Deion Sanders' Wife Pilar Arrested For Domestic Violence
(TMZ) Pilar Sanders has been arrested for domestic violence after allegedly attacking Deion Sanders in their Texas home on Monday afternoon ... TMZ has learned.

According to the Colin County Jail website ... Pilar was booked for "assault family violence." As TMZ reported, NFL Hall of Famer Deion claims his estranged wife, Pilar and her friend jumped him in his bedroom earlier today. Deion says two of his sons witnessed the alleged attack.

Although Pilar and Deion are going through a bitter, BITTER divorce ... they are still living together in their suburban Dallas home.

Deion told TMZ Pilar had been taken to the hospital immediately after the incident -- claiming she needed medical treatment -- but she is now in police custody.

Deion claims he didn't harm Pilar, and only "defended" himself until he was able to call police. See the mug shot here.

Prison Break Star's Fight With Ex Caught On Video
(TMZ) Surveillance video shows Lane Garrison slapping Ashley Mattingly square in the face after he waited for her outside her apartment -- a much different story from the one Lane told his attorney after his arrest for domestic violence.

TMZ obtained a copy of the building security camera recordings from Saturday ... and the full video shows the "Prison Break" star sitting outside his ex-gf Ashley's Beverly Hills apartment building until she arrives home. When Ashley drives into the building's garage ... Lane is seen stumbling as he runs after her.

Lane and Ashley are then seen walking into the building together, but clearly arguing as they get into an elevator. Ashley seems to be asking Lane to leave ... but when he refuses, she gets off the elevator -- and then things get physical.

Just outside the elevator -- in the apartment lobby -- Lane is seen grabbing Ashley's arm with his left hand ... and then slapping her face with his right. After a few more seconds of struggling ... Lane runs out of the building.

In the final clip ... Lane is seen chucking what we believe is Ashley's mobile phone into the street, and then stumbling up the front stairs and leaving.

Yesterday, Garrison's attorney Harland Braun said Garrison told him he was in the building to dog sit for a friend, and just happened to run into Ashley in the lobby. Braun says Garrison admitted there was an argument, but claimed he did not harm Ashley.

Garrison was arrested for felony domestic violence -- and has yet to post his $50,000 bail. He is also on a parole hold because of his manslaughter conviction. Watch the video here.

Take 6 25th Anniversary Tour Dates
Take 6 are celebrating their 25th anniversary with global tour dates this summer and fall in support of the recently released album, One.

The music video for the album's title-track features cameos by Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, Lalah Hathaway and Lil Fizz from B2K. Their camp sent over these details along with the tour dates:

One is Take 6's first project without Cedric Dent, who retired from the group last year. "Cedric had taken a position with MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN) which didn't allow him to go out on the road during the school year and kind of limited him only to the weekends and that's if it worked for the schedule," says Kibble. "So we decided it was best to find a person to step in and cover him when he couldn't be there. We actually had a pool of three people we used over the years. Khristian Dentley was one of those people called on to step in. He did it beautifully and had a lot of energy. In standing in for Cedric, we were able to learn his personality and he was able to learn the music. After seven years, Cedric decided to go full time into academia and when he did, Khristian was already primed to step in behind him." more on this story

Scarface Star Arrested for DUI
(TMZ) "Scarface" actor Angel Salazar -- the guy who played Tony Montana's cocaine-retrieving amigo Chi Chi -- was arrested for DUI in Brooklyn last week ... TMZ has learned.

According to court records ... Chi Chi was behind the wheel of a 1999 Volvo Sedan which was seen swerving all over the road just after midnight on Thursday.

When cops approached the Volvo, officers say Chi Chi appeared hammered and reeked of booze.

Chi Chi eventually took a breathalyzer test ... which showed his blood alcohol level was a .121 ... well above the .08 limit. The actor was arrested on the spot and hauled to a nearby jail ... where he was booked on 3 counts of DUI.

TMZ spoke with Chi Chi ... who admitted he had been drinking earlier that night ... but says he simply didn't believe he was too intoxicated to drive.

Chi Chi says he thought he may have gotten off the hook when one of the officers recognized him from the movie ... and pulled up the actor's photo on his cell phone -- but no cigar.

He is currently out on bail and awaiting his court date. more on this story

NFL Star Braylon Edwards Settles Slander Lawsuit
(TMZ) NFL star Braylon Edwards just settled a slander lawsuit that he claimed cost him a $15 million NFL contract -- but he's being magnanimous about it ... and donating his settlement money to charity, TMZ has learned.

The former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver filed a $14 million suit against a Detroit restaurant and several employees for slander and extortion back in 2011... claiming their false accusations about him being involved in a bar fight cost him a HUGE contract deal with an NFL team.

Edwards reached a settlement with everyone involved and dropped his suit last month. Sources close to Edwards tell TMZ he was happy to put an end to the matter because he wants to take this time to focus on football instead. Edwards is currently a free agent.

According to our sources, Edwards took the settlement money and established scholarships for 100 kids. more on this story

Charlie Sheen Stars On Two and A Half Men Billboards
(TMZ) Ashton Kutcher is no Charlie Sheen ... and he never will be ... at least that's the message an L.A. TV network is trying to convey in a new marketing campaign.

KTLA in Los Angeles has plastered billboards all over town promoting the syndicated run of "Two and a Half Men." The billboards feature Charlie's face next to the words, "The Original" ... and if it seems like it's a shot at Kutcher ... that's because it is.

A mole at the station tells us ... the marketing people are playing off the premise that "Men" was simply better with Charlie. They believe fans miss him ... and will be more into the reruns because Charlie "was the show."

Basketball Wives Producers Angry About Face Slap Lawsuit?
(TMZ) "Basketball Wives" producers are reportedly angry about Jennifer Williams "face-slap" lawsuit.

Sources close to production tell TMZ ... Williams was already on thin ice with the show -- even before her slaptastic showdown with Nia Crooks -- but now that she has filed a lawsuit ... that ice is breaking FAST.

We're told producers think the suit is BS ... claiming Jennifer never had a problem with fighting before and insist this is a desperate publicity stunt to keep her storyline interesting -- securing her a place in season 5.

But a source tells us the stunt is not working, adding, "Filing broad lawsuits when you are as much to blame for the drama, is not the way to get your contract extended." more on this story
