Shia LaBeouf lives in fear of a woman who is convinced he discovered the theory of relativity ... a woman so deranged she threatened to blow up his house.
Shia just got a restraining order against Graciela Nahle ... who apparently showed up at his house eating watermelon on the driveway and when the actor asked her to leave she screamed, "I am going to blow up your house! I am going to blow up the world! You are Albert Einstein and we belong together."
According to the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Nahle showed up at Shia's house 3 times and he fears for his safety.
She's been a thorn in Shia's side for months, once showing up with an infant in her arms ... claiming to have been best buds in a previous incarnation.
She's been previously arrested for making criminal threats against the actor.
Nahle has been ordered to stay 100 yards clear of Shia.

Bobby Womack's Family
If You Think We're Broke Now ...
9/17/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Singer Bobby Womack left behind a massive debt when he died in June -- including a huge child support judgment -- and now his family is trying to figure out how to pay it.
Bobby's widow, Regina, filed court docs in L.A. showing he owed $250K in back child support for two sons living in Ft. Wayne, IN -- one is 14 and the other an adult. He also had an unpaid loan for $400K when he died.
But Womack didn't leave much in the way of assets -- according to the docs he had $52K in cash and $7,250 in personal belongings, which included some jewelry and a 1974 Buick.
Regina says Womack also had music rights and royalties valued around $350K -- which will help pay down the debt -- if she can capitalize on renewed interest in his music since his death.
But Regina's a realist ... admitting the value of Bobby's music could fade quickly. In other words, help a sister out ... buy some Bobby tunes now!

Not Everyone 'Membas

Daniel Fishel's old “Boy Meets World” co-stars came out to show her some love at her book signing ... which is awesome. Now, whether the book is an awesome just depends on who you ask -- as the guys found out.

Linkin Park Fans
Too Young & Drunk, You're
Sunk With Cops
9/16/2014 4:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Linkin Park's teenage fans will be shown the door en masse Tuesday night ... if they don't obey the zero tolerance underage drinking policy at the band's SoCal concert.
Chula Vista PD just announced the band's gig at the Sleep Train Amphitheater tonight would be patrolled by extra cops looking to boot underage boozers ... inside and outside the venue. Illegal party animals will also be ticketed.
CVPD says the 21 and over crowd will also get 86'd immediately if they're visibly wasted. No warnings, no second chances ... and no refunds.
The venue's getting famous for its tough stance against concert boozers -- as cops went into crackdown mode earlier this year for Journey, Blake Shelton, One Republic, Nine Inch Nails, Rascal Flatts, and ... for some strange reason ... those always-wild Dave Matthews Band fans.
LP fans, you've been warned -- don't get sloshed before you mosh.

Trina's a Hypocrite
She's a Homewrecker Too
9/16/2014 12:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Trina has some nerve hating on Khloe Kardashian for stealing French Montana away from her ... because Trina did the exact same thing to French's wife ... so claim friends of French (FOF).
Trina's blasting French and Khloe in a new song "F*** Love" ... "You can keep that purse, you can keep that whip, you can have that bitch."
But FOF say the song should have been called "Karma" ... because she started banging French while he was still married.
We're told French had feelings for Trina ... but she was never "his main girl" ... so it's a case of no harm, no foul.
Final shot ...FOF say Trina's new song is a lame attempt to jump start her career off French and Khloe.
NFL/CBS Deceived Everyone
I NEVER Signed on for Football

Rihanna is livid at the NFL and CBS ... claiming the league and the network had no right to make it look like she was part of the Ravens/Steelers Thursday night pre-game show ... and had no right to single her out when it was scrapped.
Sources connected with Rihanna tell TMZ ... the singer was pissed when someone sent her the joint NFL/CBS press release last week, with the headline, "CBS & NFL Network 'Run This Town' for Thursday Night Football Open with Music Featuring Rihanna & Narration by Don Cheadle."
In fact Rihanna never did anything special for the game ... all CBS/NFL did was license a Jay Z song that featured Rihanna.
Rihanna's rep tells TMZ, "Due to the misuse and misrepresentation of Rihanna's name and participation in connection to CBS TNF, CBS was not allowed to license and utilize the song 'Run This Town.' Roc Nation made the decision to not grant the song’s usage."
Translation: Because her name was used to promote the show, she felt she then had the right to block the production.
Rihanna also made it clear on social media Tuesday ... she is also angry that CBS yanked the production and insinuated it was because she was the victim of domestic violence.
CBS's plan was to use the Jay Z song along with a voiceover by Don Cheadle that would be customized for each match up -- but CBS said today the song will NOT be used.
We called CBS and the NFL ... so far, no comment.

Blows More Reds Than Communist Hooker

Dwight Howard might be color blind -- 'cause officials in Florida say he ran 10 RED LIGHTS in 2-and-a-half years -- and now his license has been suspended ... TMZ Sports has learned.
According to official records, the NBA superstar was captured by those red light cameras in Orange County, FL over and over again ... starting in 2012, when he was busted 9 times in 10 months.
Then, after a year-and-a-half without a violation, Howard struck again in 2014 -- blowing through another red light on July 1st ... his 10th overall infraction.
Officials from the Orange County Clerk of Courts tell us ... Howard's license can be reinstated if he pays a $285 fine.
We're guessing he can afford it.
We reached out to Howard's reps for comment -- so far, no word back.
