Johnny Depp I Won't Give Amber My Financials Till She Shuts Her Trap

7/20/2016 10:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0720-johnny-depp-amber-heard-tmz-01Amber Heard leaks like a sieve, at least when it comes to yapping to the media, so claims Johnny Depp, who does not want to give her any of his financial info unless she swears to keep it private.

Johnny just filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, in which he concedes Amber is entitled to know something about his financial situation in order to get her cut in their divorce, but he says she has refused to sign a confidentiality agreement. 

In the docs Johnny's lawyer, disso queen Laura Wasser, claims Amber and her team have been blabbing to the media, suggesting that a TMZ story about details in their settlement negotiations came from Amber's camp.

Johnny also has a problem with the scope of Amber's demands for financial docs. She's asking for records from Johnny's Hollywood Vampire bandmates -- Joe Perry, Alice Cooper, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum -- which he says is absurd.

The Game, LAPD Police Chief Beck Unite to Stop the Violence

7/20/2016 10:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The Game and LAPD Police Chief Charlie Beck have joined forces in an effort to end shootings -- all shootings -- in L.A.

Game and Beck are featured in a video for the Stop the Violence campaign ... addressing out-of-control shooting incidents in the city. TMZ got an advance copy.

They are strange bedfellows. Game has become an instant leader in the black community, which is a radical departure from his past gang affiliations.

Game and Beck first met a few weeks ago, when the rapper and Snoop protested police brutality in front of LAPD headquarters, and had a chance meeting with the chief.

And the video is sure to ruffle some feathers ... some members of the Black Lives Matter movement in L.A. are demanding Beck's resignation ... saying he has condoned police violence in the African American community.

There were other issues with the project ... Chief Beck talked about them on "TMZ Live."

Leslie Jones Twitter Bans One of Her 'Trolls' ... Internet Outraged

7/20/2016 9:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0719-leslie-jones-milo-instagram-twitter-01Leslie Jones is in the middle of a social media uproar after Twitter shut down the writer Leslie blames for touching off a storm of racist hate against her. 

Milo Yiannopoulos -- a tech editor for the conservative news site Breitbart -- got banned after Leslie went back and forth with him and his followers over a very mean review Milo wrote about "Ghostbusters." We say "mean" because he called Leslie ... "worthy of a minstrel show."

Leslie's exchange with Milo and her followers included several trolls comparing her to a gorilla.

Leslie begged Twitter to step in, and Wednesday morning it apparently did -- but #FreeMilo is now trending because many users think his First Amendment rights are being violated.

Milo spoke about the ban at a Gays for Trump rally in Cleveland.

Melania Trump Speechwriter Falls on Sword Trump Rejects Resignation

7/20/2016 9:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0720_Melania_trump_Meredithprweb-gettyMelania Trump's speechwriter is stepping forward to take the blame for plagiarizing Michelle Obama's 2008 speech.

Meredith McIver says the almost word-for-word lifting happened after Melania gave her passages, over the phone, from Michelle's speech. McIver says she "wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech."

As we first reported on Tuesday's "TMZ Live" ... Melania likes the First Lady and had watched some of her speeches for inspiration prior to her own speech in Cleveland

Indeed, McIver says that's exactly what happened, but the mistake occurred because, "I did not check Mrs. Obama's speeches. This was my mistake, and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as to Mrs. Obama. No harm was meant."

McIver has been a co-author on several of Donald Trump's books. She says she attempted to resign on Tuesday, but Donald told her people make "innocent mistakes" and said she could learn and grow from the experience.

Kylie Jenner PUMA says ... I Can Just Do It!

Exclusive Details

0719-kylie-jenner-akm-01Kylie Jenner might be a slave to fashion, but she's definitely NOT to her employer -- since she's rocking Air Jordan 1s instead of PUMAs.  

KJ signed a brand ambassador deal for PUMA's Fierce sportswear line, but we've learned the fact she was out in L.A. on Monday sporting Nike's Jumpman logo ... is no problem at all.

A PUMA spokesperson tells TMZ ... they don't restrict Kylie from wearing other brands. They believe it's better to give her the choice and let her express her own personal style. This explains why we've also seen her showing love for Kanye's Adidas brand Yeezys.

See? There's plenty of Kylie to go 'round.

The Game Handing Out Hundos To Yo Mama ... And Valets Too

7/20/2016 7:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Some people keep it 100, The Game keeps it 1,000 by dropping tons of cash on groceries for a mother in need.

It was part of his Yo Mama My Mama campaign, which is his way of paying it forward. 

Best of all ... the rapper and social activist scored $1,000 worth of groceries for only $700, thanks to the woman's frequent shopper card.

Earlier in the day he tipped the valet at The Ivy with a crisp $100 bill for bringing around his Lamborghini Aventador.

Game's definitely on one. A really good one.

Conrad Murray Tell-All Michael Played Dress Up to Romp With Call Girls & Strippers

7/20/2016 8:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0720-Conrad-Murray-michael-jackson-gettyMichael Jackson dressed up like a clown, or even faked illness, just to meet random women ... at least that's what the man who killed him is reportedly claiming in a tell-all book.

Talk about chutzpah ... Conrad Murray has written a memoir called, 'This Is It' ... in which he says he will reveal all kinds of family secrets about MJ, yet also claims he's giving him "due respect."

Some of the secrets reportedly in the book include Murray claiming Michael would put on a clown costume and then hire strippers and call girls to hang with him in hotel rooms.

Murray -- who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter -- also claims Michael would use fake accents and pretend he was a stroke victim as a ploy to meet women.

0720-Conrad-Murray-book

Murray was MJ's confidante -- as well as his doctor -- and reportedly writes extensively about his and Michael's frequent encounters with call girls while they were living in Las Vegas. 

Best of all, Murray claims Michael wanted him to make all these revelations. 

Murray lost his medical license after his conviction -- but clearly not his brass pair.

EXCLUSIVE

0720-jeremy-piven-tmz-01Jeremy Piven opened his car door Tuesday -- no big deal. Problem was ... he didn't look first and a bicyclist slammed into the door, cutting his chest open. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Jeremy was near The Grove when he parked his car next to the curb and flung open the door of his 2015 CTS Cadillac. The 44-year-old man who was peddling along was badly hurt and taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Our cop sources say they believe Jeremy was at fault but he didn't get a ticket because cops didn't see it happen. We're told Jeremy was cooperative.

The victim received stitches on his chest. Too early to know about a civil suit, but you can bet on it.

We reached out to Piven ... so far no word back.

7/20/2016 6:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0719-disney-aligator-attack-instagram-01Lane Thomas Graves' parents say they're not going to sue Disney over the alligator attack that killed him.

Matt and Melissa Graves say they're still struggling to "comprehend why this happened" ... and admit, "As each day passes, the pain gets worse." Still, they released a statement Wednesday morning saying they will not pursue a lawsuit.

Instead they plan to open the Lane Thomas Foundation "to keep his spirit alive."

The Graves were not specific about the foundation's purpose or if Disney was funding it ... but you gotta figure.

Taylor Swift Calls BS on Kanye He Broke the Law

7/20/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0717-taylor-swift-kanye-west-tmzTaylor Swift is not waving the white flag in her war with Kanye West over the secret audio recording ... our Taylor sources say she may still file a police report because she says Kanye committed a felony.

As we reported, Kanye had Taylor on speaker when he recorded her as they spoke about his song "Famous," and there were clear voices in the room from the camera crew as well as producer Rick Rubin ... as such, they could all overhear the conversation so the law does not prohibit the recording.

But Taylor sources say she had NO IDEA Kanye had her on speaker. Although she could hear other voices she assumed they could not hear her, so she believes Kanye had a legal duty to ask permission to record her, and by not doing so he violated the criminal law.

Taylor is still deciding whether she'll file a police report.

What's more ... we're told Taylor wants them to bring it on ... the call lasted a full hour and Kim was very selective in what she posted. Taylor wants the entire conversation released, because everyone would hear -- Kanye never said he'd call her a "bitch" in the song. We've listened to the tape and the word "bitch" is never mentioned.

We're told she's also upset Kanye made the song sound lighthearted, when in fact it's mean-spirited. Taylor's rep said in a statement ... Kanye never asked Taylor for approval -- which the tape proves -- but she believes he was deceptive. 

On the call ... Kanye promises to send her an advance copy of the song, which he did not do. Our Taylor sources say Kanye knew if she heard it before it was released, she'd pitch a fit.
