White House New Fence Jumper Dangled From Her Shoelaces

3/22/2017 11:54 AM PDT
Breaking News

0322-white-house-getty-03The latest White House fence jumper was caught as she was hanging from the top of the fence by her shoelaces.

TMZ has obtained the incident report, which details the movements of the 38-year-old woman. It says she went back and forth, staring at the White House for a long period of time before making her move Tuesday at 10:50 PM.

The Secret Service agent who was watching her lost sight for a second and the next thing he knew she had caught her shoelaces on an iron spire and dangled helplessly on the inside of the fence. Agents helped her down before arresting her to keep her from falling on her head.

She told agents she was there to speak to the president.

She had a map of the White House, although the incident report does not explain whether the map showed the interior or exterior grounds.

As we reported, Congressman Jason Chaffetz told us, based on what he knew so far, the Secret Service followed protocol.

Taraji P. Henson, Nia Long At War on 'Empire' Set

3/22/2017 11:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0322-taraji-henson-nia-long-tmzTaraji P. Henson and Nia Long were at each other's throats on the set of "Empire" in such a big way ... producers almost had to shoot the scenes they were in together ... separately.

Multiple production sources tell TMZ, Nia was extremely rude to the people in hair, makeup and wardrobe -- something Nia's people strongly deny -- which pissed Taraji off something fierce. 

We're told it got to the point they stopped speaking to each other when they were on set. Our sources say it was next to impossible to film the scenes they did together, and that's why they had actually blocked out how to shoot those scenes separately.

Nia played a recurring role in season 3, which has wrapped. Her character was an ex of Lucious Lyon, who was in the process of getting back with Cookie.

As for whether Nia will be back for season 4, our sources say no way in hell. 

Nia's rep tells TMZ, "This story is complete nonsense. Throughout her long, established career, Nia has been nothing but a consummate professional treating all members of productions with respect."

The rep goes on, "This is nothing but another complete fabrication about a series that has been plagued by constant rumors of drama and misconduct."

3/22/2017 10:37 AM PDT

'Harry Potter' actor Jim Tavaré is slowly recovering from the car accident that sent him to ICU for 2 weeks, and this week he got a dose of love from his pooch.

For the first time since the accident, Jim was taken outside of the hospital in a wheelchair to be reunited with his dog, Mr Kippy, who was more than ecstatic to see his master.

Mr Kippy had been in the car during Jim's head-on collision. Both miraculously survived ... the dog more unscathed than Jim, who is still mending from a broken neck and several other broken bones, as well as collapsed lungs.

He already looks better than he did weeks ago.

'Cash Me Outside' Girl Angry at Ex-BFF For Leaking Fight Video with Mom

3/22/2017 10:06 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

"Cash Me Outside" girl Danielle Bergoli says video showing her getting a beatdown from her mom is the handiwork of a former bff out for revenge.

The video is graphic, showing Danielle's mom, Barbara Ann, pinning her daughter to the ground, almost like an MMA fight ... calling her a "bitch."

Sources close to Danielle's  family tell TMZ ... the video was leaked by a girl who was angry because Danielle's mom kicked her out of their home.  

We're told the video -- which first surfaced Tuesday on WorldStarHipHop -- captured an incident that occurred 1 to 2 years ago, which would mean Danielle would have been 11 or 12. We're told neither Danielle nor her mom remember what triggered the fight.

It's unclear if the video has triggered a Children's Services or police investigation.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross says his wife is "being kept alive via life support equipment" after a bad car accident earlier this week ... and is now describing her brain injury as "catastrophic."

As we previously reported, Jan Ross was riding her Vespa home from the gym Monday night when she was struck from behind by another car. She was not wearing a helmet and suffered multiple skull fractures. 

Jim says Jan is still hospitalized in Oklahoma and her life is in serious danger. 

"We hope that the swelling of Jan's brain will subside soon as it must for her to survive," Jim explained in a blog post ... "It's that simple."

"Nonetheless my little, Italian angel who loves her Steelers and all things Pittsburgh is fighting for all's she worth to save her life."

Jim added, "I will fully admit that there has been no experience in my life that could have prepared me for this life changing week. To see one's life partner and love of one's life being kept alive via life support equipment is tragically heartbreaking."

"My wife would be so moved to know how many of you are praying for her."

EXCLUSIVE

0322_Vince-Jones_big_rig-historyVince Jones -- who stars on History Channel's "Big Rig Bounty Hunters" -- died at his home in Delaware, OH on Wednesday  ... TMZ has learned.

Vince's mother, Cathy Smith, tells us ... Vince's wife woke up at 4 AM and heard him making strange noises, and he was barely breathing. She says the wife performed CPR and his 14-year-old son tried to help as well ... but they couldn't revive him.

The family believes it was a heart attack.

We're told Vince was diagnosed with sleep apnea last year and wasn't wearing his mask Tuesday night ... which they believe deprived him of oxygen and triggered the heart attack.

Vince's daughter just got married last Saturday, and we're told he was fine at the wedding.

Vince leaves behind his wife and 6 children. He was 46.

Wyclef Jean Sheriffs Lied About Traffic Stop

3/22/2017 6:53 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wyclef Jean says L.A. County Sheriff's deputies flat-out lied about his traffic stop to cover their asses.

Wyclef tells TMZ, he doesn't really have a problem with the fact he was stopped in West Hollywood early Tuesday after someone dressed similar to him and driving a similar car committed an armed robbery.

The singer has big issues with the Sheriffs' narrative -- that he was furtive, went to his trunk and refused to move his hands away from his waistband. Wyclef calls BS, saying the cops were all over him the second they stopped the car and he had no chance of going to the trunk.

Wyclef says the Sheriffs have committed character assassination and he's now considering legal action ... not for the stop, but for what he says are the blatant lies.update_graphic_red_bar7:02 AM PT -- The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. has doubled down, saying they are sticking with their story that Wyclef went to his trunk and ignored demands to move his hands away from his waistband.  They also say they'd love to talk with him to clear the air.update-grey-gray-bar
