'Walking Dead' Star

Goes Ballistic on NYC Subway

5/1/2015 5:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Chad L. Coleman -- an actor who famously played Tyreese on "The Walking Dead" and Cutty on "The Wire" had a complete meltdown Friday on a New York City subway train.

Coleman is screaming, making sure everyone knows he's Chad L. Coleman from "The Walking Dead" and "The Wire." His rant is nonsensical and ear-shattering loud.

You see passengers recoil and eventually the seats around him are empty.

We spoke with Coleman, who told us he heard a guy and a girl on the train talking, trying to figure out where they knew him. He says the guy told the girl, "No, we don't know that n*****," and that set him off.

As for the screams about humanity, he says he was referencing the problems in Baltimore.

He says he was sober on the train.

N.W.A. Photog

Dear MTV, Express Yourself

WITHOUT Jacking My Photos

5/2/2015 12:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0501-nwa-viacom-wiki-01The guy who shot the most iconic image of N.W.A. says the same company keeps ripping off his classic work with the rap legends ... so now he's trying to take 'em down in court. 

In the docs, Howard Rosenberg says at least 3 of his shots popped up on MTV.com and BET.com -- which are both owned by Viacom. It's deja vu for Rosenberg ... who points out he also sued Viacom in 2011 for the same thing, and eventually settled.

Rosenberg says his N.W.A. pics are so valuable because they were shot in 1989 -- right before Ice Cube left the group. So he says they're rare shots of the whole lineup -- Cube, Dr. DreEazy-E, DJ Yella, and MC Ren.

Howard says he already fired off a warning letter to Viacom, which deleted the images from its websites ... but they still haven't paid him a dime.

He's now asking a judge to make the media giant cough up his cash and stop using his pics once and for all.

Adrien Broner

Cuffed in Vegas

For Fashion Felony

5/1/2015 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Boxing champ Adrien Broner was handcuffed and detained by cops in Las Vegas Thursday night, but not arrested ... and his people say it's all because an "a**hole security guard" didn't like the way he was dressed.

People in Adrien's camp tell TMZ Sports ... the 3-time world champ and 7 members of his posse went to Tao nightclub in the Venetian and plunked down $11k for a table. They say the host took the money and let them in, so they took the escalator up to the club and then things went south.

They say a security guard stopped them and said they had to leave because they weren't dressed properly, claiming their jeans and shoes were a deal breaker. Adrien got pissed and said it was hip-hop night and Fabolous was performing, so they were not only dressed appropriately but others were wearing the same thing.

The guard wasn't moved and ordered them to leave. Adrien refused so the guard called the cops.

Police came, cuffed Adrien and took him to a room. His people say police held the boxer for 20 minutes, let him go and then Adrien and his crew left the hotel.

Check out the video ... you hear Adrien say, "They're mad 'cause I'm rich" ... something that seems to be a theme when Broner meets cops.

Broner was arrested in Ohio back in January for DUI. The boxer humblebragged to the arresting officer he was "blessed" because he made more than $100 million in his career. He pled not guilty and the case is pending.

So far no comment from Tao.

Vine Star Cameron Dallas

All Clean After Messy Paint Arrest

5/1/2015 4:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Vine star Cameron Dallas certainly isn't the next Picasso but his teen fans won't have to worry about him being a convict either because he just dodged the jail bullet.  

Cameron will not be prosecuted for allegedly throwing a paint can off his 6th story apartment balcony and nearly missing a woman below. Prosecutors tell us there just wasn't enough evidence he threw the can, despite cops insisting he did the deed. 

Our photog got Cameron out in Hollywood Thursday night and he insisted he was wrongly fingered for the offense. In fact, he says no one threw a paint can, and cops were trying to frame them. Get it ... paint, framed?

TMZ broke the story ... Cameron was arrested with two friends back in March. In addition to the paint can allegation, cops said he vandalized his apartment by covering it with paint, but that all turned out to be a civil matter ... covered by his security deposit. 

Advice to Cameron ... stick to 6 second videos.

LeAnn Rimes

Accidentally Sets Off Airplane Fire Alarm

... MY BAD!!!

5/1/2015 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

LeAnn Rimes is lucky she's famous ... because most people would be in serious trouble if they set off the fire alarm on an airplane, but she was able to joke about it.

The country music/reality TV star was on a flight to Los Angeles, when she took a bathroom break to freshen up. As she explains it: "Leave it up to me to set off the fire alarm in the airplane bathroom w/ @theDrybar dry shampoo #purecomedy #firsttimeforeverything."

Our photog was waiting for LeAnn when she landed, and she laughed off the whole thing -- although it sounds like the flight staff wasn't as amused ... at first, anyway.

Check out how LeAnn diffused the situation, and uh ... nice hair?

Tara Reid

I Dig Elizabeth Banks ...

No Clue Why She's Coming for My Neck

EXCLUSIVE

Elizabeth Banks Disses Tara ReidWe don't wanna bury the lead here, so we'll just say it -- Tara Reid is gonna keep things classy ... when it comes to responding to Elizabeth Banks' huge unprovoked swipe at her career.

If ya missed it ... the "Pitch Perfect 2" star told The Hollywood Reporter, "I used to go to auditions with Tara Reid. So, you know we didn't all make it. We're not all still here."

Mind you ... Banks was not asked about Tara at all -- so no one was more shocked about the pot shot than Tara. She tells TMZ, "I've always been a fan of her work and that’s sad to hear she said those things about me."

Banks did go on to say ... "But I do love 'Sharknado.'"

Her attempted backstroke isn't fooling Tara, but she's still sticking to the high road. Tara says if she ran into E. Banks today she would "smile and say, hi."

Well played, Tara. "Sharknado 3" ... coming this summer!

Bruce Jenner

Sued for Wrongful Death

In Car Crash

5/1/2015 11:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner Crash LawsuitBruce Jenner has just been hit with a wrongful death lawsuit by the stepchildren of the woman who died in the Malibu car crash ... TMZ has learned.

The 2 adult stepkids of Kim Howe have filed a lawsuit, claiming Bruce was "careless and negligent" when he slammed into Howe's Lexus on PCH  back in February, causing it to careen into oncoming traffic where it collided head on with a Hummer.

As TMZ reported, law enforcement sources say video of the crash squarely lays blame on Bruce for being inattentive. They say he just wasn't looking when he struck the Lexus.

The lawsuit claims Bruce was speeding, however, that contradicts what law enforcement told us ... that Bruce was driving below the speed limit.

And as we reported, the 2 stepkids had virtually no relationship with Kim, and any damages they claim for her loss might be extremely hard to prove. They claim loss of affection, but friends who were close to Kim say there was no affection at all.  Kim had no other living relatives.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. is still investigating the crash, and the file will be sent over to the L.A. County D.A. for possible prosecution, although from what we hear, it's unlikely prosecutors will file.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

GET BENCHED

Forced to Wait for a Table!

5/1/2015 9:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0501_kim_kardashian_kanye_west_waiting_sushi_launch2The folks at Shibuya Sushi have cojones the size of Kim Kardashian's butt cheeks ... because they had the chutzpah to make KK and Kanye West sit outside and actually WAIT FOR A TABLE. The humanity!!!

The couple stopped off in Calabasas after Kim's appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" ... thinking they'd be able to grab a quick bite to eat. But the restaurant was full and Kimye was forced to hit the bench out front and wait ... for a whopping 30 minutes!

To add insult to injury, when they finally got seated ... it was at a table by the window which ain't great when you're photographed as much as they are.

FYI ... Shibuya Sushi is very well-reviewed on Yelp, but these pics are the best advertising ever.

Our sushi is so good, even Kimye will wait for it!

Beefin' With Colin Kaepernick

Calls QB a 'Hoe'

EXCLUSIVE

0501_colin-kaepernick_matt_barnes_tmz_gettyColin Kaepernick has a new enemy -- L.A. Clippers star Matt Barnes ... who just fired a shot at the QB on social media ... and sources tell us the animosity is very real. 

Barnes went on Instagram to congratulate Arik Armstead on being drafted by the SF 49ers last night ... and wrote, "Congrats to my young boy #ErikArmstead [sic] proud of you fam. Ur QB a hoe tho!!"

Clearly, the message was directed at Colin. 

Multiple sources close to Matt tell us the beef with Kaepernick goes back several years -- and stems from a situation where Matt felt "disrespected" by Colin. 

As one source extremely close to Barnes puts it -- "Matt hates his guts."

Tyson Beckford

Special Dong Delivery ...

Bumpin' For Chippendales

EXCLUSIVE

Supermodel Tyson Beckford let his ding dong dance during his stripper debut with the Chippendales dancers ... and you may need to take a seat.

At 44, Beckford is probably twice the age of the other guys, but he held his own during practice, and really got the crowd going during last night's preview. Fair warning: this video may mesmerize ... think snake charmer. 

When you snap out of it, you'll be happy to know he's the celebrity guest host for Chippendales at the Rio Casino in Vegas now through May 24th.

Sources say in the show he drops trou twice and it ALL COMES OUT ... but he cups it.

Of course we still have our favorite.
