5/29/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520-madilyn-sweeten-twitter-01"Everybody Loves Raymond" star Madylin Sweeten dragged a soap opera creator's name through the mud ... according to him, and now he wants her to cough up $1.5 million.

In the suit, Bryan James says Sweeten smeared his name and business when she sued him ... claiming he duped her into investing in "Youthful Daze" ... an Internet soap.

James is asking the court to dismiss Madylin's lawsuit, and he wants the $1.5 mil for damages to his business and reputation.

He tells us Sweeten only sued him in the first place because she didn't like working with him.

Johnny Depp's Ex-Wife He Isn't A Woman Beater

5/28/2016 12:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0527-johnny-depp-lori-anne-allison-TMZ-REXUSA-01Johnny Depp would never lay a hand on a woman and isn't capable of hurting anyone ... so says Johnny's first wife, Lori Anne Allison.

Lori, who was married to Johnny from 1983 to 1985, tells friends she doesn't believe Amber Heard's claim that Johnny brutalized her multiple times during their short marriage.

Lori's saying Johnny never got physical with her during their relationship ... he never even screamed.

She calls him a "soft person" who is even kind to animals. Lori and Johnny had a dog during their marriage and he was more loving with the pooch than most parents are to their kids. 

Lori and Johnny are still friends and spoke as recently as last week when she called to offer her condolences over his mother's death.

TMZ broke the story ... Amber claims Johnny went on a violent tirade while high and drunk last weekend and smashed an iPhone on her face.

5/28/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0528-jlo-house-splash-launch-01Jennifer Lopez just sealed the deal on one of the best houses in all of Los Angeles ... TMZ has learned.

Our real estate spies tell us, J Lo closed on an 8-acre Bel-Air estate and got a deal. The prior owner, Sela Ward -- who is repped by Williams & Williams -- was asking $40 mil and we're told Jennifer snagged it for a very reasonable $28 mil.

The property is spectacular ... the main house is 13,000 square feet, and get this ... it has its own lake and a beach!  

The architecture is French stone country villa ... and super romantic.

To get to the front door you walk across a covered bridge, above a creek.

J Lo, who was repped by super realtor Brett Lawyer, is selling her Hidden Hills estate for $12.5 mil. That house is also great ... 17,000 square feet on 3 acres. 

She's got a small house on a way bigger lot. $28 mil buys a lot, right?

Johnny Depp Coke and Booze Fueled Recent Violence ... Amber Claims

5/28/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0527_johnny_depp_tmzJohnny Depp may have a credibility problem if Amber Heard's violence claims make their way to court ... because if she's right, his memory of events will be highly questionable, thanks to coke and liquor.

Sources connected to Amber tell us she's outraged Johnny is calling her a liar over the domestic violence allegations ... because he's almost always high.  

Amber claims Johnny was "barely ever sober" during the 15 months they were married. She says he was perpetually high, except when he was shooting a movie, when he hired a chef and a trainer and got sober. Once the movie wrapped, it was back to drugs and alcohol. 

Amber claimed in her legal docs he is "often paranoid and his temper is exceptionally scary for me." She goes on ... "Johnny's paranoia, delusions and aggression increased throughout our relationship. So has my awareness of his continued substance abuse."

She claims on both occasions where she has accused him of domestic violence, he was "inebriated and high." 

Amber got a temporary restraining order Friday ... requiring Johnny to stay 100 yards clear of her. Johnny denies her claim that he inflicted any violence upon her. The order was precautionary, and the judge will conduct a full hearing next month to determine who is telling the truth and who is lying.

Empire star Ta'Rhonda Jones says she and cast mate Taraji P. Henson think the stripper poles and jails cells aligned when their show characters first met. 

Jones is set to appear on Matt Weiss and Theo Von's "Allegedly" podcast this week and she's asked how she thinks Porsha and Cookie met. It's interesting ... Jones thinks they would've met in prison and Henson believes it would've definitely been in a strip club.

Either way ... the two certainly make an interesting duo.

Blac Chyna to Rob Back of the Air Bus, Bitch!!!

5/28/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0527-rob-kardashian-blac-chyna-tmz-3Good thing Rob Kardashian's lost all that weight, because his knees are about to make contact with his chin.

We found out Rob's flying economy this weekend ... where he can barely look through the curtain and see his fiancee in first.

TMZ got hold of the rider for the couple's appearance Saturday in Vegas ... at the Tropicana's Sky Beach Club. They will get 2 round-trip plane tickets ... one first and one economy. And we know who's not in first.

Their rider also calls for multiple bottles of booze ... bad idea for both.
