Judge Joe Brown

I Was Living Like a Slave

... Jail Sentence Ends

9/1/2015 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0901-judge-joe-brown-facebookJudge Joe Brown's back on the outside after spending 5 days in what he calls "slave quarters."

The ex-TV judge completed his sentence in Memphis Tuesday morning, and ripped the jail experience. JB told People, "Jail's jail. It's boring, it's dirty, but I survived. I'm breathing free air."

As we reported ... Brown was locked up for contempt of court -- he went off on the judge last year when he was an attorney on a child support case.

Despite the conditions ... Joe says he'd do it all over again to stand up for his client, and blamed the judge for being impatient.

Janet Jackson's emotions started pouring out on the first night of her "Unbreakable" tour ... which she kicked off in Vancouver Monday night.

As for what everyone really came to see -- 49-year-old Janet's still pulling off her signature dance moves.

Taylor Swift

Sings Over Felony Assault Onstage

... Fan Busted for Brawl

9/1/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Swift never broke stride as a crazed fan jumped onstage and went toe-to-toe with her security force in a fight so nasty ... bones were broken. 

The intense brawl went down Saturday night at San Diego's Petco Park, and law enforcement sources tell us 26-year-old Christian Ewing snuck into the concert -- repeatedly evading security guards trying to toss him. 

We're told Ewing eventually charged onto the stage just as Taylor was runway strutting during "Style." Check out the video ... 4 security guards immediately pounced on him, but he put up a hell of a fight.

The guards eventually dragged him away -- but one guard broke a rib. Ewing was booked for felony and misdemeanor battery, and obstruction. His bail is set at $35k.

Besides a quick glance ... Taylor was able to shake it off.

Porsha Williams

Kicked In The Gut

... By 'RHOA' Co-Star

9/1/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0831-porsha-williams-cyntha-bailey-TMZ-01'Real Housewives of Atlanta' has figured out a way to replace NeNe Leakes ... with a good old fashioned bitch fight. 

We're told Porsha Williams was on a boat in ATL with fellow castmate Cynthia Bailey when things got hot. The 2 women began arguing about nothing and Porsha started calling Cynthia a bitch. Cynthia tried to disengage, walking to the other side of the boat, but in true form Porsha followed.

Porsha got in Cynthia's face, and that's when Cynthia exercised self-defense, kicking Porsha in the stomach. Producers came in before Porsha could react and restrained her.

As for injuries ... Porsha went to the hospital, where she scored pain meds.

And big surprise ... the fight was captured on camera.

Chris Brown

My Baby Mama's Got Terrible Judgment

In Boyfriends

9/1/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0831-chris-brown-king-ba-TMZ-Instagram-01Chris Brown is chomping at the bit to face his baby mama in custody court ... and the biggest weapon in his arsenal is the woman's boyfriend. 

Chris and Nia Guzman will fight it out in 2 weeks. She wants full custody of 1-year-old Royalty and visitation for Chris, BUT only if it's monitored. She says he's a bad guy who hangs with criminals and smokes weed. Chris wants joint custody. 

But we're told Chris thinks her argument will boomerang right back in her face, because her boyfriend, King Ba -- the guy who lived with her and is even named on Royalty's birth certificate -- is a wanted man ... on the run for felony forgery

We're told Chris is eager to tell the judge Nia has terrible judgment ... hooking up with a con man.

As we first reported, Chris believes Nia's real motivation has nothing to do with custody ... she wants to squeeze more child support out of him. He's currently paying $2,500. She wants $15k.

As for Nia, her rep tells us, she's no longer with King Ba.

EXCLUSIVE

0831_paris_rave_launch2If Mother Teresa knew how to spin records, it would've looked like this -- Paris Hilton giving underprivileged kids what they really need ... a face full of foam and sick beats.

Paris packed Club Amnesia in Ibiza -- where she's doing her Summer residency -- with dozens of children who got to party their tiny little faces off. She teamed up with APNEEF (a local center for kids with disabilities) to throw the bash. We're told they raised $100k for the group.

If the foam cannon, strobe lights, and glow sticks weren't enough ... the mini-ravers also got soft drinks and games.

Don't worry, the kid session ended at 7 PM -- y'know ... before things get REALLY weird in Ibiza.

WWE Shooting

Cop Guns Down

Dangerous, Obsessed Fan

8/31/2015 1:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0831-wwe-shooting-TWITTER-01A deputy opened fire on a man outside the WWE's training center in Orlando -- seriously injuring the guy ... who has a history of bizarre incidents at the WWE.

An Orange County Sheriff's deputy confronted Armando Montalvo at the WWE Performance Center on Monday afternoon. The situation reportedly turned violent, and that's when the deputy fired. 

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, the wrestling org. got a restraining order against Montalvo earlier this month after a string of violent run-ins at the facility. Earlier this summer, the WWE says Montalvo spread his feces and urine on the building. He even posted video of himself mixing the human waste and reduced fat milk in a bucket.

On multiple occasions ... he allegedly showed up in a wrestling outfit, banged on windows, and threatened to kick everyone's ass because they wouldn't hire him. One of the times he was swinging a large chain, and police had to subdue him at gunpoint.

Just 5 days ago, Montalvo posted a video of himself outside the building saying he was going to go ask for a job. He said, "What's the worst they can say?"

Montalvo had to have surgery after Monday's shooting.

  

Justin Bieber

Sobbing Was Real

Jitters Got Best of Me

8/31/2015 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber wasn't crying crocodile tears ... he really did get choked up and overcome with emotion when his VMA gig ended, and he's blaming his nerves for the sobfest.

Sources at the award show tell TMZ ... the Biebs was super nervous before his big "What Do You Mean?" performance ... because it's been five years since he last sang at the VMAs. 

Although Justin included a message about his "journey" -- with clear religious undertones -- we're told his break down was more about a sense of relief that he got through the comeback performance.

Justin recovered just fine from his butterflies though -- one video posted on Shots showed him onstage at Henry's singing his new hit again. No tears this time.
