Aaron Carter Threatened By Publicist Stop Talking Crap on Me, Or Else!!!

8/15/2017 7:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Carter's life is spiraling out of control, and he's spreading lies about his former publicist to cover it up ... according to a threatening legal letter obtained by TMZ.

Jon Lewandowski's lawyers fired off the ultimatum to Carter Monday, threatening to sue if he doesn't stop making "false, fabricated and defamatory statements." According to the letter ... Aaron's made claims that Lewandowski stole money from him and damaged his career.

Lewandowski's lawyers claim the opposite is true -- that Carter actually owes him money for repping him as his publicist and manager. According to the letter, he had to sever ties with the singer due to his "increasingly alarming and reckless behavior," and because he made threats of violence.

The letter makes it clear ... Aaron needs to stop talking trash about Lewandowski -- specifically to the media -- or he'll face legal consequences.

We've reached out to Aaron's camp ... no comment.

Bella Thorne's Ex Gregg Sulkin My New Chick Is Twerk-Tastic

8/15/2017 7:10 AM PDT

Bella Thorne's ex Gregg Sulkin is getting a lot more booty these days, because he's moved on to twerk master Lexy Panterra.

The two got in some vintage shopping at the open air Melrose Trading Post in L.A. Gotta give Gregg a pat on the back ... they say one man's junk is another man's treasure ... and Lexy's gotta whole lot.

People thought Gregg and Bella had reunited when he started popping up all over her Instagram this summer after her Cannes charade with Scott Disick went awry.

It's interesting ... Lexy and Bella are good friends too, after appearing in Tyler Perry's "Boo! A Madea Halloween" We're guessing ... no hard feelings.

Anthony Scaramucci Condemns Charlottesville Violence As for Trump ...

8/15/2017 6:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Anthony Scaramucci thinks there's no place in our society for neo-Nazi's and white supremacists, but he doesn't take that extra step and urge Trump to cut them from his base.

We got The Mooch Monday in NYC at the Hunt & Fish Club, which he partly owns ... and he joined the chorus, agreeing Trump should have come out earlier and condemned the hate groups in Charlottesville

Scaramucci also confirmed our earlier story ... that he's working with a Hollywood producer on a sitcom idea, with the working title "Attack of the Swamp Monsters" ... a story about a guy from Wall Street who comes to D.C. and gets attacked by political hacks who want him gone ... hmmmm, sounds familiar.

Scaramucci also has a thing or 2 to say about LGBTQ rights.

Khloe Kardashian Strip Club Face-Off ... With Blac Chyna

8/15/2017 6:29 AM PDT

If Khloe Kardashian and Blac Chyna are in the same strip club at the same time, but nobody sees them together on the inside ... is it still awkward?

We got Khloe and her man, Tristan Thompson, entering Ace of Diamonds in WeHo Monday night ... and her brother's ex/baby mama, Blac Chyna, wasn't far behind. It seems everyone was just there for a good time too -- Chyna wasn't working.

As we reported, Rob Kardashian and Blac are in the process of settling child custody for their daughter, Dream ... but we doubt that topic came up in convo if Khloe and Chyna chatted inside.

Then again ... ya never know.

Rapper Nipsey Hussle and photographer Tommy Incredible were also in the house.

Justin Bieber Floyd's My Boy, But ... He Ain't KO'ing McGregor!

8/15/2017 1:00 AM PDT

Even Floyd Mayweather's closest friends don't think the boxer has a real shot of knocking out Conor McGregor next weekend ... just ask Justin Bieber

Mayweather told the media last week he's gunning to finish the UFC star long before the 12th round when they clash on August 26. Tons of boxing experts are also predicting a K.O.

But not Biebs. 

The singer hit up Runyon Canyon for his own workout when he poo-poo'd the knockout talk -- though it's clear he's still pickin' Floyd to get the W. 

Bieber's been hardcore Team Mayweather for years -- and even walked the boxer into the ring for the Pacquaio fight. 

'Deadpool 2' Stuntwoman's Death Serves As A Reminder ... Hollywood Can Be Dangerous

8/15/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The tragic death of a stuntwoman on the set of "Deadpool 2" has reminded us that Hollywood stunts can quickly go awry, and they often have through the years.

We took a look back at some of the most brutal (and sometimes fatal) stunts that actors and stunt doubles put themselves through for the sake of the job ... and the aftermath ain't pretty.

From Dan Bilzerian's porn star rooftop toss in 2014 that left the woman with a shattered foot to the controversial mishandling of a pup on the set of "A Dog's Purpose" earlier this year and everything in between ... this week's latest accident, which left road racer Joi 'SJ' Harris dead, makes the message clear to Tinseltown's performers: BE CAREFUL!!!

That means you too, Tom Cruise

Ne-Yo Grabs Mic from Amateur at Karaoke Bar!!!

8/15/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ne-Yo obviously subscribes to the mantra, "anything you can do, I can do better" ... because he showed an amateur at a karaoke bar how it's done!!!

The singer hit up The Good Nite bar in North Hollywood early Sunday morning. Everyone was gettin' down as some dude onstage started singing Ne-Yo's "Because of You."

Then, out of nowhere, Ne-Yo joined the dude onstage, grabbed the mic and showed him how it's done. It's pretty awesome ... Ne-Yo busts out an impromptu performance and then bros out with the rook.

That's how it's done, Bieber.

'Deadpool 2' Dead Stuntwoman Identified Professional Motorcycle Racer

8/14/2017 5:36 PM PDT

The stuntwoman who was killed on the set of "Deadpool 2" has been identified ... and she was a professional road racer.

The victim was Joi "SJ" Harris, a professional motorcycle racer from Brooklyn, NY and the first African-American licensed female in the sport ... her family confirms to TMZ. 

She was not a member of the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists -- a Canadian actors union. "Deadpool 2" was also her first film as a stunt driver.

We broke the story ... Harris lost control of her motorcycle during filming in Vancouver, which sent her airborne through a glass window of a ground floor studio. Eyewitnesses say the brakes were never applied ... and she was also not wearing a helmet. She died on the scene

Weeks before her tragic death, Harris tweeted she had just fully healed from an injury involving her wrist and was ready to ride again. She had also fallen from a motorcycle before and filmed the fall. 

It's unclear how old Harris was at the time of her death. Still ... RIP

Tiger Woods Traces of Weed In System ... During DUI Arrest

8/14/2017 3:58 PM PDT
Breaking News

Tiger Woods had 5 different drugs in his system at the time of his DUI arrest -- including painkillers and THC, the main chemical compound in marijuana. 

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office released the toxicology report from the May 29 arrest -- in which Tiger was whacked out of his mind when officers found his car on the side of the road. 

The report shows Tiger tested positive for Hydrocodone (painkiller, generic form of Vicodin), Hydromorphone (powerful painkiller known as Dilaudid), Alprazolam (aka Xanax), Zolpidem (sleeping pill also known as Ambien) and THC. 

Woods had chalked up the arrest to an unexpected reaction to prescription medication -- "I didn't realize the mix of medications affected me so strongly."

He never mentioned weed. 

Woods announced he was getting treatment after the arrest and later struck a deal with prosecutors to enter a DUI diversion program

The program essentially means Woods gets 12 months probation and he's required to complete DUI education classes.

Taylor Swift Verdict Beats DJ's Ass In Butt Grab Trial

8/14/2017 3:48 PM PDT
Breaking News

Taylor just issued this statement, "I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration ... [my attorneys] and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support through this four-year ordeal..."

Taylor went on, "I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves."

Taylor Swift just got very important new fans ... and they just unanimously gave her a huge win in her butt groping trial.

The jury ruled David Mueller did indeed commit sexual assault by grabbing her butt at a meet and greet after a 2013 Denver concert. They gave her $1, which is what she was asking.

The jury also ruled Taylor's mother and staff did not intentionally interfere with Mueller's employment.

As we reported ... Tay filed her $1 countersuit against the former DJ on principle.

Taylor was in court to hear the verdict. She hugged her mom and her attorneys. As for her mom ... she cried.

Swift testified during the trial and was unmovable, calling BS on Mueller's claim that all he did was touch her rib cage. She says he latched on to her bare ass underneath her skirt.

Mueller had sued Swift for defamation, claiming her allegations cost him his job. The judge threw out his case against Taylor, Friday, saying he never proved during the trial she directly made him lose his job.

D. L. Hughley Trump was Late on Neo-Nazi Rebuke Fam Has History of Racism

8/14/2017 3:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

D. L. Hughley's not surprised by Donald Trump's belated rebuke of white supremacists ... because he believes the Trumps have roots in racism.

We got D. L. Monday at LAX and asked what he made of Trump's timing to come out and explicitly denounce white supremacists after violence in Charlottesville -- and he had a simple explanation.

The comedian cites reports that Trump's late father, Fred Trump, was arrested in Queens in 1927 after a KKK riot there ... although Trump has denied his dad had any involvement.

Either way ... D.L. thinks the country knows where the Prez stands on race, and it's time Americans looked themselves in the mirror on the issue.
