie Jenner, but there are some strong signs why the sale keeps stalling out.

As we've reported, Tyga's got all sorts of money problems ... so he might be aiming high with a $10 million home.

Tony Dovolani says the Church of Scientology was hot on his tail during his stint with Leah Remini on "Dancing with the Stars" ... looking for any dirt they could find to discredit her ... even by association. 

Dovolani was at LAX, toting around Leah's book, 'Troublemaker,' -- when our photog asked if the Church harassed him. Tony unloaded. 

He's not afraid at all ... as he says, you tend to cherish your freedom when you come from Kosovo.

50 Cent His Lawyers Are Living High Life ... Sex Tape Victim Gripes

11/30/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-50cent-tmz50 Cent owes Lastonia Leviston millions for releasing her sex tape, so it makes sense she's upset his bankruptcy lawyers are living in the lap of luxury, and racking up huge expenses in the process.

Leviston, who won a $7 million judgement from Fiddy, filed docs calling out the rapper's legal team for dropping $57,241.76 on hotels alone while working on his bankruptcy case. Their legal research tab comes to $14,800.66, and a court reporter ran 'em $26,890. 

In the docs, Leviston calls these expenses unreasonable ... especially since 50 Cent filed for Chapter 11 in July. As part of his bankruptcy case, 50 has to regularly file his expenses with the court, and Leviston's not happy with the numbers.

She doesn't spell it out in her docs, but it seems Leviston's concerned 50 Cent won't have enough cash left to pay her if the lawyers are bleeding him dry. 

She wants a judge to reject the lavish reimbursements, and her message is pretty clear -- I'm watching where your money goes, Fiddy!
